The phone rang.  For many, it is an abominable burden to arouse oneself from slumber to answer a pesky communication device.  The phone rang again.  Pried from the natural regenerative fruits of sleep, many of us would seize the device with utter contempt and answer groggily with disdain or with braced expectation of the worst. It is universal in understanding that none would bother another in the midst of slumber unless the matter was an urgent one.  The phone rang for the last time.  Life matters. 

On September 11th, 2012, there was no answer at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC.   It is this silence that disturbs American voters.  Some political pundits laud the brilliance of President Barack Obama in marshaling his administration’s managed response to attacks on the United States consulate at Benghazi, Libya.  Yet, this glory is a sheer veil.  Four Americans died on American soil in a foreign land on September 11th:  U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other members of his diplomatic mission, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith and U.S. embassy security personnel Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.  When they called at 3 AM, neither Obama nor Secretary of State Hillary Clinton answered.  Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said the military didn't send forces in during the attack on the U.S. Consulate because there was "no real-time information" to act on. He advised that "You don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on" and military brass "felt we could not put forces at risk in that situation."  Three times, an American called upon the powers that be to rescue them from unenviable fate.  Thrice, the response was silence. 

"The election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened," Obama said in an interview with KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver on October 26, 2012 (http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/10/obama-election-has-nothi...).  The truth is that it does.  It is not optimal to have Benghazi-Gate alive and burning ever-increasingly on the eve of America’s most important election in a century.  Servant Leadership is absent the Obama Administration.  Servant Leaders possess awareness and foresight.  Obama appears blind to the impact that his absence of leadership--the optic of the trip to Las Vegas rather than remaining at the White House—has had on this election and his campaign.  According to Pew Research, an accurate 2008 Election assessor, polled Obama with an 8 point ahead of Governor Mitt Romney (51 to 43, Among Likely Voters).  Today, Romney polls ahead (49 to 45, Among Likely Voters).  What happened?  Benghazi-Gate happened.  Even more oblivious that the jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula seems more scapegoat than justice.  Death and destruction exchanged for a protest video?  Obama failed in foresight.  He lacked the ability to understand current reality and identify future consequences.  Having served on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he seemed dim of caution in preparing for potential enemy attacks while America observed September 11 Memorials.  The Viet Cong Tet Offensive or the Greek’s Trojan Horse Attack never came to the community organizer’s sans Commander-in-Chief’s mind.  Worse, The State Department did not spend $2 billion to prepare US embassies and consulates around the world for radical assaults.  Military presence was not increased.  As servant leaders, Obama, Clinton and the Administration failed.  Unlike his failings in green energy pursuits like Solyndra and A123 Systems, this failure actually cost American lives.

Americans are looking for a leader that is willing to take charge rather than lead from behind, do what is right rather than politically expedient and oversee rather than avoiding the confrontations impending fiscal, military and diplomatic crises on the horizon.  Benghazi-Gate reveals both weaknesses in character and in execution.  "I find it astounding," former US Presidential Candidate, Senator John McCain told Fox News. "I find it a lack of leadership, a lack of understanding, either before or during this attack."  Leadership is not merely a position one pursues for vainglory, economic compensation and privileges and powers.  Blame Congress!  Blame Hillary!  No.  The buck stops at Obama.  Mitford M. Mathews, A Dictionary of Americanisms on Historical Principles, writes, “The saying ‘the buck stops here’ derives from the slang expression ‘pass the buck’ which means passing the responsibility on to someone else.  Democrat President Harry Truman referred to this concept very specifically in asserting that, "The President--whoever he is--has to decide.  He can't pass the buck to anybody. No one else can do the deciding for him. That's his job.”  The Campaign offers the President a stage upon which he can either command accountability for himself and others or trifle with assigning blame upon imaginary provocateurs and withholding justice even from his own Cabinet.

Americans on November 6th, 2012, will select an individual to serve this Nation as President.  The role is inclusive of the duties ascribed a Chief Foreign Policy Specialist, a Chief Executive Office and a Commander-In-Chief.  The role requires a man or woman that is empathetic to the cries of the people-- especially those that volunteer to be placed in harm’s way--and seeks the best solutions for the overall good of the Nation’s people.  Americans for years have elected politicians that have not seen a moral value that they cannot sell for a campaign donation or committee seat.  Americans are looking for men and women of character to righteously execute the affairs of “We the People” on a daily basis.  Leaders lead in crises from positions of strength and not weakness.  If not Obama, Romney will provide what the Nation needs.

