  • What Sarah Said: Fri at 9:45am

    Union Brothers and Sisters:
    Your Leadership Doesn’t Get It – You Deserve Better

    In the latest to come out of D.C.’s backroom health care deals, President Obama yesterday cut a doozy of a deal with labor union bosses. The fed’s health care plan must be so bad that even union bosses had to go to D.C. to say they wanted out. So... to keep their support for a flawed plan they got an exemption to provisions in the deal that others did not. Small business owners, our families running America’s mom & pops, did not get this deal. Ask yourself: why did union bosses get special treatment? And when did our country’s unions get on the wrong track with moves like this that hurt their good members and put them in such a bad light?

    Good hard-working, pro-free-market, pro-America union members should join in opposition to their union bosses’ sweetheart deal. Coming from a union background and living in a world with many union memberships among my family and friends, I know that average members will be embarrassed by their bosses’ deal, which basically only delays the heavy tax on their health care plans until 2018 and in the meantime unfairly leaves many fellow Americans in a much less “enviable” position.

    Union members don’t want to stick it to non-union colleagues in the private and public sector. Their union leadership is not helping them in the long run, they’re certainly not helping the rest of America, and unfortunately some union bosses are making all union members look bad, selfish, and anti-business with this Big Government backroom deal.

    I know that ordinary union members don’t want to hurt their fellow Americans, just as ordinary Nebraskans didn’t want to stick it to the rest of the country with a sweetheart deal on Medicaid subsidies. I urge union members to make their voices heard. Please, call your leadership – don’t put up with these special-interest politics – tell them to fight for all Americans who want common sense health care reform, not this flawed boondoggle.

  • Call The Democratic Party's Bluff On Refusing To Seat Scott Brown

    The Democrats have come up with a plan to nullify temporarily the Massachusetts voters in the Senate special election on January 19, if Scott Brown wins.

    As reported by the Boston Herald, interim Senator Paul Kirk is on record that he will vote for the Senate health care bill even if Brown wins the election if the vote takes place before Brown is sworn in. Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin has stated that the certification of the election result will be delayed at least until February 20, giving the Democrats a full month after the election to push through the health care bill without Brown being able to join a filibuster.

    This scheme does not depend on the usual delay, for example, where there is a slight margin of victory in the hundreds of votes out of millions cast, where a recount and ballot challenges take time. The Democratic scheme will delay Brown's certification even if Brown is the clear winner.

    Voters need to call the Democrats' bluff. The deliberate delay of Brown's certification in order to push through the health care bill will cause a political explosion unlike anything we have seen before.

    There are certain red lines which no one has crossed before. And refusing to seat a duly elected Senator, for the sole purpose of excluding that Senator from voting on a particular piece of legislation, crosses that line.

    The Democratic Party are once again threatening to break the democratic links which bind us as a nation. The electoral outrage at such a tactic will be generational, and the Democratic leadership in Washington knows it.

    If on the day of the health care vote, the duly elected Scott Brown shows up at the Senate to claim his seat for the vote, will Harry Reid instruct the Capitol Police to bar Brown from the chamber and from casting his vote? Will that be the legacy of health care "reform"?

    The voters of Massachusetts need to call the Democrats bluff on this.

    The Democrats have shown complete contempt for the Massachusetts voters, now it is time for the Massachusetts voters to show contempt for the Democrats who have hatched this scheme.

    How much more are we going to take? The snooze alarm has be reset to many times... It is time to standup and be heard... The Silent Majority can sleep no longer!
  • The Constitution Does Not Enforce Itself

    Our Founding Fathers secured for us a land of freedom and opportunity that has been the envy of the entire world whether they want to admit this fact or not. Our Founding Fathers sought to protect those freedoms and opportunities through our Constitution. But the Constitution is not of itself the protection. The Constitution only provides each of us with the means to protect ourselves.

    It is becoming ever more apparent that the federal government is completely out of touch with those they are supposed to be serving. Yet the Constitution provides to each of us, the beneficiaries of the greatest system of government the world has ever known, a way to defend our rights. This defense is to be found in our Tenth Amendment. And while Amendment Ten has not stopped the power grab from all branches of the federal government, it does provide both the framework and the justification for “We the People” to maintain and defend our portion of power in our political system.

