Let’s not get too down and out via emotions. Remember when Hussein got elected in Nov. 2008 we were suffering the same way. The Tea Party wasn’t even born then yet and look at the swing toward conservatism. We just need to sweep out the garbage infested Rats in DC.

You are most welcome. With the doom and gloom today, perhaps I should give it it’s own thread. :<)

You ever consider this was all a dog and pony show?

Yes, I'm not that dumb...:)

WAIT till the people with Pre-existing conditions find out they can indeed be insured, BUT the price of insurance will break their bank accts.

And I will continue to fight.

Brings to mind a movie quote that I will take some liberty with.......

"We are in the business of (blanking) Marxists, and business is a boomin!"

Before we all start putting America and the Constitution into a six foot grave and begin throwing dirt in its face, and then follow that with a long immobilizing mourning period, lets review the facts.

First this is not the beginning of the end of the fight, this is just the beginning of the fight.

America is not Venezuela. We're not a country, or more importantly a people that just lays down and accepts as inevitable wrongs perpetrated on us by foreign nations, politicians or our own government.

We are not a people that voluntarily climbs into the cattle cars and accepts the chains of tyranny or our individual demise and defeat as an option, no matter how difficult the fight may seem to be in correcting wrongs and save ourselves. Its just not in our DNA to be that way.

America's history is illuminated with examples of how America has reversed wrongs, protected innocence and stood up to tyranny for over 234 years. This is what America is and always will be, no matter what the difficulty or how high the obstacles are that stand in our way of doing what is right.

Look, our Founding Fathers may not have been able to see so far into the future to know exactly what difficulties we are facing today, but their genius did provide us with some solid tools with which to fight the expansion of an oppressive government or the dictates of evolving tyrannical leaders.

It is now our time to take those tools in hand at the borders of our 50 sovereign States, at the ballot box, and in the streets if necessary. Its time to take those tools and re-found America and reforge our futures, no matter what.

Just because a Bill is passed into law, does not necessarily mean that it is enforceable or that it will survive legal Constitutional challenges, or that it will survive the opposition of the people.

They don't surround us, we surround them. We run things around here and when elected officials and our government forget that, then they will have to suffer the consequences either by being thrown out of office, prosecuted or worse, if necessary.

We're not Europe. We're not South America. We're not Asia.

We saved those parts of the world from tyranny and oppression or defeated tyranny and oppression in those parts of the world, at one time or another throughout history, by the shedding of American blood in doing so.

We're not even close to having to shed blood to fix the current government that is running amuck on us at this time.

Thanks to our Founders, we have a box full of tools with which to join this fight and reverse the wrongs that are being perpetrated on us. And, its time to use each and every one of them NOW.

Start working with your State Legislature to enact State laws that protect America's true values, our interests and that of our children.

Work hard and donate money to candidates that have the courage to stand up against those currently in office that are the problem.

Protest in the streets. Pray for strength. Share the truth with those that need the facts so that they can join us in this fight.

And, most importantly, don't give up.

Don't ever give up.

At the toughest times, when the fight gets the hardest... bear up, hold up and speak up for America, for the Constitution, for our fellow Americans and most importantly for our children and grandchildren.

It ain't over ‘till we say its over.

Time to repost a classic:

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists, and Obama supporters..

We have stuck together since the late 1950’s, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know, we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but, sadly, this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot, and will not ever agree on what is right, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile, chalk it up to irreconcilable differences, and go our own way.

Here is a model separation agreement:

Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friend ly agr eement. After that it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O’Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them) .

We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street. You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies, and illegal aliens. We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s, and rednecks. We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood.

You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the peaceniks, and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, and Shirley McClaine. You can also have the U.N. But we will no longer be paying the bill.

We’ll keep the SUVs, pickup trucks, and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

You can give everyone healthcare, if you can find any practicing doctors. We’ll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right. We’ll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute “Imagine”, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”, “Kum Ba Ya”, or “We Are the World”.

We’ll practice trickle down economics, and you can give trickle up poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you we’ll keep our history, our name, and our flag.

Would you agree to this? If so please pass it along to other like minded liberal and conservative patriots, and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you ANWAR which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

Sincerely, John J. Wall
Law Student and an American

P.S. Also, please take Barbara Streisand & Jane Fonda.

The Founding fathers Have Turned over in their Graves.
Turns out they are all now proven to be Just Like Nostradomus because they all Predicted that once the electorate Discovers they can vote themselves Largess from the Public Treasury The great experiment in Democracy is Finished. Does anyone doubt we are not at that point now
