And they wonder why people call it 'Dearbornistan'

This video is a long one, but well worth viewing. Apparently, the right of Muslims to riot and assault other people with whom they disagree is paramount, and trumps all other people's rights in Dearborn, Michigan:

So, according to the Dearborn police, if Muslims hate you and act violently toward you, YOU are the one in the wrong. And you'll be cited for a crime.

Citizens or not, these people will vote in November. And they will ALL vote for Barack Hussein Obama.

Holder - 'Let's brainwash people about guns'

Here's the contemptible Eric Holder, who has been found in contempt of Congress by the House Oversight Committee for refusing to release information about Operation Fast and Furious. The U.S. House will vote on a resolution to hold the attorney general in contempt on June 28.

In Fast and Furious, Obama and Holder sold guns to Mexican drug gangs, hoping that the end result would be public outcry for more gun control laws. U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered with weapons illegally sold to Mexican criminals by the Obama regime.

Holder is Attorney of the United States, serving at the pleasure of President Barack Obama. Maybe we should change his employment status.

Google honors D-Day veterans

Internet giant Google is kown for clever, relevant graphics prominently displayed on their search page. June 6, 2012 marks the 68th anniuversary of the invasion of Europe by Allied forces in Normandy, France - commonly referred to as "D-Day."

And here's how Google honors our World War II veterans on June 6:

Sad, clueless leftist declares 'end of America as we know it'

It would be amusing to watch ignorant leftists cry about Gov. Scott Walker's victory in the recent Wisconsin recall election, if it weren't so pathetic:

Allow us to point out a few key truths about "America as we know it," which this young man's unionized teachers apparently overlooked during his school years:
  • Our Founders, in writing the United States Constitution, actually created a representative republic. Our national government is not, and never has been, a democracy.
  • Thomas Jefferson famously expressed his disdain for democracy: "Democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49."
  • The 17th Amendment discarded the Founders' wisdom of having state legislatures elect US Senators, in favor of direct elections. This has proven to be an unwise step toward democracy.
  • The United States, as most Americans know it, is not a statist society where the government knows best and controls all. A better example of this would be the USSR - a fine example of how socialism and communism always fail. The United States, by contrast, is a place where liberty and freedom exist, including rights to free speech, association, and religion. Or at least they did, before Barack Hussein Obama became President.
  • The Federal government is actually prohibited by our founding documents from encroaching upon our God-given rights. The 10th Amendment clearly prohibits the Federal government from doing about 95% of what it is involved in today.
We could go on. But until uneducated, easily-misled citizens grasp the truth about the nature of this "grand experiment" called the United States of America, they will continue to cry in the streets, desperate for their imagined utopia.

Caveman blogger fights for free speech and Internet freedom

Far too many "activists," elected officials, judges, government offices, bureaus, programs, departments and bureaucrats think it's their job to police your freedom of speech. Especially your online speech:

Cooksey explains:
Can the government throw you in jail for offering advice on the Internet about what food people should buy at the grocery store?

That is exactly the claim made by the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition. In December 2011, diabetic blogger Steve Cooksey started a Dear Abby-style advice column on his popular blog (http://www.diabetes-warrior.net/) to answer reader questions. One month later, the State Board informed Steve that he could not give readers advice on diet, whether for free or for compensation, because doing so constituted the unlicensed, and thus criminal, practice of dietetics. The State Board also told Steve that his private emails and telephone calls with readers and friends were illegal, as was his paid life-coaching service. The State Board went through Steve's writings with a red pen, indicating what he may and may not say without a government-issued license.

But the First Amendment does not allow the government to ban people from sharing ordinary advice about diet, or scrub the Internet—from blogs to Facebook to Twitter—of speech the government does not like. North Carolina can no more force Steve to become a licensed dietitian than it could require Dear Abby to become a licensed psychologist.

That is why on May 30, 2012, Steve Cooksey joined the Institute for Justice in filing a major free speech lawsuit against the State Board in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, Charlotte Division. This lawsuit seeks to answer one of the most important unresolved questions in First Amendment law: When does the government's power to license occupations trump free speech?
More information about this case is offered at The Institute for Justice. Interesting commentary on this case and our First Amendment right to freedom of speech without government interference is also offered by law.com. The Blaze also posted their take on the story here.

