Comment on a blog post about conservatism

As long as we stick to the constitution and the intent of our founding fathers. We need to quit trying to legislate morality and entangling ourselves in the affairs of foreign nations.

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness means letting other people do things that we may not agree with. As long as they do not violate the rights of others.

God given inalienable rights are for ALL people, not just Amercan citizens.

We are fond of saying we want to be Constitutionalists, but what if it means re-examining and letting go of some of our long-held notions about foreign affairs and personal liberty and what true conservatism really means????

I hope and pray so.

Still feeling optimistic about Liberty. If only we can get it across that Liberty for us means Liberty for others - whom some of us would rather not have Liberty. If they don't have Liberty today, tomorrow we won't have it either.

The quote 'first they came for.....then they came for me...." comes to mind.

Real Change is Within Reach But Time is Short! - 12.23.09

Dear Editor,

Many people today look around at the mess we are in and feel it’s all hopeless - don’t think they can possibly make a difference. All the bad news coming out of D.C. is enough to cause even the most optimistic to despair!

Sticking your head in the sand is not an option. Do you really want to look your grandchildren in the eye and tell them why you didn’t fight to restore the republic for them? Because you didn’t care, or you were too scared?

I’m here to encourage you! Don’t give up and don’t give in! When you live in fear, enslaved by the government and feel powerless - then they have already won! They have you right where they want you. Only YOU can take responsibility for yourself and choose to be free, choose to live free and exercise your God given rights.

When you are focused on some boogie man - real or imaginary -whether it’s the opposite party or a leader of a foreign country or people whose religion is different from yours - they win because you are distracted from what those in power are really doing, which is running the global empire using whatever presidential puppet they choose, looting our crumbling empire, and using our boys to fight their self-serving wars.

We must stop focusing on what they would have us focus our attention on and look to REAL solutions that will be effective and give us hope!

1. If you want to see real change, then get involved in the party of your choice - government of, by and for the people starts here at the local level. I don’t mean just sending money or voting for their candidates, I mean running for precinct chair (or other local offices) - that is where the system starts -where the control lies.

If we will quit complaining and worrying and get active we can turn the county around and bring it back to its constitutional foundations. Just replacing the corrupt or career politicians won’t change anything long-term. But, by taking back the precincts, then the parties we CAN take back the nation. The deadline to file is Jan 4th.

2. We don’t need to live in fear of DC and wonder what they will do to us next. This healthcare “reform” disaster isn’t the end of the world as we know it. We must call and send letters and demonstrate, but we must concentrate on OUR Texas public servants.

We hold the power to keep D.C. at bay - it’s called nullification. See what Jefferson and Madison said about it.

TEXAS decides if the Fed government has overstepped its bounds NOT the Supreme Court! We call for a special session and we tell our legislators and governor to stand up and say NO!

Texas is known for leading the way, let’s get busy! Other states are working on this as well. Please feel free to email or call me if you’d like to discuss either of these plans!

For Liberty and Justice for ALL!

Ft. Hood Killings - letter to editor 11.17.09
They gave it a different title: "Taking guns away doesn’t mean safety"

No matter who did it or why, it wouldn't have happened if they were allowed to excercise their God given rights to bear arms and protect themselves and others. Taking guns away from people doesn't keep anyone safe. Why is it that most shooting sprees happen where people aren't allowed to carry?

I say the Major is responsible for the deed, but the federal government is responsible for the large number who were wounded and killed. If the others had been armed, he wouldn't have killed near so many or maybe none at all.

So, the focus is on the man and his motive (whether acurate or not) and not on the ones who were responsible for the policy that made the massacre possible.

Dear Editor,

This is a response to a letter about taxpayer funded health care.

That’s nice that your family has been so well cared for by medicare, etc. However we should look at the realities of expanding or even continuing such programs- yes, health care must be paid for- but the idea of taxpayers footing the bill is a rather new one - only a few decades old. The consequences of such programs are unfunded liabilities that our country has no way to pay for, to the tune of 60 +/- Trillion dollars. That means we’ve obligated ourselves to that as a future debt, promise to provide and pay for services we can‘t afford.

Whatever happened to personal responsibility, the free market and real charity? I’ll tell you what’s happened to it - the federal and state government came in and gradually took over just about every aspect of our lives. We look to big brother or nanny state instead of the person in the mirror.

The more government has entangled itself in health care the more the costs have risen and efficiency and quality has gone down. What has government ever taken control of that has IMPROVED?

Why am I, an uninsured person paying for the healthcare of EVERYONE else? Through corporations and businesses passing their expenses to consumers (me) and government passing the programs’ costs to taxpayers (me) - I pay for other’s care and cannot afford my own. There is something wrong with this picture. And no the answer isn’t for me to get in line for Medicaid (which I’m sure our family would qualify for, but we wouldn’t dream of asking others to pay for something that is OUR responsibility!).

Healthcare choices should be left to the individual. No one should be forced -YES - forced to pay for someone else’s personal choices or consequences from those choices.
Imagine how much money we’d have in our pockets if we weren’t forced to subsidize - with everything we buy and taxed on every dime we earn - the care of others.

We could afford our own insurance if we chose to, whatever level we decided and from whatever provider we wanted. Like buying auto or home insurance. Insurance should cover the major catastrophes in life. Every sniffle, flat tire, routine oil change or burned out light bulb shouldn’t be paid for by insurance.

Then we’d also have more money in our pockets to help the truly needy with charity. Which should be in the hands of community and churches, NOT the government.
We need to get back to taking care of ourselves- we do a much better job.

