Donald Cline 1 week, 1 day ago on America finally woke up

Too hot for you with a Constitutionalist in the room, isn't it? Leftists always would prefer people who speak the truth to go home lest those sandbagging the forum learn the truth.


Donald Cline 1 week, 1 day ago on America finally woke up

Sure we do. They are the descendants of the same people we fought off in the American Revolution, the people to whom Great Britain was at that time and is now a wholly-owned subsidiary, just as we are now, since 1913. I.E., the same people trying to sell us the totalitarian crock known as socialism, whose practitioners refer to themselves as Progressives and who want to regress our nation to the status of feudal satrapy under their control. The same people Andrew Jackson threw out of our country with extreme prejudice, and who swore to get even. The same people backing Progressive Democratic candidates and Republicans In Name Only who vote more like Democrats than the Democrats. The same people who refuse to count the caucus votes in those legislative districts where strict Constitutionalists receive majority votes, as happened to Ron Paul in the last two elections. The same people leading fools around by the nose and promising them largesse from the federal treasury and the producing taxpayers if they will support illegal immigration to infest our nation with millions of new voters who haven't the faintest clue what makes our nation free. The same fools who rammed a total incompetent non-citizen Marxist apparatchik with Muslim overtones into the White House as President along with the former Deputy Chief of Staff of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, for crying out loud, as his backroom mentor and political officer. All with the object of destroying the first nation in 25 centuries to establish private liberty as superior to the whim of kings and princes and wannabes like Hussein ... er, Obama. Gee, I wish I could just come right out with what I mean, don't you?


Donald Cline 1 week, 1 day ago on Not a list of suggestions

Excellent, J.B. While some may consider it "conspiracy theory," the evidence of a long train of abuses and usurpations makes it very clear the trend toward eviscerating the United States Constitution is not merely accidental, not merely random examples of isolated corruptions, but is a concerted, orchestrated attempt by very, very powerful cabals of people who simply cannot abide the existence of a society whose members are, or regard themselves to be, secure from their unrestrained power. Liberty under the rule of law sticks in their craw. It is an affront to their self-perceived superiority, and they are constantly working to undermine it. The Tenth Amendment , if enforced properly according to its plain English meaning, would be their death knell and the restoration of our Constitutional government, including a monetary system of intrinsic value, the recognition of the unratified fraud of the 16th and 17th Amendments, and a return to the prosperity of the first 100 years of our nation's history. It was during this period of time, according the to book "1900" published in that year, that "the living standard, health, wealth, education, and liberty from tyranny and oppression of the average working man, woman, and child improved more than it had during the previous 25 centuries." My personal view is that we do not need a Constitutional Convention in view of the fact the one we have is ignored anyway and there is no reason to believe a new amendment would fare any better. What we need is for government to act exclusively within the constraints of the one we have, and for agents, legislators, and judges who do not to spend time in the Graybar Hotel.

Thank you, Andrew. This is definitely an area in which we are part of the solution or we are part of the problem.


Donald Cline 1 week, 1 day ago on Are we a Republic or a Democracy?

Excellent. And the Second Amendment is included to recognize the pre-existing right of the people to keep it that way. Thank you, Miss Grassel.


Donald Cline 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Help democracy flourish

Well, unfortunately, while Thomas Jefferson did say "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.", I don't believe I have ever seen any record of him advancing the cause of "Democracy." Like the rest of the founding fathers, including the principal author of the Constitution James Madison, Jefferson believed Democracy -- rule by the majority -- was no less a tyranny and dictatorship than rule by an all-powerful king, or oligarchy, or dynasty, or aristocracy.

Not to get too far ahead of you, Wilma, but the United States of America was never established as a democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic with our representatives chosen by democratic vote, but the majority has no authority (as it does in a democracy) to deprive any minority of their fundamental rights. That is, we are supposed to be a Constitutional Republic, but first we have to require government to obey the Constitution and the rule of law, instead of devolving into the rogue occupation government we have now.


Donald Cline 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Vote for O’Halleran, Morrison

Uh ... Suzanne? Are you, like so very many low-information voters, assuming that the purpose of a legislator in the State government is to hold your hand, create jobs out of nothing, create free health care staffed by medical professionals willing to work without pay, and deprive you of your fundamental God-given right to self-defense against criminals and, en extremis, against tyrants in government? If so, you must be a Democrat, a socialist, or you must have been suckered in by one of these liars.

Here's a newsflash, Suzanne: Brenda Barton, Sylvia Allen, and Bob Thorpe ain't your momma and dada. It's not their job to bail you out from your ill-advised life decisions or the ill-advised economic decisions of others once your hurt has been experienced. It IS their job to protect, expand, and enhance your rights to make your own way in this world and be responsible for the consequences.

Or would you rather be fed, clothed, sheltered, transported, educated, medicated, and even entertained at the expense of taxpayers? If so, be careful what you wish for: All those things are available to the inmates of Florence Correctional Institute.

As for me, I'll take liberty and the responsibility for myself that goes with it. How 'bout you?


Donald Cline 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Beware of scams, banks

For what it's worth, Mr. Neal, it's not just your bank. Every bank and every credit union will do the same thing. It's been that way ever since banks bribed government into throwing our our money of intrinsic value and replacing it with I.O.U.'s representing units of the national debt.


Donald Cline 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Change or the same?

I would certainly expect a Doctor of Education (is that anything like "Ph.D."; i.e., "Piled Higher and Deeper"?) to have a better grasp of the left-right paradigm, and substantive issues versus social issues, than is indicated by your letter.

I recommend you go read my response to Noble Collins' LTE titled "Candidate Supports Schools." What you are requesting in your letter is the same thing that got us into this fiscal mess vis-a-vis schools in the first place: Democratic socialist Janet Napolitano spent us into the poorhouse before she bailed out to go spend more of our money for Obama and help him figure out how to bring our nation to its knees economically and philosophically.

We don't need politicians in the State legislature devoted to "social issues," doc. We need politicians in the State legislature devoted to the rights of citizens to be left the heck alone by government so they can deal effectively with their own social issues -- mainly the economy, their ability to make a living, support their children, support the community, and support the schools. Money doesn't grow on trees dotting the capitol campus; we have to have an economy to generate it. We need to get out land back from the federal government so we can derive revenue from it.

You have a doctorate in education? Did that include any classes on the U. S. Constitution and the fact that the federal government has no authority to do ninety percent of what it currently spends our money on? If we can stand up to the feds we'd have plenty of money to support our schools.


Donald Cline 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Candidate supports schools

Unfortunately, Noble, as you well know, the money is not just sitting there "in limbo" waiting for politicians to make up their mind. It isn't there at all. It wasn't there originally, thanks to our previous DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST APPARATCHIK governor Janet Napolitano, who spent us into the poorhouse until we had nothing to fall back on when the recession hit. Unfortunately that is what Democrat politicians always do when they manage to sucker enough voters -- or rig the polls or prevent legislation requiring proof of citizenship -- to get themselves elected.

If the Courts rule that the State must pay to the schools what the State doesn't have, I suggest they pay it out of the judicial budget -- or better yet, out of Napolitano's retirement fund, if she hasn't squirreled it away or spent it already.
