The Death of the Republican Party

Posted by Troy on 2nd March 2016 in Current Events, Political

The Republican party is talking about how they can keep Trump from becoming the nominee.  This is basically “by hook or by crook.”  They want to be sure that they can have a brokered convention.  When that happens, they will give the nominee to Rubio or Romney or someone more suitable.  If they do this, the Republican Party is DEAD.  It would appear that close to half of Republicans want Trump.  If they give it to someone else when he legitimately won the nomination, these voters will be pissed.  They will feel utterly disenfranchised, and they will go third party.  The Republican Party will never be a national party again.  Hopefully, it would be replaced with the Libertarian party, but it’s entirely possible that the result will actually be a more nationalist party.  While I don’t think that there is a problem with nationalism, nationalistic parties never really work well.  Although, I would actually like to see our government more concerned about America than “America’s place in this world” or “our position at the table of nations” or any other such dumb concepts.  As though the rest of the world is thinking, “I wonder what we could do to improve the plight of children in Detroit.”

If the Republicans want to defeat Trump, they need to convince everyone but Cruz to drop.  If Cruz drops, at least 25% of his supporters go to Trump and Trump wins.  Get it down to a two man race, and let the best man win.

Long Live the Constitution!

Next Move For the Republican Party

Posted by Troy on 8th November 2012 in Current Events, Political

The GOP, as we know it, is dead.  Their arguments are based on logic and, apparently, that is something the majority of Americans cannot follow due to the dumbing down of America.

The vast majority of Republicans want a Conservative candidate.  That’s not going to work.  We need a cool person.  No one cares about their stances or records.  After all, Obama won with 2 years in the Senate where he voted “present” all the time.  After four disasterous years, he still got re-elected.  Why?   Who the hell knows?!

Here is the winning strategy for Republicans.  You have three branches.  You have Conservatives, Moderates, and Libertarians.  Depending on the area you are in, put the one most likely to win.  If you are in Washington or California, go with a Libertarian.  If you are in the South, go with a Conservative, or whatever you got to do.  Remember, the Legislative Branch is the one that makes the laws.  This is far and away the most important part.  Controlling which laws are passed or repealed is the most important thing.

For President, choose someone with NO record who is the right skin tone (darker the better it seems) and can play a musical instrument really cool and give great speeches.  He can say whatever he wants to get elected, and then do the exact opposite, and no one will care!  Obama is living proof of it.

My advice for Republicans, stop pretending that the bulk of the American electorate is intelligent, thoughtful, and informed.  They are none of these things.  They are brainwashed and shallow.  Run with it.  The Democrats have, and it seems to be doing well with it.

Long Live the Constitution!

The Election Results

Posted by Troy on 7th November 2012 in Current Events, Political

My hope and faith have been replaced by a grim determination to survive four more years of Fascist rule.

I had hoped that there would be enough enthusiasm on Romney’s side to carry him, but apparently the 47% Romney talked about was just as enthusiastic to defend their right to free stuff.  By the way, that whole 53/47% thing was a reaction to the 99/1% thing at the time.  Remember, context matters.  53% of people pay income taxes, the others are takers on the other side.  Again, imagine you offered to buy your friends lunch.  You were going to buy them a burger from McDonalds, but they take a vote and you have to take them to Ruth Chris instead.  Does that sound logical to you?  Why are the people who aren’t paying for the lunch getting a say in the lunch?  That’s what we have done, and now we are paying the price.  Gee, I wonder if the leeches will say, “No, I’ve have enough,” or if they will saw, “Why does my Obamaphone only come with 100 minutes per month?  That guy has an unlimited plan, I should too!”

His re-election defies logic.  He started his Presidency with 80% approval.  Over four years, that has been a steady slide to 50%.  Gee, I wonder if we can use trend analysis to figure out how the next four years will work out for us!  Unemployment is pretty much flat.  Regardless of the lip service, experts predict that it will actually go back up to about 9% for 2013.  Great.  GDP is growing at about 2%, which is pathetic.  He’s already proven that he will not work with Republicans.  Mitt was going to do what he said he would…because there is proof that he can work with people from the other party!  Obama will not do so.  To Obama, the fiscal cliff and debt downgrades and other catastrophes are bargaining chips to get exactly what he wants.  ”Do it my way, or the country will be destroyed, and I will blame you.”  There is no give and take, and this is the time when we actually need some give and take.

