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!
In a recent speech given by president Obama at the U of Michigan, Obama didn’t encourage the next leaders of our nation, economy etc to become the great thinkers and doers of tomorrow, but he bashed opponents who disagree with his idea of large government becoming the answer to all of our problems: “But what troubles me is when I hear people say that all of government is inherently bad,” said Obama, who received an honorary doctor of laws degree. “When our government is spoken of as some menacing, threatening foreign entity, it ignores the fact that in our democracy, government is us.”
Where do I start? First off let me address the idea that someone is saying all government is bad. No one is saying that, except the anarchists who are CRAZY. If there is too little government, things WILL fall apart. That is what led to the Constitution. The Articles of Confederation were so weak that the states were doing whatever they wanted and acting like their own countries. The Constitution was made so that the federal government was just strong enough to bond the states together and that’s it. Too much government leads to tyranny. The founders put us closer to anarchy, but far enough away that we’d stick together.
Secondly, our founders DID speak of government as a NECESSARY evil. George Washington said “Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” They saw that we needed a government, but wanted to seriously constrain it so that our own would never enslave us as the British did. That is why a strict interpretation of the Constitution is the only true interpretation. Activist judges have lead us down the road to totalitarianism, we are almost there. The IRS has been given new powers to enforce the health care mandate, the IRS is seeking out individuals with ‘combat experience’ as well as ordering new shotguns. Why does a tax collection agency need new shotguns and 16,000+ agents, some with combat experience? But I digress.
Lastly, nitpicking a bit, we are not a democracy but a republic. Our president can now, not only be titled ‘The Worst President of Our Lifetime and Beyond’, but historically stupid as well. Bravo Mr. President, or should I say (in honor of the bashing of the ‘irresponsible’ actions of Arizona) Senor El Presidente.
Yes my friends, now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. This health care bill has passed. Now comes the time for legal action, civil disobedience and all other manners of opposition that we are legally entitled to as United States citizens. Now is the time for states to pass laws unbinding themselves from this burden that has been placed on their shoulders. Now is the time to call for the impeachment of Barack Obama for unconstitutional actions. Now is the time for citizens to refuse to adhere to an unconstitutional infringement upon their liberties. Now is the time for all good men to act.
Now is the time for Republicans and conservatives to restate their opposition to this bill and their commitment to having it repealed. Now is the time for Republicans to gear up to make sure that Barack Obama is a one term president. It is the time to ensure that Nancy Pelosi never again becomes the Speaker of the House, that once respectable house of the people that is now little more than an enclave of corruption, arm twisting and bribery, that once honorable institution that is now little more than a partisan playhouse wherein one party passes groundbreakingly bad legislation over the will of the people. Now is the time for all good men to act.
This bill will do nothing to address the problems with health care but will cause massive amounts of new problems. New government programs will allow for more red tape, less innovation, more taxes and worse care. This bill will provide federal funds for abortion despite Obama’s symbolic gesture of an executive order disallowing abortion funding. Stupak was duped and he screwed the American people with his vote. My prayer is that he will be replaced with a true pro-lifer. A conservative Republican. Now is the time for all good men to act.
Nothing we can say or do will remove the fact that socialist democrats have passed the most marxist, statist piece of legislation in the history of our proud Republic. But what we can say and do is repeal it before the damage is done. We must take this fight to the conservative Supreme Court and have it nullified by showing it’s true constitutional problems. This bill can be defeated even now, repealed, annulled, nullified. It can be and it should be. Let every Republican now raise his/her voice in support of taking this bill to the SCOTUS. It is the time for every Republican challenger and incumbent run on the repeal of this monstrosity. Now is the time for all good men to act.
I watched the whole spectacle yesterday. Starting at 1:30 in the afternoon I watched as Pelosi and co. were heckled by angry protesters all the way up to 11:45 P.M. after the final vote was cast. I watched as socialist dems cheered the demise of freedom in America. It was then that I swore in my wrath that I will do everything in my power to bring America back to where it was when I was a child. Where it should be according to the Constitution and our founding fathers. It is my time to do everything I can to support conservatives and Republicans like John Boehner, Michelle Bachmann and Mike Pence who resolutely fought this bill and continue to do so. Now is the time for all good men to act.
