Pop Quiz: Do you know what a “Shared Responsibility Payment” is? It’s what the IRS is calling your Obamacare, individual mandate tax. Let that one sink in John Roberts. Meanwhile…
Let me start with this today. Hopefully you recognize from history (pre common core anyway):
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
WE THE PEOPLE do not establish or ordain universal healthcare, carbon emission limitations, illegal immigration, economic fairness, wealth redistribution, deficit spending or any of the other moral imperatives the democrats are ranting about these days. No, WE THE PEOPLE established a government of the people, by the people FOR the people. That has been perverse by todays liberal progressive to be a Government of the ELITE, for the ELITE to rule the people.
America is in a constitutional crisis as well as an economic crisis. The problem is not just Barack Obama. It is the entire Democrat party, which has been taken over by Marxists (that is a literal truth and not just hyperbole), and which caused and continues to perpetuate both crises.
The constitutional crisis is that President Obama will not follow the law. He regularly makes up the law rather than administers the law as written. He abuses the powers of his office, effectively seizing the power to rule by decree, announcing new laws or changes in the law that he has no power to make. This goes on almost daily now.
But worse is that the entire Democratic Party is supporting Obama in this effective coup d’état, with nary a peep of any protest regarding such presidential abuse of power from any Democrat quarters. Instead, it is clear that the Democratic Party embraces what Obama is doing, and would vigorously defend it if Republicans and conservatives ever managed to mount a serious challenge to this presidential abuse of office.
Sadly, it isn’t almost daily. It is daily. How many times has this Radical used the phrase “if Congress doesn’t act, I will.” Sorry Barry, rumor is you are a genius, attended ivy league schools and are a Constitution scholar. Even if two of the three are wrong (like illegal immigrants his academic record is undocumented) at some point you must have learned we have a system of government that provides checks and balances to PREVENT you from taking dictatorial actions. In fact, Congress was only given 2 year terms in office so they may be held MOST accountable to the people. Unlike the regulators you appoint that have no over sight, no accountability, Congress must face the voters. Details. Enter Mark Levin:
INTO THIS MAELSTROM of crisis and decline steps Mark Levin, with his new book The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic. The book presents a fundamental and comprehensive solution to both crises, restoring the originally intended Constitution providing for a limited federal government, which is the most consistent with restoring economic growth and prosperity.
Levin proposes to accomplish that with 11 Amendments to the Constitution, which he advances “not because I believe the Constitution, as originally structured is outdated and outmoded, thereby requiring modernization through amendments, but because of the opposite — that is, the necessity and urgency ofrestoring constitutional republicanism andpreserving the civil society from the growing authoritarianism of a federal Leviathan.”
Perfect! This is the debate we should be having. This is the dialogue we should be seeing play out in town halls. The Republicans continue to respond to the agenda set by the Democrats. Illegal immigration, economic fairness, gun control. Meanwhile, the Radical tyrant in the White House continues to rule by fiat, destroying your personal liberties. Some insights from our Found Fathers:
WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present King of Great-Britain is a History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
Deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed
Governments long established should not be changed for the light and transient Causes
They understood what Obama doesn’t. unprecedented is not a moral obligation to throw out centuries of rule of law. In fact, they recognized that TYRANNY is the precedent set by such actions. They risked their lives to escape it. We are giving it away at the ballot box.
I’ve already heard some politician speaking about blaming everyone one else… black unemployment, racism, low economic growth… Huh? There has been a black President for years??
Where is the inspiration?? I think Dr. King would give a speech today similar to his “Dimensions of a Complete Life” sermon (also known as the “Street Sweeper”) he gave in 1967. It’s remarkable. It’s uplifting. It’s inspirational. It’s breathtaking.
Give it a listen here.. well worth listening to it all. It’s only 3 minutes.
And when you discover what you will be in your life, set out to do it as if God Almighty called you at this particular moment in history to do it. Don’t just set out to do a good job. Set out to do such a good job that the living, the dead or the unborn couldn’t do it any better.
If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music, sweep streets like Leontyne Price sings before the Metropolitan Opera. Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say: Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well. If you can’t be a pine at the top of the hill, be a shrub in the valley. Be be the best little shrub on the side of the hill.
Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be a sun, be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.
I received this letter from Paul Ryan – we’re tight
In 4 days we’ll hit another crucial fundraising deadline, and we’ve just got to reach our goal. Every dollar we raise will help protect our House majority – and keep Nancy Pelosi out of the speaker’s chair.
A left-wing victory in 2014 is the last thing we need. Obamacare is a disaster. The economy is still stagnant. And the IRS scandal is eroding trust in the government.
Our House majority is all that stands in the way of President Obama’s big-government agenda. That’s why I’m asking for your support.
Will you please chip in $100, $50, $25 or whatever you can afford today to grow the majority in 2014?
Left-wing super PACs are already raising millions to take back the House. Your donation today will keep our movement strong.
