Sign the Petition to Mitt Romney · Convince Mitt Romney to run for US president in 2016

https://www.causes.com/actions/1766702-sign-the-petition-to-mitt-romney

                  Petition to convince Mitt Romney to run for US president in 2016: 
written by Katrina Lantz
Whereas, the free market continues to be oppressed by onerous and growing federal regulations in every American industry, including and especially health care and education; and
Whereas, the federal government challenges states' rights through the Department of Justice and other stems of the executive branch by suing states on behalf of non-citizen populations or unions/special interest groups; and
Whereas, the abuses of the federal government through the IRS, among other bureaucracies, have oppressed voters and obstructed the workings of our democracy; and
Whereas, history has now taught us the cost of an inexperienced Commander in Chief both at home and abroad; and
Whereas, the failure to negotiate or lead on the part of President Barack Obama has led to gridlock and emergency situations in Washington; and
Whereas, C.E.O. Mitt Romney has proven his mettle as a free market champion who knows how and which government regulations are beneficial to society as a whole; and
Whereas, Governor Mitt Romney supports states' rights, believes the states to be the laboratories of democracy, and has brought divergent parties together to tackle issues such as health care and education at the local level; and
Whereas, Mitt Romney won 61 million votes in 2012 in spite of IRS voter suppression of conservative groups over the course of two years, and in spite of rampant voter fraud; and
Whereas, Mitt Romney continues to demonstrate his leadership by lending his understanding and expertise to the problems we as a nation face today; and
Whereas, Mitt Romney's political predictions have all come to fruition and/or light in recent months, showing an intellect, understanding, and leadership ability that must be wanted after the failures and scandals of President Barack Obama's tenure;
Now Therefore we the undersigned, call on Governor Mitt Romney to offer himself as a Republican candidate for President of the United States in the presidential election of 2016.
Signed,
Jared Townsend
Millions of Americans knew how desperately this country needed Mitt Romney, the candidate with the perfect blend of experience, leadership, character, and record of success to turn this country from the dire straits it is currently in. But for a variety of reasons, it was not to be. The electorate was misled and lied to by this administration. Conservative grass roots efforts were targeted and suppressed in critical battleground states by a corrupt and undermining government agency. The media refused to remain objective and neutral in their portrayal of the candidates. Yet even with all of this stacked against him as well as a clear historical precedence (just once in the last century has a GOP challenger defeated a Democratic incumbent)... Romney was on a clear path to victory just days leading up to the election as indicated by the RCP average (the most reliable predictor of US presidential outcomes). It was not until hurricane Sandy reared its devastating effects on the nation that the momentum switched. True to form, natural disasters nearly always favor the incumbent.  In a time when his popularity was still favorable, it was all Obama needed to secure a second term.
For these reasons and more, 2012 was not Romney's time. However, there is a growing trend of support within the populace that 2016 can be Romney's time, that 2016 can be OUR time! It is up to us to have our voices heard if we are to convince this man to run again, to run not for himself, but for "Love of Country". If called upon, Mitt Romney will take up the mantle once more to champion those very principles which made this country great. Signing this petition shows a sign of solidarity to the rest of the country and Mitt Romney himself, solidarity based on the belief that this country is truly exceptional and as such requires exceptionalism, not mediocrity, in its leaders. Please take the time to sign this petition and share it with everyone you can. After you sign, be sure to visit our page and connect with us to stay informed and involved with our efforts.

ARE HISPANICS FRIEND OR FOE?

By Evelio Perez
As a Cuban-American and a Hispanic I write this article with shame and disgust over the illegal immigration culture war presently dividing and infesting this great nation. Have we Hispanics lost our mind? 

 How can we justify imposing our will and culture on our gracious hosts? Aren't we supposed to learn English and assimilate ourselves with the American way of life?

 This current fiasco has nothing to do with bigotry and has everything to do with overrunning this country with failed people from failed countries and changing the political dynamics forever, some of these troublemakers are even trying to retake lost territory for Mexico, how do I know? 
They are telling us !

 The United States government and it's people have bent backwards to be reasonable and humane with the illegal immigrants only to be called fascists and racists in their own country......... ( This takes huge COJONES ) Our way of life is being threatened and it is now time to take our country back......ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !


 The United States government's duty to all of it's citizens is to keep them safe from harm within the sovereign borders of this great nation and the moment that defending ourselves becomes politically incorrect is the moment that we have lost the battle for preserving any reasonable chance to keep our families safe from all illegal invaders, including the people that want to do us harm, we must completely close the borders and enforce the laws of the land, our survival depends on it.

