To: Mr. Mark Hamilton & The Twelve Visions Party
From: E. Ray, Simi-Retired Special Education Instructor & Neothink® Society Member
Dear Mr. Hamilton,
I Believe Our Country Is Teetering On the Brink of Ruin & Desperately Needs the Constitutional Reform of the Twelve Visions Party Platform Initiated in 2012.
I am a Neothink® Society Member; I am an American Citizen; I am a Simi-Retired Special Education Instructor, however please note that there is no such thing as REAL retirement in our impoverished society due to the economic inflation as has been allowed by our elected Politicians. Now, even though attaining the quote, “Golden Years? Of Retirement!” – People just can’t afford to retire. I am an Impoverished Tax Payer; I am a Single Mom – A Head of Household; I am a Person of Hope! You will notice a semi-colon at the end of each statement, that is because each and every “I am” represents the current demographics of the “We the People” in Americas of today. As such each demographic is an individual story unrepresented in our society by our current governmental infrastructure in the House of Representatives and Congress. I guess when you reach the age of retirement you begin to fall into many categories which are directly governed by our countries House of Representatives and the Congress as they pass THEIR LAWS which directly affect OUR LIVES. Therefore, I like many Americans, have lived to become only another statisti c in the economic ruin and eventual collapse of our countries monetary system. This is the Investor’s Dream – This is not the American Dream that so many of us were erroneously taught to believe was possible.
These politicians have become the worst of the worst in our country. As “We the American People” barely survive on a meager retirement fund; which is also taxed by the governments Social Security System, our Politicians attain for themselves through their elected office, the financial means to hold office, and once in office acquire for themselves a life long retirement annual income of well over $50,000. per year! I live on a retirement of $14,400. per year at $1200. per month (if I could retire) – simply not enough to survive on. How can I retire? I am the majority in America today. We the People are barely able to sustain our simple mortgages let alone our lives. Even as we struggle to survive in these oppressed times our U.S. House Representatives recently passed for themselves and their staff $9.1 million in bonuses on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that these lawmakers gave themselves? According to reporting, the average House aide got a 17% bonus. These Politicians were voted into office to represent us as we struggle with the highest unemployment rates since 1976.
Who authorized these pay raises at taxpayer expense? I surely didn’t!
As allowed by government supported Lobbyists’, the current mortgage crisis which is causing millions of Americans to loose their homes due to government sponsored “Entrapment Home Loan’s” ballooning interest rates have caused many to loose millions in investments while at the same time our government of quote, “We the People”, provides economic stimulus’s to large corporations such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac which are slated to receive $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period. In fact, these executives have already been awarded $51 million towards these bonuses while unemployment rates across our country are at 9.8 percent. Our politicians have become dictators as they dictate to the American people how much in taxes they shall pay in order to fund their salaries and special interest groups, and thus ensure their continued stay in office at Taxpayer Expense!
What about the Health Reform Act that continues to be delayed in both the House and Congress? So no health care appropriations for the “We the People” and this on the brink of the world wide Swine Flu Pandemic which was raised to a “Red Level” in April of 2009! Then I hear on the news just yesterday that there is not enough Flu Vaccine manufactured to handle a dramatic outbreak of this deadly virus. How did this happen? Who is responsible?
On April 30th, 2009, I read in the news that the worldwide pandemic level has been raised to a “Red Level” of concern due to the recent outbreak of the Swine Flu. This means that the United States had now been placed under an acute threat status for the spread of a Swine Flu pandemic outbreak. To date, there is one reported death confirmed in the state of Texas, and fourteen confirmed cases throughout California and Mexico. Let’s look at what types of provisions our government has allotted to the medical facilities in order to protect our citizens from the pandemonium of a life threatening pandemic outbreak. Three years ago, Congress appropriated billions of dollars to the department of Health and Human Services, “HHS”, for the agency’s pandemic influenza plan after animal outbreaks of the extremely pathogenic avian flu virus were discovered in a dozen countries throughout the world. Today, even though scientists say the threat of a pandemic is still very real, the nation’s interest in the issue has subsided, and the HHS says it does not have the requested resources to fully implement its strategic plan to combat and prevent a catastrophic pandemic outbreak. December, 2005, Congress appropriated $3.3 billion in emergency funding to HHS for the first year of their intervention plan and $2.3 billion for the sec ond year of funding in June, 2006. Note, those big plans have, to date, not been realized thus leading to the updated statement from HHS that quote, “The full promise for the progress HHS anticipated cannot be achieved as HHS does not have the requested resources to fully implement the plan it proposed.” This report added that the fiscal 2008 appropriations bill did not include the $870 million initially requested by the president to support the plan’s next phase. Why is this occurring?
