  • AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FELLOW CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    The grassroots organization American Tea Party has been active for a few years now, but yesterday's Massachusetts victory shall go down in history as one of its defining moments. As the conservative Massachusetts constituency, in a historical endeavor, via voting booths, to send an unmistakable message of dissention against liberal agendas; partisans across out great nation assisted, prayed, and watched in apprehension. This election was to be a defining moment of choice in the road of our nation’s destiny.

    Today's retort displays a clear dichotomy of the mind set between the governed, and the governing.

    From much of our nation’s liberal population, we are seeing today, animosity, denial, blame laying and the far left scrambling in an attempt to somehow rescue their dreams of instilling fascism and socialism into our nation’s and for that matter the world’s future. Narcissism, messianic complexes, delusions of power, greed, and outright corruption, has filled the hearts of our ever increasing radical population. Regardless of facts, the voices of the overwhelming conservative and moderate majority, the Constitution, nor oaths of office, their response to an undeniable referendum upon their undermining policies is,..."We must fight harder, and we must do whatever it takes, to achieve our goals."

    My fellow conservative and moderate Americans, I appeal to your patriotic, and God given sensibilities; facts, truth, nor principle are of any concern to this fascist and socialist segment of our population. They will not allow themselves to be convinced, enlightened, nor allow their mindset to be altered in any way to provide democratic, constructive leadership, at any level, within our nation. They will only continue to lower any moral standard necessary to insure the success of the path course they've chosen for us. They have forsaken the clarity of our Founding Fathers and generations from our past for the illusion they are attempting to force upon us today. Henceforth, in all upcoming elections there must be an outpouring of our convictions; they must be defeated and removed from any vestige of power or authority, regardless of level, of control or influence.

    Massachusetts has now revealed the strength , as well as the resolve, of "We the People" heralding in a unified voice, and providing us with a clearly defined path to our and our nation’s future. They have sparked hope and instilled a new found resolve into already weary patriot’s hearts that have fought so tirelessly to return our nation to a path of sensibility and righteousness. It is a solemn responsibility that each of us carries that must be undertaken by all who love this nations in which we live.

    THE SILENT MAJORITY HAS BEGUN TO AWAKEN. IT IS NOW TIME FOR ALL AMERICANS TO STAND UP AND DEMAND TO BE HEARD!

    God bless our Great Nation and continue to guide each of us to the righteous victory which is ours.

  • THIS IS HOW WE CAN FIX CONGRESS!!!!!
    Send this to virtually everybody on your e-mail list and that includes conservatives, liberals, and everybody in between. This is the proposed "Congressional Reform Act of 2010". It would contain eight provisions, all of which would probably be strongly endorsed by those who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    Congress has the lowest approval of any entity in Government, the entity that represents us.
    We need to get a Senator to introduce this bill in the US Senate and a Representative to introduce a similar bill in the US House.

    These people will become American hero's.. Please send any ideas on how to get this done.

    Thanks,

    A Fellow American

  • Government Healthcare Protection Or Oppression And Profits


    I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Healthcare Choices Act of 2009. I have studied it with particular emphasis from my areas of expertise - civil and constitutional law. I found that I had concerns that points of the proposed law that were being discussed were unconstitutional. What I discovered was far worse than what I was hearing or expecting.

    First of all, much of what has been stated about the law and its implications is, in fact, true, despite what the Democrats and the mainstream media are saying. The proposed law does, in fact, provide for rationing of healthcare, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free healthcare for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and very likely forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

    The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business which will put everyone into a government run system. All decisions regarding personal healthcare will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats and most of them will not be healthcare professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the federal government.

    However, as menacing as all of that appears, it only scratches the surface. The fact is, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable healthcare choices. Instead, it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the executive branch of government that has ever transpired, or ever been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed and/or severely mitigated.

    The first casualty will be the balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of our Government which is vital to maintaining checks and balances within our Government. Congress will be transferring to the Obama administration authority in numerous areas over the lives of the American citizenry and the businesses which they own. Congress does not have any authority to legislate in most of those areas. I personally challenge anyone to read the text of the U. S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate healthcare.

    This legislation also provides for access by the appointees of the Obama administration of all of your personal healthcare information, your personal financial information, and information of your employer, physician, as well as hospitals. All of this is in direct violation of the specific provisions as set forth in the 4th Amendment to the Constitution protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about your right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

    If you should decide not to carry healthcare insurance or if you have private insurance that is not deemed “acceptable” to the “Health Choices Administrator” appointed by Obama, there will be tax imposed upon you for either of these failures. It is referred to as a “tax” instead of a fine because of its intent to avoid application of the Due Process Clause of the 5th Amendment. However, this does not work as there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the “due process of law” being applied.

