I got the following video from LiveLeak via Ms.Underestimated. It is amazing to me that what Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson says is what conservative talk show hosts were saying all last year. This is the reason that they were making a big deal out of what Rev. Wright was saying in the pulpit.

As was said last year, you can't believe that the king liberal could sit in the pews of Rev. Wright's church and not believe the filth that he was preaching. This is the man that people voted to be our leader. I know that the regular media didn't give a whole lot of credit to the Rev. Wright's words. Shoot, even Obama himself said that he had never heard him say stuff like that. Everyone bought it. He said that he could no more disown Rev. Wright than he could disown his own grandmother. Then, two weeks later, when it became politically expedient, he did just what he said he couldn't do.

Oh yeah, and by the way, I have to say that it is about time that someone stood up to what the federal government is trying to do. It is great to see that Arizona is taking a proactive approach to this health care boondoggle.

This man got elected for three reasons. One, he was able to tell people what they wanted to hear. His true colors started to come out when Joe the Plumber asked him about taxes. Remember, He said that he wanted to share the wealth. Not his, mind you. But, everyone else's. Well, look at what he is doing now. The "stimulus" bill raised the limits for unemployment. He has taken a vested interest, in the name of the government, in over 500 companies. He is pushing for the power to tell every financial institution what they can and cannot pay their employees. He controls two of the "Big Three" Auto makers.

The second thing he did to get elected was to turn down public funds for his campaign. This was after he promised to take the funds. He spent so much money that he even had his own channel to blast his infomercial 24 hours a day. The man wasn't even able to keep a promise then. Nobody ever listened to what he said. He is doing exactly what he has said he was going to do. He would put on a very eloquent persona while in the public eye and then tell exactly what he thought behind closed doors. He even got careless about that once in a while. Remember when he said that he was going to pass the cap-and-trade bill even though it would necessarily cause everyone's utility bills to skyrocket. He even said that it would put some companies out of business. He doesn't care. He wants POWER.

The third reason that he got elected was the fact that the majority of the media was so enamoured with him that they refused to let the public know the whole truth. They only would report the good things. They did not, and do not, have faith in the general public to make the right choice when they vote. They are still not covering the outright illegal activities of ACORN. An organization the the king liberal has direct ties to. The "stimulus" has even given MILLIONS of dollars to ACORN and actually named them as people to work the census. These are not the people that should be in charge of drawing legislative district lines. They have been under investigation in several states for voter fraud.

It is time we take this country back. Back from the Statist Democrats that want the federal government to have all the power. Back from the people that think that hard work needs to be punished. Back from people who think that everyone has a right to be prosperous, no matter what they do. And, especially, back from the people who think that the Constitution is something that is constricting. That think that it "doesn't tell what the government must do." The Constitution was designed to limit government. To celebrate the individual and his/her abilities to do what they needed to do to pursue their dreams. We are not a bunch of people who can be led around mindlessly. We are a group of individuals that must be allowed to decide what is best for ourselves.

So I only saw about 10 minutes of the healthcare plan last night. That's 10 minutes of my life I'll never get back! I tell you, my skin crawls just hearing BO speak. Ugh.

And I quote: "Rep. Tom Price, R-Georgia, said Wednesday that a public option "would be a death knell [for private insurance], because it changes the dynamic" of the marketplace.

"It makes the referee and the player the same person. And when the referee and the player are the same person, if you're on the other team, you lose," Price said.

"What does a government-run program look like in the United States? It looks like Medicare Part B, which is the physician component of Medicare.

"It's a voluntary program [but] has a 97 percent market share. It crowds everything else out of the system."

AND after promising $$$ to the uninsured to subsidize the purchase of insurance, guess what they're cutting to make the numbers work: the money promised to the uninsured! But everyone thinks his plan is awesome!

AND they can't seem to figure out a way to pay for this without raising taxes: "On Wednesday, two key senators said a controversial new tax on employer-provided medical benefits is gaining traction among Senate health care negotiators to help pay for health care reform.

"Bipartisan Senate negotiators are "starting to coalesce" around the idea, according to Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Montana.

"The health care benefits tax is especially politically charged because Obama opposed the idea when he ran for president. White House officials from the president down have sent mixed messages in public in recent weeks about whether he'd accept such a tax.

"Baucus says Obama has told him he is "flexible" on the proposal.

"Leaving a closed-door negotiating session on health reform, Conrad said, "It's hard for me to see how you have a package that is paid for that doesn't include" the new tax.

"Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said the tax would be based on the value of a federal employee's health benefits package, plus 10 percent, meaning a family of four would pay income tax on health benefits valued at more than $17,000. Currently, employer-provided health insurance is tax-free, regardless of its value.

"Baucus and Conrad also said they are considering other tax increases not related to health care, including Obama's proposal to reduce tax deductions for wealthy people. Many lawmakers panned the idea when Obama first floated it.

"That's on the table and variations on the theme are on the table," Conrad said, while Baucus said: "There's no free lunch."

I don't know about you, but I've NEVER gotten a free lunch.

I am so glad to see that Arizona is trying to stand on there own and NOT fall for the crap that our present leader and his staff are trying to jam down our throats. Hats off to Arizona.

I don't know if you have heard but this great state of Texas that I live in is talking about seceding from the Union. I guess when Texas was won or purchased by the Union years ago the people of Texas had a stipulation in the agreement that stated they (we) could secede any time we wanted if we thought the US Government was getting to powerful. It's is kinda of funny to think that I live in a state that is filled with illegal imigrants, people whom the king liberal want to help, but yet the majority of the state does not support the present leader of the Union.

I can't believe that we as a nation keep supporting this man and his staff. You would think by now that the people of this great nation would wake up and realize that if Arizona wants to do things independantly and Texas wants to become there own nation then something is deffintely wrong.

I just hope that we only have to put up with this until the next election for the Congress. I really hope it stops before that but I am affraid that we will have to wait until then and by that time who knows how much damage the king liberal and his staff will have already done.
