Let’s Pass the Immigration Bill and See What Is In It or Not In It

Insanity is often defined as doing the same thing over and over yet expecting a different result.

Heritage Foundation, The Foundry Morning Bell, Amy Payne using a phrase originating with Albert Einstein.

David Inserra, Heritage Foundation stated:

Instead of new ideas, the current bill is essentially just recycling the flawed and failed ideas of the past.

They tried amnesty in 1986. It encouraged more illegal immigrants to cross the border in hopes they could stay long enough without being deported in order for political prostitutes to give them amnesty.

Reasons For Serious Reformation of the Federal Government

How much scandal, anti-constitutional and anti-United States acts, policies, and agendas does it take for the US Congress and the American citizens to realize that Obama and associates are detrimental to the future of the United States of America? Indeed, considering the past two administrations, how much does it take for the American people to demand that We the People return to control our government as prescribed by the US Constitution and elect individuals who actually believe in the Constitution and respect its limitations of power of the federal government and adherence of state governments to the unionified laws of the Constitution?

Beginning with the most recent:

Sarah Palin Speaks Out Against RINOs in Senate

The Schumer-Toomey-Manchin Bill will expand background checks to include private transactions. Commercial firearm sales require that it be made by a federal licensed firearm dealer. It consists of a series of traps that include an indirect taxation. Remember how the feds [and states] overtax tobacco in order to prevent the use of tobacco products – well this bill will also open a Pandora Box that will make firearms and ammunition unaffordable, eventually. Sarah Palin as sworn that any senator who agrees and helps pass this bill will get no support from her, the Tea Party organization or the SuperPac crowd. It also provides the attorney general with certain actions, as Conservative Byte points out.

Spotlight: Senator Ron Johnson, Wisconsin

Senator Ronald Harold “Ron” Johnson is a junior United States Senator for Wisconsin and a member of the Republican Party and associated with the Tea Party movement – and my senator.
When no other congressional representative would help in my battle for veteran’s benefits for injury compensation recorded in military health records, Senator Johnson and his staff were there. The outcome did not come out the way it should have, but that was because of trickster legislators changing the rules in 1996. 
With that personal reference set aside, I would like to present Senator Johnson’s policies and congressional voting record for others in Congress to examine, over-and-above political rhetoric and media bias. Briefly, his biography:

Johnson was born in Mankato, Minnesota, the son of Jeanette Elizabeth (née Thisius) and Dale Robert Johnson. His father was of Norwegian descent and his mother was of German ancestry.[7] After graduating from the University of Minnesota, he married Jane, the daughter of the businessman Howard Curler, co-founder of Curwod Industries, now part of the multinational Bemis Company. Johnson worked as an accountant for Jostens, a high school- and college class ring supplier, as well a sports-championship ring supplier, including for the Super Bowl, while attending night school for an MBA. He completed his classes, but did not receive his degree because he did not finish his thesis. In 1979, Johnson moved to Wisconsin with his wife, and both started working for PACUR, a custom sheet extruder company, with his wife’s brother, Patrick Curler, for whom the company is named. … The 2010 U.S. Senate campaign was Johnson’s first run for elective office. He was described as a “political blank slate” because he had no history of campaigning or taking a position as an elected official.[1]… As of November 1, 2010, Johnson had contributed more than $8.2 million to his own campaign, representing 64% of total campaign contributions.[14]… After being elected to the Senate, Johnson “sold every liquid asset so there would be absolutely no chance for conflict of interest.” Johnson was not required to sell these holdings.[17]

Ron and his wife, Jane, have three children, all of whom are graduates of the University of Wisconsin.
Senator Johnson’s Record in Office as US Senator of Wisconsin

We would have been far better off not spending any of the money and let the recover happen as it was going to happen.

  • In general, Ron Johnson opposed increased government spending and the federal stimulus; instead supporting a broad reduction in federal tax rates, simplifying business regulations, and free-market health care solutions.
  • During the continued controversy over global warming (not climate change), Ron Johnson did not denounce that unusual weather and climate patterns were occurring, but stated that scientists who attribute global warming to man-made causes are crazy, making the theory as lunacy. He stated, which many reputable scientists agree, that climate change is due to

…sunspot activity or just something in the geologic eons of time.

