The move against Obama is clear in this endorsement - in fact it is the only cause for it.
Savage is one of those hosts who says what needs to be said, regardless of consequence... very independent... always on the front lines of controversial issues - headed up the anti-immigration movement (a large movement which pitted many independents against McCain)...
Perhaps this will swing a few more votes away from Obama, as an indicator that those who understand liberty understand what Obama intends to do to it!
Fear of being labelled a "loser", fear of angry cursing liberals... Fear of being an outcast.
I got a good laugh out of it... but this is seriously disturbing.

OBAMA is NOT the candidate for more personal freedom!
"Barack Obama would be the most anti-gun president in our nation's history. That's the truth,” concluded Cox. “NRA-PVF has the facts on our side. No amount of running from or lying about his record and then intimidating news outlets in the hope of deceiving American gun owners and hunters is going to work. Those strong arm tactics may work in Chicago, but not in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and not as long as NRA-PVF has anything to say about it."

What is most noteable is that Russell Means won the top of the ticket in the Primary, recieving 933 votes over Theresa Two Bulls, a sitting state senator, who received 804 votes. Means will be placed on the top of the ticket, and has the momentum to win the top seat in the tribe - as the current president finished a distant third to the first two, garnishing only 721 votes - indicating a change in direction for the poorest people within the borders of the United States.
Means' Freedom Party represents a change for the Sioux, a change that is over 100 years in the making.
The Sioux used to be a great nation of people, living in their horse culture from Omaha Nebraska to Billings Montana. The United States signed treaties recognizing their national borders in the Fort Laramie Treaties, promising no settlement in their lands for their protection of the railways passing through to the west coast. The Sioux respected the terms of the treaty, which were offered by the United States - and so did the United States, until gold was found in the Sioux Nation's Black Hills. Prospectors flocked to the hills to mine, in violation of the treaties of Laramie, and the United States sent the army to defend white settlers and prospectors from attacks by Sioux defending their territory and minerals. These conflicts led to a series of battles both in courts and on the battlefield - including Custer's last stand, and culminating in the Wounded Knee Masacre of 1890. The genocide against the Sioux continues to this day by the forced boundaries of their nation within the boundaries of their reservations, refusing private land ownership and the means for economic development - as reservation lands are "held in trust" by the federal government, denying individual ownership.
However the courts may have decided against the tribes during the indian wars of the late 19th century, there was an interesting article in the US Constitution which they consistently overlooked - Article 6, declaring all Treaties as Supreme Law of the Land. Regardless of the expansionist agenda of the United States, and the legal course which they attempted to take, Article 6 declares that the United States MUST observe the terms of the treaties signed at Laramie. Under this law, the Sioux were wrongfulyl invaded and are wrongfully imprisoned on these reservations.
Russell Means made this case on behalf of his people and delivered terms to the United States Government - who refused to acknowledge because Means was not a representative of the tribe, as a council member or any elected official.
If Russell Means wins in one week, The United States Government is going to find themselves in a legal battle over land rights, mineral rights and reparations, and the rise of a free and legal nation within her own borders - the Republic of Lakota.
A Republic of Lakota, under the leadership of Means, will work to eliminate taxes (creating a tax haven for US business investors), create funds for the government from solar and wind farming - a government centered energy endeavor eliminating the need for taxes and providing beneficial services to the United States, stimulate education and job creation within the tribal members to increase wealth and health, and provide other general functions of the government. They will cast aside the idea of "Reservation" and the reservation mentality which has plagued generations of Sioux since their ancestors were murdered in greed - causing a society of poverty, addiction, disease, and suicide.
If the Sioux are ever to rebound and survive as a people, they need to be free. There needs to be a fundamental change in the operations of the reservation, a move towards progress for an independent and thriving people.
Means notes that the only people not represented at the table of nations are the American Natives. They are, and continue to be a second class citizen of the United States, regarded as less... there is an accepted racism when discussing Native Americans, and a general disregard for their legal authority and constitutional treaties. It is time for Americans to take a second look at the history, the legality, and the future of American Natives.