 I am embarrassed and ashamed of fellow Hispanics that choose anarchy over the rule of law and this is not the first time, their willful disregard of American laws and lives is displayed daily in most major cities with killer street gangs running amok selling drugs and terrorizing American neighborhoods, the anti-gringo fervor is in an all time high and if we don't put a stop to all of this madness right now, we will be responsible for for the carnage that will follow.


 As Cuban refugees we have also felt the wrath of our Hispanic compadres, we were the minority within the Hispanic minority and we were looked down on for because we disliked Fidel Castro!
  
 Do you know why they like Castro and "El Che" Guevara so much folks? Because they stood up to the evil gringos, that's why, they could not understand why we would hate such a great hero of the common people, because of that we became the ignorant nuisance and embarrassment of the Hispanic community, we were ridiculed for choosing hard work over welfare and blasted for siding with the conservative values of the Republican Party for all these years.

 The day that I became a citizen of this country, I swore an oath  that I would support and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America. This pledge of allegiance was made with my full consent and total understanding of what all of this meant including my total commitment for the rule of law.

 I do see pockets of decent Hispanics breaking out of the nanny state of mind that has kept many of them from reaching the American dream, it is my hope that they take up the mantle and lead the fight of standing up for America when America needs us the most, because God knows that America stood up for us.................

ARE HONOR & INTEGRITY LOST FOREVER?

 
By Evelio Perez
Have Honor and Integrity become a thing of the past? Have we become so morally corrupted by lowering our standards in the new world of politically correct and misguided modernism? 
  1.  The other day, I was having dinner with my wife and kids and overheard some young people in the next booth seriously disrespecting this elderly person next to our table. Out loud, they would mock the older couple by saying mean things like................... "all this old fart ever talks about is Honor an Integrity." They continued to make fun and insult this seemingly good man and his wife  simply because they did not understand what these magnificent words meant.I thought about it long and hard and was amazed at how people today perceive those two very important traits of a man's character and how the new perspective of these values and the new generation's idea of modernism are cheapening the meaning of these very important words.

Many people that live by those words today are ridiculed and ostracized simply for having the courage to defend these precious conservative values. We as a center-right country need to re-focus and start teaching our children the importance of why these words are so crucial in how you lead your life. 


 You read about the great men and women throughout our history that knew what those words meant, they said what they meant and meant what they said.


 Many stood for what was right, even if it meant certain death, these are the heroes that have given their blood, sweat and tears and even their lives to give us what we have today, the greatest country in the history of civilization and that.... is what makes these people special.

  A man with Honor has the ability to be counted on to do the right thing every time, regardless of the situation, this is crucial in how you are measured and trusted by your family and friends.


 Integrity has to do with always doing the right thing, even if the outcome is not in your interest.


There are some things that great people strive to achieve as their goal in life, be true to your God, friends and family, honor your commitments and defend what is right regardless of the consequences, if you give your all in the pursuit of defending what is morally right, you will forever be known as an honorable person who made a difference in many people's lives and that is something that no one can ever take away from you...................

Never played R.N.C. AD on Benghazi........


Jonathan Karl, who's owned the politics-of-Benghazi beat all week, obtains a campaign ad that the RNC designed but never released in the fall of 2012. It's simple, which lends it some emotional punch.

Brain death claim from Cuba on Hugo Chavez

January 9, 2013

Focus On. - Ricardo D'Erizans Guanipa.-

 There are many speculations that have been said about the health of President of Venezuela Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias and his seriously ill in Cuba.

Both Cuban and Venezuelan authorities have woven a web of half-truths mystery, Cuba is silent, while the Venezuelan government has appointed a young journalist with precarious professional background as official spokesman who had the difficult task of reporting on Chavez's health.

However, within hours of completing the six-year term of the reelected president who should take oath next January 10 to restart a new government period as required by the constitution, the National Assembly of Venezuela government majority has decided to postpone the Chavez sworn to time indefinite contradicting the constitutional mandate which would make authorities last official figures mandate without legitimacy, including the entire train ministerial and those that must be approved or removed from office by order of the President.

In Cuba, although there is no official statement on the health of Hugo Chavez, Focus On learned that on Dec. 31 last seven in the evening, senior officers were called to their home to present themselves immediately in their jobs control officers including high and medium range.

Among them, Brigadier General Eusebio Garcia, who had the urgent need to stop the celebration of the new year and in the end the celebration of the anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in January 1959 when General Batista was overthrown by Cuban militants Led by Fidel Castro's guerrillas.

