Don’t Condemn the Confederate Flag… Washington Still Fears It!

March 19, 2013

Someone told me the Confederate Flag was a symbol of racism. Bah! Fact is they fell into the spin that has been around only since more recent times, as people in the 1860’s and early 1900’s KNEW why the Civil War was fought. And even though it is in black and white, SOME people choose the Romanticised version, which paints the North as the Glorious Freedom Fighters for the Enslaved Negroes of the South.
The myth has long been dispelled about the war being fought to free the slaves. It started for reasons from Theological and Political differences, to Industry and Taxation. And, the irony of it all is that the government is not valid without the consent of the governed, a principle set forth in the Constitution. When the South seceded, they didn’t declare war, the North did. And, “I am for preserving to the States the powers not yielded by them to the Union,” Thomas Jefferson claimed. “If there be any among us who wish to dissolve the Union… let them stand undisturbed, ” Jefferson said in his “First Inaugural Address” in 1800. Virginia, the two Carolinas, and Georgia funded 3/4 of the expenses of running the Federal Government. The tariffs were heavier on the South and they were getting nothing in return. It was TAXES and import DUTIES that brought about secession, not slavery. And, if it had been about slavery, all the south would have to have done was accept the ORIGINAL 13th amendment to have slavery protected for all time, in 1861. It was about the North envying the South’s prosperity, and fearing they would take it with them when they left. Lincoln saw as much and claimed, “I can’t let them go. Who would pay for the government?” Lincoln knew who was in charge of the government he headed: “In saving the Union, I have destroyed the republic. Before me I have the Confederacy which I loath. But behind me I have the bankers which a fear.” About The Emancipation Proclamation Abraham Lincoln claimed in 1862, “If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it.” He didn’t care about slaves or slavery but union and maintaining power. He said, ” I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about, in any way, a social and political equality of the White and Black races, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with White people. I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the White and Black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race.”  Whew… The ORIGINAL White Supremacist! Like I said…it wasn’t about Freedom or Equality for the Black population. It was about the same things we are fighting NOW, with the spendthrifts in Washington. Taxation, destroying our prosperity, and basically being enslaved by the government to fund the government and their expenditures, and even then, their redistribution of the wealth. It was taking from the South, to fund expansion, industrialization, and failed ventures. The bankers were looking at huge losses if the South wasn’t paying the import taxes, and the Government was looking at collapsing because if the South seceded, it had no money to run. It’s always been about the wealth, and taking that wealth from the South. That is what the Confederate Flag is a Battle Standard for. Not in support of Slavery. That is the history written by the winner…the spin.The same spin and bias this administration is feeding America as they tax heavier, and further encroach on individual rights. As they become divisive on every level…religious, political, racial, and economical. There is strength in the Confederate flag, and spirit that even Washington fears, today. That’s where those of us that cling to our guns and Bibles are coming from, and Obama knows it. And it isn’t about race , for MOST of us, but about individual Freedoms, and Rights GUARANTEED under the Constitution that Obama and his Marxist minions have no respect for.  And, as an afterthought… He compared himself to Lincoln, and I’ll give him this…He cares nothing for the black population. He is using them to further his agenda,  just as Lincoln USED them to further his. And, somewhere in history the “Glorious Lie” will be told of how he freed the minorities AGAIN, and gave them the rich man’s wealth. And, meanwhile, this administration prepares for war on its own citizens, again, as indicated by the purchase of ammunition, weaponry, riot tanks, and recent legislation. All these things because the taxpayer–the wealthy landowner–is tired of the Government doing the same thing NOW, that it was doing then to force the secession of states in 1860 and 1861. My God, people, we have states threatening secession, NOW! And, once again, the truth about why is being twisted… We are called racists, rednecks, Tea Baggers, and anything despicable the Marxists can think of,  and because they can’t dispel the truth with ridicule, they write their own propaganda and history.  If you want to know what the Confederate Flag really stands for, it is kind of a representation of  “Never Say Die Spirit”. The good ol’ boys and their mud slingin’, BBQ, fatback, hunting, fishing, gun toting,  “a country boy can survive”, and see you in church on Sunday way of life, where you take care of your neighbors in need because it’s right, not because the Government became their lifelong provider. See, it’s also about values like honor, honesty, and believing in some kind of work ethic. That is what the Confederate flag represents. It’s what is left of the American Spirit, right now, I think. So, don’t attack my Confederate Flag… I think that in the not too distant future, you just may be glad to see it coming, and proud of what it stands for.


