Governor Palin to GOP: Don’t Retreat!

Posted by Adrienne Ross on April 8, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin ended today’s Facebook note by saying,

2008 seems like such a long time ago, but 2012 is just around the corner. There is a leadership vacuum in the White House right now, but that’s nothing that another good old-fashioned election can’t fix.

The Governor is one of the few who will call it like she sees it–time and time again. The pressure comes, and she stands up underneath it. The waves of criticism come, and she rides them. The much weaker souls hide out, and she steps up strong and unbending. This is exactly why so many of us join her in looking forward to 2012 in hopes that she will be involved in that old-fashioned election.

While everyone is abuzz with talk about whether the GOP will cave and compromise their stand on ridding this country of wasteful spending–with a government shutdown looming large–no one wonders what Governor Palin is thinking. No one is uncertain about where she stands and what she stands for. Her track record is clear: Cut spending! Do the right thing! Don’t retreat! In fact she tweeted as much:

GOP: don’t retreat! The country is going broke. We can’t AFFORD cowboy poetry & subsidizing abortion.

No offense to the good people of Nevada, but Harry Reid’s cowboy poetry commitment has to go. Let’s see: our children’s future or cowboy poetry? Do we even need to ask? As for Planned Parenthood, where does one even begin? With all its current controversies, historic racism, moral implications, and immense price tag, why are we debating whether or not to defund them? It’s a no-brainer, is it not? We simply cannot afford them–in more ways than one.

It’s Governor Palin’s propensity to call it like she sees it, to not back down in the face of adversity, to always place principles over party, that earn her the respect of so many Americans. Patriot Mark Levin couldn’t help but applaud her unwavering support of our troops and fiscal sanity. Levin tweets:

Gov. Sarah Palin: Right on! http://fb.me/WCllXsIf

No one wants to see a government shutdown, as Governor Palin pointed out in her Facebook note, but we do want the right thing for this country–and the right thing is taking seriously our financial crisis and getting it under control. The time is now.

Governor Palin has called on both President Obama to muster up some leadership skills and the GOP to hold firm to their commitments. Not too many are as willing as she to call for the end of politicking in favor of practicing common sense. But that’s what separates her from so many, and that’s what makes us all the more anxious for an old-fashioned 2012 election.

I echo Mark Levin: Right on, Governor Palin.

Clowns, Cowboys, and a Contender

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 9, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Image retrieved here

Governor Palin tweeted the following earlier:

We’re $14,000,000,000,000+ in debt, yet rodeo clowns still want to fund Cowboy Poetry Party.That must be 1 helluvahigh natl priority shindig

In case you were wondering what that was all about, let me fill you in. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is quite concerned that cuts in federal spending will lead to a devastating bye-bye to the annual cowboy poetry festival in Nevada. No need to rub your eyes; you read it right the first time.

If you’d like to actually listen to and see the Senator discussing this, here you go, courtesy of Fox Nation:

Let’s face it, folks. Some people just don’t get it. They missed the message the emergence of the Tea Party delivered, they missed the message the November mid-term elections sent, and they have obviously missed the message that we are in enormous debt as a nation.

Look, I’m an English Language Arts teacher and a poet myself. I appreciate rhythm and rhyme as much as the next person, but come on…the cowboy poetry festival?!

Governor Palin always stands head and shoulders above the rest because she always calls a spade a spade–or a clown a clown. Haters complain she’s not playing nicely enough, or biting her tongue enough, or looking the other way enough–and thank God, they’re right. She’s not. We have enough so-called conservatives and 2012 GOP potentials doing that already. We need a leader–a real contender–who is willing to call out the clowns in Congress, someone with a proven record and a commitment to fiscal responsibility. We need Governor Palin.

Palin says Obama has most backasswards plan ever

Posted by loricalabrese on July 12, 2010

Sarah Palin speaking at a rally in Elon, NC during the 2008 Presidential Campaign.

Sarah Palin believes what happens in Vegas shouldn’t stay in Vegas. That’s why Palin posted a link to an article on her twitter account Sunday from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and asked her followers to circulate.

The article, an editorial titled “President: We’re Moving Forward,” slams Obama for comments he made at a Nevada fundraiser for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

“President Obama once again left behind a sinking feeling that neither he nor Sen. Reid have a clue how to pull this country out of its current dire economic straits,” the Review-Journal wrote on Thursday.

