I Will Be (Holding My Nose And) Voting For Mitt Romney

April 10, 2012

Well, it’s all but official at this point.  Rick Santorum just bowed out (to my relief) and Newt Gingrich will very likely follow Santorum to the exit.  Ron Paul, of course, will stay in the race and as long as he doesn’t wake up deciding to run as a third-party candidate, that’s fine.

I predicted Mitt Romney would be the nominee back in December – not that that was all that incredibly bold of a prediction.

What happened to the conservative Republican candidate?  Well, let’s put it in terms of a dog fight: the conservative dogs chewed each other up and ate each other’s votes while Romney ploughed ahead as the moderate.  At times, amazingly, Romney was literally untouched in debates as the conservatives bashed each other to shreds trying to position themselves as the “real” conservatives with their rivals being pseudo-conservatives.

What I kept hoping to see was a GOP nomination in which all the candidates took on Obama’s failure of leadership and Obama’s failed policies and let the electorate see who could do a better job taking the fight to Obama.  But such was never to be.  It is for that reason that I am relieved to see a nominee emerge – even if I am anything but happy with that nominee.

Romney could still jazz me up with his VP pick, mind you; that’s what happened when “Maverick” (that’s code for “R.I.N.O.”) John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate.  If Romney were to pick a Marco Rubio or a Nikki Haley, it would do much to improve my mood.

I wanted a real conservative to win the nomination.  I was hoping that we would have a Reagan rise up the way we had the last time an abject Democrat failure (that would be Carter) brought the nation to its knees.  It never happened.  It never happened; in fact, in hindsight I believe I can say that such a candidate never even ran to begin with.

So what do I want now?  I want Obama out of office.  I want “God damn America” to be in the Hall of Shame.

It’s not that I believe in my gut that Mitt Romney will be a great president; it’s that I believe in my gut that this nation cannot survive another term of Obama freed from having to worry about re-election and able to impose his “fundamental transformation” as the nation collapses all around him.  If you think that what’s been happening has been bad (88 million Americans simply dropping out of the workforce altogether; real unemployment at 10.9% if measured by the labor participation rate that Bush handed to Obama), you aint seen nothin’ yet.

In the God damn America that Obama has shaped this nation into, you don’t get a terrible president versus a great candidate; you get a terrible president versus a less-terrible candidate.  A line from a book I’m reading points out this dilemma is hardly anything new:

Hitler and Mussolini were rivals for the political affections of different constituencies in Austria, namely the Austrian Nazis and the clerical-authoritarians gathered around Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss.  For many Austrians, the Dollfuss regime presented them with the familiar dilemma of supporting, or tolerating, a lesser evil to forestall something infinitely worse. — Moral Combat by Michael Burleigh, p. 29

And welcome to the hell of choosing between merely mediocre Mitt or genuinely evil Obama.

Which is why as uninspired as I am by Mitt Romney, I am very inspired indeed to replace Barack Obama.

Before Obama implodes America with mindboggling debt that is only going to soar even more out of control with ObamaCare and other incredibly foolish policies.

One more thing: what will be Obama’s strategy against Romney?  To demonize him as no candidate has ever been demonized before.

Obama ran on “hope and change”; it was all a lie from hell – the kind of lie of glorious false promises and empty rhetoric that the world will soon see again when Antichrist comes:

Obama has been going from fundraiser to fundraiser in unprecedented fashion to raise a billion dollars that will allow him to demagogue and demonize like this earth has never seen.  Obama knows that he cannot possibly win on his failed record; he knows he has to pour fiery hate on top of the gasoline of pitting races against one another, pitting men against women, and pitting income level against income level ala Karl Marx. 

Here is a tried and true secret to how to run against a R.I.N.O. (that’s “Republican-In-Name-Only”) Republican: deceitfully frame him as an ultra-conservative.  Obama did this to John McCain and he’s already starting to do it to Mitt Romney, and here’s why it works: actual conservatives already know full damn well that it’s a hilarious lie that Mitt Romney is a “dangerous right-wing conservative” and are de-energized to support him, but the far more moderate and far more ignorant masses don’t know that – and Obama can use his giant campaign warchest that dwarfs anything history has ever seen because Obama has sold out America to special interests to turn the Republican nominee into a “right-wing bogeyman.”

