_ OK, I really need all of you on the Right; Conservatives, Republicans, and Conservative Libertarians – and even those on the Left weary of a rouge administration that has forced you to take a closer look at Republican presidential alternatives, to hear me out on a concern that has blossomed into its own school of thought.

A few will remember some of last year’s rhetoric which propelled social networking posts on “generic ballots” that showed how soundly a given Republican would defeat Obama in 2012.  My concern then was that so many on the Right were posting and referencing these polls with a certain cavalier disdain for the overall process.  This of course, was well over a year ago and it fueled an anti-Obama sentiment that rocked the 2010 election goals for the Left.  Clearly, Obama had been deemed a failure by the public and they sought to remove all Obama regime sympathizers from office.  Republicans, then predicted to make a mockery of an Obama re-election bid, were granted the votes to effect change in an administration that turned on the people.  The reality, like Obama, they too have now failed the American people.  The kicker is that they have failed the people for the EXACT SAME REASONS Obama failed!  The result?  Polls now show Obama soundly defeating the GOP “front runner.”

Here is an irony that discloses just how bad the republicans have performed in office since elected in 2010.  Just a few short months ago, higher and more influential leftist elements were calling for Obama’s acquiescence from the 2012 Democrat nomination.  Today, the best Republicans have to offer cannot compete with a President whose only battle is the coveted “Worst president in History” title.

How this happened

Well, you may remember some of my Facebook posts as well.  They basically stated, don’t get excited because these polls may not be so favorable when you replace a “generic Republican” with the face and name of a real and more typical Republican.  Not hard to figure out who was right.

It boils down to this; the 2010 newly elected Right never delivered on the fiscal prudence they were elected to implement.  You have to remember the 112th Congress’ first task was to pass a federal budget with sights set on cutting spending.  Delivered to the people was the EXACT OPPOSITE in the very worst way possible.  The budget never got passed and merely saw a series of extensions that directly resulted in MORE spending than the Democrat run 111th Congress ever dared to attempt.  Immediately, the Boehner led Right, capitulated on matters of spending and fiscal restraint as the Obama regime gained spending momentum.  Adding insult to injury, the Right then, after failing to pass the budget, allowed the Debt Ceiling to be increased while pulling a chapter from a Nazi/Communist Manifesto and allowed the creation of a Super Committee – THAT ALSO FAILED resulting in yet ANOTHER extension of spending increases now besting previous overspending levels that were racking up national debt at a rate of 100 billion dollars a month. (No need to mention the Obama Administration has now gone more than 900 days without finding the competence in which to pass a budget).  They did however, point out “cuts” in the spending in the latest extension; low income families have had their utility subsidies cut some 25 percent in the middle of an already harsh winter.  Yet today, there is still no true and fully implemented budget in place; to find one you must go back in time to the Bush Administration which built the American fiscal coffin preparing for a nation’s interment after a slow, agonizing death at the hands of gross federal over-spending and egregious fiscal irresponsibility.  So, ask yourself this; how has the Republican elected 112th Congress been of positive impact to the American people?  They haven’t!  And therein, the problem lies.

From the 2012 voter vantage point (especially for those on the Left), all that is seen is the Republican alternative to the Progressive led Obama Assault on Americanism is essentially more of the same. 

What’s worse, the American people have only seen Congress unite to increase future spending further economically imperiling America, and to mount a direct assault on constitutional rights in the form of a National Defense Act that specifically assails the American citizen.  As if that is not bad enough for the Right’s chances in 2012; the provisions within the Defense Act that drew so much criticism from Conservatives, Liberals, Republicans and Democrats alike – were written by the RIGHT, not the Left.  Once the detainee provisions of outrage were included into the Act, the Right, led by Sen. Lindsey Graham, the key architect of the detainee provisions, united with the Left to implement the Act against the people.

When all was said and done, two things happened.  First, Congress was bestowed with the worst disapproval in history making the 112th just that; “the worst in history.”  To the onlooker, this means the Republican solution is WORSE than the problem itself.  The second consequence is a bit more obvious; Romney, the GOP forced “front runner,” is already losing badly to the failure that is Obama.  It is hard to believe the Republican Party could possibly be more inept and dysfunctional than it is today.

Obama’s scandal ridden cronyism is now the lesser evil

Have things really gotten that bad?  Is the Republican interpretation of Americanism so distorted, the American people are more willing to surrender the U.S. Constitution to the Obama regime?   Is the lesser evil of submitting to full government control really a more promising voter prospect than allowing the Republican political elite to continue their current course of action?  Moreover, when will Americans begin to recognize “Republicanism” as the counter intuitive conservative political ideology that today’s Republican elite have turned it into?

