Will This Be America’s Last Independence Day?


How many of you out there today are asking the same question?
Will today be America’s last Independence Day?

After three and a half years of Barack Obama the economy is in ruins. The regulations more oppressive. The government is more intrusive. And the future looks bleak.

Think of this – Just three and a half years ago–
** In President Bush’s last year in office, 2008, the deficit reached $459 billion. Today, for the third year in a row, the US deficit is over a trillion dollars (and Obama still says it’s Bush’s fault).  This is after he promised to cut the deficit in half.

** Real GDP has risen 0.8% over the 13 quarters since the Great Recession began, compared to an average increase of 9.9% in past recoveries. It is the worst recovery on record.

** On July 3, 2008 — the day before Independence Day — Barack Obama said that adding $4 trillion in debt was irresponsible and “unpatriotic.

Then he went and added an unprecedented $5 trillion.

** Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression. The jobs recession is the longest since World War II.

** Government agents are now grabbing your crotch at the airport and frisking your grandmother.

An Obama TSA agent marches away after bringing a passenger to tears at a Midwest airport.

** The Obama EPA is spying on Iowa farmers in planes but holding talks with the Taliban.

** Obama blew a trillion dollars on a stimulus and downgraded the economy.

** Since the recession ended in June 2009, the number of new enrollees on disability is twice the job growth figure.

** Obama passed the largest intrusive tax in world history while lying and calling it healthcare.

Obama wants more change. He wants more control. His plans include more devastation.
Can America really survive another four years under Barack Obama?

    From the White House to the Big House: 25 Impeachable Crimes and Counting
    Fred Dardick Tuesday, July 27, 2010

