Americans have a very special message for the federal government: Don’t tread on me.That’s the takeaway from a new poll from the Pew Research Center in which, for the first time in at least the last two decades, a majority of Americans say Washington actually poses a threat to their “personal rights and freedoms.”And it’s not just tea party supporters, Republicans and gun owners. Nearly two-fifths of Democrats (38 percent) say the government is a threat to them personally, as do 45 percent of non-gun owners.
No matter what freedoms are lost or people suffering under government mandates, comprised by non elected people,Obama´s supporters will stick by him until there´s proof that he´s failed on redistribution.
Black people who are the most responsible for obama getting elected have seen negligible improvements in their stock if life while billions have been pumped to his rich liberal WHITE cronies.
The Democrat Party and it´s supporters pose a bigger threat to the future of America and it´s citizens than all Islamists combined. The damage that Democrats have done and are continuing to do may be insurmountable. Massive civil disobedience may be the only answer. All we have between us and the total overthrow of our government is a handful of GOP members in House and Senate, plus the GOP governors of the red states.
Who would have thought that the Gadsen Flag would be a rallying symbol against tyranny once again in this country. Each time I see it I am heartened to know that there are others out there who understand what is happening to our freedoms. Display it proudly. It is a great conversation starter and a source of support for others.
Just look at what goobernment does for us. Increases the cost of everything (gas, food, insurance, etc.) and offers nothing except decreased freedom (can´t buy real gas, can´t buy affordable insurance but get ´taxed´ if we don´t). Goobernment at all levels tells us what we can eat, drink, reduces our rights in our home (can’t smoke even in a home, yet deviant sex is a ‘privacy’ right). Our goobernment is the greatest threat to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness we face. No communist threat or Muzzie threat even comes close. It is sad to say but we are nearing a point when we must decide, are we to be slaves to our tyrannical goobernment or are we Freedom Fighters?
Pfffffffftttttttt........ 47% will vote for more government no matter what. the 10+% of undecided voters are complete morons who will finally vote based on what they will get and a percentage of republicans will stay home because the GOP candidate isnt conservative enough, or wears magic underwear.

Our government is corrupt from top to bottom, even the Supreme Court. Remember Chief Justice Robert´s decision on Obama care? What a travesty! In my opinion, he is either dumb as a chicken or bought and paid by Obama, maybe both.
All of this could have been easily predicted before Obama´s first election when the recording of him came out musing about the bill of rights that they didn´t go far enough. They said only what the government could not do to the citizens, but not what the government should do on your behalf. Obama articulated very clearly this alternate view of "rights" which turns the constitution on it´s head. Any government that is not restrained from treading on it´s citizens trying to be a universal provider is bound to become a tyranny as explained so well by Mark Levin in his best selling book. Obama told anyone who was listening to expect all of this before his first election.
Just started reading an excellent book: The Texas Model - Prosperity In The Lone Star State And Lessons For America, by Chuck DeVore, a former CA legislator who moved to Texas. He now works for the Texas Public Policy Foundation.
I´m OK with Texas being the NEW capital of the NEW U.S. Texas will lead the way with its strong sense of independence and reverence for what used to matter in this great country of ours.
The weight of Obamacare is cumulative and as it begins to weigh on them the public will begin to understand. Obamacare´s tax on medical devices has resulted in more than 100 layoffs in two states. It´s just one of many taxes which will come to light as the Plan is implemented.
From the tone of the articles I´ve been reading the last couple of weeks, it is sounding like even the liberals are realizing they will not be prosperous under this marxist thug. Not even off the backs of those of us who make our money the old fashioned way.
This could be a sign that the sleeping giant is awakening.
Most black people would vote for a black death-row serial killer for president before they´d vote for any white guy. Nobody´s ready to say it, but the fact is that the US is in the middle of a race-based civil war right now and it ain´t gonna get better any time soon.
We´re off on the Road to Communism, la la la Multi million dollar bribed Diane Sawyer is responsible for everything that is wrong in the U.S. today. Without her blindness to the truth, without her 24/7 protecting every crime committed in Washington, without her censoring lies, there would otherwise be constant questioning of authority, constant complaining and bickering about the ancient, long term, too many yeear old gangsters who run Congress, and who have allowed a giant, ever growing cancerous federal government. Without all this unpunished guilt from all the self protecting crooks in the Beltway, a puny, crazed, raging little czar hiring king would not be able to function in our capitol He would be caught up in his own crap day after day, he would be ridiculed for the Hitlerian charismatic image he portrays. When all the TV Diane Sawyers can observe the little dictator day after day without criticism, the political part of our country goes sour. Thank god for all the good people in the USA who are doing good for each other, continuing to make the magic of this country work. All the truck drivers, all the growers, all the food chain people, doctors, the good and the bad restaurants, a few non commie teachers. Despite Diane Sawyer, Obama, his commie comrades and a sick, greed addicted Congress, we still have a miracle country we live in.
