Sneaky Senate Trying To Slip Internet Kill Switch Past Us

Sneaky Senate Trying To Slip Internet Kill Switch Past Us

Sensing Senators don’t have the stomach to try and pass a stand-alone bill in broad daylight that would give the President the power to shut down the Internet in a national emergency, the Senate is considering attaching the Internet Kill Switch bill as a rider to other legislation that would have bi-partisan support.

“It’s hard to get a measure like cybersecurity legislation passed on its own,” Senator Thomas Carper (D-Del.) told GovInfoSecurity.com. Carper is chairman of the Senate subcommittee with cybersecurity oversight.

Under instructions from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Senators Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) are working to combine their separate bills into one that can be attached to another piece of legislation, such as the Defense Authorization Act.

While proponents say an Internet Kill Switch is needed to protect the nation’s power, water and banking grids, what it really is is a way to control the flow of information. Experts have said that the nation’s power and water grids are not connected directly to the Internet.

Lieberman let slip his real thoughts on the Internet Kill Switch in an interview with CNN’s Candy Crowley when he said, “Right now China — the government — can disconnect parts of its Internet in a case of war. We need to have the ability to do that, too.”

For more on Lieberman’s interview, go here.

And the idiot Rockefeller is no friend of the Internet either. He has said he wished the Internet had never been invented and we were back to communicating with pencil and paper.

China and other totalitarian regimes readily use their power over the Internet to deny their citizens the free flow of information. And that’s what in store for the United States if this bill comes to fruition.

The President — Democrat or Republican — can now use almost any excuse to declare a state of emergency and that would give him the excuse to shut down any and all parts of the Internet. The target of the shutdown could be sites that express dissenting views or entire sections of the country the President — or his puppet master — is displeased with.

The Senate will soon be back in Washington, D.C., for a four-week session before adjourning until the November elections. This is the window that provides the most danger to our freedom.

    Actually, Rockefeller is a classic “useful idiot.” He’s not alone, and a short list includes Reid, Lieberman and the White House crew. I suppose it’s possible that some parrots and robots will step forward and claim that government can never have enough power ['trust us. we know best'].
    We have nothing to lose by singling out EVERY elected official as an enemy of the American people if they dare to put restrictons on the internet. Does it have to be said that when and if the 1st Amendment dies, the 2nd Amendment will be sacrificed next in the name of safety?
    Because of what is at stake, anyone who dares to support elected slime who want to tamper with the internet are no better than their “leaders.” In the 18th century, the British had to learn a hard lesson.
    Are our “leaders” cut from the same contaminated cloth as King George? That is THEIR choice. If they are determined to ignore history and go down treason’s path, let no one pity them.

    • Angel Wannabe

      sc, (copy and pasted from your comments) Are our “leaders” cut from the same contaminated cloth as King George?
      Very true, but they can’t hide behind being Mentally Mad like King George, they’re Totalitarian, power hungry bunch of hypocrites!
      Throw the bums out in November 2010!!!

          I THINK THAT ANY ONE WHO VOTES FOR A DEMOCRAT IS SIMPLY STUPID

    • EddieW

      Really sorry to say you are sooo right!!! I think they will hide it in something like the Defense bill, which should sail straight through!! We can’t get rid of these corrupt and evil people soon enough..Now we have Eric Holden and his Dept. of Injustice God!!! What next???

      • Betty Carskadon

        I agree with your statement. I feel it also wrong to force the people.

    • blv54

      is anyone else on here as ignorant as me? I used to actually believe congress and the senate voted on bills individually and argued whether they were good for the country and if they should be passed, I had no clue they didn’t even read them or attached them to other bills and sneak them through, silly me

      • Angel Wannabe

        blv54, don’t sweat it, there is a lot of us, who weren’t on board with this!___ I didn’t really get involved in fact finding until our kids left home two years ago, I was just too busy with sick parents and helping to raise a grand daughter. I really began reading, when a virtually unknown senator was getting, what I thought too much attention & publicity, about running for president. I then went on a fact finding mission, and wound up NOT voting for Obama. This “shift” I believe has been coming for a long time, it was visible, when Bush was President, why he wasn’t perfect either, Obama makes Bush look like an angel!

