WALLBUILDERS – Know Your History

In an interesting interview with Glenn Beck, founder of WallBuilders, David Barton, discussed the “Black Regiment” which later became known as the “Black Robe Brigade”.  We’ll give you the links, so that you can read at-length, however the conclusion of his conversation with Beck is what is so important to remember.

Our country was built upon the concept of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS.  This is very different from COLLECTIVE RIGHTS.  Individual rights allow for individuals to have freedom to do what they like, as long as they are not hurting anyone else.  Collective rights, as we are witnessing more and more, can quickly tromp the rights of the individual for the rights of “the greater good”.

Although Americans, in general, are kind and giving people who really DO care about the collective (and take care of the collective using a free market and paying certain taxes), that does not mean in any way shape or form should be be forced into taking care of the collective.

Individual rights are considered God-given rights that each of us has to take care of our body, mind, and spirit.  When these are taken away, be become slaves to a system – probably one of governance.

Know your history, be a patriot, and stand up for this great country and the principles she was founded upon.

OPINION: Unsustainable Debt

Another story about the amount and unsustainable nature of the amount of debt our country is incurring and will continue to incur in the President’s 2011 budget is not revisited.

How is it possible that the leaders of this country knowingly pass budgets that cannot be paid for?  And why in the world would some of these folks thinks that a TAX (value-added tax) would be the “cure” to raising more revenues when people are struggling beyond belief now?

The solution is to stop spending money we don’t have!  That is certainly what they would tell me and my company if I were doing what they are doing.  And doesn’t it sound so simple yet “they” would tell you how complex it is and tell you that such a move would be impossible and hurt us?  IT WILL HURT US NO MORE THAN IF WE CRUSH OUR ENTIRE ECONOMY.  As a matter of fact, we should wipe the slate clean and start over.

I am not an economist, I am not an “expert” in fiscal policy, I am not a politician.  I am an American and a small-business owner.  I think these guys should stop the income tax (which is arguably illegal anyway) (and so many people already DON’T PAY) (ever notice how honesty and working hard doesn’t pay off?), institute a flat-tax, and let people WORK, let people interact with a truly free-market.  Drastic times call for drastic measures – that does not mean catapulting over 300 million people into a unsustainable future with more taxes and more debt.

There MUST be a solution, and it is up to us the American people to find leadership to institute such, as well as become leaders ourselves.

How to Organize a Tea-Party

It has been many moons since sitting down at a tea-party with my little friends (at the time), although it is that type of comity and friendship that brings people together in times like these.

Governor Schwarzenegger’s remarks about the Tea-Parties disappearing are not hard to believe.  The reason is because people think that this is a one-time frustration with the system, and as most humans (and Americans) operate, that frustration soon goes away (or we become complacent).

However, it would be great to prove the people wrong who think that the Tea-Party movement will just “go away.”  The reason is that the movement is not about politics – it is about our RESPONSIBILITY as Americans, as constituents, and as consumers.  It is about EVERYTHING, and because WE THE PEOPLE are the foundation of this great Country, we cannot just “stop” when things look good.  We must continue to be vigilant, and never go back to the complacency that got us here in the first place.

How do you organize a Tea Party?  Well, we keep the grass-roots activism alive, you support grass-roots organizations, and you support local media outlets that are dedicated to the cause.  And, you don’t stop.  Ever.
