Here We Are
Mark A. Goldman                                                                   Dated:  9/1/07

Here are three postulates and two questions that I offer for your consideration:
  1. In order to get elected to high public office in America, you must be willing to tell people what they want to hear. If you tell the truth, or otherwise tell people what they need to hear in order to protect their freedom and way of life, you canít get elected.
  2. There is insufficient national income now being generated to pay our debts. We are essentially an insolvent nation. I now believe that the powers that be have no intention of paying our debts. When our creditors come to understand this, they will stop funding our purchases and our wars, and many more of our citizens will be thrown into poverty than are there now. Many others will, for the first time in their lives, have a very hard time making ends meet.
  3. We have lost many of the fundamental rights that are enumerated in our Constitution. Most of us have not yet lost our freedoms only because the freedoms we now enjoy do not exist as a matter of law, but rather they only persist at the pleasure of certain individuals.
  4. If a certain someone decides that you are somehow a threat to his or her plans and decides to remove you as a potential obstacle by taking your wealth or your freedom from you, who will risk their own wealth and freedom to defend you? And if you see someone being treated unjustly, will you risk your wealth and freedom to defend them?
