How did Obama get elected?

So how exactly did Senator Obama get himself elected President? Obviously the media bias was a huge factor in not vetting the true Obama for what he really believes. Watch the following clips and then check out the site where I found it. It is How Obama Got Elected and is a telling look at those who voted for Obama and what THEY think. Unbelievable really!




It is amazing to me the extent of the mainstream media's love afair with President elect Obama. What happened to fair and honest news reporting? What happened to the reporter who investigates the depth of the candidate no matter what they turn up? What will now happen to this country because of the lack of opposition news reporting?

Stay tuned to find out!

Run on Guns

Since the recent selection of President-elect Obama, gun sales across the country have seen increases up to 50% in some places. In the period right before the election until now there have been sharp rises in gun and ammunition sales. Why is that? Many feel that they may lose their rights to purchase these firearms once Obama takes office and the gun control heavy congress can push new laws through.

I would tend to agree with them. Obama ran a deceitful campaign on many levels. It is not open for debate. It IS fact that he purposely avoided addressing many issues and when he did, did so with generalities and vague references to what was 'fair' and 'sensible'.

According to the FBI, during election week, background checks, an indicator of firearms sales, were almost 50% higher than the same period last year.

If the country is hurting so bad economically, then why are so many buying guns? I think it is safe to say that with those we have in the white house AND congress, gun legislation Has been brought to the front and center of the agenda. The liberal left gun-control fanatics, such as the Brady Campaign, are licking their chops at pushing through new gun control acts.

After the assult weapans ban expired in 2004, there has been no evidence of increased gun violence with so-called assult weapons. But no matter, the left do not care about statistics unless they help their cause. In fact they love to 'adjust' statistics and run polls that help their agenda, whether honestly obtained or not.

The majority of increased firearms sales at this time are on AR-15 and AK-47 weapons and their like. These "assult" guns are alweays seen as the first step in gun confiscation and restriction because they can spin them as no good and only good for killing other people. Nevermind the fact that the whole reason the 2nd amendment was added was because they wanted to make sure the citizens of this country would never be found unarmed against an tyranical government. And yet the citizens of this country are not 'allowed' to have anything which might help them withstand the govt if that govt so chose to try and take over this country. Gun ownership by the citizenry is the best check and balance on govt and our founders knew it. They only added the 2nd ammendment at the last moment as an insurance against disarming the populace because at the time, ALL of the founders saw these inherent rights as intrinsic to a free society.

Gun-control groups are now targeting ammunition as well. They have lobbied for per round taxes placed on ammunition and straight out banns on certain types. If they cannot take your guns from you they will use the power of taxation and increased 'storage' laws to make the burdens too great to bear, with the hope of disarming through economics. If we sit still now, while the threats are the greatest, we will have no one to blame later but ourselves.

Call the congressional switchboard and tell your representatives that NO new laws are okay when it comes to the restriction and/or increased tax of the firearms industry. 202-224-3121

So Associations don't matter, right?

Hamas says met Obama advisors in Gaza

Ismail Haniyeh's political advisor says Islamist group met with US president-elect's aides in Strip following online correspondence; 'they told us not to come out with any statements so as not to harm Obama's campaign,' Ahmad Yousuf says
Roee Nahmias

Ahmad Yousuf, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's political advisor, said that during the recent US presidential race a secret meeting between senior Islamist group figures and advisors to President-elect Barack Obama was held in Gaza.

"We were in contact with a number of Obama's aides through the Internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza, but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as they may have a negative effect on his election campaign and be used by Republican candidate John McCain (to attack Obama)," Yousuf said in an interview with London-based Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat, published Tuesday

Yousuf said Hamas's contact with Obama's advisors was ongoing, adding that he was still on good terms with some of the aides he had befriended while residing in the US.

According to Yousuf, Haniyeh will send Obama a telegram congratulating him on his victory.

"The policy Obama will instate in the Middle East will differ from that of his predecessor George W. Bush, although it is clear that the region and the Palestinian issue will not be at the top of his agenda," Yousef told Al-Hayat, "(the president-elect) will focus more on the economic crisis, Iraq and Afghanistan."

