It amazes me how people want justice but only on their terms and only if it goes the way they think it should. Our country has a history which in some cases is not something to brag about. The Democrat created and controlled KKK was the military arm of the Democrats who murdered southern Republicans politicians as well as thousands of minorities, mainly blacks in not just southern states, but any state they were allowed in which at one time was all the states. What many may not realize is these lynchings were not only carried out by a mob but many times by the government officials trying to appease their people, they would cry wolf even when no wolf was around like what happened in Rosewood Florida in 1923. A white woman after some said being denied attention by a black man claimed she was raped, the white people, many associated with the Democratic party and KKK without checking any facts or even caring about the evidence set out and murdered all the blacks in Rosewood, only 9 survived.
Today, it is ironic that we have the same type scenario playing out again in Ferguson and the once oppressed are doing the oppressing. Michael Brown, a black man who with drugs in his system had just committed assault and robbed a store, allegedly then attacked a cop and was killed. He did commit a crime unlike the people at Rosewood but yet many on his side are calling for the officer, Darren Wilson, a white man to be lynched no matter what the evidence says. Ask yourself a question, if this would have been a black cop would this be going on, NO. Do the thugs who descended on really care about Michael Brown, NO, if they did, they wouldn’t have destroyed and looted the store owners and residence property, most of whom are minorities themselves including the store owner who Michael Brown robbed; they only care about stealing and raising chaos. Their leaders have caused this, no matter what happens, if it was done at the hands of a white person it was unjust, but more blacks are killed by other black with no other group coming close and nothing comes from the leaders to try and fix this problem.
The problem is the Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson type of leaders are not leaders, they are instigators and scam artist, they don’t care about Michael Brown, they only care about stoking up the flames of the race war, because without it, they are nothing. They have a very long history of doing this and if you allow racism from any race to taint the judicial process then don’t complain the next time a Rosewood happens. Eric holder is already accused this man of being guilty without any evidence but wouldn’t indict the New Black Panthers of Voter Intimidation even with video evidence; wasn’t the purpose of the KKK to intimidate voters? Would you like it if a white president with a white attorney general did the same for the KKK? I don’t think so and I would not be on their side either, many out there including the Ferguson protesters have to realize something, injustice is injustice; no matter what race is committing it. Calling for the lynching of Darren Wilson and destroying the businesses at Ferguson makes the Ferguson protesters no better than the members of the KKK who in 1923 massacred, all but 9 of the people at Rosewood.Two wrongs do not make a right.
I am not for the Democrats or the Republicans; I am on the side of America and the true American citizens and we need to get back to what is best for our Country and its citizens. What has changed and weakened our Country, what has both the Democratic and Republican parties done to hurt our country, can you tell them apart because sometimes I can’t tell one from the other. Both parties have damaged America but I do believe the liberals from both parties are responsible for the majority of the destruction.
We have these stanch party voters who always vote strait ballot, this is all they know, and there truly isn’t much difference between establishment Democrats and Republicans. Both have raised taxes, both have spent more than taken in, both have lied to the American people, both bow to special interest groups, both have cut the military, both has thrown religious freedom under the bus, both has allowed agencies (IRS, EPA, FDA, BLM, CIA, NSA, FBI) to rape the people, both have allowed activist judges to run rough shot on American citizens, and both have undermined the US constitution; so what is the difference? The 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 10th Amendments have been trampled on to the point that it has become a badge of honor for many liberal politicians to take their own cut at them. Many of the peoples picks to be their representatives are pushed aside for the representatives the Democrat and Republican establishment want, even to the point of shutting down primaries by both parties to shoe in their picks; this isn’t what our Founding Fathers would want or the American Citizens. We need to research the politicians before you vote in the primary and get rid of the Nancy Pelosi and John McCain types who are destroying this country.
The first problem we have is with our Free Press, they are to be the watch dogs to ensure the government is doing everything on the up and up and report it to the people. Our current “Press” refuses to do their duty of exposing and reporting abuse of power or illegal actions by all politicians equally. Currently it depends on if they like the politician in office; if two politicians do the same offence, they will report on the one and bury the other like the reporting on Mr. Guber, one station will have 20 stories on this important item yet other will have none because it reflects badly on the current administration. The current press leadership, like at CNBC have even silenced reporters like Melissa Francis if they report unfavorably on President Obama, telling her it was “disrespecting the office of the President” to report the truth. She is a Harvard economic graduate and when she said the numbers didn’t add up for Obamacare she was shut down; what she said turned out to be the absolute truth. Your political view shouldn’t have an influence on your reporting; if you can’t be honest and impartial when reporting on a story to the American people, you need to find a new job. I believe Thomas Jefferson had it right.
"Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost. The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure." Thomas Jefferson
There is a difference from “disrespecting the office of the President” like was done by CNBC to President Bush and telling the truth about a president lying no matter if it is President Bush or President Obama. The National Press has failed our country, our citizens, and our Constitution by covering up lies of one politician and inventing lies against another. Keeping the water “Pure” means telling the truth and not covering up the truth; I’m not sure if our current National press even knows what the word “Truth” means, it’s all about their agenda; the purpose of the press is pointed out by former Supreme Court Justices William Orville Douglas and Justice Hugo Black.
“The dominant purpose of the First Amendment was to prohibit the widespread practice of government suppression of embarrassing information.” William Orville Douglas
"The Founding Fathers gave the free press the protection it must have [to] bare the secrets of government and inform the people." Hugo Black
When the press withholds information from the people it comes at the detriment of our country and freedoms, many time people have voted the wrong person into office because the truth about that person was covered up or the news didn’t vet a false statement to find the truth because it fit their agenda. James Madison, one of our founding fathers I think had it right.
"Nothing could be more irrational than to give the people power, and to withhold from them information without which power is abused. A people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with power which knowledge gives. A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both. James Madison
Currently we have the Federal Court system with judges who are to interpret the laws; instead they are making laws to promote their political activism. The people will vote in a measure which is the US Constitutional procedure just to have an activist judge throw it out as UN-constitutional is wrong; it’s kind of ironic these judges are violating the constitutional procedures by claiming them as UN-constitutional. These judges are suppose to put an injunction on it if it challenged until the state Supreme Court rules, if challenged in the state Supreme Court then the injunction remains until its last stop of challenges at the US Supreme Court, but instead they just strike them down. It seems the law doesn’t matter to these activist judges, only their agenda matters. I think Abraham Lincoln and Harry Truman had it right with Founding Father Thomas Jefferson nailing it home.
“We the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts–not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” Abraham Lincoln
“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.” Harry Truman
"One single object [will merit] the endless gratitude of the society: that of restraining the judges from usurping legislation." Thomas Jefferson
Let’s be fair to both sides, Democrats and Republican administrations have lied and as in 2006, when the people were fed up with the lies and ineptness from the Republican controlled Congress, the people voted the Republicans out just as we seen just happen in 2014 with the Democrats. The people are tired of all the overreach and lies from President Obama and his administration just like President Bush’s Administration in 2006. The big difference this time is when the Republicans were voted out in 2006, President Bush heard the people and did what they requested but President Obama has decided the people don’t matter; he will do whatever he wants. His weapon against the people is the Executive Order which was set up at the beginning of our country to take actions on national emergencies when Congress was not in session, back then it could take weeks to get Congress back to the Capital and something needed to be quickly done which congress could dismiss once back in secession. Executive Orders are not needed anymore; we need to do away with executive orders, line item vetoes, and attaching bills to other bills to pass pork spending. Agencies like the IRS, EPA, FDA and LBM just to name a few need to have completely open books and removed from operating in the dark; if it is being done in the dark, it is probably immoral, illegal, or both and as a cockroach, will disappear when the light of transparency to turned on. These groups along with others have been by passing the US Congress and making regulatory mandates which are laws and are UN-constitutional. Congress did this so when these groups did something unpopular, congress could claim it wasn’t them. Abraham Lincoln had it right.
