A Proposition for a New Conservative Party to Liberate America From the Shackles of Political-Correctness

Thomas Paine (1737-1808)

In 1776, Thomas Paine wrote in his iconic Revolutionary War pamphlet The American Crisis the following:

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but “to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER,” and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.

And indeed, these are troubling times, times which we wish never were and ones where we feel that spring never was eternal and instead, we have lived amid our winter of discontent so long that we cannot recall to the contrary regarding our lives. As Spring bequeaths the Equinox, the sun still appears in free fall, our world of order now mired in an unprecedented state of existential entropy. America has lost all political dynamics once ideologically-partitioning Democrats and Republicans. The American Gothic comprised of farmers, poets and sailors were once free to answer what it is to be an American. Now, we no longer are.

Emma Lazarus (1849-1887), American Jewish poet most famous for “The American Colossus”

In 1883, Emma Lazarus (1849-89) penned a patriotic sonnet for the ages. In evoking the earliest founders of British America, she inscribed the follow:

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

And indeed, Ellis Island as with Jamestown and Plymouth was the golden door for the homeless, tempest-tost huddled masses of a storied ancient land sullied by the storied pomp.

The left-wing fringe claimed victory of the culture war before the first shot was fired. It needed only to intimidate by threat of legal coercion, physical violence and through like-minded federal courts willing to end the debate without so much as the right to a true appeal for fairness. The First Amendment theoretically protects free speech, but this only applies to government’s role in which dissent cannot be silenced. The media — the Democrats’ cover of Pravda, only owned almost entirely by wealthy entrepreneurs — has free rein over the flow of news because again, government cannot censor what is reported legally. Yet the Obama FCC twice since 2013 attempted to cripple Fox News for its audacity to oppose his vast armada of far left spin doctors by covering what other mediums refuse in deference to the president. And because Fox News’ intrepidity has led to trouncing its competition both on cable and the “big three” nightly news programs, Democrats seek to destroy it, alongside Rush Limbaugh and others in radio or small publications like the Daily Caller, National Review and the Weekly Standard. Socialism will never tolerate opposition to its dictation of totalitarian rape polity. The party of the ass now mirroring Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist Party (Nazis) engages opponents as would any dominatrix in latex with a whip, with their victims in bondage.

Like many women of the submission and domination fetish communities, militant feminists today employ humiliation tactics in sexualizing their platform while none in opposition have right to publicly acknowledge what they promote: social rape through political harlotry. To call such vile specimens “Femi-Nazis” is not only subject to public condemnation and ostracism, but lawsuits and even arrest despite the Women’s Liberation platitude evocative of Margaret Sanger’s direct ties to Adolf Hitler. The truth is incontrovertible, yet leads to psychotic reactions from the entire collectivist cult emasculating men while “womyn” become what they hate so much: the most masculine “men” I have ever see. And what a shame such harlots pretend they are men, styling their hair and donning the same clothes once part of reversed gender roles when the nuclear family unit they aided in destroying led to the present Oliver Twist syndrome growing more populated by the orphans of state-enabled parental derelicts.

Frequently I read where the militant black power revival, endorsed by the false prophets Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, wants to slaughter random police officers and engage in the genocide of white Americans beginning with Fox Business Network’s Charles V. Payne’s startling declaration of universal reparations for their present “condition” due to my ancestors — among whom was Sam Houston, former governor of Tennessee and Texas and founder of the Lone Star Republic — position as slaveholders in 2016.  Few grasp in light of the media ignoring such stories how it would ruin their agenda, that the Department of Agriculture provided the New Black Panthers EBT Cards which they attempted to use to purchase bomb-making supplies in St. Louis to detonate at the Gateway Arch, only for the card, like the Democrat black supremacist president, maxed out with no intention of repaying the taxpayers’ money.

The New Black Panthers are tied to Islamic terrorism in Palestinian territories and the Muslim Brotherhood, as is the Organization for Black Struggle. The socially-dysgenic Nation of Islam cleric Louis Farrakhan, who admitted 15 years ago he contributed to the assassination of Malcolm X, publicly pledged during one of his sermons to “tear this goddamn country apart” because of Officer Darren Wilson’s last resort to self-defense against psychotic stoner Michael Brown.

How ironic Planned Parenthood joined the demonstrations in Ferguson when their business is dependent on ensuring the racism of militant feminists’ licentious deportment can include innocent black babies in harmony with eugenics policies Obamacare intends to implement in the major inner-cities.

They care not in the least black lives matter. They are too busy cutting out the middleman who would deny them profit from blood money in their quest for a global matriarchy. In the case of one radical feminist called the “Femitheist”, she advocates exterminating 90 percent of the global male population.

And what of the LGBT push to rape straight Christians of their dignity by denying them the liberty to the free exercise of their faith that does not approve of same-sex marriage? I once said to my father that as soon as the U.S. Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage as civil unions had been in place for some time, they would attack churches — and they are, including employing the tolerant tactic of physically threatening the lives of small business owners refusing to bake wedding cakes in invoking the following from Scripture.

2 Thessalonians 3:6
“Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother that walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.”   

Romans 1:25-27
“They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator– who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.”  

Romans 13:8-10
“Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.”   

Romans 5:13   
“For sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law.”   

Romans 3:20
“For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.”  

How indeed LGBT militants not only deny the existence of my Father, but are overwhelmingly antichrists through their distrust for churches teaching what is written in Scripture and not what their carnal desires leading others to rape demand. And while a collection of pastors who could easily be linked to Westboro Baptist Church calling for “gay execution” laws, the rise of this sentiment and their actions in Indiana are incontrovertible, supported by leftists, even the federal government in the name of “social justice”. Free enterprise, however, is lost on such driftwood. They fully intend to push nationalizing all industries in the private sector. So tolerant are Nazi liberals that in fact, Dan Savage invited Dr. Ben Carson to “suck [his] dick” for his trouble of stating straight men in prison often become gay following gang rapes in showers.

Dan Savage is a Democrat. Democrats now support pedophilia, slavery, human trafficking and child prostitution, cite pedophiles should be granted all the legal entitlements as the LGBT community now exploit from straight Christians, wanting to steal their babies. Let us never forget Democrats openly advocate rape, another situation they tie to medical science given Bill Clinton and Alan Dershowitz made it “cool”. And as Mr. Savage demanded Dr. Carson “[suck his] dick”, that in itself is a command to submit to rape or face punitive media ostracism for his refusal to enjoy it. Apparently Mr. Savage, who always says a mouthful with his vile, skilled oral dictation, thinks if Dr. Carson spontaneously laughs, he will not have raped him. The irony is how Mr. Savage, in demanding a medical doctor “[suck my] dick”, actually debunked the myth homosexuality is never a choice given he applied his erect penis as the LGBT emblem supportive of the same activity they ironically hate from random Catholic clergy, yet demand a universal lovefest for the bathhouse culture. If a gay man is “naturally” forced to “rape”straight adults and small defenseless children, we must protect the victim, the gay rapist, from children, the source of their erections.

At least Mr. Savage admits his preferred position in homosexual rape and likely pedophila, but unlike Dr. Carson or his neighborhood’s children, he will always shield himself behind his homosexuality to silence his opposition. He wants me and others dead for voting for Republicans.. The theater of the absurd as Obama’s “anti-bullying czar” is clearly not for him as he stated his intent to see to it straight Christian conservatives take the high hard one. Apparently, Mr. Savage would have no qualms engaging in illicit libertinism with the long lost old friend of Democrats, Jim Crow, only redressing him as the cinematic slave Casanova, Mandingo, so hopelessly shackled is the black community given Democrats’ latent admission “nature” has denied them genetic fitness to compete now with horrible “cookie cutter” Asians in academia. Nazi liberal officials in California now warn blacks and Hispanics about such a trend and are seemingly preparing modern interment camps.

Now to the Muslim community — where should I begin but with my recently-derived quip, “Taqiyya will get my head cut off”? ISIS is Islam; it is a fringe known as takfirism where like Muhammad, takfirists declare other Muslims apostates for failing to meet their puritanical standards of worshipping Allah, executing those in opposition. Takfir wal Hijra is a similar cell born of the Muslim Brotherhood over 50 years ago in Egypt. Quoting the Qur’an to Muslims is met by vile opposition, then declaring “it is not what it reads; you are misinterpreting its meaning”. But not one Muslim denies Muhammad’s position with respect to women and children, again supportive of the same Nazi liberal position of the Democratic Party. How many times can I count catching Muslims in lies, where one did not appear to know the Qur’an’s Arabic name for Jesus (“Isa”) while another argued my misinterpretation of the Qur’an, then supported Hamas’ terrorism in the Holy Land and declared Christians cannot justify opposing persecution nor fight wars for survival? Rather than advocating action against ISIS, they tell kafirs to not agitate terrorists because they will commit far worse atrocities, almost as if they are in a silent state of euphoria. Such latent support of terrorism through blatant appeasement led Hitler to fleece British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain at Munich in 1938 in demonstrating the Nazi position for “peace in their time” by the invasion of Poland one year later.

Across Tennessee in Memphis, Imam Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi was recently recorded preaching “Jews and Christians are filthy, their lives and property can be taken in jihad by the Muslims.” But his record is not exclusive to this.

“… part of Yasir Qadhi’s preaching includes rhetoric that says non-Muslims lives are forfeit and their property is legal for Muslims to take in jihad, (and this would include women as sex slaves)… Yasir Qadhi is not only a Memphil [sic] Imam, but is is also the Dean of Academic Affairs at the Al-Maghrib Institute. He is a hafiz (has memorized the Qur’an) and he has an M.A. in the Islamic Creed and a B.A. in Islamic Sciences from Islamic University of Medina, as well as a master’s and a doctorate in Islamic Studies from Yale. During a lecture on Shirk, or polytheism, Yasir Qadhi said that Jews and Christians are mushrikoon, or polytheists, because they have made partners with Allah. From Yasir Qadhi’s perspective, only Muslims are monotheists…“And it is because of this same principle of monotheism that the prophet has been commanded to do jihad,”… While “jihad is not the goal”, Qadhi says, “it is the means. It is a means to establish monotheism on the land,”.

To continue being enslaved by political correctness will mean not just the death of the republic, but our culture, our right to worship and lastly, the right to own property or live. We must never fear to see what is immediately before us. If we continue to, we will fall the hardest as the prey to our self-denial as free adults and our children, raped by Democrat-support for pedophilia without so much as a legal whimper.

We do not want a state downtrodden by perpetual class warfare to be emblematic of racial tensions, soaring income discrepancies due to the wealthy growing more so through tax breaks and exemptions at the expense of the middle class and poorest Americans growing far poorer to the point of synonymy. Such a path is not one conducive to growth, but rather a predatory model for casino economic policies creating financial and technology bubbles portending recessions and massive layoffs. Through the Federal Reserve, monetarism has debased the coinage through quantitative easing, with no weighted monetary value, resulting in fluctuations of inflation as demands soon arise for higher and more dangerous increases of a minimum wage, or what socialism refers to as a living wage. This model is unsustainable; prior to the rise of Woodrow Wilson in the Election of 1912, no meaningful measure for inflation was necessary because federal deficits remained low even as the dollar typically deflated. It is why Thomas Jefferson virulently opposed centralized banking monetizing the currency through artificial economies of scale, and how for the past century, the Federal Reserve yielded a dollar-based standard worth roughly five cents its 1913 value as debt soars unabated due to soaring interest rates:

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay it’s own debts as it goes. a principle which, if acted on, wou [ld] save one half the wars of the world; and justifies, I think our present circumspection.”
— Thomas Jefferson to to Antoine Louis Claude Destutt de Tracy. Charlottesville, VA, 26 December 1820

Government is far too large, too expansionist and furthermore. “No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size,” said Ronald Reagan during his entry into the world of national politics in 1964, “A Time for Choosing“, “Government programs,” he asserted, “once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this Earth.” But once eternity dies, the sunset results in insurmountable hyperinflation to compound that debt, creating a vacuum and a rise of a post-capitalist world, a return to serfdom and finally, a state of nil — where no land is your land; no land is my land, and there will be no California nor a New York island to preserve we would recognize. Freedom will no longer exist, and as no civil society will continue to ensue, a select elite will govern through their infinite consolidation of resources what you and I once were at liberty to earn.

The more the state grows, that metastasis engulfs the life force of the American Dream: free enterprise, capitalism through the opportunity at entrepreneurship, investments where the talents and initiative of the individual are confiscated by obscene direct measures for taxation and alarming growth in service sector conglomerates into monopolies, militant labor and trade unions. The Democratic Party sells its product well, for all it needs to do is play off the poor versus the rest of the world which left them behind to feed off its dust. Sadly, the most obscene examples of morbid poverty reside in the slums and tenements of major urban areas where their condition is subsidized until they meet early graves, as welfare is never altered at the same rates of change as how monetary supply inflates or deflate. Health care initiatives prior to Obamacare were once the best among all nations, though never accredited as such by the United Nations (UN) and its subsidiary international medical regulatory apparatus, the World Health Organization (WHO). While America’s medical system was once the envy of Canadian civilians who would drive south of the border to receive first rate care based upon the market share of their needs with far less in wait times, the United Kingdom revealed just two years ago the indignity of the average National Health Service (NHS) patient 45 percent more likely to die from neglect, including time waiting for care than in the U.S. What Sarah Palin warned us more than six years ago about death panels has now grown into a systemic plague that includes massive surplus budgets for the Department of Veterans Affairs, but a record number of our veterans dying due to intentional neglect in VA Hospitals. While Americans who once could afford through their employers to purchase quality private health care coverage on a market scale even as the poor had the opportunity to receive either Medicaid or to be well-provided with extraordinarily inexpensive and even voluntary private donations in an unprecedented show of global altruism, today, these traits for what makes for a good American are not only discouraged, but outlawed. When Obamacare was created under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), it was not merely intended to provide an ostensible platform for predatory taxes through the back door at the expense of the average civilian having any access at all to readily-available care, but to maintaining a consolidated compilation of all Americans individual tax records and background checks available at any hospital. The goal is to achieve the total abolition of voluntary care at liberty’s expense for compulsory human freedom by the force to be liberated of all independence on one’s own person and absolute dependence on the state and peer taxpayers. Taxation in the 21st Century is far more pernicious to the preservation of America’s historical commitment to the sanctity of liberty and human freedom not because it creates cost inhibitive pricing once government engulfs private industry and free enterprise, but rather due to it has become the means to the end of Uncle Sam’s nephew Big Brother serving as the state’s eyes and ears of its perversion of the clandestine peeping Tom.

In 1787, the new Constitution of the United States of America was completed and issued for distribution and ratification. On the first day of the summer of 1788 (June 21), New Hampshire ratified the document as the ninth and final minimum required state. On March 4, 1789, the new and current federal government of the United States was launched, its capital in New York City and our collection of some of America’s most brilliant minds to set the standards for precedents yet to be. Government was far smaller 225 years ago, but was racked with the burden of a massive debt from the war for independence. Birthed from this conflict in how best to pay down this debt was our First Political Party system waged between the Hamiltonians of the Federalist Party (led by Alexander Hamilton) and the Democratic-Republicans under Thomas Jefferson (Jeffersonians). The debate was whether to create a centralized bank or to oppose, and Hamilton, the Treasury Secretary, championed a central bank. Jefferson feared the rise of such an imposing monolith in government in that it would manufacture a goliath establishment superseding the sovereignty of the people, and as is true today, the core of government’s functions and the very litmus test for the democratic process is state control of our currency’s flow through monetizing and purchasing an indefinite and unchecked quantity of bonds and securities. Today, as Jefferson feared, the Federal Reserve is the largest source of our federal debt, more than double what America owes the People’s Republic of China in terms of our total trade deficit.

