HERE THEY COME AGAIN!

April 20, 2010

Many of us have predicted that since the Obama Administration and its lackeys in Congress are emboldened by the fact that they appear to have successfully ignored the will of the American people and passed the so-called “health care reform bill” that they would come at us with more unconstitutional legislation. I wish we had been wrong, but unfortunately, it is happening as we thought it would.

First and foremost is the “Cap and Trade Bill” that Nancy Pelosi forced through the House of Representatives. This is HR 2454, a bill to impose massive regulations on American businesses and homeowners to placate the advocates of the now thoroughly discredited “global warming theory”. When even some of the most Socialist and liberal countries in Europe are having second thoughts about the concept of global warming the Obama Administration though Harry Reid, the majority leader in the Senate, has vowed that there are enough votes to force this legislation on the American people despite their opposition to it.

This bill, which is 1422 pages long, will impose large tax increases on the production of energy in the United States that will increase the average yearly cost of electricity for American families by anywhere from $1500.00 to $3,000.00 per year. Within a year of its passage it may also impose on American homeowners the requirement that in order to sell their homes they must comply with energy efficiency and water requirement upgrades that could average about $6800.00 per home. This is being done with no regard to the fact that many homeowners are already facing foreclosures because they can’t sell their homes for enough to pay off existing mortgages.

Congress has no authority under the U.S. Constitution to enact this kind of legislation.

However, that doesn’t seem to matter anymore. I said from the beginning that the health care legislation was not about health care at all, but about control of the economy and the American people. I can safely say the same about Cap and Trade. It is not about global warming but about putting more power and control into the hands of an elite few. As far as the Obama Administration and the leaders in Congress are concerned, we are no longer citizens of a free country; we are now subjects of an all powerful Federal Government. That is exactly what our Constitution was designed to prohibit.

Unfortunately, that is just the beginning. A new Immigration Reform Bill is soon to be introduced in Congress to provide those people who have entered our country illegally with amnesty and to provide them with a fast track to citizenship and voting rights. Congress has always had the power to control immigration in the United States yet, it has never before considered making people who entered illegally into American citizens on a mass scale.

The clear purpose of this legislation is to increase the voting block for a particular political party in a number of key states such as Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Florida, and California. This is being done when many American citizens are losing their jobs to illegal immigrants and despite the opposition of the overwhelming majority of the American people. Yet, even some Republicans like Lindsay Graham of South Carolina are apparently supporting this legislation.

In addition, there is the Financial Regulatory Reform Bill, HR 4173 that will once again give enormous power to Obama and his Czars to essentially take control of banks and other financial institutions. This will ultimately lead to the Nationalization of the banking industry. This has been done in socialist countries with disastrous consequences. Most of what the President and his Czars will be allowed to do will not have to be approved by Congress so once again the final losers in this will be the American people.

Other dangerous bills pending in Congress are: H.R. 45: “To provide for the implementation of a system of licensing for purchasers of certain firearms and for a record of sale system for those firearms, and for other purposes”. In fact, this bill is so comprehensive that it would virtually destroy the right of individuals in the United States to keep and bear arms, a right that has recently been upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States. I personally find it interesting that this bill was introduced by Rep. Bobby L. Rush of Illinois. He is a long time political ally of President Obama, but he is also a former Black Panther and convicted felon who spent time in jail for a firearms violation.

Then we have several bills pending in the Senate and the House to establish background checks for private individuals purchasing firearms from other private individuals at gun shows. This is clearly outside of the Constitutional powers of Congress. There is also Senate Bill 773 introduced by Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia to give President Obama and the Federal Government the power to regulate the content of the Internet and to give President Obama the power to take control of the Internet entirely by declaring a Cyber Security crisis. What constitutes such a crisis is left up to Obama.

Add to this mix the rather strange Executive Orders issued by President Obama exempting an international police agency, Interpol, from having to obey some U.S. laws; the apparent attempt to take control of the National Guard Units away from the Governors of the 50 States and place them entirely in control of the President, and the recent order to make hospitals allow gays and lesbians to have visitation rights with patients. In all of this I see a pattern of the President usurping powers reserved in the Constitution to the States and individuals.

Whether you agree with these acts are not, the fact is that under our Constitutional form of Government these are the actions of someone who considers himself a Dictator, not an elected Representative of the people and the sovereign States of the United States of America. Yet, it is clear that not only is Congress unwilling to put the reins on Obama’s misuse of the powers of his office, this same Congress is preparing to transfer even more power to him.  

As Americans who value our freedom it is incumbent on us to let our representatives in the House and our Senators know that we are not the ignorant masses they seem to think we are. We are well aware of what is happening and we will hold them accountable.

 

Go Back

This is our country not the politicians private bank account with unlimited access.

