CoMITTment


President Obama has been far from bashful when it comes to the practice of unorthodox (and un-Ameirican) methods under the guise of Executive Branch authority.  His entire presidency, thus far, has comprised of unprecedented actions which have never before been seen under an American sky since the inception of our great nation.  Whether it involves buying ownership equity positions in private institutions or bad-mouthing our country on foreign soil, he really wasn’t kidding when he said that he would work hard to change the fabric of our country.

Well, shame on you (if you were one of the water-heads who voted for him) for never insisting an explanation regarding exactly what kind of “change” he meant while on the campaign trail!  Shame on you, America!  Because now you’re (we’re) all getting exactly what you (we) deserve when you (we) don’t take voting seriously!

President Obama has quietly amassed a small army of radical soldiers to serve in an unprecedented capacity labeled as “Czars”.  These people are free from the horrible process of congressional approval, free from being questioned regarding thier past/current ideas on very important subjects, and free from answering to congress (or the people) as they answer only to the president!  Is this just a way for Obama to give his radical pals a high-paying government job with ridiculous benefits or is this bigger than that?  Is this a way for us to peak inside the mind of the mysterious Barack Obama and get a glimpse of what his true thoughts and opinions are regarding so many vital and important issues that plague our country?  Remember, we still don’t really know too much about our sitting president, which is not only frightening, but downright irresponsible (of us)!  Again…I say SHAME ON YOU, AMERICA, for never insisting upon an explanation when we had the chance!  Now we’re going to get radical wee-minded ideas and programs shoved down our throats for the next three and a half years. 

You might be thinking: ahhh, shucks…it’s only four years; we’ll be able to get this joker out of office in 2012 and replace him with a Reaganesque type of person to not only fix all of the many disasters Obama put us into, but also set us up for the next twenty years!

True, in order to get Ronald Reagan we had to suffer through Jimmy Carter.  Holding our breath until 2012 and surviving an Obama presidency may be what we unfortunately needed in order to see the brilliance of a person like Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich, but you’re fooling yourself if you think that Obama’s many social expiriments won’t have a long-lasting negative impact on our nation for years, if not decades, to come!  No mistake comes without consequences.  The consquences of having been fooled by Obama’s impressvive campaign marketing program (in order for him to get elected) WILL have lasting effects and could even include widespread economic disaster that takes years to recover from.  Inflation, for example, is not somethig that simply goes away after it’s reared its ugly head!  If you want proof about what I’m saying here then look no further than the lasting effects of FDR’s presidency…or should I say “reign”!  Nearly seventy years AFTER the FDR administration and we’re still being bitch-slapped with the ill-minded social expiriments of his day.  Social Security, which was supposed to be a volunteer social program only for those who wanted to be a part of it has now grown into the biggest, most corrupt Ponzi Scheme in the history of the world!  For anyone who really knows what a Ponzi Scheme is, you’ll understand what I’m saying.  All Americans are now forced to participate, but some Americans are treated worse than others…just ask small businesses who have to pay TWICE as much SS tax compared to an individual worker!  What started out as a voluntary 1% tax to fund the Social Security Fund has grown into a forced tax of 6.5% for individual workers or 13% for small business owners!  Everything…and I do mean EVERYTHING…that the federal government has laid their ugly hands on has become corrupt and laden with beaurocracy to the point of ridiculous amounts of inefficiencies.  I don’t have any verified data on this next statement I’m about to make, but I would bet that at least 90% of all government-run programs are either in the red (bankrupt/insolvent), horribly inefficient, demographically unfair (racist), and/or ridiculously oppressive (just ask a small business owner)!  Why in the hell would we even consider the notion of having government-run health care when their track record is God awful?  America better wake up or we’ll find ourselves trapped in the clutches of a “Nanny State”…from cradle to grave.

All of this woeful action is only heightened by our current president’s initiative to create an army of unaccountable and radical soldiers.  Past administrations have always had a “Drug Czar”, whose job it was to lead the efforts in America’s drug war.  The job, in and of itself, was really nothing more than a glorified press secretary because he/she really didn’t have too much power and still had to answer to the president, who had to answer to congress and the American people.  Time, however, has made it easier for the Drug Czar to create policy suggestion, spend ample amounts of money, and amass small bits of power from one year to the next.  The idea of having a Drug Czar kind of made sense to most Americans and no one really rejected the notion of having someone whose job it was to combat illegal drug activities on a daily basis.

