Al Gore: A Study in Hypocrisy

Al Gore has told us we must embrace a "carbon-neutral lifestyle." To do otherwise, he says, will result in a cataclysmic catastrophe. "Humanity is sitting on a ticking time bomb," said Gore in his movie An Inconvenient Truth. "We have just 10 years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tailspin." Gore tells us to use compact fluorescent light bulbs, use a clothesline, drive a hybrid, use renewable energy, and to dramatically cut back on consumption. Think small, says Gore.

But what he does is something else. Until recently Gore and his wife Tipper lived in two mansions: a 10,000-square-foot, 20-room, eight-bathroom home in Nashville, TN and a 4,000-square-foot home in Arlington, Va. He also has a smaller one in Carthage. But hey, why would anyone expect a Hollywood liberal to practice what he preaches. Well, Big Al has really gone overboard now.

According to the L.A. Times, Big Al has added another mansion to his holdings. Click Here For LA Times Article. This one is in Montecito CA. It only cost $8,875,000. It sits on 1.5 acres and has a swimming pool, spa, fountains, six fireplaces, five bedrooms, and nine bathrooms. I am sure that the nine bathrooms will be put to good use since Big Al is full of you know what! Way to go Big Al. Think small. Use those florescent light bulbs for your lighting needs (Question: can you light all those spas, swimming pools, etc. with florescent lights?)

And to think this blow hard almost became President.

I wonder if they give a Nobel Prize for Hypocrisy. If so, Big Al should win it easily.

Rush liked this Post "The Arizona Uproar"

Rush read this post by Mr. Leo Banks today on his Radio Show. Mr. Bank's details are above anything you will get from the trashy, racist Main Stream Media. What happens when a Liberal Marxist is killed, raped or robbed by an Illegal Alien? Then is the Government at fault for not protecting him/her/it?

By Leo W. Banks
Listening to the national uproar, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Arizona has marched into the civil rights apocalypse with its new state law cracking down on illegal immigrants.

Last Friday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed SB1070, making it a crime to be in the state illegally and requiring cops, where "reasonable suspicion" exists, to determine a person's legal status.

Rev. Al Sharpton is promising to come to Arizona to march, the New York Times says that the state has gone "off the deep end," and the Nazi references are flying. Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony likened SB1070 to "German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques."

Riding the noise for political advantage, President Obama is summoning his Justice Department to look into the matter, saying that the law would "undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans."

But 70 percent of Arizona residents support the law, according to Rasmussen.

What's going on here? Do we know something the rest of the country doesn't?

Actually, we do. Context is everything, and it'd be nice if the national media provided some, rather than simply slamming Arizona as a redneck haven filled with nativists and bubbas with a hankering for racial profiling.

An estimated 500,000 Illegal Aliens live in Arizona, and many are decent folks, to be sure. But the border is still wide open, and many more are coming. Last year in Border Patrol's 262-mile-wide Tucson Sector, agents arrested 241,000 illegal aliens, a drop of more than 130,000 from 2007.

It sounds great until you understand that gotaways outnumber arrests by three to one.

Does the country realize this, or have the people bought Janet Napolitano's political fairy tale that border security has been "transformed" from where we were in 2007?

As Obama lectures Arizona, citizens here await his decision on an urgent request to send three thousand National Guard troops to the border. Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl recently asked for soldiers, as did Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, to bring some security to American citizens being hammered by cross-border smugglers and thugs.

Here's an important bit of context: This isn't your father's illegal immigration, when polite farm workers offered to do chores in return for some water and a sandwich as they walked north. Today, the drug cartels have taken over the people-smuggling business. They own the trails into the country and dominate the land, the same way urban gangs control neighborhoods

Any group wanting in has to deal with them, and the going rate is $2,500 per person. If you don't have the cash, the cartel coyote will offer to bring you in for free if you carry his dope. As Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever testified to the Senate Homeland Security Committee last week, most of the groups coming up now have a gun behind them.

Along the Chiricahua Corridor smuggling route north and east of Douglas, Arizona, residents have been screaming for some time about break-ins, threats, intimidation, vandalism, and home invasions. But the feds did nothing to keep citizens safe. Instead, they talked amnesty. Then the inevitable happened.

On March 27, Cochise County rancher Rob Krentz was murdered on his land, presumably by a drug smuggler. The death occurred on a well-known drug trail, and trackers followed the killer's prints back into Mexico. He is still at large.

Now, I can't argue with those who say that SB1070 has some provisions that smack of desperation -- such as making it a crime to stop your car to pick up a day laborer or to enter a stopped car to get temporary work. That sounds impossible to enforce.

But critics also say that it will have no impact on besieged residents of southern Arizona, and I disagree. It could help.

We have a huge problem with crooks coming up from Mexico to our cities and towns, committing crimes, and bolting back south of the border. Not long ago, I wrote a story that backtracked the records of two of these border coyotes and found that between them, they'd been arrested and released by either law enforcement or the courts a total of 35 times.

One was let go after a traffic stop, and the other had worked construction in Phoenix for years. If this law had been in effect, the police might've been able to get them off the street before they were able to lead more groups into southern Arizona, break into homes, and frighten citizens.

Civil rights? What about the civil right of American citizens to drive up to their homes at night and have some reasonable assurance that no one is inside?

On March 31, four hundred people gathered outside the one-room Apache School to tell their elected reps what it's like to live in smuggler-occupied territory. The meeting was held there, in the cold, open air, in part because the nearest place to host a group that size inside was seventy round-trip miles away, and these folks didn't feel comfortable leaving their homes for that length of time.

They live by a rule of thumb: If you leave your house empty, it will be occupied by illegals or drug smugglers. We're not talking just about homes five miles from the international line. We're talking about homes up to sixty miles north of the border.

Racial profiling doesn't matter much when you're in a fight to preserve your way of life and keep your family and property safe. Let me give you a different perspective on racial profiling. Now, when Border Patrol chases down and arrests illegals south of I-10, everybody says, "Atta boy. Good police work."

