Charlotte Web of Lies: The DNC Day 2

Day Two of the Charlotte Web of Lies leads to some real fun.

To recap in the last 48 hours we are worse off than we were 4 years again and we’re better off than we were 4 years ago, God doesn’t exist, God does exist, Jerusalem isn’t the capital of Israel, Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, relations with Israel have never been better, relations with Israel have never been worse, Obama will be speaking in an open stadium, Obama will not speaking in an open stadium.  I know politicians like flip-flopping, but usually it’s that their positions change over years, months, sometimes weeks…this is the first time I have seen positions change with tide without having to invoke hyperbole.

Then of course there is that joke of an acceptance of the party platform, which seemed to have over half the delegates not accepting it because it wasn’t left enough but Villeregosa saying it has the needed two-thirds necessary to pass…this is what Democrats apparently consider democracy.

Tonight was a bit sparse on interesting points…yes there was the near constant drivel on Republicans are evil, Republicans are going to destroy medicare, Republicans want to skewer the poor, roast them on spits and eat their flayed carcasses…blah, blah, blah…

But what do you expect.

They had Elizabeth “Dances with Bullshit” Warren.

“Republicans say they don’t believe in government. Sure they do. They believe in government to help themselves and their powerful friends. After all, Mitt Romney’s the guy who said corporations are people.No, Gov. Romney, corporations are not people.”

Thank you Liz for showing you know less than nothing about history, law, or the nature of how an economy works.  The legal fiction of corporate personhood needs to exist for the economy to work…I dread what the world would be like without that particular legal fiction…but you could just look at what the world looked like before corporate personhood (i.e. what was the world like before the 1600’s).

“People have hearts,”

Except maybe Democrats who are willing to let Israel be destroyed in a second Holocaust, are willing to let the innocent  in Syria and Egypt be butchered by the close friends of this Democratic president, and we’re all more than willing to do nothing in Iraq, Afghanistan, Darfur under a Republican president as well as do nothing in Rwanda, Somalia, and almost Bosnia (until Tony Blair dragged Clinton in).  Also as I recall the most recent study on charity shows it’s Republicans who give the most, not Democrats…but what do we heartless Republicans know about having a heart.  It is so much more important to rant and rave about giving and caring than to actually show it in action, often humbly and not seeking praise or attention.

“they have kids,”

You know I’m pro-choice…but given the Democrat’s party’s eagerness to fund every abortion they can, keep in mind they removed the line that abortions should be rare from the platform, this line rings a little hollow. Also this is just disingenuous from the party that is absolutely opposed to school choice and school reform.  You know the most important thing in helping kids.

“they get jobs,”

this one’s too easy, but I have to anyway…they get jobs?  Not under this president!

“they get sick,”

Well I’m certainly sick of your pointless drivel.

“they cry, they dance.”

I will be dancing and crying tears of joy come the night of November 6th when the asshole is voted out of office.

“They live, they love, and they die.”

They’ll be doing a lot more of the last one if we have Obamacare.

“And that matters. That matters because we don’t run this country for corporations, we run it for people.”

They run this country.  Because that doesn’t have any disturbing totalitarian overtones…no, none whatsoever.

“And that’s why we need Barack Obama.”…to take a long walk off a short pier.

Sandra “Julia” Fluke was dull and whiny as usual from her first words:

“Some of you may remember that earlier this year, Republicans shut me out of a hearing on contraception”

No Sandra you were locked out of a hearing on religious freedom…something you know nothing about, so you had no right to be there. It went downhill from there.  It was all whiny drivel about the freedom to get birth control…the law student apparently has never heard of the Griswold v. Connecticut which guarantees the right to buy birth control (just not to have others provide it for you) and (and you’d be an idiot to think you’d get ¾’s of the states to pass an amendment against that or to think that even conservative judges are about to overturn that one).  So really this is about as made up an issue as you can get.

I could make fun of every dimwitted line of Nancy Pelosi’s speech…but I think it’s more fun that she was caught this weekend saying that the secret to Democrat victory in the House is gerrymandering.

And then there was pathological liar, user and abuser of women (not to mention sometimes rapist…yeah between him and Kennedy it shows they really love women) Bill Clinton.

“A man who ran for President to change the course of an already weak economy and then just six weeks before the election, saw it suffer the biggest collapse since the Great Depression.”

And you don’t think that sudden drop might have been caused by the fact that every business could read the writing on the wall, that Socialism-boy was going to win, and it might be time to batten down for a long storm.  But it would take intelligence to see a correlation between those two events.