Be afraid America, be very afraid!

Uncle Teddy!

Ted Nugent rant from a radio talk show behind enemy lines in the state of California:

Your logic, your truth, your good will, your decency, your work ethic -- it still is the guide post of America. You are "We the people."

It is the lunatic fringe that is celebrated by a media bent on socialism, bent on revitalizing the Mao Zedong agenda -- you are not the minority, you are the majority.

You know rush hour? What a pain in the *ss rush hour is? Do you have rush hour in Bakersfield? I bet you have rush hour. You know what that is? You know what that is? Those are people with alarm clocks. Those are people who get up because they have a burning fire in their soul that says, "You must be productive. In order to be a good, decent human being, you must be an asset. You must work hard before you play hard."

So Gary, you are not alone. But, what the real curse is, it's not the lying, left-wing, Mao media, it's those of us who know better, but don't speak up. The people of California have backed down. The people who are productive in California have backed down to the pimps, and the whores, and the welfare brats, and their media, and their politically correct representatives, Boxer, Feinstein, Schwarzenegger, who literally will lie through their teeth to benefit some blood sucking constituency while your paycheck is being raped and pillaged to pay for some bling-bling infested punk.

You've got to start raising Hell -- and I am constantly being gunned down by the media; I'm a curse, I'm a dangerous guy, I'm a madman, I'm scary, I have too many guns, I shoot all the deer -- eat me! I stand up and I take the bullets because my name is Davy Crockett. This is the wall of the Alamo. If you can't shoot Santa Anna's men, shut up and load my gun! So get tough and get tougher.

You don't need tough love in America, you need tougher love. Around the water cooler, at the church, at school. At the work place, at the picnic, and the bowling alley. You should be pounding the desk with your fist, raising hell, and take this beautiful state back from the pimps, and the whores, and the welfare brats, and the gang-bangers who seems to have all the rights in the world while the good people, the productive, law abiding people don't have jack squat -- and I think I am going to throw up.

Well said Ted! This is too true not just in California but everywhere in this great country of ours. Rise up people and speak up! I will stand alone if I have to, but together we are MANY!

Indentured Servitude or Slavery?

The United States of America has totally and unequivocally broken any semblance of the glass ceiling for blacks. A self proclaimed black man has been elected to the highest office in the land. In a country with the scars of slavery, regardless of his socialist views and ideas, this is an historic achievement.

So why would President-elect Obama suggest a form of slavery to be instituted in America? Within 24 hours of becoming the declared winner of the Presidency, Obama had on his website Change.gov an outline for one of his proposals for America.

Obama thinks that the community service he did helped him become the great man he is. That may be true. Obama thinks that if youth performed service for others they would become better individuals and be able to see beyond themselves. This too is most likely true. Obama feels many youth today do not do any kind of community service for their communities. I also feel this is true. But this is where Obama takes a hard left.

  • He want to make community service a requirement for all students in order to advance
  • 50 hrs a year compulsory service for grade school students
  • 100 hrs a year compulsory service for high school students
  • 3 months community service a year for each college student

So I wonder how we compel someone to go along with this? We keep them from advancing, receiving diploma's and degree's of course. So check out the definition of slavery:

Slavery is the systematic exploitation of labour. As a social-economic system, slavery is a legal or informal institution under which a person (called "a slave") is compelled to work for another (sometimes called "the master" or "slave owner").[1] Evidence of slavery predates written records, and has existed to varying extents, forms and periods in almost all cultures and continents.[2] Slaves are held against their will from the time of their capture, purchase, or birth, and are deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to receive compensation (such as wages) in return for their labour. As such, slavery is one form of unfree labor.

An indentured servant is a form of debt bondage worker. The laborer is under contract of an employer for some period of time, usually three to seven years, in exchange for their transportation, food, drink, clothing, lodging and other necessities. Unlike a slave, an indentured servant is required to work only for a limited term specified in a signed contract

Somewhere in the middle of these definitions is Obama's plan. He is requiring work against ones will without any compensation. And if he was so proud of this plan, why did the web site take it down after they started getting flack for it? And how long will the mainstream media protect Obama once he really starts keeping things from them?

