Revolution against liberals is brewing

  • Follow Letters

President Barack Obama cannot kill the spirit of America.

Obama said everybody has to pay taxes because everybody's got to have some skin in the game. Well, this is talking truth to welfare. The market votes every day, and it is speaking every day by going down. This is what Americans are thinking.

There is a revolution out there. Here are a few examples of what is happening across America that the media are not reporting.

There were protests in Denver against Obama on Tuesday, Feb. 17. Michelle Malkin and friends of hers led the protest.

Obama was protested in Mesa, Ariz., at Dobson High School, where his event to sign the ridiculous mortgage bailout took place. Students in advance placement class laughed at what Obama was saying, and they disagreed profoundly with what Obama said. These are high-school students.

On Feb. 17, Rick Santelli reported from the Chicago Board of Trade, berating Obama for his handling of the economy.

Let me give you a brief overview of the parameters of the Obama housing plan. The cost of this plan is $75 billion. There are two groups of homeowners that are being looked at by the plan.

The first group is made up of people who cannot afford their mortgages and have fallen behind on their monthly payments.

Many of the people here in Group 1 took out loans they were never going to be able to afford. That means somebody knew from Day 1 they were never going to be able to pay back the loans. This first group comprises about 3 million people.

The second group is larger. It is made up of about 10 million households. They can afford their monthly payments, but their houses are worth less than what is owed on their mortgages. If they want to stay in their homes, they will have no trouble doing so, but some may choose to walk out voluntarily rather than continue to make payments on an investment that may never pay off.

The responsible people in the second group are going to get nothing. Obama is going to bail out the first group. They have contributed directly to the misfortune of the second group. The 3 million who can't pay, who were never going to pay, are the ones getting bailed out.

That is typical Obama and liberalism. You award the losers but punish the achievers. Government will be the focus of all economic activity, and is going to pick the winners and the losers. If you are an achiever, you are the loser. You are going to pay for the bailout of all the losers who refuse to pay their bills.

Liberals want to create dependents. They want to give somebody something for nothing.

carcraft, there is a huge

carcraft, there is a huge difference... Obama requested GM's CEO to resign (did not actually fire him because Obama can't). You know why that could not happen to Ford? That's right, they did not take Fed money. If Wagoner would have steered his ship responsibly, he too would not have had to take Fed money. The attorneys were fired as political retribution. You are making a weak comparison.

bdittle: What is your opinion

bdittle: What is your opinion of the current administration not wanting to take back TARP money from a large bank that received funds? Just curious.

O'Bama had every right to

O'Bama had every right to fire that SOB. When you accept money on certain terms and then against them, bye bye. How is that you scream "socialist" when it comes to the gov't loaning our money w/strings, but when WE get loans (car or home) there are strings with that? If there weren't strings attached to that money (a la Bush) then the corps & CEO gives themselves Big Bonus' and THEN still want more money (ya know to decorate the office to the tune of $100,000). No- I expected that lowlife to get fired. As far as i am concerned, O'Bama is doing fine so far.

GGPap, there are many protests in the streets that the BimbObama minions, the MSM isn't bothering to cover. You will see million on April 15th nation wide. They will be anything but "isoleted and trivial".The same in 2010 and 1012 at the ballot box.

Most banks took the money

Most banks took the money whether they needed it or not. The Govt offered and they accepted. When they realized the possible ramifications, they decided it was a hot potato. More interesting is that the govt does not want to take it back.

