1. Obama "bailed out" Wall Street by taking equity stakes in some of the largest financial institutions in the country and then turned them over to his buddies, the unions.
2. Obama took over GM & Chrysler, fired the CEO of GM (where is that authority in the constitution?), gave majority ownership, not to the share holders to whom GM owed, but to the unions, even giving them seats on the board of directors.
3. Obama has appointed a former union member to head the New York Bank of the Federal Reserve.
4. Obama, or at the very least, his supporters, are sending “paid” volunteers (the SEIU thugs) to town hall meetings to “show support for healthcare” and to harass and intimidate citizens showing up wanting answers. Does anyone remember your history? Didn’t Mussolini send his “brown shirts” out to do exactly the same thing, quash resistance to his fascist regime? These are SEIU “purple shirts”.
5. Obama is pushing as hard as he can to assume control of the U.S. healthcare system, which represents not only 16% of GDP, but also represents an avenue into controlling EVERY aspect of our lives all in the name of keeping down healthcare costs. Coke and Pepsi ought to be fighting this right along side Blue Cross Blue Shield!
6. Obama wants to start a federally funded police force saying in Colorado earlier this month, "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." Huh? Is that in the constitution? It sounds unbelievable, right? Here it is:
7. Obama wants to take over the energy sector by basically making it too expensive to expand power plants, specifically coal fired plants which supply over 50% of all the electricity in the U.S. Tell me, "How do you grow a country & an economy without more power plants?"
8. And now Obama wants to have the authority to take over the internet! Are you kidding me? When are people going to wake and shut this party down once and for all?
Bill would give president emergency control of Internet

Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet.If you aren't quaking in your boots, I don't know how you can consider yourself a liberty loving citizen of the United States of America. This administration is systematically dismantling the foundation of our nation, as we all sit by and watch "So You Thought You Can Dance", "American Idol" and other crazy mind numbing shows.... Who will fight these people?
They're not much happier about a revised version that aides to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, have spent months drafting behind closed doors. CNET News has obtained a copy of the 55-page draft of S.773 (excerpt), which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency.
The new version would allow the president to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" relating to "non-governmental" computer networks and do what's necessary to respond to the threat. Other sections of the proposal include a federal certification program for "cybersecurity professionals," and a requirement that certain computer systems and networks in the private sector be managed by people who have been awarded that license. (emphasis mine)
Remember the words of our own Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security....”(emphasis mine)
Are we there yet? I don't know. But, I do know we are a lot closer today than we were on January 20, 2009.....