   Network Media broadcasters, in the waning days of Election 2012, make it their business to remind Americans of the term “October Surprise”. A fixture of political talk since President Lyndon Baines Johnson's Vietnam assist to Vice President Hubert Humphrey in 1968. October Surprise is a news event that has the power to influence the voters' reaction to a candidate. Most expected, in this Presidential Election, that the Media would report some event that would garner significant advantage to President Barack Hussein Obama's Campaign. However, the real news is that the October Surprise occurred in September, has revealed Obama's foreign policy failures and brought his campaign to a virtual death knelt. What the Obama Administration knew and when they knew it will reveal with certainty whether they are lying about the circumstances that impacted the deaths of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans or if they incompetently left the US Consulate at Benghazi, Libya and other American embassies and consulates around the world vulnerable to attack. “We the People” are called upon every four years to invest our Trust in one amongst us that will focus on Truth rather than semantics and Leadership rather than rhetoric.

   The greatest revelation about the “Surprise” is that Americans seek a World Leader that takes responsibility and executes a strategy to protect our citizens. Four weeks passed after the September 11, 2012 terrorist event and neither the White House nor State Department had taken full responsibility for the mishaps in preparation, security and intelligence. On his last day on Earth, Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens requested additional security for fear of losing his life. The terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya was troubling in itself. That Congress budgeted more than $2 billion for security enhancements to embassy and consulate around the world and yet, rejected the US Ambassador's request is quite unsettling. Stevens did not mention a YouTube video denigrating the Prophet Muhammad. The video is the Administration's defense throughout Benghazi-Gate. The Wall Street Journal's James Rosen writes:
“In Tuesday night's debate with Mitt Romney, President Obama claimed to have "told" the American people that Benghazi was a terror attack the very next day, Sept. 12, when speaking from the Rose Garden. The assertion was untrue, despite moderator Candy Crowley's ruling to the contrary. The president had only spoken generally of terror attacks, and Benghazi would have been understood to fall under that umbrella only if it had been acknowledged as a terror attack. “ [http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444868204578062420490...]
The terrorist attack was curiously planned for September 11. 2012. A time when Americans, and even Israel, remember the onset of our War on Terror with the destruction of New York's famed Twin Towers by militant terrorists on September 11, 2001. Yet, Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seemed aloof and unable to give a reasoned response for the episode that resulted in the death of four Americans and the first US Ambassador killed in an attack since President Jimmy Carter's administration in 1979.

   Why would a sitting President not accept responsibility immediately and employ a strategy to retaliate against the militants? Why would the State Department not provide a war zone Ambassador adequate protection? Why did Obama, Clinton and Biden not know that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had determined that this was a terrorist act within 24 hours of the event? Obama and his Administration seem so weak in their Benghazi-Gate defense that voters believe either they are lying in order to increase their chances for political victory or are incompetent in executing foreign policy. Once blaming Governor Mitt Romney for politicizing the Benghazi attacks, the Obama Administration finds itself, according to the Associated Press, under political pressure to respond militarily in Libya for the attacks. This leaves the Administration appearing to be more reactive than proactive in executing military and foreign policy options. When one is proactive on the world stage, he appears to be a Master of topics. When one is reactive, he appears to be a foil-able Student. After four years, the American voter seeks a Master rather than student. Voters depend on the integrity, ability and strength of the one that will receive their trust. Voters also depend on truth rather than talking points for matters of security. The problem is that Democrat leaders have not reverenced the surety of the voter. James Carville once advised:
“The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn't have a clue than there were Republicans.
Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you're smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That's why I'm a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to."

Unfortunately, the greatest misgiving that the Obama Administration may not want to acknowledge but is quite profound is that the 2012 Presidential Election Voter is not as dumb and lazy as many expected them to be and certainly want to know what is true rather than acceptable platform talking points. We the People want Trust and Truth not reckless abandon for political gain.  Americans are determining that they can not find it in Obama, Biden or Clinton.

