Ignorant American voter


If I were to ask any sensible person what the number one issue facing America is, I’d bet the answer would be spending and debt.

We know what’s wrong. We know what needs to be done. However, half of Americans who bothered voting rewarded America with another 4 years of this idiot we call President.

In his first 4 years, Obama ran the biggest deficits in US history, driving the biggest debt growth in US history. His spending and deficits as a percentage of GDP were staggering, truly Greece-like. He presided over the worst employment record since the Great Depression, and poverty surged to record levels under him.

In spite of all this, the dolts of America decided we need more of it. So then the question pulled from this is “Why?” Simple; voters have discovered that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury.

Game over.

A full year and a half after watching the left demonstrate their inherent inability to engage in critical thinking and to look beyond the campaign hyperbole of our now community organizer for president, we are now starting to see their inability to stick to their own principles, flawed as they are.

We watched in amazement as the left, whipped into a froth by a national media which has resembled Pravda or Tass for for some time, rushed like lemmings to the voting booths to elect a shallow orator into the most powerful position on the planet.

Now we watch in disgust as the Obama supporters come out of their drunken-like stupor and sober up to the truth the rest of us already know; socialism is repressive and it doesn’t work to provide the conditions needed for a successful society. It never has. It never will.

But the left demonstrate another inability. They can’t recognize truth when it stares them in the face. As young college students, their minds have been corrupted by the liberal and socialist ideologies which has been pumped into their soft, mushy heads by professors and other corrupted elements coming from the left-wing.

These legions of liberal minded graduates which some call “progressives” are now captains of industry. They are media moguls, teachers and politicians and for several decades they have been very busy subverting our institutions and core values of our country. It’s no wonder our country is in shambles today, a product of their “sick-think” which turns traditional values and thinking on its ear by their belief that our country is broken and only they can fix it. The A.C.L.U. and activist judges are their tools.

Think about this one; California’s fiscal crisis is the product of a generation of leadership produced by the ’60s. I there was any era which represented a wholesale rejection of traditional values, it would be the ’60s. Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi come from that generation. Collectively, they’ve made a shambles of California and now they’re in Washington, D.C. and they’re well on their way to applying their sick-think to make a wreck out of our nation.

The liberal loves to label the Republican Party as “the party of no” which suggests they are “the party of yes.” Based upon their lack of convictions when it comes to traditional values, patriotism and national sovereignty, one might agree. They have established a clear record of saying –

  • “yes” to same-sex marriages,
  • “yes” to open borders,
  • “yes” to granting constitutional rights to non-citizens, especially to our enemies,
  • “yes” to tax policies creating economic uncertainty for businesses and denying economic freedom of consumers all of which lead to stagnant economic conditions and double digit unemployment rates,
  • “yes” to spending policies creating debt levels which threatens our national security,
  • “yes” to granting illegal immigrants the right to vote, especially when it benefits the Democrat party,
  • “yes” to a national media which advances their agenda
  • “yes” to emaciating our military
  • “yes” to large government
  • “yes” to policies reflecting those of socialism i.e. nationalizing large corporations and majority ownership
  • “yes” to allowing heads of foreign states the opportunity to address congress and then giving them standing ovations when they speak about how wrong we are to want to preserve our sovereignty by incarcerating and deporting immigrants who have come into our country illegally,
  • “yes” to blaming Republicans and conservatives alike for the affects of their failed policies administered by their own, such as Barney Franks, Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and who clearly don’t give a rat’s ass about the will of the people or democratic process,

Clearly, this list could go on for a long time, but the above items serve to illustrate the destructive characteristics of their belief systems which they embed into their policies and laws, all of which conservatives and those in the Republican party disagree with, leaving them labeled as belonging to “the party of no”.

However, it’s easy to see those of the left haven’t got a clue about what it means to do the right thing for our country, which is to say those on the right actually belong to “the party of know”.

Recently I had a “blog-conversation” with an East coast liberal about a somewhat famous video which focuses upon the words spoken by a very excited woman after she attended an Obama-Biden campaign rally.

The conversation lead to a friendly disagreement about what she says, i.e. her words versus what she actually meant; that her words are an allegory. The conversation lead to the idea that depending upon your political polarity, the viewer’s interpretation of those words may even reveal that polarity, which in turn advances the idea that based upon some pre-established wiring of the brain, conservatives are predisposed to hear one thing while liberals hear another.

I contend it isn’t that complicated.

Those of a conservative leaning hear this:

“I’m not gonna have to worry about putting gas in my car or paying my mortgage.”

which is to say her words are to be taken literally.

Those of a liberal mindset hear this:

“Obama will lower taxes and make it easier for her to pay her bills.”

Here is the video containing the woman’s statement.

The argument from the conservative side

To build the case about why her her words are to be taken literally, we look at the history of Obama’s campaign and the many promises Obama made along the way.

It’s no news that Obama frequently spoke about his intent to redistribute wealth. It was a message planted firmly in the heads of many, including the woman in the video above. It’s because of these messages that she mistakenly believes she and others like her will be “taken care of” through Obama’s social programs.

For example, Obama’s pledge to cut taxes for 95 percent of Americans, while raising taxes on the tiny fraction who earn more than $250,000 is known as “redistribution of wealth” and is understood by most thinking Americans as “stealing from the rich and giving to the poor”. Revealing a socialist mentality, Obama says it’s simply being “neighborly”. Obama explains this to Bill O’Reilly on September 8, 2008.

If I am sitting pretty and you’ve got a waitress who is making minimum wage plus tips, and I can afford it and she can’t, what’s the big deal for me to say, I’m going to pay a little bit more? That’s neighborliness. – Barack Obama, Sept. 8, Fox News interview with Bill O’Reilly

Obama further reinforced the notion of great social change, of “flipping around” the long established social order when he said,

My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join me as we try to change it. – Barack Obama

Since his inauguration, we have had a taste of what he had in mind. We’ve seen the Cash-for-Clunkers program and other spending programs which are supposed to help the economy. So far, they aren’t.

We have heard Obama’s message about the potential for success of little people being minimized and oppressed by big, bad business.

This is the moment when we must build on the wealth that open markets have created, and share its benefits more equitably. Trade has been a cornerstone of our growth and global development. But we will not be able to sustain this growth if it favors the few, and not the many. – Barack Obama

With a carefully established foundation of expectations firmly laid down by Obama, it is not a stretch to understand how it is possible for the woman to believe in what Obama is saying and therefore, enable the listener to take the woman’s statement literally. Clearly, the woman genuinely believes in Obama’s intent of moving money out of the Treasury and into the hands of the “little people”.

As a reality update, judging by the looming tax increases we’re staring at to pay for a bunch of social programs which will compromise America’s future and oppress us even more, I’m sure that lady has already received that rude slap in the face that she “ain’t gettin’ nothin’”.

I wonder how excited she is now. No matter.

To underscore further about how the woman gets her ideas, take a look at the video below. It was made by a very frustrated guy after Obama’s inauguration and during the early phases of the mortgage crisis. The guy has just heard about Obama’s plan to bail out the homeowners who can’t pay their mortgages. This speaks directly to the point of the woman in the video who states,

“I’m not gonna have to worry about putting gas in my car or paying my mortgage.”

“We gonna flip it around. We’re not gonna have to pay no bills”

From the left, or perhaps from some who appear to be on the left, who parody the left’s mindset see it in a similar light. It’s a skit, but it serves to underline the message planted into the heads of those who believe in entitlements put there by Obama.

Conclusion

After review of the history of Obama’s campaign promises and his careful explanations about his policy beliefs it is easy to see how the woman spoke the words she did. It is also easy to believe she meant what she said.

What do you say?

I’d like to ask those who voted for Obama, those who should have done their homework, checked his background, pondered upon his accomplishments, wondered about who influenced him during his formative years, if they had their head up their *** when they pulled the voting lever.

How could anyone in their right mind vote for a man long influenced by Muslim thinking, seditious and antisemitic reverends, Marxist/Leninist professors, a co-founder of the Weather Underground who bombed public buildings and this guy, Van Jones, an avowed communist?

Van Jones holds the title of Special Adviser for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. He was appointed by the Obama administration March 2009.

Background:

* Rose from the Oakland, Calif., grassroots organizing scene to become a leader in the national movement to spur the green economy.
* Started his career as a prison-reform advocate in Oakland lobbying for reform of the juvenile justice system and youth-violence prevention programs.
* Co-founded a socialist collective, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, in 1994, which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia. The group protested police brutality.
* Co-founded the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights in 1996 and Color of Change in 2005, which includes Bay Area Police Watch, a group devoted to “protect(ing) the community from police misconduct.”
* Founded Green For All, an organization focused on creating green jobs in impoverished areas.
* Published New York Times bestseller, “The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems,” in October 2008.
* Has law degree from Yale University.
* Worked on the Green Jobs Act in 2007 with then-Rep. Hilda Solis, D-Calif., who co-sponsored the bill in the House.
* Was arrested in San Francisco in 1992 after a protest march that followed the acquittal of police officers in the Rodney King beating. Jones was working with the Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights in San Francisco.
* Was arrested in the 1999 Seattle protests against the World Trade Organization

Until Americans wake up and take their voting responsibilities seriously, we will continue to get clowns like Jones and other destroyers of the constitution. To that group, Obama certainly belongs.

