My friends, I want to tell you one thing. The left just can’t figure out how to attack Romney best. First they say he’s a conservative businessman with too much wealth to be able to know what middle class Americans are struggling with. Then, to tailor their attacks, claim he is a moderate at best and cannot be trusted to be a conservative on fiscal or values positions. Unfortunately, Mitt Romney is not Ronald Reagan, nor is he William Buckley or any other conservative ideal. I wish he were more in line with my views. However, he is at least a fiscal conservative who will bring this country back from the brink that Hussein Obama has taken us to. Mitt Romney is, I believe the best, most competent and by far, the most likely to win against Obama and his cronies. Getting off topic a bit, it used to be that a candidate’s family was by and large off limits. A candidate’s wife, children, parents etc. were not to be attacked by either side as a show of respect and common courtesy, seeing as how the relatives were not running and therefore their thoughts, statements etc. were of little importance to the campaign as opposed to the actual candidate’s positions. However, liberals have taken to saying that Ann Romney’s statement that she doesn’t consider herself wealthy BECAUSE of her wealth is an indicator that the Romneys are out of touch and cannot fathom the difficulties ordinary Americans face. They are taking her completely out of context. What she actually said was that she considers herself wealthy, not because of her wealth, but because of her family and friends and loved ones. Most Americans, wealthy and not, would say the same. I am not wealthy, save for in the love and support I have of my parents, my siblings, my friends. In striving to bring down Romney, liberals have stooped to attacking the man’s wife, by all accounts and very nice person. I see nothing wrong with what Mrs. Romney said and I find her an excellent example of humility and grace in the midst of trials. And I find Mitt Romney a much better example of what a president should be, in that he does not focus on dividing the country, but on uniting. Surely The Left, which hailed Obama as the Great Uniter, He Who Would Cure All Ills, and The One, can get behind a man who has a plan to fix the economy and get Americans believing in America again, right? Unfortunately, The Left doesn’t want that! The Left instead wants Americans in bondage to Big Government. Mitt Romney therefore, is antithetical to The Left and must be defeated. I hope millions of Americans join with me tonight and strike a blow to The Left with a vote for Romney!
Obama’s Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, in an interview: “I should point out, when you talk about the SNAP program or the foot stamp program, you have to recognize that it’s also an economic stimulus. Every dollar of SNAP benefits generates $1.84 in the economy in terms of economic activity. If people are able to buy a little more in the grocery store, someone has to stock it, package it, shelve it, process it, ship it. All of those are jobs. It’s the most direct stimulus you can get in the economy during these tough times.”
The man has spoken! Food stamps are stimulus! It seems that food stamps do a better job of stimulating the economy than jobs do, evidently. Because although there has been a vast increase of people on them, the jobs are less and less plentiful. Hmm… maybe foodstamps are helpful. I mean hungry people got to eat right? And when people eat, they spend money right? Well the thing is, it is government sending money to people, to get them to buy stuff. Only, unlike Stimulus 1.0, this is long term government spending.
One problem with this plan, government can’t continue to spend more and more money, sending essentially free money to people who aren’t working, or are working less, and taking that money from people who are working. Many of whom are not working anymore since Obama and his henchmen are making it much less business friendly within this country.
Again, my brain is scrambled, because the news is on and is turned way up, but I guarantee that my quality articles will become higher quality once I work out a better schedule. Stay informed.
Rejoice longsuffering fans of mine. An Informed Mind, after a long and painful hiatus has returned with another illuminating piece. I have been gone a long time and undoubtedly my writing skills have suffered. My mind draws more blanks than it did in the heat of writing, and working long hours at my job tires my mind as well. But I cannot sit back and be silent as the Democratic Socialist Party of America spends us into bankruptcy.
You see, the new debt ceiling bill has raised some hackles on both sides of the aisle. I agree with Rep. Cleaver that this bill is a ‘sugar coated Satan sandwich.’ Only thing is, we have two totally different reasons. First and foremost there is little in the way of guaranteeing spending cuts. In other words, we gave Barack Hussein Obama (his highness) his two+ trillion dollars in debt ceiling raise but without significant cuts to spending, without a balanced budget amendment, without any guarantee of no new taxes in the future. The Republicans have been hoodwinked again.
In other, entirely related news: the DOW has dropped over 500 points in one day. Barack Hussein Obama is a boy that was sent to do a man’s job. Barack Obama is as Eric Cantor pointed out, in over his head. He has never created a single job, he has never had to deal with a budget. While he was smokin’ dope in college on taxpayer money, real economists were learning that spending more than you take in is a recipe for disaster and that countries need to keep a low debt to GDP ratio for the long term health of their economies. Barack never learned this. So while he is bashing ‘millionaires, billionaires and corporate jet owners’, he’s also soliciting funds from them for his reelection.
