believe that President Elect Barack Obama will need some NEW IDEAS to help save
this country. We need to REINVENT
THE BOX and then THINK OUTSIDE of that one.
KNOW this SOUNDS CRAZY AT FIRST, however, in order to save this country . . .
CAN and MUST INCORPORATE the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.
This would accomplish several things at once.
by issuing STOCK in America 2.0, Inc. TO ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS we give us all
HOPE for the future and we pay the way for all our future SO-CALLED Entitlements
such as Social Security, Health Insurance, etc.
Secondly, we can hold all our leaders and executives to a higher standard
of simple business principles established and proven over the centuries.
THIRD, our government would STOP LOSING MONEY like itís going out of
style and at least attempt to MAKE MONEY every quarter.
There will even be times when our government can DECLARE and PAY us all
must REPORT to the SHAREHOLDERS and be held accountable for their actions.
By taking stock in America, we would also provide the right incentives to
EVERY AMERICAN WORKER to do a better job, to be more creative and more
productive and by participating in the MAJOR BENEFITS and the PROFITS of the
greatest economy in the world, we would all SHARE in the success of the greatest
country in the world, not just a select few.
is absolutely no reason why we cannot or should not do this.
It takes only the will of Congress and the People to do it.
It can be done with a single Amendment to the Constitution.
Just because it has never been tried in history doesnít mean it would
not make sense to do this now.
believe that Bush put us on the road to Socialism INTENTIONALLY and it was done
for a secret agenda which we cannot know and we must ALL WORK HARD TO REVERSE.
By making the United States of America a CORPORATION, we enter a new era
of Capitalism that is responsible to the major shareholders, the citizens of the
United States of America and in this ONE SIMPLE ACTION, we completely WIPE OUT
and OBVIATE the only real argument for socialism, to serve the needs of the vast
majority of people.
From the INTRODUCTION
America 2.0 Inc., the most mutual of mutual funds.
Imagine a State of the Union Address in which the President of the United States is happy to inform us that this past year, the United States of America had a PROFIT and that he was going to declare a DIVIDEND to all the shareholders, We The Citizens and Shareholders of this great corporation, of 10% because all of us had worked so hard in the past year that we had surpassed all other nations in the world in terms of Gross Domestic Product, Exports, Imports, and especially on the Happiness Index.
As this book is being written, the Bush Administration is spending 700 BILLION of our dollars to Nationalize the Banks. They first destabilized the banking system so that the largest banks could gobble up the weaker ones and now there are only a handful of banks that the Government can now purchase with YOUR MONEY. This is SOCIALISM. We just haven't tagged ourselves yet.
The ONLY COUNTER-MEASURE that the people may take now is to REVERSE the process on the Government by forcing them to INCORPORATE our Government. This INCORPORATION turns their plans to create SOCIALISM into a form of Capitalism that can actually serve the interests of the Middle Class and rescue us from their FINAL SOLUTION now planned for us, Communist Dictatorship.
WE MUST DO THIS NOW. It not only CAN HAPPEN, IT WILL HAPPEN someday soon, when We The People do finally unite and declare the United States to be a Corporation where all the Stock of the Corporation resides in the hands of its citizens. With enough STOCK in AMERICA, we can then CONTROL our CEO'S, elected officials who theoretically work for us, and HOLD them ACCOUNTABLE to a higher standard.
It may seem counter-intuitive to some that the Government should be run on a PROFIT and LOSS basis, but when you think about it, all we have had so far is a government that runs constantly on the LOSS BASIS, except for the one lone exception of the Clinton Administration that ended up reversing the losses of his Predecessor, George our Fearless Leader the Elder, and actually left office with 500 Billion Dollars In the BANK.
And, in Chapter Five Ė Analyzing the Balance Sheet, we give specific examples of how we could actually run this government on a Profit and Loss basis and have PROFITS most of the time. Please study this chapter in detail before making any final judgments of this plan.
At the risk of alienating many of my Republican friends, I must say that the principles put forth herein sound very radical to anyone who is a card-carrying member of the Republican Party and Iím certain that I will offend many of these. However, I want to state very emphatically that if the things that our fearless leaders and Congress have done to this country were done by any member of the Democratic Party, the Green Party, the Independent Party, the Libertarian Party or any other Party, I would be just as harsh on that person in my criticisms as I am for our fearless leaders and Congress because what he has done is nothing other than Treason. There is no other way to put it. There is no sugar-coating a crime of this magnitude and anyone, I donít care who it is, that betrays the United States of America is due all the criticism and disdain that We The People, blessed with our hallowed right of Free Speech that we can bring to bear.
