How Barack Obama Will Destroy Liberalism

September 4, 2009 by  

How Barack Obama Will Destroy Liberalism

I’ve got great news for you. In case you haven’t noticed, Barack Obama’s honeymoon with a trusting, gullible public is over.

For the first time since last November, a majority of Americans say they don’t like his policies. Many of them are concerned that he is going to bankrupt the country. Can you believe it? Where would they get such a crazy idea?

Before I get into the specific policy mistakes—and the Obama Administration has made a ton of them—let’s take a brief look at the numbers. The Angry Left likes to take all of the credit for Obama’s election (and thus demands that he implement every far-left scheme they can propose). But the truth is vastly different.

Last November, Barack Obama won the election with 53 million votes. John McCain finished second with 46 million votes. That’s a margin of 7 million.

Who were those voters? Almost without exception, they came from the middle of the political spectrum. They are neither Republicans or Democrats. They describe themselves as independents.

And here’s the amazing thing: Some 10 million of them now say they don’t like what President Obama is doing.

At the beginning of his term, President Obama enjoyed the support of more than 80 percent of the people who described themselves as independents. Today that number has fallen to under 50 percent. That’s an amazing reversal in just a few months.

How did Obama do it? Let me count just a few of the ways.

  1. A stimulus program that didn’t stimulate. While the street cleaners in Washington were still cleaning up the confetti from the inauguration, the Democrats rammed through an $800-billion stimulus bill. The measure was supposed to solve our employment crisis, bail out state and local governments, get the economy moving again and make flowers grow in the desert.

Okay, I’m kidding about the last one. But you remember all the extravagant promises this massive spending bill was supposed to achieve. Instead, unemployment has continued to climb, California was forced to issue IOUs, the housing crisis took a turn for the worse and the economy barely limps along. To paraphrase an old country song, Congress got the gold mine (the bill had so much pork it squealed) while the taxpayers got the shaft.

  1. Next, Obama set out to nationalize just about everything. The Feds took $100 billion or so to bail out their buddies on Wall Street. The insurance industry was next, with $80 billion going to prop up just one company, American International Group (aka AIG). Then the national banks were coerced into taking loads of federal moola—and all the “oversight” that would mean. The car companies were the next takeover target, as Uncle Sam became the new boss at Chrysler and General Motors.

And now the Obama Administration wants to make health care in this country more “fair” and “efficient.” I’ll have more to say about the absolute ludicrousness of such proposals at some other time. For now, let me just note that a whole lot of Americans have gotten so fed up, they’re saying “no more!”

  1. Massive new spending, and exploding deficits, as far into the future as we can see. What will all of this incredible largesse cost? In less than six months the Obama Administration has racked up the biggest deficit this country has ever witnessed. And the red ink will continue to pour over us for as far into the future as we can see.

The administration claims that its cost over-runs will “only” amount to a trillion dollars a year for the next 10 years or so. They base this number on incredibly optimistic estimates of how much their programs will cost. And even more generous guesses of how much tax revenue they can take from us.

Of course, anyone who believes these projections won’t go a whole lot higher probably also believes in the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny. Every sensible American knows that spending will get worse, taxes will get higher—and the deficits will multiply faster than maggots in a dumpster.

Along with all of these big issues, there have been dozens of smaller ones that have damaged Obama’s poise and credibility. How stupid was it for him to call the police in Cambridge, Mass., stupid? I was shocked and shamed to see the President of the United States use his bully platform to side with a black professor who lost his cool. So were a lot of other Americans, both black and white. Obama responded like a knee-jerk racist.

Then there was his 180-degree turnabout regarding the interrogation of terrorists. At first Obama promised there would be no prosecution of the CIA agents who, in the words of a Washington Times editorial, “produced life-saving intelligence that disrupted numerous terrorist plots.” Now our President has torn up that pledge. In an effort to placate the extremists on his left he has authorized Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the matter. Can anyone doubt that prosecutions will be far behind?

I won’t even get into all of Obama’s foreign-policy blunders. Everywhere you look it seems to be his intention to treat our friends as enemies and our enemies as friends. South of our border, the good people and legitimate government of Honduras used legal and constitutional means to rid themselves of a Hugo Chavez crony. Instead of applauding them for protecting their liberties, Obama’s State Department seems determined to reinstall a budding Marxist tyrant there. Shame on them.

To put it as succinctly as possible, Barack Obama seems determined to preside over the most radical transformation of the Federal Government this country has ever seen.

And the American people don’t want it.

The American people don’t want trillion-dollar deficits. They don’t want huge new government agencies to supervise our health care. They don’t want the people who defended us from terrorism persecuted or prosecuted.

They don’t want our friends penalized or our enemies pandered to. They don’t want more of their hard-earned money taken from them and given to people who didn’t earn it and don’t deserve it.

And when they’ve had all they can stand, they really don’t want to be called “un-American” and “evil mongers” when they finally decide to speak out.

So what do I think will happen?

I think we are witnessing the beginning of the end of liberal domination in Washington. I think Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank and Barack Obama have badly underestimated the American people. They lied about what they’d do and they badly misjudged how much we would endure.

The counter-revolution has begun. You can see it at town hall meetings and tea parties. You can hear it in conversations with your neighbors. You can feel it as the left becomes more hysterical, more abusive, and … yes, I’m delighted to say it … more frightened.

We won’t win every battle over the next year or two. But we’ll win a bunch of them. And before too much more time passes—by the time Barack Obama’s successor is getting ready to leave the White House—I predict that the Obama era will be seen as the last gasp of liberalism. The dinosaurs of the left may not become extinct. But they are about to lose their fangs.

Yes, the era of big government will soon be over. And we’ll have Barack Obama and all of his over-reaching cronies to thank for it.

Until next time, keep some powder dry.

      It’s at this point we democrats are saying “we are lovin it and chip , you are hatin it”

      • Dennis

        All i can say is GO OBAMA GO OBAMA GO OBAMA DESTROY IT YOUR THE preaccident and do what you do best LIE.

      • The Patriot

        dear Mark Wagner what exactly are you lovin about this administration? What are you so proud of? Fundamentaly shredding
        the constition? Don’t you like your freedom? you sound like the kind of guy who wants your uncle sam to hold your hand,and make up your mind up for you, and tell you how to spend your money. Or are you so
        shallow that you just want your team to win regardless of who gets hurt? You must be some kind of hero,just like your president.

        • Dr. smith

          1st sergeant Mark is no more a sergeant then I’m a czar under the new Obama Order! Maybe he’s referring to his Grandfather who was a sergeant in the SS.

          Patriot, you have to understand the mindset of these folks. They’re ugly, hateful, spiteful, vicious people! You would best to just ignore them as a reply is wasted.

          As Ben Franklin said, “You cannot reason a man out of a position he has not reasoned himself into.” Emotion is the seducer who charms them, and reason changes minds, not hearts.

          People like the sergeant despise and loathe this country. why? They’ve failed their entire lives, they resent, vehemently, anyone successful or more endowed.

          Envy at it’s worst. Just imagine the young sergeant at the playground. The other boys are playing and he’s left out because of some personally failing. resentment is building, he becomes an adult – speaking physically, as he’s always been cared for by mom or government – and now his spiteful venom is lashing out!

          His Mom, if she was around, never told him “you shouldn’t cut off your nose to spite your face!”

          Because…he’s willing to throw All his freedoms away and hand everything over to a Dictator, just for spite. Of course, he’ll continue on in his unsuccessful life having the government wipe his ars for him. By this time, he’ll find something or someone else to turn his spite on, in between watching silly sitcoms on tv, and drinking the kool aid of the present csar, all the while praising the leaders and demanding more and more from entitlements before the system collapses from too few paying in and to many taking out! Just like the previous USSR.

          when half the folks get the idea that government will take of them and the other half realizes that it’s no good to work because what they work for goes to someone else, that is the beginning of the end!

          you see…The government doesn’t give anything out to anybody for free, but must first TAKE IT from someone else. i.e. Punish the successful, reward unproductiveness!

            Bravo Dr Smith, “The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other peoples money” Margaret Thatcher

            By the way,I really do miss watching “Lost in Space”
            Sorry, couldn’t help myself.

          • eyeswideopen

            Dr. Smith,
            Please don’t make this a personal attack on someone who served or is still serving their country. The last time I checked ,we are a country who has two political and sometimes three parties. Until us Republicans make this a country into just one party, it is no crime to belong to the other party, and just because you do, doesn’t make you an evil person.
            Funny that this man can fight for your freedoms, but you treat him with disgust and vile contemptible attacks. Praise the Conservatives!!!! The righteous right, my butt.
            You a Dr.??? , you sound so compassionate and caring,,do your patients have to tell you their political affiliation before you treat them? Do you tell them yours??

          • Michael

            Dr. Smith, No one knows who anyone that post here actually is. They can use a military preface to favor accountability or maybe claim to be a republican who has seen the light. Maybe they have no regards at all for god and country but instead just like to stir the pot. We may never know. Well, that’s it for now. Gotta get suited up for a scheduled EVA in 25 clicks to refit a frozen solar array. Hope the weather is good down there.
            P.S. I’ll give you a heads-up if I drop any wrenches.

          • billy

            george bush(R) and dick cheney(R) were the best ,they were not dictators like obama(D), they did not drive this country’s economy into the ground by giving extremely rich people tax cuts and by taking the surplus that “bubba”(D) handed to them (right after katherine harris handed them florida) and give this surplus to the extremely rich as well – obama did that- but that makes sense because obama is an elitist as that multi-millionaire Mcain pointed out. for all you (R) people- understand : you are a dying breed in this country..you will see this is true once all the states turn blue right after your girl sarah implodes your party even deeper after the 2012 election.

        • Stuart

          EXACTLY!!!!!!! Right ON!!!!!!

      • eyeswideopen

        Sarge, these people can’t decide if we are going to become a nation of : socialism, fascism, communism, or liberalism, you know anything with an ism attached. Until they figure that out, they will be fighting amongst themselves for a long time. Maybe they will look up definations and decide? Who knows. lol
        Thanks for serving this country.

  • s c

    Don’t start celebrating quite yet, ChrisR. Even in politics, nature abhors a vacuum. When (and if) liberalism is eliminated, something will take its place. What will it be?
    Politics is much too diabolical to be left without a replacement for political insanity (liberalism). Call me a quasi-pessimist, but only God can and will solve that issue. Humans don’t pack the gear. Humans never did.

    • http://www.aynrand.org Paul Beaird

      S.C.’s point that nature abhors a vacuum is a valid one. Liberalism, the slow path to achieving socialism, died as an ideal at the end f WWII, after most of a century demonstrated that the adoration of the collective (whether tribal, religious, national, racial, or any other group perspective) ends up in the literal human sacrifice of the individual, hundreds of millions of whom were murdered by the fascist wing of the Left and by the communist wing of the Left, all in the name of the well-being of the social organism.
      So, why does the Left’s world-view persist in America? Because the Right is so anti-intellectual, so dependent on its religious roots that it can’t discover nor voice a reasoned view of the relationship of the individual to the society he lives in. In other word, the God-will-come-someday world-view offers the vacuum that Liberalism keeps on filling.
      The original Right, in America anyway, flows quietly and at a low level from the world-view of the best of the American Founding Fathers who abhorred Democracy. In their view, just as natural law applied to every living and inanimate thing in nature, just as each thing has its nature and certain actions are native to it, so man, possessed of reason and free will, has a nature and certain conditions are proper for him. They viewed freedom as that natural condition required for the well-being of human life. So, they established a political structure in which the cornerstone, the moral principle of society was and always must be, by the very nature of things, individual rights. They held that that moral principle alone gave government its sole purpose and justification for existing. Individual rights is a moral concept applied to s society and, at a minimum, means that certain conditions needed for men to keep and enlarge and enjoy their lives belong to each man individually and may not even be voted on, let alone legislated against.
      The aim of the sons and daughters of Americans who went to European universities for their advanced education was to undermine this individualist pnint of view, resulting in the Progressive movement in America at the end of the 1800s and the beginning of the 1900s, most popularly represented by Teddy Roosevelt, finally transforming into the hidden (and not so hidden) socialist movement, with its culture-transforming and dictatorial nature best represented by FDR (and his openly communist wife, Eleanor). In the judicial realm, it was Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes who transformed the nature of American law from the aim of upholding a position of content, namely the protection of individual rights, to a content-free requirement of law so that law was open, at every moment, to the democratic will of the people. From there the government of the largely unconscious people, focused on the After Life, could be infused with the content, the aims of socialism. This was accomplished in the notorious case Lochner vs. the United States. (See http://www.objective standard.com for a good discussion.)
      So, today, when America stands at the precipice of collapse, of imitating the dictatorships of the 20th century, we do definitely need a politics of strength with which to replace both the murderous Liberal/Progressive world-view of worship of the State and its Leaders and the perpetually-failed leadership of the party of the Other World.
      We need a philosophy which answers the basic questions in man’s mind and on his heart. What kind of universe do we live in? What kind of beings are we humans? What principles are needed to guide our actons so that we live well here? What principles should form our relations with others and shape our social institutions so that we and they live well here? Metaphysics, the nature of man, ethics, society, politics.
      Where will we find such a philosophy? Where can we find a prescription for the Nature of Government consistent with Man’s Rights? It does not exist in the writings of Marx or Rousseau. It does not exist in the theocracy of the Old Testament, with its animal sacrifices and stoning to death of children with active minds unable to fit into a conformist society. It has never been brought into existence during the centuries of cultural domination by Christianity or Islam.
      In all of world culture, past and present, there is only one place to point you. That is to the writings of America’s moral philosopher, the pro-reason individualist, Ayn Rand, author of Atlas Shrugged, the most inspiring novel ever written…if you love your life on Earth.
      Obama quoted the title of her book on ethics as a sneer when he sarcastically said, “I don’t know when they made selfishness into a virtue.”
      Well, African Prince and Wanna-Be Dictator of America, the moment when they accomplish that in completion of the American formula is coming sooner than you think. Which American formula? You know, the one that insists that the purpose of governmen is to secure your right to your life, your right to you liberty and your right to your pursuit of your happiness…that kind of selfishness. Call it freedom, call it responsibility for the supreme and “inalienable” value which is each person’s own life. Each life has the right to act and work in order to keep its self alive.
      A vacuum to be filled? Gentlemen, read Rand, learn the Freedom Philosophy, if you want to be one of those who makes a difference, creates a future for mankind, restores individual liberty (including freedom of religion) and fills the vacuum of the worship of the State and its ignoble leaders.
      Read, learn, enjoy!

      • Chris

        Paul, most of what you say so eloquently is correct. And I think most Christians today would rise in arms if necessary, just as our forefathers who were Christians rose in arms yesterday against those who promoted laws and restrictions contrary to God and nature. (as our forefathers worded it) The same thing is happening today in America with the gradual rise of communism disguised as the new Democratic party calling Christians and those beleiving in American roots and foundations as terrorists. It’s way past time to silence these voices if we are to preserve the truths and ideas on which this country was founded. How that is done will be determined by how forcefully good honest folk are subjected to submit to the new voices of liberalism that is shredding our morals and foundations.

      • azcIII

        Paul,
        With eloquently articulate folks like you around, there will always be hope for a brighter future. I hope you would consider running for office, as we desperately need people like you in positions of power. That is a large part of our problem: decent, moral people who truly understand the role of government within the lives of the governed don’t often run for office.

        Regarding God and His proper role in governing, religion provides a moral compass for individuals, not governing bodies. The proper role of religion in government is to guide the individual decision-maker within the framework of the rule of law. Moral people are the building blocks for moral government. We have a government corrupted by immoral people, thus, we have immoral government.

