"If the major opportunities for future growth of government lie in the area of conventional taxation, are there any defenses available to the citizenry? ... Perhaps the most fruitful advice comes in two parts. The first piece of advice is to avoid war and the rumor of war: this is history's greatest boon to the tax man. ... The second piece of advice is to seek ways of inhibiting government's ability conveniently to increase its collections. Possibly the very increase in that ability that is in prospect can be turned to account by a constitutional provision which forbade the income tax, and perhaps even the storage of information regarding individual incomes by third parties, including government." ~ Benjamin Ward

Imagine: You turn on your television and see on the news that Canada has laid claim to the state of Maine and New Hampshire , which they call the New Hampshire Strip, due to divine right. England is giving the Canadians billions of dollars worth of deadly high tech military equipment and weapons which they are using right now to shell, bomb and rocket the people in Maine and the New Hampshire Strip. Canada feels it has a divine right to all current US territory that made up the original 13 colonies and/or that was under British control dating back to the 18th Century because the American rebels had no right to wage war against the divine British monarchy. Once the fighting is over, the British Queen will once again be head of state over the ungodly former rebel colonies as she is over Canada.
As you look at the images on your television, you see horribly burned children who are victims of the British-made white phosphorous grenades and bombs the Canadians are using. You see a British-built fighter jet attacking an ambulance as paramedics are vainly attempting to load more terribly wounded civilians into the ambulance for a life-or-death trip to the hospital. As you helplessly watch this mayhem unfold, you feel the righteous hatred rise inside you for both the Canadians who're actually pulling the triggers and the British who are supplying them with the deadly and destructive weapons that are slaughtering your people.
You can't believe what happens next. The newly elected British Prime Minister appears on your screen and tells an interviewer that the British are not the enemies of Americans! How can he say this with a straight face as British rockets and bombs are killing Americans?
This is exactly the lie that United States President Barack Obama told Muslims and the world when he gave his first interview on Arab television. Being a politician at his core, he told an obvious lie. He told the Islamic people that America is their friend as the hospitals in Gaza are overflowing with Palestinian men, women and children who are the painful victims of American white phosphorous, bombs and rockets detonated on them by the Jewish state of Israel .
Hope springs eternal. This human condition is one of the things that keeps evil, corrupt states and their bureaucrats and politicians in business. It seems the entire world has very high hopes that Obama will bring 'change we can believe in,' even though he's just another political whore. He has already proven in the financial arena that nothing is going to get better because he surrounds himself with the same scammers and crooks that got us into this mess.
In regards to the Middle East , he made it very clear that virtually the same disastrous US foreign policy will continue when he gave his speech to the wealthy and powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee in June of 2008. In that speech he said, 'Those who threaten Israel threaten us; Israel has always faced these threats on the frontlines and I will bring to the White House an unshakeable commitment to Israel 's security.' He regurgitated the same senseless idea in the interview with Al-Arabiya TV when he said, 'Now, Israel is a strong ally of the United States . They will not stop being a strong ally of the United States . And I will continue to believe that Israel 's security is paramount.' By saying that Israel is now a strong ally of the US and it 'will not stop being a strong ally of the United States,' Obama continues to give Israel the deadly and destructive green light to do as they please with the BILLIONS of tax dollars worth of bombs, rockets, fighter jets, etc. that US politicians like Obama have given to the Israelis for over 30 years!
Obama's insane AIPAC-inspired twisted belief that anyone who threatens Israel threatens the United States is addressed by the former leader of the CIA 's Osama bin Laden team, Michael Scheuer in his must-read, thought-provoking book Imperial Hubris ' Why America Is Losing The War On Terror. Addressing this false idea that somehow Israel's interest and enemies are the same as America's, Scheuer writes, 'Like America or any state, Israel has a right to exist if it can defend itself or live peacefully with its neighbors; that is not the question. The question is whether U.S. interests require Americans to be Israel 's protectors and endure the endless blood-and-treasure costs of that role. Status quo U.S. policy toward Israel will result in unending war with Islam . . . . There is no greater duty today's Americans can perform for their nation and posterity than to finally abandon the sordid legacy of Woodrow Wilson's internationalism ' which soaked the twentieth century in as much or more blood as any other 'ism' ' and recall and institutionalize John Quincy Adam's advice that the United States must be the 'well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all . . . [but] the champion and vindicator only of her own.'' I also like what Thomas Jefferson wrote that can be applied to Israel and all other nations, 'Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto.'
To demonstrate that Obama and the Democrats care as little about democracy as Bush and the Republicans, all we have to do is realize that Obama's 'peace' envoy, George Mitchell, is NOT going to visit with anyone from the legally elected Hamas organization while visiting in the Middle East! How can anyone take Obama and the US government seriously when they snub the democratically elected party and instead visit with and promote the corrupt, but Israel-friendly Palestinian Authority? In this governmental charade, Mitchell is going to meet with and 'listen to' leaders from Israel, the West Bank, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and maybe even leaders from Turkey, but not Hamas!
In spite of the politicians selling out the people, it is a very great thing that hope does spring eternal! We just have to make certain that our hope is in the right thing, and not in politicians or government!
