If we don’t listen….we’re doomed.

So many thoughts have been running through my mind since mid term elections occurred almost a week ago. I attended our county’s executive committee meeting this past Saturday-many victorious winners were there, high-fives were given, congratulatory praises were sung and even those who came up short had grins on their faces-because “we” won….for the most part.
I spoke with my mother the day of the election….and I was concerned. Why….because I knew that a Republican “win” was not a win for Republicans, it was a vote against our rogue president. The Republican party did not run on it’s platform….because I believe it’s platform has become convoluted and skewed…almost at times hard to decipher from that of the Democrats agenda. This is not a knock against the Republican candidates that unseated so many democrat incumbents, I couldn’t be more proud but WHY they won is up for debate.
After all the hoopla simmered down, the meeting took a different turn than expected. Many in the room who held elected positions expressed their concern for the Libertarian candidates that stole votes. “Don’t they know that voting for a Libertarian is throwing their vote away” I heard many argue! “We wouldn’t have lost State House seats, if it weren’t for the Libertarians” many voiced! The cheer in the room turned to contempt with many looming questions.
I didn’t have questions….I knew why….and I know that the Libertarian movement is only going to grow as our President acts more and more like a King.
Will Libertarians become the new dominating right of center party? No. Could they push for a much greater divide among Conservatives, yes-without a doubt.
I believe in the next two years we are going to witness Executive overreach by our president like nothing before. Shoot, when you have nothing to lose….go all in, right?
Obama has already waved his Executive pen wildly in the face of the American people and he is set to do it again. An additional 1500 troops are being sent to Iraqand Syriato assist against the Islamic State. He is doing this all without congressional approval…which technically makes it illegal. Obama is soon set to declare amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants without congressional approval- not adhering to the voice of the American people-because congress IS our voice.
But here’s the deal….Obama is not the first to push his executive orders on the American people, this has been going on since the beginning of the presidency. I do believe that Obama’s executive orders (those pending and those in play) will have a greater impact on the daily lives of the American people-with much more at stake, which in turn will cause greater division among the American people.
This division is going to have millions throwing their hands in the air, angry that their voice is not being heard! I believe that the actions that our president will take, could quite possibly cause for a revolt.
Why do people vote Libertarian, because they hate what they see in BOTH parties.  What is the Libertarian’s cry? It is a plea for less government intrusion, less government overreach, and definitely LESS EXECUTIVE orders.
If Republicans really want that Libertarian vote….than you have to realize changes must be made. The Establishment must bend its knee to the cry of the people. The emphasis of our Party must be LESS government overreach, IF we want that Libertarian vote.
We have to make our Conservative cause so clear and separate from that of the Democratic Party. There has to be less picking and choosing of when we want Government up in our business and when we don’t.
The two years ahead to 2016, is an uphill battle….but it’s in battle that leaders emerge and it’s in times of uncertainty that innovation is birthed.

My prayer is that we take this opportunity to display our strengths as party and not our likenesses to our opposition.

Top 10 reasons on why I am voting Republican in this mid term election and why you should too:

Top 10 reasons on why I am voting Republican in this mid term election and why you should too:
1)      You don’t want to have your head chopped off. Yeah I thought I’d lead with this one. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but it’s crazy out there! Obama has requested a 500 billion funding cut to our military in the budget for the 2015 fiscal year. I get we now fight with drones and rarely boots are put on the ground but this is not an area to cut! We need to first and foremost protect the American people and a strong military provides this! This money could be used in advancing our military technologies. I can safely say our foreign policy under this Democrat president and senate has blown! Other countries have made it clear that they do not respect us, by killing innocent Americans in the Middle East, and taking over regions in the Eastern Europe. If Americais weak, this is a threat to the world.
2)      You don’t think that you should spend money you don’t have. It sounds simple doesn’t it…..I mean common sense, but the Dems don’t see it this way. Spend spend spend and let the future generations deal with the consequences! The National Debt was at 7 trillion when Obama took office a little over 5.5 years ago and it has now way more than doubled….yes….our national debt is now a whopping 17 trillion dollars!!! We are using money we do not have!!! That’s crazy insane! With China now being the worlds largest economic producer and we (the United States) greatly in debted to China….they just might not need us like they have, what happens when they come to collect their debt??? Voting for a democrat to handle your money is like giving a teenage shopaholic a credit card with no limit….ummm nutso!
3)      You think that every life matters and Every woman should have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Men too of course J  But this is specifically directed at all those “war on woman” chicas. Science alone says that conception produces life, therefore the LIFE growing in the womb (of a woman who wants that life or whether she doesn’t) has a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If we are all about “choice”….let’s allow a choice to be given to the life hidden behind a veil of skin.
4)      You are not a fan of the Government being up in your bizness! Ughhh…for real. Our 4th Amendment rights, clearly are in place to protect our own individual privacy.  The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause. I don’t know about you, but I am not cool with the government violating this…and they are! The NSA has snooped through private phone calls, emails, etc…of normal Americans without any probable cause. Sure I am fine with them taping some crazy wacko potential suicide bomber, but they do not need to hear me talking to my husband, mom or friends….it is a total violation and a complete overreach of government and it has happened under Obama’s watch.
5)      You believe America is a sovereign nation. I know, I know sounds simple right, but for some reason our current administration is having a helluva time understanding sovereignty. It’s a simple idea really, the United States is an independent nation, governed by the American people under the framework of the Constitution. Sovereignty is essential to our Independenceand freedom as a nation and as individuals. Not securing our borders, creates an un-sovereign state, creating a total mess and from this mess develops a government controlling the people and not a government controlled by the people. If you want to be a citizen of the United States…that’s awesome, for real, but you have to follow the path to citizenship that is in place.
6)      You believe that every child is different and learns differently; therefore they should have the choice to go to any school you see fit. It’s called School Choice and Republicans are in full support of it. “Well kids will just leave the bad schools and go to the good schools,” is the argument I am hearing and I reply with: “So you would have these kids stay at the bad poorly ran schools?” Competition produces the best and we want the best for our kids.
7)      You believe that the government should not be involved in what healthcare or doctor you choose.Ahhhh the infamous Affordable Care Act, pushed through congress without a vote. You are young and don’t have the money to spend on healthcare that let’s say someone in there 60’s may have…well that’s a bummer…but you still HAVE to buy it. Ya…I know this is America and supposedly all about freedom…but you are not allowed freedom to choose not to have healthcare, or else you are slapped with a hefty tax…I could go on about the AFA and perhaps I will in a future blog.
8)      You believe that lower taxes enable growth and that the government has no clue how to handle your money. I mean, clearly…they don’t know how to handle your money-I mentioned our insane debt early. Oh and just google: “the ways government wastes your money,” the results are devastatingly comical. Anywho…people, it’s basic economics 101, rich people/corporations (and yes corporations are made up of people-fyi) provide the JOBS (which we are lacking). When you tax the rich an insane amount, they no longer can provide the jobs. They simply pack up and produce their product in a country that has lower tax rates; this causes a ripple effect obviously. Corporations and the rich are not our enemy…BIG TAXES ARE!
9)      You are having a helluva hard time finding a job. 93 million Americans are out of work-yep….I know it’s nauseating. I argued with a woman saying that unemployment is at a new low-5.9%. Ya…it’s low, because that count only includes those still looking for work and those still taking unemployment. It does not count those who have totally stopped looking…because they came to the honest realization-there are no jobs. Ask yourself this, how could the unemployment rate drop if less people are now counted in the labor force? It can’t, but the main stream media thinks you are a total moron and won’t put two and two together.
10)  You believe poor people shouldn’t stay poor. That’s right, under our current Democrat Administration, the poverty rate has hit a 50 year record! 50 million Americans are living beneath the poverty line ($23,550 for a family of 4). That means 1 out of every 6 Americans is living in poverty. We sadly have over half of Americansnow receiving some kind of government assistance/aid and it’s still not helping the poverty rate-and it never will. This is creating a society dependent on government and when you are dependent you are not free. But dems have no problem keeping people dependent because that means more votes for them! It all connects….

