Perhaps you did not know this about me, but I am a troll! LOL! Seriously, apparently I am a troll… depending on who you ask of course. It was a recent wave of anti-PJ sentiment that unfolded on Twitter that brought this to the surface. Granted, I did not know about this until now because of my deliberate under utilization of social networking, but it is interesting nonetheless.
So how was it that I became a troll? Well, it was quite simple actually. Crystal
wrote an article in support of a Black Republican the GOP refused to support
. She tweeted the article and I uncharacteristically responded to her tweet in a very characteristic manner – and therein lies the problem… political honesty.
The Establishment Republican has done to Conservatism, what the Modern Liberal / Progressive has done to the Democrat Party – bastardized it. When you think of one, it is the lesser desirable aspect that comes forth in the mind’s eye. Clearly, not all Democrats are the baby killing, war mongering, wealth stealing, race baiting, profoundly ignorant, God hating, gay loving, right restricting, liberty stealing peddlers of political deceit, personal irresponsibility and overt dishonesty that Progressive influences have now made representative of the Left. In spite of such reality, the socially enforced current state of partisanism demands that we see only the worst in that which politically defies us. The mantra of resistance becomes a pseudo-intellectual and sophomoric statement of ideological defiance:
“You don’t agree with me because you are wrong, your political orientation is wrong and you will never agree because you are merely a blind follower of a highly faulted political regime.”
This temperament is of course deployed because forcefully attacking disagreement allows the freedom to not self-evaluate an individual’s own political orientation, personal beliefs and motives. Such self-evaluation would result in the acknowledgement that the aforementioned perspectives are questionable… in the least.
With this in mind, the true Conservative is likened to the more the stereotypical bible thumping, God fearing, overtly judgmental, prudish, gay hating, power grubbing, racist, fat White Establishment Republican in the eyes of the Progressively influenced Leftist.
In reality, these stereotypical, political impotents do in fact exist and it is their perverse distortions of self and ego driven narcissisms that are destroying the healthier sense of Americanism… by first destroying their own from within.
Not making sense?
Please indulge me while I elaborate and explain the whole “troll” thing.
“Daily Troll Alert?” Apparently, this “alert” is used to inform Twitter users when someone is saying something that other Twitter users belonging to a some political clique may not find favor in. It is sort of like high school gone digital – the quintessential definition of sophomoric. It is not being referred to as a troll that is worthy of garnering attention, it is who is so callow to perpetuate such nonsense. If you are thinking a Progressive, you could not be further from correct. Clearly an Establishment Republican (who has the political lack of awareness to consider herself a Conservative / Libertarian) attacking Conservative temperaments that are seeking to only improve the direction of the Right – albeit that Republicanism has reduced itself to the role of lesser evil considering Leftist alternatives).
The fact is Establishment Republicans are just as threatened by Conservatives as the Progressive Left. Both want more control over the people, less liberty and freedom for the people and attack on personal levels when they know they cannot defend themselves with facts of truth.
Let’s take the troll perpetuator, Gloria Mitchell for example. She is quick to launch personal attacks when the current state of the GOP is questioned in a manner no different than a Progressive attacking when Obama is criticized. Calling a person “stupid” is her favorite by far, but she is also quick to state that if you are Black, or of color and even remotely question the Republican establishment that you must be on “CRACK.” (Take the insinuations from that as you may… but the stereotypical Establishment Republican comes to mind. And to think, these same Republicans insist they are not a part of the problem that currently plagues the GOP. Equal parts amusing, sad and pathetic rolled up into a political ball of hate and contempt – mostly self-contempt that is).
Interestingly, our little Establishment Republican, Conservative hater is quick to denounce ObamaCare, yet is proud of her support for Mitt Romney who has also implemented health insurance mandates - and in the same breath, is quick to call others hypocrites, among other things.
Clearly a class act.
Here is my problem with today’s Establishment Republican; they make too many Progressives correct when they launch attacks depicting the Right as a bunch of racists based on generalizations and stereotypes.
