Help Wanted Incumbents Need Not Apply

The people are specking and the incumbents are falling. Well actully they fell when they stopped listening to the people who voted them in and only heard those special interest groups with the deep pockets whispering sweet nothings and the promises of a lifetime seat.

Clearly the incumbents fell for it hook line and sinker. They decided to piss on the Constitution and trample the rights of American people and now the people are speaking up with their ballots.

"Enough already" has been the mantra of people on both sides of the seat. The constitutionalists hand Libertarians have been shouting this to deaf ears long before the bailouts and the HCR control bill, but more Americans are waking up.

The American people do not care how long you have been in office and what seniority you have in the Senate or House, if you ignored them, they are voting you out and hiring those who will pay attention.

It looks like America's political face is about to get an extreme makeover and it will not be just Republicans or just Democrats controlling the legislator. Nope Americans are going to see candidates who are liberty minded individuals who want less government intrusion and more accountability.

The time is now.

Can you see the government's hidden role in the BP oil spill?

Quote of the Day: "Government's view of the economy can be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it." -- Ronald Reagan (paraphrased)

The politicians meddle with everything. For example, when it comes to energy production there are . . .

* Direct subsidies
* Tax breaks and tax penalties
* Liability limits, but also potential fines if you don't do things just right

What a meddling muddle! This is why . . .

It's fair to say that the federal government played a hidden role in the BP oil spill. To learn more read the sample letter to Congress below.

We think it would be better . . .

* For oil companies to pay all the costs and carry all the potential risks of each drilling project
* To have all of these costs and risks reflected in the prices consumers pay, rather than hidden in legislation and regulations

In other words, there should be . . .

* No subsidies or special tax breaks
* No liability limits
* No tax-funded bailouts, or government run clean-up funds
* And regulations should be provided by insurance companies who are putting their own money at risk

If, after reading the sample letter to Congress below, you agree with us that this approach would better protect both the environment and the taxpayer, then please send Congress a letter telling them that. You can use DownsizeDC.org's No Bailouts campaign to send your letter.

You may borrow from or copy this sample letter . . .

The BP oil spill is another example of the destructive nature of government guarantees and bailouts.

I know that BP has agreed to pay more of the clean-up costs, beyond the government-provided liability cap. I also know that they've been threatened by Congress and the Administration if they don't. But this is hypocritical, because Congress created the liability cap and the clean up fund in the first place! In 1990, Congress passed a law that . . .

* capped oil company liability for spills at $75 million
* set up a fund, paid for by the oil companies, to pay for the rest of the clean-up

In effect, this is a government-run oil spill insurance program, but without the risk management incentives provided by real insurance companies. This whole scheme was a terrible idea from the start, and has been used to bail out companies that cause oil spills a whopping 51 times! http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/02/us/02liability.html
Because of the liability cap, BP may have been less cautious than it would have been if its own money had been at risk.

In addition, a lack of regulation has been blamed for the BP spill. But government regulators . . .

* don't have the profit and loss incentive that private insurance companies do; they don't go out of business for their mistakes
* tend to impose one-size-fits all rules that don't work as well as the site-specific requirements that insurance companies impose
* and often act as partners in the industry they regulate, not as watchdogs http://www.thefreemanonline.org/columns/tgif/bp-spill/

But imagine if we had a free market in energy . . .

* Oil companies would be liable for ALL the damage they cause
* And this would compel them to seek liability insurance in the private market

In turn, insurance companies would . . .

* demand the strictest standards to prevent accidents and spills because, unlike government regulators, they would be financially responsible for any mishaps
* and, if the risks are too great, they would deny coverage

If off-shore drilling is too risky, that means no one in a free market will invest in it, and entrepreneurs would then have a huge incentive to develop less-risky energy alternatives. This would be a good thing! This is what you politicians claim to want!

This means that a true free market in energy would actually reduce accidents and CREATE A CLEANER ENVIRONMENT.

I therefore demand that you put an end to government meddling in energy production.

