In response to a recent article posted by World Net Daily: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=108653

I implore you to remember. Remember that as parents and guardians, you have a choice. You can choose freedom or indoctrination and manipulation. Remember that parents are responsible to watch and be wary of what their children are subjected to. I wouldn’t subject my children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or kids of my friends to this man’s words any more than I would to pornography or a Muslim hate speech.

September 8, 2009 is a day in which ALL parents/guardians should exercise their freedom by keeping their children at home. Come on. We keep the children at home so that teachers can mentally regroup or so that we can honor the veterans who fought for our country. Surely this date is just as deserving. Make this date a true a FREEDOM DAY! Show Washington, D.C. that you will NOT allow them to raise your children. That you don’t condone this man’s methods. That you don’t respect him as a guardian to the youth in your life. Show them that liars, thieves, and whoremongers do not merit the attention and focus of our children except in moments of self-defense. Show the powers that be that they exist solely to serve you, and not the other way around. Remind them who really rules this nation–We the People. Do not force your children to bow down to the self-anointed King Obama!

I’m not asking you to stand on the bridge at Lexington with a loaded gun. I’m not asking you to sacrifice the lives of your sons and daughters as they go off to fight in a war for freedom. I’m not asking you to sacrifice your uttermost farthing. I’m not asking you to attend a Tea Party or other rally. I’m begging you to do this one simple act so that you can clearly show your demand of freedom—freedom from governmental oppression. Freedom from forced indoctrination. Freedom to act and choose that which is good over that which is questionable!

Freedom-Print-C10086265If you can’t take this one simple stand on Sept. 8, 2009, then what can you really do? Then begs the question “do you deserve the freedom that’s provided to you every day?” What will your children have in 10 years from now?

Show your children that freedom isn’t a passive gift. Show them that it’s a gift from God, not from some man standing in front of a fancy seal and mocking the flag of our nation.  This is the SAME man who threatens to forcibly vaccinate your children, steal thousands of dollars from you to give to criminal CEO heads, lies to you about his health care plan, lies to you about what the real state of inflation and the Consumer Price Index really is, and disrespects your religious beliefs by claiming that they don’t exist or that they are akin to those of right wing extremists. Is this a man you want your children to listen to? Frankly, you would truly educate your children more if you had them listen with you to a tirade by Hitler, Mussolini, Charles Manson, or Karl Marx.

This past 4th of July weekend, thousands of individuals got together for Tea Parties all over the United States for many purposes.  One of which was to send politicians a clear message of how they truly felt about what is going on in D.C.  Unfortunately, it’s obvious that some politicians are clueless even when the message is staring them straight on.  Enter stage left, Cherilyn Eagar who’s running against Bob Bennett for a Utah Senate seat.  On Independence Day she chose to “honor” the wishes of her desired constituents, not by rallying for independence, but simply by doing more of the same ole game–politicking.

At an Independence Day event in Orem, even after being asked by an event official not to desecrate the sanctity of a true Independence Day celebration with her postcards and politicking, she refused to stop.

Being partially in charge of security detail for the event, it was my job to ensure that presently elected officials or “wannabes” were mindful that we had promised all who attended that they would experience a NON-campaigning event.  Just as there is a time and place for bowling, so is there a time and place for campaigning.  The Orem Patriot Day 4th of July Tea Party was not one of those times.  This event was solely for the purpose to truly celebrate our Independence Day.  On the 4th of July, at Lakeridge Jr. High, Cherilyn Eagar chose to disrespect “We the People” by ignoring repeated requests to refrain from politicking/campaigning.  Even after a polite request was issued to her, she refused to stop.  Apparently, her objective of campaigning was much more important than the wishes of “We the People” who desired to take a break from having campaign promises stuffed down our throats and instead to let our politicians know what it is we wanted.

