Quick! Pour Me Some Pepto

Today, as I was on my way to drop off the old “Silver Toilet” for an oil change, I turned on the radio and was subjected to this little gem here.

So this is not about spending.  And this isn’t about fiscal responsibility.  This whole thing is about one thing:  the Republican obsession with dismantling the Affordable Care Act and denying affordable health insurance to millions of Americans.  (Applause.)  That’s all this has become about.  That seems to be the only thing that unites the Republican Party these days.

Through this whole fight, they’ve said the American people don’t want Obamacare, so we should shut down the government to repeal it or delay it.  But here’s the problem:  The government is now shut down, but the Affordable Care Act is still open for business.  (Applause.)  So they’re not even accomplishing what they say they want to accomplish.  And, by the way, in the first two days since the new marketplaces — basically big group plans that we’ve set up — the first two days that they opened, websites where you can compare and purchase new affordable insurance plans and maybe get tax credits to reduce your costs, millions of Americans have made it clear they do want health insurance.  (Applause.)

More than 6 million people visited the website HealthCare.gov the day it opened.  Nearly 200,000 people picked up the phone and called the call center.  In Kentucky alone — this is a state where — I didn’t win Kentucky.  (Laughter.)  So I know they weren’t doing it for me.  In Kentucky, nearly 11,000 people applied for new insurance plans in the first two days — just in one state, Kentucky.  And many Americans are finding out when they go on the website that they’ll save a lot of money or get health insurance for the first time.

So I would think that if, in fact, this was going to be such a disaster that the Republicans say it’s going to be, that it was going to be so unpopular, they wouldn’t have to shut down the government.  They could wait, nobody would show any interest, there would be, like, two people on the website — (laughter) — and everybody would then vote for candidates who want to repeal it.

Excerpt from:

Remarks by the President on the Government Shutdown

M. Luis Construction Company, Rockville, Maryland

The arrogance was just too much to take.  I shouted out loud “of course the website was flooded!”  “We have no choice, it’s the law!” Surely Obama isn’t so narcissistic that he actually believes that people are flocking to the website in droves because they love him and his policies; not because he has forced them to comply by fining them with a tax penalty of they don’t.   No, wait, he is.  Like Sally Field accepting her Oscar, Obama gushes every time he looks in the mirror, ” you love me, you really love me.”  I had to turn the radio off, I couldn’t stomach any more.  Every day we are subjected to the propaganda, the soft ball interviews and outright lies of this administration, and no one, steps up to call them on it.  It is beyond frustrating, and more and more it seems like we are powerless to stop it.

I keep asking myself, where are the Republicans?, Where are the people I hired by my vote to represent me?  Why is there not a televised rebuttal every time Obama opens his mouth?  The Republican party has taken the common sense of the American people for granted.  They just assume that the masses are smart enough to see through all the lies and deception.  Well, apparently they are not,  after all they reelected the most miserable excuse for a leader this country has ever known, to a second term.  The GOP needs to start striking back, they should have started months ago.  Every speech Obama gives needs to be followed by a Republican press conference, pointing out each lie and fallacy one by one.  Since we can no longer count on the mainstream media to educate the masses, the Republicans need to fill the airwaves with short PSA type commercials.  Short spots of airtime, such as PJ Media‘s Afterburner, that extol the benefits of conservatism on society and highlight the perils of Obama’s Socialism.

The GOP needs to embrace its new blood, the Ted Cruzes and Rand Pauls and other’s of their ilk need to be endorsed and encouraged, not stabbed in the back by their own.  The American people are hungry for representatives who will challenge the status quo, and speak for us, not speak down to us. 2014 is closing in.  The Republican party does not have the luxury of time.  This is indeed our most desperate hour.

We Will Be Watching

President Obama, you won last night’s election by 2,791,867 votes. In a nation of over 314 million, that is hardly a mandate. Don’t you dare think you are in the Oval Office because you won the hearts and minds of the American people. The only reason you got re-elected is because your clever campaign advisers understood the numbers game that is the Electoral College. Remember, nearly half the nation voted against you. Nearly half the nation did not buy into the fictitious “War on Women”, the half-truths, class warfare, race baiting, and outright lies put forth by your campaign machine. Nearly half the nation, did not trust the mainstream media to give us the unbiased facts. Nearly half the nation has no faith or trust in your ability to lead.

Millions of us are capable of understanding that it is possible for man to hold strong values and convictions and live them out in his personal life, yet still be able to govern based on the will of the people and the rule of law.  You exploited the fears of those who couldn’t understand that.

Millions of us understand the basic economic principle that  true prosperity is the result of hard work and wise choices, not the exploitation of the weak.  That wealth is something to aspire to, not envy.  That profits belong to those who earn them and shouldn’t be redistributed to those who didn’t.  You pandered to the ignorant and lazy by promoting a “Robin Hood” mentality.

Millions of us understand that a militarily strong America is the gate way to peace in the world. You disgraced us in the face of our enemies.

And Millions of us understand that a smaller more efficient government, not a larger more intrusive one, is the key to a secure nation, a robust economy and for promoting innovation.  You appealed to those who want the government to take care of them instead of being responsible for themselves.

