Write in Delia Lopez Our government is broken. It is not working. Unemployment is actually at over 11% if you count the discouraged workers. Those people that have been unemployed for a long time. While unemployment is climbing, lemonade stands and coffee shops are being shut down. EPA regulations on carbon have caused the shut down of three refineries in the last six months. Two of those were Sunoco refineries that used to supply 50% of the gas, diesel and jet fuel for the east coast of our nation. All of those workers are now unemployed. The lessening of supply is also causing an increase in the cost of gas, diesel and jet fuel. Federal agents are targeting people for buying or selling raw milk. Gibson Guitar is shut down by Federal agents over an imported wood. Why is our government adding to the already far too long, lines of the unemployed? We are broke. In part because of a huge decrease in tax revenues, people that are not working pay less income tax, much less. Yet our congressmen continue spending our money on things most American people would not approve of. While they argue over a small amount to continue unemployment to people in this nation, they send trillions overseas. Congress has not managed to pass a budget in three years. I for one am sick of this partisan squabbling. They are acting like spoiled children and should be treated as such, given a paddling and sent home. We need to put people into Congress that will work for the American people. We created this government to secure our rights. We have allowed it to grow into an overbearing monster from whom we must get permission to catch a fish. We have created a two party system that would have shamed our founders. They warned us not to allow it to happen. We have allowed this to happen. As long as congressmen continue to please the lobbyists so they get massive campaign war chests they can do what ever they want and we vote for them. They parade lies on TV with slick advertising, or they play for our team. “I am a Democrat so I vote for the Democrat” or “I am Republican so that is how I vote”. Our system of government was unique different from any other in the world because the people were in charge and they were to control the government. Government was to be the servant of the people. Ensuring peoples rights were secure and reining in criminal activities. Our government is now stamping the Constitution and the rights of the people. Our government is now committing criminal acts from the “fast and Furious” mess, murdering hundreds of people. Passing out tax dollars stolen from American workers to banks and companies with close ties to the political class. Our government is now one of the absolute worst for spying on its citizens, the worst for having people in jails, one of the worst for abusing peaceful protestors and persecuting government whistle blowers that expose corruption. Anywhere you look in the massive government bureaucracy you find huge amounts of corruption and waste. Those with political connections get away with massive theft and murder. While regular people are beaten and jailed for filming police officers. We the people must regain control of our out of control government. When people vote repeatedly against things and the politicians ignore the will of the people, it is time for them to be replaced. When they are proud of managing to get things done in opposition to the will of the people, they should be removed from office. While they amass millions in personal wealth while those they are supposed to work for are going broke. They focus on their own pet projects instead of what the people they work for need. It is time they are fired. Earl Blumenauer has ignored those he works for, lined his pockets and focused on new federal regulations on captive primates, while we are losing jobs, homes everything. If you want someone in office that is not corrupted and will work for the people and to create an environment where the people are in control. Vote for Delia Lopez, if you are a Democrat please write in Delia Lopez on your democratic primary ballot and ask your friends to as well. It is time we said enough, You're Fired. We can not afford your globalist agenda, America first. We must take care of our people. In any crisis you must take care of yourself first. If we fall who will step in to “save” us?

Can we end the corruption without violence? As many of you know my problem with our government is the corruption. As Eliot Spitzer said everything Wall Street was doing was illegal but no one was prosecuting them. When he did he was arrested for being a “John” visiting a prostitute. He is the only “John” I can think of prosecuted in recent history. It was not deregulation that caused the mortgage mess it was fraud, it was illegal. After the Savings and Loan mess over 1,000 people were brought up on charges many went to jail. Jon Corzine just stole 1.6 Billion dollars. He took money out of customers segregated accounts. Like having a bank account with your broker this is supposed to be safe. I have read it was supposed to be safer than a bank. The bankruptcy was filed to protect JP Morgan and other politically connected entities. Illegally of course. Had the proper bankruptcy type been filed the customers would have been first in line to get their money back. Career politicians are somehow becoming incredibly wealthy. We must work together to remove them from office. We must work together to eliminate the corruption and return control of our government to the people. Please write in James Buchal for Attorney General and Thomas Cox for State Treasurer on both Republican and Democratic primary ballots. Please write Delia Lopez in for congress in CD#3 against Earl Blumenauer on Democratic primary ballots. And, Suzanne Gallagher, who has independently mounted her own write in candidacy for the Republican nomination for Senate District 18. We need people that will focus on creating the environment where small businesses can be started and thrive. We need jobs. Not more light rail, not more laws on pet monkeys. We need jobs. My problem with Social Security is that the politicians have their hands in it. If peoples' money had actually been put into a “trust fund” and managed people would be receiving considerably more for what they have paid in. Look at the different retirement accounts set up in lieu of Social Security before they stopped letting people opt out. The politicians stole the SS Trust fund that is how they “balanced” the budget. Lets see if I could take money from my customers accounts I wouldn't have financial challenges. So the politicians robbed us and took our money from SS. No one is in jail. Bankers committed massive fraud in the housing collapse and we reward them with more money. They even received bonuses. Same with MF Global they robbed their clients, filed the wrong bankruptcy and received bonuses. Are you seeing a pattern here? Occupy Wall Street is missing a big point in calling for more government regulations. The government is corrupt. The problems our State and the US is dealing with would be solved with two big fixes. End corruption and create more jobs. Cut the corruption and the spending rate goes down, way down. Create good paying jobs and more money is paid in income taxes. We must work together to force our government to follow the law. Our nations leaders are becoming increasingly corrupt and violating one law after another. In his comprehensive annals of the reigns of Tiberius and Nero, Roman historian Tacitus wrote, "corruptissima re publica plurimae leges." This is most often mistranslated as "the more corrupt a society, the more numerous its laws." In truth, Tacitus was referring to Rome's history, and a more accurate translation is "laws were most numerous when the commonwealth was most corrupt." Future historians will likely look back and say the same thing about our society. Except that we're not talking about laws. We're talking about the 'rules' of autonomous enforcement agencies that have extensive (and growing) police powers. A better quote comes from a 1969 speech from William T. Gossett, then president of the American Bar Association: "The rule of law can be wiped out in one misguided, however well-intentioned generation. And if that should happen, it could take a century of striving and ordeal to restore it, and then only at the cost of the lives of many good men and women." We the people need to regain control. Please forward this to everyone on your address list. Thank You, Delia Lopez Delia@dlopezforcongress.com 503-954-4080 Call me if you have questions, leave a message I will call you back.
