John Boehner on Health Care

In response to the treasonous legislation our elected officials have forced upon us  Mr Boehner gave the following message.

Mr Obama, Mrs Pelosi, Mr. Reid, and all your cronies…  There is a reason the people have fought so hard in opposition to your will.  We believe in America as it was founded!  We will not allow you to destroy our nation and bring us to our knees.  Only God can do that!  And with His help we will damn every move you make until we remove you from office.  As Americans we are charged with the protection of Liberty for the world.  You have betrayed this noble charter in an misguided attempt for comfortable mediocrity.  As Ronald Reagan said “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to….we are the last stand on earth”.  God forget that you were our countrymen!

What is Independent Thinking?

What is Independent Thinking? -by Sharon Presley, Ph.D., Executive Director, RIT

The Oxford Unabridged Dictionary offers many definitions of independent, including “not depending on the authority of others” and “not dependent on others for forming an opinion.” Making up your own mind, in other words. But what does that really mean? Does it mean forming an opinion without input from others? No, of course not, otherwise we “reinvent the wheel” every time we make a decision. We all need relevant information and data on which to base our opinions. It’s the way that we seek information and how we apply it that makes us dependent or independent thinkers. If we uncritically accept whatever values or ideas we’ve been taught by parents, teachers or church, never questioning these ideas or asking ourselves if these ideas really make sense, then we are dependent thinkers (even if the ideas are true!).

An Independent Republic Still? – by Pat Buchanan

An Independent Republic Still? – by Pat Buchanan An Independent Republic Still? by Patrick J. Buchanan Two hundred thirty years have elapsed since Jefferson’s document was signed in Philadelphia, declaring the 13 colonies to be independent forever of the England of George III. In his Farewell Address, Washington defined independence in a single sentence: “It is our true policy to steer clear of any permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.” Jefferson echoed the father of his country, declaring America’s policy to be one of “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.”

In Twently Years

What is the end game?  When it comes to partisan politics, I argue that there is none.  In today’s partisan government there is not much thought given to the consequence of ones actions in years to come.  There is only the thought of how votes will effect the party and a politician’s chances at re-election.  This is the root of our countries current peril.  Those who have been putting in place the policies that have turned government on its head have a plan.  They do not plan for re-election.  They plan for the end result!  It does not matter if they lose an election or suffer a defeat.  The end is always in mind.  The means are not important.  They are working toward their twisted ideal.  Nothing will stop their progress, but the well-thought, planned, opposition.  We must Discover our end result.  So that brings us to the question we have been asked so often in our lives:  Where do you want to be in X years?  Politicians take this question personally.  They think of their careers and what they can do to enact a change that will cause a re-election in 4 years.  As a society we need to ask this same question so I will ask… WHERE IS AMERICA IN TWENTY YEARS?