Sure, Obama is going to be a thousand times worse, God help us if he wins.
But the nationalization of our banks, lending firms, mortgage industry, education system, and now auto industry, with an option to nationalize the oil and energy sector (once they are taxed into oblivion or forced to fund energy alternatives that will be nationalized and put them out of business anyway) - that is all the legacy of George Bush, the most Liberally Left president in the History of the United States, with the most authoritarian regime in the history as well - rivalling King George, against whom we won our independence.
Bush has ushered in a new era.
Under Obama, he will utilize the socialist momentum established by Bush to enact sweeping governmental reform, putting an end to civil liberty and establishing the perpetual police state of the Americas - policing thoughts, spending, labor, etc... Say good-bye to personal defense, personal responsibility, and personal freedom to speak out against the government. Those will give way to gun bans making Brady look like child's play. He will have the power to place 5 of 9 Supreme Court Justices, which he believes should be radical left judges who uphold the ideal of wealth redistribution, etc... either way, the deck is stacked against the citizen - and we will surely live under Tyranny.
Under McCain, he will utilize this socialist momentum to appease the populist complainers, continuing Bush's policy of entitlements. He will open the borders to millions of immigrant workers, who will benefit from further hand-outs. He indicates that the direction will change, but I argue that it will just not be as bad as Obama. He is the other side of the same coin. he is the lesser of two evils.
With Congress pushing the Fed for another $150 Billion bail-out, the $700 Billion being used to snatch up and nationalize private industry giants, and the public crying out against corruption, as long as the tit is not pulled from THEIR mouth... Change is what we are getting... Change into a nationalized socialist country under authoritarian control.
Thanks, Bush! Thanks for the legacy!
"STEVE, I CHALLENGE YOU TO EXPLAIN WHY SOCIALISM IS BAD. WE SOCIALIZE OUR ROADS, OUR POLICE, OUR FIRE DEPARTMENTS. WE SHOULD HAVE UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE TOO. THE "FREE MARKET" APPROACH IS NOT WORKING. THE IDEA IS TO PROVIDE BASIC UNIVERSAL SERVICES FOR CITIZENS. IT IS REPUBLICAN JOE MCCARTHY SMEAR & FEAR & GUILT BY ASSOCIATION TACTICS [HE'S A MUSLIM. HE'S A SOCIALIST. HE'S NOT PATRIOTIC ETC] THAT HAS GIVEN SOCIALISM A BAD NAME."My response, posted below, should be an indication that free market principles, and a grasp at the historical importance of liberty and the role of government are not only important, but VITAL to the preservation of our Republic (NOT Democracy!!!!!) If the fundamentals of our way of life are not udnerstood, then our way of life has already been lost - and we should accept that the government has grown into an authoritarian powerhouse - and we should accept that a Democrat victory in November will spell the end of liberty, and end that Bush has helped usher in! I digress... My response to the question of Socialism is as follows:
To be honest, it is socialism in history that has given socialism a bad name. The premise to socialism is a large government - large governments with authoritarian control. The presence of large governments in America is a current reality, which is a direct affront to liberty.
Let me explain further.
Can we agree that the initiation of force is evil? This is not to be confused with defense, etc... but the initiation of force.
Assuming your answer is yes, I will continue.
The idea of taxation is the essence of the initiation of force, by the government on the people. George Washington referred to the policy of taxation as "inconvenient and unpleasant" and an "intrinsic embarrassment" - though he did recognize that there was a necessity of taxation with the purpose of paying down debt. In his farewell address to the nation, paragraph 30, Washington discussed debt: "...avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertions in time of peace to discharge the debts..." He also advocated for neutrality in regional conflicts, as the idea of forcing free men into foreign wars was an initiation of force as well. There is an historical precedence that indicates that the initiation of force is evil, and that taxation is a nasty side effect of government with the purpose of paying down the debt. It was not until 1913 when the idea of an Income Tax was made a reality - opening the doors for a continued large scale government. This was not part of the original intent of the free nation.
Furthermore, classical economist Adam Smith indicated that the government has three functions: national defense, administration of justice (law and order), and the provision of certain public goods (e.g., transportation infrastructure and basic and applied education). The existence of these three functions provided the atmosphere for the best economic growth - indicating minimal taxation, minimal government interference in private life, while stressing the importance of collective needs which do not hinder liberty, but serve to increase fundamentals of a society (access and education). This answers your question regarding fire and police protection... classical capitalism requires the administration of justice as a means to secure private property.
Ultimately, the existence of liberty - true personal freedom - lies within personal responsibility and minimal government intervention. As stated above, the ideology of socialism is predicated on the existence of an overbearing government with the power to intervene in personal decision making. This intervention (through taxes or authoritarian laws) is the initiation of force, and by definition, evil.
Let's use an example that was on the Colorado Ballot - a change to the Colorado Constitution dictating that an employer with 20 employees or more shall provide healthcare coverage. This is an example of the initiation of force by the government. What laws of this nature encourage is economic slowdown - as an employer now has just cause not to hire a 20th person, or has just cause to lower wages to cover the cost of the mandatory service, or risk taking the money directly out of his/her small business earnings. A more appropriate (small government) path would be to fix the high cost of healthcare by encouraging more citizens to go into medicine, and tightening loose laws on malpractice lawsuits (lowering insurance premiums for doctors - thus lowering costs).
The reason why healthcare is not working now is because the system is in a pull between the idea of free market and the false system of "insurance" that has propped up as a safety net - artificially driving costs through the roof.
One thing is for certain, the Socialist dictum of "to each according to his need, by each according to his ability" would indicate that a doctor MUST provide a service, regardless of goods received, because they are able. However, doctors are businessmen, who take on large loans/debts to pursue a career - to serve their duties as doctors as they see fit. The same can be said for educators, musicians, and engineers. What right does the government have in dictating how we use our skills, at what price we charge for our skills, and where we can use our skills? This idea of a "government entity" that is separate from the people, able to dictate such nonsense, is the absence of liberty.
Remember also that this conversation is in regards to the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, which is dictated by the constitution of the united state. Should a state or local government so choose to provide services, the 9th and 10th amendment dictate that it is their right to establish their own local laws and way of life.
In short, Socialism is bad not because McCarthy told me it is bad - even though that is the stigma associated with "He's a socialist". It is not smear if it is true, btw. Socialism is predicated on the initiation of force by a government entity, dictating unnecessary taxes and social behavior through such use of force. By this definition, Socialism is evil.
(as a side note, regarding economies tending toward socialism - history has shewn that free market capitalist societies with tax rates no higher than 20% nominally show fastest economic growth, while countries which have attained a status of "wealthy" who trend toward increased social programs and higher taxes see an economic growth plateau. See the history of Sweden and Ireland as examples of Socialism and Capitalism (repsectively) and the effects on their economic growth.)

In his farewell address to the United States, George Washington published a series of thoughts and hopes for America as the nation embarked on it's great experiment of self government. His address was published on September 17th, 1796. In reading through the document, the reader is struck with all the intention of the founding of this nation - and the passion for liberty being the lifeblood of the free union of states. The first President makes some beautiful remarks - which I will share and expand on my thoughts of his opinion.
Philosophy on foreign wars / alliances: (i.e. Iraq, NATO, United Nations)
"Why quit our own [soil] to stand upon foreign ground?"
"Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all."
"The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is...to have with them as little political connexion [sic] as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop."
"It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world."
Inasmuch, the lessons of our forefathers, and the father of our country, warn that the tangling in permanent alliances and political connection to other nations is a direct affront to our sovereignty and liberty. Washington also details his stance of Neutrality in the continued wars in Europe, and the ideal that a Free American should question the intent of leaving free land to stand on foreign ground... George Washington would indicate that such a political war in Iraq, the policy of political influence throughout the world, and the authoritarian one-world ideals of our current government are not the "true policy" of the Federal Government. Washington understood that such alliances would unnecessarily pull the free citizens of the Untied States into wars that we would be better to avoid. He further suggests that “The peace often, sometimes perhaps the liberty, of nations has been the victim” of motives of foreign governments with which we find ourselves allied.
Observing good faith and justice towards all nations, to me, would indicate that when the government of Iraq is requesting that they be allowed to take over full control of their government, and are even considering letting the legality of US presence expire on Dec 31st, it should be the answer of the United States that the people of Iraq should be allowed to take control – ending the war.
Philosophy on the Economy:
“As a very important source of strength and security, cherish public credit…use it as sparingly as possible; avoiding occasions of expense by cultivating peace; avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertions in times of peace to discharge the debts.”
Washington understood that a national government in debt, especially to foreign nations, was a government entangled in an alliance – and as such, limiting the ability of the government to ensure peace and liberty amongst the citizens. Washington would most likely be opposed to “entitlement checks” and the nationalization of the federal banks. These ideals are the opposite of a fabric of moral judgment and liberty within the government.
Philosophy of Political Parties:
“The common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of Party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it”
“Combinations or associations of [Parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people, and to usurp for themselves the reins of government; destroying afterwards the very engines, which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
“The natural domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissention, is itself a frightful despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty.”
It is no secret that Washington opposed the existence of political parties, as they were self serving and destructive in their roles towards their opposition. They were the source of insurrection against the existence of a common union government in favor of domination over an opposing party. Washington described perfectly the very situation which today is placing such a strain on the union of states. The party system is employing malicious tactics on one side to ensure domination over the other to ensure absolute power. Washington’s prognostication of this source of strain as the strongest power to dissolve the union of common defense was absolutely correct. He correctly described the dueling factions which are the source of the political dissent in this country. If there was ever a stronger case against the party system, I have not heard it.
Philosophy of Liberty:
“Hence, likewise, they will avoid the necessity of those overgrown military establishments, which, under any form of government, are inauspicious to liberty, and which are to be regarded as particularly hostile to Republican Liberty.”
“It is important that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution, in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon the other.”
As my previous posts indicate, I am in favor of Washington’s stance regarding a control of the size and functions of the government as a necessity to liberty. Washington warned of a large regular army as being hostile to liberty, as much as he warned of cautioning citizens of the nation to keep the government constrained within the bounds of their constitutional limits.
Currently, we have a two party warring system determined to obtain absolute power over the other, and the people of the nation, by using the tools granted to the government by themselves which exist outside of the bounds of the constitution.
According to our first president, George Washington, it is therefore our right to enforce the checks and balances of the will of liberty, by casting out those laws encroaching on the rights of free men in this country, and likewise, the corrupt and unprincipled leaders who have worked to encourage such policies.
It is inspiring, from time to time, to understand the principles and values upon which this country was founded – yet sad that our leadership and general population have deviated so far from liberty in favor of security, be it financial or physical. Those willing to transfer some liberty for some security deserve neither, and will get neither.