“We the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts–not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” Abraham Lincoln
The one item that makes us the most vulnerable is the fact that neither party has secured the border and in the current administrations action, even opened it up more to allow illegals to enter. I have no problem with people wanting to come to the US to make a better life but do it legally. No nation out there except the US has open borders like this, and this doesn’t keep our family, friends, or country safe; the boarders need to be secured. Before we help any non US citizens we need to take care of our own citizens first. Currently 16-24 year old US citizens have a 40.8 percent unemployment rate; Chicago’s black teen unemployment rate is 92% so who did you vote for? This is due to bad policies but mainly due to all the illegals in the country, they are being used as slave labor in many cases and will always work for less. The 16-24 year old US citizens needs these jobs to start their future and learn trades for a career. Neither party has been taking care of our citizens first; when are we going to be for our citizens instead of every other country’s citizens? Definitely not President Obama, he is mad because the Democrats lost the majorly first in the House in 2012 and then the Senate in the 2014 election. He is throwing a temper tantrum to get back at the people who rejected him and in true liberal fashion, will once again use Executive Action UN-constitutionally to try and grant amnesty; our president refuses to go by the law and US Constitution. With an Executive Order, President Obama will once again overstep his authority, but what will congress do? I believe our founding fathers had it right.
The very definition of tyranny is when all powers are gathered under one place." James Madison
We definitely have a problem with our economy and much of it has to do with over taxing, people not paying taxes, and our government preventing the US from playing on a level field. To have a vibrant economy you need to keep watering it, not taking all the water away (taxation.) You cannot kill the profit of a person or business through over taxing and expect it to flourish; you will destroy its will and drive. In the exit poll taken after the last election, the number one concern of all Americans was the economy yet the liberals from all parties refuse to support legislation which would boost our economy (Keystone Pipeline); 77% of Americans were worried about the economy with 22% no worried. The poll shows 78% of Americans do not trust the government and granting amnesty is at the bottom of the list for importance with 40% polled saying deport all illegals. What is the focus of President Obama, to give Amnesty illegally by Executive order to 5 million illegals; he isn’t listening to the people. The economy is what needs fixed and as you can see today, both our political parties have become drunk on the amount of money they can force the taxpayer to give them which at current rates is legal robbery. When taxes first came out it was only 2%, now it is 39%, a 1950% increase; the politicians will not be happy till we all have no money left. The tax code is so convoluted even tax experts have problems understanding it; and as we have seen in recent history, the liberals were using the IRS, EPA and others to target political opponents; this cannot happen and this is why 78% of Americans do not trust the government. We need a simple tax code that prevents the rouge politicians from targeting opponents and federal prevents the government from raping the people as is happening currently.
The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them. Patrick Henry
Try this out for size, no taxing on income until your make $30K then it is 1% for every $1K over the $30K until you reach 10% at $40K; the percentage will never go up; no matter how much you make, your federal tax will never go above 10% of your income. You’ll only have 5 deductions, school expenses, medical expenses, church tithes, charitable giving, and primary residence tax deduction. On the primary residence tax deduction, you can only deduct it until you make $500K income then no deduction; the best part is there is no death tax. Once you turn 62 you only pay 5% on your retirement income and investments unless you make less than below $40K, at that point you minus .5% per $1K below $40K. So if you made $33K, you would only pay 1.5% tax. You can never get more then you pay in so if you pay in $3K, your max possible return will be $3K. Now let’s talk businesses, you have a flat 10% for all businesses big or small with no deferments. Foreigners who have businesses will pay from the time they legally step on our soil, the same amount as Americans do with no caveats, if you can’t keep your business going and cannot find a job, you will be deported if you are not a naturalized citizen. For tax purposes you only need two types of business statuses, tax exempt and non tax exempt. Any business caught paying under the table will receive a 25% tax of their last year’s net income. Any country that doesn’t lower their pollution levels (China and India) will have a tariff levied on their imports.
To further help our economy we will not pay any money to countries, who allow Human Trafficking (slavery), child brides, child executions, restrictions on the rights of women, persecute other religions. Remove all treaties which sent any American jobs out of our country, we need to work at bringing our manufacturing base back to America that the liberal establishment has ran off. We also give way too much money away to countries who hate our guts; if they don’t like us why give them our money? All recipients of tax payers money for entitlements will fall into the same oversight as federal workers, they will do jobs for the state, county, city, completing 30 hours a week if they do not have a job and will be required to take random drug test. If they fail their drug test, they will be sent through rehab. If they fail again they will be sent through rehab again. If they fail a third time, all benefits will be revoked until they can pass 45 days of testing drug free. You will only be able to receive benefits for 36 months out of a ten year period. You will only be able to buy basic items with your Bridge Cards (food cards) (milk, cheese, eggs, ect) with no luxury items (no stakes, alcohol, cigarettes, ect.) If you are caught using your Bridge Card for anything other than its attended purpose, such as bying other people food so they will give you cash as an example, you will receive one warning; on the second offence you will lose your Bridge Card for 30 days, third offence 90 days, and fourth offence permanently. If you are on entitlements, you will not get paid extra for kids, the father mother must be named with DNA verification to validate accusations. The absent parent will pay to help offset the states burden, if they cannot or will not pay, they, no matter of gender, will go to jail for being a dead beat parent. We have 47+ agencies doing the same job of entitlements, with many recipients receiving the same help from two different agencies (double dipping). Make one agency with five regions and an individual manager of each state using lean management as the template. This will make these programs more efficient, traceable, and accountable saving the tax payer’s money.
