Brad Daw, the representative for District 60 in Utah agreed to write a response to the situation America is now facing. So thank you Brad, for doing this for me:

Today we are witnessing the biggest robbery in the history of the human race. And, we are watching it occur in the bright light of day. All you have to do is pick up a current newspaper, tune in to the national news, or if you want to watch it in real time tune in to C-SPAN. The robbers are rationalizing their intended theft by giving nice names like "bailout" and "stimulus" but don't be fooled, this is a robbery.

The real tragedy of this robbery is that the victims being stolen from aren't able to defend themselves. By saddling ourselves with nearly a trillion dollars of new debt we are ensuring that our kids and grandkids will be paying for our excess for decades to come.

In addition to robbing future generations we are robbing ourselves of the freedom to conduct business in a free and open marketplace.

Many will say that we need this bailout to jump start the credit industry or we need this stimulus package to kick start the economy. The fact is that it was government interference that caused the problem in the first place. And continued government interference will only deepen the problem and lengthen the amount of time needed to correct it.

We are quickly moving from a free market economy to a centrally planned one. Instead of an economy driven by simple supply and demand we are moving to an economy where government will determine who succeeds and who fails. There will be little or no regard to efficiency and even need. The only factor that will be talked about is growth and stimulus. Innovation, competition, entrepreneurism, and all other positive hallmarks of a free market will become things of the past.

Fasten your seatbelts folks. It’s going to be a rough ride.

Thank you Candace for asking for this exceptional and to the point view of what is happening in Washington. Bread lines here we come!

How many of you are now seriously preparing for the drought that is about to come in the American economy? How long can you last without a job or the means to pay your bills? How many families can we cram into one house trying to take care of our own? People reality is staring us in the face. It's right there, but we need to open our eyes and see it for what it is. A fraud.

Our "new" working force cannot make ends meet now, how will they in the years to come? Those on Social Security and with disabilities cannot make it now, who will take them in if the family doesn't have the means to provide for them?

The prophets have spoken in scripture and in modern times to prepare. Joseph of Egypt heeded the warning Pharaoh was given in a dream from the Lord. Joseph was the reason that thousands were saved when the famine hit. Joseph was able to save his own family.

Are our storehouses full? Have we even begun to prepare? Do not procrastinate. Remember that it wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