President Obama, however, has taken this idea TO THE EXTREME with his unbelievable (yet, highly predictable) conglomeration of personal henchmen, whom he likes to call “Czars”.  To all of our surprise, he hasn’t just created four or five extra “Czar positions”, but rather FORTY!  Keep in mind that none of these people have to be vetted by congress or approved!  They’re just appointed, given a salary, and told what to do by the president.  They only answer to the president, too.  Scary?  Hell yes!  Orwellian?  Absolutely!

Just to make a point, one of Obama’s recently created Czars includes a fanatical radical who goes by the name of: Mark Lloyd.  His title?  Chief Diversity Officer.  His job?  To get private broadcasting stations (radio) to pay a 100% tax on their individual operating budget in order to fund public broadcasting stations.  What if the private broadcaster happens to run programs of a conservative political viewpoint?  Well, if they don’t antie up with the tax then they would recieve a mind-blowing $250 million fine!  FORGET THE “FAIRNESS DOCTRINE” BECAUSE THAT IDEA IS SO 2008!  The Obama administration is trying to enact a crippling blow to conservative radio through a back door venture of dyabolical proportions and his tool will be through the service of this newly appointed “Chief Diversity Officer“, Mark Lloyd, who will be given access to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and have influence in any new and existing programs.  Wow.

People…this is not going to be the last time Obama tries to bull his radical ideas through our country.  It certainly isn’t the first time, either.  As mentioned earlier, Obama has amassed 40+ “Czars” to silently articulate radical and Orwellian programs into law.  Also, instead of appointing level-headed individuals who share the same opinions as average Americans, Obama is appointing absolute fanatics and some of them have a track record that would make most felons blush!  Suddenly, Americans have found themselves in a position where they simply don’t have any choice in the matter…for at least the next three and a half years.  Congress has shown that they have no intention on listening to the American people even when polls show that the majority of Americans no longer support “Obamacare”, which this writer believes would be tantamount to accepting a socialist (or even fascist) mission statement for our country.  Could there be any more proof that Obama is looking to completely transform America into an extension of the European Union…and beyond?  How much more proof does the American people need before they realize that they elected an egotistical power-hungry ursuper who would like nothing more than to become “Dictator-in-Chief” rather than Commander-in-Chief?!

I am prayerfully opining to the heavens above that the American people as a whole will be wise enough to swallow their pride when the mid-term elections of 2010 come knocking.  I’m even more prayerfully desperate that the American people as a whole will wise up when it comes time to kick Obama out of the White House in 2012.  Pride can be a deadly and dibillitating ailment, thus making it very difficult to get rid of.  I’m hopeful, however, that Americans throughout the country will recognize that the “change” Obama was preaching during the campaign of 2007-2008 is 100% opposite of what America is made of.  I humbly submit that we needed (and desperately still need) a change in Washington because it was clear that things were getting out of control (evidenced by a congressional approval rate of single-digits…9%, which is so much more than merely embarrassing) with no signs of getting better.  With promises of transparency, openess, no more business as usual, ethical leadership, and “real change”, the only thing we’re getting from an Obama administration is “real change”.  The thing that stings is that the kind of change we’re getting from Obama is the kind of change that would even make most Europeans, Chineese, Islamists, and North Koreans uncomfortable! 

We are on a track for destruction, folks.  The America that you and I grew up with is getting closer and closer to becoming completely extinct.  Our children will not be able to grow up with the types of freedoms and childish carelessness that we had, either.  Their lives, unlike ours, will be statistically measured in order to gauge a numerical value in order to fit them in to a priority list of health care importance.  I would hate to think about the odds my grandchildren will have of being medically supported should they ever contract a serious illness.  It sends shivers down my spine to think about.

I know I put myself at risk of being reported to the White House by writing stuff like this, too.  When Obama’s people (yeah, that’s right…Czars) mentioned the other day that they are encouraging Americans to “tattle” on their neighbors whenever the voice opposition to any of King Obama’s Orwellian ideas it only made me feel more emboldened to stand up, talk louder, and fight back to the bitter end.  There’s no chance that our current administration of thugs will be able to silence The Proletariat…even in the face of death…should it ever come to that.  I’d rather my children grow up fatherless and be proud of me than grow up with a father who shrunk as a man in the face of adversity when it came to fighting for America.

I would rather die on the hill of integrity than live in the vally of compromise.

