The Constitution is Not Dead (But it Isn’t Living Either)

October 14, 2011 at 3:23 pm

The United States – often recognized as a beacon of freedom to the world, though perhaps more so in the past than in the present.  The original colonists came here seeking a fresh start, a land of unrivaled opportunity, and a reprieve from the oppression of the British Crown.  Immigrants in more recent times come for similar reasons.  They come to escape oppression, to pursue new opportunity, to endeavor to better themselves and their families by taking advantage of the freedoms we here take for granted.  The ultimate reason is the freedom to determine one’s own destiny.  At one time, this was the single most appealing feature of the land of Lady Liberty to others around the world.  Slowly, the United States is slipping from its previous grandeur.  As the citizens sit back and allow themselves to be lulled into oblivion by mind-melting television shows and the latest in fashion, football or celebrity gossip the freedom and liberty that we take for granted is being stripped away.  Like an onion, each layer is slowly removed and eventually, it will be gone entirely.  With each layer compromised come the stinging tears of those who witness the degradation.  We are not yet past […]




The Great Debt Ceiling Crisis of 2011

August 4, 2011 at 5:54 pm

The saga of the Great Debt Ceiling Crisis of 2011 came to a disappointing end Tuesday when President Obama signed into law the lousy “compromise” that was sent to him by Congress.  Let us look back on the events that brought us to the pathetic end of the over-hyped debt ceiling “crisis”. The President addressed the nation on Monday July 25, in the hope of frightening the American people into a blind, thoughtless frenzy that would have them pressure their respective members of Congress into a “compromise”.  The days following his speech brought the introduction of several plans by various leaders in Washington DC.  The primary of those being one from House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) – who incidentally filibustered his own bill for more than 20 hours. In the President’s speech Monday he did his very best to explain the problem to the American people.  He did so by: Demonizing tax cuts as an expense to the government – as if the money belongs to the government, and the government is being inconvenienced in allowing you to have it, as their gift to you.  This money belongs to you!  The government has […]




Fed Audit Reveals $16 Trillion in Secret Loans

July 23, 2011 at 1:04 pm

On Thursday Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) posted the results of a Government Accountability Office audit of the Federal Reserve on his Congressional website.  The audit was conducted by order of an amendment that Sen. Sanders had added to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act which was passed a year ago this week.  The results of the audit should be of little surprise to opponents of the Federal Reserve as they only confirm long-held suspicions of the Fed’s surreptitious dealings. The 266 page report released by the Government Accountability Office identified a number of serious concerns regarding the Fed.  It outlines $16 trillion in secret loans made by the Federal Reserve to domestic and foreign corporations, as well as foreign banks.  To put this into prospective, the current national debt of the United States is around $14.5 trillion.  Sen. Sanders described this by saying: “This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you’re-on-your-own individualism for everyone else”, an interesting statement, coming from Sen. Sanders, who is a self-proclaimed Socialist. The audit shows quite clearly that there is a serious problem with the way our economy is run in this country.  We must be in a […]




Take Action: Congress and the Debt Ceiling

July 12, 2011 at 5:41 pm

By now everyone has heard that the United States is going to hit our current borrowing limit on August 2nd according to a US Treasury estimate.  The President has stated repeatedly that the limit must be raised or the US will default on its debt and trigger an unprecedented financial crisis that will have widespread and far-felt ramifications.  Congress is currently wrestling over how to address this most serious issue, though how much of it is genuine dissent and how much is put on to create a good show for the public is debatable. The President would like us to all think that the problem here is that the debt ceiling is not high enough.  That is not the problem.  The problem is that the debt ceiling is even an issue.  The problem is that the federal government is borrowing at such a rate that the federal debt is increasing by $40,000 per second!  That comes out to $3.456 BILLION a day.  And the President wants more. The choice here is a simple one.  We either continue down the path of reckless spending that will ultimately lead to the utter destruction of the dollar and the complete financial collapse of […]
