Tea Party Express–New Lenox, IL

TeaParty_20090907_190Tea Party Express Staff and ScheduleThis Labor Day was the most unusual I have ever spent. I participated in a Tea Party Express rally in New Lenox, a small town just west of Frankfort. A few years ago, the population of New Lenox, IL was around four thousand. Today it has around sixteen thousand. What happened yesterday, jammed the town and all the public facilities. People came from all around the southwest side of Chicago to protest big government taking over our liberties. This is Obama’s backyard, yet the people here feel betrayed by the man. His promise of change was sold under the banner of something good for the country. It is not, and we see it for what it is. The man needs to be impeached before he wrecks the constitution and the country. We also need to impeach Dickie Durbin, and Debbie Halvorson. They are rubber stamping Obamaphites of the enth magnitude. They don’t  read, challenge, or debate anything the man promotes. They just vote yes for everything despite major input from their constituents to the contrary. They know better than the six million voters of Illinois.

The rally was peaceful. We opened with the pledge of allegiance to the flag; novel concept right? The crowd placed great emphasis on the word God during the pledge. I heard estimates of eight thousand and ten thousand people crowding the grassy entertainment bowl. We had to park a mile away. The weather was perfect this time. The speakers were passionate, and told their personal stories about how they became involved. All of them were tired of doing nothing as they watched our elected representatives do the opposite of their requests. None of them had any experience in politics or in organizing a political rally, but their passion to do something drove them to make the effort to create a difference.

There were ten thousand people objecting to big government, over spending, abuse of the constitution, government run health care, and high taxes. Only six protesters, who were in favor of  health care reform, showed themselves. All of them were civilized. One was a respectable elderly black man, and the rest were middle aged ladies. All held up pre-printed signs (shown below). 

I looked for news regarding the event and found a report from ABC channel seven news at five o’clock. Their report was accurate, but was marred with a closing statement by Joe Biden (I didnt see him there.) about how well the stimulus is working, and how the unemployed are receiving unemployment compensation.

It was told to me that ABC network news reported the crowd to be a few hundred people who were rowdy.

I commend and thank Tim Kraulidis for planning this great event.

The pictures tell the true story.

“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!”

I am really concerned about the lack of understanding regarding the president’s address to the nation’s school children. Why is it harmful for the president talking about the value of staying in school, right?  I agree, he is the  Commander In Chief.  He should be the role model for the nation. Presidents G H W Bush, and Reagan also addressed  school children. George W Bush was urged to read books to school kids  by his school teacher wife Laura. The message was that “learning to read is important.” President Reagan’s message to older children was a civics lesson. President George Hiram Walker Bush’s message was on the value of education and  the importance it plays in your success in life.

I am positive that all of these men, including Obama had, or have honorable intentions. Where I see the potential danger in Obama’s address comes from his radical ideas, and his socialist agenda. Yeah, yeah, he is just going to give the kids a pep talk about school. People old enough to have lived through some history, know that former dictatorial governments began seducing the youth of their countries with honorable activites. There are two that come to mind: 1.) Hitler Jugend and 2.) Young Pioneers, both were formed to take advantage of, and to brainwash kids to work toward  organization objectives as adults. If I could believe Obama loves the USA as much as I do, I wouldn’t be afraid nor imply that he has something else in mind for our kids. The bottom line is that I believe Obama’s “Change We Can Believe In,” is to ruin our capitalist way of life by converting us into a socialist state. Is he planting a seed of change in our schools?

“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!”

— Adolf Hitler, speech at the Reichsparteitag, 1935

Which Will It Be? Human Potential, Or Human Destruction?

Abraham Maslow created a theory which is presented graphically with the pyramid shown at the left in the cartoon below.  His theory is broadly taught in classes about human potential and motivation. I for one, strongly agree with his analysis. When a person is hungry, and cold without food or shelter, it is very hard for him to think about finding himself. All he thinks about is where the next meal is coming from. My life has closely followed this pyramid of needs. I am first now, at age seventy-something working at self actualization. It wasn’t easy to get to this point in life, and now I see a threat to my actually reaching the top of the pyramid. The threat is the “Wedge of Destruction,” as shown in the right panel of the cartoon. It represents the complete opposite of the pyramid of needs. It is a reverse pyramid, balanced on its tip. It is bound to fail, but not without destroying the USA in the process. We are headed toward becoming a “banana republic” which is mediocrity at its best. Let’s continue to redistribute the wealth, lose  liberties, and allow the government to make us wards of the state by complete submission.

Maslow's Pyriamid Of Need vs Obama's Wedge of Destruction

Two Barry’s

Have you ever heard of Barry? I’m not speaking of Barack “Barry” Obama, I speak of Barry Goldwater. Mr. Goldwater was a US Senator from Arizona in the nineteen sixties.  Goldwater was the most conservative Senator ever to be elected in the modern USA. His book “Conscience of a Conservative” was a best seller, and is considered to be the credo of the conservative political movement.

I learned of Barry Goldwater from a colleague at my first job out of college. My friend was also a recent college grad. He had become a staunch conservative after reading Senator Goldwater’s book. We spoke often of the Constitution and the principles of conservatism; love of God and country, small government, low taxes. We spoke of  the vision the founding fathers had for this new country. They had had it with a dictator king, and the unfair taxes imposed upon them. They were tired of the King deciding what was good for his subjects, and how to worship.  They wanted liberty to determine the course of their own lives. The idea of the king deciding for them was an atrocious concept.

