A few weeks ago, in my city, Moriarty, New Mexico, Representative Martin Heinrich (D), with help from the staff of Senators Udall (D) and Bingaman (D), held a Jobs Workshop, in which he explained to local businessmen how to apply for and receive federal stimulus money.
How thoughtful. We borrowed all this money and the people of your town must repay it, and here it is. Let us help you to get your share.
What hurting business in this recession would not consider federal money welcome news?
Thus, the Democrats use the money, “The People’s Money”, to show their kind and caring hearts and to ease the way to their own reelection. On top of his Workshop, Martin Heinrich (D) has raised over $1 million in campaign money, while his challenger, Jon Barela (R) has raised over $200,000. And now that the Jobs Bill is passing, incumbent Heinrich will have access to more federal money with which he can bribe more New Mexicans to vote for him.
It is not that we begrudge the money to the businesses. We want all New Mexican businesses to thrive, as we want all Americans to thrive. But on borrowed money that we the people must repay? Money that Democrats unabashedly use to promote their own seats of power? Bribery is used openly in Congress (the Louisiana Purchase II, the Cornhusker Kickback) and do we really think this is any different?
So this is what lies before the Tea Partiers and other concerned Americans. Those in power will use the money borrowed to cement their own seats of power. Already with this power, they plan to further burden the people by taking over 1/6 the economy as they vote to make themselves the managers of our healthcare, as they have become managers of our banks, and managers of auto companies.
We The People must say no. We MUST remove the offenders from office. We have to get up off our couches, out of our houses, into the streets, and we must rally neighbors, friends, community, churches, to stop the corrupt and self-serving Congress that is now in place. We must elect better. We must do all we can, for the love of our children, for the love of America, who is being pushed to the brink of financial collapse through the reckless borrowing and spending of Congress, and we must do all we can to end this national nightmare. So help us God.