Johnson believes that Cap and Tradelegislation could cost an average Wisconsin family as much as $1,600 per year and would put Wisconsin businesses at a huge competitive disadvantage, damaging our economy for many years. He cosponsored the Energy Tax Prevention Act in order to block the EPA from imposing new rules on carbon emissions.
  • Johnson is opposed to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and in an op-ed article written for the Wall Street Journal, Johnson mentioned his personal experience with his daughter. The act would, Johnson stated:

lead to rationed care, lower the quality of care, increase medical costs, and severely limit medical innovation … this law will add trillions of dollars to our nation’s debt and deficit. …

He is the cosponsorof legislation to suspend implementation of PPACA while legal challenges to the bill are decided.
  • In the argument over more drilling in the United States and its territories and less foreign oil, Senator Johnson was asked about his policy concerning offshore drilling for oil in the Great Lakes, and replied:

We have to get the oil where it is, but we need to do it responsibly. We need to utilize American ingenuity and American technology to make sure we do it environmentally sensitively and safely.

However, in his election campaign, Ron Johnson stated that his answer did not mean he supports drilling in the Great Lakes. However, he also conceded that America’s dependence upon foreign oil creates both security and economic threats to the nation. He is a cosponsor of legislation to encourage job growth, reduce energy costs, and increase tax revenue by expanding domestic oil production.
  • In the area of social issues, Senator Johnson is opposed to same-sex marriage. In a 2010 article at Wisconsin Gazette (August 11th 2010), Johnson defined freedom …

On his website, Johnson declares himself “a pretty traditional guy” and goes on to say that he believes “marriage is between one man and one women.” He assures visitors to his site that he will “take these principles with him to Washington and will stand up to those who would attack these cherished traditional values.”

Partial Comment by GOP aide
The article was not objective concerning Johnson’s policies on the issue. RedState website also sided with Roll Call’s choice of interview of aid who made the comment in image left. He was unjustly attacked with rumors as sources. 
Ultimately, social issues should not be argued at federal government level, but by the individual state levels that are closer to the People. State governments, for example, are in charge of marriage licenses, therefore that government entity must decide. In this, I have voiced my opinion to the office of Senator Johnson. In addition, if the tax code system were changed where income tax was based on a flat tax with NO deductions – this whole argument would be moot. If the state government wants to change the concept of a marriage tradition, which is as old as humanity; than do so in a state referendum vote. It probably would not pass, but then the same-sex couples could just live in common law marriage. Issues like same-sex couples adopting children (or fostering) would have to be dealt with by individual state government as well. The issue of same-sex marriage falls more into the category of religious beliefs, another subject that should not be involving government at any level, unless there is an issue concerning the First Amendment. There are standards of moral and civic values that every society deals with and the government should not interfere unless someone’s rights and liberties (not rights/liberties that interfere with other people’s rights/liberties) are involved. The federal government takes on more power than it is constitutionally allowed, and does not delegate authority to the state governments as intended by the creators of the US Constitution and its amendments.
Ron Johnson’s record of voting is HERE. He is due for reelection in 2016. You can TRACK HIMat the GovTrackwebsite.
His official website is HERE.
Ron Johnson has been politically classified as a moderate, but I am working on changing that to more of a constitutionalist, especially since he has advocated the principles of the Tea Party movement, of which many Republicans have politically used the movement, but failed to enact on policies and actions they have claimed to uphold. Overall, Senator Johnson’s congressional record is above average compared to other so-called Republicans. 
He and other members of Congress need to push harder for a flat income tax system with NO deductions, reducing class nonsense, unfair deduction allowances, intrusion upon personal lives via IRS, reduction of tax fraud, reduction of cost of implementing tax system, No death tax and capital gains/dividends tax, et cetera.
Tax cuts and other quick and special legislation is only a finger in the dike to repair the crack in the federal tax system. Only temporary fixes have occurred.

