The Cost of Freedom

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.-That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, -That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

The Obama administration has increased our national debt more than all past presidents combined. The reversal of the debt to equity ratio has resulted in (1) China selling U.S. Treasury bonds in OTC markets; (2) the U.S. dollar at new lows against all major currencies; (3) Social Security hemorrhaging red for the first time since its inception; (4) the IMF now calling for the replacement of the U.S. dollar, as the world reserve currency; (5) the Federal Reserve buying back unsold Treasury bonds at every bond auction; and (6) most, importantly, our balance of trade at the worst negative balance in history.
In our homeland, current projections show that most Americans will outlive their savings, because of the rising cost of living. Although politicians pay themselves and government employees better than the salaries of those paying their undeserved salaries and benefits – the American taxpayer, they fail to effectively address the vital economic issues that have resulted from the violation of the original intention of the Constitution. Responsible are the voters who vote for those who ignore every tenet expressed in the Preamble to “the supreme law of the land”. How long is going to take a public, satiated by the highest standard of living the world has ever known, while wasting and destroying the heritage paid for by those before them with blood and sacrifice, to understand that freedom is never free? The blessings of “liberty and justice for all” are being denied our children while we are consuming ourselves with multiple addictions and wasting the blessings heretofore afforded by this “one Nation under God” on various entertainments and self indulgences.
Tolerating the greed and avarice of the impersonal and presumed unaccountable, out of control bureaucracies from governments to union leaders oblivious to the plight of the rank and file to the corporate boardrooms sustained by misguided cronies in place only to perpetuate the injustices heaped on stockholders and workers, Americans pay the price in lost jobs, at the grocery, and in everything they work for. Where is the next Washington or Lincoln? Most certainly, we need a leader not experienced in the political brokenness that has brought us to this brink of economic disaster. We need a leader versed in the truths imbedded in the Constitution – a person of wisdom guided only by the truths of science and history! We are at war!
Perhaps the next time the vast majority of Americans spend their hard earned, well deserved dollars, they might reflect on the following:
The dollar you spend to provide food for your family has decreased in value well over 60%. Whether in the container holding less or costs going up, or taxes to government at every level, the American citizen is being decimated by bureaucratic injustice. Now is the time!
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.-That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, -That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

IT SEEMS THERE HAS BEEN A LITTLE CONFUSION ABOUT OBAMA’S TAKING CREDIT FOR A RECENT HAPPENING. THE FOLLOWING WILL EXPLAIN:

“Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonalds and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. It’s the guy cooking the burger that should get the credit, not the clown.”

How to Get An ObamaCare Waiver

A helpful guide to health care independence.


People around the country were excited to learn that our benevolent masters in the Obama Administration chose to grant another two hundred indulgences from the ObamaCare disaster last month. It’s strange that the Department of Health and Human Services chose to post the names of the latest lucky winners without making a big announcement. They just kind of tossed the list on their website and hoped no one would notice it. Of course, conservative bloggers found it right away. We love to celebrate the good fortune of others.

The royal court has now issued 1,372 exemptions from ObamaCare. You may be asking yourself: “How can I get one of these valuable waivers?” Based on the waivers granted thus far, I’ve prepared this helpful guide.

1. Join a labor union: The waiver list reads like a “who’s who” of Big Labor organizations. Membership in a huge collectivist organization that owns a big chunk of the Democrat Party is a great way to escape the crushing burden of ObamaCare. The President isn’t foolish enough to subject his most valued political allies to his “brilliant” health care reforms!

2. Work for a huge corporation: Jack-in-the-Box, Cracker Barrel, Ruby Tuesday’s, Waffle House… these are among the most recognizable names of corporate waiver winners. Who would have guessed that restaurant chains were so much more competent to manage their own health care plans than the rest of America? Many other waiver recipients are industrial concerns with thousands of employees. Relief from ObamaCare’s staggering costs will provide them with a competitive advantage worth millions. Small businesses are for chumps!

3. Work for a health care company: Quite a few of these exemptions go to the health care industry and pharmaceutical companies. Remember the mid-90s, when drug companies were hives of malevolent evil, denounced repeatedly by Hillary Clinton – who felt so badly about her previous association with these villains that she short-sold her pharmaceutical stocks? Well, forget about all that. The past is a strange place, and we cannot live there.

4. Work for the government: State and local governments get plenty of ObamaCare waivers. You’re in luck – they’re always expanding, even during brutal recessions with high private-sector unemployment. Meanwhile, back in December, the Obama Administration declared it would ignore legislation designed to force Congressional representatives and their staff to live under ObamaCare, until the big state-run health care exchanges are up and running in 2014. If you were smart enough to join the ruling class, you’d have your waiver already!

5. Open a luxurious boutique in Nancy Pelosi’s district: Fully 20% of the latest ObamaCare waivers go to luxury businesses that happen to be located in the district represented by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Among the favored enterprises are Parisian cafés good enough to catch the discriminating eye of an International Monetary Fund honcho, and restaurants that sell $59 porterhouse steaks. You can escape from ObamaCare without compromising your fabulous lifestyle, provided you have the right political representation.

6. Live in Nevada, New Hampshire, or Maine: These three wonderful states have been granted special exemptions from many of ObamaCare’s provisions. The waiver for Harry Reid’s Nevada just came through this week. It was granted because treating them like one of the lesser 47 states “may lead to the destabilization of the individual market,” according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Enjoy your ObamaCare disaster, un-favored states!

I hope this guide proves useful in your quest to maintain some semblance of individual liberty and quality health care. Good luck!

In short, be a corrupt hypocrite.
