Environmental Protection Agency - A Threat To Our Freedom

Socialist President Obama's Environmental Protection Agency is a clear and present danger to our freedoms and our nation. While CAP & TAX may be dead in Congress with the election of Republicans, the EPA is using existing legislation related to clean air and water to regulate every aspect of the economy and our lives by Executive Order. In the process, the EPA is out to destroy the oil, natural gas, nuclear and coal industries by making it impossible for them to do business in the United States. The end result will be millions of lost jobs, slow or no growth in the United States and a lower standard of living for the American people. We will also see the cost of all energy sources sky rocket as people will not be able to heat their homes in winter and cool their homes in summer. The EPA is the equivalent of the jack booted Gestapo in our country.

The Republicans in Congress have taken a step in the right direction by attempting to cut funds going to the EPA. Of course, Obama will veto any budget that does not fund the EPA. Currently, the EPA has about 12,000 employees and gets about $12 billion a year to make our lives miserable. Clearly, Republicans in the Congress must get the EPA under control and or eliminate the agency entirely. In addition, EPA dictatorial actions must be challenged in court at every turn. We are dealing with a federal government under Obama that is simply out of control as the EPA is a real threat to our freedoms and way of life.

WE THE PEOPLE need to veto Obama and the other Socialists in office in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real energy, education and health care reform, a strong national defense including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and jobs in our country. In the process, we must get rid of the EPA, the gestapo agency, once and for all.

Most important, we must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives, who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, environmental wackos, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country, which means reining in the power of the EPA, or eliminating this agency altogether. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Obama's 2012 Budget - More Taxes and Deficit Spending

Socialist President Obama's 2012 proposed budget is a real job killer. In addition to more than $1.1 trillion in deficit spending, which will add to the National Debt, there are $357 billion in general business tax increases, over the next ten years, that will destroy jobs. Those tax increases include: $129 billion that threaten the ability for American companies to compete in a global economy, $53 billion in changes to accounting laws, $21 billion in onerous new reporting and compliance requirements, $15 billion in new taxes on investment partnerships, $30 billion in a new bank tax, $46 billion in various energy taxes, $14 billion in new taxes on life insurance. In addition, Obama's 2012 budget includes over a trillion dollars of tax increases over ten years on individuals and successful small businesses that include $700 billion raised from raising marginal tax rates, increasing investment taxes and limiting certain deductions and $321 billion from reinstatement of the limit on itemized deductions.

In all, Obama's 2012 budget proposal would raise taxes by an additional $1.378 trillion over ten years.
And that might be OK if it resulted in a balanced budget and finally paying off the current $15 trillion National Debt; but if Obama is allowed to continue bankrupting our country, we would also continue to see trillion dollar annual deficits for years to come. In fact, it is projected that the National Debt will continue to grow to $23 trillion in the next ten years if the Obama trajectory is allowed to continue. WE THE PEOPLE just can't let any of this happen. To stop it, clearly we have to make Obama a one term President and further sweep the rest of the Socialists that are bankrupting our country out of government in 2012 and 2014.

When we go to the polls in 2012 and 2014, we have to clean house by electing Conservatives
that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to prevent the bankruptcy of our nation and restore economic growth and jobs in our country again.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014, starting with the defeat of Obama, the most dangerous and reckless President in our history. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Gas Prices Going Up - Unemployment Still High

Years ago, when Jimmy Carter ran for President, a term was coined called the Misery Index. It consisted of adding the unemployment rate to the inflation rate. Today, when Socialist President Obama runs for reelection, the Misery Index will be the unemployment rate, which is projected to be above 8% and the price of gasoline, which is heading toward $5 a gallon. If unemployment remains high in 2012 and gas is over $4 a gallon, Obama will be a one term President. Obama wants the cost of energy to rise to deal with "global warming". In fact, the Obama Administration is doing all it can to prevent the development of feasible energy sources in the US. This is going to lead to slow growth and a lower standard of living for all Americans.

Obama's failure to properly create an Energy Independence Plan for the US will result in high unemployment for years to come. When all are counted that are out of work, those unemployed, those that are under employed working part time that want full time work, those that have fallen off unemployment benefits and those that have just given up looking for work, real unemployment in the US is well over 17%. While Obama did not create the financial crisis, his misdirected Socialist policies have prolonged the misery. We need cheap energy to grow our economy, not more expensive energy, since energy ties to virtually every endeavor. It is astounding that the Socialists just don't understand this fact of life.

The only way to restore economic growth and job creation again in America is to sweep these Socialists out of office in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real energy, education and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only was to get our economy back on track and create jobs again. None of this will happen as long as Obama is President so he has to go!

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. If gas prices and unemployment are high in 2012, it will demonstrate Obama's complete failure so it will be bye bye time for Obama as we take back our country. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

A Government Shut Down - Stop The Silly Games

The Republicans in the House of Representatives have passed a budget with a measly $61 Billion cut in expenses, which really is just symbolic. This amount is peanuts. President Obama and his Socialist supporters in Congress actually want no cut at all. The Socialist want trillions of dollars in deficit spending for years to come pushing our country toward bankruptcy. The budget passed by the House is now sitting with Senator Dirty Harry Reid in the Senate, the Majority leader. Reid of course tows the Socialist Party line and so there is a threat of a "government shut down" if agreement can't be reached between the House, Senate and President. Frankly, the cuts they are arguing about are so small that they are inconsequential; but it makes for good TV on the talk shows.

The Socialists are hoping to replay the drama between Newt Gingrich and Bill Clinton when the government was shut down because budget agreement could not be reached. At the time, supposedly the Republicans were blamed for the shut down. So now the game is which party will be blamed if the government is shut down rather than responsible action to cut the deficit. What all seem to miss in this discussion is that many of us don't care if the government is shut down. We would actually prefer to see the government shut down. It is only those on the dole that worry about a government shut down. And, the Socialists, including the President, completely missed the results of the election in 2010. WE THE PEOPLE want the trillion dollar deficit spending, that is bankrupting our country, to stop.

It is time to stop all the games and eliminate redundant government departments, agencies and programs entirely. As a good down payment, there should be at least $500 billion in cuts to demonstrate that our elected representatives of both parties are serious and get the message. And while many conclude that this can only be done by tackling entitlements like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, we have yet to see one single department, agency or program eliminated. The budget for the Department of Education alone is $77 billion and that is one Department that should be on the chopping block.