  • dan az

    It seem that we all get closer by the day.With all this crap going on they think were not watch them.I feel the need for a revolution to take back what they have stolen every day.Maybe its just me but I always knew that there was corruption in politics and government but it is completly out of control!

            at’s pretty funny and true!

          • Granny Mae

            That is so funny but also so true. You got my attention !

          dan I know.

          • Bob

            A handful of farmers at Lexington-Concord stated the first American Revolution. I wonder if they had the internet would they have stayed at their computers instead of fighting the British.

          • Granny Mae

            Bob,

            Now that is food for thought. I’m hoping they would have taken action!

    • Doug

      What ever happened to “defend and protect” the constitution of the United States. Isn’t that the oath that they all take as they come to Washington. They have long since forgotten that oath and it has become almost criminal in the way they are trying to sidestep the Constitution. I am almost in agreement with Dan that some sort of revolution needs to happen. We need to significantly change the way Congress take bits of our Constitutional protections away from us. Here is a prime example. A bill that would not pass on it’s own will be slipped into the wording of another to get passed. All bills need to be brought to a vote on the merits of the Bill and not slipped into another to ensure it passes.

      • 45caliber

        Oaths are binding only if the person taking them considers them so. Particularly if they are atheist – which I believe most of our Congress are.

        • Angel Wannabe

          45, your so right, oaths are just like contracts, they mean nothing, unless both parties agree.

          • Terri Knight

            I agree, a contract does not mean a thing to them. They did not care about the auto industry’s contracts with shareholders, they think that the Constitution is faulty. They are not happy with our free society, we need them to step in and make our decisions for us. I believe that we would be better off voting them all out.
            It seems that the 60′s drugs have influenced the liberals and they are looking for the free ride they had then.
            If you don’t like the U.S. go somewhere else. A stimulus we could get behind, one way ticket to another country and giving up your citizenship to this one. Plenty of folks around the world would love to come here and given the chances we have to make it.

        • DaveH

          I take offense to that, 45. I am atheist, and I’ll bet I live my life with more morals than most religious people. I have known none personally that I wasn’t disappointed with (in relation to moral adherence).

          • Claire

            DaveH–I will come to your defense!! I know several people that are bible thumpers and bible quoters and yet they curse, lie, cheat, raise hell all week long and go to Church on Sunday and ask for forgiveness, then they go back to what they were doing. I do believe in God, but I am not perfect by any means and I do not pretend to be. And yet no one is peffect.

          • Claire

            peffect??? Where did that come from?? I meant “perfect.”

          • Jana

            Claire, I agree with you wholeheartedly. DaveH is a good decent honest person that I am proud to call my friend on this site. No one is perfect, but we strive to be good. Sometimes we succeed and many times we do not.

          • Claire

            Jana–Yes, DaveH is a good person. In fact, he has better ethics than a lot of so-called Christians.

      • Granny Mae

        Doug,

        Our solem oath seems to mean nothing today. People let them run off their lips without a thought. Oath’s, promises and a persons word, stand for nothing today. People let lies issue from their lips as though they were just breathing air. I think it is our own faults. Not that I like to say that but how many of us have taken the time to insist on our children really understanding what their oath or word or promise really is? I know I never made it a point in my child raising unless one of my kids got caught in a lie! It just didn’t Dawn on me to make it a focal point and it really should have. Now today I am working to make up for lost time. Of course my boys are full grown men now and it is easier to talk to them about integrity and honesty, and they can see what they couldn’t see when they were young. I am blessed that all five of them are good men and very concerned about the direction this country is going in and who it is that we have given power over us. We make mistakes but with the grace and help of God we will be able to straighten this mess out and hopefully keep it straight ! We need to learn how to look for and choose our leaders and teach our children just how very powerful their vote is and that their vote should never be just tossed on a candidate without a thorough examination of that candidate and if the beliefs of that candidate do not line up with every one of our christian beliefs then we don’t give them our vote! Our candidates need to be scrutinized and backed long before they are the final choice for a party. We have to work hard to get the right people in office. If we don’t we will always end up with people that don’t measure up and we will have to decide to either vote for someone we don’t like or just not vote and put up with someone we don’t like. It becomes a loose, loose , situation !

