“The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.”
– James Madison, speech in the House of Representatives, January 10, 1794
Opinion by AAABTonto:
Obama’s ideology and his disregard of the law has put liberty into a tailspin. American exceptionalism is evaporating like a bottle of rubbing alcohol left open. I think it is obvious that Obama’s original desire–even before his election, was to destroy the American persona and remake it in is own, selfish, socialist design. He is on the wrong side of every issue. Now, you are entitled to your opinion, but Obama is either diabolical or he incredibly incompetent. Which is it? The man is eviscerating our stable of experienced military minds for generals who have an idealistic fondness of Obama’s agenda. Chuck Hagel is proposing the most pathetic defense budget plan put forth in seven decades. He is flagrantly imposing derision upon military families whose faith is Christian and unconstitutionally inhibiting their right express themselves religiously.
The Obama “sequester” (and he owns it—that was his baby) has devastated military funding; but the Navy is ‘required’ to run on bio-fuels, which I am told, are now 5 times the cost of diesel. The congress just cut pensions for disabled veterans. There is no love for our military in this administration as they propose to cut their funding further.
We should be strengthening our resolve. We should be tightening our belts and streamlining our budgets. Gathering extra supplies, strengthening our defenses, building redundancies into our infra structure and our emergency response systems. We have oodles of redundancies in our govt. social programs, but we can’t cut any of that. No, we have to take money from brave warriors, who are now wheelchair bound.
We have an administration, whose idealism has them so blind to reality, that there appears to be no way to lead them back some more pragmatic view of our circumstance. Look at the administration’s response to the bombings in Volgograd before the Olympics that killed at least 31 people:
“In terms of security for Sochi, U.S. citizens planning to attend should remain alert regarding their personal security at all times. I think our security experts have said that criminal activity in Sochi is similar to other cities of comparable size. Obviously, major events such as the Olympic games are an opportunity for thieves or for other folks who want to cause mischief,” said State Department, spokeswoman Marie Harf.
I don’t think blowing people to pieces falls under the category of mischief, but then the administration says that Benghazi is a false controversy. Does this sound like every other response the White House has offered when some significant event interferes with their vision of reality?
Obama Warns Russia Violating Ukraine Sovereignty VIDEO 2/28/2014
And now Russia is invading the Ukraine and Obama is shaking his useless finger at Putin, while Putin does whatever he damn well pleases. Obama is an embarrassment to this nation.
Even the President’s signature legislation, the Affordable Healthcare Act, is a complete and utter disaster. The President lied bout it and he continues to lie. This is where even the people who voted for this fraud are starting to feel the pain.
The accident has already happened and we have spun out of control—we just haven’t hit anything solid yet.
“Resolved, that the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government . . . whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”
– Thomas Jefferson, /Draft Kentucky Resolutions/ 
Obama’s ambitions and his policies are reckless militarily, socially, economically, diplomatically etc. We are ignoring the obvious ideological conflicts that are keeping us from dealing with our circumstance effectively. To complicate that, Obama admin has embraced the false pretense of AGW a nonexistent problem. So, we can’t speak the truth, we are embracing a climate ‘sham’, we are self-mutilating our healthcare system, denuding our defenses and teaching our children to be idiot serfs. Our future is not bright.
Socialism doesn’t work. It has never worked at any time in history. Free markets and individuality are not a part of socialism. Obama isn’t stimulating the markets he is printing more money and therefore diluting its value. He is regulating businesses to paralysis.
Obama is at least a Muslim sympathizer and he shows no concern for the Christian genocide being perpetrated by Muslims around the world. Islam is incongruent with Western societies—Islam is intolerant of gays, music, art and free speech. Free markets and individuality are not a part of Islam and it isn’t Islamophobic to be critical of Islam. But, Obama says it is his duty as POTUS to defend anyone who portrays Islam in a bad light. If only that damnable, racist, tea Party would stop mucking things up!
It isn’t the Tea Party that is destroying America—it is the Tea Party trying to stop the destruction of America. I know I am not saying anything new here, but we have to keep an inventory of our circumstance in order to properly and thoughtfully inform those who are just now realizing the seriousness of our nation’s predicament.
The President’s policies are causing inequality … economic opportunity and jobs are the antidote for inequality, not Obama’s psychotic socialist visions of utopia.
The states must restore the balance of power and I think Mark Levin has the answer. The Founders installed an emergency brake handle in the Constitution; we just need to break the glass and pull the damn thing!
The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.
Mark Levin “The Liberty Amendments” – (COMPLETE) Sean Hannity Special – Fox News – 8-16-13
Mark Levin is probably America’s number one defender of liberty and the Constitution. The Left despises him and would love to silence him. It has been suggested that conservative talk radio is angry, mean and volatile, when it really is not. Serious subjects are discussed, factual evidence is hashed over and sincere passion is demonstrated where liberty is concerned. Logic is paired with morality and “feelings” do not trump reality. Conservatism is not an ideology, it is a way of life; it employs the combination of experience and knowledge, or “wisdom,” to guide one through life’s tumult of good and bad experiences. Individual responsibility is the primary order of the day and you don’t need government to make that happen. The Left thinks government should be involved in every aspect of your life and conservatives want the govt. to stay the hell out of their lives.
Tyranny’s encroachment on liberty is vile and unacceptable. Progressivism and Islam must be made to back down. If that’s how YOU want to live, then go to that place on the planet that subscribes to your beliefs and enjoy. DO NOT make me change MY way of life in order to suit YOUR beliefs. America was never intended to be “fundamentally transformed” by some adolescent ego maniac.
“I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
– Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush [September 23, 1800]
