In my email, I said the state of our Union is strong, despite 9.4% unemployment, trillion dollar deficits, politicians attacking the entrepreneurial spirit, and decreasing freedoms.

Here’s why: the reasons for optimism far exceed these short-term challenges.

On November 2, the American people – led by a Tea Party movement of principled, constitutional conservatives – rose up and, with a unified voice, rejected the business-as-usual approach in Washington that has taken our country off course. On that day, we won the first battle in a long war for the heart and soul of our country. This year, the war moves from elections to policy.

Heritage Action for America was created to be your principled, conservative voice in Washington. Like our sister organization, The Heritage Foundation, we are in Washington, but we are not of Washington. We are not here to enrich ourselves at the taxpayers’ expense; rather, we are here to make sure the electoral victories you achieved at the ballot box are translated into conservative policy victories.

It is, sometimes, a lonely fight. As you know, anybody who has “big” in front of their name has their interests taken care of in our nation’s capital. Big Labor, Big Business, Big Government… the list goes on.

Yet, the great idea that we all care so deeply about – America – is not about protecting the powerful. It is about providing opportunity for an entrepreneur to start a company and create a better life for his children. It is about individuals solving problems by donating their time, money and energy to churches, charities, and schools within their community. It is about a parent who finds fulfillment in life by raising a family and fighting for her children to have the same opportunities in life that she had.

These concepts may be punch lines in our nation’s universities, newsrooms and boardrooms, but they are near and dear to you and me. They are the reason America is exceptional among the countries of the world and worth fighting to preserve.

So thank you for allowing us to take a step back from the day-to-day battles of Washington, which Heritage Action was created to fight. There will be plenty of time for us to stand shoulder-to-shoulder in fighting them. Despite the setbacks our nation has endured over the last several years and decades, the state of our Union is strong because we are committed to making it so.

Sincerely,

Michael A. Needham
Chief Executive Officer
Heritage Action for America

  1. I don’t believe there will be another national election.
    Obama signed the P.E.O in Jan 2010 which gives him the authority to declare martial law and if neede to bring to this country military and mercenaries from other countries to quell disturbances that are going to be generated to keep him in office as a dictator.

    • Not in this Country, he won’t! Too many of us are ready and willing to fight to bring this country back to the Constitution, even if, in the end, it means taking arms. No foreign mercenaries will enter our borders without paying dearly. I truly believe if it came to that, our military will stand to their oath to the Constitution before they would allow such to happen, as well!

      • The military follows orders. Look what happened to the Col. that tried to verify the validity of his orders. But I hope you are right!

        • George- the military will soon be taking orders from the restored Republic! A much better way to run a country. My vision of the future is bright.

      • Stop the flagrant waste of money for health care. Save ONE TRILLION DOLLARS . Stop the the health care insurance rationing by the robber-barons. Stop the start of needless wars that destroy our military assets. Stop the high taxes for the middle class. Tax the rich. Stop the robber barons from taking our jobs, our industry to China and spending their profits to poison our politics. Stop the Papist US Supreme Court. Preserve Common Law. Oust the natural law crackpots on the US Supreme Court. End deductions for foundation-creation. Tax contributions to Confederate (Republican) think-tanks. Send peopel who want to wear the confederate gray to UTAH and fence UTAH with a wall and keep the robber barons and their lackeys (YOU) there (UTAH) for life.

        • Christian America?? By this statement, we can not have an America by this standard and this statement is not christianity. The ground is level at the Cross of Jesus Christ and every thing that a Christian states must come from the Holy Scriptures and not from how we feel!! One nation under God, not one Nation under our Feelings!

          • so true! but also we are americans first not color of americans. what i mean is see how when you have to fill out papers and they ask you what you are such as asian american
            white american and so on and so on see it should be american asian, american white american muslim american christian see. we are all americans first

        • The way Obama and ALL of his czars have treated our warriors they will NEVER stand behind him. He knows that and that is the only reason he has not already taken action. The reason he was so upset when the “prez” of that country(?) where they removed him because he went against the constitution and stayed in office, by mititary force was because he saw his future and knew it!!

      • The “foreign mercenaries” that could come into our country to “restore order”, will come under the disguise of the UN. Check out all the presidential ‘executive orders’. Decree’s that didn’t require a vote by anyone. Fema can institute Martial Law at the drop of a hat. UN personnel can be used to quell riots, etc.
        We’re losing our country and fast.

        • Republican politicians must be carefully chosen. We cannot risk the election of another George W. Bush who instituted along with Ted Kennedy No Child Left Behind placing the White House in our classrooms. Who established the Dept. of Homeland Security who is now implementing TSA searches against the 4th amendment guaranteeing privacy of person, in addition to calling constitutionist Americans terrorists. President Bush who gave the order to disarm Americans in their homes in New Orleans in addition to adding a massive entiltlement program to the national debt without a thought of paying for it. How about the creating the Transatlantic Economic Counsel with the EU, “deeper transatlantic economic integration” circumventing the treaty process in the Senate or passed by law in Congress. Or the undermining of national sovereignty of the US through the North American Union initiatives with Canada and Mexico (SPP, NACC). I particularly disliked TARP, which brought us the lovely “too big to fail” venacular that successfully laid down the framework for the rest of the Obama bailouts that successfully took over private industry…I’m just saying, I really think we need to vet our next constitutional Republican conservative presidential candidate. What say you?

      • I too agree that our military will disobey any such orders and back the people of ther U.S. in an effort to save America. I am Retired Army, 76 years young and will die before this invation takes place.

      • James, you are the one who needs a life. No one, and I mean no one will take my rights away without the biggest fight they could imagine. It would be a much better country if idiots like you felt the same way. Were George Washington and the continental army whackos, hell no they were not. They fought, suffered and died for their country, and against dictators, and for our rights to be free.

      • James, I agree with what John said. you are the one that needs to get a life. Republicans and Democrats have been selling us down the river for years, but we have awaken. If there aren’t changes made by the Voting Booth, there will be another Revolution in this Country. I might be old, but I will protect me and mine. You better wake up and see what has been done to your rights.

