"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

It's All Here


I implore each and every one of you to take the time to seriously read the article linked here (click on the title) and then to seriously consider the implications. I ask only that you do so with an open mind, and explore the possibilities this information presents to you. Follow the various links and absorb the information. When you are done, ask yourself how comfortable you feel. It's All Hollows Eve; has Communism come knocking at our door?

Wake Up America, The Nightmare Is Real!

The Real Obama Message?

  President Obama and the 111th Congress have continued on the path set along time ago by Lyndon Johnson. Entitlement program after entitlement program has been passed by Congresses for the past 45 years, and look where it has gotten us. I grant you that the reasons for passing the initial entitlement programs may have been based in compassion, but that is no longer the case - though the progressives would never tell you that. Now it's all about buying the votes to stay in power. As soon as every American can logically look at the issue, look in the mirror, and acknowledge that truth, the sooner we'll be back on the road to recovery. There's more truth in this picture than you may realize... Wake Up America!

Praise The Lord

For in His infinite wisdom He has once again provided for us! And while I have no evidence to back this claim, and it has yet to be disclosed, the actions of our government undeniably support my conclusion - that God has created, and the government has found, The Money Tree!

How else can we explain the excessive bailouts, the trillion dollar Health Care bill, the trillions of dollars that will be spent on Cap & Trade? How else can we explain how all the entitlement programs will be paid for, or how our massive debt - over $343,000 per man, woman and child in America - will be paid for?

Oh, the government is printing the money? Wow! Imagine if we could do that? Oh no, that would be called counterfeiting. Why can the government do it? Because they have legitimate plates? Hmmm,even though it is devaluing the dollar to the point where it will soon loose it's AAA rating and become unstable? What do they intend to use to back the dollar? When Jimmy Carter printed money in the 70's he increased the supply by 13%, and inflation sent interest rates to 20%. This administration has already increased the money supply by 120%; where do you think interest rates will peak this time around? Can you afford 30% interest rates on your mortgage? Can your children?

Watch out America, a scam is afoot!

Wake Up America!

What If There Is A Shred Of Possibility In This Scenario?

This is pretty scary. But is it possible? Glenn Beck has alluded to something like this happening, though not is such explicit terms. Analyze the events that have occurred the past year. Analyze where America is today, and where the rest of the world is, financially. Then make a decision to think about...

The One-Hour Meltdown

Hour Glass
The following is just my opinion. It is nothing more than my opinion. I have nothing to substantiate or prove any aspect of my opinion. My opinion is simply the logical conclusion of a law-abiding sixty-year old Christian grandfather who has both an engineering degree and an M.B.A. degree and who has seen both good times and hard times during his life.

The Current Situation:

At the present time every nation in the entire world is facing serious financial and social stress. If only a few nations were involved then it might be possible to contain the upcoming meltdown to a few specific geographical areas. This has been successfully done in the past. However, since the entire world is currently on the edge of the cliff, when the meltdown begins it will impact almost everyone on the face of the earth.

Unless God chooses to intervene, the meltdown is no longer avoidable. Our governments and our financial institutions are no longer in control. However, to keep the system working just a little longer they must maintain the illusion that they have the system under control. But the system is broken and it can't be fixed.

There are two reasons why the system can't be fixed:

1. It has grown beyond its own capacity to support itself.
2. It has become so complex that no one can do anything significant to fix it because it is hemorrhaging in too many different places.

The average person in every nation on the face of the earth knows the meltdown is coming. The wealthy people know it. The poor people know it. Nobody wants it to happen. But almost everyone is just patiently waiting for it to begin and at the same time hoping that it doesn't begin too soon.

Nobody knows when the meltdown will actually start. It may begin one-month from now. Or a year from now. Or three-years from now.

But almost everyone knows that at some future date the meltdown will occur.

This widespread knowledge of the impending disaster is the reason that when the disaster begins it will quickly and completely spiral out-of-control in one-hour or less. In my opinion, most people do not seriously believe it could happen this quickly. Most people expect a more gradual meltdown. They may be right because nobody can predict the future, and that includes myself.