Planned Parenthood's quiet 'War on Women'

Many on the US political left are prattling on about an imaginary "War on Women" these days. But did you know that Planned Parenthood is quietly carrying out "gendercide" - the elimination of female babies by sex-selected abortion.

Although this heinous practice is known to be widespread in repressive, communist regimes like China, Planned Parenthood affiliate clinics throughout the United States are also engaging in this very real war:

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air reports that the Planned Parenthood employee in this video has since been fired. Apparently the murder of female preborn babies continues unhindered.

Krugman - Lie to Americans so government can spend more

Paul Krugman epitomizes leftist "thought" in America today. And he's rewarded for his mindless "thinking" with a job as professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University, and by having a New York Times column that only brain-dead liberals actually read. Inexplicably, Krugman was the 2008 Nobel Prize for economic sciences.

Watch as nerdy, socially-awkward Krugman delivers his honestly dishonest remarks on Bill Maher's televised leftist hate forum:

Like most con men and liars, Krugman speaks very quickly. Just in case you don't catch all of his words, here is what he says:
This is hard to get people to do, much better, obviously, to build bridges and roads and healthcare clinics and schools. But my proposed, I actually have a serious proposal which is that we have to get a bunch of scientists to tell us that we're facing a threatened alien invasion, and in order to be prepared for that alien invasion we have to do things like build high-speed rail. And then, once we've recovered, we can say, 'Look, there were no aliens.'
But look, I mean, whatever it takes, because right now we need somebody to spend, and that somebody has to be the U.S. government.
So a Nobel laureate economist makes a "serious proposal" that some unnamed group of presumedly-real scientists intentionlly lie to the American people about something as absurd as an alien invasion? And this for the purpose of stealing more of their money to funnel through the Federal government, and then redistribute, ostensibly via another fraud-packed "stimulus"? This scheme is deserving of all the ridicule informed citizens can heap upon Krugman and anyone who supports his dishonest lunacy.

Oh, wait. Global-warmists are already using Krugman's suggested tactic: Lie about some impending disaster in order to get the Federal government to spend more of your money.

Also, super-brainy economist Krugman has apparently never seen this.

Note Krugman's predictable "ends justifies the means" approach. "Whatever it takes." This is how leftist tyrants think: "Whatever it takes" to fool or force you into doing their bidding. Why? Because they're a lot smarter than you, and they firmly believe that they have the right - even the moral obligation - to tell you what to do.

We disagree.

Noam Chomsky - Sarah Palin was right about Obama

Noam Chomsky has been a hero to anti-American leftists for decades. Norman G. Finkelstein, an obscure, anti-American leftist with a web site, praises Chomsky as "America's greatest intellectual."

But Chomsky made a surprising admission during a recent television interview with Democracy Now!* "I don’t usually admire Sarah Palin, but when she was making fun of this 'hopey changey' stuff, she was right, there was nothing there."

We don't generally recommend listening to Chomsky, because he's an über intellectual who detests America and all things normal. But play the clip below, just for the satisfaction of hearing him say Sarah Palin was right:

So there you have it, from the left's most profound thinker: President Barack Hussein Obama is a vacuous, callow youth, with absolutely nothing to say of any substance whatsoever. Well said, Professor Chomsky.

*Democracy Now! is a socialist organization that publishes interviews with the likes of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, terrorist friends of Barack Hussein Obama. They also produce shows on topics like Occupy Wall Street and Gay Rights (both up-twinkles), and Guantanamo (down-twimkles).

Vote fraud is alive and well

Conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe has just released the fifth in a series of video reports exposing vote fraud. His focus in this edition is North Carolina, where state lawmakers are prepared to ingnore the issue altogether:

It's obvious that American elections are in serious danger of corruption beyond remedy. But influential people like Michelle Malkin are taking notice of the impact O'Keefe and Project Veritas are having.

