Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on
an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated
upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the
English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS
Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person. Romney gave the homeless person his business card and told him to
come to his office for a job. He then took $20 out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.
Hillary was very impressed. So, when they came to another homeless person, she decided to help as well. She walked over to the homeless person and gave him
directions to the welfare office. She then reached into Romney's pocket and got out $20. She kept $15 for her administrative fees and gave the homeless person $5.
Now, do you understand the difference?

My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition
it faced early on, you know... the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the
bigger picture, and we didn't do that, and I'm proud of that. Very proud. I would say that's a major accomplishment."

ODE TO THE WELFARE STATE
Mr. Truman's St. Paul, Minn., pie-for-everybody speech last night
reminded us that, at the tail-end of the recent session of Congress,
Representative Clarence J. Brown (R-Ohio) jammed into the
Congressional Record the following poem, describing its author only as
"a prominent Democrat of the State of Georgia":
Father, must I go to work?
No, my lucky son.
We're living now on Easy Street
On dough from Washington.
We've left it up to Uncle Sam,
So don't get exercised.
Nobody has to give a damn--
We've all been subsidized.
But if Sam treats us all so well
And feeds us milk and honey,
Please, daddy, tell me what the hell
He's going to use for money.
Don't worry, bub, there's not a hitch
In this here noble plan--
He simply soaks the filthy rich
And helps the common man.
But, father, won't there come a time
When they run out of cash
And we have left them not a dime
When things will go to smash?
My faith in you is shrinking, son,
You nosy little brat;
You do too damn much thinking, son,
To be a Democrat.

As promised, the Election Stuff:
From the pooled caucuses on Feb 20th, 254 Delegates have been elected to attend the 5th District Caucus April 2nd and the KCGOP Convention April 16th. On April 2nd,
41 Delegates were elected to attend the State Convention. The 41 from the 5th LD are part of 1500 who attend the state convention in Pasco.
There are 346 Delegates from all LDs in King County going to State, plus a few automatic ones, like the KC Chair, State Committeeman, State Committeewomen, etc.,
making a total of 354.
What should be simple, gets complicated: At the State Convention, 44 Delegates will be elected to go to the national RNC Convention in Cleveland:
30 of these are CONGRESSIONAL delegates. -- three from each of 10 CDs. Washington's CD Delegates will be allocated proportionally; a candidate must win at least 20
percent of the primary vote within a district in order to be eligible to receive any of that district's delegates. If a candidate wins more than 50 percent of the
district vote, he or she will receive all of that district's delegates. If only one candidates breaks the 20 percent threshold, that candidate will receive all of
the district's delegates. If two candidates each win more than 20 percent of the district vote, the first place finisher will receive two of the district's delegates,
and the second place finisher will receive one. If three candidates each receive more than 20 percent of the district vote, each candidate will receive one of the
district's delegates. If four candidates each win more than 20 percent of the district vote, the top three finishers will each receive one delegate.
11 are at-large delegates -- Washington's at-large delegates will be allocated on a proportional basis; a candidate must win at least 20 percent of the statewide
primary vote in order to be eligible to receive any of the state's at-large delegates.
Three super-delegates In addition, three national party leaders will serve as bound delegates to the Republican National Convention. These are the WSRP Chair,
Susan Hutchinson, and the State Committeeman and State Committeewoman. These RNC delegates will be required to pledge their support to the winner of the state's
primary. This is on the first ballot only. After that, anything's possible.
2472 delegates from around the country will attend the RNC Convention in Cleveland--
it takes a majority,
1237, to secure the nomination.

In May of 1919 at Dusseldorf, Germany,
the Allied Forces obtained a copy of the Communist Rules for Revolution. Fifty years later the Reds are still following these rules.
A. Corrupt the young, get them away from religion, get them interested in sex. Make them superficial, destroy their ruggedness.
B. Get control of all means of publicity thereby:
1. Get the people's minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books and plays and other trivialities.
2. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.
3.Destroy the people's faith in their natural leaders by holding the latter up to contempt, ridicule and obloquy.
[obloquy=the condition of one that is discredited; bad repute]
4. Always preach true democracy, but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.
5. By encouraging government extravagance, destroy its credit, produce fear of inflation with rising prices and general discontent.
6. Foment unnecessary strikes in vital industries; encourage civil disorders and foster lenient and soft attitude on the part of government toward such disorders.
7. By specious argument, cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues, honesty, sobriety, confidence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.
C. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext, with a view toward confiscating them and leaving the population helpless.

