    Fred the Protectionist

    Freddie, it’s good to see that the King of Imbecilic Morons is still among us. I thought someone might have offed you. I still see you are struggling to master the elusive skill of reading.
    Never fear Freddie Boy, all the good folks here are always willing to aid the afflicted. Let’s get started shall we? I’ll take it slow as usual, just for you Freddie Boy.

    Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, is your subject of the day.
    These simple words are implied as a protected right for every American. I know for the afflicted that the term “Constitutional Rights” may be a little confusing. Let’s first clarify the Constitution does not, nor has it ever granted any American Rights. The Constitution clearly acknowledges that these are inherent rights of all people. Yes Freddie, that includes imbecilic self-illiterate morons as well.
    What the Constitution does mandate, is that our Government guarantees us that those inherent rights shall be Protected and Insured for every American under the law. The most essential word to pay attention to in regards to this lesson is “American”, in the legal vernacular. In this case it would be defined as an individual has the right to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” which is protected for each of us. When someone forces another to submit to something against their will, they are denying those individuals the Liberty to make a decision they deem as best for their own life, therefore their own happiness. There is nothing that requires anyone to surrender their rights, for the sake of those to inept, or lazy to pay their way. You want to commit suicide in a Government Health Care System, that’s your right. What is not your right or your governments Freddie Boy, is forcing us to commit suicide with you.

    What is scary Freddie is that morons like you appear to support a government health care system, when you have no clue of how one works. If you think that Insurance companies deny a lot of treatment, then wait till you learn that the government today denies under Medicare nearly ten times the amount as private insurance companies. The fact that far more Americans die as a result of not meeting Government mandates that qualify, or disqualify one for treatment, than any other program, which also includes the indigent. Treatment for all Americans in need of it, is already required by existing laws, no one can be refused life saving treatment. No one dies in this country because they are denied treatment by Hospitals. If they do, someone is, or should be headed to prison…That’s already the law Freddie Boy. You want to end someone’s life early in this country, force them into Medicare. There is no law that says the Federal Government can’t deny you treatment, and believe it they do…allot. Just ask anyone who has been forced to enter this Government run program. Heck better yet, asked a Doctor who treats Medicare Patients, if you can find one who will.
    They are few and far between, and becoming fewer every day, because of the political red tape, but mainly because they are sworn to protect life, and the government restricts them from doing that with their strict guidelines. The Government takes from the Doctor, and the patient their rights to act in the best interest of their health, therefore their own life. The manner in which Medicare is mandated is in fact an unconstitutional program itself, and rapidly failing program at that.
    So you see Freddie Boy, I truly support all of the Liberal Nazis being given this government health care. There will be far less of you around to try and still the rights and money of hard working Americans, for yourself.
    No one I have heard supporting Mr. Paul or any who oppose this idiot law, denounces health care reform. To think that anyone who opposes this unjust law does so to deny those in need health care, is just preaching Liberal Nazis Propaganda Rhetoric.
    What most here are opposed to, is their right to chose being unjustly…and unconstitutionally taken from them. Anything that threatens our rights in any way, threatens us all Black, White, Brown, Red or Yellow. If you or this illegal government think that We The People are going to allow you to place our families in jeopardy without a fight, you are truly as delusional as you sound.

    I ran across this quote from a noted Harvard economist. We all need to understand this. Just now on CNBC they were talking about global economic integration in the consumer protection bill. This is the quote. “democracy, national sovereignty and global economic intergration are mutually incompatible” It’s possible to have any 2 but not all 3. “It’s the inexcapable trilemma of the world economy”
    Now if this is true & if our politicans aim is global economic integration we have to forego either national sovereignty or democracy. It’s quite obvious to me that democracy is being sacrificed for global economic integration & national sovereignty. How do you all feel about that? “Sovereignty is the quality of having supreme, independent authority over a territory. It can be found in a power to rule & make law that rests on a political fact for which no purely legal explanation can be provided.” Making laws that need no legal reason. It appears that Constitutional rule of law doesn’t matter. How does this make you feel? It gets me angry.