The Socialists, including the President, will never stop the trillion deficit spending, which is an important reason we must sweep them all of office in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives (not RINO's) that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real energy, education and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and jobs in our country. If these things don't happen, it is estimated that unemployment will remain high until 2016.

Most important, we must stop the silly games by electing Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We have to take back our country to stop the silly games and get our fiscal house in order. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Middle East Instability Is Dangerous

As we see popular uprisings in the Middle East, we should be very concerned. Hopefully, some of these Arab countries will end up as democracies, or there is a pretty good chance that they could end up as evil regimes as occurred in Iran after their revolution. There is no tradition of Western democracy in the Arab world since all of these countries have been ruled by dictators for centuries. Iraq is a democracy only because the United States made it so. However, that story is not yet over. Time will tell if democracy in Iraq will prevail. Our country needs to plan for the worst and hope for the best for two very important reasons, Israel and Oil.

The United States has been a staunch supporter of Israel since its founding in 1948. In fact, it is fair to say that without our support and tacit protection, there probably would not be an Israel today. That said, the Israeli people have built a truly beautiful and remarkable first world country despite being surrounded by enemies and the need to fight several wars since their founding to protect their nation. There is poverty, misery and a lack of freedom all over the Middle East throughout the Arab and Persian world, yet Israel is a stable democracy with a relatively high standard of living based on free market capitalism. And, the entire country really should be a World Heritage Site since the foundation for three major religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, is in Israel.

The United States can never falter in our support of Israel because they are our only stable ally in the region that shares our values based on Judeo Christian traditions. As such, if Israel decides to become a nuclear power, which is justifiable to maintain the balance of power in the region, we should be there to help. And or, the United States should make it clear that the US nuclear umbrella shields Israel too in order to make it very clear to Iran that an attack upon Israel is an attack upon the United States.

Though Socialist President Obama lives in an energy dream world filled with wind mills, the fact is that since the environmental wackos in the United States have to date prevented our country from becoming energy independent, we will be dependent on Oil from the Middle East for years to come. As such, we must do what is necessary to protect those supply lines no matter who comes to power in the Middle East. However, it should be clear by the uprising in the Middle East that the instability there is dangerous to our country and our economy. We are likely to see gas at $5 a gallon in the next few years and the cost of all energy will go up because President Obama and the other Socialists in our government refuse to allow the United States to fully develop all the energy sources in our country.

What we are seeing in the Middle East today should be a wake up call to all Americans. It is time for a 50 year plan to make the United States fully energy independent, which means developing nuclear, natural gas, clean coal, oil shale, drilling for more oil in the US and finally working on wind, solar and bio fuels that are not economically feasible today. We have to do it all to insure our standard of living and economic security. President Obama and the other Socialists in office refuse to do any of this, which is another reason we must sweep these characters out of office in 2012 and 2014. Socialists are simply a clear and present danger to our national security.

As such, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real ENERGY, education and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only was to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

Most important, we must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country, which includes pursuing real energy independence to maintain our standard of living and great nation status. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Republican Governors Leading The Way

Newly elected Republican Governors, Walker of Wisconsin, Kasich of Ohio, McDonnell of Virginia, Christie of New Jersey, Scott of Florida and Daniels of Indiana are leading the way to fiscal sanity. And in doing so, it is very possible that there is a President among them. Clearly, since states cannot print money and another federal bail out is not going to happen with the Republicans in charge of the House of Representatives, these state Governors are facing fiscal reality. You can't squeeze blood out of a rock. Republicans Governors also recognize that competition is global. US corporate income taxes are already among the highest in the world so raising them further, as advocated by many Socialists, will just push more jobs overseas. Republican Governors realize that the only hope for their states are lower taxes and less regulation to grow jobs and cutting government spending, which means dealing with the public employee unions that are bankrupting our country.

It is both refreshing and a good sign that maybe, just maybe the people in our nation have finally elected some responsible politicians, tough enough to deal with the problems that we face. The same cannot be said for President Obama and the other Socialists in government that just refuse to see the forest for the trees. Cards talk and numbers don't lie. Trillion dollar federal government deficits with no end in sight will bankrupt our country. Adding to our $14 trillion National Debt, which is occurring under Obama by the minute, has got to stop. The Socialists in government will bankrupt our country if WE THE PEOPLE don't sweep them all of office in 2012 and 2014. President Obama has proven that he is fiscally irresponsible. It is as though as part of Obama's drive to "transform" our nation into a Socialist Republic, Obama is intentionally attempting to bankrupt our country. Since the President is book smart, though he has not learned the lessons of history or Economics 101, what other explanation can there be for his reckless policies and deficit spending?

Enough is enough!! All should look to these Republican Governors for our model as we elect more Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 who will adhere to our Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 to restore fiscal sanity. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Obama's Czars - Fire Them All

Socialist President Obama has appointed 39 Czars, the most ever, costing millions of dollars a year to act as a redundant shadow government under his complete control. This has been done by most Presidents, often to avoid the Senate confirmation process; but Obama has taken this practice to new levels. Republicans in Congress are attempting to defund all of these Czars. Rather than use the 15 cabinet officers to run the government, as is authorized by the Constitution subject to Congressional oversight and scrutiny, these Czars function as little dictators issuing regulations through Executive Order. Obama is using these Czars to dramatically expand the power of the federal government intruding into every aspect of our lives. WE THE PEOPLE must stand up to say FIRE THEM ALL by supporting Republicans attempt to defund them all.

As we celebrate President's Day, we have grown from 4 federal cabinet offices, when the country was founded, to 15 today. Many of these cabinet offices are already redundant and should be combined and or eliminated to cut costs. The last thing we need are 39 Czars duplicating the work of these cabinet offices. Obama and the other Socialists in office will never act to reduce the size of government, which has grown by more than 200,000 employees since Obama was elected. If we continue on as proposed by Obama, we will see trillion dollar deficits, each year indefinitely, which will bankrupt our country. The government now spends 42 cents of every dollar spent in America. This is just crazy.