Too often, we hear the elected Republican elite state how they represent American liberties and freedoms, yet, not a single one of them consistently voted against the Patriot Act
. These same individuals supported the freedom crippling NDAA
, unprecedented First Amendment limitations
have been applied both by Republicans and with Republican support. These Establishment Republicans are blindly supported no differently than Obama is supported by disillusioned Progressives – yet, we on the Right are not secure enough in our political identity to acknowledge the problem. If we are too insecure to acknowledge the problem exists, we will never have the courage to correct the course of the Right. Sadly, the failings of the Right are willfully and woefully protected by “troll perpetuators.”
America has fallen into a state of political despair driven by partisans who refuse to see their own wrongdoings and contemptuousness. Today’s partisans, with all their might, hate any all things that do not represent specifically what they are – even when the end goal of discourse is for their betterment and the benefit of the nation as a whole. It is this ill-contrived hate, which is now equally garnered on both the Right and Left that undermines the natural order of political progress. Rather than correct the wrongdoings, which are indefensible, it is chosen to attack. This only ensures what is wrong and can be improved, stays wrong and will not be improved. Little in the political realm is more disappointing.
Are we to believe that Liberals are the only women having abortions? Are Republicans the only ones in America who believe they have the constitutionally given right to bear arms? Conservatives must then be the only Americans that believe in less government. Such generalizations are completely absurd, but we have become so divided we cannot see how farfetched these assertions actually are. We have not only learned to tolerate these gross and inaccurate generalizations; we have grown so apathetic and submissive to political order, that we actually buy into it them.
It is not that I am “anti-Right” or anything like that, though I have matured enough politically to see the gross republican failings. Hell, that would make me a Liberal… or even worse – an Independent! “A far Right Conservative,” a very good friend more recently called me. It was to say that I tend to be a bit unbending in my political perspectives; rigid and unforgiving – extreme even (which is what “far Right” means anymore). Consider it a “slight of compliment” that was both fitting and at times appropriate.
It was a comment that made me think
Place the emphasis of “far Right Conservative” on Conservative; i.e. not Republican is what was being stated. (I like the sound of that – “Not Republican!” It would make a good blog or website theme these days). I like Republicanism and the associated political ideologies, but before that, the political values of fiscal responsibility, individual freedom, constitutional rights, personal accountability, personal responsibility and limited government must be upheld. Looking at my little checklist: Where do Republicans really fit in to my political value system? In my opinion, Republican officials represent these values in terms of rhetoric only, not in practice. They DO exist in Republican philosophy and mantra, but both current and more recent Republican leadership refuse to practice them. Moreover, I see the Party for how it practices the art of American politicking, not how they wish to be perceived as practicing them. And this is where I simply veer course from the “establishment Republican” – they either do not find such values as important as myself, or they simply refuse to see and accept the truth about what their Republican political leadership is actually doing. It is not that they are bad people; it is just that I see things differently and am accordingly not blinded by party affiliations over personal values and common sense. (Ahem, Not that all Republicans are).
I just don’t get it
Practically, everyone on the Right is fuming over Obama’s Executive Order essentially granting amnesty to illegal immigrants – and rightfully so. What I don’t get is why the actively elected Right has called upon an out of office, professional President wannabe (with no active political decision making authority what-so-ever) to take the lead on the immigration issue. Rather than effect active legislation, those HIRED TO SERVE IN OFFICE BY THE RIGHT have taken a roll of passivity while further relying on a moot political figure, solely because he is running for office. Simply put, Romney is not in a position to right the unilateral wrong committed by Obama, nor is Romney in a position to dictate immigration policy. Elected politicians, inept in their own individual political ability, have hid from the issue behind a Romney shield instead of taking action as they were hired by the people to do. Yet, no one really seems to notice.
For purposes of personal amusement, let’s take a quick glimpse on Romney and the Latino vote.
Romney’s presidential bid needs no less than 31% of the Latino vote AFTER Obama just rolled over, smiled and swallowed and secured the Latino vote in a monumental way. When pressed on whether he [Romney] would strike down the EO if elected President, he ducked, dodged and avoided answering. [Should probably insert a note here that Romney’s avoidance means he will do nothing if elected]. Romney however, is not dumb, but he may be making a very stupid move to resolve the “immigration” conundrum he faces.