The General Eusebio Garcia and other officers were called to take command of their units as a result of brain death of Hugo Chavez who is treated in Cimeq in Havana.
Both Garcia and dozens of senior officers who know the reality of the health of Hugo Chavez, have been barred from returning to their homes to prevent leakage of information, so that you have nine days out of their homes by the vegetative state Chavez.
Another source consulted by Focus On Journal, said that the Venezuelan president is assisted by a ventilator that her vital signs remained stable, despite of plant death, even so, nurses and specialists Cimeq since Jan. exercise arms and legs to prevent numb muscles president, nevertheless, constantly moving his inert body position for the same purpose.

In short, the government of Venezuela has announced that Chavez was conscious and in a few weeks will return to the country to take its role and be sworn in by the Supreme Court, when in fact the brain damage is irreversible president of Venezuela and just disconnect them lack of medical equipment to give eternal peace, says the source.

WHY I FEAR FOR AMERICA, A CUBAN-AMERICAN PERSPECTIVE

By Evelio Perez   
 Socialism is crawling it's way into our country, our way of life is being threatened and every day our voices are being slowly silenced, our constitution is being attacked and our moral beliefs are being tossed aside for the new ways of the new society. Some may ask, what makes this guy such an expert on Socialism?

 I was born in Habana, Cuba in 1952.  We lived in a two bedroom apartment alongside my twin brother, Mother and father in Old Habana just a couple of blocks from "El Malecon" (The famous sea wall along the outskirts of the city). We were considered a middle class family with modest means. We were a very close family unit with lots of good friends and good times, everything was great........Until a very charismatic and impressive young man appeared on the scene, this Messiah, THE ONE, this person who offered Hope and Change, he who appeared to have all the answers to every question ever asked, started to make trouble, there was this violent revolution that stunned the country and on Jan.1,1959, Fidel Castro and his liberators paraded into the streets of Habana with promises of Hope and Change that some of the people were clamoring for.

 That was a very bloody year, the kangaroo courts were continuous, brutal and without any mercy, they were also on television where every day you could see person after person appear in this farce also called a court of law.  

I still remember as the condemned were dragged into the court, the crowds drooling with hate, were in complete delirious harmony chanting "PAREDON, PAREDON, PAREDON" (firing squad) and of course many of them were guilty and shot minutes later.
Castro then proceeded to take all of the people's weapons in the pretense that he would take care of all of us, that only bad people had arms of death, yes he took all of our fire-arms and left us defenseless     (You ever wonder why Castro has lasted so long?)


 Within a year in power he took our freedoms away as he started this Socialist experiment by nationalizing all industries in Cuba, the state owned everything including your home and your children, every neighborhood had a committee that would inform on their neighbors if they even suspected that you were against Fidel. 

 I remember the talks our parents had with us about not talking to ANYONE for we could innocently tell of our parents disgust with the Revolution, the fear of being dragged in those trials was enough of a torture for a 8 year old little boy. 

Eventually we were pulled out of school because the communist indoctrinations started where they taught and demanded that your love and loyalty always began with Fidel, El Che and the Revolution.

Pan American Freedom Flight
 Our families were split apart by ideologies, some were with the Revolution and the rest of us were not. So in September 3, 1961 our Mother told my twin brother and I (to our surprise) that on that same day we were going to America to see our beloved father,  who left a few months before to get a job and an apartment for us when we got there.
I remember getting on that old Pan Am twin engine propeller plane and leaving the land of my birth and half of my beloved family forever. 
We got to the United states soon after and remember when my feet hit the grounds my mother telling us crying "Son, we don't have to be scared anymore, now you can say anything you want because we are free".

 I'll never forget those words as long as I live, and it is for that reason that I will continue to fight against this Socialist onslaught that is dooming our society today.
It is up to us who came from Socialist dictatorships to lead the revolt against the evil that is contaminating America before it is too late, we know who these people are and how they are trying to achieve their goals. 

 All immigrants from Nicaragua, Bolivia, El Salvador, Venezuela, Ecuador, and of course Cuba that have experienced the horrors of this system, have to re-double and lead the effort against this Socialist tidal wave that is destroying life as we know it. 


 We must be loud, we must be heard and we must be clear, we must un-mask these pretenders and expose them for what they really are, Radical Socialists who are dead set on changing America to their idealistic Socialist utopia.

Folks, we are in a desperate crossroad in this country's history and We the People are the last line of defense, we must not fail to stop this blatant overthrow of our Constitutional freedoms and our precious way of life because the alternative is simply more of the same Cuban nightmare, how do I know?  I was there.............

AS THE IGNORANT DANCE: Great News, The “Fiscal Tax Cliff” Has Been Avoided… Really?


By Kenny Youngblood
As I Previously Addressed And Discussed The Truths Concerning These Issues, You Can Rest Assured, That The True “Fiscal Cliff” Has NOT Been Avoided.
Instead, Our Wise And Deceitful Elected Officials Have Just Steered Us Onto Another Road To Take Us To A Higher Jumping Off Point. One Of Which They Hope, Our Country Will Not Reach Before They Personally “Retire” From Office.

