What's happening to us?
Monday, by a 5-4 vote, the King County Council passed Ordinance 2013-0285 that will prevent Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) from detaining individuals convicted of a number of
crimeswhose names show up on the Federal Criminal Database. That is, no notification for deportment. The King County Republican Party delivered the statement
(click below) in public testimony Monday at King County Council Meeting of the Whole.
Reagan Dunn and Kathy Lambert were the two Right-on council members who voted against this insanity. Also voting NO were Pete von Reichbauer and Joe McDermott.
The YES votes were from Rod Dembowski, Larry Gossett, Julia Patterson, Larry Phillips, and Jane Hague. What happened to respecting the law?

Obama lied, and your health care plan died...
Bob Schieffer interviews Senator Dianne Feinstein D-CA, and about six minutes into the interview (6:12) the topic turns to Obamacare. Starting at 7:28 in the CBS video, he repeated
Obama's promise that "If you like your health care plan you can keep it" At 7:48 Ms Feinstein said, and this is a quote:
"Well, as I understand it, you can keep it up to the time -- I hope this is correct, but this is what I've been told -- up to the time the bill was enacted.
Then, after that, it's a different story."
Sleep well tonight. Sen. Feinstein heads the Senate Intelligence Committee. God help us all.
The video has been removed from the CBS website, but the transcript of these statements are on page 2, so click here for the CBS Face The Nation Interview
from Senator Mike Lee, R-Utah:
The very best argument against Obamacare is the president's conduct during the first ten days of this shutdown. I mean, look what's happened. The president
is using the vast, immense power of the federal government to hurt the American people. Why? In order to win a political argument. What happens then when we turn over
some of the most private, intimate decisions in our lives -- our health care system -- to the government? When will that be used as a tool against us? We must stop it.
We must defund it. We cannot accept it.

"The change we seek has always required great struggle and great sacrifice." - - Barack Hussein Obama
"The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master."- - - Ayn Rand
Here's the whole quote: It stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there's someone
being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master.
The Fountainhead, 1943.
"The origin and outset of the American Republic, contain lessons of which posterity ought not to be deprived."

What Were They Thinking? The Founders' Thoughts Behind the Constitution
Read The Federalist Papers
"If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.
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

""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."

Here's a link to a great video of the Second Amendment
- as viewed through the THIRD Amendment. Stretch your understanding with this! (It's on You Tube - after the ad watch the crash dummy)
"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.
