LEVIN- What Obama Deserves from GOP: DEFIANCE, Obstruction, + Political Sabotage- NOT Collaboration
Reaganite Republican ^ | 04 January 2013 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 01/05/2013 3:30:58 AM PST by Reaganite Republican

'This government is completely out of control'


"What Obama deserves from us is defiance- what he deserves from Republicans in high elected office is obstruction -political sabotage- we shouldn't participate as political partners in our own demise, and that's exactly what's going on here- this is for all the marbles...

I don't care what Obama 'wants' -'Oh, I want 1.6 trillion'- who gives a damn what you 'want', Mr President...?

The US credit rating has already been downgraded, and it's going to be downgraded again- they're destroying the financial backbone of this country right before our eyes, and for what? For a few more weeks of unemployment? So more people can be on food stamps? So Obama can create his paradise? And take money from people who actually earn it... a high price to pay for this experiment, and it's a failed experiment- it's been tried over, and over, and over...

We have president of the United States who's chosen to not participate in the free-market, capitalist system - never, ever-
yet today
he rules over it

We have a president who's only success is as a demagogue- where he trashes his opponents... lies and decieves in a serial fashion... he gets elected, and somehow -SOMEhow- he's qualified to run everything! He's qualified to re-write the Constitution... how did that happen? I dunno...

In America now we're supposed to despise people who actually achieve the American Dream... we're supposed to despise people who follow the law, follow the rules, though hard work, through intelligence... long hours... invest everything they have... many of whom began with very modest means- now suddenly, if they don't contribute to 50% of their income to Obama, to the Sentate, to the Congress, to the massive bureaucracy, SOMEHOW that's unfair- unfair to whom?

Like the mob, they've got their hands in our pockets- they're the first ones there!

This isn't only a financial disaster, it is a constitutional disaster- and that's the point, ever since the federal government became un-moored from the federal Constitution, it's become this: an insatiable leviathan monster, it can't stop- you heard Obama.

It's not about the rich... it's about YOU- (Obama) hasn't gotten enough, he wants more...

This fiscal cliff discussion- what happened? The Republicans sold their soul to a president who would make Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky proud...

A president who pretends to speak for the middle class and to represent the middle class when he resents the middle class.. he resents this entire society- that's why HE's NOT DONE,
he's going to push the envelope

This is not America, this is not a constitutional democracy-
this is something else

When they say 'government is broken' they don't mean because politicians aren't complying with the Constitution, they mean we need... a benevolent dictatorship'

The issue is no longer 'what can the government do, it's 'what can't the government do?'"

The conservative movement needs a stout, resolute leader.

Without leadership, we are beaten.

I would not put my faith or my body behind any current leadership, time has shown repeatedly that the progressives have found ways to bring them down. And the buzz is now to elevate a judas goat that will lead the conservatives to the education work camps.

No I do NOT want any leadership right now, I am a free person with my own timeline and agenda.

I can howl with my brother wolves.

“The conservative movement needs a stout, resolute leader”

What the movement needs is local conservative activism. We need to eat the Donkey one piece at a time. Dear Leader has put too much money into their movement to take it head on.

It is tedious and time-consuming work, but it is the realistic way. Otherwise, we are simply “Waiting for Godot.”

His show from January 4th was among the best ever.

Last night he focused on the forgotten Ninth and somewhat on the Tenth Amendment.

These rights are ours as individuals and not privileges to be doled out to political cronies.

We are not yet at the shooting stage of resistance. Until then, it is important to remind our congress critters their oath of office and for whom they work.

It was on his radio show actually, the link to the audio is at the bottom both here and on my site

I agree with God Help Us, but I’m doing all I can to lob shells into the RINO camp while supporting true conservatives outside the RNC funding path

By 2014 enough people should be scared by economic and/or security concerns that both Progs and RINO collaborators will be significantly discredited and TEA Party vindicated

Surprised a dollar crash hasn’t happened yet but it’s coming now that John Boehner’s in bed with this vile regime

Defiance.

December 10, 2012

Michigan Republican Party chairman Bobby Schostak issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s visit to Michigan today:

“It’s interesting that President Obama has chosen to stop in Michigan to propose his economic recovery plan of higher taxes, more spending and broken budgets. Here in Michigan we’ve seen actual economic recovery by streamlining government, cutting taxes and balancing budgets.