The Philosophy of ISIS:
In-depth report from Graeme Wood / The Atlantic
What the Left thinks: Just what is a "Progressive?"
Larry Arnn, President of Hillsdale College nails it
in this excerpt from the Dec 2014 issue of Imprimus:
The left and some on the right, in both political parties in America, have styled themselves "progressive" for more than 100 years. Progress to them is a
process of history. In that process, people and peoples are transformed and can be elevated. Time and circumstance define the being of man and of everything else.
This process of social evolution makes our grandest universal statements in any time not really universal, but merely products of their own time. When the Declaration
of Independence says, "all men are created equal," it understands itself to be asserting an abiding and universal fact. When it appeals to the "Laws of Nature and
of Nature's God," it refers to laws above the authority of man and continuing without fail through all time and everywhere. Progressives understand such laws as only
time-bound assertions, the product of prevailing circumstances. Early Progressives were fond of saying that those universal assertions were good things for their time,
and history was made better for them, even though they were wrong at the time in their claims of being universal. They can have permanence, by this way of thinking,
only if they can assume new meanings as new circumstances arise.
For Progressives, we discover the real truth about these matters by a certain kind of scientific inquiry, an inquiry into history. And once we begin that inquiry,
it becomes sovereign. If everything is to change, and we are simply creatures of that change, we can win our freedom by taking control of the process of change.
Guided by highly-trained people, scientists and social scientists, we can direct the society to become a new society, its people a new people. The work of these
scientific people is very important, perhaps even sovereign. They have a standing independent of the will of the governed, previously thought self-governing by
nature. These scientists are the makers of the future, and in making the future the people are the subject of their experiments.
Since the wave election last month, we have been treated to videos of Professor John Gruber, an MIT social scientist. He has been dining out since 2010 on his
experience as one of the "architects of Obamacare." He was paid, at last count, $400,000 by the federal government, and something over $1.5 million by several
state governments in aggregate to practice his architecture. Now he is on video telling the story. The architects of Obamacare figured out that if they described
the health care law as it was, the American people would not go for it. They are "stupid," in Professor Gruber's estimation. They are stupid at least in this respect:
If the complex bill could be called something other than it was, then the bill could pass and people could be introduced to its wonders. They would be able to enjoy
those wonders only through experience, as they lacked the intelligence to figure it out in advance.
Dr. Gruber apologized when the initial video appeared, but since then several other videos have surfaced that show him saying the same thing on other occasions.
This means that conversations like the ones he describes were going on among many people, apparently one of them in the White House with President Obama, at the
time of the bill's passage. And the videos of his speeches mean that there are many people, generally highly educated people, who enjoy stories like this, pay Mr.
Gruber when he tells them, and respect him for his achievement. To these people, the passage of Obamacare is apparently a delightful episode in American history.

If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over
men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself."
James Madison, Federalist #51
Written between October 1787 and August 1788, The Federalist Papers is a collection of newspaper essays written in defense of the Constitution. Writing
under the penname Publius, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay explain the merits of the proposed Constitution, while confronting objections
raised by its opponents. Thomas Jefferson described the work as "the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written."

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier
to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgement to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man
for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools
should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude
of fools such as those who made him their president."

