Time has nominated the new face of birth control (or shall I say “redistribution of wealth and government dependency.” as their “Person of the Year 2012.”
How appropriate in the Year of the Dependent (on the Government) that Time pick the poster child for government dependence. She wants conservatives to stay out of the bedroom except when it come s time to pick up the bill….very fitting..
This may well be the last time I speak on the House Floor. At the end of the year I’ll leave Congress after 23 years in office over a 36 year period. My goals in 1976 were the same as they are today: promote peace and prosperity by a strict adherence to the principles of individual liberty.
It was my opinion, that the course the U.S. embarked on in the latter part of the 20th Century would bring us a major financial crisis and engulf us in a foreign policy that would overextend us and undermine our national security.
To achieve the goals I sought, government would have had to shrink in size and scope, reduce spending, change the monetary system, and reject the unsustainable costs of policing the world and expanding the American Empire.
The problems seemed to be overwhelming and impossible to solve, yet from my view point, just following the constraints placed on the federal government by the Constitution would have been a good place to start.
How Much Did I Accomplish?
Democrats at their finest!
Obama is calling for $1.6 TRILLION in tax increases.
The Associated Press reports this morning that the deficit for October, the first month of the new fiscal year, was $120 billion. That figure is 22% higher than the October 2011 deficit. And even though tax receipts were up 13% from October 2011, spending was up 16%. This level of spending is unsustainable.
Speaking about the debt and deficit yesterday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “[Obama] does not believe that reducing deficits and debt are values unto themselves.”
That’s obvious. Conservatives believe it is immoral to put a burden on our children and grandchildren that will dramatically and negatively affect their future standards of living.
The Republican establishment, consultants, and talking heads should all just take a deep breath.
Yes, we have a serious problem with Hispanics. It’s a problem conservative Hispanics have been trying to tell the GOP leadership about for many years with little or no response or action. But the quick-fix immigration solutions now being offered by the likes of Charles Krauthammer and other establishment-elites figures are an over-correction, do not actually address the root of the problem, and, frankly, may even accelerate our losses in the crucial Hispanic demographic.
First, let’s start with the facts. Hispanics rank immigration fourth in their list of concerns, behind the economy, education, and health care. Obama has actually deported more Hispanics than any other president. Hispanics simply perceive him as caring more about them, and this is more an issue of style than of substance. Hispanics start businesses at twice the rate of the general population. They are entrepreneurial and naturally averse to governments that breed economic stagnation, which stands in the way of the upward mobility they seek. They’ve experienced centralized, dysfunctional, crony government in their countries of origin, and they know it doesn’t lift anyone out of poverty.
OUR 23rd STATE: Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst endorsed a change yesterday in state law to require a first-ever mandatory drug testing for welfare recipients and those receiving unemployment assistance.
Texas is now the 23rd state which has either implemented a similar change or is considering it. The law would keep welfare recipients from spending money on illegal drugs, instead of necessary living expenses for which it is intended.
Drug users who flunked a mandatory test would be disqualified from receiving benefits for up to 12 months, but could qualify for treatment programs. 80 percent of Texas employers are now requiring drug-testing of employees and prospective employees. The measure is opposed by the ACLU, Moveon and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.
America in its earliest days attracted people from all over the world for one simple reason: freedom. Freedom was not just about the right to say what you want or casting a ballot in an election; freedom meant having the liberty to make something of your life. It was freedom unlike any other. Back when, if you were born rich, you tended to die rich, and more important, if you were born poor, you most likely died poor. But not in America.The fact of the matter is, anybody with the drive to succeed, no matter their past or their family standing, could go as far as there god given talents and rights could take them.
However, this freedom was not made possible by government meddling in the economy or taxing the American people to serfdom. American officials did not get rich on the backs of taxpayers; they did it by leaving the government after a few years and making money in the free market. But uncle Sam started to get addicted to OPM, other peoples money, stealing the resources of the rich in order to enslave the poor. The brilliance of this ( if you would call it that) is that they thought it would work.
Nancy Pelosi is staying mum about whether she wants to keep leading the Democrats in the House of Representatives, though she suggested Tuesday that she’ll announce one way or the other on Wednesday if she plans to step down from her leadership position.
“While I love you all very dearly, I thought maybe I would talk to my own caucus before I shared that information with you,” Pelosi told reporters during a Tuesday press conference at the Capitol. Pelosi suggested an announcement about her future will come during a Wednesday press conference.
“I’ll see you tomorrow at 10, for those of who you are interested,” Pelosi said with a laugh.
This isn’t the first time that Pelosi’s future has been in question after an election. In 2010, Pelosi surprised observers by not stepping down after the disastrous midterm election that saw Democrats lose 63 seats. Pelosi has served as Democratic leader for 10 years. Minority Whip Steny Hoyer is believed to be the most likely replacement for Pelosi if she steps down.
I really wanna get the word out, and I believe we can do this! Thank you!
For those of you who are conservatives like me, go to this page and sign these petitions!
There are like 20 states that are petitioning to secede and they need 25000 votes by a month after they were created, so sign and spread the word as much as you can! You have to create an account, but it’s very easy and you can sign as many of the petitions you want! texas has the most so if my state doesn’t go we’re totally moving…but anyway, spread the word! This is important!
There’s also petitions about recounting the election and coming clean about Benghazi…they need signatures!
Then follow me because I want you as a friend:)

Sad part is, these are the only ones I FOUND!! And these are major companies! God Knows there are thousands of more companies out there laying off workers and small business in general have it harder! THIS IS WHAT WE VOTED FOR! TWO DAYS AFTER ELECTION. Can you imagine four more years?
Obama victory, plus 4 days: Already, the US economy is making major changes, and it seems that job creators from sea to shining sea are casting their post-election votes. Employers are now going through a rash of being forced to make layoffs, trying to build buffer zone between the solvency of their businesses and the new taxes and regulations that are on their way, come January.
Keep in mind: The economy doesn’t have the luxury of being political, but it can only react to political winds. Thus, you have layoffs when a President is reelected, who is wildly hostile to economic prosperity and freedoms which result in actual private sector job creation.
Again, businesses are not operating for political purposes …they are in it for profits and growth (obviously). They are organisms with no political views that only react to external stimuli in an effort to capitalize on future ‘weather’ events. If you doubted that Washington’s current policies are detrimental to businesses, you should have checked the stock market ticker the morning after Tuesday evening. Of course, if you are truly a liberal, and abhor profits …just think of that when you get your paycheck from your evil job-creator boss, and sip your latte from the local Starbucks (which just so happens to be another business that’s in it for the profits.)
It is upsetting how many articles I have seen that state “New business laid off more workers due to Obama’s Re-election”