In closing of this erratic and somewhat discombobulated post, does anyone else notice that whenever something went wrong under Bush, it was always his fault, but now that Obama is at the helm it’s not his? It is always either A. Bush’s fault or B. ‘Circumstances we can’t control’? Goodnight America.
My tirade and assault on the unions; nay their corrupt political arms, continues. With a recent piece of literature *cough propaganda cough* coming through my mail box today, I opened it to find a new wave of insults and derogatory remarks aimed at the tea party people. Now, to clear any confusion, I am not a member of a tea party group. However, I FULLY support their ideals and see them as trying to rightfully reclaim their country from a bureaucratic monstrosity and big government bent on spending us into oblivion. Anyway, this union assails to good people from the tea party with statements such as these: “Their paranoia and hatred for anything to do with President Obama have blinded them to the point of a sort of mass hysteria that I believe is a social phenomenon this country hasn’t seen since the days of McCarthyism.” Where do I start? First off, I haven’t seen a whole ton of ‘mass hysteria’ from the tea party. Nope, all I see is a bunch of flag waving and singing patriotic songs. Hmm… are those crazy people patriotic? Nope, jingoistic and nationalist. Shame on those filthy, backwards bomb throwers and rabble-rousers.
Secondly, I think that the anti-war loons from Vietnam through the Iraq war would more so qualify for ‘mass hysteria’, especially the ones that carried signs portraying Bush as Hitler or with a bullet through his forehead. Maybe the Watts or LA rioters. Still drawing blanks unnamed union official?
“The ugliness being stirred up in our Country by the tea baggers needs to stop. The rest of the world sees us as tea baggers and not the kind- hearted people that we are. Just before Tim McVeigh, the mood in the country was ugly as well. Wake up people!” This one I’m really getting sick of. The only ugliness that’s being stirred up is being opened by leftists like *unnamed union official* who constantly refer to tea partiers by a sexualized slur. The same people that are ‘kind- hearted people that we are’ are the ones defaming the tea partiers that have legitimate and substantial worries about the direction our country is heading in. And why is it that every time a conservative (or conservative group) raises hackles about something the left brings up Timothy McVeigh? We conservatives don’t bring up the Black Panthers or Bill Ayers. Also, do you really think grandma’s gonna whip out a Magnum .357 or Uzi from her purse and mow down a bunch of politicos? Maybe we should be concentrating on people like, oh I don’t know… Nidal Hassan or Abdul Malik Mohammed Hussein… heck with it, the boxer bomber? Not every time an atmosphere is ugly it ends in violence, nope, sometimes it ends in political hacks losing their jobs, like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are poised for.
“It seems the public is tiring of the anti-Obama rhetoric, but that doesn’t mean it will go away…” Before I continue with this whopper, I had to bring something up. ‘It won’t go away’? You mean like that health care bill from the devil? The one that 65%+ of Americans didn’t want yet was shoved down our throats? Yeah, he knows what he’s talking about. “…Certainly if the economy improves month by month, then the hypocrisy of the teabaggers will become more visible to the public because they’ll realize that the bottom line is that the majority of the teabaggers, for whatever reason, either strongly dislike or simply hate Barack Obama.” Uh-huh. If the economy improves month by month, yeah that’s a big ‘if’ dummy. Especially considering that out of the 400,000 jobs we added in April or May or whatever month it was, 90%+ of them were temp. Census jobs. ‘WOW! Honey, I was just hired to the Census bureau. Only problem… I’ll be out of work in 6 weeks.’ Yeah, economy’s really looking up. Uh-huh. Maybe the economy is not getting better because we didn’t spend enough money on it. Yeah, that’s it. We need to spend more money. So here’s the deal, we’ll spend $20,000,000,000,000 to bail EVERYBODY out and then there’ll be enough money to go around and companies will hire and world hunger will be eradicated etc. The only minor side effect? Our dollars will be worth, oh say… 1/10th of a Zimbabwean dollar. (If that doesn’t register, a hamburger in Zimbabwe costs 10 trillion Zimbabwean dollars. An egg costs 500 billion.) But darn them teabagging rednecks, they just hate Obama because ‘AAAAHHHH there’s a bleck mann in da whyite hause!!!!!’ Give me a break.