We have to take back our country by sweeping Socialists, including President Obama, out of office in 2012 and 2014 to prevent the bankruptcy of our country. We must elect Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only was to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country, which mean firing Obama's 39 Czars. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Obama - Union Organizer and Chief

Socialist President Obama has called out his cronies in the Democratic National Committee and Organizing For America, his political lackeys to assist the public employee unions in Wisconsin with their fight against Governor Scott Walker's initiative to reign in the unions and make them pay a few dollars for their pension and medical benefits. This is happening because the public employee unions have told Obama, in no uncertain terms, that if they are unable to win the battle in Wisconsin, since it would have national implications, that he will not get the typical $400 million in public employee union campaign contributions in 2012 for his Presidential campaign. Whose bread you eat, whose song you sing. And, Obama is singing the union song like a canary. Let's face it. President Obama is not the President representing all people of the United States; but rather Obama is the President of his PEEP's; the 50% of the people who pay no federal income taxes as all, those on welfare, illegal aliens and the 7,000,000 members of public employee unions.

In fact, Obama is on the side of the table of the public employee unions that are bankrupting our country at both the state and federal levels rather than representing the interests of the American people. The Republicans want to cut federal spending by a measly $61 billion in 2011, which is pennies of the $1.65 trillion deficit in 2011; yet Obama and the Socialists are opposed to any meaningful cuts. President Obama is actually on the payroll of the public employee unions. The $400,000 a year that the President is paid in salary by taxpayers is peanuts when compared to the $400 million Obama will get in campaign contributions to support is campaign in 2012.

Enough is enough! We cannot get our fiscal house in order as long as the public employee unions have the right of collective bargaining. We will continue to have corruption in politics as long as the public employee unions are allowed to donate hundred of millions of dollars to Socialists that are owned lock, stock and barrel by the public employee unions. This is vicious cycle that must be broken. Republicans and the American people must break the back of the public employee unions if we are ever going to take back our country and that means an end to collective bargaining and union political contributions.

And, the only way that is going to happen is if we sweep these Socialists, including the President, out of office in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives that support limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country, which includes getting rid of collective bargain for public employee unions. We can do it. We must do to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Public Employee Unions - Greed and Corruption

Public Employee Unions, which now have the bulk of union members in the United States, have been feeding at the trough for years. The game is simple. Take union dues and use them to support Socialist candidates for office, at all levels of government, that will then provide public employees with higher compensation and benefits than are typical in the private sector. Collective bargaining has been used to extract pensions and other benefits that are unsustainable. The Public Employee Union answer to everything is higher taxes to pay their members higher and higher salaries and benefits so that they can contribute union dues. Well, the party is over. The balloon has burst. Many states and the federal government are bankrupt.

Socialist President Obama just submitted another budget for 2012 with a $1.1 trillion (not billion) dollar deficit. The federal government has grown by more than 200,000 employees since Obama came into office, which should be no surprise because Obama is owned, lock, stock and barrel by the Public Employee Unions. Obama is just paying back is crony supporters. And, there is now a war going on in many states. Either the people will regain control of their state, through their elected representatives, as is happening in Wisconsin, or the Public Employee Unions will continue to dominate the state stealing from the taxpayers to fulfill their greed and corruption. Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin told President Obama to mind his own business, like maybe trying to balance the federal budget, rather than meddle in the affairs of Wisconsin. In addition, it is time that WE THE PEOPLE take back our states and our country by saying HELL NO to the Public Employee Unions.

Collective Bargaining should be eliminated for Public Employee Unions. The ability for Public Employee Unions to contribute to political campaigns should be ILLEGAL because it is a conflict of interest. Public employees should not have the right to strike. And, public employees should not receive compensation and benefits that are any better than what is common in the private sector. If that is not fair, then public employees are free to work anywhere else they want. Specific to what is happening in Wisconsin as state employees and teachers are calling in sick to protest in the streets, they should be FIRED.

President Ronald Reagan got it exactly right when he fired the air traffic controllers years ago for striking and making demands that were not sustainable. WE THE PEOPLE have had enough!! Since Socialists will never confront the Public Employee Unions that own them, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Public Employee Unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country, which means confronting the Public Employees Unions as is happening in many states. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

War On The Border With Mexico

Socialist President Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano apparently do not realize that we are fighting a war on our border with Mexico and the Mexican drug cartel is winning. Just recently an American ICE Agent was murdered and another was wounded just across the border by the drug cartel. A federal agency has concluded that we only control 44% of our border with Mexico. That means that the drug cartel controls the other 56% of the border between Mexico and the United States. This is outrageous!!

While we can't fire Obama until 2012, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano should be FIRED. Napolitano is simply incompetent. This woman, who should know better, since she was the former Governor of Arizona, lives in another universe. It is clear that President Obama has no intention of securing our border with Mexico because in the end the Socialist Party led by Obama really wants to give amnesty to illegal aliens in the United States to turn them into Socialist voters so that Socialists can stay in power in 2012 and beyond.

It is time to station the army on our border. Ironically, we send our army to Iraq and Afghanistan to bring freedom to those countries and defeat Terrorists. Yet, we have Terrorists, in the form of the drug cartel operating on both sides of our border with Mexico. 34,000 people have been murdered by the drug cartel in Mexico, as well as dozens of Americans along our border. Enough is enough! We can secure our border with Mexico; but it will require a double fence the entire 2,000 miles length of our border with Mexico and troops with the authority to shoot to kill if challenged on our border. This job can no longer be done by border guards, or local law enforcement. Only the American army stationed on the border can secure our border. This is a national security issue. The President of the United States is the Commander and Chief sworn to preserve and protect our nation. If Obama refuses to abide by his oath of office, he should resign.

Clearly, the war on the border with Mexico is one more reason we must make Obama a one term President and elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, real energy, education and health care reform, a strong national defense, including SECURING OUR BORDER AND FIGHTING TERRORISM, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country. We cannot balance our budget and get our fiscal house in order until we secure our border and prevent illegal aliens from entering in our country that require support. We just can't afford the hundreds of billions of dollars spent each year on drug enforcement and illegal aliens any more; yet Obama will not act to deal with the problem.