What was born out of the hearts and minds of men much nobler than we, was laid to rest by a conspiracy of the generations to acclimate mankind to the suffering of evil. Liberty, born from the blood and tears of the brave, once shook her fist in defiance of tyranny, now so suddenly finds herself succumb to tyranny's strangle. A struggle through the ages, let pass by complacency.
The birth of liberty was a roar in the hearts of our forefathers, yet so fragile that a single whisper could destroy it's existence. Our fathers crafted liberty from the scorched sands of time itself - a new experiment where man was free to live as he saw fit. An idea so abstract that it defied the logic of history, it was said that such a Republic could only survive if we could keep it.
Liberty gave birth to innovation that defined the presence of man upon this earth - creatures of invention attempting the impossible and succeeding. It was not free men who laid claim to the dreams of success, but it was free men who made it possible. Liberty gave wings to man, lifting him for the first time into the endless skies. Liberty gave man the moon, a feat of our crowing achievement - the endless opportunity of unconditional freedom. Liberty gave man technology to communicate, providing a forum for free and limitless ideas and imaginations.
Liberty has inspired song, poems, and novels. It is longed for by those who lack it. Man yearns for this experiment of personal freedom. It beat in the heart of Americans, and spread throughout the world like a thousand burning embers landing in the dried fields of less fortunate men's hearts - igniting a blaze, a passion for liberation of the self. Men from around the world felt the burning in their chest and joined the land of the free.
But a dark cloud had come over the land, bringing with it the winds of time. The lessons of history, blown away by the resurgence of tyranny, have been lost to many - the many needed in this generation to stand in defiance of tyranny, and, if necessary, spill their blood so that others may soon not forget what noble gift we have neglected. History's lesson is that man is disposed to suffer evils rather than cast aside that to which they have become accustomed. It is a lesson that tyranny knows well, and has become so shrewd at calling upon.
In the heart of every man lies the ability, but the will is lacking. In the lacking of will towards liberty, her death was merely a matter of time. Where once free men fought oppression, it is now welcomed and cheered as it is cast upon our fellow man. The initiation of force for the battle cry of fairness and equality is the battle cry of the cowardly - and has become the battle cry of this nation.
It is not fairness and equality that breeds freedom, but a strong back and a steady hand - hard work and dedication to the cause of freedom and liberty. The will and want to pull the self up from the depths is the inspiration from one man to the other to do the same.
Alas, the treasury has been pillaged, and the wealth of the nation distributed amongst those who choose to do less. They have become so accustomed. And with the destruction of the national wealth, comes the destruction of the personal wealth, for what good does wealth do if it is limited to one hard working free man?
Where the cries of freedom where once heard echoing across the nation, now only are whimpers of each according to his need from those according to their ability.
The freedom of the self has been eroded, and with it, liberty.
So today, we are witnessing liberty being laid to rest - not to solemn tears of the many, but to thunderous applause from around the world. In the hearts of those men across the nation who recognize the loss, those who feel the void deep within their soul, it is the task of these men to no longer endure as the powers of tyranny re-establish themselves. On the hallowed ground where we lay liberty to rest, in the hearts of these men, a pledge must be made to carry the banner of freedom - be not afraid to refresh the tree of liberty. For so long as the ember burns within the heart of a single man, the prospect that freedom will once again shine in the hearts of many is a possibility.
Passionately signed, and with the deepest of sympathy,
The reason? Oil prices have fallen to about $70 per barrel, taking money out of the hands of the producers. Money that they are using to build an offensive capability unprecedented in their regions.
OPEC is also urging Russia, Mexico, and Norway to join forces in an attempt to crush the gluttonous American nation who has become completely dependent on them for survival...
Almost like Rome and her dependence on Egypt for grain during the fall of the Republic...
OPEC and the other axis of oil countries are not alone... they have help from within the United States. The "Socialist" Party (i.e. the Democrats) leadership of Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Obama, etc. have delayed oil exploration expansion, a key bridge to developing energy independence in the United States. Their lust for power is matched only by their ignorance on domestic issues, such as energy, as a key to basic survivability of not just the nation, but the states which make it up. Free energy exploration has been denied, and the Untied States has become more and more dependent on her enemies for fuel. A nation that cannot fuel itself, and cannot feed itself, cannot defend itself... and as such, cannot be free.
If OPEC and the Axis of Oil puts the squeeze on the US, there will be a cry for war, similar to the battle cry of the Japanese toward the US when we cut their oil imports at the beginning of WWII. In this case, we are the land of the rising sun (though I would argue that it is very much setting). The leaders of the nation will bring us into a true war for oil...
The Federal government, and the Democratic Party have become so out of touch with reality that it puts the very existence of a free people in the Americas at risk. The Republican party is not doing much better - having become a mostly war mongering party, blindly "supporting troops" without thought to constitutionality of their cause - and in doing so, and by not leaving well enough alone with Russia, we have turned a valued ally into an enemy.
But why bring up the constitution - it is merely an historical document which laid the groundwork for the "Constitutional Socialist Democracy" which was birthed in 2008.
America is under siege. The enemies created by the authoritarian colonistic policies of the last 20 years have learned the lessons of political influence - and they are bearing them down upon the US. These are enemies, both foreign and domestic - and they are well versed in hatred of liberty! In response, the consumers of the Untied States are confused - running blindly to support regime change - which is really societal change to socialism. Meanwhile, the Russians are getting their just dessert - payback for the 1989 collapse of their Socialist Union; the Iranians are laughing all the way to the bank, as payback for the Shah. The One World capitalist government is collapsing, and the stage is being set for a One World Socialist take-over. You know it is coming when the GOP president is to the left of Hugo Chavez on economic issues... and the Democratic Candidate for presidency is already making appointments to discuss terms of surrender with the same. With a Socialist America, liberty throughout the world fails, giving birth to the age of worldwide authoritarian control - or continued conflicts for control.
All the while, the Federal Government is contemplating ANOTHER stimulus give-a-way. Another check, bought on credit. Another Trillion dollars towards a national debt... a nation that knows no more bounds... a nation whose treasury is being raped and pillaged by leaders, corrupt maggots all, blood lusting for continued and permanent power. Another solid marker along the highway of socialist reform in the United States.
And understand the meaning of these words:
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants" - Thomas Jefferson.

