The Day After

I'm rather depressed today, perhaps because the future is uncertain and I fear I will not find proper medical care when it's most needed. Last night my stomach turned because my choice was definitely not Obama. But quite frankly, I wasn't 100% sold on Romney. If I had been, you would have seen an excited post about how much I thought he would save our country. I don't know if anyone can save it. Those who don't follow politics at all would think such a statement dramatic and may accuse me of over reacting. The fact is, there are no native born Americans alive who have ever experienced a country NOT free. We take our freedoms for granted... those of us born here have never known oppression and therefore may not recognize it.

I found a blog today that listed out statistics that make me wonder just what on earth people really think. Where do we come up with these stats and just what group of people are being asked? It makes me think all polls are fixed and fraud. I do not agree with these statistics and can't believe that I'm that far off from the norm.

Blog where stats were posted.
  • 72% of Americans agree that "differences in income are too large"
  • 68% reject the notion that the distribution of wealth and income is fair
  • 68% agree that government "must see that no one is without food, clothing, or shelter"
  • 87% agree that "government should spend whatever is necessary to ensure that all children have really good public schools they can go to"
  • 81% "favor own tax dollars being used to help pay for early childhood education in kindergarden and nursery school"
  • 80% "favor own tax dollars being used to help pay for retraining programs for people whose jobs have been eliminated"
  • 73% agree that "it is the responsibility of the federal government to make sure that all Americans have healthcare coverage"
I wish I knew where these stats really came from... I almost wonder if someone just made them up or only asked specific people or misleading questions. I do not agree that it is my governments responsibility to make sure all Americans have healthcare coverage. The government can't even keep Medicare running properly... I hate to think of a government run healthcare system. The insanity of it overwhelms me. So just what 73% of what 100% of people were asked?

Remove Freedom and Call It Love

The Left's Agenda - Remove Freedom and Call It Love

The more the Left points their fingers at the Right, the more I realize just how power hungry and obsessive they are about creating the most exclusive group of specialized egotistical individuals who care nothing for anything other than promoting their own agendas, wealth, and nose in the air. They disgust me!

And of course they blame the Right, the Republicans, the Conservatives, and anyone who might lean in that direction for the latest storm to hit New York. Sandy is the fault of other human beings... namely those mentioned here. As if we, mere humans, could cause nature to do what we want. Nature is not one to take directions or commands. Nature is above us all. To assume that we cause storms that have hit the Earth long before humans ever appeared is egotistical and asinine.

America is one of, if not the biggest Earth friendly countries on the planet... and yet... somehow we are to blame for every horrible even that happens. More specifically, anyone who is not in the Liberal's back pocket.

I will vote against these people in every way possible. No matter how much we give them, they always want more. Their agenda is to take away every freedom we have and then dish out little pieces of 'benefits' to those who praise them and keep them in power. They will, in turn, call these benefits "freedoms" and claim that due to their hard work, they have provided more freedoms than ever before. They will demand great rewards for this hard work and only those who give them the most back rubs will benefit from the most freedoms.

America is the foundation of freedom. If we let them destroy the foundation, they will build their own hell on Earth and call it sweet to the taste. It will eventually only mimic what other failing countries have built and people will wear a physiological ball-and-chain with the literal freedom limitations none of us can comprehend because we have never been without freedom.

My hope is Obama is stopped... and when I say Obama, I mean not only him but all those who thrust him into power. He is the puppet of his party as well as their leader.

Presidential Debates, Part II

Yes, I have a Twitter account... No, I don't understand it much. But tonight I was on-line during the third debate between Obama and Romney and really enjoyed watching the comments go up my screen. Even had a few responses back from those I commented on... people who are actually 'famous' by some standard. ;)

From my point of view... Romney seemed confident in what he was saying, he knew what to say without feeling too pressured. Although he did stutter a bit but they both did that and in some cases simply because there wasn't enough time to say ten minutes worth of words into a two minute time frame. 

Obama seemed angry just like he has his entire presidency and even before being crowned. His advisers may have told him to look at Romney, unlike the first debate, but instead he drilled his eye knives into his skull. Anyone who is angry and president cannot be fully trusted not to fly off the handle and send us into even worse territory than we are today.

Presidential Debates

One more debate to watch and then I can take another deep breath. I know who I'm voting for... but I gotta say these debates really give the public a look inside the way the candidates react to each other, to the questions, and to emotions in general.

