The Gun To Our Heads….

I took the red pill...

The Monster is no longer angry; The Monster is resolved.

After 8 years of President Bush’s crazed leadership, the country has now elected another loser, and upgraded the type of firearm being held to the country’s proverbial head.  If every other American wants to close their eyes, put their hands in the air and believe that every gas tank is going to be full and every mortgage is going to be magically paid; go right ahead, this American born to immigrants, and a student of American History, is not going to be following the masses off that cliff.

I may be the voice in the wilderness, but I will not congratulate the President Elect on winning the election and the White House because I still believe in the American philosophy of “It is not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game”, and I believe that the corrupt Democratic Party has FINALLY beaten the corrupt Republican Party at it’s own “Rovian Game”, and taken the buying of an American Presidency to new levels.  I refuse to be gracious under these circumstances, and I would be a hypocrite if I did so.

I admit I am a hard sell.  In 1999, during the WTO Conference, I was working close to the hotel that the convention participants were staying at.  I was questioned by a co-worker when I was not fawning over the idea of having President Clinton so close by.  I was asked “Who would impress you?”  My reply?  “I would be impressed if Jesus Christ, Thomas Jefferson, or Ghandi walked through the door”.  I liked President Clinton, and I feel he was a good president, but fawn over someone that has to put his pants on one leg at a time just like everybody else?  Nope.  Look at each of our presidents and there is usually some type of scandal associated with their presidencies.  It is human nature to abuse power.  Our presidents are riding a breakneck, bucking, wild stallion and just trying to hold on for dear life, usually against an opposing Congress.  They are not creating anything like the above mentioned persons.

Once again, I will state what I have said numerous times:

America is a democratic, capitalist country and the barometer for its strength is not the size of it’s military, it is the condition of it’s economy; like it or not.

Our President is the most important CEO in the world, and looking back, I have yet to see one since the Founding Fathers who really understood that statement.  President Clinton came closest, but he gave us NAFTA, and look what that has done to our economy and job growth…

As for the President Elect, I will not be blackmailed into helping this Chicago politician in hopes he and the Dean/Pelosi/Dodd/Reid/Frank gang do not screw up our country anymore than it already is.  I will continue to support anyone that blocks his/their lunatic ideas to turn this country into a socialist one.  I am taking that gun away from my head and I suggest you do so as well.   I will not be blackmailed into supporting the “Progressive Socialist Party” that has taken control of the White House and the Congress.

If you are as resolved as I am and want to get involved, go here.

A few more tidbits to think about from one of the people who brought you the United States,

Thomas Jefferson:

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government

Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.

It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

Leave no authority existing not responsible to the people. (I Hope Dodd and Frank read this one.)

    The fight for Democracy and Liberty no longer involves the federal government, or anyone in it. The social contract has been violated. There is only one test remaining: what the Supreme Court will do if Pampers fails to respond to the Writ of Certioari issued by Justice Suiter’s clerk. He has until 1 December to submit his real birth certificate after which Philip Berg will respond. If Pampers fails to submit the proper documentation the Supreme Court must move to decertify the presidential election. If they don’t then as far as I am concerned the federal government will have invalidated itself completely. I wonder if groups like WAM are ready to take that stand. If not, then nothing is going to change.

    I’d be a lot happier if he were some sort of socialist but I think he’ll only use socialist/progresslve/liberal doctrines and ideas to line his own pockets and screw everyone else. He is NOT other oriented.

    Aloha, Diamond Tiger. This, my friend, was a very fine post indeed. You hit all the right notes. To save our democracy, we cannot become complacent. The fight goes on.

  4. We’re with you over at Insight….the three dames are still in there….

  5. Diamond Tiger says:

    I’m off to find a countdown clock for 1/20/2013.

  6. a knight says:

    Please look here.

    I have been accused of being too rough recently upon bloggers who are incapable of actually doing any real research into the veracity of a quote before they mis-attribute it to Jefferson, so I’ll hold my tongue…

  7. Diamond Tiger says:

    Okay A Knight – now go find out who did – and I will reprint it properly. Thanks!

