With less than a year left until the 2012 elections, it behooves Americans to review the past and make plans for the future. If we don't, there may be no future, at least not one free people will play a part in. A fawning article from the AP, the source of much of the fodder for the leftist propaganda machine, spills the proverbial beans about what we can expect to see from Obama-Soetoro and his band of merry fascists in the coming months (http://news.yahoo.com/2012-obama-press-ahead-without-congress-110509288.html).

Dramatically headlined, "In 2012, Obama to press ahead without Congress," it approvingly talks about how Obama-Soetoro is planning to end-run Congress and the Constitution in 2012, continuing the use of executive orders, administrative rules, and things like recess appointments to illegally impose his radical Marxist and neo-fascist agenda. In addition, he plans to use taxpayer money to continue gallivanting around the country, campaigning while pretending to be doing government business. The AP "reporter" clearly approves of this lawless behavior. Not surprising, considering how the Ministry of Propaganda has covered up all the Democrat/Obama-Soetoro scandals over the past three years.

A brief look back makes it crystal clear that lies have replaced the Rule of Law for the Left. Dr. Alan Bates, MD, points out a few from Obama-Soetoro when he ran back in 2008:

"I promise 100 percent transparency in my administration."

"I will allow five days of public comment before I sign any bills."

"I'll put the health care negotiations on C-SPAN so everyone can see who is at the table."

He also reminds us about Obama-Soetoro and his "Attorney General," Eric Holder, suing Arizona and Alabama for trying to protect the interests of Americans by enforcing immigration laws (http://gulf1.typepad.com/gulf1_c_ab2/2011/12/obamas-corruption-secrecy-and-contempt-exposed.html).

Actually, the Injustice Department has become so corrupt under Eric Holder and Obama-Soetoro, that it, like the EPA, the departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, and Health and Human Services, should be shut down, and its employees and the political appointees in charge subjected to thorough investigation, resulting in indictments, convictions, and maximum prison terms.

However, only a fool would expect anything different. Marxists and fascists are, by definition, anti-people, totalitarian statists, who see themselves as an enlightened ruling elite, completely above the law. What should be expected, though, is strong opposition from those who supposedly have been sent to Washington to represent us "ordinary" Americans, and who, hand on the Bible, swore an oath:
    "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
I am still waiting for the phonies in the House to pass a bill repealing ObamaCare. They couldn't even bring themselves to defund it, and it's not likely they will even bring the topic up, unless we do.

This is the same bunch that refused to make Obama-Soetoro obey the War Powers Act regarding his murderous war against Libya. Nor have they made any serious efforts to free the 28 budget-fixing bills held prisoner by Senate Democrats and establishment RINOs. Both the House and the Senate have been content to ignore the Constitution regarding the submission of a budget for the country for years, and it appears that this will not change this year, either.

The list goes on and on and on and on...

The point here is that we must — I repeat, must — rid ourselves of these spineless, self-serving parasites who are killing our country. There are a few fine people in Congress, and we need to look carefully at them so we have standards to judge replacements for the rest by. Ones that come immediately to mind include:

Allen West (R-FL); Ted Poe (R-TX); Louis Gohmert (R-TX); Steve Pearce (R-NM); Joe Wilson (R-SC); Jim DeMint (R-SC); Rand Paul (R-KY); Marco Rubio (R-FL)

If a candidate for the Senate or the House doesn't have qualities and a record similar to these guys, then find someone else to vote for. We can't afford to put up with the status quo any longer.

As for the Republican candidates for president, only Bachman and Santorum are true conservatives. The rest are RINOs, fringe libertarians, and/or phonies. But the bottom line is that if we have real, Constitution-loving Americans in control of the Senate and the House, it don't mean jack who is president.