1) Instead of raising the liability cap for oil spills, remove all government liability caps on all forms of energy production
2) Instead of inefficient and counter-productive government regulations, allow private insurance to set requirements for off-shore oil drilling and other forms of energy production, such as nuclear, which is also currently protected by government liability limits
3) Get rid of all subsidies, tax breaks, and tax penalties so that we can benefit from free and fair competition among all energy producers

Once these three market-based policies are in place, energy companies will bear the true capital expense of their projects -- instead of the taxpayers. Risky and dangerous projects will flop. But profitable projects should be allowed to proceed -- including drilling for oil.

Take Action to STOP Cap and Tax

One day, you hear a loud knock on your front door.

But it's not a neighbor visiting or someone trying to sell you a subscription.

Instead, it's a federal agent -- the federal government's newest threat to your liberty coming to check your household appliances . . . your light bulbs . . . your thermostat . . . and this is NO JOKE.

Believe me, I wish it was.

But should Cap and Tax pass, what I just described could be EXACTLY what you and I see in home after home, town after town all across our country -- along with skyrocketing home electric and heating prices.

That's why it's vital you sign the petition to your U.S. senators, demanding they vote against this dangerous power grab IMMEDIATELY.

You see, Cap and Tax has been revived and is moving through Congress right now, with select weak-kneed Republicans like Lindsey Graham and John McCain looking to make deals to pass this key plank in the radical globalist agenda.

Because make no mistake, that's what Cap and Tax is all about. More government control. More INTERNATIONAL control, with the corresponding loss of freedom and sovereignty.

There's really no other way to put it -- Cap and Tax would give the federal government UNPRECEDENTED control over the private sector -- and our very lives.

Big Government bureaucrats in Washington would effectively be able to tax businesses for emitting more carbon dioxide than they think is "appropriate."

Just as bad, they'll be able to demand you change your way of living -- forcing you to "retrofit" your house with "government-approved" light bulbs, refrigerators, water heaters, toilets, air conditioners, and whatever else they can dream up.

And don't think for a second they won't send around federal jackboots to make sure you're complying.

In fact, the Cap and Tax Bill SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZES just such intrusive home visits by government snoops.

And combine that with the expanded power of jackbooted federal thugs under the so-called Patriot Act (which was recently reauthorized), and you have a recipe for Americans, for the first time in our memory, not being safe and secure in their own homes.

Of course, that's bad enough. But just like the recently passed nationalized health care mandate, Cap and Tax is just another excuse for Big Government to reach its greedy little hands into our wallets.

If passed, Cap and Tax would:

*** Increase taxes by $650 BILLION, virtually guaranteeing that our economy gets even worse and NEVER recovers;

*** Result in over ONE MILLION lost American jobs per year, as energy-intensive industries are forced to shut their doors or move overseas;

*** Allow Big Government politicians to decide which businesses get taxpayer subsidies and which ones are shut down, virtually guaranteeing massive corruption on a scale we've never seen before in the United States.

And don't believe the lies. This bill has nothing to do with the environment.

In fact, the best experts agree Cap and Tax will have almost zero impact on the environment anyway -- except, of course, for lost jobs, higher taxes, and blighted small towns and rural communities.

So what is Cap and Tax really about?

Raw government POWER.

Government POWER to tax.

Government POWER to enter your home to "check for compliance."

And government POWER to control the economy, our lives and our freedom.

Just take a look at Spain -- the Cap-and-Taxers' "shining" example of an eco-socialist paradise.

There, unemployment is approaching 20% and rising.

And what about all those new "green" jobs Cap and Tax apologists are claiming will be generated?

In Spain, for every new "green" job created (at a taxpayer cost of $800,000, EACH mind you), 2.2 economically-productive jobs are destroyed!

The fact is, passage of Cap and Tax could send our economy nose-diving off a cliff!

So it's never been more important that you act TODAY.

The good news is, Campaign for Liberty has a plan to fight back.

But, I'm afraid, unless you act IMMEDIATELY, Cap and Tax will become law.

I won't mince words. Our backs are against the wall. Already, Big Government politicians on both sides of the aisle have rammed this bill through the U.S. House.

And President Barack Obama would love nothing more than to flash a grin for his pals in the national media as he signs Cap and Tax into law.

So that means our ONE CHANCE to stop this radical bill is the U.S. Senate.

And there, our job isn't easy. Just like in the House, there are pro-Cap and Tax senators in both parties.

