Your CRomnibus, just showed it’s true colors….

I am feeling a whole mix emotions, confused, disappointed and angry. After the #CROmnibus Bill passed the House on Thursday, I was so mad, I went and ran stairs for quite a while. I was so heated and furious!
What is the CR Omnibus Bill? Great question….it’s a bill that is over 1600 pages long, I am going to be honest, I haven’t had time to read it, but that’s not my job….it’s Congresses job and well they decided they didn’t want to read it either! Ughhhh….anyways, I did however read what this bill entailed:
The bill authorizes congress to spend over 1 Trillion, ya…you read that right a TRILLION on specific programs between now and October 2015, that’s not even a whole year-ONE TRILLION to spend in 10 months! Last time I checked we were over 18 Trillion in debt….so hey what’s another trillion? My almost three year old and 1 year old can pick up the tab right??!!!!
The Bill included halting the legalizing process of marijuana in DC, which was overwhelmingly voted in favor of in the midterms. I really am blown away that Republicans are wasting their time on marijuana…..I don’t smoke that stuff, but I personally think there is a helluva lot more to get bent over shape over and Mary-Jane ain’t one of them…..but that’s just me.
The bill also had budget cuts for the IRS, and EPA, so that’s good….but here’s the kicker-
Under the CR Omnibus Bill, Obamacare is still funded, which Republicans swore to D-E-F-U-N-D! Granted no additional funding is being given to the IRS and DHHS, which are the two big orchestraters to Obamacare, but there is nothing now in play to stop the funding of FORCED healthcare! I can literately hear Freedom, being suffocated…can you?
Also, the CR Omnibus Bill funds Obama’s Executive Amnesty in a way, because Republicans wanted to limit the funding to the Dept of Homeland Security, in order to delay the process of this illegal amnesty, that the King demanded. This funding will continue until February of 2015. So in other words….we are still funding it! Do you get that, we are funding an illegal order by the president, when we promised to stop it!
What’s even more infuriating is the House created this BILL! They could have broken it up….but instead they tied a bunch of crap into one bill to appease everyone so it will pass.
Oh but the government will shut down….ummmm…hey it’s happened before and we’ve survived!
Oh but the military was going to be shut down too, then exercise your 2nd amendment right geeez…. I think we can hold our own while we are …being held hostage on a vote that mind you “we” Republican’s created! Ughhhh this is straight up blackmail if you ask me….
Does it not disturb you that Obama was whipping votes to pass this and that Boehner asked him to?? Gag!
Here’s the deal, we were lied to. Our elected officials said one thing to us, to get elected but then after campaigning and elections are over -deals are being done behind closed doors, deals WE the people would never approve of!
Wherever the BIG money is HOW they vote….and this….this is wrong….and in my eyes criminal.
I gave them my vote, my support and they betrayed me.
Ya…ya….I don’t know the politics at play, I don’t know what it’s like to be a part of the DC elect…you’re right-I don’t.
But here’s what I do know.
I know that I elected my Congressman based on a set of principles. Those principles were not witnessed in this vote.
I know that if you are voting on a Bill, READ the Bill…yes the whole DAMN thing!
I know that I don’t want my kids to endure the debt that these elected congressmen and women are driving us deeper into.
I know that if we continue on this path, of bigger government, backdoor deals, this concept of “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours”….it is NOT about the people but about the politics. It’s not about the ones that sent you to Washington but instead about how you can get re-elected and hold your job.
I know that the system is corrupt, but this system is no longer the system it was intended to be. If our founding fathers were to witness what we have done to the Constitutional Republic of this great nation….they would be filled with great sorrow. I know that the voice of the people is no longer being heard and this cannot last. Political Representation was NEVER intended to be a career. In the beginning our representatives were, doctors, farmers, school teachers- who went to Washingtonto represent the people and then they returned home!
WE the People are no longer being represented….and this is causing great unrest.
I believe that a Revolution is at hand.
Why?
Because there are still those who cannot be bought, there are those who cannot be corrupted, there are those who hear the cry of America’s heartbeat and run! They run with passion, they fight fearlessly for freedom, they wake in the night burdened by responsibility, there are those who will SPEAK UP when others are silent, and there are those that hear the cry of the patriots before them and they will not let their work be in vain, there are those who will not surrender to the all powerful system at hand…..why….because corruption is evil, and in the end evil never wins. There are those who say “enough” and have had enough. You might not hear our voice now, but our numbers are growing.

I am a Conservative and here is why


I am a Conservative and here is why

I saw a clip of an interview with Dr Ben Carson a few days back that I posted on my 
Conservative Momma Facebook Page. He had the idea of not having an R, D or I next to the candidates name when voting in an election. He claimed this would cause people to actually do some research about WHO they were voting for and WHAT they were voting for, resulting in an educated vote. I love the idea….do I think this will every take place-unfortunately No. 
Republicans have allowed the mainstream media to define who they are-“old white dudes who hate women and homosexuals.” Well first off I am a woman, I am not old-I am technically a “millennial,” and I don’t hate homosexuals.  
Personally I think it’s gotten all clouded. It’s often hard to tell who is who when you look at the cluster F in DC.  I think it’s smartest to go back to core principles and values when figuring out where you stand…
Dr. Carson described himself as an “Independent” who leaned towards Conservative Values……well…I AM a Conservative and here’s why: 

1) I know it’s going out there on a limb these days but I Believe in the Constitution! I believe that our leaders are not exempt from following the constitution! The Constitution has seen us through 44 Presidencies, It has seen us through the exploration of the wild west, the abolition of slavery, the civil war, women’s right to vote, World War 1 and 2, landing on the moon, and all the while making the United States of America the greatest nation on earth…enabling the right to LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT of HAPPINESS. If you don’t like the Constitution feel free to move to another country that has bigger dreamers, entrepreneurs, risk takers, and world changers ….wait…you won’t find one! 
2) Limited Government! This country was founded by men and women escaping an over reaching government in England! I believe that the government is here to protect and provide essentials for every day life that enable the Individual pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. 
3) Every Life should have a say! Whether that life is in the womb still getting all sassified or old old old and ready to meet the maker! Often people want to get all technical on this issue-I personally believe that you are dead when your heart stops beating and I believe that you are alive if their is a heartbeat. That heart deserves a shot in this world and should be entitled to the same rights as you or I.   
4) Term Limits! I am a strong advocate for #termlimits in Congress…do your time, then get the heck out of there! Not all Conservatives hold this in deep regard but I do! It’s about the people not the politicians….so many congressmen and women have forgotten that we are their bosses and they work for us! 
5) Education-Since the Department of Education was formed in 1980, test scores and scholastic performance has declined! I believe in giving the power back to the states and parents! Why should some out of touch government bureaucrat be deciding what’s best for your child-they are YOUR child-YOU know what’s best- School choice is a must! 
6) I believe the government has completely overreached it’s boundaries in regards to our Personal privacy! No ONE should be spied on without probable cause! Giving up your civil freedoms for protection is enslavement based on fear-a decision based on fear will only further enslave. The violation of our Fourth Amendment that we are witnessing has got to stop! 
7) Second Amendment-it is our Right to keep and bear arms! If this freaks you out…get educated on guns…most who are terrified of them have never held one or taken the time to get informed on the issue! Again…don’t let fear…make decisions for you! I am fully aware that this is a touchy subject to many. I don’t believe though, that Law abiding citizens should have their rights limited because some wacko has gone off the chain. Un-arming law abiding citizens would only fuel the crimes of those who are lawless. 
8) believe that being Conservative means being fiscally Conservative and that is spending what you have, not spending what you don’t have hoping that somehow it’ll all turnaround. If you can’t afford it, don’t buy it. We have watched our Government spend spend spend….thinking that somehow it will all work out….well it doesn’t work like that. For example, if you have massive credit card debt do you keep spending, hoping that the credit card company will send you a letter saying…”hey it’s cool, you don’t have to pay us back,”…..fyi-that will NEVER happen! Our government has driven us deeper and deeper into debt-at some point our creditors will want to collect! STOP THE SPENDING!
9) I believe in Personal Responsibility, you and I are responsible for our own actions not the Governement. I know that the true War on Women is to limit a woman’s concerns to only that of the reproductive system. I am a woman and I will not be put in a box stamped “reproductive rights!” I am much more than that! My concerns, go far beyond what pills the government is buying for me. I am grown and I can do just fine on my own. I have the ability to challenge my government to bigger issues: job growth, school choice, my 1st and 4th Amendments being violated, a president that has violated the Constitution that he swore to protect, the sovereignty of our nations borders, our International influence…need I go on? So no….don’t you dare try to tell me that all I should care about is reproductive rights…to get my vote…mmmkay!
10) Less Taxes: Taxing the hell out of corporations as well as small businesses to the point that they have to close their doors, or move their production overseas…does not stimulate job growth….apparently our President has yet to grasp this seriously soooooo freaking simple concept. 
11) Lastly, I believe America is Exceptional. Not that I am exceptional, or that you are exceptional (though I do believe God’s creation’s have the ability to be exceptional) but that America and what this great nation offers is exceptional. America-though not perfect-has done more GOOD, than any other nation on earth. I will never apologize for being an American, and I do not for a moment take my citizenship for granted.  

