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

Are Republicans Finally Getting the Message from Conservatives??

King Barry is trying to sucker Republicans into showing up for an ambush media photo op at the White House later this month to have an “open and public” discussion on so-called health care reform.

Republicans should stay as far away from this sham as possible. Obama will simply use it as a media event in which he can appear to be statesman-like and also give him an opportunity to capture video and audio propaganda sound bites to smack Republicans in the head with through their zombies in the main stream media.

Uncle Barry has NO intention of listening to or incorporating any TRUE free market, Conservative ideas in this so-called reform. He has already said that he will not scrap the plan and start over on it using principles that really will lower costs and increase coverage WITHOUT big government involvement. There is and should be NO bi-partisanship on this issue. Republicans need to do their Constitutional duty and not only say “NO” but “HELL NO” (Thanks, Rush) to a government take over.

With that being said, I have a bad feeling that the Repubs will attend anyways and that scares me a lot. However, after reading the letter that minority leader John Boehner and Eric Cantor sent to Rahm Emanuel (no doubt to poke and prod him into another vulgar laced diatribe) to set the conditions and lay the groundwork under which Republicans would discuss possible reforms (and again, I would rather they do nothing) with the President. I wanted to include the link to this letter HERE

I suggest you read it and hopefully feel better that they are getting the message that they MUST be the party of freedom and liberty ALWAYS or they will be rejected and replaced by the patriots in this country just as quickly as the Marxists liberals will. One can only hope…


  1. Hi ct. I posted the letter (linked to your blog) on Twitter. President Obama must respond to the letter before the meeting to be considered genuine in his offer.
    I do believe the trap is for Republicans to NOT show up. But, will they be prepared? They must show up, they must be prepared - this is their moment to push over the summit. It will be instructive to see if they are up to the task. Fingers crossed...

  2. I agree if they are going to go they must be prepared and must not give in one iota to Obama and the lib plan. Again, for the Contitution's sake, they must be the party of NO and HELL NO! I fear they will crack and once you give them an inch, the libs will take over and Barry will get the media victory he seeks.

  3. I actually thought that Sen. Shelby, R-AL would hold his ground on the hold he had on Obama's nominees, but he too folded when they sweetened the pie for him too; they are all a bunch of sell-outs and WE THE PEOPLE MUST DELIVER THEIR PINK SLIPS TO BOTH PARTIES in 2010 AND 2012.
    Does anyone in this country truly beleive that this group of elected representatives of the people are as partisian as they want people to beleive they are - they ALL work for the SAME overlords and are chosen by them to get elected; hence we have to vote for the 'lesser of two evils' garbage they spew out every election cycle, pretending we actually have a choice.
    We deserve at the very LEAST a Senate and House of Reps. who OBEY THE CONSTITUTION and are NOT CONTINUOUSLY REWARDED for BAD BEHAVIOR. WE pay their salaries AND CADILLAC HEALTH CARE PLANS FOR LIFE, but they are beholden to the Corporations who write the bills that vote on without reading.

  4. Amen to that brother (or sister)!! Well said and thanks for posting...