Affirmative Action Places Blacks In the Cross-Hairs of Future Federal Austerity

One of America’s Most Racist, Propaganda Pieces of the Liberal Democrat Agenda is at odds with one of the most socialist, local governments in the Nation–the District of Columbia Government.  The Washington Informer is protesting the DC Government over the awarding of the more than $30,000 unclaimed property advertising contract to the Washington Times in lieu of the much more attractive Washington Informer.  Which is the more awing: That the Obama economy is so piss-poor that the media powerhouse, the Washington Informer, is left in a bitter scramble for $30,000 of revenue from a government entity or that the Washington Informer reports very little about the economy to its circulation and finds it easier to Blame Bush or the Republicans when it does so?  So why was the Times chosen over the Informer.  According to the largest District based African-American newspaper, its rejection was solely on the grounds that it is not a “newspaper of general circulation”.  But wait, we are not a Asian establishment.  We are Black.  The Mayor is Black.  The City Is Black.  Doesn’t America owe the Informer?  Why even Nick McCoy, a political and gay rights activist says that the Informer speaks for the “whole community”.  How did the socialist government respond to the paper of the least, the last and the lost:

“The Washington Informer was found non-responsive based on the fact that the Washington Informer serves a specific ethnic group.  It is our view that targeting a specific ethnic group does not meet the requirement of a newspaper of general circulation.”

The Informer contends that such a ruling may have violated District and federal civil rights laws.  They are willing to fight it out in court where costs may treble the actual costs of contract.  Why did the Times get the contract?  According to the Informer’s attorney, it’s all racial.

“None can argue that anecdotally the likely subscribers to the Washington Times are conservative and Republican – the anecdotal opposite of the population of the District of Columbia, which is overwhelmingly Democratic and progressive,” he said.
“If The Washington Informer can be disqualified because it appeals to a specific ethnic group, a similar disqualification can be leveled against the Washington Times, which some might subjectively argue appeals only to a certain ideological group.

So until a Judge rules, the Informer must fill space with more progressive, Democrat propaganda that does not bring in revenue and the Times is the new black and operating in the black.  Yes, Conservative Republicans, the pendulum is really beginning to swing your way!

It is with trepidation that I proceed in this commentary.  I fear not of my own condition, expectation or state of being.  However, I do fear that many that had placed their faith in nothing less thanaffirmative action and its righteousness will soon find it a device of little comfort.  Booker T. Washington, in his 1895 Atlanta Exposition Address, cautioned, “The wisest among my race understand that the agitation of questions of social equality is the extremist folly, and that progress in the enjoyment of all the privileges that will come to us must be the result of severe and constant struggle rather than artificial forcing.”  Abounding in many promises and languishing in few satisfying results outside of government, affirmative action often has more fictional victims than actual and thus, creates an atmosphere of accepted mediocrity rather than the pursuit of meritocratic excellence.  Many races, deemed minority, have fallen into the tangled web of artificial devices that nobly extend the hope of evening the score for past atrocities.  All done as if an additional 10 points on the civil service exam or executing a poli-economic plan that distributes another’s wealth to one that lacks capital, means of production or access to the labor market would salve or even the score for 400 years of brutish treatment to the many institutionalized in slavery.


Our forefathers advised us not to advance into a fertile future with as much as a bond of insufferable allegiance or chained to the security of folly and fable.  Frederick Douglas, in a speech entitled “What The Black Man Wants” (April 1865) exclaimed, “Everybody has asked the question, and they learned to ask it early of the abolitionists, ‘What shall we do with the Negro?’ I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are wormeaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! I am not for tying or fastening them on the tree in any way, except by nature’s plan, and if they will not stay there, let them fall.”  Our Founding Fathers encouraged us to use the principles of conservatism, as best understood of the times, and our Faith in God to challenge the human race’s cultural deficiencies and excel in every pursuit by our limitless spiritual and natural endowment.  Not to soar as eagles meant that we vacillated, becoming the product of the slavery system that we exited only through blood, sweat and tears.  Albeit, the generous successes of Affirmative Action have placed Blacks in the cross hairs of any severe austerity plan, by choice or by force, implemented by Congress in 2013.