But if these crossers put a toe north of I-10, they're home free. Except for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, nobody is looking for them, and if you do, it's racial profiling.

The farther you get from the line, the more people want to make this problem about race. It's the ground the left wants to fight on because it's so effective. Political correctness shuts people up and keeps the border open.

Arizona has had enough and seen enough. This bill, admittedly flawed, motivated in part by anger and frustration, is an effort to step in and do something about a serious national problem on our southern border that grows more dangerous all the time.
But the national media largely ignore it because it offers up the wrong victims and the wrong politics. They don't send reporters out to Arizona get the story, to walk the smuggling trails, to sit with beleaguered Americans at their kitchen tables and understand the torment their lives have become.

Instead, they adopt the preening pose of the self-righteous, screaming from a safe distance about the bubbas. All 70 percent of them.

It's more fun than context.

This is only one State. Stop Illegal Immigration!


We should give our support to Arizona. They are just following the Law. They want to support the LEGAL Americans as the State sinks in debt. When States take on Illegal people of any background, it kills the budget of many States.
However, we get RACE BAITERS like Al Sharpton and Barry Soetero jump on the Arizona Governor for this Law. First of all, if Barry was doing his job, the State of Arizona would not have to go this far.
The Violent Left Marxists claim that these People (Illegal People) are Human? Well walk into you Local Bank and tell the bank to give you Money and a Roof over your head because you are Human.

From the L. A. Times

1. 40% of all workers in L.A. County (L.A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes.
This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.

6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7. The FBI reports 50% of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

8 Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.

10. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish; There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County.

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.
Over 70% of the United States ' annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from immigration.
29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

Why do we let this continue? HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Tell everyone of this letter.

This is only one State......

Lt. Col. Allen West speaks about Islam

This is a speech given by Lt. Col. Allen West [retired] who served as a commander in Iraq. He he is talking about Islam and its threat to civilization. Listen to this man, and as you do, scroll down a bit to find his words being printed on the screen as he speaks. This man put Barack Hussein Obama, and many of our Left Wing, spineless politicians and the Fringe Main Stream Media to shame, all the while, never calling any of them by name. If you are like me, you will probably listen to it more than once.

Courage Under Fire

You're a 19 year old kid.

You're critically wounded and dying in the jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Vietnam .

It's November 11, 1967.

LZ (landing zone) X-ray.

Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 yards away, that your CO(commanding officer) has ordered the MedEvac helicopters to
stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're not getting out.

Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again.

As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then - over the machine gun noise - you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.

You look up to see a Huey coming in. But ... It doesn't seem real because no MedEvac markings are on it.

Captain Ed Freeman is coming in for you.

He's not MedEvac so it's not his job, but he heard the radio call and decided he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway.

Even after the MedEvacs were ordered not to come. He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 3 of you
at a time on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses
and safety.

And, he kept coming back!! 13 more times!!
Until all the wounded were out. No one knew until the mission was over that the Captain had been hit 4 times in the legs
and left arm.

He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day. Some would not have made it without the Captain and his Huey.


Medal of Honor Recipient,Captain Ed Freeman, United States Air Force,
died last Wednesday at the age of 70, in Boise, Idaho.

May God Bless and Rest His Soul.

I bet you didn't hear about this hero's passing, but we've sure seen a whole bunch about Lindsay Lohan Michael Jackson and Tiger Woods.

Medal of Honor Winner Captain Ed Freeman

Shame on the American media!!!

Now please pass this along to YOUR Patriot friends. Honor this real American.

Jewish Sam Miller on Catholics

Sam Miller on Catholics... An excellent rebuttal by a non-Catholic...

Excerpts of an article written by Sam Miller, prominent Cleveland Jewish businessman-- who is NOT a Catholic.

Why would newspapers carry on a vendetta on one of the most important institutions that we have today in the United States, namely the Catholic Church?

Do you know--the Catholic Church educates 2.6 million students everyday at the cost to that Church of 10 billion dollars, and a savings on the other hand to the American taxpayer of 18 billion dollars. The graduates go on to graduate studies at the rate of 92%.

The Church has 230 colleges and universities in the U.S. with an enrollment of 700,000 students.

The Catholic Church has a non-profit hospital system of 637 hospitals, which account for hospital treatment of 1 out of every 5 people--not just Catholics--in the United States today.

But the press is vindictive and trying to totally denigrate in every way the Catholic Church in this country. They have blamed the disease of pedophilia on the Catholic Church, which is as irresponsible as blaming adultery on the institution of marriage.

Let me give you some figures that Catholics should know and remember. For example, 12% of the 300 Protestant clergy surveyed admitted to sexual intercourse with a parishioner; 38% acknowledged other inappropriate sexual contact in a study by the United Methodist Church, 41.8% of clergy women reported unwanted sexual behavior; 17% of laywomen have been sexually harassed.

Meanwhile, 1.7% of the Catholic clergy has been found guilty of pedophilia. 10% of the Protestant ministers have been found guilty of pedophilia. This is not a Catholic Problem.

A study of American priests showed that most are happy in the priesthood and find it even better than they had expected, and that most, if given the choice, would choose to be priests again i face of all this obnoxious PR the church has been receiving.

The Catholic Church is bleeding from self-inflicted wounds. The agony that Catholics have felt and suffered is not necessarily the fault of the Church. You have been hurt by a small number of wayward priests that have probably been weeded out by now.

Walk with your shoulders high and you head higher. Be a proud member of the most important non-governmental agency in the United States. Then remember what Jeremiah said: 'Stand by the roads, and look and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is and walk in it, and find rest for your souls'. Be proud to speak up for your faith with pride and reverence and learn what your Church does for all other religions.

Be proud if you're a Catholic.

Hat tip to Neil.

