Happy Thanksgiving, America!

November 24, 2010 by  

Happy Thanksgiving, America!

Tomorrow is perhaps America’s most important holiday, and it comes amidst the most positive change that has happened in a generation.

The Tea Party led the GOP to victory and it has given new hope to America. Furthermore, it is the Tea Party that has inspired many to challenge a leftist President and overthrow a liberal House of Representatives. It is the Tea Party that is setting a new course; one based on the blueprints that built this great nation.

Change has come quickly. Before the midterm election, it seemed many were giving up hope. And while the Tea Party does not yet have a unified agenda, its candidates have pushed for a balanced budget, the eventual elimination of the Federal debt and will try to repeal President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform law.

The Tea Party has instilled new passion and direction in the conservative movement, and it has done so from the bottom up. The ideas and inspiration from the Tea Party come mostly from ordinary people that Americans can understand, not intellectuals like William F. Buckley, Jr.

Liberty Still Thrives Inside America
Keep in mind that I’m a dyed-in-the-wool realist. My wife tells me that I see the glass half empty, and years ago Personal Liberty Digest co-columnist Chip Wood called me Calamity John.

But I am far more optimistic this Thanksgiving than I have been in years past. The recent election has demonstrated that libertarian ideals are still alive.

That is a relief, because America may be the only nation that still has a conservative voice. It certainly has fallen silent in Canada.

Two summers ago my wife and I traveled to Ottawa, Ontario to our eldest son’s wedding. Our daughter-in-law’s parents had some friends that were active in Canada’s Progressive Conservative (PC) Party. At the wedding rehearsal I spoke politics with a few of them. I had spent much of the previous 20 years living in Spokane, Wash., and was woefully ignorant of the political climate that had changed in Canada. I was shocked at how these “Conservatives” not only liked President Barack Obama but were also inspired by his policies regarding bailout and healthcare bills.

They were members of the political party that had helped elect John Diefenbaker, one of Canada’s great Conservatives, just 50 years earlier. Yet as Canadian Conservatives they believed in the ideology of Ted Kennedy rather than the ideals of Ronald Reagan.

Back when Diefenbaker was Prime Minister there were two principals: the Liberal Party and the PC Party. Today there are three other major Canadian political parties at the national level: the Le Bloc Québécois, the New Democratic and the Green Party. The last two are on the far Left.

And despite the success of the Tea Party, there is no conservative movement like it in Canada. It is an interesting distinction, writes Canada’s most influential newspaper, The Globe and Mail:

“Canada and the United States are remarkably similar countries — so similar, that no one else on earth can tell the two of us apart, unless this Austrian or that Sri Lankan has an ear so well attuned to English that she can distinguish Newfoundland from Missouri accents. Yet politically, we are solitudes…

“(Yet) for all our shared geography and history, Canadians are more Japanese than American. Or more German. Or Norwegian. We accommodate ourselves to the political reality we inhabit. Only the Americans are perpetually up in arms against the status quo. It makes for more unstable, more dysfunctional, but ultimately more democratic politics.”

For the past four decades Canada has moved further and further to the left; so far, in fact, that Canada seems devoid of citizens who even know what individual liberties are, let alone demand them.

Northern Sheep
Tom Flanagan is a United States-born, Calgary, Alberta academic, and was an adviser to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Flanagan has said he doesn’t think a group like the Tea Party will bloom north of the 49th Parallel because Canada’s political system — unlike the U.S. primary system — is not required by law to hold free and open nomination contests.

“You could have an insurgency here and there in Canada, but a wide uprising like we saw in the U.S. just isn’t possible here,” Flanagan told The National Post.

Others in Canada have pointed out that there is no Tea Party because Canada’s economy is so much better off. I can tell you that this is nonsense; that by most measures the U.S. has a higher standard of living and a better economic future than does Canada.

The real reason there is no Tea Party in Canada is that Canadians sheepishly accept what government dictates. Let me give you an example. When I was going to the University of Calgary in the 1970s, Ottawa instituted the unpopular metric system. Many Canadians complained when the provinces made all road signs metric. Yet the signs were erected and were soon accepted.

Around that time, Washington State was also putting up metric road signs. But those signs didn’t catch on. That was because drivers were tearing them down.

Perhaps the differences between Canada and the U.S. are not surprising; not when you consider the United States revolted against King George III, while those further north were happy to be co-opted by the British Empire.

Yet there was a time when conservatism had a strong voice in Canada. Today such ideals and the concept of individual liberty exist almost exclusively inside the U.S. As much as ever, America is a last bastion of freedom. One can only hope that with time American ideals will spread.

Canada is hardly alone on turning its back to the freedoms and responsibility that made western democracy so successful, says Mark Steyn in his New York Times bestseller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It.

“Today in your typical election campaign, the political platforms of at least one party in the United States and pretty much every party in the rest of the West are all but exclusively about secondary impulses: Government health care (which America is slouching towards incrementally but remorselessly), government daycare (which was supposedly the most important issue in the 2006 Canadian election), government paternity leave (which Britain has introduced). We’ve elevated the secondary impulses over the primary ones: national defense, self-reliance, family…”

But even as the rest of the world turns its back on libertarian values, America has not. That makes this year’s Thanksgiving special. Hopefully there will be even more to celebrate in two years.

Best wishes on Thanksgiving,

      Happy Thanksgiving Angel.
      I am thankful that I have had an opportunity in my life to know, serve, honor and love my precious Heavenly Father.
      I am thankful to be an American. I am thankful that God is still in control, no matter what it looks like or feels like, He is in control.
      I am thankful for the TEA Party that as Bob said has “instilled new passion and direction in the conservative movement, and it has done so from the bottom up. The ideas and inspiration from the Tea Party come mostly from ordinary people that Americans can understand, not intellectuals like William F. Buckley, Jr.”

      I am also thankful for a good and wonderful family. I have been blessed. We have had our problems, but we always have been able to work them out prayerfully.