“Thanks for the history lesson, Paley!  However, what does affirmative action have to do with the Obama economy.  You right wing extremists so hate Obama and it’s all racial!”  Give me a few mere lines more and my broad strokes will appear as clarion as a mezzo-soprano at the Kennedy Center.  For the fourth consecutive year, the Obama Administration and Congress have presided over a government that has produced $1 trillion plus deficits.  According to Eric Pianin, The Fiscal Times, “For fiscal year 2012  that will end on  Sept. 30, the deficit is now projected to be $1.211 trillion, or $116 billion lower than the $1.327 trillion deficit projected in February, according to the Office of Management and Budget’s Fiscal Year 2013 Midsession Budget Review. That compares with deficits ranging from a high of $1.4 trillion in fiscal 2009, to $1.29 trillion in both fiscal 2010 and 2011.”  With Europe in a recession, China’s buying power weakening as its currency losses value and very few signs of resuscitation of the American economy, there will be more calls upon the United States to consider austerity plans.  In economics, austerity refers to a policy of deficit-cutting by lowering spending often via a reduction in the amount of benefits and public services provided.  Without an austerity plan, the United States, fast approaching a fiscal cliff, will suffer severe effects from these princely budget deficits.  The costs of borrowing money to pay the federal bills will increase and take up a more sizable portion of the budget.  Hence, pay your interest debt and cut where needed.  To raise the monies to pay the bills, either tax revenue must increase or more bonds must be sold or both.  Increase taxes during a jobless recovery and you could capsize the private economy and unemployment would explode.  Sell more treasury bonds and the national debt increases.  Obama “inherited” a national debt of $9 trillion from Bush.  He will inherit a $16 trillion national debt from himself.  For the chic Keynesian, government must take credit for any recovery so stimulus must be afforded.  Artificially suppressing interest rates costs money.  The Treasury must print it and the Federal Reserve must buy it.  Eventually, Keynesian learn from the Hayek models that interest rates are like balloons.  They can not be held down naturally for long.  When rates rise, your buying power lessens and inflation takes off.  In a nutshell, without an austerity in the next Congress, we are screwed as a Nation.

So what does affirmative action have to do with all that economic gobbledygook?  President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order 10925 on March 6, 1961.  In so doing, required that government employers “not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, creed, color, or national origin” and “take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, creed, color, or national origin”.  On September 2, 1965, President Lyndon Johnson signed Executive Order 11246  affirming Federal Government’s commitment “to promote the full realization of equal employment opportunity through a positive, continuing program in each executive department and agency”.  From that time onward, African-Americans began to encourage their kinfolk to “go to school and get a good government job”.  You did not want to curse your kids and leave them out in that evil private industry world.  The Federal government’s multicultural campaign for diversity resulted in a 17% Black of the Federal Civilian population.  As of 2010, the overall US Black population was 12%.  Brendan Greeley, in “The Deficit: A Stark Choice for 2012? Not Really”, writes, “Obama claims to care about the deficit. In his budget this year, he takes credit for offering a comprehensive spending-reduction deal to congressional Republicans in 2011. And yet according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the White House’s proposed 2013 budget increases debt as a proportion of gross domestic product until 2018, when it flattens out at around 76 percent.”  An austerity plan will be executed in the next Congress.  No doubt!  No diggity!  When it does, it will disproportionately impact the Black workforce.  This impact will not be noticed greatly in rural regions.  However, it will impact urban and suburban governments and cities.  Thanks to  4 years of “danger zone” budgeting by continuing resolution, the next recession will more disproportionately impact Blacks than any other group because of our lower rates of participation in private industry and small business development.

Walter E. Williams, author of “The Racism of Diversity” (Townhall.com, July 22, 2009),  wrote, “This is one of the unappreciated aspects of preferential treatment. It runs the risk of creating racist attitudes, and possibly feelings of racial superiority, among whites and others who were formerly racially neutral.”  In the scale of economics, there is a Black female publisher in Washington, DC that believes she is entitled by race to receive the fruit of the taxpayers’ revenue.  She has been exposed to the noble intentions of affirmative action.  It was supposed to serve as reparations and make all things right amongst those that suffered or were victimized.  Today, she is a victim.  The White Republicans–there could not possibly be any Black, Latino, Asian, etc Republicans or Conservatives that read the Times–have stolen her 40 aces and a mule and she wants it back.  Maybe if she encouraged her general readership to spend less time seeking the entitlements of public benefits and more time seeking to invest in private opportunities then, her general readership would grow to a size worthy of government intervention.  Whether Republican or Democrat, it would be good to advise the limited readership that they need to batten down the hatches thanks to the President’s handling of the economy.  There is rough weather ahead and Blacks will suffer the greatest losses.