        • eyeswideopen

          Denis, you need to learn about impeachment, just because you wish it, won’t make it so. Use this internet to educate yourself.

          • Dennis

            Yes its not likely that that will happen but you’ve got to admit yes even you have to admit that this man is WRONG in what he is doing.

            ( Impeachment >> To accuse a public official of misconduct )
            Ok i will 30 czar’s opps thats 29 now ( thank you Glenn Beck for breaking the news on this Bum Van Jones )that in itself is against the Constitution of the United States of America he ( Obama ) is breaking the very rules that he has sworn to uphold, and i hope you know what it means to distroy our Constitution please tell me you do,

            The man is a Radical >> ( an extreme (liberal) in politics ) Communist (you do know what a communist is don’t you god i hope so) his Grand parent’s were members of the Communist party his mother also communist hmmmm.

            He’s turning what few friend’s we have against us and supporting Terrorist group’s like Hamus or that scum bag bum Dictator Hogo Chavez O how he loves America, do you know that he (Chavez) is on an 11 day tour to countries like Iran and many other’s to turn them against us? i doubt it

            He’s trying to weaken our military or he is, Yes F22′s cost alot but if Iran,Russia and China can afford them i think we should have a few of them hanging around to don’t you?.

          heres an idea for you dennis – call monica and tell her to blow him then you repuke’s can impeach him—– listen, your words are so TIRED and EXHAUSTED but thank you for keeping it up almost for an entire year now— this is why republicans don’t have the American vote anymore- fox news junkees like dennis -but i should thank you dennis for destroying your party, i’m so glad us true Americans, never have to see the likes of bush/cheney ever again. and let me just thank you in advance for your support of sarah and when she runs against The Presidnt of the United States of America Barack Obama. it will be one for the history books: every state in the nation turned blue for the first time in American history…ahh can’t wait to hear what you say in 2012- after you have only 5 republican seats left -in the senate at that time if your lucky – you will probably still be saying exactly the same thing you are saying about The President of the United States of America Barack Obama which you are saying today which is almost an ENTIRE YEAR LATER– try to come up with discussing the issues – o wait – i forgot – republicans don’t discuss issues which are important to the American people- sorry my mistake but thank you again- please please for the sake of democrats everywhere..keep up the good work!

      • http://firefox Bobby

        Beberoni, Amen and Amen.

  • Robin from Indiana

    I prayed daily before the election that God would put the man of HIS choosing into the White House. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was and still am that His choice wasn’t my choice. But, I also know that He has reasons for doing the things He does, and my prayers are now changing to please let a revival come from this mess; let the people of the United States get back to basics, putting God first, demanding ethical behavior from our leaders, a rebirth of morals, and common sense to take place of reckless, liberal spending. The United States has been on a slippery slope for quite some time. It’s time to stop and I really believe that the only way it could be stopped is what we are experiencing now with the current administration. I just hope most of the things that will bring our great country down can be undone….

    • http://PersonalLiberty Lisa

      Amen Robin, I couldn’t agree more!!

    • Pam

      I couldn’t agree with you more. I have told my children we suffer consequences for our actions and the American way put Obama in office, and God allows us to be punished for our actions. Obama is punishment for years of disobeying Biblical Prinicipals, Obama is a wake up call for all to see how bad things can get and will get if people don’t go back to earning a living and working as the Bible teaches us to do. Not everything in life should be given to us we have to work for it. I think that when the next election comes maybe people will be tired of seeing handout being given out and will be looking for someone with the mentality of a Sarah Palin, if you want it go after and work for it. You get a sense of accomplishment when you did something to get what you have. The concept of “all in a days work” will mean something again. God thank you for allowing the Uglyness of the United States be shown, the greediness of American people and the shame of how far we have gotten from your basic values. God please continue to Bless America in spite of us. If he hadn’t been elected it would have continued to be a slow decline and would have possibly gone unrecognized by some but with the extremity of it people who may not have noticed are taking note. Again Thank you Lord for being all knowing.

        Pam, you are one of the few who see what is happening to our country and why. America has turned from God and promoted every thing God abhors.
        Education and no sense. Pray for our country and an awakening of the Church to lead according to God’s Will and not man’s. 2nd Chronicle 7:14 is much needed todfay.

        • The Patriot

          I agree with you Carolyn. I started thinking about the power and authority the gov. will have on us if the Climate bill passes,and the Health bill passes, Its’ made me A believer in what Revelations says
          in the Bible, Lets just say you won’t need as much imagenation to forsee those prophecies come to pass, taking A days wage to buy A small slice of bread. You can and should pray for our leadership!
          But remember, there will be those whos’ prayers have already been answered and turned over to there own ways, having there conscience seared. ROM.1 just read the whole chapter. no God= no morals,ethics,principles,standards. Clearly seen thats no mystery!
          no such thing as a gay church having gods blessing. According to ROM.ch.1 And thats not my word,but gods word.

      Robin….way to go girl and so well said!!!..I agree with you and we know that speaking out does NOT make us Racist or hate mongers….Some just want to silence any discending opinions and We refuse to be silenced!!Pointing a finger at us and calling US names will not make us dissappear(sp)…If GOD brings us to it….He’ll bring us through it! We stand UNITED!…Thanks again Robin!

    • Terri Brahm

      Our country is in the hands of GOD now. The faithful see the truth in what is happening in the world. GOD is trying to get everyone’s attention. Let’s help the world wake up and start following what GOD taught us through scripture by being the disciples he has called us all to be.

    • Tom

      Robin,

      You have it exactly correct. If our founders, very religious and selfless people for the most part, could see what is happening now, they would vomit. I only recently became aware of how far off the path we had wondered when reading “The 5000 year Leap”. Our Congress is the antithesis of what our Founders represented. But on a bright note, we CAN turn this ship around: we need to educate those foolish people around us who voted for Obama based on his looks and speaking style alone and failed to recognize what a Godless shell of a narcissist the man really is. We need to threaten our Congress daily with extinction if they vote on this horrible legislation (many proposed bills by the way, not just health care reform). Voter participation and self preservation interest by Congress can shift the course we are on currently. We need to keep the pressure on constantly to keep those Marxists in the administration from succeeding.

      • eyeswideopen

        Tom, hate to hurt your feelings, but you need to check your facts, a large number of our founding fathers were atheists.

      You know, sometimes God has to let us do stupid things for our own good, just so we will learn. A good man loves discipline and learns from his mistakes. A fool repeats them. I am now praying that there arent that many fools out there.

      • Mary Roy

        I learned at a Bible class the other night, how when Pharoh of Egypt let the Israelites go, He sent them thru the dessert/wilderness, which was the long way around, even though they were provided for, they had to get to the promissed land on their own. I think that America and Americans are on a journey thru the wilderness, God will provide but there are lessons to be learned. We have disobeyed God in so many ways, and we have been the most blessed people in the planet, but we brutally took God out of our schools, our homes our lives, and if Mr. Obama has his way he will finish destroying our Christians principles, which he already denounced in a lot of his speaches. God bless America.

        • Pat Rutland

          Thank you and others for the above comments. I also prayed seriously and constantly about the elections. I just could not see how so many
          “Americans” could not see thru Obama’s facade. (I just had a gut feeling
          that something was very wrong with the countinance he was displaying.
          Immediate thoughts of “anti-Christ” kept crowding my mind.)
          I don’t remember where I read or heard it but–Obama’s mission, as a
          true Muslim, is to destroy the United States from within. He, and his
          Muslim constituents; both here and abroad will do anything and every-
          thing in their power to may it happen.
          “Oh what a tangle web we weave when once we practice to deceive!
          Obama has deceived every American Citizen, of which he is not legally.

      Robin, well said, I’m also hoping that our Christian values will come back into the moral fabric of America. We should always be able to disagree, but hatemongering, and lying to try and sway people is not the way Jesus would approve of. Us Christians need to understand that we are always judged by our actions, words and deeds. It is very disappointing that the Christian faith is losing members. After participating in these blogs, I can see why people think we are hypocrites, we speak the words of hypocrites.

      • dickie

        I like other people that refuse to comment on your stupid blind thought’s.But ot is funny that you say hate & blind, When you refuse because you are to arrogant,To atleast turn away from your state own media,To even look else where for the truth,Do like everybody else with their eyeswideopen,In America turn to the FOX NEWS That is if you are not to blind,Please just try it & not be pissed off that you realize that you & we are being lied to every day by this trash we put in office,Yes even your own friend baker,I am sorry you will find out we don’t hate we are tired of being robbed,Lied to,& losseing our freedom,to terroist & a muslum.Don’t be scard to learn the truth,It is not to late.

          • billy

            Van Jones is out of a job. why ? because he said “republicans are as*holes” What if he worked for the bush regime and he were saying this about democrats? what would republicans do then? what would you republicans who are in here say? you would stick up for him and then i bet the all holy god lady who posts here (the one who told her children obama is the antichrist) she’d praise god for this man because he was speaking out. and if the all holy god lady is reading this i’m just curious as to what you told your children about george bush and dick cheney or did you just have the children pray for them to continue doing a great job. ~unbelievable~

          you say to try it- well how bout you try PBS news or BBC AMERICA- you might learn something instead of being brainwashed into all of that bullsh*t which is fox news——- i know you probably have the mindset of ABC, CBS , and NBC being “those liberal media outlets” because that is what faxe news tells you to believe—–so please try PBS or BBC AMERICA news..

    • Dennis

      Heres what needs to happen to get the change ( THE REAL CHANGE ) in the USA, THIS COUNTRY, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA started >> VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE in 2010 to put this crap ADMINISTRATION OUT of office and let them know why ( alot of them are up for vote in 2010 ), an then in 2012 VOTE HIM OUT ( Obama ), and before you vote again look at who you are voteing for and what they stand for.

      In all that i have been reading Obama is not for America or it’s freedom ( Obama said change change change he did in less than a week after he won, one of the change’s was no more lobbyest in WDC down with the lobbyest look for yourself and see how many HE put into power just in one week after his election or tried to most of them were to corrupt but they were his choices )

    • NoTingles

      Robin,
      It’s sorry to see that it takes the events of the last year to shake us out of stupor and into reality. When human beings begin to deny that “It’s all about God”1, that’s the day that humanity begins to unravel. We’ve had roughly 6,000 years to get it right, and although we have made such wonderous strides in advancement of ‘science’ we somewhere along the way lost the humility to give thanks for all that science truly describes is the work of the Creator. Secular humanism chooses to worship itself, and thereby devolves into insanity. We see the result and it is a beast unleashed that threatens to bring down all of civilization. It is a God-less beast- the spawn of Hell.

      I want to remind all those who think they are so much more rational and intelligent because they refuse to believe that God really is the Author and King of all creation, that He gave us 10 perfect laws. And then we in our superior wisdom came up with a bunch of other stuff, as if, we mere humans could one-up the Creator. We now see the mess of our own causing all around us. Yes, 10 perfectly good laws that if followed will more than adequately protect our inalienable rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness…true happiness not dependant on worldly pleasures. And you know this is right because before there were any of the religions we see today, those rules were in effect for millenia. He said to follow these laws. He didn’t say anything about setting up three branches for checks and balances and then we have to establish a bicameral legislature full of greedy pompous windbag hypocrites followed by a panel of judges populated by a bunch of bitter old men (and one wise latina) to rule on what the law says. No. Ten laws. Follow them and we’re good, right? It doesn’t matter what your religious branding is, these laws work. They have never been known to fail. It’s man who fails when he allows temptation to disobey them. And that failure has produced a history that is full to overflowing with human misery, and injustice, poverty, insecurity, and almost total lack of human compassion and care. Is this what we wanted? Americans know that isn’t right.
      Good Night America. Close your eyes, think about how bad it is, and how badly you want it to be right and say, “Lord have mercy”

      1: Father Thomas Hopko on “The Abolition of Man”

    • Nanette

      Robin you said it beautifully and to the point. I also prayed before the election and said Dear Lord how could you let this man win. I also believe He has a plan for this country. The people in this country need to realize that when you take God out of the picture, evil walks right in!!!

      It is quite possible this country may need to loose the blessings God gave us before we can appreciate again what we once had.

      May God have mercy on all of us and may God Bless America.

      Nicely said, Robin. I agree with you – I believe God put the

      people to (finally) come together, pull together, and get our
      great nation back to sanity. Please note I purposely did not
      use the term “our president” because I have not acknowledged him
      as “my” leader.

  • mrbenz7

    I agree with an above post. What will replace Liberalism? While I’m all in favour of liberalism having it’s last gasp of air trying to grab power, I’m also not one of these conservatives who centre’s their philosophy around banning gay marriage either! Let’s keep marriage between one man and one woman, but grant Civil Unions to those couples who want them with some legal benefits, like power of attorney. I’m currently a Republican, but I’m a Log Cabin Republican and I believe in free markets, financial responsibility, a strong military and homeland security and protecting our hard won freedoms that many thought it honorable to fight and die for! I’m hoping to replace Liberalism with Education, Civil Pride, Duty to country and community defending America, Responsibility and most of all, Common Sense including enforcing our laws!!

    • DaveH

      MrBenz,
      Try the Libertarian party. They are the only party that has stuck to their Limited Government platform throughout the last 3 decades.
      For their platform:
      http://www.libertarianparty.org/platform

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        I want to Dave, I really do, but I do need to see some respectable faces come up there in that party. Ron Paul has some really good ideas, but he comes across as shaky to me. His ideas are good, but his presentation of himself at the debate left a lot to be wondered about, at least as far as my opinion is concerned, and it is just that, my opinion, doesnt mean Im right or wrong. But a guy like me that is on the line ready to jump there, I need a candidate that will make me want to jump in, and he didnt do it.

        • DaveH

          Beberoni,
          It is hard to sell the Libertarian brand of freedom to people who have been propagandized for many decades by the people in power. They have a vested interested in retaining that power (people in both major parties) and they use any scare tactics available to keep that power. I have a very intelligent cousin that lives in the San Francisco area. He is anti-gun, anti-business, and very Liberal. But in that area of the country, it is difficult to be exposed to non-liberal ideas, so I don’t fault him for his politics.
          The kind of freedom that Libertarians seek is very scary to those who have been convinced over the decades that they need government’s help throughout their life. I think Prohibition might be a good example. Once in place, what did it really accomplish? Organized crime was enriched. Those people who wanted to drink found ways to get liquor anyway. Of course the size of government grew. Then after it was abolished, did everybody become alcoholics? Of course not. The drugs are a problem now mostly as a result of their high price which is the result of their illegality. And again we are enriching organized crime (the very worst segment of society) and as we all know ‘money is power’. Look at the mess in Mexico. Added to that is the corruption that is rampant among the drug-warriors (DEA, ATF, etc.). Furthermore, the government has used (still is) the drug problem as an excuse to take away our Constitutional rights.
          I don’t know if you’ve seen this link, but the book (even though 30 years old) gives a good treatise on the Libertarian philosophy:
          http://mises.org/rothbard/foranewlb.pdf
          Due to political realities, I doubt that we could ever achieve pure Libertarian principles as outlined in the book. But at least we can use those principles to strive for greatly reduced government involvement in our lives.

          • David

            Dave, if the right independent (like a well rounded business man) came up the middle; we would vote for him or her. We have a broken system and need it fixed.

      • eyeswideopen

        Dave, I voted for Ron Paul in 1988 and I don’t think he has, as Sarah would say” progressed the party”. You need someone with the financial astuteness of Mitt Romney, and the speaking ability of Obama.
        Obama’s transparency is the first step that all politicans need to govern by, then we have the ability to really see what’s going on.

