Response to obams` (unpresidential) state of the union address....

I will present to you an accurate, honest accounting on the actual condition of our affairs, not what I would like for you to believe they are.

First let’s go over some vocabulary we’ll be using tonight that you may not be familiar with starting with The Constitution. The Constitution Is what’s contained in this pocket sized book. Inside it you will find a plan of government, our government. It means what the men who wrote and ratified it said that it meant to them not what you would like it to mean today. If you are unhappy that this document places restrictions on what you would like our federal government to do for you or to another citizen then please read Article V of this Constitution, there you will find instructions on how to amend the document so that it rises to your expectations.

Our Second vocabulary word is Entitlement: If I have earned a sum of money and I deposit it in a safe in my home, I am ENTITLED to retrieve it and spend it as I choose. In contrast, my next door neighbor or a citizen in the next state is NOT entitled to what is contained in my safe to spend as they choose. If my neighbors aren’t entitled to my safe’s contents then why is my Congressman or my Governor or my mayor? They believe they are because they have ignored the Constitution I spoke of earlier and have created government programs like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and SCHIP to name a few. Those that enroll in these programs are told they are entitled to what is contained in my safe to fund them, they are wrong and tonight I shall call on you to end this practice and to star calling these programs by what they actually are executing: Legal Plunder. You may also call this theft at the point of the IRS gun.

This brings us to Vocabulary words 4 and 5: Property and Plunder. Property is what is owned outright by a citizen in a free society. Governments are instituted by free men to protect their private property from those who would plunder it. Plunder is the theft of another man’s property with the intention of making it your property. Plunder will always be the preferred method of acquiring property by lazy, designing men and women. Our Constitution and the state governments created and organized by their Constitutions were designed by men who wanted to protect their private property from plunder. Today, at every level of government this formula is now exactly backwards. Governments are organized to execute the plunder safely for the ruling class that doesn’t have the courage to perform the task themselves. The great French philosopher Frederic Bastiat wrote that “men will always choose plunder over profit so long as it is safe and not dangerous to their health” well tonight I call on you to serve notice to the plunderers: plunder just became a very dangerous occupation.

Our governments have created many classes of plunderers and they aren’t all of the direct public assistance variety. They are outnumbered by those plunderers in big business who have decided that buying favor with politicians by funding their campaigns and employing their family and friends in return for subsidies and regulations that punish their competitors is preferable to earning profits the old fashioned way. Plunder also comes in the form of those now infamous bailouts which most of you think have ended…they haven’t. Plunderers can also be found working at expert centers across the country where the rules that government makes are studied to measure their impact and then recommend new rules be made that will require new institutions to study them. And then there are institutions studying institutions and you fellow citizen are paying for every paper they write, pixel they push and paper clip they buy. Plunderers have also set up camp and enlisted tens of thousands of our former military, trained at our expense and now working to keep unneeded and unnecessary weaponry cranking out 24/7. It’s nice work if you can find it and it needs to end because we are broke. In the words of Bill Clinton “It is time to make government plunder unsafe, illegal and rare.”

Tonight, we must commit to begin anew the restoration of virtue and humility in our public affairs. In doing so we will return to our republican roots and I mean to say our “little r-republican roots” and that is our final vocabulary word. Republicanism. Republicanism is the political system that our Founders organized under and can best be defined by citing an obscure statistic. In 1945, young men who returned home from World War II could have formed families and then enlisted to participate in the governing of their local schools. This young man would have had over 115,000 positions to choose from. In a mere 60 years a young woman returning from an undeclared war in Pakistan may choose to start a family and participate in governing her local school only to find it isn’t local any longer and there are less than 13,000 positions available. Republicanism has given way to what our Founders feared more mightily than any Army clad in Red coats or any Tax Act passed by parliament: Consolidation.

Here is what this consolidation of government, which was the design of last centuries “progressives”, who occupied office in both major political parties, has produced: A Federal Leviathan that consumes 24% of every dollar earned in this country. This does not include the unfunded - future liabilities- that are owed as part of the entitlements discussed earlier. In contrast, this same federal government, limited by the restraints the Constitution and fidelity to republicanism placed on it, spent on average no less than 3% of GDP. During this time, our economic liberty, lack of organized plunder and protection of private property produced improvements in the quality of life and life expectancy so unprecedented, new words had to be created to describe them as new devices and compounds were created to continue the improvements. What has truly been lost though cannot be measured in dollars and cents but can be measured in part by the faces of beautiful children who will never know what a father is. At the dawn of the Progressive’s Great Society a shocking amount of black children were born out of wedlock. That shocking number then was 38% after Tens of Trillions in direct wealth transfers and the destruction of inner city families brought on by Progressive initiatives that number is now 70% and I challenge the good people of these United States to coin a term that adequately describes this uniquely American tragedy.

