Flashback: "Is Congress Bankrupting America? "

Joe Scarborough’s “Rome Wasn't Burnt in a Day” declared 'yes'":

 The book shows that Democrats and President George Bush with the Republican Congress are “bankrupting America by launching the biggest spending spree in the history of the United States.”

Former Congressman Scarborough from his experience in the Contact with America Republican Revolution shows that a machine such as in the movie “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” runs America.

Scarborough writes convincingly that America is being bankrupt by “political intrigue in the bowels of Congress” as one reviewer said. If this is true then the question is how do we stop the ruining of the USA.

The book’s solution is the “Taxpayer Bill of Rights.” I will quote in full Joe Scarborough’s “Ten Proposals to Save America.” On page180-181 Scarborough writes:

“Frank Luntz, the pollster who wrote the first Contract with America, has devised a new set of reforms he calls the "Taxpayers Bill of Rights." It's a series of measures that would simplify how Washington ... restrain how they spend it. I have borrowed from Luntz's proposal and combined his ideas with my political reforms; I believe these ten proposals would change the way Washington works:

I. Ban congressmen, senators, and White House officials from lobbying for five years.
2. Freeze the pay of congressmen, senators, and White House officials until the federal budget is balanced. This includes cost-of-living adjustments!
3. Force political candidates to immediately scan and post all campaign contributions on their campaign website. Failure to do so results in criminal penalties.
4. Pass term limits now! Since the House of Representatives authorizes the federal spending, limit House members to three terms (six years).
5. Make Congress and every Washington bureaucracy undergo an independent, professional audit, line by line, program by program, every four years.
6. Pass a constitutional amendment requiring Washington to balance the budget every year except when Congress passes a resolution declaring a national emergency.
7. Create a federal rainy-day fund that would set aside one-half of one percent of all tax receipts each year for national, state, and local emergencies.
8. Reenact pay-as-you-go rules that would require Congress to offset new spending programs and tax cuts with spending cuts from other programs.
9. Reinstitute congressional spending caps that would force congressmen or senators to live within their previous spending projections. These caps will not be broken unless Congress passed a separate resolution declaring a national emergency described in number 6.
10. Pass a new American tax code written by a bipartisan panel of budget experts instead of the lobbyist groups who regularly carve out special-interest deductions and greatly simplify the tax system.”

Flashback: Virtue Signaling Francis Trads did to Frank Walker what RINO "Conservatives" are doing, now, to Trump

For Virtue Signaling Banning the Mass Francis Trads is Frank Walker the New Trump?   March 25, 2020 British conservative Daniel Hannan said: "Virtue signaling is competitive. When all your friends are anti-Trump, you have to go further." After President Donald Trump took office the liberal virtue signaling was very competitive with them, calling him every name in the book with death threats as well as 12,000 Tweets for his assassination and the famous Kathy Griffin's beheading Trump photo. After Canon 212 publisher Frank Walker made a headline which he later admitted he made a mistake on it appears that banning the Mass Francis traditionalists decided to join in the liberal-like behavior in a frenzy of virtue signaling against him. The Francis trads like the liberals are very competitive in their virtue signaling. Remember, when all your friends are anti-Walker, you have to go farther. The banning the Mass Francis traditionalists have issued num

"Catholics for Trump" Taylor Marshall has sure Gone Dark on the Subject... Wondering... Whole concept of Bogus Elections (as per Francis) is just a Bridge Too Far

For a guy who headed up a group called "Catholics for Trump," Taylor Marshall has sure gone dark on the subject in recent days.  His "What If Trump Loses?" show features his claim of not giving up, but all he has really said all week is to focus on our own spiritual lives. Nothing wrong with prayer and penance, to be sure! But I can't help wondering whether the whole concept of bogus elections (as per Francis) is just a bridge too far. Important Note : The publisher of the Catholic Monitor has made a pledge to say the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary everyday for a Rosary Lepanto-like victory for President Trump. He asks all CM readers to make this pledge. " THE HOLY ROSARY, MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY OF GOD AND MAN... Saint Pius V ordered the faithful to recite the Rosary to impetrate victory from God in the epic battle of the Christian Armada against the Turk in the waters of Lepanto: still today, at noon each day, the bells rin
