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.

Now it’s time to send them a message they will really hear.

“I can’t help it. I’m in tears. All the protests, letters, calls meant nothing.”

Well, chin up, we’ve got some fights ahead of us. The only chance we have is educating people who keep voting in these traitors and we better get busy.

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.

I hear ya - I feel totally drained and almost total hopelessness. Hopefully, people like Mark Levin is ready to move forward immediately. Complete capitulation to these communists is not an option.

A blanket of evil descends upon our country this evening. But, I’m not going to waste my energy on weeping. I’ll fight to the death to prevent this Marxist takeover. It’s time to take up arms like our forefathers.

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.

My congressional choice is running on a promise to do everything he can to repeal.

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.

Do that and watch how fast the law changes. The IRS is getting more power than ever.

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?

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.

We are already close to the end. Let’s hold a death panel for this beast and pull the plug.

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

I can type, I can read and watch TV..but I can't speak out loud about this. There are no words. It's that traumatic.
