The Manufacturing Decline Is Due To Malgovernance-By Harsha Sankar

Dear Citizen, October 2010

Is America in decline? The entire society, leave alone US government,is drowning in debt. America is being hammered in the world trade arena as every single month large numbers of
factories,jobs, and wealth permanently leave American soil. The following are supporting facts.

1.In 2000, USA was ranked number one in average wealth per adult. In 2010, USA is seventh.

2. USA has lost approximately 42,400 factories and 32 percent of manufacturing jobs since 2000. In 1959, manufacturing represented 28 percent of economic output. In 2008, it represented 11.5 percent.

3. Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

4. In 1980, the United States imported 37 percent of its oil. Now its 60 percent.

5.America's trade deficit with China increased 300 percent in last ten years,which could cause eventually the loss a million jobs this year alone.Half a trillion yearly leave America due to trade deficit.

6. 15 year olds do not rank in the top half of all advanced nations in math or science literacy.

7. The United States has the third worst poverty rate among the advanced nations.

Less government,respect for property and financial rights, and a relatively stable and consistent legal environment allowed America to become the wealthiest nation on earth. Yet malgovernance demonstrates hostility for free markets, private property, and the rule
of law. Capital formation, entrepreneurship, credit, and wealth accumulation are now uniformly discouraged.

First and foremost, the role of government in business should be limited to resolving contractual disputes in a cost-effective,timely, and uniform manner. Yet in today's world private contracts are not reliably enforced and private property is not secure.The predictable result is widespread poverty and misery.

Intel CEO Paul Otellini stated it costs $1 billion more per factory for Intel to build, equip, and operate a semiconductor manufacturing facility in the United States.This is obviously due to
the high costs of malgovernance. Yet Americans continue to vote for attorneys as politicians. It is simply the case of not seeing the forest because the trees block visibility.

Tweetle-dum vs.Tweetle-dee is not the answer. A myriad of rules,regulations, and economic incentives keep grassroots Americans from vying for office. This must change.

Americans Foot The Bill For Environmental Lobbyism At The Pump-A Harsha Sankar Letter

Dear Citizen, October 2010

The big lobbyists-for-hire now all share identical characteristics and interests. They have truly become one-stop shopping for all political influence needs.

There is no bigger testament to this than environmentalist lobbyists. One way Americans foot the bill is at the pump. For decades, the US has been prohibited from drilling for oil containing billions of barrels of oil. Yet China, Cuba, Canada, and others continue to drill from those same places, such as oil fields fifty miles from Key West, Florida. ANWR, in Alaska, has estimated capacity of a million barrels a day. However, it is barred from development.

According to Minerals Management Service and Bureau Of Land Management has 139 billion barrels of recoverable oil. Of the 279 million acres of federal land with "potential oil and natural gas resources",60 percent is off limits. 23 percent is open to restrictive leases. The remainder is open to oil drilling on the same terms as private land.

EPA’s convoluted rules, such as mandating the production and sale of fifteen unique ‘boutique’ fuel blends throughout the nation, has stretched U.S. refinery capacity too thin. Slightest refinery issues cause severe

supply difficulties and price hikes.

Not one refinery has been built since 1976. Not one nuclear plant has been built in a decade. All development is frozen due to higher taxes and to interpretive regulations. As world oil demand grows exponentially, Americans should rely much less on foreign oil sources.

Lobbying law firms must be limited. Ban all judicial, legislative, and executive lobbyists from office.

Tidbits-An Outline Of The Culture Of Graft-A Harsha Sankar Letter

Dear Citizen, October 2010

Rather than writing a long article that can challenge and perhaps drain the attention span, the following are tidbits of data and are meaningful summaries. As a future politician who feels he is destined to make on impact, I have been involved in experiments, such as Facebook, on finding the most effective manner to express my viewpoints.

The Clintons have a net worth of over 50 million USD’s. Remarkable considering that in 2001 their net worth was zero. They have just spent $5 million on their daughter’s wedding. Just how are these attorney-politicians acquiring this money?

Clinton’s son-in-law get a high paying job with bankster supreme GoldmanSachs. Bush’s family’s jobs in controlled media and with the banks, S&L and with foreign lobbyists is proof that Republican/Democrat matter not. The Carlyle Group, which both President Bushes belong too, is a totally assetless company that offer no products for sale. Yet they are in lucrative world of manipulating armament deals. This obviously violates not just American sovereignty, but that of other nations.

Michelle Obama has a royal entourage costing tens of millions.The Clintons, Palin,
Cheney, Gore, and even Laura Bush all get up front multi-million dollar book deals from an increasingly controlled book industry.

Obviously this graft is not limited to just White House occupants. It is across the
board in federal and even state governments. Many millions are dished out to those who participate in orchestrated speaking tours.

All this is nothing short of bribery and money laundering. There is no wealth or
value creation by these activities. All this comes at the expense of average Americans, who continue to get squeezed out of education and career options. They work hard just to provide for themselves food, healthcare, transportation, and shelter.

As a few select can do they as they please, many Americans face harassment. The
threat of house forfeiture over petty ordinances has become common. Neighborhood watch programs and the War on Drugs has guaranteed police-state measures.

America is starting to resemble third-world status with second-class citizens. America
is starting to resemble Caribbean nations. In those nations, there is no manufacturing or real middle class. Many of its people work in resorts that offer products that none of them can afford to purchase. As Henry Ford cited, the people who make the car have to be able to buy the car. Yet who is the biggest employer in Bath County, Virginia? Homestead Resorts.THIS IS NOT NORMAL IN A FREE SOCIETY.

