Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Who the Hell Does Obama Think He Is?

Now Obama has violated the Constitution  one too many ways.  First he states that he disagrees with immigration laws and will not enforce current laws duly passed by Congress (ICE employees are currently suing the administration over this violation of law, a violation of the constitution and the separation of powers).  Then he offends his own executive branch by going on a tirade of several nasty speeches blaming the Republicans for the upcoming sequestration, stating that this ridiculous law (that was Obama's idea in the first place and allowed him to set the Republicans up as the fall guys long ago) will bring the nation to a stand-still because our over-spending government will be denied four percent of the 8 percent annual increase in budget planned for 2013.

Now our idiot president has violated the Judicial branch of government by releasing hundreds of duly processed, tried and convicted prisoners from jail.  And don't listen to any of the lying liberal crap about these releases being done by career department employees who were concerned about the draconian budget cuts the evil Republicans are about to impose on the administration, and that Obama knew nothing about the releases.  This action is a direct violation of the Constitution, Obama knew all about it and approved it, and this fool man must be impeached and convicted of this most serious act and be removed from office before he denies all Americans our liberties under the Constitution and finally establishes himself as the perpetual ruler of the nation.

Biden may be a stupid man and will absolutely be a terrible next president, but Obama is an evil, dangerous one.  It appears Obama is going mental with his lust for power and he must be removed from office before he completely disintegrates.

Our Lying, Self-Serving Politicians

If you will recall the last time a president tried to permit American citizens to divert some of their Social Security deductions into a self-directed IRA and halt the poor investment that Social Security has become, you'll remember that the president was George Bush and you'll also recall the cat-calls and insults that his detractors hit him with, claiming that private retirement accounts were risky, that market and stock market swings could cause a loss of funds and there may not be enough money in private accounts when retirement money was needed, and finally concluding that if you didn't have money safely "invested" with and by the government through Social Security you were likely to end up broke and in poverty.  The amusing thing is that the government is broke and impoverished and stocks and bonds are doing quite well, thank you.  So who was right; Bush or his oh-so-smart detractors?

So now Bush's critics have decided they need some of our private IRA money to help bail out our over-spending, broke government, and they have devised several plans to take all of this tax-deferred retirement money away from its rightful owners, of course on the grounds that the people who have value and wealth in the IRAs are too stupid to know how to handle the money they've accumulated, and the government ruling class who has spent and borrowed America into bankruptcy knows best how to use the trillions of dollars in the private accounts.

By trying to get to our private retirement accounts the government is admitting that Social Security is a retirement account failure and that Bush was right when he proposed that the best retirement plan for individuals and families is private accounts with real value to them, not a hollow government promise.  And now they are going to take away the accounts of intelligent, thoughtful people and dump us on a welfare retirement program that will allow us only a subsistence level allowance.  And when the money from these IRA/401(k) accounts is dumped into the rat-hole of government spending, there will be no real money, earned through real profit-and-loss companies left to soak, the government will in fact then own the corporations of America and all hope to get our economy revived and back to sanity again will be lost and the futures of our children and grandchildren will be at enormous risk.

But of course our paternalistic government is only planning this takeover out of a concern for our future welfare and out of a sense of fairness for those who were unlucky enough, or too lazy, to have a good job they could work at for 30 or 40 years that would enable them to develop a nice retirement plan for themselves.  Just watch these liberal fools start the class-warfare crap they have been developing into an art form these last 4 years, and watch as they raise resentment against all of us who have worked, paid our taxes, served in the military, raised families, put our children through school, done without fancy living so we could save and invest our money in anticipation of a retirement that would not include Social Security (which has been heading toward bankruptcy for 30 years), and start calling us racists and hate mongers for wanting to keep our own money.

However, the real reason politicians ever wanted Social Security funds flowing to government at all is because the inflow of these funds far exceeded what Social Security was paying out to retirees, and now that government revenues are down (not enough people employed any longer paying FICA taxes) and with retirement age now hitting an increasing number of American citizens, there is no more excess Social Security money to spend on Santa Clause-like, give-away, vote-getting projects, so now they're after the only remaining pile of wealth left in America: stocks and bonds in retirement accounts and the value  of the companies these investments represent.  If the government gets our retirement accounts, our nation is certainly doomed.

