Those in Their Left Mind
By Tammy Derouin
What will be the last straw for Americans?  Are we actually going to wait until the president takes full control of our government?  Maybe it will be the switch from president to dictator or a Constitution burning ceremony. Will that wake people out of their sugar induced coma?  Just before the final blow, the sugar drip will be turned up, ensuring smiles and applause.
Harry Reid and the president’s progressive minions are making us all obsolete.  The “nuclear option” they voted in will ensure the ruling party gets everything it wants.  Our system of government was designed to give balance.  Mr. Reid, Obama and so many other Democrats were deeply opposed to this very option when it was the Republicans who wanted to prevent the minority party from being heard.  It was wrong then and it is wrong now.
The president’s approval rating has dropped but not nearly enough.  Who in their right mind still believes the president is doing a good job?  I just answered my own question, those in their “left” mind.  This is all done by design.  It’s one more step to fundamentally transform America.  Majority rule will ensure progressive judges will be in place to interpret progressive law. 
The Obama administration has been caught lying once again. It’s time to distract the Americans.  Let the show begin.  First, blame and point fingers.   After all, a reason is needed to bring the smoke and mirrors back on stage.  Wave the magic wand and POOF, something else has disappeared.  If only it were your watch.  A watch, unlike freedom, is easily replaced.  
We won’t accept lies from our family and friends, yet we lap them up and beg for more from our government.  The government has handed out so many boxes of chocolates in hopes they can fool us into believing they haven’t done anything wrong.  If you question their behavior, a story is all ready for you.  They are masters of trickery.  They will spin it and even convince you they are doing it for your own good.  Trust them, they know what’s best.
Overloading the system will cause our government to collapse.  The progressives are well versed in the Cloward and Piven theory.  It’s the only way they can re-mold the system to their desired dream.  It’s happening before our very eyes.  They are overloading the system by creating endless entitlements, something for nothing.
Someone will ultimately pay for your benefit.  One person’s food stamps will come at the expense of someone else’s paycheck.  One person’s free Obama phone comes at the expense of higher rates for others.  Government bailouts and subsidies come at the expense of taxpayers.   Government interference in the free market system comes at the expense of our way of life.  Voting in majority rule comes at the expense of our system of government and eventually our freedom. 
A limited government is absolutely necessary for a free and prosperous nation.  American history shows that the people of the United States have been very successful and prosperous because of our exceptional existence.  We are exceptional because we are free.
The Constitution chains the government down.  Freedom requires accountability and a lot of hard work.  If it were easy, we wouldn’t be exceptional.
Progressives want everyone to be financially equal, meaning poor, with the government handing out benefits, playing god.  This is a global dream as well.  Our government needs to lower our standards to bring us in line with the rest of the world.  This produces a two class system, the elite and the poor. 
Progressives have control of the Executive Branch.  The Legislative Branch has become blurred as the president has overreached to mandate law without any consequences.  Now the Senate has voted that a simple majority will confirm judicial nominations.  That’s all three branches, America.
The problem has been created.  It’s only a matter of time before our government collapses.  The answer has already been formulated.  All they are waiting for is the frustration level to reach its peak causing panic and unrest.  Once the people cry out for help, they will swoop in with the solution to the problem; the problem which they created.  The solution will be neatly wrapped in red, white and blue.  This is done by design to make the final power seizing blow, appear welcomed. 
Giving things away produces loyalty.  It usually guarantees a vote but once you make yourself obsolete, the government no longer needs you.  The benefit to those who receive the free goods and services is short lived. The ultimate price is everyone’s freedom.
“I am also aware the Founding Fathers established the filibuster as a means of protecting the minority from the tyranny of the majority, and that protection, with some changes, has been in place for over 200 years.”

Evil Is Evil
By Tammy Derouin
America no longer sets the standard for the world to follow.  There was a time when we defended the weak, stood by our allies, sent aid to those in need and provided shelter to those fleeing oppression.  We’ve destroyed our moral compass causing us to wander aimlessly with no sense of direction.  We wait to be led, thereby giving up control and freedom.   
Vladimir Putin and Russia appear to have taken the lead role on the world stage.  France is the only country willing to question the nuclear intentions of Iran.  The world no longer respects the United States.  The Middle East, the land of our enemies, no longer fears our presence.  Our reaction to world events is no longer predictable.  We’ve surrendered the soul of our nation to evil.  We’ve become weak and quite frankly, it’s pathetic. 
Back when America was strong and Americans were free, we not only stood for what was right, we announced it to the world.  We actually knew who our enemies were, and get this; we confronted and fought them when necessary.  What a novel concept; identified, confronted and vilify ones enemies. 
