Iowa and our future

January 11, 2016

Sorry to say I haven’t been here blogging lately as there have been medical issues with my family. Working all issues out and will be back posting information about the Iowa caucus and the others in the pipe.

As we stated on Patriot Express Radio more than 6 years ago these next few elections are critical. The results will bring our nation back to logical and responsible leadership agenda turning back the PC police.

Or, we will continue down the path that we have traveled over the past 80 years and continue to erode the quality of life in America for every citizen with the egregious spending habits of those elected to represent our best interest.

With 19 trillion dollars in Federal debt plus over 122 trillion in unfunded mandates we definitely need new ideas and leadership roaming the Halls of Congress as well as 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Our nation will be destroyed in the next few decades if we do not curtail our out of control spending, our entitlement mentality and our nations dumbing down of it’s citizens all in the name of power.

Be vigilant how you vote. Know your candidates and ask the important questions which are relevant to you. We need help.

Why Raising the Minimum Wage Is So Important

February 9, 2014

The new issue that our president is dealing with is the minimum wage. For all Federal contractors we will soon have a new executive order that states they will be paid $10.10 an hour guaranteed, their new minimum wage to give them livable wages.

Let’s look at this closely folks. Currently in all of America only 3.55 million individuals earn minimum wage according to the non partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report and Pew Research Center.

If you look at these numbers one would have to ask why address this issue now? Bureau of Labor released data stating federal employees on average making $114,436.00 or approximately $27,000.00 more than the private sector, could this issue be smoke and mirrors to hide some facet of this administrations agenda?

It is interesting our borders have not been secured, Gitmo is still open for business and as stated for 7 years now, “this will be the most transparent administration ever” and the State Department is under intense scrutiny for falsely stating the reason 4 brave Americans died in Benghazi with Hillary Clinton at the helm.

The IRS scandal, where the director pleaded the fifth and during an interview with The Factor once again our president didn’t see anything wrong with Lois targeting Tea Party Conservative groups. Hearing after hearing for a year now and no one is being held accountable for these actions. 

One has to wonder why raising the minimum wage is so important it is now at the top of President Obama’s agenda with all that has transpired in his administration over the past 5 years. It definitely is not because too many contractors are starving on minimum wage earnings.

 

 


Many Citizens Are Finally Giving Up

January 13, 2014

This Republic, The United States of America is one of the greatest, longest Constitutionally run government the world has ever witnessed and now many citizens are finally giving up on it.  With so many years of our elected officials continually working to destroy our way of life instead of enhancing it, working harder to get re-elected at the hands of lobbyists and special interest groups along with their own personal agenda the great individuals across the lane have finally said enough already.

The Tea Party Movement started just before the 2010 elections to shoot out we are “taxed enough already” and most of congress turned a deaf ear only to find this organization would be the downfall of many a politicians careers.  The common everyday citizen doesn’t care about the Republican agenda, or the Democratic  agenda any longer, they care about the American agenda once again.

Citizens all across the nation are taking heed to all that has been said concerning the direction our nation has traveled over the past 50 years and they are frightened. The fear the 17 trillion dollar national debt, they fear the blatant disregard our politicians have for our Constitution and all the liberties it provides us. The Patriots of this nation are ready to stand together once again as they had to do so many years ago fighting against a government that had an agenda contrary to their wants and beliefs.

As I traveled across the country talking to individuals during the 2010 campaign I realized just how upset the common folks were. Their stories were haunting. Losing their jobs, their houses and even some lost their families do to the economic hardship our government created for many of them.

The citizens are ready to make a statement for all to hear. They are crying out loud through the hillsides and the meadows, along the mountain tops and across the rivers hoping their voices will finally be heard by candidates who are once again running for America and it’s values instead of the good ole boys buddy system many have become extremely accustomed too.  Many have stated they want a candidate who will listen to the issues that are important to them not dictate what they feel strongly about.

The time is now as good people all over the nation gather to discuss running for office to remove those entrenched in the political arena secluded from reality for far too long.  We have a re-birth of individuals fed up with politics as usual, a resurgence of a love for country that trumps those with a love for the power associated with our Congress.  This next election will be one that will be remembered for a long long time.  We will see a swing in voters placing their ballots for an individual and not a political party, and that will be good.

Maybe, just maybe then we will stop spending trillions of dollars a year that we don’t have to spend just to shore up some free program to continue to get votes. Maybe, just maybe then  we will see our congress working to achieve greatness once again by holding themselves accountable to do what is right for America and not special interest.  We still are a long way from election night but there will be changes that we, patriots of this great nation, that we can believe in finally.


We shouldn’t have to second guess our President

February 21, 2013

In today’s economy with families struggling to pay their mortgages, send children to college and put food on the table we shouldn’t have to second guess our President.  When he goes out to  campaigns our thoughts should be focused on the content and not the truth.

However, with this president  at every turn  we hear so much divisive language and are giving bad information from the administration up to and including his words we have to ask ourselves what is the truth. We are being bullied into believing if Congress doesn’t pass one bill or another the nation will disintegrate and go down in flames. People won’t get social security checks, schools will closed as teachers are laid off and the list goes on and on.

Using fear to advance his cause of larger government, bigger spending packages and higher taxes on everyone has worked up to now. The majority of citizens of this nation have bought his rhetoric and continue to believe his false prophets.  When told we would fall off the fiscal cliff if we didn’t pass a stimulus package to bail out those companies “too big to fail” we bought into it. History will show it didn’t work and we did in fact head down that path of no return as he continued to give news organizations this “too big to fail” speech.

While critical of  these banks on Wall Street in public he was receiving millions from them in campaign contributions. One hand washed the other hand as he and his administration sent them billions of dollars to keep them open. With the taxpayers money there were accusations that certain banks used funds to lobby against bills that would hurt them along with giving out huge bonuses to top executives stating to keep the best produces you have to offer incentives through deception or illusion.

We heard throughout his administration on a daily basis though the president’s efforts  we ” have saved our created two million new jobs. ”  Then two hundred thousand, one million, four hundred thousand, within weeks we continually heard numbers that just didn’t add up. The fact is how do you save our create jobs when your administration was continually losing them, up to seven million at one point in time.

Now, today we face sequestration of 85 billion dollars to start March 1, 2013 if congress does not pass another bill showing where the cuts should be made.  Again, last year the president stated he would veto any attempt to block these cuts from taking place because our nation needs to get back on budget.  Today, once again  he is out there campaigning gloom and doom if these cuts take place while having members of emergency outlets as backdrops behind him.

These cuts that are slated to take place would stop our government from running for all of eight days if we had to shut down the nation’s capital because of these cuts. Of course we won’t shut down the government over 85 billion dollars but to listen to the president our military will be jeopardize, research will be devastated and vital services such as emergency responders will be degraded and the list goes on.

If our president were a leader his message would be to work together to find the cuts that are fraudulent and wasteful. He would be telling American’s we as a nation can not continue to spend 1.4 trillion dollars a year that we don’t take in. Revenues for our nation equal 2.3 trillion dollars currently and the budget has been over 3.5 trillion dollars. There is a spending problem in Washington even if they won’t admit it.


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.


Are American taxpayers finally waking up?

June 6, 2012

Are American taxpayers finally waking up? After the ballots were counted in Wisconsin last night it appears as if they are sending a new message that has been the topic of debate now for over 25 years shared by Representative Ron Paul (R) Texas, Stop spending what you don’t have.

Wisconsin voters now appear to believe in that message as they came out to have their voices heard in only one of three recall elections every held for a governor of a state.  Only this time, for the first time in history the governor elect survived the ordeal.  Governor Scott Walker (R) made a promise to the voters and followed through with it once sworn in.

What he did was to take Ron Paul’s position by limiting  governments ability to take from taxpayers and give to government employees. What Governor Walker did needed to be addressed due to the ever-increasing deficit the state was amassing.

The 3.5 billion dollar deficit was a detriment for survival of the state. What Mr. Walker did was to reduce the unions ability to continue to take from taxpayers hard earn income to give to public servant union members in way of benefits and health care.

Governor Walker demanded the legislature of Wisconsin to pass laws that addressed the issue.  Democrats dissappeared across state lines so they would not have to vote with hopes of stalling the process so union leaders would continue to fund their re-election campaigns.

The challenge was difficult, but true to his word Governor Walker continued to push for the employees paid by the tax payers of Wisconsin paid more into their healthcare and retirement programs.  By increasing members shares to pay for these benefits the deficit has been removed and will have a surplus of a few hundred million dollars by the end of his term.

Those in Washington should take heed as voters are frustrated with their elected officials who somehow still believe they know better how to spend our money.  Both Democrat and Republican representatives have created a national debt hovering around 16 trillion dollars and continuing to spend as Senator McCain said “Like drunken sailors”.

CBO  just released a report stating we now have a debt that is 70% of GDP for the first time since WWII.  The tread in Washington must stop and a new vision for America must take root.  Are Ron Paul’s positions finally taking hold with the American taxpayer? Let’s hope so as his reasoning is simple, get government out of the lives of the American people as people know better how to spend their money.
