Ron Paul Losers

I expect vitriolic comments and the same old tiresome arguments for their dogged determination to champion their candidate who lost.

I like Ron Paul. He has the courage to say what he truly means. That is rare in politics these days. Those who pander to causes and voters have little to brag about except their lack of principles. I agree with Paul about the financial mess we’re in, the gold standard, and auditing the Fed. I do not agree with his foreign policy positions.

We live in a historic time in our country placing us on the threshold of choosing liberty or tyranny. There are no other choices and that is where the staunch Ron Paul supporters lose. We only have two real choices in November to make that choice. I’m in the same position. My candidate didn’t win.

Earlier today I saw the same old tired attitudes and excuses. One commenter on Facebook used Bill Maher, of all people, for his argument not to see “2016: Obama’s America.” He gave Maher’s explanation of why he wouldn’t see it. That’s your frame of reference? Bill Maher? He wouldn’t even avail himself of the long researched information presented chronologically in the movie concerning our present President’s background. Bill Maher was good enough for him. It makes you wonder how radical some Paul supporters have become.

What happened at the “good old boy” GOP convention was an outrage. The rules change and how it was handled was ghastly. Boehner and Sununu have lost all credibility with many Republicans. Mine was gone years ago. Many will leave the party because of it and even more will actively support and work for a NEW political party that upholds our Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers. I advocate a new party AFTER the election. The “chicken-neck” Republicans who have dined at the trough for generations in Washington D.C. must go or be replaced. The GOP will implode when conservatives and libertarians flee the party. Many are dissenting now. Read “Pavlov’s Republicans.”

The dilemma for the Ron Paul supporters is:

1. Do I continue to support Paul in this election knowing I can’t win and let tyranny reign?

2. Do I take my ball and go home, not vote at all, and support tyranny?

3. Do I stamp my feet, vote for Obama and give him power by fiat and support tyranny?

4. Do I use the facade of  “principles” as my excuse not to TRY and save this nation for our children, grandchildren and future generation? Or, at least give them the chance to fight for liberty should I fail at this juncture?

5. Have I REALLY thought about what it means to have Obama for another four years? With Obama’s track record would I even continue to have freedom to speak of Mr. Paul’s point of view?

6. OR, do I take a deep breath, hold my nose, vote for the only other choice, work to get Constitutionalists in the Senate and House, and work like my life depended on it, (if your senior citizen with Medicare it literally does) then hold the new administrations feet to the fire?

An implacable position makes Paul supporters losers. Why you ask? They will lose when they choose to stay at home or write in their candidate’s name making the CHANCE for freedom regained, lost. The man they so admire is an older gentleman. His life span, in all probability, is not much longer; much like mine. Their hero will no longer be with them. The idol they so admire will be gone. Now the rumor is the Paul supporters will try and suppress the vote for Romney. I can think of no better way to leave a legacy of denigration for a fine man than to demolish the chance at saving our children’s future. They will lose on all sides. They will lose him, their freedom and they will help to denigrate Mr. Paul’s legacy.

Yes, I agree with the Ron Paul supporters and Mark Levin that we have lost our freedoms. Will we have a chance, JUST THE CHANCE, to regain them under Barack Obama? The answer is a resounding NO! The recent detainment of a Facebook user, former marine Brandon Raub, without warrant or arrest, taken to a psychiatric facility until the Rutherford Institute stepped in as his legal counsel, is one indication that your freedoms are one electoral vote away from you.

The REAL questions is:

Do I give away the CHANCE to turn it around so I can continue to work for the things Congressman Ron Paul espoused or do I hand it to a despot willing to take even your freedom to voice Mr. Paul’s positions away? That’s the question. A CHANCE to redeem our freedom or NO chance at all and irrecuperable tyranny.

Like Mark Levin said, if the GOP doesn’t listen, we won’t have to do anything; it will implode. Levin’s audio is what changed my mind.

That’s right. Surprise, surprise I held the same position, however, the logic with which Mr. Levin states his position turned me 180 degrees. I beg good citizens who support Ron Paul not to give up the CHANCE.

Mark Levin: I’d Rather Fight With A Moderate Republican Than Give Obama a Second Term!

