Afghanistan: The "Good" War?

I'm not entirely sure how popular this is going to make me amongst both Obama supporters and conservatives, but I do not in any way endorse our pursuit of offensive military interventionism in Afghanistan. We've weakened our national security by provoking hostility and violence in people that are inherently evil. The more troops we send, the larger the backlash against us. On top of that, we are getting other countries involved in our mess. We continue to spend billions of dollars on overseas warfare when we have so many domestic issues to deal with on our own land. I believe in a strong military and a strong national defense, but I seek a primarily noninterventionist foreign policy with the exception of diplomacy and measures against direct threats and attacks.

Instead of securing our borders, implementing a tighter immigration policy, creating a strong missile defense system, increasing domestic defense funding, and militarizing space, we are spending far too much money that is provided by taxpayers, money that is printed by the Federal Reserve, or money that isn't there on overseas ventures. This is increasing our debt in addition to weakening our national security. The backlash against us becomes stronger and stronger each day. We freed the Iraqis from an evil dictator, yet thousands of our troops died, our spending was out of control, and we've brought ourselves into an economic disaster. Of course, there were so many other contributing factors to our crisis: the bad government-mandated banking loans, the inflationary deficit spending by the government and Federal Reserve system, the overtaxation, the wildly socialist spending bills, and the continued printing of money that is devaluing our dollar and will eventually lead to a currency crash. We're increasing all of these things along with our expansion of war in Afghanistan.

Politicians will assure you that their overseas affairs are for a good purpose. The unfortunate thing is that people believe them. The difference between a warmonger and a proponent of a strong national defense is that warmongers pursue war even if the goal isn't for peace or defense. They might fight for oil, money, power, indoctrination, political reasons, or anything else that they attempt to hide behind the backs of their citizens. Proponents of a strong national defense believe that we should keep ourselves protected for security without giving up essential liberties and that we should only use offensive measures when we are attacked or when there is an imminent threat to our national security.

President Obama calls Afghanistan a "good" war. What reason does he have to justify this? He uses "security" and "peacekeeping" as the basis for his position, but we all know that Obama is a pathological liar. He completely turned around on repealing the Patriot Act, he went against his supposed anti-war principles, he raised spending to higher levels than Bush did, his "no new taxes" claim is an obvious myth, he wants to continue with warantless wiretaps and searches, he wants to mandate that people buy health coverage even though he went against it in his campaign, his policies are hurting the poor rather than helping them, he is stifling the individual achievement that he preaches about, and his broken promises keep piling up on each other.

How can we trust a pathological liar to fight a "good" and "just" war? We can't! This is classic Chicago politics, and President Obama is a product of a crooked and criminal system of government.

Congressman Ron Paul used this analogy to describe our situation in Afghanistan: If China was building bases over here, our backlash would grow as their troops expanded. Many of us would become hostile, there would be people shooting at each other, and the extremists that live on our soil would want to invade or attack China. It's like pouring salt on a wound. One of Ron Paul's greatest speeches is artistically glorified in this stunning video:

I apologize, but I just can't top that. By and far, that is the greatest speech Ron Paul has ever given. I know it makes me less popular among mainstream conservatives to support this oddball Republican, but his words, actions, and principles reflect that of the Founding Fathers, who would be outraged if they found out what was happening today. They wouldn't support American imperialism. They would vehemently oppose it, considering the powerful monarchic structure that they sought independence and freedom from.

Our politicians keep lying to us, yet we support the very same wars in hopes that things will somehow be different and that we will be fighting for the cause of liberty and security rather than greed, reputation, and imperialism. Our courageous troops are strong in their convictions, yet the government is stabbing them right in the back. Former President Bush and President Obama do not truly support the troops. They betrayed the cause, and they betrayed America.

After sending thousands upon thousands of troops into Afghanistan, Obama has actually delayed the recent surge. However, the worst is yet to come. He may pull a few troops out of Iraq and delay the Afghanistan surge in order to deceive the people in the anti-war movement as well as noninterventionists, but his goals are to expand military force in order to gain power, money, reputation, oil, and control. This man is a dangerous warmonger. Warmongers weaken our national defense by provoking hostility and violence within our enemies.

On top of everything, Obama is giving comfort and financial aid to those who would rather do harm to us, and the Founding Fathers concluded that to be unconstitutional. Therefore, Obama is, again, violating Constitutional law, which is perfect ground for impeachment. We could have done it to Bush, but we didn't. We can't let Obama get away with what Bush did, considering the fact that Obama is only expanding the agenda of a corrupt administration.

How can we allow this corruption to prosper so greatly in a country that was founded on the principles of freedom, morality, equal protection, and accountibility? We can't let Obama expand the executive powers farther than Bush did, for if we let this happen, there is no turning back. It is great that - in our country - the government is Constitutionally accountable to its citizens, and we must take advantage of that great power that the Founding Fathers gave to us. We must elect representatives that reflect true American principles, we must seek to hold accountable those who violate our precious U.S. Constitution, and we must stand up for the rights that were endowed by our Creator from the very beginning.

Speak out in whatever way you can, for only we can truly change our destiny for the better. Let's return to true American principles that have stayed in the minds of hearts of countless generations. It's time to take back America.

Viva la revolution!

Have a fabulous day. God bless you, and God bless America.

