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

I Never Knew I was Racist!

That's because I am not, and neither are millions of my fellow liberty loving Americans!

Big government supporters are now truly losing it! Why? Many have gone 100% in the tank with the race card. The evidence is everywhere! If you oppose any of Obama’s huge government programs, such as nationalization of healthcare, then they will call you a racist.

They cannot argue on the facts or merits of the arguments. They are absolutely stunned that the public is not buying or go along with these Socialist plans like the drones they thought we would be. Even many former Obama supporters and voters are beginning to back away from him and polls are showing people just don’t trust what he is saying.

In fact the “bounce” he received in the polls after his healthcare campaign speech last week, has been completely erased already.

Of course Obama himself does not have to say a word about this—yet. He will allow his sycophants and the mainstream media to do his dirty work for him as long as possible. I believe eventually he will have to come out and at least try to convince us that he opposes such language. But he may not be believable on that either because again his past writings, associations, and actions speak otherwise.

The latest 2 prominent examples are from the worst (currently) president in modern history, Jimmy Carter and Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson (D-GA):
Jimmy Carter's Comments from this weekend...
Congressman Hank Johnson's (D-GA) comments tying Joe Wilson's comments and criticism of Obama to the KKK
There are tons more of these examples that are out there--these are only a couple of the latest!

If you go to a tea party or a townhall meeting you are racist and part of a "mob". If you oppose the takeover of auto companies you are racist. If you oppose the stimulus bill you are a racist. And coming up, I am sure if you oppose the Cap and Trade (or Tax) bill that the White House's own inside report shows that the average American household's federal taxes will rise by $1761/year under this bill, then you are a racist--more on that coming in future posts. And of course, if you oppose ACORN, you are a racist. I will also talk more about ACORN in the coming days as well.

This is their mantra and all they have now. They are desperate to deflect the criticisms back to everyone else and once again try to make themselves look like the victim.

I think I can speak for ALL people who oppose what is happening in this country now. We oppose the programs and the direction we are going in. We oppose and protest the policies and philosophies, not the person! It does not matter what race the person is that proposing these things! The aforementioned Jimmy Carter is a prime example. As I said, I believe he is the worst President in modern history(although Obama is starting to catch up) and the last time I checked, he is white.

We elected a black President and without white support, that would never have happened so give me a break on the “white racists that just can’t accept a black President”. These are vial and insulting implications and statements! There are unfortunately racists in all nationalities in the country, but they are a tiny fraction that should be marginalized no matter what color they are.

I think there are 2 possible reasons for these reactions. First, they are just stunned that the public is not being swayed by the “lure” of liberalism and not intimidated by Chicago style politics. Second, they are using it as a baseline and excuse for future crackdown on the population with the rationale being that the President’s safety is in jeopardy or for “national security” issues. The second may sound like conspiracy, but simply look at the policies and comments of Attorney General Eric Holder on guns and race, Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano’s “right wing extremist” study she approved earlier this year, and the internet security act that is being proposed in the Senate that could give Obama the power to shutdown PRIVATE computer networks. Here was my post on this legislation

Barack Obama ran as a post-racial candidate. If he truly means it, he will BOLDLY make statements and actions on the things going on now. But I won’t hold my breath…
