The American People Are Being Served As Dinner By Both Parties Of The United States Government, Again!

Tell me if you have heard this one before. Two hunters invite a duck over for dinner.  The duck puts on his Sunday’s best for the occasion, for he feels honored that so much fuss is being made for his benefit.  Upon entering the home he notices that the stove has boiling pots of water on it and the oven is on when the two hunters comes to him with napkins around their necks and each with a knife and fork in hand. They ask the duck, guess what’s for dinner?

Today it is the American people who are playing the part of the duck, and the two main political parties are playing the part of the hunters in this so-call “Fiscal Cliff” production that is being preformed in the nation’s federal seat.  Both parties are doing an orchestrated rhino dance with no real intention to do what really needs to be done to strengthen America’s financial position and thus not cause each other any real injuries to their ultimate goal.

First let’s not be so distracted that we lose site of how we got to this “cliff” in the first place.  Two years ago the two parties supposedly at the very last minute saved the nation from imminent financial doom by coming to an agreement to increase the federal government’s borrowing limits; so it could go into more debt, just slower.  The main stipulation for the agreement was that both parties had to find a way to cut spending. But, if the two parties could not reach agreement on cuts then they agreed that cuts would be imposed automatically at end of 2012 on both party’s sacred calves, for the Republicans it was defense, and for the Democrats it was domestic spending.  The division came to $109.3 billion per year.  Basically, the “national defense” and all non-defense program cuts would come to just $54.7 billion per year for only 9 years, to total just a little over $1 trillion in debt reduction. That was the agreed upon deal by the best minds and negotiators from both parties. Right?

Now most interestingly, in order to work out a compromise neither party picked any moderates nor anyone who could pass as a fiscal hawk; someone who had a reputation of wanting to reduce government spending.  And they met primarily in secret, behind close doors.  So, surprise!  No compromise.

So here we again.  We have the same players doing a strangely similar dance only to a different track beat.  The nation faces another imminent financial catastrophe that only Democrat and Republican leaders coming together in Washington can save the nation from.   But yet again there’s no real talk of getting America truly financially solvent.  There is no talk about truly cutting spending or even getting close to a balance budget.  Here are some interesting points to keep in mind:  Just in Mr. Obama’s first term he has piled over $5 Trillion to the government’s debt, more than all of the previous Presidents COMBINED!  Yet, he has only talked about reducing the debt by $4 trillion of 10 years; Mr. O seems to be fixated on taxing the “rich”.  But, according to a recent Forbes article, the federal gov’t would have to collect at least $8 trillion in taxes per year just to not go further in the hole – which is more than the average yearly accrued liabilities of just the two largest entitlement programs-Social Security and Medicare.  But if you take the total adjusted gross income of every taxpayer earning even more than $66,000 a year it would only come to just $5.1 trillion. And the income from those “evil” corporations is only $1.6 trillion.  If the government was to take all of this, it still wouldn’t be enough to even pay the annual increases. And keep in mind that the gov’t can only take this money once.  Once it’s gone, it’s gone. And as for the Republicans, the party who’s supposed to champion smaller government and limited spending, their leaders seem to be unable, or unwilling, to vociferously make the case that the government is financially insolvent and the monstrous debt that it is piling up will be bared by future generations by dramatically lower standard of living and diminished world economic standing.

What hasn’t been explained to the American people is what exactly the so-called Fiscal Cliff is.  It is made up of three main components, the agreed upon resolution in the Budget Control Act of 2011 of across-the-board spending cuts –sequestration; the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, which would bring taxes back to pre-tax cut rates, thus causing the highest tax increase in U.S history; and also the New taxes to be imposed by the Affordable Care Act, i.e., Obamacare, that brings $500 billion to $1 trillion-plus in tax hikes over the next 10 years starting in January.  Interestingly, very little, if anything is being mentioned of the taxes of Obamacare that are to negatively affect every U.S taxpayer and American, thus further stymie an already depressed economy. Every thing is being focused by the Establishment Media on the totally reneging on the 2011 agreement, which was to cut cost and reduce the government’s crushing debt, and the extension of the Bush tax cuts for all but the high producers and tax-brackets – none of which would lower the government’s debt, reduce government spending, or spurs the nation’s economic growth.  In fact these issues aren’t even mention honestly in the debate from either side.  And Mr. O even admitted during an interview with ABC News reporter Charles Gibson that raising taxes on the rich has nothing to do with better economics or the betterment of the nation fiscal position, but “fairness”.  Fact is that the federal government does not have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem.  It is spending more than $1 trillion more than what it brings in annually.

