2012 Presidential Race
Brilliant, and hilarious. How is it that Christians are so wrapped up in this election without the perspective to see that either way, God is in control?
“If you need to pledge allegiance to a nation for security, your God isn’t big enough!”
Given the big-spending, high-taxing, debt-soaking nature of the modern “conservative” movement, should we be surprised that this plan pleasantly pontificates as supporting “self-reliant, American capitalism” while simultaneously defining exactly what the modern conservative movement has become?
Supporting these red-tie wearing big government stooges out to drain the productive while reading from Teleprompter A instead of teleprompter B is an insult to most “conservative’s” intelligence.
Here are some fun facts from Paul Ryan’s “Path to Prosperity” Budget Plan:
1) Increases Federal Government Tax Collections from $2.444 Trillion to $4.601 Trillion, a $2.157 Trillion, 88% Federal Tax Collection Increase.
2) Increases Federal Government Spending from $3.624 Trillion to $4.888 Trillion. A $1.264 Trillion, 35% Increase Federal Government Spending.
3) ADDS $4 Trillion to the National Debt.
Please forgive me if I don’t commence clapping and cartwheeling at the stark differences between Romney and Obombya during our chance to “Save America” in this election.
I’m getting hammered by conservative friends lately who are freaked out by ObamaCare, Obama 2.0′s Supreme Court appointments, etc. Watching this, it is just preposterous to think we can trust Romney’s current positions on anything important. Except of course, his desire for war, more bailouts, and assaults on The Constitution/civil rights.
Will we be brought to a place of suffering and humiliation so that the Kingdom of God can manifest? That may be the way of the world, time will tell.
Psalm 146:3 says all that needs to be said, “Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.”
The excellent Ben Swann reports in the below video on Romney and Obama’s claims about the economy, our deficit, and how they plan to reduce it.
After listening to their plans to cut and keep certain programs; but never deal with our insanely over-funded and counter productive military presence around the world, or the entrenched but thoroughly un-Constitutional departments of commerce, education, energy, etc., neither candidate comes up with numbers stand up under fire.
Who did come up with a plan to reduce the deficit by $1T first-year, cut back our military offense while maintaining our defense, give young people a way out of the Social Security Ponzi Pit and BALANCE THE BUDGET in three years!?
Readers of this blog will likely not wonder long to come up with the answer: the honorable and wise, Dr. Ron Paul. Ben Swann reported on Dr. Paul’s plan a few months back as well.
Psy’s video is very funny, and has an incredible catchy beat—despite the fact that the song is about a girl that likes coffee (???).
Sure Obama is bad, has run up a huge debt and holds many views that are anti-thetical to the principles that have made our country successful over the years. If you don’t like him, I get it, and I respect you for wanting to improve our country.
But we have come to a point in our history with “conservatices” and “liberals” becoming far too similar, with Obama and Romney being major examples of that terrible trend. See 40 reasons why here and another 100 reasons why here.
If you like Romney and hate Obama, fine, let’s be optimistic about the future with Romney and Ryan in office. Let’s just be honest please.
Billionaire financier George Soros thinks that, if Mitt Romney wins the presidency, there will be “little difference” between him and Barack Obama in the White House.
Soros offered the reassuring news to liberals across Europe during an interview this week in Davos, Switzerland.
As policymakers from Hong Kong to Canada pressed Greece and its creditors to strike a deal to cut the nation’s debt, Soros pressed in on GOP presidential candidate Romney:
“Well, look, either you’ll have an extremist conservative, be it Gingrich or Santorum, in which case I think it will make a big difference which of the two comes in,” Soros told Reuters in a videotaped interview.
“If it’s between Obama and Romney, there isn’t all that much difference except for the crowd that they bring with them.”
Soros added, “Romney would have to take Gingrich or Santorum as a vice president and you probably have some pretty extreme candidates for the Supreme Court.”
“So it won’t be that great a difference,” he concluded, if Romney becomes president.
Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh described Soros’ move this way: “He’s endorsing Romney. ‘Romney, that’s cool, no difference, I could go either way that way.’”
Soros also told Reuters that many hedge fund managers in the United States are backing Romney because Obama wants to raise their taxes.
Soros predicted that “there won’t be a great deal of enthusiasm on either side of the battleground. It will be more civilized than the previous elections have been.”
After the ridiculous farce and fraud that was the RNC, seven-time Presidential advisor Doug Wead gives his thoughts on the events, their repercussions, and the future.
Ben Swann does a great job describing the (criminal?) circus here.
He remains optimistic for the future, but realistic about the corrupt state of The Republican party.
Why am I surprised?
The blatant disregard for rules, voting procedures and integrity has shown through at The RNC and the reality of Romney-Ryan 2012 is clear: we’re going to do whatever we want, whenever we want, because we can, to get elected and screw over the voting rights of Americans.
God bless ‘em.
If they win, expect to hear a lot of the same crap Obama said about Bush and why the economy didn’t recover. “If only Obama hadn’t screwed up so bad, we would be out of this mess.” Blah blah blah. One man was different but because he didn’t want to bomb the world he was shut out and cast aside. History will show the truth, what ever it may be.
The future will be bright, but our politicians are unlikely to deliver us from evil. Only God will do that, and apparently—although he chose Ron to show us many things—he hasn’t chosen him to be the savior we’d hoped he was.
Patience, prayer and passion will get us where we want to go.
The below article from Iowa delegate and witness to the madness Angie Davis is very “interesting.”
Naturally, Romney has said he doesn’t know anything about these and other shenanigans, but, that is statistically improbably, if not impossible.
GOP Destroys Integrity of National Convention, Flagrantly Cheats Ron Paul Out of Nomination
via The Unconventional Conservative
“It is not because men’s desires are strong that they act ill; it is because their consciences are weak.”
John Stuart Mill, On Liberty
I am so frustrated and angry with the blatant cheating that went on at the Republican National Convention in Tampa today. I am ashamed of my national party’s actions. I sat openmouthed, flabbergasted, appalled at the actions that they took to shut the liberty folks out.
Look…maybe Ron Paul had no chance to win. Romney had more delegates (though some ofthose were seated by deception and coercion.) That is not the point now. Do we, as Republicans, have so little respect for others that it is okay to cheat a 30 year Republican Congressman out of a legitimate nomination that he earned? By following the rules, no less?
Is it also okay that we completely ignore the will of the elected delegates who have achieved plurality and submitted nomination papers? Those papers were delivered to Preibus by Iowa’s Lieutenant Governor, Kim Reynolds, the Convention Secretary, over an hour before the call for nomination, the rolling roll call. She claims that it was her job to accept and deliver them, and that anything after that was the will of the Republican National Committee. Therefore, the will of the RNC was to cheat Ron Paul out of a legitimate nomination and to break their own rules.
