De facto Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants Ordered by Obama in Violation of Federal Law

The President of the United States is required by the US Constitution to enforce and abide by all federal laws.  Unfortunately, once again, the current resident of the White House is violating federal law, this time with regard to enforcing the federal laws concerning illegal immigrants.  When Congress did not do Obama’s bidding by providing amnesty for illegal immigrants, Obama simply bypassed them, and used another one of his 126 Executive Orders to accomplish de facto amnesty for illegal immigrants anyway; that Executive Order is effectively instituting the DREAM ACT that Obama couldn’t get through CongressHe has repeatedly abused the use of Executive Orders by issuing Executive Orders to get around the  US Constitution (a sample of some of the Executive Orders are listed below; they should give every American pause, because there is no legitimate need for issuance of those Executive Orders).   Since de facto amnesty will allow 3+ millions illegal immigrants, ages 16 to 30,  to avoid deportation, an expert on federal law enforcement, who is also a writer/author for many Police and Security Magazines, expressed outrage in the below listed link.

               Outrage! De facto amnesty for illegal aliens ordered by Obama - National Law Enforcement |   

Since the Executive Order was signed by Obama, the Border Patrol has reported that they are having a very difficult time containing the massive influx of thousands of illegal immigrants, ages 16 to 30, who are trying to cross the borders to apply for de facto amnesty.  Illegal aliens who entered the country under the age of 16 and those who are now less than 30 years of age will not be deported; they will receive works visas as well.  The application procedure for de facto amnesty does not require proper documentation, just requires that the applicant “make a statement” that they attended high school; there is no burden for the alien to prove anything.  The illegal action of offering de facto amnesty to 3+ million illegals by the Obama Administration was authorized just weeks before the November election, in order to appeal to Hispanic voters.  It was done with complete disregard for how it is trashing apprehension procedures by Border Patrol Officers, immigration enforcement by CBP Federal Law Enforcement Officers, and is creating excessive workloads for ICE Officers.  George McCubbin, president of the National Border Patrol Council Union, contends that orders, issued by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, have made it impossible for Border Patrol Agents, CBP Federal Law Enforcement Officers, and ICE Officers to do their jobs.

The Executive Order providing de facto amnesty was executed, with disregard for 23 million unemployed Americans, the millions of recent high school graduates, and the millions of college graduates who will now have to compete for very scarce jobs with the 3+ million illegal immigrants, ages 16 top 30, who will be issued work visas by “just saying” they attended high school; they will be willing to work at much lower wages than America citizens.  The illegal amnesty was also authorized at a time when the Border Patrol’s Stations inland along the southern border are being eliminated, when the borders are still not secure, and after the Secretary of DHS testified before Congress (in the below listed article), that terrorists are, in fact, crossing the border in the midst of the increasing flow of illegal immigrants who violate federal law by sneaking into the US.  The above listed irresponsible Executive Order was perpetrated by the current resident of the White House, while the left of center liberal media establishment continues to anesthetize the public to the critical danger posed by allowing millions of illegal immigrants up to age 30 to effectively receive work visas by just making a statement, with no security checks/investigation.  The Obama Administration was so determined to ram de facto amnesty down the throats of the American public, that 10 Agents of the US Border Patrol have sued DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano for forcing them to violate the federal laws they were sworn to uphold.

The Enemy Within

These two short videos document the concerted effort by an organization to promote illegal voting.  We encourage you to view them, and kindly pass them on to those in your address book who support the federal law that permits American Citizens to only vote “once” in any election, and precludes illegal immigrants from voting as they have been recruited to vote in previous elections.