I guess we'll wait and see.

Salute a Veteran

Today, November 11th, 2008 is the day we as a Nation celebrate Veterans Day. A day set aside to pay homage to the lives that have been lost in the name of this great country. A day also to celebrate all veterans of the United States Armed forces who HAVE and who ARE sacrificing and risking their very lives for the sake of freedom.

A history:

Armistice Day Becomes Veterans Day

World War I officially ended on June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. The actual fighting between the Allies and Germany, however, had ended seven months earlier with the armistice, which went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. Armistice Day, as November 11 became known, officially became a holiday in the United States in 1926, and a national holiday 12 years later. On June 1, 1954, the name was changed to Veterans Day to honor all U.S. veterans.

In 1968, new legislation changed the national commemoration of Veterans Day to the fourth Monday in October. It soon became apparent, however, that November 11 was a date of historic significance to many Americans. Therefore, in 1978 Congress returned the observance to its traditional date.

Tomb of the Unknowns

Official, national ceremonies for Veterans Day center around the Tomb of the Unknowns.
To honor these men, symbolic of all Americans who gave their lives in all wars, an Army honor guard, the 3d U.S. Infantry (The Old Guard), keeps day and night vigil.
At 11 a.m. on November 11, a combined color guard representing all military services executes "Present Arms" at the tomb. The nation's tribute to its war dead is symbolized by the laying of a presidential wreath and the playing of "Taps."

We here in America enjoy many freedoms. Many of those freedoms tend to be taken for granted because we here enjoy more security than most of the rest of the world. The founders of this great country saw a chance with the forming of a new nation to create one that gave all men equal footing. While we do not guarantee everyone wealth(yet) we give all the same opportunities to achieve wealth. This could not happen without the sacrifice of a vigilant and dedicated military. Not only does our military defend and protect our freedom and democracy, we have extended ourselves to ensure freedoms may be enjoyed abroad.

What importance does this freedom mean today?

Without the United States of America's example and intolerance of human atrocity, many other countries must try and at least present their people some form of democracy. We ARE the light up on the hill. Our freedoms and liberties are still a beacon that bring many to our shores with its promises of opportunity not available in most of the world.

Today as you live your normal day, think of the sacrifices made to ensure your peaceful day. Thank a veteran, but not just today, when and where you see him or her. A hand shake or a smile, just to say thanks. You do not have to buy them dinner or pay for their movie, but you could. But whatever you do, let them know you appreciate everything they do for us!

Happy Veterans Day!

Have you thanked your Veteran today yet?

Happy Birthday US Marines


Just because I am a little biased towards the Us Army does not mean I do not hold in high regard ALL of the united States Armed Forces. With that being said, A big Happy Birthday to The United States Marines!
1775: Founding of the Marine Corps

A legacy is born

During the American Revolution, many important political discussions took place in the inns and taverns of Philadelphia, including the founding of the Marine Corps. A committee of the Continental Congress met at Tun Tavern to draft a resolution calling for two battalions of Marines able to fight for independence at sea and on shore. The resolution was approved on November 10, 1775, officially forming the Continental Marines. As the first order of business, Samuel Nicholas became Commandant of the newly formed Marines. Tun Tavern’s owner and popular patriot, Robert Mullan, became his first captain and recruiter. They began gathering support and were ready for action by early 1776. Each year, the Marine Corps marks November 10th with a celebration of the brave spirit which compelled these men and thousands since to defend our country as United States Marines.
Happy 233!

Constitutional Relationships

Statement on Signing the Executive Order Establishing the Presidential Advisory Committee on Federalism
April 8, 1981 - Ronald Reagan

The Presidential federalism advisory committee that I am forming today is a first step in helping me to restore a proper constitutional relationship between the Federal, State, and local governments. Unfortunately, our decentralized system of government has over the years been bent out of shape. The Federal Government too often has treated elected State and local officials as if they were nothing more than administrative agents for Federal authority. I will look to this Advisory Committee to help me find ways to return towards a proper balance.
The people who make up State and local governments are as capable as any in Washington, D.C. My administration looks forward to working with them in concrete ways. We need to provide for greater authority and responsibility in the States, counties, cities, and towns -- to return government to those closest to the people most affected.

