I urge all to get on the phone or email and let your congressman and senators know that you disagree with this tax-and-spend our way out of debt while creating the greatest boondoggle (Obamacare) in world history. We are witnessing history before our very eyes. While we scream and yell and pull our hair out, our representatives are voting to bankrupt us all. They care more about party politics than the very survival of the republic that got them there in the first place. They'd rather be rulers of a failed nation than give up the lobbyist gravy that they've become addicted to.
What's even more ridiculous: businesses, and business organizations, that would thrive (and create more jobs) with less government, give money and support to politicians who have an opposite attitude - because these companies want to be on the winning side. They figure they can better lobby for what they want if they have a stake as benefactor to the politician. Again, principles go out the window.
It works in the short term, but eventually the government gains control over the company (socialism). See anything familiar here?
It's a shame that the Libertarian and Constitution parties haven't been able to get traction.
"MAYBE it is because they are worried about their reelection chances" That's right. Unfortunately, there may not be enough of those to stop the train. But we can always hope - AND WRITE OR CALL OUR REPRESENTATIVES EVERY DAY, LETTING OUR VOICES BE HEARD.
1- World Bank
2- World Health Organization
3- World Trade Organization
4- Codex in EU being pushed our way via WTO
5- EU - grand experiment in getting many countries under the control of one unelected bureaucracy (if Hitler had only known it could be this easy)
The interesting part: how many dictatorships are paying into or taking part in the above organizations? They're not idiots like us. When N. Korea and Iran buy into One World Order, it'll be when they are running the show.
1- Their website includes the statement, "commercially available within the next few years." How many are a few?
2- Is the technology already proven to be cost competitive, as they also say on their website? Is this with or without taxpayer subsidies?
Schumer Pushes Amnesty Bill by Labor Day, Despite the Objections of the American People
Last week, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, declared that he expects to have a new amnesty bill ready by Labor Day. (The Associated Press, July 8, 2009). This announcement came on the heels of a report released by an Independent Task Force of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) (The Washington Post, July 9, 2009), co-chaired by former Florida governor Jeb Bush and former Clinton White House chief of staff Thomas McLarty. The Task Force concluded that an amnesty program "is necessary and warranted for many illegal immigrants living in the United States." (Council on Foreign Relations Independent Task Force Report No.63, July 8, 2009).
We're the only country in the world that gives automatic citizenship to a baby born of an illegal immigrant. Now, as a practical matter, we're going to give citizenship to the parents as well. They're already eligible for food stamps, health care... I'm about ready to move to New Zealand and give them the whole country! If it weren't too far from the grand kids, I'd have already gone!