But there is good news.

There are also a lot of VERY nervous senators in both parties. In fact, even John McCain is now wavering from his past support for Cap and Tax, as he faces conservative primary opposition in his reelection.

They're nervous because they see the anger in the eyes of the voters. They know they rammed through a health care bill opposed by over 60% of Americans.

They know they passed a huge tax increase.

They know they've added trillions to our exploding national debt.

And these senators are nervous because they know that so far freedom-loving folks like you have fought back against other freedom-grabbing schemes – and are making real progress in our fight to reign in the out-of-control Fed.

They're nervous because we've exposed their assaults on our liberty.

So now, in this latest fight, many senators are riding the fence.

They're afraid of what YOU'LL do to them if they vote to ram Cap and Tax into law.

So today, our job is to KNOCK those senators off the fence and squarely onto our side by sending a very LOUD and very CLEAR message to the U.S. Senate . . .

. . . Any politician who votes FOR Cap and Tax should look for another job.

PERIOD....

John Tate
Campaign for Liberty
President

P.S. H.R. 2454, the Cap and Tax Bill, has already been rammed through the U.S. House, and our ONE CHANCE is to stop the bill in the Senate.

If passed, the Cap and Tax Bill could send the entire U.S. economy nose-diving off a cliff, and you and I will be handing unprecedented control of our lives to the federal government.

That's why it's vital you sign the petition IMMEDIATELY, along with a generous contribution of, or even TODAY!

Unbelievable, Kerry & Lieberman introduce Cap & Trade today

Unbelievable, Kerry & Lieberman introduce Cap & Trade today
By Kyle Prast
May 12, 2010 3:00 p.m.

File this bill under Bad Bills & Ideas That Just Won't Die. (There are so many, one cannot get to them all.) Today, Senator Kerry and Lieberman are introducing Cap and Trade to the U.S. Senate. You know, the bill that all pronounced dead earlier this year--the one that didn't have a chance of passage this year. But you see, the issue is NOT capping carbon emissions to save the planet from Global Warming, the issue is taxing you more and controlling your life.

"The Senate bill would set up an emission trading program for utilities starting in 2013. Factories and other “industrial sources” would join the cap-and-trade program in 2016."

The bill proposes cutting greenhouse gases by 17% below their 2005 levels in 10 years. Never mind that CO2 has since been shown to have no affect on warming and that the planet has not been warming in the past 10 years.

Never mind that those involved in the Carbon Exchange, like U.W. Madison Prof. Joel Rogers admit that "it is all about the money and if we stopped ALL emissions in the U.S., it would make absolutely no difference". (My Emphasis throughout post)

It is estimated that this legislation will cost the average U.S. homeowner an extra $600 - $1,000/year on their utility bills. Wisconsin will be hit harder because so much of our electricity comes from coal fired plants.

This type of Cap and Trade legislation has already proven itself to be useless in controlling CO2 emissions and detrimental to the economies of Europe. You know, Europe, that is having their own economic woes?

Chris Horner from National Review sums this bill up as an opportunity to transfer wealth. He also points to the devastating effect of carbon taxing on Europe's economy: "I have a take on the lesson for us from Europe amid this debate over at Energy Tribune, written over the weekend but consistent with an emerging meme: we are willfully rushing headlong into the same debt, through the very same mandates, that has broken Europe. The system doesn’t work. And our political class doesn’t care. They’ve got a fundamental transformation to impose — as I describe in Power Grab. It’s not too late to learn their plan and their tricks."

In another piece from Energy Tribune, Today's Greece, Tomorrow's America: How Obama's Health Care and Energy Agendas Really End: "The most troubling aspect of the West’s current policy turmoil is not the European meltdown led by Greece and Spain. It is instead President Barack Obama’s unflinching insistence on rushing America headlong into the very mandates, and resulting debt levels, that precipitated that meltdown."

"Obama is scripting a repeat of Europe’s disaster, here, by cramming down on the American people the same policy fetishes our Left has obsessed about for decades, and which Europe used to bring this down upon itself: statist management of health care and energy."

