U.S.A inc.

First, let me say this out loud, I do not trust Donald Trump as a person and especially for President of the United States of America.

In my lifetime, I have heard – “don’t trust the government” and “politicians only care about being re-elected,” “there are two people in this world – one who plays in the system and the other one plays to beat the system,” I could go on and on about how the government is here to step on our rights, invade our privacy or control our money.

So, how about we play a game of pretend.

Imagine one day, the President of the United States makes an appearance on your television screen while you were watching your favorite t.v program and says the following, “Good evening citizens – your Government has heard your concerns, Congress, the Senate and I all agree that we must fix our national debt. To do so, we have decided that we will sell our debt to Corporations in this great country.” In the next six months, we will auction off our national debt by portions. We will start with our defense budget. The corporation that bids the highest will  then be responsible for our defense for the next century. And, you will no longer have to pay taxes to the federal government for one century. Thank you and God bless the United States of America.” Your program continues on as if not interrupted with such interesting news.

All across America, citizens are scratching their heads, wondering what does this mean. Folks, finally start to have conversations about our debt rather than screaming at each other about who’s party is better. The media gives you detailed reasons why this is the best or worst idea. Large groups start to protest, “Don’t sell our debt to the Koch Brothers!” – “Wal-Mart can’t defend our borders!” –  “McDonalds can’t even defend their burgers!” Groups will protest the protesters, “I want my money!” and “I earned my money and you can’t have it!”

The media begins to tell you the three biggest Corporations that are interested in the defense debt. They give you the run down on each Corporation and why they would be best for our defense. They give you all the information you will need to make a sound judgement of who should win the defense budget. Corporations start to merge, Halliburton merges with Smith & Wesson. Bank of America merges with a private military company and their corporation is now called American Strong.

In fact, AS beat out Dick Smith & Wesson in the auction and is now our Military for our national defense. USA now has walls around our borders, our defense has the technology to track every move Putin makes. Equipment and weapons are now upgraded. North Korea is concerned. ISIL is using caution with their attacks on our allies.

For the first time in history, we start to realize this Corporate America may just work. AS sells the idea to the states – we can protect your neighborhoods, your city and your citizens. The States agree and the citizens are now happy that their is no longer a tax for police protection. Another merge is needed so American Strong merges with a technology company  and become known as American Strong Systems.

American Strong Systems sends a protection plan to every American. Each plan markets which sort of protection you are willing to pay. The Bronze protection plan is free to everyone  that provides security on the streets and neighborhoods, but would include a monitoring micro chip that is implanted in your skin. The Platinum plan provides home  and detail security. And, because you are willing to pay the Platinum plan – you won’t need a monitoring micro chip.

USA is now debt free and the President of the US is asked to step down by the CEOs of every corporation that purchased our debt. They had decided that there will be a USA board room instead of Legislative and Executive branches. Each CEO is a member of the USA board. They decide to keep the Judicial branch until the Supreme Court informs them that monitoring US citizens is a violation of their rights. The Board decides it wouldn’t be if the citizens are called employees. The Board then sends each American their new job description with their salary rate and benefits package. Each American employee is informed of who their manager and director will be for problems that may arise.

Some Americans are extremely happy – they weren’t able to find work, but now a job is offered to them. They now have health insurance and aren’t afraid of losing their homes. Some Americans aren’t happy, because their manager & director wanted them to work in Texas at their new facility. And, now must be separated from their husband or wife, because their spouse was assigned another position in other states.

I can write a whole fictional book on this issue, but my point is what kind of world do we want to create for ourselves? How do we improve our government without the bickering. How do we get two parties to unite and start working on important issues rather than acting like a bunch of kids on a school play ground? As for me, I would rather be a citizen of the USA than an employee of the USA. I want to vote and feel like I have a say of who I want to represent me.

What about you? Where do you stand? What would you like to see? Do you see the pros and cons of Corporations running our lives? Do you see the pros and cons  of why Corporations should not be able to buy our politicians? Do you see that our Government is our best option – we just to work together.

In 1856, I would have aligned myself with the Republican party. Abraham Lincoln was the leader to end slavery.  The Republican party supported Transcontinental Railroad, State University Program, National Currency and Protective Tariffs. Democrats who dominated the South opposed any big government deals. When did the parties switch? When did the South start calling themselves Republicans? Maybe I should do more research on this topic, but it has bugged me for years so right now, I just need to share my thoughts on this subject.

