Last Update: 10 April 2010
Prologue: In September 2008 my wife and I took "paid volunteer" work as Election Judges, and also
as county ballot distribution and auditing workers, to help with the 2008 Primary and General Elections for
Boulder County, Colorado. We worked through December of that year and got to experience every aspect of
the election process, including ballot preparation, distribution, counting, and final polling place auditing.
What we learned from those experiences gave us an alarming realization that all is not well within the polling places and counting rooms of our nations County Clerks offices. I connected with several voting integrity groups to try to raise awareness of the serious problems associated with most ballot processing systems now in use nation wide. After the November 2008 General Election, a great depression came over me as I began to realize there is a systemic sickness stalking America that is far more pervasive and dangerous than mere voting irregularities.
In the text, images, and links that follow I reveal my fears and feelings about what is happening in America. My prayer is that thousands - millions - of Americans agree with me. If not, 'The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave' has slouched into history.

Well... they counted, and they re-counted, and they kept on re-counting the "votes" in Minnesota (many were "found" in car trunks, etc.) until Democrat Al Franken "won" the US Senate election.
That "win" gives the Democrat party a Super (i.e., unbeatable) Majority in the Senate which allows the Pelosi/Reid/0bama medusa to have their unholy way(s) with the US Constitution - against the will of most Americans - at least until the elections in 2010.
Now the Scum-Dogs in Congress (both houses) have almost unlimited power to vote themselves almost unlimited pork whilst ramming through legislation such as the so-called Energy Bill that will drastically alter life in America. The term Scum-Dog includes most Democrats and Republicans, with a few exceptions. In but one example of self-stimulated Scum-Dog perks, the cost of overseas travel for legislators and their families has jumped 50% in only the last two years.
Please read on...
Looking at the national picture, I am completely disheartened that The Electorate (i.e., the pool of eligible and legal United States voters) has apparently become totally self serving, whoring itself to whichever political party promises the biggest handouts.
Charles Krauthammer, one of the few editorialists that I respect, sums it up this way:
"They [Democrats] understand it [recent political losses] through a prism of two cherished [Democrat] axioms:
(1) The people are stupid and (2) Republicans are bad. Result? The dim, led by the malicious, vote incorrectly".
For the record, my disrespect for the Republican Party is only very slightly less than my disrespect for the Democrat Party. For a century both parties have disrespected and battered the United States Constitution (as have all three branches of our government). For this breach of trust I will not support either party in any way. I say this not as a partisan whiner but as a Citizen who believes that bribery on every scale is morally wrong. At least one other American feels the same way about this as I do: Joe the Plumber!
The steamroller tactics of our elected officials (includes the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches), as demonstrated during the "debate" and passage of the so-called Stimulus Package, "TARP," and Universal Healthcare - all clearly un-Constitutional - reveals their true colors beyond any doubt in my mind. The attempt to lay the financial meltdown at the feet of the previous Bush administrations is clearly, absolutely, without merit. Any reasonable person would have to agree that there is plenty of culpability to lather entire generations of government officials, their appointees, and representatives of both parties with the thick scum of their own obfuscation, mendacity, and broken promises. Not even six months into his presiduncy, 0bama fired his own Inspector General for exposing (i.e., whistleblowing on) "gross misappropriation" of Federal AmeriCorps grants to St Hope School by an 0bama contributor (NBA star Kevin Johnson). So much for 0bama's touted 'new trust and openness.' Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) has launched a probe of the sordid affair.
Here is an
excellent essay by a black Army colonel
who says that '0bama is like some alien
Kanamit from the Twilight Zone'
who is feverishly rolling out his plan 'To Serve America''. Be sure to click on the
