Obama & Oil Drilling - Don't Be Fooled

President Obama recently announced that he will permit some oil drilling at certain off shore sites and that the federal government will also allow some nuclear plant development. Don't be fooled by these actions. President Obama and the Socialists who control Congress are radical environmental wackos intent on passing CAP & TAX. In fact, the House of Representatives has already enacted The American Clean Energy and Security Act concocted by radical Socialist Congressman Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Congressman Henry Waxman of California. This bill is stalled in the Senate so fortunately it is not yet law; but now that Obama has crammed HealthScare down the throats of the American people, the President thinks he can get his way on CAP & TAX by appearing to be more moderate related to oil drilling and nuclear development. And, or Obama will attempt to use Executive Orders to implement CAP & TAX bypassing the Senate altogether. Again, don't be fooled by these actions.

If enacted and signed by the President in the name of phony, baloney Global Warming science, The American Clean Energy Act requires that the US cut total American green house gas emissions by 83% less than was emitted in 2005 by 2050. That is, the US will be mandated, by mid century, to cut greenhouse gases to less than one billion tons annually. The last time the US emitted one billion tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere was in 1910 when the US Population was one fourth what it is today and our GDP was just 4% of what it is today.

This Socialist Scheme will result in much higher energy costs for all, much higher taxes, the destruction of the US economy and a much lower standard of living for all Americans. So much so that if CAP & TAX is enacted into law, the United States will experience even higher unemployment than today and perhaps another Great Depression. CAP & TAX is insane, environmental wacko policy, not common sense environmental legislation. And, it is not about greenhouse emissions anyway, it is really about the federal government gaining even more control over our lives. We must all stand up and say, HELL NO to CAP & TAX and all of Obama's Socialist Schemes that will cause the economic collapse of the United States.

We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing common sense Conservatives that support limited government, a balanced budget, lower taxes and less regulation, real energy independence, which includes developing current energy sources as a bridge to the future, term limits, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. CAP & TAX is just one more of Obama's Socialist Schemes that must be stopped at all cost. We must take back of our country. We can do it. We must do it.

Time For a Constitutional Convention

It is time for two thirds of the states, as represented by their legislatures and as permitted by the US Constitution, to establish a Constitutional Convention to propose amendments to the US Constitution to deal with the abuses of the federal government and to finish the work of our Founding Fathers. This is a difficult process as it should be; but since our federal elected representatives have ignored the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, to the point of bankrupting our nation, it is now time that WE THE PEOPLE take power back for the people.

Seven common sense Constitutional amendments are needed to create proper checks and balances between the states and the federal government as follows;

Federal Term Limits: Two, Six Year Terms for the US Senate and Four three year terms for the House of Representatives are sufficient. This change means that these elected representatives would be limited to 12 years in the same office. This must be done to help end the power of incumbency and the corruption we see in Washington DC and to help insure that we have citizen politicians who have worked in the real world and who must live by their legislative actions.

Balance Budget Amendment: Unless there is an official declaration of war, or national emergency, as ratified by two thirds of the states, the federal government should be required to maintain a balanced budget without borrowing to achieve it. Borrowing would only be permitted to fund a declared or war, or ratified national emergency and only for such purposes. There can be no wiggle room in this Amendment.

Limits on Federal Taxation Authority: Unless there is an official declaration of war, or national emergency as ratified by two thirds of the states, the ability to raise federal taxes should require approval of two thirds of the states. And, in the event federal taxes are raised to deal with war, or a national emergency, such taxes should be reduced to original levels once such event is declared over by ratification of two thirds of the states.

Limits on the Federal Government: Health care and education should be totally governed by state law. Any federal funding for such benefits, or services should be in the form of per capita grants to the states to be used for said purpose; but at the sole discretion of the states.

Limits on Federal Land Ownership: In no case shall the federal government be permitted to own and control in excess of 5% of the land of any state.

Application of Federal Laws: Amendment should provide that federal elected officials and federal employees cannot be exempted from any federal laws or programs.

Securing the Borders of the United States: This amendment would REQUIRE the federal government to secure our borders, by whatever means necessary, including posting the United States Army on our borders, to stop the flow of illegal immigration. In the event, the federal government fails to do so, state governments along our borders would have the right to use state national guards to secure the borders at federal government expense.

These Amendments and perhaps others should be put before all states. The process requires approval by three fourths of the states to ratify Constitutional Amendments. Our federal elected representatives have proven that they cannot be trusted to protect and preserve the interests of the United States. Socialists like Obama, Reid and Pelosi have made the need for these common sense Constitutional Amendments even more imperative.

We must take back our country. It is clear that the only real way to do it, in addition to electing Conservatives who support limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, a strong national defense, real energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values is to amend the US Constitution to deal with the abuses of the federal government. We can do it. We must do it to save our country for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Utah - State's Rights Revolt Begins

A dozen or more states are suing the federal government to stop Obama's Socialist HealthScare Plan on constitutional grounds and that is a good thing because if not stopped it will bankrupt the United States. But this is just the beginning of a state's right revolt that is necessary to take power back from the federal government that is reserved in the US Constitution for our states and for WE THE PEOPLE. In an unprecedented move, Republican Governor Gary Herbert of the state of Utah has exercised the right of eminent domain to take back some of the US Government's most valuable parcels in Utah. Apparently, more than 50% of the land in Utah is owned by the federal government. This is not primarily federal parks; but rather land that is probably controlled by the Federal Bureau of Land Management, or perhaps other federal agencies.

This is not unusual. The reality is that the Socialists that control Congress and their environmental wacko supporters from the East and West Coasts dictate land use in many western states. This includes water rights, which impact farmers and ranchers and the sale of mineral rights and, or the denial of the right to develop energy in these energy rich states. In fact, in a real travesty, 86.1% of the land of the state of Nevada is owned by the federal government. The question is why? Republican Governor Gibbons of Nevada should immediately exercise the same right of eminent domain to regain large tracts of land currently owned by the federal government in Nevada to make those tracts available for development, or various commercial uses to generate badly needed tax revenues for Nevada.

As a resident of Nevada, I certainly don't want Socialists like President Obama, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi or even Senator Dirty Harry Reid, who is from Nevada, dictating land use in Nevada. The people of Nevada are fully capable of determining highest and best use of our state's land recognizing common sense environmental concerns. We don't need Washington telling us what to do with our land. It is time the state of Nevada and other Western states fly the yellow revolutionary flag to tell Obama, Don't Tread on Me.

The states and the federal government are headed toward a collision that is likely to result in a Constitutional Convention called by the Red States, which are a greater number than the blue states, to reassert states rights. And, that would be a good thing. It is becoming clearer by the day that we have a federal government that is out of control. We must assert additional states rights related to control over federal taxation, deficit spending, term limits etc. More checks and balances are needed to prevent the reckless actions and Socialist schemes we see coming out of Washington DC that are bankrupting our nation and will lead to the financial collapse of the United States.