Remember, Taxes Are Factual And Immediate And The So Called “Federal Government Spending Cuts”… Well, They Are Only Imaginary. As For Those Seemingly “Hard Negotiated” Spending Cuts, They Are Disingenuously Spread Out Over A Full Decade And That Would Involve Binding Future Elected Administrations Unto Those Same, To Even Accomplish The Deceitful Promises And We All Know, That Future Administrations, Desire To Be Elected On Their Own Fallible Promises, NOT To Be Subjected Unto The Previous Administration’s Deceit And Trickery…

So Who Is To Blame? Of Course Each Political Party Will Blame The Other Party As IF It Is Only One Side’s Fault And They Both Know Full Well, That It Has Been Both Parties That Have Gotten Us Into This Mess To Begin With And Now They Are Both Too Broken To Fully Admit This, So It Is No Surprise At How Much Less, They Are Even Realistic Attempting To Resolve This Same…

NOW CONSIDER: About That Tooth Pulling Without Anesthetics Equivalent, Of That Barely Obtained ($15B)Fifteen Billion Dollars In Spending Cuts, Contained In This “Fair And Balanced” Approach That Mr. Obama So Desired And Is Reluctantly Willing To Agree With, For The Greater Good…

The Federal Reserve Has Already Been, And Will Continue To Print ($45B)Forty-Five Billion Dollars Worth Of Brand New Cash Each And Every Month, Which Through Deceit And Trickery, At The Tax Payers’ Expense Of Course, Winds Up Into Those Same Greedy Hands Of Those Who Find It So Hard To Be Responsible.

The Latest Data Shows That The Current America, Not Spending But Borrowing Amounts Have Increased From An Estimated ($4B)Four Billion Dollars, To Nearly Five And A Half Billion Dollars Each And Every Day.

So In Reality, The ($15B)Fifteen Billion Dollars In Spending Cuts Finally Agreed To, Was Actually Less Than What America Is BORROWING In A (3)Three Day Period, To Sustain The Current Out Of Control Greed Of Washington… But Wait… Remember The Spending Cuts Are Spread Out Over A Decade So They Won’t Be So Painful…

So Chew On This Cabbage… We Tax Payers Will Have To Pay More Than The Entire Amount Of These Agreed Upon Spending Cuts, Just On The Interest Alone, That Has Accrued On The Money America Has Borrowed Since These “Spending / Cuts” Negotiations First Began…

The K.E.Y...

CONSIDER THIS

By Kenny Youngblood
 “Today Mr. Obama In His Nearly Daily Meeting With Some Kind Of Media Forum, Rather That With The Congress, Was Speaking His Same Old Tired Claims About The Looming “Fiscal Cliff“ When He Stated, “Nobody Wants To Get This Deal Done More Than Me”.

Now I Am Positive That I’ve Heard Something Similar Somewhere Else… Oh Yeah, When He Stated Repeatedly That, “Nobody Wants To Get To The Truth More Than Me”, About The Fast And Furious Government Gunrunning Program Which Furnished American Weapons Into The Hands Of Known Mexico Criminals, Even One Which Was Used The American Government Supplied Gun To Shoot And Kill A Federal Border Agent, As Well As Many Other Weapons Directly Into The Hands Of Many Other Known Criminals Who Murder Mexico Leaders And Citizens, Nearly Every Single Day. 

You Know What I Am Talking About, That Old, Old Case That The Mainstream Media Ignores And The Obama Administration Never Addresses, Perhaps In Their Hopes That It Will Just Fade Away And Disappear… So Where’s The Truth, He Wants So Bad?

Oh Wait, Maybe I Was Thinking About When He Stated Repeatedly That, “Nobody Wants To Get To The Truth More Than Me”, About The 9/11 Benghazi, Libya Consulate Attack, Where An American Ambassador And Three Heroic Attempted Rescuers Were All Murdered While Some In The Administration Sat There And Watched Them Die. 

You Remember, That Other Old Case That The Mainstream Media Ignores And The One The Obama Administration Continuously Misled The Public About, Prior To The Election, Even The Same One That Now, They Don’t Even Bother To Address Unless A Republican Inquires, Perhaps In The Hopes That It Too, Will Just Fade Away And Disappear… 

You Know, Kind Of Like Those Military Leaders Who Were Actually In Charge, At The Time Of The Attack, As Well As Like The Secretary Of State, When It Comes To Her Assistance In Participating In The Congressional Inquiry And Investigation…

Yeah, We Know What He Really Means, He Just Keeps Confusing The Term “Nobody” For “Everybody“…

Gay Marriage Should be Addressed by SCOTUS, and Championed by Republicans


By Jesse Merkel
On Monday, the Supreme Court could decide whether or not it will take up the issue of gay marriage. Like other recent landmark decisions, there will be a massive amount of loud supporters championing both sides of the cause. Today, it should be made clear that conservatives more than anyone else, should come out in favor of gay marriage.

