Why Democracies Fail

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.

"Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage." by Anonymous

George Washington's Prayer

Did George Washington ever suppose that prayer would someday be outlawed in his nation?

Almighty God: We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep these United States in Thy holy protection; that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the divine author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

This prayer is engraved on a bronze tablet in Saint Paul's Chapel, Broadway and Vesey Streets, New York City, and supposedly was quoted from Franklin Steiner's "The Religious Beliefs of Our Presidents," pages 19, 20. Today, there are attacks upon this prayer claiming that Washington never wrote or prayed it. It is very difficult to discern the truth of history.

Selling Sharia As "Political Correctness"

Some observers of our present-day culture believe that Americans already live under Sharia Law. We are so PC that we euphemize Sharia Law as "Political Correctness." Under Sharia Law it is forbidden for anyone to insult Islam. We self-censor ourselves to always speak respectfully of anything to do with Islam; we disrespect ourselves, our culture, our religions and our nation in order to uplift Islam as our nation enforces Shariah law.

Last week, when we discovered that at least one Islamist Terrorist had openly infiltrated the Officer Corps of the United States Army, we stood in stunned silence as those who rule over us immediately attempted to convince us we did not see what we saw. They said we did not see a Muslim Radical gun down 44 unarmed American soldiers in their homeland. They explained that Major Hasan was just another deranged individual, whose religion was of no consequence as he committed workplace violence.

Our elitist betters have practically twisted themselves into pretzels to spin Major Nidal Hasan's act of warfare into something that they say American Christians do every day - massacre their fellows. America's media, military, society, law enforcement, authorities and politicians from the State House to the White House have been working overtime explaining, denying, excusing, dodging, blaming, and deceiving the American people. The treacherous lies of America's elites in defense of Radical Islam demonstrate their dedication to the enforcement of Shariah law.

Since September 11th, 2001, there have been 14,363 world-wide attacks by Islamists. Fifty percent of Muslims believe that Americans should be murdered because of their wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, under American Sharia Law, we are forced to not notice the Jihadis amongst us. We are silenced into submission and forced to turn our heads and look away as the evil-doers wage warfare against erstwhile free people, for to speak against the favored faith is a crime under Sharia.

It Isn't Political Correctness, It's Sharia

Be PC and See NO Evil

Bury Political Correctness at Fort Hood

It was a cold-blooded murder committed by a Jihadi follower of a wretched ideology who, because of his favored religion, had been PC-protected for many years by the United States Army.

What happened to our brave soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas is a national outrage and the American people must rise up and kill, once and for all, the evil that is political correctness. Our government, our schools, our media, all of our institutions, and even our military are infested with the scourge which silences reason and paralyzes common sense. Political correctness killed our soldiers on American soil, where they should have been safe from the enemy they have sworn to protect us from. Instead, America's restrictive politically correct speech codes allowed the enemy within our own borders to form a fifth column which at this very moment flourishes, placing our fighting men and women in grave peril.

At this very time, a few days after a United States military doctor gunned down the very people the Army had placed under his care, most of America's media is still too politically correct to investigate the Islamist connection with the massacre and is continuing to come up with defenses for Major Hasan's treachery. Americans must await news coming from the overseas "London Guardian" which is not fearful of investigating and exposing the evil actions of Major Hasan. We watch with disgust as our our government, the U.S. Army and America's supposedly mainstream media institutions furiously attempt to cover up any inklings of terrorist connection to the massacre.

Political Correctness is a far greater danger to America than Al Qaeda and Radical Islam. Al Qaeda can kill our people, but the goal of Political Correctness is to exterminate the heart and soul of our nation. Wake up America! Plunge a stake through the wickedness of Political Correctness once and for all. Speak freely the truth and demand the same from your government!

Demand that treacherous journalists like Evan Thomas of Newsweek and Chris Matthews of MSNBC who ridicule Americans and spread untruths be punished. It was especially galling that Chris Matthews told viewers it was not a crime for a United States Army officer to make contact with America's enemy, Al Gaeda.

Democracy Is Not Permanent

Freedom is not an endless list of rights: right to education, right to health care, to food, to housing. Those rights are dependency. They are rations of slavery.

A democracy is always a transitory form of government. It cannot exist in a permanent state. A democracy survives until a majority of its people discovers it can vote itself largess from the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the politician promising the most benefits from the public till. The democracy then collapses upon the financial embers of its immolation. Thereafter it requires a strong man to rescue it, a dictatorship, until it evolves into a monarchy.

