State of the Union Report, October 2014

President Obama does not listen to the People, as he claimed he would in 2008. He does not listen to Congress. He has continually been caught lying, as well as his czars and department chiefs. Like too many voters, they were chosen for political loyalty and popularity instead of qualifications and experience.
In his weekly address to Americans, Obama stated:
We can't just cut ourselves off from West Africa. Trying to seal off an entire region of the world – if that were even possible, could actually make the situation worse.
Yet nearly every African nation has already done so, plus several other countries and airline companies have imposed a ban or at least restrictions on Ebola contaminated countries in West Africa. It is because quarantines are not just common sense – they work.

But try to tell that to the social organizer who became a senator (briefly and ineptly because he missed more votes on the floor than he attended) and who would become President of the United States because of his race. A man who got a Noble Peace Prize and people are still wondering why and how.
Some of the points made in the previous video are far fetched, but it certainly demonstrates how the federal government has lost the people's confidence - the horror of unethical experimentation depicted in the video is an example of why government, those that operate it, are no longer trusted. Yet, those officials got into office because the people put them there with their votes. So who is truly to blame, ultimately?
Ann Coulter wrote in her column:
It's becoming increasing clear that this is just another platform for Obama to demonstrate that we are citizens of the world.
Obama, as commander-in-chief, has sent thousands of US troops with only four hours training to West Africa to help combat the virus. It is like his attitude towards our southern border and dealings with the Mexican government – the United States and its people take a back seat to his agenda.
Topping all of this bad news, a conservative watchdog group reports that there are claims that Obama's administration is considering letting Ebola infected foreigners in the United States for treatment – at taxpayer expense and danger to the populace. The watchdog group is Judicial Watch:
Judicial Watch has learned that the Obama administration is actively formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment. Specifically, the goal of the administration is to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis. It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients. The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola. One source tells us that the Obama administration is keeping this plan secret from Congress. The source is concerned that the proposal is illegal; endangers the public health and welfare; and should require the approval of Congress.
If a president has no fear of impeachment, why should he care what the people think or value constitutional law that prescribes limited government, especially limitations of the executive branch?
At a minimum, it suggests that he takes his conception of himself as a citizen of the world more seriously than he takes his role as President of the United States. At worst, he may consider Americans' interests expendable in the grand scheme of things internationally. If so, this would explain a lot of his foreign policy disasters around the world, which seem inexplicable otherwise. Those critics who have been citing Barack Obama's foreign policy fiascoes and disasters as evidence that he is incompetent may be overlooking the possibility that he has different priorities than the protection of the American people and America's interests as a nation. This is a monstrous possibility. But no one familiar with the history of the twentieth century should consider monstrous possibilities as things to dismiss automatically. Nor should anyone who has followed Barack Obama's behavior over his lifetime, and the values that behavior reveals. … No one knows at this point how big the Ebola danger may turn out to be. But what we do know is that official reassurances about this and other dangers have become worthless.
Obama fans cannot cry racism because Thomas Sowell is an African American - and distinguished citizen.
Barack Hussein Obama, alias Barry Soetro, has consistently lied and finagled his way through the world of politics since he was a community socialist organizer. One of the reasons why BH Obama should not have been eligible to run as presidential candidate was because he has a dual citizenship. But does constitutional law matter anymore? 
The IRS with its budget cuts since it was revealed how much of those tax dollars it wastes, and after the revealing and disgusting scandal concerning its power to destroy – one would think those that operate that hated agency would be more customer friendly. Nope. They have what I call the 'government employee syndrome'. It is an attitude of not acting like they are servants of the people, but chieftains assigned to keep the peasantry in line.
I have been an advocate that Americans should insist and elected officials should make sure that April 15th becomes just another day – and that government never again tax what people earn for a living – directly. That requires that the 16th Amendment be repealed and replaced with a flat-rate consumption tax that does not tax purchases of homes or food. It means finally passing a viable and concrete edition of the FairTax Act, pushed in Congress since 2000.
It would certainly take away the unconstitutional power of the most hated government agency, making it an unobtrusive accounting department. Every year Americans point out the value of this form of taxation over income tax and how it would benefit both government and the People.
But there are too many who like those refund checks, not realizing that the government has, and will continue to, play a shell game with your lives.
Bruce Bialosky wrote an article at Townhall and revealed that …
The Internal Revenue Service’s electronic filing system will be shut down for maintenance from October 11-13 reopening sometime on October 14th.
Worse, the system for tax payments goes by the quarter – so how are citizens going to make their tax payments? Some citizens are required to make quarterly payments electronically. Read Bialosky's article of his experience when calling the IRS Press Office to find out what was going on. He mainly wanted to know why not shutdown IRS for maintenance after October 15th, when quarterly tax payments are due.
All of this could be solved if the income tax system no longer existed, which means no more expenses of tax preparers and myriad of paperwork. Indeed, this would solve the interference of the federal government into the issue concerning same-sex marriage (which is up to state government, not federal) – because the major reason why homosexuals want to be married is because of the income tax code. Married couples get a better break than single citizens. Another example of unfair practices of the income tax system, along with its draconian progressive percentage system.
With persons like who are seated in Congress and controlling the executive branch we have today, as well as justices in the US Supreme Court – it is no wonder why the dreadful income tax system is still in operation. A consumption tax is better because there is a greater chance of less tax fraud. 