Clearly, we must take back our country by electing common sense Conservatives at all levels of government that support limited government, a balanced budget at the state and federal level, lower taxes and less regulation, a strong national defense, the right to bear arms, real energy independence, the sanctity of life and family values. We must get back to the tenets of our Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers rather than as contrived by current and former Presidents, Congresses and the Courts. The states rights revolt that is just beginning will be a long fight; but it is a fight worth fighting to save our country. We can take back our country. We must do it for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

The Case for Federal Term Limits

After President Franklin Roosevelt defied the two term precedent originally established by George Washington and was elected to four terms in office, the political establishment of both parties moved swiftly to amend the US Constitution to provide for a maximum of two terms for the US Presidency. The politicians probably did this because of their own political ambitions; but also because they probably saw the abuse of power that came when one person was in office for too long.

Now it is time to go the rest of the way. The US Constitution should be amended to allow someone to serve no more than two terms for the US Senate, 12 years in total, or 6 terms for the House of Representatives, again 12 years in total. This is necessary because of current trends. Between 1789 and 2002, just 13.9% of House Members and 21.9% of Senators served for 12 years or more. However, in today's Congress 42.9% of House Members and 45% of Senators have been in office for 12 years or more. Many of them have been in same office for 20 years or more. We see the end result. We have many Members of Congress of both parties who are completely out of touch with the American people. That is the reason the Socialists voted for HealthScare when 55% of Americans oppose this legislation and there are Tea Party Protests in the streets.

Our Founders never intended to create a political aristocracy or elite in the United States, which is what we have today. We need "citizen politicians" who have recently worked in the real world and who know what it takes to create jobs and make payroll every month. Going to Washington should be done is the spirit of duty to our country; but with the full intention of serving for a limited time period and then going back to the real world. In many cases, we have career politicians in Washington, often with family wealth as their means of support, who have never worked in the real world. The Kennedy's are a prime example of this scenario. And, often candidates run on a platform of limited time in government and then once there, just never leave. There have been members of Congress that are so feeble they literally have to be wheeled into the Chamber. That is ridiculous.

Clearly, most of the Socialists in Congress are career politicians who see serving in Congress as their life vocation because government is what they do for a living. As a result, politicians like Obama, Reid and Pelosi and many other Socialists, many of whom are wealthy, are the most detached from the real world; yet they somehow profess to represent the "little people". To be fair, there are Republicans similarly positioned. John McCain married an heiress, which has allowed him to stay in Congress for 30 years.

Career politicians, in office for years, have proven to be a recipe for corruption and bribes of one sort of another. HealthScare was a prime example of crooked deals and bribes. We need federal term limits to end the corruption and bring fresh, real world ideas to our government. And, we need politicians in office who will have to live under their handiwork. Isn't it interesting that federal elected officials always seem to exempt themselves from the laws they pass to govern the rest of us. Federal employees are not on bankrupt Social Security. Instead they get lucrative federal pensions that offer 3 or 4 times the pay-out as the highest Social Security benefits. And, the Members of Congress just excluded themselves from Obama's Socialist HealthScare Plan. Why is that?

We need term limits for the Members of Congress. 12 years is long enough to serve in any one office. Career politicians can run for other offices. By ending the corrupting power of incumbency, it will give others a chance to serve. This will be the year that many Socialist incumbents will be removed from office because Americans are mad as hell and determined to stop Obama's Socialist Schemes; but normally incumbents nearly always win because money flows to them from those vested in them. In fact, in 2008, 94% of incumbents were re-elected to the House and 83% to the Senate because of this money game.

We must stop this corruption once and for all. Term limits should be a litmus test when voting this year. Politicians that support Term Limits should get our votes in November. Those politicians that do not support Term Limits should be relegated to the ash heap of history.

The Tea Party Movement in Searchlight, Nevada

On March 27th, the Tea Party Movement began the November election campaign with a kick off protest in none other than Searchlight, Nevada the desert home town of Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid, the Majority Leader of the US Senate. Searchlight is a little town of about 1,000 people, 55 miles from Las Vegas. No doubt many of the residents of Searchlight are probably related to Dirty Harry Reid. Certainly, the inhabitants of Searchlight, who probably support their home boy Harry, must have been stunned when more than 10,000 members of the Tea Party Movement showed up with their Yellow Revolutionary Don't Tread on Me flags to send Dirty Harry a simple message.

Harry, you are going back to Searchlight next November as the people of Nevada send you into retirement and back to that desert hell hole in the middle of no where that you call home. Dirty Harry did not hear us in Washington last September 12th, when a million patriotic Americans showed up to say HELL NO to Obama's Socialist agenda, so we came to Dirty Harry's home town hoping he would finally get the message. Since Dirty Harry has referred to the Tea Party Movement as an "angry mob" and his good friend Socialist Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco called us "astro turf", it is clear that Harry just does not get the message. So, based the actions of Dirty Harry Reid, who is still in denial and tone deaf, Reid has to go bye bye in November. Those of us like me that live in Nevada, just can't wait to vote to get rid of Senator Dirty Harry Reid once and for all!! The bumper stickers on cars all over Nevada say "Anyone But Harry".

The Tea Party protest in Searchlight is just the beginning of many stops across the country that will culminate on April 15th, tax confiscation day in Washington DC. And, how appropriate since Obama intends to spend $10 Billion to hire 16,000 more IRS agents to serve as America's Gestapo to enforce Obama's HealthScare Plan and who knows what else. If we don't stop all of this and soon, don't be surprised one day if you do not have an IRS agent knocking at your door because you have violated one of the crazy laws related to Chairman Obama's Socialist Schemes; some of which are coming by Executive Order to bypass the Congress. Remember, Obama plans to redistribute income from the 50% of the people who pay all the income taxes in this country to the 50% who pay little or no income taxes, his PEEP's, in the name of "social justice". And, the IRS will be used as Obama's jack boot enforcers.

We have to take back our country. The Tea Party Movement is implementing the largest grass roots protests since the Vietnam War, except this time around instead of the left wing Socialists in the streets, it is the silent majority of hard working, patriotic Americans who are silent no more standing up to JUST SAY NO to Obama's Socialist Schemes. Obama told us to "shut up" and go away, well that is not going to happen any time soon.

We are going to take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing common sense Conservatives who support limited government, a balanced budget, term limits, lower taxes and less regulations, a strong national defense, real energy independence, repeal of Obama's HealthScare Plan, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This is the winning platform in 2010 and 2012 as we take back the Congress and the Presidency.

Most important, we will elect Conservatives who support the US Constitution as written by our Founders, not as contrived by current and former Presidents, Congresses and the Courts. We will take back our country in 2010 and 2012 with the help of the Tea Party Movement. We can do it. We must do it for the sake of our nation and our children and grandchildren.

Senator John McCain In Arizona - Time To Go

Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona is running for reelection to the US Senate once again. McCain is being challenged by JD Hayworth, a former Congressman and unquestionable Conservative in the Republican primary. I think it is time for John McCain to step aside. Though we all respect McCain for his military service to our country, he ran a very poor Presidential campaign that cost the Republican Party and the nation the Presidency. Though I donated money to the McCain Presidential campaign and voted for him, it was because we had no choice; not because I thought he was the best person for the job. The fact is, it was McCain or Socialist evil, so I chose McCain. However, McCain is a convenient Conservative who has "reached across the aisle" on immigration reform and campaign finance reform, among other issues during his career, supporting legislation that was often not the Conservative position. McCain is too willing to compromise with the Socialists in Congress, which is unacceptable to real Conservatives.

