Contrast this with one of Scott Brown’s first votes in the Senate when he was the deciding 60th vote with the Democrat caucus for cloture to defeat the Vitter amendment to the financial reform bill. It would have subjected the Federal Reserve to a full audit for the first time in more than 50 years. An amendment, by the way, that passed the House on a bipartisan vote with more than 75 percent of representatives in favor.
Yet where is the support for Sen. Warren from the “right” when she advocates taking to task those who have undermined our banking system? It’s the same place support for Ron Paul was from the “left” when he advocated for true banking reform. Where is the condemnation of President Obama from the “left” for doing nothing to reform his largest campaign contributors, the investment banks? It’s in the same place as condemnation for Scott Brown was from the “right” when he failed to assert Congressional authority to control the currency.
It is this lack of critical thought and the courage to break rank by both Repubcrats and Demolicans that has allowed the United States to fall prey to the empty promises of party leaders. These same party leaders thrive at the trough of a Statist Corpocracy and have lost all semblance of respect for individual rights and liberties. These same leaders are responsible for creating the monetary and bureaucratic hurdles that hamper every effort we make at providing for ourselves. Yet we allow ourselves to be led to believe that our frustration in attempting to be self-sufficient can only be solved if we rely upon the promises of the ruling class to provide for us.
“You made me
You knew you’d never keep.
You knew that I’d believe.
