A Morning of Mourning March 22, 2010

The health care bill has passed the house, 219 to 212.

The destructive effects won’t be evident immediately, but we have lost yet another chunk of freedom–and the egregiously flawed policies just enacted will erode quality medical care and access for all of us. The prosperity of this nation will suffer under the increased burden of central planning. The laws of economics can not be legislated away.

All the good intentions in the world can not not be achieved on the backs of others.

It is a sad, sad day for freedom, and for the character of this nation.

I am disappointed and discouraged, but I am not through fighting.

Life is too precious.

I am the Tea Party Leader February 24, 2010

The Tea Party movement has been called “astroturf” by its enemies in attempts to belie its genuine grassroots origin. Proponents of Big Government are threatened by us little guys rallying across the country in droves, protesting government intrusions into out private lives–especially since Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts.

According to BigGovernment.com, former-Presidnet Clinton and James Carville, a political commentator and Clinton’s presidential campaign strategist,  plan

“to identify 7-8 national figures active in the tea party movement and engage in deep opposition research on them. If possible, they will identify one or two they can perhaps ‘turn’, either with money or threats, to create a mole in the movement. The others will be subjected to a full-on smear campaign.”

Wish them luck. I wonder who they will find?

In the spirit of Sparticus, the Tea Party Patriots have decided to help Clinton and Carville in their search.

Tea, any one? One lump or two?

Ideas for Change in America February 8, 2010

Here’s a cool idea using the power of the internet to tap into the resources of the general population.

Here’s the explanation for the website, Ideas for Change in America:

Ideas for Change in America is a crowd-sourcing competition that empowers citizens to identify and build momentum around the most innovative ideas for addressing challenges our country faces…

How it Works

Beginning January 20, 2010, individuals and organizations everywhere can go to http://www.change.org/ideas to (1) submit ideas for change they want to see implemented, (2) discuss these ideas with others, and (3) vote for their favorite ideas from around the country and promote them across the web.

During the first round of voting, ideas will be organized into 20 different issue-based categories. First round voting ends at 5pm ET on February 18th, at which point the three top ranked ideas in each category will advance to the second (and final) round of voting, starting February 22, 2010. In this final round, all 60 qualifying ideas (top three in each of 20 categories) will be in open competition. The final round of voting concludes at 5pm ET on March 4th, and the 10 most popular ideas at the conclusion of voting will be named winners – the “Top 10 Ideas for Change in America.”

Be sure to check out a specific freedom-based solution being offered to address the problem of health care costs and access:

Allow private citizens to associate freely and provide health insurance based on individual preferences and risk factors.

Read the essay, and if you find it sensible, please support it with your vote. It would be fantastic to see this make it to the finals.

A solution that increases access and choice while decreasing cost and preserving individual freedom. What’s not to like?