I am particularly pleased that my good friend Senator Paul Laxalt, who served in county government before being elected Lieutenant Governor and then Governor of the State of Nevada, has agreed to serve as Chairman of this Committee. I am further pleased that a bipartisan cross section of Governors, State legislators, mayors, county officials, and Members of Congress have agreed to serve on this Committee.

One Man, One Woman

There was not much for me to cheer about with Obama elected as my President. But there was another issue that I was following quite closely. In Arizona, we were attempting to add an amendment to our States Constitution forever defining marriage as between one man and one woman. California and Florida had similar propositions on their ballots.

This was not a party issue. This was a moral issue. Marriage IS defined in the bible. As well as the fact that homosexuality is an abomination in the sight of God. But this was not in any way tied to taking anything away from those who want partner rights or medical benefits for gay roommates. This was about keeping marriage as God intended. Between one man and one Woman.

I could not believe the amount of hostility by the opponents of this proposition. I had to replace signs frequently. There was one time when a neighbor told me my sign was in the street burning. I saw many signs defaced with a large NO over the Yes in Yes for 102: Yes for marriage. On Tuesday I set up many signs at the polling centers as well as many corners which had seen their signs taken prior. Several times that day I had to return to replace or stand back up most of the signs. Are these the actions of intellectually honest and rational people? I think not. I saw a couple of No on 102 signs. I felt no urge to tear down the sign. I did not light the sign on fire. So what possesses someone to become so embittered that they would steal someones sign or burn it, or even just knock it down?

Well, it passed, and I could not be happier about it. California and Florida also passed their constitutional amendments on Marriage. The reason it is so important to ammend the states constitution is that once it is in the State constitution, only the supreme court can rule on any suits launched by gay activists and it keeps activist judges from being able to legislate from their benches. The lunatic left have taken the White House but I think it will be harder than they think to institute some of the whacked out loony legislation they have planned.

Lets hope so anyway.

Reagan had the right idea!

Ronald Reagan inherited a country experiencing gasoline shortages. Read how he handled this problem. Did we ever run out of gas since?

Statement on Signing Executive Order 12287, Providing for the Decontrol of Crude Oil and Refined Petroleum Products

January 28, 1981

I am ordering, effective immediately, the elimination of remaining Federal controls on U.S. oil production and marketing.
For more than 9 years, restrictive price controls have held U.S. oil production below its potential, artificially boosted energy consumption, aggravated our balance of payments problems, and stifled technological breakthroughs. Price controls have also made us more energy-dependent on the OPEC nations, a development that has jeopardized our economic security and undermined price stability at home.
Fears that the planned phaseout of controls would not be carried out, for political reasons, have also hampered production. Ending these controls now will erase this uncertainty.
This step will also stimulate energy conservation. At the same time, the elimination of price controls will end the entitlements system, which has been in reality a subsidy for the importation of foreign oil.
This order also ends the gasoline allocation regulations which the Departments of Energy and Justice cite as important causes of the gas lines and shortages which have plagued American consumers on and off since 1974.
In order to provide for the orderly termination of petroleum controls, certain minor provisions of the current regulatory program will not end until March 31, 1981.
Ending price controls is a positive first step towards a balanced energy program, a program free of arbitrary and counter-productive constraints, one designed to promote prudent conservation and vigorous domestic production.

This was brilliant. unfortunately since, congress has added regulation upon regulation upon the oil industry and limited where and what they can produce. We need a conservative like Reagan. I know he is out there, somewhere! How bad will it have to get before we recognize him(her) or they recognize their potential and decide to stand up for the rest of us?

Is it you?

