An attempt to share my belief that America needs to reclaim her identity, and that Americans need to reclaim their liberty before it has been completely stolen from us. It will be a long and arduous journey.

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.

Grand Theft Government
Sultan Knish writes another winner at his blog, this time about Saul Alinsky, called Gordon Gekko in Red.
In the article he says,
"Ends as means as a political program makes for something very much like Obama, a moderate veneer over a leftist veneer over a mafia center. First fool the moderates, then fool the left and then make out like a bandit. In practice this means that there are some centrist policies on top, a deeper layer of leftist policies and everything below that is just grand theft government."
I love that phrase, "grand theft government". It is so descriptive of government in general, but especially of the Obama administration. The theft of our rights, the theft of the value of the Constitution, the theft of all of the income which has been taken from us as taxes, the theft of our children's future taken by deficit spending, in the trillions. Money which probably can never be repaid to those from whom it was either stolen or borrowed.
And, as a matter of fact, doubly stolen from all of us who have savings accounts and 401k's. Because the manipulation of our currency that takes place when the government "creates" money out of thin air, adding it to the electronic supply of money the government pretends to possess, causes the value of our dollars to drop. The inflation they cause by writing themselves this "blank check" reduces the value of the money we have saved, in bank accounts and retirement accounts. So it it the direct theft of more of our money.