Swooping in on her broom with a member of her minion in tow, Cherilyn began stepping in front of those who were viewing the speakers and entertainment and passing out her paraphernalia.  With the assurances that this event was a “politician-free zone” many attendees were caught off guard and innocently accepted her wares.  Fortunately, I was one of the first to be given her clutter.  When I noticed what it was that she was handing out and why she was there, I made it known to “Igor” that this was promoted as a non-campaigning event and that we would prefer that she not dispense her information at this time.  Igor attempted to get such a message through to Cherilyn, but she refused to take heed.  Apparently she felt that she knew better what this group needed.  Sound familiar?  Instead, she icily informed me that this was a “public” place and that we had elected officials present.

Yes, Ms. Eagar.  The Lakeridge Jr. High did offer their property for the purpose of our event.  And yes, Madame, there were public officials present.  However, some of these publicly elected officials were INVITED to speak with the strict understanding that NO campaigning would take place.  Unlike Ms. Eager, Representative Brad Daw and Utah Attorney General, Mark Shurtleff honored such a request by their constituents.  They weren’t politicians that day, unlike yourself.  They were Americans rallying for freedom.  They understood perfectly the real purpose of that day.

Unfortunately Ms. Eagar showed her true patriotic colors that day and was narrowly focused on her own private objective.  As such she missed the desires of We the People that day.  Instead she depicted the epitome of what’s wrong with America—politicians more concerned about their own multi-trillion dollar objectives.  Of all days, Ms. Eagar proved this most poignantly on the 4th of July.  After a short while of being rebuffed by other citizens in the group, Ms. Eagar approached me and informed me she “had to go to other events.”  She said to me—and YES, I do quote—“You understand how the game is played.”  Yes, Madame, I do understand how the game is played.  And it’s exactly your kind of game that infuriates me.

Eager specifically talks in her campaign agenda about her desire for “new blood” in Washington, D.C.  Unfortunately, she showed this past Saturday that the colors of her blood are hued with a self-serving agenda, not a blood of sacrifice for freedom of “We the People.”  And by the way, Ms. Eagar, my freedom is NOT a game.  I do not take it lightly.  Nor do I take your attempt to irreverently tread on it that day lightly either.  In my opinion, due to the freedoms that our independence ensures, it’s the most important religious holiday in my book.  This past 4th of July gave those of us who are serious about our Freedom and Liberty an opportunity to gather and to strengthen our love and loyalty for this blessed nation.  You may have just as well come barging into the middle of a Sunday church service and started passing out your empty promises as to have interrupted a true celebration of freedom and independence that day.  Let the record show your true intentions towards the people of my Utah.  Please exit stage right.

This video of Steve Anderson is just over 8 minutes long.  The contents of it are disturbing to me from a standpoint of freedom, but even more disturbing to me are the comments of ignorant fools in response to this video.  Lest any more of you should grossly err in your judgment of this situation, allow me to enlighten you.

 

The time to stand up for your rights is ANY and EVERY time they are being violated.

 

One person on YouTube commented that this person should not have “taken the law into his own hands.”  Sorry folks.  The law is FOR the people, not issued in hopes that power-drunken agents such as these will honor it.  It is for ALL of the people.  It is your DUTY to know what the laws are and push back.  For too long the overwhelming majority has been apathetic to their rights under the laws, and this is exactly why such atrocities of law have occurred in this situation.  Do you naively believe that only the military is empowered to support and sustain our Constitutional rights?  How is that fair that our soldiers have to lose their lives to defend our freedoms, but every citizen in this country doesn’t have to do their part as well?  As insignificant as this act may seem to others in the nation, in my opinion there is virtue and righteousness in affirming our rights under all circumstances. 

 

Another ignoramus commented that “from what he was able to find out, this guy isn’t a very good person.”  Others accused him of being a “know-it-all” and a pompous @$$, etc.  Guess what, folks?  The rights of the U.S. Constitution are ensured for all people, including someone who may come across to some as a jerk.  That’s why some personalities are permitted to grace your television sets and radio stations.  There is no U.S. law which states you must comply nicely when your rights are or are not being violated.  There is no requirement that you speak softly, etc.  So whether you support the personality traits of this person is completely unimportant.  As an American, his rights are his rights regardless.