More of the same old thing
Have you noticed how the media consistently covered how “Obama deported more illegal Mexicans than Bush;” all while AZ was attacked for enforcing the same standard Obama was being given credit for? Perhaps you may have noticed when Obama deportation numbers were being dropped in public view; ICE was granting amnesty. This Democrat hypocrisy exists because MOST DEMOCRATS SUPPORT IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT, NOT AMNESTY. Obama pandered to both sides of Liberal immigration temperament and then sealed the deal favoring the Latino vote over national sovereignty. Suckers.
Here’s another little immigration conflict for ya! Asians now stand to overtake Mexicans in immigration to the US. If they (both Republicans and Democrats) have sold national sovereignty for the Latino vote to this extent; can you possibly imagine what they will be willing to do for the Asian vote once politicians decide to make Asians the next American race issue? That is how they get the votes you know. They make it look like anyone not of a specified race is wrong and racist for not being of that race and then promise they will make things different and better. The whole time making it worse to have something to actually fix, then walking away - after the given ethic group has given them their blind loyalty that is. If you are Black like me, that should sound all too familiar. If you are Mexican, I hope you have been watching closely; you’re next.
Republican vetting against constitutionalism
Rubio is currently being vetted for the coveted VP slot. Not a bad choice in terms of political perspectives, but one cannot help but wonder if this is merely a “Hey! I like Latino’s too!” move to counter traditionally low Latino support for Republican politicians in a time where the Latino vote could well be the deciding factor in the 2012 Presidential race. Though obvious, this is not what makes it a potentially disastrous and stupid move.
Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, has something in common with the good old Prez. Rubio’s parents “held off” on become US citizens until such a time Marco had already earned dual citizenship. (In case you have not noticed, the commonality is not the Cuban parent part….) Please allow me to digress even further.
The Right hosed the “Birther” issue by attacking it the laziest way possible. Challenged was “where Obama was born” because the Right felt that if it proved Obama was born in Kenya, it would be an open and shut case; WRONG! They almost completely ignored the true issue in that Obama’s father gave him dual citizenship because he [Obama] was born of a father that claimed citizenship to a nation that extended its citizenship to those children of their citizens born abroad. You see, it never matter “where” Obama was born per se, because the dual citizenship is where the constitutional argument lies; an argument more difficult in constitutional terms than that of Obama being born in a foreign nation. Had Republicans taken the higher ground, the “birther” conspiracy would have held the merit it truly deserved. The average American of course, does not know this and the majority of those whom do possess the apathy of those worthy of following only. Be that as it may, constitutional eligibility has been brought back to the forefront by Republicans; incorrectly, but nonetheless by Republicans – and constitutionally minded Republicans at that.
So, that leaves me pondering why a Republican presidential wannabe would venture so recklessly in the deep and murky waters of constitutional eligibility – after making such a big deal about it and all.
What matters is winning the Latino vote, not the constitution. Sound familiar? The system was wrong for allowing Obama to be vetted and consequently seated in terms of constitutional eligibility. Now stay with me here. Yet, because American politicians have failed in the three years since Obama’s election to correct (or even attempted to correct) the failed system that allowed Obama to win the Presidential seat in the name of the Democrats – it is now only appropriate that the constitutional eligibility blind eye now be turned in REPUBLICAN favor. A little quid quo pro if you will. Since when was the constitution relevant anyway? When will we, as Americans, become smart enough to realize that Left versus Right yields no true winner when both are wrong?
When both are wrong; all lose
And that is the underlying theme of all of this anyway isn’t it? Both sides are wrong and they are wrong on all of the issues. When it comes to the political elite; they are of the same agenda, just with different means to their ends. Obamacare was so wrong, yet we nominate its architect for President? Never mind Nixonian Republicans and their attempt, ignore Clinton’s attempts and Gingrich who pushed it while Speaker of the House. Illegal immigration is wrong, but Reagan passed Amnesty; now Obama pens an EO for the exact same reasons Reagan pushed it through. I mean really, with such hypocrisy; who should take the establishment Republican or modern Liberal seriously? When is the last time an administration, albeit Republican or Democrat, effectively reduced government, regulation and spending? Chirp, chirp. (Hint: WWII for those not taking the question with its posed rhetorical intent. BTW, it was the sharpest recession recovery in US economic history – yet today both Republicans and Democrats see it only fit to increase spending in order to provide entitlements in barter for votes). The big difference is that Democrats have arguably done a better job of exposing Republican failures than Republicans have exposed the egregious failings of Democrats. What’s funny is that Americans are ever so bitterly divided – all while their given elected officials pursue a common agenda against the good and freedoms of the people. Well, that’s not really funny is it? Please interject sad, pathetic, pitiful or any other adjective you deem most appropriate lieu of funny.
