11 reasons why the elections in 2010 will be the most important in the history of the United States

March 21, 2010

By Dr. Ron Paul – U. S. Congressman

January  12, 2010

What would you say if I gave you 11 reasons why the elections in 2010 will be the most important in the history of the United States?

1.  What if I had told you in October 2008, before the last presidential election, that before Barack Obama’s first 100 days in office, the federal government would be in control of both the mortgage and the banking industries? That 19 of America’s largest banks would be forced to undergo stress tests by the federal government which would determine if they were insufficiently capitalized, so they must be supervised by the government?

Would you have said, “C’mon that will never happen in America.”

2.  What if I had told you that within Barack Obama’s first 100 days in office the federal government would be the largest shareholder in two of the US Big-Three automakers:  Ford, GM, and Chrysler? That the government would kick out the CEO’s of these companies and appoint hand-picked executives with zero experience in the auto industry and that executive compensation would be determined, not by a Board of Directors, but by the government?

Would you have said, “C’mon that will never happen in America.”

3.  What if I had told you that Barack Obama would appoint 21 Czars, without congressional approval, accountable only to him, not to the voters, who would have control over a wide range of US policy decisions. That there would be a Stimulus Accountability Czar, an Urban Czar, a Compensation Czar, an Iran Czar, an Auto Industry Czar, a Cyber Security Czar, an Energy Czar, a Bank Bailout Czar, and more than a dozen other government bureaucrats with unchecked regulatory powers over US domestic and foreign policy.

Would you have said, “Cmon that will never happen in America.”

4.  What if I had told you that the federal deficit would be $915 billion in the first six months of the Obama presidency – with a projected annual deficit of $1.75 trillion – triple the $454.8 billion in 2008, for which the previous administration was highly criticized by Obama and his fellow Democrats. That congress would pass Obama’s $3.53 trillion federal budget for fiscal 2010. That the projected deficit over the next ten years would be greater than $10 trillion.

Would you have said, “Cmon that will never happen in America.”

5.  What if I had told you that the Obama Justice Department would order FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high-value detainees captured on the battlefield and held at US military detention facilities in Afghanistan. That Obama would order the closing of the Guantanamo detention facility with no plan for the disposition of the 200-plus individuals held there. That several of the suspected terrorists at Guantanamo   would be sent to live in freedom in Bermuda at the expense of the US Government. That some of our returning US Veterans would be labeled terrorists and put on a watch list.

Would you have said, “Cmon that will never happen in America.”

6.  What if I had told you that the federal government would seek powers to seize key companies whose failures could jeopardize the financial system. That a new regulatory agency would be proposed by Obama to control loans, credit cards, mortgage-backed securities, and other financial products offered to the public.

Would you have said, “Cmon that will never happen in America.”

7.  What if I had told you that Obama would travel to the Middle East, bow before the Saudi king, and repeatedly apologize for America’s past actions. That he would travel to Latin America where he would warmly greet Venezuela’s strongman Hugo Chavez and sit passively in the audience while Nicaraguan Marxist thug Daniel Ortega charged America with terrorist aggression in Central America.

Would you have said, “Cmon that will never happen in America.”

8.  Okay, now what if I were to tell you that Obama wants to dismantle conservative talk radio through the imposition of a new “Fairness Doctrine.” That he wants to curtail the First Amendment rights of those who may disagree with his policies via internet blogs, cable news networks, or advocacy ads. That most major network television and most newspapers will only sing his phrases like state-run media in communist countries?

Would you say, “Cmon that will never happen in America.”

9.  What if I were to tell you that the Obama Justice Department is doing everything it can to limit your Second  Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. That the federal government wants to reinstate the so-called assault weapons ban which would prohibit the sale of any type of firearm that does not require the shooter to pull the trigger every time a round is fired. That Obama’s Attorney General wants to eliminate the sale of virtually all handguns and ammunition, which most citizens choose for self-defense.

Would you say, “Cmon that will never happen in America.”

10.  What if I were to tell you that the Obama plan is to eliminate states rights guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment and give the federal government sweeping new powers over policies currently under the province of local and state governments and voted on by the people. That Obama plans to control the schools, energy production, the environment, health care, and the wealth of every US Citizen.

Would you say, “C’mon, that will never happen in America.”

11.  What if I were to tell you that the president, the courts, and the federal government have ignored the US Constitution and have seized powers which the founders of our country fought to restrict. That our last presidential election may have been our last truly free election for some time to come. That our next presidential election may look similar to the one recently held in Iran.  (And maybe under review by ACORN.)

I know – I know what you will say. That will never happen in America .

Hopefully you realize the significance of taking the census away from the Commerce Department and placing it under the White House, where Acorn has been given broad authority to manage it.

“The 2010 election cycle is just around the corner. We must redouble our efforts to educate our fellow citizens, recruit and support liberty candidates, and marshal our resources for the battle ahead.” – Ron Paul

You Can’t Make The Wind Blow, But You Can Set Your Sails In Preparation….

A couple of years ago, I would’ve laughed this kind of writing off as “conspiracy theorist” stuff.  Today, I look in disbelief at how quickly all of this has happened and am AMAZED at how the Constitution is completely disregarded while we all watch our Country being dismantled before our eyes!  I believe this is all true.  Watch closely and be alert!  Be ready to defend our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights.  It will be subtle, like the so-called “Fairness Doctrine”.  Scary, indeed!

PROFILING – Get a Clue Washington!

January 19, 2010

A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality. Absolutely No Profiling!

No, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people… They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

Footnote: Fort Hood Texas,2009: another Muslim, 39 years old killed 13 people and wounded 30 some odd others. Does this fit the profile!

NOW OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF IS TELLING EVERYONE THAT THE YOUNG MUSLIM THAT ATTEMPTED TO BLOW UP A NORTHWEST/DELTA JET AS IT APPROACHED DETROIT ON CHRISTMAS DAY WAS (QUOTE) “AN ISOLATED INCIDENT”.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE SH*TTING ME!  MY FRIEND’S FATHER USED TO SAY: “PLEASE DON’T PISS ON MY LEG AND TELL ME IT’S RAINING.”

We have had our American rights to enjoy an airline trip taken away because of a couple of Muslim fanatics with a death wish! We must now subject ourselves to ridiculous delays at the checkpoints, removing our shoes, belts etc.  We can no longer carry a bottle of water or a soda with us to enjoy on our flight. We can’t have shampoo or aftershave in our bag unless it’s in a microscopic bottle.  And so much for grandma and her talent for needlepoint or crocheting! No crochet hooks or 1/4″ sewing scissors – God forbid – 86-year-old granny might highjack the plane to Barstow!

If only the government agencies could only work together and share information between themselves (what a concept), instead of thinking they are so self-important, that they are the only one that can protect the public.  This includes the allied security agencies and in other countries too. This one fact alone could have prevented the Christmas incident with the tighty-whitey terrorist! I suppose next we’ll be either stripping down or being subjected to dogs sniffing everyone’s butt before boarding a flight.

When is the government going to wake up and get a clue! It’s time to call a spade, a spade! Or a terrorist a terrorist! Get over yourselves, find some cojones and quit being afraid of being called a profiler! It’s the Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40 that are the terrorists, not grandma, not the girl’s volleyball team, and certainly not the 8-year-old boy who happens to have the same name as someone on the watch list.  And the Muslim Imams that were removed from a flight for suspicious behavior; if they can’t sit in their assigned seats and be quiet during the flight and not cause a commotion, too bad! They can take a bus to their destination, or go back to whatever middle-east country they came from. We as an American people are tired of your crap. Either you behave and act in a civil manner or get the heck out of here.