Stand up, America!  Stand up before it’s too late and America is changed forever!  It is NEVER un-American to show dissent, protest elected officials, or vocally oppose government!  Up until 2008, democrats believed the exact same thing, too!  It wasn’t until Obama took control that democrats started supporting the idea that vocal dissention and protesting was “astroturf”, fake, un-American, and unnecessary.  They didn’t seem to notice that while Cindy Sheehan and her few dozen of supporters decided to encroach upon president Bush’s private life (by hunting him down during a short vacation at his ranch in Texas) there were no calls from republicans to arrest her, silence her, or to shut her up.  They let her speak and they allowed her to protest.  Hell, they just flat out gave unadulterated permission for her to embarrass herself as many times as she wanted.  No one ever demeened her actions as unAmerican because, simply put, they weren’t.  Protesting (peacefully) is pure American; something that the Left has no idea about (ref.: Dem. National Convention; Republican Convention during Bush’s years; economic summits; etc…).  I pray that Americans will NEVER be dissuaded by the attempts of leftist politicians, television reporters, or Hollywood bastards to paint a picture that protesting Obama is futile.  STAND UP, AMERICA!

PS…you need proof that the Administration is trying to pull the wool over your eyes and trick you into complacency?  Just take a look at how may “celebrities” are starting to come out of the woodworks in support of “Obamacare”!  Brad Pitt just took an opportunity to rail on dissenting Americans by appearing on Bill Maher’s show.  Ashton Kutcher (the MILFer) also took the same opportunity on the same bull-crap show to do the same shameless thing.  Their intention?  To play on the emotions of millions of people who LOVE these two men (actors…let’s face it…they pretend to be other people for a living and their compensation comes directly from OUR POCKETS; who’s kidding who here?)!  America…you are being PUNKED!

Before I get to selection of names that John McCain goes by these days, allow me to make a simple observation.  

       

A few years ago, the left-wing “blogosphere” surged onto the seen fueled by their hatred towards George W. Bush.  Out of the midst of this seething hatred for republicans and George W. Bush a new class of left-wing influences hit the seen.  One of these new entities rose to the top above all the rest much like how scum accumulates at the top of a pond.  The entity I’m referring to is no stranger to conservatives because of their outlandish and seething hatred for all things conservative: Daily Kos.   No other left-wing entity has been more inflammatory, embarrassing, and downright disgusting in nature than the Daily Kos has.  It should be noted that EVEN THE “DAILY KOS” PEOPLE ARE WELL AWARE OF THE CHARACTER OF JOHN McCAIN AND HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED THE FACT THAT HE IS NOTHING MORE THAN THE SUM OF THE NUMEROUS LIES THAT HE TELLS.  If you don’t believe me then feel free (buyer beware) to check it out yourself: http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/1/25/162026/147.  This should be very, very disturbing for republican conservatives when even a left-wing fanatical factory of filth and garbage is able to see exactly who John McCain really is!

_______________________________________________

Now…on to the many names of John McCain:

There are sooooooo many to choose from, but the list will begin with the ones that have been heard most recently amongst discussion with conservative republicans as well as with what has been read in conservative writings.  Here goes…in no particular order:

John McKennedy

John McDemoncrat

John McLiberal

John McFlip-Flop

John McLiar or John McPinocchio or John McMachiavelli

John McCain’t

…or my favorite (in conjunction with any of the others listed above)…

John McDouchebag!

Whichever name you end up voting for, make sure you dial a “1” before the phone number and type in the text of your choice followed by an asterisk.  Obviously, the annoying television show “American Idol” and the nomination process for the American President is starting to have more in common the further we get into the whole mess.  At the helm of this embarrassment is none other than John McCain.  In the past, he has been found driving the “Straight Talk Express” across the country in an effort to win the GOP nomination on the shirt-tails of his POW experience in North Korea.  Somewhere along the line, he jumped ship from the “Straight Talk Express” (or he simply broke down on some highway in New Hampshire or Floriduh) and instead has been directing the movement of the enormous political aircraft carrier properly named, “The U.S.S. Pinocchio”.  McCain has shown every American with a heartbeat exactly what he is all about and exactly what he is truly made of by his most recent actions.  By insinuating lies supported by more lies about his arch rival, Governor Mitt Romney, he has shown his true colors as a modern-day Machiavellian.  Up until recently, Americans thought that it was only the Clintons who embraced this type of spineless, unethical, and immoral type of politicking.  Boy, were we wrong!  It would appear, my friends, that the self-proclaimed “foot soldier in the Reagan revolution” is laughing at us as he gathers up electorates on his way to the White House. 

       

People in the media would often make fun of Rudy Giuliani for nearly always (and automatically) reverting back to his experience and leadership as NYC Mayor during the September 11th disaster.  They would say that he had nothing else to run on other than this experience and that he was monopolizing and manipulating the events for his own political gain.  Curiously, however, no one has dared challenge the old wooden man (McCain) of doing the exact same thing as his pal, Rudy.  While you will never hear me claim that McCain (a.k.a., McKennedy, McLiar, McBastard, etc…) shouldn’t be recognized or embraced for his service in the United States military, you will hear me question whether or not his experiences in North Korea warrant a bid for the presidency!  Yes, it is true that McCain was a POW in North Korea for more than five years.  Yes, it is true that his experiences are unquestionably respectable.  No, it does NOT mean we should overlook the amazingly large amount of flaws that he has purposely accumulated while he attempts to hold the republican party hostage on his way to assuming the role of Commander in Chief!  At some point, we absolutely have to draw the line…and for good reason.

