According to Webster: truth, Conformity to fact or actuality.
According to Webster: de·cep·tion, 1. The use of deceit. 2. A ruse; a trick.
We, “We the People,” of the United States of America are once again, and in my opinion, “extremely fortunate” to be entering the headwaters of another National election. In 2008 the majority of the voting population in America voted for “Hope and Change.” Or as I personally prefer to refer to it as “Hype and Commute.”
According to Webster: hope, To wish for something with expectation of its fulfillment.
After suffering eight long years of George W. Bush’s carpetbagging administration, I fully understood the American public’s frustration, what the hell, ..I live here to. What I do not understand, and will never understand, is an educated population that gathers on schedule and chooses sundown, i.e., the “status quo” over a sunrise, i.e., a “bright future.”
According to Webster: change, To cause to be different:
Not that Barack Obama did not fulfill his promise of change, however, at least in my opinion, I don’t believe that the individuals who voted for Barack Obama expected that the change would be from “Bad to Worse.”
According to Webster: hype, Exaggerated or extravagant claims made especially in advertising or promotional material.
With the cold hard facts of political combat historically established as a negative endeavor, if the, “as advertised,” educated American public ever truly wants to experience a change that will effect their lives in a positive manner. Then the voting public in America is going to have to step back from the professional (self interested) politicians who make the exaggerated, and extravagant promises and claims to acquire America’s votes. Although it sometimes seems as though “it” is resting under a layer of dust on the uppermost shelf, at the back of your hall closet with the door closed, “Common Sense” is not lost in America, ..and for the few who may choose not to believe me, go find a needle, and stick it in your eye.
In yesterday’s offering, I published a quote by; (George Santayana,) “Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it.”
According to Webster: com·mute, To make substitution or exchange. b. To serve as a substitute.
Barack Obama, has, “once again in my opinion,” been serving as a substitute for “George W. Bush,” for nearly 3 years now, because he hasn’t done squat to provide for America and the “rank-and-file” taxpaying citizens of America who pay his salary. Professional politicians have been using the same playbook for 235 years. Foreign policy over domestic policy, blatant “in your face” concern for employment and infrastructure in foreign nations, blatant “in your face” concern and involvement in protecting the borders of foreign nations, while blatantly ignoring our borders here at home.
According to Webster: pro·fes·sion·al, Engaging in a given activity as a source of livelihood or as a career.
Abraham Lincoln said it precise and clear at Gettysburg on 19, November, 1863: “..and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
..SHALL NOT PERISH FROM THE EARTH.
Meaning that Barack Obama or no other self aggrandized professional politician in America has the authority or will ever have the authority to, (as he expounded during his 2008 campaign) “Fundamentally change the way that America does Business.”
Although I will grant you without argument that he and his administration have done their level best to manipulate the Constitution, he has not and will not succeed.
According to Webster: ma·nip·u·la·tion, Shrewd or devious management, especially for one’s own advantage.
In a recent political composition that I composed to share with as many individuals as possible in cyberspace I pilfered an appropriate quote from “Bud Gregg”
“A taxpayer voting for Barack Obama, is
like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.”
Being a focused fiscal conservative, I both appreciate and admire Bud’s heart and agenda.
According to Webster: a·gen·da, A list or program of things to be done or considered.
Speaking of agendas, I make no secret of the fact that I am extremely unhappy with Barack Obama in the White House. I am also extremely unhappy with the 70 to 75 percent of America’s population who deny themselves a right that countless numbers of past Americans have fought and died to provide. I am also extremely unhappy with Americans who label themselves with a prefix…
According to Webster: pre·fix, To put or attach before or in front of.
*** REALITY ***
AN AMERICAN IS AN AMERICAN, OR THEY ARE NOT !
..during a recent interview of Christine O’Donnell conducted by Bill O’Reilly, of the Fox news channel’s “O’Reilly factor,” Ms. O’Donnell expounded as to her belief that she was unsuccessful in her bid for Delaware’s Senate seat against Democrat Christopher Coons because of ill advice and an ill composed political ad. Stating to Bill O’Reilly that she now believes that her chance of being elected would have been much greater, had her campaign not aired the ad. To which I say, “Hogwash.” Politicians win elections in America for two reasons. First, Politicians win elections in America because they are politicians and, 2. Because the American public, as intellectually capable as they may be when researching the content of a movie that they will spend $7.50 to $9.00 on, on Saturday night. When it comes to researching an individual or a political ideology that will hold sway over their economic futures for two to six years, the vast majority of these same intellectually capable Americans rely on the bought and paid for rhetoric of professional liars.
I don’t live in Delaware, but if I did, I would have voted for Christine O’Donnell in a heartbeat because she was not a professional politician. Accordingly, since the majority of the folks who do live in Delaware voted for Christopher Coons, proving, “at least in my opinion,” that they either don’t understand progressive ideology, or that they simply don’t care. Either way, I can say here and now, and without reservation that I am extremely glad that I do not live in Delaware.
Then again, I suppose to be as fair as possible I should consider the possibility that the majority of the folks in Delaware do not own dictionaries? Consequently, for the benefit of those who may fall into that category, I am delighted to offer;
According to Webster: lib·er·al, Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas.
According to Webster: pro·gres·sive, Proceeding in steps; continuing steadily by increments.
In easier more understandable layman’s terms, political “Liberal Progressive” idealists do not believe in being limited by the Constitution of the United States, or in even simpler terms, ..by the “Law.”
According to Webster: con·ser·va·tive, 1. Favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change.
In easier more understandable layman’s terms, political conservatives, believe in the Constitution of the United States and upholding the law. A conservative individual understands that illegal means illegal, even when prefacing the pro-noun “alien.” To a dedicated conservative, there is no document in the United States with more tradition and value than our Constitution.
According to Webster: tra·di·tion, 1. The passing down of elements of a culture from generation to generation.
According to Webster: val·ues, 1. principles, standards, or qualities considered worthwhile or desirable.
Barack Obama is as liberal and progressive as a liberal progressive idealist gets…
According to Webster: i·de·al·ist, 1. One whose conduct is influenced by ideals that often conflict with practical considerations. 2. One who is unrealistic and impractical; a visionary.
Barack Obama’s hope and change has brought America to the brink of a second “Great Depression.”America needs to turn the page and learn the definition of pragmatic.
According to Webster: prag·mat·ic, 1. Dealing or concerned with facts or actual occurrences; practical. 2. Philosophy. Of or relating to pragmatism. 3. Relating to or being the study of cause and effect in historical or political events with emphasis on the practical lessons to be learned from them.
Professional politician = not good forAmerica.
Rank-and-file, nonpolitician = good forAmerica.
Barack Obama = progressive idealist.
Sarah Palin = conservative pragmatist.
Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