The problem is that, to an establishment Republican, I maintain an “extremely conservative” political perspective. (The word they are looking for is DIVIANT, not so much extreme – while fully admitting extreme can fit in several places). ;)
It is this deviance that separates Conservatives from establishment Republicans. It is almost as if establishment Republicans have not yet awakened to the fact their political elite do not share their agendas, or at least I hope they don’t (given all the unconstitutional laws passed and what not).
It goes to reason why so many people refuse to follow politics. It is truly a culture of deceit, corruption, hypocrisy and destruction. In not following, you are spared the frustration and don’t have to look like a hypocrite for supporting one side over the other; you win by not playing. What’s better than that?
I hope at this point you realize our problem is not so much what the Left is doing versus what the Right is doing. They are doing the same things and we only find political wrongs “un-American” and unconstitutional when it is the other side penning the legislation. It is as shameful as it is true. Perhaps what is most shameful is supporting this Two Party system solely designed for internal destruction and expecting someone to take you seriously.
One thing is for sure, you learn more about American political culture than you want to.
Over time, you find yourself struggling to maintain a balance between your own political alliances and what is right from a more objective perspective.
Your awareness of America’s plight under current political influences forces you to accept a reality the average American voter is free to deny the existence of.
All of a sudden, you’re alone in your understanding of a two party political machine hell bent on the destruction of America’s intent.
Over time, I have grown weary of the lies perpetrated by both the Right and Left as they seek to advance their collective agendas against the people. Lies both voters of the Right and Left accept as reality. Having grown up Liberal
and now freely embracing Conservatism to actually vote with my personal values, all of this has brought me to my current place in time.
The time has come to stop allowing Republicans from so easily destroying Conservative interests. "More or less, Conservatism, mothered by the Republican Party and Fathered by the Democrat Party, currently suffers an Oedipus complex in that Conservatives wish to destroy Democrats while they harbor a perverse attraction to the Republican political elite." - Paul Johnson Proof and reason
Have you ever stopped to take a look at the Left versus Right and realized the arguments only exist because the Constitution has become an afterthought that is only used when a given side finds it convenient?
If we place the Constitution first, we would not have the volatile political atmosphere of today.
To me, this means BOTH Republicans and Democrats have duped the American voter into debating the semantics of an argument in order to force their prying eyes away from the only Document that has the power to FORCE government back into its LIMITED role over the people.
The Democrat versus Republican perspective actually LIMITS the perspectives of debate.
Us against them is what the voter thinks, but the American voter lacks the awareness to see the Democrat and Republican political elite are now essentially one in the same. Proof positive lies here
It is here that I feel myself losing my grip on Conservatism as a political affiliation.
First of all, in more places than not, in order to vote “Conservative,” you must register Republican to do so – even though there are ever increasing disparities between the two.
My thinking at this point in time is that Conservatives are selling out their own personal and voting values to play second fiddle to a failing and highly distorted sense of Republicanism that rules the Right today.
Here’s how they do it
Rush Limbaugh was probably worse about it in 2010 than was anyone else.
If the Tea Party votes for such and such, he would rant, we will split the vote and the Democrats will win. (And they will in turn advance the very same agenda against the people the Republicans sought to).
This has evolved into a new Republican mantra; “You have to look at the bigger picture.” the newly recruited, newly brain washed, once Conservative, newly pseudo-Republican schlepps now say.
They are saying; put your Conservative values aside so Mitt can slay Barak in the name of the honorable Republican Party!
