In the last couple of days, the news has come out that the President has released a list of some private citizens who have donated to Mitt Romney’s campaign.  According to the Wall Street Journal article, these donors were demonized and made to sound criminal, though they have committed no crimes.  The idea is to make Mitt Romney look bad by making those who contribute to him look bad.

President Obama isn’t the first president to use this tactic.  Richard Nixon did it too.  However, after the outrage the American people expressed at such techniques, those who followed Nixon chose not to do the same.  Until now.

Look, I can’t really fault President Obama for looking at those who donate and support Mitt Romney.  I don’t think the actions of these donors are anything bad, and neither do many Republicans.  But, I do believe it is a fair and reasonable thing to do to look at the people supporting a candidate.  So that begs the question:  Who is looking into Obama’s donors and supporters??

If we follow the President’s reasoning, we could certainly tell a lot about Barack Obama by those who support him and donate to his campaign.  Now, the mainstream media didn’t do this in 2008, and likely won’t do it this year either.  And because they weren’t willing to vet Obama, we ended up with someone in the White House who works to lead the United States into a socialist country, and calls the Constitution a “charter of negative liberties.”  Because they weren’t willing to vet Obama, we have someone in the White House who has contempt toward those who are financially successful (never mind his millions).  Because they weren’t willing to vet Obama, we have someone in the White House who believes capitalism and free market principles are evil.  Since the mainstream media, which the majority of Americans watch and listen to and believe, will not do the job they should, the rest of us have to.

So, let’s take a look at some of those who support Obama and contribute to his campaign.  If we are to judge Romney by that, let’s do the same for Obama.

Here are some of his supporters, in no particular order.

     
Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn:  Married, college    professors, and once leaders of the domestic terrorist group The Weather Underground.  They were responsible for many bombings in the 1960’s and 1970’s, including a New York City police station and the US Capitol Building.  In an article that appeared, ironically, on September 11, 2001, in the New York Times, Bill Ayers, stated:  “I don’t regret setting bombs, I feel we didn’t do enough.”  REALLY?!  The Weather Underground did some absolutely awful things.  Too many to list here.  Look them up, then ask yourself if the President of the United States should have these people in his close circle.  (Oh, did I      mention, Obama began his political career IN THE HOME OF AYERS AND DOHRN?) The Weather Underground was also part of Students for a Democratic Society.  Look them up too.  No good.

     Jeremiah Wright:  Reverend, Pastor Emeritus at Trinity United Church – the church the Obama’s attended for over 20 years, anti-American, anti-Semite.  The man who married the Obama’s and baptized their two daughters, Reverend Wright has not been shy with his hateful remarks (this is just one, out of many examples).   One must ask themselves why it is that our President attended this man’s church for 20 years and how he could sit for 20 years in the pews and not come away with some of the same beliefs espoused by the Reverend Wright?  Look it up, see what he’s said, then ask yourself if the President of the United States should be associating with someone like that.

Louis Farrakhan:  Leader of the Nation of Islam, anti-American, anti-Semitic.  He has consistently been hateful toward Israel and Jewish people and the United States.  This is not the kind of person the President of the United States should be associating himself with.  Look him up too, and ask yourself why Barack Obama would be associating with this man.

Raul Castro:  Brother of Fidel Castro and leader of Communist Cuba.  Don’t you feel better knowing a Communist dictator supports having Barack Obama for our President?

Daniel Ortega:  President of Nicaragua, devout Marxist.  Yet another winner of a leader supporting our President.  Makes you wonder why Communists and Marxists would be supporting him, doesn’t it?

Sean Penn:  Hollywood actor, outspoken activist and Socialist.  Sean Penn has made clear where he sits on the political spectrum and it is so very far to the left.  He has played buddy buddy with Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez (also a communist) and former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro (also a communist).  He spouts hateful anti-American rhetoric, yet stays loyal to President Obama.  What is going on there?

Other groups supporting President Obama:  Socialist Party USA, Communist Party Illinois (among others), the New Black Panther Party (a very violent group), and Hamas (an Islamic terrorist group).

These are just some of his supporters.  I haven’t even begun on who actually works in the White House under this President.

I think it is time the country woke up and saw President Obama for what he really is.  You really need to ask yourself why are these anti-American people supporting Barack Obama?  What do they know about him and why would they want him to be in control of the White House?  Educate yourself.  Don’t just follow blindly what the media tells you about Obama.

President Obama wants to look at Mitt Romney’s supporters, that’s just fine with me.  But I will surely do the same with President Obama’s.

I’ve been hearing all kinds of class warfare rhetoric lately.  Well, not just lately, really for the last 3 years, but it’s been amplified lately.  Why??  Because Mitt Romney is running for President.  That makes a difference, you see, because Mitt Romney is rich.  He’s not Bill Gates rich, but the man has a ridiculous amount of money.  I mean, the guy is totally loaded.

