Will YOU Save Freedom? Catch The Tea Party Wave

 

 "The penalty for not participating in politics is to be governed by your inferiors." - Plato

The Presidency is the big political prize. With the worst "president" ever as the incumbent, who is already campaigning, you would think he is in deep trouble, but he could actually win, especially if the GOP fumbles-- and they did.

Looks like we have Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro-Soebarkah-Bounel back and he will be much worse the second time around, full of himself, arrogant, spoiling for revenge, no more elections, "flexibility" for Vladmir, making energy prices "skyrocket," increasing Socialism, deploying Czars, borrowing, spending, QE, taxes,Supreme Court "Justices," especially if the Senate rolls over like last term.

 

For all practical purposes, we are down to only two viable candidates, AKA Obama and Romney. The battle is on.

 Mitt Romney, Nominated by GOP 8-28-12

 

 Mitt Picks Paul Ryan for VP

 

Gary Johnson, Libertarian Nominee

Ed Noonan, CA AIP Nominee

A stacked AIP convention ignored the will of the voters and picked Tom Hoefling as its nominee. Why should they be any different from the Republicrats?

 

- Mitt Romney- W- Bright, highly successful businessman/consultant, Romneycare issue, baggage, flip-flopped on choice, cap/trade, amnesty, now denying "warming," or is he? Opposes SB1070, RINO. Polling well. Choice of GOP hierarchy. Possible eligibility questions. Won NH, 2nd in SC. Won FL big.  CA Nominee and national nominee as of 8-28-12- Congrats!

- Gary Johnson- W- Former successful businessman (construction), 2-time former New Mexico Governor, anti-tax, anti-bureaucracy, Libertarian, pro-choice, more, more, more. Barred from debates. Left GOP to run as Libertarian. CA Nominee and national nominee- Congrats!

- Ed Noonan-W- American Independent Party. Constitutional Conservative. Challenges Obama's eligibility. Shares some of Ron Paul's monetary policy views, but more Conservative overall.  CA AIP Nominee- Congrats!

- Laurie Roth-W- American Independent Party- Singer, songwriter, talk show hostess (IRN-USA), actively challenges Obama's eligibility, work to make America energy independent, stop drug trade, go to only 2% consumption tax.

- John Dummett- W- CA govt. programmer, doesn't seem to have many qualifications, except common sense and intelligence, which I suppose puts him ahead of the incumbent, whose eligibility he actively  challenges, along with the 16th Amendment.

As far as I know, this only includes Republican and Democrat nominees.- G.M.

So, we're down to Romney. John Dummett is still running, but the big parties and media will make sure you don't hear much about him.  The third party candidates lack money, support and publicity to do much. Cody Robert Judy is the only opposition Democrat running with any visibility at all, but not TV or debates. Instead, he is more in the courts, suing Obama over his ineligibility to run, as are candidates such as Ed Noonan (AIP), Laurie Roth (I).  Republicans are eerily silent about that 300 lb. gorilla. even with very strong evidence to back it up. Unfortunately, millions are expected not to vote over their dissatisfaction with Progressive Republican nominee Romney. We caution you about that. PLEASE consider the alternative.  Are you willing to put an ineligible incumbent back in office to make your point?

Former USS Cole Commander on Benghazi: Obama only cares about power and getting reelected

Lt. General Tom McInerney told Judge Jeanine tonight that the only reason the Obama administration ordered the FBI to investigate the Benghazi attack is to stall it through the election. He says this was an act of war against the United States and if this had been assigned to the military we would have known 2 days later what happened. He adds that we know who they are and where they are and that we should have already attacked those people.

Former USS Cole Commander Kirk Lippold said that the parallels between this case and the attack on the USS Cole are absolutely striking in that the Cole attack was one month before an election and that Clinton delayed just as the Obama administration is delaying all for political purposes. He further states emphatically:

The Obama administration in this thing, just like the Clinton administration, does not care about what the American people think about this incident. They care about power and getting reelected.

Why Mitt Romney Is the Only Choice for Libertarians

By Wayne Allyn Root

As a former Libertarian Presidential contender, the 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee, the former Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee, and the man called “Mr. Libertarian” by media across this country, you might be surprised to find I’m supporting Republican Mitt Romney for President. Yes, this Las Vegan has gone “all in” for Mitt. Mitt Romney is the only sane choice for Libertarians.