Our U.S. economy is hanging on by a thread. The CBO just came out with the report that ObamaCare could cost twice as much as originally thought: CBO Doubles Some Health Care Spending Estimates. Now our Senate is poised on adding another economy/job killer bill?

The House version knew Cap and Trade would adversely affect our economy. It even "included two years of unemployment assistance for workers who lose their jobs as a result of this 'jobs bill.' "

Can Obama Pick A Winner?

Obama picks a winner

Solicitor General and President Barack Obama's latest nominee is Elena Kagan, class of 1981. At the Ivy League school, she was a student newspaper editor. Her senior thesis was on socialist politics in New York City. (www.nj.com)

Obama has had his share of picks since he was sworn in and many of those have been extremely questionable. If you have paid attention to politics over the past several years, then you should know who they are.

His first supreme court pick was Sonya Sotomayor who said she could do the job better than any gray haired white man, but of course that wasn't construed as racist.

Now, he is picking someone who appears to in favor of socialist politics and is opposed to the 'don't ask don't tell' policy of the US armed forces claiming it is a "Moral injustice."

CBS News reported that she would be the first openly gay supreme court justice if she is nominated. The Obama administration has refuted that story, so who knows and who cares. She already has a bias towards those who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle as Sotomayor has made remarks against those who are Caucasians.

The simple fact that Elena Kagan has not one minute of experience as a judge should be enough to disqualify her for the bench of the highest court of the Land. Years of experience and insight are needed to rule on cases that go before the Supreme Court and like most Americans I simply don't believe she qualifies.

Obama is great at picking people, but he seems much more qualified at picking his nose.

Has Freedom Died in America?

Quotes of the Day:

"And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise" -- Jesus of Nazareth, Luke 6:31 (KJV)

"Liberty is the only thing you cannot have unless you are willing to give it to others." -- William Allen White

----

Once upon a time, in a country known as the land of the free and the home of the brave, these words were rarely heard:

"May I see your papers please?"

But, increasingly, the free and the brave became dependent and cowardly. They begged to wear chains.

Many fought the trend, but even they were undone, because some in their ranks harbored fears greater than their love of freedom.

Remember where you heard this . . .

If American freedom dies, the widespread desire to control immigration will have been a major factor.

And remember where you heard this . . .

If the fight to defeat the creation of a national ID card FAILS, it will be because of the widespread desire to control immigration. Let us not forget, we have drawn the line on Real ID. Five years have gone by, and we've stalled implementation. But now, other Real ID Jr. proposals are building a head of steam.

So remember where you heard this . . .

Americans will have to carry internal passports, and show them to State officials constantly, and have every aspect of their lives controlled by far off know-it-alls in the federal bureaucracy. Your federal overlords will gain increased control over . . .

* Where, how, and even if you can earn a living
* Whether or not you can board a train, or enter a federal building
* Whether or not you can cash a check, or buy guns or alcohol
* What kind of healthcare you receive
* How long you'll stand in line at the DMV, and whether you can have a license
* Whether or not you can be stopped on our streets, and even detained, for failure to display your card
* And many other aspects of your life

This total control will be made possible by a national identification system that was put in place in order to control immigration. But it will really control YOU!

In this way, immigration control and registration is just like gun control and registration -- it most deeply affects law-abiding citizens.

Remember where you heard this . . .

The immigration debate is NOT about what Mexicans will be allowed to do, IT'S about what YOU will be allowed to do. It's about YOUR freedom . . .

* First the politicians wanted to curtail your freedom to protect you from terrorists
* Now they want to curtail your freedom to protect you from Mexicans

Remember where you heard this . . .

The immigration debate is a scam. It's fear-mongering, foisted by busy-bodies of all varieties. The result will be Bigger Government in Washington, DC. It will control YOU. And now, it's up to YOU to decide . . .

Are you afraid of terrorists and Mexicans? ...or whatever hobgoblin the Big Government Fearmongers will conjure next?

Will you be free and brave, or dependent and cowardly? Will you trade YOUR FREEDOM for a false promise of protection?

This is how we see the issue. And if you end up in chains, remember who warned you. We did.

Meanwhile, for the brave who want to remain free, let the spirit of resistance continue . . .