    First thing is stop labeling every arguement as liberal and conservative. That divides the audience right off the bat. this is about a change of mindset, alot of years of indoctrination need to be relearned. Talk about liberty, the real meaning of our rights in the Constitution. Putting it under the above names will only fail the American public unless you want another civil war. May I ask first who out there know the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto, this country has been following this for over a hundred years. Follow the money.

    Ron Paul is unfortunately right on.
    I’m Canadian and I’m very concerned for all of us because if the U.S. goes bankrupt we are going to be in a bad way to say the least.

    Our Country of Canada is doing much better than the U.S. financially but we still have FAR TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT.

    That’s why I like Ron Paul. He is the only coming out and saying we have too much government in our lives.

    For the past 15 years, Congress, Democrats & Republicans, have sold American Industry to foreign shores. We currently have a 12 trillion dollar national debt, the majority of which is 2-year t-bills owed to foreign governments. Over the past two years we have quadrupled the US money supply. In 1945 millions of men came home from WWII. They married and had children around 1946. These children turn 65 in 2011.
    We have trillions of dollars of Social Security and Medicaid promises made to these children of the WWII veterans that we do not have the money to pay, the credit to borrow, the money supply to double, or the industry to tax to support it. It is simple mathmatics, don’t take my word for it…research it for yourselves.
    Big, little, short, tall, Left, Right, Gay, Straight, Rich, or Poor; Life for us all is about to change. Government can not help us. We must help ourselves. Prepare! Store food and take steps toward self-sufficiency. The real American Hero is he and she who provide for others by their own hand and of their own free will.

    “Unfortunately, the Ron Paul camp won’t drop their unconstitutional religious agenda, and so the young voters will keep them from winning, because to some people their freedom is worth more than their money.”

    It never ceases to amaze me, how some people can write, but have never mastered the ability to read.
    For starters the so called “Ron Paul Camp” has never tauted religion in its agenda. Because those who choose to embrace their religious faith support Ron Paul, does not mean everything he stands for is religion based. Just as everyone who supported Bill “Slick Willie” Clinton is not a Lying Lecherous Adulterer. The fact that Freedom of Religion is one of the most revered rights that this Nation was founded upon, leaves one to question if you ever graduated grade school. If you did, then your ignorance of the Constitution must be a matter of choice. However; fear not your right to choose ignorance over knowledge is protected under that Constitution.
    As for the youth of America not supporting Ron Paul, you must be kidding. College Students are among his most ardent and vocal supporters. To be ignorant is your right, to denounce that ignorance is mine.

    More laws to control the extent of how much our politicians power can reach. These jokers have overstepped their bounds and must be held accountable for the failure of their actions. We, their employers, must remove their elitist, self serving pay hikes, personal healthcare and pensions and take exactly what we say they will get….not what they say they will get. We are responsible for letting them get away with this outrageous behavior, now it’s our responsibility to take it away.

    The only way is to elect the bastards out! We have to find the right people running for office that are true conservative. Go to Liberty PAC, Ron Paul is the Honorary Chairman and their goal is to help fund and elect true conservatives, pro-constitution, pro-liberty, pro-American sovereignty candidates at the Federal and State levels. So stop the crying and whining and get involved NOW! He supports John Dennis who is going up against Nancy Pelosi in 8th district in California and supports many others liberty minded people. I threw fifty bucks to his campaign. Lord knows I want that HAG out she is has caused enough grief for America! Now GO get involved and spread the word!!! Thank you and long live liberty and America

        And if you save it, they will tax it away from you and spend it for the ‘greater good’ and ‘welfare’ of the state.

        Why should you be able to save $50 when there are poor people with no money in their bank account? (yes, that really is Congress’ viewpoint apparently)

    Although he has sealed and hidden access to his birth certificate, I don’t personally believe it is because it would show he is not a citizen. If that were the case, Slick Willie would have seen to it that was known in the primary.
    Which leaves one to question, what else might a birth certificate reveal, that the first proclaimed Black President of the United States not want anyone to see?

    In “Common Sense” by Thomas Pain he talks about all the rejected petitions to King George III. They had to wait as long 5 months to get their rejection. We have it as quick as we can click the remote. Could we possibly imagine having to wait months for an answer?!? However, our founding fathers gave the “King” all the time in the world to let us know that we are his subjects. We have it real time. Countrymen, understand Who grants us our rights, and who grants us bondage. November is coming! Be ready! Washington is not our “King”!!!!