The One-Hour Meltdown

However, my personal opinion is that once the meltdown begins then in less than one-hour it will quickly escalate far beyond anyone's ability to control or manage it on a worldwide basis. The five basic assumptions that cause me to believe in my "one-hour meltdown theory" are as follows:

1. Banks: The financial institutions around the world cannot withstand a full-scale worldwide bank run. Therefore, they have already made plans to immediately shut down the instant they are told to do so. Within minutes, all across the globe, all the ATM machines will be offline, all credit card and debit card verification transactions will be halted, and all banks will have their vaults locked and their doors locked and their building emptied of all personnel, except perhaps for some special security guards. All high-level bank executives will immediately disappear to a wide variety of remote safe unknown locations. All telephone call inquiries to any of the financial institutions will be automatically answered by a computer with a pre-recorded message similar to the following: "Our system is currently experiencing an extremely high call volume and therefore we are unable to answer your call at this time. Please try again later when our call volume returns to normal."

2. Governments: The vast majority of our government leaders all over the world are relatively intelligent individuals. They completely understand the ramifications of a "bank holiday" in our computer controlled financial economy. Therefore, all government offices will also be immediately shut down, and they will empty their buildings and lock their doors. Any transaction in progress, including any trials in progress, will be immediately halted and postponed until some future date. All high-level government officials, including all judges and tax officials, will immediately disappear to a wide variety of remote safe unknown locations.

3. Retail Businesses: Since they will be unable to process even simple transactions, all retail establishments, both large and small, will immediately lock their doors to prevent anyone else from entering. If possible, they will complete any transactions for customers already inside their building if those customers have enough cash to pay for their purchases. Any customers wishing to pay by check or credit card or debit card will be told that the verification system is down and their transaction can't be completed. All customers will then be immediately escorted to the doors and the doors will be briefly opened and then immediately locked after they exit. In addition, in a manner similar to what happened during the World Trade Center meltdown, each store's management may demand that their employees remain at their stations until further notice or they will lose their jobs for leaving without management's permission. But most of the more intelligent employees will leave at the same time as the store's last few remaining customers. The store's special security guards may or may not remain behind in order to protect the store with their lives. Since most of these special security guards are not paid exceptionally well, a large number of them may decide that they should return home and protect their own families instead.

4. Criminals: Anyone and everyone who has any criminal tendencies and who has been patiently waiting for this to happen will immediately see it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve their financial situation. More than likely the vast majority of these criminals have already made very detailed plans that includes exactly which businesses they are going to rob first, second, third, and so on. Any business with a reasonable level of cash-on-hand will be very high on every criminal's list. Every jewelry store and pawn shop that has any type of silver or gold jewelry, or precious stones (diamonds, rubies, emeralds, etc.), will be very high on everyone's list. The warfare that breaks out at these establishments between competing criminals will not be pleasant.

5. Normal People: Normal average people will begin looting. Grocery stores will be broken into and they will be completely emptied from wall-to-wall, including the rear storage area, in less than one-hour. Stores that have firearms, ammunition, appliances, clothing, shoes, or anything else needed by the average citizen will be emptied in less than one-hour. In skirmishes over the few remaining resources, normal average people will begin killing one another inside the stores, and in the parking lots outside the stores, and on the streets as these fully loaded vehicles try to escape with their loot.

The above events will all happen simultaneously during the first one-hour of the meltdown. After that first hour has passed, things will really begin to get nasty. Everyone will quickly realize there are not are not enough law enforcement personnel to protect everyone and everything. Although the military will probably be ordered to protect specific high priority establishments and resources, there will simply not be enough military personnel to protect individual civilians or businesses.

Events After the One-Hour Meltdown

Almost everyone who has lost their jobs, their vehicles, their homes, and their life savings will now have nothing more to lose by seeking some form of retribution against the society that took everything away from them that they once "partially" owned.

Anyone who has received a minor speeding ticket in the recent past and who honestly could not afford the fine will be in a very unpleasant mood. Everyone who has had their property taxes increased at the same time their income decreased will not be in a good mood. Everyone who has had their credit card interest rate increased at the same time their employer was reducing the number of hours they worked each week will not be in a good mood. Everyone who has been reduced from a two-family income down to a one-family income will not be in a good mood. Everyone who lost their job because their employer went bankrupt will not be in a good mood.

The vast majority of these individuals will have been just barely surviving in a situation where they were living hand-to-mouth on government welfare or the charity of the local community (unemployment checks, welfare checks, food stamps, food pantries, etc.). The instant they realize there will be no more government welfare or charity, then these individuals will have no hope for survival unless they are able to immediately acquire the food and other resources they need before it is all gone. Anyone who tries to stand in their way, or who tries to reason with them, will have a life expectancy of less than three-seconds.