A lot of Republicans are WISHING Mitt Romney were anything remotely CLOSE to a right-wing bogeyman.  But the people who still haven’t even yet bothered to tune into the election aren’t going to know anything.  And between an ocean of Obama attack ads and the mainstream media they’ll “know” exactly what they’re told to know.

Obama is going to try to frame Mitt Romney as a candidate who only cares about the rich.  But LOOK AT OBAMA’S TOP DONORS TO SEE THE TRUTH: Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan!?!?!?

How DARE this whore who has grabbed more money from more rich people than ANY political leader in the history of the human race play class warfare.  But the two things that Obama knows are that the mainstream media are his propaganda wing and that the American people are ignorant and willing to believe lies.

So you’re not inspired by Mitt Romney?  Please join the club.  But you’d better vote for him or you’re going to get hell on earth.

Bill Maher Keeps Documenting The Fact That To Be A Liberal Is To Be A Hypocrite And An Abject Dumbass

March 14, 2012

Bill Maher had something to say about Rick Santorum’s wife and children:

BILL MAHER: But I bring up the old tale of the poisoned apple — no, not “Snow White,” that’s a fairy tale – because the Adam and Eve story is taken literally by half the country and it’s no coincidence that the type of tree which god forbade Adam and Eve eating from was the Tree of Knowledge. Rick Santorum homeschools his children because he does not want them eating that f–king apple. He wants them locked up in the Christian madrassa that is the family living room not out in public where they could be infected by the virus of reason. If you’re a kid and the only adults you’ve ever met are mom and dad, and then they’re also the smartest adults you’ve met, why not keep it that way? Why mess up paradise with a lot knowledge? After all, a mind is a terrible thing to open.

You can watch him make an ass out of himself and all of liberalism in general right here.

For the record, you can click on that link above or this one to read a little bit about how superior homeschooled kids truly are.

You can learn that home-schooled kids score highest on both the SAT and the ACT tests.

You can read about another “Christian madrassa” kid who was not allowed to eat the “f-ing apple of reason.”  Who scored 1,570 out of a possible 1,600 on his SAT with a perfect 800 in math.

Or you can read this from today:

Virginia girl, 6, youngest ever in U.S. spelling bee
Reuters – 4 hrs ago (3/13/12).

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A 6-year-old U.S. girl will become the youngest contestant ever in the Scripps National Spelling Bee after winning a regional competition in Virginia.

Lori Anne Madison, of Woodbridge, Virginia, won the Prince William County spelling contest earlier this month, beating out 21 top elementary and middle school competitors. Her winning word: “vaquero,” a word of Spanish origin meaning cowboy.

“My parents quiz me. I read lists and I have a really good memory,” Madison, who is home-schooled, told Fox’s WTTG-TV, a Washington-area station.

Madison was believed to be the youngest competitor ever, the Cincinnati-based National Spelling Bee said on Tuesday. Based on incomplete records, the previous youngest contestant was 8, it said.

The spelling contest has been held annually since 1925. This year’s event will be May 29 to June 1 in Washington, with 277 participants from the United States, U.S. territories and other countries.

Madison will be sponsored by the News & Messenger newspaper of Manassas, Virginia.

In other words, evil doesn’t just make you liberal, it makes you a truly stupid human being who is catastrophically unable to understand basic reality.

And, yes, Bill Maher also provides a very graphic documentation of the fact that liberals are abject hypocrites:

This guy who mocks Rick and Karen Santorum as parents and mocks their children and mocks their religion – stupidly and falsely, I might add – also has called Sarah Palin a “cunt” and a “dumb twat” to document that he is an offensive misogynist bigot who makes Rush Limbaugh look like a saint in the pantheon of feminism by comparison.

For the record, I bet that dumb twat cunt Sarah Palin is smart enough to know that home-schooled kids run academic circles around their government-schooled competition.

But of course that won’t stop Barack Obama – in spite of all of his hoity-toity self-righteous sanctimony from pocketing Bill Maher’s $1 million donation.

You see, Obama said “People’s families are off limits.”  But what he clearly meant to say (you know how the media always reinterprets what Obama said so it won’t sound so damn stupid?) is that LIBERAL people’s families are off limits.  Sarah Palin’s and Rick Santorum’s families are good for huntin’ and even better for eatin’.

