"One of the worst forms of government is a pure democracy, that is, one in which the citizens enact and administer the laws directly. Such a government is helpless against the mischiefs of faction." -- James Madison (1751-1836), The Federalist Papers, 1787
COMMENT: The Coronation - Well, it's official, Obama is the man. Did you notice that while he promised to cut taxes he also promised lots of new government programs. That was the real salient point of his speech. MORE GOVERNMENT! And since when does more government equal lower taxes?
He promised to eliminate Capital Gains taxes on new and small businesses but there is only one thing wrong with that. Few small businesses pay Capital Gains taxes. They pay income taxes.
Obama said that McCain had no program for tax relief for over 100 million Americans. But, relief for who??? As a group the bottom 40% of our people (120 million) have no tax liability. How do you give tax relief to someone who doesn't pay taxes???
Not one word about how he would get our energy problems solved when his party is beholding to the environmentalists who are ever more in opposition to high power transmission lines. In public they say they approve of wind farms but then they oppose new transmission lines. How do you get electricity from where it is generated to where it is needed without transmission lines?
Nothing about supporting and defending the Constitution.
Nothing about protecting and defending the rights of individuals, but lots and lots about promoting and supporting groups.
When you look under the hood of Obama's speech what you find is the same old engine and transmission. Nothing new! Just plans for more government programs and more taxes (you didn't really expect something better, did you?)
COMMENT - Hurricane god to New Orleans, "Hmmm, seems I didn't get the job done the first time....., guess I will have to try again."

Let's have a look at Obama's voting record. Note that "NV" means "not voting" and usually means absent. So much for his deep concerns for the business of our nation. Sheeesh, what a two face!: http://www.votesmart.org/voting_category.php?can_id=9490

Liberals are fond of saying that new drilling won't bring new oil to market for 10 years. That is an outright lie. Once financing is in place, and a rig is on site, independent operators routinely finish drilling in 3-6 months: http://www.rightsidenews.com/200808221790/energy-and-environment/fiction-domestic-drilling-won-t-have-impact-for-ten-years-or-more.html

Obama tried to lay the blame for the mortgage crisis on the Republicans, BUT, read this story about how it came about AND pay particular note to the date when this warning was published. This mess was solely the result of actions of the Carter and Clinton administrations: http://www.city-journal.org/html/10_1_the_trillion_dollar.html

Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA? If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you. Our nation is a "representative republic." In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you? Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals. Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