Alas - Palin has once again proven that she is not afraid to take on tough opponents - and instead challenged Tina Fey to a "Palin-off"
My vote: Palin was the victor!
In the first clip, she was pointed and direct - taking on Alec Baldwin directly - who ran out scared with Tina Fey.
In the second clip, she showed that she was a good sport with all the labels and parody spots being used by SNL to mock her.
She appealed to the young voters, possibly some undecideds who may not know the difference between Tina Fey and Sarah Palin.
Ultimately, I have to say that the Real Sarah Palin was her Real Self!
In this Rasmussen poll, Obama has a +4% lead over John McCain - but the poll would indicate that Democrats were polled at a higher rate of 40% to Republican's 33% - a 7% advantage.
Is there any wonder why Obama is ahead in the polls?
And what is NOT being reported by the polls - IBD polling reports Obama up by 5% nationally... which is what the headline would read across the nation - but what the headline SHOULD read is that 12% of Americans are UNDECIDED two weeks before the vote!
This is not the first time that polling has given false results. Consider the following historical image:
In 1948, polls showed Dewey as the favorite in all polls - unfortunately, the polls were conducted by telephone, and at that time, not every household had telephones. It was an historical fudge on the order of the 2000 call of Florida for Gore before voting was even finished in the panhandle!
These polls are a farce, being used to undermine a clear victory by John McCain by convincing the consumers of the nation that Obama had won, and that McCain must have stolen the election. The attempts by the media are clear, and disturbing. Confuse the people into anger - then send the angry people into the streets to protest our form of government - perhaps an attempt to kill the electoral college system in favor of a populist vote - which the founders where clearly against! Populism is the killer of freedom!
Powell - Mission Accomplished. Looks like you have got the job.
Unfortunately, I am still convinced that you bet on a losing horse.
The significance of a Powell endorsement - none. Anyone with half a brain can determine that this was a quid-pro-quo: something for something - You help me finish off McCain, and I'll give you a job.
But Secretary of Defense aside - it appears that there is a mad rush for Press Secretary, and 95% of mainstream journalists are applying for the job!
For instance, standing in the checkout line at the grocery store yesterday, I noticed a cover of Time Magazine which read: The Economy Trumping Race in Election, with a picture of Obama in two colors. I had to read the cover three times to make sure I was reading this right... Race is an issue in this election? I have YET to hear a Republican bring up race as an issue in this campaign...
In fact, it is the LEFT who is making statements like "Western Pennsylvania is Racist" - Democratic Representative Murtha.
Reading some of the other articles and/or questions on the cover of the magazine, I was further amazed: Why White Voters are Flocking to a Black Candidate on Economic Issues... etc, etc...
The issue of RACE is being injected into this election by the LEFT, not by the RIGHT - even though if we were to comment on it there would be an outcry by the left of the GOP doing the race bating!
The attempt, especially by placing it on the shelves in checkout counters is a horrible attempt to play on White Guilt - making "whites" believe that if we don't vote for Obama then our judgement was somehow related to repressed racist thoughts/feelings.
Journalists from coast to coast are attempting to paint this race 9pun intended) as being over - with Obama being the victor. What they don't tell you is that Reagan was down 13 points a month out against Carter, and George W Bush was down by 10 points with two weeks to go in 2004 elections.
The polls are in error - read my next posting for the complete story!

