What I’ve Learned

April 28, 2010

Many years ago, when I was 6, I was attending an elementary school in Alamogordo, New Mexico. While standing in the lunch line, a teacher asked several different children who their parents were voting for in the election between Goldwater and Johnson. So many children said Johnson, and when I was asked, I said I didn’t know–maybe Johnson, maybe Goldwater, but I didn’t know. I told my mother on arrival home that I had been asked and what I said. I was told then that the teachers had no business asking what party my parents were affiliated with or which person they were voting for. And, that my parents were not voting for Johnson. I have heard over the years that as young adults people tend to be more liberal in their thinking and politics and that they become more conservative over their lifetime. After much retrospect, I find that I don’t really believe that. At least it wasn’t true of me and many youth of that time. Our values were established by the influence of our parents. Lying was wrong. Education was a requirement. Working for a living was mandatory and education would determine if you had a good job later in life. Getting pregnant out of wedlock was taboo, not the norm. History included the Founding Fathers, the Revolution, religious freedom as the reason for founding our country, and the Tea Party–as a protest against “taxation without representation”. Now, subtly and insidiously, we are at a point where if you are ANY RELIGION other than CHRISTIAN, you have the freedom to express your beliefs. Prayer, the pledge of allegiance, the word “God”, and dicipline have been removed from schools and children are being indoctrinated into a liberal-progressive mind set. History is being re-written and twisted to brainwash our children, and new heroes are being glorified to suit the political agenda… My God, the heroes of our leaders include Mao Tse Tung and Che Guevera! The heroes of Hollywood include a madman named Chavez and the dictator Castro, whose own daughter lives in America and speaks of her father’s brutal tyranny over the people of Cuba. At any rate, after much thought, I know that I did the right thing taking my children out of school to home-school them for several reasons. First, they got a better education. I have two in college that are Dean’s list students and being offered scholarships to finish at various colleges. Next, they avoided the indoctrination into the New World Order way of thinking. The day my daughter, at 14, brought home a book they were using in class, which explained her “civil rights” in my home, I had had enough. I promptly explained to her that her rights in my home included food and water, a roof over her head, clothes on her back, and a good life as long as she followed the rules, did her chores, and attended school. Otherwise, it was my right to bust her butt, and her privilege to receive it. I managed to raise intelligent, mostly respectful children, who are now conservative young adults. Like me (and their dad) they are angry at the government that won’t listen to its people. They are outraged that we sit here and do without to make ends meet, working to the best of our ability, while others are sitting around drawing entitlements. They are angry that Mexican illegals are DEMANDING their rights in our country, and protesting in our streets while throwing rocks and bottles at the police who are there to simply maintain order, and while Al Sharpton is spewing his rhetoric about civil rights. I am proud to have passed on a legacy to my children that is now being called far right, or radical, and even bigoted, just because we don’t agree with policies of a black (not AFRICAN AMERICAN, but African Arab) president and his progressive cronies. What makes me even more proud is the fact that we can protest like civilized human beings and not the animals in the news today. We don’t spit. We don’t throw rocks and bottles. And we don’t vandalize capital buildings and piss in the streets. I learned that we have to instill values and morals in our children and not allow so many people to influence their lives and thinking–in other words, we have to be their parents, and we have to raise them. As far as politics, I learned that we can never rest again and allow the government to get too big for its britches. Never again can we allow them not to represent us. And while it is OK, to complain around the coffee maker, we can’t assume that those complaints will resolve themselves without us to push the issue… We have to act on our beliefs. Furthermore, we have to be the example for our children, and they need to be made aware of what makes this the greatest country in the world, and that is the differences. I learned that we have to stand up for those differences before we become those other countries… over taxed without representation, socialized, and with an indigent, illegal population to absorb our tax dollars in entitlements, while putting our other populations including minorities out of work. And, the final eureka moment I had is this… Once you empower the government to pass into law all the things that take your freedoms, it becomes a harder fight to get those freedoms back, because now there are unconstitutional laws in place to be enforced against you. I continue to hope for a resolution to the idiocy in Washington through the polls in November. People are seemingly patient to wait until then. God help us all if this progressive agenda continues, or if the Liberals pull some kind of amnesty for all the illegals, here again since the last amnesty, to weight the vote for the socialists in power at this time. Americans won’t take much more…Peacefully.

HOW DID WE COME TO THIS?