    25 Obama Crimes the House Should Investigate in 2011
    1. Convicted felon and Chicago real estate developer Tony Rezko’s purchase of land adjacent to Obama’s house in Hyde Park, IL. In 2006, Rezko sold a 10 foot strip of his property to Obama for $104,500, rendering the remainder of Rezko’s $625,000 investment too small to be developed and, for all intents and purposes, worthless.
    2. The provision of Obama campaign donor lists to ACORN in 2007 and 2008, more complete than the ones he provided to the FEC. ACORN used the lists to raise money for Obama’s election from donors who had already maxed out their legally allowable contributions.
    3. Widespread voter fraud including voter intimidation, ballot stuffing, falsified documents, and threats of violence against Hillary Clinton supporters committed by the Obama campaign and ACORN during the 2008 Democrat primary election. For more information see my CFP article How Obama Used an Army of Thugs to Steal the 2008 Democratic Party Nomination.
    4. Obama’s refusal to release his long form birth certificate which would show conclusively that he is a dual citizen and therefore not constitutionally eligible to serve as President. Obama’s college records, which have also not been released, would also contain information regarding his dual citizenship status.
    5. Protecting union interests over those of GM and Chrysler bond holders during bankruptcy proceedings, forcing investors to accept millions of dollars in losses in direct violation of bankruptcy laws, money to which they were legally entitled.
    6. Preferential treatment given to minority and women owned car dealerships by Obama administration officials as part of the auto industry bailout program and the forced closing of a disproportionate number of rural dealerships located in areas that did not vote for Obama.
    7. Unsubstantiated firing of Corporation for National and Community Service Inspector General Gerald Walpin for exposing Sacramento Mayor and Obama supporter Kevin Johnson’s misuse of an $850,000 AmeriCorps grant.
    8. Purchase of Congressional support for the passage of Obama’s healthcare bill including the “Cornhusker Kickback”, “Louisiana Purchase” and having the Department of Interior increase water allocations to the Central Valley of California to secure the votes of Democrat Reps. Dennis Cardoza and Jim Costa.
    9. Lying to the American people by promising they could keep their healthcare coverage if they wanted to, when in reality tens of millions will be forced out of their current plans.
    10. Attempted bribery of Rep. Joe Sestak with job offers to get him to drop out of the Senate primary race against Sen. Arlen Specter.
    11. Directing the EPA to unilaterally set carbon emission standards, thus bypassing Congress which opposes Obama’s energy reform bill. For more information see my CFP article Forget Cap and Trade: EPA Regulation of CO2 Emissions Will Begin in 10 Months.
    12. The Obama administration’s statement that a panel of experts had agreed with their plan for a 6 month Gulf Coast drilling moratorium, when in actuality none of them had supported the measure.
    13. Bullying BP to set up a $20 billion slush fund to compensate Gulf Coast businesses and residents affected by the oil spill, to be administered by an Obama political appointee without any judicial or congressional oversight.
    14. Implementing a third oil-drilling moratorium after the first two were thrown out of court, creating a de facto Gulf Coast offshore drilling ban in opposition to two judge’s rulings.
    15. Establishment of a commission to investigate the Gulf Coast oil spill that contains not one oil industry expert and whose transparent purpose is to push a partisan political agenda rather than investigate the cause of the disaster.
    16. Obama’s policy of intentionally not securing our nation’s borders, in opposition to Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution which calls for the President to protect states from foreign invasion, in an attempt to blackmail Republican support for comprehensive immigration reform. In essence, Obama is holding border states and residents politically hostage during a time they are being overrun by a narco-paramilitary invasion.
    17. Department of Justice illegal race based policies regarding voter fraud as exposed by former Justice attorney J. Christian Adams. This includes the dropping of voter intimidation charges against 2 Black Panthers brandishing weapons in front of a voting location in Philadelphia and the stated intention by political appointees to ignore voter crimes committed by African Americans, Latinos and other minorities.
    18. Department of Justice purposefully allowing some states to continue their disenfranchisement of military personnel serving overseas in direct opposition to the 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act, which was established in response to the more than 17,000 military votes that were not counted in the 2008 election because ballots had arrived after the deadline.
    19. Recess appointment of Donald Berwick as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services without even a token attempt to put him through the Congressional nomination process, signaling that Congress’s constitutional obligation to vet presidential appointees means nothing to Obama. The same can be said of the 30+ Obama administration czars.
    20. Spending $23 million of taxpayer money through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to support a constitutional referendum in Kenya in spite of the Siljander Amendment, which makes it illegal for the U.S. to lobby for abortion in other countries. The Kenyan referendum was partially written by Planned Parenthood and is designed to legalize abortion in that nation.
    21. The participation of the Obama administration in the firing of Sherry Sherrod from the USDA without due process because of publicized out of context remarks she made at a NAACP meeting in March 2010.
    22. The White House sham investigation of BP’s involvement in the release of the mass murdering Lockerbie bomber from prison. The Obama administration not only knew beforehand of the Scottish government’s plan to set Abdel Baset al-Megrahi free on “compassionate” grounds, they even sent a letter to Scottish authorities stating their preference for his remaining in Scotland over his transfer to a Libyan prison.
    23. The canceling of 77 properly filed oil field development contracts approved by the Bush administration by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, preventing the extraction of up to 3 trillion gallons of oil buried under Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and North Dakota, more than enough to end our dependence on foreign oil and supply the U.S. with its energy needs for hundreds of years at current consumption rates.
    24. Investigations by the Department of Homeland Security to determine the political affiliation of people making Freedom of Information Act requests and the subsequent delay and even altogether ignoring of requests made by Republican affiliated individuals.
    25. The hardest to prosecute in court, but worst crime of all that Obama has perpetrated against the American people is the economic tyranny that his socialist policies have wrecked upon our nation. While Obama has been living the life of a king, including frequent 5 star vacations, dozens of concerts at the White House and endless rounds of golf, all paid for by taxpayer money—the increased transportation and security costs alone are in the millions of dollars—he has called for the rest of us to endure economic sacrifice. The annual trillion dollar deficits and borrowing of 41 cents of every dollar of government spending by Obama is leading to unsustainable and potentially catastrophic debt.

    ROMNEY DIDN’T EVEN LAST A WEEK.

    POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – JULY 3, AD 2012 2:00 PM MST

    As promised, Romney has folded on ObamaCare too, although had I wagered money on the timing, I would have thought that he would have lasted at least a week. But apparently the revenue curve from stupid, imbecilic suckers giving Romney money in the wake of the SCOTUS decision fell off hard enough that the Romney people felt that it served no more purpose to perpetuate the repeal charade.

    Here’s the link.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/07/02/Mitt-Quit-Now-If-You-Wont-Fight

    I hope every single one of you who gave that forked-tongued jackass money feel the full shame and embarrassment of your own gullibility and obtuseness. This slackjawed sentimentalism WILL BE THE DEATH OF ALL OF US. Your rah-rah loyalty to con-artists who wrap themselves in platitudes so that you can have a “team” that makes you feel good about yourself isn’t noble or admirable. It is nauseating and disgusting. It is truly sickening to see people elevate false sentiment over truth – all for the sake of a truly shallow SOCIAL EXPERIENCE.

    Ignorance is one thing. Abject stupidity in the face of mountains of pounding evidence is another.

    -Romney wrote and implemented ObamaCare’s template in Massachusetts.

    -RomneyCare destroyed the Massachusetts economy. Romney refuses to this day to acknowledge that there is anything wrong with RomneyCare, or the economic damage it had done and continues to do to Massachusetts.

    -Romney’s top aides and inner circle were frequent visitors to the White House and were instrumental in the drafting of ObamaCare in 2009.

    -Romney has VOCIFERICOUSLY defended the concept of the mandate that people must, as a condition of their very existence, purchase a specific commodity.

    -RomneyCare funds abortion with a mere $50 co-pay and forces all people under its control to pay for contraception and sterilization, including the Church in Massachusetts. The reason you never heard anything about this is because Archbishop Sean O’Malley is a slack-jawed idiot who is a Marxist and, like most bishops today, doesn’t actually believe in Catholicism. He’s just a narcissistic, politicking little shell of a man who is desperate for worldly approval – particularly from other men. Sad but true. Someone needs to say this.

    So, not only has O’Malley not complained about the horrors of RomneyCare, but he embraces it and supports ObamaCare. And, as a result, he still gets invited to all of the fancy parties with all of the rich, powerful men whose approval his entire existence revolves around and self-esteem depends upon. And I’m sure that he also lives in complete terror of having some rich, powerful man like Mitt Romney come up to him at a party, smile, lean in, and ask, “You don’t really believe that a piece of bread turns into God, do you?” The vast majority of bishops today are embarrassed and humiliated by the Eucharist. Hence the entire problem. It all really does come down to that, whether you understand that or not. Someone has to say it.

    -Mitt Romney will never, ever repeal ObamaCare. The Congress will never, ever repeal ObamaCare. The only way to get rid of ObamaCare is a junta or civil war and the establishment of the Second American Republic. The First American Republic is dead, and it is never, ever coming back.

    I will not be celebrating Independence Day tomorrow, because to do so would be utterly hypocritical and a lie. The First Republic is dead, and to pretend that it isn’t only feeds and enables the usurpers and tyrants who are desecrating its corpse in order to give themselves the appearance of legitimacy. If I live to see the establishment of the Second American Republic, THAT date will I observe.

    The Black American Flag, flown in distress, is my flag now.

    It is amazing what a great sin will do to a nation. Because of slavery America had a grand war to confront it and the states leaving the union to continue slavery. In the end the Union was maintained and slavery abolished, but at great cost. Greater than the loss of life America lost its concept of state sovereignty. We still give it lip service, but this was the time the Federal government took over America.

    Over the years the Federal government granted itself ever greater powers. The New Deal, Great Society, and whatever we will call Obama’s rule solidified the power, while every GOP president except Reagan added to it in smaller portions.

    So now we have a Federal government that has controlled administrative states. Yes some states get out of line and are quickly punished….see AZ.

    It is time to re-establish our Federal government. I doubt this can be done through political means.