Bloomberg, Emanuel, Gray and Menino: The Dirty Work of Installing Socialism Into the Minds of Urban Amerikka

Someone has got to do it!  It is dirty and seems a misguided exploration of territory and even uncommon waste of resources.  Christians will yell at you for forsaking the First Two Commandments: “Love the Lord Your God With All of Your Heart,  With All of Your Soul, With All of Your Strength and With All of Your Mind and Your Neighbor as Yourself (Luke 10:27).”  Teetotalers of the First Amendment shall condemn you for your onerous disdain of the Founding Fathers and their observance of free speech among individual and corporate citizen alike.  Private Property Guardians will assault you as cynics seeking to undo the principles of intellectual and private property.   Liberals will assail your integrity for not moving faster with the newly inferred powers of public officials at every level by the radical Supreme Court which, for the sake of expediency, deemed socialism the preferred style of governance over the land by the measure of restraint in taxation of the corporate and individual citizen.  Listen, it took millenniums for mankind to reach the seventh heaven.  Know that installing Utopian state sponsored tyranny upon the universe may take another generation.

Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.

Most of Amerikka has been up in arms about Dan Cathy’s comments on traditional marriage.  Before July 2012, most had never even heard of Mr. Cathy.  Turning from a music career as a trumpeter, Mr. Cathy joined Chick-Fil-A in 1970 and, since 2001, serves as President and Chief Operating Officer.  Chick-fil-A has steadily grown to become the second largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the United States, with over 1,615 locations in 39 states and Washington, D.C. [Note to Mayor Vincent Gray: You should pay as much attention to the companies residing in your city as you pay to those that handle your campaign finances.  By the way, as a Roman Catholic, I would think that you would know that there is a Chick-Fil-A at Catholic University.  Take it up with the Priest at the next confessional.].  In 2011, annual sales were over $4.1 billion. Chick-fil-A is still privately held and family owned.  In 2011, Consumer Reports ranked Chick-Fil-A the Nation’s Top Chicken Chain.  J. D. Powers, in 2010, ranked it top restaurant brand in customer satisfaction.  In 2008, Men’s Health recognized Chick-Fil-A as America’s Healthiest Restaurant Chain for Children.

Truth is, my entire life has been spent around Chick-fil-A and watching my dad, S. Truett Cathy, build an organization that is as much about people as it is chicken.

Why would such a successful man and excellent organization have difficulty in connecting with the Mayors of the Most Powerful Cities in America: Washington, DC.; Chicago, Illinois; Boston, Massachusetts; and San Francisco, California?  While many of you will immediately affix yourself to the concept of God, I would probably confound you by saying that it is the least of the concerns of the Left.  God has been erased from most conversations in Urban American politics.  The ever extensive reach of Black Liberation Theology and its Marxist-Leninist Tenets has all but reduced the number of Urban American, Biblical World View ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a mere remnant easily hidden in the caves of orthodox seminaries or buried in pulpit depth charts.  God has such little place in the state sponsored societies of Urban America.  It is easier to blame “some” in the Universal Church for the  deficiencies of racial prejudice and fiscal greed as the reasons that the social justice gospel outside of the predominant favor of government influence has failed.  Easily asked, yet drawing a breath of many in the reluctance to answer, “How many of your churches have more fliers and advertisements from your federal, state, county and local government about “social justice programs” that provide medical, housing and clothing to the “poor” than ministerial notices of support to the “poor”?  The Urban American Church has placed the responsibility of caring for the sick, the homeless and the poor on the “taxpayer” because it is only “fair” that we all give “equally” to the needs of the poor.  The fabric of a Biblical World View in Urban America has been eroding since 1964.  Thus, God is not the issue.

