Vote like your life depends on it because it does.

In the last 4 months, we have had  the NDAA bill signed into law which allows arrest and imprisonment of Americans without a trial, CISPA which allow the government access to our private emails and other internet information has passed the House. and the Supreme Court rule that strip searches were legal even if you have never been convicted of a crime.

We are losing our freedom and independence. It has to be stopped.

Vote out anyone who is voting for any unconstituional laws.Do not vote for anyone who will increase spending and taxes. It is time to take a stand.

We lose more of our liberty and freedom!

We are searched at the airport, we can be arrested and imprisoned without a trial, we can be stripsearched without being convicted on a crime, and now, the governmen is trying to be able to force companies like Verizon and FaceBook to hand over your private communications to government officials without a warrant.

It has passed the House so quickly that Ron Paul was not able to get back for the vote. It is now headed for the Senate.

I guess that the 4th Amendment to the Constitution has been ruled unconstitutional.

Only vote for candidats who will follow their oath to uphold the Constitution.

What is liberalism?

Sometimes, I wondered if I am really a conversative because I am concerned about the less fortunate. I wonder about the greed of big business. Then I read this Ludwig von Mises quote about liberalism.
Liberalism is no religion, no worldview, no party of special interests. It is no religion because it demands neither faith nor devotion, because there is nothing mystical about it, and because it has no dogmas. It is no worldview because it does not try to explain the cosmos, and because it says nothing and does not seek to say anything about the meaning and purpose of human existence. It is no party of special interests because it does not provide or seek to provide any special advantage whatsoever to any individual or any group. It is something entirely different. It is an ideology, a doctrine of the mutual relationship among the members of society and, at the same time, the application of this doctrine to the conduct of men in actual society. It promises nothing that exceeds what can be accomplished in society and through society. It seeks to give men only one thing: the peaceful, undisturbed development of material well-being for all, in order thereby to shield the m from the external causes of pain and suffering as far as it lies within the power of social institutions to do so at all. To diminish suffering, to increase happiness: That is its aim. No sect and no political party has believed that it could afford to forgo advancing its cause by appealing to men's senses. Rhetorical bombast, music and song resound, banners wave, flowers and colors serve as symbols and the leaders seek to attach their followers to their own person. Liberalism has nothing to do with all this. It has no party flower and no party color, no party song and no party idols, no symbols and no slogans. It has the substance and the arguments. These must lead it to victory.
This seems to be a great plan for a free society. Anyone who wants liberty, freedom, and independence should agree.

Government interference effects the market.

Anytime the government attempts to control the market, it creates effects that would not have happened it the government had left the market to itself. Therefore, the actions of government will determine who profits and who loses.

For instance, the government mandates seat belts in every car. The seat belt manufacturers made more profits. The auto manufacturers may have to install seat belts at below cost to remain competitive, so they may suffer a loss.

In today's economic condition, the government should reduce the red tape, eliminate the restrictive regulations, and lower the cost of starting and running a business.

I am 83 and tired by Bill Cosby

I had seen this before, but I think that it is interesting enough to consider it again. I am only 72, but I know how he feels.
I'm 83 and I'm Tired
I'm 83.Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some some serious
health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired.

I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take
the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and
daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to.

I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..

I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor. I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives andactions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20's be-deck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby makingthemselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.

Yes, I'm tired. But I'm also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in!