Perhaps, it safe to say at this point in time, the Republican alternative to Progressive Liberal rule is just as bad – and in all honesty, now arguably worse, considering their highly ineffective and counter constitutional first year.  It is sad to imagine that the best the Republican Party has to offer has directly resulted in a worsening American condition.  But, it has.

Today, many are perplexed on how to approach the 2012 ballot.  Some Democrats are considering registering as Republicans in order to begin voting against Obama as early possible by using the Primaries to show their resolve to sever the head of the Progressive beast.  This is good, but these individuals are now desperately concerned that the damage caused by their previous votes for Obama will pale in comparison to voting for a Republican in 2012.  Ask yourself this, given the Republican impact in 2012; can you really blame their pessimism?  Personally, I cannot.

To me, their concerns are not only understandable, they are shared.  The GOP is now so far removed from both Conservative values and their constituents, the people, on all sides of the isle, can no longer relate to or trust them.  They [Republican political elite] represent a political interpretation that is best defined by the special interests they are currently in pursuit of – the people are thus inconsequential figures used only exclusively to move them in a position of power over their constituents.  This is what Obama has done and what the GOP is fostering in the likes of Romney, Perry and Gingrich.  While all are considerably different, all represent a willingness to move against the people as they pander to a problematic GOP that is increasingly supporting anti-constitutional concepts and constraints against American’s freedoms.

The reality

Republicans supporting Perry, Romney and Newt have just stopped reading this editorial because their echo chamber of “Republicans are just better and always right” is not being supported.  They have moved back to their “elect Newt” and “elect Perry” pages to convince themselves that the lies found there, trump the truth they have just read here.  They too are the problem.  When it is all said and done; their calls for a more constitutional America driven by fiscal prudence and individual freedom is mere lip service – deep within, they know these candidates will not deliver on these values.  What they see is only a given Republican replacing Obama.  To them, this will magically make America better even though the GOP’s best have proven, at a minimum, to be as bad as the Obama Administration.  They are calling for change in Congress and in America while fully supporting the system causing the problem by vesting in the likes of the now clearly faulted GOP political norm. 

The time has come to stop viewing the Right, in its current condition, as an end-all-be-all answer to the Obama conundrum.  Just because it is Republican, no longer makes it the best solution to a very complex and algorithmic problem.  Republican elite of today simply fail to make the cut.  Americans have settled for far too long – they are the result.

Unsubscribe from the American political norm

Thus, the school of thought is self-identifying in its simplicity.  Insist for both more and better when determining your allegiance to the worst our nation now has to offer.  The two party system has come full circle; it has divided a nation’s people to only unite in a bi-partisan elected class agenda against both its citizenry and the Constitution protecting the people from a freedom revoking government.  It is now no longer a matter of Right versus Left, but a sense of Americanism versus the federal government.  We must stop subscribing to the norm and force upon government the very conditions of the Document they have fought so hard to destroy.  While presidential selection drives the 2012 vote, no President can fully effect a sense of constitutionalism without a Congress willing to support it.

Here we have a U.S. Senate that brazenly attacked and defeated the Constitution with only FOUR Senators voting against it.  This should put into perspective the depth of America’s Congressional intent to harm that which is America.  All must go before any benefit for Americans can be found.

Voters want a statesman to deliver them from their past histories of irrational, nonsensical and apathetic voting habits.  Unfortunately, statesmen can only lead and effect change for patriots. In America today, there are simply far too few patriots willing to rebuke both the Progressive agenda to deliver America to a European-like state of social and economic failure and the Republican norm which is now markedly similar to the Leftist agenda killing American sovereignty.  Are you willing to subscribe to the school of thought of a patriot over the desire for a perception of an easier life under the thumb of an ever encroaching government now united against America herself? 

We need patriots, real patriots; not apathetic voters subscribing to the American political establishment that has formally deemed the U.S. Constitution as an Enemy of the State.

The 112th Congress is now officially classified as the worst Congress in measured history.  In my opinion, we cannot charge the 112th as the “worst ever” without fully acknowledging the same of the American voter who have delivered the 112th to existence.

_ The criticisms are just.  And it is not like one would really be exaggerating when saying, “Everyone hates Kim Kardashian.”  In fact, Kim is the fingernails on the Kardashian chalkboard of reality–satire TV.  She is a train wreck that happened upon the American people via self-exploitation of carnal explosion.  A trust fund, B-lister, pseudo-socialite propelled from the depth of irrelevance to the epitome of irrelevance by a “leaked” sex tape. 