Major Hasan - Hero to Terrorists

If Major Hasan is not a domestic terrorist, as the United States government and Barack Obama want us to believe, why does he attact such a following of terrorist wannabees?

The video above is of American Muslims praising Major Nidal Hasan for his cowardly act of gunning down innocent, unarmed soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas. These Muslims described him as "an Officer and a Gentleman."

Major Hasan is also a hero on Facebook. Someone named Ra'd Jundallah has created a Fan Page where Hasan already has 48 devotees: Major Nidal Malik Hasan - True American Hero!. Ra'd Jundallah, creator of the Major Nidal Malik Hasan Fan Page, himself has 485 Facebook friends.

Fort Hood Shooting - The Army Killer Was Linked to September 11th Terrorists

Major Hasan worshipped at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque, named as the most dangerous mosque in America by Paul Sperry in his book "Infiltration." The mosque was led by a radical Imam who was a "spiritual adviser" to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Septeber 11th, 2001. Hasan was attending this controversial mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, at the same time as the three terrorists. His mother’s funeral was held there in May 2001. The Imam at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London last August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organizations.

It has been three days since Major Malik Nadal Hasan, calmly executed twelve soldiers, one civilian, and gunned down 38 others as sitting ducks at Fort Hood, while chanting "Allahu Akbar." Since then, our politically correct government and media have been excuse-making for his actions since then. Professorial Barack Obama urged Americans not dwell upon the suspect’s religion and admonished us that "We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing." Oh, really?

Those who worked with Major Hasan at Walter Reed knew he was a Fundamentalist Muslim. He explained what he believed in a Dawah Session, where he made four assertions about the Koran:

1. "If you don't believe, you are condemned to hell" -- Koran 4:140; Koran 9:49; Koran 9:68; Koran 9:73
2. If you don't believe, "your head is cut off" -- Koran 8:12; Koran 47:4
3. If you don't believe, "you're set on fire" -- Koran 33:64; Koran 48:13; Koran 76:44.
4. If you don't believe, "burning oil is burned down your throat" -- Koran 18:29; Koran 44:43-46

The Holy Book of Islam

The holy book of Islam is al-qur'anu l-karîm. That is the Arabic word for what is commonly written as 'Koran', 'Quran', or 'Qur'an' in English. Apparently, for some unknown reason, only the latter is the correct English translation.

The University of Virginia refers on-line to al-qur'anu l-karîm, as the Koran and has turned it into an electronic version: The Koran at the Electronic Text Center, University of Virginia. The University of Michigan also has an electronic version of the Koran which is searchable at its website.

The University of Southern California has three translations of the Qur'an at its website, where they note: "any translation of the Qur'an immediately ceases to be the literal word of Allah, and hence cannot be equated with the Qur'an in its original Arabic form. In fact, each of the translations on this site is actually an interpretation which has been translated. The first-time reader is strongly advised to read the introduction to the translations we have made available. Corrections and suggestions are appreciated."

Catholic Encylopedia has a synopsis of the "Koran", from a Roman Catholic viewpoint of course, which is described as; "The sacred book of the Muslims, by whom it is regarded as the revelation of God. Supplemented by the so-called Hadith, or traditions, it is the foundation of Islam and the final authority in dogma and belief, in jurisprudence, worship, ethics, and in social, family, and individual conduct."

There is a site called Holy Quran Resource Group which has information on the Quran.

Scott Ott at Scrapple Face has an interesting post on the various names used for the Holy Book of Islam. Actually, I think he hits the nail on the head.
"Muslims Riot Over Spelling of 'Koran' in U.S. Media" by Scott Ott, (2005-05-17)
-- As many as 25 people died and dozens more were injured during riots in Afghanistan today which
erupted over what one Muslim cleric called "the U.S. media's desecration-by-mispelling" of the name of Islam's most holy book. Indeed, American editors have failed to reach consensus on how to render the holy book's name. Some spell it with a 'K' others with a 'Q' and -- perhaps most offensive to Muslim sensibilities -- some insert a meaningless apostrophe in the middle of the word.

TRICARE for Life

ObamaCare to Eliminate TRICARE for LIFE?