    • Rotties4

      Be careful what you wish for this is exactly what BO wants is a revolution. So he can implement marshal law and take away our guns and the freedom that is left. Put us away in fema camps. We know it will all happen becuase this is AMERICA and our FREEDOM is being stomped on everyday. By a GODLESS ADMINISTRATION. Remember America is no longer a Christian nation has BO wanted everyone to think. May God have mercy on us.

      • 45caliber

        My wife is a God-fearing woman who spend all her life being good and taking care of others. She told me to be sure my guns are loaded and handy in case the government tries to show up. And she wants to be sure that either we go down or they do. She wants me to make sure she knows how to reload and shoot every gun in the house. Basically she’s told me to “go get ‘em” if they show up and don’t worry about her – she will be covering my rear.

          Shes a keeper!

        • DaveH

          I love the sentiment. But please, 45, if it comes to that, fight wisely. Pick fights you can win. A frontal assault at your doorway is not the place.

      • Jennifer

        Guess what guys…this is not America anymore.Now that obama’s in power our beloved America is no more.Before we can vote the socialist party out of power(that’s the old democratic party with their new name)they will cram all that they can down our throats. Once they take away our guns, the internet, then take over talk radio, we will really be living in nazi america.I believe that we should round up all the idiots that voted obama into power and throw them into the fema concentration camps. Then they can reap the transformation that they wanted so bad!

      • Bob

        Most of us are going to FEMA camps whether we fight or not. Maybe the internet was invented so the gov’t could find out who was against the. They have a file on all of us.

        • Granny Mae

          Bob,

          Yes sir they do ! We need to be a lot more careful !

    • 45caliber

      dan:
      Since Oblama came to office it is as if they feel that they no longer have to hide what they are doing. They just don’t seem to care if we know any more because they don’t believe we are now able to do anything to stop them even if we want to do it. I wonder if they are hoping someone will try to start a revolution so they can declare martial law and call in troops that WILL follow their orders – such as UN troops. Or perhaps they intend to use some from Iran or some other friendly country.

      • dan az

      8/31/10, I’m 63 years old, I believe I will see ‘revolution,’civil unrest before Obama, the anointed one, leaves his one-term office. We are in deep shit w/ this admin.

      You want to speak out on Immigration, fine, but let’s save it for relevant discussions. Are you going to add this to every topic? Why don’t you let everyone know what it is so they don’t waste their time thinking it has anything to do with the subject at hand?

      • JeffH

        Kinetic1, did I strike a familiar nerve?

        • Kinetic1

          Nope. I understand that in the flow of conversation we may get off topic, but to start right off the bat was annoying. To place this note in two articles where it did not belong while ignoring the one where it did just seemed so stupid that I had to say something.

          As for the video, this is the type of Liberal who calls in to Hannity. It doesn’t matter that he can’t hold his side of an debate without yelling “answer the question, answer the question”, she can’t even get her side started.

    These power hungry magets are going to do everything in they’re power, to destroy as much of America as they can before, they’re azz’s are ousted in November. We’ve had to take the good with the bad in Obama, This is gonna sound crazy for me, but I thank Christ for putting Obama in office, WHY?__B/C once and for all, the progressive agendas are laid bare & fully exposed, now that’s the kind of transparency, I’m talkin’ ’bout!!__Thank Christ for the watch dogs, protecting Americans peoples backs, keep it up Personal Liberty!

    • Al Sieber

      Angel, I would really want to believe we could vote them out in Nov.

        • 45caliber

          I know that if there are any new black panthers or similar groups at my polling place, I’m going to call the police and the moment they don’t act, I’m going home to get my own club. As a 20+ member of the SCA and a 15 year Knight Marshal for them, I think I can do a lot better with my club than any dozen or so of them can.

