Connect the Dots – Your Freedom has been Hijacked!

So here we are; today we are on the verge of the “fundamental transformation of America”. America is being stolen from its’ citizens and most remain unaware of the magnitude of what is happening. While many worry about how they are doing in their NCAA basketball pool or how they will spend their Sunday afternoon, the U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote on a healthcare reform bill which will alter the course of life in America.

If you still do not believe that the scope of this bill has this much impact on our country let me connect the dots for you. Since the election of President Obama the following things have happened:

  • We allowed the passage of a $787B economic stimulus bill. This bill according to the administration would ensure that unemployment would stay below 8%. Since the bill passed unemployment has been well north of 9% and above 10% at times. Worse yet most of the money has been wasted on meaningless projects.
  • The federal government has taken over two-thirds of the domestic auto industry and then wasted billions of taxpayer dollars on the phony “Cash for Clunkers” auto stimulus plan that had more benefit for foreign automakers than the domestic ones.
  • The T.A.R.P. program passed at the end of the Bush administration was the first step in nationalizing the domestic banking system. Now the government is regulating all manner of financial transactions under the guise of protecting consumers. A big part of the original meltdown was the government’s excessive involvement in the housing market through Fannie and Freddie. Have they learned their lessons after that train wreck? No! Instead they are busy trying to reinflate the housing market.
  • Using the EPA the government has declared cabon dioxide a harmful gas and is on the path of regulating energy and the environment without regulation to further its’ agenda – bigger, more controlling government.
  • The FCC is working on a bailout plan for the mainstream media as well as regulations to destroy free speech. Clearly in their sights – the internet and conservative talk radio.
  • Recently the President signed a land grab order.  Using the “1906 Antiquities Act” he ordered the federalization of 10 million acres of land in the west. This land grab will inhibit our ability to gain energy independence by cutting off access to needed resources.
  • The President continues his focus on “climate change” and “Cap & Trade” rather than job creation and economic growth. Instead the Congress keeps upping the ante on entitlements such as free healthcare, education and extending of unemployment benefits. Today the the national debt stands at $12.6 trillion. The ratio of debt to GDP  is now 88.1%. Our interest on the debt is accumulating at rate of $191 billion per year against revenue of $2.2 trillion per year. Revenue won’t grow unless employment increases. There are officially 14.9 million people unemployed. The actual number of unemployed is 26.1 million. Over 39 million of our citizens are now on food stamps.
  • Moody’s has repeatedly warned the government for the past 18 months that if we don’t reduce the debt and curtail government spending we will lose our national AAA credit rating. This will cause our interest rates to sky rocket and eventually our interst srevice of the debt will bankrupt the country. Yet the spending continues to increase. Our current entitlements (Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, Federal Pensions) plus the interest on the debt now exceeds $1.9 trillion per year. This is unsustainable and will destroy our economy sooner than later.
  • Today, the House will vote on Healthcare Reform and higher education funding. In effect this bill will broaden the federal government’s control over both. More unfunded spending liabilities and government mandates will be the result. Education and Healthcare are not rights! Rights come from God not governments.  This bill also includes the funding to hire 16,000 new IRS agents to aid in the enforcement of the new laws. (Jobs by the way that are funded by taxes and do not create new revenue)

So America, can you connect the dots? In just 18 months we have watched the tightening of federal controls on states and citizens that is unprecedented in American history. Our freedom and our liberty is being usurped by an over reaching federal bureauracy that has put us on a fast track to socialism or maybe even communism.

The federal government has taken almost complete control of: our banks, Wall Street, the media, transportation (the car companies), the environment/energy (via the EPA), housing, higher education and now maybe healthcare. You should be livid or at the very least scared to death.  We are a few short steps away from a European socialist government. But this government will be unsustainable because it will result in bankruptcy.

However, before that happens we will slip into a nasty decline that will destroy the fabric of the greatest country in the history of the world. At the end of this ride will be the need for a “global solution” because most of Europe will join us in bankruptcy. The answer will be what the global elites have wanted all along… A global government that decides how much freedom and what liberties we can enjoy. Conspiracy theory, you say? That could never happen, you say?

Really? If anyone had told you in January of 2008 that we would be where we are today, would you have believed them? We are running out of time! Connect the dots… the federal government and the Progressives who are running it are hijacking your freedom! Wake up, Act Now! We are at the edge of the cliff but there is still time to save the Republic if we organize to take the country back. This can not be done without pain or sacrifice.

It is time to face the truth. The only way out of the mess we are in is to cut – spending and taxes – a lot! We have built a model that is unsustainable. We have to come to grips with the idea that big government is not the answer – it is the problem. I am not just talking about the federal government either.

  • The federal government will have to reduce its’ services to only those which are essential – national defense, infra structure and basic services. Social programs and luxury pork barrel spending must be eliminated.
  •  State governments must get smaller too. States need to narrow their focus to the basic services they should provide.
  • We are going to have to rely on communities to pull together and help their own. People are going to have to learn to fend for themselves. Everyone is going to have to sacrifice to fix this problem.
  • Each citizen must be allowed to keep as much as possible so they can reinvest in their savings, communities and build business that will restart the economy.

This is the only sane road back to prosperity. The alternatives involve deals with the devil which will lead us to a loss of sovereignty, a world government or some form of socialistic government where we can all live together as peasants.

Again I will include the famous speech by Ronald Reagan warning about the situation we find ourselves in:

A Time for Choosing

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free”. – Ronald Reagan

Restore the Republic, Reject the Agenda of the Progressive Left!
