It is February of 2012.  Do you fear our present government?  I do.  Even writing this post makes me afraid.

This administration, at this time, has asked Obama supporters to notify the administration if they see any anti-Obama messages, articles, etc.  They want people to spy on their fellow-Americans!

I’ve been around a long time, and I have never, EVER, been afraid of the government.  This is a FIRST!

TAKE WARNING!  WHEN THE PEOPLE FEAR THEIR GOVERNMENT, THERE IS TYRANNY; WHEN THE GOVERNMENT FEARS THE PEOPLE, THERE IS LIBERTY

n.b. Merillion:*

The courage to speak out!
Seen any lately?  I have.  But only from one man – Newt Gingrich.  From Republicans/Conservatives in Congress, all I’ve heard is a rehash of what problems we have, and that “we must fix them.”  I want to hear anger from our Congress.  I want them to GET MAD!  Why aren’t they ENRAGED??   When they are interviewed on television, they’re so quiet, so polite, so placid.  They don’t get enraged at what is happening within this country, and I get the impression that they don’t care!  I get the impression that they agree with Obama and his radical Liberals who disrespect the rules of Congress and our Government traditions, and whose aim in life is to bring down America!

We the People of the United States

ARE YOU ENRAGED ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN AMERICA?  I SURE AM!

I’M ANGRY BECAUSE A CEMETERY IN THE UNITED STATES HAS REMOVED THE HORIZONTAL BARS ON ALL THE CROSSES THERE;

BECAUSE JOE BIDEN SAYS WALL STREET HAS CAUSED OUR PRESENT ECONOMIC DILEMMA.  NO, JOE, YOU AND YOUR LEFT-WING DEMOCRATS DID THAT.  BARNEY FRANK  DID THAT.  OBAMA DID THAT BY SPENDING LIKE IT’S HIS OWN MONEY, INCREASING BY AN ASTONISHING AMOUNT OF MONEY AN ALREADY INCREDIBLY HIGH DEBT AND DEFICIT.  POLITICIANS WHO ARE OBSESSED WITH THEIR OWN RE-ELECTIONS DID THAT;

BECAUSE I HEAR OBAMA & MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TELLING ME THAT WE THE PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO MAKE SACRIFICES TO HELP OUR DESTROYED ECONOMY.  WE HAVE TO SACRIFICE?  NO, YOU MAKE THE SACRIFICES.  YOU DO WITHOUT YOUR PAYCHECKS.  LOTS OF U.S. CITIZENS ARE DOING WITHOUT THEIR PAYCHECKS BECAUSE OF YOU!

BECAUSE THOSE WE ELECTED DIDN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT OUR DEBT AND DEFICIT A LONG TIME AGO;

BECAUSE PRES. GEORGE BUSH IGNORED PLEAS FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO PUT A STOP TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, AND OBAMA AND HIS ADMINISTRATION NOT ONLY DO NOTHING, BUT ALSO TREAT THE GOVERNOR AND THE PEOPLE OF ARIZONA AS ENEMIES OF AMERICA;

BECAUSE I DON’T SEE JOHN BOEHNER STANDING BEFORE US AND ACTING LIKE HE’S ENRAGED ABOUT WHERE THIS ADMINISTRATION IS TAKING US.  WHERE’S THE ANGER FROM REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVES?  IS EVERYTHING GOING ON TODAY OK WITH ALL OF YOU?

BECAUSE SO MANY OF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS DON’T CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO THIS COUNTRY.  HEY, DON’T YOU LIVE HERE, TOO?

BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY LIARS IN THIS ADMINISTRATION.  I’M ANGRY THAT THOSE WHO KNOW ABOUT THIS DISHONESTY ARE AFRAID TO CALL OUT THE LIARS, AND IF THEY COURAGEOUSLY DO CALL THEM OUT, THEY ARE ASKED TO APOLOGIZE!  NO MORE APOLOGIZING FOR TELLING THE TRUTH!

PEOPLE YOU AND I HAVE ELECTED TO OFFICE, TRUSTING IN THEIR INTEGRITY, ARE LIARS.  THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.  I PARTICULARLY HATE PRESIDENTS, SENATORS, & REPRESENTATIVES WHO LIE TO ME.

I’M ANGRY BECAUSE IN RED HOOK, BROOKLYN, CITIZENS WANT TO HONOR SEVEN FIREFIGHTERS KILLED ON 9/11 BY NAMING A STREET FOR THEM “SEVEN IN HEAVEN.”  A GROUP OF ATHEISTS IS FIGHTING AGAINST THIS BECAUSE THE WORD “HEAVEN” IS USED, & THEY FEEL “INSULTED.”  MESSAGE TO THIS GROUP:  BE AN ATHEIST. I DON’T GIVE A CRAP WHAT YOU ARE.  I’LL ALLOW YOU TO BE AN ATHEIST.  AND YOU WILL ALLOW ME TO BE A CHRISTIAN, OR WHATEVER I DAMN WELL WANT TO BE.  WHY DON’T YOU SHUT UP.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WANTS TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES.  HOW ABOUT THAT, CONGRESS?

AND ABOUT OUR CONSTITUTION:  WE AMERICANS WHO CARE ABOUT AMERICA WILL NOT ALLOW YOU WHO DON’T CARE TO DO AWAY WITH THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

BE IT KNOWN BY ALL:

THE WORDS OF THE AMERICAN “PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE” ARE NOT A TOPIC FOR LEFT-WING DISCUSSION.

THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES DO NOT REQUIRE THE APPROVAL OF MEXICO.

WHEN LEFT-WING DEMOCRATS RESORT TO CALLING OTHERS “RACISTS!” IT’S BECAUSE THEY ARE UNABLE TO CONFRONT THE TRUTH.

AND NOW:

FROM THE STRUCTURE AND LEGALITY OF ELLIS ISLAND, WHICH HELPED TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT, TO THE CHAOS AND DEATH OF THE AMERICAN/MEXICAN BORDER; TO THE CHAOS AND DEATH IN NORWAY – THERE IS A CONNECTION, A THREAD.

I HEARD THAT WE MUST NOT USE CAPITAL LETTERS WHEN WRITING BLOGS, ETC., AS PEOPLE WILL THINK WE ARE “SHOUTING.”

I AM SHOUTING:

“ALL THAT IS NECESSARY FOR THE TRIUMPH OF EVIL IS THAT GOOD MEN DO NOTHING.”

Edmund Burke
