Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

People can vote in many ways. First off, of course, there is the ballot box. People can also vote with their feet. California has seen people fleeing the state in droves in order to escape the high taxes and even higher crime rates.

People also can vote with their wallets. A study from American University reports that an overwhelming majority of young people plan to purchase firearms. Campus Reform reports:

Sixty percent of high school and college students say they plan on owning guns at a later stage in life, an academic study from American University revealed on Monday.

The study results are based on a sample of over 4000 high school and college students. This sample size is far larger than your typical political tracking poll, which usually samples 1000 people. The sample is therefore large enough to be statistically sound, which is math speak for, “It is representative of the population sampled.” Considering how our political class is trying to score points off the tragedy in CT, this trend should give them pause.

Our Founding Father’s had a firm grasp of what is required to secure and safe guard liberty. We, as a society, have dismissed their wisdom. We may grow to regret this. For those who support the 2nd amendment, an “I told you so.” will be cold comfort.

Warning: Graphical language laced with utter stupidity.

The Obama and his supporters have gone full retard with this one.

Defn:To act 100% retarded with extra no redeeming special quality.

Ex: Downey, “Everybody knows you never do a full retard.”

In comparison the children singing campaign ad is artwork. How low is the Obama campaign and its fellow travelers going to go? Obama started with Hope, Change, saving the planet from rising oceans. It was silly, but it was designed to inspire. Obama is now ending with an assault on his opponent genitalia? We have achieved junior high gross with this ad. Is this campaign for real?

The Democrats have tried a campaign of softball interviews on Letterman, Leno and the View in order to keep the Messiah’s cluelessness from being put on display. Since that strategy collapsed utterly in the first debate, they are trotting this out as Plan B? Who is the brain trust in Chicago that thinks this is going to help them?

Re-Electing President Obama Is A Momentous Decision That Will Require Every Single Voter. What Would The Children Of The Future Say If We Let Them Down This November?

This ode to Orwell’s Oceana will back fire. Stripmines Fun and Free? Sick people just die? Oil fills the sea? My first response to the string of over-the-top Democrat talking points sung by the mindless cherubs was, “Forget you.” First off, no Republican is considering filling the sea with oil you hapless drones. Sick people dying is what happens under socialist a.k.a. government-controlled healthcare, and no one is proposing strip mining, or mining of any sort that is unregulated. They sing about endless war, which is a term right out Orwell’s novel. The interesting thing is Obama was the president who violated the War Powers Act, not Booosh.

What is truly sad is that it is the Obama-Democrat policies that will have us accused by children and grand children who will ask, “What were you thinking?” They might also ask “Why am I in debt to the tune of $100K because you could not say ‘enough’!?” Or, “You voted for someone because you felt guilty?” Or, “What was so wrong about questioning the Dear Leader?”

Obama is an Alinski-ite. This ad is right out of the playbook: Trash your opponents, make them react, fault them for their reaction. The trouble is that both sides have learned the playbook. The result will be action not reaction.

This commercial is so unjust, so enraging, the effect will be to motivate those who would otherwise only vote for Romney. People will now go out and knock on doors, stuff envelops, drive people to the polling stations for the Republicans. This should motivate one and all to put up Romney-Ryan signs. People won’t just vote for Romney, they will be writing checks, and working for the Romney campaign — in response to this campaign ad.

With this ad Team Obama has announced they are giving up on the undecideds and independents. They are now hoping for a turn out election. They are looking to motivate their demoralized base. This ad is the opposite of hope and change, it is the embodiment of a scorched earth policy. Playing this ad in a presidential year is a huge mistake; this is an off cycle year campaign ad. The Democrats are demonstrating utter desperation with these singing props.

Lastly, at the rate we are going it is not just Chinese stuff in our stores, it is Chinese ownership of our country’s debt. They already own $1.1T in US treasury bills. Foreign ownership of American dept has exploded under Obama. Some speculate that Obama is looking to take the U.S. down a peg. By now we should be able to peg Obama as a hollow, left-wing, ideological zealot. A community organizer is just another term for rabble-rouser. This empty suite has never worked for a private concern let alone made pay roll. Obama is a product of the Chicago Political Machine. He does not get economics, nor does he understand the lawlessness of his administration. Obama just does not get it, and he never will.

