Short humorous clip in which the GOP candidates debate Barack Obama.
I’m already hearing people claim Mr. Obama is a shoe-in for the 2012 election. They are saying he is unbeatable. With the elections so far away, why start this kind of talk?
The propaganda machine of the Third Reich knew the best way to convince people of your “truth,” is to say it loud and say it often. It doesn’t matter what the facts say. As Joseph Goebbels said, “Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths.” The only thing that matters is that people believe Obama can’t be beat.
Why do people need to believe this? For starters, it is meant to discourage wishy-washy voters who would otherwise vote against Obama. Some will say, “What’s the use in voting? They’ve been telling us for two years now the man can’t lose.”
But there is another reason. It allows democrats to challenge a loss. After all, the experts have predicted a landslide victory for Obama. How could XYZ have won unless he cheated?
Another great thing about this tactic of the democrats is that it allows them to continue with other lies. When Obama loses re-election, democrats and neo-socialists will claim the people did not vote against their socialist programs. They will claim the people overwhelmingly voted for wealth redistribution, collectivization, socialist programs, and entitlements, but the republicans cheated… and who paid the price? The People!
Mark my words… you will hear all of this when Obama loses in 2012.
On sale now for $1.99 The United States Constitution: A Common Conservative’s Perspective
This has to be some of the most ridiculous rhetoric I’ve seen come from our government in decades. I can’t think of the last time I’ve heard such garbage.
Both sides have played the American people once again. It’s as if we’re supposed to say, “Ooh! Thank God our saviors in Congress reached a last second deal.” And we’re all supposed to fall at their feet, worshiping these nad-less, worthless people because they compromised and once more brought of from the brink of destruction! Just like Barack Hussein Obama did by virtue of his election.
Do they really think they are fooling anyone? Out of almost $4 TRILLION, they managed to save our nation by whacking $38.5 billion? And hell would have come to earth if they saved another $1.5 billion? Let’s just think about this for a second . . . $38.5 billion is roughly 1 per cent of the budget Obama submitted.
Do these people really expect us to believe $.99 out of every dollar they spend is spent well?
This all began because a gaggle of cowardly politicians did not want to risk losing seats in the last election. Democrats could have (and should have) passed this budget last year. The gutless Republicans have enabled them.
I hear next week Congress will order the mass murder of 120 million Americans. The talking points of both parties will be… “Hey, we spared you, right? You should be thanking us.”
At that point, Jim Moron…er…Moran, the Democrat from Virginia, will give a speech entitled, “Shut up and sit down or we’ll bury you too.”
Why are people…let me rephrase that…why are the leftwing loonies still so darned scared of Sarah Palin?
According to USA Today, one of Ms. Palin’s ex-aides has written a book about her. The short article in the link makes the manuscript sound like the typical anti-Sarah sniping that has taken place for the past two-plus years. According to the article:
The book was co-written by Jeanne Devon, publisher of an anti-Palin website called Mudflats, and Ken Morris, a California writer who has also been critical of Palin.
Just the other day some of the loonies I know were posting anti-Palin rhetoric on their facebook pages. One commented she hoped Sarah Palin would run for president in 2012 because Saturday Night Live needed new material. Others chimed in with agreement and a promise that this time SNL would completely destroy her and make her hide forever after.
A Los Angeles Times article from February 17, 2011 says Sarah Palin is still toying with the idea of a bid for the Executive Office.
I love Ms. Palin, but I know she is polarizing, even in the Republican camp. There are capital-C-little-r Conservative republicans who like her and then there are the basic Republicans who range from progressive McCain-esque to party-liners like Rove that would vote against her. My guess is eventually the party will probably split because of the competing ideologies between the two camps. The former is the paleoconservative idea of limited government and conservation of the Constitution while the other side is for big government, simply smaller-government-than-liberals-want. But all that is another post.
Despite the GOP’s internal struggle, a part of me hopes she runs. I think a ticket with Sarah Palin headlining would probably cause a good number of liberals to spontaneously combust. And you know what that means… yes, less democrat voters… but I was thinking s’mores for everyone!!!
I don’t care if it is a GOP idea. It’s not conservative. Conservative means conserving the original ways. To create a ridiculous “Bill of Rights” for seniors (or for any group) is outlandish. On top of that, it is a disgrace to the true Bill of Rights. Here’s a message for Michael Steele and all the republicans who sign on to this:
Rather than acting like democrats, cowtowing to special interest groups, why don’t you grow some cojones and behave like men and women who love America?
America is not a mass of people. America is not a collection of 50 states. America is an idea that all people should be free. That government intervention–especially at a federal level–should be minimal. That We, the People, can live our lives without some fat, bloated bureaucrat drunk on the wine of his own power telling us what we should and should not do.