Please send a letter to Congress opposing all national identification schemes, including the new attempt by Senators Schumer and Graham, to MAKE ALL OF US CARRY Social Security cards with biometric identifiers.

In addition to this campaign's hardwired letter to Congress, which reads as follows -- "Please don't try to fix the REAL ID Act. Please, just repeal it." -- we suggest you add the following in your personal comments . . .

"Please oppose any legislation that contains any support for any kind of national identification system. I specifically oppose plans for a Social Security card containing biometric identifiers. I do not want ANY national identification scheme, and I reject your claim that I need such a system in order to be protected from terrorists and Mexican immigrants. I am not afraid! And I want you to stop being afraid on my behalf."

You can send your letter to Congress here: https://secure.downsizedc.org/etp/campaigns/30

Our thanks go to those who prefer bravery and freedom.

Words to Our Legislators - NO More Excuses

We the people of this great nation are tired of excuses. We are constantly hearing lackluster reasons why we need legislation that we do not want. We constantly here them try to justify taking away our liberties, but Americans are tired of excuses.

Most Americans want to see action taken, they want legislators who will stand against legislation that is unconstitutional. They want legislators who will be the lone wolf if necessary and be the voice of reason during heated debate.

The time for excuses is done, the time for results is now. Americans are already rallying behind those who are running against incumbents. Americans will show their disdain for the lack of representation in the mid term elections as well as the presidential elections.

Americans will start voting in favor of more third party candidates and true conservatives who will not vote according to the will of their party but vote for the will of the people and in accordance to the Constitution.

The United States will see an immense change over the next few years. Let us all use due diligence and learn as much about each candidate as possible before we support any of them.

Stand up, Speak up, Live Free

URGENT: Audit the Fed Amendment Vote TOMORROW

URGENT: Audit the Fed Amendment Vote TOMORROW
Posted by James Leroy Wilson

As you know, the "financial regulation" bills offered up by the House and Senate will do considerable harm.

But the House version has one thing going for it: the bill they passed includes Ron Paul's proposal to Audit the Federal Reserve.

The Senate hasn't passed their bill yet. But Banking Chairman Chris Dodd stripped the House's Audit the Fed provision from the Senate version.

A trans-partisan coalition of Senators, including the Independent Bernie Sanders, Democrat Russ Feingold, and Republican Jim DeMint, are proposing an amendment to Audit the Fed in the senate bill.

This amendment could be voted on Tuesday, May 4. Tomorrow.

DownsizeDC.org has joined a coalition of organizations in signing a letter that opposes the overall bill, but which supports this amendment. Here is the letter . . .

Dear Senator,

Although we oppose S. 3217, the financial regulatory reform legislation currently being considered on the Senate floor, we urge you to vote for Sens. Sanders, Feingold, DeMint, and Vitter's Federal Reserve Transparency Amendment.

This amendment is similar to S.604, the Federal Reserve Sunshine Act, which was offered as an amendment to last year's Budget Resolution. S. 604 has 33 bipartisan cosponsors. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act (H.R. 1207), the House companion bill, has 320 bipartisan cosponsors. A slightly modified version of H.R. 1207 passed the House Financial Services Committee by a vote of 43-28 and was incorporated into the financial reform bill passed by the House.

This amendment does not take away the "independence" of the Fed. It simply requires the GAO to conduct an independent audit of the Fed and requires the Fed to release the names of the recipients of more than $2 trillion in taxpayer-backed assistance during this latest economic crisis.

S. 3217 unacceptably increases the Fed's powers at a time when the American people are demanding answers as to what the Federal Reserve has been doing with the powers it currently possesses. It also strips out the strong audit language contained in the House's reform bill in favor of a watered-down approach that allows the Fed to continue operating in secret. Any true financial reform effort will start with requiring accountability from our nation's central bank.

Therefore, we urge you to work for a standalone vote on S. 604 and, if S. 3217 is brought up for a vote, strongly encourage you to support increased transparency at the Federal Reserve by voting in favor of the Fed Transparency Amendment.