Congressma​n Paul Ryan's Support

Congressman Paul Ryan selection as Governor Mitt Romney running mate was an excellent choice because of his in depth knowledgeable of complex fiscal/budgetary issues, and because for his 7 terms in Congress, he has consistently been a “very strong supporter” of US military personnel in Combat, has protected the DOD Budget from unwarranted cuts like the proposed sequestration cuts being considered, and has supported Veteran’s benefits without fail.  If you click on the below listed link you will be able to view Congressman Ryan discuss why the flawed Obama Healthcare Bill fails Barack Obama’s own deficit test; his respectful presentation about the cost of the Obama Healthcare Bill to the current resident of the White House displays his thorough grasp of the long range negative impact the flawed Obama Healthcare Bill will have on healthcare for our children and grandchildren.  "I will not sign a healthcare plan that adds one dime to our deficits -- either now or in the future." (Remarks by Obama to a Joint Session of Congress on September 9, 2009)

VIDEO: Paul Ryan took apart Obama and Obamacare -- in 6 minutes!  

Congressman Ryan opposed the transfer of $716 billion from the Medicare Trust Fund to bankroll the flawed Obama Healthcare Bill, because the transfer of $716 billion from the Medicare Trust Fund by the Obama Administration has effectively decimated Medicare.  Unfortunately, it is the Obama Administration that is trying to “end Medicare as we know it” (to borrow a popular Democratic scare tactic repeated daily by the left of center liberal media establishment).  On the contrary, Congressman Ryan has proposed a plan to reform and also save Medicare from insolvency; insolvency will definitely occur unless changes are soon made to Medicare program.  Since the Obama Administration stripped $716 billion from the Medicare Trust Fund, and has not put forward a plan to prevent Medicare from becoming insolvent, Medicare is in serious trouble and in fact going broke.  Gov Romney has said when he is elected; he will repeal Obamacare and return the $716 billion from Obamacare to Medicare.  The Ryan Plan will not affect the Medicare benefits for seniors or for anyone over the age of 55, and it would also save Medicare for all Americans under the age of 55 by providing them with the option in 10 years of staying with traditional Medicare or selecting an option to purchase private healthcare insurance.  On the campaign stump, Barack Obama is misinforming the American people about the Ryan Plan for Medicare, by repeatedly stating that Congressman Ryan Plan would gut Medicare, and would increase the cost of Medicare benefits for elderly Americans by $6000/year—those are vicious lies, and Obama knows it.  The Republican controlled Congress has not gutted Medicare, this year they allocated $503 billion for Medicare in the Congressional Budget.                                                      

With no economic record to run on, the Obama Campaign Committee, and the Democratic Party are running a deeply negative campaign designed to divide the country; they have initiated a massive disinformation campaign that repeats outright lies about the provisions of Congressman Ryan’s Congressional Budget that he developed as Chair of the House Budget Committee.  He proposed a budget for consideration each year, for three years, and for the last three years Senator Harry Reid, the Democratic Senate Majority Leader, has not proposed one Senate Budget which is in violation of federal law.  The Congressional Budget that Chairman Ryan developed was designed to cut back the expansion of an already bloated government bureaucracy, to rein in the out of control spending by a fiscally irresponsible Obama Administration, and to stop the continued borrowing of 41 cents of every dollar being spent by the Obama Administration.  Although all members of Congress have agreed with every item in the three annual Congressional Budgets proposed by Chairman Ryan, most members on both sides of the isle in Congress still have a deep and abiding respect for Congressman Ryan, because he has proven to be a serious and intelligent legislator over the last 13 years.  We encourage you to pass the above link to the video to all those in your address book who care about the solvency of the Medicare Trust Fund, and who are also concerned about the accumulation of the $16 trillion in debt that the Obama Administration will increase, according to  its own proposed budget, and that every Democrat in Congress refused to vote for.

Obama Campaign Sues to Restrict the US Military From Voting

On July 17th, 2012, the Obama for America Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee, and the Ohio Democratic Party filed a lawsuit in Ohio seeking to overturn decades of military voting protections.  Specifically, in an attempt to gain more time for their supporters to vote in early voting, the Obama campaign and the national and Ohio Democratic parties argue that it is, “unconstitutional,” “without rational justification” and “arbitrary” to provide military voters more time.  Really?