The proof of the Treason of this President will be evidenced to the American People if and when there are a series of Hearings in the next administration. If the next President and Congress have the courage to hold these hearings, then, the truth may come out. If there are no hearings, we may never actually receive all the evidence. I have enough evidence, however, in the events of the last several years to satisfy me that this charge is accurate and so before we concurrently delve any deeper into the philosophy of this book, I need to detail the evidence so that there is no doubt as to the motivations for the writing of this book and the conclusions drawn from it.
First of all, our fearless leader, Commander-In-Chief of all United States Armed Forces, George W. Bush, turned our armies in the opposite direction of the FINAL KILL or CAPTURE of Osama Bin Laden. This has been documented by soldiers who were actually there and one of them has written a book about it and was featured on several of the most respected News Programs on Television and Radio as well as the Newspapers. Our armies were no more than 2,000 yards away from the cave that Osama Bin Laden was hiding in during the final battles against the Taliban in Afghanistan. He was surrounded in the steep mountains of Tora Bora and there was no escape, unless we pulled our army off of the foot of that mountain.
On the very day that our troops were set to either kill or capture Osama Bin Laden, the order came down to them from the White House to abandon their mission and turn in the other direction away from the final hiding place of Osama Bin Laden at the Mountains of Tora Bora,and all bombing of the cave was called off, even though the White House and our Commander-In-Chief of the Army, our fearless leaders and Congress had received word from our troops on the ground that Osama Bin Laden had been wounded and was almost ready to surrender.
This must have been Osama Bin Ladenís prayers to his God, Allah, being answered at last. We have records of Osama Bin Ladenís desperate radio-phone transmissions to his followers in the final fire fight with our troops on the ground at Tora Bora and Bin Laden believes at this moment that he is going to die this day. He apologizes to all of his followers and asks them to fight on to the last man and die for Allah right there the day, we LET HIM GO FREE.
Bin Laden was surrounded. We had him in a cave and our soldiers were only a few meters away from killing or capturing him, when BUSH ordered the RETREAT. There was ONLY ONE WAY for him to escape this mountain hideout because the other way into Pakistan was blocked by STEEP CLIFFS that he could not descend without proper equipment and he would have certainly known that. The only way out was through a small valley where our troops were waiting and had all bottled up.
When Bush ordered our troops to RETREAT and turn towards IRAQ, Bin Laden quickly found out about it through the local troops that we were using to help us in the fight. This alliance was not eager to kill the only Muslim in History who was able to attack America, and so even though we were giving them millions to side with us, they abandoned us the minute they saw our troops preparing to leave the scene. Then, our former allies even assisted Bin Laden to escape through the valley of the shadow of Death where we had him, and he was soon breathing the rarified free air of Pakistan.
We never had another chance at our enemy since that day under this cowardly Commander-In-Chief. In fact, Bush later disbanded the search for Bin Laden by shutting down the C.I.A. unit that was in charge of collecting information about him. What more evidence do we need of this TREASON?
This act alone of COWARDICE in the face of the ENEMY by a United States Commander-In-Chief is enough for a charge of Treason, Desertion of our country, or at the very least of High Crimes and Misdemeanors, in that our Commander-In-Chief turned coward at precisely the moment of our victory over the HEAD of the TERRORIST MISSION in the world, and murderer of more than 3,000 innocent American civilians, Osama Bin Laden.
If our own ELECTED OFFICIALS can betray us to this degree, is this not an exact duplicate of the situation in 1776 in which we found ourselves BETRAYED by King George of England? We fought the 1st REVOLUTIONARY WAR to form a new nation and free the American People from the suffocating grip of Tyranny and Betrayal from a land very far removed from our shores and ignorant of our potential. "No Taxation without Representation" and "Live Free or Die" were the battle cries of the First Great American Revolution. Today, we are even more betrayed by President George, even more tyrannized and terrorized by President George than King George ever made possible. And, our battle cry today is the same, "No Taxation without Representation" and "Live Free or Die."
If our own Elected Officials no longer represent us, and in later chapters I prove to all my readers how they NO LONGER REPRESENT US, but big Business instead, then, we should NOT SUPPORT the kind of policies and laws that they are writing for us in Washington D.C. and it may be time to WRITE SOME OF OUR OWN.
From CHAPTER ONE
Under the EESA, the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, recently passed by Congress, OVER THE OBJECTIONS OF 90% OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, WHO CALLED, WROTE, EMAILED, TELEGRAMMED our Congress, the Bush Administration basically put a gun to all our heads and told us that if we didn't pass SOCIALISM into law for the First Time in American History, we would all lose our jobs, our livelihoods, our businesses, our homes and we would all be out on the streets in bread lines.