    This is not an issue of Health Care. Nor is it an issue of Racism that the deceivers have tried to make it. This is an issue concerning the very foundation upon which this Nation was built. Anyone who believes that the people who oppose this Idiotic Agenda, do so to deny health care to those who do not have insurance, is nothing short of Moronic.
    This is a Constitutional issue…This is an issue of Democracy, the majority of Americans have spoken, and this Administration has sent a resounding answer in response.
    SCREW YOUR DEMOCRACY…The Liberal Nazis Fascist rule this Nation Now.
    Your rights are now what we tell you they are.
    To those who believe the Federal Government is the supreme law, I say this…
    Only a Liberal Nazi or a Conservative Fascist (to be fair) would not know that the Federal Government is not the supreme law of this land. It is the Constitution, which guarantees the protections of the people as the supreme power, not the Government.
    The majority rules, if Obama and his fellow Democrats’ have not noticed the polls clearly reflect the Nays nearly have it 3 to 1. The people have spoken, and the Government chooses not to listen. This clearly and irrefutably says one thing; the Government of America has been over thrown. The Government of this nation has always been by the grace of the people’s majority, and these protections are insured by the supreme law of the land, our Constitution and not the courts. No court, not even the almighty Supreme Court has the authority to rewrite the Constitution. The only way for this bill to become a just law is by amending the Constitution, then three quarters of the States must ratify that amendment, and that will never happen. If this process is not followed, then lower you’re American Flags to half mask, for our nation has been conquered from with-in.
    To force the will of the minority upon the majority is only done in a Fascist system. Here again the supreme law affords the people…not a right, but a duty to remove such an illegal government. We must by mandate of our Constitution, enforce the will of the majority by way of the vote. If this process is hindered in any way, it calls upon us to remove such a Government by the force of arms, but only if all democratic means have failed.
    If the latter comes to pass, a whole lot of folks are going to really need health care.
    When the nation that claims to champion freedom, imprisons per capita more of its citizens than any other nation in the world, cries first for Judicial Reform, not laws that will allow this Illegal Fascist Government to imprison even more.
    Economic / Financial Reform, and most assuredly Political Reform, are needed long before a Trojan Horse called Health Care Reform.
    Health care reform began as nothing more than a decoy, to take our attention off of “The FED”, and the issue of big money Wall Street reform.
    Of this illegal government I ask…
    The majority of those opposing this law being forced upon them, are willing to die for their freedoms, are you as willing to die trying to deny us those freedoms?
    The Supreme law in this country is, and always will be the will of the majority, not the will of the Federal Government, not the will of the Democratic or Republican Parties, and most assuredly not the will of the self anointed “Almighty Obama”, our leader…our dictator… Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil!!!
    Oh my God, what have we done…? May god have mercy on our doomed Nation?
    For today the Democratic Republic known as America has been overthrown.

    Funny thing…it’s not actually “health care” at all, but what I’ve termed the “illness manipulation and control system.”

    Not a single penny of the new hundreds of billions (let’s face it, it’ll be well over a trillion a year extra once we hear the full (publically released) ramifications…it always is!) is going to actually go towards “health” but it will almost all go to pharmaceutical companies, corporate hospitals, multinational insurance companies, and a fair portion of what’s left over will go towards bribing those who willmake things worse for the people, and more profitable to kill them off.

    If there ever is a “health care system” developed–we do NOT have one now, despite the wilfully ignorant claims that we do!–it will consist of natural foods first, natural remedies second (where applicable, of course), and pharmaceutical and surgical procedures last. In an emergency, there is simply no substitute for anasthesia and surgery to rebuild a shattered body…but even there, nature is still the original source of ideas and raw materials for all of the drugs in the toxic pharmacopea!

    I have heard various scentific treatises on what was used for anaesthetic during ancient brain surgeries (they have found numerous mummies and skeletons around the world with evidence of healed skulls which were obviously skillfully (for their time) opened and resealed), and the prime theories consist of opium and cannabis as the only available compounds during those periods.

