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

The Joker (and Joke) Unmasked!

The mask is off the joke and fraud that is Barack Hussein Obama. The man who campaigned to end partisan bickering and the supposed pragmatist is now showing himself for what he is—and what anyone who cared to dig into his past and know his history and associations—a hard left, radical Chicago thug and Marxist, and maybe worse. Remember all dictators and devils come as smooth talkers and smiling waving to adoring crowds with one hand while they stab you in the heart with the other.

This week shows Obama beginning to double down on his radicalism as he feels his oats from his illegal, unethical, immoral and un Constitutional takeover of healthcare, the student loan industry, the recess appointment of bureaucrats including fellow radical and anti-capitalist Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board (against the wishes of Democrats and Republicans). In addition, his wag-the-dog Afghanistan trip to make it look like he actually cares about our troops and national security and more likely a distraction from the healthcare debate and an attempt to make him look Presidential (ala Bill Clinton bombing an empty aspirin factory during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.) and the curiously suspicious FBI raid on a “Christian” militia group in Michigan setting up the images of anti-government groups and (undoubtedly) “right wing extremists” for a future unconstitutional crackdown on guns as soon as the American people begin to really revolt against his radical unpopular policies with help of a sycophant main stream media 24 hour news cycle all to willing to do his bidding.

Republicans and Conservatives need to take an equally hard but opposite stand against Obama. They need to CLEARY and UNEQUIVOCALLY paint the contrast to this madman and his policies and leave NO room for question on where we stand. The time for any kind of bipartisanship is over! Bipartisanship gets us nowhere but to losing elections and power and gives us candidates like John McCain and Lindsey Graham for our trouble—men all to willing to compromise our republic and get in bed with the devils to advance their power and agenda. Let there be that true contrast and therefore the American people will have a clear choice in November. That being the further and accelerating destruction of American as we have known it, or at least putting on the brakes of Obama’s radicalism and look forward to 2012 and throw him out of office and in the meantime work on nullifying and voiding Obama policies at the state level and encourage state legislatures to push back hard as their (and our) survival is at stake!

If not, we will be rolled under by ever growing government and policies that will soon bury us all including illegal alien amnesty, Cap and Trade, and much, much more.
You cannot negotiate with the devil; you must stand up to it and vanquish it. Otherwise it will consume and destroy YOU. Again, which side are you on??

The Case for The Article 5 Convention

Our Founding Fathers and the Framers of the Constitution were brilliant and foreseeing in so many ways it gives me chills when I read and hear their words on what they feared a to powerful central government would become and do to us.

There is no greater example of this than the Health Care Reform (or Destruction) bill that King Barry signed into law this week. This disastrous bill, which I and many others have written extensively about in the last year plus, along with the rest of the liberal/progressive agenda that we have laid back and taken since 1900 or so are well on their way to destroying the very foundation and values this republic was built on and eons from the vision those great men had for us in 1787.

We as true Conservatives and Patriots pleaded, begged, called, emailed, attended town halls, protested, wrote blogs, wrote editorials and every other other possible way we could to get our point across that we want no part of Obamacare. The polls were massively against it and only grew as they continued to discuss it and people found out what was in it. But still they didn't listen and rammed through the biggest nanny state takeover since FDR.

While I agree that these people that supported this, and any future disasters they are contemplating, need to be shown the door in November (or better yet arrested!)under no uncertain terms, I fear that this will only be a band aid and temporary fix to what ails our great Republic. They may only be replaced by people who want to manage the beast rather than what needs to be done--which is destroy and dismantle it. Replacing it with just "Republicans" or so-called Blue Dog Dems (sneer and chuckle) will not stop our ride off the cliff. At best it would just get us there on a tricycle instead of a locomotive (paid for by Obama Stimulus money).

No, our Framers have given us another way to reign in a tyrannical government--peacefully but firmly and return power to the states. That is Article 5 which gives the states and the people a method to force Congress to call a convention to modify the Constitution. Although the Congress can also call such a convention, there is almost no chance of that happening since they have proven they are unwilling to reign themselves in. Again, our Framers knew this was a possibility and they have given us the remedy.

