If you happen to think that politics has NEVER been so partisan, think again. The troubles of the Donkey VS the Elephant began years ago…when George Washington, who was sick of all the partisan fighting said, “I’m leaving this town and you can TAKE this job and shove it.”
Okay, he was a lot more dignified about it. But the fighting started during his last years as President, and it has never stopped. The partisan bickering started: The Virginians VS the Northerners. (Or Federalists.) OR…South VS the North. The Jeffersonian VS the Federalists. Whatever—none of them got along.
In the North, Hamilton had already been working with the banks of England, and his push for a National Bank was seen by the South as a way to transfer power from the agrarian sectors of the South, to the commercial enterprises of the North. They (Lead by Jefferson) thought the National Bank was unconstitutional.
(Jefferson would be the Ron Paul of today.)
Abigail Adam’s keen observance— “I firmly believe that if I live ten years longer, I saw see a division of Northern and Southern states. “
And right when America was just getting her first steps: Along came the French Revolution. (1793) Washington declared the United States neutral. He didn’t want to take sides in the war between the French and the British, because the United States was heavily trading with BOTH countries. Add to that, we had signed a peace treaty with England in 1778.
But the people of the United States, loved the French and hated the British, for obvious reasons. America would not have been able to defeat the British without the French.
And so–the Partisan political divides began: French loving Americans sided with Thomas Jefferson, and basically started the democratic party, which they called Republican, to show you–that Democrats got the habit of saying everything backwards from Thomas Jefferson. (Hey, you tell me. They are STILL saying black is white.)
Now, France was not to let a good crisis go to waste, so getting together with Jefferson, the French Minister, Edmond Genet, started stirring up the masses to get Americans to defy their government and come to the cause of the French in liberty, equality, and fraternity. (Hope and Change to come) People protested and marched in every single city, and newspapers were filled with both sides–yelling obscenities like “You WAGGER FRENCH LOVER YOU!” And “YOU LOVE KING GEORGE AND EAT MY OYSTER”
And thus began partisan politics. Americans have not given it up since. In fact, we have perfected it, and made it a huge part of the American economic engine. (That’s another blog.)
But, back to 1793. Most of the people wanted to go back to war with Great Britain, and anyone who didn’t want to go back to war, was labeled: horrors of horrors: an aristocrat.
Now we can just call them “chicken- shits.”
Hard to believe that the Jeffersonian Republicans (democrats) wanted to go to war back then, but there you go. Like I said, confusion.
Republican editorials blasted Washington and Hamilton. They were both hated.
While Thomas Jefferson was Secretary of State, he was orchestrating the Republican opposition to the very government he officially served.
Imagine Harry Reid having secret meetings with the Koch Brothers.
So—-why was Jefferson rallying Americans to go after the British again? History reports he was afraid the government would become bigger than the states.
(Eventually, that DID happen.)
BUT..John Adams thought he knew the real reason:
In John’s opinion Jefferson’s true motives were blatantly self-serving. Like so many of the Virginia planters he was heavily in debt to British creditors, and therefore predisposed toward an anti-British foreign policy that would delay repayment into the indefinite future.
And so he spread the rumor that the treaty with Britain, which John Jay arranged, was the big problem. John Jay’s Treaty with Britain removed the British troops from the West, and stopped the British Frigates from raiding American ships in the Caribbean. That was a GOOD thing. The British paid us back for whatever we lost from their Navy raiding our ships, and we agreed that American debtors— chiefly Virginia planters— pay off their prewar debt to British creditors.
How did the American people feel about that Treaty? They burned John Jay effigies in every town.
(Now, you can’t even wear a NRA cap to the voting booth.)
And Jefferson had help. James Madison, was working with Jefferson (who was in hiding in Monticello pretending he was out of politics) and they sabotaged the treaty by denying the funds for its implantation it in the House.
(Something the House NEVER does now…Can you say, Obamacare?)
John believed he was watching the triumph of party politics in its most partisan form…and he said this:
The republican opposition was highly orchestrated, “all moving as one Man, not a dissenting Voice among them, appearing as if drawn by one Cord.”
