Group one: These are
the achievers, those who strive, work hard and are rewarded with

Group two: The
non-achievers. This group seldom exerts the extra effort
required to rise above their station and attain their perceived
goals. They are dissatisfied with their lot in life and spend
much of their lives in envy of the achievers.
Group three: This
segment consists of those who contribute absolutely nothing, yet
demand equity based on the labor and achievement of society as a

That’s just the way it is.
In our Republic we have a
Constitution and a Bill of Rights. These are the
cornerstones on which our Republic was founded. Within
this framework are three guarantees, the right to Life, Liberty
and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Man’s life, liberty and property
are held sacred and protected by this constitutional framework
and the government is simply an extension of mans basic rights.
Any attempt to engage in the confiscation or the conscription of
the fruit of one mans labor, by either man or government, in
order to provide goods or service to another is an act of
illegal plunder and as such should be protested and resisted by
And so on to the issues of
“Cap and Trade” and “Government Health Care”.
Whether or not each of these
issues may or may not have perceived benefits in the eye of the
beholder is not the question or the issue. The question
is, “Are they acts of illegal plunder?” and “Are they in
defiance of the very Constitution and Bill of Rights this
country was founded on?” The simple and unequivocal answer
in each of these instances is a resounding yes.
As such they should be resisted to
the extreme. Call your congressman, your senators, your
representatives, your family, your friends and your neighbors
and stop this madness.
If love of country and our
way of life are not enough to instill a sense of reason
The national debt as of this years
budget is an estimated five times the amount of last years
budget. All within one year. With Health Care and
Cap and Trade this number will rise exponentially.
Do we want to place our faith and
trust in the same people who ran the railroads into oblivion,
who oversee our failing Postal System, the Barny Franks and
Senator Dodd who ran oversight on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
which triggered our current state of economy, to those entrusted
with our Social Security program, Medicaid and Medicare who have
voted themselves exempt? Do we want these folks to control our
very livelihood and well being?
Judges must interpret the Constitution of
the United States as written and not attempt to modify it,
either by inventing new rights or by ignoring or diluting
rights already there. The Constitution already
provides an amendment process that gives that power to the
people and their elected officials.
Judges must not use their positions to
replace the text of the law and Constitution of the United
States with their own personal feelings or agenda or "life
experiences." Nor should they allow empathy, political
favor, or political identification to affect their legal
decisions. To do so is to engage in judicial activism.
Judges must understand that the Federal
government has no power if the Constitution does not
explicitly provide it. The Founders did this to
maximize personal and economic liberty. The
Constitution reserves all other rights to the states and to
Judges must respect the delicate checks
and balances and the separation of powers among the branches
of government, refusing to become a tool of either the
Legislative or Executive branches, and they must be prepared
to invalidate efforts of either branch to overstep its
constitutionally delegated powers.
The Constitution is an American document,
and declares that it shall be "the supreme Law of the Land."
Foreign law has no place as precedent or authority in the
interpretation of the Constitution.
Judeo-Christian Nation On April 6th of this year the
President traveled half way around the globe and made several speeches,
in one of which he referred to the United States as having the largest
Muslim population. In Turkey he proclaimed that the United States was
NOT a Judeo-Christian Nation. This may be his belief. However, it should
be pointed out that, as in many instances, "The Anointed One" may be in

Obama and the U.S. Congress have gone on a spending and debt
spree that the country cannot afford. As a result, a spontaneous
grassroots movement is emerging from every corner of the nation
with a message for Congress and the president: Stop spending us
into an inevitable spiral of debt and higher taxes … now!
To that end, groups of Americans will be meeting
in towns and cities across the nation on April 15 for “Tax Day
Tea Parties” (think Boston Tea Party, not biscuits and fine
English china). These “Ten Tax Facts” are our effort to make
sure the American people are well- informed as they gather
together to express their concern about the direction Washington
#1 .Under the Obama budget, the Congressional
Budget Office (CBO) projects that the national debt will double
over the next five years; and it will triple over the next 10
years to $17.3 trillion.
#2. Under the Obama budget, CBO projects that the
national debt will soar over the next 10 years from 40 percent
of GDP today to a shocking 82.4 percent. (Ronald Reagan left
office with the national debt at 42 percent of GDP).
#3. The president’s budget also states that total
federal borrowing will grow by $2.7 trillion this year alone, an
increase of 27 percent in one year!
#4. The budget President Obama proposes for this
year increases federal spending by an incredible 34 percent over
the previous year, with a total of $4 trillion in federal
spending, the highest ever.
#5. The federal budget deficit (not the national
debt) would reach $1.845 trillion this year, according to the
CBO, the highest ever. That would be more than seven times
Reagan’s largest budget deficit of $221 billion, which caused so
much consternation among Reagan’s critics.
#6. The CBO estimates that this Obama budget
deficit will total an astounding 13.1 percent of GDP, more than
one-eighth of the entire U.S. economy, for the federal budget
deficit alone! Under George Bush, the federal deficit for 2008
was 3.2 percent of GDP. The deficit for fiscal year 2007, in the
last budget adopted when Congress was controlled by Republican
majorities, was $162 billion, or 1.2 percent of GDP.
#7. The Obama budget also includes $1 trillion in
tax increases on the upper 5 percent of income earners, mostly
tax rate increases. But the top 5 percent of income earners
already pays 60 percent of all income taxes.
#8. The Obama budget projects that revenues from
the corporate income tax will more than double in 3 years,
increasing, in fact, by more than 124 percent.
#9. Another $645 billion tax increase comes from
President Obama’s anti-global warming cap and trade system,
which is essentially an energy tax on the production and use of
carbon energy, such as oil, natural gas, and coal.
#10. While the Obama administration claims to
have cut $2 trillion from the budget over 10 years, fully $1.5
trillion of those “cuts” actually represents the troop drawdown
in Iraq, which was already scheduled to occur under the Bush
administration. Of the remaining $500 billion in budget
“savings,” fully $311 billion is categorized as “interest
savings” but is actually an additional tax increase on upper
It’s not as if you can’t stimulate economic
growth while at the same time cutting government spending.
President Reagan did it. Reagan adopted budget cuts soon after
he entered office equal to close to 5 percent of the federal
budget at the time. Even with his defense buildup, total federal
spending declined from a high of 23.5 percent of GDP in 1983 to
21.3 percent in 1988 and 21.2 percent in 1989. That’s a 10
percent real reduction in the size of government relative to the
economy. Reagan’s policies conquered inflation and started a
25-year period of economic growth, which would look awfully good
