Obviously the numbers and issues differ…… but Reagan faces the issues of government regulation of industries, welfare spending, government special interest programs, and many more issues – and he places the individual as the priority.Very applicable to today’s world……
The Internet is the greatest organ of freedom the world has ever known. Even countries in revolution around the world have utilized it to share the inside scenes of government horrors. Now Obama is threatening to restrict such freedoms with a “kill switch”.
Not only is the whole “government can turn off the internet” a problem. The very fact that the United States government will have a hold on the internet will lead to regulation, and eventual politicization, of the internet. Regulations like those placed on Amazon.Com and other e-commerce hubs will seem normal when compared to content regulation and enforcement. In this process, the government will require constant monitoring programs to search the entire internet – including YOUR internet – for content that may or may not be against such regulation. From this step comes tyranny and the oppression of free speech.
Were the United States to go against a regime that supports internet control, such as the Obama presidency, they might specifically go after conservative, right-wing, or common sense organizations. The everyday American could have their blog, website or web business taken from them as specific messages are quelled. My blog could be shut down, and my content not seen by anyone – all because of a current event that was seen from a common sense view. News organizations like the Fox News website above might be shut down.
We must stop ANYONE from restricting the first amendment. It is specifically made to stop a large, controlling government (that may actually follow the Founding Fathers) from regulating or interfering with free speech. Spread the news to everyone, or you might not see online conservatism again….
The American Jobs Bill Text has finally come out! $450 billion taxpayer dollars, and 155 Pages of who knows what… don’t think that Congress wanted to read it, and that they might just “Pass it right away”, or “Right now”. READ IT
It was my birthday yesterday! My senior year of high school is beginning tomorrow – I will be researching current education reforms, teachings, and spending, and will post soon. Here are a couple of my past posts on Education, and other very informative posts.

China is a growing power, and they are rising in the face of the US recession. They are expanding militarily through the investment in aircraft carriers, cyberwarfare, and space infrastructure. Just this month they launched their first aircraft carrier – with plans on building their own carriers and navy. Many believe that China is looking back at neighboring Japan and Thailand, each of whom also have their own aircraft carriers. China has advanced cybernetics capabilities, as shown in multiple international attacks. The frequency of these attacks will undoubtedly increase with China’s expansion.
Satellites and space communication infrastructure is becoming a major issue with China. They have since began developing their own satellites, and are working on devices that can destroy them. Communications between satellites and the ground will enable for China’s greater efficiency, and for more information on troop logistics. They are also used to network between new air units that are creating the beginnings of a denied airspace over China….
Overall, China is disregarding the United States and going onto their own concerns. The United States is slowing imports, as we have a long ways to go on this recession. China is also beginning to see how much leverage they have with the foreign debt we owe to them. Finally, the leadership of Obama and the diplomacy of self-proclaimed loom Biden does not mean anything to Americans – why should it to China?