image at left to read a little about the real Serve America Act - now the law of the land - which
passed through both houses of Congress in a stunning example of Democrat fast-track ramrodding (less than 6 weeks).
In the words of the late, great reporter
"Always love your country — but never trust your government! That should not be misunderstood. I certainly am not advocating civil disobedience, must less insurrection or rebellion. What I am advocating is to not expect too much from government and be wary of its power, even the power of a democratic government in a free country. Ours is one of the mildest, most benevolent governments in the world. But it too has the power to take your wealth and forfeit your life - a government that can give you everything can take everything away."BACK TO TOP
Please read Part I and Part II of this info on the Federal Reserve [which is not federal and has no reserves). Then read about Fabian's Fabulous Money Machine to see how "money" came to be and how governments always abuse it.
In late 2009 the number of gummint employees exceeded the number of productive workers in the USSA. If not reversed, this intersection-point marks the dawning of the End Of Days for our Republic. Folks, it's going to get real hot around noon, and few will be left standing by sunset. Are you ready for Armageddon?
Michelle Malkin ends 2009 with a flourish with her scathing report on Washington whoring: Cash for Corruptocrats. Read it.
There is a 3-Step Cure for all of this:
You should bookmark this link to Recovery.gov. Peruse this site thoroughly because on it you will find some disturbing details of where your grandchildren's tax money is going. Examples:
OBFUSCATION ALERT: In the first two links immediately above, two insidious examples of government censorship are evident:
Both of the first two links immediately above used to have a straight forward statement that their monetary allocations were for "Process Cheese" and "Canned Pork", respectively. But after they were exposed on the July 20th 2009 Drudge Report the government-designed web pages were altered to obsure for what product the money was intended. Now to see this level of detail, the visitor (YOU, THE TAXPAYER) must notice and obey a line of fine print at the very bottom of the page that whispers "Mouse-over the PIID to see the project description." If you are clever enough to do all that, then you will get to see something like this. And 'why?', may I ask, does the line contain the misleading (i.e., disinformation) word that refers to 'project' rather than to product ?? By the way, you can see more Drudge Headlines here. As of 12 September 2009, absolutely all history of the government website www.recovery.gov has been scrubbed from the historical, public records of the "Wayback Machine" internet archive. It (recovery.gov) is not even listed as being among the thousands of government websites listed by the Wayback Machine (maintained by archive.org)! It is as if the recovery.gov website was just created today. What about the First Amendment? What government agency, czar, or committee has the Constitutional authority to so-censor this, or any, free speech? This is definitely the work of sinister forces circling within the 0bamasphere. The Powers That Be do not want you to be aware of their intentions. This linked article is among the first (but surely not the last) hard evidence that lawmakers want to keep their work secret so you don't know what they're up to.
In the link further above that refers to "Agency total funding," a previous version of the page (June 2009), NASA and National Endowment for the Arts were allocated equal amounts of your grandchildren's tax dollars. Investments in NASA (who took us to the moon) have been paying immeasurable dividends for over 40 years. Now NASA wants to take us to Mars, but funding cuts have postponed plans indefinitely. In early 2010, 0bama (er, 0bama) even cut NASA funding for future moon flights. In view of this, why should the NEA be given an equal $50 billion of We The People's dollars for funding projects such as representations of nude homosexual acts or statues of Jesus in a bottle of urine?
By the way, there is a difference between the National Debt and the Federal Deficit. The Deficit is the annual shortfall between Federal spending and Federal taxes collected. The Deficit is then added to the National Debt. Here... take a look at who pays the taxes on all this debt. Since we all do, it would be far less burdensome if the USA adopted a National Sales Tax and abolished the IRS. The oldsters among us will find this audio parody of the 50's tune 16 Tons an apt description of what 0bama and his minions are doing to We The People (and our grandchildren)! Mother's Day Alert: A May 11th report shows the Deficit will be $1.84 trillion for fiscal year ending September 30 2009.