Inaugural Address

To a few of us here today this is a solemn and most momentous occasion, and yet in the history of our nation it is a commonplace occurrence. The orderly transfer of authority as called for in the Constitution routinely takes place, as it has for almost two centuries, and few of us stop to think how unique we really are. In the eyes of many in the world, this every-4-year ceremony we accept as normal is nothing less than a miracle.

Mr. President, I want our fellow citizens to know how much you did to carry on this tradition. By your gracious cooperation in the transition process, you have shown a watching world that we are a united people pledged to maintaining a political system which guarantees individual liberty to a greater degree than any other, and I thank you and your people for all your help in maintaining the continuity which is the bulwark of our Republic.

The business of our nation goes forward. These United States are confronted with an economic affliction of great proportions. We suffer from the longest and one of the worst sustained inflations in our national history. It distorts our economic decisions, penalizes thrift, and crushes the struggling young and the fixed-income elderly alike. It threatens to shatter the lives of millions of our people.

Idle industries have cast workers into unemployment, human misery, and personal indignity. Those who do work are denied a fair return for their labor by a tax system which penalizes successful achievement and keeps us from maintaining full productivity.
But great as our tax burden is, it has not kept pace with public spending. For decades we have piled deficit upon deficit, mortgaging our future and our children's future for the temporary convenience of the present. To continue this long trend is to guarantee tremendous social, cultural, political, and economic upheavals.

You and I, as individuals, can, by borrowing, live beyond our means, but for only a limited period of time. Why, then, should we think that collectively, as a nation, we're not bound by that same limitation? We must act today in order to preserve tomorrow. And let there be no misunderstanding: We are going to begin to act, beginning today.

The economic ills we suffer have come upon us over several decades. They will not go away in days, weeks, or months, but they will go away. They will go away because we as Americans have the capacity now, as we've had in the past, to do whatever needs to be done to preserve this last and greatest bastion of freedom.
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price.
We hear much of special interest groups. Well, our concern must be for a special interest group that has been too long neglected. It knows no sectional boundaries or ethnic and racial divisions, and it crosses political party lines. It is made up of men and women who raise our food, patrol our streets, man our mines and factories, teach our children, keep our homes, and heal us when we're sick -- professionals, industrialists, shopkeepers, clerks, cabbies, and truckdrivers. They are, in short, ``We the people,'' this breed called Americans.

Well, this administration's objective will be a healthy, vigorous, growing economy that provides equal opportunities for all Americans with no barriers born of bigotry or discrimination. Putting America back to work means putting all Americans back to work. Ending inflation means freeing all Americans from the terror of runaway living costs. All must share in the productive work of this ``new beginning,'' and all must share in the bounty of a revived economy. With the idealism and fair play which are the core of our system and our strength, we can have a strong and prosperous America, at peace with itself and the world.

So, as we begin, let us take inventory. We are a nation that has a government -- not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the Earth. Our government has no power except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.
It is my intention to curb the size and influence of the Federal establishment and to demand recognition of the distinction between the powers granted to the Federal Government and those reserved to the States or to the people. All of us need to be reminded that the Federal
Government did not create the States; the States created the Federal Government.
Now, so there will be no misunderstanding, it's not my intention to do away with government. It is rather to make it work -- work with us, not over us; to stand by our side, not ride on our back. Government can and must provide opportunity, not smother it; foster productivity, not stifle it.
If we look to the answer as to why for so many years we achieved so much, prospered as no other people on Earth, it was because here in this land we unleashed the energy and individual genius of man to a greater extent than has ever been done before. Freedom and the dignity of the individual have been more available and assured here than in any other place on Earth. The price for this freedom at times has been high, but we have never been unwilling to pay that price.

It is no coincidence that our present troubles parallel and are proportionate to the intervention and intrusion in our lives that result from unnecessary and excessive growth of government. It is time for us to realize that we're too great a nation to limit ourselves to small dreams. We're not, as some would have us believe, doomed to an inevitable decline. I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing. So, with all the creative energy at our command, let us begin an era of national renewal. Let us renew our determination, our courage, and our strength. And let us renew our faith and our hope.

