Below is the article about 545. Many of you have read it and are aware of it. It was written by Charlie Reese and it sums up the entire problem in Washington DC. It is not a Republican, Democrat, or Independent problem, it is a whole sale Federal Government problem. Read the article and pass it on. It has been publish three different times by Charlie Reese over the past several decades. I believe now it just might resonate with all of the voting constituents across America. It is time to hold all who are in Washington accountable for the heinous deeds over the past 50 years. It is time for all of them to go.

If anyone can read this information and then not vote them out, then they have a loose screw floating around upstairs. We can not trust any of them. They need to know that we do not trust any of them. And they need to know that we are going to continually watch them moving forward. And if they do not serve us we will throw them out.

Our goal is to replace all 545 members of our federal government, oh that would be 546 with the Vice President.

Here is the article, read it, learn from it, and act on it:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Politicians, as I have often said, are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Everything on the Republican contract is a problem created by Congress. Too much bureaucracy? Blame Congress. Too many rules?

Blame Congress. Unjust tax laws? Congress wrote them.

Out-of-control bureaucracy? Congress authorizes everything bureaucracies do. Americans dying in Third World rat holes on stupid U.N. missions? Congress allows it. The annual deficits?

Congress votes for them. The $4 trillion plus debt? Congress created it.

To put it into perspective just remember that 100 percent of the power of the federal government comes from the U.S. Constitution. If it's not in the Constitution, it's not authorized.

Then read your Constitution. All 100 percent of the power of the federal government is invested solely in 545 individual human beings. That's all. Of 260 million Americans, only 545 of them wield 100 percent of the power of the federal government.

That's 435 members of the U.S. House, 100 senators, one President and nine Supreme Court justices. Anything involving government that is wrong is 100 percent their fault.

I exclude the vice president because constitutionally he has no power except to preside over the Senate and to vote only in the case of a tie. I exclude the Federal Reserve because Congress created it and all its power is power Congress delegated to it and could withdraw anytime it chooses to do so. In fact, all the power exercised by the 3 million or so other federal employees is power delegated from the 545.

All bureaucracies are created by Congress or by executive order of the president. All are financed and staffed by Congress. All enforce laws passed by Congress.

All operate under procedures authorized by Congress. That's why all complaints and protests should be properly directed at Congress, not at the individual agencies.

You don't like the IRS? Go see Congress. You think the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agency is running amok? Go see Congress.

Congress is the originator of all government problems and is also the only remedy available. That's why, of course, politicians go to such extraordinary lengths and employ world-class sophistry to make you think they are not responsible.

Anytime a congressman pretends to be outraged by something a federal bureaucrat does, he is in fact engaging in one big massive con job. No federal employee can act at all except to enforce laws passed by Congress and to employ procedures authorized by Congress either explicitly or implicitly.

Partisans on both sides like to blame presidents for deficits, but all deficits are congressional deficits. The president may, by custom, recommend a budget, but it carries no legal weight. Only Congress is authorized by the Constitution to authorize and appropriate and to levy taxes. That's what the federal budget consists of: expenditures authorized, funds appropriated and taxes levied.

Both Democrats and Republicans mislead the public. For 40 years Democrats had majorities and could have at any time balanced the budget if they had chosen to do so. Republicans have had majorities and could have, if they chose, passed a balanced budget. Every president, Democrat or Republican, could have vetoed appropriations bills that did not make up a balanced budget. Every president could have recommended a balanced budget. None has done either.

We have annual deficits and a huge federal debt because that's what majorities in Congress and presidents in the White House wanted. We have troops in various Third World rat holes because Congress and the president want them there.

Don't be conned. Don't let them escape responsibility. We simply have to sort through 260 million people until we find 545 who will act responsibly.

Journalist Charley Reese (now retired) was part of the Orlando Sentinels staff for three decades from 1971 to 2001, during which time he (among other duties) penned a thrice-weekly column which was distributed to other newspapers nationwide by
King Features Syndicate.

During the 1980s Reese wrote the first version of an editorial opining that 545 people (i.e., the President of the United States, plus all the members of Congress and the Supreme Court) "are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country," and he has amended, updated, and republished that piece several times since then.

The version cited above is taken from the 7 March 1995 edition of the Orlando Sentinel, where it ran under the title "Looking for Someone to Blame? Congress Is a Good Place to Start."

As you can see. There is clearly a point of intersection between Washington DC and all of our government problems. If we change out who is running the show we can get real change, the change we want, not Obamacare and socialism.
However, we will have to wait out the supreme court justices as they are locked in until they retire. In the future we need supreme justices that will rule based upon the written constitution and not of their own legislation.

But for now pass this information around and get your friends, neighbors, and relatives to clearly understand where the power lies. Currently it is in the 545 that are in Washington. In November 2010 it once again lies with the people, on that Day we the people have the ultimate power for one day and one day only!!! If we do not use this power we will lose it. It is that simple.