That is the question! I tried to telephone my Representative in Congress, Gerry Connolly of Virginia's 11th District, about the changes to my medical care in the new Health Bill. I guess he is too busy to listen to constituents. No one answered the phone. The new Health Care Bill is putting TRICARE for Life on the chopping block - Higher deductibles, Co-pays and even Premiums.

I am trying to find the Health Care Bill that the Democrats promised to post on the Internet so that I can read these changes they say are on pages 77, 172, 189, 218, and 434. Barack Obama promised that we get to keep our same plans, but now we find our plan costs $6000 per person more per year for the Medicare Supplement promised to military retirees.

So then I tried to telephone my Congressman again and got a constant busy signal! I did find the ObamaCare Plan posted at the his web site (Rep. Gerry Connolly, VA 11th District, "H.R. 3962" and I went to pages 77, 172, 189, 218, & 434. What I found is that I need to hire a lawyer to understand the gibberish. However, I found NO "TRICARE for Life" mentioned anywhere in the entire document. Why?

H. R. 3962 To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce the growth in health care spending, and for other purposes.

Tea Parties - Too American for America's Media

As one who was reared in the "former" United States of America, the Boston Tea Party and others like it were cultural icons, as "American as Apple Pie." Not anymore in today's America. This year when citizens organized themselves into modern-day Tea Parties in honor of their patriot ancestors of the Revolution, journalists of America's corrupt media immediately began deriding them with a very obscene and vulgar word describing a homosexual sex act.

Anderson Cooper was among the first of the so-called "journalists" who set the example for the rest of the rabid pack to follow. It was he who used the word meaning a homosexual act in April when Tea Parties were first being announced. Over and again Cooper gleefully injected the vulgar slang as often as possible into his derisive comments on the tea party protests. When his professionalism as a national journalist was questioned for such offensive language, Anderson Cooper eventually was forced to apologize.

But Anderson Cooper set the example that virtually all television networks and Democrat politicians today continue to use to ridicule American citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble and protest.  These journalists and Democrats have no shame at all in referring to grandmothers, stay-at-home moms, babes in arms, children in strollers, disabled veterans, and whoever else dares to protest the government, with a homosexual expletive so vile, that most citizens at Tea Parties have never heard before.

ObamaNation - A Single Party State

The ObamaNation is a single-party state. Single-party states usually arise from Leninist, fascist or nationalist ideologies. When the ruling party subscribes to a form of Marxism-Leninism, the one-party state system is usually called a communist state. However, communist states do not like to use the failed term of "Communist" to describe themselves, so they adopt more acceptable words. The Democrats of the ObamaNation call their nation a "democratic republic."

Barack Obama was elected to the Office of Presidency with the votes of university-educated youths who had been indoctrinated by Leftist professors with socialist and communist-leaning ideologies, and immigrants and ethnic minorities whose interests lie with the furtherance of the Socialist Welfare State. Obama proclaimed that his political and cultural views could be judged by the people he appointed to run his government. We now see that a large number of Obama's appointees are unabashed communists, Marxists, Maoists, anti-Americans and NAMBLA members, as are many of the official visitors to the Obama White House. ("Tell Me Who Your Friends Are")

Those who believe in single-party rule believe that it strengthens the sense of unity and commonality found in single-party states. Allowing additional political parties to have an input into the government would introduce division and stymie economic and political development. This one-party type of government was responsible for the great success of transforming the backward, agrarian country of Russia into the superpower nation of the Soviet Union (USSR).

The Democrats of the single-party ObamaNation believe that one-party rule enables them to legislate "good" long-term policies, such as nationalized health care that opposition parties would block if they were able to obtain power. They consider a single party system to be truly democratic, as their candidates are popularly elected with the help of government-sponsored entities, such as ACORN, government-run media and state-endorsed unions such as SEIU.

The One-Party ObamaNation has its own national ensign which is usually displayed with the face of Barack Obama superimposed over the flag of the former United States of America. The ObamaNation flag by SICH, was originally uploaded by tofz4u.

Get Government Out of the Bedroom

Gay people should just go marry themselves! Instead, they stand about hurling vulgar and pornographic epithets at states like Maine and California, while attempting to ridicule voters in a democracy because they refuse to vote as Gays and Lesbians demand.

Get Government out of the marriage business. Leave marriage to those who are really interested in it, the Gays and the Church. Leave partnerships to the lawyers. And leave the solving of questions as to who is responsible for the support of children to science and DNA.
