 “The story of the Athenians in the time of Pericles suggests that the creation and survival of democracy requires leadership of a high order. When tested, the Athenians behave with the requied devotion, wisdom, and moderation in large part because they had been inspired by the democratic vision and example that Pericles had so effectively communicated to them. It was a vision that exalted the individual within the political community; it limited the scope and power of the state, leaving enough space for individual freedom, privacy, and the human dignity of which they are a crucial part. It rejected the leveling principle pursued by both ancient Sparta and modern socialism, which requires the suppression of those rights. By reqarding merit, it encouraged the individual achievement and excellence that makes life sweet and raises the qualtiy  of life for everyone. Above all, Pericles convinced the Athenians that their private needs, both moral and material, required the kind of community Athens had become. Therefore, they were willing to run risks in its defense, make sacrifices on its behalf, and restrain their passions and desires to preserve it.”

~Donald Kagan, Pericles of Athens and the Birth of Democracy, page 273.

“Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.”

The collectivists in the United States are primarily progressive radical socialists of the Democratic Party led by President Barack Obama.

These progressive radical socialists have crammed down an Obama Care law that the vast majority of the American people who are satisfied with their health insurance plan and/or medical care are opposed to by a significant majority.

Camp Floor Statement Against the Democrats’ Trillion Dollar Health Care Bill

ECONOMIC COLLAPSE under obama budget

The use of the power of the state or the Federal Government to force the American people to buy  mandated health insurance plans or face fines and taxes collected by the Internal Revenue Service is both unconstitutional and un-american.

The progressive radical socialists of the Democratic Party know the American people are angry and outraged with the Obama Care law.

The progressive radical socialists fear the American people.

The progressive radical socialists fear is well founded.

The progressive radical socialists fear has resulted in an attempt by them to shut the American people up by calling any dissent or opposition to the Obama Care bill–racism that will lead to violence.

The irony is that the Federal funding of abortions through subsidies that go to pay for health insurance plans that cover abortions as basic medical care kills the unborn child–racism and violence of unprecedent magnitude–evil.

The Obama Care bill is aimed directly at blacks, hispanics and the poor  to assist women in killing their unborn children–black, hispanic and poor genocide or democide–death by government.

The majority of the American people oppose the Federal government funding of  abortions, either directly or indirectly through subsidies to those who cannot afford health insurance plans. 

 A Presidential Executive banning the funding of abortions using Federal funds is not the law and can be rescinded at any time and does not have to be implemented. An Executive Order is just words on a piece of paper. The killing of thousands of black, hispanic and poor unborn babies continues daily–mass murder.

Obama Supports Planned Parenthood (Racist Planned Parenthood Organizaton)

Using the power of the state or Federal government to fund abortions is in fact modern day eugenics that was in the past and is now largely supported by those that are truly racist elitists at heart–progressive radical socialists.

The next time a progressive radical socialist of either the Democratic or Republican party asserts that opposition to the Obama Care law is racist and will lead to violence, just tell them to take a look in the mirror and go visit a Planned Parenthood abortion center in black, hispanic and the poor  neighborhoods of their city or the nation’s capital, Washington D.C.–America’s killing fields and concentration clinics.

The American people now know and understand that the progressive radical socialists of the Democratic Party lead by President Barack Obama are today’s racists and killers of the most defenseless Americans– the unborn child and sick mature adults needing medical care and treatment.

The cuts in Medicare that will soon surpass over trillion dollars per year will directly result the deaths of hundreds of thousands if not millions of Americans that will not get the care and treatment they need in a timely manner.

Any American now receiving Medicare or the baby-boom generation that will in the next twenty-five years be relying on Medicare,  should vote all of the progressive radical socialists of both the Democratic and Republicans out of office in the next five elections.

The life you save may be your own or your child’s or grandchild’s baby.

When the progressive radical socialists must daily use lies and false charges of racism and violence against those who disagree with what they did, you know that fear and panic has set in among the progressive radical socialists.

Throw these progressive radical socialist out of office and power by using the ballot box in November and for the next ten years.

Whatever you decide to do, do not be baited into resenting them or using their tactics of lies and false accusations or even violence to respond.

If you do this, know this is exactly how the progressive radical socialists want you to respond.

This is the loser’s  game.

Vote the progressive radical socialists out of office and out of power.

Banish them to the private sector and let them make a living there, if they can.

Athens was the first republic or democracy.

Athens lost Peloponnesian War when Persia (Iran,) became allies and supported  Sparta. Although defeated in war the Athenians eventually recovered from their defeat and ousted both the Four Hundred oligarchs and The Thirty Tyrants in Athens that were backed by Sparta.

America has been at war with Iran supported by the Soviet Union now Russia for over thirty years, despite the efforts of both Republican and Democratic administrations to deny or play down this fact.  The Iranians use proxies to kill Americans and their allies both Britain and Israel.