It’s simple. Libertarians believe in less government; lower taxes; cutting rules, regulations and mandates to get government out of the way of small business; reigning in out-of-control government agencies like the EPA; auditing the Fed; and balancing the budget. Sound familiar?

So do Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Certainly a little less than Libertarians, including me, would like. But, I’ll take incremental progress over no progress. Mitt Romney is a step in the right direction.

Barack Obama is a thousand miles in the wrong direction- a direction that leads to the bankruptcy of our children and grandchildren and the destruction of the American Dream. A vote for anyone but Romney is a vote for Obama and his disastrous road that leads to the end of America (as we know it).

The Obama you’ve seen for the last four years is nothing like the radical Obama that will be unleashed for the next four. The first Obama term was just a small taste of things to come. Without having to answer to voters again, Obama will be his REAL radical self. Without restraint, Obama will ignore Congress, and govern by Executive Order. These radical Executive Orders from “Obama unleashed” will change America forever.

Don’t believe me? Are you aware Obama issued almost 1000 executive orders in his first term? That’s more than all other Presidents in history combined (and still counting). In a second term Obama will render Congress meaningless.

In 8 years Bush added $3 trillion in debt and created 20,000 new government rules and regulations. Disgraceful. In protest, I left the GOP in 2007. Then along came Obama. He has added $5 trillion in debt and 60,000 new rules and regulations…in only 3 ½ years. Unimaginable.

In a second term, with no voters to answer to, Obama will be free to wreck the American economy just as he was taught by a slew of radical, Marxist, American hating mentors- Barack Obama Sr., Frank Marshall, Saul Alinsky, Professors Cloward & Piven, Bill Ayers, and Reverend Jeremiah Wright. These aren’t liberals. They are publicly avowed radicals and communists.

In Obama’s second term he will unleash economic Armageddon- the total collapse of the U.S. economy and our financial system. Today the real unemployment is in the 15% range. By 2016, we will look back with envy at “the good old days.” You think $5 trillion in new debt is bad? Wait until Obamacare kicks in, adding trillions in new taxes and spending that will double the national debt.

Europe has been following Obama’s plan for decades — big government, big unions, big spending, big taxes, big pensions, big entitlements, free healthcare, too many government employees, out-of-control pensions, and unlimited spending on green energy. The result? Economic disaster on a grand scale. Greece, Italy, and Spain are enduring a tragedy few can comprehend. France is next. Someday we will read about this in history books.

America, under Obama, is following the exact same path.

Hopefully I’ve got your attention.

This election is NOT about Libertarian versus non-Libertarian. This election is about capitalism versus Big Brother socialism. Mitt Romney is far from perfect, but at least he believes in capitalism. At least he won’t denigrate and discourage business owners. Be thankful for little things.

I’m not just a Libertarian. First and foremost, I’m a Capitalist Evangelist. I’m proud to be a small businessman. Economic issues are the whole ballgame at this point. We need to get our fiscal house in order first. Without an economy, without jobs, it’s impossible to deal with all our other problems. Mitt understands, as President Calvin Coolidge once said, “The business of America is business.” That’s why electing Mitt Romney is so important.

This election is our LAST STAND to save America. Mitt understands that Obama’s rhetoric, constant threats against business, union favoritism, IRS intimidation, 60,000 new rules and regulations, stimulus to nowhere, never-ending unemployment and food stamps, the added taxes and regulations of Obamacare, and the attempt to ban oil drilling and regulate the coal industry out of existence, have collectively ground the U.S. economy to a halt. We will not survive four more years of Obama as CEO of this economy.

The U.S. economy is a large, diverse, failing company in desperate need of a turnaround. At this moment in history America needs a CEO with a track record of extraordinary success, job creation, and specifically- experience turning around failing companies. That person is Mitt Romney.

As Clint Eastwood said, “We own this nation.” It’s time to take it back. The future of America and our children depends on it. Their quality of life is hanging in the balance. Our back is to the wall. Obama’s defeat is that important to our economy, our freedoms, our children’s future, and ultimately, the very survival of our country.

It’s time for a coalition of Republicans, conservatives, Tea Party activists, Libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, small business owners, financial first responders (investors and business owners willing to risk our financial lives to create jobs), patriots, and common sense middle-class Americans to join together and support Mitt Romney now.

That is why I’m voting for Mitt Romney. That is why I urge all Libertarians, and Ron Paul supporters, to swallow hard, put our differences aside, and support Mitt Romney.
Vote as if your life…your business…your children’s future depends on it. Because it does.

