When Your Children Ask, “What Happened?” Tell Them That Americans Said “It Didn’t Matter”

(Could someone please lock the door and throw away the key?)

From May 25 to September 17, 1787, 55 men attended the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Their plan was to create a government that would be effective in carrying out it’s essential tasks, such as foreign policy and national defense. A government that would not resemble the European governments, where the exercise of governmental power was arbitrary and without limits. These men spent 116 days in a room with the doors locked and all the windows closed, at a time when air conditioning did not exist. They wanted to create a Constitution that would constrain the power of the government over the people while still guaranteeing a representative processes of government.

After the constitution was finalized, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin;
“Well Doctor, what have we got, a Republic or a Monarchy?”
To which Mr. Franklin replied,
A republic, madam – if you can keep it.
Today we are on the verge of replacing the rights given to us by those men, with a government that will be in control of all aspects of our everyday life. In 2010 Americans stood up and told the government we want our freedom back. In 2012, the Americans stood firm in their demand by keeping a divided government that was supposed to limit it’s influence over our lives.

Obama was reelected, but not because Americans approved of his job, he was reelected because 4 million conservatives stayed home. Now we must live with him until he is termed out, but it doesn’t mean we have to like him, or agree with him. The vast majority of those who did vote for him, were unaware of many things he has done.

Obama Continues to Accuse Others For What He Is Responsible For

To begin with, the sequester is all about the amount of spending growth over last years budget. We are ultimately talking about $85 billion dollars.  Now consider the fact that Obama has been spending like a drunken sailor on shore leave at the tune of $5.8 trillion in his first term. Think about that for a moment……………… Finished contemplating that?  Ok.
Before you go any further, I strongly advise you to watch this short video (4 min) with Comedian Adam Carolla. Adam offers some great advice on how we as humans can start taking responsibility for things in our lives. It is a video I wish all politicians, especially Obama, would watch. After all, they all claim they only want to make the world a better place to live in. Well Adam gives some good advice on how we all can make sure that the life we live, will be one that leaves the world a better place after we are gone than it was before we arrived.
So we have this drunken sailor running around like Chicken Little, attempting to scare the country into believing the world is going to end over an $85 billion reduction in the increase of spending over last year.  Yet now we learn from CNN that he is giving the Syrian rebels $60 million.  You think maybe he should begin reducing his spending by saying no the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists, who controls the rebels which are fighting Assad in Syria?  By the way, these are the very same terrorists who are also indiscriminately murdering Christians.
