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.


Real Conservatives are for Ron Paul, not Mitt Romney

May 16, 2012

Real conservatives are cringing at the fact the establishment of the Republican Party have endorsed Mitt Romney as their guy. Looking at his record as Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt wasn’t really that conservative. He passed RomneyCare which ObamaCare was tailored after.  He raised (taxes) fees equaling $730 million dollars his first year in office while running  his election campaign stating he would not raise taxes if elected.

As candidate for governor he stated he was Pro choice as women should be able to “preserve and protect” their right to choose. He also  stated “I will not create jobs that kill people” referring to PG&E company under attack for not cleaning up and creating a safe environment for the workers and citizens of the state.

Mitt did some good as the Governor by cutting the budget and spending to help reduce the billions of dollars in deficits he inherited from the prior administration.  This was done with a majority of Democratic leaders in the State Legislature, a feat that would seem impossible today.

With that said, real conservatives are for Ron Paul, not Mitt Romney.  So as the Republican Party Convention edges closer and closer to Tampa Ron Paul announced a new strategy a few days ago as he moves forward with his bid for the White House. With funding  difficult to capture the Paul campaign will quit spending on media advertising throughout the rest of the campaign. Instead they will attempt to secure enough delegates in each state to head to Tampa and vote for him if Romney does not receive the required votes for nomination on the first go around.

Just a few weeks ago, the Central Committee arm of the Republican Party informed the leaders of the Nevada GOP they will not be allowed at the convention in Florida if Paul supporters are the majority of delegates sent to Tampa.

The Republican base nationally are outraged and want Mitt as their man and went as far as to send a letter to state officials of the Republican Party to stop the infiltration of Paul delegates or not be invited to the convention. O f course the letter is non binding as what the Paul campaign is doing is well within their rights.

By stacking the delegates in Tampa the Paul  campaign wants an advantage no advertising expense can give you.  If Romney doesn’t win the nomination on the first count those delegates committed to Paul can then vote for him during the second count.


Ann Romney speaks out

April 25, 2012

Tonight Ann Romney talked with audience members in New Hampshire as the results of the primaries came in with her husband sweeping all five states. She spoke with a passion as if she and the audience were at a kitchen table or sitting on a couch in some ones living room.

With a smile from ear to ear, Ann began with “WOW” continuing with “it’s good to be back here” as the crowd roared at every word spoken.  She told the story why the Romney family set out just over a year ago talking about this campaign in their living room stating “and I was hesitant” knowing they went through a tough primary four years ago.

Mrs. Romney standing at the podium with the message across the front “A Better America Begins Tonight” she told the room full of supporters she was emphatic that would be the last Presidential Campaign they would be involved in. She spoke at the Radisson Hotel in Downtown Manchester nervous at moments as her message was sent out.

With watery eyes Ann told the crowd she was reminded by her husband of 43 years that “I said that after every pregnancy”.  Ann continued “but I knew our country was in real trouble, I knew our country needed real leadership to turn these things around so I asked Mitt one simple question, can you fix it?  He said yes and that’s all I needed to know. I said, I said if you can fix it, we need to do this.”

As she introduced her husband Mitt Romney the crowd went wild with enthusiasm, cheering and clapping as he walked up to the microphone to thank all those who help win these primaries. As he spoke he half heartedly smiled as is his pattern thanking not only those who voted but he went on “and tonight I can also say, thank you America, because after 43 primaries and caucuses, many long days and more than a few long nights I can say with confidence and gratitude that you have given me a great honor and solemn responsibility and together we are going to win on November 6th.”

Mitt talked about the weak leadership in this nation. He talked about the “mom and dad” on food stamps for the first time in their lives. He talked about business owners who had to cut back in order to keep their doors open.  His message to America is this “hold on a little longer, a better America begins tonight”.

Above the crowds yells and screams “go Mitt go”, he continued “the last few years have been the best that Barack Obama could do, but it is not the best America can do. Tonight is the beginning of the end of the disappointments of the Obama years and it’s the start of the new and better chapter we will write together.”

Many citizens may not agree Mitt can fix this country, however after three years of the promises from Obama many individuals are worst off today then they were when he took office.  Under the Obama administration our debt has risen, our unemployment has risen, our foreclosure rate has risen and our chances to advance at our workplace has diminished.

The issues we face today are far greater than the ones from four years ago.The message from the Republican establishment is simple, Mitt is the man.  From others outside the beltway the message from conservatives is, vote for anyone but Obama.  Will Americans rally behind Mitt or will they remain split and campaign for the candidate they believe in such as Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul?”

This election is about freedom and a less intrusive government. This election is about doing what is right for the country once again. Can Mitt fix it, if elected we hope so.


American Pride

State of the Union Speech 2012

January 25, 2012

This year the speech started with a huge round of applause from both sides of the aisle as Representative Giffords name was called out. The applause lasted for several minutes as members showed admiration for her strength and courage as she fights back from a near fatal shooting at one of her campaign rallies last year.

The President started with a soft “Thank you” as he received several minutes of recognition clapping and cheering his arrival. Speaker Boehner introduced the President as all others have in the past.  He stated last month he greeted many soldiers as they returned from war zones across the ocean signifying the end of the wars.

“For the first time in 9 years there are no American’s fighting in Iraq.” He continued stating the achievements of our military personal and extended a thought “Imagine what we could accomplish if we” worked like them.  He discussed how hard work pays off in any economy.  He talked about his relatives who were part of the America success story during the greatest days of this nation.

