The following is a political discussion that I was having with some friends. It turned out to be of such detail and work I thought that I would share it here.
We were debating which side is better suited to lead the county, the republicans or the democrats. I said neither. You need to forget the R or the D and look at what they have done how they have voted in the past and look at their character. Then cast your vote for the best person and not simply by the party.
I had such great hope for Obama. Here is a guy that had the ability to unite the races. Here is a guy that could show that this victim mentality is self-imposed defeatism. You can in fact do anything, be anything you want to be. The only thing stopping you is you. Instead of this however; he weighs in on a case that would barely make the nightly news in Florida and makes it a national talking point, bringing in every race-baiter in the world further dividing this country. Has Obama got everything wrong? I would not say that. On racial healing the two opportunities he had “the cops acted stupidly, and if I had a son he would look just like him” did not help this country. As far as I can remember no sitting president has ever weighed in on such matters, period! I know, and most probably you do as well; that he like “most politicians” are paid for by special interests groups. Avenue K is where it all happens and we need someone to go to Washington and stop all of this. If memory serves he said he was going to do this. He would not allow a lobbyist in the white house. He has them in his administration. How we fix it is another story because I firmly believe that once you go to Washington, you loose your soul; probably to the highest bidder.
I don’t think in my lifetime we will fix this. I fear for our children and their children. I do know that when you spend money like this administration has done; something is going to happen to cause a reset. I have read history and I know about the Weimer Republic and what happened as a result of hyper inflation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weimar_Republic We have seen this most recently in Greece. I am guessing that is why the president signed directive 302518. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-05-29/meet-directive-302518-granting-obama-authority-use-military-force-against-civilians. Can you imagine our children taking up arms against their parents to quell an uprising as a response to an out of control government? That is what the 2cnd amendment is all about. The government should fear the people.
We are now over $17trillion in debt and this administration is responsible for a good chunk of it. Yes, Bush started it but, adding to it like they have done is simply irresponsible. On top of this we have skyrocketing energy cost and an administration that is punishing American Business’s and our number one source of energy which we have in abundance “coal” is off the table. Where is the coal going, to energy hungry countries like China who don’t care about burning coal cleanly. Global warming is a problem for America to deal with.
Now they want the rich to pay for college loans. Like Reagan once said, “vote with your feet.” What do you think the rich and business owners are going to do? Those that can move their business to some other country will and those that can shelter their money will and those that can move to a country that is friendlier to wealthy people will.
We see that in Texas here today as business’s and people are moving here because of our friendly environment we have towards businesses.
Truth be told, we have been bringing our system closer and closer to Socialism since Wilson. One fee, one tax at a time, like turning the heat on the water; slowly the frog will boil to death. If we are not a socialist country already we soon will be as there are more people on the government tit now that anytime in history. While people think that this is a good thing, the truth is the government is hurting those that need the most by not giving them a hand up but a hand out; which can stop at anytime!
Wealthy people are already moving from New York as they have this same mentality of socking it to the rich.
When the dust settles who will be left to clean up the mess? Where will the people be that caused it? As long as politicians are funded to the tune of multiple millions of dollars for campaign funding, we have no hope. We will have the best government that money can buy…
Americans are slowly waking up. I think this backlash we are seeing with Tea Party Candidates winning elections here and there is America saying, what we have been doing is not working so let’s do something else. They may be right as the Tea Party vets those who they sponsor.
It is time for some non-lawyers to take the lead. It is time for some business men who know how to balance a budget, who don’t take a pay check until every one else is paid first. It is time for someone who still respects the flag, and honors the men and women who protect it with their lives to take the helm.