Allee Bautsch: Bobby Jindal’s Campaign Finance Director Attacked In French Quarter

New Orleans? Okay, isn't this the City that was supposed to turn into Chocolate Only? Yes, their RACIST Mayor Raylean Nagin was supposed to turn the City into a Chocolate Wonderlan, only for Black People. This information below sounds a lot like the low lifes that hangout with Barry Soetero, the SEIU.

Allee Bautsch, Bobby Jindal’s campaign finance director was attacked in the French Quarter in New Orleans as she was leaving a fund-raising event for the Louisiana Republican Party. The event was held at Brennan’s Restaurant during the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. The attack occurred on Friday evening as Bautsch and her boyfriend were leaving the restaurant. His name hasn’t been released.

News of the attack was not released until this evening, leaving many to wonder why there was a three-day delay in releasing the fact that the couple were attacked outside of the event.

On Monday, April 12, 2010, Governor Bobby Jindal’s office put out a statement that Allee Bautsch had suffered a broken leg. Her boyfriend suffered a concussion, a fractured nose and a broken jaw in the incident. Current reports are that the couple became involved in an altercation with a group of people in the French Quarter as they were leaving the fund-raising event. However, there are no reports of anyone being injured except for Bautsch and her friend.

Kyle Plotkin, a spokesman for Gov. Jindal, said that Allee Bautsch had surgery over the weekend and is expected to take two to three months to recover. There is currently no information on the condition of her boyfriend. The governors office declined to put out more information so as not to interfere with the ongoing police investigation.

Plotkin’s full statement is below:

“Friday night, the Governor’s campaign fundraiser, Allee Bautsch, and her boyfriend were involved in an altercation in the French Quarter with a group of people.

While there were protestors around at that time, we are not aware of any evidence that the individuals involved in the altercation were protestors.

Allee’s leg was badly broken in the incident, she has had surgery, and she is facing a recovery time of two to three months. Her boyfriend had a concussion, and also a fractured nose and jaw. They are both expected to fully recover.

NOPD is investigating the incident and we are refraining from further comment to allow them to fully investigate and ensure justice is done. Our prayers are with Allee. She is a strong person and we are sure she will make a speedy recovery.

Jindal was at the fund-raising event for the Louisiana Republican Party at Brennan’s Restaurant, but was not present when the attack on his campaign finance director occurred. The New Orleans police are investigating the incident.

There were protesters in the area at the time of the altercation, however, Jindal’s office refuses to speculate as to whether or not the attack was perpetrated by the democratic protesters. There is also no information being put out there as to what the protesters were protesting. Some are speculating that the assault happened after a heated argument about Sarah Palin.

It will be interesting to find out who the ‘group of people’ are that confronted Allee Bautsch and her boyfriend as they left Brennan’s. Were they the protesters outside the restaurant? Were they union thugs? The thought that they might be gangsters seems far-fetched as gangs usually attack each other and that area of the French Quarter is considered relatively safe.

I think its a safe bet that it wasn’t Tea Party members, even though the left is often accusing them of violent acts – even though none have been witnessed by anyone.

Sadly, the extent of injuries suffered by both Allee Bautsch and her boyfriend make it obvious that it was more than an exchange of cross words that lead to some shoving. Bobby Jindal’s campaign finance director attacked in the French Quarter following a campaign fund-raising event and being left with such severe injuries has the appearance of an assault by people who might have some familiarity with inflicting bodily harm on others.

We will update this story as more information becomes available. Unfortunately, there are no Allee Bautsch pictures available for use at this time.

Update: There are some reports that someone who visited Bautsch in the hospital reported that Bautsch was attacked for wearing a Palin pin. This is hear-say at this point, but I imagine we’ll find out more as the days go forward.

People are speculating as to why it wasn’t reported for three days. It is our understanding that the case has been under investigation since the incident happened. It just wasn’t reported in the media until yesterday.

Race Relations

If a group of white individuals attacked an African-American person, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the New York Times, and the remainder of the mainstream media would be calling for an investigation and for punishment. But look what happens when the shoe is on the other foot.

In New York City on Easter Sunday black gangs attacked patrons who attended the auto show at the Javits Center. 33 persons were arrested and property damage and personal injuries were substantial. As a side note, African-Americans make up 24% of New York City’s population but committed 68.5% of all murders, rapes, robberies, and assaults in the city last year. I guess this is what Al Sharpton means when he says African-Americans want a bigger piece of the pie.

In July 2009, Marty Marshall and his family of six were attacked by dozens of black teenage boys who shouted “This is our world" and "This is a black world" as they beat Marshall and his family. This took place in Akron, OH. In Iowa City, Iowa, a town that has only 2,700 African-Americans out of a population of 67,000, gangs of black thugs attacked white individuals at random.

In December 2009 and February 19, 2010 African-American “students” attacked Asian students in Philadelphia. Similar incidents also took place in New York City. Of course you would not know that these were racial incidents since the local news media did not mention the race of the thugs.

Within the past month Kansas City has been the scene of at least two race riots.
The one constant in all of these incidents is the fact that the main stream media was silent on the race of the thugs. If you read their account of the stories it sounded like a groups of teenagers of all races decided to go on a rampage.

Racial violence against any group is wrong. However, where are the voices of politicians, the media, and the professional race baiters such as Sharpton and Jackson when whites are being targeted by African-Americans?

Obama Appoints two devout Muslims to Home Land Security Posts

Doesn't this make you feel safer already? Anybody believe Mr. Soetero is not a MUSLIM? His Wife speaks Here.

Obama and Janet Napolitano Appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...? Just wondering.

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn't this make you feel safer already? That should make our home land much safer, huh!

Was it not "Devout Muslim men" that flew planes into U.S. buildings 8 years ago? Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood?

Show this important information to anyone that cares about the future of our Country.

Acting stupidly in Cambridge, Stop Marxism

Below is another great article from Peter Wilson. He points out how we wast money on ludicrous charges. How come Barry Soetero jumped on the WHITE Cop, the Business Owner, the Patriots at Tea Parties but bows to evil.
Also, Barry knew this Professor Gates like he knows Rev. Wright. These Racists seem to cling together. See for yourself at STOP MARXISM!