Sincerely,

Americans for Tax Reform
Center for Fiscal Accountability
Campaign for Liberty
The Rutherford Institute
DownsizeDC.org, Inc.
The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste
U.S. Bill of Rights Foundation
Eagle Forum
FreedomWorks

We urge you to also send a letter telling the Senate to support the Sanders/Feingold/DeMint/Vitter amendment for Fed Transparency using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

Time is of the essence. Forward this to your contacts. And by the time you receive this Dispatch . . .

* It will have been posted on our Facebook fan page for you to share: http://www.facebook.com/downsizedc

* And also on our Twitter page for you to retweet: http://twitter.com/DDCDispatch

Thanks for taking action!

Sneaky Underhanded Power Grab Underway in Washington

HUGE POWER GRAB UNDERWAY IN WASHINGTON
-- Democrats looking to get almost ten, brand new anti-gunners in Congress


Friday, April 30, 2010

The Democrat-controlled Congress and the White House are pulling out all the stops to offset the oncoming tidal wave that is threatening to throw them out of power this November.

With their polls sagging badly, the liberal Democrats rammed through a Puerto Rican statehood resolution yesterday which many consider the first step towards making Puerto Rico the 51st state -- a move that would give liberal progressives in the Congress six more Representatives and two new Senators.

Making Puerto Rico a state would bring another gun control bastion into our nation and bring almost ten anti-gun congressmen and senators into the Congress.

This is disgraceful! With her party's polls plummeting, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to get as many additional progressives into Congress as possible so that she can continue advancing her liberal, anti-American agenda.

Regarding the statehood resolution, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) says it "is the Puerto Rico statehood bill which is being pushed by the new progressive party in Puerto Rico trying to create a federally [sanctioned] vote that they say is nonbinding but would give them the legitimacy to then come back and try to seat people in the United States Congress."

To see how your congressman voted on the Puerto Rican statehood resolution, go to:
http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2010/roll242.xml

GOA will keep you updated as to when a vote is scheduled in the U.S. Senate.

GOA helps kill Pelosi's attempt to give DC a vote in Congress

Not to be satisfied with merely eight new liberal votes from Puerto Rico, liberal Democrats want to give statehood to Washington, DC. S. 160 would take a major step in that direction by giving this federal enclave a vote in the House of Representatives.

The bill is the DC Voting Rights Act, otherwise known as the DC Vote Grab Act. It would make Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton a legitimate voting member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

If you know anything about Del. Norton, you know that she is one of the most liberal, anti-gun legislators in the country -- one who completely supports Nancy Pelosi's agenda. Of course, Democrats are not just going to settle for a mere Representative in Congress... they want statehood for the District of Columbia in order to get two anti-gun Senators, as well.

It seems that the Obama-Reid-Pelosi strategy is to continue screwing the country -- even if it hurts them in the polls -- because then they will work to get as many "new" votes as possible through Puerto Rican statehood... DC statehood... and even things like amnesty for illegal aliens.

But if Pelosi were to succeed in making DC a state, there will be two more liberal votes in the Senate -- a situation that would allow them to break any Republican filibuster that would stymie their anti-gun agenda.

The Senate passed S. 160 last year, and if it were not for Gun Owners of America and Senator John Ensign, it would have been signed into law last spring.

Pro-gun Senator John Ensign and Gun Owners of America worked together to attach an amendment to the DC Vote Grab Act

. The amendment would repeal all the restrictive gun control laws still on the books in DC after the landmark D.C. v. Heller Supreme Court decision. The vote margin was an amazing 62-36 in the Senate!

Wiping out DC's still very restrictive anti-gun laws was not what Speaker Pelosi and other rabid anti-Second Amendment members of the House wanted to see.

Because of this GOA-supported amendment, the House has been unable to take any action on the Senate measure. While Speaker Pelosi has no desire to see a pro-gun provision within the DC bill, many House members are afraid to vote for any such bill that doesn't contain the pro-gun Ensign amendment. In short, this has been a real Mexican standoff that has lasted for nearly a year.

In fact, when Pelosi tried to bring up the bill last week, she could not muster enough votes to secure passage. S. 160 might now be dead for the year, but GOA will continue watching this and alert you to any attempts to bring up the bill again.

Senate "disses" America's veterans

For several years, GOA has been alerting gun owners to the travesty of justice that has been perpetrated on our veterans.