The Combat Veterans for Congress PAC was founded to elect Congressmen and Senators who not only served in combat in our nation’s defense, but who are also dedicated to preserving and defending the Constitution of the United States.  And we believe that the most fundamental of Constitutional rights is the right to vote.  How ironic that the current Commander-in-Chief, who swore himself an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, is now arguing in court that the men and women he commands do not deserve any more time to successfully receive, cast, and return their ballots.

What’s even worse is that his minions at the Obama for America campaign issue dishonest press releases to completely misrepresent what the Obama campaign is doing, and how it can completely disenfranchise the US military; not only in the state of Ohio, but in every State and Territory in the Union.

That is why Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is joining 15 National Veterans Organization in opposing the despicable and heinous law suit filed by the Obama campaign and Democratic Party.  Do not underestimate the danger of this lawsuit – if the Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee are successful in this lawsuit, they will establish the precedent that military voters do not deserve more time to vote. 

Current federal law recognizes that military voters do, in fact, need more time, and mandates that all States send out their ballots at least 45 days before the election.  Many States also allow military ballots more time to get back to the election office and still be counted.  Ohio, for example, gives military ballots an additional 10 days to get back to the election office, in recognition of how slow military mail can be, especially for forward deployed troops.

But the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee do not care what destruction they sow in order to win this election.  If the Obama campaign and the Democrats win this lawsuit, that precedent will ripple throughout the military, putting all military ballots at risk.  For example, if a candidate running for Senate in Ohio loses by a small margin, and believes that getting rid of military ballots will improve his chances for winning, he or she would now have the precedent to go to the courts and demand that all the military ballots that came in under Ohio’s extended military ballot return time be thrown out.  And he or she would likely win in disenfranchising the military

That is why it is so important that we defeat the Obama campaign and the Democratic Party in their heinous attacks on military voting rights.  Don’t be fooled by the proclamations of Obama’s surrogates; their lawsuit is based on denying military voters special protection.  If they win, the military voter loses, and loses big.  Help us defeat this dastardly lawsuit by contacting the White House at 202-456-1414, and demanding that the Commander-in-Chief protect the voting rights of the troops and tell his campaign lawyers to drop their lawsuit.

The Poisonous Seeds of Class Warfare Sown

The Free Enterprise System in these United States has built the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind, and for over 236 years the opportunities in the Republic has been a magnet for those who immigrate to the United States with the promise of freedom and economic success.  That hope for economic freedom has been immortalized by Emma Lazarus’ sonnet “Give me your tired and your poor, your huddle masses yearning to breathe free.”  The legal immigrants from all over the world have immigrated because of the opportunity the Free Enterprise System has provided for individuals who are willing to “work” to attain success.

Unfortunately, the current resident of the White House has been dividing Americans, creating class warfare by portraying financially successful Americans, who attained their success by hard work and self-sacrifice, as greedy.  Obama continues to sow the seeds of class warfare by telling those at his rallies that very successful Americans have earned enough, and calls for tax increases on hard working Americans, so their earned incomes can be redistributed.  He doesn’t tell his followers, that if the entire incomes of the top 2% of American income earners were confiscated, it would only fund the government for 8 days.  The Marxist philosophy of redistribution of wealth has never worked.

For over the last 90 years, Socialism has been an economic calamity and its failure has been demonstrated by the economic failure that system created in every nation it has ever been tried.  History has demonstrated that Socialism has not worked in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic of Communist Russia, in the Nationalist Socialist Party of Nazi Germany, in the Peoples Socialist Republic of Communist China, in the Popular Socialist Party of Communist Cuba, and in the Eastern Block Socialist Republics of Communist East Germany, Communist Bulgaria, Communist Yugoslavia, Communist Romania, Communist Czechoslovakia, Communist Poland, Communist Latvia, Communist Estonia, and Communist Lithuania.

