MY LETTER TO MY ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES REGARDING THE BUDGET/ECONOMIC CRISIS

Senator Crapo, Senator Risch, Representative Labrador,
July 28, 2011
RE: The budgetary/financial crisis
CC: Representative Simpson

I’m sending this letter to my elected representatives of Idaho at the National level.

First, I am a 55 year old man who has worked my whole life. I have owned my own businesses and worked in industry for over 35 years, as an individual contributor up to Directing large operations for private companies in organizations of over 150 people and controlling revenue streams of over 250 million dollars, and as a business owner.

I tell you this to let you know that I know how to manage money, how to make and achieve a budget, and how to control costs.

The current debt ceiling crisis is manufactured. Our nation takes in more than enough to meet our obligations and our essential needs. This is clear. Individuals trying to indicate that we are in danger of defaulting, or not meeting essential needs are either woefully ignorant of our economic situation, or purposely fearmongering so they can pursue their own personal or ideological agendas.

Well, I have had enough. I'm sick and tired of seeing my country so blatantly manipulated. I believe most others feel the same.

I am contacting you as one of your constituents, and one of your many “bosses.” We hire you through the ballot box. My vote for you in years past has hinged on a relative few fundamental principles:

  1. Fundamental moral principle (meaning the right to life endowed on us by our Creator, fundamental moral principles regarindg marriage, our gender, and God-given principles of behavior).
  2. National Security (militarily, economically, energy, and our sovereignty…including our borders)
  3. The second Amendment enumerating citizen’s right to keep and bear arms principally as a final defense against tyranny…from without or within.
  4. Government that governs least, governs best where the people make free will choices.

I watch to see who gets all four correct and know that if I can trust them there, it is likely that I will be okay elsewhere. And if not, the next election is coming.

My vote for you in the future will hinge on your actions with respect to these budgetary, economic issues.

It is no longer a time for compromise of any sort. Economically we are on a precipice and must turn around before we are dashed on the rocks. The very people most responsible for putting us here are determined to drive us off the cliff. I believe many of them are doing it with a will to “fundamentally” change our nation.

Do no flinch are give in to their tactics. We know what is right:

  1. Do not borrow more than you can repay within a reasonable and economically sound time frame. Do not borrow any more. DO NOT RAISE THE DEBT CEILING.
  2. Stop spending our money on unwarranted and damaging programs. Do not give it to foreign nations or potential belligerents. Do not fund ludicrous research into the mating habits of snails, or whether a species in a sub-habitat may become extinct there when they flourish elsewhere. Do not give it to special interests who buy influence, stop funding the endowment of the arts, stop funding national public radio. The list could go on and on. CUT THEM NOW! CUT SPENDING DRASTICALLY.
  3. CAP sending at a modest rate of GDP. No more, unless out and out war or national disaster befalls us...not including when some special interest does not get what they want.
  4. BALANCE THE BUDGET! Give us a balanced budget or we will find those who will. PASS THE BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT.
  5. Reform the tax laws. Make it 10% for everyone. No matter what the source. No loop holes. We would cut a huge expense in maintaining the current monstrosity and agency costs do so, and we would bring in more money than we currently do.

Again, these things are straight forward and they are things we expect our politicians to not only hang their hats on, but to not compromise on. Hold up business rather than ruin it for the future.

Finally…a simple suggestion. Pass the following and destroy the progressive, liberal, socialist element that has been trying to destroy our constitutional republic for the last 100 years.

THE US WELFARE REFORM ACT OF 2012
Any person receiving social welfare (not including social security or medicare) as a primary source of their means of living (a primary source being defined as anything over 25% of their total income), shall, for the duration that they receive such government largess, not be allowed to vote in any local, state, or federal election. Eliminating this basic conflict of interest, which enemies of this Republic use to demean and entrap entire segments of our population, will reform welfare and politics in this country for the good of the nation and her people.
Our founders understood human nature. That’s why the vote was only originally given to property owners, because they were the ones the government of that day had to fund the government and they wanted to make sure that the people only voted for what was necessary by those who were funding it. Make it so today and our nation will reform faster than anyone ever thought possible.

Sincerely,

Jeff Head

August 1, 2011 Update regarding the so-called "deal":

Senators Crapo and Ritrch,and Representative Labrador,

The "deal" with the dems is no deal.

Vote no.

It cedes the congressional responsibility on debt ceiling to the President unless a 2/3rds majority overrules it. I do not believe that is constitutional. it seems that most of the so-called "cuts" are coming from cutting the rate of future spending...which means they are not cuts at all. As to tax cuts, the Dems plan to allow the Bush tax cuts to end, thereby raising everyone's taxes.

I expect, per my letter of July 28th, my representatives to hold true to a common sense, obvious, sane economic line.

Do so, and live a balanced budget, or we the voters will find someone who will.

Do not borrow any more. The default scare tactics are a fallacy and a lie. We have more than enough revenue to cover it, to cover our military, sociail security and medicare. Start cutting from there to have us fall within the 200 billion we bring in.

Cut spending drastically to within our means and income.

Cap spending to a modest rate of GNP that would allow for a balanced budget in five years minimum in any case.

Pass the balanced budget amendment and send it to the states.

My vote hinges on these things...and the other things I always look to (fundamental moral principle, abiding the constitution according to the intent of those who wrote it, defense of this nation and its borders, defense of the unborn, and holding firm on the 2nd amendment)>

Sincerely,

Jeff Head