As a result, we have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives, who will act to preserve and protect our country and who will adhere to our Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current, or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country and secure our border. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Governor Scott Walker & Public Employee Unions

Recently elected Republican Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin, in a common sense approach, is taking on the public employee unions in his state to balance the budget, rather than raise taxes. Walker is working with a Republican controlled legislature to limit collective bargaining rights for state employees and to mandate employee pension contributions of 5.8% and an increase in the average cost of medical insurance premiums contributions from 6% to just 12%. Governor Walker is simply trying to bring public employee compensation and benefits more in line with what occurs in the private sector rather than bankrupt the state of Wisconsin. So of course the unions are protesting in the streets so Governor Walker has made it very clear that he will send in the National Guard to restore order, if needed.

This is exactly what needs to happen all over the United States. Public employees should not have the right to collective bargaining at all because political contributions to elected representatives make it a conflict of interest; really nothing more than millions in bribes to elect their cronies. Public employees should be governed by Civil Service Commissions appointed by Governors and composed of business men and women working in the private sector. In fact, compensation and benefits for public employees should be tied to what is typical in the private sector that is paying all the bills. Why on earth should any public sector employee receive benefits far in excess of what exists in the private sector? This has to stop because the unions are bankrupting our country!

Now we have Republican Governors like Christie in New Jersey, Walker in Wisconsin, Kasich in Ohio, McDonnell in Virginia and Scott in Florida that are standing up to the public employee unions to properly represent the people of their states. This just shows that the only way to make any progress in our country and get our fiscal house in order is to sweep these Socialists out of office, at the state and federal level that are owned lock, stock and barrel by the public employee unions. We must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 to take back our country that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014, which means ending domination by public employee unions. We can do it. We must do it preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Obama's 2012 Budget - Another $1.1 Trillion Deficit

Socialist President Obama just doesn't get it. In November, 2010 American voters booted Socialists out of office, at both the federal and state levels, in historic record numbers to say HELL NO to Obama and all his Socialist Schemes and trillion dollar deficits. Apparently, President Obama did not get the message as indicated by the budget he just submitted to Congress. That budget if ever enacted represents $3.7 trillion of spending and $1.1 trillion in deficit spending. Of course, it will be even more because Obama's budget is predicated on higher projected revenue than has been predicted by the Congressional Budget Office. Since the deficit this year is going to exceed $1.6 trillion, it is likely that Obama's 2012 proposed budget will result in the same, or higher deficit. And, Obama's 2012 budget will create a trajectory over ten years of $8.7 trillion in new spending and $13 trillion added to our current $14 trillion National Debt. These numbers are staggering and unsustainable. This is insane!!

Obama's budget proposal should be DEAD ON ARRIVAL. Any member of Congress, Republican or Socialist that votes for this budget deficit should be recalled from office for out right malfeasance. In fact, it is time to draw a line in the sand. In March, it will be necessary for Congress to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling to allow the federal government to keep borrowing to fund the budget and this deficit spending. There is no way that any responsible member of Congress should vote to raise that the debt ceiling unless there is a balanced budget Constitutional Amendment as part of the bargain and there is a plan in place to both end deficit spending and pay down our $14 trillion National Debt. The party is over; but Socialists and some establishment Republicans in Washington have a spending monkey on their backs making it impossible for them to break their deficit spending habits.

These politicians are bankrupting our nation. In Obama's case, it is starting to look like it is part of his Socialist Scheme to transform our nation into a Socialist Republic. WE THE PEOPLE must stand up and say HELL NO. If our elected representatives won't act to preserve and protect our nation, then it is time for a Constitutional Convention to take back some of the powers we have granted our elected representatives. If these politicians are not going to get our fiscal house in order, then we have to take back the powers we have granted them. Like in Egypt, millions of Americans may need to protest in the streets of our nation to get our message across once and for all.

After seeing Obama's big government, higher taxes, deficit spending, budget proposal, it is clear that we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 to take back our country and stop the fiscal insanity. We must elect Conservatives that support free market capitalism, lower taxes and less regulations, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014, (not RINO's) who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Looming Budget Battle - Fight To Secure Our Nation

Socialist President Obama is proposing budget cuts that amount to pennies if we can believe the numbers. The President claims that his cuts will save $1.1 trillion over ten years. Well how nice!! The budget deficit in 2011 alone will be more than $1.5 trillion. If the Congress enacted Obama's freeze over the next five years, we would see trillion dollars deficits continue each year for years to come. And, further if Obama's irresponsible plan is put in place, the National Debt will grow from the current $14 trillion to more than $22 trillion over the next ten years. And, ObamaCare, built on smoke an mirror numbers, will not produce any savings at all. Instead, many believe ObamaCare will add more than $2 trillion to the National Debt in the next ten years. It is almost as though the President is purposefully trying to bankrupt our country as part of his plan to "transform" our nation into a Socialist Republic.

WE THE PEOPLE must stand up and say HELL NO to Socialism, HELL NO to ObamaCare and Cap and Tax and HELL NO to more irresponsible deficit spending!!
Even the Republican proposal to cut spending by $100 billion, though a measly start, is not enough. It is time to eliminate whole departments, agencies and many worthless programs to cut spending by $500 billion or more this year and put the country on a debt free trajectory. Remember, we are still facing trillion dollar deficits, each year, for the next ten years if common sense does not prevail.

Let's first get rid of the federal Department of Education, which will save billions.
That does not necessarily mean cutting federal monies going to school districts, though that too should be scrutinized, but rather getting rid of a redundant bureaucracy that has does nothing to improve education in America. Other Departments of the 15 now in place can be consolidated and downsized to save billions more. The EPA, which many are now calling the Employment Prevention Agency should be defunded entirely. Certainly some valid functions of the Environmental Protection Agency can be handled by the Department of the Interior. The federal bureaucracy is simply out of control. We have got to starve the beast to get deficit spending under control.

Of course, President Obama and the other Socialists in Washington and the states will never agree to any of this because they are owned lock stock and barrel by the public employee unions, which a key reason we must sweep them all out of office in 2012 and 2014.
Socialists in Washington and in the states are a clear and present danger to our nation. Let's throw the bums out office and force them to get real jobs. In order to take our nation back, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Government Shut Down - A Good Thing

Socialist President Obama wants to freeze the federal budget at an all time high of spending, which he and the Socialists in Congress enacted in the last two years. If Obama's plan was allowed to go forward, it would mean trillion dollar deficits for years to come and the bankrupcy of our nation. Instead, the Republicans want to cut spending by a measly $100 billion; though there is talk about pushing spending back to 2008 pre-Obama levels. Of course, this is peanuts and will never result in a balanced budget in any case. However, Obama and the Socialists in Congress will not even agree to the $100 Billion cut in spending proposed by the Republicans. So a show down is looming that could result in a government shut down.

