"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

The Subtle Attempt At Persuasion From A President Tilting America Towards Socialism

Obama says Beck, Limbaugh fuel 'troublesome' political climate
Fri Apr 2, 12:47 pm ET

In an interview with Harry Smith on CBS' "Early Show" Friday morning, President Obama called out Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh as purveyors of "vitriol" - creating a climate in which he's called a "socialist" and even a "Nazi."

Smith asked the president if he was "aware of the level of enmity that crosses the airwaves and that people have made part of their daily conversation about you." Obama replied, "When you've listened to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck it's pretty apparent." The rancor is "troublesome," he said, but he acknowledged it's also a recurring phenomenon.

"Keep in mind that there have been periods in American history where this kind of - this kind of vitriol comes out," he said. "It happens often when you've got an economy that is making people more anxious and people are feeling that there's a lot of change that needs to take place. But that's not the vast majority of Americans."

Walking with Smith on the grounds of the White House, the president said that he is "concerned about a political climate in which the other side is demonized" and that "everybody has a responsibility, Democrats or Republicans, to tone down some of this rhetoric." What's different about today, Obama suggested, is the way overheated rhetoric has moved into the mainstream.

"It used to be that somebody who said something crazy, they might be saying it to their next-door neighbor, or it might be on some, you know, late-night AM station at the very end of the radio dial."

Asked by Smith if the name-calling bothers him, Obama replied that all presidents develop a "pretty thick skin." Still, he added that he hopes that Americans will start to lose their taste for vitriol.

"I do think that there is a tone and tenor that needs to change, where we can disagree without being disagreeable or making wild accusations about the other side. And I think that's what most Americans would like to see, as well." --Brett Michael Dykes is a national affairs writer for Yahoo! News

So Mr. Obama, I recall there was not a word from you when all your leftist friends were calling conservative Americans "tea bagger's", "astroturf" and "extremists" - in fact you encouraged it, and even engaged in that rhetoric, telling us all that you didn't "mind cleaning up the mess, you just wanted [us] to get out of the way". At the time you smirked smugly, thinking you were a real commedien. Remember that vitriol? How about when you stated, without a shred of evidence to back up your claim, that the cambridge police "acted stupidly"? Think the tone and the tenor should have changed any back then? Nope, I sure don't hear any vitriol coming out of your mouth...

Oh, and by the way, the truth hurts; I've yet to see or hear ONCE that your office picked up the phone to "set the record straight" on the Glenn Beck show, though he has requested you do so time and time again - IF WHAT HE IS REPORTING IS WRONG! He even went so far as to put in a direct line to the Whitehouse from his studio. Still no one has called him. So, for the record, when you stop acting like a socialist, I guess we'll stop calling you one. I don't see that happening any time soon, though, do you?

God Bless America!

I Just Had To Share This

I am sitting here shaking my head. I just can not believe what I saw at this link. How is this even possible in America? After you view it, ask yourself how the Admiral was able to contain himself. That is military self control!


Nickie Goomba, thank you for the biggest laugh I've had in a long, long time. Of course, it didn't last very long once I remembered this guy is one of those "trial lawyers" who voted for our "new" healthcare system. Has EVERY Democrat lost his or her mind? Biden, Johnson, Pelosi, Ried, Dodd, Schumer, Patterson, Hoyer, Frank, Obama... the list goes on and on. And they're running our country? Are they running it, or ruining it? It's quite obvious the sins of the '60's has caught up with them all! We are living in the Cuckoo's Nest!

God Bless America!

Beware Of The Wide Brush

You know, it makes me laugh! All these accusations by the left about how racist conservative America is; how hateful conservative America is; even how eager for violence conservative America is. Well, I don't buy into their plan to guilt us into silence. This is America! When I disagree with a policy of this administration, I have the right to do so - and it's not a racist act because our President had a black father. If I disagree with Barney Frank's politics, which I surely do, I am not a homophobe - even though Barney is quite gay. If I disagree with Nancy Pelosi's politics because I think she is a certifiable loon, that does not mean that I am a woman hater or chauvanistic. It just means I can't stand that particular woman or her politics! Pure and simple, isn't it? So all you progressive Dems in Washington, stop painting people like me with the wide brush. Stop painting conservative America with the guilt brush. It used to work, I think. But we've undergone a transformation ourselves these past 18 months. And we're not buying what you're selling any longer. Oh well, there goes some of that power you used to weild. Haha, we're coming after you in November! Uh oh, was that a violent statement? LOL, LMAO!! My bad I guess!

