This is the First Anniversary of my Blog.
Yikes what a year.
These were the first real words I wrote a year ago:
We The People, we need to take back the responsibility for our choices and to hold those politicians accountable for theirs. They serve us, it’s not the other way around.
But it does seem that in the last 20+ years that has been turned on it’s head.
“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country. ”
–President John F. Kennedy Jan 20th, 1961
We are long way from there now aren’t we!
These days it seems people are more interested in what government can do for them. The initiative and the drive to succeed is superseded by the want to have someone else do it for you or at the very least get someone else to pay for it (even though that in and of itself is an illusion).
The old joke of “Hi, we’re from the government and we are here to help you…” which would have sticken fear in a bygone era now seems to be what people want.
This sad state of narcissism is very troubling.
And a year later, that hasn’t changed. The Tea Party movement has gotten stronger. Congress even less popular. The Economy isn’t any better and likely is going towards a double-dip recession because the policies of Keynesian economics has failed miserably. But the Democrats fail to notice and the Media covers it up.
Government Health Care “surprises” from the now Law continue to pop up like evil gophers because the people passing the bills never read them.
Just this weekend, According to Sen. Baucus, the idea of him reading a bill allocating nearly $1 trillion of federal funds is “a waste of time:”
And he’s the one who “wrote” the Senate version!
“I don’t think you want me to waste my time to read every page of the health care bill. You know why? It’s statutory language,” Baucus said. “We hire experts.”
Aka staffers, and LOBBYISTS!
Baucus said. “Mark my words, several years from now you’re going to look back and say, ‘eh, maybe it isn’t so bad.’”(Washington Examiner)
So they pass bills that crush our freedoms, and they don’t even read them! And when you object they are condescending and tone deaf!
In the last year that has not changed.
But don’t tell that to the Media or Obama or Congress. They are tone deaf too.
There are calls for a second stimulus again!
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again the exact same way expecting the result to be different.
The Democrats are campaigning like its 2008.
It’s all George Bush’s Fault. The Party of No. Stimulus. and more Spending.
Not much has changed.
Except the people are angrier than a year ago.
And we spent another 1.3 Trillion more than we had.
The national debt is now a couple of Trillion dollars farther down the toilet than last year.
Government has no money unless it prints more or taxes more. It must get it from thin air or from you. Period. QED.
The Democrats still want to pass the Global warming farce, called Cap & Trade, but may do it by stealth means through the EPA.
They can’t get real amnesty, so they get quasi-Amnesty by ignoring as many illegals as they can and dismissing as many cases of illegals caught as they can.
They said that Arizona is a Human Rights Abuser and should be put down, by the likes of Cuba.
Unemployment is higher and more persistent.
Higher taxes loom even larger.
Debt is even more expansive.
Uncertainty is the #1 fear. Uncertainty as to what the Democrats will do next.
I ended that blog with:
The Declaration of Dependence
We the Congress of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Dicatorship, establish Injustice, insecure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense of The Congress, promote the general Welfare of The Congress, and secure the Blessings of Total Power to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Dictatorship for the United Socialist States of North America.
Yes, admitting to bad choices is tough. Yes, it can be messy. But the adage of what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger is still true and WE THE PEOPLE need to stand up and assert our rights and not abdicate them for the simpler, less stressful,less time consuming, less embarrassing and ultimately narcissistic way we have today.
And that is even more true now, a year later.
And November 2nd is the turning point.
“Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.”
John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
“Fear is the foundation of most governments; but it is so sordid and brutal a passion, and renders men in whose breasts it predominates so stupid and miserable, that Americans will not be likely to approve of any political institution which is founded on it.”
John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
“If men through fear, fraud or mistake, should in terms renounce and give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the great end of society, would absolutely vacate such renunciation; the right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of Man to alienate this gift, and voluntarily become a slave.”
Now, it’s your turn to speak. Don’t expect the Liberal Ministry of Truth Media to speak for you. They won’t.
You can see November from here. And it has to be for We The People.
Or else, WE will just fade away…..
