WELCOME TO THE CONTROVERSY! "This nation cannot be overthrown by battle. It would never allow itself to be. America can only be overthrown by removing its reason for greatness, its exceptionalism and existence as a force for world influence for good and freedom. The driving purpose that led our brothers and sisters to shed their blood for a new country and which drove a people and a President to hold fast to the premise that the nation could not be divided into two in the bloody civil war. Our vision of defeating evil, which gives our men and women in the military valor and a willingness to sacrifice in each of our American centuries, has been freedom. The greatest force for freedom has always been the Constitution of the United States. Now, this government, of the people disregards the people. Now these rights, for the people, seem to have been invalidated by a force that has no constitutional right to do so." - Author Steven Clark Bradley

What I Am Prepared NOT To Do? by Steven Clark Bradley

We have all heard about and watched the Obama Administration pass laws, writing executive orders and creating a shadow government that is literally breaking down the cornerstone of our existence as a nation different than all others. A nation takes on the image of its leadership. Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and a host of others regard America as simply a nation in a planet-full of them. For them, The United States of America possesses nothing special, nothing unique and they are dead set on impoverishing this nation to put us in our place, as they see it. Liberty, as enshrined in the Constitution of the United States of America is that cornerstone that holds up a once proud and determined people. Take away the cornerstone and the whole house of cards will come tumbling down.

Perhaps, you have asked yourselves, “What can I do?” Yet, perhaps we should draw a line in the political and social sand and declare the things we are NOT willing to do. I have asked myself this question and there are many things I am NOT willing to do as America stumbles down Barack Obama’s long and winding road into Communist failure and totalitarianism.

1. I am not willing to be forced to accept a government health plan or a card with all my medical, legal, educational and financial records held in its memory.

Just such a card will become mandatory if Barack Obama’s healthcare plan is signed into law. I will say right here, if this becomes law, no matter what penalties are imposed on me, monetarily or imprisonment, which is also prescribed in this bill, I will not purchase an insurance policy until I choose to do so, if ever. I will also not accept a government smart card regardless of the difficulties or dangers I will face. What are you prepared NOT to do?

It is time to insist that the constitution be imposed, once again, as the law of this nation. Think about it, my fellow patriots. If Barack Obama can continue to impugn the rights and the limits that are set forth in the constitution, he can do nearly whatever he wants. Where is it said that the people have the right to speak out, demonstrate, petition, demand and refuse? It is in the constitution. Take a look at Nancy Pelosi’s distain and loathing for the constitution in a recent CNS News interview after being asked if she thought the constitution had any provision to force the American people to purchase insurance, and if not, what gave her and congress the right to force Americans to buy anything at all.

“Where specifically does the Constitution authorize Congress to force Americans to purchase a particular good or service such as health insurance?” CNSNews.com asked the speaker's office.

“If it is the Speaker’s belief that there is a provision in the Constitution that does give Congress this power, does she believe the Constitution in any way limits the goods and services Congress can force an individual to purchase?" CNSNews.com asked. "If so, what is that limit?”

The answer given by the Speaker’s office is very telling of her complete disregard for the constitution she is sworn to preserve, protect and defend.

CNSNews.com: “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?”

Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”

CNSNews.com: “Yes, yes I am.”

Pelosi then shook her head before taking a question from another reporter. Her press spokesman, Nadeam Elshami, then told CNSNews.com that asking the speaker of the House where the Constitution authorized Congress to mandate that individual Americans buy health insurance as not a "serious question."

“You can put this on the record,” said Elshami. “That is not a serious question. That is not a serious question.”

Pelosi’s office also told CNS News, “If it is the Speaker’s belief that there is a provision in the Constitution that does give Congress this power, does she believe the Constitution in any way limits the goods and services Congress can force an individual to purchase?" CNSNews.com asked. "If so, what is that limit?”

lshami responded that Congress has “broad power to regulate activities that have an effect on interstate commerce. Congress has used this authority to regulate many aspects of American life, from labor relations to education to health care to agricultural production.”

I am not willing to let the government tell me what I can drive, eat, say, watch or disagree with. Are you?

These Marxist thugs are clearly out to rob the America people blind and unless the constitution is followed by this cabal of evil men and women called the United States government, they should all be impeached and imprisoned for looting the people’s treasure.