In addition, as someone who supports term limits for all federal and state politicians, of both parties, John McCain has been in office for too long. We need citizen politicians who have worked in the real world, not just married well. That is not possible when elected officials have been in the same office for 30 or more years. Two six year terms in the Senate (12 years) should be the limit. John McCain has served many more than two terms. It is time for fresh ideas and the election of real Conservatives not convenient Conservatives, who profess orthodoxy during the primaries; but then forget about it once elected. That is John McCain's profile.

JD Hayworth is starting to pull away in the polls. Hayworth has a real chance of defeating McCain. Of course, the Republican establishment, including Sarah Palin, is supporting McCain out of loyalty to him; but I think it is time for a change. Google JD Hayworth, go on his web site and donate monies to support JD Hayworth. We need new blood in Washington that will fight for Conservative ideals and elected officials that we know will support limited government, lower taxes and regulations, a balanced budget, a strong national defense, term limits, the right to bear arms, real energy independence, the sanctity of life and family value. There can be no compromise on these issues. It is time for John McCain to go because he is a big government Republican. We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012. We can do it. We must do it.

President Obama - Foreign Policy Amateur

As we continue to work toward the repeal of President Obama's Socialist HealthScare Plan, we also need to pay close attention to Obama's foreign policy failures because they are dangerous. President Obama apparently did not study International Relations 325 and/or maybe he still thinks he is back in a college classroom, or on the streets of Chicago as a Community Organizer rather sitting in the Oval Office as the President of the United States. Clearly, Obama's naive, lack of experience in the real world is impacting our foreign policy and it is dangerous.

President Obama seems to confuse our enemies with our friends. Obama and his Attorney General want to give Terrorists the same rights as American citizens. So rather than try Terrorists in Military Tribunals, which is completely appropriate in a time of war, the Obama Administration has pushed for Terrorists to be tried in federal courts, which would be a complete circus. Hopefully, even many Socialists in his own party are opposed to Obama's Scheme. And, while Obama wants to extend the rights of an American citizen to Terrorists, the Obama Justice Department under Attorney General Holder is trying CIA agents and Navy Seals for doing their jobs. The government claims that our guys were a little too tough on Terrorists who want to murder Americans. Go figure.

And, then there is Iran. When will President Obama realize that the leaders of the Iranian government (not most Iranian people) are fanatics that hate the United States. Every time Obama naively extends a hand, they chop it off making a fool of our President. That is what happens when the President of the United States bows to foreign leaders like never in our history. Obama is seen as weak overseas. The Iranians are developing nuclear weapons. We either need to destroy their nuclear capability, which only we can do, or stop all the silly posturing and deal with a nuclear Iran because it is making Obama look very weak overseas.

And, of course, since Obama can't seem to deal with Iran or North Korea, he has decided instead to wage war on Israel because they are building apartments in THEIR COUNTRY. This is ridiculous. Israel is a sovereign state and just because the Palestinians will never agree to peace because they do not recognize Israel's right to exist, there is no reason for Israel to put life on hold. Israel is our staunches ally in the Middle East. They share our Judeo Christian heritage, legal system and democratic values. President Obama needs to do a better job of recognizing our friends from our enemies. The enemies of Israel like Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Queda and Iran are the enemies of the United States. Obama needs to get with the program and defend Israel and not criticize them for exercising their sovereign rights.

We can't forget about China and Russia. Obama is trying to pressure China into revaluing their currency, which does need to happen. However, the Chinese, who are our bankers will not be pressured by this young, naive President so relations with China continue to deteriorate. And, at the same time that we face nuclear threats from Iran and North Korea, President Obama is unilaterally giving up nuclear weapons in a deal with Russia. If anything we need to maintain our nuclear deterrent; particularly if we are not going to destroy Iran's nuclear capabilities.

President Obama is Jimmy Carter II and we know the end of that story. Carter was a miserable failure and perhaps the worst President in American history both related to domestic and foreign policy. Obama is intent on following in his foot steps. It is bad enough that Obama's SwindleUS Plan has retarded our economic recovery as we have lost even more jobs since Obama took office; but Obama's failure in foreign policy are dangerous. Oh where oh where is Ronald Reagan when we need him? President Obama is a clear and present danger to the people of the United States. It becomes more clear each day that he cannot be trusted with our national security.

For that reason, we must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives who support limited government, a balanced budget, lower taxes and less regulation, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy independence, repeal of HealthScare, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. We can do it. We must do it to save our country for our children and grandchildren.

President Obama - Illegal Aliens Next

As one of President Obama's sleazy deals to buy Congressional votes for his Socialist HealthScare Scheme, the President had to promise the Hispanic Caucus in the House of Representatives that he would support amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens. Of course, this fits into Obama's agenda anyway because once these illegal aliens gain legal status they will then be eligible for Obama's HealthScare Plan at tax payer expense. To fund health care benefits for 12 million illegal aliens, there will have to be higher taxes, or cuts in benefits for the currently insured. Just wait and see. This will be the excuse for a Value Added Tax in the United States like the 16 - 22% national sales taxes that exist in Europe.

And since Obama's PEEP's, who pay little or no income taxes now, will receive a tax credit for the VAT as well, again this national sales tax will fall on the 50% of Americans who pay all taxes in the United States. This is just another redistribution of income scheme that will be used by Obama and the Socialists who control Congress to fund health care for illegal aliens. By the way, the politically correct term for illegal aliens is "undocumented residents" because left wing Socialists do not want to use the word "illegal" in reference to people who have entered the United States illegally. Go figure!

The United States may be the only country in the world where someone can enter the US illegally, have children in the United States and then have their children gain American citizenship status just because they were born within our borders. Clearly, we need a Constitutional Amendment to solve this problem. It is ridiculous that anyone born in the United States to illegal aliens would automatically be an American citizen.

In any case, we will now see President Obama and the Socialists who control Congress focus on "immigration reform", which is just another word for amnesty. We do need common sense immigration reform related to the illegal alien problem. First, we need to gain control of our border before anything else is done. A country that cannot control its borders will not be a country for very long. We continue to be invaded by citizens of Mexico to work in our country. Don't get me wrong, I have great respect for the hard work done by illegal aliens in the United States. They often take jobs that Americans refuse to do. The problem is that illegal aliens are net tax users rather than tax payers. Since illegal aliens tend to work in low income jobs, they pay little or no income taxes. Yet illegal aliens end up in our emergency ward hospitals and schools costing our states billions of dollars each year that are not reimbursed by the federal government. This is one of the reasons California is bankrupt.

We do need common sense immigration reform that could include a guest worker program; but otherwise anyone attempting to become a citizen of the United States should go through normal legal, immigration procedures and wait their turn in line and not attempt to gain citizenship through invasion of our country. The Socialists will push for granting amnesty along the road to citizenship because they see these people as their PEEP's, who will vote for them because of government dependence. This is the ulterior motive for amnesty; more voters for Socialists.

