Why I am an Independent Voter!

american-pride-ebook-stories-usa-logo_full

A comment was aimed at me the other day beginning with the words, “You republicans …….!”   Some people just do not get it at all.  It is no longer about Republican versus Democrat.  It is about the destruction of America!

I am not a Republican although I was for a period of time.  The Republican Party has let me down too many times now.  Can you tell me what the Republican Party stands for?  I can!  It stands for nothing.  They make promises to constituents to get elected and then cave on those same issues at the slightest pressure from the White House, the Democrats, or the press.  And, they do this despite having been given a majority in both Houses of Congress by the voters.  So either they suffer from completely deflated balls or they are RINOS.  It really doesn’t matter at this point.  I know there are a few truly conservative Republicans trying to do something to protect Americans but they are hamstrung and attacked by their own party.  This is why I am no longer a Republican.

I can certainly see what the Democratic Party stands for today.  It is obvious if you watch the news.  The current Democratic Party stands for Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts, making terrible deals with our enemies while abandoning our allies, giving illegal aliens free rein to steal from, rape and murder American citizens.  You think Trump is wrong?  He may not be the candidate of choice for me, but at least he speaks the truth.  The murder of Kathryn Steinle on the Embarcadero in San Francisco by an illegal alien is only the most recent example of a crime committed by an illegal alien.   Laura Wilkerson’s 18-year-old son was brutally tortured and murdered by a classmate he had offered a ride home.  The classmate would have been one of Obama’s “Dreamers.”

During testimony before the Congressional Judiciary Committee by parents of victims and Texas State Officials, it was revealed that illegal aliens have been involved in thousands of crimes in Texas alone, including nearly 3,000 homicides.  According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, illegal aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.  The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws. The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails.

Let’s see.  In light of this illegal alien crime wave and increasing terrorist attacks on American  soil, the Democratic Party stands for disarming law-abiding American citizens.  They also stand for ignoring the rule of law and dismantling or circumventing the U.S. Constitution, dismantling our military, destroying our economy while fudging unemployment numbers, and subjecting U.S. Citizens to being ruled by the United Nations.

As a friend of mine posted:

Can we stop calling those on the far left liberals and progressives? Nice sounding terms but their actual political platform is Statism and Totalitarianism. Obsessed with “correct thought” and “Correct speech”, [and] the sacrifice of individual choice to ideological “experts”.  In no way is this thinking liberal or progressive. It is very regressive, the exact same policies were the foundation of Statist and Totalitarian regimes from Mao to Stalin, Mussolini and Hitler.  Identity politics, class warfare, racial politics, statistical law making, central planning, there is no correlation between these ideas and classical liberalism, or any of the founding documents of this country. These factors were the dominant trends that made people leave Europe and establish a country based on sovereign States, individual liberty and property rights. Our “liberals” fight against State sovereignty, individual liberty and individual property rights. And our population is apparently too poorly educated to understand our own history.

Selective Memory Rampant in Senate!

Government Shutdown Averted, The New York Time...

Anyone remember why the government shutdown occurred?  It was a last minute attempt to avoid the Obamacare disaster.

A variety of compromises were offered to simply delay certain portions and make it less painful on the population. The answer from the senate and the administration was to play hardball, no negotiation whatsoever, which led to the shutdown.

So where are we now?  5,000,000 people that have become “magically” uninsured with no chance of regaining insurance in the near future.

Now, the “we will not negotiate” bomb-throwers in the senate that used vile hate mongering to defend a political position are now saying the exact same things that was being said by those trying to avoid the disaster in the first place.

Wrong Hillary! Benghzai does make a difference!

Benghazi – four Americans dead. Our DOJ has decided on a new rule – no-one can share any information on what happened until they completely conclude their investigation and a trial.  (They apparently made this rule up all on their own.)  The “clever” bit – they are not conducting an investigation in the first place.  Known terrorists who participated are conducting interviews with foreign journalists … but we can’t find them.  Our program that give millions in financial awards to help find wanted terrorists?  None of these specifically identified terrorists are listed. For over a year now, US citizens have been held and threatened to keep them from testifying. (The recent eye witness that completely contradicted everything this administration said about Benghazi was a British citizen…)  As of Benghazi, we in the U.S. now live in a progressive version of a police state.   But as Hillary Clinton said so eloquently, “what difference does it make?”

The Real Threat to Minorities is the Ultimate Inversion!

Constitution of the United States of America
Constitution of the United States of America (Photo credit: The U.S. National Archives)

The way I see it, the smallest and most endangered minority in America is the individual. It clearly follows then that, those who work to deny an individual’s rights cannot truly claim to be defenders of minorities!

Individual rights (or inalienable rights) are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the inalienable rights of a minority; the political function of “a right” is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities … and as I stated earlier … the smallest minority on earth is the individual.