By Peter Wilson
The arrest of Professor Henry Louis Gates last July by "stupid" Cambridge Police Sgt. James Crowley was supposed to be resolved when President Obama convened a beer summit with the two men. Addition to the national debt: travel expenses for two from Boston to Washington, say $500 each, plus three beers.

For once the federal solution was more frugal than the municipal one.

In the wake of the incident, the Cambridge Chronicle reports today, the City convened a "Review Committee," described as "composed of 12 independent, high-profile professionals from across the country to tackle the aftermath of the July 16 incident that sparked heated discussions of race and class."

Six members of the committee are from "across the country," which so far has cost Cambridge taxpayers $19,799 in hotels and flights for three one-day meetings last fall, out of a total Committee budget of $31,000.

This is small beer compared with the next item reported in the Chronicle:

They also hired Jennifer Flagg, a former Massachusetts Turnpike Authority and Executive Office of Public Safety official, for a one-year, $130,000 position as the committee's facilitator.

It seems that Cambridge didn't waste the Prof. Gates "crisis." $161,000 would buy a lot of beer.

Aside from the fact that the entire committee is a waste of time, why do three meetings require a salaried hack-excuse me, facilitator? Are there no concerned citizens who might have volunteered for the post? Are there no local experts in a community with the highest concentrations of Ph.D's in the country who could have been tapped for the Committee, saving travel expenses?

Granted, the total expense is a tiny fraction of the Cambridge budget of $444 million, but it is representative of thousands wasteful budget decisions that occur at every level of government. Is it any wonder the Tea Party strikes a chord with so many?

Secure Our Borders! NOW!

On March 27, Arizona Rancher Rob Krentz was found shot to death on his borderlands ranch. The Krentz family owns a 35,000-acre ranch in Arizona about 20 miles north of the Southwest border. Authorities say they found footprints near Krentz's vehicle and followed them to the U.S. - Mexican border. In all likelihood, illegal aliens are responsible for the death of Rob Krentz. The governors of Texas and New Mexico are convinced as they have sent reinforcements to secure their sections of the U.S. - Mexico border.

Sadly, it seems that DHS, Congress, and the Obama Administration are not taking Rob Krentz's death seriously and have not taken steps to secure our borders. Indeed, some groups are taking advantage of this tragic death to further their pro-amnesty agenda.

Please tell to Obama and your Members of Congress and urge them to secure the border so that Americans living 10 miles from the Mexican border are just as safe as Americans living 1,000 miles from the Mexican border.

The Obama REGIME is failing to protect us! There are numerous incidents and we, the American People must take down the Radical Marxist at the Polls!

OBAMA'S SEIU union thugs beat a black man

This article below is pertinent to check in with as the low-life Dems cry about some made-up taunting. Let's look at real attacks! By the Left Wing Nazis, the purple shirts, brown shirts or whatever liberal shirt they wear.
These actions below are despicable but the fringe MSM sits around with their head in the sand. Shouldn't the MSM and SEIU be called out for being Racists?
Now the weasels who voted in Nobama, even after hearing his demands for a Civil Security Force like Hitler's Brown Shirts, wake the heck up???

OBAMA'S SEIU union thugs beat a black man at a town hall meeting! Now the calls for investigations into obamas union thugs ordered to do this ! Will there ever be an HONEST prosecutor or judge to uphold the constitution they swore to do?

ALG Calls for Special Prosecutor Re: Obama's Union Thugs "Investigate White House Complicity"
I love this! It is long overdue. This intimidation here and here is illegal. The leftist thugs have been pulling this thuggery for years ...........

ALG Condemns SEIU Beating of Kenneth Gladney at St. Louis Town Hall, Calls for Special Prosecutor to "Investigate White House Complicity"

This portion by Pamela Geller
Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today condemned the brutal beating of activist Kenneth Gladney in South St. Louis County, MO, at a town hall event sponsored by Congressman Russ Caranhan (D-MO) by SEIU members who Wilson said "appears to have been sent out purposely to intimidate the crowd and instigate violence.">Wilson said that a Special Prosecutor would need to be called "to investigate the possibility of White House complicity in this union thuggery." The White House told representatives and senators 'punch back twice as hard' against opposition to Barack Obama's government-run health care initiative, and "clearly some of their followers took the message to heart," Wilson said.

According to Kenneth Gladney's attorney, David B. Brown, "Kenneth was attacked on the evening of August 6, 2009 at Rep. Russ Carnahan's town hall meeting in South St. Louis County. I was at the town hall meeting as well and witnessed the events leading up to the attack of Kenneth. Kenneth was approached by an SEIU representative as Kenneth was handing out 'Don't Tread on Me' flags to other conservatives."

The statement continued, "The SEIU representative demanded to know why a black man was handing out these flags. The SEIU member used a racial slur against Kenneth, then punched him in the face. Kenneth fell to the ground. Another SEIU member yelled racial epithets at Kenneth as he kicked him in the head and back. Kenneth was also brutally attacked by one other male SEIU member and an unidentified woman."

According to the statement, "The three men were clearly SEIU members, as they were wearing T-shirts with the SEIU logo."

"This sort of thuggish political violence is what one would expect in Mussolini's Italy by the Black Shirts," said Wilson, adding that, "This is pure fascist aggression. The SEIU is sending out goon squads to beat people up who disagree with ObamaCare. Only a Special Prosecutor can determine if it was done with the knowledge of the White House and Congressman Carnahan."

After watching the video, Wilson said, "The part where the attackers claimed they were attacked, when Mr. Gladney is clearly on his back, is straight out of the SEIU-ACORN playbook. They train their thugs well. Only, this time, they were caught."

