I can't stand it anymore.

The current congress and administration of the United States persists in terrorizing the people. Government control of health care access is unconstitutional, as you can verify for yourself. If this congress and administration actually enacts control of health care access, they are in rebellion against lawful government in the United States. The people will need to act to put down this rebellion with whatever force is required.

This is the list of the powers of congress specified in the Constitution.

Article 1, Section 8
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

To borrow money on the credit of the United States;

To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

To establish Post Offices and Post Roads;

To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;

To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations;

To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

To provide and maintain a Navy;

To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings; And

To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

These powers are specially limited by the tenth amendment.

Amendment 10
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Let's roll

"Let's roll" is a good war cry against arrogant Leftist government sponsored terror.

"Let's roll" are the words Todd Beamer said to his compatriots on Flight 93 during the terrorist hijacking. Mr Beamer was an ordinary American resisting another kind of terror that day.

Shoot 'em first healthcare option

My aunt occasionally sends me political email. She forwarded this one from a friend of hers.

Here is the solution:

While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my sister-in-law the other day, I think we have found the solution. I am sure you have heard the ideas that if you're a senior you need to suck it up and give up the idea that you need any health care. A new hip? Unheard of. We simply can't afford to take care of you anymore. You don't need any medications for your high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc. Let's take care of the young people. After all, they will be ruling the world very soon.

So here is the solution. When you turn 70, you get a gun and 3 bullets. You are allowed to shoot one senator and 2 representatives. Of course, you will be sent to prison where you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head and all the health care you need! New teeth, great! Need glasses, no problem! New hip, knee, kidney, lung, heart? Well bring it on. And who will be paying for all of this? The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care. And, since you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income tax.

Then my aunt added, "I especially like her take on term limits. Much quicker than my suggestion of voting them out which could take from 2 to 6 years."

Two Governors

Two “Democratic” Party Members

Washington State has an overspending problem. The current governor, Christine Gregoire, is hoping to raise taxes another $2000 per person per year to pay for her hyper spending plans. This increase is on top of a 60% increase in both taxation and spending in her previous four year administration (from 2005). She is about as negligent a governor as a state can get.

Gregoire's immediate predecessor, Gary Locke, also a democrat, was the opposite. He heard the people howling under heavy taxation. Governor Locke struggled against a spending crazed Legislature to contain the budget within the limits set down by the people's initiatives.

To be clear, I think Mr Locke's vision of government is too intrusive. But He conducted himself in a trustworthy and responsible manner while he was at the helm. His politics are not to my preference, but he certainly earned my respect.

On the other hand, Gov. "Chris" Gregoire has no self-restraint. She will take everything on the table and demand more. Not only does this make the state budget out-of-kilter, it has driven many important businesses (read tax-producing resources) out of the state.

This comparison points up the essential problem with an enlarged public sector. The results will depend on who is at the helm. If the person is competent and respectful, the resulting government is okay. But if the person is inept, insulting and condescending, the results are disaster. The contrast between Gary Locke, Democrat, and Christine Gregoire, Democreep, could not be more stark.

Real National Emergency

"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

No mention is made of climate change or government control of medical access. The Constitution is secure right for the people, not regulations.

The current Congress and president of the United States is completely outside the Constitution. They is outlaw.

Impeach, Try, Convict, Imprison. When necessary, we the people must act.

Democrats don't run government, they control it.

Government cannot be allowed to intimidate the citizens. We must stand our ground. Indeed, it's the citizens' job to tell government how we want to be governed.

The same is true with regard to the voters' ballot box decisions. Each one is a clear expression of voter will, following a lengthy, free, and open debate. It is the job of elected representatives to abide by those decisions by the voters. Over and over again, the voters have repeatedly approved limits on government's power, especially when it comes to their unending desire to take more of the people's money. Rather than accepting these results and abiding by the people's decision, those in power, currently Democrats, weasel and twist and turn and circumvent the direction the voters decided to go. Our representatives always have the option to listen to the voters - it is antithetical to our state's Constitution for politicians to sue the voters after a public vote, following a free and open debate.

We elect these people to represent us, not rule us.
