Free Lunch For Everybody

This really bothers me.  I have a few friends that say they will be voting for Mr. Obama and I honestly can't figure out why. His record before he was elected is not impressive and mostly unknown. The record after his 2008 election has been a disaster by any measurement.

Our government was designed to permit it's citizens the most freedom possible within the bounds of common-sense. Mr. Obama wants to change all that. He wants to increase government control and reduce our traditional freedoms. He is a brilliant and charismatic speaker an excellent advocate for his point of view. He is wrong. For over 200 years the federal government  has collected taxes, defended the states, supervised the postal system, maintained the intrastate highway system, and provided diplomatic contact with other countries. These functions are not LIBERAL OR CONSERVATIVE, they are common sense and are logical national responsibilities. 

Our founding fathers developed the concept of sending as much responsibility as possible FROM  the federal government to state governments and citizens. The idea has proven to be very successful. Case closed. It was a new concept of government and all Americans benefited.

Candidate Obama and his administration promise CHANGE.  Specifically they promise to RETURN as much authority as they can to the authority of the federal government. They have already forced passage of very controversial the legislation to that end - and it's been a DISASTER.  America is near bankruptcy, we are fighting several extremely expensive wars, we have reduced our defensive capability, and we have begun to withdraw from space exploration, 


MOST Americans  do NOT want this kind of fundamental change. 

So, what are we really seeing here? The Constitution  describes federal powers and directs specific limits to those powers.  During the last two hundred years  political and legal RE-INTERPRETATION of the Constitution has slowly been changing the original design. In many cases mistakes large and small have altered the  original intent. Most Americans think we would be well advised to guide ourselves back. 

But Mr. Obama and his administration have no use for the Constitution. They are  focussed on destroying it rather than amending it. They have already replaced most sources of opposition by appointing:  
  • ultra left liberals, socialists, communists, convicted criminals, radical American haters, and truly incompetent government employees to federal government positions of power. 
Mr. Obama and his administration have been borrowing money hand over fist for ultra left programs (and for purchasing votes). America is now essentially BANKRUPT and has lost influence in the world. Our several wars continue, and  our FREEDOMS are under constant attack by our own government.

Why would anyone want to continue this Obama influenced government?

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 


For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

What Comes Next- And When

The speed of progress is astounding.  Watching television a few days ago I listened to Mark Cuban talk about subjects that I know little about. It was fascinating. He started with cars. Automatic cars. Driverless cars. Cars that think for themselves. All of which ended with a conversation about "artificial intelligence". Frankly, some of the discussion went right over my head. 
He began talking about the growth of computer knowledge and abilities that will result in the power to exponentially grow. Ultimately the amount of knowledge will exceed that of human beings. At that point "artificial intelligence" will control human beings. 

Mr. Cuban stopped there and asked "when this happens in the future, and it will, where will human beings fit in the composition of the universe".  
Several brilliant minds have been working on the answer but no consensus exists - except one. The transition from the dominance of human beings on earth will end will be be replaced b…

Donald (I am not a clown) Trump

I'm eighty years old. Several Presidents have come and gone. Some good. Some not so good.come and go. A few were excellent executives and a few were not. 

Now, out of the blue, comes Donald Trump. The Democrats cheer and the Republicans go back ask themselves 'what just happened'? 

The Democrats watch their candidate turn to dust. Dishonesty and corruption laid her to rest. Bye bye Hillary.

America has endured eight long years of the radical, liberal and  progressive politicians. Our sleepy nation finally agreed that they were attempting to destroy America. Our character, traditions, Constitutional government and international stature were sliding faster and faster toward big government socialism. The foundation of our freedoms that we worked so hard to establish were being undermined before our eyes. 

Our recent President Obama gave us eight years of faulty direction. He trashed the government with misguided appointments that steered America onto the ultra-liberal shoals.

Trum…