“A man who stopped the slide into depression”

The Dems seem to really like the word depression all of a sudden.  Not that there is a single iota of data to suggest we were on the verge of a depression…but it’s fun to see how the economic troubles of 2008, while  a fixed moment in history, have somehow gotten steadily worse as time goes on.

“I want to nominate a man cool on the outside but burning for America on the inside.”

I would too Bill.  You’ll have to settle for someone who is inept on the outside and burning with rage against America on the inside.

“A man who had the good sense to marry Michelle Obama.”

You know, if you were to just read that line on paper without knowing the context, but knowing what a vicious, hateful creature Michelle is, you might think this was an insult.

Now read these two paragraphs:

“In Tampa, we heard a lot of talk about how the President and the Democrats don’t believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everyone to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. […]

“We Democrats think the country works better with a strong middle class, real opportunities for poor people to work their way into it and a relentless focus on the future, with business and government working together to promote growth and broadly shared prosperity. We think “we’re all in this together” is a better philosophy than “you’re on your own.”

So you don’t believe in free enterprise and the individual.  You just said as much Bill.  You see the economy as “with business and government working together” we see it as business and individuals working together.  And then of course we get to the fact that Democratic policies hurt middle class and ruin opportunities for poor people.  Really what it is the Democrats believe that “we’re in this together and if I can’t succeed then you can’t succeed” where the Republicans are “Grow up, you must reap what you sow, individuals may help you, but government isn’t there to be your parent.

“Who’s right? Well since 1961, the Republicans have held the White House 28 years, the Democrats 24. In those 52 years, our economy produced 66 million private sector jobs. What’s the jobs score? Republicans 24 million, Democrats 42 million!”

Convenient he leaves out the economic powerhouse of Eisenhower.   Also nice that he leaves in Kennedy with his cut taxes pro-growth policies that would be more at home in the GOP these days.  But of those Republicans he mentions, Nixon, Ford, and the Bushes were big government liberals in policy.  And most of that job growth you list bill came from Kennedy’s tax cuts or you riding the wave of Reagan plus a Republican Congress.  But why should facts matter.  Who is right?  Well that all depends on what the definition of “right” is?  If “right” means you’re actually going to tie your conclusion to facts and reality then it’s not you or Obama.

“It turns out that advancing equal opportunity and economic empowerment is both morally right and good economics.”

Yes and it’s a damn good thing Republicans were there to end Democrat supported Jim Crow.  Now if only your party could support education reform that would lead to true equality of opportunity.

“I am grateful to President George W. Bush for PEPFAR, which is saving the lives of millions of people in poor countries and to both Presidents Bush for the work we’ve done together after the South Asia tsunami, Hurricane

That’s the basic argument right there.

Katrina and the Haitian earthquake.  Through my foundation, in America and around the world, I work with Democrats, Republicans and Independents who are focused on solving problems and seizing opportunities, not fighting each other.”

That’s the self aggrandizing egocentric Bill Clinton I remember.  The kind of man who could exploit a young woman for his sexual gratification and never feel a qualm about it.  Kind of reminds me of the ego of someone else.

“They think government is the enemy, and compromise is weakness.”

Big intrusive government is the enemy.  I think someone realized that when they said “the era of big government is over.”  And real compromise isn’t weakness (like when Democrats made suggestions on how to improve the Ryan plan and Ryan not only didn’t fight them but eagerly put those changes in)…it’s the media and modern left’s definition of compromise: “Do everything we say, get nothing you want or you’re an obstructionist who doesn’t believe in compromise.” We have do not problem with rational compromise, we have a problem with strong-arming masquerading as rationality.  And yes we do have our more line in the sand moments, but only because we’ve seen it’s the only way to get half of what we want, anything less and you bulldoze over the RINO faction of our party.

“One of the main reasons America should re-elect President Obama is that he is still committed to cooperation.”

I mean just look at the billions he’s given lunatics in Egypt to fund their massacre of women, gays, Christians and Jews. Very cooperative on our part.

“He appointed Republican Secretaries of Defense,”

Technically he just asked the Bush Secretary of Defense to stay on so he wouldn’t have to show his liberal foreign policy too soon.

“President Obama’s record on national security is a tribute to his strength, and judgment, and to his preference for inclusion and partnership over partisanship.”