Fidel and Barack Paralleled by Cuban Immigrant

Raul E. Jimenez – Guest Author

Raul is an acquaintance on Facebook. He is a Cuban immigrant and has shared many concerns about our country and our current President. After viewing “2016: Obama’s America” he sees parallels between Fidel Castro and Barack Obama.  His words are published with permission. Please note the video of Jon Voight at the end, who agrees, in part with Raul.

Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama, is a product of his family environment in Kenya, Honolulu, and Indonesia. Such is the conclusion one can glean from the movie 2016, which I saw in my local theater yesterday. Barack’s mother was, in Cuban slang, a “bollo loco,” a would-be hippie with intellectual capacity for loving, disruption, flowers, ideals, and marrying revolutionaries. She married Barack Senior in Kenya, gave birth to Barack Jr., then left Barack Senior when he turned out to be a noisy revolutionary with several women in tow. Barack’s father was a collectivist drunk, and yet his ex-wife continued to admire him and brainwash Barack Jr. on the greatness of his father.  This continued even after she remarried. Thus, were born Barack Jr.’s dreams from an absent father who hated British Colonials and Imperialists.

Barack Jr. learned left leanings while mentored by Frank Marshall Davis (at the urging of Barry’s grandfather, another communist) in Honolulu. Later in his life Barack Jr. states in the audio version of his book, “Dreams from My Father,” he looked for the company and advice from revolutionaries and communist terrorists of whom his father would have been proud, i.e. Ayers, Reverend Wright, and a communist revolutionary professor at Harvard, a Brazilian by the name of Unger.

The movie ties up nicely how a dysfunctional background twisted little Barack into adopting goals to destroy the USA as a Colonialist country. He came to believe the USA and England to be countries that owed the third world. In Barack’s mind, as much as in his father’s, western countries would exploit riches in the poor countries and take them home to build products they would in turn sell back to the poor. Barack’s real beliefs are that the USA and the West, as well as Israel, owe the third world and must pay for their sins. The thoughts are extended to individuals who, in Barack’s view of the world, are not entitled to the earnings from their products, since these were illegally and unfairly produced.

This all reminded me of Fidel Castro in Cuba, where I was born and lived when the Revolution took place around Christmas of ’58. I have often wondered what made Castro hate his countrymen to the point of ruining the island. The explanation, as in the case of Obama, can be found in his youth.  Castro is the bastard child of a Spanish-born Castro who owned a farm in Eastern Cuba. The old man married a younger, sexier woman, as Spaniards often did in the Caribbean. Social rejection ensued for the children as Cuban society wasn’t kind to children born out-of-wedlock. Castro became what in Cuba was known as an “acomplejado” (someone with some sort of emotional complex). Even as a bastard and, an ”acomplejado,” Fidel managed to get a good education (Jesuits in Santiago, and the University of Havana). He developed an impetuous attitude and a violent spirit against anybody who contradicted him (being the subject of bastard type jokes wasn’t easy). Contrary to Barack he got by through bullying and confrontation.

Barack grew up as a non-confrontational Black seeking help from the Whites he hated. Barack used racial subterfuges and his understanding that Americans felt guilty for slavery. Castro used overtly crooked political tactics while at the University and turned students and others against dictator Batista who was turned into a symbol of injustice and unfairness. Eventually, Castro succeeded by making everyone in Cuba believe that his Revolution would return the prosperous country and republic to democratic ways. He enjoyed support from the US State Department, the CIA, and drunken Hollywood personalities like Errol Flynn. The use of bombs, guerrilla tactics, and Molotov cocktails, demoralized Batista’s Army and they succumbed to the revolutionary assault. The result? Fidel Castro turned Cuba into a Fourth World country that lacks everything from oil to soap and food. The island gets oil for free from Venezuela’s dictator Chavez. Once in power, Fidel dreamt of destroying the United States.

Decades later, Barack Obama has used stealth tactics to easily travel an otherwise difficult road from total unknown (a man who never ran anything and hardly worked for a living) to US Senator and eventually President of the United States in just a couple of years. Fidel took several years of violent outbursts and guerrilla/urban warfare to get to his goal while Barack accomplished in it but a few. Once in power, Barack dreams of destroying the US Constitution and has usurped the means to do it.

