REPUBLICANS SET THE STAGE; DEMOCRATS EMBARK ON THEIR MISSION TO SAVE THE ECONOMY AND THE AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC

Friday, August 31st, 2012

The Republican Convention is over and now it is time for the Democratic Party to convene and ‘do the right thing’.

This is a kind of Presidential campaign that I have never witnessed before;  a Republican Convention and Republican candidates openly lying, lying, and lying some more. The lying TV ads were one thing, but repeatedly in the Republican Convention, the players eagerly and deliberately lied and lied and lied.

True, I’m a Democrat, but yet I have never seen or heard our Republican opponents deliberately lying as they are now. Someone please tell me just what these people are up to? Do they think that everyone watching the convention is totally ignorant? The Republican Convention looked more like dishonest Faux News commentary than a responsible Political Party Convention.

The Republicans appear so confident that you begin to wonder if they are confident that voters will not decide the Presidency by democratic election so they do not need to make a good impression on voters; personally, I do believe that is the case.

Whether Republicans believe Citizens United will decide the ‘election’ in their favor or voter suppression will decide, I do not know. But no intelligent politician, no matter how corrupt could tell lies like the Republicans in this convention and expect to win in a truly democratic election. Of course, I speak from the experience of the US Supreme Court Presidential ‘selection’ of 2000 and the Diebold voting machine ‘election’ of 2004.

I trust that Democrats will not waste their Democratic convention on simply attempting to correct Republican Lies.  Instead of wasting a convention on correcting Republican lies and be put on the defensive, it is essential that Democrats stay on the offense with great intensity.

I disagree with Centrist Democrats who think Democrats have to appease extreme rightists for the ‘independent vote’ and I agree with Michael Moore and Dr. Howard Dean that MOST AMERICANS (THE MAJORITY) ARE WORKING MIDDLE CLASS AND COMPASSIONATE AND  SOCIAL LIBERAL ORIENTED. That is why our democracy has worked and the 1/3 of the voters who do not vote or have voted for Nader on election day, are liberal and simply feel they do not have a strong liberal candidate as an alternative to the extremist Republicans.

Dictionary definition of liberal: “Not narrow in opinion or judgments; tolerant.”

Dictionary definition of conservative: “Disposed to maintain existing views, conditions, or institutions; moderate, cautious.”

Today’s Republicans are definitely NOT truly conservative; they are radical plutocratic oligarchs.

A  social liberal like Obama can actually be a monetary conservative like Obama is (and most of true liberals are). Liberals know that nothing is free and for the people’s government to provide for the Peoples essential needs that they cannot provide for themselves, they have to budget carefully and not be subsidizing business and industry that can care for itself.

This is the battleground and this is what the Democrats must do to convince voters that President Obama is their only choice for an economy to maintain a decent standard of living for working middle class Americans and for a strong and democratic American Republic; the wealthy likes of Gov. Romney and Republicans have no problem caring for themselves and really do not need legislation like the Bush Tax Cut for the Wealthy which only takes from the people.

This is what Democrats need to do, that and trying to stop the Republicans from stealing or buying the election.

“YOU DID NOT BUILD THAT ALONE” AND THAT IS THE TRUTH; PRESIDENT OBAMA IS RIGHT AND REPUBLICANS ARE DEAD WRONG!

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Much has been said about President Obama’s wise words, “You did not build that alone!”

Now I will tell you the truth, President Obama actually stole that line from me and John Donne and President Obama is right!

The Republican Party has taken up President Obama’s words, “You didn’t build that alone” and adopted the reverse  as a mantra; Republicans appear to maintain that any business in America has succeeded without obtaining a license from the government of the People  to do business; without a monetary system based on the credit of our “American government of the People to transact business; without clientele consisting of the People; without any employees of the people; and totally without the cooperation of the People of our Society that provides all businesses with police and fire protection for their business and their clientele.

Successful business is built on cooperation and not fierce competition to the death and pitting one man against the masses.

Now, if you disagree with our President Barrack Obama and believe that you actually did  it alone, you are saying that the society of the American democratic Republic has no American Values; because doing business and giving individual Americans the freedom to profit from their own initiative and creativity (basic capitalism) is a basic American value of our society.

If you believe that you succeed totally alone, then you and your business are doomed to die on Walden Pond.   “No man is an island!”

ADDENDUM:  PRESIDENT OBAMA’S  ACTUAL WORDS

“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

“The point is, when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.”

 

 

2012 REPUBLICAN CONVENTION KEYNOTE SPEAKER, CHRISTIE, FORGETS MITT AND TWIT

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Chris Christie delivered the keynote address to the 2012 Republican Party Convention that nominated Mitt Romney to be President of the United States and Rep. Ryan to be Vice President.