Such a convention could be used to, among other things:
1. Clarify the Commerce Clause so that Congress cannot regulate industry from Washington, but just to make trade and Commerce "regular" between the states--as it was originally intended. Health care is a perfect example of this as Congress could make sure that the conditions are set to allow free and open competition of private insurers amongst all the states to compete for customers thus increasing choice and driving down costs. Isn't this what they supposedly advocate now??
2. Repeal of the 17th Amendment which took away the states role in appointing Senators as the Framers intended and instead gave it to the people, essentially making it just another extension of the House, only with 6 year terms. The Framers purposely had the state legislatures picking Senators so that it was a check on mob rule democracy from within each state and to have the power to recall them if they were not representing the will of the state. It would be highly unlikely that such Senators would go to Washington and vote for things like Obamacare knowing the enormous hardship it would place on the state government and under the fear of being recalled if they did so.

Other possibilities would be to clarify the 14th Amendment (Due Process Clause) which has been massively twisted and abused throughout history and to repeal the 16th Amendment--which was never really ratified anyways! Empower individual taxpayers to bring suit against the Feds for injunctive relief. Require a balanced Federal budget except in a time of war. Allow state legislatures to overturn unconstitutional decisions of Federal judges. The list goes on and on...

Some fear that such a convention could make things worse as they fear liberal states would send liberal representatives there and suggest even more radical, left wing changes. This I believe is not a valid reason to not have such a convention. Why? Because each state, no matter how large and liberal, would only get 1 vote each in deciding on what amendments to send to the states. And once sent back to the states, 3/4 of the state legislators would have to vote to ratify them. And despite what MSNBC tell you, this is a center/right country (just look at the polls over health care!) and I would have no fear that any radical changes would ever be accepted by that majority.

I would suggest that if you are not familiar with such a method, that first you read the Constitution (how novel!) and find out about the process. Then you need to get involved in pushing for it in your state. Contact your state reps that are running and currently holding office and ask them their stance on this and push them to call for it or vote them out! Hell, run for the office yourself then and take the bull by the horns! And get involved directly in the movement with like minded Patriots like these.

This is a golden piece of history and opportunity to finally call the out of control Federal government and courts to the carpet and reign them in! This is our duty and obligations as Americans and our Founders would expect no less from us.

So the final question is: Whose side are you on?

The Stupak Sham and Fraud

Congressman Bart Stupak (D) Michigan ( and others), once hailed as a "pro life" Democrat, has proved that he is a sham, fraud, and no friend to the unborn by his blind support for the health care bill last night.

This traitor to the anti-abortion movement claims that an Executive Order attached to the bill at tthe last minute supposedly banning abortions under the legislation is what swayed him to support the bill.

But "Stupid" Stupak knows that Executive Orders have no real enforceable power and cannot modify an act of Congress. Courts have barred such orders from being enforced when challenged in court when such orders are contrary to established law. Therefore this agreement holds NO legal weight and is basically a wink and nod to the pro abortion crowd and will mean NOTHING in reality.

Abortions ARE covered in this bill and WILL be covered. Especially when you consider that Kathleen Sebelius, the most gleeful supporter of baby killing ever, is running this department.

The Hyde Amendment DOES NOT bar coverage of abortion as the amendment states that unless there is SPECIFIC LANGUAGE barring this procedure, then it CAN be covered.

Like King Barry has always done, he is playing a shell game to fool and dupe idiot Congressmen like Stupak and the gullible American public into signing onto a plan that will ultimately kill you.

Bart Stupak is going to stripped of his pro-life advocacy status by the Susan B. Anthony Foundation for his betrayal. I applaud them and I hope this fraud is thrown out of office next!

Let's show Stupak and the rest of the monsters the door ASAP. The unborn deserve no less from us!

By a narrow vote of 219-212 , the Socialist, Communist, Anti-American radicals known as the Democrat party passed the bill that will fundamentally alter and destroy our Republic as we have known it. This illegal takeover of the largest part of the American private sector and a part that is the most personal to Americans has been trashed and compromised by people who have NO REGARD for your soverignty and privacy as a person and are people who loathe or Constitution and history.

They are no better than any other Socialist dictators and monsters such as Hugo Chavez, Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong Il, and all other from the past. And they are lead by the biggest monsters and threat to our nation--Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and of course Barack Hussein Obama--the most wholly unqualified man to ever hold the office. A man who has spent his entire life raised and mentored to be a rabid radical who hates our great country. He has surrounded himself with like minded madmen. He told us that he would fundamentally change the country and the gullible that voted for him in the election fell for his poison tongue. But he is nothing but a wolf in sheep's clothing. And he is leading the rest of the sheep to slaughter.

Their endless craving for pwer, wealth redistribution, and control over EVERY LAST ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE is insatiable and unstoppable as we have witnessed in this illegal bill and how it has been passed.

Every last one that voted for it not only needs to be thrown out of office. That would be to easy. Instead, they need to be arrested and lead away in handcuffs for violation of their oath of office and Barack Obama needs to be immediately impeached when he signs this bill.

Be aware and fore warned liberal scum politicians, you have no idea of the anger and disdain you have awokened and unleashed in the American people. This is just the very beginning of, I'm afraid, of a dark time in our country. The waves of unrest, lawsuits, citizen disobediance, state nullifcation, possible succession and all out revolts that will follow if this is not stopped will be all consuming.

You can smile and cheer "Yes You Can" like the brain dead Obama-bot zombies and dicatator wannabes all of you are in the House but it will be short lived. The giant has been unleashed.

In the immortal words of Thomas Jefferson:

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the factsthey misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ...And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are notwarned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit ofresistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right asto the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lostin a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed fromtime to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.It is its natural manure."

...and liberals are the ultimate tyrants! God help us all!

We're Not In Chicago Anymore Toto!!

Click you heels King Barry and wish you were back n Chicago again! First, King Barry had his lunch handed to him by Fox's Brett Baier on Wednesday discussing the health care reform bill. Like the typical Constitution hating Socialist he is, he totally brushed off the procedural trickery that the liberals in Congress may use to avoid a constitutionally mandated process to passing a bill (Article 1, Section 7).

Obama was angry, ill-informed, unprepared, bombastic, and condescending during the interview and was totally on defense against someone who was just the opposite and had his facts straight.

Now Obama has decided to indefinitely post pone his overseas trip to stay in Washington so he can use his classic south side of Chicago street thug tactics (wouldn’t be surprised if he brings in some of his SEIU and AFL/CIO union goons) and strong arm and bang heads of the wavering Democrats so that he and Queen Pelosi can have a vote on Sunday. There is no doubt that they do not have the votes right now and these wavering Democrats are scared to death of the MASSIVE back lash they will face if they do vote for it.

States are lining up by the dozens to assert their 10th Amendment rights to nullify this disaster and passage of this bill will mean virtual revolution in this country as the will of the American people is clearly against this bill!

And, in a little known but no less dangerous fact is that this bill contains a provision that WILL NATIONALIZE THE COLLEGE STUDENT LOAN INDUSTRY MAKING IT ILLEGAL TO GET A PRIVATE STUDENT LOAN!! Again, totally unconstitutional and more scary is how do you think Obama and liberals will decide who gets this money (yours and mine!) and at what terms?? Can you say more social engineering?? What if you or your child doesn’t want to go to an institution of indoctrination on the government’s dime and instead wants to start a business or learn a trade? Will they be treated different or like a lesser citizen?

The heat is on as the last few days tick away before the big vote on Sunday. Keep up the pressure and KILL THIS BILL! Let your congress person know they will be held to account if they vote for this and that they are violating their oath of office and you will see that they pay for that transgression.

Defeating this bill will maybe make King Barry want to click his heels and go back to his community agitating ways and days in Chicago—I know I am counting on that!!

“There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…………….”

The Final Epic Battle on Healthcare is Here! RESIST!!