    Long-n-short: There is only MONEY in Barry’s “health care” package…there will be NO NET BENEFITS in public health, with the exception of illegal immigrants, and the financial health of the big money players that have effectively gutted what could have developed into a true health care system…were it not deliberately destroyed in the name of government and corporate greed.

    Just wait until you see what Codex Alimentarius and Monsanto have planned! It’s going to be even more fun when all the parties get together out in the open!

    I am saddened by the events of the last few days. Our country will go bankrupt. This is what they want. They want America to become a welfare state and there is nothing that we can do short of an armed response or military coup, which has it’s own set of problems. I would love to see Ron in the white house but I am sad to say that it will never happen because he doesn’t have the support of the people who are really in power. What else are we supposed to do? Washington has proven that they do not listen to us or even care for that matter. They are doing whatever they want and trying to divide and conquer us at the same time and it is working. I pray that we the people will come together and take this county back before it is too late.

      I too would like to see Dr Paul in the White House, BUT it would take that AND a 67% majority of both Dem and Rep CONSERVATIVES voting to reverse the Socialist trend.

      Given the gerrymandered district that keep Dems like Barny Frank in a permanent seat, its not likely that the pendulum will ever swing that far right again. Its doubtful that ObamaCare will ever be reversed once a few million more begin getting Free Health care.

      Sadly but I do believe Dr Paul is again correct… “National Bankruptcy will ultimately Repeal ObamaCare”

      That’s an easy thing to say but , it is my opinion that this government is not going to stop destroying our freedoms and the only way, as a free people, that we are going to stop them is to either push for several of our states to seceed from the union and go our separate way , and if they force us to defend our right to remain free, then it may be time once again to go head to head with this god damnnned socialist government .
      It is also my opinion that These socialists pr!cks are going to push this nation into civil war.
      The republicans and the democrats who are in charge of this government are Socialists. They were elected by people who want socialism. Unfortunately, freedom loving Americans are out numbered by these socialists, so the only way that we are going to remain free is through the secession of several states from the union.

    Keep up the good work. This is a year of just restricting bill approvals as much as possible. As soon as conservatives have control of congress a lot needs to be reversed. Also future budgets must be restricted to 50 or 60 per cent of the request. This will squeeze things so that changes are forced.

    It is quite obvious House of Representatives is going to do what ever they decide is best for the country, ignoring the WILL OF THE PEOPLE! As far as the Senate, we may have a chance with Scott Brown but this is not written in concrete either. Look what happened in the House, several Democrats stated they where going to vote NO to the Healthcare Bill but due to bribery and Sweet Heart deals, they betrayed the American Citizens and voted for it. Is there no Honor now days?

    But what really bothers me is how Obama could run for the highist Office in the United States of America without displaying the legitiment Birth Certificate? All other canidates had to display their Birth Certificate. I know he has sealed his files but doesn’t but if he has nothing to hide, why not display them, there is something fishy here.

    I have been doing alot of researching into the matter of the “Missing Birth Certificate”. I have seen a copy of certificate from Hawaii which was determined to be a fake. I have seen a video in which “His grandmother stated that her grandson is about to be the President of the United States, and is so proud because she was present DURING HIS BIRTH IN KENYA, in the delivery room.” There was also a copy of the “CERTIFICATE COPY OF REGISTRATION OF BIRTH” for Coast Province of Kenya, No. 495 and signed by the Deputy Registrar.

    Could this be why Obama sealed his records?

    God Bless America and I hope this can all be resolved soon so America can once again get back on track to the wonderful country we once had.

    The Vedio also displayed a Kenya Birth Certificate

      Ron Paul is acutely aware of the history of this country’s debt. He knows and has talked publicly and written frequently about this debt. The difference, John, is the size of the 1933 debt compared to today’s – specifically as a percentage of our GDP. But even more critical is who holds that debt. In 1933, the federal debt was covered by US banks, corporations, and bonds. Today, a vast share of our debt is held by foreign entities.

      Why is that important? Because until we can reverse our trade deficit (particularly with China) we can never pay off this foreign debt. And the only jobs that Obama’s stimulus package has created (or saved) are government jobs and academic grants. Guess what? Neither China nor any other country is going to import either.