    Look, I too, am worried that Romney isn’t going to be conservative enough. But I also know that Oblamo is by far the most dangerous president input history in so many ways. At least Mitt loves this country. Oblama just uses the US as a weapon to placate other nations to make himself look good in their eyes.
    Imagine what he’ll do if he has no coming election to worry about? We will not ever b the nation we once were if he gets another term.

  • Don’t Worry, Be Happy

    YES, this is America’s LAST Independence Day – unless:

    1] American’s stop depending on their government to fund Social Security –
    2] American’s stop depending on their state/federal governments to pay subsidies to ‘workers’ who don’t work (Unemployment), agricultural entitlements (water, land, crop subsidies), bio-fuel and power subsidies, etc.
    3] America’s stop depending upon their government to feed and clothe them (foodstamps, WIC, welfare, public schools, etc.)
    4] America stops attacking people who are willing to innovate and produce goods/services for others through excessive taxes.
    5] America kicks the unions out of all public jobs, especially education where the students are no longer taught but indoctrinated.
    6] America stops killing it’s next generation of citizens via abortion, drugs and violence.
    7] America stops handing it’s sovereignty over to for foreign countries and the UN.
    8] America stops giving the liberal left a soapbox to spew their failed ideology from, regardless of the lefts political affiliation. We need a liberal Republican just as badly as we need a liberal Democrat. We need another George W. Bush just about as badly as we need another Barack Obama.

    Unless patriotic American’s are willing to get their fat asses off the couch, step out of their comfort circles and start taking political control of the local government – there can be NO HOPE. Get rid of the liberal teachers, librarians, dog catchers, etc. That is where Obama get’s his power from – the grass roots zombies, indoctrinated in American schools and funded by America’s enemies.

    Health Care (Obamacare)? That is just a symptom of a much larger problem – our citizens have been indoctrinated in liberal ideology, and taught that abundance is their ‘right’. I’m talking about old Uncle George who get’s his SS check and Susie on Food Stamps and young Johnny being indoctrinated on ‘self-esteem’ in the 4th grade, while he eats 3 meals a day at the public school.

    Now I look back on that list I just wrote down… Perhaps America’s last Independence Day – when we were really an Independent and Free people was about 90 years ago.

    President Barack Obama’s campaign is stepping up its defense of the controversial Obamacare law, pitching it as a cost-free security blanket for unmarried women, Latinos and poor people.

    The push comes shortly after Obama’s deputies argued that the public doesn’t want to hear more arguments about the far-reaching, $1.76 trillion, government-directed reorganization of the nation’s health sector.

    The president’s weekend message, for example, focused on fires in Colorado — not on the law or the Supreme Court’s June 28 decision to relabel the law’s controversial penalty as a tax.

    His weekend message followed his long-standing policy of saying little about the sensitive law, except that it provides free services to young people and women.

    Declaration of Independence not Dependence

    Now, the American people have an opportunity to reverse this course in November by electing Governor Romney and a Republican Senate. We have to stop complaining about the Supreme Court and deal with the real problem – which is President Obama. Obamacare has now been unmasked for what it really is, a massive tax increase to pay for a massive new federal entitlement program that we do not want and cannot afford.
    If you are a small business owner, a middle-class taxpayer, or if you are worried about what Obamacare will do to the quality of your health care, or if you are worried about the fact that our government is headed towards insolvency – you have only one recourse – make President Obama a one-termer. Elections do matter; this one matters a lot.

    http://www.redstate.com/bobbyjindal/2012/07/03/declaration-of-independence-not-dependence/

    But do we have a Republican Candidate that can captivate, scary but Romney because of Obama’s Immigration move on Anchor Babies and Healthcare being rule Constitutional, this is very captivating for Hispanics and Blacks.

    Romney and Romney care, and Romney saying not a tax but penalty, that is smart and he is just not saying the right things when it comes to his responses.

    I “hope” we can celebrate a victory in November and take back our independence every day.