“Almighty God, Creator of all things, Upholder of the universe, we come before Thee today to ask that You not remove Thy gracious hand of blessing from our land. I ask that Thou put within the hearts of Americans a contrite spirit, that we might return to Thee and repent of our wicked ways. We ask that Thou protect our leaders, but that Thou might convict them and cause them to turn against this bill that dishonors You through the slaughter of the unborn. Please Lord we beseech Thee, save our land. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I pray, amen.”
According to www.biggovernment.com Bill Clinton is organizing a pushback to the tea party movement. He and his team are going to ‘identify 7 or 8 national leaders’ of the movement and then try to either threaten them or bribe them into turning. With an inside man/woman they will be able to try and tear the movement apart at the seams. The others that aren’t able to be converted will be subjected to smear tactics and character assassinations.
This is typical of the left. Instead of recognizing that this is a legitimate grassroots movement, they will try and find a ‘leading man’ as it were and use him/her against his/her compatriots in the movement. Unfortunately for them, the tea party has no real leaders as it springs up from the people, just as the founders intended it.
It could get ugly as the progressive movement fights for it’s life against the tea party patriots. A big government Congress and President are fighting against the will of the people and are going to go bare-knuckle very soon as they try and stifle the growing movement that, if successful, will damage the progressive movement unlike any other damage it has seen in a century. Keep your eyes open America. Pugna in Conservatives, nostrum victoria est nox noctis!
Did you know that if you disagree with Obama you are a racist? News to you? Not to me, you see I’ve been traveling over the web, looking into liberal blogs to get my jollies and insert my Informed Opinion. What I found disturbed me, and somewhat sickened me. I found that the left was in full fledged attack mode against anyone who dared raise a reviling accusation against The One. The same left that called Bush a fascist, made him out to be as bad as or worse than Hitler, that said he had the blood of millions on his and his administration’s hands were now throwing a rather nasty hissy fit against anyone speaking out against Obama.
And there charge? Racism. I was called racist outright and in veiled references. I, and other conservatives like me, were told that we were racists and backwards and that we had no legitimate beef with the president and basically that our arguments were worthless and shouldn’t be listened to. Huh, funny, you see I thought that we would be at least tolerated because of the left’s undying tolerance and respect for all walks of life. Yeah I know, funny isn’t it? Conservatives have been labeled racist by the unions, the media, the vast left wing conspiracy, Jimmy Carter, Ed Rendell… am I missing anyone? That idiot from the New Black Panthers.
It is now vogue for liberals to try and shut down free speech by trying to make us sounds like racists. I don’t mind name-calling. If a liberal calls me names I can dress him down in thirteen different ways, but when you try to shut down debate by building walls and destroying a constitutional right, that makes me mad! Free speech is what this country is built upon. In societies wherein free speech is squelched, dictators and despots invariably rise to the top. In countries wherein free speech is regarded as dangerous or inflammatory and is subsequently shut down, democracy ceases and only certain speech is allowed. This is the antithesis of America and her ideals. Liberals know this, yet they don’t mind. They don’t mind because they are now on top and see America elected Obama as proof of a ‘fundamental’ shift in American thinking. Truth be told, their mandate is much smaller and slimmer and is in the process of being revoked. They don’t think they’ll ever fall out of power, but due to their attack on free speech, America is waking up.
Glenn Beck. What comes to mind when I say his name? If you are a tea partier, you might think patriot, if you’re a liberal, crazy comes to mind. Whatever you think of Glenn Beck it is undeniable what the left is trying to do to him. Instead of debating with him on the facts, they insult him, call him over the top, stupid, crazy, fat or some other insulting and derogatory name. Whoopi Goldberg called him a ‘lying sack of dog mess’. Wow! Tolerance only goes one way huh?