 

As the result of his FIRST Amendment right (which is not a coincidence that such a right is in the first position of all outlined rights in our Constitution) this individual has the right to free speech.  Thus anything he may have said which would make a person angry is unacceptable grounds for the actions of these so-called agents.

 

Several foolish posters commented that “all this guy had to do was answer the questions.”  Again.  They are wrong.  If a police officer comes to your door and begins asking you questions, you are under NO obligation to answer such questions.  Answering questions by law enforcement is not a requirement.  In fact, in accordance to the Fifth Amendment, we have the right to not say ANYTHING which may incriminate us.  Even the Miranda Rights reaffirm such. Not answering questions does not negate any of your other rights under the U.S. Constitution.

 

Another fool posted a supposition that Congress has granted the Border Patrol broad authority of search and seizures.  Guess what.  I don’t care if the President himself gave the Border Patrol agents permission to behave this way, it’s illegal!  Pure and simple.  No law can be passed in this country which is at odds with the U.S. Constitution.  The only way that this act could be made “legal” is if there was a Constitutional Amendment fully ratified.  Congress also recently passed an enormous bill without even reading it.  Does that make it right or legal?  No.  It’s malpractice.  And such a foolish comment flies in the face of all of those who have died so that we may now possess those rights.  Until I see a Congressman who will pay the “uttermost farthing” to protect my rights as did our Founding Fathers, then such a Congressman does not receive any honorable attentions from me.  Too many of our Americans today are sheep.  They feel that simply because the President declares something, or the Congressmen say it and then sign it, that it’s law.  Sorry folks.  All laws MUST be in alignment with the U.S. Constitution.  New laws can specify, clarify, and even give consequences for violating the laws and rights of the U.S. Constitution, but they cannot circumvent or violate them.

 

baptist-pastor-steve-andersonThen there are the masses of individuals who would judge this person because he’s a Baptist Pastor.  He’s accused of being difficult by being non-compliant.  Boy howdy am I ever GRATEFUL for my non-compliant Founding Fathers, as well as my non-compliant Savior who did NOT “save” the Jews based on their short-sighted expectations and demands.  Too many individuals wrongly presume that as a Baptist pastor, he should be a mouse and comply.  Sorry, you’d be wrong again to presume such.  This guy did not spew foul language at these agents.  He did not “get in the way” of their tazers and metal batons.  These “agents” made a choice to act in the manner in which they did.  As such, Jesus would condemn them, not the person upon whom they acted.  It’s alarming to me just how many folks believe that standing up for your Constitutional rights is an act of deviance in the Christian world—especially in light of the fact that God inspired the men who served as our Founding Fathers of this nation.  God is fully invested in our rights being upheld in this nation.

 

The fact that the dog was brought into this as grounds for the search is laughable as well, since the Fourth Amendment requires that probable cause be established by “oath or affirmation.”  Clearly Fido didn’t say anything.  He was merely used as a pawn for their designs.  Isn’t it ironic that law ENFORCEMENT officials don’t care much for a person who actually helps them understand the laws of which they are to enforce?  Case in point, if a 31-year-old man has sex with a 14-year-old girl, even if it’s consensual, it’s illegal.  Coinciding with that, even if the American people are willing to have their rights raped and pillaged “consensually” it’s still illegal and in direct violation of our Bill of Rights.  Even honest citizens with nothing to hide are violated whenever we consent to the erosion of our rights and liberty.

 

Another aspect of this incident is the excessive force.  Hmmm… how many drug traffickers have made it across the border without their windows bashed in, or having been cut, tazed, and battered?  Even if this guy WAS a drug dealer, they are NOT permitted to treat him as such.  That’s right.  Even if he was verbally belligerent, had a couple of kids and some drugs in the back of the car, the Border Patrol are not permitted to handle the situation the way they did.  This constitutes “unreasonable search.”  But hey, it’s not unreasonable seizure because they found NOTHING.  (Although, due to the damage they inflicted on the vehicle, they did in fact illegally “seize” this man’s car.)