Obama's talking head in this video: There is nothing wrong with taking money from a group of people and giving it to the mass majority.
Taking money from me to give to my neighbor in the name of FAIRNESS... fair for whom?
This cuts to the core of the debate - do we want to embrace socialism in the United States?
We fought a 40 year cold war over this very issue. If JFK were alive today he would be slamming Obama and the Democratic Party for embracing the ideals of the Soviet Union - aka the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).
Truth be told, spreading the wealth does not help anyone. It creates dependencies on wealth redistribution at the lowest levels. It punishes ambition and success in business. Innovation is out the window for fear of additional tax burdens. These kinds of ideals are incentive to STOP PRODUCING at $249,999 to avoid taxation. If you make that one additional dollar, you instantly lose 50% of your income. So there is an incentive to stop production - even if it is in April - and you stop all business until January of the next year to avoid tax.
Obama's plan stifles economic growth because it incentivizes a cessation in production. Read that last line very carefully...
The Democratic Party is no longer what it purports to be - it is Socialist Light... working hardily to become the Socialist party, and bring ultimate dependence on government wealth redistribution to America.
It is wrong. The initiation of force, such as taking money for redistribution, is evil. This is the basic argument of free market thinking: The initiation of force is evil.
Obama's tax plan and socialist wealth redistribution plan is evil.
The $500 Billion was distributed. The gas prices continued to rise and the economy continued to teeter. The debt incurred did nothing to save the economy, just buy off the Plebs.
In March, I complained about Secretary of Treasury, Henry Paulson's, plan to "streamline" the economy by turning over the US treasury to the Federal Reserve. I stated:
"What Paulson has done here is set a dangerous precedent, in that the failure of private industry is no longer going to be allowed to happen. What is going to happen instead is that the government will subsidize failing businesses to keep them open, and keep their employees working... on an indirect government salary.The government was intended to be inneficient, so as to protect the people from spontaneous and bad legislature, which would lead to heavy burdens of Tyranny. Streamlining the government is an overt attempt to sidestep the intentions of the Founding Fathers.
THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE COLLAPSE OF THE FREE MARKET."
In June I warned about Socialists in the Democratic Party, and their intentions to nationalize the oil industry - following in the footsteps of Hugo Chavez. I suppose I should have also warned of the Socialists in the Republican Party, and their overall intention of seizing absolute power over the United States, and ultimately the world through markets, then politics.
In July I angrily declared my wavering allegiance to a socialist tending government, led by the most liberal Big Government President in the History of the United States, GW Bush.
"The treasury is being plundered to the thunderous applause of the masses. The burden to bail-out the vain and covetous leeches of our society is being placed on our own pocketbooks... We are being given marching orders by a government that won the vote, but represents no more than 1/4 of the population respectively - that marching order is "On to the Gallows!" - for in this day we are seeing the death of the last best hope in the world."In September, I warned of the dangerous parallel between the recent actions of the United States and the death of the Roman Republic in favor of the Roman Empire. It should also be noted that the same process was followed, legally, in Germany, leading to the rise of the Nationalist Socialist party. Extreme Debt, National Pride, Government Hand-outs and Bail-outs buying allegiance - then the rise of Socialist Hitler to cap it all off.
This month, I have discussed the increased occurrence of violation of the Federal Government's contract with America, the Constitution. The people's liberties are being cast aside in favor of consumerism. Consumerism, of course, is the rally cry for a one-world government supporting perpetual production, consumption, and taxes for political power.
"The value of the US dollar has decreased by 96% since the inception of the
Federal Reserve, the Federal Debt has gone from $0 to nearly $10 Trillion in the
same amount of time (and has continued to increase an average of $2.32 billion per day since September 28, 2007!) , and the Federal Government is making no plans to stop spending (especially under Obama). The taxpayers of the United States seems not too concerned about this debt, as we have been cultured into a "credit" state of mind, and distracted by commercialism and reality TV constantly demanding that we "watch and vote" - as if it made some sort of a difference in the world! The burden of the debt is over $30,000 per US citizen - more than a years pay for most Americans. Such a burden forces the citizenry into a state of "constant work" in order to survive - thus removing the mind of the masses."
And NOW, the Democrats are proposing ANOTHER $150 Billion in bail-out moneys to be paid to the states in order to continue funding failed social programs within those states. Luckily, House Republicans are fighting this additional bail-out - but we have seen how easily these clowns buckle if tax breaks are offered to archery shops and bicycle commuters.
Look, readers - I am going to be blunt. This crap has GOT to stop!
The federal budget last year was $2.6 Trillion - and next year's budget is over $3 Trillion. This DOES NOT include the $1.5 Trillion in bail-outs that the Federal Government has raped from the "treasury" in the name of "fairness" or "stabilization". This maneuvering has nothing to do with security or stability... it has everything to do with circumventing the Constitution, creating an expedient government, and granting that new government unlimited power - see Paulson's new role.
Our government has failed, and we are losing our liberties. The government is mired with corruption, greed, and incompetence - and they are using their skills to imprison us in debt - ensuring continued subjugation under this government take-over.
What power do we have to stop these actions?
We have a vote in November, but I fail to see an end with a new Congress. Many incumbents will come back to hen house, foxes all. And the new Congressmen in races across the United States show no drive and no ability to stop this monster.
We have the ability to petition our government for redress of grievances. Alas, no court would uphold a fight against what the government is doing.
And we have the right to take powers from the federal government, granting them to the states in special elections and state constitutional changes - challenging the federal government on their authority over state's sovereignty.
There is a dangerous trend. There seems to be no stop in sight.
So I ask, what are YOU willing to do to secure freedom?
Martin Luther King Jr, while detained in the Birmingham Jail:
"We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was "legal" and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was "illegal." It was "illegal" to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler's Germany. Even so, I am sure that, had I lived in Germany at the time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers. If today I lived in a Communist country where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I would openly advocate disobeying that country's antireligious laws."I would draw on the spirit of this rebellious attitude. I would use this quote to declare:
We are living in a New Socialist Society, where certain principles dear to freedom loving individuals, such as our civil liberties, are being suppressed - and I am openly advocating disobeying this countries coming anti-freedom laws! There will come a time when we all must chose - do what is right, or do what is easy. The Declaration of Independence reads: all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
Are you willing to stand up for this country, or live by the new "laws"? Is the loss of freedom so sufferable that you will openly applaud the actions of this federal government in your silence?Are there no true patriots left in this nation?
Is there no-one willing to do something?

