Not Afraid? You Will Be.

The facts are piling up faster than manure on a cattle ranch. If you're not worried, frightened, disgusted, or just plain ol' concerned about what our 44th President is doing, saying and planning, you must be living in a different world than the rest of us.

Here are three must reads. You be the judge.

Liberal Hypocricy Once Again

While our sympathies go out to the Kennedy family over Sen. Ted Kennedy's death last night, the whole affair again points to liberal hypocrisy.

Back in March, Rush Limbaugh made the comment that the national heath care bill would eventually be named for Ted Kennedy. He caught all kinds of flack -- from Democrats and liberals -- for his comment.

For example, the executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee called Limbaugh's comments about Sen. Kennedy "truly outrageous." "“Leader Limbaugh crossed the line. National Republicans must stand up to their leader, Rush Limbaugh, and tell him that enough is enough.”

Yet now, after the Senator's death, Democrats are tripping all over themselves to name the bill in honor of Kennedy.

If a conservative suggests something, it's a horrendous deed; if a liberal suggests the same thing, it's just great.

If you don't see the hypocrisy, you're not living on the same planet. It is one of the reasons debating a liberal is just about impossible.

Hopeful signs are emerging

Both parties -- Democrats and Republicans -- have failed. Both are to blame for the problems we have, and both don't have real solutions. Our government has failed us. Politians are only interested in keeping and exercising power, and for decades have done nothing constructive, except dig us deeper into an already deep hole.

When George Washington stated "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master," he was right.

When Ronald Reagan said that government was the problem, not the solution, he was right. When Thomas Paine said "Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one," he was right.

Thomas Jefferson judged government correctly:

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.

Have we lost our way? This nation was founded on the principal that excessive government was tyranny, and what we have today is quickly approaching that condition, if it is not already here.

The Constitution of the United States states that any powers not specifically granted to the Federal government are to be granted to the States and Local governments! Much of what our Federal government in Washington has done over the last several decades is unconstitutional, yet the Supreme Court has gone along with this takeover.

The 10th Amendment:

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.

Now we are seeing how our Republic works. If the people think the Federal government is taking too much power, we resist. This is not un-American, as Nancy Pelosi would have you believe. As one resident of San Franciso (Pelosi's home turf) said in a comment on

I've been a Democrat since I came back from the War in 1968. Let me get this straight: When I demonstrated in the street for Affirmative Action, Womens Lib and Gay rights, I was being Patriotic. But if you demonstrate in the street against secret legislation not open to the public for discussion, you are Unamerican? What am I missing here? Obama declared August 1st as being: "The People's Deadline" for passing Healthcare that the Congress hadn't even read yet and the public didn't have any details about. He was acting and sounding just like Fidel Castro, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse Tung. All those enlightened 20th Century Progressive Dictators were always spouting off about "The People's This & The People's That".
I'm a Liberal Democrat, but this guy is a buffoon. POWER TO THE PEOPLE-EVEN THE REPUBLICANS!

Read more comments at the SFGate. I think you'll find the comments from this liberal bastion interesting.

I see a glimmer of hope that the American people will not let the Federal government become the tyranny our founders feared so much.