Plumbing analogy to Obamacare:
Only weeks after leaving office on January 20, 2017, former President Barack Obama discovered a leak under his sink, so he called Troy the Plumber to come out
and fix it.
Troy drove to President Obama's new house, which is located in a very exclusive, gated community near Chicago, where all the residents have a net income of way
more than $250,000 per year.
Troy arrived and took his tools into the house. He was led to the guest bathroom that contained the leaky pipe under the sink. Troy assessed the problem and told
Obama that it was an easy repair & that will take less than 10 minutes. Obama asked Troy how much it will cost. Troy checked his rate chart and said, "$9,500."
"What?! $9,500?!" Obama asked, stunned, "But you said it's an easy repair. Michelle will whip me if I pay a plumber that much!"
Troy said, "Yes, but what I do is charge those who make more than $250,000 per year a much higher amount so I can fix the plumbing of poorer people for free. This
has always been my philosophy. As a matter of fact, I lobbied the Democrat Congress, who passed this philosophy into law. Now all plumbers must do business this
way. It's known as the 'Affordable Plumbing Act of 2014'. I'm surprised you haven't heard of it."
In spite of that, Obama told Troy there's no way he's paying that much for a small plumbing repair, so Troy left. Obama spent the next hour flipping through the
phone book calling for another plumber, but he found that all other plumbing businesses in the area have gone out of business. Not wanting to pay Troy's price,
Obama does nothing and the leak goes un-repaired for several more days. A week later the leak is so bad President Obama has had to put a bucket under the sink.
Michelle is not happy as she had Oprah and guests arriving the next morning. The bucket filled up quickly and had to be emptied every hour, and there was a risk
the room will flood, so Obama called Troy and pleaded with him to return.
Troy went back to Obama's house, looked at the leaky pipe, checked his new rate chart and said, "Let's see, this will now cost you $21,000."
Obama quickly fired back, "What? A few days ago you told me it would cost $9,500!"
Troy explained, "Well, because of the 'Affordable Plumbing Act,' a lot of wealthier people are learning how to maintain and take care of their own plumbing, so
there are fewer payers in the plumbing exchanges. As a result, the price I have to charge wealthy people like you keeps rising. Not only that, but for some
reason the demand for plumbing work by those who get it for free has skyrocketed! There's a long waiting list of those who need repairs, but the amount we get
doesn't cover our costs, especially paperwork and record-keeping. This unfortunately has put a lot of my fellow plumbers out of business, they're not being
replaced, and nobody is going into the plumbing business because they know they can't make any money at it. I'm hurting too, all thanks to greedy rich people
like you who won't pay their 'fair share'. On the other hand, why didn't you buy plumbing insurance last December? If you had bought plumbing insurance available
under the 'Affordable Plumbing Act,' all this would have been covered by your policy."
"You mean I wouldn't have to pay anything to have you fix my plumbing problem?" asks Obama.
"Well, not exactly," replied Troy. "You would have had to buy the insurance before the deadline, which has passed now. And, because you're rich, you would have had
to pay $34,000 in premiums, which would have given you a 'silver' plan, and then, since this would have been your first repair, you would have to pay up to the
$21,000 deductible, and anything over that would have a $7,500 co-pay, and then there's the mandatory maintenance program, which is covered up to 17.5%, so there
are some costs involved. Nothing is for free."
"WHAT?!" exclaimed Obama. "Why so much for a puny sink leak?!"
With a bland look, Troy replied, "Well, paperwork, mostly, like I said. And the internal cost of the program itself. You don't think a program of this complexity
and scope can run itself, do you? Besides, there are millions of folks with lower incomes than you, even many in the 'middle class', who qualify for subsidies
that people like you must support. That's why they call it the 'Affordable Plumbing Act'! Only people who don't make much money can afford it. If you want
affordable plumbing, you'll have to give away most of what you have accumulated and cut your and Michelle's income by about 90%. Then you can qualify to GET
your 'Fair Share' instead of GIVING it."
"But who would pass a crazy act like the 'Affordable Plumbing Act'?!" exclaimed the exasperated Obama.
After a sigh, Troy replied, "Congress ... because they didn't read it."
This will help you understand Obamacare .... And here you have it, the 'Affordable Plumbing Act of 2014'. What a marvelous explanation this is, although somebody

LIFE IS LIKE A COIN.
You can choose to spend it any way you wish,
But you can only spend it once.
"Democracy tends to ignore, even deny, threats to its existence because it loathes doing what is needed to counter them. It awakens only when the danger
becomes deadly, imminent, evident. By then, either there is too little time left for it to save itself, or the price of survival has become crushingly high."
Jean-Francois Revel - (1924-2006) French politician, journalist, author, philosopher
