Standing against big government and for the people!
The story goes that the Roman empire was beginning to weaken and crumble from within first, then from without. Moral decay and utter depravity were common-place. The Romans were losing their will. They were losing their will to resist corrupt pleasures, corrupt politicians and politics, corrupt education, family and religion. They were losing their will to say “NO!” to taxation and government encroachments as long as the Colosseums were running, the Gladiators fighting, Lions eating Christians and the orgies going on…the Romans didn’t care about the taxation or government intrusions…at the first.
Then when a person of conscience and conviction did speak up they were mocked, attacked and even killed. As dissatisfaction and protest grew the problems from without also grew. Other nations, other tribes, saw Rome weakening. They saw it rotting from within. Some had their “agents”/spies embedded deep into Roman culture, education, politics and everyday life. Now they began to attack from outside. Wave after wave of foreign tribes and nations warred against Rome. Rome held…at the first.
But Caesar refused to change. Refused to do what was right, refused to do what had made Rome the mighty Empire it once was. Instead Caesar blamed “The People”, particularly the Conservatives…and especially those “eViL Christians”…
We’re not an empire (no matter what certain extremist Liberals and fringe Libertarians say. Rome conquered- We Liberate...and ONLY when we or an ally are attacked.)
But the similarities are there.
Rome began as a REPUBLIC. It once had a strong emphasis and respect on the family, it had checks and balances and it respected rights and freedoms. Even the lands they Rome had conquered had local, native figure-heads as leaders. Rome had a strong respect for the Rule of Law at it’s outset… these and other attributes made Rome strong, respected, orderly, productive, prosperous and powerful. BUT as Rome departed from what made Rome Good it also began to depart from what made Rome great.
America began as a Christian nation. The people that found, settled, explored and built America were Puritans, Pilgrims, Huegonots, Annabaptists, Quakers, Shakers, Dutch Reform, Presbyterians…Christian people looking for a place to raise their families and worship as they saw fit according to their understanding of God and His Word.
As the American Revolution looked inevitable tensions were high, focus was divided, loyalties split, the distractions caused a waning in spiritual fervor and devotion. Then, in answer to prayer, The Lord God sent the Great Awakening. This morally and spiritually prepared the American colonists for the war that was coming. As one reads the journals, diaries, sermons, speeches and letters from America’s Founders the recurrent theme of “Our Dependency on the Hand of Divine Providence and His Mercies” is seen.
America was born.
And as we remained true to the Core Foundational Principles of Liberty we prospered.
Those Core Foundational Principles of Liberty- Life, Liberty, The Pursuit of Happiness, Private Property, The Rule of Law (see more at: http://revlarry.patriotactionnetwork.com/2011/09/10/the-principles-... )- are WHAT made America GOOD. And because America was Good America was Great.
As America would begin to stray from her Core Principles of Liberty there were people who would pray and call on The Lord God, and conversely God would raise up people to lead America back to her Core Foundational Principles of Liberty (Charles Finney, Charles Spurgeon, Dwight L. Moody, Billy Sunday, Billy Graham, James Kennedy, Jerry Falwell, David Wilkerson…)
Now America has a President sworn to fundamentally transform America. Obama and the DNC have NO loyalty and NO respect for The U.S. Constitution. Their every word and deed belies the fact that they hate America, they hate what made America Good…and they really hate that America was great because of that.
Obama not only says we’re no longer a Christian nation- he says we never were one and lauds the “many blessing and advancements made in America because of it’s strong respect and affiliation with Islam!! Besides Britain in the American Revolution & The War of 1812 it was Muslem Pirates and Jihadists America fought Wars against in our early days, the War against the Barbary/Muslem Pirates, you know, where the Marines get the line “from the shores of Tripoli” from?!!
Obama not only says we need to “spread the wealth”- he is working 24/7/365 to rob from producer, the worker and the earner, the rightful owner, and “give” it to welfare cheats, bums and his Union cronies…who didn’t lift a pinkie to deserve it!!
Obama not only went on a Global “I-Apologise-For-America/Blame-America” tour- he has steadfastly work to make America a 4th World, indebted to our ENEMIES, bankrupt and impoverished nation…that just so happens to be “fundamentally transformed” into a Marxist-Muslem Dictatorship!
Well, Nero fiddled while Rome burned- Obama and the Dems went all Robert Lewis Carroll while America burns-
White House threw secret ‘Alice in Wonderland’ bash during recession
By MICHAEL GARTLAND and CYNTHIA R. FAGEN

It was the tea party the Obamas just couldn’t resist. A White House “Alice in Wonderland” costume ball — put on by Johnny Depp and Hollywood director Tim Burton — proved to be a Mad-as-a-Hatter idea that was never made public for fear of a political backlash during hard economic times, according to a new tell-all.
