Quote of the Day

"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, 1931 - 2005 ~~~~~

Mad Mom,
Please realize that the "Bill" is going to be passed by the Senate. The fix is in and it will slide into law under ALL of our noses as we sit on our butts doing nothing but yapping to each other.
I am worried sick over this.
Folks, don't you realize that this package will not stimulate anything but socialism and extreme inflation? We are not doing enough to STOP this criminal and shameful legislation. We will only have ourselves to blame when it becomes law.

Besides calling our Senators, do you have any suggestions for stopping the train wreck? I am sick about it as well, and feel that the will of the people is not being adequately represented. Isn't that a form of tyranny?

Mad Mom,
Yes, every day.....every spare minute that each of us have during the day/evening we should call, email our friends, our legislators our co-workers, write letters to editors, engage others as best we can in this discussion and get them to do the same. Facilitate that action by following up with them and keeping them involved and excited so that they carry the fight. Send them as much detail as possible to keep them aware. Get them to know who their legislators are and get their legislators to know them real well.

Sadly, Sen. Lindsey Graham's (am almost blushing to admit he's one of my Senators) mailbox is full...going to use the on-line form, instead.

I took the day off and have been faxing my petition to every Senator and Congressman I can find a fax number for and making a list of the folks that don't have fax numbers. Emails are restricted to constituents.

Mad Mom said...

Awesome, Sherry! Thanks for your efforts!

Had our government operated strictly within it's originally created Constitutional boundaries, this financial system collapse & 9/11 would not have happened.

We ought to have the Liberty, Freedom & Right to decide how, what & when we want to spend or invest our own labored money, because the money is only a representation of the amount of time that we surrender to acquire the basic levels of today's standard of living and quality of life.

How it is done.

Dumb down the populace by diluting education.
Promise each socioeconomic group lots of stuff, money, support.
Promise self interest groups lots of support.
Keep some of the people poor and use the class rivalry later.
Create an economic meltdown by flooding the country with worthless paper.
Move in with government "help" and a promise to rectify the financial crisis.
Payoff your supporters with graft.
Weaken the military if possible.
Restrict ownership of guns and then take the weapons and ammo away. (see UK gun control)
Get control of the media.
Silence your opponents.
Slowly dissolve the rights of the citizens.
Slowly take over the banks.
Encourage, or reward rampant illegal immigration.
Brainwash the gullible.
Organize the impressionable youth at a grassroots level.
Make some groups totally dependent on the government handout.
Pretend the violent religious sects are benign.
Allow the violent religious sects to recruit in prisons.
Divide the country and feed on that socioeconomic rivalry.
Increase the country’s dependence on foreign products.
Create a real economic crisis.
Move in with more "help".
Create a civil security force, train it, deploy it and try to get it inside military installations.
Give the security force power over the populace. (see HR45)
Wait for, or initiate, a social crisis, or allow an attack from the outside and then move on it.
And there you have it folks, the formula for the transition to socialism.

That last post is a checklist to follow how Obama is doing. Print it out and put to columns next to that list. Column A: Did he promise this?
Column B: Is he doing this?

You can track his agenda quite easily doing that.