The fact is that with the exception of funding the military, we need to shut the government down to force and end to trillion dollar deficit spending. The reality is that the government must learn to live within its means by not spending more money than it takes in. To get there, more than a trillion dollars must be cut in federal government spending in 2011 and going forward. That means eliminating many programs, departments, agencies, ObamaCare etc. etc. etc. The vast majority of the American people, those who pay taxes, who are not on the dole, or otherwise receiving government subsidies, bail outs etc will not even notice the cuts. Those living off the fat of the land, or who otherwise benefit from Crony Capitalism might have to stand on their own two feet rather than depend on the rest of us for their sustenance. This will be good for America since dependency only makes our country and our people weaker.

We need to cut a trillion or more dollars in federal spending each year to starve the beast and shrink the federal government so that we have limited government, as was intended by our Founding Fathers, rather than big government intrusion into every aspect of our lives. Of course, Obama and the other Socialists in Washington will never agree to these cuts in spending, which is just one more reason we must make Obama a one term President in 2012. We must also elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014, sweeping Socialists out of office at all levels of government, that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

Most important, we need to elect Conservatives to take back our country, who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014. We can do it . We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren. So let's shut the government down to get spending under control. Life will go on and we will all be better off if it happens.

Military Coup - Mubarak Gone - Now What

There has been a military coup in Egypt forcing President Hosni Mubarak to resign. This is really no surprise since the military has in fact ruled Egypt either directly, or indirectly since 1952. The people of Egypt are jubilant; but the question is why? It remains to be seen if their protests in the streets will result in real democracy in Egypt since there is no tradition of Western style democracy in the Middle East anywhere except for in Israel. While the protests in the streets make for good television, the likely outcome may not be good. Remember, we saw this same euphoric story in Iran when the Shah of Iran was deposed and Iran is an Islamic dictatorship today. There is at least a 50/50 chance that a dictatorship will arise once again in Egypt once the dust settles.

In the mean time, the military in Egypt is in control as all other elements of government, except the court system, have been eliminated. The real question is will elections in Egypt go forward next September on schedule, or will the military find some excuse to delay elections. Again, the likelihood is that elections will be delayed, which actually could be a good thing if the delay is used to write a new Constitution based on democratic principles. We shall see. Almost more important, is what will occur outside of Egypt as a result of this uprising.

First, Israel should plan for the worst and hope for the best. That means that Israel should assume that sooner or later they could have a hostile Egypt on their border. If it does not happen, terrific; but Israel should never base their foreign policy on the best case scenario. As it is now, Israel faces a hostile Lebanon and Syria on its border financed by Iran. If Jordon falls to Islamic fundamentalists, which is possible as a result of what has happened in Egypt, then Israel could find itself surrounded by hostile nations on all sides. The only response to that scenario must be a nuclear deterrent since Iran will have nuclear weapons some time soon and as long as Obama is President, Israel cannot count on the United States to guarantee its defense.

Other Arab countries in the US, ruled by dictators that are allies of the US, must be terrified by what has happened in Egypt. Obama quickly sold out Mubarak, which has demonstrated to them that they can't count on the US, or more particularly Obama. This could cause these regimes to become even more repressive to insure their survival, which is a double edged sword. Rather than become more democratic in the Western tradition, these Arab regimes are likely to become even more dictatorial. Why should we care? The answer is one word, OIL. While we would hope that all countries in the world were Jeffersonian democracies, the reality is that some times the United States is better off dealing with dictators subject to bribery, oh I mean foreign aide, to support our interests. The last thing we need are more Iran's controlling our oil supply, which could be a likely outcome if Middle East style democracy is allowed to prevail.

Finally, another outcome from the revolution in Egypt is likely to be a push for more government control over the Internet throughout the world. China already controls what happens on the Internet using about a million government employees to censor the Internet. The revolution in Egypt has proven the power of the Internet and Social Networking. One of the first things Hosni Mubarak attempted to do when the protests in the streets began was to shut down the Internet because it was used as the basis for organization of the protests. Mubarak only partially succeeded; but having seen this end result, governments now will seek a sure proof way to shut down the Internet when faced with a "national emergency". Socialist President Obama wants that power even now. WE THE PEOPLE must stand up and say HELL NO to Obama. Mr. President, keep your trigger finger off the Internet. It is covered by the First Amendment to the US Constitution governing freedom of speech.

Now if only protests in the US could force Obama to resign. Oh well, I guess we will have to be content with making Obama a one term President in 2012 through the electoral process. The Tea Party Movement is a second American Revolution. Our goal is to push back 98 years of Socialism that began with enactment of a Constitutional Amendment, by Socialist President Woodrow Wilson in 1913, allowing for a federal income tax to redistribute income.

We now must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 to take back our nation that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country. We must protest in the streets at the ballot box to sweep these Socialists out of office to bring back common sense to our nation.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014, who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Medicare Is In Big Trouble

Socialist President Obama and the Socialists in Congress that enacted ObamaCare, without a single Republican vote, cut Medicare by more than $500 Billion in a redistribution of income scheme to fund health insurance for the poor. This cut will result in Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals that are so low that many are refusing to take Medicare patients. In addition, ObamaCare will eliminate the Medicare HMO Advantage Program for million of senior citizens in the next few years requiring Seniors who can afford it to buy Medigap insurance, costing several hundred dollars a month, to get the same coverage they have now. Since most Seniors who opted for Medicare Advantage did so because they could not afford Medigap insurance, they will see a major cut in benefits instead.

This is all happening as 70 million Baby Boomers begin to retire in 2011. In fact, 10,000 Baby Boomers a day will turn 65 in 2011 making them fully eligible for Medicare. This is a national disaster happening before our eyes. Senior citizens who paid into Medicare all their lives are likely to see rationing of care if for no other reason than there will not be enough doctors willing to take Medicare payments to meet their needs. And, Yes, there will be Death Panels in the future that will deny certain procedures to older Senior citizens. All of this is inevitable because of the regulations being written by the Department of Health and Human Services to administer ObamaCare.