        • DaveH

          Eyes,
          I have made this comment before, but I’ll try again. The problem we have is that voters want this saint-like human that is also all-knowing because the voters have been raised with this strange idea (to me at least) that government should care for their every need. Of course no such human exists, so we get liars and sneaks for our leaders. They have to lie to get elected, because nobody could really stand up to this ideal image of a politician. The Libertarians believe that, for the most part, people need to take care of themselves, with government involvement only when those people are the victims of force by another. So, Libertarians don’t need that perfect human as politician because he/she wouldn’t be micromanaging our every life decision.

          As far as Obama’s transparency goes, he is only transparent by accident, as many/most of us can see right through his charade.

          • Dennis

            Rite on brother,
            Obama is so full of Corruption that his $hit should be put under arrest when it come’s out of hie mouth.

          • eyeswideopen

            Dave, so what you are saying is that voters, want a saint like person, is that why you all are so unhappy with Pres. Obama? Because he isn’t saint like enough? Gez, I can’t think of any Pres. who measures up to that description. Can you?

    • Pam

      Marriage should not be taken lightly, if someone wants to give power of attorney to someone else they can write a will, or last will and testament. You can grant whomever you want many things in a living will. So there are plenty of options for them and there is always the option of getting married to someone of the same sex if they want the benefits of being married.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      And hopefully, people will not again be so gullible that when some new guy or gal comes yelling “Change-Change-Change”, that people will choose to educate themselves as to who this person is, what they stand for, and what new ideas they bring to the table. Unfortunately for all of us, that didnt happen this time, as this candidate did not and still hasnt revealed to us exactly who he is and where he comes from, he has not presented any new ideas, just the same old democrat handbook of handout after handout at the taxpayers expense, and he has never put forth any kind of new ideas or plans about what to do, just spend spend spend like every other politician does. It is scary that the mass public is that gullible to vote for someone like this that they know and knew exactly nothing about. I too, hope we have learned from our mistake, as a people. I of course, remain innocent of electing this loser to office. I did my homework, and he scared the living hell out of me with his secrecy, with his in-experience, his muslim connections, his mob connections, and his lack of knowledge. The left wing puppet.

  • LAS

    Our compass has us pointed in the wrong direction! It appears even the sheep are getting nervous?

  • Jon R

    Get real , destroy liberalism, not a chance and if you ID the power part of this it is obvious it is fascism. The maneuvering is to destroy freedoms and create power base. It is this minority’s job to force us over to this freedom killing form of government “for our own good”, but these power brokers know just exactly what they are doing and why. No body wants to say it but this is exactly the path to power that Hitler ascended on.

    • DaveH

      I agree Jon; we need to use this awakening of American voters to push hard to get back the principles of freedom. And a good place to start is the public school system which is indoctrinating our children. This battle is far from over as the Republican Party has strayed far from the Constitution themselves. Personally, I am afraid that the number of people benefitting from the growth of government has achieved almost critical mass. So, the rest of us are going to have to work extra hard to turn back the tide.

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        You are correct Dave. Our schools are run by the liberals, even our so called schools of higher learning, where things such as banning Bible study, but mandating reading of the Koran are taking place all over this country. They are changing history books in school to read as they want our kids to believe, and so many families arent doing their jobs raising their kids, they let the schools do it, and the schools know it, and like you said, they are indoctrinating further democrats daily, to strive for mediocrity, as those that succeed are punished and those that fail are rewarded. This is the dumbing down of America that the democratic party has been doing for years, and its sad that when people grow into adults, they cant get intelligent enough to know they were hoodwinked. What a shame.

        • American Citizen

          As a 75 year old who voted for the first time at the age of 21, still wet behind the ears, I voted Democrat because my parents did. But after a few years, I matured and realized the Democrat party was changing into something I could no longer agree with. So I registered Republican, only to become a disillusioned with it some years later. Then I became an Independent and vote for the person, not the party. I’ve even voted for some Libertarians.
          I had Obama’s number the first time I heard him speak. He made my skin crawl and that’s always a sign to me that that person is up to no good. I tried to warn others about the snake selling snake oil, but I don’t know how many listened. I do not see the charisma nor the “great speaker” in him. He preaches at us in a somewhat strident voice that irritates the heck out of me. As I know what he’s going to say before he says it, I don’t listen to his speeches. I also knew him for what he is as they say, “Birds of a feather flock together.” All you had to do is see who his friends and acquaintances were to know him for what he is. 2010 and 2012, you can’t come too quickly.

  • Ron Borchardt

    Do I need to spell this out?

    Unemployment is at 9.6 %
    My retirement has disappeared.
    My employer has laid off workers.
    No increase in wage is expected or anticipated.
    Yes, I am relieved to have my job at the end of the week.
    My expenses have not gotten smaller or plateaued.
    This is a terrible time to increase my life costs:
    Electricity, Insurance, Homeowners association dues,
    health insurance, tolls, gas, groceries, renewal fees, registration fees, sales taxes, school uniforms, mega school supply lists, fund raisers, and it is a terrible time to “Special assess” for runoff water control, fire station closings, garbage collections, sidewalks, roadways, parks, schools, traffic control, law enforcement, intersection cameras, right of way maintenance, and mosquito control.

    I want the world to be a better place but I cannot afford to pay for the improvement.

    I have a desire to allow children of the world to be raised by their parents in healthy environments but not at a cost to my children.

    I do not want to raise budget short comings through increased law enforcement efforts.

    I do not want additional expenses around the world when I cannot afford home.

    I cannot pretend things are fine
    even if that is what is being reported on the six o’clock news.

    I need to have the spending stopped at the Federal level and at the State level and at the County level.

    I need a freeze on all creative government ways to generate revenue.

    I need all efforts on reducing spending, and no effort “invested” in how to get more money out of my pockets.

    We need to implement dramatic measures of refocusing our attention from the world to our nation.

    Our example must prevail, we are unable to buy change with money that we need at home.

    We need to bring home our service men and women. Close down our foreign bases, embassies, government offices, and stop all funding of foreign governments, programs, and peoples.

    Foreign aid needs to be replaced with self improvement.

    World leadership needs to be replaced with self preservation.

    The worst investment is in your own failure and demise.

    Our security is threatened by our desire to be worldly at all costs.

    We have abandoned the needs and desires of our citizens.

    The cost of buying foreign friends and maintaining power has out grown its source.

    Leaders fail to understand who they lead.

    Nobility in government has grown with self serving egos attempting to create legacies of benevolence on the backs of a population
    that is enchanted with ideas that are self defeating.

    I want to restore America, focus on America, strengthen America, and build America.

    This is the change I want to see, American leadership not global leadership asperations.

    I want funds staying home, so that the traffic enforcement officer can become a trusted friend who trades in their stealth radar entrapment efforts for public service of fighting crime.

    I want the world to know America does have a brain, standards, principles, rights, privileges, goals, plans, and value

    I do not want anyone or anything outside of America funded by American tax payer dollars.

    I do not want our young men and young women dying for something that is undefined and not American.

    The world can benefit from Americas wake or not at all.

    The time is now to have the world emulate America.

    And for America to be worthy of the world wide respect.

They dont like us, why stay and protect them? Ive had enough of them. Cut them off now.

      • eyeswideopen

        Berb, we aren’t in foreign countries to protect them, it is usually a base for us to be able to, attack from or rescue our citizens in trouble. Don’t think we are so noble that we are just there to protect them. We are there to serve America’s interests!

      Now is the time for the world to emulate America? Are you kidding me? America just barely avoided a depression, we almost caused the economies of the world to fail, as they based their stock markets on ours and purchased our fraudulent bundled mortgages. We attacked a country using faulty information causing an imbalance in the middle east and now are trying to right our policies for: immigration, education, energy, finance, torture and health care. At this time, America, whose people are fighting each other over who deserves to be healthy and what constitutes torture cannot and should not be emulated by any country.

    Robin, Obama was not God’s choice, he was the people’s choice, they voted for him and God gave them what they wanted. Just like He will allow people to go to Hell, it’s their choice. Do you really think God would put such a wicked man in authority? Besides you know who the Bible tells us the father of a liar is! The Godly people in America have set back on our seats of do-nothing and let the ungodly take us over, we have not stood up for what is righteous and holy. We swallow ANYTHING/EVERYTHING and have become complacent. We allow the the Godless – the abortionists – the homosexuals to dictate to the us what we can and cannot do! We now have a godless, evil man as president and godless, evil cronies that have been elected and re-elected by the people, destroying us. Why did God allow it? I think I’ve answered my own question.

      There are some people that make sense. The fact that this demon was elected in the first place was beyond me.

      I would have to agree with you, Theresa. What good can come from this godless man being elected? More abortions? More gay “rights”? Liberal godless people with no morals as leaders? What a mockery! I don’t think God had a thing to do with it.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      Because God allows us free will, things like this happen. It is written, that the earth is the devils playground. Satan is the prince of the world you know. Its not Gods playground, its Satan’s. He is the one in control of it, for now. His defeat is allready set in stone and cannot be changed, but he rules the earth and has corrupted many, and many are his followers. A lot of us Christians that you may consider passive, are really not. We just know that all in all, God is in control, and all things must pass before He comes again, including the fulfilling of all the prophecies in the Bible. Are they are all fulfilled, except for the revealing of the evil one, and the judgements. I really dont think it is far away, but Gods time is different than ours. It could be today, maybe tomorrow, next year, 10 years or 100 years, I dont know. But I know I know Him, and Im ready for Him to come anytime. Until then, I will stand up and be strong and do the right things He has instructed me to do. But it is written, all authority on Earth was placed there by God, therefore abide in it. As long as its legal. So I do believe God place this guy there, and if for nothing else, as a wake up call to us to pay attention to this stuff, and get educated about it. There were an awful lot of uneducated people that pulled the Obama lever in 2008, and a lot of people that wouldnt have pulled it, that didnt get off their lazy butts and vote. I think after seeing how much this guy and his admin have flushed us down the toilet in less than a year, America has woken up. Im hearing the rumblings about him and the democrats from coast to coast, and even they are pissed off about it. Hang in there, they all are leaving in 2010 and 2012, and then we can start having prosperity again.

        Tatyna, No the man’s “posture and speech just reeks of arrogance”. people are upset that a black man has good posture and can speak correct english. But they will state over and over again, that they aren’t racist, they hate that word as it is the best word to describe them… So, Guess they want a stooped over guy, who can’t speak well. Nothing can beat that except a pretty one, who isn’t educated, has no concept of world or domestic affairs, who doesn’t use correct english, but can rally the troops.
        Since racist bothers them, we should start using the word: PETTY which means:of contemptibly narrow mind or views, spiteful, mean, insignificant in quantity or quality. Let’s face it, only petty people will find a way to attack someone on every level.

It probably didn’t really matter as enough Republicans were tired of the out of control spending by our party, so they took action and left this party.

        • Michael

          Eyes, your claims of being a Republican sounds disingenuous. Are you a Arlen Spector type Republican? I am also disillusioned with the GOP since they have done little to enforce imigration laws. However, it has not driven me to the left as you apparently have been. In the above post you speak in flattering terms about Obama’s posture and oratory skills while bashing the former Potus. What does looks and speech have to do with it anyway? Your remarks are very shallow. How would you justify your above statement to Steven Hawkins? A world renowned physicist without the ability to speak on his own and has been confined to a wheel chair for most of his life. Should his value, his intelect too be judged by superficial appearances? I would vote for Yoda the Jetti Master if I thought him qualified. A green skin humanoid of short stature and scratchy dislexic dilect. Of the multitudes of reasons that I dislike Obama, race and outward appearances has nothing to do with it.

          • eyeswideopen

            Michael, you didn’t read the post from Dave, stating that the Presidents, posture and speech proves he is arrogant, I will defend anybody, when someone concludes that a person is arrogant,simply because they are well spoken and have good posture. I am an angry Republican, who trusted in my party to have morals, ethics and fiscal responsibility. My President (Bush) admin, tried to hijack the Constitution using the Patriot Act and numerous other legal manuvers (torture), spent a surplus and left one of the biggest deficits in the history of this country, and we don’t accept any responsibility for any of it.
            And you brought Steven Hawkins into this why? That is the type of person I am fighting for.
            I have been a repub for 42 yrs, and I am frightened by the radicals that belong to this party… but I will speak up because I do love this party and have participated in trying to make it better. If this parties radical fringe doesn’t frighten you, then hate mongering, lying and denial have become commonplace and you must endorse this kind of behavior. Why can’t Republicans accept that not all of us are just followers who accept illogical ideas, and were raised to accept responsibility for our actions. Every single Congressman who was in office during the run away spending spree should be voted out. But us repubs, won’t do that, heavens no, we have hang on to what ever little power we have left and lets tear this country apart and promote American on American violence. Read the blogs,

      • DaveH

        Tatyana,
        Sorry to disappoint you, but many people believe Obama’s Harvard education was paid by a Saudi advisor, Dr. Khalid al-Mansour. His own book states that his roommates were Muslim. He has refused to release most of his historical records. And Obama said that his administration was going to be ‘transparent’. So who knows what the truth is? As often as I’ve seen him change his mind on campaign promises, my inclination is to believe his opponents.
        One man in Phoenix who was carrying an ‘assault rifle’ was a black man. 90% of black voters chose Obama for president. In these times when the gun-haters are doing everything they can to disarm us, it would be hard to believe that a gun-lover would be so stupid as to attend a presidential rally with an assault rifle. There is little doubt in my mind that the guy was an anti-gun dirty-trickster.

        • eyeswideopen

          Dave I already gave you the answer to the black man with a gun,,, you are really something else. Sounds like you are mad that someone may have paid for Pres. Obama education,,, which is a myth, but it sure does bother you,, are you mad cause it is Harvard or that he is well educated?. Jealousy is a terrible thing.

  • COMMON SENSE

    Thank you, Chris, for the optimism – we really need it. It appears that Americans are starting to wake up and realize that we need to stand up and demand our “representatives” do what we elected them to do.

    What we have been witnessing is classic of the left’s tactics throughout world and US history – use crisis conditions (which, in most cases – certainly this one – THEY have created) to promise reform and better conditions for all – then usurp their power to forward their own agenda. All the while, steering OUR tax dollars to their loyal and already rich contributors.

    Unless WE force the issue, the crew in Washington and the State houses will NOT attempt to make things better – they will continue feeding the fire, because they need US to be scared enough to follow them like sheep, and allow them to continue. No good will come from their agenda, and people are beginning to see that.

    I believe that Americans need to realize that this is NOT a Democrat vs. Republican vs. Independent issue – WE have been sleeping while our elected representatives have been raping and pillaging our country and our RIGHTS. You want your government to be ACCOUNTABLE?
    YOU HAVE TO MAKE SOME NOISE ABOUT IT.

    WE need to force the restructure of our governing bodies (term limits and line item veto), so that we can get rid of those who betray our trust, stop feeding them and their greedy friends, and eliminate their wasteful programs.

    Speak out, send letters and faxes demanding we be represented, and protected (strong national defense), demanding fiscal responsibility, and VOTE these idiots OUT!

