Liberty and Tyranny

By Nate LaClaire —  October 23, 2009 — Leave a comment

When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty. -Thomas Jefferson

Spoken by someone who knew what he was talking about.

Newt Gingrich’s American Solutions has put together a list of Twelve American Solutions for Jobs and Prosperity. The list includes responsible actions on the part of the government, as opposed to the childish spending package that Congress is about to vote on. Things such as a payroll tax stimulus, reducing taxes on the middle class, providing homeowner’s assistance, investing in American energy, protecting the rights of workers, controlling government spending, and abolishing the death tax are all true improvements that will help "We, the People," unlike the pork-filled American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Please join me in getting the word out! It is time that we speak out! Click the link below for more details.

Washington solutions of more money for more government, more power for politicians, more debt, and more bureaucrats will not lead to real growth in jobs and prosperity.

We need a clear and decisive alternative that creates jobs and rewards work, saving, and investment.

Maybe, next time, Timothy Geithner should pay an accountant. Or take a simple computer course.

You gotta love this report from Fox News. This guy can’t figure out how to use TurboTax and President Obama wants him in charge of the Treasury? How is that logical?

The treatment President Bush has received from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have. The president is not to blame for all these problems. He never lost faith in America or her people, and has tried his hardest to continue leading our nation during a very difficult time.

Yes! Someone gets it! This is a sad article, but well worth reading. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

I’m not a fan of The Onion, but this was too good to pass up.

Revealing the truth

Barack Obama is not a Muslim … and Sarah Palin did not order books banned from the library when she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska … Heard that Obama was really born in Kenya and thus not eligible to be president? Wrong. Heard that Palin was a member of the Alaska Independence Party? Nope, she wasn’t.

CNN has posted an article about the rumors regarding the presidential candidates that are circulating the Internet and the candidates’ efforts to rebut them. Very interesting! Read the article here.

Also take a look at Barack Obama’s birth certificate. It would have been nice if the candidate’s site provided a copy that actually looked legit. Not that I wouldn’t love to learn that Obama is not qualified to become president. Am I the only one who thinks that image doesn’t look like a scanned paper document?

By the way, yes, the rumors are true: I am voting for McCain-Palin. I am not a fan of John McCain, but am really not a fan of Barack Obama and I think Sarah Palin’s pretty cool.

A national defense analyst says President Bush should be commended for keeping quiet about a discovery that could have blown his critics out of the water.

Now that’s news! Read the full story.

Dave Ramsey on Socialism in America

By Nate LaClaire —  September 23, 2007

In this radio clip from July 2007, Dave takes on socialism in America, promotes the flat tax, explains why he calls himself a “sanctified capitalist,” and tells us how to protect ourselves from socialism. I heard this clip on the radio and am excited that it’s been made available online. Good stuff!
