Time to take our country back, Part 2

By John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer

There are steps we can take to return the United States to its founding principles.

For starters:

1.) It is necessary to change the views of the low information voter. The Obama administration controls these people and purchases their votes by providing their benefits for “free.” The left are professionals in the creation of class warfare/envy. Welfare must be ended except in very specific, very limited cases. A healthy economy, free of the burdens deliberately placed by the left on enterprise and job creation can provide the necessary employment. The patriots of this country must be as vocal and as persistent as the leftists by demanding people work for what they receive.

2.) Overreach by the Executive branch, with its czars and bureaucracies must be brought under control. How do we do that? By electing politicians to office who will do what they say abide by the law and base decisions on constitutional grounds. Our last chance may be in the 2016 Election.

3. Understand that whatever the cost, we must fight to reclaim our liberty. We need to make our voices heard, in the media, in the community, in the voting booth. It is time to speak up whenever we must and say “No, you are wrong.” Silence can no longer be an option.

4. Start the conversation and don’t be afraid of what anyone may say. Verbal attacks that have been the hallmark of progressives must be met with verbal attacks of our own. If they want to talk over you, talk louder. If they want to ignore you, get in their face. Our President once said they he would bring a gun to a knife fight. I don’t think he meant it literally, but we need to do the same. Inform yourself, inform others however you can.

5. Be willing to depend upon others as quality people can make for a fine support group. You may be able to support one another to move forward. Talk to family, friends and importantly pastors and other people of faith. All our freedoms are from God and those who believe and follow the word can be a great assistance. If your church believes in the Bible, word for word, the help which can be derived from faith may be greater than you could ever imagine. Remember that it is not the responsibility of others to take care of, support or pay the tab for anyone unless they choose to do so.

6. Individually, we must start with our communities, our city councils. A collective voice can change things at the community level. Everyone must be included and neighbors must work together to make things better for all.

7. ALL people must be included in the Conservative conversation as we reveal and fight liberal bias. The Republican Party has shown that it cannot be trusted to advance the conservative agenda. Our country is an amalgam of all heritage, so why not built on that.

8. Ignore the media. Both the mainstream media and academia are profoundly liberal/socialist and can never be depended upon for the truth. Gather news and information from people who think as you and want to help in retaking our country.

In the world today there is endless persecution of people of faith, of conservatives, of anyone not toeing the socialist-progressive line. But even some progressives will acknowledge the fact that the tide is turning. People are beginning to understand that freedom has been stolen by power hungry legislators. Patriots understand that it is their leadership that will allow Americans to survive the socialist agenda of the Obama Administration. It is time to stand up and fight back. The United States must return to the days of individual liberty and responsibility. We will be silent no longer.

The American Dream ended (on November 6th, 2012) in Ohio.

by An American Veteran. Semper Fi

The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.

A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Union Members, Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America. The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch… The Pit Bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order.

Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own home states, and Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing “post Sandy” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to Mother Teresa status. (Aside: with the way the polls were run, he didn’t need any help!) People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates & not shy, reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.

Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt” and political correctness.

Where will we be? Part 1

By John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer

In less than two years the citizens of the United States will elect a president. Two centuries have witnessed the election of honest and patriotic men, some having been called upon to serve during times of great national hardship. Many of America’s presidents have achieved a record of which they can be proud. Until now.

Barack Obama has exposed the United States and the American people to unnecessary danger. He has taken it upon himself to apologize to our enemies for what he believes to be the nation’s sins and shortcomings. Such are the arrogant and reprehensible acts of a traitor, not a president. He has embraced Islam in an effort to convince Americans that the sub-human practitioners of a diseased religion have been important contributors to the history of the United States. “I know that Islam has been an integral part of this country,” claims Obama. And he’s right. The first confrontation of America’s navy was with the death dealing, Muslim, Barbary Pirates. Hence the mention of Tripoli in the Marine Hymn.

Is it his Muslim father who imbued Obama with his visceral hatred of the liberties that limit his tyranny and with his deep seated fear of free enterprise and contempt for our inalienable rights, all because they have been granted us by God and not by him? Either Obama does not understand or does not care that only a free society is capable of growing. The nanny state interference inculcated in our President by life-long communist Frank Marshall Davis is capable only of destroying societies and nations as a century of examples has made clear.

Is Our President a Muslim, a Marxist, or both? The two are not at odds. Muslims worked with Nazis during WWII, why not with communists now? Revcom, a communist organization and Al Qaeda were both represented in Ferguson. And both were absolved of wrongdoing by Obama and his yes man, Eric Holder.

Beginning with Holder, Obama has created a pattern of elevating incompetent or tyrannical people to positions of power. Apparently the President did not learn in grade school that the government works for us, we don’t work for the government. Indeed fewer of us are working at all. For everything Obama believes is based upon the American people being dependent on government. Redistribution and collectivism will tear apart the free enterprise system and eventually result in the collapse of capitalism. In this way, leeches that derive sustenance from the government will multiply as they are catered to by the socialists in charge. It’s freeloading which has resulted in decades of votes for those who promise more and more, all for “nothing.”

