There are two things I learned from the 2012 elections, well more like 100 but I want to look at just two of them today.
First, the JFK mind set of “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country” is dead. The majority of voters in America only ask what they can get from their country and have no desire to help.
But more importantly I have learned that people love an optimist. As a conservative I have spent a lot of time pointing out the flaws in Keynesian theory or the progressive plans for the economy, with no real objections from others. Yes, I get bumper sticker slogans from some, but none offer real arguments that can prove the rationale behind the Keynesian model. Then I learned that most people do not care about what is wrong with the current government plans. I also pointed out the flaws of the policies of the Democrats in Washington and how they will lead to bigger problems down the road, and again I learned know one cares about what the Democrats are doing wrong.
What I learned was people want to hear positive ideas. They want people to say “this is how we can fix the problem”. So I propose that conservatives need to put forth detailed plans to fix the economy and fix the police state and then let others try and stop us.
I am calling out to any conservative representatives in Washington, no matter what party you are in, step forward with a real plan to fix a problem. Tell people how they will benefit from your solution, and how they will benefit immediately. We are in a “taker” civilization with a “microwave” patience threshold, we need to give them solutions and we need to tell them how they will benefit immediately.
Conservatives need to learn that the majority of Americans do not care about long term solutions that call for them to sacrifice today to create a solid foundation for tomorrow. They want to reap the benefits of a harvest before the crops are planted. We need to find a way to make them feel like we are harvesting when in reality we are planting the seeds needed to save out country.
Today I woke up and had a thought that brought a smile to my face. I will count this thought as the happiest part of the 2012 election cycle. So the thought that I had was that no matter what happens tomorrow, no matter who wins and will be in the President on January 20th is that in 4 years Barack Obama will not be our President.
I know, if Mitt Romney wins then Barry could run again, but I don’t think the Democrats would risk running a looser against the person who bear him. So in 4 years the Democrats would have to run a new candidate and that will show the direction that party plans to go.
If Barack Obama wins, Americans will wait out another 4 years of a bad economy knowing that a new President will take over when he is done. Americans will do all they can to succeed DESPITE the actions of Barack Obama, just like we have tried to do the last 4 years. We did all we could to better our lives, even though we knew he would take credit for any thing positive and push blame to someone else for anything negative, because Americans want to succeed.
Where is the outrage and calls for retribution based on blatant racism toward Marc Lamont Hill? When a person publishes a list that signals people out based on skin color, in a negative way, you would think the main stream media would be exposing this blatant example of racism.
Oh, I understand it now. Marc Lamont Hill is a black democrat. The hypocrisy no longer surprises me.
I will let a great American state this much better than I could:
This goes along with my last post and it is so disturbing that because it is true NO ONE WILL LISTEN.
Here we have the current Attorney General of the United States saying in a video from 1995, when he was Attorney General of Washington DC, telling us how he wants to go about “brainwashing” children.
How does he suggest the government “brainwash” American children?
The school system – everyday at every level (be repetitive)
Commercials – ad agencies
Community leaders like Jessie Jackson – community organizers
catchy hotlines (ie DARE, or “Just Say No”)
I’m sure Elle Macpherson would jump at the chance to help disarm Americans so it is easier for the socialists to take over.
If you are considering voting for Barrack Obama on November 2012, ask yourself this question… Do you trust him? Do you really think he has your best interests in mind when he puts people like Anita Dunn and Eric Holder in front of your children?
For several years now many conservatives have been warning that the agenda of the left will be to make Americans accept socialism, and another brick has been laid in the road to serfdom.
We first started to see their agenda when Presidential candidate Senator Hillary Clinton corrected the moderator of a debate when he asked her if she considered herself liberal. She responded, “I prefer the word progressive, which has a real American meaning, going back to the progressive era at the beginning of the 20th century.” After that the “progressives” started coming out of the wood work.
Then we had prominent MSNBC hosts and members of President Obama’s administration sing the praises of socialists like Saul Alinsky and Chairman Mao. Chris Matthews and Lawrence O’Donnell mention how current American policies are socialist. Of course we all remember this video of Anita Dunn praising Chairman Mao to high school students. So why does this matter?
Now there are those golden idols of the American mainstream that are working hard to make socialism cool. Americans have a sad obsession over anyone the media tells us is “famous” and we should want to be. So we now have a “super model” named Elle Macpherson has come out as a supporter of President Obama, which she said is her obvious choice because she is a socialist. So while American girls starve themselves to look like her they can also become socialists to think like her.
Watch your TVs and count the number of hollywood “stars” that will casually mention that they are socialists. Watch how many of these false idols will try and lead Americans down that road to serfdom. Then watch how many sheep like Americans will mindlessly follow. It is sad to watch your country die a slow agonizing death when the antidote to it’s disease is easy to apply. Socialism is the disease and the truth is the antidote.
Think for yourself and study the effects of socialism through out history, it does not work. It has only brought on destruction of any nation that tries to adopt it. Fight for freedom and protect the American way found in our constitution.
Today I am reviewing “The Coming Revolution: Signs from America’s Past That Signal Our Nation’s FutureBy Dr. Richard Lee”. Up front I will say that I have been a fan of several other books written by Dr Lee. He brings a strong biblical view to American history. So I was excited to read this book and see what Dr Lee had to say about current events.
From page one you get the sense that this book is a hand book for the modern conservative Tea Party movement that has swept across America since 2009. With the ever increasing national Debt and the increased feeling of being ignored by our leaders in Washington, the conservative majority in America has become active in our political process once again and this book shows how it parallels what happened during the first American Revolution.
I would recommend this book for anyone that would like to learn a little about American history, get a look into where the modern Tea Party movement gets it’s foundation and why many are worried that we are nearing a point that changing politicians may not be enough to right things. Thankfully it is not too late at this time to make change through our political process and this book explains why.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com <http://BookSneeze.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
“Barack Obama’s politics meant nothing to Samuel L. Jackson because the “Pulp Fiction” star only voted for the president for one reason and one reason only … because he’s black.
In an interview with Ebony magazine, Jackson explained, “I voted for Barack because he was black. ‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them … That’s American politics, pure and simple. [Obama’s] message didn’t mean [bleep] to me.”
Jackson then went on to drop the N-word several times when discussing Obama, telling the mag, “When it comes down to it, they wouldn’t have elected a [bleep]. Because, what’s a [bleep]? A [bleep] is scary. Obama ain’t scary at all. [Bleeps] don’t have beers at the White House. [Bleeps] don’t let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A [bleep] would have stopped the meeting right there and said, ‘Who the [bleep] said that?’ I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, ‘cuz he ain’t gotta worry about getting re-elected.”
Smacks of … Obama needs to Black it up.”
So, will the MSM give this story more then a passing comment?
On a side note, does it scare you that someone got elected based on race alone? I spoke to several people after the election in 2008 that told me that they voted for Obama based on wanting to be a part of history by electing the first “black” President. Mr Jackson is not a isolated case of racism in voting and I am scared that his racism will be the driving force behind a re-election of a President based only on his skin color.
