I was pleasantly surprised to see a Newsweek article written by Niall Ferguson that hit the cover page: Hit the Road, Barack: Why We Need a New President. Who wrote:
In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.” He promised to “restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.” And he promised to “transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Unfortunately the president’s scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges is pitiful.
Indeed, the Democratic Convention falls into the same category: “pitiful”.
Yet the public mistakes his administration’s astonishingly uninhibited use of political assassination for a coherent strategy. According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London, the civilian proportion of drone casualties was 16 percent last year. Ask yourself how the liberal media would have behaved if George W. Bush had used drones this way. Yet somehow, it is only ever Republican secretaries of state who are accused of committing “war crimes.”
BH Obama can do anything he wants.
The latest, which I heard in a local radio editorial: Someone broke into the accounting firm where Mitt Romney’s records are and stole tax records. The culprit(s) attempt at blackmail against Romney for $1 million, failed. Passed to whoever received them, then turned over to the FBI. This brings a flashback when Obama was running against a Republican and someone broke into his sealed divorce records and made it public, courtesy of the unscrupulous media, and that is how BH Obama (then an unknown) got into public office. Then there was the case of publishing the social security number of Allen West in Florida, traced back to a Democrat political organization, and other unscrupulous campaign tactics against the former US Army colonel.
There have been corrupt individuals in the Republican Party over its history, no doubt – but no political party can match the corrupt record of the Democratic Party of the United States.
In this campaign, more than ever before, the Democratic propaganda machine is so boldly lying that anyone with minimal research can challenge their rhetoric and wild claims. What is scary is the amount of Americans who are still posting OBAMA THEN AND OBAMA NOW signs in their front yards, and others following the Democrats like the useful idiots they are.
Actually the Obama then and the Obama now are the same corrupt, unconstitutional socialist individual with a mysterious past filled with association with socialists, criminals, union thugs, and a former terrorist-now college professor in Chicago. Association does not apply, according to Democrats, unless you are a Republican. Hypocrisy.
They will be like Woodrow Wilson, who finally awoke to see what he had done - when it is too late, and those blind followers will discover what corruption and deceit they have supported.Wilson, like Obama, was a progressive. Wilson, like Obama, is recorded in history as our worst presidents. We can thank Woodrow Wilson for Prohibition and the Federal Reserve system, a privately controlled entity that controls US money.
For those of you who do not know it, I was a third generation Democratic Party person, and my father belonged to a trade union, off and on. In the 1980s, thanks to Ronald Reagan’s common sense and wisdom (who also left the Democratic Party) made me start researching everything said (on both sides of the political aisle) – with open eyes for the first time.
Too often people state that political ideology is just opinion … however, we are not talking about color or fashion preference here – we are utilizing our freedom and rights of voting with false information if we do not research. Just because a candidate looks nice, speaks well, or whatever, is no “opinion” – it is like walking in a dark cave expecting to find one’s way out without light. Everyone has a right to their opinion (as many people say) – however, they do not have the right to make up facts or ignore them when it comes to who operates OUR government. If both candidates running were honest and a constitutionalist – then it would be a decision based upon comparison, scrutiny, and probably “opinion” on certain issues.
Yet, not every issue is black and white, good or bad, or simple. Abortion, for example - The sociocrats tell us that women have the right to govern their own body, yet those same people will harass someone who smokes cigarettes and insist that they pay an exorbitant amount of tax to punish them. First, that is hypocrisy, plain and simple; and secondly, taxation is not to punish or segregate a portion of society – it is for FUNDING GOVERNMENT EXPENSES. Abortion is a decision that should be made between the woman and her doctor, and the decision does not just involve her body – but the termination of a living being that has its own body. This is where opinion and belief come in: I believe that abortion is acceptable when a woman has been raped. However, if we are to limit legal reasons for abortion, then we must reinstate government-operated orphanages once again. In addition, government should not be involved and taxpayers should not be required to fund abortions. Aborted infants equates to big money, sold for research. Where is legal and moral justification of taking an infant's life because the mother acted irresponsible when it comes to birth control? If one examines this issue objectively, it comes to be a conundrum and then falls to opinions.
Choosing candidates who want to operate OUR government should not be based upon opinions – just facts and ensure that the candidate is a constitutionalist, which means powers of government and those that operate it are limited according to the Constitution of the United States, not because of activist interpretation of Supreme Court Justices.
Paul Ryan is running to be the Vice President of the United States, and he has a plan, not a hypocritical narrative. Ferguson wrote about this:
The voters now face a stark choice. They can let Barack Obama’s rambling, solipsistic narrative continue until they find themselves living in some American version of Europe, with low growth, high unemployment, even higher debt—and real geopolitical decline. Or they can opt for real change: the kind of change that will end four years of economic underperformance, stop the terrifying accumulation of debt, and reestablish a secure fiscal foundation for American national security.
The choice is clear and simple, if only more Americans examined the facts and insist that candidates not just tell us what we already know, but how they are going to fix it. Those plans should be something workable, and different than what both sides of the political aisle have been doing over and over again – and still do not realize that they must examine issues more closely and learn from their mistakes.
Socialism does not work economically. Socialism is a collective ideology, therefore, individual freedom and liberty is overridden. That is NOT what the Founders established. They established a democratic, constitutional republic of which was the first in the history of human civilization – and thus far has not been surpassed if it is followed. And, that, my friends, is the gist of what issues we face today. We the People have allowed those that operate OUR government to turn away from the Constitution and allowed Supreme Court Justices to legislate from the judicial bench by “interpreting” the articles and amendments of that document to coincide whatever they advocate, or the political entity they support. All have failed to comply with the sacred oath of their office in one degree or another, on both sides of the political fence. The Democrats have taken it to the extreme to where we will soon be following the national tragedies of European nations who did not emulate our constitutional republic, but instead thought they could create a working model of democratic socialism.
The United States should be a leader of freedom, individual liberty, property rights – all that our Founders established - if they wish to be successful and truly free. We should not be adopting European ideology, constitutions, or nanny state policies – we should be sticking with what works: Constitution of the United States and its amendments.
How much better we will be with Romney as president, I cannot foresee; however, I do know that viewing the policies and actions of Obama, we certainly cannot tolerate and should not tolerate another day with him in the Oval Office and his companions in the US Congress or the stooges in the Supreme Court.
I have viewed Newsweek as a leftist media since Tina Brown took it over. It is astounding that such an article would appear, and more astounding that it was on the front cover.
Could it be objectivity is creeping into the magazine once again?
Or is it just that even Newsweek is disgusted with the Obama administration and socialist colleagues in Congress?
We’ll have to keep an eye on that.