April 27, 2010

We are still spending gazillions of dollars. We are being governed by an elitist group of socialists. And, we are damaged to the point that even though Americans have awakened (for the most part), the repair and recovery of our country, Constitution, Laws, Jobs, and Economic Systems may take generations. Hopefully, not generations, if we put people in office that make the hard and honest decisions necessary to turn us around, but at the very least it will be years. We have a deficit upwards of 12 trillion dollars. That sounds like alot, I know. Now, try understanding that is just the smoke and mirrors of governmental accounting, for which you and I would go to jail if we tried to pass it off to our creditors and the IRS. Try an amount closer to 30-40 Trillion. The deficit they put out there for you to see is only the tip of the ice burg. It is what we are actuallly responsible for borrowing and spending, and accrues a nice round billion dollars a day in interest. It does not take into consideration the money we are promised, contracted, or treatied to pay out at any given time. Things like Social Security, SS Disability, Medicaid, Foodstamps, payments in the billions to developing countries, Saudi Arabia, other countries natural disasters and on, and on. Then, we have the new Health Care law to add trillions more. I could have slapped Obama when he looked up smugly, with a tongue in cheek type expression, and commented about the Tea Party protestors on April 15th that he was still waiting for them to thank him for cutting their taxes.  Is he DELUSIONAL? I mean, completely? Obviously he has some reality issues. Insurance premiums are up. The trend is that in many instances the co-pay is gone. Your premium is the same, but the insurance companies aren’t paying for anything until you reach the deductible, so forget about a 30.00 doctor visit. They’ll start paying after your deductible is reached. Now, we have other problems. Obama and his cronies are working even harder to take us into the New World Order or some type of Euro-Socialist existence. They are talking V.A.T. tax and transaction tax, banking and financial regulations, and a czar that has the power to walk into ANY company and take it over. Then, they want control of the internet and are working on getting all of your personal information. Is anyone out there aware that they have been training a special military group that will be fully functional and ready for action in October of this year–suspiciously, a month before the mid-term elections–whose job it will be to quell “civil unrest”, if needed. According to the commander of this group of US Army soldiers, when he was asked specifically who these soldiers would side with if they were ordered to confront Americans, he seemed to think that there might be a 50-50 split. He stated that fully half or more could not stand Obama–and that is paraphrased. You fools out there that are calling and asking, “Where do I sign up for my FREE health care?” are to blame for the loss of American Freedom. You with your hands out, wanting something for nothing. You that think that I owe you a living, or that anyone does. That is how we came to this. Over time our charity turned into an “Entitlement”. I always considered myself charitable. I helped those in need. I helped those that lost their jobs, were homeless, couldn’t feed their families, and donate to medical charities for children. Well, with the exception of children, I am no longer charitable. It is not my job to take care of your ass to the extent that I can’t take care of my own, or my family. And, I am probably looking at jail time after I don’t run out and buy health insurance, or pay the fines for not having it. I pay as I go. It would cost me 1000.00 or more dollars a month to insure myself and family. A doctor’s visit is around 75.00. I haven’t been sick in years, and if I go to the doctor once a year for healthy check-ups, and once or twice a year for an ailment (which rarely happens), why the hell would I want to spend 12,000.00 a year for insurance. The Obama REGIME is setting a foundation to take us to socialism. They are daily taking away the rights and privileges of Americans with some new bill, or tax, or Executive order. To those of you who were foolish enough to vote for this narcissistic, ego maniac, you sold yourselves and the rest of us down the river for hollow promises. The only truth that has come out of this conman’s mouth is that he planned to fundamentally change America. Rest assured that he has. He has grown the government, increased the debt to unheard of levels, brought the country to near bankruptcy with his unsustainable programs and spending, and alienated our one ally in the Middle East–Israel. He is a closet homosexual, illegal alien, Socialist, and a Muslem. AND, he has split this country deeply, calling us racists and bigots if we don’t agree with his policies. I don’t have to hate him because he is black. I hate him because he is arrogant, smug, and stupid. Don’t misunderstand… He is cunning and he was groomed by the Progressives, anarchists, and socialists for the specific purpose of rising to the Presidency for more than 20 years. But, he is stupid. He was NOT a scholar. He did poorly in school, especially while drugging, drinking, and partying. He has NO experience at ANYTHING except being a community organizer and activist, and he did not even actually graduate from Columbia University. This man doesn’t have the experience to train for management at McDonald’s, and he was elected as President by those of you who he promised “no taxes” to (you already pay none), and free health care (you already had it). And, anyone with one iota of sense knew from his associations, and history, that this was exactly what he planned to do. Well, I for one, will not waver when it comes to stand up for the rights of Americans. I will go the distance…whatever that distance ends up being. And, if the distance means resistance past peaceful means, so be it. All I have to say to those that voted for him is:  Don’t get in the way of the majority of the American people. If push comes to shove, and it should happen to escalate to violence, the more of you we take out the less we have to support when it’s over. That’s a sad scenario that we’ve come to… to think that we may have to fight for what we inherited from those that fought to give it to us decade after decade, and we fell asleep at the wheel and let the likes of you whiney, worthless, cowards subvert our personal rights and take over our government. It’s been in the works for a long time, beginning with the trouncing of our Christian values, followed by the indoctrination of our children, and ramming through rights and values of the amoral minority. Well, forewarned is forearmed…  Americans are taking back America. We hope to do it peacefully in November through the ballot boxes. I would suggest that the Obama Regime not try to force an Amnesty through for the illegal aliens here to swing the vote for the Democrats by shear numbers. We have had enough of the Chicago style politics and not being listened to, and I believe that would be the final straw. None of us are insurgents, but America is a volitile place, right now, and it is time to decrease government size, spending, and authority. Now, to answer how we came to this…  It happened because “IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE”. It happened insidiously, and the parts that weren’t insidious, well, “THAT WON”T AFFECT ME”.  Well, now it has piled up, and it is affecting everybody, including generations of children and grandchildren to come unless we turn it around starting in November. Please… Take the time to know your candidates. Don’t take it for granted that everyone will vote…if you don’t vote, someone else didn’t either. We need everybody… Register NOW, if you aren’t already and get your 18 year old kids registered. Make it a family event.  Don’t let anything stop you from voting. Weather can’t be an obstacle. (Death, either as it hasn’t stopped the democrats from voting, yet). No, seriously, this is probably the most important election in the HISTORY of this country. Vote. Vote. Vote.  Truth is, if you don’t, we may not even have that privilege in the future.
