Not a Dictatorship

Our government is a democracy with three branches - not a dictatorship. Our president's role should not be to "punish" people who stand up for their own interests - or to threaten members of Congress.

I believe that President Obama is doing what he can to facilitate the passage of the best legislation that he believes he can realistically get passed. As Teddy Roosevelt pointed out, it is a lot easier to be the critic in the stands - pointing out how everything theoretically should get done - than the leader in the world, making sure that something actually does get done.

It appears Mr. Goldsmith that "the people" rule the Country, when representatives refuse to hear them.

The abusive 3 branches have done what they wanted, and not what the people wanted in bailouts, stimulous, and porkulous, and that has come home to roost as "abuse of the people".

The people are apparently, simply unwilling to return to their abusers trying to be heard anymore.

The petition to Redress for No Confidence in the the Federal Government of the United States of America by recall (every member named) of Congress, The Hill, The Cabinet, The Czars, and Obama, apparently have replaced trying to be heard at town hall meetings.


The petitions are quietly being gathered and taken to a central recordation number at the local County recordation offices to enter as a document, to then be poooled with other Countys and entered into the Library of Congress, as a historical document of the No Confidence vote of the peopleof each State enmasse, all ages.

The bales of snail mail ignored on the Bailouts resulted in the TEA PARTY revolt.

Stimulous drove millions away from both partys to the Indepenednt Party.

The Obama Joker face demand for Congress to place Obama on medical stand down for NPD sociopathic dual profiles emerged.

It isn't like the people have been sheeple trying to wake up Congress.

Now, it looks like the people are just done hearing this Federal group of clowns entirely, and are turing to the tools available to them to create their voice for history.
Redress petitions No Confidence recall documentation is the refusal to hear any more from the current Federal Government, isn't it?
