Stop Using "Class Warfare".

Referring to "Class" anything is a Marxist term, and Republicans shouldn't repeat it.

What Obama is doing is pitting American against American, and failing to unite the country to rebuild the economy. We need to lower and broaden the tax system, whether its the fair tax, or flat tax, or some combination inbetween.

Republicans need to drop the "class warfare" phrase-ology like a plague. We do not, and I repeat we DO NOT have a class system in the United States. Wise up, candidates and GOP. Stop using Marxist rhetoric, or it will blow up in your face. Your income level does NOT put you into a CLASS

Rick Perry...Is He a Conservative.?

I think Rick Perry has conservative views on capital punishment, taxes, and abortion. However, I have grave concerns about his Democrat past. He certainly can never claim to be a former Reagan Democrat, as he stood against President Reagan twice. After the disaster that was the Jimmy Carter first term, Perry stood with Carter for a second bite at the apple.

After President Reagan's first term, Perry stood against him again as part of the "Walter Mondale for President" campaign in Texas. As though that wasn't enough, he ran against Reagan's Vice President Herbert (George) Bush as Albert Gore's campaign manager.

I still don't appreciate or understand why, even in 2008, that Perry endorsed one of the most socially liberal candidates in the race, Rudy Giuliani. In his governance of Texas, he stubbornly stood against parental rights by writing an edict (executive order) to inject Gardisil (a anti-cancer vaccine) into twelve year old school girls. Gardisil only "worked" if the girls were sexually active. It took the State Legislature to write and pass a bill to turn off Perry's executive order. Despite parental outrage, Perry refused to recind his order.

The Texas corridor, the eminent domain confiscation of rancher land to hand over to a foreign company to build a toll road is another debacle Perry led. Once again, the Legislature turned him back. So much for private property rights.

Rick Perry also signed the Texas version of the Dream Act providing in-State tuition to illegal alien children (who meet specific requirements), and he continues to NOT support a fence on the border. The Texas Dream act is another one of those pieces of Legislation that acts as a magnet for illegal border crossers, and unfenced borders are easily crossed.

The history of Rick Perry certainly shows that he is stubborn. This is a trait that reminds me of our former President Bush, in terms of his lack of willingness to change the strategy in Iraq (i.e. stay the course). Perry is weak on border issues, is conflicted on eminent domain (for profit), conflicted on the issue of parental rights, and hasn't yet explained how his conservative epiphany came about after fighting the election and re-election of Ronald Reagan.

As Sarah Palin said, we need not worry so much about replacing Barack Obama, but "who and what we are replacing him with".

The Gold Standard

I'm not an expert on currency. I do know that when we were on the gold standard, an American citizen couldn't legally own gold bullion. In 1933 Franklin D. Roosevelt made it illegal for any person in the United States to own hoards of gold. The ban was not lifted until legislation was signed in 1974 by President Gerald Ford. There likely isn't enough gold to run our economy, so what would our country do if there wasn't a sufficient supply of gold backed currency to run multi billion dollar companies and pay salaries of millions of employees?

I've always wondered what makes gold valuable in the first place. You can't eat it, plant it, or shoot it (well, you could mold it into bullets). In a financial collapse, I would rather own agricultural land, non-modified seed, a plow, a good mule, firearms, and plenty of ammo. So, whats so great about gold? Pieces of cardboard (called baseball cards) are sometimes more valuable. Maybe we should turn to baseball cards to back our currency?

I also find it amazing that sellers of gold tell us that gold may double in value, yet are willing to sell me their valuable gold for my worthless paper currency. I just don't get doesn't compute. If the brokers thought what they were advertising were true, why wouldn't they hang on to their gold and double their fortunes? I don't know folks, you tell me.

Palin's Version of Paul Revere was RIGHT, Exactly Right

Palin's description of the events of Paul Revere's midnight ride was perfectly correct. Let the historical record speak for itself:

From: Paul Revere's Ride" by David Hackett Fischer (Oxford University Press 1994):

"A townsman remembered that 'repeated gunshots, the beating of drums and the ringing of bells filled the air.'.... Along the North Shore of Massachusetts, church bells began to toll and the heavy beat of drums could be heard for many miles in the night air." "

Paul Revere’s own account of his warning to the British that night:

I observed a Wood at a Small distance, & made for that. When I got there, out Started Six officers, on Horse back,and orderd me to dismount;-one of them, who appeared to have the command, examined me, where I came from,& what my Name Was? I told him. it was Revere, he asked if it was Paul? I told him yes He asked me if I was an express? I answered in the afirmative. He demanded what time I left Boston? I told him; and aded, that their troops had catched aground in passing the River, and that There would be five hundred Americans there in a short time, for I had alarmed the Country all the way up. He imediately rode towards those who stoppd us, when all five of them came down upon a full gallop; one of them, whom I afterwards found to be Major Mitchel, of the 5th Regiment, Clapped his pistol to my head, called me by name, & told me he was going to ask me some questions, & if I did not give him true answers, he would blow my brains out. He then asked me similar questions to those above. He then orderd me to mount my Horse, after searching me for arms.

PM of UK, Cameron Will Say:

"When a white person holds objectionable views - racism, for example - we rightly condemn them. But when equally un"acceptable views or practices have come from someone who isn't white, we've been too cautious, frankly even fearful, to stand up to them."

He calls it, "muscular liberalism". I call it coming to one's senses. Radical Islam is changing the UK and Europe, and they better wake up. They must stand against those values that don't measure up to their National identity, or lose it forever. Same goes for here in the USA.

It will be an interesting speech, certaining more interesting than "The King's Speech".