Get yourself ready, Romney isn't going to save us from what is coming with his programs.....

get mentally prepared and get physically prepared for the coming collapse..

Many of us agree  about the crash. The best Romney might do is mitigate it a bit.  But, we don't agree that Romney=Obama. That simply is not true.  Romney doesn't hate our country, doesn't hate free enterprise, doesn't hate petro/carbon energy development, so we'll take him over Obama for now and work for a REAL Conservative or Libertarian  in the future.

Romney Concedes Defeat

news

The Republican delivers the final speech of his presidential campaign, conceding the hard-fought race to President Barack Obama.

A sad day for America. Mitt was far from my first choice for Pres., but he was far, far, better than "Obama."

The Tea Party Got It Right, Mitt Got It Wrong

In this election the Republican Party ran two wholly inoffensive blue state Republicans on a platform of jobs at a time when the economy was everyone’s chief concern and the incumbent had absolutely failed to fix the economy. And they lost.

The Monday — or Wednesday — morning quarterbacks will have a fine time debating what Mitt Romney should have done differently. The red Republicans will say that he should have been more aggressive and should have hit Obama on Benghazi. The blue Republicans will blame a lack of outreach to Latinos. Some will blame Sandy, others will blame Christie and many will point to voter fraud. And they will all have a point, but the makings of this defeat did not happen in the last two weeks; they happened in the last two years.

Mitt Romney won the primaries because he was electable. But, as it turned out, he really wasn’t electable after all. Not when the chief criteria of electability is having no opinion, no point of view and no reason to run for office except to win. Not when the chief criteria of being a Republican presidential nominee is being able to convince people that you’re hardly a Republican at all.

Romney was a star political athlete who had an excellent training regimen and coaching staff. But to win elections, you have to change people’s minds. It’s not enough to try hard or to fight hard; you have to fight for something besides the chance to round the bases. You have to wake people up to a cause.

The Republican comeback did not begin with innocuous candidates; it began with angry protesters in costumes and Gadsden flags marching outside ObamaCare town halls. The 2010 midterm election triumphs were not the work of a timorous establishment, but of a vigorous grassroots opposition. And once the Tea Party movement started the fire, the Republican establishment acted like the Tea Party had sabotaged their comeback and cut the ties with their own grassroots movement. Separated, the Republican grassroots and the Republican Party both withered on the vine.

The stunning 2010 midterm election victories happened because a conservative opposition loudly and vociferously convinced a majority of Americans that ObamaCare would be harmful to them. And then that fantastic engine of change was packed away and replaced with political consultants who were all focused on seizing the center and offending as few people as possible. But you don’t win political battles by being inoffensive. And you don’t win elections by avoiding conflict.

Is it any wonder that the 2012 election played out the way it did?

The Democrats in the Bush years were about as unlikable a party as could ever be conceived of. They were hostile, hateful and obstructionist. They spewed conspiracy theories at the drop of a hat and behaved in a way that would have convinced any reasonable person not to entrust them with a lawnmower, let alone political power. And not only were they rewarded for that by winning Congress, but they also went on to win the White House.

Why? Because dissatisfied people gravitate to an opposition. They don’t gravitate to a loyal opposition. They aren’t inspired by mild-mannered rhetoric, but by those who appear to channel their anger.

When the Republican Party sold out the Tea Party, it sold out its soul, and the only driving energy that it had. And there was nothing to replace it with. The Republican Party stopped being the opposition and became a position that it was willing to reposition to get closer to the center. Mitt Romney embodied that willingness to say anything to win and it is exactly that willingness to say anything to win that the public distrusts.

The elevation of Mitt Romney was the triumph of inoffensiveness. Romney ran an aggressive campaign, but it was a mechanical exercise, a smooth assault by trained professionals paid to spin talking points in dangerous directions. But, what if the voters really wanted a certain amount of offensiveness?

What if they wanted someone who mirrored their anger at being out of work, at having to look at stacks of unpaid bills and at not knowing where their next paycheck was coming from? What if they wanted someone whose anger and distrust of the government echoed their own?

Romney very successfully made the case that he would be a more credible steward of the economy. It was enough to turn out a sizable portion of the electorate, but not enough of it. He tried to be Reagan confronting Carter, but what was remarkable about Reagan, is that he had moments of anger and passion; electric flashes of feeling that stirred his audience and made them believe that he understood their frustrations. That was the source of Reagan’s moral authority and it was entirely lacking in Romney. And without that anger, there is no compelling reason to vote for an opposition party.

The establishment had its chance with Mitt Romney. The former Massachusetts governor was everything that they could possibly want. Moderate, bipartisan and fairly liberal. With his business background, he could make a perfect case for being able to turn the economy around. They had their perfect candidate and their perfect storm and they blew it.

The Republican Party is not going to win elections by being inoffensive. It is not going to win elections by going so far to the center that it no longer stands for anything. It is not going to win elections by throwing away all the reasons that people might have to vote for it. It is not going to win elections by constantly trying to accommodate what it thinks independent voters want, instead of cultivating and growing its base, and using them as the nucleus for an opposition that will change the minds of those independent voters.

The Republican Party has tried playing Mr. Nice Guy. It may be time to get back to being an opposition movement. And the way to do that is by relearning the lessons of the Tea Party movement. The Democratic Party began winning when it embraced the left, instead of running away from it. If the Republican Party wants to win, then it has to embrace the right and learn to get angry again.

Yes, Mitt refused to take on the tough issues with :Obama," refused to close the deal, refused to call him out for his many impeachable crimes, document fraud, even ineligibility for office.  As all you who read this site regularly know, I was not in favor of Mitt as nominee, but he is far, far better than Obama, in character, ability/competence, allegiance to the U.S. and political views.

Here's what America voted for:

In summary, "Obama":

- Is unqualified, arrogant, incompetent, anti-Constitution, anti-life, anti-(real) marriage anti-free enterprise, anti-energy, anti-Christian, anti-American

- Has toxic beliefs, toxic associates, toxic policies

- Has a terrible record, poor performance on economy, security, social issues

- Has committed numerous impeachable offenses

- Is not even eligible to hold the office

Impeachable Offenses (partial listing- tell us more!)

- Illegal Libyan war

- Possible illegal wars in Mali, Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan and elsewhere

- Illegal firing of Inspector-General Walpole

- Failure to Enforce immigration law

- Failure to enforce DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act)

- Ignoring two orders to resume Gulf oil drilling permits

- Ignoring multiple orders to stay Obamacare implementation

- Violating 1st Amendment freedom of religion in implementing Obamacare

- Failing to enforce election laws

- Multiple illegal EPA orders on CO2, enforcement of made-up regulations not backed by Congress

- Illegally overturning Black Panther voter intimidation conviction

- Possibly bribery to buy Obamacare passage votes

- Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal

- Ceding rights over control of our economy to IMF, via “Special Drawing rights”

- Possible complicity in over $16 trillion in illegal commitments by Federal Reserve, involving U.S. obligations

- Felony Document/Identity Fraud

- Circumventing Congressional oversight via unprecedented scope of “Czars” and illegal recess appointments

- Illegal arrest, torture, killing of American citizens, without warrants, charges, habea corpus, trials and other due process

- Multiple illegal “Executive Orders” and “signing statements”

- BenghaziGate treason and cover-up

- Interfering in Kenyan politics, in violation of the Logan Act

"We should never despair, our situation before has been unpromising and has changed for the better, so I trust, it will again. If new difficulties arise, we must only put forth new exertions and proportion our efforts to the exigency of the times." --George Washington, letter to Philip Schuyler, 1777

Amen



Dear Arnie,

A little after midnight on election night, I received a call from a close friend who needed someone to talk to and knew I’d be awake.

I could hear his voice shaking as he asked me to make sense of the results we were both watching come in from the polls. 

Even as radical as President Obama was during his first term, American voters still rewarded him with four more years. 

I certainly understand what he was feeling

During that moment, I remember struggling to find the right words to say. 

“Taking on incumbents isn’t easy,” I said. 

“It’s hard to compete with Obama phones.” 

Of course, all of that is true. 

But I remember my words ringing hollow at that moment and perhaps they do now, as well

Much is going to be written in the next several days about “what went wrong.” 

And I suspect, ultimately, more focus will rightly be put on the Republican Presidential candidate’s shortcomings and shifting principles -- including on our gun rights. 

The truth is, to defeat any incumbent, every “i” must be dotted and every “t” crossed. 

Candidates who aren’t able to show a clear contrast often have a tougher time

Based on the state our country is in right now with President Obama in office, I know many folks wanted to look past those facts. 