A “Senior Health Care Bill of Rights” is not an answer to Obama’s socialized medicine. Labeling that silly piece a Bill of Rights is little more than polticking. Call it what it is: garbage. It’s nothing more than a list of talking points you hope will score points with the elderly come 2010 and 2012.
Want ideas for health care reform?
I’m always available if you need more real ideas about how to lead this country by way of the Constitution. I may not get milions of votes each year because I haven’t sold my soul, but I know how to read and I know the difference between right and wrong…which apparently, is more than anyone can say for you people!
In a few short days, I’ll be attending a tea party near my home town here in Alabama. When I got wind of it a few weeks ago and heard they were looking for speakers, I decided to e-mail the person and volunteer to speak. There was a caveat to their request for volunteers: Prefer politicians and people running for office.
I shot a quick e-mail to the person that was listed as the coordinator. I told him, I’m no politician, but I’m fiery mad. I asked him to contact me if he was still looking for speakers. He never did. Over the next couple of days, as I waited for a response, I thought about what I’d say.
Politicians should not be speaking at TEA parties. I don’t care if there is a -D, -R, or -I after the person’s name. These are not intended to be an opportunity for a politician to stand there and tell us what they think we want to hear. That’s a bit like cornering the fox in the hen house and then listening to him tell you about the importance of guarding your chickens. Politicians are the reason we need TEA parties. Politicians are the ones who got us into this mess.
Perhaps you are saying, “Not my guy. He’s always . . .”
I say, “Yes, you’re guy!”
Your guy, my gal, your neighbor’s guy–every single one of them has been complicit in this usurpation of powers and rights from the People. For forty-plus years, we’ve sat back and allowed these hooligans in Armanis and Brooks Brothers to pervert the Constitution into something unrecognizable. With no disrespect intended, our politicians are like Michael Jackson’s doctors. They’ve bleached the ink from the parchment and redrawn the lines that gave our government shape and depth. With intensive surgeries, they have given our government a face that looks nothing like the one it started with.
There is never a right reason for doing the wrong thing. Intentions don’t mean diddly squat. The politician who gives an inch on an unconstitutional law so he can have a victory on his bill is as bad as the devil who drafted that unconstitutional law. Let us take an obvious example: hate crimes. I’m sure a lot of the devils who fight for this legislation have their heart in the right place, but it is simply wrong to have the government declare one person is worth more than another. I don’t care if I am in that special protected class or not.
What are hate crimes laws but the legislation against unpopular thought? Prior to the Civil Rights Movement, we had a similar institution. The only difference was the protected group. Blacks who raped or murdered whites were given harsher punishment for daring to cross social lines and prey upon the protected class. Today, most openly admit that system was racist. So what have our politicians done? They’ve said, “Okay, whites are no longer a protected class. Instead, we’ll give special preference to blacks, Asians, gays, and a host of other minority groups and we’ll punish one group with more zeal than the other.” They have re-instituted racism and rebranded it with a happier-looking face.
The politician’s remedy was as bad as the disease it intended to cure. We traded terminal lung cancer for a case of terminal brain cancer.
But this is not about governmentally institutionalized racism. It is about the government being the problem. As such, it cannot also be the solution. It’s akin to suggesting the appropriate answer to the question 2+2= is 2+2.
Senators, Congressmen and women, state politicians, have all shirked their first responsibility: protecting the Constitution–and thereby our Liberty. They have “played the game.” They have learned to make back room deals. They have been practitioners of quid pro quo, where quid was our rights and quo was something we thought we wanted. Their abject silence on unconstitutional power grabs and laws has made them a part of the problem, much the way a witness who refused to testify against a klansman in the Sixties was just as equally guilty of the blight of racism as the murderous klansman.
If your guy (or gal) has been in office, he needs to sit down and listen. Politicians should be required to attend these parties, but forbidden from speaking. This is our time to speak. We’ve listened long enough. There is no sense in giving them a pulpit so they can deliver a great campaign speech. I don’t care what the fox has to say. It’s time for the farmer to confront the fox.

When Patrick Henry gave his famous “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech in 1775, the audience sat in stunned silence. Like Sam Adams, Mr. Henry was a little too radical for many in those conventions. Mr. Henry was prescient enough to recognize what was on the horizon. Today, we sit in a similar position.
Instead of King George, we have King Obama. Just as the old king made decrees and violated the rights of liberty and property, so too, Barack Obama rules by decree and fiat. He has set himself up as the chief executive of everything in America, going so far as to rewrite contract law by word of mouth.
Whereas the British king had the House of Commons, we have Democrats. The radical leftists in Congress rubber stamp everything King Obama decrees. They labor to enslave the American People under their laws and taxation.
And in place of Tories (loyalists to the Crown on American soil), we have Republicans–more so RINOs. Men like John McCain and morons like Meghan McCain, and countless other sympathizers of the Crown in DC have no interest in preserving our freedoms. They are only interested in preserving their power and using us to secure their wealth and control.