The flawed Obama Health Care Bill Socialized medicine & took control of 1/6th of the US economy, Obama turned over control of General Motors & Chrysler to unions on a silver platter with no hope of every recovering multibillion dollar government loans, he has given billions of taxpayer dollars to 7 bankrupt incompetent green energy companies owned by principals who made political donations to Obama’s Presidential campaign (Solyndra, Ener 1, Spectra Watt, Abound Power, Beacon Power, Eastern Energy, & Amonix Solar), he has added 590,000 public sector employees to an inefficient and bloated government bureaucracy bringing the number of employed civil servants to 2.15 million, while at the same time decreasing the size of the US military by 200,000 personnel when they are engaged in combat, and the Obama Administration is decreasing the DOD budget by $1 Trillion which Defense Secretary Panetta said “would gut our ability to defend ourselves”.  The Obama Socialized Welfare Program reversed the Clinton Work for Welfare Program that was getting so many people off of welfare, and for the first time in history, the Obama Administration has been advertising on public media for Americans to apply for food stamps, and has driven the annual cost of the Food Stamp program from $17 billion to $80 billion.

The Obama Administration Socialist policies has been creating an increasingly dependent class of Americans that pay no income taxes at all, get 90 weeks of unemployment, file for Social Security Disability when their 90 weeks of unemployment has run out, and are mirroring Greece’s dependent population rioting in the streets.  The left of center liberal media establishment ignores history’s lesson that Socialism has failed in every country it has ever been tried in, and continues to promote the poisonous seeds of class warfare emanating from the the Obama Administration.  The below listed article was posted on the Web site of The Conservative Club.

       "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."

Calling For Secure Borders

In light of what drug & human smugglers and potential terrorists are willing to do, it would seem that securing the US borders, as the nation did during WWII, would be one of the most pressing National Security issue facing the Republic.   The below listed letter from a retired US Border Patrol Officer's to Us Senator Frist should be a reality check for all clear thinking American citizens, and it should have motivated Congress to finally take action to secure the US Borders, but it has not.  Unfortunately, Congress continues its inaction on this issue; the attached video documents how “Drug Mules” jack up a border fence, in order to smuggle drugs into the US. 

Arizona took action to protect its border, and should have been supported by the current resident of the White House.  However, most recently the Obama Administration has decided to punish Arizona for being granted the right, by the US Supreme Court, to have Arizona Law Enforcement Officers check the identity of illegal immigrants during a lawful traffic stops to determine if they are illegal immigrants and if they are listed on ICE’s national data base of criminal elements.  The Department of Homeland Security has been directed to prevent Arizona Law Enforcement Officers from working closely with ICE as they have in the past, when they used to check the identity of illegal immigrants to determine if they were potential terrorists, drug cartel smugglers, repeat criminal offenders intent on preying on Arizona residents, human smugglers, or in the US illegally when they were legally stopped during a traffic violation.  The Justice Department, at the direction of the current occupant of the White House, is intent on preventing the US Supreme Court’s ruling from becoming effective, and Attorney General Eric Holder has threatened to file suit against Arizona Law Enforcement Officers for civil rights violations to impede and/or overturn the US Supreme Court ruling.


Our nation continues to consume incredible quantities of heroin and other narcotics, thereby funding terrorism and transnational gangs that include some of the Mexican Cartels.  By not securing the nation’s borders we are unable to stop the flood of narcotics into our country, and by not effectively combatting drug use and drug addiction in the United States, we have, in a manner of speaking, become our own worst enemy.

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and other members of the Obama Administration including the President, himself, insist that the borders have never been more secure!  On May 10, 2011, President Obama went to the city of El Paso, Texas and mocked those who wanted our borders to finally be made secure.  Fox News reported on the President’s remarks including his assertion that those who want our borders made more secure would never be happy and might even demand that a moat be constructed and that alligators be put in that moat.