I recently watched music videos from a bye-gone area.  Back when artists could think for themselves, they told a story as they wished to tell it.  Freedom of speech wasn’t limited to the agenda of the ruling party.   They choreographed words and music with a visual theme that became a music video.  Sometimes creativity spawned love of country or pride in the American way of life.  A video could illustrate struggles that we’ve overcome as well as the pride and courage it took to achieve the desired goal.  The United States was a friend to those who valued individual freedom and foe to those who wished to oppress others.  We didn’t hide our convictions.  We knew where we stood.  Our enemies knew if they pushed us, there would be consequences.
I can’t even begin to imagine the consequences of a video where our present day enemies are depicted as our enemies.  I think the American people know who they are but the federal government refuses to acknowledge them.  Can you imagine the backlash of even hinting that a radical Islamic group or individual could be the “bad guy” in a video?  Our president might get a nasty note about racist American citizens openly using their freedoms as guaranteed in our Bill of Rights.  He might even feel pressure to apologize for our freedoms and blame a video for insighting violence in a country on the other side of the...  Oh wait, that actually happened.
We knew Hitler was our enemy during WW II.  What if the government would have thought it insensitive to depict Nazis as just misguided individuals who didn’t get enough hugs or some ridiculous thing?  What if members of the Nazi Party began to visit the White House as guests while we were fighting them in Europe?  What if they began to appear on the president’s staff?  How about letting them change our training manuals, the ones American troops use for fighting the Nazis?  What if our troops were denied their weapons in the presence of other Nazis, because we wouldn’t want to appear intimidating?  The list goes on.  It’s really quite incriminating.  All you need to do is look at what our president has done with our current enemies and apply it to history.  I wonder, what would have happened?  
Evil is evil.  Our government refuses to identify it.  Apparently we don’t have any enemies because terrorism doesn’t exist.  If we don’t recognize terrorism, the easier it will be for our enemies to make sure Israel doesn’t exist. 
If we, as a nation don’t stop this political correct nonsense and call our enemy our enemy, we will be destroyed.  We will be destroyed from within.  The seeds have not only been planted, they have taken root. 
We have allowed fear of our own government to control our logic and common sense.  Our press is terrified and too weak to report the real news.  Our entertainment industry is falling in lock-step with the president.  Story lines will validate the ruling party and its propaganda. If we really have become a socialist country, the next logical step is communism.
The most evil and ruthless rulers used fear to gain control.  They also knew they had to disarm the people.  The Nazis promised to protect the Jewish population and we know how that ended; that is, if you believe the holocaust took place.  Our president has turned his back on Israel. He’s friendly or non-aggressive with those who question the holocaust as well as those who openly call for the destruction of Israel and the United States.

Friend or Foe
By Tammy Derouin
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”  Declaration of Independence
We are in dire need of new guards for our future security but we don’t need a revolution.  Our Constitution provides us with the answers and the ability to limit the power of our government. The colonist had no choice.  They had to fight for their independence.  Their sacrifice continues to give us our freedom, but only if we protect it.
We are at a crossroads.  If we don’t enforce our Constitution, it will cease to exist.  All those little things like freedom of speech, press, religion, the right to bear arms, to be secure in your home, protected from unreasonable searches and seizures, held without being charged, trial by jury, to not be deprived of liberty without due process, among many others, will be gone.  We have already allowed our government to infringe on the majority of our rights, out of fear.  Our rights are not as secure as many would believe. 
Fear is a powerful weapon.  When a government wants complete control, it will use fear to push the people into submission.  It will tighten its grip until your existence is at the mercy of those in power.  When daily needs and necessities become benefits from the government, the government is all powerful.
Once the colonists declared their independence, they no longer had the resources of the British Empire. But even when they did, they were slaves to the crown.  The elite class was in control.  Privileges and benefits came from the top, down.  The government endowed the people with rights.  What the government gives, the government can and will take away.
“The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpation, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.”  Declaration of Independence
Man was not meant to be enslaved.  If slavery is so bad, why are so many Americans chaining themselves to the government?  Why does the government use the weak and the poor as their billboard?   If the government doesn’t have a population that is dependent upon it, the government doesn’t have a way of controlling your life.
The more we feed the government, the more powerful it becomes.  Stop feeding the beast!  The government has convinced so many Americans that they can’t make it without government assistance.  The president has already stated, “You didn’t build that.” 
The progressives have been planting entitlement seeds for over 100 years.  The time-proven adage that you reap what you sow, has been producing feeble crops.  After so many entitlement seeds have taken root, I’m really curious as to who’s going to do the harvesting.  The hands are out but so few are willing to do the work.