You know if you ignore Iran with a nuke, betraying Israel, Obama and Alexrod personally leaking classified information, not supporting the democratic uprising in Iran, letting Tunisia, Lybia, and Egypt fall to people more psychotic than before, not doing anything in Syria, and of course wanting to be more flexible with Vladamir…nope nothing to complain about his foreign policy.

“He also tried to work with Congressional Republicans on Health Care, debt reduction, and jobs, but that didn’t work out so well.”

Because he’s a crazy socialist and took a my-way-or-the-highway attitude to all of those things and offered no compromise on anything.

“Probably because, as the Senate Republican leader, in a remarkable moment of candor, said two years before the election, their number one priority was not to put America back to work, but to put President Obama out of work”

Bill, he said nothing about not wanting America to get jobs…he said we need to get rid of Obama, probably because Obama is the single greatest impediment to growth there could ever be.  We want growth. We want jobs.  We want to earn piles of money and we want everyone to have the opportunity to earn as much as they want…but that isn’t going to happen as long as Socialist-in-Chief is around.  Bill, you were annoying, this guy is destructive.

“In Tampa, the Republican argument against the President’s re-election was pretty simple: we left him a total mess, he hasn’t cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in.”

Actually I believe the line is that our party for too long was in the hands of pseudo-liberal compassionate conservative who basically acted like Democrats, they in collusion with the Democrats screwed everything up since 1992 and now real conservatives are back.  But this brings up a general flaw in the Democratic party logic.  They claim the Tea Party is the new extreme wing of right.  But they claim that the Tea Party is going to do the same things that the old liberal wing did to screw things up.  Unless you’re a Democrat you can’t logically have it both ways.

“I like the argument for President Obama’s re-election a lot better. He inherited a deeply damaged economy, put a floor under the crash, began the long hard road to recovery, and laid the foundation for a modern, more well-balanced economy that will produce millions of good new jobs, vibrant new businesses, and lots of new wealth for the innovators.”

Bill you’re mixing up Reagan and Obama.  Reagan laid out the road for prosperity and fixed the country in three years. Obama keeps laying the road for total destruction, and low and behold we’re on it.

I may not agree with Newt on everything…but it was Newt who got the 90’s working, not Bill

“Though employment is growing, banks are beginning to lend and even housing prices are picking up a bit, too many people don’t feel it.”

Employment isn’t growing, and what growth there is is in underemployment.  Banks are loaning only because Obama is strong-arming them, like you did, which is creating a new problem.  And I hate to tell you this, but houses are still overpriced.  The high prices are not a sign of a healthy economy they’re a sign of another bubble.

“I experienced the same thing in 1994 and early 1995. Our policies were working and the economy was growing but most people didn’t feel it yet. By 1996, the economy was roaring, halfway through the longest peacetime expansion in American history.”

Maybe because you worked with the Republican Congress, instead of refusing to pass a budget.

“President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did. No President – not me or any of my predecessors could have repaired all the damage in just four years.”

Reagan could have.  Reagan did.  The Carter Economy was much worse than what Obama inherited.  And yet by turning to capitalism instead of socialism, things seemed to work out.

I’m done…Clinton keeps lying and distorting and making crap up.  It’s Slick Willie, did you expect anything else…but dear God did this run long.

Ramblings from Conservative Cathy – Queen for a Day

Are any of you old enough to remember the show Queen for a Day?  Basically in my opinion it was a contest for the best sob story to be picked “Queen for a Day” receiving gifts and such along with walking down a ramp with a fur cloak and Tiara and then sitting on a Throne.  Wow, it was so … actually disgusting….  If you read Atlas Shrugged the scene where all the workers at the Motor Company had to stand in front of everyone and beg for money or things is a good example of my take of this show and exactly what I am comparing this speech to!

I only heard a small portion of Michelle O. speech but the part I heard reminded me of this TV show.  So I looked up the transcript and thought I would add my comments as I see fit……

Over the past few years as First Lady, I have had the extraordinary privilege of traveling all across this country.

 

Of course it is about her – how about ‘Thank you America for allowing me this privilege and also let’s not forget about traveling around the world also.’

I’ve seen it in teachers in a near-bankrupt school district who vowed to keep teaching without pay.

She still doesn’t get what the big deal is about the flag…

 

Well this one took a lot of research but a district in PA was going bankrupt in January 2012 (although with research you find it has had serious financial problems since before 2005 – as that is when the state stepped in for the first time) and the teachers/staff said they would work as long as they could for free (or until they were hired on somewhere else).  Now there are a ton of stories in Jan and Feb 2012 of this story but up until then the teachers apparently had been paid and there are no other stories I could find that stated that they were not paid.  I did find this update story in June and I would assume from reading it that they all received their pay – Oh by the way they all sued the State in 2 different suits.