If this lawsuit picks up any steam, it could raise the right kind of questions. Please watch the entire video to get a full understanding of the case behind the Barack Obama US Birth issue. If Obama was born in Kenya, he is not eligible to be on the ballot. He is hiding medical, birth, and college documents which indicate his true nationality - and documents have arisen in which he gave up his US citizenship for Indonesian citizenship, but never legally migrated back to the United States.
Interesting video bringing up interesting questions. Please watch the entire video and provide comment on the substance of the video. I would like to hear your thoughts on this issue.
After watching the video, I have to bring up the underlying theme of the last week and a half on my blog - The Constitution.
If, in fact, Obama is elected, and THEN is found to not have been eligible to run as a candidate, what a crisis we will find ourselves in! What would be our course of action? Immediate arrest for fraud? Impeachment by Congress? And if Obama is removed as an invalid choice, does that place Biden at the helm, or is the election negated because the ticket was ineligable to run?
If this is the case, then what standing does the Constitution have in the United States? Should Obama win, and this comes to fruition as truth, it could creat standing for Non natural born citizens to lead this country - or the world, which is the ultimate goal, anyway.
Where are the documents? Where is the proof? Are there valid questions surrounding this issue? Do we have the right to ask these questions of "the one"?
Again - please watch the video, and then comment accordingly.
The Lawsuit documents:http://www.obamacrimes.com/attachments/001_ObamaComplaint.pdf
There were two points in which you told me I was wrong: Obama's voting record and USA's Corporate Tax Rates. I stand by what I said during our conversation.
Here is a ranking that shows that Barrack Obama was ranked as the most liberal senator in 2007.
Websites on Business Tax Rates
A blog by a well informed friend of mine that I work with. He is not thrilled with McCain however is obviously less thrilled with Obama.
If we do not stand up for the most helpless in our society, then what possibly could be more righteous. Who could be more helpless of a group than our unborn children created in the image of God fashioned by His Hand? Do we dare support a group who openly 'destroys' life, which is a nice way of saying 'murders' our children?
Slap a man. . . it's an insult and a misdemeanor
Slap a child. . . it's abuse and a felony.
Slice open a child in the womb. . . it's unspeakable but called a Choice?
Slice open a million children EACH YEAR in the USA . . . Even barbaric or demonic are too kind!
For this, America is receiving God's wrath!
Or maybe we should stop calling ourselves Americans and start calling ourselves Ninevites! But even the Ninevites didn't kill their own children in the womb just those of their enemies! This stupidity of minimizing the importance of this genocide is unprecedented.
How can I face my Lord who created life and say to Him that I supported an organization or leader who openly supports destroying life? I will NOT! I might as well join forces with the very one who kills, steals and destroys. Do NOT be deceived - sugar coated poison still kills. No amount of charisma will make it okay to support an accomplice to epoch mass murder.
30+ million murdered unborn children just in the USA alone. More than Rwanda, Darfur, Hitler and Stalin combined. We live in the true Killing Fields. I will not ever bow or be fooled into supporting a leader who says that this is an acceptable policy. Nor will I ever believe that this is not the prominent crisis facing America. Anything else that I hear be it poverty, education, war in Iraq, drunk driving, global warming, gun rights, racism, the environment, the economy, gay rights, labor rights, nothing compares! Name any issue in the US that has caused the murder directly or even indirectly of 1.3 million souls in 2007. If there is such a cause let's put it above this issue of life and death. If not let us all repent and then stand up and stop this abomination!!!
Thanks Jay. You stated the case for life very eloquently, and it is greatly appreciated. Indeed, this is the number one issue facing our society today. That it is not the rally cry for the GOP is due, in part, because McCain's stance is not far from Obama's. Thank Heaven for Sarah Palin!
In the light of the new powers granted to an un-elected official, the Secretary of Treasury, which are unbound and unchecked allowing this individual with no responsibility to the voters to exercise unconstitutional force on the free market, we have to ask ourselves what rights we still retain.
When our founding fathers constructed the proposed union, they established the rules for an inefficient government to avoid tyranny, and followed up their governmental structure to ensure that the government understood that it's existence was at the pleasure of the citizens of the individual states... not the other way around.
The Bill of Rights was 10 of 12 proposed amendments, guaranteeing that certain rights were specifically cited as being "off limits" to the functioning of the supposed small federal government.
First, there was a protection of speech, press, practice of religion, protest, and protest against government for grievances.
Second, there was a protection of the individual's right to self preservation, by way of arming the self.
Third, there was a protection of private land - namely against occupying federal forces.
Fourth, there was a protection of the self against search and seizure.
Fifth, there was a protection of the self against self-incrimination, unreasonable trials, and protection of private property against governmental growth.
Sixth and Seventh, there was a protection of the self via jury of peers, and reasonable due process of law.
Eight, there was a protection of the self against unreasonable punishment and torture by the government.
Finally - the ninth and tenth amendments stated clearly that rights not explicitly called out did not mean that those rights were not rights of the people, and that any power not explicitly given to the federal government in the constitution was therefor a power retained by the STATES and the PEOPLE of the states.
These last two points are the most powerful of the entire constitution - declaring that the power of the states is superior to the power of the federal government. This includes the power of secession from the union, a right not discussed in the constitution, thus retained by the states and the people to decide.
Unfortunately, our country went to war over the right of secession once before... though history would indicate that it was a war over slavery, the truth being told, the war was over the right of a state to opt out of a union that fails to represent or operate on behalf of the people of that state.
As I was saying, in light of the recent NEW POWERS, unchecked powers, that the federal government has just granted itself over the people, the markets, and the states... we have to ask ourselves what rights we still retain, and what power we still have over the federal government... Truth be told, those rights and powers are gone. The answer in plain sight is none. But let's discuss technicalities, and the strength that they have.
Technically we have the right to secede from the union, to cast off a form of government that no longer represents the will of the people or the states. It is the last right of the people to keep the federal government in check - stating loud and clear that it is the people who retain the power, not the government. If the people of this nation, of these collection of states, understands that they are not subjects of the federal government but rather the power behind a once "more perfect union", we can better understand our rights and our purpose for living in this nation.
I would propose a show of force across the nation - a ratification of the collective state constitutions, citing the rights retained by the 9th and 10th amendments to the US Constitution, explicitly stating that the right of the state does, in fact, include the right to secede from the Federal Union of the United States. This is not a proposition that any governor is going to propose - it has to be a grassroots effort of the people of the collective states.
Once this effort comes to a head, the Supreme Court decision of Texas v. White (in which the 1869 SCOTUS ruling indicated that the Constitution did not permit states to secede from the Union - the decision was 5-3), will come into question. Fortunately for the argument of future state's rights of secession, the decision of the court included a statement:
The union between Texas and the other States was as complete, as perpetual,This indicates that if the multitude of the states, and the people of the states, indicated that the right of secession was a right retained by the states by the 9th and 10th amendment, then secession could be voted on by any given state and enacted against the federal government's rule.
and as indissoluble as the union between the original States. There was no place
for reconsideration, or revocation, except through revolution, or through
consent of the States.
The right to secession benefits each state, and the people of the United States, as a protection against an overbearing federal government. Unfortunately, the people of this great nation feel defenseless in the current state of the economy and the strict authoritarian federal government that has sprung up in the name of freedom. What freedom does a caged dog have?
Am I advocating a civil war? I would argue that we are in the midst of a "cold" civil war - a class war, a war of values, a war of power over the people... and the people are losing. I am not advocating violence.
What I am advocating is that the People of the United States understand their rights... understand that we do not have to live in a country of corruption and tyranny at the upper echelons. And we do not have to sit idly by as we watch the powers of a KING granted to an unelected Cabinet Member of the Executive Branch.
I am advocating that We the People of the United States of America take back this country - take back our personal rights, and stop living under constant supervision, regulation, and fear of our government!
I am advocating for the freedom of the people of the several states/regions to decide whether or not the Federal Government has grown beyond its usefulness.
Secession is not a resolution that should come lightly. It is a decision that brings into question the very existence of the United States, and the ties that have bound our people together. It is necessary, from time to time, to have the option to pressure the Federal Government into submission on behalf of the people.
Our politicians swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America - but I wonder if any have read it lately or understand what it actually says, or what it MEANS!?!

The first thing? Are your Super left tendencies so important that your "Unity" ticket would instantly federalize a generally state's issue, and instantly alienate 50% of Americans:
Obama's first order of business would be a law to reinstate partial birth abortion... What would that look like?
Obama will not yield on this issue - in his own words. If there are undecided voters out there, print out the above picture - see if that helps them change their mind. Refer them to Obama's position against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. And ask them if the federal government should be supporting infanticide.
Arguing over abortion in the first trimester is one thing... but being strongly in favor of killing children is another.
All men are endowed by their Creator to unalienable rights - among those is LIFE. When we cease to follow Natural Law and Natural Order, we cease to exist as a civil society!
Obama - too radical for the White House!

