This was from June of 2011. The questions are still relevant–they’ll always be relevant.
QOTD: “The [Sixth Circuit] majority [decision upholding Obamacare’s individual mandate] is ludicrous. It stated, “Virtually everyone will need health care services at some point, including, in the aggregate, those without health insurance.”
“All of us will need shelter. Should government control the residential housing market and compel individuals to buy approved housing?
All of us will need clothes. Should government control the clothing market and compel individuals to buy approved clothing?
All of us will need food. Should government control the food supply and compel individuals to buy only approved foods?
All of us will need transportation. Should government control all modes of transportation and compel individuals to buy only approved transportation services?
And, now that the Constitution has been shredded, where does this control over the individual end?
I’ll tell you where it ends: with the destruction of this Republic, by a fifth column called the cadaver of the Democrat Party, a once-proud and patriotic group that has been utterly subsumed by the maggots known as Marxists.” Doug Ross

This is ONLY about the Federal Government getting more power; if you believe that a great lumbering bureaucracy cares about you, you’re delusional enough to vote for Obama. You’re delusional enough to believe that more spending will result in a lower debt, crazy enough to believe that if we are just nice to the Islamists that they will make nice with us. And probably in so much denial that you believe that what happens on American Idol/The Voice/Jersey Shores–whatever– is important If you believe any of that, Please,please do not vote! You’re part of the problem. (Hey, if the Panthers can physically intimidate voters and get away with it, I can beg you not to vote)
Look at Europe, do you really want to go down that path? that way leads to Greece, Spain, etc. Nothing but shells of their former glory, with a large dependent class and unsustainable debt. The CBO estimates that by 2035 Americas debt service will take 200% of GDP to pay–Impossible! My prediction is we won’t last until 2035 if we don’t change our present direction NOW! and continue in 2012 with a sweeping out of the spenders (either party),drastically reduce spending (back to FY 2001 levels), lower taxes (or eliminate them and go with the Fair Tax) otherwise, say goodbye to our country as we know it. That would mean our children and grandchildren would be stuck with something that is hard for me to envision; a world with no where to go to escape the stifling,choking stench of Socialism/Marxism/oppressiveness. No place to escape to, to be able to enjoy individual liberty, freedom.
We have to get back to the Constitution. To the founding ideas. We have to desire freedom and liberty more than convenience and pleasure.
Pray for our country.