I’ve seen it in people who become heroes at a moment’s notice, diving into harm’s way to save others…flying across the country to put out a fire…driving for hours to bail out a flooded town.

And I’ve seen it in our men and women in uniform and our proud military families…in wounded warriors who tell me they’re not just going to walk again, they’re going to run, and they’re going to run marathons…in the young man blinded by a bomb in Afghanistan who said, simply, “…I’d give my eyes 100 times again to have the chance to do what I have done and what I can still do.”  Every day, the people I meet inspire me…every day, they make me proud…every day they remind me how blessed we are to live in the greatest nation on earth.

Well I am glad that from Miss “I have never been proud of my country before” she has come to realize how wonderful the American people are.

Our life before moving to Washington was filled with simple joys…Saturdays at soccer games, Sundays at grandma’s house…and a date night for Barack and me was either dinner or a movie, because as an exhausted mom, I couldn’t stay awake for both.

There is a whole world of mothers who work outside and inside the home and I can assure you that 1 day a week they are not so tired that they can not do dinner and a movie because they were going to eat anyway – Is there anyone that can relate to this statement, because I seriously can’t. 

And the truth is, I loved the life we had built for our girls…I deeply loved the man I had built that life with…and I didn’t want that to change if he became President.

I loved Barack just the way he was.

Was there no discussion previously about life as President and how the family would be affected? 

And then this one…

…to me, he was still the guy who’d picked me up for our dates in a car that was so rusted out, I could actually see the pavement going by through a hole in the passenger side door…he was the guy whose proudest possession was a coffee table he’d found in a dumpster, and whose only pair of decent shoes was half a size too small.

They met in 1989 (a period of good financial economics for America) and he was employed as a Summer Associate at the corporate law firm she was working at.  I am not an attorney but it seems to me that it would not make a good impression if you showed up for work in a car with rust holes in it – although as an associate you would not be expected to own a Mercedes, I think you must make a decent impression so the shoes ½ a size too small??  And by the way when you start dating someone do you discuss his or her shoe sizes?

But when Barack started telling me about his family – that’s when I knew I had found a kindred spirit, someone whose values and upbringing were so much like mine.

Now are those the stories that he made up for books and publicity or his real life?  Why not tell us exactly what those values are specifically because examples given are in opposition to actual actions.

You see, Barack and I were both raised by families who didn’t have much in the way of money or material possessions but who had given us something far more valuable

Barack’s background as far as I can tell:

Mother: Was an Anthropologist with a Doctorate and worked for the government, Ford Foundation and Women’s World Banking – none of which sounds poor to me.

Grandparents had a home with a little bungalow on the back of the property.  Again does not sound poor to me.  His first home with his mother was another 4-bedroom home with a bungalow in the back.  Obama went to a prestigious private school not the public schools in Hawaii. 

Michelle’s Background as far as I can tell:

She was raised on the top floor of a 2 story home (Parents rented small apartment from Great Aunt who lived downstairs) in South Shore Chicago known as an upper middle class area.  Vacationed in a cabin in White Cloud Michigan annually.  Went to High School with Jesse Jackson’s daughter.   

 Basically they might not have been the 1% but they both were raised in solid middle class families, not any major struggles, basically what many of us encountered  (maybe better).  So why would you want to make people think you were “poor” when you were fairly normal with fairly normal issues/problems?

My father was a pump operator at the city water plant, and he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when my brother and I were young.

And even as a kid, I knew there were plenty of days when he was in pain…I knew there were plenty of mornings when it was a struggle for him to simply get out of bed.

You would think then that she would have a little empathy for Ann Romney.

And when he returned home after a long day’s work, my brother and I would stand at the top of the stairs to our little apartment, patiently waiting to greet him…watching as he reached down to lift one leg, and then the other, to slowly climb his way into our arms.

 Really – would you not go and assist your poor father?  How on earth did he maintain a job?  I’m still stuck on the fact that they both just stood at the top of the stairs and watched him and waited for him to come to them – WOW.  Those are values I wish I had passed on to my children – NOT!

 

But my dad still had to pay a tiny portion of that tuition himself.

And every semester, he was determined to pay that bill right on time, even taking out loans when he fell short.