13 Democrat Senators embrace anti-Christian bigotry, bullying

Updated April 29, 2012

In June 2011, thirteen Democrat Senators embraced the "It Gets Better" Project, headed by radical homosexual agitator Dan Savage, also known as Keenan Hollahan. The list of elected co-conspirators reads like a leftist who's who of the U.S. Senate:
  1. Charles "Chuck" Schumer (NY) - @ChuckSchumer
  2. Mark Udall (CO) - @MarkUdall
  3. Ron Wyden (OR) - @RonWyden or @WydenPress
  4. Chris Coons (DE) - @ChrisCoons
  5. Richard Blumenthal (CT) - @SenBlumenthal
  6. Sherrod Brown (OH) - @SenSherrodBrown
  7. Maria Cantwell (WA) - @MariaCantwell
  8. Dick Durbin (IL) - @SenatorDurbin
  9. Al Franken (MN) - @AlFranken
  10. Dianne Feinstein (CA) - @SenFeinstein
  11. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) - @SenGillibrand
  12. Jeanne Shaheen (NH) - @SenatorShaheen
  13. Sheldon Whitehouse (RI) - @SenWhitehouse
Every member of this ultra-liberal gang is a co-sponsor of the so-called Respect for Marriage Act, introduced in March 2011 to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and allow the Federal government to recognize same-sex marriages.

(L to R) Democrat Senators Chuck Schumer, Mark Udall, Ron Wyden, and Chris Coons announcing their endorsement of the "It Gets Better Project," headed by anti-Christian bigotry and bullying by radical homosexual activist Dan Savage. Click photo to view larger.

So what's the big deal about thirteen Senators endorsing an anti-bullying project? Savage himself is a bully.

Unfortunately for these elected officials, Savage was caught recently making obscene and profane remarks to a journalism conference of high school students and teachers. In his comments, Savage repeatedly mocked the Bible and ridiculed Christianity and Christians. Watch the shocking video of Savage's offensive,profane,  inappropriate bullying here:

Yes, this is the same courageous, self-defending Dan Savage who left others holding the bag when the "Draw Muhammed" stunt got dangerous.

Don't be a bully like him, but you can contact The It Gets Better Project online or mention them on Twitter at @itgetsbetter - or Savage himself @fakedansavage - to let them know what you think of radical homosexual bullies like Dan Savage and his anti-Christian hate speech. You may also want to contact the Gang of 13 above to express your opinion.

And be sure to watch the video put together by these thirteen Senators - which YOU paid for:

ObamaCare advocates have no idea what the Constitution says

Freshman Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy represents the 4th District of South Carolina. Congress held hearings on April 26 regarding the US Department of Health and Human Services rules within ObamaCare that would force Americans to abandon their religious beliefs and permit unnecessary Federal government intrusion into their lives.

This video is enjoyable on two levels: First, it serves as an excellent example of how a conservative will always defeat a squirming, exposed liberal every time actual issues and facts are discussed. Second, it reveals that President Barack Hussein Obama's cabinet members - typified by Kathleen Sibelius - know little or nothing about the U.S. Constitution, beyond the disdain that their boss has for our founding documents. Secretary Sibelius actually believes "separation of church and state" is part of the Constitution. (It is not.)

Obama's Fenway Park debut a failure

Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, is celebrating it's 100th year in 2012. So naturally, our campaigner-in-chief had to give a speech. Unfortunately for Barack Hussein Obama, people who pay for admission to Fenway expect to see the Green Monster and a good ballgame, not a Marxist lecture. So they expressed their disapproval. Loudly:

Americans do NOT eat dogs.

But President Barack Hussein Obama did:

'Spreading grades around is good for everyone...'

President Barack Obama, a solid advocate for redistribution of wealth, would be so proud!

Students at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wis. decided to celebrate Tax Day on April 17. And they had a great idea: Circulate a petition demanding that students with good grades be forced to redistribute some of their academic achievement to students with lower grade point averages. It's all about fairness and equity, right?

The fact that many seem to willingly sign the petition proves that these students have a lousy GPA, or that Marxist redistribution theory is alive and well on this campus:

Ted Nugent understands the Constitution better than President Obama

Ted Nugent, once known as the Motor City Madman during his 1970s music heyday, delivered some scathing remarks at a recent gathering of National Rifle Association (NRA) members in St. Louis, Missouri. Nugent is an outspoken advocate for hunting and the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, which guarantees American citizens the right to "keep and bear arms."

Nugent appeared on the Dana Loesch Radio Show on April 17 to expand upon and clarify his anti-Obama remarks. His 13 minutes on the air prove he knows how to simultaneously exercise his First and Second Amendment rights:

Free Obama money! Oh, wait...

