What I want to see from the President on down is an aggressive attitude, a "we can win" attitude, and a "don’t mess with me" attitude. We are very much still on top, still the greatest economy, and still the most powerful military in the world.
Neither the EU nor the French nor the Germans nor the Brits have a vote in our affairs. We can and should consult with them, if only to try to minimize the impacts of our decisions on them. But to accord the EU socialists with more than that is to give them far more influence than they have earned. If we look into the future, we should be concerned about the EU becoming Eurasia, and creating their councils to support the hordes of Muslims in their midst.
We need not treat the UN as a holy of holies when it comes to our need to take action in our eventual or immediate defense. Of the some 200 members in the General Assembly, our supporters do not amount to more than a few dozen. In the Security Council there are strange bedfellows as members now, and it promises to become far worse. The main reason to stay a member is to wield our veto when needed.
The world is full of two things: the poor, and the whiners. No matter how many trillions of dollars we dump freely on the rest of the nations we can count on the recipients being ungrateful for it, their being very vocal in wanting more and more, and their population exploding evermore beyond our help. There is nothing wrong with tithing as a nation and having zero expectations of anything in return, but when the tithes are turned into militias, AK-47s and IEDs, or voting blocks against our interests in a region, seizure of US property, or even murder of our citizens, we are doing something very wrong, and should stop our support.
The attitude that it is the poor we are trying to help so put up with the anti-American governments at the top is just woefully counterproductive.
We make martinets, millionaires and militias with our money. This is wrong.

Obama the Abortionist
Genocide for Convenience in America
Obama, as we have come to realize, supports and voted for grisly types of abortion three times, which raises the question of just how Christian his beliefs really are. Abortion is against God's will, against His intent, and against His commandments, as a thorough study of the Bible will attest. This makes abortion a sin, and a clear violation of the commandment not to murder.
In the Bible, God refers to His children in many passages, and not surprisingly, He treats unborn children exactly the same as He treats born children. They are His Sons and Daughters, whether born or unborn, and He gives them His protection. They must not be murdered.
Today, abortion has risen to the level of genocide, we having aborted 50 million babies in the US since the passage of Roe versus Wade. Worse, it is predominantly genocide for convenience--the children are simply not wanted.
The Christian position on abortion is contained in the reference:

It Will be the Whole Encheleftada
Where everyone will wear pink underwear.
The Democratic Convention has scheduled an all-star leftwing lineup as speakers. We will be schmoozed by no less than: Ex Co Pres Hillary, Ex Pres Jimmie C, Ex VP Algore of Global Swarming fame, Swiftboat Kerry, and Boss Daley from Chicago, among others, to bless DeBama as their 2008 Candidate for Pres. Are you swooning yet?
Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will round out the lefters, I am sure. All we need now is Dennis the Menace, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to put in an appearance. These people are bidding fair to run this nation. Can you believe it?

Fundamental reform of our tax system is urgently needed!
We the people pay the taxes that fund the government. Corporations do not pay taxes. They collect taxes embedded in their prices from consumers and turn the money over to the government. Thus, if you raise corporate tax levels, it is the individual that pays for the raises. The idea of taxing corporations instead of individuals, thus giving people the benefit of "free" tax money from business, is erroneous (Source: Dr. Milton Friedman, to the Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform, March 31, 2005.).
The sole purpose of taxation should be to provide revenue for the operation of the government. There should be no "redistribution of wealth" function added to our tax policy, as that is pure Marxism-- a totally discredited economic and political philosophy. We have allowed this redistributionist idea to be implemented in our nation because of the penetration of liberal socialist ideas into the body politic and our legislatures. It gives unwarranted power to those in the legislature that control tax policy. The idea of redistributionism is clearly rooted in envy--envy of the Haves by the Have-nots. What a subjective way to make national policy! The progressive tax code is simply theft by the government of the rightful property of an individual--his earnings. It is theft by that amount over and above a fair percentage share per person.
The tax code is so distorted now that the top 20% of earners pay 85% of the income taxes, while 40% of the population pay either nothing at all or actually receive money! (Source: data from the Congressional Budget Office, 2005.). There is a significant possibility that the new administration will make an attempt next year to raise upper quintile individual and corporate taxes by large amounts to further their social aims, such as new entitlements, while ignoring our gigantic deficits and broken current entitlement systems. Such shortsighted tax policies are neither ethical, democratic, nor conducive to economic growth and job creation, and will send our nation along the path of leveling and increasing misery for all. We witnessed this in the Soviet Union for over 75 years. We Americans, however, should not rob the well-to-do Peter to help pay the poor and unfortunate Paul (before he hits his stride and outearns most of us!).
My vote goes for the Fair Tax approach (see www.fairtax.org), which has been demonstrated in multiple nations, including several former USSR states, to be far more attractive for all economically. Even a Flat Tax would be far preferable to the ethical morass we now have, so long as we don't end up with both a Progressive and a Flat or Fair Tax! To sort this out will require an extensive national education program and debate, followed eventually by a Constitutional Amendment. The sooner, the better!

Anti-Discrimination Getting All-Pervasive
There Ought to be a Law!
If you open your home to the public, you have just forfeited your right to allow or deny entry of anyone of any race, color, sex, religion, or creed. Or so goes it in France now, and in the US, I suspect. If you open a store or other business to serve the public, it is the same thing--you must allow entry to all of the public. Even when you know that the person entering is a wanted criminal, you cannot stop him ( but you can call the police).
This means that terrorists or anyone resembling a terrorist cannot be barred from entering public establishments, and if you do call the police you are likely to be sued. Thus intimidated, you and the rest of us will have to allow the deepest of penetration of our lives by the real terrorists--literally everywhere but our homes so long as they remain private. Neither malls, nor shops, nor the grocers, nor the doctor's office, nor banks nor amusement parks are safe from their presence, as things stand today. Just don't try to offer your home for sale. It is then open to public inspection, and hence to everyone.
We must wait until they show their true colors and do what they will to us before we can react. We will lose a lot before then--loved ones; our nation, possibly; all we hold dear. It is true that we have already lost much to them through intimidation. Such is our freedoms, our laws, and our Constitution. I hope our nation lasts in all its glory through the future generations of my family, but I am not exactly confident that it will.
Is Obama an American or Not?
There is smoke all over the place that Mr. Barak Hussein Obama does not have a valid birth certificate attesting to his birth in the United States—specifically Hawaii. If this is so, he cannot be elected to the Presidency by law. The FBI should be directed to investigate this situation and report back to the court system whether Obama is truly eligible to run for that office. There should be absolutely no hesitation on the part of the Department of Justice or the Administration in pursuing this matter to the end.
We all should demand such an investigation in order to put the matter to rest once and for all well before the November election. There should be no Clinton surprises to uproot the election process—best that any bad news for Obama and his maniacs comes from the DOJ officially.
