The Politicians We Have Chosen Reflect Who We Are As A Nation

The American people have spoken.  It is estimated that approximately 6 billion dollars was spent on political campaigns in 2012, and we ended up exactly in the same place that we were before.  Barack Obama is still in the White House, the Democrats still have solid control of the U.S. Senate and the Republicans still have solid control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Clearly, the American people want more of the same, and that is really bad news.  The path that we have been on will only lead to unprecedented disaster, and now it is abundantly clear that there are not going to be any solutions to our problems on the national level.  Not that things would be that much different if we reversed things and gave Republicans control of the White House and the Senate and we gave Democrats control of the U.S. House of Representatives.  Over the past several decades, nothing has really seemed to get any better no matter what faces we have sent to Washington.  But this time there is really a feeling of “finality” to things.  The American people have made their choices, and those choices are going to have consequences.  There is no turning back now.  The politicians that we have chosen reflect who we are as a nation.  It is not just our leaders that have turned their backs on the U.S. Constitution and on the principles that this country was founded upon – the truth is that the majority of the American people have rejected them.  We have willingly chosen our destiny, and there are no more excuses.

What Barack Obama has pulled off is absolutely mind blowing.  First of all, I must acknowledge that the Obama campaign had the best “ground game” in the history of American politics.  Their ability to deliver their voters to the polls was absolutely amazing.  Yes, the election was close, but I thought it would be much closer.  The Obama “ground game” made a significant difference.

Having said that, it says a lot about who we are as a nation that the American people would willingly send Barack Obama back to the White House for a second term.  You could almost excuse the American people for having the wool pulled over their eyes the first time, but at this point American voters have had four years to evaluate Barack Obama and learn what he is all about.

Barack Obama, like many of our politicians, is a con man.  He just doesn’t have a few skeletons in his closet – he has a whole army of them.  Over the course of two presidential campaigns he has refused to release his school records, there are very serious irregularities concerning his Social Security number, and he has managed to keep vast stretches of his past a total secret to the American people.  Anyone applying for a decent job or trying to get into a decent school would have been required to disclose more background information than Barack Obama has revealed to the American people.  What Obama has pulled off is completely and totally absurd.  I truly believe that Barack Obama will someday be regarded as one of the greatest con men of all time.

But even setting all of that aside, the outrageous things that Barack Obama has publicly said and done should be more than enough for every American that loves the U.S. Constitution to reject him.  The truth is that no American should have ever cast a single vote for him for any political office under any circumstances.

And yet now he is headed for a second term in the White House, and now he will feel absolutely no accountability to the voters since he will not be running in 2016.  He can do whatever he wants over the next four years, and nobody can do anything about it.

Not that Mitt Romney would have been much different.  Out of all of the Republican candidates, the Republicans selected the candidate that was most similar to Barack Obama.  During primary season, in many of my articles I pleaded with the Republicans not to choose Mitt Romney.  I warned that large numbers of very conservative voters would refuse to support him in the general election.  I was horrified by how Romney treated Ron Paul and his supporters during the primaries.  It turns out that Romney desperately could have used their help in swing states that Romney barely lost like Ohio, Virginia and Florida.

In the end, Mitt Romney ran one of the most inept campaigns in modern American political history.  Except for his one brief shining moment during the first debate, Romney just seemed to keep falling flat on his face over and over.  He seemed to have absolutely no idea how to attack Obama’s track record, and he kept shifting positions every five minutes.  To be honest, his campaign was an embarrassment to the Republican Party.

I know that a lot of Republicans are mourning today, but things would not have been much different under a Romney administration.  Romney was perhaps the most liberal candidate the Republicans have ever nominated for president, and Obama and Romney were perhaps the two most similar candidates that we have ever seen run against each other on the national stage.

The fact that the Republicans picked Mitt Romney says a whole lot about the Republican Party just like the fact that the Democrats picked Barack Obama says a whole lot about who they are.

But let us not overlook the other choices that the American people made yesterday either.

The U.S. Senate has been an abysmal failure for years, and yet the American people just keep voting for more of the same.

If you can believe it, the U.S. Senate has not passed a budget in over 1,200 days.

In fact, the last time the U.S. Senate passed a budget, there was no such thing as an iPad.

But not only did the American people allow Democrats to keep control of the U.S. Senate, the Democrats actually gained a couple of extra seats, and several of the newly elected Senators are extremely liberal.

And keep in mind that all of the new Senators that were elected yesterday will not be up for re-election until 2018.

That is very frightening to think about.

The funny thing is that the American people also gave the Republicans very firm control of the U.S. House of Representatives once again.  It is almost as if they were saying that they want things to remain exactly the same as they are right now.

So we can definitely expect more gridlock in Washington.  And perhaps that is a small piece of good news to come out of all this.

If we can get our politicians fighting with each other so much that they can’t get anything done, perhaps they will have less of a chance of messing this country up even worse than it already is.

This election season was the last, best chance that the American people had to bring about changes on the national level.  Unfortunately, the Republicans, the Democrats and the American people all failed miserably in this regard.

As far as the economy is concerned (after all, this is a column about economics), we will continue to steamroll toward collapse at record speed.  It is now glaringly obvious that there will be no political solutions to our problems on the national level.

So you better brace for impact, because a crash is coming.

And I think we just got a preview of coming attractions.  The Dow was down by more than 300 points on Wednesday.

I wish that I could be more optimistic, but the truth is that there is no hope on the horizon on the national level.  The American people have spoken, and they have made their choices.

Now we all get to pay the price.

  • Rtype

    The entitlement crowd has spoken and now the responsible citizens have to pay up and support them. Please do not support this economy, let it die with Obama and his filthy minions.

    either way, we lose

  • WM

    Yes, the American people have spoken. They want socialism, though they have no idea of what they are asking. Its human nature to want things the easy way, and thats exactly what the 100+ million that are having their needs met have done by voting for obummer.

    It is very disappointing that there were virtually no comments on the previous post. Perhaps because there was Truth there and people don’t want to hear it. But more disapointing was the fact that more people did not write in and voice their disgust about the attitude today amongst the entitlement crowd.

    It was said in the previous post, lets wait and see how many white people/Romney supporters start rioting and burning down cities………..

    I work with a guy from Poland and he experienced socialism at its finest. He sees exactly where this nation is headed and it makes him sick how stupid and incompetant and lazy the “american people” are by voting for someone who will take care of there short term needs, but have no insight to the long term damage to freedom.

    he is the one who told me that these same fools have no idea of what they are asking for and after the damage is done beyond repair, it will be too late. Then they will be wining and crying and probably threatening riots again about the loss of freedom, but it will be too late. Try threatenening a riot under a socialist/communist system and see where that lands you.

    I wanted to personally thank the liberal, pro abortion, anti-gun, anti Constitution, anti Israel, pro socialist, pro government intervention, entitlement crowd, etc. that voted for obummer. Thanks for voting for “change” The America that I knew is gone forever.

    Thanks to the sheeple who just go through life saying they love freedom, but not getting too involved in the process to keep that freedom, either by being too busy, or not wanting to stick their neck out in sacrifice.

    Watch how far worse we are now after 4 years of obummer, and keep a look out at where we will be 4 years from now.

    America was the last real place on earth for freedom, and it has been thrown away. Welcome to the new america.

      Sorry but your country began to rot since its very beginning due to their heresy (protestantism) that laid the foundation for the vampire banks to come to life and finally seize the power in 1913. Whether you like it or not as Michael has said there is no real differences between any republican “electable” candidate and DEmocrat candidates. By the way don´t worry it will be Obama who will declare the war for Israel against its enemies and plunge even more your country into debt and possibly an economic collapse as a prize from God. Enjoy.

  • Jodi

    I wanted to like Mitt Romney but I don’t think he attacked Obama the way most people thought he would. The last debate was a disaster. People really crave answers on the Benghazi attacks and good luck now that Obama has been reelected. There is nobody that has a spine in congress. This case will get tucked under the carpet just like Fast and Furious. I do agree, the title of this article reflects who we are. We choose the candidate that promises free stuff over freedom. It’s very frightening and most of all very sad.

    I have to say, it was very difficult for me to hold back comments on FB the day after the elections. Most people were celebrating & I don’t think they have any idea what they were celebrating about. They have know idea what is coming. I have friends who think now that Romney has lost maybe this time Obama will listen. I am just shocked that anybody believes that. It’s very telling of how uninformed we are including the people who supported Romney. I assure you the mask will come off this president & they are not going to know what just happened.

    Good Luck Comrades!

    • Quercus454

      I agree. I had hoped that a Romney win would have at least given us some time to get a real viable 3rd party candidate for 2016. Now that BO has another 4 years, I wonder if we will even make it till then.

  • THERANDYGUY

    Your take on the Republicans picking (what you describe) as the “most liberal candidate” is flatly opposite of the MSM’s characterization of the Republican party as “extremely conservative” as a reason for the loss. The truth is the parasites won: The federal government will become bigger, more intrusive, and more dictatorial over the next four years. There is no turning back, we have passed the point of no return. I will leave the Biblical stuff to others, as I’m sure they will feel the need to weigh in with their opinion. Our nation is about to undergo a change we have never been through before, and many people (myself, among them) will not follow willingly to dictates of some government minion.

  • CannotBelieveIt

    This election was the point of no return. Now its too late — the American people by majority now are not longer “American” in the classical Constutional mentality of Americans. There is no going back. Newer generations of Americans are now being trained to be liberal social democrats, to think in opposition to the ideals of the Constitution, and by consequence, the Natural and Divine Laws.
    The USA now is socialist (New Left 1960s version). Officially we can say for sure, on November 6, 2012, the USA turned socialist with absolutely no remaining doubts.

  • Tim

    Very, very well said. When I got up Wednesday morning and learned that Obama had been re-elected, I was shocked. I couldn’t believe that the American people would put Obama back in office after the disastrous results of his first term. It’s not that I feel that Romney would be much better as President. I didn’t vote because there wasn’t anyone that I could vote for.

    Sadly, I believe we have passed the point of no return. The greatest nation in the history of the world has been destroyed from within.

    • Laurus

      I am sorry, but you did vote. Your non-vote among many others like you gave us four more years of Obama.

      Well, Tim. If you didn’t vote, you voted for four more years of Obama. Enjoy $8 gasoline. You deserve it.

    We’ve reached the tipping point, where the takers outnumber the makers. God help us.

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”

      Time will tell. I actually hope you’re right, and the rest of us reading this are paranoid, conspiracy-theory head cases. I mean that with all sincerity, because in this case I’d rather be crazy than right.

      I must say, however, this debt is staggering. 16 trillion is a number almost too large to comprehend. I believe we are in the “Wal Mart” phase. You’ve no doubt heard the stories of Wal Mart moving into a small town. The small businesses dry up. Then, Wal Mart leaves, and the town has nothing — not even the small businesses that sustained it before Wal Mart got there. This is not an assualt on Wally World, by the way — I just use it as an analogy (although I don’t shop there). I think with our $16 trillion debt, we are still in the phase when Wally World is alive and well. When our proverbial Wal Mart leaves town, that’s when I fear what will happen next. I don’t know when that will be or what the catalyst will be, but I worry about it.

      Again, if your theory is correct, that will never happen and this $16 T means nothing. Maybe you’re right. I hope you’re right.

    It’s high time for the GOPers (congresspeople) to stop playing that “let’s ged rid of Obama” game by saying no to everything that comes along. They lost this one. It’s now time to make a deal. It’s called compromise — it’s what gets things done.

    Now get to work you lazy house GOPers or risk being called obstructionist “Republibums”.

      Just what have they said no to? Boehner signed off on everthing Obama wanted on the budget and then Obama cancelled the deal. You really ned to get away from the childish hero worship or at least find someone who deserves it.

    We have gone around the circle again and we’re going to try it again because we have lost our sanity as a nation.

    Many comments are being made about numbers that don’t make sense. If they don’t make sense somebody probably changed them.

    Check out some YouTube videos. It’s very interesting how a voting machine can be changed to register a vote for “A” as a vote for “B” using a screw driver and an allen wrench. (Link posted in the previous article)

    There is a fox in the hen house and he is now locked in, to be held accountable, and subject to impeachment for his crimes. Benghazi is not forgotten among many other issues as mentioned above.

    • MeMadMax

      Impeachment wont happen, it requires a congress to do it…

      And I don’t think that will happen….

  • David

    Michael you have every reason for being pessimistic. Neither party will solve our issues as a country. The ultimate game here is power. Total power corrupts totally. Republican or Democrat it does not make a difference. I truely believe the plan is to destroy this countries economy so it can be rebuilt, and I personally am waiting for it to happen. We have no political will from either party nor political leadership to solve the enormous issues facing this country. Let it collapse and then rebuild. When there is nothing left the powerful will leave or fall and then we can start over. The sooner we get it over with the sooner we can start to rebuild. For those Republicans who are mourning their candidates loss, keep in mind that the “angry white vote” won’t get it done anymore. There are not enough of you left to make up a majority. Don’t fight it, realize it.

  • Bill

    very frustrating to spend time on a comment, submit it, and see it vanish—–?

    Yeah I think it’s funny that mainstream Republicans complain how the party lost the campaign because of foolish people like me who voted according to morality and sound values (aka Ron Paul). They suggest we needed to shrug off our infatuation for Dr. Paul and just voted for Romney to get Obama out.

    I’ve got news for mainstream Republicans:

    Maybe next time you can nominate an outstanding statesman for candidate such as Ron Paul and you will have no trouble collecting my vote for your party!

  • Big Dick

    All you have to do is look at who voted for Obama. First there is all the Spanish and African Americans that desperately want to keep Obamacare as they have no insurance and most of them are already wards of the government in some way. next you have the under 30 crowd that are too involved in their social technology to even know what the economy is about or even a job as a huge number of them are still in school and idealistic fodder for the government lies. Then you finally have the rest of the unemployed, disabled, welfare folk that want to keep the only dollars flowing that are their only source of income. Yes the Democrats were smart and bussed all of these folks to the polls and gave them food vouchers for their efforts, but the fact is the deck is stacked against the working populace for years to come. Better get ready for the upcomming war as gun sales have gone thru the roof and Obama is buying millions of hollow point bullets for all of the agencys.

    “The present is a time of overwhelming interest to all living. Rulers and statesmen, men who occupy positions of trust and authority, thinking men and women of all classes, have their attention fixed upon the events taking place about us. They are watching the relations that exist among the nations. They observe the intensity that is taking possession of every earthly element and they recognize that something great and decisive is about to take place—that the world is on the verge of a stupendous crisis.” {Last Day Events, pg.11—E.G.White 1914}

    “We are living in the time of the end. The fast-fulfilling signs of the times declare that the coming of Christ is near at hand. The days in which we live are solemn and important. The Spirit of God is gradually but surely being withdrawn from the earth. Plagues and judgments are already falling upon the despisers of the grace of God. The calamities by land and sea, the unsettled state of society, the alarms of war, are portentous. They forecast approaching events of the greatest magnitude. The agencies of evil are combining their forces and consolidating. They are strengthening for the last great crisis. Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones. The condition of things in the world shows that troublous times are right upon us. The daily papers are full of indications of a terrible conflict in the near future. Bold robberies are of frequent occurrence. Strikes are common. Thefts and murders are committed on every hand. Men possessed of demons are taking the lives of men, women, and little children. Men have become infatuated with vice, and every species of evil prevails. The enemy has succeeded in perverting justice and in filling men’s hearts with the desire for selfish gain….
    There are not many, even among educators and statesmen, who comprehend the causes that underlie the present state of society. Those who hold the reins of government are not able to solve the problem of moral corruption, poverty, pauperism, and increasing crime. They are struggling in vain to place business operations on a more secure basis. If men would give more heed to the teaching of God’s word, they would find a solution of the problems that perplex them. The Scriptures describe the condition of the world just before Christ’s second coming. Of the men who by robbery and extortion are amassing great riches, it is written: “Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the laborers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.” James 5:3-6. But who reads the warnings given by the fast-fulfilling signs of the times? What impression is made upon worldlings? What change is seen in their attitude? No more than was seen in the attitude of the inhabitants of the Noachian world. Absorbed in worldly business and pleasure, the antediluvians “knew not until the Flood came, and took them all away.” Matthew 24:39. They had heaven-sent warnings, but they refused to listen. And today the world, utterly regardless of the warning voice of God, is hurrying on to eternal ruin. The world is stirred with the spirit of war. The prophecy of the eleventh chapter of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Soon the scenes of trouble spoken of in the prophecies will take place. “Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof…. Because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate…. The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.” Isaiah 24:1-8.” {Testimonies vol.9, pg. 11-15…E.G.White}

    I doubt this really means much about Americans as a whole. There’s a poll out (link at Breitbart) that underscores that people don’t trust politicians on either side of the aisle, and that big government = corruption. But what we yet lack is a dialogue of American people (NOT media) about what we can do about that. That is the entire reason behind the Tea Party movement. Though much misrepresented by the media and politicians alike, the Tea Party movement is anti-Establishment of both parties. Why? The corruption and reckless spending and rising deficits of which politicians of both sides are guilty. That’s why the media/Establishment so malign them.