Here is your answer as to why this is occurring. Three years ago, the GAO, Government Accountability Office, which was initiated after 9/11 as part of the changes related to the Patriot Act, developed a strategy for its work to support Congress’ decision-making and oversight related to pandemic flue planning. Their report supplanted Congresses flu pandemic planning and rather included a strategy which incorporated reviews of other national disasters such as the 9/11 terror attacks, hurricanes Katrina and Andrew, and emerging infectious diseases such as the severe acute respiratory syndrome. Their strategy targeted six themes which were, performance and accountability, leadership, authority and coordination, detecting threats and managing risks; information sharing, and communication, capacity to respond and recover, and planning, training and exercise. Basically, since 2006, when HHS’s budget was taken over by GAO, 11 reports were published which made 23 recommendations based on its findings.
Then to summarize, control of the funds allocated to HHS had been transferred to a “new governmental office.” This office, the ASPR, is the office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness Response. Because the funding was now, “broad based,” to include various possible risk factors as stated above, little of the initial $7.1 billion in emergency funding specifically proposed for pandemic influenza preparedness by George W. Bush in 2005 actually reached the individual hospital facilities. Instead the ASPR has allocated to the nation’s states and territories these funds which are supposed to be used to apply to all of the hazards that were reviewed initially by the GAO according to Gregg Pane, an emergency physician who is the director of national healthcare preparedness programs at ASPR.
Pane stated that planning efforts should be shared in a community with emphases on the local medical institutional needs. This would better target specific areas according to their area of need. It appears that the funding priorities of these federally funded departments are too federally focused. Way too much of the money that is allocated from your tax dollars and mine goes to propping up large, federal bureaucracies like the C.D.C., Center for Disease Control, rather than providing the national health care support that our tax dollars are crying out for as we continue to live under the world wide pandemic threat of both the Swine and Avian Flues. This is the tax dollars of the American People! This is the money that your elected Politicians were supposed to use to provide for your tranquility as per our Declaration of Independence. Am I, as an American feeling tranquil? As long as our current Politicians and their corrupted deviant political practices continue to impose their alterations and mutilations of the guidelines set forth by our Founding Fathers’ as outlined in our Declaration of Independence and its Constitution of the United States of America, I will have no tranquility! Here is an excerpt from the Declaration of Independence:
For the People of the United States of America, the Declaration of Independence
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
The history of this current United States governmental framework has become; as was the case of the Tyranny of the King of Great Britain over the Americas, a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all leading to the direct collapse of our economic establishment and the insurance of the health, stability, and well being of the American People.
“I no longer believe that we as Americans are supporting a quote, “Government of the People, By the People, and For the People.” We are now a government “Of the Politician, By the Politician, and for The Politician!” As such I cry out for change!”
So now Mr. Hamilton, with all this in mind, how can I be a person of hope? How can “We the American People” really have hope in today’s flawed and incomplete Governmental Structure? Mr. Hamilton, you and the platform of the Twelve Visions Party are the hope for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness for all American people in this day.
As we watch our crumbling economic structure deplete the hopes and dreams of the American people; I strongly believe that our society and our future generations depend on a new State of The Union Amendment to our current U.S. Constitution which removes the threat of forced taxation as a retaliation measure against the economic infrastructure of the American People. The purpose of our government formation through the Constitution was to (ENSURE THE RIGHTS OF LIBERTY AND PROSPERITY TO ITS PEOPLE AND THEIR ESTABLISHMENT).
Here is what I believe, unless we Americans become the unilateral voice of change to our current political system, and take back our country from the hands of career-politicians, America will collapse as the clay and iron feet of the false Idol prophesied in the Book of Revelations, and spoken about by Jesus – a truly conscious thinker in our world. The Twelve Visions Party is the hope and life line of change for the future of all American people.
I am fully convinced, claiming a quote from yourself Mark Hamilton that,
“…The time has come to replace our career-politician lawmakers—that is, those who throw food to swarms of lawyers in order to gain political power. We must replace them with those truly qualified to lead America’s economy—that is, those who build the economy: our entrepreneurs and successful businessmen who really care about the health of our economy. Only they bring us jobs. And only those business leaders can lead us through the storms of international competition. Only they can build the economy to rapidly rising prosperity…our sinking economy demands that we replace our current lawmakers with those who build the economy, not drain the economy.”
