The Honorable Kay Bailey Hutchison
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510
Dear Senator Hutchison,
Like you, I am a native Texan from pioneer stock. This otherwise open letter is addressed to you because you are my senior senator, you are running for governor, and I liked you when we met while boarding the AAL flight which took us to Washington after your election sixteen years ago. I might add that those I know who know you personally speak well of you. I am writing to you because of my deep concern for the constitutional government, economy and culture of America, and because you have one of the one hundred most powerful elected voices in a nation of over three hundred million. I am concerned because, like you, I was raised when history, critical thinking, English, math, science, and the founding documents were still taught in public schools, and universities had not been taken over by Marxists. I am concerned when the dumbing down of schools and the planned cutting of life extension Medicare to the last well educated generations is apparently deliberate. I am concerned that the Federal Reserve has "loaned" two trillion dollars to some entity and told congress it is none of their business. Where is your voice in this criminal outrage? Are you a co sponsor on the bill to audit the Fed? If not, why not? I am concerned that eco fanatics have arbitrarily and insanely declared cattle as major polluters, and identified hundreds of trumped up "endangered species". This is a classic totalitarian platform by which a bureaucrat could one day walk onto our Texas Heritage Ranch and put us out of business. I am concerned when the Obama administration describes conservative patriotic Americans as potential terrorists, while refusing to close the borders or acknowledge the real terrorists. Those who disagree with him he called "teabag extremists", and then he spent millions to bring in HAMAS refugees from Israel with full taxpayer support and welfare. Where is your voice in all of this? I am concerned that almost every time president Obama, senate leader Reid, or house speaker Pelosi speak, they either lie or distort the truth. I am concerned when the CEO of GE, the second largest company in the world, is a close financial advisor to the president, who in turn gives billions of taxpayer dollars to GE and receives around the clock promotional propaganda from GE owned NBC. This will not change under Comcast. Political/business arrangements like this were once associated with "fascism" in Italy. In Germany it was called "national socialism" (nazi). Besides "business as usual" what is it called today in Washington? Where is your voice? I am concerned when you express a fondness and affection for Washington D.C.. I can tell you with confidence that growing millions of citizens increasingly regard Washington as a fountainhead of corruption, lies, bribes, and moral cowardice.
Our President, Barack Obama, said that he should be judged by the people surrounding him. Well, the evidence is in. He has appointed and is surrounded by self proclaimed socialists, Marxists, communists, and Maoists. (My apologies to any proud self proclaimed Trotskyites I may be unaware of). These people are not liberals, and even the term "progressives" is a cover up for what amounts to a Marxist takeover of the government. As further evidence, these people are doing what you would expect from a Marxist coup. They are methodically dismantling our economy and speaking and acting like dictators while appointing unconstitutional czars, bypassing congress, and totally ignoring the constitution. They are obviously on a deliberate course to destroy the nation before the next election. Senate Republicans aid and abet this process by debating individual points on the so called Health Care Reform bill which for starters is unconstitutional, illegal, and criminal. It will destroy health care, (except for you elite who have exempted yourselves), tax us into oblivion, and violate about 5 of the first 10 amendments in the Bill of Rights. Ask any constitutional lawyer. But then you and Sen. Cornyn are lawyers. The majority of Americans know about this bill. They do not want it amended; they want it killed. Where is your voice? In your Texas campaign for Governor, you say that you are a conservative fighting liberals in Washington and you will do everything you can to prevent government takeover of health care. Not to put too fine a point on it, but if you really think you are opposing liberals rather than Marxists and statists, you may be going to a gunfight with a stick. In spite of the fact that you and Sen. Cornyn have voted against the constitution and the will of your constituents in the past (TARP and Hate Crimes) it is not too late to stand up for the constitution . As a veteran and a Texan I would love to cheer you on in a successful drive to save America and Texas.