And that’s what has made the democratic party so successful: That cord has never been broken.
So, how is Congress doing in 2014? They are as far apart as they were in the beginning. Nothing is new here under the sun, and nothing ever changes, except the corruption in both parties borders BEYOND the obscene.
(From FRIST FAMILY and YES–I’m still reading it. )
The most powerful ad ever made to defeat a democrat: This week we HAVE to give the Nobody’s Fool Award to Elbert Guillory. Elbert is ONE of the reasons, the elites want to censor all political ads on Youtube.
Congratulations Elbert—-you ARE a shining star to speakers of the truth. Thank you.
This video was taken in 2012. The most shocking thing about illegals getting BIG tax returns is that if you or I claimed Nieces and Nephews in some other country as dependents on our tax returns, we’d be audited.
So, the orders to send hard-working tax-payer money to illegal children in Mexico, HAS to come from the very top. We SHOULD make this an issue in the elections, but nobody is talking about it, are they?
I can’t help it. This REALLY pisses me off.
It’s now 2014, and since the IRS is now running Obamacare, can you imagine the fraud that is going to go on?
Nobody Wins when a government hides its corruption and destroy its people. How can Americans get mad when their own government keeps it all a secret?
Until our leaders can be held accountable for their crimes, “We The People” are merely servants of the state.
Okay. We all know the story of Jesus in the garden, and he wrestled with the Devil, but come on…let’s say for argument’s sake, that the “devil’ is real, and the Pope is weaponizing an army of priests to go out and do battle with them as in this report:
Pope Francis has told a convention of exorcists from around the world that they are doing sterling service in combating “the Devil’s works”, as the Catholic Church warned of a rise in Satanism and the occult.
The Pope, who frequently cites the fight against Satan in his sermons, said that exorcists needed to show “the love and welcome of the Church for those possessed by evil”. By treating people who were possessed, priests could demonstrate that “the Church welcomes those suffering from the Devil’s works,” he said in a message to a conference organized in Rome by the International Association of Exorcists.
So, is THAT why he can meet with Nancy Pelosi and NOT perform the exorcism required? Or Obama? Why is he sending out the priests to do exorcisms then? Shouldn’t all devils get the warmth and welcome of the Church?
Like I said, if the devil was real and the Pope believed it, he would personally go out an exorcise half the politicians in the world, but he welcomes them all with open arms.
I think if I met the pope, I’d probably have to throw some salt on him just to make sure he was NOT possessed. :)
It’s been another strange week, hasn’t it? Politically, it’s been the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s, or likely, the Zombies VS the Fairies, the mentally challenged VS the mentally absent…Donald Duck VS Goofy…Venus VS Pluto…I can’t handle it. The political script writers are getting crazy. .
That’s right…The democrats are threatening their base with a GOP Zombie threat:
Zombies have been a big deal in popular culture for a few years, and, according to a Sunday post on Daily Kos, in politics as well. Blogger JBtakenote declared that Republicans have morphed from a political party into a racist, plutocratic “zombie cult army” that Kossacks need to vote against in the midterms, even if they feel like sitting the election out to punish President Obama and other Democrats for being insufficiently liberal.
Nobody Knows if this tactic is going to work—call me a Zombie, but is Hillary becoming unhinged? First she was broke, and now, she is mentally challenged. Everyone heard her big speech in which she said that businesses do not create jobs, only to come back a few days later and say…oh no… entrepreneurs create jobs—and what THAT means is only the entrepreneurs picked and backed by some politician like our fascist dictator Obama can create jobs, who as we all remember, picked Solyndra to create energy jobs, and by the way—
Where were all those shovel ready jobs he promised to create? (Laugh here, or not.)
And speaking of shovel ready….did you see what happened today?
Nobody Knows how many more things can go wrong on Obama’s watch, but since he IS responsible for shutting down NASA, the whole world today got this lovely success story….America can’t launch a simple rocket anymore.
Yes, JFK sent us to the moon, and Obama can’t even get supplies to the space station. And WHY doesn’t RUSSIA get those supplies up there to the space station? Or–did Putin tell Obama: “Get your OWN supplies up there moron— or give me back my bank accounts.”
