“Let’s say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation. I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained this country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.” – Dr. Ben Carson
Now that we’ve all watched the media’s feeding frenzy concerning the shutdown and the impending doom of America, we all must be made aware that the deal to “avert default” and reopen the government is simply a Band-Aid on a huge wound that’s going to start bleeding once again in a few months. Nothing was settled. ObamaCare goes forward. The IRS has the authority to keep spending if Congress and the President can’t solve their differences . . . and they won’t. If they do, it will once again be more future debt, causing a bigger crash down the road.
China is already making plans to make their currency the international standard, because of our debt and printing of our dollars ($1 trillion a year) with nothing backing them other than the “full faith and credit” of the U. S. Government. If that happens, our standard of living will change for the worse – rapidly – and it’ll be due to our government’s inability to stop spending money they don’t have. It’s like a kid with an allowance that keeps borrowing from his buddies with no way to pay it back with his limited money.
Whatever happened to the Republican philosophy of shrinking government? The largest growth of government spending is “entitlements” (I hate the term), and they make the problem worse. Weakness (read: “surrender”) with this president is not going to work. We need a clue-by-four approach to stop his insanity concerning fiscal, moral, military, and security issues. Personally, I believe we caved. You may disagree – this is America, but we just got sold a temporary easement in exchange for a catastrophe down the road.
On a different note, I attended the Tea Party Pow Wow in Mt. Pleasant, and was pleasantly surprised (no pun intended). The people prayed, respectfully listened, and got ideas on how to get involved. I spoke about the referendum I’m supporting concerning a part time legislature. The savings here is less law, regulations, and taxes. 46 states have some sort of a part time legislature, and some only meet every other year. The time has come. I would not doubt in the future that we could vote from home on a secure computer – now that would cause problems for the lobbyists.
While many blamed the republicans for the shut down, Ted Cruz arrived home to a standing ovation . . . for nearly 8 minutes. Not all people are buying the liberal news media spin.
Keep the faith, pray for your government and leaders, and hold them responsible when they stray off the path of common sense and constitutional principles.

I wanted to share a quick report on the “Fire Sebelius” effort Chairman Priebus is leading. Two Fridays ago, the RNC started calling for the Obama Administration to fire Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for the ObamaCare rollout. While we all know how bad the policy is itself, the rollout was actually worse, and is costing Americans unnecessary frustration and in some circumstances – money. Since the chairman’s initial call, more have joined including an unlikely source – former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs – who called for someone to be fired and commented on how excruciating the ObamaCare rollout has been. After 3 years of planning and hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars, Secretary Sebelius’ disastrous performance demands it…
Wasserman Schultz: Exchanges Needed Better Design, Better Rollout
Add Debbie Wasserman Schultz to the list of important Dems disappointed by Obamacare’s online exchanges. The Democratic National Committee Chair admitted the website’s shortcomings should have been addressed before launch, in an interview with HuffPost Live on Tuesday. She claimed that part of the problem was the amount of traffic overwhelming the site, but some experts have questioned this explanation, instead blaming structural flaws in the website’s architecture.
“I don’t think we should be making excuses,” Wasserman Schultz said of the website’s issues. “There should have been a better rollout and a better design.”
Whatever gave Wasserman Schultz the idea that the ObamaCare exchanges needed better design and a better rollout? How much longer will the Democrats stand in the way of solving our Obamacare problem as glitch stories like these from today continue to pile up?
Democrats Oppose Fairness For All
Following Obama’s unilateral delay of the employer mandate for big business, the Republican House passed funding legislation to delay the individual mandate. The legislation also ensured members of Congress would be treated the same under ObamaCare as average Americans. Democrats opposed it; the president promised to veto it. By opposing this legislation, Democrats said they opposed fairness for all. They would rather look out for the interests of big business and their political allies than ensure equal treatment for all Americans. If Democrats had brought themselves to support basic fairness, the government would have stayed open.