    This a case of the Zombie generation . We are being programmed and manipulated to the point we don’t make our own decisions , people who work are being worked so hard and long they don’t have time to see outside there little world to know who is who and who is doing what, just as long as there selfish life is not broken yet. We are now like horses with blinders on with a jockey yanking our necks and whipping us to go faster and faster. Say goodbye to thinking for yourself we are now under a dictatorship called democracy.

    Look at the all these news channels with there expert analyst calling the arguing back and forth and in the end they don’t care about the facts it’s there way or not. And in the end each only have a 50/50 chance of being right. WoW !!! weatherman have a better record then them now.

    Whether it’s a vote of 6 million or a jury of 12 the outcome is usually decided by who has the most money to pay for there team and can overwhelm the opposition.

    As far as i can see the truth is “Money Talks” and seems there is no way it will ever change as Money=Power.

    Look at the bright side Michael. You will have lots and lots of material to write about in the future on both The End of the American Dream and The Economic Collapse Blog.

  • Washington

    I believe I can help somewhat.

    I know how you feel. The reelection of President Obama and continued Democratic control of the Senate means we have serious challenges ahead of us.

    But I’m writing to offer you real hope. Since this grassroots movement for freedom began just a few years ago, we’ve accomplished so much.

    In 2010, we elected a massive freshmen class of principled conservatives in the House of Representatives. In 2012, we’ve expanded that caucus by defeating numerous Democratic incumbents and replacing them with conservative leaders like Jackie Walorski of Indiana, Andy Barr of Kentucky, Mark Meadows of North Carolina, and more.

    We also elected Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and a new fiscally conservative core in the Senate two years ago. This election, we’ve expanded their ranks with newly-minted Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Deb Fischer of Nebraska, and Jeff Flake of Arizona.

    We drove the national political conversation on our issues of constitutionally limited government, free markets, and individual liberty. Candidates who ran on and articulated our message not only created a clear choice for voters but were overwhelmingly victorious in this election.

    That is the power of our ideas and our movement.We must never give up. We must never stop fighting. America’s future depends on it.

      You can totally say that again!!

  • Jake

    I have only read the title, and yes, I am not arguing that a lot of people voted for Obama and a lot of people voted for Romney, but day after day I keep reading websites and comments that say, people of this nation voted in one or the other. Please please realize that vote fraud is real, and also realize that the election totals are probably not even close to the actual votes cast. Yes our nation’s people (the masses) are dumbed down, and a lot of these same people think there is a difference between the two parties, but there is no real difference, and it wouldn’t have mattered who won between the 2 major parties. These two candidates were picked for us to choose from. Again, the vote total doesn’t mean anything, it is so far from the truth of the actual vote cast! Fraud, Fraud, Fraud, once people ACTUALLY believe this, they wouldn’t even make a title like that is at the top of this article. This is actually a conspiracy and it is true. Prop 37, I have read comment after comment about “how could Californian’s vote that down”, really?! It is very easy to change the votes, they have been doing it since at least the elections in 2000. Voting is a total illusion of choice, you have a choice to vote for whomever you want, but once the vote is input into the voting machine, there is only 2 outcomes, rep or dem, which is really no choice, same agenda, same economics, same wars, same same same. I know this sight probably knows all of this, but I think people just literally don’t think it is actually true, if so, again, a title, like this one, wouldn’t even be written. :)

    I could not have said it better thank you!!!in October there was a debate and my 22 year old daughter told me this this debate was allowed on the tv which the elite usually don’t allow this plus Alex jones and paster Lindsey Williams have a video on the same subject was to get the views of the American people to see where we stand morally and are interest well they saw the elite a country with no morals only violence on there minds and Obama had huge amounts of votes from gay couples and people only interested in there own selflessness so we got what we deserved and we are all dearly going to pay for this you can be imprisioned for nothing you are a terrorist all and everyone the elite are going to slam this country and everyone in it because people just don’t care.

    Though I come from the opposite side of the American political spectrum (the left) I like to read your columns. You put out some solid information and you don’t sound like an arrogant bastard when you do it. In fact, you talk as if you were a neighbor. Thanks for that.

    I agree with what you’ve said here – but wonder if the reason we don’t want to change is because we fear things being different. Do we think that if we just charge at the wall with our head down and hit it just a bit harder it will fall?

    For my part, I plan to start talking with neighbors in my urban area and see if we can come up with a disaster plan, something so that when a Sandy or a Katrina happens here we can try and work together as opposed to turning cave man and clouting each other. Any thoughts, columns or links you share on this approach would be welcomed.

I was picking the lesser of the two evils….Will ammo up, prep up, wind and solar up (electric will become impossible for some), and offer encouragement to all those around me. My prayers will be more heartfelt, and I am determined to be the Best person with integrity that I can be. Many around us know things are askew…keep educating and encouraging, even though it may seem useless at times. We need to be stronger and more like our forefathers than ever. Blessings to all.

    At least Romney has God for guidance and that is everything unless you are a worthless athiest or agnostic, as for barack obama and uneducated supporters, America has fallen asleep and has not done their research or contain the wisdome to recognise just who the better man really is. I am ashamed to live on the united states of American soil among people of this begraded class and Obama has contributed the last four years in lowering these citizens to such a low class, not counting that this USA is on the Sodom and Gomhorra list just because he wanted votes from such minorities as gays and also supporting abortion. Unrepentant sin leads to calamity’s, and repeat sin leads to exposure..

  • REED RICHARDS

    Mikey, Mikey, Mikey,

    I AM NOT A REPUBLCAN, OR A DEMOCRAT, OR A LIBERAL, OR A CONSERVATIVE. THESE IDIOTIC LABELS MEAN NOTHING AND ARE THE PRIMARY REASON WHY PEOPLE DON’T THINK IN AMERIKA TODAY:

    Either you are a closet republican fraud, (which I believe is very much the case), or you have the most serious case of schizophrenia ever recorded in human history. You whine, moan, and complain about the people and the politicians and how both the democrat and republican parties are bad, but in the next breath and out of the other side of your mouth you speak in the langauge which promotes its dangerous and destructive fake left vs right paradigm. You keep calling Obama and Romney “liberals” when in fact they are no such thing. Especially given the fact that Obama has carried out, and Mittens Romney agreed with, every murderous, economy busting and U.S. Constitution smashing Bush-era foreign policy known to man. And I can’t recall G W Bush ever being called a “liberal”.

    If you truly wish to destroy the fake left vs right paradigm, you first must stop speaking in its langauge. Knowing that most people who vote for the two parties don’t have two brain cells to rub together, constantly throwing the words liberal, conservative, and other buzzwords and catchphrases only reinforces the straightjacket in the primitive minds of the people. Like a dog to a whistle, whenever they hear these buzzwords and catchphrases, they immediately flock toward the party that is most associated with this stuff.

    It’s time for a new political langauge that speaks to the intellect and not the lizard brain in people. Until that happens, everyone will get more of the same until collapse. Or is that your goal, total collapse?

    • Reality

      No, he’s not black. He’s equally white.

  • DaytoDay

    Let’s not forget, this was also the first time in history where the outcome wasn’t based solely on the white vote…

    Romney got 59% of white votes, Obama got 39%… Conversely, Obama got 93% of the black vote, 73% of the Hispanic and 74% of the Asian votes…So, for the first time in US history, minorities decided the election…

    I also think this was a very racially motivated election on both sides (Whites voted for whites and blacks voted for blacks)

  • Thomas

    I to was as much disapointed with the American people, as I was the outcome of the election. But as I watched the election unfold, it all started to make sense. Out with the old…and in with the new.

    I am part of the old. The old that believes good Christian morals are a good thing. The old that believes common sense can be as valuable as any college education. The old that believes that what you do is, for the most part, your business. And that what I do is mine. No need to get involved when it doesn’t concern you. Of coarse there are exceptions.

    The old that will agree to disagree and not try to force my will on others. The old that believes that you have to EARN respect and that you have to WORK to make a living. Not sit around playing video games until you are in your 30’s.

    The old that still believes that freedom isn’t free. That the debt of my freedom has been paid in blood.

    As I watched the people that were celebrating Obama’s vistory. I couldn’t help but notice that most were young people. What the media called college educated. That they were from states that are very different than my Sweet Home Alabama.

    The old that made this country great is forever gone. And soon I will be also. This is not “My” America anymore…it’s theirs.

    p I agree, and on top of that our ongoing moral decay was evident in the state votes for gay marrage and pot. Our children and grandchildren are searching for those role models who show them how to attain a better life and I wonder what they see? Are we showing them how to prepare by learning life skills,financial responsibility and how to be mentally tough? Times may get tougher a lot sooner than we thought.

The election of this man has just made that task a million times worse. Good luck unemployed and to those struggling to survive, your life is about to get alot worse. You can thank your local obama voter for that.

  • pavan

    I agree with everything you said. The people made their choice, now we all have to live with it. The Feds might as well put the printing presses into overdrive and spend like there is no tomorrow. Oh wait, they’ve already done that. Well, they can pick up the pace on taxes and regulations to finish off the few remaining jobs. They can start doing full cavity searches at airports and at random traffic stops. They can start VAT taxes and take away all guns. What about a national security force to search houses at random. The people have spoken and they want all of these things. Time’s a wastin. The government needs to get to work and get bigger. Much bigger. That’s what the people have asked for.

  • Barn Cat

    That’s partially true but the Republican Party has turned its back on the conservative, pro-life wing. The Republican Party wants to go almost as far left as the Democratic Party. If the Democrats said they were for all private property being confiscated the Republicans would say they’re for MOST property, just not all.

  • Georgiaboy61

    “Fool me once, shame on you…. fool me twice, shame on me” The American people, especially those who voted for Obama, are going to learn the truth of the old aphorism the hard way. For, while the denizens of the left may be able to deny political reality, they will find actual reality much tougher to dismiss out of hand. It has a way of not being denied; it has a way of rising up and slapping in the face those who refuse to heed its warnings. The vast leftist welfare state model on which Obama is banking is in existential crisis; it must soon collapse under the weight of its lies and trillions in debt that cannot be paid. The mathematics are unambiguous and cannot be denied. Our current situation is unsustainable. When the whole corrupt house of cards collapses, Obama won’t be able to blame George Bush. As for those who voted for Obama, enjoy the ride… it is about the get a lot rougher. Just remember, you asked for it!

  • Dirty Dave

    Your absolutely right Michael….This is exactly what Americans want. We want to keep our deficit spending, corporate welfare,wasteful social programs,almost a trillion dollar a year military spending which keeps so many contractors employed, outrageous salaries and benefits of public employees and wars we cannot win. Americans are so many generations removed from any hardships, that we no longer know or understand what “living within our means” is and isn’t. It is really sad to see so many of us who are uneducated,ignorant and totally brainwashed by our mainstream media.

  • jaxon64

    Michael, as you’ve said before, the coming economic collapse most likely will not be a giant calamatous event. Instead it will be a series of events and sliding downhill.

    –Some of the silliest and truest cliches I have ever heard are..

    –” you keep doing the same thing, expect the same results”
    –and ” if nothing changes evrything will stay the same”

    These may seem obvious and ridiculous on the surface but deep wisdom runs under the surface. So what can we expect in the next 4 years? Obviously much of the same as the past 4 years.

    1.) Another 5 trillion or more will be added to the debt in efforts to keep the big tumble from occuring.

    2.) Gasoline prices rose nearly 100% since Jan 2009 and another 100% increase in the national average for gas would put it at around $7 a gallon by 2016.

    3.) Health care costs have risen by an avg of 23% nationally ( my own from $105 per week to $135 per week) while at the same time, waits for appts are longer and quality and staffing has dropped. I expect a possible cascade of quality care deterioration but AT THE LEAST we will see another 20 to 30% increase in private insurance costs, a veritable explosion of new Medicare and Medicaide recipients and continuing decreases in staffing, drug research and explosion in denials of services.

    4.) Energy costs will necessarily have to skyrocket…quoted by the annointed one himself so I believe we ain’t seen nothing yet here…worst case scenario might even see the introduction of carbon credits or energy rationing.

    5.) Food prices for primary staples: eggs, milk, cheese, rice/grains, chicken/beef and other meats- the price for food staples has increased some 48% since 2008 and the full brunt of last summer’s record drought has not even hit yet–expect more of the same–another 50%+ rise in feeding your family. Worst case scenario?..A second or third straight year of drought and we may be talking 100% increase in food costs here at home and starvation/famine on a global level.

    6.) Trade imbalance– China is creaming us with their unfair trade practices and “globalization” overall is undermining American manufacturing. Expect more factories to close as Obama pushes forward with the Pacific rim version of NAFTA.

    7.) Wars– Bush got us involved in Iraq and Afghanistan after the 9/11 debacle. Obama continued these petro-dollar protecting ventures and has also been blasting the citizens in Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan..expect more of the same as we will be involved in helping the Muslim Brotherhood gain more power in the Middle East–maybe a NATO Syrian involvement, maybe a surgical strike on Iran. Worst case scenario, maybe an all out battle over the middl east as China and the USSR could get involved…this is still the world’s greatest powder keg.

    8.) Unemployment…this will rise or they will invent new and more clever ways to define Unemployed. Currently unemployed no longer means “not working” or even “unable to find gainful employment”. A recent study showed that if the exact same criteria were used today to define an unemployed person as were used during the great depression- Our current unemployment rate for 2012 would be at a higher level/% THAN ANY YEAR OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION.

    9.) Our government will continue to spend ridiculously. Not only money it does not have, massive amounts for entitlements that people have not earned but also treating the politicos like royalty. Expect Obama to play over 100 days of golf and Michelle to spend at least a billion on vacations and her entourage.

    10.) America will continue to be “knocked down a peg” by this president–he will deny American exceptionalism, he will continue his beliefs that American success and achievment was done at the expense of others. He will try and embarass, demean and delete our proud history.

    11.) The Constitution may not survive. Enough executive orders are now in place as “law” that the authority of the constitution is almost non-existant. If you still actually believe you have liberty in America you haven’t been paying attention. Spied on, jailed without cause, molested without suspicion, naked imaging, property “ownership” is a myth, freedom of politically correct speech maybe, Christian beliefs may be criminalized soon and people who believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God may be jailed for intolerance or hate speech.

    12.) Food stamp dependence increased from 32 million people to 47 million people…a nearly 50% increase–another 50% over the next 4 years places us at roughly 70 million, or 1 in 5 Americans will not be able to feed themselves without govt assistance by 2016.

    I could go on and on but you get the point…we will “keep getting what we’re getting” since we voted to have TPTB to keep doin what they’re doin..

    The definition of insanity, to keep making the same mistakes and expecting different results…yep, a gradual slide.

    PS: Do you actually think we’ll see a budget done in THIS 4 years by Congress and the Pres?..for your answer, see above. Do you think they’ll keep having special sessions to extend govt spending like they did repeatedly over the past 4 years?..again, nothing changes and things will stay the same.

    Will inflation, unemployment and the deficit(s) increase by the same amounts or the same percentages?

  • David M.

    As I told my wife and agree with you, we have two choices this year for president. Both being poison for the nation. One is fast acting, the other time released, but both will kill. Thank you Michael for telling the truth.