The Middle East is burning, but who cares, honestly?  Screw the Middle East when the Constitution is burning.  He lied more than Nixon, but he’ll never be impeached.  Even trying to impeach this Fascist will get you labeled a racist and the Senate wouldn’t convict him if they discovered a tape of him having sex with a 14 year old.  If R. Kelly could get away with it, why not Obama, right?  We have no standards these days.  We’ve tripled the money supply.  As a result, gas and food prices are soaring, but that’s not inflation.  There’s no correlation between prices and money supply these days.  It won’t get worse now that we are going to try indefinite printing of money.  That won’t affect our debt rating.  That won’t prevent people from buying our debt knowing that we are going to repay their $1 of debt with $.75.  I guess that won’t matter.  As long as we have free birth control.  God, how horrible would it be to live in a country where you have to buy your own $9 a month birth control.  Praise Obama!  Pa-Raise him!  He has saved us from having to take care of ourselves and support our own lifestyles.  Pa-Raise him.

He had 50% approval when he actually cared what you people thought about him.  Now, he’s free and clear.  Now comes the fun part of his reign.  Watch for Executive Orders to set right the evils of this country.  Remember, both he and Michelle were members of the “We Hate America” crowd in college.  Do you really think they’ve changed that much?  He wanted flexibility with Russia, he got it.  UN treaties with the force of law?  You got it!  Giving away our sovereignty to a global government?  You got it!  When Obamacare hits in 2014, all the bad stuff that he postponed until after his election, look for businesses to fail while we already have 9% unemployment causing a chain reaction which devastates us.  Watch for the stock market to tank after he does away with the “unfair” capital gains rate.  Come and talk to me after 2014 about this would be savior.  Come talk to me when China will not lend us any more money and he has to take away your Obamaphone.

The great reset is coming.  Get some guns and ammo to deal with looters and rioters when they have to shut down the socialist machine.  Three to six months of rice and beans for the adjustment period when the reset button is hit, and pray that we emerge under the Constitution and not under the tyranny of a totalitarian government.  Read 2084, the Search for Love, Hope, and Faith.

Long Live the Constitution!

Bill Clinton’s lament

Posted by Troy on 5th November 2012 in Current Events, Political

Some people are accrediting Obama’s impending victory on Clinton’s endorsement.  These are the reasons why Bill Clinton will end up regretting his support of Barrack Obama should he win a second term:

1)  I don’t really think that Clinton likes Obama.  I don’t he’s liked him since 2008.  I think that he knows Obama is inept and is as dirty a politician as any other.  ie, he’ll lie or do whatever it takes to make what he wants happen.

2)  Four more years of Obama will leave this country destroyed.  There is no way that Hillary will ever have a shot at being President as people will blame the massive destruction at Obama’s feet.  He will be unable to blame it on Bush after 8 years, particularly in 2014 when provisions of the Health Care Act destroy the economy.

3)  Even if that was not true, the truth about Libya will come out.  Given Hillary’s “my bad” speech where she took full responsibility, she will never be trusted as Commander in Chief.  She couldn’t even handle the security of an embassy.  Do you think they will give her control of the armed forces?

4)  Obama is no Bill Clinton.  God bless him.  All Bill wanted to do was have sex with interns and be beloved.  As such, he moved to the center, and the House Republicans gave him balanced budgets and welfare reform.  Obama will never do that.

5)  Bill is ruining his own legacy.  Hear me out:  he is making a liar of himself (okay, that’s an easy job for him, but still!).  There is no way Obama will do anything like he suggests.  Obama will never reduce the deficit.  His policies will not improve the economy.  He will never bring us together.  Things will fall apart.

Hillary’s shot may all be dead already.  However, if Obama is re-elected, her fate is sealed.

Long Live the Constitution!

Sandy attacks the northeast

Posted by Troy on 31st October 2012 in Political

A lot of people are asking: How is this going to affect the election?

I think that it is difficult for a President to get a boost from handling a storm correctly.  Now, blundering it might hurt them, but doing the baseline of whatever it is they are supposed to do probably won’t help them.  I just don’t see people seeing the Federal government as their salvation.  Also, most of the states affected are going to vote for Obama regardless.

I would like to point out: Romney was criticized for politicizing Libya.  However, the media cheers when Obama politicizes a natural disaster!

For those who say: how dare you!  The President is helping those in need!  Okay… where was he when the entire state of Texas was burning?  Where was he when Memphis was underwater?  He didn’t seem to care.  Was it because those states are “Red States?”  Or does it have to be closer to an election for him to give a damn?