      Happy Thanksgiving to all,
      and God bless America.

          Happy Thanksgiving, all.

          It is said that when we have a thankful heart, blessings pour out upon us.

          This nation has forgotten where blessings come from. Let this be the year to remember.

          Where is God when we need him. Tea party, right wing republicans, and Conservatism, then their you this is what’s wrong. Bush and Palin two pieces of toast short from a complete meal.

          • libertytrain

            Ah but it’s good and healthy all-grain wheat toast — not the fructose-based corn syrup junk food we’ve had of late.

    • JRC

      God was always missing, he was never there ..he is a fraud, a fake invented by men to control the simple minded superstitious sheep…and lucky in modern times people finally start to leave they’re superstitions behind and stop believing in fairy tales. Thus Thanksgiving will become nothing more then a time to be spend with family.

      • smithington

        Unfortunately my friend, you will one day confess that God is real. The fool has said in his heart, there is no God. God said, “I AM”. Let God be true, but every man a liar.

      • “JAVOPE”

        My friend I think you are confusing God with religion!

      • JLC

        JRC — There is an outside possibility that you might be right — I can not offer a logical argument one way or the other. But, consider the consequences if you are wrong!!!

      • BrotherPatriot

        I normally try not to respond to comments from people of your attitude however today I defend God. What an honor.

        There are 2 things I’m certain of. The Holy Righteousness of that which is Good and the Horrid Aberration that is Evil. These positive & negative energies are true forces that are forever locked in the eternal struggle.

        What God represents is the positive energy and cooperation. The Dark One is the negative energy and represents destruction that even feeds upon itself.

        This leads us to the knowledge that these powerful opposites that mirror each other in many ways have forces alighned to them…that these forces do work for that root level loyalty. This give us Angels & Demons/Devils. History has ample documented proof of things that are outside the normal range of description or understanding.

        In summary, I feel that humans don’t fully understand the equation of everything and we are foolish to think otherwise. But the basic fundamentals show that the feeling you get inside is a great compass to follow. There are those that really enjoy the sensation of helping another living intity through a difficulty or saving that intity from dying, that “warm fuzzy” feeling gives you sumtin special inside that is hard to fully discribe or define. Then there are those who take pleasure in the destruction of…well, fill in the blank. We as humans encompass the full range of spectrum in between those extremes…all of us have alittle of everything. However, it’s how we act upon life, the decisions we make and where we spend most of our time along that spectrum of possibilities that in turn define us.

        I have a personal saying that, “God is more Right than wrong.” (Haha…a little personal humor there.) :) But seriously, I believe in God because I have felt him stir inside me as I traveled through my life. I feel a bolstering when I do good and a shrinking within when I have done wrong. I know you have as well. Some of you may have done wrong for so long that that “feeling” is numb as you continue to follow the path of darkness however, He never truely leaves you. He is part of you. He is in all things and He loves you.

        God is…All things.

        A prayer:
        Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and please take the time formally say say a prayer to God and give Thanks for being an American and for all that we have. Ask for those that follow the dark path to become aware of the greater meaning of life, the greater equation and return to Gods light and the love that we all get to share with one another.

        God Bless.

        • Jana

          Thank you Brother Patriot.
          Happy thanksgiving to you too, and may God bless you and your family.

          • BrotherPatriot

            We very much appreciate that & sincerely hope your Thanksgiving was happy for you & yours as well. :)

            God Bless ya.

      • Jana

        You sound so sad. You say,”Thus Thanksgiving will become nothing more then a time to be spend with family.”
        Just a note here though, a long as people like you preach your gospel of Atheism, then people like me can tell of the Great News of Jesus. You see we do have a joy of celebration in honor of our God, and the great and wonderful gifts He has given us. The GIFT of Salvation. The GIFT of not having to go through life without any hope. The GIFT that He loves us and is not mad at those who honor and serve HIM, so we have no fear in what might happen.
        The GIFT of JOY. For the JOY of the LORD is our strength. And I will stop at this last one, although it is not the last of the gifts, the GIFT of TRUTH. Wow, that is the most important gift of all. When you know the Truth, the TRUTH will set you free. That TRUTH is Christ.

        No sir, you are gravely mistaken. He is alive and well. He talks to me everyday, and guides my very steps. His Spirit dwells within me, and has for the last 12 years. Before that, I was a mess like you, so I recognize your symptoms. I recognize them very well sir. Its called Satan having blinders on your eyes and ears. We are born into sin, and until you have Jesus in your life, you will be controlled by that same sin. Ever notice a 2 year old screaming “mine” as they are trying to pull a toy away from another? Now imagine that being in the body of 21 year old person. That is where your criminals come from, those who have never dealt with that sin, and asked God into their lives. That 21 year old is strong enough to go and take what they want, and they will suffer the consequencs of their sins when caught. And sooner or later you will get caught, as every knee will bow to Him one day, and give an account of themselves. Ive been on your side of the fence pal. I spent 40 years there. Ive spent the last 12 on this side, and I wont go back, because there is nothing there viable for me. And until you walk on this side of the fence, and let God open your eyes and ears to know what is here, you cannot fully make a truthful comparison, because you dont know. So until you make an attempt to get to know Him, and invite Him into your life, dont say He doesnt exist, because to those of us who have taken that step, well sir, we all know better, and recognize the ignorance of your statement, because we have been where you are at, and you havent been where we are at to make an educated statement about this, so you really shouldnt talk about something you know nothing about.

        • smithington

          Beberoni, Thank you for your faithful testimony. Keep up the good work. There will be rewards in Heaven for your faithfulness in witnessing for Jesus Christ, our Lord, Saviour and God!