After the stores are all emptied, and there is nothing else to be stolen, the tempers of the individuals who were not successful in obtaining what they needed will turn violent. When that happens they will form into huge mobs without being asked to. And they will begin seeking vengeance on anyone or any establishment they have a grudge against. Banks, and government buildings, and courthouses will be burned to the ground. Anyone still inside those buildings will probably be shot or hanged. Then these mobs will start looking for the high-ranking officials that they believe are the source of their misery. But the vast majority of these high-ranking officials will have already disappeared to safe places unknown to anyone but themselves.

If you have not previously thought about the above, or if you are not intellectually prepared to deal with it, then the chances are not very good for your long-term survival.

If you have been waiting to buy a really critical item for your family's long-term self-sufficiency because you thought you could buy it at the very beginning of a slow gradual breakdown of society, then it will no longer be available. Your family will have to try to survive without that item, if that is possible. Since the vast majority of us have very limited financial resources it would be helpful if you could prioritize your purchases right now before it is too late. The following article on my web site describes how this could be done:

Realistic Self-Sufficiency: The Do's and the Don'ts.

If the meltdown begins while you are away from home then your highest priority should be to collect the other members of your family and return home. Do not be tempted to participate in the looting. Regardless of what you think you might need, it would be foolish to risk your life and the lives of your family members at any store or business that is being looted. You should consider yourself "blessed" if you are successful at making it safely home with all your loved ones.

In my opinion, after the meltdown begins it will take about 24-hours for the vast majority of the criminals and the looters to self-destruct to at least one-half of their original number. In fact, human greed will probably reduce their numbers by a lot more than 50%. The reason this will happen is because every criminal will want whatever the other criminal has in his or her possession and he or she will probably be willing to kill to get it. The criminals and looters that survive will be the more ruthless and savage members of our society and they will gradually form into small gangs for protection and for their own mutual survival. When that happens things will just continue to get worse.

If you live close to the outside edge of a heavily populated area, and you can quickly and easily get onto a good road or interstate leading away from the danger area, and if you have a safe destination already planned, and if travel to that destination does not take you through another heavily populated area, then it may be possible for you to escape to your "retreat" if you act immediately and you do not hesitate.

However, if you live inside a heavily populated area, or if you are a good distance from a safe exit road or interstate, or if you do not have a safe destination to travel to, then loading your family into your vehicle and trying to drive anywhere at this time would probably not be a very good idea. In this situation, when the meltdown begins your best chance for survival will probably be to wait out the worst part of the meltdown inside your home. You should also be prepared to defend your home and your family during this difficult transition period.

I fully realize that the above suggestion goes against almost everyone's recommended strategy of "getting out of Dodge" (G.O.O.D) at the last minute. You are an adult and you will need to make your own decision in this matter. But before you decide, perhaps you should thoughtfully consider your chances for long-term survival in each of the following two scenarios:

1. Your family is trapped inside your vehicle in a traffic jam that is grid-locked and, although you don't know it yet, the cars in front of you and behind you are not going to move one-inch for the next several years. You and your family members quickly become physically and emotionally fatigued by the long wait inside your vehicle. Everyone needs to use the bathroom. Nobody can get any real rest. And as you watch one horror story after another unfold outside the windows of your vehicle you become terrified that you will not live to see another day. You are trapped inside your vehicle many, many miles from your home and travel in any direction by foot or by bicycle at this time would be suicidal.

2. Your family is temporarily trapped inside your home with whatever resources you have in your home. You can still use the bathroom in the privacy of your own home. You can still eat and drink in safety. Each member of your family can sleep in his or her own bed while one or more members of your family remains awake and on guard duty. On some future date, after your family has eaten a good meal and everyone is completely rested and mentally and physically alert, then perhaps on a dark rainy night your family will be able to escape by riding bicycles or by walking out of the danger zone to some safe remote place where you already have supplies pre-positioned and waiting for you.

In my opinion, neither of the above two scenarios is a pleasant one to think about. But if I had to choose between them I would select the second option.

Three Questions

Please allow me to ask you the following three questions:

1. How many people do you personally know who do not need to eat?
2. Where does most of the meat, bread, fruit, and vegetables that are consumed by the people inside a city actually come from?
3. If food deliveries into the city were stopped, how long would the city continue to be a safe place to live?