The Indoctrination of a Young Generation

Oh, dear God! Yesterday, I showed a scary worksheet that students had to finish, but today is even scarier. Let's roll the clip, shall we?

Song One:

Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama!

He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again

Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama!

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay

Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama!

He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance

Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama!

He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight

Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama!


Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama!

Song Two:

Hello, Mr. President! We honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say, "Hooray!"

Hello, Mr. President! You're number one!
The first black president to lead this great nation!

Hello, Mr. President! We honor your great plans
To make this country's economy number one again!

Hooray, Mr. President! We're really proud of you!
And we stand for all Americans under the great red, white, and blue!

So continue, Mr. President! We know you'll do the trick
So here's a hearty hip-hooray ...

Hip, hip, hooray!
Hip, hip, hooray!
Hip hip, hooray!
I'm sorry, but the teacher that forced these kids to praise President Obama through song should receive a long lecture and some kind of punishment by the principal. This, for one, cannot stand. How dare a school push its own political agenda on its students? That's preposterous! We don't live in Imperial Japan or Nazi Germany. This is the United States of America, and we're supposed to be letting kids believe what they want to about President Obama. We need to be executing a balanced educational curriculum, not an agenda of political indoctrination.These schools are funded by your tax dollars, people!

Never in my lifetime have I seen a president so scarily worshipped by people across the country. Is he Jesus or something? People kiss the very ground he walks upon. He's taking away our freedoms, sending our children to Afghanistan, and pushing for both mandatory community and military service. On top of that, people are being locked up based on mere suspicion and free speech. Why are we letting this happen?

Have we lost all sanity, people? We need to be aware of these types of things. President Obama is a greedy, power-hungry dictator just like the last president, yet people just ignore it. Those who heavily criticized the Bush administration for the Patriot Act - and rightfully so - are now staying silent. Those who protested the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now pretending that President Obama isn't expanding violence abroad. Obama is simply a black Bush, but no one cares because he calls himself a liberal.

Unfortunately, this isn't the sole example of explicit political indoctrination in our schools and in our children. Just look at these kids:

Ever heard of a little thing called brainwashing? That's exactly what you just saw. It makes me so sad that these kids don't even know what they're singing about. How did we get to this point? I had my doubts about President Obama being a beloved dictator, but now some of the very things that happened during totalitarian regimes are happening now. This isn't Nazi Germany yet. It's far from that, my friends. Unfortunately, we're beginning to see elements of it show up right in front of our faces. We have to stand up and put a stop to these things before it becomes too late.

Oh, there's more clips, my friends. The proof is everywhere. If you thought those last two videos were creepy, you haven't seen anything yet. Take a look at this clip:

Call me paranoid, but a youth brigade praising Obama as if he is the Messiah? That's absolutely terrifying. The people indoctrinating their children seem like geniunely good people, but they know exactly what they're doing.

I don't want my children to be indoctrinated like this. If it was a Republican president that were being worshipped like this, I would be just as terrified. In fact, this just might happen in the future, so I might have to inform my readers of a little thing called neoconservative indoctrination. It's possible, people.

Other forms of indoctrination include kids placing their hearts on their chests and facing toward Obama instead of the American flag; numerous choruses about how great he is; worksheets and curriculums that enforce the administration's political agenda; and kids chanting, "I pledge allegiance to the Earth," instead of, "I pledge allegiance to the flag." The list could go on and on.

Folks, it doesn't stop there. All over the world, kids are being taught to worship the leader of the free world. I may sound like an extremist lunatic, but this is just plain scary:

Just when I began to wonder if this madness would stop, I was proven wrong. I expect more of this to come, and I'm going to continue to inform people of these outrageous situations. There are already schools and roads and buildings named after President Obama. You see his face everywhere! His voice can be heard all over the airwaves. His "teachings" are being put forth to students everywhere.

I want to believe that none of this is happening, but the truth is right in front of us. If we don't take action now, even we will be indoctrinated. These people who are brainwashing our kids are goodhearted people, but they know exactly what they are doing. They know that they are shoving their political agenda down young throats in order to establish a generation that will believe and promote the very same things they are. This brainwashing doesn't just affect our children. It affects us, too. This is by and far one of the creepiest videos I've ever seen in my life:

I'm sorry, but this resembles dictatorial propaganda. This wasn't just shown on television and YouTube. No, no, no. It was also presented to school children. Do you get what I'm trying to say now? If you don't think any of this is creepy, you must be completely and utterly brainwashed. Our president is supposed to serve us, but instead we're being told to serve him. I don't know about you, but I serve no one but me, my partner, my family, my country, and my God. I don't serve any political idol.

What you have just seen, heard, and read is real. I urge you to stop denying it to yourself. I had to. This is just so much to absorb. It's difficult to believe that something like this is happening in our very own country. Our Founding Fathers are rolling around in their graves. Please take the chance to tell everyone you know about this mass indoctrination of our youth and our country. Do it now. Talk to your friends, your families, and your partners. We need to take back America before it's too late.

Viva la revolution!

Hooray for Liberal Health Care Propaganda!

Try not to get too worked up about this folks, but I recently stumbled upon this worksheet as I was surfing the internet:

If you need to, click on the image to get a closer look. I am in so much shock, that I haven't a word to say. I'm going to leave it up to the readers. Leave your comments below.