I want to make it clear that it is not my claim or argument that John McKennedy would make a terrible president because I don’t know what kind of president he would be.  No one knows!  I have an idea of what kind of president he would be and I feel that the idea I have is well-grounded, objective, and fair.  What I am comfortable claiming is that he would make a TERRIBLE republican president and he should not even be allowed to carry the moniker (R) next to his name.  The reasons for this assertion are clear to anyone who calls themself a republican or conservative.

       

He has single handedly stymied the constitution and the free-speech that it protects by ushering in one of the most embarrassing works of legislation in our nation’s history.  The properly named “McCain/Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Bill” put an end to “soft money” political contributions and imposed limits to how much individuals are allowed (by federal law) to donate.  No longer are Americans able to support whom they want to support by the means they feel comfortable with.  Instead, McCain embraced a bill that inserted some of the largest amounts of federalism any single legislative act has seen!  Most political scholars would argue that the “McCain/Feingold” bill has more to do with protecting incumbents and solidifying their “good old boy” system of doing things in Washington because it is now much more difficult for an incumbent to be defeated than ever before.  It’s easy to see why 100% of liberal democrats supported this bill.  Is this even close to resembling what Ronald Reagan would have done?  I don’t think so.  Who is it that repetitively (and annoyingly) claims to have been a “foot soldier in the Reagan revolution”?  I thought so.

He also embraces the idea of capitalizing on a nearly untapped voting block (illegal immigrants and their direct friends/family members) by introducing another tragedy in the legislative branch of our government.  The duly named, “McCain/Kennedy Immigration Bill” allows for ALL illegal immigrants to simply stay where they are as long as they work with the federal government and set up some sort of a payment plan to pay a $3,000 fine.  I’m sure the interest rates they would extend to these law-breaking immigrants while setting up payment plans would be better than what you or I could get to finance a new home!  While Reagan actually did embrace amnesty at one time of his administration, it was loudly criticized by none other than Ronald Wilson Reagan immediately after it was sent through.  It would later be described as one of his biggest personal regrets as president.  Would Reagan endorse another wave of amnesty today especially when national security is at the highest level of concern?  I don’t think so.  Who is it that repetitively (and annoyingly) claims to have been a “foot soldier in the Reagan revolution”?  I thought so.  Maybe John McCain wasn’t taking notes during that particular Reaganomics 101 class!

McCain has admitted that economics is not one of his strong suits, which may be a reason why he voted against the Bush tax cuts…not once…but TWICE!  Personally, I think that would be a cop-out because he clearly admitted that the tax cuts benefited the rich way too much.  This is a very scary school of thought for conservatives because it ushers in the talking-points and political ideals of liberal democrats.  The far left have made it clear that one of their primary voting blocks are the people who are easily offended by economic differences between Americans.  They have not hidden the fact that they (democrats) love to use class warfare as a major political platform as an effort to motivate the economically deprived towards voting for them.  A large, vibrant red flag should go up inside the heads of any clear-minded American whenever you hear a politician use the phrase “…benefits the rich too much” because what they’re really saying is that they’re trying to solidify more entitlement programs that would make the lower class even MORE dependent upon the federal and state government.  Let me be absolutely clear…this train of thought is nowhere close to basic core beliefs of true conservatives and republicans.  In fact, this train of thought couldn’t be more opposite!  Yet, here we have a person running for president on the republican ticket who espouses class warfare by his actions, while speaking a completely different tactic with his mouth.  There is no one on earth who would dare say Ronald Reagan would ever endorse higher taxes.  Would Ronald Reagan have voted against the Bush tax cuts (which CLEARLY gave much more of a percentage back to lower income wage earners than higher wage earners) had he been given the chance?  I don’t think so.  Who is it that repetitively (and annoyingly) claims to have been a “foot-soldier in the Reagan revolution”?  I thought so.

