Let’s face it: We’ve been betrayed again. Grassroots conservatives — and the globalist/Marxist/fascist Democratic Party — have come to realize that Establishment Republicans such as Sun Tan Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and a host of other senators and congressmen are totally incapable of standing firm on principle. They think they must “compromise” on everything — that to stand on principle is to be seen as partisan, and Heaven forbid that should happen. What would Democrats and independents think?
The same week that these frauds “compromised” our budget cuts down to $38 billion, the government went another $52 billion into debt. According to the Heritage Foundation, the government’s own figures also revealed that in 2010, it took in $2.15 trillion in revenue, but spent $3.69 trillion. This kind of behavior is not aimed at anything but wrecking our economy, as outlined by Obama’s heroes — Saul Alinsky, Richard Andrew Cloward, and Frances Fox Piven — in order to impose a form of global Marxism/fascism.
This kind of debt is not sustainable, not even in the short run, and they all know it.
So, what do we do? We can actively support the small-but-dedicated group of real conservatives in Congress. Rep. Paul Ryan has proposed a budget that is soun, and can undo much of the damage that Reid, Pelosi, Obama, and their Republican running dogs have caused. We must not let this be “compromised” away. The Tea Parties are a powerful force, and we must not let the enemy marginalize and demoralize us. We need to do whatever it takes to keep this budget proposal alive and intact.
Another thing we can do is support the movement to repeal the 17th Amendment. The 17th Amendment took away the power of state legislatures to elect their senators, who originally were to be the states’ representatives at the federal level, while congressmen were to represent the people. It was passed in 1913, along with the creation of the Federal Reserve. Senators can now be elected by special interests like unions, environmentalists, and multi-national corporations who pump Big Money into their campaigns, creating loyalty not to the states, but to the special interests. We see this in action every day, with the Senate ignoring the wishes of the people – as it is with the budget, amnesty, Obamacare, the refusal to allow oil drilling, and one of the latest outrages: a bill to enable even more “czars.” Introduced by RINO Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-TN, the bill is an abdication of the Senate’s responsibility and another step toward dictatorship. Repeal of the 17th Amendment would be a huge step in returning power to the states, and thus, the people. It is indeed, time to take out the trash.
The vulnerable but growing core of real conservatives in Congress are definitely worthy of our support, time, and money: Allen West, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Jim DeMint, Marco Rubio, and Mark Lee among others.
So, here we are, facing a nation-crushing debt, government corruption at the highest levels,
and a world that seems to be falling apart. This must be a little bit what it was like for folks back in the 1930s. They faced hard times and tough decisions. They had to commit to making real sacrifices in order to preserve America, liberty, and our Constitution and its Bill of God-given Rights, but they did it and they eventually prevailed.
So can we.
