Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

The House, The Senate, Obama, and the Need for Independents

The “Payroll Tax Cut” is set to expire on January 1.  President Obama wanted to extend the tax cut for another year.  The Senate passed an extension for two months.  The House passed it for a year.  Since the House and Senate passed different versions of the bill, they were supposed to have members of both chambers meet and hammer out the difference.  The problem is the Senate has adjourned for the holidays and will not return until after the New Year.  The President now wants the House to pass the Senate version, but the House refuses to vote on it.

President Obama is a Democrat and the Senate has a Democratic Party majority, but the Republican Party has a majority in the House.  This bill is being labeled as a “Jobs Bill” (though I don’t know if this is supposed to generate jobs or is a tribute to Steve Jobs.)  The problem is that recently, both Democrats and Republicans have titled bills that have nothing to do with the laws they want to pass.  This practice has to end and the only way it can end is by voting for Independents like myself.

Since people don’t want to be mislead (I could be wrong here based on the politicians people vote for and re-elect), they should vote for people who won’t mislead.  Republicans and Democrats mislead.  They have mislead and switched positions with each other time and time again.

Obama and Democrats were elected in large part to bring a quick end to the Iraq War.  Not only did that war not end quickly and we’re still fighting in Afghanistan, but he managed to send troops to Libya.  Republicans, who were against withdrawing from Iraq, questioned why we were bringing troops to Libya.  Once Gadaffi was removed, Republicans were complaining that we were leaving Libya too early and we needed more troops there.

Instead of voting for the two parties, vote for independents.  They don’t have an ever-changing party platform to cling to.  All we Independents have is our word, and if we go against our word, we won’t be re-elected as we don’t have party pundits to spin our actions or our words.

2011 and the House of Representatives

This week I will be taking a look at what will be happening to Washington in 2011.  I will be looking at the House, the Senate, the White House, the Supreme Court, and Federal agencies.  Today I will look at the House.

Americans spoke in 2010 and Americans said they like tea parties in their House.  A tea party is better than a party with no beverages at all.  There is no truth in the rumor (at least as far as I know) that the tea in these tea parties are Long Island Iced Tea, but Long Island Iced Tea parties are cool.

Unlike the Senate and the White House, the House of Representatives will have a Republican majority.  It will be interesting to show many of the bills that the House passes will also pass the Senate (and vice versa.)  It will also be interesting to see how President Obama will pass a bill that is more Republican than Democratic in nature.

My advice for the House (and the Senate) would be to pass my platform.  It is neither Republican nor Democratic in nature.  It has things that both parties can relate with as well as things neither party has tried.  My platform can be a foundation of a bipartisan effort to get things and make America great again.

I predict that the House will try to pass a lot of Republicanized bills only to die in the Democraticized Senate.  They will not consult me or my platform for anything and that 2011 will be a lot like 2010.

Call or Write the South Carolina Legislature!

It has come to my attention that South Carolina does not count write-in votes for President.  This is eight electoral votes I will not be able to get if the law is still in effect in 2012.  This also violates free speech rights as people are limited to those on the ballot, even if they are not the best candidates.
