Anyone Is Better Than What We Have Now!

April 12, 2011

Yes folks, “Anyone is better than what we have now”  is the response I am receiving from individuals all across this great land we call America. With the 2012 election cycle moving into gear many individuals are dissatisfied with the President and his policies.

Since Obama has been elected our country has spiraled out of control with expansive increases in government spending, the apology tour and the continuation of wars in the Middle East of which he campaign to stop the wars over there not extenuate them with complacency.

Remember he received a Noble Peace Prize for his prolific thoughts on a war free world or just the fact that those on the panel that hands out these prizes hated Bush so much they just wanted to show him a thing or two about just how powerful they were. Thus a million dollar bounty just for thinking about peace.

Now two years later we have amassed 5 trillion more dollars in debt with a 4 trillion-dollar budget being proposed by the White House.  I don’t want to beat this thing to death but I have to say we borrow 43 cents out of every dollar we spend so the individuals across the country want someone new that will reduce the spending and size of the bureaucracy.


Power Starts With You!

March 8, 2011

As we travel across the country discussing the issues that affect all citizens we run across one common statement from most individuals. Most citizens believe the government has too much power and they would be correct. The government has too much power because we allowed the power to move away from the States and the citizens as the years rolled by.

So today we have campaigns gearing up for elections across the nation once again. Whether for local, state, or federal everyone will be telling the American people what they believe needs to be done in order to win their campaigns. We will once again hear candidates on stump tours touting how they hear your voices and will be their to serve you. They will talk about the issues, some will have solutions while others will just blast their challengers.

But one thing is clear the American people need to understand in today’s environment, the power starts with you!  That is right, the power starts with you when you go to the meetings, the rallies and the town halls to listen to those you will choose to elect. If they have the message which reflex your values and principles they have a chance to be your voice. If not, they need to find a new vocation.

The time is here as we travel a new path toward history in these United States of America for all citizens to use their power to elect representatives that will work for you, that will work for what you believe in, that will take your power to the office they win and vote for your voice.  Don’t let politics as usual  continue to erode the quality of life here in America as it has for the past 100 years.

Speak up as you listen to candidates and ask them the hard questions that you want to know.  Speak out and have your voice heard by using your power to be heard by those who want your vote.  Remember the Power Starts With You and the other way around.


Our Voices Have Been Heard

November 3, 2010

Tonight has been a historical night in the elections across the nation.  The voices of the people have been heard and now those who have been elected must follow their campaign promises or we will be in the same boat with the next election cycle.

Marco Rubio wins big in Florida, Rand Paul in Kentucky and Halley in South Carolina.  All with one message to the citizens of this great nation, bring fiscal responsiblity back to the Halls of Congress. They will be held to a higher standard than those who preceded them.  They have a crisis in their sights that must be addressed with sleeves rolled up going at it without reservation to regain control of our economy, our out of control spending and our out of touch elected officials.

The citizens have pushed for a new mandate against the past two years of the Obama program which has eroded the quality of living in our households.  There are so many issues they have to face to cut the federal spending, the size of the federal government and the back room deals that cost taxpayers billions of dollars in wasteful programs.

We now are in a phase of a new beginning for all candidates in all campaigns in all elected offices from local, county, state and federal.

Good luck to those who succeeded in winning their respective races and congratulations to those who campaigned to have their voices heard and came in a close second.  We are a great nation because of these freedoms our military continually fight for both here and abroad.


This Day We Will Remember

November 2, 2010

Okay we talked about this day for the past year now and it is finally upon us, the mid-term elections.   With these elections all across the country we will either make history or be history. This day we will remember as we remember our nations past struggles.

Today I was engaged in a discussion about the condition of our nation. The individual stated that had we done nothing we would be far worst off than we are now speaking about the 787 billion dollar bailout money.  The discussion went on for 2o minutes about what transpired within Obama’s administration as he took over an economy that was losing 700 thousand jobs a month. Bailing out private companies that were ill managed and skimming off profits to pay millions in bonuses.

My argument was this: Had we taken half or three-quarters of that stimulus money and distributed it to the tax payers of this country instead of those businesses that were “Too big to fail” we would have alleviated the deep recession we are now in.

If each tax paying citizen of the nation would have received 200 thousand dollars in stimulus money I assure you they would have saved their homes, bought new cars and or replace furnishings  within days of receiving the check from our well oiled government.

I am not saying I agree with the government handing out money to anyone or anything, however since they were going to spend that money the taxpaying citizens should have received it so they could spend it how they deemed fit.

Most everyone I talked with about this proposal said they would have paid off their home and replaced their car with a new one that got better gas mileage. One one individual said they would hide the money and let their home be foreclosed on.

This of course didn’t happen because the tax paying citizens didn’t donate millions of dollars to the Obama campaign so he couldn’t just give it up to common everyday folks like you and I.  No, he had to arrange for SEIU and other entities that were close to him and his campaign to receive the billions of dollars in tarp money.

Now we have a chance to have our voices heard once again.  A vote that is a referendum on the direction our country travels.  Do we continue down the path that has eroded the quality of life here in America of every citizen who lives here?  Or, do we stand up and finally vote for those individuals that are not corrupted by the political parties as of yet with hopes they will remain true to their word to us.

This vote will be the change that many American’s so desperately are looking for. Not the change you can believe in rhetoric spewed out during the last campaign cycle.  The change will be for the people of this great nation to stand tall and request their representatives work for them.

Make sure you get out to vote and have your voice heard.


Heck vs Titus Debate

October 15, 2010

Let’s talk about the 3rd Congressional District seat up for grabs right now here in Nevada.  Titus is the incumbent and Heck is the challenger that would like to be sitting on the Hill come January.

Joe Heck is a doctor and military man who came to Nevada in 1990 with his wife and kids.  His stance is that we need to stop government intervention and work to address the issues now and not when they are at a crisis level as Congress now does.

Dina Titus was and educator for almost all her life.  She has been a political figure here in Nevada and now in Washington.  Her stance is that we must raise taxes or cut benefits to become solvent.  She is against illegal immigration and wants to secure the border before we can deal with those who crossed the border and now live in America illegally.

Titus responded to just about every statement that Heck made with some type of sting statement about flipping his position again and again and again.  Both Titus and Heck had a strong presence when speaking about the issues and I didn’t see a real clear winner here.

There was no knock out punch from either side. Both held their ground and pushed each other on their policies and votes over the years. Dina beat Joe up on the job issues and his statements about not being for any spending bills that would create jobs or incentivize business to invest in wind and solar energy.  Joe hit Dina with the voting record of Dina and the votes on Health Care, the Stimulus and an assortment of others.

Dina responded to questions about the cap and trade bill with no new taxes will be involved when that passes. We won’t be dependent on foreign oil.  Joe came back with the increases each individual will end up paying which will be close to $1,700.00 per family.  Dina disputed that stating no increase will happen.

The bickering back and forth wore me out. Both candidates had interesting statements of fact and fiction, you decide.  Joe Heck asked a question toward the end of the debate about how Dina would handle a student who lied or cheated on an exam refering to her ads that an organization deemed to be untrue.  Dina went off on Heck and stated what are you going to tell you constituents about you switching positions on every issue. She went off with three or four more what are you statements that were blistering.

If you are a Democrat Dina won hands down.  If you’re a Republican than Joe won with a landslide. Again you be the judge.

Listen to the debate on-line and then when you head out to the polls you can have your voice heard through your vote. Don’t let anyone every tell you that your vote doesn’t count because it does. Read my lips, “Your vote counts!” Make it happen by getting out to the polls and vote your conscience. We can make a difference with one vote, one voice.
