SEC - Heads Should Roll

Just as Socialist President Obama wants to create another government agency to police Wall Street, it was recently determined that 31 employees at the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC), the agency that is now supposed to police Wall Street, have been spending their time at work viewing porn sites. In fact, one SEC senior attorney spent as much as 8 hours a day on porn sites. And, when his hard drive (no pun intended) was full, he actually created porn CD's and stored them in his office. This was all happening during the last 2 1/2 years in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, which included the Madoff Scandal that bilked thousands out of billions of dollars. And, these were not just low level staffers. 17 of the 31 employees involved earned salaries as high as $222,418.

The SEC issued a statement indicating that some of these employees would be dismissed and/or "disciplined". The question is, why aren't these SEC employees being FIRED? Government is out of control. There is no accountability. The bureaucracy is self perpetuating. And, we know now that government employees, fully loaded, are paid more than comparable private sector employees. Yet Obama wants to raise taxes on the 50% of Americans that pay taxes to expand government even more. What is wrong with this picture?

If 20% of government employees were all FIRED tomorrow, I doubt most Americans would even notice because many of these jobs are either make work jobs, or unnecessary pork barrel spending. Why don't we just demand that government shrink by 20% rather than raise taxes. And, while we are at it, let's cut pay by 10% and bring benefits in line with the private sector. This is the New Normal that has been happening across America for the past several years; so why not give government a dose of reality therapy.

Of course, this will never happen as long as Obama and the Socialists control Congress because they are owned lock, stock and barrel by the public employee unions that donate millions to their campaigns. The career politicians in Washington DC have a vested interest in providing their union employee friends salaries and benefits that are bankrupting our country. And, these Socialist support big, tax and spend government because it is the basis of their power. Their goal is more control over our lives. We see this every day in every Obama Socialist Scheme. We must stand up and JUST SAY HELL NO.

The scandal at the SEC is indicative of government that is broken. Growing government even bigger only means more corruption and incompetence. While Obama promised that his HealthScare Plan would bring down health care costs, the Department of Health and Human Services in the Obama Administration just announced that cost are actually going to go up. Well surprise, surprise!! This is what all of us have been saying for months throughout the HealthScare debate.

We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives who support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, a strong national defense, real energy independence and health care reform, term limits, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. Most important, we must elect Conservatives who support the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by our current Socialist President, former Presidents, Congresses or the Courts. This is the winning platform. We have to take back our country. We can do it. We must do it.

P.S. GM is running commercials saying that they have paid back their $5 Billion government loan early. In a smoke and mirrors deal, what GM is not saying is that they used tax payer TARP Bail Out money to pay back this loan. What a joke! And, it doesn't matter anyway because the government owns 61% of GM as a result of the other $45 Billion of our tax payer money given to GM by Obama as a pay off to the auto union, that is still outstanding. Government Motors, owned by Obama, is still Government Motors. Buying a car from GM is like buying a car from the Post Office or Amtrac, which are also bankrupt.