       

While there are still several other examples of John McKennedy falling off of the republican bandwagon, I don’t see the point in writing them in this particular blog.  I consider it the responsibility of every American voter to find information on any candidate their deciding to vote for (or against).  Too many men have died in our country fighting for the right to cast a vote in a free political system and whenever anyone takes this right too lightly it is unfortunately the same as spitting in the face of these men.  In the end, you should still vote your conscience and heart, while trying to find the person who most closely resembles your own values and beliefs.  Religion should not be an issue in the matter (which is why I can’t take Huckabee seriously) unless the person running for office has a background of fanatical religious behavior or intolerance.  I will admit, however, that I would have to really know a lot about a person if he/she were running for federal office as a Muslim.  I don’t consider that any form of bigotry because I’m simply acknowledging the fact that we are directly at war with radical Islam.  That’s the only reason, by the way.

As for McDouchebag’s actions, it is clear that he is willing to do or say anything in order to gain power.  He has blatantly spread obvious lies about his main opposition in the republican party, Governor Mitt Romney.  Even the New York Times has written that McCain’s claim about Romney supporting a secret time table for retreat from Iraq can not be supported by the facts.  Yep, that’s right…THE NEW YORK TIMES even recognizes a lie even if it comes from the person they are supporting for president (by the way, it should be a huge alarm sound when the New York Times supports a republican nominee for president)!  McCain’s actions clearly show the American people that he’s willing to do anything to become president.  Eventually, and he’s coming every so close right now, we will be unable to tell the difference between John McCain and Bill/Hillary Clinton. 

It’s downright despicable what McKennedy did just prior to the Florida primaries and because of those actions I can not in good faith vote for him if he does end up winning the republican nomination.  I have promised myself that there is no chance I will ever vote for John McCain because I’m offended that he would assume I’m as stupid as he is when it comes to party politics.

In fact, John McCain actually is a fairly ignorant man.  It is rarely reported that he graduated SECOND FROM THE BOTTOM of his class while at the Naval Academy.  Does this sound like the credentials of a man seeking to become the most powerful person in the world?  Ann Coulter recently said, “John McCain is so stupid that he doesn’t even realize he’s been caught lying”.  While I do not agree with everything Miss Coulter has to say about politics, I will admit that I think she’s really hit a good point with these comments.  McCain is not the sharpest tool in the shed and I think that a McCain presidency would make “W” look like a Rhodes Scholar in comparison!

_______________________________________________

BELOW ARE A FEW (just a few) OF THE LIES, FLIP-FLOPS, AND INDISCRETIONS OF JOHN McCAIN:

  • John Fund, from the Wall Street Journal, reported that McCain would NEVER appoint a judge like Samuel Alito because he “wears his conservatism on his sleeve”.  Recently, at the GOP debates in Simi Valley, CA, John McCain said that he has always supported Alito and embraces the mold that he fits on the bench.  Hmmmmm…
  • McCain went from saying he would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade to saying the exact opposite.  Hmmmm…
  • McCain criticized TV preacher Jerry Falwell as “an agent of intolerance” in 2002, but has since decided to cozy up to the man who said Americans “deserved” the 9/11 attacks. (Indeed, McCain has now hired Falwell’s debate coach.)  Hmmmmm…..
  • McCain used to oppose Bush’s tax cuts for the very wealthy, but he reversed course in February.  Hmmmmm…..
  • In 2000, McCain accused Texas businessmen Sam and Charles Wyly of being corrupt, spending “dirty money” to help finance Bush’s presidential campaign. McCain not only filed a complaint against the Wylys for allegedly violating campaign finance law, he also lashed out at them publicly. In April, McCain reached out to the Wylys for support.  Hmmmmmm….
  • In 2000, McCain accused George W. Bush of being too negative towards him and “attacking” his record.  He said that the campaign George W. Bush ran could never be endorsed or simulated by himself because he could “never sink that low”.  In 2007, John McCain hired the exact same campaign directors/managers as George W. Bush had during the 2000 primaries.  Hmmmmm…..
  • He now not only approves of, but completely endorses a federally mandated “carbon tax” that would add to the cost of gas prices and only be enforced in America.  He agrees that humans are the sole reason for possible climate change (eventhough the jury is definitely still out on this issue), which is a direct opposite view than he had just one year ago.  Hmmmm…..

_______________________________________________

My dear friends, there are dozens of other examples that clearly illustrate the cunning and dishonest nature of John McDouchebag.  He has clearly gone after Mitt Romney for being a “flip flopper” when it is absolutely evident that he is one of the biggest violators of political maneuvering who claims a position depending on which way the wind is blowing.  I hate to be so blunt with assertions like this, but there’s no other way to say it: John McCain, unfortunately, is a bold-face liar who can not be trusted to tell the truth.  He should not be running for president under the republican ticket and if he were running as a democrat or independent then I really wouldn’t have much of a beef with him because he’d be well within his right to say or do exactly what he is currently saying and doing.  It must not go unnoticed that John McCain is attempting to hold the republican party hostage and the body count is piling up in his wake of Machiavellian tactics that only Bill and Hillary Clinton can appreciate.

