Americans On The Double

Special to The Bold Pursuit -- a poem by Sandy Stringfellow

Ain't it funny how King Barry
Shows us who he is
Playing that worn out race card
Every chance he gets
Whining and bitching all the time
While breaking every promise
You won't see such immaturity
From Sowell, Williams, or Thomas

But there's more to the picture
Than most people know
For those who've paid attention
He's an emperor with no clothes
This unpleasant sounding metaphor
Defines his lewd behavior
King Barry's just another Marxist
Not a messianic savior

Why Vouchers Would Destroy the Public School System in One Year

by John Wayne Tucker - a Patriotic Perspectives featured blog

Vouchers are a huge political and educational issue right now. It is not a new issue by any means. The history of the voucher system goes back to the 1960’s when parents of parochial school children began to argue that it was not fair that they had to pay taxes to fund public school and also pay tuition to send their children to parochial school with no kind of financial break provided by the government. This became a genuine issue of separation of church and state. For the federal government to fund a religious school would be a real Constitutional violation. However, move forward to the present and we find a totally different argument. Given the problems faced by the public schools (which I will grant you are huge), the argument has turned to the issue of school choice.

Our Government Has Gone Gestapo

by Delia Lopez, candidate for United States Congress, Oregon, District 3 -- a Patriotic Perspectives featured blog

Not long ago, some small farmers in California, minding their own business, were raided by men with drawn guns, ready to shoot. It’s not unusual – violence like this goes on every day. Men with guns are terrorizing small farms right now and Oregonians rightfully demand an end to this wave of violence. Were they armed, roving criminals, perhaps, plundering the countryside? Drug gangs growing marijuana on their rival’s turf? No. It’s not criminal gangs battling each other, and it isn’t psychotic killers stalking peaceful family farms. Believe it or not, it is the police. Farmers all over the USA are being raided for selling milk, meat, eggs and other healthful foods! Small children held at gunpoint while their parents are accused of… selling milk! This is the United States Department of Agriculture at work, protecting you. It’s for your own protection, of course.

Who is Sharron Angle’s God? - Patriotic Perspectives

Sharron and Ted Angle
by Jeanette Ward

“How do you explain all this? You’re now a national story, are you kind of overwhelmed by it all?” asked Ralph Reed of The Christian Coalition.

“I believe that God has been in this from the beginning and because of that when He has a plan and a purpose for your life and you fit into that, what He calls you to He always equipped you for,” Sharron Angle replied.

Now her critics accuse her of claiming God told her to run for office, claiming God is on her side, etc. etc.

However, the real question is not whether God told Sharron Angle to run, but Who is Sharron Angle’s God?
Is He:

-Harry Reid’s racist deity, who despises those who speak with a Negro dialect (whose scriptures state that god cursed evildoers with black skin) and Hispanics who are intelligent enough to think for themselves, and perhaps - gasp - not be Democrats?

The War on Reason

By Sandy Stringfellow  Saturday, August 14, 2010
(originally published on CanadaFreePress.com)

Perhaps it was my having been drawn to the arts from an early age, and that Liberalism is irrevocably concomitant to the art world.  I’ve known many Liberals over the years, some of considerable talent, including liberal family and friends whom I dearly love.

Unfortunately, Liberals have initiated a considerable amount of harm to our nation from their blind application of circular logic when trying to make sense of the world. 

To justify their policy positions and beliefs, Liberals must jettison the prescriptions of reason, historical fact, and acceptance of human nature.

Protecting Our Freedoms

The following is Special to The Bold Pursuit sm  -- a Patriotic Perspectives feature

by Delia Lopez

We all want to be free and we all say we want everyone else to be free. The idea of forcing a fellow human being into slavery today is abhorrent to us. The theme of “Uncle Sam's Plantation,” by Star Parker, is slavery imposed by big government. “Uncle Sam’s Plantation” talks about people enslaved by a government whose main desire seems to be increasing the size and power of government. This system does not really help to improve the lives of the people they say they want to help. People who are trapped in the system of government aid and control know this better than any of us. A wise man once said, “The goal of any welfare system should be to eliminate the need for its existence.” That is a wise goal, meaning the objective is to empower people to achieve their dreams.