It has been a depressing sight to witness the nation going down the failed road of Mao, Lenin, Stalin and Hitler with this President. Barack Obama swore to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Yet, I cannot think of one thing this socialist president has done that could be construed to be something that has helped America follow the rule of law. Now, America has even been called a ‘Banana Republic.’ The definition of a banana republic is a government that passes laws for the rest of us and expects obedience from the rest of us but contravenes the very laws they pass any time the conniving thugs in Washington wish to do so.

Here’s another writer’s opinion:

After 30 years of trying to defy economic gravity, the US is well on the way to becoming the world's largest banana republic. If the current level of government mismanagement continues, within 20 years the US economy will be comparable to that of Mexico. With a more modest level of mismanagement, this will occur in less than 10 years but under much better economic circumstances.

“The US government has been following this same path due to ever-increasing balance of payment problems. It has managed to give away, or allowed and encouraged US multinationals to move, manufacturing facilities from the US mainland to foreign locations. These industries previously provided the backbone of US exports to the world and the reason that the US had become the most prosperous country in the world. These industrial losses have resulted in the almost unbelievable current account deficit seen (much less contemplated) in the history of the world.

“But, because the US government apparently believes that the economic factors that have ruined Mexico do not apply to it, the government has done nothing to remedy the situation. Consequently we find ourselves now in the beginning stages of an inevitable substantial devaluation of the dollar and decrease in American standard of living. The recent rapid drop in the value of the dollar with prospective further devaluations are simply an unavoidable consequence of these cavalier government policies.”

2. I insist on knowing how the money I pay in taxes is spent.

Since the end of 2008 until now, congress has raised the debt limit by a lofty 120 percent and since that same period the America’s national debt, that what we owe the whole world has grown to105 trillion dollars. Such breaches of trust of the United States Government only cause the American people to more fully distrust the lunatics sworn to protect us. Such comedy and lunacy brought down all the great powers throughout history, and it shall be no different with America, unless the obviously lethal dose of economic, social and political poison is purged from the nation’s veins.

The process of taking a great nation into such a dishonorable classification as a debtor nation does not happen overnight. In fact, no one will ever convince me that the almost flawless takeover of the nation’s economy, the coupe d’├ętat of the constitutional limits of power was simply planned and executed over night. It is clear that the takeover of 1/7 of the nation’s economy in their healthcare charade and the government’s takeover of the automobile industry, the proposed silencing of dissents through what has come to be called Internet Neutrality and the government’s long-armed reach ultimately into every business boardroom, thusly dictating what one does at work and how much a company can pay its workers are all more than individual decisions made in a vacuum. This is an orchestrated implementation of a well designed, masterfully nurtured, impeccably implemented plan to end American power and to merge us into a powerful force with the world, over which Barack Obama will rule, manipulate and gain control.

3. I will not submit to the Copenhagen treaty which is to be signed in December, 2009

It has all taken place over a period of time; softening up the people and changing the way we think from early ages. Such has been the decades-long transformation, which has only culminated in the nation’s first socialist president who seeks to instill fear and dread and to take any measures he deems necessary to bring about the world according to Barack Obama. First, we impose taxes that have never been approved as constitutional. Over time, we overlooked the things that this nation’s government has said were prescribed in the Constitution of the United States of America. Prayer was abolished in public and blamed on the constitution’s establishment clause separating Church and State. Every American will say you should believe as you want in America. For, it was the founding fathers’ will that we have a ‘God-honoring’ society but never a Godless one. Listen to these very informative videos to see what is just around the corner, the end of the United States and the establishment of a one world government.

Sir Christopher Monckton: Copenhagen treaty eviscerates U.S. sovereignity

By: Mark Tapscott
Editorial Page Editor
10/20/09 8:14 AM EDT

Sir Christopher Monckton is a global warming skeptic. Former Vice President and Nobel Prize winner Al Gore has for years refused to accept Monckton's repeated challenge to a public debate on global warming.
He's also a very close reader of the proposed UN Climate Change Treaty President Obama is expected to sign along with other world leaders in Copenhagen in a few weeks. Monckton says that 200-page treaty cedes U.S. sovereignity to the UN, mandates a massive transfer of wealth from the U.S. and Europe to pay our "Climate Debt" to the Third World, and creates a new enforcement mechanism to make it all happen.