  • Joanne

    I wonder how Obama keeps so many people quiet about the truth about him. The greatest motivator of all people is fear, and no doubt this is exactly the tactic Obama and his rotten henchmen are using. Roberts was onboard until a month ago. I wonder what exactly turned his head. I wonder how many people on both sides of the political spectrum know or think that Breitbart was murdered. Was Obama sending others the message and did they get it? You’ve got to think that when people get away with murder, you are more likely yourself to keep quiet. If you actually thought that they wouldn’t get away with it, you might be more apt to speak out, but when you see them get away with it, over and over again…..mom is the word.

  • Joanne

    Why are you all so defeated? No one has even started to fight, and you’ve thrown in the towel. The power is with the people, and if you do not believe this, then all is lost. Get out this July 4th and show Obama and all his rotten think-alikes that all is not lost, and they have not won. Obama is certainly preparing for a mass revolt; and unfortunately, people always wait until the last moment while the opposition prepares, when all seems lost, to start to fight. Human nature be damned. Fight for the country you love; fight for you lives. Pray to God!

    Obamacare – Another Stone Towards Ending Our Independence

    Before too long, probably well within my lifetime, the government will act in all of our “benefit” and they will fully socialize the healthcare industry; thus killing the evil health insurance companies, and using this “necessary” act to justify a massive tax increase upon all of us; and at the same time making many more of us become all that more dependent on the beneficent Uncle Sam, who will give us everything that he thinks we need. And despite all of this we will still joyously sing the final words of our national anthem, “… land of the FREE and the home of the brave,” not to mention whenever we say the pledge of allegiance and say, “… with LIBERTY (which means freedom) and justice for all;” and yet we will fail to see the irony in those words as we allow for more and more government intrusion (taking away of our liberties/freedom) into more and more of our daily lives. Chew on that as you enjoy the coming Independence Day holiday, but you probably know it simply as the Fourth of July and don’t give the independence thing a second thought.

    Lamenting The Lost Legacy Of Independence Day

    [..]
    Little by little, the home of the brave and the land of the free has become a nation of rent-seeking dependents clamoring for their share of state largess. Even before the latest entitlement blowout called Obamacare, we crossed the line where more than half of Americans receive some kind of assistance from the government every month, paid for by the fewer than half that still pay income taxes. As we move into the future and the number of dependents grows while the taxpayer pool shrinks, we call the result social justice rather than its old name: theft.

    Our forefathers shed blood rather than render unto King George. Yet today we madly mortgage our nation’s future to foreign powers, piling debt upon debt without limit or thought as to how it will be repaid. These debts ensnare our children and grandchildren even as we stop having them, confident in the knowledge that the government will take care of us in our old age, so why bother with the trouble and expense?

    If we were still a nation capable of shame with enough intellectual integrity to call things as they are, if we hadn’t debauched our language as badly as our currency, if we had the courage to look in the mirror and see how woefully we have squandered our Founders’ legacy, this Fourth of July would be a day not of celebration but of atonement

    Give some thought to what we have lost as we mark another In Dependence Day. May providence have mercy on our nation, lest we end up getting what we deserve.

    “Will This Be America’s Last Independence Day?”

    To even ask this question is to realize we are facing some very serious danger ahead. And we all must look inside ourselves and ask at this time in history what part do I play to defend Liberty!

    We all must face the hard reality of where we are today, put aside any particular bias against possible allies who will stand and defend Liberty!

    It’s time to be men and women of Action! Action that we all know down deep may very well require the supreme sacrifice!

    I do not mean to be offensive to Liberty’s brethren, but it just may be time to stop listening to our favorite talk show hosts! If these men and women have not by now engaged their audiences to action against America’s enemies or they themselves have not assumed the responsibility to lead in resisting America’s enemies, they are a waste of our time!

    We must all ask ourselves why do we continue to support and give allegience to these individuals? What have they accomplished? Have they even been effective in stopping America’s enemies at all?

    Some of these folks have amassed some very large fortunes thanks to us! How much of their fortunes do they put into the fight to save America? You know the old putting your $$ where your mouth is!