Plenty of gullible citizens are content to live the rest of their lives as leeches, relying on productive people like you to give them free stuff. Unfortunately for them, there are also plenty of scammers ready to take advantage of their ignorance and greed:

Who's wasting our money?

Updated 17 April 2012 3:00pm Eastern

Ever wonder who is wasting millions of your Federal tax dollars?

Barack Hussein Obama's style of spend first, ask questions later government is typified by a previously unknown bureaucrat named Jeff Neely. Neely, a Government Services Administration regional commissioner was apparently in charge of a Las Vegas conference on child care that wasted nearly a million dollars of our money.

Why the GSA even hosts conferences on child care is unknown at this point. The fact that Neely hosted the 21st annual such gathering is even more disturbing.

GSA was given $5.5 billion by Obama's "stimulus" boondoggle, allegedly to convert federal buildings into high-performance green buildings, and build new, energy-efficient federal buildings, courthouses and land ports of entry. Investigators are reviewing GSA records to see how much of that bloated budget has been squandered by Neely and his free-spending GSA co-conspirators.

Neely was subpoenaed to appear before the House Oversight Committee, and just like an organized crime weasel, refused to even confirm his job title.

Here's an excerpt from a post by Penny Star at CNSNews.com:
[Jeffrey] Neely was subpoenaed as part of a House investigation into a 2010 conference... that sent 300 people to Las Vegas and racked up a tab of more than $850,000, including a $75,000 bike-building event and $130,000 to send 15 scouts to pick the event venue.
Neely, who makes $179,000 annually as the regional GSA regional commissioner in charge of Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, several other countries and territories, evoked his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent when questioned by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the committee. Neely is now on administrative leave and is still receiving his salary.

The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee held hearings on April 17 to explore GSA waste, fraud and abuse.

Roll Call has more on Neely's outrageous history of unauthorized spending here.

Stories like this confirm among American citizens the belief that our Federal government has too much of our money. And what is Obama's answer? He continues to argue, cluelessly, that the Federal government needs more "revenue."

'I disapprove of what you say...'

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

 Many people mistakenly attribute the above quote to French writer, deist and philosopher Voltaire.* And in recent days, too many conservatives have mistakenly abandoned this principle as they scurry to distance themselves from John Derbyshire's piece, "The Talk: The NonBlack Version."

It's a familiar phrase in conservative circles, isn't it? "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

Conservatives rightly decry the social tyranny known as "political correctness," correctly pointing out that liberals violate both spirit and letter of the law in their brash attempts to squelch conservative speech. But what happens when conservatives employ this tactic to discourage speech with which they disagree?

Our founders held that a citizen's freedom of speech - especially political speech - was so important that they amended the United States Constitution in 1791. The first amendment they ratified reads: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

So the Constitution makes it clear that our Federal government has no authority to exercise control over the speech of a private citizen, no matter how disgusting or offensive. But what happens if fellow conservatives independently begin to "outlaw" certain speech, deeming it unacceptable?
Constitutional conservatives have long maintained that our First Amendment guarantees that vile, hateful, disagreeable, unpleasant, foolish and even outright stupid speech is protected by law. In other words, people are free to say almost anything that doesn't actually endanger other people. It may not be wise to say it. It may make the listener or reader or viewer uncomfortable to hear it. But US citizens have an absolute right to speak, write and broadcast their opinions.
That is, until we get to the tenuous topic of race relations in America. Racism remains a subject where conservatives - especially nonBlack conservatives - dare not tread. 
Make no mistake: We don't defend Derbyshire or his ideas. He's a lucid writer, and can do that himself, if he so chooses. Liberals, statists, and actual racists who oppose conservatism for a wide variety of reasons will castigate, ridicule, marginalize, and even threaten Derbyshire. They are the hypocrites who claim to defend free speech rights, but demand the head of anyone who makes what they deem to be an unsavory comment.
But a good number of self-proclaimed conservatives fell all over themselves condemning Derbyshire's writing. "I disapprove of what you say..." was all we heard from them. And we're still hearing that. There was absolutely no defense of a person's right to express thoughts or opinions, even if we don't like them. Perhaps this was an unthinking reaction by critics anxious to avoid being branded a "racist" themselves. Where is the arguably more-important "...but I will defend to the death your right to say it."?
Whatever their motivation, this parade of harsh and instant conservative condemnation accomplished two things. First, it dramatically lessened the likelihood that Americans will ever have a serious, constructive conversation about race relations. We desperately need thoughtful conservatives to discuss the racial divide in America. And it isn't going to be pretty. It's a touchy subject for everyone involved.
Second, it strengthens the hand of racists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. With the assistance of a willing media, they have driven the narrative for decades. Now that conservatives have destroyed one of their own so swiftly in absolute obedience to the left's dogma, these two have an even tighter lock on the issue.
Who will change this paradigm? Jackson and Sharpton? We now know that racial division is central to Barack Hussein Obama's re-election plan, so it won't be the President or his minions, either. 
If you're a conservative, no matter how offended you are by what Derbyshire has posted, you owe it to your country and to fellow conservatives to defend his right to speak and write.
And here's something Voltaire really did say: "To hold a pen is to be at war." Too many of our friends just retreated, taking their wit and writing instruments to the rear, riding unknowingly under the liberal banner "Raaaaaaaaaaacist."