And, in droves they are doing just that – placing their voting values aside so a Republican with NO CONSERVATIVE VALUES OR INTERESTS can AGAIN hold the Office of the President of the United States. A proposal of lunacy
It would be bad if Obama were reelected, we all know that.
But what we don’t know is what it will take for Americans to understand the need of more Conservatives influences in America.
Perhaps eight years of assaults on the Constitution by this man will be enough to make Americans appreciate the Constitution and its intent to LIMIT GOVERNMENT.
Perhaps it will take even more threats against personal freedom for the people to call upon the Constitutional Articles and a certain Declaration to return America to the people she ascribed a responsibility of protection.
Perhaps what the American voter needs is a true wake-up call to understand the threat their growing government actually represents to them.
Obama may well be the man to bring it to them given enough time.From Conservative to Mindless Minion
It is tiresome watching once Conservative voters falling in line like mindless minions (#mindlessminions
) to a higher Republican order touting the likes of a presidential candidate that is a direct expression of their very protests against the Republican Party.
And to think they have the nerve say, “You have to look at the bigger picture.”
A bigger picture of no Obama and no Conservative values, but all they will admit to is the former, their conscious’ refuse to allow them to address the latter.
Sell outs have a hard time acknowledging certain things you know; no matter how obvious they are.
But I digress.
The fact of the matter is that many Conservatives lack to courage to truly be Conservative.
First they flocked to Herman Cain who demonstrated more Republican values than he had interests in individual freedom.
Now they pull the Romney line so the Republicans can defeat Obama with a man who will be as much like Obama as Obama has been like Bush.
Just like Obama allowed Bush’s final budget to wreak havoc for four years, Romney will bury the fight against Obamacare.
He is after all, the practiced architect and prototype developer of Obamacare – the program the Right spent millions trying to stop.
More hypocritical than ironic when you stop and look at the history of the Republican fight FOR health insurance mandates
He will, in the name of Republicans, continue to recklessly spend and Blame Obama for not passing a single budget since Bush.
Foolishly, Conservatives are yet again supporting the bane of their existence the likes of both the Republican Party and Romney as their selection for Free World Leader.
These so-called Conservatives say they like Romney’s business acumen.
I do too, but what does that have to do with being President?
Better yet, what will that matter when Americans lack the personal freedom to fully enjoy a better economy WHICH CANNOT BE DELIVERED TO THE PEOPLE FROM THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT in the first place?
But hey, I don’t “see the bigger picture.”
With the loss of the Conservative voice influencing American politics, Republicanism is allowed to freely expand government without the resistance of Conservatives whom have vested against their own values because they have been fooled into supporting the Republican norm over their own values EVERY ELECTION CYCLE.
When will Conservatives stop playing second fiddle to the lesser Republican?
When will Conservatives have the courage to stand up for their own values and have the faith in the values that guide their everyday lives and vote accordingly?
While it is absurd to actually wish another four years of Obama on Americans to awaken them from their own world of lies, denial and apathy; the only element that can stop America’s downward spiral are the Conservative influences being currently being brain washed by the Right into supporting the least Conservative candidate in the field; next to Obama that is.
Why is it that so few see this for what it is?

Political writing for a living is an unusual form of work.
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!
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?
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.
I have to admit, it is good to be a work in progress; it allows you to be wrong from time to time as it grants the freedom to grow and learn through identifying inaccuracies in concepts, thoughts, ideologies, and predictions. In this case, it was a conceptual inaccuracy about Herman Cain’s once fleeting and “marginal at best
” support base. His win in Florida, though followed by an almost immediate and abysmal defeat within the same polling group, was answered by a wave of support as Perry lost steam fueled by his more “mainline Republican” positions that are fouled and marred by a classically Republican dichotomy.