One of the reasons the Texas Farm Bureau AGFUND has endorsed you for governor is because Rick Perry sneaked off to a Bilderberg meeting of foreign internationalists, came home and spent the next couple of years trying to pave the way to confiscate Texas farms and ranches in order to build the NAFTA Highway. Furthermore, Spain would benefit by controlling this economy ruining, sovereignty ending monster. I am convinced that if you run on a platform to stop the NAFTA highway and the collaboration with foreign entities under any of the stealth names, and if you pledge to keep taxes low, AND if you commit to producing Article 10 resolutions for Texas which put the federal government on notice that we will not acknowledge or accept any blatantly unconstitutional "laws" coming out of Washington, then you WILL be the next Texas Governor. You might also include your intent to put an honest curriculum back in the public schools, not just an improved math program. If you cannot do these things, we will have Governor Perry for another four years.
On the other hand, Senator Hutchison, I believe you could possibly become the first female U.S. President, because there ARE things you could do which might save the nation. Too often, our candidates run in Texas as conservatives, then go to Washington and operate as loyal national republicans. After betraying the people's trust by performing like liberal democrats for the past few years, our republicans then put up John (campaign finance reform/amnesty) McCain as the candidate, resulting in a Marxist democrat takeover with a SUPER majority. Why don't you lead the way? Rally other "conservatives." ( Dick Cheney says you are a true conservative). Stop dignifying the fascist takeover instrument called "Health Care Reform" and call it what it is. Demand an end to this unconstitutional travesty. KILL IT. You have the majority of the American people and the LAW on your side. Go public with whatever constitutional conservatives you have. If you need more leverage than just speaking the truth, then remind the administration that the president's eligibility for office was never vetted. He has not even demonstrated that he is an American citizen, much less a natural born one. This is absolutely the fault of The Republican Party. Why has he spent $1.5 million to keep his birth certificate secret? Tell Obama the republicans are prepared to stand on the capitol steps and wave their birth certificates. Invite him to your "birthday" party and tell him to either go public or resign. DO YOU GUYS REALLY THINK YOU HAVE NO LEVERAGE? You may recall that Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, a freshman senator, asked about vetting Obama for eligibility at the appropriate time. Vice president Cheney took no action. Where was your voice? I also read that Mr. Cheney said the reason why we are in Iraq and Afghanistan is oil. He has endorsed you for governor, so I am sure you can check these statements for accuracy. On the subject of oil: It is now no secret that America is sitting on the greatest oil reserves in the world. Just recently there were multiple articles about the vast Midwest shale oil reserves which we have the technology to tap. This alone makes us energy independent, and the Alaskan reserves at Prudhoe Bay make us the oil richest nation in history. Ask any oil executive who is not on the Washington payroll. Meanwhile we live on the edge by playing like we are dependent on arabs for oil. So, people lie on TV daily about the need for GE to build inefficient taxpayer funded windmills because America is out of oil. (Oh, so that's the connection). This brings us back to the Obama Agenda. In addition to the Health Bill, and Amnesty, there is Cap and Trade. Any of these three will destroy America as we know it. The latter has now been fully exposed as an international plan, based on fraudulent climate premises, to tax America into third world status leading to a loss of sovereignty . Ironically, Senator Hutchison, you and I are old enough to remember that the term "conspiracy theorist" was coined to label those who first said there was an international plan to form a one world economy and government at the expense of national sovereignty and our constitutional government. However premature, this is a stated goal of those behind the Copenhagen conference, and last year British Prime Minister Brown made an address at Harvard in which he stated that world government is mandatory and independent sovereign nation states must go. 'Wonder why that did not get more publicity. Maybe if he had been arrested by a local policeman…. Just recently on CNBC an expert was asked for his prognosis on the weakening dollar. His reply was that the dollar would weaken and fail, leading to a world financial collapse, a one world economy, one world government, and a new world order. Since I only read about this exchange, I do not know if the CNBC interviewer called him a "conspiracy theorist".