Reject cowardice! Burn that banner in open defiance of the left, and get back in the fight.

There's a war on, you know:

*This quote is often mis-attributed to Voltaire, but actually appears in Friends of Voltaire, by Evelyn Beatrice Hall, an English writer, who used the pen name Stephen G. Tallentyre.

Barack Hussein Obama's open mic moment

Here's the actual video clip of a recent exchange between Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, and Dimitry Medvedev, President of Russia. Medvedev will soon be succeeded by KGB spy Vladimir Putin. many have speculated that Putin's return to the Russian presidency signals a growing likelihood of dictatorship.

Both men clearly thought the microphones were turned off. Some believe this incident may have exposed Obama's promises to give in to Russian demands about missile defense in Europe.

Judge for yourself: Does President Obama's comment to Medvedev sound just a little sinister to you? What on earth is Obama promising to Russia?

The bureaucratic nightmare we call ObamaCare

The officially- (and misleadingly-) titled "Affordable Care Act" was not written by ordinary citizens or healthcare professionals. It was crafted in the dark of night by single-payer advocates, lobbyists, temporary politicians and professional leftists.

The real meaning of 'MPH'

This brief clip is a wonderful example of how America's public schools are failing to produce graduates with math skills:

So what do we learn here? The following may or may not be factors in calculating speed and distance of an automobile traveling on the highway:
  • the speed at which you can run a mile
  • the relative physical conditioning of your body before running said mile
  • the rate at which the car's tires spin while driving on the highway
  • dividing by 2 or multiplying by 1/2 may be important at certain points in the calculations
  • trucks may be slower than cars, due to greater weight of the vehicle
  • automatic transmission vehicles may travel at different rates of speed than standard transmission vehicles
  • improper inflation of a vehicle's tires may decrease speed
  • police vehicles are probably faster than any other car
Good thing she's cute. Thank you, government schools!

Obama's Political Circle

The media steadfastly refuse to tell us who Barack Hussein Obama is. But a man is known by the company he keeps. Your instincts tell you that, based on his policies and behavior, Obama is an enemy of the United States of America and our Constitution.

Here is the confirmation that your instincts are correct. This infographic (click the image to enlarge) explains everything you need to know about President Obama:

A Patriotic American Citizen's Apology to Afghanistan

Apologizer In Chief Barack Hussein Obama recently issued a written apology to Afghanistan president Hamid Karzai.

Why? Well, Obama does have a proclivity for apologizing for just about anything the United States of America accomplishes or does. But he apologized to Karzai because a handful of Korans were disposed of by US troops. Not because the soldiers detest the murderous death cult known as Islam, mind you, but because terrorist prisoners were passing notes to each other, scrawled in the margins of the books.

Karzai demanded that the responsible parties be tried, and Obama promised to punish the troops responsible for such reprehensible behavior. Naturally, the contents of Obama's groveling remains secret, because ordinary citizens cannot possibly understand his brilliant diplomatic dispatches.

Predictably, Muslims rioted in response, and Afghan troops - supposedly our mission partners - shot and killed two American soldiers in the melee. Many Afghans also died in the senseless Muslim violence.

Enjoy this sincere apology to Karzai from a patriotic, concerned American citizen:

Would that we had 300 million more just like her.