    Amen to what you just said, Michael! Why, oh why, do these brain dead Republicans keep nominating these RINO’s that lose?!?! First Dole, then McCain, now Romney. To all you morons (are you listening Gary2 & your ilk) who voted for B.O. and have a job, you had better start saving up your money because you will soon be unemployed! The America that I grew up in in the 1950’s &1960’s is finished. It is dead. The majority of my fellow Americans no longer care about values, morality, ethics, or the Constitution. How sad. Michael, what are the people who want to be slaves to the government going to do when there is no money left for their benefits??? How do you put it “It aint going to be pretty”. I feel like somebody reared back and kicked me in the gut. I grieve for the America I once knew

  • Islandgirl

    I am still not sure that the American people really have spoken. I think our system is so corrupt that I do not even believe the voting system is fair or legitimate anymore. How do we know that they didn’t make it possible for Obama to win and the rest of all of the liberals that gone in there. I would not put it past them if it was set up. I know there is a lot of people that still fell for the lies of Obama. I know some, but I cannot believe that there are more of them than the rest of us that have our eyes open to what is going on…maybe I am wrong, but I have been suspecting that they have had it fixed somehow. I think that is how corupt and bad it is now. Also, if everyone remembers Obama telling the Russian leader that he would have more flexibility after the election. Like he knew he was going to win. That defines how confident he was that it would be him in office again after the election. Did he know something we didn’t?

    I also found it interesting that just after the election they were so quick to go after the UN treaty now again too. I honestly thought that would be the first thing they go after. They just couldn’t wait until the election was over, so now we have to worry about our 2nd amendment rights being taken away. They say we have nothing to worry about with that. Like we really believe them? We are going to lose our freedoms over the next four years. It’s hard to accept that this is what we face.

  • Note from Idaho

    Obama started buying this election with the 2009 stimulus bill, $800 plus billion piled upon favored districts and those vunerable to takeover by his corrupt style of politics. Informed citizens have heard and read the abuses of our borrowed/printed/tax dollars and recognize corruption,waste and fraud. Nothing happened. Con man is right.

    Personally I am sick of the Ron Paul team, unquestioning devotion to Ron Paul is no different than unquestioning devotion to Barrack Obama. Ron Paul is a career politician, truth hurts. Check his spending record. Check who donates to him.

    This election was too big and consequences too severe to make a Ron Paul point.

    Mitt Romney is a decent man, those of us who voted for him also recognized he is also a politician, we didn’t lie to ourselves about that. His emphasis on small business which would have created jobs here in the USA was truthful. Large cap/global companies have options with where they employ people. Recognizing and promoting small business here in this country counters the loss of jobs by global companies. You think they will create jobs here in the USA with Obama’s taxes,regulations and repression? Small business will bear the burden of Obamacare.

    As a small business owner, energy is a non-discretionary expense, Romney recognized that, we are now faced with more green fantasies by the Obama team. One of the simple facts that has allowed American growth is affordable energy. Check gas/diesel prices. Obama war on coal is more than campaign talk, his EPA will regulate them into bankruptcy.

    Do you honestly think Romney could have gotten anywhere near the votes he did if he came out and said, Social Security/Medicare/Medicaid is broke your going to have to endure cuts, that is the truth. To implement that truth requires a third party, a commission such as Reagan formed and used to come back with the ugly truth after one is elected. Remember Obama promised to form such a commission and never did, nor did he take the ugly truth of his deficit commission.

    Furthermore who do you want in charge with what is a certain collapse? A shady character who after four years as president we don’t even know some basics facts
    of their life, education,associates or true intentions. From time to time Obama has slipped off his teleprompter, those paying attention recognized reality and the traits of a Marxist. Collapse would have ocurred under Romney, economic mathematics nearly guarantee that in the next few years. However under a Romney administration we may have been able to sleep at night.

    Romney didn’t have a magic wand to fix this country, Obama won’t let a crisis go to waste.

    What lies ahead for this country mildly put, is a very unpleasant period of history.

    Prepare and pray folks…..

    I wonder what the jobs & stock market impact will be from this election? I know lots of businesses that plan to close their doors the end of this year because 2013 legal & tax changes(lucky year?) will make profitability difficult or impossible for many small companies. Several are already cutting back to less than 50 employees.

    The only thing I see keeping us going is that we are still one of the more stable countries in the world and cash will keep flowing into our financial markets.Just please don’t tell any Europeans that the U.S. national debt load per person is higher than Greece. Shhhh. Thanks Michael for your great articles, especially this one.

        So you think the purpose of having a business is to lose money? many business owners took on massive debt to keep their doors open and people employed. They finally see that it is pointless as there is no way they can ever make ends meet.

      • http://www.survivalschool.us Jay

        NO PROFITS. NO TAX REVENUE. NO NANNY STATE.

        A business owner has 2 options: reduce employees partially or go out of business completely. Many business owners are already squeezing their home budget to nothing while government largess grows.
        Funny thing, profits benefit people. Profits incentivize businesses to maximize their value to customer through innovation and hard work while managing costs – this trigger is not present in federal government. Even BIG OIL profits fund our citizens retirement.
        I wonder what entitlement program will be bled dry first in 2013? Even Greece is cutting back now.

  • Wake up

    The 2012 elections are over and the American people have once again spoken. Americans could have fired Obama in the 2012 presidential election but instead they have chosen a dictator that will bring more division and the fall of this nation within grasp. I am not saying that Romney would have turned things around in America, but there is one thing that is for certain, the lying sociopath in office that was just re-elected will try to finish the evil agenda that he was groomed for.
    It is amazing that the election was even close with all the deception and failed economic policy. That just shows how Americans have become a nation of non thinkers that just believe whatever they are fed by the socialist and elitist controlled main stream media.
    When you are heading for a cliff, if the driver can’t or won’t change directions you will still crash on the rocks below. We are heading for an economic cliff among other dangers but most Americans have blinders on. Removing Obama from the presidential office was only the first political step of many that should have be taken to save this nation, but that didn’t happen.
    Americans had a choice although not much of one and they have chosen to retain a budding socialist dictator. What the majority wants is what they will get. If you really do not know what you are voting for, you probably should not be voting at all. If you actually believed in the American system, you certainly would not be voting for those that will put you under elitist controlled world socialism and the tyranny that this will bring.
    Let me just leave you with some food for thought with a few of my own findings:
    I find the morals of many Americans become very revealing when they still choose to buy into the obvious lies and the hypocrisy of the Obama administration. When Obama ran in 2008, he said that his administration would be the most open and honest administration. What we got instead was the most corrupt, dishonest, closed administration in American history and anyone with an ounce of “Gray Matter” between their ears should realize that.
    I find it bedeviling that there is overwhelming silence from the pulpits of this nation about the evils of continuing the course that Obama is taking this nation. Do they really think they will have the free speech to preach the true gospel under politically correct tyranny? Maybe they do not even care since many of them do not even preach the gospel now? I think the vast majority of pastors already care more about offending one black sheep in their pews than keeping their whole flock out of the mouth of wolves. These shepherds are sacrificing their sheep on the altar of political correctness.
    I find it perplexing that people who want cheap energy, vote for people who always prevent cheap energy sources from being developed.
    I find it puzzling when people who expect government social benefits then vote for politicians that will destroy our free enterprise system and our economy that makes those social benefits possible.
    I find it to be the height of hypocrisy when the people who took an oath to uphold the Constitution become the very ones that carry out the tyranny that our Constitution was supposed to prevent.
    I find it to be insane that people who cannot find good jobs will vote for politicians that will insure that they will never have good jobs.
    I find it baffling that religious Americans that claim to believe that the church speaks for God on earth would still vote for a President that dictates immorality to their church.
    I find it to be disturbing when blacks and even Christian blacks that do not want to be judged by the color of their skin now vote for candidates based on the color of their skin. Apparently racism is alive and well in black Christian America.
    I find it unconstitutional that private banks would just print money and then use those dollars to buy up American debt. This will have the same effect on our nation as massive counterfeiting. It will weaken the dollar and if it they continue to buy up real estate notes they will eventually have financial control over most real estate in this country.
    I find it to be a derangement syndrome when people who always talk about their ancestors slavery vote for a national party that keeps them under government bondage and brainwashed their race into aborting most of their future children.
    I find it to be self-destructive when those that became citizens of America legally, vote for politicians who will allow illegals to come in to underbid their jobs and ruin their ethnic neighborhoods with gangs and drug traffickers.
    I find it to be a conspiracy when a President can conceal his Marxist past and the Media will not investigate the truth about his past but will knowingly promulgate propaganda and disinformation.
    I find it unimaginable that a President would just leave four men behind to be murdered by terrorists in Libya when it was in the power of our military to save them. Those willing to help were ordered to stand down by the highest levels of our government. Then for weeks the American people were lied to about what happened in Libya and the mainstream media just enabled the lies. It seems a high crime was committed but they are doing their best to cover it up.
    I find that Americans that are enabling their own destruction must be suicidal. Now, in this election, we are about to find out if the suicidal have become the majority. Will this Obama administration get a blank check to murder this nation by Americans?
    It saddens me to realize that abortion, as a form of birth control, not in cases of the woman’s health or the act of a crime, but for the sole purpose of being a form of birth control, has robbed the country of a clearer path to economic well being and stability. I am amazed that about half of the citizens in this country are OK with this, and that half the country feels that this issue is of greater importance than the well being of the nation as a whole.
    After thinking about all this, why should Americans expect anything better than what the majority voted for on November 6th?

      “I find it perplexing that people who want cheap energy, vote for people who always prevent cheap energy sources from being developed.”

      what cheap energy???

      “I find it to be the height of hypocrisy when the people who took an oath to uphold the Constitution become the very ones that carry out the tyranny that our Constitution was supposed to prevent.”

      oh, so you opposed Bush also?

      “I find it to be disturbing when blacks and even Christian blacks that do not want to be judged by the color of their skin now vote for candidates based on the color of their skin. Apparently racism is alive and well in black Christian America.”

      and whites don’t vote for candidates based on the color of their skin?

      “It saddens me to realize that abortion, as a form of birth control, not in cases of the woman’s health or the act of a crime, but for the sole purpose of being a form of birth control, has robbed the country of a clearer path to economic well being and stability.”

      in case you haven’t noticed we have a major unemployment problem. and btw, how many unwanted babies have YOU adopted?

    I do agree and feel dismay at the choices that the American public makes, but on the other hand they are in over their heads. They are in a cultural war, but only one side knows that it is fighting. It is absurd when people here say that Obama ruined the economy. No president has that much power! You don’t take a healthy economy and culture, and ruin it with a new president.

    Our economy and culture has been going down for at least two or three decades, and of course the roots go back further than that. It is two or three decades ago that it began gaining speed downhill.

    Why do all the knee jerk Republicans not remember that it was before Obama took office that we had a housing bubble, a collapsing economy, multiple FRAUDULENT and CRIMINAL activities by the highest financial institutions, and an unemployment crisis! Were they thinking the president has some sort of dictatorial and magical power over something as big as the American economy? It is absurd!

    Everything would have been great if we had elected McCain? Really?

    But the American people have had some choices, if they were less gullible and a little more intellectually curious. They could have learned more about Ron Paul. But I believe that Ron Paul could easily have won the presidency if not for the fact that the real powers in America don’t want anyone other than the tweedledum and tweedeldee candidates to get in. Despite being ignored and marginalized by the mainstream media, he did incredibly well. In the end, people lost their nerve because they don’t want to waste their votes.

    We even had Ross Perot. Remember him? He warned us what would happen to our jobs under NAFTA. Why didn’t people vote for him?
    I am listening to an audio book by Peter Schiff, called The Real Crash. This is quite an eye opener. Despite I’m very liberal and he is conservative, he has taught me quite a lot and I have seen things in a new way. He predicted all this back in 2006. It has nothing to do with Obama. The roots go back 100 years. McCain wouldn’t have solved it, Romney wouldn’t have solved it. Kennedy tried and you see what he got for it.

    It’s really time for people to stop blaming their fellow citizens and figure out who the real culprits are. Like, our media is now owned by 6 people. Monopolies used to be against the law. Does anyone here think that having the public access to information controlled by a very, very small club still means we have a free press?

    Doesn’t everyone here realize that without a free press we don’t have a real democracy? These are basic concepts.

    The problems run way deeper than who sits on the throne.

    I thought we were screwed the first time Obama was elected, I was right. This election proves there is no chance of a come back. Get out of debt.

  • Wally Gator

    Very well said Michael. It absolutely befuddles me how a state like Wisconsin can elect Walker then in a recall elect him again but hen turn around and vote for Obama? and that very liberal Senator over Thompson. Walker was on Fox news last night and he spoke on the Republicans taking both houses in Wisconsin??? How can republicans gain in the state and then lose in the federal elections?

    Nevada has the highest unemployment in the country and they were the leader in foreclosures. The economy is horrible in Nevada and yet Obama gets reelected easily and Harry Reid always wins???

    California is both morally and financially bankrupt and people and companies are leaving in droves but yet Feinstein gets reelected easily and Prop 30 that raises taxes gets easily passed???

    I think it is two things:
    1. God and Christianity being eradicated from almost everywhere.
    2. The liberal ideology indoctrination in our schools.

    I see the following things happening in short order:
    1. Obama issuing some sort of ban on guns and ammo sales for an unspecified period of time.
    2. Economic collapse, the devaluation of the dollar.
    3. Riots and maybe a civil war.
    4. Martial Law being enacted.
    5. NWO being established with a one world government to include US/Euro/Iran/Russia/China.

    • Gary2

      Wally–the republicans gerrymandered the districts to favor them selves. There is currently a lawsuit as is usual the repubes broke several laws to do this gerrymandering.

      The right can not win in WI unless turnout is low and the liberal voters do not get to the polls.

    • RainyDay

      Good post Wally, but I can provide you several video links that’s prove Putin is totally against the New World Order. You should YouTube search the key words ‘Putin against NWO’. He is very serious about each country being sovereign. Western ziomedia demonizes Putin but if you listen to his speeches he is very anti-NWO.

      or you could be completely wrong again. Nothing that conservatives predicted four years ago has happened. The right wing is sooo wrong about so many issues and this was proven with the re-election of Obama.

    • God Save the Queen

      To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

      In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.

      Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas , which she does not fancy).

      Your new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

      Congress and the Senate will be disbanded.

      A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

      To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

      (You should look up ‘revocation’ in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

      1. Then look up aluminum, and check the pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it.

      2. The letter ‘U’ will be reinstated in words such as ‘colour’, ‘favour’ and ‘neighbour.’ Likewise, you will learn to spell ‘doughnut’ with out skipping half the letters, and the suffix ‘-ize’ will be replaced by the suffix ‘-ise’. Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up ‘vocabulary’).

      3. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ‘like’ and ‘you know’ is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as US English. We will let M*crosoft know on your behalf. The M*crosoft spell- checker will be adjusted to take account of the reinstated letter ‘u’ and the elimination of -ize.

      4. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

      5. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you’re not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can’t sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist then you’re not ready to shoot grouse.

      6. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. A permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

      7. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables.

      Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

      8. The Former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline)-roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.

      9. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

      10. The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting Nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of British Commonwealth – see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat’s Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

      11. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialogue in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one’s ears removed with a cheese grater.

      12. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body Armour like a bunch of nancies). Don’t try Rugby – the South Africans and Kiwis will thrash you, like they regularly thrash us.

      13. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America . Since only 2.1% of you are aware that there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries.

      14. You must tell us who killed JFK. It’s been driving us mad.

      15. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty’s Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

      16. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 pm with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

      God Save the Queen.

      • Mondobeyondo

        Um… about #14… I might be able to answer that.

        (the following words are strictly Mondo’s opinion. Take them as you wish)

        It wasn’t Lee Harvey Oswald.
        There were gunmen all over the place at Dealey Plaza that day.
        At least four, possibly as many as seven shots, were fired.

        The first shot was fired from the third floor of the Dal-Tex building, across the street from the TSBD (Texas School Book Depository). This shot missed Kennedy, and instead struck James Tague, a bystander standing by the Triple Underpass. The home movie by Tina Towner gives substantial evidence for this. Kennedy flinches as his limo rounds the corner from Houston to Elm Streets, then he rapidly regains his composure and continues to wave. This was the shot that so many witnesses mistook as a “firecracker”.

        The next shots were fired from the TSBD. One from the famous “sniper’s nest” at the southWEST corner window, and also from a gunman at the SOUTHEAST corner of the sixth floor. Was one of these gunmen Oswald? We may never know for certain. Anyway, one of those shots struck Governor Connally in the wrist. Another struck JFK in the back, 5 inches below his neck.

