The Founders learned well and put our Constitution down on paper. It was not word of mouth rights but rights put down on paper for all to read. Indeed, no politician could change it without a formal amendment! The Founders had seen the politicians in England mess with the “unwritten” rights of the British subjects and had read about it in Rome so they created a legislature and gave the President the ability to veto in order to reduce the chance of mob rule. In fact, they went a step further in requiring that tax revenues could only be used only for “the general welfare” vice special interests and that laws be constitutionally “fair and proper.” The power of the government was limited by the law of the land, the Constitution, as well as the moral law of the land, the Declaration of Independence. Our individual liberties were secured by the Bill of Rights, which became the envy of the world and wonder of wonders, people flocked to live in America, coming through Ellis Island by the millions. The Founders gave us a government that we the people could hold responsible by seeing who voted for what and thus, punish them at the ballot box.
But this has been replaced by Democrats and their RINO lapdogs doing shady backroom deals. Franklin stated that we’d have a Republic as long as we could keep it and that meant following and passing on to the next generation, the rules of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that they bequeathed to us. That is, as long as we the people lived with honor, justice, and responsibility for our actions and as long as we bound our politicians to remain limited in scope. Thus, our right to life and freedom endured, until liberals seized control of the Congress and Senate in Jan 2007, following the legacy of FDR and LBJ. They enacted the Ponzi scam of Social Security, that forcibly seized taxes from persons and businesses (while Congress excluded itself), that is now broke. They enacted Medicare, forcibly seized taxes for it, and it has BEEN broke. These “bread and circus” entitlements now account for OVER 50% of annual federal spending! And now that Obummer has quadruptled the debt in ONE YEAR, the government now exists by printing more and more worthless greenback and funding itself by borrowing from our enemies.
The Mob now has control of home mortgages, bank deposits, Government Motors (previously known as General Motors), unions, student loans, and pension benefits that exceed $70 trillion dollars! Our debt is $14 trillion dollars and much of it is held by Chinese! Comrade Barry, the most UNQUALIFIED person in any room he walks into, tried blocking Chinese imports (a payoff for unions) that almost caused a trade war and could have hampered his regime’s efforts to continue funding their massive debt! Dumb is dumb in this regime. Like their Roman predecessors, the wonderfully bright members of Congress and the Senate REGULARLY DO NOT read the bills they vote on. Like a baby with a feeding tube in one end, they just keep passing more laws out of the other end, without one iota of knowledge or understanding of the effects of these laws or any previous laws on the American people, businesses, the economy, etc. Politicians are solely responsible, Wilson and FDR, for working tirelessly to expand the power of the government to "oversee" the economy, but they have failed miserably every time.
These are the same type of clowns who have presided time and time again, over things like monetary contractions, which was a major cause of the Depression, bailouts, inflation, rampant inflation, stagflation, the misery index, etc. In fact, whenever the government involves itself in our daily lives, as FDR did in 1935, when he signed the Banking Act, which centralized the power of the Fed, they idiots managed to lengthen the depression until the outbreak of World War Two. NOTHING but NOTHING that FDR and his band of clowns did lessened the misery for the American people. Funny that it took them until 2002 to apologize for inflicting such misery on the American people. “We did it. We’re very sorry. We won’t do it again.” Bernanke
But liberals, who are noted for their unique ability to make simple tasks difficult if not extremely impossible to solve, dropped the ball yet again. They forced the CRA of 1977 on us. BJ Bubba doubled down on it. They put morons like Bonnie Fwank and Chris Dodd in charge of it, even as they milked those cash cows (Fannie and Freddie), all the while saying, "its all good here!" They have subsidized borrowing to the point where a dog could probbaly get a loan for a 200,000 house! After all, they say, EVERYONE has the right to "own" a home. It is in the Constitution somewhere, or so these liberal "stains" think. So they learn nothing from the Depression in 1929 but they failed to learn the lessons of the depression of 1920 that we came through without a hitch. That, of course, you never read about in the history books. The US got out of this Depression with a little pain and suffering but it ushered in the Roaring 20's:
"we took our losses, we readjusted our financial structure, we endured our depression, and in August 1921 we started up again. The rally in business production and employment that started in August 1921 was soundly based on a drastic cleaning up of credit weakness, a drastic reduction in the costs of production, and on the free play of private enterprise. It was not based on governmental policy designed to make business good." Benjamin Anderson Economist
But the idiots running the government can't seem to keep their fingers out of our pies or their noses out of our business and here again, we find ourselves in a parallel with Rome and standing atop Mt Everest, greased on all sides with more lard than you'd find under Rosie O'Donnell's dress! The brainiacs slashed and burned their way from 2007 onward, resisting Bush's proposed reform of Fannie and Freddie, encouraged businesses to load up on debt, gave loans to morons without the ability to pay them off, lied and covered up while taking bonuses (Franklin Raines) to the tune of 90 MILLION while whining about Wall St CEO's. Divide and conquer the Mob, just like in Rome.
And like Rome, these idiots are going to take the sole superpower, in both military might and economic might, right into the sewer, just like the politicians pandering to the Mob did in Rome. They pass laws that cripple our oil production, our businesses, that pussify the American military with perfume princes like Gates and Mullen, work on a social experiment to put homos into the military, serving “openly” and what a boon to morale THAT will be. No, the only question at this point is, are they doing it out of ignorance, blatant stupidity, or malevolence and hatred for us and our way of life? Why else can explain their continued aiding and abetting of our enemies?