What the government is engaged in is a masterful production of double-speak and verbal word contortion to deliberately disguise, distort, or reverse the meaning of words and its true intent and motives.  Lumping all of the three main issues into one presentation to the people of American in a highly-charged emotional crisis is to further govern by fear and crisis.  Jefferson prophetically said that “Fear can only prevail when victims are ignorant of the facts.” And John Adams said of government, “fear is the foundation of most governments.”  Since September 11, 2001 a very good argument can be made that the government of the United States has governed the American people not with optimistic aspirations to lead towards America’s freedom and prosperity, but it has chosen to lead with perpetual states of crisis and fear to lead the nation towards governmental dependency and economic impoverishment.   We get so caught up in what is being said by political leaders, and not enough on what is not being said.

The Party leaders are fighting not to free the people of America from its treacherous economic mis-management, but seemingly fighting to leave its taxpayers and America unknowingly liable and holding the bag and saddling America’s posterity with unsustainable financial debt and second-class world citizenship.  It is evident by their actions.  They should be fighting for the common ground of what will make the nation prosperous.  They should be discussing ways to make the Bush tax cuts permanent, putting more money in the people’s pockets, while reducing it’s spending till it is more in line to it’s revenues, and reducing any and all economically repugnant portions of any legislation, including Obamacare.  Why aren’t the parties discussing anything along these lines?  Why is Mr. Obama stubbornly pushing an ideology and policy that he himself has stated will not lead the nation to economic prosperity nor lower the debt of the government? And why is the Establishment Media not seeking to educate or truly inform the American people of the intent and motivations of the government and its policies and possible effects they may have on us and the nation?  Let the truth be known, though troubling to believe, they are performing their roles purposely to perfection.  The question we should be asking is why?

There is no truth more self-evident that giving free-minded people truth and knowledge they will not have anything to fear and they will chose what is best.  The crime is that we the people are not giving that opportunity.  But, at the end of the day it is up to each free-minded person to take the responsibility to be educated on the motives and actions of those we place in governance, to hold them accountable for what they do and do not do.  Or alas it will be the carcass of the American people that future historians will discover on the doused embers of this great nation.

Walking back from the edge: The aftermath of the 2012 Presidential Production Is One Of Ideology

Ok I’m back from the bridge.  There were a lot of people seemingly prepared to jump after Mr. Obama’s re-election for four more years sitting in the seat of the Presidency of the United States.  I, after having time to reflect and take several deep breathes the question that I have is, who didn’t see this coming?  As I reported in my article in February of this year, Obamanation Is Setting The Stage For Another Orchestrated Election, we have seen this played out before in Obama’s charmed political life.  He gets to run against no one from his party, so that he is unchallenged, and no real light or scrutiny is cast on him until he gets to the general election to face the opposition Party’s candidate.  And that Party’s candidate is either severely over matched by Obama, due to some anomaly, and or he runs a basically token opposition race.  Figuratively speaking,the supposed opponent goes to fight with an gun that is not loaded against a guy who’s willing to fire everything in his arsenal to win. In this election the Republican candidate’s gun still has the safety switch on.  Mr. O seemingly is operating from a different page of rules of engagement.

Mitt Romney was a flawed candidate when he quit, still without explanation, in the ’08 Presidential Race and he was more of a flawed candidate in this race.  First of all, of the Republican choices in the Primary he had the most loses in seeking political office.  He was only elected for one term as Governor of Massachusetts.  He won the Primary not due to his strong and provocative ideas for the nation’s future, vision for the nation, or dominating debating skills.  He won it because his pockets were deeper than the other guys.  Period!  And very much unlike Obama, rather than run to embrace the base of the Republican party – the conservatives to his right – he ran from it while giving it his middle finger.  The base never trusted nor warmed to Romney.  But most importantly Romney never took the gloves off, just as McCain chose not to do in the ’08 Elections, to hit Obama on his most glaring vulnerability – his character and a sever lack of an ethical compass.  Obama is a walking illustration of how to run the Office without morality, ethics, or the Constitution for that matter, as an obstacle to his objectives.   Romney never presented a clear distinction between him and Obama on the one thing that American people won’t excuse, even from the mightiest of sports icons, immorality and a blatant lack of honesty and character.  He was seen as Obama-lite.  It was more of a case of choosing between the devil known verses the devil unknown.  The citizens of the United States chose the devil known.