News Snippets for May 20th, 2012:

  • Button_Newsboy-Extra_animatedUS House Speaker, John Boener (Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (VA), and Majority Whip, Keven McCarthy (CA) have joined House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman, Darrell Issa (CA) in sending a letter to US Attorney General Eric Holder to demand full cooperation with the ongoing Congressional investigation into the “Fast and Furious” operation that the Obama administration has made infamous and caused the death of Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry. (Press Release) The Justice Department is not and has not been cooperating with the committee nor complied with a Congressional subpoena that seeks answers concerning the scandalous operation headed by Eric Holder. It is an enactment of the Obama administration’s policy that it is above the Rule of Law, just as the president has refused subpoenas regarding his alleged falsified documents of Selective Service and Birth Certificate. In addition, in defiance against the Constitution of the United States and the authority of Congress, President Obama has mandated executive orders and policies that are unconstitutional and a few that are not printed in English, which is a violation against fair access to information of American citizens. More details concerning Justice Department and congressional letter here. Darrell Issa is pursuing contempt charges against Eric Holder. Go HERE to sign a petition to indict and/or fire Eric Holder.

Veterans at Army Hospital and Government Legislation

Chuck Norris wrote in his column on November 17th, Visiting Maj. Nidal Hasan’s Hospital published by Human Events about his visit to Brooke Army Medical Center to visit the wounded warriors of our nation after spending a day at the West Point Academy the day before Veteran’s Day.
Mr. Norris and his wife are not arm-chair patriots or have been corrupted by the Hollywood anti-American socialite crowd, they get involved and his article is a heart felt account of his visit to the hospital with casualties and badly burned veterans and providing them encouragement and hope. During his visit, much to his dismay, he found that the perpetuator of the Fort Hood massacre was also in the same hospital and he wrote:

How can one put into words the pride one feels around these brave men and women? Despite the loss of limbs or suffering from some other sacrifice in battle, their resolve and class were off the charts. They were enthusiastic and grateful about our visit, but it was my wife and I who were truly blessed and inspired by them. Then came a moment that would have been completely surreal if it had not been a staggering reality. As we were visiting the burn unit, we discovered that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the shooter at Fort Hood who murdered 13 and wounded another 30, was being treated in the same facility. To be honest, it made me sick to my stomach and sent shivers of disgust down my spine.

If ever I have experienced a polar opposite, it was in the moment when I was thinking about how Hasan is the sheer antithesis to the character, commitment and service of all the other men and women we met at West Point and Fort Sam Houston. I was equally moved by the civic servants and military medical staff, many of whom knew victims of this assassin yet turned immediately around and became his caregivers. They are exemplary models of the patriot and Founding Father Thomas Paine, who said, “He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that (eventually) will reach himself.”

Please take the time to follow the link to read his full article. It is interesting and inspiring.

Meanwhile, Cato Institute released a report concerning the health care bill that passed the House and went to the Senate:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released a Senate version of the government health care overhaul, weighing in at a massive 2,074 pages. McClatchy news reports, “The Senate Thursday began what promises to be a bitter, lengthy battle over the future of health care in America, and taxes, abortion, affordability and federal deficits emerged as key flashpoints. Senate Democratic leaders expect the first test vote on their new $848 billion, 2,074-page health care overhaul bill will come on Saturday evening. Although Democrats are likely to get the 60 votes they need to move forward with the debate, the outcome is uncertain.”

Despite a majority of Americans who say they don’t want it, the Democrats and some Republicans are still insisting to pass something and each time they have collaborated on changes to the monster legislation it grows in number of pages.
According to the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) this bill, if passed will cost the American taxpayers $848 billion over a period of ten years, which will mean that new taxes will be imposed and prescription drug prices will increase because of it. Michael F. Cannon, Cato director of health policy studies, stated that the –

$848 billion only accounts for part of the federal government’s share of the tab:

Private-sector mandates–the legal requirements that individuals and employers purchase health insurance — accounted for 60 percent of total costs.  That suggests that if the Reid bill’s cost to federal and state governments is $1 trillion, then the total cost is probably $2.5 trillion, and Harry Reid — like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — is hiding $1.5 trillion of the cost of his bill. Without a cost estimate of the private-sector mandates, Reid has not yet satisfied the request made by eight Democratic senators for a “complete CBO score” of the bill 72 hours prior to floor consideration. Fortunately, by law, the CBO must eventually score the private-sector mandates.  When that happens, the CBO will reveal costs that the bills’ authors are trying to hide. The House passed its bill without a complete CBO score.  The Senate should not follow suit.