       

Buyer beware!

Had I known that the major prerequisite for Iowans considering whom to vote for (president of the United States) was to simply be a pastor, preacher, or evengelical freakazoid then I would have become ordained through an on-line surrogate and ran for office myself!  The mere fact that Governor Huckabee is using the predisposed bigotry of evengelical Christians is shameful enough for me to consider voting for myself as a write-in candidate or for the Independent or Libertarian candidate if he is eventually chosen as the GOP nominee! 

“I’d like to ask that same person who voted for Huckabee if they would have still voted for him if he were a Mormon.  I’m guessing that the answer to that question would incredibly easy to figure out…thus proving my assumption of religious manipulation and bigotry.”  – Nostromos, 2008

Did any of the Iowan pinheads consider Huckabee’s past record as a moderate conservative…at best?  Did any of them even care to realize how lenient he has been on giving away tax dollars to illegal immigrants?  I’m not proposing myself as an expert in all political matters, but it seems to me that by giving tuition assistance to illegal immigrants while making blue collar Americans pay for theirs is not only ridiculous, but downright offensive in the highest degree!  I’m also not too sure about how responsible it is to give illegal immigrants access to driving licenses especially since the advent of globalized terrorism aimed squarely at our front door!

Another thing that has rarely been discussed and is doubtful that the masses of home-schooled evengelical bigots even considered before casting their vote for the Huckster is the enormous black-eye Mike Huckabee cast upon himself as a man and his administration as a leader is the disgusting reality that he pardoned hundreds of convicts during his time as Governor of the state of Arkansas.  One of the people he personally sought after to pardon (by personally administering massive amounts of pressure to the parole board) was a convicted rapist and murderer.  After he pardoned him, the sick S.O.B. headed west to Kansas City and murdered a newly wed couple.  Two people who had just took the plunge to begin their lives together anew were snuffed out of existence simply because of the wreckless act of Gov. Huckabee.  This is inexcuseable for any leader we trust to protect us.  It is more than inexcuseable.  It is disgusting and highly aggrivating…but I guess the “Christian” voters of the great state of Iowa didn’t care about that.  How many convicts did Romney pardon after his governorship?  The answer: NONE!  Now, that speaks volumes about the type of man Romney is especially when compared to the type of man Huckabee is. (more…)

According to most political pundits and talking-heads across the country, presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has been gathering momentum (also known as, “moMITTum” to Mitt-heads across the nation), exposure, and support at a rate much higher than Hillary’s frequency of Botox injections!  In fact, Mitt Romney has been earning national respect from voters quicker than Bill Clinton can think of excuses not to sleep in the same room as his wife!  In the past three GOP debates, Governor Romney has blown-up the field by showing off his witt, charisma, knowledge, and public speaking skills.  It has been evident since the beginning that Gov. Romney has continuously kept himself one step ahead of his competitors with invigorating ideas, well thought-out comments, and pithy (but remarkably substantive) rebuttles to statements made by his competitors and/or ridiculous questions asked by the moderators.  However, it’s not like John McCain and Ron Paul have really made it difficult for him, either!

   

For the third straight time, Mitt Romney has “won” the debate by focusing on the fundamentals of his presidental campaign platform: The Strength of American FAMILIES, the Strength of the ECONOMY, and the Strength of the MILITARY.  Basically, it’s a full-frontal assault focusing on “STRENGTH” instead of weakness…which (unfortunately) is the shameful approach of the [other] presidential nominees running out of the political party symbolically represented by a jackass.  No kidding.  With all of the vitriol spewing from the Demoncratic Party’s foaming mouths regarding anything America (Bush) has done in an effort to fight and combat radical Islam, the Left has conveniently (yet again) avoided producing alternate solutions to this growing issue.  Heh…it’s almost as if the Demoncratic Party wants to campaign on a “platform of change“, but fool the American people by never actually submitting ideas for change!!!  [I GUESS NO ONE CAN BLAME THEM SINCE IT SEEMED TO WORK RATHER WELL IN NOVEMBER OF 2006]  It has been a pleasant surprise, however, to see a major presidential nominee focus so intently on the current status of the American family companioned by his sincere intent to strengthen the family unit here in the U.S.A., which is one of the more astute and original platforms to build upon as a politician.  The American family unit has been under attack for the better part of three decades and the deterioration of this family unit has been the fundamental reason for our decaying society.  If anyone can help strengthen the central aspect of the overall strength of our country (the family unit) then that person is without a doubt the former Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachussetts, Mitt Romney.  It simply doesn’t get any better than him.  Period.

