Mark Borowski to @Skip Stein - "speaking" of yet another D-emoNcrat with the initials LBJ, the following repost "features" one of his "most famous quotes" "ENJOY" & feel free to copy-n-paste, pass along ...

……… A LOT of people have been drinking the spiked “democrat” Kool Aid again. Not only did the REAL Republicans force through the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments in the 19th century, they also founded about half dozen "black" colleges and created the NAACP.

The Republicans were not only the good guys in abolishing slavery in the US, but they were also the good guys during the civil rights movement and JFK (who voted against the '57 civil rights act) did nothing to help the blacks when being attacked by democrats during the civil rights movement until his non-action become an international embarrassment.  Only after the US was openly mocked in Pravda twice did he send the National Guard. Quote from LBJ (Democrat) as noted by his official biographer aboard Air Force 1..."We'll have those ni**ers voting democratic for the next two hundred years".

The chief characteristic and distinguishing feature of a Democracy is: Rule by Omnipotent Majority. In a Democracy, The Individual, and any group of Individuals composing any Minority, have NO protection against the unlimited power of The Majority. It is a case of Majority-over-Man. ( a tyrannical “MOBocracy” as it were )

A Republic, on the other hand, has a very different purpose and an entirely different form, or system, of government. Its purpose is to control The Majority strictly, as well as all others among the people, primarily to protect The Individual’s God-given, unalienable rights and therefore for the protection of the rights of The Minority, of all minorities, and the liberties of people in general.

The definition of a Republic is: a constitutionally limited government of the representative type, created by a written Constitution--adopted by the people and changeable (from its original meaning) ONLY by them only by its amendment--with its powers divided between three separate Branches: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. Here the term "the people" means, of course, the electorate.

BIG difference.  0bama Administration uses IRS to target conservative, Christian and pro-Israel organizations, donors, and citizens.

In an unprecedented attack on the First Amendment, the 0bama Justice Department ordered criminal investigations of FOX News reporters for doing their jobs during the 2012 election year.

pResident 0bama, throughout his Presidency, utterly refused to enforce long-established U.S. immigration laws. For example, . . .

More than 300,000 captured illegal aliens had been processed and were awaiting deportation. But, incredibly, 0bama stopped these deportations and ordered the U.S. border patrol to release many of these illegal aliens in violation of law and without explanation.

Congress rejected 0bama's so called DREAM ACT – which would have granted permanent residency to many illegal aliens. So 0bama enacted his own version of the DREAM ACT by Executive Order, thus directly defying Congress. According to 0bama's Executive Order, illegal aliens can stay in America if they are under the age of 30, have been in America for at least five years, are enrolled in school or have graduated from high school, and have committed no felonies.

0bama utterly refused to build a double-barrier security fence along the U.S.-Mexican border in direct violation of the 2006 Secure Fence Act. This law requires that "at least two layers of reinforced fencing" be built along America's 650-mile border with Mexico. So far, just 40 miles of this fence have been built – most of it during the Bush Administration.

0bama's unconstitutional assault on your Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  "king" Benito Insane Pin0cchi0-bama issued, in one day, 21 separate Executive Orders that attack and undermine your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Especially egregious is President 0bama's Executive Orders amending the 0bamaCare law to allow doctors and hospitals to investigate which patients own a gun. This outrageous Executive Order could allow the federal government to track and monitor law-abiding gun owners simply because they sought medical care.

0bama's assault on Christians and religious freedom.

0bama's Health and Human Services Department has, on its own (without Congressional approval), issued a mandate that all health insurance plans must include coverage for abortion-inducing drugs. As a result, pro-life employers and taxpayers are now effectively required by law to pay for abortions.

This mandate is a direct unconstitutional attack on the protections for freedom of religion and freedom of conscience in the First Amendment and the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  This mandate also directly violates the 0bamaCare law enacted by Congress, which prohibits any and all taxpayer funds from being used to pay for abortions.

0bama forced 0bamaCare on an unwilling public through bribery and lying about its cost. 0bama managed to secure passage of 0bamaCare by one vote in the Senate by bribing senators. He bribed Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska with the notorious "Cornhusker Kickback." He bribed Senator Mary Landrieu with the infamous $300 million "Louisiana Purchase."