I don’t blame them. 

But at the end of the day, I know they would have much preferred a candidate they could be more excited about. 

Unfortunately, because the top of the ticket failed to generate enough enthusiasm among grassroots gun rights activists, pro-gun candidates across the country suffered.

However, there was some good news in a few Congressional races. 

Thomas Massie (KY), Steve Daines (MT), Steve Stockman (TX) and Steve King (IA) all responded to NAGR's Candidate Survey 100% pro-gun and all defeated anti-gun challengers.

Of course, now President Obama and his anti-gun pals are claiming a mandate

The truth is, he has anything but. 

Despite a flawed opposition, President Obama still received only a little over 50% of the vote. 

But that doesn’t mean gun-grabbers won’t rush to cash in with anti-gun schemes like:

*** The United Nations Gun Ban. I had hoped November 6 would be the death-knell for this outrageous anti-gun scheme. But instead, these next several months will be critical to defeating its onslaught;

*** A new “Assault Weapons” Ban. President Obama came out in support of a ban during the presidential debates, and this will likely be a top item on his agenda in his new term;

*** Mandatory “psychological screening” to be able to carry a concealed weapon or even buy a firearm. After the Colorado shooting earlier this year, anti-gun activists believe they have a ready-made excuse and politicians will fall in line for their new schemes.

Of course, this won’t be all. 

The good news is, thanks to the generous support of good folks like you, the National Association for Gun Rights has already proven it can stand toe-to-toe with President Obama and his anti-gun pals and WIN. 

This isn’t the first time we’ve had our backs against the wall after all

After the 2008 elections, with control of the White House, the U.S. House and nearly a filibuster-proof Senate, gun-grabbers and their allies in Congress believed they could ram virtually any bill they could dream up into law. 

Unlike many who were urging “compromise,” we didn’t go to President Obama with our tail between our legs begging for him to go easy on us. 

We mobilized millions of Americans from all over the country to send a loud-and-clear message to EVERY politician -- lay off our gun rights or pay the price at the polls

It worked. 

Despite their best efforts, the gun-grabbers couldn’t overcome our grassroots strength. 

Against all odds, you and I beat back the U.N.’s dangerous “Small Arms Treaty,” a new “Assault Weapons Ban” -- not to mention ammo and magazine bans that reared their ugly heads after the recent tragedy in Colorado. 

Today, the National Association for Gun Rights is the fastest-growing pro-gun organization in America

Our take-no-prisoners style is turning heads in Washington, D.C., paving the way for even more victories in the future. 

But Arnie, to say nothing of the lame duck session of Congress, you and I are about to enter an absolutely crucial period. 

The gun-grabbers are not going to wait around to try and ram new anti-gun schemes into law. 

So in the coming weeks and months, I’m going to be counting on your support like never before

Mentally, I know this is hard. 

For the past four years, gun rights activists have stood with NAGR as we’ve beat back the worst of the gun-grabbers’ schemes. 

Virtually everyone I talked to wanted this nightmare to be over. 

They wanted to rest easy for a change. 

They wanted November 6 to bring everything to an end. 

That didn’t happen. 

One thing I have learned over the years is that letting pressure off politicians -- of either party -- even for a second, means you could lose everything

So our job is to remain vigilant. 

Our job is to remain 100% committed to the protection and expansion of our gun rights. 

Our job is to make sure we never let our guard down for ONE SECOND to give the gun-grabbers an opening for new schemes. 

In the coming weeks and months, I’m going to be counting on your help like never before to help me send a message . . . 

There is NO Obama anti-gun mandate from the American people

And politicians who try to undermine our gun rights will pay the price with their political careers. 

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President


P.S. Gun-grabbers are already claiming an anti-gun mandate for President Obama.

It’s up to you and me to show them they’re dead wrong. 

Please chip in $10 or $20 to help the National Association for Gun Rights fight to protect our gun rights right away! 

Mitt Romney made his mistakes. John McMush made his mistakes. The Repuklican party made its mistakes. All intentional of course. Don't rile the body politic. Predigest the pabulum...make sure to leave no taste. Turn it into an issue of quantitative adjustment, not qualitative overhaul. And afterwards, everyone smile, be happy, and C03xis+. We all belong to our benevolent master, the government.

 

But it is the people who made the biggest mistake. They made it today. They made it yesterday. They made it over the span of the Republic to date. They made it, as all people do, because they are people and cannot be bothered to think about anything deeper than silky salon hair and pointy shoes. Always been that way, always will be that way.