Pressure from the White House and the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi caused members of the House of Representatives to pass a bill that didn’t have a CBO study attached. Which means they don’t care what it costs as long as it gets passed, and if the American people are against it – why are they so zealous to pass it when the continue with the rhetoric that it is for the good of America and its people? How can any legislation be good if it punishes people for not participating through fines? How is that going to help the economic duress that Americans have been facing – with little hope for economic recovery between state and federal government continuing to increase taxes or pass legislation that increases the cost of living?
The estimated cost what the CBO produces is probably not what it will really cost – history of our government proves this. And, contrary to what some members of Congress believe – the legislation, once approved, will be difficult to get rid of later, when it is found to be an albatross hanging from the American people’s neck. The income tax system and the 16th Amendment prove this. Despite being inefficient, intrusive and unconstitutional, Congress and several presidents in the past have not pushed to rid America of such a draconian tax system.
Today is the day of reckoning for the US Senate.
In Wisconsin, my representative in the state legislature has informed me that the auto insurance amendment passed in the state budget bill on April 10th 2009 will increase Wisconsin auto insurance premiums between 33% to 43%. Wisconsin residents are upset, but could they really expect? Each time Governor Doyle has been elected or reelected he has immediately pushed to raise taxes to cover overspending of the state’s government. It boggles my logic and understanding as to how Wisconsin voters would vote for someone like Jim Doyle. As Rep. Bies stated in his email update, From the West Wing:

First of all, as I mentioned in that April update, these auto insurance provisions should never have been in the budget.  They bore no fiscal impact upon the state, they neither increase nor decreased revenues or expenditures.  Yet they were included, and passed.  Why?  Because the Democrats did not want to have to deal with the public outcry against these provisions had they been required to go through the normal legislative process.

Don’t ever let a Democrat snowball you by stating he/she believes in a transparent government. The DNC has been a nest of culprits that belong in the Culture of Corruption hall of fame – along with too many Republicans. In state and federal legislatures the American voter needs to clean house – and then insist that all legislation be reviewed for amendment or throw in the garbage where it belongs. In addition, state and federal governments need to create a bill that will no longer allow inserts of legislation that should stand on its own and has nothing to do with a bill’s intent or subject material. No more sneaking in bills. And that brings up the topic that legislatures will complain about sneaking in bills, but this only reveals that before it is voted upon and passed – they don’t read it! In addition, the governor or the President of the United States apparently don’t read what they sign. This must stop – forever. It is about time that public servants begin to earn their money and have the mindset that they are servants of the People, and not the other way around.
So you can see that Americans, We the People, must clean out state legislatures and governor offices, just as Congress needs to be cleaned out and the American voter begins to perform their rights and duties as a voter responsibly. It is the only way that true reform is going to happen and our nation returns to the republican form of government that Thomas Jefferson wrote about and what the Patriots and Founders worked so hard to achieve.
America wants common sense legislation, not another brick to add to the growing wall of Big Government.

Voters Elect Congressional Constitutional Illiterates

Patriot Post queried the honest question to members of Congress that supposedly the taxpaying citizens elected to run our government:

Where is the constitutional authority for a federal mandate that individuals must buy health insurance?

Sen. Ben Nelson, a Democrat in red-state Nebraska, pleaded the Fifth: “Well, you know, uh, uh, I don’t know that I’m a constitutional scholar, so, I, I’m not going to be able to answer that question.”

Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-HI) likewise dodged the question, saying, “I’m not aware of [any constitutional authority], let me put it that way. But what we’re trying to do is to provide for people who have needs and that’s where the accessibility comes in, and one of the goals that we’re trying to present here is to make it accessible.” Right. “Provide” for them by mandating they do something under penalty of massive fines and/or imprisonment — that’s leftist “compassion” for you.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) answered, “The United States Congress passed laws regarding Medicare and Medicaid that became de facto mandatory programs. States all the time require people to have driver’s licenses. I think that this is a bit of a spurious argument that’s being made by some folks.” Uh, states require licenses only for theprivilege of driving.

So the question that immediately pops into one’s mind – Why in the blazes did the people of those states and districts elect people like the above to the US Congress of the United States
If one takes the time to look up the voting record of these pretend statesmen, we immediately find that they are not statesmen in the true sense of the word, nor the protector of the Constitution as their office oath requires to be sworn to when taking that office.

