The Gods of Liberalism Revisited


The lie hasn't changed, and we still fall for it as easily as ever.  But how can we escape the snare?

RINO Squad is Formed

A herd of RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) has a cover-euphemism for liberals who don't want to admit they're liberals) realize they probably can't win if they reveal their real formed, apparently to combat the execution of Republican ideals within the Republican Party.

Notice how this article quotes Duane Sutton: "We have run as Republicans and have won as Republicans ." That should change. These so-called moderates (a euphemism for a liberal who doesn't want people to know he's a liberal) know they can't get elected on their true values--or lack thereof--, and so "run as Republicans."

Sutton, other moderates form political coalition
Prompted by actions in Terri Schiavo case
From staff and wire reports

Seven Republican state senators in South Dakota have formed a coalition aimed at giving political moderates a greater voice on the issues.

The focus is at the national level, where moderates don't always have an opportunity to speak their mind without being branded, said Sen. Ed Olson, of Mitchell, executive director of the South Dakota Mainstream Coalition.

Other charter members are Duane Sutton of Aberdeen, Tom Dempster and Dave Knudson of Sioux Falls; Stan Adelstein, Royal "Mac" McCracken and J.P. Duniphan of Rapid City.

The Terri Schiavo case provided a catalyst for action, Olson said.

"I thought it was so inappropriate," he said. "There is a lot of libertarian in all of us. Government is really getting into areas where it doesn't belong."

Group members are trying to communicate their message statewide and are looking for others to join them.

"I think (the group) will give a voice for centrists and moderates of both parties that has been absent," said Adelstein.

Sutton said he is part of the group because he wants to speak out against the direction the government is headed.

"There are some things the government shouldn't be involved in," Sutton said. "We felt the need for action."

But Darrel Smith, president of the South Dakota Family Policy Council board, questions the mission.

"There has been a concerted effort the past several decades to remove God from the public square," Smith said. "What we need is not hostility to religion but a recognition of the Judeo-Christian principles upon which our state and country were founded."

Randy Frederick, chairman of the South Dakota Republican Party, said the party welcomes a variety of voices.

"This is what I talk about," he said. "We don't want to form groups and leave the party, but everyone has a right to voice an opinion. If you are afraid to listen to someone's message, maybe you can't defend what you are doing."

Sutton thinks there are more moderates than most would think.

"I think more people think moderately than they do with either the far-right or the far-left," Sutton said.

Olson said the senators have no intention of leaving the party.

"We have been treated very well by party leadership and have no reason to be disenchanted with the Republican Party or our governor," he said. "But it is our strong belief that we need to get back to a place where people of more moderate persuasion feel more comfortable."

The members of the group still claim to be adamant Republicans.

"We have run as Republicans and have won as Republicans - that isn't changing," Sutton said.

The eventual goal of the group is to have a lay board without state legislators, Olson said.

Supreme Court Tramples Fourth and Fifth Amendments

The U.S. Supreme court has now ruled that if the government feels like it, they can seize your house.

We're not talking eminent domain, where the seizure is for public use, but for the profit of economic interestes...and ultimately of those state and local governments which will stand to gain from the tax revenue generated by new businesses. A CLEAR conflict of interest!

The usual suspects (Stevens, Kennedy, Souter, Ginsburg and Breyer) voted once again to trash the Constitution.

Read about it at http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2005-06-23-scotus-property_x.htm?POE=NEWISVA.

The Fourth Amendmente says "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses...against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated..."

The Fifth says, "No person shall be...deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."

As Judge O'Connor said, on the right side (this time): "Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random," O'Connor wrote. "The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms."

In essense, the Supreme Court today threw out the 4th and 5th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution in favor of Plank #1 of the Communist Manifesto: Abolition of property in land and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.

When are the American people going to realize the Left has a bullseye on everything they hold dear and hold these despots accountable?
