Letter: Belittlers belittling the belittled

As I see it, our government, as our belittler, is constantly belittling the people. In other words, our government is determined to totally control our lives, "to make us small" as the dictionary suggests. Think about it. One of my dictionaries places emphasis on synonyms and antonyms. The dictionary lists a large number of synonyms and a few antonyms.

In other words, our government is putting down rather than building up the people. Our government is dispraising rather than praising the people. As the government gets bigger, our government "makes small" the people as the dictionary defines the word, belittle. As I see it, I could get carried away using the synonyms and antonyms. For example, I could say that as our government upgrades its agenda, it downgrades the people.

As I see it, people need to realize what our government is doing and how it is affecting our lives. How our government has reinterpreted the Constitution to their advantage and how the Supreme Court has allowed our government to reinterpret our Constitution.

The elite that controls the governments use SAFETY, HEALTH, and CLIMATE to control you. They will repeat the same lie until you will start to believing in it and until it will become your religion. It is so amazing global warming always comes up at summer time and when winter comes it is called climate change.

As I see it, UNITED was used as the title for this great nation because that is the only way to contain PEOPLE power. It's also another term for UNION.

UNITED we STAND. Divided we FALL.

So just who is out there that would want to see WE the People FALL? Not the UNITED UNION.

Who do YOU think would rather have all that power instead of our elected representatives?

It easy to see who would love to steal that from us --- FOREIGN-LED MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATIONS want that control --- they do this by REMOVING our UNITED people power, thus eliminating our power to control THEM.

NO REGULATION ON BUSINESS means we can choke on our pollution we can allow foreign governments to buy up all our products we can watch our favorite small, family owned businesses get crushed under the heavy hand of massive monopolies. Good heavens people, wake up. It's not too late.

Well, I shouldn't be too surprised at what the Supreme Court has allowed the Government to get away with. They're so carefully vetted even before being nominated to sit. Every case they ever decided being subject to microscopic examination.
A seat on the Supreme Court is the pinnacle of any jurist's career. One would expect there to be varying levels of gratitude extant. After all, they are just human.

Here's interesting information on how the government (namely obama) and Kathleen Sebelius have lied to us about Obamacare enrollment.

They are putting out figures that 4 million have signed up. It has all been assessed, numbers run. Different outcome.

Despite their obvious lies, when all is said and done, only 472,000 are PREVIOUSLY UNINSURED EXCHANGE ENROLLEES AS OF LAST MONTH.

McKinsey & Company ran a survey inquiring why those who didn't sign up avoided doing so.

Out of five possible reasons for failure to enroll, 50% chose "I could not afford to pay the premium".

In second place, 31% said the technical difficulties of enrolling were too much for them. Couldn't effectively shop, couldn't complete the purchase, couldn't set up an account.

Obamacare is a complete and utter fraud buttressed by a Harvard survey lie they used that said 45,000 people die each year for lack of insurance and it is a national disgrace to let that go on. Except, IT WASN'T GOING ON AT ALL. That survey has been completely debunked.

Vegas Union workers are outraged for cooks, dishwashers, maids obamacare insurance is often double what they were paying. Harry Reid said the stories were all lies. HARDLY!!