    If we allow this insanity to continue, they WILL bankrupt our country, chaos will ensue and the US will be wide open to tyranny … and our enemies.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      How did the liberals get ahold of the media? Well, for years the democrats have lied to the people, and told them through the media that the democrats are for the poor and middle class, and the republicans are for the rich. But if one chooses to educate themselves, and look into the truths of things, one would find out that the democrats own ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC, and that these news media outlets are a propaganda wing of the democratic party. On a whole, the most wealthiest people in the world are democrats, and they have far more money than those who are republicans. This is why I dont understand, how the black in America are considered by most to be a poor minority, and 90 percent of them vote democrat. Yet the democrats have never done a thing for them, but give them a small handout and keep them down “in their place” as guys like Robert Sheets Byrd used to refer to them. Yes, a black democrat is president, but the democrats didnt assign him that position, the people did. What else have they done? Republicans appointed Colin Powell to a high post, and Condoleeza Rice to a high post. They nominated Clarence Thomas and the democrats tried to ruin his life. The republicans under Lincoln freed the slaves, while the democrats fought it. The republicans headed up the civil rights cause, while the democrats fought against it. So why the blacks vote for these leeches I do not know. And I wont call you African Americans, simply because you have less to do with Africa than I do. I mean come one allready, Im not a European American. Im white, and my ancestors came from Africa. Am I an African American, no. More than most blacks here in the states, but I would not be allowed to use that classification, even though I am more African than 90 percent of the blacks here in this country. And this African American white boy aint voting for no Barack Obama just because he is black. That is a racist thing to do.

To be able to run all those things, there must be about 200 million of them by now. That is how threatened they feel. I told them to look up the fortune 500 it would make them feel better, but they just don’t believe it. What can you do?? They don’t have the power now and it scares the crap out of them.

          Don, NBC is a subsidiary of General Electric whose CEO is a man named Jeffrey Imelt. GE stocks have plummetted since Imelt has been in charge mostly because of the biased one way endorsement of Obama before and since the election. They are so in the tank for Obama that you can purchase pro Obama T-shirts in their corporate office lobby. People watching their brodcast wanted more than one side reporting so they have moved to other venues for more fair and balanced coverage.

          CNN was founded by Ted Turner, a self proclaimed Liberal who sold out to Arabs. Now Saudi Nationals own controling interests in the company.

      Drop the “where is the birth certificate” nonsense.
      That is not an issue. The question I ask. Is Barack Obama a terrorist within the United States government? Because he is president should not exempt him from srutiny by the FBI or The CIA, an agency he is attempting to destroy. There are a lot of telltale signs that this theory(only a theory) exists. Bowing to a King, then denying it. Reaching out to known terrorists! Closing Gitmo and moving terrorists to American soil(prisons)! More troops to Afganistan? Trillions commited to spending, socialised health care(not real health care reform)which includes $540 billion in cuts to Medicare(affect MC Advantage plans and seniors). Ignore the oath he took with his hnd on the bible upholt The Constitution and to protect America and Americans.
      I do not see a commitment to preserve the American way of life, just a commitent to force feed his agenda onto the American people and quiet or eliminate his foes with whatever means possible including attempting to alter or change The Constitution.

      • eyeswideopen

        Medicare advantage is costing us 13% X45 million people as it gives Big Pharma a non negotiated contract. In case you didn’t know the Pharmaceutical industry is more profitable than the oil industry. For the past five years it has been making 200billion in profits per year. It also gives IBM a 400million dollar subdidy for 6 years to cover IBM’s retired seniors. Too many more companies to mention got the same sweet deal. So, you and I are paying for IBM’s retired employees pharmaceutical needs. What is wrong with this picture? Everything. Us Republicans screwed up when we passed this in 2003, and failed again, in 2006 when the White House revised the cost stating it had gone up to 1.2 trillion, when we didn’t go back and repeal it, or at least adjust it.

            I don’t. I want to reform, revise, reduce, make more efficient government, means more people who truly need help will get it at reduced costs, we can never give up our “Christian” concept of compassion for others. The “great societies” that failed, failed to take care of the elderly, young and middle class. The rich, grew so greedy that all compassion was dispelled. I want COMMON SENSE to reign in our government, I believe more civilians need to serve on every budget committee in the state, county and federal levels, they will ask questions and help reduce cronyism, theft and fraud. Laws need to be gutted and new easier stricter laws invoked. It is too complicated when someone with a high school education cannot read or understand a law. We need major changes everywhere in our government. It has gotten this way due to people like me just voting and sitting back not participating in an active way… Well just look at what my Party did for you during the Bush admin… doesn’t make me proud at all,,, I am dismayed, they broke my trust and my heart and definately broke my bank.account..What happened to them stopping the Liberals??? Oh hell yea, they became the liberals in sheeps clothing.
            America was hoodwinked by us Republicans.
            I feel the only way to reign in Insurance companies is by the public option. The utility companies have a public service commission who regulates them,,,but their is no way to control the insurance industry. except with competition.
            My own insurance just went up to 710.00 per month. I can’t work, have a few med issues and I am wondering how am I going to pay 8500 a year. My deductible is 3000.00 for hosp. and I pay all drs visits out of pocket, all tests out of pocket, I really only have catastrophic coverage, recently disgnosised with type 2 diabetes, now I can’t get any new coverage. Hubby healthy as horse, self employedd, coverage just went up 137% as he just turned 50. His will be 599.89. Between us we will be spending 15,600 per year for coverage and we aren’t old yet. This amount of money is hurting us, I can just imagine a younger family. Insurance is a monopoly and has unfair pratices.

            I base my comments on what I beleive and a “gut” feeling I get from the comments I hear from police officers, firemen, buisness people, and other websites(MSNBC’s Newsvine). Every site blog has Liberals crying “8 years and Bush, rednecks, racists, stupid…constantly name calling and finger pointing”, and Conservatives blaming “Obama and his cronies”.
            The blame falls on The American people for ever allowing our country to become what it is today. We have to fix it! Obama’s agenda doesn’t include the freedom we have been accustomed too.

In the last year, after retirement, I started paying closer attention to what has been going on in America. Like most Americans, I just complained amongst friends and associates. I don’t support the war in the middle east, although I supported removing Saddam Hussein and I certainly support the fight against terror.
            What I don’t support is a man with 8 years of political experience and a 100% voting record for gun control. His close association with the Reverand Wright should have been a flag to the voters. Since the election, the administration has moved in a direction that resembles fascism. He has comtinued to support AIG, ACORN, Fannie Mae, Freddi Mac. The Banks, takeover of GM and Chrysler…socialized health care. His appointments have been suspect with tax problems, social disorders and a deaf ear to mainstream America. His stimulas and budget spending aren’t improving or creating jobs in America but taking us further into the bowels of financial destruction. The desire to prosecute the CIA interrogators, bring terrorists onto American soil. Now he wants to send more troops into Afganistan, escalate. Put a mussel on radio and media that do not support his ideas. The possible Civilian Militia that is funded and trained as well or better that the US military with recruitment of the youth of America. Statements like “we are no longer a christian nation”. He has all the earmarks of a bad man for this country and I am no longer in the minority with these thoughts.
            You can sit trust him if you like. I don’t trust

      You’re close, but please re-read Revelation. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that most of Congress and those in the White are willing workers for a certain evil biblical entity. Note, I did not limit my comments to liberals.
      It amazes me how people who poo-pooh all conspiracies never talk about ‘religious’ influences in politics. Why? Because politics is part and parcel of the oldest conspiracy in the history of mankind (the battle between good and evil). It is not possible to separate religion and
      politics in this war.
      God knows when this war will end. I don’t. In the interim, the best we can do is to keep our eyes and ears open, and try to discern who our friends are and who are our enemies. That includes ALL ‘leaders’ in EVERY church.

  • dave

    I dont like to discuss in terms of feelings but I am for this on. I do feel people are waking up to this. I feel people are starting to independently inquire facts about the situation. I feel people are starting to take a strong stand. It feels like it is us against them elitists in government, banks, top corps. I feel that we will win. It matters not on stupid party labels anymore. It has become liberalism vs statism. The only hope in the world is here in America to protect our individual rights and free our markets. I also feel like the left has turned nastier than ever which does show how infuriated they are. Its usually them that protest and push more oppression. The people that want to be left alone are woke up and the sleeping giant is asleep no longer. I also see it with my own eyes.

      • DaveH

        JeffH,
        I’ve been watching politics since I was 26 (60 now), and the one thing that always stood out to me (and I’m Libertarian with no axe to grind) was the rudeness with which Democrats conducted their debates. They have used name-calling, ridicule, and other forms of manipulation ever since I can remember. Maybe, if they had some sound ideas based on logic and morality, they wouldn’t need to stoop to those tactics.

        • eyeswideopen

          Yes, I definately want someone to quitely and with manners strip me of my constitutional right to privacy….it feels so much better, when they are nice.

            The town hall mobs as you say, are angry, because us Republican are feeding them talking points which make no sense, even to school kids.Hey, don’t like government programs, repeal them. Cancel Medicare, but no, like true hypocrites, we like that program, it works for our parents and we don’t want to pay for their healthcare ourselves, so lets keep that one, but we don’t want anyone else to have decent healthcare. We want the government to maintain the roads, airports, hospitals, schools, police, fireman, military, but we don’t want to run a government socialist healthcare plan, which they already do…do you not get the totally hyprocritial situtation?

  • TERRY

    Just prior to the presidential election, I was sitting in a resturant with a friend, discussing the probable outcome. I made a statement thus, “McCain is not even trying to win. It seems to me that they want to let the liberals gain control and mess up the country so they can have another Reagan revolution and take control of the congress and the presidency.” Well, whether or not it was intentional or just incompetence on the part of the Republican party or just a lousy candidate, the net result may be the same. We may be able to kick the bums out.

    Unfortunately, the end result may be the demise of America’s prosperity and leadership as we have known it. They should have just tried to actually win the election!

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      It isnt that McCain didnt want to win, its just hard as hell to convice the American people to vote for a 150 year old man. Had the players been reversed, to Palin/McCain, we wouldnt be in this mess we are now.

    • billy

      “Unfortunately, the end result may be the demise of America’s prosperity and leadership as we have known it.” terry this already happened- do you not know anything about THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION-

  • http://DNA Buddy

    Regardless of the optimism here, the outcome is “baked in the cake”. The recipe for big brother government was initiated in the mid 1860s and has just grown over years of “emergencies” and wars (and, of course, the “need” for collective “fairness”). There is no cure; this is a disease which is killing the host!

    • DaveH

      You’re right Buddy. But the assault on the Constitution began almost immediately after its inception. Because the truth is that it takes an exceptionally moral leader to obey the constraints on his/her power. The vast majority of the people in power are not going to restrain themselves. It is up to ‘we the people’ to do that task, by being vigilent and learned and voting those usurpers out of office.

      • eyeswideopen

        Dave, do you believe that the Constitution is a living breathing document, that our founding fathers agreed could be altered with amendments?? or do you want to only adhere to the Constitution ?

        • DaveH

          Eyes,
          The Constitution itself provides the ability to add Amendments. That is not what the term ‘living document’ refers to.
          The concept of ‘living document’ refers to the supposed ability for a Justice to interpret the Constitution based on what he/she thinks is best for current society, rather than the strict interpretation of the law. Do you want the unelected Justices to be able to interpret the law as they please? The whole basis of our Democratic Republic is that laws are to passed only by elected officials.

      • eyeswideopen

        Dave, you should be so upset with the Bush admin, the attack on our Constitution is now being documented. I expect you to be ralling against them any day now…. Oh yea, the famous Patriot Act, you keep quoting, you don’t think that took away any of our rights?? laughing out loud..

        • DaveH

          Eyes, of course it did. Didn’t you read my comments? But that is past history. I don’t dwell in the past. I do try to learn from it. Right now our problem is the far-left fanatics.

          • DaveH

            I repeat – Bush was a ‘fiscal liberal’ and a ‘social conservative’. Congress passes the laws. The president can only veto the bills. Even then, they may be overridden by Congress. For the last two years of his presidency, Congress was controlled by Democrats. Coincidentally, those were the years of the big-spending bailouts. Come on Eyes, think a little. You have such great potential, but you need to get the blinders off and do some studying (especially about economics).

          • eyeswideopen

            Dave, you seem to never acknowledge that the biggest bill passed was the Medicare Advantage bill. Why is that? Does it choke to have to type the amount of 1.2 trillion that was passed in 2003. By the Repubs, for the Repubs and paid for by all of us.

  • http://N/A Tom Downs

    Chip:

    The liberal left is not dead and won’t be dead. It is hiding behind the curtain of the Council on Foreign Relations. This is a purportedly bi-partisan organization that controls the inner workings of this country from 30,000 feet. Their overview is paramount in determining the direction of this country. The CFR is made up of many CEO’s of the leading corporations in this world. Their composite makeup is both liberal and conservative. Their common agenda is to bring down the American juggernaut as both an economic and military power. They also have a common goal of uniting all nations involved in the United Nations under a single management, or controlling group. Why just control the United States. We are just a small number of people in the context of the western world. Tearing down the economic structure of this country is being done as we speak. Government control of 60% of our economy is being done right before our eyes. Have our representatives in Congress done anything to stop them? Has the conservative side stood up and said this is unconscionable? Does it seem to be that all or many in both Houses are letting these changes go by while real Americans are voicing their opinions with grassroot efforts amongst themselves. If we listen to what our politicians tell us, we might find some answers. Hillary said, ” I am happy with my house in D. C. I live just down the street from the CFR and I don’t have to go far to get my orders. Hellooooo! Is anyone listening? Go to the CFR website and see who its members are. See what their common goals are. Does it seem that we are moving in the direction of the goals of the CFR? Does 80% of our media not report the news but what has been painted for them? And then they paint the other 20% as right wing fanatics. Does Obama and his minions believe that western Europe rather than the United States represents the true “end of history” — the tolerant, liberal and civilized state toward which the rest of humanity is painfully ascending. Are they not taking us there? Did Obama and force forget that America, with all of her problems and issues, won the cold war against Russia yet ceeded Eastern Europe and most of Asia to communism and did not win wars in Korea, Viet Nam, and is stalemated with the Taliban and Muslim extremism. Americans are different. Most Americans want God in their government. Yet the government pulls God out of our lives by taking down references to God within their institutions. Does it make sense that prior to the last election both sides of Congress wanted to give amnesty to 12 million illegals. Ninety nine percent of these illegals would be allowed to vote in the next election. They would probably vote for the party that gave them amnesty. However, that 90% or more of those allowed amnesty are of the Catholic faith. On one hand we take God out of the government yet on the other we add 12-30 million aliens to our voting ranks which are predominantly Christians. It seems America needs to take back the country from those who have put us in this situation. We need to rid both houses of Congress of those that have been in office for more than four years. We especially need to reduce the number of attorneys in both Houses. We need to make this government a representation of its citizens. We need to keep the Declaration of Independance and especially our Bill of Rights. America is a Republic not a Republik.

    • s c

      GG, part of the solution is to do something that many people will not understand – for a while. For those who think we have a so-called separation of church and state, please try and defend that idea. We do NOT have a separation of church and state. THINK! Your government is waiting for the right time to enforce the letter of the law [via 501(c)3], to PROVE that it has the right to control American churches.
      TAX THE CHURCHES! Force the government and government apologists to PROVE that we have anything close to a separation of church and state.
      Some ‘faiths’ have literally made a financial killing by having career politicians in their back pocket. The day that all American churches are TAXED is the day anyone can say and believe and PROVE that we have a separation of church and state. THINK!

      • DaveH

        SC,
        What I would like to see is elimination of all taxes other than those paid by individuals. After all, isn’t the government mandated to protect the people? And I also think each adult person should pay exactly the same amount of tax. Aren’t we said to get ‘equal protection under the law’? So, why should some of us pay more than others? I realize that this would never fly politically, but I will outline why I think it would work.
        (1) The fact that we all were paying the same amount would make everyone think real hard about government waste. They would be much more inclined to think “Do we really need that program?” if they had equal skin in the game. As it is now, a large portion of the population does not pay any taxes, so why should they care how the money is spent?
        (2) This would save Billions of dollars which are now wasted on all those complex schemes to collect taxes.
        (3) It would put the ball in the court of those who wouldn’t or couldn’t pay taxes. They would be the ones who would have to fill out paperwork or jump through other hoops to explain why they were not paying their share of the taxes. Those of us who just got the job done and paid our share would be free of the hassle.

