American citizenship or being a citizen of Heaven

If you had a choice between being an American citizen or being a citizen of Heaven, which would you choose? For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Philippians 3:20 I am choosing being a citizen of Heaven since Obama and his team is taking America straight to world citizenship, and then straight to hell. Citizen of Heaven = Thumbs up Citizen of America ...more »

Tax inert wealth

We know that trickle-down economics doesn't work. The truth is that the more money you put in the hands of the middle & lower classes, the more money you are circulating through your economy. People that are salaried at the mean & below spend the majority of the money they make, which in turn improves the economy, and essentially trickles up into the coffers of corporations and eventually, those with the largest investment ...more »

Campaign: Making Data More Accessible

Build a fiber optic cable from Eureka, California to The Dalles, Oregon.

Currently there is one fiber optic cable connecting Eureka to the Internet. When that is accidentally cut, business stops. No credit or debit card sales, no automatic inventory re-ordering. The cable fails about once a year. If we connected to the data centers in The Dalles we could continue to be in business. The telecom companies have already designed the system but are waiting for a "big player" to sign on to finance ...more »

The Tree of Obama

"You will know a tree by it's fruit." Matthew 7:16 The Obama Tree is a black Oak. The leaves protect the tree from the light of truth. The bark is hard and callus to prevent transparency. The fruit is the ACORN, to reproduce itself again and again. The roots of deception go deep into the American soil.

Stop trying to pass excessive agendas such as health care and cap and trade during economic hardships

Every poll I have ever seen has health care as the very last (about 2% usually) in importance to the American people. I can honestly say I do not want to pay for an illegal alien to go to the emergency room 10 times a week (know for a fact from working in the healthcare field). Also, there are millions of people who do not believe in global warming and scientific data has backed them up on this. For this reason alone ...more »

Making the economy sustainable with little government intervention

When interest on money is charged, money in the future is worth less than money now. This has a major impact on investment choices. Interest promotes investments that are unsustainable and wasteful. If no interest was charged, sustainable investments would be more attractive. For example: you want to build a house and you have the choice between a house of €100,000 with a yearly energy cost of €5,000 or a house of ...more »

Reduce Legislative Staff

We elect officials to represent us. We pay them a pretty good salary, plus an expense acount. They are paid for travel and have their own heath care and retirement plans. If that is not enough, they also have multiple offices and hire lots of staff. In other words, just having all of these elected officials cost each and every one of us a pretty penny. When the economy slows, they always scare us with laying off ...more »