“To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.”  Declaration of Independence
Facts were submitted as proof to the world that their declaration was not an impulsive move.  Twenty-seven pieces of evidence were submitted.  I’d be willing to bet there were many more that didn’t make the final cut.  They had to draw a line and determine what was most important to grab the attention of the world.
What does the world see today?  They see the once strongest nation in the world bowing to its enemies. Those that openly want America destroyed are being welcomed into the White House and into the administration.  Long-time allies have been betrayed.  Secret and sensitive information about our once trusted allies has been shared with our once mutual enemies.  Our allies have been subjected to invasion of privacy.   If the American people are no longer trusted, why would the government trust our allies?  Surveillance and wiretapping are among the intrusive types of behavior, by our government.  American citizens and American allies are equally treated as enemies.
What happens when America begins to collapse at the hands of our “new allies” aka, former enemies?  Will our former allies see us as friend or foe? 
What happens when Americans can no longer trust the government?  What happens when the president can look directly at the American people and lie repeatedly on any issue?  What happens when one person or party usurps power illegally?  What will happen if we continue to ignore the betrayal of our government? 
 Seventy percent of Americans don’t know the Constitution is the supreme law of the land.  I wonder what will happen. 
“In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms:  Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.”

Charlatan in Chief
By Tammy Derouin
While watching the news this past week, certain words kept coming to mind.  Lies and deceit were at the top followed by fraud, swindler and con artist.  The Obama administration didn’t disappoint when more evidence of corruption began to surface.  We were once again dazzled with the usual response of surprise, shock, finger pointing and blaming others.  It’s now seemingly effortless to redirect our attention from the facts.  Simply dangle a sucker in front of our noses.  How many times are we going to take the bait?  
The amount of deceit that has been perpetrated against the American people in the health care act alone should have brought this administration to its knees.  No, a scandal this large should have led to the exit of our Charlatan in Chief followed by most of Congress.  While crimes against our country by those in power continue to increase, the accountability and consequences decrease.
New York Magazine put together a video of President Obama lying to the American people regarding health care.  They captured him stating twenty-three times that those who liked their doctor or their current health care plan could keep it.  Now we are learning the Obama administration knew at least three years ago, that anywhere from 40 to 67 percent of those who have individual health insurance would be dropped.  Their plan wasn’t going to meet the requirements of Obamacare.   
The administration is forcing Americans to make a purchase or suffer the consequences.  Now we are being told that even if we currently have what the government is forcing us to purchase, it doesn’t meet the standards as determined by the government.  The administration is assuring us that replacement plans will offer much better coverage.  Now there’s a pill as large as the actual law.  Government subsidies will be available because the cost of health insurance has sky-rocketed.  Now who said the cost of something would necessarily sky-rocket under his plan?  Oh yeah, Obama said that about the cost of electricity.  Your bills have gone up, right?  Well, he didn’t lie about that one. 
Government subsidies will help individuals pay for the over-priced product they are being forced to purchase.  Here’s the problem, the government gets its money from the tax-paying population.  The tax-paying population is dwindling as more Americans are receiving government assistance.  The more the government takes, the fewer tax-payers there are to pillage.  Eventually, the tax-payers will have nothing more to give.  The government will collapse because the government doesn’t make money, it spends money.
All the underhanded details of how the government is going to control your life are available in the Affordable Health Care Act.  The approximate 2,000 page law that was rushed through Congress, you know, the one we had to pass to see what was in it.  Aren’t new discoveries fun?  Stay tuned, as we will soon discover the law is about control, not your health.
It didn’t take Obama long to blame the insurance companies for dropping millions of Americans.  It was spelled out in his law and he knew it.  In true Obama form, he acts shocked, states he is unaware and then blames someone else. Equally disturbing is his lack of knowledge, or so he would have us believe.  How many times has he said he didn’t know, he was unaware or he found out about it just like everyone else, by watching the news?  The latter only implicates him more because he controls the news.
Why are we so surprised?  We have been lied to by the Obama administration from the beginning.  We accept the lies even when the evidence is right in front of us.  We ignored the truth when we were told exactly what he was going to do, fundamentally transform America.
I did a search using “list of Obama’s lies,” WOW!  It’s overwhelming to see them all listed in black and white.  Truth is stranger than fiction but he’s turning fiction into truth.  Michelle Obama said, “We’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”  A promise you can take to the bank, just do it before it collapses.
The biggest lie of them all was when he said, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” 
When all the lies have become truth and the transformation is complete, whose fault will it be in the end?  It will be ours, for willingly accepting the sucker. 
“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, selfappointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
James Madison
