The United States Postal Service is a Failure. Privatize it.

The United States Postal Service lost $3.8 billion dollars for this fiscal year.  Isn't it great that we have given this government agency a monopoly over mail?  Think about this for a moment:  despite the fact that competition with the United States Postal Services' first class mail monopoly is a federal crime, it still is not able to turn a profit!  Imagine that! 

The Postal Service exists for one purpose alone: to provide union jobs for government employees.  Of course, the other reason is that this present (Democrat) Congress does not believe in liberty and does not like the idea of anyone challenging an iron-clad government monopoly.  This is important to keep in mind because once the "government option" (ephetistaically referred to as the "public option" in the health care debate) becomes the law of the land, Congress will also resist any effort to open up competition with a failed government agency.  We do not expect privatization efforts to succeed with this Democrat-controlled Congress, but now is the best time to campaign on a platform of privatization of the United States Postal Service. 

American voters do not believe in man-made global warming.

Does anyone believe in global warming anymore?  Everywhere we go, we see signs at retrailers promising "green" products.  Politicians propose programs that will "create" so-called "green jobs."  (What is a green job?  Installing expensive, hazardous lightbulbs that do not properly illuminate houses?)

  For those of us who sometimes wonder if we live in an irrational, anti-scientific era, there is some promising news.  According to Rasmussen Reports polling, 47% of the nation's voters believe that changes in climate are due to "planetary trends."  Only 37% believe that humans are the cause of any changes in the world's climate.   The idea that humans can change the Earth's climate has always striked us nothing more than the projection of superhuman powers onto mere mortals.  Of course, the real reason for the global warming myth has been an excuse to transfer power and wealth from millions of Americans to the Statists, who have an insatiable appetite for control.

The United States has always been defined as a beacon for freedom. Freedom is under threat in the USA!

"We should never despair, our Situation before has been unpromising and has changed for the better, so I trust, it will again. If new difficulties arise, we must only put forth new Exertions and proportion our Efforts to the exigency of the times." --George Washington, letter to Philip Schuyler, 1777

The United States has always been a unique nation precisely because of its founding principles. From the beginning, it has attracted friends of liberty like a magnet, while at the same time being the target of all those who oppose liberty. This group has consisted in various times the British Empire, Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan, the Islamofascist regime of Iran, and others. Today, the greatest threat to liberty comes from within.

The enemies of freedom work in our highest positions of power--from the Presidency, to the Speaker of the House, and the Majority Leader of the US Senate. Obama wants to restrict your ability to reach your economic potential by redistributing your wealth to those who are parasites--the non-producers.

Obama believes that you should look to the government when it comes to major economic transactions, whether it is receiving health care, buying a home, attending school, or starting a business. 

Take the issue of health care in America:  the debate over health care has very little to do with 'health care' and everything about empowering Washington to control every aspect of our economy, including medicine.

This Saturday, the Democrats in the United States Senate voted to "proceed" with a debate on the health care takeover.  This did not happen easily.  In order to get there,  Harry Reid bribed US Senator Marry L. Landrieu with $300 million dollars for her home state. 

If the American people had an opportunity to vote on this bill, it would lose in a landslide.  According to Rasmussen, only 38% of Americans support the governmentalization of health care.  It's easy to understand why Americans do not want this bill to pass.  It increases taxes on literally everyone.  It gives bureaucrats the authority to determine what every health insurance policy must include.  This will raise costs, and thus, only result in more people being uninsured.  Of course, the Democrats tax the uninsured, which is quite astonishing.  The idea that such an atrocious bill could be imposed upon the people in a free country is frightening indeed.  Are we still a free country?  The American people need to rise up and say no way--not now, and not ever! 

George Washington's statement, made above, shows that while our situation is certainly difficult, we have faced difficult situations in the past, and if we "put forth new Exertions and proportion our Efforts to the exigency of the times," we will overcome these obstacles that the Obama Democrats have imposed on us.

Democrats are driving a Ferrari on the road towards socialism. Americans want to hit the brakes.

Democrats are more determined than ever to push through the federal takeover of health care. Citizens have faxed, e-mailed, and phoned their elected representative; attended tea parties, townhall meetings, protested on DC, met with Members of Congress, voted heavily for Republican Governors of NJ and Virginia in November, and yet, Democrats in Congress are even more determined to press forward with health care fascism and socialism.

Democrats do not believe that citizens should be able to exchange their wealth for a doctor's services. Instead, Democrats want to confiscate the wealth of citizens, transfer it to a bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., and control the doctor by imposing regulations, taxes, and mandates on what they are able to do in their day to day practice.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "has reportedly told fellow Democrats that she's prepared to lose seats in 2010 if that's what it takes to pass ObamaCare," according to, part of the Wall Street Journal. If health care 'reform' (which we'll call destruction) is so great, then why would a majority party do something that it knows will result in losing a large number of seats in the federal legislature? It is not because the people want it. They don't. It is not because they want to do what is good for the people. All of the evidence from around the world suggests that such legislation will result in higher costs, the denial of care, and lower quality health services.

The only plausible answer that one can arrive at is that the Democrats are trying to impose socialist health care because they believe that it is the best way to turn the country into a socialist, third-world country.
