The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout; 
But there is no joy in Mudville . . .”

Paul Revere Soapbox

America has apparently decided that obeying the Constitution is “extremist” and they would rather take the non-extremist position that America should officially become a Fascist Police State.

Take a look at recent headlines:

  • Obama seizes N.M. land
  • The federal government can prevent American farmers from participating in the free market
  • White House ‘picking up the pace’ on executive actions
  • Federal ‘Biosurveillance’ Plan Seeking Direct Access to Americans’ Private Medical Records
  • New Technology Could Allow Government To ‘Turn Off’ Your Gun
  • Michelle Obama tells students to monitor family members for ‘racial insensitivity’
  • This Veterans Hospital Death Panel Is a Preview of Life Under Obamacare
  • Obama on Benghazi: ‘It’s Not Serious’
  • Judicial Watch’s IRS Investigation Leads Directly to Washington
  • Obama VA Scandal: Racehorse California Chrome Gets Faster Health Care Ruling Than Our Veterans Left to Die
  • The Part of the Obama Administration That’s Supposed to Help U.S. Workers Is Calling for More Foreign Labor

The American voters, in their “infinite wisdom” have decided that the events chronicled above are to become the “new American norm”. Our president has become a dictator, and he wields unlimited and unchecked power to force his dictates on Americans through the Internal Revenue Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Land Management, the Justice Department, and the number of federal “SWAT Teams” that are growing exponentially.

Will Rogers once said, “It’s a good thing the American people aren’t getting all the government they’re paying for.” Well, TODAY THEY ARE GETTING IT – AND THEY HAVE VOTED FOR IT !!!!

Just about the same

“If you ever injected truth into politics you would have no politics.” ― Will Rogers

What does Mitch McConnell really believe?

The Republican Leader used to stand against ObamaCare. He told conservatives that Obama’s health care takeover should be repealed “root and branch.” 

But his opposition seems to be wavering. He refused to stand with real Conservatives like Ted Cruz to defund ObamaCare. He refused to fight to protect you from Obama’s train wreck. He helped the Progressives fund ObamaCare and destroy our health care system.

Now, Mitch McConnell doesn’t want to stop ObamaCare – he wants to “fix it.” He recently told Kentuckians that “we’re going to figure out a way to get this fixed.” 

McConnell doesn’t get it. Conservatives don’t want to “fix” ObamaCare. We want the federal government to get out of the health care business. We want real Conservatives in Congress to stand up against Obama. We want Conservatives who will fight to repeal ObamaCare and save the economy from radical progressive policies.

Mitch McConnell’s positions are like an Easter egg hunt: you never know what you’re going to get. First he’s against ObamaCare. Then he votes to fund it. Now he wants to fix it. Does that mean he’ll help save ObamaCare?

That’s not conservative. And it’s not real leadership.

We need to take action as American citizens before it is too late‏

The following is an essay on the current state of affairs in our country. What are our Republican representatives doing to stop this travesty? Our first defense against these transgressions must be at the polls, and we need to vote for candidates who will not sit idly by why these things are happening.

Notre Dame Professor on Obamacare – Everyone, and I mean everyone, needs to read this. 

She is right on target…hard to deny she is correct even if you are a liberal!

By Laura Hollis, a professor at the University of Notre Dame:


The unveiling of the dictatorial debacle that is Obamacare absolutely flabbergasts me. It is stunning on so many levels, but the most shocking aspect of it for me is watching millions of free Americans stand idly by while this man, his minions in Congress and his cheerleaders in the press systematically dismantle our Constitution, steal our money, and crush our freedoms.

The President, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (with no small help from Justice John Roberts) take away our health care, and we allow it. They take away our insurance, and we allow it. They take away our doctors, and we allow it. They charge us thousands of dollars more a year, and we allow it.  They make legal products illegal, and we allow it.  They cripple our businesses, and we allow it. They announce by fiat that we must ignore our most deeply held beliefs – and we allow it.

Where is your spine,  America ?

Yes, I know people are complaining.  I read the news on the Internet.  I read blogs. I have a Twitter feed. So what? People in the  Soviet Union complained.  People in  Cuba complain.  People in  China complain (quietly). Complaining isn’t the same thing as doing anything about it.  In fact, much of the complaining that we hear sounds like resignation:  Wow. This sucks.  Oh well, this is the way things are.  Too bad.  Perhaps you need reminding of a few important facts. Here goes:

1. The President is not a king.  Barack Obama does not behave like a President, an elected official, or someone who realizes that he works for us.  He behaves like a king, a dictator – someone who believes that his own pronouncements have the force of law, and who thinks he can dispense with the law’s enforcement when he deigns to do so. And those of us who object?  How dare we?  Racists!  And while he moves steadily “forward” with his plans to “fundamentally transform” the greatest country in human history, he distracts people with cheap, meaningless trivialities, like “free birth control pills”! (In fact, let’s face it: this administration’s odd obsession with sex in general – Birth control!  Abortion!  Sterilization!  Gay guys who play basketball! — is just plain weird.  Since when did the leader of the free world care so much about how people have sex, who they have it with, and what meds they use when they have it? Does he have nothing more important to concern himself with?)
 