In addition, 0bama knowingly and blatantly lied to America and to Congress about how much 0bamaCare would really cost. The cost of 0bamaCare to the American people over the next 10 years will not be less than $1 TRILLION, as 0bama promised in his nationally televised speech to the nation. Instead, the real cost of 0bamaCare to the Federal Treasury (actual taxpayer citizens) is $2.4 TRILLION, according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.

But the TRUE COST of 0bamaCare is more like $10 TRILLION when you factor in the cost to the states, the cost to individual Americans who are now required to purchase 0bama-approved health plans (the "Individual Mandate"), the cost of exploding health insurance premiums, the $716 BILLION 0bamaCare STEALS from Medicare, and the increased cost to businesses of complying with 0bamaCare mandates.

Operation Fast & Furious.

"Operation Fast & Furious" was the 0bama Administration's gun-running scheme that put thousands of American-made semi-automatic weapons in the hands of Mexican drug cartels and resulted in the death of at least one U.S. Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry.

0bama's "friend", & appointed Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress and the public, claiming he didn't know about his Justice Department's Fast & Furious operation.

Congress held Holder in contempt for defying Congressional subpoenas and refusing to turn over thousands of Justice Department documents on Fast & Furious. ( “Contempt of CONgress is MEANINGLESS because Eric Holder is still running around free, making more $MILLIONS off the backs of law-ABIDING Americans.) pResident 0bama asserted Executive Privilege to try to protect Holder. But for Executive Privilege to apply, 0bama would have had to have known about Fast & Furious, making the (former) President 0bama as culpable as Holder. Investigators suspect that Fast & Furious was an effort by the 0bama Administration to discredit lawful gun ownership in America by purposefully creating gun crimes, thus inducing public outcry for gun control. When it put thousands of semi-automatic weapons in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, the 0bama Justice Department KNEW these guns would be used to commit crimes, perhaps even kill some Americans. Then 0bama could say: "See how dangerous these guns are? We must ban them."

WITHOUT Congressional approval, 0bama gutted the work requirement for welfare recipients passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.

In the bailout of General Motors and Chrysler, 0bama illegally shortchanged bond holders in favor of Labor Unions, despite U.S. bankruptcy laws that specify that bond holders be first in line to be paid back.

Eager to use the killing of Osama bin Laden for political gain, 0bama exposed the identity and method of operation of the Navy SEALs team that conducted the operation in Pakistan, thus exposing its members to a lifetime of risk because they have been targeted for assassination by Islamists.

A short time after 0bama exposed the Navy SEALS' method of operation, 22 SEALs were shot down and killed in Afghanistan. It is a violation of law for the President or any American to reveal classified military secrets.

pResident 0bama established an extra-constitutional top secret "kill list" of people (including Americans) who can be summarily killed on sight – presumably by drones -- without due process. Once on 0bama's kill list, an American citizen can be targeted and executed on the opinion of a single government bureaucrat. BLATANTLY ILLEGAL. That's not how our legal system is supposed to work.

0bama Administration officials twisted the arms of defense contractors to not issue layoff notices in October of 2012 so as to avoid causing bad news for 0bama right before the election — even though federal law (the "WARN Act") requires such notices. ; Not only is this a violation of the WARN Act, it's also an unlawful use of federal officials for campaign purposes.

pResident 0bama intervened militarily in Libya in 2011 without the Congressional approval required by the War Powers Act.

0bama KNOWINGLY LIED to Congress and the American people about the killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya.  The President and his representatives repeatedly said an anti-Islamic video sparked a spontaneous uprising in Libya that resulted in the killings even though 0bama knew that the attack was a well-planned military-style assault by al Qaeda on the anniversary of September 11.

Next, ANOTHER D-isgusting waste of OUR taxpayer $ , >>>>Michelle/Michael 0bama's family trip to Africa in June of 2011, including a private safari at a South African game reserve, cost American taxpayers $424,000 for air travel alone. Mrs. 0bama brought along both her makeup artist and hairstylist, as well as her mother, a niece and nephew, and her ALLEGED daughters, who were listed as "senior staff members." [ END]
