The Obama Cult of Personality Marches On

The video below is just another great video from The Naked Emperor.

I originally found it on Hot Air in an entry by Ed Morrissey.

The Obama cult of personality marches on.

The creepiness factor continues to rise.

One bright and shining Obama cult member thought it would be a good idea to list on her public Obama page, the names, addresses and phone number of those she had recruited.

Hating What’s Right

I found this Heritage Foundation video on The Peoples Press Collective.

An excellent speech by Evan Sayet given to The Heritage Foundation this past March 3rd.

The video is one hour two minutes in length but well worth the time.

View it in pieces if you haven’t the time to view it all at once.

Best line of the speech (actually during the questions and answers period):

“I will no longer sit by and allow slanders against my country”

Heritage Foundation

Evan Sayet has been a top Hollywood writer and producer for more than 20 years. His credits range from “The Arsenio Hall Show” to “Politically Incorrect.” After the September 11 attacks, Sayet decided to step from behind the camera and speak out in his own voice – that of one of the nation’s top political satirists. At Heritage, his entertaining yet quite serious lecture will examine the modern liberal “mindset” and how it can lead to siding with evil over good and behaviors that produce failure rather than success.

Aristotle, Plato, Conservative, Socialist And A Fast Rocket Ship

In his writing of Politics, Aristotle said

Even the best of men in authority are liable to be corrupted by passion. We may conclude then that the law is reason without passion, and it is therefore preferable to any individual.

Contrast this thought with that of Plato

The best thing of all is not that the law should rule, but that a man should rule, supposing him to have wisdom and royal power.

It is assumed that whoever may read this agrees that a society must have laws.

It is also assumed that we may well disagree as to if those laws should be laws that are anchored permanent laws or if they should be laws that are ever changing and at the whim of the person or persons in power at any given moment.

The conservative believes in established and firm laws and believes that this is what is best for society and best for freedom of the individual. 

Absent established laws any societal code and understanding would be ever changing, making that society unstable and leaving peace, prosperity and property always at risk.

Absent this code the society is absent an identity, absent an identity the people are then unsure of their role and do not know their responsibilities.

When we have an established code/set of laws we then know our rights and our responsibilities. Further we know the responsibilities and limits of those who govern us.

What we as individuals do with those rights and responsibilities and how skilled we are with the handling of them is what will determine much of our success in a free society.

Those that handle their rights and responsibilities with seriousness and care are likely to succeed in one manner or another, while those who ignore their rights and responsibilities will likely fail  and will cause some kind of drag on society.

It is only when we have laws that are fixed and just and that are common to all citizens that we can have the sense that we are free to live our lives and carry out our business as we know our boundaries, the boundaries of our neighbors and those of of government.

The alternative is a society where the laws are ever changing as is the playing field according to the whims and schemes of those who govern.

America has been a society that lived in agreement with the quote from above by Aristotle, we are becoming a society that is being forced into the idea of Plato.

I suggest to you that Obama, his administration and the ruling democrats in Washington D.C. are corrupted by their passions and do think themselves wise.

I suggest that we are becoming a society where those who have ignored and mishandled their rights and responsibilities are to be coddled, propped up and know little to no consequences for their imprudence, their recklessness. In fact, they are only being encouraged in it.

In honesty, we’ve been moving this direction since long before Barack Obama showed up on the national scene.

Bush took us off the slow boat towards socialism and put us on a fast train.

Barack Obama put us on a rocket ship to European styled socialism.

I always had hope we could turn the boat around, slow the train to a stop, it’s a bit harder to jump from a rocket ship however.

I don’t think we have left the launch pad as of yet, but no doubt the count down has begun. It will take one loud, unified voice to yell “abort launch” to keep this rocket from lifting off.

 

Destruction of Liberty

From the book, The 5000 Year Leap Principles of Freedom.

I’m on my second reading of this book, this portion stuck out to me and fits in well considering the nation wide tea parties held yesterday.

21st Principle

Strong local self government is the keystone to preserving human freedom

The centralization of political power always destroys liberty by removing the decision-making function from the people at the local level and transfering it to the officers of the central government.[…]

and they lose the will to solve their own problems. They also cease to be involved in community affairs. […]

[they, the citizens] often degenerate into faceless automatons who have neither a voice nor a vote.

 

 

Ronald Reagan 1964 RNC

An eerily timeless speech.

The more things change, the more they stay the same it seems.

We Surround Them, You Are Not Alone.

unite_die

I’m a big fan of Glenn Beck I listen to his radio daily and watch his TV show on Fox News alomst daily, via my cell phone.

Glenn has come up with a new idea called We Surround them.

Do you watch the direction that America is being taken in and feel powerless to stop it?Do you believe that your voice isn’t loud enough to be heard above the noise anymore?Do you read the headlines everyday and feel an empty pit in your stomach…as if you’re completely alone?If so, then you’ve fallen for the Wizard of Oz lie. While the voices you hear in the distance may sound intimidating, as if they surround us from all sides—the reality is very different. Once you pull the curtain away you realize that there are only a few people pressing the buttons, and their voices are weak. The truth is that they don’t surround us at all.We surround them.

So, how do we show America what’s really behind the curtain? Below are nine simple principles. If you believe in at least seven of them, then we have something in common. I urge you to read the instructions at the end for how to help make your voice heard.

Please watch the video below and follow the We Surround Them link above to finsih reading the article.

It’s hard to make our voice heard in a nation of 300 million.

Especially when 200 plus million of us are babbling about meaningless crap like who is dating who in Hollywood.

Glenn does have a way here for us to make ourselves known.

Another way of course is to call, fax and email the hell out of our elected representatives.

Listen,

we are standing on the edge of living in a full blown socialist nation.

The coming stimulus plan WILL take freedoms from you.

It WILL give government more control over your life and the lives of your children.

Join in with the We Surround Them campaign but also take an hour to call, fax or email every last elected official from all 50 states in Washington DC and tell them to vote against the so called stimulus plan.

You can seriously email everyone one of them in 45 min, I know because I’ve done so twice this week.

Contact list for Senators, click here.

Contact memebers of congress by clicking here.

To make it quick and easy compse an email that you can copy and paste for each email or contact form.

It may not seem like much, but you can do something and each person they hear from is more pressure on them to do the right thing for America.
