"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Fools Among Us

Look around. How many people do you know who still say they “like” Barack Obama? While it is frustrating, there are reasons for that.

1. The progressive entitlement programs like welfare, which have been in existence for decades, have created a generation (or more) who only know the government supports them. They know no other way. The majority of these people are ignorant and lazy, and have been raised that way by their parents.

2. The true socialistic ideologues – whether organized or just indoctrinated through the higher education school systems over the past two decades.

3. The radical revolutionaries from the sixties, who never went away. They just went underground until the opportunity to surface presented itself. Well, that time is now, and they are everywhere – like ants.

4. And then there are the “lemmings”. Those individuals who believe that they need to watch out for everyone else, and that all other people are also required to watch out for everyone else, or they have no compassion, because they have been told so. These people are truly scary, because they are educated, but still don’t believe in personal responsibility. They believe that government must take a role in punishing and restricting industry because industry is bad, or industry has ruined the planet (or will).

What all these people do not seem to understand is this. The sweet taste of freedom, once sampled, is like candy to a child; never mind that we have lived “freedom” for centuries, and will not go willingly into a less free society. The conservative winds of change are gathering. And like the autumn storm sweeps the dying leaves from the trees, we will sweep the politicians from Washington.

Liberty is not an ephemeral ideal to be taken lightly. It’s an unyielding principle that cannot be diluted in our society without consequence. The conservative base of America, while slow to wake and slow to move, has indeed awakened. Watch out Washington – Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike. The conservatives are stalking you, and you have nowhere to hide. You no longer hold power over us, we know who you are. Be very, very afraid.

For your time in office is limited.