Senator, if you could lead conservatives to kill the Health Bill, kill Cap and Trade, and stop Amnesty, you will have saved America for the time being. These are not just bad bills. They will bring an end to a free and prosperous America, which is exactly what is intended, and they are TOTALLY illegal. Furthermore, a MAJORITY of viable Americans know this, and the numbers are growing; hence the rush to FORCE this upon us. We have fought wars and lost hundreds of thousands of young combatants for LESS than this. This is the most dangerous thing and the most dangerous time in this nation's history, and you are on the cutting edge. I would love to have your opportunity, but I do not envy you. I cannot claim to understand the depth of poisonous treachery and corruption that surrounds you in power mad Washington. On the other hand, I suspect that you are just insulated enough that you are unaware of the degree to which fear and righteous indignation are fueling an intense and seething anger among taxpaying workers and the jobless toward government. The anger grows as they watch their lives and their futures being destroyed by despicable, lying, elitist , corrupt and condescending politicians in Washington, who are assisted by a prostituted media . By numbers and intensity, this is growing like a Texas thunderhead. This is why I am certain that In spite of the democrat majority, if enough republicans join and publicly expose this agenda and rebel against these outrageous bills, the democrats will not be able to pull this off. Time is on your side if you STALL. Next year democrats will begin defecting in spite of the promise of taxpayer money and ACORN election rigging. ALL of you swore an oath to uphold the constitution, and NOTHING of significance being proposed by this administration is constitutional. You share the liability. Kill these bills and fulfill your sworn oath of office. Fail, and you will see the destruction of America happen on your watch. That will be your legacy. You can always come home, and to the extent your wealth and connections will allow, struggle with the rest of us under the chaos being wrought by corrupt Washington politicians. You have a rare opportunity to become a heroine or to go with the flow and fail both America and Texas .
CC Sen. John Cornyn
In fact, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just announced the Obama Administration would be working hand in glove with the UN to pass a new "Small Arms Treaty."

Next, the US should embrace international free trade. What we need to do is completely revamp the tax code. I recommend the FairTax. Brazil is looking into the FairTax and we should be afraid. I will have a blog explaining this interesting tax reform idea in detail. What it is in the most basic form is the repealing of Income, Corporate, Payroll, Medicaid, Medicare, and Capital Gains taxes and rolling it into one 23% consumption tax. While 23% seems high, keep in mind that we as consumers pay all of these taxes at the checkout counter already. Economists have calculated that the final price for goods are inflated 22% because companies have to add the taxes down the line anyways. Every time corporations and smaller businesses are further taxed, all they do is roll the cost down to the consumer. Add that 22% embedded tax plus the income taxes, payroll taxes, Medicare, Medicaid taxes and you see that you are being bled. Due to our wild tax system that NO ONE understands not even the IRS itself, corporations move their operations out of the U.S. It isn't as much to do with cheaper labor but our laborious tax structure. We have the second highest corporate tax rate. We have high personal income taxes. We have a 6.5% payroll tax which is matched by the employer which must be paid to the Federal government, that's a 13% tax. As you can see, the tax structure is a burden on rich, poor, and average American people and corporations. With a simple one time 23% consumption tax, which would stimulate investing since that would never be taxed (Capital Gains) until you went to buy something. This is a simple overview, but keep this in mind, 50 corporate leaders were asked if the U.S. Adopted the FairTax, would they move their corporate offices to the U.S.? Their answer? 48 of the 50 said they would absolutely move to the U.S. The other two? They said they would "strongly consider" it. The FairTax was not created by politicians. It was created by economists who wished to create a powerful taxing machine that would lower the tax burden on ALL people, and end the political earmarking done in the current code.
With companies moving back to the U.S. And new businesses moving in, America could be a powerhouse in trade again. We also need to promote solar, wind, water, and other alternative fuels NOT with federal subsidies, but instead staying out of the way. Government regulations need to loosen for new industries. By adding regulations we discourage or downright trample on small entrepreneurs who wish to enter the industry. Heavy taxation and high costs to comply with federal and state regulations not only hurt small entrepreneurs, but is welcomed by bigger businesses who understand that these impediments ensure that only large ventures could even hope to enter the industry, i.e. less competition.
In conclusion, I argue that we should not only embrace a world stage to sell goods, but also become a major player who competes directly with all other nations. With a FairTax, return to strong free market principles, and even including trade unions which help to engender good will with our neighbors without exploiting ourselves to their benefit are the steps we should take to build a positive flow of capital from around the world to America, create jobs in America, strengthen our current businesses, and promote small business development.
We can be American in an international world. In fact, giving up our values would hinder our progress. America became a great power through trade. We believed in free trade. Let's not lose those principles. We should embrace them and revitalize our economy and put it on a solid footing.