The President is doing nothing about this storm.  If he was put in charge of the relief effort, this thing would be a mess like you would not believe.  No, the head of FEMA and the Red Cross, and others are doing the relief efforts.  All Obama has done is shown up for photo ops and to take up valuable time from people actually doing work so that he can get said photo ops.  Meanwhile, when Americans were dying in Libya, he was no where to be found.  He IS Commander in Chief!  That is an actual duty of his.  Where was he?  Now they say that Obama didn’t order the stand down.  Their story is so convoluted that it cannot be believed.  So which option do you like?

1)  Obama knew nothing and the state department blew it.  Great, so a Commander and Chief that doesn’t know what’s going on?

2)  Obama knew of the attack, but thought it was a protest.  Wait, they said they knew it was a terrorist attack.

3)  Obama knew of the attack but didn’t order help.  So you have the balls to order a strike into an “ally” country to kill bin Laden but not to save our people?

4)  Obama ordered the rescue effort, but the order was cancelled.  This would be a lie unless Obama fires the person that gave that order.  The fired person would immediately turn and rat Obama out, so he can’t do that.

5)  Obama ordered the stand down.  Not good, and he just lied and said that he didn’t order it.

Notice, there are no “win” positions for the man!

Long Live the Constitution!

Why isn’t Libya and hiding the jobs numbers a big deal?

Posted by Troy on 29th October 2012 in Current Events, Political

For the life of me, I cannot understand this.  We have a case where American soil (our embassy) was attacked.  Our ambassador was murdered.  A massive cover-up of these events occurred.  The President knowingly lied to us for three weeks about the reasons for the attack.  An American was wrongfully thrown in jail over these events (the filmmaker).  And the only reason to lie is for political gain.  And no one cares?  As the man said, if he lied to you once, he’ll lie to you again.  We impeached Nixon over a silly little burglary, and we’re going to let this slide?  McCain is right: either they are lying or this is gross incompetence.  Since no one has been fired (specifically Hillary Clinton), we can assume that it’s lying.

And so now the Department of Labor isn’t going to release the job numbers Friday because of the weather.  The results have been computed since last week.  All they have to do is click the “Send” button, and we’re done.  So why won’t they release them?  I am going to say because it will so the last numbers were inaccurate.  In order for the last numbers to be correct, 342,000 part time jobs would have had to have been created.  In a good month, you might expect 20,000 such jobs.  Where did the other 322,000 jobs come from?  And now we’re not going to see the real number.  Why?

Of course, I guess if you don’t mind being lied to about Libya, maybe you don’t mind being lied to about the economy as well.  That’s fortunate.  Should Obama win, you will get to have four more years of lies about the economy.  Enjoy.

Long Live the Constitution!

Foreign Policy Debate

Posted by Troy on 22nd October 2012 in Current Events, Political

Mitt Romney’s Message:  ”Me too.”

I think Romney’s strategy was “Do not lose this debate.”  Washington realized that he didn’t have to win the Revolution.  He just had to not lose.  Obama is behind.  If Obama won this debate, maybe that would have changed.  With more or less agreeing with the substance of Obama’s policies, Romney guaranteed that Obama could not have won.

On some of the issues that Obama called Romney out on:  Yes, the administration wanted to keep some troops in Iraq.  However, the new Iraqi government said that they would be subject to arrest and Iraqi laws.  So we pulled out.  Second, the Navy demanded more ships.  That’s a fact.  I like what one marine said: “We still use bayonets.”  Third: Romney was not for the destruction of the auto industry.  He was, in fact, for restructuring through bankruptcy with government guarantees.

I know that Romney wasn’t allowed to be rude, so let me tell you what he should have said:

Obama: “Your budgets will not balance.”  Romney’s response:  ”Maybe I should listen to him.  No one knows more about budgets not balancing than he does.”

Obama: “You wanted to kill the auto industries!”  Romney: “You have no idea about business law.  Bankruptcy doesn’t do away with a business, it only gives it a chance to restructure and emerge capable of surviving.”  (Note, I clapped for Romney’s real answer which did actually explain this concept…but my quip is wittier.)

Obama: “Iran is weaker now than ever!”  Romney:  ”And yet they keep trying to get the nuclear weapon.”

Obama:  ”The dollar is most advantageous for exporters than it ever has been.”  Romney: “That’s because it’s the weakest its ever been.”