   

Time after time, Gov. Romney has professionally deflected the ridiculous questions about his faith by combining them with his personal (but not necessarily religious) beliefs about social morals, integrity, family strength, and honesty.  The “main-scream” media is not about to ease up on their bombastic and shameful attacks on Mitt Romney, but there is a silver-lining to this strategy of trying to weaken Romney through his religous affiliation.  If anyone can turn a negative into a positive it is Governor Romney and he’s proven this ability countless times in his professional career, political career, and in the case of the 2002 Winter Olympics.  Now he is doing the same thing with the attempts to label him as a wreckless religious icon by fielding each and every question with his head held high and enveloping the question with sincere-driven comments of his personal values and comittments, which are second-to-none.  There hasn’t been a presidential hopeful with more courage, more private-sector success, more moral character, or more integrity than Governor Mitt Romney.  There just simply hasn’t been anyone and I defy the person who says there has!  He’s been married only once; has never fathered a child out of wed-lock; does not drink alcohol, use drugs, or use tobacco; he has TWO degrees from Harvard; has never been involved with personal, professional, or political scandal; he’s a self-made millionaire through businesses that he personally got off the ground; has never been in trouble with the law; he’s rescued several “blue-chip” Fortune 500 companies from disaster and turned them into household names (can anyone say, “Staples”???  How about “Dominos Pizza”???); and has never impugned his integrity in order to get something of value.  He attends church services regularly and garners his life by the teachings of Jesus Christ, whom he has proclaimed as his one and only personal Lord and Savior.  The actual name of the church he attends is: The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  Personally, I can’t think of one single Christian denomination (besides the “Church of Christ“, or “Community of Christ“) that has the literal name of “Jesus Christ” in it besides the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!  I’m not inferring anything by that comment except for the fact that the mere name of his church reflects that they are very much oriented towards worshiping, understanding, and believing in Jesus Christ…the first fundamental aspect of “Christianity“.  If the media and his opponents want to label him as “non-Christian” then they obviously haven’t a clue as to what they’re talking about because I feel that there has NEVER been more of a Christ-like person running for the office of Commander in Chief than Mitt Romney…and no, I’m not forgetting that Pat Robertson, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson (what a JOKE) have recently made attempts to become POTUS (President of the United States)!  In fact, I bet there are more people in America whom refuse to call Al Sharpton, Pat Robertson, and Jesse Jackson by their self-proclaimed titles of “Reverend” than there are whom truly do support their titular rankings in Christianity!  Now, THAT would be an interesting national poll, wouldn’t you think?

   

America would benefit mightily by the leadership and moral character of Mitt Romney and Mormons across the world can easily say that Mitt Romney would NEVER use his religion or religious beliefs to mitigate, arbitrate, or force his agenda through the system.  In fact, not even his own church (The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints) has publicly endorsed him because THAT’S NOT WHAT THE MORMON CHURCH GETS INVOLVED WITH!  The LDS church has always been apolitical in everything they have done; and they’ve never actively (or financially) promoted, supported, or fought against any political party or individual politician!  You will NEVER hear a Mormon Bishop (equivilant to a pastor or preacher in other Christian churches) stand up in front of the congregation and submit his ideas for or against a politician/political party.  You may hear some Mormons get rather vociferous about certain social issues and laws, but they will never use their church to endorse a politician.  It just simply doesn’t happen, nor will it ever!  While other churches use their influence to nudge their paritioners or congegation to “vote a certain way” or to “support a certain politician”, the Mormon church will never be a part of such practice.  So, with all of this evidence supporting the idea that Mitt Romney will be the Commander in Chief, first…father, second…Mormon, third…why is there so much angst, vitriol, and fear that having a Mormon president will be detrimental to the country as a whole?  Do they not realize that most Mormons are usually the highest regarded moral examples of their respective communities and neighborhoods?  Do they not realize that Mormons are usually the most actively participating members of Christianity 365 days a year?  Not alwaysbut usually!  Of course, there are always some bad apples from every apple tree, but as a whole I think it is safe to say that the Mormon community is rather solid in their character, morals, and actions…[and NO, the Mormon church does NOT practice polygamy (a widely held opinion of many)].  Gee-whiz, wouldn’t it be nice to finally have someone as president who exhibits such a high moral code?  With the world apparently crashing down in overall morality and integrity, I think it is high time that the country set-apart as the world leader put a man in the Oval Office with such a pristine, unshakable character towards the greater good of humanity.  I think it’s about time that America put a man in office who will use the Oval Office desk as a tool to write law, veto ridiculous spending, balance the budget, manage wars, and protect the American family…instead of using it as a “stripper’s pole at a cheap late night brothel”!