      • Wake Up James…its happening all around you.
        Now they want to claim state bankruptcy, effectively wiping out the pensions of state workers who worked their whole lives at lower wages than the private sector, just so they knew they’d have some financial security when they retired.
        We’re being told that inflation is under control, but food prices and gas prices are skyrocketing. We’re printing money at breakneck speed, our national debt is at a point where it will be just about impossible to ever pay it back. They took us off the gold/silver money standard and now you can buy $500 face value of pre 1964 us coins (90% silver) for almost $11,000 on ebay. What does that tell you folks? (Besides being time to look in the basement for those old coin collections)

    • James, your comment about the P. E. O. giving Obama the powers you outlined I assume is accurate? If so it is just another in a long line or powers that this President has initiated behind the one way mirror through his Czar’s and other power people he listens to. To add to your information is a bill that will require every Internet user to have an identification card or number and allow the governments central data system to monitor everything you do on the Internet. It also gives them access to just about everything you have on your computer. This, like many other things, are being put on the side track therefore either bypassing Congress completely or bypassing the public’s knowledge of its existance until it is too late.

      • He’s been abusing his power since taking office. It’s time to stop him and I pray we get it done soon. This nation will be totally amazed if it can ever be proven he’s not a legitimate president. I’ll never believe he is. It’s been said, he received a foreign grant for education and he stated when running for Congress his birthplace. Ummmm????

        If the mainstream media would really do their job correctly, we could possibly get more aware of what’s really going on.

        God Bless America!! In God We Trust!

    • Let him do it and he will witness the mother of all wars and for the mercenaries that are stupid enough to come for the pay, we will mutilate them in the worst manners! It is time to hit the refresh button on this planet!

    • What P.E.O. are you referring to? Any President can declare martial law if there is an insurrection. But why even go there? We won on the political battlefield and now we must fight on the legislative and informational fronts. Obama has gone as far as he has because people are underinformed. Most don’t realize what they have lost under Obamacare and Dodd-Frank. We need to let them know in community meetings and in conversations. Let’s talk to more than just other conservatives and get outside of our silo with the vast amounts of knowledge we have. Then we will let the collectivists defeat themselves. Remember last year when the more Obama talked about HC, the worse his numbers got? Once his precious law is in trouble, he will repeat the same because he can’t help himself.

    • While I agree that our fearless leader will push his best spin about the state of our Union, I fear that his act is slight of hand in making us take our eye off the ball of what else he is doing to us. With so much talk about current events, this administration seems to be unchallenged in its czarist philosophy to completely dismantle our entire bureaucracy and turn it into an indestructible 5th estate. No one is reporting what is really going on relative to administrative oversight and against our dwindling list of freedoms. I do not care how centrist Obama becomes in the media – our problem is a world class fight to the finish for our very way of life. Sadly they have two more years to practice their craft and it is here that we desperately need more oversight of our own.

    • Our union is weak. Until we stop spending we can become strong again. We need to get rid of these bureaucracies such as the FDA, EPA, HHS, IRS, and more. They are the unelected officials or I call it the shadow government that is destroying this nation. They take up a huge amount of our budget. They are unconstitutional, they violate amendments 9 and 10, they usurp powers from the congress. I believe a seed has been planted to restore our republic just like a progressive seed that was planted a 110 years ago to destroy it.

  2. I don’t believe there will be another national election.

  3. We have always been a strong and powerful nation, when we have principled leadership. We have taken a real left turn lately and it’s nigh on time we did something about it. VOTE THEM ALL OUT. Rebulld, Renew and Restore us to the greatness we ARE. But it will take massive effort and guidance both from Honest people and the grace of GOD.

    • I agree, we have been a very strong nation despite our leadership. It is time to do a thorough cleaning of the Senate….the House has revived itself temporarily. It is just a beginning, but we should vote them all out, especially the “good old boys” that should have gone a long time ago. Term limits should also be set. Perhaps an ammendment could be made concerning that…don’t expect miracles to happen…..sometimes, in order to succeed, we have to make own. It is just the beginning, and we do have work to do….alot of it. Also, after we have eliminated the SOURCE, how about going after more failed programs??!!

      • The best way to firmly establish term limits is for the voters to force the issue, and simply disallow any retirement from political service! First, of course, we must elect true representatives of the people.

        • The best term limits are an educated involved electorite.
          There are more of us than them.
          We simply need to pay attention, educate yourself on the Constitution and go to the polls for the Primary as well as the General election.
          With communication what it is today we are going to get government back in it’s Constitutional Cage.

          If you want to start a movement I think one that promotes the concept of finding a Republican Canditate for President in 2012 who has not run before. (Pass It On)

    • Absolutely, we’ve only just begun to Renew, Rebuild and Restore with the 2010 election. Let’s continue the positive energy and passion we’ve acquired to propel us forward. It will be by our united strength as a nation and by the grace of God that we will come back stronger than before.

      May God bless the United States of America!

  5. I agree for all the reasons you’ve given. And it’s the basis for optimism. As a member of the Staten Island Tea Party I actively participated in a congressional campaign which resulted in our freshman’s upset victory. While it was a first for me, it won’t be my last. Keep up the fight; we’re all energized!

    • Response to Michael Needham’s article. If you say you have a problem it always puts it in a negative category. If you say you have a solution to the problem you usually put that on the positive side. Mr. Smith goes to Washington is seen by the establishment as the most naive solution to correcting governments problems there is. Until we find a Mr. Smith to go to Washington or dig up Ronald Reagen or find another like him we won’t see much changing in Washington. A more positive approach and one that would get better results is what the people of this country just did. Stack the deck with so many conservitives in the House and the Senate that nothing gets passed unless it meets the test of the people’s choice.

      • Mr. Smith does need to go to Washington, however, he will not be an individual but a super majority just as the Democrats recently enjoyed. Couple this with a Ronald Reagan deciple in the White House and the Republic could be restored in short order. Furthermore, rules and procedure changes could be enacted that would ensure the type of bad governance that has manifested itself from the progressives & cronie capitalist would never gain a choke hold again. For this to happen, everyone who supports this vision must make the effort to vote in both the primary and general elections. Also make the effort to persaude anyone who shows the slightest interest to do likewise. It’s that hard & it’s that simple.

      • Recently I heard President Reagan’s son say something to the effect of ..”We do not need to look for another Reagan. If we keep trying to do that we may miss a great leader.” I found this to be very wise. Reagan was the right man for when he was Governor, President and although MUCH of what he spoke of and lived by is still so true today we need to find our leaders of today and be open to their manner of fighting for the Constitution, and liberty instead of looking for another ” Reagan” .

