Obama's Perjury, Grand Larceny Exposed

Boulder, CO - It didn't take even a month for President Barack Obama to reveal his utter contempt for the Constitution, his oath of office, and the taxpayers' money. Tuesday afternoon, the President signed what may be the largest illegal spending bill in the history of the United States. The so-called "Stimulus Package" promises to squander $787 Billion in taxpayer money, almost every dime of which is unlawful under the provisions of Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the United States Constitution, which is supposed to be the supreme law of the land.

National Secretary John Pittman Hey commented: "There is no lawful authority for the government to take our money and spend it on the plethora of public works, transfer payments, subsidies, etc., which this bill is stuffed full of. It might as well have been titled the 'Future Generations Robbery Act,' since our children and grandchildren will be paying the interest, not to mention the value stripped from our dollars that deficit spending always
results in."

To their credit, almost all Republican congressmen voted against the illegal bill, but they have for the most part missed the point. "It's not that the bill is just one huge waste of money - it is," continued Mr. Hey, "but worse than that, it sets a new high-water mark - perhaps we should call it a new flood level - of impudent, illegal, scoff-law taking and spending by the folks in Washington. Congress and the President have committed perjury
against their oath of office, and grand larceny of almost $800 billion of the citizens' money."

"George Bush and his Republican bandits were bad enough - quadrupling the deficit, and spending wads of cash on illegal wars, bank bailouts, and slush funds for their fat-cat business friends. But Obama and the Democrats saw them and raised them. To say they spend like drunken sailors is to unfairly demean the sailors; at least sailors spend their own money!"

Most incredibly, Obama's rush to breach his oath of office - to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution - follows hard after the ridiculous pantomime he and the Chief Justice went through after they flubbed the lines on the Capitol steps. "What's the point in getting the words of the oath right if you have no intention to keep it?" asked Mr. Hey. "But at least he's keeping his campaign promises - he promised he'd defy the Constitution in almost every idea he articulated during the campaign. It seems he's more concerned with keeping faith with his supporters than with the God whose name he invoked in that botched, already broken twice-sworn oath he took. Today in America, we have bipartisan criminality: both Obama and Bush,
Republicans and Democrats, agree that the Constitution is just a piece of paper that need not be obeyed anymore."

More Dollar Busting, Toxic Stimulus Policies

Boulder, CO - With consumer confidence dropping to its lowest level on record in January, Congress is continuing efforts to stimulate consumer spending. The $789 billion plan, a combination of tax cuts and spending measures, would add to the $8.9 trillion of already existing federal commitments related to the present crisis, for a grand total of $9.7 trillion. This equals 70% of our GDP and 90% of the value of all domestic home mortgages. The largest share, $8 trillion, represents loan guarantees and loans under the Federal Reserve and FDIC. Recipients of these loans are unknown, even to Senate members.

In dollar terms, there is no logical limit to future stimulus efforts, since lawmakers have swallowed the notion that government fiscal resources are sufficient to alter the market's course. The present trend of skyrocketing debt and deficits may end when Congress sees diminishing returns; by then, future generations will face a greater load of inflation and debt, and the dollar may have only 10% of its present buying power.

The patchwork of policies being put into place by the Fed, Treasury Department, and Congress resembles a similar patchwork during the 1930s, collectively known as the New Deal. Unhappily, they caused wholesale prices to increase 23% in 2 years. In 1929, unemployment was 3%, and later peaked at 25% in 1933, the year that many key New Deal programs began. Despite these public works, subsidy, and price fixing programs, unemployment averaged 17% over the next 8 years, while the national debt doubled. Although unemployment dropped under the New Deal, it was not until World War II and 1943 that unemployment reached pre-depression levels.

"It is far from certain that fiscal stimulus programs will have more positive effects than negative in the long-term, and they are guaranteed to generate debt and inflation," stated National Chairman Jon Hill. "The stimulus may also delay recovery, but more importantly, it sets a dangerous precedent for federal involvement on a massive scale in the private sector, and is another big step outside the boundaries of the Constitution."

National Secretary John Pittman Hey stated, "Ironically, Fannie Mae, a New Deal stimulus program from 1938, is part of the cause of the crisis. If government had stayed within its constitutional limits in the 1930s, today's crisis would be lessened; we are now paying the price for the false belief that facilitating home ownership for low-income families is a federal interest."
