A Principle of the Traditional American Philosophy
1. The Spiritual is Supreme
"... all men are created ... endowed by their Creator ..." (Declaration of Independence)
1. The fundamental principle underlying the traditional American philosophy is that the Spiritual is supreme--that Man is of Divine origin and his spiritual, or religious, nature is of supreme value and importance compared with things material.
2. This governmental philosophy is, therefore, essentially religious in nature. It is uniquely American; no other people in all history have ever made this principle the basis of their governmental philosophy. The spiritual brotherhood of men under the common fatherhood of God is a concept which is basic to this American philosophy. It expresses the spiritual relationship of God to Man and, in the light thereof, of Man to Man. To forget these truths is a most heinous offense against the spirit of traditional America because the greatest sin is the lost consciousness of sin.
The fundamentally religious basis of this philosophy is the foundation of its moral code, which contemplates The Individual's moral duty as being created by God's Law: the Natural Law. The Individual's duty requires obedience to this Higher Law; while knowledge of this duty comes from conscience, which the religious-minded and morally-aware Individual feels duty-bound to heed. This philosophy asserts that there are moral absolutes: truths, such as those mentioned above, which are binding upon all Individuals at all times under all circumstances. This indicates some of the spiritual and moral values which are inherent in its concept of Individual Liberty-Responsibility.
An Indivisible Whole
3. The American philosophy, based upon this principle, is an indivisible whole and must be accepted or rejected as such. It cannot be treated piece-meal. Its fundamentals and its implicit meanings and obligations must be accepted together with its benefits.
The Individual's Self-respect
4. The concept of Man's spiritual nature, and the resulting concept of the supreme dignity and value of each Individual, provide the fundamental basis for each Individual's self-respect and the consequent mutual respect among Individual's. This self-respect as well as this mutual respect are the outgrowth of, and evidenced by, The Individual's maintenance of his God-given, unalienable rights. They are maintained by requiring that government and other Individuals respect them, as well as by his dedication to his own unceasing growth toward realization of his highest potential--spiritually, morally, intellectually, in every aspect of life. This is in order that he may merit maximum respect by self and by others.
Some Things Excluded
5. This concept of Man's spiritual nature excludes any idea of intrusion by government into this Man-to-Man spiritual relationship. It excludes the anti-moral precept that the end justifies the means and the related idea that the means can be separated from the end when judging them morally. This concept therefore excludes necessarily any idea of attempting to do good by force--for instance, through coercion of Man by Government, whether or not claimed to be for his own good or for the so-called common good or general welfare.
It excludes disbelief in--even doubt as to the existence of--God as the Creator of Man: and therefore excludes all ideas, theories and schools of thought--however ethical and lofty in intentions--which reject affirmative and positive belief in God as Man's Creator.

Yes we all know what Bush did with Saudis beside been friends and invested in oil. What Bush did it was distasteful, but he is not the president, Obama is...
Republicans proposed to take from seniors on cost of living increase and Medicare cuts, but not from those making $250,000.00 and up??? Maybe than, Republicans WANT tax increase on everyone???
Maybe Obama wants to make Republicans to look, like they don't care...
Once upon the time, our politicians use to work for us....now "WE THE PEOPLE" work for them ...
Our politicians are rich, powerful and corrupted ...
Unless people are united, and stop fighting among them, politicians are taking advantage.
DIVIDE and CONQUER ...that's why politicians doo!

Jobs First Because Jobs Fix Deficits
By Dave Johnson | December 5, 2012
What happened to jobs? The pubic wants government to do something about jobs and getting the economy moving, and in DC the only thing is this weird argument about … anything but jobs and getting the economy moving!“Fiscal cliff?” What about jobs? Fixing the economy will fix the debt, not the other way around.

Thank you for contacting me regarding the prevention of fraudulent voting. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this issue.
Free and fair elections are part of the bedrock on which our Republic was founded. Fair elections depend on guaranteeing the one-person, one-vote standard. In the wake of allegations of massive voter registration fraud prior to the 2008 elections by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn) and other groups, many states have strengthened their voter registration and identification laws. Congress also successfully voted to strip Acorn of federal funding in the Continuing Appropriations Resolution of 2010 (Public Law 111-68).
At the federal level, Senator David Vitter (R-La.) has introduced the Voter Fraud Prevention Act (S. 168), which would set additional standards for the paid distribution of voter registration and election materials for federal elections. It would prohibit organizations from employing convicted felons for the purposes of distribution of such materials, and would strengthen organization registration requirements.
S. 168 was introduced on Jan. 25, 2011, and referred to the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, where it awaits further consideration. Please be assured I will keep your thoughts in mind should this or any other legislation aimed at enhancing the integrity of elections come before me in the United States Senate.
Once more, thank you for sharing your thoughts. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance in the future. I look forward to hearing from you again.
Rand Paul, MD
United States Senator

GOP senator backs tax rate hike on wealthy
Washington (CNN)- In a significant development in the fiscal cliff standoff, Republican Sen. Tom Coburn, a leading deficit hawk, said Wednesday he would support higher tax rates on wealthier Americans as part of a broader deal with President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats to avoid the crisis.
"I know we have to raise revenue," the senator from Oklahoma told MSNBC. "I don't really care which way we do it. Actually, I would rather see rates go up than do it the other way, because it gives us a greater chance to reform the tax code and broaden the base in the future."

Great Post. You Repubs tried so hard to make it impossible for Americans that were poor to vote it backfired. Thousands of voters turned out simply because of the Repub efforts to stop them from voting. I would like to see the same thing from the Repubs in 2016. Repubs never learn from history.
#67253 Dec 6, 2012
This is the only thing they can do, everyone knows that tax breaks for the wealthy don't produce jobs. We've had those breaks for how long?? 12 years?? nd Repubs here still go on and on about high unemployment?? They just don't get it!!
Be safe to say a lot more Repubs will be jumping off the too 2% tax break boat since many will be up for reelection in 2 years!
Our country survived bush (barley) and its great to see us getting back on track. With out a strong middle class we're dead in the water!!
I guess you've heard about Karl Rove and Dick Morris getting banned from Fox News?? I've brought this up a few times but the brave patriots are too cowardly to comment.
I'm just having fun with it now lmao

#67260 Dec 6, 2012
wtf must not be that stupid, Most Americans voted for Obama, of course.
#67261 Dec 6, 2012
It really fails to make sense to always go on and on about raising taxes on the wealthy.Why stick with it when all that does is make for unfair taxation?We need a fair tax system,not thousands of pages to favor one or the other special group,any where.That is called FAIR TAX!
Why try to work harder and get rich if the tax one pays goes to take it away from you?What we need is less posturing and more thinking and working together in Congress and the President!!!Everything they do is just to show off to the people out here that they are doing something.Most of which is not needed!