    I believe that most Americans didn’t hear Obama correctly during his presidential campaign when he said, “I will give you change.” What he really said to the American people was “I will give you CHAINS.” Yes, we are now shackeled, a body of desparate people fighting for our freedom. And there is nobody to help us except those you see in a mirror.

    When you have an administation that over 8 years racked up larger and larger deficits with the last year 2008 at $1 trillion, with the bank bail-outs happening under GW Bush’s administration, plus all the debacles caused with the mortgages etc, it is amazing that now it is the evil Barack Obama that is ruing the country. People, you cannot run two expensive wars with 4 tax cuts, and not have huge deficits. Look at the hard facts, under Cheney America has been brought to it’s financial knees. Sorry, but those are the facts. Sometime in the very near future, America is going to have to pay for all this. This did not happen in the last 6 months folks, it happened over the last 8 years. If all the banks had been allowed to fail September 18, 2008, we wouldn’t be sitting here blaming Barack.

    • http://www.irritating.me Melissa

      uM………..NO. It DID happen in the last 7 months. You assume that everyone agreed with what Bush did in bailing out car co.s and banks. We DIDN’T. You assume that we agreed with large deficits. We DIDN’T. AND NEITHER DID OBAMA. Yet he continues to EXPAND THOSE POLICIES, instead of changing them. When will liberals stop blaming Bush and start asking “why are you taking the bad things that Bush did and ENLARGING THEM TO NEW HIGHS??”

      • DaveH

        Melissa, the notable thing to me is that those who bash Bush (he was certainly part of it) are giving the Democrats a free pass. If you look back in the Congressional record, you will see that the Democrats rarely see a spending bill that they don’t like. Yes, the Republicans were part of that, and yes, Bush should have done a lot more vetoing. But I get tired of it all being put on the Republicans.
        In the case of the Patriot Act, only 1 Democrat voted against it in the Senate. The Democrats did better in the House but Democrat Ayes still outnumbered Democrat Noes by about 2 to 1. Yet the Republicans get all the blame for that freedom-taking bill.

        • eyeswideopen

          Come on Dave, you act like the Dem’s came up with the Pat Act. It was a Republican bill, and it is bad for us citizens. Those that conceived were trying to deceive. Yes, the Dem’s where quility of supporting ‘their’ President, just like they did when voting for the war. They were conned just like the rest of us. WE were in power and came up with the Patriot Act with the help of Dick Cheney and need to accept responsibility for it. Quit making excuses for us. The only way this country is going to turn around is for each of us to take responsibility for our actions, words and deeds!!

          • DaveH

            Eyes,
            You make it awful hard to believe that you are Republican. So, you are saying that the Congressmen shouldn’t think for themselves? They should just support their president? Wow, you need to take a good political science class and learn about the separation of powers and why our government was set up that way.
            So, when they vote bad (in your opinion) “they were conned”? Like I said, “giving the Democrats a free pass”.

          • eyeswideopen

            No, I truly believe that they should think for themselves, and two of them did, Obama and Kennedy, when they voted no for the Iraq war but that gets no respect from you as you and the rt wingers just want to destroy the other party. The book you had me read, identifies this situtation to a tee, People who had power will do the darkest of things to regain it. This hatemongering and lying is a perfect example of the Libertarians biggest fear: Power in the hands of unrestrained,narcissuses, who are morally bankrupt. You should be very concerned.

        What happeneed in the last 7 months was what was needed to save the economy from copmplete destruction. Even the Wall Street Journal, hardly a liberal mouthpiece, has admitted that the economy is doing better becausue of the stimulus and the promise of stimulus. It was unfortunate that he had to do this, but it was for your survival.

        • American Citizen

          The stimulus money should have gone back to the people it really belonged to, the taxpayers. They could have paid off their credit cards and mortgages and the banks would have gotten their money. Now the banks are owning to many homes due to foreclosures. As it is, the stimulus is not working. People are still being laid off by the hundreds of thousands and foreclosures ate still taking place. The pols are trying to convince us the depression is over when it’s not.

      Why do liberals always point fingers and put blame on Bush! Yes, he has contributed greatly to a lot of todays problems. So has every administration in the last 30 years. Obama is supposed to be the guru that will solve the countries problems. The problem is, he and his cronies are taking America down the road to socialism and financial destruction. Czars belong in Russia, not The United States of America.
      Obama”s plan is plain and simple..a New World Order! Weaken your opponents strengths with deception and lies. Attempt to undermine the Constitution because it guarantees certain liberties that he took an oath to uphold but stands in the way of his socialistic agenda. Socialize America and the rest is easy. Problem with that mindset, the majority of Americans are not socialists, we are freedom minded Americans. Americans MUST do what is necessary to preserve the freedom given to us all by our forefathers who have fought and died for a better way of life.

            Eyes, 2008 ended with the national debt at about 10.3 Trillion dollars. It is now about 11.8 Trillion. Can you honestly absolve Obama from culpability for most of the 1.5 Trillion increase? And yes I know the blame really lies mostly with the Congress.

          • eyeswideopen

            Dave, well for the first time in 8 years, the war cost was included in the budget, unlike the previous admin who left it out entirely, and by the way failed to balance the budget as required by law, so that increased it by a couple hundred billion, the original Medicare Advantage cost had to be increased by almost 700 billion, which was never accounted for in the Bush budget, and the list goes on and on. So, yes, I would say most of the budget is carry over from an administration gone wild, with no accounting to anybody. If you kept two sets of books in a professional business, fraud would be the word that comes to mind the quickest. I am most confused that Bush would cut taxes for the upper class while trying to pay for two simultaneous wars. Would you take a salary cut and not get a second job when you had your expenses increased two fold? Nope, most of us finacially responsible people wouldn’t either. Party Politics had a big affect on this country. Ideology as a platform is fine, but when situtations change, doing what is required and right becomes a priorty. The American public supported him and knew that a war would cost us money, we aren’t stupid, we knew taxes would have to go up… but no, he lowered taxes for the super rich and left the rest of us holding the bag for years to come.
            So no, I am not impressed with how Bush ran this country or with the Congress who had the power but not the brains to do the right thing.

          • eyeswideopen

            Dave, forgot to mention, that I am also not thrilled that my state had to take billions in order to survive either. It is the same story here as we are Republican run and did have a drop of common sense during the spending spree that seemed to go on for too many years.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      Excuse me. Fact check. These current lepers have spent more in 8 months than the previous admin did in 8 years. Get it straight. The bank problem started with Bill Clinton making Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac money, under the tutulage of Franklin Raines and Jamie Gorelic, under the watchdog eye of Barney Frank, to lend money to people to buy house, that didnt have a chance in hell of paying it back. The banks gladly lent it out, with this Federal guarantee backing the loans, but it got so big, that the government funds for this ran out, mostly because Gorelick and Raines were writing million dollar bonuses like drunken sailors to their democratic cohorts. Bush called for an investigation 2 years before the collapse, but see, Clinton had carefully set up a watchdog committee, headed up by Barney Frank, called the oversight committee or something like that, to oversee these things. Barney said everything was cool, no investigation needed. Then of course the banks collapsed, and you all want to blame Bush. Maybe you should get educated first, and see what happened here, that is, if your going to be the model democrat and sit there and point your finger and place blame elsewhere, than where it really is deserved. And until it became clear that a democrat was probably going to win the election, Bush had the economy at an all time high. Stock market, all time high. House sales, all time high. Employment, all time high. Unemployment, all time low. Even when your stinking liberal news media said the economy was in the tank, the stock market was still higher than at any time when Clinton was president. Check your facts. Business started holding onto their money to pay the new democrat tax monsters, and soon their fears were confirmed, the dems won. Now the tax cuts are about to be rescinded, millions have lost their jobs, millions more to lose theirs, and Barack and his boys solution is to give billions of dollars to GM and Chrysler, and billions more to extend unemployment and food stamps for those that dont want to work. They have spent in 8 months what the Bush admin spent in 8 years, and that included funding a war, 9-11, and Hurrican Katrina, and those things werent cheap. So until you know the facts, shut your lying mouth and take your propaganda to Massachusetts and yell it out at somewhere like Hyannisport where people respond to liars well.

      • Jim

        Do the numbers

        Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were not the problem. If you took ALL the bad mortgages and add them up, you get a samll portion of the total problem. Perhaps a few tens of billions, maybe 100 billion. It was the derivatives that leveraged off these bad mortgaegs that got us into this. The “credit default swaps” were worthe trillions and they were a house of cards that inevitably and finally collapsed. That was the disaster. The rigtht just likes to pretend it was thhe mortgages becasue it fits into their idealogy better than reality.

        • eyeswideopen

          JIm,You are so right on target..thanks. but most people don’t understand credit defaults etc.

        • American Citizen

          Do you realize what you said? You said it was not the bad mortgages that got us in trouble, but the derivatives the leveraged off them. So, yes, it was the bad mortgages that are the problem. And still are.

      • eyeswideopen

        Beberoni, fact check dude, Obama was left with a deficit, Bush was left a surplus….do you know the difference? Ok then you know how to add and subtract. You can do it, I know you can….

    • Michael

      Ah, the last of the liberals. Defiant to the end. The mortgage crisis started with Carter and was nurtured by Clinton by strong arming banks to grant mortgages to people who could not afford them. Bush warned in 2001 that Freddie Mae and Fannie Mac (intentional dislexia)were in trouble. This of course was denied by the likes of Barney Frankless and Chris Dodd. for the next seven years they the nearly bankcrupt firms were coddled, propped up, and held together like Dolly Parton in a C cup brasseire. Then in the summer of 2008 rumors from the left began to circulate on the net of an October surprise. Then when the timimg was right, right before the election the dam broke. All this and many, many other deceptions shows that nothing will stand in the way of the Liberal agenda. Nothing that is except American Patriots.

      • eyeswideopen

        Got your facts a little skewed, 2003 Bush admin identified problems, and yes Democrat Barney Frank resisted, why didn’t they impose the correct thing? They had the power in Senate and House. 2005, new bill introduced, House and Senate failed to ratify. Where were the fiscally responsible Republicans?? I am very let down with my party. If you can identify a problem, it is criminal not to address it.

        • Michael

          Eyes Wide Open, the fact is that the Democrats were in control of the oversight commitee whose responsibility it was to regulate Fannie and Freddie. Whom despite being warned of the impending doom, declared that no changes were needed. This was a planned crisis hatched out in advance by the powers that be.

          • eyeswideopen

            Yes, Michael, I think everyone in Congress wanted this country to go into a depression and if not a depression then just one screwed up economic storm, that would financially cost them money too. Most have stocks and bonds, investment portfolios etc. Yes, the Dems sat around with the Republicans and said, hey you guys need to spend like crazy so that we can run Obama, have him win and then have every problem imaginable to solve… Yep, that was the plan.

          • Michael

            Yes, a recession/depression was the plan. Obama’s #2 Ron Emanuel said “Never let a good crisis go to waste”. And don’t worry when the Fed plans such events like the one in 1929 you can be sure Congress will receive advance notice so they may dump their stocks. That’s the way it’s done after all. Buy low after selling high. Try a little research yourself. The answers to todays questions often existed in the past for the old saying is true that “There is no such thing as an original thought” Your hero Obama is given way to much credit when in fact his tactics were borrowed from the likes of Saul Alinsky and FDR.

          • eyeswideopen

            Michael, Obama is not my hero, he is simply a man who ran against a screwed up Republican party and won. He did that with a lot of help from Republicans who could not understand how our party lost it’s way and spent like they were drunken sailors.

    • eyeswideopen

      Graeme, I’m a Republican and I tried to make those same statements, but this group will instantly brand you a liberal and a commie socialist if you even try to admit that the Republican party made major mistakes and or didn’t address certain issues at all. They are so upset at losing power, that they will lie, cheat, bemoan, accuse, deny and slander anyone who states otherwise. It is a phenomenon I never thought I would see. The supposed Christian, Fiscally responsible party with no morals or ethics left. Truly an unbelievable event in recent history. Christians without Christ. Hey, that is a good question: where are the preachers, priests, ministers? How and why do they stand by quietly while their church members spew all this hate? Doesn’t the bible speak of pretenders of the faith?

        • eyeswideopen

          Well, I happen to believe it might take a little more than 6months to fix what took 8 years, oops 12 years to create. I didn’t know that a MIRACLE was supposed to happen that quickly!! I think his first job was to prevent a DEPRESSION. Which he did, then try and get this economy rolling again, which is starting to happen.
          I am a realist. If I got custody of an out of control teenager, I wouldn’t expect to correct all those years of non-parental supervision immediately, I would assess the worst problems and then slowly address the most critical ones which could or would endanger the childs life. I would not expect him to be the perfect or near perfect child in 6 months time.

          • DaveH

            As I have said before, Bush was championed by the Liberal Media in the Republican primaries. For some dumb reason, Republicans have allowed non-republicans to vote in their primaries in some states (maybe all by now). So they get the watered-down Republican candidates. He is a social conservative and a fiscal liberal. He is far-left from the traditional Republican roots.
            As a Libertarian, I find it much easier to put up with the Republicans’ obsession with vice-crimes, than to put up with the Democrats stealing my hard-earned money.
            And I have never heard politicians of either party take responsibility for their own messes, so I doubt that the Democrats will ever take responsibility for their mess no matter how long they are in office. You have to have your head pretty deep in the sand to think that government can spend us into prosperity. If that worked, there wouldn’t be a poor country in the world.
            Just keep wishin’ and hopin’, maybe a Genie will pop out of that bottle.

          • eyeswideopen

            I am surprised that you who understand economics so well, doesn’t get that the government had to spend to prevent a depression. Not my opinion, but the consensus of the World leaders, economic experts, and history.

          Dave, if I bashed the Dem’s I would be acting like the rest of you, who can’t or won’t even admit that these problems are ours, brought on by us and need to be fixed by us. I will assist the Dem’s in any way I can, to nullify my bad judgement in voting and my complacency when it was obvious that my party was out of control. I did nothing, what did the rest of you do to stop the insanity??
          We are not our parties, we are Americans first, we are responsible to and for each other. I could give two shits, who caused this,except it could happen again if we don’t admit it and prevent it by voting out of office everyone who was there and making better laws to protect those who invest in this country.

            Katrina is a worn out analogy. New Orleans, Louisiana at the time was presided over by a Democratic Governor and Democratic Mayor. The mayor had access to hundreds of school buses which could have evacuated thousands to safety but did not take advantage of this resource. And just how is it that a hurricane is the fault of any President? Bush is out of office now and this mess belongs to Obama. Your next worn out talking point may well be that Obama inherited this mess and I agree that certain things were passed down to the new President like a lower defecit than we have now, lower unempoyment than we have now,etc.,etc.

            That’s funny Michael (really). I do appreciate that most religious people are really trying to improve. Even though most of our forefathers were deeply religious (right or wrong) they had direct experience with real religious persecution. That is why they were keen to protect even ‘wrong’ people like me from government power. The Republicans would be well-served to take religion out of politics and focus on the real problems in this country. Most of those problems have been created by a self-serving oversized government which has been built ever larger by both major political parties.

      • DaveH

        And why does money buy the elections? Because the majority of voters won’t make the effort to dig for information and think before they vote. All the expensive campaign ads in the world can’t make you vote for anyone you don’t want to vote for. In the case of Democrats, they are too blinded by their lust for OPM to think about who they vote for.