Palin provided her own words for the President in a separate tweet

“He’s (Obama’s) got most disconnected, backasswards plan ever imposed on the country we love.”

In his speech, Obama slammed Reid’s Republican challenger, Sharron Angle for her views on social security, medicare, education, and the Gulf oil spill victims’ compensation fund.

“While the president did not mention Mr. Reid’s front-running Republican challenger Sharron Angle by name, he did comment on her plan to let younger workers invest part of their Social Security withholdings in private accounts they would own, while Washington would continue paying promised benefits to older Americans,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

“On a lot of these issues, she favors an approach that’s even more extreme than the Republicans in Washington,” said Obama. “That’s saying something. That is saying something. I mean, she wants to phase out and privatize Social Security and Medicare.”

The article pointed out how Obama admits that government is not the answer, but “at the same time he’s growing government control over our economy at the fastest rate seen since the wartime emergency of 1942, while bragging how his administration will pick and choose which “startups” are worth taxpayer subsidies.”

Palin tweeted, “Sharon Angle’s right: new workers should get to invest some Social Security withholdings in their own savings accounts & Washington continues to pay promised benefits to older workers. What part of “The System is Going Bankrupt” don’t you understand, Mr. Reid?”

Governor Palin Lights Up Searchlight Tea Party (Video Included)

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 28, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin spoke before a crowd estimated at over 20,000 yesterday in Searchlight, NV, Senator Harry Reid’s hometown. Her speech drew applause throughout and further energized a crowd that was already fired up.

At the start of her speech, she joked about writing on her hand, something she has come to call “the poor man’s version of the teleprompter.” Then she got down to business–God, military, energy, taxes, freedom.

And yes, she took on the lamestream media’s ridiculous lie that she and other tea partiers incite violence.

Politico reports:

“When we talk about fighting for our country, let’s clear the air right now about what we’re talking about,” she told an estimated 20,000 tea partiers gathered for a rally in a windswept desert lot about four miles north of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s tiny hometown. “We’re not inciting violence. Don’t get sucked into the lame-stream media lies.”

Palin said “violence isn’t the answer.” She said “our vote is our arms” and encouraged activists not to be discouraged by the passage of the Democratic healthcare overhaul bill last week, but rather to channel their energies into defeating congressional Democrats who supported the legislation.

Contrast that to Harry Reid’s supporters today who allegedly threw eggs at Andrew Breitbart and the Tea Party Express bus. Read about that here and here. I would sit around and wait for the lamestream media and Left-wingers to cry out in outrage against this behavior, but I have things to do and can’t wait that long.

In spite of the violent behavior against the tea partiers, nothing dampened the mood. Governor Palin’s speech certainly did not disappoint. The thousands of patriots gathered left more determined than ever to take back the country they so dearly love.

Watch the governor’s speech below:

Sarah Palin, Tea Party Take Aim in Searchlight

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on March 27, 2010

By Shane Vander Hart at Caffeinated Thoughts 

The Tea Party Express stopped in Searchlight, NV in Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s back yard (almost literally).

Fox News reported on this event:

Fewer taxes, less government and no "Obamacare."

That’s the message thousands of conservative Tea Party activists were hoping to send to Washington as they streamed into Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s hometown in Nevada Saturday morning.

"Harry Reid is symbolic of the problems in Washington in the sense that he’s been the leader in the Senate of all the things we’ve been against — expanding the government, increasing the deficit, and raising taxes," Sal Russo, chief strategist of the Tea Party Express, told FoxNews.com.

"He campaigned as a moderate but has moved so far to the left," Russo said of Reid. "Voters are tolerate of different views, but what they don’t like is when someone campaigns one way and then governs by another."

The Tea Party Express, one of the most visible factions of the national Tea Party Movement, officially kicked off its cross-country, 42-city bus tour with Saturday’s rally.