As the movie 2016 clearly shows, Barack’s re-election in 2012 would result in the destruction of Israel and a much diminished USA by 2016. Collectivism would replace our American Republic. The dreams of Barack, adopted from his father, would replace our Founder’s American Dream.

Dinesh D’Souza, the movie maker and narrator, shared the same anti-colonialism environment Barack Obama suffered as a child and yet he became a productive, intellectual analyzer of politics and social conditions in a pro-American way. Dinesh’s family, I believe, shared a decency and concept of order that helped the young man to turn into a productive citizen of the United States. Castro and Obama share a similar dysfunctional cast of characters in their early lives and this turned them toward corrupt efforts and deceptive techniques to implement Marxist governments in their countries.

Luckily, in the USA, the effort is not yet complete. If we don’t vote this disastrous impostor out of the White House the USA will become another Cuba, an island today reduced to the disastrous consequences of communism. The movie’s conclusion is obvious: stop Obama from being elected in 2012 or face a defeated country in 2016.

Jon Voight agrees with Raul.

Free-Market Cat vs Socialist Cat

Odd title isn’t it. Remember that old phrase “cool cat?”  OK I’m showing my age. Our President IS a socialist cat and it’s not cool.

We’re helping a stray cat now.  She’s been here for about two weeks as we try to find the owner or a new home.  She’s earning her keep by taking care of the field mice and unfortunately some the birds we like to feed.  We think she believes it’s her job to keep the pests out.  She’d make a great companion or a ranch cat.  She’s loving, non-aggressive, and just wants security and love. She’s willing to work for her room and board.

The situation brings back memories of the two stray cats we adopted.  La Gata was in sad shape when she cried in pain at our doorstep.  Starving to death she looked as if she came from one of Hitler’s death camps.  We gave her milk and a little food.  She was so weak she could only drink or eat very little amounts, then rest.  The rule was she was not to come in the house. As weeks went by, she could go in the garage. YA right!  La Gata was looking different and we soon realized she was a he and was renamed Gato.  He lived for 16 years under the care of our family.  He recovered to be “the most beautiful cat” the groomers had ever seen. At the peak of his recovery he weighed 18 pounds.  We affectionately said he looked like Orson Wells.

As he assimilated to rules and gained more freedom in the house, he acted according to his feline instinct by marking his territory.  Straight for the wall he aimed.  I screamed and chased him out the slider to the back yard.  Gato was so traumatized he had made me angry, he quickly ran to the back fence, caught a bird, kept it in his mouth and mewed to bring it in as a gift to make amends.  I told him, “it’s a nice bird , but it’s not coming in the house.”  It’s as if he understood every word.  He quickly spit it out and cried for mercy.  I couldn’t help but laugh.  He stayed out for a while longer.  He was  a free market cat.  He needed something, went and got it on his own, and wanted to share with us in the only way he knew.  It was his bird, he worked for it, he earned it. Our second younger stray on the other hand showed her colors.

Shadow saw the bird-gift and promptly picked it up and took it around the side door of the garage and ceremoniously presented it at the kitchen door.  She was taking credit for something someone else had accomplished. She was the socialist cat. She hoped to gain from someone else’s work. Had something happened to us she may not have been able to survive on her own.  That is how it is with socialists.  They are not self-sufficient.  What’s the old saying — the best way to help a man is not to give him a fish but to teach him how to fish?

Shadow grew and matured and learned from Gato that taking care of herself was the better idea.  Gato’s affection toward Shadow taught her many things. He would care for her, defend her, and show her how things worked. Praise and gifts were more readily accepted if she won them herself.  Consequently, on several occasions she would whine outside the slider to come in, and lo-and-behold she would open her mouth and release a live butterfly.  It was something to see.  She did not hurt it, bat it or play with it, she just presented her live gift, earning her much praise.

It makes me wonder why our President was not taught to be self-sufficient and why it’s acceptable to take the fruit of other’s labor for himself and his friends. What lacked in his upbringing that makes him less of a man?

Simple, weak analogy, yes.  We don’t offer anyone a favor by simply handing them things.  A need that cannot be met because of circumstances must always be helped with generosity.