Border Patrol Officer's letter 

This letter was sent to Tennessee Senator Bill Frist by a retired border  patrol agent, and it has more common sense than recent comments made in the US Senate, with the exception of a some sensible comments made by a few representatives.

Dear Senator Frist:

There is a huge amount of propaganda and myths circulating about illegal aliens, particularly illegal Mexican, Salvadorian, Guatemalan and Honduran aliens.

#1. Illegal aliens generally do NOT want US citizenship. Americans are very vain thinking that everybody in the world wants to be a US citizen.  Mexicans, and other nationalities want to remain citizens of their  home countries while obtaining the benefits offered by the United States such as employment, medical care, instate tuition, government subsidized housing and free education for their offspring. Their main attraction is employment and their loyalty usually remains at home.  They want benefits earned and subsidized by middle class Americans. What illegal aliens want are benefits of American residence without paying the price. 

#2. There are no jobs that Americans won't do. Illegal aliens are doing jobs that Americans can't take and still support their families. Illegal aliens take low wage jobs, live dozens in a single residence home, share expenses and send money to their home country. There are no jobs that Americans won't do for a decent wage.

 #3. Every person who illegally entered this nation left a home. They are NOT homeless and they are NOT Americans. Some left jobs in their home countries. They come to send money to their real home as evidenced by the more than 20 billion dollars sent out of the country each year by illegal aliens. These illegal aliens knowingly and willfully entered this nation in violation of the law and therefore assumed the risk of detection and deportation. Those who brought their alien children assumed the responsibility and risk on behalf of their children.

#4. Illegal aliens are NOT critical to the economy. Illegal aliens constitute less than 5% of the workforce. However, they reduce wages and benefits for lawful US residents.

 #5. This is NOT an immigrant nation. There are 280 million native born Americans. While it is true that this nation was settled and founded by immigrants (legal immigrants), it is also true that there is not a nation on this planet that was not settled by immigrants at one time or another.

 #6. The United States is welcoming to legal immigrants. Illegal aliens are not immigrants by definition. The US accepts more lawful immigrants every year than the rest of the world combined.

#7. There is no such thing as the "Hispanic vote." Hispanics are white, brown, black and every shade in between. Hispanics are Republicans, Democrats, Anarchists, Communists, Marxists and Independents. The so-called "Hispanic vote" is a myth. Pandering to illegal aliens to get the Hispanic vote is a dead end.

#8. Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States . Since 1848 Mexicans have resented the United States . During World War I Mexico allowed German Spies to operate freely in Mexico to spy on the US . During World War II Mexico allowed the Axis powers to spy on the US from Mexico. During the Cold War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the US to operate freely. The attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 was cheered and applauded all across Mexico . Today Mexican school children are taught that the US stole California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. If you don't believe it, check out some Mexican textbooks written for their school children.

#9. Although some illegal aliens enter this country for a better life, there are 6 billion people on this planet. At least 1 billion of those live on less than one dollar a day. If wanting a better life is a valid excuse to break the law and sneak into America, then let's allow those one billion to come to America and we'll turn the USA into a Third World nation overnight. Besides, there are 280 million native born Americans who want a better life. I'll bet Bill Gates and Donald Trump want a better life. When will the USA lifeboat be full? Since when is wanting a better life a good reason to trash another nation?

#10. There is a labor shortage in this country. This is a lie. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of American housewives, senior citizens, students, unemployed and underemployed who would gladly take jobs at a decent wage.

#11. It is racist to want secure borders. What is racist about wanting secure borders and a secure America? What is racist about not wanting people to sneak into America and steal benefits we have set aside for legal aliens, senior citizens, children and other legal residents? What is it about race that entitles people to violate our laws, steal identities, and take the American Dream without paying the price? For  about four decades American politicians have refused to secure our borders and look after the welfare of middle class Americans. These politicians have been of both parties. A huge debt to American society has resulted. This debt will be satisfied and the interest will be high.  There has already been riots in the streets by illegal aliens and their supporters. There will be more. You, as a politician, have a choice to offend the illegal aliens who have stolen into this country and demanded the rights afforded to US citizens or to offend those of us who are stakeholders in this country. The interest will be steep either way.
There will be civil unrest. There will be a reckoning. Do you have the  courage to do what is right for America ? Or, will you bow to the wants and needs of those who don't even have the right to remain here?
There will be a reckoning.

