Show Me the Money.

We got ours the "New Fashioned Way" we stole it. Yes folks, all that money you are grubbing around to get your hands on is yours, your kids, and your grand kids. It has been stolen by those who want to pay off their major bloc supporters, the politicians in Washington, D. C. The U. S. Treasury is being looted and our own tax dollars are being piddled out in bailouts, political payoffs, money for bogus efforts to "Green Up", payments to foreign governments, bloated salaries and retirements for members of the House and Senate, Pork spending, and Czars. The list is endless and seems to grow everyday. And yet, smiling citizens line up to get some, and businesses continue their failed business practices and take all they can get. You are paying your own down payments for cars, appliances, and whatever else the government in its wisdom can come up with, with the hard earned and easily taken tax dollars and future tax dollars of every taxpayer in America.

I for one do not intend to take one dollar from any government sponsored program. We do not need the "Government" to tell us what to do, what to buy, what to read, or what we can listen to. It is unconstitutional for them to do so. The government has so misused the "Commerce Clause" in the constitution that even constitutional scholars can't make heads or tales of the loose nexus they attach to every life controlling tentacle. As individual States however, we can hold to the provisions of the Tenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution and refuse to be bullied by a government that has grown too large, and has illegally bullied its way into every facet of our lives.

In a recent column, economist Thomas Sowell states,

Let's go back to square one. The universe was not made to our specifications. Nor were human beings. So there is nothing surprising in the fact that we are dissatisfied with many things at many times. The big question is whether we are prepared to follow any politician who claims to be able to "solve" our "problem."If we are, then there will be a never ending series of "solutions," each causing new problems calling for still more "solutions."

That way lies a never-ending quest, costing ever increasing amounts of the taxpayers' money and-- more important-- ever greater losses of your freedom to live your own life as you see fit, rather than as presumptuous elites dictate.

Ultimately, our choice is to give up Utopian quests or give up our freedom. This has been recognized for centuries by some, but many others have not yet faced that reality, even today. If you think government should "do something" about anything that ticks you off, or anything you want and don't have, then you have made your choice between Utopia and freedom.

The truth is we must be able to put up with some level of injustice and inequity in order to preserve our freedom. Utopia is not real. Evil in our society is usually rooted out and punished, but we cannot ignore the fact we are human and mistakes will be made. Even when our politicians tell us differently, we know from history that Oligarchies only benefit the ruling elite and the poor still receive crumbs.

All this talk of "Crisis" is planned to create fear. Without an abiding faith in Almighty God, people are left to put their trust in the "Nanny State" to solve their every problem. It will never happen folks. In just a few months we have seen our National debt soar, and all the while those in power tell us that new mega-spending programs are deficit neutral. For all of you who believe this, I say quit watching "American Idol" for a few minutes and do the math. Do something for yourselves and by yourselves for a change. Our freedom has been bought with the blood and sacrifice of our forefathers and should not be handed over without a fight to a bunch of Marxist radicals who don't even like our country. This includes our mysterious new president and his plethora of unvetted advisers from convicted felons, to self avowed communists. This is no longer Democrat, Republican, or Independent, it is a fight for our very survival and you had better ready yourself for it.

Be prepared to make wholesale changes in 2010. I believe if someone in Washington, D.C. with some clout and resources decided to check out our new Commander in Chief, he would not stand up to the investigation. What we have now is a "ram it down your throat" by force, heavy handed bunch of Chicago style gangster politicians controlling the White House. Our Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is out of touch and out of control. Our Attorney General is making a mockery of our legal system. Our Secretary of State is an abysmal embarrassment. We have no foreign policy, and our National Security has been severely weakened. Most of our Democrat Representatives and Senators, along with weak kneed Republicans, are marching in lock step with the bullies. The American voting public is being labeled with terms like radical, racist, and trouble maker, while the real radicals, racists, and trouble makers occupy the highest offices in our land.

Push back America. We have always fought our way out when we were pushed into a corner.

"Always remember that you are Americans, and it is your birthright to dream great dreams in this sweet and blessed land, truly the greatest, freest, strongest nation on Earth."----Ronald Reagan