Obama Has His Agenda: Compare To 1938 And The Austrian Annexation–By Hitler

January 14, 2012

So, some of you, that don’t read and understand “legalese”, seem to think the new NDAA Law does not apply to American Citizens. Let me explain that it does, and can be used against you. All that is required is the ACCUSATION of impropriety, or some form of conspiracy, or terrorism and they can STRIP you of your citizenship, under the law… Timing of the Law’s passage is right in line with too many other FREEDOM STEALING propositions, a fake shooting at the White House (testing), and the perfect MAJOR Crisis they will need to declare martial law. I am reading a most interesting dissection of the NDAA’s Legalese-Double Speak. I will post it on this blogspot, shortly. First, though…Read the following-Please. If you doubt that the same thing can happen here, then you aren’t listening to the Progressive Democrats (Socialists) in the Congress, and the President, or to the major scheming that Hillary is doing with the UN to take away our guns, and increase taxes on us for everything from use of energy, to the air we breathe–literally, and trying SOOOOO hard to treaty away our right to bear arms. They are selling our sovereignty to the UN, or better, paying them to take it away, since we are the largest Payers into the UN. After reading this article, please read the breakdown of the Double Speak on the NDAA, and try to understand how it can be applied to ANY person living in this country… Although the “kill” part shouldn’t worry you. If Obama and his henchmen haven’t killed you, yet, they will probably wait until they have you in a FEMA camp, because Lord only knows, they haven’t had a problem killing people to silence them for talking about Obama’s past. Too many in a close circle of friends, and acquaintances are dead for it to be coincidental–and they all had a TALE TO TELL, and were trying to warn of what and who this man really WAS and IS. They were silenced. I have convinced a few Liberals to re-think what they thought to be true–at least to wake up and evaluate what MIGHT be happening. All I can say, is if you draw the lines between this woman’s experiences, and what Obama is doing — along with the NDAA, your chances are better for ending up in a FEMA camp, detained and stripped of your citizenship without due process.

This is a SCARY piece of HISTORY.

Read & perhaps learn something new from HISTORY and “CHANGE”.

America truly is the Greatest Country in the World.
By: Kitty Werthmann

What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or will ever read in history books.

I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide – 98% of the vote. I’ve never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.

In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs. My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.

The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other. Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna, Linz, and Graz, were destroyed. The people became desperate and petitioned the government to let them decide what kind of government they wanted.

We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living. Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group — Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back. Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.

After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.

Hitler Targets Education – Eliminates Religious Instruction for Children:

Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang “Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,” and had physical education.

Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail. The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free. We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

My mother was very unhappy. When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination. I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing. Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler. It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

Equal Rights Hits Home:

In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death. Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

Soon after this, the draft was implemented. It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps. During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys. They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines. When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat. Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

Hitler Restructured the Family Through Daycare:

When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children.. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

Health Care and Small Business Suffer Under Government Controls:

Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna . After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

We had consumer protection. We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

“Mercy Killing” Redefined:

In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated. So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work. I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van. I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months. They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

The Final Steps – Gun Laws:

Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.

After World War II, Russian troops occupied Austria. Women were raped, preteen to elderly. The press never wrote about this either. When the Soviets left in 1955, they took everything that they could, dismantling whole factories in the process. They sawed down whole orchards of fruit, and what they couldn’t destroy, they burned. We called it The Burned Earth. Most of the population barricaded themselves in their houses. Women hid in their cellars for 6 weeks as the troops mobilized. Those who couldn’t, paid the price. There is a monument in Vienna today, dedicated to those women who were massacred by the Russians. This is an eye witness account.

“It’s true… those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

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.


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.