These days, liberals make a concerted effort to obliterate this point, so it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the power of the government, not on private individuals.  The Constitution does not restrict the conduct of private individuals, it only restricts the conduct of the government.  The Constitution is not a charter for government power, but a charter for the citizen’s protection against the abuse of government power.  In my opinion, this is the driving force behind the progressive-liberals discussions of the Constitution needing to be a “living document”, the continuous attacks on the 2nd Amendment, willingness to overlook NSA abuses of power, and even the statements that the Constitution is obsolete and should be thrown out … it stands in opposition to their goals!  If the 2nd Amendment can be removed … how long before other amendments will also be removed?

Obama’s administration assured Americans that the NSA scandal was a non-issue and that there were minimal instances of spying on “innocent” Americans.  Obama stated that over 50 terrorist attempts have been thwarted because of these same NSA spying efforts.  However, a document leaked by Snowden to the Washington Post proves that this is far from an accurate portrayal  Actually, since 2008 (which coincides nicely with the Obama presidency … coincidence?), thousands of incidents of the NSA spying on innocent Americans occur yearly and the “secret” FISA Court, in reality, … has no control over the NSA.  Can you name any of the 50 thwarted terrorist plots?  Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat, expressed real concern that he sees no evidence of any terrorist plots being thwarted by spying on innocent Americans.  Isn’t it odd that while Bush was in office, the liberal minions were screaming hysterically about abuses of government power over the very same type of NSA activities.  These activities have been greatly increased under the Obama administration, yet now these minions are strangely silent. Snowden, in spite of the fact  that what he did was wrong and illegal, may turn out to be a hero.

Progressive liberals know that there is no real way to “rule” innocent men. The only real power any administration has is the power to crack down on criminals.  So, when there aren’t enough criminals to make controlling their subjects feasible, a corrupt government will simply make innocent men criminals by declaring so many things to be a crime that it becomes virtually  impossible for men to live without breaking some law.

The goal of the progressive-liberals, as history clearly shows us, is to force this country into big government welfare by a series of slow working, barely discernible, yet specific measures:  enlarging the power of the government a step at a time, never permitting these steps to be summed up into stated principles, never permitting their true goal to be identified, and ridiculing or demonizing free Americans who stand up and called them on it. Their plan is for a socialist big government nanny-state to prevail … but not by choice (as in votes) or by violence.  They are quietly working to achieve their goals by a long process of deceit, evasion, and epistemological corruption; leading to an eventual  “done deal.”  ObamaCare, Fast and Furious, Benghazi,  assaults on the Second Amendment, and the current NSA scandals are perfect examples of this plan in action.  Obama lives like Joseph Stalin while freedom-loving individuals, labeled “deniers,” are ridiculed, spied upon and made targets of government oppression.   The sad thing is that many Republicans, like John McCain, Chris Christie, and John Boehner, are party to the plan because they actually see themselves as part of the new American Aristocracy … and not as freedom loving individuals!  The goal of every freedom loving American must be to stop them … period!

I asked a liberal co-worker once, “what my fair share of his pay check was!”  He laughed it off, but clearly was not happy with my question.  Hard-working “A” student were once asked if they would share their A’s with those that got C’s … so everyone could get a B.  They were not to happy with the idea!  Seems it never hurts when it is someone else’s money in question!

Obama and his cronies’ political ideology survives by looting (spun as “taxing the rich” and “getting your fair share”), but a free country truly survives on production.  Look at our history objectively!  America’s great abundance was not created by public sacrifices to “the common good.” This is simply a silly fairy tale!  America’s success and greatness  was created by the productive genius of free men who pursued their own personal interests and made their own private fortunes. They did not starve the people to pay for America’s industrialization like Obama is doing.  They gave the people better jobs, higher wages and cheaper goods with every new machine they invented, with every scientific discovery or technological advance created.  Because of this, the whole country moved forward and profited … and we were not suffering, every step of the way under burdensome taxes and regulation.  Yes … some people were richer than others and some were even down right poor!  Can you point to any other nation were that situation does not exist?  Can France, Russia, Sweden, China say they have no poor people?  Did they ever achieve the economic greatness of the United States?  No … they did not!

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the  government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by  permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the  stage of rule by brute force.

~ Ayn Rand

Freedom is truly  the first necessary requirement of “the common good”  … America’s real achievements rested solely on that foundation in the past and could not have existed without it. We need to restore real freedom if we are going to have a future!

Are We Confused Yet?!

English: President Barack Obama's signature on...