We have to ask ourselves what values we hold most dear, what values we intend on "clinging to" in these times of 'lesser plenty', and what this may mean to how we conduct business, family, and life in general!
If one were to look at the Dow Jones, which is the canary to our economy, you would notice the importance of crossing the threshold of the 8000 point mark today. The 8000 mark is the exact mark where the United States would be had we been witness to steady and responsible market growth.
The Technology Boom in the late 1990's began a perceived era of prosperity - however, this era soon met it's demise as dotcom businesses proved unreliable and unstable on the market of industry. This stagnation was capped by the attacks of 9/11, which began an era of uncertainty in the US markets - and the world markets, as nations ceased to be defined by maps. This instability brought into question the reason and logic behind "business without borders", and the ideals of a fully global market without national interest. In fact, the US citizen ceased to exist, replaced with the title "consumer". When our nation was attacked, our marching orders were not to act as a Militia and strengthen our defenses - rather it was "keep shopping", an order to continue to purchase items made in China in order to stabilize the world markets.
This Unstable period saw excuse for the Bush administration to increase the government, and governmental spending to record sizes - But he is not fully to blame - Clinton's policies of credit in the 90's set the stage for this government take-over.
Alas - here we are today... cutting the fat from the rumps of the market - and returning to values that would be reasonable under stable economic growth, stable market growth.
In these times of "less plenty", we have to look at the signs around us, and ask if we really are seeing a depression. In the 70's, unemployment rates were 11%. Today they hover just above 5-6%. In the 30's, through the Great Depression, unemployment rates were in excess of 25%. As unemployment rates rise, we should not worry until the rates hit 10-15%.
We can little claim that we are in a depression when businesses like Circuit City and Best Buy continue to sell entertainment goods and personal communication devices... as long as we continue to operate as consumers, the market will survive.
What we will see is a need for jobs - an increase in the need to manufacture some goods of our own. Perhaps we will see the market bring a return to small town America, where mom and pop shops are preferred to Wal-Mart's "China Discount" Store. Who can be certain what direction we will decide to pursue.
Only one thing is for certain - some people are losing their shirts today. Those people need to pull themselves up from the bootstraps and decide not to be victims. The economy is sound - the basis of America is sound - we are just seeing a correction from a life of excess to a life of comfortable stability. Perhaps this is a good time to get to know your family again. Have dinner with them tonight, around the table. Turn off the TV. Remember what it is that makes America strong.
If you are having trouble at the end of the month, I hear you can give Obama a dollar in taxes and he will give you back some "change"...

Saturday Night Live has an infamous history as of late regarding politics - coming down hard on Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, and the show's political voice is clearly left when former cast-members like Chevy Chase hope that the show goes further and "decimates" our next VP.
However, sometimes they get it right... as was the case in their representation of the $700 Billion Wall-Street Welfare plan. There has been much controversy surrounding this direct slam on the Democratic Party for it's actions regarding the bailout, as well as directly attacking Pelosi, Barney Frank, GW Bush, and labelling George Soros as "the Owner of the Democratic Party". They did a great job of calling out the leadership of this nation, and showing how ridiculous such "welfare" plans are and how Democratic ideology actually is the root cause of this entire mess.
If this gets high play, perhaps some on the left might question the truth behind the cause of the economic crisis. There is a long list of causes dating back to the creation of FDIC in 1933 and Fannie Mae in 1938 all the way through to the Clinton and Bush administrations' enforcement of CRA and the "ownership" society. This has nothing to do with the free market (as Obama would indicate, as he did in last night's debate) - our financial markets have not been "deregulated" and anyone who claims so is dishonest. The real key has been a fiat paper currency that is managed by a central bank who has continually tried to eliminate risk but has instead fostered malinvestment, bubbles, and increasing leverage throughout. The solution is to defend individual property rights, free banking and the gold standard.
I am willing to predict that Obama/Biden pick up huge victories in NY and California, giving them a 2 million vote spread in the popular vote - bringing about the same arguments we saw after 2000, where Gore won the popular vote and Bush won the electoral vote, sparking disputes whether the electoral vote is representative of the will of the people.
In fact, the electoral vote is what keeps this country a Republic - and saves us from a mob-ruled Democracy in the Federal Government.
Barack Obama is going to have a tough race over the next few weeks. There is finally some more in depth reporting regarding his questionable associations, his economic policy, and his record. Obama's headlines this week include ACORN voter registration fraud on the order of tens of thousands in battleground states, Breaking his promise to his wife regarding smoking, Democrat tactics (including hacking e-mail accounts) in intimidating supporters of McCain and Undecided Voters... Dissenters of Barack Obama are going to spend the next few weeks ripping the Junior Senator apart, and it will be enough to swing the undecided voters in the traditionally red states back in to the McCain/palin camp.
McCain will take Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina by about 5%.
McCain will take Ohio and Colorado by 2%.
It will be tight, but the negative message about Obama is only going to be muted by Obama pumping tens of millions into counter ads attempting to repair his image - money that has been questionably raised - breaking numerous federal election laws... which will be made well known.
The upside is that this will all be over in a few weeks, and we will see the uneasiness in the markets settle down a bit, and the country will begin to move forward in one direction or the other.
Under Obama, we can be sure that the markets will hit about 8000 as investors pull out their money to avoid the "threshold of wealth" in the sights of Obama's "fairness tax". Small business and large business alike will be motivated to hide funds or under-perform to avoid the higher taxes. There will be a motivation for restraining business growth, whcih will lead to the elimination of actual economic growth. Jobs will disappear, unless the Federal Government creates a jobs program for the Green Energy "industry" which will actually be the Green Energy Administration - and jobs will be under the Federal Government Payroll.
Under McCain, there is at least some hope for allowing the American people the opportunity to fix their situation as part of a reprise of personal responsibility in spending, health, and energy. There will be tax breaks for all, spending reductions across the board, and an end to Bush's Big Government Boom! There is some hope with McCain's policy of ousting corruption in lending, lobbying, and leadership that the government will shrink, taxes will stay low, and local governments will feel the pressure to take over where the federal government has intruded on their authority.
There will be no unity in 2008. If McCain wins, the angered and trained Obamanites will partake in the practice of civil disobedience. Leftist Fascism will be at an all time high through Code Pink, ACORN, and Move-On groups trying to quiet the conservatives/Republicans from conducting a clean-up operation in our government. It will be no better from the left than it is now, under Bush - because those on the left HATE anyone who disagrees with them. If Obama wins, there will be tactics from the right to stall any of his policies from becoming law. There will be a massive failure of the government to operate under these extreme bills and regulations (which is why the congressional and Senate races are more important than the Presidential race).
Either way, we are at a societal crossroads in America. The left has become so left that socialist/communist would be a compliment to them. The right has been abandoned for the middle-left, and those who remain on the right are radically outside of common thinking, even if they are spot on classically for American Politics.
Assuming I am right, and McCain/Palin wins, there is hope that the future of the country will begin it's pendulum swing back to the center, giving hope for true reform in government towards a smaller, less authoritarian "master" federal government.
Assuming I am wrong and this nation continues left, there could be a collapse of the Union under the pressure of the overbearing federal government - leading to possible civil war, or in the least a new form of a confederation between states or regions. What happens next in America is anyone's guess... but as it was once said: Keep your powder dry. Save your resources and be prepared for anything, because uncertainty is staring us in the face!

