I don't watch because it is a political show.
I would be in favor of a president that released the following:
My fellow Americans. I know we are coming to the time that you are used to hearing and seeing a "State of the Union Speech". A speech that is rift
with political undercuts, campaigning and grandstanding. It serves no purpose to actually follow the requirements of the Constitution as stated in
Article II, Section 3. But rather a pulpit that has been become a place for the presidency to push their agenda.
I say no more. I say I will make available via internet my state of the union. In it I detail that the union is in dire straits. We have deep
economic problems. We have a failing education system. We have a failing manufacturing base. We have citizens that believe that the only course of
action is violence.
I understand. I truly do. We are facing tough economic times ahead. The majority of the problems have come about from your own government. We have
colluded with corporations. We have taxed the People to no extent. We have criminalized ever aspect of American life. We have failed you.
In this letter to Congress, I hope and pray that they understand the gravity of the situation that the United States of America is in.
In the coming weeks I will be utilizing the bully pulpit to push new incentives that will reign in the expansive Federal Government.
I will propose the following:
--Except for England and Japan, we will be closing all our foriegn bases by the end of 2011.-
-We will begin seeking private sector advice on how to ensure our elders a better or equal quality of life outside of Social Security.
-Our tax code is over bearing and unmanageable. Just ask a tax professional. I propose that Congress begin to serious look at alternatives. If they
do not, I will begin to pursue with the American public plans that do not involve the IRS. We have funded this country at the Federal level for 250+
years, we can continue that tread absent of the Federal Government.
-"Obamacare" is a joke. This bill will never make costs go down nor will it benefit you as a citizen. This bill will serve the big interest and
lobbyist that levied support for it. I propose we scrap the deal and begin an honest debate in regards to healthcare. I challenge ever American to
present an idea. Present a solution. Give your representatives something. This isn't a vote and be oblivious process. We must remain engaged
There is much more to talk about but this is not the time nor place. This is time for your president to inform Congress how we are doing as a whole.
I hope and pray that you all have taken the time to read and enjoy. I want not only 'water-cooler' discussion, but a national discussion. This is
your country. This is your land.
Thank you and god bless.