    So, there are three amendments that the current administration hates so much in the Bill of Rights that are effectively nullified through implementation of this law. It does not stop there however. The 9th Amendment which provides: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;” the 10th Amendment states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution nor prohibited by it to the states, are preserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” Under the provisions of this piece of congressional legislation, neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas once this legislation is passed.

    I could write a great deal more about this legislation, but I think you should be getting the idea. This is not about healthcare; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires that members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation” to support the Constitution. If I was a member of Congress, I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling that I was violating that sacred oath. If I voted for it disregarding this oath, I would hope the American people would hold me fully accountable.

    The Constitution does not provide Congress with the power to mandate that Americans purchase health insurance. Congress must be able to point to at least one of its powers listed in the Constitution as the basis of any legislation which it passes. None of those powers justifies the individual insurance mandate. Congress’s power to tax and spend does not apply because the mandate neither taxes nor spends.

    Another constitutional defect of the Reid Bill passed in the Senate involves the backroom deals which Harry Reid made to secure the votes of individual senators. A number of those deals do involve spending programs because they waive certain states’ obligation to contribute to the Medicaid program. This selective spending targeted at certain states clearly runs afoul of the General Welfare Clause. Yet another constitutional defect contained in this legislation, is its command that states establish such things as benefit exchanges, which will consequently require state legislation and regulation. As written, this is not a condition for receiving federal funds, and would still leave some kind of choice to the states. The legislation would mandate states to establish these exchanges or states that the Secretary of Health & Human Services is to do it for them. It renders states little more than subdivisions of the federal government. This violates the letter, the spirit, and the interpretation of our federal/state form of government as established in our Constitution.

    All such pronouncements are, for the time being, opinion, whether some aspects of healthcare reform legislation are indeed unconstitutional, is an issue that will only be resolved if and when cases are brought challenging them before the Courts of our Nation.

    Further, those in congress who are protecting the insurance industry from government intrusion are doing a great job of protecting their campaign contributions. They have masterfully so complicated the healthcare debate that many Americans have been completely blinded to what should be clearly obvious. There's only one issue in this debate, whether or not we want to entrust the healthcare of our families to an entity whose only goal is to provide service or one that's in the business solely to make as much profit as humanly possible. The federal government, simply put, has recognized the profitability of the healthcare industry and wants to cut itself in on all or least a large portion of that profitability.

    In order to see through the smoke and mirrors of this debate we need ask ourselves only a few basic questions. First, do we really believe that the insurance industry is giving politicians $1.3 million a day just so they can protect our well being? Second, how have the insurance companies become so rich that they can afford to give away that much money? Third, if they're doing such a good job of looking after our interest, why do they fear that a public option will lead to a government takeover of the industry?

    And finally, what's so bad about government protected healthcare anyway? The government protects us with the police department, the fire department, the military, social security, and Medicare. So why do we allow these things to be run by government? What do they have in common? The answer to this question is very simple. They are all services that are far too essential to our wellbeing to entrust to those whose single motive, and sole reason for being, is to produce a profit.

    If you really think about it, the so-called insurance industry is not an industry at all. An industry produces products. The insurance business produces nothing. It is comprised of Wall Street speculators who take your money with the promise that they'll protect you from potential financial ruin. Then if something unforeseen does occur, they spend much of that money attempting to find loopholes to get out of honoring their agreement with you.

    Their entire business model is based on the proposition that they can get more money out of you than they will have to pay back. So they are not in the business of providing you with a service. On the contrary, they’re in the business of taking your money, while providing you with as little service as possible. That's how they make huge profits.

    Now, it is the current administration’s contention that too many Americans are being denied services, and as a result, they're dying or losing everything they own just so these speculators can make a profit. The current administration states that they want to bring that to an end.

    In response, the politicians who the insurance companies are paying to deceive you are screaming. Since they obviously don't have truth on their side, they have taken to lying to the American people.
    If your representative is among them, instead of representing your interest, they’re being paid by the insurance companies to lobby against you. They are trying to convince you that it is a bad thing for you to have the choice of a public option that would protect you and your family from loss of coverage if you're laid off from your job, or having your insurance cancelled if a member of your family contracts a disease that the private insurance companies deem so expensive to treat that it cuts into their profits. In short, they are placing their seat in congress before the welfare of your family.

    In addition, they always conveniently fail to mention that with your current healthcare you have a businessman, who's out to make a profit, between you and your doctor. You're rarely aware of what goes on between your doctor and your current insurance company, because your doctor simply won't prescribe a treatment that he knows the insurance company will not cover. But how many times have you gone to the pharmacy and had a generic drug suggested because your insurance will not cover the drug that the doctor originally prescribed, and wanted you to have?