“The Obamas,” by New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor, tells of the first Halloween party the first couple feted at the White House in 2009. It was so over the top that “Star Wars” creator George Lucas sent the original Chewbacca to mingle with invited guests.
The book reveals how any official announcement of the glittering affair — coming at a time when Tea Party activists and voters furious over the lagging economy, 10-percentunemployment rate, bank bailouts and Obama’s health-care plan were staging protests — quickly vanished down the rabbit hole.
“White House officials were so nervous about how a splashy, Hollywood-esque party would look to jobless Americans — or their representatives in Congress, who would soon vote on health care — that the event was not discussed publicly and Burton’s and Depp’s contributions went unacknowledged,” the book says.
The REAL numbers were at that time 10-13% UNemployment, now it’s 22-25%. Some estimate as high as 36% unemployment.
Folks, these “Caesars” are golfing 3-5 times a week, going on vacation every other week, going shopping and having “Nero-type” parties on your and my tax dollars all while gutting our Military, threatening a new war (Iran), taking over GM, Chrysler, the banks, The lending and housing markets and "Communising" Health-Care!!
These Marxists are wreaking havoc on America’s Constitution, Liberties, Rule of Law, Free-Markets and America’s Sovereignty and Security!!
Man! This makes my blood boil!!!
The Liberals are Partying on what they hope to soon be the GRAVE of America…and making you and I PAY FOR IT!!!
Patriots, I implore you, use a modicum of restraint, but let the Obama Administration KNOW that “We The People” do NOT like this and will NOT tolerate it one bit!!
Get ahold of these Commie Traitors and let them KNOW what YOU think of ALL this!!!
Larry, while the real unemployment number may not be as high as 36% yet, bear in mind that the Amnesty for nearly 2 million illegals hasn't kicked in yet. Give it a month. Maybe the new unemployment stats will get unconvinced and apathetic people off their butts on election day. If you don't vote, You may as well say "I voted for Obama."
Here's the data and numbers-
The True Unemployment Rate: 36%
Since the concept of people who aren’t looking for work is so fluid, and some of those people have clearly been persuaded not to look for work because of job-destroying government policies, it might be more logical to measure unemployment using the standard incorrectly offered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the U-3 rate: “total unemployed, as a percent of the civilian labor force.” That’s what the U-3 rate claims to measure, but it doesn’t, not by a long shot.
What is the current percentage of working-age Americans, eligible to participate in the civilian labor force, but not currently working? Answer: 36.3 percent.
Human Events is one of the most reliable and trusted Conservative news sources for the last 40 years...I believe John Hayward is right.
Isnt it a little late in the game for us to be concerned with old bad news, when we have so much new bad news right in front of us?
Well, THIS is happening NOW...so it's pretty "new news".
But again Larry, Obama is a fraud and an an impostor and everything he has done could be repealed if only someone were to fight for him to be PRPOERLY identified. He has our Nukes, our secrets, and stlll we dont know his real name! Why is not Romney demanding that Obama meet the Constitutional requirements? Why wont Romney and his eliite croneys even discuss the matter? Does that mean they are going to let all this pass>> Time someone DID something
A picture that says 10,000 words!
At this point, I'm so disgusted with the white house occupant, looking at him makes me sick.
He did tell us a year ago his plan.
Obama plan: Destroy Romney
A very poor example of a POTUS and a very good example of a failure.
Larry, I'll make it short and sweet - Obama is the one burning it -
Yep...you got that right 100%!
Brilliant! - Now let's ATTACK him and them.
I don't understand how they can lie about all statistics on how we are doing. Maybe it is for the history books. The anology of us to Rome is very fitting example to our situation. How do we get our Country Back ? How can we make our Political Leaders be Honorable. Do we have anyone with Character or Patriotism ? All of the distraction continually thrown out to put up the Smoke Screens. We all know what they are so I won't list them here. I hope Romney Stays Focused. He must quit beeing such a Gentleman. This is Politics. McCain sold us out and laid down. ( Not sure Why ) maybe part of The Socialist Elitist plan. There are many Evil people in the world trying to take down America. We must deceide whether we will stand up for freedom or lay down to Communism. ( Which has never worked ) What is your Choice ? These people have to be called out for all of the Lies they keep telling. He's using some of the Left Over Hippies from the 1960's. (That should be in Prison)