If you are satisfied with your answers to the above three questions and you still want to live in a big city then you should continue to do so. However, if you are not satisfied with your answers to the above three questions, then perhaps right now would be a good time to think about some other options for your family's survival.

Some Good News

Before you completely lose heart, please allow me to share some really good news with you. The meltdown hasn't started yet. You still have time to significantly improve your family's chances of surviving the upcoming meltdown.

Have you lost your job? That is good news. You can now relocate to a more lightly populated area.

Has the bank foreclosed on your home? That is good news. You can now relocate to a more lightly populated area.

Are you now living inside your vehicle? That is good news. If you can come up with some gas money then your can now relocate to a more lightly populated area.

You don't need to move to the unexplored wilderness in Alaska. You don't need to move into the heart of the Arizona desert. You just need to relocate to an area that is more lightly populated than a big city. The area you select should meet the following minimum criteria:

1. It is not on a major freeway or interstate.
2. It is at least several hundred feet above sea level.
3. It is surrounded by farm land, dairy cows, and other typical farm livestock such as horses, pigs, sheep, goats, and chickens.
4. It has a history of good average rainfall (not too much rain or too little rain).
5. It has a reasonable supply of trees and forest timber land.
6. It has a few nearby manufacturing facilities of any size.
7. Its residents still have the right to own firearms to protect themselves.
8. It has short mild winters.

You are smart. You could probably find a place like the above that is somewhere between 60 to 600 miles of where you currently live. When you get there, start looking for a new job.

At the current time good jobs are exceptionally difficult to find. Therefore, if you still have a really good job, then you would probably be better advised to keep your current job. But you could still move your loved ones to a small safe farming community that is at least 30 miles away from any heavily populated area, and which meets the first seven of the above eight minimum criteria. This would mean that you would have to commute one or two-hours each day to get to your current job. But your family would be safe when the meltdown begins. And if the meltdown occurs when you are at home with your family, then you would be there to help protect them. If the meltdown occurs while you are at work, and if you leave work immediately and don't stop anywhere, then there would be a reasonable chance that you might get back home before 24-hours has passed. This would require that you always have at least one-half tank of gas inside your vehicle's gas tank each day when you arrive at work. Finally, your survival would be greatly increased if you also had a little food and water, a few basic survival items, and a bicycle inside your vehicle that you could ride if you got caught in a grid-lock traffic jam. Most people will not abandon their vehicle immediately because they have an emotional attachment to their vehicle and to just abandon it would not "feel" like the most logical thing to do. The reason is because these people have survived traffic jams in the past by just waiting for them to eventually unravel. But this time it will be different. The traffic jam will never unravel. (Note: If it becomes necessary, park your vehicle on the side of the road and lock it, if that is possible.)


The vast majority of you will probably not share my opinion on this topic because it is just too "scary" and therefore it just can't happen. However, if you have taken the time to read this entire article then at least you now know about my "one-hour meltdown theory" and you can include it as one of your highly unlikely future scenarios. And if it should actually happen then at least you will not be too surprised by the events as they quickly begin to transpire.

On the other hand, if you think my "one-hour meltdown theory" is not all that ridiculous, then there are three things you could be doing right now to better prepare for the serious hard times ahead:

1. If you have not already done so, then move to a lightly populated area.
2. Pray often.
3. Pray sincerely.


In order to minimize the number of future emails about the above article, on July 29, 2009 I decided to add this postscript to my original article.

As I mentioned in the above introduction, nobody can predict the future, and that includes myself.

And as I mentioned in the above conclusion, the vast majority of you will probably not share my opinion on this topic.

Instead of a "bank holiday" almost any reasonably intelligent individual could easily select a different trigger event, or combination of trigger events, that lead to the inevitable meltdown.

And, instead of a "one-hour meltdown," almost anyone could modify one or more of the original assumptions and change the time frame to 24-hours, or three-days, or two-weeks, or nine-months, or seven-years.

However, since writing the above article seven-days ago, so far I have not received any emails from anyone who believes the meltdown will never happen. The only points of disagreement are on the trigger event and the speed at which the meltdown will unfold.

Individuals who do not believe a "one-hour meltdown" is possible generally believe that our government and financial leaders have some reasonable degree of control over the social and economic factors that are rapidly deteriorating worldwide.

