Should the GOP & Barry Work Together??

Thought you would enjoy my son's history essay on this topic...

Warms my heart to see that 17 years of listening to me has paid off!!



Presidential Leadership Symposium – Essay

AP-Government

Can the White House and the President “work together” in the next year to overcome the divided government that has gripped the country for most of Barack Obama’s Presidency?

Since the landslide victories the GOP enjoyed in last year’s mid-term elections, the Republican-led House of Representatives and the now Republican-controlled Senate enjoy their largest majorities in Congress since the 1920’s. 

But instead of seeing this as a repudiation of his liberal tax and spend policies, Barack Obama and his partners in congress (Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi)  have seemed to ignore the people’s voice, double-down and further embrace their far-left policies that the American people loudly rejected at the ballot boxes last fall..

The Republican-led congress and the White House have significantly different viewpoints on how to address the issues facing the United States in 2015.  In 2008, Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally change the country” when he campaigned to be the 44th President of these United States.

Well, 6 years in and he has taken the constitution and used it to play pin the tail on the donkey as he has randomly decided which laws he would like to enforce and which laws he deems “inconvenient” when trying to implement his fundamental change and social justice he and his liberal partners desire.

What are the Republicans suppose to do when the President has rejected their suggestions, threatened vetoes and basically ignore any dissenting viewpoint that has been proposed?  Are they supposed to ignore the people’s voice and abandon their principles just for the cause of “accomplishing” something?  I think not.

In the 1700’s, our founding fathers created a masterfully brilliant document called the “Constitution of the United States”.  And the cornerstone of that document was the premise of “Checks and Balances” whereas the Federal Government would be divided into 3 separate, yet equal branches of government to assure not one of the branches gains too much power over the others.

The overriding goal was to assure the federal government never become too powerful.  That it’s power be “Limited” and the majority of the power to govern remain with the people and the states. 
In recent history, federal power (especially the Executive branch) has grown exponentially while state and local governments have been significantly diminished as the federal nanny state has grown to the point where it has spent way beyond it’s means, forces citizens to purchase “insurance”, unilaterally grants amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants among other unconstitutional and far-reaching power-hungry actions.

In summary, “divided government” is not a bad thing.  In fact, it is one of the guiding principles that the country was founded on and made us the greatest country ever created on this earth. 

The premise of “working together” to pass more laws and impose more taxes and regulations on an already beaten down American public from a power-hungry federal government is a good thing is just plain wrong and goes against everything we were founded on.

Our founding fathers, our constitution and the American people have said that enough is enough.  They don’t want the government to “work together” as this topic question imposes and the media would have you believe is what we want.

Perhaps the American people got it right last fall when their votes loudly suggested they should not work together but be divided so they “stop accomplishing” anything because by doing nothing could be the best outcome we could hope for.  I am sure our founding fathers would agree.

The Delusional Tray-Von Mob is Maddening!!

To my Conservative Friends:

I have watched this trial from the very beginning to the bitter end and then some including the absolute brain-dead, no-information ass-clown talking heads who have no clue as to the details of the trial.

Either they have no brain or they are so deluded with the race-hustling, Occupy Schmuck Street crowd that they can't comprehend basic, simple facts a freaking 3rd grader can understand.

My favorite comment I am hearing from every left-wing Dumb-O-Crat and Holly-Weird shit-head is "Zimmerman killed an unarmed teenager that did nothing wrong"...


"Angel" Tray-Von
ARE YOU FRIGGIN' KIDDING ME??? 

Hey Loons - Ya wanna know what Tray-Von was doing that got him killed???  It's called FELONY ASSAULT!!

He savagely and repeatedly beat George Zimmerman's head on the sidewalk after cold-cocking him and breaking his nose.  However, the low-information idiots actually want everyone to believe that this was no big deal and did not justify George from defending himself. 

And from the evidence we all know that was withheld from the jury about Tray-Von's past, we know he was no model citizen.  The pot smoking, 3 school suspensions, the thefts...  What good kid does all this stuff.  Not my kids, not my kids' friends.  Only thugs...  So, it really is no secret as to why this "kid" attacked Zimmerman instead of continuing to his father's condo where he would have been safe...

But the left wants no part of the facts of the case or the facts of who this "kid" really was.  Did they hear the wicked screams??  Did they listen to the mountain of evidence that is was Zimmerman's voice screaming for help?  Did they see the injuries??  Did they listen to the eye witnesses??? 


Race Hustler-in-Chief Stokes the Race Flames
I think they did, but they are either so stupid they can't understand it or they simply don't care about facts and reason because it DOES NOT FIT THEIR NARRATIVE AND RACE-BAITING AGENDA!!

Quite frankly I am so sick of the dim-bulbs hijacking this simple, straight-forward self-defense case as the "Race case of the century".  If the loony left race-hustlers don't have a bogeyman to rail against they become irrelevant.  So they grabbed this case and are riding it for all they are worth...