      United States Supreme Court Will Soon Issue a Landmark Decision on the Validity of the Constitution!
      11/20/2010 •
      The United States Supreme Court will soon issue a landmark decision on the validity of the Constitution. The Supreme Court will consider three petitions filed by William M. Windsor, a retired Atlanta, Georgia grandfather. The decision should be rendered by the end of the year. Unless The Supreme Court acts, federal judges will be free to void the Constitution. The Questions Presented to The Supreme Court by Grandfather Windsor are: 1. Will The Supreme Court declare that the Constitution and its amendments may be voided by federal judges? 2. Should federal judges be stopped from committing illegal and corrupt acts to obstruct justice and inflict bias on litigants? 3. Will The Supreme Court be afraid to disclose the corruption in the federal courts? These questions are presented in three separate Petitions for Writ of Mandamus filed with The United States Supreme Court the first week of November 2010 (appeal numbers to-be-assigned).

      • Kate8

        Eddie, It is painfully apparent that too many of our courts have been stacked by the NWO, either by appointment (Sotomeyer, Kagen), or some means of coercion. The Left has gradually given the courts supreme power over the years, and once they are corrupted, we have NO protection from the other two brances.

        The three branches were meant to keep each other in check. The Supremes were equal, not superior. Our system has broken down and has become a self-serving Beast.

    Sometimes it’s good to step back and remember that we still have much to be thankful for. Everybody have a great Thanksgiving.

    Iam already told by a Doctor that he well not take my Mrdicare or tri care anymore because the Governments Health care .
    I don’t know what were going to do.

      Leta Misler, Just Pray for now!__We will pray for you too!__God Bless

    • Kate8

      Leta, These times are a reminder that government is not the source of our good. God is. This is what He wants us to know.

      We are all better off re-learning how to heal naturally and spiritually. Doctors can’t heal you, nor can drugs.

      Time to start thinking outside the prisons of our own minds.

      • Angel Wannabe

        Your right kate, the meds they give to heal us, only harm us farther anyway.

      • Margaret B

        The government is only like it is because of Big companies lobbying for their own interests. People need to do research on their own because the big companies are also running ads and websites to decieve the people. Look into the background of the people that run this site.

    • Margaret B

      Look for another Dr., I wouldn’t want that Dr. anyway. Look on, you may be able to find a Dr. through that or at least some good info. Insurance companies have demonized the healthcare bill, But its not that bad and could be improved upon. It also will reduce the dept by 183 million dollars. My Dr. likes the healthcare bill.

    • Jana

      Get in touch with medicare and ask them who to go to. Also, you probably have a supplemental insurance, talk to that Insurance Company too. you may have to go with an HMO Insurance supplement.
      Good luck sweetie, and God Bless You.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      And the dem’s that wanted this, have no idea what it even contains. They blindly support their party. Soon then will find out it will cost them dearly, unless they are someone without a job, which last I looked, was only around 10 percent of the population. The other 90 percent, hold on, your about to pay a whole lot more, and to get a whole lot less coverage. This is what happens when people dont read up on stuff, and blindly follow someones agenda who feeds them a bunch of baloney, and they dont take the time to find out what the truth actually is.

      • who cares

        Beberoni, your wrong againg. unemployment is about 20% and another 12% not counted. it was republican Reagan who started this mess.

    To Personal Liberity Digest – Thank you for all you do!!! God Bless America!!!

  • Gail M. Alario

    God Bless America….let’s be thankful that the republicans have control of the house….Thank you tea party!

    • Margaret B

      You don’t know what you are so thankful for. The Republicans are saying one thing and doing another for instance they say they are going to reduce the dept but if you look into the things they are saying they are going to do they will raise the dept. $700 billion to give tax cuts to the ultra rich. Yet they are voting no to help the people in this country that have lost their jobs. Now they want to cut further programs that help people in this country. They also are beholden to the special interests that gave them money to get into that power. I think your thankfulness is in the wrong corner.

      • Kate8

        Margaret, And just who do you think gives the democrats money to get into power? Why do you liberals ingore the fact that your own party does the very things you constantly accuse the republicans for doing?

        You seem like a typical clueless progressive.

        • Sue Bar

          Kate8, I totally agree with you – Margaret really needs to look at other sources of news. That 700 billion that Obama complains about is just a number he threw out, not something to believe in.

        • Jana

          Margaret B.,
          You talk about the Republicans “wanting to give tax cuts to the ultra rich”. NO, they just want to keep the current tax rates in place. No cutting of any taxes, and no raising of any taxes. The Government looks at all of your money as though it is already theirs. Then they decide that they need more of your money. EXCUSE ME, that money that I go out and earn is my money, and I pay taxes on it so the Gov.’t can run efficiantly. Now the Gov.’t has gone amuck and started a spending spree like a teenager with a credit card with no limits.
          This is wrong.

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        Geez, I must be ultra rich, at 50 grand a year, because just keeping the Bush tax cuts will benefit me a whole lot, whereas taking them away will end up costing me something like 1400.00 a year. Of course, I looked into this and figured it out. Maybe you just believed what those at the top of the left wing liberal chain are feeding you, and I assure you, they lied to you about this.

    “Tomorrow is perhaps America’s most important holiday.” Really, thanksgiving trumps the birth of Jesus Christ?

      Our Thanksgiving is an American Holiday, the Birth of Christ is more of a world-wide Holiday. Don’t look for things where they don’t exist – that’s why we have wars.

    • Ray Mason

      I think that the most important and least respected holiday is Easter. Christmas has become so much about money and junk, not to mention funny looking trees and lights everywhere. What’s with that? How many people remember that it is a celebration of the birth of our Christ Jesus. God help us. Ray

      • Jana

        We as Christians celebrate all of the Holidays with thanks to the Lord our God, each and every one. As a Christian, God is just part of our lives and cannot be left out of anything we do.

        • Angel Wannabe

          Jana, I wouldn’t think of leaving God out of anything!