The idea of Republicans for gay marriage might seem rather ridiculous, but the truth is that supporting gay marriage could put the GOP back into their rightful place as the champions of civil rights. It was the Republican Party that pushed the end to slavery, fought to enforce equal rights in the South before Jim Crow, championed women’s suffrage and wrote the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

A large number of Republicans and conservatives are split. As a party largely attached to the religious right, many in the GOP have been reluctant to recognize same sex unions, because of the obvious religious implications. However, as the champions of the individual, conservatives of all stripes should remember that as much as they want people to stay out of their lives, there are many people who feel the same way about marriage.

In fact, a majority of the country now supports it. According to CBS, 51% of the country now supports gay marriage. Gay marriage was a winning argument this past election day. With victories in Maine and Maryland, it marked the first time at the ballot box, voters approved of gay marriage.

Gay marriage is not abortion. No life is being taken, and no one is being harmed. While it could be argued that abortion has contributed to the devaluing of human life and harmful to society, it could also be argued that gay marriage could be beneficial in more ways that one.

While it seems as though the institution of marriage is always under attack, Republicans and conservatives should be happy these days that anyone wants to get hitched! Studies have shown that married people live longer and lead happier lines on average.

There are also many gay couples out there that would love to be able to adopt a child if given the opportunity. A stable, loving home is the best thing to encourage a child’s development. There are millions of children that would love just to have a home to call their own. The more willing parents there are, the better. Marriage can reduce child poverty dramatically and increase the likelihood of a child wanting to go to college.

Many social and religious conservatives may vote against the subject of gay marriage because of their own religious beliefs. No matter what kind of personal beliefs conservative individuals and families may have, it’s important to remember that when personal liberty thrives, the entire nation thrives. A gay couple getting married down the street will not lead to the closing of churches across town.

And the GOP will have allies. Libertarians are all on board with gay marriage, and there are many moderates who see the issue as no big deal. There are several prominent Republicans that are leading the charge that everyone should have the right to get married.

Former GOP Chairman Ken Mehlman, who came out after his term as chairman had ended, has formed a new group called Project Right Side. This group is targeted at expanding support for gay marriage with Republicans and other conservatives. Believing (correctly, I might add) that conservatives succeed when they attract new supporters to timeless ideas, Mehlman believes that marriage equality could be a tremendous winner for the Republican Party.

I had an opportunity to speak with Jimmy LaSalvia, co-founder and executive director of GOProud, the nations leading gay conservative political action group. I asked him for his views on this subject last week during a brief discussion over the phone:

“I personally am a pro-life social conservative, and I always think that we should always apply conservative values and principles to the issues of the day, and that’s why I support same-sex marriage, because I know that marriage and monogamous relationships are better for people. The whole stereotype of the gay community is being promiscuous, and reckless. That is something that as a social conservative I don’t want for gay people. I want gay people to settle down. I think too often times conservatives fail to take principles and apply to issues of the day. They’re too caught up in sticking to a policy position, even when it doesn’t jive with their principles.”

LaSalvia also thought it was interesting to note that he is regularly invited to speak at universities across the country by college Republican groups, but never by college gay groups.

Conservatives like LaSalvia and Brian Carroll (a.k.a: the GayPatriot) who work with GOProud believe that the issue should be fought for by the states. As a tenth amendment champion, it makes sense. The Defense of Marriage Act is not only a non-starter, but it’s also an example of the federal government overstepping its bounds that we as conservatives are supposed to be opposed to.

Fighting yesterday’s battles and banging ones head against the walls will not do anyone any good when the only result will be a bloody nose. It makes even less sense when fighting them makes little sense to conservatism.

Other conservatives, such as former Solicitor General Ted Olson have stated that championing gay marriage is the right and conservative thing to do. Even former Vice President Dick Cheney has come out in support of gay marriage. One can support an individuals’ right to drink, smoke, and own guns. Why not marriage?

We as conservatives showed a great amount of outrage when President Obama and his cabinet attempted to force Catholic institutions to provide contraception coverage even though it was against their wishes. We as conservatives should not try to force our beliefs on anyone else, especially when the actions we are trying to prevent will not cause us or the country any harm.

Of course, the left will accuse the Republicans of being bandwagon jumpers, and there will be some on the right who will cry foul. However, the Republican Party can be on the right side of history again, as it has been more often than it has not. We must not let a gloating left, a condescending media and a few stalwarts hold us back from reclaiming our mantle.

