HOW DO WE SAVE THE REPUBLIC?


Image

 

            I will readily acknowledge there are a number of possible ways to achieve the goal, some I do not endorse, at this time.  I want to take the most peaceful and legal means possible to save and restore the Constitutional Republic called the United States of America.  I want to see it function within the bounds, limits, and guidelines of the American Constitution not the United Nations Charter.  I want America back and lay blame at the feet of both parties in a very large measure.

             I believe that the politicians have ‘stolen’ our Republic from us for their own political purposes and agendas.  I believe that their quest and thirst for power, in the name of helping the people has resulted in the complete shredding of the American Constitution to the point that it is no longer working as it was designed.  The courts have aided in this travesty.  The Executive and Legislative Branches have been major culprits in this assault on our American Constitution and thereby the Republic that our Founding Fathers established and handed down to us. 

             How do we SAVE the republic?  That is a most interesting question and one that requires a significant amount of thought and weighing options to come to a definitive answer.  Another question might be CAN WE SAVE the republic?  That depends on where we turn for our solution to the problem.

Image

             CONGRESS IS NOT THE ANSWER so where do we turn?  I believe that Mark Levin and others have hit on what may well be the ‘only’ hope we have of saving the Republic.  He bases his argument on Article V of the American Constitution and proposes that we seek to get two-thirds of the State Legislatures to call for a Convention to Propose Amendments to the United States Constitution.  The proposed amendments then would have to be ratified by three fourths of the States to become valid.  Clearly we cannot depend on the U.S. Congress, President, or Supreme Court to restore the Constitution so the Individual States are possibly our only hope.  Can we get enough State Legislatures to sign on to this idea?  I do not know as we have failed in previous attempts but today hopefully there are enough people who see the ‘lawlessness’ of this President as a perpetual danger and one that can only lead to a Tyrannical State if not stopped that something might be done.  We can hope!

 Image

            PEOPLE NOT POLITICIANS will ultimately be the answer.  It is only as the people within the nation rise up in sufficient numbers either electing or sending fear into the hearts of elected officials to cause them to respond.  That is probably easier accomplished on a State level than a National one.  The State Legislators are frequently more attune to the wishes of the people and more likely to respond to pressure than National Legislators.  There is an infectious disregard for our wishes on the Washington scene so those in Congress seem to be inoculated, isolated, and insolated with regard to our voices and wishes.  That has to change and the only way it will change is by taking the drastic steps to amend the present Constitution and restore power to the States and thereby the people.

            WE DESIRE A REPUBLIC NOT A TYRANNICAL DESPOTIC REGIME and the only way that we can have that is take power from them.  I am not just identifying Democrats in that statement but Republicans and Independents in Washington as well.  They have and are virtually all guilty of destroying our Constitutional Republic and should be held accountable and stripped of their power ASAP.

             IT WILL BE GOD NOT MAN that ultimately determines if we will have a Republic and keep it or if we lose the nation.  Therefore it is my conviction that we should ‘work’ as if everything depended on us and ‘pray’ as if everything (and it does) depends on God.  I have for some time been committed to intercession for the nation.  In doing that I pray for the leaders that God will guide their decisions, touch their hearts, and bring them to the light of right and truth!  I do not pray for the success of agendas that are clearly outside the scope of Scripture or not in the best interest of the American Republic and people.  I cannot do that!  I must speak up, speak out, stand up, and stand firm in hopes of seeing the Republic restored to its Constitutional mode of operation.

 Image

            I suggest that you research this avenue and if you believe it is a viable way to go, contact your elected State Representative, Senator, and all other State officials as might be needed in this attempt to save the Republic.  I, like you, want to see our Republic saved and our Constitution honored and followed.  We may not agree on how to accomplish that but hopefully agree on that objective.

             May God bless you and may God bless America!

I LOVE THE ILLOGICAL LOGIC OF POLITICIANS….


Image

            Actually I do not but I need a good laugh and cry daily so as I listen to what they say, read what they write, and watch what they go I get my dose of ILLOGICAL LOGIC and move on.  It would be hilarious if it was not so serious and when I remotely consider the possibility that they truly believe what they are promoting IT IS FRIGHTENING!

             The incredible spin from the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) report that at least 2.5 MILLION jobs will be destroyed by Obama-care and that is somehow liberating and good is no longer amusing it is amazing!  When did not having a job become better than having a job?  When did not taking care of your family and depending on someone else become the norm?  When did being unable to find a job become fashionable and desirable?  When?  When this president and the politicians decided that they wanted to grow the Federal Government to a new ALL POWERFUL place, completely dominate our lives, redistribute what we have earned and saved, and punish hard work, ingenuity, integrity, and responsibility.  If this is an acceptable position in America and the World we are farther up the proverbial creek than I thought.  If this is acceptable politically, socially, economically, morally, and spiritually WE ARE IN DEEP STUFF!

