Is It Time to Get Rid of the Constitution?

leave a comment »


By Spartacus Thrace

the-constitutionAs 2013 dawns across America, the Progressive Movement appears to be at the zenith of their power within the federal government and throughout major sectors of American society and culture.  Buttressed by decades-long control or domination of the academy, the theater, the press, labor, and the Democratic Party, the Progressives have fundamentally changed the state of the nation by creating a secular utopian statist path as an alternative to the religious individualistic minimalist government path set down by the Founders two centuries ago and expressed in the obligations of the government to the governed they enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

The Declaration has long been treated by many in power as an irrelevant historical relic.  The radical notion that the Constitution is a “living document” has gained wide adherence across several parts of the societal spectrum, even among those who hold themselves out as experts on matters of constitutional law.  America is now governed by a semi-permanent ruling class, engaged in rampant self-entitlement, seeing itself as separate and apart from — and superior to — the governed.  The notions of the American melting pot of disparate peoples and American exceptionalism have been lost to Balkanization of the population along the classic imaginary socialist fault lines of race, ethnicity, gender, and class.  The fundamental concept of minimalism — where the power of government is a revocable grant from the governed and the government has only that power and authority necessary to perform the essential duties entrusted to it by the governed — has long been smothered by massive growth in the size, power, and reach of the federal government and the concomitant decrease in individual liberty.

The Obama Campaign Follows a Porn Feed on Twitter

with one comment


By Spartacus Thrace

We rightfully expect political candidates and the people around them to be morally upright and of excellent character as a condition precedent to the ability to properly conduct themselves in the affairs of government if and when elected.  The fact that a candidate for public office has pornography on his or her computer or subscribes to a pornography feed should be big news in any election, as it says a lot about the morals and character of the candidate.  Presidential candidates and their committees are no exception.  That is why it is significant and relevant to the election of our next President that the Barack Obama campaign subscribes to the pornography feed, https://twitter.com/ILikeTitsDaily, which features a daily posting of (often gaudy) photographs of the exposed breasts of women. Sometimes the breasts are not completely exposed, often the breasts are framed without showing even the faces of the women, and the sexual organs are exposed in some of the photographs.

November 3, 2010, marked the first day of the 2012 Presidential Campaign: Barack Obama and the Left are well advanced in their preparations for what may be the American political showdown of the century.  Assuming that Barack Obama will be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee in 2012, conservatives have a lot to do to get ready.

As the results of the 2010 midterms show, a lot has changed since 2008.  Whereas Obama and the Democrats reigned supreme in 2008, they have now lost control of the House of Representatives to a resurgent Republican Party and are threatened with a full-scale rout in 2012.  While it might be easy for the Republican Establishment to become complacent about the prospects, conservatives should prepare for the showdown by fully understanding why the Republicans were beaten in 2008, and how that defeat is relevant to preparations for 2012.

Barack Obama won and John McCain lost primarily due to the following: Read the rest of this entry »

Obama Rips Off the Tea Party Brand With “Orlando Tea Party”

leave a comment »


By Le Corbeaunoir

The ballot qualified “TEA Party” is not the only non-Tea Party Movement group coveting the term “tea party” and attempting to deny or degrade its use by the Tea Party Movement:  It appears that Barack Obama and his presidential campaign organization, Organizing for America (OFA), are attempting to co-opt the Tea Party “brand” with the publication of a website called “Orlando Tea Party.” Read the rest of this entry »

Drone’s Pills: Take Liberally

COMMENTARY

By Spartacus Thrace

Saul Alinsky and many of the other Big Lefties in America long realized the potential of ridicule to isolate and weaken political enemies. It is indeed ironic that ridicule is now proving to be a powerful political weapon against Barack Obama and the statists.

If you have ever wondered what kind of drug the drones who support Obama are on, this video by Enlightened Self Interest has a very amusing answer.

COMMENTARY

By Spartacus Thrace

Barack Obama’s personal political action and propaganda organization, Organizing for America (OFA), serves as a quasi-government agency for the promotion of the Obama agenda under cover of the legal fiction that it is “a project of the Democratic National Committee.”  OFA, which operated openly as the Obama presidential campaign organization until Election Day 2008, is still campaigning for Obama and is presently focused on getting Obamacare through the Congress in spite of the will of the people.  Such is the way of the statists.

The greater part of OFA’s work is “perception management,” the creation of the perception that Obama and his programs enjoy the enthusiastic support of the American people.  While the Lefties who dominate the Old Media have always been on board with the program and are team players in the effort to prop up Obama, OFA and its fellow travellers in the media have done such a poor job among the general public and against the New Media over the past year that the Obama Administration is increasingly being described as a failed presidency.