You must bookmark this link to the Official US Debt Clock website!
I suspect all the hand wringing about stolen elections and illegal
influence may be little more than a red herring thrown out to deflect
discovery of what seems to be a carefully hidden
Socialist political agenda of the
ruling party. 'Exactly what,' you may ask, 'is a Socialist?' A good definition can be found
at this link. Read
this excellent article by Pat Buchanan (the President we might have had) on the new Socialist America.
BACK TO TOP
pathetic piece of school brainwash propaganda, a virtual
Hymn to 0bama, was performed by Negro students at the
Ron Clark Academy, who were exploited (er, taught) by founder
Ron Clark (a Marxist/Socialist/??? white man). In the video, students
"pray" to 0bama to 'forgive us our debts' and worship him with reverent praise,
saying 'You are a role model, a father figure'...
Read the lyrics and vomit. This is but one example why the "democratic" majority of
the voters (i.e., Democrat supporters) will be even less likely to escape utter slavery in the next generation!
Think the steaming piece pf propaganda above is just an isolated case? Think again because the forces behind the Dumbing Down of America are at work in schools everywhere. Here are three more sad, sorry examples of our children being indoctrinated to worship 0bama In this school-kid video, I am not sure if they are being trained to worship 0bama or to be his successors. But wait! - There's more! These are school kids being brainwashed on 'HOPE' and 'CHANGE' [Oops - Original video has been scrubbed by YT] so they can be contented subjects.
I'm not making this up, folks. The 0bama administration, and/or its sycophantic minions, are cynically and systematically brainwashing our young. BigHollywood has just uncovered almost a dozen more propaganda videos of our school children's minds being conditioned to worship and serve 0bama. MARCH 2010 Alert: While checking that the links to these videos still worked, I [Dan Martin] discovered that all but one or two had been scrubbed from YouTube. Fortunately the lyrics and school locations still remain.
Seems that the Progressive Propagandists running our schools are afraid for us to know about their continual brainwashing of our children. Their Progressive/Liberal agenda is all-pervasive within our public schools (Kindergarten through college), promoted by the NEA (teachers union). Teenagers are now being told that their parents are basically irrelevant and misguided, and definitely in need of The Talk. Have you had yours yet? By the way, this excrement is straight from the 0bama campaign.
These 0bama school worship/propaganda videos are active as of 02 March 2010. There are many more related examples, which YouTube will conveniently offer up to you as you watch each of the below:
d9WOod26BH0 9vorS6Fdbu8 0mvP0ArKIGY Leoqa9i-5Jk ua3fpleJC3Q 6Fjj6a8aBNU ISWjrxPXga FO3NBqT3LBc sCDEPSoA-Mw ettl3zfLWus 1_l8KK3gGxQ Yi4VhcjY2rE fzqWQz5OmvE 08BAfKCfu74
Fortunately, it is the nature of the internet that once something is put "out there" a natural progression leads to geometric duplication as viewers and systems make personal and archival copies. At least for now this phenomenon blocks all attempts to alter, censor, stifle, purge, and scrub web content which is deemed to be an embarassment or too revealing (such as the child-brainwashing videos above).
The first weapon you have against cover-up and obfuscation is to immediately make your own local copy of any website information that you think represents critical evidence or information - before it gets purged or altered. On Windows-based computers, the [Alt][PrintScreen] key sequence grabs a memory-copy of any image on the screen. From there, you can paste the image into any photo editor software and then save it somewhere on your hard drive. Enter "copy youtube video" into Google and it will return many links to places offering info on that subject.
The second primary resource of no-longer-available web information is "The Wayback Machine". Wayback archives copies of web pages "the way they were" on various days going back years.
While watchdog factions thrash about, arguing if paper ballots or voting machines best express "voter intent," the voters - clearly motivated by a "get mine first" mentality - purposefully elected politicians (both state and national) who are brazenly trashing the Constitution in a Perfect Storm of unfunded new entitlements.