We were not impressed by your rock star schtick, or the endorsements of celebrities who make their living, imitating the real world rather than living in it.

 

Those of us who understand  will not stand by and watch our Divinely Inspired Constitutional Rights being stripped away.  You will be held accountable for Benghazi. You will have to accept responsibility , for the continuing high unemployment, for the high fuel and grocery prices, and for the economic misery that your policies will bring. We will expect you to keep your promise of bi-partisanship.  That you understand that you will have to compromise your agenda if you want us to compromise our values. We will be energised and engaged, we will hold our  Congressional Representatives responsible for holding your feet to the fire. We will not lie down and lick our wounds in defeat, we will flood Congress with letters, phone calls and emails, to be sure our voices continue to be heard. We understand your agenda and we will not let it stand.

I hope this post finds its way to you, so you will feel the eyes of nearly half the nation burning on the back of your neck, a constant reminder that not everyone adores you. We will continue to  vet our candidates, and educate ourselves on the issues, we vote, and we are watching.

America, Amerika

There are those who would say that President Obama may be charismatic,  but he’s not too bright.  When it comes to solving the countries problems,he just doesn’t get it.

I disagree.

I say that Barak Obama is a brilliant man. A man who has a clear vision of what he wants for this country, and knows how to manipulate the system and the public to make it happen. He has a genuine belief that he can save the country and bring prosperity to everyone.

In the President’s American Utopia, every one contributes as much as he is able into the governmental bucket and everyone only takes out as much as he needs. No one will ever have to worry about housing, food, or healthcare, the government will take care of it. No one in this country will ever again be homeless, hungry, or die for lack of lifesaving medications. Since we will no longer have to find a way to supply our most basic needs, we will be free from boring, soul sucking, dead-end jobs and will find fulfillment in all sorts of charitable pursuits instead. We can spend our days building houses for others, cleaning the shorelines, repairing roads, and growing crops, all for free since we will have no need for an income. Yes indeed, Americans will live in a paradise. Free from worry and want. Where nobody has to work, and yet everyone gets fed. We will be the envy of the rest of the world.

Does he have a plan to avoid the substandard housing, the bread lines and rationed medical care? Can he soothe the discontented masses?  Those who are not happy to merely survive, but long for a purpose and a way to prosper? Does he have the vision to correct the ideological faults that doomed his heroes to failure? No. He doesn’t need to. Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Castro were not worthy of the task. Obama is.

This is the dream that keeps us up at night.  A place where the government slowly and insidiously creeps into our personal lives and dictates every aspect of it.  From what we eat, what lightbulbs we can buy and even what kind of toilet we can flush nothing is made, bought or sold without government’s approval and cut of the profits.  Gone are our rights to our own homes and personal property.  The opportunity to use our hands and minds to create wealth will no longer exist. This is the America that many of us never think will happen. Maybe we are the ones who don’t get it.

The problem is that many people share Obama’s new American Dream.  How do you convince people who are working hard, pay their taxes and yet struggle to put food on the table, and pay their mortgages that it is not the government’s responsiblity to provide relief?  How do you assure someone who cannot afford the treatment they need that there are better alternatives to government health care? How do you persuade an entire generation raised on the liberal bias of the public school system and network media, to fight for the right to work and think for themselves?

This is the challenge Mitt Romney must face if he is to be the next president.  To reignite the passion for personal responsibility in a people who no longer value personal freedom.

We’re Getting Closer to “Dear Leader” Everyday

Flag depicting President… – Flag depicting President Barack Obama above Lake County Democratic Party headquarters in Tavares. – OrlandoSentinel.com.

The Lake County, FL Democratic party headquarters was displaying this flag today. Outraged Veterans groups demanded that the flag be taken down because it was a violation of the Flag Code.  After checking the Code online the woman in charge took it down.  Still, why did they put up this flag in the first place?  Respect for the flag was once taught in school. Nowadays it seems that only the Military and the Boy Scouts know how to properly display and dispose of a United States flag.  Flag etiquette aside,  this flag represents the disdain many Democrats have for our republican form of government. The blind adoration that the Democratic Party faithful have for this man is almost cultish.  Honored symbols of our country are theirs to manipulate into objects diefying their leader.  Even our Constitutional separation of powers is seen as just a minor obstacle to his reformation of this country into  a socialist democracy.  Just how long will it be before our classrooms and public building will be filled with images such as this with only the leader changed?

This is probably the most important election in the history of America. Indeed the very existence of  the United States of America and what we stand for is at stake. Will we continue to be a country led “Of the people, by the people, for the people“? Or will we become a socialist welfare state, where the looters and moochers are entitled to strip the wealth from the producers. Every American who sees the truth needs to step up. There are too many in this country who are happy to trade their personal freedoms for a life free of personal responsibility. This is NOT what it means to be an American. Do not think we can stand by and things will work out. Our current president will destroy our republican democracy and replace it with a socialist one if re-elected. DO NOT GIVE HIM A SECOND TERM.