          • 45caliber

            “As a 20+ YEAR member…”

          • dan az

            what is SCA?

          • Angel Wannabe

            45, we’ve never had trouble like that here at our polls, but there is a first time for everything. I mentioned it here before, we are truly living in historical times, quite frankly it’s a bit frightening. We just gotta stay peaceful.

          • 45caliber

            dan:

            It is called the Society for Creative Anachronisms. It is basically a medival play group. We dress up as knights and ladies and have fun. But the one thing we really do well is learn to fight with all the various weapons used in the Middle Ages. All major towns have a group and I know Phenix does. Look for sca.org. It tells you a lot about the group and how to get in contact. A knight marshal is both a safety office and a trainer. It is a very family-oriented group and we look out for each other. If you like history and would like to be a knight, look up such a group. (I had a laugh at one lady one time. She said, “I used to HATE writing term papers in school. Now I do it for fun!”)

        • Richard Pawley

          That all depends on whether we get the chance to vote for good people and if they let us down we vote them out again in two years. This country wasn’t built in two years, four years, or even twenty, and it could take that long to get us back on our feet again, and not be the biggest borrower on the planet. We may have the most powerful military but that cannot replace having a strong economy and being out of debt. The 111th Congress has added more than 3 TRILLION dollars to our debt and even if we paid no interest on that it would take more than 2,700 years to pay that back at a million dollars a day. It’s impossible and all we can do is vote them out and get ready for food and fuel and imported goods tripling after the deflation ends and maybe before (stagflation). Even replacing Congress will not change what they have already squandered but if they can convince us it doesn’t matter and there is nothing we can do then they have already won!

          • Christin

            A strong economy comes from a country that actually PRODUCES goods and services, not from one that just CONSUMES them.

        The United States will not be if everyone votes in November and if everyone reminds others to vote. My 73 year old mother asked me the other day just what was so important about November. I reminded her of what is going on, she now has a better idea of why it is so important to become informed and vote. Just think how many others are just like her and don’t have a clue. I told her this is how and why we have 0bla bla in office.

      I agree with you. Let them KNOW that you don’t like “business as usual” and that they will be fired if they don’t follow your wishes.

      Did you know that the securest job in the US is that of Congress? They have the smallest turnover of any other job in the US – usually less than 3% over a two year period. We need to convince them this fall that it really isn’t as secure as they thought.

  • Bob J

    I believe that we have reached the tipping point, and if we do nothing, this country is gone. This is exactly what obama wanted when he took office, I believe that the only thing for which he is waiting to complete the job, is an incident of some nature, with which he can justify declaring martial law. From then on, America will no longer exist as we knew it. In my opinion, it will then take a revolution to begin anew, and I am not sure that there are enough patriots in this country to do what is necessary. We have raised several generations of children that have no idea what freedom really means. Freedom is being responsible for oneself, not taking largess from the labors of others, you are responsilbe for your own education, housing, clothing and food. You become a productive citizen, you become self sufficient. There are those that are not capable of doing that, and for them, society may have an obligation to aide them, but that responsibility DOES NOT BELONG TO OR WITH THE GOVERNMENT. The government should be small, and pay attentiong to those things that are consigned to the government, national defense, and security of the boarders. We have for generations elected people that believe that they are smarter than the rest of us, and feel compeled to try and dictate to us how to live, how to spend what money they allow us to keep, and it is time for that to stop. They are not any smarter than society, no matter what they think. Some of them might be, but that does not give them the right to tinker in our lives.

    • Craig

      “it will then take a revolution to begin anew, and I am not sure that there are enough patriots in this country to do what is necessary.”

      It only took 3% in the first revolution.