Senior citizens should be mad as hell. In many ways, it is Senior Citizens who will be paying for ObamaCare by a cut in their benefits. Socialist President Obama keeps saying that ObamaCare is a done deal. To that we must all say HELL NO by making Obama a one term President in 2012. ObamaCare can be repealed; but not as long as Obama is President. So, in 2012 and 2014 we must elect Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and HEALTH CARE reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country. To get rid of ObamaCare, we have to sweep these Socialists out of office as our highest priority.

Most important, we must take back our country by electing Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country to end ObamaCare. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Ben Bernanke & President Obama Have It All Wrong

Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve Chairman is printing money to buy Treasury Bonds to fund massive trillion dollar deficits. In fact, Bernanke plans to buy another $600 Billion in Treasury Bonds. This is happening for a two reasons. First, there are not enough private investors willing to buy bonds, which is sign that the markets see the US National Debt at $14 Trillion and growing as dangerous. Second, Bernanke knows that Republican control of the House of Representatives means that the days of Congressional spending like drunken sailors is over. So, Bernanke is attempting to pump more money into the economy to stimulate job creation.

The problem is that this Keynesian economic approach has not worked. Clearly, if Keynesian economics was effective, Socialist President Obama's SwindleUS Plans and trillions in deficit spending, that is bankrupting our country, would have resulted in job creation by now. Cards talk and numbers don't lie. Since we have not seen meaningful job creation from Obama's Socialist Schemes, we can conclude conclusively that government intervention to prime the pump does not work because at the same time Obama has imposed new regulations on the private sector, which are pushing more jobs overseas.

All Ben Bernanke is doing by printing money is causing inflation as the dollar becomes worth less. Bernanke claims inflation is not a problem. Oh really!! Has Bernanke bought gas lately, or been to a grocery store? Since Bernanke is undoubtedly driven around in a government paid car by a chauffeur, Bernanke may not realize that in many parts of the country gas is approaching $4 a gallon. And, we can assume Bernanke hasn't been to a grocery store lately either. The price of food is skyrocketing. Yes, it is true that mortgage interest rates are low and home prices are still falling; but buying a house is not an everyday purchase. Buying gas, milk and bread is an everyday purchase. Since Bernanke is destroying the dollar by printing money, Americans must use more disposable income to buy the basics and as such for many families there is little left for other discretionary purchases; hence the reason we are not seeing job growth in our country.

Ben Bernanke claims it will take years for our country to achieve economic recovery. That is the case because the dynamic duo of President Obama and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke have it all wrong. Their policies are all based on big government, Keynesian economics, which has failed all over the world. To create the 300,000 - 500,ooo jobs a month needed to bring down unemployment, Obama needs to cut taxes and eliminate regulations and just allow the free market to work. In other words, Obama and Bernanke need to get out of the way and end command economics that have never produced prosperity any where in the world.

And, we need a 50 year energy plan that reduces the cost of energy rather than Obama's plan to increase the cost of energy. Since Obama never learned the lessons of history or Economics 101, the United States will continue to have high unemployment and slow growth as long as Obama is President. Obama just does not get any of this, which is the reason must make him a one term President.

The elections of 2012 and 2014 are critical. To achieve economic growth and job creation once again, we must sweep these Socialists, including Obama, out of office by electing Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and jobs in our country.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. Clearly, we must take back our country in 2012 and 2014. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Obama Blames Business Again

Socialist President Obama claims that he has put in place an ideal America to create jobs. Oh really!! While Obama believes his SwindleUS Plans, that have added to the $14 Trillion in national debt, have created a million or more jobs, which remain to be seen by the rest of us, the President asserts that the private sector has failed to create jobs in the United States. It is true that the private sector is sitting on two trillion dollars or more in cash, but the reality is that jobs are created by the private sector based on the profit motive not some pie in the sky social engineering. Clearly, ObamaCare and additional financial regulations, imposed by Obama, have resulted in job losses. If only the President had learned the lessons of history and Economics 101.

The private sector today is global. Money is mobile and can be invested anywhere in the world that will achieve the highest return on investment. That is just how is it in free market capitalism. Since Obama came into office, Obamanistas in his Administration have used Executive Orders to add all sorts of regulations and cost of doing business in the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency is busy destroying the current and only feasible energy industry in our country. Instead of implementing a 50 year Energy Plan that makes use of all current sources of energy, namely oil, clean coal, natural gas, oil shale and nuclear, Obama continues to regulate these industries making it more difficult and costly for them to do business, while subsidizing the energy sources of the future like wind, solar and bio fuels that are not feasible today.

This is resulting in the loss of millions of jobs in the US because we need cheaper energy to create jobs not more expensive energy. Shortly, we will see gas at $4 - $5 a gallon. That higher cost will be passed on in higher cost for all goods and services, which are already rising. If people have to pay more for energy and things like food, they will not have the disposable income to buy other things like houses and more jobs will be lost. Remember, for better or worse, the US is a consumer driven economy based on disposable income. If Americans have less disposable income, our standard of living will fall. It is just that simple and it is Economics 101,

Socialist President Obama, as an idealogue who has never worked in the real world, just does not get any of this, which is why we must make him a one term President in 2012. We must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country. These Socialists just don't get it, so we must sweep them out of power sooner than later.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former President, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives who understand Economics 101. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Obama & The US Chamber of Commerce

Socialist President Obama, in his attempt to move to the center, recently spoke before the US Chamber of Commerce. In his speech, Obama attempted to justify his Socialist agenda including ObamaCare and the myriad of job killing regulations imposed by the Obama Administration on business. The Chamber reception was respectful; but cool to say the least. Obama is a tax and spend Socialist, who supports big government intrusion into every aspect of our lives. As a National Socialist, Obama supports Crony Capitalism, where in which government picks winners and losers by implementing various bail outs and subsidies and by regulating industries out of favor. While it is true that many large corporations that are members of the Chamber of Commerce benefit from Crony Capitalism, they make up only about 5% of Chamber Members. The vast majority of US Chamber of Commerce Members, the other 95%, across the country are small businesses, with a 100 employees or less.