Bizarre letter since Obama's

Bizarre letter since Obama's popularity is soaring, and he is delivering success with his economic policies and his handling of foreign crises. In fact, he's already had one more success than his predecessor as evidenced of his leadership and decision-making in the Somali Pirate affair. Success is something that right-wingers hate, which is why they constantly call for failure. Again, why do they hate America so badly?
Posted by shivas on Mon Apr 13, 2009 7:00 AM....Shivas, such lies are totally irresponsible and no matrer how many times you tell them wont make them true. BimbObama's job ratings are steadily falling, he has NOTHING to show for bailing out the banks (they still ain't lending folks money), unemployemnt is at 8.5 percent and still rising, N. Korea has given him the middle finger salute with their rocket launch, and you can't name ONE thing he has accomplished with his economic policies other than spend more money than all admins before him put together startng with G Wasinton, tripling our national debt. Facing off with four pirates ain't exactly the same as facing off with al Queda and kicking their azzes.

when you take money without

when you take money without knowing the ramifications and you own a huge corporation, what that's the White House's fault now too. Please.They wanted money any way they could get it without strings so they could do what they wanted. O'Bama is damned if does or damned if he doesn't with the republican party who are you kidding? Even when he does right- Republicans are picking it apart- its really telling of what sore losers they are.

To the extent we have taxes,

To the extent we have taxes, they are taxes WITH representation. The difference should be fairly easy to grasp, even by someone such as you, PT! The problems conservatives have today are almost exactly the opposite of the problems the colonists faced 235 years ago. The colonists had no elections; conservatives just lose them....
Posted by effete elitist liberal on Mon Apr 13, 2009 9:05 AM....If our Republican representatives are not allowed to even introduce amendments to DIMocRAT legislation in the House, then we are being taxes without representation. That will change in 2010.

tiger: he held office for 3 terms. It can happen to any President, if they are written in, they can either accept what the American people want or not. He accepted.
Posted by toldya on Mon Apr 13, 2009 10:54 AM....since the onstitution was amended to restrict being President to two terms, even a write in can not seat the President a third term.

Toldya, the reason there were

Toldya, the reason there were no strings on the money given out during the Bush admin was because the DIM Congress who wrote the bill didn't put any on it and Bush signed it. If GMs CEO shold have been told to resign, then why haven't there been the same done to CEOs of Bank of America, Citigroup, et al? They took the money to provide loans with but chose to buy other banks instead, even in China.

Obama didn't even have the

Obama didn't even have the right to request him to resign, show where the constitution gives a President power over the CEO of a company? Bush could fire the attorneys for what ever reason he wanted becuase he has the constitutional authority! It is not a weak comparison. Obama will fire many of Bush's appointees (and some of his own) as is his right and authority. Again I ask where is the authority to bail out any car company, guarantee warrenties, fire personnel, set salaries and have the power to take over privately owned companies? It doesn't exist and so the government has no right based on the tenth ammendment, "all powers not granted to the federal govenment belong to the states and the people.... " Obama and the congress have no power to do what they are doing and WILL GAIN THAT POWER BECAUSE IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO WORRY ABOUT PETTY CR*P THAN THE COSTITUTION!!!!

The showdown is evident.

The showdown is evident. This Country has never been more polarized, not just with Liberal v Conservative. It's now become North v South, Black v White, X Box gen v Baby-boomers and Affluent v Financially challenged. I don't speak politics anywhere, anymore, anytime. It's a sure way to a fist fight and night in Jail.

The current tax code is a monstrosity. No one fully understands it. It would be very gracious to say that's the reason that Obama's Cabinet nominees can't seem to pay their taxes. I think they simply want to spend other peoples' money while keeping their own.
Our system punishes success. While you're ranting about the "evil rich", go try to get a job from a poor person. See how that works out.

I would also like to add that

I would also like to add that what we have is taxation witout representation. An elected official, who is supposed to represent often doesn't represent anything except his own best interest. I find it hard to believe that if we all had a vote in this country to bail out all these failed businesses that the bailout would pass. I don't feel that congress or our president represented any of us in our best interest in this case. And since we spent so much to bailout these companies as an investiment, do we really think in the long run if any of them become profitable that our taxes will be lowered since our goverment should be reaping in the dividends from those investiments?

BDITTLE, sorry I couldn't respond earlier. I was doing that awful 4 letter thing, work. Now, you say you don't gamble on politics. As the church lady says..."Now, isn't that special!" You don't have enough confidence in your statement to back it with bucks speaks of the jelly spine of the libs, with old big ears leading the way. God help us!