We have every right to dream heroic dreams. Those who say that we're in a time when there are not heroes, they just don't know where to look. You can see heroes every day going in and out of factory gates. Others, a handful in number, produce enough food to feed all of us and then the world beyond. You meet heroes across a counter, and they're on both sides of that counter. There are entrepreneurs with faith in themselves and faith in an idea who create new jobs, new wealth and opportunity. They're individuals and families whose taxes support the government and whose voluntary gifts support church, charity, culture, art, and education. Their patriotism is quiet, but deep. Their values sustain our national life.

Now, I have used the words ``they'' and ``their'' in speaking of these heroes. I could say ``you'' and ``your,'' because I'm addressing the heroes of whom I speak -- you, the citizens of this blessed land. Your dreams, your hopes, your goals are going to be the dreams, the hopes, and the goals of this administration, so help me God.
We shall reflect the compassion that is so much a part of your makeup. How can we love our country and not love our countrymen; and loving them, reach out a hand when they fall, heal them when they're sick, and provide opportunity to make them self-sufficient so they will be equal in fact and not just in theory?
Can we solve the problems confronting us? Well, the answer is an unequivocal and emphatic ``yes.'' To paraphrase Winston Churchill, I did not take the oath I've just taken with the intention of presiding over the dissolution of the world's strongest economy.
In the days ahead I will propose removing the roadblocks that have slowed our economy and reduced productivity. Steps will be taken aimed at restoring the balance between the various levels of government. Progress may be slow, measured in inches and feet, not miles, but we will progress. It is time to reawaken this industrial giant, to get government back within its means, and to lighten our punitive tax burden. And these will be our first priorities, and on these principles there will be no compromise.
On the eve of our struggle for independence a man who might have been one of the greatest among the Founding Fathers, Dr. Joseph Warren, president of the Massachusetts Congress, said to his fellow Americans, "Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of . . . . On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important questions upon which rests the happiness and the liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves."
Well, I believe we, the Americans of today, are ready to act worthy of ourselves, ready to do what must be done to ensure happiness and liberty for ourselves, our children, and our children's children. And as we renew ourselves here in our own land, we will be seen as having greater strength throughout the world. We will again be the exemplar of freedom and a beacon of hope for those who do not now have freedom.
To those neighbors and allies who share our freedom, we will strengthen our historic ties and assure them of our support and firm commitment. We will match loyalty with loyalty. We will strive for mutually beneficial relations. We will not use our friendship to impose on their sovereignty, for our own sovereignty is not for sale.
As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people. We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it; we will not surrender for it, now or ever.
Our forbearance should never be misunderstood. Our reluctance for conflict should not be misjudged as a failure of will. When action is required to preserve our national security, we will act. We will maintain sufficient strength to prevail if need be, knowing that if we do so we have the best chance of never having to use that strength.
Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have. It is a weapon that we as Americans do have. Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and prey upon their neighbors.
I'm told that tens of thousands of prayer meetings are being held on this day, and for that I'm deeply grateful. We are a nation under God, and I believe God intended for us to be free. It would be fitting and good, I think, if on each Inaugural Day in future years it should be declared a day of prayer.
This is the first time in our history that this ceremony has been held, as you've been told, on this West Front of the Capitol. Standing here, one faces a magnificent vista, opening up on this city's special beauty and history. At the end of this open mall are those shrines to the giants on whose shoulders we stand.
Directly in front of me, the monument to a monumental man, George Washington, father of our country. A man of humility who came to greatness reluctantly. He led America out of revolutionary victory into infant nationhood. Off to one side, the stately memorial to Thomas Jefferson. The Declaration of Independence flames with his eloquence. And then, beyond the Reflecting Pool, the dignified columns of the Lincoln Memorial. Whoever would understand in his heart the meaning of America will find it in the life of Abraham Lincoln.
Beyond those monuments to heroism is the Potomac River, and on the far shore the sloping hills of Arlington National Cemetery, with its row upon row of simple white markers bearing crosses or Stars of David. They add up to only a tiny fraction of the price that has been paid for our freedom.
Each one of those markers is a monument to the kind of hero I spoke of earlier. Their lives ended in places called Belleau Wood, The Argonne, Omaha Beach, Salerno, and halfway around the world on Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Pork Chop Hill, the Chosin Reservoir, and in a hundred rice paddies and jungles of a place called Vietnam.
Under one such marker lies a young man, Martin Treptow, who left his job in a small town barbershop in 1917 to go to France with the famed Rainbow Division. There, on the western front, he was killed trying to carry a message between battalions under heavy artillery fire.
We're told that on his body was found a diary. On the flyleaf under the heading, ``My Pledge,'' he had written these words: ``America must win this war. Therefore I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone.''
The crisis we are facing today does not require of us the kind of sacrifice that Martin Treptow and so many thousands of others were called upon to make. It does require, however, our best effort and our willingness to believe in ourselves and to believe in our capacity to perform great deeds, to believe that together with God's help we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us.
And after all, why shouldn't we believe that? We are Americans.
God bless you, and thank you.