The real issue is the common standard of achievement.  What are you talking about, Ken?  Can you not see that the Progressives are trying to take away your rights and liberties?  Yes, I can.  Can you not see that they are attacking a man simply because he offered his personal opinion?  Yes, I can.  Conservatives, I must provoke you so that you realize where  the real battlefield is.  The Progressives left the soft, safe conservative confines of the United States Constitution on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 with the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States.  The Progressives’ interest was never the economy, energy, foreign policy or any other Constitutional requirement of Congress.  It was about obtaining the last ring of conquest: socialized medicine.  In the moment that President Barack Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), Progressives had ended their War on Natural Rights.  Every American, by choice and force, had surrendered their political rights, guaranteed by Sovereign God, installed by our Founding Father’s in the US Constitution, for economic rights, guaranteed by a state sponsored assembly of mankind, installed by the radical interpretation of the US Constitution by electorates, Congress, President and Supreme Court.  Unless the Second Bill of Rights is repealed then, the US Constitution established by the Founding Father’s is virtually dead.  In its absence, a new Constitution is being written but only, for this moment, on the hearts of men.

Common Standard of Achievement is the new spike in the Progressive Railroad to Tyranny.  What is Common Standard of Achievement.  Let’s critically think this through.  Common is defined as “pertaining or belonging equally to an entire community, nation, or culture; public”.  There is no private.  Success is a public investment and public outcome.  Wealth created from innovation is not private property but belongs to state.  In the very first paragraph of the “Virginia Declaration of Rights” written by George Mason in 1776, it proclaims:

“That all men are by nature equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.”

Thomas Jefferson would later use this reasoning for the founding principle of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in the Declaration of Independence.  No private property or private success then, no life or liberty.

Standard is defined as “something considered by an authority or by general consent as a basis of comparison; an approved model.”.   Modern Liberal Economics would have you believe that there are not two distinct economies, one private and the other public but one, public.  Their analysis in the public economy portends that the universal economy is beholding to the unlimited resources confiscated by government and that by daring to raise revenue, increase taxes, the confiscator would stir the universal economy through unique investment opportunities (government spending) that would produce innovation (new government programs) and equal stabilizing growth for every citizen, corporate and individual (fair and shared costs of effort).  Such artists of Keynesian Theatrics fail to realize the boundaries of governmental intervention and how too great a manipulation of money supply creates artificial growth in specific industries (Banking Industry, GM, Solyndra, etc) while resulting in a weakened economic recovery.  Bleeding the economy with more stimulus will only slow the inevitable outcome of a cataclysmic economic outcome like a depression.  Private industry determines the profitability of a project based on risk and reward and not the nobility of purpose or access to unlimited funding.  Private pursues profit in order to create jobs, innovation and investments in capital and production.  Profit is not a curse word unless defined by the marketers of governmental intervention.  Yet, the model that is preferred of men is private since it grants ownership and authority to the individual or corporate citizen.  Government, the state entity, is insatiable and until it confiscates the whole, none of its noble approaches to solving the individual problems of mankind will ever come to fruition.  Government was not created by free-market capitalists to ever be so large that it would so negatively influence the general marketplace.  There are those that wish to hurry the state sponsored marketplace in order to eliminate the private marketplace.  Installing socialism unto the next generation requires the acceptance of community/social/state property over private and intellectual property.  Public modeling must prevail in order to satisfy the new standard.

Achievement is defined as  ”something accomplished, especially by superior ability, special effort, great courage, etc.; a great or heroic deed”.  It seems that only Exceptional Americanism can be validated where there is a primary role of government.  The only courageous projects, developments or ideals were pursued by those invested in, selected by or submitted to the state.  Hoover Dam is referred to by the President.  However, it was not Hoover Dam that came before private land speculation and economic development.  The latter came first.  However, it is so sexy to blame the government for the great successes of America because the noble idea was always completed without fault or error,  by the resources of the private and corporate citizen.  So who shall tell the story?  Whom must do the indoctrination?  Only those that have a “bully” pulpit.  Their command of the liberal press offers the greatest reach for the new message.  To whom?  Certainly not you!  You are the reason that America has failed.  The New America shall not depend on the individual or the corporation to solve our problems.  Only the State can plan for the unnatural and natural conditions to help its people overcome their limitations in wisdom, experience, effort, courage and ability.  For the State to continuing prospering, it must convince the potential convert that the final noteworthy accomplishment of anything is source in the Sovereignty of government and not man.

Yes, President Obama’s Roanoke, VA Speech is not an accident.  It was the signal to the Progressives to begin an all-out assault on the next generation of thinkers.  They, our children–adult and and grand–will rely upon those recognized as Urban American authoritarians to establish the Common Standard of Achievement.  Without this conversion, the hope for a Universal Declaration of Human Rights dims.  It is possible that a revolution to fundamentally return Amerikka to its political rights alone as unto the Founding Fathers, will take place before Progressives can wield their powerful new authority.  Even New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg encourages the State to exert collective force upon the citizenry in order that citizens relinquish their Second Amendment Rights.

