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
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.
We live in a very dangerous time when everything that we know and believe has been turned on it’s ear, up is down, left is right and good is evil. The First Amendment is only valid for people who agree with the self-proclaimed First Amendment police. Innocent until proven guilty only applies to those who support a particular ideology. The Free Press is free to support the political agenda of the Washington Elite. Patriotism is Jingoism and hating America is patriotic.
How did we, as a nation reach the point that an organization as twisted by political ideology as the Southern Poverty Law Center has become the arbiter of all things right and wrong? Our media uses this group as the source for anything “Hate” related. Taking a moment to browse their list of Hate Groups will shock you. Any group which is for traditional values, traditional marriage, against amnesty for illegal aliens and etc. is labeled a hate group by these people while groups like Black-bloc seem to be conspicuously missing. Basically to be a Hate Group you must first oppose liberal policies. Continue reading
Misleading ad’s which intentionally take opponents out of context are the norm in modern politics. Misleading ad’s which selectively cherry pick facts to twist reality to favor the positions of a particular candidate are also the norm. Are ads, like the one with Joe Soptic which are filled with nothing but blatant lies going to be the new norm? First we will take a look at the ad, take it apart to see what is said, compare that to what the Democrats and other Progressives who defend this ad are saying and compare all of that to the truth.
To start off here is the ad:
Here is the truth:
The Democrats and their supporters are constantly preaching to those of us on the right end of the political spectrum about how we need to be more civil. How we need to elevate the discourse and come to a middle ground. Unfortunately all of this rhetoric is pointless because those calling for civility are themselves the least civil.
Take Nancy Pelosi who claims that Republicans are members of the ecoli club. Or Harry Reid who claims that Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years but has also admitted he has zero proof to support this claim. It is clear this is a lie, but Harry Reid and others on the left are still spreading this lie. We also have the Democrat who threatened and physically intimidated a TEA Party lady. The TEA Party has been designated as a potential domestic terror organization by both the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Army. All of this under a Democrat Administration.
It is being reported that the Obama Administration is suing Ohio for it’s voter policy. This time it is not for prohibiting Illegal Aliens, felons and dead people on the voter roles but rather permitting active duty military people to have extra time to get their absentee ballots turned in. In what has to be the most politically motivated voter actions ever taken by any Presidential Administration the Obama “Justice” department is fighting on behalf of illegal aliens, felons and dead people while fighting against our troops!
