The Government, Health Care and a Story
Visit my Website USAWatchmen.com Follow me on Twitter usawatchmen I think most people agree that America needs Health Care Reform. I said REFORM, not a complete takeover. We do need something to keep the Insurance companies from declining everything, some tort reform, and maybe the ability to purchase insurance out of state. We’ve heard all the ideas and I certainly don’t have any of the | Read More »
Last of the Die Hards
America, here is an example of what our Nation doesn’t need. Katie Couric, who was once highly touted has fallen to the lower ranks of journalism. Katie works for CBS and seems to be in a “rock and hardplace,” if she doesn’t show strong allegiance to CBS, she’ll flat be replaced. The Katie we use to know was ethical, honest and a real professional that | Read More »
Wake Up and Smell the Socialism
Visit My Website: USAWatchmen.com I mention Mr. Obama and Socialism in the same sentence to some of my Liberal friends and they give me dirty looks, and tell me I’m out of my mind, and then they close up and wont talk any longer. I send them articles that shows Mr. Obama has Marxist and Socialist ties, but they don’t read a word and then | Read More »
Irony, thy name is Government
You can always trust the government to pull an Orwell and regularly use words that mean the opposite of their political meaning. Take “Non-Discretionary Spending,” for example. What is, by its nature, the most discretionary part of our budget, social programs like Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid, are called “non-discretionary.” The money that funds what our government is meant to do, that is, the courts, regulatory | Read More »
Americans Are Governable. Progressives Are In Serious Denial.
When Gregory Rodriguez wrote his column for today’s edition of The LA Times, he did one thing exceptionally well. He put the bottom line right up front. Let me get straight to the point: Americans’ profound distrust of government is neurotic — irrational, defensive and born of emotional trauma. Thus I’ll follow his example and get right after a point of my own. Gregory Rodriguez | Read More »
Its A Jungle Out There – Americans
2010 promises to be a repeat of 2009 – Mr. Obama hasn’t changed and his concentration isn’t on our Nation or Americans. What amazes me is the attitude of “Change,” his change – loss of jobs, homes and Americans’ faith in his ability to protect our Nation and fellow citizens absolutely are of no concern to Obama.

Barackcracy and the coming end of the worlds largest Ponzi scheme.
More Czars, more registered lobbyists than ever, more alphabet organizations and plans, more government takeover of private entities, more regulation, legislation, and higher taxation coupled with an aging population with more entitlements, will lead to more crisis governance. Putting out the hottest fire(many times unintended consequences actually throw gasoline) will rule the day. Our government has been kicking the can down the road for | Read More »
The Intellectual High Ground
The Constitution, The Intellectual High Ground Thomas Jefferson wrote: “In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” Today the Constitution is used by our leader to bind the people. The Constitution was written as a contract that all elected leader swore to follow. It was the chains that | Read More »
Utah Senator Bob Bennett is No Friend of the Constitution
Due primarily to the influence of a large number of members of the LDS Church, Utah has an interesting political dynamic with regards to the Constitution. A majority of residents would agree with the statement that the Constitution is an inspired document, and many profess a love of and respect for this foundation of our government. More importantly, there are many who are willing to promote and defend its principles—evidenced by the swelling ranks and increased activity of organizations such as the Campaign for Liberty, Tea Party Patriots, 9/12, Patrick Henry Caucus, John Birch Society, and others.
At a time when our Constitution is being ignored, subverted, and dismissed as an anachronistic piece of history, we have seen a number of individuals who are concerned enough to offer their services in its defense by stepping into the 2010 Senate race. Many of the positions held by these candidates are familiar to Utahns because they are based in the Constitution, founded upon the principles of liberty, and resonate with individuals seeking to get the federal government off of their backs and out of their wallets.
Three-term incumbent Senator Bob Bennett, however, appears clearly out of step with this adherence to the Constitution and out of touch with his constituents. So foreign is his message to those he portends to represent that in one recent “fireside chat” he stated that he was holding such meetings to “reintroduce [himself] to the people of Utah.” A recent poll showed that 73% of Republicans voters feel that congressional Republicans have lost touch with their base. Senator Bennett, then, certainly has plenty of company.

Government Health Care Disaster
First of all, I am a physician in the state of Kansas. This whole health care debacle terrifies me on multiple levels, from the total disregard for the Constitution by our elected officials, to the devastating impact it will have on the quality of health care we receive. Scott Brown is a glimmer of hope and I pray that he wins, but what has the | Read More »

What Do We Declare?
In my monthly newsletter I wrote about the determination of some to destroy the inner beauty that our forefathers placed within the governmental system. The Declaration of Independence offers a solution which most citizens would not ascribe to. One section of the declaration even asks the question of when we should act and when we should not act. ” governments are instituted among men, deriving | Read More »