2. It isn’t just a failed software program; it is a failed philosophy. People are marveling that Healthcare.gov was such a spectacular failure. Well, if one is only interested in it as a product launch, I’ve explained some of the reasons for that here.  But the larger point is that it isn’t a software failure, or even a product failure; it is a philosophy failure.  I have said this before: Obama is not a centrist; he is a central planner.  And this – all of it: the disastrous computer program, the hundreds of millions of dollars wasted, the lies, the manipulation of public opinion, the theft of the public’s money and property, and freedom (read insurance, and premiums, and doctors) — IS what central planning looks like.  The central premise of central planning is that a handful of wunderkinds with your best interests at heart (yeah, right) know better than you what’s good for you. The failure of such a premise and the misery it causes have been clear from the dawn of humanity. Kings and congressmen, dictators and Dear Leaders, potentates, princes and presidents can all fall prey to the same imperial impulses: “we know what is good for ‘the people.’  And they are always wrong.  There is a reason that the only times communism has really been tried have been after wars, revolutions, or coups d’état. You have to have complete chaos for people to be willing to accept the garbage that centralized planning produces. Take the  Soviet Union , for example. After two wars, famine, and the collapse of the Romanov dynasty, why wouldn’t people wait in line for hours to buy size 10 shoes? Or settle for the gray matter that passed for meat in the grocery stores?  But communism’s watered-down cousin, socialism, isn’t much better. Ask the Venezuelans who cannot get toilet paper. Toilet paper. ¡Viva la Revolución!
Contrary to what so many who believe in a “living Constitution” say, the Founding Fathers absolutely understood this.  That is why the Constitution was set up to limit government power. (Memo to the President: the drafters of the Constitution deliberately didn’t say “what government had to do on your behalf”).  They understood that that was the path to folly, fear, and famine.
 
3. Obama is deceitful.   Just as the collapse of the computer program should not surprise anyone, neither should we be shocked that the President lied about his healthcare plan.  Have any of you been paying attention over the past few years?  Obama has made no secret of his motivations or his methods.  The philosophies which inspire him espouse deceit and other vicious tactics. (Don’t take my word for it: read Saul Alinsky.) Obama infamously told reporter Richard Wolffe,  “You know, I actually believe my own bullshit.”  He has refused to be forthcoming about his past (where are his academic records?).  His own pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, told author Ed Klein, that Obama said to him, “You know what your problem is?  You have to tell the truth.” Did Obama lie when he said dozens of times, “If you like your plan, you can keep it. Period!”?  Of course he did.  That’s what he does.
 
4. The media is responsible. And had the media been doing their jobs, we would have known a lot of this much, much earlier.  The press is charged with the sacred responsibility of protecting the people from the excesses of government. Our press has been complicit, incompetent, or corrupt.  Had they vetted this man in 2008, as they would have a Republican candidate, we would have known far more about him than we do, even now.  Had they pressed for more details about Obamacare, Congress’ feet would have been held to the fire.  Had they done their jobs about Eric Holder, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, NSA spying – or any of the other myriad betrayals of the public trust that this administration has committed, Obama would likely have lost his 2012 reelection campaign. (A fact that even The Washington Post has tacitly acknowledged.  Well done, fellas! Happy now?)  Instead, they turned a blind eye, even when they knew he was lying, abusing power, disregarding the limits of the Constitution.  It was only when he began to spy on them, and when the lies were so blatant that the lowest of low-information voters could figure it out that they realized they had to report on it. (Even in the face of blatant, deliberate and repeated lies, The New York Times has the audacity to tell us that the President “misspoke.”) They have betrayed us, abandoned us, and deceived us.
 
5. Ted Cruz was right.  So was Sarah Palin.  The computer program is a disaster.  The insurance exchanges are a disaster.  What’s left?  The healthcare system itself.  And this, of necessity, will be a disaster, too.  Millions of people have lost their individual insurance plans.  In 2015, millions more will lose their employer-provided coverage (a fact which the Obama administration also knew, and admitted elsewhere).  The exorbitant additional costs that Obamacare has foisted on unsuspecting Americans are all part of a plan of wealth confiscation and redistribution.  That is bad enough. But it will not end there.  When the numbers of people into the system and the corresponding demand for care vastly exceed the cost projections (and they will, make no mistake), then the rationing will start.  Not only choice at that point, but quality and care itself will go down the tubes.  And then will come the decisions made by the Independent Payment Advisory Board about what care will be covered (read “paid for”) and what will not.  That’s just a death panel, put politely. In fact, progressives are already greasing the wheels for acceptance of that miserable reality as well.  They’re spreading the lie that it will be about the ability of the dying to refuse unwanted or unhelpful care.  Don’t fall for that one, either. It will be about the deaths that inevitably result from decisions made by people other than the patients, their families, and their physicians. (Perhaps it’s helpful to think of their assurances this way:  “If you like your end-of-life care, you can keep your end-of-life-care.”)
 
6. We are not SUBJECTS. (or, Nice Try, the Tea Party Isn’t Going Away).  We have tolerated these incursions into our lives and livelihoods too long already. There is no end to the insatiable demand “progressives” have to remake us in their image.  Today it is our insurance, our businesses, our doctors, our health care.  Tomorrow some new crusade will be announced that enables them to take over other aspects of our formerly free lives.  I will say it again: WE ARE NOT SUBJECTS. Not only is the Tea Party right on the fiscal issues, but it appears that they are more relevant than ever.  We fought a war once to prove we did not want to be the subjects of a king, and the  Boston Tea Party was just a taste of the larger conflict to come.  If some people missed that lesson in history class, we can give them a refresher.  The 2014 elections are a good place to start. Call your representative, your senator, your candidate and tell them: “We are not subjects. You work for us. And if the word “REPEAL” isn’t front and center in your campaign, we won’t vote for you. Period.”

“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power not longer susceptible of any definition.”Thomas Jefferson

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” – Thomas Jefferson

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