Again, could they not work to help pay this small tuition amount – great values again.

And as I got to know Barack, I realized that even though he’d grown up all the way across the country, he’d been brought up just like me.

Did he also learn how to use people and expect that someone else should sacrifice for your benefit?

Remember this was a woman who was never proud of her country until they appointed her husband dictator.

Barack was raised by a single mother who struggled to pay the bills, and by grandparents who stepped in when she needed help.

I do not see how this is possible with her jobs and assistance from Grandparents, her second husband had a good job with an oil company (one of the reasons she chose to leave him) so when they separated he would have paid child support for their child and probably alimony so I do not see where the issues would have been. Of course we never know when we are not personally involved but why would you make an issue of it?  I do not see that it would have exceeded anyone else’s normal daily struggles.  Maybe I am cold…. But he seemed to have a better childhood than  most of us. 

Like so many American families, our families weren’t asking for much.

They didn’t begrudge anyone else’s success or care that others had much more than they did…in fact, they admired it.

I have not noticed that value in either Michelle’s or Obama’s attitude on our policies.  They are very envious of the so-called 1% although they seem to like to live that lifestyle – are willing to destroy our culture to hurt those 1 percenters.  Nothing in anything they have said or done previously demonstrates the above statement.

They simply believed in that fundamental American promise that, even if you don’t start out with much, if you work hard and do what you’re supposed to do, then you should be able to build a decent life for yourself and an even better life for your kids and grandkids.

 

Until Obama became President as his policies are definitely hurting that theme.

 

We learned about dignity and decency – that how hard you work matters more than how much you make…that helping others means more than just getting ahead yourself.

 

Now we see it coming through – “hard work matters more then what you make “– what does what you make have to do with anything?  I was taught that hard work was rewarded (and I believe it is) but no one mentioned what people make.  Although I was taught that those that earned more than I probably risked more and worked even harder.  “helping others means more than just getting ahead yourself.”

Again what does one have to do with the other.  You should always try to get ahead (meaning reaching your potential – be good at whatever you try, etc.) but you should also help others when it is meaningful to you.  There is a misconception out there that Christianity means you MUST help others – you need to reread your bible – you should help when it pleases you and when someone is deserving of help but if you do it as a requirement then you are missing the point altogether (another discussion altogether).

Well this speech is tedious so I am skipping so much now unless I really feel strongly about it.

–         that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean…and we were taught to value everyone’s contribution and treat everyone with respect.

 

It is the odd combination of values that I find strange/amusing/distressing – What does the fact that most of us have parents, go to clean schools have to do with our own personal success?  By the way I was taught/learned that there is no such thing as a bad job just bad workers.

 

That’s who we are.

 

Again leaves me concerned in many many ways….

And I’ve seen how the issues that come across a President’s desk are always the hard ones – the problems where no amount of data or numbers will get you to the right answer…the judgment calls where the stakes are so high, and there is no margin for error.

And as President, you can get all kinds of advice from all kinds of people.

But at the end of the day, when it comes time to make that decision, as President, all you have to guide you are your values, and your vision, and the life experiences that make you who you are.

 

Please remember this photo was taken at a remembrence of D-Day…she looks awfully pissed that the facists lost.

This paragraph also reveals to me that neither one of them ever held a real job and are very naïve – how could you not know the above information – maybe not the experience of it to the degree a President does but my gosh doesn’t every President age 10 years or more in 4 years – how much of a shock could it have been.  Had they never been responsible for a decision previously in life?  It is these types of statements that worry me and have from the beginning.

 

That’s why he cut taxes for working families and small businesses and fought to get the auto industry back on its feet.

 

Seriously?  All he did was continue the previous tax cuts/same current rates (but did not support making it permanent), which he now wants to remove for at least some of us.  He added to our debt at a higher percentage, which will affect us all as the years roll by.  He has destroyed the energy industry (coal), a basic of all business and everything we do (electricity) and if you don’t think that will affect us all very personally you don’t contemplate much.  The auto industry would have survived on it’s own it just would have been different companies but how many stockholders lost money (that’s now is in the courts), how many non union employees lost out, how many dealerships were closed and the tax payer cost for the lost value that we covered – yes I think the only winners were the unions.   And only Democrats believe that the auto industry is back on top and achieving – read some business reports and future revenue reviews.

 

That’s how he brought our economy from the brink of collapse to creating jobs again – jobs you can raise a family on, good jobs right here in the United States of America.