“To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” Thomas Jefferson
“An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy; because there is a limit beyond which no institution and no property can bear taxation.” John Marshall
Education will be sent back to the states, we were always between 1st and 3rd in the world education rankings before the development of the Department of Education, and we need to return. Every state will have a voucher program, if you want to go to a public school or a private school, the choice will be left to the parents. The schools will teach Reading Writing, Arithmetic, Science, Social Studies, ect. Any topic taught with opposing views will have equal time given to the subject; if evolution is given 10 hours than creation will be given 10 hours, if Muslim Culture is given 5 hours then Christian Culture will be given 5 hours, and so on. Vocational Schools will be reinstated, like it or not, not everyone is meant to go to college. Any coed public school or college who discriminates on race, sex, ethnic group, or sexual orientation will lose federal funding. Any coed private school or college who discriminates on race, sex, or ethnic group will lose federal funding. An in residence Reform schools will be set up in all 50 states to send violent, unruly students; this can be removed if parents take full responsibility for their child’s actions and there is a change in attitude, if violent action remains the student will be removed and sent to the Reform School. If it is deemed the parents can afford it, they will be billed for their child’s stay.
You didn’t learn, did you New Hampshire, and now you’re about to lose 75% of your fishing industry due to the liberals you keep voting in office who care more about special interest groups then you; but don’t worry, the rest of New England is in the same boat not to put too fine a point on it. I told you a while back that once the liberal’s special interest groups started targeting industries like the coal and oil industries your fishing industry would be next, I guess I was right. The liberals, mostly Democrats care more about the special interest environmentalist groups then New England’s livelihood which is the fishing industry. The New Hampshire people voted liberal activist Maggie Hassan back in as Governor, Jeanne Shaheen in as Senator, and expected them to stand up for the people over the environmental groups who fund them; good luck on that one. New Hampshire, your State Senate and State House are more liberals and for special interest group, both Republican and Democrats than for the people so you lose again by your own vote.
You need to start reading, watching, and checking what your politicians are voting for, it can greatly affect you as it is doing right now. I don’t believe what any politician says; I look at their voting record to see what they stand for and who they stand with. In this case, your liberal politicians have shown their priorities with a six-month ban on fishing and a next year fishing catch cut of 75%; your politicians are with the far left leaning environmentalist, not you. The question is, will you learn from this overreach and elect better people? The Fishing Industries are going to be screwed for the next few years due to these liberals taking your freedoms, but will you learn from this or keep giving your rights away? If you want more government control over your life, if you want to live as a subject instead of a citizen, if you want your children and grand children to be enslaved by all the government overreach that creeps in and slowly takes your rights every year, keep voting for the liberal Democrats and Republicans and you will achieve your goal.
If you want your freedoms, you want the government to stay out of your business; you want to be a citizen instead of a subject, then do not vote liberals like Jeanne Shaheen who voted against the Constitution many times. She voted against the 1st Amendment violating religious rights, gun owner’s rights (2, 3, 4), 4th Amendment violations EPA non-warrant search, and more then I can list here; so she is not for your Constitutional Rights. But let’s ask, what did she vote against; nay to the balance budget amendment, nay to the prevent earmarks, nay to not allowing government internet censoring, nay to the Keystone Pipe Line, nay to the not allowing the president to raise the debt limit without congress, and nay to smoker’s rights, and there are many more. I am a health type person and would like to know what is in the food I buy at the store but she voted against the requirement of food being labeled when GMO; Monsanto’s is the biggest GMO special interest groups who gives massive amounts of money to liberals. I don’t have the room to put them all but you can look it up at votingsmart.org or the congress GOV site. Does she support the ability for the poor to get a better education, the answer is No; if she did she would help sponsor S. 1968, “Scholarships for Kids Act” but she nor any liberals will because the big business unions are more important and worthy then our children.