 Image

            Then I hear the infamous Chuck Schumer Senator from New York promote the idea that as a compromise the Republicans should agree to pass the AMNESTY bill and it would not be enforced until Mr. Obama is out of office!  WHAT?  That sounds a lot like Queen Nancy’s proposition, “We have to pass it to find out what is in it” debacle known as Obama-care!  We know where that has gotten us, so why in the name of sanity would we want to take that path again?  The timidity of the Republicans is more than disturbing it is appalling!  When they have the opportunity to show the ‘contrast’ between conservatives and liberals in a way that is unmistakably positive they offer timidity, insecurity, uncertainty, and indecision!  C’mon Man!  The iron is hot STRIKE!

 Image

            What in Obama’s first five years suggests he would allow a golden opportunity such as a piece of legislation sit idle without using Executive fiat and Administrative Action to enact the legislation?  He would simply refer to it as what is effectively ‘the law’ therefore enacting it now would be the right thing to do.  The Democrats would line up to sign on and the Republicans would cringe in the corner cowering in fear.  That is how they have reacted thus far so why would I think now would be different?  I DO NOT!

             The Attorney General from the Department of Injustice as it should be called is using his office to legislate things to the States that are beyond his constitutional authority to do and directly violate the Constitution but no one seems to be willing to take him to task.  Where have all the constitutional legislators gone or do they exist?  Oh, I acknowledge that there are a few brave souls still in Washington but it seems that they fail to have consistency and gradually evolve into part of the problem rather than being a breath of fresh air for the constitution and WE THE PEOPLE!  

 Image

            I pray for our elected officials!  I do not pray for their success in pressing their agenda but for their person.  I pray that somehow they will see the light and realize how vital the constitution is to America’s survival.  I pray that somehow they realize that the preservation of our liberties and freedoms is more important than their retirement, legacy, and political, social, or economic position.  I pray for America, her people, and her survival.  I pray that people will come to a place that political ideology takes a back seat to what is in the best interest of preserving a Constitutional Republic as the founders established. 

             We are on the brink of the complete collapse of our economy, our Republic, and our way of life.  I see this as much more serious than ‘just politics’ I see it as LIFE or DEATH!  Therefore, I will continue to plead for the constitution to be honored and for the election and selection of individuals who are not professional politicians but Citizen Representatives!

             America I love you and want to see you preserved!  May God bless you and may God bless America!

ARE THEY REALLY DOING THIS?????


     Image      

What is ‘this’ you ask?   Is the Republican Establishment strategy to alienate the Tea Party and Constitutional Conservatives in an effort to ‘win’ the mid-term elections but only by a narrow margin and without the Tea Party or what they view as ‘right-wingers’?   If that is their strategy they are dumber than dumb and place the entire nation in jeopardy of not just another two years of liberal socialist left-wing rule but possibly eight to ten more years of it?  We can barely survive two more years and I’m not sure we can do that but eight to ten more years of this political ideological pathway we are on – NO WAY!

             Why would you pursue ‘AMNESTY’ although you are calling it ‘Immigration Reform’ and claiming that it is not a pathway to citizenship when you and the rest of us know that is exactly what this is or will be.  Why would you be so afraid of restraining Mr. Obama from his insatiable appetite for spending because you have vowed ‘no more shutdowns?’  Why would you ignore those that helped you reclaim the House in 2010 and want to alienate them?  WHY?  In my view there is only one logical conclusion – – You are Big Government Bureaucrats like the leftist and the only real difference is you have an R instead of a D behind your name on the ballot.  You want to feather your nest, secure you lofty position politically and financially, and you are more interested in power than people!  It is not ‘Power to the People’ but keeping ‘Power from the People’ that you seem to be interested in.

Image

             I guess you, like Mr. Obama and the Democrats believe that we all have STUPID written across our foreheads and are!  It seems that you have lost sight of what the public really wants!  One of the things that a vast majority of the voting public wants is LIMITED GOVERNMENT or LESS GOVERNMENT.  Most Americans want the government less involved in our daily lives.  Most Americans want less spending and debt nationally.  Most Americans want our borders secured and America and Americans protected.  Most Americans want government out of their health insurance and health care decisions.  Most Americans want the Republic that our Founders established and we had for a very long time.  Of course, the recent elections and inattention to politics by millions suggests that you and the left are right.  We may not be STUPID but we have acted STUPIDLY.

 Image

            It would be criminal for parents to allow an irresponsible teenager access to the key of the liquor cabinet, keys to the car, and access to the bank account.  Yet that seems to be the approach we have taken in politics.  We have allowed irresponsible men and women who have demonstrated either a complete ignorance of the Constitution or an abhorrence of it to make policy, pass laws, and enact governmental edicts that are contrary to the Constitution and the Will of the People of this Republic.  Some of, if not much, of the blame for the condition we are now facing must be shouldered by those of us who neglected to stay informed and involved in the political happenings of our nation over the past few decades.  It may well be too late to reclaim this nation but WE MUST attempt to do so. 