    It is time to put aside All passive activity that accomplishes nothing and our enemies just laugh at!

    If we are honest with ourselves the 2012 election will solve nothing! The political system of voting and law making is broken. The legal, the education, the media, the entertainment, law enforcement is broken! The Bill of Rights has no meaning anymore! Most disturbing of all is the Church is broken!

    I have said before if your pastor or priest refuses to stand against evil and will simply stand by and watch America go down get the Hell out of that place! These are Not men who love God or their Neighbor!

    Obama is the culmination of what our enemies have had planned at least from the beginning of the 20th century! He is the face of their agenda!

    If we honestly want to win this war against America’s enemies we must follow the example of the Founders!

    This talk is not defeatism and know one is throwing in the towel! People are starting to face reality and what must be done and the preparation to due what must be done!

    Here is an interesting post that is great food for thought….and action!

    An Independence Day fit for mourning — and fighting. Have a Happy 4GW Fourth!

    “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
    prov.9:10

    Obama has literally depress this nation. His ideology has been that we must give to everyone who needs us. Sounds great but in his case he is giving through US.

    He has taken from those who have to give to the have nots. Sounds like Robin Hood but it is not. Americans only wanted Jobs and wanted to show just how independent they are but jobs never came, homes were lost and a future that was suppose to look bright is now a flicker.

    The spending continue by Obama while we had to cut back. We have had freedom in the past and we are still only hoping we can have a nation in which those freedoms are greater though jobs, integrity, pride and when that pride is lost we lose our freedom.

    Americans are discouraged and this hasn’t been more evident since Obama took the oath of office. He took the job of many before him to lead, protect and serve. He has failed and we are feeling we are losing our hope for recovery and our children will be denied a great future.

    Obama has given us astronomical DEBT, Failures and a Historical National massive healthcare Tax. Obama has made us feel less safe and more vulnerable.

    We will celebrate the Fourth but it will be for all those who served and die for our freedom and we will pray for our nation that is hanging on by a thread and rebuild it.

    But without Obama, Vote him out of office so we will see a Brighter and true Independence Day for us and our kids.

    Our strengths will endure and so will our freedoms, once Obama is out of office.

    Republican politicians are just progressives in different clothing. Their ends may come slower than if a Democrat were in office, but they end up being the same ends none the less.

    The founders dream of government design was known to become a nightmare if:
    1. People failed to be moral
    2. People failed to learn American civics and responsibilities
    3. If people found they could gain access to the coffers.

    Even with a sweep of the elections providing a Republican congress and presidency I see no future for America that could in anyway be considered under our Constitution.

    The US dollar will cease to be the world’s currency one day soon and all our machinations about Social Security, Obamacare, Medicare, et al. will be moot. When this day comes we will be struggling to feed ourselves. People will turn on people. And I predict that this will lead us into a new government that people who love individual freedom most fear.

    Debt has consequences.

    My American flag, flown every day, is looking ratty. I swore I would not replace it until Obama was removded from office. Yesterday, I bought a new flag, which I hope and pray will fly on November 7th.

  • djb

    Wife and I noticed today on our way forth and back to Church that there are only about 10% of the flags flying that we have seen in every previous year. I think many people have decided that we are in fact no longer truly free, (rightfully so), and are staging a “quiet” protest. I think that LAST year was the last free Independance Day. This year, most people see,
    consciously or not, that we are no longer free, and are not flying the flag.

    1. Keeping your communist illegal kids on your policy until they reach the age of 26.

    2. Eliminating the lifetime cap on benefits for freeloaders.

    3. Stopping insurance companies from canceling your policy if you get sick.

    4. Lowering the cost of care and medication for Medicare recipients

    The America that we fought for is in the corner in its underwear, crying and puking in shame and humiliation. The Muslim usurpers have victory for now.

    Weimar Republic. America is headed down the same road. Obama is taking us there with the pedal on the floor. Romney wants to lift off about a half inch. Same basic direction,different driver.