        The fatal shot was fired by two gunmen in the white, open semi-circular “pagoda” area, directly behind Abraham Zapruder. One gunman shot JFK in the head; the other one shot Governor Connally in the back. Those shots were less than 1 second apart. You can see the effects between Z312 (the frame just before the head shot) and Z345 of the Zapruder film. It’s even more evident in the Orville Nix film. Oswald could not have done this.

        TWO rifles were found on the sixth floor of the TSBD. One was the Mannlicher-Carcazo that Oswald allegedly fired. The other rifle was a Mauser. Who had the Mauzer?

        A paraffin wax test was performed on Oswald’s face and palms after he was arrested. The test proved positive for his hands, but negative for his face. Hmmm. How hard is it to fire a rifle accurately without holding the eyepiece against your face?

        A gunman behind the picket fence at the famous “grassy knoll” shot JFK and hit him in the neck, from the front.
        ——————-
        Again, those are only my views. Everyone has their opinion… I’ve been interested in what really happened that day, ever since I was 13 years old.
        The Warren Commission was nothing more than an attempt to calm a troubled public.
        The “single bullet theory”? No bullet, in the history of ballistics, has ever done what the “magic bullet” is claimed to have done. Sorry, not buying that one.

        Hark when the night is falling
        Hear! Hear the pipes are calling,
        Loudly and proudly calling,
        Down thro’ the glen.
        There where the hills are sleeping,
        Now feel the blood a-leaping,
        High as the spirits of the old Highland men.

        Towering in gallant fame,
        Scotland my mountain hame,
        High may your proud standards gloriously wave,
        Land of my high endeavour,
        Land of the shining river,
        Land of my heart for ever,
        Scotland the brave.

        High in the misty Highlands,
        Out by the purple islands,
        Brave are the hearts that beat
        Beneath Scottish skies.
        Wild are the winds to meet you,
        Staunch are the friends that greet you,
        Kind as the love that shines from fair maiden’s eyes.

        Towering in gallant fame,
        Scotland my mountain hame,
        High may your proud standards gloriously wave,
        Land of my high endeavour,
        Land of the shining river,
        Land of my heart for ever,
        Scotland the brave.

        Far off in sunlit places,
        Sad are the Scottish faces,
        Yearning to feel the kiss
        Of sweet Scottish rain.
        Where tropic skies are beaming,
        Love sets the heart a-dreaming,
        Longing and dreaming for the homeland again.

        Towering in gallant fame,
        Scotland my mountain hame,
        High may your proud standards gloriously wave,
        Land of my high endeavour,
        Land of the shining river,
        Land of my heart for ever,
        Scotland the brave.

      • Old Man

        “..give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.”
        – Does this mean you will grant Scotland independence, effective immediately?

        “Congress and the Senate will be disbanded.”
        – Hurray!!

        “..except Kansas , which she does not fancy”
        – I say old chap, she does not fancy Delaware either – the site of the most humiliating British defeat that resulted in the US of A.

        “Your new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a Governor for America ”
        – How dare you offer that old goat Gordon Brown, a private citizen. The new governor general of the USA must be appointed directly by the Queen! Personally, I find that American-lover Tony Blair rather nice.

        “You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists.”
        – No lawyers or therapists? OK. No guns? Over their dead bodies.

        “..and you will start driving on the left with immediate effect.”
        – Done! The re-election of Obama confirmed the country is driving to the left.

        ” At the same time, you will go metric ..”
        – 99.99% of Americans have never heard of metric. But when a Brit tell them this is the measurement system invented by the French, now used by all countries in the world except US and UK, they throw up.

        “1. Then look up aluminum, and check the pronunciation guide.”
        – Well then, how do you pronounce ammonium?

        “9. You will learn to make real chips.”
        – America makes two kinds of chips, both very real. Potato chips and Intel chips. I gather the Brits don’t make either. Pity.

        “10. The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all.”
        – America no longer make beer. All beer factories have been closed, and beer now imported from China, most popular brand being Sing-Tao. They say Sing-Tao stole the recipe from the Germans.

        “12. You will cease playing American football.”
        – Not to worry. That day will come soon. Today, they are happily destroying NHL hockey.

        “13. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America.”
        – Wrong, wrong and wrong old chap! The World Series is played in America and one other foreign country – Canada! But of course, America + Canada is not the world (tell that to the Republicans), and the UK have never recognized Canada a foreign country anyway. Rumors these days is Canada will exit both the NHL and American baseball in 2013. I think the Canucks are pissed and don’t want to get dragged into decline.

        “14. You must tell us who killed JFK. It’s been driving us mad.”
        – I thought you know. JFK was killed by Marilyn Monroe boyfriend the mafia boss. The boss blew his top when he found out what kind of sex JFK did to her during a 8-hour orgy.

        “15. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty’s Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).”
        – Jolly good show!! The Fed will issue to the UK all monies due back to 1776. That could amount to about $184 trillion dollars.
        Similarly, an IRS henchman will arrive in London soon to collect all monies still owed for bailing out the UK in WW2. That could amount to 4860 trillion British pounds. Look, how much is your country worth? I say about $1000 trillion when you speak British English, about about $100 when you speak German, as when you lost the freaking War!

      • Orange Jean

        ha ha… glad to hear SOMEBODY has a sense of humor. I need to inform you, however:

        1) Since the Queen is only a puppet of the now socialist UK, your argument has no standing whatsoever

        2) If any “royalty” has a legitimate claim in these parts (that would be southeastern Virginia, roughly 40 miles southeast as the crow flies across the James River from Jamestown, claimed at one time as “Bass’s Choice”) … it would really need to go instead to be some descendent of Pocahontas or one of her relatives. Prepare your bows and arrows for a fight!

        3) however, the Queen can claim roughly 3/4 of the deer in these parts, that is… if she can personally come over and catch the darn things (way too much road kill in these parts). While she’s at it, hat and all… she can take back some of those giant pigs I understand have taken over some parts of Georgia (quite a bit south of here).

        4) I concur with point #10, having grown up near Rhode Island… where we always ate our fries with vinegar, not ketchup

        Yours truly, The Rebel

      • Orange Jean

        ha ha… glad to see someone has a sense of HUMOR still. Unfortunately I must dispute your claims since:

        1) You do realize you’re just a figurehead these days, eh? My understanding is the UK has been taken over by socialists (if you look at comments from BBC, you’ll find I fear… they are even more extreme than the socialists in these parts).

        2) My moniker has nothing to do with the Irish (Orange vs. Green) by the way

        3) If there is any royalty who had a legitimate claim in these parts (and I’m NOT suggesting they do), which is in southeastern VA roughly 40 miles as the crow flies…. over the James River, southeast of Jamestown. Formerly known as “Bass’s Choice”… it would be descendants of Pocahontas. They are fighting mad tho, so bring some bows and arrows with you!

        4) I am willing to give you roughly 3/4 of the deer in this neck of the woods. However, you’ll have to take off your hat and come over and personally capture or shoot them… (we already have way too much road kill). While you’re here, I suggest you go on a side trip south to Georgia and gather as many of those huge hogs that have invaded. I’m sure the Floridians would also be fine with you taking as many Burmese pythons as you can capture and taking them back.

        5) I concur with the vinegar with fries thing (my family was from Rhode Island, I never even heard of eating fries with ketchup until I left home; still don’t like it either)

        6) I hate tea!!

  • Gay Veteran

    If you haven’t read Arthur Silber before then it is well past time to WAKE UP and face the truth about our empire:

    November 05, 2012
    Yeah, Yeah, Nobody Knows Anything

    “…Actually, I know a few things. I know that, in terms of basics, it doesn’t matter a damn whether Obama or Romney wins. They are both perfect embodiments of the corporatist-authoritarian-militarist system that’s wrecking ever-increasing areas of the world, as it lays waste to America at home. That’s why one of them will win, and you won’t. I won’t, either. Too bad for you…

    But one of those two bastards is notably more useful to the ruling class than the other. That would be … that’s right: Obama. If you thought it was Romney, you’ve absorbed the propaganda, baby. Gotta watch that. The ruling class is vicious, deadly, eternally greedy for power and wealth — and they are not remotely stupid, not when it comes to getting what they want. They’re the ruling class, right? Not stupid. From their perspective, the very best thing about Obama is that so many people who are not members of the ruling class think that Obama is on their side. Even after Obama has systematically betrayed all those “ordinary” people for the last four years, they still think he’s really on their side. He just couldn’t do what he wanted to do — which happens to be exactly what all those good liberals and progressives wanted him to do — because: a) evil Republicans; b) evil Republicans left a really, really, huge mess; c) evil Republicans kept messing with him; d) evil Republicans kept stealing his toys; and e) evil Republicans…

    So the point is that with Obama as president, the ruling class can screw you over about 20 gabillion times more than if Romney were president. Because lots of people will believe that Obama isn’t trying to screw them. That opens up tons of possibilities. And the liberals and progressives help a whole huge bunch — c’mon, give credit where it’s due — because when Obama wrecks whatever is left of the safety net, gives trillions of dollars and other goodies to all his best friends and, let us not forget, murders more and more people with those keen drones (and probably some bombs and missiles in a few select lucky countries before he’s done), all the lefties (I use the term, uh, flexibly) will sigh once or twice, look kinda sad, and then after a while, they might murmur … “evil Republicans!”….”

      Exactly!
      The two parties are a smoke screen while someone circles behind to pick your pocket. People need to tune out political parties and look at whats being done.

    • Rose

      Gay Veteran: Although I don’t always agree with what you say, I am glad that at least for now, we still have the freedom to speak our minds here. There is coming a day, probably soon, when we won’t be allowed to anymore. BTW, I think you are spot on. The American people are being duped, bought, and sold to the highest bidder!Romney might have slowed it down some, but the outcome is still the same.Those who bought Obamas “I am for the people” lie don’t understand that he IS one of the ruling class elite. The American people have been duped! They have spoken and they just voted our freedom away.

  • Old Man

    Obama’s record is for all to judge. In the campaign, he had Bill Clinton with him everywhere. They basically said, judge Bill’s 8 years an Barack’s 4. The rest, ground game, ads, etc, are just the machinery.

    Mitt’s record as governor is also for all to judge. Including saying one thing in public and quite different in front of billionaires asking for their money. Mitt’s epic battles in the primaries were bloody and nasty. Those battles cast Mitt as yet another fundamentalist neocon even though he isn’t. The primaries hurt the GOP big time – self-inflicted. And then during the campaign against Obama with the eloquent Bill on his side everyday, Mitt did not and could not do same with one GW Bush – now an international outcast in exile. Such is the absolute disaster of the Bush presidency and the GOP ideology. That disaster is fact for all to see, and cannot be denied. Add to these big pictures, Mitt ran one giant flawed campaign – he has proven to be a flawed manager.

    GOP lost because the country is still suffering profoundly from the Bush 8 years, and because Mitt proposed no new ideas, no new solution – just more of the same. Trickle-down economics, government is evil, war is good, and if you lost in the winner-take-all economy, that’s your problem. Except if you’re my money-pal, you get a bailout.

    Obama said – my vision is middle-class centric. No trickle-down, no war, balance public wealth, winners can take a lot but not all. And he needs more time to clean up the Bush mess, more time to reverse course. Majority bought it.

    In a democracy, everybody deserves what they get.

    nov 6 was a momentous day. the ‘have nots’ in america out voted the ‘haves’. democracy has ended. the have not numbers will increase as the middle classes fall to join them.
    never again can a responsible economist be elected. as america goes we (uk) go.
    its all over for all of us.
    as it all fails the police state will grow to become dictatorship.

    • 007

      Well put. Something very horrible happened in this election. Obama was totally unmasked. All of his socialist policies were laid bare. The Tea party and the conservatives gave their best shot at stopping him and his disastrous march to socialist decline. In the end, the voters chose to continue down a obvious path to inevitable decline and destruction.

      The “have nots” came out and out voted those who have been forced to fund this sinking welfare state. It mattered none to them that their demands for free government benefits will bankrpt the country. They want their pitiful government hand outs to continue and let the rest of the country be damned.

      Well, be prepared. Those hard working patriots who tried to change the course of our country are going to stop trying to save this country. They are going to be focused now on saving their families and themselves from the impending collapse. They will be cutting jobs, saving money and if they are smart, getting the hell out of Dodge. The economy is about to contract as never seen before. As the productive portion of society hunker down or leave, the economic collapse will accelerate.

      History will laugh at us that we voted for our own destruction. Some will say the “have nots” votes were bought. I say it is more accurate that their votes were rented cheap.

      I am getting prepared to move to the Caymen Islands before the civil unrest tears the country apart. Good luck everyone. This was a very, very sad day.

  • What?

    Obviously you are a Ron Paul supporter, and while he has some good points, there is no way he would have been elected or received even half of the votes that Mitt Romney got. He comes off and a whining fool…and if you think he would have done a better job at fixing our economy and getting us back on track than Mitt would you are delusional. Usually I enjoy your website, but you are wrong on this one. Ron Paul is NOT the answer…a return to God and principals is – and we have shown that as a people we are lacking in both.

      To What?
      Hello What?
      I must say,….
      it is apparant that you have not connected the dots, you just don’t get it. RP was the best chance America had. We were cheated out of that chance. You suggest that Michael and others who wanted Ron Paul – as being delusional, …and then suggest what’s needed is returning to God and principals.

      Classic difinition of what a oxymoron is.

      You also are missing the mark.
      As you say, so many are.
      You can’t speak for them either.
      Michael is very well informed and not spiritually disconnected from God’s people.

      You, What?, seem to can’t tell the difference between Mormonism, Islam and Orthodox Christianity… but even if you can, the value you place on them is equal. That’s worldliness and you need to repent of it by way of growing in the grace and the knowledge of the truth a little more.

      Thanks

    • GSOB

      What a oxymoron statement by What?

      Suggests that Ron Paul supporters are delusional to think that RP would have done better as POTUS than the defeated Romney. RP was cheated, not defeated.

      RP was America’s best chance to reforming our Federal government and
      and the restoration of our rights. You, my shallow advisor, are the one that has not connected the dots. Michael is very informed and absolutely correct about RP.

      Admit it What?… your response… perhaps you should have removed the tape off your mouth to tie your hands with instead? You just don’t know what you are talking about.

    • Quercus454

      Either you believe in the Constitution or you don’t. There is no middle ground. There was only one candidate that would have brought us back to government within the confines of constitutional authority. That candidate was Ron Paul. Too many Americans think of the election as a sport, where their team should win at all costs. Putting party before the welfare of the country and it’s best interest has led us to where we are today.

    This country is down to 10 percent

    That is the number left that have their heads screwed on straight and can still – just get it done.

    Case in point is recent superstore Sandy. A friggin’ week has gone by while FEMA screws around doing nothing but asking for more money and elected officials trip over one another in high praise for the job well done.

    Meanwhile, millions still have no power and cannot get gas & the big solution? Start rationing in surrounding states. ” We have the gas, just no electricity to run the stations”

    MORONS !

    I’ll tell you what idiots – you show me a gas station with 25,000 gallons of petrol in it’s tanks – and I’ll show you 5 easy ways to extract it. with
    Or without the electric grid. I mean ‘c’mon people; how in the heck do you think they fill up thousand gallon excavator tanks at a mine site?

    ever heard of a battery operated suction pump?

    It’s about damn time we started to all speak very plain English. these “people” that are living in these city suburbs with these high paying jobs with titles like ” director of human resources” , aide to status of operations, utilization of the comptroller, secondary counselor.

    They have NO NO NO NO clue how to DO anything ! NONE NONE

    I disagree that Mitt Romney was an embarrassment. He is a good man. He tried to run in the middle when he could and the nation’s idea of the middle is way out in left field. He could not have done anything to stem the tide of spending anyhow. A post on zerohedge sums it up. In 2011 we took in $2.303 trillion in tax revenue. We spent $454.4 billion in interest on the debt and $2.05 trillion on social security, medicare and other mandatory entitlement spending for a total of $2.479 trillion for the year. We spent $176.4 billion more than all of our tax collections. Now we have to add in the military,all government employees, the IRS, Homeland Security thugs, CIA, FBI, Secret Service, energy dept, welfare, and all the other costs and departments of the government. It gets worse each year. The artice points out that 80% are concerned about the debt, but at the same time 78% oppose cutbacks to mandatory entitlements like Medicare. We have a problem and the people do not want to fix it.

