The Internet
is a large-scale version of the "Committees of Correspondence"
that led to the first American Revolution – and with Washington’s
failings now so obvious and awful, it may lead to another.

People are
asking, "Is the government doing us more harm than good? Should
we change what it does and the way it does it?"

Pruning the
power of government begins with the imperial presidency.

Too many overreaching
laws give the president too much discretion to make too many open-ended
rules controlling too many aspects of our lives. There’s no end
to the harm an out-of-control president can do.

Bill Clinton
lowered the culture, moral tone and strength of the nation –
and left America vulnerable to attack. When it came, George W. Bush
stood up for America, albeit sometimes clumsily.

Barack Obama,
however, has pulled off the ultimate switcheroo: He’s diminishing
America from within – so far, successfully.

He may soon
bankrupt us and replace our big merit-based capitalist economy with
a small government-directed one of his own design.

He is undermining
our constitutional traditions: The rule of law and our Anglo-Saxon
concepts of private property hang in the balance. Obama may be the
most "consequential" president ever.

The Wall Street
Journal’s steadfast Dorothy Rabinowitz wrote that Barack Obama is
"an alien in the White House."

His bullying
and offenses against the economy and job creation are so outrageous
that CEOs in the Business Roundtable finally mustered the courage
to call him "anti-business." Veteran Democrat Sen. Max
Baucus blurted out that Obama is engineering the biggest government-forced
"redistribution of income" in history.

Fear and uncertainty
stalk the land. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke says America’s financial
future is "unusually uncertain."
