When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
-From the beginning of the Declaration of Independence-
It is almost like Benjamin Franklin was looking at today when he said, “We have a republic, for as long as we can keep it.” It is true, we have a republic, but, our government, especially over the last few years has done everything it can to destroy that republic.
People today are becoming more and more in tune with what Obama and the left *and some who say they are on the right* are doing to this nation and how gloomy our future is beginning to look.
Even the media is in on this destruction with their headlines, that mislead and misinform. Like today for instance, from the Daily Beast, in an article written by Daniel Stone, the headline misleads with this:
Analysis: U.S. credit downgrade ‘inevitable’
Only seven days stand between the U.S. and the effects of a credit default. But a downgrade of the nation’s stellar AAA credit rating seems a lot more likely, and a lot sooner.
To me, “a lot more likely, and a lot sooner….” is not inevitable. This whole scare mongering story of the debt limit is nothing but that. It is not “inevitable” if the debt limit is not raised. The reason that it is even being considered, *the credit downgrade that is* is because the American government is out of control with their spending, and balancing the budget, while lowering taxes to get more revenue coming in is probably the most positive thing the government can do, but, all Obama is talking about is raising taxes, and raising the debt limit. Neither has to be done.
If the debt limit isn’t raised, the government will NOT default. The money is there to take care of our bills and make our payments. The only thing that will happen is the government will have to tighten their belts and live within their means, like Obama is saying we all must do. Of course when he says that, he means you and me. NOT HIM. He wants to continue on with his insane spending, because I think he has gotten addicted to it. So, he talks of “shared sacrifice”, when none of that sacrifice is coming from him and the left.
Right now, we have the Republicans standing up against this “status quo” of the government and spending. They know what they were put there for, and they are standing firm in doing what they are there for. No tax hike. Lowering government spending. And if the debt limit is raised, which probably will happen because no one is telling the truth about what will happen if it isn’t, then the spending cuts have to equal at least as much as the debt limit raise. Amen to them.
The thing that pisses this American off, is Obama rallying against the Republicans for doing the right things, when he insists on tax increases, and hasn’t done what he has been constitutionally mandated to do. Him and the democrats that is…..
The democrat’s haven’t done a budget in two years. The reason is, they didn’t want the American people to know what they were about to do to us.
But now we know. Most of us anyway. There are still those that are supporting Obama, no matter what he is doing to our nation.
But the time has come for the media to do what they are supposed to be doing. Telling the truth when reporting the news. Not doing things like putting the headline like the one I put above, and then in the story, have nothing saying that is true. Come on media. Stop lying like Obama is. We the people, want the truth. Not a spin of it like we are getting from both the politicians in Washington, and the media.
And this lie that Obama is telling about Social Security checks not going out if the debt limit isn’t raised is just that…..a flat out lie. The money for Social Security checks has NOTHING to do with the debt limit. There is a fund of more than a billion that is there in case of Social Security not having the money for the checks. They can get it from there. Obama is just lying to the people he says he is working for. My mom included.
You republicans were put into Washington in the last election not to compromise with a beaten party, but to do what the people wanted you to do. And that is fix the problem. We know it won’t happen all at once, but compromising isn’t to be a part of this whole thing. We have compromised too much. It’s the democrats turn now to compromise with us. They lost, we won, as Obama said after the election that put him into the White House…..Elections have consequences.
We need to start acting like winners, and not losers, or we will become losers again, real soon.
We have to remember here, that 50 years ago, the amount of income from taxes, that ran the government was about 2%. It is now close to or over 25%! Right now, because of what the house is doing, is the first time in 50 years that the foot is off the gas pedal for government growth. It hasn’t slowed down yet, and the brakes haven’t been applied to it, but the foot is now off the gas pedal. That is a start. Don’t let this start be stopped before it can do us any good.
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans. And Bless us to start using more common sense.
