This is sick! This President can go around and play golf every day and jet his family all around the world for BS vacations that most middle income families can only dream of… But then turns around and gives the very men and women that protect this country and give him those rides to his over priced vacations less then a 2% pay increase while everything else in the country is going up in price! Not since Carter has the service members being paid so much under the poverty level and yet asked to go fight in 2 wars and now possibly a third war while providing less equipment to do the fighting…

What is happening in this country when a very conservative like me actually agrees with a left winger like President Carter. Granted we were never a democratic country in the founding but a Federal Republic. This means that we never voted for anything more than a portion of the federal government. Yes I know what many of you have been taught in school that we were a true democratic government where you voted for every position in government and the ones with the popular vote were elected. Well the truth is that the people only voted for the House, hence the term the “People’s House”. The senate was appointed by the state legislature and governor until the Constitution was changed in the 1920′s. This is where the states lost their power against the federal government, and most of their abilities to use the 10th Amendment. And as for voting for the President goes, we have never had more of a vote than to hope that the elector college would vote according to our popular vote. There has been at least 2 times where the elector vote went against the popular vote, and I don’t mean the Bush v. Gore election either.

Does this surprise anyone?
Well it doesn’t surprise me in the least. This was part of why I didn’t want or believe the Patriot Act should have ever been passed. It went against everything that we stood for as Americans and yet few people actually read the bill and just accepted that their so called representatives would look out for them. But sorry to tell hose of you that think those men in Washington DC are going to protect you from bad laws when you sit on you comfy couches watching glorified actors on TV… Well guess again.
This goes for both liberal and conservative think people that sit back on their butt and believe their government will protect them… Get of your butts and research, study, and get involved in what those you elect are doing! Sure not all elected officials are bad and many are true Patriots… But even some that I used to support have went south. Just take the House Majority Whip for example, I used to think he would stand on his own and even go against the party line, but not anymore, he follows the Speakers lead almost every step of the way.
To use a quote from JFK, “Ask not what your country and do for you, But what you can do for your country…”
That doesn’t just mean to vote, to give to charity, or to join the military or civil service. No it meant to get involved and help lead the country to the greatness of the Founders. To pay attention to the government, watch how the laws are being made and keep the Congress and President within their checks and balances.
So why is it any surprise to anyone that the government is now so big that they believe they can walk all over the Constitution . The very Constitution that many have died to protect and to have even have a chance to write. The Founder warned us when they wrote the Constitution to be wary of those we elect. They know as all of us should know from history, to keep the power of the government at bay we the people must be informed, educated, and involved otherwise they can change and pass laws that take that power away from you.
Now if you have read the articles I posted in this blog you should see that Obama is defending his position by stating that these trespasses are justified to protect the country from terrorist. He is basically saying that we should give up our Constitutional Rights in order to be secure… Well that goes against the very quotes of the Founders!
“Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.” Benjamin Franklin
“The strictest law sometimes becomes the severest injustice.”
“Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.”
“Fear is the foundation of most governments.”
“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
“A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.”
They knew that if we allowed the government to become ever so powerful that they would start to create laws that would remove our rights and give the government more power to rule by. They knew as Benjamin Franklin stated in the first quote, if we allow the government the power to secure us without being kept in check, we would slowly accept less and less freedom to be more secure. Just look at the things currently on the plate of Congress and you can see how the current President and Congress want to protect you against almost anything and everything that we used to enjoy freely. Gun Control, Healthcare, Privacy, Freedom or Press, and etc…
Get involved, educate yourself to both the history of our country and of the world government, educate yourself to the current government from other sources than ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSN, and yes, even Fox News…

News Story: Czar: ‘Spread the wealth! Change the whole system’:
Mr. Obama has some really scary people around him and keep putting them into high places. The only thing all of them seem to have in common is to model the US into a communist country. We are too dumb to rule ourselves and they believe they have the answer to everything… Yep! Government runs the country.
So what happens to those that he disagrees with? Well we have already been called domestic extreme right terrorist because we protest their views and challenge them to explain their directions. Then when they are caught by some miracle called a few voter as lobbyist planted in the town hall meetings, they then start to ask for IDs to be seen for the hard questions. Sure that’s what we want, a bunch of politicians filtering out the opposition from getting in the way. I guess they would have been OK today with Dr. King or Rosa Parks getting watered down by fire hoses and being forced to leave places for voicing their opinions… Oh wait, they forget that it wasn’t right then and it still isn’t right now.