It is really simple to me, I am not a Democrat or Republican but I am an American and I am tired of our politicians putting socialistic agendas before our country and its citizens. The reason alternative fuels doesn’t work is because there are so much regulatory crap holding back what we could do that we can’t reach our potential; regulations which are supported by your liberal Senator Jeanne Shaheen. You only need to ask yourself, what is best for America and the American people as a whole to come up with the answers. The liberal politicians from both sides of the isle only want more power and money; this is the reason they have now targeted the Fishing Industry because those environmentalist will give them more money.
I believe in 100% taking care of the environment but not killing our country in the process and sending all our jobs overseas to let others pollute there area instead. We import more from China than any other place yet they pollute almost 2 times more, have more slave labor, and refuse to comply with any emission standards. If our politicians are seriously want to cut worldwide pollution, then they need to have the balls to ban the products coming from the countries that produce the most pollution like China and India until they use the same standard as we do. This will not happen because China is the number one political contributor to both parties in US elections. Our fake environmentally champion (our politicians) are hypocrites, they will keep hammering Americans like the Coal and Fish Industry but they won’t touch their number one contributor, China.
What is the difference between a Democracy and Dictatorship and what do we have in America? Before I say anything else, we will look at the dictionary definition of Democracy, Dictatorship, and Dictator so there is no mistaking the truth from disinformation.
There is no constitutional provision nor statute that explicitly permits executive orders, they were first used when the congress was in recess and we had a national emergency, it would take weeks for congress to come back to address so the president would pass an edict until congress came back to deal with the problem, then the edict would be rescinded. The term "executive power" Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 of the Constitution, the executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America but by Clause 1, the Vesting Clause, the power to execute the instructions of Congress, which has the exclusive power to make laws; "To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States. An executive order of the President must find support in the Constitution, either in a clause granting the President specific power, or by a delegation of power by Congress to the President.
There has been abuse of executive orders in the past with the most notable by another liberal who wanted to be a dictator, Franklin D. Roosevelt. He knew the rule was only two terms as president but he was elected to three terms, he also has the distinction of writing on average 10 times more executive orders than the average of all other presidents with 3,522 executive orders. He also has the distinction of having the highest percentage of them overturned by the US Supreme Court, as in National Industrial Recovery Act (Executive Order 6632). And like his idol, another liberal democrat, Harry S. Truman passed an executive order (Executive Order 10340) where President Truman tried to place all Steel Industry under Federal Control. Many critics of executive orders claim abuse of executive order power which is true especially in the current administration. Laws, according to the US Constitution cannot be made or changed by the executive branch and an executive order but most go back to congress, yet we all have watched as no less than 35 changes have been made to Obamacare; Senator Harry Reid wouldn’t abide by the law, the US Constitution, and stopped every challenge to these unconstitutional actions.
Now we have a new US Congress where the Liberals do not have control and what is the first thing out of President Obama’s mouth, “I’ll do what I want through Executive Order!” The question I have is will our new Republican US Congress stand up to him? He plans on killing the Coal industry, killing the Oil Industry, cutting Green House gasses which will kill almost every other industry, and giving 30 million Illegal Aliens Green Cards. He has let over 30, 000 criminal Illegal Aliens, some which are murders out of jail and back into the US population through Executive Order. President Obama’s Executive Order 13497 rescinded all oversight of regulatory planning in review, this is why we are in so much financial trouble now; it wasn’t President Bush but President Obama who screwed up our economy. It also allowed contracts to be issued without competitive bidding; how did so many of his supporters get lucrative government contracts in areas with no experience like the Obamacare contracts? He also passed Executive Order 13489 which prevents any FOIA request for presidential documentation. You even have Executive Order 13520, section H.R. 3962 which I can’t tell you what it says because it is in Spanish.