The Federalists consolidated the central government’s power through corruption. In passing the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798, the controversy arose from the pens of Jefferson and his protege and successor as president James Madison’s Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions the nullification crisis, which eventually led to civil war. To speak against the federal government during the Quasi War with France subjected the American people to imprisonment and their revocation of habeas corpus. The unintended consequence was indeed civil war; it also provided grounds for future debates on states’ rights which have piqued a new interest concerning the most fundamental archetype of popular sovereignty. And today in the 21st Century, not since the Civil War have the American people sought to reclaim our country and national sovereignty, our authority as the electorate and the general will who tells government what to do and not the other way around. The buck stops with us; we can fire our elected governors when they engage in policies poorly conceived. We can submit to Barack Obama’s plantation as exist in large urban areas or resist through first, peaceful conscientious objection and as the last resort, with violence should the militarization of law enforcement and our armed forces seek to subdue us.

The Constitution enables the lone concrete measure for the rights of America’s states to topple a tyrannical national government. It is our light switch to turn on when the sun threatens to set on the great American experiment in democratic republicanism.

The United States Supreme Court today serves not as a court for legal interpretation, but rather as a third federal legislative body engaging in judicial activism, not originalism of constitutional legal content. Today, it subverts the rule of law created by legislators, in lieu of imposing a panel of nine justices’ de facto common law statutes. Many laws are not at all legal, but rather rulings of precedent with no concrete merit. The High Court in concert with our own Congress have circumvented the general will of We the People. The buck now lies upon Harry Truman’s successors’ desk, and in the case of Barack Obama, under constant scribbling from his pen as he is calling his hitmen on the phone. And while Obama continues to reach out to get in touch with his mob supporters and labor bosses, he is not getting in touch with the most important someones – you, me and the rest of America, those of us among the farmers, poets and sailors residing on Main Street, U.S.A. He has engaged in the final coup d’etat against his employers, We the People.

For Sen. John McCain, he is only considered right-wing from the perspective he demands to shoot first and ask questions only if the enemy happens to survive; he continues to favor many of the president’s positions regarding amnesty and is at times most ambiguous regarding the economy as his being a self-proclaimed maverick due to crossing party lines in full support of the Democrats. Mitch McConnell is just the same, but even more mired in ambiguity just in what he plans to do regarding Obamacare. As for John Boehner, well, he is a just a tear away from asking for my forgiveness for his support of the president. Paul Ryan has drafted budgets calling for the failed Eurozone policy of austerity in an attempt to pay down the debt while employing the Obama hikes in taxation.

Few establishment GOP politicians are very vocal regarding the abortion controversy, Second Amendment rights, rights to privacy as inferred by the Fourth Amendment and even the First Amendment. They are no longer the party of Ronald Reagan, who himself battled uphill many of these same politicians who either were in office in the 1970s and 1980s or like with Lamar Alexander’s great influence, Howard Baker (both of whom are from Tennessee), did little to support the president’s cut in welfare spending through the implementation of supply-side economics to create jobs and, through record numbers of taxpayers footing their fair share, lead to more wealth to pay for those who are invalid or down on their luck.

