Another Old Letter:

Non-Violent Solution to the Total Systemic Failure of Government

I will first qualify by saying that it is not that I disagree with Taxation. BUT, the Taxes of the ordinary citizens are being impudently stolen and misappropriated and those within this government are the ones who are stealing it and brazenly using it for themselves to live high on the hog, right as they continue to cut public service programs.

The U.S. government itself has become the main problem and there is no band-aid solution to total systemic failure.

To be clear: I believe strongly in fair taxation if and only if the money is spent for the total abolition of Poverty in America; for the building and maintenance of infrastructure; Education for all citizens; Direct access to Health Care for all citizens, which will include the total elimination of “health care insurance;” And for the Programs that benefit the Common Good, that which has not been considered at all by this or any other government since LBJ’s Great Society Program.

Therefore, I disagree with paying, in any way, or supporting at all, a government that clearly represents corporate interests over any interests of We the People, the tax-paying citizens of the United States.

It is simply criminal and totally contemptible how you government “employees” are conducting yourselves. And let us remember the fact that these “employees” are only there to represent the interests of the Common Good of OUR country and the Common Good of OUR COUNTRY’S Citizenry. You are decidedly NOT supposed to be there to represent Corporate interests, particularly at the great expense of the poor, the needy, the elderly, the working poor, the disabled and the obliterated once-Middle Class.

The facts, however, remain. Your sole function, your Raison D’être, is for the Corporate Beast. Now, I think that it is indeed AMORAL and utterly IMMORAL what you “officials” are doing to the poor, dumb citizens who have been naive enough to have entrusted the likes of you people in OUR Government to “DO THE RIGHT THING.”

In short, America is in no way, shape or form “civilized;” America is One Gigantic, Laughable LIE and I will no longer support or endorse such a disgracefully corrupt and decidedly Callous, Blind, and Racist [joke of a] government.

My solution is as follows, but requires action of all citizens:

1. Stop paying All taxes: Local, State, Federal
2. Stop paying All Bank Debt
3. Stop paying All “Insurance” companies
4. Withdraw All Monies from Insolvent Banks
5. Stop working for slave-wages

Peaceful, non-violent demonstrations EN MASSE to DEMAND that each member, in each branch of this government, vacate their positions at once.

Here is a sample letter to government representatives stating intent:

Letter to Representative Lois Capps, D-CA

Ms. Capps, You are included in the following statement, by your abject incompetence; your total refusal to address the systemic failure of this government; and your total and willful ignorance of any and all real issues, along with your continued insistence on focusing instead on trifling, insignificant non-issues.

Thus, Ms. Capps, you are very much a part of the problem:

It is abundantly clear that the U.S. government, including the entire Congress, the entire “Judicial” system, and all other government agencies that clearly do not represent “We the People.” In fact, the U.S. government is wholly owned, lock, stock and barrel, by the Corporations, in cahoots with the Banks and the Wall Street Quislings, that have enthroned themselves to UnChecked POWER. This is known as Corporatism. Look it up for yourselves.

I am, therefore, calling for all of you, each and every other member of each and every branch of this horribly failing government; I am calling on YOU to remove yourselves at once, unceremoniously and without protest, from your career seats of total DISGRACE and thorough INJUSTICE.

Sincerely,

Christina Marlowe

“What a majority of the electorate, including supporters of corporations/capitalism fails to understand is where we really are: owned and operated by multinational corporations that hold absolutely no allegiance to any nation, Constitution or system of moral authority. Corporations who pick our leaders, buy our representatives, count our votes without oversight or confirmation, taint our food and foul our water and air, sicken our workers and benefit from their deaths. The corporations’ allegiance is to only money; nothing else. They pay little or no taxes, yet they impose policy and write laws to limit our power and unleash theirs.”

A Raft of a Few Favorite Quotes by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr….

A Raft of a Few Favorite Quotes by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

 

~I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.

total, direct and immediate abolition of poverty.

 

 

 ~The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
“Cowardice asks the question – is it safe?”
“Expediency asks the question – is it politic?”

“But conscience asks the question – is it right?”
“And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor
popular;  but one must take it because it is right.”
~Courage is the power of the mind to overcome fear.
~Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?

 

~When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.

 

 

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted

with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history
there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of
time. Life often leaves us standing bare, naked and dejected with a lost
opportunity. The ‘tide in the affairs of men’ does not remain at the
flood; it ebbs. We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage,
but time is deaf to every plea and rushes on. Over the bleached bones and
jumbled residue of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words:
‘Too late.’”

 

MLK, Jr.
