Our Position On National Debt & Fiscal Responsibility

Our National Security and economy is directly dependent on our country's fiscal responsibility and solvency.  Governments reckless borrowing and spending with total disregard to the accumulation of debt or its repayment irrefutably threatens not only the stability of our country in the worlds financial markets but every industry, business sector, man, woman and child in this country for generations to come.

In this time of economic and financial crisis, we must be better stewards of this economy and our governments spending and financial stability more than ever before. That is why our first order of business will be to introduce a Balanced Budget Amendment to our Constitution. After all, if you have to live within a budget then you should expect nothing less from your government. Adopting a balanced Budget policy and Amendment will insure fiscal responsibility, so that we do not mortgage our children's future on a mountain of debt. We will begin to immediately pay down the over $15 Trillion Dollar National debt. We will restore fairness and responsibility to our tax code. We will bring balance back to the housing markets, so that people do not have to lose their homes. And we will encourage personal savings free of further taxes, so that our economy remains strong and Americans can live well in their retirements.

We must next reform our tax code. It's thousands of pages long, a monstrosity that high-priced lobbyists and former legislators have rigged with page after page of special interest loopholes, tax shelters and hidden taxation, penalties & fines. We will reform the tax code by lowering the overall tax rates and shifting to one of either a National Sales Tax, flat tax and/or graduated flat tax on business and individuals. In doing so we will eliminate the corporate loopholes and tax havens, save hundreds of millions of dollars in government tax administration costs while putting more money back where it belongs, in the hands of the States, small business, workers and their families. We'll eliminate federal income taxes for millions of retirees, because all seniors deserve to live out their lives with dignity and respect. While we reform our tax code we offer additional tax cuts for middle-class families.

We will ensure that the foreclosure prevention program enacted by Congress is implemented quickly and effectively so that at-risk homeowners can get help and hopefully stay in their homes. We will work to reform bankruptcy laws to restore balance between lender and homeowner rights. We will institute new lending standards and regulations to ensure that loans are affordable and fair, that a national maximum interest usury rate is established, provide adequate remedies to make sure the standards are met, and ensure that borrowers and homeowners have accurate and complete information about their credit loans and mortgage options. We will support affordable rental housing, which is now more critical than ever.

Obama & Clinton Turning Over America’s Sovereignty to United Nations

Michael Simone : March 29, 2012

Please take the time to read this article from Dick Morris posted on The Hill. Should the plans of the Obama administration come to fruition, America's Sovereignty will be turned over to the United Nations leaving American citizens as subjects of a Global Ruling Body. These actions by Obama are extremely illegal and highly  unconstitutional if not high treason!

Dear Mr. President, Where’s The Beef?

Michael Simone : September 09, 2011

If you listened to President Obama's "Jobs Speech" last night then more than likely you were thinking the same thing as me, Mr. President, WHERE'S THE BEEF!

Once again, Obama's speech was nothing more than pure, old time, campaign rhetoric about a job plan bill we should all vote for without any substance or idea of how the plan will work, be funded or just who will actually be paying for it.  Obama and his advisors are making the huge mistake of trying to fix a 2011 economic problem with a 1930 economic solution that history proved didn't…

Warren Buffett on solving the Country’s Budget Problems

Don Torgersen : August 17, 2011

Midwestern tycoon Warren Buffett, pictured here adorably eating a parfait, presented his quick and easy solution to America’s debt problem today on CNBC:

“I could end the deficit in five minutes.

 You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than three percent of GDP all sitting members of congress are ineligible for reelection.

Finally He makes some sense!!!

Warren, while you're interested in helping the Country why don't you put your money where your mouth is and…

Gang of Six Plan must not Pass

Michael Simone : July 20, 2011

The Gang of Six plan is nothing more than a destructive compromise between both parties in order to justify to their constituents that, they understood the problem and were able to reach an equitable permanent solution to government spending abuse.