In matters of national security and foreign policy, Bob Morrison and Ken Blackwell co-wrote an article entitled A Thousand Times More Dangerous Than ISIS
...The Israelis can joke about an Iranian nuclear bomb because they are on the front line. They know what it would mean. They don’t go on and on about “stability” in the Middle East the way our State Department types do. There hasn’t been stability in the Mideast in our lifetime and there is no likelihood of stability being achieved there in the future. All the Western journalists’ gushing about the “Arab Spring” has produced not one country with a semblance of stability, freedom, or genuine change. … Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, recently put the Mideast turmoil in perspective. “A nuclear Iran would be a thousand times more dangerous than ISIS,” This administration is simply not serious about stopping Iran from getting the bomb. The fact that Mr. Obama has set November 24th as his artificial deadline for progress in the nuclear arms talks is most illuminating. That is Monday before the traditional get-out-of-town fever hits Washington. Congressmen and staffers will be focused on Thanksgiving Recess, not on talks in Europe about Iran’s endless and monotonous negotiations. Iranians have long since mastered the technique of talking their opponents to death. … Nothing this administration has done can prevent that dread day. And, if a nuclear explosion is “a thousand times brighter than the sun,” Ambassador Dermer is right: A nuclear Iran is a thousand times more dangerous than ISIS.
Read the John Ransom article where he posts commentary and his response to Obamanites and democratic-socialists. Here is a sample …

Dear Brother Anderson,
The Democrat Party has been a bunch of secular humanists for quite some time. This isn’t Harry Truman’s Democrat Party, although I’ll admit that Truman’s economic policies were really bad. I disagree with your evaluation of Obama however. First of all, he’s dedicated his whole life to running for office. There has to be a microchip dislodged in anyone’s brain to decide to do that. Also, there’s no evidence that we have from his professional body of work that Obama has nothing but average intelligence. Quite the contrary actually. Uniquely in American history, Obama was given the opportunity to help heal centuries of racial division as the first black president. An opportunity like that, to really change something that has plagued our country for hundreds of years, may not come again. … Lincoln saw his place in history and took advantage of what history had denied others. Obama squandered his opportunity. He chose poorly. And why? Because Obama is enthralled by the most outdated and discredited economic theories- ever. And because he couldn’t openly argue for them, he tried to impose them by fiat on the rest of us.
Martin Luther King stated that people should be judged by their character, not by the color of their skin. That especially concerns political candidates and elected officials. Obama was not elected because of his qualifications and especially not for his voting and political record – which makes it just as much a problem and ethically wrong as not voting for someone because of race or gender.
Voting is a duty, voting responsibly is essential. Remember that this November election and every primary and final election from now on and pass the importance of responsible voting to your children. It is the only way to get America back on track, the only way true reform will take place, and the only way to keep our constitutional republic that Benjamin Franklin had doubts that We the People would be able to keep.

Explanation of the Fair Tax Act ...
video
Demand that your representative and senators repeal the 16th Amendment and change our tax system from income to consumption at a flat rate that can only be changed by a two-thirds congressional vote and signed by the President of the United States. Make Congress more responsible for their actions and justify what they earn as elected officials. 
Consumption tax is more understandable and fair than income tax, as a 17-year-old points out:
It is time that voters use common sense and insist that candidates and elected officials are constitutionalists who also rely upon common sense instead of political agenda and comrade socialism.
Here is an example, an alternate view of the tax system crisis, of how brainwashed Americans view of the issue between the income tax and the consumption tax proposal for its replacements - allegedly busting 'myths' - but as you see for yourself, just nonfactual hype. ... 
You decide who makes sense and is telling the truth and basing their presentation with facts and true statistics. I might point that the person in the previous video obviously did not read the Fair Tax Act or does he know much about the income tax system, totally missing the points made in the compressive explanation video. At some points, it is hard to determine just what tax system the person agrees to.
Here is another view by a Libertarian, Mises Institute ...