Senator Reid is majorly vulnerable as he trails both GOP hopefuls in the latest poll.  We know that elections have consequences, as we have well learned from the outcome in 2008.  Senate votes have consequences as well.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was a keynote speaker for the event today, you can watch her speech in full here.  She discussed numerous topics and she specifically addressed the media’s meme this week that she and other conservative leaders are inciting violence and expressing concern about tea party violence.  She said:

We’re not inciting violence.  Don’t get sucked into the lamestream media’s lies about conservative America’s standing up for freedom as inciting violence.  Violence isn’t the answer.  It’s a bunch of bunk what the media is trying to feed you.  Don’t let them divert attention from the debate.  Media, you guys ginning up an issue like that making it sound like it is a crowd like this of patriotic Americans who are inciting violence.  It’s not true, it’s a bunch of bunk, and we ask for some fair and balanced reporting coming from you please.

Apparently though it was Harry Reid’s supporters who were inciting violence.  Interesting.  I doubt that’ll make it in The New York TimesPolitico reported 20,000 in attendance at this event four miles north of this small town in the Nevada desert.  Conservatives 4 Palin noted that President Obama drew “hundreds” (or up to 3000) to his kickoff event in liberal Iowa City for his first stop of his temporary victory tour.

Who do you think is more energized?

Sarah Palin Proclaims: With a Stiff Spine America Must Stand Against Obamacare

Posted by Gary P Jackson on March 15, 2010

Barack Obama is leading his party to certain disaster. He and his party have really gone off the deep end. The march toward complete tyranny in America must be stopped.

Look, let’s make this simple. America has spoken, for a year now, America has spoken. They have said not no, but HELL NO(!) to ObamaCare. Americans rose up at town hall meetings. Americans formed both the Tea Party and 912 Project. Millions marched on Washington.

Fully 3/4 of Americans say they want no part of what Obama and his tyrannical Congress are selling, and yet, Obama is still demanding his corrupt Congress pass this unconstitutional disaster.

Obama came into office with a majority in both Houses, a “super majority” actually, as his Senate was filibuster proof. Despite the caterwauling from democrats that they were being obstructed by those mean old Republicans, truth is, the ObamaCare is such a crap sandwich, even some democrats wanted absolutely nothing to do with it.

This is why we have seen backroom deals, like the Cornhusker Kickback and the Louisiana Purchase. All sorts of arm twisting behind the scenes. Obama may have illegally offered a Congressman’s brother a judgeship to get a vote out of the guy!

Instead of passing this mess though, Obama has fail, and America has only spoken louder and louder, saying HELL NO!

Obama lost his “super majority” in Congress when the bluest of blue states in the nation rejected the democrat looking to fill “Teddy Kennedy’s seat” and elected Scott Brown, whose main selling point, to many, was he was a vote against ObamaCare!

So, unable to move forward, Obama and his minions in Congress looked to illegally use “reconciliation” over in the Senate, to shove this down America’s throat. Under this scenario, the House would have to vote on and pass the Senate bill, as is, send it back to the Senate, and the Senate would shove it through, and send it to Obama.

The Senate parliamentarian put up several road blocks to this, and a number of democrats in the House are now having serious issues, including federal funding of abortions, and well, the thought of using a questionable procedure to pass a wildly unpopular bill.

We wrote about Bart Stupak’s courageous stand. We also wrote that democrats were telling Stupak they wanted to fund abortions, and if they took funding out, more babies would be born, and it would cost the government more money! That is breathtakingly evil. You can read more here.

Now here’s where we are at. While reconciliation, for these purposes, is illegal, the democrats don’t care, and still want to use it. But to do it, the House has to pass the Senate Bill, as is, with abortion funding, and other unsavory items that many members of the House oppose. Now these members are being told “trust us, we’ll fix all of that later.” To their credit, they aren’t buying that load of manure. They will not vote for ObamaCare, and ObamaCare will not pass the House.

So, here’s the latest. As the House and Senate can make up their own rules, to a certain extent, the House has drafted a rule called, I kid you not, the “Slaughter Rule.” This rule basically says Speaker Pelosi can “deem” the legislation passed, without even having a vote! This, of course is dangerous, and in direct violation of the Constitution, not that these people care.

Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a law, be presented to the President of the United States; if he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, together with the objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a law. But in all such cases the votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and against the bill shall be entered on the journal of each House respectively. If any bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall not be a law.

Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the rules and limitations prescribed in the case of a bill.

—Article I Section 7 United States Constitution.

