And we’re told every single day by the leftist-oriented media talking head propagandists that any true conservative has absolutely no chance of ever winning the presidency.
Mind you, we also have the same ACTUAL history being replayed on a regular basis: Republicans listen to these leftist talking heads and opt for a RINO – as in “Republican In Name Only” denoting a candidate who is nowhere even CLOSE to being a true principled conservative – for their nominee on the assumption that said RINO will be able to capture the hearts and minds of the morally idiotic undecided voters. But once we have committed to the rationale that the left gives us that a more liberal candidate is a better candidate, the left does the “Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown” trick: they proceed to demonize our RINO and literally give him bloody fangs a la John McCain:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, speaking on the floor of the United States Senate, assured America that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid his taxes in years and he had the proof. The fact that Harry Reid is a diseased liar and a truly demon-possessed creature was left out of the picture.
Democrats play the game of “Death by a Thousand Cuts” when it comes to destroying Republican candidates with lies. Only of course it’s a TRILLION cuts as the lies and slander and lunatic demonization piles on and on and on.
That said, it truly IS a difficult problem that a conservative Republican nominee for president is in when it comes to issues such as immigration and homosexual marriage and the like. It often seems, in our truly diseased culture, that the only way a politician has a chance is to be as evil and as toxic as the culture has become.
Ah, but we have an out now. And we have it thanks to Obama.
If you’re a true, rabid, die-hard, vicious conservative and – for the sake of argument – you truly want to punish your enemies and reward your friends the way Obama has done to his enemies on the right and for his friends on the left – what can you do to get elected?
Just lie, lie and then lie some more.
How did Barack Obama resolve his problem with homosexual marriage in 2008? He said something that everyone now knows was never true. He simply lied like hell. Homosexual marriage was what it was convenient for it to be for Obama’s political expediency until homosexual marriage was what it was convenient for it to be for Obama’s political expediency.
How about selling major economic plans? Again, just lie. Make stuff up. Obama sure as hell did that with his boondoggle stimulus that promised the moon and delivered a mountain of bovine feces. Obama added $3.27 trillion to the debt and gave the economy a shot of raw sewage in the arm.
Want to take over a sixth of the economy? Lie like hell first and foremost. Hey, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. If you like your health plan you can keep your health plan. And my health plan will reduce costs by $2,500 for a family. Even though it will do the exact opposite.
National security? Hey, promise to restore America’s prestige and make the nation stronger and greater when in fact you’re going to do the EXACT freaking opposite.
Start your campaign by promising you won’t run – only to lie. Assure the country that you “can unequivocally say” you won’t do what you will do. Fund your campaign by promising that you’ll take federal matching funds. And then break your promise. Tell America you’re going to be a new politician and then hold more fundraisers than the previous five presidents COMBINED. Raise more money than any politician who has ever lived while demonizing and slandering your opponent for the money he’s raised. Just make sure that whatever the hell you say you’re going to do that you use the IRS as a thug agency to rabidly attack your opponents. Because if being a dishonest liar without shame, without honor, without integrity, without decency, without any virtue of any kind worked so well for Obama, why the hell not?
If you follow Obama’s example, you can say WHATEVER you need to say, get yourself elected, and then do whatever you’re going to do. All the while demonizing everybody else around you.
So, yeah, say the Jeb Bush line. Hell, say it at least 37 times on major venues. And then after you’re elected, deport every damn ONE of the up-to 20 million illegal immigrants. I mean, kick down every damn door in America and drag them out screaming by their hair just because it’s more fun to drag them out that way.
Here’s how a Republican candidate for president ought to campaign: just mirror Obama and be as dishonest with what you are actually doing as imaginable. What did Obama do? He’s a pathologically dishonest liar who wanted to present himself as caring for illegal immigrants on the one hand while dealing with the clear and present danger they posed on the other. So Obama claimed he was only attacking CRIMINAL illegal immigrants. When in fact he was doing no such thing: the cockroach was letting them go free to prey on Americans again and again. And we now know that Obama was dishonestly inflating his deportation numbers all along – because he is the DEFINITION of “dishonest.” Here’s that:
In a stunning admission before a House Committee panel on Tuesday, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson admitted that the Obama Administration has been artificially inflating deportation numbers. While the administration has claimed a “record number” of deportations, earning Pres. Obama the nickname “Deporter in Chief”, Johnson admitted that they have been counting border apprehensions that are turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers as deportations. […]
Jessica Vaughan, the Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, has been arguing that actual deportations have declined under Pres. Obama. In her research, she says that if you count all removals, including those done by ICE and Border Patrol, then the Obama administration averages 800,000 removals per year. In comparison, George W. Bush would have removed more than 1.3 million illegal aliens per year, and Bill Clinton would have removed more than 1.5 million per year.
