    Hey has anyone heard about the tea parties happening across the US, in response to the Obama administration and the over the top spending?

    And by tea party, I mean, 1776 style...

          Good read:

          Asserting Sovereignty - Tenth Amendment Center

          I'll post more as I see them. It's time to start moving the states out of the Union if we are going to continue along this socialist path.

              A recommended read:

              Liberty & Tyranny

              Conservative talk radio's fastest-growing superstar is also a New York Times bestselling phenomenon: the author of the groundbreaking critique of the Supreme Court, Men in Black, and the deeply personal dog lover's memoir Rescuing Sprite, Mark R. Levin now delivers the book that characterizes both his devotion to his more than 5 million listeners and his love of our country and the legacy of our Founding Fathers: Liberty and Tyranny is Mark R. Levin's clarion call to conservative America, a new manifesto for the conservative movement for the 21st century.

              In the face of the modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values, an attack that has steadily snowballed since President Roosevelt's New Deal of the 1930s and resulted in a federal government that is a massive, unaccountable conglomerate, the time for re-enforcing the intellectual and practical case for conservatism is now. Conservative beliefs in individual freedoms do in the end stand for liberty for all Americans, while liberal dictates lead to the breakdown of civilized society -- in short, tyranny. Looking back to look to the future, Levin writes "conservatism is the antidote to tyranny precisely because its principles are our founding principles." And in a series of powerful essays, Levin lays out how conservatives can counter the liberal corrosion that has filtered into every timely issue affecting our daily lives, from the economy to health care, global warming, immigration, and more -- and illustrates how change, as seen through the conservative lens, is always prudent, and always an enhancement to individual freedom.

              As provocative, well-reasoned, robust, and informed as his on-air commentary, Levin's narrative will galvanize readers to begin a new era in conservative thinking and action. Liberty and Tyranny provides a philosophical, historical, and practical framework for revitalizing the conservative vision and ensuring the preservation of American society.

              About the Author
              Mark R. Levin is a nationally syndicated talk radio host and president of Landmark Legal Foundation. He has also worked as an attorney in the private sector and as a top adviser and administrator to several members of President Reagan's cabinet. The author of the New York Times bestselling books Rescuing Sprite and Men in Black: How the Supreme Court Is Destroying America, Mark holds a B.A. from Temple University and a J.D. from Temple University School of Law.

                Very cool.

                Here is a weapon that the states could use: Nullification.

                A solid article on the subject:

                  Some articles about health care in Canada. Can some of our Canadian friends comment on how accurate/biased these articles are?

                  CANADACARE MAY HAVE KILLED NATASHA - New York Post

                  Could Natasha Richardson had lived if her accident happened in the States?

                  globeandmail.com: Why Ontario keeps sending patients south

                  This article asks why Canadians are being sent south. One patient was sent to Detroit for help--that does mean things are really bad in Canada that they have to send someone to Detroit?

                  The Ugly Truth About Canadian Health Care by David Gratzer, City Journal Summer 2007

                  A Canadian doctor who was once supportive of state sponsored health care is now against it. I'm bringing these articles up not to knock Canada but because this is such a pressing topic in American politics. It's good to hear both sides of the story.

                          Healthcare in Canada is tricky and has its flaws but it also wonderful. I mean, some wait times are well...not ideal but everyone can get medical care. It isnt about who can afford it or who can afford the treatment/insurance, its just..there. I mean I just had to have unexpected surgery which i would not have been able to afford elsewhere. I got in quick! I was taken care of! And what did it cost me=nothing!

                          I had a family friend who went to Florida last year and got ill and what not and they tried to charge him 40000 bucks in the states for going to the ER. thankfully he had a good job here and his benefits covered it but wow. just, wow.

                          I understand in the states how wait times are little and such but it just seems like a double edged sword and i honestly think both Canada and the US need to look at their healthcare systems and make some changes perhaps.

                            How quickly you forget!
                            Its not about cutting and running. Its about watching the complete destruction of society and system of government that you love, and hold dear.

                            Yes, I am a Conservative. Which means, I am a Constitutionalist. I believe that the Founders knew what they were doing, and created a system of government unparalleled by any nation before, or since (no offense).

                            And that government that they envisioned has slowly deteriorated over the past century to where we stand now. Where it is completely unrecognizable. The Constitution is no longer viewed as the guidelines by which to govern, but rather something to circumvent.

                            And that is something I will never agree to, or condone.

                            From John Adams:
                            Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.
                            Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
                            And from Thomas Jefferson:
                            The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.
                            The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object.
                            I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.
                            Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.
                            No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.
                            If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
                            The price of freedom is eternal vigilance
                            The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.
                            I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
                            Was Thomas Jefferson psychic as well?

                            So I see a revolution in our future? Yes, I do. But it wont be as simple as the Civil War. Its not North against South. Its a war of ideologies.

                              I just don't get people that don't want anything to change from the original constitution. It was written many many years ago, and things have to be updated and changed to be applicable in these times.
                              You can't live by the same rules and laws that were written over 200 years ago. The only way to improve, is to change. You can't just stay the same and expect everything to get better