With high insurance premiums destroying social mobility, employment for many
has become indentured servitude.

Transfer of as much as $23.7 trillion to banks and financial institutions for the socialization of their gambling losses on illegal sub-prime mortgages and credit default swaps may take place. With some of this money, Chinese banks were bought, new Mexican factories were opened, and of course banks and factories in America were closed.

Hundred of billions are spent to acquire office. Yet citizens are facing more attempted
government seizures.

With attorneys in office, Americans are viewed as clients or as opposing parties. The
role of the legal system becomes all consuming. Americans are not supposed to be viewed as litigants in some vast lawsuits. Instead, Americans are citizens of a republic which is supposed to assure them significant freedom from laws, courts, and attorneys.

The preceding may be disjointed and may lack cohesion. However, it is informative.

Beware of those who use this phrase “We are attorneys. We are here to help.”

Very Truly Yours,

As The Oil Volcano Has Contaminated The Gulf, BAR Occupied Government Has Contaminated Society-A Harsha Sankar Letter

Dear Citizen, August 2010

As the Deepwater Horizon disaster has contaminated the Gulf, BAR Occupied Government has contaminated government and society.

A few weeks after the April 20th Oil disaster, attorneys across the nation have filed nearly 300 lawsuits against so many parties for damages. Cases have even been filed on behalf of the oil coated fish and birds.

While birds and fish cannot directly benefit for dollar damages, American people know who will and can. Will those aboard the rig and will those whose livelihoods are threatened by the slick receive immediate compensation for all economic losses?

The Exxon Valdez matter took 20 years to resolve. People received five to ten percent of they lost. Is there any idea on who received the lion share of settlement? 37 of the 64 federal judges in districts where most lawsuits are pending have ties to energy related industries. It is apparent that there will be much “home cooking” during the proceedings.

What is the role of law firms that do the lobbying in this environmental debacle?

Since January 2008, British Petroleum lobbyists have spent $30 million to manipulate legislation. BP, in the first quarter of 2010, hired at least 27 lobbyists who worked in congress or the executive branch. The revolving door of public service to private enrichment is spinning so fast, BP pockets these parasites like “nickels and dimes”. It is reported that good government officials are hard pressed to name a comparable organization with as much clout as BP.

BP has in-house lobbyists and recently hired seven prominent law firms to lobby its legislative interests. BP just spent nearly four million dollars this quarter alone.

One lobbying firm, the Podesta group, will use its unmatched, undemocratic, and corrupt power to prevent any BP official from serving jail time.

The oil company’s cadre of hired guns will have a captive audience with their former colleagues. Just take a look at the corrupt conflicts of interest that surround Mineral Management Service (MMS), which supposedly oversees offshore drilling.

MMS receives billions of dollars a year in royalties from the industries it is supposed to regulate. Employees of MMS and Big Oil constantly switch sides.

A new report questions whether MMS inspectors failed to enforce safety and other standards on the drillings. MMS rig inspectors had even allowed industry representatives to write reports in pencil, with inspectors writing them over in ink.

Why did not MMS require that Big Oil install secondary blowout presenters on oil rigs, as other countries have? The fact that oil rig inspectors receive gifts from oil companies is one reason. Also the fact that President Obama was the top recipient of BP campaign contributions over the past 20 years is another.

It is obvious that the system created by the treasonous and non-democratic elements of government has caught grassroots America in a political and economic vise.

Nothing is black and white anymore. All are shades of gray. This overlapping and co-mingling of functions of the governmental and legal systems has lead to social upheaval.

Masses of economically deprived, socially dislocated, and politically disenfranchised people are not good for the nation.

The only starting-point remedy to stop all these predators from continuing to run the system for their own parochial benefit is to ban attorneys from office, to stop the judiciary from being controlled by a private elitist and internationally affiliated group, and to limit the legal profession to its proper role. There will be the peace between citizens and their government.

Same hands governance only breeds patronage, heavy handedness, selective enforcement,
and lack of discipline.Certainly compensation and re-education opportunities can be
offered to those who step aside and vacate from their office and from their capacity as attorneys.

After all, Americans are not communists.

Patronage Impoverishes America Via Corrupt Conflicts Of Interest-A Harsha Sankar Letter

Dear Citizen, September 2010

The one thing that is plunging Americans into third world status is the constant corrupt conflicts of interests that continue due to attorneys in office.

Governor McDonnell awards fellow attorney(John Rocovich) and significant campaign contributor($47000.00) with positions on a educational regulatory agency and also on an university board that also funds an institution in which he chairs.

As free enterprise is dying,it is common for tax attorneys to utilize client estate's resources to fund non-profits that award them influence.In dictatorial society,tyranny is often confused with "necessary service". In an interview years ago,Fidel Castro refused to step down.He genuinely believed his abdication from current positions would be perceived as treasonous.These cronyistic and sociopathic elitist features apply to America now. The more power brokers attach themselves to institutions, without risk or stake and without value orwealth creation, the more importance they attach to themselves.

This patronage results in the following. Unemployment is at shockingly high levels.Foreclosures and personal bankruptcies set new all-time records. Businesses are being shut down constantly, 40 million Americans are on food stamps, and the U.S. government piles up debt at blinding speed.

Ending graft means establishing checks and balances. Attorneys should have no role in government.
