Progressives are ruining our country

Aug 17, 2015 by

I hate talking Politics as it makes me frustrated. Let me just say that I will be more than glad when President Obama is no longer our “lead from behind” leader. I am literally praying that the next Presidential election will bring us a President who can at least make a dent in undoing the tremendous damage Obama has done to our country and not do any additional damage. I love the breadth and diversity of the Republican Party’s candidates. Any one of them would make a good President, while a few of them would make a great President.

On the other side of the table we have the Democratic Party with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, or possibly Joe Biden or God help us Al Gore. Three old white males and an old white lady. What happened to the diversity of the Democratic Party? Hillary is a pathological liar who thinks she is above the law and can do anything she wants. Bernie Sanders is an outright Socialist. Joe Biden is a pervert and just plain a creepy person. And as for Al Gore, he belongs in a mental institute.

Do I sound partisan? You bet. I have always been a right leaning conservative. But I have been almost as disappointed in the Republican Party as I am disgusted by the Democratic Party. The voters gave the Republicans decisive victories in two elections, giving them a majority in both the Senate and the House. Have things changed any for the better since then? Nope.

With Republicans like John McCain, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner having a stranglehold on Congress, there might as well not be a Republican Party. I almost wish Donald Trump would run as an independent but I am afraid it would punish the country much more than it would teach the Republican party a lesson if a Democrat won the Presidency again.

Am I hopeful for the future of our country? I have to be or I would become permanently despondent. I think Ted Cruz or Mike Huckabee would make a good President. But my real hope for the future lies in my faith and the promise from God that evil will be defeated in the end. The Bible promises us that in the end, good will win out over evil, and evil will be defeated — finally and completely. It tells us that “in keeping with (God’s) promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13).

So I pray for our country and our leaders every day and I hope you will too.

Politics of Fear used by Obama to push his Stimulus Bill

Feb 5, 2009 by

President Obama has resorted to the very “politics of fear” he ran against during his campaign to scare Washington into ramming his massive, ineffective, debt-stimulating plan through Congress.

And if nothing is done, this recession might linger for years. Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse. By now, it’s clear to everyone that we have inherited an economic crisis as deep and dire as any since the days of the Great Depression. – President Obama

If comparing the current economic crisis to the Great Depression and saying the crisis may never reverse isn’t fear mongering, then I don’t know what is. And despite Obama’s campaign promise to work more closely with Republicans, so far not  many Republican proposed changes have been added to the stimulus package. Republicans and some conservative Democrats have expressed the need to reduce spending in the measure, to add tax cuts and reduce the cost of mortgages. So far the only concession made to Republicans is the addition of a tax break for homebuyers.

The stimulus bill is also laden with tens of billions of dollars earmarked for “pork barrel”  spending intended to benefit constituents of many of the politicians in Washington. Pork barrel spending was also something Obama campaigned against during the election. There are 34 new programs in the bill, new programs that don’t go away after two years. That’s $200 billion in entitlements. That money isn’t stimulus and it’s just going to add to the debt.

Despite bipartisan concerns about the cost of the package Republicans have failed to win any cut backs on the bill’s size. Instead of “reaching across the isle” to work with Republicans on the stimulus bill, Obama is using scare tactics to try to force through a bill that does not take into consideration legitimate bipartisan concerns.

As far as I am concerned, unless someone can show me statistics that prove that last years bailout package had any favorable impact on the current economic crisis, I don’t see why there is such a rush to push through the current  stimulus package. President Obama needs to keep his campaign promises and do away with the fear mongering and truly work with the Republicans on an effective stimulus package that reflects both spending and tax cuts.
