So I was talking to my friend, Troy Fox, today about the situation with the governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich.  I think the whole thing is a mess and that surely with Chicago politics being what they are, Barack Obama had to at least have known about it.  And surely, Richard Daley, mayor of Chicago, had to have some involvement.  I mean, really, what goes on in that state that he doesn’t know about before hand?  Anyway, Troy shared with me his idea for Barack Obama’s senate replacement, and I thought it was fabulous!  Here goes: 

Everyone in the Democrat party is turning as fast as they can on Blagojevich.  Now, we’re used to this kind of behavior from the Republicans.  They turn on each other anytime something doesn’t look good.  But, Democrats, they’re so loyal.  But, no this time, and frankly it’s kind of enjoyable to watch them turn on each other.  Anyway, since everyone is turning on him and implicating him in any way they can, he should do the same.  He should hold a press conference, and have the feds waiting outside.  Then, he should announce that to replace Barack Obama, he is appointing the most conservative ultra right-wing republican he can.  (And if it’s a woman it’s even better.)  Then announce that his is resigning his office effective Jan 21, 2009.  After the press conference, he should go out and meet the feds and tell them everything he knows.  Troy’s thought here is that since they are all turning on him, he should do the same to them.  

Personally, I know this would never happen, but think about it for a moment.  How funny would that be?!  Can you imagine Harry Reid’s face?  Oh, I think I would pay to watch this all unfold!  The media would be in a panic.  They would be stumbling over their words.  The Democrat party would cry foul and whine, but there would be nothing they could do about it.  And, with them trying to get the fillibuster proof majority, this would be a big blow to them.  I think it would be pretty fabulous!  HA!!!

Yup, he said it!  Redistribution of wealth…spread the wealth around. 

The Warren Court wasn’t radical enough for him?  He thinks they should have done more?  Thank goodness they didn’t!

I want to share a fable with you, from Aseop. 

The Dog and The Wolf

    There one was a Wolf so skinny that he was nearly dead with hunger.  He met a Dog who lived in a house in town. 

    The Dog saw the Wolf was near death.  “Dear Wolf,” said the Dog, “your wild life will be the end of you.  Why not work as I do, and get your food given to you each day?”

    “I would be willing to try anything,” said the Wolf, “if I could just get a place to live and something to eat.”

    “I can take care of that for you,” said the Dog.  “Come with me to my master and you can share my work.” 

    As the Wolf and Dog made their way to the town, the Wolf saw that the hair on the Dog’s neck was worn very thin. 

    “Dear Dog,” said the Wolf.  “Why is the hair on your neck worn so thin that your skin shows?” 

    “Oh, it’s nothing.  Don’t worry about that,” said the Dog.  “That is just the place where my master puts the collar on my neck each night.  After supper, I am chained.  You will get used to it.” 

    “Is that what it costs to eat every day?” said the Wolf.  “Then good-bye, Friend Dog.  I would rather starve and be free.” 

 

Many people in this country are much like the Wolf at the beginning when he says, “I would be willing to try anything if I could just get a place to live and something to eat.”  We are tired of things the way they are and so we are looking for “change.”  But at what cost?  Anything?  Our freedom?  The Wolf learned, before it was too late.  But, sadly, I don’t think I can see the same for many of my fellow Americans.  Most people won’t figure it out until it is too late, and the “hair on their necks are worn so thin that their skin shows.” 

We are watching our freedoms slip slowly away, ever so slightly.  The Constitution is being disregarded at an alarming rate!  I hope people wake up before we are saying, “Oh, it’s nothing.  You will get used to it.”

 

I found this great article by David Limbaugh today about Obama.  Clearly Obama is a Socialist, as this other astue blogger points out.  Socialism is evil!  I just wish I could trust McCain not to go down the socialism road, too.  But, alas, I cannot.

OK, I was on board with McCain for a bit, after he picked Palin.  But, now she is becoming more and more like him.  While I still have hope that she would be good for the country, I don’t believe that I can support that ticket.  McCain just stands for too much that I disagree with.  For a time I was of the mindset that I had to do anything and everything I could to stop Obama.  I’ve struggled with this for a long time.  But, I now believe that I cannot in good conscience vote for McCain.  Obviously I won’t be voting for Obama.  So, the question then becomes, “What do I do?”  I believe that the best thing I can do is vote for a third party.  Some may say that this is a wasted vote, but I don’t think so.  After looking at and studying all the third party candidates, I have found one who echoes many of my beliefs:  Chuck Baldwin.  He is the Constitution Party candidate.  (In Nevada the Constitution Party is the Independent American Party.)  What it comes down to is that I believe that both Obama and McCain are going to bring more socialism and problems for our country.  Obama is open about it, but McCain is not.  In fact, if you look at his record, he has not supported the Constitution on many occasions.  I believe that he may have the same designs for our country as Obama, but is just trying to mask them.  Bottom line, I believe that they are both evil men.  I will post later about my reasoning for that.  Suffice it to say that I have learned more about McCain, and I don’t like it.  Incidentally, a friend of mine commented to me tonight that “McCain is the Harry Reid of the Republican Party.”  I agree.  I am also seriously considering switching my party registration. 

I need to vote for a good man, and one that upholds and honors the Constitution! 

Please visit my friend Mike’s blog to read a ton more about the Constitution, what Prophets have said, and Chuck Baldwin.

This group called the American Issues Project put out an ad exposing Barack Obama’s ties to William (Bill) Ayers, a know terrrorist.   In response to this ad, the Obama campaign is trying to prosecute the group.   Please check out this group’s website, and watch the ad and read the info on the Weather Underground (especially the timeline).   Then, as Mark Levin suggested, call the Obama campaign and ask them why he is friends with Bill Ayers.

More members of the House took to the floor today to talk to the American people about their energy bill.  While the hope is that Nancy Pelosi would be listening, I’m sure she’s turing a deaf ear to it all, too wrapped up in her book tour to worry about the energy crisis.  I was glad to see that two of Nevada’s Representatives were there, Dean Heller and Jon Porter.  Jon Porter spoke at a press conference today, also.  Too bad Shelley Berkley (Dem) is the Representative for my district.  (Hoping that will change come November.)  Anyway, I’m really glad to see these guys taking a stand!  I love it!  I hope they keep it up and don’t back down!