 

This person is rumored to have had a “run-in” with Border Patrol previously in which he also refused to answer their questions.  However, posting a video on YouTube complaining about your previous treatment with Border Patrol does not give an “agent” free reign to violate your Constitutional rights.  Plain and simple, Folks.

 

While it may take a while to get this all sorted out, anytime a person legally defends their rights of this nation, they have my wholehearted support.  I may not agree with their personality traits, their religion, or their other beliefs, but they are indeed correct in asserting those rights.

 

Bottom line, if you will not stand up for the Constitution, who will?

ny-times-illegal-immigration

If the threat of being deported or incarcerated does not stem the tide of illegal immigration, perhaps the threat of completely losing one’s children will do the trick.  While this may sound harsh, it is the consequences of illegal acts perpetrated by the illegal immigrant parents.  The enormous problem I have with this article is that it is titled “After Losing Freedom Some Immigrants Face Loss of Custody of Their Children”  These parents never had freedom. Freedom is only given to the just and the law-abiding citizens in this country.  It is not, and should never, be granted to individuals who were merely able to prolong the consequences of their illegal acts long enough to give birth to children in this nation.

tea-party-mapOver 2,000 tea parties were held throughout the U.S. on April 15, over 700 of them in major cities.  By all estimates there were overwhelming numbers of attendees at these events, highlighting it as a marked moment in history.  Even in light of all of the other movements (such as the Vietnam War, civil rights, women’s right to vote, etc.) which have all notably marked our history, this is the first time that everyday citizens have rallied in such record numbers.  Even more significant is that the majority of those who attended these Tea Parties had never attended a rally previously.  That’s right.  These were not paid ACLU or ACORN advocates orchestrating a fake grassroots movement.  These were everyday Americans, leaving the comfort of their security, even some taking time off from work, to finally let their voices be heard.  Thousands came out in spite of severe inclement weather.  But that’s not the story.  The story is the story.

 

On April 15th and all day yesterday, no major newspaper or mainstream news station (non-cable) covered this story with any more time or emphasis than they would have a basement flooding in a person’s home.  Network news didn’t cover it, except that NBC personally, on a 3rd grade level, attacked the folks who showed up for such events.  Not so surprising was CNN represented by a female reporter who was blatantly prosecutorial throughout the course of her “interviewing” of Tea Party attendees.  THIS was the story in spite of the fact that this act of so many, even novices, gathering in protest of their government was a truly historical day. 

 

tea-party-protest-chicagoAnd yet how were the acts of these modern-day Patriots portrayed?  With scoffs, and “intellectual” scorns.  Their intelligence was insulted.  Their education was questioned.  Even their virtue and parental capabilities were slandered.  Not by a few, but by the mainstream media.  Does anybody wonder why an “Us vs. Them” mentality has begun to manifest itself in our America?  Better yet, does anyone wonder why newspapers are now begging for a bailout?  Pelosi has the audacity to call these historical efforts “astroturf” contrived by the wealthy.  Really?  Raise your hand if you were compensated one penny to protest at a Tea Party.  Better yet, raise your hand if it actually COST you money to be there.

 

As honest, law-abiding, tax-paying citizens took to the streets to make their rationale voices heard, the cowardly sheep stayed at work on their computers posting anonymous comments as to the caliber of the individuals doing so.  One person commented on the “lack of education” of those who would take such proactive actions.  I ask you—you, who cowers in your cubicle to mock those who stand—just how much education does one need in order to understand that they are being raped and pillaged?  They don’t need to have an understanding of the constitution to know that they’ve got more bills than they have money right now.  They don’t need a PhD to understand that they’ve been laid off of their jobs.  And are you aware, Oh Stupid One, that the majority of the millions of Americans who laid the groundwork of this United States only had the education equivalent of our present fourth grade level? 