    • Jerry D

      I agree, Bob J, Obama is waiting for any reason to declare martial law at the optimal time (for him). It will probably be a contrived crisis. As for intelligence: there are equally intelligent people on all sides of an issue. Being intelligent, however, doesn’t mean the right decisions will be reached. What’s more important is the wisdom and understanding, along with the right knowledge, to make a proper decision. In Obama’s mind, he is doing what’s best for him and the rest of the world. It would be really good to see him impeached.

      Declaring Martial law for any Crisis…

      Like on Nov. 2nd???

      I believe BO tried with the Swine Flu demanding nurses and Americans all take the poisonous flu shot, but it wasn’t as epidemic as they wished and nurses revolted.
      I believe BO & Demo/progressive Congress passed (fake) Stimulus bill, Omnibus bill so the debt will soar, (and didn’t address ACORN and Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae in the new Financial Reform bill) to bankrupt America and the worth of the American dollar so we will be in CRISIS.

      I believe BO & dem congress are purposely NOT making an atmosphere for job growth and business expansion so their can be a Economic Crisis.
      I believe BO let the BP Gulf Oil Spill gush, allowing no help so that it would become a Crisis to put forth an Oil Moratorium so America would continue to be dependant of foreign oil and deny us to drill and refine our own VERY PLENTIFUL resources. America has coal, oil and gas to last generations…………..

      I’m sure we can come up with a many more.

      One CRISIS after another to break us, weaken us into submission.

      This administration is an American CRISIS and needs to be locked up and get a taste their own medicine.

        I truly believe BHO is absolutely trying to DESTROY our country ! I am old enough to have not only studied history, when it was taught,but to have actually experienced what our beloved country used to be. what the founders came here to establish! The president arrogantly feels he has the power to do as he chooses because in his own words. he is “the one we have been waiting for”.the messiah who wants to tear down the stability so he can take over completely as it lies in disarray!

          He isn’t trying to destroy our country. He is trying to CHANGE it into a model of what USSR used to be. Total control for the few at the top. And the only way to do that is to make it so bad in our country that we’ll be willing to allow anything if they will just let us get to some food.

            45caliber, You know as most all who have written here, that you are correct in what you say about this group of polititions..This is what we get when we follow the heard (a party of Dems. Reps. Progressives, Liberals, Marxist and so on. People have forgoten how to think and act 0n their own gut fellings. Ever heard the story about the young foriegn college student who came from a civil war-torn country that was turning into a socialist marxist nightmare? He said this it’s like cathing wild hoggs 1st you go where there is sign of congreation of then. Near by find a natural looking (to the hogg) and spread as much corn in piles so the hungry hoggs will not question its orgin but just eat it up ..after you have sufficent number gathering in to eat the corn, slowly and carefully come back in the day time and start 1 by 1 construct a fence all the time giving the cor out…all this over a period of time untill you have all four sides and a gate built. Pile the largest amount of corn at the back of the now constructed pen and let the now huge heard come on in..once you have all of them except for a few of the smartes and most radical…close the gate. and now wha-la you now have control..
            Sound familure? Social programs, United OBAMA Care, Tax Cut’s for the working class….All corn and we are caught and under the controll of this group of thugs!!!!!

      NO ONE WANTS A REVOLUTION! It may be necessary but we want to try everything we can to prevent it first. They know this as well as we do. Actually, I think that the revolution (if there is one) will come about when they start showing up at our doors with orders to confiscate all weapons. Many of us (at least here in Texas) will simply shoot them and go down shooting. Since I expect each such person to take at least one with them (and many times more) I suspect that those who send the men will run out before we run out of citizens. And I expect that after some of your neighbors get killed this way that you will see many of the rest simply getting together, as they did at Concord, and going to visit the local group trying to collect the guns.

    I read about the military having a virus on their systems. When I read the article, I expected that our politicians would buy this as a reason to have an internet kill switch. Plus many citizens. There were a couple problems.

    1. The introduction was by USB and not internet.
    2. They didn’t detect it for a period and thus it was able to infect multiple systems.

    #2 is actually the goal of viruses and hostile intrusions. So by the time you would activate an internet kill switch, the damage was already done. I am against an internet kill switch.