As if this tragedy weren’t enough to ring every fire house bell in the land consider that the rate of illegitimate children born to white, unwed mothers is now approaching the rate the Great Society purported to arrest in 1964, 40% or more. Will we be more successful at stopping this slide into broken or never formed families which we know are recipes for pervasive poverty? Will we recognize that it is the transfer of the responsibility of citizenship from citizens to their government that is the principal culprit in this? Decisions that should be made closest to the people who must live under the burden of their implementation whether that is monetary or undermining of civil liberties have been stolen, “outsourced” if you will to governments and their helpful agencies who rely on their helpful non-partisan institutions. This is government by expert and as we have already heard once tonight this is the exact opposite of what our forefathers fought a revolution for. Is this the best that we can do for our posterity? Let us pray that we can and must do better.

I started this talk tonight by promising to give you an honest accounting of the state of the union, well here it is. Entire generations of Americans have been educated to believe the contorted theories of madmen can be made to work, if we just give them enough time, surrender enough liberty and forego enough prosperity. We have accepted our ruling elites dictates that a constantly devalued paper currency is preferable to a stable one based on a stored supply of a commodity. This is how $11.79 earned by the young hero returning from World War 2 has the purchasing power of exactly $1.00 today what will happen when that number approaches .75 cents then .50?
Our state of the union must also take stock of our future economic capacity. This capacity can only be fueled by one thing: savings. Historically Americans have saved about 8.5% of their income today that number is 3%. These savings represent future capital to be invested in an economic “recovery” and looking at this number that recovery if it happens at all will be weak.

Our state of the union must take into account that more than 16 % of citizens are now relying on direct assistance from the government in the form of food stamps. Over 17% report being unemployed or under employed. Household debt ratios which had begun to decline have now begun to rise again as the average per card -credit card balance now exceeds $5,000. Now armed with these few statistics it is easy to see how a political class chosen from the same group of citizens is so susceptible to corruption and so ignorant of common sense virtues. In short, fellow citizen of these united states it is “We the People” who need to take that long, reflective look in the mirror while demanding our leaders do the same and even that isn’t enough. The tens of millions of customers this Leviathan has created for it’s own perpetuation cannot just simply revert back to a way of life with which they are unfamiliar and when the ability to borrow our way into the next iPhone expires what will they do then? I can’t answer that question but I can tell you this, it is not too late to begin to prepare the way for this inevitability.

Start by getting to know your mayor and the church leaders in your area. Your State Representatives and Senators should be on a first name basis with you too. Drag out a copy of your state constitution and read it, become familiar with it and treat it like the law of the land that it is. Begin to ask questions of these people, ask for their opinions of republicanism and where their first loyalties in government may lie. If they answer “to obey my oath to the Constitution” remind them that that requires not only following the lawful acts of Congress but also opposing with manly vigor those that are not within that bodies power. As one of the great Virginia republicans of the 1790’s, guided by Jefferson and Madison’s resolutions in Ky & VA said “If Congress can oppose state laws it deemed destructive of it’s existence then certainly sovereign states under the Constitution can do the same to preserve themselves.”

You may wonder where the rest of tonight’s State of the Union statistics are and I say to you that if I were to present you a litany of numbers and statistics on the financial and debt crisis these United States is facing it would obscure the message presented here but here’s the short version. We are broke and we are broke to the point that every spending decision we allow any elected leader to make today will have a direct, destructive influence on our posterity. This includes “spending” on national defense & “intelligence” which amounts to 48% of the entire planet’s military and intelligence spending. A great people lead by example not by use of force. George Washington went to his grave praying that his “farewell address” would have lasting impact and inform future generations that a free people only form friendships with other states and “tangling alliances with none”. This requires us to bring our troops home now, end our occupations of 139 countries around the world and eat some humble pie. I hear they are baking lots of it at Congressman Ron Paul’s house these days, why not pay him a visit and hear what he has to say.