  7. For the first time in my life, I am not proud to be an American. Our kowtowing, apologist president has made the U.S. a laughing stock. Our arrogant Congress has made us a debtor nation. Unenforced laws are making our border states unsafe for legal citizens. Czars and unelected bureaucrats now rule our lives. Ordinary citizens feel impotent in the face of such tyranny as entitlements and pork in our national budget drain away our devalued currency. I can only hope that some sanity can be restored by a new crop of legislators who understand “jihad” and the dangers of judges compliant with sharia law.

    • We have a great country but we do not have great representation from this Administration, Congress or the Senate. While “we the people” stand strong, we have to fight a media that has no objectivity at their core. We have to fight the constant stream of opinions that spew forth in all areas of media. The battle has to be every election and in every state. It has to be won as a grassroots effort with candidates that are vetted by the people because in many cases we do it better. Our hope is in not being complacent or apathetic. Our hope is in calling or e-mailing our elected officials consistently. This administration does want to take over – the progressives/democrats have wanted to do this for a long time and they won’t stop. We need to watch what is being taught our children and grandchildren, we need to be mindful of everything. If we are not, we lose the greatest country on earth to a band of elitist extreme liberals who espouse an ideology that the majority of Americans would call a dictatorship of one party rule. Before more of our freedoms are taken away, please stay aware and responsive or we lose the battle to save this once great nation.

      • MaggieNJ… it looks like Christie is trying to address the schools… also spending. Perhaps we can get him to eliminate county governments. That would save us tax dollars.

    • We have no Congress or Senate,we have an illegal sitting in the whitehouse as far as we can determine for all his footprints have been covered up for his 50 years on this earth! Turn on C-Span and you can readily see where our prolem lies! Yep, it’s all those suits and neckties that steal our sustenance and lie to us while they will not go away and seek real employment! They have no answers for they are stupid for the most part! Look at any one of them and think of the populace they represent and you have all your answers!

While “we the people” stand strong, we have to fight a media that has no objectivity at their core. We have to fight the constant stream of opinions that spew forth in all areas of media. The battle has to be every election and in every state. It has to be won as a grassroots effort with candidates that are vetted by the people because in many cases we do it better. Our hope is in not being complacent or apathetic. Our hope is in calling or e-mailing our elected officials consistently. This administration does want to take over – the progressives/democrats have wanted to do this for a long time and they won’t stop. We need to watch what is being taught our children and grandchildren, we need to be mindful of everything. If we are not, we lose the greatest country on earth to a band of elitist extreme liberals who espouse an ideology that the majority of Americans would call a dictatorship of one party rule. Before more of our freedoms are taken away, please stay aware and responsive or we lose the battle to save this once great nation.

      • MaggieNJ… it looks like Christie is trying to address the schools… also spending. Perhaps we can get him to eliminate county governments. That would save us tax dollars.

    • We have no Congress or Senate,we have an illegal sitting in the whitehouse as far as we can determine for all his footprints have been covered up for his 50 years on this earth! Turn on C-Span and you can readily see where our prolem lies! Yep, it’s all those suits and neckties that steal our sustenance and lie to us while they will not go away and seek real employment! They have no answers for they are stupid for the most part! Look at any one of them and think of the populace they represent and you have all your answers!

  9. I truly believe that our Country is now on the right track to becoming #1 again. We have to stay strong and try to get past all the outrageous bashing from the left. We have to stick to truths and not let phoney rhetoric trick us in to doing dumb things. If our new Congressman and Senators stick to what they promised, I have great hopes for our future. We The People also need to continue to support our Principles, Constitution, our Country in one way or another. We need to hold our elected officials to their word and not let go. They need us and we need them. God Bless America and God Bless Our Patriotic Leaders who are willing to fight for our Country with their expertise and Love for the people and our traditions. Also…God Bless our Service men and woman who are protecting us every day and keeping us FREE. Thank You All!

  11. The idea of Republicans and Democrats sitting together for this joke has been tossed around.
    I still feel we should seat them by corporate sponsors. Maybe we could call it “THE G.E. THUNDERDOME”

    • “HOW SWEET” We sit together and sing “I WOULD LIKE TO BUY THE WORLD A C0KE”! They always worry about a nuke hitting Washington, if there were a God in heaven it would happen,”SOON”!

      • Norm, I provoke you respectfully, I agree that if a nuke hit Washington we would need to have people ready to keep order in our Nation, but why are you saying there is no God, see, this is the core problem with America, we have left our first love and think we can do this without help from heaven!! Don’t get me wrong, Ecclesiastes sayes there is a time for War and a time for Peace, I will fight for this Nation even if that means giving of my life, and I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ who is sitting at the right hand of the Father even as I write this note.

  13. Never believe the Union is strong without taking into consideration the PEOPLE. We are as strong as our people. With education dwindling and folks more interested in Dancing with the Stars than what we are facing as a Nation, it’s easy to be disgruntled. Time to educate about our Founders, our religious basis and natural law. From GOD..

  15. We need to support those that we have elected to office this past November. We need to continue to communicate with them the will of the people, not the will of the elitest who have lost all concept of reality, and what we the people struggle and deal with every day. If things continue down the path that this current administration is taking us, we the people will have to riase up and take back this country from those who do not know, or care about the constitution that they trample and spit on daily with the laws of intitlement that they continue to base for themselves at the exspense of our country. Enough is Enough. The people have told them what we want and don’t want, but they continue to do whatever gives them the power, control, and money. We have resources here in our country that would free us from the enslavement to oil rich countries. But are we doing anything to throw off those chains? No! Again I say enough is enough. We the people need to clean house. We need to start with the federal goverment all the way down to the local goverments. We need to clean house. If an agency is deemed unconstitutional we get rid of it. Cut the waste, cut the duplication of things, and bring this once great country back to the design of our founding fathers. Thank you

  17. I would like to agree with Jim Aberdeen but I do not believe the $14 Trillion debt will let it be done.
    That size debt is more than the US can repay now. We have shipped all our manufacturing to foreign soil. We have almost no clothing mfgrs, shoe mfgrs, most all technical products are made overseas. We have almost nothing to help us build up. The dollar will loose all of it’s value, we will be spending all our time trying to get our next meal, to stay warm, etc.
    That debt will not go away! China owns us.
    I expect us to end up a poor third world or worse dictatorship.
    We can fight and one person who predicted all this during the campaign predicted that also.
    Even if we win, that debt is still there.

