Well...apparently the people we have elected to represent our interest in Washington have all but decided that they really don't care what we think. The Obama energy bill passed the House by the slimmest of margins, and may have a hard time passing the Senate. Just the idea that the Congressional switchboard just about melted down from all the phone calls from the grass roots, telling their representatives not to vote for the energy bill, should have been enough. But it wasn't, so same ole Washington again, not caring at all about their constituents. I will have lost total faith in my Country, and it's citizens, if all of these representatives are not thrown out on their asses in 2010. If, for some odd reason, the bill passes the Senate...it will absolutely kill the agriculture industry in this Country, your fuel costs will at minimum double and we will be living in a state of total ambiguity with regards to how the average citizen will be able to survive. It will kill the coal and oil industry in this Country, which will put millions out of work and reduce the tax base even more. Now of course the left will say that we will have to increase taxes, and then blame it on capitalism, but the administration has totally tanked. Let's be clear now everyone, I have been stating for months that nothing the administration does has anything to do with helping the economy of this Country. He needs you and me desperate for our needs, to keep himself and the left in power. By the time he is through, just about nothing short of a rebellion will do anything to preserve our freedoms. So you might want to call your Senator and remind them you will campaign against them to get them thrown out of office if they vote for this energy bill, and we will see what happens from there!
Now let's discuss the fawning over the passing of Michael Jackson last week. I will say that in the early years, MJ probably did more to make POP what it is today than any one artist in history. That being said, I am appalled at the press (including FOX) making this out to be as if the President of the United States had fallen dead of a heart attack. MJ was, in my opinion, a pedophile who had some deviant behaviors that we would all but put him to death if he were anyone else. The man had some serious emotional problems, as well as a problem with prescription drugs that ultimately killed him. I believe the Energy Bill and the single payer health care system that Obama and Congress wants to shove down our already parched throats, is a bit more important to the Country as a whole than the passing of Michael Jackson. Please don't misunderstand me, I think it is sad to family and friends when anyone passes away. But to give Michael Jackson's memory more coverage than anyone else who passes, is in my opinion done for nothing more than ratings numbers.
Moving along now I would like to talk to the health care plan that appears to be poised to be shoved down our proverbial throats now as well. This, if it passes, will be a the nail in the coffin of not only the American economy but of the Obama Administration and Barack Obama's political career. You know I have been preaching for a long time that all the Congress will listen to is the grass roots; the people who vote. But I am beginning to wonder now, with this Cap-N-Trade bill, just how worried they are. As I stated before, the congressional switchboard just about melted with phone calls from people calling to advise their congress representative NOT to vote for this plan, but they did anyway! I believe that this will play out again when the health care bill is presented to Congress. It won't be read by anyone, no one will be able to tell you what the bill says, or what it specifically does to help American citizens, but it will pass under the pressure of the Administration. It should be no surprise to anyone here that the Government no longer works for the governed, and clearly believes that the governed should give up freedom and prosperity so that the government can control the wealth and you! They really do believe that they are so much smarter than those who are not part of the elite, that they must use their superior intellect to take care of the downtrodden. But there are many intelligent individuals, with common sense no less, who are about ready to revolt against these elitists. This will unfortunately not be a pretty sight, nor will it be conducive to keeping any sort of order in our governmental system...however, it might be necessary! As most of you who know me, know, I believe that we need to try to change this one seat at a time in the upcoming election. But that being said, I believe we are getting closer and closer to this point in time and hope that we can start the process of removing and rebuilding the base of the Government, while axing thousands of jobs that are just not needed to run Government. Government reform would be one of the first orders of business for me, were I ever elected President. It has just gotten too large and too out of control, and we should be ashamed of ourselves that we have paid such little attention over the years to what was going on right under our noses.
Recently, myself and some prominent conservative politicians here in Minnesota, have started what we are naming the Truth Tour Youth Conference. This is a project aimed at teaching the middle school and High School youth of this State and hopefully countrywide one day, about the Constitution and Bill of Rights and how it effects them and their freedoms moving forward at this point in time for them. It also teaches them about facts regarding climate change that they most likely are not getting in school and how decisions, that are being made in the name of global warming, are going to effect their lives and the lives of their children in the future. It is getting massive moral and some financial support, and as of now we are still putting together the curriculum and refining our program. We will have a website associated with this program, where you can go to to read the latest news and information about the tour, or donate if you wish to. So please stay in touch here on the blog and please let me know if you would like to be a part of this movement.
God Bless those who would save this Country!!
