Celebrating These United States-Bob Davis Podcast 818

These days it is common to hear all kinds of cute ideas about changing the nature of our government. What’s good for the goose is not necessarily what’s good for the gander, especially when it comes to rights. Learn more in Celebrating These United States-Bob Davis Podcast 818.

A Republic Madam, If You Can Keep It

Moreover, apparently it has become controversial to correctly refer to The United States as a Representative Republic. Sanding and buffing away the differences in search of ‘democracy‘ in “These United States” has created a nearly monolithic “The United States”.

Civil War and World War 2

Especially relevant in this process were two significant events for the US and the world. The US Civil War and Reconstruction, and World War 2. Both events had far reaching consequences. I’ll explain why and how in Celebrating These United States-Bob Davis Podcast 818.

Buy Local

Consequently I think it is time to celebrate “These United States” as a concept. I have traveled on back roads all over this country. I have learned and often talked about the differences between states. While these differences should be celebrated, our politicians seem hell bent for leather to sand away the federal system. It’s time to suggest this action negatively effects our individual rights.

Sovereignty

When it comes to our local, state and federal governments a key word is sovereignty. The concept of joint sovereignty in the United States federal system is often overlooked when it comes to politics. The fact that this is what makes it all work, is lost on politicians who want a chicken in every pot, or tell us our boys won’t be sent to any foreign wars.

Pure Democracy is the Mob

Finally I think one of the most overused words in politics today is ‘democracy‘. We are not a ‘democracy’. As a people we don’t decide every issue. We elect representatives to do that for us, so we can get on with the pursuit of happiness. When representatives start messing with sovereign rights it is time to “throw the bums out” regardless of party.

Don’t Mess With The Core Code

In conclusion when politicians start tinkering with the core code, getting rid of the electoral college, expanding the power of the federal government, turning the Supreme Court into a mini senate and increasing the membership of congress we should pay attention.

When government is used to solve all the world’s problems and “make” us happy, tyranny is often the result.

General Motors Plant Closings Ruin Trump’s Day-Bob Davis Podcast 783

General Motors announced deep job cuts and plant closings recently. President Trump got angry. Find out what the real story is in General Motors Plant Closings Ruin Trump’s Day-Bob Davis Podcast 783.

Thousands Laid Off On Cyber Monday

Thousands laid off. Plants closed. People in Michigan and Ohio stunned. Now Trump is threatening the pull US Subsidies for Car Companies. See how it played out on Cable News here.

GM Says Cars Aren’t Selling

Most workers in Michigan and Ohio wanted to know why. GM says the Chevy Volt, Cruze, Impala, Buick LaCrosse and the Cadillac XTS aren’t selling.

Everyone Is Mad

Workers, unions and consumers are mad. So is the president. Most noteworthy are the taxpayers on the hook for billions in borrowed money to bail out the auto companies.

Can The Mighty Trump Fix It?

Moreover it’s the government’s job to create jobs and make sure we make what we consume in the US. Right? That was Trump’s campaign message to voters in Ohio, Michigan in Wisconsin. But, Trump represents a new “Republican Conservatism“, right? Learn more in General Motors Plant Closings Ruin Trump’s Day-Bob Davis Podcast 783.

A New Day For Republicans

It’s a new day. These days Wisconsin spends four billion dollars to create thirty thousand jobs. Trump can force Carrier to keep a plant in Indiana open.

The same plant that just announced 200 job cuts.

Obama’s Fault?

“It’s Obama’s Fault” say social media conservatives. Which president and which party urged bipartisan action to bail out the automakers? The answer is most noteworthy. To find out, download General Motors Plant Closings Ruin Trump’s Day-Bob Davis Podcast 783.

Bail Outs and Picking Winners

Finally, do conservatives believe the government should use tax dollars to bailout companies that are failing? What about higher taxes on companies as well as trading partners overseas? Furthermore do republicans believe the government should borrow money to subsidize plants for Elon Musk? Or stadia and other local building projects in cities?

In conclusion we can only wonder where all this leads. Isn’t it more like Italy in the 1920’s than the liberty and freedom we associate with the United States? That is a question especially for republicans?

Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762

In Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762, I wonder if republicans and democrats really stand for different ideas about the future.

The Deep State

It’s especially relevant that our government is so complex we have to worry about who is ‘running the country’.

Who Runs The Country?

Fact is, our elected representatives just operate the government. We run the country. Almost four hundred million Americans. Working. Raising families. Starting businesses. Going about our lives.

Failed Leadership From Both Parties

Most noteworthy? The people we send to Washington DC don’t seem to be able to actually run our government.

Same Coin Different Day

Because republicans and democrats prove every day they represent two different sides of the same coin. Find out why I say that, in Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762.

Borrow, Spend and Tax

As a result, one party borrows trillions for ‘public works’ and ‘programs’. The other borrows trillions for ‘tax cuts’ and spending on defense.

Your Uncle Sam Is A Deadbeat

Above all every year the government gets bigger and further in debt.

Distract High School Distract Rape Distract Drinking

Meanwhile the millionaires in Washington have us fighting about what happened to two high school kids 36 years ago.

Real Power? Who Cares

Due to this no one can be bothered to talk about the nominee’s views on executive power, enhanced interrogation or surveillance.

Dangerous Situation

The immense power of government is dangerous to all of us. Doesn’t matter whether you fly the red or blue flag. No one is advocating exclusively for liberty and freedom from these enormous government agencies. Certainly not republicans or democrats.

Limiting The Power Of The State and Liberty

In conclusion the whole history of liberal democracy has been to limit and control state power. We seem to have forgotten that growth in government power causes its inefficiency and creates the conditions that breed tyranny. Learn more in Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762.