This is interesting. The opposite of the self important narcissism is called humility. Obama is a walking monument to hubris. It appears that Romney is more of the genuine article than the cypher will ever be, or could be. He is certainly more genuinely decent than the caricature presented by the Democrats and their operatives.

The messiah is a leader in a cult of personality. Teachers brainwashed children to sing praises of him. This is the repeated pattern of a cult. This certain cult has been a scourge on humanity since its inception. It will never go away, so long as there is envy in men’s hearts. It will require the eternal vigilance of good men to keep it in check — lest liberty fade. Socialism is the political expression of envy in its most hateful form. Be it national socialism, or the communism of Mao. It is all the same evil cult.

The Republicans have some talent in their bullpen. Jindal, McDaniels, Ryan, Paul (to name a few). I have a feeling after the fiasco of the past four years, it will be another 30 before the Democrats, who are now openly progressive socialists, will see a victory like 2008. The Republicans still need to expunge the shame that is the Bush legacy. But that will fade quicker now that we have had four years of Obama.

Obama X


So this is the guy we elected? The Redistributor in Chief? The man sees the world in clear lines of division. Rich v. Poor. Haves v. Have nots. The pie is only so big, and we need to carve it up ‘fair.’ OK. This is the typical socialist class warfare mantra. This is the message of the leftist — the economy does not grow, you cannot win, its just a question of how do the spoils of the nation economy get distributed. This itself is cause for alarm. All that talk about bringing prosperity is to all is really about robbing Paul to gratify Peter.

The scarier part is that he reveals himself to be a believer in racial spoils as well. He see the world in terms of Black v. White. This is racism. Racism fused with Socialism is Fascism. Obama has been a cypher since his waltzing on to the American National Political stage. It has been quite the performance. Why did it take so long for his birth certificate to finally become available. His birth was announced in several papers, so why not cough up the document and avoid the conjecture? Why are his transcripts sealed? Why is there evidence that he passed himself off as a foreign student? Why is this guy a chameleon who is truly a different man before different people. He is a politician, but why this degree of blatant dishonesty?

He ran on being the great uniter. Hope and Change. On this very blog the delusioned intoned solemnly that he is a conservative. Today the OWS types rant on about being betrayed by their Dear Leader. When the hype is that you are all things to all people, the reality is that you are nothing. This president tripled the number of Czars and unilaterally cut our nuclear arsenal by two thirds. Obama nearly double the national debt four years, and halved the rate of growth in GDP. He shut down drilling off our coasts, and on our federal lands and sent Billions of our dollars to Brazil to subsidize their oil production? Who side is Barry Soetero a.k.a. Harrison J. Bounel a.k.a Barack Obama a.k.a really on?

To say that Biden was an ass last night is an injustice. It is an injustice to all the asses of this world. Putting them in the same corner with this clown is patently unfair. The trouble is that this facile thug, masquerading as a serious politician, is beyond the pale. Ryan was respectful of his elder. The trouble is that his elder was soiling himself on stage while conducting a war on women, with Raddatz Biden’s target dejour.

Biden did himself no favors, he was the grin with a body behind it. Red meat for the OWS crowd. Biden interrupted Ryan 82 times, giggling in between and making little sense when he would start shouting. No doubt about it, Chris Matthews had another tingle down his leg. This debate performance will not do well with undecided voters of flyover country. This sort of performance does fine in Philadelphia, but not Des Moines. Still, give the Biden his due, he did fire up the base. Which was a must after Obama’s debate debacle.

Reading the transcript, I would give points to Ryan for Libya, and Biden for Afghanistan. On the home front, Ryan got the better of the Biden overall, but unlike Obama, Biden actually put in a performance. Unlike the Messiah, Biden looked like he wanted to be there. The polls declaring who won are split, and the margins are all in the low single digits. Such a result is the norm. Blowouts like what Romney did to Obama are very rare. It requires that you opponent be a flaccid, clueless, detached, empty-suit in order to garner a 50+ point spread in your favor. Obama, despite protestations of the left, was himself that night. No teleprompter, no script, no prepped-for questions planted in the press pool. Just a clueless, lost, community-organizer in way-over his head.