Perhaps no president since Ronald Reagan has enjoyed so profound an impact on the American stream of consciousness as Barack Obama. While Reagan resurrected the phenomenon of a nation laden in Middle American Judeo-Christian, common sense ethos and values and principles in application to real life, Obama has succeeded in devolving our shining city upon a hill into an amoral state advocating Satanism and Islam, atheism and his own cult following among most Democrats while Christians and Jews face the inevitable legal end to the right to practice their faith. Racial divisions today are worse than during the Jim Crow era, also created by the very same Democratic Party which today declares the black community and Hispanics too dumb and unsophisticated to vote for anything else that they cannot be fed lines of mularkey. What the Democrats created in terms of a political machine dominating the national polity for more than 80 years has metastasized into the threat that all democracy in America will end and global warfare through Obama’s machinations poised to break out at anytime. Guiltiest of all is the GOP as a whole. Those who are elected out of the Tea Party have no true power, but are still members who happen to be Republicans who have no choice but to be collectivized in the cross hairs of its own political impotence.

Gallup recently released a poll with the not too shocking result that 58 percent of Americans believe a strong third party is necessary to restore democracy to the republic. Researchers from Princeton and Northwestern Universities determined that America is no longer a democratic state, but today one ruled by an oligarchy. President Obama wants to cede more of the American people’s sovereignty to the United Nations (UN) through gun confiscation and climate change treaties that are not only unpopular here, but also are issues which have been debunked as counterproductive to what they address since neither are problematic today. Detroit city officials, in a state of panic in the aftermath of declaring bankruptcy, are receiving water and humanitarian aid supplies from Canada and have considered calling upon the UN for more of the same. Along our borders as the president continues to permit the daily deluge of thousands of illegal immigrants who are gang members, drug lords and Islamic terrorists to cross, the humanitarian crisis is now so enormous that the UN ostensibly is calling upon the president to declare each illegal immigrant crossing over to be refugees, which then presents the opportunity for the international regulatory body to commandeer our southern borders and, for all intents and purposes, to cede America’s sovereignty through the backdoor to the international community away from those who elected the man who unilaterally will have granted this illegally. The trend of taxation and public expenditures have grown to alarming levels for concern as interest rates are at 0.25 percent and inflation, -0.1 percent while debt is more than 100 percent of total GDP, meaning the federal government now is losing money, not even drawing any form for revenue or profit from the taxpayer. The danger America faces if it follows the Eurozone’s policy of implementing a negative interest rate while continuing with quantitative easing to deflate our coinage is far more dangerous than what the world faced during stagflation. This will lead to the eventual hyperinflation of the global monetary supply, as paper currency will simply be printed at record totals not seen in the West since Weimar Germany during the 1920s as it attempted to pay out from beneath its obligation issued under French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau all debts through the Treaty of Versailles’ War Guilt Clause. Hyperinflation in Germany during the 1920s led to the rise of the obscure Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler as dictator following the Reichstag fire in 1933 and, later, the second world war, the most destructive in human history. As nearly 93 million Americans are now out of the workforce, a retreading of William Shakespeare’s famous line from Richard III is most applicable – Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this sun of the Serengeti.

With every demand to raise the debt ceiling by the Democrats and President Obama, the GOP not only submits, it debates over how much, not if. The rate of taxation not only was raised for the top wage earners, it was hiked at far more damaging levels for the middle and sub-poverty line income brackets. Even Americans in theory who do not earn an income are taxed 10 percent, while the difference in taxed incomes for the rich at 39.6 percent is to compare it to the lowest middle income bracket at 25 percent, and the problems with Obamacare and the obligatory Social Security and Medicare taxes are not included. Confiscatory taxation, therein, has harmed the poorest 90 percent. To double the minimum wage will only hurt the poorest 90 percent, while creating more wealth for the wealthy who will simply lay off employees they consider too expensive to keep and are expendable in their eyes.

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), sixteenth president of the United States

If America is to avoid its final curtain call, the following warning by Abraham Lincoln from “The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions: Address Before the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois” January 27, 1838 must be heeded in its entirety:

“All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”