Finally let me leave you with a positive thought that though this response was hastily cobbled together and contains a litany of problems to be addressed there remains one great thing going for us that others in our station in life didn’t have and that is a healthy love for liberty and deep abiding respect for the work of our forefathers. Those men fought a revolution meaning they were rolling the clock backwards 1 revolution to life as free people living under their English Constitution and colonies laws. That I believe is a good plan for what Thomas Paine called the “winter soldier” to set his or her sights on. and borrowing a phrase from John F Kennedy, here is something I hope you can incorporate in what Washington called “this great work”.

“Ask not what a government program can do for you, but what you can do to end a government program.” Thank you for watching and listening and my God bless these United States of America.

Essentially what the Government has planned is to continue to suck money out of your pockets at an alarming rate by the monster that is Leviathan

Question: How many of you out there have a 5 year spending plan? How about a 5 month spending plan? Yeah, that's what we thought - it's tough to plan to spend things with money you haven't earned yet. Hell, there's accountants out there who don't even have a 5 minute spending plan.
So, since we've knocked the whole '5 year spending plan' out of the park as a viable option it would be ludicrous for anyone to stay on that thought plane right? Absolutely wrong, perhaps you've never met the United States Federal Government and their sparkling 9 year plan taking us to 2020, if everything still exists.

Essentially what the Government has planned is to continue to suck money out of your pockets at an alarming rate by the monster that is Leviathan. These leaves us at status quo - or as we here at Freedom for America like to refer to this situation as a change of deck chairs on the S.S. Leviathan Titanic. It is an infection folks, those who fall for it feel like these agencies and programs aren't so bad, maybe there are benefits somewhere in this hallucination I'm experiencing. Looks like we may be headed to the same destiny as California - going to the highest bidder!

If you missed it(events that lead us to this point)then this will interest you:
Remember when you were younger, high school maybe even college, and you had that big end of the year history test, that dreaded term-paper, or some semester long project that requires 4 months of research and 2 months of prep? Remember how you dove in head first, busted out the books and highlighters, went on a sleeping hiatus, gave all your distractions to charity, and hired a barista for your dorm-room? If you're anything like us you probably don't remember that because you, like the rest of the average student body, put it off until the last minute and then went on a craze-ridden, one-person hailstorm, wrath of cram session all-nighter that produced the sometimes surprising exceptional piece of work, given the circumstances, but usually produced mediocre work at best.

The Democrats have taken it amongst themselves to present us their horribly procrastinated, obviously rushed and poorly thrown together government wide spending bill on Tuesday. The bill is longer than the unabridged version of Alexadre Dumas' 'The Count of Monte Cristo', occupying more than 1,900 pages and intends to cost our already bleeding economy a measly $1.1 trillion. Also folks, when the bill was released there an immediate investigation soon followed by the FDA regarding all the access pork located inside the bill. Hopefully we will soon know what pork is safe for consumption and what pork should be considered waste

Here’s the short list of what was on McCain’s list yesterday, that McCain was reading from, Senator John McCain of Arizona, from the floor of the United States Senate. $277,000 for potato pest management in Wisconsin. I didn’t even know they grew potatoes in Wisconsin. What happened to you cheese heads? I’ve never seen a potato head.

They could be a potato head. Hey, let’s put a moustache on that guy. Not that little skinny one, the big one. $246,000 for bovine tuberculosis research in Michigan and Minnesota. I have a question. Bovine tuberculosis, is that overly large Midwestern gals, or is that bovine of the moo variety? I’m kidding. $522,000 for cranberry and blueberry disease and breeding in New Jersey. $500,000 for oyster safety in Florida. Every one of these, ladies and gentlemen, is unconstitutional. It is unnecessary. It is part of the addiction. It is part of the payoff. This is what your member of Congress does. All of them, save for maybe a handful, five, six, all of them do this. This is how the game is played. You go and you represent those who have paid for your campaign. And we can sit here and talk about Tea Parties from now until the end of the next millennium. And you’ll still have this to deal with until structural systemic changes are made. I’ll get into that. Don’t worry, we’re going to cover that today.