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        All of us that know Him Ray, we all know that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The world, which is Satan’s playground, devises more and more things each and every year to try to take away the real meaning of this wonderful day, the birth of Jesus. I have no problem with Santa Claus for the little ones, and I dont fall into that thing people do about “change the letters around and it spells Satan”. Thats a bunch of bunk. To me, Jesus came and gave, and came to serve man. And he didnt do it to bring attention to Himself while He was here. He did it all for us, in the name of the Father in seeking His will for us to be re-united with God. Being Santa, gives us an opportunity to give, and not do it to take credit and say “Hey, look what I bought, aint I great”. No sir. We get no credit for it, but do it out of the goodness of our hearts. So Ive no problem with that part, as some legalistic people do. But more and more, society tries to reduce and diminish the real source of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ, to where the sick liberalism has perverted it to the point where they have places saying “Happy Holidays”, because they find Christmas to be offensive to someone, somehow, someway. Thats why I make a conscience effort, to not spend a single dime at any business that employs this practice. If you cant say Merry Christmas, at Christs Mass, then I cant shop at your store. If every person that says they are a Christian, which last time I looked over 70 percent in this country said they are, and each and everyone of us refused to purchased products at business’s that do this, they would get the message really quick. Thats all Ive got.

  • Paul

    We should be all thankful on Thanksgiving Day for on November 2, 2010 many if not all of us have woken up and to paraphrase one of our great leaders
    You can fool some of the people some of the time
    you can fool most of the people some of the time
    But you can not fool all of the people all of the time.

    On that note I am sure Thanksgiving Day in 2012 will be even better.

    • Agent Orange

      Should be “You can fool some people all the time, you can fool (almost) all people some of the time, but you can’t fool all people all the time”.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      Here here, and when this date comes, I will assure you, the economy will be in much better shape that today, as we definately will have a leadership change, more friendly to business and success instead of leadership that punishes success.

  • Tom

    As a Canadian — still living in Canada, but hopefully not much longer — John’s comments are pretty much dead-on. Most people here in Canada think you’re totally crazy if you even dare to discuss the merits of adding a private health care option (yes, even just an OPTION) to our socialized health care system. And don’t you DARE question whether the government is looking out for the public’s best interest.

    Only ~10% of the population goes to church. Opposition to gun control is confined to some rural areas and in the province of Alberta.

    The only possible exception to the demise of conservative principles is perhaps in Alberta. And even there it’s decreasing.

    Fortunately, the Canadian counterparts of the FDA, TSA, AMA, CIA, etc. are not (yet) quite as idiotic and corrupted as in the US.

    One comment/correction… In addition to the NDP and Green Party, the Bloc Quebecois is also at the far Left of the spectrum. So the ONLY reason why Canadians have elected the (quasi-) Conservative Party, is because of the split vote between the Liberal Party on the Left and the 3 other parties on the far Left.

    • Kate8

      Tom, Many nations have fallen to communism/socialism. It appears that America is falling, too, but…

      There has never before been an America. There has never before been the American spirit. We are seeing a resurgence of that spirit in spite of the best efforts of the Progressive Left, and I’m trusting that it just gets stronger.

      If we do go down, it won’t be because we all gave up.

        Thats because this administration we have now, is the greatest admin of division this country has ever seen, and they know it, and they think this is good, when in fact, it is very damning to this country. While the majority of the people want one thing, these guys think they know what we all need, and dont care what we think, they think they know better. Thats why over 60 of them lost their seats in 2010, and more to follow, including the numero uno in 2012. God Bless America.

    • who cares

      your crazy or high on snow. Canda has one of the best socialized medicine in the free world even Costa Rica has beter system then the USA. Tom you know you can visit a private doctore any time you desire and you not need to pay out pocket. In America might have the best medicine in the world, BUT if you don’t have the money to pay, you will not get to enjoy the best medcine in the world. you in the other hand you don’t need money. AND that’s what the right wing don’t want you to know.

    The thing that we really have to be thankful for is that the Tea Party brought compitition into the primaries. While a few canidates lost to Democrats in the general election it still sent fear into Republican progressives. Republican polititicians are in fear of losing their job at the primary level. We have to keep them in fear to keep them honest. The primaries are the true power and weapon of the Tea Party.

      wrong jeff, we have become the most corrupt nation on earth, God is gonna bless that? we are now under Gods judgement and we deserve it, look around it’s like the days of noah, the churchs are apostate, we’ve killed 50 million babies in this country! witchcraft everywhere you look, evil people profaning the name of God, politians all out for greed and a so called president hell bent on our destruction, no God cannot bless america but he can bless us indiviually pray for courage and his peace in the days ahead it’s going to get rough.

        But God also says, “If my people pray, I will heal their land”. Now being that so called 70 percent of us are Christians in this country, its time to hit our knee’s each and everyday, and ask God’s forgiveness for us putting un-Godly people into positions of power, and pray for Him to heal our land, and produce Godly people that we may elect into office. If we all as Christians do our job, we can right this ship. But we cant do it when some who actually call themselves followers of Jesus Christ, pull a lever and vote for people who willingly and knowingly fully support murdering children inside their mothers wombs. Im sorry, but if you vote for people that believe this is ok, then you are not a follower of Jesus Christ. You can say you are, but at heart, no, actions speak louder than words. Think about it, those of you who think yourselves to be Christ followers, and empower people who murder children. Its wrong, its murder, and your enabling it. Stop the madness, and do what Jesus would do, if your claiming Him as your Saviour.

    Another historical note… Canada did have a mostly conservative party from 1987 to 2000, the Reform Party. Unfortunately, it never garnered much support outside of Alberta and the western provinces. Plus, it split the vote with the Conservative Party, to give the Liberal Party big majorities for about 15 years.

    They aligned with some members of the Progressive Conservative Party in 2000 to form the Canadian Alliance Party, and then merged with the Progressive Conservative Party in 2003 to form the current Conservative Party of Canada.

  • Bruce D.