To achieve common sense immigration reform, we must take back our country by electing Conservatives in 2010 and 2012 who support limited government, free market capitalism, lower taxes and less regulation, a strong national defense, term limits, control of our borders, the right to bear arms, real energy independence, the sanctity of life and family values. Most important, we must elect Conservatives who support the US Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers, not current or former Presidents, Congresses and the Courts. We can do it. We must do it to save our country for our children and grandchildren.

The Socialists - The Battle Is Before Us

With the election of Chairman Obama, the Socialist President of the United States and the Socialist control of the US Congress, it has become very clear with the enactment of Obama's HealthScare Plan, that the battle is before us to save our country. HealthScare was the product of bribes, special deals and corruption to buy Congressional votes. It is estimated that 400,000 abortions annually will now be funded with tax payer dollars under HealthScare. All will soon experience insurance premium increases because of mandates on insurance companies. 22 million Senior Citizens will lose their Medicare Advantage Programs. There will be $500 Billion in Medicare cuts and $500 Billion in new taxes that will impact all Americans one way or another. There will be death panels and rationing of medical care. HealthScare will cause the loss of millions of jobs and bankrupt our country, just as it is bankrupting the state of Massachusetts that has already tried this universal health care experiment. The Battle now moves to the states that will challenge the Constitutionality of HealthScare in the Courts.

But this is just the beginning. The Socialists real goal is to redistribute income by raising taxes of one sort or another to grow the government to control all aspects of our lives to reward their PEEP's, who pay little or no income taxes, and big unions that fund their Socialist Schemes. We cannot let this happen. This is nothing less than a battle to preserve our freedoms. The Battle is now before us. All elections are national. It will be necessary for Conservatives to unite, including the Tea Party Movement, to focus on defeating these Socialists to take back our country in 2010 and 2012. There are perhaps 60 or more members of the House of Representatives in swing districts that are vulnerable and at least 10 Senators, all of whom must be defeated in 2010.

We must focus on these Socialists to take back the Congress to effectively end the Obama Presidency in 2010. As we proceed in the months ahead, the National Freedom Forum will name names as we target specific Socialists for defeat. It will be necessary to raise several hundred million dollars to defeat these Socialists; but we must do it to save our country.

Certainly, we will start with Socialist Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, who is probably the most hated man in Nevada. Harry Reid is extremely unpopular in Nevada and he will be defeated with concerted effort. And, there will be other Socialists that we must target by raising money to send them into permanent retirement.

The Battle is indeed before us and the road is clear. We must elect Conservatives in 2010 and 2012 who support limited government, lower taxes and less regulations, a balanced budget, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life, family values and THE REPEAL OF HEALTHSCARE. Most important, we must elect Conservatives who support the US Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as has been violated by current and former Presidents, Congresses and the Courts. We must throw these corrupt Socialists out of office in a tidal wave of love for our country. We can do it. We must do it to save our country for the sake of our children and grandchildren. We are fighting for the American dream.

Chairman Obama - The March To Tyranny

Chairman Obama, the leader of the Socialist Party of America, proclaimed on Saturday that we are just hours away from passing his HealthScare Plan, which will bring tyranny to the United States. The Democrat Socialists who control Congress, that now should just be referred to as Socialists, will achieve their long sought goal of government control or take over of health care, the banks, insurance companies, auto companies, student loans, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac etc. etc. etc. And, this is just the beginning if these Socialists are not stopped by the election of Conservatives in 2010 and 2012 to effectively end the Obama Presidency.

The United States is at a cross road. The passage of HealthScare should be a wake up call for all who love freedom. This fight is not just about health care; but rather about government control over every aspect of our lives. The Socialist Party of America seeks to control our incomes, our families, our health care, the energy we use, our right to bear arms and eventually our right to free speech. It is no accident that while traveling in China, I could not post on this blog because the Chinese Communists block access to all forms of free speech.

With the Tea Bag Revolution coming on strong as a political threat to the Socialists in America; don't be surprised if we don't see Socialist moves in our own country to control free speech, or really criticism of them as they attempt to "transform" our country. Nothing would surprise me related to the actions of these Socialists, including President Obama, who will do anything necessary to enact his Socialist Schemes. In the process, President Obama and the other Socialists in Congress are bankrupting the United States.

This will all be done in the name of "social justice" as they seek to redistribute income to make everyone more "equal". It will all back fire because the higher taxes and regulations that these Socialists intend to impose on the American people, if not stopped and soon, will cause millions to lose their jobs. Of course, Obama and the Socialists want the job losses and another "crisis" that they can use as an excuse to grow the government ever bigger to support their Peeps, namely those who pay little or no income taxes at all and the big unions in the US that fund their Socialist Schemes. This is all part of a grand scheme designed to destroy free market capitalism, which the Socialists see as evil instead of the only basis for prosperity in world history.

We must stop all of this from happening. We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives who support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. And, we need to elect Conservatives who support the US Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers, not as has been violated by former Presidents, Congresses and the Courts.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives committed to the repeal of Obama's Socialist HealthScare Plan, which includes the funding of abortions at tax payer expense. In doing so, we must sweep these Socialists, including Chairman Obama, out of office in a tidal wave of love for our country. We can do it. We must do it to save our country for our children and grandchildren.

President Obama - "Rules, Schmooles"

President Obama told us during the Presidential campaign that he would bring transparency to Washington DC and change the culture. Obama has changed the culture all right. The President has appointed left wing radicals and Communists to his Administration. And, the crooked "special deals" and pay off 's for votes to enact Obama's HealthScare Plan are the most blatant and ugly in American history. During a recent hard ball interview by Brett Baier of Fox News, the President dismissed procedures required by the US Constitution to enact new laws as "Rules, Schmooles" because Democrat Socialist Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is planning to use the Slaughter Strategy, named after a Congresswoman, by implementing "deem and pass" to avoid a vote in the House on the Senate version of HealthScare. Pelosi is ignoring the US Constitution because she does not have the votes needed to pass HealthScare as written by the US Senate, which is now necessary because the Senate does not have the votes to pass the House version of the bill because of more restrictive abortion language.

What is even worse is that President Obama admitted to Brett Baier that he does not know all the details in the Senate version of HealthScare; nor does he care. This is political malpractice. What Obama does know is that he wants the government take over of our health care system and while he is at it as part of the "deal" student loans are now included as a rider as part of Obama's big government Socialist Scheme to "transform" America into a Socialist nation. So if it means ignoring the US Constitution to get there, so be it.

Each day, it becomes more clear that President Obama is a clear and present danger to the United States of America and our way of life. It does not matter to Chairman Obama that 55% of the people oppose HealthScare according to a new Fox News Poll. Big Brother Obama knows what is best for all of us because we are too stupid to understand his HealthScare Scheme, which apparently not even he understands. It should be obvious to all that Obama is totally focused on enacting his Socialist agenda at any cost, the same way that Stalin and Mao brought brutal Communism to their countries. We know the end of this story and we just can't let it happen. We must fight back.