You can see why a lot of thinking Americans are wondering just what is going on in Washington, DC. As an example, just last week Obama was claiming that while young woman should go into armed direct combat against the enemy on the battlefield, that it is too dangerous for young men to play college and professional football!
Don´t be too heartened by the lib/prog numbers. What this probably really means is the majority of them love the Obama government, but the others think that the fascist Republicans in the House have been too successful in limiting Obama´s right to rule as Dear Leader, preventing him from controlling all our lives more effectively.
At the heart of the mess the country is in is the frightening cohort of functionally illiterate voters that have been, and are being, flooded into the populace from the government schools. These people have no critical thinking skills, are mathematics, language and economics illiterates, have no understanding of the constitution or basic civics, and have been indoctrinated in socialist dogma.
These are the people who elected Zero, and they aren´t going away.
So how´s that two-party "big tent" system workin´ for ya´, America? Y´all have been divided and conquered. Wake up and end the "good cop / bad cop" game that both parties have played to keep it that way.
The nation has been dumbed down and a good majority are young. Basically, we have an illiterate electorate. What´s it going to take to win an national election? The answer...being able to communicate to the masses with simple solutions they can understand. Republicans need to become better sales people and should be required to listen to the great masters of sales techniques.
Trying to communicate the nations fiscal problems is an waste of time. Telling them how much we´re all going to owe in the future is an exercise in futility. It´s negative and fear based. People want to hear something positive and they also want quick fixes. Tell them something they can relate to. Using the word "Jobs" over and over again isn´t good enough. Give them a road map, a plan of action. Put together a private coalition of companies who are willing to participate with internships. Teach the young how to dream about the future. Inspire with stories of successful people. We should recruit these people to help lead us into the future. This is what Romney failed to do and is what the GOP should be talking about this very moment.
Reagan helped create a nation of prosperity that lasted decades by inspiring us to reach for our dreams. He also gave us the utmost feeling of security. We never had to watch our backs when Reagan was at the helm. The country has changed since the Reagan years. We´re a different country now and this needs to be taken into consideration. In other words, we can´t go back. However, we can still be the shining city on the hill as we move forward together. I pray the Republican party can reboot and come back with a winning game plan.
We should revolt. How about everyone claim 12 dependants on their W4, no money goes into the government coffers and we refuse to pay our April 15th tax bill if we owe. Would only work if we had a few million doing this.
The important thing is that this is the "FIRST TIME" recently that a majority is feeling the downward crushing pressure of government and don´t like it.
This must be seized upon: get those ignorant boobs attention and get them informed.
Got to make sure that they know it´s the Dem/Lefties who are the big-government oppressors.
AND, wake up any Repubs who are tempted by "smaller, smarter government," which is nothing but little doses of poison, administered over a longer period of time.
We must seize the moment, not give up. Let´s not forget that the TEA Partiers have been incessantly denigrated, lied about, maligned, defamed.
Let´s not forget that the uninformed are truly uninformed, ignorant: NOT-KNOWING. They have a limited attention span, too.
They have virtually no historical perspective... can´t remember what happened four years ago, or even two years ago!
Why are they so dumb? ignorant? They demonstrate a lack of curiosity; apathy; intellectual shallowness, as they deeply imbibe entertainment and other frivolities leaving they drunk with silliness.
AND, very importantly, the media are fully engaged in pro-Dem/leftie propaganda, agitation and propaganda, as the Bolsheviks effectively used.
But, these folks have been made to think their vote is so important because they´re important. Little do they know that they are the useful idiots, the toadies. Offer them dignity in return for getting informed. Some, but never all, will respond positively.
Never give up. Never ever ever give up. (to paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill). This isn´t the time for "sunshine patriots." (Tom Paine)
Government and Media, birds of a feather, constantly pursue, reach and eventually influence their primary target market: People incapable of thinking for themselves or just too lazy to expend the effort. That’s how we get what we get and what we’ve got.
“Don’t tread on me?” Hardly! “Tread all you want!” is more like it. The Public Sector is America’s textbook example of how not to run a business in The Private Sector.
Ponder this question: If Obama´s main objective was to destroy this nation, what would he have done differently? Hmmm. All the evidence points to -> He is in cahoots with the new USSR, Chavez, and the Muslim Brotherhood...oh, and the U.N. ...who takes our money (that our dummies give them) so that they can shout how much they hate us (and Israel) on American soil. Sad.
Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