Our President says “work” should not be required of able-bodied persons collecting welfare from the citizens of this country who have worked to provide for their families.  He is what psychologists call an enabler, what political intellectuals call a socialist. He has never worked for a paycheck a day in his life or run a business.  He takes from others who have worked for it, gives it to himself and to his friends.  He buys friends with our money.  He is not one who learns. He’s the antithesis of a true American President. He is the antithesis of John F. Kennedy and the American work ethic. The new movie documentary by Gerald Molen, Oscar-winning producer of Schlinder’s list, gives a glimpse of why this man is what he is.  The movie “2016: Obama’s America” is playing now in theaters across the country.  Yesterday, it was the number one box office hit to the surprise of Hollywood.

He is the socialist cat. He’s one that doesn’t learn. He’s in the position of the Presidency because of the very people and country he hates. He has been given an opportunity. He is ungrateful. He’s a taker. He believes he’s entitled to what others have and he takes it without a blink of concern or shame. He is the socialist cat and it’s not “cool.”

Since the formal announcement on August 11, 2012 of Mitt Romney’s choice for VP, Paul Ryan, the I, Me & Myself crowd has been out in full, uncontrollable force. Unable to control their self-importance they have come out into, what I see as, three classifications;

  1. The clearly left leaning socialist worshipers (wanting only to do what they do best, mock),
  2. The self-professed Christians (who are practicing cafeteria faith),
  3. The heretofore rational thinkers (who are rational until they can’t be rational anymore).

The first group is no surprise, in terms of their rhetoric, however the force with which they hit the social sites as soon as Paul Ryan’s name was confirmed was entirely, uncontrollably, chaotic even for these terminal blatherers.

The second group have discarded the most important tenant of faith by insisting that their understanding is superior to God’s grasp of any given situation.  As a Christian myself I know this is something that must be resisted daily if we are to truly put our trust in God. Only practicing that part of our faith will enable us to experience the manifestation of peace in our hearts.

The third group has blown their cover of rationality by throwing rationale out the window with their inability to remain rational when facing challenges to their own preconceived conclusions.

All these groups have taken to the social sites to espouse how unnerved they are not only with the Ryan choice, by a candidate they’re not fond of to begin with, but with the fact that their favorite candidate is now hopelessly off their wish list. For the Sunshine Patriots the Republican Convention is not going to be their “I told you so” moment when their candidate of choice becomes the nominee defying all odds.  For the progressives’ it’s clear their false god is not easily sailing into a second term.

Well, too bad and so sad, for all three groups, but facts are facts and none of these groups has shown even the slightest comprehension of reality vs wishful thinking.  The simple explanation for this is their inability to get out of their own way. This is expected from the left but certainly not from those who profess they are Christians, even in the face of adversity, or those who profess a willingness to embrace rational thought no matter the events.

The sorry state of these people would be of little concern but for the importance of this election season. When I read comments that show an inability or unwillingness to put the country before I, Me & Myself then I cringe at the knowledge that this oversimplified thought, the self-centeredness, the immaturity that gave us Obama to begin with is still alive and thriving.

Regardless of the facts, regardless of the hardships, regardless of the enemy at the gate, these people are still hopelessly ensnared in the worship of I, Me & Myself. Will those who call themselves Christians begin to practice what they preach?  Will those who practiced rational thought come back to their senses?

Unless the second and third groups do regain a semblance of self-control, rather than self-absorption, they will be the reason we will either lose this election to the enemy or it will be so close the outcome will be delayed and fraud will gain a foothold on the election results. We will witness civil unrest & lawlessness.  What a shame if the very things we have warned each other about do occur because of these infantile reactions.

Holding onto one’s self-centered set of principals and childish misery because of the choices we have ignores the big picture and it’s suicide. Those who refuse to vote for the Republican nominee out of their sense of moral superiority are condoning abortion, treason, communism, freedom to worship and the entire Bill of Rights. Never mind the destruction of our laws, as in the U.S. Constitution, along with abandoning our brave military men and women. This is neither rational nor Christian.

This is what sowing the seeds of I, Me & Myself  will yield for the self-worshipers. Unfortunately, the rest of America will also have to reap what they sow. I have no illusions that the first group are not worth giving much thought to but, the second & third groups do have hope providing they can get out of their own way in time for the all important November 2012 elections. This is the election of a lifetime and, yes, it’s more important than our petty preoccupations and self-serving human natures.

