Americans are already seceding
from one another

Creators Syndicate, by Patrick J. Buchanan

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 11/30/2012 8:54:11 AM

“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another …” So begins the Declaration of Independence of the 13 colonies from the king and country to which they had given allegiance since the settlers first came to Jamestown and Plymouth Rock. The declaration was signed by 56 angry old white guys who had had enough of what the Cousins were doing to them. In seceding from the mother country, these patriots put their lives, fortunes and honor on the line

Do you love a country that celebrates perversity, rewards sloth, excuses the crimes of the preferred, hates our past and boos the Creator? Me neither. Pat explains how we have already left half our nation.

Not so sure about seceding but separated to be sure. In their minds progs have thrown us out of their country.

We are a "house deivided", to be sure. Before we try secession from the Union, however, there are several steps to try first. One such step is secession from the GOP and break-up of the two-party system, which the Framers warned against in the first place.

I find that I can no longer even look at liberals.
Family, in laws, co-workers, neighbors, etc....
They literally stuck a knife in the heart of America and I have such dark, violent desires for them that I shake when forced to interact.

I think it is the public high-fiving that makes me despise liberals right now.

I have a friend who is Catholic and pro-life, who often posts anti-abortion messages on her Facebook page. But she did the happy dance when Obama won, with messages like, "Congratulations, Mr. President," and posting the bogus photo (not from election night, because it was light when the photo was taken) showing the Obamas embracing, with a message, "an example for families everywhere." This is a friend of more than ten years, and I have no respect for her opinion or values any longer. I really don´t even want to run into her. I guess I have seceded from her. Maybe I´ll get over it, maybe not.

I don´t remember conservatives and republicans high-fiving and rubbing it in when Bush won in 2000 and 2004. We are too afraid of offending people, I guess. Or perhaps we just have better manners.

We´re out of California as soon as I can arrange it, and we live in a red area.

I remember as a kid reading about Civil War I (as I now refer to it) and being unable to comprehend how Americans could take up arms against one another.

I can now. Real easy. Once they start it.

Our country is designed for 2 parties & a 3rd party will completely take us down. I am in agreement with most of the Ldotter posters & feel very angry about the election but obviously we are to suffer more discipline before some Americans will wake up. I may never live to see the final outcome & it is painful to see our beloved Republic going the way of Europe. Maybe the Tea Party will take one last stand in 2014 to see if we will survive - I will gladly fight again & dare any 3rd party to ruin the result.

If conservatives were to form a third party, you can bet the biggest contributor to this party would be the Democrat Party itself. It would be the most cost effective way to guarantee wins for the dimocrats forever more.

Why in the world do we have states if everything is going to be run out of Washington DC? This is a Republic of 50 sovereign states, the tenth amendment allows the federal government only a few enumerated powers, any power not listed in the constitution is reserved to the states or the people. The states need to reassert their sovereignty. Give the people 50 choices (or 51 if they want to go somewhere else). This all knowing, all encompassing, all controlling socialist central government has to go. Let that happen and there will be no more talk of secession.

I have seceded. I have left the USA, working towards getting all my money out of the country without having to pay huge tax penalties, and am working towards obtaining citizenship elsewhere. Once I get that citizenship, I will seriously consider renouncing my US citizenship. NEVER in a million years would I have thought I would end up doing this, yet here I am.....

I may be bumping into you one day #16. Unlike you I need the retain citizenship in order to keep receiving the savings plan I paid into all those years, social security. We need an L-dot pin, simple and tasteful that can be worn by men and women. It doesn´t need to scream out anyone´s name, just so long as we can recognise the wearer for what they are and what they stand for.

I´m not sure things can turn around. Every day there are more takers than givers, and the direction Obama has us headed in will mean even more takers. Unfortunately from now on I believe many of the takers were originally givers. And I´m not talking about social security recipients.

The Jeb Bush boomlet
Chicago Tribune, by Jules Witcover    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 4/2/2014 2:59:02 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON -- Inevitably, considering the absence of a clear Republican frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, the name of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of the family dynasty has been rushed to the fore. On his record in office and his soft-spoken personal appeal, he would seem a natural to go to the head of a list of only moderately impressive wannabes. But the immediate question is: Do American voters, after a double dose of Bushes, want another one? The fact is that memories of the two George Bush presidencies now set few GOP hearts aflutter.The first George, elected to

Is the Republican Party’s Middle East policy up for bid? For four days ending Sunday, a quartet of presidential hopefuls trooped to Las Vegas to attend the annual gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition. Impresario: Sheldon Adelson, the Vegas-Macau casino mogul whose fortune is estimated at $39 billion — 8th richest man on the planet — and who dumped $92 million into the election of 2012. Adelson kept Newt Gingrich alive with a $15 million infusion of ad money, gutting Romney, and then sank $30 million into Mitt’s campaign. This time Sheldon wants to buy himself a winner.