First, earlier this week we had Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius tell a group of insurance executives that it is their “patriotic” and “moral” obligation to drop opposition to Obamacare.

This is insulting a multiple levels. First, comparing supporting the government’s takeover of our healthcare system to the true patriots in this country—in particularly our brave men and women in uniform is despicable.

Second, this woman is a demon in my opinion. In fact if you put a red and black cape on her and added horns to head, she would look like the devil’s apprentice. And for a person who has been an avid supporter of the pro-abortion industry and in fact has never met a fetus she didn’t want to abort (a.k.a the other Mrs. George Tiller) to preach morality to ANYONE is an insult!! This sorry excuse for a person has the blood of untold numbers of children that she allowed to be executed before they were born will, and should be damned for what she has allowed in return for campaign money and power in Kansas. And now she lies and dodges the fact that abortions WILL be federally funded via the Senate health bill. Hey, I guess if you butcher enough children there will be less of them to be born and draw on the massive inefficient healthcare bureaucracy she is supporting so maybe she is on the right track…and less people means less carbon emissions to cause global warming so it is actually a 2 for 1!! Wow, why didn’t I think of that sooner? She is such a forward looking genius!!

Now we find out that since the scum liberals and King Barry don’t have the votes, especially in the House, to jam Obamacare down our throats in the traditional Constitutional method that bills are passed, they are coming up with the most vile, sneaky, illegal, and unconstitutional way in history to pass legislation. Such tactics are grossly illegal and will lead to a massive rebellion and a Constitutional crisis and showdown the likes of which we have NEVER seen in this country. This is the most outward attack on our Constitution EVER and is blatant attempt at circumventing the very foundation of our Republic that our Framers set up in 1787. Obamacare violates so many Constitutional provisions that I will not even deal with them here.

The latest trick they are contemplating is to use a made up procedural move in the House to pass the Senate bill without ever actually voting on it!! The Slaughter Trick explained...Yes, you read that right. The gutless left is SO desperate to pass this Holy Grail end game to their Marxist takeover that they will trash and burn their oaths’ of office to get it done. Every one of them that supports this move should be led away in handcuffs for violating their oath of office! They will pass, without voting, the Senate bill, send it to Obama for signing, and then supposedly sending it back for small “fixes” through the so-called reconciliation process—yet another abuse and usurpation of power by the left and the filthy Marxist Obama.

Again, the ultimate goal of passing Obamacare has NOTHING TO DO with healthcare, but is about the takeover of 16% of the Gross Domestic Product of this country and then dictating lifestyles through government nanny-state rationing, doling out care to the politically connected (remember NO politician or well connected liberal will EVER participate in Obamacare) Socialism is for everyone EXCEPT the Socialist!

Obamacare will destroy, by design, the private health insurance industry. By dictating that insurers cannot deny anyone with a preexisting condition AND at the same time not allowing them to raise premiums on others to defer and make up the shortfall while at the same time undercutting (at least initially) the private sector with a less expensive public plan, they will drive people off the private plans and starve those plans to death. Make no mistake; this IS the goal—regardless of what King Barry says. Don’t believe me?? Listen to Obama and other filthy liberals in their own words! And just as a side note, what will happen to the thousands of jobs that will be lost in the private insurance sector once these companies are bankrupt?? Again, all part of the plan…

And I am so very sick and tired of hearing the anecdotal stories of people that have been supposedly wronged by their insurance company or by their lack of coverage. How about finding people and telling tragic stories of lives ruined by the intrusiveness of big government. Businesses and families ripped apart because of bureaucracy or insidious tax regulations and rules?? No, that wouldn’t fit the template of the left after all, because government after all is the God and Savior of Socialists and if some need to be sacrificed, then so be it.

You must, as a Patriotic American that wants to see this country survive as it was originally constructed, resist and fight this plan as much as possible. Go here to check out the list of "swing" Democrats and CALL or EMAIL them IMMEDIATELY!!

