Obama Accelerates Statist AgendaPosted by Steve Elliott on January 26, 2009 at 12:35pm

.If there was ever any doubt that President Obama and the liberals in Congress are pushing a radical socialistic agenda, the last three days settled the debate.

Consider what has happened just since Friday:

--Liberals are now openly floating the idea of “nationalizing” our banks. We expect a formal announcement of the nationalization of banks to come AFTER Obama and the Democrats have the trillion dollar stimulus in their back pockets.

--Obama revoked the Reagan-era policy that prevented our tax dollars from funding abortions overseas… the first step towards implementing his radical abortion agenda.

--That same day, Obama directly attacked Rush Limbaugh and told Republicans in Congress to stop listening to Rush -- the first wave of attacks on conservative speech from this statist administration.

--Now Obama is demanding that we all agree to the trillion-dollar stimulus, which is nothing more than a blank check for liberals to expand government power!

--Democrats are stuffing the stimulus full of pork for liberal social programs, including “hundreds of millions” for birth control and family planning.

How is birth control an economic stimulus? According to Nancy Pelosi, babies are costly! Here’s the quote:

“Family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost.
The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of
what we do for children's health, education and some of
those elements are to help the states meet their financial
needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned,
the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the
federal government.”

Meanwhile, the liberal media and even some RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) are saying we shouldn’t oppose Obama’s agenda. Chris Matthews even challenged Rush Limbaugh's patriotism for daring to say he wanted Obama's socialistic agenda to fail.

Today (Monday), we are opposing the Geithner confimation (vote expected around 6pm). Tomorrow, we pick up the fight against the bogus stimulus package. Thanks for your patriotic resistance!