Nobody Knows if Putin has been playing that video on every Russian TV station, (I would) but hey— it’s just another one of Obama’s most embarrassing moments. Nobody Thinks that the Ebola Czar might have had a hand in that…after all, nobody can find him. Nobody Knows what happen to him. We are going to need him if the rumor is true…
A State Department memo confirms that the Obama administration is considering allowing non-U.S. citizens with Ebola to come into the country for treatment, Fox News reports. The internal memo is marked “Sensitive,” but unclassified and was written by a State Department official, reporter Mike Emanuel said Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report.”
There is also another ‘rumor’ to go along with that one:
Defense Secretary Hagel is considering a 21-day “quarantine-like” policy for all troops returning from West Africa, the Pentagon said Tuesday. The proposal was recommended to Hagel on Tuesday by the Joint Chiefs of Staff — which consists of its chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey and the chiefs of staff of the Army, Navy and Air Force.
So, let’s see if we got this straight: Doctors and nurses coming back to the Unites States do not have to be quarantined, they can bowl, eat at restaurants. (God forbid they have to use public restrooms) but our soldiers have to be quarantined.
Why? Because they are not doing as Obama says, “God’s work?” like the doctors?
And why should the United States have to pay to haul all those people over here, and put them up in our hospitals exposing even more nurses and doctors to the disease? Why should WE pay for their health care? Most Americans can’t even afford a major surgery now with Obamacare. Many Americans will die because of Obamacare.
Does Obama care more about African than Americans? Is he really going to do this?
Nobody knows. But there will be a lot of pissed-off people here if he does.
And speaking of pissed-off people.
The Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page had this to say about Obama:
USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page offered some of the sharpest criticism yet of the Obama administration’s violation of the freedom of the press, saying Obama is “more restrictive” and “more dangerous” than any president in history. Page delivered these comments at a White House Correspondents’ Association.
And speaking of dangerous..
Another administration official told Goldberg that he agreed the Israeli prime minister is a “chickens**t,” but went further, calling Netanyahu a “coward” in regards to the way he has dealt with the growing Iranian nuclear threat. According to the official, he no longer believes Netanyahu will preemptively strike Tehran to prevent the Middle Eastern country from attaining nuclear weapons.
WHAT? Obama is mad because Netanyahu won’t nuke Iran?
Nobody Knows why Obama keeps trying to pick fights with everybody in the world, but betting against Netanyahu and insulting him (come on…this would not have leaked if OBAMA didn’t want it to) only shows you why.. Susan Page was right: Obama IS a dangerous man. …and Nobody Knows how much more dangerous he is going to get.
In fact: I don’t WANNA know!
Wake me up when we reach the moon.
Drudge has done it again!
If you haven’t seen this, see it now. Then watch it again. Then say, “Well it’s about TIME they woke up.”
Just imagine if the blacks would see how they are being played for the sucker, how the country would change.
This is the best new we’ve had for a long time…and good for those men.
Please….Pass this around. :)
This week, AGAIN, Obama is showing his usual incompetence of NOT knowing what is going on around the world, or even caring about it. All he really knows, is the world is a mess, and it’s not his problem.
The White House is facing sharp criticism over its previous actions in the outbreak, which aid workers have lamented as insufficient half-measures given rapidly deteriorating conditions on the ground.
He didn’t see ISIS coming…and he didn’t see the Ebola epidemic coming either. So when the first Ebola case came over and infected two nurses, he had to get dress, go to the mike, and explain that he had his ‘people’ on it. But …he didn’t. So, trying to show how Presidential he can be, (unlike Obama) Chris Christie put a mandatory isolation policy on a nurse coming back from Africa, where she treated Ebola cases. He was going to show the world, HE would protect New Jersey.
She threatened to sue…she was released—probably by Obama.
The real news here, and it’s not good, is that Obama has completely checked out on protecting the American people or doing his job. He had no clue about ISIS, or Ebola. His biggest concern at the moment is what golf course he can get on that day.
Which leads me to the second contestant of the week: Clare Evans, had NO clue she was pregnant. (By the look on the kids face, he didn’t know she was pregnant either.)
