Great Presidential Quotes and then there's Barack Obama....

Here are some great presidential quotes:

George Washington
“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
Thomas Jefferson
“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.”

James Madison
"The truth is that all men having power ought to be mistrusted." 

Andrew Jackson
“Any man worth his salt will stick up for what he believes right, but it takes a slightly better man to acknowledge instantly and without reservation that he is in error”
Ronald Reagan
"The most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"
"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

.....and then there's Barack Obama:
"Let's Make It a Little Harder for Our Kids to Get Gunned Down"
Obama wiping a phony tear from his eye, to add
emphasis to his concern about gun legislation.
In other words, your kids are going to be "gunned down"--let's just make it harder for that to happen. Who thinks like that? Who talks like that? No one I know, except our beloved president,  who will exploit any tragedy for political gain. He wants every American thinking that their son or daughter is about to be gunned down and if we don't enact new gun legislation, our children won't have a chance for survival!

How about this, Mr. President, we already have 20,000 gun-control laws on the books. Let's begin by enforcing some of those laws. 

Here's an interesting stat cited by Sen. Ted Cruz: "In 2010, over 15,000 felons and fugitives tried to illegally purchase guns and were turned down. Out of those 15,000, the Obama Justice Department prosecuted just 44. Why is the Justice Department not going after the criminals who are already trying to purchase guns?"-- The reason why is they (the Obama administration, including the Justice Department under Eric Holder) don't want to catch too many people and make it look like they have sufficient legal resources to deal with this, because that would THWART their effort to get even MORE RESTRICTIVE gun laws! As Sen. Ted Cruz puts it, "If you have an existing law that would shut down illegal gun traffic, why do you need a NEW LAW???

None of the laws on the books, or any new gun-control legislation would have prevented mentally-ill Adam Lanza from going on his shooting spree at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

We have yet to hear our President wax eloquent on violent video games, or Hollywood films. We have yet to hear our President really tackle the issue of mental  illness and the danger that some of the mentally ill pose to society. 

With the "new rights" afforded the mentally-ill by a Democrat congress in the 1980s, we can't institutionalize them and we can't even force them to take their prescribed medication. What's wrong with this picture?

  1. Anyone who can't see this administration's agenda for what it is, is hiding their head in the sand or a product of our education system. Probably both!