  8. a knight says:

    From what I’ve been able to discern, it was first attributed to Jefferson in a book supposedly written by John Galt, published in 1986. That was enough to leave me rolling in the aisles laughing, but then, I haven’t been a fan of Ayn Rand‘s since I was 17 years old. As to whether there is an author whose REAL name is John Galt, I haven’t a clue, nor do I care to look further.

    This mis-attributed quote caught my attention, because I am a big fan of Jefferson’s, have read a great deal of his works, and it did not seem like his authorship, so I dug around a bit. It is enough for me to know it is false.

  9. They won’t be happy until we’re all slaves with no personal freedoms or choices.

    People better act now!

    Diamond Tiger
    You made mention about the “Black Booted Nazis” that will go door to door in regards to those who have purchased large amounts of ammo. My question is: How are they going know who bought those large amounts? When ammo is bought, you don’t have to give your identity or any other info.

  11. Devon Young says:

    Call your Congressman and ask that he co-sponsor HR 1207, Paul’s bill to Audit the Fed. This bill has 58 co-sponsors FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE even though Paul has had no lobbying campaign for this issue. Even Henry Waxman has signed on.

    I called my Congressman last week on this, and the next day, he was a co-sponsor. These folks are beginning to see the “handwriting on the wall” and will get on board.

    I’d like to see the list of folks who dare to vote against this measure.

    House Bill 1260

    DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL

    Encoded ammunition. Requires ammunition manufacturers to encode all ammunition: (1) provided for retail sale in Indiana; and (2) used in handguns and assault weapons; by July 1, 2009. Prohibits a person from selling ammunition at retail after June 30, 2009, unless the ammunition has been encoded by a manufacturer. Requires the superintendent of the state police department to establish and maintain an encoded ammunition data base before July 1, 2009. Requires ammunition manufacturers and persons who sell ammunition at retail to provide certain information concerning encoded ammunition sales and persons who purchase encoded ammunition to the superintendent for inclusion in the data base. Imposes a fee of $0.05 per round on the sale of encoded ammunition that is sold at retail. Requires the fees to be deposited in the encoded ammunition data base fund to operate the data base. Requires a person who owns ammunition for a handgun or assault weapon that is not encoded ammunition to dispose of the ammunition before July 1, 2011. Makes an appropriation.

    It looks as if they want to keep ammo info recorded in a database. People who are currently stockpiling ammo will have to use it or lose it by 2011, or else they will have to hide it because it will be illegal.

    YES:

    The condition and timber of the economy is the backbone of all things that concern a free and moral society.

    WHAT the majority does not appear to grasp is that NO WHERE in our Constitution does it give this self anointed Dictator and his corrupt criminal administration, and the corrupt criminal democrat controlled congress the power or rights to STEAL the assets and powers of the law abiding private sector from the Legal Citizens, Legal Shareholders, Legal Patent holders, Legal Trade Mark holders and squander it to appease the parasites, the leeches, the lawless, the illegal invaders, those who get them elected and then reward the corrupt criminal elected and appointed leaders with unlimited powers over our lives and labors.

    NO where in our Constitution does it give the DICTATOR and his corrupt criminal administration and the corrupt criminal congress the rights and powers to give control of our lives, freedom, liberties, rights of self determination to any other nation or organization of other nations.

    All of the participants in the theft and destruction of our auto industry, financial industry, and soon the health care and energy industry need to be impeached and or recalled, replaced and personally held accountable for their breech of their oaths of office and their lawlessness.

    All of those who participate in giving control of our military, technology, innovations, wealth, assets, personal lives without approval of the LEGAL CITIZENS to any other nation and or union of nations needs to be removed from office and charged with treason.

    NO where in our constitution does it state that everyone has a “RIGHT” to health care or free health care.

    And so on.