I dread and fear to see what is going to happen if this is passed. Succession?? Nullification? Article 5 Convention?? All of the above may be necessary. Our Founders and Framers gave us the clear path and direction to beat back a tyrannical government. And this, along with most of the last 80 years, is a clear example of a tyrannical government. Return authority to the States and the people and reduce our Federal government to the specific enumerated powers they have been given in the Constitution. It is our only hope as a Republic.

Obama's Radical Environmentalism May Ban Fishing!

Don't laugh; this post is NOT a joke! If you like to fish, eat fish, know someone who works in the fishing industry, know someone who is a supplier to the fishing industry (like your local bait and tackle shop), etc you had better read THIS article and then take action with your representative!

King Barry, through Executive Order and under cover of a another Obama “task force” is set to possibly BAN all fishing in possibly EVERY body of water as well as coastal and US ocean waters as a payback and bone to the radical environmentalists that will not stop until they can take down the human race in general. This is another sneak attack by the radical Obama and the henchmen who do his bidding and provide him political cover. This guy will wield his Presidential power in any unconstitutional way that he sees fit to destroy as much of your liberty and freedom as Americans that he can! He will destroy the livelihood of millions of Americans if this ever comes to fruition—which of course is the end goal of all liberal policies especially a Marxist radical like Barack Hussein Obama.

Read this article and find out more about this because otherwise the next time you and your kid want to grab your fishing poles and head down to the local lake on a Saturday afternoon to fish, watch out because one of King Barry’s brown shirt thug environmental henchman may slap cuffs on you and take you away!

But don’t worry, they just “care” about protecting the environment from us bad humans. Yeah, just like healthcare reform is actually about healthcare, right??

Ready the Militias! Full Frontal Assault on the Republic on at least 3 Fronts!

ObamaCare: In case you have been living under a rock, Obama and his scum Congressional liberals are gearing up to ram through Obamacare this month before the Easter recess using reconciliation—a little used method that is only supposed to be used for budgetary legislation and not MASSIVE social programs that have 0% bipartisan support.
The liberals know this is their last chance this year to make it happen and Nazi Pelosi (thanks, Mike Church) and Harry Reid are twisting arms and cutting backroom deals to get their jittery members in line to vote for this destruction of free market health care (what little there is left) even if it means destroying the political careers of many Democrats, I mean Marxists… one in the same anyways... because they know that thee will be future power and placement in the massively expanding Federal Government down the line for them to once again give them back their positions of power and control that they live for.

The Marxists can taste victory as government takeover of healthcare will be the Holy Grail for them because with control of health, EVERYTHING else in your life will be regulated and dictated by the nanny state. You will pay massively higher taxes, get massively inferior care, destroy innovation of drugs and technologies, and be rationed out of existence as soon as your useful life, according to a bureaucrat, has expired. Whatever you do, don’t get a life threatening illness, especially if you are older, because you will NOT get the same care opportunities you get now. You will be told that you are to expensive and care will be denied. There is no other way to cover this massive entitlement financially without rationing.

And part of the strategy of securing future power back is the plan that is quietly being talked about in the background about reviving the illegal amnesty bill that, like Obamacare, was soundly rejected by Americans. King Barry along with anti-American groups like LaRaza and useful idiot Republicans like John McCain and Lindsey Graham are discussing this policy with the rest of the pro-amnesty Democrats. They know that if they get this voting group amnesty, they can secure a massive new voting block forever to keep them perpetually in power over American citizens. These people need to be expelled from the country by any means necessary and Congress people that support them should be thrown out office for selling their country’s sovereignty down the river. Take a look at any regular town in Mexico my friends. That image will be coming to your town as well if this is allowed to move forward.

Cap and Trade: The Obama Socialists in the EPA are gearing up to give political cover to Obama and other anti-capitalist Congress people and liberal state governors and Attorney Generals to regulate carbon emissions WITHOUT the consent of legislation and Congress. The black robed thugs on the Supreme Court in their infinite scientific wisdom (not) gave the EPA the permission to regulate green house gases to save us from the hoax of global warming. Such a move is clearly unconstitutional and will no doubt set up a crisis between states as well as in Congress from both sides of this. Meanwhile, King Barry the Coward will just sit back and laugh as his bureaucratic machine drives the train of our economy right off the cliff and he keeps his hands clean all the while.

