flushing the constitution…

Being a fledgling blogger, I get excited over little things like when someone links to an article I’ve written. Well yesterday I got excited because someone commented on my site and they were total strangers from who knows where. And it seems not a crazy or was it an accident… Here is a link to one of many wonderful posts on Orwell’s Dreams…

“I will — listen now — I will cut taxes — cut taxes — for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class.” (Obama’s acceptance speech at the 2008 Democratic convention.)

Whether it was to save himself from being labeled a liar for raising everyone’s taxes or to hustle ObamaCare through Congress, on ABC News last September Obama scoffed at the idea that the “individual mandate” is a tax.

Congress inserted the “individual mandate” into ObamaCare citing its power to regulate interstate commerce under the Commerce Clause.

Substituting for Rush Limbaugh behind the “Golden EIB Microphone,” Mark Steyn recently did a very funny riff on how the entire Constitution has been distilled down to Commerce Clause. Our dear old Constitution is just one giant Commerce Clause; every power flows from it. Upshot: Congress can do whatever it wants.

prop 8, goats, sheep and more

It seems that after deciding to become the Libertarian Buddha instead of the Conservative Buddha, I have jumped straight into an ideological quagmire of subtle and incremental and/or brash beach-blanket smashes of debate. Debate about whether or not a large percentage of Libertarians have the fag gene or all Conservatives crave long nights with shaven sheep.  Personally I just enjoy “Goats who tight rope walk with Monkeys on their back”  Any way the MNRobot had some really good things to say about this debate since it did originally start out on the subject of Gay Marriage Rights and Prop 8! HeHaw… But really,  should not our collective fight at this point, be against Obama and his administrations tyranny?

I’ve recently read several bloggers posting in  what can only be described as another one of those “I’m a Libertarian and anyone who criticizes Libertarians, no matter how stupid those Libertarians acted, is a big fat poopy head” arguments. The funny thing was the topic wasn’t even Libertarians in general. The topic was the California gay marriage ruling by some wacko homosexual activist judge.

2: Madison continues: “Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” … Remember that line?  There are a few points missing from your arguments. I’ll start with those.

1: James Madison, the Father of our Constitution, clarified the authority of the federal government in the Federalist Papers #45: “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined.”

The Federal Government is growing beyond our control. This is the leviathan we fight. Define it as that. Our problem is with the Federal Government, if you have a problem in your State, battle it in your State either now or after the fight to get the Federal Government reeled back in.
Keep Reading Please…

Classical liberalism is a political ideology that developed in the nineteenth century in Western Europe, and the Americas. It is committed to the ideal of limited government and liberty of individuals including freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and free markets.  Notable individuals who have contributed to classical liberalism include Jean-Baptiste Say, Thomas Malthus, and David Ricardo. There was a revival of interest in classical liberalism in the twentieth century led by Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek and other economists.

The phrase classical liberalism is also sometimes used to refer to all forms of liberalism before the twentieth century. Some conservatives and libertarians use the term classical liberalism to describe their belief in the primacy of economic freedom and minimal government. ….  

“I have to admit that I as so many people I had not a clue when it comes to the history of Liberalism and Conservatism and the battle over less and more. I have now discovered that terms we use every day like Liberal and Conservative had different meanings in tha past … The following is a very interesting article on people who least want Liberty and set philosophy for progressive beliefs today….History holds the key my brothers!  This article is a History of the opposite… “

As per the  The Libertarian Buddhist…. “So many people idolize this guy (as well as other murderous thugs like Che, Chairman Mao and others) that I thought it would be a good idea to repost this article.”  Enjoy. Read on….

America was once the “land of the free,” but one can hardly say that with a straight face anymore. Only a politician could pull it off. The limited government gifted us by our Founders, has become the largest, most expensive, most powerful central government man has ever known.   More good reading… from the CL

you go rush

Love him or loathe him, he nailed this one right on the head……….

By Rush Limbaugh:

I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound. No one is really talking about it either, because you just don’t criticize anything having to do with September 11. Well, I can’t let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country. If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you’re going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.. If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.

Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you remarry. And there’s a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits 18, those payments come to ascreeching halt.

Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it’s not enough. Their deaths were tragic, but for most, they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Soldiers put themselves in harms way FOR ALL OF US, and they and their families know the dangers.. (Actually, soldiers are put in harms way by politicians and commanding officers.)

We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11 families are getting. In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now asking for compensation as well.

You see where this is going, don’t you? Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50 years of entitlement politics in this country. It’s just really sad. Every time a pay raise comes up for the military, they usually receive next to nothing of a raise. Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East while their families have to survive on food stamps and live in low-rent housing.  Make sense?

However, our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. Many of you don’t know that they only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus. They do not receive Social Security on retirement because they didn’t have to pay into the system. If some of the military people stay in for 20 years and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm’s way receives a pension of $15,000 per month. I would like to see our elected officials pick up a weapon and join ranks before they start cutting out benefits and lowering pay for our sons and daughters who are now fighting.

“When do we finally do something about this?” If this doesn’t seem fair to you, it is time to forward this to as many people as you can.

ron paul

This is a in your face whipping post. Ron Paul for President in 2012. That is if we are still here, you know after the Mayan Calender black holes and we are all sucked into a vortex of delicious Mexican food, drowned in Verde sauce, pummeled by the beak of the rooster and finally solidified in cheese dip for eternity.  But just in case that does not happen I will be spending some good time campaigning for Dr. Paul in the next days to come and I’ll start by linking to a very good article posted by that conservative dare-devil “The Classic Liberal”

“David Stockman served as a US Representative (R-MI) from 1977 until resigning on January 27, 1981, to accept appointment as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan. Stockman is considered one of the most powerful OMB directors ever”   Click to continue…

Monday is here again and the potential of the new work week is flying a banner above my hopeful forehead.  Hope that comes from a mindset it seems I’ve had all my life. Years of introspective analysis leads me to surmise that for the most part we as a society are split down the middle, Liberal/Conservative, pessimist/optimist etc, etc, and may be, possibly biologically? Could it be due to an almost genetic like tattoo given to us at birth. I’ve often pondered this possibility and yes I know, of course there is always the convert,  and the constant youthful desire for utopia, but when it gets down to the movers and shakers that take our world politics seriously, the adults that draw a line in the sand are choosing sides and a large portion go thirsty for power… Liberalism, the power-hungry Progressive, the Communist control freaks that are giving their all to undo our conservative stance, the other side longing for the opposite, our coalition  that prays for a course derived from being left alone, independent of the whims of tyrannical dreamers.

This being said it saddens me  to conclude that a logical discourse,  a logical analogy and example is not historically available as an effective sword for persuasion. I understand that it makes like minds feel good to come to agreement with their like-minded brothers and rightly so but where lays the course for an effective exorcism? A shot giving release and freedom from the doctor of truth that could help these power-hungry fascists. They that cannot sleep unless I personally quit eating salt.  Point being do you think I might be on to something when I suggest that it goes much deeper, deeper than social circumstance, more than being stuck with the philosophy of our families ?  In the weeks to come we should research this idea and see if any real biological science has been prescribed through thesis.

Post Script… Why would anyone want their Government to own their property via property tax, why would anyone via historical record trust Government to manage anything other than the limited doctern provided from the brilliance of our constitution, why would anyone want to control other people unless it was for obvious intrusions such as initiatory use of coercion. This post begs out for feedback as I am at a loss.  As so many of my contemporary heroes I am not advocating violence, on the contrary just proof of anything else in history that has been as effective. i.e. our own very violent revolution.
