This is one hell of a quote:

Our government is too big. It is too inefficient. It is too intrusive. It needs to do less, and it needs to do a considerably better job of executing those functions it does carry out. The struggle to take us from where we are today to a future in which a leaner, flatter government allows its citizens to truly live free, is the defining battle of our time. Nothing less than the definition of what it means to be “an American” is at stake.

This comes from this piece here:

WHERE’S SAM WHEN YOU NEED HIM?

…comes from Michelle Malkin’s piece The Amnesty Mob vs. America.

The whole article is a good read.

Here’s the quote:

Rubio, Ryan and other Republicans who’ve made common cause with these welfare-state goons have betrayed fundamental principles of limited government and the rule of law. They’ve allied themselves with the mob. There’s nothing, not one thing, “conservative” about mass illegal alien amnesty. It’s the complete Chicago-ization of America.

…comes from an American Thinker article. It’s about the history that I watched. Senator Rand Paul has got a pair of balls that Congress hasn’t seen in decades. America will not tolerate a tyrant, nor will it tolerate the loss of freedom.

I stand with Rand!

The quote:

Rand advanced his strategic goal. The entire filibuster episode portrayed a radically different image of Barack Obama. Even among low information voters, Obama’s public image just took a serious hit. Instead of being the cool guy who loves you, Obama is now the tyrant who reserves the right to kill you any time he feels like it. On an emotional level, Rand Paul undid in one day years of spin about Obama.

This comes from Rand Paul Shifts Political Orbit.

Government by the people.

…is as fine an example of Conservatism trumps Progressivism in one paragraph that I’ve ever read.

It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning can not be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary.

You may be wondering where I got this fine gem, nay, this masterpiece of a quote from. Well, if you must know, and you must! It comes from Heritage.org and their piece on Calvin Coolidge.

You really should read all about it right here: Calvin Coolidge: Forefather of Our Conservatism

What a great read.

…is excellent, and there’s two of them.

“If you took every single penny that Warren Buffett has, it’d pay for 4-1/2 days of the US government. This tax-the-rich won’t work. The problem here is the government is way bigger than even the capacity of the rich to sustain it. The Buffett Rule would raise $3.2 billion a year, and take 514 years just to pay off Obama’s 2011 budget deficit.” -Mark Steyn

“If you think only the wealthy are going to be hit by what’s coming, think again. The fiscal cliff is going to drag everyone else down with it. It’s just the warm-up for the total societal collapse of the United States.” -Mark Steyn

Got them from here.

…stumbled onto this in my reading adventure. It’s from a good piece over at American Thinker.

Elections, they have consequences.

It may seem as though nothing has changed, now that Obama and friends have retained control of the government, but that’s an illusion. By laws passed and executive orders and regulations already written, by money printed and debt issued, the Powers That Be have already determined our future. You haven’t noticed because most of the new policies haven’t gone into effect yet, or if they are in effect, there is a lag time until their consequences are felt.

That comes from this piece:

Your Future in Obama World
By Hillary Pugh

 

Stumbled onto this while perusing the interwebs.

This is a good quote:

And it is a sad statement on America that millions will believe him. When you buy a false dream, it’s not possible to return it — all sales are final. A multitude of people bought the Barack Obama myth and now they are stuck with it. Because to admit how small he really is and the degree of his spectacular failure as president is to admit their own failure — and what’s the point of having a delusion if you own up to being deluded? No… reality must be changed to support the illusion.

Here’s where it comes from:

The Obamage Is Done
By William L. Gensert

The most damaging decisions we make in life are often a function of the lies we tell ourselves. For Barack Obama, I imagine those include “I am important — I can do this job — I am better than anyone else — I am special, more than special, I am a great man and everyone loves me.”

When Barack Obama walked off that stage in Denver last week, he believed he had won the debate. Why wouldn’t he? Just showing up has always been enough in the past. Remember, this is a man who became successful without having actually ever succeeded.

Apart from campaigning, Obama hasn’t really ever done anything. Yet, his delusion of victory should surprise no one, since he also believes he is a great president doing a sensational job.
