Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

The August Recess-Time to Bury Obama Care!

So it is the hot, dog days of summer and our distinguished members of Congress are going out on their month long recess. And because of the intense pressure brought on by the rational citizens of this country, they have decided to hold off on final debating and voting on the government takeover of health care, otherwise known as ObamaCare.

My fellow Americans now is the time to defeat the healthcare bill once and for all. How do you that you ask? Get educated and make your voices heard loud and clear. The versions of the bills are being “marked up” in Congress before their recess and may even have committee votes (but not the whole Congress) this week. Therefore the bills will be made public.

So, unlike Congressman John Conyers, a good start would be to READ THE BILL and you don’t need to have 2 lawyers to do it—as he said he needed! Although, as an aside, aren’t Conyers and virtually all other congress people lawyers? Don’t let them spin it—figure it out yourself! Don’t have time to read a 1000 page bill? Then do your due diligence by researching and reading online—especially this blog. I will post regular updates as the details of the bills become available and summarize them here. Alternately, check out sites such –an awesome site for all things conservative and Constitutional.

And as important, find out where your representatives will be holding their town hall meetings and public forums and SHOW UP to question them! Remember, they work for us and what politicians fear more than anything is losing their power and position.

Public sentiment is clearly against this debacle. They will try to ram this down all our collective throats anyways, but they will also know that the consequences will be grave for them if they do so. The talking points are out and the President (the demagogue in chief) is again lying and spinning about what his and the liberals in congress’ true intentions are for this legislation. Quite simply, it is the ultimate power to control and tax your life.

Think about it, if you control healthcare imagine the power to control and exert influence in every aspect of your life. We will complete the ultimate cross over to European socialism and ruin the best healthcare and health technology in the world where rationing and bureaucratic control will be the norm. The government already controls about 50% of the healthcare spending now through Medicare. That program is bankrupt now, there is no “Medicare Trust Fund”. The day of reckoning is coming on that very soon. So why would you possibly want to hand over nearly 1/5th of our entire economy to these thieves?

Not to mention obviously the un-Constitutioanl aspects of this. Many states will resist this and are already discussing their options under the 10th Amendment of the Consitution—and probably other articles and amendments as well as they realize the mandates that will be forced on them through expansion of Medicaid and other programs are unsustainable and will break the states for good.

It will not be pretty if it passes, but know that we are all in this together, and together we will end this reign of terror that Dr. Obama is setting forth on us as he attempts to continue full steam ahead on his class warfare, redistributive policies he so deeply believes in.


  1. There you are. I lost your site for a moment. I commented on your previous blog. I did not know you were such a conservative with these kinds of ideas.

  2. Yes I ceratinaly am. This is exactly who I am and believe it very passionately.