    Not only have Canadians lost sight of individual liberty so have Europeans. Most seek a welfare state and redistribution. With that free lunch comes subservience to government rules and regulations for the security of social equality. Only Americans have the will and the foundation to care about individual liberty. To have that understanding you have to know what the ‘founders’ were trying to accomplish when they set up this country. Those on the left have no clue. It is no longer emphasized in our schools. The Tea Party has taken it upon themselves to self educate.

    • Kate8

      Bruce D. – That is why they’ve been flooding America with immigrants who only want to game the system, and care nothing about American principles or the Constitution. That is the goal of multi-culturalism.
      If we don’t stem this influx they will soon outnumber us.

      It is on us to carry the true message of America.

      • Bruce D.

        I really believe what you are saying Kate8. We need to keep the socialists (both legal and illegal) from migrating into this country. Americans need to have some feelings of self preservation at this time or we are finnished.

        • Kate8

          Unfortunately, the Left has an addiction to self-loathing and can’t find much to like about America. Wallowing in guilt for real and perceived infractions against humanity is non-productive, self-defeating and useless.

          It’s a good thing there are still lots of us who still value what America was built to stand for.

  • S.C.Murf

    People stop and look at what we do have in America compared to the rest of the world, and those of you that have been overseas and witnessed first hand at what the conditions are there, then you know we are truly blessed, Praise Jesus and have a happy Thanksgiving. And maybe we can start friday with a true attitude of gratitude.

  • Tazio2013

    What all you feel good, tea-bagging, god fearing, crusading christian conservative, white wing wackos need to understand is this: jesus is not coming back to save all the ignorant sheeple so, try intelligence, reality, truth and objective knowledge for a refreshing change. And from today’s Daily Bell:

    Comment: Trial balloons are constantly being floated to test the limits of how far government can go. The answer to the question is that it can impose restrictions, boss people around, steal, and kill people up to the point of insurrection and revolution. The task for government is to impose as much rule over its subjects as it can without themselves ending up hanging from a streetlight in the town square.

    There are three levels of test going on in this trial balloon.

    Level One: To see whether American society has reached the point where a willing Adolph Eichmann can be recruited. The Wiki on him says; “sometimes referred to as “the architect of the Holocaust”, was a German Nazi and SS-Obersturmbannfhrer (equivalent to Lieutenant Colonel). Because of his organizational talents and ideological reliability, he was charged by Obergruppenfhrer (General) Reinhard Heydrich with the task of facilitating and managing the logistics of mass deportation of Jews to ghettos and extermination camps in German-occupied Eastern Europe.”

    Level Two: To determine whether the century-long experiment in public education has brought about sufficient ignorance of basic science, chemistry, and cause/effect relations to make it possible to launch nationwide programs where the actions have virtually no relation to the stated justifications for them without the absurdity being laughed at.

    Level Three: To determine whether the century-long social engineering program has successfully emasculated and demoralized the population to the extent that they will meekly or willingly submit to public violation of their persons, probing of their last refuge of privacy (their crotch), and total humiliation and subjugation in full view of loved ones and strangers.

    Previous conversations here have explored whether it was appropriate for Gary North to describe Ellen Brown’s economics as the economics of Hitler. It may have been impolite of him but the assertion is literally true. Here, it is almost impossible to avoid the blatant parallels between the philosophy, mindset, aims, excuses, tactics, propaganda, and meek compliance of the *ruled population* with that of WWII Germany.

    It should come as no surprise that any society would fail the test at Level One, above. Tyrants are always around, you might even work for one. Read up on authoritarian personality types for a real good scare. To see how dangerous this is, read up on the Milgram experiment.

    It is obvious how we have fared on test Level Two. Look how long promotions like food-into-alcohol fuel stumble along before finally being abandoned. Future generations will wonder how our society went insane.

    Our last stand is Level Three. If we fail this test, you know what comes next. Although it seems probable that Leonard Peikoff has lost his mind, in more lucid times he wrote a book entitled “The Ominous Parallels”. Written in 1982, it warned about what we see unfolding before us today.

    Reply from the Daily Bell:
    Previous conversations here have explored whether it was appropriate for Gary North to describe Ellen Brown’s economics as the economics of Hitler.

    Therefore, elect all the republikrats you want and there will be no change in the current (and from at least 1913; more likely since the civil war) American socialist/fascist empire until a third party is a majority which, imco, will not happen until 01/20/2021 if we’re lucky.

      Your right, in that when He comes back, it wont be to save all the so called ignorant sheeple as you call them. No sir, we will all be taken into Heaven by then. When He comes, and He will come, He will come to judge the earth and all its inhabitants, and the earth will be destroyed by fire. Now heathens like you will try to say “that doesnt sound like a loving God to me”. Oh, but it is sir. It is. You see, you spend all your life here on earth living without Him, telling Him he doesnt exist, telling Him you dont need Him, that you dont want Him. So when its time for you to go, and sir, last time I looked, one out of one die, and when you go, and you will go, He will look at you, and give you the desires of your heart, which is to send you to a place where you will never, ever, hear His name again. If you have a problem with that, you might want to change the road your on, because that is where your heading sir. And if you think you just somehow got here, and that you die and go into the ground and thats it, I would have to say, what a sad, sad life you must live. I mean come on man, whats the point then? Just what would the point be? And see, I know for a fact, with absolute certaintly, that He is who He says He is, as He has revealed Himself to me, and entered into me and lives inside me. And all I had to do, was tell Him I needed Him in my live, and He came and revealed to me. I would want this for you also, and I will pray for you, that Jesus Christ will come, and lift you out of that dark, dark place you are in, and bring you into the light, and open your eyes and ears that you may see and hear. I once roamed around in the same darkness you are in. I did it for 40 years sir. Come into the light, there are wonderful things awaiting you.

        Hey Tazio — if Dumbo keeps doing what he’s been doing for the past two years, a yellow dog could beat him in the general elections, while Sarah (or almost any other human Republican candidate) would trounce him by 25 or more electoral votes! Your assertion that Sarah’s nomination would “guarantee” Dumbo’s reelection is nothing but hot air from a far-left progressive moron who’d like nothing better than to see him turn this country into the next Soviet Union!

