Voices Of Freedom & Liberty Get A New Home

Welcome to RobertBeadles.org - the website that gives you, the people, an independent political voice. Following Robert's withdrawal from the CD-11 campaign in California, we received a lot of requests for help in getting the voice of the people heard. So, we're turning this site over to you, the citizen journalist.

Just click the button above to join and speak your mind on any subject on the political radar... political candidates & representatives, policy, rights and liberties, the United States Constitution & Bill Of Rights, family values, healthcare, corruption, banking, government accountability, military... whatever you wish.

We ask that all citizen journalists agree to our terms and refrain from using profanity or hate speech. This site is moderated and each view or opinion expressed here is that of the author and not of this website's owner or staff. Personal responsibility is one of the principals on which our great country was founded, and so it is with this website. The bullhorn is yours - have your say now.

We Need Actions, Not Lofty Words

The President announced today a $15 billion spending reduction over the next three years. While I applaud the President for heading in the right direction, Congress has over $500 billion in stimulus money that it still plans to spend.  While discretionary spending has increased by more than 20% in the past two years, we should use the leftover stimulus money and pay down our debt which is at $1.3 trillion and scheduled to balloon to $6 trillion in the next few years.  In 2009 alone, overall spending increased by 18%, or $536 billion.

The President’s three-year freeze on ‘non-discretionary funding’ only affects 17% of the budget and the fiscal budget for 2010 (which runs from October 2010 – September 2011) will cut some programs, while increasing funding for others.

It is no secret that we are living in difficult economic times, but getting Americans back to work should be our number one priority.  I am glad the President has begun to see his party’s mistakes, but the outline he laid out for our nation needs to go further.  I believe you need to look at a person’s actions, not words.  We expect actions, not more excuses or lofty words.