I sure am …

So Obama tells us, on one hand, that al Qaeda is defeated and on the run; while on the other hand he foments Islamic revolutions, arms terrorists and gives our fighter jets and tanks to the Muslim brotherhood … while he slashes the U.S. military and is working hard to disarm law-abiding citizens!
Meanwhile, the liberal drive-by mass media reports “U.S. Law Makers Rattled” (I am sure al Qaeda was thrilled to read this report) by new non-specific “specific threat” that will certainly be used to justify increased cavity searches at American airports and NSA spying on American citizen’s phone calls and emails … and we close 20+ embassies (We sure don’t want another Benghazi Gate)!
Of course, all this comes after spending over $2 trillion to defeat al Qaeda and their “man-caused disasters” and “over-seas contingencies”!
So, now we have new al Qaeda affiliates are cropping up all over the place like Yemen and Boston, … probably well-funded with U.S. taxpayer dollars via that same Muslim brotherhood Obama gave billions of dollars to!
Then in the name of Homeland Security, Eric Holder prosecutes our border states who attempt to protect their own borders by enforcing the federal laws he refuses to enforce … while hiding behind “Executive Privilege” to cover up his incompetence and gun-running schemes in Mexico … also while labeling the Tea Party, American veterans, and Christians as terrorists.
Meanwhile, Union leaders like Jimmy Hoffa Jr., finally realizing ObamaCare is as bad as we told them it was before Pelosi passed it to find out what was in it, are calling for it to be fixed, unfunded, or repealed … and in response, Obama simply gives his “rattled” Congress an exemption from that same ObamaCare!
SO…  is the crème-de-la-crème of the liberal democratic party?  Are you freaking kidding me?  Yay!

Barack Obama: Extortion 17 to Benghazi

Imbecile

Extortion 17:  I think it is time true Americans stand and be counted.  It is truly no longer a time to “accept the things we cannot change.”  It is time to change the things we cannot accept.

Want some truth?

Seal Team 6, America’s most elite special operations team, was sent to their slaughter in the most obscenely mismanaged military failure in recent Naval history.  93 days after Seal Team 6 got Osama Bin Laden (we should not even know this) they were stupidly sent to their death in what was probably an Al Qaeda planned ambush.  Joe Biden put the targets on their backs, Obama‘s “Rules of Engagement” let it happen.  They were sent into a landing zone in the middle of 3 hour long battle, in a slow moving 28-year-old CH-47D Chinook because our military does not have enough MH-47s … and with no pre-landing suppressive fire (those troublesome rules of engagement again).

Want some more truth?

In the 11 years we have been waging war in Afghanistan, 79% of those killed or wounded have been under Obama’s leadership.  During the 8 years of the Bush administration, 2072 American soldiers came home wounded from Iraq/Afghanistan.  In only the last 3 years under Obama, 14,977 American soldiers have come home wounded.  Obama increases the number of American soldiers being wounded in action almost as fast as he increases our debt!

Who would you rather have in charge if your son or daughter was serving in our military?  I served in the military.  American sons and daughters volunteer to fight to defend  the country they love; not to be sent in to be sacrificed or slaughtered because of some radical leftist president’s ideological love-fest with radical Muslims.

Did you ever stop to wonder what Obama and Clinton were trying so hard to cover up in Benghazi?  (I mean, besides their sheer incompetence)  Maybe … missiles to Syria?  Just asking …

ObamaCare: Killing An Already Dying Economy!

Barack Obama signing the Patient Prot...

Can you say … Duh!  The Affordable Care act (ObamaCare), Obama’s only real achievement since becoming president in 2008, is in real serious trouble. A new AP poll finds that only 1/3 of Americans support his takeover of our nation’s healthcare system.

Many small businesses have already had to start cutting employee hours or even have been forced to have layoffs to avoid the business-killing regulations imposed by ObamaCare.  This has not helped an already terrible economy.  To make matters worse, the recovery has also been further stalled by uncertainty as Obama’s massive tax hikes (you know, the ones Nancy Pelosi had to “pass” the bill to see were hidden in it) have slowly come into the light.   But then, Pelosi can just exempt herself from ObamaCare … can’t she.  Handy … isn’t it!

Small businesses aren’t the only ones trying to mitigate Obama’s jobs-killing rules, either. Even unions have begun to understand how bad ObamaCare will be and have started making noises … and asking if it should be repealed.

Remember Obama’s claim that his new law would lower medical costs for all? Now, even the government is admitting that costs will actually go up as a result of ObamaCare. In fact, insurance rates and healthcare costs are skyrocketing as the full effect of ObamaCare is beginning to be realized.  Maybe somebody should have read it before Congress rammed it on through!  Ironically, Sen. Democrat leader Harry Reid just recently asked for even more money for ObamaCare.

Some elected Democrats are running scared over their support of ObamaCare, worried that it will cost them their seats.  And it should!  Republican or Democrat, we pay our representatives a six-figure salary to do their jobs … which should, I would think, include reading and understanding the legislation they are voting to pass.

ObamaCare is making healthcare costs go up,  is already making healthcare harder to get, is already driving doctors out of the field, is driving up the costs of business, depressing wages, and is hurting our already delicate economy.  We have Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their group of radical, non-reading left-wing thugs to thank for that!  Remember that in 2016!
