Im going to open todays blog post with the simple fact that I do not understand why Ron Paul will even give Glenn Beck the time of day. Glenn Beck ripped Ron Paul to shreds on his radio show and tv show on CNN before he came to Fox News.

Now that I have that all out of the way….

Glenn Beck speaks to Ron Paul about the Audit the Fed legislation before Congress. This is the furtherest this legislation has ever got (Ron Paul has introduced this bill for at least 2 decades to no avail)

The circle of taxpayer money being circulated is sickening. Many companies (banks mentioned here) are paying back the TARP (re: bailout) money so they can forego restrictions put upon them by the government. Of course, the taxpayer wont see a dime of this repayed money….it will go straight into the FEDs coffers.

Glenn Beck shows the viewing audience a graph…the debt to GDP ratio and yep, our country is definately in the crapper. We are NOT recovering from this recession….I wish the politicians would be honest…Our dollar is sinking and we are not creating jobs.

We can only begin to recover if we get to the bottom of our financial situation. We HAVE to audit the fed….and go from there.

Tell me again how bail outs are victories for taxpayers?

Let me just start out by saying I am not happy with what our government is doing. I am not happy that a disgusting amount of money is going to companies that do not deserve our money.

Don’t quote me, but with 700 billion dollars every American could receive somewhere in the neighborhood of $2000 a piece. That would be some economic stimulus plan….huh?

Apparently our banking system, which has been in place since the Great Depression, is failing. There are two reasons that I can come up with: 1) bad business practices and 2) corporate stealing.

Banks have been giving individuals loans for decades. These loans range from money for college, money for cars, and money for homes. Somewhere along the way, these financial institutions have given loans to those who do not qualify.

I am in shock at learning that some of these companies have qualified people that haven’t even proven they have jobs! Whenever I have applied for a loan, I’ve had to jump through hoops to prove not only that I was employed, but also that I made a certain amount of money.

What perplexes me the most about this “bailout” is that many are suggesting that there is severe mismanagement in these companies. If mismanagement is the case, then these companies should not be bailed out. The business practices of these companies should be re-examined.

As a taxpayer, I am tired of my money going to: programs that haven’t worked in years, programs that morally I am against, and companies that pay their CEOs, COOs, and CFOs millions of dollars a year.

Congress is doing everything in its power to hurry this legislation through before educating the taxpayers who’s money will be paying for these bailouts. We are being told that this will help our country, but how will this help our country when our financial system is going down the drain right before our eyes?

Recession-depression…..For crying out loud, we haven’t seen a real recession since the Reagan years.

And on another note: Read the book of Revelations. Seriously….is this what we are heading for?
