PURPOSE:

To upset you!  To anger you!

To show you enough of the abuses of liberalism that you will get involved.

To encourage you to contact your elected representatives and object.

NOTHING WILL CHANGE UNTIL YOU DO!!!

"If we believe the power of hell to be limited, we must likewise believe their agents are under some providential control" -- Thomas Paine (1737-1809), The Crisis, 1776

(Recent events by our President and Congress would seem to make it obvious that this isn't true.)


"By gnawing through a dike, even a rat may drown a nation."  - Edmond Burke

The people must also be self-assertive. They must have the spirit of the old Revolutionary War flag: "Don't tread on me!" They must be vigilant against those, at home or abroad, in or out of government, who might wish to trample on their rights. They must be courageous and manly, with a sense of honor, so that in hard times they will stand up and fight, and not slink away slavishly so as to avoid trouble and danger.

Thomas G. West and Douglas A. Jeffrey, The Rise & Decline of Constitutional Government in America

The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence, indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity, however humble that activity, and to scorn shoddiness, however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water. --- John William Gardner (1912 - )

PLAN NOW TO ATTEND A 4th OF JULY TEA PARTY IN YOUR COMMUNITY.  IF THERE ISN'T ONE ALREADY PLANNED ORGANIZE ONE YOURSELF.  GET AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO ATTEND.

DON'T ALLOW POLITICIANS TO PARTICIPATE (they will want to, and they will try to).  TEA PARTIES ARE ABOUT "US" SPEAKING TO "THEM," NOT ABOUT "THEM" SPEAKING TO "US."

First liberals passed laws requiring hospitals to provide emergency health care to everyone, even people in the US illegally who pay no taxes.  Then they wonder why hospital costs go through the roof.  Some hospitals even go broke because of this.  Now comes this:  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124485885782111927.html

And this is only a down payment:  http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aqLNecbH0dcg

The Frank Ricci case.  The liberals set the rules and refereed the game.  Then, totally on the basis of the political philosophy, when they didn't like the results, they cancelled the game altogether:  http://dyn.politico.com/printstory.cfm?uuid=DB5C16A1-18FE-70B2-A849980C697C9864

When the Democrats were proposing the Medicare program they promised it would never cost more than $1.8 billion per year.  Five years later it cost $7.7 billion.  Thirty years later it cost $224 billion.... more than 100 times the original estimate.  Seems that liberals are not very good at making realistic and believable economic estimates.  Now let's look at their estimates for "government health care":  http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/06/a_real_free_market_health_care_1.html

And the "global warming, climate change, green" programs will only continue to make this worse:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/christopherbooker/5525933/Crops-under-stress-as-temperatures-fall.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.