Yet another example is the new ObamaCare program that will further bankrupt our National Treasury. Social Security and Medicare are both in deep trouble yet the fools in Washington keep putting more 'on the tab.' Imagine your child wakes up crying at 2 AM on Sunday morning with a fever of 104. Study the diagram at left (click to enlarge) - How would you like to start the process of finding which Government-approved Emergency Room is open on weekends in your county? Welcome to DMV-like ("take a number" "you don't have the right forms" "you're in the wrong line") "FED MED" healthcare! Watch this brief 1950s clip by actor Ronald Reagan on Socialized Medicine. So you can see just how free 0bamaCare is, here is a link to a list of the new taxes the Senate version imposes. Download the .pdf version here.
Let the scarcity begin: On the last day of 2009, Mayo Clinic announced Medicare cutbacks, saying the U.S. government pays too little. Woah! The $500 Billion in cuts to Medicare contained within the Democrat 0bamaCare "Health Plan" hasn't even started to kick in yet! Hope all of us enjoy paying for Democrat-mandated health insurance which has ever fewer, and fewer, Doctors and hospitals in the "network."

Please watch this humorous Ray Stevens video on what We The People are going to do to the
incumbent politiciansin 2010. Ray is famous for his tune Ahab the A-rab
(thanks to Bobby Goodwin for the video tip).
Recently, I received an email from an internet friend. It contained so many good points that I have reproduced it here:
Dear Comrade 0bama and 99% of all members of both Houses of the US Congress:
It is now official: Your record clearly shows that the majority of you are either morons or stealth saboteurs of our Republic. Examples:
The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775 - you have had 234 years to get it right; it is broke. Social Security was established in 1935 - you have had 74 years to get it right; it is broke. Fannie Mae was established in 1938 - you have had 71 years to get it right; it is broke.. War on Poverty started in 1964 - you have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor"; it hasn't worked. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965 - you've had 44 years to get it right; they're broke Freddie Mac was established in 1970 - you have had 39 years to get it right; it is broke Trillions of dollars in the massive political payoff called the TARP bill of 2009 shows NO sign of working.
And finally to set a new speed record for failure:
"Cash for Clunkers" was established in 2009, went broke in 2009, and defaulted on payments to car dealers! Each Cash4Clunker sale cost $24,000 to taxpayers.
So with a near 100% failure rate and a record that proves that "services" you shove down our throats are failing faster and faster, you want Americans to believe you can be trusted with a government-run health care system? 15% of our economy? Are you crazy? Truly, the inmates are running the asylum! What does this say about voters who put such pond scum in office...hmmm? Maybe we need to let everyone know about this "brilliant" voting record before 2010 and just vote against all incumbents. So once again... it's official: none of you are to be trusted - and I don't care what your party affiliations are!
A friend recently sent me some numbers he ran on the Cash For Clunkers and found this:
What a bargain for us US taxpayers !
Did anyone run the numbers ? ? ?
I guess I must be on the wrong page… A vehicle at 15 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 800 gallons a year of gasoline. A vehicle at 25 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 480 gallons a year. So, the average clunker transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year. They claim 700,000 vehicles – so that's 224 million gallons / year. That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil. 5 million barrels of oil is about ¼ of one day's US consumption. And, 5 million barrels of oil costs about $350 million dollars at $75/bbl. (high compared to current price) So, we all contributed to spending $3 billion to save $350 million. How good a deal was that??? They'll probably do a great job with health care though!!
Did you vote for a CLOP ??
I can no longer find any motivation for seeking to change the voting technology in Colorado (or anywhere else) when We The People (aka The Electorate) consistently - even eagerly - elect Criminals, Liars, Opportunists, and Panderers into office. Yet all too often I feel such "CLOPs" are the only choices offered up by the two parties:
"Raise your glass to the hard working people.
Let's drink to the uncounted heads
Let's think of the wavering millions
Who want leaders but get gamblers instead.
Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter,
His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows,
And a parade of gray-suited grafters
...A choice of cancer or polio."
From "The Salt of the Earth"
C. 1969 Mick Jagger and Keith Richard
One must also keep in mind that an incumbent CLOP will also tend to:
For these reasons I also support Congressional Term Limits (two terms) just as the President is limited to two terms. I believe a fresh, inexperienced Criminal is less a threat to the Republic than a cunning, well-seasoned one. Please take a look at this simple voting strategy for the next - and every - election. Using it can quickly reverse the current socialist trend in Washington, D.C.
Corrupt the few non-CLOP candidates who get elected, and Demonize (or even Criminalize) a non-CLOP who is an opposing candidate.
These well-known CLOPs (er, politicians) all have something in common:

OH, NO - Democrat Congress touts
H.J. Res. 5 to
remove 0bama term limit via Constitutional
I believe that protecting the Constitutional eligibility (i.e., the integrity) of The Electorate has priority over maximizing the total number of votes. I am absolutely opposed to "register now, vote now" advocacy groups such as ACORN ( website here). During the 2008 election more than half of the voter registrations turned in by ACORN were not valid, per House Judiciary subcommittee testimony. ACORN is finally being revealed as a subversive and seditious Socio-Communist operation. Read for yourself the July 2009 US House of Representatives ACORN Crime Report, which includes findings such as:
But does all that bother the 0bama administration?
ACORN's illegal acts harms the workers whom ACORN is supposed to protect. ACORN’s $5 Million dollar embezzlement cover-up constitutes extreme fraud. ACORN loaned money without proper legal documentation. ACORN has not complied with IRS filing requirements or ERISA. Lobbying is a substantial part of what ACORN does. ACORN receives federal funding yet engages in improper lobbying. ACORN only endorses Democrat politicians. ACORN keeps privileged donor records from the Clinton, Kerry, and Obama campaigns. ACORN uses Democrat donor records with intent to engage in prohibited communications. Two videos from two different Acorn offices show Acorn employees advising illegal actions. Under investigation in CA, ACORN dumps thousands of documents. ACORN and none of its affiliates have properly reported their political activities to the IRS.
"Over the last several months, through ongoing communication with our regional offices, it is clear that ACORN's affiliation with the 2010 Census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has indeed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 Census efforts... For the reasons stated, we therefore have decided to terminate the partnership."22 Feb 2010 Alert!
ACORN pushes self-destruct button. ACORN crash-dives underground. Stealth plan has ACORN now changing its name state by state.

This is especially frightening when you realize that, beginning in 2009, this new Big Brother style census is also GPS-tagging your home's front door. Naturally you have not heard of this on the mainsewer media because it is almost an official secret. You can read more about the startling details from more and more sources, this being another. Imagine a crisis is afoot, and martial law is put into place. U.S. troops need to round up particular folks (perhaps those pesky conservatives). 0bama wants to decrease the number of folks in the military and the USSA may not have enough military forces at home to deal with a rising national "emergency". If 0bama decided to rely on foreign troops, perhaps United Nations personnel, most of which may not understand the street signs, they could use GPS devices to deliver firepower to your front door. With the-powers-that-be wanting to know who you are and exactly where you live, it is imperative that registration of new Voters and ballot distribution & control should be no less rigorous than that our government requires for gun ownership and use. If this notion be too conspiracy-theory for your taste, then maybe you will become outraged by this example of tax dollars wasted by the US Census Dept.
In some way, and I do not yet have an idea how, we all must promote
the strengthening of our Republic through promoting the belief by
more voters that (1) Adherence to the US Constitution and (2) the
continued viability, both economic and sociological, of our nation
is far more important than personal gain and political power.

The implication is that much work must be done towards minimizing, and reversing, the now obvious results of pimping ever more "free lunch" issues to the gullible and greedy voting masses... a disease I call "democracy perfected." One sad-but-true definition of democracy is: 'two coyotes and a sheep voting on what to eat for lunch.' The word democracy does not appear anywhere within either the US Constitution or the Declaration of Independence yet we constantly hear government officials, media anchors, and educators refer to 'our democracy'. Please never forget this: America is a Republic by constitutional invocation. This excellent video clip defines the differences among the various forms of government: dictatorship, oligarchy, democracy, republic, and anarchy. You can download and review this Freedom Index Scorecard to discover how unconstitutionally your own Congressthings have voted.

Day by day, I become more and more convinced that debate over the voting process and its mechanisms is far less important than the reform of the worldview - the very heart - of The Electorate.
To the point and as a direct example, I firmly believe that most selfish motives within The Electorate would fade away if there were majority acceptance of Glenn Beck's "9 Principles and 12 Values" within the general US population, especially among the young. I believe such a change of heart would completely overcome any possible adverse effects attributable to occasional election error, or even fraud. Chuck Norris agrees with the "9&12", too. Here they are:
You can read more about Glenn's "9 Principles and 12 Values" on his "We Surround Them" web page. Take a long, serious look at Glenn's The 912 Project and at the awesome We The People mosaic comprised of hundreds of thousands of pictures of Americans who have affirmed their support for Glenn's "9&12" plan for renewing America. Yes, I might have written some of the 9&12 a bit differently, and in maybe a different order (or added some), but I feel that the general tenor of the 9&12 are all well within the boundaries of my own social, moral, fiscal, and patriotic standards - hopefully, yours too.
Glenn Beck himself says that agreement with any 7 of the 9 Principles
he lists qualifies a person as being of similar mind with the overall
spirit of his points. Dare you assess your own beliefs by his common-sense measures?