$349,000 for swine waste management in North Carolina. Yes, we must manage the pig poo. $413,000 for peanut research in Alabama. Can’t leave Mr. Planters out, now, can we. By the way, have you seen the commercial? He’s got a Christmas party to throw. We’re throwing the damn Planters Peanuts Christmas party. I wish the nutcracker would crack his head. $247,000 for virus-free wine grapes in Washington. $208,000 for beaver management in North Carolina. No laughing. No laughing, you two. Don’t laugh. No jokes. $94,000 for blackbird management in Louisiana. I didn’t even know we had blackbirds here in Louisiana. Did you know that?

$165,000 for maple syrup research in Vermont. What do you need to research the maple syrup for? You find a maple tree, you drill a hole in the damn thing, and you hang a bucket from it. How hard is this? What are you researching? Synthetic maple syrup? Oh, my goodness.

I would really rather not know the details. This is a partial list of the 6,488 porkulus succubus giveaway projects that are in the omnibus spending bill that the United States Senate is set to pass. This after the “historic election” of 2010. This after allegedly the voters spoke in 2010.
Well, if the voters spoke, and this becomes law, and Obama signs this, and the Congress tries to undo it, and Obama vetoes it, or it can’t get through the United States Senate, it will be business as usual, ladies and gentlemen. Nothing will have materially changed. We’ll be farther and farther in debt. It is just – it’s so damned depressing, it really is. I do not enjoy reading this, even though – that’s why I’m making fun of it, just to try to make the time go by without wanting to weep. $235,000 for noxious weed management in Nevada. $100,000 for the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage Visitor Center in New York. You people want an Edgar Allan Poe Cottage Visitor Center in New York, pay for it yourself. Have a collection. Have the local people put their money up to preserve Poe and to preserve his cottage. Good grief.

$300,000 for the Polynesian Voyaging Society in Hawaii. Polynesian Voyaging Society. I assume that that has something to do with the history of the Polynesians crossing the Pacific Ocean in these reeds, in these little boats made out of reeds. Any of you people remember that nutty Danish guy, what was his name, Thor Heyerdahl, I think. You remember that, back in the ‘70s? This guy came, well, I think we think the Polynesians, we think that the Polynesians crossed the ocean on reed crafts way back in the day, 8,000 years ago. And to prove it, he built a craft out of reeds and sailed, I think – I think he did an Atlantic route, though. I think he sailed from Norway or somewhere up there north of Great Britain to Newfoundland. I don’t remember. But I do remember his name is Thor Heyerdahl. Well, he’s going to get $300,000 to build a brand new reed raft.

$400,000 for solar parking canopies and plug-in electric stations in Kansas. What’s wrong with Kansas? You people are wrong with Kansas. Additionally, according to Senator McCain, the bill earmarks $727,000 to compensate ranchers in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan whenever endangered wolves eat their cattle. We must now pay for wolf abatement. As my colleagues know, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s grey wolf program is under intense scrutiny for wasting millions of taxpayer dollars every year to recover endangered wolves that are now overpopulating the West and Midwest. So we create the problem by protecting the stupid wolf, and then the wolf goes around and starts eating our food, and now all of a sudden we have to pay to get rid of the wolf. Oh, my gosh.
According to McCain, “This is the ninth omnibus appropriations bill we have considered in this body since 2000. That is shameful, and we should be embarrassed by the fact that we care so little about the people’s business that we continuously put off fulfilling our constitutional responsibilities until the very last minute.” And then McCain goes on to say that he could see that the results of the election were not heard, are not clear, and that the majority party hasn’t got it. Duh. Let me ask you people a question. What made anyone think that the majority party was going to “get it”? Even after they got it, that they were going to get it. Why would anyone even think that? These people are sick.

As I pointed out, this is an actual – you know, we want to spend some earmark money, why don’t we spend a couple of million dollars to study the congressional, the North Atlantic, Mid-Atlantic, Southwestern, Northwestern congressional spendthrift? Homo spendthriftus. How about that? Let’s find out what makes these people tick. Why do you have this disease? What is wrong with your brain? Is there a cure? “Chris, the cure is the ballot box.” Oh, yeah, look how well that’s working out for us.

Now keeping this in mind, back to my point....

How many of you have five-year spending plans? How many of you have a five-month spending plan? You can’t plan to spend things and spend money that has not occurred yet. Yet our federal masters inside Mordor on the Potomac – which, by the way, is being used on very popular blogs out there, and we’re glad to see it. You’re free to use it. You should give credit where you got it from, but you’re free to use it. They’re planning on – they can project out all the way to 2020 what they’re going to spend. How is, number one, how is that possible? And, number two, is that even advisable? Would you even advise someone to try to do that?