    That said,I’ll take the slowest trip over the edge of the cliff. At least it gives us a little more time to try to wake people up before we get there. This nation has no hope under another four years of Obama and precious little hope under four years of Romney. The damage Obama has done may already be too great to repair.

    But the government isn’t totally to blame. America now has too many moochers on the government teat that prefer the government cage to freedom and personal responsibility. Until the entitlement mentality of many of the American people changes,we will always be headed in the direction we are in now in spite of who is in the White House.

  • Mario

    I’ll vote in November, not that it will do any good, romney is just an obama lite, maybe even weaker, the Republic Our Fathers and Forefathers fought and died for is also dead, we have become a socialist nation without one shot being fired. From this date forward July 4th should be known as “Independence Remembrance Day”. We are a truely a dictatorship and nothing will change with a new president. Only one thing, and I believe this with my whole heart can help us restore our Nation, term limits. Two terms, need not be served concurrently, never to be elelected to this position or an equal position in one’s life time. And I recommend it be put in place in every elected office, in every state, county and city seat. We must rid ourselves of career politicians, they are the disease that feeds off the American people. Set term limits, have the states govern their salary (NOT THEMSELVES!!!) and demand they meet with the people of their state a minimum of twice a month to allow US to air our grievances. You want your nation back, than set term limits.

    Ever since the day BHO was elected I’ve had a black ribbon on my front porch, for mourning for this country. It will not come down until he is defeated or a president elected who holds dear our Declaration of Independence and Constitution.

    Great 4th of July post Jim –

    Whenever you are discouraged about the state of American freedom under this Administration, have a Scott Walker moment. It was the front line that opened the wave of hope for other principled conservative patriots in this coming Mother of All Presidential Election Wars. Maybe the sounding bell was Rick Santelli’s famous 2009 rant on the trading floor – “We are T(axed) E(nough) A(lready),” but without the conservative alternative media like Jim Hoft, Breitbart, Loesch, Malkin, Levin, Hewitt, Ross, Limbaugh, Hanson, NRO, Weekly Standard and all the others too numerous to list – we would never be where we are today as we are committed and determined to defeat Obama and take back the Senate (not to mention to elect principled state and local legislators who will no longer go along with the status quo of the recent Orwellian overreach of government into our lives and wallets).

    Try to remember what victory feels like when citizens elect a leader with conservative principles – in spite of the fact that the media is fixed for the other side and big powerful interests (the government employee unions.

    The people of Wisconsin saved the state in June when they rejected – for the second time in 18 months – the big government union movement to recall Scott Walker because he walked the talk right out of the gate as a new Governor and gave us change we really can believe in – fiscal responsibility and the hope of a sustainable future where we have to admit we can’t keep all the promises we have made to government pensioners.

    In November, the people of Wisconsin will save this entire nation. As will the people of Ohio and Florida and maybe a few other battleground states…..because this is a war. We didn’t start it – but we aren’t going to let the Palace Guard Media pick the next president of the United States – that’s for sure.

    Andrew Breitbart knew we were in a war way before most of us saw it:

    The question that I have, myself is if Americans will simply sit there and take it until it is accomplished, with them still just sittin’ there takin’ it.

    “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” – Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence, 2nd Paragraph, IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

    Sir Winston Churchill: Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

    Will they? I wonder. I think they will EVENTUALLY. We shall see – this crowd of Marxists will keep pushing until there is nothing left to be pushed. There certainly is no “stop” in them.

    When Roberts sailed through the senate committee, consisting of the likes of Biden and Kennedy, something was “fishy,” then. Something had to be wrong; We just didn’t see it initially; And now, we know what it was; What HE is. There had to be a “nod, nod, wink, wink.” Unless the Democrat majority is removed from the senate, it’ll be: All hail the new world order, and change you can believe in. Even if the November election actually occurs: We might get rid of Osama, but if we don’t break the communist (nee Democrat) super-majorities in both chambers of congress, Osama-care will be retained.