Vaughan also found that if you examine deportations from enforcement efforts by ICE, the number declined by 19 percent between 2011 and 2012 and was on track to decline another 22 percent in 2013. Further, the total number of deportations in 2011 was the lowest level since 1973.
You see, being a pathologically dishonest liar, Obama relied on the worst form of lie – cooked statistics (just like he has done with his health care takeover):
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson acknowledged Tuesday that his department’s deportation numbers are now mostly made up of illegal immigrants caught at the border, not just those from the interior, which means they can’t be compared one-to-one with deportations under President Bush or other prior administrations.
The administration has argued it is tougher on illegal immigration than previous presidents, and immigrant-rights groups have excoriated President Obama, calling him the “deporter-in-chief” for having kicked out nearly 2 million immigrants during his five-year tenure.
But Republican critics have argued those deportation numbers are artificially inflated because more than half of those being deported were new arrivals, caught at the border by the U.S. Border Patrol. Previous administrations primarily counted only those caught in the interior of the U.S. by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“Under the Obama administration, more than half of those removals that were attributed to ICE are actually a result of Border Patrol arrests that wouldn’t have been counted in prior administrations,” said Rep. John Culberson, Texas Republican.
“Correct,” Mr. Johnson confirmed.
That would mean that in a one-to-one comparison with the final years of the Bush administration, deportations of those same people under Mr. Obama had actually fallen, according to immigration analysts who have studied the data.
So if you are the conservative mirror of Obama, with dishonesty being your common ground, here’s what you will do: you will kick down doors and you will drag out every single illegal immigrant in America by their damn hair while their children scream for their mommies and daddies. But you will say you will do (are doing and have done) just the opposite. That way, you can be like Obama and have your political cake and get to eat it too.
Just lie, lie, LIE like the devil Obama. Say whatever you want. Say illegal immigrants flooding into America is “an act of love.” And then ruthlessly target them the way the Obama thug IRS targeted the tea party while announcing how loving you are.
There you go. Intractable political problem solved. And all it takes is the willingness to be the worst liar in the history of the human race (after Obama, who has set the bar of deceit and dishonesty so high no one will ever break his record).
If you have the spirit of Obama, you will promise to be a fundamentally different politician who will transcend politics and elevate America. And then you will crush your enemies, break them, divide them, and drive them off the field. Break America into fractured, divided pieces as long as you end up with at least one more piece than your enemies. And ride on, you son of a gun.
Now, I write that knowing the future because I know the Bible. It won’t happen. It won’t happen because America has degenerated into a place where liars and their lies will win, and Democrats are just better at being liars while their base is better at tolerating lies. Republicans can’t win that game any better than they can win the socialism game by promising to out-socialist the Democrats to buy whatever votes they need to buy.
I think – maybe even dare to hope – that Republicans will have a great 2014 midterm. But by 2016, the consistent liars will win the day (in other words, President Hillary).
You see, there comes a point when a culture is so toxic that there are simply no good options. We’ll have only “choices” like we had in 2012 (where we could either elect a man who believes that Christ Jesus is Lucifer’s brother or we could re-elect a man who actually IS Lucifer’s brother). And given the choice between bad and worse, a wicked people will generally choose “worse.” Until a Hitler comes and then until the end.
God knew and knows the end from the beginning. He knew that America would rise on godly values and He knew that America would fall as the people became sufficiently wicked as to vote for a Democrat Party that would pervert and piss on every virtue the Word of God holds dear. That’s why America is nowhere to be found in Bible prophecy as we literally vote to destroy ourselves in the suicidal and nihilistic act of cutting ourselves off from God’s blessing. God knew that America was going to go down and go down hard.
Ultimately, big government liberals will transition to the ultimate big government liberal: the Bible calls him “the beast” and he will take over the global economy just as every liberal as dreamed about. Like Obama, he will promise the world and make political progress by skillfully demonizing his enemies. But he will lead the world into literal hell on earth.