I will never be a politician nor have I ever thought of it as a career... never mind career... a life choice. To be a politician means you must set your jaw and bull your way forward for your party's agenda no matter your own beliefs.

It is a strong belief of mine that the political world is why our lives are so full of mistrust of other people. I believe it's one of the reasons Republicans and Democrats are so often on the exact opposite side of so many different issues. Makes me wonder if we will ever... ever... have a president who doesn't have an R or a D after his or her name.

Perhaps it is the pessimist in me but it seems they want us divided... they want the biggest and loudest activist of every issue from every possible side to stomp their feet, scream their opinions, and attack the opposition. After all, if we all get along and all believe the same things... think of how quickly they would be out of a job!

On the other hand, I would not want to live in any country where every person thinks the same thing or believes the same thing... that would be a bizarre, empty headed reality that would kill every bit of imagination any human can have.

But when each side points at the other and yells 'it's because of you' it gets a little old. We are not all the extreme of each side... those individuals along with their political kings and queens love to keep us at each others throats because their careers... their political life choice depends on our disagreements.

After the Convention

I enjoyed those parts of the Republican convention I was able to watch. Much of it hit a cord for me... made me want to take another look at Romney and Ryan. I hope adding Ryan was a good move... I originally thought another would be best suited.

It annoys me to find out that people think Romney's comment about calling on an American for the really big stuff is a comment that Obama is not American. Not everything is about Obama! And it seems to me that those who read that crap into what was clearly a thank you to Neil Armstrong actually have their doubts about Obama's place of birth or they wouldn't keep bringing it up.

ROMNEY: Tonight that American flag is still there on the moon, and I don't doubt for a second that Neil Armstrong's spirit is still with us -- that unique blend of optimism, humility, and the utter confidence that when the world needs someone to do the really big stuff, you need an

For example, much like when someone singles out an individual or group and claims they are against gays. Most of the time, I can't tell if someone is gay or not gay. I don't think to myself "gee, I wonder if that person is gay". I treat everyone the same. 

But apparently there are people out there that make a big distinction between gay or not gay and they are usually the ones pointing fingers and yelling intolerance. They are the ones who distinguish... they are the haters among us. 

Granted, there are those who truly do hate people who are gay or any number of reasons to hate another or a group of people. Those people are not the majority of humans... they are the minority... they are the true haters; them and those who continually pull us apart.

So after the convention I am left baffled, once again, as to why certain people feel the desire to tear us apart and form us into groups that are separate. We are the same... we are human... but to them we are numbers, sexual persuasions, religious groups, skin color, pro-this, pro-that... they WANT us to be against one another so they can control us. 

Don't let them!

The Candidates!

Thoughts on the candidates.

Paul is old and wants to internalize America…
Newt is always angry about something and has a mobster feel to him…
Romney seems greasy and fake but very confident…
Santorum looks scared to death & doesn’t seem to know what he will say next.

I find this very depressing… and honestly, the last election DID depress me and thinking about this depresses me again. I sadly fear BO will continue to stink up the country another 4 years and we’ll be bumming off bums before too long. Why? Because we need a Reagan and can't seem to find one. I will keep everything that I can possibly cross, crossed, and hope that the American people can see that electing Obama another term will doom our country. We're already in deep crap!

ID Not Required to Vote in Texas

I realize I haven't posted to this blog in a very long time. Politics seems to have a negative effect on me and the last couple of years has been quite disappointing. This last week I started receiving updates from different news sources and of course that got my neck hairs bristled a bit.

Here is what I wrote to a friend in email:

Two things that ticked me off this morning…

1. Funny… I have always been required to show my ID when voting.

Justice Department files objection to Texas voter ID law

The Justice Department is objecting to a new photo ID law in Texas for voters, saying the state has failed to demonstrate that the law is not discriminatory by design against Hispanic voters.

2. No tax would be nice but a flat 10% tax would allow many to save money on their own to pay for health care. And then… maybe doctors and medical facilities will learn the word “competition” and not rely on Medicare to tell them what they can charge.

Administration releases rules for signing up Americans to Obama's health care law

The Obama administration is releasing a blueprint for states to sign up millions of uninsured Americans for medical coverage through the president's health care law.

~end email~

And these two issues hit my alert system within minutes of each other. This is why it's so hard to continue to keep up with all that is going on in the world of politics... my sanity is far more important... maybe. :-)
May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