Obama supports big government, higher taxes, redistribution of income and public employee Unions that are bankrupting our nation all at the expense of our freedoms. Most of the people in the Obama Administration are left wing radicals and even Communists that are determined to transform America into a Socialist nation where all are equally miserable and dependent on the government. WE THE PEOPLE MUST JUST SAY NO, NO, NO!!

We must take back our country by electing common sense Conservatives who support free market capitalism, limited government, a balanced budget, lower taxes and less regulations, real health care reform, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. Most of all, we must elect Conservatives who support the US Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers not former Presidents, Congresses or the Courts. This is the winning platform. We must sweep Obama and these corrupt Democrat Socialists out of office in 2010 and 2012 in a tidal wave of freedom to save our country. We can do it. We must do it for our children and grandchildren.

Obama's HealthScare and The US Constitution

It appears that President Obama and the Democrat Socialists who control Congress will ignore the US Constitution to ram HealthScare down the throats of the American people. Aside from the danger posed by HealthScare to us all, the additional threat is the complete disregard for our Constitution. It is starting to look like we must salute the President as Heil Obama, or as Chairman Obama because the President is beginning to act more and more like Adolf Hitler or Mao Tse Tung. Obama is so intent on "transforming" America into a Socialist nation, that he and his Democrat Socialist co-conspirators in Congress will do anything, legal or not, to make it happen.

It is so bad that 37 states are planning litigation based on Constitutional issues if Speaker of the House Democrat Socialist Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco uses her "deem and pass" scheme to actually avoid a House vote on the Senate version of HealthScare because she does not have the votes needed to pass this monstrosity. There is a pretty good chance that HealthScare is a violation of Article 1, Section 7 of the US Constitution. States are also challenging the mandates on individuals and the states in Obama's HealthScare Plan. Who knows this could result in a Constitutional Convention if three quarters of the states vote to convene one.

Obama, Pelosi and Reid, the Democrat Socialists that control our government are ignoring the will of WE THE PEOPLE who are saying in every way we know how, HELL NO!!! We don't want a government take over of our health care system. We do need common sense reforms to deal with pre-existing conditions, life time caps, the ability to buy insurance across state lines, limits on malpractice awards and perhaps a government reinsurance plan to help bring down costs etc. And, perhaps there should be subsidies for poor people to help them buy health insurance, but none of this requires a government take over of the health care system, which represents one sixth of the US economy.

Obama's HealthScare Plan has nothing to do with health care. It is instead all about government control, benefiting the big public employee unions, redistribution of income, higher taxes and premiums, more regulations, death panels and rationing care. WE DON'T WANT IT. WE DON'T WANT IT. WE DON'T WANT IT. How many times must we say WE DON'T WANT IT for Obama and the Democrat Socialists to hear the will of the people. Clearly, President Obama is not listening, which is probably the reason his approval rating is now at just 46% according to the Gallup Poll. 47% of the people now disapprove of the job Obama is doing. Aside from HealthScare, Obama has also been a complete failure related to job creation and foreign policy. Obama is Jimmy Carter II, which is enough to make one stay in bed until Obama can be dumped in 2012.

We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing common sense Conservatives who support limited government, a balance budget, lower taxes and less regulation, term limits, a strong national defense, real health care reform, real energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life, family values and the US Constitution as conceived by our Founding Fathers not former Presidents, Congresses or the Courts. We must sweep these Democrat Socialists out of office in a tidal wave of disgust. We must take back our country. We can do it. We must do it for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Social Security and The US Credit Rating

The day of reckoning is coming. President Obama and the Democrat Socialists that control Congress are actively working to bankrupt the United States. Obama's reckless deficit spending, projected to be $10 Trillion in the next ten years, if allowed to continue, is likely to be three times that amount. And, Obama wants to add a new HealthScare entitlement. This is fiscal insanity. This level of deficit spending is like no other in the history of the United States and it will lead to economic disaster if not stopped and soon. We are already seeing the warning signals.

It was just announced that for the first time since the 80's, the Social Security Administration will take in less money in 2010 than it pays out. The Social Security surpluses that have been funding deficit spending for years are over. In fact, the Social Security Administration will have to retrieve $29 Billion in federal IOU's to pay current recipients their Social Security checks this year. Since 1965, the federal government has given the Social Security Administration Trillions in IOU's as they stole Social Security contributions to pay for current operating expenses. There is NO Social Security Lock Box. The money is gone.

As 78 million Baby Boomers retire in the next 10 years, the Social Security Administration will have to come up with about $44 Trillion that is not there. This unfunded liability will have to be funded by the federal government as the Social Security Administration attempts to retrieve those IOU's. However, it is projected that by 2037, Social Security will be completely bankrupt. If not stopped, the Obama Administration is planning Trillions in deficit spending already in the next ten years even with tax increases, so just where is this money going to come from to fund Social Security?

That is exactly the question Moody's Investor Service is asking as they have warned that if Obama's deficit spending is not brought under control that the credit rating of the United States will have to be lowered from its Triple A rating. If that happens, the United States is on its way to becoming a banana republic that will have to pay much higher interest rates to borrow money in the financial markets. The United States is reaching unsustainable debt levels. If this continues, the interest on the debt alone will begin to eat up most of our tax dollars. The end result will be that the Federal Reserve will be forced to monetize the debt, which will lead to much higher interest rates for all, high inflation and the collapse of the dollar.

To prevent all of this, we must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing common sense Conservatives who support a balanced budget, lower taxes and less regulation, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy Independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. We must get back to the tenets of the US Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not former Presidents, Congresses and the Courts. This is the winning platform. We have to elect grown up's who have worked in the real world. We can do it. We must do it to save our country from economic collapse.

Obama's Version of No Child Left Behind

President George W. Bush worked with Senator Kennedy to craft No Child Left Behind to improve our public schools. Bush got a little bit of accountability in the bill; though not much, and Kennedy got a lot more money for public schools to reach agreement on this deal. As soon as we get through HealthScare, President Obama plans to focus on Education and No Child Left Behind. The teacher unions did not like No Child Left Behind because after failing for years, there was the possibility that failing schools would be closed, however, it is doubtful that many closures ever occurred. As such, No Child Left Behind was just more pork barrel spending like all government programs. In essence, President Bush got rolled by Senator Kennedy just like his "Read My Lips" father who raised taxes and then was not reelected to a second term.

In any case, President Obama, the anointed one and a legend in his own mind, believes he was elected to solve all the nation's problems in 24 months or less. So shortly, Obama will advance another Big Government Socialist Scheme to deal with the nation's failing public schools. Though the United States already spends more on public education than any other nation in the world, no matter what the language of the bill says, it will boil down to Billions more for public schools, more federal control and deficit spending that is bankrupting our country.

In addition to the billions already provided to public schools each year, there was $3.5 Billion more in Obama's SwindleUS Plan. Obama included $900 million as an incentive for school districts to change failing schools. There was $50 million to deal with drop out prevention. All of these monies over the years have gone to hire more teachers, administrators, counselors etc. and at much higher salaries and pensions that are bankrupting our country. And, it's funny. There is a direct correlation between the rise of teacher unions in the last 30 years and the demise of our public schools. Go figure.

