It Took a Carter to Get a Reagan

Monday, March 22, 2010

There must be a silver lining to this complete power usurpation by the Democrats with the socialist health care takeover.    Blatantly ignoring the will of the people, Obama twisted arms and lied his way into convincing his party members to vote his way and virtually alter the United States of America.  Stupak literally sold his soul to the devil along with the others based on a promise and an executive order that can be overturned at any whim.

But history shows we had to endure Jimmy Carter’s term and that incompetence in order for us to be ready to support Ronald Reagan, the greatest President of our generation.

Maybe this Obama nightmare will be the same.  My hope is that the people of this nation return to their values and foundation (the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence) and vote in 2010 and 2012 in such huge numbers throwing out the socialist Democrats on their heels.   We also can’t forget Olympia Snowe whose liberalism allowed this debacle to get this far.  Enough is enough.

The silver lining is that once official, this health care legislation can hopefully be tied up in court as unConstitutional.  Then we vote them out in a resounding turnout.   The Obama administration will be a huge abject failure.

This administration may have done in two years what Conservatives have been trying to accomplish in a decade or more:  returning the nation to its conservative roots.  The ideals of limited government, the sovereignty of each citizen,  the Rule of Law,  our inalienable rights, our Liberty and Freedom, the free market principles,  are back in vogue and should remain.   These principles don’t go out of style.   Indeed, this is the only recipe for a free and prosperous nation.

In fact, at our local Barnes and Noble, “Common Sense” by Thomas Paine was sold out – according to the clerk, it seems there has been a run on them lately and they can’t keep enough in stock.  That is good news!

In addition, I attended a seminar on this past beautiful sunny Saturday in a church meeting room in Escondido hosted by North County Conservatives and given by Joseph Andrews of the Center for Teaching the Constitution.   There were over 220 people there – just regular folks wanting to take their country back and equipping themselves with the knowledge and truths of the founding documents. Most impressive of all was observing the many young people who attended and were fully engaged.  That is awesome.

While we have not identified the next Ronald Reagan in our midst, we now realize that we cannot put our ‘hope’ and trust in a president or a party or a court.  Our Hope must be in God and the power is in the people.

Now it is time for the people to make a difference for our nation and be heard on election day 2010 and 2012!  I can’t wait because the shock will be heard around the world!

    We may have endured Jimmy Carter but, will we survive Barrackula HUSSEIN NObama? And never forget that middle name. It says a lot.

  2. American Vet says:

    Thank God the light of Truth is starting to shine. The people need a revolution at the ballot box in November 2010!

  3. SD Patriot says:

    The Radical Left is very nervous – you can see it on Nancy’s face every time she speaks. This American Revolution is sweeping across our nation like a hurricane. That is why they are desperately ramming through their illegal Bills. This is exactly what King George did 240 years ago and we all know what happened next.

    God Bless the American Patriots who will save this nation from ruin!

    From your keyboard to God’s ears.
    With the TARP program, the Obama nationalization of the auto industry, and now the nationalization of healthcare (taxes commence now, benefits in 4 years… isn’t that fraud?) we have witnessed the biggest confiscation of property and liberty in the history of our Country.

    Up next: A Student Loan program from the Feds that rewards public employment and punishes private sector jobs for college grads.

    How’s that “Hope and Change” workin’ out for ya?

  5. Donald Burgett says:

    My only hope is that the 30 second sound bite, two week before an election mentality doesn’t take over and the public forgets what has just taken place. Somehow those of us that see the damage that has been done will keep up the fight. We must keep this in the public eye until November this year and beyond until 2012. Our only salvation is to gain a majority and a President that will sign on to repeal this bill.

  6. Michael A. Schwartz says:

    I would give them Reagan if they take back Obama and Carter and settle for a couple terms of Van Buren.

  7. Tops says:

    Oh how I wish we had Reagan again!

  9. Marie,
    I hope you are right because the only other option is too terrible to consider, Civil War!!

    I see the storm clouds coming and all I can do is get ready for the “Big Storm”.

    Good luck to all of us!!

    We need someone that has some common sense, not an idiot that just wants to better their own agenda, and make themselves great, don’t they realize they are supposed to be serving us. ? Obviously not.

  11. No member of any party owes that party any further loyalty if that party’s members have voted to violate the US Constitution.

    Democrats and Republicans, we do not owe any party, any government, or any politician any loyalty if they have actively worked against the laws in our Constitution.

    The danger in the Democrat party is the radicals from the 60s who decided that the US is the worst country on the planet, and set out to remove us from the planet.

    As long as the progressives run the Democrat party, no one should ever vote for a democrat again…until they clean the anti-Americans out of their party.

    As for the Republican Party, check the record of any candidate in the party. If they’ve voted for a democrat or for democrat causes, when perfectly good Republicans and Republican causes could have been supported, then withhold your vote from them.

    Find a good conservative candidate and issues to support. And if you cannot find a good conservative candidate to support, then run for office yourself.

    They have drawn a line in the sand. However, we have the right to ignore their line and draw our own.

    And here’s mine…if you personally work to undermine my country and it’s original intent from our Founders, I will actively work to make sure you are not elected, and your issues are defeated before they ever get on the ballot.

    USA all the way. America – love it or leave it. Proud to be an American.

    Any way you want to say it, stand by our Country. She needs every patriot she can get right now.

    Let that patriot be you.

  12. Joined my national Tea Party….getting active politically while I still have a voice! I have found a political online community site that allows everyone to fax Senators for free. If you are involved in that kind of thing…check it out at http://AmericanVoice.Com.! Also great site I will come back!