A woman who went to her GP for a suspected kidney infection ended up giving birth in the treatment room – and says she had no idea she was pregnant.
Clare Evans, 24, from Newport, South Wales, visited an out-of-hours surgery complaining of pains in her abdomen.
Surprise! Your kidney is really cute!
Okay, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect but we are ALWAYS clueless Award for the week?
Is it Clare, who, no doubt didn’t want to admit that her kidney had a foot that sometimes kicked her at night…she thought it was just bad indigestion…..
Or is it Obama, who knew about ISIS and Ebola, and the deaths that would come from both, here and abroad, but figured, why should HE worry about it? He’s not going to get it.
Obama wins…again. (And no, I refuse to congratulate him.)
Since I am considering awards to be rewarded for this contest, I’ve decided since Obama has been on this list more than any other person on the planet, he should receive a special meal by a special chef who will travel all the way from Beijing to serve Obama first prize: a most delicious meal fit for a……
President: Horse’s Dick.
In the meantime, the regular nobodies of the world, figure with Obama in charge, they might as well have a great time before the final shoe drops.
And here’s how some of us are dealing with a President who seems determined to kill us all:
This is a fun watch, because Gene ALWAYS has opinions. What’s even funnier is that for years he didn’t marry his long time mate Shannon, so that he didn’t have to be faithful, and then, when he started hitting the old age, and the young girls didn’t find him appealing anymore, he decided to get married…on TV so that he would make some money.
The advice he gives, he gives from his own perspective that men just think about themselves, the point that feminists have been making for years. Hillary should JUMP on this.
The real problem with women, which Gene forgets, is while men’s hormones rage, so do women’s. The urge to have a child is overbearing, and as a species, it really IS better and healthier to have children when the women is younger….life is just not that easily managed.
I don’t know what women he is talking to here, I am assuming white women, who are already doing just that: NOT having mates and children, and when they do, the government is supporting them.
He seems to give the whole male race a pass on ever growing up.
What is pretty weird about Gene’s opinion’s, is that while it’s good advice and women at this point in time should always earn her own money, because our culture has pretty much thrown marriage as an institution out the window (Unless of course, you are gay)—–Gene is actually suggesting, in his own way to women: use men like men use you.
Realistic? Or just plan stupid? Or is that exactly what’s happening?
What do YOU think?
First: Watch Monica say the words, “Whore, slut, tramp,—- skank…wait.. she left that one out. Good think I remembered to put it back in….I’m sure she just forgot to add it.
She said those words…slowly, savoring each one, to make SURE you remembered those words, and how much they hurt her, and if you don’t think Bill and Hillary have been orchestrating Monika’s reappearance in time, for Hillary’s upcoming Presidential run, and controlling the internet BEFORE that run, then I’d say you probably are having a hell-of-a-life and I, for one, would love to trade places with you.
Methinks Monica protests too much. Speaking as a woman, if she was insulted at all through the whole “Bill Clinton poked Monika” fiasco, it was the fat jokes.
I remember that sweet-doe eyed, perfectly made up, Marilyn Monroe whispering voice Monika during the impeachment proceedings, AFTER the Ken Starr fiasco, when she was interviewed by Barbara Walters. I thought she was one of the most egotistical little rich girls I’d ever seen. She was so obviously smitten with her own beauty…and in HER mind, the most powerful man in the world found HER attractive enough to pork her whenever he could find time in-between cigars, and she was now…famous. It was the most exciting thing that had EVER happened to her.
Everyone now knew…that Monika..was very good at sex.
The little nobody from nowhere became a world-wide goddess…”the other woman.” Famous. Overnight. Who could have dreamed it?
Monika in her own mind, was now one of the most special women in world history. So what if she was a bit fat? Bill obviously LIKED her that way. And she was forever more…famous.
What’s not shown in this video is that she personally attacked the Drudge Report, who broke the story that nobody in the mainstream media had the guts to publish, because, back then, the Clinton’s had all the mainstream CNN, CBS, TIME doing their propaganda.
