Lima-Tango-Delta

Lima-Tango-Delta, in the NATO phonetic alphabet, stands for the letters “LTD”.  For our texters out there, this is an acronym for Living The Dream.

This is a new column dedicated to the words of our young men and women who are serving, and the words of wisdom from those who have served – straight from the people who we are defending our country and our liberty.

We are looking for contributors, and we can’t wait to share the words of our men and women who are serving our country.

Please email us at:  goodamericanpost@gmail.com, and put “LTD” in the subject-line.

From The Good American Post – THANK YOU FOR FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM.

For Food & Liberty-Lovers

By Tisha Casida

I am an avid Michelle Malkin fan, and her post on Garden-Gate was just phenomenal.  I believe in local food systems, organic agriculture, and being able to produce your own food.  I think that knowing how to grow food is the essence of being an American, and the Victory Gardens literally sprouting up around the nation are fabulous.

I am ready for real food, a real government with real representatives, and the kind of “real” liberty that we had when our Constitution was signed.  REAL – I want real, and that includes a president and an administration that is not full of…. full of lies, deception, and fakery that is disturbing and insulting to this American citizen.

Liberty, Activism, & Leadership

By Tisha Casida

Having the opportunity to currently study leadership, as well as work with activist groups and organizations in the name of “liberty”, it should be noted that we are all fighting for the same thing, and that it is very important and very necessary to work together to achieve a common goal.

The movement of “change” – first initiated by a presidential campaign, and now an inherent part of real changes and additions to our operations as an economy and country – is something that has been created and something that we can deal with – AS CONSUMERS, AS CONSTITUENTS, and as CITIZENS.

WE THE PEOPLE are the future, and it is up to us to work together in the name of LIBERTY and FREE MARKETS.  It does not matter if you are a republican, a democrat, an independent, a libertarian, or a constitutionalist.  This is about the United States of America, and each of us, as citizen leaders (Couto, 1995) play a part.

We must all support each other – organizations like American Liberty Alliance, are doing just that.  Check them out at: http://americanlibertyalliance.com/objective/

Congressional Reform Act of 2010

We are not sure who first wrote or posted this, but we received such in an email, and wanted to share with our readership.

1. Term Limits: 12 years only, one of the possible options below.

A. Two Six year Senate terms
B. Six Two year House terms
C. One Six year Senate term and three Two Year House terms Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

2.  No Tenure / No Pension: 

    A congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

3.  Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security: All funds in the Congressional retirement fund moves to the Social Security system immediately.

All future funds flow into the Social Security system, Congress participates with the American people. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, server your term(s), then go home and back to work.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan just as all Americans.

    Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.  Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned  citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

6. Congress looses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

8. All contracts with past and present congressmen are void effective 1/1/2011.  

    The American people did not make this contract with congressmen, congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned  citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

Farm Wars – Natural vs. Genetically Engineered Crops

By: Tisha Casida

In a story posted on Farm Wars, it appears that a case will be take all the way to the Supreme Court, to determine the safety of Genetically Engineered (GE) crops.  The GE crops’ parent, Monsanto, has been under fire from the Center for Food Safety (CFS).

You can see the story posted here:  http://farmwars.info/?p=2258

There has been much debate about the safety of GE crops, especially the impacts on natural ecological and biological cycles.  There is research abound on the topic, a quick search on Google Scholar will bring up some of the debate. A good place to start for some data and research on the safety of genetically engineered foods can be found in Food Toxicology (Engeseth, 2001)

America's Right

For Freedom

We are facing history, tomorrow, January 19, 2010.  With a special election and a seat that may tell the future of “health care reform” in our great country, it is important to remember where we are, how we got here, and where we need to go.

Education and Common Sense?

By: Tisha Casida

In an article published at the Cato Institute, we have yet another example of backwards politicking versus intelligent and progressive actions that have positive benefits to society.  http://www.cato-at-liberty.org/2010/01/13/head-starts-impact-evanescent-hhs-study/

Government-programs for education have come up short, again, and instead of looking at the actual problem, more money is thrown at it.  No where in the FREE-MARKET would you see more money thrown at a failing enterprise (oh wait, except for the billions of dollars for TARP -click on this link to catch-up on the bailout hoopla from Michelle Malkin).

This is what is backwards – there are NO INCENTIVES for success and there are NO PUNISHMENTS for failures – even in the education-system.  What can we do to change this?  Start taking more RESPONSIBILITY for educating our kids and our students.  And start doing everything in your power to protect our liberty.  The last people we want educating our kids is Uncle “Sam” and his minions.

In Sickenss & In Health by Taxes

Unquestionably, there is progress.  The average American now pays out twice as much in taxes as he formerly got in wages.  ~H.L. Mencken

Here at The Good American Post, we believe in less taxes.  Why?  The government is getting quite a bit of money from us taxpayers already, and they have not done a great job of budgeting this.  They haven’t even done a bad job – it is actually criminal what they have done.

The current health care bill raises taxes on people that our current administration promised to protect.  See a great synopsis of the debate going on right now at: Americans for Tax Reform.