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        There is nothing that anyone can do, short of a military coup that would give Obama a second term. America has realized they were bamboozed, and done already booted 60 of his co-horts to the curb, and the rest are coming soon. And seriously, had the 2008 ticket been Palin-McCain, instead of McCain-Palin, we wouldnt have had this mess we are in now. That woman is a credit to politicians, and I can see why you liberals attack her, because she scares the daylights out of you, because she brings something really foreign to all of you on the left to the table. She actually speaks the truth, and does what she says she is going to do. Name me the last democratic governor that balanced his states budget, got rid of corrupt politicians in their own party, and gave the people in their state money back? You cant do it, because they will never let it happen. A democrat will never, ever, give people money back. Never. They will spend it first, because that is what they do sir. I know it, you know it, and God knows it. Of course, those are just the facts, in case your interested in some truth today. If not, then listen to Obama speak to you.

  • Samkd

    We all just need to be Thanksful to God for his Blessings on this country and it’s citizens, eventhough many times we do not deserve His blessing. We trample on His word and disobey His commandments, and still He loves us. This is really what we need to be thankful for.

      I agree — if we’re to be truly thankful to God, we should stop disrespecting His commandments and pass a Constitutional amendment banning same-sex “marriage” for good.

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        And stop murdering babies in the womb. And stop endorsing a perverted lifestyle that sleeps with its own sex, as it is written that this is an abomination to Lord. And Im pretty sure that means its not good. And stop kicking God out of school, and out of government, and everywhere else. Or there will eventually come a point, where God will tire of this disobediance, and he will deliver us into the hands of a lesser enemy. Read your Bible people, it happened time and time again througout the Bible, as the people would continually move away from Him, and he would discipline them, then they would straighten up, then go bad again, then they would fall again. If you dont learn from History, you are doomed to repeat it. And thats the truth.

Please John, tell me one thing that is better in USA than Canada. There at least, they are not loosing their homes and credits because of Wall Street crooks and gangster banks. Freedom my ass. I leave in Canada for many years and I’m going back there. USA is corrupt to the bone. If you like guns, please stay in USA you would be miserable in Canada.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    I’d like to add a little hope of news that may someday become a deal breaker. Let us all hope that justice will be served once and for all.

    U.S. Supreme Court confers on Obama eligibility
    Is president a ‘natural-born citizen’ as Constitution requires?
    November 23, 2010
    9:45 pm Eastern
    WASHINGTON – Is this the case that will break the presidential eligibility question wide open?

    The Supreme Court conferred today on whether arguments should be heard on the merits of Kerchner v. Obama, a case challenging whether President Barack Obama is qualified to serve as president because he may not be a “natural-born citizen” as required by Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.

    The last official report said Obama has spent $1.6 million in legal fees [keeping his papers secret], and the total is probably over $2 million now. You don’t spend that kind of money unless there’s something to hide, and I believe the reason he’s hiding this is because he was not born in the United States.”

    Unlike other eligibility cases that have reached the Supreme Court, Kerchner vs. Obama focuses on the “Vattel theory,” which argues that the writers of the Constitution believed the term “natural-born citizen” to mean a person born in the United States to parents who were both American citizens.

    If any court hears the merits of the case, Apuzzo says it will mark the “death knell” for Obama’s legitimacy.

    “Given my research of what a natural-born citizen is, he cannot be a natural-born citizen so it’s a death knell to his legitimacy. What happens on a practical level, how our political institutions would work that out, is something else,” Apuzzo told WND.
    Mario Apuzzo
    Apuzzo observed it is “undisputed fact” that Obama’s father was a British subject.

And your right, if someone is going to spend all that money to not produce something, then there is one of two things going on here. One, they cant produce it, and are paying to hide it, or two, they are pretty darned stupid to pay that kind of cash to not show something that they have.

    Well maybe Mr Myers does not like Canada, but judging from my two daughters who both live in the States and I and my wife in Canada we are in a fairly good position to judge the merits of one against the other. WE are happy that we live in Canada. No military that keeps invading other countries almost in every decade, a health care system where you don’t have to go bankrupt if something terrible happens, less guns on the street a better education system and superior banking system to mention a few. The things you laud about such movements as the Tea Party were fine two hundred years ago. Today the world is a different place and simple solutions to complex matters will not work. I think the States is in terminal decline. Sad because I think it was a great Nation and its decline will be a loss to the world.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      You dont need a military, because you depend on us to keep you safe. Your socialized medicine system is a joke, because I know for a fact a fishing buddy of mine up there, had his dad die because he had to get on a waiting list to be seen, and died the day after they told him to come back in 3 weeks. Your tax rate is actually nuts, so you must like having the government take your money from you, and every where you look, some french blooded person is rolled up into a ball being a pacifist appeaser, and with your liberal outlook on things there, its pretty much just a matter of time before the muslims move in and start taking you over, and you will readily lie down for them. You know, if your medical system is so good, why do half the people that write posts say it sucks, and why are there so many Canadians that come down here to the United States, and pay for surgery’s they need, instead of getting it free up there? Now that says a whole lot to me, and to all that are interested in the truth about things. It cant be to good if people would rather come here and pay and not stay there and get it free. See what Im saying. So I think you are a liberal plant, and are telling lies. Because our health systems blows yours away, hands down. For now, but Obama is trying to screw it up.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        I have an Aunt that lives there and has for almost 65 years and she says basically the same thing you do!!!

    most canadians i have met are a different breed of cat, they profess to be free, but bow to the government who dish’s out their welfare. they have a mediocre medical system and find it necessary to come to the u.s. for a higher quality of care, yet ridicule our past system. you should pray that we never decline, who would protect canada, we are the ones that secure your well being that’s why you don’t have a large standing army. even with the country under the rule of an idiot, we are still the greatest nation on earth, barry may try to reduce us to a third world atatus, however, he won’t succeed.