At any rate, I wish more of our nation saw themselves as American Citizens first and only, rather than as partisan Republicans, partisan Democratics, or any sort of hyphenated cultural crossbreed.
"If there must be trouble
let it be in my day,
that my child may have peace."
-- Thomas Paine, Founding Father
In these two YouTube videos, which you must (must) watch, a modern-day Thomas Paine speaks to all Americans. In the first he calls on We the People to take back our common heritage. And in the second he pleads with each of us to re-unite and depose the despots and tyrants that have overthrown the national institutions that our Founding Fathers handed down to us. This is a national emergency that transcends political power - it will determine the very survival of our Republic. Please, flood the Congressional Switchboard (866-340-9281) with your calls and tell them how you feel.
Thomas pain had a knack for speaking about Freedom and the forces arrayed against it. Below are a few more quotes of his that speak volumes for the problems that face America today:
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as Freedom should not be highly rated." "Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it." "Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best stage, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one." "What was at first plunder assumed the softer name of revenue."
There are many on-line resources for additional quotes from Thomas Paine that you can look up if you wish.
One is here and another is here.
And here is where you can track what the rascals in Congress are doing: BACK TO TOP
"At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reaches us, it must spring up among us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time, or die by suicide.One of the most recent and far-reaching examples of an ill omen loose among us is the national suicide embedded within the toxic new Immigration/Amnesty Bill. In this mega-shock video, CNN's Lou Dobbs cites many horrendous examples of Constitution-busting pro-illegal-alien regulations hidden deep within the I/A bill. Please download it and watch in shock and awe at the outrage our government has foisted upon We The People.
- There is even now something of ill omen among us."
Therefore, I am leaving behind what I see as a true "tempest in a teapot" (endless debate about the merits and risks of competing voting systems). My future efforts will be directed towards trying to re-boot the soul of The Electorate into a healthy state of love for the US Constitution, renewed respect for hard work, and (most of all) personal responsibility.
The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as follows:

What can you do today? Begin by calling for support in your state for explicit legislative passage and enforcement of the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution (part of The Bill of Rights), such as Oklahoma (here's a May 2009 update), Texas (full text of the Resolution is here), Montana, and Alaska and other states are doing right now. There is more info on the 10th Amendment here. In early 2009 United States Rep. John Shadegg, R-Ariz., has embodied the spirit of the 10th Amendment within H.R. 450, the Enumerated Powers Act. Demand that your US Senators and Representatives read, support, and vote in favor of H.R. 450.
My prayer is that Americans, as a unified people, will once again turn towards Liberty, and turn away from corruption. If not, then soon it will be A Time For Pitchforks and a time for TEAPARTY NOW! See the April 15th teaparty in Denver, Colorado for a good look at how at least 1,000,000 fellow Americans felt on that day.
It deeply frightens me how many "red headlines" and flashing "red alert" signals I have seen in the Drudge headlines over just the first few months of 2009. Their frequencies are now unprecedented across the 12 years I've been watching the DRUDGE REPORT. See for yourself at this archive of Drudge Headlines that I have put together. There is something wrong in America - something of an Ill Omen is indeed loose among us and is stalking our freedom. I believe We The People finally began to stalk it back with the Teaparties of April 15, 2009.
The really big show is going to be on
September 12th, 2009 in Washington, D.C. (website is
here). Watch this patriotic
YouTube video in which
"Thomas Paine" warns our
wayward politicians what will happen to them if they do not take heed! I pray
that the unholy Beast that has rampaged in the halls of our government, unchecked for three generations,
will be put back in its cage forever on that historic day.
The march on Washington, D.C. on 12 September 2009 was a great success - at least attendance-wise. While most of the [formerly] "mainstream media" downplayed the attendance as being only hundreds or maybe even thousands - you can see in these pictures that actual attendance was obviously far in excess of that. Even better, view this 40-second YouTube time-lapse video of the crowd as it gathered on that day. The White House on Friday claimed it was unaware of the planned rally. Either: (1) Yettanuther example of an outright White House lie, or, (2) The White House is totally out of touch with We The People. The best reporting on the event was done by World Net Daily. FOX News did a fine job, too. Unfortunately, most news outlets characterized the rally as being "anti-tax" or "anti-0bama" when in fact it was mostly an anti-spending demonstration. That same evening I watched some black, female, Democrat politician pontificating on FOX, saying that the attendees were using 'McCarthyism tactics' and carrying 'KKK-like' signs. I did not catch who it was, but if I find out I will certainly post her picture, email address, and phone number. She is definitely one of those who should be thrown out of office in the 2010 elections. In spite of this woman's elitist, condescending attitude and condemnation, the rally was without any violence. 'How little violence,' you ask? Washington D.C. Police reported zero arrests for the Teaparty crowd during the entire day. Can you imagine a demonstration of similar size by Acorn, SEIU, PETA, and similar leftist groups being so well behaved??
Please consider sending this Pledge (click on image at right to enlarge, then right-click to download) to
each and every one of your elected Federal Officials. Send it to the White House, too. Ask each of
your Senators, Representatives, and even 0bama himself, to sign and return it to you. In the cover letter, explain
that they are either IN or OUT in 2010 depending on their response. Explain that you will work
to expel from office each and every Congressperson who cannot answer an enthusiastic YES! in
support of all 5 pledges. Even if 0bama cannot be
un-elected in 2010, he can be impeached (i.e., brought to trial for malfeasance) and, if found
guilty, thrown from office. Thanks to
Glenn Beck for this Pledge and plan of action: Glenn suggests that The American People seek
56 "Re-Founders" in the 2010 election, both Democrat and Republican, who are willing and able to pledge
uncompromising allegience to the
US Constitution and renounce the corrupting influence of party politics
and personal power.
Read his entire essay here. This will not be easy, especially considering the
tragedies that happened
to the original 56 Founders who signed the
Declaration of Independence.

In June 2009 a grandmother wrote an
Open Letter to America's Leaders. I know not if she is black, white - it does not
matter. What does matter is that she was a long-time a Democrat, then more recently she tried
being a Republican. She quickly realized that nobody in our national government was working for We The People.
read that letter.
Open Letter to America's Leaders
Here is its final paragraph:
"Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don't care. Political parties are
meaningless to us. Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that
matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is
ours and we want it back. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest.
As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and
needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired.
Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them. Because
we will get you fired and they will not save you. If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please
stand up. Make your identity known. You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I need to know who you are.
If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn
congress if need be one by one. We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent?
What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming. We The People are coming."

April 2009 Alert: Do you agree with one or more of the statements below:
If you agree with even one of the statements above, then the US Department of Homeland Security has targeted you (and me) in this manifesto against "Rightwing Extremism." You can download the full text of it here.

Are you Mad As Hell?
As Howard Beale said in the 1976 movie Network:
"I'm As Mad As Hell And I'm Not Gonna Take This Anymore!"
What is one to do? First, you've got to get mad!
So far in 2009, even after the April 15th Teaparties, the Democrat and Republican legislators continue to pass ever more spending bills and to trash the U.S. Constitution. 0bama and his appointees continue in their jack-booted march toward Socialism and to trash the U.S. Constitution. Activist U.S. Supreme Court judges continue to legislate (instead of interpret) from their ivory benches, trashing the U.S. Constitution with almost every "finding".
There is going to be a massive Teaparty in Washington, DC, on September 12, 2009. Imagine if 5,000,000 of us descended on Washington, DC, stormed the US Congress, Whitehouse, and US Supreme Court buildings, then dragged all of the occupants out into the streets and just beat them! Do you think that then they would listen to us?
However attractive though the thought, your personal liberty (and maybe even your life) would be forfeit if you even tried to beat some sense into the DC Scum-Dogs. Perhaps a better way would be to join forces with The Free State Project. The FSP is planning to move thousands of families to New Hampshire (over 700 are already there). The notion is not so crazy once you look into the advantages of living in the free state of New Hampshire (101 Reasons).