I shouldn’t have to explain just how dangerous this is to the Republic. This bit of tyranny along with the Senate’s new found love for “reconciliation” will forever change America. If the democrats pull this off, it’s over. There will be nothing to stop them from using it to pass anything. We will basically become a dictatorship, lead by the most maniacal psychopaths to ever hold office.

Sarah Palin has asked all Americans to stand strong against this great evil:

With a Stiff Spine America Must Stand Against Obamacare

If Senator Reid, Speaker Pelosi, and President Obama get their way, soon our country will be changed forever. Using every partisan parliamentary trick in the book (including some they invented just last week), Washington’s Left intends to ram through their takeover of our health care system regardless of the consequences.

The latest twists and turns in the Obamacare drama seem almost surreal. One minute the Democrat leadership is trying to amend a bill before the president has even signed it into law, and the next minute they’re trying to draft a new rule that will allow the House to “deem” a bill passed without actually voting on it! They’re determined to use the Senate reconciliation process as a parliamentary trick to bypass the regular voting procedure (and by the way, to add insult to injury, they’re now going to ram through federalization of America’s student loan industry with this same reconciliation vote). Is there any other wildly unpopular legislation they’d also like to sneak in? Perhaps the anti-energy-independence policy “Cap and Tax” (aka Cap and Trade) is next?

And make no mistake, the Obamacare bill is wildly unpopular. The Democrats’ own pollsters warn of an “unmitigated disaster” for them in November if they don’t abandon their plan and start over with real incremental health care reform. Incredibly, at this point, they don’t seem to care.

Speaker Pelosi thinks Congress must pass the bill so that the American people can then “find out what’s in it.” We know what’s in it. We don’t want it. The Democrats will take short-term electoral losses in exchange for long-term radical change of the United States of America. They assume we’ll come to accept this new intrusion of government once we’re stuck with it. That’s why we can’t concede this battle. Americans must stiffen our spines and stand against this action that violates the will of the people with centralized government mandates and crippling costs.

Republicans in Congress are holding the line, and some Democrats are standing with them. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) said he won’t vote for the Senate bill if federal funding of abortion is included. Last Friday, he told National Review Online that some Democrats have told him that if abortions aren’t covered in Obamacare then “more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more…Money is their hang-up. Is this how we now value life in America?

As I wrote in my first post on this topic, human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion. Government health care will not reduce the cost of medical care; it will simply refuse to pay it. And who will get left behind when they have to ration care to save money?

Please ask yourself: who will be left behind? And who will decide – what kind of panel will decide – who receives the health care that government will obviously have to ration?

There’s a great deal of pressure being put on Stupak’s pro-life Democrats. They’re already dwindling in number. Their party is threatening them, and so are powerful SEIU labor union bosses.

The Democrats respecting the sanctity of life have every incentive to buckle under the pressure, so they need to know that we’ll support them if they do the right thing and vote no on Obamacare.

Please take the time to get involved in the debate this week. There are many grassroots efforts under way. There will be a march on Washington on Tuesday, March 16th. Rep. Michele Bachmann has a “Kill the Bill” online petition that you can sign here. Most importantly, contact members of Congress and offer your support if they do the right thing.

We know we’ll beat them at the ballot box, but we have to kill this bill before November. This is the final push. We must stand up and stand together one last time to insist on true market-oriented, patient-centered health care reform that reflects America’s values and the will of the people.

– Sarah Palin

For their part, democrat party leadership is working overtime to intimidate House members into submission. Congressman Chris Van Hollen, assistant to Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi sent out a memo warning members not to speak of their unconstitutional power grab.

Van Hollen shrugs this tyrannical behavior off as “inside baseball” and goes on to say: “People who try and start arguments about process on this are almost always against the actual policy substance too, often times for purely political reasons.”

Amazingly arrogant, amazingly evil.

Brad Darling over at Red State breaks this entire situation down very well in his must read piece, which you can do here.

Also from Red State, is almost an apocalyptic prediction should Congress continue on this path:

Now, let’s talk about consequences.

The American public was at first peeved about this government power grab, leading to wildly entertaining August recesses for congressional Democrats. As the Dems shoved non-matching bills through House and Senate, America got positively miffed. Witness McDonnell, Christie, and Brown.

