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

Osama bin Laden Dead. Now what?

Thoughts on the death of Osama bin Laden.

First of all, I am completely thrilled this monster and human excrement is now deceased. And I am laughing as I imagine his surprise when instead of waking up to 72 virgins in heaven, he instead is turning a golden brown in his fiery hell pit that he surely went to for the atrocities he was responsible for. The world is better off with him gone, although I do fear near term retaliation and a spike in terror over the coming weeks as al-Qaeda lashes out for the killing.

More importantly, credit needs to go to the proper place: our brave military, particularly the Navy Seals who dropped into unimaginable hostile territory to face down bin Laden. And also the intelligence groundwork that George Bush established after 9/11 including "enhanced interrogation" techniques that appears to be a main factor in the mission.

Now for some other thoughts…

First, I get nauseous and angry as I watch the two-faced pathetic left, you know, those who called George Bush a war criminal, those who degrade, spit and other wise put down and demonize our military for their own sick reason, and who are generally anti-American anyways NOW all of a sudden come out and thump their chests at the killing of bin Laden and praising the military today that they were spitting on yesterday? How hypocritical these dirt bags are as they wave the banner of America now that they were stomping on yesterday.

Of course the answer is because it is Barack Hussein Osama, oops, Obama in office so it is ok now according to them. You know, the same Obama that routinely goes around the world demonizing and putting down the United States, undermining our sovereignty, and making us a second class republic. Or when he sicks his court jester Attorney General on our own troops and reading Miranda rights to terrorists on the battlefield.

Check out this “spontaneous” Obama campaign rally disguised as a bin Laden death celebration at the Whitehouse Sunday evening. Who do these people think they are kidding? Perhaps a little Organinzing for America coordination with Whitehouse intelligence before the news was made public?? Nah, just a crazy conspiracy theory…

Second, I would like to know (and I am sure we will get a true, forthright detail of the mission-yeah right) circumstances and events behind the kill. Was the plan to kill him all along or was that a backup once the mission apparently stumbled when the helicopter went down over the compound? We are hearing now that maybe bin Laden was not armed and was not using a human shield when he was confronted by our troops.

If that is the case, and there was no immediate need to shoot him dead, why did we not capture him?? Can you imagine the intelligence that could have been gleaned from this scum? It could have helped unravel the rest of al-Qaeda or at least its leadership. But instead, we take out the #1 guy we have been searching for 10 years and let him off easy with a quick death.

Perhaps a “wag the dog” moment by Obama or perhaps yet another failure of protecting our country on his part by killing instead of interrogating him. All for what? Poll numbers? His despise of this country so great that he would rather throw away the intelligence and risk more lives? A way to keep the war machine raging and convince everyone that we need a massive intrusive government at home to “protect us” from the monsters?

God, I pray none of these to be the case but with this President, anything is possible…

Bin Laden is dead and we should all take satisfaction in that, but are we any safer? Are you simply cutting off one head of a monster to only see another one grow? And at what cost in money and lives? Does the radical Muslim world respect or like us anymore after decades of interventionalism and nation building? Since Obama took office? NO!! They are hell bent on a global Islamic caliphate and despite all of our outreach, “good will”, attempts at “not offending” Muslims, blood and treasure, etc there are radical Islamic animals who have formed groups and packs around the world. The latest attempt at this ill-fated outreach is actually washing and memorializing bin Laden’s body before giving him a sea burial. Does anyone REALLY believe that will make a scintilla of difference in whether these radicals and terrorists decide to attack us here or abroad? We should bring our troops home, TRULY secure our borders here and snuff out any and all radical elements on our own shores and in the words of John Quincy Adams, 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.”

God Bless the USA.