Extending the Patriot Act: It's Not Just a Bush Thing Anymore

People are angry with the Obama administration for one of the many reasons they were angry with the Bush administration. Apparently, President Obama changed his mind about the Patriot Act, one of the most unconstitutional violations of civil liberties ever to be conceived - and he wants to extend it. So what exactly does the Patriot Act do? Let's review:

1) Terrorism laws include "domestic terrorists," which in the case of the government, might include protesters and organizations that do not fit within the administration's ideology.

2) Law enforcement is given more power to conduct secret searches, including warantless wiretaps and access to medical, business, library, and phone records. Basically, your right to privacy is completely stripped if the government, police, or other body of law enforcement says it is, even if you have not been proven guilty or evident of committing crimes.

3) The FBI can investigate people without any valid reason whatsoever. If it's for "intelligence purposes," you're forced to cooperate against your will.

>4) Non-citizens can be jailed upon mere suspicion, without being proven guilty of any crime. They can be held in six-month increments, and may even be deported and denied re-admission to the United States for engaging in free speech.

There is no way that these policies can be sustained under our Constitution without violating it, which is done anyway. So how does the government justify it? One word:


Tell me how this is not scary. It's sickening how the government uses "security" to justify its pursuit of power. This is all it's about, folks: power. The Patriot Act is supported by both Democrats and Republicans, despite the public outrage that has stemmed from it. Sure it takes away necessary freedoms in the name of security, but hey, it's "protecting the people." Instead of ceasing all warfare to reduce hostility and violence abroad, let's just throw the Constitution right out the window and pretend that we still care about our Founding principles.

The American people aren't that stupid, are they?

Liberty is at the heart of our very existence. If we throw it away, what do we get? Well, folks, we get an ever-expanding government that will just keep taking away our freedoms until they own our bodies, property, and lives. Without freedom, the people will be powerless and ultimately unhappy. Without our happiness and our livelihood, we won't have anything. Our society will crumble before our very eyes. It will become unproductive and stricken with poverty, and we will only have a global elite to help us get out of it.

People need space. People need to be left alone. People need air to breathe, they need to be content within the safety of their homes, and they need the freedom to do the things that make them happy without harming anyone else. Is it so much to ask the power-hungry leaders of the world to get off our backs and let us be? Must we resort to becoming slaves of a powerful force of greed and totalitarianism that wants nothing but the complete and utter destruction of our Founding principles?

You lied, President Obama. This isn't the change that we sought. We thought you'd be different, but we were wrong. Not only did you betray the very people that supported you, but you betrayed the rest of America as well.

Freedom is a precious gift. When we are free, we can prosper and live the way that we want to. I know damn well that I'm much more productive, much friendlier, and much, much, much happier when I'm given space to do as I please. I know that sounds selfish, but I thrive on my personal happiness and the love that I share with my family and with my wonderful girlfriend. Without that, I'd have nothing. I am grateful everyday that I get to keep those things, and so should the rest of you.

It's time for both liberals and conservatives to stand together to oppose this horrid violation of freedom. If not for others, do it for yourself, your family, and the ones you love. This affects all of us, and we can shape our destiny if we just give it our all.

Don't let them take your livelihood and happiness away from you, for if you do, you will soon regret it. Remember these words, and your spirit will march forward to the drums of freedom:

"Give me liberty, or give me death!"

Evidently, Protests Could Lead to Violence!

This has probably been posted by hundreds of other bloggers, but Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi choked up as she talked about how the language that us terrible Nazis are using will lead to violence:

"Balance of liberty and security?" I'm not even gonna say anything. Comments?

Two Little Jackasses

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, a scary woman to say the least, acted like a complete and utter bitch at a recent press conference. Apparently, someone sneezed the wrong way.

As you can see, Sebelius isn't the only one who made herself look like an arrogant, elitist snob. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, who has showed us time and time again that he is completely and utterly full of himself, wouldn't stop with the insults. If I could, I'd slap those two really, really, really hard.

Wouldn't you?

Are Conservatives Racist?

While conservatives have names like socialist, commie, pinko, hippy, tree-hugger, econazi, and beatnik for liberals, liberals have their own share of stereotypical names for conservatives, including fascist, capitalist pig, redneck, hillbilly, and Bible-thumper. Increasingly, though, I've seen the term "racist" pop up more and more each and everyday. When President Barack Obama came into office, the term was flung around endlessly. It reminds me of how conservatives often called liberals "sexist" for things they said about Sarah Palin during the election.

In fact, conservatives are being accused of being KKK sympathizers and members of the Klan. Some people might even call us the "RepubliKlan." A lot of liberals don't endorse this kind of name-calling at all, but the accusation that we're racist is starting to come from prominent celebrities.

Not only does Garofalo accuse us of being racist rednecks, but she also accuses us of being cerebrally-challenged anti-intellectuals. On top of that, she accuses conservative women and minorities of suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. I guess that means I suffer from Triple Stockholm Syndrome then, being a girl, a Native American, and a lesbian. Boy, do I hate myself!

If she actually took a step outside of her Hollywood bubble, she would realize that the tea party protesters aren't such bad people. In fact, there are hardly any sentiments against race expressed at the tea parties. I will admit that some conservatives are racist, but there are just as many liberal racists as there are conservative ones. Racists come in all colors, nationalities, backgrounds, and political affiliations.