    In the presidential debate, Dr. Paul said he would get rid of the IRS his first day in office.
    Having studied the federal tax code for more than 10 years, I have found that the words such as: Taxpayer, Income, U.S. Citizen, and other terms have defined meanings in the tax code that are not what we think they are. I would urge Dr. Paul to turn his staff loose to investigate the fraudulent application of the income tax on ordinary Americans. A good place to start would be losthorizons.com and read the book “Cracking the Code.” Also, if the media would investigate the fraud and publicise it, it would create public awareness of the truth and would put an end to the scheme.
    The pathetic consequence of the tax code is impoverishing the people of this country and empowering a bloated government.
    Please Dr. Paul, look into this and spread the word to our fellow Americans.
    The truth will strengthen your augument to dump the jack-booted thugs aka IRS and free the people.

      To Aging Bull,
      The solution may be a peaceful civil disobedience movement to withhold taxes for Constitutional Legal Cause.

      But with Obama hiring 16,500 new IRS agents, (new jobs stimulus program) we will likely loose all of our earthly possessions but that’s what many of the original Colonists had to do.

      But what might work…
      - Start SAVING by buying and holding Silver or Gold coins.
      - Stop using Credit Cards, just stop.
      -Use CASH only.
      -Barter and Trade using Silver or Gold. when ever possible
      -STARVE THE BEAST!
      -But likely within 5 years the Beast (Government) will launch and force a new national ID card on everyone to control the rampant Tax Evasion.
      Then finally “no man may buy or sell lest he has the mark…”

    Between the G.H.W Bush 2 terms, Willie Clinton 2 terms and G. W. Bush 2 terms, this country has been chopped down to “life support level”.
    Obama on the other hand has been placed to “PULL THE PLUG”

    Under this philosophy we don’t have the right to roads, schools, law enforcement, a military security. All the acts of derugalation have helped create health problems in the country. I think you’re great man, Dr Paul. But the military budget is what’s destrying America, not health care.

      Actually, if you’ve listened to any constitutional thinker, as Paul appears to be, they probably know that the military industrial complex is what’s destroying our country along with other things such as health care. They’ve said that all along when talking about foreign policy and entangling alliances. But this kind of health care reform package, coming from whatever party, would probably be endorsed by that party whether it was the best policy or not. i.e., if Bush endorsed this type of Obama care policy, the Republicans would most likely follow but now they reject it because their party is not in power. These regulations on insurance companies will only exasperate the debt, and hurt health care. Medicare had to be cut to accommodate Obamacare or what ever the term is. And taxes on hospital equipment and the like, such as wheel chairs are going to pay for it. Unfortunately the ugly reality is that insurance is based on risk, even when we get ill with cancer which is out of our control. If you believe that each individual has a right to health care, then that is another form of entitlement. Rights and privileges are two different things. To really help poor working people and middle class working people to be able to deal with escalating costs of anything, it has to be determined what causes prices to rise. The biggest culprit as to why health care costs, and other costs continue to rise, is inflation. Who inflates the money supply? The Fed does. Who takes your earnings out of your pay check throughout the year? The IRS does. If we don’t address the inflation problem and the wage tax issue by abolishing the IRS, and the Fed, the government dole is going to continue to be an alternative. Government can’t handle all these things that some people feel we as individuals have a right to. Even though the founders and the constitution are flawed as everything is, the logic behind the constitution still and will always hold true: Government is supposed to stay, as Judge Napolitano always open his show with, “within the confines of the constitution.” Health care in the US has been getting progressively worse, along with the welfare state, including corporate welfare, the war fare state, and all these entitlements that many people feel they deserve. As for Federal tax, just like the bailouts, it is another form of redistribution of wealth, transferring our earned dollars to individuals and corporations who didn’t produce to earn, or who made irresponsible business decisions, and expect the entitlement of a safety net from government borrowing, printing and taxing.

