REAGAN 1983: I know that all of you want peace, and so do I. I know, too, that many of you seriously believe that a nuclear freeze would further the cause of peace. But a freeze now would make us less, not more secure — and would raise, not reduce, the risks of war.
When the Government says that they want to keep something open and free, that means just the opposite usually. Now they are working on what is called the Internet Freedom Preservation Act, which is anything but an act to preserve freedom. You have to know when the government talks about freedom, you had better grab your wallets and head for the fox holes, because they mean anything but freedom…..as in this internet bill. Here is what is going on.
The FCC tried to get this Internet Freedom Preservation Act passed, which would take any action to insure consumers are protected on the internet. The Court of Appeals shot them down. They were told that they do not have the authority to regulate broadband services.
Broadband internet regulation is a little bit like the Fairness Doctrine. Keeping them open and free is a buzz word by the liberals for a great big whopper of a lie, which really means, not saving your freedoms, but controlling them. And if that wasn’t enough, now Obama is comparing himself to Reagan!
To see how stupid this comparison is, you have to remember Reagan. In 1983, he was giving a speech on the nuclear issue, and here is what he said in his Address to the Nation, on March 23, 1983:
REAGAN 1983: Since the dawn of the atomic age, we’ve sought to reduce the risk of war by maintaining a strong deterrent and by seeking genuine arms control. Deterrence means simply this: Making sure any adversary who thinks about attacking the United States or our allies or our vital interests concludes that the risks to him outweigh any potential gains. Once he understands that, he won’t attack. We maintain the peace through our strength. Weakness only invites aggression. This strategy of deterrence has not changed. It still works.
Obama comparing himself to Reagan on the nuclear issue is laughable at the best, and “for crying out loud insane” on the bad side. You just read how Reagan thinks of the issue of strength and nuclear weapons…..Obama? He says that we will never use nuclear power, even if attacked with non conventional weapons! And he has the audacity to compare himself to Reagan? Give me a break! Reagan was too good to be compared to Obama in any way. And as Rush said today about it:
RUSH: And we’re in the process of changing it. We’re getting rid of our defenses, we’re paring them back, and yet they want to say that Obama is doing exactly what Reagan did? It couldn’t be further apart. Here’s more from the same national address, March 23rd, 1983, from the White House.
Here is that more that Rush was talking about……
REAGAN 1983: I know that all of you want peace, and so do I. I know, too, that many of you seriously believe that a nuclear freeze would further the cause of peace. But a freeze now would make us less, not more secure — and would raise, not reduce, the risks of war. It would be largely unverifiable and would seriously undercut our negotiations on arms reduction. It would reward the Soviets for their massive military buildup while preventing us from modernizing our aging and increasingly vulnerable forces. With their present margin of superiority, why should they agree to arms reductions knowing that we were prohibited from catching up?
My friends, the same applies now, as it did then. What Reagan said still holds true. Obama is not doing what Reagan did, he is doing just the opposite. He is making our enemies think we WILL NOT use our nuclear weapons if attacked. He is making our enemies think that they are on a stronger footing than we are. Obama is taking away the advantage that we have by letting them know that we will not under any circumstances use our arsenal. Our Generals everywhere are cringing because of that. They know, that Obama is taking our advantage away. Our troops are cringing because of that.
So, Obama like Reagan? He is wandering around in the giggle weeds again and acting like the fool that he is.
