Has America Been Had?

A good man, wise friend and BlogTalkRadio show host Tony Venuti asked this question of his listeners today..."Has America Been Had?" It got to me to thinking about a quote from Benjamin Franklin when leaving the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787 after the signing of the United States Constitution. Mrs. Powell asked Mr. Franklin, "What have we got, a Republic or a Monarchy?" Ben's immediate answer..."A Republic, if you can keep it."

History is replete with warnings of the dangers of big government, YET WE IGNORE THEM EVERY TIME. Our Founding Fathers spent ELEVEN years forming the Constitution, specifically to prevent us from getting to where we are now. Keep in mind these people didn't even have electricity, yet the aforementioned Mr. Franklin warns us that he who sacrifices liberty for security shall have neither. You see, they studied history too...just not in the government-centralized educational and moral morass that we call public school.

Has America been had? Or are we reaping what we have sown?

Incompetent? I Don't Think So....

"The Press gave the great American republic an UNTRIED, UNKNOWN and, it is becoming more and more frighteningly clear, INCOMPETENT figure as President..." -Rex Murphy, Canadian Broadcast Corp.

I would agree with Mr. Murphy if I honestly believed that Barack Obama had America's interests first, but it would appear that my deeply-held suspicions regarding this man are coming to light on a daily basis. He told us all EXACTLY what he is all about when he talked to Joe the Plumber--redistribution of wealth. You hear it every day now...the millionaires and billionaires need to pay their "fair share"--yet there is never a definition of what "fair" is. Oh wait, yes there was...I believe I distinctly heard Barack Obama say that he refused to sign on to any plan that would let him or anyone else "keep millions and millions of UNNEEDED income". That is a direct quote, look it up.

What exactly *IS* unneeded income, Mr. President? Is that the income you earn AFTER paying to send your children to private school while demanding more taxpayer money for failing public schools? Or would that be the millions of taxpayer dollars that you spent for buses made in Canada while touting your American jobs plan?

No, Rex, Barack Obama is far from incompetent...he is an America-hating Marxist to the bone, and he is carrying out that agenda quite adeptly. Rep. Maxine Waters seems somewhat miffed that her President is not doing more for the black community...Why should he waste valuable fund-raising time in poor black communities who can't donate money to his campaign? They are going to vote for him ANYWAY!
