Let me tell you the real reason Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid pushed through the biggest spending bill in history — without proper debate, without Republican input, and without any public scrutiny at all.
Simply, they are trying to turn the United States into a one-party country and to put the Republican Party out of business once and for all.
The massive appropriation called a stimulus — some $787 billion of your money — is really a political war chest for the Democrats.
They want to change the face of American politics forever, and they want to use your taxpayer money to do it.
They want to use billions from our treasury to reward their political friends — and have huge amounts of cash to dole out before the 2010 and 2012 elections.
Some people have wondered why, if the country is in dire need of emergency “stimulus,” most of the money appropriated by this law will not even be spent this year.
Instead, spending will go on for five to 10 years.
There is no mystery here, as the answer is simple: These billions in taxpayer funds will fund the Democratic political machine for many years to come.
Chicago Machine Takes Over Washington
You must remember — the media won't tell you this — that Barack Obama is a product of the corrupt political machine in Chicago headed by Mayor Richard Daley.
Chicago is run as a one-party city. The Democratic political machine and the government are one in the same.
Just like we saw recently in Congress, there is no real debate in Chicago. Deals are brokered in the back rooms among the ward leaders, the mayor and their cronies.
What the political machine decides, the public has to accept it. The city council serves simply as a rubber stamp — much the same way the Congress just acted for Obama.
And public money in Chicago is used to protect and serve the interests of the machine.
Obama — as I will reveal to you with the stimulus plan — is simply replicating the Chicago machine in Washington.
It is a frightening thought because our freedoms depend on a vibrant two-party system.
But that's what you believe, not what Obama and his crew believe.
Barack Obama and his Chicago gang, which includes his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, also a congressman from the Chicago machine, have a starkly different view.
They want a one-party system headed by a strong man.
We at The National Republican Trust PAC are deeply troubled not only by how much the stimulus plan spends but also the way it was implemented.
We just witnessed how the basic and open democratic process of our republic was flouted.
We fear that the actions by Obama and Congress that we just witnessed threaten the very foundation of our republic.
Consider that we have long believed America is the greatest democracy in the world.
Yet Congress passed the largest spending bill in its history — by essentially suspending vital democratic processes, including debate and public examination of the pending law.
We know that the Democrats, working late into the night, secretly agreed to a “compromise” bill among themselves — and then refused even to share it with Republicans or the public until just hours before the bill went to the floor for a vote.
The final stimulus bill was 1,079 pages long. We know Barack Obama never read the bill.
Many members of Congress have admitted not one senator or congressman even read the bill before they voted for it!
The Democrats say they suspended normal procedures because the country so desperately needed to avoid what Barack Obama said was an economic “catastrophe.”
The bill apparently was so urgent that the Democrats even excluded Republican leaders from any involvement in negotiations on it.
When, in our republic, does Congress simply vote on a bill when its members have no idea what it says?
And, how could congressional leaders like Pelosi and Reid, as well as President Obama, present a monumental law but not allow even one day of scrutiny by Congress, its staffs or the public?

Big Lie No. 1: The Emergency
They told us that the country is in such a dire situation that it was an emergency.
That was Big Lie No. 1: The bill was not an emergency measure.
This was a ruse. They falsely claimed it was an emergency bill to cut off all debate.
The lie about the urgency was made clear when President Obama, rather than immediately signing the bill, went on vacation to celebrate Valentine's Day with his wife in Chicago. [Amazingly he had been in Washington less than a month before he took his first vacation!]
In fact, Obama took almost four days to sign this “urgent” bill.
Big Lie No. 2: Immediate Stimulus
And then there is Big Lie No. 2: The bill offered immediate help to our ailing economy.
The truth: The bill does not offer significant, immediate stimulus.
Most of the stimulus money won't even be spent this year, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office!
And the CBO has warned that the bill actually will hurt long-term economic growth.
Infrastructure programs, including items such as $8 billion for a high-speed train between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, will take a decade or longer to complete — if environmentalists ever let the project begin.
Republican traitor Arlen Specter, who backed the stimulus bill, got more than $6 billion in the bill for “medical research” — another lulu that has nothing to do with immediate economic stimulus.
Big Lie No. 3: Bipartisan Support
Then there is Big Lie No. 3: This bill was a bipartisan effort to save the economy.
It was anything but.
Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham said bluntly: “If this is going to be bipartisanship, the country's screwed."
Indeed, every Republican in the House voted against the bill, along with six courageous Democratic congressmen.
In the Senate, almost every Republican opposed the bill except three liberals: Sens. Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins and Arlen Specter.
Obama promised he would change the “old politics” of Washington. Instead, he is playing hardball partisan Democratic politics of the Chicago type.
He has used the weakening economy as his Reichstag fire event to get to pass an incredible amount of money so he could funnel huge amounts of pork and political payoffs to his Democratic cronies and allies.
And now, he is even talking about a second stimulus program! Why not? Congress just passed his first bill without even reading it! What a joke . . .