Obama thanks you for your gift, Maher.  And all liberals should also thank you for showing the world what liberals and liberalism is really like.

Of course, liberals could prove that wrong by refusing to watch his program so that Bill Maher ends up living in a box on the sidewalk like he ought to.  But that aint going to happen: because liberals truly are abject hypcrite dumbasses.

Only a liberal would believe that a reasonably intelligent parent wouldn’t make a better teacher for his or her own child than a government bureaucrat who is warehousing forty of somebody else’s kids.

A Few Thoughts On Iowa And The Current GOP Field

January 4, 2012

Well, the final tally was counted last night, and Mitt Romney edged out Rick Santorum by eight votes.

That’s got to drive you nuts; they say this stretch between Iowa and Super Tuesday is the hardest and most stressful and arduous period in all of politics; and Rick Santorum enters this stretch realizing if he’d just shaken as few as five more hands…

Romney kind of won (a meager technical victory) and Santorum kind of won (by winning the surge of the last few days of the race).  Both candidates will legitimately be able to claim victory.  The question is who will most effectively be able to take advantage of the victory they won in Iowa in the coming days.

At this point in the GOP contest, the race boils down to one of “the establishment candidate deemed most likely to win” versus the candidate we’d vote for if we were going to actually vote our values.  I don’t say it that way to say we should all necessarily be voting for Rick Santorum; I myself would rather have a President Mitt Romney than a defeated GOP contestant Rick Santorum.  We all have to do that calculus: which Republican candidate has the best chance of actually winning?  

I believe along with Charles Krauthammer that we should elect the most conservative candidate who can win.  And I don’t profess to know which candidate that is.

It could be Mitt Romney; it could be that Rick Santorum simply won’t be able to get those millions that will be able to compete with Obama’s billion (and isn’t it interesting that the same president who has so self-righteously eschewed “the system” would be the one who has amassed more money from that system than any other candidate in the history of the entire human race?).

If we’re talking big money, the guy is probably Romney; he has been the only money-raiser who has demonstrated an ability to compete with the Money-Raiser-in-Chief who sits on the White House throne.

But there’s a rub:

We need a candidate who can unite the party, yes, but we also need a candidate who can successfully unite both the big donors who fund the party and the conservatives who would serve as the willing foot soldiers to help carry the message.  You need money to win or you can’t win; and you just as much need inspired volunteers to win or you can’t win.

Romney can raise the bucks – probably better than any Republican in the field.  But can Romney inspire the troops?

He sure aint inspired me yet.  The best thing I can say about Mitt Romney is that at least he would at least be better than Obama (and frankly you’d have to go with guys with names like Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Kim Jong Il to point out people who would be worse than Obama).

But can Santorum inspire the conservative troops?  Think about it: Santorum represents the fifth candidate in a chain of candidates whom conservatives have tried to back as the “anti-Romney” choice.  He’s the fifth choice at this point.  That doesn’t mean he can’t truly rise to the occasion; it does mean he’s got an awfully long way to go to get there.

Romney has got the money; Santorum was able to get people to work like dogs for him in the final few days of the Iowa Caucus.  We need a Republican who can do both and do it on a national level.

I said a couple of weeks ago that I feared that neither Santorum or any other conservative would be able to rise that far in the time remaining.  And so allow me to talk about Romney for a few moments.

This is what happened to the Republican Party last year: we needed a visionary leader, and we got John McCain – a RINO who couldn’t be counted upon to stand up and deliver the conservative message and the conservative worldview.  My fear all along is that Mitt Romney is a John McCain with better hair and teeth.

What did the left do to that RINO McCain who had reached out so many times to Democrats?  Basically, this:

They turned him into some kind of arch-über-conservative that would frighten away independents.  And of course actual conservatives knew that the brand wasn’t true.  So damned near everybody was turned off to McCain.

McCain talked about remaining in Iraq the way we’ve remained in Germany and South Korea; not as “bloodthirsty warmongers,” but as guarantors to safeguard and protect what we had won with too much blood and treasure.  That was a message that Obama and his minions proceeded to twist and distort so they could deceive the American people into voting for a fraud who would fail.

