Picture
OK look.  Little is more upsetting than an atrocity of integrity for president.  And that is what Obama is and why he has lost so much support, so fast.  He doesn’t even attempt to be sly.  He just blatantly lies to the people and moves on with his own agenda against the people. 

Administration of deceit

We have seen this repeatedly starting with a stimulus that failed to deliver on promises he knew it couldn’t keep; it was what was needed at the time to further weaken an already threatened economy which served as the catalyst for a wave of recession extending government sponsored programs.  We listened to him directly criticize conditions in the AZ immigration enforcement law and turn to have the exact same provisions installed into a failed DREAM Act.  That of course got under my skin.

For months I listened to people complaining about HOW DARE WE REQUIRE IMMIGRANTS TO CARRY IDENTIFICATION ON THEM AT ALL TIMES.  This little fire was started by the Obama administration and fueled by people who failed to understand that such a requirement is a FEDERAL LAW.  When this found its way into the DREAM Act… silence.  This silence clearly stated the people would object carrying identification if it could be used to determine their unlawful status, but were perfectly fine with it if it meant the law breaking were suddenly “legal.” Such hypocrisy is maddening because it just goes to show how shallow and weak minded supporters against a cause and against the law can be.  They become supports of no cause, led by a supposed supporter of Human and Civil Rights; that only wished to tax illegal immigrants while selling a lie that he gave a crap about them and their well being.

And then there is the health care reform LIE.  It was Obama who bested Clinton in saying he would NEVER MANDATE health insurance in the US because he WOULD NEVER BURDEN the American people with the mandated expense.  This of course was determined to be unconstitutional as states lined up to protect themselves from the financial burden of the program.  One of the least discussed aspects of Obamacare is just that; the burden it places on the individual states.  The program expands a grossly failing Medicaid program that is suffering funding cuts while at the same time the Obama administration wishes to expand the demographics of those eligible for the program.  Though in ideology this is enticing to many, the math does just not add up.  You cannot cut funding to a program you are expanding and expect positive results.  The Obama administration was called out on this by the states who had determined the obvious.  What the Obama administration did was implement a program, cut funding and stuck the individual states with the shortfall (with the exception of Nevada whose elected official (Bart Stupak) who later decide to not run for re-election) sold his vote against the program to Obama’s offer (bribe) to cover health care reform costs for the state).  When the states called the federal government to the table to discuss these issues; the Obama administration literally walk away leaving the already economically crushed states to fend for their selves.  When you look at the happenings of health care reform, repeal should be based on principle, constitutionalism and economics.

Virtual and value of repeal

The Republican House of the 112th Congress has decided to go forward with, "Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act."  OK, stop; just stop!

The Republican takeover of the House was too easy because it is this is the type of crap Obama led the 111th to do!  All rhetoric and no principle!  There is just reason to repeal the health care reform law and the just cause in doing so is the only reasonable approach to repeal. 

In all honesty, job killing could be a possible effect of Obamacare, but let’s face it; job killing was included in the title solely to elicit emotive response against the program long before it is proven to an actual detrimental aspect of the program (rhetoric).  This Obama like strategy is the exact opposite of why the 112th has been put in place by a population voting against Obama, his rhetoric and his lies.

Repeal it because the individual states were stuck with funding a federal program which they simply cannot afford to do.  Repeal it because the general population supports the repeal of the program.  Repeal it because the general population was against it while their elected officials supported it in defiance of their electorates.  Here’s a novel idea for the 112th Congress; REPEAL IT BECAUSE IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL! 

Understand this; the 112th Congress is in place for the right reasons.  This of course does not mean they will follow the will of the people.  It is the people whom they work for, that is the way America was founded to be.  In their desire to repeal health care reform, they MUST go about it in the correct manner; nothing less should be tolerated by the people.  Here we already have them trying to do the right thing, but going about it the wrong way.

This shows you the impact Obama has had on American politics.  It is in direct spite of this that the 112th Congress was elected.  In doing the right thing, we must insist that they do it the right way.  They must explain to the people that the states have been collectively stuck with the tab on the federal takeover.  Explain that the mandate and the lie it represents is unconstitutional and goes against the very fabric of America in that it unravels Americanism.  This is not rocket science, but it is a matter of principle and integrity. 

American principles first

The day of expecting more from congress has passed.  It has yielded to a day of demanding more from and of congress.  Today, less than a third of Americans feel America is on the right path.  As alarming as this is, if the nation remains on a course of special interests that go against the will of the people it will become the norm and America will be lost to an era of political rhetoric and agendas against the people.