This country was founded by people of action. People that hated government and felt that government should be small and controlled by the people and not the other way around. Remember what TJ said "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty." Well, that's to Obama and the clowns in government we have a government that we are in fear of.ReplyDelete
This country for 150 only attracted people who were like minded in that they came here to be successful,not to be a burden on society. Americans are jenerous people but we abhore laziness. Since the 1920 the government has made it more and more attractive for the lazy in the world to be attracted to the U.S. and slowly there is a change in the gene pool here that is making a once great country into a country of lazy pathetic Ivans. God save us!

>The power of the government was limited

Utter nonsense. The Declaration has never been deemed to limit the power of the American government.
When has the Supreme Court ever struck down a gov't action or law on the basis that it violated the Declaration of Independence? Cite the case and the date.
>Bill of Rights, which became the envy
>of the world
Overblown, romantic bushwa. Most of the world didn't and doesn't give a rat's ass about the U.S. Bill of Rights.
>Social Security [...] that is now broke.
Social Security is perhaps the U.S. government's most-popular and relied-upon program, and it's anything but broke. The vast majority of Americans love social security, since it provides dignity and comfort in their old age and keeps millions from having to munch on Meow Mix.
>They enacted Medicare [...] and it has BEEN broke.
This is a lie. Medicare is rolling along quite nicely, thank you very much.
>the power of the government to "oversee"
>the economy, but they have failed miserably
Right. We should leave the economy to the merciful ministrations of the bankers and money-moguls of Wall Street, who have proven themselves so competent, so trustworthy. . . .
>Why else can explain their continued aiding

"Why else can explain. . . ?"

>People that hated government
Should be "people who hated. . ." Aside from that, America's founders did not "hate govenment" at all. They hated tyrannical, despotic government.
>Well, that's to Obama and the clowns in government
Should be "thanks to Obama," perhaps?
>we have a government that we are in fear of.
Proves once again what I've said many times -- rightoids are America's biggest pussies, afraid of very nearly everything. Most Americans are not afraid of their government unless they cheat on their taxes.
The government's coming, the government's coming! AAaaiiiiieeeee!
>This country for 150 only attracted people
This is gibberish.
>Americans are jenerous people
No, some may be g-e-n-e-r-o-u-s. None is "jenerous." Not a one.
>but we abhore laziness.
Me, I abhor stupidity and illiteracy.
>Since the 1920 the government
What can this possibly mean?
>there is a change in the gene pool
It's pretty obvious that Jimbo's DNA sprung from the gene pool's shallow end.

every now and then, I watch HGTV, and a show called "House Hunters". There have been several times when someone was buying a home, and I wondered how they could make such a lavish paymeant, or down payment. Then one day when I was really paying attention, this person said, "I didn't have the down payment, so my real estate agent got in touch with a government agency, and based on my income, they are covering my down payment." This floored me, and I realized this was one reason we got into such a mess. Giving stuff away to those with no money, for what ever their little heart desires, no matter if they are taking it from people like you, and all who pay taxes.
Good posts Gunny!ReplyDelete
There is no doubt that this administration is the most corrupt and envious in the history of this county. As to your last question, I beleive it to be malevolence. Their actions are directed and concerted which in my mind rules out stupidity and/or ignorance.
If this group of usurpers does try to steal our 401K's/IRA's it will be the last straw! Woe betide to those that would steal from me!

This proves you're insane.
No one loves freedom more than I do.
That's why I'd fight to the death to stop you rightoid assholes from turning America into the militarized, flag-waving, Bible-spouting, gun-toting, brainless, homogeneous white supremacy slave camp you lust after.
It's not "leftists," but you conservatives who fear and loathe freedom. Why else would you be thrown into such a panic by the election of a black president, the separation of religion and government and the specter of same-sex people getting legally married? Why else would you attack the ACLU and demand that libraries and schools divest themselves of materials that make you uncomfortable?
Rightoids love freedom, all right -- their own. They live to force everyone else's minds into a strait jacket of mindless conformity.
NUCLEAR AGENCY SET TO FOCUS ON ISRAEL
"VIENNA – Israel's secretive nuclear activities may undergo unprecedented scrutiny next month, with a key meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency tentatively set to focus on the topic for the first time, according to documents shared Friday with The Associated Press.
A copy of the restricted provisional agenda of the IAEA's June 7 board meeting lists 'Israeli nuclear capabilities' as the eighth item — the first time that that the agency's decision-making body is being asked to deal with the issue in its 52 years of existence."
Obama! What's not to love?

>Ivan, you are on record
>as not being willing to

Actually, I'm not.
What I'm on record as saying is that I'd never fight with the U.S. military as long as it engages in wars that are illegal or based on lies, or are launched primarily to swell the fortunes of its corporate elite, or to advance a colonialist agenda or to impose "democracy" on people who haven't requested such a service.
I would be proud to fight -- and, if necessary, die -- alongside my fellow Americans to repel an invasion of the country or to defeat a homicidal regime that engages in genocide or outrageous human rights violations.
The former has never happened. The latter describes only U.S. actions against Serbia and the Taliban.
I can't think of any other American military action since WWII that can be seen as anything but aggressive, ill-considered and for reasons that are anything but honorable.
All in all, the U.S. military has little to be proud of these days.
"I'd put a gun in mouth before I'd be part of the U.S. military machine.
Proud of being an obedient lackey in the service of corrupt, greed-crazed would-be empire builders and corporate interests?"
Based on those comments, would you take up arms against the invaders like the survivalist types?
Would you join the National Guard? Oh no, that's part of the machine.
A militia? Organized by whom?
"All in all, the U.S. military has little to be proud of these days."
Guess who were the first responders to Haiti?
Regardless of backgroud, it is easy to talk about battle, until the first bullet flies.
