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

King Barry’s Non-State of the Union

I did not hear a State of the Union speech that our Founding Father's such as Thomas Jefferson would have given in which they state how our country is growing and proceeding according to the strict Constitutional limits and Bill of Rights. (I would definitely recommend that you read the speech in the above link and contrast and compare King Barry’s Marxist speech vs. what a true Patriot sounds like!!)

What I heard was a mindless, wandering, and at times angry speech by someone who has never stopped campaigning, who blames the problems of today on previous administrations, advocates for ever increasing nanny state control and massive new bureaucracies and spending, a checklist of government give aways designed to sure up a voting block and increase dependency, a promise to push the United States into a one-world global collective society by means such as global warming policy, arms control, and economic bailouts of other countries that will put the final nail in our own economy and sovereignty.

Barry kept his hard left agenda firmly in place and his anger and threatening streak and tone boiled to the surface many times. The most blatant was when he scolded the Supreme Court’s decision last week to strike down main parts of McCain/Feingold while the members of the Court sat right in front of him. Not only is that a lie as John Tabin points out but it was highly inappropriate and disrespectful and sets a bullying tone and shows him to be the dictator wanna-be that he is.

This President is and always will be a hard left radical with a plan to reshape America into his Socialist vision by any means necessary whether that includes smooth talking “Hope and Change” speeches that are hollow and meaningless or back -room Chicago style arm twisting and outright lying and bullying.

This President despises the limits places on our Government by the enumerated powers of the Constitution and make no mistake that he and all liberals on both sides of the aisle will not obey these limits and will only quote the Constitution when it suits their twisted agenda and be damned the rest of America.

How dare he compare the problems of today—created by the evil of big out of control government liberalism and hyper spending-- to the challenges and problems that faced our country’s founding over 200 years ago. This is an enormous insult and outright degrading of the great men who sacrificed untold treasure and blood to give him the right to stand at that podium and endorse and support policies that will destroy what they envisioned.

Most of what he said was platitudes and dull “feel good” applause lines designed to appeal to the so-called Independents and moderates in our country that will only listen to the platitudes and bumper sticker phrases that liberals will quote after tonight. But when he was specific on policy, I shuttered and grew angry at his basic lack of knowledge of what makes economies truly grow and prosper and how he insists on inserting ever greater roles of government and therefore taxation and regulation into our lives all while he continually stomps on the limits of the power vested in the government by the Constitution. Towards the end of the speech he threw out vague, general ideas of even greater government control and sent up warning flags to true Conservatives about even more violations of the Constitution yet to come from King Barry.

Republicans and Conservatives in office need to be VERY SURE that they do not get sucked into Obama’s request to “work together” to create the Marxist change that Obama seeks. They need to remain hard and fast “obstructionists” on ALL policies that he is proposing NOT for the sake of obstructing but because that is their Constitutional obligation and duty to do so! I believe most Americans will support such moves as recent elections and polls are suggesting.

This is a President and majority party in total denial and defiance of the will of the citizens of this country. It is time we wake them up!