As such, the Chamber of Commerce must be mindful of the interests of the majority of its Members before becoming too cozy with President Obama, who is generally an enemy to American business. Our goal is to make Obama a one term President and to fully take over the Congress in 2012 by electing Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country. None of these these things will happen as long as Obama is President and Socialists are in power. As such, the Chamber of Commerce, which does have to play the game in Washington, should remain mindful of our overall goals.

Most important, we must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must push for fundamental change in 2012 and 2014 by sweeping these Socialists out of office. And, there can be no more compromise with Socialists. That must stop too. We must take back our country. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren. The US Chamber of Commerce got it right during the elections of 2010. We now need to make sure that the Chamber does not go wobbly kneed just because Obama gave a good speech and has a nice smile. Obama is still the same left wing Socialist he always was before the 2010 elections. Nothing has changed.

Obama & Egypt - Another Iran In The Making

Socialist President Obama is an amateur when it comes to foreign policy just like Jimmy Carter. In fact, in many ways, Obama is Jimmy Carter II. Remember it was Carter's failed policy that resulted in the Ayatollahs taking over Iran and the American hostage crisis. We are seeing Obama's ineffectiveness and mismanagement related to Egypt and it is looking more and more like Iran II. Yes, Hosni Mubarak, the President/Dictator in charge of Egypt and his family probably do have to go; but that should not be done by the President through public pronouncements. Behind the scenes negotiations should be happening to allow Mubarak a face saving way to leave Egypt.

Of course, it is estimated that Mubarak is worth $70 Billion, much of which is stashed in secret bank accounts, which is no surprise since this is business as usual for most Arab rulers who live off the fat of their land. In addition, Mubarak owns homes all over the world so it is not like he doesn't have a place to go after leaving Egypt. Forget about Mubarak. While the next Egyptian government will no doubt attempt to recover some of the monies he as has stolen, the real issue is what comes next in Egypt.

Egypt is the largest Arab country in the Middle East with 80 million people. The US bought peace between Egypt and Israel by giving Egypt $50 Billion in the last 30 years a lot of which went right into Mubarak's bank accounts. It is what it is. Once Mubarak, our "friend" for a price leaves the scene, it is likely that the Muslim Brotherhood, a Terrorist organization will fill the void. The good news is that Egyptians are Sunni Arabs, rather than Shias, the Iranian variety and presumably less radical; however, the Muslim Brotherhood is tied to Al Queda, both haters of America and Israel. If the Muslim Brotherhood gains control of Egypt, which is likely to happen because of Obama's incompetence, there is no hope for democracy in Egypt and peace with Israel will fall apart. Israel then will be surrounded by Hezbollah Terrorists in Lebanon and the Syrians both funded by Iran. With a hostile Egypt on Israel's other border and in view of Iran's nuclear ambitions, Israel will be forced to deploy nuclear weapons to maintain the balance of power. This will make the Middle East even more volatile.

As such, rather than simply attempting to push Mubarak out of power, President Obama should be working with other more moderate Arab countries and Europeans to insure a gradual transition of power to moderates in Egypt, if there are any. This could mean more bribes, oh I mean foreign aid; but what choice do we have. More likely, President Obama will lose Egypt the same way Jimmy Carter lost Iran. We can see this one coming and it is not a pretty picture.

We need a grown up in the White House, not a community organizer fresh off a plane from Chicago. There is a lot to be said for experience. Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State is OK; but she is not the President. We need to elect a Conservative in 2012 who has been around the block a few times that supports free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a STRONG NATIONAL DEFENSE, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in America.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 beginning with making Obama a one term President. We can't tolerate Jimmy Carter II. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Ronald Reagan - A Man For All Ages

Many in our country this week are celebrating the 100th birthday of Ronald Reagan, 39th President of the United States. As someone who experienced Ronald Reagan personally, I see now that Ronald Reagan was a man for all ages. Reagan came on the national stage during the 1964 Republican Convention that nominated Senator Barry Goldwater as the Republican nominee for the Presidency. While Goldwater was defeated resoundingly by Socialist Lyndon Johnson in 1964 and Goldwater began the Conservative movement in America; it was Ronald Reagan that made it happen.

Ronald Reagan went on to become a successful two term Governor in California a few years later. Reagan showed his metal in California as he dealt with the hippies in torn jeans, most of whom came from rich families, protesting the Viet Nam War on college campuses all over California. Reagan sent in the National Guard to restore order on college campuses and laid down the law. Since Reagan was Governor while I was at Cal State, this blogger has Ronald Reagan's signature at the bottom of my first university degree that was granted in 1971. At the time, I did not think much of it because no one could have predicted then that Reagan would go on to become one of our greatest Presidents. Today, I treasure that signature.

This blogger voted for Socialist Jimmy Carter in 1976 and regretted it for Carter's entire, miserable four years in office. Ronald Reagan came along in 1980, the first time I voted for a Conservative and the last time I ever voted for a Socialist, to make Carter a one term President. Reagan took the oath of office in January, 1981 and it was at that precise moment that the American hostages, held in Iran, were released. The Ayatollahs in Iran knew that when Reagan was elected, there was a new Sheriff in town, which he signaled after his election the prior November. Clearly, the dictators in Iran did not want to mess with Ronald Reagan and neither did anyone else in the world.

Ronald Reagan was brilliant in his simplicity. Reagan supported free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation and a strong national defense. That was it. Coming out of the Viet Nam War, the nation was experiencing self doubt; but Reagan knew better as he rebuilt our military that had been hollowed out during the Carter years. It was "morning in America" again during the Reagan Presidency. And, Reagan was tough. While others tip toed around Communism, Ronald Reagan referred to the Soviet Union as the "evil empire". And then, Reagan conspired with Pope John Paul to bring down Communism in Poland because he knew it would be the domino that would end Communism in Eastern Europe and eventually within the Soviet Union. So without firing a shot, Ronald Reagan defeated Communism and brought freedom to millions of people.

The left wing media, Socialists and Communists around the world, including in the United States,hated Ronald Reagan then and they hate him today. Reagan was referred to as a dangerous, stupid cowboy and derided by the Eastern Establishment because he did not graduate from Harvard, Yale or Princeton. Rather Reagan came from Illinois, the heartland of our country and then headed West. Worst of all, Reagan was an "actor" so they concluded that he was just reading a script while President, rather than writing the script. We all know better today.

