A Second American Revolution?

The Grumblings have been out there.

Hey folks,

Now it appears to be more than just grumblings. From all the Bailouts, out of control spending, record high continuous Unemployment, Housing bust, Obamacare, and the threat, which is NOW closer to reality, the Obama Regime and those in Congress are "Ruling" or Governing against the Will of the American People.

The American people are watching as Government Grows, and the Private Sector shrinks. They are watching as Government takes over more and more of the Private Sector. They are watching as this Regime IGNORES the only two things that they even exist for. The Constitution, and the People.

So Friday Night, the House takes a step closer to another insane agenda item that WILL kill Jobs, increase EVERYONE'S costs, and put another nail in the coffin of the once great America that we all grew up in. The House Passed their version of Cap and Tax. Their excuse? Of course, a complete and out right lie. The Deep Horizon Accident. The NON Man-made disaster. There is no oil. Nature has actually done more to clean it up than Obama did. But this is their excuse. Of course, API President and CEO Jack Gerard issued the following statement.

“The House bill passed today will kill jobs, threaten our fragile economic recovery and place our energy security at risk. This is an anti-jobs, anti-consumer and anti-energy bill. Instead of addressing the risks of offshore development by improving safety and establishing a robust system for covering the costs of possible future accidents, this bill effectively bans development and sends thousands of workers in offshore communities to the unemployment lines.

“The unlimited liability provisions will drive the vast majority of American companies out of U.S. waters because they will not be able to obtain insurance coverage. Those remaining will be subject to huge cost hikes, reducing energy production, economic growth, American jobs and government revenues.

“While the House recognized that the deepwater moratorium is a jobs killer, we need real action and call on the administration to lift the moratorium to allow our people to get back to work. The inability to develop in the deepwater of the Gulf of Mexico, whether through an explicit moratorium or through policies that create a de-facto moratorium, will cost more than 175,000 jobs a year, the majority of them in already hard-hit Gulf Coast communities.

“Americans want and deserve improvements in offshore safety and this can be accomplished without putting thousands of people out of work and increasing the nation’s reliance on foreign sources of energy.”
Only one thing I would disagree with here. There is NO Recovery going on. Not fragile or any other.

But this is what these people are. This is WHO these people are. And Americans are getting beyond fed up with it all. Back during the Obama Campaign, I heard grumblings about if he was elected, no Birth Certificate, Health Records, School Records, no experience, no clear laid out plan, some in this country were ready to take up arms. I completely waved this off as rants from the "Black Helicopter" type, and said that we needed to educate people as to who and what he really is. I tried. Many of us TRIED. Yet, 58 percent fell for the whole Historic, first Black President, Hope and Change, thing. Here we are.

Now it may not be just the Tin Foil Hat crowd. Now more and more Americans are taking notice. More and more Americans are watching their Freedoms, the Constitution, and this very country DIE right in front of their eyes. They are watching the Obama Regime KILL it. So now? According to Investor's Business Daily - Will Washington's Failures Lead To Second American Revolution? By ERNEST S. CHRISTIAN AND GARY A ROBBINS Posted 07/30/2010 06:30 PM ET

The Internet is a large-scale version of the "Committees of Correspondence" that led to the first American Revolution — and with Washington's failings now so obvious and awful, it may lead to another.

People are asking, "Is the government doing us more harm than good? Should we change what it does and the way it does it?"

Pruning the power of government begins with the imperial presidency.

Too many overreaching laws give the president too much discretion to make too many open-ended rules controlling too many aspects of our lives. There's no end to the harm an out-of-control president can do.
And this one IS out of control. I tried to warn you all of this. I even posted America at Stake. TWICE. I've talked about how it can happen here with THIS type of President. Back to the article.

Bill Clinton lowered the culture, moral tone and strength of the nation — and left America vulnerable to attack. When it came, George W. Bush stood up for America, albeit sometimes clumsily.

Barack Obama, however, has pulled off the ultimate switcheroo: He's diminishing America from within — so far, successfully.

He may soon bankrupt us and replace our big merit-based capitalist economy with a small government-directed one of his own design.

He is undermining our constitutional traditions: The rule of law and our Anglo-Saxon concepts of private property hang in the balance. Obama may be the most "consequential" president ever.

The Wall Street Journal's steadfast Dorothy Rabinowitz wrote that Barack Obama is "an alien in the White House."

His bullying and offenses against the economy and job creation are so outrageous that CEOs in the Business Roundtable finally mustered the courage to call him "anti-business." Veteran Democrat Sen. Max Baucus blurted out that Obama is engineering the biggest government-forced "redistribution of income" in history.

Fear and uncertainty stalk the land. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke says America's financial future is "unusually uncertain."

A Wall Street "fear gauge" based on predicted market volatility is flashing long-term panic. New data on the federal budget confirm that record-setting deficits in the $1.4 trillion range are now endemic.

Obama is building an imperium of public debt and crushing taxes, contrary to George Washington's wise farewell admonition: "cherish public credit ... use it as sparingly as possible ... avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt ... bear in mind, that towards the payment of debts there must be Revenue, that to have Revenue there must be taxes; that no taxes can be devised, which are not ... inconvenient and unpleasant ... ."

Opinion polls suggest that in the November mid-term elections, voters will replace the present Democratic majority in Congress with opposition Republicans — but that will not necessarily stop Obama.

A President Obama intent on achieving his transformative goals despite the disagreement of the American people has powerful weapons within reach. In one hand, he will have a veto pen to stop a new Republican Congress from repealing ObamaCare and the Dodd-Frank takeover of banks.

In the other, he will have a fistful of executive orders, regulations and Obama-made fiats that have the force of law.

Under ObamaCare, he can issue new rules and regulations so insidiously powerful in their effect that higher-priced, lower-quality and rationed health care will quickly become ingrained, leaving a permanent stain.

Under Dodd-Frank, he and his agents will control all credit and financial transactions, rewarding friends and punishing opponents, discriminating on the basis of race, gender and political affiliation. Credit and liquidity may be choked by bureaucracy and politics — and the economy will suffer.

He and the EPA may try to impose by "regulatory" fiats many parts of the cap-and-trade and other climate legislation that failed in the Congress.

And by executive orders and the in terrorem effect of an industrywide "boot on the neck" policy, he can continue to diminish energy production in the United States.

By the trick of letting current-law tax rates "expire," he can impose a $3.5 trillion 10-year tax increase that damages job-creating capital investment in an economy struggling to recover. And by failing to enforce the law and leaving America's borders open, he can continue to repopulate America with unfortunate illegals whose skill and education levels are low and whose political attitudes are often not congenial to American-style democracy.

A wounded rampaging president can do much damage — and, like Caesar, the evil he does will live long after he leaves office, whenever that may be.

The overgrown, un-pruned power of the presidency to reward, punish and intimidate may now be so overwhelming that his re-election in 2012 is already assured — Chicago-style.
Who are these guys that wrote this?

• Christian, an attorney, was a deputy assistant secretary of the Treasury in the Ford administration.

• Robbins, an economist, served at the Treasury Department in the Reagan administration.
Hardly the Tin Foil Hat wearing, Blacked out window types. These are smart and accomplished Americans. People that are watching all this take place.

Folks, November is coming. Right around the corner. You HAVE to do your part. Vote these Loons out. Let's give America a chance here. If the Right win Big, they may even have enough votes to override the inevitable Veto. We must stop this before it goes past the point of no return.