And, we can also discover by these questions where the gist of the blame is when it comes to how operates our government and what kind of person the people choose.
So, if society is initially to blame for who runs our government – just who is serving whom?
Then, one could surmise that it is society who must first reform itself in order to achieve reformation of a government For the People and By the People and not the other way around.
Senator Ben Nelson stated he wasn’t a constitutional scholar. No one expects him to be as knowledgeable as a Supreme Court justice is expected to be, but he is voting on legislation that does not require a constitutional scholar to understand its implications and impact on the American people, if he indeed read it any of it and the several amendments attached since. However, it was reported two days ago that Senator Nelson was intending to join those blocking the Obamacare legislation.
Senator Daniel Akaka’s answer was typical side-stepping politician answers that says something but means nothing.
And Senator Mark Warner is a real winner – Americans are privileged to be allowed to operate a motor vehicle!  Did you know that you are driving your car because the government benevolent enough to allow you to? Senator Warner is one of the Pelosi elite that want Americans to be forced to have healthcare insurance or be fined and/or jailed.
Where do these people come from? I don’t know, I didn’t vote to have them elected. So where is the gist of the blame for all of this?

If our government is a microcosm of our society, our society is deeply in trouble and morally and intellectually bankrupt. Now you know why Thomas Jefferson insisted that the American people be educated and not illiterate – it makes better citizens and creates a better life for those citizens. And when I say education, I am not referring to the learning from textbooks that contain the politically correct ideologists that mandate that anything else is wrong – I am talking about fundamental education and the teaching of how our government was established, the people who established it, and how it is supposed to operate, and why. I am not talking about textbooks that teach theory as fact and promote misinformation in the name of a consensus promoted by junk scientists and self-serving politicians.
When a senator in the United States Congress cannot understand the simple language in the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights – how in blazes can he possibly understand the US tax code or the Obamacare legislation they are trying to pass? It is not written in simple language, nor is it brief and to the point. They purposefully write it that way.
As far as the latest move against US Constitution, Bill of Rights and liberties established by the founders of our government and nation, Patriot Post’s Mark Alexander stated concerning the cold-hearted socialist from California, senior elitist in the so-called Democratic Party of the United States in The Digest of November 13th, 2001:

The Constitution took a beating Saturday night when the House passed its 2,000-page version of ObamaCare by a 220-215 vote. Only one Republican, Joseph Cao ofNew Orleans, voted for the $1 trillion bill, while 39 Democrats voted against it. But Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) didn’t dwell on the bipartisan opposition to this legislative disgrace, instead saying, “We’re glad to take responsibility for this bill. And the credit.” Famous last words?  Perhaps. Pelosi has reportedly informed fellow Democrats that she is willing to lose seats in 2010 to get health care “reform” passed. And why not? As Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto quipped, “At 69, Pelosi stands a good chance of facing a death panel before she leads a majority of this size again.”

And in regards to the ObamaCare and subsequent amendments like the public option:

it was likely a hollow victory anyway, as House Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA) says there is “no guarantee” the amendment will survive. In fact, the real “right to life” issue is that every medical decision may soon be subject to both political and budgetary considerations. What ever happened to the old liberal slogan, “Keep your laws off my body“?

Furthermore, the bill raises a tax issue. … That’s a 69 percent increase, the result of which will be less investment, lower stock prices, economic turmoil and a drop in tax revenue. Of course, revenue is one of the gimmicks in the bill — the Senate bill counts on 10 years of new taxes to pay for just seven years of spending. And it includes a government-run long-term insurance program that begins collecting premiums in 2011 but waits until 2016 to pay benefits.

The Queen of Socialism, Pelosi, who stated that those who dissent or are against the Democratic Party’s socialist agenda are “un-American“, and Shuler says is misunderstood has no qualms about passing a law that would fine people and/or put them in jail due to this Obamacare package that is so good for the American people that the congressional members and government are exempt. Imagine if a private entity insurance company told you that they were collecting premiums as of January 2010, but you wouldn’t be covered until 2015? For those of you who have either decided not to get involved, or believed in the motto: Change You Can Believe In, or were just too busy or lazy to contact your representative and senators about this important issue – this is what you will get if the legislation is passed into law – and it will be if it reaches President Obama’s desk for signature, because unlike what he promised when he wanted your vote, he won’t read before signing. Not that he probably would understand what he is reading even if he did.
Mark Alexander also noted something else in this so-called Obamacare legislation – a tort provision:

One other notable stinker is a tort provision that gives “incentive payments” to states that come up with “alternative medical liability law” that encourages “fair resolution” of disputes and “maintains access to affordable liability insurance.” The catch is that states can’t “limit attorneys’ fees or impose caps on damages.” DNC Chair Howard Dean was right: Democrats don’t have the guts to stand up to their ambulance-chasing sugar daddies.