These people are just making a case against an out-of-control government that is spending away the futures of their kin, taking away their Constitutional liberties, and destroying the value of the dollar at a rapidly growing pace. These tea parties are making a case not only against so-called liberal Congressional leaders, but also against so-called conservative Congressional leaders.

This isn't just about Obama. It's about the entire establishment.

Did it ever occur to these people calling us racist that perhaps it's the fact that President Obama is one of the most radically pro-government, pro-tax, pro-abortion, pro-socialist presidents ever that has people flocking to tea party protests? We disagree with his political policies more than any other president before him. There are bloggers like me who write entire articles supported with facts and opinions that have nothing to do with race.

I have friends from across the political spectrum, so I'm not saying that all liberals are quick to draw the race card. I would like to bring up the fact, again, that conservatives played the sex card during the election. It's just that I've recently noticed this growing trend of accusations that we are bigots and racists and Klan members. I know liberals have damn well been accused of that, too, because of the history of the Democratic Party, but it seems that the race card is being played more and more everyday now that we have a black president.

We even have former presidents accusing us of racism. Jimmy Carter had this to say:

Even if you do approve of Carter, you have to admit that this was not one his best moments. His argument had little basis in reality. If he had said, "Some of the opposition is because the president is black, but most of it is not," that would have been acceptable, but he stated that the basis of the opposition was race-based.

Maybe it's just hard for some Progressives to grasp why some people would not support policies that seem humanitarian at the surface, so they jump to the conclusion that, "Hey, the only way they could oppose such a charming, eloquent, good-looking, black man is if they were racist."

A few positions that make people think we're racist:

Most conservatives oppose race-based Affirmative Action. We understand the basis behind it: Minorities and women faced oppression in the past, and some people think they might need policies that level out the playing field. However, those of us who oppose Affirmative Action in one way or another believe that giving an unfair advantage to any group, whether it be a majority or a minority, is unjustified. True equality means equal opportunity, and people should be hired and accepted into institutions based on qualifications, not upon immutable differences.

Most conservatives do not believe in slavery reparations. People are often clouded with the guilt of their ancestors and want to make it up to those whose ancestors were slaves. However, those of us who oppose slavery reparations want to make it up to minorities by leaving the past behind and appreciate them for their gifts and not their skin color. As a Native American, I would rather be acknowledged for my character than be pitied by society.

Most conservatives oppose hate crimes legislation. This type of thing is a very controversial type of legislation to oppose. Since it seems like something that should be a given in our society, people will wonder why anyone would oppose it. The answer is simple: Those of us who oppose hate crimes legislation believe in equal protection, not special protection. Everyone should be protected equally, regardless of immutable differences. Someone who kills a white man for not getting drugs in on time should receive the same sentence as someone who kills a black man for being black. Of course, we'd factor in how much the victim suffered and whatnot, but equal crimes deserve equal prosecution. Hate crimes legislation is supposed to promote equality, but it does not truly achieve this. The alternative solution is the true promotion of equality.

Most conservatives advocate limited federal welfare. A significant amount of the poor are minorities, and I know this because of my own relatives in the reservation. Those who are strong supporters of federal welfare wonder why people would not want to financially aid the poor, but those of us who advocate limited federal welfare have legitimate concerns. These are not limited to economic concerns - we are also concerned about society and the well-being of the poor. We believe that forcefully taking from one person to give to another is an act of aggression that promotes hostility. It also lowers income levels across the board, making the poor poorer because of the limited job opportunities. What we want to do is promote welfare through private charity and voluntary public donations. There are two social concerns that need to be addressed: If you allow people to give out of generosity and kindness, then they will be more giving, less hostile, and more respectful to humanity. Even if they do end up buying material goods for themselves instead of aiding the less fortunate, it will benefit the economy, which will make our country wealthier. Logic and history indicates that the poor do better in a wealthy society. When you force people to give, it is no longer generosity or kindness that gives - it's merely force. We also happen to believe in an old Chinese proverb that says, "If you give a man a fish, you can feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you can feed him for a lifetime." What we want to do is motivate people to work so that we won't have to forcefully take from anyone else.

As you can see, those are some of many reasons people think we're racist. People also stereotype based on small groups of people that are actually racist, such as conservative KKK members. However, one must also note that there are liberal KKK members as well. As pointed out earlier, racists come in all shapes and sizes. In this video, these people obviously took a few stereotypes and misinterpretations, and made a generalization about it:

Not only did they make some pretty broad generalizations about conservatives, but they also come to the conclusion that the very idea of conservatism is racist in and of itself. I, as a conservative, do seek change, but the change I seek is a change in Washington, not in the fundamental principles upon which America was founded upon. I want our government to revert back to policies that worked and not ignore our social and economic freedoms that were guaranteed by our Founders. That is the kind of change I seek.

Must we really resort to the lowest common denominator in order to promote our political ideals? Liberals and conservatives are both guilty of doing so. We forget that maybe we just have differing viewpoints that we need to educate ourselves on. We get so lost in our political disagreements that we forget that we are all human.

And we're not victims either.

I am proud to be who I am. I may be a mildly autistic Native American lesbian girl, but that does not make me a victim. I am sick and tired of being pitied for who I am. I am a survivor who takes responsibility for her own actions, and I am not going to let people tell me that I need to change my lifestyle or beliefs because of that. Some people think it's pretty sick that I'm on the far-right, but I stand by my beliefs, and I am not ashamed of them.