Biden needs to take a class on Geography; the alleged foreign policy expert does not know the relative sizes of Libya and Syria. More importantly, how is it Biden can in one debate throw the intel community under the bus regarding Stevens’ murder in Benghazi and then pivot, and place absolute faith in their prowess regarding the Iranian nuclear program? Finally, the hard part in making a nuclear bomb is not the bomb assembly, it is the collection if fissile material for the bomb. This is a lie with monstrous implications.

My bs-o-meter finally broke last night when Biden intoned that his Catholic faith defines him; the spring shot out through the glass display and put a hole in the ceiling. There also were the lou-lou’s regarding the Libyan embassy debacle, the meter pegged red so hard it bent the needle. The sorry return to the mythical $5T in tax cuts was another peg-red moment. Still, considering Biden’s handicap, I should not be surprised that he can’t tell the truth even if his life depends on it.

The question then is what does this mean for the upcoming debates? With the bleeding stopped, can team Messiah recapture the lost momentum, and lost voters? The poll aggregates are trending against Team Blue since the first debate. Obama has a tougher row to hoe than Biden. Smokin’ Joe can afford to be a total ass on TV, Obama cannot. Obama, who is admittedly lazy, needs to come prepared, and have something other than a set of campaign-commercial one-liners memorized. This is a daunting mission, as Obama’s work ethic is not up to the task.

The look on David Gergen’s face at CNN said it all. Obama got hit by a bus. The bus is called reality. Obama has been sheltered by the media for the past six years. softball questions with no follow up. No critique of his answers. No fawning adulation. The shock on Obama’s face was obvious. He was lost. No teleprompter. No command of the facts. I guess he should have stayed with the girls from The View.


Obama was angry. Obama was angry with Jim Lehrer, despite getting FIVE MORE minutes of speaking time than Romney. Obama was angry with Romney, who was busy mopping the floor with him. He was exposed. The emperor has no clothes, for the emperor has no answers. His responses to the questions were the same tired cliches from four years ago.

Obama trudged back to corporate jets for Exxon — Romney educated the president that the $2.5B in oil subsidies go primarily to small wildcat outfits that are the real risk takers in the industry. Romney then asked about the $90B in subsidies to the windmill and solar panel green energy industry, the overwhelming majority of which went to companies that are now failing. Obama has given green energy 50 years worth of oil subsidies in one year. If $2.5B is bad, how much worse is $90B? Obama had no answers. Picking winners and losers is wrong. How much worse is it to only pick losers?

Obama droned on about “Tax breaks for exporting jobs” — Romney never heard of such a thing, and he has over 20 years running businesses. “Only 5% of business are purely owner operated, so what is the problem with raising corporate taxes?”, says Obama. “That 5% creates three quarters of all the new jobs”, is the reason why Mr. President. Romney was spot on, it is about employment. Each new job is a double win for the country. Each job means one less unemployment or welfare check needs to be cut. Each new job means more taxes can be collected, without raising the rates.

Looking at his shoes, like some errant schoolboy, Obama got his head handed back to him. Implementing the recommendations in the Simpson-Bowles report would have been better than doing what Obama did do, which has been nothing. Obama crowed how it is now going through to the congress. Mr President, you have had four years to turn this report into a bill, and then into law. How about a budget Mr President?

Obama claims to have found $4T in cuts in the federal budget. So why has the budget run deficits of over $1.2T each year he has been in office? Obama had a super majority for 2 years and has had the senate for all four. Romney worked with a Democrat super majority as governor. What has been obvious is Obama does not know how to work across party lines. At. All.

We are in trouble in this country. We need leadership. What we got is Obama. Obama is a shadow of James Earl Carter. James Earl Carter was the worst president in US history, until now.