Obama can never square why he helped Libya and not Iran and Syria (who are bigger enemies of ours).  Qaddafi killed Americans…decades ago.  For the last few decades, he’s been alright to us.  It took a Libya absent of Qaddafi to kill our ambassador.

I think, in the end, Obama can’t run from his record.  Worse for him, the economy is the most important thing.  Tonight was largely unimportant.  Between someone that can get the economy going or someone that can tame the Middle East, the economy wins.

I think it was a draw, which means it was a devastating defeat.  Obama needed Romney to come out and show that he was absolutely clueless about foreign policy.  When that didn’t happen, Obama’s ship was sunk.  People care about the economy.  Foreign policy was a far second.  If Romney can do a passable job with foreign policy and get the economy firing on all cylinders, we will chose Romney.

I do take issue on one thing: Obama’s answers were all the same: Roads and bridges, teachers, and class warfare.  That’s all he has, and they are just soundbites.  Romney had a great closing statement, and I think that was the knife in Obama’s heart.

Long Live the Constitution!

Binders Full of Women

Posted by Troy on 18th October 2012 in Current Events, Political

Unbelievable.  They are actually trying to make something out of the “binders full of women” comment.  I find you can understand what the liberals are driving at by listening to the women on the View.  They say that he offended because he didn’t say “Binders full of women’s resumes” or what would have been better “Binders full of resumes of women.”  Okay, did anyone, anyone think that they brought in binders 6 feet by 3 feet by 20 feet full of actual women?  Seriously?  It is bizarre that they can even pretend that this was offensive.  No one would be offended by this unless they were told they were to be offended.  I also think that it shows how desperate the Democrats are becoming.  I also doubt it worked, and I am sure that it is going to backfire.  I would think that women would not take kindly to being treated as though they were sheep.

Obama’s Performance, Gallup, and the War on Women

Posted by Troy on 17th October 2012 in Current Events, Political

Wow, the Democrats are really grasping at straws to keep the narrative of a “war on women” running.  I really do think that they think Americans are idiots.  What are they trying to make a mountain out of?  ”Romney has binders of women.”  What the hell is wrong with that?  Perhaps he had binders of women’s applications?  I really don’t get it.  I seriously don’t.

So, today we were treated to the media telling us that Obama won the debate.  Good for him.  Unfortunately for him, he is behind Romney according to likely voters 51% to 47%.  If Dick Morris is right about undecideds, it is actually 54% to 47%.  My point?  If he “won” the debate, and his is losing the election, things have really gone badly for Obama.

I foresee Obama being destroyed on the next debate.  Romney will be fully prepared to rip him to shreds on Libya.  We spent millions “liberating” Libya, and this is how we’ve been repaid.  It’s gonna be bad for Obama.

The fact of the matter is that on the most important issues, the debt and economy, Romney won overwhelming.  If those two things tank, everything else is irrelevant.

Long Live the Constitution!

Debate Results

Posted by Troy on 16th October 2012 in Current Events, Political

The real answer: tie.  Whichever one you support, you think won.

Now I will give my detailed reactions throughout the debate:

Obama said that everyone needs a great education.  This is wrong.  Do we need janitors with PhDs?  Nope.  When it comes down to education for all, it’s a lie.  We will need janitors and garbage men and grave diggers, and there’s no reason why they should be saddled down with student debt nor taking away class time from those that we want to be rocket scientists, doctors, and lawyers.  Of course, he wants to build roads and bridges.  Bridges and roads.  Of course, only the Democrats think that roads are a natural function of government…not!  Hey, if roads equal jobs, why don’t we build four lane highways to every rural town in the United States?  Ask the Russians how government planned, uneconomical expansions work out for them.  It doesn’t.

Romney finally dealt with how bankruptcy for GM would have gone.  Thank you, Romney!  Yes, GM would still exist.  Union contracts would have been renegotiated, and the companies would be in a much stronger position they are now.  Right now, all we have to look forward to is the further bailing out of them in the future.

Obama wants to double gas mileage.  That’s nice.  Of course, what this will mean is that all US made cars will be hybrids that cost at least $10,000 more than their foreign counterparts.  What this means is that our companies are going to be slaughtered in the market.  Good going!  He wants all this investment in the energy sources of the future…at 16 trillion in debt and counting.  Has it occurred to him that we would be better served to let other countries figure out how to make the green energy affordable and then copy their technology?  Works well for Apple…  Just saying…

Romney finally threw Obama’s comment about coal plants going bankrupt under Obama’s plan in Obama’s face.  Thank you, Romney!  Finally, let that come to light.