Over the weekend, the United States ceased to exist as a free nation, as a nation of free men.
This statement has been closer to reality for some time, but the events of the last week have ensured an end to the free society which was so nobly defended by the blood of our forefathers - the same blood that now boils in my veins.
The United States Government, under the guise of security in the financial markets, has simply cast aside the Constitution - a document which identifies the limited government which was allowed by the free peoples of this nation to be established with the limited roles of providing for the common defense of this nation and it's people - and have instituted in it's place an entity with limitless power over finance, business, banking, and the very core of the market system.
This nation ceases to be a Republic, and has now boldly stated that Republics are unnecessary - instead relying on a socialist democracy where the mob rules and the government remains in power of business, jobs, and the once free market. Free thinking minds need not apply - the United States of Freedom has officially gone bankrupt.
Free thinking men continue to do nothing, insisting instead that it is actually a good thing for an entity of once limited power to have unlimited power over businesses - and now has the ability to cease failing businesses for the cause of financial security.
Benjamin Franklin noted: "Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety"
So what about those of us who acknowledge the error in the government - what choice do we have but to dissolve the political bands between ourselves and the Federal Government - to declare that we are the Harbinger of Liberty, the protectors of our inalienable rights! Experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
Our Federal Government has violated the contract in which WE ALLOW THEIR EXISTENCE. They have proclaimed themselves rulers of their people, masters of the land, and have shown intent to bring slavery and military force upon her people.
The Federal Government is guilty by their own admission of the following:
*It has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies with the purpose of combat against citizens in protest against them
*It has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power, usurping jurisdiction from rightful local citizens.
*It has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving its Assent to their Acts of unwanted Legislation:
- For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us
- For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent
*It has violated the trust of the people, conducting unreasonable search and seizure of persons and property without just cause or due process under the guise of Homeland Security and the "patriot act"
*It has moved to establish itself as superior in all matters where rights and laws are naturally reserved for the people or the states, including but not limited to marriage, education, and local security
*It has established evidentiary proof against itself to be called into question its intention of treason against the good will of the free people of the nation
All these actions occur in violation of the contract between the people and the government. We are under siege, yet we remain distracted and indifferent to action.
My recent near detention at the SeaTac airport in Seattle Washington emboldened me to action. I refused to cooperate with additional screening three hours after I went through security as the TSA agents conducted "random searches" of citizens at my gate. My refusal was on the grounds of the 4th amendment protection against unreasonable search or seizure without probable cause - unless they could present me with a warrant or some other document authorizing such a search of my secure person. They were unable to provide a warrant, and unwilling to show me an authorizing document to conduct this additional and unreasonable full body search. Their response to my protest was to call in their management, who was equally unable to cite any directive or authority to conduct such a search, and when fully frustrated that they could not beat me in a battle of constitutional wits, they threatened to have me arrested. I answered back that there is no need to show unnecessary force, when all I am requesting is documentation of their right to search my person. Needless to say, after a 25 minute stand-off, I took down their names and their position and informed them that i intend to file a full complaint - and allowed them to perform their search under my protest so that I could board my plane. I am currently investigating legal action against the TSA for failure to provide warrant or authority to conduct unreasonable searches under force.
And I call into question any citizen who is unwilling to question the actions of our government. What has this society become? Am I mourning the death of the Republic while others are celebrating the birth of whatever our nation has become?
We should never forget that a government that ceases to act on behalf of the people becomes an enemy of the people. This is just as true today as it was in 1776 - when our Founding Fathers - those brave souls - proclaimed that enough was enough.

Palin struck back with the following:
Sarah Palin is right. Once the next President gets in office the fingers are going to be pointed at him! So your strategy had better be more than pointing fingers to bring the country together.
Real change is a reform in government - not a societal change of leftist policies and hate politics - there is no "Unity" in that... merely a political catch phrase. Obama has no record of Unity, and is openly disgusted by conservatives and Republicans in General. So much for "Change"

The plan that she will enforce is a plan that will make the United States dependent on no one other than ourselves for energy. That includes a phased set of milestones, not a complete and immediate withdrawal from carbon based products (immediate withdrawal seems to be a common trend to Obama/Biden)
The plan will play out thusly:
1. Increase production of America's oil reserves - including shale. This will allow the current infrastructure to survive the transition to alternative energy. Obama/Biden see the need for alternative energy, but they refuse to admit that their policy will be grossly ineffective if they do not sustain the current infrastructure as we build the bridge to the future.
2. Invest in the capital of America's Future - Alternative Energy. Begin a process to incentivize car companies to steer away from Gasoline engines, tending towards Natural Gas or Electric. Establish an incentive program to encourage households to install solar panels - enough to reduce the need for residential power by a large percentage across America. Then begin to convert power usage from coal and oil to wind, solar, and the remaining nuclear plants built to initially sustain the energy system.
Palin is undoubtedly and undeniably the perfect candidate to take on energy independence. McCain giving her full reign in this arena was the best move for America's energy future.
In contrast, and as a side note, Biden's role as VP would be to council Obama, but let him be President... what kind of an answer is that?
Regardless - it is clear that Palin will be the leader in Energy Independence starting on day one as Vice President of these United States.

The Huff even went as far as placing a video compilation of Sarah's debating skills, after targeting her style as "just words" with no substance:
Perhaps this is the Liberal Left's way of some pre-debate damage control. Lowering the bar on Biden while suggesting that even if Palin wins, it is not a worthy feat...Unfortunately, McCain has allowed the leftist media to use the last month to define Sarah Palin as an ignorant 2nd rate leader not worthy of her PTA post - I think they have another thing coming.
My hope is that Palin creams Biden, as she did the gentlemen from Alaska in the clip above - and once this is complete, she then takes the vigor to the campaign trail, and that the McCain campaign let's Sarah Palin be what I know she can be: A fighter, A Reformer, and the Next Vice President of These United States.
Maybe THAT is the GOP October Surprise.