 

But this of course is much much bigger than your average blip on the radar of humanity, because THESE people were given a priceless gift, paid for in blood, consequence in part of some of the most striking, fortuitous, and fruitful conditions ever bestowed by the Creator in one world's life, resulting in the birth of the most free, most fruitful, most moral, most God-loving country the earth has ever seen. And they pissed it away for a cell phone. Very human. Very understandable. Very sickening. Yet that is the story of the Children of Israel, forever fragmented, forever wandering, forever fishing for minnows while standing on the head of a whale, and then consumed by that whale.

 

When will it happen again? Who knows? But we all know that the conditions that obtain in today's world and in today's America are not conducive to free thought and moral action. They are conducive to the rodents and sewage we see on the political stage and in the paper every day. This is the long night of the whore, which Americans have steadily invited into their homes over the decades and now have finally made a permanent place for amongst themselves. And they are no longer Americans because of it.

 

But God knows. God sees, and God waits. But I don't think for too much longer. The financial Tsar Bomba is just about to detonate and the caliphate is preparing to receive its 12th imam. The story is unfolding before our eyes. Just be patient. There will be a day, and I believe soon. Put your faith in the Lord. And to whatever be God's will, I say Amen. Come in all glory.

“consequently, that the ultimate right of the parties to the Constitution (i.e. the States), to judge whether the compact has been dangerously violated, must extend to violations by one delegated authority as well as by another--by the judiciary as well as by the executive, or the legislature.” Virginia Assembly Report 1800, James Madison. 

If a nation can't define its boundaries, who comes in and on what terms, then it can't sustain itself culturally, financially, politically, morally and with security.  It's not a nation.- G. Miller 

McCain remarks from inside the Egy territory to the W.Post insults the Egy sovereignty.we consider him persona non grata.an unwelcome person— Egyptian Cabinet (@Cabinet_eg) August 6, 2013

"A lawyer is a person who knows the law" (Black’s Law Dictionary & other.) "It is said that all persons are presumed to know the law, meaning that ignorance of the Law excuses no one." (16 AM JUR 2D Sec. 178, 256.) Therefore all persons are presumed to be Lawyers.- Randy Due (illegally klidnapped by FBI and detained) 

A federal government which does not derive its lawful and limited authority from the Constitution of the United States is by definition an occupation government and criminal regime.  It’s authority is null and void and no one is bound by any rule of law to obey it.  --Donald L. Cline

When Party Loyalty Demands You Support a Creep, It's Time to Walk Away-- Jim Geraghty

Everybody is still talking about the other baby, the royal baby. In fact, I saw that President Obama released a statement congratulating Prince William and Kate Middleton on the birth of their son. Then he said, “And whatever you do — hang on to that birth certificate.” - Jimmy Fallon

“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”-- Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Bounel Soebarkah

Solution to the problem in Egypt :

They want a new Muslim leader, Give them ours. 

The administration’s attempt to intimidate Fox News and its employees will not succeed and their excuses will stand neither the test of law, the test of decency, nor the test of time. We will not allow a climate of press intimidation, unseen since the McCarthy era, to frighten any of us away from the truth.

"There are 27 amendments in the Constitution but only one says 'shall not be infringed,'" Steve Toth said. "The Second Amendment is the amendment that keeps the people free."

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison 

"When you disarm the people, you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred." - Niccolo Machiavelli

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” - "Obama", 2008

"A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."

This country does not need to have a conversation about how many bullets should go in a clip. It does need to have a conversation about how many parents should go in a family. It needs to talk about the ghettos of Obamerica and have a serious conversation about broken families and generational dependency. It needs to have a conversation about funneling new immigrants from broken parts of the world into areas already suffering from high levels of unemployment and street violence.- Daniel Greenfield

Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants and debt is the money of slaves.- Traditional

Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." -- Thomas Jefferson

“Disarmament of the populace is always the first step to depriving them of their civil rights and human rights…many African-Americans and women are actively assaulting the very document that first secured their own freedom... if you do not believe in the Bill of Rights, then you are not, at heart, an American.” – Mike Adams

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes

So now that there is a new tragedy the president wants to have a “national conversation on guns”. Here’s the thing. Until this national conversation is willing to entertain allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons, then it isn’t a conversation at all, it is a lecture. – Larry Correia'

During his 1956 presidential campaign, a woman called out to Adlai Stevenson: Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person! Stevenson called back: That's not enough, madam, we need a majority.

