Frightening, and a good read.






"A State with No Republicans!"
   
 Very interesting...Note this. A US State with zero Republicans in office  - The State of Illinois. Think about this.
   
 Some interesting data on the 'state' of Illinois...  There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?  Body count: In the last six months, 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago.   221 killed in Iraq; AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.
   
 Here's the Chicago chain of command:  President: Barack Hussein Obama · Senator: Dick Durbin · House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. · Governor: Pat Quinn · House leader: Mike Madigan · Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike) · Mayor: Rohm Emanuel · The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats. · Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago. · Of course, they're all blaming each other. · Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! ·
   
 Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.  Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
   
 >> State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.  Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!


 >> Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
   
 This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us?
   
 >> George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.
   
 >> He was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is that's right, also in prison.
   
 >> And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago, because he is fighting to not be sent to...that's right, prison.
   
 The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.
     
   
 But you know what?
   
 As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.

 Don’t forget Detroit another good example.
   
 Some of you might find these data interesting. ALL SHOULD.
 There are actually two messages here.  The first is very interesting,
 but the second is absolutely astounding -- and explains a lot!
     
 A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.
   
 Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
   
              U.S.                      65%
              England                46%
              Canada                 42%
     
 Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
   
              U.S.                      93%
              England                15%
              Canada                 43%
   
 Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six
 months:   
              U.S.                      90%
              England                15%
              Canada                 43%
   
 Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
   
              U.S.                      77%
              England                40%
              Canada                 43%
   
 Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
   
              U.S.                       71
              England                 14
              Canada                  18
   
 Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":
   
              U.S.                     12%
              England                2%
              Canada                 6%
   
 And now for the last statistic:
   
             National Health Insurance?
   
              U.S.                     NO
              England               YES
              Canada                YES
   
             And check this last set of statistics!!
   
 The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.....
   
 You know what the private business sector is.  A real-life business, not a Government job.  Here are the percentages:
   
             T. Roosevelt................... 38%
             Taft.................................40%
             Wilson ........................... 52%
             Harding.......................... 49%
             Coolidge........................  48%
             Hoover ...........................42%
             F. Roosevelt................... 50%
             Truman...........................50%
             Eisenhower....................  57%
             Kennedy......................... 30%
             Johnson..........................47%
             Nixon..............................53%
             Ford................................42%
             Carter.............................32%
             Reagan...........................56%
             GH Bush.........................51%
             Clinton  ..........................39%
             GW Bush........................55%
             Obama............................. 8%
   
 This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration: only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!
   
 That's right!  Only eight percent -- the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!  And these people are trying to tell our big Corporations how to run their business?
   
 How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?  Or about jobs when he has never really had one?  And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?
   
 They've spent most of their time in academia, Government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers."  They should have been in an employment line.
   
 Pass this on because we'll NEVER see these facts in the mainstream media.

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

And now for the last statistic:
   
             National Health Insurance?
   
              U.S.                     NO
              England               YES
              Canada                YES
   

The purpose of Obamacare never was to improve health care.  Never.  The purpose is to reduce health care costs as a percentage of national GDP.

The only way to do that is to socialize healthcare and then to restrict supply to 'save money'.  This reduces the 'health care drag' as a percent of the economic costs.  While the quality goes away for all but the rich, this saves tremendous amounts of money for big business.  Protecting or increasing profits.

If it costs a few people their lives well, big business and politicians will still get the best care so it won't impact them and they don't really care about you.

That's what's going on...