And those individuals who believe the meltdown will be triggered by a different event, such as a terrorist attack (similar to the World Trade Center disaster) or a nuclear explosion in some large city, generally believe that someone or some nation must intentionally do something disastrous to initiate the meltdown.

Since I can't predict the future I have no valid way to respond to these differences of opinion. As far as I am concerned, everyone has a right to his or her own opinion, and that includes myself.

As I stated in my article, I simply believe that our leaders do not have things under control and that a worldwide bank run could happen unexpectedly at any time, and our leaders have no way to prevent it or to contain it once it begins. It could happen on any day of the week and at any time during the day. But once it starts our leaders will immediately declare a "bank holiday" to prevent catastrophic damage to the financial system and to the reputations of our financial leaders.

May I please use the following analogy. The current worldwide financial situation is like a passenger bus being driven by a bus driver whose future employment depends on keeping to the bus schedule and maintaining the bus passengers confidence in the bus company. The bus is currently being driven down a straight stretch of highway on a really cold rainy day. But the bus is gradually picking up speed, and the temperature is quickly dropping. The bus passengers can see that ice is starting to form in different spots, and that there are some really dangerous curves just ahead. The driver calmly reassures all the passengers that he or she currently has the bus completely under control and therefore nobody should worry because the future will not be any different from the past or the present. However, the smart people on the bus politely ask the driver to stop the bus and when the bus temporarily stops, they get off the bus and they tell the driver they will walk the rest of the way. The remainder of the passengers have no desire to walk in the freezing rain and therefore the calm words of the driver helps to reassure them and they stay inside the bus as it starts back down the icy highway. The bus quickly picks up speed and then it enters the first dead-man's curve on the edge of a 1,000-foot cliff. The entire curve is completely covered with two-inches of ice. In a matter of seconds the people still on the bus will be no more. The people who got off the bus will still be alive but their continued survival will depend on how prepared they are and whether or not they actually know how to survive in their current extremely difficult circumstances. If they are already wearing a waterproof winter coat and waterproof footwear and they have some matches and some food and water then there is a good chance they will live to see another day.

May I now please interpret my own analogy. The bus is our current worldwide economy. The bus driver represents our current government and financial leaders. The ice represents the fiat money that is currently being increased at an ever accelerating rate. The dead-man's curve is a "bank holiday." The people still on the bus are the ones who believe that our leaders have a lot more control over our worldwide economy than they really do, and they are leaving most of their money inside the financial system, and they are continuing to live inside a big city. The people who got off the bus are the ones who live in a more lightly populated area and they are using whatever money they currently have to purchase the things they know they will desperately need in the future.

The above article is completely theoretical. The only reason I wrote the article is to provide you with a possible future scenario that you may not have considered too seriously in the past. However, it is my personal conviction that there is an extremely high probability that our future will be forever changed by a simple unexpected "bank holiday" that results in a "one-hour meltdown" of civilization as we currently know it. And, as I mentioned in the conclusion to my original article, I already know that most of you will not share this opinion with me. And that is perfectly okay with me and I am not in the least bit offended.

Where Is Your Self-Respect?

You may not agree with the political views I hold. You may not believe, as I believe, that America is in peril from within, by the very people we have elected to government and those who they associate with. You may not see, as I see, that we are at a crossroads and that when Obama said he was "5 days away from fundamentally transforming America" he meant it. But make no mistake, many, of which I am one, have taken a stand. I believe the stand I've taken is based in fact and truth; love for country and liberty for ALL.

Others, many very powerful, have taken a stand against my position. They want to revolt against the capitalist system. They want to socialize America - they're well on their way with the auto company takeover, health reform, cap & trade, regulation of communication mediums, ownership through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac of over 50% of ALL property in America, and The Climate Change Treaty which is soon to be signed by our esteemed leader in Copenhagen, and which will create a one-world entity to oversee that treaty.They are in the process of devaluing the dollar. They have empowered unions (but to what end? I contend we will know by the mid-term elections).

So, where do you stand? Are you the person who holds views based upon your own research or are you the person who is still "the good little lemming" following along because so-and-so said so? Are you the person who has so much disdain for the promise of America that you can casually sit on the fence, in your own little world, while the country disintegrates beneath you? Are you that apathetic? Where is your self-respect?

I can't respect that type of person. I believe you need to take a stand based on knowledge! I don't care which side you chose, if it's what you really believe, but, by God, take a stand!! And then live with your stand, and what it changes America into. Because, make no mistake, America is about to change. She may change for the good, but she may change for the worse. Your stand WILL make a difference.

