Happy Freakin Holiday Suckers!

While we were busy celebrating Christmas, Washington was busy screwing us over. This is not your casual wham-bam-thank you ma'm kind of screw job, this is more like....uhhhh...RAPE (without a condom).

You are the recipient of three big "gifts" from Washington, one I'm sure you've opened already, Health Care Reform, but there are 2 more that were shoved under your Christmas tree while you were out shopping.

Gift #1: Health Care Reform:

These senators sold their votes for money and special deals. They should be charged with a crime. Getting money and concessions for their states costs the rest of us more money.

1. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), sells her health care reform vote for $300 million.

2. Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) sells his vote for $100 million.

3. Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT.) sells his vote for $100 million.

4. Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) exempted his insurance companies from a new $7 billion dollar tax.

5. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) got a $10 billion grant for community health centers that could perform abortions.

6. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) got an increase in Medicare payments to hospitals in his state.

7. Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) got money for his state's health care system.

8. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) got concessions for insurance companies in his state.
9. Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark) wanted 72 hour concession to read CBO cost's report.
10. Pennsylvania, New York and Florida got protections for their Medicare Advantage.
11. Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming got "Frontier
Freebies" an increase in Medicare Payments to rural hospitals and doctors.
12. Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) said "I didn't get the money for my state. I was too stupid."

Here's a great article with in-depth details on exactly who got what:

Now here are 11 New Taxes Americans will pay for (in one way or another) with the Health Care Reform Bill:

So-called Cadillac plans -- any employer sponsored plan that costs more than $8,500 per year -- will face a 40% additional marginal tax.

Taking money out of your Health Savings Account early, for non-medical purposes, will get you slapped with a 20% tax. That's up from 10% now.

Big pharmaceutical manufacturers will face a $2.3 billion annual "assessment."

Device makers, like the maker of this pacemaker, will face a $2 billion annual tax

Love your flexible spending account? What you can donate to it is capped at $2500 per year. Previously, there was no cap.

Health insurers will get hit with a new $6.7 billion annual fee.

If your employer pays for your drugs, but you're eligible for Medicare Part D, that's no longer tax deductible.

Want a nose job or a boob job? Uncle Sam will take 5% off the top.

Young people without health insurance can expect to start writing $750 annual checks to Washington to pay the fines written into the bill.

Are you "rich" and going to the hospital? That will cost you 0.5% extra.

Health insurance providers will face lower tax deductibility.

Gift #2:


The Treasury announced Thursday it was removing the caps that limited the amount of available capital to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to $200 billion each.

Unlimited access to bailout funds through 2012 was "necessary for preserving the continued strength and stability of the mortgage market," the Treasury said.

Fanny and Freddie have been given a blank check. The new package that will also pay Fannie Chief Executive Officer Michael Williams and Freddie CEO Charles Haldeman Jr. as much as $6 million a year, including bonuses. What was that "Wall Street Fat-Cat" remark Obama made? Hmmm.

Gift # 3:
US Placed under International Police State (This one passed in the dead of night on December 17th.)

President Obama issued an executive order removing the Reagan limitations. That is, Interpol's property and assets are no longer subject to search and confiscation, and its archives are now considered inviolable. This international police force (whose U.S. headquarters is in the Justice Department in Washington) will be unrestrained by the U.S. Constitution and American law while it operates in the United States and affects both Americans and American interests outside the United States.

Why would we elevate an international police force above American law? Why would we immunize an international police force from the limitations that constrain the FBI and other American law-enforcement agencies? Why is it suddenly necessary to have, within the Justice Department, a repository for stashing government files which, therefore, will be beyond the ability of Congress, American law-enforcement, the media, and the American people to scrutinize?

Remember, Obama said he wanted a police force as large, and as well funded, as the military. Now he has it.

So while the Obama's decided once again to skip church services (for Christmas), take heart that "gift giving" is still an integral part of their holiday celebration.

Barney Frank has introduced the "Financial Services Gov't Take Over Bill" last week after the members of congress left town. This is one they are trying to "slip by" while we're busy with the holidays.

This is WORSE for the United States than Health Reform and Cap and Trade!

Here are some Cliff Notes from Michelle Bachmann:

Government Financial Take Over: Government will ration credit, government will decide who get's capital and who doesn't.

This bill makes Bail Out's permanent and gives the Prez (and his Czar)the authority to make bailouts to any company-without approval from Congress.

Massive Job Killer: We will lose about 1 million jobs with this bill.

A Five Member Panel which includes the head of ACORN!

If we are to have liberty in our lifetimes, we must be willing to work together for our common cause.

My purpose in presenting this information is to bring your attention to an existing group who's core beliefs are in line with Conservative values. This information should be used as one more tool in determining which candidates meet your requirements.

A group that meets this criteria is the Campaign for Liberty which was established by Ron Paul in 2008, after he lost the election, to highlight the neglected but common-sense principles we champion and reinsert them into the American political conversation.