All Presidents since Ronald Reagan have been small by comparison. Certainly, Socialist President Obama, young, inexperienced and naive is no Ronald Reagan and never will be. While Obama is smart and articulate, he does not have the real life experience and geo political understanding necessary to be a great President; that's for sure. Obama predicates his decisions, policies, actions etc. on failed, academic Socialist ideology, which is a road to no where. Rather than morning in America, with Obama, we have high unemployment and an ever expanding federal government that seeks to intrude into every aspect of our lives.

As such, and with Ronald Reagan as our model, we must make Obama a one term President, just like Jimmy Carter, by electing a real Conservative. We will never see economic growth, job creation and morning in America again as long as Obama is President, so he has to go in 2012. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren. Ronald Reagan is watching from heaven above. We are going to make Obama a one term President for the Gipper.

Obama's Abbott & Costello

Socialist President Obama has asked former President Bill Clinton to be a salesman to the private sector related to clean energy initiatives and job creation. This is in addition to naming Jeff Immelt, CEO of GE to head the President's Council on Jobs and Competition. Of course, Bill Clinton has never held a private sector job in his life. The Clinton's have been on the public dole for most of their adult lives. And, Jeff Immelt had to take a bail out from the federal government related to GE Financial Services because he has made such a mess of GE that GE's stock is worth about a fourth what it was worth when Jack Welsh was the CEO.

As such, Socialist President Obama who has never worked in the private sector either and does not have a clue about what it takes to create jobs, has appointed the comedy team of Abbott & Costello to advance job creation in the United States. It really is pretty funny since 70% of the American people work for small businesses. The President would have been better off appointing Joe the Plumber, who lives in the real world to head this commission, than Jeff Immelt who has been exporting jobs to China and India for years.

Mr. President, if you want to create jobs, just cut taxes and regulations and get out of the way. Stop pushing CAP & TAX, which will raise energy cost and therefore the cost of doing business in the US and lower the standard of living for all Americans. Just let the free market do what it does best and that is determine winners and losers based on innovation and the profit motive. Government intervention to make the US "Green" based on technologies that are not feasible today will just push more jobs overseas. So while China brings on a new coal plant every week and is building nuclear plants in addition to developing all other sources of energy, Obama has prevented oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and it is almost impossible to build a new nuclear plant in the US due to environmental wacko regulations

It really is too bad that we can't utilize the hot air coming from the Obama Administration to power our factories and homes because then we just might be energy independent. Instead, President Obama is sending Jeff Immelt, a failed CEO and Bill Clinton, who has never held a job in the private sector in his life out on the road to pitch "Green" jobs in the private sector. It is pretty obvious why Immelt is an Obama pal and supporter. Immelt is looking for government subsidies and more bail out's for GE to save his multi million job. As a GE stock holder, I just wish Immelt would mind his own business and focus on managing GE. And, Clinton is just a gad fly looking for any way to get on TV. All Obama needs to do now is to bring Al Gore into the picture and then we will have the Three Stooges making the pitch.

Gosh, we have got to make Obama a one term President and fully take back the Congress in 2012 by electing Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, ENERGY and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country. We certainly don't need Bill Clinton and Jeff Immelt, of all people, flying around the country wasting tax payer money just talking about job creation and spouting more hot air.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country by making Obama a one term President. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Socialist Senators - We Are Counting The Days

Socialists Senators, led by Senator Dirty Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader of the US Senate, rejected the REPEAL of ObamaCare by a vote of 51 to 47. That is that all 51 Socialist Senators and they are confirmed Socialists voted against REPEAL while all 47 Republican Senators voted for REPEAL. The good news is that 23 of these Socialist Senators will either be up for reelection in 2012 and/or a few of them will be retiring. WE ARE COUNTING THE DAYS until the election of 2012 so we can throw these Socialist bums out of office. And, RECALL of Dirty Harry Reid, who just won is his sixth term to the US Senate, should happen too. Dirty Harry is hated in Nevada. Reid won not so much because he was popular; but rather by using his usual dirty tricks and because Sharron Angle, his Republican opponent, was a weak candidate. So RECALL is both feasible and not out of the question.

Remember, aside from ObamaCare, these same Socialists are bankrupting our country. There is no way we can get our fiscal house in order as long as these Socialists are in power. Instead, we must elect Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. These Socialists, including President Obama, don't support any of these tenets. However, this is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and jobs in our country.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 who will adhere to the Constitution, a written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014, just like what is happening in the Middle East. We can do it. We must do it to end ObamaCare, preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Governor Moon Beam - Things Are Different This Time

Socialist Governor Moon Beam, Jerry Brown of California in his State of the State Address stated that "things are different this time" as he called for a ballot initiative in June to maintain what was supposed to be temporary higher taxes. This is just plain hilarious. Brown is like the junkie on heroin who says if I can just get one more fix that I will quit. The fact is that California has a $25 Billion deficit, which is not much different than has been happening for years. And, even though the California Constitution requires a balanced budget, the Socialists in California who run the state have been selling bonds for years to fund operating expenses to pay off their public employee union supporters in higher wages and pensions that are not sustainable.

So what is different? Brown is saying that if his ballot initiative is not approved by the people, there will have to be major cuts to public schools. SO WHAT!! Public schools in California stink! This is really about the $3.5 million that Brown got from the teachers union for his campaign for Governor. It is payback time. At last count the state of California had about 250,000 employees, 13,000 of which were attorneys. Why doesn't Brown end the deficit by laying offer 50,000 of those employees. No one really knows what they do anyway. We do know that they work in a few hundred regulatory agencies that are driving jobs and business out of California.

California is not different than the federal government that is hooked on deficit spending that is bankrupting our country. What is different is that the people of California are often in La La land when they vote for job killer bills like CAP & TAX that will raise energy costs and push what ever manufacturing is left in California out of state and probably out of the country. The only remedy to deficit spending in California is a bankruptcy filing so that the state can void those public employee union contracts. Raising taxes will only push more jobs out of California so that remedy will be self defeating.

California is the poster child for what happens when Socialists are in control and the reason we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country and in California.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives to take back our country, who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, our current or former Presidents, Congresses or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014. We can do it. We must to to prevent more California's, preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren. The Golden state is Golden no more because of Socialist control. It is what it is.
