Pledge of Independence- no votes for Dems or GOP

with 4 comments

from the People’s Email Network:

Pledge of Independence Action Page:

Friends, our premise from the beginning has been that we must first speak out for policy change to our elected officials. For unless we are in fact speaking out, only then can we know if they will listen to us or not. AFTER we do that, it becomes clear who is listening and who is not, and THEN we have the base to hold them to account accordingly, and to remove from office those who will not listen.

We have now arrived at the latter point with regard to each and every sitting member of Congress of both major parties without exception, and the fake Independents can go too.

We are calling for all citizens of the United to declare that under no circumstance will they vote for any candidate associated with either the Democratic or Republican parties, and that we instead dedicate our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor, to electing worthy independents who can demonstrate a lifetime of public policy advocacy on behalf of the people, true citizen legislators.

In support of this initiative, besides asking you to submit the action page above, we have set up a Facebook page which will expand into a national organizing network, with pages for each individual district in the country. For those of you who have resisted participating in Facebook up to this point, we will do our best to find alternate ways to help you connect with this, but it really is time to get with it on this page here.

When you visit the Facebook page above, please become a fan. Then post something on the wall, click on the Voices tab to submit the Pledge of Independence action page that way, start and/or add to a discussion. In short, we need to start congregating, talking to each other, and organizing.

Because where we are now at is this:

For their part the Democratic Party tied its wagon to a fundamentally corrupt health care bill, based on a secret deal made long ago by President Obama personally to kill off any prospect of a public option of any kind. So cynical was the deception in which Democratic members of Congress also conspired that while 51 Senators stated they supported a public option of some kind, after being forced into the procedure of reconciliation (which would only require 51 votes) the Speaker of the House further conspired to suppress even the very weak public option passed in her own chamber, so that those Senators would never have to honor their pledges.

Let us be clear. There would not have even been that 51 on the record had they not been gaming the fact that they thought 60 would be necessary.

Likewise, while more than 60 members of the House pledged unequivocally in August that no bill would pass by them without a “strong” public option, all but two waved through a House bill that was anything but, including a draconian new restriction on a woman’s right to choose for good measure of insult. And the last one standing, Dennis Kucinich, failed in the end to honor even his pledge. He is returning, by the way, all contributions based on this in case you are interested about that.

From all this one truth in inescapably evident. There is not a single Democratic member of Congress who is willing to take responsibility for being the deciding vote on ANY matter of progressive principle.

Not one. Not a single one. Not now, not tomorrow, not next week or month or year, until the end of time.

If they could not pass a meaningful public option NOW, with 51 declared votes in the U.S. Senate, and only that many needed, it will never, ever, ever happen. All this talk about “we’ll get to work the very next day on improving the bill” is nothing but knowing and willful LIES. Never again will the Democratic party have such compelling margins in both houses of Congress. It is not that they couldn’t get it done. In truth, they were never even the slightest bit interested in getting it done, only in lulling us into thinking they would.

The entire last presidential campaign was nothing but a slick corporate con job, which is why we have ended up with a slick corporate health bill, and the slick corporate graphics and the slick corporate slogans are all we are going to get until we DEMAND something different.

For the last couple election cycles, the Democratic “leadership” has been pitching that if we would just elect more Democrats, then they could finally get something done for the American people. What is transparently clear now is that if they only needed ZERO votes to pass a public option, they could not even come up with those. Whatever the required number, they would find some way to fall short in the end.

So what we are left with is a bill that is so despicable at its bottom line, forcing all of us to buy corporate insurance under penalty of the IRS, with no meaningful option that might actually save us any money, that they are trying to find a way to sneak it through so that nobody is actually on record voting for it. That is how utterly ashamed they themselves are of what they are doing.

And by the way, the blue doggy Democrats who ARE voting against it are against it not because it does too little for the people, but because it does too MUCH!!

Which brings us to the Republicans, who have gleefully done everything they could in the last year to grind the entire business of government to a halt, with an unparalleled number of Senate filibusters over even the most mundane matters, tying up hundreds of bills even approved by large “bipartisan” margins in the House. And all for the unabashed and declared purpose of paralyzing our legislature so that the American would experience so much pain and anger that they might exploit that to get back into power.

This must not happen. There must arise in every district of the country strong independent candidates for office, and the people must organize themselves to rally behind the best and most worthy independent challengers. And then ALL incumbents without exception must be removed from office in the next election possible.

We have barely 7 months to do it before the next general election, and we’d better get on it. The social media network we need is fully in place on the Facebook site with 300 million members. The basic conversational resource tools are there, and we have created our own astounding new application functions through the Voices tool.

All we are asking you to do is go there and talk among yourselves to get this thing started, and let’s get it together folks.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.

    Why we need Government-run universal healthcare ASSURANCE! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jng4TnKqy6A

    My Fellow Americans and People Of The World

    A strong Government-run MEDICARE like Public Option is STILL! CRITICAL!

    We have had a long hard struggle to find out what would be the BEST! that this congress and the Whitehouse could do to fix our highly dangerous, poor quality, most costly, and MOST! disgraceful healthcare delivery system in the world. It is clear that congress can do much more for the American people than what is proposed so far.

    It is clear that congress can pass a strong GOVERNMENT-run public option CHOICE. Available to everyone on day one. Expand Medicare and not levy any new taxes on workers healthcare benefits and plans. LET THIS BE YOUR LINE IN THE SAND!