So, apparently, that’s a bad thing.  I think I missed the memo on that, because I’m confused.

I thought the “American Dream” was to be able to work hard and earn money and do better and get more money and so on.  People could work hard, maybe start their own business and become really successful.  I think the dream has turned into a nightmare.  See, now when you become super successful, you become the villain – and, it doesn’t even matter what you do with that money.

The new mantra is we need to take money from those evil rich people and give it to the poor.  (Can anyone say Robin Hood?  – but more on that later.)  The poor (and by that I don’t mean those who are really poor, those people living on the street, or living with bare cupboards; I mean those people who would rather pay for their cable TV and cell phones than their own food.  I mean those who live off the taxpayers and have ginormous televisions and nice vehicles in the drive way.) have become heroes, while those who pay for their food and government housing have become the bad guys.  Are you as confused by this as I am?

I just don’t get it.  And, I’m left with several questions.  When did becoming successful and rich become bad?  When did the “American Dream” get turned totally on it’s head?  How much money do you earn before you become bad?  How much of a person’s money should they be allowed to keep?  Why is being filthy stinking rich a bad thing?  Why are we rewarding idleness and punishing hard work?

I keep asking my liberal friends and I can’t get an answer.

Really, what I believe is that if you are in power, and want to fundamentally change this country, perhaps run with socialist and Marxist principles, you have to make the wealthy the villains and make the poor (who again, really aren’t poor) completely dependent on the government, and then you get away with it by calling it “fair.”

Well, folks, life isn’t fair.  Sometimes that really sucks.  But, it’s fact.

As for me, I love rich people.  I wish I was one of them, but I am most definitely not.  I love rich people though, because they create jobs.  I love them because (for the most part) they are hard workers.  They often became rich because they had a brilliant idea.  I say hooray for them!  I hope I can be as rich as Mitt Romney some day!  I also hope I can give million upon millions of dollars to charities, just as Mitt Romney does.  I hope the principles of capitalism win out over those of Karl Marx.  And you can bet your government check I’ll be teaching my children to strive to be successful and that they,  with enough hard work and ingenuity, can become stinking rich one day too!

I gave up on this blog a while ago, as you can easily tell by the date of my last post.  Mostly, I just had a lot of things competing for my time, and this was not on the top of my priority list.  I still have a lot of demands on my time, but I’m managing them much better.

Anyhow, I’ve been thinking for quite a while that I should resurrect this thing and use it for what I originally intended it for.  I’ve had so many thoughts lately swirling around in my head, mostly about politics.  What can I say?  That’s just how I’m wired.  I just need a place to get it all out.

Alright, topic number one:  Being a hateful republican.

So, here’s where I am at.  I am sick and tired of people saying that I am racist, homophobic,  anti-old people, anti-young people, anti-healthcare, against the poor, hateful and tyrannical, and let’s not forget that I obviously hate the planet.  I’m sure I missed some, but you get the point.

I really need someone to explain to me how being a conservative, a republican and someone who identifies with the TEA party makes me any of these things?  Because last time I checked, I’m not.  I’m really tired of being endlessly bashed just because I want a smaller, more responsible government.  It’s quite absurd, really.

Honestly, there comes a point where I just have to say enough is enough!  I’m sick and tired of sitting back and allowing people to label me this way.  And, I’ve found, when I ask people to explain it to me- to explain to me why they believe those things, they can’t.  Explain any logical reasoning behind their claims.  There is simply no evidence.  It’s simply liberal talking points and very untrue stereotypes.  It’s sad, really, that this is what we’ve come to.  The left really feels the only way to accomplish their radical goals is to dupe the country into believing that those of us on the right are full of hate and vitriol.  Because, really, who wants to be associated with people who hate?  It’s a basic fear tactic.  If they call people racist or homophobic or something similar in nature, others will not want to join them. Well, guess what, just because I disagree with the President’s policies doesn’t make me a racist.  It makes me someone who disagrees with his policies.

Here’s my message for the left:  Frightening people away by labeling us racists and such will not stop the truth from coming out.  Facts are facts.  And, the fact is, in countries where liberal policies are tried, they fail.  That’s a fact.  Look at Greece.  Look at France.  Look at Spain.  Heck, Western Europe is in a HUGE mess and it is because of the failed liberal policies of entitlement they have enacted across the continent. And by liberal, I mean socialist, because, let’s be honest here, that’s what it is.  When you take from one to give to another, you have socialism.    You cannot force charity and that’s what many of these entitlements are doing.  Take from some (notice how those people aren’t given a choice as to whether or not they want to help) and give to others.  Socialism, baby.  Wouldn’t Marx be proud?!