Beck, and Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, O’Reilly, and everyone else that is catching on to the left, the left wants shut down. And guess what, they are all defenders of free speech. What is do d@mn dangerous about free speech? Free speech allows the folly and treason of many liberals to be exposed. Americans don’t want one sided news, that’s why they are turning off CNN, NBC, MSNBC and other mainstream media channels. They want two opposing sides stating their cases in a respectful manner. Free speech causes that. Talk radio allows for that voice of dissent to come through despite liberal media bias on the mainstream media. Look at the coverage of Palin or the tea party protests. Practically every story done by the media was negative towards both. Yet through the internet, talk radio and Fox News the REAL news that tea partiers are patriotic, small government leaning conservatives got out. This terrifies the left.
Liberals know that to control the country and to ‘fundamentally transform the United States of America’ they have to control the flow of information. Thus the demonization of conservatives. If they can convince the American people that Glenn Beck and other conservatives are racists, they can seize control of the media and therefore the American people will be brainwashed or propagandized by their ilk.
Free speech needs to survive in America. Talk radio and the internet is at the forefront of the fight. Blogs and radio shows are doing battle right now over whether you are a racist simply for disagreeing with Obama. Prove that you’re not. There was a very lively conversation/debate going on over at http://hippieprofessor.com/2010/02/10/ahhh-sarah-about-that-hopey-changey-thing/ on this very topic. Don’t let the title fool you, down the page comes in the lines about racism and Obama. If conservatives allow liberals to demonize us and take away our legitimacy, the downfall of free speech in America is not far away.
So the next time that a liberal calls you racist, laugh it off and dress him down with a superior Informed Argument against big government and other liberal ideas. Do it long enough and effective enough and he’ll leave with his tail between his legs. AND, free speech will survive.
Through my personal experiences on the internet, blogs and supposedly unbiased news sites I have become increasingly aware that Sarah Palin TERRIFIES the left in America. No one has stirred this much dislike that I can remember. The left paints her as a hick, dummy, airhead, uninformed blowhard, disingenuous cur. They try to say she doesn’t think, she’s a racist, she needs notes on her hand. She doesn’t know history and GASP she didn’t go to Stanford, Harvard or Yale. Forget about the fact that she’s actually run something unlike *cough* Obama *cough*. She has run a town, a state, a business and a family. She hasn’t traipsed all over D.C. or had an affair. (Are you listening John Edwards, Bill Clinton, Mark Sanford etc.)
So, despite the fact that she’s inherently a better person than most on Capitol Hill the vast left wing conspiracy is out to get her. One question… why? What is so bad or wrong with Palin? Easy. She’s a threat. She brings a true passion to everyone that hears her. She has the support of a vast population. And one of the most important things, she is completely unhindered by that unAmerican prospect of political correctness. In the same way that many people were, and still are, afraid to criticize Obama due to his race, Palin can criticize away. However, the liberal media finds it perfectly acceptable to bash her without any cause. The reason… she is a conservative. It has been fashionable for years now to treat conservatives contemptuously while saying that if a minority is criticized, it is racism.
But I digress. Palin does have some issues that make her less of a force in the Republican party. One, she elicits very strong emotions. She is like the Maha Rushie, Rush Limbaugh, in that there are few that have no opinion on her. She either is loved or hated. That could work against her in the independents’ minds. I think that she needs to turn around the public’s negative perception of her qualifications before she makes a serious run at the presidency.
Her delivery can be a bit jarring and disconnected when delivering a speech. This is very much something that can be corrected and I think that she should work on it as often as possible. Her voice tends to rise as she gets to more stressed points and it becomes almost unbearable even for me, a Palin supporter.
Palin is poised to set the world on fire if she runs in 2012. And with her most recent speech delivered to the tea party convention, it appears that she is determined to do so. I think that if the Republican party melds together a Mitt Romney knowledge of economics and a Sarah Palin passion from the base, the Republicans will be VERY hard to beat, especially if the economy doesn’t recover substantially.
