In a disturbing case with ominous implications for our democratic rights, U.S. Judge R. Barclay Surrick granted a motion by Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee to dismiss a challenge to Obama’s constitutional qualifications to run for President on grounds that a mere citizen does not have legal standing to sue.
Philip Berg, a Democrat and former Assistant Attorney General for Pennsylvania, brought suit alleging that under the Natural Born Citizen Clause of the U.S. Constitution, Obama is ineligible to be President.
Judge Surrick states that citizens may not sue to enforce the Constitution without statutory authorization from Congress.
While it is has been reported on by multiple news organizations for months and its the little secret everyone inside the beltway knows— I still found this interesting. The sitting GOP Leader - President George W. Bush has yet to make a single campaign appearance this year for a federal Republican candidate. While most of us believe the Bush legacy will be tainted in some fashion, this is just another example of to what extent. MSNBC Reports Below:
Thats right. Barack Obama, I oppose most of what you stand for, especially your economic policies. Unless you are talking about Iraq or civil liberties I really do not find any of your policy stances likable, and even then I generally do not approve of your approach to the problems. You have taken a stand against upper middle class families who have worked their way to the top, yet you also stand with the various corporate interests.
Ending the income tax at any level is a worthy goal, and it appears that goal may well be accomplished in Massachusetts this year. The following is a message from the Campaign for Liberty in support of the organization SmallGovernmentAct.org.
Dear Fellow Supporters of Ron Paul,
Ron Paul campaigned to Repeal the Income Tax – and dramatically shrink the size and power of government. Now you have the opportunity to take the first step to make Ron Paul’s dream a reality – by helping us to repeal the income tax in Massachusetts this November 4th.
We are co-sponsors of Ballot Question 1, the legally-binding ballot measure that will END the Massachusetts state income tax.
For years liberals, conservatives, independents, DC, Main Street and Wall Street seemingly defied all normality and not only embraced, but nearly worshiped the same individual, Alan Greenspan. After rising in 1987 to the position of Chairman of the Federal Reserve, the most powerful financial position in the world, he presided over the most sustained period of economic growth in the history of America. He rode the wave of private sector technological achievements that created abnormally high productivity growth. To many it was his greatness that brought about the increase in income, increase in homeownership, increase in credit, increase in all things material — while still maintaining price stability.
Last week we published an article “Bush Agrees to Timetable” that gave a 100 mile flyover of the “sticky situation” the Bush Administration is in with regards to its Iraq policy. Over the weekend public reporting of the issue has matured and it seems that the security agreement being pushed by the U.S. is not only in a fragile state, but also unlikely to pass in its current form.
In a follow up to last week’s post- Gitmo Prosecutor Quits Due to Lack of Fairnesss in System- 5 detainees originally being prosecuted by Lt. Col. Darrel Vandeveld, who resigned recently due to “a crisis of conscience”, will have their current charges against them dropped.
The Washington Post published an editorial Monday titled “Is Capitalism Dead?”, that answered the question with a light-hearted affirmative, but with a couple key qualifiers- the first and most obvious being “we did not have Adam Smith capitalism”-
We’ll never know how this newly liberated financial sector might have performed on a playing field designed by Adam Smith. That’s because government interventions of all kinds, from the defense budget to farm supports, shaped the business environment.
The second- and probably more meaningful for typical Washington Post reader- being that we had “upside only capitalism”.
These days it seems there is little disagreement that consumers are over-leveraged and over-consuming, yet few pundits, economists, or politicians are willing to accept the remedies obviously needed to solve the massive crisis. Our culture tells us we must spend everything we make, and then more, and not only keep up with the Joneses, but to kick their ass or go down in a sea of debt trying.
While Americans should at all times continuously educate themselves about the founding of this nation, its founding fathers, and its founding documents, this is especially true during times of great uncertainty and inevitable political change. I think it would be safe to guess that Thomas Jefferson is the favorite revolutionary American philosopher and politician of a majority of United Liberty readers, so I have compiled some of my favorite Jefferson quotes-
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