Is Monckton right? I don't know because I haven't yet read the treaty (But I soon will be). Here's his warning about the Copenhagen Treaty, and here's the draft text of the treaty. Judge for yourself. Here is my pledge. I am an American. I have been to many, many countries on this planet and appreciate Europe, Asia and Africa. Nevertheless, I am an American. I will not bow to any man or woman. I will not seek to impoverish any anyone. I will not seek to belittle a fellow human being and I will not submit to any force that works ill against my nation, including this president. He is a traitor, a communist and a force for evil in the world. If you love this nation, I am sure you feel the same, for your freedom is hanging by a thread.

4. I refuse to accept that my taxes will be once again used to kill unborn children

The killing of more than forty million of our children, yet unborn is nothing less than American society’s version of honoring the gods as the world of antiquity did when they made their children pass through fire as appeasement sacrifices to the gods of pleasure, debauchery, lust, greed and power. Plentiful are such examples of American governmental abuse of power and it has been the imposition of the view of the constitution as a living document that has made the cherished document to approve of things that the writers would have never imagined nor condoned. This interpretation of the Constitution has allowed us to mold the cherished document to our liking, while refusing to pattern our lives and behavior according to it. This is the rule of anarchy.

American leaders, both past and present, in the Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court, have made the historic parchment to say that it is correct to kill unborn children, to take over major industries, to force us to take government-sponsored healthcare and to limit Free Speech as well as many other obtuse things that the founding fathers had never envisioned and which Barack Obama is doing with impunity. Little by little, the excusing of presidential usurpation and disregard for the Law of the land has encouraged un-American leaders just like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barney Franks to abuse and breach the clear and well-defined limits of power set forth in the Constitution without interruption. If unchecked, it will spell the end of the United States of America.

5. The now signed hate-crime bill will not stop me from declaring that I believe homosexuality is wrong and that Same-sex marriage is immoral.

It is only logical that every crime we face is a hate crime. The only thing this new law creates is yet another way to limit free speech. So, whether in church or in any venue where I choose to state my belief, I will do so regarless of how much difficulty it might cause me. Nothing will stop me from saying what I wish, even you, Barack Obama.

Obama signs 'hate-crimes' bill into law

'It's a very sad day for America and for religious liberties'
By Chelsea Schilling © 2009 World Net Daily

A "hate crimes" bill opponents claim will be used to crack down on Christian speech, even the reading of the Bible, was signed into law today by President Obama.

“The Senate approved the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act by a vote of 68-29 on Oct. 22 after Democrats strategically attached it to a "must-pass"
$680 billion defense appropriations plan.

“Most Rep
ublicans, although normally strong supporters of the U.S. military, opposed the bill because it hands out federal money to states and local governments in pursuit of "preventing" hate crimes. The bill creates federal protections and privileges for homosexuals and other alternative lifestyles but denies those protections to other groups of citizens.

“Obama signed the 2010 National Defense Authorization Act at a White House ceremony today. Prior to signing the act into law, Obama spoke briefly of the hate crimes bill.

“American Family Association President Tim Wildmon warned that the new law "creates a kind of caste system in law enforcement, where the perverse thing is that people who engage in non-normative sexual behavior will have more legal protection than heterosexuals. This kind of inequality before the law is simply un-American.

“Wildmon said the legislation creates possible situations where pastors may be arrested if their sermons on sexuality can be linked in even the remotest way to acts of violence.

"It threatens free speech and freedom of religion and is totally unacceptable," he said.

“As WND reported, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder admitted a homosexual activist who is attacked following a Christian minister's sermon about homosexuality would be protected by the proposed federal law, but a minister attacked by a homosexual wouldn't be.

“The Alliance Defense Fund blasted the "hate-crimes" bill, calling it "another nail in the coffin of the First Amendment."

"All violent crimes are hate crimes, and all crime victims deserve equal justice," ADF Senior Legal Counsel Erik Stanley said in a statement. "This law is a grave threat to the First Amendment because it provides special penalties based on what people think, feel, or believe. ADF will be on the front line to defend those whose free speech or free exercise of religion rights are violated by this unconstitutional law and to ultimately overturn this attack on freedom."

