Your RIGHT to Health Insurance

Democrat leadership in Congress and Leftists among us believe, "Health Care is a right".
They believe in a multitude of Constitutionally protected rights that simply are not. They believe in a right to food, a right to housing, a right to a job, and a right to transportation to and from that job. They assert that we have a right to love and a right to travel.They even believe in a right to an abortion paid for by those who oppose abortion on demand. I agree we have those rights (all but the last)... so go get them for yourself! Those rights are natural rights given by God whether you believe in him or not! They are akin to the right to breathe and the right to speak. They are born from the same law giver who gave our hearts the right to beat and our eyes the right to blink. They were NOT given to us by Congress!
These rights are common to all men (except those who live in oppression) and are not granted by any man so that man may take them back. Yet when the Left uses legislative power to establish any of those rights they then give arbitrary control over said rights to the government. Do you think this new government take over of the Health Insurance industry will some how give you control over your 'Right' to health care? They will tell you which plans you must have, they will reduce Medicare pay to doctors, so-as to force doctors to drop more Medicare clients and force them on to the government plan too. They will now send 18,000 new IRS agents out to stalk and fine businesses and individuals (that's you) thousands of dollars for not having complied with their mandate. Does this sound like you are in control?

The US Constitution does not give Congress the right to force you to buy insurance! They can't force you to buy a car either, especially GM or Chrysler. If (when) they take over the candy bar industry they can't force you to buy a candy bar either, much less force you to buy THEIR candy bar. They claim that under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution they have the right to regulate insurance. In the 'Powers of Congress' section Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 of the Constitution it is stated plainly, "[The Congress shall have power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes;". There is NO way to interpret that to mean Congress can force you and I to purchase Government approved and soon government owned health Insurance. I'm sorry but it just does not fly! The clause gives Congress power to regulate 'industry' not force participation in it. (e.g.) Congress can regulate the sale of cows between states, they can (and do) overtax cattle ranchers and dealers when they trade across state lines but they can't tax me for not selling cattle! Nor can they penalize me for not buying insurance based on a right that doesn't exist! Besides, if I can't buy insurance accross state lines how can they count it as being interstate commerce??
What was done on Sunday was a rape of our Constitution; an all out assault on our liberty. Just another giant leap toward anarchy that leads to tyranny. Weaker men may buckle under this but we will not! I will join with you my fellow American. Together we will wrest the reins back from this government that seeks to rule us. We will not submit as this great Republic is strangled by a tyrannical government.
At the time of my writing this, 12 state Attorneys General (such as Texas' Gregg Abbott) have drafted suits to challenge the constitutionality of this bill. Hundreds of lawsuits have been filed and people are waking up around the country. Hopefully we can kill this thing before they can hit us with the bulk of taxes, fines and penalties set to begin immediately, while benefits (so called) don't kick in until 2014. When we are done defeating the bill we will begin voting out these liars and thieves! We must return the government to it's rightful place of representation rather than dictation. Soon we will reclaim control of our money, health care, our family and our dignity!

The 315 Year Lie!

The NYTimes released a story last week that seemed to pass with little notice. It seems the IPCC has made a small error in it's reporting. Below is an excerpt from the article.

(link to full NYTimes article)
Leaders of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change apologized yesterday for making a "poorly substantiated" claim that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035.
....the IPCC report relied on news accounts that appear to misquote a scientific paper that estimated the glaciers could disappear by 2350, not 2035.

"The damage was that IPCC had, or I think still has, such a stellar reputation that people view it as an authority -- as indeed they should -- and so they see a bullet that says Himalayan glaciers will disappear by 2035 and they take that as a fact," said, Arizona Prof. Jeffrey Kargel

Just so you know, I don't consider the IPCC an authority. I consider them incompetent fools who use fear mongering tactics to frighten us into making life altering changes both to our personal lives and our economy, transportation, food, education and employment. They work daily to steal our sovereignty and bring our citizens under the rule of a European based world governing body. So I have a bit of a problem saying that the IPCC is an authority on anything more than pure anti-Capitalist Marxism.

The problem here is not that they made a typo, the issue here is that a group of vipers who use lies of horror to force us into supporting their baleful agenda, tricked the world into thinking the melting was so rapid that it would be gone in 25 yrs. If you believe the left wing rhetoric passed along by the Mainstream media you will no doubt panic and believe or do what ever you can to stop it. However the truth is that their projections were off by 315 yrs. Not only does this make things a little less urgent but it also gives far less credence to their prediction.
e.g.: What if the local weather-man came on the news tonight and said that a huge storm with flash floods and tornados were expected on Saturday?! Would you feel a bit squeezed for time getting ready? Of course. However, what if the same weather-man warned you that the same terrible storm was imminent in 8 months?! Are you still as freaked out? Do you feel panicked? No. Of course you don't. You don't so readily believe him either. Most weather-men can't predict a storm two days away with any true accuracy so why would you believe he can tell what will happen in 8 months? I know climate predictions are different from meteorological predictions but the analogy still fits.

Leftists love to call me and others like me 'anti-Science' or 'Science Deniers'. Yet they denied science when DDT was saving lives around the world and they ignored the science and banned it anyway, resulting in the Malarial deaths of hundreds of millions of people. They were anti Science when they said heterosexual AIDS would sweep the nation and used similar scare tactics to force people into not only giving money but changing their opinions about social degradation and the natural abnormality of intravenous drug abuse and homosexuality. The left was anti science when they said we came from apes who originated in pond scum instead of supporting evidence that we are a unique being with direct ties to our creator. They are the Science Deniers when they say that man produced CO2 emissions caused the climate to warm. Then when 10 years of steady cooling occurred they said the interregnal, life sustaining ingredient to our Earth, 'CO2', was causing cooling also; so they re-named it, 'Climate Change'. And finally when we point out that life is sacred and should be protected at all stages in life they deny science and say the fetus is not a person and the old woman does not have an acceptable quality of life and both may be thrown away at the whim or convenience of others. So remember the next time a long haired smelly hippie crawls out of his 'flower power' van and says 'You' are anti Science or that you deny science.... it's ok to give him a swift kick to the groin.