Nothing in this plan could be further from the truth. These idiots haven't a clue on how to cut spending let alone balance a budget. They are negotiating a debt increase to pay their reckless government spending and unwarranted debt with the security bond markets(additional government borrowing)  while obligating us to pay it back. NOT THEM BUT US! 

Obama Budget Plan is pure Smoke & Mirrors

Michael Simone : April 14, 2011

When will the American people catch on that this President is a complete and absolute fraud. Obviously, He severely lacks the substance, knowledge or experience to run our country, the economy or our foreign policy making him the most dangerous and destructive person at the helm of this country.

Yesterday, this inexperienced man child of a President went before the country with a so-called budget plan to reduce our $14 Trillion plus National debt by a meager $4 Trillion while taking 12 years in which to do so. The only problem with his plan is that its filled…

Who Won the Shutdown Showdown? It Wasn’t Even Close

ARParty : April 09, 2011

While Republicans wanted to cut more spending in Saturday's early morning compromise to keep the government open, they think they got the better of the deal.

Here's why: HR1 was originally to seek spending cuts of $32 billion until Tea Party conservatives insisted on more than $ 60 billion. House Speaker John Boehner won more cuts than he originally sought and got the Senate to agree to votes to defund the health care reform law and groups like the nation's largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood - once votes Senate Majority leader Harry Reid said…

Obama Refuses to be a Leader on the important issues

Michael Simone : March 16, 2011

I've had it with both party's in Washington and our destructive, simple minded, man-child for a President Obama.

It's time the American people give them all a loud and clear directive in which to follow before they further destroy this country. That directive is "WE WANT A STRAIGHT FORWARD BUDGET WITH A 25% ACROSS THE BOARD SPENDING CUT & WE WANT IT NOW

I don't care how they do it but do it now, today before it gets any worse. But cut it straight across the board on all government spending. This is the only fair and…

545 Individuals Solely Responsible for our Country’s Crises

Michael Simone : March 09, 2011

Have you ever wondered, if both Democrats and Republicans are against deficits, why do we have a $13 trillion deficit? If all the politicians are against inflation, why do we have inflation? Or, If all the politicians are against higher taxation then, why do we have ever increasing high taxes?

  • You and I don't propose a federal budget.  The president does
  • You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations.  The House of Representatives does.
  • You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
  • You and I don't set fiscal…

Time has come to Overthrow Government

ARParty : March 26, 2010

Our safety and our liberty depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who would pervert the Constitution.” ~ President Abraham Lincoln

President Lincoln clearly understood the purpose and meaning of our Constitution. Our constitution is the very underpinnings of our culture, way of life and the embodiment of our unalienable rights to Life, liberty and the pursuit of Property and Happiness.

Hijacking Your Faith:  THE OBAMA WAY

ARParty : March 25, 2010

By Sharon Sebastian – Website: http:// darwinsracist.com

As with most hijackings, the targets don’t know about it until it is happening or already occurred. As with every hijacking, it is about control. This time it is about controlling the word of God as preached in churches across the land. Behind it, is the force and support of the Whitehouse. Note the man reported to be President Barack Obama’s newest spiritual advisor, a man with reported sentiments not unlike Jeremiah Wright’s, but without the raw public image. Yet, Obama’s new front man on religion, Rev. Jim Wallis, is creating…

Obama’s failed economic policies leading to further Job loss & protracted recession

ARParty : March 17, 2010

Recently, President Barack Obama declared that his government "will spend our way out of the recession," which is another way of saying that the government will find clever ways to put money into the hands of people who have produced nothing or very little for it and then encourage them to spend, spend, spend.

Paul Krugman of the New York Times recently declared that our real economics problem is this: "What's limiting employment now is lack of demand for the things workers produce." Not surprisingly, this issue has been thrown about in socialist literature for more than…

    Join the Convention Of States
    Reign In the Federal Government


    Simple: to bring power back to the states and the people, where it belongs. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. shouldn’t be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. But right now, they do. So it all boils down to one question: Who do you think should decide what’s best for you and your family? You, or the feds? We’d vote for the American people every single time.