The economy is so bad, MSNBC had to lay off 300 Obama spokesmen. - Jay Leno

“What we’re watching here today is the equivalent of Woodward and Bernstein helping Nixon cover up Watergate,” he said. “The mainstream media is Woodward and Bernstein. Watergate is Benghazi. Except this time, Woodward and Bernstein are helping Nixon cover it up.”-- Russ Limbaugh

Lets see if I have this straight...Former President Bill Clinton ... who lied to his own wife... was convicted of perjury ... disbarred from practicing law in his home state... an admitted philanderer ... who "Never had sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky" ... Impeached by the US House of Representatives ... is giving testimonials for Barrack Obama's character and intentions!!!???  Is this a great country or what!?

 "Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonalds and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. It's the guy cooking the burger that should get the credit, not the clown."

referring to 10-3-12 debate: "Obama made a lot of good points tonight. Unfortunately, most of them were for Romney." - Bill Maher, million dollar Obama donor

How can we stand up to someone that creates a 100 dollar Federal Reserve (FR) note for 2 cents and uses the face value of the note of 100 dollars to buy a 100 dollar U.S. Security where the government has to pay them 4% in interest at the end of the year? A yearly cost of 4 FR notes where it only cost the FR 2 cents to print.

This is the biggest Conspiracy you may ever encounter and this started sometime around 1913. Yes, your parents and their parents had so much of their time stolen from them at a cost of 2 pennies. And the National Debt is one big fraud. And this is not just in the United States but the whole world.- Steven Pattison

“Can you imagine a nation founded on the principles of God is being taken over by a party that despises God, denies God’s existence and wants to stab Israel in the back in order to support the Islamists who would kill the Jews and drive them out of the Middle East?”- - Michael Savage

"WE own this country, and when someone doesn't do the job "we have to let them go."- Clint Eastwood at RNC

"If you've got a business -- you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen”- Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through the process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”
- President American Bankers Association, 1924

"I think it is wonderful that Eric holder is making sure that Mexicans' second amendment rights are preserved!" - Bobby Florenz 

“My father was a hardcore conservative and a straight line Republican voter before he died. Now he votes Democrat.” (-Unknown)

Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.' Obama is under the mistaken impression that America's symbol is the bald ego." --The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto

 ‘In years to come there is going to be information that will come out that Obama was not the man who made the call. He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander- in-chief so his secret is safe.’—Chris Kyle, former SEAL sniper

Remember just a few years ago when...

...the official unemployed was at 8.4 million instead of 12.4 million?

...the U.S. debt was at 9.5 trillion instead of 15.5 trillion?

...gas was $1.89 a gallon?

...the U.S. was friends with Isreal?

...food Stamp Recipients was at 29 million instead of 46 million?

...U.S. Astronauts didn't have to travel with Russians to go into space?

...our country's credit rating was a Triple AAA rating?

"Apparently, I'm supposed to be more angry about what Mitt Romney does with his money than what Barack Obama does with mine."- David Burge

Rep. Randy Neugebauer put the burden into perspective: “It will take over 24 million man hours to comply with Dodd-Frank rules per year. It took only 20 million to build the Panama Canal.”

"Sixty-one percent of debt issued by the Treasury is bought by the Federal Reserve -- which is to say the left hand of the U.S. Government is lending money to the right hand of the US Government. ... Nonetheless, in a land where every mewling babe in the American nursery is born with a debt burden of just under $200,000, the president brags that only his party is 'compassionate' to have no plan whatsoever even to attempt to do anything about this, no way, no how, not now, not ever." --columnist Mark Steyn

Isn't it amazing how every facet of Sergeant Bales life,  high school, college, employment, why he left his employment, his brother’s employment, his wife’s employment, real estate holdings, a missed house payment , a missed promotion etc., is exposed within a week and the same fact finders can't find comparable info on the most powerful man in the world in three plus years ?

"Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves."---- Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th US President

"The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and for people, equally in war and peace, and it covers with its shield of protection all classes of men, at all times and under all circumstances. No doctrine involving more pernicious consequences was ever invented by the wit of men that any of its great provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government."

– Ex Parte Milligan (1866)

 

Permit me to hint whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of foreigners into the administration of our national government ; and to declare expressly that the command in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on any but a natural born citizen.