   

I stand committed to the support of Mitt Romney for our nation’s next Commander in Chief because I feel very strongly that Gov. Romney possesses every important skill/ability that we not only expect out of a president, but desperately need.  I feel strongly that I can tell anyone that, if elected, Mitt Romney will not get involved with the personal scandals that have flooded the scene of our past leaders.  He will clean up Washington D.C. and put an end to pork-barrell spending that has crippled our nation’s financial situation.  He will lower taxes and make living in this great country much easier as well as enjoyable.  He will strengthen our military across the board.  He will restructure our beurocratic entitlement and social systems into a much more refined and successful program.  He will work towards the goal of making sure that EVERY American has sufficient health-care provisions.  He will highlight and focus on education for our children; turning this issue into success instead of rhetoric.  He will fight to keep American jobs on American soil.  He will work vigorously on strengthening the family unit and making America a more convenient place for the establishment of family values.  He will protect traditional marriage as being between a man and a woman.  He will fight to restore sovereignty to the states and give them more opportunities to reflect the values of those living in their respective states; such as abortion and taxes…after all, why else do we even have 50 states if they’re not sovereign?  He will never give up on the current war on terror, which threatens the security of the world.  He will institute a broad foreign policy that will put America back on the pedestal as the leading nation of nations (based on a theory that he believes in, which is that “politics end at our nation’s shore-lines”).  Why do I claim that he will do these things?  Simple.  He’s done them in the past already!  Everything he sought out to accomplish as Governor in one of the most liberal states in the country he has accomplished, thus leaving the state in pristine condition upon his exit after only four years!  [IT SHOULD ALSO BE NOTED THAT HE ACCOMPLISHED EVERYTHING IN THE COMMONWEALTH WITHOUT RAISING TAXES…EVER!]  He’s a man of his word and puts a high priority on honesty and integrity; what he says he’ll do is exactly what he will do and there is NO evidence to the contrary.  He could be the best thing to happen to the U.S.A. since the World War II era.  It’s almost as if he’s too good to be true!

THOUGHT:  The attractive things about Mitt Romney have been his professional successes, political successes, 2002 Winter Olympic success, family success, intellectual successes, communicating abilities, leadership qualities, and character.  He personally exhibits all of these strengths with every step he takes and the national media (the outfits who actually support viable candidates from the GOP) is quick to realize this and bring it to the front and center.  However, a good question to ask (or at least think about) is whether or not Mitt Romney would be the same man today (with ALL of his current successes, strengths, and accomplisments) if he were not a member of the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints???  Would it be fair to say that Mitt Romney is the man who he is today because he is a Mormon?  What if he were a Catholic?  A Baptist?  Agnostic?  An Athiest?  Would he still have the same values, skills, and experience?  Better yet, if he did still have the same values and skills then would he still be a glimmering example by his life’s actions and decisions?  I’m not going to comment on this, but rather pose this thought in a codified manner and leave it at that.  It’s an interesting thought to process in your mind and may help some of you get passed the idea of his relationship with the Mormon church as being something negative instead of something positive.

QUOTES FROM GOV. MITT ROMNEY ON FAMILY VALUES AND STRENGTH:

“‘…talk makes no sense when you’re not getting anything done. We need someone who understands that it’s the results we’re after. And we need a president who understands that the strength of America is not in Washington, D.C. – it’s in our people, it’s in our churches, it’s in our businesses. It’s in thousands of volunteer associations all across this country that make our country better every day, and if our government could just get out of the way, America all by itself would just become greater and greater.'”

People, not government, are the source of America’s strength.  There is no place that is more important to the future strength of America than the American home.”

What is the culture of this country, what are our underpinnings? We respect hard work … We are self reliant, we respect human life, we are a religious people… We are a purpose-driven people founded on the family unit. I think every child deserves to have a mother and a father.”

America cannot continue to lead the family of nations around the world if we suffer the collapse of the family here at home.”

American values are at the heart of America’s historic rise to world leadership. These include, among others, respect for hard work, sacrifice, civility, love of family, respect for life, education and love of freedom. To remain a superpower in the world we must continuously and vigorously reaffirm these key components that have led to America’s greatness as a country.”

ON ABORTION:

I am pro-life. I believe that abortion is the wrong choice except in cases of incest, rape, and to save the life of the mother. I wish the people of America agreed, and that the laws of our nation could reflect that view. But while the nation remains so divided over abortion, I believe that the states, through the democratic process, should determine their own abortion laws and not have them dictated by judicial mandate.”