The trillions in promised future benefits is unsustainable. We must work toward removing government all together from those areas of life not authorized by the Constitution and not impose further burdens of debt on our people - such burdens will be born by children not yet born!

Like Melody Brunson’s op-ed about changing buying habits and Ms. Eades letters about helping one another. We must start being more responsible for self , family and neighbors. And strengthen our churches and communities.

Our debt based economy will continue to come crashing down. We’ve been plundered by Austin, Washington, Wall Street and the Federal Reserve (as well as the international bankers). And the looting hasn’t stopped. You think the dollar losing 95% of its purchasing power in the last 90 years is bad, just wait until the inflation which will result from the recent printing of trillions more in monopoly money comes home to roost. We will be the ones to pick up the pieces, we CANNOT look to the ones who’ve done this to us to take care of us.

This will mean a paradigm shift. Back 100 years or more would be a good place to start. Before the Federal Reserve Banking system, before the AMA censuring alternatives to healthcare, before socialism and fascism, before U.S. global empire building, before Federal indoctrination institutions (government controlled public schools), before the propaganda machines run by a few corporations.

It’s not left vs. right folks, it’s tyranny vs. the people.

Personal responsibility and local control are the prescriptions we need.

They printed my letter!!! (not my best work, but I HAD to say something in the short time I had!)
Do proper researchTo the editor:
Swine flu? Is the virus something to be concerned about? Or is it the vaccine we should be concerned about?

I suggest that anyone who is convinced they should follow the government and pharmaceutical companies’ program and line up for their doses of who-knows-what, do a little research first.

Please don’t endanger yourself or your family without making an informed decision.

Check out the list of ingredients in the vaccine. Ask yourself why the vaccine makers have total immunity thanks to our federal government? They will not be held responsible for any deaths or damages from the vaccines.

Check out the swine flu scare and hoax of the 1970s. You can search for the 60 Minutes program that covered it.

Check out “Swine Flu Expose” a book by Eleanora I. McBean, PhD. N.D. -1977

August 29, ABC news article “Doctors Question Who's Severe Swine Flu Warning,” doctors inside and outside the government are starting to question overblown warnings.

Check out the real numbers. More people die from the regular seasonal flu. Is the new Swine Flu as dangerous as they are saying it is? Some contend the vaccine is the real danger.

Check out the lawsuits brought against Baxter for vaccines contaminated with live Avian Flu virus (sent to Europe last spring).

Check out how quickly the vaccine was ready, before or after the outbreak? Has the testing begun yet?

Ask who stands to gain from this hysteria? Who will rake in big bucks? Whose health will be compromised? (The weakest of us).

Ask why all the hysteria? Why all the propaganda? Why tell us it’s so dangerous and deadly when only a handful have actually died from it? More people die from TB each year. Why tell us the vaccine will be mandatory, and we have no right to self-quarantine?

Do we live in the United States of America, or do we live in the former Soviet Union or Nazi Germany? Ask local officials if they will carry out orders to force vaccination or incarcerate those who refuse to be vaccinated?

Find the answers to these questions and tell everyone you know what your research uncovers.

Life (health), Liberty (health care choice) and Property (I own my body),

Printed in the Greenville Herald Banner Monday, June 1st 2009
Referring to comments on the expansion of state funded health care in Texas, Tuesday May 26th, Herald Banner.
Speaking of unconscionable Senator Deuell…
When a portion of wealth is transferred from the person who owns it without his consent and without compensation, whether by force or by fraud - to anyone who does not own it, property is violated, an act of plunder is committed.

This action is exactly what the law is supposed to suppress always and everywhere.
Legal plunder? Does the law take from some persons what belongs to them and give it to others to whom it does not belong? Does the law benefit one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime?

Then abolish this law without delay for if it’s not abolished immediately it will spread, multiply and develop into a system. The person who profits from this law will complain bitterly, defending his “acquired rights”. Do not listen to these arguments - the present day delusion is an attempt to enrich everyone at the expense of everyone else: to make plunder universal under the pretense of organizing it. The picture of eating your seed corn or devouring your own limbs to fill your stomach comes to mind. It does not work.

I have news for you folks, we live in a socialist country. We are slaves to the state. We produce and they plunder us. This is not the Constitutional Republic our founding fathers gave their lives and fortunes for.

We have been frogs in a kettle - not noticing the temperature rise for over 100 years!
We think we are free because we get to keep half of our wages! While the half we keep is eaten away with inflation and usury.

We think we are free because we get to vote. With the pretense of a two party system (two wings on the same bird of prey!) and an easily hacked electronic voting system that ensures an outcome the powerful group behind the curtain desires and a controlled media that gives us the news they want us to have. Yes, we are free, as free as a caged bird or hamster.

Our founding fathers fought for our God given liberties and for lack of interest and being too trusting of our elected employees we have found ourselves worse off than they ever were. This is a disgrace and it will destroy us.

What can we do about it?
1. Admit our own guilt.
2. Inform ourselves.
3. Get involved.
4. Reach out to others.

Duty is ours, the results are God’s. John Quincy Adams

Support Texas Legislation Against Real ID!!!

Please go sign this petition and send it around to others.
We need 1,500 signatures ASAP to get a committee hearing!! Lack of federal funding, serious privacy and civil liberties concerns over the Real ID Act of 2005 and its regulations have provoked 25 states to move legislation against the national ID program including Texas. HCR 180 is that legislation.Please show your support for HCR 180 in order to stop Homeland Security from anchoring your identity to a globalized identity grid, complete with surveillance technologies in our ID cards like, RFID and biometrics (DNA, facial recognition technology, body scans). Sign our petition!!
