The Great American Work Stoppage 8-16-2013
Over the last few years the American people have had grievances with the government. We have seen the formation of the Tea Party as well as Occupy Wall Street. Both of these organizations have protested to no avail. The response to these protests has been from ridicule, by the media and the politicians, to violence by the local police.
Remember when Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and her colleagues, walked through the protesters in Washington. They were on their way to pass Obama Care, against the wishes of the American people. She looked at the crowd with extreme distain as if she was our ruler and we were only peons. It was a Democratic vote that passed Obama Care in both the house and the senate while not one Republican voted for it. Now there are waivers being passed out all over the place, except to the American people. This cannot be a law if it applies to only one segment of the population.
There are numerous other things that have been placed on the backs of the American people and here is a short list; Obama Care, The Patriot Act, NDAA, Massive Ammo buys by the Department of Homeland Security, Spying on the American people by the CIA, NSA, the harassment of certain groups by the IRS, and then there is Benghazi where 4 Americans lost their lives and we still have no answers. The list goes on and on and on.
The people in Washington are taking away your freedoms and your wealth in order to line their pockets and the pockets of their friends. While you have to pay for Obama Care their friends get a pass. They get an extension and you get the shaft. You get to pay and they get to play. Wall Street makes massive gains and your paycheck goes down. Now many are getting their hours cut to part time so the corporations can avoid Obama Care. Small companies, which are the backbone of our economy, have to bear the burden of Obama Care while big corporations get a pass. Did you know that these employment gains that the President claims to have made are 70% part time. How are the American people going to survive unless they work several jobs, taking time away from their families and making them no more than forced labor? Maybe our national motto should go from, the home of the free land of the brave, to, do you want fries with that?
After 9-11 came the Patriot Act, you know the piece of legislation that allows the TSA to x-ray you and sexually assault you in Airports. Now Viper teams are rooming the country side doing spot checks on the American people with no probable cause, a violation of your 4th Amendment rights. They are also using the border patrol for these illegal stops. What’s next, will you have to get travel papers?
Now the new and improved NDAA that allows the government to detain American citizens indefinitely. Oh, they don’t have to charge you with a crime and you can’t have a lawyer or contact your family, a clear violation of your 5th Amendment rights. As Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) put it “sit down and shut up”. Need I say more?
It seems that the only way to get their attention is to hit them where it hurts, in the pocket. Let me explain. The Great American Work Stoppage is just that, a day when no one goes to work. Stay at home on April 15th, 2014. Do not take a sick or personal day that defeats the purpose. This is not only designed to shut down the businesses in the country but to deny the government the tax revenue that they would collect from your wages. If one day does not bring us results then in May we will make it two days, in June we make it three days, in July four days, and if this does not get their attention then in August we stay out until they are ready to listen to us, the American people.
Ladies and gentleman the genie has been out of the bottle for too long and it’s time that we shove it back in and put the cap on. It is no one’s fault but our own. Through complacency and a search for entertainment we have allowed those with an agenda to take our country away from us. While we were playing and didn’t have the time to watch what they were doing, they had focused on making themselves rich and powerful.
I know that not everyone will join us in our quest to return our Constitution to its proper place in government. But, if enough of us unite in a joint effort to take our Country back then we have a chance. Remember they can’t jail you for not going to work. At least not yet.
The people in Poland did it a number of years ago. If they can do it in a communist country, we can do it here. Maybe we should call this the polish solution.