Obama signs 'hate-crimes' bill into law

“He said the adoption of hate crimes legislation has led to widespread suppression of speech deemed politically incorrect. The Pacific Justice Institute noted that in California, hate crimes laws are commonly invoked as a basis for further laws pushing acceptance of homosexuality in public schools and the workplace. The group also warned that use of "hate speech" terminology is also now being employed by minority religious groups in America to encourage suppression of free speech, as a prominent Hindu group called on Congress and major Internet service providers to shut down websites critical of Hinduism, including websites of Christian mission organizations.” - 'It's a very sad day for America and for religious liberties' by Chelsea Schilling

What happened to Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. is wrong, evil and should be punished to the full extent of the law, just as with any other American or international living in America, as well as illegal aliens deserve the same protections as any of us. So, why should gay people be afforded extra protection than the rest of us?

I will state publicly that I am against this lifestyle, but I would still be willing to lay down my life to save the life of a fellow man or woman, regardless of what we
disagree on or where they are from or how they swing. If Gays are allowed into the military, I believe it will be a mistake. Yet, if I found myself on a battlefield together with a fellow American warrior who happened to be gay, before stepping into death’s house, I would make sure he knew I was his brother and that he felt likewise, and we’d be transformed into each other’s keeper.

I cannot be dictated into letting go of the fact that this lifestyle is abnormal, immoral and against all that I believe pertaining to sexuality. My faith would not let me hate, for loathing is far worse than what I declare to
be abnormal. Perhaps one of the greatest things George W. Bush did as president was to very generously and humanely give the most money for research and a cure for aids than any president in history, which kills as many heterosexuals as it does homosexuals, across the globe. I do not need a law to order me to respect my fellow man, and I will not submit to legislation that limits my speech to say homosexuality is wrong.

Today, the cultural battle now rocking America concerning marriage and the right of homosexual males and females to have recognition of same-sex marriages is considered by many to be a virtual attack on civilization as we know it. Today, many states and the federal government have laws that refuse to recognize gay marriages, which Barack Obama wants to repeal.

In almost all polls taken on this subject, Americans oppose legalizing gay marriage by a 2-1 ratio. Nevertheless, gay marriage is closer than ever to becoming a reality.

6. Internet Neutrality? I will not cease to publish anything required to tell my story as I see it.

Barack Obama is ripping the constitution to shreds and doing everything it prohibits. Is this not a breach of his oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the constitution and only 11 months into his presidency, Barack Obama has imprisoned the liberty that built this nation. While taking over the banking, insurance, automobile, financial and medical industries when nothing in the constitution grants the government the power, either short term or long term to do so, is this not an impeachable offence?

Barack Obama should be impeached. But he shall never be. Our failure to resist the destruction of our country and to refuse measures such as we are witnessing has culminated into the not so slow destruction of our nation. It is with a great sadness that we are insanely roaring in applause as these thieves of liberty are robbing our children and grandchildren of their freedom, peace and treasure, which will leave them but the crumbs of self-determination and to our own demise.

A nation that is no longer able to rule themselves will always finally yield their souls to a dictator, a tyrant, a usurper, of which Barack Obama is supreme, as the people sell their birthrights for a mess of poverty porridge. We are now a nation of takers and have a grave of innovators, ‘imaginators’. We have shed the mantle of freedom and self-determination, so we have reaped the whirlwind since we have thrown our liberty to the destructive gust of socialism that will literally tear our nation apart.

That is why there are several things I am prepared not to do as the administration transforms America into a Marxist state where are all subservient to a government that will decide where you work, how much you make, what doctor you can see, what car you can drive, how much you can cool or heat your house and eventually, how long you live.

I will not be silent, I will not submit, I will not accept and I will defend any nation that commits such social terrorism as this administration is set on creating. Imprison me, torture me,, condemn me in public, lock me up even kill me, but as long as I have breath, I will declare that I am free to speak, free to disagree, free to worship as I please, free to live as long as I am able to and no government, not illegal laws that contravene the constitution can force me to do otherwise. You traitors, social terrorists, immoral workers of woe inside this government will never shut my mouth. What are you prepared not to do?

Let me conclude with one patriot’s words of warning to the American people:

Where's your grit? Paul A. Ibbetson October 30, 2009

America, where is your character, your pluck, your grit? If that question seems overly harsh and needlessly aggressive, then you are staring directly at the problem. This nation sits at the precipice of a fundamental, irreversible transformation that will make all too visible a new country that is incontrovertibly "one nation under a spineless, politically correct, brow-beaten, emasculated bunch of sheep." Is that too harsh? If you believe my words are too offensive, that I should tone it down, possibly give contemplation to all opposing views from every potential angle, if not every position within the cosmos, then, you're actually staring at the real problem.