    It kills freedom of information. The consequences are greater than any perceived gains. We think of a broad internet kill switch, but reality is that this sort of thing already exists. China, Iran, and many DICTATORSHIPS. This isn’t a tool for freedom. It is a tool for oppression of the citizens. So why are the people all for this? It just amazes me that the very same people who want their freedom of information also want this and the internet to become a government controlled utility (FCC reclassifying and/or mandating).

    • 45caliber

      You are correct. No matter how they try to “pretty it up” it comes down to simple control.

    Question: Could it be true that the FCC is reclassifying the Internet as a telephone company, and, if true, it substantiates the fact that when Congress blocks the Obama administration from doing something, the White House always finds a way to get around the normal policy-making process and pursues its own agenda by other means, thereby going against the will of the American public?

    If the Federal government (current adminitration(Oba,a))does find an excuse to start an armed physical conflict or take away the firearms of we the people.
    Keep this one thing in mind that if they(govt) doubles it’s police and military, we the people far outnumber them by the armed millions.

      Also remember that the majority of those in the police and military would not go against the people.

          Its a fact I Know allot of military and police and they think the same way as we do!They are prepared!And allot more than you would believe.Im sure there is going to be a few that follow orders but they wont for long.Even the hard headed libs will see the light if not at the end of the tunnel.

          • 45caliber

            I agree with you. There may be some liberal police but not too many troops. The liberals believe it is wrong to defend our country. They believe all who would volunteer for the military to be prospective murderers who want a legal reason to kill someone. That’s the main reason they don’t trust vets. We’ve already proved we are murderers – even if we never saw a day on the front lines. Plus, they find that many liberals who do go in (at least during the days of draft) came back out changed. Most of them were now conservatives! They don’t want to risk that and discourage any child from wanting to go in.

            I wonder if that is one reason the Dems are allowing the war in the Mid-East to continue. It gets a lot of those untrustworthy vets out of the country so they don’t have to worry about them objecting to anything they might want to do to the rest of us.

            There are 100 million Americans with guns. We don’t know about unregistered. This country is approximately 6,000,000 square miles. How many troops would it take to control it. In Afghanistan there are 160,000 troops plus helicopters and drones and they don’t control diddley.

            Ron paul is a repub. now so not to lose votes because of the lack of third party votes.

          • independant thinker

            For a third party to be truly effective it will need to start on the local level> As people are elected to local positions move up to county then state offices. Only then will you have a viable third party that can affect things on the national level with any degree of success. The problem with that is it will take time and how much time do we have? The short term solution is to vote out incumbants as long as their opposition at least appears to be better while building the power base of a third party.

        • Christin

    why ou people keep thinking your vote matters is beyond me .what more proof do you need. look at obama’s attitude . he could care less what the congress say’s . he will just appoint a new commitee to handle what he wants. this system is going down and if your a part of it you’ll go with it. and by the way , if you really think god is blessing this country you better read your bible. stop listening to people that don’t use the bible unlessyou think man has the answer. man has had 6000 year since adam and eve to get it right and he hasn’t achived to much. god is not partial so why would he bless any country. read acts 10;34-35 then read mat 7;22-23. god only cares about his government not ours. say the our father prayer and listen to what he says.

Also, we need stand alone bills. One item to vote on not burying items that they can’t get passed on their own so they have to bury them within bills that they think they can pass. Where is the honesty in hiding crap from us. Oh wait, they think we the people don’t have the sense to come in out of the rain.

        I think that “riders bills” attached to another bill should not be allowed. I have seen many times thing get passed this way without us knowing about it. Off the top of my head many years ago there was a bill to raze the postage stamps 2 cents. On that bill congress put a rider bill and gave all of the a raze in pay and it wasn’t no 2 cents raze. It was $60,000 to 100,000. I can’t remember the amount anymore but the point is this should not be allowed. All bills should be stand alone bills only. They say it save time by doing it there way. I don’t dout it does save time because the would have one hell of a time getting some of this crap passed by it’s self.