    Lastly, there can be NO! INDIVIDUAL MANDATES without a strong Government-run MEDICARE like Public Option CHOICE. Or the American people WILL! and SHOULD! revolt with an all out CIVIL WAR against congress and this Government.

    House and Senate progressives and the tri-caucuses should aggressively push for the inclusion of a strong Public Option, Medicare expansion, and no new taxes on workers healthcare benefits and plans. If the obstructionist kill meaningful healthcare reform, it’s failure will be on the obstructionist heads. And they will be punished and replaced.

    WITHOUT A PUBLIC OPTION CHOICE, THIS BILL WILL KILL FAR MORE AMERICANS THAN IT WILL SAVE.

    What is proposed in the Senate compromised bill is the worst case scenario for health-care reform. It would shift trillions of taxpayer, public and private dollars into the hands of the private insurance industry (The single most costly, deadly and dangerous product sold in America). And it would compel by law millions of Americans to financially support this oxymoronic criminal enterprise. You cant have a individual MANDATE WITHOUT A STRONG PUBLIC OPTION CHOICE!

    You will have NO! realistic way of controlling cost and quality. Cost will continue soaring through the roof bleeding the American people dry, and KILLing our economy. And our quality of healthcare will continue to decline below our current ranking of “WORST! quality of healthcare delivery in the developed World”.

    From the very start, the American people have been crystal clear about what they wanted. And the American people are CORRECT!! They wanted a humane single payer system like the rest of the developed world has (HR676). Or at least a humane strong GOVERNMENT-run public option CHOICE!! This is what the American people gave the democrats control of the house, control of the senate, and control of the Whitehouse to do. Including at one time a SUPER MAJORITY in the Senate.

    Those of you that can, should prepare now to remove every member of congress that fails to support YOUR healthcare reform with a strong Public Option, Medicare expansion, and no new taxes on workers healthcare benefits and plans. Run against them in teams if you have to. But take them out. And replace them with a strong single payer or PRO PUBLIC OPTION CHOICE candidate.

    Now! is the time to bring maximum pressure on your members of congress. Contact your representatives and spread the word.

    H1N1 IS A WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION!

    I have to tell you now that the H1N1 virus is a man-made WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION! and TERROR! It is a WEAPONIZED version of a flu virus. It has swept the planet infecting millions. And causing a global pandemic that has killed tens of thousands, and injured millions.

    The H1N1 virus is the product of the DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN PRIVATE FOR PROFIT MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! It was released in the U.S. in Texas in early January of last year, but not recognized until around April 2009 in California. The reason I know this is because when it came to America, it came to see me FIRST! How sweet…

    This was around the time the MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! assaulted the Whitehouse with all their devils deals to cripple and weaken YOUR! healthcare reform. Especially your right to have a single payer system like HR676 (Medicare For All) which most of you wanted.

    They don’t even want you to have your HUGE!!! compromise position of a strong government-run MEDICARE like Public Option CHOICE. To compete with their DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN, MURDEROUS, PRIVATE FOR PROFIT PRODUCT (The single most costly, deadly and dangerous product sold in America).

    They also wanted to take away your rights to have your government meet it’s responsibility to use it’s full power to regulate, negotiate, and control drug cost, healthcare cost and quality. Something every other civilized country in the developed World has done for it’s people. Their Greed! moral degeneracy and lack of patriotism knows no bounds.

    Many of you will remember that before we knew about H1N1. I posted a open message to the President and Congress warning them to be vigilant about their health, and cautious about any medical advice they received. As I said then “they will not hesitate to try and hurt you”.

    The U.S. and the World have been under a BIOLOGICAL TERROR ATTACK! for over a year now. It is CRITICAL that We The People Of The United States take away control of our healthcare system from the GREED DRIVEN MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!

    For our own National security, and the security of the world.

    A Strong, government-run, MEDICARE like Public Option CHOICE. Available to everyone on day one, with the full unfettered power of the federal government to regulate, negotiate, and control cost and quality. Would be the most workable way to deal with this global crisis at this time. Including patent suspensions as needed for national security or the greater good.

    As an American I invite the peoples of the World to help us fix our healthcare crisis. And bring pressure on our government to meet it’s responsibility to protect global security by controlling, and removing the corrupting influence of GREED and the PRIVATE FOR PROFIT motivations from healthcare in the U.S. and around the World.

    I call on the governments of the World and the global intelligence community to track down these MASS MURDERERS, and bring them to justice. CONNECT THE DOTS! And be vigilant that they don’t slip in another viral strain on you under the cloak of H1N1 sequestration.

    Further, the proposed patent protection on biologic’s must be stripped from the US bill. And greatly shorten/restricted, or abolished completely. This is a grave danger to humanity and global security.

    We must be strong and insist that healthcare reform be done right for the American people. Or everyone loose’s.

    This is all I can say in a message post. I’ll try to find a way to tell you more later.

    God Bless You My Fellow Human Beings

    p.s. The so-called nominal H1N1 virus is designed in such a way as to make it more lethal to children and young adults. The medical community must be more vigilant of secondary bacterial infections in the young caused by H1N1. And remember, a viral infection is also a transfer of genetic code to you. Think about it, and be vigilant. 😦

  4. there’s enough evidence of stolen elections in 2000 and 2004 etc……but I’ve been voting since I could, often writing in the names or voting 3rd party. Incumbents have no accountability- and that has to stop. Their contempt for the people is abhorrent.
