At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

GIVE and Hijacking 9/11

It's not a new concept. 
It has been tried before ----->

The GIVE Act (Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act of 2009) provided $6 billion over five years to fund what is essentially "community organizing" for the Democratic Party. This is in addition to the $4 billion that ACORN received under the "Stimulus Package". The tidy sum of $10 billion is only a drop in the bucket when you look at all the little pork projects that have been individually funded for the benefit of forming the new ObamaNation.

The GIVE Act also funded a civilian security program provision that has not yet been implemented. Though people have said it's absurd that it would happen, in 2008, Mr. Obama said,
"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded." (during a Colorado Springs rally)
So to some extent we need to examine what Mr. Obama means by that. Obama supporters say that it means that we need to allow ordinary Americans to add to their own security by volunteering. Lee Cary of the American Thinker said, "Senator Obama aims to tap into the already active volunteerism of millions of Americans and recruit them to become cogs in a giant government machine grinding out his social re-engineering agenda... (His words) were about turning America into one, giant, community organizer's sandbox at enormous cost to the taxpayers."

My analysis: It all comes down to whether or not you trust Barack Hussein Obama.

In any event, you can celebrate 

Community Organizer's Day 
on September 11.

If everyone becomes a paid volunteer community organizer, there will be no unemployment! We could all work for ACORN!! We could all wear red shirts. It would be a Marxist utopia. And we'd have Dear Leader to thank for it.

Hitler had the same thing. I think you spell the German word as SS.

Arbeit Macht Frei, anyone?

I wouldn't be surprised if somebody had that in mind, BobG...but things haven't gone that far yet. It simply means that in 2010 we need to take back the legislature.
