We’ll never get this crap repealed if we take that attitude.

What if everyone LEGALLY increased their number of exemptions such that the government withheld less? Wouldn’t this cause a serious cash flow problem for the government?

What if on tax day 2011, as many people as possible legally filed for an extension? How long could a government spend like this with no cash flow?

“The light of Freedom in the world has just gone out.”

NO! Keep lighting it! Don’t let disappointment rule you.

Disappointment brings discouragement.

Constant failure to realize our plans or expectations will cause us to lose confidence and hope,

and inability to handle disappointment becomes a great tool.

The following story, given to me by a friend and mentor 45 years ago,

written by Walter Knight, illustrates.

Discouragement

It was advertised that the Devil was going to put his tools up for sale.

On the day of the sale the tools were placed for public inspection,

each being marked with its sale price.

They were a treacherous lot of implements....

Hatred, Envy, Jealousy, Deceit, Lying, Pride,

and so on comprised the outfit.

Laid apart from the rest was a harmless looking tool,

well worn, and priced very high.

“What is the name of this tool?”

asked one of the purchasers, pointing to it.

“That is discouragement” tersely replied the Devil.

“Why have you priced it so high?”

“Because it is more useful to me than the others.

I can pry open and get inside a man’s heart with that,

when I cannot get near him with other tools.

Once I get inside, I can make him do what I choose.

It is badly worn because I use it on almost everyone,

since few people know it belongs to me.”

“Repeal” will be the winning word from any candidate this November! Any legislature that can pass a bill, another can repeal it. My concern is the illegals and the possibility of their getting voting rights by Nov. 20,000,000 is a big number.

Come on, folks. Take heart, every member of the House has to return to your district and vengance can be extracted then. Look for to the day of their arrival and give them a welcome they will remember the rest of their lives! Hopefully they will remember the good parts like running with their hands over their heads and their pants filling up. Do not pass up an opportunity.

I knew someone who was at a Maundy Thursday service late once. A storm came up. Eactly the end of communion, a lightning bolt struck and a gust of wind blew through the nave and up into the sanctuary and blew the Christ candle out.

The federal government was headed for financial collapse before this. This is just the icing on the cake. It will speed up its demise a bit. And the truth is that we may be better off without it, anyway.

It saddens me to see our once-great nation die... she went terminal in November 2008, and now her death is at hand.. Yes, I know we had a great run and great nations normally don’t last as long as ours, but it’s still heart-wrenching to watch her pass away.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

They don’t take in anywhere near what they spend now. They’ll just borrow more from generations yet to be born (those who survive the Stupak abortion act that is.)

No....Here's the reality.

We have been taken over by a Marxist Party, plain and simple. There motto is “the end justifies the means”.

All of these Politburo members will lie with smiles on their faces just to get their agenda accomplished, including Stupak.

Since their words mean nothing, we must assume on all issues that all Democrats have nothing but their vision of a Socialist, Utopian society as their end game.

As such, we as Americans are going to have realize our enemy and deal with them accordingly.

When the elections of November come, WE are going to have to organize our own group of Poll Watchers in order to maintain the integrity of our election process, so that the will of the American People is reflected accurately by the voting process. If we are successful at maintaining the integrity of the election process, I'm fairly certain this regime will be tossed out on it's 4ss and the damage which has been inflicted upon our once great Country can be reversed over time.

There was a time when this might have worked. That was when the government needed out tax dollars to do the things they wanted to do.

That time is passed. They spend without regard to whether or not they have the money.Just looks at Il Douche's tens of trillions of debt we're incurring. How do they do that? By monetizing the debt. They'll print more IOUs (not money,but T-bills) and simply increase the debt. The'Rats don't care about ever repaying it. That's for the little folk to worry about, the honest people (like us). The beast will only starve when people who are buying our instruments of debt believe that they aren't worth the paper they are printed on. Then the beast will stave, and we'll all be ruined.

Check the last debt sale - there was a RECORD lack of interest in US debt vehicles.

Indefinitely, and in the same way the charlatans in DC have been spending more than they collected for over a hundred years: deficit spending.

It means we lost this battle. But this is one battle. In a long war. And this is only on front. Now we take up the torch to the next battle on the next front. Take back your state houses. Fight in the courts. Monkey wrench every way you can. And still fight like hell to get a constitutionalist republican elected to the house in Nov. AND we have to let them know that we’ll fight even harder on the next piece of garbage they have in the pipeline.

All the protests, letters, calls meant nothing.

No: they mean everything. Everything that you and others have done has energized Americans who want their country back. Apathy is no longer an option.

As for those who have deluded themselves into believing that the President's Executive Order will be ultimately enforceable or that the Senate will really take up the Reconciliation bill - they will be disabused before long.

There are thousands of Americans just like you in Washington this weekend, but they represent only the infancy of a movement. We want our nation and our Constitution restored and we mean to have it. Never forget: Liberty has few friends because it demands so much of those who love it. Freedom is easily lost because it required constant vigilance.

If they were asleep before, I believe that many true Americans are now wide awake.

Take it back, America. I still believe in you. The fight begins now.

I find it remarkable that in my very blue state there are 250+ comments on the local TV web site about this bill and nearly 100% of them are opposed! The article states that every member of Congress from this state is in favor of this monstrosity. The response is that they are out of touch, and no one wants the bill. I wonder how many people writing the negative comments voted for these Dems who are pro Pelosi! Unfortunately I don’t think the responses represent the public at large, at least not in this state where 0 got 60% of the vote.

the damage which has been inflicted upon our once great Country can be reversed over time.

Very rational, but illogical.

I am nearly 60 years old, and I have never seen damage reversed or a single entitlement program killed by the Republican party. When government becomes the largest employer.....When more than 50% of the voting public is a direct dependent of government....When all vestiges of the once great Republic have been replaced by pure Democracy....

It is what it is.

You cannot fix this now or ever. It will die one day very soon, with the country and that day is coming like a freight train. I hope I don't live to see it.
