“I am certain that nothing has done so much to destroy the juridical safeguards of individual freedom as the striving after this mirage of social justice. “

Obama wants to destroy our healthcare: Mark Levin on Hannity


 

No matter how good a salesman you are, trying to sell a product or service that people do not want can be difficult.

Few Americans want to pay more money for electricity,  gasoline, food or health care.

Most Americans would like to see lower prices for electricity, gasoline, food, health care and other goods and services.

Americans are always looking for a bargain or lower prices.

The Cap and Trade Con Exposed – It’s your money they want – It’s a “Tax” for Goldman Sachs

Call of the Wild: Cap & Tax Policy

If the cap and trade energy tax bill were to pass, the prices of all goods and service that use energy will rise significantly.

Using propaganda or public relations to market the concept that man is the cause of global warming or climate change is not working.

The American people have an innate common sense that tells them that man is not responsible for climate change or global warming.

Think about it for a minute.

Man is the cause of the weather.

Are you crazy?

Apparently many in the progressive radical socialist Democratic Party are nuts if they think the American people are falling for this nonsense and hysteria.

Nice try but no sale on the energy tax or cap and trade.

Most Americans have health insurance coverage that they like and are satisfied with and do not want to be forced to changed to another plan.

Please leave us alone is a message the political elites have trouble understanding.

Obama Calls for New Health Care Spending Cuts

 

Brown-Waite: President’s words do not match his party’s plan

Blatant Hypocrisy: The Democrats Silence on Obama Medicare Cuts

The American people do not want their health insurance taxed.

The American people do not want to pay the health insurance coverage of illegal aliens nor for Americans who can afford coverage but elect to spend their money on something else.

Testimony of illegal alien care from 1 Florida hospital

Barack Obama Health Care Benefits For Illegal Aliens!

Cavuto: Will Illegal Immigrants Get Free Health Care with Barack Obama’s Plan?

The American people do not want to see Medicare expenditures significantly cut so that illegal aliens can have health insurance as well as jobs that American citizens should have and did before the political elites in Washington supported open borders and amnesty proposals.

Medicare cuts – the effect on family physicians and patients

There are roughly between 15,000,000 and 30,000,000 illegal aliens working and living in the United States. Nobody including the US government has a more accurate estimate and the US government is not commenting on the range. It could actually be higher!

These illegal aliens make up a large percentage of the so-called health care uninsured of roughly 50,000,000.

While American citizens will be forced to buy a mandatory Federal Government qualified health insurance plan or face an IRS fine, illegal aliens would continue to be eligible for free health care at our hospitals and emergency rooms.

HOSPITALS CLOSING DOWN DUE TO ILLEGAL ALIENS DEMANDING CARE

The Federal Government headed by President Obama continues to refuse to remove and deport illegal aliens–they cannot find them–except when it comes time to provide health care benefits and in the future amnesty and a “pathway to citizenship”.

The American people who are between jobs and looking for work do not want to be forced into buying health insurance instead of food for their family and gasoline to look for a job.

The American people want to spend their hard earned money on the goods and services they want to spend them on and not pay for the health care of illegal aliens.

This is what economists call consumer sovereignty .

The progressive radical socialists of the Democratic Party led by President Obama want to replace consumer soveignity with government soveignity where they decide what you will buy.

When our representatives and Senators return to their congressional districts and states, the American consumer and voter will be heard.

Both the cap and trade energy tax and the Obama care health care bills are not what the American people want or need.

Any elected politician that supports these bills can be expected to be voted out of office in 2010, 2012, or 2014.

In America consumers are king and voters can and will change their minds as to who represents them in Washington.

More and more Americans are also noticing that Barack Obama is a notorious liar.

People do not willingly buy from a salesman they do not trust.

Increasingly more and more reporters and commentors on television and talk radio are noticing President Obama’s habitual lying.

Once this trust with the American people is broken, the American people will lose any confidence that the President can be believed and trusted on anything.

In less than twelve months Barack Obama’s presidency will be over when his lying and hidden agenda are revealed as something the American people and voters do not want nor need.

“Is it really likely that a National Planning Officer would have a better judgement of ‘the number of cars, the number of generators, and the quantities of frozen foods we are likely to require in, say, five years,’ than Ford or General Motors etc., and, even more important, would it even be desirable that various companies in an industry all act on the same guess? ”

~Friedrich A. Hayek, New Studies in Philosophy Politics, Economics and the History of Ideas (1978)

August 22: Join the nationwide Recess Rally; Dems performing CPR on Obamacare

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 29, 2009 10:27 AM

 

recess_rally

“…We have the momentum to kill Obamacare.

The congressional recess period is critical.

I’ve joined many grass-roots groups in a nationwide coalition holding a Recess Rally on August 22, 2009.

The Tea Party revolt and the grass-roots counterinsurgency against the health care takeover have taken congressional offices locally and Washington, D.C. by storm.

Now, more than ever: Crank it up, spread the truth, raise your voices, and tell Washington…

Hands Off Our Health Care. …”

Go to Recess Rally to get organized.

“…Consumer sovereignty is a term which is used in economics to refer to the rule or sovereignty of purchasers in markets as to production of goods. It is the power of consumers to decide what gets produced. People use the this term to describe the consumer as the “king,” or ruler, of the market, the one who determines what products will be produced. [1] Also, this term denotes the way in which a consumer ideologically choices to buy a good or service. Furthermore,the term can be used as either a norm (as to what consumers should be permitted) or a description (as to what consumers are permitted).

In unrestricted markets, those with income or wealth are able to use their purchasing power to motivate producers as what to produce (and how much). Customers do not necessarily have to buy and, if dissatisfied, can take their business elsewhere, while the profit-seeking sellers find that they can make the greatest profit by trying to provide the best possible products for the price (or the lowest possible price for a given product). In the language of cliché, “The one with the gold makes the rules.”

To most neoclassical economists, complete consumer sovereignty is an ideal rather than a reality because of the existence — or even the ubiquity — of market failure. Some economists of the Chicago school and the Austrian school see consumer sovereignty as a reality in a free market economy without interference from government or other non-market institutions, or anti-market institutions such as monopolies or cartels. That is, alleged market failures are seen as being a result of non-market forces.

The term “consumer sovereignty” was coined by William Hutt who firstly used it in his 1936 book “Economists and the Public”. …”

 Lindzen on Climate Hysteria

Resisting climate hysteria

by Richard S. Lindzen on Quadrant Online

July 26, 2009

A Case Against Precipitous Climate Action

“…The notion of a static, unchanging climate is foreign to the history of the earth or any other planet with a fluid envelope. The fact that the developed world went into hysterics over changes in global mean temperature anomaly of a few tenths of a degree will astound future generations. Such hysteria simply represents the scientific illiteracy of much of the public, the susceptibility of the public to the substitution of repetition for truth, and the exploitation of these weaknesses by politicians, environmental promoters, and, after 20 years of media drum beating, many others as well. Climate is always changing. We have had ice ages and warmer periods when alligators were found in Spitzbergen. Ice ages have occurred in a hundred thousand year cycle for the last 700 thousand years, and there have been previous periods that appear to have been warmer than the present despite CO2 levels being lower than they are now. More recently, we have had the medieval warm period and the little ice age. During the latter, alpine glaciers advanced to the chagrin of overrun villages. Since the beginning of the 19th Century these glaciers have been retreating. Frankly, we don’t fully understand either the advance or the retreat.
