Michigan Democrats Busted With Counterfeit Tea

Their agenda revealed as a farce, their job-destroying record exposed for all to see, Michigan Democrats were left with nothing but a false flag operation that would make Nixon proud.
Pontiac— Two former high-ranking members of the Oakland County Democratic Party are facing various election corruption charges in a bogus tea party scheme [...]
They face charges related to Independent Tea Party filings, false affidavits and forged documents that occurred between July 23 and July 26 last year.

The charges include felonies that carry up to 14 years in prison. Neither could be reached for comment.(Detroit News)
Liberalism is a Corrupt, Spent Force
Liberalism is an intellectually spent force if all it can come up with as a solution is more government.  Liberals are now firmly ensconced in the uncomfortable position of defending the statist status quo. 

Power is a Centripetal Force

Our system of divided government is not natural.  The arc of human history shows that power is a centripetal force, drawing all to itself.  The Founders set up a system to balance off competing interests and power centers, but the centripetal force has steadily wicked away personal liberty as power naturally accretes to the center.

An Imperial Presidency, An Omnipotent Federal Government
Abraham Lincoln started it.  He saved the Republic and the states lost power to Washington as a result.

Next came Woodrow Wilson, the income tax and the Federal Reserve.  A progressive Supreme Court mistrustful of the people, powered by such intellectual luminaries as Oliver Wendell Holmes ushered in the apotheosis of the imperial presidency in the person of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Lyndon Johnson shook down working people to build a multi-trillion-dollar Great Society, resulting in societal decay, and George Bush II institutionalized the imperial presidency, opening the door for Barack Obama to make rules out of whole cloth and imperiously announce which laws his administration would no longer follow.

We cannot control our borders, we’ve become slack and effeminate, drained of civic virtue, and the sun never sets on our empire as we’re busy fighting other peoples’ wars for them.  Comparisons to Rome are trite, but here we are…

Hope springs eternal, Silver: the American people are seeing the slimy critters scurrying after the rock has been kicked over in Wisconsin.

Our GOP controlled House will lead the way, and the election of 2012 will yet again weed out the RINO's and further strengthen the Rugged Individual yearnings in the people.

Not without a few bumps between now and then, but the pendulum has swung the other way, whereas in Rome, the pendulum just kept going in a really bad direction until there was no more Rome.

I hope your cautiously-tempered optimism is not misplaced, Fredd.

If the GOP can keep their wits about them...

To the ballot fraud case, the slow wheels of justice. We Michiganders knew this would be the case back in Sept./Oct. 2010 but they will end up doing easy time in Federal prison like Monica Conyers at "Camp Cupcake".

To Fredd's statement of "A few bumps", wow that's a huge understatement if I ever heard one with Boehner at the helm of the House.

Ya' know what I would really enjoy, Silver? I would really enjoy a post from you that generally describes the sort of country you espouse. How would it work? Just generally speaking. I would love to see what you would describe.

By the way, you can't say "Well, it's in the Constitution." It's not.

Jersey: The answer is contained within your challenge. You are right that the constitution does not "describe the sort of country" America should be.

It describes the federal government and circumscribes its power. The government has burst its constitutional bounds and is now dictating to all of us just what sort of country this should be, and that is the problem.

Leftist retards do it to themselves eventually, get caught up in their own webs of lies, BS and more lies.

"...and the sun never sets on our empire as we’re busy fighting other peoples’ wars for them."

And what's worse, those who you are fighting on behalf off actually despise you and would shaft you in the throat the second you've won their victory for them.
