Read Stolen History by Frantz Kebreau. Learn the REAL history of the Democrat Party. They’ve been lying to you for decades!
Could it possibly be that the reason conservatives, white and black alike, oppose abortion is because it results in the death of pre-born babies, white and black? If Giles had her way, she would promote abortion among whites to decrease the number of white voters that are the mainstay of the Republican Party.
In reality, it’s liberals that are choosing not to have children. This is a form of voluntary genocide — self-immolation by legal decree and a liberal public policy absolute. At least one very liberal columnist has noticed the demographic problem for liberalism:
“[F]or the past 30 years or so, conservatives — particularly those of the right-wing red-state Christian strain — have been out-breeding liberals by a margin of at least 20 percent, if not far more. . . . Translation: Libs just aren’t procreating like they could/should be.”
Only one response is possible:
It is to our shame that we no longer have men and women of integrity holding elected office in this country. I blame the people themselves, who for reasons beyond my comprehension, always seem to believe they know what is better for me, than I do myself. I blame the voters, who are just as feckless as those they put in office. No man or woman of sound mind, and good sense, would vote for 90% of those in office. I blame the elected officials’ parents, who obviously were uninterested in raising their sons and daughters in the sound principles that founded this once great nation. D.C. values are not American values, and should be shunned with all the might we can muster.
The Threats of a Lame Duck Congress
The lame-duck session begins today, with retiring and defeated Members of Congress coming back to Washington to make their last legislative decisions. Because of the lack of accountability to voters, the lame-duck period brings heightened scrutiny.
Congress has 16 working days scheduled between now and the end of the year, though it could add more. Here are some of the contentious issues likely to be debated—and perhaps even decided—during that time.
The “fiscal cliff.” Thanks to legislation previously put in place, a series of federal spending cuts and tax increases is scheduled to go into effect automatically at the beginning of the year. This is widely referred to as a “fiscal cliff”—and the economy is headed right off the cliff. The tax increases, which have been dubbed “Taxmageddon,” would hit middle-class families with an average tax hike of more than $4,100 in the year 2013 alone. It is the largest tax increase ever to hit America, at nearly $500 billion in one year. The effects would be devastating to the economy, as it would hit job-creating small businesses. With the economy in the state it has been, American businesses and individuals cannot stand a tax increase.