The new citizens coming to the soil of North America were from many countries. They were immigrants. They fled their homelands in search of religious freedom. They came from England, Holland, France, Spain, and Germany. All across europe the citizens were unhappy with the way the kings ruled, and kept their subjects in abject poverty, while the aristocracy became fat.  The only way out was to revolt, or to leave. Many revolted, others left. The ones that left formed the greatest country in the world. The ones that revolted, suffered at the expense of the kings. Eventually, European countries backed away from monarchial rule and formed governments ruled by the people. Many kept thier monarchies as figure heads of the past.

One of the largest revolutions occurred in Russia. Lenin and Stalin imposed an even greater evil upon the people in the form of socialism. Yes, they forced the country from a monarchy into collective socialism.  They made it happen by slaughtering millions of good Russian people. Along came another great idealist. His name was Hitler. He decided that the people of Germany needed a change. The German people were sick of being ruled by the Kaiser. Hitler wanted the people to have socialism. He wanted it so much that he went to war over it. He wanted to convert all of Europe to his style of socialism, even Russia.

By this time the little country formed by immigrants from all of these countries had to step in and stop the mayhem. It was called World War Two. The USA, founded on the principles of a belief in God, and Liberty, had to become the salvation of the western world. The USA beat Hitler at a huge cost of blood and lives. Instead of challenging Russia, we made them allies in order to defeat Hitler.  Eventually, Ronald Reagan beat communism in the nineteen eighties. The great Soviet Union went broke trying to convert the world to socialism at the expense of their people.

Now we have a new “Barry.” He is Barack “Barry” Obama. This man should know better having been educated in the best schools in the USA. Like Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler, he too espouses the concept of “socialism.” He hasn’t learned from history that socialism,  and a welfare state is a failure. Instead, he insists on changing our great country into a socialist state as fast as he can.  He has used the economic meltdown as a shield to force congress to pass legislation that will create  government so huge it will self destruct.

 It may be my warped mind, but all I  can think is that the subjects of  history, and political science are being slanted  by socialist leaning liberal college tenures. In the fifty years since Barry Goldwater wrote his conservative credo, our scholastic instituions have created several generations socialist leaning  people. At the same time, our government, in all of its benevolence, has done an outstanding job of creating a population of uneducated welfare recipients.

The result is that Barry Obama is leading the citizenry of the USA,  with an army of socialist college grads, and welfare dependents toward atheism, and total  government subjugation under the manifesto of “Change We Can Believe In.”.

When will we wake up and understand that we are being led down the path toward a new era of modern slavery?

Slavery to Slavery?

I got to thinking about those trillions the government is throwing at earmark projects called stimulus. I asked myself how many people could a trillion dollars really help?  I looked at three items that people spend money on: house, car, and college education.

Here is how it works out:

1. How many $200,000.00  houses can one buy for a trillion? A two hundred thousand dollar house is probably affordable for most of the population.

ans: Five million

2. How many cars valued at $25,000.00 each? Not a Lexus or Cadillac, but a Ford Focus will get you to where you need to go.

ans: Forty million.

3. How many students could spend $40,000.00 on college tuition?  This one assumes you spend three hundred dollars per credit hour and you require one hundred and thirty credits to get a degree, and live with your parents.

ans: Twenty five  million five hundred thousand.

A trillion dollars given away in this fashion would most likely stimulate the economy. Instead we will direct the money through a filter called “government.”  The end result will be that only a third will get to the consumer. The remainder will be lost in management fees. In big government management fees are more commonly referred to as GRAFT.

What BHO failed to tell the people of the USA is that his redistribution of wealth will make everyone in the country a slave. By robbing the rich to give to the poor, the result will make everyone poor.

The direction of the country toward “Change You Can Believe In,” will bankrupt the treasury. The end result is that the greatest country in the history of the earth will become  a slave to the countries who buy our debt.

Barack likes to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln. While Lincoln freed a small number of the population who were slaves, Barack will enslave the entire country. How will that happen?

We will borrow the money from China or other countries. In order for them to loan us the money, we will have to make it worth their while. We will have to pay higher interest. Higher interest will mean that the government has less money to pay for the programs that they have legislated into law. In other words if it takes a trillion dollars to run the country, we’ll now have to add the interest to that.  Where will the government get the extra money? They have two ways: 1. Pass the expense to the tax payer by increasing his contribution. 2. Print more money to cover the bill. This means that your money is worth less than it was before. I already have trouble making ends meet on my fixed income.

Here is what the interest payment looks like on a trillion dollars:

Interest rate-percent   interest payment
2   20,000,000,000.0
3   30,000,000,000.0
4   40,000,000,000.0
5   50,000,000,000.0
6   60,000,000,000.0
7   70,000,000,000.0
8   80,000,000,000.0
9   90,000,000,000.0
10   100,000,000,000.0

In case you have a problem reading all those zeros, they are billions.

Mark my words, this country is headed for another civil war with the rampant spending under this president. Isn’t civil war another issue that Lincoln had to deal with?