Now they are even pushing for the ultimate race hustler Eric Holder and the DOJ to file a federal civil rights case against Zimmerman!  The insanity has to stop!!

However, it is just proving the left to be the soul-less pathetic excuses for humans that they are...

This great union may be lost for good if we allow them to continually get away with this crap???

Just my thoughts...

Has anyone seen this video???

Hello my Conservative Friends:

Simply post today - No BS - I am sure most of you have seen it, but I want to make sure because as of yesterday, I have not seen it...  And EVERYONE should absolutely make sure they see this...

If you have not seen this movie, watch it.  Watch the whole thing and then watch it again.

Then have your family watch it.  Then do it all over again until you and everyone you know has seen and understands it...

If this does not make you aware of what is going on today in this country, nothing will!!!

Pass this along for the sake of what is left of our country...

GOP Mike's Election Post Mortem - Assessing the Carnage...

To my Conservative Friends:

I sat in front of my computer last night and started this post.  I clicked on "New Post", started, stopped and started again... 

I froze after just 3 words and stared into a blank wall saying to myself, "What could I possibly write?"  What do I say to everyone who, like me, had such great hopes for this election.  What do I say to the people who felt, like me, that we needed Mitt Romney to win because we sincerely felt our country, our businesses, our families so desperately needed him to win.

I realized that this article is going to be the hardest article I have ever written just minutes after 57 million people that voted for a chance at a real recovery were just kicked right in the gut.  We have been struggling for so long watching this President demonize us, divide us and push his socialist policies that we knew were like a cancer to a healthy economy...

I was stunned.  I was sad, and most importantly I was scared of what this means to our country and leaves us lovers of freedom and liberty asking "Where do we go from here??"  There was never any thought of a contingency plan.  There was no thinking that this President, that has so utterly failed in every objective metric, could possibly be reelected...

I was wrong.  I was too optimistic.  I gave the country too much credit for understanding what was at stake.  I falsely believed that a majority of this country understands that freedom was on the ballot yesterday.  Freedom is what was offered by Mitt Romney.  Obama and his ilk understood more than all of us that in the choice between freedom and stuff, a majority of the sheeple will choose the stuff every time. 

As Rush said today, it is hard to run against Santa Claus.  Especially if you have to be Santa Claus.  Ya see the democrats appeal to the lowest common denominator of the masses.  They know its easier to just be Santa Claus and get votes than to make the hard argument that because Santa is broke, we may have to scale back Christmas a bit this year!  It will be tough in the short-term, but it is the best thing for us in the long-term.

Us conservatives feel that as long as we explain the economic realities to the people that they will understand that we can not mortgage our children's future.  We can not continue with trillion+ deficits and continue to exist.  We can not put our heads in the sand and ignore the reality that if we don't fix this now, it will be fixed for us.  And that will be very ugly!! 

We make that argument and feel that most people will get it and vote for freedom.  They then go behind the curtain and pull the shiny lever labeled "FREE STUFF FROM SANTA OBAMA"..

Obama and his crew know that by dividing and demonizing the successful people in our country it creates a resentment among the low and middle income people so they feel "Yeah - Screw those rich assholes - MAKE 'EM PAY!!!"

Us conservatives know that is a bankrupt argument.  That if you tax the pants out of every high earner, you can run the government for 2 months at best.  We also know that these people are the job creators, the investors, the engine of a growing economy and we NEED them to be successful...  Us conservatives know that we should never demonize success, but rather celebrate it and emulate it so you can be a success too. 

We make that argument day after day and feel most people get it and will vote celebrate rather than demonize.  They then go behind that curtain and are so filled with jealousy and resentment, they grab that demonization lever and pull down with a sick vengeance and feeling of gratification that they got their pound of flesh.

So that is why we are sitting here today looking at another 4 years of a President Obama.  That is why we are sad today that will will not see how a President Romney will go about healing this economy and getting us a real recovery.  I believe Mitt Romney had a chance to be a great President.  He is a good and decent man with many skills he would have brought to bear to lead this country from the depths of despair we find ourselves today.

Instead we will get more division, more spending and more deficits.  The stock market reacted by tanking 330 today.  How will employers react to Obamacare being fully implemented now??  How will the real estate market react to an economy with high unemployment and a falling dollar.  I can't imagine this will be easy times ahead for our country.

I can only hope that we can make it through so we have the opportunity to restore our freedom, regain our liberties and make the argument that our case is the best subscription for our country.  We must make that case

We must not cower to those who say we have to compromise our principles and sell out to those who go along to get along.  Our case is the case made by our founders.  Our case is the one outlined in the constitution.  Our case will prevail.  It must prevail if we are to remain the greatest country ever created.  In time, it will.

Just my thoughts...
