He is going through a spending spree that serves to crowd out the private market. Obama wants to crush the private market--just as the liberal Democrats in Congress crushed the financial and automobile industries--so that he can nationalize them.
He wants to crush the health care industry with new regulations and by subsidizing the government-run model--to a point in which individuals will one day be forced into a government-run health care monopoly, one in which individuals will not have choices, seniors will be "sacrificed" through a lack of care, and new innovations (such as new drugs) would disappear overnight.
He is running trillion dollar deficits that will serve to encourage the Federal Reserve to start printing more money, which will cause the type of hyperinflation that is often seen in Third World nations.
Then, to cement his rule, he is hoping to legalize the millions of illegal aliens, who, due to their illiteracy, poverty, and inability to assimilate into American society, will be reliable votes for the Democrat Party. These are dangerous times. We Republicans must oppose all of this. Obama's plans are not typical positions for a person in power to hold. These are radical stances that are far outside the American mainstream. He is not constrained at all by the United States Constitution or the fact that public opinion disagrees with many of his ideological goals. He doesn't care. The man is on a mission, and he is out there to destroy the private sector.

A mere 24 hours ago, Guantanamo Bay detainee Binyam Mohamed landed in England - a free man. Mohamed was captured in Pakistan in April, 2002, and has admitted to training at various Al-Qaeda training camps and is alleged to have plotted multiple attacks on American soil.
Included in his laundry list of terrorist activities are:
- Training at various Al-Qaeda training camps, where he specialized in firearms and explosives
- Being taught by senior Al-Qaeda leaders how to falsify documents
- Receiving money by Al-Qaeda leaders to travel to the United States
- Tasked by senior Al-Qaeda leaders to blow up high-rise apartment buildings in the United States
- Holding meetings with Saif al Adel (a top level al Qaeda planner and leader) and Khalid Sheik Mohammed (9/11 mastermind)

We have long held that Democrats believe that the American people are too stupid and incompetent to spend their own money properly. This is mainly because Americans would prefer to earn and invest their money by spending it buying homes, cars, eating at good restaraunts, whereas Democrats would prefer to spend it on condoms for kids, fixing the Department of Agriculture building, adding new furniture for the Department of Labor, and all sorts of other wasteful uses of tax dollars. However, in this clip, you can see that Democrat Sen. John Kerry truly believes that he should be the one who spends your money. He shows utter contempt for you and believes that your money is better spent when it is in his hands because he has superior wisdom over where this money should be spent.
He says that if a businessman or an individual has more of their own money, "there is no guarantee that the individual will invest their money." So what!? It is their money! Does the government "invest" the money when it renovates the Department of Agriculture's building?
"So government, yes, government--has the ability to be able to make a decision that the private sector would not necessarily make today," Democrat Sen. John Kerry states.
Yes, I think that John Kerry is quite right on this point. Most Americans would indeed far prefer to buy a bigger house, a new car, higher-quality food at Whole Foods, perhaps a trip to Las Vegas, as opposed to the wish list of odd ball things that John Kerry has in mind, such as condoms for kids, renovation of government buildings, giving away money to people who do not pay taxes, and creating a computer database for computerized health care data so Washington bureaucrats can learn about your health care history. Yes, I think that the people have different ideas on how to spend their money.

Here is a sample of some of the new taxes that California's socialist Democrats have conjured up.
- Vehicle license fees would nearly double, going from the current rate of 0.65% to 1.15% of the value of a car or truck.
- The sales tax would increase by 1 cent, raising the rate in Los Angeles County to 9.75%.
- Gasoline taxes would increase by 12 cents a gallon.
- And Californians would pay a new surcharge on their personal income taxes, amounting to 2.5% of their total tax bills (this is a tax on your tax!)