“I don’t understand why the police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say, ‘We’re going to go on strike. We’re not going to protect you. Unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe…’”

Yet, this seems unlikely with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, DC Mayor Vincent Gray, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino all blasting Chick-fil-A for the statements of Dan Cathy.  By the Old Standard, our Constitution would preclude us from focusing to greatly on the blustering of City Leaders.  The New Constitution carved onto our hearts by authors like Obama and Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts requires us to put greater faith in their blustering for they may be empowered to execute even the most idle threat.

The installation of the tenets of socialism, at least at its most frightening level of state sponsored human rights, requires public servants to rebel against the confines of their duties and instigate the eventual revolt of the workers (mob), aligning themselves with the defenders of the one perfect opinion of the state, against constructs and protectors of the rule of law.  The New Constitution points to the taxpayer as the public servant and the elected official as the ruler of the common good.  Every individual and corporate citizen must be able to point to their achievement from the Sovereignty of the Noble State and not from the Sovereignty of a Omniscient, Omnipotent and Inerrant God.  The Savior and Redeemer of the Nation must be the wisdom of the central planning organization that remedied the challenges of nature and man to grant a level outcome for all that subsist under its authority.  It seems that when all is said and done that the high ground will have its Pyrrhic victory and the Barbarians of ideology will all but flee from the land with only the echoes of their unflattering hurl of curses as witness of their presence.  The Progressives have moved on from the US Constitution and are proceeding with quickened steps towards the Utopian idealism of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Conservatives, the battlefield has moved and the Progressives hope that you focus on everything but radically transforming Amerikka back to America.

The Progressive Movement Marches On: What Shall We Do With the Free Man?

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!!” – Samuel Adams
     Brevity shall be my father as I protest America’s sudden re-entry into slavery.  There shall be no great literary score to hide my disdain for the actions of many that have voiced a greater need for dependency, vowed to exchange political rights for economic promises and voted to curry favor with those that marshal forces to oppress an exceptional nation.  My voice shall be loud and abrasive to those that have silently compromised principles with a broth of noble intentions and well meant policies.  This day finds me in great kinship with the fervency of statesman Samuel Adams.  I fear not the wrath of the wicked nor the pretense of those that wade lightly into the brisk currents of political correctness.  Since the close of the Civil War, the Progressive Movement has asked, “What Shall We Do With the Free Man?”  The Movement has evolved into such great strength that today Americans have given it a resounding response, “Make Us Slaves of the Government!”

Socialism is a new form of slavery.
– Alexis-Charles-Henri Clérel de Tocqueville

     By 11:00 AM on June 28, 2012, conservative groups and politicians were e-mailing laments over the United States Supreme Court’s (SCOTUS) ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).  SCOTUS upheld Obama Care as constitutional based on Congress’ taxing authority.  It was a ruling that brought the most ornery Conservative to his knees as if laboring for air from a swift kick to the sternum.  Republicans celebrated this as an assurance of President Barack Obama’s electoral liability and that Chief Justice John Glover Roberts, Jr. was exceedingly clever in hanging the tax anchor about the campaigns of multiple liberals.  How empty this refrain became when played by Mitt Romney’s Campaign.  One moment, Romney sounded as a sincere champion of the Tenth Amendment by stating that he would work for the repeal of Obama Care from Day One.  Within a matter of a weekend, the Romney Campaign finds itself agreeing with the Obama Administration that SCOTUS was wrong, Obama Care is not a TAX!  If you were looking to give leery conservatives confidence in your commitment to Classical Republican principles then, Romney, you lack the wherewithal to provide it.  Other politicians jumped into the ocean of political opportunity to harvest the discontent of the masses.  Their general intent was to provoke Tea Partiers around the world to raise funds for their campaigns.  O, if you don’t send me $10 then, there will be no hope of changing our future.   I fault them not for they are merely doing what their industry requires: take advantage of the sheep!  When the fold surrenders its pursuit of life and liberty for Esau’s supper then, the wolves have no more natural order then to pillage the weak.