      Stan, be very careful with what you wish for. Unless you are communicating from the underground bunker with the Hedge Hogs, all the prepping in the world is not going to save us from the tsunami that could be heading our way. I think of people putting up sand bags trying to hold back 15 foot tidal waves. I honestly thought that a God fearing man, virtuous man like Romney had a “CHANCE” to save the USS RedWhiteBlue from crashing into the iceberg. Assuming the communist world wrecker George Soros was not counting the votes, the takers out numbered the earners. The partyers told the designated drivers “one more drink” and then voted to keep the party going because they are not paying for it. Catholics, especially that Scribe/Pharisee Cardinal Dolan continue to take the 30 pieces of silver. In all our prepping, remember the ultimate prep. Get right with God. When we face Him, I doubt he will ask us how many gallons of Poland Spring water we had in our safety pantry. I have not given up, but Satan is definately winning on planet Earth right now. When virtue reigns supreme, only then will the RedWhiteBlue enjoy prosperity again. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow. Christi Fidelis !

    Americans who willfully and deliberately vote for DEMONcrats – any and all of them -WILL be held accountable to Almighty God; when they ” pass “! In voting FOR DEMONcrats they vote AGAINST Almighty God’s ” Word “; as detailed in His Holy Bible! They vote AGAINST the Natural Law; which infused in EACH us by our Maker! Those who vote FOR DEMONcrats are thereby voting FOR abortion, homosexuality, gay ” marriage ” and other GRAVE evils that are ABOMINATIONS to Almighty God!

    These ignoramuses are GUILTY of their CULPABLE IGNORANCE! They WILL be held accountable … when they meet their Maker!

    This election was a second opportunity or do-over for those who voted FOR Demoncrats in 2008! But apparently all the ” freebies ” the DEMONcrats entice them with are more important to them than living righteously! Just as Eve did in the Garden of Eden, they embraced the lies of the Serpent / Deceiver!

    Michael,
    I voted for President Obama in 2008 and felt very let down, very disappointed with his performance. But I ended up voting for him again this week. I saw him as the lesser of the two evils. And as a woman I appreciate the fact that he supports women’s rights, which in my eyes is his saving grace.
    Realistically, no one wants more of the same. And I can’t blame one person for everything that’s wrong with our country. There have been many hands in the cookie jar over a long period of time.
    Romney couldn’t and wouldn’t have been able to turn this country around any more that President Obama has been able to.
    You’re right, the citizens of this country have spoken they aren’t willing to test drive some nit wit.

    • Jammin Jimmy

      Hey Deborah,

      I love that all the women that voted for Obama were only thinking about there freedom of below the wast. Most all the women I know tend to think with there head and are concerned about the world we live in. A sorry moment that womens so called “rights” will be the real reason so many intelligent women voted for such a poor reason.

      • Your Mama

        Of course this Is a dude^

      • Rose

        Steveo, I am a woman and I agree with you! The women who supported Obama in the name of “womens rights” are morally and spiritually denuded individuals who care about easy access to birth control and abortion so they can fornicate at will. My suggestion is they need to respect their bodies and wait for marriage.{I know this is considered “old fashioned” but this idea comes from God, not me}.
        Also, women in this country enjoy more freedom, more rights, more success than anywhere on earth so the whole idea of womens rights in this country is really a non-issue that has been made a driving force for the fracturing of our Republic into shards and destroying us as a people.

        • Rietje

          Well said.

        • Erin

          Rose, I am a woman who voted for Obama in the name of women’s rights, but in fact I am a virgin, and intend to remain so! I voted for Obama because I am sick of Republican men thinking that they can define rape, wanting to restrict access to birth control in the name of religion when access to birth control and non-abstinence-only education has been factually proven to lower abortion rates, and not thinking before they speak (see ‘binders full of women.’) I voted for Obama because I have empathy for my fellow women, something that many Republicans seem to sorely lack. I recognize the reality that choices are multilayered, not simple. I make my choice to remain a virgin but would never make demands of others, male or female, and as such I am proud of my personal virginity and proud of my support for someone whom I know has empathy for all women as well.

    • TheRandyGuy

      I love it when I read posts from women who support politicians that “support women’s rights”, clearly meaning the right to murder their unborn child. I’m curious if these same women, so strident in their insistence on being able to kill their child on a whim, would support the politician who advocates allowing men the choice not to pay child support if the woman who can choose to kill her child decides to have it instead. I doubt it, but the irony and double standard would be lost on most of these women anyway.

        hey randyguy, how many unwanted babies have YOU adopted?

  • Kapper

    Michael, I think you give Obama’s ground game too much credit. He actually got several million less votes. He still won because Romney also got several million less votes than McCain got in 2008.
    In paticular, the exit polls are showing that a huge number of white voters stayed home, and these are the Republican’s base, even if they are too embarrased to admit it. I don’t know why so many whites didn’t vote this time. I voted third party. Perhaps they, like myself, no longer see either the Republicans or the Democrats as being capable of solving America’s problems, and chose to stay home instead of voting third party.

    • John S

      Also don’t give Obama’s ground game too much credit: There are 21 districts in Cleveland where Mr. Romney received precisely 0 votes. In 23 districts, he received precisely 1 vote. And naturally, in one of the districts where Obama won 100% of the vote, there was 100% turnout. What a coincidence! This are Saddam Hussein election results.

      • TtT Engine

        Yes. Romney got 2 million less votes than McCain. That means that conservatives stayed home and said no more diet coke versus diet pepsi. If the “R” party is not going to give us a true conservative, let it crash [I voted for Mr. Rogers by the way]. Shameless, worthless, sheist catholics voted 52% for Obama and 48% for Romney, AGAIN. Thanks Kennedy family, Mario Cuomo, Geraldine Ferraro, Joe Biden, John Kerry, NOTRE DAME, GEORGETOWN, CARDINAL DOLAN, POPE BENEDICT, et.als. for the lip service, fine evangelization and promotion of authentic Catholic/Judaio-Chritian values.

    GOOD NEWS: Micheal.

    The number one thing everyone should be doing hasn’t been discussed yet.

    Dental work. During the 1929 depression, dentistry work went down. Nobody could afford to get any work done.

    If you remember the movie “Castaway” staring Tom Hanks you will remember what he had to do to cure his toothache.

  • Colin

    One of the reasons for gridlock is that the Republicans are against working with the Democrats. While the Democrats are moving more to the center to compromise with the Republicans, the Republicans refuse to compromise with the Democrats. One of the values in a great politician was the ability to compromise.

    And, Michael, the candidate for President has to go through background checks. The FBI conducts the background check. Perjury is a crime. I know that is comfortable to rely on the lies perpetuated by the right wing noise machine. I think for our nation to reconcile that people like you need to stop disparaging the president. He is not white. So what? He is an American. Our nation is changing, and, if your party doesn’t adapt, they will eventually become insignificant. This is the first time that minorities guided the nation by electing for a president. The white vote has lost its power.

    When I saw your party’s convention, I saw a sea of white faces with the token minority. In my party’s convention, we had a mix of races. We represent the true face of the nation – a multicultural nation.

    • das

      You say Obama is not white. Then he is not black. Because he chose not to be white. It makes me angry that he has forgot about his other half. The one thats not “cool”. You say he is not white but american? Yet go on to say you partys a multicultural nation. So whites are no longer american? Why has every one forget that for 200 years the the commander and chief was white, and made this the greatest nation in the world? Dont dare call me a racist, I am not. I welcome every man woman and child, no matter what color they are. I would vote for anyone I belive in color, sex, it doesent matter to me. The trouble is the minorities caues the majorty of the trouble. ( dont belive me look up crime stats). Minorities can bring very good ideas to this nation. But we need to figure out how to clean up the bad ones. Want to see Americas future, look at L.A thats what the cities will all become. Crime crime crime.

        Let’s get his race straight once and for all…Obama is 4/8ths white…3/8th’s arab and 1/8th Kenyan ancestry ( his paternal grandmother)..this is easily verifiable.

        Obama has no “African-American” heritage at all. His ancesters were not slaves, in fact historical records show that Arabic africans were the primary TRADERS of slaves. There is no evidence that Obama is a decendent of slave traders either.

        So what we know about his parentage–his mother ( Ann Dunham) was a devoted communist/socialist who supposedly was impregnated by Barak Hussein Obama Senior from the Luou tribe in Kenya- a devout Muslim of 4 devout Islamic grandparents. The father was an activist who targeted, ” colonizing” nations such as England and America as his direction of hate. Toddling Barak’s mommy was estranged from Barak’s biological father and married an Indonesian Muslim man. He spent his formative years in Indonesia studying at Islamic schools ( Beouki Primary School) where he took the equivalent of AP courses because his deeply held faith and memorization of the Koran. ( As an aside, one can only attend school in Indonesia if one has dual or full citizenship as an Indonesian.)

        Later, little Barry was sent to live with his 2 admitted communist/marxist grandparents- Stanley and Madelyn Dunham- in Hawaii. His grandparents were the ones with the ties to groups such as Bernadine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground and other outspoken anti-American groups. His grandparents also were the ones who introduced him to Frank Marshall Davis–an avowed communist who has a 600 page FBI file and is on a short list of “national security threats.”

        It was also Frank Marshall Davis, who sidelined as a pornographer, who took the nude pictures of Obamas mother and published them as compliments to stories in “Exotique”, “Bondage” and “Secret Pleasures”…again all of this is easily verifiable for any caring American.

        So that is who his parents were. We don’t get to choose who our parents were so we can’t hold their beliefs and actions against him–unless he embraces those beliefs as his own and furthers the agenda of their associates.

        Either way, it is easy to see why this man is so screwed up. Much of his arrogance and behaviour is an obvious cover for a very insecure and confused person who has truly become an image or representation of something more than an actual person.

      There are some things we cannot compromise on. For example, I am a Catholic. My faith teaches me that I cannot do certain things, and I believe and support that. When it came to the mandate, there was no compromise, in spite of what you might have heard after the fact. For those who are non-Catholic, ask yourself, if a government can step in and tell us we have to disregard tenets of our faith, what’s to prevent them from doing the same to you? I think it’s only a matter of time before evangelization is outlawed.

      I know you see your party has having come to “the center of the aisle,” and that is true on many issues. But on a great many things, things that matter, they went the opposite direction.

      Colin, a great quote from a Republican president, not all Republicans should be held to blame for everything that is happening in the United States. so here goes the quote from Reagan, “Recession is when your neighbor loses his job, Depression is when you lose your job” Under the chosen one you will be guaranteed to lose yours.

    “But not only did the American people allow Democrats to keep control of the U.S. Senate, the Democrats actually gained a couple of extra seats, and several of the newly elected Senators are extremely liberal…The funny thing is that the American people also gave the Republicans very firm control of the U.S. House of Representatives once again. It is almost as if they were saying that they want things to remain exactly the same as they are right now.”

    You should remember that all politics are “local.” Representatives are elected from small districts that might cover many counties (or parishes for you Louisiana-types) and will consist of mostly small town or rural people, which have a tendency to vote libertarian/conservative or neocon/fascist. Senators are state-wide positions and the large populations of the mega-cities can carry the election. These city folks tend to vote fascist/liberal.

    The federal government is inadequate in representation of all the separate peoples of America and its coverage and jurisdiction should be reduced to just a few states, like maybe the original thirteen colonies. The rest of the states should secede from the U.S. federal government and form their own confederacies or republics.

    In this way the government that tries to run the peoples’ lives is smaller and closer to the people it is supposed to represent and serve. As Sun Tzu famously said, “Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer…”

Yes, So-Damn-Insane (Saddam Hussein) had chemical weapons. He used them against the Kurdish people of northern Iraq, in the mid-late 1990’s. If I’m not mistaken, Saddam even admitted that himself!!

      The point is – he had chemical weapons. He HAD chemical weapons. HAD, HAD, HAD! But he GOT RID OF THEM (with a little help and pressure from the U.N.), long before the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.

      Did it matter to Dubya’s administration? No. It made for a convenient excuse to invade Iraq.

    Regardless who won the election I would have to said that close to 50% are angry that the other person won and the other close to 50% is clearly delusional.

    Looking forward there are several factors that is holding back the economy.

    -Hurricane Sandy which is project to be $100 billion dollar storm adding a drag to us economy

    -Before the major storm, economics indication pointed towards another downturn in the economy

    -Layoffs that were delayed for the election will start to commence

    -Financial cliff is fast approaching

    When the next downturn happens, the same people that voted Obama in will come up with creative reasons why it is Bush’s fault, and the Mitt supporters will obviously blame it on Obama.

    Fiscal cliff? Who cares? Let the Republicans fight over it.
    And so on, and so on, until everything crashes and burns.

    Republicans: You idiots! You can’t just pour water on it, because it’s an oil fire and water will cause it to spread! By the way, call in reinforcements? We don’t have the MONEY for reinforcements, because you Dems cut the funding for first responders! YOU SPENT IT ALL! We can’t AFFORD more firefighters!!

    And on and on and on it goes…

    First of all, I must acknowledge that the Obama campaign had the best “ground game” in the history of American politics. Their ability to deliver their voters to the polls was absolutely amazing. Yes, the election was close, but I thought it would be much closer. The Obama “ground game” made a significant difference.

    While Mr. Entitled was shell shocked that Americans rejected him and his party’s divisive policies, our great President was over at his campaign headquarters personally thanking his staff for all of the hard work they did. I just saw this video of him, and he had tears rolling down his face as he gave them his heart felt thanks, and told them they were the greatest group of people that he had ever had the pleasure to work with. He told all of them how intelligent and bright they all are, and that no matter what they choose to do now, he knows they will all be very successful.

    To see this wonderful man moved to tears, with the gratitude and generosity he felt for these people, made me so proud to know that I voted for a man who genuinely DOES know how us average Americans live, and that he truly does care about us having better lives and more opportunities. We reelected a great man, and we should all feel proud for doing so.

    30 years ago you conservatives thought of yourselves as the “moral majority”. Now you are the enlightened minority while everyone else is degenerate.

In ten years it will be unthinkable to say that drugs should be illegal or that only a man and a woman should be married. You will get a better reaction going on a tirade against race mixing.

  • Seen

    Fair warning, this post is meant to be objective, but it is inevitably going to ruffle feathers. If Michael or his moderation decides to delete this one, I can understand why.

    “It is estimated that approximately 6 billion dollars was spent on political campaigns in 2012, and we ended up exactly in the same place that we were before. Barack Obama is still in the White House, the Democrats still have solid control of the U.S. Senate and the Republicans still have solid control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Clearly, the American people want more of the same, and that is really bad news.”

    This is supposing that President Obama doesn’t simply render the Legislature a formality and seize control by turning it into a Parliamentary system without the illusion benefit of a Prime Minister like Richelieu with Protestant King of France to rally the Protestant nation against the Catholic Feudal Hapsburg Holy Roman Empire. For those who don’t know, Parliamentary systems are controlled by the President, and Zarkaria of CNN actually promoted for the US on GPS. So, even if the Legislature fails to act, President Obama has already made it clear that he will act unilaterally through Executive Powers and Orders.

    “The path that we have been on will only lead to unprecedented disaster, and now it is abundantly clear that there are not going to be any solutions to our problems on the national level.”

    As I wrote above, President Obama will offer solutions by continuing to treat the Legislature as a Parliament. On the other hand, the Progressives on both sides would simply pull out the stops. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s another massive FBI raid on non-compliant Republicans. After all, the populace did elect a man who openly wanted to rule through Executive Powers and Orders.

    Frankly, I don’t think that these issues either have the political will or the desire to solve them.
    MIT estimated the death toll to a massive economic shock to be up to 6 Billion. John P Holdren is what again? Chief Science and Technology Adviser to President Obama (I don’t recall reading that he has been replaced). Then, there’s the NDAA to consider as well as Kill List that includes US citizens and residents. What a coincidence isn’t it?
    Is it any wonder that Neo-Malthusianism is deeply imbedded in the Affordable Healthcare Act aka Obamacare with Holdren controlling the scientific and technological agenda of the US?