 

            I, like many of you, have become completely disgusted with politicians on both sides of the aisle and want people in Washington that will be Citizen Representatives who will honor and respect the Constitution of these United States of America.  I wish I could offer a formula that was simple and easily executed to achieve this but it is more complicated that just saying “I will vote third party.”  We may be left with no choice if the Republican Establishment continues its self-destructive course which is abetting the statist leftist liberal socialist in the destruction of this nation or as Obama declared the ‘fundamental transformation’ of it.

 Image

            My plea is be INFORMED, INVOLVED, and NEVER give up the effort to restore the Republic!   America now and future depends on our efforts!  I am not fighting just for me I am fighting for my children, grandchildren, and their children.  I am fighting for posterity, for God and Right not just the political right!

            May God be with you guarding and guiding you and may God bless America again!

AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT aka Obama-Care VERSIMILITUDE….


Image

            What do I mean?  Simply they spin what they are spinning and have been spinning about how ‘affordable’ it will make health insurance and health care as well as the fallaciousness of how many that are currently uninsured will now be insured gives the image that it is true but it is a blatant fabrication not supported by facts.

            Obamacare is supposedly going to extend coverage to 25+ million people who are ‘uninsured’ over the next DECADE.  Understand that this is not expected or intended to be an immediate eradication of the ‘uninsured’ problem as Obama wants you to believe.  However the Congressional Budget Office has issued a finding that anticipates at least 31+ million will remain ‘uninsured’ under Obamacare.  Please tell me how this law fixes the problem?  It only exasperates it lowers the standard of care, increases the costs across the board, costs jobs, hours, wages, and hurts the American economy and the American worker.  So how is it a good thing?  It is something that Barack Obama wants to hang his political legacy on and hopes that historians or revisionist will look back on it and give him a glowing grade somewhat like his receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for what they anticipated he might do and has not done. 

 Image

            The real truth is the ILLEGAL ALIENS, or as they are now called ‘undocumented workers’ , for we dare not call a spade a spade we have to be politically correct and show how sensitive we are, will be the lion’s share of the ‘uninsured.’  This is a group of people that we are now subsidizing through ‘welfare’, ‘free education’, and ‘free medical care’ now.  WHY do we need to punish all American citizens with a disastrous train wreck law to do what we are already doing and will continue doing SUPPORTING ILLEGALS?

 Image

            How about those who ‘fall through the cracks’ of the Obamacare system?  Those who earn below 100% of the poverty level, or around $11,500.00 per year make too little to get subsidized insurance because Obamacare assumes that they will get Medicaid.  Yet, there are those who do not qualify for the subsidized insurance and do not qualify for Medicaid.  Those people are not helped and it could be argued that they are harmed by Obamacare and will be part of the growing millions who do not have insurance, cannot get insurance, and do not have Medicaid.  WHAT ABOUT THEM MR. OBAMA?  Oh your law fixes everything for everyone, sorry I forgot.

             Additionally, I am still incensed over the ‘exemptions’ that you have issued to businesses, unions, Congress, and others.  If Obamacare is the best thing since ‘sliced bread’ then it should be good enough for ALL AMERICANS not just some of us who are outside your special favors groups.  You, your family, Congress, their families, their staffs, all unions, and businesses, should have to have it as well or NO ONE SHOULD have to have it!  You cannot have it both ways and even if your ‘low information’ crowd believes what you say, you are DISHONEST and millions of us know it and are resisting.  We will continue to put pressure on our elected representatives to resist as well. 

 Image

            This law adds or amends at least 40 new provisions to the federal tax code and the Kaiser Family Foundation conducted a poll and found that 77% say they KNOW NOTHING or LITTLE about what Obamacare is really all about or does.  You have shut down open air monuments, prevented WWII veterans and families from paying tribute to their comrades and family and yet you are spending $67 million or more in a campaign to EXPLAIN OBAMACARE to the public. 

             In your plan you claim that employees have the option to opt out of their employer’s plan if it does not cover at least 60% of their healthcare costs or costs more than 9.5% of their taxable income.  One wee little problem in this it is what some have called the ‘family glitch’ because the test of affordability is for INDIVIDUALS not FAMILIES.  Additionally, family members CANNOT GET subsidies in the exchanges if the worker’s plan is deemed AFFORDABLE.   What about that sir?

 Image

            In fact, the CBO projects that under Obamacare over the next decade, the number of uninsured will never fall below 30 million. Here are the year-by-year projections from the report:

2013 – 55,000,000
2014 – 44,000,000
2015 – 37,000,000
2016 – 31,000,000
2017 – 30,000,000
2018 – 30,000,000
2019 – 30,000,000
2020 – 30,000,000
2021 – 31,000,000
2022 – 31,000,000
2023 – 31,000,000

            Thus we find that Obamacare is not the cure all that ends all our health insurance and health care problems and makes virtually no dent in the problem only exasperates it and complicates it further.  The truth is that you are not interested in HEALTHCARE or HEALTH INSURANCE you are interested in CONTROL as the fine points and fine print of the ACA reveals when studied.

             Therefore it is incumbent upon us to continue to resist and insist that our elected representatives resist your diabolical and disastrous ideology and policies.  Americans want their America back!

             May God bless you and may God bless America!
