We have a strange man in the White House. This election is a crossroads, because either his power will be curbed by depriving him of his huge Congressional majorities or he will continue on a road that jeopardizes both our freedom and our survival. Amen brother.Thomas Sowell says we’re at “A Crossroads Election.” The biggest example was the Healthcare legislation: “Rushing ObamaCare into law too fast for anyone to have read it served no other purpose than to prevent this very process from taking place. The rush to pass this law that would not take effect until after the next two elections simply cut the voters out of the loop– and that is painfully close to ruling by decree.Other actions and proposals by this administration likewise represent moves in the direction of arbitrary rule, worthy of a banana republic, with only a mocking facade of freedom.”
Can’t decide if this is an editorial or a sermon!!
Tom Skoch, editor of The Morning Journal (Cleveland, OH): EIGHT weeks from now, we will be voting in an election unique in American history.We will be choosing whether to stand up and fight for the America of liberty and law conceived by our founders, or to stand down and allow our “shining city upon a hill” to be demolished.We will decide whether to preserve and strengthen the American Dream for our children and grandchildren or to abandon our descendants to unexceptional lives in a gray socialist welfare state.We will decide whether to take back Congress for those who believe in the rule of law, or to hand it over to those who would allow laws and liberty to be overridden by the whims of the men in power. Election Day will be time to push back hard and stop them.Amen.
With unemployment rising, a healthcare crisis and the planet on the brink of incineration, the stimulus bill is only the first step in fixing the nation’s problems.By David Sirota – SalonWhat the heck?
I was drawn to this article at Salon by the catchy headline in my news reader. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE BELOW THE JUMP, SO … The road called “reform” that cuts through this craggy political landscape is littered with legislative corpses, as these interests have done — and will do — everything possible to protect their bottom line. Obama seems to know this reality, saying the stimulus bill is only “the beginning of the end” of the economic emergency. He is carefully plotting his next tactical decisions — when to stage particular climbs, which passes to traverse, what cliffs to avoid. But with the stakes so high — with unemployment rising, the healthcare crisis worsening, and the planet on the brink of incineration — one decision must be a foregone conclusion: the decision about whether to proceed.Turning back now, or staying here in Denver for fear the ascent is too tough, is no longer an option. We’re past the point of no return.