The fact of the matter is that teacher unions, as lead by the NEA, the National Education Association with their headquarters within blocks of the White House own the Democrat Socialist Party lock, stock and barrel. Generally, 50% or more of participants in Democrat Socialist National Conventions, every four years, to nominate a Presidential candidate are teachers. As I once heard old Senator Sam Irvin of Alabama once say during the Watergate Hearings, "Whose Bread You Eat, Whose Song You Sing." Teacher unions along with other public employee unions donate hundreds of millions of dollars each year to elect Democrat Socialists. Teacher unions are Obama's PEEP's. As such, does anyone seriously believe that there will be any meaningful reform in public education? What a joke! Any discussion of reform is just cover to provide even more money to support teacher union members. It is what it is.

If we want to see any improvement in public schools, teacher tenure must be ended so that poor teachers can be FIRED, using normal procedures in the private sector, which provide sufficient legal protections against unfair labor practices. Merit pay should be implemented to reward fine teachers; but it will not happen because unions oppose Merit pay as "unfair". School Vouchers should be provided to parents with kids in failing schools so that they can send their children to private schools just like most elected politicians, including the President and Mrs. Obama, in Washington DC. We have to end the modern day slavery that exists today as poor children are held captive in failing public schools to support the new Master, teacher unions.

Sadly none of these things will happen as long as Democrat Socialists control both the White House and the Congress. We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing common sense Conservatives who support limited government, free market capitalism, real reform in public schools, lower taxes and less regulation, real energy independence, a balanced budget, a strong national defense, term limits, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This is the winning platform. We must take back our country to get our nation back on track. We can do it. We will do it.

Obama's Poll Ratings Sink To All Time Low

President Obama's approval ratings in the polls have sunk to an all time low. Gallop has the President's approval rating at 46%. Obama's approval rating with Rasmussen is even lower at 44%. Is it any surprise? Obama supposedly ran as a Centrist; as declared by the left wing media to help get Obama elected; though in fact that was never the case. President Obama is a secular Socialist attempting to govern a center right country that is opposed to his Socialist agenda. The President is not just a traditional tax and spend liberal, which would be bad enough; Obama is purposefully acting to redistribute income in every way possible and to bankrupt the United States in order grow the government even bigger to control our lives. What other conclusion can there be?

Obama's SwindleUS Plans, HealthScare and CAP & Tax legislation have nothing to with economic recovery, health care or global warming. These monstrosities are really about higher taxes, redistribution of income, bigger government, support for unions and more control over our lives. Obama actually wants to control our standard of living by making all equally poor in the name of "Social Justice". Further, Obama is using Executive Orders to achieve what he can't get done in Congress, in order to implement his Socialist Schemes. President Obama is a Socialist ideologue with a nice smile; but he is fooling no one, which is the reason his poll ratings continue to fall.

And then, there are the people Obama has appointed as judges and to jobs in his Administration, which is full of left wing radicals and even Communists. Democrat Socialist Attorney General Eric Holder is going after CIA agents that have defended our country. Instead of trying Terrorists in Military Tribunals, Holder wants them tried in Federal courts, which will jeopardize the national security of the United States. Many in the Obama Administration are so far out of the mainstream of America that they cannot possibly act in accordance with the tenets in the US Constitution, or in the best interests of the people of the United States. All should be very concerned about the radicals surrounding the President; that's for sure. These people are a clear and present danger to our nation and our freedoms.

We need to take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives who support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and regulations, a balanced budget, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This is the winning platform. President Obama's poll ratings indicate that a tidal wave is coming that will sweep the Socialists out of office and the sooner the better. We need to get our country back on the right track in 2010 and 2012. We can do it. We must do it.

ACORN And The Obama Justice Department

Judicial Watch, a public interest group that investigates government corruption, accused ACORN, the community organizers associated with President Obama, of systematic voter registration fraud. Many cases alleging voter fraud were filed across the country against ACORN in the last election cycle, the one that elected Obama. Coincidentally, the Obama Justice Department headed by Democrat Socialist Attorney General Eric Holder, has decided not to act on these allegations. Go figure. Holder is also the guy that wants to try Terrorists in federal courts rather than in Military Tribunals.

President Obama has claimed that he had little to do with the workings of ACORN even though he was their attorney. What a joke and a lie! Over the years, millions of dollars have been funneled to ACORN by the Democrat Socialists and the federal government to "register voters" presumably in the inner city. ACORN has done that alright including registering the walking dead and many other non-existent people as determined by various watch dog groups and state Attorney Generals. ACORN is also the group that was caught in the scandal attempting to help an under cover pimp and hooker deal with housing for other young hookers coming in from outside the country.

Why on earth are federal tax payer dollars going to this corrupt organization? The answer is simple; PAYOLA. President Obama is keen on paying back his PEEPS for their support. Whether it relates to buying votes in Congress to get HealthScare enacted into law, or the billions in bail outs that went to support big unions like SEIU and the Auto Union, it should be no surprise that the Obama Administration is taking care of ACORN.

We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives who support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This is the winning platform for Republicans. We have to end the corruption in Washington DC and the influence of organizations like ACORN and SEIU that are destroying and bankrupting our country. We can do it. We must do it to save our country.

Unemployment Up In 30 States - SwindleUS Two

Even though official unemployment has fallen nationally from a little over 10% to 9.7%, the fact is that as of January, 2010 unemployment was actually up in 30 states. The highest unemployment is in Michigan at 14.3%, Nevada at 13%, Rhode Island at 12.7%, South Carolina at 12.6%, California at 12.5%, Florida at 11.9%, North Carolina at 11.1% and Georgia at 10.4%. This is happening as President Obama and the Democrat Socialists that control Congress promised us that if Obama's Trillion Dollar SwindleUS Plan, which includes interest on the debt that it has created, was enacted a year ago that unemployment would not exceed 8%. Obviously, Obama and the Democrat Socialists that control Congress were very wrong. In fact, the actual unemployment rate in the United States, when all are counted, is more than 18%.

So now, the Democrat Socialists that control Congress are working on enacting another "Jobs Bill" for $149 Billion, which again has Billions in bail out money for the states and more pork barrel spending in it. What is worse, there is $37 Billion Dollars in tax increases in the Senate version of this legislation. This SwindleUS Two Plan will not lead to jobs growth and instead will actually result in job losses because of the tax increases in the bill. It is just more deficit spending that is bankrupting our country.

In the mean time, even with all the bail outs including $17.2 Billion for GMAC, hundreds of Billions for GM, Chysler, AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which is yet to be paid back, the state of Nevada, my home state, is dead last in Per Capita Federal Funding. While on average states receive $1,469 per resident in federal monies in 2008, the state of Nevada has gotten back just $742 per resident even though we have the second highest unemployment rate and the highest foreclosure rate.