According to Brown's statement, Gladney was being civil when he was attacked: "Kenneth was beaten badly. One assailant fled on foot; three others were arrested. Kenneth was admitted to St. John's Mercy Medical Center emergency room, where he was treated for his numerous injuries. Kenneth was merely expressing his freedom of speech by handing out the flags. In fact, he merely asked people as they exited the town hall meeting whether they would like a flag."

Brown insisted that Gladney "in no way provoked any argument or altercation, as evidenced by the fact that three assailants were arrested."

"This is a sad chapter in American history," Wilson declared, "when a man is cruelly assaulted by political hooligans merely for expressing his beliefs and exercising his First Amendment rights to speak freely and peaceably assemble."Wilson said there was a causal relationship between the White House's call to "punch back" against opposition to Barack Obama's government-run health care initiative and the incident. "The White House sent out millions of emails, as did the DNC, and the SEIU, all calling on supporters to attend these meetings. And now we know why."The SEIU, the Service Employees International Union, was formed by Wade Rathke, also founder of the group, ACORN, which Barack Obama served as an attorney for. "These are the same people that helped get Barack Obama elected," Wilson explained."Barack Obama has long-time financial and material relationship with ACORN and SEIU. SEIU donated $30.8 million to Obama's campaign, organized volunteers, and campaigned on his behalf. ACORN is under investigation for crimes in 15 states, and Barack Obama served as their attorney at one point. He even gave them $800,000 in 2008 for 'get-out-the-vote' efforts. And now they're carrying out his dirty work," Wilson added.According to the Brown's statement, "This was a truly senseless hate crime carried out by racist union thugs. Regretfully, Representative Carnahan's statements blaming Kenneth for being a disruptive force are wholly untrue and slanderous."Carnahan today stated that "Sadly, we've seen stories about disrupters around the country, and we have a handful of them here in Missouri."

"The only disruption that occurred was of Mr. Gladney's rights to life-and-limb as an American citizen," Wilson said in response, charging that, "Carnahan appears to have been complicit in the incident."

Wilson also condemned press outlets for failing to report on Mr. Gladney's story. "Where is the controlled media?" Wilson asked. "Where is CNN? Where is Olbermann and Matthews? They rave about 'mobs' but turn a blind eye to a man who was beaten by union thugs. They should hang their heads in shame, or else apply for network anchor positions in Venezuela."

Wilson said a Special Prosecutor to investigate the White House, SEIU, and Carnahan was necessary because "The American people have no faith in Eric Holder's Justice Department, which just let two goons off-the-hook who were intimidating voters in 2008 at a Philadelphia polling station with Billy clubs."

"If anyone thinks there was no relationship between Obama's call to "punch back" and this brutality in the streets of St. Louis, we have some nice real estate that runs over the East River in New York we'd think they'd be interested in purchasing," Wilson concluded

Letter to Obama - "No we can't"

A very compelling letter. It's amazing how Obama is treating Afghanistan's Karzi, who has open disdain for the US. Compare that behavior to Obama's outrage for the egregious acts of Israel in announcing a zoning approval for housing in East Jerusalem. The WSJ had a good editorial on just this subject.
Yes, Barry Soetero continues to spit on America and our Allies!

Please read this Letter from Avi Ifergan, Rehovot, Israel
March 27, 2010
Avi Ifergan, Rehovot, Israel
Dear Mr. President,

Earlier this month, your Secretary of State told a forum of Jewish leaders that sometimes friends need to tell each other the "hard truth". Well Mr. President, allow me, on behalf of my people, to return the courtesy. You have always been rhetorically supportive of Israel, but the incongruence of your actions in the first year of your presidency have left us Israelis, and Jews worldwide, scratching their heads in bewilderment. Mr. President, here's the hard truth from an Israeli father of 3 daughters, under the age of 6.

No we can't take any chances when it comes to the physical security of our land, our people or my girls. There exists no room for error. Security is the primary priority.

You see, we learn from our history, and it teaches us a simple truth: No we can't count on the promises or protection of other nations when our people face an existential threat. The world watched, immovable, as we were slaughtered by the Nazis; In every decade of Israel's existence, its neighbors, or the Palestinians waged war on us, and the world watched in relative silence. In the years after the so-called Oslo Peace Treaty, the world remained silent as Israelis faced hundreds of Palestinian suicide bombings, stabbings, drive-by shootings, and kidnappings. The world did however feel free to openly criticize us when we set up check posts and built a security fence to protect ourselves.

No we can't understand how, in 2006, when over 4,000 Hezbollah missiles rained down on a third of the Israeli population, the leaders of the world found it important to criticize Israel's military reaction. Similarly we read their criticisms that were splashed across the headlines of the global media during Operation Cast Lead in Gaza in 2008. They remained silent during the preceding 6 years that the Kassam rockets from Gaza forced Israel's Southern population to sleep in bomb shelters, and did not commend Israel's military restraint. Of course, that changed as the Israeli military went into Gaza to locate and destroy the Hamas rocket launchers.

No we can't believe that you would expect your governments to react any differently, if you and your children were faced with the similar threats.

No we can't stomach the thought of a holocaust-denying, Hezbollah- and Hamas-funding Iranian President, who in the same breath openly states that his intentions are for Iran to achieve nuclear capabilities, and for the destruction of the‘"Zionist entity".

No we can't imagine you doing anything more than proposing more painful sanctions on Iran and what do you call it "containment"? This is where he ends up getting the nuclear weapons he seeks, right?

No we can't accept a divided Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel, and of the Jewish people. It is not ‘the third holiest city", as it is for the Moslems. It is the only holy city of the Jewish people. It has been so for over 2,000 years. Since coming under Israeli sovereignty all religions have been able to visit and practice openly and freely. Oh – and you should know that the ‘Waqf", those Palestinians who control the Temple Mount in Jerusalem , do not allow any other religions, Jew or Christian, to pray there. I even hear that swaying or the silent moving of the lips is forbidden.

So, no we can't have friends dictating to us where in Jerusalem we can or cannot build or feeling insulted when we do as we please in our own land.

