I'm Very Disappointed by Tom Niewulis Jr

I'm very disappointed in the vote of the many Republicans that voted for the Payroll Tax extension. I read the bill and am aghast at what is in this legislation. I verified in the language that there are more fees and cost to the public than what any of the short term savings will be to a tax payer.

Anyone who voted for this bill is not any different than the Pelosi crew that gave us Obama-care. This is the same insanity of foisting an omnibus bill on the Citizenry under false pretenses. Oh, yes, the Keystone project is in there but, the president is being defiant with that as well as the removal of funding for several of his czar's. So, those that voted for the Payroll Tax extension gave a tyrant more to thumb his nose at We The People as well as continue to subversively tax the people, especially new home buyers or those refinancing their homes, through fees.

Again we are seeing the 1760 through the 1770's playing themselves out but only this time under our own elected persons that should be acting to protect our property (money) and Liberty. God help us! We need to repent and return this nation to the Foundations under which it was formed.
 After re-reading the bill, I will attest that all those so called conservative republicans that voted for this bill show that they are Pro-abortion. In this bill is federal funding for abortions in the Washington, D.C. area! So I call on all the Citizens to challenge their so called conservative representative on why they are now pro-abortion and scold them for being ignorant of the full content of the bill. We must stop these omnibus bills they are full of evil!!

Whose Responsibility is it? by Lynn Costello

As we ponder the many problems facing America today it is easy to get lost in the maze of out of control spending, lack of leadership and accountability, intrusive and oppressive regulatory agencies, failing schools and a culture lacking moral authority.   If we delve deeper searching for the root of these problems I believe the answer will be found not in the centralized and expanding federal government, not in incompetent or leaderless politicians, but with the people themselves.  The Constitution provided for the balance of power between the federal government, the states and the people; the ultimate power, responsibility and authority residing with the people.  It is, therefore, the people who have failed to see that this perfect balance was maintained and it is the people who will have to rise to the occasion and accept responsibility, the responsibility that accompanies citizenship.

It must begin with a concerted effort to redistribute responsibilities by reducing the size, scope and functions of the federal government to those powers enumerated in the Constitution.  At the same time, the States must become sovereigns governing according to their unique geographies and particulars of their citizens.  Local governments being closest to the people are the ones first to hear from the people and should be the most open and responsive.  The people must become citizen leaders who are responsible first for themselves and their families, then to their neighborhoods and communities and finally as overseers of all levels of government that serve them.

Tolstoy’s question:  What is man’s responsibility to society which results from freedom?  Or, what responsibilities does a free man have that a non-free man does not?
