Insanity or covert motive?

November 30, 2018
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

To the editor:

According to the dictionary the definition of insanity is a mental illness, mental disorder, derangement, psychopathy, dementia, amentia, lunacy, psychosis, alienation, neurosis, psychoneurosis, phobia, mania, craziness, aberration, delusion, delirium, retardation, etc., etc. Quite a selection of abnormal behavioral items.

The same dictionary defines covert as a secret, clandestine, furtive, or secret motive.

Now I ask you. Why would any sane individual spend $65,000,000 of his own personal money in addition to millions paid out by the Grand Old Party, to be elected to a position in the USA Senate that pays a mere $174,000 salary per year??? What is wrong with this picture? Needless to say, I am extremely happy to announce that he is not managing my money, at least not directly.

We have a political system that will, no doubt, eventually cause the USA to crash and burn. We need to wake up and evaluate the entire political picture. Let's also not forget that these same politicians are spending money at an alarming rate that is increasing our national debt at the rate of $45,486.00 per second, 24/7/365 days per year. As of Nov. 15, our national debt was $21,699,457,914,900. Nearly $22 trillion dollars!!!!!

The public is holding $15.6 trillion in treasury notes of the debt and intragovernmental holdings equal $5.7 trillion. In the event you are interested, the intragovernmental holdings are the devious method invented by Congress that allows the Treasury Department to "borrow" all excess funds collected by the government that is intended to be collected and reserved until such time they are required to be used for Social Security, Medicare, pensions, etc., These funds are replaced with a treasury note issued for collateral. In other words, the government is putting a mortgage on our futures. "Borrowing" Treasury securities held in accounts administrated by the federal government, such as the Social Security Trust Fund. That is why the Social Security fund is depleted. They "borrowed" the money and spent it on various and sundry items of their choosing. This is a horrendous method of fiscal mismanagement. I urge all of you to write and call your congressional representatives regularly and register your objections to their irresponsible behavior and to always vote for change and improvement. They are all listed in your telephone books and online.
