The Revolution of 2012

We did it July 4th, 1776; we can do November 6th, 2012.

 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present US Government is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

Since the signing of the constitution the progressive movement has attempted to re-write our founding document.  Piece by piece they have added more and larger control to a heavy handed centralized government.  On June 28th, 2012 the third and final branch of the US Government gave its approving nod to the destruction of state sovereignty.  Against the will of the people and against ideals that founded this country we have seen an act of betrayal the likes of which King George III would be proud.

For as our founding fathers refused to allow tyranny to dictate the land they loved, we also must refuse the tyranny of the US Government.  This November is the chance for revolution.  The battle lines are drawn.  Do you wish follow the failed course of socialism in favor of the fabled state of equality no country has ever attained?  Or do you want the country that through self determination, hard work and personal responsibility has carried the world for the last 225 years?

We have been told that holding ideals such as personal responsibility and self determination were archaic and backwards.   We have been told that progress comes through the government determination of what is equality.  We have been told that our constitution is living document up for interpretation based on the whims of the ruling class.  All the while the progressive systems crumble around us. 

Take your American ideals and fight for your country.  Either we are United States of American or we return to a colonial oppression under a government more concerned with its own political power then desires of its people.

I recently ran into an example of just that, Denise. Had an injury, went to CSM on the east side of Milwaukee and was hit up immediately for $250 once they verified I was insured. When I needed further treatment for the same injury a week later I went, instead, to CSM in Ozaukee County. No such charge. Talking to one of the nurses there about the service I received on the East Side I was told I had been put into an area that predominantly serves people who walk in with cold and flu symptoms and have no ability to pay for the service. A good number just get up and leave before they're discharged. This is part of the problem I have with further intrusion into the healthcare field by the government. There is very little realistic concern for the unintended consequences of what seems, on the surface, to be the right thing to do. "Stabilizing" a patient now includes, apparently, treating anything and everything that walks in the door, whether it needs treatment or not. Nobody in a position to make decisions on this stuff is held accountable for negative results and the expenses associated with them. Just stick it, once again, to those whom it is assumed can afford to pay.

@Brian Dey...I don't disagree that we'll always have a certain segment that always will be in poverty. However, we don't have to accept that it is a continuous generational condition that force and maintain an underclass culture. People do go through bad times and if those conditions don't change then the problems persist. For those who criticize the culture of poverty, need to begin to understand the complexity of the problem. Bettering themselves has to be a process with the proper incentives and penalties closely supervised. The very minimum that all citizens are entitled to is healthy food, adequate shelter, clothing, an education and healthcare. There is nothing wrong with demanding that the healthy and able work in exchange for their benefits. Most likely in community work projects. Your bandying about this notion that everyone who finds themselves in this underclass is because of their bad choices is just plain incorrect. People find themselves in these circumstances for all sort of reasons. You claim that everyone who are in this group are part of the undeserving poor, this couldn't be further from the truth. The approach that you and others that share your view is like the immature adolescent who wants absolute freedom to make decisions and to take actions based on only their desires and wants. The government works as a super parent to contain those actions that are detrimental to society.

Sounds pretty much like King Obama and his hench man Eric Holder. Don't like a law, don't enforce it; or better yet, declare it by the King's decree as invalid.

Lyle, I had to do a little research on American Exceptionalism. Do you really think using a Stalinist term really is the right way to describe your opposition? The Conservatives I know do not believe that just because you have "success in one area means success in another". What we do believe is that if you are a successful businessperson that has created jobs and wealth, that you are capable of creating more jobs if egregious regulations are lifted and you are allowed to make logical, productive choices in your business. And I do believe if you are successful in business, then you are likely to be successful in public service. If the founding father's truly believed "the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are divinely written and are too sacrosanct to be changed", why did they build in a mechanism for change? You may believe the American dream is a myth, but I believe that despite being kicked in the teeth, it is alive and just waiting to be unchained by the Feds!!!
