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

Raise the Debt Ceiling: NO WAY!!

Ok, so you now know my position. Plain and simple there is NO reason and certainly no RUSH to raise the debt ceiling!
Remember, Obama is a community organizer whose whole mantra is to use fear and intimidation to get his way (like the rest of government many times unfortunately). Just look at Stimulus, TARP, Healthcare Bill, etc...
He is trying to force an artificial 11th hour deadline which is arbitrary and has no significance. The truth is that the Federal government has more than enough money coming in to pay the so-called entitlement spending of Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and VA/military as well as pay interest service on the debt! And Obama has NO plan! He is an empty suit with empty ideas not intelligent enough to engage in a meaningful discussion without Alinsky tactics.

Obama's fear tactics are simply for 3 reasons:
1. His goal is to collapse our society and economy so it can be rebuilt on a European-Socialist model (or worse).
2. He is trying to protect his legions of bureaucrats and government workers from being laid off and scaled back DRASTICALLY! Let's face it, he knows and they know most of them are not needed and are simply sponges off the private sector, sucking the life out of the productive in this country.
3. Finally, to insulate the dirty and cowardly politicians in Washington--on both sides of the aisle--who refuse to get off their crack-like addiction to spending other people's money to advance their power and political careers!

It isn't any more complicated than that...we have a spending problem, NOT a revenue problem!

I applaud and praise the REAL Conservatives and Tea Party Congress people who are holding firm and demanding REAL and massive cuts before any debt ceiling raise is even considered. The time is now! We need to beat back the left, Obama, and the phony fraud Republicans like John McCain (who in a disgusting display on the Senate floor ripped the Tea Party for daring to stand up to big government spending) . And he wonders why he lost in 2008?? If you just arrived here on Earth and had a 5 minute course on the differences between liberals and Conservatives and heard McCain's speech, which side would you have guessed he is on??

The Boehner plan does nothing to address the problem. It is simply a temporary stop gap with phony back ended cuts that will never happen and forms another useless committee whose recommendations will be ignored by Congress --unless there are tax increases that is! And it is dead on arrival in the Senate, only to be replaced with an even worse Reid plan or a compromise plan that will include the worst of both--phony cuts AND tax increases! What kind of "compromise" is that?? Washington style!

The Congress has all the power in this! They were 3 votes away from getting a Balanced Budget Amendment in the Senate (although I am not totally sold on that either)! Force the hand of Harry Reid and Barack Obama! Show them as the big spenders that refuse to break their addiction! Push Obama into a corner even further! Let him try to invoke the phony power many on the left are pushing in invoking the 14th Amendment to raise the debt ceiling on his own without the Congress. Let him try that and then we can start impeachment proceedings against him! Show him for the dictator and thug he truly is!

We cannot wait for "perfection" in the Congress! Even if we have all 3 branches of control as Conservatives, the left and RINO's will ALWAYS find reasons why we can't slice and dice the government--it just won't happen!

The time is now! Make Obama, Reid, Pelosi, RINO's, etc go on record for opposing what a vast majority of Americans want so they can be cast out in 2012. But we cannot wait until then. Force their hand and go for the gold--our very future depends on it!!