Grover Cleveland on socialist welfare

A quote from a Democrat President before Dems were overthrown by socialist doctrine.....
Grover Cleveland:
"I feel obliged to withhold my approval of the plan as purposed by this bill, to indulge a benevolent and charitable sentiment through the approriations of public funds for that purpose. I can find NO warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and the duty of the General Government ought to extend to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit. A prevalent tendency to disregard the limited mission of this power and duty should I think, be steadfastly resisted, to the end that the lesson should be constantly enforced that though the people support the Government the government should not support the people...The friendliness and charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their fellow-citizens in misfortune. This has been repeatedly and quite lately demonstrated. Federal aid in such cases encourages the
expectation of parental care on the part of the Government and weakens the sturdiness of our national character, while it prevents the indulgence among our people of that kindly sentiment and conduct which strengthens the bonds of a common brotherhood."

Big Tent Republicans

There has been a lot of talk lately about the Republican need for a 'Big Tent'. What they mean is that if the Republicans want to win they have to do as Reagan did and win the moderate vote. An elusive task for the McCain-Palin campaign. Logic would then lead one to believe the only way we can win is to pacify and appease those who teeter on the fence. But I have another idea, perhaps a less popular idea but I am not dissuaded.

Big tent politics wins elections, Obama more than proved that. However, I believe it is as useless to the moral fiber and direction of this nation as chocolate cake is for the health of our bodies. Sure it's filling but its nutritionally vapid and ends up rotting your teeth. If a party such as the GOP begins to be all inclusive they become weak in the face of legislative and judicial evils. Conservatives have been the majority in the Republican party for many decades. It is our party! If we decide that our principals mean nothing and political power means everything we become as venomous as the Democrats. We must win people to the Republican party by winning them over to Conservatism not watering down Conservatism.

What if your local church decided that to boost revenue they would now begin supporting the strip bar across town and every Sunday during offering instead of heavenly voices from the choir, strippers do a live show. Hey, have you seen the kind of money guys spend at these bars? The church could be rolling in cash! Then they could denounce the first books of the Bible so evolutionists would join. The Main Stream media would come and film it and Obama would join as soon as we made Rev. Jeremiah Wright our new pastor. Yes the coffers would grow but the message and the goal would be lost. Christ threw out the gamblers and bookies! The church has a duty to grow by winning hearts and minds through teaching God's word. Conservatives must also grow the Republican party by winning hearts and minds! They too must get out there and take the word of Capitalism and Liberty to the public. We must grow our party as we grow our churches, one convert at a time. So quit sitting there in the pews nodding your head and saying 'Amen!' every few seconds, get out there and preach the virtues of Conservatism. Teach people that a less intrusive government, states rights and individual Liberty is better than tyranny and serfdom offered by the Left!
We don't need a bigger tent, we need a knowledgeable public that recognizes tyranny and bands together to defeat it.

Obama to cede American Sovereignty

America:Our last best hope

He is the British Benjamin Franklin of our time. Instead of dispatching him to France as revolutionary America did; today's Great Britton has sent 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley (Lord) Christopher Monkton to rally America to the cause of defending freedom!Please Watch the video and/or read the transcript below.


At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it, because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regime from the European Union will rubber stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it.

I read that treaty. And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfication of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.

How many of you think that the word “election” or “democracy” or “vote” or “ballot” occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once. So, at last, the communists who piled out of the Berlin Wall and into the environmental movement, who took over Greenpeace so that my friends who funded it left within a year, because [the communists] captured it – Now the apotheosis as at hand. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world. You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view. He’s going to sign it. He’ll sign anything. He’s a Nobel Peace Prize [winner]; of course he’ll sign it.

And the trouble is this; if that treaty is signed, if your Constitution says that it takes precedence over your Constitution (sic), and you can’t resign from that treaty unless you get agreement from all the other state parties – And because you’ll be the biggest paying country, they’re not going to let you out of it.So, thank you, America. You were the beacon of freedom to the world. It is a privilege merely to stand on this soil of freedom while it is still free. But, in the next few weeks, unless you stop it, your president will sign your freedom, your democracy, and your humanity away forever. And neither you nor any subsequent government you may elect will have any power whatsoever to take it back. That is how serious it is. I’ve read the treaty. I’ve seen this stuff about [world] government and climate debt and enforcement. They are going to do this to you whether you like it or not.

But I think it is here, here in your great nation, which I so love and I so admire – it is here that perhaps, at this eleventh hour, at the fifty-ninth minute and fifty-ninth second, you will rise up and you will stop your president from signing that dreadful treaty, that purposeless treaty. For there is no problem with climate and, even if there were, an economic treaty does nothing to [help] it.

So I end by saying to you the words that Winston Churchill addressed to your president in the darkest hour before the dawn of freedom in the Second World War. He quoted from your great poet Longfellow:

Sail on, O Ship of State!

Sail on, O Union, strong and great!

Humanity with all its fears,

With all the hopes of future years,

Is hanging breathless on thy fate.

1961 Reagan speaks out against Socialized Medicine!

On the 1961 Operation Coffee Cup Campaign, Ronald Reagan Speaks out against Socialized Medicine.
