The latest move of the camel goes even beyond nationalization of the banking industry. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has now "asked Congress...to give the White House unprecedented powers to seize large insurers, investment firms and hedge funds..." Unprecedented powers to seize. That phrase should send chills down your spine. Our Constitutional rights, our freedoms and liberties are flying away.
Furthermore, the New York Times reports that Obama's Administration is calling "for increased oversight of executive pay at all banks, Wall Street firms and possibly other companies as part of a plan to overhaul financial regulation..." Obama's all-out war on wealth continues to ramp up steam, but the American people must realize that this attack is not on "Them", it's on "Us." Any government regulation on the private business sector is regulation on the private citizen and his ability to conduct his business and his life. Our Constitutional rights, our freedoms and liberties are flying away.
So what to do about the Government Camel taking over our tent? I can send all the tea bags to Washington I want (and I will); I can mail red envelope after red envelope (and I have); I can email my Representatives and the White House (and I do): but if true, principled, conservative leadership does not arise, the America we grew up in - the Land of the Free - will not be the America our children and grandchildren will grow up in, for our rights, freedoms, and liberties will have flown.
