A campaign to rein in Congress, president

WASHINGTON – Do you believe massive government deficit spending can pull the American economy out of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression?

If not, you may want to grab the attention of your elected officials in the nation’s capital, because they are already planning still more emergency stimulus packages and bailout schemes.

“There’s only one thing that can stop this madness now,” says WND Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah. “That is massive – and I mean massive – public expressions of outrage and objection. Members of Congress and the president need to know they are not going to be returned to office in 2010 and 2012 if they continue to follow this failed path of socialism and generational theft. They need to know Americans won’t stand for their country being stolen away from them. That’s why I am launching this petition campaign.

Farah has had success with two other previous petitions on WND – one to help free U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean from prison, and another that has gathered more than 330,000 names calling on all controlling legal authorities to establish conclusively that Barack Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve as president.

The Ramos and Compean families credited WND’s campaign with helping to secure a commutation of their sentences, and the eligibility petition is still being used to get hearings for some of the lawsuits pending on that issue.

However, Farah believes dealing with this issue of deficit spending by government is critical to averting an economic crisis that could rival the Great Depression in scope.

“We’re simply repeating the mistakes of the past with these policies,” he said. “Debt is the problem. How do you alleviate the problem by increasing the debt? This approach of massive government spending was tried by Franklin Delano Roosevelt and failed miserably. After two terms and eight years, the Depression was worse than when he first took office, by any standard of measurement. Only World War II pulled the country out of it. Are Americans ready to endure economic misery for that long – or longer?”

If you agree that government needs to stop the crisis spending as a prelude to recovery, Farah urges you to sign the petition before America’s economic and political institutions are irreversibly damaged.

    I’m in for what good it will do. I know I’m a born cynic, but “We The People” are routinely ignored by all levels of government until its election time when we’re promised the world, but when the election is over we’re again ignored.

    One of the reasons for the American Revolution was ‘No taxation with representation’. Today we aren’t being represented, we’re being fleeced and ignored.

    Civil discourse for now, after April 15th, it’s going to become a lot less *civil*…

  5. BobF says:

    Think about it? FDR tried to spend our way out of the depression and things were worse after his 8 years in office. Only WWII and our entry into it, pulled the country out of the depression. That lends credence to the theory many people have that FDR knew of the impending attack on Pearl Harbor and allowed it to take place. Up until Pearl Harbor, the vast majority of Americans wanted no part of the war.