Unfortunately, the Republican Keynote Speaker, Christie,  forgot the name of the Republican candidate for President and hardly mentioned him.

But,  Chris Christie talks only of, about, for, and to the benefit of Chris Christie; not only did he forget Mitt’s name, he totally forgot the name of the last Republican President, his exalted hero, George W. Bush.  This Republican Party is ALL ABOUT President George W. Bush whose administration Republicans, Christie, and Mitt and Twit  want to return to.

Oh yes, and Christie forgot the name of Osama bin (what’s his name) , Laden, that 2008 Republican Presidential candidate John McCain said that America could not go into its ally, Pakistan, to apprehend.

It must be difficult for Republicans to get excited about the Party of a President that no Republican remembers the name of that Party’s previous President’s.  But Republicans do get excited and Christie received thunderous applause from the John Birch Society Republicans present.

Hey Republicans, think back, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, torture, weapons of mass destruction, tax cuts for the wealthy, 9/11, spying on Americans without a warrant, unemployment, national debt, and American military bases in Muslim Holy Land; that is your legacy!

AMERICA’S FIRST RELIGIOUS ELECTION; DAMN THE HERETICS AND FULL STEAM AHEAD

Monday, August 27th, 2012

“I’m a Catholic deer hunter,” Romney’s running mate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) proudly proclaimed in Michigan earlier this week. That said it all.  See Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/27/rnc-2012-_n_1831944.html

Mitt and Twit are out to win the Midwest Catholic and Mormon vote!

It is obvious that Mitt and Twit do not believe in the separation of church and State since they are going after the Catholic voters and the Catholic Bishops are going after President Obama and women’s choice. There seems to be a mutual feeling between Mitt and Twit and the Catholic Bishops that the American democratic Republic should replace American Law with Catholic Cannon Law and replace American democracy with a Republican Catholic/Mormon theocracy.

Basically, Mitt and Twit believe that Americans who are Protestants, Unitarians, Buddhists, agnostics, atheists, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, and whatever, can eat dirt; it is a religious war and a total violation of the First Amendment separation of church and State.

The theocratic Vatican Princes of the Catholic Church and Mormon Bishops would replace secular government; a joint effort of Holy Rollers, with the approval of the democracy hating John Birch Society would rule America.

Whatever happened to the Grand Old Party? What happened to democracy and religious rights for all?

I saw the first Catholic President, John Kennedy, say over and over, “My religion will not determine the way I govern the People.” Mitt and Twit are saying, “We will implement Holy Cannon Law for all.”  What a difference.

Personally, I think Mitt and Twit are crazy as hell, but I remember the 2000 election when the 5 political Justices of the US Supreme Court threw out the votes and anointed a crazy President.  What is happening today is scary!

THE ISSUES IN THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

U.S. Constitution, First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech . . . or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”; Mitt Romney: “We will eliminate Labor Unions”!

U.S. Supreme Court: “Corporations are people and have freedom of Speech (Citizens United)”.

God bless America? God, where the hell are You?

THE JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY REPUBLICAN PARTY COUP, 2012; VET THE CANDIDATES!

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

All candidates including Mitt and Twit should be vetted for John Birch Society ideology, believing that ‘America is not and was never intended to be a democracy’.  See John Birch Society Blue Book, 1961, pp. 124, 136.

Simple, all a reporter has to do is ask: “Do you believe America is a democracy and the founders intended it to be a democracy?  Why are all candidates not ask this question?  Shame on the media; knowing whether or not a candidate believes in democracy is of utmost importance to voters in America!

John Birch Society membership is secret; the JBS works only through covert front groups like the Tea Party, ALEC, and other non-profit, tax exempt (sometimes religious) Foundations and Think Tanks.  They are dedicated to eliminating democracy from America, calling democracy a “fraud”, “mob rule”, and “the worse possible form of government”.

John Birch Society supporters are exceedingly wealthy multi-billionaires.  They intend to buy America and buy the elections

The Republican Party today totally violates democracy in their GOP Party Platform, denying women, homosexuals, and ethnic minorities equality under the law; they refute the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade, ruling for Women’s Choice.   Republicans currently have enacted laws to deny ‘selected citizens’ the right to vote; Republicans have passed laws that deny workers the right to form and belong to labor unions.  The John Birch Society has take over the Republican Party and the Republican Party now is eliminating democracy from America.

All candidates for all offices should be vetted for John Birch Society ideology, the elimination of democracy from the American democratic Republic. 

Corporate America and corporate owned and controlled media support John Birch Society ideology and the elimination of democracy from America; the media does not mention the John Birch ideology or democratic values.

VET THE CANDIDATES!

HEY POLITICIANS! HERE’S WHAT I KNOW ABOUT TAXES, AND I’M THE GUY THAT PAYS MINE.