This was Ronald Wilson Reagan's first Inaugural Address in Jan, 1981

Obamanation!

I accept that 53 % of the American People voted for Obama last Tuesday. I do however have some major concerns. How did a self described socialist whack job become President of the United States of America?

The number one job of President is to honor and defend the Constitution of these United States. How can Obama even pretend to do this when he has come out and stated that in his mind the Constitution is inherently flawed. He wants to give judges the ability to legislate from the bench. This has been the single most problematic effect of activist judges.

When the founders created the three branches of government they split the legislative branch so that corruption could not overtake the whole branch. They created the Executive branch as a safeguard for the Constitution, to look after her interests. The founders, having studied in great detail, all governments from the Roman Republic to English Parliamentary procedure, were very careful to make sure there were checks and balances between the legislative and executive branches. They so highly regarded judges of the time, they did not spell out what judges could NOT do. They did however charge that the Supreme court was only to judge whether laws were constitutional. To uphold the constitution. They have strayed a little from this, no?

And we have all these additional levels of judges that are completely unnecessary. The constitution gives congress the right to establish these lesser courts 'as needed' but they have the same mandate. We the people need to bring back judicial accountability.

I think what bothers me more than what Obama has professed to want to do as President is that so many of my fellow Americans either chose to ignore this or just plain don't care. I am not sure which is worse.

I am disappointed in the people of this country. Not for voting differently than me, but for voting someone into office who absolutely has no business as the leading defender of the United States Constitution!

What an OBAMANATION!

727 Days left until 2010 Elections

There are approximately 727 days left until the 2010 congressional elections. There is a lot of work to be done between now and then.

Nazi Pelosi and her one party rule will start in earnest to push for the far left ideas they have wanted and waited for.

I consider this election of Obama to the office of President of the USA as a warning. I do not decry him as the anti-Christ. I do however fear what he and a liberally led congress can do to the very fabric of this Country and the Constitution it is founded upon.

The fact that 52% of the American people are willing to sacrifice their freedoms for social handouts is beyond me. Why usually rational people can do something so irrational defies logic. But I do have my theories. The first of which is the state of our educational system in America. It is deplorable to say the least.

First of all, we have been misled into thinking that education is a right. It is not and has never been. And now today we average cost of over 10,000 dollars per student per year. And what do we get for this? A population that increasingly does not have the aptitude to to fill the job needs of the highest skill levels in America, and so we consistently bring in other qualified candidates from other countries.

In our schools we indoctrinate those who attend by denying them any sense of national pride. We strip away and free thoughts and teach them a watered down history skewed to a liberal agenda. Did you realize that fewer than 15% of graduating seniors in America can tell you what is really written in the constitution, let alone name the first three Presidents of our great Nation. What are we teaching? Reading writing and arithmetic for sure, but we are teaching them that it's okay to be gay. We teach them that you can be proud of your race and culture, only if you are not white. We teach our children that the government can solve all our problems. And it goes on and on.

