SEPARATING FROM THE CONSTITUTION
Re: Mark Hyman’s The Plan to Silence Dissent:
Again I am shocked at how the government bureaucracy can devise
outrageous and wildly expensive plans to deliver what no one
wants at the expense of the people’s money and freedom. Our
government seems to have completed their separation from the
control of the Constitution and the will of the people.

“Obviously, the most efficient way to control the nation’s broadband platforms is to control those who operate them.”
Drones “living” in the Soviet Slave Republics enjoyed a free
press. The commissars attached great value to a free press, so
much so that freedom of the press was written into their
Constitution. Of course, the Party
controlled the newsprint and the presses.

Not surprising. Broadcasters better be getting out the word as

THE GREATEST THREAT
Re: Andrew Cline’s Thankful for Obama:
Most of the commentary here discusses Obama in the context of the
damaging domestic effects of his policies…how we are being
governed….but I am afraid that the damage he is attempting to
do to the way Americans live our lives pales when compared to the
long term damage that he and his people are doing on the
international front. We can survive and correct our internals but
our enemies beyond that Obama seems not to acknowledge pose the
greatest threat to us over time.

Re: William Tucker’s Living the Liberal Crack-up:
Thank you for a fine article. The only dissonance to a Republican
victory is the thought of a political hack like John Boehner (and
he is a hack by any definition of the word) as Speaker. That
would make Nancy Pelosi look like Pericles.

While I agree with much of what William Tucker writes, his comment that “forcing people to buy health insurance is unconstitutional” is another example of what is increasingly becoming a fantasy on our side. I’m sorry, but that ship sailed decades ago. How is it any more unconstitutional to force people to buy health insurance than it is to force people to fund their own retirements via Social Security?
The only difference between this and any other tax is that it
will be paid directly to (hopefully) private companies, rather
than being directed through the federal government, and that it
will actually provide a tangible benefit in return. This amounts
to slim pickings for a constitutional challenge.

Pretty nice slam of the dems. Democratic failure is not going to truly help the Republicans or the county until the Republicans face their failures and repent.
How about a few pieces about how the Republicans screwed up by being bought and paid for by the Banksters and others and a few ideas about how they can avoid it happening again.

We who love liberty might well feel most confident at this
moment. Yesterday, however, I saw the University of Alabama v.
Auburn game. Alabama arrived full of confidence and even began
showboating in the first quarter. Bottom line: Through
over-confidence, they nearly lost the game.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