    I believe in that old saying “Actions always speak louder than words.”
    We need to keep a vigilant eye on everything our representatives in Congress are doing, whether they are new to the game or have been there awhile. I just signed up for Megavote, which is a free newsletter that tells me how my Congress critter voted on bills. Here is a link:

    I just loved what I read about people in Washington state tearing down the metric signs. That’s called nullification, which has been mentioned many times in articles on the Personal Liberty site. We can overcome many terrible things coming out of the district of criminals by banding together and refusing to go along with all of the destructive ideas they come up with. California did it with medical marijuana and we can do the same with Obamacare, TSA, etc.

    I really enjoy reading this blog every day. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow bloggers and their families.

They will not raise our taxes like the liberals are doing. They will not go into back rooms and ram a health care program that 70 percent of the people dont want, down our throats anyhow. No, these are the evil anti American things your left wing liberal democrats do. They sell us to our enemies. I mean, come on man, who is the democrats chief financier? George Soros.

    For those that don’t know about history … Here is a condensed version:
    Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

    The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

    1 . Liberals
    2 Conservatives.

    Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottlenor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sittingaround waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That’s how villages were formed.

    Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at nightwhile they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement…

    Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ’s and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.

    Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. They became known as girlie-men. Some note worthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided

    Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant.Liberals are symbolized by the jackass for obvious reasons.

    Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare.. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn’t fair to make the pitcher also bat.
    Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud or Miller. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks,construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively.

    Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

    Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America .. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

    Here ends today’s lesson in world history:

    It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before deleting it.

    A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to piss them off.

    And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self…..I’m going to have another beer.
    Happy Thanksgiving all and God Bless America & all that fight for her!!!

      Right on!!!! I love it. HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!!!

      Pretty funny Void and mostly accurate. I will not challenge you yet since we are in spirit of being thankful and we should be. After all we could have been born in Afghanistan.

      After reading your post, and putting it under very close and complete study, I must say, BRILLIANT. Well said, and very truthful.

    Reality check for John Myers: First of all, libertarianism is NOT the same as conservatism; conservatives believe in UPHOLDING the VALUES that made America great, such as loyalty, patriotism, a STRONG NATIONAL DEFENSE, the TRADITIONAL FAMILY, secure borders, preserving our Judeo-Christian culture against so-called “progressive” change and “multi-culturalism”, the RIGHT TO SELF-DEFENSE, and protecting WE THE PEOPLE from all enemies foreign and domestic; whereas libertarians like to brag about being “fiscally conservative” because they support limited government spending and the freedom of enterprise (positions that they share with TRUE conservatives), but unlike true conservatives, they support open borders, gay marriage, multiculturalism (even to the point of sticking up for TERRORISTS’ “right” to insult the American culture by building a mosque at Ground Zero), and OPPOSE having a strong military to protect our nation from attack! For these reasons, libertarians are no more “conservatives” than neocons (who share the conservatives’ positions on defense but not on anything else) are! What we clearly need in this country is TRUE conservatism of the sort that Ronald Reagan (a Conservative, NOT a libertarian) stood for, not libertarianism that would only further undermine our values and unravel the very fabric of the nation!

    • Eric Bischoff

      I a progressive can get behind a lot of Libertarian ideals but I do find hardcore conservative ideology too restrictive for my taste.

  • CN says

    Tazio2013 tries to sound like he has it all together,but mistake #1
    is we do have a GOD of creation and a Savior name JESUS. Many well
    educated people have sincerely tried to disprove the bible only
    to be converted. As for the greatest country in the world with all
    its faults is still United States of America. If this is not true
    why is everybody trying to get in?

    The Tea Party is not a phenomenon because any half intelligent person knows the Tea Party = Right wing Republicans and that is nothing new —-YAWN….oh yeah “You betcha”

  • Cayita

    OMG, OMG, OMG!!! Wow, I feel so uninformed. To EddieW: Thanks for the info on the Supreme Court. Our world is on the verge of being so terrifying (to me), I have to really try to stay focused on the fact that God is in control, and no matter what happens here on this earth, it is all heading in the direction God wants it to, towards the end. Praise God. To think that the Supreme Court would be so audacious, so arrogant that it would try to take away what our country was founded on is horrifying. Satan is of this world and in the highest reaches thereof. To JRC: You are so sad, so pitiful. To Kate8: I surely mostly agree. I still believe that God can work to our good using some of Today’s Medicines and the Medical World to help us, however, I also believe much as you do, that we have to remember to search for answers in what God has created, not necessarily what Man has created. God bless us all and help us to live as He wills. Amen

    We should be thankful to women, our mothers, wives and daughters for the use of their bodies to keep civilizations alive by providing child gestation, birth and rearing. We should figure out what that is worth and pay them dearly for it and give them a huge tax break for it. We should show them our gratitude by providing health services and education to make sure these children are healthy and more productive in society. We should count this in our GDP. It would make us feel better about ourselves instantly. The stock market would be scintillated and exuberant but still nothing much would have changed, just our behavior and attitude. An attitude of Fairness, Respect and Gratitude.

    • Void1972

      Please find and read a book named “To Eliminate The Opiate” by Marvin Antleman. It will explain much about yourself!

    • http://?? Joe H.

      do you realize YOU are the reason so many people are devoid of certain rights?? The federal government monitors this site and when they read what you write whip, wham, whippo, the feds say no pot!!!! No THC, PERIOD!!!!

  • Ed

    I thought the first Thanksgiving was possible because the settlers from England had help from the resident Indians who taught them how to grow food and survive in the strange new land.

    If they had been true conservatives, they would have had nothing to do with the ignorant pagan communistic Indians and would have happily starved to death that first year.

    Obviously our settler forefathers were closet libs who didn’t realize that the Jesus they worshiped was really a conservative libertarian who taught that people shouldn’t be hamstrung by divine law.

