Well, it’s over . . . now what?

November 14, 2008

stop-signThe presidential election of 2008 is now history and the Democratic party is once again in the White House. But they not only will control the White House but also the House of Representatives and the Senate. And the Senate, when you factor in liberal Independents and Republicans will pretty much be filibuster-proof. That is the liberal/socialist (yes, in spite of what the media tells you it is socialist) agenda will now be free to catapult into full control.

I have found it interesting that many have been declaring the death of conservatism with the defeat of John McCain. Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is, there was not conservative at the helm of the Republican party ticket this year. John McCain has proudly declared that he “reached across the aisle” to work with Democrats in the Senate. Translate that to mean that he compromised on key points in order to appease the left. It’s funny that no Democrat talks about reaching across the aisle . . . the Democrats only talk about how good it is when a Republican does this.
Interesting . . . Demand that Republicans STOP acting like and voting like Democrats.

Over the past few months there has been much talk as to how President-elect Obama will lead us down the road to Socialism. I must confess that is a concern of mine. But sadly, the Republican party, and yes, even President Bush, has hastened the journey down that road with socialist policies that have resulted in the “bailout” of private businesses, including banks. It is interesting that from the 10 Principles that Marx presented in his Communist Manifesto, #5 was “Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.” With the bailout, which is proving to be no help to the crisis in the economy, the U.S. government now owns a share of the major banks. And the banks have been using the bailout money to buy up smaller banks, thus hastening the centralization.

We are in precarious waters in our republic. We must hold our elected officials “feet to the fire” in the years to come. We cannot let them just squander the heritage and future of this nation for their own personal selfishness. Know your representative and senators. Have their phone numbers and email addresses close at hand. Write, call, become a nuisance if you have to, but demand that they follow the principles of the United States Constitution not any other document or idea that man dreams up as a “cure all” for our nation.

Better in Theory than Practice??

Obama in his own words

October 27, 2008

I thought the series from Investor’s Business Daily was pretty right on in it’s assessment of Obama’s policy and “change” dreams for America. Dreams that will make the U.S.A. far different from anything that the Founders intended. But now it seems that Obama actually thinks the Constitution is part of the problem. In fact he believes, from an interview in 2001 that, according to his own words, the Constitution of the U.S. —

“. . . is a document of negative liberties, says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted.”

In speaking of the Warren Court (the Supreme Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren), clearly the most liberal and radical terms of the Court he said this:

“The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of basic issues of political and economic justice in this society, and to that extent as radical as people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical,”

“It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it has been interpreted.”

Do we really want a court that “breaks free from the essential constraints placed on it . . . in the Constitution“? I fear that what Obama says in this interview is a foretaste of what we can expect if he is elected President, with a filibuster-proof Senate. Please listen to this carefully and pass it on to all who might be considering to vote for Obama. The Constitution of the United States will be his target if elected.

Audacity of Socialism — Rerun

October 25, 2008

UPDATE: This is a re-post from from September, but it has been pushed off the front page and in these last days before the election these are very, very important articles that should be widely read.

The Investor’s Business Daily has written a series of articles The Audacity of Socialism examining the past and present of Senator Obama.

It should be required reading for all who are “just not sure” about this years Presidential race in the U.S. Or those who need ammo for discussions with your friends or co-workers.