Is slavery more palatable because it has a -R after the master’s name? God forbid!
Our government has systematically abandoned the Constitution for the past 80 years. There are no longer checks and balances between the branches. Neither are the principles of federalism recognized. The states have been reduced to agents of a national (instead of federal) government. And We, the People, have been reduced to slaves with the sole purpose of paying for the whimsical government’s initiatives and capricious plans for wealth redistribution.
Just as the Tories did not help these United States win independence from the despotic government in Britain, our modern Tories will not assist in securing the blessings of Liberty for Americans. The coming revolution will be bloodless. It will require the mobilization of minute men armed with knowledge instead of muskets. Reason dictates that ballots, not bullets, decide the revolution. The only casualties will be the careers of lifelong traitors to the Constitution like John Murtha and Lindsey Graham.
We’ve had our tea parties. We’ve redressed our grievances to a deaf ear in DC. And now the King’s men have fired upon the Patriots with weapons of mass taxation. The war for American independence has started anew.
The MSM is loving the idea of a disjointed GOP and promoting the idea every chance with useful tools like Meghan McCain, Lindsey Graham and Jeb Bush. Is the party fractured? Sure. But why?
Ms. McCain says the GOP needs to be saved from people trying to move the party to the extreme right. Personally, I think she should join her mentor Arlen Specter on the other side of the aisle.
The problem with so many republicans and rinos like Meghan, Jeb, and Lindsey is that the choice they offer is one between the democratic socialists (which used to be the democrat party) and democrats (under the label republicans). Both of these groups are big government, big spending, totalitarianists…which makes them far left. The only option they give us is the letter after the despot’s name. Is slavery any more palatable simply because your master calls himself a republican? Of course not.
Meghan McCain is right in that there are those of us who want to move the party far to the right. I am one of them. On the right is the exact opposite of what the moronic rinos want. There is a small central government tempered by constitutional checks and balances. In a word, there is Liberty.
Contrary to how the democratic socialists and democrats (rinos) want to spin it, the far right is not about jackboots and gestapo tactics. At its most extreme, the right is anarchy–the complete absense of government. The US Constitution puts us very close to that, enumerating only 17 areas where the Congress can intrude on the rights of the sovereign states and sovereign citizens. While these darlings of the leftwing media lie, saying we radicals are anti-homosexual, etc. nothing could be further from the truth.
Most far rightwingers I know (myself included) don’t care where a man puts his manhood. Nor do we care if a person is black, Hispanic, Asian, male or female. The federal government should not make any legislation that considers race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual identity. The federal government is not a body designed for social engineering. The Defense of Marriage Act, federal amendments defining marriage, &tc. are unconstitutional, just as hate crimes and affirmative action laws are.
The idea of a “big tent” party doesn’t mean shifting our values to become like Barack Obama, where we promise everything to every vocal group on the left. Republicanism, by nature, is a big tent because limiting the authority of the federal government to the enumerated powers means every person–straight, gay, black, white, male, female–will be left alone to choose the path that seems right to himself or herself.
Michael Steele, RNC Chairman, is proving his last name does not suit him.
According to an article in today’s Wall Street Journal,
The debate over the U.S. moving toward socialism has been revived -– this time because Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele won’t call President Barack Obama a “socialist.”
The WSJ quotes a story from The Washington Times, which says Republicans are upset that “collectivist” does not accurately portray the Democrats and “lacks the pejorative punch needed.”
James Bopp Jr. said, “In just a few months, the goal of the Obama administration has become clear and obvious – to restructure American society along socialist ideals.”
Mr. Steele, can we stop dancing around the issue? Obama and the Democrats like Pelosi and Frank are the enemies of freedom and liberty. Socialism is not a strong enough term for them. Traitors works better.
It is evident Congress and Obama had their fingers in their ears or their heads up some orifice on April 15, 2009.
There is speculation Congress will propose a bill to force all online retailers to collect sales tax. Currently, sales taxes are only collected from buyers where there is a brick-and-mortar. For example, since there is a Circuit City in my state, any purchase I make online comes with sales tax.
Buyers are supposed to keep receipts from online purchases and pay the tax every year by April 15. State governments are whining that they are not getting their fair share and need federal money to cover their excessive indulgences.
According to the New York Post:
“It makes us the tax collectors,” said Jonathan Johnson III, president of online retailer Overstock, which has long opposed efforts to get retailers to collect sales taxes.
This is just one more case where government is trying to confiscate more money from citizens making less than $250,000 a year.
The bill is expected to be sponsored by Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WYO) and Rep. Bill Delahunt (D-MA) . It seems the only time the government is truly bipartisan is when it is trying to find more ways of beating money out of its serfs.
