To keep the timeless concepts of Americanism alive in our Constitutional Republic


Overview of America

by John McManus

John McManus narrates a moving tribute to America and discusses the history of what makes America great and how only we, as informed citizens, can keep the timeless concepts of Americanism alive in our Constitutional Republic.

Part 4 completes the capitalism discussion started in Part 3 and explains differences between the monopolistic state-controlled economy and the competitive free enterprise system and how each aligns with a specific political system. Mr. McManus closes with questions of what type of America will we leave for future generations and whether or not we will return America to its Constitutional roots.

Overview of America in ONE segment

We need to preserve this mass movement for the defense of liberty; which Ron Paul has created, without regard to what happens in the election. Ron Paul has created a mass movement for the defense of liberty Ron Paul has done what I, and many other people, have tried to do for forty years. This movement must NOT evaporate away after the election: without regard to how the campaign, or the election, goes. The election is just ONE BATTLE in the war for liberty. Even if Ron Paul WON the election this war for liberty will not be finished.

Thomas Jefferson said: "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."

I add to this: "The battle for freedom is never won, and is never lost. The battle for freedom always continues. It is never too late, and it is never soon enough, to defend freedom. No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope. No matter how free we are we are never safe."

We could WIN the election, and still lose the battle for freedom, if we fail to maintain this mass movement for the defense of liberty. Ron Paul cannot do everything by himself. The masses, organized for the defense of liberty, will be needed to influence Congress to support President Paul.

We could lose the election, and still WIN the battle for freedom, if we maintain this mass movement for the defense of liberty. Our liberty is in our own hands. President Paul would inspire us... BUT it is still up to us!

The freedom message walks on water. Ron Paul is a human being, who puts his pants on one leg at a time. Ideas; not individuals, are the life force of lasting revolutions.

We must formalize the organization of the mass movement for the defense of liberty. We must DO THIS NOW, while the enthusiasm still survives.

Regardless to the phony polls and the vote fraud, WE ARE WINNING! visit:

Media Caught Lying

5% of the people make things happen.
15% of the people watch things happen.
80% of the people never know what happened.

Find the FIVE PERCENTORS and get them organized. Please join

If you are in this group, we know that you are not one of those 80% of the people, who never know what happened. At the very LEAST you are watching things happen.

The question is whether you want to be one of the
15% of the people who watch things happen. OR one of the
5% of the people who MAKE things happen.

We want to live the rest of our lives in peace and freedom. To do that, we need to TAKE ACTION. We also need a lot MORE PEOPLE, who will TAKE ACTION.

Neues Wettrüsten: Rüstungsausgaben weltweit auf 1,179 Billionen US-Dollar gestiegen

Die weltweiten Rüstungsausgaben haben nach Angaben des "Internationalen Konversionszentrums" die Rekordhöhe von 1,179 Billionen US-Dollar erreicht. Die globalen Militärausgaben hätten zwischen 2001 und 2006, dem letzten Jahr, für das umfassende Zahlen vorliegen, real um etwa 30 Prozent zugenommen, sagte der Direktor des Konversionszentrums, Peter Croll, am 15. Mai in Bonn. Abrüstungsverhandlungen seien zum Stillstand gekommen und vieles deute sogar auf ein neues Wettrüsten hin. Es müsse "gegen den Trend gehandelt werden, um die Abrüstung wieder in Gang zu bringen", sagte Croll.

The Squeeze on the Middle East's Moderates

David Ignatius, of The Washington Post: "Watching the news from Lebanon, it's poignant to read the title of a new memoir by Jordan's former foreign minister, Marwan Muasher, 'The Arab Center: The Promise of Moderation.' The daily headlines tell us that centrist Arabs such as Muasher are becoming an endangered species. The center is under siege in Lebanon and across the Middle East as the region becomes more polarized between Iranian-backed extremists and US-backed forces."

Republican Election Losses Stir Fall Fears

Adam Nagourney and Carl Hulse, of The New York Times: "The Republican defeat in a special Congressional contest in Mississippi sent waves of apprehension across an already troubled party Wednesday, with some senior Republicans urging Congressional candidates to distance themselves from President Bush to head off what could be heavy losses in the fall. The victory by Travis Childers, a conservative Democrat elected in a once-steadfast Republican district on Tuesday, was the third defeat of a Republican in a special Congressional race this year."

Blackwater's Proposed San Diego Training Facility Draws Criticism

Tony Perry, of The Los Angeles Times: "Blackwater Worldwide, the global security firm whose conduct in Iraq has drawn criticism, is again trying to open a training facility in the face of local opposition. In March, the firm dropped plans to build a 220-acre training camp in rural Potrero, about 45 miles east of downtown San Diego. A coalition of rural property owners, environmentalists and antiwar activists opposed its effort to build a 'combat town.'"

New Legislation and Debate on Net Neutrality

Christopher Kuttruff, of Truthout: "Last week, lawmakers proposed legislation on network neutrality that would open up the possibility for antitrust lawsuits against companies that violate the bill's regulations. The bill has fueled the ongoing debate about the implications of network regulation. On Thursday, May 8, House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Michigan) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-California) introduced the 'Internet Freedom and Nondiscrimination Act of 2008' (H.R. 5994) which seeks to prevent anti-competitive and discriminatory activity by broadband Internet service providers."