Just think about what Obama has done in only about two weeks in office:
• He signed an Executive Order to close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center.
• He ordered the to find ways to cut our Defense Budget by over 10%
• He appointed Tony West as Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division of
the . West was the lawyer for the American
Taliban, John Walker Lindh.
• He dropped charges against U.S.S. Cole bombing mastermind in the military
trials being held at Guantanamo Bay.
• He ordered all military commissions trying terrorists to be halted.
• He has ended aggressive interrogation methods by the military and our
intelligence agencies to get valuable information.
And this is only a partial list!
President Obama had a rally today in Ft. Myers, Florida, during which he met with people who do not want to help themselves, but rather believe that the government is there to get them a home, a new kitchen, a new bathroom, increase their income, find them a new job, etc. These citizens are children and want to be dependent upon government handouts. They are losers. One woman, Henrietta Hughes, asked for a house from Obama! Obama could have said, "The federal government's purpose is not to steal money from one citizen to provide benefits to you. The purpose of the federal government is to protect your individual liberties so that you can go out in the world and start your own business or work for someone else." Instead, Obama pandered to the woman by falsely giving the impression that he was going to cure her economic situation, when he won't! These voters truly are expecting miracles from a politician, and these miracles will never materialize. No politician can ever provide you with all of your needs and wants. It is your job as a citizen to provide for your needs, wants, and long-term goals for the future. And why would you want to sit around and wait for President Obama to provide you with a house, a kitchen, and whatever else that you want? It is never going to happen if you sit at home and wait for some hack politician to provide these things for you.

Look at this clip from arrogant deplorable New York Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer. Mr. Schumer represents the worst type of politician: one who steals from his constituents and brags about how "the American people really don't care" about this abuse of the public treasury. Yes, Mr. Schumer, the people love paying taxes and "really don't care" if the politicians are transferring this money to their politically connected allies and friends. The American people don't mind being economic slaves to the Washington political class. Instead of being able to serve their own needs, living for their own benefit, they are perfectly fine sending their money to Washington so glib politicians can spend it on wasteful projects and announce that the people "really don't care." Philosophically, this is part of the collectivist mentality that suggests that people should live for another's sake, rather than their own. Sen. Schumer is suggesting that one should not earn a living for their own sake, but rather for the benefit of politicians. New Yorkers: If you can re-elect such a contemptible, low life politician like this, what does it say about you? It says you're a damn fool if you vote for this man again.

Republicans--this is a wake-up call: we want leaders who talk about our ideas and articulate them in a way that is appealing to the vast majority of the public. We do not want to elect people who will endlessly apologize for holding conservatives principles and make endlessly banal references about working with those who do not share these principles. Show determination! When our principles are on full display to the public, as in the case of President Ronald Reagan's re-election, we win huge (Reagan won nearly 60% of the vote in his campaign for re-election in 1984, as well as 49 states).

Recently I have decided to spend reading online postings made by those who have, at one point in time or another, been committed to a mental hospital. This is no easy task. I found one site where such postings are made on a fairly regular basis. It is called "Democrats Underground," which makes some sense since the views of Democrats tend to come from dead European socialists, who are "underground." In any case, one thing I noticed about these posters is that, even though their candidate for the president won the election, they are still incredibly anger and filled with rage. Even though Republicans are not in control of anything in Washington, the online, mentally disturbed crowd are still filled with rage and anger.
The one issue that many of these online deranged individuals seemed to be foaming at the mouth over is the Obama "stimulus" package--which is a scam. I read many of the postings and I can say with certainty that almost none of the posters on this site knew anything about economics. (Of course, what would you expect from a site that is populated with individuals discharged from a mental institution?) In any case, there were posts that argued that Republicans wanted to vote against the stimulus package only due to a desire to see the United States economy collapse as a result. First, let us think about how economies work. If merely passing legislation to steal $1 trillion from the part of the country that works and to hand the $1 trillion to the losers who work in the government and vote Democrat was the way to improve the economy, then North Korea and Cuba should be the most successful countries in the world. A lot of these posters do not realize that the government is not able to "create wealth" through an act of Congress. Government does not create wealth, but it can take measures to make wealth creation possible through having a military to protect against foreign threats; the police and emergency responders to protect one's individual rights; to have a stable currency as a store of value; as well as a court system that can allow parties to resolve individual differences through objective law. Secondly, we tried the stimulus plan in the 1930s as well as in 1990s Japan. The result is that in both situations, it created a lot of government debt, but the economy did not grow and unemployment remained high. Thirdly, over 200 mainstream economists have argued that the stimulus package is not going to help the economy. Fourth, if increasing government spending is the recipe for success, shouldn't the Democrats be thanking President George W. Bush for increasing the federal budget at a rapid pace?