And they’ll try to do the same thing to Mitt Romney, mark my words.  It doesn’t matter if he’s not a real conservative and every conservative knows he’s not a real conservative; liberals don’t give a flying damn about what’s real; they are all about rhetoric, and they’ll try to use their bogus, vicious rhetoric again.  It’s all they’ve got; it’s all they are.

I’ll vote for Mitt Romney and I’ll vote for Rick Santorum.  But I’ll sure be wishing for Ronald Reagan.

Reagan was a conservative whom the Democrat and Republican establishments both agreed couldn’t win when he captured the Republican nomination.  In fact, when he defeated the establishment candidate George H.W. Bush, the Jimmy Carter campaign staff literally opened champagne bottles and toasted one another.

Reagan shove that bottle right up… well, you know where.  He defeated Carter in the biggest landslide against an incumbant anyone alive had ever seen.

But Obama has given us God damn America, and in God damn America you don’t get a Reagan because you don’t deserve a Reagan.

In God damn America, Americams sow the wind and reaps the whirlwind (Hosea 8:7).

God damn America is a land that believes lies because they would rather believe lies than face reality.

Obama has buried America in $6 TRILLION in debt in only three years; after demonizing Bush for handing America $4 trillion in eight years.  God damn America shrugs off that truth just as it shrugs off every other truth.

We’re down to three Republican candidates, and all three of them are deeply flawed even while all three of them remain far superior to the Liar-in-Chief we’ve got now.

I believe this nation – and this world – is in the last days.  I believe we’ve kicked the can down the road until there’s no more road to kick the can down any more, and we are about to pay for it with a Great Depression that will make the last one look like a walk on the beach.

A vote for the Republican challenger would be a vote against that fate; but if we are God damn America, we are too much a nation of fools to care about disaster, aren’t we?

November 2012 is going to come fast.  And America doesn’t seem to handle deadlines very well.  We’ve got a huge choice to make; and my fear is that the American people will vote to kick the can down the road just as they have demanded their representatives do over and over again.  Until certain doom overtakes us.

One thing is certain: we don’t have enough road for Obama.  A vote for Obama is a vote for fiscal implosion and national suicide.  And that is precisely the choice that God damn America would make.

Here’s the essence of the 2012 race in all probability: the Republican Party will be uninspired because they will have an uninpsiring leader; the Democrat Party will be uninspired because their leader is a fraud and a failure.  Will the uninspired Republicans be more determined to get Obama out, or will the uninspired Democrats be more determined to keep their failure in?

I hope I haven’t come across as overly optimistic about our choices as Americans.

There’s only one candidate for your heart that will save you from the hell that is coming: and He isn’t a Republican.  He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords.

I’ll vote in the election; but I’ve put my trust in Jesus.

Remark Of The Night In South Carolina GOP Debate: Barack Obama IS A Socialist

May 6, 2011

At some point during the GOP debate in South Carolina, Rick Santorum made the comment that Barack Obama was a socialist.

In his after-debate panel that appeared on the Sean Hannity Program, Frank Luntz listened to a woman who pointed that out and said she believed it was true, and then asked the panelists (after saying, “I’m going to get in trouble for this”), “WHY is Barack Obama a socialist?”

One old man immediately said, “Ask Joe the Plumber.”

I can only tell you what I would have said, given the pithy answer that was demanded (although that old man’s was arguably even better):

“Karl Marx expressed the essence of his Marxist communism as, ‘From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.’  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the mainstream media demanded that Barack Obama refute that statement, and explained how his policies were (somehow) the opposite of that?”

And so, yes, that old man on Frank Luntz’s panel nailed it: when Barack Obama said

“My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody. I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

– There is no question whatsoever that Obama was patiently explaining that, yes, he is without any question whatsoever, a socialist.

For those who would try to argue that statement by Karl Marz is NOT the essence of Marxism, allow me to reproduce Karl Marx’s statement in context:

In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!

Which is to say that it is not merely the essence of communism, but in fact it was the destination that Karl Marx was striving to attain to in his “higher phase of communist society.”

So, given that liberal Democrats affirm this same exact ideal – which was the ultimate ideal of Marx’s “higher phase of communist society” – just how precisely are they not Marxists?

And yet whenever a conservative makes this accurate accusation, all we ever get from the media is a poo-pooing; as though pointing out and declaring the truth is an extreme thing to do.