They are pointed out for being a family whose only relevance is their lack thereof.  Yeah, I guess there is great truth to that as well.  Think about it, it is hard to be shallower, or more superficial than a Kardashian.

Aired was a quaint little story of the two spoiled youngest; they stole good old Bruce’s credit card.  To teach them a lesson, they were taken to a homeless shelter.  There, they learned how fortunate they were to be Kardashians; a lesson that hit home.  They spoke about how sad it was that an entire family lived in a space smaller than that of their individual bedrooms.  Warm fuzzies for everyone!  Though I am sure it comes as no surprise to anyone that the now “enlightened” Kardashian kids never went back to “help” the shelter exploited to help them.  Returning to the shelter would make the initial visit relevant – something that spanned beyond that of the family Kardashian.  The return to the shelter would have signified the moral acknowledgement of the old adage, “To whom much is given…”  That makes it real and real is not what the Kardishians’ are about; Kardashians’ are about… well, being Kardashian.

Their emasculated men in tow; a collective “nothing” self-condemned to a purpose in life defined only by how they impact a female Kardashian. Scott the alcoholic, battles on fighting his demons.  How his drinking impacts the Kardashian sisters is the focus; not the bigger picture of alcoholism itself.  It would seem that the Scott sub-story of relevance bringing awareness to coping successfully through the battle of chemical dependency is too real for the K family in that the impact would spawn a benefit to those beyond the realm of the internal Kardashian world.  It makes you wonder how impossibly selfish a family unit can get.

Issues that plague our modern world are only addressed when it is of benefit to them.  Kris Jenner (who even contemplated changing her name back to that of her both divorced and deceased Husband jealous that the daughters we getting more Kardashian attention) brought forth a female issue - because of course, bringing it forward landed her a spot as a company spokesperson.  So yeah, the kids got it honest.

For good reason, the criticism against family K is only growing in a world where the concern is directed at the other to keep the attention away from self.  Pleasure is found in the irrelevance of the family’s unintended satire of real life.  It is clearly understood that what happens with this family is of no consequence to anyone other than a Kardashian; and people like that.  People like the fact that the time spent watching the pseudo-drama unfold results in no thought provoking consequence.  It is almost as if the Kardashian clan usher in a state of suspended animation from reality itself at the hands of their own hyper-selfishness.

The problem is some find such irrelevance offensive.  They are outraged by the rhetorical question: How can anyone find value in a family that represents such superficial and selfish values?  Because they are offended by this, they have sought to have the Kardashians removed for none to watch.  The fact of the matter is E! is deeply vested in the nothingness represented by the Kardashian shows. One should consider that if K fans were short in number, Kardashian would not be the trademark it is today.  People enjoy the fact that talking about Kim’s mockery of a marriage means absolutely nothing them.  They know Kim is a walking relationship disaster and a whirlwind marriage followed by a hasty divorce, is anything but a shock.  As Kourtney said, “[Kim] is in love with being in love.”  A ten million dollar wedding earned her seventeen million.  A well designed prenup protected her “interest” in the event.  Many accuse Kris Humphries of coming up on Kim, but Kim clearly came up to the tune of seven million on him… but only after a “leak” proved who truly came [up] on who - which started the Kardashian legacy of irrelevance.

Kardashian is what it is because they are who they are.  Kardashian is irrelevant because the only aspects of life that are relevant to the Kardashians are issues that affect them.  They are a collective pool ascribed to a mindless selfishness of life that people enjoy out of its lack of real life consequence.  What you have to remember is that because all others are irrelevant to the Kardashians, they are equally irrelevant to all others.

Writing about politics found me; I never really sought it out.  It was the most dynamic, fluid, important and meaningful subject to cover.  Studying politics just made sense; writing on it just came naturally.  Unfortunately, to write, you must first self-educate - and studying politics reveals a truth that no one seems to really want to fully acknowledge, let alone accept  it.  Living in a world of political truth is a lonely place where all around are essentially lost to their self-insistence of denial.
 
To many, Barak Obama is a great president. Denial. Mitt Romney for others, represents a return to a better America.  Denial. Herman Cain is (somehow) the Tea Party favorite.  Denial. Americans, desperate to hide from political truth, use denial to provide themselves with a false sense of security in hopes a better future will magically blossom from blind hope - and the efforts of the more aware and more assertive American.  The truth is as obvious as it is a lonely reality.
 
Voters, both Democrat and Republican alike, have articulated the need for America to return to a nation led first by its constitution, and its politicians second.  It is felt that in order for America to prosper in the future, she must again become a
state which is more in keeping with the Framer’s intent.  Problem is, little more than articulating the need is being done.  Americans say they “want,” but do little to effect the change required to return to a more conservative state where individual freedoms, as prescribed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, can reign prevalent.
 
