Happy About the Election Results? You Shouldn't Be
At approximately 3:30am, the night of election day, I sent the following email to a few close friends and colleagues. It read: “There’s lots of hand clapping and cheers right now but people have short memories. Remember what we the tea party did in 2010? We didn’t get rid of enough rino incumbents to protect we the people. I’m predicting this time will be worse unless the new blood is drastically different than I and colleagues believe. I hate to be a wet blanket but it is important for someone to sound cautionary alarm. I’ll be ridiculed and called names again but I was right in 2010 and I’m right now. People voted against obama and democrats; they didn’t vote wisely or else Mcconnell, Boehner, McCarthy, Cornyn, McCain, et al wouldn’t be in office. Also look for obama to go for broke during lame duck session and look for republicans to push through amnesty in February under guise of immigration reform. And look for them to do nothing substantive about obamacare and that is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s much more that I’ll share later but for now remember I cautioned you.”[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /]I know this will be a hard truth for many to understand and/or believe. But I do not say it because I enjoy it, I say it because it is true. I’ve been around capitol hill and politics too long not to see this for what it is. I took heat for saying the same thing in 2010 but less than 3 months into things my words were viewed as prescient. My brutal honesty cost me television appearances, invitations to dinners, charities, gala events (all of which I always resolutely refused to attend anyway), and much money etc. My singular objective is to inform you the people. If I was interested in being popular I would sell my soul and become an ideologue.
Later that morning a colleague forwarded me his thoughts which echo my own and which I incorporate here.
My colleague Don Hank wrote: Permit me to warm up an old joke:
The Lone Ranger comes riding up to Tonto at their hideout in the mountains. He’s all out of breath and shouts: “The Redskins are coming. We’ve got to get out of here, Tonto!”
Tonto squints up at him and drawls: “What you mean ‘we,’ white man.”
Are you cheering the fact that “we” now control the House and Senate?
If you are, then you are the problem.
We the People are not represented in Washington, not in either party.
Senate majority leader McConnell’s victory speech provides important clues as to why this is so. USAToday reported highlights thereof. Conspicuously missing is how the GOP differs from the Dems.
“We do have an obligation to work together on issues where we agree,” McConnell said Tuesday evening in his victory speech. “Just because we have a two-party system doesn’t mean we have to be in perpetual conflict.”
So what are those areas where they don’t agree? Does anyone know?
Here is a list of areas where both parties do agree:
Russia and the renewed cold war. Romney and McCain both made it clear that they consider Russia enemy no. 1. Yet just today, new economic figures show that there is a record deficit in our trade in favor of China. And of course, China has boasted in its military journal Junshi that it can wipe the US off the map instantly with its Dongfeng missiles. Russia, which should by all means be our economic model, is trying in vain to be our ally and friend but keeps getting slapped in the face. Do both parties want nuclear war?
Aid to terror. Bashar Assad, the Syrian leader is the only thing standing between Syrian Christians and minorities and death. Both parties, including the one you are congratulating today, want to oust him in favor of ‘moderates’ who have aided and abetted ISIS and admit they want Sharia law.
Keynesianism, a statist system that is a first cousin to Marxism. Keynesianism gave us the bank bailouts, which punish the tax payer for criminally bad management of banks. Ponzi schemes are illegal, but bankers run them and get bailed out when the scheme fails, as they all knew it would. When bailouts became politically impossible, Europe invented the bail-in, open ‘legal’ theft of money from the too-rich-to-exist. Then came another Keynesian scheme, the QEs, a crime when you and I try it, namely, counterfeiting—printing un backed currency. All of these schemes allow the US to run purely on borrowed money. Russia (along with China), by contrast, has the only manageable debt of a world power, and we condemn her for it! How dare she not be in hock up to her neck like we are? Did you hear a peep out of one GOP candidate about any of this? Buyer beware. You just bought more of the same. You aren’t sure the GOP supports Keynesianism? A famous president once said “we are all Keynesians now.” His name? Richard M. Nixon, the man who ushered in “free” trade with China and the decline of US industry. I tried to warn you…about Keyneisanism.
Illegal aliens and the border? Oh, there is a huge difference between the parties. The Democrats want to accomplish unconstitutional amnesty with executive orders while the Republicans want to accomplish unconstitutional amnesty ‘legally.’ Both insist that “fences don’t work” but no one will try this common sense solution. Referring to amnesty, Romney bragged in the last ignominious campaign, “I’ll get it done the first year.” In other words, he would have rewarded 30-40 million lawbreakers by ‘legal’ means, giving them your jobs. He now complains that Obama did this unconstitutional deed illegally? Why unconstitutional? Because Article 4, Section 4 says the federal government must defend the states from invasion. Instead, both parties want to aid and abet the invaders, as they have always done anyway.
Voting laws. Federal laws and court landmarks have made it impossible to monitor whether voters are legal or not. No one is allowed to ask for ID. Did your GOP congressman go to the wall to end this practice?
I didn’t think so.
As for Obamacare, Mitt Romney laid the groundwork for it and now the GOP pretends they oppose it? Give me a break.
How about international law and national sovereignty for the US and other nations? US foreign policy has trampled on other nations for years and we are making enemies wholesale. How does your candidate stand on this? Does he support international law or international lawlessness?
What did your candidate say about ‘gay’ marriage? Nothing, right? Social Marxism is now part and parcel of US culture and in a growing number of states, business people and clergy or JPs must affirm it or lose their livelihood. Schools teach homosexuality as though it were normal and your child must affirm it or else. More and more children will be adopted by same-sex couples and never know their biological parents. Russia is spanked by Washington DC for not allowing its kids to be adopted by US couples because of this perversion of language and culture, and yes, of God’s laws. Get used to it. You voted for the evil that is still evil.
The above is only a sampler of the economic and social perversion that both parties are supporting these days.
So thanks, but I’ll pass on the champagne.[adsanity id=11817 align=alignleft /]
