Question Our Government With Boldness

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution reads, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Everyone knows that power left unchecked can turn very ugly, very rapidly. For all Americans it is very important that we continue to question our government with boldness, especially now that there's a Liberal "super majority" in Congress. Temporarily however, after the death of Ted Kennedy, the Democrat-led super-majority is no more; that is, until the corrupt powers that be simply reverse a law to allow the 60th seat to be filled sooner than later in the U.S. Senate - a law first enacted to keep Republicans from potentially filling the seat if John Kerry were elected president in 2004. Funny how this "law" works, its only use is to keep Republicans out and Democrats in power. If the law favors Conservatives? "Simply change it," lawmakers say.

"Republicans also may be less likely to get a chance to run in a January election. Though Massachusetts law currently requires a special election within 145-160 days after a Senate seat becomes vacant, state lawmakers are considering reversing the 2004 law that Ted Kennedy himself proposed to require a vote rather than a gubernatorial appointment.

At the time, Democrats were worried that then-Republican Gov. Mitt Romney would be able to fill any vacancy created if Democratic Sen. John Kerry were elected president."

Regardless of the corruption, I'm still going to use my First Amendment right to question with boldness. To Congress, the U.S. government, I have questions that you need to answer.

First, why the rush on health care reform, cap-and-trade?

Luckily, cap-and-trade can be reversed; unfortunately, forcing Americans to pay for universal healthcare, called "public option," this is damage to the nation that cannot be overturned. Once the government forces its people to rely on it, especially with health care, this is a scar that will last forever, and with it there will be debt that will forever-never be paid. It is all the more likely that Obamacare would become similarly like the ponzi scheme that is Social Security. We all know Social Security is a big Ponzi scheme, one can only imagine the debt and problems that will come with Obamacare.

Next question is about the Apollo Alliance. The Apollo Alliance claimed credit for writing the stimulus bill; why was this group allowed to write any portion of this bill?

What role did the Apollo Alliance play in crafting bills? Does the president know the co-founder of the Weather Underground is a board member of the Apollo Alliance?

If politicians aren’t writing the bills and aren’t reading the bills, do they have any idea what these 1,000-page plus bills actually impose on the American people?

Nancy Pelosi called naysayers to Obama's health-care agenda "un-American." So I have to ask: why are you called "grassroots" if you are for Obama's agenda, but "Astroturf" if you are against? Is dissent and freedom of speech no longer patriotic?

Who are the "Special Advisors" to President Obama?

Green jobs "czar" Van Jones, he's an avowed communist and radical activist who co-founded the communist group STORM — a group that describes themselves and their activities as:

"We upheld the Marxist critique of capitalist exploitation. We agree with Lenin's analysis of the state and the party. And we found inspiration and guidance in the insurgent revolutionary strategies developed by third world revolutionaries like Mao Tse-Tung and Amilcar Cabral."

How did Van Jones, a self-proclaimed communist, become a special adviser to the president?

Did President Obama know of Van Jones’ radical political beliefs when he named him special adviser?

Should a communist have the ear of the president of the United States?

And who is FCC Cheif Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd? This guy actually lamented the fact that non-state-run radio stations prevented the "incredible" revolution in Venezuela.

Ronald Reagan once said, "...back in 1927 an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism the American people will adopt every fragment of the socialist program."

The history of the United States of America is of historical awesomeness, which holds meaning and value, and its citizens have a deep-rooted love for the country. Yet it unfortunately appears like our history is disliked, abandoned, and possibly unknown by our current president Barack Obama. His actions suggest so; his words however contradict those action, lie after lie. Actions cannot lie.

Check out an interesting history lesson in law, The Smith Act of 1940. The accusations charged against eleven defendants were that "they conspired ... to organize as the Communist Party and willfully to advocate and teach the principles of Marxism-Leninism," which the government alleged to mean "overthrowing and destroying the government of the United States..." They were also accused of conspiring to "publish and circulate ... books, articles, magazines, and newspapers advocating the principles of Marxism-Leninism," again interpreted by the prosecution. Seem eerily relevant to what's going on today? It shouldn't. But it does. Makes me wonder if Glenn Beck is onto something...
