CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE: "Children are our future!" Have you heard that said recently. After the recent horror in Sandy Hook Elementary School our politicians have been quick to exploit this event for political gain. They say that we need to do something to protect our children! We need to do something to keep our children safe!
Our children are our future!
What I find so hypocritically inconsistent is that these same people who are so concerned about protecting our children have no problem keeping our children from being born. They have no problem with killing our children while they're still inside the womb. Specifically, the practice of partial birth abortion is nothing short of infanticide. So for some reason that escapes me, these children are not worthy of protection or our efforts to keep them safe. This is just wrong!
PRESIDENTIAL CREDIBILITY: President Obama's credibility is being seriously called into question over a variety of issues. The president says that 6 million new jobs have been created during his time in office. The fact is that less than half that amount has been created. The unemployment rate remains at 7.9 percent.
President Obama says that his administration is the most transparent in U.S. history. The fact is that we still don't know all the facts regarding the murder of our diplomats in Benghazi because of his administration's stonewalling the congressional inquiries into the incident.
The Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) will reduce health insurance premiums. If you like your doctor you can keep him. If you like your health plan you can keep it. All of these assertions are patently false.
These are just a few examples.
NATION OF LAWS: We are a nation of laws, not of men. That means that all laws apply to all of us from the President of the United States down to the average citizen. However, our government doesn't have to follow the law, apparently. By law the government must publish a list of regulations that will have an impact on the economy exceeding a certain amount, I think the amount is a billion dollars, BEFORE that regulation goes into effect. The Obama administration has not published this list in contravention of this law.
Law requires the Congress to produce a budget for the federal government every year. The Congress, particularly the Senate, has not produced a budget for the last three years.
IF I COULD WORK MY WILL: If I could work my will I would eliminate ALL pensions for Senators, Congressmen, the President, & Cabinet Secretaries. Elected office was never intended to be a career. People were expected to serve a term or two and then return to private life and live under the laws that they passed. This was seen as a restraint on the passage of oppressive legislation.
I would pass a Constitutional Amendment that says Congress could NOT exempt itself from ANY laws that it passed.
Congress would have to include the specific provision of the U.S. Constitution that authorizes any law that is under consideration.
I would eliminate the Department of Energy, Department of Education, and Department of Veteran Affairs. I would fold their "necessary" functions into other cabinet departments.
I would require people to show an ID at the voter check-in tables before they cast a vote.
I would outlaw the practice of lobbying.
Well, this is what I think. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think! See you in church on Sunday! God bless you!