Republicans should support gay marriage because we support the individual. If we support same-sex unions, it will only further reinforce the notion that we do not need to break people off into groups and marginalize them, the way the left has done for three decades.

Drunk driving harms people. Criminals harm people. The federal government overstepping it’s boundaries harms people too. We as conservatives want to allow our fellow citizens as much freedom as humanly possible. To ask anything less of ourselves is to turn in our conservative decoder rings and membership cards.

“I'm a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being ... by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant.”

The Absurdity Of The ABSURD: Even An Idiot Can Be Accurate Every Once In A While…

By Kenny Youngblood
The Absurdity Of The ABSURD: Even An Idiot Can Be Accurate Every Once In A While…

The Senate Majority Leader, Senator Harry Reid (D) Nevada Stated That There Basically Is Nothing To Talk About, Concerning Democrats Agreeing To Make Budget Cuts Or Entitlement Reforms, A Part Of The Looming “Fiscal Cliff” Negotiations, Because Americans Have Already Given Them (Mr. Obama And The Senate Democrats) The Mandate To Raise Taxes.

QUOTE: “President Obama And Senate Democrats Ran On A Promise To End The Bush Tax Breaks For The Wealthy… Americans, When They Voted, Raised Their Voices And Supported OUR PLEDGE, Congress MUST Act In Accordance With The Will Of The American People” -- Harry Reid (D-NV) (Stated 11/27/12 On The Senate Floor)

This Of Course Is Completely Contradictory Unto Their Promises Of Bi-Partisan Negotiations And All Options On The Table, To Reach A Mutual Agreement As Was Endlessly Repeated In Their Campaigns. 

In Addition, What Pledge Of The Democrat Candidates? Many Of Those Same Ran Away From Mr. Obama During Their Own Campaign, To Not Be Associated With His Failed Record.

However, When Mr. Reid Stated, “Congress MUST Act In Accordance With The Will Of The American People”, He Finally Let Slip Through His Lips, An Actual Truth. 

However, What His Politically Degraded Mind Doesn’t Comprehend Is… That The “Will” Of Only Half Of The Voters, Is The “Will” That He Is Trying To Impose On The Other Half Of The Voters, As Well As ALL Other Americans, For Whatever Reason Had No Voice.

When Boldly Proclaiming In His Perceived Intellectual Brilliance, To Appear As A Representative Of ALL Americans, Perhaps He Has Failed To Realize That IF “Congress MUST Act In Accordance With The Will Of The American People”, Then The Elected Congress MUST Act In Accordance With Their Own Constituents, NOT His Or Any Others‘, Just Because They May Have Won The Most Recent Election.

Therefore, All Representatives Who Have Been Elected Or Directed By The “Will” Of Their Own Constituents, To NOT Raise Taxes And Continue Feeding The Bottomless Pit, But Instead To Cut Out Wasteful Spending And Grow More Responsibility, Rather Than More Government, Then Surely Those Same Elected Or Directed Representatives, Also MUST Act In Accordance With That “Will”.

Our Representatives Should Represent Us, We The People And NOT Just Other Representatives Of Their Own Party….

They ALL Are Elected As One Voice For Many, NOT To Represent A Single Club, Party Or Gang And Become Many Voices For That One… K.E.Y...

The Absurdity Of The ABSURD: To Tax Or NOT To Tax, That Is The Question


By Kenny Youngblood 
CONSIDER THIS: Would Anyone In Their RIGHT Mind Even Consider Giving A Crack Whore More Crack Now, Because She Promises To Cut Down On Her Drug Abuse Later?

Well, Each Time Mr. Obama Claims He Has To Have Tax Rate Increases On The Wealthy, As An Absolute, Before He Will Even Consider A “Serious” Conversation About Negotiations On This So Called “Fiscal Cliff”, Reminds Me Of Exactly That Same Analogy.

There Are No Serious Negotiations On The Budget Issues Or Deficit Reduction Coming From The Left Side Of The Isle As Clearly Demonstrated Even Post Election, While They Repeatedly Attempt To Lessen The Importance Of The Lingering And Continuously Growing Balloon Of All Balloons. Either NOT Realizing Or NOT Caring, That When This Mighty Balloon Bursts, It Will Not Only Implode America’s Economy But It Will Have Dire Consequences On A World Wide Scale, Never Before Seen Or Felt.

In Fact, It Would NOT Be An Exaggeration To State That This Subject Could And Should Be Consider A Highly Volatile National Security Threat.