Now America is flat irritated. And if the Dems try sporting this blatant middle finger at the Constitution and America, we will all see what happens when America is finally angry. Like Dan Perrin, I think Democrats will back down before doing this. But we’ve both underestimated their stupidity several times in this process. Nothing’s a safe bet anymore.

Before this, Democrats were already going to lose HUGE in November. There are more House Democrats retiring in “safe” districts than there are Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys in prison. But if they try this stunt, the ensuing electoral revolt will be epic and irreversible, resulting in a Democrat Party crippled so irredeemably that I predict a new center-left party will emerge in the next 10 years, attempting to shed the stench of scandal and disrepute that will be permanently connected to the Democrats. Most likely the partisan press will accelerate their own death spiral as they are unwilling to speak ill of the Democrats.

But that is November. What will happen in March?

Six things I can think of, the first three within days. I couldn’t say what order, because things will move pretty quickly. So I list them how my mind sorts them.

1. The Supreme Court will strike it down within days.

I don’t remember which of the 3 authors I cited said this (or maybe I heard it on the radio), so I don’t know who to cite. But every American has standing here, due to the exceedingly far reach of the Health Care Takeover bill. Somebody will sue. I predict GOP members of Congress will, and it will go straight to the Supreme Court. They will strike down the whole caboodle, and they will do it almost immediately. Probably 6-3, with Breyer and Kennedy voting with the originalists. Their ruling is very likely to include language extremely damning of the behavior of Democrats.

2. Numerous states will declare statutorily under the 10th Amendment that this law will be unenforceable within their borders.

I’m guessing 20 states. The move has been afoot for awhile anyway, and this blatant flouting of the Constitution will trigger the America-loving, freedom-loving instincts into bold (if rash) action. And while they’re at it, they’re going to say the same thing about everything emanating from the EPA.

3. There will be public anti-government outrage so great that it will boil into violence.

I do not condone this; it will be ugly and more than a little scary. Lest I give anybody fresh ideas, I will not expound upon it other than to say it will be directed, not generalized — directed at objects, property, and symbols of government, not at people. Although those who voted for this Slaughter Rule would be wise to perhaps hang around in Washington for awhile.

4. (Even more) new candidates opposing incumbent Democrats will come out of the woodwork.

Many already have, but many good ones have considered, then declined. Many of those will change their minds, even in blue states. And new ones will pop up like dandelions. And a whole bunch of them will win. The leftist partisan national media currently think Republicans might, juuuuuuuust MIGHT, get 40 seats and the House back. Idiots. It was already going to be 80 and 8. But after this stunt, it might be 120 and 14. This is what happens when the entire center turns on a party.

5. State AGs will bring charges against sitting Congressmen for whatever they can plausibly pin on them.

Sedition is the actual crime (IMHO), and that’s a federal charge. But no USA will touch this, since they work for the president. Because members of Congress cannot be recalled, citizens will be thirsting for vengeance. Very loudly. State AG’s will be chomping at the bits to exact SOME form of payback, encouraged (or pushed) by their citizenry. Things like corruption, conspiracy, bribery, racketeering, tax fraud, and so on, will be easy indictments. As the last few months have shown, congressional Democrats have been so thoroughly corrupt for so long, nobody will even have to trump up anything.

6. Republicans will shut down business in Congress until January 5.

Then it will REALLY get fun.

Democrats will lose the country days after they pull the Slaughter Rule. They’ll have their illegal law both flouted and overruled, their members will be subject to investigations and indictments, and not a single item of interest will be signed into law, nor will any appointment be approved, before January 5, when a hundred or more of them leave Washington for good.

You can read all of this great analysis here.

I know, at this point, you are asking yourself why Obama, Pelosi, and Reid will risk it all to pass this wildly unpoular bill. Why are these loons willing to not only risk the ire of the Supreme Court, but possible violence from the American people, and maybe even civil war?

BTW, never forget our founding fathers fought a revolution, against the most powerful nation on earth, over this sort of nonsense.

Back in 1961 Ronald Reagan reminded us what it is all about. Progressives have been trying to pass some sort of government run health care into law for 100 years. The reason being, once passed, government gains complete and total control over the lives of it’s citizens.