  19. We are strong! That strength is within the hearts and souls of the people outside the beltway. Over 80% of the people believe that Griffen’s progress is because of prayer. Wow! That is the best news I have heard in a long time and that alone brings me hope.

    But everyone in the Distric of Columbia who works for teh federal government – from congress to the halls of every federal office building do not share that same heart and soul.

    The federal workforce has contempt for the people they serve. They have wasted our grandchildren’s future for their own wealth and privilage. The greater DC area has pilfered the wages of the American people for their own ends. Their household incomes risen by 36% while the people they draw their very high incomes from went down by 5%.

    This is not good news. We need to stop the federal workforce greed for power and wealth on our backs if we can become financially strong.

    We need to reduce federal spending and get public control over the federal workforce. We want TOTAL accountability over the federal workforce by a completely separate governing body not connected to federal spending or benefits.

    We are a strong people but we exist in a weak economy and a morally weak government. Our strength within our hearts is greater than the moral weakness in DC, but we need to hurry to fix DC, before that evil consumes the country.

    • Audit the Federal Reserve, get us out of the United Nations and get it off our soil! Quit borrowing money to give to nations that hate our guts(AT INTEREST) with no hope of anything ever being repayed let alone paying the note or interest on it then telling the American people that it is their debt! Quit tryingto tell the world what to do and being the policeman for the world! Charity starts at home first!

      • Pretty close, Norm, but the words should be: “Eliminate the Federal Reserve”. Getting out of the UN is also necessary……they vote against us over 70% of the time, and we flood their countries with money never to be repaid. Does anyone realize what good we could do for ourselves with all those hundreds of millions of dollars? Dispense with the PC and start looking after ourselves. Once charity is mandated, it’s no longer charity.

  23. The people have been awakened, but the progressives push forward with their intended methods, e.g., causing chaos and discrediting their “enemies”, a term used by our president to describe conservatives. The national debt cannot be reigned in and will devalue our dollar much further. I am not optimistic that we can stop the impending financial collapse of this nation. I pray that I am wrong, but this has been the plan and agenda of progressives for decades. They are so close to succeeding. If Obama has a second term, he will ensure they do. We must elect a conservative president if we are to have any chance at all.

  25. This NEW thought from the left that both parties should kiss and hold hands during the state of the union address is ridiculous! Was there not a statement made from the magnificent one before the election, in his idiotic car in the ditch speech, which it was now their turn to drive and the republican could ride but in the back! So now that circumstances are reversed everyone should play nice? We need the issues addressed not kumbaya! We need the representatives’ to get done what WE sent them there to do! To return America back to its once greatness no more scratching each others backs, the American Citizens have spoken…that is whom they need to satisfy!

  27. I think the position you take is wishful thinking. I don’t think that enough Americans are willing to take the sacrifices that will be necessary in order to turn our fortunes around. Everyone says that they are behind the people who are ready to make the sacrifices, until they realize that they are going to have to give up something major. Then – they aren’t so sure that they want to participate!

    • John, I’m not as skeptical as you yet, but I’m close. Once you start giving “free stuff” to people, they get weak and you’re going to have a hell of a fight on your hands taking it away from them. But, that’s what needs to happen. To Congress: stop playing the compromise games and start taking it away. The pain and vitriol from the left will be relentless…….”conservatives don’t care”…..”tea party nazis”…..”typical right wing haters”…..”you want children to starve”. Can you hear it? The liberals have been better than us at repetitive propaganda. Give us the super majority and watch how “hateful” and “stupid” and “destructive” we become in their eyes. The only way to survive, prosper again and save the Republic is: “We win, you lose, end of story!”

  29. I think the country is strong and has a lot more resilience than we are given credit for. The one positive thing about Obama, the liberals and the media is that they have woken the sleeping giant. The liberals have been at a pervasive and insidious attack for years trying to weaken the country. Now that they are out in the open we need to fight back with a vengance. This means we need to constantly challenge rthem and never ever give them the edge again! We need to continue what we did in November and remove those 23 Democrats from the Senate. We don’t replace them with lawyers, but with common sense business people who know what they are doing. Keep vigilant and we will move this country in the right direction once again!

    What comes next?

    • Read the “Communist Manifesto” then take a good look at America then tell me where we are at this very moment in time?

      • Our congress in the last 70 years have made laws that cover every plank on the communnist agenda. So with that covered the United States is a socialist country.

  33. Almost everything he and his puppets has done is
    illegal. I thought when any one broke the laws of our country they had a to answer for it. WHY IS he STIILL IN OUR WHITE HOUSE?

    • Bedie, I’ve been asking the same question over and over again and no one has an answer or will give me an answer. We have an ILLEGAL ALIEN TERRORIST in OUR White House. He has brought our country to where it has never been or deserved to be in. He is Illegal. We can’t Impeach “it” because he is NOT a Legal American Citizen, it would be like trying to Impeach one of the Mexan Cartel Members. It can’t be done. He has to be arrested, along with his puppets and thrown into prison NOW. Let Col. Terry Lakin out of Levinworth and give him the highest honor available for being the One and Only Person to put his job on the line to Proove Once and For All that the head IDIOT is not legal but, instead he was sent to Levinworth in subhuman conditions, from what I read in his first letter from prison. He has more gutts than anyone I can think of. Now it seems like he’s been forgotten. Terry, if you read this, I will NEVER FORGET YOU. The Imposter was supposed to have a hearing with the Supreme Court. What happened there? The shooting in Tucson. The woman politician is recovering, and as sad as the other deaths were, it happens. But there is NO REASON THAT THE HEARING HAS BEEN DELAYED. “IT” is our problem. We can only take the bull by the horns and Exterminate the American Hating Bigots and TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK, ONCE AND FOR ALL. What’s the hold up?

  35. Michael,
    It’s nice to see your optimism but I think we have about 4 years at most to turn things around or we will be past the point of return. The following must happen, which I think is very unlikely.

    1) GOP must cut spending drastically in the next two years and try to stop the over regulation in general but also with the EPA and FCC. I honestly don’t think our populace that has become so used to getting government handouts would allow this

    2) In the next election the GOP must not only keep control of the house but win the presidency and senate.

    3) GOP can’t revert to Liberal Lite like they did after the Gingrich revolution.