“The President’s divisive message and attack on Michigan workers is just another indication of how out of touch Pres. Obama has become. President Obama’s continued attempt to subvert state rights is an assult on our federal system.

“I encourage the former law professor and our current President brush up on the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, ‘The powers not delegated to the United states by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.’


“The President’s stance is a blatant attack on Michigan workers and demonstrates the President’s staunch support of special interest union bosses. Thankfully, Michigan Republican leaders are here to provide a firewall for Michigan workers and their families and to keep Michigan’s turnaround on course.”

This guy waits until poor Mr. Obama goes on vacation in Hawaii to attack him.

I mean why shouldn’t he be in Hawaii while the rest of us are stuck paying for his election that he bought with our money.

He was nice enough to come back right after Christmas to scare the britch’s off Boehner and McConnell, and get his tax on Millionaires like him. It’s getting so that we in America who work for a living are little more than suckers.We could make more if we just quit and went on the Government teat, like all the Senators and Congressmen are on.

People need to take heart in the fact that many states are standing up in defiance to Obama and the tea party is gaining strength.

There is only one party in Washington and that’s The Re-Election Party. Correction: Make that the Re-Election Orgy— of corruption, graft, and personal gain. They’re all in it to win it. We need a new party of citizen patriots that voluntarly imposes term limits on itself. Our only chance of survival as a great country now rests with an enraged citizenry, uncompromised and fearless. The RATS and Go-Alongs will not solve our problems—they ARE the problem. Professional politicians are killing us.

Good points. I could add some more. Be that as it may, I won’t here in open forum, but face it, the concept is increasingly on many patriot’s minds no doubt. Millions by now in fact. This is more than incompetence, but encompasses treason with malicious knowledge and aforethought. What are we supposed to do? Just passively take it up the tailpipe and surrender 236 years of liberty without a fight?

Nope. People will want their "free stuff" and will be voting for the party that they believe will give it to them, regardless if they can provide it.

Arguably, if the economy is worse next year (2014) then people will want even MORE “free stuff”, regardless of whether it’s fiscally plausible or not. And naturally, people will vote for the party (or politicians) who will provide it for them.

The focus should be on cutting spending. The more we talk about taxes, the more we distract people from the spending issues. Taxing is what Obama wants to talk about.

Which is why I think we've passed the point of no return.

When the system crashes, the handouts will go away, and we will return to the natural order of voluntary exchange, i.e., free markets, whether we like it or not.

I think this country must alter the US Constitution to require the federal government to operate on a balanced budget (illegal for expenditures to exceed revenues).

It is highly doubtful that Congress will EVER find the self-discipline to get this nation’s economic house in order without such an amendment to the constitution.

The wording of the amendment could allow for a temporary exception in case of national emergency/full-scale war, only if approved by 3/4 majority vote of both houses of Congress.

Since Congress would never offer up such an amendment, it would be necessary for it to be done at the state legislative level. It would take 34 states to force Congress to call a national convention, and states could limit what could be considered in the Convention, effectively limiting it to the balanced budget language only.

Attempts to do just such a thing were made in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s and would need to be revived again, this time hopefully being successful because of the calamitous economic precipice facing this nation.

In the earlier attempt, 32 states had submitted an application to Congress for a convention to consider a balanced budget amendment, but it lost momentum when Congress passed the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act, known as the Gramm-Rudman Hollings Act, which required that the budget be balanced by 1991. Obviously, that act of congress was flawed in that it didn’t do what the states had wanted...require a balanced budget.

See http://www.law.harvard.edu/students/orgs/jlpp/Vol30_No3_Rogersonline.pdf for an article with relevant background of the amendment process from an historical perspective.

The Gerard Depardieu’s of Europe had to diversify their holdings somewhere. So it was either in Swiss Frank denominations or US Dollar holdings/stocks.

Of course they can just as quickly move out of the dollar as quickly as they moved in...

They will not let that happen. They are coming for our guns in 2013, because they are coming for our gold and stash in 2014. They know that hard assets will be prized commodities when hyperinflation hits due to their monetary cronyism. They also want to continue their RINO/DINO Oligarchial control of the US Presidency, US Senate, US Supreme Court and now the US House Boner. So they need to disarm us before the loss of our democracy and representative republic is painfully obvious to the majority. That is where all of this is headed.