This is something progressives desperately desire. These egomaniacal loons honestly believe they are smarter than you are, and know far better what is good for you, than you do. They sincerely believe you are too stupid to function on your own, and they must guide your every action with a command and control type of government, that literally plays a role in every action you may take.

Think about all of the insane rules that have been enacted, for your own good, and how many more these evil people wish to enact. It will all be possible if they get their foot in the door through ObamaCare, especially if they get away with this coup d’état they are now attempting.

I leave you with these words of wisdom from the great Renaldus Magnus:

Sarah Palin Headlines The Showdown In Searchlight To Defeat Harry Reid

Posted by Gary P Jackson on March 2, 2010

Sarah Palin is headlining a major Tea Party event in Searchlight, Nevada on March 27.

Searchlight, of course, is the hometown of the corrupt Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid. Reid is one of many old guard, corrupt democrats being targeted for defeat come November. One by one the American people will defeat these evil progressives, send them packing, as we take our government back.

I heartily recommend everyone brew up a big pot of tea on the 27th and head to Searchlight, if not in person, at least in spirit!

Sarah Palin Rips Into Congress Over War Tax

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 25, 2009

Of all of the insanity that has come out of our current democrat/communist congress, this has to really take the cake. These dangerous loons have been spending us into oblivion for quite some time. The spending has been beyond irresponsible, it borders on treason.

This is a bi-partisan effort, by the way. Both parties are out of control, but the democrat/communist party is now out there where the busses don’t run.

We all know the far left loons that infect Congress, and the nation as a whole, hate our military, despise it, actually. The left’s contempt for our military is palpable, has been forever. Now they are really letting it all hang out, going for broke.

Congress is now saying they want to add a “war surtax” to everyone’s tax bill to pay for our national security. They are now whining that the cost of war is hurting their march toward turning America into a communist hell hole.

In a bit of political grandstanding Congressman David Obey (D/C-Wisc.), the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, warned that if President Barack Obama decides to send additional troops to Afghanistan, it should be funded with the new tax.

Don’t you just love how democrat/communists want to tax EVERYTHING?

Obie went on to say this:

“If we don’t pay for it, then the cost of the Afghan war will wipe out every other initiative that we have to try to rebuild our own economy,” he said. “I’m going to be fighting to get whatever they do paid for.”

That’s pretty rich! Just what are they doing to rebuild our economy? I see nothing.

Sarah weighed in on this last night:

Congress Never Ceases to Amaze

Really? A tax on national defense? I hear liberal Congressional proposals and I, like most Americans, wonder if they’re serious. We’re going to put a price tag on security?

With Congress and President Obama spending money on everything at breakneck speed, it’s interesting that they are only now getting nervous about spending – but only when it comes to providing the necessary funds to complete our mission in Afghanistan. They don’t need a new “war tax” to fund a strategy for victory in the war zone. They simply need to prioritize our money appropriately.

I find it telling that the Pelosi-Reid Congress is only cost-conscious when it comes to our national defense. Scary. Nonsensical. Unacceptable.

– Sarah Palin

I know most in Congress these days have either never read the Constitution, or have chose to ignore it, but the American people haven’t. Having read our Constitution front to back, I can tell you that as far as spending, and responsibilities go, national defense and funding for it, is talked about frequently. In fact, it’s one of the few responsibilities of the federal government that is actually, and explicitly, spelled out!

In other words, constitutionally, Congress has no authority to do things like take over our health care, private businesses, or even schools, but they are directed to defend the nation and the Constitution.

So here is where we are at. We have a Congress that is trying to fundamentally change America, take her in a direction that an overwhelming number of Americans, a super majority, do not want to go.

Congress has spent more money since Barack Obama has been in office than was spent in the previous 233 years of our nation’s existence, combined. From George Washington, to George W Bush, Obama and his thug Congress has spent more than all of the other 43 Presidents, combined.

And yet, with all of the trillions of dollars spent on social engineering, and “change,” these evil little devils can’t seem to find the money to pay for the ONE THING they are actually REQUIRED to pay for constitutionally!

I think it’s well past the time we continue to give these people the benefit of the doubt. Congress is out of control, and their refusal to listen to the American people is bordering on treason. We must hold these thieves, these scoundrels, accountable.