    “I was horrified by how Romney treated Ron Paul and his supporters during the primaries. It turns out that Romney desperately could have used their help in swing states that Romney barely lost like Ohio, Virginia and Florida.”

    The GOP wanted Ron Paul’s supporters out of the party. They are after all enemies of the state because founding principles would rip a major hole in the welfare-warfare central state. Simply put, the Progressive agenda is National Socialism disguised as Democracy. Much like Mao, Lenin, and Stalin promised women equal rights, prosperity for all, but sold them down the river in the end or to the Siberian Gulags for repudiations, forced labor, torture, and death. The Leninst-Marxist Dialectic predicts that Capitalism will be destroyed, and Communism would rule the world. Apparently, it’s been generalized to National Socialism. You’ll work for Big Government, Big Industries, and as a member of a Big Union. Golley, it gives a warm and fuzzy feeling doesn’t it?

    “Obviously you are a Ron Paul supporter, and while he has some good points, there is no way he would have been elected or received even half of the votes that Mitt Romney got. He comes off and a whining fool…and if you think he would have done a better job at fixing our economy and getting us back on track than Mitt would you are delusional. Usually I enjoy your website, but you are wrong on this one. Ron Paul is NOT the answer…a return to God and principals is – and we have shown that as a people we are lacking in both.”

    Considering, Ron Paul embodies the principles that made us great; this would be a contradiction. Frankly, Obama would have a harder time attacking Paul the way he did Romney/Ryan, and he would probably be the best one suited to maneuver for a soft landing. Our present political class expresses no real action that suggests that this is actually on the to do list. Keynesian Economics for the US Dollar dies as the US Dollar loses its world’s reserve currency status. No US Dollar world’s reserve currency status means no government spending. In other words take 14.14 trillion X percent of spending, the real GDP would be closer to 10 trillion minus 130%-200% debt depending on the thoroughness of the measurements. This means our Military will only remain more advanced than anyone else for at best a decade but with roughly 10% manufacturing and production via globalization, NAFTA, and CAFTA would make a large confrontation 1 for every 3 destroyed for the US and roughly 3 for every 1 destroyed at best with nations like Russia and especially China. Military Politicians and Intelligence Officers are banking on by positioning our forces in a loosely formed global Monroe Doctrine will force Russia and China into a US Cold War II. There’s three problems here:
    First and foremost, while historians name USSR’s downfall as its economy and Chernobyl caused massive upheaval on top of its brutal domestic and international policies, it fails to take into consideration both of these occurred trying to keep pace with the US at its economic and infrastructure prime as a global super-power. This is on par to historians believing that the US possessed Philippines were its Achilles’ Heel during World War II without also taking into account that Japan’s strategy was to cut the US’s supply lines and immediate reinforcements at Pearl Harbor making the conquest of the Philippines more likely to succeed prior to seeking a conditional surrender. Meaning, if the US hadn’t had controlled the Philippines, Pearl Harbor wouldn’t have been simply bombed but overrun; prior to, the US actively entering the war besides gun boats aiding the Chinese against Japan on top of its oil embargo. No, the real lesson that I guarantee Ex-KGB President Putin understands full well; they cannot win an economic cold war with the US without attacking its world’s reserve currency status. Putin also knows that if Syria, Lebanon, and Iran collapses to the west; the West will utterly force Russia and China to either launch an offensive or submit to the West despite possessing the global balance of power and stronger economy overall. The US Dollar’s world’s reserve currency status is the bases and foundational pillar to US Global Hegemony. Obama and Romney would and will roll the die at some point, and we’ll have a war that we are economically ill positioned to win. The war on terror is truly the parallel to: “My kingdom for a horse”/”One more such victory and I’m ruined”. Russia and China’s movements to derail the world’s reserve currency status is accelerating precisely because the East possesses the global balance of power and stronger economic infrastructure. Sure, you can point to China’s inflationary pressures as a major issue; however, the Chinese governmental regime isn’t about to let itself be overthrown. It also is already making movements to prepare redirecting their populace against a foreign enemy. Care to guess whom the Chinese will point it’s populace’s anger at? The US, Israel, and NATO who will have to combat Syria, Lebanon, Pakistan, Iran, and North Korea. India has shown wildcard actions since 2009 as well as Germany who recently dropped the US Dollar in denominated trade with China and instead will trade in their own currencies. We are already on the verge of a trade war, or it’ll jump straight into armed conflict. Do you think that the West can live with the present leadership in Syria, Lebanon, and Iran? As I pointed out, Russia and China cannot afford to allow Syria and Iran to fold without a fight.
    Romney simply would use Hawk rhetoric to get support for interventionist expansionist policies, and Obama will continue to use Dovish rhetoric to accomplish the same for foreign policy. The economy will continue to follow Keynesian Economics until the Dollar’s erosion forces further and bolder military expansionism.
    Returning to God and principles requires backing a Statesmen who embodies them, the best choice then would have been Ron Paul. Unfortunately, you have a point that Ron Paul would not win the election. Unfortunately, Michael is then right; the populace voted for the type of governmental representation that it wanted by majority.

    Unfortunately, we’re looking at solutions likely coming from Executive Powers and Orders as well as the very large chance of forcing Russia and China to come to defend the remaining nations acting as buffers from Western Hawkish or Dovish interventionism and expansionism.

    In ascertaining the cause of the GOP’s critical condition, let us use Occam’s razor – the principle that the simplest explanation is often the right one.

    Would the GOP wipeout in those heavily Catholic, ethnic, socially conservative, blue-collar bastions of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, which Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan swept, have anything to do with the fact that the United States since 2000 has lost 6 million manufacturing jobs and 55,000 factories?

    Where did all those jobs and factories go? We know where.

    They were outsourced. And in the deindustrialization of America, the Republican Party has been a culpable co-conspirator.

    Unlike family patriarch Sen. Prescott Bush, who voted with Barry Goldwater and Strom Thurmond against JFK’s free-trade deal, Bush I and II pumped for NAFTA, GATT the WTO and opening America’s borders to all goods made by our new friends in the People’s Republic of China.

    Swiftly, U.S. multinationals shut factories here, laid off workers, outsourced production to Asia and China, and brought their finished goods back, tax-free, to sell in the U.S.A.

    Profits soared, as did the salaries of the outsourcing executives.

    And their former workers? They headed for the service sector, along with their wives, to keep up on the mortgage payment, keep the kids in Catholic school and pay for the health insurance the family had lost.

    Tuesday, these ex-Reagan Democrats came out to vote against some guy from Bain Capital they had been told in ads all summer was a big-time outsourcer who wrote in 2008, “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt!”

    Yes, the simplest explanation is often the right one.

    What we are seeing are signs. They are the signs of bad thinking, bad decisions and corruption that have crawled into every corner of American society today. The election of Obama is a sign that something is seriously wrong with America. The financial crisis is another sign. 9/11 was another sign.

    If bad thinking and bad decisions can lead to the election of Obama, then they can also affect national security. On my website I am tracking the approaching war with China and Russia. I have credible concerns that America might not be here before Obama can finish his next term.

    The China-Japan dispute over the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands threatens to escalate into war. Before that there was the China-Philippines dispute over the Scarborough Shoal. Then there have been several fairly clear implied threats of nuclear war coming out of Russia over western interference in the Middle East, including Iran and Syria. And the list of items goes on and on. For those paying attention, extreme danger is brewing as the US guts its nuclear arsenal. The goal is zero nuclear weapons for the US. Instead, we will get zero population.

    Barrack Obama just might be known throughout all of time as the president who lost America. The shame on Obama’s name will be so great that it will rise up to heaven.

    Well Obama won, not so much by choice but by default.
    By all of those who chose not to make a choice at all

    While there were more eligible voters in 2012, there were 17 million less at the polls than in 2008, nearly 4 million less than the 2004 election.
    There were slightly over 104 million votes cast in 1992, 20 years later only 117 million.

    We increased the poulation by 50 million in 20 years, but only produced 13 million voters?

    It has come down to this, citizens have lost faith in the system,they have come to the conclusion that no matter who is in office they are screwed. So it comes down to the best show and not the real issues, and who has the media on their side (give you one guess)

    The President won by 2% of the popular vote, and that is hardly a mandate, as much as it shows how divided we are.

    I beg to differ Michael,

    20 years ago, clinton the pervert and possible rapist won too, he got an 8 year presidency that was followed by 8 years of republican rule.

    Obama only won thanks to massive electoral fraud (the only large-scale industry not yet shipped to China), many of his supporters voting multiple times each, the beyond the grave vote, the pet vote, the illegal vote etc.
    Yes, the republicans comitted some voting fraud too but the democrats had by far the largest lead, democrate fraud was sanctionned at the top and systematic at the base.

    Obummer is weak and when 2012 becomes known as a golden age of prosperity and security, he and his cronies will be even weaker and even les credible.

    He would still have lost without being (half) black.
    He would still have lost if he hadn´t asked for the rich to be taxed more.
    He would still had lost if the economic statistics had not been systematically fudged.
    He would have still lost if he had been seen as a president who would start a war with Iran (the Obama presidency is the worst thing that happened to the anti-war movements).
    He would still have lost if he had taken austerity measures in response to rising debt, like european leaders did.
    He would still have lost against Cain or Ron Paul.
    He would still have lost if the military vote had not been deliberately bungled (see IhatetheMedia.com ).

    His supporters voted themselves a pay rise but there is only that much more that the USA can borrow, when the Chinese gov throws the towel, the parasites, be it in the governement, “green” corporate interests and in the “defavorized” ghettos would be cut-off.

    They can´t invade China so they´ll demand that you, dear citizens, shares your wealth with them. I am a democrate, I am the 99%, I support the minority struggle against the white racist power structure, I am not rich, I am an undercover black panther or I am 1/32 cherokee isn´t going to convince them.

    Enough of “the people” have spoken. And so it was said. Let it be done. We can now sit back and watch it all degrade further and further into the abyss. Fiscal cliff worries? That ain’t nuthin’, just a mainstream-dot-gov cover-up for the imminent global collapse. And then, “the people” won’t be speaking, they’ll be screaming. And looting.

    Be prepared! And wait for the Cull of the Nation. Oh, do we need a cull!

  • r.bitting

    Have I not been saying exactly what your title says on this site for two years now! God drew a line in the sand on this election, and even arranged it so that America would have two distinct choices from which to choose, one which would signify a willingness and longing of America to return to a moral framework based on biblical principles, and the other was the continuation down the same path to destruction. The people have sealed their doom. No politician was ever going to save the country anyway, because change begins at home, but the fact that God orchestrated for America to have the opportunity to choose a Godly candidate itself points to God’s line in the sand. America’s choice will serve as a witness against it. America is surely about to fall. Get right with God by repenting of your sin and turning to Christ for forgiveness.

    Dear American People,

    As a French who knows how the socialism is the worst theory in the world after communism, I can’t understand why you have chosen this guy as president. I hoped, that Romney would have been elected. You were our hope but no, you chose this strange man.

    Believe me, we chose six month ago a real socialist, Mr. Hollande, and our country is now collapsing! Well, it is true that our country is collapsing since 1981 with the election of Mr Miterrand who worked with communists.

    But why did you do such a stupid think? I thought that american people loves liberty and responsibility.

    Barak Hussein Obama is socialist and is irresponsable!

    • DownWithLibs

      It has a lot to do with the giveaways and the treasonist media. I’m guessing that our side (conservatives: true liberty lovers!) may never win another election. It was a good ride while it lasted, but as we all know, all empires tumble at some point.

      To those in other countries who were cheering our demise, I just have one thing to say: Be careful what you wish for!!!

  • Gary2

    This is why I voted for Obama–Tax the rich and spread the wealth. It will happen. Finally!

    President Barack Obama, laying down his marker for grueling budget and tax negotiations, said Friday he won’t accept any approach to deficit reduction that doesn’t ask the wealthy to pay more in taxes. “This was a central question during the election,” Obama said in his first post-election comments on the economy. “The majority of Americans agree with my approach.”

  • Gary2

    Sorry rich people. The guy you spent billions on lost so no tax breaks for you. Pay up now. What’s another 4% out of your paycheck after wasting $300,000,000 on Karl Rove!?!?

    I am so sick of the whiners about the wealthy paying a small percentage more. They have benefited the most from our economy. When Reagan took office the top tax rate was 70%, he lowered it to 50% which did result in fair amount of stimulus effect because it was such a large difference. The top rate now is 36%, right? So I do not see what everyone is complaining about. IF cutting taxes on the “top” is supposed to create jobs and stimulate the economy and the Bush tax cuts have been around for years – WHERE are the jobs those folks are supposed to have created??? Job growth under Bush was 0.8% WITH his tax cuts. Not much bang for your buck in my opinion…

  • Mondobeyondo

    Well folks, looks like we’re going to be in a bigger Mess than ever now. The Obama White House, and the Democrats in the Senate (aka “Jackassic Park”) have been given a free pass by the American people, to plunder, rape and pillage what’s left of this once great country.

    Short of impeachment, there’s nothing that can be done about it now. The deficit will explode. $17 trillion, $18 trillion, $23 trillion… Obama won’t care. In 2016, it’ll be someone else’s problem. More jobs will be outsourced. More freedoms will be taken away. A police state? Why not?! We all have to be “safe” and “secure” in “the land of the free”. Why, look how many terrorist attacks the TSA has prevented! Zero, zilch, nada. Obama, our national hero! Preventer of terrorism, and killer of Bin Laden! Make room on Mount Rushmore for someone to carve his image! (ewwwww.)

    He probably won’t bomb Iran though, at least not yet. The only saving grace is, he’s not likely to do something that wouldn’t look good on the list of All Time Greatest Presidents, and since Abraham Lincoln is his hero, Obama would love to be compared to him. (Fat chance.)

    His campaign slogan was “Forward!”. We are about to go Backward, because Obama has the gear stick set to “reverse”, and he’ll tell you to just turn around and face the rear window while we all go “Forward!” And of course, everyone will oblige. The American people won’t know the difference. They were dumb enough to vote for him…

    What a sham… I mean shame. If we’re lucky, he’ll be caught with his pants down (literally) with a White House intern. Don’t get your hopes up though. Obama’s smarter than Clinton was.

  • God Save the Queen

    To the citizens of the United States of America from
    Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

    In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.

    Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas , which she does not fancy).

    Your new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

    Congress and the Senate will be disbanded.

    A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

    To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

    (You should look up ‘revocation’ in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

    1. Then look up aluminum, and check the pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it.

    2. The letter ‘U’ will be reinstated in words such as ‘colour’, ‘favour’ and ‘neighbour.’ Likewise, you will learn to spell ‘doughnut’ with out skipping half the letters, and the suffix ‘-ize’ will be replaced by the suffix ‘-ise’. Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up ‘vocabulary’).

    3. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ‘like’ and ‘you know’ is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as US English. We will let M*crosoft know on your behalf. The M*crosoft spell- checker will be adjusted to take account of the reinstated letter ‘u’ and the elimination of -ize.

    4. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

    5. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you’re not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can’t sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist then you’re not ready to shoot grouse.

    6. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. A permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

    7. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables.

    Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

    8. The Former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline)-roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.

    9. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

    10. The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting Nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of British Commonwealth – see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat’s Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

    11. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialogue in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one’s ears removed with a cheese grater.

    12. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body Armour like a bunch of nancies). Don’t try Rugby – the South Africans and Kiwis will thrash you, like they regularly thrash us.

    13. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America . Since only 2.1% of you are aware that there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries.

    14. You must tell us who killed JFK. It’s been driving us mad.

    15. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty’s Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

    16. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 pm with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

    God Save the Queen.

  • El Pollo de Oro

    I didn’t call this joke of an election when I predicted a 2-3% victory for Mitt “Wall Street” Romney. It was actually a 2% win for Barack “Goldman Sachs” Obama. I was wrong. But I did predict a 50-state victory for The War Party, and sure enough, The War Party will continue to rule The Banana Republic of America (formerly Gli Stati Uniti) as we slide deeper and deeper into the corporate/fascist Third World abyss. Many Democraps are dancing with joy, while Republi-cons are saying ridiculous things like, “Boo hoo hoo. We lost our country. The socialists have won.” No, this isn’t “socialism.” Try fascism. The merger of state and corporate power, as Gerald Celente so eloquently points out, is called fascism. This isn’t “socialism,” “communism” or “Marxism” any more than it is “capitalism,” “free enterprise” or “rugged individualism.” This is raw, naked, vicious, jackbooted fascism, also known as corporatism (as defined by none other than Mussolini himself). And regardless of whether the Democrap or Republi-con wing of the War Party won during this farce of an election, the BRA’s fate had already been sealed long ago—sealed with the bailouts of Wall Street and the banksters, sealed with NAFTA (No American Factories Taking Applications), sealed with the poison of globalism, sealed with oursourcing. A Texan by the name of Ross Perot tried to warn us and globalism back in 1992 and 1993, but Americans didn’t listen. So the noose was placed around our necks, and that noose will only grow tighter and tighter regardless of which wing of the War Party is in power and has the authority to stomp us bloody.

