This from a state that takes more in federal tax dollars than it gives back.
I'd love to see some of these right-wingers "rise up" against the most powerful
military that the world has never known. Talk about high comedy...Barack Obama is going to be your president for at least three-and-a-half more
years, Utah. Time to put on your big-boy pants and deal with it.
KJB that was a very insightful and intelligent response. I'm just wondering, to
KJB, it will be eight. "Freedom is no longer valued, law is ignored,
the Constitution is trampled, government-enforced theft of private property
abounds, book-length legislation neither read nor understood is jammed through
under false pretenses, PC-foolishness and eco-nonsense permeate, unfathomable
spending and debt enslave us.All branches of government have become
corrupt."Paul Sharp, why are you are talking about the Bush Admin
still? It's okay, they are gone.
Great letter. Well said.
To KJB,You must be a graduate of the new education system that this
nation is subjected to.You do not know your history very well.In the
1770's the British had a very powerful military. It was thought by some
that those who wanted to break away from English rule were quite mad.That
those wanted to break free of the English tyranny would never be able to defeat
such a military force.The early Americans patriots (terrorists under the
Dept of Homeland Security guidelines of today) really did not want to break the
ties with England, but taxes and other unjust policies created by King George
forced them to revolt against English rule.Today this nation is near the
same conditions that existed in the 1770s'. High taxes, too many insane rules
and leaders that will not listen to the ones who voted them into office. What will happen in the next 3.5 years?I really do not know precisely
what will happen. It will get real interesting though. I have a
feeling that these will be considered the good old days. Days of wine and
roses.Wine loses its favor and roses do die.
Paul, The revolution is occurring right now and I am happy to report
that you are on the losing side. But thanks for the daily dose of foolish
@KJB, better you name should be KGB. You delt with a conservative president so
well, and you want to force us to deal with a lying, untrustworthy president by
saying we are children. Hope you like the state of the US when this
administration is done. By the way, we are talking about what we can do now,
the past is in the past, but you "girls" can't seem to let the past go.... So
sad for you...
So, KJB, you like what the letter-writer says is happening to your/our
country?We should just buck up and let it happen?I don't
think the letter-writer intends an armed conflict with our military, but rather
a cultural revolution that removes current idiots from power.Too bad
that all you can do is call names when such important subjects are brought up.
Perhaps whiners like you should be left on the sidelines of such important
discussion and leave the serious talk to the grown-ups.
Hi Paul:Look around -- a revolution is underway! We've got a
president with the guts to address America's oil addiction, get people access to
healthcare, stop torture, re-build ties with allies and open dialogue with
enemies, exit an ill conceived war on Iraq, encourage energy efficiency, address
climate change, use science to set policy, and revive the economy beyond tax
cuts for the rich. What a breath of fresh air from the stale Bush era. Bush believed government was evil and sought ways to gut it. Obama
wants to make government work and be responsive to the will of the people to fix
all the crises instigated by the Bush Administration. Bush's poor response to
Katrina victims epitomized the Bush era philosophy of apathy and government
ineffectiveness. Watching Obama clean up Bush's mess and restore
America's integrity amongst its citizens and the world is exciting. Stay tuned!
This is the second day in a row with a letter entitled "Time for a revolution."
There sure are a lot of revolutionaries in this state!
I love what's happening to our country. We're finally dealing with reality, and
doing so like adults. Republicans lost the election fair and square.
They deserved to lose. They don't like the fact that they lost - so surprise
there. Why are they acting like a bunch of spoiled brats?What's
with the temper tantrums and veiled threats?Grow up.
We have revolutions in America. They are called elections. The previous
adminstration and their supporters were legaly overthrown. Organize and spread
your message. Maybe you can be victorious in the next election.
Paul, where were you last year? We really needed it then. We had a revolution
of sorts in the historic 2008 election. Now help the man elected under the
Constitution (as provided for by the Founding Fathers) be successful.
Wow, the reich loses one election and its time for a revolution? The entire
letter was one run-on sentence straw-man argument. Yes, by all means, move to
Montana and join a compound. The adults will go on like we always have. I didnt
think it was possible but the AM radio crowd has become even more pathetic.
Vote the bums out!And do it in the PRIMARIES if you don't want to
vote for "the other party."
I wonder if the letter writer really means what he says. Is he advodating armed
insurection against the U.S. goevernment?
when are people going to stop blaming bush for katrina? don't you understand
that he could only have helped if the state's governor asked for it? and no, he
did not. in fact, he said he didn't need it. what you need to understand is that
if bush had done what you say he should hav done he would have been impeached.
oh but i am sure that's why you are so mad about it. you wanted him impeached,
and i'm sure the goovernor wanted that to. you guys were just praying for him to
go in there and ten impeach him. and as for barak hussein obama, he is gutless.
the only thing he wants to adress is that our entire nation and its history is
evil. tax cuts? is that all you can say? oh we need more tax cuts for everyone
except the rich. well, that's why he won. because america has become a sell out.
we sold our morals and principles because he promised a $200 bonus for low
income families. are you still going to say the election wasn't bought?
This is the first time I have made a blog-style comment here, but the paper
(probably inadvertently) edited out much of my letter, making it appear that I
advocate revolution, which is incorrect. I clearly hinted that the Second
Coming would be the "event" which returns us to Constitutional principles. As
for other points: 1 - I abhor both parties' administrations (and Utah's 2
past governors as well). There is "no difference in direction, but only speed."
2 - For those who think government is headed down the right road these
days, I can only respond: that's why I think we're beyond recovery. There are
now so many stupid enough to believe that government is the answer (there are
exceptions such as naitonal defense) that they deserve it. PAUL
Paul, Just trust God and have your food storage. The Prophet will tell us what
For Neocons, revolution must occur anytime we see anything that we disagree
with.From Registration fees to government bailouts. Maybe if I break
my nail on that "Communist" Library door I'll ask to gather the rest of my
fellow Utahn citizens for revolution!
