Forgive me but this new Growth and Opportunity Project from the GOP may very well be the final nail in the coffin for the GOP as far as I’m concerned. I challenge anyone to actually read what this “project” is about and tell me that it is not traditional Democrat Party nonsense rebranded as Republican. Nothing more than empty “feel good” politics which do not solve any problems other than to keep certain members of the Republican Political Establishment in power. John McCain, Lindsay Graham and etc. Those wonderful Progressive Republicans who like to jump on the bandwagon of those who claim that it is us Conservatives and Libertarians who are coopting the party. The simple truth is that the party used to be what we are now. Continue reading
This is the latest from the Obama campaign.
We are expected to believe that Obama will reach across the isle in his second term? This is Presidential? This President is a national disgrace whether it be his treasonous handling of the Benghazi situation or the way he runs his campaign.
I, being a Conservative, am told on a regular basis by Progressives, Liberals and etc that I am a racist, I hate starving people, I want the air dirty, the water poisoned and etc. So let us take a moment to compare and contrast two issues which are important to the left, these are Hunger and the Environment. We could go into a hundred different examples but I will stick to just two, providing food for the hungry and reducing our dependency on oil through renewable biofuel.
According to the 2012 World Hunger and Poverty Facts and Statistics there were 925 million people who went hungry in 2010, which is the most recent year the statistics exist. Don’t dig too deeply into their numbers because you will find they made a lot of assumptions which could not be measured. In otherwords they did a little guessing. Continue reading
You know I find it ironic how diametrically opposite the opinions of some individuals can be depending on who is in the White House. Take for instance the liberal talking head on FoxNews earlier today who was bragging about how tough Obama has been because of all his drone strikes in Pakistan. Compare that to how the left vilified Bush while he was in office for any drone strikes. Now the fact that Obama has had many more drone strikes than Bush is considered something to brag about. Consider also how incensed the left was during the Bush Administration because we were in 2, what they call, illegal wars. Compare that to the absolute lack of any outrage over the fact that it is quietly reported Obama has sent troops into 75 sovereign nations. So Bush entering 2 wars while involving Congress is warmongering and illegal while Obama lobbing drone based missiles into places who are supposedly our allies, against their permission and having combat troops in 75 countries is neither warmongering or illegal? I’m sure the left can come up with a perfectly irrational explanation to justify this. The reality is that it has to do only with the R or the D behind the name of the person in the office.
Well the headlines are out, Mitt Romney only paid around 14% in taxes last year. The spin is in full swing. What you will not find out is the fact that this was not from Income Taxes which he had already paid but interest so he is basically being taxed a second time. Also the fact that he paid about 30% of his income to charities is hid quite deep in each story I have read. The fact that he only claimed around 1% of his charitable givings on his taxes thereby paying a higher rate than the law requires is also buried deep. Something else missing? The fact that those who are most vocal about him releasing his taxes, people like Harry Reid and Debbie Wasserman Schultz have refused to release theirs.
From Merriam Webster:
It is curious that leftists are constantly preaching at those of us on the right about our tone, the level of discourse and etc. Yet all I seem to find from the left is petty, childish, slanderous, mud slinging and name calling. Take for example the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee. This is not supposed to be some left wing bomb throwers like Media Matters or the New Black Panthers. These are supposed to be elected officials who represent all of their constituents when on the job. So how do they elevate the discourse? With this.