Why aren’t they protesting in the senate chamber for obammy to close the border? Why aren’t they screaming the truth about what the forced unionization of state and local government employees is all about? You’ve seen some who claim to be repub’s (RINO’s I guess)bail and vote with the demorats. We won’t gain a thing if they do take over.

        Raggs you are so correct that their are many aligned with “O”, but so are there many aligned with the devil, and we know how that will end.

    If Congress behaves as it has hitorically, be on the look-out for the “Kill Bill” to come through with a title like the “Nuns, Puppies, Kittens and Baby Seals Bill”.

      You’re right. The chip mentioned by me below came about through the “Privacy Improvement Act.”

  • 45caliber

    There are basically only four ways today to pass information to someone else.

    You can talk to them, either in person or on a telephone.

    You can write something and send it to them by mail, text messaging, or telegraph.

    You can fax something to someone – another form of written message but it can also contain pictures and maps.

    You can email something.

    The telephones, fax machines, and computers all have a chip installed that allows the government to record and scan your messages. However, there is so much being transferred on internet that it is almost impossible to actually find something – and it takes some time to find it and act on it.

    The government simply wants to make sure that they can prevent anyone from sending info to another without being caught. Things such as, “Get your gun and a rope and meet me. We’re going Congress hunting.”

    We need to clean out comgress and vote out our so called leaders wile we can before it’s to late. Our freedom is going down the tube faster than I’ve ever seen it in my life time.

    When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny and oppression no matter how holy the motives.

    • 45caliber

      He was correct. In fact, his book “Starship Troopers” is actually more of a political statement than a novel. I agree that only vets should be allowed to hold office and vote. They have already demonstrated their willingness to put their lives on the line for their country.

      • DaveH

        Then you don’t follow the founders, 45. When our country was started, foreign entanglements were frowned upon. Our military has just become a tool for Big Government.

      If I remember correctly, he was a Democrat before he got defeated in a primary and continued to run as an independent. He still votes exactly the same way he did before.

      • TAKE BACK AMERICA

        I really liked and respected Joe right up to the point of his “Independent” move. To me it had an appearance of political power brokering. It made him newsworthy and secured name recognition. I think of him as todays politician where every move is made to secure re election. A true man of the Lobbyist.

        • Claire

          The lobbyists will always be involved. The Democrats and the Republicans will never get rid of them.

  • hundabuxt

    Folks I hate to be the barer of bad news but the only way to get the attention of the power elite in Washington is to either follow the stratigy of Martin King or Ghandi if you want to be passive or those of the more militant the names of which I choose not to print out of fear of persecution by the watchers almost certainly present here. However I will say that one of them had a beef with the IRS.
    If you recall, following the Watts riots in Los Angeles back in the 60′s the feds started dumping money into the inner city, which didn’t accomplish anything I might add. When the Rodney King trial was going on the black community was threatening violence if the officers were not convicted, the same threats preceeded the O J Simpson trial. Our so called “elected officials” serve other masters, certainly not those of us who consider ourselves patriotic Americans. In fact, with the exception of the perfunctory intercourse with constituants when not in DC, I get the impression they look upon us with comtempt. And why wouldn’t they? We don’t have high voter turn out usually so a relative few decide who and what represents us. The public schools system is a dismal failure unless dumbing down America is the goal, which they’ve accomplished brilliantly, so the average American couldn’t tell you who is next in line for the presidency if both Obama and Biden couldn’t perform for some reason. God help us if it happens because we’ll be living the Wizard of Oz story with the wicked witch from the east running the country! Most Americans couldn’t tell you the difference between the two houses of the legislature or how many branches of government we have and name them. Most Americans believe we’re a democracy when in fact we’re a republic and they couldn’t tell you what a republic actually is. I will say that there are encouraging signs that those of us who want to preserve America as the greatest nation on earth have awakened to the decline. I hope its not too late.

    • Raggs

      True, but that is exactly what the boneheads in DC are counting on.
      They know that the Sheeple cannot control the shepherd…( or so they think )… A lot of the fruitcakes that post here believe that money and their well-being falls from the obama tree… Well a bad seed does not produce good fruit.