    “The War Party has two wings: the Democrats and the Republicans. All others are outsiders, whose ability to storm the gates is ‘legally’ restricted by a nearly impassable series of bureaucratic obstacles designed to keep them out while still maintaining the ‘democratic’ illusion, i.e. the phony two-party system, which is in reality a single entity.” —Justin Raimondo, AntiWar.com

    “The policies of George W. Bush have been assiduously carried out, for the large part, by Barack Obama. Even figures like Dick Cheney have confirmed this.”—Chris Hedges

    “All the themes of incipient fascism are present, to some degree, in our present-day political culture: the fear of the Other, the need for a (powerless) scapegoat, including the theme of expansionism. ”—Justin Raimondo, AntiWar.com

    “It is easier for a political party to attain national ballot status in Russia today than it is for the Libertarian Party or the Green Party to get on the ballot in, say, Pennsylvania.”—Justin Raimondo, AntiWar.com

    “When the President spoke of voting as ‘revenge’ the other day, the wimpish girlish Republicans immediately started up a chorus of whining—one reason why they’re such losers, and why they deserve to lose.”—Justin Raimondo, AntiWar.com

    “Voting for the ‘lesser evil’—or failing to vote at all—is part of the corporate agenda to crush what is left of our anemic democracy. And those who continue to participate in the vaudeville of a two-party process, who refuse to confront in every way possible the structures of corporate power, assure our mutual destruction.”—Chris Hedges

    “You can sum up what has killed capitalism in four words: too big to fail.” —Gerald Celente

    “They call it campaign financing. That’s White Shoe Boy language for bribes and payoffs.” —Gerald Celente

    “Institutions like Goldman Sachs are criminal enterprises.”—Chris Hedges

    “The United States has collapsed economically, socially, politically, legally, constitutionally, and environmentally.”—Paul Craig Roberts

    “Look at this guy Akin saying that if you get raped, you’re not gonna have a baby. I mean, come on with this stuff. Look at the quality of people who are running this country. I’m sick of it. I’ve had it.”—Gerald Celente

    “George Orwell would be shocked if he saw what was happening. It’s far greater than he could have ever imagined.”—Gerald Celente

    “A decade ago, the Bush regime demonstrated that it could over-ride US statutory law, the US Constitution, and the constitutional separation of powers in order to concentrate unaccountable power in the office of the president. The Democrats, when they gained control of Congress in the mid-term elections, did nothing about the unprecedented legal and constitutional crimes of George W. Bush. The Democratic Speaker of the US House of Representatives, who could easily have impeached George W. Bush for his obvious crimes against US law and the US Constitution, announced that impeachment is off the table.’ Money was more important to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi than the rule of law.”—Paul Craig Roberts

    “The Nuremberg Trials of Germans after World War II established that naked aggression is a war crime. Naked aggression, renamed by Washington, ‘preemptive war,’ has become the operative principle of US foreign policy.”—Paul Craig Roberts

    “One of the engines of spending is militarism and empire, and (Obama) enhanced it.”—Ron Paul

    “These globalists hate humanity and enjoy ugliness and pain and raw power. They love raw power so much.”—Alex Jones

    “Iceland didn’t bail out the banks. They bailed out the people.”—Gerald Celente

    “Americans like to believe that the rest of the world looks up to us, but the truth is that the rest of the world is laughing at us.”—Michael T. Snyder

    “The concentration of wealth and power in the US today is far beyond anything my graduate economic professors could image in the 1960s.”—Paul Craig Roberts

    “We are well on our way to seeing our great country move toward an oligarchic form of government, where virtually all economic and political power rest with a handful of very wealthy families.”—Bernie Sanders

    “Whereas the conservative middle class once cheered the circumscribing of the federal government, it now celebrates power and adores the central state, particularly its military wing.”—Lew Rockwell

    “For many, the American Dream became a nightmare long ago. It’s little wonder that Americans are afraid and angry.”—Michael Fumento

    “The New York Fed is one of the linchpin crime syndicate hubs. Timothy Geithner comes out of that crime syndicate.”—Max Keiser

    Benvenuti, americani, al fascismo. Benvenuti, americani, alla Italia di Benito Mussolini, Il Duce. Questo paese é divenuto un paese fascisto. The ghosts of Il Duce, Franco, Pinochet, Juan Maria Borderberry and other fascistsi are smiling because the BRA is now a banana republic on so many levels. And the Democraps and Republi-cons are both complicit in this Orwellian criminality.

    Che dio ci aiuti. In other words, God help The Banana Republic of America, land of the corrupt and home of the desperate.

It’s fun to watch the asshole Republi-Cons crawling around on the floor in agony (couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of guys) and the Democraps gloating and kicking them in the gut when they’re down. Here in Philadelphia (which hasn’t elected a GOP mayor since the 1950s), people are jumping up and down and acting like the Phils just won the World Series, the Eagles just won the Superbowl and Philadelphia Union just defeated Real Madrid, FC Barca or AC Milan 6 goals to zero. OK, let them have their sugar high. But as Michael T. Snyder often reports on this blog, Alex Jones often reports on Infowars and Gerald Celente often reports in his Trends Journal, the problems facing The Banana Republic of America and other UN-developing countries run very deep. The BRA’s appointment with the Grim Reaper will go ahead as scheduled. God help us.

  • SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE

    HERE IT COMES ARE YOU READY!!So what, exactly, makes up the fiscal cliff?
    Automatic spending cuts
    Since Congress failed last year to reach a bipartisan debt-reduction deal, the Budget Control Act requires automatic spending cuts to commence on Jan. 2 that will amount to $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction over 10 years.
    Defense: $55 billion will be cut in 2013 from projected levels of discretionary defense spending. That translates into at least a 10% cut to every program, project and activity that’s not explicitly exempt.
    Nondefense: $55 billion will be cut from projected levels of nondefense spending, which includes things like education, food inspections and air travel safety. Budget experts estimate the cuts will result in at least an 8% cut to programs, projects and activities.
    Bush tax cuts
    The Bush tax cuts, the eternal partisan trip-wire, are set to expire Dec. 31. And as a result:
    Income tax rates: Rise to 15%, 28%, 31%, 36% and 39.6%, up from 10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33% and 35%.
    Capital gains rate: Rises to 20% from 15% for most filers.
    Qualified dividend rate: Rises to one’s top income tax rate, up from 15% for most filers.
    PEP/Pease limitations: Restored. High-income households may not be able to take some itemized deductions and personal exemptions in full.
    Child tax credit: Falls to $500 per child from $1,000. The refundable portion also reduced.
    American Opportunity Tax Credit: Expires. The lesser value HOPE tax credit for college tuition is reinstated. Several smaller education tax benefits also expire.
    Earned Income Tax Credit: Expansion of eligibility for the credit expires.
    Marriage penalty relief: Expires. Effectively that means a low- or middle-income two-earner couple will owe more to the IRS than they would if they were single making the same income.
    Estate tax: Parameters revert to pre-2001 levels. The exemption level falls to $1 million from $5 million; and the top tax rate on taxable estates rises to 55%, up from 35%.

    AMT patch
    Expired already for 2012. Income exempt from the Alternative Minimum Tax in 2012 — for which taxpayers will file returns next year — falls to $33,750 for individuals and $45,000 for married couples. That’s down from $50,600 and $78,750, respectively, if the exemption amounts had been adjusted for inflation.
    As a result more than 30 million people will be hit by the so-called “wealth” tax, up from 4 million to date.
    Payroll tax holiday
    Expires. The Social Security tax rate reverts to 6.2%, up from 4.2%, on the first $110,100 in wages. Effectively, someone making $50,000 will pay another $1,000 in payroll taxes next year.
    Unemployment benefits extension
    The federal extension expires. That means workers who lose their jobs after July 1, 2012, will only receive up to 26 weeks in state unemployment benefits, down from as many as 99 weeks in state and federal benefits that had been available until recently.
    By one estimate, more than 2 million claimants will lose their benefits by January.
    Tax extenders
    A host of smaller individual and business tax breaks will have expired. A bipartisan bill from the Senate Finance Committee proposes to extend many of them, but it has not passed the Senate or House yet.
    Medicare doc fix
    Expires. Medicare payment rates for physician services drops by 27%.
    Other
    Some budget experts count as part of the fiscal cliff the onset of a new Medicare surtax on high-income households under health reform.
    But unlike the other fiscal cliff tax provisions, the new tax was not written into law as a wink-wink “temporary” provision. It is, however, included to reflect the magnitude of tax increases set to take effect simultaneously in 2013.
    A 0.9% surtax will apply to wages on earned income over $200,000 ($250,000 if married). That’s on top of the 1.45% Medicare currently owed on all wages. Those making between $200,000 and $500,000, for instance, will only pay about $633 extra while households making $1 million or more would pay another $11,242.
    A 3.8% Medicare surtax will also apply for the first time to at least a portion of high-income households’ investment income.NOW I KNOW WHY I CANT SLEEP OR IS IT SOME THING BIGGER???

    PEP/Pease limitations: Restored. High-income households may not be able to take some itemized deductions and personal exemptions in full.
    Child tax credit: Falls to $500 per child from $1,000. The refundable portion also reduced.
    American Opportunity Tax Credit: Expires. The lesser value HOPE tax credit for college tuition is reinstated. Several smaller education tax benefits also expire.
    Earned Income Tax Credit: Expansion of eligibility for the credit expires.
    Marriage penalty relief: Expires. Effectively that means a low- or middle-income two-earner couple will owe more to the IRS than they would if they were single making the same income.
    Estate tax: Parameters revert to pre-2001 levels. The exemption level falls to $1 million from $5 million; and the top tax rate on taxable estates rises to 55%, up from 35%.

    AMT patch
    Expired already for 2012. Income exempt from the Alternative Minimum Tax in 2012 — for which taxpayers will file returns next year — falls to $33,750 for individuals and $45,000 for married couples. That’s down from $50,600 and $78,750, respectively, if the exemption amounts had been adjusted for inflation.
    As a result more than 30 million people will be hit by the so-called “wealth” tax, up from 4 million to date.
    Payroll tax holiday
    Expires. The Social Security tax rate reverts to 6.2%, up from 4.2%, on the first $110,100 in wages. Effectively, someone making $50,000 will pay another $1,000 in payroll taxes next year.
    Unemployment benefits extension
    The federal extension expires. That means workers who lose their jobs after July 1, 2012, will only receive up to 26 weeks in state unemployment benefits, down from as many as 99 weeks in state and federal benefits that had been available until recently.
    By one estimate, more than 2 million claimants will lose their benefits by January.
    Tax extenders
    A host of smaller individual and business tax breaks will have expired. A bipartisan bill from the Senate Finance Committee proposes to extend many of them, but it has not passed the Senate or House yet.
    Medicare doc fix
    Expires. Medicare payment rates for physician services drops by 27%.
    Other
    Some budget experts count as part of the fiscal cliff the onset of a new Medicare surtax on high-income households under health reform.
    But unlike the other fiscal cliff tax provisions, the new tax was not written into law as a wink-wink “temporary” provision. It is, however, included to reflect the magnitude of tax increases set to take effect simultaneously in 2013.
    A 0.9% surtax will apply to wages on earned income over $200,000 ($250,000 if married). That’s on top of the 1.45% Medicare currently owed on all wages. Those making between $200,000 and $500,000, for instance, will only pay about $633 extra while households making $1 million or more would pay another $11,242.
    A 3.8% Medicare surtax will also apply for the first time to at least a portion of high-income households’ investment income. 16 TRILLION!!THE DERIVATIVES THE EUROPEAN MESS. LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT BABALON FALLS IN ONE HOUR!! OVER 6 BILLION CELL PHONES IN THE WORLD WE HAVE BECOME ONE LANGUAGE AGAIN.MY GIRL FREINDS DROID IS FASTER THAN MY BIG DESKTOP WTH??CAN YOU SEE WHAT IS COMING?”Now the whole earth had one language and few words. And as men migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, ‘Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.’ And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar. Then they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.’ And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of men had built. And the LORD said, ‘Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; and nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.’ So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.’ Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.” (Genesis 11:1-9)

    “Babel” is composed of two words, “bab” meaning “gate” and “el,” “god.” Hence, “the gate of god.” A related word in Hebrew, “balal” means “confusion.”

    Nimrod probably began to build his cities within a hundred years of the Flood. The confusion of tongues is usually thought to have occurred during the days of Peleg (Gen. 10:25). The chronology one derives from most English Bibles, which are translated from the Masoretic Hebrew text, places the time of Peleg only about 100 years after the Flood. This is probably incorrect. Barry Setterfield dates Peleg as living 530 years after the Flood, using the Vorlage Text and the Septuagint (LXX). See his Creation and Catastrophe Chronology. The dates computed by Setterfield seem to be a much better fit to what we know from archaeology and recorded history about the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Fertile Crescent Region. The world population at the time of the Dispersion at Babel may have been of the order of tens of thousands of persons.

    Babylon becomes, in history, the fountainhead of false religion in the Post-Flood world.NOW WHERE IS BAYLON TODAY?

    I do agree and feel dismay at the choices that the American public makes, but on the other hand they are in over their heads. They are in a cultural war, but only one side knows that it is fighting. It is absurd when people here say that Obama ruined the economy. No president has that much power! You don’t take a healthy economy and culture, and ruin it with a new president.

    Our economy and culture has been going down for at least two or three decades, and of course the roots go back further than that. It is two or three decades ago that it began gaining speed downhill.

    Why do all the knee jerk Republicans not remember that it was before Obama took office that we had a housing bubble, a collapsing economy, multiple FRAUDULENT and CRIMINAL activities by the highest financial institutions, and an unemployment crisis! Were they thinking the president has some sort of dictatorial and magical power over something as big as the American economy? It is absurd!

    Everything would have been great if we had elected McCain? Really?

    But the American people have had some choices, if they were less gullible and a little more intellectually curious. They could have learned more about Ron Paul. But I believe that Ron Paul could easily have won the presidency if not for the fact that the real powers in America don’t want anyone other than the Tweedledum and Tweedledee candidates to get in. Despite being ignored and marginalized by the mainstream media, he did incredibly well. In the end, people lost their nerve because they don’t want to waste their votes. If he had been treated fairly, he could have won.

    We even had Ross Perot. Remember him? He warned us what would happen to our jobs under NAFTA. Why didn’t people vote for him?
    I am listening to an audio book by Peter Schiff, called The Real Crash. This is quite an eye opener. Despite I’m very liberal and he is conservative, he has taught me quite a lot and I have seen things in a new way. He predicted all this back in 2006. It has nothing to do with Obama. The roots go back 100 years. McCain wouldn’t have solved it, Romney wouldn’t have solved it. Kennedy tried and you see what he got for it.

    It’s really time for people to stop blaming their fellow citizens and figure out who the real culprits are. Like, our media is now owned by 6 people. Monopolies used to be against the law. Does anyone here think that having the public access to information controlled by a very, very small club still means we have a free press?

    Doesn’t everyone here realize that without a free press we don’t have a real democracy? These are basic concepts.

    The problems run way deeper than who sits on the throne.

  • phelps

    Michael this is your best work I’ve read.

    Gay veteran: excellent comment.

    Ron Paul was the answer to the nations ills. His ideas would have gotten us out of this mess. Even several business man on Fox of all places said Paul would have been the most business friendly candidate. Paul would not bail out industries that suck. He would have put an end to those who game the system.

    Paul was the establishments worst nightmare. Now the nightmare will be ours, will not end soon and end badly for most of U.S.

    Good day.

  • liberranter

    The American people have spoken.