Wake Up America!

If Obama Had Told Us Before His Election

by Phyllis Schlafly October 16, 2009

If Barack Obama had campaigned on what he has actually done in his first 300 days in office, would he have been elected? That's the question so many are asking today.

If Obama had told us he would appoint 34 Czars, reporting only to himself and not vetted or confirmed in the constitutional way, building a powerful unitary executive branch of government, would he have been elected? What if he had told us that his Green Jobs Czar had been a Communist, that the Science Czar wrote in a college textbook that compulsory "green abortions" are an acceptable way to control population growth, and that the Diversity Czar has spoken publicly of getting white media executives to "step down" in favor of minorities?

If Obama had told us he would take over the automobile industry faster than any socialist dictator ever nationalized an industry, fire the CEO of General Motors and replace him with a Democratic Party campaign contributor, would Obama have been elected? If Obama had campaigned on closing down thousands of profitable car dealers, nearly all Republicans, would we have believed that this vindictive financial retaliation against those who didn't vote for Obama could happen in America?

If Hugo Chavez, the Communist who nationalized most of Venezuela's industries, had said before the election that "Comrade Obama" would nationalize the U.S. automobile industry and "end up to his right," would anybody have believed it? If talk shows had warned against such a socialist takeover, would the Obama-loving media have accused them of McCarthyism?

If Obama had told us he would spend $3 billion in a Cash for Clunkers program that would use taxpayers' funds to buy mostly foreign cars and grind up the used American cars traded in to make them unusable, would he have been elected?

If Obama had told us that his Stimulus package is a sham because it does not create private-sector jobs (as a tax cut would do), so that the unemployment rate has risen to nearly 10 percent, with 15 million Americans unemployed plus another 11 million underemployed, could he have been elected?

If Obama had told us his Supreme Court pick would be a woman who said repeatedly that a "Latina woman" would make better decisions than "a white male," that his pick for chief State Department lawyer would be a transnationalist who wants to integrate foreign law into law binding on U.S. citizens, and that his pick for Regulations Czar argues that animals are entitled to have lawyers to sue humans in court, would Obama have been elected?

If we had known that Obama would be totally incompetent as commander-in-chief of his chosen war in Afghanistan, and would not speak to the general in the field for 70 days, ignoring his dire report for six weeks, would Obama have been elected?

If Obama had told us he would have the government guarantee 90 percent of all U.S. mortgages, imposing $5 trillion in off-budget debt on U.S. taxpayers who had faithfully made their own mortgage payments, would he have been elected? And what if Obama had told us he would have the taxpayers take over 80 percent of all student loans at a cost of $1 trillion over the next decade?

If Obama had told us that he would make the U.S. government a major shareholder in Citigroup (one of the world's largest banks), would you have believed he could get away with this socialist takeover?

If Obama had admitted that his health care plan would include the same provisions for which he ran negative TV ads against Hillary Clinton (a federal mandate requiring every American to buy health insurance) and against John McCain (a tax on high-cost employer-based plans), would Obama have been elected?

And what if Obama had told us that his federal health plan would pay for all abortions without regard to the Hyde Amendment, and provide full health care (including private doctor visits) to immigrants without requiring proof of legal residence?

If Obama had campaigned on increasing federal spending and debt from a multi-billion-dollar level to multi-trillions, would he have been elected? And what if Obama had told us that his promise to "spread the wealth around" would balloon his first year's budget deficit to $1.6 trillion?

If Obama had told us that his promise to "spread the wealth around" meant wiping out the Republican welfare reform of 1996 and increasing annual welfare spending by 39 percent to almost $1 trillion a year by the end of his first term, would he have been elected?

If Obama had declared during his campaign that his first major speech abroad would be to the Muslim world, and that he would proclaim in Muslim Turkey that "one of the great strengths of the United States is . . . we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation," would he have been elected?

Editorial: I think NOT!

Climate Change?