Die Verfassungsrichter kassieren eine rot-grüne Legende

„Lügen haben kurze Beine", besagt eine Volksweisheit. Aber mehr als fünf Jahre - bis zum 7. Mai 2008 - hat es immerhin gedauert, die während des Irak-Krieges amtierende Bundesregierung einer schamlosen Täuschung der deutschen Öffentlichkeit zu überführen. Hatte Kanzler Schröder stets hoch und heilig versichert, man sei nicht an einem unter US-Kommando geführten Krieg gegen den Irak beteiligt, urteilte nunmehr das Bundesverfassungsgericht: "Mit der Luftraumüberwachung der Türkei in AWACS-Flugzeugen der NATO haben sich deutsche Soldaten an einem Militäreinsatz beteiligt, bei dem greifbare tatsächliche Anhaltspunkte für eine drohende Verstrickung in bewaffnete Auseinandersetzungen bestanden."..“ Artikel von Jürgen Rose in Freitag vom 16.5.08

Hillary: She won’t go easy!

by Camille Paglia


Bulletin to all nations: help! Tornadoes, typhoons and earthquakes batter the globe, while the U.S. is teetering into recession and paralyzed by a stupid war it can neither win nor quit. But somehow we are locked at the hip to Hillary Clinton, who won’t stop her manic tarantella until her party whirls into ruins, like the run-amuck carousel in Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Strangers on a Train.’ … It’s what Hillary’s campaigning has come to: a monotonous exercise in showboating solipsism, like Shirley MacLaine as the geriatric mother in ‘Postcards from the Edge,’ hijacking her daughter’s party and kicking up her heels to sing ‘I’m Still Here!’

Torture: A bully’s creed

A Shameless Barbarity

by Reza Fiyouzat


For the past seven years — and especially since those ghastly pictures from your friendly security providers at Baghram, Abu Ghuraib and Guantanamo concentration camps, showing prisoners’ dignity, rights and minds shredded to smithereens — continents of ink and keystrokes have had a go at this ‘controversial’ topic. Yet, few commentaries have shed any real enlightenment upon the subject...

The way bullies think

Tibor's Space
by Tibor R. Machan


It is nearly impossible these days to escape the bullies who are set to run everyone’s life. I thought I would visit friends on the Central California Coast to get away from it all for a day but no such luck. No sooner did I settle in with my friends to drink a glass or two of some very fine wine from their and some other cellars, I encountered yet another horror story about the demise of private property rights in the United States of America. This time it isn’t the eminent domain bullies who have been popping up everywhere, insisting on misconstruing the Fifth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution as authorizing transfer of private property by government edict to preferred private concerns. (That is what the outrageous Supreme Court Ruling in 2005, Kelo v. City of New London Connecticut sanctioned.) This time the excuse is a legal fiction called ‘Smart Growth,’” whereby powerful politicians everywhere are forcibly imposing their vision of how people should live and use their own land.!B2FD693F4B9A5746!205.entry

Why the U.S. Has Gone Broke

I give up, says Brazilian minister who fought to save the rainforest

Independent [UK]


“Brazil has been accused of turning its back on its duty to protect the Amazon after the resignation of its award-winning Environment Minister fuelled fresh fears over the fate of the forest. The departure of Marina Silva, who admitted she was losing the battle to get green voices heard amidst the rush for economic development, has been greeted with dismay by conservationists.”She was the environment’s guardian angel,” said Frank Guggenheim, executive director for Greenpeace in Brazil. “Now Brazil’s environment is orphaned.”

In a letter to President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, Ms Silva said that her efforts to protect the rainforest acknowledged as the “lungs of the planet” were being thwarted by powerful business lobbies. “Your Excellency was a witness to the growing resistance found by our team in important sectors of the government and society,” she wrote...

Court bars Bush administration’s logging plans for Sierra

San Francisco Chronicle


A federal appeals court blocked the Bush administration’s plans today for logging three tracts in the northern Sierra and said the government has failed to justify a critical element in its plan for the forests — selling trees to lumber companies to pay for removing brush that increases the threat of fire. Preventing fires is important, ‘but are there no alternative ways of getting money to do the clearing?’asked the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The court said the U.S. Forest Service has not explored the obvious alternatives: finding the money elsewhere in its budget or asking Congress for more...

Home Mortgage Hijinks

by Jon Christian Ryter

The home mortgage default and foreclosure figures are in for February. The Bush Administration was not anxious to release them. The figures don't look good. The home mortgage crisis has become contagious. It's spreading from the subprime home market into the prime loan market. Approximately 2.3% of the holders of prime rate mortgages were at least 60 days late. That number is up 1.4% from a year ago. It is the highest level of delinquencies from prime rate borrowers in a decade. Prime rate mortgages are given only to the "A" list of credit worthiness........

Corporations Grab Climate Genes

Writing for Foreign Policy in Focus, Hope Shand says, "First the biotech industry promised that its genetically engineered seeds would clean up the environment. Then they told us biotech crops would feed the world. Neither came to pass. Soon we'll hear that genetically engineered climate-hardy seeds are the essential adaptation strategy for crops to withstand drought, heat, cold, saline soils and more."

Oil and Politics

Truthout contributor Richard Heinberg writes: "On Tuesday, Senate Democrats introduced legislation that would halt a US arms sale to Saudi Arabia worth $1.4 billion. The implication is clear: no more war toys for the Saudis unless they agree to up their oil output."

Edwards to Endorse Obama

Jim Rutenberg and Julie Bosman of The New York Times report: "John Edwards, the former senator from North Carolina who bowed out of the presidential race in January, is expected to endorse Senator Barack Obama at a rally being held here tonight."

NARAL Pro-Choice Backs Obama

Beth Fouhy of The Associated Press says, "Democrat Barack Obama has won the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice America, a leading abortion rights advocacy organization that has supported rival Hillary Rodham Clinton throughout her political career."