 

tea-party-cant-fix-stupidWas the Boston Tea Party of 1773 merely “astroturf,” Pelosi?  In my patriotic, fed up opinion, those who would deride the genuine efforts of April 15th are indeed the enemy of our freedoms.  Regardless of what position they hold, what power they wield, or how much money they make, they are the no different than those who opposed the original Boston Tea Party of 1773, favoring instead the mythical power and influence of the tyrannical King George.

 

Remember this—Tyrants and Traitors of Our Freedom—when the day comes that you find yourself void of the freedoms which you’ve come to take for granted, yea, even that day when the very freedom which permits you to mock and scorn in the name of journalism is eliminated, don’t ask me to defend you, for I will truly “know you not.”  Instead I will be focused and fighting solely for those who have a deep-seeded virtue of Freedom within them.

“A rose by any other name is still a rose.”  Isn’t it interesting how our government has camouflaged its selected names of programs and legislation in order to falsely influence the American people as to what these issues really are?  You’ve heard of oxy-morons such as “military intelligence” in jest, I’m sure.  But when it comes to many of the name games our government plays, there’s nothing funny about it. 

1)    National Security Letters: The name implies that these are letters which provide or promote security to our nation, when in fact they are used abusively by the FBI, CIA, DOD, and NSA to as a weapon against law-abiding citizens.  Additionally there is no limit to the amount or type of information which can be seized via an NSL.  And they are now to be complied with without exception.  Today, in order for any federal agent (FBI, DOD, or CIA) to write an NSL, they must only comply with the requirement that they claim—not provide any evidence thereof—that the desired records may be related to an ongoing terrorism investigation or intelligence activities.  These warrants require the production of “any tangible things” such as books, records, documents, lists, etc, without any consideration given to any reasonable time frames or costs to produce such information.  Oh, and by the way, there is NO judicial oversight on the use of these, not even from Congress.  As if that’s not enough, whoever receives such a “letter” is legally gagged from telling anyone about them, even if it’s your own attorney who receives it.  The attorney can’t even tell YOU that he’s about to turn over all of your files to the FBI.  Now how’s that for national security?

2)   Federal Reserve:  Contrary to what their own website states, as well as that of other government agencies, there is nothing “federal” about the Federal Reserve.  They are not a part of the US Government.  In fact, in an interview with Alan Greenspan, when asked, “What should be the proper relationship between the chairman of the Federal and the President of the United States?” Greenspan responded, “Well, first of all the Federal Reserve is an independent agency.  And that means basically there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take, so long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the administration or congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then what the relationships are don’t frankly matter.”  While the Federal Reserve behaves as a 4th branch of our government, there is no governing authority over them other than for Congress to rule that we will no longer do business with them.  Good luck with that, right?  In addition, there is no longer any “reserves” backing the currency issued by the Federal Reserve.  We don’t even require them to issue a report that tells us how much currency is in circulation so that we can be sure our money still holds its value.  Ultimately, the Federal Reserve name is just as contrived to deceive as was a local computer company in my neck of the woods called “Totally Awesome Computers” (It went bankrupt).

3)   Carbon Credits: Wow. This name sounds like the U.S. taxpayers might actually get a credit for something, right?  Wrong.  These two words combine to become the most threatening level of taxation that our nation has ever seen.  As a result of the passage of a “Carbon Credits” program, countless energy companies will be required to pay for the air they use.  As a result, they will of course pass these fees on to their consumers.  Electricity, gasoline, natural gas, kerosene, coal, and even solar energy just became significantly more expensive.  As the result of this “credit” every American household can expect an average of a $3,000 INCREASE to their electric bill every year.  That’s just ONE source of energy you use.  If I continue to tell you about all of the other ramifications, I’m afraid that there will be a run on the pharmacies for anti-depressants nationwide.

