What's Wrong with Our Government?

Or Should I Say What Is Right about it!
The founders of our Great Republic had a lot different ideas about our country than the leaders of this country do today. The framers of our constitution had the idea and the fore site to include all the citizens of this nation in the law making and the decision making of how this country was run. They did that by having the people elect a person to be their voice and that person would carry their voices, as one, to Washington to be heard by all. That Representative would cast his vote by what his constituency wanted, not what was best for him and his re-election. This way of doing business in Washington is what has made this nation strong for over 200 hundred years. A leader in the free world and a voice for freedom!

We have elected Representatives in Washington, who are career politicians, that were elected to do the will of the people and to be their voice, but, in most cases, they are not that voice the people wanted. Most of them are egotistical and pompous. By that I mean they will do what ever it takes to be re-elected. What ever will make them to have a fat wallet. It could be listening to big business, or letting the free loaders of this country have their way. I believe the free loaders and the illegal aliens are the biggest problem in this country today and the career politicians are more than helping them along while forgetting the taxpayer who elected them.

This problem started in 1964 when Lynden Baines Johnson, who was the president at the time, and the democrats started "The Great Society" against the wishes and voices of most Americans. The Great Society was and still is nothing more than a free hand out to drug addicts, free loaders, and people who will not work. This is not always the case but most of the time it is. The program helped people to get on such things as food stamps, welfare, free housing, free medical, and many other things which the tax payer had to carry the burden of paying for. The problem with the Great Society is the law makers made a way for people to get on the program, but provided no way or program for them to get off it. There was and still is a reason for that. It was done for the votes and now these very same people are enslaved to the very people (government leaders) that gave them the free ride. To keep these benefits and more going they have to keep voting for them. In my book that is a form of slavery.  You can call those leaders Uncle Sam, Uncle Tom, or what ever you want, but they have transformed, them selves from servants of the people to their masters and most of the lower class (I'm speaking of money only) does not even know it. They now have to depend on them for just about everything. It is all about the votes to keep these so called law makers in office. It makes very little difference to them what the tax payer of this country, who works everyday, has to say or want!

We have a illegal alien problem in this country that is way out of control. The leaders in our government will not fix it because once again they see new voters to help them to be re-elected and put back into office. So it is free food for them, free medical care, free education, free housing, and free everything, plus all the money that is put out by the government for the illegals that commit crimes against honest people.  That comes on the back of the American tax payer. All this to get these people back into office. Now is that a crime or what? America is, now, a nation with no walls to keep the American people safe. Seventy five per cent of all money that is made by illegals is sent back to their country. How is that helping the American people. Your government is responsible for this. Once again the blame for all this has to be put on the back of our government, the ones who will not listen to the majority of the people. Our nation is crumbling because of leaders who are looking out for themselves instead of the American people. It is called career politicians! We need to tell them to start pressing (1) and make the American people #1 or else the American people will press two and send them to inferno region!

We have problems with terrorist and our leaders want to hold talks with them. How do you talk with people that want to kill you? We have Muslims that want Shari law in this country and little by little that is happening right before our eyes. I have nothing against Muslims, but when they try to impose their way of life on me I do. We have our own laws in this country and if they want to live here then they abide by our laws. The trouble is we have weak kneed politicians that will say nothing and the problem gets worse. If we do not elect some leaders with a back bone soon we will be under Shari law and if you are of any other religion you are doomed!

The biggest problem that we are facing in our country today, as if what I already said was not enough, is the president. It is plain to see that he hates this country and wants to dismantle it piece by piece and he is doing just that. He does not like Capitalism and he wants a socialist (communist) country. He is taking us there real fast. Another four years and we are goners. Most everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie. He alienates our allies, and bows to our enemies. He has said that he can do a better job of running this country by his self. Now that sounds just like a dictator and that is really scary! To tell the truth, he wants this country to fail. His own people (in his cabinet and his czars) has said that this old system of government has to fail before a new one can come about. Is that scary? You bet it is!  He now has the private police force, that is only answerable to him, the one he wanted when he was running for office. This was done as an attachment to the health care bill so the American people would not know it if they were not looking for it.

It is time for all Americans to wake up to all the problems facing our beloved nation and do something about it. Get rid of the career politicians. Get rid of Obama, who has been lying. Vote these people out and vote people into office that will restore what the canker worm has eaten. God bless the USA!

TREASON FROM WITHIN: How Do You Like The Change Now?