    With the press continuing to trash the tea party and GOP, the electorate probably not willing to loose what they see as rights to freebies and the likely hood of the GOP not really doing the things needed I worry it just won’t be enough. We are at the place any number of things could trigger a major economic collapse. I surely hope not but am preparing in case.

    Regards,
    Roger

  37. When America was fighting the Soviets in the Cold War there was one right here on our soil which started in the Wilson Administration! I fought the Cold War against the Soviets from the inside for 20 years in our military. I have a pretty good nose for propagandist lies!! The American Marxists could not have come out in the open during a worse time in their history to take control! Twenty years earlier and we would not have had an Internet to spread the word, twenty years from now and the patriotic baby boomers would be mostly gone an unable to lead the fight! The Marxist educators had dumb down our students, lied or omitted American History and sprinkled our youth with Marxist pixie dust for over the past 30 years or more! How else could have BO become President with a Marxist lead media! We will win this Cold War fight against tyranny on our own soil ! Signed — Baby Boomer

    • “BRAVO” Well said our schools are full blown communist and schools are one of the planks of the communist manifeto! The American parent spends thousands of hard earned dollars to send their kids to an University to memorize what some sceaming skull, tree higger,liberal knows,or thinks he knows and learns nothing else!

      • Phil and Norm: You guys got it! Notice how lately the libs are now referring to themselves as “progressives”? Don’t be fooled folks. that’s the PC version of Marxism, liberalism, communism, 2011-style. I’m a boomer and I saw this coming in 1971 in college. Converted hippies as professors started spewing the slop and I got out. I learned more than they wanted me to learn, to their utter disgrace. Funny thing, though, we’re paying these knuckleheads’ retirement funds today.

Twenty years earlier and we would not have had an Internet to spread the word, twenty years from now and the patriotic baby boomers would be mostly gone an unable to lead the fight! The Marxist educators had dumb down our students, lied or omitted American History and sprinkled our youth with Marxist pixie dust for over the past 30 years or more! How else could have BO become President with a Marxist lead media! We will win this Cold War fight against tyranny on our own soil ! Signed — Baby Boomer

    • “BRAVO” Well said our schools are full blown communist and schools are one of the planks of the communist manifeto! The American parent spends thousands of hard earned dollars to send their kids to an University to memorize what some sceaming skull, tree higger,liberal knows,or thinks he knows and learns nothing else!

      • Phil and Norm: You guys got it! Notice how lately the libs are now referring to themselves as “progressives”? Don’t be fooled folks. that’s the PC version of Marxism, liberalism, communism, 2011-style. I’m a boomer and I saw this coming in 1971 in college. Converted hippies as professors started spewing the slop and I got out. I learned more than they wanted me to learn, to their utter disgrace. Funny thing, though, we’re paying these knuckleheads’ retirement funds today.

  39. Someone said, “one common trait of Americans is that they are unpredictable.”

    The State of the Union is: we are so deep in debt that no one knows the sacrifices it will take to recover; reported unemployment is only for those not receiving benefits, there are many more; we have been invaded by millions of illegals that drain our resources and no one wants to stop them; and we have a government that has no idea of the wants and needs of the people.

    The sad part is that we allowed all this to happen. The good part is that America is waking up again and who knows what Americans will do.

    • You own a company and did well in the good years and took care of those employees that stuck with you! But times got hard and like it or not you could go flat broke or lay some off to get a handle on expenses! Isn’t it time to lay off some of the dead wood to balance our check book? We have to many police forces for this nation,FBI,CIA,DIA,NIA,OSI,IRS,NSA,SECRET SERVICE, PARK POLICE,FEDERAL MARSHALS,BATF, BORDER PATROL,ETC, ETC They are still giving grants,shooting worthless space shots,banning any building of nuclear power plants and banning the mining of coal to fire the others! Screaming of the coming water shortage but not building desalination plants on any of our shores,Caifornia should have at least six by now! They refuse to allow drilling in known oil fields while gas goes to $4,00 per gallon,soon more and there is only a finite amount of money and what it goes for is important! Brains are what we need not retoric! Where are the brilliant minds that trully built this nation?

      • Whether we like it or not, the answer is clear: OIL !
        We could turn the whole world on it’s ear with our reserves. Tell the Saudis to stick it. Brazil, Canada, everybody, would be foolish to not BUY from us, rather than sell to us. We’re at the top of the food chain, not the caribou! Wake the f___ up, America.

  41. Our State of the Union is strong and it grows stronger as more and more Americans refuse to rely on the mainstream news media for information. The Heritage Foundation gives me hope that our beloved country will survive the present attack by the far left, progressives, socialists, etc. Heritage strives to illuminate the truth and pass it on to all who will listen. Keep up the good work. I pray for our country and believe that “the wrong shall fail, the right prevail,” thanks to our faith in God and our willingness to fight for our principles.

Vote these God’s of the Universe who are all knowing out of office and just watch how strong our Country becomes. Freedom creates wealth and properity for every one.

  47. Our strength is based upon our US Constitution, it’s Amendments and the Bill of Rights. To realize our strength it requires a majority of our citizens to demand enforcement of the Constitution etc.. The Tea Party may be a part of the strength but overall we have a populace that is narcissistic and far from understanding its role in governing.. Time and education will tell the final story. C.

  49. Our union is strong.

    What we see everywhere now is peaked emotions from both left and right. Left is fearing a substantial reduction in control and influence and big government in general. Right is exercised because it sees the country currently gripped by an administration pervasively damaging our country through power without moral authority.

    Our union is strong; will it stay that way?

  51. The state of the Union IS NOT STRONG, it is most probably TERMINALLY ILL! It will in all probability collapse economically very “soon” (best guess, in 1-5 years) when the US Dollar loses its status as being the world’s reserve currency (needed for trade between nations, amongst other things). When it is replaced by something else, people & nations around the world will “dump” dollars for the new currency. The Dollar might collapse overnight (with 24 hour computer trading). Prices will skyrocket leading probably to both a US & global economic meltdown. Many, many people will lose their life savings if tied up in weak or near-worthless US Dollars. The handwriting is on the wall with HUGE Federal deficits “paid for” by the Fed printing Dollars out of thin air that only devalues the Dollar (might lead to hyper-inflation) & certainly causes loss of confidence in the Dollar worldwide. The only solution that MIGHT save us from financial collapse: DRASTICALLY cut the size & scope of the Federal government, balance the budget NOW & begin to make a REAL effort to pay down our now $14 TRILLION debt (say $100 BILLION/year). But that won’t happen! So… most likely, in 1-2 years the Dollar will collapse & with it our financial well-being & world power super-status. Already, many of our cities & states are on the verge of bankruptcy.