The Liberal Democrats’ Attitude, Partly Reminds Me Of Seeing A Child Covering Their Eyes, Thinking If They Can’t See, Then They Can’t Be Seen, So To Is Their Continued Ignorance Of These Issues, If They Ignore Them, Then Perhaps Everyone Else Will NOT Notice That They Really Exists.

The Obama Administration Has Already Proven That Their Word And Negotiations Are Meant To Be Untrustworthy, Even In So Much As Their Own Saying So, After Previous Agreements Were Made And They Then Laughed, When The Time Came To Hold Up Their End Of The Bargain.

Therefore, When The Weakened And Floundering Republican Party Representatives Submit And Agree To These Desired Increases, There Will Be NO Cuts In Spending, Either Now Or Promised In The Future That Will Actually Be Enforceable.

Moreover, IF The Decision Is Made To Allow All Of The Current Tax Rates To Increase Temporarily, In Order To Negotiate Tax Cuts For Certain Groups Of Tax Payers In The Future, You Can Rest Assured, That Your Representatives Have Not Only Violated Your Trust, But They Have Once Again Walked Into The Web Of Deceit.

In Reality, IF You Want To Help A Crack Whore, You Can’t Give Her More Drugs, You Have To Wean Her Gradually And Take Away Her Crack, While Helping Her Endure The Withdrawal Effects, Because IF Not… Well, The Alternative Is Forcing The American Taxpayers Into Becoming Her Enabling Dealer And Pimp….

    My Open Letter To The GOP: Don't Forget The Disabled

    By By Jared Allebest

    Conservative Samizdat


    Even though the election ended a few weeks ago, the Republican party is still feeling the sting of losing the election and are reviewing the reasons why the election did not turn out the way we predicted. I've sat read many articles that attempted to explain our party's loss and identify the problems of the GOP. It seems to me that there is a general consensus that the GOP party and Mitt Romney's campaign failed seriously take the current and future demographic make up of our country. Our country's make up has rapidly changed and will do so in the foreseeable future. As a result of these huge demographic change, their will be a change in how people view the government and its responsibility to the citizens.