The constitution only provides for life liberty and the PURSUIT of happiness. It does not guarantee happiness, only that one has the right to pursue it, on equal footing, with equal opportunity. There was a time when we taught our children to work hard and got together with others who lived around us and pooled our money to hire teachers. We then would build a community school for these teachers to teach our children in. These teachers taught their students the basics of reading writing and Arithmetic. Most continuing education was done by self study and then independent study at University. There were not 'required classes' and prerequisites either. If you do not think this works take a look at John Adams, one of our founding fathers as well as Thomas Jefferson, both of whom taught themselves Latin, French and Law as well as became well read on all they could get their hands on.

Where are our Washington, Adams or Jefferson of today? They are in the charter schools learning about the constitution. They are using the Internet to find out as much information on the subjects that interest them as they can. They are the leaders of industry and invention who drive the markets.

Will Obama make things bad enough that these scholars will rise to the challenge?

I sure hope so.

President Obama

I post this on election day. Am I trying to be prophetic? I should say not. If one were to believe the obviously left leaning media, anyone who would vote for any candidate other than Obama should stay home because their vote will not matter. This has not been the intellectually honest and truth seeking media I thought we had in America. I have always felt proud of our country that gave the freedom of the press to act as a kind of check on corruption and double speak.

In this new day of instant news and information availability, a candidate cannot speak one way to one group and then change the message to suit another group of voters. At least not without being called out about it. That is up until the mainstream media decided to climb into bed with Mr. Obama. I am just sick that he has been given a pass on every misstep and association that should at the very least be explained honestly and forthright. I will not mention them all here because at this point it is for naught. The purported journalists of this country's mainstream publications and news stations have failed the people of this country.

I speak to smart and good people every day who when faced with certain aspects of Obama's stated stances on things and past associations are appalled that they had never "really" heard about them. Of course the first reaction is that if they were true they would have heard about them. If only that were true.

So if Obama does what the cheer leading corps of CNN and MSNBC and the other major news outlets are hoping and praying for, will we have lost all hope for this country? I sure hope not. But what I do not understand is the fact that the sheeple voting are potentially increasing the amount of seats held by democrats when the democratically held house and senate have a mere 9% approval rating. Is it a indoctrination of misinformation and double speak? I say it is.

If under a President Obama and democratic house and senate the economy continues to slump and the economic growth in the United States disappears because of the size of the capital gains taxes etc, will the media continue to blame "8 years of Bush"?

This is scary in and of itself and yet it gets worse. In just the last day Obama has let us on a little more of his plan for America. He has called for a civilian defense organization to take on the problems here in America. This just stinks of absolute socialism. Follow along with me please;
During an economic depressive period in Europe that especially hit Germany hard, a young Adolf Hitler found a voice among a minority party and preaching hope and change and national pride rose to power eerily much like Obama. He used the press very effectively. The press of the day were very tired of the leadership in Germany at the time and fanned the flames Hitler was lighting. Like Obama, Hitler was a great orator who inspired his crowds. Those who opposed him were scorched in the media outlets of the day and found themselves in ruin politically.

To this date I have been reluctant to make too close a comparison of the two. No longer will I make that mistake. Once Hitler was in power he created a 'civilian defence' organization. This group started by acting as the personal guards to Hitlers' Nazi Party. They were granted the power to act as a new military arm of Adolf. Soon the media who were oh so happy to promote him found they could not print anything other than what was viewed as 'good for the country' or in other words, approved by the Nazis. This civilian defense became known as the SS and quickly had the country, including the military in it's grasp. The comparison is too close to ignore. We have seen how the Obama camp has acted toward any media source who asked the 'wrong' questions. (The news Station was told it would not get any further interviews with Obama or Biden and that they would not have White House privileges when Obama is elected) We saw how journalists were treated once their respected publications chose to endorse a candidate other than Obama.(they were kicked off the Obama plane)

Is this how the freedom in America Dies? Thankfully I don't think he can do all he has designs to do before America can react and take back it's country. But if you are not scarred, you should be! Rise up America, and return this nation back to the great nation it can still be!
