Republicans are moving towards the same goals as the Democrats, they are just not so brazen about it.
"Democrat" has come to be the new, politically correct term for a Socialist and Socialism is the antithesis of our [Constitutional] Republic..therefore, to be a Democrat is to be against America and the Constitution.
Some people may ask why is the Constitution always brought up? Because it is the supreme law of the land. It is the basis for and the framework in which we conduct the business of the nation.
H.R. 3162, Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Pub. L. No. 107-52)"...acts of domestic terrorism are those which: "(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended— (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States."
How does one "...influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion.."?
On the Republican side, it was George W.'s insistence that the U.S.A. P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act be signed off on without reading it. In the name of the 9/11 crisis, to protect us from the evil Arab hijackers and sleeper cells certainly already within our borders, he had to have the legislation, right then! That certainly influenced the policy!
One could argue his illegal wire tapping of citizens was certainly an act of domestic terror, towards the citizens.
Now we have Obama's plans, legislation from bail outs to medical & health to just about every facet of the America life. The man who touted "transparency in government" as one of the main changes he would bring to Washington, is doing just as Bush did. His "Don't read it, just pass it because I have determined America needs this.", attitude is the same as a dictator who thinks he knows what is best...because we are all too stupid to figure it out.
No, Mr. Obama. The American people are NOT too stupid, but they are on the losing end of the power stick. And all the GREEDY politicians have the power stick by both hands.
Obama, in just a few short months, has nationalized the banking industry, and the auto industry. He has done what politicos before him have been trying to do for over 100 years.
Without the Supreme Court becoming a socialist tool, the Congress could not have abrogated their duties.
Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution: "The Congress shall have power to ... coin Money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures. .." Not the Federal Reserve. Congress.
Therefore, Congress "delegating" this Constitutional authority to another, was at that time, an illegal act, certainly an unconstitutional act, and could be said to day, in hindsight, an act of domestic terrorism.
We find in 1928 the court case described as "The Effective Demise of the Nondelegation Doctrine". Then President Calvin Coolidge, (R), "set tariff rates that would equalize production costs in the United States and competing countries." In J. W. Hampton, Jr. & Co. v. United States, 276 U.S. 394 (1928), the supreme court upheld the president's actions.
The entire point is that neither party has clean hands when it comes to protecting and supporting the Constitution. Neither party can point the finger at the other and say,"it's their fault".
So if both parties are moving this nation towards socialism and if most Americans (who understand what socialism is about) don't want it, then WHY are they still voting party lines? Why are they still voting Democrat or Republican?
It is time for a change America, and that change is to start taking our country back and start looking towards another party the independent parties.
HAPPY FLAG DAY