    The pundits, columnists, political advisers seem to all agree that our party needs reach out to important voting groups such as womenAsian Americans, Latinos, African-Americans or young people. However, there is one demographic that the GOP doesn't even make an attempt to reach out to that Democrats consistently do and they win by large margins.
    Its people with disabilities.
    According to some estimates, there are approximately 54 million Americans with some kind of disability. What's so important about this group is that it can be found in every demographic group in America. This group is found across every level of society and affects people of every age, race, occupation, education or economic situation.  This means that approximately 1 in 5 U.S. residents or 19 percent of America fall into this group. The democrats are very aware of this demographic and that's why they overwhelmingly win this voting demographic at the ballot box.
    But the size of this group isn't limited to just those who have some form of disability. If you include the individuals, single parents, families, educators, law enforcement, the judicial system and businesses who deal with disabilities on a personal and daily basis, you have a large voting bloc since they also join in on the concerns and issues that this demographic group is concerned about. Think about it. We all know someone has some form of a disability whether it be severe or mild and we know the challenges they face. They are deeply concerned about promoting their interests and protecting their rights.
    If the Republican party can reach out to this group and articulate how conservative principles will improve the lives of people with disability, it will dramatically change how people, especially minorities, view the Republican party. People will be more receptive to the conservative message and view the GOP in a more positive light if they could see the tangible impact on the lives of the disabled because they will know if it works for them, it will work others as well.  
    In volunteering or working for various political candidates, I have suggested that we reach out to Deaf people as well as people with other disabilities. Nobody takes my suggestion seriously. But then again, the Republican Party and Conservatives don't fully understand why they need to. 
    Conservatism is a universal yet unique message. Our principles and values apply to everyone regardless of who they are or what groups they belong to because our policies allow the greatest number of people to be successful in society. That is made possible because we believe that paths to success are as infinite and unique as the people who dare to dream to do what they aspire to do. 
    Conservatism is a liberating, empowering and powerful message because the individual, can expand or push beyond the limitations that their bodies, circumstances, or background places upon them. It is a free thinking and open minded belief that encourages people to be their best selves and to constantly reach for new vistas of excellence. It allows people to reach their fullest potential by using their intellect and creative powers to solve problems that benefit themselves and others, to create products and services and to make beautiful paintings, art, books, film and clothing.
    However, in the conservative world view, the individual isn't an island unto himself. There are times when the individuals rely on other individuals who freely and voluntarily pool their talents, resources and finances to individuals in need. Families, churches as well as educational and medical organizations are the best venues to help disabled people reach their full potential.
    The final point to the conservative message is that we do believe in a limited government. This concept is is a message that needs to be better articulated to the public because non-conservatives understand this idea in theory but not in practice. What this means is that government is given specific duties as well as limited responsibilities and powers. In practice, that means that government can be the solution to some problems that are too large for individuals to fix and that provide fairness and equality to everyone.
    This is why we need to better explain this message to the various groups because one of the major and common concerns of these voting groups such as women, Asian Americans, African Americans, Latinos and other minority groups is their concern about widespread discrimination both in the past, present and future as well as the inability to integrate into American society.
    However, Republicans were once fully aware of these concerns and addressed it. After all, Republicans were the ones who got the post civil war Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution passed. It was the Republicans who passed the Civil Rights Act of 1866, the Reconstruction Act of 1867 and other civil rights laws in 1875, 1890, 1922, 1935, 1938 as well as the anti-poll tax bills in 1942, 1944, and 1946. The Republican party also passed Civil Rights laws of 1957, 1964 and 1965.
    When it comes to helping people with disabilities, it was a Republican President named Abraham Lincoln who established the Galludet University which is a college for Deaf people.
    It was a Republican President, George H. W. Bush,  who signed the Americans With Disability Act (ADA). The law is not perfect but as a conservative lawyer who engages in disability discrimination litigation in a deeply Republican state populated by a majority of people who share my faith, I can tell you that this law and other anti-discrimination laws that help people with disabilities is the kind of limited government solutions to big problems that real conservatives endorse.
    If the GOP wants to be successful in upcoming elections, they have to clearly articulate and demonstrate that our policies and agendas are ones where the greatest number of people benefit in a country that is very diverse with different ethnic, racial, social, religious, economic and physical backgrounds. We believe that the free market is the best way for all walks of life to become successful and we also believe that the government can help those who sincerely need it. We do not believe that government should be helping everyone regardless if they need it or not.  
    When conservatives talk about limited government, conservatives can demonstrate what they mean by that phrase. The disability community relies on government for assistance, legislation and public funded programs and they are justified in doing so. They don't seek a government handout. These programs help people who truly need it to in order to be independent, to obtain medical assistance they cannot afford, or to become active participants in society.  
    Conservatives should tread very carefully when talking about people who receive government assistance because their are certainly those who abuse the system and there are those who truly need it. Libertarians and Conservatives have been careless and not very articulate when talking about Americans who receive public assistance of some kind.  There are those, such as John Stossel, who have openly opposed anti discrimination laws such as the ADA. They fail to realize that they're alienating people rather than attracting people to their political views when they make stupid comments about individuals with disabilities.
    I don't oppose people criticizing the ADA since there are valid objections to be made. However, what these critics fail to realize that for people with disabilities, life in the absence of these laws was not that great. Thanks to these laws, it helps to combat discrimination, allow disabled people to be employed with businesses supplying reasonable accommodations for them and having the technology to become more integrated into our society. Disabled people didn't have these kinds of protections back then.
    As a result, the Republican party and conservatives need to do better at making their case to the American people when it come to the discussion of the entitlement society and the people who rely on some form of government assistance. We need to make the distinction clear to the American people that we oppose those who who abuse the system and support government support for those who truly need it.We need to set up policies that understands this distinction and addresses these problems. 
    I know that reaching out to people with disabilities is a winning message. I've seen it. When Sarah Palin talked about her commitment to help people with disabilities and to make it a priority as Vice President in her 2008 GOP convention speech, she got conservatives Moms and Dads excited and teary eyed. But if Sarah Palin and others want to reach out to the Disability community, they're going to have to mean it since many the GOP rarely follow through with talk of including them in our party or government policies. 
    The conservative philosophy for individuals with disability works. I know because I am an example of it. I have worked hard to overcome discrimination and other obstacles to become one of the handful of Deaf attorneys in the United States. I have received assistance from the government not as a hand out but as a stepping stone to achieving my dreams of becoming an attorney. 
    If the GOP wants to become successful, they need stop playing safe in promoting our message but go out and share that message in places we normally don't share it:   
    What I am talking about is taking the conservative message, a message that stands to benefit everyone in society, to places the GOP often ignores--local African-American and Hispanic church groups, feminist centers, and left-leaning college campuses, to name a few.   
    Will your message face resistance? Yes, and that's okay. It gives you a chance to correct false, media-driven stereotypes about conservatives and conservatism. Will you convert the majority in one afternoon? Of course not; these stereotypes have been inculcated over decades. Opening hearts and minds is a process, not a lunch appointment. 
    If the GOP is serious in winning elections in the future, they're going have to get serious about promoting that message. We don't need to change our core values, principles or beliefs. We already have a wining message. We just need to do better in reaching out to those people and helping them understand that conservatives believe that government needs to get out of the way of those who don't need government and to get involved with those who do need it.