Bi-partisan contempt for constitutionalism
 
Americans live in a world where the most concrete aspects of constitutionalism are subjective at best. Freedom of speech, while the most widely recognized right, has more conditions and restrictions than ever before. The Right blames the Left for this, but
the Right was instrumental in the development of “free speech zones” that serve as designated [restricted] areas where speech of dissent of America’s course can be expressed “freely.”  Plainly stated, if American citizens wished to protest former President Bush while he was traveling, they could only do so in areas segregated from the President himself, his course of travel, and out of eyesight and earshot of the mainstream media. 
 
Americans have the right to bear arms; that much is distinctly clear.  Yet, Second Amendment rights narrowly survived the SCOTUS in a 5 - 4 vote. Conservative Justice’s ruled in favor of the clearly constitutional right to bear arms while all Liberal Justices voted against it. The Left’s anti-Constitution position grew so fierce local governments like Chicago implemented laws making the right of gun ownership so difficult it was impractical to own a gun and virtually impossible to meet the requirements
to purchase a hand held firearm – in direct defiance of once unquestionable Constitutional rights. 
 
Recently, President Obama has fallen under criticism for “not thanking God” in his giving of rightful thanks. This criticism is driven by the “non-secular” Right which has forgotten the right to not express religion is equaled only by the right to express it
freely. 

Every right granted unto the people through the Constitution and Bill of Rights is now subject to the interpretations of the nation’s controlling party.  Clarence Thomas has recently fallen under attack for this very reason. The weak, unorganized and ill-fated attack was a baneful attempt to remove the Conservative Justice and replace him with a Liberal Justice appointed by an increasingly progressive regime (likely, in attempt to shift the Conservative hold to a Liberal advantage prior to the SCOTUS hearing arguments on the constitutionalism of an increasingly unpopular Health Care Reform Law). 
 
Voter denial bests political truth; a snapshot 
 
The Republican Right refuses to acknowledge President Obama is not wrong for his lack of evoking God despite his glaringly obvious right to refrain from religious context; a right based upon the constitutionalism Republicans claim they want back. The Left, also calling for a return to constitutionalism, does not want to accept the fact Americans clearly and unquestionably have the right to bear arms.  Both contend they wish a return to a more constitutionally driven nation; neither make an effort to arrive at the fact that both sides only use the Constitution when it suits their needs and agenda at a given time.

 Presidential candidates of today represent this exact same set of shortcomings.  The Perry’s, Romney’s, Newt’s, Cain’s, Obama’s, and Clinton’s have all, with great detail and very overt expression, defied both the conditions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  In doing so, the Framer’s intent Americans to wish to return to is discarded as irrelevant, unnecessary, and meaningless; yet, these same Americans calling for a return to a better America support them. Disgraceful.
 
The truth behind the denial
 
It was not until a recent dialog that I realized my own frustrations with Americans support of the un-American President and the un-American Presidential Candidates was out of their own foolish self-denial of political truth.  Though, for the life of me, I cannot figure out why any sane American would support President Obama, but they are free to do so.  The last thing they actually want is a return to constitutionalism. (Hell, they are not reading this anyway – in that Team Obama has not directed them to do so).  Those whom support this laughably incompetent, anti-constitution embracing field of the Presidential Candidates only see them as a means to and end with no President Obama - while none of the aforementioned candidates and political figures are even remotely capable of delivering America to a better place, let alone an America where constitutionalism is relevant. This is to say very directly; if a person supports anyone other than Ron Paul, they do not wish to return America to a nation in which the Constitution governs the land over political agendas. Sorry, but that is the truth and even the most deeply rooted denial must yield to it on order for America to progress healthily as a land reputed for  individual freedom.
 
Like versus American need

We like candidates for the wrong reason. Well, perhaps I am applying the wrong usage of the word like. We “select” our candidates because we “like” them.  What Americans should be doing is selecting candidates that America needs at a given point in time.  It is not a matter of “liking” them per se, it is a matter of fitting the right person into the presidential slot at the right time.  It is the economy that is driving electoral support, even though people are calling out for individual freedom and 
constitutionalism. Misguided?  Not really.  The people have long since been duped into the personal favorite game then selecting politicians.  The whole idea behind this was to lure voters away from the political truth with the perceived likability of a given candidate!  We fell for it and what we have today is its direct consequence!  So yes, Americanism has been lost, but its recovery lies in the American people placing the truth before their preferential prejudices of denial.
