This is the way the American political system works. Democrats/liberals are the counterweight to Republicans/conservatives. The constant teetering gives the impression of movement, but the status quo rarely changes. This has never been more evident than what has occurred in Congress since Obama was ‘handed his hat’ in the mid-term elections; except nothing has really changed. The teeter has tottered to Republican control of the Congress, yet the policies that Obama has pushed forward still remain in place.
Congratulations, Barack Obama! You've fundamentally transformed the United States from being the #1 economy in the world for well over 100 years, into now sliding back into the #2 slot. What a remarkable milestone...on your way to taking this nation down a few pegs more and making it into just another mediocre socialist pit.
“Free health care!” “Free cell phones!” “I don’t have to make my car payment any more!” Such were the excited ravings that accompanied the political slogan/promise of “Hope and Change.” Really? Is that all hope and change amounts to…more “free stuff”? Given the opportunity, what would you hope for…for yourself, your family, for America? If you were “King of America” what changes would you make? You may protest and say there is no king in America, but history tells a different story.
I spent much of my early twenties participating in American party culture, and I'm lucky I made it through those years relatively unscathed. Looking back, I made a lot of foolish decisions. I put myself in a lot of compromising situations that could have easily taken a dark turn. What I have to say in the following paragraphs, then, does not come from a place of ignorance or unsympathetic idealism.
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) raised a constitutional point of order against the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending that, if sustained, would have sent the bill back to the House to remove amnesty funding. Unfortunately, a group of Republicans joined the Democrats in voting to reject Cruz's point of order and to ignore the serious constitutional problems with the president's executive amnesty.
Theodore Shoebat at shoebat.com Awareness and Action proved that the Left, specifically the homosexual activist movement, is as hypocritical as you might have guessed. Shoebat's group called 13 bakeries that are homosexual-owned or are owned by pro-homosexuals and asked them to make a pro-traditional marriage cake for an event.
As usual, Bill Whittle's Firewall cuts to the bone of the bull. This time, he discusses the "new barbarians" of the Let, namely Michael Brown, Lena Dunham, Tawana Brawley, Patricia Williams, Al Sharpton, the lawless looters of Ferguson...as well as President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. In his summation, this has to be one of the best descriptions of liberalism I have ever heard.
Eric Garner was not strangled. In fact, the coroner did not list suffocation as the cause of death. You cannot scream when you cannot breathe. So on Monday night LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers showed up for pre-game warm-ups against Brooklyn wearing a shirt that read I CAN’T BREATHE!!
This is a story about a black leader named Al Sharpton. He isn't that sharp, and he isn't that honest, but what they hey. When you're a dedicated liberal, you don't have to worry about things like being right and being honest.
Machiavellians and other consequentialists throughout history have argued for an anything goes approach for governing, asserting in effect that “the end justifies the means.” Today’s news is full of the natural outgrowth of that justification for attaining power at all costs, and it is not a one way partisan street.Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