4)   The G.I.V.E. Act: Once again, a very deceptive name.  The only thing this act gives is unconstitutional orders.  While admittedly it’s been scaled down a bit from its first version as HR 1388, (and changed HR and Senate numbers multiple times) it’s still ridiculously named.  The original proposal under HR 1388 would REQUIRE citizens of America in a wide range of ages to provide a mandatory period of “service” to their communities in whatever fashion the government deemed necessary.  In addition to that, the House of Representatives even added an amendment that stated that while individuals were in the process of providing this “voluntary” service, they were prohibited from engaging in numerous acts of free speech.  Yup. That’s a GIVE act, alright.  Giving American citizens the ole heave ho, at least.

5)   The Patriot Act: This is the mother of all misnamed issues.  I’m convinced that our Founding Fathers and all those who sided with them during the Revolutionary War feel that their true title of “Patriot” has been mercilessly molested.  There is nothing Patriot or patriotic about this act.  It consistently tramples on countless constitutional amendments in the name of protecting our nation from terrorism.  Now we are instructed to not even use the word “terrorist” or “enemy combatants” but we’re still stuck with this offensive violation of our rights to free speech.  The not-so-Patriot Act has Congress giving his agents permission to listen to our phone calls, read our e-mails, and obtain unlimited amount of personal information about us.  The “war on terror,” which gave birth to this heinous beast, has quickly disguised itself as an enemy intrusion on American’s privacy, freedom of movement and thought, individuality and civil liberties.  Does that mean that the terrorists have essentially won now?

Ultimately the lesson we all need to learn here is that we cannot afford to be mindless sheep armed with good hearts.  We must be more proactive in discovering and educating ourselves with the abundance of truthful information that is available to us.  Getting our misinformation from the mass media will be no excuse when we appear before our Creator and attempt to explain to Him how we let something so valuable as freedom disintegrate from our nation.  Each and every one of us is endowed with the freedom to choose, thus God’s perfect law will require that each and every one of us be held responsible for what we did with those choices.  I believe that an understanding of this responsibility is why our Founding Fathers sacrificed all that they had to give us the rights to freely choose freedom.  Indeed, when we’re before the Creator of Truth, we surely won’t be able to play the politicking finger pointing game.  The blame will be ours regardless of how the program was masqueraded.

barack-obama

I have been biting my tongue on this topic for a long time now, not wanting to appear like I’m not giving him a chance. But today was the last straw.

Barack Obama has absolutely no Presidential class or dignity.

I was shocked when he was making his “presidential” speech, after he’d already won the election, and saw fit to take pot shots at President Bush. I know I was raised by good parents, but I would think that any parent who’s raising a future president of the United States would raise them with an awareness of dignity and civility. I expect to hear that kind of anti-Bush rhetoric during the politicking leading up to the election, but not afterwards, and frankly I don’t think it’s been done in recent history either. Why? Because it lacks class! It’s petty. This was supposed to be his first day of presidential regality and he sees fit to use it to promote his “nanny nanny noo noo” nonsense against President Bush.

Adding insult to injury, he crippled Washington D.C. financially by bankrupting them with the most lavish inaugural address in history, outspending Bush by over 4 to 1!

Our country is in MOURNING. Millions have lost their retirement, their jobs, their hope for a future, and he decides that elaborate excess is in the country’s best interest? During such an economic crisis, there are several U.S. Presidents that certainly would have firmly believed this to be undignified (Wilson, Roosevelt, Washington, Adams, etc.)

BushSince Obama has taken the reins of the Presidency, he continues to shift blame to what is going on in our nation to the previous President and the Republican party. Mr. President, be a man, not a martyr! Own up and fix it if you think it’s so bad! Don’t misunderstand. I’m not happy with how Bush performed his duties. And I feel that my convictions and beliefs have been betrayed in many aspects by the Republicans. However, Obama cannot continue to be believable in any way shape or form if he intends to put the blame of our country’s woes on the backs of any particular party or president.  After all, Obama has stains on his hands for the mortgage mess we’re in as he was a part of insisting that government made economically questionable home loans. Obama screws up while taking the Oath of Office and sees fit to blame it on a Supreme Court justice? This is not behavior fitting of the president of our nation. Surely his mother raised him better than that! (How about the simple rule of “respect your elders?”)

