Sorry for the sparse blogging of late. Suddenly summer has sprung into action, and between being outside with my gardens, kids’ activities, weddings, and life in general, and a sudden hearkening back to the sleeping in summer days of my adolescence, blogging has taken a vacation, too.
Not that there’s nothing about which to write; on the contrary. The Iranian sham election and Obama’s silence on it (as Rep. Pences said, “Reagan didn’t tell Gorbechov, “That wall is none of our business,”) the ever-rising unemployment rate, the still-spiraling economy (despite the stimulus),Obama’s Chicago thug politics shining through in his unjust firing of Americorp IG Walpin, and the state-run media’s upcoming ABC propaganda spot pushing Obamacare. This last is particularly amazing.
ABC, now known as the “All Barack Channel,” is set to run an hour-long primetime special pushing Obama’s government-run healthcare scheme. And no, there will be no opposing voices allowed. Bye-bye to the old golden rule of objective journalism: Always present two sides to the story. That is not important any longer.
Again, all this goes back to the main principle of liberty: If the govt. has too much power, then freedom is diminished. There are some people out there who have the opinion that Americans will trade their liberties in order to be taken care of (not actually, by the way, no govt. can do that). But that they will willingly forego individual liberty on the promise of govt.-granted security. I still have faith, though, that the majority of Americans still feel the life-blood of freedom coursing through their veins, fought for and won by our predeccesors, and that the insidious nature of Obama’s quest for authoritarianism and total control will become too much for them to bear willingly.
People all across America are waking up. They see their freedoms being encroached upon, they see their children and grandchildrens’ futures being spent into oblivion, they see the unustainable spending going on and the wasting of their tax dollars, and they’re reaching their tipping point.