    We the people have allowed them to take away our rights, liberties, freedom and all rights to self determination.

    SO NOW, WE the people must rise up and reclaim all that has been lost, stolen and deliberately destroyed by the corrupt criminal Federal and State goverments.

    We must make the sacrifice to educate and lead the movement to reverse the critical damage these enemies of the state have inflicted.

    Even our Military has been dumded down from their once cherished valor of Honor, Duty, Country to the influence of the powerful corrupt criminals in control of our government at all levels including our educational system.

    Once we reclaim the leadership, we must consider a constitutional amendment for term limits at all levels of government down to the clerks and aides to these corrupt criminal leaders.

    Imagine a teacher who molests our children cannot be fired because of the Union powers, and that no congressman needs to read a bill before it is signed, and that a “SPEED READER” is hired to blow words into the air, and the the MEDIA has become a tool of the White House down to the production and reporting of the Government controlled information right from our White house.

    Imagine that corrupt criminals, tax cheats, are rewarded with unlimited power, influence and control of our lives.

    Imagine powerful organizations like the Unions and Acorn are supported by our tax dollars and now control our government and daily lives.

    There is no longer a system of checks and balances in our government. There is no longer accountability for illegal activities and or corruption at any level of our government down to the the Mayor of Portland Oregon.

    Make an excuse, apologize, lie, distort, fabricate and now the practice of “situtation ethics” has become the rule of law.

    The peaceful revolution has been started and must continue until we the people have reclaimed 100% of the powers to self determination as provided for in our constitution.

    BE there and bring 10 people July 4th
    Be there and bring 10 people in September
    Be there and bring 10 people to every “TOWN HALL MEETING”

    WRITE, email, call, fax the corrupt criminal congress and both party leadership, Federal and State,
    daily!
    Include the Dictator’s office.

    If they continue to dismiss us like flies, perhaps they all need a Ceausescu moment.

    IMAGINE the arrogance: Senator corrupt, criminal, dishonerable Boxer is more concerned about being called SENATOR BOXER than she is concerned about vital issues concerning this nation.

    What part of that she is supposed to represent the people, not herself and self interests and or the self interests of her party does she not understand.

    Perhaps she and others like her need to be EDUCATED.

  14. Carol Webb says:

    Wow – you wrote this last fall. I did not vote for or like Obama but i was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.I thought those who were pointing to radical ties were nutcases. Then he hired Rahm Emmanuel and I knew we were in trouble. I have gone from the benefit of the doubt to believing that he is not even an incompetent boob but rather a deceptive fascist who is deliberatly destroying our economy so he can have control and rebuild it according to his diabolical fantasy. Is anyone else thinking this – is it like the Emperor’s New Clothes?” We have to say it outloud -”The Emperor has no clothes.” What would Obama do if someone actually accused him of this to his face?

  15. Wow Carol – thanks for leaving the comment and waking up and smelling the coffee! You gotta trust your gut and not be led around by the nose by the media.

    Obama is a fascist dictator wannabe. Back in November I did not realize just how much but after watching him with his takeovers, his czars and his buddies the dictators in countries all over the world, what can one say…if it looks like a duck….

  16. Oh and Carol? Thanks for noticing when I wrote this piece!

  17. NoTingles says:

    We haven’t had a fair, up and up election in this country in decades. To Carol, I would say, you’re on the right track, but take it a little further. He doesn’t work for us, he tries to use us to get to the objectives which have been established by “Globalist Elites” who hand-picked him, and Hillary to hold the offices they now hold. If he didn’t believe what he says is his “vision for Amurica”, he would not have gotten the job. Some other puppet would have though. Poor things. They are so deluded. They seem to operate under the illusion that if they cow-tow to TPTB, they will somehow curry favor with them. Maybe Obama should consult with Gorbachev about this. He tried the ass-kissing routine, and brought about the end of the soviet regime. He thought by serving in this way, he would end up with some cushy, high-power position in the N.W.O. And then they through him under the bus.
