The left has this Utopian dream for us. Although it has been tried time and time again and always failed, they refuse to let it go. We will all live blissfully, with all our needs taken care of by a benevolent government. All those who want a job will have a job, plus a nice place to live, and healthcare insurance, and college, all paid for by someone else. With all our needs taken care of, there will be no reason for war, and we all will live happily ever after.
The only problem with Utopia is human nature….. and money. Has the left considered that not everyone wants the same things? What would make one person blissfully happy might make someone else miserable. Some love living in an apartment and taking public transportation, others love gardening in their yard, swimming in their own pool, and having lots of pets. Some love open space and having their nearest neighbor at least two miles away. Others live to hunt, or camp, or climb mountains, or explore caves. The United Nations Agenda 21 Utopian plan (that the US signed and has been moving forward on for the last 20 years) calls for all people to live in apartment buildings along transportation corridors. Private ownership of property is considered unfair, because not everyone can afford to own a home. And, since owning property is the greatest source of wealth, the government will take over all property and provide you with a place to live. There will be no privately-owned cars, and we will all use public transportation. We will live and work in the same neighborhood, just like in China. Are you feeling blissful yet?
Another day, another ObamaCare Townhall given by Maxine Waters. Last Saturday a group of us "racist Tea Partiers" went to Torrance to hear Rep. Waters tell us again how wonderful ObamaCare is…… in the face of its obvious failure. Rep. Waters basically told us to move on, nothing to see here. She said it was just a little glitch and would be fixed soon.
Although this was an ObamaCare Townhall, the first thing out of Rep. Waters' mouth was how the "Republican" government shutdown hurt the economy and America's reputation worldwide. Of course, an objective person could see the Republicans' attempt to delay ObamaCare was a reasonable goal considering the White House knew it wasn't ready for implementation.
Liberal talking heads keep chanting the mantra that ObamaCare is the "law of the land", passed by the two houses of Congress and upheld by the Supreme Court. They tell us we need to stop fighting and just accept it.
Let's take a look at how legitimately this "law of the land" was made and upheld. When HR3200 was passed by the House, Nancy Pelosi was Speaker and both houses had a Democrat majority. The Senate had a super majority of 60. Conservatives did a remarkable thing, in one of the bluest states in the country we elected Republican Scott Brown to a seat formerly held by Ted Kennedy, just to break the Senate super majority. As we high fived and celebrated our win, Harry Reid changed the rules. ObamaCare needed to be passed by a super majority and Reid wasn't even sure he could get 60 Democrats to vote for it. Polls showed more than 60% of the population didn't want it. So Reid changed the rules to make ObamaCare a reconcilition bill that can't be filibustered and only needs a simple majority (51 votes) to pass.
Tonight I sent the following message to House Speaker Boehner regarding the task now before Congress, the passing of a bill to fund the operations of the government of the United States:
Dear Speaker Boehner,
Let me make your job, and the jobs of your fellow congressmen, easier. The Constitution was established "...in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty…" In pursuit of these ends, among other stipulations, it requires that "All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives." It further confers the following powers - and only those powers - on the Congress:
For a change today there is some good news to those of us who believe in the Constitution. Yesterday Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer were shown the door by New York voters. Colorado recalled two gun grabbing legislators. And in Washington D.C. THE MILLION MUSLIM MARCH drew only a few hundred while THE MILLION BIKER MARCH drew hundreds of thousands of bikers showing what patriotism is all about. This gives me hope for the future of our country.
As many of you know I speak to anyone who will listen about Agenda 21. I have been very active in fighting it's local implementation through I.C.L.E.I. I have a good friend and fellow Agenda 21 fighter who is a city Councilman in an Orange County city. When his city tried to push through a "Green Cities" plan (i.e. ICLEI) he called his friends and we came up with 246 questions about the plan that would require a good deal of research, time and money to answer. We went to his city council meeting and spoke out against the plan. The result was that the plan was postponed for further study (which will never happen).