The moderator is completely bias.  Obama ended with 3 minutes more speaking time than Romney.  Obama was allowed to invade Romney’s speaking time.  I was quite happy when Romney finally took control and basically told Obama “Sit down, I’m talking!”  Obama’s body posture suggested indifference or worse.

Then Obama says “The reason gas prices were so low when I got in was the economy was bad.”   WHAT?!!!!  What?!  Are you kidding me?  Gas prices are determined by if the economy is good or bad?

I appreciate Romney’s ability to control the flow in the face of a hostile environment.

Romney finally did a good job explaining his tax policy.

Obama responded by going to class warfare suggesting the rich had attacked the middle class over the last twenty years.  He claims that a balanced budget is a moral obligation despite the fact that Obama has racked up 6 trillion in debt and is slated to have another 4 trillion in debt in the future.  His main thing seemed to be claiming “I’m like Bill Clinton!”  I would like to point out that Marxists always demand “fairness,” and that’s what Obama keeps pleading for.  Obama’s plan for improving the economy?  College and hiring veterans.  WHAT?!  Oh my God!  Finally, what is different between a tax cut and tax rate cut in his opinion?

Why does the moderator always let Obama get the last word and drone on and on and on?  Man…such bias!  There is GREAT advantage in getting the last word.

Per usual, Obama resorts to antedotes in regards to women’s rights and claims that Romney wants to prevent women from getting contraception.

Then the most bias question of the night:  ”You’re like Bush, aren’t you Romney?”  Where was the “You’re like Carter, aren’t you Obama?” question?

Obama’s answer:  Bush!  He’s to blame for all this!  It wasn’t me!  Shaggy would be proud.  ”Just say It wasn’t me.”

Then we have  a real question…inflation.  Obama droned on and on and didn’t answer the question.  Didn’t you triple the money supply?  That probably has something to do with the inflation rate.

A Latina asked a question.  Why can’t either of the candidates get her name right?  Romney did a bad job holding Obama to account.  He tried, but what he should have said is “You had both houses.  You could have passed whatever you wanted with not a single Republican vote.  Why didn’t you?  You promised the Latinos you would.  Why didn’t you?”  Bam.  Obama’s dead.

Moderator: Do you ever intend to stop Obama from talking over his allotted time?!  No?  Oh, okay.

Obama responded: I wanna change the topic!

Then we come up with Libya.  Obama’s response?  I’m going to talk and not say anything-his typical answer.  Romney’s reply to the whole Libya thing, after setting him up, should have been “Then you’re incompetent.”  If he didn’t know it was a terrorist attack until 14 days after, he’s incompetent.

Then Obama gets onto the 2nd Amendment.  Of course, all liberals think it’s about hunting and protection.  It is not.  Read the Federalist Papers.  The 2nd Amendment is to protect us from a government run amok.  Romney didn’t see the win.  We already had a assault weapons ban.  Know the effect on crime?  There was none.  Amazingly, criminals are willing to use a different weapon if they can’t get an AK-47.  As far as the shooter in Colorado went, more people would have died if he had used the 12 gauge and his pistols.  At that range, a rifle is actually a worse choice.  If the people had rushed him, he would have only killed 2-3 people max.

I want to give Romney pure bravery points.  He said the truth.  You want to stop youth crime and give the next generation opportunities, get married before having a kid.  I’m surprised Obama didn’t turn that against him, but Romney is 100% right, and that was the bravest thing I’ve heard from a politician – EVER.

The Obama talks about his plans.  After spending so long talking about Romney’s loopholes, what’s Obama’s plan?  To close loopholes!  Hilarious!  Then he starts talking about how he is for self-reliance, and I wanted to yell, “Bullshit, you Commie bastard!”  Neat thing…you can call Obama a bastard and it’s technically correct.  When he talks about “leveling the playing field,” he is talking about Marxism, people.  Wise up.  He has often said that it is the government’s job to ensure that everyone gets a fair shake.  That’s not self-reliance.  That is saying that all social justice is a function of government, and social justice is a function of Marxism.

And, as usual, Obama got the last word, and he used the out of context 47% comment.

Let’s see how this moves the polls.  I will, of course, pull for Romney.

Long Live the Constitution!