You've heard about "Global Warming", now called "Climate Change" because those making the global warming claim realized that the temperature wasn't really increasing after all. Do you believe that "Climate Change" is going to be the death of the planet as proponents of that issue claim? If so, why? Do you really believe the planet, one that has existed for millions of years, could be destroyed by civilization in 100 years? Don't you think that belief is a bit arrogant? The days get lighter (or darker) earlier (or later) all the time, do we affect that? The tides come in and the tides go out, do we affect that? The circle of life continues, year after year, do we affect that? The tectonic plates continue to move under the earth's surface, do we affect that? Sea level's lower and rise over time, and have done so for millenniums; do we affect that? If you are a Believer, then you know the Earth was created by God, and as such cannot be destroyed by man. If you are a Non-Believer, where is the science that backs the Climate Change claim? There is none. Nothing definitive can be sited to prove that claim. In his fictitious book, State of Fear, Michael Crichton (author of Jurassic Park)tells the story of the scam that is "Climate Change". He provides footnotes from three years of research prior to writing the story that proves that "Global Warming" and "Climate Change" are just a hoax perpetrated by governments to further their cause(s). I submit to you that the real purpose of the "Climate Change" scam is to begin the funding of, and the transformation into, a one-world government. In December, Barack Obama will attend a conference in Copenhagen at which he will sign a "Climate Change" Treaty. That treaty will provide that governments from the west MUST pay restitution to third-world non-industrialized nations (redistribution of wealth on a grand scale). It calls for a one-world government entity to oversee the processes outlined in that treaty. If ratified by our Senate, it supersedes the authority of our Constitution! So before you jump on the "Climate Change" bandwagon because it's an issue that sounds good, do your research. Read State of Fear. Investigate the truth of the science. Stop being a lemming, and decide what you believe based upon personal knowledge, not something you've been force-fed by the government or the media. This is not the time for any of us to be sheep. It's time for us to be the shepherds.

Resignation Letter

Resignation Letter

Dear President Obama, Members of Congress, and Fellow Citizens

Effective immediately I am resigning from my position as a citizen of the United States of America – a once great and proud society. I find that I can prosper better if I am not a citizen. I can take day work, get paid in cash, and pay no taxes. I will get free healthcare, and as a non-citizen with no reportable income, will pay no taxes for that privilege. I will receive housing and food grants, and again, as a non-citizen with no reportable income I will pay no taxes for that entitlement! I can fully imagine that from my new perspective as a non-citizen I will once again see America as a great country. I thank God I have finally seen the light! Why didn’t someone try to enlighten me before now? Oh, I see, you all wanted someone to be left in “old America” paying taxes to pay for all these freebies! Well, I’ve caught on. And don’t worry, shhh, I won’t say a word! I know the truth now. I know we still need some “unenlightened” people to pay taxes for this windfall! But have any of you discussed what happens when everyone finally finds out about this? Who will pay the taxes then? Who will support us then? Am I missing something? Oh, you say a new one-world government will be implemented? And working people from other countries will support our entitlements? Wow, these guys have it all figured out, don’t they? Ok, I’m all in!!

I just hope there’s life on other planets, because eventually we’re going to need their taxes too!

Wake Up America!

Dismantling America

Dismantling America
By Thomas Sowell
October 27, 2009

Just one year ago, would you have believed that an unelected government official, not even a Cabinet member confirmed by the Senate but simply one of the many "czars" appointed by the President, could arbitrarily cut the pay of executives in private businesses by 50 percent or 90 percent?

Did you think that another "czar" would be talking about restricting talk radio? That there would be plans afloat to subsidize newspapers-- that is, to create a situation where some newspapers' survival would depend on the government liking what they publish?

Did you imagine that anyone would even be talking about having a panel of so-called "experts" deciding who could and could not get life-saving medical treatments?

Scary as that is from a medical standpoint, it is also chilling from the standpoint of freedom. If you have a mother who needs a heart operation or a child with some dire medical condition, how free would you feel to speak out against an administration that has the power to make life and death decisions about your loved ones?

Does any of this sound like America?

How about a federal agency giving school children material to enlist them on the side of the president? Merely being assigned to sing his praises in class is apparently not enough.

How much of America would be left if the federal government continued on this path? President Obama has already floated the idea of a national police force, something we have done without for more than two centuries.

We already have local police forces all across the country and military forces for national defense, as well as the FBI for federal crimes and the National Guard for local emergencies. What would be the role of a national police force created by Barack Obama, with all its leaders appointed by him? It would seem more like the brown shirts of dictators than like anything American.

How far the President will go depends of course on how much resistance he meets. But the direction in which he is trying to go tells us more than all his rhetoric or media spin.