    You have to understand that power is a finite resource, meaning that as one group gains power, it must be relinquished by another group, in this case “We the People”. Leave there be no doubt; a lot of laws passed in the past One Hundred years have been about power. More to the point, it is about power that is going from “We the People” to the Federal Government.

    Therefore, it is not enough to be against Healthcare Reform;
    Therefore, it is not enough to be against Cap and Trade;
    Therefore, it is not enough to be against the bailouts, against TARP, against the Patriot Act, against No Child Left behind.

    It is not enough to oppose activist judges legislating from the bench, or executive orders, or bureaucratic regulations or any other “laws” without the understanding that these “laws” were not passed in a legislative branch of Government as provided for in our Constitution, nor were they passed to serve in the best interests of the people of our Nation. You must realize that it is really about power and you have to recognize that this power has been taken from each of us, “We the People”.
    How? Through apathy, indifference, and willful ignorance the silent majority has allowed it to be taken. This brings us to the power, provided to each of us as citizens, contained in the Tenth Amendment and Nullification.

    Nullification simply stated says that the States entered into a contract known as the Constitution where the Federal Government was granted specific powers, most of which are found in Article One, Section Eight. The states had not only a right, but an obligation to interpose or nullify laws passed by the Federal Government that go beyond those powers and infringe upon the rights of “We the People”. This responsibility is clearly spelled out by the Tenth Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    It only makes sense that the states must have some recourse available to them should the Federal Government overstep its authority and infringe upon the liberty of “We the People”. Does this sound crazy? Here are a few notes regarding the safeguard from the founders before the Constitution was ratified.

    “It may safely be received as an axiom in our political system, that the State governments will, in all possible contingencies, afford complete security against invasions of the public liberty by the national authority.” Alexander Hamilton Federalist Papers #28

    “The local or municipal authorities form distinct and independent portions of the supremacy, no more subject, within their respective spheres, to the general authority then the general authority is subject to them, within its own sphere.” James Madison Federalist Papers #39

    “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” James Madison Federalist Papers #45

    “Hence, a double security arises to the rights of the people. The different governments will control each other; at the same time that each will be controlled by itself.” James Madison Federalist Papers #51

    “We may safely rely on the disposition of the state legislatures to erect barriers against the encroachments of the national authority.” Alexander Hamilton Federalist Papers #85

    The Federalist papers were never meant to define the Constitution; rather as a method of selling it to the general public to get it ratified. The former colonist did not want to trade a despotic centralized Government across the ocean for one on their own continent. Proof is self evident by the fact that they had to promise that a bill of rights would be added to get it ratified.

    The Doctrine of Nullification was first introduced in 1798 in the Kentucky Resolution, written by Thomas Jefferson, and the Virginia resolution, written by James Madison. These were in response to the “Alien and Sedition Acts”. I urge you to read these resolutions for yourself. The “Alien and Sedition Acts”, among other things, made it illegal to criticize the Government. This doctrine was later adopted by Massachusetts and Wisconsin to nullify parts of the “Fugitive Slave Act”, and by South Carolina to nullify a tariff they believed harmful to their state economy, and by the New England states in response to embargos.

    ‘What about the “Supremacy clause”?’ The one that states the Federal Government is the Supreme law of the land.

    1997 “Mack/Printz vs. the US” Where two County Sheriffs sued the Federal Government over the Brady Bill. This was a law that forced county Sheriffs to run background checks on their citizens who bought handguns at the expense of the county, and any sheriff who did not comply with this law would be subject to arrest. These sheriffs argued that this law violated the Tenth Amendment. This case was heard and ultimately won before the Supreme Court.