How in the world does Obama think he’s promoting bi-partisanship when every time he speaks he sees fit to remind the American people that either a) They made a mistake in electing Bush in the first place (ouch…salt in the wound) or b) Our votes didn’t matter over the last 8 years because Obama is going to undo everything Bush ever did, or c) those who still do promote and believe in the Republican way of life are conquered human beings.

stem-cell-research-ny-timesHe continues to forget that the voters of this nation, to whom he is addressing, put Bush in office for two consecutive terms! And yet he sees fit to degrade that administration at every turn and to nullify ANYTHING that that administration did previously that Obama and the Democratic Party disagrees with. What good is the right to vote if your votes can merely be negated the next time someone comes along who doesn’t agree with them? To me that’s not a republic, that’s a monarchy. That kind of behavior is not indicative of a president of a free country, it’s indicative of a tyrant. And how does this behavior reinforce in any way his so-called goals of bi-partisan cooperation. I’m starting to wonder seriously if we haven’t just been taken over by a King and his “King’s men.” In light of Obama’s complete disregard for the will of this nation’s people, he’s allowed for federal monies to be spent on stem cell research. Many people supported President Bush’s actions on stem-cell research. I, for one, certainly did, out of my devotion to the freedoms of the Constitution and my firmly held religious beliefs. It is immoral to take of the wealth from one people to give to another. And that’s exactly what he’s doing with this allocation. It is in violation of the religious beliefs of millions of Americans in our country as well. This isn’t even HIS money to allocate to such a cause. It is for the function of the government whose primary purpose is to protect the rights and freedoms of the people of this nation! Perhaps if we weren’t taxed so high, then private enterprise would still have money to fund such research themselves and not burden the American taxpayer with a process so repugnant to the senses of many.

I wonder how many other presidential policies he will attempt to reverse? Perhaps he’d like to teach George Washington a thing or two and decide to reverse his policy on the right to keep and bear arms… oh wait, Obama’s already trying to do that.

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”
— Thomas Jefferson, 1 Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334

“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good”
— George Washington

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
— Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers at 184-188

sedition-actOr perhaps he’d like to reinstitute the Sedition Act which Thomas Jefferson specifically abolished. Perhaps he’d like to reinstate the errors of other presidents while he’s at it such as the internment camps which violated the rights of hundreds of thousands of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Perhaps he’d like to get rid of the Declaration of Independence altogether so as not to be inconvenience with any conflict of conscience.

I don’t believe that the majority of our government-elected officials are serving the people any longer. They are serving themselves to get power and gain, and we apathetic sheep are allowing it. While Obama’s not even able to keep his campaign promises for an entire week, he’s sabotaging more of our country’s freedoms. Why doesn’t he show some dignity and put to rest the accusations of his heritage, to prove once and for all that he is legally able to be elected President of our nation instead of sending his dogs to the courthouse to use every convoluted and perverted law of privacy to protect that information from ever being released? If he has nothing to hide then why won’t he show this information instead of bullying his citizens in court, now at the cost to American taxpayers?

declaration-of-independence-2Here’s a warning “Mr. President.” If you are not able to even create a façade of class and decorum when you are in front of the cameras for all the world to see, then I suspect you are doing much worse behind our backs. Remember, the Declaration of Independence reads “…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” I, for one, will not consent or stand idly by while you insult this great nation with your representation of us, nor will I allow you to strip us of any more of our liberties. You are truly the last straw—of the indignity of liberties lost. I will use all of my influence to right the real wrongs of our past leaders.

I suppose that if nothing else, I appreciate you for waking me up from my nap of stupor. Had it not been for your blatant and bold uncivilized behavior, I might still be sleeping.
