I am going to start this article with the disclaimer that I do not consider myself a Democrat or a Republican. If anything, I have been called a Libertarian, but I don’t agree with everything in their platform either. I basically believe that our forefathers had the right idea, and the constitution is a pretty good way to run a country. I believe the government should have as little to do with everyday life as possible. I believe in the separation of church and state, and that morality can not be legislated. That means if gays want to get married, let them. If women want abortions, that is their choice. I also believe that businesses and taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to pay for those choices. I believe the governments main priorities should be to keep our boarders secure, and our nation safe. I believe immigration helps our country, illegal immigration hurts it. I believe a strong military deterrent keeps us secure, but globalist imperialism makes us less secure. I believe the TSA, and NSA are traitors to our country, but local police departments are fundamentally good. I believe everyone has a not only a right, but a duty to be armed. I believe that over taxation doesn’t help anyone except politicians and their cronies.
I have also always believed that our system works. I believed that it isn’t our government that is failing, it is the lack of education about the issues amongst the population that is failing. After all, politicians are elected representatives. If they are failing to properly represent us, and we keep electing them, that is our problem isn’t it? However, the news has recently made me question that basic belief in our government.
Back in 2012 when President Obama was elected to his 2nd term, I was a bit shocked. I believed Obama would be a good president when he was elected in 2008, but I was quickly disappointed. I saw a man that campaigned on change, and then quickly fell in line with the globalist agenda of his predecessors. I saw a man that robbed and subjugated the people he was supposed to represent. I saw a president that was supposed to be the final nail in the coffin of American racism do more harm to race relations in America then any KKK rally or neo Nazi meeting ever could. I saw a failure of a president. But he got re-elected, and I couldn’t understand why. Was the populace that easily swayed by the propaganda machine?
After the election, I was talking politics with one of my friends, and they asked me “Do you think Hillary Clinton will be elected in 2016?”. My off the cuff remark haunts me today. I responded to the question by saying “The only way Hillary Clinton will every be elected president is if the Republicans are stupid enough to run Jeb Bush against her.” Now it is beginning to look like we will have a Hillary vs Jeb Election.
I am not saying Jeb Bush would be a horrible president. I was actually visiting Florida in the fall of 2004 when Jeb Bush was Governor of that state. Hurricane Ivan was preparing to strike the state and I saw Jeb Bush give a very good speech on television to the residents of Florida in preparation for the storm… then he gave the speech again… in Spanish. I remember remarking to someone at the time that I thought it was funny that Florida got the smart Bush, and the rest of the country got the dumb one…
That being said, the legacy left by Jebs brother George W Bush, along with the mainstream media spin against him that has gone on for over a decade, has, in my opinion, made any Bush unelectable. Even though Obamas presidency has in many ways vindicated GW Bush’s actions, the mainstream media has been able to spin it against him. Instead of reporting that Obama didn’t close Guantanamo because it was necessary to keep it open, they reported that his failure to live up to his election promise to close it was Bush’s fault. Instead of reporting that Obama’s re-engagement in both Iraq and Afghanistan showed justification for our original engagements there, they reported that the aggression was Bush’s fault. And the general population bought the propaganda hook, line and sinker. After eight years of having every failure of the Obama administration blamed on GW Bush, do you really think it will be hard to vilify his brother, Jeb, in the eyes of the brainwashed masses?
But maybe this is the plan. Recently, the Infowars website ran a story claiming that the Bilderberg group was endorsing Hillary Clinton for the 2016 presidential election. If this is the case, would it not make sense to run her against an unelectable opponent? Has this been the plan all along? Vilify the Bush name for over a decade so that Hillary will have an easy election. Is this how the globalist agenda works? Not by rigging elections in the traditional sense, but by running unelectable people against their candidate of choice? Is this proof that the mainstream media does the bidding of their globalist overlords? They are already starting to spin Jeb as “just another Bush”. John Stewart recently commented that with every Bush elected, you get a free war in Iraq. This seems to forget the fact that Obama just sent 450 more troops into Iraq. (This is after he sent 1,500 troops their last year). But that is Bush’s fault, isn’t it Mr Stewart…
“since you are all such good customers I’m going to redcue the cost of your daily meal by $20.” So now dinner for the ten only cost $80. The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the first four men were unaffected. They would still eat for free.But what about the other six — the paying customers? How could they divvy up the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his “fair share?”The six men realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would end up being *paid* to eat their meal.So the restaurant owner suggested that it would be fair to redcue each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.And so the fifth man paid nothing, the sixth pitched in $2, the seventh paid $5, the eighth paid $9, the ninth paid $12, leaving the tenth man with a bill of $52 instead of his earlier $59. Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to eat for free.But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. “I only got a dollar out of the $20,” declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth. “But he got $7!” “Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got seven times more than me!””That’s true!” shouted the seventh man. “Why should he get $7 back when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks!””Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison. “We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!”The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.The next night he didn’t show up for dinner, so the nine sat down and ate without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They were $52 short!And that is how federal taxes work. The top 10% pays 70% of taxes. Any tax cut will by definition mean the top 10% gets most of the tax cuts. Anyone with an IQ of 50 or higher can figure that out. Leftists can’t. Go figure.
Spot on with this write-up, I really think this website wants much more consideration. I?l most likely be once more to learn way more, thanks for that info.
I believe that the Bushes are fmtdauennally decent, service-minded people and I always voted for them given the alternatives available to me. But it is time that the Democrat-Imperial State is properly opposed. The Bushes are not the people for that job. I want a President who intends to flush the Democratic parasites from the bowels of the Federal bureaucracy. I want a President who intends to trim back not only the excesses of Obama, but take a chainsaw to the legacy programs of the Great Society and the New Deal.
You made some first rate factors there. I looked on the internet for the difficulty and located most individuals will associate with along with your website.
Howdy! This article could not be written any better!
Going through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
He continually kept preaching about this. I’ll forward this post to him.
Pretty sure he will have a great read. Thanks for sharing!