  53. For the past two years we have continually been bombarded with inane propaganda from the president, the print, and broadcast media. I am so very sick of hearing lies, fabrications, and hypocrisy.
    I just hope that the useful idiots are in a minority otherwise we may be doomed.

  55. I agree that the state of our union is still strong despite all of the damage that has been done by President Obama and his administration during the past two years. We are still strong because there are enough of us who are willing to stand up and fight to preserve free enterprise and the freedoms handed down by our founding fathers, including those guaranteed by the First and Second Amendments. Even though we won a major battle last November, we will not have won the war until after we elect a new president and a Republican majority in the Senate in 2012. We have a narrow window of opportunity between now and November 2012, and we must remain focused and energized in order to accomplish these two objectives. Otherwise, President Obama will have another four years in which to complete his goal of spreading the wealth and transforming America into a Socialist, third world country.

  59. We the People have indeed been asleep. We must get busy on the local level everywhere. This past election was stolen by at least 2 democratic senators (Reid and Murray), so we must make sure there’s no cheating. The other major issue is that so many people are morally corrupt–not only Hollywood, corporations, labor unions, politicians, and major news media, but on all levels. It’s good we have awakened to the need to stick to the Constitution and rein in spending, etc. but we also need to be on our knees, repenting and making things right in our individual lives. Then we’ll have a leg to stand on to be blessed again.

  61. I have my doubts about some of the saber rattlers on here. Either too young to know better or moles from the left pretending to be something they are not.

    Pullout your pocket Constitution and take an in depth look at the instructions our founders codified therein as to how to defeat that which has come upon us.

    “We The People” have far greater power than the progressives because they seek power and wealth while we seek liberty. They are not willing to take the chance of forfeiting all that they own or will ever own, as well as all of their tomorrows, for the possibility of success in their grab for power and greater fortune.

    The Declaration of independence is a step by step road map telling us how to implement the Tool Kit that is the Constitution!

    Trust it! And trust those that, like you, love this country and want to correct the course our ship of state is on. There are millions of us, and they fear us because they know they are few by comparison.
    It does no good to beat your chest in words of defiance. Act! Not in violent rhetoric or actions, act in coordinated unison to send the same message loud and clear to our friends and family and most especially our representatives. Let then know what we want and assure them that you have their back when they kick down the door! And when the follow through we must reinforce our support for them by acknowledging their effort whether successful every tim or not. I’m just an old veteran that has seen and felt all the pain and suffering that dictators can inflict and I have been fortunate enough to have been born into liberty. The sacrifices of of all who serve allows me to write these words without fear and you toe able to read them without hiding in the shadows.

    One more thing….Join me with Matt and others who love this country. When asked to call or email your Rep. or Sen. Please think of the sacrifices our troops are making and how difficult it is to hump a 120lb. Ruck pack and compare that with a little clickity clack on the key board in the comfort of your home.
    Stan up and stick your finger in the fan for once.

  63. Friends…fear not, I have never seen the public so engaged since 1942. Folks who had never been politically involved have educated themselves on the details of bills being rammed through. It’s interesting that the housing crisis and the market collapse caused most people serious loss of equity. This started the interest in government, and precipitated the slowdown since we represent 60% or so of the economic activity. The massive spending of stimulus, followed by the actions to buy votes for bill passage added “distrust”, and finally disgust as “lieing to us” became the norm. People felt betrayed by this, and it is this deep disgust and sense of betrayal that has solidified the sense of purpose of the tea party folks.
    The minority who have been governing have been voted out in the House, and in 2012 the Senate will change to a conservative majority. Hopefully with a conservative President. In the meantime you will begin to see a major change shrinking government both fiscally and physically and elimination of ligislative actions that has allowed this President to “reward his friends and punish his enemies” his quote, not mine. Even Democratic Connecticut added some 13 State legislators to the Republican ranks a minor miracle in what will become a major battlefield.
    Remember George Washington lost the majority of battles against the British, winning only those that really counted. We just won a battle that really counted.

  67. I’m reminded of the opening lines of “A Tale of Two Cities”… you know the part about “It was the best of times; it was the worst of times”, etc. Our nation is challenged both domestically and internationally as never before. Only the blissfully ignorant, the utterly delusional, or those who are committed to transforming the U.S. into a socialist worker’s utopia can be confident in President Obama’s leadership in these times. Even so the country is stronger than it appears because its true strength comes from the convictions and fortitude of its people and the Constitution which they will fight to uphold. Though we are challenged as never before, there are more of us who are committed and mobilized as never before to reassert constitutional rule and restrain government gone wild. Media like this forum didn’t exist just two years ago but the new media helps us organizationt communicate and take action in ways we never could before. Heritage is a leader in this fight and we are in it to win.

  69. I am of the opinion that the upper levels of both the Democrat and Republican parties are but “minions” of the NWO (or SATAN, your choice). The NWO has been playing a balancing act for decades to confuse the electorate and obscure the unfolding of their plans to establish the NWO.
    The ferocity and effectiveness of the Tea Party movement along with the TPs lack of a central control was an “unexpected” setback to the NWO’s plans. They were forced to retrench and learn how to fight an organization which has no central front to attack; they try and they fail but they WILL learn and adapt and WE must be ready.
    The corrupt Republican establishment has already taken many blows from the Tea Party; it is now trying to fight back.
    Those who are of the Tea Party must work to remove those Republicans who are of the establishment from the “entrenched power structure” of the Party and replace them with true Constitutional conservatives who believe in the American “ideological worldview”, not the BS “worldview” that the government schools have been using to indoctrinate the immature minds of our young.
    It IS time to end the PC BS that has invaded our society. Now is the time to end talk of Black Americans, White Americans, Afro-Americans, Mexican-Americans, etc.; WE must come together as ONLY Americans if WE, the PEOPLE, and our Republic are to survive the war that is being waged against us by the NWO,
    “Race” WILL always be used to control and manipulate the people to the bidding of their would be masters unless the people choose, instead, to make an end to the divisiveness of race and come together, as Americans first, Americans always.