    Justice Scalia writes for the majority, “… the Constitution’s conferral upon Congress of not all governmental powers, but only discreet, enumerated ones.” And in a direct challenge to this interpretation of the Supremacy clause, he writes, “It is incontestable that the Constitution established a system of dual sovereignty”. He also states, “This separation of the two spheres is one of the Constitution’s structural protections of liberty. Just as the separation and independence of the coordinate branches of the federal government serve to prevent the accumulation of excessive power in any one branch, a healthy balance of power between the States and the Federal Government will reduce the risk of tyranny and abuse from either front.”

    But there is really a supremacy clause, and it states:
    “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land.” This clearly states the Constitution and laws that carry out, follow and continue the Constitution are the Supreme Law of the land.

    How about the Real ID Act, whereby the States had until May of 2008 to issue everyone of its citizens a national ID card complete with biometrics, resulting in the complete loss of privacy from the state. States who failed to comply by the deadline would see its citizens loose the ability to board an airplane or enter a federal building. It has been over a year since that deadline has passed. Do any of you have a “Real ID”? How many of you have entered a federal building or boarded an airplane in the last year? Do you know why? Because the states said no!

    This is a real and viable strategy, not only secure the freedoms that are guaranteed to each of us by our Constitution, but to take back the power that has always been our God-given natural rights?
    First, we must redirect the efforts from the Federal officeholders who not only have ignored us, but hold us in contempt! And direct that energy towards the State Legislators. These people live here in our communities with us and are much less insulated from “We the People”.

    We must get them to introduce and pass key laws including: nullifying both a National Healthcare Act and Cap and Trade that will be the result of this out-of-control spending. Furthermore, we should follow the lead of Tennessee whose legislators are introducing a bill which creates an escrow account whereby legal federal taxes are collected and held by the states as protection against federal backlash against our nullification efforts.

    At some point as “We the People” work to make the Constitution relevant again, you will begin to hear the progressives and their puppets use the term “General Welfare Clause”

    The General Welfare Clause has been interpreted by those favoring a strong central government to mean that as long as the law was meant to be in the “general welfare” of the union, congress has the authority to pass it. The argument against this is the Virginia Plan, which was introduced by Madison at the Constitutional Convention. This plan would have created a National Government that gave the central government the authority to do anything it wanted. It is important to remember this plan was rejected by the delegation, and more importantly, it was never ratified by “We the People”.

    James Madison, considered the ‘Father of the Constitution’ and the author of the defeated Virginia Plan, stated the following about this interpretation of the “General Welfare Clause”.

    “Such a view of the Constitution would have the effect of giving to Congress a general power of legislation instead of the defined and limited one hitherto understood to belong to them.” Think on that statement a second. Now allow me to further quote James Madison. “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.”

    This should aid in explaining where we are today and how we got here, and hopefully what we need to do next.

    Will it be easy? No. Every step of the way not only will enemies of Freedom tells us this won’t work, but even our friends, who should be on our side, will say it is impossible. The Central Government is too big and powerful to take on!

    Will there be risk? Yes. We will be taking on the most powerful “empire” in the world today, and you can be sure that they will not give up all this power without a fight. But I ask you to consider what dangers our Founding Fathers faced, surely this pales in comparison.

    I think Samuel Adams said it best when he said this, “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better then the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

    Remember:
    It is about your future,
    It is about your children’s future
    It is about your grandchildren’s future,
    It is about control,
    It is about power,
    It is especially about socialism, and finally
    It is about time that people began standing up for themselves and do more then just complain to our government for better treatment. Begin to assert the power that is our god given birth right as American citizens…

  • An Eerie Lesson From History... Does This Sound Familiar Today?

    Don't Cry For Me, America

    In the early 20th century, Argentina was one of the richest countries in the world. While Great Britain's maritime power and its far flung empire had propelled it to a dominant position among the world's industrialized nations, only the United States challenged Argentina for the position of the world's second most powerful economy.

    It was blessed with abundant agriculture, vast swaths of rich farmland laced with navigable rivers and an accessible port system. Its level of industrialization was higher than many European countries: railroads, automobiles and telephones were commonplace.

    In 1916, a new president was elected. Hipólito Irigoyen had formed a party called The Radicals under the banner of "fundamental change" with an appeal to the middle class.
    Among Irigoyen's changes: mandatory pension insurance, mandatory health insurance, and support for low-income housing construction to stimulate the economy. Put simply, the state assumed economic control of a vast swath of the country's operations and began assessing new payroll taxes to fund its efforts.

