Once More Unto The Breach

We are rapidly approaching the time when the RNC, along with a few thousand voters in Iowa and New Hampshire, will provide us with another candidate for President that either has no chance to win (Dole & McCain), or are U. N. loving, conservatives in name only. One look at the current leader board being thrust upon us and clearly We the People must conduct an immediate and radical interdiction. If not, we will be asked to hold our noses and vote for the lesser of two evils, again. It does not have to be that way.

There is a Reagan Republican in our midst. This man knows that the United States is a force for good in this world. He is a man who knows that the government that governs the least is the one that governs the best. That person is Congressman Allen West. Please Goggle him and watch a few YouTube videos of him speaking. His candor and message will make you want to stand up and cheer.

There is a grassroots campaign to try and convince him to run for President. I recently sent the letter below to his Florida and DC offices. If you want a candidate that you can enthusiastically support, send him a message and copy the RNC.

Dear Lt. Col. West:

I doubt that I will sign up with the group that is trying to convince you to run for President. This is only because like the wise old sage Groucho Marx once said, “I would never join any club who would have someone like me as a member.” However, know that I truly believe that our Republic needs you… now.

I cannot imagine anyone wanting to be President of the United States. I also believe that anyone who wants to be President should never be President. So it came as no surprise to hear you say that it wasn’t your time. To paraphrase, you had not yet paid your dues. Please consider this:

When you made the decision to put the welfare of your soldiers above your career and the financial wellbeing of your family, God smiled. You have indeed paid your dues.

When our new Republic was fraying at the seams and about to come apart, some patriots went to Mount Vernon. When they asked Washington to once again lead our nation, he responded something like, “Have I not yet done enough for our Country?” Of course, he knew there was never a choice. Special men like George Washington and Allen West make the hard choices. It is in your heart. It is in your DNA. It is both your curse and your blessing.

On page 74 of my tiny CliffNotes version of what was destroying America (AR2010), I wrote: “Lt. Colonel (Retired) Allen West is running for a congressional seat in Florida. This man is a proven combat leader, not a pentagon Colonel. Check out the 6 minute YouTube “Bayonets” speech. He would make Ronald Reagan proud. If Colonel West was President rather than Barrack Obama, the world would be a safer place; safer because weakness, real or imagined, leads to aggression by others.”

I have absolutely no right to ask you once more unto the breach. No one does. But…your country needs you. She is in peril. You know this far better than I do.

Rome is Burning

Representatives King and Bachmann have issued a letter to the House leadership urging them to rescind the $105 billion that was hidden within the 2.900 page bill to immediately fund Obama Care. According to Bachmann, Section 402 of this bill provides for$16 billion of this money to be spent in any manner deemed appropriate by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Also, under Section 1311(a), Sebelius is allowed to take money direct from the Treasury and give any amount to any State without having to secure approval from Congress. With the 2012 elections just around the corner, is there any doubt Kathy will deem the blue state of California, the SEIU and ACORN (by any other name) as worthy?

King and Bachmann want House Speaker Boehner to insert a provision in the new Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government that would rescind this massive theft. According to a flash Tea Party Patriots’ email, Speaker Boehner’s response was that he would not “break the rules” by including a defunding provision in the next CR. There are so MANY things wrong with Boehner’s response, not the least of which is A) He has waived the rules for other issues and B) His party is now the majority and make the rules.

So, the Republican leadership has done their level best to convince their more conservative members to understand why they should not keep their promises to those who put them in office. Part of that promise was to cut a paltry $100 billion from the budget this year. After much blow-back, they came up with just over $61 billion in cuts. Come on! The government added $3 trillion to the national debt over the past 2 years. To put this in perspective, if you were spending $2,000 a month on necessities such as food, rent, insurance, etc. and realized you had to cut expenses or go bankrupt, this would be like cutting your discretionary spending by 6 cents a month. Yet, they are still arguing over this.

Now that we know of this $105 Billion liberal slush fund, anyone in Congress who does not support King and Bachmann in their position of immediately rescinding this atrocity is not serious about opposing Obama Care.

The House leadership is saying they want to secure a 3-week Continuing Resolution and are demanding cuts of $6 billion or they will not pass it, allowing the government to shut down. Really. According to Senator Mark Warner (D), our debt increases by $4 billion a DAY! So under this brilliant plan the debt will have a net increase of another $78 billion at the end of the 6 weeks.

It never stops. We are approaching $14 Trillion in debt and on the verge of becoming a second tier nation. With all this, what does Congress focus on? Last Friday Congressman McClintock sent out an e-letter to announce the 2011 Congressional Arts Competition, a nationwide high-school art competition sponsored by the U.S. House of Representatives. They just don’t get it.

Our politicians make Nero appear to have been a pro-active leader. We are rapidly running out of time to save our Republic. This is a threat to our very sovereignty.
