The Conservative Lady: Glenn Beck Series - Day 1: The New Republic: America's Future

Glenn Beck is doing a series this week that he asks us to watch and to share with everyone we know. I've decided to post "The One Thing" video from each day and ask everyone to watch his shows this week at 5 PM ET on the Fox News Channel.
Question With Boldness
Monday, August 24, 2009
By Glenn Beck
Am I hateful if I ask:
• Can we survive this debt? If yes, how? I still say that if we go broke instead of allowing our debt to bankrupt the world we will have a “bankruptcy” of sorts where the worldwide debt will be reconciled somehow and one way that this will happen is to go to a one world currency…it just seems logical to me…and I know I tend to be a little…tetched.  But think about it.  China is kind of like the dog that finally caught the car speeding down the road.  Does it have us?  Or do we have them?  It is a new form of Nuclear Deterrent.  Those of you as old or older than me know what I mean.  M.A.D – Mutually assured destruction. 
• Why the rush on health care reform, cap-and-trade?I think the generally accepted theory by us Clingers is to overwhelm the system to tear it down.
• Who is writing these bills?  Apollo and Soros group, Acorn,  and others like them
• Will Washington read and understand the bills?  No they will not but even though they will not read them they will still tell us that we should support them and act as if they know what is in there, telling us that we are wrong about what our lyin eyes and ears tell us.
• Why are you called "grassroots" if you are for, but "Astroturf" if you are against?
• Our unfunded liabilities for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid is close to $100 trillion. Is there any way to pay for these programs without bankrupting America? If the unfunded liability is $191,000 per CITIZEN then one way to begin to dig out is to tax the citizens we have more or another way would be to make more citizens…Amnesty anyone?
• We are in so much debt, why spend more borrowed money on cap-and-trade and health care programs before we stop the flow of red ink?
• The stimulus package funneled billions of dollars to ACORN: How does giving billions of dollars to ACORN stimulate the economy?
• If it was so important for Congress to pass the stimulus bill before they even had time to read it, why has only a fraction of the stimulus money been spent six months later?
• Former President Bush said he had to abandon free market principles in order to save them; how exactly does that work?
• Why won’t member of Congress read the bills before they vote on them? 
• Why are citizens mocked and laughed at when they ask their congressman to read the bills before they vote on them? …it is interesting that the very people who say that we are making up all kinds of lies and misinformation regarding what is in the bill, ADMIT they have not read the bill, and cannot understand it without several lawyers!  Then don’t tell me it is what we need, and we are wrong about what is in it.
• Was the "cash for clunkers" program meant to save the Earth or the economy? Did it accomplish either? it is just another way to bail out the car industry.  More importantly I saw on the news where dealers were double dipping.  Not taking the $4500 off of the price of the car but still collecting the rebate.
• How did Van Jones, a self-proclaimed communist, become a special adviser to the president?  FBI not vetting certain WH advisors.  WH successfully circumvented FBI background checks.
• Did President Obama know of Van Jones’ radical political beliefs when he named him special adviser?
• The Apollo Alliance claimed credit for writing the stimulus bill; why was this group allowed to write any portion of this bill? And Glenn also said that Van Jones had the idea for Cash for Clunkers but he called it Hoopty’s for Hybrids.
• If politicians aren’t writing the bills and aren’t reading the bills, do they have any idea what these 1,000-page plus bills actually impose on the American people?
• If the "public option" health care plan is so good, why won’t politicians agree to have that as their plan?
• If town hall meetings are intended for the politicians to learn what’s on our mind, why do they spend so much time talking instead of listening?
• Politicians are refusing to attend town hall meetings complaining, without evidence, that they are scripted. Does that mean we shouldn’t come out and vote for you since every campaign stop, baby kiss and speech you give is scripted?
• Why would you want to overwhelm the system?  To set up an Oligarchy, or maybe a Hegemony.
• Is using the economic crises to rush legislation through Congress what Rahm Emanuel meant when he talked about not letting a crisis go to waste?
• What are the president's "czars" paid? What is the budget for their staffs/offices?