Think about it...
An August 2009 AT&T/Yahoo poll shows that 80% of those surveyed (almost 3 million people) think 0bama's actions are hurting America.
But if you still think the best course is to appease and pacify (i.e., 'just get along' with) those who are usurping America's values and Constitution, then you can:"Swear allegiance to the flag, whatever flag they offer.
Never hint at what you really feel. Teach the children quietly,
for some day sons and daughters will
rise up and fight while we stood still."

WHY DOES US DEPT OF EDU NEED 27 SWAT SHOTGUNS?? WHY IS IRS BUYING 60 SWAT SHOTGUNS ???
2 dozen here, 5 dozen there... Pretty soon there will be a thousand(s).
Looks like the 0bama Regime is getting ready for some serious crowd control...
or "Special Elections"...
or martial law...
or maybe to arm his brownshirt youth army...
One if by land, two if by sea...
Meanwhile, for those of us who have retreated far enough - too far - I commend these timeless words of a past Patriot:"Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? ... They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Gentlemen may cry, 'Peace, Peace' but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? … Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
- Patrick Henry
Or, if death is too much of a commitment or you're just too conflicted to act, then the lyrics (click at right) from Jackson Browne's "Next Voice You Hear" (4.5 Mb .mp3) may soon be your own fate:

In Red Skelton's own, heartfelt words: The Pledge of Allegiance
FOUNDING FATHERS QUOTES -- read and heed them...
THE 56 MEN WHO SIGNED -- we must not squander their sacrifices.
To Mr. 0bama, the ACLU, and all the other people who take offense to, or try to deny, or try to eradicate America's Judeo-Christian heritage I give them this: Here in America, In God We Still Trust.

I am damn tired of the Washington Whores making special rules and exceptions for themselves, such as "Cadillac" health and retirement plans. It's about time that Congress enjoys no more benefits - and no fewer restrictions - than WE THE PEOPLE! Hence I propose that WTP demand nothing less than this:
Proposed: Constitutional Amendment 28
Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United
States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives,
and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or
Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the
United States .
I absolutely believe that the Congress, the Supreme Court, and the 0bama Administration are colluding and conspiring to "fundamentally transform" (0bama's words) the American form of government into Socialism and its society into a Godless and amoral pit of sex & greed. This is the first time in my long life that I think there is a good chance that it will actually be accomplished. Self-styled Progressive economic and social saboteurs are now in majority control of all three branches of our government. They are hell-bent on permanently imposing their Communist/Socialist ways on America.
The classic way for a tyranny to seize more power is to generate a crisis, promote public fear, and then to present itself as the solution - provided the people cede still more of their freedoms. 'What crisis?' you may ask. They are legion: The Bailouts, TARP, Universal Health Care, Cap & Trade, etc etc are huge deficit-generators designed to topple America's world-dominating economic engine. Debasement of the US Dollar by the 0bama administration (via monetizing its huge, and ever-growing deficits) will precipitate an economic holocaust that will require an "International" (UN) solution. One World Government and New World Order are more than just conspiracy theories: When the facts are all laid out, they point in only one direction - unending tyranny.
The America of the Founders is under attack from all points, yet everyone is telling me to either:
'Do nothing about it because there is nothing that any one can do,' or, 'Never Mind, it's only Politics As Usual... Nothing to see here, just move along.'
That general attitude is what has brought us all to this critical point in our nation's history. I may be 70 years old, but it's never too late to die for one's country. I owe that to all those that fought and died for me. In their millions, they died for you, too.
My use of the term Whores here is inaccurate, I know, but I think it a descriptive and universally understood metaphor in the context of such a depraved and wanton group of so-called "leaders" in our Government. The only bloodless way to refound America is to vote at least 90% of the Incumbent Whores (Democrat and Republican alike) out of office in 2010 and 2012. Let each of us then become as an electoral Jack the Ripper in the nations voting booths.