     I have come to the conclusion that Americans have lost the battle over whether health care is a right or a privilege.  I believe that the Progressives have achieved their great accomplishment: Equality.   Our Founding Fathers introduced Liberty through the US Constitution’s protection of life, libety and the pursuit of happiness.  Feeling the US Constitution was inadequate, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 80 years ago, ushered in the second generation of human rights called economic rights: social security, education, housing, etc.  Progressives, as both Democrats and Republicans, assaulted the Constitution in every branch of government and even the watchdog press.  Their last undone achievement was universal health care.   Obama achieved that in his presidency.   It is a precedent.  Why do you call it a precedent?  It is something done or said that may serve as an example or rule to authorize or justify a subsequent act of the same or an analogous kind.  Precedents are essential to rooting stability in law and society.  I used the same dictionary that George Stephanopoulos used when he interviewed President Obama.   Even if repealed, the SCOTUS has determined that socialism is a protected way of life if you call it a tax.  Even if Obama Care is repealed, the Progressives have won the battle and will advance their war towards one-world order and global rule.  They will proceed, maybe in the next 10 years when they return to power, on the ambition of the third generation of human rights: Fraternity.  They will include: Group and collective rights; Right to self-determination; Right to economic and social development; Right to a healthy environment; Right to natural resources; Right to communicate and communication rights; Right to participation in cultural heritage; and Rights to intergenerational equity and sustainability. From Liberty to Equality and onward to Fraternity yet, many voters are profane ignorance of the true terrorists of freedom.  If we know not our enemy, it makes no grand difference in the selection of our representation.  The ambassador of chaos is an unruly confidant.

     Why so surly this wonderful 4th day of July 2012?  The Progressives have won this battle and will win the oligarchy war.  Many of my conservative friends will accuse me of being overly dramatic, a man wading beyond the confines of conservatism or a loosened cannon that refuses to align himself with established leaders of the variant political parties. There is some truth to such princely allegations.  I appreciate the many that are rallying to aid the Romney Campaign in a mission to have him save the Republic.  However, it will take more than Repealing Obama Care.  Based on SCOTUS’ decision, for the first time in America, your wealth belongs to the government first and foremost.  We are now slaves to Congress’ Taxing Authority, The President’s Ideological Pursuits and SCOTUS’ ability to rewrite legislation to fit within the scope of Progressiveness.  To get this right, we must repeal the economic rights established since FDR and finalized under Obama.  Which Politician Has the Chops to say this to an American people corrupted by entitlements?

     Elmer T. Peterson in The Daily Oklahoman (9 December 1951) wrote: “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.  It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury.  After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”

We saw the will of the political elite executed in plain sight one week before the Celebration of Our Independence.  We saw the Progressives–Obama and Romney–agree that the establishment of Government Superiority is essential to the future of the Republic.  What say you then, is the future of the Republic when lawlessness and enslavement reigns supreme?  Alexis-Charles-Henri Clérel de Tocqueville said, “The most dangerous moment for a bad government is when it begins to reform.”  When corrupted software is placed on a perfect operating system then, the only expectation is that the operating system will eventually fail.  Whom blames the software because it was perfect in its intent to increase the performance of the machine?  The blame is always placed on the operating system.  The absolute truth is that a corruptible device when added to an existing  framework will always ruin the framework.  Our federal bureaucracy, for the well being of the people, has legally installed socialized medicine onto the framework of free-market capitalism and Constitutional freedom and liberty.  This is certainly not the Republic given to men created in the image of God and possessing inalienable rights.
     We are merely a few treasured moments away from experiencing the prophecy of President Ronald Wilson Reagan, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”  Unless, Conservatives unite and demand the Repeal of FDR, the 16th Amendment and the 17th Amendment.  Yes, on this the very day that we celebrate teh revolutionary zeal of our Founding Fathers, we must bring to rememberance one of the most key notes in the Declaration of Independence:
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
Today, we are the USSA.  Tomorrow, we may be just another third world nation under the rule of elite leaders in the UN.  On this and in my House, we resolve to resist the Philistines of the Progressive Movement and Restore the Glory and Honor of Our Liberties in the US Constitution.  What Shall We Do With the Free Man?  We Shall Do Nothing for He Shall join Us in Liberating the enslaved from the confines of socialism!  Let Liberty be our Cry and Tyranny, our fallen traducer!
