This organization is like an infestation of cockroaches. Just when you think you are rid of them, they reappear and begin infesting all over again!

Remember when the story broke that ACORN was helping two individuals commit tax fraud and were helping set up a prostitution ring employing minors? This happened in several different ACORN offices across the United States.

This promoted some Congressional disapproval and forced them to banish ACORN funding. What Congress forgot to mention was that their funding ban expires today! As of tomorrow, ACORN is once again eligible to apply for and receive Federal dollars for their organization.

No doubt the leaders at ACORN will try and take full advantage of this “loophole” and apply and probably get more taxpayer money. Don’t let this happen.

Action To Take
Remind you representatives in Congress that ACORN is being investigated by the Attorney General in Louisiana. Ask them why Attorney General Eric Holder is NOT doing so also! Remind them that they should NOT approve any NEW funding to this organization until ACORN absolves the charges of election fraud and criminal activities.

DNC Disrespects the American Flag!

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) desecrates the American flag in a commercial. Our message to the DNC: GO SCREW!

Here is their video:

Flag video

Is This What You Want?
Is this the type of video you want to see from ANY political party? This insults the American flag. If this video was produced by the Republican party it would be just as disgusting and disrespectful.

Action To Take
Demand an apology form the DNC. Suggest that they use better taste for their commercials.

ObamaCare’s Death Panels

Today’s thread quotes an opinion held by Robert Reich. He is a professor at the University of California and held the position of Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton’s administration.

He is a typical Progressive political thinker, like President Obama, and Hillary Clinton. Here’s what he had to say about healthcare: “…we are going to have to, if you are very old, we’re not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It’s too expensive! So we’re going to let you die.”

Nice! This DOES support the idea that we are going to throw “grandma” under the bus after all. At least Reich has the guts to say it out loud and mean it!

All the current legislation contains some funding measures that eliminates Medicare funding in order to pay for the new entitlements being added at the other end of the plan. This is a polite way of letting seniors die. Consequently someone will have to make those decisions on who lives and who dies. Who receives the expensive treatments – or not? Call it whatever you want, but that’s a Death Panel!

Why screw seniors after they have paid into the system? Why change the whole system just to add under 15 Million new recipients? Why take control of the whole medical system in the United States? How are we going to REALLY pay for all of it? Why is Congress making medical decisions for all of us? Are they even remotely qualified? How can we add that many more new patients and not add new doctors or nurses? Won’t this create shortages? Won’t the shortages mandate rationing? Doesn’t ANYONE see this logic? Has anyone looked at the total failure of the government controlled healthcare system in Massachusetts? Do we want this to be our model?

Congress is blindly marching forward as if Americans have expressed their approval on their work. Polls indicate that over half do NOT favor any government controlled healthcare. In spite of this, Congress continues working on it? Why is this? Why does Congress want to control 1/6 of our economy? Will they be able to actually improve the service and treatments we get now?

This is NOT a crisis. Congress is moving quickly because they know that the mid-term elections may have a serious impact on their control in the House of Representatives and the US Senate. The sooner they pass something - the better. They can add to it later, like they always do – just like every other government controlled program. Their current estimates are predictably low. Is this what Americans want?

Voting Types/Political Spectrum

OK so there’s been a lot of names dropped regarding various groups here in the United States. As you know voters have been called many names based on the support or opposition to the current administration.

Today we take a brief and simple look at voting types. Here is a diagram to illustrate:

A Libertarian believes that an individual has the right to act according to their own will. The less government control over their lives – the better. Government action with the individual should be consensual. People have absolute powers over their own lives. They should be free to do whatever they want to do provided they allow others the same liberty. So if they want to smoke pot, they can.

Liberals main target is towards the development of individual freedom. Liberalism has the basic belief in human goodness and in human rationality. It assumes that people being rational, have the ability to recognize problems and solve them achieving a systematic improvement in the human condition. They also believe that the government should be responsible for providing the minimum conditions for decent individual existence. Liberalism believes in the welfare state, social reform, racial integration, sex equality and the elimination of poverty.

The Centrist has the political philosophy of avoiding the extremes of both the right and left by taking a moderate position. They assume that there are two opposite poles in the political spectrum. The Centrists tries to maintain a position in the middle of these extremes. Hence they are in the middle of the diagram.

The Conservative believes in maintaining the existing or traditional order of the status quo. They give strong regard to emphasizing respect for traditional institutions. Conservatives emphasize views of social units such as the family, church, or locale. They distrust government activism. They oppose any sudden changes to the established order of things. Conservatives support capitalism and free markets.

The Statist believes in the theory or practice of concentrating the economic and political power in the state. The Statist likes a centralized government to control economic planning and policy. This results in a weak position for the individual or the community. Sovereignty is vested not in the people, but in the state. Individuals exist only to enhance the power, prestige, and well-being of the state. Statism reached it’s highest points as Fascist and Marxist states like Germany, Russia, and China.

So where do you fall?

Great Britain – Our Example?

The UK (United Kingdom) has become what some people call the “surveillance society.” Security cameras are placed just about everywhere. They are on street corners, and at traffic intersections – everywhere. They are not placed there to stop or prevent crimes as one might think. Instead, they are used to provide surveillance on its citizens and their daily activities. The government has gigantic databases that track the intimate personal details of its citizens and their daily lives. Is that a real intrusion into their privacy? What privacy?

Britain enacted a law in 2000 that gives the government large surveillance powers. The government can legally follow residents secretly. Here is an example of Big Brother at work. The government suspected that a woman (mother of three) was lying about her address to get her daughter into a neighborhood school. The local officials began a covert surveillance operation on her and her actions. They obtained her telephone records and followed her for three weeks noting her every movement including the use of her car and the whereabouts of her and her children. Luckily, it turned out that she had broken no rules or laws. All of this was “legal.” Why they even have microchips placed inside garbage containers to monitor what you dispose of and how much carbon you waste.

America, are we headed there too? This administration has created the unprecedented steps towards eliminating personal liberties. It has attacked the 1st Amendment several times. Recall the government website created to report people who gave “misinformation” regarding ObamaCare. The latest is the FCCs attempt to take over control (censorship) of the Internet with the so called Net Neutrality Act. This is nothing more than a newer version of the Fairness Doctrine aimed exclusively at the Internet. The White House is currently attacking freedom of speech by trying to neutralize Fox News calling it nothing more than the TV version of talk radio.

The Obama administration has tried to use the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to promote government propaganda using a taxpayer funded organization. It also sees nothing wrong with administering and disseminating lesson plans to public schools to promote presidential policies.

It supports and hires known communists and radicals to serve as advisers (Czars) who report directly to the President. These people have no Congressional oversight whatsoever. There are no checks and balances to these appointees. They were hired by the Administration and Congress has no control over them whatsoever.

The administration also hires organizations that have been accused of election fraud and various criminal activities to be in charge of taking the United States census. Until Fox news broke the story of criminal activities, ACORN was considered by the White House as one of its strongest allies.

The previous administration enacted the Patriot Act which has been used to provide wire taps used against American citizens without court orders. They held American citizens without access to a lawyer for indefinite periods of time. This administration wants to strengthen these powers and expand what they can do.

All of these things show a pattern. It is a pattern of disrespect towards the Constitution and towards our personal liberties. There’s too much happening to all be just a coincidence. We need to wake up and pay more attention to what is happening or we will end up like the woman in Great Britain.
