Return to the Constitution

After all I have written promoting the Constitution, Penny Fattig thinks I am “discontented with our governing system.” Clearly, it is people (liberals/progressives/socialists) in the system that I oppose.
New faces in Washington will need to have their feet held to the fire to prevent them from becoming part of that “corrupt system.” Penny is oblivious to how socialism has been creeping (now boldly running) into our lives. She writes “we still have private ownership of property and everyone still has the right to vote.”
Speaking about the fairness of redistributing wealth (Oct. 18), Nancy Pelosi said, “Disparity is not just about wages alone....disparity is about ownership and equity.”
As part of the government takeover of banks, home mortgages are being underwritten by Barry and his co-conspirators. What could possibly go wrong there? Blue states have somehow been unable to get ballots to our overseas military in time for the election. Apparently they have the “right” to vote, they just don’t get the chance to.
The word “amenities” does not appear in the Constitution. The federal government has no authority (and obviously no ability) to “take care of our elderly,” “educate our young people” or “feed us.” Promises made through Social Security and Medicare (Advantage) are being broken.
I thought schools were paid for by property taxes. Still, Democrats gave $26 billion to favored states whose teachers’ pensions are underwater. Unions were allowed to offer pensions at 70-90% of wages for life. Can’t figure out how that became under-funded. The Department of Education educates no-one. Democrats bail out the unions, the unions vote for Democrats, etc.
When the healthcare bill was passed, it also included takeover of the student loan program. Government intervention in what school you attend, what classes you take and what job you get? As of July, 41.8 million are on food stamps. How’s that hope and change working out for ya?
I have not met Rebekah Davis, but from looking at her website, she appears to be a Democrat in the traditional sense. She claims to be a fiscal conservative and seems to be on the right side of some issues. I think she should aim higher and run against Ben Nelson. I do not think she will have much luck defeating Adrian Smith, who is entrenched in leviathan. The Department of Agriculture doesn’t grow anything but it’s own bureaucracy.
No-one should oppose equal rights for women. The Ledbetter Act made discrimination claims retroactive to the Magna Carta (against employers who may be dead and companies no longer in existence). With attorneys being major contributors to the Democratic Party, it is not surprising that all Democrats voted for this litigation bonanza. Adrian Smith and most Republicans didn’t vote for the act, because their votes weren’t required to pass it.
Be sure to get out and vote, to counteract the Democrat slogan “vote and vote often.” Vote to cancel out their votes by dead people and Disney characters.
