President Obama and the Democrats believe that every penny of the struggling middle class, all the wealth earned by the hardworking, risk taking entrepreneurs and businesspeople, and all the profits of the job-providing corporations, belongs to them, the Federal Governmentand that we should all be thankful for whatever amount of our incomes they decide to let us keep. President Obama has said that in these difficult times everyone must sacrifice. His and the Democrats idea of sacrifice is to confiscate even more money from the people to feed the government monster which politicians have created. I say the American people have sacrificed enough.
Wake up, America! Wake up, stand up and refuse to sacrifice further; its time you take control of the Federal government and make it sacrifice for a change; its time you stick a long sharp spear of responsibility and accountability into the pale fat underbelly of Big Government Oppression and bleed dry the bloated, corrupt, tyrannical and insatiably hungry monster it has become; bleed it dry of its waste, its fraud and its ability to steal and squander our wealthwealth which rightly belongs to those who create and earn it.
Your pockets have been picked, the fruit of your labor has been confiscated, your patience has been tried and your goodwill has been abused for far too long. Its time you take a stand and refuse to sacrifice further to feed the Big Government monster. Its time you starved it down from a bullying, thieving and oppressive slavemaster into the lean, fit, tame and obedient public servant that our government was founded to be. Its time for the Big Government Monster to learn that We the People are the masters, and it is the servant.
Its time to explain to the oligarchy of politicians in Washingtonall of them, of both partiesthat they are not an aristocracy existing to lord over us or to make wealth-building, decades-long careers out of what was meant by our Founders to be limited terms of dedicated public service. Its time to explain to them that their proper, legal constitutional role is narrow, limited and finite; that they dont exist to mandate, regulate and control every aspect of our lives, and that we will no longer allow them to do so; nor will we allow them to continue robbing us blind to finance their corrupt and wasteful institutions, their pet projects at home and abroad, and the bottomless pit of debt they created by their self-serving and irresponsible decisions. Its time to explain to them that they were elected to serve the people, not coronated to rule them. Its time to leash and muzzle the reckless, feckless purveyors of our oppressive Government bureaucracy and bring them and it to heel. Wake up America! Stop bending over and taking it; stand up and demand that our elected public servants act constitutionally and in our best interest, and in the best interest of the country, shed the fat, end the abuse, fraud, corruption and cronyism, or else We the People will storm Washington and remove them.
We can all look at his Birthday Bash at the White House and see how badly Obama is suffering from all of the scrimping going on at the White House.
It’s a true sacrifice to fly off to Camp David or vacation at Martha’s Vineyard, or take a taxpayer bus ride through the Mid west.How about a Helicopter ride over to Andrew’s for Golf. Wonder what that costs?
This piece of dung talks a good sacrifice game, but he is extravagant to the max with our money.
They have us by the balls! If you want to live above the poverty level, you are going to have to earn money and pay your taxes. Don’t pay the taxes and you go to jail or lose everything as they heap penalties on you. Get a felony record and you are unemployable in anything but menial labor. Don’t raise your kids in the “approved” manner and social workers come and take them, probably arresting you in the process. Move out in the woods and fence your property and try to live apart from society and they’ll find a way to come and kill you. The media will help make sure that you are the villain.
There’s 100 million of us that are fed up, but we still have enough comfort in our life that we aren’t ready to throw it away by taking to the streets and doing what free men should do with a tyrannical government such as we have today. Everyone knows that the government that we love to hate is holding all the cards for now. Things will have to get a lot worse before enough people decide that they have nothing to lose.
It isn’t 1775 anymore. With facial recognition, finger-printing, plenty of databases, and anti-terrorism laws (thank you Patriot Act for sealing the deal for the Progressives!), you can’t fight the redcoats this afternoon and run back to your farm and pretend to be a Tory this evening. Anyone that fights is All In.
I know so many “revolutionaries” who have been stockpiling guns and ammo for years for the “big rebellion”. Ask them if they own a helmet or any LBE gear and they just stare at you. Ask them what their plan is, and they say that when “the government” comes for the guns, they’re going to fight. Are they really going to kill a deputy sheriff on their own front porch? They don’t have a plan for a zombie attack (i.e. gangs of welfare recipients coming to middle class neighborhoods to loot after the welfare checks don’t show up one month). They don’t have a plan for the grocery stores suddenly being empty with no more food deliveries, except to the government camps that were conveniently set up to “assist” us.
It’s time to face facts. Either we wait for it get so bad that we no longer care if we live or die and we go into open rebellion, or we get a seat at the table and try to make the conversion of the US economy to some form of Marxism palatable.
Everyone is going to flame me for this. “You’re a stinking liberal. Go back to DU.” But ask yourself what you are going to do and when are you going to do it? What is your trigger? What are your contingency plans? How much risk are you willing to take on alone? Who can you trust to fight alongside you? Are you willing to throw yourself into a Forlorn Hope assault when both parties in DC are actively working towards creating a Marxist nation?
I’m not advocating giving up. I know my answers to the questions above. I just want others to start thinking about theirs and stop thinking that this is a Bruce Willis movie where we can win with nothing but a handgun and sheer badass-ness.
Half of America is awake. Those that are living very comfortable on freebies don’t give a shit and live of the rest of us. Why change, don’t have to work and suck suck suck.
You’ve been here a week and you are already issuing orders.
Do you realize how awesome that makes you?
I vote for you as President of Free Republic.
Friend, I understand your frustration and you make some excellent real life points; but don’t fall victim to a false dichotomy; it isn’t over yet. Apathy is out of the question. I’m not advocating armed rebellion——yet-—either. We must do all we can and awaken as many sheeple as possible before it truly is too late. Stand with us, for we are many. It is our country, we simply must de-fang the tyrannical federal government and bring it to heel, and soon. Otherwise, all is lost.
It is time for the gov’t to eat their peas, that is change I support. It is especailly time for Timmy boy to eat his peas as well and other Goldman Sach’s current and former executives.