PS: To all you lefties out there… I WANT THE ECONOMY TO RECOVER. However, if it doesn’t look for a landslide Republican victory in 2010 and later in 2012.
The left is enraged by Tim Tebow and his mother’s Superbowl ad touting a pro-life message. While none have seen the ad, read the script or know anything about it sans for the general message, several women’s groups are up in arms over the audacity of CBS to show such an ‘anti-choice’ message.
Let me throw in a disclaimer. I like Tebow, I admire his guts to stand up for his beliefs on such a large stage. It’s easy to stand up for something when you are someone like An Informed Mind, relatively unknown (as for now) and without having your face out there in the public eye. I think his mother did the right thing when she said that she would not have an abortion. She lived her belief that abortion was, is and always will be wrong.
I tried looking through a pro-choice person’s eyes (hard as it was) to see if there was any reason to attack Tim or his mother for the ad. I thought well maybe the ad attacks people who have had abortions. But CBS wouldn’t allow something like that anyway. Ultimately the only thing I could think of was that if offered a logical, coherent and entirely believable and heartwarming alternative to destructive and life ending abortions.
This begs the question, do liberals hate babies? They certainly hate them before they are born because they go to great lengths to provide alternatives to letting the child live. I contend that we are the midst of the greatest genocide in history at the targets are the unborn. Liberals are actively promoting abortion as a facet of both health care and reproductive freedom. But they don’t want pro-lifers to have the right to express their reasons for not choosing abortions nor do they want them to be able to offer alternatives to impressionable and confused young women who are trying to decide between abortion and carrying the baby to term.
This speaks to the tyranny of what used to be a noble or at least freedom oriented political philosophy. Liberals used to be all about rocking the boat and trying to afford individuals the freedom to express themselves. Oh they still are, as long as you agree with them and are pro-gay marriage, pro-choice, pro-big government, pro-socialism.
We need to stand up for the unborn and if it means ideological conflict, bring it on!
The leaked emails between top climate scientists recently has shown purposeful manipulation of climate data to demonstrate more global warming than is actually occurring. Many scientists are furious about the emails because they have been ostracized for many years due to their skepticism about man caused global warming.
But how does this relate to you and what does it mean for the average Joe or Jane in America? Here’s what it means. Climategate shows that scientists, particularly those that have a vested interest in the climate change idea, are fluffing up their arguments with doctored evidence and suppressing reasonable dissent that shows facts backing up lack of global warming.
“The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t. The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate.” That is a quote from one of the emails detailing the fact that there is a noticeable lack of warming going on. This is not only proving that there is significantly less warming than scientists are letting on, but also proves that there is an insane amount of dishonesty and lying going on to get money spent on the hoax.
Another email states:
“This was the danger of always criticising the skeptics for not publishing in the “peer-reviewed literature”. Obviously, they found a solution to that–take over a journal! So what do we do about this? I think we have to stop considering “Climate Research” as a legitimate peer-reviewed journal. Perhaps we should encourage our colleagues in the climate research community to no longer submit to, or cite papers in, this journal. We would also need to consider what we tell or request of our more reasonable colleagues who currently sit on the editorial board…What do others think?”
“I will be emailing the journal to tell them I’m having nothing more to do with it until they rid themselves of this troublesome editor.”“It results from this journal having a number of editors. The responsible one for this is a well-known skeptic in NZ. He has let a few papers through by Michaels and Gray in the past. I’ve had words with Hans von Storch about this, but got nowhere. Another thing to discuss in Nice !” Since when, in science, does someone discredit another scientist simply because he disagrees with your point? These scientists involved in climategate have a vested interest in making sure the public is deceived into believing that climate change is happening.
Now, it pertains to us in that we are staring down a Cap and Trade bill that will raise our electricity rates, threaten our sovereignty and break the backs of small business and individuals unnecessarily. We need to stand up and say, “NOT ONE RED PENNY FOR A FRAUD!!!”