Obama's Policies Prove The Popular Definition Of Insanity

The popular urban definition of insanity is trying the same dumb thing over and over and expecting a different outcome each time.  Our Barry believes that raising taxes makes a more prosperous nation, even though our economy takes a negative hit with each increase in taxes that he imposes.  The ignorant Nancy Pelosi even believes that welfare recipients contribute more to the prosperity of the nation than working men and women buying the things they want and need and paying reasonable taxes as good citizens.  So Pelosi seeks more people to barely survive on welfare and become subservient to and dependent on big government, while the nation nose-dives to destruction.

Barry also believes that giving money to alternative energy companies that are unable to make a profit from their products (Solyndra for example) will convince the nation to use wind and solar power and become less dependent on oil and coal as sources of energy, and he's wasted tens of billions of dollars on these idiot ideas, which have all failed.

Some of Obama's repetitive actions that only cause more pain and suffering for the nation are repeated Quantitative Easings, repeated "investments in infrastructure", spending more on education as the quality of education declines, repeated verbal attacks on Republicans who we know don't deserve such attacks because they are too cowardly to have done anything that could possibly warrant a dressing down.  And with an approaching sequester or a fiscal cliff on the horizon, even more attacks on Republicans for not supporting repeated demands for increased taxes and for the Republicans' lack of "fairness" and resistance to compromise.  With Obama it's always something, and it's always the same:  He's just trying to protect the poor and the jobless and the Republicans are the enemy of all Americans.

But when one realizes that Obama's repeated measures (more taxes, more spending, more criticism of the opposition) only hurt the nation instead of helping it, any thinking person would understand that Obama's attacks are not intended to benefit the country, but are meant to cause the harm that they are actually causing.  Obama is evil and is intent on the destruction of America. 

When will this great nation realize the idiocy of the Obama administration and get rid of this fool man so we can get back to living free lives and creating more prosperity for ourselves and our families?

Government Is Nearly Always The Problem

When considering where to place the blame for an impoverished society one should recall the classic examples of East and West Germany and North and South Korea.  In both instances the free, capitalist side was prosperous and the government-controlled, enslaved side lived terrible, frightened, hungry and cold existences.  Both sides of the national boundries were populated by the same people, often the same families divided by chance between free and controlled governments.  So why the prosperity of one and the want and hunger of the other?

Government is the difference!

The government that leaves people alone  to seek their own lives and happiness and allows them to establish businesses, work where it pleases them to work, to buy the products they want to buy, to eat the food they want to eat, rather than have the government approve the product purchases and to edict the food they are allowed to eat, creates the happiest and most prosperous society in which to live.  That's part of the reason we have such an immigration problem in America today: people fed up with their own corrupt, controlling governments in their native countries come here to have a better chance to have some prosperity and a better life for their children.

So now consider the United States at present and compare it with what the situation was ten years ago:

Ten years ago we had a national debt that was large but manageable.  Today there is no end in sight to the borrowing and spending of our foolish government.  And Obama insists that there is no spending problem.

Ten years ago the nation was happy with its healthcare.  Today government is still trying to sell the destruction of our healthcare system to us and shove it down our throats, even though we already see the poorer care we are getting at the same time that the costs and government regulations and control are increasing dramatically.

Ten years ago gasoline cost half what it costs today, and even though our nation has untapped reserves of oil, gas and coal that would make us independent of foreign sources and could reduce the cost of transportation and home heating for all Americans, the Obama administration will not permit us to use the domestic reserves.

Ten years ago the price of corn was reasonable.  Today, at government edict, we use corn as a fuel, not solely for food, which makes food more expensive for poor families and causes hunger and desperation around the world  because of the environmentally-vacant, morally bankrupt use of a valuable food as a fuel additive.