No we can't believe that giving the Palestinian people a land of their own is such a high priority on your foreign policy agenda. Considering their civil rights and terrorist track-record, and the growing influence of Hamas as the likely ruling party. Mr. President, did you know that when the Palestinian Authority came to power in 1994, the first piece of legislation that it passed was the death penalty for any Palestinian who sells land to Jews. Over 100 Palestinians have died, under sentence or extra-judicially, for such sales in the last 15 years. Is this the two-state solution" that you imagine?

No we can't comprehend why you would spend the first year of your presidency hugging, owing and warming to those shining leaders of freedom and democracy Venezuela's Chavez, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, or Mubarak of Egypt. I know you're aware of the brutality and lack of freedoms in such non-democracies – the beheadings, the inability of a woman to bear witness in court, or to simply drive, the lack of tolerance when it comes to people who are different – be it culture, religion, or sexual orientation.

And No we can't understand why, in Israel, where the opposite is true, where Arabs enjoy more freedoms than in any Arab country in the world – freedoms of speech and expression, the press, religion, tolerance to the gay and lesbian community, gender equality, you choose to make a big deal about Jews building in their holiest city - Jerusalem ? We're an easy target, we know, but please, how about finding something more substantial to make an issue of – and about a non-democracy.

No we can't fathom why on earth you don't get us Israelis yet. We Israelis and our governments have repeatedly demonstrated an unwavering commitment to peace, and a willingness to pay a high price for it. In 1947, we accepted the UN's ‘two-state resolution on the partition of Palestine, despite the fact that we would not have had any control of Jerusalem or the surrounding neighborhoods; The Arabs rejected it, and instead 6 Arab nations declared war on our fledgling state. In 1979 we gave up a piece of land greater than the size of the state of Israel , the Sinai, for peace with Egyptians. In 1999, we unilaterally withdrew from South Lebanon , allowing Hezbollah to set up its bases in our stead. A year later, Israeli PM Ehud Barak offered the Palestinians "the deal of the century", 97% of the West Bank, 100% of the Gaza strip, the dismantling of 63 settlements and agreeing that the East Jerusalem neighborhoods would become the capital of their new state. This too, was rejected by the Palestinians. In 2005, Israeli PM Sharon, without negotiations or demanding of concessions, unilaterally pushed through his disengagement plan that led to the dismantling of 21 settlements in the Gaza Strip and 4 in the West Bank .

No we can't trust you, yet. Trust is earned. You see, Mr. President, I teach my girls to pay little attention to words and close attention to deeds. My people have demonstrated by deed that we are willing to pay a high price for peace and security. On more than one occasion you have said that you are committed to the Israel's security and will not tolerate a nuclear-capable Iran . Now it's your turn to match your words with deeds. A two-state solution with the Palestinian people is of little relevance if Iran achieves its nuclear goals.

Obama suggests reparations to blacks

Let's revisit a story from the past. This should help those Kool Aid drinkers understand where Barry is going with his Healthcare. Race! He complains so much about the kids in Hawaii and how hard it was for him. Are the Hawaiian and Asian children that racist?
Barry Soetero and his wife always talk about reparations and how certain people deserve money and Government help.
After Barry Soetero finishes his term of destruction, all Americans will need reparations!

Stop Marxism

This portion below is by WorldNetDaily. WorldNetDaily. is doing great work for America!

Says 'the most important thing to do is not just offer words, but offer deeds'

Sen. Barack Obama told a meeting in Chicago the U.S. should review how it can make amends for "offenses" committed during its history.

And one author is speculating that might even include reparations for al-Qaida soldiers, since, after all, they've been held in violation of their "rights."

Obama's comments came in a meeting with members of UNITY '08, an event for journalists who claim membership in various minorities.

Obama, according to the report in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, stopped just short of endorsing an official U.S. apology to various groups. He said instead the nation should acknowledge treating certain groups poorly.

"There's no doubt that when it comes to our treatment of Native Americans as well as other persons of color in this country, we've got some very sad and difficult things to account for," Obama told the convention.

He has told Hawaii reporters he supports a federal plan to recognize native Hawaiians. He was asked for his thoughts about a formal U.S. apology to American Indians.

"I personally would want to see our tragic history, or the tragic elements of our history, acknowledged," he told conventioneers.

"I consistently believe that when it comes to whether it's Native Americans or African-American issues or reparations, the most important thing for the U.S. government to do is not just offer words, but offer deeds," he said.

The issue of reparations to African-Americans for the historic slave trade or Native Americans for the "invasion" by Europeans periodically has been raised. Several years ago a lawsuit was filed claiming damages for labor at a current value of $1.4 trillion.

At Renew America, Michael Gaynor also publicly wondered about Obama's statements to a recent "Meet the Press."

Obama said, "The biggest problem that we have in terms of race relations, I think, is dealing with the legacy of past discrimination which has resulted in extreme disparities in terms of poverty, in terms of wealth and in terms of income. Our inner cities are a legacy of what happened in the past. And the question is less assigning blame or rooting out active racism, because that's not the reason that those inner cities are in such bad shape, but rather figuring out are we willing to make the investments to deal with that past history so we can move forward to a brighter future? And that involves investing in early childhood education, fixing the schools in those communities, being willing to work in terms of job retraining. And those are serious investments."

Asked Gaynor, "Is 'serious investments' code for 'reparations'? And how expensive and devastating would Obama's income redistribution policy be?"

The comments were being discussed just as the U.S. House of Representatives issued an apology to black Americans for the "fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality and inhumanity of slavery and Jim Crow" segregation."

The resolution sponsored by Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., a white Jew who earlier this year tried unsuccessfully to join the Congressional Black Caucus, was passed on a voice vote.

In February, the Senate apologized to Native Americans, and in 2005 it apologized for standing by during the lynching of blacks last century.

But at the American Spectator, Jeffrey Lord, CEO of QubeTV and former Reagan White House political director, said the logical extension of such thought obviously could include reparations for al-Qaida.

