I am an old guy and I can remember the following things, can you ?  [doubt it]

We could swim in the local lake at a public access point where there were no lifeguards and it was common knowledge that you did so at your own risk.

Today the signs say no swimming Trespasser will be arrested and they enforce the rules!

When I was a Senior in High school [mid 1960's] I carried a Rifle to school on the school bus along with 100 rounds of ammo for it [ an M1 Garand /30/06 ] I was on the rifle team of my school and a lot of schools had rifle teams. 

Today can you imagine the result?  who did this and why did we let them?

I remember my first time tiding on a commercial jet airliner and at the airport there were no x-ray machines or TSA pat downs and I got on the plane with my pocket knife and my rifle was checked through with out any questions at all, I was going hunting out west with my Dad.

Today it is a major undertaking and red tape is everywhere.

in 1968 we were just beginning to really loose our freedom, today in 2012 we are 90% there! 

I wonder if we can roll back the intrusiveness of our government and restore at least some of that freedom or are we done with the grand experiment  began in 1776 ? 

There are just 2 laws I would like to see revoked this presidential term

1, The law forcing employers to withhold your taxes on your income! 

What would that do?  Well if every one had to write a check every quarter like business does I do believe that taxes on income would end!

2, The Patriot act and all its parts!

A free people are free, are you free or are your chains just not binding you personally ?

  • Howdy.

    we got to where were at today by people ALLOWING those CHEAP SUITED PUKING BUZZARDS people elected to office to SAFE GUARD OUR LIBERTIES AND FREEDOMS, but instead they TURNED OUR LIBERTIES AND FREEDOMS INTO UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS OF PERMISSION. we DIDN'T lose them they were LEGISLATED AWAY through their POLITICAL CORRECT LEGISLATION AND CREATING HATE CRIMES SPEECH, and OTHER UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS

    and ALL of it comes from the 10 PLANKS OF COMMUNISM IN HOW TO TAKE OVER A COUNTRY.

    and to TOP it off they elected an ILLEGAL MUSLIM USURPER NOT PROPERLY VETTED so as far as i am concerned they ALL CREATED TREASON.

    Semper Fi.

  • One word says it all 'Liberalism'- Political Correctness . The massive influx of illegals, plus the overall dumbing down of American society with the lowering of Standards pretty much says it all.  You may want to throw in there Moral decay as well .How else could you explain voting a unknown Marxist with No experince into the White House ????

  • How did we go from total liberty and rule over our government to having to crawl to Big Brother for permission to do anything?  NWO liberalism, that's how.  Here is a re-post of a letter I sent to 2 papers today:

    The biggest news out of Tampa this week concerns the new rule changes that were made over the loud objections of delegates  and other attendees.   With these new changes it will be virtually impossible  for a Ron Paul, Tea Party, grass roots or populist candidate to ever be nominated for president.  These new rules give complete control  of delegates to the candidate chosen by the party elite in early primaries.  Since the party has been unsuccessful at usurping the Tea Party Moment, the establishment has settled for simply eradicating its influence from their procedure.  Any arguments that the Republican Party is the party of the common working American have been put to rest.  Clearly, the time has come for a viable third party and we have four years to get one up and running.

  • The only way back is to rid the U.S.A. of communists, marxists, progressives and liberals.