Walter E. Williams on the Economics of Liberty

Walter E. Williams makes more sense than most people when it comes to commentary on economics. Williams, John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, offers insights here such as:
  • "Income redistribution is simply a legal form of what a thief does. That is, when a thief robs you, he redistributes income - from you, to him."
  • Quoting James Madison, widely acknowledged as the Father of the US Constitution: "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article in the Constitution that authorizes Congress to spend the money of their constituents for the purposes of benevolence."

This clip includes excerpts from Williams' speech "The Entrepreneur As American Hero," presented in 2008. But because Williams speaks about timeless principles of economics and human behavior, his remarks are as applicable today as they were when he first presented them.

VFW members duct-tape flag burner to flag pole

Many Americans are deeply offended when someone sets fire to an American flag. So much so that a Constitutional Amendment prohibiting flag desecration has been proposed. Perhaps none are more upset by this than military veterans, who have seen their fellow service members die in combat fighting for our freedom and know better than any of us what the Stars and Stripes symbolizes.

Local VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) representatives took matters into their own hands recently to punish a man who, after being refused alcohol (because he had no identification), decided to burn the VFW Post's American flag:

This was no ordinary flag, either. It had flown over a foxhole in Iraq, where several U.S. soldiers made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. What do you think? Does the punishment fit the crime?

This man has a bright future in American politics:

Police raid, guns drawn, in search of raw milk

This is what it's come to in America under the Obama Regime:

President Obama's Food and Drug Administration warns about the potential adverse effects of so-called "raw milk." Is it legal to sell raw milk? In many cases, according to the FDA, yes. But if you dare sell this terribly dangerous commodity, law enforcement officers may enter your private property, weapons drawn, to enforce these seemingly-obscure Federal regulations.

Obama's heavy-handed, police state tactics are a clear violation of the store owner's private property rights and the Constitutional rights of every employee and patron to be free from unreasonable search and seizure. Most reasonable people would agree that it isn't necessary - or wise - for police to enter a law-abiding, peaceful, place of legal business acting like stormtroopers.

But Obama, who has touted himself as a Constitutional scholar, has never demonstrated much understanding of the document. His respect for the principles it espouses is negligible. And his policies undermine both the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence at every turn.

Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich understands that Barack Hussein Obama must be defeated in 2012. Granted, this is a montage of video. But Newt articulates exactly why informed citizens detest the Obama Regime. Watch as Newt coherently demonstrates comprehension of every issue you can think of - all without a teleprompter:

Is Obama re-writing the Constitution?

Please, no comments here about how the Bill of Rights is still intact. We acknowledge that it is, on paper.

But in daily life?
Wow, lots of references to arrests there. Could it be that ordinary US citizens are increasingly being treated like criminals when they exercise their Constitutional rights?
A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference. ~Thomas Jefferson
Jefferson is making a subtle, but tremendously important point. Our rights outlined in the first ten amendments to the US Constitution are not there to protect citizens from bad people. According to Jefferson, they exist to protect us from the Federal government - the very entity now eroding these rights.

Were he with us today, Jefferson might observe that tyranny is raising its ugly head by quietly reducing and eventually eliminating our Constitutional rights that were meant to protect us from an all-powerful, intrusive Federal government. And only we, the informed citizens, can stop tyranny.

Patrick Henry made it even clearer:
The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests. ~Patrick Henry

Will a $16.4 trillion national debt anger you?

Many informed Americans are outraged that President Obama and Congress have already conspired to add another $1.2 trillion to our national debt, which stood at $15.2 trillion at the beginning of 2012. If this doesn't inspire you to political involvement, perhaps you either don't understand the numbers, or don't understand the long-term consequences of such unsustainable debt.

This video is a great explanation for those of us who are either math-challenged or just not quite up to speed on what our Federal government is doing to us:

Santorum explains why we can't control Federal spending

Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA), a candidate for the Republican nomination for President, appeared at an event in Washington, Iowa, in November 2011. Santorum explains here in plain English why it's almost impossible to stem the growth of our Federal government or even control spending:

This clip is a continuation of a Q&A session with the audience, and Santorum discusses:
  • rules of government that allow - and even encourage - growth and spending by Washington
  • effect of changing the method by which United Senators are elected (17th amendment to the US Constitution)
  • times when the Federal government has grown dramatically
  • need for bipartisanship and compromise if the President is going to achieve things
  • his strong belief in a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution
