The Nanny State Continues

November 9, 2012

With the 2012 presidential elections finally over we find that the majority of those registered to vote and in fact did vote believe in this administrations policies.  As we watched the results both parties had highs and lows until the states turned blue sweeping across the nation showing us the nanny state continues as the president will push for higher taxes for the wealthy, more food stamps, more welfare and more of our freedoms being eradicated with each piece of legislation passed.

Boenher stated today he would not be a party to any legislation that raised taxes on the rich, the poor or those in the middle class With the strong stance we have to remember the Speaker of The House talks a the talk and doesn’t necessarily walk the walk.

In the past Boenher has caved in to give the Democrats what they insisted on even after going public stating he wouldn’t support the legislation. Here is the prime example when dealing with the debt crisis just a few short years ago he stood up in front of America vehemently proclaiming the debt ceiling will not be raised.

With all his strong talk America believed him and there was outrage among many across this nation.  Well, he voted to raise the debt ceiling not once  but three times under the current president and 7 times under our previous president. There have been many issues he took one stance and came to an agreement to change the stance without receiving what the majority attempted to achieved.

Without a budget being passed in the Senate for four years by Senate Leader Harry Reid, we can look for more of the same.  No budget, trillions in additional debt added to the nation and more fraud and waste unaccounted for.  This nation is in turmoil as our elected officials continue to spend more than we have and no one will take the needed steps to stop the insanity of continuing to spend more of what they do not have.

The saga will continue only this election the minority voter hopes and prays for Congress to get tough being accountable for their actions.  Time will tell as we patiently await the results of this election.  We won’t have to wait four years to see these results as they most likely will show almost immediately after we have the swearing in ceremony come January.  Working class individuals will continue to worry about being told what they can or can not do.  The nanny state will erode more and more of our liberties and freedoms as stipulated in our Constitution.

Nevada will be huge for the upcoming election

November 1, 2012
With 6 electoral college votes Nevada will be key in the results of the November 6th ballot picking the next President of these United States.  Who has the advantage, Mitt or Barack? With over 119 thousand more democratic registered voters in the state Barack has the advantage on paper.

Will that advantage result in a win for his campaign? Not likely as Nevadans remember how this President devastated our cities and our state when he went on air not once but twice to inform the nation they shouldn’t go “to Vegas” in these tough economic times spending “college” funds.

Our economy suffered worst then any state in the Union with high unemployment, high foreclosure rates and a drop in tourism due to the words spewed from the Presidents mouth.  Many of those who voted for him in 2008 have expressed sorrow as they realize the hype was better than the word.

With only 37% of the promises made on the campaign trail held to date, the road in Nevada will be a tough fight.  We remember how he stated just a few short years ago he would reduce the national debt by 50% because it was “unpatriotic” to increase the debt by 4 trillion as George Bush had done.  Well, with 6 trillion added to the debt since taking office Obama has failed on delivering that promise.

Candidate Obama also promised in his first year he would sign into law immigration reform because the cost was to exorbitant for any state to continue to fund. Well not only didn’t he pass any legislation but he never even offered any to the Congress which by the way was democratic for the first two years.

There are a host of other promises made and broken, too many to list here. So in these closing days as both candidates talk about how they would handle the office once elected the stories are vastly different. One candidate wants four more years to finish what he stated.  While the other wants four years to fix the mess that has oven taken our nation.

Come November 6th, 2012 be sure to exercise your God-given right and vote for the candidate of your choice.  We as a nation are guaranteed basic freedoms and rights under our Constitution that no other nation in the world has. Let’s not lose them.