The election of the 112th Congress will only be of positive consequence if the remaining two thirds of Americans voice the virtues and values on which this great nation was based.  America is only lost when the people of her fail in seeking her out from the toils of internal self destruction.

I had met Richard once before. He and Kimberly had come into the store wanting to discuss “an issue with Congress woman Giffords.” Both were very cleanly dressed, very nice and seemingly approachable. Until the Giffords comment that was. I had nothing nice to discuss with them about the AZ District 8 Representative.

The discussion started tentatively enough. They were on the verge of getting thrown out of the store before Richard mentioned 2D Amendment Rights.

“Have a seat.” And a relationship was born.

It had been a few months since my last discussion with Kimberly and Richard. Perhaps it was more given Kimberly’s introduction of Richard in last week’s visit. “This is Richard, a Delegate and Constitutional Scholar.” Fortunately, I had known neither about Richard during their previous visit making her miss timed introduction was nothing less than perfect. A Constitutional Scholar sitting before me, sitting on my desk a working copy of the US Constitution that I have been aptly studying trying to make sense of what we have managed to turn America into; what more could a concerned citizen ask for.

I had to ask the obvious in terms of the constitutional bearing of health care reform (Complete text of the Bill is here). How do we deal with a president that passed a law, knowing full well that is was unconstitutional and in retort very cavalierly stated that once legislation is passed and signed, it becomes “Supreme Law.” Which is to insinuate that he knew the protest would be made, but could not be formally pursued until such a time that it was signed – which technically made it too late. Richard’s response was simple. “The US Constitution IS Supreme law.” He went on to rapidly list several articles and amendments that were currently in violation with the signing of the bill. (Far more than my constitutionally novice eye caught). I wanted the discussion to focus on the probable outcome of the law suits filed by the states Attorneys General, but Richard was more focused on dealing with the issue directly; what you and I can do. Moreover, the best and most effective way to ensure we do not take the nation down the wrong path with the precedent set with the reform bill. To put it simply, vote Red and remove as many Democrats from office as possible and insist the program never gets funded – essentially killing it in place.

America has forgotten something. Forgotten are the 28 principles that the Framers based the US Constitution on. Principles like: The Proper Role of Government is to Protect Equal Rights, Not Provide Equal Things. (The 7th Principle). This is woven into the Constitution in a manner that limits government’s involvement in our pursuit of prosperity. Government is limited in this fashion because doing so protects freedom and liberty. Doing so ensures that those who chose to strive have something to strive for. Doing so makes the right to fail a privilege of freedom. These principles that are being violated are solely at the hands of Americans that do not understand Americanism, underestimate liberty and take freedom for granted. Americans that do not understand that limiting government is freeing the people. Politicians who do not want freed people by limited government involvement. Politicians who seek tyrannical control under the guise of directly violating this 7th Principle the Framers insisted upon so that we could prevail as people free of government.

“Governments, in general, have been the result of force, of fraud, and accident. After a period of six thousand years since the creation, the United States exhibit to the world the first instance as far as we can learn, of a nation, unattacked by external force, unconvulsed by domestic insurrections, assembling voluntarily, deliberating fully, and deciding calmly concerning that system of government under which they would wish they and their prosperity should have.” - James Wilson

Done right and going wrong because prosperity is not understood. Prosperity is only measured in terms of what a person does not have and has not accomplished and compared to the reality that someone else has more and has accomplished more. It is a form of greed that has been exploited to grow government’s control over the people as government insists that attaining in life is wrong because not all have. Prosperity becomes punished and turned into a reward for those who have sought not at the hands of those who have sought. A Free People Will Not Survive, Unless They Stay Strong. The 24th Principle was woven by the Framers with the knowledge that enabling success, as difficult as it may be from time to time, is essential for national sovereignty. As we lower the bar for the nation, we weaken the nation. They knew this, we have forgotten it. When a person is rewarded for dysfunction, applauded for not attempting and hailed for not trying; we undermine the fabric of Americanism. In doing so, we only ensure that America will no longer be a nation designed not of force, fraud or accident; but turned into just another nation that was. All because we are too insecure to accept the fact that achieving prosperity is the responsibility of the individual; not the government.
 
Amy just got me all pissed off this morning! Not her fault, it was because her blog was true in its truest form. Health care reform and abortion. The blog was written in reference to another about deciphering the abortion language in the health care bill. We’ll it is not all that hard to decipher so I never checked the blog out, or at least that was my excuse. Truth be told, I just hate the debate because I have a fairly peculiar stance on the whole abortion issue. It’s not my business. Do I support abortions? No, I do not, but at the same time I do not judge those who do. The matter is far too delicate of an issue within the family unit to turn political, so I tend to just stay clear and avoid blogs, discussion and debates surrounding the issue. If you ask me directly, you will get an answer. But that is about it.