Is it so wrong to disagree with a president that is amazingly well-known and well-liked the world over? Some of us just don't see things the way the rest of the world does, and that's okay because our political differences are only one part of us. Instead of judging each other based on stereotypes and generalizations, we should educate ourselves to learn the true meaning behind opposing beliefs.

I admire liberals who defend conservatives from accusations of racism and bigotry because of misinterpreted political positions, words, and ideas. I admire conservatives who do the very same for liberals whose ideas are wildly twisted out of proportion.

If we step out of our own political bubble once and awhile, we can learn to understand why people think and feel the way that they do. Even if we disagree with them, we can at least try to understand where they're coming from. Political discussions are constructive and educational if done so in a civil manner, and we all need to do a better job of that.

With that, I would like to wish you all a fabulous day. God bless you, and God bless America.

"You Lie!"

Remember this?

That was awesome! Again, again!

One more time, baby!

The brave man who shouted this during President Obama's ridiculous speech was none other than South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson. Of course, you probably already know that. As you might also know, people got all up in his junk, so he apologized.

He apologizes, right? Apology accepted.

Unfortunately, there were still people demanding another apology. Why? Who knows! Here's what Joe had to say:

Now even though the bill insists that illegal immigrants cannot receive federal benefits, Joe insists otherwise.

House Democrats voted to "discipline" Joe Wilson for the outburst he had already apologized for. This is really starting to get ridiculous. This is the perfect event to distract people from the real health care debate. If Ron Paul were president right now, and someone did that to him, I would try to put my focus back on the health care debate instead of focusing all my energy over some person who accused him of lying. It's not like Joe Wilson got up and shouted the "N" word, now is it?

We have far more serious and negative issues to deal with than some Congressman who accused the president of lying in the heat of the moment, especially if he apologized for it, and the White House accepted his apology. If I were Joe, I would bend down, turn towards House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and say, "Spank me. I'm a bad little boy." Then she'd give me a few firm spanks with her hand for awhile, and they'd leave me alone. If they didn't, I would allow everyone in Congress to give me one free spanking. Boy, would that be fun!

Forget this already, and let's move on.

Illegal Immigrants Will Not Recieve Federal Payments for Health Care, Says the Bill

I really would like to take more time to read H.R. 3200, as I did not see this part of the bill:
Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.
Read Sec 246 here.

The health care bill is far from being plain language, but this part of the bill is very clear. Although I oppose H.R. 3200, I have to admit that I was mistaken on illegal immigrants - so far. Will they still receive federal payments for health care? Only time can tell, but one thing is for certain: The health care bill says otherwise.

Obviously, bills can be modified after being passed, but it would be pretty sneaky of anyone to change this even in the slightest manner. Fellow conservatives: At least admit that illegal immigrants aren't said to receive federal benefits under this bill as of now, even if actions prove otherwise later on.

Another point people make, however, is that our immigration policy is very confusing, and people have been known to manipulate the system. Readers, please comment.

Even though illegal immigrants are barred from federal benefits in the bill, will they still receive benefits?

9/11: Unforgettable

I remember it like it was yesterday.

I was in second grade, and I was informed of the event at school. The principal gathered the students together to give us the terrible news. Tears were pouring out of her eyes as she spoke to us.

"Students, I want you to stay strong. Two planes - just crashed into the Twin Towers in New York. We were attacked."

Everyone in the room was confused and shocked. It stayed dead silent as she continued to speak.

"But I want you to know that everything is going to be okay. It's being taken care of. You're all safe."

That's all she said before we were let back to our classrooms. Some of the kids and teachers were crying, some of them were talking about how scared they were, and some of us just were simply in a quiet state of awe.

I was one of the silent ones.

I had no idea what to feel or think. I didn't cry, but I felt as if I should be. I suddenly lost all of my emotions as I tried to sort out the thoughts in my mind. Everyone went home on buses, cars, or foot like they normally would, but we didn't feel the same.

We weren't the same.

I got home, threw down my backpack, and looked at the television screen. They wouldn't stop showing it. Over and over again, I saw two planes crash into the towers, fire blazing from the exterior, people running and screaming for their lives. It broke my heart. Smoke flew all the way to Lady Liberty, the symbol of freedom and happiness. You could almost imagine her weeping for her nation.>

We all weeped for our nation.

None of us were the same after 9/11. For an entire year, and beyond for some, we were the peaceful, kind, and giving people we once were. We pushed aside our politics, our disagreements, and our differences, and we got together to share our patriotism, faith, and brotherly love.

We gave blood, we donated food, we gave gifts to people we didn't even know, and we all helped one another out. America's sense of unity was restored.

But then we lost it.

We fought endless wars. We gave up our liberties in the name of "security." We spent money we didn't have because we thought it would go to a good cause. We let the Constitution shred right before us. The government manipulated our broken minds, hearts, and spirits into believing we could trust them.

The war, the liberties that got taken away, the endless government spending sprees, and the Constitution being thrown right out the window - 9/11 was an excuse for all of it, and we drank it up like a bunch of sheep.

Our government betrayed us by taking a terrible event and using it against us for their own sick pleasures. We let them do it, and in doing that, we betrayed ourselves.

