As the August 2nd deadline fast approaches to raise the government-borrowing limit, President Obama called on Congress two days before this Independence Day to make a deal and announced, "Nothing can be off-limits"We've got to cut the deficit." [1]

Republican Senator Dan Coats responded, "It's time for bold action and a new plan to address our current crisis" and that it was time for the government to "stop spending money we don't have and to enact policies that will grow our economy and get Americans back to work." [Ibid]

Two hundred and thirty five years ago to this 4th of July, America's Founding Fathers established the following principals and truths to be self-evident: that all PEOPLE are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable RIGHTS; that, among these, are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; that, to secure these RIGHTS, governments are instituted among PEOPLE, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; and, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the RIGHT of the people to alter or to abolish it.

The Declaration of Independence of 4 July 1776, indicted a government that engaged in barbaric conduct contrary to the laws of Humanity that included "works of death, destruction and tyranny unparalleled in the most barbaric ages" that is until the Age of Now!

Where ever we lay our money down reflects our heart and mind and citizens of conscience comprehend that budgets are moral documents.

Obama's 2012 budget request to Congress not just adds to our current debt of $14.3 trillion but Obama's $3.7 Trillion Budget Calls for Military Spending Increases and Deep Cuts to Social Service Programs!

"Any nation that year after year continues to raise the Defense budget while cutting social programs to the neediest is a nation approaching spiritual death."-Rev. MLK

Obama's budget adds another $3.075 billion in military aid to Israel although Israel has consistently misused U.S. Made weapons in violation of America's Arms Export and Control and Foreign Assistance Acts and in spite of the fact that everywhere except in this republic the 44 years of military occupation of Palestine is viewed as a US-Israeli collaboration!

Khalid Sheikh Mohammad involvement in the terror upon America, "By his own account"stemmed from his violent disagreement with U.S. foreign policy favoring Israel." [2]

Abdulmutallab's attempt to blow up a plane on Christmas Day in 2009, was fueled by "his sympathies toward the Palestinians and anger over Israel's actions in Gaza." [Ibid]

President 'Nuclear Free World' Obama's FY 2012 for the National Nuclear Security Administration includes 7.6 billion for nuclear weapons research and production, which is 8.4% above his FY 2011 request and 19% above his FY 2010 request.

Funding for a new "Uranium Processing Facility" for production of thermonuclear secondaries at the Y-12 production plant near Oak Park Ridge, TN, is proposed to increase to $160.2 million from $115 million in FY 2011.

Obama's FY 2012 budget request also creates a new Life Extension Program for the B61 warhead funded at $223.6 million, even though that gravity bomb's original mission of forward deployment in Europe against a Soviet threat vanished at the end of the Cold War.

Life Extension Programs extend the service lives of existing nuclear weapons for three decades or more, in contradiction to our declared national security goal of a future world free of nuclear weapons, and it also endows them with new military capabilities. [3]

Life Extension Programs also undermine sound national security by introducing major changes to America's existing nuclear weapons stockpile that had been extensively tested and known to be most reliable weapons of mass destruction.