I’d like to add the link to an audio of Mark Levin who is much better at articulating the seriousness of this election and the utter futility of fighting the facts. We either continue our involvement as citizens of this Republic, with the tools we have, or we give up and hand it over to those who desire only her demise.

Olympia Snowe Killer of Freedom

Many of us will have forgotten it was a Republican who foisted Obamacare upon the American people.  Her vote brought it out of committee to the senate floor for a vote.  Had she not voted for this bill, it would have died.  Olympia Snowe’s legacy will forever be the demise of our freedom and government so out of control that it will shackle all generations after us.  The GOP does not have high ground to stand on.  They are the party of the good old boy establishment.  Trent Lott who said,

 “We don’t need a lot of Jim DeMint disciples,” Lott said in an interview. “As soon as they get here, we need to co-opt them.”

It’s easy to see Mr. Lott doesn’t stand with citizens who are tired of being shackled with over spending and regulations.  NO!  He likes keeping his power and burdening the American people as long as he has his.

Lindsey Graham evoked Jesus Christ as his reason for voting for Elena Kagan.  See Michelle Malkin’s article.

Orrin Hatch openly admitted, “I despise these people,” referring to Freedom Works and tea party citizens hoping to remove him from office.  Once again the good old boy mentality rages when they are threatened by the lowly citizen.

The votes giving the President his “traditional right” to have who he wants on the Supreme Court of the United States is an affront to every freedom loving person who lives under the flag of this country.  The senator who votes a freedom killing bill out of committee is an affront to all citizens who love our Founding Fathers and Constitution.

Today America may have died and I see no real help coming from the GOP.  Romney is Obama-lite.  I don’t trust him.  But what is our choice? If we leave Obama in place we will be full-blown Communists by the time he ends his reign.   The GOP will only slow the demise.  The only hope was to remove people like Hatch, Graham, Snowe and those of their ilk.  I don’t hold much hope.

Those who voted for Barack Obama because they wanted to be part of history have done exactly that.  They have become partners with weak-kneed justices and politicians who long ago forgot their oath of offices to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, as written, to protect our Republic.

My neighbors voted for this man.  Now some regret it.  Too late!  You’ve stolen my grandchildrens’ future, freedom, and economic prosperity.

I believe the quote from Scott Horton, in Harper’s Magazine, July 2007 says it well:

As Benjamin Franklin left the Constitutional Convention, on September 18, 1787, a certain Mrs. Powel shouted out to him: “Well, doctor, what have we got?,” and Franklin responded: “A Republic, if you can keep it.” Like many of the Founding Fathers, he was intensely concerned that the democratic institutions they were crafting would deteriorate over time. In particular, they were concerned—and talked ceaselessly during the convention about the risk that, under pressures and exigencies of war, a tyrant would collapse their system into something closer to the monarchy that they had just defeated. Over the intervening 220 years, the republic has maintained itself, though not without close calls. And today, while we face what may be the gravest challenge in the nation’s history, our media will serve up the next chapter in the life of Paris Hilton.

Little did we know the “war” would be within our borders perpetrated by our own government against its citizens.  Olympia Snowe was part of that war against us.  Her legacy of death to this Republic will live on.  Never forget her.  Never forget she cared not for us or our children.  She cared only for power.

“The Most Divisive, Petty, Partisan Hack This Republic Has Seen”

The title of this blog is part of a commentary by Bill Whittle of PJTV’s Afterburner, “The Merchants of Despair.”  I cannot improve upon his succinct analysis of our current President, Barack Obama.  Watching this administration shamefully flaunt lawlessness is like nothing I’ve seen in my life time.  Today the Supreme Court of the United States handed a partial victory to the state of Arizona. Three aspects of the Arizona Immigration law were struck down as preempted authority held by the federal government.  However, one part of the state law, that so riled the Obama administration, was upheld.  Arizona law enforcement can ask for proof of citizenship or legal entry from persons stopped or apprehended for probable cause of violating any law.  This was a another blow to the administration and president Obama in the last week.  SEIU, the biggest union group lost with SCOTUS, Wisconsin kept Scott Walker as their governor despite a recall started by the unions.