Monika said in this speech that Drudge was a nobody at the time, and that’s a huge lie. At the time, Drudge was on fire. Everyone was reading Drudge. If he was a nobody, nobody would have even known about it.
No, the real reason we are seeing Monika now, is to be used for Hillary’s elections. The Clinton’s are using Monika to gain ‘sympathy’ for “hate” speech as to what it can do to a country. (Notice she put that in there. )
They want to that be able to censure that damn internet so that Hillary will be able to control what is said about her and Bill right up into the election.
In clear succinct words: They want…PAYBACK:
In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on Internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that Democrats want to regulate online political sites and even news media like the Drudge Report.
Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said.
Ravel’s statement suggests that she would regulate right-leaning groups like America Rising that posts anti-Democrat YouTube videos on its website.
FEC Chairman Lee E. Goodman, a Republican, said if regulation extends that far, then anybody who writes a political blog, runs a politically active news site or even chat room could be regulated. He added that funny internet campaigns like “Obama Girl,” and “Jib Jab” would also face regulations.
“I told you this was coming,” he told Secrets. Earlier this year he warned that Democrats on the panel were gunning for conservative Internet sites like the Drudge Report.
“I cannot imagine a regulatory regime that would put government censors on the Internet daily, culling YouTube video posts for violations of law — nothing short of a Chinese censorship board,” Mr. Goodman said.
And he is right: This is internet censorship. Some of our favorite conservative video guys would be kicked off the net, or pay big fines: Bill Whittle, Z-Natiion, Dinesh D’Souza, FOR THE RECORD, Glenn Beck, Drudge, Wild Bill–all the conservative sites would be monitored.
And now: Cue the lights: We present to you…Monika: Abused by hate speech. Abused by Drudge. Abused, Abused, Abused…Why…she was IN LOVE!
Never mind that Clinton was an even bigger skank for using his power to get ‘blow jobs’ from an intern.
The Clinton’s are very clever: use Bill’s sin to attack conservatives. Blame HIS sins on them. Brilliant.
Instead, she got cushy jobs, and a ticket to Oxford (Do you REALLY think she could have gotten into Oxford without their help?) and now, she is back on the world stage, with voiced lessons, and a lot of speech coaching—- reminding everyone how nobody should ever talk hatred against a Clinton. That’s why she is on a mission…to control speech on the internet forever more.
(Okay, let’s go with skank.) NOTE: That’s right Monika, I still have the right to free speech.
The release of Monika talking about controlling the internet and political speech was to coincide to get the political speeches of conservatives ON the internet…shut down before 2016.
Obama used the IRS shut the tea party down, the Clintons will shut them down on the internet.
Frankly, I think Bill Clinton still has cigars with Monika, and if Hillary gets back into the White House, you can be sure, Monika and Bill will have access again to their favorite spot off the Oval Office.
Typically Liberal: Do the sin, and blame the other guy.
To them, it never gets old, and everybody in the media keeps falling for the same old song and dance.
Just to show how infinite is our stupidity, a few scientists have been warning us, that every 11 years, the Sun has active solar flares. On September the 10, the Sun had the biggest one yet.
It just missed us. Just one big hit, and millions will die…the Walking Dead won’t be on TV anymore, it will be in your backyard.
It would ONLY take a few billion dollars to FIX our electrical grid, but Obama is playing golf. As far as I know, not ONE Congressman is on this.
Ebola looks like a mere hangnail compared to what would happen to us if we got hit with a massive flare.
I know, it’s not EXACTLY my promise of a happy Sunday–so just look at the AMAZING pictures.
Nobody Gets Email
A new twist on an old joke:
(Thanks to JR)
While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator was tragically hit by a car and died. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. “Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.”
“No problem, just let me in,” says the Senator.
“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from the higher-ups. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”
“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.” And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people. They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.
Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises. The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, “Now it’s time to visit heaven…”
So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns. “Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”
The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.”
So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell… Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders. “I don’t understand,” stammers the Senator. “Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”
The devil smiles at him and says, “Yesterday we were campaigning. Today, you voted..”
Think carefully and vote wisely next month!
