What's next from this marxist administration and the kenyan who would be king???

A friend who works at a car dealership recently told me about the “Cash for Clunkers” program at his dealership. Whether a vehicle is worth $100 or $4,000, the government will give you $4,500. They then are required to take what are often fully functional cars and trucks, drain the oil and transmission fluid, and effectively kill the engine, on the lot, so it cannot be reused. The car is then sent to the salvage yard where it is crushed. The dealer cannot save the doors, bumpers, stereo, seats, cattle guards (a common accessory in Texas), or even the tires. The government requires the entire vehicle be completely destroyed.

I cannot imagine a more wasteful program, but when the government becomes an owner of a car company, and must find a way to increase sales, I’m not the least bit surprised that they would come up with such a ridiculous solution. Let's tax working Americans and give their hard earned dollars to people who have functioning cars, enticing them to buy a new, more expensive car they probably cannot afford. Didn’t we just try something like this with houses?

I bought a ’70 AMC Pacer for $600 when I was in high school. That was how much I had saved and all I could afford. The monthly payment on a brand new car, much less the insurance, was beyond my means. The car let me drive to work until I saved enough money to buy a nicer used car. I eventually worked my way up to a Ford Torino, and then a brand new Chevy Camero. It took years, but I learned a lot about working and saving. What kind of message is our government sending when it takes tax dollars from hard working Americans and then pays someone else two or ten times what their vehicle is worth to buy a car they probably cannot afford? The recipient doesn’t even need to be in our country legally. To make matters worse, the government then destroys these functioning vehicles. No effort is made to use any of the parts or recoup any of the value.

Today, despite an $11 trillion deficit and unemployment approaching 10%, our government decides to destroy cars nearing the end of their life but still worth $4,500.

That is sheer lunacy. Would I be wrong to consider possible similarities between a government run automobile industry and a government run health care system? American car companies are in trouble. Despite tens of billions of dollars in government handouts, they still face major structural problems. The government’s solution: destroy aging "products" that are worn down and nearing the end of their useful life. Will that theme be applied by this out-of-control government to fix health care when they realize we have a capacity problem? I certainly hope the people running the car industry don’t become the leaders of the soon-to-be nationalized Health Care System.

But, don’t for one second believe this is a problem limited to the Democratic Party. Remember that it was the Republicans who tried to buy votes with their pharmaceutical bill in 2003. Then Representative Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill) complained in a Washington Post article the bill would be much more expensive than then President Bush claimed, and he was right. The projected cost had already doubled by 2006. Now, the roles are reversed. The Democrats are pushing for more government health care, and the Republicans are crying the cost will be significantly higher than what is being touted. No kidding.

Politicians and the parties are playing a terrible game, amassing horrendous deficits that are certain to destroy our country. Each party makes a promise even more outrageous than the one the other party just made in an effort to buy power. They are printing money and using it to buy votes. What will they try to "retire" next?

We all see what is happening. We know the emperor has no clothes. But will enough Americans care to do something about it?

Our plan to retake control of our government continues to grow at an accelerating rate. Grass root organizations are sprouting up all over, people are starting to take notice! But, we must do more. You, personally, must do more. We need every person in America to know that there is a solution. You need to not only contact every person you know (again), but reach out to new groups.

One hundred years from now our history books will tell the story of how a statist lib started a Revolution by waking up the conservative giant called "The United States Of America". Are you doing your part to help write that story?

The Patriot Act is Not Conservative

If Americans needed another reminder of why the Democratic Party is absolutely worthless, they got it during last week’s Patriot Act extension debate when Senate Majority leader Harry Reid again behaved exactly like the Bush-era Republicans he once vigorously opposed. In 2005, Reid bragged to fellow Democrats, “We killed the Patriot Act.” Today, Reid says that anyone who opposes the Patriot Act might be responsible for the killing of Americans. Dick Cheney now hears an echo and Americans deserve congressional hearings—as to whether Harry Reid is a sociopath, mere liar, or both.

Universal Healthcare is SLAVERY

Supporters of Universal Healthcare want to impose an individual mandate on all working Americans. By doing this, they are sanctioning slavery on the American People. On 09/09/09, President Obama addressed the Congress and the nation, stating that individuals would be required to purchase healthcare. Anyone who does not will be fined up to $1,900, thrown in prison, and fined an additional $25,000. This is a perfect example of government tyranny, and is more properly termed, "fascism." In any program designed to help others, there is always an option to withdraw or not participate. A person who doesn’t want to buy auto insurance can opt not to drive a car. A person who doesn’t want house insurance can rent instead of buying a house. In the case of healthcare, a tax is placed on the right to LIFE itself. We should remember that even the slavemasters of old were interested in the healthiness of their slaves. A person who cannot opt out is not free—he or she is nothing but a slave. Socialist programs like Social Security, Medicare, and the Draft all result in slavery or involuntary servitude. Now is the time to uphold the 13th Amendment by defeating Unconstitutional Healthcare.
