The Dictatorship Is Here

Below is a letter from one of our members on the Debt Ceiling Bill.  Very thought provoking…Remember the establishment Republicans lecturing the TEA Party, telling us that this was the best we could expect to get with a divided federal government?  We got a lot more than that with this bill.

The Dictatorship Is Here.

Not only have the federal elections last year proven to mean nothing, we are in fact about to have the most sweeping unconstitutional change to our system of government take place shortly.

They, under the guise of the debt debate, have just created what amounts to, a ruling Politburo that will work directly with the President. Congress has just been relegated to a subordinate role to the new “SUPER CONGRESS” that will work directly with POTUS.

Yes, the Republicans have just sold this country out, big time. This SUPER CONGRESS will have substantial powers that will in effect, allow the establishment Republicans and Democrats, to have total control of the process in Washington. Take that Tea Party! Take that all of you Patriots! How dare you Tea Party Patriots disrupt our agenda to create a regionalized Global Government with your silly elections last Fall. We will make certain that you never, regardless of your vote, have that type of influence on the process again.

This is one of the most serious threats to our Republic in our history. We now have the ruling elite in total control of the legislative process. You see, America saw “gridlock” on capitol hill. We saw how “difficult” the process is. In the face of a “serious crisis” (the debt ceiling) there was wrangling and bickering instead of agreement. Isn’t that what we continually heard!? That Americans were frustrated with the process? Well folks, this was NOT a crisis. Making it tough to pass big things quickly was the way our founders PURPOSELY DESIGNED the system.

Yet they have used that argument and the phony negotiations to accomplish something absolutely extraordinary in America’s history. A SUPER CONGRESS with the power to control the substance of policy and the process by which it is passed in to law.

Now we know what was behind this crisis. IT WAS NOT ABOUT FIXING SPENDING OR CUTTING IT! Why can that be said? Because ZERO spending has been cut. Zero. The only thing accomplished on that end was we will now reduce the amount of INCREASE over the next ten years. Instead of increasing spending by 10 trillion we will now only increase it by 9 trillion.

Instead of dealing with the debt crisis by reducing the debt we just, in effect, extended the debt limit by 2.4 trillion! That is reducing the debt!? Increase spending by 9 trillion and increase the debt limit by 2.4 trillion!? That is dealing with the crisis? Only in Washington speak does that make sense.

What does make sense is that the establishment Republicans and Democrats were able to create this SUPER CONGRESS which is totally unconstitutional and is the beginning of what will soon be an old Soviet style Politburo under the direction of a POTUS with extraordinary new powers.

Very serious days in which we live folks. May all of our fellow Patriots and Countrymen hear this call.

Wisconsin State Journal Article On The Wisconsin TEA Parties Difficult Choices Ahead

Here is a link to the Wisconsin State Journal article regarding some of the choices the TEA Party / Patriot groups in Wisconsin have to make.  We are quoted in the story, so I think it is appropriate to post.

Left and Right Try to Stop the Rand Paul Revolution

The day after Republican Rand Paul’s landslide primary victory in Kentucky, the mainstream Left tried to paint him as a segregationist, while the mainstream Right either ignored or attacked him. And for good reason. Like his father Ron, Rand represents revolution, and the establishment is petrified.

Let’s begin with the Left. Afraid that they can’t beat a conservative Republican of Paul’s pedigree in the Tea Party-influenced, anti-Obama political climate of 2010, liberals are trying to run against him in 1964. Cherry-picking irrelevant references Paul has made about private property rights and how they could possibly relate to the Civil Rights Act or even the Americans with Disabilities Act, Democrats are trying to portray Rand the libertarian as a closeted Klansman who secretly hates “coloreds” and “cripples.”

It’s no surprise that in any discussion about government intrusiveness and private business, race-obsessed liberals immediately equate free will and free markets with Jim Crow. When MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow hysterically brought up the specter of segregated lunch counters during an interview with Paul, author Thomas Woods noted the absurdity of even having such a conversation today. Writing for The American Conservative, Woods says: “Any non-hysteric knows a segregated restaurant would be boycotted and picketed out of existence within 10 seconds, but we’re supposed to fret about fictional outcomes from the repeal of a law that will never be repealed.” Fictional indeed.

And portraying Paul as somehow being anti-black is no different than conservatives who portray antiwar protesters as anti-American; in both cases, legitimate concerns by citizens about the actions of their government are misconstrued to imply horrible and untrue things about the concerned. Liberals howl when right-wing talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck call President Obama “racist,” and now the Left shamelessly borrows from their playbook.

But it’s not just the Left who are upset over the rapid ascent of America’s next top conservative idol. Former Bush speechwriter David Frum finds Paul to be as “extreme” as liberals do, writing on the day after the election, “Rand Paul’s victory in the Kentucky Republican primary is obviously a depressing event for those who support strong national defense and rational conservative politics.”

Frum’s preferred candidate in the Kentucky primary, Trey Grayson, was not only a former Bill Clinton Democrat but a George W. Bush Republican who deviated rarely from the party establishment and heartily received their endorsement. Both former Vice President Dick Cheney and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell lined up behind Grayson in a desperate attempt to prevent Paul from winning. With Paul trouncing Grayson 59 percent to 34 percent, the old Republican guard lost in a Randslide.

Fashioning himself and his Bush league friends as supporters of “strong national defense” and “rational conservative politics,” it doesn’t take much investigation to discover what Frum believes “rational conservative politics” to be: a return to a GOP brand that today’s grassroots conservatives reject most — big-spending, debt-doubling neoconservatism. Disaffected Republicans turned Tea Partiers are not as enamored with America’s ventures in Iraq and Afghanistan as they once were, and they aren’t so in love with war that they will ignore the continued growth of big government, a narrative Bush and the neocons successfully used for eight years to keep rank-and-file Republicans in line. Frum’s fear is that Kentuckians, and Americans at large, might be encouraged to actually think about the wisdom of American foreign policy.

And this fear extends to conservative talk radio, where on the day after Paul’s victory, hosts Limbaugh and Sean Hannity said next to nothing about it. Compare their silence to the election of Scott Brown, the Massachusetts senator who received wall-to-wall coverage in the conservative media. Why was there so much excitement for this moderate-to-liberal Republican from Massachusetts? That’s easy. Brown was a conventional Republican who excited the conservative base without upsetting the GOP establishment. Paul is the opposite. The Hill‘s John Feehery notes the difference: “Rand Paul will be more than the skunk at the garden party in the U.S. Senate. He will be subversive when it comes to critical Republican orthodoxies.” Like his father, Rand is the Republican establishment’s worst nightmare.

It’s somewhat appropriate that liberals would go all the way back to 1964 in order to attack Rand, because his rise truly is the resurgence of a Barry Goldwater-style, limited-government philosophy. Goldwater’s politics were once the bedrock of American conservatism, but today those beliefs are controversial, not only to the Left with its race obsession, but the mainstream Right, which fails to find virtue in Rand’s “extremist” brand of liberty. This ridiculous, two-party status quo restricts substantive debate, impedes real reform, and begs for revolution. And whether the establishment likes it or not, Rand Paul just might give it to them.