It will come in November of this year. We will not allow America to be stolen by third world agitators and thieves.

David J. Stoddard US Border Patrol (RET) Hereford, Arizona

Please pass this letter on to everyone you know, including your 
Senators and Congressmen. We must do something about this serious problem NOW!

The Out of Control and Reckless Spending by an Irresponsible Administration and Congress

Before we endorsed a Combat Veteran For Congress we ask them if they approve of and would agree to support our Mission Statement.  One of the precepts in the Mission Statement is to “rein in the out of control spending by Congress.”  Since 2009, we have endeavored to encourage Congress to rein in their reckless and out of control spending that has severely undercut the fiscal stability of the Republic over the last 25 years.  With the support of the Congress, the Obama Administration continues to shift the burden of repayment of $17+ trillion in debt onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.  We encourage you to click on the below listed link, to view and listen to Pierre Poilievre, a member of Canada’s Parliament, as he recounts how the US Congress recklessly continues to damage the security and financial stability of the Republic, and how he commends Canada’s leadership for not following the unsound and reckless example of the Obama Administration and the US Congress.

Very soon, we will again witness the lack of leadership of both parties in Congress, they will soon demonstrate their continued irresponsibility and lack of courage by putting off the vote to increase America’s debt limit, until after the November election, when they will again raise it.  That action will sustain Congress’ continued reckless fiscal policy, and will again, by their vote to permit the Obama Administration to incur more annual debt on the backs of American taxpayers than the nation will be able to generate in the Gross National Product.  That debt this year, for the first time in US history,  will exceed the annual Gross National Product of the Republic---that is the definition for bankruptcy for any individual or business. 

One other important point that is worth looking at, in order to clear up misinformation that has been emanating from the Obama Administration.  On page 7 of the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office’s review of 2008 and 2009 income/tax distribution in the US, it was reported that the top 20% of income earners in the United States are paying 94% of all the income tax revenue received by the federal government.  The lowest 40% of earners actually have an average income tax rate of below 0.  The lowest quintile is “taxed” at a rate of –9%, while the second lowest quintile is “taxed” at a rate of –2%.  Perhaps you will recall the frequently promoted talking point by the resident of the White House that there is an “income gap” between the “1%” and everyone else, and how the top 1% are not paying their fair share?  Well, that was mainly because the data used for that flawed discussion by the Obama campaign was taken from 2007 fiscal figures, when the republic was at the height of the boom, just as the Pelosi controlled Congress took over the financial reins.  As it turns out, those numbers were as fleeting as the real estate bubble. From 2007-2009, the income of the “top 1%” has actually dropped by 36%.  In addition, if the government took “all” the income (not just increased their taxes) of the top 1% earners in the country it would only fund the bloated and out of control government bureaucracy for 8 and ½ days---that is another dishonest and misleading presentation put forth by the resident of the White House to continue to generate class warfare and to further divide the American people—something no other President has ever done.

We encourage you to forward this message to all those in your address book who support the goal of reining in the irresponsible and out of control spending by the Congress.  In order to help fund that out of control spending and borrowing, the Obama Administration imposed the largest tax increase in history on “all” Americans by enacting the flawed Obama Health Care Bill.  Instead of cutting spending, and rooting out all fraud and abuse in a bloated out of control and expanding government bureaucracy, the Obama Administration gave the American people the largest tax increase in US History, and will continue to borrow and spend the Republic beyond bankruptcy.   The below listed quote of the decade should be of interest to all:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