and this is why I am a Conservative. 



The Old Guard

The old guard-

As I sat and heard speeches last week at our County assembly- the theme was ‘I have been in the game, I have held the office below the office I am now running for and it’s my turn.’
This was the same stuff I heard when my dad ran for United States Congress.
‘It’s my turn-I have earned this!’

Earned what exactly? What have you earned? This sense of entitlement runs deep in the Republican Party. Jumping from public office to public office declaring your service to the same ole delegates.
I actually heard a guy talk about how you don’t vote someone ‘new’ in, you vote the ‘back-up quarterback’ in (using trendy sports analogy-really got the majority of the white-haired voters riled up!)
I talked to another delegate and she told me how annoyed she was that young republican voters don’t want to be called ‘republican’s’ they want to be called ‘conservatives.’ As I heard her talk…I thought -ya, I am one of those young voters!
Being the youngest in the room at the age of 32…I see the problem…the question is how do we fix
 It?
You see we, the younger Republican/Conservatives have watched this country fall fast-this happened while Republicans-the establishment-continued voting in to office the ‘same old same old….’
We believe in the Conservative principals but not the political crap that we are seeing from our own politicians. Both Dems and Republicans have overreached their hands in our daily lives. We want our freedom back, we want men and women who are not jumping from public office to public office. We want people that know how the world works! Most people in office don’t even know how much a gallon of milk costs or have the ability to relate to the young businessman or young mom…they haven’t a clue… 

Let’s talk about about ‘earning’ it shall we….
I think this concept is what’s dooming us!
‘Earned it’-ughh!
How about the small business man that knows how the private sector works, who has the ability to create something out of nothing? Who has been successful time and time again over the past 30years-I think he has an earned a vote!
You see it’s this narrow minded way of thinking that repulses me. It’s this clicky high school mentality……ummm…this is ‘our group and we like it this way mmmkkay.’

Well you know what….I say enough! I say we begin to infiltrate this incestual group think!
Why are we letting the “mean” girls depict the direction in which our country heads?

The old way…clearly is not working! We need to get involved we need to fight for a change!
Get involved-don’t let the old ‘we’ve done it this way for 100yrs’ continue! 

This is why elections are being lost

 
Well, if you are wondering why we have stopped winning elections it’s because of things like this:
 
 
I just read a report that Rand Paul leads in the CPAC Pole…which I love because I have been a huge supporter of Paul for a while now. Ever since he filibustered on the whole Drones invading our personal privacies issue (which I blogged about a while back)- I have thought wow this guy might actually care about protecting the liberties of the American People.
I am so sick of politicians… talking… talking… talking… talking…..Paul is actually getting shit done!
 
So this is why I am annoyed….
 
According to the Drudge Report…people are complaining that Paul is too short and they don’t like his curly hair…
 
Yep…and that’s why I seriously feel like slapping your average voter-Republicans included!!!  
 
Are you kidding me…like are you for real???
 
This is why we are losing elections this is why our country is seriously in the crapper!
 
Hair texture….I am at a loss for words…..too short???
 
I don’t care for a second what his hair is like or how tall or short the guy is! Are we now dating potential candidates??
This is asinine!
 
This is like when you were a kid and asked your parent what color of jersey we should be cheering for when watching a sporting event!?!!!
Only sad part is we are NOT kids…this is serious people! This is the future welfare of our COUNTRY!
 
What I want is someone who DEFENDS the constitution! Goes to bat for the American people, believes that America is the greatest nation on earth and doesn’t apologize for it! Refuses to bankrupt America because they care too damn much about our future generations, defends life, understands the role of government and does not overstep it’s boundaries!
 
Too short….ughhhh…please!
 
The pretty boys can head to Hollywood…I want a fighter!