It is time again to become the Americans we were on 9/12. It's possible for us to come together once again. We need to give all that we can to pick up the broken pieces of our nation and put them back together.

We thought we could trust the new president, but we were wrong. He's just like the old one.

We're letting him get away with violent warfare. We're letting him take away our freedoms. We're letting him spend, spend, spend until the dollar is obliterated. We're letting him rip up the Constitution and enjoy himself while he's at it.

It's time for us to stand up to the self-centered, incompetent government bureacrats, the greedy, corrupted corporate scumbags, and the Federal Reserve totalitarians that want America to give up everything she has so that they can advance their own sick globalized goals.

There is a movement called the 9/12 Project. I want everyone to check it out.

Glenn Beck's Common Sense - an outstanding book that I highly recommend regardless of your political affiliation - outlines 9 principles and 12 values that everyone should try to live by.

The 9 Principles:
1. America is good.
2. I believe in God, and He is the center of my life.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
5. If you break the law, you pay the penalty. Justice is blind, and no one is above it.
6. I have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
7. I work hard for what I have, and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them; they answer to me.

The 12 Values:
Hard Work
Personal Responsibility

Please send this to your state senators and district representative:

To Congress: The 5 Pledges
1. I believe in a balanced budget and therefore will vote for a freeze in government spending until that goal is realized.
2. I believe government should not increase the financial burden on its citizenry during difficult economic times. Therefore, I will oppose all tax increases until our economy has rebounded.
3. I believe more than four decades of US dependence on foreign oil is a travesty, therefore I will support an energy plan that calls for immediately increasing usage of all domestic resources including nuclear energy, natural gas, and coal as necessary.
4. I believe in the sovereignty and security of our country and therefore will support measures to close our borders except for designated immigration points so we will know who is entering and why. I will vehemently oppose any measure giving another country, the United Nations, or any other entity power over US citizens.
5. I believe the United States of America is the greatest country on earth and therefore will not apologize for policies or actions which have served to free more and feed more people around the world than any other nation on the planet.

Please contact your state senators here and your district representative here. I did it, and you should, too.

God bless you, and have a fabulous day!

Presidential Address to Congress on Health Care Reform: More Lies from the Leader of the Free World

Shortly after writing my previous entry – which you should definitely read – I made my way to the television. What I saw absolutely disgusted me. My eyes glared angrily at the screen, my fists clenched in rage, and my mind blowing a fuse as I listened to the lying, deceptive scumbag give his little speech.

President Obama – you make me SICK!

I completely lost control. All of a sudden, I was throwing objects at the screen, muttering insane utterances to myself, and clenching my teeth as that phony leader of the free world pretended that he was all innocent and sweet.

I wanted to punch him right in the face!

A brave Congressman screamed exactly what I had been shouting at the screen the whole time.

“You lie!”

And lie that scumbag did. He just wouldn’t stop. How the hell does he get away with this?
"We are the only democracy, the only advanced democracy on Earth, the only wealthy nation that allows such hardship for millions of its people."
We’re not a Democracy, Mr. President. We’re a Democratic Republic. Even Benjamin Franklin admitted that. The reason we are not a Democracy is because we did not want to give a “majority” the ability to take God-given rights away from other people. We wanted everyone to have the same rights as everyone else, and that’s why the Founders wrote our beautiful U.S. Constitution. They wanted people to have the ability to elect representatives that actually represented them, representatives to protect the rights that were guaranteed by the Constitution, to make sure that no power big or small, minority or majority, government or citizenship would take away rights from anyone else.

There are so many people in “advanced” nations that experience hardships everyday. What are you trying to say, Mr. President? That we’re stuck in the past? Well, sir, I love the principles of our Founding Fathers, and you can’t change me no matter what you say or do.
"Well, the time for bickering is over. The time for games has passed."
Do you think we forgot about this, Mr. President?

You tell opposition to shut up and get out of the way. You refuse offers to have meetings with the Republicans, and you have done so since April. Other Democratic leaders do the exact same thing. I’m not saying Republicans aren't just as bad. They are. It’s just that you’re pretending to be all bipartisan, but your actions don’t reflect that. You say one thing, but you do another. Do you really expect us to believe you, sir?
"First, if you are among the hundreds of millions of Americans who already have health insurance through your job, or Medicare, or Medicaid, or the V.A., nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have."
"Let me – let me repeat this: nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have."=
I wonder how you got away with that one. Even most on the Left know that’s not true. You continually leave out that if an employer was to switch to the government’s alternative plan, people will be changing their coverage and doctors. Is it so much to ask to at least admit that?
"And insurance companies will be required to cover, with no extra charge, routine checkups and preventive care, like mammograms and colonoscopies. Because there's no reason we shouldn't be catching diseases like breast cancer and colon cancer before they get worse.
It does make sense, and it does save lives, but in no way does it save money. These things have a cost to them, sir, and most people who take these tests are not discovered to have the diseases, so it does end up costing a few extra bucks. It doesn’t save money at all. Again, these tests are great, but you at least need to be honest and upfront with the American people.
"Now, even if we provide these affordable options, there may be those, and especially the young and the healthy, who still want to take the risk and go without coverage. There may still be companies that refuse to do right by their workers by giving them coverage.

