The States’ Party

Posted in 2008 Election, 2010 Election, 2012 Election, 2014 Election, Politics on August 30th, 2013

GOP - The American ElephantStarting in 2008 and increasingly over the intervening five years we Americans have repeatedly heard how the Republican Party was dying and how the GOP was doomed. Given their showing in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections and also their inability to retake control of the Senate in the 2010 elections from our domestic enemies, this opinion is easy to arrive at and very seductive to the Left.

This, however, is a false assumption. It’s mere hopeful wishing on the part of the Liberals and Progressives and a tool being used by the Establishment GOP to try to maintain control of a party who has left them in favor of returning to America’s roots and core values. It has little or no basis in fact.

To start with, the GOP took control of the House of Representatives and has held that control to this date, with little thought that this will change in the 2014 elections. More important and telling is the Republican Party has been emphatically shown to the the States’ party of choice.

  • 30 states now have Republican governors vs. 20 with Democrat governors
  • 25 states now have GOP control of both the Executive and Legislature vs. 14 where DEMs control both the Executive and Legislature

Does sound or look like the GOP is moribund or does, especially when combined with the GOP’s lasting control of the House, show that the majority of Americans choose and vote Republican?

It’s a simple case of the wisdom of subsidiarity. The closer the position is to the People the more often the People chose Republicans because the closer the position is to the People the less they favor the goals and agenda of the Democrats and the less the election is skewed by the bias and prejudices of the minority voters.

This is why the Democrats and their operatives focus so heavily upon federal control of- and influence over any and matters, most of which are meant to left to the several States. They know that they’ve built their whole platform on catering the needs and desires of those minority of staunchly Liberal states to the exclusion of needs and desires of the majority of Americans. It’s also why those blue states will remain blue. The Democrats’ policies are tailored to them and do a decent job of fulfilling their wishes.

No, the Republican Party isn’t dying. It’s growing from the ground up stronger than before because it’s the States’ party.

An Early Obama Ad

Posted in 2008 Election, Humor, Politics on May 6th, 2013

Breaking News: One of Obama’s early advertisements for campaign staffers, both official and unofficial, has recently been uncovered and released to the public. It is believed to be from his 2008 presidential campaign but could date to his Senate days.

Most telling and predictive of the boy’s mindset, in my rarely humble opinion, is the combination of his describing himself as a genius and the simple fact that it uses a 900 number. :lol:

Fulfilling His Oath

Posted in 2008 Election, 2012 Election, Humor, Politics on February 10th, 2013

Most Americans feel that Barack Obama has willfully and repeatedly failed to fulfill his Oath of Office as POTUS. Many of them have cried out about the boy’s combined refusal to properly execute the Constitutional duties of his office and his refusal to abide by the Constitutional restrictions placed upon the office.

It is, perhaps, unfair to claim that Obama has refused to fulfill his Oath of Office. Both in 2009 and in 2013 Obama took his Oath behind closed doors, surrounded only by select members his coterie. Until now, no Americans have actually known what oath the boy swore.

I do solemnly swear to uphold race warfare, incompetence, corruption, gun running, the killing of federal officers, American Ambassadors, and taking away the civil rights of law-abiding citizens.

– Barack Hussein Obama
5th Assassinated POTUS (Predicted)

Whether he swore his oath upon the Bible, Qur’an, The Communist Manifesto, or The Audacity of Hope and whether he swore it to God, Allah, or his personal deity, Obama has kept his Oath of Office as he swore it. That, my fellow beleaguered Americans, is the problem.