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

“Grover Norquist: George H.W. Bush ‘Lied’ To America ”

OK Grover, here is the bottom line.  There are no working Middle Class Americans that know who you are or really give a crap.

You have  a thing with taxes?  Here is news for you, nothing is free in this world and I willingly pay taxes for services rendered and that ain’t easy; but my kids need an education and my parents who are too old to work need to eat and have medical care; my parents have already paid their dues in Social Security tax/insurance, whatever you want to call it, nothing is free.

So get your head out of your anal orifice and quit trying to tell me about taxes, I actually pay mine without exemptions for my Olympic show horse or capital gains, or overhead; I want my kids to be able to read and write, I want the police and fire department to protect my family, and I want my starving neighbor to have food stamps (yea, I’m a sucker for the down and out).

There is one thing I DON’T NEED, and that is Gover Norquist telling me, DON’T PAY ANY TAXES!

Holy crap!  All I want is a decent standard of living for my family, my parents, and my neighbors.  I always thought that was what America was all about!

HOW REPUBICANS HOPE TO WIN IN 2012 BY BEATING DEMOCRACY

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

I have never felt in any Presidential election in my long life that Republican candidates were a viable alternative to Democratic candidates; this is because I have always had to work for a living to insure the well being of my family. Democrats are more representative of the working Middle Class.

This election year, I have no respect for any Republican candidates including Mitt and Twit, based on what their own Republican opponents said about them in the primary.

Personally, I have suffered through the Republican’s Watergate, Iran/Contra scandal, Desert Storm that was bin Laden’s motive for 9/11, Afghanistan, Iraq, Prisoner Torture, Tax Cuts for the Wealthy, Huge National Debt, and Economic Depression; it was not a positive experience.

Today, I see Republicans’ hateful, and vitriolic attacks on President Obama without cause and look at Republican alternatives to President Obama and conclude that Republicans are sleazy, the party of sleaze.

Republicans appear to acknowledge that fact and intend to win the 2012 election by prohibiting Democrats from voting.

I’m amazed that Republicans flaunt their anti-working-Middle-Class-American agenda, elimination labor unions, eliminating public schools, and enacting legislation preventing the working Middle Class and poor citizens from voting; these Republicans are sleazy and arrogant about it.

Republicans are confident they will have no trouble being elected despite working Middle Class Americans are a majority in America. My recall of the Supreme Court election of W. Bush 2000, Bush’s Diebold voting machine election 2004, Republicans Citizens United Mid Term Elections 2010 and I surmise that Mitt and Twit are convinced they’ll win against democracy in 2012. It’s scary.

THE UNITED STATES NEEDS TO DUMP ITS FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS THAT ALLOWS CORPODRATE AMERICA TO OURSOURCE OUR JOBS; AMERICA NEEDS TO MAKE EQUAL TRADE AGREEMENTS WITH NEIGHBORING NATIONS LIKE RUSSIA AND CUBA WHO SHARE OUR MUTUAL ECONOMIC PROBLEMS AND NEED TO CREATE JOBS

Saturday, August 18th, 2012

America’s Free Trade Agreements have noting to do with free trade.  Nothing is free, and America is paying for its free trade agreements with loss of jobs from Corporate Americas’ outsourcing of our jobs.  The United States is losing jobs to China and Indonesia and spurning equal trade with our NEIGHBORS Russia and Cuba; can anyone but Corporate America justify a comparison of China to Russia and Cuba in terms of human rights.

All that free trade with China has done is destroy the opportunity of workers in America, Russia, and Cuba from enjoying a livelihood.

Where has America’s friendship with Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and China taken us?

America could also use some new friends in this world, some friends of the people and not Corporate America, some friends among our neighbors.

PAUL RYAN IS MITT’S CHOICE FOR VP; DEMOCRATS APPROVE!

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

Holy crap!  Mitt Romney choosing Paul Ryan or Ryan Paul (I hate to try to talk about people with two first names and no surname) for his Vice Presidential running mate today was a huge success; no one mentioned Mitt not paying income tax all day long.  It appears to me that tomorrow, Mitt will still have not paid any income tax or made his tax returns public.

Anyway, Mitt had a holiday from talk of unpaid tax or hiding tax returns; everyone was talking about Ryan Paul and his ties to Tom Delay, dancing with the stars, and Delay’s appeal of his conviction.

American politics are strange adventures, like working for months to get the vote and then have the Supreme Court throw out the vote and select the one with a minority support to be President; in any other civilized country the voters would rise up and revolt.  But actually Americans don’t really take voting seriously; it appears to them to be more like playing roulette with Diebold voting machines, insufficient voting booths, or being unable to get voter ID.  Seems like every State of the 50 has its one device for screwing voters.  So much for equal voting rights in America

My only advice to Ryan Paul would be to not loan Mitt money!