The problem is, such irresponsible behavior costs all the rest of us money. If there are affordable options and people still don't sign up for health insurance, it means we pay for these people's expensive emergency room visits.

If some businesses don't provide workers health care, it forces the rest of us to pick up the tab when their workers get sick, and gives those businesses an unfair advantage over their competitors.

And unless everybody does their part, many of the insurance reforms we seek, especially requiring insurance companies to cover preexisting conditions, just can't be achieved.

That's why under my plan, individuals will be required to carry basic health insurance – just as most states require you to carry auto insurance."
Slow down there, buddy. If health care is truly a right, then people should have the right not to have it or to pay for it as they please. If they want to pay for it directly, then they have a right to do it. You can offer alternatives and you can give people the opportunity to have health care or insurance, but you have no Constitutional authority to force anyone to have health care or insurance.

You blame individuals and businesses for people having to pay for the financial expenses of others, but you forget the laws the government makes – or you just don’t want to admit them. The government forces us to pay for expenses other than ours all the time. Under that logic, taxes should be lower, federal welfare should be reformed or abolished, and you should not be advocating a public option, you filthy hypocrite.

I think the health care system would be much better if money was provided on a local level by private charities, but that’s a whole different topic entirely. As you can see, I do advocate free health care. I do advocate health care for all. It’s just that the Congressional plan being proposed right now is neither affordable nor reasonable, and I sure as hell don't trust our government.

Do I advocate states requiring people to have auto insurance? Hell no! I use the exact same logic as I use here. Readers, I urge you to read my previous entry as soon as possible. It’s very important that you do.
"Now, there are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false. The reforms – the reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally."
The thing is that it’s not exactly clear. Nothing in the bill will stop illegal immigrants from being insured by any alternative plan. Illegal immigrants can also obtain private insurance from some insurers already (although they do have a right to do so). If the bill does pass, with or without the public option, we cannot be certain that illegal immigrants will be covered because the bill as proposed can’t currently stop it. To be fair, it doesn’t say anything about insuring illegal immigrants either. Regardless of your political position, facts are facts.
"And one more misunderstanding I want to clear up: under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions, and federal conscience laws will remain in place."
As of now, that’s a lie. Abortions are considered “health care” under federal law and also, more specifically, “reproductive health care.” How can we trust you after you this speech?

"And – and I will make sure that no government bureaucrat or insurance company bureaucrat gets between you and the care that you need."
It does and will happen. As of now, it’s inevitable.
"Now, here's what you need to know. First, I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits, either now or in the future."
Are you sure, sir?
"I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit now or in the future – period."
The reality, Mr. President, is that every time you open your mouth, more than $10 thousand are added to our national debt. You can even check the U.S. National Debt Clock in real time. Logic indicates that this plan will not amount to a surplus. As soon as you spend federal money that isn’t there, debt is added. It’s just that simple. You and your Federal Reserve masters praise inflationary deficit spending right in front of the public. Let’s take a look at this clip first:

No matter what you or McCain said, it was clear that you both embraced and still do embrace inflationary deficit spending by your actions. McCain’s part in this was supporting the majority of pork-infested, deficit-thriving spending bills proposed by President Bush. Since this is an article about you, let’s focus on your part in this. You claim that you will pay back taxpayers, which would require first to take money from them. This indicates that your spending plans are going to be expensive. Taxpayers can’t pay for all of it. If they do, they will eventually see the most dramatic tax increase in years. What you do is you get your Federal Reserve friends to print more money, which results in hyperinflation. It doesn’t stop there. You still don’t have enough money to fund the plan, so you spend money that isn’t there and claim that you will somehow pay it back later. That is inflationary deficit spending by definition!

You love Ben Bernanke, right? You shower him with praise every time you get the chance, and you appointed him to a second term. You adore the things he has done. Let’s take a look at what he has had to say:

Basically, he admits that his plans involve printing more money and increasing inflation. He says that he is doing this to get back to a stable economic situation, then tread back from inflationary deficit spending, which was the problem in the first place. It’s called pouring salt on a wound. One theory is that Ben Bernanke knows exactly what he’s doing and that he’s not stupid. He knows that these policies will lead to a larger debt and the destruction of the dollar, which will lead to global poverty.

Why would any person be so sick as to want this?

If everyone is poor and starving, the people of Earth will look to a global elite to make everything better. Through the ages, government officials and their Federal Reserve masters have been talking about a New World Order in which a planetary system of laws should be implemented. This can be summarized in one word: globalization. The policies implemented right now will effectively lead up to that goal.

Your claim that you will not sign the bill if one dime is added to the deficit is completely bogus because you already support the plan that will do exactly that, and even with major modifications, it will still happen. Every time you say that your plans will not add to the deficit, it ends up happening anyway, so how the hell can we trust you?
"I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit now or in the future. Period. And to prove that I'm serious, there will be a provision in this plan that requires us to come forward with more spending cuts if the savings we promise don't materialize."
I still don’t believe you. You and your friends can make your promises, but you don’t keep them. We’re still in Iraq, you’re expanding the war in Afghanistan, you never really wanted to repeal the Patriot Act, you want to force people to have insurance despite what you said in the election, you didn’t cut spending (you're spending more), and your Bush-like “no new taxes” claim is going to be completely and utterly shattered by the time cap-and-trade passes.
"...I know that the Bush administration considered authorizing demonstration projects in individual states to test these ideas. I think it's a good idea, and I'm directing my secretary of health and human services to move forward on this initiative today."
I’m not noting this because this is another lie. I’m noting it because it is more Bush pandering. You don’t really dislike the guy’s policies. You just want to expand them. This statement is nothing compared to the fact that you kept Bush’s defense secretary and you kept the same exact foreign policy that you’re expanding each and everyday.