    Nope, at least not as a collective. Even if they did, no one in power would have been listening. The outcome of this (s)election was determined long before the first (probably fraudulent) absentee ballot was ever cast weeks ago.

    While we can probably argue based on circumstantial evidence that the majority “have spoken” to the degree that they’re enthusiastically choosing socialism, their votes on the matter are irrelevant. Since socialism, fronted by a figurehead sock puppet who is a member of an “oppressed” minority is what suits the invisible power brokers, that is exactly what has been retained.

  • cannuck21

    Very good article Michael.
    Thought that readers might be interested in this short but excellent article by Pat Buchanan.This article along with your article are perfect incentives to start preping!!

    Is the GOP Headed for the Boneyard?

    After its second defeat at the hands of Barack Obama, under whom unemployment has never been lower than the day George W. Bush left office, the Republican Party has at last awakened to its existential crisis.

    Eighteen states have voted Democratic in six straight elections. Among the six are four of our most populous: New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California. And Obama has now won two of the three remaining mega-states, Ohio and Florida, twice.

    Only Texas remains secure—for now.

    At the presidential level, the Republican Party is at death’s door.

    Yet one already sees the same physicians writing prescriptions for the same drugs that have been killing the GOP since W’s dad got the smallest share of the vote by a Republican candidate since William Howard Taft in 1912.

    In ascertaining the cause of the GOP’s critical condition, let us use Occam’s razor—the principle that the simplest explanation is often the right one.

    Would the GOP wipeout in those heavily Catholic, ethnic, socially conservative, blue-collar bastions of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, which Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan swept, have anything to do with the fact that the United States since 2000 has lost 6 million manufacturing jobs and 55,000 factories?

    Where did all those jobs and factories go? We know where.

    They were outsourced. And in the deindustrialization of America, the Republican Party has been a culpable co-conspirator.

    Unlike family patriarch Sen. Prescott Bush, who voted with Barry Goldwater and Strom Thurmond against JFK’s free-trade deal, Bush I and II pumped for NAFTA, GATT, the WTO and opening America’s borders to all goods made by our new friends in the People’s Republic of China.

    Swiftly, U.S. multinationals shut factories here, laid off workers, outsourced production to Asia and China, and brought their finished goods back, tax-free, to sell in the U.S.A.

    Profits soared, as did the salaries of the outsourcing executives.

    And their former workers? They headed for the service sector, along with their wives, to keep up on the mortgage payment, keep the kids in Catholic school and pay for the health insurance the family had lost.

    Tuesday, these ex-Reagan Democrats came out to vote against some guy from Bain Capital they had been told in ads all summer was a big-time outsourcer who wrote in 2008, “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt!”

    Yes, the simplest explanation is often the right one.

    Republicans are also falling all over one another to express a love of Hispanics, after Mitt won only 27 percent of a Hispanic vote that is now 10 percent of the national vote.

    We face demographic disaster, they are wailing. We must win a larger share of the Hispanic vote or we are doomed.

    And what is the proposed solution to the GOP’s Hispanic problem, coming even from those supposedly on the realistic right?

    Amnesty for the illegals! Stop talking about a border fence and self-deportation. Drop the employer sanctions. Make the GOP a welcoming party.

    And what might be problematic about following this advice?

    First, it will enrage populist conservatives who supported the GOP because they believed the party’s pledges to oppose amnesty, secure the border and stop illegals from taking jobs from Americans.

    And in return for double-crossing these folks and losing their votes, what would be gained by amnesty for, say, 10 million illegal aliens?

    Assume in a decade all 10 million became citizens and voted like the Hispanics, black folks and Asians already here. The best the GOP could expect—the Bush share in 2004—would be 40 percent, or 4 million of those votes.

    But if Tuesday’s percentages held, Democrats would get not just 6 million, but 7 million new votes to the GOP’s less than 3 million.

    Thus, if we assume the percentages of the last three elections hold, the Democratic Party would eventually gain from an amnesty a net of between 2 and 4 million new voters.

    Easy to understand why Democrats are for this. But why would a Republican Party that is not suicidally inclined favor it?

    Still, the GOP crisis is not so much illegal as legal immigration. Forty million legal immigrants have arrived in recent decades. Some 85 percent come from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Most arrived lacking the academic, language and labor skills to compete for high-paying jobs.

    What does government do for them?

    Subsidizes their housing and provides free education for their kids from Head Start through K-12, plus food stamps and school lunches, Pell Grants and student loans for college, Medicaid if they are sick, earned income tax credits if they work and 99 weeks of unemployment checks if they lose their job.

    These are people who depend upon government.

    Why would they vote for a party that is going to cut taxes they do not pay, but take away government benefits they do receive?

    Again it needs be said. When the country looks like California demographically, it will look like California politically. Republicans are not whistling past the graveyard. They are right at the entrance.

    I do not agree period. The last President mess up everything
    He had eight years to fix it. But he left us in a mess period. Quit blaming Obama. He is and has been fixing this mess. Republicans didn’t mess up over tonight. It won’t be fix in four years. Majority knew that period.

    American presidential candidates are groomed for years before they become public knowledge. It’s probably all mapped out by the powers that be who is going to run, when, where and what time period. We really don’t select our candidates. They are pushed in our faces when their time comes up and financed by corporate mogules and we are then given the “privilege” to choose from A, B or C.

    So to say that we make our bed, in the political sense, and then have to sleep in it, really is not true. Very little choice is allowed us in this country anymore. We are manipulated through the media and led to believe that one will serve our needs better than the other. When in actuality none of them are serving the needs of the people. In fact none of them even care a hoot which is becoming more and more evident as time goes on.

    In politics who has integrity? National politicians with integrity are rarer than diamonds and local politicians at best are members of self-serving special interest clubs and at worst they are part of organized crime syndicates. In most cases the first priority is not to serve the people, it is to spin events so that they get re-elected or to raise special interest money to move up the political ladder. If you watched your local election ads I bet they were all accusing each other of something corrupt. With good reason I might add, it takes a crook to catch a crook. So who are you supposed to vote for when un-elected party heads lacking integrity insure that only corrupt people are placed on the ticket?
    Few would accuse most national leaders of having integrity. They are always promising things they know they can never deliver and once in office will not even try. There are many things they deceive the people about and cover up because they lack integrity. Most know our government is about bankrupt but only a few men of Integrity such as Ron Paul will dare to tell you the truth and then when they tell the truth they are mocked by the press who lack integrity.
    Now people who lack integrity will abuse their power and try to panic the people to support taxpayer bail-out after bail-out and the national debt will be gradually turned up on Americans like frogs in a pot. They are counting on us frogs not jumping out of the pot before our goose is cooked for the feasting pleasure of several thousand global elite.
    News media lies to us and spins news stories to promote the liberal views of their handlers and owners. Most of the reporters who have any personal integrity no longer work for main stream news media because they either got fired or could not advance.
    People in education only teach the politically correct views of the secular humanist establishment so children will never learn anything outside of the politically correct socialist agenda. Many people of integrity have long since left the teaching profession as well. Those of integrity that remain often find their career is at a dead end.
    There are two Americas in America but the one that now seems to prevail is the nation that is full of self centered lustful people without Integrity. Half of the nation is now doing whatever they can get away with and not what real Americans would be doing if they were still people of integrity.

    I found this comment on another site, and thought you might like to consdier it.!!

    “Before you start whining that liberals are ruining America with socialism, type in “Red State Socialism” on Google Images and take a minute to think about it. Some of the most republican states are actually the ones getting the most federal welfare money. I live in one of those states, and I work in healthcare so I can tell you firsthand – a huge portion of the people that come into our hospital rely on medicare because they cannot afford private health insurance and their employers don’t provide it. If these companies do not provide the insurance, it is ultimately the taxpayers who pick up the tab when people come into the ER (which is where I work). It is in our country’s best interest for every company to be required to provide health insurance. And again, its not the northeast which is the problem. The majority of welfare money actually goes to the midwest and the south, which are strongly republican.

    I am presrntly on travel in Europe visting several countries on business – and my EU friends ask me if America is going insane. They are very worried about the re-election of Obama, and are about as much in a state of disbelief as so many of us are back home.

    Literally every American I run into – whether on a plane, a shuttle, or hotel, claims they voted for Romney. Maybe I am living in denial, and maybe Obama won fair and square, but I’m not buying it. I simply can’t fathom how stupid the majority in our nation has become.

    We are having a business meeting when I get back in a couple of weeks to discuss our future hiring plans. Fact is, we cannot afford the cost of Obama care, and will likely not proceed with plans to bring on more staff. I do not believe most Americans understand just how devastating Obama’s policies are to small business. I have no doubt in my mind that the “official” unemployment rate will climb in just a few months to above 10 percent. Obama’s approach is either incredibly stupid, or, like some think, he is doing this on purpose to truly destroy our country.

    Most of my business is in Europe and the Far East, and now I am considering moving our company abroad. Never have wanted to do it. All I can say to the morons who voted for him is, good luck finding a job. Ain’t going to happen. Those of us who do the hiring will soon be posting what few job opportunities we have in ovcerseas newspapers. I worked a lifetime building this business, and I am not going to let President Moron tear it down through his utter hatred of free markets and capitalism. And again, for the complete asinine idiots who and voted for Obama – enjoy your food stamps while you can. I’d like to see you in a few years and ask you how your political genius worked out for you.

    Petition for Texas secession hits White House response mark By Brendan Sasso – 11/12/12

    The 2012 elections are over and the American people have once again spoken. Americans could have fired Obama in the 2012 presidential election but instead they have chosen a dictator that will bring more division and the fall of this nation within grasp. I am not saying that Romney would have turned things around in America, but there is one thing that is for certain, the lying sociopath in office that was just re-elected will try to finish the evil agenda that he was groomed for.
    It is amazing that the election was even close with all the deception and failed economic policy. That just shows how Americans have become a nation of non thinkers (Idiots) that just believe whatever they are fed by the socialist and elitist controlled main stream media.
    When you are heading for a cliff, if the driver can’t or won’t change directions you will still crash on the rocks below. We are heading for an economic cliff among other dangers but most Americans have blinders on. Removing Obama from the presidential office was only the first political step of many that should have be taken to save this nation, but that didn’t happen.
    Americans had a choice although not much of one and they have chosen to retain a budding socialist dictator. What the majority wants is what they will get. If you really do not know what you are voting for, you probably should not be voting at all. If you actually believed in the American system, you certainly would not be voting for those that will put you under elitist controlled world socialism and the tyranny that this will bring.
    Let me just leave you with some food for thought with a few of my own findings:
    I find the morals of many Americans become very revealing when they still choose to buy into the obvious lies and the hypocrisy of the Obama administration. When Obama ran in 2008, he said that his administration would be the most open and honest administration. What we got instead was the most corrupt, dishonest, closed administration in American history and anyone with an ounce of “Gray Matter” between their ears should realize that.
    I find it bedeviling that there is overwhelming silence from the pulpits of this nation about the evils of continuing the course that Obama is taking this nation. Do they really think they will have the free speech to preach the true gospel under politically correct tyranny? Maybe they do not even care since many of them do not even preach the gospel now? I think the vast majority of pastors already care more about offending one black sheep in their pews than keeping their whole flock out of the mouth of wolves. These shepherds are sacrificing their sheep on the altar of political correctness.
    I find it perplexing that people who want cheap energy, vote for people who always prevent cheap energy sources from being developed.
    I find it puzzling when people who expect government social benefits then vote for politicians that will destroy our free enterprise system and our economy that makes those social benefits possible.
    I find it to be the height of hypocrisy when the people who took an oath to uphold the Constitution become the very ones that carry out the tyranny that our Constitution was supposed to prevent.
    I find it to be insane that people who cannot find good jobs will vote for politicians that will insure that they will never have good jobs.
    I find it baffling that religious Americans that claim to believe that the church speaks for God on earth would still vote for a President that dictates immorality to their church.
    I find it to be disturbing when blacks and even Christian blacks that do not want to be judged by the color of their skin now vote for candidates based on the color of their skin. Apparently racism is alive and well in black Christian America.
    I find it unconstitutional that private banks would just print money and then use those dollars to buy up American debt. This will have the same effect on our nation as massive counterfeiting. It will weaken the dollar and if it they continue to buy up real estate notes they will eventually have financial control over most real estate in this country. (Robery)
    I find it to be a derangement syndrome when people who always talk about their ancestors slavery vote for a national party that keeps them under government bondage and brainwashed their race into aborting most of their future children.
    I find it to be self-destructive when those that became citizens of America legally, vote for politicians who will allow illegals to come in to underbid their jobs and ruin their ethnic neighborhoods with gangs and drug traffickers.
    I find it to be a conspiracy when a President can conceal his Marxist past and the Media will not investigate the truth about his past but will knowingly promulgate propaganda and disinformation.
    I find it unimaginable that a President would just leave four men behind to be murdered by terrorists in Libya when it was in the power of our military to save them. Those willing to help were ordered to stand down by the highest levels of our government. Then for weeks the American people were lied to about what happened in Libya and the mainstream media just enabled the lies. It seems a high crime was committed but they are doing their best to cover it up.
    I find that Americans that are enabling their own destruction must be suicidal. Now, in this election, we found the majority to be suicidal. This Obama administration now gets a blank check to murder this nation by Americans!
    It saddens me to realize that abortion, as a form of birth control, not in cases of the woman’s health or the act of a crime, but for the sole purpose of being a form of birth control, has robbed the country of a clearer path to economic well being and stability. I am amazed that about half of the citizens in this country are OK with this, and that half the country feels that this issue is of greater importance than the well being of the nation as a whole.
    After thinking about all this, why should Americans expect anything better than what the majority voted for on November 6th?

  • Anonymous Woman

    Do you know what I think really shows where we are as a nation? The fact that you do not have to take an IQ test to be a politician. We need intellectual people with good intentions. But no, we just let them do whatever they want. I don’t vote because I don’t even care anymore. You mentioned Obama is a conman. He is, but I believe he is just a puppet. This country was founded on hate, racism, and imperialism. Americans want “change” right? Well when most can’t even evaluate simple figures and calculate that what government doing doesn’tmake sense mathematically or see that they just get on stage an say simple things like “America is good” and speak so vaguely to the general public like we are stupid and aren’t waiting to hear more, when Americans ignore things like this or don’t have the ambition to get educated then America deserves everything that is coming.

    Talk about extremely flawed and programmed thinking! This article is poorly written. The use of the word “we” is about as wrong as it can be. “We” do not choose politicians, PERIOD. “We” do not give them anything, power or otherwise. “We” have ZERO power to allegedly do these things. To think that the so-called American People actually elect these “politicians” is just not true, PERIOD. It’s a LIE and YOU are buying it! This article is full of preconceived notions based on government propaganda. It astounds me that people write so many words and use most of them incorrectly.

    Nothing amazing about what Obama did. All he did was pander to all of the special interest groups which collectively is the majority.

    Gays and Lesbians, Hispanics, Blacks, Welfare Recipients, Food Stamp recipients, Unions, Government employees, etc, etc..

    10% of the population here, 10% of the population there… at the end of the day… it totals over 50%.

    I would like to say the best man won. I really can’t.

    I doubt Romney would have been better, and the Republicans have only themselves, collectively, to blame for the dismal choice of Candidate and pathetic line up of alternative candidates selection in the run up.

    But my beef here is with the author of this article.

    Sir…you are evidently strongly opinionated. You have fervent beliefs. Your writing is constantly about “I” and “me” and self promotion.

    According to you, your ideas are the right ones. We must watch the world crumble as you whine and whinge away in this forum spouting your wisdom as self evident knowledge of what should be done and how easy it should be to do so.

    Have you run for office ever ? Why not do more than sit in a chair and type words that appear on a page read by a few. You have a support base, judging by the many “fans” of this blog. Milk
    them for money. Get out and be more effective and effusive, if you can. There are credible ways of making change. Your blog is one, but it is meagre and read by a mere few. And trust me, after not reading it for a while and then coming back again to read it again, post-election, I was disillusioned to see just more of the same: whinging and moaning and arm chair solutions. I have none, but you sir seem to have them all.

    So, how about getting out there publicly and doing something about it?

    I challenge you…move your mass and do something positive. Actions speak louder than words after all. Get out there, in the system. Make a change. Who knows, maybe you’ll be successful.

    That is, if you have the balls and truly believe your ideas are right ?