Iran – The Mother of Modern Islamic Terrorism

America can ill afford a President who  appeases the Iranian regime instead of supporting the vast majority of Iranians  who demonstrate and risk their livies daily to replace the current political regime with a truly fairly elected and  representative government.

Michael Ledeen: Bring Down the Iranian Regime

The American people will not willing let their own representative republic be replaced by the modern day  equivalent of what Sparta imposed on Athens, the Four Hundred oligarchs and The Thirty Tyrants–the czars or commissars surrounding President Obama and the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

The progressive radical socialist goals are socialized medicine or a Federal Government monopoly over health care with a single payer being the Federal Government and amnesty for the over thirty million illegal aliens living and working in the United States with comprehensive immigration reform and a pathway to citizenship.

Obama Double Talk, Caught In A Lie, Illegals and Healthcare Health Care, Immigration Reform Fox


The vast majority of the American people oppose both socialized medicine and amnesty for illegal aliens no matter what lies or words are used to describe Obama Care and Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

The vast majority of the American people want to keep their current health insurance plan, doctor and privacy and want limited legal immigration and illegal alien removal and deportation to their country of origin–immigration law enfocement.

The time has come to cleanup the House of Representatives, the Senate and The Executive Branch and vote out of office and power the progressive radical socialists that are wrecking the United States economy, destroying jobs, and killing the American Dream by creating dependency upon the state or government instead of individual self-reliance and achievement.

The progressive radical socialists are for social justice or stealing the American people’s  hard earned money by government taxation, regulation, force and coercion so that the progressive radical socialists can give the taxes and property stolen from the American people to their political friends and supporters such as ACORN and SEIU. Stealing is stealing now matter what you want to call it and how you accomplish it.

President Obama is the leader of this gang of corrupt crooks or progressive radical socialists.

Vote the progressive radical socialists out of office and power and punish them by putting them in jail where they truly belong!

Pericles speaking of the earlier Athenians  said they were the first to establish democracy by:

“believing the liberty of all to be the strongest source of harmony, by sharing with each other the hopes that arose from their shared dangers they had freedom of soul in their civic life. They used the law for honoring the good and punishing the evil. For they thought that it was the way of the wild beast to be ruled by one another by force, but that men should decide justice by law, to convince by reason, and to serve these two in act by submitting to the sovereignty of law and the instruction of reason.”

~Lysis, Funeral Oration 17-19.


“Moral excellence comes about as a result of habit. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts.”

War and Democracy in Ancient and Contemporary Middle East

Peloponnesian War

The Peloponnesian War, 431 to 404 B.C., was an ancient Greek war, fought by Athens and its empire against the Peloponnesian League, led by Sparta. Historians have traditionally divided the war into three phases. In the first phase, the Archidamian War, Sparta launched repeated invasions of Attica, while Athens took advantage of its naval supremacy to raid the coast of the Peloponnese attempting to suppress signs of unrest in its empire. This period of the war was concluded in 421 BC, with the signing of the Peace of Nicias. That treaty, however, was soon undermined by renewed fighting in the Peloponnese. In 415 BC, Athens dispatched a massive expeditionary force to attack Syracuse in Sicily; the attack failed disastrously, with the destruction of the entire force, in 413 BC. This ushered in the final phase of the war, generally referred to either as the Decelean War, or the Ionian War. In this phase, Sparta, now receiving support from Persia, supported rebellions in Athens’ subject states in the Aegean Sea and Ionia, undermining Athens’ empire, and, eventually, depriving the city of naval supremacy. The destruction of Athens’ fleet at Aegospotami effectively ended the war, and Athens surrendered in the following year.

The Peloponnesian War reshaped the Ancient Greek world. On the level of international relations, Athens, the strongest city-state in Greece prior to the war’s beginning, was reduced to a state of near-complete subjection, while Sparta became established as the leading power of Greece. The economic costs of the war were felt all across Greece; poverty became widespread in the Peloponnese, while Athens found itself completely devastated, and never regained its pre-war prosperity.[1][2] The war also wrought subtler changes to Greek society; the conflict between democratic Athens and oligarchic Sparta, each of which supported friendly political factions within other states, made civil war a common occurrence in the Greek world.

Greek warfare, meanwhile, originally a limited and formalized form of conflict, was transformed into an all-out struggle between city-states, complete with atrocities on a large scale. Shattering religious and cultural taboos, devastating vast swathes of countryside, and destroying whole cities, the Peloponnesian War marked the dramatic end to the fifth-century-B.C. golden age of Greece.[3]


Congressional Progressive Caucus

The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) is the largest caucus within the Democratic caucus in the United States Congress with 83 declared members, and works to advance progressive issues and positions.[1]

The CPC was founded in 1991 and currently has more than 80 members. The Caucus is co-chaired by Representatives Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ) and Lynn Woolsey (D-CA). Of the 20 standing committees of the House, 11 are chaired by members of the CPC.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) was established in 1991 by six members of the United States House of Representatives: Representatives Ron Dellums (D-CA), Lane Evans (D-IL), Thomas Andrews (D-ME),Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Then-Representative Bernie Sanders was the convener and first. The founding members were concerned about the economic hardship imposed by the deepening recession, and the growing inequality brought about by the timidity of the Democratic Party response at the time.