I could go on….but these are my top 10 reasons on why I am voting Republican and I think you should to! Ballots come out next week, VOTE and tell everyone you know to VOTE and VOTE SMART!

"Those" Social Issues can Suck it for right now!

“Those” Social Issues can suck it for right now!
Well….I don’t know about you all but I just looked outside my window to the world and it’s crazy as hell out there! Yeah….insanity….I got a text from one of my younger sisters telling me to prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse! I of course laughed…but deep down those words resonated with me.
I don’t need to list off all the crazy nutso things going on in the world….the majority of the readers of this blog are educated people, so perhaps…you are also feeling a “little” or “a lot” fed up!
How did this all happen so fast….how did we get here? I sadly know how we got here and I know whywe are here.
In reality this complete chaos we are witnessing should be of no surprise to anyone because everyone (or the vast majority)…voted for it.
It was back in early 2008, I got in a huge fight with a young friend of mine when living in California. She was a highly educated, beautiful black, Christian woman and a strong supporter of Obama. Now I was truly the odd guy out, when living in Los Angeles…the minute it was known I was a Republican….I was attacked at all sides….but I have thick skin and I am one of seven kids….so I know how to stand my ground.
Her and I faced off and it was ugly….and we have sadly never spoken since. She believed Obama was our deliverer, even when I challenged her on abortion and how that played into her faith….she stood strongly by her candidate. She was not the only one obviously….Obama swept the nation with his swagger and celebrity type charm. His ability to speak was captivating….the mass majority hanging on his every word and believing those words held truth.
I have never been one to follow the crowd….ask anyone who knew me when I was in high school….I never once did anything because everyone else did, it’s not in my nature. Something just didn’t sit right with me when I heard Obama speak….I was uneasy and wary. Trust me I was NO fan of the McCain/Palin ticket though, I was angry that’s all the Republican Party could come up with…I mean seriously…seriously!??
How did we get here? Well we got played for fools. We didn’t research to find out what Obama stood for, we didn’t look into who he admired and studied under (Saul Alinsky) we didn’t pry, we didn’t question record, and we didn’t put him up against a real contender.
But our biggest fail as a party is we have allowed Specific “Social Issues” picked by the other side, the ability to completely control the last two presidential elections!
Ya…I get they are important, but the last time I took a look around, there are a heck of a lot more pressing issues that need to be addressed asap! Like what you ask??….well I don’t know, let’s say for starters -the prevention of any more Americans having their heads chopped off, or the fact that 92 million Americans are out of work and no longer even looking for jobs (so those new job reports are total bogus fyi), or that our borders are totally insecure allowing terrorism and diseases to freely pass into our country harming Americans, or that we are being spied on without probable cause (a violation of our 4th Amendment right), or that Common Core education is strongly not desired by either side, but somehow we all gotta accept it, or that we are rapidly dropping worldwide in ranking in education altogether, or that 35.4% of Americans are on welfare, or that we are seriously failing our Veterans when it comes to caring for their health, after they have put their lives on the line for us, or that poverty is at an all time high (does that seriously not infuriate you!)….but no ….we allow the other side the ability to manipulate targeted Social Issues as our deciding factors when it comes down to election day and this….this…is our Epic Fail.

So while the Left focuses on sex changes for veterans (because to them, that’s all that’s important in the world right now), can we as a party focus on the NOW and all it’s insanity, can we be clear on policies and not let social issues control the BIG PICTURE!!!??? It’s time to play some offense! Is that too much to ask…is it?