    With an increasing flow of funds into these entitlement programs, the government's payouts soon became overly generous. Before long its outlays surpassed the value of the taxpayers' contributions. Put simply, it quickly became under-funded, much like the United States' Social Security and Medicare programs.

    The death knell for the Argentine economy, however, came with the election of Juan Perón. Perón had a fascist and corporatist upbringing; he and his charismatic wife aimed their populist rhetoric at the nation's rich.

    This targeted group "swiftly expanded to cover most of the propertied middle classes, who became an enemy to be defeated and humiliated."

    Under Perón, the size of government bureaucracies exploded through massive programs of social spending and by encouraging the growth of labor unions.

    High taxes and economic mismanagement took their inevitable toll even after Perón had been driven from office. But his populist rhetoric and "contempt for economic realities" lived on. Argentina's federal government continued to spend far beyond its means.

    Hyperinflation exploded in 1989, the final stage of a process characterized by "industrial protectionism, redistribution of income based on increased wages, and growing state intervention in the economy."
    The Argentinean government's practice of printing money to pay off its public debts had crushed the economy. Inflation hit 3000%, reminiscent of the Weimar Republic. Food riots were rampant; stores were looted; the country descended into chaos.

    And by 1994, Argentina's public pensions - the equivalent of Social Security - had imploded. The payroll tax had increased from 5% to 26%, but it wasn't enough. In addition, Argentina had implemented a value-added tax (VAT), new income taxes, a personal tax on wealth, and additional revenues based upon the sale of public enterprises. These crushed the private sector, further damaging the economy.
    A government controlled "privatization" effort to rescue seniors' pensions was attempted. But, by 2001, those funds had also been raided by the government, the monies replaced by Argentina's defaulted government bonds.

    By 2002, ".government fiscal irresponsibility. induced a national economic crisis as severe as America's Great Depression."


    In 1902 Argentina was one of the world's richest countries. Little more than a hundred years later, it is poverty stricken, struggling to meet its debt obligations amidst a drought.

    We've seen this movie before. The government’s populist plans can't possibly work, because government bankrupts everything it touches. History teaches us that Health Care Reform in its current form and unfunded entitlement programs will be utter, complete disasters.

    Today's government is guilty of enslaving future generations to poverty and misery.

  • Take A Look At This And Remember It At Election Time - November 2010...

    This past year the U.S. House & Senate voted themselves both a $4,700 and a $5,300 raise.

    1. They voted against giving each of us a Social Security Cost Of Living (COLA) raise for both 2010 and 2011.

    2. Your Medicaid premiums will go up $285.60 each year for the 2 years and you will not get the 3% COLA = $660/yr. Your total 2 year loss and cost is
    -$1,600 or -$3,200 for husband and wife.

    3. Over the same 2 yrs each member of our Congress and Senate will receive an additional $10,000!

    4. Do you feel cheated?

    5. Will the government cover the increase in the cost of drugs - doctor fees - local taxes - food, etc.? The answer is simply, NO . They have given themselves a raise and better benefits. Do you really believe that they care about you?
    We have never done anything about it in the past.
    They obviously believe that we are too stupid or simply don't care.

    6. Do you really think that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barnie, et al, care about us?
    Let’s send them a message----YOU'RE FIRED!
    IN 2010 WE WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO GET RID OF THE SITTING CONGRESS:
    Up to 1/3 OF THE SENATE, AND 100% OF THE HOUSE.

    MAKE SURE YOU'RE STILL MAD AS HELL IN NOVEMBER 2010.

    It is ok to repost this to your sphere of influence if you are finally tired of the abuse.

    Maybe it's time for the........
    28th Amendment

    "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives,
    -and-
    Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or
    Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the
    United States."

    Let's get this passed around, folks - these people in Washington have brought this upon themselves!!! It's time for retribution. Let's take back America.

    If you don't forward this to all your friends you're just part of the bigger problem National Apathy.
