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

Apologizing For America, Part 1? Part 2? Part 99?

Mr. Obama said it himself to anyone who actually listened, during the campaign and after he won, that he wanted to “fundamentally transform America”. People like me and many others tried to warn everyone lost in the “Obama trance” exactly what he meant and it scares the hell out of us. Now many of those worst fears are coming true between his Unconstitutional and massive expansion of bureaucracy policies at home and his one world, collectivist vision of the rest of the world.

Before I write about the latest UN speech the President gave, did you know it was revealed today that since he took office that there have been 25,000 new Federal employees added to the government that you and I of course pay for?? It is despicable that in a time that the private sector is downsizing and unemployment is at double digits that the Federal government continues to expand. But this shouldn’t surprise anyone as liberals love expanding Federal government to "nanny-state" proportions. And by the way, it is almost impossible to get rid of these people once they are in. Not to mention that they all get iron clad benefits and, yes, gold plated health insurance that again we pay for. Heck, it sounds like a national version of the SEIU! Remember, the government never does with less and does not compete; they simply tear up the rules book and dictate new policy, after all it is not their money and futures they are selling out!

Yesterday, He again appeared before the corrupt and anti-American United Nations and denounces American exceptionalism while receiving glowing compliments from evil, tin horn despots such as Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi who rambled on for 90 minutes and called Obama his “son”, the illegitimate Iranian president and holocaust denier, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the new western hemisphere Socialist/Marxist Hugo Chavez who said the “Smell of Sulfur has been replaced with the smell of hope”—the sulfur reference he made last time he spoke at the UN while George Bush was still in office—how proud we should all be of these endorsements!! All of this while Israel is staring down the very real possibility of a future nuclear attack by Iran or other rogue nation while Obama says to the UN "America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.”

He accused America as acting “unilaterally” and of course this has damaged our image around the world. It is the responsibility and duty of our government to do whatever is in the best interest of this country and be damned what other countries think of us—this is NOT a one-world country! This is the greatest land God ever gave and although we are not perfect, no President should ever apologize for the greatness of our history and deeds. They are all just jealous and stunned that a country that has been around for only 230 or so years has kicked all their collective asses in our advances and standard of living. Liberals always “hedge” their comments about America’s greatness by blaming us for much of the problems in the world.

He said that he ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed when he took office. This is a joke and a national security nightmare. Unless he is willing to bring these terrorists to a neighborhood near you and jeopardize our security, this cannot happen. Just look at what is going on the last few days where several terror plots are being uncovered all over the country—very scary. It only takes one psycho extremist to slip through the law and cause mass casualties in our midst—I pray this does not happen again.

He once again uses the phony junk science of global warming to advocate and promote higher taxes, globalism, unproven “alternative” energy sources, and stripping America of its own energy development and freedom by restricting capacity and sources. Obama says that any country is entitled to develop nuclear energy, and I totally agree, yet his own policy and debt to the extreme environmental lobby precludes our own country for expanding such an energy source beyond what we already have.

He bragged about using American tax payer money—without our permission—to “bailout” the world economy to the tune of $2,000,000,000,000 (that’s trillion!) --so far—while enslaving future generations of Americans into debt to the Chinese and others for his generosity! He also is laying the groundwork for a one world economy and stripping the US dollar as the benchmark currency forcing Americans into some scheme that one day could allow direct taxation of us by the UN or some other one-world committee. We continue to spend countless dollars on every left wing social program worldwide while ignoring the pending bankruptcy we will surely face at home if this spending continues. Remember, liberals are only generous with other people’s money…

He pledged again to help disarm our country saying he can envision a world without nuclear weapons. In a perfect utopia world, this would be an honorable goal but in a world filled with evil dictators and despots, this is a fool hardy path that will only serve to reduce our security and defensive posture while at the same time such a policy will not stop regimes like Iran and North Korea from gaining their own arsenal which I have no doubt they would use offensively if they could. They are laughing at our increasing weakness in taking the necessary steps to shut down their programs. And although generally I do not believe in involving the United States in "pre-emptive" conflicts (look at Afghanistan right now), legitimizing and engaging in useless diplomacy with these rogue regimes will yield nothing except allowing them the time to stall us and complete their work.

I also agree that we should not be “forcing” democracy onto other nations, however I do not believe that has ever been our intention or goal. But the rulers of countries that “choose” to live in totalitarianism cannot then demand concessions and treasure of the United States be handed over to them while at the same time conspiring to do damage and harm to us.

As I wrote last week, we should exit the UN and throw them out of this country—period! They spend billions of our dollars every year and for what?? See my UN posting for from last week.

There is too much material in this speech to cover here. Read the text or watch the video yourself and decide. The United States needs to always assert itself as a world power and remind other countries at the same time of our unequivocal greatness and generosity. As Teddy Roosevelt once said: “Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick…”