This is not to say that if Perry were not being exposed for his questionable positions on illegal immigration, borders, and trade that Cain would not have surged. In fact, as I look back, Cain was likely to surge with or without Perry’s history or debate strategies, which are “not [his] strong point.” Cain is on fire; a game changer that is indicative of a very telling bifurcation in the Right. While I still feel Cain is far too green to bear the burden of a nation in crisis, knowing the direst of Cain consequences will be felt not by me, but by my children – the man’s momentum is undeniable. Either way, it is important to note that Cain and his 9-9-9 driven support represent an important divergence from the common and arguably inept GOP support structure as demonstrated by those on the Right still supporting the problems represented by “Republican” in candidates like Romney – the “Front-runner Farce.” Not one of those guys
Cain differs from the Romneys’ in that he stands against the traditional GOP standard that has set the wheels in motion for an essentially uni-dimensional candidate field designed solely against a train wreck of a President
. In doing so, the GOP candidates are starved on issues like foreign policy and have in turn (Romney) designed foreign policy proposals markedly similar to that of the Obama administration. Republican supporters ONLY SEE no Obama and refuse to address how both Romney and Perry will advance policies that they today stand against. Like I said, Cain is the “Easy the Choice
” for the Republican voter weary of the current GOP direction, but not quite courageous enough to fully embrace the true Conservative values driven into existence in the 1960’s when it was determined the Republicans were actually part of the American problem. Cain, well, he just is not one of those guys – and for that reason (among others) Cain supports are to be admired. You can decide whether or not to admonish the ideologies behind Romney supporters for failing True Conservatism and remaining part of the antagonism destroying America.
One of the key support elements lies in the flat tax of the 9-9-9 plan. Nine percent tax to be paid by every American. A fair share paid by all. The poor will say, that the 9% affects them more adversely than the rich. The Left will declare it class warfare – personally, I like the flat tax as an economic adjustment tool that can serve to return equilibrium. (If you do not know what I mean by that, look it up – no time to explain all the details now).
Many will assuredly declare Cain “won” last night’s debates. You don’t “win” debates
! All candidates do is present their ideas compared to current policy and that of other candidates in ways they think you want to hear it. You either like what a person has to say, or you do not. Over the string and series of debates, you then narrow down the candidate that best addresses your personal values and beliefs; clearly, no one “wins” – the media just uses that to sell candidates. Look at it this way; how many times has Romney “won” a debate with horrid performances? Not picking on Romney or his supporters, but we must understand he is saying what many Republicans wish to hear. Trouble is, horrid is subjective. What is awful for the Conservative is often grand to the Republican – that is how different we can be!
Blackness; a rant Unfortunately, Cain is now a matter of Blackness. Well, not to us, but to the Left where race is the pinnacle issue. To combat Cain Blackness, the Left sought to demonstrate Obama still maintains control of the Black vote – and I am sure he does. What made this interesting is how the Left, through the media, concluded Obama is still (the one) supported by the Black vote. To accomplish this, the Left turned to the most reputable polls. The discovery was what one might expect; Obama support was rapidly waning in the one area they hoped would be steadiest – during the most challenging times, Obama’s Black support dropped an astronomical 50%! Not thwarted by the truth, the Left sought out a poll that would show the most marginal loss of Black support. They resorted to a poll that directly asked respondents to overlook Obama’s performance as President. "General impressions of Obama rather than focus on the job he is doing as president" to be specific. This ploy resulted in a 5% drop in support when compared to his Black support immediately following his election. This of course failed for obvious reasons. The US Presidency of today is about getting the damn job done. Obama has been so bad, that in order to find support they must dismiss the single reason Obama is being polled – disgraceful. Following this failure, Team Obama ambassadored Team Sharpton to discuss whether or not Cain is Black enough for… being Black I guess – never mind the fact Obama is half White and half African (which equals zero percent Black as we currently understand Black to be). In dissent, Cain said both the best and worst things imaginable on being Black in America. If you are poor, it is your fault and if that was not both good and bad enough, he followed it with having “left the [Liberal] Plantation a long time ago.” Moreover, he said the Black, as a victim, is doomed to an eternity of second-rate failure while wallowing in self-contempt and the continued disbelief in individual competence through truer equality. All of a sudden, it was as if Cain was speaking directly to me after reading some of my blogs. Granted, Cain is not the Black Conservative Antithesis (yet), but he fundamentally understands the plight of the Black community driven by the irrational need to vote Democrat. Cain is saying that Black support for Obama is essentially a self-fulfilled prophecy of Black failure. He is correct, but the Black community is nowhere near ready to understand the depth of the implication, nor change their voting habits to match the values and conservative principles taught in the home. In translation – Cain will never attain the Black vote preaching such concepts of contempt for Blacks who refuse to awaken to our own reality. Oddly, the Black community, which shuns Cain, will highly benefit from Cain as they become less dependent upon the clearly oppressive Left. Gotta love the multitude of ironies! Speaking of Black; have you been keeping an eye Justice Thomas? Big, bad is brewing with deep, far-reaching implications.
