What is Happening with The Government Shutdown
I called it and it happened but anyone who has watched this administration knew the first line of action is always "Make it Hurt The People" just as was stated by our "Commander & Chief" during the Sequester. The National Park Service says, even though they had people to keep parks and monuments open, the Obama administration ordered closure of World War II Memorial and others; but he makes military golf course which he likes to stay open. This is President Obama throwing a temper tantrum again and his first course of action is to cause the people as much pain as possible but it better not hurt him; does this surprise you? It doesn't me because it just proves what I knew from day one; President Obama, as his actions show he doesn't care about the little guy and he is the worse president we have ever had, to achieve this status with Nixon and Carter out there really took a lot of work.
President Obama says he is willing to negotiate with the house but only after he gets everything he wants; that isn't negotiations. I keep hearing that Obamacare is the law and must be funded; didn't the Democrats defund the Border Fence which was a law and then said it was completed; it wasn't? One better then that is according to the US Constitution a law cannot be changed without going back through Congress and this "Law" has been changed more then 20 times; it isn't even the original law which was passed. In the case Clinton v. City of New York, the Supreme Court found the Line Item Veto Act unconstitutional because it violated the Presentment clause. First, the procedure delegated legislative powers to the President, thereby violating the non-delegation doctrine. Second, the procedure violated the terms of Section Seven, which state, "if he approve [the bill] he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it." Thus, the President may sign the bill, veto it, or do nothing, but he may not change any part of a bill. The current version of the Obamacare Law is required by the US Constitution to go back through the Congress as a Bill to approve the 20 plus changes that President Obama has made.
Many of our representatives in Both Houses of the US Congress, Democrats and Republicans and their staff, have removed themselves from Obamacare knowing it is not constitutional and that the law is not good but still want us to be forced to except it. I have heard President Obama say he is trying to keep the rhetoric down, then Senate Majority Harry Reid lectures senate on civility; all either of these two men has done is raise the rhetoric and be uncivil so aren't they being the poster boys for hypocrisy, YES! (example 1), (example 2), (example 3), and (example 4), I could go on forever. These two on their own have spread more rhetoric, false statements, and false accusations then the rest of congress put together (with the possible exception of John McCain & Nancy Pelosi). I don't like Senator John Boehner, I think he is a weak leader but he seems to be the only one of this three ring circus being halfway civil.
I think instead of asking, " What is Happening with The Government Shutdown" we should ask, " What has Happened to the Government?" Our Founding Fathers who created the greatest nation on earth would be flabbergasted at what we changed and let it become. We have went from altruism, the principle or practice of unselfish concern for or devotion to the welfare of others to egoism, the habit of valuing everything only in reference to one's personal interest; selfishness the view that morality ultimately rests on self-interest. Many people refuse to work and want everything given to them, the biggest complaint I have seen on line about Obamacare is "you mean I have to pay for it?" When ever you give up your freedoms you pay in more ways then money. Benjamin Franklin once said "Any people that would give up liberty for a little temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety." This is what we have been doing for the last fifty years or so; giving up our freedoms. There has been good accomplished as well but we are dooming ourselves to slavery if we keep on the same course. When Obamacare came up for a vote we heard the most famous and dumbest quote ever given by a politician, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it." This should be a sign we have politicians in office that shouldn't be. As another of our Founding Fathers points out, Patrick Henry, "The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them." This whole bill and its ramifications were concealed from the public and the opposition party to it until it was time to vote; this is political malpractice. Samuel Adams said "Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt." I believe our Founding Fathers were much smarter and cared more about our country and it's people then any of our current politicians and as I always say, "Don't believe what any politician says, watch their actions to find their true allegiance."
I think it is unpatriotic to not pay what you owe, if you charge it you need to pay for it. I agree with what President Obama says on the first part of this tape but the second part shows you his actions which in most cases could be applied to every member in congress; him along with most of our congress are hypocrites! Senator John McCain shows you the same thing, he along with most politicians says what ever they can to get elected and unfortunately most citizens take our politicians at their word, blasts the other side for pointing out their hypocrisy, and never checks the facts. If you as a politician from their side or a citizen don't go along with the parties talking points, they threaten you or use government agencies to go after you; just ask the Democratic Senator Max Baucus tells Sec. Kathleen Sebelius that Obamacare is heading for a "Huge Train Wreck" (April 17, 2013) and then is forced to backtrack by his party or he will loose all support; he was ostracized for telling the truth. "In politics, as in religion, it is equally absurd to aim at making proselytes by fire and sword. Heresies in either can rarely be cured by persecution." Alexander Hamilton. Almost all our elected officials think they are wiser then our founding fathers and in most cases they are very wrong. Thomas Paine had two saying which our politicians really need to take to heart, "He who dares not offend cannot be honest" and "Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it." Almost all of our politicians and few of the people receiving entitlements have never sacrificed anything in their life for this country; they only care about what they can get, it be personal or political. The biggest enabler of the deceitfulness and lies to our citizens is the media and their political agenda.
As a much more obscured founding father George Clymer said, "A printer publishes a lie: for which he ought to stand in the pillory, for the people believe in and act upon it." What he is saying is when the media purposefully lies (which is most the time these days), they should be publically punished. In this video the media is caught staging and lying to "We The People." The media refuses to cover the true devastation Obamacare is causing, Walgreen figured out how to reduces cost for themselves but not their employee, ObamaCare Is Forcing Utah School Districts to reduce teachers hours (good job unions protecting your teachers), and President Obama says 30 hour work (1:07) week as full time (not if you have bills to pay.) "A fondness for power is implanted, in most men, and it is natural to abuse it, when acquired." I think Alexander Hamilton hit the nail on the head when thinking about our congress and oval office. He sent us a warning as well about foreign influence which were resoundingly present in the last two elections, "Foreign influence is truly the Grecian horse to a republic. We cannot be too careful to exclude its influence." A lot of money for the 2012 elections came from outside this country even though its illegal; our current politicians always fill they're above the law. I wish our politicians would abide by Samuel Adams' comments, "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!" If the left we would be better off with the ones who really did care for this country.