How did we all come to this? We must ask ourselves at this point in history. WE ALL AGREED through our CONGRESS to GIVE UP on Capitalism and Democracy and travel down the very dark and musty corridors of MORE Government Control and far less FREEDOM. IN AMERICA? How was this possible, that the President of the United States could FORCE US INTO THIS MESS?
LOOKING BACK NOW, we can see the STEPPING STONES to SOCIALISM so clearly if we just forget the idea that this was ALL AN ACCIDENT. WAKE UP AMERICA. THIS WAS NO ACCIDENT? THEY had it all planned out.
The corporate giants that had bribed the Republican and Democratic Senators and Congress the most over the years, as a result of the EESA, were given almost ONE TRILLION of YOUR DOLLARS to make up for the staggering losses they STOLE from our economy by all their greed and corruption. Instead of going to JAIL, these men and women who stole the American Economy were rewarded by our elected leaders. They USED FEAR to make us comply with this crazy scheme. The founding fathers of this great nation, the dead and the brave, are turning over in their graves, begging us, the living and the fearful to WAKE UP AND FIGHT this EVIL.
In the next chapter, we will tell you in great detail, how we can COUNTERMAND this political and economic RIP-OFF that will handicap us all far into the future, but in this chapter, it is more important you learn how to rescue yourself from this piracy and this rescue of the American Family will begin to rescue the country.
None of the other media outlets will tell you the TRUTH about our situation. They will not tell you the truth because they are AFRAID. They are afraid of our own government. The Truth is our own Government, the people you and I elected to the highest offices of responsibility in the entire world, screwed us and it was INTENTIONAL. They like to make out that somehow these people were all just idiots who made simple mistakes in guiding our nation and our economy. You will read here OVER AND OVER that this LONG LIST OF MISTAKES cannot add up to a long series of accidental mistakes. They add up to a CONSPIRACY AGAINST DEMOCRACY by our own citizens, and most of this conspiracy has to go down to the REPUBLICAN PARTY. I'm sorry to say this, but the evidence all points in this direction and it is evidence that is compiling upon itself over the last 50 years since Richard Nixon, the most EVIL PRESIDENT in our long history, a man who ordered his own citizens to be SHOT AT BY the NATIONAL GUARD.
President Bush told us that we HAD TO IMPOSE SOCIALISM on this country because WE WOULD ALL LOSE OUR JOBS and our BUSINESSES. This was his 2n MAJOR ATTACK on the TRUTH through the use of SCARE TACTICS. The FIRST TIME, he used this immoral tactic, he told us that we had to STOP LOOKING FOR OSAMA BIN LADEN, because "Osama Bin Laden was not important any longer." And, we had to DIVERT our troops to IRAQ because Saddam Hussein had NUCLEAR BOMBS and was preparing to use them on our cities. BUSH KNEW, without any doubt, and this truth will come out in future hearings, if we are brave enough to hold them, that SADDAM had no such weapons. THE United Nations Inspectors told him that, told the world that fact, over and over. At the very worst case scenario, he could have waited to send in more inspectors under the guard of US TROOPS before committing to war, but he knew that there were no NUKES in IRAQ due to the C.I.A. telling him that. BUT, in order to have his DISTRACTION away from OSAMA BIN LADEN, they forced the Director of the C.I.A. George Tenet to go along with their LIES. For that he was awarded the MEDAL of HONOR.
This medal and all related honors should be stripped from this man as soon as the next administration takes office. It is the first time in history that this country, or any country has awarded their highest honor to someone for LYING through their teeth.
NEXT, Bush kept us in IRAQ all these long years by claiming that we were now fighting against Al Quaida. That was another LIE, we are in Iraq, now fighting against religious CULTS, the Shia nd the Sunni's who SADDAM had completely under control. When we removed SADDAM, we uncorked the bottled up violence between these two RELIGIOUS FANATIC SECTS, and now we're in the middle of a CULT WAR. Al Quaida was left to continue conspiring, saving up their money and resources, in PAKISTAN to attack us again.
BUT Al Quaeda is smart enough to know that they don't need to attack us any more with leaders such as the Bush Administration in office, because they are ATTACKING AMERICA with far more accurate fire power than the terrorists in Al Quaida could ever hope to accomplish by our President's Treasonous move into IRAQ to SPENDING US INTO FINANCIAL RUIN.