    We must not forget that the infamous AIG is an insurance company. It was suppose to be insuring Wall Street against investment losses, and you see what happened there - AIG was so greedy for profits and paid so little attention to the precarious condition of its customers, that when Wall Street collapsed and AIG's customers came to it to cover the losses that they'd paid billions of dollars to insure, AIG simply said, "Sorry, we can't help you with this matter."

    Thus, if the crooks on Wall Street can't trust the insurance companies, the average American family does not stand a chance. Even though AIG was founded, appropriately enough, in Shanghai, China, and was doing business and spreading its money all over the world, when it found itself in trouble it ran back to the United States to pick American taxpayers pockets, in an effort to get back on its feet.

    And that's not the worst of it. Once the current administration did agree to help them to get back on their feet, they took much of our hard earned tax money (while we were losing our homes and jobs) and used it to wine and dine company bigwigs at plush resorts, and pass out multi-million dollar bonuses to the very people who ran the company into the ground.

    Now, these are the people that many of your representatives want to protect from a government takeover, never mind what is in the best interest of your family. These very same people who have already robbed you of your tax dollars, that your representative want to see standing between you and your doctor, with calculator in hand. Of course he does, because the government is not going to contribute to his campaign.

    So if your representative comes to you during this break and tries to fill you with this nonsense, you should respond with just one sentence - "You are out of here in the very next election." You'd be entirely justified, since his support of the insurance lobby is irrefutable evidence that what he sees as his vested interest is far removed from that of your own and your family.

    So is this legislation about oppression or profits or both? I will leave that choice to my readers… The one thing that remains clear, regardless of choice, is that it time for AMERICA TO STAND UP AND DEMAND TO BE HEARD!
  • The Obama Administration’s Strategy For Change In America

    The American electorate has watched in horror for over a year as the Obama administration has created unprecedented havoc and outrage throughout our nation.

    And yet, the actual result of 2009's non-stop crises has been not just the dramatic transfer of wealth and power away from citizens and small businesses and into the controlling hands of government, but also the beginnings of a profound transformation of America's basic economic and governmental system.

    Is it possible that the Obama administration is intentionally creating crises to facilitate the conversion of America into a socialist state? Many say that such a conclusion sounds like an absurd conspiracy theory.
    But for those who are knowledgeable about the modern history of the radical left, creating crises is simply another method of getting things done.

    Following the classic radical left strategy of the manufactured crisis, the Obama administration and Congress are creating crises in every area of life and policy.

    They are wreaking havoc throughout America's capitalist, free enterprise system by taking over major industries like automotive, banking and healthcare. And by multiplying the national debt so astronomically that the only possible way to pay it off is with a printing press. This action translates directly into the "grand theft" of Americans' hard earned wealth through major inflation.

    But it's not just the economy. The administration is also wreaking havoc on America's national security; prosecuting U.S. soldiers for being too rough with terrorists, but rewarding confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed with a civilian trial in New York City and affording him all the powerful legal rights of an American citizen. And by badmouthing and apologizing for America overseas and bowing before Muslim kings, while scandalously snubbing leaders of America's few remaining allies such as the United Kingdom and Israel.

    They're creating crises in the nation's energy policy by stubbornly adhering to the controversial and now utterly discredited "global warming" theory and pursuing economically catastrophic legislation such as "Cap and Trade." They're creating havoc in education by putting radical homosexual activist Kevin Jennings, notorious for sexually corrupting children, in charge of the safety of the nation's public schools.

    In every area imaginable the Obama administration is busily engaged in undermining and destroying the nation's key institutions or as Obama euphemistically put it a few days before being elected president, "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America."

    For the last year the Obama administration has relentlessly hammered into our heads that America will self destruct economically if we don't solve our cataclysmic healthcare crisis. But in reality, there is no healthcare crisis. We have the best medical services delivery system in world history. What about the poor and uninsured? In America, you can be an escaped, convicted, illegal alien, child rapist but if you get hurt and go to a public hospital, you will by law be taken care of, completely and totally, whether you can afford to pay for it or not. That certainly is not a broken system; that's the most magnificent system in the world.

    Of course, the government could easily legislate into law a simple safety net to help the small percentage of American citizens who do not have health insurance but they have never been interested in that. They're interested only in creating the illusion of a systemic and fatal healthcare crisis as a means of forcing socialism, oppression and profits for the federal government down the throats of America’s citizenry.

    Manufacturing crises to force 'change' is how the radical left has operated for decades, and now that Obama, Pelosi and Reid are in power, fake crises and their terrible 'solutions' dominate life in America."
    Many Americans already are aware of what is happening in our nation, and are understandably horrified. For millions of outraged citizens, fighting back is what 2010 is all about."
    The one thing that remains clear is that it is time for AMERICA TO STAND UP AND DEMAND TO BE HEARD!
  • Bob - Thanks for this info. I agree the Union members need to standup for America, even if their Union Bosses don't.