At a time when the country is faced with an administration that wishes to transform this country into a completely socialistic nation, Americans appear to be dangerously low on grit. Some would counter the statements I have posited, as to the lack of American character in an obvious time of need, with the examples of the growing number of Americans that are participating in town halls, and the growing TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Parties. I applaud and participate in these events with great spirit and enthusiasm; however, they will not be the final weapon to defeat the forces that truly wish to destroy this nation.

I am not idealistic, nor need I be to understand the predicament this country is in and the chasm that divides where we have been as a nation, from where we are now. It is true that there have always been those within this great nation that carry within their heart desires that run counter to the betterment of the nation. We know them as the socialist, the communist, the anarchist, and all others that share similar desires that run counter to the best laid plans of our country and its founding fathers.

The presence (if not the appearance today) of these jackals within the echelons of power and influence is not a product of a sudden massive influx of anti-American cohorts, but of the ef
fect of a slow, yet progressive, erosion of our true national character. The growing masses that make up the groups of opposition fighting for the survival of the nation today in the TEA Parties, among others, could double — if not triple — in time, and may ultimately be victorious against the current threat of the Barack Obama socialist machine. While you and I work and pray for this to come to reality, the matter of American character will still lie before us, as does our ultimate destiny.

In this struggle for the short term survival of the nation, as well as our place within history, I must admit a more than ample amount of animosity at the predicament we find ourselves in as a nation, including the timidity by many to provoke our enemies to anger — even while we are battling with these same foes for the future of all we hold dear. Has the quest for individual character, moral value and spiritual salvation been permanently replaced with the need to acquiesce to moral relativism, atheism, and the will of the group collective? I pray that this is not so, while knowing full well that if we as a nation were in proper form, there would be little concern about the few who would be offended by a nation that quests for the divine while denying the alternative, socialist bonds.

I submit to you that as surely as an administration as unbelievably atrocious as that of Barack Obama could never have come to fruition in a country that carried the same national grit of the past, that we are equally destined to repeat the same calamitous scenario in the future — if we do not find this country's true American character — and firmly hold on to it.

So, my fellow America brothers and sisters, have you yet made a list of the things you are prepared not to submit to. An authority that disregards your rights is no authority at all. Such usurpations of power represent a hand of aggression and subversion and is not a power over me when it disregards the rights enshrined in the constitution, which is the only true law of the land. Over-bearing authority that disregards the constitution is to be defied, disobeyed and disarmed, by any means possible. Leaders who not only circumvent the constitution should be put out of power, and in several cases, arrested and tried for treason. Are you taking this seriously? None of this is a conspiracy. For, it is all slapping us across the face and we will either fight back or live as bound men and women; bleating sheep being led to our social slaughter.

What is a castle without a foundation?
What is faith without tribulation?
What is a marriage without a forgiving solution?
What Is America without the Constitution?
You are About To Find Out
Steven Clark Bradley

There is life bigger than ours
with hands stronger than ours
having out-stretched arms
much more far-reaching than ours
There are eyes much more
intently watching than ours
and Intent ears, forever listening
for those who have ears to hear.

We always choose to know or disbelieve,
down the road that we weave,
that which will ultimately lead to peace or strife.
There are always those troublesome forces
that dutifully troll as friends or foes,
as guides to death or life.
We shall all give an answer,
for we are certainly not silently alone,
while we toil and travail to plant our presence;
to give a sign that we were here,
but that it was not our home;
as we pave the path that will ultimately lead
to peace and yet not alone.

What Would They Say?

America, turn back to God before it's too late.
It's not religion; its relationship.
He is waitning for you.

Willing To Risk It?
It Will Not Have Been The First Time
Though, it could be the last

Want to read a novel that is so real
swear it was Obama's biography?

It's always a tough call and I agree mostly with your post. There's a ton going on in America these days to give one pause. I think, though, that the tide is changing, people are starting to get it. There was a dynamic in play that none of can deny Bush had a part in that just caused Americans to momentarily shift their thinking a little to the left. It's coming more right of center again and you can see it in a heightened popularity of Palin, a rising number of folks who call themselves conservatives, the third party movement which is largely conservative, and the recent special election in Massachusetts where Scott Brown took Kennedy's old seat. Americans can vote, and should vote.

Still, we do need more leadership from the GOP. That's one thing lacking still.