This was not enough, however, to waste TRILLIONS in IRAQ, trying to bring "Democracy to Iraq", the Republican's new rallying cry, after it was discovered that there were in fact, no nukes in Iraq to worry about. No, this was not enough for Bush. His scheme to DESTROY DEMOCRACY was not working fast enough, so like the attacks on the World Trade Center itself, BUSH removed all the SECURITY CHECKS and BALANCES and let the WALL STREET GREED take over so much that they SOLD the WORLD a DEBT INSTRUMENT called CREDIT SWAPS total value of 50 to 60 TRILLION DOLLARS.
Was this an accident also? First THROWING TRILLIONS at IRAQ to try and destabilize our ECONOMY, not working fast enough for BUSH, so he then allows his CRONIES, the very same people who CONTRIBUTE to his ELECTION, to throw 60 TIMES as much money at something that ALLOWED THEM TO STEAL BILLIONS IN COMMISSIONS and pocket these illicit funds knowing that it had to collapse at some point in time.
There are even EMAILS of some Wall Street Insiders laughing and SCOFFING at us for being so completely stupid and foolish, saying things like, "We're really gonna fuck the American People." and "Boy, I'm sure glad we'll all be so stinking rich, when it all falls apart, but it won't matter to us, ha, ha, ha." And, even more scornful EMAILS calling the American People and the INVESTORS "SHEEP" meant to be SHORN. ALL of this will come out in PUBLIC HEARINGS, if we are ever brave enough to hold them.
No one else will tell you this because they are afraid of their own government. I'm afraid as well. You'd have to be an idiot not to be afraid of these evil people, but at my age, 62 years old, I no longer care what they do to me, at least not as much as what they are doing to my country. And, I cannot stand idly by while they steal this country and all the FREEDOM and LIBERTY that was paid for in so many millions of American young boys in all the wars. They will NOT and CAN NOT steal this country from my children without my making a stand. And, I hope uniting with others who feel the same way and who refuse to let this country go to Hell due to the greed and evil found in so few men.
They have done more damage to America than a Million OSAMA BIN LADENs. They did it with the aid of a few cronies in the REPUBLICAN PARTY. Make no mistake of that. AND, yes, they even got help from a few in the DEMOCRATIC PARTY. But, I refuse to accept that those in the Democratic Party were part of the Republican Conspiracy. Those who cooperated were DUPED into compliance, just as most Americans were duped into complying with this evil.
This BOOK contains the ONLY COMPLETE FORMULA for REVERSING this process of TREASON and returning America to its ONE TRUE PATH, the path of Freedom, Democracy and Truth. I know of no other way to REVERSE the effects of their TREASON and PREVENT this kind of TREASON from ever happening again. If any of my readers know of any better ways or can improve on what I have laid out here, I will welcome their recommendations, because one this is for sure. NO ONE can go it alone.
But, before, we know how to proceed, we have to know how we got here. So, first, we all need a quick history of how we got to where we are today.
From CHAPTER FIVE:
The Balance Sheet of our Government Corporation
So, let's get to the BOTTOM LINE. Itís all about the Balance Sheet, a snap shot of the financial health of any organization at any specific point in time. The Balance Sheet of any corporation is based in the long run on the Profits and Losses of that corporation over time. Later in this chapter, we will study the profit potential of the Corporation of the United States of America. For now, we must examine where we are Ė The Balance Sheet of our Country as of this date and time, as written, October of 2008.
When you think about the Value of the United States of America and the value of the individual shares in our great nation, we must now be prepared for the shock of our lives.
The net worth of our nation is right at around ZERO. Thatís right. If we take the thousands-years-old Accounting formula of:
Assets Ė Liabilities = Net Worth
We come up with the following sobering results.
For the purposes of this EVALUATION of how much weíre worth as a nation, first letís start totaling up our National Assets. All data is based on the data reported by the Federal Reserve, the National Association of Realtors, and Dun and Bradstreet as of Oct. 7, 2008. (In our current economic situation, it is safe to assume that these net asset values will decrease over the next few years and net liabilities will increase from this date.)
The Assets of this country are the sum total of all the CORPORATE WEALTH and all the PRIVATE WEALTH. The following Data is taken from the Federal Reserve, data from the National Association of Realtors and Dunn and Bradstreet.
At the moment, there are approximately 14 million corporations and small businesses headquartered in the United States. The average net worth of all the small businesses and corporations in this country is approximately, $425,000. Thatís just the average Net Worth of a corporation in the USA. Obviously many corporations are worth billions and many others are basically worthless, so the average is the sum total of all Net Worth on the Balance Sheets of all Corporations divided by the number of corporations and it comes to $925,000 and change. (This is calculated by taking the value of all Corporate Assets and then deducting all Corporate Debt.)