Cap and Trade, like ObamaCare, is just another way to extricate and redistribute wealth, destroy our economy and reshape it into a slogging European, centrally controlled monster that will lead to the destruction of the middle class, massive taxes and, there it is again, full government control over your life and liberty—all in the name of “Saving the Planet”. If you want some true, plain language and comedic commentary on the idiocy of the Green movement check this out! THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IDIOT, MARXIST ENVIRONMENTALISTS—MANY OF WHICH LIVE NEXT DOOR TO YOU CLICK HERE!!! You people better think twice about supporting such nonsense because you will be destroyed by the very policies that you now support!


So King Barry runs up more debt and grows government more in the year he has been in office than any other President. And now that he has done so, in the true Saul Alinsky style, will now pull another deception and play another shell game by pretending that he is concerned about our massive debt that will soon crush our country into financial, and maybe worse, oblivion.

Obama, by dictator fiat, created a so-called debt panel with a bunch of unqualified, pro-Obama, pro-big government hacks and a few useful Republican idiots and show pieces like the washed up Alan Simpson (I can’t believe this guy is still alive!). But the prize package for Obama on this fraud panel is Service Employees International Union head purple-shirted thug Andy Stern. See the story here. This sorry excuse for a human being should be LAST person to get anywhere near anything that has to do with proper and productive economic policies and efficient business practices because, like Obama, his whole purpose is to bully, degrade, and destroy capitalism and wealth while enriching himself and his other union thugs. He is a true Marxist (just like King Barry) that believes in elevating union thuggery onto the backs of the union rank and file and stealing and extorting as much as he can from the legitimate private sector then uses the money to funnel to people like Barack Hussein Obama and other pro-union-thug groups who then write legislation and policy (like the pending Card Check Bill) to further strengthen their power while they tear apart the very people they claim to look out for.

We are under assault everyone, and these people will not stop until they are truly rulers and not just politicians. They care NOTHING about you, your liberties, the Constitution, and the success and survival of our country. I am not even convinced an election will stop them. It will only substitute one bad apple with another. We just do not have enough true patriotic people in power in this country. What we will need is an Article 5 convention to strengthen the Constitutional limits placed on the government and to close the loop holes that they continue to use to circumvent us and the limits our Founders originally intended for them to have. We also must take back our State governments as well and throw out the Socialists in the states who are in bed with Washington and will do nothing to stop or block the violations of Washington DC. They must be willing to stand up and say NO to the usurpation of states’ rights by the Federal government and be willing to nullify and void policies that clearly are designed to replace state sovereignty with Federal control and the nanny state. What will it take before the majority of Americans wake up and realize what is happening to their country?? That many of the very people they support and send to office care nothing about those that put them there and are only concerned about securing perpetual power and control for themselves ever more and creating a true 2 class system—the haves and the have-nots and no middle class in between

True patriotic Americans must take a stand to take back our country and not follow so blindly in the belief that one or two election cycles will solve our deep problems. At best it could slow it down but I believe most politicians are in it for their own survival and in the end will cave to the big government good-ole boys club in the cesspool of Washington. Just look at what happened to the one-man filibuster this week with Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning. His own party chastised and abandoned him when push came to shove in order to save their own political face. But what many don’t realize is that if they actually stood up for people like Senator Bunning and the Constitution, they would be applauded and praised by the majority of Americans. The same so-called Conservatives that participated in the dog and pony show in the Obamacare summit last week, threw their colleague overboard when he stood up and made a stand against more debt spending and tried to slow down the suicide financial train that we are on—at least for a moment. Senator Bunning is not totally free of hypocrisy here. While I applaud what he did, I believe he only did it because he is not running for reelection so he did not need to consider that action. What it proves is that he(and most politicians) knows the current path is dangerous and unsustainable but that their incumbency and positions of power are more important.
