Jay Inslee’s Townhall Meeting
August 30, 2009

Congressman Inslee began the townhall by saying “The greatest democracy in world history is the United States of America”.

 He asked that everyone observe a moment of silence “to honor the recent losses of our sons and daughters in Afghanistan and Iraq who are very close to our hearts and minds.”

 He thanked the crowd for coming and for listening to each other with civility. He asked everyone to shake hands with their neighbors in the event they had differing views.

 He said he looked forward to a vigorous discussion and said, “This is your chance to criticize your congressman” while pointing out his mother-in-law and wife in the audience in a humorous way.

 To begin, Congressman Inslee wanted to “run through facts” and then open things up for questions, comments and ideas.

The essence of freedom is proper limitation of government

Posted by

Our caucus includes people who have lived under tyranny. Ava escaped from Hungary during the revolution in 1956. She told me that as a school girl, a friend confided that in America, people can say anything they want without fear of being punished by the government. At that point, she knew she had to get out of Hungary. 

 Throughout history, most people have lived under tyranny. Mao Tse-Tung’s policies and political purges in the first decades of the People’s Republic are widely attributed to the deaths of between 40 to 70 million people. Stalin was responsible for the deaths of between 20 and 60 million people.

 Here is an incredible essay written by a woman who recently visited Auschwitz (Oświęcim). Her eloquent words bring to life the unimaginable horror and suffering inflicted upon millions of people: http://tiny.cc/Auschwitz

 It’s no wonder our founding fathers were so inspired to carefully create our Constitution. They pored over history to identify how republics morphed into tyranny: The essence of freedom is proper limitation of government.

 Being Americans who have always enjoyed liberty, it is hard to imagine having it any other way.

How many uninsured in the US?

Posted by

Sometimes I post something just in case I forget where I read it.  Hotair crunches the numbers using a 2007 Census Report.  It’s worth analyzing the number ’47 million’ of uninsured in the United States. Well, if you eliminate the illegals (9.4m) and people making over $50k (17m  who choose not to buy insurance), the number is considerably less than 47 million. The liberal Kaiser Family Foundation puts the number of uninsured Americans who don’t qualify for government programs and make less than $50,000 a year between 8.2 million and 13.9 million.

Here’s a link to the hotair article: http://hotair.com/archives/2009/08/24/how-many-uninsured-in-the-us/

This guy rocks!

James Madison wrote in 1788, in Federalist #63:
“[T]here are particular moments in public affairs when the people, stimulated by some irregular passion, or some illicit advantage, or misled by the artful misrepresentations of interested men, may call for measures which they themselves will afterwards be the most ready to lament and condemn. In these critical moments, how salutary will be the interference of some temperate and respectable body of citizens, in order to check the misguided career, and to suspend the blow meditated by the people against themselves, until reason, justice, and truth can regain their authority over the public mind?”

Lack of oversight at the Federal Reserve

Posted by


Is anyone minding the store at the Federal Reserve?

Gross Negligence at the Fed.  The drama unfolds slowly at first, so be patient and please watch it in its entirety.  First-term (anti-bailout candidate) Democrat Alan Grayson questions Elizabeth Coleman, Inspector General of the Federal Reserve.  The issue is oversight of the Fed’s ever-expanding balance sheet, and the potential multi-trillion dollar loss that would be borne by you.

A Government of the People or of the Politicians?

By Rev. Wayne Perryman

August 20, 2009

 Did you know that Article XX (20) Section 2. of the United States Constitution suggest or implies that Congress should be a part time job and not a full time job?  The article states the following:

 “The Congress shall assemble at least once in every year, and such meeting shall begin at noon on the 3rd day of January, unless they shall by law appoint a different day.”

 The early members of Congress were merchants, inventors, ministers, lawyers, businessmen and farmers.  They all had full time jobs and because many of the jobs were associated with the farming industry, they assembled after the harvest to do the nation’s business. Read more »