"Does Barack Obama believe it's time for America to apologize to al-Qaida?" he asked. "You think I'm joking, right? Wrong."

"The push has begun among Obama's fellow-liberals for reparations to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida warriors. Look no further than the Los Angeles Times review of the new book by liberal journalist Jane Mayer, 'The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How The War on Terror Turned Into a War on American Ideals.' Mayer's indictment of the Bush administration's fight against terrorism has predictably received glowing reviews from the gatekeepers of liberalism, including a July 15th review from Times staff writer Tim Rutten.

"In wonderfully liberal style that is beyond parody, Rutten uses a book review to endorse the idea of paying money to Osama's fighters who, in the eyes of liberals, have been denied their 'right' of habeas corpus at Guantanamo. The denial of habeas to non-Americans captured on foreign battlefields is, of course, also a major campaign point for Senator Obama. Obama, restating his long-held position about captured al-Qaida fighters having the right of habeas corpus, was prompted by the recent 5-4 Supreme Court decision in Boumediene v. Bush.

"The liberals on the Court, with the mind-boggling addition of Reagan appointee Anthony Kennedy, held that contrary to Bush administration and congressional policy, not to mention all of American history, the prisoners of war or 'detainees' picked up off the battlefields (in this case Afghanistan and Iraq) are in fact entitled to the same constitutional rights as American citizens."

Obama's allies now are "lobbying not simply for habeas corpus rights for al-Qaida but reparations as well," Lord wrote.

"In other words, if you have been captured on the field of battle fighting the U.S. military on behalf of the global jihad and, as a result, are now on an extended stay at Gitmo, liberals feel the appropriate policy of the United States government is to 1) apologize for capturing you and 2) pay you some cold American cash to ease your pain and humiliation."

Lord cited the Nuremberg trials for war criminals from Nazi Germany. "We still gave them a day in court and that taught the entire world about who we are but also the basic principles of rule of law," he quoted Obama saying.

But he said that's wrong. "If America's only problem was with a sum total of about 1,800 German soldiers, why all that disturbing fuss known as World War II."

In reality, half a million prisoners of war were "stashed in 511 internment camps sprinkled all around the good old USA from North Carolina to Iowa to California," he wrote. "Not a single one of these men were given their habeas corpus rights. They were not tried. Not one. They were held as prisoners, forced to do whatever labor their American captors thought suitable until America had won the war."

He continued: "Will Obama … have the courage to follow [the] arguments to their logical conclusions? If the idea is to have American taxpayers fork over damages to Osama's men, why not Hitler's? Where are the trial lawyers who have been flocking to Guantanamo? The size of the damage pot in a suit against the U.S. government for the treatment of Nazis would, one suspects, be considerable."

"What is the difference between, say, German detainees Hans, "R," and Jerry and an al-Qaida Gitmo resident named Abdullah Salih al Ajmi? The first three remained lawyerless while they waited out World War II in Iowa and Minnesota. The last, Abdullah, went through Gitmo's thoroughly lawyered process and was released. On March 23, 2008, he showed up in Mosul, Iraq, when he drove a truck packed with 5,000 to 10,000 pounds of explosives into an Iraqi Army base. He killed 13 Iraqi soldiers and wounded 42 on his last mission, a mission that would never have occurred were he still in Gitmo."

Michelle Obama said Hussein Obama's Home Country Is Kenya

You must listen yo this! Apparently Bill Ayers and Farrakhan and Khalidi's good friend Michelle Obama lets the cat out of the bag.
Now you know why Barry Soetero is working so diligently to bring Comprehensive Illegal Amnesty to the forefront of his Fascist REGIME.
Why is she still talking about Racism when she is at the forefront of dishing it out.

Muslim Heritage in America????

Barack OBAMA, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America 's story."


Dear Mr. Obama:
Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence ?
Bill of Rights?
Didn't think so.

Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England ? No.

Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. Obama?

Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present.

There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights, aren't they?

Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East . No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on (Especially on your precious CNN) CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day. Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America .
Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslim.

And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan .

That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" in America .

Our President Flirts with Racists

Barry Soetero has been compared to so many Presidents. In modern day history, I can only think of Jimmy Carter who was this bad. However David Pietrusza writes an excellent article placed below with comparisons to Woodrow Wilson.
I guess 52% of American with "Blood on their Hands" want History to repeat itself. By supporting this Racist President, the Anti-American Liberals have their plan in action to dismantle America.

Obama and Wilson

By David Pietrusza
Barack Obama has been compared to Lincoln, FDR, Teddy Roosevelt, and JFK, among others. But few have noted his interesting parallels with Woodrow Wilson. Historical comparisons have their limits. But Wilson-Obama similarities abound, starting with both men's use of the label "progressive."

Wilson was no "community organizer," but like Obama, he was an academic -- among the most prominent political scientists of his day. No other two presidents hang their pre-White House careers so much on academic curriculum vitae. Both then augmented their nascent careers by authorship: Wilson by a treatise on congressional government, and Obama -- an individual perhaps even more self-absorbed than the imperious Wilson -- with a bestselling memoir.

Here the comparisons diverge: Wilson spends key years as president of Princeton, while Obama sojourns in the Illinois State Senate, voting present. But both then achieve statewide office in states in which they not raised: Virginia-born Wilson as governor of New Jersey, Hawaii-born Obama as a United States senator from Illinois. Both succeed Republican incumbents. Both serve just two years before making their move for the presidency.

Both register reputations as orators. Both challenge highly regarded congressional front-runners in hotly-run contests for the nominations. Wilson bests House Speaker Champ Clark in 1912. Obama triumphs over Senator Hillary Clinton. Both easily run roughshod over a badly-dispirited opposition that November. Both appoint high-profile secretaries of state: the aforementioned Clinton by Obama, the aging party warhorse William Jennings Bryan by Wilson. Both Bryan and Clinton soon find themselves largely shunted aside by their respective patrons.

