Not trustworthy? Not truthful? Poll numbers slipping?
No sh/% and so what. Ryan’s budget only reduces the rate of spending increases? Again……???
Ten year plan? Ha!!! You think the next ten congresses can’t spend because of what Ryan passes this year? You must be a blast at parties!

Stop looking to the central government to fix the central government. Then where do you look?

It goes like this. You must start with your Mayors, Aldermen, Sheriffs and school board. Small as possible. That’s the easiest way to start. Organize your friends, your neighbors, your social clubs. Easy.

Then get your state representatives elected that are not afraid to stand up for you, the sovereign citizens of your state. Then a governor who believes that his charge is to protect your rights, that the states created the central government and gave it specific and limited authority to perform certain duties and that when they do more than that, when they overstep their authority, when they pass unconstitutional legislation it is their duty to say NO!

It is the Governors DUTY to emphatically refuse to allow their states to be coerced into following unconstitutional laws. It is their duty, not the courts and certainly not the third branch of the central government that created these unconstitutional laws. They must declare these acts, here not laws, null, void and of no effect in their state.

It is as simple as that. It must start locally at the closest level of government as possible. That is still representative government. Those representatives that may know your name and street.

The founders were well aware of the dangers of a growing, tyrannical, oversized government and the centralization of power. They gave us the means to stop it and the best way to do it comes from the constituent parties that created it, the states.

It’s called Nullification and you need to start locally to get those elected who still believe that the constitution is the rule of law, who have those qualities required to represent you.

Honor, Virtue, Honesty and Integrity!

Well, here we go again. Our Peace President is ready to bomb Syria in submission. They have crossed a red line that he told them not to, but recanted and said that the world drew the red line. So he wants to send a couple hundred Tomahawk TLAMs in there at $1.5 million each to do just what? We don’t know. Even as he makes his case to congress, he does not know. To punish Assad for using chemical weapons on his people, I guess. He must be punished, or is it a shot across the bow?

Think back to Libya. The unconstitutional intervention at that time was to take out their Air Force, artillery and provide air support for the civilian rebels that were getting slaughtered. It was definitely not for regime change. But then we bombed every palace, house, tent and tree that we thought Ghaddafi was possibly hiding in. We all remember the gripping scene as they dragged him from that culvert, beating and kicking him before blowing his head off. Humanitarian missions don’t all end good you know.

Well, lets get back to the red line. Two days before this chemical attack, UN Weapons Inspectors arrived in Syria. They were there to investigate a previous chemical attack in March. The Russians and the UN say that the evidence points to the rebels being behind that attack.
Hold the phone! I thought John Kerry said that there were no questions. This is certainly enough for me to hold off a missile attack on a sovereign nation. Russia has provided the United States with other intelligence that points to the rebels. In the spirit of the reset, we have discarded that intelligence at the same time, refusing to share any of our intelligence with the Russian government. That’s right, as the Russians and Chinese send warships of their own to the area, we refuse to share intelligence that could erase the red line.

Another thing you keep hearing is that the Peace President did not need to go to congress and that he still does not need their approval. Well, he’s right they don’t have to approve; but they Do have to vote and grant that authority! That is the constitution.

Article I
8.11 To declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water;

Article II
2.1 The President shall be commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states, when called into the actual service of the United States; he may require the opinion, in writing, of the principal officer in each of the executive departments, upon any subject relating to the duties of their respective offices, and he shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.

The framers were all to aware of the bad things that happen when one man is granted sole power to take a nation to war. There was never any intent to grant that power. Congress declares a war and then the Commander in Chief assumes command for executing that war. Very simple.

George Washington said, “The constitution vests the power of declaring war in Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they shall have deliberated upon the subject and authorized such a measure.” (1793.)

James Madison had this to add, “The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature . . . the executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.” (1793.)

They were extremely clear as it was discussed in the ratification debates and Madison attempted to relax the people in his writing of the Federalist Papers.

There is nothing in the Syria conflict that effects any part of our national security or our national interests. We have not been attacked or even threatened. This comes down to a manhood contest between Assad and our Narcissist in Chief. He can not be questioned or be seen to be weak or wrong. It is a terrible thing to use chemical weapons on people just as it is to lop off their heads with machetes. But I digress.

Our Peace President keeps telling us of the atrocities of dead civilians, women and children killed and laying under their burial shrouds. They weren’t combatants, they weren’t fighting. They were killed and the Assad regime needs to be held responsible.

Allow me to close with this question. Who will hold our Peace President responsible for the women, children and non-combatants killed by the multitudes of drone strikes he has ordered in countries we are not at war with, nor have we declared hostilities against like Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia?

Are those women and children any less dead? Their fathers, mothers, siblings any less sad or enraged? Is the killing of civilians in a sovereign nation not against these world norms?

Any military action in Syria will be a blatant act of aggression by our country upon a sovereign nation embroiled in its own civil war. The ordering of such will qualify as High Crimes and misdemeanors and our Peace President should be impeached.

Chris Christie hits the news shows to set the record straight and warn them of Rand Paul and this dangerous brand of Libertarianism. Give me a break! Allow me to vent please……

It’s not a strain of Libertarianism you fat statist bastard.

It is called conservatism, which seeks to conserve something; like the rights the founders sought to protect with the first ten amendments. A list of amendments that were put forth as a precondition for some states to agree to ratify the constitution and become part of a union.

You see Bluto, some founders, like George Mason, Patrick Henry, Richard Henry Lee and others who were commonly referred to as anti-federalists knew that the Constitution was not enough. They knew that people like you would usurp our liberty in the name of safety for example.

They could see that people like you would seek to spy on the citizenry, frisk them, demand to search their belongings or homes because you felt it was necessary to protect them. They saw the danger of a central government forcing the entire citizenry to participate in a national program like health care.

No, you are the danger to the Republican Party. For you are not a [r]epublican. It is people like you, Marco and Jeb who will run and split the party right down the middle. You and people of your jacobin ilk will cause the small [r] republicans to have their party split down the middle and sent once and for all the way of the Whig Party. It is y’all who will hand the country to an incompetent woman named Hillary and end the republic.

For the simple fact that you sir, seek to conserve nothing.

The clips from the Staten Island town hall meeting was sad. FEMA? Warned everyone about them before. Exactly why the central govt. does not need to be involved. FEMA should be shut down and the states need to take care of themselves.

One angry individual stated that he had no power or water and no home. He said that he was the middle class and he was being screwed. You are correct sir; you are being screwed. The same as the tornado victims, wildfire victims, Katrina and BP victims. No worse, just screwed.

Screwed by a federal government who has taken the mantle of disaster relief and runs it as efficiently as the Post Office, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the TSA and very soon your health care. Do you see what you have to look forward to?

Now, a Marxist leaning president has been elected on class warfare. Surely he wasn’t elected for not closing GTMO, not passing a budget, not ending the wars. Not by leading, but from the golf course and vacation playgrounds. He was elected by a party who had abortion on demand as a party plank, a nonexistent war on women and promises to tax the rich to pay their fair share.

Yes, elections have their consequences and now you must deal with it. Right before the election, Obama donned the presidential FEMA jacket and promised y’all that you were not alone. He is in this with you, all the way, 100% until the end. So, welcome to the Oligarchy my friends and if you still have no FEMA relief before Christmas; you can call good ole Barack.

The area code will be 808 and he will be there for about four weeks on a $4 Million Dollar TAXPAYER funded vacation while you await your promised aid and listen to how mold and flooding aren’t covered and your homes are not really that bad. Submit your paperwork and get in line.

Or you can join a drum circle, grab a bullhorn and take to the streets. You see, this IS what democracy looks like.