It is no secret that I don’t like Mitch McConnell or John Boehner and I think the Republicans are on their way to blowing the chance which the American people have given them. Mitch McConnell promised to repeal Obamacare while he was running in a tough reelection race and once he has won, says he isn’t going to do it; this is the leadership you want Republicans? Then you have John Boehner who rolled over and barked every time Harry Reid and President Obama growled at him; you think this spineless person is a leader Republican Party? I’m a Libertarian but I can tell all ready that unless the Republican Establishment puts someone in there who is more honest (no politician is 100%) and has a set of balls, in two years it will be the same election results but in reverse with the winners being the Democrats. If you Republicans keep putting establishment people in these positions of power, these people who DO NOT reflect what your base’s beliefs, selecting these establishment people as your pick to run for president, if you keep doing this the American people will never trust you again. You are the better of the two parties but not by much, I keep seeing you turning like the liberals and that is not what this country needs. We have a dictator type president and you need to put him in check and become the leaders we need Republicans. I believe the Democrats have gone too far down the liberal trail to recover and if you Republicans don’t become the leaders we need, I pray a new political party will arise. I pray they will take over all seats, win all the elections, and lead this country back to glory because neither you Republicans nor the Democrats are doing what is best for the country, but only for yourself or your party.
When the first Cold War ended in 1985, the two leaders were President Ronald Reagan of the United States and Mikhail Gorbachev of the Soviet Union and no one knew more about what a Cold War was, then these two. President Reagan has since passed away leaving former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev as one of the most knowledgeable people on the historic causes of the cold war and the effects it had on the world. Mr. Gorbachev has come out on the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall that the world is on the brink of a Second Cold War. Although he seems to have an ulterior motive for his comments, I do believe he is correct.
When you have one Superpower in the world which is strong and capable, you will have relative peace throughout the world, but if that superpower becomes weak or perceived to be weak, the wolves will come out to try a take that superpower down just like a wounded animal. Cold War was from 1947to1985 with the average percentage of the US budget (from 1962-1985) being spent on Defense being 33%; today we are spending 14.9% while our advisories once again build up their militaries. Not counting the 1947 to 1963 years which Defense spending was in the 50% arena, after the cold war ended we have cut our military by over 55% and we are wondering why we are about to have a new Cold War.
In our history, the military has contributed and given back more to support and strengthen America than any other area in our society including the academia world. We have a large problem with American not having any skilled labor and one reason is because when the draft was installed in America, the military trained people in a skill and if they used it and stayed in the military or left and used it in the civilian world, they still had a skill. When the draft ended in 1973, the military had been training virtually every male in the American society with a skill they could use in the civilian market. Due to public resentment to the Vietnam War the Democratic led congress passed a law ending the draft; but as does most legislation passed using feelings instead of logic, they had not thought out how to replace the skill creating force the military had been creating for nearly fifty years. We were one of only two World Powers fighting to be the only Super Power which under President Reagan we received and the Soviet Union admitted defeat.
As long as we had a strong military we could help and defend weaker countries, but the Democratic leaders in both houses of congress, along with the Democratic and Republican liberals didn’t like a strong military or country and started gutted the military. President Carter was the first to start gutting the military; he didn’t stand with our allies and allowed Iran to fall into the hands of Muslim extremist and capture 66 US personnel and held them for 444 days until President Reagan took office and immediately released them. President Reagan built the military back and it shined through letting all know we were the best during Desert Storm. Then when President Clinton took office, he started where President Carter left off. Due to his gutting the military, when we went to war in the second Gulf War our soldiers did not have the best equipment and were getting killed left and right. President Bush put money back into the military and greatly limited the deaths through technology and improvements which once again showed the world we were the best, but in his last two years in office, he allowed another Democratic congress to dictate the cutting of the military; apparently neither the Democrats nor Republicans had learned anything from our history.
Once the 2008 elections were held, both houses of congress and presidency were held completely by the liberal Democrats, more money was taken from the military even though they were in two wars going on. The replacement for the old, out dated F-15, the F22 was cut and diverted for even more entitlements; all the technology that was being developed to protect and save our troops was halted. The wolfs in the world, Vladimir Putin from Russia, Xi Jinping from China, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from Iran, and all the Muslim terrorist leaders from everywhere
Who were wondering if the new US President of the United States was going to be as weak as it seemed; now they knew it was to be, it only took a short time to validate what they had thought. It wasn’t long before President Obama and the liberal Senate was making deals with our adversaries, getting nothing in return for America and our adversaries took everything they could. Now we have this liberal president lowering our military to pre WWII levels, changing the standard to be able to fight a two front war to only being able to fight one war.