                              ~ Senator Barack H. Obama,  March 2006

Happy Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is also the birthday of every American Patriot; it is also “your” birthday each year.  When the opportunity presents itself, I encourage you to thank a Veteran for their service, and wish them a Happy Second Birthday on annual celebration of the “The Birth of The Nation”.  The vast majority of Veterans are respectful, hard-working, family oriented, and unassuming true American Patriots; for over 236 years Veterans have been an important part of the fabric that is the foundation of the Republic.   At one point in their life, a Veteran wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their life.”  We all know of military personnel who have given the last full measure of devotion to the Republic; and as you know, others have been seriously wounded and will be suffering with those disabling injuries for the remainder of their lives.  If more members of Congress were as dedicated to protecting and defending the US Constitution and to watching out for the welfare of the Republic as American Veterans have sworn to do, the Republic probably wouldn’t be in the very serious financial difficulty it finds itself in today because of the irresponsible out of control spending by Congress. 


 Americans Just Don't Understand Their Military

 The originator of the email forwarding this discussion called it an excellent piece of work, to which I add an Amen. Unfortunately, as happens too often, it arrives without credit to its author. What a damned shame.

They know what it means to serve: Acceptance

into West Point, or any military academy, is far from

easy to earn. Unfortunately, far too many Americans

don't comprehend what drives young men and women

to seek admission, or to enter the military under any

officer or enlisted program.

Americans don't understand what it means to serve

I remember the day I found out I got into West Point. My mom actually showed up in the hallway of my high school and waited for me to get out of class. She was bawling her eyes out and apologizing that she had opened up my admission letter. She wasn't crying because it had been her dream for me to go there. She was crying because she knew how hard I'd worked to get in, how much I wanted to attend, and how much I wanted to be an infantry officer. I was going to get that opportunity.

That same day, two of my teachers took me aside and essentially told me the following: Nick, you're a smart guy. You don't have to join the
military. You should go to college, instead.

I could easily write a tome defending West Point and the military as I
did that day, explaining that USMA is an elite institution, that separate from that it is actually statistically much harder to enlist in the military than it is to get admitted to college, that serving the nation is a challenge that all able-bodied men should at least consider for a host of reasons, but I won't.

What I will say is that when a 16-year-old kid is being told that attending West Point is going to be bad for his future then there is a dangerous disconnect in America , and entirely too many Americans have no idea what kind of burdens our military is bearing.

In World War II, 11.2% of the nation served in four years.

In Vietnam , 4.3% served in 12 years.

Since 2001, only 0.45% of our population has served in the Global War onTerror.

These are unbelievable statistics.

Over time, fewer and fewer people have shouldered more and more of the burden and it is only getting worse.

Our troops were sent to war in Iraq by a Congress consisting of 10% veterans with only one person having a child in the military.

Taxes did not increase to pay for the war. 

War bonds were not sold. 

Gas was not regulated. In fact, the average citizen was asked to sacrifice nothing, and has sacrificed nothing unless he has chosen to out of the goodness of his heart.

The only people who have sacrificed are the veterans and their
families. The volunteers. The people who swore an oath to defend this nation.

You stand there, deployment after deployment and fight on. You've
lost relationships, spent years of your lives in extreme conditions, years apart from kids you'll never get back, and beaten your body in a way that even professional athletes don't understand.

Then you come home to a nation that doesn't understand.

They don't understand suffering.

They don't understand sacrifice.

They don’t understand why we fight for them.

They don't understand that bad people exist.

They look at you like you're a machine - like something is wrong with
you. You are the misguided one -- not them.

When you get out, you sit in the college classrooms with political science teachers who discount your opinions on Iraq and Afghanistan because YOU WERE THERE and can't understand the macro issues they gathered from books because of your bias.

You watch TV shows where every vet has PTSD and the violent strain at that. 

Your Congress is debating your benefits, your retirement, and your pay, while they ask you to do more.

But the amazing thing about you is that you all know this. You know
your country will never pay back what you've given up.

