National Freedom Forum

As we deal with President Obama, the most radical left wing President in the history of the United States, four other Presidents in American history come to mind. The first is Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the Declaration of Independence describing the rights of man and the effects of tyranny. President Jefferson also implemented the Louisiana Purchase which more than doubled the size of the United States in our manifest destiny to stretch our great country from sea to shining sea. The next great President was James Madison, who wrote the US Constitution that forms the basis for our republic. This incredible document that expresses "We the People" in its preamble, has for the most part stood the test of time like no other Constitution in the world. President Madison in effect also ended the Revolutionary War of 1776 during the War of 1812 finally establishing the United States as one nation under God free from British tyranny. Several years later, Abraham Lincoln, perhaps our greatest President, acted with malice toward none to preserve the United States as one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all. Finally, President Ronald Reagan was elected after the failed Carter Presidency to end malaise and bring morning to America. President Reagan in his simplicity was a truly great man. Ronald Reagan understood that freedom was the basis for all government decisions as he worked with Pope John Paul to bring down godless Communism and the Soviet evil empire. President Reagan believed in low taxes and individual aspirations and success. Mr. Reagan saw government as the problem and not the solution.

As I see government today, it is neither the problem nor the solution; but rather the opportunity for us to work together in our quest for liberty, truth, justice and prosperity for all. As such, and in view of President Obama's socialist plans for America, I will write frequently about the political issues of the day. I will endorse conservative candidates and use this forum to raise money for them because elections matter. As John Kennedy said during his inauguration, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country". Today, like never before the United States is threatened by bad ideas that could forever change our republic. ObamaCare socialist health care reform is bad for America. This 1000 page bill will turn over the health care system of the United States to the federal government that has bankrupted Social Security and Medicare. The proposed 1,500 page Cap and Tax Bill before Congress is a job killer bill that will result in much higher energy costs for all. Finally, Obama's SwindleUS Package has done nothing to end the recession and in fact has contributed to job losses hindering the recovery if one ever occurs. We all have to stand up and be counted. As we consider the greatness of President's Jefferson, Madison, Lincoln and Reagan, we cannot allow President Obama to fundamentally change our country by implementing a failed socialist ideology that hasn't worked in any country in the world. It is time for change all right. We need to elect candidates to Congress who share our ideals to stop President Obama from passing his agenda. In the weeks and months ahead, please expect to hear more. JM
