Government by the ‘experts’ by George Will

“The legislative cannot transfer the power of making laws to any other hands. . . . The power of the legislative, being derived from the people . . . [is] only to make laws, and not to make legislators.”
— John Locke
“Second Treatise of Government”
Here, however, is a paradox of sovereignty: The sovereign people, possessing the right to be governed as they choose, might find the exercise of that right tiresome and so might choose to be governed in perpetuity by a despot they cannot subsequently remove. Congress did something like that in passing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. read more click here

The economy we have built for ourselves

"How did the richest and strongest country in history, triumphant in World War II and the Cold War, approach so soon the condition of the late Spanish and British empires as they began their precipitous declines?
Answer: We overextended ourselves. We bankrupted ourselves.Article by Buchanan - click here

The Prophetic C.S. Lewis

....by Joseph Sobran  June 13, 2000
"Deep political wisdom can be found in a writer who took very little interest in politics: C.S. Lewis, a scholar who achieved his greatest fame as a popular Christian writer.
.....Lewis was alarmed by another development we now take for granted: state control of education. He wrote: “I believe a man is happier, and happy in a richer way, if he has ‘the free-born mind.’ But I doubt whether he can have this without economic independence, which the new society is abolishing. For economic independence allows an education not controlled by Government; and in adult life it is the man who needs, and asks, nothing of government who can criticize its acts and snap his fingers at its ideology. Read Montaigne; that’s the voice of a man with his legs under his own table, eating the mutton and turnips raised on his own land. Who will talk like that when the State is everyone’s schoolmaster and employer?”
The “new society” was creating “membership in a debased modern sense – a massing together of persons as if they were pennies or counters.” It was “trying to drag the featureless repetition of the collective into the fuller and more concrete world of the family.”
More clearly than even Huxley and Orwell, Lewis saw that politics without morality could only end in tyranny. read more here

& reminders from the beginning

George Washington

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports . . . And let us indulge with caution the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion . . . Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail to the exclusion of religious principle."

John Adams

"[I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue."
"[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our constitution was made only for amoral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Thomas Jefferson

"I hold the precepts of Jesus as delivered by Himself, to be the most pure, benevolent and sublime which have ever been preached to man..." 

Why is it today that morals and ethics once held as standards of society are deemed backwards and unethical, lewd, uncouth behavior is accepted as norm?  I do not believe general society promotes this but for some reason the mass media highlights such and seems to drive us to believe this is who we are.  We are not and should maintain our guard not to become what they seem to want us to be

Instapoll - Do You Support a Balanced Budget?

For over 140 years of this country’s history—from 1789 to 1932—balanced budgets or surplus budgets were the norm.  However, since 1960 the United States has run annual federal budget deficits in all but six fiscal years.

Holding the President Accountable on Libya

Last week, more than 70 days after President Obama sent our military to attack Libya without a congressional declaration of war, the House of Representatives finally voted on two resolutions attempting to rein in the president. This debate was long overdue, as polls show Americans increasingly are frustrated by congressional inaction. According to a CNN poll last week, 55 percent of the American people believe that Congress, not the president, should have the final authority to decide whether the U.S. should continue its military mission in Libya. Yet for more than 70 days Congress has ignored its constitutional obligations and allowed the president to usurp its authority.read more - click here

Obama of Oz & the rest of the funny bunch

Hope & Change

If you hoped for a country on the verge of a (another)

 great depression and the change you were looking for

 was a downgrade of the U.S.'s sterling credit rating..

Then I guess you'd be ok with all of that talk 

of 'hope and change." 

Today the Labor Department released data showing that unemployment had inched up to 9.1% in May and Moody's Investment Services warned that the Fed is facing a downgraded credit rating. The White Houses's response? That all of this was just "bumps on the road to recovery."I'm not sure what road they're skipping down, but something tells me that it's yellow, made of brick, started in the blue country of Munchkins and ends in the Emerald City- where they are hoping that a wizard will be to give them their courage, brains and hearts back.read more - click here

June 6th, Remember D-Day

D-Day - A Second Front: In 1942, Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt issued a statement that the western allies would work as quickly as possible to open a second front to relieve pressure on the Soviets. Though united in this goal, issues soon arose with the British who favored a thrust north from the Mediterranean, through Italy and into southern Germany. Against this, the Americans advocated a cross-Channel assault which would move through Western Europe along the shortest route to Germany. As American strength grew, they made it clear that this was the only approach they would support.  Read more here

Unemployment Goes Up, Obama Declares Victory "despite the dismal news that 13.9 million Americans remain unemployed, President Barack Obama is holding a victory party today at a Chrysler plant in Toledo, Ohio, trumpeting the only jobs he can manage to create—those bought and paid for directly by the U.S. taxpayer." read more click here

Thomas Sowell - Listen to his every word

Seductive Beliefs

By Thomas Sowell
One of the painfully revealing episodes in Barack Obama's book "Dreams From My Father" describes his early experience listening to a sermon by the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Among the things said in that sermon was that "white folks' greed runs a world in need." Obama was literally moved to tears by that sermon.
This sermon may have been like a revelation to Barack Obama but its explanation of economic and other differences was among the oldest-- and most factually discredited-- explanations of such difference among all sorts of peoples in all sorts of places. Yet it is an explanation that has long been politically seductive, in countries around the world.

"R" & "D" -They Just Take Turns Ripping Us Off

Many people think that there is a big difference between Democrats and Republicans, but I think there’s not much difference at all.  I have long said, the left and the right are really one body with two heads–they just take turns ripping us off.  Both parties are not all bad.  There are a few good eggs on both sides of the isle but only a few. Gerald Celente, founder of Trends Research, thinks much the same way as I do.  Celente is famous for making many spot on predictions about the future based on trends of today.  He is predicting that Congressman Ron Paul could win the Presidency in 2012.  He adds, “To me the dream ticket would be: Judge Andrew Napolitano from Freedom Watch Ron Paul and Ralph Nader, and I say Ralph Nader because I am concerned about the food I eat the water I drink and the air that I breath . . .  I believe in Ron Paul Judge Napolitano and a guy like Ralph Nader just to keep the oligarchs away from the door…”