As a 100 % disabled veteran (served in VietNam, Bosnia, Desert Shield/Storm, I have a very personal interest in our country and our freedoms. Mr Connely has written several of these type papers and so far he has captured the crux of the matter on everyone of them.

I hope everyone who reads these papers takes to heart what is being expressed within them.

Every military member takes an oath to defend the constitution from all enemies Foreign and Domestic.

I am fast seeing our country taken over by what I believe are domestic (home grown) enemies of our constitution. These people are our politicians and elected officials. We must stand together and remove those who are destroying all our country stands for when ever it is time to vote for that position again.

I love my country, it is our government I do not trust!

God bless America, and God bless those who read these pages,

Michael:

While I am a far cry from any type of “Scholar”, Constitutional or otherwise, (no offense intended-grin) I have spent a bit over a year researching our history for my web site. The purpose of my site is to try and look at, and remember, the basic ideas, beliefs and original intent of those who crafted our nation.

Spanish Philosopher George Santayana penned that immortal phrase “Those who can not remember their history are doomed to repeat it”. It is my belief that “Those who can not remember their history do not know who they are - and, have no future.”.

The wisdom and vision of our Founders is evident in our success, both as a nation and as individuals. For over a quarter of a millennia, America has stood as a beacon of freedom, never knowing the conqueror’s heel, and her citizens have become the most prosperous on Earth.

Unfortunately, this success has come with a price. We have become a nation of the complacent. When we, as a nation, look into the mirror we no longer recognize the face looking back at us. We have forgotten that America is not simply a geographic area, a particular collection of people or a system of government. The heart of America is a spirit! That spirit is the spirit of freedom and it demands certain things of us. When we fail in our responsibilities to that spirit, both the spirit and our freedom are reduced.

My research has only reinforced my personal belief that you do not have to be a “Scholar” to understand the simple, basic principles that are the heart of the spirit that is America. They are apparent to anyone who is willing to set aside prejudice and, with thoughtful logic, consider the volumes of evidence our founders left us.

In trying to do so I have found, what I believe to be, ten principles of the American Spirit that can provide us with a standard, against which we can compare and evaluate the words and actions of those to whom we have given the power to govern. Your understanding of the spirit that is America, and the intentions of those who would destroy that spirit, is as clear and succinct as your writings. For what worth they may be, for any guidance they may offer anyone today and for your thoughts upon them, I submit:

Ten Principles of the American Spirit

1. The formation of individuals, into a society is, "in every way a blessing".

2. A society where the individual members are free to pursue their own desires, keep the fruits of their labors and pursue happiness for both themselves and their posterity, is a universal human desire.

3. All people, as a result of their creation, have the right of freedom to pursue - not be guaranteed - life, liberty and happiness and, as this right is NOT granted but inherent in their creation, it can NOT be taken away - by man or government.

4. The primary purpose of government is to protect this right.

5. The essence of protecting this right is that of limiting the power of government to this purpose. If, at any time, government fails in this duty and becomes oppressive of this right then it is both the right and the duty, of the people, to remove such government and replace it with one that will fulfill this obligation.

6. The only source of governmental power is the individual citizens of the society.

7. The citizens can NOT give, nor can government take, any power that any individual does not, inherently, possess.

8. Government, by it's very nature, always has and always will strive to both take as much power, from the individual, as it can AND create power where no such power exists! Therefore, Freedom and citizenship come with the absolute responsibility to constantly be alert for, and vigorously oppose such attempts

9. The American Form of Government, in every aspect, is predicated on the moral principles of the Judeo-Christian ethos and designed only for the government of "...a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." . In such, individuals have the freedom of choice but must be held accountable for the consequences of their choices.

10. The Declaration of Independence is the statement of these principles and the Constitution for the United States of America is the expression of those principles. The two are, inseparable, parts of a single whole and the constitution must always be construed in the spirit of the Declaration and the original intent of those who wrote and ratified these documents!

It is against these principles that I measure the actions of those in our government today and those who would support their actions. I have yet to find one single person or action, of the current administration or their supporters, that has been able to stand up to the test of these ten principles. It is sites such as yours and the sentiments of those who post here that constantly renew my belief that this test has been placed before us for a reason and that, if we are true to these principles, we WILL prevail.

Thank you for your service to our nation,

Terry N. Reitz

All of these things that loser Obama is doing is exactly what Adolf Hitler did in taking over Germany and the other countries that became a Nazi nation. Each step Obama takes is like he's checking off each item on a list he took from Hitler. I'm scared to death he will accomplish his agenda and his dictator muslim terrorist regime will be in place forever.Obama is a dangerous domestic terrorist and I blame him, of course, and all the people that voted him into office. God help us!