Like A Handful Of Sand, The Republic Is Slipping Through Our Fingers

Mr. Franklin, And The Rest Of Our Founders, Please Accept Our Most Sincere Apologies...

How is it possible that EVERY American can't see the Glory of America's past, and want that for their family's future? Why are so many Americans (about a 3rd by the latest count) intent on "fundamentally" changing her? What do they think they'll gain? Or are they even thinking at all... 

It Was A Republic, But We Couldn’t Keep It

March 29, 2010 by Bob Livingston

Will it never end?

Will the daily, relentless assault on our freedoms by the current socialist-in-chief, President Barack Obama, and the socialist Democrat-controlled Congress never end?
Will the constant pounding and pounding on the Constitution by Obama and Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the rest of the socialist elite elected class—as they work to not just chip away at our nation’s foundation as progressives before them, but to obliterate it completely—never end?
Will the takeover of business and industry never end?
Will the calls for a cap-and-trade system that will raise taxes and energy costs and further erode out economic well-being never end?
Will the push for amnesty for illegal aliens never end?
Will the spending and the money printing and currency debasement never end?
Will the hubris of the elected class never end?

Apparently not.

Day by day; week by week; month by month the socialist Democrats pounded away at so-called healthcare reform. In office for 14 months, the Obama-Pelosi-Reid triumvirate worked to enact a socialist, European-style big government healthcare system on America.

The American people didn’t want what Obama, Reid and Pelosi were peddling. By 59 percent to 39 percent, according to the latest CNN/Opinion Research poll, Americans opposed Obamacare.

And they said so over and over. They said “no” to the secrecy of the bills, which were crafted in smoke-filled rooms, behind closed doors and foisted upon the public at the moment of the vote. They said “no” to the cost which kept growing and growing with each incarnation. They said “no” to the Louisiana Purchase (to get Mary Landrieu’s vote), the Cornhusker Kickback (to garner Ben Nelson’s support) and to the Gator Aid (to secure the support of senior citizens).

They said “no” by marching on Washington D.C., by the tens of thousands. They said “no” through the Tea Parties. They said so through calls and letters. They said “no” at town hall meetings. They said “no,” “no,” “No,” “NO!”

They said “no” at the voting booth in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts. Yet the socialist Democrats passed it anyway.

So the people ask, “What part of no don’t you understand?”

Know this: Pelosi, Reid and Obama—they understand. They just don’t care. It’s the progressive way.

Responding to questions about the special favors garnered by recalcitrant Senators in order to enlist their support, Reid replied with something to the effect of: That’s the legislative process. If a Senator didn’t get something he wasn’t doing his job.

Hey. It’s only money, and printing it is cheap.

As Pelosi responded when asked where Congress gets the authority to mandate United States citizens purchase health insurance: “Are you serious?”

Well, yes Madame Speaker, Constitutional issues are serious business to us. They should be to you. But they’re not. That’s because the Constitution limits their power over the citizenry and power is what the socialist elected elites seek.

If the Constitution was important to the socialist elite there would have been an open process in putting together a bill that reformed the health insurance system by letting the free market system work rather than further empowering government. And certainly there would have been no talk of using parliamentary trickery—the Slaughter Rule, also known as Deem and Pass—to pass it.

If the Constitution was important to the socialists there would be no provisions mandating that people buy something simply for being American and no need for 14 states to file suit against the Federal government for violating the 10th Amendment.

If the Constitution was important to the socialists Americans wouldn’t be sitting back asking themselves, “What’s next on their agenda: Another stab at amnesty for illegals, another run at cap-and-trade, a gun grab, a value added tax?”

