Halvorsen at American Thinker: ‘What Was Lost’

Filed under: Economy,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 7:17 am

I’m not ready to concede that they’re “lost,” but they’ve surely been misplaced.

Greg Halvorsen at American Thinker has compiled a pretty good list:

-Religious liberty and the Constitutional protection of moral conscience;
-Abundant, affordable energy–the key to economic prosperity and growth;
-An American military capable of protecting our national interests and projecting power, when and where necessary, around the globe;
-Affordable, accessible, and innovative health care based, increasingly, on transparent pricing, choice and competition;
-A federal budget that averts Fiscal Calamity the result of massive debt;
-Education policies that prioritize parental wishes and that which is best, in respective states, for each child;
-Tax rates that encourage individual initiative and entrepreneurial risk, as opposed to crushing, punitive taxes that stymie opportunity and discourage endeavor;
-Courts – including the Supreme Court – ideologically oriented toward upholding the Bill of Rights;
-An immigration policy that values LEGAL citizenship and creates disincentives to hire aliens who take Americans’ jobs;
-The sanctity of Human Life as a national priority;
-The sanctity of Marriage as a heterosexual institution;
-The sanctity of religious expression as a bulwark of American Life.

… the idea that monopolistic Federal Power, run by a Fourth Rail of bureaucrats, will create wealth is absurd. Barack Obama is to Freedom – to the Constitution and to individual rights – a disease. Those who think otherwise, who either are unaware of or in support of this unprincipled, anti-American demagogue, are a danger to the country. <

And, to themselves.

And every time they fail, their answer is “We just need more power; then it will work.” No it won’t.



  1. Layoff bomb detonates; Large corporations join small businesses in announcing mass cuts

    You know Tom, it would be instructive to Obama voters concerning the consequences of their vote to see it in real time…

    How about a weekly lay off watch column listing all the companies and the numbers of people losing their jobs to ObamaCare? A nice touch would be a job loss clock (like the national debt clock) on the banner or below it ticking away the wrecked lives. Elections have consequences.

  2. Uh-oh!

    Military Absentee Ballots Delivered One Day Late, Would Have Swung Election For Romney

    Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.

    Officials say the ballots were delivered late due to problems within the military mail system. Tracking invoices show the ballots sat in a warehouse for a month, then they were accidentally labeled as ammunition and shipped to Afghanistan. At Camp Dwyer, Marine Sergeant John Davis signed for them and was surprised at the contents.

    Would that be accidentally on purpose? Will there be a court challenge? Will the ballots even be counted due to legal trickery? Don’t look for the MSM to say anything but instead smother the story.

  4. It would be good to see a weekly layoff tally. But the Mainstream Media would never dare print such bad news like that. They will be in the tank for Obama for the next four years. Sunny days ahead!

  5. Stunning Job Losses Since Obama Re-Elected

  6. #1 is a brilliant idea. It reminds me of the graph I see every month on different websites that charts the current unemployment rate with the rate Obama said we would have if we’d passed the stimulus. Just a nice source for information which I suspect will be plentiful.
