Why We MUST Get $ OUT of Politics!

Wed Mar 20, 2013, 11:28 AM







Hello friends, the world has many problems to solve, poverty, war, and political corruption widespread. 
Here in the United States, we have a major issue with solving issues such as war and political corruption, and it's because special interest groups are permitted to funnel unlimited amounts of money into politics to basically bribe our politicians to act in their favor.

                                                                                                          What can we do about it?

SIGN the petition if you only got a few spare seconds on your schedule.  If you have more time, you can donate to the cause, spread the word, and most importantly... CALL your representatives. Cenk of The Young Turks has a good tutorial on this. Please click www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdIcCq…  If you care about global warming, reducing the military budget to a realistic amount, staying out of destructive wars, or just in general want your representatives to do a better job of representing the United States, it is important we put strict limits on how much special interest groups are allowed to contribute to political campaigns.

                                                                                                  How Money Corrupts our Politicians

Time and time again, congress has betrayed the interests of the American people's interests. The people want more action to combat global warming, we support ending tax breaks and subsidies to all oil and coal industries and want to extend tax breaks to renewable energies. Polls released show we want an increase in NASA's budget. And overwhelming majority of Americans have been in favor for faster withdrawals from Afghanistan, and to repeal "Citizens United" which allows for pretty much unlimited amount of special interest groups.

To fix the issue, we must keep special interest groups from buying our politicians.
The future of humanity depends on solving issues such was war poverty and our broken justice system.
Lets face the facts here, as long as our politicians are spending on average between 50-75% of their time begging and calling special interest groups to give them money, don't expect them to focus much on what the American people and the Earth people want.

They just want to get re-elected, and as shown before, whoever raises the most money typically wins.
Privatized prisons are a great example of our broken justice system. Some companies like the idea of making prisoners work for less than minimum wage so that they can make greater profit? Who benefits from this? Not tax payers, why? Because more people in prison will get more laborers so that these specific companies profit.

Tax breaks to oil companies still exist despite the fact most Americans are against that. Oil companies have a pretty long history of  lobbyists hovering around Washington pushing their agenda and funneling political money into our politicians.
Privatized Prisons spent 45 million dollars on lobbying.

Privatized Prion Lobbyists:

Opensecrets on oil
PBS also has an excellent article on this:
www.pbs.org/now/shows/347/oil-…

In a world threatened by human contributed Climate Change, it is completely illogical for the long term survival of humanity to keep giving tax breaks to these oil companies when we should be pushing for Renewable and other forms of Alternative Energies. In a world in which we are suppose to be getting more humane, is it justified to allow for the profitation off prisoners which DOES NOT reduce the cost of prisons, but actually does the exact opposite.

thinkprogress.org/justice/2012…?
TYT has a great well cited break down of how privatized prisons actually wastes tax payer money www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEdgI3….

The system is broken, and the biggest thing we can do as an American is to fix this. Join WolfPac www.wolf-pac.com to get involved, if you are just too lazy to do much, least you can do is sign the petition www.wolf-pac.com/petition.

I really appreciate you putting this up. I can get behind most of it and really appreciate the sentiment. I also like to see people who are standing up to make a difference. However, I don't agree that global warming is man created. I'm not saying either that we shouldn't be aware of our interactions with the environment, look at oil spills etc., but that this is a naturally occurring pattern that can be seen throughout the ages. It's an observable pattern, but the mainstream is pushing this agenda as well as many shell and front companies and bunk research institutes so that they can push their carbon taxes and set up their carbon czars. It's for more control and power, the exact sentiment I feel you are trying to fight in this thread. Just follow the money and what will you find? That's right the Rothschilds are standing to make the most from enforcing a carbon tax, that should lift some eyelids right there. And seeing as they are arguably the most powerful family in the world, it's not hard to see how they could easily stack the cards in their favor here as far as swaying public opinion, etc. When you own everything and everyone it's easy to pull a rabbit out of your hat...nearly unlimited budget and means.

Global climate change is actually not solely caused by either man or nature, it is a combination effect of both, and in the long run it can have undesired consequences.

I've checked the data on climate change, and the warming between 1900s-2013 which is a little over 1 C is unusually fast. Factors such as changes in Earth's orbit, tilts, and other cycles have been ruled out as the primary changes in the recent warming. The Sun's solar irradiance has been roughly flat since the 1970s according to NASA yet temperatures accelerate upwards.

Most scientists who study climate conclude that climate change is a concern, and it is not solely caused by climate or man but both, and we are to solve the issue by making things more energy efficient, investing in renewable energy sources such as research funding, subsidizing, and reduce subsidies and tax breaks to oil and coal industries.

"we are to solve the issue by making things more energy efficient, investing in renewable energy sources such as research funding, subsidizing, and reduce subsidies and tax breaks to oil and coal industries." I can agree with this and stand behind such progressions, however, for the political purposes alone I think this is an issue that warrants a lot of skepticism with which measures politics would like to entice to allow them to set up.

I appreciate that you've looked into this. However my research shows that there is direct sun spot and flaring activity linked to this. As is also evident by the increasing temperatures on other planet's as well, not just ours. These changes are running parallel and a common denominator for them both is this increased solar activity.

So basically NASA is concluding that solar radiance plays a role, but in recent times, it's forcing and differences are smaller than what is caused by man-made GHG.

I'm Glad that you agree with our progressive views on solving the problem, the fact that fossil fuels are finite and quite pollutive.

However, I would like to add that as shown by NASA, the solar radiance has not increased much at all and they calculated that the warming caused by human activities outweigh the warming caused by the Sun.

"The magnitude of the solar forcing, which varies about 0.25 W/m2 from solar minimum to solar maximum, is much smaller than the forcing by human-made greenhouse gases. However, the most relevant comparison of the solar forcing is with Earth's energy imbalance, 0.580.15 W/m2 (Hansen et al., 2011), because the combined effect of all forcings is less than that of greenhouse gases alone, and much of the greenhouse gas forcing has been "used up" in causing the warming of the past century. It is apparent that the solar forcing is not negligible in comparison with the net climate forcing. " Nasa [link]

As for warming on other planets, Mars was caused by global dust storms changing the darkness and brightness of it's deserts,if the dust storms change the dark and light areas in a such a manner, it may arrange them in such a way that Mars would warm. Pluto dwarf planet is caused by it's elliptical orbit, it is still getting closer to the Sun and will pass inside Neptune's orbit in 2226 A.D.
Jupiter is getting warming near the equators and cooler near the poles.

Good luck America on getting yourself fixed :/ As someone once said, money has/is power.

Oh, and congrats on the DD.