    • Scripture says ‘If my people will pray, I will heal their land” or words like this and I believe a healing is taking place. Yes, we are Americans and those who support their old country by keeping to themselves, sending money to the old country, keeping their language need to learn English or go back to the country they came from.

  71. We must be strong in our fight to take back our nation. When are we going to WAKE UP ? Our politicians have us held hostage by passing whatever laws they deem necessary that will get them reelected without concern of our Constitution and Bill Of Rights. Do not believe for one minute that the LEFT is now willing to reach across the isle and work together for the common good of the people. Where were they prior to the recent elections? I pray that we don’t lose our freedom by being held hostage by those countries that have hated us for decades and are now buying our debt. Some of the same countries that we have helped in the past win freedom. I agree with many of us who believe in term limits for politicians. I also believe that the to get the same benefits given to all the rest of us as far as health insurance and social security benefits, maybe then they will vote for laws that we all share are for the common good of the nation. We need politicians who will not give in to those groups who do not produce any contributions to society other than living off our fruits and labor just to obtain their vote. I don’t have to mention who they are as we all too well know who they are. We need to be very focused on this new move to restrict our right to free speech via the internet and all other forms of media. The left that are now targeting the groups and people who speak out and support our God given rights, as they would love to silence us. Don’t believe for one minute there is now a SHIFT to move toward the center. What a joke and not as long as these so called ” Czars ” make all the decisions for our country without regard to Constitutional Procedures which now seem to be a thing of the past. Keep ENGLISH as our first and only language spoken and one that all need to learn after entering our borders legally, just as our parents and grandparents who entered in the past. Keep contacting your representatives and putting pressure on them and lets take back our nation. I refuse to be silent when it comes to our freedom as we are all Americans. To those who don’t believe in our freedom and want to under a socialistic government controlling all your rights, I would recommend leaving the U.S. and moving to one of the many countries that would welcome you with open arms. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS.

  73. I think the state of our citizens is strong as always, but the sate of our union is in the toilet. No amount of shmoozing by the President will make me feel differently. We have to work at it because he either will not or can not. Perhaps he believes that destroying us economically will help him to insert socialism a lot easier. I put nothing past him

    • The state of our citizens: mostly dumbed down & still sleepy, but improving… but time is not on our side
      The state of our nation: agree
      Obama’s motivation: agree, he’s a socialist who may or may not be purposely disarming & bankrupting this nation so as to more easily destroy the Constitution, our sovereignty and push us into a One World Order with the upper class “elites” & the rest peasants under their control.

We have to work at it because he either will not or can not. Perhaps he believes that destroying us economically will help him to insert socialism a lot easier. I put nothing past him

    • The state of our citizens: mostly dumbed down & still sleepy, but improving… but time is not on our side
      The state of our nation: agree

  75. I hope all of you are working on your local conservative groups, whether it be Republicans, Tea Party, 912 Groups. Whatever, it is imperative we work at the grassroots level to make those that are indifferent wake up and participate. This can be done by Letters to the Editor, getting involved with your local precinct groups and encouraging others to participate. I’m NOT going to give up without a fight, and the fight starts right here in MY county, My state, and MY country!

  77. Seems some of you have taken this conversation off track. The question is why do you see America as a strong country.

    1) most people care about individual freedom
    2) Americans are resourceful
    3) America has natural resources

    Even if we were cut off from global resources, American have everything they need here on this continent to thrive.

    • You are of course right on! We have gotten off topic. Nevertheless it is good to vent and add to since most folks have little avenue to do so. The country is in a volatile situation. I’m sure the Founders got off topic too!

  79. America is suffering from an identity crisis. We have gone astray from our core beliefs.

    We must first move to fiscal responsibility.
    Next repeal every law that violates the Constitution
    Eliminate campaign funding and create a general pool that all share equallly.

    Return “Critical Thinking” to the education system.

  81. It is very fine to be passionate about our country. A level head and a heavy dose of reason is required to weather this nightmare. The Marxists play chess well. We as Constitutional based Americans should play chess even better! Ponder their moves before you make yours and do not knee jerk react; this is a tactic of theirs. Propagandist lies are their weapons against you. Stay engaged at all levels: Local State and Federal. We did not get here overnight and it will take some time to straighten out the mess. The bottom line: “they don’t have enough muscle to shuffle their hustle!” Their final move was played after the 2008 election and they found out that the House was lost in a landslide! It’s over for them and they know it. Stay engaged, don’t be afraid, stay clam, be safe and always tell the truth! God Bless You and God Bless America!

  83. America is still a strong nation. We have all we need to survive within our own borders if we decide to. However, our strength is waning and the world needs a strong kid on the block. Isolationism is not the answer for America: Two World Wars are testament to staying to ourselves. Constitutional law must be reinforced by the lawmakers currently holding power. Education is in serious need of reform by injecting our founding history against the regimes of the past and today. Massive loss in manufacturing jobs. Taxes must be lowered for individuals and businesses. Businesses that have relocated outside of the U.S. need new incentives to return.

  85. I think we need a Grassroots movement for a 2012 Republican Presidential Candidate who has never run for PRESIDENT before.
    Let’s call it:

    The “2012 NEW BLOOD PRIMARY”

    Leave the old baggage behind. they can be advisors or possible cabinet members.

    There are plenty of good Conservative minds out there and we have the time.

    Pass It On e-mail and social media (let’s go viral)