Why break the silence now? It is a simple answer. Because the administration now seeks for me to directly pay for procedures I do not support. That’s why. In all of these years of me not being vocal and slamming on pro-choicers has not meant that I supported them, it has meant that I respect their freedoms to choose. No intervention of words on my part would change a thing. It is not like they knocked on my door asking for a donation or anything. Nor is it like they have knocked on my door demanding that I support them. Until now that is. Government is trying to kick my door in, not knock on it to in their attempt to force me to pay for abortions that I do not believe in!

So, since you all have made it my business, let us discuss it a bit shall we?

I have a daughter and I would not support her choice to have an abortion. And yes, LIKE OBAMA, I would not want her future jeopardized by having a child too early. I can completely relate to that. However, my child is my responsibility and her getting pregnant early means I have to be burdened at least in part. UNLIKE OBAMA, I would have to step up on behalf of my daughter (who is my RESPONSIBILTY) and aid in ways that allow her to stay on track to a promising future – or as on track as she can be given the manner in which we have derailed her future with the recent forms of legislation she will be paying for. Truth be told, this is where the majority of abortions come from. They come from parents wishing to absolve themselves of the responsibility of their own children. The abortion is the easy way out for THEM, so they support the decision of the children; if not force them into it. (Don’t think for one second that because I have been silent on the issue does not mean I do not know what is going on.)

The fact of the matter is that is unfortunate that the ability to reproduce is solely biological. A 16 year old kid has no business getting her head bounced off the head board by some snotty nosed, acne riddled punk who masturbates to the wind blowing the trees outside of his window. We know this, yet we allow it and turn our backs to it because “everyone else is doing it.” As society erodes we make an active choice to erode with it; babies and abortions are the consequence.

In setting the record straight on this issue of abortion, I could give a rat’s ass who has one or why UNLESS it is my girlfriend, wife (should I re-marry) or children (to include hers). But since we are lead by a person that has clearly identified himself as an irresponsible parent that would NOT step up on behalf of a daughter (which he has the means to do) that HE is RESPONSIBLE for, it was simply a matter of time before I was forced to call it like it is. What you and your family do is on you, not me and that is precisely why I stay out of it. But you have dragged me into this by FORCING me to pay for YOUR abortions whether I support them or not, I take extreme exception to this! Typically I would not care if you have acted so irresponsibly that you have ended up pregnant or gotten so one pregnant and did not want to be burdened with the responsibilities of your actions. Nor would I care that as an adult you have not gotten your own life together enough to aid your child when they truly needed you most; until that is you have forced me into a position to voice my displeasure of personal habits that grown so large they garner their own legislation ON MY DIME! I cannot speak my displeasure without judging and I do not like to judge people. Here we have legislation literally killing the only chance at survival our nation has; its children. This because we value luxuries IN life over the luxury OF life. Life itself is a virtual impossibility. Think about that for what it is for a moment. Human life is an impossibility. The odds in us evolving to populate this ONE planet to be you and I communicating right here, right now are so profoundly unlikely that they are a true virtual impossibility – that being just, living, eating and breathing – here. Couple that with the number of ovums passed with normal cyclic and almost metamorphic inter-human stages confined to a cycle of events only found in the female adult stage and the multitude of spermatozoa passed; our existence is IMPOSSIBLE not improbable. That all cast aside for convenience of not being burdened with a perceived inconvenience. That all being cast aside in order to NOT be held accountable for one’s action in life; to be absolved of the only responsibility we have as human beings. In abortion, there is no sense of humanity, only sense of the selfish self in the worst phases of the adult ego state. A mother is often heard saying she will give her life for her child, somehow, I really doubt this as true as people make it out to be. It is too often in our current age that the mother kills the baby for her convenience; I find it hard to believe such acts and mindsets instantly shift 180 degrees to the polar opposite so fast in many of these people. That level of selfishness plagues for a lifetime, not a couple of months.

I watched my aunt die so my cousin could have a CHANCE at life. That’s a mother, not these people spreading their legs for every clown they have a fancy for who have so little identity of self that they can hardly begin to identify with a child developing within them. That is not a mother, a woman and is marginally by definition a human being. It is in the wild where see the young eaten by their own, not in a civilized society.

Today we abort at every opportunity to disavow ourselves of our own accountability and responsibility as adults; the killing of babies is but a mere symptom of a far greater problem. I call it the Adult Abortive Response Syndrome. You can practice this to your heart is content, but I will be damned if I am going to pay for it for you!