An interesting element exists in literally 100% of the Cain supporters I have talked with; a certain reservation is present with Cain that is in constant battle with his more likable attributes. People like his willingness to learn. I like that too, it is just that I reserve that as an admirable trait in subordinates where I can assure they develop appropriately. If you wish to lead me, your learning curve requirement best be minimal! As these reservations with Cain emerge, supporters almost immediately go into denial because they have been conditioned by a broken two party political machine to “settle.” Supporters never use the word, but they describe its conditions quite well.
Whether it is his greenhorn role or other issues, Cain, like any other candidate has inherent shortcomings. The more articulate citizen now understands how the Fed is contributing to the nation’s economic doldrums. The Cain supporter not only understands this, but also opts to avoid Cain’s history with the Fed. As the issue grows more critical, the Cain supporter now refuses to address his highly disputable Fed role model of the bubble blowing Greenspan. Once upon a time, I thought Greenspan was an economic genius. You have to understand that this was at a time when I was acquiring my Masters Degree and was attending Columbia – the Left leaning school highly supported several governmental economic programs now under Conservative scrutiny. Self-education and the school of working to actually retire one day (soon) have taught me otherwise. Calls to end the Fed and many other government organizations go largely unheard by not only Cain, but also the mainline candidates like Romney and Perry. Clearly, Cain blends more into the Republican norm and becomes far less of an exception to the typical and now problematic political elite of the Right. Conservatives, shun this and in doing so, look at bit deeper at what both separates and ties Cain to that so troublesome (R) behind his surname.
Looking deeper reveals innate differences between Republicans and Conservatives. Cain will not defend the individual liberties of the citizenry. The reason for this is, like his supporters, he too has opted to “settle” in that the Patriot Act is 90% correct. To the Republican, 10% represents a sort of acceptable and nominal dysfunction, whereas the Conservative views this as a potential showstopper because the said 10% wreaks havoc on individual liberty. The difference is profound. To the Republican, individual liberty is more of an afterthought of policy than it is the priority Conservative Libertarians endear it to be. This is not a good or bad thing per se; it only highlights difference between the two. Not ready for freedom
Truth be told, as much as Americans think they are ready to return to a state in which the Constitution becomes America’s priority, as a people, we demonstrate with no uncertainty we are fearful of being burdened with the level of personal accountability and responsibility required to maintain the freedoms bestowed by the Document. Conservatives are demonstrating that America MUST return to its founding roots and in doing so; government reforms will take hold as politicians become more loyal to America’s intent. These politicians will have no choice but to abandon America’s current course to self-destruction led by both the Liberal Progressives currently in office and the GOP’s failure to assume more conservative positioning.
Republicans (let’s be honest), have not been attentive to the calls from the voting Right. More importantly, their success is deeply rooted in the overwhelming Liberal failure
than it is their accomplishments in office or meeting the needs of their constituents. Many Republicans see this and have abandoned traditional GOP prospects for the less traditional Herman Cain. Good for them and good for Herman!
Me? I am not on board the Herman train because I value things that span beyond the scope of potential Cain represents. If it came down to Cain V. Obama… I would flick the Cain switch. If you pitted Cain against the likes of a strong Conservative cherishing constitutionalism and individual liberty… Can would be assed out of my vote without a doubt. It is my values, I am not voting for myself next year; I am voting for Jamahl, Jasmine, Janece ,and Aaliyah and their future. I want them to be able to look me in the eye and tell me they feel it is possible for their potential to carry them further in life than my potential has brought me. Cain cannot deliver the intent of this ideology without first embracing the true concepts of individual liberty – even though he himself is the direct result of this sense of Americanism! You see, it is not Cain; it is the way WE minimalize our perspectives of what and who these candidates actually represent.