    As quoted by: Dr. Krauthammer‏

    Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to
    Washington to make something
    out of himself, but rather to change everything, including
    dismantling
    capitalism. He can’t be straightforward on his
    ambitions, as the public would
    not go along. He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the
    playing field with
    income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of
    society. He would like
    to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada .
    He has
    surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No
    one around him has
    ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and
    run the auto,
    financial, banking and other industries. This obviously
    can’t work in the long
    run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he’s a far-left
    secular progressive bent
    on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but
    will govern from the
    hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.
    Obama doesn’t really see himself as President of the United
    States , but more as a
    ruler over the world.. He sees himself above it all, trying
    to orchestrate and
    coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees
    moral equivalency in all
    cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a
    prime example of how he
    sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been
    arrogant, rather than a
    great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is
    the first President
    ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

You need to know what is being changed and what it is being changed into or you pay a steep price. As you all can see, we cannot afford the price of Obama’s change in any way shape or form.

      I also believe he looks at everything from the color of his skin. If that makes me a racist, so be it. But I hear it come out every once in a while. Can you say reparations? When he doesn’t have that teleprompter in front of him and speaks extemporaneously, he make one gaffe after another. The true self.

He thinks I’m caring too much for the party, as I donate free time to the local Republican chairman. I also represent Repubs’ by driving the elderly to their Medicare Dr. appointments. I also work for the group who sends out our local survey forms. I belong to the Women for Republicans group in in Fl. and following my preacher’s request, I come here to be a voice for the Republicans who can’t accept that their party has been hijacked by a radical fringe. So, my husband supports everything I do, but he thinks most of these bloggers are uneducated hatemongering radicals, who would cause this party to collapse before they would ever admit we have any responsibilty for the current state of affairs. He won’t expend any emotions or energy, as he views it as a lost cause.

          Well, NBC is owned by GE. Hmmm, interesting that GE has the “behind the scenes” deals going on for the GREEN energy. You could think they may give favorable slant to this administration.

      • Dennis

        lets see who do you listen to.
        NBC = Nazi Broadcasting Channel
        ABC = AntiAmerica Broadcasting Channel
        CBS = Commie Broadcasting Station
        CNN = Communist Nations Network
        These station’s above are all for the democrats and would have a broken neck if Obama turned right to fast.

        I do listen to Fox News because they do tell booth side’s, but i also read books from our past and future writer’s to get my information maybe you should try that, if you do oooooooooowell.,

      • DaveH

        I have listened to them all for 40 years of my adult life. Foxnews has been a breath of fresh air. Instead of being sycophantic government apologists like most of the rest, Foxnews has dared to really expose the government shenanigans.
        Glenn Beck (who you Liberals love to hate) has criticized both administrations. He is Libertarian which I would think Liberals would embrace since Libertarians think you should be able to abuse your bodies any way you please as long as you don’t harm other unwilling people. Where they differ though is in your addiction to OPM.
        The Libertarians believe that you own your body and your property and nobody has the right to forcibly remove either. You liberals believe you have the right to ride on other peoples’ shoulders against their will. You whine about the past wrongs of slavery and work to impose slavery currently. You complain about the Rich, but then support a Big Government that stifles competition and impedes those who want to start their own businesses and make something of themselves.

      • JeffH

        I watch CNN, MSNBC,FOX and each one does put their own spin on the new they report…I get disgusted when the reports on Tea Parties are identified as organized by the Republican Party. I get disgusted when a 63 yo man or woman, at a town hall meeting, voices, loudly, their opiion about their fear of government and is labeled a terrorist or part of a violent mob. I get disgusted that a law abiding legal gun toting American is reported as a lunatic, which is fear mongering, and designed to create support for the anti-gun liberals. The liberal media will put their own spin on news to support the Democrats and their agenda. The conservative media will also put their spin on news to support their agenda. The differance I see is the Liberal media support is fully lined with deception AND lies. That has been a constant!
        The Conservative media support just doesn’t report the whole storyline sometimes. They are truly concerned about America though.

  • ONTIME

    This discription of failure and deciet is a planned agenda and it taken from the pages of our past, the FDR economic playbook. Everything this adminstation is doing is exactly why the Great Depression was so great and long. The turmoil of the brewing war was the key to industrial rebound and international loans that would serve to ingratiate America for several years into the future.

    We may very well be embroiled in another world war before much longer and I don’t like our chances.

    • DaveH

      And those chances have been greatly diminished by our expenditures in an effort to be the world’s police, and by our expenditures in an effort to bail out losing companies that should have been left to fail. That goes also for bailing out individuals who are perfectly capable but won’t make the effort to care for themselves.
      We need to arm ourselves to the teeth, and use our power to punish only those who trespass against our country. And get the United Nations out of our country and out of our politics.
      My answer to 9/11 would have been to find the source of the attack and then kill 3 of them for every one of ours. Then get the flock out of their country. They are religious fanatics and have been for thousands of years. We aren’t going to change them. All we can do is teach them not to mess with us.
      This would end the 9/11 type conspiracy theories also, as what would the government gain by such deception if the only recourse we allowed was swift and certain punishment of the supposed perpetrators, their trainers, and their enablers?

        At the present time, Europe is slowly becoming Muslim. I don’t understand why those countries don’t do something about their immigration policies. Don’t they understand what is happening and the goal of the Muslim people?
        There are also cells in this country that are just waiting for the right time to strike us again. Our government is letting us down in more ways that one.

        • Michael

          American, Europe is quickly becoming a Muslim ruled continent. In fact they are probably beyond the point of any return already. America is right behind them though with groups like CAIR and way to many more to mention. The Chicago political arena is thick with Arab Muslim. What a coincidence, that’s where Obama’s political career began. They also have had a huge impact on school book content. Lobbying diligently to assure that the Quran is represented in a positive way while Christianity and Judiaism are slighted.These books go into great detail outlining the aledged slaughter of the inocents by American forces in places like Vietnam and Korea while somehow leaving out the fact the Saudi Nationals flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

          • eyeswideopen

            OMG!! Europe has been taken over by Muslims the same way that AMERICA was taken over by the Dem’s!!! Do you ever check facts? Like how many Muslims are living in Europe? How many Dem’s are registered in this country? Dude you need to get off the crazy train and start researching before speaking.

            I have provided a couple of links to help settle this controversy:

            http://www.geocities.com/richleebruce/b/islam.html

            One thing I want to point out to anyone concerned about population growth of any group (or just in general). If we got the government out of social issues, so individuals were responsible for feeding their own families, schooling their own families, etc., we would be greatly reducing the incentives for many people to have large families. And, we would be doing that without treading on individual freedom. Big Government is the problem, not the solution.

            Great thoughts, Dave, but you know that the Christian Rt does not believe in birth control. Come on, you know better than to try to con us using that arguement. Besides, when we were more selfsufficient large families where why. More help on the farms and in the business’. So I’m not buying that part of your statement.

          • eyeswideopen

            Dave, thanks for the help. Attn: Michael,
            So in 91 years the Muslim population in Europe will be 25% of the total population. Right now they account for 53 million. Considering the total population of Europe is 830.4 million I don’t think they are in any danger presently of being over run as you stated.

          • Michael

            As a result of higher birth rates and imigration, the Muslim population in Europe is expected to double in a decade. This however, does not take into account the unknown effect of abortion by traditional European families in the declining years of Christianity being more widely accepted. Even at today’s growth rates the Muslim population will easily reach 20% by 2050.
            Muslim in America today only represent 1.8% yet they are having a dramatic effect on legislation. Schools in Illinois have special prayer rooms and foot baths while other religions are allowed no presence at all. School text books state that the Quran “IS” the Word of Mohamed while saying that some “BELIEVE” that Moses received the ten Commandments. “IS” is a more definite statement than “BELEIVE”.

  • 1LTLos

    to hell with liberalism classic or no- calorie! Those who bemoan the fact that soldiers are off to war on two fronts while we are left to fight the greatest fight here at home are missing the mark. These lousy cowards didnt fight ever – not Korea nor in Vietnam. But the decisive difference can be illustrated through a oral history interview that was included in the second segment “Day of days” in the production Band of Brothers. Three young men; it is reported, ended their own lives because they were 4-F Could and not serve! The sick individuals teaching your children, masquerading as school principals and those in congress -a lousy group of 542 diseased minds- are upsetting our American way of life by the vote and by the hour. I dont care to protect either germany nor france but our reasons for bases is to maintain sources and venues of re-supply. By God, the germans beat the hell out the frence in 6 weeks! They stupidly forfeit hundreds of years of culture (visit the Louvre)and spirit of the Resistance and French Foreign Legion plus their mnetary system to embrace the Euro? Imbeciles all of them now too infested with cockroach-like infestation of Shahira laws and those associated? We have every right and reason to defend our form of life from both these scumbags who have so troubled the world -since 1968-with their mindless terrorism to get our attention-After all this time, what have they offered the world besides demands or terror? Time now partners is to fight! Who is going to rise up and lead? Better realize that leader is US! You expect Harry Reid? Regardless of what the book Revelation says,I dont think God designed to take shit! Even Christ Himself upended the religious trinkets booth at the Temple. Independent, dont even mention the term Liberal, Democrat or Republican, All that is gone! We are and stand firm now as AMERICANS! Never, since the Battle for Independence, have we had so great a cause! To maintain and to restore our nation and its UNIQUE form of Governance! Socialism & Communalism are so dead! I am alive and free and thus, florish within this American system. Bind all tyrants and their tyranny!

      Sure, Let’s just kill everyone who disagrees with us. That will bring peace. Not really.
      Have you ever known a tyrant whose springboard wasn’t violence? What are we doing policing the world when we can’t even get along with each other? Violence is not the answer. How stupid would it be to give up our lives for an unknown result, when in fact we have a peaceful means of accomplishing real change. That is educating ourselves to the wisdom of our founding fathers and vote those leaders out who are ruining our country, and get us back to Constitutional law. That includes leaders of both major parties.

    I don’t see obama destroying anything because before he came into power the market was already collapsing so we got to put the blame on the former president for what is taking place with the economy right now.
    We hear people talking about socialism but we have medi- care and other stuff you must have in order to get health care. I suggest to people before printing these thinks is to listen first and then make comments.

    • Pat Rutland

      What rock have you been hiding under? Would you look at the facts? The
      trillions of dollars that have been spent needlessly in the last six
      months. Nothing Obama has initiated has worked for the good of the
      American citizens.
      The mention of Socialism is in reference to where this country is headed
      under this administration.

      • Jim

        Looking at the facts might be a good thing. This money is at least what must be injected into the economy to keep it afloat after the Bushies allowed their buddies to Madoff the whole financial industry. The lesson learned was that only large amounts of capital injection cannot stop a depression, as FDR demonstrated. It took WWII with immense capital injection to get us out of the woods. If FDR had done what Obama did, started by Bush in the only responsible thing he might have done in his entire administration, we would have been out of the depression years earlier.

        • DaveH

          Take an economics course, please. If printing extra money was the solution to a bad economy, there would be no poor countries.

          • Jim

            The proper response is not that simple minded. This is a complicated time adn with some complicated issues. It does not lend itself to simple minded homilies and idealogies that have been shown time after time not to work. Look at history and look at the data. In times of financial crisis, the only way out is defecit spending. Hoover learned that the hard way. At least Bush had enough sense to see that.

          • DaveH

            That was a very simple-minded response.

          • DaveH

            If someone cannot live within their means, do you really believe it will be better to give them the added burden of living within their means and paying back a loan? Talk about simple-minded.

          • DaveH

            Like I said “Take an economics course, please”. Spare me the burden of debating with an ignorant man.

          • DaveH

            Keynesian theories of economic enhancement via deficit spending were disproved 30 years ago when Jimmy Carter made a mess of our economy.

          • DaveH

            If you give an ignorant person a choice between free-lunch ideology and hard-work ideology, of course they will choose the free-lunch. But there is no such thing. Prosperity takes discipline, hard-work, sacrifice, the right education (whether self-study or formal), calculated risks, and informed investment.

He should be able to see that by now and go it alone. So he’s getting bad marks from me, but don;t think I’m disillusioned with his want for change, it’s just that he iis playing into the right wing’s game anad knuckleing under to lies and slander.

    I was going to rebut the falsities and half-truths of this Chip Wood’s reckless article. But you know what? NO, I’m not going to fall into the Republican media propaganda movement to muddy up the waters with this calculating and devious behavior to take away the need for real debate by the constant need of the informed individual to spend the time to correct the surmounting and outrageous misinformation. Just reading this Chip’s words of distortions illustrates the venomous tone just to vilify this President. My question what is the Republican solution to any of these difficult situations? Exactly, Republicans have NONE. I truly wonder if Republicans were in power, would many of us be living in hoovervilles type tents and walking in soup lines? My only hope that folks that subscribe to the drivel and hateful fear mongering that flows so effortlessly from this Heritage Foundation website and Fox cable news contributor find the common sense to seek the truth about the issues from real news sources like PBS television, NPR radio or websites like factcheck.org.

    It just so sad that this country has a long way to go, because the horrific chants heard on television by a the few dimwitted Americans spewing hatred like, “Give me back my country.” Those words say it all by the small minority of folks invoking such disturbing rhetoric. Because lets be honest, it’s not about political discussion, but it’s the loud screams of the most prejudice…

The problems in America are the result of a party system that we, the people, have allowed to fail us. Neither party is concerned about me or you, Democrat or Republican. They just have a differant approach to gain power and money. Screw us, the people!
      We, the people, have to regain control of our runaway government and do ourselves the service of voting out the problematic politicians and remind them that they work for us and there is no room for special interests or agendas. Bring back a free nation independent from a controling government.

    Time to eat crow, Voice of Reason. Some people who respond to this web site suffer from a conveniently short memory. Recently, when a certain man named Bush was in the White House, people of another political persuasion spewed an 8 year rant that consisted of basically five words. They foamed at the mouth, and demanded ‘Let’s take our country back.’
    This same piss-and-moan society now has two gods in the White House. They do NOT enjoy the beautiful irony of having to endure the slings and arrows of those who recognize putrid b s when they see it. This is also known as ‘the shoe is now on the other foot.’ How some love to howl at the moon when their lunacy is exposed. Turnabout is truly a WONDERFUL thing. Enjoy! It’s your turn in the barrel.

    • eyeswideopen

      Let’s Take our country back, is a little different from calling for his death, threatening a revolution, scaring the elderly, carrying nazi signs, yelling at disabled people in wheelchairs that their disease is their fault, totally disrespecting the office of the President, and spewing un- Christian slogans, healthy dispute is good for this country, lying, misleading and name calling is not.

      • Voice of Reason

        On an impulse, I decided to check this website out on my own, which I’ve interestingly discovered new replies. I am a bit taken aback that I no longer receive alerts from Heritage to personal replies as in the past. At least my voice has not been silenced as another conservative website such as Red State has done by black listing me with out any fair cause. Anyway, EyesWideOpen, I do appreciate your supportive comments, and yes, you astutely understand my assertions where others have not. However, I do not take any solace in my initial post since it appears that it will have no affect. I’m simply asking folks to look at other medias other than Fox or conservative radio as the gospel truth. With that, I do myself from time to time watch Fox cable news shows and listen to conservative radio to understand a certain mind set that for me at times is difficult to get my thoughts around. However, there are times that I’m surprised and entertained too. It is puzzling when politicians will say one thing on one network and then say something entirely opposite on another network. Still, I do get a chuckle out of watching Bill O’Reilly interviewing guest on his shows that almost always ends up with O’Reilly interviewing himself. Yet, it appears the soup of the day is this Glenn Beck fellow with his outrageous talk and antics. He constantly using this word czar, and I’ve lost track at the hundreds of purportedly czars appointments claimed by Beck. First off, if anyone starts talking to you about czars as a government conspiracy, one should be wary of the attempted psychological effect with the word czar to suggest some type of take over. Even so, many folks truly believe Beck’s relentless conspiracy theories. It is one after another to the point that I just got tired of his shenanigans. Still, many folks truly believe some his offensive hyperbolic gossip as truth. Despite Beck himself admitting on the morning program, “The View” he really doesn’t do any research on a topic and he provides entertainment because he is an entertainer. I don’t have a problem with these conservative radio shock jocks like Hannity, Beck, Savage, Limbaugh and others with many of these guys moving their entertainment to television and then recycle their shows into books. The part that disturbs me is that many folks do not recognize the shock value equals profit. The fact Beck’s new book has himself in Nazi regalia on the jacket cover says it all. I suppose these guys are laughing all the way to the bank…

        • eyeswideopen

          Voice,
          What is really fightening is that the Nazi emblem is being carried into the streets by the rt wing radical fringe. They see Beck dressed like that and as sheep do, they copy and adopt his actions. For Beck it’s a money issue, for the rest of us left to deal with those radical thoughts and actions, it can be havoc.