 

This one really irritates me.  Recession inherited by Ronald Regan

I am using a left leaning site to show that although the Democrats don’t want to admit it the policies of the Obama Administration have caused the extent of this recession.  Actually the beginning numbers were pretty close and I submit it is how they were handled that make the difference – there never is a non debatable way to prove something that did not occur but if you look at other recessions then you should be able to with common sense realize that government intervention and the FED that causes these issues to increase and last longer.

Recession in early 1900’s. (this was the last time that the government was not involved in the economy and remember that we were lead into the Roaring 20’s)

Bush (W) inherited Recession

And of course there have been recessions in Democratic Administrations – amazingly the economy (like everything else in life) goes up and goes down. 

The debate is and always will be in how it is handled – I think the recession of the early 1900’s with no government intervention shows that it is normal cycles and everyone should stay out of them.  Lowering of taxes has always brought everyone out of recessions and increase in government spending has always increased the depth and length of each.

 

“…our grandparents should be able to afford their medicine…our kids should be able to see a doctor when they’re sick…and no one in this country should ever go broke because of an accident or illness.

And he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care…that’s what my husband stands for.”

Another debate that only the future will reveal but look fairly at what occurred when HMO’s came in to being and if you don’t believe this will be worse then you live in a fantasy land with the Obama’s. 

I will tell you that many doctors will retire/change occupations, many people will end up not being treated in time, and most people will not be able to have access to the “Best Medical Care” anymore.  The only reason you will no longer go broke is you will not be allowed to have that care unless you have cash up front!  If I were actually able to make my own medical choices I would not involve government at all!

 

I love that for Barack, there is no such thing as “us” and “them” – he doesn’t care whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican, or none of the above…he knows that we all love our country…and he’s always ready to listen to good ideas…he’s always looking for the very best in everyone he meets.

 

I am at a loss – he is the one that has set Americans against each other whether it is gender, sexual orientation, income levels, race or political party.  Democrats lead (I use the word loosely) by Obama saying the most vicious of things and no apology from Obama or direction as to proper speech except again to Republicans.  He has never listened to anyone else’s ideas – I know he is the decision maker but he is making decision in areas where constitutionally he is not allowed or Presidents have never ventured previously.  He was not elected dictator so he should listen to the people to some degree and if he disagrees then his job is to explain why and why he is doing what he is doing but most of it is not discovered untill Friday dumps.

 

And he reminds me that we are playing a long game here…and that change is hard, and change is slow, and it never happens all at once.

 

I always thought of it as LIFE not a game and although we all have told jokes to that degree I don’t appreciate our President looking at his job, our country and our future as a “game”.  If he has a long range vision, why doesn’t he tell us what the end results look like exactly and then we can debate the road in-between if everyone is in agreement of the end goal and if not we can debate that end goal and then debate the road there.

 

And if our parents and grandparents could toil and struggle for us…if they could raise beams of steel to the sky, send a man to the moon, and connect the world with the touch of a button…then surely we can keep on sacrificing and building for our own kids and grandkids.

 

I think again they are missing the point – sacrifice for someone else is a choice not a mandate.

 

“You must reelect my husband…there are still countries I haven’t visted on the tax payer dime.”

And if so many brave men and women could wear our country’s uniform and sacrifice their lives for our most fundamental rights…then surely we can do our part as citizens of this great democracy to exercise those rights…surely, we can get to the polls and make our voices heard on Election Day.

What about ensuring that those same soldiers are given every chance to have their vote count!

 

If farmers and blacksmiths could win independence from an empire…if immigrants could leave behind everything they knew for a better life on our shores.

 

Did she forget about those 1% who were actually the founding fathers?  They just dragged everyone else along with them but it was those educated thinkers who really started it.

 

…then surely, surely we can give everyone in this country a fair chance at that great American Dream.

I thought that’s what we did here in America until Democrats wanted to bring benefits and special rights to chosen groups and no longer allow people to stand or fall on their own merits.

 

I will end this with the fact that I trust Obama to further destroy our country, do his best to make us a third world nation, do anything that makes unions happy, destroy medical care in America and continue with his wife to be the most self centered people I have ever seen in politics and in my life.  I am so tired of seeing pictures, statues, dedications, etc. to a man who has accomplished nothing in his life except maybe 2 great girls (time will tell) and blaming others for all problems and taking credit for everything that he did not do.

If these people really believe the rhetoric they would use the term “I” less often and use “we”, “us” “Americans” more often but it always seems to be all about them!
