Government Counseling

Nancy Pelosi, third in line for the Presidency, talking with legal and illegal immigrants in San Francisco urged an end to immigration raids. I suppose we shouldn’t enforce immigration laws at all? Then I suppose we should let them vote even though not citizens? Our Constitution simply doesn’t mean anything to the Far Left element in our Congress and our society.

Doom and gloom, or optimism? Where is the truth as far as The One is concerned. However the real problem is the last sentence quoted in his remarks yesterday, “structural changes.” He means a complete restructuring of our society if you listen closely. Maybe the biggest changes ever.

Doom & Gloom or….?


Liberty or the Loss of It

The following was in the PatriotPost today. Very appropriate at the present time.

“Most of us imagine the transformation of a free society to a tyrannical state in Hollywood terms, as a melodramatic act of violence like a military coup or an armed insurrection. [Alexis de] Tocqueville knows better. He foresees a slow death of freedom. The power of the centralized government will gradually expand, meddling in every area of our lives until, like a lobster in a slowly heated pot, we are cooked without ever realizing what has happened. The ultimate horror of Tocqueville’s vision is that we will welcome it, and even convince ourselves that we control it. There is no single dramatic event in Tocqueville’s scenario, no storming of the Bastille, no assault on the Winter Palace, no March on Rome, no Kristallnacht. We are to be immobilized, Gulliver-like, by myriad rules and regulations, annoying little restrictions that become more and more binding until they eventually paralyze us. … Permitting the central government to assume our proper responsibilities is not merely a transfer of power from us to them; it does grave damage to our spirit. It subverts our national character. In Tocqueville’s elegant construction, it ‘renders the exercise of the free agency of man less useful and less frequent; it circumscribes the will within a narrower range and gradually robs a man of all the uses of himself.’ Once we go over the edge toward the pursuit of material wealth, our energies uncoil, and we become meek, quiescent and flaccid in the defense of freedom.” –author Michael Ledeen

Listening to Sirius Radio today, country philosopher Tom T. Hall reminded me what’s important:

Faster horses

Younger Women

Older Whiskey

More Money

That about says it all.

This clip from Fox News was not allowed on U.S. Youtube. Remember it was Bill Clinton who released the two mortgage giants to make loans to people who could not afford the homes they were buying.


Distribution of Wealth

A very pertinent quote

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

~~ The late Dr. Adrian Rogers ~~