President Obama spends a lot of time in the White House, and he says that he has become a bit tired of just spending $1 trillion every few weeks. He says that "it would be a lot more exciting if I was able to spend substantially more, especially because, by virtue of my education from Harvard, I am able to more wisely spend $9 trillion than 300 million Americans acting in pursuit of their self-interest." As a result, Obama has asked that individuals turn over 100% of their income above $30,000. A new IRS bill is pending to increase the size and scope of the IRS in order to chase the selfish Americans who actually believe that they are permitted to keep the income that they earn. "We need a new IRS bill in order to confiscate all income in excess of $30,000. This will stimulate the economy by hiring more workers at the IRS."
President Bush famously lowered the top marginal tax rate from 39.% to 35%. This was a mistake, says, President Obama. Philosophically, this would cause Americans to become more accustomed to taking care of their own interests, including raising their family, paying their bills (including their mortgage) on their own, and this would eventually result in Americans having less of an interest in government programs. "What we need to do is to condition Americans to be aware of the great benevolence of government workers and the programs they administer. People are just "not appreciate enough of how tirelessly government workers are thinking about the interests of the 300 million Americans they serve," said Obama. For instance, when government bureaucrats are not taking their twentieth coffee break of the day, occasionally they are downloading pornography, which is also a huge stimulus for the economy. President Obama also believes that Americans work far too much and have too many items in their homes. "We believe that by imposing this new 100% tax rate, we will make homes a lot more comfortable since there would be a lot less furniture and additional television sets and computers," President Obama said. After all, the public needs more IRS buildings, and it would be unfortunate to deny us the opportunity to hire more workers just because selfish Americans wanted to have more tasteless furniture in their homes.

The other issue of madness that I have noticed is the literal religious devotion towards Obama in this nation. Americans newspapers are starting to sound very similar to the North Korean communist and government-run press. For one thing, it was liberals who showed an incredible degree of nastiness over the last eight years of President George W. Bush's administration. Now liberals are stating that "[President Obama] needs the support of every American in this, because for better or worse, he’s now at the helm of the ship of state during a violent storm," says letter writer Jeff Cox in the NY Times. So under President Bush, liberals are supposed to show mindless rage, but now that Obama is president, "every American" must give up their natural desire to yell 'halt' to unlimited sums of new federal spending. Obama wins the election, and we're supposed to say that spending $1 trillion more in federal dollars is a natural development in a republic when one president leaves and a new president enters the stage. Perhaps the funniest letter to the editor in the NY Times was from a Edmund R. Schroeder, who states that he is a "registered Republican of more than 50 years." He expects us to think that he is a Republican when he issues a statement such as: "Let [Obama] govern, even if you think he’s making mistakes. Give him his chance. Acknowledge that, contrary to your beliefs, he just might be
right." What kind of opposition party states that a President may spend to oblivion under the banner of "give him a chance"? Also, why do you sound like such a wimp, Edmund R. Schroeder? We do not need to give him a chance. We know he is wrong because this strategy of spending unlimited sums of money has never worked in human history, whether it was during the big government growth era of FDR in the 1930s or 1990s Japan. In both cases, it failed. We do not need to spend another $1 trillion to learn whether Obama "might be right." He is wrong, and the House Republicans were right in voting no on this phony stimulus package.
