In 1895, long before the Great Society, long before the New Deal and over a decade before the 16th Amendment established the progressive income tax H.G. Wells wrote the science fiction novella, the “Time Machine” that portrayed a futuristic society where the human race had evolved into two species, where one still resembled the humans we know and the other survived because they preyed upon them. Most people who read the novella were entranced over the concept of time travel and since that year countless stories, films and scientific articles have embraced and embellished on the theory.
From the moment I read the story I recognized elements that bore a striking resemblance to the reality of our times. Before Medicare and Medicaid existed, when SS was a relatively benign economic liability, before the fatherless matriarchal family became institutionalized, before home relief, food stamps, unemployment, public housing and a myriad menu of other entitlements had been conceived to become ubiquitous America was showing symptoms of an internal threat as significant as any conceivable military scenario. America was clearly advancing into two economic fractions as divergent in their beliefs as two countries speaking two different languages and who share completely different values. It is not the Capulet’s vs. the Montague’s, the Hatfield’s vs. the McCoy’s, or the Jets vs. the Sharks. It is the Capitalists vs. the Socialists and this President is the leader of the latter camp.
Despite the best political philosophers from Aristotle thru Locke, upon which we have based our Founding Principles, our civilization, our concepts of capitalism and free markets, our individual rights to own and use property has arisen a new slavery where a democracy allows millions to applaud the transfer of property from those who morally earned it though earnest effort to those who legally get to steal it.
Obama is not just about sharing the wealth; he is not even about compassion for those that really could use charity; he is not about fairness; he is not about equality under the law. He is about a passionate dislike for those that achieve success and therefore will never be about creating wealth. At a time when we need Reaganesque leadership anew, a fast and furious return to economic principles that are based upon the Laws of Nature that define how humans as a species best survive, the country is driven at an unbelievable velocity in exactly the same direction as southern Europe under the grandiose idea that more of what is wrong for them is actually what will be good for us.
H.G. Wells wrote a fictional story that also depicts a reality. Therefore the story does not have to be fictional. All you have to do is remove the time machine and reconnoiter through the last century, top it off with three and a half years of the Obama Administration plus an additional four more years of the same policies to realize that liberty can be lost in less than the span of one lifetime. Ask yourself; In Obama’s fundamentally changed America what part of H.G. Well’s novella best represents the life that your children will experience? You only have two choices.

Mark Levin Gives Unvarnished Truth
MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.
We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We're not good losers, you better believe we're sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we're called 'purists.' Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We're purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans."It always amazes me the sheer number of women who defend abortion. Legal abortion has killed 52 million innocents since '73, that means 26 million roughly, were women. Sick." -Jen KuznickiAny woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country. -Margaret ThatcherEntrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States. -Ronald ReaganI am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end. -Margaret ThatcherBroadly speaking, the short words are the best, and the old words best of all. -Winston ChurchillCriticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things. -Winston Churchill
I Don’t Deny Global Warming ExistsI don't deny that global warming exists. It does not exist. There is not a pink elephant in my kitchen. I'm not denying it. It is not there. If I denied that there was a pink elephant in my kitchen, it would have to be there, but I would be lying to myself and everyone and walk around it to cook. But it is not there, therefore, I am not denying that it is.
Snyder said Wednesday that he unconditionally supports expanding the state's Medicaid rolls by roughly 470,000 people. There are 1.9 million people receiving benefits now.
"We're all here to support expanding Medicaid," Snyder said at a news conference called by a large coalition of groups that support the expansion. "We're moving forward with care for people who need it."
The ever-illogical argument that insuring more people will actually cost less. "But health care providers and advocates for the uninsured argue that the state will actually save money -- as much as $1 billion in the first decade -- if fewer residents have to rely on expensive emergency room facilities to address non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries."
Susan Dumass is really quite pedestrian. "The only thing standing in between 450,000 low-income Michiganders and health insurance is Tea Party Republicans' deep-seated hatred of Obamacare."
This week, Michigan’s Rick Snyder became the sixth GOP governor to propose expanding his state’s health insurance program to cover more low-income residents, in line with the Democratic administration’s strong recommendation.
Now that he's made the decision, Snyder must sell the plan to the state legislature, where some members of his own party have repeatedly attempted to distance themselves from the faintest whiff of "Obamacare."
- I can find neither solace or comfort in government. I cannot find hope nor light among those pretending to take my best interest to heart. I cannot worship or revere another human being because there are none alive that can instill my faith. Give me the One God; the One Who had created the heavens and earth and had purposefully breathed life into me. The One Who dwells in the secret place and watches over me and always keeps me company when all others abandoned me. But for Him I would have no purpose in this life; thank you Dear God.