Meanwhile, some 11 amendments requiring members of Congress to be enrolled in the public plan were rejected by Democrats. What’s good for the goose is apparently not so appealing to the gander.

Not only has those the People elected come to think they are above the law, they now think that whatever they legislate is only for other Americans, not themselves. Isn’t this alone proof of guilt in what has been said of this move against an issue involving 1/6th of our nation’s economy, while they now control the banks, financial institutions, energy and automobile industries? Mr. Obama is not the initial culprit of this takeover – but he certainly has accelerated it.
This proposed legislation, folks, has nothing to do with what is good for the People, it is another brick in the wall they are building in the foundation of a socialist America and what they deem a better world through government – not By The People and certainly not For the People.
Meanwhile, as anger and outrage germinates among the populace, the media and those in charge of our government are categorizing citizens voicing their stance against the circumstances and the people who have altered our government to the intrusive and powerful impact it has on our every day lives – taxation without representation, increased taxation instead of reduced spending, taxing money that has already been taxed (income tax, excise tax, surtax, et cetera); and unconstitutional mandates all amount to what caused the revolution that severed ourselves from the government of Great Britain in 1776 to be likened with terrorist cells and violent paramilitary groups. The National Tea Party movement has been described by the media as angry, fanatical citizens (look at photos of these rallies and please show me where you see a crazed fanatic among the tens of thousands present) – when in fact they are the citizens up to this point been the silent majority. Well, they are no longer silent, and as the 2008 election demonstrates, no longer a majority either. It is their fault for being silent for too long. In a way, one can sympathize that they were more concerned with their personal life situations like raising families and pursuing their American Dream – but now see all those dreams burned in the fires of those who are against the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights unless it can be tailored to match with their agenda to create an Americanized version of the socialist, nanny state. They were silent too long, they were apathetic too long – they and America can no longer stand another day of appeasement to those who destroy what made America great and what created our nation.
Yes, there is a revolution going on, but not like the one in 1776, yet. In fact, it has already started, just that not everyone has noticed. It is not an armed rebellion, not in the eyes of a true patriot, but a rebellion against tyranny to PREVENT violence. If there are angry citizens it is because politicians in Washington and state governments are not listening. They are content with politics as usual and business as usual with private sector special interests and that, like in the past, voters have a short-term memory.
Will you sit idly by and prove them correct?
The revolution is not against just the Obama administration, but all members of the US Congress and state governments that ignore what has been written in the Constitution and its Bill of Rights – and they ignore the people that put them in their position in the first place. I admit that there are those out there in America who are against Mr. Obama because of his race, but that is not the case of the rest of grassroot America who now stands up after two other presidents and other US congresses that has continued the shredding of the documents that guarantee life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. For too long we have listened to their copout diatribe about the evil corporate empires being at fault for what is taking place in our nation, and indeed this has some truth to it and only because those evil empires are funding those tyrants that sit in Congress and the Oval Office. An individual or an entity cannot cry foul if they are part of the corruptive process that say is the cause of our economic depression, our cost-of-living crisis and our poor world standing in education and world trade.
The time to act is now, and by action I mean standing up those who believe they can run your life better than you can. The busy bodies of the neighborhood is in Washington DC and your state government capitols and they are gaining more and more power that will not be for the better. We have seen how well socialism works in Europe and watch it grow to communism and fascism. Why in blazes would we want to emulate something that not only doesn’t work well – but takes away the freedom and liberties we have come to take for granted?
I don’t want my rights and liberties taken away, and I don’t want to see our nation become a police state, a nation of unrest, anarchy amid violent eruptions from fanatics who easily swell their ranks because of dissent against people within our government who no longer care what the people say, much yet what they think.
This nation was created with the rule of law, not the rule of the mob – I want it to not only remain so, but be reformed back to when it was a republic and under the same guidelines set forth – minus the 3-cornered hat, buckled shoes and powdered wigs.
Ideas never truly die in history, like fashions. And the ideas set forth by 56 men who founded our nation is certainly ideas and philosophy we must never lose, and indeed sell to the rest of the nations of the Earth.