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared." - Cicero, 42 B.C.
After reading the below information, that I have compiled from many different  web sites, please tell me does any of this sound like the America we use to know! Tell me are we headed in the right direction. Tell me is this the change that so many people voted for. For those of you who voted for Obama is this what you wanted?

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 published.

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? 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 Hussein Obama has not only said that he is out to "change the United States of America," the people he has aliened with and 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. They go against everything that our fore fathers stood for! Jeremiah Wright said it with words: "God damn America!" Bill Ayers said it with his bombs that he planted. Community activist goons and bullies 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 held in high regard and  praised enemy dictators like Mao, Castro, and many others, 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. They are missing something here that is very clear. Why should we assume that Barack Obama didn't know what such people were like. If we did that would be a laugh, when he has been associating with precisely these kinds of people for decades before he reached the White House? Do you get the point? 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. Nothing so epitomizes President Obama's own contempt for American values and traditions. He even apologizes to Muslim countries and says that America has been a bully, when there has been no other country on the face of the earth that has helped other countries in need with money and the blood of our young soldiers. Whether enough people will wake up in time to keep America from being dismantled, piece by piece, is another question. We cannot let this man have another four years in office!
Why would Obama not allow drilling for oil in the gulf of Mexico and Alaska, but lend money to Brazil to drill for oil off the Gulf of Mexico and then release millions of barrels of oil in this nations petroleum reserve? He said it was to bring down the cost of gas but was it? Prices are going right back up again! He did it to weaken our country. Another part of his dismantling. If we do not wake up we will not have a country?

Social Security

Social Security is a social insurance program that is funded through dedicated deductions (To be used for a certain purpose) in the payroll checks of working Americans. It is not taxes or government money! 
Obama has heard the retired people loud and clear on Social Security, so if he does not pay it, it will be because he chooses that route, not because he can’t pay it. The fact that he is even using it as leverage is downright evil. He knows what he is doing! That should be the last money Obama touches because it has always been our money in an “untouchable lock box” for retirement, even though, we know, the government  has been spending it for years. Social Security was designed to be a government run savings account for us, and they have turned it into a free checking account for themselves. And let’s face it, the longer and larger we dig this debt hole, the less chance the people (who have been trusting the government and paying into social security their whole lives) have of receiving their money. Most people have already have written off receiving any chances of seeing any of the money That  they have paid in. Either the government will have defaulted by the time  they are supposed to get it, or they will have raised the age to the point that the people will be dead before it kicks in. Obama  has dictator potential written all over him. That is a scary thing, but let’s hope there are enough people still out here who appreciate and understand freedom to prevent him from accomplishing that.

You have probably heard the math and talk on the TV and the radio, that there is plenty of money every month to keep paying social security, veterans, even our debt payments at this point,  if they would cut in other things… but they ( Obama and the Democrats) won't because that is the places  where their votes are.  The free hand outs.  Obama's plan (any body can see it) is to scare people and then hang the results around conservative necks. The scary thing is that it might work, since Obama and his democrat party  control almost all of the corridors of power and influence… media, schools, Hollywood, Federal reserve, banks, etc. They are a minority but they have been very smart over the last 40 years in positioning themselves in the places of influence so that now they can mislead the American people at will, because they can make their message consistent from so many different angles in our society because of all free hand outs to people who have never paid a dime into anything. It’s a scary and a defining time in the life of our nation. With Obama as the man in charge it is even more scary!

As tired as most of us are of all of this, and as much as we just want to make a reasonable living, enjoy spending time with our families, focus on raising our kids,  enjoying our grand kids, and, if you are like me,  sharing the gospel when I have opportunity, we cannot afford to sit down and shut up. Most of us feel the same way, so let us have a determination to get the word out.

Entitlement: Wake up America

Entitlement! You had better come again! Just like every other American I paid cash, out of every pay check, for my social security insurance! It came out of my check by a law enacted by congress and the president. For forty two years the government took not only  taxes out of my check, but also took out money for my retirement. Now I'm retired, depend on that money as a source of income along with a rental property and this president or should I say The Deceiver is using this (our money)  that you and I paid in as a tool to get what he wants. As long as this man is in office it will be his way or the highway.  

Just because the government borrowed the money from the working people of this country, doesn't make my benefits, or yours,  some kind of charity or handout! It is what we worked and paid out for, the most of our lifes. 

Now if you want to talk about entitlements take a look at Congressional benefits , aka (Also known as) free healthcare , outrageous retirement packages , 67 paid holidays , three weeks paid vacation , unlimited paid sick days, now that's welfare , and they have the nerve to call our
retirement entitlements ! What is wrong with this picture? What kind of leaders do we have in this country?

