A Piece of History to Learn From

This is an incident I was totally unaware of. I have always wondered what would happen if “we the people” decided we have had enough. This video answers the question. It also answers why the local police are equipping themselves with armored cars, and military trained policemen.

Here  is another more recent example of how our government reacts to an organized citizen protest.

Why am I worried about these things? What will happen if our economy collapses and the country comes to a standstill. Bread costs a hundred dollars a loaf if you can find it, milk is two hundred dollars a gallon if you can find it, cars are out of gas and left where they did. No body works, and you begin to tear the woodwork off your house to fuel a fire to keep warm. What will happen then? The president will declare martial law, and suspend the Constitution. He becomes a dictator to save the country. He decides which camp you will call home from this point on. You will be killed if caught on the streets after curfew. We learn to live by a new set of rules, and our dream to enact term limits has vaporized. What will you do? The government is training for what they will do, but we will be an untrained chaotic mob.

I would rather solve the problem before we get to this point. That is why our government has to live within the constraint of a budget and not spend more than it can afford. Overspending will ultimately result in economic collapse.

Call your Representative today and demand that he/she support spending cuts, and the repeal of the ACA.

Liar in Chief

Machiavelli: The end justifies the means

What better way to rationalize why Obama does what he does. He lies to the American people and sells the lie as snake oil. Some pundits like to call the lies “Kool Aid.”

There is no question that Obama pulled a fast one on us. He knew outright that his signature health care bill would not make it through Congress if it contained the word TAX. Congress also knew it. They argued among themselves to change the word tax to mandate. I wouldn’t doubt they also knew a mandate would never get through the Supreme Court, but a tax would.  Obama and the Democrat Congress perpetrated a massive deception to put one sixth of the economy into government control. How else can the Socialists complete their agenda without control?

Did Obama care a hoot about the millions of unemployed? Nope, he didn’t. Why? Because he is able to borrow money and soothe the pain for those who lost jobs. Whose money does he borrow? The money needed by my grandkids to survive. Does he care? Nope. All Obama wants is to level the playing field of humanity. He truly believes that all humans should have equal outcomes. That means we have a long way to go to level out with his Kenyan brothers. How else will he share the wealth? The African people have had their continent for as many years as the Europeans have had  the European continent. Yet, Europeans are further ahead of Africans, and God love us Americans are further than Europeans.

We didn’t get to where we are because we believe in equal outcomes. We are where we are because we believe in the individual’s ability to make his dreams come true given the liberty to do so. America certainly didn’t achieve greatness built on lies.

Here is a bit of advice for the Kool Aid drinkers of America. Teach your kids to lie, cheat, scheme, and abdicate responsibility, it’s the RIGHT THING TO DO  in a Progressive world.

We Must Practice What He Preached

I love Thomas Jefferson. He is a model of conservatism. This list spells out his life and his wisdom. Every kid in the USA should memorize the brilliant quotes below. 

This is amazing. There are two parts. Be sure to read the 2nd part (in RED), which is his advice.

 Thomas Jefferson was a very remarkable man who started learning very early in life and never stopped.

At 5, began studying under his cousin’s tutor.

 At 9, studied Latin, Greek and French.

 At 14, studied classical literature and additional languages.

 At 16, entered the College of William and Mary.

 At 19, studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe.

 At 23, started his own law practice.

 At 25, was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses.

 At 31, wrote the widely circulated “Summary View of the Rights of British America and retired from his law practice.

 At 32, was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress.

 At 33, wrote the Declaration of Independence .

 At 33, took three years to revise Virginia ‘s legal code and wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for ReligiousFreedom.

 At 60, obtained the Louisiana Purchase , doubling the nation’s size.

 At 61, was elected to a second term as President.

 At 65, retired to Monticello .

 At 80, helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine.

 At 81, almost single-handedly created the University of Virginia , and served as its first president.

 At 83, died on the 50th anniversary of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence, along with John Adams

 Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, his laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today. Jefferson really knew his stuff. A voice from the past to lead us in the future:

 John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

 “When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe .” — 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

 “It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.”— Thomas Jefferson

 “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” — Thomas Jefferson

 “My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.” — Thomas Jefferson

 “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” — Thomas Jefferson

 “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”— Thomas Jefferson

 “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” — Thomas Jefferson

 “To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”— Thomas Jefferson

 Thomas Jefferson said in 1802: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