Despots have practiced socialist/communist rule for centuries. Look to the Soviet Union, Cuba and China as recent, bloody failures. Obama claims to be working for the middle class, working for the people. Yet if things don’t change soon, the middle class will be gone. It will be like the oligarchs of the Soviet Union versus the peasants. And don’t doubt for a moment that our vacation going, golf playing president and his shameless, mooching wife believe us to be the peasants.

We are living under the tyrannical whims of a despot utterly dismissive of the Constitution. Laws that limit his authority and abuses of power are ignored with impunity for none of the cowards in Congress will dare take a stand lest he be labeled a racist.

The American people have survived wars and the treachery of traitors. In our history we have suffered many setbacks, but the character of its people and the unsurpassed strength of its Constitution have always permitted the nation to come back stronger than before. How much longer will we allow the criminal enterprise that is the Obama Administration to test the limits of our patience?

One Man and One Woman-Even in Indiana

By Karen Lees, guest writer

For the last 5500+ years, wedding ceremonies have been sacred—set apart as holy, and reserved only for those who qualify…one man and one woman. Since the beginning of time, it has been the absolute standard as a foundation of families, of our society, and of civilization as we know it. All civilizations that have violated that standard have eventually fallen, often with nothing left to show for their existence but rubble. As the rest of the world looked on in horror, all they had left were the hard lessons to be learned for their neighbor’s devastating mistakes.

There is absolute truth. Aspiring to absolute truth gives us a reason for living. Within a given culture, truth cannot be truth for one person and not for another. It is a standard. If we cannot agree on a set of absolutes, we cannot live peacefully as a society.

At one time, we all lived in agreement on our set of absolutes. And we all agreed on the source of those absolutes. We used those absolutes for the basis of our laws. But somewhere along the way, some among us refused the hard lessons learned from the rubble of other civilizations. Just as it says in Ecclesiastes 1:9, there is nothing new under the sun—these mistakes are not new ones.

Being manipulated or coerced to become an active participant in violating one of those absolute truths violates the very foundation of life. No one has the right to take away another’s beliefs any more than they have the right to take their away their lives. We are born with a right of belief, as the founding fathers put it, it is inherent or self-evident. This is why the 1st amendment is so important. And is worth dying for. To quote a line from Braveheart, “If you don’t have something worth dying for, you’re not really living.”

The Indiana business owners refused to be a participant in a ceremony celebrating something that, to them, is considered repugnant. It went against their conscience. In our society, and under our Constitution, they have an unalienable—God Given– right to do that, or not do that. But that decision is theirs and no one else’s. Certainly not the government’s.

If a homosexual couple wants to get married, that’s their decision to make. But they cross the line into violating another’s right of conscience when they coerce them, by fear and intimidation, to participate unwillingly. If we must live in fear of punishment for our thoughts and beliefs, the very foundation of our freedom is null and void.

In Genesis 19, the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were so given over to their vile, unnatural lust, it caused them to want to break down the door of their neighbor, Lot, demanding that he and his family and guests participate in the very thing that was repugnant to them all. And you know what happened to them.

This is the exact reason we are having this discussion today. Those of a different belief are not only demanding we accept and approve, they are demanding we participate!

The absolutes of our foundations are crumbling. Can we learn from the mistakes of others who came before us? Or when the legal dust settles, will the history of our society be found scattered among the rubble of past civilizations?

The Transformation of America

By Ed Wood, staff writer

What is happening to our nation, once the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave? Nothing is free anymore and the exercise of bravery is perpetually discredited by the cowardly. Compromise and negotiation seem to be more popular, especially as they relate to our enemies.

In the Constitutional Republic given the American people by the nation’s Founders some 238 years ago, powers granted the government were specific and limited. As a result, We the People enjoyed great freedom, having the right to do all things not constitutionally prohibited by our government. Today, it seems, we cannot do anything unless it is specifically permitted by our government. See the difference? I challenge you to name one human activity that isn’t controlled by one government edict or another!

Last year there were 10,637 bills introduced into the houses of Congress, plus an untold number of state laws and regulations. We violate them every day without even knowing they exist. They make criminals of us all.

In the private sector, incompetence leads to failure. Not so in the public, or government, sector. The reason is simple. In the private sector, there is accountability. Either it works, or it is replaced by something, or someone that does. In the public sector, there is very little accountability.

For example, in response to the Veterans Administration scandals, newly appointed VA Secretary Robert McDonald testified before Congress that after a thorough internal investigation of the more than 340,000 VA employees, 900 of them have been terminated. All of this supposedly occurred since he took office.

In reality, there were only 8 VA employees actually fired for incompetence. And it’s a safe bet they were permitted to retain full benefits, regardless of their job performance.

When the President stated that he wanted to “transform America,” he didn’t say “transform the American government.” He said “transform America.” To Barack Obama, that meant changing it from its roots, its history, its culture, and making a mockery of its  exceptionalism.

How’s that been working out for ya’?