The country is spending more money than it is taking in and this president and some of congress want to spend more money than we take in. does this make sense?

Wake Up America and Smell The Coffee!

This Is How To Fix Our Congress

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971...before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.  Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure. I'm asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.
In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

 Congressional Reform Act of 2011

  •  No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
  •  Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
  •  Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
  •  Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
  • Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
  • Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people. 
  • All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12.

 The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
 If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message. Maybe it is time.

FYI: A Short Lesson in Civics

 Ludwig Von Mises, one of the greatest economists of all time (1881 -1973) wrote, "There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved." This is the choice that the nation faces today. Which decision will prevail? (To visualize the problem we face, check this out, do not take my word for it:  

As the nation bumps up against the debt ceiling, the news media {as always} continues to babble about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush, and Obama continues to blame Bush for the problem. So once more, a short civics lesson. This is so important and not reported by the news media that, as a concerned American citizen,  I urge you to pass it along to everyone in your address book and to all your face Book friends.

First off, Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress from January 2007 until January of 2011 is the Democratic Party.
Furthermore, the Democrats
controlled the budget process for physical years  FY 2008 and FY 2009 as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011.  In that first year, they had to contend and fight with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases. He should have done it sooner than he did.

For the physical year FY 2009, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely
, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill, that had several packages attached to it, to complete the FY 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009. Let's remember what the deficits looked like during that period: 

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

Let me put all this In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is, I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I expanded that deficit four-fold (four times as much) as President.

There is no way this will be widely publicized by the press, unless each of us, that are concerned American Citizens sends it on! This is your chance, as a citizen, to make a difference. I took my time to put all this together so please pass this on to everybody you know.

The Obituary of A Nation

BORN 1776 - DIED 2012
In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinborough, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."
The Obituary follows:

Born 1776, Died 2012

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2
McCain: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was
mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income
tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
"complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy,
with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached
the "governmental dependency" phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal
invaders called illegal's - and they vote - then we can say goodbye to the
USA in fewer than five years.

This is truly scary! Of course because we are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic . Someone should point this out to Obama. Of course we know he and too many others pay little attention to The Constitution or what the citizens say or want!
There couldn't be more at stake than on Nov 2012.

The Oil Reserves: Is Obama a Idiot Or is it a Conspiracy?

With oil priced at just two-thirds of its highs set three years ago, President Barack Obama launched another on of his spend-now-pay-later programs. But this time, Obama  has done it with something much harder to replace than  than the green back, tax payer's, dollars. He is tapping into and spilling out the nation’s emergency crude oil reserves. Why is he doing this?
Just one year after Obama began stopping or  limiting domestic oil exploration, he has begun siphoning and draining off America’s last energy holdings — the U.S. Strategic Oil Reserve. Thirty million barrels of oil have already been taken away by Obama, yet oil prices are now higher and supplies are tighter than they were before these precious emergency reserves were drained away. Is he doing this on purpose to bring about a downfall of the United States Economy? He is dismantling this country more all the time. He knows exactly what he is doing!  The problem is most Americans do not know what he is doing.
Obama’s actions are so blatant, and done without even trying to hid it, that I refuse to give him the benefit of the doubt. Not only is the price of crude far lower than it was in the summer of 2008, but there is no physical shortage, there is no long lines at the gas pumps. It is just the opposite; oil inventories in June were close to historic highs. There can be no doubt, however, that they will decline. The President has choked off domestic offshore oil exploration and has refused to open up potential petroleum-rich regions like Alaska for onshore exploration and now is using this countries oil reserves. Why?
Does the President really believe we are in a crisis now? Or does he want to make things worse by throwing away our last line of defense, the US Strategic oil Reserves. This is just another screw that he is turning to dismantle our country. 

A Home Without A Father

Hear are some facts that the average person may not know. The children from homes without a father account for The following:

63 precent of youth suicides
71 percent of pregnant teenagers
90 percent of all homeless and runaway children
70 percent of juveniles in state-operated institutions
85 percent of all youth sitting in prison
85 percent of all youth who exhibit behavior disorders
80 percent of rapists motivated with displaced anger
71 percent of high school dropouts
75 percent of all adolescents in chemical abuse centers

It is the family unit that make things work in this country. A house with out the father is not a family unit. It takes strong leadership in a household to keep it going and to make things right. In homes where it is just the mother or one 
parent that leadership is weakened.