He discussed how everyone needs to get a shot and a fair shake and plays by the same set of rules. “What’s at stake are not Democrat values, Republican values, but American values.”  Hard working Americans struggled as the top members of organizations prospered with huge bonuses and payroll. “It was wrong” our President stated.

“In the last twenty-two months businesses have created more than 3 million jobs.” American manufacturers are hiring once again and his administration has placed in effect new rules so the greed of those CEO’s will never bring about another economic crisis again. He goes on to lay out a blue print for the future of America.

It beings with “American Manufacturing” and having the strength to set standards to help those businesses that were nearly bankrupt just a few years ago. “We bet on American Workers” and now the industry is back  because of the policies he initiated. A few weeks ago the President stated the CEO of Masterlock told him it makes sense to bring jobs back home now and they are at full capacity for the first time since 2005.

The President segued into the tax codes and policies for companies that outsource jobs. He also mentioned no company should have less of a tax burden for relocating out of the country. Business need to be rewarded for remaining here in the United States and those who leave must pay higher taxes.

Competitors must play by the rules and his administration has helped stop China and other nations from cheating the system. Tonight the President announced his plan to bring on a new agency that will monitor foreign countries and the products they ship into our country.  This ” Trade Enforcement Unit”  will inspect for counterfeit products being imported to level the playing field.

President Obama talked about our Education system and how we as a Nation must increase resources to keep the best teachers on the job and teach to learn not to test. He went on to say we need to get rid of those instructors who are not fit to teach the students. The President went on to insist every state keep students in school through graduation or until 18 without the ability to dropout.

Student aid was addressed next by insisting higher education do their part to keep costs down. Higher is an “economic imperative” that every American deserves to have.  “I believe as strongly as ever we need to take on illegal immigration”.  “We need comprehensive immigration reform right now.”   At this point he received a huge round of applause as he continued to address this issue.

“Women should earn equal pay for equal work” in our economy. Every individual should be supported for innovation and inventiveness. He now wants to tear down regulations that create problems for entrepreneurs. The President wants a bill on his desk so he can sign it.  American made energy is where our future is and according to the President we need to open more land to increase production and develop “Every available source of energy” with government help where needed.

Clean energy is the energy of the future. The President will not stop working towards this sector of energy regardless of the feelings of America.  He wants to give incentives to businesses to stop wasteful use of energy and subsidies for building the clean energy future.

Next, with the money we no longer a spending on war he wants to take half and pay down our debt and the other half to rebuild the infrastructure of our country.  This will create jobs for all Americans.

With the housing crisis the President wants to offer lower interest loans to homeowners in need. No more irresponsible behavior, rules will be enacted to prevent the problems elevated in the mortgage industry that created this crisis. He wants to take away incentives that make the playing field advantageous for one member of society and not another.

Anti-fraud laws will be adhered to and he wants new and sweeping legislation passed holding business entities accountable for fraudulent activity against society.  No longer should predatory lending practices be condoned.

Our tax policies need reform so millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share of taxes. 25% of millionaires pay less taxes than a million middle class members of this society. Those struggling in this economy do not need increases, they need relief.  Those fortunate enough to make millions should pay their fair share, that is all the President is asking. With this tax policy we can reduce our deficit according to President Obama.

Finally the President stated none of these issues can be worked on unless both parties work together to do what is good for the people and not just those in Congress or any other Federal employee.  The government needs to be reduced in size and the President wants freedom from Congress to enact these sweeping reforms without having Congress meddling.

“America is back” is the message from leaders from all around the world. As President, Obama intends to continue to work with all nations helping to secure our country and those of our allies.  Our armed Force Members are to be taken care of better than they had been in the past. As President funding for military has increased each year and will continue to do so as those members serve our Nation.

This was a much different State of the Union speech than any of his previous ones.  The President offered solutions, addressing the problems facing America today.  This was a Clinton moment as he moved away from his far left visions for this nation and came to the middle.

Many of the problems we have are because Congress is broken and both parties continually vote on issues good for their personal agenda or that of campaign contributors.  The United States can succeed with citizens working together with their representatives to pass legislation that is good for the Nation. This was one of the Presidents better speeches due to the fact he finally stopped placing blame on everyone but him for the State of the Union.

What he failed to mention was the trillions of dollars spent that we don’t have. What he failed to mention was the fact Congress and Harry Reid have not passed a budget in 1000 days which is required by law.  What he failed to mention was how we were going to pay for all these new and exciting programs to help lead us down this path of productivity.


Is Newt the one

December 3, 2011

With all that is happening in the Republican Party is Newt the one to lead our nation out of despair into prosperity?  The polls from Iowa show Newt with a strong lead over Mitt Romney. Just a few months ago Newt Gingrich had no money, no support, no chance of being in the top 7 let along the number one spot. Today he leads 28 -12 in the Insider/Advantage poll conducted by Newsmax.

Ron Paul came in second with 13 points, one point ahead of Romney. The Republican voters in Iowa are making a statement against Mitt at this time.  They don’t feel he is the candidate to beat President Obama.  Talking to voters across the nation, the one thing  they have in common, they don’t want a candidate that changes positions at every function he attends. That is what Mitt Romney represents to a large sect of voters.

In a Republican Forum held in Fairfax Virginia yesterday twelve individuals stated their views on all the candidates. Mitt was represented as a candidate that sways with the crowd and will say or do whatever the moment requires as a “Polished” candidate would.  This stigma will follow Romney until Gingrich loses momentum as the most intelligent candidate with the solutions needed to lead our nation back into prosperity.