After the Brady law went into effect, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) began sending the names of many of its beneficiaries to the FBI so they could be added to the NICS list, denying these individuals their right to purchase a firearm. To date, more than 150,000 military veterans have been denied.

However, none of these veterans were ever convicted of a crime; none were found to be a danger to anyone; and none were afforded any meaningful due process of law. Under the semblance of being "mental defectives," these veterans were added to the list strictly because a doctor or a bureaucrat in the VA appointed someone to manage their finances.

The al-Qaeda terrorists in Guantanamo have been given more due process than the American soldiers who fought them!

To combat this outrage, pro-gun Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) authored S. 669, the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, that will safeguard for veterans two of the most fundamental Constitutional rights enjoyed by Americans: due process of law and the right to keep and bear arms.

The Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act merely stipulates that a veteran cannot lose his or her gun rights "without the order or finding of a judge, magistrate, or other judicial authority of competent jurisdiction that such person is a danger to himself or herself or others."

This very reasonable bill passed out of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee last June, having been approved unanimously.

Burr's language was offered on the floor of the Senate during the health care debate, but unfortunately, it was defeated 53-45. To see how your Senator voted, go to:
http://tinyurl.com/2ufvgu4

GOA will continue fighting for the passage of this very important legislation.

Where we are at

As you know, elections have consequences. GOA is fighting in the trenches to protect/regain our rights. And, thankfully, we have won a couple of major battles at the federal level -- like securing the ability to transport firearms on Amtrak trains and carry loaded guns in National Parks.

In the states, GOA has been successfully pushing Firearms Freedom Acts around the country -- laws which allow guns that are made in their home states, and stay in those states, to be free of federal regulation. (Currently, there are seven states that have enacted such laws; several others are still in the process.)

GOA also worked in Arizona to pass a new Alaska-style carry law which allows citizens to carry concealed firearms without first getting permission from the government.

Larry Pratt recently appeared on MSNBC's Hardball, hosted by Chris Matthews. The interview was, well, interesting to say the least. Just click on the top video at http://gunowners.org.

We have also lost some battles, as would be expected in a climate that is overwhelmingly controlled by liberals in Washington.

So we need your help. We can win the battles that are facing us, but only if we each give our maximum effort. Thank you for your continued support for our work. Even if you can only a give a couple of dollars, every little bit counts.

Obama Number One in Wind Power

That smell in Mo wasn't the output from the biodiesel plant that Obama visited today. No it was the foul stench of rhetoric by an administration that has proved themselves to be full of wind power.

After the Health Care control Bill, Obama has begun his journey of converting this nation into socialism. Next on his agenda?

Well, the regulation of the financial sector that caused the housing bubble. Never mind the fact that it was the regulations that forced banks to allow those who could not afford to purchase a home to get a home mortgage.

Other issues on his agenda, Immigration Reform. Now, I dont agree with Arizona's decision to become a "Show me you Papers" state, but I dont live there, and I most certainly do not have to go visit there any time soon. However, it is their right as a state to do as they will and up to the legal citizens of that state to deal with their legislators.

There will be no immigration reform. They will call it whatever they want, but we know it will be nothing more than AMNESTY. Hey, why not give amnesty to all lawbreakers who are just trying to make better lives for themselves?

Obama's other agenda's, too many to go over them all, but Cap & Trade, also known as Cap & Tax, Cap & Slave or energy regulations.

Genius idea, put the whole nation on a smart grid that has no viable protection against hackers. Some schoolboy in Asia or Russia will be able to shut the nation down while playing online games.

Now, if Obama wanted to do something besides smile and let out a lot of hot meaningless air, perhaps, he could get congress to lift the ban on growing hemp. Hemp is not a drug, but it is related to marijuana. It does produce far more biodiesel per pound than any other plant and it burns much cleaner and it grows in the most harshest of conditions.

The American people are tired of having a leader who is number one in wind power, they want a leader who will protect and defend the Constitution, they want a leader who will protect their liberties, they want a leader who can do more than smile pretty for the camera/

We will have to wait until 2012 for that issue to be resolved, unless of course someone comes up with the real obama birth certificate, in the meantime, we have the 2010 election that have the likes of many Socialist democrats already checking out the help wanted sections of their newspapers.