Quickly, within three hours of the decision today, Obama and Secretary of Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, pulled their partnership with Arizona and the 287g immigration program.  This President, in essence, has told Arizona “to get lost.”  He does not care about the safety of Arizona citizens.  He does not care that he is breaking federal law and ignoring the Supreme Court.  The Department of Justice has set up a 1-800 number for complaints against officers in Arizona for enforcing the law. Ladies and gentlemen, if he’ll do it to them, he’ll do it you.  Make no mistake about it.

This my fellow citizens is a Constitutional crisis. Only a megalomaniac, not a leader of sovereign nation who took an oath of office to uphold the laws of the land, would act toward citizens the way this President has.  A liberal writer wrote today that Obama has reached the “imperial presidency” like Nixon only hoped to have.

As Bill Whittle says near the beginning of his summary, “This is the most divisive, petty, partisan, hack our Republic has seen.”   I agree, but I add, the MOST DANGEROUS.

This is a sad commentary that people of this country would vote for a man lacking integrity or love for our country and the citizens who built it and pay for it.  America, take a look at yourself. Why have we stooped so low as to allow a man like this as a leader?

God’s Word is so apt for this situation.   Proverbs 29:2 (NKJV)  When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.

Nobody Here Is Wearing A Wig

This is a short interlude in our Defend Rural America series.

Years ago, OK let’s be honest, decades ago my husband and I traveled to Northern California on vacation.  We stopped to visit friends we’ve known since high school.  We decided to go out for dinner.  It was easier on our host and made dinner more relaxing for our short overnight visit.   After dinner our host was not feeling well.  The closest place to take care of what was later diagnosed as food poisoning was the home of their sister and brother-in-law. We visited in the usual manner, catching up after years not communicating much.  Out of the blue, Cara, the eight-year-old daughter of our friends announced, “Nobody here is wearing a wig.”   Their sister and brother-in-law tilted their heads with quizzical looks on their faces as we and our hostess burst into laughter.

As I was preparing for dinner, I refreshed my makeup and put on my wig.   Cara watched as a child does when daddy is shaving.  She looked at me and scanned her mouth with her fingers as if she was zipping it. MUMS the word!  I love the thought processes of a guileless child.

WHY this scenario?

President Barack Obama during this speech at the G20 Summit in France today made a statement that would confound Cara , now a mother of three.  His answer to an AP reporter concerning the stock market and our economy back home was, “There’s no crisis, much of it is psychological.”      TELL THAT TO MY WALLET MR. PRESIDENT.

You and I have recently seen our gasoline and food prices begin to skyrocket.  In my town today a 40z jar of Peanut Butter  was $9.59.  It is a staple for lower-income families to help feed their families and considered one of the top ten items you must have in your cupboard in case of emergencies.  Emergency food, and survival experts say it is a must.   Inflation statistics by our government does NOT include food or gasoline prices.   SO HEY, NOBODY HERE IS WEARING A WIG.  Unemployment figures, psychological; more regulations, psychological; crony capitalism, psychological, Corzine and $700 million missing, psychological.    YEP!  NOBODY HERE IS WEARING WIG!

The average citizen, buying food, traveling to work or the doctor knows the truth just as Cara did.  Anyone knowing me well, knew it was a wig.  It was a facade as is our inflation numbers and the smoke screen Mr. Obama tries to foist upon the citizens who know the truth.  It’s time, like Cara, to blow the cover of the facades and call it for what it is.  A LIE.   Spin is such a nice word.  I’m surprised it wasn’t used in the first garden when Eve encountered the Father of Lies, Lucifer himself.   You know the guy that Saul Alinksky dedicated his book to.

The world is on fire economically, but hey it’s mostly psychological.  Just put your wig back on and continue in what is known as normalcy bias.   We want to continue to think that all is well or will be.  That is normalcy bias.   Like my husband says, it’s time for us to “face the music”.  In other words “BS time is over.”   Somebody here IS wearing a wig and we know who it is.  Those in congress, the white house, political parties, and media pundits are all wearing wigs.  NOTHING TO SEE HERE.  DEFLECT the truth.

My suspicion, the Herman Cain issue a WIG?
