Every problem we face today has evolved from We The People who have forgotten our teachings regarding history, of those who fought so determined, and absolute, for the freedoms, and liberties, that we so easily take for granted everyday.

What do we know about those who fought so hard to change those ways,and what we teach our children?What about the ones who have spent a lifetime really screwing up those valued principles? I'm not just talking about the changes in the last fifty years or so.I'm talking about, just how far back do these roots grow? I've always understood it, if you want to fix something, that you need to get to the root of the problem.

Lets not confuse this people, I mean every *single* problem here now, on this big o platter of life we're living today, stems from our neglect to DO WHAT WAS RIGHT FOR THE BETTERMENT of this country, and its people. Think about what I'm saying.! Had everyone, or at least one person of every family, taught, or just reminded others in their immediate families of the importance to pass it on;

Patrick Henry :

"Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Beside, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of Nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us."
War is Inevitable, March 1775.


James Madison :

"The ultimate authority...resides in the people alone."

"It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of citizens and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution.
The freemen of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle. We revere this lesson too much ...to forget it."


Samuel Adams :

"The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards."


John Adams :

"People and nations are forged in the fires of adversity."

"Wherever the standard of freedom and independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will be America's heart, her benedictions and prayers, but she goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator of her own."


Alexander Hamilton :

"The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature by the hand of the Divinity itself, and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power."


Benjamin Franklin :

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."


George Washington :

"I hope I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man."


Thomas Jefferson :

"On every question of construction of the Constitution, let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed."

Do we fully understand what they were saying here?... Do we remember what they did?... Can you really imagine the tyranny they were so hell bent on changing, and why?..Everything these ancestors did... was for US! When did we stop teaching about the event, the time in life, that was only second, or maybe the third most important event in the history of all mankind? Like I have written in other articles, all you have to do is ask WHY. I believe that the Birth of Christ, was number 1, the Resurrection, number two. The Revolutionary War,number 3.THE BIRTH OF THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH...

Obama throwing black supporters under the bus

Jack Kemp
I have a suggestion for Gov. David Paterson of New York, recently asked by an associate of Barack Obama to not run for election (not reelection, as he became Governor when Eliot Spitzer resigned) for the office of New York Governor. I have to admire Gov. Paterson's courage to stand up for himself, even though I don't agree with his politics, nor do I commend his record as Governor of New York.

William Katz at Urgent Agenda has said:

"What's a president to do? Now, it's true, Obama has a history of throwing friends under the bus and embracing enemies, so maybe this doesn't upset him all that much. But the other friends have gone under the bus willingly. Paterson is pulling a Rosa Parks."

I would suggest that Gov. Paterson take this verbal comparison to the next step by making a trip to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, and having a press conference alongside one of the Museum's most famous exhibits, the Rosa Parks Bus. Yes, he could stand beside the actual Montgomery, Alabama, bus on which the late Ms. Parks refused to give up her seat to a (more politically powerful) white person in December 1955, leading to her removal and arrest - and sparking of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

Pres. Obama has no more moral authority to tell David Patterson not to run than the white bus driver had in telling Rosa Parks to give up her seat. In so doing, Obama shows that he is head not of the Democratic Party or its Black Caucus, but head of the Obama Party and its Obama Family Caucus. He is a politician and not a statesman and has set a precedent for other Democrats, some of them closet racists, to go to black elected officials and tell them to step down in tough election races "for the good of the Party." The other officials can now say, "Well, Pres. Obama said it to Gov. Patterson (who may well lose his bid for the governorship), so it is acceptable behavior."

When the Jamaican bobsled team went to the Winter Olympics in 1988, they knew they had less of a chance of winning a medal than Gov. Patterson has of being elected Governor of New York. But they didn't quit and go home. Wikipedia notes that:

"There, the Jamaican four sled stunned many of their critics by finishing in 14th place, ahead of the United States, Russia, France and Italy.[5]

In 2000 the Jamaicans won the Gold medal at the World Push Bobsled Championships."

What Barack Obama doesn't understand is how one advances in truly competitive situations in the real world. You have to be willing to fall flat on your face a few times -- in public -- before you learn from your experiences.

In life, it's not how many times you fall down, it's how many times you get up.

Barack Obama, pre-selected for office in Chicago's political system, reminds me of the 1919 Black Socks team. For most of his short career, he never experienced what it takes to struggle for something in the real world without the fix being in. Running against Hillary Clinton and the charismatically challenged John McCain were real competitions, granted, but they came rather late in his political career. They were not part of his formative experience, as can be seen in what has happened since his election as president. He has poorly managed domestic (an unformed health care plan that frightens seniors) and foreign (the UN speech) policies, and race relations (Prof. Gates in Cambridge) like a man "who was born on third base (at Wrigley or US Cellular Field) and thought he hit a triple."

Gov. Patterson has worked his way up through the political system to earn election as a State Senator and then the Lt. Governor, being in a position to benefit from former Gov. Spitzer's problems. I never heard of him voting present on a majority of bills from the time he entered the New York State Senate in 1985 until the time he became Senate Minority Leader in 2003. He did this while overcoming a childhood optic nerve condition that left him legally blind. I'm glad he has decided to not step down because some politician who derides Special Olympics athletes on national television thinks it is good for that politician for Patterson to quit.

Even if Gov. Patterson loses his bid for election, he will go out a winner. That is something that Pres. Obama can't abide in other people -- and an attitude that other people can't abide in Pres. Obama.