Barack Obama has not only said that he is out to "change the United States of America," the people he has been associated with for years have expressed in words and deeds their hostility to the values, the principles and the people of this country.

Jeremiah Wright said it with words: "God damn America!" Bill Ayers said it with bombs that he planted. Community activist goons have said it with their contempt for the rights of other people.

Among the people appointed as czars by President Obama have been people who have praised enemy dictators like Mao, who have seen the public schools as places to promote sexual practices contrary to the values of most Americans, to a captive audience of children.

Those who say that the Obama administration should have investigated those people more thoroughly before appointing them are missing the point completely. Why should we assume that Barack Obama didn't know what such people were like, when he has been associating with precisely these kinds of people for decades before he reached the White House?

Nothing is more consistent with his lifelong patterns than putting such people in government-- people who reject American values, resent Americans in general and successful Americans in particular, as well as resenting America's influence in the world.

Any miscalculation on his part would be in not thinking that others would discover what these stealth appointees were like. Had it not been for the Fox News Channel, these stealth appointees might have remained unexposed for what they are. Fox News is now high on the administration's enemies list.

Nothing so epitomizes President Obama's own contempt for American values and traditions like trying to ram two bills through Congress in his first year-- each bill more than a thousand pages long-- too fast for either of them to be read, much less discussed. That he succeeded only the first time says that some people are starting to wake up. Whether enough people will wake up in time to keep America from being dismantled, piece by piece, is another question-- and the biggest question for this generation.

If this writer - who happens to be a black man from California, arguably the most liberal ethnicity in the most liberal state - can see the problems Obama has infected us with, then where the hell is everyone else??? To ALL of you who refuse to watch the news for 2-3 hours per day, who refuse to listen to talk radio whenever the opportunity arises, who do not search the issues extensively on the internet, and who can not refute the facts presented in those forums, I say to you: You are ALSO part of the problem. Your ignorance will be the demise of America. Sorry if that offends anyone, but it's true! On second thought, I don't think I really am sorry, so I retract that appology.

Wake Up America!!

Progressive Leaning Republican Senators

Here is the list of Republican Senators who are part of the progressive problem facing America. The worst offenders are at the top of the list. Do your research, but in my opinion they should ALL be voted out!

Susan Collins (ME)
Olympia Snowe (ME)
Kit Bond (MO)
Judd Gregg (NH)
George Voinovich (OH)
Bob Corker (TN)
Lamar Alexander (TN)
Richard Lugar (IN)
John Barrasso (WY)
Mike Enzi (WY)
John Kyl (AZ)
John McCain (AZ)
John Ensign (NV)
Kay Bailey Hutchinson (TX)
Lisa Murkowski (AK)
Tom Coburn (OK)
George LeMieux (FL)- He's only been in the Senate for about two months!!!

The following Republicans also have voted for progressive measures, but to a lesser degree. So if there are more conservative candidates running, consider voting for them, and voting these individuals into retirement!

Jeff Sessions (AL)
Mitch McConnell (KY)
Lindsay Graham (SC)
Robert Bennett UT)
Orin Hatch (UT)
Richard Shelby (AL)
Jim Risch (ID)
Mike Crapo (ID)
Thad Cochran (MS)
John Thune (SD)
Roger Wicker (MS)
Jim DeMint (SC)
David Vitter (LA)

Only these individuals have been true to the values and principles of conservative America! Hmmm, Georgia's on my mind...

Saxby Chmabliss (GA)
Johnny Isakson (GA)
Charles Grassley (IA)
Pat Roberts (KS)
Sam Brownback (KS)
Jim Bunning (KY)
Richard Burr (NC)
Mike Johanns (NE)
James Inhofe (OK)
John Cornyn (TX)

Wake Up America!

Don't Get Confused

There are a lot of political pundits on TV espousing the theory that the Republican Party is on the verge of a resurgence. Even Newt Gingrich, possibly the smartest pundit out there, is publicly stating this. But I contend that a Republican Party resurgence would be a by-product of a Conservative resurgence. For it is conservatives who have mobilized, and conservatives who will flock to the polls come 2010. It is Conservatives who will run against progressive ideologues in both major parties. So please, don't be confused once 2010 comes and goes, and 2012 looms on the horizon. Don't vote the Party. Forget the labels. Vote the most conservative candidate available in every race in your area. That is the only way to reverse this disastrous course we are on. God Bless America!

Wake Up America!