By, 1930 the parties switched. Or, did they? What if businesses were the real culprit? The railroad needed a railroad to get products out West. So, it was in their favor to align themselves with the Republican party. We needed a national currency so we can buy products the trains were delivering. We needed our country to purchase our own goods so the Protective Tariffs became effective to halt import sales.

After the businesses got what they wanted and didn’t want the government meddling in their business – were they able to persuade voters to change their tune? Today, corporations buy our politicians. They take our states hostage. States beg corporations to move to their state, because corporations help our economy. We need our people to work. But, if the state even announces a tax on our corporations – they threaten to leave the state. But, states need to balance their budgets so who gets taxed? We do, the working class.

Why do we continue to allow ourselves to get used and abused? Because, corporations will leave us and we know we can’t support ourselves without them. It is an abusive cycle. A cycle that can be broken if we the people unite as one.

So, I conclude Republicans were always republican because they were the corporations. They just manipulated the parties and blurred party lines and now I call myself a democrat. The party for the people.

Our Clinton Nightmare

I love Bill Clinton – sure, he disappointed me with the Lewinsky scandal, but I forgave him. And, I am certain he loves our country and fighting for the little guy. I just wish every voter would watch his 2012 DNC speech – his words were what I have been saying for the past 3.5 years. Sure, sometimes, numbers are  exaggerated, but dont’ we all do it? We exaggerate! His message was dead on.

Our Clinton Nightmare.

 

I vote Democratic, because I just don’t like this attitude!

I vote Democratic, because I just don't like this attitude!

I am a democrat, I am not on welfare. In fact, I am not a Democrat for social programs. Quite the opposite, I think we need more regulations on welfare, medicaid and food stamps. But, then for some reason i am stomping on people’s rights. But, I am sorry, if you receive from the government – the government should be able to regulate that commodity.

I am lazy

And, I think lazy people have the best ideas and inventions. I am always thinking – there has got to be an easier way. Sometimes, I can let my imagination get out of control and sometimes – I think my ideas are the bomb! Even if I am the only one that appreciates it.

Yesterday, I invented a power rolling sun visor for cars. Imagine sitting in your car and pushing a button and a sun visor rolls down over the wind shield. I know brilliant! Instead, we have to look under the seat for that awkward size of contraption and fight with it to stay in place.

Now, my problem is I am not going to call Chevy or Ford and share my idea. I am lazy. I just think the ideas and introduce the idea out in public hoping a go-getter, full of money and energy – thinks – I can do this! I am going to do this!

Am I a fool, most likely. I just don’t have know-how to get a job done. A few years ago, I invented a magnetic story book for children. I was lazy – I had to do a school project and thought what is the easiest and fastest way to get this project done. I didn’t realize – it was a great concept until I went to class and did my presentation. The instructor said, “You have a gold mine!” So, I contacted a lawyer – I met with him and gave him a retainer of $2,600 (money I really didn’t have) and there it sat – my retainer in la la land for months. Then I realized, I should pay my taxes, because they are due and this guy isn’t working on my pattan. So, I contacted the lawyer and told to him to scratch the idea.

A year later, in the book isle was a magnetic story book. I was devasted for a minute and then thought – I had a good idea. Since then, I invented flashlight umbrellas, portable backscratchers and other odd things.

Did you know that two people were working on the lightbulb at the same time? Rumor has it Edison tripped the other guy on the way to get the pattan office. I am kidding – I made that up. But, how is it two guys were working on it at the same time? I bet you a dollar that three guys were in a pub chatting away and the lazy guy said, “Ya know, someone needs to develop a permanent light – so we don’t have to go home with the sun goes down.” And, then the guys thought, “I could do this!” And, raced off to invent the lightbulb.

Now, I am coming to my point – Edison invented the light bulb, but did he do it all by himself? No, he did not. Did Mark Zuckerberg develop facebook all by himself? No, he stole the idea. Do you get where I am going? Companies and small business owners get help – they don’t do it all by themselves. Did Ford invent the Model-t? He got credit, but I bet you he had a friend with an idea – and he had the know-how.

So, anyone out there who has the know how to get powered rolling sun visors, get the job done!
