AMERICAN AWAKENING

Just remember one thing: The Obama phenomenon and the economic crisis are brewing the perfect storm, in which a magnificent obsession collides with a malignant deception that -- if we let it -- could unleash more social, political and economic devastation upon us than we can handle.
Unfortunately, a reckoning may be what is needed for an American Awakening.

This information is unbelievable!
This is very long but interesting read about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D. Editor, Safe Money Report Chairman, Weiss Ratings, Inc.
It will be worth your time to read it. It is scary in light of the fact that the current investigation being conducted may lead to criminal actions.

MILTON FRIEDMAN http://www.hoover.org/bios/friedman.html

Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman was painfully prophetic in his book, FREE TO CHOOSE, about what is happening to our economy now. Friedman aptly said that a society that puts equality over freedom shall have neither. A society that puts freedom over equality shall have a good measure of both.

It's time to save our freedom before it's too late…..

ABOUT THOMAS JEFFERSON


HOW DID THOMAS JEFFERSON KNOW?


QUOTES FROM EDMUND BURKE
It has been profoundly said, and how true it is,
that the only thing necessary for evil to exist
is for good people to remain silent...

The exact quote came from
Edmund Burke (1729-1797) - English statesman:


Attacks on America - Foreign and Domestic
Our Country in Turmoil

The Blood Of Heros

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY

Note: The DCC is a nonpartisan organization. We are against being controlled by the two-party system. We are deeply concerned about much of what the Democratic Party and the Republican Party stand for. In these perilous times there is simply no place for reckless, "win at any cost," party politics at the expense of the American people. We are convinced that, in this age of advancing communications, now is the time to begin a movement to establish direct democracy as described within this Website.
