How about ole Muslim Barry talking about overturning Obamacare by the Supreme Court (if they indeed do so) as being "unprecedented", while at the same time his DOJ lawyers were attempting to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act at the First Circuit Court of Appeals.  Liberals have no problem with hypocrisy, my guess is mainly because they have no moral compass to begin with.

Socialism anyone? From a friend who sent me this. Unbelievable, indoctrination and re- education no doubt will be included, Mao style.

What do liberals do when their lies are pointed out to them? Many start by going over talking points that have nothing to do with the issue like Obama but if you are Phil Hare you run away like a child. Read More

When you ask a school age child about the Founding Fathers or liberals about them you invariably hear about them owning slaves. This is a concerted effort to belittle and demean them. The liberals are fearful of the people reading the writings of the Founders, there are many of their quotations that warn us of the current dangers of today’s liberal agenda.

Dear Reader:
Here mysticism Ends. Here...Western Civilization Prevails.

Since the dawn of recorded civilization, mysticism, anarchy and tyranny ran like wild dogs in the night impeding the pursuit of liberty. As civilization progressed through Egypt, Crete, Peloponnesia, and the Greek main land, did we see the elements of; truth, duty, honor, justice, reason, science, liberty and freedom take root. We called it the "Classic Period". Instead of building their Temples in the fertile valleys of the Tigris River and worshiping 'earth mother", the Greeks built their Temples on the top of rocky mesa's and said with such stern boldness that would turn the head of Zeus; "By my own Free-well, I will talk to god on my own terms" as he stood their, ever firm, and with his index finger of reason pointed towards the sky's of Olympus and beyond to Hyades, he spoke". My friends, that was the Beatles of its time…And it still is today...And it still is today.
Latter, Rome gave civilization “LAW” in the way of Ciro's.
By the time Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had emerged, the "Italian Renaissance" shown with a light so bright that it burned the shackles of serfdom, those paradigms of reason and liberty reemerged, and like a wide-fires set free with the thunder of reason, the "Age of Enlightenment” of Newton to Eisenstein, spread throughout Europe, America, Australia, India, South Africa, most parts of South America, the Middle East and the Occidental. Even as those relentless dogs of despotism skulked back into the night, retreating back into their darkened dens,dank and dipping with their lust for power, greed and world domination.

Finally, a form of government was created. Pulled from the depths of the long forgotten classic abyss, a Republic, a Republic “Of the People, For the People and By the People. We stand here today, ever diligent, courageous and unwavering, to restore those values of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.
We stand here today, with forces internal and external, ready to snuff out humanities last hope of individual freedom, facing an economic crisis so big, so large, that it borders on the surreal. Images appear, dark, dank and dipping with their eyes glowing red from the fires of the darkest place. Today those relentless dogs are back at our doorstep, sniffing for signs of weakness. But we face them, eye to eye, breast to breast, toe to toe, with enlightened knowledge, weapons at hand, ready to strike at heart of this inglorious beast, knowing that by our own free-will, our pose of self determination...we, and our dream of mankind, will live forever.
God Save The Republic.

Obama has now said he will pursue immigration reform. This will be a push for amnesty no doubt. It is no more than a ploy to garner more votes for the Democrats in coming elections. What is questionable is how many Republicans will support it. What is certain is if passed the people will get stuck with the bill, more taxes. Medicare, medicaid, and social security will be further stressed by the flood of recipients.

Good Ole Boy,
Scott Brown ran on the Repub ticket against Dem Martha Coakley. The only other contender was of the Libertarian Party. Mr. Brown said he will vote independently of either party or rather according to his conscience.

I found this to be an enlightening video of facts and history and thought you would enjoy it also...Vicki

The primary in Illinois came out with liberal RINO Mark Kirk as the Republican contender for the US Senate. The situation is identical to the Massachusetts election of Brown. The RNC endorsed Kirk and he outspent all the other Republicans. The only difference from Massachusetts is Illinois is not as heavily Democratic. A conservative is running as an Independent just as Brown did.

Since this is a page about the Constitution, Kathryn, can I ask you: where in the Constitution does it give the Federal Government the power to create Social Security?