  • Ed Blevins

    Why doesn’t some one in congress start drafting the articles of impeachment for Barack, BARRY or whatever that clowns name is,He is already guilty of treason. He swore on election day to up hold the constitution He has shredded that sacred document our ancestors gave their lives for. I have been doing my family tree and have a 4th. great grand father that fought in the revolutionary war so we could be free and able to speak our mind.

    • Angel Wannabe

      Us too Ed, one my husbands relations was wounded in the battle of Gettsburg, Pa_ My dad and three brothers all fought in WWII, each on different fronts at the same time. One came home with a Purple heart. All are gone, and I can guarantee, all of them are turning over in they’re graves.

    hundabutx, if you want to be like Martin L. King, you had better get several fraud grease balls like “Rev.” Al Sharpton, “Rev.” Jesse “Shake down” Jackson and few more sociakist democrats clowns as your models. Bo thanks ,I’ll take people defending themselves and unifing on as circumstances require. I notice not one socialist democrat, or any worm in any colleges are having problems with the underhanded way, that is going to happen with the squellching the internet. Still have any doubts about the National Socialist Democrat Union Party and the education system not being socialist controlled? Onumnutts wants total control like a dictator and his shulbs will give it to him.

    • TAKE BACK AMERICA

      The only ones that will “give it to him” are the Lobbyist’s as long as he gives them what THEY want. It’s not the Dems or the Independents, it’s the Benjamans.

    • hundabuxt

      I’m not necessarly a big fan of King, however I am a fan of Ghandi. That man was devoted to the brink of death.
      My point was an objective one. We have limited choices to get the attention of the power elite. Violence and passive resistance. In either case we have to have numbers who are willing to sacrifice virtually everything. Beck made a good case for passive resistance but I fear its too late for that.

      • TAKE BACK AMERICA

        It is way too late for that, our own history shows it. The sixty’s sit-ins prove it. We’ve all heard it before, “Follow the money”. You want to change the way our government works, make our tax’s the only source of their financial supply and cap their political contributions.

  • http://Verizon Bud G.

    I believe that any system that depends solely on Satellite and computers can be hit by cyber attack and sure there are systems in place that can be used for back up. I do not believe the internet should be shut down in any event. We have a number of very intelligent people in the field fighting cyber attacks daily.

    On another subject: Some one mentioned a third party for the coming elections. It is too late for the November elections have any of you have heard of Wayne Root of the Libertarian Party? This is a person who is extremely intelligent, very presentable and has the same ideals that many in these posts have. The ground swell for a third party is present but it would take a large effort and considerable funding to make it a reality.

    Sorry for the error: The word “but” should have been in the second paragraph, second line “elections but have”.

  • Al

    I was reading two letters to the Editor in my local paper this morning and they were claiming that the only reason people dislike Obama is because he is black. So, does that mean that no one can disagree with any of his policies because then they will be labeled as as racist.
    Do we no longer have debate because your opponent is of another race? Do we stifle all dissent? Gee, kinda sounds like China or the Soviet Union.
    For the first time in my life I find myself disagreeing with nearly every policy issue stance a president takes. The closest I can remember feeling like this is when Jimmy Carter was in the White House, when we had gas lines and double digit inflation.

  • PC Bob

    We hear a lot about who the enemy is. Each day it seems to change, with one day being the illegal aliens, the next day the blacks or the moslems, etc. I maintain that the real enemy is our own government. Seems like about everything they are doing is against us. Didn’t we already go through that, about 133 years ago? For the same reasons? Maybe we need to stop pointing our fingers at each other and take a long, hard look at Washington. The founding fathers gave us a gift, a way to clean out the riff raff. Remember November, and vote them out. And quickly, too, before they figure out a way to take that right away from us.

  • TAKE BACK AMERICA

    I agree, but unlike the majority posting here I think it’s time for the GOP to take a sabbatical. They seem incapable of the truth and unwilling to propose any solutions.