We must as Christians and Americans  put back that strong leadership that should be in every home. Strong leadership and strong morals in the home means strong leadership in our country.

The Five best sentences you will ever read

Unfortunately, most voters don't know this.
These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read:

[1] You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by
legislating the wealth out of prosperity.

[2] What one person receives without working for,
another person must work for without receiving.

[3] The government cannot give to anybody anything that
the government does not first take from somebody else.

[4] You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

[5] When half of the people get the idea that they do not
have to work because the other half is going to take care of them,
and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work,
because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is
the beginning of the end of any nation.

Disarmed by Shariah

Political correctness prevents Army from recognizing sedition
By Adm. James A. Lyons

Today, the mind-numbing disease of political correctness has so infected the American military leadership that it is a threat in itself. The political correctness mentality was the principal reason why Fort Hood's alleged murderer, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was not cashiered out of the Army after a shocking June 2007 PowerPoint presentation he gave as part of his psychiatric residency program. In that presentation, he reportedly warned his Army colleagues and supervisor at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center of "adverse events" that would occur if the Army did not accept the precepts of Islamic Shariah law and grant Muslims serving in the Army conscientious objector status.

He went on to describe what he meant by adverse events, citing previous cases of Muslims murdering their fellow soldiers, spying against the United States, deserting their units and refusing to deploy. None of his fellow doctors or his supervisor reported his remarks, most likely out of fear of being labeled a bigot or racist, which in today's military could end one's career.

Now it seems the Army has embraced Maj. Hasan's position in an incredible decision made last month by the secretary of the Army to grant conscientious objector status to Pfc. Naser Abdo. He is a 21-year-old soldier, a member of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky., who refused to deploy to Afghanistan, claiming that Shariah law prevented him from killing other Muslims.

The fact that Shariah law is totally incompatible with the U.S. Constitution and has no legal basis in the United States was somehow overlooked in the Army's decision process. Shariah is a totalitarian legal-military-political system that is designed to control every aspect of an individual's life and is antithetical to our concept of freedom and democracy. By its dictates, Shariah is seditious.

By acceding to the dictates of Shariah, the Army has tacitly endorsed an absurd position that in effect sanctions Muslim service members to kill non-Muslims but forbids them to kill Muslims. Further, it is an unbelievable basis on which to classify them as conscientious objectors.

When Pfc. Abdo enlisted, he stated he initially believed that he could be a soldier and a Muslim at the same time. What changed his vision? He stated that his understanding of Islam "changed" as he went through training ahead of a planned deployment to Afghanistan. He worried whether going to war was the right thing to do.

This would indicate that someone in the Army training process for an overseas deployment in the 2009-10 time frame was indoctrinating Pfc. Abdo and other Muslim soldiers. Could it have been one of the Muslim chaplains personally selected by Abdurahman Alamoudi, who currently is serving a 23-year sentence in a federal prison? He was convicted of terrorism-related charges and was proved to be a senior al Qaeda financier as well as a strong supporter of the terrorists groups Hezbollah and Hamas.

As a result of his close connections in the Clinton White House, Alamoudi had the lead role in establishing the Muslim chaplain program. He nominated and approved which Muslim chaplains could serve in the U.S. military. The chaplains have never been vetted. This, together with a review of how Muslim military personnel currently are being indoctrinated, needs to be examined on an expedited basis.

Who helped the Army come to this inconceivable position on classifying Pfc. Abdo as a conscientious objector? My guess would be the Army received "guidance" from its Muslim "outreach partners," who it believes are operating in America's best interest. This would be classic stealth jihad at its finest.

By granting conscientious objector status to Pfc. Abdo, the Army is tacitly accepting a key tenet of the Islamic doctrine of jihad, as embraced by al Qaeda and other terrorists groups, which states that any incursion by non-Muslims into the Islamic lands makes it the duty for all Muslims to fight the "occupiers." This view is shared by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who has challenged American efforts in Afghanistan as "unwelcome outsiders," in effect, occupiers.

The U.S. military is the finest in the world. It represents the best of America. We have many Muslims serving honorably in the U.S. military and their service should not be tainted by Pfc. Abdo's conscientious objector designation. His discharge from the Army is currently on hold because he has been charged with possession of child pornography. That should not be surprising: Shariah sanctions marriage of girls 9 years old and younger, in effect, legalized pedophilia.

Retired Navy Adm. James A. Lyons was commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and senior U.S. military representative to the United Nations.

From a California school teacher….. As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things ...