The Real Purpose: Abolish the GOP
I have no doubt what the real purpose of the stimulus bill was.
Simply, it was to lay the ground work of the remaking of America's political system into a one-party system.
Yes, a one-party socialist state that destroyed countries like Mexico.
We have seen what one-party rule has done to cities like Cleveland, Detroit, other cities — and corrupt Chicago.
The media will never tell you this, but that's the real agenda behind the Obama stimulus bill.
This is why so little of the stimulus is spent now, but spread out over several years.
This means Obama and Democrats will have hundreds of billions to disburse to their supporters, creating a new party cadre that will help them win re-election in 2010 and 2012.
Don't believe me?
Well, we all know the fraud perpetrated by groups like ACORN to register Democratic voters.
In the run-up to the 2009 election, millions of new “voters” were registered – and it clearly helped elect Obama – and gave the Democrats big majorities in the House and Senate.
Their game plan for 2008 worked. Now they want to use public funds — our tax dollars — to pay for more of their political activities.
For example, the final stimulus bill gives $3 billion to groups like ACORN.
Consider that, in 2008, Obama claimed that he raised $750 million for his campaign. Compared with that amount, ACORN's $3 billion is staggering.
No doubt, these billions will help ACORN in its political work of “community organizing” — a euphemism for Democratic activitism.
We don't have billions — we need your help to fight — Go Here Now.
But it's not just ACORN who is getting “stimulus.”
The bulk of the Obama stimulus goes directly to the powerful government employee unions that helped get Obama elected and are the backbone, the shock troops, of the Democratic Party.
Amazingly, it's been estimated that half of the stimulus appropriation directly benefits government employee and service employees union that played key roles in Obama's election.
Second, the bill gives tens of billions to state and local governments to dole out to their cronies. This means there will be even less accountability by Congress.
And then there are massive payoffs to the special interests to the Democratic Party, with giveaways such as $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts, $300 million for new cars for government bureaucrats, $1.2 billion for “youth activities,” tens of billions for “green, environmental and energy programs” — they even include $3.7 billion to help “green” military bases and another $125 million to restore “abandoned mines.”
Shockingly, the bill creates 33 new government programs!
The stimulus money will give the Democrats the opportunity to become the dominant political party for the next generation.

Our Plan to Stop Obama
Despite the massive political payouts Obama, Reid and Pelosi are funneling to their allies across the country, they can still be stopped.
The polls show Americans want a two-party system. They don't want corrupt, Chicago-style politics in Washington.
They don't want their taxpayer funds used for political shenanigans and payoffs.
We at The National Republican Trust PAC want to expose the incredible rip-off the stimulus bill will be to the taxpayers.
If Americans knew that the bill would place an additional $9,400 in debt upon each household in America, they would be appalled.
If Americans knew the extent to which this bill is going for political payoffs to groups like ACORN, they would be outraged.
We know that Americans will wake up to what Congress has perpetrated on them with this stimulus.
But we also know we can't rely on the media to tell the facts.
This is why we want to keep up our media efforts to expose Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.
We now know they have a radical plan for the nation.
There are already calls among Democrats for a new Fairness Doctrine to close down talk radio and hosts like Rush, Hannity, Boortz, Beck, Savage and others.
The Democrats are already talking about legalizing 12 million illegals, making them citizens and voters overnight.
They know that, if they do this, they will instantly change the political landscape in the nation for a generation or more.
This is why your support for The National Republican Trust PAC is critical — Go Here Now.
This is why we urgently have launched a media campaign in exposing Sen. Specter in Pennsylvania and Sens. Snowe and Collins in Maine. We want their constituents to know exactly how their senators voted against the public's best interests.
We also have targeted Democratic senators like Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas.
We are doing this because we know that Obama is passing sweeping legislation, and that we need to put these senators and congressmen on notice: If they vote for Obama's plan, they will pay a heave price back home among their voters.
We at The National Republican Trust PAC have already played a critical role. We were a key factor in Sen. Saxby Chambliss' landslide victory in the special Senate run-off in Georgia.
CNN has called us one of the most “powerful” political action committees in the nation.
Dick Morris, the Fox News analyst, has called The National Republican Trust PAC the most important political force in the nation. He says we are now doing the work of the Republican Party.
But our success depends on people like you.
We don't have fat-cat donors and corporate sponsors.
We depend on Americans like you who care about this country and who want us to keep fighting.
Your donations help us not only to fight but also to prepare for the coming major battles ahead with Obama, Pelosi and Reid.
We need your support today, please donate — Go Here Now.
Thank you and God bless you.
Yours for America,
Scott Wheeler Executive Director
P.S. As the full details of the stimulus come to light, the American people will be shocked, and many of the backers will regret their votes for this shameful bill. Our job is to expose those that voted for the bill. If we do so, it is doubtful Obama will have the votes in the Senate to pass more of his radical agenda. But we need your support to stop him. It's urgent you help us today, please do so — Go Here Now.
