“Warning”-Congress May Pose a Threat to Your Health and the General Welfare of the Nation


By Richard H. Frank 

When in the history of the United States have we witnessed a Congress dedicated to the destruction of the Principles and Values, enumerated by the Founders in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, as has the 111th Congress under control of the Democratic Party?  This Congress and the Obama administration have done more in 10 months to destroy the Free Enterprise System, mortgage our children’s future and move the country to socialism than all the liberal, progressive movements in the Nation’s history.

The House of Representatives and Senate no longer represent their constituents and have moved far beyond the powers authorized to them under Article I, Section Eight of the Constitution. The passage of legislation that creates government agencies run by bureaucrats with the power to regulate, without the consent of the People, can not be found in the Constitution. To argue that “providing for the general welfare” or evoking the “commerce clause” in the Constitution is a manipulation of the language and intent of the Founders.

The Financial Recovery Act, the Stimulus Plan, The Affordable health Care Act and Cap and Trade should they become law, or be perpetuated, will continue to suppress economic recovery and mortgage the future of every American. Congress has taken the position that they know what is best for us regardless of the opinion expressed to them by their constituents. Party ideology has usurped the will of the People and we are either ignored by our representatives or subjected to a barrage of political talking points.

It now appears as though the Administrations agenda will be advanced through a finding by the Environmental Protection Agency and not Congressional actions and securing of votes for proposed legislation by promises of political payoff and favors. Can it be a coincidence that the Environmental Protection Agency has released their finding in conjunction with the start of the Copenhagen conference on global warming? The finding states that carbon dioxide, the gas we expel from every life-giving breath we take, is a pollutant that will eventually lead to Armageddon. What ever became of the science we were taught that stated carbon dioxide was necessary for trees to take and process into oxygen through photosynthesis, a process that sustains the atmosphere? Is that a theory or just more junk science?

Congress continues to impose regulations upon our very existence under the guise of protecting us from greedy industrialists and in some cases ourselves. The truth is that big government’s (Big Brother’s) real motive is the control of every aspect of our lives, the economy and our freedom. The only alternative “We the People” have to stop the insanity is to change Congress by voting for candidates that will repeal any destructive legislation passed by the 111th Congress in the 2010 midterm election.  This must be done before the damage to our Nation is irreversible.

Now is the time to begin the vetting process of potential candidates for their Principles and Values to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution. A good tool to use in the process is to apply the Principles and Values form the 912 movement. Ask how the beliefs of the candidate measure up to the Nine Principles:

  1. America is good.
  2. I believe in God and he is the center of my life.
  3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
  4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
  5. If you break the law, you pay the penalty. Justice is blind, no one is above it.
  6. I have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
  7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
  8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
  9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

Does the candidate share the Twelve Values:

  • Honesty
  • Reverence
  • Hope
  • Thrift
  • Humility
  • Charity
  • Sincerity
  • Moderation
  • Hard Work
  • Courage
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Gratitude

Our government representatives profess to be the cream of the leaders in this country and should be held to a high standard. If these leaders, our representatives, do not measure up to the Values and Principles we expect then seek another candidate to replace them.

The Nation needs strong honest leadership not career politicians. Hold them to a high standard and accept nothing less for our country.

  1. You make a lot of noise and state a lot of issues but the Administration just rolls on. Who will stop the socialist Obamamachine? Unless the people get fed up enough there is nothing that can change the direction. The groundswell needs to be heard, but is drowned out by the mediaspins. We need to vote them all out. But a tremendous damage was done because the people believed the lies.

    • Henry, What we do about the Obama Administration and the corrupt 111th congress is to continue to educate the public through blogs like this one and others. You are absolutely correct in that the citizenry needs to wake up and vote all these progressive liberals out of office and return to the principles of government contained in the Constitution.