Democrat Socialist Senate Majority Leader, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada has done a great job for the states of Nebraska, Florida, Connecticut and Louisiana buying votes for HealthScare by providing these states with Billions of dollars in federal monies in the HealthScare Bill, but obviously Reid has been too busy working for other states to properly represent Nevada. That's OK. The election of 2010 is not too far away. The people of Nevada are going to pay Senator Harry Reid back by sending him into retirement. Reid may be the most hated man in Nevada. Reid certainly cannot appear in public, without it being a staged event, because he would be verbally accosted if not tarred and feathered. Remember, Nevada is the old West. We know how to deal with scoundrels.

Clearly, Obama/Reid/Pelosi management of the economy has been a disaster for the nation and more than 25 million people in the United States that are either unemployed, under employed, or who have just given up looking for a job. We have to take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives that support limited government, lower taxes and regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This is the winning platform that will sweep the Democrat Socialists out of office. We can do it. We must do it.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi - An Incoherent Socialist

Democrat Socialist Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco is simply incoherent. Speaking of Obama's HealthScare Plan, Pelosi said "we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy". Pelosi must be smoking medical marijuana. The problem is that the American people know very well what is in HealthScare and knowing what we know and the government's track record, WE DON'T WANT the government take over of the health care system in the United States. What ever issues we may have with insurance companies, ultimately we can fire them and choose to buy insurance from another company. As a company owner, I can say that we change our health insurance provider every few years to get better pricing. Once the government intrudes into our lives and health care, by law, other than revolution, how do we get rid of the government?

Obama's HealthScare Plan will result in $500 Billion in cuts to Medicare, $500 Billion in new taxes, higher premiums, rationing, death panels and in general a poorer quality of health care for all. 22 million Seniors will lose their Medicare Advantage HMO programs if HealthScare in enacted, which will result in higher out of pocket expenses for them one way or another. The fact is that it is impossible to insure 30 million uninsured without the rest of us paying the bill one way or another. And, why on earth would any rational elected official vote to create a new entitlement program when Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security are all heading toward insolvency now. This is just plain fiscal insanity. While Speaker Pelosi and others in Congress may not have read the 2,700 page HealthScare monstrosity that is before Congress, the American people are into the details because it impacts our very lives and well being.

And, the numbers are all smoke and mirrors. There will be no savings from HealthScare and in fact, this hostile government take over of the health care system will result in the bankruptcy of the United States. President Obama keeps painting insurance companies as villains. And, though there are problems with insurance companies that require regulation, the fact is that the average pre-tax profit of insurance companies is just 3 - 6%, which is lower than most other industries. Nearly all of insurance company income goes to support administration and benefits that are paid out to doctors, hospitals and drug companies. The reason those costs continue to rise is because government payments for Medicare and Medicaid are so low that medical providers must make up the difference by charging insurance companies higher fees for everyone else to cover their losses. Since President Obama has never run a business, or even worked in a business, he does not have a clue about profit and loss.

We need real health care reform instead of Obama's Socialist Scheme to deal with pre-existing conditions, caps on life time benefits, the ability to buy insurance across state lines, the ability to buy insurance through larger pools like Associations and limitations on medical malpractice. Let's start with these common sense elements, which will achieve cost saving results before we jump off a cliff and destroy the health care system of the United States.

We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives who support limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, a strong national defense, cost effective energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This is the winning platform supported by the majority of the American people. We have to end the deficit spending to prevent the economic collapse of the United States. We can do it. We must do it.

Obama's CAP & TAX - Not About Energy

President Obama's CAP & TAX legislation has nothing to do with energy independence. It is instead just another big government Socialist Scheme designed to raise the cost of carbon based energy, generating more taxes for the government and result in more government control over our lives. It really is that simple. Obama like Big Brother in Orwell's 1984 knows best what is right for each of us. Obama wants to control the cars we drive, the homes we live in, the food we eat and in general all aspects of our lives. Rather than provide additional tax incentives that would lead to energy independence, Obama wants to raise the cost of anything and everything we need to maintain a high standard of living to change the way we live. In essence, Obama wants us to lower our standard of living as part of his redistribution of income Socialist Scheme.

And, CAP & TAX will not result in energy independence because it is not in keeping with Economics 101. If CAP & TAX is enacted by the Democrat Socialists controlled Congress and signed into law by the President, millions of jobs will be lost and energy cost will go up for every American. CAP & TAX will be a disaster for the American economy. When ever government attempts to pick winners and losers in this case "green technologies" that are not economically feasible today and would require substantial subsidies at tax payer expense, rather than develop existing and proven sources of energy like nuclear, clean coal, natural gas and oil, it distorts the economy.

Ethanol is a case in point. Ethanol, which is added to gasoline, requires huge government subsidies because it is not cost effective as a fuel source. It actually takes more energy to produce Ethanol than it saves. Ethanol is made from corn products, which is great for American farmers; but very bad for people around the world. Corn is a primary feed stock for various domesticated animals that are a major food source around the world. As a result of subsidized Ethanol, the price of corn is higher than it should be and as such, the cost of meat and poultry are higher than would otherwise be the case. So not only are we paying to subsidize Ethanol, we are paying higher food prices because of it. This is tax money that could be used to create infrastructure jobs in the US, or pay down the debt. If food was less expensive, the money we save could be used to make other purchases, which would also create jobs. So, the law of unintended consequences is in play whenever the government artificially subsidizes any industry.

Global Warming, the supposed reason behind the need for CAP & TAX, is based on faulty science. There has in fact been Global Cooling since 1998. That aside, we all want clean air and water. However, we need a common sense 50 year plan that will result in real energy independence without destroying our economy. We need to develop current energy sources as a bridge to the future. Green technologies will replace carbon based fuels; but it will take time to make these newer technologies like wind, solar, bio fuels etc. economically feasible. Government should provide tax incentives to develop these new green technologies; but not impose additional taxes, or impediments to developing current energy sources. The fact is, we need both to occur.

It is time for the grown up's to take control of the federal government. In 2010 and 2012, we must elect common sense Conservatives that support limited government, lower taxes and regulations, a balanced budget, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This platform is the key to American greatness and our economic development. We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012. We can do it. We must do it.

Green Jobs - No So Fast

President Obama and the Democrat Socialists that control Congress are intent on subsidizing various green technologies that are not economically feasible today with tax payer dollars. And, to make green technology, like wind and solar energy, more viable, Obama has often said that the price of carbon based energy must go up, which is the whole basis of Obama's CAP & TAX scheme that has been passed by the House of Representatives. There is only one problem with this Scheme, it will result in significant job loss in the United States.

All we need do is look to Spain as our example. Several years ago Spain elected a Socialist government committed to green technology. Spain invested heavily in wind power and other renewable energy sources. Each job created in Spain cost about $750,000 and only 1 in 10 was permanent. If the US were to follow this model, it would cost $2.25 Trillion to create 3 million green jobs. However, Professor Gabriel Calzada Alvarez and colleagues at Spain's Universidad Rey Juan Carlos found that if America followed Spain's example, for every renewable energy job that is created, the US will lose, on average, at least 2.2 traditional jobs. And, further, if we look to Spain, we will see a country that is near insolvency with 20% unemployment; the highest in Europe.