The Obama presidency increasingly resembles a modern-day Ancien Régime: extravagant and out of touch with the American people

Can We Save Freedom?

The following is Special to The Bold Pursuit -- a Patriotic Perspectives feature

Hello, I am Delia Lopez and I feel our freedoms are being stolen from us by the people we voted into office. We voted for them to represent us. They seem to be representing vested special interests, instead. What I mean by “our freedoms” include for example; our right to start a business to achieve economic independence, the right to privacy, the right to buy from whom you choose, the right to not have your earnings stolen from you to pay for something you detest, and did not vote for.

What is happening to our nation? Our country was founded on the idea that all men were created with unalienable rights. Among these were the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our founding fathers created this government to secure our rights. For me, that means being able to do as you please as long as you do not harm anyone else or infringe on their right to do the same.

You used to be able to start with nothing; get a rag, vinegar and water and start a business. With just hard work, you could live the "American Dream." Now, you must be licensed, bonded, and insured to start the smallest of businesses, and that takes thousands of dollars. This eliminates for many the possibility of starting their own business. This is killing the American Dream.

Missouri Voters Score First Blow Against ObamaCare

by Clio
"The Show-Me State showed Obamacare the door yesterday. And what they need to do next there in Missouri is to show the rest of the states how to raise the collective voice of We the People, and say that Obamacare is overreached, it's unaffordable, it's not supported, it's unconstitutional, as the 10th amendment and the Commerce Clause applies to government taking over that section of our private sector in healthcare." Governor Sarah Palin, speaking on “Hannity,” August 4, 2010 Fox News Channel

The Bold Pursuit congratulates the people of Missouri for overwhelmingly rejecting a fundamental provision in Mr. Obama’s health care reform bill. The citizens of the “Show Me” state, in a 71 – 29% vote, rejected the federal mandate to purchase health insurance.

Tuesday, August 3, 2010, was a bad day for Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; Missouri’s Prop C passed in a landslide vote disallowing a core element of the bill and, earlier in the day, Virginia scored a victory when U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson ruled against Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius’ motion to dismiss Virginia’s lawsuit, allowing the action against the federal government to go forward.

Election Fraud in America

by John Crouse, Special to The Bold Pursuit sm

When Democrats hear the term ”Election Fraud”, they automatically assume that it refers to the 2000 election and the Florida recounts. That was trivial compared to the frauds of the 2010 primaries, the 2008 Presidential election, and now we find out that the 2008 Democratic primary was rigged also.

During the entire 2000 Florida election debacle, seems the only protesters were voters who DIDN’T live in Florida. They claimed that, because Bush’s brother was the Governor of Florida, there had to be ballot tampering involved. Well, as someone who lived in Florida in 2000, voted in Florida in 2000 and followed the events of Election 2000 in Florida, I know that the election was won by Bush but was close enough to warrant a recount. When the recount was over, Bush won again. To satisfy the skeptics, they recounted again…. again, Bush won.  The state was in the process of a 4th  recount when counting was halted by the courts.  People (who don’t live or vote in Florida) claim that the election was stolen because of this court action.  My question is this… what does this have to do with Jeb Bush?

During all this, the St. Petersburg TimesMiami Herald, Orlando Sentinel and Tampa Tribune did independent recounts.  The results…  Bush won them all.  If Democrats had their way, we’d still be recounting today!   Bush won, Gore lost… get over it.

Maybe this is why Democrats think it’s OK to threaten and pressure delegates to change their votes from Clinton to Obama…  or intimidate voters at the polls… or pay candidates to drop out of races.

I’m curious to wee how much more criminal activity come out of the White House between now and November 2nd.