Ten years ago our electric utilities were planning for the growth of their electric-generating plants in anticipation of population growth and to cover the expansion of businesses and the resulting increase in electricity demand.  Today, electric utilities are being shut down by the unbelievable mountain of regulations coming from the Obama administration, and the future of the nation is seriously in doubt since fewer electricity plants are likely to cause brown-outs or even black-outs, and if businesses ever begin to recover from the punishment they are getting from Obama's heathcare and other regulations, there may not be sufficient  electric power available for the businesses to grow and expand.

And probably most important is the defense of the nation in this very dangerous age of increasingly unstable governments developing nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them.  The Obama administration is intent on reducing our military prowess and making our military forces less able to defend the nation.

But the United States doesn't need to think very long about Germany and Korea to find the problem with America today.  Just compare ten years ago with your life and expectations today and you'll see that the present problem is big government under Obama.

Unconstitutional, overspending, regulation-crazy, environmentally-insane, arrogant government is intentionally destroying this great nation, and patriots must band together and convince Republicans in Washington to start reducing the destruction NOW, and start impeachment proceedings against Obama for his various unconstitutional acts immediately, from ignoring the attack on our citizens in Banghazi and going to bed while Americans were tortured and killed, to allowing Fast and Furious to sell guns to bad guys who killed a border agent, to not obeying immigration law already on the books and suing Arizona for trying to do so.

Comparing Mesothelioma And Exxon Valdez To Benghazi

When we consider the treatment of the mistakes of private industry and the mistakes of government, we see a wide gap in where blame and punishment are placed.

In the case of private, non-government problems like Exxon Valdez or the current Mesothelioma ads on TV, liberals want dramatic punishment or financial ruin to befall the companies involved.  Billions of dollars in payment are demanded and imprisonment for the VPs and CEO are sought.

But when government causes death or injury, as with the over-pressurized automobile dashboard air bags or memos that the Secretary of State (Hillary Clinton) should have seen, or at least have heard about, but didn't, and the ignorance of which resulted in the deaths of four Americans she was directly responsible for, we get tears and childish excuses such as "what difference at this point does it make" from Hillary, who wants to avoid any personal responsibility for the suffering and deaths.

But the results of private and government mistakes and errors are not equal in their outcome.  When industry makes mistakes the damage is usually localized and controllable (oil spills and the Bopal explosion), but when government makes mistakes the tragedy is wide-spread and catastrophic (for example, our current economic depression and joblessness, children not being educated in the schools government provides, the sub-prime housing crash, and the over-spending and over-borrowing, radical Obama administration which is planning the gutting of our national defense forces) it impacts the entire nation for a very long time and perhaps damages our entire society forever.  Government adversely impacts the lives and liberties of the entire nation, not just a neighborhood or a region.

That's why government officials, like the incompetent Hillary or Obama, with all their strutting and big-shot preening and the fawning love they get from the press, must be identified and punished for their bad policies and actions.  What they do can destroy our nation and they must be  stopped and replaced with intelligent, reasonable people, not the ambitious, arrogant fools running our nation today.

Obama's Failed 3AM Benghazi Call: Four Americans Died

Leon Panetta's recent statement, during a Senate hearing, that Obama did not get involved and provide any leadership or follow-up, even though he had specific knowledge of the Benghazi consulate attack and knew violence was being brought on this outpost, makes our spineless President into the worst sort of  incompetent non-leader our nation has ever seen.  He failed his legendary 3AM phone call and got Americans killed as a result.

Obama dropped the ball and went to bed (or was he snorting or drinking himself to sleep?) and four Americans died.  This man is pure evil and incompetent and must be removed from office.  This fool man is going to get many more Americans killed, military and civilian, if he is not removed from office immediately.

And we now know that not only did Obama coldly turn his back on the situation, but his Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State also did nothing, and didn't even speak with each other or make any attempt to get critically needed help to the Americans stranded in Benghazi.  The Obama administration is a pack of criminals for their lack of attention to the Benghazi event.  Who would ever have believed that an American Commander in Chief would coldly turn his back on Americans serving abroad, that he had personally put in harms way?

And then, to add insult to injury, we had to see Obama and Hillary laughing and yucking it up on the CBS 60 Minutes interview, gazing into each other's eyes and touching each other and completely ignoring their lack of action that got four Americans killed.  This was a complete disgrace.  The entire Obama administration is a disgrace!
