Wonderful Piece of History About to Take Place

My salute to the Oath Keepers and the wonderful opportunity that will be afforded to all true patriots to take part in a momentous event. You can read all about it here.

That's One Small Step for Obama, One Giant Leap for Socialism


"Cerberus Capital Management is expected to be an early casualty of the Treasury's rescue of the hobbled automaker, as the buyout firm will lose its 80 percent equity stake in Chrysler, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

According to the article, which cites an unnamed Obama administration official, Cerberus' equity stake in Chrysler is now worthless, effectively ending its ownership of the car company." [link]

Just as easy as that, the Obama administration takes away ownership of a private firm and is now the controlling interest of a private sector company. That is socialism folks, when the government runs everything. The means of production is centrally (governmental) controlled. What or who is next?

This From a "Constitutional Lawyer"?

"His [Obama's] announcement Monday of a new position on bailing out Detroit went beyond a desire to be sure tax dollars were not wasted in bailing out struggling companies. It put the Obama administration squarely in the position of adopting a so-called industrial policy, in which government officials, not business executives or the free market, decided what kinds of products a company would make and how it would chart its future." [link]

I am pretty sure there is nothing in the Constitution that grants this type of power to the president. Industry is not and should not be the business of government. The business of government is very strictly laid out in the U.S. Constitution. However it is rarely if ever adhered to except when the government can use it for its purposes.

Quote for the Day

"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest possible limits. ... and [when] the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction." --St. George Tucker, Judge of the Virginia Supreme Court 1803