Additional House representatives joined soon, including Major Owens (D-NY), Nydia Velázquez (D-NY), David Bonior (D-MI), Bob Filner (D-CA), Barney Frank (D-MA), Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), Jim McDermott (D-WA), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Patsy Mink (D-HI), George Miller (D-CA), Pete Stark (D-CA), John Olver (D-MA), Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

The CPC’s founding statement of purpose states that it was “organized around the principles of social and economic justice, a non-discriminatory society, and national priorities which represent the interests of all people, not just the wealthy and powerful”. The founding members underscored that the Cold War was over, and that the nation’s budget and overall priorities should reflect that. They called for cuts in outdated and unnecessary military spending, a more progressive tax system in which wealthy taxpayers and corporations contribute their fair share, a substantial increase in federal funding for social programs designed to meet the needs of low and middle-income American families, and trade policies that increase the exports of more American products and encourage the creation of well-paying jobs and sound investment in America. They also expressed their belief that those policy goals could be achieved in concert with a commitment to long-term fiscal responsibility. …”

 Progressive Caucus (Democratic) (PC-D)'s Visual Map

  • Radical caucus of nearly six-dozen members of the House of Representatives
  • Until 1999, worked in open partnership with Democratic Socialists of America

The Progressive Caucus is an organization of Members of Congress founded in 1991 by newly-elected House Representative Bernie Sanders (Independent-Vermont), who is a self-described socialist.

As of April 2007, the Progressive Caucus included Sanders (who became a U.S. Senator in 2006), Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio, and 69 members of the House of Representatives, all of them leftist Democrats and almost all in districts heavily gerrymandered to guarantee the re-election of any Democratic Party incumbent, no matter how extreme.

On November 11, 1999, the Progressive Caucus drafted its Position Paper on economic inequality. It reads, in part, as follows: “Economic inequality is the result of two and a half decades of government policies and rules governing the economy being tilted in favor of large asset owners at the expense of wage earners. Tax policy, trade policy, monetary policy, government regulations and other rules have reflected this pro-investor bias. We propose the introduction or reintroduction of a package of legislative initiatives that will close America’s economic divide and address both income and wealth disparities. … The concentration of wealth is a problem because it distorts our democracy, destabilizes the economy and erodes our social and cultural fabric.”

In order “to bring new life to the progressive voice in U.S. politics,” the Progressive Caucus has worked closely with Progressive Challenge, a project of the Institute for Policy Studies. Progressive Challenge is a coalition through which the activities and talking points of leftist groups are synchronized and harmonized with one another, producing coordinated, mutually-reinforcing propaganda from some 200 seemingly-unconnected groups.

In 2005 the Progressive Caucus crafted its “Progressive Promise” document, which advocates socialized medicine; radical environmentalism; the redistribution of wealth; higher taxes; the elimination of numerous provisions of the Patriot Act; dramatic reductions in the government’s intelligence-gathering capabilities; debt relief for poor countries; and the quick withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. These measures, says the Progressive Caucus, would help “re-build U.S. alliances around the world, restore international respect for American power and influence, and reaffirm our nation’s constructive engagement in the United Nations and other multilateral organizations.”

Until 1999 the Progressive Caucus worked in open partnership with Democratic Socialists of America. After the press reported on this link, the connections suddenly vanished from both organizations’ websites.

As of June 2006, the following Members of Congress belonged to the Progressive Caucus: Neil Abercrombie; Tammy Baldwin; Xavier Becerra; Madeleine Z. Bordallo; Corrine Brown; Sherrod Brown; Michael Capuano; Julia Carson; Donna Christensen; William “Lacy” Clay; Emanuel Cleaver; John Conyers; Elijah Cummings; Danny Davis; Peter DeFazio; Rosa DeLauro; Lane Evans; Sam Farr; Chaka Fattah; Bob Filner; Barney Frank; Raul Grijalva; Luis Gutierrez; Maurice Hinchey; Jesse Jackson, Jr.; Sheila Jackson-Lee; Stephanie Tubbs Jones; Marcy Kaptur; Carolyn Kilpatrick; Dennis Kucinich; Tom Lantos; Barbara Lee; John Lewis; Ed Markey; Jim McDermott; James P. McGovern; Cynthia McKinney; George Miller; Gwen Moore; Jerrold Nadler; Eleanor Holmes Norton; John Olver; Major Owens; Ed Pastor; Donald Payne; Nancy Pelosi; Charles Rangel; Bobby Rush; Bernie Sanders; Jan Schakowsky; Jose Serrano; Louise Slaughter; Hilda Solis; Pete Stark; Bennie Thompson; John Tierney; Tom Udall; Nydia Velazquez; Maxine Waters; Diane Watson; Mel Watt; Henry Waxman; and Lynn Woolsey.
