- Our national debt is approaching 18 trillion and we have over $127 trillion in unfunded liabilities.
- Supposedly, with growth at 3.5 percent, our economy is zooming, but much that growth is due to the reduction of oil and gas prices. That reduction is due to new technology that Obama just finally got around to supporting. Meanwhile, in the name of about Global Warming (never shown to exist) , Obama and the Democrats continue warring against coal.
- The news on “immigration reform” is that we can expect President Obama to issue another one of his unconstitutional executive orders.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called on President Obama to issue a “bold” executive order that would stop the deportation of millions of illegal immigrants, including farm workers, families of people allowed to remain in the country under the administration’s “Dream Act” policy, and many others. (continued here)
Why do the Democrats want all those illegal immigrants? Well, now we have question. Could non-citizens decide the November election? With enough “non-citizens,” in the next election that question could go away. 80 percent of non-citizens vote Democrat.
- With respect to the Ebola virus our leaders have a schizophrenic policy. When they come from West Africa after treating people with Ebola we don’t quarantine civilian health care workers, but our military personnel? Well, here is our Dear Leader’s scientifically incomprehensible explanation
Q Are you concerned, sir, that there might be some confusion between the quarantine rules used by the military and used by health care workers and by some states?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, the military is a different situation, obviously, because they are, first of all, not treating patients. Second of all, they are not there voluntarily, it’s part of their mission that’s been assigned to them by their commanders and ultimately by me, the Commander-in-Chief. So we don’t expect to have similar rules for our military as we do for civilians. They are already, by definition, if they’re in the military, under more circumscribed conditions.
When we have volunteers who are taking time out from their families, from their loved ones and so forth, to go over there because they have a very particular expertise to tackle a very difficult job, we want to make sure that when they come back that we are prudent, that we are making sure that they are not at risk themselves or at risk of spreading the disease, but we don’t want to do things that aren’t based on science and best practices. Because if we do, then we’re just putting another barrier on somebody who’s already doing really important work on our behalf. And that’s not something that I think any of us should want to see happen. (from here)
- The Obama administration has the situation in Iraq and Syria under similarly scientific control, Foreign jihadists flocking to Iraq and Syria on ‘unprecedented scale’ – UN.
- In spite of (or because of?) Obamacare, our health care costs are rising faster than our wages. And those rising health care costs hit low income workers harder.
- And so forth.
In this coming election, we have the need to throw the bums out more than we have had in decades. The people we have in charge right now don’t even bother to concern themselves with the Constitution. Instead of serving us, they think their job is to deliver the goods (our goods) to their campaign donors.
So what should we do? We should vote Republican.
Of course, many will complain there is very little difference between Republicans and Democrats, but that is not entirely true. If we check their voting records, we will find that even RINOs don’t vote exactly like Liberal Democrats. Republican did not vote for Obamacare, for example. Nevertheless, we cannot count on power-hungry RINOs to repeal awful legislation like Obamacare or to cut taxes and spending. Therefore, we must plan ahead.
Why aren’t Republicans and Democrats more concerned about running our country properly? That is our fault. Too many of us don’t participate in either the Republican Party’s or the Democratic Party’s nomination process. Instead, we let special interests fund the candidates they want and get them nominated. And surprise! Surprise! What the special interests want are crooked politicians.
Therefore, on the day after Election Day, November 5, 2014, we need to do three things.
- If the guy we voted for is a RINO, we need to send him a polite note. We need to congratulate him on his victory, and we need to explain just exactly why we voted for him. If he starts do something else, like trying to pass an amnesty bill for illegal immigrants, we must make it clear we will work to get rid of him in the next election.
- We need to start participating in the nomination process. Until we start nominating Republicans who are serious about limited government, we are going to get RINOs who are only just a little bit less crazy than Democrats about taxing and spending.
- We need to pray. Whatever God’s Will for the future may be, we need to be doing what He would have us do.