          • DaveH

            Eyes, There are a number of possibilities here. The Nazi symbol is probably an accusal of the current administration’s politics. Or, it is possibly ‘dirty tricks’, or maybe the carrier really advocates nazi-ism. If the latter, does that mean he/she represents all town-hall activists? Of course it doesn’t. By the way, I haven’t seen any footage of anyone actually doing that. Could you provide?

    • Michael

      Yes SC, the Democrats never had enough foresite to realize that the tactics of Saul Alinsky and Cloward-Piven once exposed would be turned against them.

    the american people had better quit worrying about political parties
    and who is a liberal or conservative. if we don’t band together instead of fighting each other we are going to lose our freedom completely.
    Government take over of private industry,cap and trade, government run
    health care- czars that are admitted communist are a theat to our freedom. everyone needs to do research on the facts (from books
    by these people=videos of them speaking.- then decide for yourself .
    listen to the videos of the president talking about forming a private
    army other than the miliary and how the government will be transformed and you may understand what is happening.
    That is if everyone can get past worrying about political parties and hating each other.

  • Bill C

    Yes, he is a US citizen. No problem.

    The sealed birth certificate by Obama is merely a distraction to hide the constitutional defect of his election.
    He taught constitutional law and knows these facts.

    In 1758, a treatise was written by Emerich de Vattel called The Law of Nations. In clause 212 Citizens and Natives it states, “The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents [plural] who are citizens.” The Law of Nations was widely read by the founding fathers and the definition of “natural born citizen” contained therein was the meaning commonly understood at the time our Constitution was written.

    Here is the actual text of that passage:

    212. Citizens and natives.
    The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.

    • A S

      Bill… ummm, by the very article you quoted above, Obama would NOT be a natual-born citizen. His father was a ‘foreigner’ and not a citizen. However, Obama’s children would be. Don’t get me wrong, I had always thought the whole ‘Obama not being a US citizen’ conspiracy theory was b s to start with, but this really gives me pause.

      As I understand the 212 treatise wording. Obama’s father AND mother would have to be a citizens in order for their children to be ‘natural-born citizens. As Obama’s father was not a citizen, and I quote “it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country”. If this article was indeed the meaning used when the Constitution was written, then Obama could NOT legally be President of the United states. Again quoting the text, “…by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights.” (assuming by ‘rights’ they mean rights as a US citizen).

      It would be interesting to find an article on the actual definitions of ‘citizenship’ that were used when the Constitution was written. I am not a lawyer and could be wrong in my understanding, are you saying in sincerity that “Yes, he is a US citizen” or are you being cynical? It would not matter what the sealed birth certificate stated. Obama is not a US citizen.

  • Louwrence

    God helps those who help themselves,get up from your knees & do something. Forget about the god in the bible, he does not give a damn about you & should stand trial in Den Hague for crimes against humanity. For anyone who relies on him is in for a rude shock & awakening.

    • Nanette

      Louwrence, The “God of the Bible” you spoke of, is our Lord Jesus Christ and He did stand trial for us because he loves us and wants us to share paridise with Him. He died a horrible death on the cross because of this love.
      God gave us a free will and because we have a free will to choose good or evil, some choose evil and commit these awful crimes against other human beings. God would never do things like that to us. God Loves YOU.

    Mr. Beaird, man did not evolve and he didn’t sprout out of the ground.
    How can any intelligent person fail to recognize the hand of God in all of creation. Man is not by nature good…man’s heart is wicked.
    We have a guide for our government…. It’s called the Ten Commandments. It isn’t what man thinks is good, it is what God thinks
    is good. The country badmouthed George Bush, a God fearing man, and so he gave us the present arrogant ass to see if we like him any better. B.O. is arrogant and proud, but pride goeth before a fall. He
    may succeed in fooling the masses, but he cannot fool God. So get with God, and skip all the meaningless social blather.

    • John the Carpenter

      “Man is not by nature good…man’s heart is wicked.” Speak for yourself Barbara. What a sad world you live in. And the “guide for our government” is call the constitution, NOT the 10 commandments. This country doesn’t belong to any one religion. Get it, and get over it! Bush? A “God fearing man”???? Sending tens of thousands of our young people to death in a desert, not to mention being responsible for the deaths of countless Iragis and Afghanis, mostly innocent family people, and looting our nations coffers to fill the pockets of his cronies!!! Where were your 10 commandments then? Remember the one that says “Thou shall not kill”? Where is this f*cking SAINT Bush now? Probably trying to drink his guilt away down in Craaaawwww-faaawwd, or is he hiding out in his daddy’s compound in New England where he REALLY comes from? DaveH has it right, your fight is all about your “property”, not about freedom or liberty or the human race, and certainly not about God. “Give unto Cesar that which is Cesar’s” said the Lord Jesus. In other words, y’all chill out now, nobody’s gonna run your granny through the “death panels”. The truth will set you free, not this hogwash about our
      President not being a legal citizen and socialism/communism/fascism (you do know that these are three distinct political philosophies, don’t you? Socialism is where we all work together to form a decent society; communism is where you work your ass off, fight each other for what little you have, and only the leaders get wealthy; fascism is where the president tells you “either you’re with us, or you’re against us” then lies to get the country into a war that will profit his buddies, while our sons and daughters go off to kill and be killed).
      As for health care reform, “No one should die because they cannot afford health care, and no one should go broke because they get sick.” If you disagree….you’re just a bad person!

      • Michael

        John, Who is responsible for the deaths of Iraqis, Afghanis and 250 GI’s since Jan. 20th. I thought Obama was going to end this thing the day he took office? And as far as Czar’s go, today we have one less to be concerned with. Self acclaimed communist Van Jones has resigned as of Saturday evening. Oh, and how about them poll numbers? It seems that Obama is experiencing the swiftest decline in polling history. I guess they didn’t poll you, right? Pay attention people, the end of the nightmare is nye. Before long all that will be left to do is hose out the pen to make room for a RIGHTeous leader whose views are paralell with that of the moral majority.

        • John the Carpenter

          There was no promise, nor possibility of ending the war the day Obama took office. But I agree, he hasn’t done much to stop what BUSH started.but with that, BUSH is still responsible for those deaths, not to mention ruined lives.

          Czars? What czars? What country do you live in? Oh, that’s right, Republicans like to call their “specialists” czars. At least Van had the balls to admit he made a mistake and offered his resignation for the good of the country!!!!

          Polls? What polls do you pay attention to? Oh the polls that FOX (non) NEWS conducts in heavily republican areas of the country. Hmm… seems to me that fastest declining approval rating was rewarded to GWBush, or did you miss that LITTLE part of history? Look it up yourself! Funny how FOX NON-NEWS forgets these “teency-weency” deatails — when it is convenient for their point of view!

          Also, Michael, I suppose you haven’t heard of figured out yet, that the so-called Moral Majority is NEITHER!

          Keep spreading the misinformation!

          • Michael

            John, No, Saddam was responsible for the deaths of ALL those people. Bush is responsible for creating a fledgling democracy which geographically split the Middleast right down the middle and liberated the lives of 50 million people.

            What Czar’s? These Czar’s.
            Van Jones – A man with testicles (your submittal) would not have waited till Saturday evening when the media had gone to bed for the weekend to anounce his resignation. An inocent man would not have caved so quickly. He would have stood his ground if he thought his position was defendable.

            Mark Loyd – Obama’s recently appointed FCC Diversity Czar drools over Hugo Chavez Soviet style control of Venezuelan Media. In his new capacity Loyd has similar plans for our media which was layed out in his 2006 book titled “Prologue to a Farce” where he states that “It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all to often an exageration”.

            John Holdren – Obama’s newly appointed Science Czar, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country states in his co-authored 1977 book titled Ecoscience that:
            *Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not.
            *The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food.
            *Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise.
            *People who “contribute to social deterioration” (i.e. undesirables)
            “can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” — in
            other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.
            *A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of American’s lives–using an armed international police force. (MJTF)

            John – this is but three of Obama’s THIRTY SEVEN un-elected, unsupervised, un-accountable Czar’s. So I have to ask you, is Van Jones someone that you really look upto? Is Mark Loyd a good role model for your children? And if John Holdren is sucsessful in his endeavors will you even have any grandchildren?

            Crazy Right Wing Scare Tactics: Czars

            Obama has “czars” in his administration. The word “czar” is Russian, which of course is scary (“Too Russian!” said former Oklahoma Rep. Ernest Istook. “Why not call somebody the Big Boss?”).

            One of Glenn Beck’s favorite things to do is list off and rail against the czars in Obama’s administration. Neil Cavuto, Mike Huckabee and others on Fox and like-minded media are also pretty excited about it and have made lots of puns (czar wars!) and wild accusations about Obama’s alleged czar shadow army.

            Somehow, their balanced take on this threatening phenomena fails to mention that George W. Bush was pretty fond of czars himself, overseeing the creation of a “food-safety czar,” a “cybersecurity czar,” a “regulatory czar,” an “AIDS czar,” a “manufacturing czar,” an “intelligence czar,” a “bird-flu czar” and a “Katrina czar,” according to Steve Benen in Washington Monthly.

          • Michael

            John, the difference is that Bush’s Czars were not radical communist who sought to wreck the constitution and stifle free speech. And he didn’t have 37 of them.

            John, Just for the record, Czar means: A male monarch or emporor.

  • DaveH

    I want to take this time to warn readers of something I’ve preached about for half my life.
    When we build government, it doesn’t matter if it’s built in the right-wing image or the left-wing image. The fact is that the resulting over-sized government can be easily subverted to tyranny by either side. Once all that apparatus is in place, it is not that difficult to establish Communism or Fascism or any other ism. The bureaucrats will mostly bend to any ideology that will keep their jobs.
    We are headed to almost certain tyranny if the voters don’t wake up to that reality soon. It will be a crap-shoot as to which side ultimately controls that Leviathan. So whether you believe in rule from the left or rule from the right, it is in your best interest to shrink the size of government.

    • eyeswideopen

      I agree, just how do we go about that? Any ideas, platforms, plan of attack?

      • DaveH

        Not sure. Most of my co-workers from 25-30 years ago thought I was a radical nut-job. Now, many of them sound more like me than I do. Funny thing is that they ‘preach to the choir’ as many have forgotten that I was long ago a ‘limited government’ advocate.
        When our City Council and Mayor were up for reelection, I asked all (by Email) the simple question: “Do you think we need more government or less government in our nation?”. I got 8 responses, with 7 of them saying “less”. The only one who didn’t say “less” used weasel-words to beat around the bush (he didn’t say “more” either). Coincidentally, the weasel-word guy moved here from Chicago.

        • eyeswideopen

          Dave,Maybe we could get this group of people to pick something they are passionate about, do some research, and come up with some ideas on how to reduce government.

            Yes Eyes, that is a problem. But if billions of dollars can be spent to bail out lousy business managers, I guess we could figure a way to cushion the laid-off workers’ pain a little. I have incidentally been out of work for 16 months now, and have been offered no assistance. I don’t mention that because I want help. I will find something when I am ready.
            Maybe all this talk of forced vaccinations will wake people up to the reality of how easily our government can justify forcing their way on us. Keep in mind that we vaccine refusers are not a danger to anybody who takes the vaccine. We are a danger only to ourselves and our fellow refusers. So the government has no logical legs to stand on regarding forced vaccinations. It is all about force (tyranny).

    “The American right has directed many silly and offensive attacks at President Obama. But so far nothing compares with the news that right-wing demagogues on talk radio and the Web, along with Republican Party officials, are trying to stop children from hearing the president urge them to stay in school — because, they say, that is socialist propaganda.

    Perhaps this shouldn’t come as a surprise after a summer in which town hall meetings on health care have been turned into mindless shouting matches, where protesters parade guns and are cheered on by elected officials. Not only Sarah Palin, but people who know better — like Senator Charles Grassley — have been tossing around the fiction that Mr. Obama is planning to institute “death panels” to speed the infirm elderly to their ends.

    Still, it was startling to read about the overheated and bizarre response to Mr. Obama’s plan to give a speech in a Virginia school next week that schools around the country also can show.

    The White House says Mr. Obama will talk about the importance of education — hardly, we hope, a controversial topic. But the article said that in a growing number of school districts, especially in Texas, parents, talk-show hosts and some Republican officials are demanding that schools either refuse to show it or allow parents to keep their children home. The common refrain is that Mr. Obama will offer a socialist message — although nobody said what they meant by that.

    There is, of course, nothing socialist in any of Mr. Obama’s policies, as anyone with a passing knowledge of socialism and its evil history knows. But in this country, unlike actual socialist countries, nobody can be compelled to listen to the president. What is most disturbing about all this is what it says about the parents — and the fact that they have such little regard for their children’s intelligence and ability to think.”

    Dumb asses!!!

    • American Citizen

      Have you noticed how Obama has backtracked and changed the speech? There must have been something in there that parents objected to.

      • John the Carpenter

        And you KNOW the speech was changed because WHO in your family is Obama’s speech writer??? Give me a break! Just because Bill O’Reilly says it’s true…. well…. that would most definitely mean it’s made up bullsh*t!

        So what do you pledge to DaveH? Apparently to your own selfishness. If you have a problem with what these people are “pledging”, you have more problems than you know. But then again, you right wing nuts were never in this to make the world a better place. Have a nice life!

        I’m thinking carpentry with my head in sand is better than plumbing with your head in a sewer (Joe the Plumber – since you obviously can’t make that connection on your own).

        DaveH, I see a bunch of out of work actors in the only gig they could get now that hollywood has kicked them to the curb while replacing them with no name actors whose names have not yet been soiled by spouting their political views publicly. After all, the TV game show
        Hollywood Squares has only a limited amount of openings. The ironic thing is that the writers and producers shared these viewpoints and even spurred them on until it was realized that it was hurting the bottom line of the film industry. And they were right, (just figuratively of course) they are seeing record returns this summer at the box office.

    This is unbelievable stuff. From the Massachusetts Liberals who fight vigorously for the right to take a baby’s life, but turn around and force people to take risky vaccinations for their own good. It is all about power, nothing more. We need to ‘Quarantine’ Massachusetts:

    • John the Carpenter

      I gotta say, i’m with you on this one DaveH. Not the part about taking a babies life (a fetus is not a baby, but I may wrong, I’m sure you had some of your best experiences before you were born, me, I don’t remember). I’m not so sure it’s all about power either. More about FEAR, which right wingers are well familiar with, since everything you stand for is based on it. This is about fear of a pandemic. Probably a(NOTHER) unrealistic fear.

      But forcing people to take risky vaccinations, that just isn’t right.
      One thing about the health care debate, taking responsibility for your own health is glaringly missing. If only we didn’t live in such a greedy commercialistic capitalist society, perhaps the truth about health would get out there and health costs wouldn’t be as big a concern as they are now.