But this is symptomatic.  The fundamental issue of what is wrong with the Republican Party today as a whole that is growing like a cancer, at the federal level particularly.  When any individual from within the Republican ranks voices a strong conservative ideology, such as an Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Col. Allen West, or anyone who dares to present the opposition party, the Democrats, as what it truly is, a party with a  liberal-socialist ideology, they get taken to the preverbal woodshed and or be cannibalized upon.  Ever since Reagan, the Republican National Party has sought to have only the most non-Reaganist, non-conservative, that it could get away with representing it.  George H. Bush won only once because on his second run he chose to run to the left.  G.W. ran as a “Compassionate Conservative”, plus the conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan kept him in for a second term.  But since the Bushes, the National Republican Party has wanted to be more like the Democrats-to the left.

Contrast the Republicans to the Democrats who have chosen the most leftist man to be the face of its party, Barack Obama.  And it does so with no public reservations or shame.  The Democrats may have differences within, but they marshal behind what is its main objective, its main ideology, and that is to make Americans dependent on government, to be ever beholding to their Party, and to create a socialist society so it – Democratic Party – will be forever in power.  When was the last time you ever saw the Democrats demonstratively publically attack its own?  But, the Republicans do it seemingly at a drop of the hat, such as when Mr. Romney spoke about “the 47% Percenters” during the election or when Rush Limbaugh spoke of Mr. Obama being Santa Claus, one who seeks to give everyone gifts/benefits from the government.  The remarks weren’t debated or rebutted upon the basis of whether they were right or wrong, but that they were “insensitive”, not politically correct.  And it was not the Democrats coming at the Republican or Conservative with pitchforks and rope who made the comment, but other Republicans; Or so-called Republicans.  The Democratic/Progressives cannot defeat Republican/Americanism -a belief in basic Conservative American principles toe to toe in the arena of ideas.  That’s why they have to lie, deceive, and manipulate.


What brought me off the bridge, and what may bring many of you off the cliff, is to view the battle less of a political battle, Republican verses Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, but a battle of ideology – a battle between the Progressive, socialistic, or what Goldwater called governmental-paternalism, when the government provides the people with the basics and govern their lives.  That ideology verses the Americanistic, or Conservative, ideology of self-reliance, personal responsibility, and the belief in God.  The former denotes a position of weakness, dependency, and an economically impoverish consciousness.  While the latter denotes a position of strength, independency, and an economically resilient consciousness.

As I reported in my September article, This Year’s Election Will Be between Those Who Cherish Personal Freedom and Morality, and Those Who Do Not, “The ultimate choice is that of the U.S citizens and the American people whether we believe that rights and freedoms is the venue of the government or of the people.  Whether we are to be destined to live within the plantation of the collective mind or free to prosper or fail limited only by one’s own dreams and choices as free-minded individuals.  Or whether we reinvigorate our uniquely American belief that our rights come from God and not from man and that it is we the people who give life to the government and not the government that gives life to the people.” It really doesn’t matter what actors are put before us to represent the supposed Parties, it comes down to who speaks to the ideology that rings truest to the voter’s hearts – whether it is freedom or paternalism.  At the end of the day it is up to us to decide.

O’s Rock Star Production Is Fading Under The Serious Lights of This Campaign

The most recent Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows Mitt Romney at 49% of voters nationwide and President Obama is at 47%.  My question is what are these 47% liking in O that he has earned or deserves another 4-year term to sit in the chair of the President of the United States that the rest of us are oblivious to?  Sir Winston Churchill said once that, “The best argument against Democracy is a 5 minute conversation with an average voter.”  He may have well been speaking of today’s political climate.

It is my sincerest belief that the election of Mr. Obama was not an election of a president or a leader by the citizens of United States, but a very attractive and articulate celebrity, a rock star; who also happened to have been also Black.  I can’t recall a time when I have seen the President’s face on so many entertainment magazines, t-shirts, coffee mugs, and entertainment shows, such as the Daily Show and the View. All this while the nation, and the world, is in crisis.

Barack Obama, got elected four years ago to be the president of the United States, after not even completing his first term in the Senate and without many voters knowing hardly anything about him personally, philosophically, or politically. They knew he was a democrat; he looked good on camera, intelligent, and spoke well – especially with a teleprompter.  The voters of the United States wanted to give “him a chance”- the first true African-American, as though he was applying for managerial position at a Denny’s Restaurant.  But since getting into office he seems to be unable or unwilling, to tell the truth or be straight with the American people.  He came into office with a cloudy past that includes serious communist  and  radical liberal affiliations.  He promised that if the “Stimulus Bill” was passed unemployment would not raise pass 8% and would create over 3 million jobs.  Since the bill’s passage unemployment has hit a 25 year record high, negative job creation every year, and if the underemployed and those wanting full time work but having to settle for p/t work were counted, the rate today would be an astonishing 14.5%.  He rammed through Obamacare without any bi-partisan input promising that it would improve and lower the cost of healthcare without raising taxes on anyone earning below $250k yearly income.  But according to the Americans for Tax Reform, Obamacare will clobber every U.S taxpayer and business owner with taxes and regulations that this nation has never imagined. According to the Heritage Foundation Obamacare will end up costing millions of jobs and cripple the nation’s employment environment. Also, according to U.S Daily Review the law will not improve healthcare at all, but drastically reduce quality and access.

