•  During the 1990s, the U.S. imposed an embargo on Iraq to prevent that nation from receiving all of the food and medicines it needed. As a result of that embargo, 500,000 Iraqi children are believed to have died.

During much of that embargo, Medeline Albright was the 64th U.S. Secretary of State.  On May 12th, A.D. 1996, Secretary of State Albright appeared on 60 Minutes and was asked if the “price” of the embargo-related deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children was “worth it”.  Albright replied, “I think that this is a very hard choice, but the price . . . we think the price is worth it.”  (See, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbIX1CP9qr4)

Can anyone in their right mind justify the needless deaths of one-half million children?  Can anyone who causes or even justifies the deaths of one-half million children expect to be forgiven and welcomed to salvation?  Shouldn’t Americans and the world have been shocked and appalled by Secretary of State Albright’s admissions?  Could America cause the deaths of 500,000 children and still claim to be the “good guys”?

Poll: 29% of Registered Voters Believe Armed Revolution Might Be Necessary in Next Few Years


The Statue of Liberty, also known as Lady Libe...

The Statue of Liberty is also known as Lady Liberty but her official name is Liberty Enlightening the World. This statue might soon come to regain its former meaning.  (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

For those of you who think you’re virtually alone in your anti-government sentiments . . . for those of you who think that those of us who want a restoration of liberty are only a tiny minority . . . there’s a recent poll indicating that 29% of the American people believe that a shooting revolution may be required to protect our liberties from our own government.

29% translates into about 90 million Americans who already believe that government has gone too far–and plans to go further–down the road into a police state and overt tyranny.

Thus, 29% of Americans are aware of, or at least sympathetic to, the idea expressed in the Declaration of Independence that “. . . when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

29%.

We are not alone.  The ideas, attitudes and concerns shared on this blog and hundreds more like it are not only proliferating but are far more common than most people imagine.  We are not the “lunatic fringe”.  We are mainstream and growing stronger.

We are winning.

Good Americans Distrust Government—And they are the Majority


English: * Title = Gilbert Stuart's Portrait o...

“Government, like fire, is a dangerous servant or a fearful master.” George Washington (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I postulate that being a good American means living in harmony with the spirit of The Constitution of the United States.  If that’s true, should we ever trust government?

Absolutely not.

The reason we have three, separate and independent branches of government (Legislative, Executive and Judicial) is to keep those governmental branches fighting among themselves and thereby prevent the emergence of a single, dictatorial government that worked for its own interests rather than those of the people.  The mandate for three branches of government (separation of powers) is evidence that the Founders didn’t trust the federal government.

The reason we have “checks and balances” in the Constitution is to protect the people from the federal government.  The Founders didn’t trust the feds.

The reason we have the 1st Amendment right to free speech is to allow us to expose government corruption.

According to the “Preamble to the Bill of Rights,” the reason we have the entire Bill of Rights (including the 2nd Amendment) is to prevent “misconstruction or abuse” of the powers granted under the Constitution to the officers, officials and employees of the federal government.

Insofar as the Constitution was intended to allow for only a “limited” government, that Constitution was intended to protect against government’s inevitable and insatiable appetite for more power, more taxes and less freedom.  The Founders didn’t trust the federal government.

Meet Beppe Grillo!


Beppe Grillo

Beppe Grillo

Beppe Grillo (64) lacks the good looks of a movie’s leading man.  In fact, the man sometimes looks almost grotesque.  He often dresses like a bum.

Grillo’s been an Italian comedian for most of his life, but also an actor and blogger. He’s been involved in politics since A.D. 2009 when he founded Italy’s “Movimento 5 Stelle” (the Five Star Movement, or M5S).

During its first three and a half years, Grillo’s Five Star Movement was ignored by the press and shunned by Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi’s TV stations.  But M5S relied on its own efforts and the internet to fuel its meteoric growth, and refused to accept government money available to help finance its campaign. During the recent campaign, it relied only on a thin, 15-page platform.