If the Constitution was important the government wouldn’t own General Motors, Chrysler, the financial industry and now, insurance companies.

If the Constitution was important the government wouldn’t be in the business of setting the salaries of everyone from the lowest level employee to the CEOs of large companies.

To be fair, all of this can be laid at the feet of the socialist Republicans who blindly followed George W. Bush’s big government socialism over the economic cliff. They—the socialist Republicans—are claiming an epiphany now and appear to be standing up to the Democrat tyranny. But like all socialist elected elites, when they controlled Congress the socialist Republicans grew government, expanded its power to monitor its citizenry and supported Bush’s nation-building, empire-expanding war policies and his original $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).

Though they—the socialist Republicans—claim to be strict constructionists when it comes to the Constitution now, they helped Bush enact his ridiculous “compassionate conservatism” that increased government entitlement spending and therefore increased the roles of non-producers eager to sponge off the hard work of the producers.

But that’s what you get from the socialist elected elites. They ignore the Constitution because to them the “be all and end all” is government. They like big government and they like bigger government even better.

You can be sure that the Obama-Pelosi-Reid triumvirate isn’t going to rest on its laurels. More big government programs are on the way.

And Pelosi is not afraid to kick in a few doors to accomplish it. As she told a group of Leftwing bloggers leading up the passage of Obamacare, “…once we kick through this door there will be more legislation to follow.”

So this is only the beginning of the socialist takeover of America. It’s evidence that sovereignty is in the hands of but a few, just as the writer Brutus warned in Anti-Federalist No. 1: “If the people are to give their assent to the laws, by persons chosen and appointed by them, the manner of the choice and the number chosen, must be such, as to possess, be disposed, and consequently qualified to declare the sentiments of the people; for if they do not know, or are not disposed to speak the sentiments of the people, the people do not govern, but the sovereignty is in a few.”

At the close of the Constitutional Convention a woman asked Benjamin Franklin what type of government had been created. Franklin’s reply: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

We couldn’t.

Hey Dems, Listen Up!

I hear Democrat after Democrat after Democrat after Democrat after Democrat tell me how the American people are going to love the new healthcare law once they find out what's in it. They keep saying how we're gonna grow to love it when we see what it can do for us. Well, what will it do for the cause of Liberty? How does it reinforce the principles of Freedom on which this country was formed? Let me explain something to all you liberal Democrats, and you progressives from both parties; It's not about healthcare and what's in it for us - at least not for most Americans. It's about the socialist takover of America, and we are hopping mad about it. So keep your misinformation and your misdirection to yourselves, or go peddle it to some poor smuck who doesn't know any better. I have my money on the principled American people who know the difference between the "words of compassion" you spout and the "acts of a socialist government" you embrace. There's no way for any of you to run from that. It's factual and it's evident. So wake up and stop insulting us with your rhetoric, platitudes and propaganda. We're Not Interested!

Stay Engaged America! And God Bless Us All!

Don't Lose Sight Of The Other Hand

While a majority of Americans are focused on the debate over repealing and replacing the recently passed healthcare legislation, we must not lose sight of the other hand. Immigration "reform" designed to swell the democrat's voting base, card check designed to intimidate workers into joining and supporting corrupt union organizations, and Cap & Trade designed to further redistribute the wealth in America are just a few of the major items still in play on the Obama Agenda. Even today he just made FIFTEEN "recess appointments" including a union boss appointed to the NLRB who is also associated with ACORN. The Dems already tried to get him confirmed, but did not get the required 60 votes to pass him. Unbelievable!!!

Even if healthcare is repealed because it is unconstitutional, if any of these other issues slips by and become law, liberty will be the loser. So stay vigilant. Be prepared to fight many issues on many fronts. This group in Washington will be relentless in their pursuit to further socialize America. Don't let it happen. Continue to speak out. Continue to write and phone your Congressmen, continue to attend Tea Party rallies, and continue to become more and more informed.

Stay Engaged America! And God Bless Us All!