You need to ask yourself, is Mikhail Gorbachev correct and another Cold War is right around the corner; I believe so. All the progress made for a peaceful world since WWII has been wiped out, all the lives sacrificed now meaningless, and all the wolves held at bay set free. President Obama refused to listen to his military leaders and pulled out of Iraq promising to help if problems arises but never did, he only sends a few bombs to say “see, I’m helping” ; this has allowed a Muslim extremist caliphate state to be created, he has allowed the Russians to invade a sovereign country without raising one finger, and he has allowed Iran to further develop nuclear bomb technologies which they will use once they get it. Our nation will be eaten and destroyed unless something isn’t changed, we cannot keep electing people into office that will not support and protect America and in many cases are anti-American. When you have people in our congress who are more for the illegals aliens in this country then the Americans, you have a problem. We are headed for a new Cold War and the other question you must ask is, will we win it?
What do you think?
The Republicans just won by a landslide in the elections due to the citizens being tired of the liberal way and wanting something better for their children and grandchildren then the burden that liberals, both Democratic and Republican have put on them. The people are sick of this elitist right that both the Democratic and Republican establishment keep shoving down their throats and want the conservative values that made us so prosperous in the path so I ask, are the Republicans really going to be that stupid?
Are they going to put two moderate liberals in the leadership of Congress; keeping Speaker of the House John Boehner who has shown no leadership to stop the liberal agenda and then turn around and make the new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who has taken just as much pork spending as any liberal and bowed to every whim of President Obama? Both of these men are the founded establishment which the American People hate, maybe the new Senate Majority Leader and Speaker of the House should be someone who would stand up for the USA Constitution and the American people. The people would prefer someone like Trey Gowdy or Marsha Blackburn instead of Mitch McConnell for Senate Majority Leader; they would prefer someone like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul as Speaker of the House, not John Boehner another moderate establishment person who the people don't want. What happened in 2006 when the Republicans had establishment people running the Congress, they were all voted out two years later along with the President becoming the most liberal Democrat to ever hold the office; the Republicans apparently haven't learned from history. The people are giving you a second chance and just like when you nominated two liberal establishment people to run for president, they were soundly defeated but do you know why? Between 20%-25% of registered Republicans who voted, didn't cast a vote for the position of president because the Republican establishment by nominating two liberals, spit in their base's face.
Suggestion Republican party, put someone in these positions who reflect the majority of your base's beliefs, not the minority. Put someone in these positions who has the fortitude to stand up for your base instead of submit to the liberal base. If you don't, then it will be another long time before your base will give you another chance because they will believe you have spit in their face again. I predict that neither John Boehner or Mitch McConnell will stand up for the Republican base but submit to the liberal Democratic base which is not what the people want; If I am wrong, I'll be the first one to say it, but it is as close to a sure thing as you can get. I wish we could turn Congress to be Libertarian like I am, we would secure the border so our citizens would be safe, remove the restricting regulations which is killing our businesses, and make the government as small as we can so it would stay out of your personal business. This is what the American people want but I don't think you, the Republican party have heard them, you are just a shade better then the Democratic party, you have sabotaged republicans running because they weren't your "establishment picks" just like the Democrats do; what is the difference other then some peripheral items? I hope I am wrong but the American people will know if I am within the first couple of months after you are sworn in. Will you stop the President from destroying our Nation using his unconstitutional executive orders, or will you give in and pout like you have for the past six years.
We have lost much of our manufacturing base in the US which is where most of our jobs have gone and there are several reasons this has happened. Some of the reasons we have no control over but a lot of the reasons we do and the causes are touchy when it comes to the political environment; in short, many of our politicians care more about money, power, and control then they do about the well being of the American citizens. Let’s look at the causes and see if the bigger picture of why we are having these problems becomes clearer.