Both more than flirt with racists. Wilson cherishes the South's Lost Cause and segregates federal offices. He praises D. W. Griffith's controversial Birth of a Nation as being "like writing history with lightning." Obama allies himself with black liberation theology advocate Jeremiah Wright. Only political necessity induces him to break with Wright. Nothing keeps him from embracing the execrable Al Sharpton.

It is here that the similarities of style come to the fore. Both Wilson and Obama receive tumultuous receptions in Europe: Obama in his pre-coronation visit to Berlin and Wilson in his unprecedented 1919 European tour. Worshipful crowds greeted Wilson throughout Europe. The adulation, Secretary of State Robert Lansing wrote, "might have turned the head of a man far less responsive than the President was to public applause, and have given him an exalted opinion of his own power of accomplishment and [own] responsibility to mankind."

Yet there remained in Wilson -- and resides in Obama -- a strange academic coldness that stiff-arms natural foreign allies. "I could not bear him," a frustrated George V complained. "An entirely cold academic professor -- an odious man."

In 1916, Woodrow Wilson campaigned as the "peace candidate." Supporters praised him for keeping "us out of war." By April 1917, however, Wilson demanded that Congress declare war on Berlin. In 2008, Obama derided George Bush's Iraqi surge and vowed a quick exit from that nation. He not only reluctantly remains in Iraq, but he has implanted his own surge in Afghanistan.

And while Obama piously vowed to bring an unprecedented "transparency," to Washington, Wilson pledged himself to "open covenants, openly arrived at." Both promises soon entered the dustbin of history.

Wilson's ultimate covenant was, of course, that of his beloved League of Nations, an obsession that caused him to crash his presidency as he stubbornly sacrificed everything to implement a new order of international governance. "The United States must go in [the League] or it will break the heart of the world," Wilson confided to his young Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, presaging Barack Obama's obsession with subordinating American interests to a nebulous world opinion.

Convinced of the necessity of his League, Wilson arrogantly excluded Republicans from the negotiation process and, having compromised at all sides at Versailles, stubbornly refused to allow for any compromise with Republicans (or anyone else) at home. Barack Obama's League of Nations is his national health care plan.

Rather than compromise, Wilson -- and Obama, his fellow Noble Peace Prize laureate -- attempted rather to orate their dreams into reality. Their aim was and is to force a recalcitrant Congress into acquiesce by the force of their oratory -- and their diminishing personal charm. All the while, both chase their dreams while ignoring rapidly deteriorating economies.

Wilson, deciding to circumvent opposing senators, embarked on a grand whistle-stop tour designed to directly sway tens of thousands of constituents, commencing a grueling twenty-two-day, 9,981-mile speaking tour to save his League. Obama hit to road to college campuses and hastily convened town meetings -- and inexplicably even fantasized that he could charm Fox News viewers.

The result for Woodrow Wilson was broken health, broken dreams, no League of Nations -- and twelve years of Republican ascendancy. Enjoying partisan majorities that Wilson did not, Barack Obama finally shoved his League of Notions through Congress, but the result may be a broken health care system, a bankrupt federal government, and a legacy quickly overturned by an overwhelmingly outraged and energized opposition.

For in the end, Barack Obama, despite a Sunday afternoon's bought and bullied triumph, may end up making the world safe not only for Democracy -- but also, once again, for Republicans.

David Pietrusza, author of a forthcoming book on the 1948 election, is also the author of 1920: The Year of the Six Presidents.

ObamaCare will Steal Our Freedom!

A Nation of Dependents

By Beth Haynes, MD

The more we expect government to provide our basic needs, the more we become a nation dependent on government largesse, rather than independent individuals personally empowered to earn the values we seek.

It has already happened in education. Government programs have crowded out private alternatives, currently providing 90% of primary and secondary schooling. Without affordable private alternatives, parents are reduced to lobbying politicians for funding and supporting campaigns to squeeze more tax money from their neighbors.

It has already happened in medical insurance for the elderly. Medicare, a wealth redistribution program misnamed "insurance," pays for the health care of our nation's elderly and has reduced the private insurance industry for this market segment to only 1% of seniors. None can compete with Medicare's mandatory contributions or the IRS as its collection agency. Patients over the age of 65 are captive to the budgetary needs of the entire federal government. Having "spent" their dollars during their productive years paying into the Medicare/Social Security system on the promise of being taken care of in their retirement, far too many of the elderly lack the financial reserves to live independent of government programs.

Now it's about to happen to the rest of us for our pre-retirement health care. When ObamaCare becomes law, we all become government dependents.

This nation, still proud of its fiercely independent individuals, is gradually relinquishing that independence in the hope of achieving security. The tragic irony of all coercive, centrally planned attempts at providing goods and services is that what is obtained is not security, but dependence on the whims of the central planners.

Free, independent producers and traders cooperating with other equally free, independent, and productive individuals, voluntarily exchanging value for value in win-win transactions -- this is the path not only to the security that prosperity brings, but to healthy, peaceful social interactions which nurture goodwill and generosity toward others.

The laws of economics can not be overridden by the laws of Congress: Free markets lead to prosperity; central planning leads to impoverishment and tyranny.

Central planning has gradually eroded the quality of education our youth obtain -- and in the process, it has severely diminished free-market alternatives to government schools.

Medicare has survived only by burdening that same youth with our unpaid bills and through inflationary erosion of our private savings. For the elderly, no affordable private insurance exists even as backup.

ObamaCare is one more destructive iteration of central planning. When health care funding is controlled by the state, medical care is dispensed by politicians -- and we as patients can only lobby, beg, and hope that our "fair share" will be sufficient.

If we wish to escape dependence on government for our vital needs, we must insist upon freedom and personal responsibility for everyone. There is no shortcut to security.

ObamaCare will rob us of our freedom, our independence, and our access to quality medical care. What this country needs instead is real reform consistent with freedom, independence, and individual rights.
