Traitors

The GOP claims that they have been given a mandate to “Repeal and replace” when in fact no one , ever gave them that

No conservative in America, other than hard core Romney voters, asked for that

They were elected to do exactly what they did when Obama was in office

Pass a bill to repeal that most onerous act of socialist legislation

But they can’t

And they won’t

Because it does not act in their interest

No more than the congress that voted for the income tax or prohibition does this congress represent those who elected them to office

They will do as they please as long as it prolongs their wealth and power

They have gone to Washington to be Kings and rulers and prosper at our expense

Democrats and republicans are now the same

They have only one goal and it is only to rule us, the little people and gain as much money and influence as possible

But the little people are growing weary of paying for their games

Paying to be ruled

To be watched, tracked and taxed near to death

 

“I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House?”

“Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation?” he asked. “Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? …Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other.”

“The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?”  “Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death !”

Patrick Henry

  1. Reblogged this on The way I see things … and commented:
    Democrats and republicans are now the same
    Amen

  2. Can’t blame Congress for the income tax and prohibition. Those required ratification by 3/4 of the states.

    Otherwise, spot on.

    • “Article Five of the United States Constitution describes the process whereby the federal Constitution may be altered. Twenty-seven amendments have been added (appended as codicils) to the Constitution.

      Amendment proposals may be adopted and sent to the states for ratification by either:

      A two-thirds (supermajority) vote of members present—assuming that a quorum exists—in both the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States Congress; or
      A two-thirds (supermajority) vote of a national convention called by Congress at the request of the legislatures of at least two-thirds (at present 34) of the states. (This method has never been used.)

      All thirty-three amendment proposals that have been sent to the states for ratification since the establishment of the Constitution have come into being via the Congress.”