You see my fellow Americans, union leadership is corrupt as a rule. Members in unions are just like everyday Americans. They want their kids to be safe and to have a better life than they had. They want America to be free and prosperous. Most probably have conservative views. But the union leadership has become nothing but a political pawn, a shill, a sheeple for the Democratic Socialist party of America. They should not be taken seriously anymore.
The greatest tragedy of our time is the loss of personal responsibility by the American citizen. The rise of the Democratic party as we now know it is wrought by the corresponding deficiency of active conservative principles by our citizens. The Democratic party now has espoused the greatest big government agenda in the history of our great nation. They promise free money, free healthcare, free college tuition: who is going to pay for it? Where do we get the money? And more importantly, what do we do when that free money runs out? We will have become so dependant on the government that we will have shed all personal responsibility and will no longer know how to earn anything ourselves.
In fact, we are rapidly heading toward that state now. The Democratic party seems an inexorable juggernaut unable to be stopped by traditional Republican tactics. Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama champion the advent of government run healthcare (read: socialistic health-care) which would add untold trillions to the government debt which we are now entangled in. They support many billions of dollars toward the creation of new and far-ranging government programs for the poor and suffering. I am for the removal of poverty from the American scene, but never at the cost of throwing our security into the briny depths of foreign whims. How can we take care of our own citizens’ money issues while throwing the nation into debt and disarray?
As every conservative knows, big government is the trumping of state and local government and the crushing of the will and freedom of the people of which the government was borne to serve. When government begins to control your wallet, yea, even a part of it, it becomes like a wild animal with bloodlust, it cannot be satiated with just the minor taste, it must consume the entire entity. This means that if we allow our liberal government to control even the minutest fraction of our financial lives, it will eventually grow to be the detestable brute that the founding Fathers intended to prevent through the various checks and balances. We must now elect someone with the great principles that have driven conservatives since the Reagan Revolution: the principles of integrity, honesty, small government, noninterference except when absolutely necessary, freedom of the individual, freedom of the nation, personal accountability and other principles so advocated by conservatives that have long thwarted the liberal pick-pocketing by the scourge of big government.
You may ask why I speak of big government as an animal, or even a cumbersome and obstinate impediment to liberty. Well the common principles of man have long sustained the human race since the days of Noah and Moses to our current state. When God saw the wickedness of the people, he did not indiscriminately destroy Noah as well as the heathen sinners. No, he saw the righteousness of one and seven and spared them. As well as with the rebellion of Korah against the laws of God brought by Moses from the Mount Sinai, God destroyed Korah and his followers yet spared those that remained loyal to Him. Personal accountability made all the difference. The followers of God made a personal commitment to remain loyal and steadfast when others were blindly following one erroneous man. This can be said of liberalism, we follow blindly in the direction our brute big government leads us. With conservatism; however, personal responsibility is the driving force. Personal accountability in finances, freedom, choice and family. The government stays as much out of your life in a conservative government as it intrudes and obstructs in a liberal-run one.
Therefore choose for yourself of which you wish to be yoked under: a government that restricts or a government that uplifts? A government that controls or a government that knows it’s role? A government that determines what you can do and when or a government that allows for personal freedom in bounds of natural law? A government that promises big and falls short or a government that stays out and allows you to become all you can be? A government whose yoke is crushing in weight and destructive in nature or a government whose yoke is light and unrestrictive? A government who lives to control or a government who is controlled by those living under it? A government grown to the size of unsustainable range or a government who helps more than controls? These are the questions before us now in the great moment of elective process. The time in which we exercise our will. We still have the choice, do we have the will? We still have the power to shrink this sizeable behemoth to a manageable and freedom loving ordinance run by us and doing our will. Will we step up and say to the government through our ballots that we will no longer be controlled by them, instead they will become adherents to our will?
Now is not the time for apathy on the part of the great conservative spirit within every American. Now is the time to act, to set forth a new revolution: not one wrought by violence or death, not of communism nor Marxism nor liberalism. A peculiar revolution indeed it shall be, instead of ‘progressing’ to a new depth of personal unaccountability, we shall instead ‘progress backwards’ as it were, to the shining shores of liberty and the sunny plains of personal freedom. We can truly progress, but we shall progress genuinely, for once, toward a right and just goal of freedom and responsibility and the removing of the yoke of government that has become a prevalent factor in the ongoing demise of the liberty we have had for two hundred and thirty two years. We shall indeed break the bondage imposed by government and replace it with a righteous government of old, one of noninterference save the case of war, violence or fraud.