Margaret Thatcher once said, “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

I know the hate mongering from the left won’t stop.  In fact, it’s likely to just get worse.  Let them label me whatever they will, but, I can, and will, combat those lies with the truth.  I refuse to sit back and be lied about any longer.  I know who I am and what I believe, and I will stand up for those things which I believe to be right and true.

In watching recent events, I’ve come to believe more and more that this country is rapidly sliding towards Socialism, Marxism, and eventually Communism.  Extreme?  No, I truly don’t believe so.  The liberties and freedoms that have been taken from us are growing, and more and more are at risk.  So many people can’t see what is right before their eyes.  How quickly people will willingly give up their freedoms in the name of safety or entitlement or countless other excuses.  But what it really comes down to is the government controlling more and more aspects of our daily lives and our freedoms falling by the wayside.  For those who might say that this is just because I don’t like Barack Obama, think again.  This is not an Obama thing, (more…)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and that’s for a couple reasons.  The first, I’ve been really super busy.  Second, sometimes words seem inadequate to express my thoughts on certain things, generally politically.  But, there are just way too many things going on that I’d like to comment on, so I’m going to touch on them today. 

First, what seems to have become a big story:  Sarah Palin vs. David Letterman.  I find it ridiculous that Letterman would joke about a 14year old (and yes, it was the 14 year old daughter not the 19 year old) girl being sexually assaulted.  I find it ridiculous that Letterman would joke and call Gov. Palin “slutty.”  On this, I have two questions.  1.  What would have been the repercussions if a conservative comedian made those kind of jokes about liberals, say Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, or the Obamas?  There would have been extreme outrage.  (And let me just say the jokes were distasteful, and I would think the same regardless of who the jokes were about.)  However, because the jokes were about conservative Governor Sarah Palin and her family, there are just excuses being made, none of which I buy, by the way.  It is absurd the extreme double standard that exists in mainstream media.  Of course that is nothing new, but it’s still irritating.  2.  What would Dave say if someone made jokes like that about his child or wife?

Second, the elections in Iran.  Initially, I favored the defeat of Ahmadinejad because I thought the contender, Mousavi, would be better on international issues.  However, I don’t think there would be much difference between the two as far a international policy.  However, I still think Mousavi would be great for the country because he supports more freedoms for the people of Iran, and he has a great deal of support from the citizens in Iran.  And, personally, I think any steps toward freedom are good, and in a country like that, they will be small steps.  Now, this morning, it’s coming out that Ahmadinejad has been declared the winner of the election.  The results are highly contested and controversial.  This was supposed to be a very close race, and it seems astounding that he would loose by such a huge margin, let alone in his own home town.  People have taken to the streets in protest, and frankly, that’s a great thing to see in a country so tightly ruled.  The Interior Ministry of the country has blocked communications, including text messaging, and pulled newspapers from the stands.  So, we actually know more here, than the people in Iran do.  Something is foul about all this, to be sure. 

What next?  Ah, yes, North Korea.  First of all, I think we can all agree that Kim Jong-Il is completely crazy.  The idea of this guy being in charge of weapons (more…)

Those around me know that I am deeply opposed to this stimulus plan that Obama wants passed.  One must ask why he feels the need to bankrupt the country even more?  And why send us even further down the Socialist and Marxist path?  The answer is easy – power.  When you make people dependent on the government, the government has absolute power in their lives.  Scary.  The man that said he was going to bring change and hope to the country is doing just that, but it’s the wrong kind.  As for change, all he’s done is change back to Clinton, FDR era, and Soviet politics.  I think even FDR would say he’s too far left.  Obama is going far beyond trying to help this country; he’s trying to take it in a completely socialist direction.  I don’t know about you, but his plans look more and more like old school Soviet tactics.  Not something I’m looking forward to.  It’s change alright, but not the kind I want any part of!  Now, let’s talk about hope.  The only hope Obama has inspired in me is hope that things won’t be as bad as they appear to be.  I have hope that I’ll still be able to have a say in my children’s upbringing when he is finished.  I have hope that I’ll still be able to own my home and be able to strive for success.  And, I have hope that Conservatism will make a comeback (after all, we had to have Carter to get Reagan). 

So, I was reading a very interesting article over at Ask Heritage (part of The Heritage Foundation), about this stimulus.  It is amazing how truly bad this plan is!  Thank goodness for the House Republicans and 11 Democrats who voted against it (in a truly bi-partisan vote)!  I only have hope that the Senate Republicans will have the same brains and courage to stand up for not only Conservative values, but what is right.  Anyway, check out this article and the real costs of this so-called stimulus package.  By the way, they are just going to call any spending and tax increases “stimulus” so that the vast majority of drive-by media watching Americans will think it is a good thing.  So check out this graphic.  Not the kind of spending I’m into!

Yup, he said it!  Redistribution of wealth…spread the wealth around. 

The Warren Court wasn’t radical enough for him?  He thinks they should have done more?  Thank goodness they didn’t!