That fact is that we need to develop current energy sources as part of a 50 year plan and bridge to future technologies. That means developing more nuclear plants, clean coal, natural gas and YES drilling for oil in the United States including Anwar in Alaska. All of this can and should be done with stringent environmental protections; but most important this plan represents a common sense approach to energy independence not environmental wacko pie in the sky that will destroy the American economy. And, these are real jobs in the energy sector that cannot be off shored.

Nevada could become the energy capital of the US. As a Nevada resident, I call for bringing Yucca Mountain, 100 miles from Las Vegas, on line, as a nuclear repository and reprocessing plant. Billions have been spent developing Yucca Mountain only to have Senator Harry Reid stop implementation. This at a time when Nevada has real unemployment of 18% or higher. Certainly, the people of Nevada now understand that we must diversify our economy and that we cannot be dependent on the tourist industry alone. Further, a second nuclear repository and processing plant should be built 100 miles from Reno. And, then multiple nuclear plants should be built around these Processing Plants to create a nuclear industry in Nevada. The state of Nevada can generate nuclear storage fees and taxes for years to come if this plan is adopted.

Finally, rather than build an $8 Billion high speed train and boondoggle between Anaheim, California and Las Vegas, we should instead build an east-west and a north-south sophisticated train line in Nevada, avoiding population centers, to support what could be our nuclear industry. At the same time, Nevada is blessed with sunshine and wind so that as solar and wind power become more economically feasible, there should be wind and solar farms as far as the eye can see in the desert between Las Vegas and Reno to replace these nuclear plants 50 years from now.

We need a common sense energy policy in the United States that is not likely to come from President Obama and the Democrat Socialists that control Congress. We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives that support limited government, a balance budget, term limits, a strong national defense, energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. We can do it. We must do it.

Pelosi Vowed to Drain the Swamp

When Democrat Socialist Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco took control of the House of Representatives, she vowed to "drain the swamp" presumably to end Republican corruption and shenanigans. What a joke! That was then and this is now. Many Democrat Socialists are involved in scandals so much so that they are now looking up from the swamp. New York Democrat Socialist Congressman Charlie Rangel had to give up his Chairmanship of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, in charge of the nation's tax policy because he failed to pay his taxes; go figure. New York Democrat Socialist Congressman Eric Massa just resigned because of charges of sexual harassment of a male staff member. Democrat Socialist Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana was indicted for taking bribes and hiding the money in the freezer of his refrigerator.

And then, there are the Democrat Socialist Governors Rod Blagojevich of Illinois who attempted to sell Obama's old Senate seat and David Paterson of New York, who apparently used his office for influence peddling. But let's not forget the worst offender Presidential candidate and former Democrat Socialist Senator John Edwards, who had an affair while his wife was dying of cancer and then tried to cover it up by having an employee admit to fathering the child of Edwards' mistress. It does not get much worse or sleazy than the Edwards story.

Of course over the years Republicans have had their scandals too; but again is was Pelosi who sanctimoniously said she was going to "drain the swamp". Well it is pretty clear that the Democrat Socialists are in the swamp up to their eyeballs. Let's also not forget about all the big union corruption that is inherent in the Democrat Socialist Party along with ACORN and all their shenanigans including voter fraud. It is not a pretty picture, that's for sure.

That's OK. The day of reckoning is coming along with a tidal wave that will sweep the Democrat Socialists from office in 2010 and 2012. We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing common sense Conservatives that support limited government, lower taxes and regulations, a balanced budget, term limits, energy independence, a strong national defense, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. We are going to drain the swamp. We can do it. We must do it.

36,000 Jobs Lost in February - " Really Good "

Democrat Socialist Senate Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid of Nevada said on the US Senate floor that the 36,000 jobs lost in February was "really good". There Reid goes again sticking both his feet in his mouth. Presumably, Reid was attempting to say that 36,000 jobs lost is better than a higher number of lost jobs; but obviously to the 26,000,000 million Americans out of work, working part time that want full time work, or that have just given up looking for a job altogether, there can be little comfort in Reid's insensitive remarks. This is particularly true since Senator Reid's home state, Nevada has the highest foreclosure rate and about highest unemployment rate in the country, officially at 13% and unofficially at 18% or more, when all are counted. It has not helped that President Obama has called out Las Vegas telling companies and tourists not to "blow their money" in Vegas even though it is one of the most cost effective convention and vacation destinations in the country. Mr. President, people who work in hotels and casinos need jobs too.

This is probably the reason that Harry Reid's potential Republican opponents Sue Lowden, the front runner and Danny Tarkanian, are both beating Reid by more than 10 percentage points in the polls. It is becoming increasing clear that the people of Nevada intend to send Senator Harry Reid into retirement, next November, back to his home in Searchlight, Nevada. And, it won't be too soon. Though most likely Reid will become a paid lobbyist, when he loses his reelection bid in order to continue living the cushy life in Washington, rather than move back to the desert in Search Light.

Senator Harry Reid has been President Obama's water boy in the US Senate attempting to ram through all of Obama's big government Socialist Schemes, which are a road to national bankruptcy. The Congressional Budget Office just estimated that if Obama is allowed to pursue his reckless spending Socialist Schemes that the budget deficit over the next ten years will be $9.8 Trillion, which is $1.2 Trillion more than projected by the Obama Administration. And, if government accounting is true to form, we can assume that the numbers will actually be double, or maybe even triple the Congressional Budget Office estimate. This will lead to higher interest rates and inflation, the collapse of the dollar and making the United States a banana republic. We just can't let this happen.

Obviously, Obama's SwindleUS Plan, which Senator Harry Reid rushed through the Senate without many Senators even reading the bill has done little to impact the country's unemployment rate. In fact, unemployment, which Obama, Reid and Pelosi promised would not go higher than 8% if the SwindleUS Plan was enacted grew to more than 10%. While it was important to stabilize the banking system, which actually occurred under President Bush, all the other Obama, Reid, Pelosi bail-outs have been a complete waste of money and represent nothing more than pay offs to political supporters like the auto and the public employee unions at the expense of the American taxpayer. The end result is pretty obvious. Government employees now make significantly more money that private sector employees with pensions that are bankrupting all levels of government.

Democrat Socialist Senator Harry Reid is completely out of touch with the American people along with President Obama and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from San Francisco. These Democrat Socialists are now attempting to push ram through Obama's HealthScare Plan, which will lead to the government take over of health care in the United States. If they succeed, we will see rationing, higher premiums, death panels, $500 Billion in new taxes and $500 Billion in Medicare cuts. 22 million Senior Citizens will lose their Medicare Advantage HMO programs if HealthScare is enacted, which will result in higher out of pocket cost for them. There is no free ride. In order to insure 30 million uninsured Americans, every one else will pay more. It is just common sense, which is the reason that 59% of Americans oppose Obama's HealthScare Plan.

We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing common sense Conservatives who support limited government, term limits, a balanced budget, lower taxes and less regulation, energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. These concepts are the key to economic prosperity not Socialism. Democrat Socialists like Senator Harry Reid prove every day that they are a clear and present danger to the people of the United States. We must take back our country. We can do it. We must do it.
