Conservative Political and Social Issues
A New York Times/CBS News poll found that a majority of Americans, 52 percent, think the policies of President Barack Obama are moving the United States toward socialism. Published April 14, the poll surveyed the political, racial, and social opinions of both the general pubic and self-described members of the tea party movement. It found that while tea party participants are generally more conservative than the broader population, they are also better educated and slightly more successful. The poll found that almost the entirety of the tea party movement – 92 percent – shared the views of most Americans that Obama was turning the United States into a socialist country. The poll asked respondents specifically whether the president’s policies “are moving the country more toward socialism.” Fifty-two percent answered “toward socialism” while only 38 percent answered “not toward socialism.”
Short, Sweet and To The Point! Does Anybody KNOW Where Those Tax Cuts Were?
Some quotes from a wise man:HOW DID JEFFERSON KNOW? Especially read the last quote from 1802. When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.Thomas Jefferson The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. Thomas Jefferson It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world. Thomas Jefferson I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. Thomas Jefferson My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government. Thomas Jefferson No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. Thomas Jefferson The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Thomas Jefferson To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical. Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.'
Conreast the Jefferson quotes with these. Many sound familiar to where BHO and the regime is trying to take the country.A modern revolutionary group heads for the television station. Avoid all needle drugs, the only dope worth shooting is Richard Nixon. Become an internationalist and learn to respect all life. Make war on machines. And in particular the sterile machines of corporate death and the robots that guard them. Expedience, not justice, is the rule of contemporary American law. Free speech means the right to shout 'theatre' in a crowded fire. I believe in compulsory cannibalism. If people were forced to eat what they killed, there would be no more wars. I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute. Never impose your language on people you wish to reach. Once you get the right image the details aren't that important. Revolution is not something fixed in ideology, nor is it something fashioned to a particular decade. It is a perpetual process embedded in the human spirit. Sacred cows make the tastiest hamburger. Structure is more important than content in the transmission of information. The '60s are gone, dope will never be as cheap, sex never as free, and the rock and roll never as great. The first duty of a revolutionary is to get away with it. The key to organizing an alternative society is to organize people around what they can do, and more importantly, what they want to do. The only way to support a revolution is to make your own. To steal from a brother or sister is evil. To not steal from the institutions that are the pillars of the Pig Empire is equally immoral. Understand that legal and illegal are political, and often arbitrary, categorizations; use and abuse are medical, or clinical, distinctions. When decorum is repression, the only dignity free men have is to speak out. You measure a democracy by the freedom it gives its dissidents, not the freedom it gives its assimilated conformists. Anyone guess who the above are from? How does Abbie Hoffman strike you?
Craven, during this political time i would think that Abbie would be a powerful figure among the right. He spoke of dissent to a government that he felt was too big and too corrupt. Far be it from me to understand what you guys like and dislike. but as for Jefferson i think he also is in many ways not the standard you want to propose. Think on these quotes.."The clergy, by getting themselves established by law and ingrafted into the machine of government, have been a very formidable engine against the civil and religious rights of man." --Thomas Jefferson to Jeremiah Moor, 1800."I am for freedom of religion, and against all maneuvers to bring about a legal ascendency of one sect over another." --Thomas Jefferson to Elbridge Gerry, 1799. ME 10:78"Believing... that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their Legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State." --Thomas Jefferson to Danbury Baptists, 1802. ME 16:281 "Our civil rights have no dependence upon our religious opinions more than our opinions in physics or geometry." --Thomas Jefferson: Statute for Religious Freedom, 1779. ME 2:301, Papers 2:545 and finally your last quote.."To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical." --Thomas Jefferson: Bill for Religious Freedom, 1779. Papers 2:545 notice that it wasn't about healthcare or bank bailouts but the use of tax money to further religion. Something like, i don't know, Prayer in public school.
Democracy Will Fail When Government Takes From Those Who Work and Give It To Those That Do Not Work! Kind Of Think Jefferson Must Have KNOWN Some Progressives and Was Trying To WARN Future Citizens Of Their Danger! Just My Opinion.
Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
