Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have. The course of history shows us that as a government grows, liberty decreases.
With this quote, it seems that Jefferson was talking about today. Today we have a government growing with leaps and bounds, led by a bunch of Liberal politicians who cannot seem to get enough of the power they have, so they strive with every breath, to get more and more from the American people. And the people are sick of it.
With every opening of the current crop of leaders’ mouths, comes more idiocy everyday, that makes me wonder why, the American people have let them get this kind of power. Chris Matthews on Hardball the other night, talking to Richard Trumka showed exactly what I mean. They had this exchange about the rescue of the Chilean miners, and the Tea Partiers. This is insanely delusional, to say the least. It’s totally deranged, and it makes no sense whatsoever. Here is what they said:
MATTHEWS: The message coming out of the Tea Party people — and a lot of them are good people — is “every man for himself,” basically. No more taxes, no more government, no more everything, no more safety net, no more health care for everybody. Everybody just get out there, make your buck, save it, screw the government, move on. Right?
TRUMKA: (whispering) Yeah.
MATTHEWS: You know, these people, if they were every man for himself out in that mine, they wouldn’t-a gotten out.
TRUMKA: (whispering) That’s exactly right.
MATTHEWS: They woulda been killing each other after about two days.
If I could interject a point here, Matthews is wrong….as USUAL. He always seems to look at the world through the “rose colored lens'” of liberalism, where everything different could be better, if and only if, it was changed to fit their template. What they don’t get is, the Tea Party People, as they put us, are really just true patriots of this country who see the way that she is being led, and know, that without a doubt, if the direction isn’t changed, this country will cease to exist as it was formed for. And that is for the liberty and freedom of the everyday people. Who have a government that is not in charge of them….but helps them. But, what we have today is a government that is bigger everyday, ruling over the people. Kind of like the government that caused the people to rebel in the first place that started this great nation.
Jefferson was right. And anyone, who has lived as long as I have can see just that happening as the years went by. I have seen freedom after freedom taken away from the people in the name of “making things easier”, or in the name of “making things fair.”
We now have a president, who figures that the rich need to pay more in taxes, even though they now pay the lion’s share of taxes, just to make it fair. To that I say to Obama, all taxing the Rich more will do, is make them feel like they are being UNFAIRLY taxed, which in turn will get rid of their incentive to make more money. And when that happens my dear boy, they will get rid of workers who work for them and stop working themselves. They don’t have to work for a living. They are rich. Can’t you get it through your thick skull Obama, that they are the ones who help drive the economy with the ability to hire workers. You don’t see poor people doing that do you?
But that isn’t the only problem with the way that Obama is leading this nation. Here, from Dakota Voice is the rest of the story.
Even in the face of Waterloo-like polls for the Democrats, President Barack Obama is still having trouble getting a grip on reality.
President Obama reveals in a magazine article that he is weighing what to do if Republicans win the House majority next month, and has come up with a novel approach: Make the GOP work with him.
Uh, no, Mr. President. You have it backwards. You will have to learn to work with Republicans.
(And newly elected Republicans might as well get rid of spineless rubber stamps like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell right at the start, to ensure Obama knows he has to work with Republicans and not the other way around.)
Make the GOP work for you? HAAA HAAA HAAAA! It is to laugh. It is true, that there are republicans who are not really republicans, you know, the RINOS, who will do the same things that you libs do….swing with the emotion….though the RINOs do it more.
Obama is really delusional to think that after all the damage he has done to this nation with his policies, that anyone with a brain would work with him. He is really delusional to think that true Americans who love this country would want to help him do more damage to it. To that, I have to laugh again. And believe me, it isn’t a happy laugh. It is a nervous one.
Yesterday, I went to the 10/15/2010 Tea Party here in Indianapolis, *actually Plainfield*, and came away with a lot of good information. Stuff like this:
If you have children who do not like to mind, or want to do things their way, tell them, that if they like their freedoms, that they had better hope that this election works for the Conservatives. Because the government in place right now has taking freedoms away from the people a major priority in their lives. If it was up to them, they would take our freedoms to live in our own homes away from us. If that happens, WE would have no say in what WE would do at home. The government would tell US when to do the dishes. When to clean the house. What temperature to keep OUR houses at. What television shows to watch. You would have no say in the matter. Is that what you want my friends? I know it isn’t what I want.
I value my freedoms. I value America as she was founded. I value the kind of life America offers for me to achieve. I value what America has to offer my children, when they grow up. I do not believe the Constitution is wrong, as most liberals do. I believe in God, Country and Family. I believe that the United States has helped the world be a better place to live, not the other way around. I believe the United States is a force of good in this world because the American people would rather help someone in trouble, than kill them. Even when the people dislike us.
This coming election, in a few weeks, could be the start of this nation getting back on track…..or it could be the next step in the finish of this nation as the world knows her.
If you are one who believes this nation is bad, then answer this question. If this nation was so bad, why is it, when something bad happens around the world, that the world turns to us for help?
When the disaster in Chile happened, who offered the help? It was the free nations of the world. It was the citizens of the United States. A small company in Ohio made the drill bit that drilled into the mine to save those men. The owner came from Afghanistan, from a job his company was doing there, to help. NASA helped with the design of the capsule that got the men out. They also helped by supplying nutrients to the miners so they wouldn’t get sick. And thank God the president of Chile wasn’t like Obama, or there would have been moratoriums against mining companies, to cease operations until something could be come up with so this would never happen again. There would have been law suits. There would have been refusals of help from other nations. And the miners would have most likely died in the process.
But, the President of Chile accepted the help when it was offered, and then, he got out of their way so that the work to save the miners could be done and done well. Capitalism worked there. Capitalism was the driving force that helped it work out well. Surely we aren’t so dumb as to put the leaders who would ruin this nation and her ability to help others at risk, back into office. I patiently await the wisdom of the American people on November 2nd, 2010. The first step to taking this country back. Vote your conscience and your heart. Vote for America.
God Bless America, her troops, her allies and her people
