(1888PressRelease) Lobbying (also Lobby) sounds illegal to me and others. Corporations DO NOT vote so how is it they hire most of the lobbyist? Just because they have the means and money to hire lobbyist they then have the means to induce politicians to be in their favor for upcoming laws and regulations. When many times these purposed laws and regulations are in direct contradiction to the common good. Paul Chehad.
The professional politicians in Washington DC are out of touch with America and average American. It's time WE take back America for American's. They will not be happy until they send the last American job to China and through CAP & TRADE they also plan to raise your GAS TAXES by 15% to 25% they plan on raising your home & small business electrical bill to 25% and to raise your home & small business heating gas by 25%. Can YOU afford a 50% increase in your home energy bill? Can you afford to pay the extra for gas for your car?
IF NOT, it's time to TAKE BACK AMERICA. We don't care if they are a Democrate, Republican, we will support anyone who agrees with our ideals and goals. America for American's - Everyone Else Can Go Home!
Lobbying (also Lobby) is suppose to be illegal for foreign governments to hire lobbyist and try to influence our politicians. This law needs to be strengthened with stiffer penalties. Foreign governments have NO business in our domestic affairs period. ANY politician who takes any form of contributions from foreign governments or entities should go to jail for a LONG time and be permanently banned from any politics or holding any government office, wither one that is voted/elected or appointed. Likewise any lobbyist who represents a foreign government or entity should also go to jail for a long, long time.
Lobbying (also Lobby) sounds illegal to me and others. Corporations DO NOT vote so how is it they hire most of the lobbyist? Just because they have the means and money to hire lobbyist they then have the means to induce politicians to be in their favor for upcoming laws and regulations. When many times these purposed laws and regulations are in direct contradiction to the common good. It is the act of attempting to influence decisions made by officials in the government by individuals, other legislators or government actors, constituents, or advocacy groups.
There is one simple reason why Congress can't get up the gumption to deal with lobbying. It is self-interested, and lobbyists serve that self-interest.
The only way to deal with corporate lobbying is to outlaw it, and the only way we can do that is if the citizens of each state engage in anti-lobbyist referendums, preventing their local corporations from setting up shop in Washington.
Until then, we get the government we deserve: by the corporations, for the corporations and of the corporations, who rule over us like medieval monarchs.
Say an auto parts store had a "lobbyist" who talked or bribed the owner into buying his parts exclusively and promised all kinds of kick backs, bribes gifts of cash and goods etc. The local District Attorneys office would jump all over this. Unfair trade practices, the kick backs, bribes not to mention the cash and gifts to influence the business owner. Unfair competition etc. etc…
Then why is it OK for politicians to accept, cash, gifts, goods etc. from lobbyist? Everyone seems to think there is nothing wrong with this and everyone seems to think this is business as usual.
I DON'T THINK SO.
Lets start a crusade to end the powerful lobbyist movement in State & Federal government and return control back to the people (who do vote by the way).
IF you are a politician and this offends you, I am sorry for you. But in all honesty you have to ask yourself just who do you represent, the people or your special interests who hired the lobbyist to influence you? Unfortunately when you are in this boat (working for special interests/lobbyists), you are NOT working for the people and you DO NOT have their best interest at heart, no matter what you say.
I hope you see this my way and join me. Contact your local state representatives and your federal representatives and send them this message: If you take special interest money we will vote you out or you can join us and help make lobbying illegal as it should be. You can send this as an Email or print it out with your name and address and mail a copy to your representatives. They are always saying how they want to hear from you and to voice your opinion, now's the time to let it be heard. With hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars changing hands in back room deals this is the only way we can keep everyone honest.
God bless America
Paul Chehade's biography
Paul Chehade was born in Wilmington, Delaware on October 26, 1965. He is a political truth and righteous seeker, successful business entrepreneur, humanitarian rights activist and ideologist, polyglot, musician, writer; was and has sophisticated his character by a plan of virtues, which he believes in and continues to practice in order to develop his uprightness which it is the foundation for his solid moral.
Such moral is based on respect for the human customs and believes, knowledge, religious tendencies (as long as those do not hurt society but do provide love, brotherhood and progress in peace and harmony) regardless of color, race and culture.
His character is based on Temperance, Discipline, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Tranquility, Chastity, and Humbleness.
Paul Chehade is a believer of the practical and democratic values of prudence, hard work, education, honesty, spiritual development, self-governing institutions and opposes to authoritarianism both political and religious based on scientific and tolerant values of the Enlightenment.
Paul Chehade supported the idea of basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled. Human rights include civil and political rights, such as the right to life and liberty, freedom of expression, and equality before the law; and social, cultural and economic rights, including the right to participate in culture, the right to food, the right to work, and the right to education and health.
Paul Chehade is the Chairman of the Board of a diversity group of corporations since 1999, which are dedicated totally to serve the ill-timed humans, regardless of a person's religion, race, ethnicity, or gender, as a demonstration of God's unconditional love for all people, helping communities worldwide.
Paul Chehade works for the less fortunate true Solidary Foundation for more than 10 years as a volunteer.
Values & Principles:
Paul Chehade was born in a Catholic family. Based on the principles expressed in the Bible, which Paul Chehade has been raised with; profound values and the riches of his Christian traditions lead him to base his desire to serve the community in neighborly love as preached by Jesus Christ..
What is required is to return to the old fashion principles on morality, ethics based on respect to all living creature.
Being ethical is not the same as doing "whatever society accepts." Being ethical is to follow the rules that respect the human right and integrity.
An entire society can become ethically corrupt. Discrimination is a good example of a morally corrupt society. A reform to our values back to basics will provide the standards to a moral and righteous behavior.
Education is an avenue. Religious principles of love are also valid. God must prevail in our schools our daily life and our families. The family is the basis of our society and the future of our children therefore of our nation. God Bless America.
Ethical Junction Making Choices Easy.