  91. The state of the union is only as strong as that of the citizens who comprise it. There is a saying about the whole being the sum of the individual parts, and right now, many of the individual parts – the people -are at an all-time low, in my opinion, ergo, the republic is, as well..
    Our country is at a watershed point in our history, There are several generations of citizens who have not been taught truthful American and world history and our bedrock constitutional principles, have no knowledge of government and civics, basic economics, logic, analysis or problem solving and have been led to believe that the federal government owes them everything from their home to their education (such as it may be), their livelilhood, food, medical care and a permanent retirement, no matter when they retire or how much they themselves contribute to it, or save for their future. They expect those who are in the military to lay down their lives to defend us all, against all enemies but are more willing to pay much better wages and benefits to other federal government employees and bureaucrats who sit at a desk and think up ways to make life more difficult for those of us who wish to make it on our own efforts. They have no idea what the meaning of words like .sacrifice”, “self-denial” “discipline” and “saving for the future” really are, and take freedom for granted. 45% of adult Americans and families now pay no income tax, but are more than willing for others to pay it for them, and the more, the better, yet believe that they are entitled to all of the benefits that the other 55% are paying for. Millions of unemployed Americans are willing to draw unemployment pay from the government for up to so far, three years, while others who work and their employers make it possible for them to do so,. The 10% of all American workers who are members of labor unions now determine the contractual rules that regulate negotiation between the other 90% of workers and employers whether or not the worker chooses to belong to a union or not. We have a number of federal agencies headed by unelected officials and czars , like the FCC ICC, DOE, EPA, and FDA, etc., who do not answer directly to the American people and cannot be fired by congress who determine the rules by which their respective agencies operate and by their edicts, our daily freedoms, with little or no oversight, an direction and budgetary constraints by congress;.then, above all we have an all-knowing Supreme Court, again comprised of unelected lawyers with lifetime appointments, whose word is ultimate law, even above God, the almighty, who they deign not to recognize…!
    Is this a great country or what…..?
    Not anymore, I would contend, and not unless we get the majority of the progressives and the lawyers out of government completely, and return our government to a a manageable size and some common sense restraint in spending and governance, , otherwise we will very soon define a new .category of “Banana Republic”.

  93. You all don’t get it.
    Every time the “Rhino’s” do compromise with the Socialist and Marxists dems, we loose more rights and liberties and the country is nudged that much farther to the left every time. Every time Congress passes anti constitutional legislation and no one repeals it (which is actually thousands over the years) we grow weaker so every one gain back in the direction of the right was and is still lost to the 3 little nudges and sometimes not noticed through legislation on Fridays or in the nite. It is designed that way by the NWO and Bilderburger people. It is only just taken them alitte longer to achieve their Socialist and then progress to the reel end game of full control and Marxist agenda or they kill us. Just like every Marxist regime does like China, Russia and Cuba.
    It will be nothing left but the Elite and ultimate rich controlling the rest of the planet or they will kill us.
    Don’t think it will happen?
    Foreign armies helped out during Katrina and Blackwater participated in taking out a lot of people at night. Homeland Security helped themselves and confiscated everyone’s firearms so they could not defend themselves or protect their property. (I have spoken to these people and some Blackwater people myself and learned this directly from them.) Blackwater are private mercs for Uncle Sam. They are the largest standing private army and the Chinese are close by too to help round us up and process us if Homeland Secruity can’t do it.
    The Supreme is screwing “We, the People” too. They turn their head too much and can’t seem too get to everything if ya haven’t noticed.
    THEN THERE’S ALL THE STUFF THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T TELL US.
    Our Country is literally on the edge and 90% of our Statesmen and women are either selling us out or don’t really have the stomach for it after they became elected.
    WE NEED HARD CHOICES NOW to swing this about just to regain some control. Obama did his damage and he is pleased with his work and it is far beyond what the average political news junkie even realizes.
    Forget about Obama’s legibility. They laugh at us. We are spinning our wheels because nothing will come of it but us wasting precious time while the Marxist continue to implode us by design from within. Say good by to the good ol greenbacks too. They want the UN currency but they HAVE TO crash the doolar to get it out of the way. Same with the Constitution and your 2nd amendment rights during martial law while they are completely redoing everything.
    Watch out for those vaccines when they round everyone up too. I warned ya…
    Rand Paul, Michelle Bachman and Jim Demint are just not enough. And people are looking at Romney and Huckabee for president, please… We’ll be doomed.

  95. The last time I saw our nation as truly strong was 30 years ago when Ronald Wilson Reagan assumed command. I have talked to a number of people in many states whe say they simply felt better that day he took office on January 20, 1981. There was a man in Washington, someone in charge. That continued until he exited eight years later. The Bushes did not embarras us like Clinton nor bow like the dangerous, yet comical Obama. There are two I see that might restore us and remove the tarnish like Reagan–Newt or Sarah. Unfortunately neither may be capable of getting the nomination or winning the election. On the other hand many felt that way about the Great Communicator who became the greatest President of the 20th century. He arrived just in time. It is said God looks after fools and the Engiish. May that be true of Americans as well.

  97. UNIONS should be OUTLAWED. Unions were good when we were a YOUNG COUNTRY and used to make sure that the YOUNG UNDER-AGED WORKERS were GIVEN a wage that they MADE for the WORK that they were doing. Unions are now just trying to take over this GREAT COUNTRY and STEAL your s DU\ES and RETIREMENT MONEY’S. NO UNIONS ALLOWED to hold any OFFICES in ANYTHING.

    • there is an old song from the 30’s that explains the beginning of the labor movement. 16 tons , when the companies own the work place your house and the store that you bought your food and goods from. Sound like slavery to me. Now day’s the labor unions turned into the same thing that they were fighting!

  99. Quite a ‘plethora’ of comments on this one, appreciate you guys and your work. Think we need to dig a little deeper here, not that all your comments are not valid; just think we need to get off the ‘indicators’ and target the ‘root cause’. The corruption of the laws/legislation over the last 100 yrs or so and try to ‘exume’ the Constitution that all the ‘enlightened progressive’ politicians and lawmakers have tried to ‘improve’ (spell that ‘bury’).

  103. Let us never forget and wake up to the fact that the politicians in Washington are our “elected representatives.” A majority of the American voters put them in office. Jerry Brown was just elected Governor of California. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were just reelected and Pelosi remains Speaker of the now Minority party.

    A goodly number of Americans are uncomfortable and guilt ridden having been convinced that America is racist, militaristic, greedy, evil and unfairly exploiting earths natural resources and suppressing the poor

    This is the result of years of careful, surreptitious indoctrination by the Left that began during the Vietnam War and continues to this day. That, in my view, is the state of the nation today.

    That America is seemingly invincible despite the growing size and number of chinks in her armor does not mean she is impervious to disaster especially when a growing number of radicals including Obama are dedicated to “correcting” the aforementioned ills they’ve been screeching about for decades.

    Conservatives are faced with a monumental task. They must refute and negate the emotional, feel good appeal of the nanny state and justify, with logic and common sense, the hardships and sacrifices that are going to be necessary to get this careening, runaway entitlement freight train under control before it runs out of track.

  111. The state of the union is in the hands of a despot. It is not strong. However, We the People are strong and I don’t believe we will be fooled by a speecy filled with lies. As far as the military goes, I believe they would stand with the citizens rather than the despots. Thank God, we have the largest civilian army in the world–those who hunt and love their freedom.
