When the president spoke of change, he was defying his oath to the constitution

Collective salvation, Wow President Obama was a fan of star trek, who would have thought. I guess while I was admiring 7 of 9, Our President was looking at the Borg Queen and her marvelous Borg system of government. I guess one mans villain is one man’s ideal. You cannot say that He lied, President Obama promised higher prices for energy and he delivered. What we did not understand was the loss of jobs that went along with his vision of change that was the hidden surprise. Individuals that promise Collective salvation tell us that we will not be alone anymore, but what it does not tell us is that it also takes away any chance of individual opportunity. It dummies down the society, and takes away our individual liberties. Whether it is a feudal system, a socialist system or a communist system, it all leads to the same outcome, slavery of the population to a few elite individuals that micromanage our lives. Those systems have brought us wars, starvation, genocide, and a host of bad choices.

It is surprising that all the man has to offer is a modern day form of slavery, I for one say no to this form of change. Does the man hate this nation so much? Does he despise the constitution to the point of defying his oath to serve and defend it? At what point do we let this path of change continue? At what point do we demand of our leadership that they act to defend their own oaths to protect and defend the constitution? How many of us need lose their professions, who amongst us have the resolve to speak out at the powers that be. I am one, are their others?

I do not wish civil unrest, but the longer we have leaders that do nothing. The quicker our alternative solutions leave the realm of possibilities. We have to press our opinions to those who will listen and to those who will argue. The debate has to and must be held, I wish that the conflict could be resolved in a peaceful way. I am a father, a husband and active in our local community. I know full well what has and what will be lost. That scares me, but what scares me more is the historical reality of the direction this man and his followers are leading to.

This has happed before in this country, and we have had individuals in the past stand up as I am asking you to do today. I will leave you with the closing argument of Patrick Henry and his speech to the Virginia legislature. His words show the depth and the pain that we have had in the nations past, this nations past. Whether it is a King or a President, anyone who seeks power over others and disallows our system of checks and balance of powers, it makes little difference. This type of pain if it is allowed to continue will lead to a civil unrest. Read Patrick Henry’s last words of his speech and realize that if we continue to sit, and do not stand we will lose our system that had brought us individual salvation and opportunity. We have a legislature in session; we have an unbalanced leadership of public to private representation here in Nevada. We have to have the individuals that are willing to face the objections of others, to make their points heard. Read and reflect, this man was willing to give all, are you?

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Can a house Divided stand?

Anyone who has read my Blog understands that I am a person that wants to revisit the taxation, and regulatory levels of a decade ago. I hear that I am a right wing nut, well I disagree. The last thing I want is to hurt individual families, by having them lose their jobs, or to face a severe reduction in household income. The problem is that we already have families facing that issue, and the only solution that seems to be coming from our leaders is to increase the cost on all of us. These families have been the small independent family business. These have been the true dreamers, the ones who have tried to create. That is what we have lost. I understand the pain that lower taxes will cause on the public sector. But we have to work together to lower cost on everyone. The goal is to get the dreamers back into the game.

We have overreached, and we have political leaders that have been elected by vilifying certain individuals to get elected. As Lincoln once said a house divided cannot stand. Well we seem to have a bunch of elected officials that are selling this idea. Both from the far right and the far left, we have people preaching violence.

I am not one of them, but I also realize that history will repeat itself if we have not learned from it. We have a federal government that is promoting ideas that only a King would implement. I see a revolution coming; a civil war and I wish I did not. The Reality is that we have leaders leading us over a cliff; some of us will choose not to follow. That is where the rub is, and that is where individual states will have to choose between the independence and the federal collectivism.

Yes you hear me right, if we do not have real leaders that can look beyond their own self interest; we will have a group of states choose independence from our federal government. That choice is the only real solution if the federal government continues on its course it has chosen. I do not what it, but I also realize it has consequences, and the possibility for states standing up and reclaiming their sovereign status guaranteed under the constitution will grow.

what is the intent of the Democrats, and where are they leading us?

I have to wonder, what my old party is doing. The Democrat party has sold its existence to the unions, socialist and the communist. The party of my father used to have a seat for small business, well that seems to be all gone. The vast independent voters, those who have given up on both extremes have to stand up no. if not we are looking at a revolution. I am not preaching armed conflict, but if we do nothing that is what America will be facing.

The left has gone to bed with every radical group that has an agenda to destroy the economy and our way of life. These radicals are changing the old meaning of the American dream of self reliance, to a dream of socialism. Boy the 60's radicals have really found a new drug. Well the generation of do not trust anyone over 30 is now telling us a bunch of lies, and I for one am not buying what they are selling. I guess the generation of love is now looking for a new blue pill to give them the power they have lost in bed. The power they now seek is over you and me, in every aspect of our lives they want control. This will not stand, our founders fought for a system to empower the individual, the group now leading our government wants to weaken the individual. The depths of how far we have fallen are alarming as a nation. They have been working long and hard to destroy our checks and balance system of governing, and we have allowed them to do it.

I am calling for all of you that still believe in the individual, and the potential that giving the individual the freedom to grow, to stand up. If the unions march on Carson City we have to also go. We need to show a solid front and stand by our convictions. For those arguments saying that capitalism has failed, is incorrect, what has failed is we have allowed for our system of government to evolve away from its original intent. Our leaders need to again read the declaration of independence and understand why those words were written. They need to first read the federalist papers and understand the debate that our founders had during the constitutional conventions. And finally the constitution itself and understand the 2/3rd value for blacks in the south and why it was placed into the document and realize it was not out of racism, but it was to bring the southern states into the union.

Our nation is not a racist nation and capitalism is not an evil mechanism to destroy individual freedom. Capitalism is the great equalizer to a society. The problem is that we have allowed monopolies to take the free market and capitalism and turn it on its ear. We have allowed our system to get away from us, which are the real battles that we face, socialism will fail, and it always does. Unfortunately it always cost millions of lives before it fails.