The democrats aren’t talking about the “issues” anymore, they get their votes from “groups.” Blacks, women, and Illegals. so the FEAR camping is going strong. Republicans are all racists and all belong to the KKK, they beat women and don’t pay them, and they want to arrest and deport ALL illegals.
It’s a simple message and they are sticking to it.
But check out that video. Who knew that Obama won only by FIVE votes? What a coincidence, five votes in every precinct. So, they paid five more people to cast a vote? Some Obama worker didn’t even CARE if that looked suspicious.
BUT WAIT! It’s not just the blacks. The women….need to come out. First they dug out Barbara Streisand, and now, Gloria Steinem to rally the women:
“The outcome of this election will be determined by one factor,” Steinem writes to email recipients of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, “Women.”
Obama and Michelle think it’s the BLACKS that are going to give them that extra five votes…but Gloria says NO! It’s the Women!
Or is it?
This just in:
Could control of the Senate in 2014 be decided by illegal votes cast by non-citizens? Most non-citizens do not register, let alone vote. But enough do that their participation can change the outcome of close races. Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections.
So, it’s the illegals that will give that 5 vote lead in every state.
Which one is correct?
Nobody Cares, it’s all BS.
It’s a pity that our founders are being trashed and forgotten in our schools–so just for fun, here’s some Benjamin Franklin quotes you are NOT likely to see taught anywhere: Each one describes what is happening in America today.
From Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind: 1751
The following things must diminish a nation, VIZ:
(a) The Being Conquered.—- “For the conquerors will engross as many offices, and exact as much tribute or profit on the labor of the conquered , as well maintain them in their new establishments, and this diminishing the subsistence of the natives discourages their marriages, and so gradually diminish them, while the foreigners increase.”
(b) Law of Territory:— “Thus, the Britons, being driven into Wales and crowded to gather in a barren country insufficient to support such great numbers, diminished until the people bore a proportion to the produce, while the Saxons increased on their abandoned lands: until the Island became full of English. And were the English now driven into Wales by some foreign nation, there would in a few years be no more Englishmen in Britain , than there are now people in Wales.”
(c) Loss of Trade:” Manufactures exported draw subsistence from foreign counties for numbers, who are thereby enabled to marry and raise families. If the nation be deprived of any branch of trade, and no new employment is found for the people occupied in that branch, it will also be soon deprived of so many people.”
(d) Loss of food. (I skipped this one it was so obvious.)
(e) Bad Government and Insecure Property.— People not only leave such a country and settling abroad, incorporate with other nations, lose their native language, and become foreigners, but, the industry of those that remain being discouraged, the quantity of subsistence in the country is lessened, and the support of a family becomes more difficult: so heavy taxes tend to diminish a people.
(f) The Introduction of Slaves:—“The Negroes brought into the English sugar islands have greatly diminished the whites there. The poor are by this means deprived of employment, while a few families acquire vast estates, which they spend on foreign luxuries and education their children in the habit of those luxuries. The same income is needed for the support of one that might have maintained 100. “
“In fine, a nation well regulated is like a polyp—take away a limb, its place is soon supplied cut it in two, and each deficient part shall speedily grow out of the part remaining.”
“And since detachments of English from Britain, sent to America , will have their places at home so soon supplied and increase so largely here, why should the Palatine boors be suffered to swarm into our settlements and by herding together, establish their language and manners to the exclusion of ours? Why should Pennsylvania, founded by the English, become a colony of aliens, who will shortly be so numerous as to Germanize us instead of our anglifying, and will never adopt our language or customs any more than they can acquire our complexion? “
“Which leads me to add one remark, that the number of purely white people in the world is proportionally very small. Why increase the sons of Africa by planting them on America, where we have so fair an opportunity, by excluding all blacks and tawnies, of increasing the lovely white and red? But perhaps I am partial to the complexion of my country, for such kind of partial is natural to mankind.” —Ben Franklin
And of course, many would say Ben was a racist by this remark.
But then again…so is Obama. He prefers a black Muslim nation.
If you throw a stone at Ben, you might as well throw one at Barack. Tell me, if what destroys a nation was so obvious to Ben Franklin, why is it not obvious to the men and women in Washington?
I think you know.