I suppose you could manage maybe one or two things that you know you’re going to have to pay. For example, you may know that you’re in the eighth year of a 30-year mortgage, and you’ve got 22 years left to pay. And provided you don’t have an adjustable rate mortgage, or an ARM, you may be able to say, okay, I can project out for the next 18 years that I’m going to have – or 22 years, this is what my note is going to be. I’m going to have to pay this. The only variable there would be homeowners insurance and property taxes. That would be the only thing that would change there if you don’t have an ARM. It’s locked in. I suppose you could plan spending out like that.

But the rest of it, do you know how much you’re going to spend on groceries even next month? You don’t know that. The price of eggs could go through the roof, and they are going to go through the roof. The price of bacon could go through the roof, and it is going to go through the roof. The price of an ear of corn could go through the roof. And it is going to go through the roof. So you don’t know how much you’re going to spend. But don’t worry, Congress has got this under control. We can project this stuff out through 2015.

This is just, you know, it fries my mind to even try and think about this stuff. And the fact that there are so many people out there that have invested their entire lives and their entire professional careers in trying to explain this, and in working to do this, is just mind-boggling to me. What do these people produce other than inaccurate predictions? We used to see these people in little covered wagons with brightly painted canvases on them at sideshows in little Old West towns. They’re out there selling snake oils, looking into crystal balls, rolling rune dice out on a carpet and what have you. But today, no, they work for the federal government, and they make millions. Ridiculous this is. Absolutely, patently ridiculous.

Again, this is so simple as if to be redundant!!!

I know what most of you are thinking out there.....

“Why, you, there you went again. The Republicans come out with a plan, they’re trying to deal with this problem, and you’re depressing people. You’re telling them not to go along with it. You’re just a hater who doesn`t want the republicans succeed....”

I’m telling them the truth as I see it from this chair. H.R. 5 is the bill, folks, which the House approved earlier this month. It already instructs the Budget Committee to publish budget allocations from 2011 to 2015. The resolution to be considered on Wednesday instructs the Budget Committee only to publish 2011 allocations. What does that mean to you? I don’t know what that means to you. AG, can you explain that to the listeners? Because I can’t. I don’t know what...

I don’t know what this means to anyone on earth unless you’re some wonky budget-crunching guy, like the Orszborg, Peter Orszag. This means nothing to the average tax – but I’ll tell you what it does mean to you. What it means is that what is being sucked out of your back pocket or your purse on a daily basis by that menacing monster, Mordor on the Potomac, Leviathan, what is being sucked out of the back of your – out of your back pocket is going to continue to be sucked out of your back pocket. That’s what it means. In other words, ladies and gentlemen, status quo. Nothing has changed. “But we’re going to have some new projections.” Screw you and your projections. Either get to the business of doing this or shut up and get out of the way because we’re going to send somebody there who will.

You know, who am I kidding? It doesn’t matter who we send there. We already know that the brand new members of the Tea Party have been infected by Leviathanitis....Once you have partaken of the water, you have become infected. You fall under the spell of, well, maybe these agencies and these programs aren’t so bad. Yes, yes, yes, I see the benefit of all of them now. This hallucination here of we’re going to cut – here, I’m going to read it to you. The full text of the new resolution reads as follows, ladies and gentlemen.

“Resolved, That, pursuant to section 3(b)(1) of H.R. 5, the Chair of the Committee on the Budget shall include in the Congressional Record an allocation contemplated by section 302(a) for the Committee on Appropriations for the remainder of fiscal year 2011 that assumes a transition to non-security spending at fiscal year 2008 levels.” What does that mean? Let me try and translate that for you. There’s a can sitting on the floor of the House of Representin’, and it’s called Leviathan’s federal budget disaster, looming federal budget disaster. 218 of us are going to take turns walking up to that joker and kicking it as far as we can. By the time we’re done, we’ll probably have the thing kicked into the Potomac River. How far is the Potomac from the Mordor Capitol Dome? Could 435 guys taking turns kicking this thing, if they had, let’s say, Olindo Mare’s leg, could they get that thing to the Potomac River.....

The point I`m trying to make here is that nothing is going to change and if we think the past elections are going to help, you are just fooling yourself!!

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.