    There moral understanding is darkened and their reasoning is clouded. They live in their vanity and the emptiness of their souls and the futility of their minds.They are self-banished from their creator because of their ignorance that is deep seated in them due to the hardness of their heart and the insensitiveness of their moral nature. In their spiritual apathy they have become callous, past feeling, reckless and have abandoned themselves to unbridled sensuality, eager and greedy to indulge in every form of impurity.
    Dear reader,

    Although I am disappointed with the health care reform bill, I believe it is very short sighted to blame its passage for the financial ruin of this country . The financial mess we (and the rest of the world) are in has taken decades to reach this point. The erosion of financial regulations have placed all the power i.e. money into the hands of a very few at the expense and ultimate demise of the people of the world; Greece being the latest example and continuation of Haiti. Our capital system is a hugh Ponzi scheme. The US is already bankrupt and propped up artificially by the Fed and the Plunge Protection Team. But the bubble will burst eventually and we, the taxpayers will pay for it (again)while the people who made it happen will ….. I don’t know, its like they are sawing off the limb they are sitting on or like a flea sucking all the blood from a dog, which is now dead. I don’t get it. Will they take their worthless dollars or Euros and go to their secluded island somewhere or perhaps back to their original planet? Greedy bankers, speculators and corporations are responsible for worldwide financial collapse and the privatization of the world. Fair Trade is not fair and the Free Market is not free. I truly believe that the government doesn’t run the show, it only gets the blame for whatever goes wrong – good cover. The media is totally controlled and perpetuates the spin. The hand full of people controlling the money game are calling the shots. We need serious financial and election reform NOW. As far as health care, it is far from perfect but is at least a first step. In a nut shell, I think a huge asteroid is what the Earth needs to straighten it out.

    We need Ron Paul in the oval office. He understands the issues and realizes that the present congress and administration is driven by a socialist agenda.
    Clearly this country is now run by left wing ideologues who have demonstrated that they are not concerned about the needs of the american people.
    When will our people wake up and see thru the malevolent machinations of this current administration.

    Here is the real problem………we have ONE PARTY SYSTEM!!!

    All this divide and conquer. People need to realize that BOTH parties have expanded govt like there is no tomorrow. People on the left AND right HAVE to come together and realize this. Until this happens nothing……….nothing will change…..ever!
    The right does not get that ‘socialism’ did not arrive under Obama. We have ‘socialist’ or ‘corporatist ‘warfare for crying out loud.
    We live in a corptocracy…………a govt bought up by corporations.

    Congress for the Lobbyists by the Lobbyists.

    All problems trace back to the Federal Reserve!

      Maria… ne’er a truer word has been spoken.

      Ron Paul re-iterates this many times over, how both parties say the same thing, just with different words.

      A good book to read is “Grand Illusion: The Myth of Voter Choice in a Two-Party Tyranny” by Teresa Amato.

    Talk is cheap. The bottom line is, “we the people” need to DO something. Obviously our leaders are totally oblivious to the will of the people. They are like abusive parents who tell their children “it”s for your own good and you will thank us someday”. The president and other leaders have shown total disregard for those they serve. It is degrading and demoralizing. Regardless of party affiliation, we all need to join the Tea Party movement and show up to vote on election day. We need to keep the heat on by writing letters, making phone calls and sending e-mails once a week. We need to show up at the Town Hall meetings and at our representatives’ offices. We need to make them all miserable and then boot them out of office asap. Don’t let your anger wane. Turn up the heat.

      There are many things that can be done and are being done. One of the easiest and most effective is to get politically involved. Regardless of your party, join the National Precinct Alliance -= http://www.nationalprecinctalliance.org, become a Precinct Chairman and help drive the parties back to the right on the political spectrum. That and identifying/voting for Constitutional conservative candidates are the only effective way to reclaim our heritage.

    Inflation is coming and the countries who have holdings against us are going to come in for their dues owed by us or they will quit lending to us. Then the financial bubble will burst. The Fed. policy will eventually derail this country . The housing crises is far from over with not musch hope in the near future . The problems have been stacking up for years and we are now in a fight that I do think is not going to end up in our favor , we have become too complacent. Every civilized country is on the choppng block and we are there with them. Reality is not pretty to look at these days.

      To Mitch E
      Unfortunately we the people simply don’t have the Fire Power to resist this overwhelming force, violent resistance is futile.
      Better to align with the Military and local police to support the “peaceful resistance”

      Its going to be very difficult for many, we will be facing similar events as the Iranians facing with their totalitarian regime.

      Remember PASSIVE RESISTANCE
