Ask A Horse – Presidents Propose, Congress Disposes

PI2012 #599 – Presidents Propose, Congress Disposes


“I think the most important factor in getting out of the recession actually is just the regenerative capacity of – of American capitalism.”

~  Warren Buffett

Liberty Lovers, Every American Taxpayer Now “Owes” “The (federal) State” $141,629, every citizen $51,598.  

“Everything government has it gets from you.” ~Lew Rockwell

Presidential Election 2012 Leaves America more divided than did Election 2008.  Electoral votes gave President Obama clear wins both times.  Election 2008 popular vote was 66.8million to 58.3million; Election 2012 looks to be 58.7million to 56.1million

“Between two groups of people who want to make different kinds of worlds, I see no remedy but force.” ~  Oliver Wendell Holmes

President Obama, Popular And electoral votes notwithstanding, must get his initiatives through Congress.  Election 2012 left Congressional power as it was before votes were tallied.  While Mr. Obama won a second term, his ‘mandate’ lost some ground.

“Nobody wants a judge to be subject to the political whim of the moment.” ~  Stephen Bryer

Americans Will Know Fairly soon where and how Mr. Obama intends to move America.  He would be wise not to ignore American voters who elect Congress as well as Presidents.  Mr. Obama may no longer legitimately blame his predecessor.

“The power to tax involves the power to destroy.” ~  Justice John Marshall

Americans, Despite Election 2012 outcomes, continue to face selective, arbitrary, and discriminatory legislation, taxation, and regulation.  Most egregious amongst them is direct taxation (property confiscation).

“Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil.  Capital in some form will always be needed.” ~  Mohandas Gandhi

People Intending To Live In Liberty do not allow legislators – or other public officials within These United States of America, to enact legislation or regulations requiring any private business to accept collective bargaining organizations. They stand by free markets and limited government.

Let Freedom Ring