    • Jana

      Even if it were true what you said abut the “communist Indians”, God can use anyone in any way that he chooses. If God provided the friendship of the Indians to teach the settlers how to live in this land, why would they have refused? God still provided for these settlers.

      However, I will state that many Indians have honored God and loved God throughout their lives. Going back into the history of the different tribes, it has been shown and told over and over how these wonderful people have honored God through a lot of their traditions.

      Sorry, I guess you thought WRONG.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Had the pilgrims been progressives, there wouldnt have been a SECOND thanksgiving! They would have surrendered to the indians, never learned to farm, hunt, or be self sufficient! course as soon as they started suggesting raising taxes, the native americans would have expelled them from the tribe and sent them packing back to England!!! thus there would have never been a good ole U.S. of A.!!!!! Look there, I just thought up ANOTHER thing to be thankful for!!!

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      God moves in the hearts of people, and he protected these first settlers, by softening the hearts of the natives who could have wiped them out real easy if they had wanted to. But you take God out of the equation, which is wrong and a mistake by you. Like when Joseph’s brothers threw him in the tar pit to die, God pulled him out, and eventually led him to be a top guy in Egypt, who then saved his brothers by being kind to them, as God moved him to do. Dont take God out of the equation, for to do so, shows your ignorance. Do not knock or attack that which you do not understand or know. Ignorance is not bliss.

  • Joe

    I guess no one can answer why the Tea Party never existed when W was in charge, since during his reign the economy tanked? I’ll tell you why. They want to put dumb (Sarah Palin) and dumber (Christine O’Donnell) in office.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      The economy didnt tank until he was a lame duck in his last year, when everyone, including every American business knew that the democrats were going to come into power, and that they would need cash reserves to pay these tax monsters. And they thought right. And now they are paying higher taxes. And many lost their jobs because of this, and the economy grinded to a halt. But gee, lets compare. When Bush took over from Clinton, we were in a major recession. He rolled up his sleeves and went to work, and at his 2 year mark, the economy was rolling along pretty darn well. Now 2 years into Obama, we have seen unemployment rise from 4.5 to over 10 percent, and as soon as they kill the Bush tax cuts like they want to, it will rise at least 2 more percent, maybe higher. And they are content to stand their on their pedestal and point fingers and blame others. Why is this? The Bush admin turned it around in 2 years. Why cant this one? Because, facts are facts are facts. When you have no plans, no ideas, this is what happens. And Im telling you true, not until 2012 when the rest of these liberals are voted out, then you will see the economy really pick up. Well, maybe even next year when it is evident that there is new power coming, business will start to move know that business minded people, instead of tax minded people are coming into power. Sorry if you dont like it, but thats the facts of how it was, and of how it is. And when 2012 gets here, you will see how correct this is. So until then, you can argue and fight me and call me names, but like I said, the facts are the facts are the facts, and the facts will bear this out to be true.

      • Eric Bischoff

        Stop being such a Bébé Roni. You have this all mixed up. It’s understandable as you probably aren’t an economist. It has nothing to do with which politicians or ideologies we are stuck with at any given time.

        The reality is the supposedly conservative Republicans have had a SPENDING ORGY every time they’ve been in power. Then when they get knocked out they oppose spending on anything and loudly profess that the Democrats are the biggest spenders. You have to admit it’s a brilliant strategy. Too bad it has nothing to do with reality or making things better for the country but everything to do with power.

        But even if you were an economist, they don’t teach economics history to economists just like they don’t teach nutrition to doctors. So most of them can’t connect the dots of where we’ve been and where we are now and why. How can we ever get out of the mess we are in when the Universities are still teaching 19th century economics in a 21st century world.

        Economist also have no understanding of poverty. What good is knowledge without understanding.

        Economists and politicians know everything that shouldn’t be done and still they do it anyway. That is the definition of stupidity.

        We should be taking our cues from a diffent bunch than the Goldman Sachs, the Fed, Centrl Banks, the IMF and World Bank BANKSTERS.

        One such alternative economist is Manfred Max-Neef, Right Livelihood Award recipient who says we need a new Economics:
        1) One that serves People first
        2) One where development is for people not objects
        3) We need to understand that Growth is not the same as development and development does not always require growth.
        4) No economy is possible in the absence of ecosystem Services
        5) Economics is a subsystem of a larger finite system – the Biosphere. Hence perpetual growth is physically impossible.
        6) The fundamental value to sustain a new economy should be that no economic interest under any circumstance can be above evidence of life. Life and not just humans is most important.

        Today we operate in the complete opposite of this.

        Growth is just Accumulation
        Development is Liberation of the Creative

        Economists today are obssessed with perpetual growth. We as humans do not grow forever. We grow and at some point, stop growing and then hopefully develop. Well some do anyway.

        Beyond growth’s threshold point, quality of life deteriorates. The US is currently the most dramatic example of this. We are now being coined as an Under Developing Nation where the top 1% are always doing better and the other 99% are always doing worse.

        Speculators have saddled us with $13 Trillion in debts, we give them bailout money which they spend on bonuses for themselves and everyone cries that we have no money for the homeless, sick and hungry, education and healthcare.

        We are the most powerful nation yet we can’t seem to win any wars or get out of them gracefully. We are however wasting Trillions on them.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          We can’t seem to win any wars??? well, get your bleeding heart liberal progressives out of the way and let us FIGHT a war and we will win!!! Get the hell out of the way and our troops will win!!!

          • who cares

            Whats happen to the eight years of bush war? was’nt your guy war. Joe H. are joining, are you now in the military? or are you one of those who have lots of excuses why no to go? Joe your my horo.

      • who cares

        you wing nuts had eight years of bush, look what he did 9-11 happen because of you guys. the bailout were bush pay back to his friend. what Obama did was force bush’s friends to pay back the government so instead of a bailout it became a loan!!! where you geniuses get your information, fox (opinion) news the tokyo rose station. get a brain and a life while you are at it Beberoni.
