100 Days? 4 Years? President Mitt Romney

Where has the time gone?  Just a few years ago there a great deal of hope, change and rhetoric ushering in our new President.  We did not know much about Mr. Obama, his school records were sealed, his birthplace a mystery, his work background sketchy.  Thus he became President by a small margin of victory.
And looking at his Administration we could see very quickly many deficiencies and issues.  The Secretary of Treasury  forgot to pay his taxes, he became confused on his role in Libor.  The Secretary of State supported/not support certain governments/regimes causing confusion.  Economic stimulus programs came and went causing the National Debt to balloon by $6 trillion dollars in less than four years.  The list to me seems endless of the failures of this Administration from both an economic and social standpoint.
Are you better off than you were in 2008?  Not in my economic opinion.
We really do not need another four years of learning on the job with a socialistic twist and effort to it.  We need leadership, we need economic growth, we need stability in our economy, and we need truth in our government.
We need Mitt Romney as our President.  A vote for Romney is truly a vote for change   And we need to change our President as soon as possible.

Wednesday's Ramblings-Just More Of The Same Economic Illiteracy

It is a hot summer here in one party rule Connecticutax.  The latest sides being taken by the Governor and the Attorney General in the Nursing Home strike is economically irrational.  Since when should our elected officials be involved in this type of situation?  To buy union votes?  Or for what other reasons?

By the way how is that growing budget deficit doing here in our one party rule state?

Representative Mary Mushinskys recent taxpayer paid for reelection brochure came in the mail the other day.  I was wondering if she was serious about what she wrote about in it.  It was very funny to see no mention of all of the higher and new taxes which were shoved down her 85th District taxpayers throats over the past two years-hey what about all of those tax increases she has consistently voted upon since she has been elected to office?  We will not mention those now would we?  We instead will talk about all of the business friendly incentives she and her one party ruled passed this past session-just after this massive tax increases and anti business laws that were passed last year.  Confusing?  It is meant to be that way when one party rule is economically illiterate.  It is rhetoric and over taxation at its best.  Please vote for someone new in November-Greg Bachand for the 85th State Representative District.

By the way how is that growing budget deficit doing here in our one party rule state?

Oh and I almost forgot, I still believe in hard work, in private education, in capitalism, in success and freedom from a tyrannical government.  Just the opposite of what I can not believe I heard come from the President of the United States. Please vote for someone new in November-Mitt Romney for President.

By the way how is that growing National Debt doing here in our country?

Connecticut's Continuing Economic Woes

And there continue to be many.  Many, many economic woes.  The latest is that our state ranks a mere 44 out of 50 states in the cost of doing business.  Business owners continue to fight on a daily basis excessive state regulations, excessive state and local taxes, a problematic unemployment compensation unlimited giving system, high workers compensation costs and a poor transportation infrastructure.  Why would you want to operate a business in Connecticut?  Couple that with a cost of living that ranks 48 out of 50 states next to only Alaska and Hawaii!  Unbelievable.
And the Murphys, Donovans, and Mushinskys of Connecticut's one party rule are running for elected office once again on their records.  Their records of high taxes, excessive spending, political nepotism and economic illiteracy.  That is some great record to run on.
Connecticut's continuing economic woes will not end until we see new people in office who know how to lead and do what is ethically right and economically right.  Enough is enough to this waste of government and business in our state.

236 Years of Freedom July 4, 1776 - July 4, 2012

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