Mr. Obama is up to his crown in concealing and lying blatantly to the American people about Fast and Furious, that involved covertly flooding gangs in Mexico with American guns that have killed untold numbers of Mexicans and at least one U.S Border Agent.  He has also played a significant role in the sacking of the strongest and largest American friendly Arab state, Egypt, and an Arab nation that was no direct threat to America, Libya.  Both interestingly kept a lid on the extremely radical Islamic group the Muslim Brotherhood.  But more recently with another “spontaneous uprising” in two Muslim Brotherhood-led countries of Libya and Egypt due to obscure YouTube Video defaming the Prophet Muhammad that caused the slaying of the U.S Ambassador to Libya and three Marines on September 11th.  But rather than admit that the attack in Libya and on the Ambassador was a planned military attack by Al-queda he has set to conceal the truth of what actually happened, how it happened, why it happened, and blame America for our freedom of speech that allowed this obscure video to be made.

So who are these 47% of the U.S populace who still favor a man with such a track record who now wants to have another 1,460 days to “fundamentally change” America even more?  Governor Romney may have had it right when he stated in September that, “there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. That, that’s an entitlement.” And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.” Obama seemingly panders to the lowest intellectually politically initiated in the nation and dreams of a nation of dependency, both domestically and internationally.  And it is only with the blessings of the Establishment Media, with his expansive rock star production, coupled with this nation’s extreme culture of celebrity worship does his blatant verbal manipulation and deception goes mostly unabated.

But in a Democracy it is only as sturdy as the political aptitude of the least of our fellow citizen.  Unfortunately these seem to be Mr. Obama’s targeted group for supporter. Thomas Jefferson may have stated the answer to what ills the nation today when he said, “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” It does appear that many of the rest of the nation are truly beginning to listen with our ears and see with our eyes.  We are beginning to hear that he says nothing, that only his lips are moving as someone else tugs at the strings, and that he is standing naked before us. We are becoming initiated to become more responsible for ourselves and wanting a better nation for our posterity.  May the hands of Providence gently lie upon us all.

The voters who blindly married Obama in 2009 should be beginning to believe the rumors.

In my many discussions with people who supports Mr. Obama fervently it is much like trying to convince a guy that his wife is cheating on him.  No matter if his best friends were to show him pictures of her naked with her head planted between a guy’s legs, with her one of a kind tattoo visible clear as day, he sternly denies that it is her.  But there are just somethings that cannot be argued away with one’s more than bizarre behavior and actions no matter how much he would like to believe in his heart the contrary.  With so many people telling you similar stories of her deceit, infidelity and treachery they can’t all be lies.  Such is the case with Mr. Obama.

Many U.S voters casted ballots for Obama on an extraordinary binge of emotional ecstasy of the promise that he would be “the one” who would be the most honest, the one who would take care of home, have all those mean neighbors love us, bring prosperity to the home, and most of all be faithful.  Life with him would be THE BEST EVER!  He was the DA ONE!  Right?.

But the actions that he has demonstrated since taken his vows, even with the retake, leaves his words and promises hollow and in serious doubt.  He would want us to believe him when he presents himself to be of America and loves it beyond all overs, but his mother raised him mostly in foreign Muslim lands, in private schools,  and emersed him in socialist/communist values and cultures. He didn’t actually step foot on the continental United States until he entered college. And according to his own book, “The Dreams from My Father”, Obama’s childhood mentor, referred to as “Frank”, was Frank Marshall Davis, a big time communist.  Hum!

Ever since gaining the seat as president of the U.S he has adamantly professed to want a strong economy for the U.S, yet he first saddles the American people with more debt than that of the total all of the former Presidents with the “Stimulus” Bill and the greatest transfer of the private economy to the government with Obamacare since the Social Security System was enacted. He has virtually shut of domestic oil drilling on government lands and waters. With his onerous regulations that has drained the nation’s economy, according to 10/2011 article, an estimated $100 million to $4.1 billion.  And he has exacerbated the issue of illegal immigration of Mexicans, and other low-skilled foreigners, by 20 times to more expeditiously worsen the employment and economic plight of the under-educated and low and middle class youths and adults who are legal citizens. And oh, he has before publicly stated that his favors tried n true wealth creating plan of  wealth redistribution, more than once.  Remember the “Joe the plumber” incident when he was candidate Obama? Humm!

