Convention of Statesmen


Thanks a lot, Congress, for the Debt Debacle and Downgrade!

The blog I wrote on 29 July 2011, "What Barack Obama Left Out" clearly warned, as did every major news source worth their salt, that if Congress did not find, at minimum, $9 trillion in REAL cuts, not shadow cuts, we were faced with America's credit rating being downgraded. Specifically I wrote:
7. And that brings us to Standard & Poor and Moodys. Standard & Poor has said, very clearly, that unless they see a budget with real cuts to the tune of $9 to 10 trillion, they will downgrade America's credit. Again, none of the plans on the table, listed above, come ANYWHERE near to this. But still, the pontificating goes on, on Capitol Hill while they play at the crisis--while doing absolutely nothing!
We on Buy Back America, in addition to Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, every Republican candidate, Michele Malkin, Jedediah Bila, and more, warned everyone in Washington, D.C. who would listen, that Standard & Poor was dead serious about their warning.

Instead, they ignored our warning, even though Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Eric Cantor and every other blasted Senator and Congressman were told they had to take this seriously, that we had to have real cuts and to stop screwing around. I made several suggestions in the above mentioned blog, completely viable solutions, to get us back in line. I sent that blog to every one of them I could get it to through Twitter and Facebook, but nothing. Yes, there were a few who held strong, who understood that real danger was ahead for America, but they were ignored. They were mocked, scoffed at, and the American people were called terrorists by Joe Biden, hobbits by John McCain, and John Kerry demanded yesterday the media not allow us to be heard anymore.

What did all those lame-ass efforts do? Precisely what we warned, because we, the American people, are able to read, do math, and we know our history. Mainly because we weren't education into today's public school system. Standard & Poor didn't make it a secret what would happen if their warnings weren't taken seriously. Well now, here's your official notice. America is issuing YOU a warning. You sure as hell better take us seriously or every single blasted one of you who voted "Yes" on the Debt Debacle will be voted out of office if we can't have you impeached before 6 November 2012.

You have until 1 December 2011 to cut $9 trillion from our debt, and I mean REAL cuts, no more playing games or thinking you're fooling us. You're not! You never have. But I believe the United States having its credit rating downgraded from AAA to AA+ today should awaken a lot who were not awakened before. The day of doing "business as usual" which means "screwing the American people" is over. Done. You better understand you swore an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and there's the link to it in case you've never read it, and also violated the American people's trust in you.

Today, Reuter's reported:
Aug 5 (Reuters) - The United States lost its top-notch AAA credit rating from Standard & Poor's on Friday, in a dramatic reversal of fortune for the world's largest economy. 
S&P cut the long-term U.S. credit rating by one notch to AA-plus on concerns about growing budget deficits. 
U.S. Treasuries, once undisputedly seen as the safest investment in the world, are now rated lower than bonds issued by countries such as the UK, Germany, France or Canada. 
The outlook on the new U.S. credit rating is negative, S&P said in a statement, a sign that another downgrade is possible in the next 12 to 18 months. (Reporting by Walter Brandimarte; Editing by Jan Paschal)
I recommend you sit down with Senators Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and Jim DeMint immediately and get schooled on our how our government is supposed to run. Then, I recommend you tell all the special interests and lobbyists to go to hell, roll up your sleeves and fix this unholy mess you've created. And I do mean you better get serious, and get serious now! Your days are numbered as Senators and Congressmen, and that's just the plain truth.

America was handed down, generation to generation, from the founding generation who bled, suffered, sacrificed and died to give us the superior form of government outlined in the U.S. Constitution. The Bill of Rights was later added, to cement the constitutional rights of the American citizens, and those rights are inviolate, and yet you hammer away at them day in and day out. You will stop that now too. We're done allowing you to abuse the American people and tank our economy, thus our nation.

You know how to fix it, and if you don't, I can recommend a few people you can meet with to explain in detail how to get us out of this mess. We have a sacred obligation to protect and preserve this nation, you have violated that obligation. We, the American people already awakened to what we did, now you must do the same.

Let me close with these words written so long ago:
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
And this I do, for I cannot, nor will I, allow America to be taken down by the likes of such as you, or anyone else for that matter, so help me God.