(Please be sure to scroll down to view a list of candidates that have been approved by the board as having the Conservative principles necessary to be selected as a "Liberty Candidate. Click on their names to go to their page.)

The mission of Campaign for Liberty is to promote and defend the great American principles of:
  1. Individual Liberty
  2. Constitutional Government
  3. Sound Money
  4. Free Markets
  5. Noninterventionist Foreign Policy

What Principles Will Liberty Candidates Support?


Strong fiscally conservative principles and beliefs that our economic recovery should be left to the free market through businesses and individuals – not the federal government. ~Peter Schiff Senate 2010 Connecticut

Personal Liberty

The Federal Government must return to its constitutionally enumerated powers and restore our inalienable rights. America can prosper, preserve personal liberty, and repel national security threats without intruding into the personal lives of its citizens. ~Rand Paul Senate 2010 Kentucky

Foreign Policy

Taken as a whole, America's current foreign policy is a grossly unconstitutional one that we cannot afford. It has put us in a situation where children born today are burdened with an impossible debt. It is premised on a twisted version of American exceptionalism which assumes we have the right to police the world without respect for the sovereignty of fellow nations. If we hope to be respected in the global community, we would be wise to heed the advice of Thomas Jefferson and seek, “peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations - entangling alliances with none.” ~Adam Kokesh Congress 2010 New Mexico

Ending the Federal Reserve

What goes on at the Fed is a clear example of the infringement upon our liberty and national sovereignty through Congressional delegation of its authority. Now, the Fed refuses to even let us see how much and to whom our money has been loaned or how much they have indebted the American People. They do so by rightly asserting that they are a private entity and therefore do not have to comply with orders to open their books. Our Congress has completely lost control over the creation of money and credit and now we are all going to pay the price of that abrogation of their duty. ~RJ Harris Congress 2010 Oklahoma

2nd Ammendment

"To keep and bear Arms" That means, you can obtain them, keep them, and carry them. The idea that you can only have an unloaded gun in your closet under lock and key with the ammunition in a foreign country is ridiculous. Load your gun, put it in your holster, and leave the house. There is no point to keeping a gun you cannot access when you need it. If anyone has time to go home and get their gun, they probably didn't need it in the first place. ~Chris Cantwell Congress 2010 New York

The Next Step in Turning The Tide

Last week I posted a blog entitled "A Country Divided Against Itself Surely Cannot Stand". The purpose of this blog is to encourage you to speak with your Democrat friends and family. Discuss some of the hot button issues using the 20 statements I listed. And finally, tie it together by helping them understand the socialist views on those same issues.

The next step in turning the tide is to take a lesson from Obama's very successful campaign.

Obama had a huge "Social Media" advantage. Consider the following:

Close to 500 million blog postings mentioned Obama from the beginning of the conventions at the end of August through November 5th, 2008.
During the same time period, only about 150 million blog posts mentioned McCain.

Obama also held a clear lead on My Space with 844,927 "friends".
McCain had 219,404 My Space Friends.

There are 724,234 Flicker items on Barack Obama
There are 61,338 items on Flicker on John McCain

Obviously, Barack Obama crushed John McCain in all metrics, even though John McCain has been in politics FAR longer than Barack Obama. Other than George Bush, McCain was probably the best known, most interviewed, and most written about Republican politician.

So 26 years of exposure verses 4 years, Obama obliterated McCain in the Social Media landscape.

Today, Bill O'Reilly admitted he didn't even know what "Facebook" is! Pretty scary considering Bill O'Reilly has 13 "Fan Groups" on Facebook, one group with over 10,000 fans!

We can't set up a social media website for the next GOP candidate. And the odds of a Republican "James Carville" coming down the pike any time soon seem pretty slim. We do however have some "Rock Stars" of our own.

We have Sarah Palin who's uses her Facebook page like a pro and has over one million "friends".

Glenn Beck with almost 500,000 "friends" on Facebook and uses "Twitter" on a regular basis to reach out to his fan base.

But what about YOU? Do you have social network accounts? There are more of "us" than there are of "them". We need to start showing our numbers and our power.

Join Facebook, Twitter and My Space. Start building a network of friends. Facebook allows you to categories your friends. Mine are categorized by "family" and "politics".

Look for groups to join. Make friends on those groups. Then start posting on your profile and "share" with your friends. Don't be a pest. Don't harass. That will only result in being "hidden" or "un-friended".

Find one great article per day. Something you're sure they will not see on the Main Stream Media. A perfect example would be "Climategate". Many blogs and news articles have "share buttons" where you can automatically upload the articles to your profile.

The point here is we need to beat Obama and his henchmen at their own game. And that starts with educating your less informed "friends" without bashing Obama. It's not unusual for members to have 500+ friends. Imagine the impact if we all started educating the masses. We need to start now.

Do You Need A Reminder On What It Means To Be A Patriot?

If you're here to stand up and charge into the fight--Then you need to watch this~Congressional candidate Lieutenant Colonel West speaking at the American Freedom tour in Fort Lauderdale Florida