Funny, I don’t recall you being in the press lately for vowing to defeat obamacare or prosecute the administration for the IRS, Benghazi, NSA or Fast & Furious scandals. I do recall you being in the press for being PRO amnesty to illegal immigrants. As such, all of my money is already dedicated to funding free college tuition and Obamacare for 10 million illegal immigrants. Sorry I can’t help.
The IRS scandal is eroding trust? Paul, the IRS scandal was a political party using the power of the government to intimidate and suppress political opposition. It was the worse abuse of power since Nixon. It has ties directly to the Administration. The only trust in Government that has been eroded is my ‘trust’ there are still checks and balances. Until you stop using Democratic talking points and start addressing the real issues you won’t get a nickel.
When will the these “Republican Leaders” learn. We, not the RINO’s, are the core and base of the party. They are letting the President, the damn President cast us as ‘extreme’. Arguably the most radical, partisan person to occupy the White House and they side with him time and time again. Make no mistake, turning a blind eye – not fighting back – is siding with him. See MOCGATORS post about the 33 ObamaEconomy stats. Are any of those the items we are discussing? No. Obama would have prosecuted a corporate CEO for any one of those. We re-elected him. The Democrats have us chasing immigration reform, gay marriage, school lunch programs and solar power. They have Chris Christie taking pot shots at Ted Cruz. Paul Ryan in town halls explaining why ignoring our immigration laws is a good thing. No Paul, you can’t count on my support.
That’s the problem. They have taken our support for granted. Two Presidential election cycles we held our noses and got behind RINO’s. No more.
The left is about celebrity. They love their candidates blindly. Bill, Hillary, Barry – they can do no wrong, ever. Conservatives on the other hand love their ideals, their principles. Ryan and Christie have miscalculated if they believe star power is going to get them the support of the GOP base.
Liberals will do whatever it takes to protect the illusion their model works and keep their union donors employed – even if that means sacrificing your children to do it:
The proper response to any liberal who claims to be “pro-choice” is to laugh at them. They’re not in favor of people “choosing” anything, especially when those choices threaten the Left’s power structure. We might be allowed some modest latitude within a narrow range of options the State has prepared for us… but true, unbounded choice and its consequences are not permitted. Liberals don’t think the Little People can be trusted with that kind of power. Who knows what they might do with it?
The Wall Street Journal finds it bitterly ironic that Attorney General Eric Holder is nailing the doors of failing public schools in Louisiana shut, trapping the kids inside, on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech:
Late last week, Justice asked a federal court to stop 34 school districts in the Pelican State from handing out private-school vouchers so kids can escape failing public schools. Mr. Holder’s lawyers claim the voucher program appears “to impede the desegregation progress” required under federal law. Justice provides little evidence to support this claim, but there couldn’t be a clearer expression of how the civil-rights establishment is locked in a 1950s time warp.
Passed in 2012, Louisiana’s state-wide program guarantees a voucher to students from families with incomes below 250% of poverty and who attend schools graded C or below. The point is to let kids escape the segregation of failed schools, and about 90% of the beneficiaries are black.
And we all HAVE to pay for their housing, food, healthcare….
According to the Media, President Obama and the slick-haired Al Sharpton, we white devils are supposed to feel very sorry for the plight of the black teen.
Well, homeslice, it goes something like this: For us to give a crap about your below-par existence we’d like to hear less and less about…
– Your ghastly grades in school
– Your ridiculous dropout rates
– Your colossal out of wedlock birthrates
– Your embracing of a musical culture that celebrates the shooting of cops and doing filthy, vile things to someone’s daughter
– Your love affair with drugs and alcohol
– Your #hatethem tweets aimed at white people
– Your flash mobbing and robbing places and people
– Your audacity to blame everybody and their dog for your odious behavior
– And your ginormous, misplaced racial chip on your shoulder
Yes, if you could/would chill on some of that stuff, well … That’d be great. That would make us crackers think, “Hey, maybe you’re serious about getting out of the ditch you’re in.”
Yes, the brutal murder of someone’s grandpa and the senseless slaying of someone’s son by black thugs this past week do nothing but reinforce what the FBI National Crime Victimization Survey concluded, namely, that young black males are seven times more likely to commit murder than people of other races.
So, young black thugs, if you’d like us to empathize, trust and help you with a hand-up, howzabout cease and desist with the inhumane behavior, huh? Until then, we’ll be suspicious of young black teens, traveling in groups, taking an unusual interest in our person, especially if they’re dressed like gangbangers and are acting suspiciously.
Call us weird.
An Epic Fail….. But nobody seems to care. That’s worse than the actual disaster that is Obama’s Junta.
#17 At this point, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in our history. That number has risen by 57 percent since the 2006-2007 school year.
Bush Sr.: 11.3
Bush Jr.: 10.8
#27 According to the Survey of Income and Program Participation conducted by the U.S. Census, well over 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program run by the federal government.
#33 When you break it down, the amount of new debt accumulated by the U.S. government during Obama’s first term comes to approximately $50,521 for every single household in the United States. Are you able to pay your share?