And  now after taking the lead in sacking two prominent neutral and extremely American-friendly Arab countries, Libya and Egypt, and looking to sacking another big sovereign state, Syria, to make way for the extremely Islamic radical and anti-American  Muslim Brother, while giving the bionic stiff arm to the one true democratic nation in the region, Israel, he wants us to believe that the current eruption in the Middle-East is again both spontaneous, emotionally initiated by some benign event, and that the U.S was taken completely by surprise and the events were unanticipated?  Really?!  Are we as a nation still to believe that Mr. Obama really took his oath, seriously?  Are we as a nation to believe through Mr. Obama’s actions and with all of the rumors swirling about him of his utter contempt and disdain for America, it’s history, it’s values and traditions, and it’s dominant place in the world, so much that an actual top-rated box office movie documentary has been made of him, 2016 The Movie, are all lies?  Really?  Is there an foreign adversary leader that he has yet to bow to, figuratively or actually?

At some point the husband looking at the picture of his wife/spouse with her face planted in the crouch of another guy can no longer be simply excused with her denial that it wasn’t her or that she accidentally tripped and fell into that position.  All of the rumors revealed by friends and strangers of her deceitfulness and infidelity are all not liars and haters.  The question that you should be asking is what else has she been lying to you or deceiving you about.  And can you soon divorce yourself from her to start anew applying higher standards?  Or become resign to the fact the you may one day see that one of a kind tattoo on a amateur porno website and your priceless family jewels on the shelves in the home of a hated neighbor.  This is what we as a nation faces should we chose to continue with someone like Mr. Obama as president.

This year’s election will be between those who cherish personal freedom and morality, and those who do not.

If the Democratic National Convention tells even the most passive political observer is that there’s very stark visual and psychological contrast between the visions that the Democratic Party and the Republican Party have for the nation.  I would argue like in no other time since the 1868 conventions have the views between the two main political parties been presented so distinctly.  At its 1868 national convention, the Democrats were fervent supporters of the suppression of rights and freedoms of the Black American so much that it had the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan as its leader and the Republicans were as fervent in supporting the rights and freedoms of the American Blacks.

This year the Democrats kicked off their convention by openingly declaring that it is the people who belong to the government.  Its platform was initially absent any reference to God.  And they featured an ex-president who was impeached for lying to the Congress and the American people and once said that, “The purpose of government is to rein in the rights of the people.” and  called the Constitution and the Bill of Rights “radical” and called for the limiting of personal freedoms in saying, “When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans, it was assumed that the Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly…. [However, now] there’s a lot of irresponsibility. And so a lot of people say there’s too much freedom. When personal freedom’s being abused, you have to move to limit it.” They featured San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro as keynote speaker whose mother is closely tied to La Raza Unida, a radical Mexican civil rights group who supports unabated ill-legal Mexican immigration, reportedly said that the truth behind the Battle of the Alamo was taken by “a bunch of drunks and crooks and slaveholding imperialists who conquered land that didn’t belong to them.” They topped the convention cake off  by featuring Barack Obama who voiced his great disdain for governmental limitations once said, that the Court [Warren court] failed to “break free from the essential constraints” in the U.S. Constitution and launch a major redistribution of wealth.” And has done everything in his ability to not be constrained in such a manner.

The constant theme of the Democrats was that big government is the answer to all things and the freedoms and rights of the individual and his property is to be subordinate to the wants and the benefit of the society as a whole; that those who chooses to be responsible for themselves and actions are to be required to be responsible for those who chose not to be such.  The whole DNC certainly had a collectivist undercurrent to it.  Even the Obama slogan “Forward” has a significant socialist connection – it was a slogan first used by none other than Karl Marx himself.  Coincidence?  Right!

I am not by any means saying that the Republican Convention was perfect.  But, I am saying the vision from the Republican view was one of youth and vigor, high standards, prosperity, national unity, independence, freedom by taking responsible for one’s actions – whether it is a nation or as a people, and above all a genuine love of God and THIS country.  The ultimate choice is that of the U.S citizens and the American people whether we believe that rights and freedoms is the venue of the government or of the people.  Whether we are to be destined to live within the plantation of the collective mind or free to prosper or fail limited only by one’s own dreams and choices as free-minded individuals.  Or whether we reinvigorate our uniquely American belief that our rights come from God and not from man and that it is we the people who give life to the government and not the government that gives life to the people.