Others who certainly belong are Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Henry Waxman, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Maxine Waters, Barbara Boxer, Tom Daschel, Rahm Emanuel, et. al. They are leading this country to ruin with their mindless, out-of-control and insane spending philosophies.

“Redistribution of wealth” my butt. This is trickle up poverty given to us by tax-evading hacks who surround an inexperienced and wild-eyed community organizer.

I want my America back and I want it back now.

Obama administration officials, fearing a battle with Congress that could stall plans to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, are crafting language for an executive order that would reassert presidential authority to incarcerate terrorism suspects indefinitely, according to three senior government officials with knowledge of White House deliberations.

Such an order would embrace claims by former president George W. Bush that certain people can be detained without trial for long periods under the laws of war.

There are lessons here for all who are quick to criticize America’s policies. First, too often we do not know about the underlying reasons which serve to form many of America’s policies. Second, we often fail to appreciate the demands of leadership while in the pursuit of doing what is best for America. Third, we should think more about the problem and ask ourselves what we would do when faced with the hard decisions. This act alone will cause the critic to read more.

The Bush administration, like them or not, understood the forces in this world which are collectively acting to literally destroy America. Believe it or not, but if you don’t then you are part of the problem.

Mr. Obama is now getting a bitter taste of the realities of the world. For America’s sake, I hope he drinks long and hard.

Jews aren’t the only segment of American society concerned about Barack Obama and his apparent willingness to throw Israel under the bus. This American is concerned that after Israel, he may throw America under that same bus.

I rest at night (albeit lightly) only because I gain a little bit of peace from the fact I did not vote for Barack Obama. My reasons for not voting for him comes more from personal efforts to do a little bit of research about him during the early days of his campaign and less from sound-bites provided by TV and radio. This research, coupled with a willingness to let the facts speak for themselves allowed me to assess his character and values as many know them to be today – only after the election.

My findings allowed me to see him as the socialist many are only now calling him. I saw a man whose character and values were formed and influenced by a 20+ year association with the Rev. Wright, an obvious racist and anti-Semitic, along with Bill Ayers and others of his ilk who harbor anti-American sentiment.

His background and early upbringing have given me cause to suspect his allegiance to America. This has since become painfully clear after hearing his recent speeches given abroad.

His experience with and knowledge of fiscal matters is showing to be abundantly weak. The motley collection comprising his cabinet have roots in Chicago politics and are tainted by the same. There have been jokes made of the fact that some members of his cabinet avoided paying taxes only to have them miraculously paid once they had been selected for the cabinet position. This has been drolly described as Obama’s earliest efforts in fiscal responsibility. To date, it’s been his best shot at it.

I could go on describing the weaknesses of this president including his naivete on foreign matters which will undoubtedly serve to be dangerous for America, but I will instead point to a missed opportunity for a great op-ed piece which can be read here. http://www.afa.net/youscareme.asp

In the end, it should be clear that we can never take our awesome responsibility to vote lightly; that our vote carries with it supreme consequences. It should also be clear that we have repeated history here.

We have rushed headlong for change, anxious to distance ourselves from a president who guided America out from the shadows of the events of September 11, 2001, only to be placed under a darker shadow of fiscal disaster for the nation.

One only has to look back upon the Ford-Carter election of 1976 and to reflect upon the psyche of America in the wake of Watergate to learn we have missed yet another opportunity to prevent history from repeating itself.

Live and learn can’t even be applied.

I know that $100 million dollars is a lot of money, but when you compare that against the pile it came from, it is a mere pittance.

Obama's idea of saving.

So which should make me the most angry about this? Is it the fact that Obama did not try to save us from a mountain of debt by taking a bigger budget cut? Or, should I be angry at the fact that I’m expected to be satisfied and grateful with this symbolic effort to reduce the size of the colossal budget, and in so doing, realizing that I and every other thinking American are begin played as an idiot.