In America, the biggest hindrance is our politicians from both parties; they care more about being reelected, taking power from the states, and freedoms from “We the People.” Our lawmakers pass 9 thousand bills into law every year without resending any. When Congress passes job killing laws like Obamacare which will change the work week from 40 hours to 30 hours, it is not good for the economy and is even worse for the hard working person. Now the newly starting out person will have to find two places to work instead of the normal one, forty hour job; thanks politicians. The US Congress are the only ones by the US Constitution allowed to make laws but now let the EPA, IRS, BLM, and many others make laws, restrict us, and fine us for not complying. By doing this they can point the finger at someone else, it leaves no recourse to fight whatever these rogue agencies say you’re guilty. You have the IRS taking people’s and businesses’ money because the “think” they are doing something illegal; what ever happen to innocent until proven guilty? They have effectively put numerous people and businesses out of business without a legal leg to stand on. Over 90% of these people and businesses are found innocent but the IRS will still keep some of their money; I thought that was called robbery? The EPA shoves new requirements down company’s throats and when subpoenaed for the scientific data that supports the reasoning for these new regulations, they can’t find the data and say trust us. These two government entities are closing businesses left and right with no intervention from congress. The IRS taxing, the EPA regulations, and all the red tape from the liberals in Congress and in these two agencies has ran more companies and jobs out of the US then everything else combined. These same hypocritical politicians who say they are trying to help the environment drive SUVs, live in 20, 000 square foot houses, have private planes, and are crafting taxes to tax the millage you drive because gas taxes revenue s are dropping due to more efficient cars. These are the same politicians, who raised the debt 9 trillion dollars in 6 years, I’m sure our grand kids will be thanking us.
There are several countries out there that we will never be able to have the same low manufacturing cost because they basically have slave labor. When you look at an American flag, if you buy a 5 X 8 made in China it is $19 but the same one made in the US is $51, this is almost 63% higher. As I said earlier, a lot has to do with China and other countries having slave labor, but another part is items made in union controlled areas cost far more then in right to work states. Most small unions are trying to help the workers but the small unions are the only ones, the larger unions only care about money, power, and politics. They do not do what is best for the country and in many cases like Obamacare, cut their members throats by backing bad politicians and political party to get kick backs. I know a man who owned two companies which he had built from the ground up. He treated his employees very well and paid his employees substantially more than the average and all was great until a union came to town. The union promised they could get the employees even more money and benefits, the employer told the workers that the union would make the company uncompetitive and if the union was voted in, he would have to close the plant. This man who had treated his employees like gold was introduced to the greed of people and the unions. The union was voted in and by law the only choice he had was to accept the union, move his company to another state or country, or close his doors; he closed his doors. These employees who were treated like gold was introduced to what personal and unions greed gets you, unemployed. The unions which were needed at one time are now nothing more than greedy political operatives who are costing the US many jobs because the companies are sending all the orders overseas to be filled.
Another major problem is all the illegal alien labor we allow to cross the border every day; it takes all jobs away from Americans, especially the young Americans who are looking for jobs. Instead of having more job opportunities for the American people, the opportunities go to those who are not even US citizens with the black community being hit the hardest; it’s ironic, the black communities vote for the same liberals who take their jobs away; how is that working out for you? Many liberal places give illegals aliens “In State Tuition” rates or Free Tuition, but what about the poor Americans who can’t afford the tuition costs? Shouldn’t we take care of our own American citizens first? American tax money is spent on illegals more than it is spent on the poor of our own country and who do the poor mostly vote for; you guessed it, the liberals who are holding them down with entitlements. We not only have illegal aliens taking jobs and higher education opportunities from our poor which also effects the economy, but with the illegal population being 9.5% of the US population, it makes up 25% of the Federal prison population; that is 263% of what it should be by population. Of all the murders, 15-20% of murders in the US which is 210% of what it should be by population. Of the 33,000+DUI deaths, 6,600+ were caused by illegals aliens, which is 195% of what it should be by population. The liberal politicians and the illegal aliens are making an impact on our country; is it the one you want for your family?
The question you have to ask, especially the minority American citizens who is hit the hardest by the lack of jobs in the job market is, do you want to work and make something of yourself, be able to work your way out into a better level of living or do you want to remain in the chains of the entitlement system built by the liberals which was design to never let you out to flourish and be all you can. The liberal are the ones putting all these road blocks in the way of America and you. If you look at the recovery it no doing well, after President Reagan took over what liberal President Carter left, in three years we had the best economy we have ever had; even if the liberals try and blame President Bush for this, their policies should have worked to restore the economy 3 years ago. It hasn’t because the liberal theology always leads to disaster and it has been displayed again. A famous person once said, “The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect different results”, this is why liberals are insane.
