Letter To My Congressman Henry Cuellar

Letter To My Congressman PDF Version

Henry Cuellar

Sir, I am James Quillian, Author of the Fantasy Free Economics blog. I have a unique perspective on what is developing in the United States in terms of economics and politics.

Both the economy and our political system are going to collapse. This will probably happen prior to the 2022 elections. Since you are the congressman from my district, I am going to offer you some advice as to how to protect yourself and hold on to your seat in congress.

What I recommend to you is that you practice the art of not knowing, when damage to your constituents can no longer be denied.

Your support of the Affordable Care Act is known and well documented. The public is already starting to cite this act as a set of skimming operations designed to benefit all who lobbied for its passage. You must convince your constituents that you had no knowledge of, or any way to know about the actual sinister nature of this bill.

Constituents are coming to understand that the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is just another income transferring spending bill that has a completely negative impact of those who vote for you. You must convince people that you had no idea the bill was as bad as it is.

Folks are also starting to understand that all stimulus, monetary and fiscal simply constitute welfare for the rich. Of course, it must appear that you personally have had no way to know this is the case.

All of these postures require practicing the art of not knowing. Surely you know how to do this. All incumbents do. You have the reputation of being the brightest and most educated lawmaker in Washington. So, in your case, convincing your voters that you didn’t know things that are perfectly obvious, will not be that easy. But, being the shrewd politician you are, surely you are up the the task.

Let me add this. If you want to be re-elected, it is certainly necessary that you continue to tell constituents what they want to hear. If you don’t, they will vote you out of office. Understand though that “what they want to hear” is changing.

One thing I would suggest is that even if only temporary, it might be wise to present yourself as a delegate. Distrust of incumbents is growing. Those who suggest that they will follow the will of their constituents may do better for a while.  Many voters are beginning to understand that with respect to representation, they are outbid immediately once a representative is elected. Presenting yourself as a delegate may be your ticket in 2022 may  be your ticket.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