      (Now go have another coke and a burger and don’t forget to take your blood pressure meds and insulin shot!)

      But still, no one should die because they cannot afford health care, and no one should go broke because they get sick.

      • American Citizen

        Destroy a pregnancy at any stage and you are taking a human life. It may not look like a baby in its early stages, but it is the same life from beginning to birth at nine months. We all went through the stages before we were born.

          So my birthday is actually in December, not August? We got a lot a calendar fixin’ to do!

          • American Citizen

            You got it, we’re already nine months old when we’re born. If your mother had had an abortion when she found out she was expecting you, who would not have been born?

            Science has proved that human life begins at conception. Where there is no life, there is no growth and the zygote increases rapidly in size and form. There are actually brain waves at 10 days – before the woman even knows she’s pregnant. Every abortion stops a beating heart. As I said, we all pass through these stages until we are recognizable as a little human being. But the life is there with all its possibilities.

      DaveH, Here’ a couple examples of Liberal Logic:

    Had to respond to Mr Mark Wagner: Here is one Democrat (voting and registered Dem for over 35 years) who remains a Jeffersonian, not a Marxist. A Democrat who is appalled by the Obama dems. I don’t believe that government is the problem; neither do I believe that it is the solution to everything. I guess I’m a “Blue Dog” who is waiting (along with many of my moderate Deocratic and Republican friends) for a 3rd party. Until the Obama leftists go away, I shall use my vote to oppose anyone who follows BO’s radical policies.

Seven Trillion alone to China. We must wake-up and take our Country back. Our Country is going down hill at an alarming rate. And our young people are being killed off in not one , but two wars, wars we should not be in. Just like Vietnam, we will not win these wars. It is time for a real CHANGE, a new party, the America First Party is the one I am joining. Help us to get our Country back!

  • BABUSHSKA

    The Pied Piper….long, but worth the read!

    And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land
    Called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their
    Will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that
    Person known as “The One.”

    He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He
    Hypnotized the people telling them, “I am sent to save you.” My lack
    Of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my
    Association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall save you
    With hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the
    Land that he who proceeded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation,
    And that all he has built must be destroyed. And the people rejoiced,
    For even though they knew not what “The One” would do, he had promised
    That it was good; and they believed. And “The One” said ” We live in
    The greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!”
    And the people said, “Hallelujah! Change is good!”

    Then He said, “We are going to tax the rich fat-cats.” And the
    People said “Sock it to them!” “And redistribute their wealth.” And
    The people said, “Show us the money!” And the he said, ”
    Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody.”

    And Joe the plumber asked, ” Are you kidding me? You’re going to
    Steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??” And “The One”
    Ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe’s personal records were hacked and publicized.
    One lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist policy?” And she was
    Banished from the kingdom!

    Then a citizen asked, “With no foreign relations experience and
    Having zero military experience or knowledge, how will deal with
    Radical terrorists?” And “The One” said, “Simple. I shall sit with
    Them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they
    Will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!” And the people
    Said, “Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons
    Into free cars for the people!”

    Then “The One” said “I shall give 95% of you lower taxes.” And one,
    Lone voice said, “But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.” So “The One”
    Said, “Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!”
    And the people said, “Hallelujah! Show us the money!”
    Then “The One” said, “I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell
    Your homes!” And the people yawned and the slumping housing market
    Collapsed. And He said. “I shall mandate employer-funded health care
    For every worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every
    Person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the
    Clinics.” And the people said, “Give me some of that!”
    Then he said, “I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.”
    And the people said, “Where’s my rebate check?”

    Then “The One” said, “I shall bankrupt the coal industry and
    Electricity rates will skyrocket!” And the people said, “Coal is
    Dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don’t care for that part
    About higher electric rates.” So “The One” said, Not to worry. If
    your rebate isn’t enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out.
    Just sign up with the ACORN and you troubles are over!”

    Then He said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let’s
    grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches,
    free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing…” And
    the people said, “Hallelujah!” and they made him king!

    And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and
    ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others
    simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto
    a rock dropped from a cliff.
    The bank banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a
    crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.

    Then “The One” said, “I am the “the One”- The Messiah – and I’m here
    to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have
    enough!” But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. “Wait a
    minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have
    to pay more… And “The One” said, “Wait a minute. That is
    unfair!!” And the world said, “Neither are these other idiotic
    programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and
    a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!”

    And the people cried out, “Alas, alas!! What have we done?” But yea
    verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon
    him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation
    was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or
    shelter or hope. And the Change “The One” had given them was as like
    unto a poison that had destroyed then and like a whirlwind that
    consumed all that they had built.

    And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish,
    “give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!” But it was too
    late, and their homeland was no more.

    You may think this a fairy tale, but it’s not.
    It’s happening RIGHT NOW

    For ALL of you who are not happy with what is happening in Washington with our President and the rest of the politicians. Get involved locally. If your Representative and the Senators are not voting the way you think they should, let them know about it. Find out who is running for office and EDUCATE YOURSELF on where they are coming from politically and where they want to take the country. GET INVOLVED. Don’t waste your time with uneducated bloggers that operate under the notion ‘don’t confuse me with the facts, I already made up my mind’. The Ten Commandments are still our best guide to save what we have in this country. God Bless !!!

    The honeymoon is not over Chip Wood. White folks just don’t want to give the first Black President a pat on the back for the great job he is doing? I don’t know where you get your Polls/Totals from, but they are just white man’s way of manipulating the masses, but we are not stupid. It is time to stop the crap! You white folks are so lost without your opportunity to steal tax-payers’ monies, under false pretenses, that you are always looking for Obama’s faults, to give him a verbal oppressive beating, whenever, and wherever you can. Stop the nonsense, and grow up.

    We already had 232 1/2 years of stupid white man’s rule. It is time for God to step in, and clean up all that white maggots’ corrupt stuff. Get a life! Promote Goodness! You all act like little children, and moreso like Mongolese children who have the intellect of a 12 year old, no matter how old they get. Wake up, and smell the God given Black President Obama, and enjoy it, while it lasts. I still remember the Bush/Chaney crap, from 2000-2008. We do not want any more of that crap!!!!!

      Yeah! them mean ole, greedy, rich, white folks have always been the

      to the Welfare programs, Acorn, ACLU, give some to Jesse Jackson & Al
      Sharpton to help the poor that they love & care for so much. Our state
      and Federal prison systems are full of them mean, ole, greedy, rich white folks for their crimes, such as murder, rape, drugs, drive-by killings, gang violence, you know what all them mean, ole, greedy, rich
      white folks are doing. Plus, their children have done everything, but
      destroy our Public School systems. Maybe, Obama can tax them more and
      give more to the schools and hire more security guards. Yeah, them mean,ole, greedy, rich, white folks have never created any jobs for us poor folks. Obama is going to get even with them ole, mean, greedy, rich, white folks. That’s for sure!! Then Obama is going to take care of us from the WOMB TO THE TOMB! HE’S GOING TO GET ALL THEM RICH WHITE
      FOLKS MONEY! Yeah, they are what’s really WRONG with AMERICA!

I even think the Patriot Act is still going!

    Now how could I be so different in my opinion than all these intelligent well informed folks? How did all the changes Obama is making escape me?

    Can you imagine what an isolated ignorant life I must have? To me it appears that the Bush tax cuts are still in effect. It must be that stuff I smoked in the sixties. These hallucinations are very vivid.

    Here’s a poll that reflects the truth:
    65% of Americans Blame Bush for Great Recession
    http://firedoglake.com/2009/09/15/65-of-americans-blame-bush-for-great-recession/

    And before I leave, I would like to thank Bush for all that he did for America during his reign as the worst ever President in the entire history of the country:

    Thank you Bush for giving billions in no-bid contracts to your contributors.
    Thank you Bush for trying to put Kissinger in charge of the 9/11 commission.
    Thank you Bush for exposing our spies to keep them from exposing you.
    Thank you Bush for burning down our forests and poisoning our land.
    Thank you Bush for strutting around on an aircraft carrier, celebrating war.
    Thank you Bush for not guarding Iraq’s nuclear repositories for a full month.
    Thank you Bush for making jokes about not finding WMD in Iraq.
    Thank you Bush for hiding behind our kids on Sept 11th, endangering their lives.
    Thank you Bush for demonizing good Americans who fought your subversion.
    Thank you Bush for stirring up religious and racist hatred around the world.
    Thank you Bush for killing in excess of 100,000 innocent people.
    Thank you Bush for conspiring to subvert our democracy with threats of a police state.
    Thank you Bush for constantly spreading front page and front line lies.
    Thank you Bush for the fascist patriot act.
    Thank you Bush for fake terrorism warnings for political purposes.
    Thank you Bush for lying our country into war.
    Thank you Bush for wasting the lives of our troops.
    Thank you Bush for hiring thugs and terrorists as mercenaries.
    Thank you Bush for conspiring to imprison (and torture) the innocent.
    Thank you Bush for ruthlessly robbing the treasury.
    Thank you Bush for wasting millions on never-will-work Missile Defense.
    Thank you Bush for stealing our votes and violating our constitution.
    Thank you Bush for attacking our allies for defying your heinous plans.
    Thank you Bush for affronting our values on a daily basis.
    Thank you Bush for generating the largest record breaking deficit in the entire history of the USA.
    And thank you to all who attempt (pathetically) to blame the deficit on Obama.

    Stop the lies, the smear tactics, the bigotry and the hatred – because we’ve got historical fact behind us now, the right wing propaganda failed in the end, and those among us who are educated can spot a lying deceiving smearing retard from 100 miles away. You’re DONE.

  • John J.

    Our forefathers, in their wisdom, and in my opinion, inspired by GOD; wrote the Constitution and its accepted interpretation, The Federalist,(Or the Federalist Papers), as the basis for all Laws of this nation to be Legislated.

    Since the ratification of these documents, there have been numerous individuals and groups who have opposed them in order to enjoy some sort of personal gain, or to destroy the basis of this Republic.

    We may put the blame on certain individuals, or individual political parties; but in the end analysis we must acknowedge that much of the blame rests mostly on our own shoulders.

    Just as it is impossible to live a life that is pleasing to God without knowing His words,(The Scriptures, or their accepted translations); it is impossible to be a particpating citizen of this Country without knowledge of the documents on which it was founded.

    How many of us have taken the time to study the Founding Documents, in order to be able to choose, support, and vote for the proper Congressional Representatives? Not many, would be my guess.

    Yet here we sit at a crossroad, pointing fingers at different groups and political parties, blaming them for our neglect of the civic duties that the Founding Documents gave us, with the rights, and responsibilities to oversee the actions of our Government.

    Truth be known, THEY HAVE PUT US IN THE POSITION THAT WE ARE IN BECAUSE WE LET THEM.

    My experience in the Military has given me the opportunity to observe in several countries, the methods which Marxism uses to destroy a country. We are now at a critical point in their planned proceedures of that destruction. Our Deficit is growing at a phenominal rate, our entitlement progams are out of control, we are not allowed to be energy independant, at least 85 members of our Congress are Marxists, we have a president who has not yet proven that he is a natural born citzen of this Country, and we are cooperating with Marxist leaders in the Organization of the American States; among other things.

    The last of the abovementioned points is in clear violation of treaties made since the late forties in this hemisphere. This attitude in the past was why Cuba became a communist country, and spread its influence to Nicaragua and El Salvadore in the 70s and 80s
    and Venezuela is becoming the scourge of South America today.

    Some of you have mentioned the possibilities of this Congress and president going away in 2012 because of their disfuncionality; but my gut feeling tells me, that unless this Congress is not changed to one that is devoted to the Constitution in the midterm election of 2010; there will be no Constitution by the end of 2011. IT WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID, ALONG WITH EVERY RIGHT THAT YOU HAVE.

    So what can we do? First, before Thanksgiving, we need to take the time to study these documents. Second, disregard any political affiliations you may have, and study the voting records of your Representatives and Senators. Third, Study the voting records of possible Candidates to replace those who Legislate without regard to the Constitution. Fourth, form groups within your districts and you States to recruit, support, campaign for , and elect those who will Legislate in such a way to insure that this Country will stand as it was established.

    Last but not least, try to avoid the debacle of the usual vaudville show that has been presenting itself as a “Political
    Campaign”. THIS IS YOUR COUNTRY, NOT THEIRS!!!

    Remember to change your voter registration before the deadline in your State, in order to be able to vote for the Candidate of your choice.

    GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!

      “we have a president who has not yet proven that he is a natural born citzen of this country”

  • Peter

    Marxism in America…? I don’t think so. Moreover, it’s Capitalism that’s got us into this economic crisis. There needs to be a balance, and there’s nothing wrong with how President Hugo Chavez is handling Venezuelan domestic policy.

    The working classes in that country now have access to an education, cheaper gas and reasonably priced food. How can that be a negative thing unless you’re a rich elitist, of course. Chavez is protecting his people from capitalist foreign corporations from taking advantage of his country’s resources. And he managed to overcome an American military coup that tried to overthrow him during the Bush Administration years. Other latin countries haven’t been so lucky in the past, such as Ecuador, Nicaragua, etc.

    Yes, Chavez is a socialist. And what’s wrong with that? But for those people out there who think somehow that the pursuit of elitism through capitalist activities (which in general terms always amounts to the pillaging of another country’s resources by foreign corporate interests, depriving that country’s people of their own resources and property) is the path that America should continue down on, and that a caring socialist society is somehow related to “communism”, then you need your head testing. How can a Socialist society fail when everyone’s helping each other? Unless of course, you only want to help yourself!

    For anyone to view Chavez’s Venezuela as “the scourge of South America” is really a dark and questionable position for anyone to take for all of the reasons stated above. It’s obvious that some Americans still subconsciously desire that certain latin countries such as Venezuela should be controlled and manipulated by Washington, for America’s material benefit. That’s actually in my view, a sick attitude and it smacks of U.S. government corruption and oppression, something that the world can certainly do without. And I really believe that Obama will do his best to prevent this behavior in Washington continuing in the future. And that’s a tough call for a U.S. President.

    The American population accounts for around 4% of the entire planet’s population. And we consume around 40% of the entire world’s resources each year while millions die of starvation. There is something really wrong with that statistic.

    The sense of entitlement that many Americans feel they need to have in order to pursue their capitalist dream (turning into a nightmare now for many) has to end, because the world cannot sustain that excessive consumption forever. I like Obama for the simple fact that he only owns one house, one car and a bicycle. McCain by comparison, owns an entire fleet of cars, a whole bunch of stately homes and even his own plane. I definitely think that we put the best person in the White House somehow, but do you…?

    • David Hall

    I do not see democrats or republicans as other than two words for a group of men over the past 40 years that have worked and passed legislation that has done nothing to protect individual rights, small business,environmental protection, or protect the wealth of middle class. In fact it is as if these so called men and women in the senate and congress have been working directly against America and if I could I would charge all but a handful with treason and theft and imprison them for life.Some the ones who give up CIA agents should be executed.

    Has anyone, besides me, come to realize that this country is no longer being run by American government officials, bought and paid for by the American people to represent our thoughts on how we want this government run, but by an Anti-American “MAFIA” that is basically stealing this country away from it’s rightful owners, the American people, and using our tax dollars to do it? This, in fact, means we, the American citizens of this country, are paying for our own demise!!!!!! Time for action America!!!!!

    This nation is a plutocracy and a national security state. Lets accept this for a fact. Our jobs have been outsourced and will never come return. America, you want to destroy liberalism and equate it to socialism and communism. Well, let’s see what corporate America does now. You have given them free reign so accept the consequences.
