Yesterday, I saw an episode of "Cavuto on Business", in which the “bailout” of GM was discussed. As you may know, GM has recently run advertisements bragging that they have repaid their loans ahead of schedule. Ben Stein, a guest on Neil Cavuto's show, concluded that bailouts work. I take great exception to that comment. Bailouts do not work!
When Ben Stein says that bailouts work, he… Continue

The controversial bill HR 2499 has passed the House of Representatives. Before being passed, it was amended, to remove one of the more objectionable features of the Bill.
The bill now calls for two referendums in Puerto Rico. In the first, the people of Puerto Rico are asked to choose between:

There are hundreds of petitions that exist on the internet, that are supposed to fix the government. There are so many such petitions, that many freedom-minded people don't know which ones are legitimate.
One such petition, which you are asked to support is the Articles of Freedom, a document created by the Continental Congress 2009. The We The People Foundation, the organization that first proposed the Continental Congress 2009, has been "petitioning government for redress… Continue

HOW TO GET THE HEALTHCARE PLAN YOU DESIRE
This is a free
country, you can have the healthcare plan you want. For the past year, we have heard from wealthy people, actors, doctors, and insurance companies, who support the idea of a government heathcare plan. There should be absolutely nothing in a free
country stopping you from setting up a system like the one described in the Senate or House healthcare bills. If you do so, and you can show everyone how well it… Continue

There was a letter to the editor of the CDT opposing healthcare, which sparked another discussion on the CDT website. I added my opinion, as follows:
Those of you who are supporting this national healthcare bill are ignoring the fundamental injustice of it.
If I came into your home, and demanded you give me your money at gunpoint, and then I donated that money to the most… Continue

Dear President Obama (firstname.lastname@example.org),
You asked for a report of any misinformation about Healthcare being spread on the internet.
I found something that really scares me. It comes from a very powerful organization, is intended to fool the people, and if people start believing in it, it will end any effort to implement real changes in our healthcare system!
On the website Thomas.gov, there is a document, that is over 1000 pages in length. The link to it can… Continue

To all of our branches of government, and to the media:
All of you have a sacred duty to uphold and protect our constitution. All of you are abdicating that duty!
To the Supreme Court:
The wording in the Bill of Rights is clear and unambiguous. Your duty is to prevent the government from impinging on those rights and freedoms that are inherent to all of us. It seems to me, that if… Continue

Hello Members of the 9-12 Project of Central Pennsylvania!
First, I wanted to thank everyone for joining this organization, for participating in the Tea Party (and other events), and for waking up to realize that something is wrong. We all joined this group for some reason – to bring about some sort of change in our lives, to try to make a difference in what our government is doing, or maybe just to find a group of like-minded individuals to socialize… Continue
