Skin In The Game

Consider how different things would have been if we’d somehow managed to limit the voting in the 2012 elections to only those with “skin in the game.” If that election had been contained to only those who actually pay federal income tax, it would have looked quite different.

This goes a long ways towards showing how worthless and destructive the warm body franchise is to America. It also goes an equally long ways towards showing exactly why the Democrats fight so viciously against anything that might limit voting privileges.

Limit voting to only taxpayers might not be the best way of ending the warm body franchise but, as the chart clearly shows, the system we have now is a case of taxation without real representation with all the consequences that implies.

The States’ Party

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.

They Deserve It

I admit that I’m suffering from a bit of Schadenfreude Listen or, for my fellow linguists out there: epicaricacy or delectatio morosa. I just can’t help sniggering at the Leftists who voted for Obama in 2012, knowing that his platform was based upon reaving even more wealth from the productive, being horrified and chagrined when they see their now reduced paychecks or read the new tax codes.

Got Capitalism? Not Quite So Much Anymore, Filth

The Liberals’ and Progressives’ pain is self-induced and it brings me great joy. They deserve it and a great deal more misery for their beliefs, choices, and actions. The only two thing that I wish and that would give me greater joy is if I could increase their pain while exempting Americans from it.

Sadly, while the Liberals and Progressives deserve the pain that they’re not suffering, American don’t but are subject to it as well.

Obama: The Sequel

Today is the day of Obama 2nd inauguration and, as such, is the official opening day of the boy’s latest theatrical release.

Obama - Mistaken 2
Obama: The Sequel – Mistaken 2

The only thing is that nobody is sure, as of yet, what genre this (im)morality play will be in: Black Comedy, Political Thriller, Zombie Apocalypse, or a gritty, streetwise remake of Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hyde with Obama in the starring role(s)?

Personally, I’m sort of hoping for a twisted remake – yes, another one! – of Red Dawn. The image of a young, White guy in a school jacket holding up Obama’s severed head and yelling, “Wolverines!” give me a warm feeling in my soul. 😉 Add three more Americans carrying the heads of the rest of the Obamas and I’d say the work deserved an Oscar!

Not So Fun Fact

Obama-illegal-immigrantsA not so fun fact of the recent 2012 Presidential Election is that Obama lost in every state that requires a photo ID to be produced before voting but narrowly “won” in several key states that did not require such ID. Conversely, Obama lost in every state that requires a photo ID to be produced before voting. That, combined with the plethora of other voting irregularities in the 2012 elections, does not look very good.

Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, and Pennsylvania total 66 electoral votes between them,don’t require voters to identify themselves, and have large population of unfranchised residents.

“Interestingly” the 66 66 electoral votes these states would, if added to Romneys total of 205 electoral votes, would have given him 271 electoral votes, enough votes to win even without Ohio or Florida Romney, two other states without voter ID requirements and which had serious discrepancies in their voting results.

The above are the facts of the matter. That is all that they are, facts. What conclusions one draws and what actions one takes based upon those conclusions is a personal moral choice.
