Why Punish Honduras?

Finally, an article questioning why President Obama is attempting to undermine democracy in Honduras. O'Grady writes;"Mr. Obama's methods are decidedly uncool. Prominent Hondurans, including leading members of the business community, complain that a State Department official has been pressuring them to push the interim government to accept the return of Mr. Zelaya to power."

Why does Obama appear to consistently disrespect our closest allies and join hands with Hugo Chavez? Does he approve of ignoring the Supreme Court of Honduras and the Constitution of Honduras? Will he ignore our Supreme Court and our Constitution in his quest to transform our government and foreign policy. He demonstrates this more and more.

Sarah Palin, One Year Later

One year ago today, John McCain introduced Sarah Palin to America. For those who knew nothing about her, it was an enormous surprise. To those of us who knew a little of her history and success as the Governor of Alaska,it fulfilled a heart felt hope that somehow McCain might recognize her impressive record and the principles she exhibits.

Governor Palin brought excitement and hope to a lack luster campaign and candidate. Suddenly we had hope that McCain truly had more insight into the needs of our nation than he himself was expressing. It almost worked and may have succeeded if people had really listened to Sarah Palin instead of the media who felt a need to eviscerate her.

Many changes have taken place in the past year and we need leadership that embodies the principles and wisdom of our founding fathers, I do not know what role Sarah Palin will play in the future of our republic but hope she will continue to be active on the behalf of our country.

May God continue to bless this great nation with leaders who love it and our freedoms.

The Bizarre Bazaar of Czars

Is Congress asleep? The power grab by the executive branch by appointing czars (even when called special advisors) who require neither an FBI clearance nor a congressional hearing and who report only to the White House defeats the Constitutional checks and balances. Congress is supposed to represent the people and have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution. The majority of members of Congress served during the previous administration and complained loudly about the executive powers of the Bush administration. Is loyalty to the citizens and our Constitution secondary to party affiliation? This Independent voter wants to know.

If we survive the Obama administration may we be lucky enough to elect someone like Sarah Palin to restore honesty in government.
