Does this sound anything like the government we have today?
Or, does this sound like the government we have today?
The President and Congress spend trillions of dollars of taxpayer money in bailouts and stimulus to repay his supporters and determine winners and losers in the market place and business world. Winners play ball with Obama, losers go home broke…and at times, broken.

The President takes over automotive companies, ripping off investors and vendors, while repaying his Big Union boss contributors by giving them a slice of the companies.
In a feeding frenzy, he nationalizes business, industry, and financial intuitions, fires and hires managers and CEOs, and sets compensation for executives while warning of more to come. Does this sound like the U.S. government or Venezuela?
Healthcare disaster strikes our country when congress passes Obama’s idea of healthcare reform over the vehement objections of the American public. People are told lie upon lie in efforts to appease and soothe the open wounds left by a corrupt Congress and President. There is no doubt this was just one in a series of legislative maneuvers by this Congress and Administration to redistribute income. There is equally no doubt, this law will cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of American lives.
The refusal to enforce emigration law and protect our borders creates lawless, drug-infested areas in the Southwest where the Federal government resorts to placing signs warning people it is unsafe to travel in our own country.
It has become a test of wills between Obama, who wants amnesty for all illegals and their families to increase his power base, and the American people who believe in the rule of law and that borders are to be respected and gua...

...e pursuit of Happiness? Does this sound like a government responsible to the people or a people in fear of their government?
Today we gather to celebrate the birth of the greatest country is the history of mankind. If we do not act swiftly and decisively to reverse the downward spiral, we are in danger of losing everything our Founding Fathers created and passed to us and everything the brave men and women of our Armed Forces have fought and died for. We are losing the very soul of our nation.
In closing, I would like to thank all of you Veterans for your service and your sacrifice for our great land. Without you we could not be here.
We need a Congress like the Continental Congresses; dedicated to liberty.
Happy Birthday America!
It is time to proclaim a new Declaration of Independence…this time from our own government!
Now, let’s take back our country!!

Graduation Speech: No Day But Today

- Mrs. Meke told me never to start a paper with a dictionary definition, but it only seemed fitting to site Merriam Webster today. Graduation is the act of acceptance of an academic degree or diploma. Never have Merriam and Webster been more off their mark. Graduation is much more than a simple ceremony, it is the culmination of 12 years of work, friendships, and the little moments that still make us smile. High school was more than its name leads you to believe. It wasn’t just school, it taught us a whole lot more than how to write a good essay, who laid the foundation for communism, and why we all should despise geometry proofs....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Speech : Speech - My Speech

- For my “How to do” speech my goal was to share with the class an interesting and informative way to learn something new. Due to the speeches time limit, I knew I needed to be well prepared. I wanted to be less nervous before and during my speech. While presenting I was nervous, but I didn’t really have time for these feelings to sink in because I was focused on the information I wanted to share with the audience. I enjoyed presenting in the second group of speeches so I could see my peers different types of speaking style....   [tags: Graduation, Commencement speech, Speech]

Graduation Speech

- I agonized over writing this speech for a long time, because I felt like nothing I could say would make a difference, first because I don't know if what I could say would be good advice, and second because I don't know if advice about things like being true to yourself and setting goals and all that is actually helpful. How can I give advice that I can't even follow in my own life. And even if you are mesmerized for my two minutes, you would walk out of here and your life wouldn't be any different....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech

- Good evening parents, teachers, honored guests and soon to be graduates. My name is Ed Burrower, I'm the senior class president. A few weeks ago, I was told that I would be speaking at graduation. I was asked to put together a speech for tonight -- I've become experienced at speech writing over the past couple of weeks. The speech that you are hearing is the fourth one I've written, the recycle bin needs to be emptied at home and I need a new highlighter. Thank you, Mr. Mier, you get an "A+" for your help as my speech teacher but an "F" for saving trees....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech

- To the County High School Class of 2012: As you sit in front of me, I know what most of you are thinking at the moment. There are those who are already pondering about what life without high school will be like; those who are debating whether or not to tell your crush tonight about your whispers of adoration you’ve secretly held for four years; some simply want to get out of that ungodly chair, get that thing that isn’t really a diploma but only tells you when to pick up the thing, and then be the first one on the green bus to the grad party — you know who you are....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech

- Edgar Allan Poe once said, "All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream." The 13 years that I have spent attending school have quickly passed through my life as if a dream, much as I imagine it did Edgar Allan Poe. I can still remember my first day of school in Vietnam when I was five years old. Timid and scared, I held my mother's hand tightly, frightened that if I let go, I would lose her forever. My mother looked at me and said gently in Vietnamese: "Su hoc nhu thuyen tren dong nuoc nguoc....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech

- For some of you graduates, this will be the last ceremony you might ever sit through. Most of us, though, and I regret that I am in this group, will sit through many more ceremonies -- ceremonies longer and more tedious that this or anything else you can imagine. If you think this is bad, try a college graduation. Think, that is, attend a wedding. And, if just for a moment you think that that is bad, just be thankful you have never attended or will attend a Bar Mitzvah. The only ceremony I think anybody would truly enjoy attending is a funeral....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech

- Before I begin, I would like to tender my thanks to all of the people who have come here tonight. I would also like to apologize for what may seem an unorthodox speech, but I feel so strongly, that I must speak. Part I In the community of Emery, there can be found a danger that may at first seem imperceptible. It is not a danger that is commonly thought of as a danger. It is not the type of danger that can threaten your life, wreck your house or run over poor Fifi. No, it is more of the ethereal type, the type of danger that waits until you have passed and then stabs you in the back....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech

- I rediscovered something while trying to think of my speech for tonight. History repeats itself. Everything I felt compelled to say I knew has been said before and will be said in times to come. I grew dismayed at the thought that the human race has progressed so little that the same advice has as much merit now as it did when it was first given, millenniums ago. Yet there is a simple beauty in this. It reassures us that humans will always be human; that everyone is experiencing life for the first time, no matter how many ancestors lie before them....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]