"Now, this is the plan I'm proposing. It's a plan that incorporates ideas from many of the people in this room tonight – Democrats and Republicans. And I will continue to seek common ground in the weeks ahead. If you come to me with a serious set of proposals, I will be there to listen. My door is always open."
That statement was proven wrong a long time ago. Readers, if you look at what I stated earlier, you will know why this is a lie.
"In 1935, when over half of our seniors could not support themselves and millions had seen their savings wiped away, there were those who argued that Social Security would lead to socialism. But the men and women of Congress stood fast, and we are all the better for it."
No, we’re not. The government spends our Social Security funds, then issues IOUs. They must be repaid by taxes, more printed money, and inflationary deficit spending. From the Congressional Research Center in 1998:
When the government issues a bond to one of its own accounts, it hasn't purchased anything or established a claim against another entity or person. It is simply creating a form of IOU from one of its accounts to another.
From the Office of Management and Budget under the Clinton administration in 1999:
These [trust fund] balances are available to finance future benefit payments and other trust fund expenditures – but only in a bookkeeping sense. These funds are not set up to be pension funds, like the funds of private pension plans. They do not consist of real economic assets that can be drawn down in the future to fund benefits. Instead, they are claims on the Treasury, that, when redeemed, will have to be financed by raising taxes, borrowing from the public, or reducing benefits or other expenditures.
These facts are startling, people! Click here for more information. The only way Social Security would work is if we could trust the government with our money, which we can’t because they spend it on other things.

And another thing...

Our government has become filled with socialists, communists, facists, statists, and totalitarians, sir. They're called Progressives, and they're in both parties. They don't always admit what they are, but their policies reflect their true nature. You are one, Mr. President!

Back to President Obama:
"You see, our predecessors understood that government could not, and should not, solve every problem. They understood that there are instances when the gains in security from government action are not worth the added constraints on our freedom.

But they also understood that the danger of too much government is matched by the perils of too little; that without the leavening hand of wise policy, markets can crash, monopolies can stifle competition, the vulnerable can be exploited.

And they knew that when any government measure, no matter how carefully crafted or beneficial, is subject to scorn; when any efforts to help people in need are attacked as un-American; when facts and reason are thrown overboard and only timidity passes for wisdom, and we can no longer even engage in a civil conversation with each other over the things that truly matter – that at that point we don't merely lose our capacity to solve big challenges. We lose something essential about ourselves.

That was true then. It remains true today."
Translation: “I like big government.”

Oh, Obama, baby, you're so dreamy.

And there you have it, folks. Our Liar in Chief at his best. I included the video and the transcript link below.

Try not to get too angry, but if you do, it's understandable.

Thank you, and have a fabulous day. God bless you, and God bless America.

Forced Health Care Coverage

Some Democrats are pushing for a law that would require the majority of American families to sign up for either a health care insurance plan or whatever else the government will offer depending on what is passed by Congress. To Progressives, this just seems like another warm, fuzzy, feel-good policy to soothe the socialist conscience.

No matter how the politicians up in Washington say it, the meaning is still a push for more government control over your personal life. They may use a lighthearted word to push their agenda, but the translation is this, plain and simple: “Require” means force.

The punishment?


If you refuse health care coverage for whatever reason, you will have to pay for it – even if you have enough money to pay for your health care services directly or you are a perfectly healthy person with a family that will not need health care coverage anytime soon.

The Senate bill will push for a $1000 fine at the least. It seems hypocritical that the Democrats are always preaching that health care is a right – and you may or may not believe that – yet they would strip away your right not to have it. When they do that, it’s no longer a right.

It’s a mandate.

Political history shows us that mandates lead to more government control over personal and economic liberties guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. When you give out of the kindness of your heart, it is generosity, but when you are forced to give, the purpose is defeated. The reason for giving is no longer generosity or human kindness, but rather force. People are less giving now than they were ever before, and this is because they think that since they are forced to provide for the government’s idea of charity, that there is no reason to provide for causes that they believe in.

Republicans will pretend to be on your side, but remember what happened during the last eight years. Don’t forget that. Like the Democrats, they stabbed you right in the back.

Democrats and Republicans may pretend to have a strong position on issues like abortion, gay marriage, and drugs, but really, they use those issues to divide us.

Both sides ultimately have the same agenda: Higher taxes, bigger wars, more inflationary deficit spending, more government control over the free market and over personal lives, and the abandonment of America’s foundational principles for what they think benefits the “greater good.”

Remember that you don’t answer to anyone but yourself, your family, and your God. Don’t let these politicians trick you with their warm, fuzzy, feel-good policies that will only lead to tyranny in the long run.

Don’t let them take away your freedoms. It’s up to you to keep them within your grasp. Once we let the state own our property, our bodies, and our lives, the Progressives, both Democrats and Republicans, will have succeeded in what will only be the beginning of their ultimate goal.

Are you willing to let that happen?