This is based on the actual BOOK VALUE of all business assets. We ignored such intangibles as Goodwill and Stock Values, since stock values are inflated at 20 to 40 times the Earnings of most publicly traded corporations. And, we rounded up.
Therefore, the Total Net Worth of all Public and Private Corporate assets is 9 Trillion, 950 Billion Dollars or letís just use the abbreviation of 5.96 Trillion and letís round up this time to 10 TRILLION DOLLARS, since we may be slightly under valuing things like corporate Real Estate holdings, foreign investment and so forth.
So, our ASSETS as a NATION are pegged at approximately TEN TRILLION DOLLARS in real BOOK VALUE, things that we can see and SPEND and confiscate in a Bankruptcy. This is the only real measure of value as any creditor will tell you. When a Bank Loans you money on your mortgage, they always send out an appraiser to look at your house and he makes his best estimate of what your house is worth if the bank had to take it from you in a foreclosure. Thatís the REAL VALUE of your home and that is what we must always base our values on when thinking in terms of SHAREHOLDERS VALUE.
Next, we must get a total value of all PRIVATE ASSETS, this would be the total of the value of all the Private Real Estate, your personal homes and investment homes, the sum total of all your savings accounts and all of your stock market portfolios, the value of your cars, furniture, clothing and jewelry in America.
There are approximately 100 Million Single Family Homes in America and the average value today, as we write this book is around $200,000. That makes the Total Value of all homes in America at approximately TWENTY TRILLION DOLLARS.
However over 50% of all the homes in America are mortgaged to almost their full value and in some cases such as foreclosure and defaulted mortgages, the owners owe more than the value of their homes. That means we can conservatively cut the TOTAL ASSET VALUE of all homes in America to around TEN TRILLION DOLLARS in Book Value.
Bank Accounts, Savings Accounts, Stock Retirement Funds of all individuals in America today total another Ten Trillion Dollars approximate and rounded up.
Total Loans Outstanding for personal consumer consumption such as cars, boats furniture, clothing, etc. is approximately 5 TRILLION DOLLARS and this was rounded down.
Therefore NET ASSET VALUE of all personal households, excluding their homes is around 5 Trillion Dollars as of the writing of this book.
So, now we have all our Data and can calculate by our formula the Net Worth of the United States if it were a corporation today.
Business Assets: 10 Trillion Dollars
Personal Assets: 5 Trillion Dollars
Net Present Value 1 Trillion (Rounded up from 940 Billion)
National Debt 10.3 Trillion Dollars
(This doesnít take into account the ONE TRILLION DOLLARS being spent this year to SUPPORT THE ECONOMY.)
Adjusted National Debt 11.3 Trillion Dollars
NET WORTH: (16 Trillion in Assets Ė 11.3 Trillion in National Debt.)
4.7 Trillion Dollars
Next, letís calculate the Value of our Shares as of Today:
First we must assume that most people in this country would be given at a minimum 10,000 Shares of Stock in America if Stock were issued today. This would represent a
There are approximately 200 Million People in the United States over the age of 18. Therefore, the total number of shares outstanding should be set at:
2,000,000,000,000 (2 Trillion Shares Outstanding)
So, here's the BOTTOM LINE:
THIS NATION'S CURRENT VALUE PER SHARE: $2.10 (Do we call this mismanagement or theft?)
To put this value in perspective MacDonalds Corporation has a current value per share of $57 Per Share. Apple Computer Corporation has a value of around $100 per share and has been as low as $10 per share and as high as $200 Per Share. IBM shares are valued today at around $85 Per Share and has sold as high as $130 Per Share this year . Bank of America is selling at around $23.00 Per Share and has sold as high as $50 per share recently. Google, one of the most excellent and highly regarded corporations in the history of corporations is currently selling for approximately $350 Per Share but that is during one of the worst market downturns in history, OCT of 2008. Previously in the same year Google was selling for around $700 per share and many analysts believed it was headed for $1,000 Per Share. The price of gold is currently around $900 Per Ounce.
It would seem to the casual observer that shares in the United States of America should be selling at a MINIMUM at least as much as the shares of one of the finest High-Tech corporations in America, such as Google, or for at least the price of ONE OUNCE of GOLD. However, this price of $2,10 per share illustrates just how badly our government, our nation has been mis-managed over the last several decades by a bunch of scoundrels claiming to be "Fiscal Conservatives". In reality they are looters and pirates, and scam artists, nothing more, as you can see by the depressed value of our nation in terms of dollars.
THIS IS SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE. We can and we MUST do something about this. Are we going to wait until the value of America goes down to ZERO? What then? Will we be able to do anything about our economy at that point? We have a few SUGGESTIONS.
