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

Here is the latest way that Dems and RINO Republicans are trying to hide their true intentions with healthcare “reform” and thoughts on a few Obama czars ,etc...

Puke “moderates” like Olympia Snowe (R-ME) are once again getting together the Gang of Six- a supposed bipartisan group of senators- who are desperately trying to get a compromise bill out of the senate. What they are pushing is “trigger” wording in the bill that will allow the government to take over and institute a “public” plan if insurance companies do not meet certain “standards” place on them by Congress.

How long will it take before one of these so-called “standards” are said to be violated? Watch out, don’t blink or you might miss it!
Who is going to determine these standards and how will they be enforced and who will decide if they are being violated? (I’ll take lawyers and bureaucrats for $1000, Alex)

This is essentially the same language that the current House bill has as well that I have talked about before. In that bill, if private plans are to be “allowed” to still operate, they must meet requirements and qualifications set forth in that bill. Of course a similar problem exists with them doing that: the qualifications and mandates will be so high that they will never be able to compete with the government plan and will henceforth be forced out of business and as I mentioned in previous blogs, simply bled dry by the public plan.

No one is buying this or being fooled by it. Their level or arrogance and disdain for public opinion on this matter are stunning! Stay tuned for the spin!!

And if so many rich liberals, both in the Congress and out, want universal healthcare you think that they could pool their billions together and launch a new health insurance plan that only covers the narrow part of our population that truly cannot get or afford health insurance. I think Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, and Nancy Pelosi alone could fund it for 10 years! But as I have said, this issue has never been about health insurance reform, but rather power, control, and taxes. If they can force you to live under such a policy, they can dictate virtually your entire life and be damned the 90% of Americans that are happy with their current coverage.

And while we are on the subject of quacking, how about Obama’s “green jobs” Czar Van Jones, who Co-founded a socialist collective, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, in 1994, which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia (hmm, who else do we know that was a community organizer??) A man who once said that white people are purposely poisoning the environment to kill off minorities. A man who signed a “9/11 Truth” petition—you know, one of these insane groups that claims 9/11 was an inside job—and then said in a statement recently that he hadn’t really read the petition even though the title said “9/11 TRUTH”. (kind of like Congress not reading legislation before voting for it). This guy also called Republicans “a-holes” when asked by a woman at a meeting in Berkley, CA (no liberals there, huh!) why Democrats couldn’t ram things through without Republicans since they have the whole Congress now yet Republicans could when they were in charge. And a guy that believes that creating “green jobs” is just the beginning in “transforming our society”

We are of course told by him and the White House that we can’t hold him accountable for things he has said in the past even though these were all very recent actions and while at the same time Democrats in Virginia are trying to demonize the Republican gubernatorial candidate on something he wrote in a thesis more than 20 years ago—typical left double standard.

Just add that to the long list of incompetent people Obama surrounds himself with:

Tim Geithner, the tax cheat Secretary of Treasury.

Carol Browner (Energy and Environment Czar) who once worked on the Socialist International's Commission for a Sustainable World Society, asking the global community must work collectively to address environmental policies.

Cass Sunstein (Regulatory Czar) who once said that animals should have the right to sure humans in court and also once suggested that all hunting be banned.

John Holdren (Science Czar) who advocated in a 1977 book that compulsory abortions could be enforced under the Constitution as a way of protecting the environment!

Charlie Rangel (New York Congressman) who is the Chairman of the powerful House Ways in Means Committee in Congress, which writes tax law, is himself now a known tax cheat for
underreporting hundreds of thousands of dollars in assets and evading the taxes due. Rangel also played the race card this week saying that people that are opposing Obama care are ones who just can’t get over the fact that a “black man was elected President”. I am sure Nancy Pelosi’s House “ethics investigation” into this will be very hard hitting and bad for Charlie!

And dozens more…!!
