Conservatives look in the Mirror

English: Seal of the President of the United S...

 

Americans have re-elected a President presiding over 7.9% unemployment and GDP growth below 2%. These are by far the worst economic numbers overcome by a President winning re-election since Franklin Roosevelt in 1936.

It’s not too difficult to figure how this happened.

 

There are currently 47-million Americans on food stamps. Just how many of them voted for Mitt Romney? Seriously…can you really expect a dog to bite the hand that feeds it? President Obama received a total of 58-million votes. And if 95% of food stamp recipients voted for him then all he would have needed was 12-million non-food stamp recipients to vote his way to overcome Romney’s total. Obama has created this dependency. It’s not likely they’ll vote against the person who keeps giving them their candy.

 

In spite of the Federal Government-gives-candy-advantage Obama held; Romney still could have won this election had Conservatives not self-destructed. The most obvious failing comes from the selfish, masturbatory Libertarian voters who sent nearly 1.2-million votes to Gary Johnson.

Add in the 0.1-1.4% (depending on the state) of “voters” who wasted their vote on the Constitution Party candidate and you have just enough Conservative voters to match Obama in the popular vote. There’s no doubt in my mind that had this 1-2% of voters not bashed Romney as equally and vociferously as they did Obama over the course of the past year we’d be celebrating a Romney victory this morning. Florida is still too close to call and Virginia, Ohio and Colorado went to Obama by less than 2%. That’s the whole ball game.

 

What troubles me now and did so throughout the campaign is the foolish, bigoted, and hateful comments about Obama and his supporters that continuously poured from Conservative corners. The “birther” issue was and remains idiotic. And it was clearly racist. What I never understood was the point of it. Obama could have been born on Mars. Because his Mom was an American citizen so was he. The end result was the extreme side of Conservative politics continually gave Liberals all the ammunition they needed to once again paint those with our point of view as angry, mean, and bigoted.

 

Since the 1930s more Americans have identified themselves as Democrats than Republicans. And over the past 20 years more and more Americans are identifying themselves as independent. Overall, it’s roughly 1/3 Democrats, Republicans and independents. Polls show Romney won independents. But he didn’t win Democrats, not enough of them anyway. If scary, angry, bigoted Conservatives (what few of them there are) scare-off even a small percentage of independents and all Democrats,  Republicans don’t have a chance…not in 2012, and certainly not going forward as our country increasingly becomes less white and more brown.

 

Karl Rove correctly points out that there is no reason Republicans shouldn’t enjoy more support from this countries Hispanics. Generally speaking they are more religious and focused on family values than the overall populous. With such values they should vote for the GOP. But they don’t. Yesterday and in 2008 they vote close to 70% for Democrats. Why is that? Only one reason: too many Republicans allow  hateful xenophobic attitudes to exist within our own political discourse without justly shouting them down. And I for one am sick of it.

 

It makes me mad as hell to have Liberals who don’t know me constantly assume I’m a bigot. It happens all the time. And it diminishes me in the eyes of my kids, my black kids. It’s important that my values are passed on to my kids so that they may pass them on to their kids, etc etc. But like all young people my kids are influenced not only by me but by what they see and hear in society. And if I’m less trusted and less understood simply because I’m associated with people who espouse bigotry I’m naturally going to be hurt in my efforts to stand as a good example to my children. I worry about this constantly.

 

Republicans have to bring people to the party and not repel them. With a country that is increasingly made up of people of color we’re going to have to see to it that we not only attract them but repel and reject the angry bigots. They don’t make-up a large percentage of Conservatives or Republicans. But they don’t need to in order to chase away any chance the party has of winning in the future.

 

God Bless America.

It’s your Money. Who Do You Want Spending it?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re less than a month away from choosing a President for the next four years. The photo above is clear and understandable and should make the choice easier.

Money generated for the Federal Government by taxes is YOUR money. It’s not the government’s money. So when our President spends it we want it spent in a manner consistent with our best interests. Lining the pockets of campaign contributors in failed business ventures is a record President Barack Obama cannot hide from. And it is sufficient, in and of itself, to cause you to vote against him.

But voting “against” anyone is often not motivation enough to participate in the process. So examining Mitt Romney and finding him worthy of your vote is important too. The banner posted here gives only a tiny sample of Romney’s great ability at running an organization as its head, or CEO, or President. And since its my money his record of investment is clearly more in line with the type of return I want.

I hope you’ll give fair consideration to this common sense message.

Democrats Scream RACISM! So What Else is New?

Mitt Romney - Caricature

Mitt Romney – Caricature

Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney is a former Governor in perhaps the most liberal state in the nation, Massachusetts. He’s also a former Pastor and long time volunteer in his church. He quit his highly lucrative position at a company he helped found, Bain Capital, in order to work for free, no salary, for the Salt Lake City Olympics. He did likewise as Massachusetts Governor. He took no salary. Mitt Romney also gave away all of his substantial inheritance following the death of his father; making Brigham Young University the recipient and establishing the George W. Romney Institute of Public Management.

In addition to all these and many more acts of kindness, generosity, and philanthropy Mitt Romney is also a racist! And he’s responsible for the death, some would say murder, of a woman in Missouri in 2006. Or so Democrats would have you believe.

The Democratic National Convention convenes today in North Carolina and leading into it was word from the blog-ous-fere that Mitt Romney has adopted a 1920s Ku Klux Klan slogan for his Presidential campaign slogan. They say Romney has on a couple of occasions uttered the words “Keep America American“, and that the phrase can be traced by at least two sources back to KKK recruiting material from the 1920s, and continually used up until 1950.

My first question is how does uttering ANY phrase “a couple of times” constitute adopting a slogan? The simple answer is it doesn’t. Romney’s campaign slogan adopted in April 2011 and used to this day is “Believe in America”. Furthermore, as pointed out in this snopes.com report

Romney has on a couple of occasions said “Keep America America”, not the KKK phrase.

The murder of the Missouri woman claim stems from a Pro-Obama television campaign ad that shows a hard-core democratic radical who’s manufacturing plant  was closed down by Bain Capital in approximately 2003, after Romney had left Bain. The closing of the plant caused the man to lose his health care coverage. His wife had cancer and died. Of course THAT would be Romney’s fault, according to Democrats. Well, as absurd as that conclusion is based on the commercials claims and inferences it gets worse when the facts are actually injected into this fairy tale. The woman actually HAD health insurance coverage through her own employment. She wasn’t diagnosed with cancer until 2004, after the closing of the plant. And she didn’t pass-away until 2006. And yet, Democrats felt comfortable inferring that Romney caused her death.

The silly season is no longer silly. It unbelievably stupid!

Jimmy the Idiot Boy

A Democratic idiot

Those who would seem to think a racist and a murderer could reside inside the same body as the man who’s documented and demonstrated acts of generosity exceed any Presidential candidate you’ve ever heard of in your lifetime have to remove their imbecile hats and return to Cluelessville.

Is it too much to ask for Democrats to quit believing that Republicans are so completely hateful? Considering at least half the nation is Republican or Conservative I have to wonder how such so-called human beings can function. Think about it Democrats, depending on where you live in this great country a minimum of 1-in-3 people you encounter are Republican or Conservative in their politics. Were they as hateful and evil as you and your party portray why is it that you don’t deliver a well-deserved karate chop to the larynx of every other person you pass on the street? How do you leave your house? Clearly if you are surrounded by such evil haters you would be fully justified in barricading yourself in a fortified home encircled by a moat and 20 foot smooth cement walls.

This is the crux of Democrat’s arguments. Republicans are not only wrong, they’re evil. And this is what we will hear coming out of North Carolina. We can thank our President Barack Obama for this hate filled rhetoric.

DOWNFALL OF THE "COMMUNITY ORGANIZER"

Save your breath Libs. I already know your retort to this blog. “Well, Republicans do the same thing!” First of all, no they don’t. No credible Republican or Republican campaign advertisement has now or in 2008 discussed the extremist views on Obama, the birther crap or socialist/communist conspiracy nonsense. Second, can we agree that accusing someone of organized racism and murder are quite worse than saying he’s being disingenuous about his place of birth and that his far-left liberal philosophy is in-fact socialist? I would hope the 2nd point would be inarguable. But then again, Democrats made the allegations; there’s no telling just how stupid they really are.

And Democrats need not take their insult out on me with angry words. I’d be much more impressed if you simply told all those who believe as you that such hateful, divisive claims of racism and evil were not worthy of the party of Kennedy, Truman, FDR, and Jefferson.

Why it Sucks to be Conservative!

I’ve always believed that being liberal is a lot like being a child whining at Mommy in the grocery store check out line, “Mommy can we get the giant Snickers? Mommy why can’t we get the comic book? Mommy that man’s getting ice cream. Why can’t we get ice cream?”

On the other hand Conservatives have to play Mommy. They have to be the adult.

In this video Bill Whittle explains better how being the mature adult Conservative really SUCKS!