You know that the populace at large will never truly understand or appreciate what you have done for them.

Hell, you know that in some circles, you will be thought as less than normal for having worn the uniform. But you do it anyway. 

You do what the greatest men and women of this country have done since 1775 -

YOU SERVED. Just that decision alone makes you part of an elite group.

LYONS: Bureaucracy Rules the Waves

The below listed article is an outstanding analysis of the flawed Law of the Seas Treaty (LOST) by Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr., USN (Ret).  LOST encompasses and takes control of economic and technology interests in all the oceans of the world, and will “REDISTRIBUTES WEALTH” from the developed to undeveloped nations, will restrict freedom of navigation, will impact the maritime security of the US Navy by establishing exclusive economic zones, will pre-empt the 2nd Amendment by allowing the confiscation of privately held firearms of all US citizen’s under this anti US Constitution UN Treaty mandate, and will suppress the Free Enterprise System by creating oppressive environmental regulations for the Republic.  The resident of the White House has agreed to do what no other US President has ever agreed to do; he has agreed to transfer islands off the coast of Alaska with the surrounding territorial oil rich waters that the United States has sovereignty over to Russia for no reason or for no compensation.  The United States sovereignty would be subjugated, in many of the oceans of the world, to the supernatural government that is chartered by the United Nations under the 1982 Convention.   Admiral Lyons thorough analysis discusses the flaws, dangers, and reasons why the United States Senate should not ratify the LOST Treaty.  Ratifying this LOST Treaty will not only take away the “Liberties and Freedoms” our Founding Father provided for us and our posterities 236 years ago, it will also give control of the oceans of the world covering 2/3rd of the earth’s surface to a small United Nations committee dominated by 41 land locked Third World Nations who have consistently opposed the votes of the United States in the United Nations.

The LOST Treaty is being aggressively pushed by the current resident of the White House, Senator John Kerry, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Senator Harry Reid in order to have it ratified before the November 2012 election by a lame duck Democratically controlled Senate; we watched that same play in in 2008 when the flawed Obama Health Care Bill was passed by a Democratic controlled Lame Duck Congress----the American voters can’t let that happened a second time, and they should hold every US Senator, regardless of party,  who votes for it, to be held to account and made to pay for supporting Socialism.    Kindly forward Admiral Lyon’s analysis to your US Senators and inform both of them that if they vote for ratification of the LOST Treaty, that you will oppose their reelection now or in the future when they stand for re-election.   The US Navy has been exercising “Freedom of Navigation” on the high seas for 236 years (the war of 1812 with Great Britain was fought to guarantee that freedom, now we have been provided with the names of Republican US Senators who are planning to vote to eliminate that precious freedom); the US does not need to seek the permission of a committee of Third World Nations in the UN to navigate the oceans of the world.

The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) Will Give Control of the Seas to a Committee in the UN Dominated by Third World Nations

No individual in their right mind would give control of 2/3rd of the earth’s surface to a small committee in the UN controlled by land locked Third World nations. That is the latest lame brained scheme being pushed by the Obama Administration.  The UN annually will charge the US untold millions of dollars for permits to do prospecting for seabed mineral mining, exploring and drilling for oil, and for fishing rights, as well as requiring payment of taxes on a percentage of the profits generated from the efforts of US firms involved in the Free enterprise system.  The US should be free to develop ocean resources as all nations have done for over 4000 years.  In addition the LOST Treaty will transfer islands and territory off the coast of Alaska, rich in oil to Russia.

We encourage all Americans who believe in the independence of the Republic and want to retain their freedoms as outlined in the US Constitution, to inform your US Senators that you strongly oppose the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST).   You and American citizens like you are the fundamental strength of this Republic, please pass this E-mail on to all those in your address book who will join you in opposing this LOST Treaty.   Your US Senator should be informed that the American voters want to retain the basic freedoms that our Founding Fathers gave us 236 years ago, we want to continue to be independent, and oppose being dominated by the UN.