In the early 2016 Republican presidential sweepstakes, could former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush be the beneficiary of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s recent stumbles? That´s the question a number of analysts are starting to ask as Christie, formerly a clear favorite of the GOP establishment, starts to lose his luster, tarnished by months of critical headlines about the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal in New Jersey.

Vladimir Putin seems to have lost touch with reality, Angela Merkel reportedly told Barack Obama after speaking with the Russian president. He is “in another world.” “I agree with what Angela Merkel said … that he is in another world,” said Madeleine Albright, “It doesn’t make any sense.” John Kerry made his contribution to the bonkers theory by implying that Putin was channeling Napoleon: “You don’t just, in the 21st century, behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on a completely trumped-up pretext.” Now that Putin has taken Crimea without firing a shot, and 95 percent of a Crimean electorate voted

Marco Rubio is smack in the middle of the current polls for the 2016 presidential primary. But he may be the early frontrunner when it comes to offering a realistic conservative agenda for reforms that address the economic challenges of modern America. And whether or not he pulls the trigger on a White House run, the U.S. senator from Florida is already helping to refashion the GOP once again into the Party of Ideas. In a series of smart domestic-policy speeches this year, Rubio has generally avoided the easy, reflexive response as to what’s gone terribly wrong with the American

What has been happening in Ukraine is not a wake-up call precisely but a tugging at the attention, a demand to focus. There´s a sense that in some new way we are watching the 21st century take its shape and express its central realities. Exactly 100 years ago, in August 1914, the facts that would shape the 20th century gathered and emerged in the Great War. History doesn´t repeat itself; you can´t, as they say, step into the same stream twice. But it does have an unseen circularity. Sept. 11 started the century and brought forward the face of terrorism.

MADISON, Wis. – Investigators in Wisconsin say a home invasion in which a man was severely beaten and his pregnant wife was repeatedly sexually assaulted stemmed from a mistake. Madison police say the attack was spurred by a neighbor´s girlfriend, who hoped to have him robbed. But the suspects instead stumbled into the wrong home in an affluent Madison neighborhood. A criminal complaint filed Tuesday says the suspects beat the man who lived there with a handgun and assaulted his wife, who was six months pregnant. Both were hospitalized.

With Vladimir Putin’s dispatch of Russian troops into Crimea, our war hawks are breathing fire. Russophobia is rampant and the op-ed pages are ablaze here. Barack Obama should tune them out, and reflect on how Cold War presidents dealt with far graver clashes with Moscow.

When Khrushchev built the Berlin Wall, JFK went to Berlin and gave a speech.When Warsaw Pact troops crushed the Prague Spring in 1968, LBJ did nothing. When, Moscow ordered Gen.

If Jeb Bush runs for the Republican presidential nomination, he may face pushback from the tea party — and not just for the reasons you might expect. With Chris Christie faltering, the former Florida governor is reportedly calling major donors to discuss a possible presidential run. But tea party leaders, both nationally and in Florida, tell The Daily Caller that Bush would have trouble getting their support because of his strong backing of Common Core. The Common Core State Standards Initiative defines itself as “a state-led effort that established a single set of clear educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in

California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has recalled embattled former IRS exempt organizations division head Lois Lerner to testify on Capitol Hill Wednesday. Lerner’s apology for improperly scrutinizing and harassing conservative groups applying for non-profit status kicked off the IRS targeting scandal ten months ago, and Lerner has been stonewalling ever since (famously trying to invoke the Fifth Amendment the last time she testified but failing because she made a statement attesting to her innocence first). Her lawyer said she intends to “continue to assert her Fifth Amendment rights.” Since she already waived them, Issa

The constant mischief of the progressive left is hurting the nation´s morale. There are few areas of national life left in which they are not busy, and few in which they´re not making it worse. There are always more regulations, fees and fiats, always more cultural pressure and insistence. The president brags he has a pen and a phone. He uses the former to sign executive orders. It is not clear why he mentioned the latter since he rarely attempts to bring legislators over to his side. Who exactly is he calling? The most hopeful thing he´s done is signal this

In a move sure to reignite the IRS scandal that rocked the agency and the Obama administration last Spring, House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa is recalling disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner to a March 5 hearing, demanding that she resume her testimony before his panel. In late May, Lerner delivered an opening statement to Issa’s committee before invoking her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. The panel later voted that, in making that statement, in which Lerner declared she had done nothing wrong, the former head of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations division had waived her Fifth Amendment rights.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

"As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake
