“Indecision is a virus that can run through an army and destroy its will to win or even to survive.” - Wendell Mayes
The 2012 Election is still a long way off, but already there seems to be weakness in the opposition to Obama. Newt Gingrich is the front-runner di jour but many of us seem suspiciously loyal to him at best. We seem to be willing to hear him out, but cautiously waiting for that bombshell to come around and make us all glad we didn’t publicly hitch our wagon to his experimental rocket. I personally like Newt, but I don’t believe he’ll survive the all out war Obama has been planning and funding for the past three years. It took too many people way too long to create the image of Barack HUSSEIN Obama. No freaking way are his political creators going to let him to just step aside gracefully like we all wish he would. Newt will be isolated from the pack and then eaten alive by Obama’s well funded, maniacal legions. Newt can’t rely on his Fox News love to go very far among the MSNBC crowd.
All signs would indicate that we’re poised for a glorious victory in 2012, but our own indecision may be exactly the spark that sends that victory instead to the devastating blaze of defeat. I believe Newt Gingrich would lead this country in a direction much more conducive to long term success than the buffoon currently residing on Pennsylvania Avenue, but what do we do if he doesn’t even get that far? What do we do if the mighty media succeed in their confusion riddled agenda? Right now, we’re making it pretty easy for them. We are doing exactly what we accused them of doing in 2008 and in 2004. In 2004, when Kerry was all but moving his furniture into the White House, we all accused the left and the media of using “anyone but Bush” as a policy. Every question they were asked received a dismissive scoff and a condescending “great, another FauxNews idiot.” Make no mistake, the fire that their antics lit under our butts in that election will be kissing the flesh of their misinformed glutes if we don’t learn from their mistakes and make some serious course corrections now. Of course we want all traces of Obammunism erased from the White House. We want ObamaCare and all of this administration’s absurd spending and reckless ineptitude soundly defeated. On that point we can all agree. The problem lies in the fact that we can’t seem to get our support behind one particular candidate. We keep holding out hope for this perfect image. That strong willed, charming, humorous candidate with an interesting but scandal free past and approachable mannerisms. That guy was elected in 1980, folks. He ain’t coming back. Now let’s get our heads together and stop letting the media tell us who to vote for and more importantly, who not to vote for.
We rely too heavily on the media for our opinions. Research the candidates. Form your own opinion. If Newt implodes under Obama’s pressure, we cannot be led to believe that it was catastrophic to any hopes of dethroning the Hopey-Changey-Sure-Is-Crazy media darling. Right now there are too many candidates to choose from. I understand that the field could possibly be narrowed by the end of tonight in Iowa, and that new candidates may be out there, just waiting to enter the race; but we had better get our list of demands ready and we had better be ready to vote as a strong, unified voice or doom awaits us. We can’t afford for the Ron Paul supporters to sit at home and waste their vote if their man doesn’t get the nod. If someone other than Gingrich ends up getting the endorsement, then we had better be ready with support and demands. Unwavering demands. Mitt Romney may be the candidate facing Obama in the polls next year. Could you look beyond his religious beliefs and vote for him? The left will convince you that doing so would be unfair. They will run aggressive ads; shocking ads that are aired during primetime to spark the most impact and discussion among families. Ads that insinuate voting for Romney would be hypocritical since we’ve been so judgmental of Obama’s heavily shielded religious beliefs. Are you strong enough to greet those absurd attempts at misdirection with fervent focus and determination? If Gingrich does get the nod, are you strong enough to withstand the onslaught of ads against the “old, white man?” They’ve already started. They’ve already begun the war of subliminal campaigning. Subtle references to “white-haired politicians” in the ‘hip TV shows.” Pithy dialog from the illustrious and never biased Jon Stewart. The seed of doubt was planted in our minds long ago. We have doubts about each one of the candidates on our side of the playing field but an honest reflection of those doubts will reveal that most are based in sound-byte and hyperbole. Their mantra is the same. The ire we direct at the man who dares to consider himself a defender of our values is assuredly warranted.
In front of foreign audiences, he has denounced our collective belief in Christ yet outrage was contained. Billions of dollars wasted, yet he looks down his nose at us and acts as if explaining any of his wisdom to us peasants is a task that’s simply beneath him. When the election/battle finally erupts, we will not be given the same weapons they are given. The media is on their side and they are crafty little devils. They are armed with our loyal attention and they have become insatiable in their thirst for control over our thoughts. They will call you an extremist despite your calm demeanor. They will call you a redneck despite your superior education. They will call you a fear monger despite your proven logic and sound reasoning. They will misrepresent facts and twist numbers. You will not see an honest representation of economic figures between now and the election yet we must fight with the facts as we know them We must collect our energies, share them amongst ourselves and win. There is not a candidate alive who meets every requirement we all have of them. It’s impossible. To waste your vote rather than vote for someone who may wear different undies than you is absurd. If this country ends up under the Chinese flag, it will be YOUR fault! Let’s get it together and form that alliance. Above all else, Obama must be defeated. That is a simple fact but we are not going to fight the same battle the left fought in 2008. We’re not going to cast our vote for someone with inflated credentials, fictional backgrounds, and a “feel-good” army of misinformed idiots demanding their equally misinformed candidate be placed in office. We’re not going to deploy the biggest use of the race card in history, and yet we are still going to win. We are going to win because hype fades. Obama has outlived his hype. He has proven that he can’t deliver the things his voters believed he would deliver. The support he had in 2008 dissolved the second his fan-base realized they still had to pay their bills despite their messiah landing the presidency. The man has been over his head since his inauguration but his vote alone did not land him in office. The hype machine must be silenced during this go-round. When you encounter one of those people that get their news from Jon Stewart and Matt Lauer exclusively, those poor souls who seem to be “on the fence” when it comes to almost any issue…….it is your civic duty to feed them with so many facts that they can’t possibly vote for the current regime.
They hype machine obviously works on both sides of the aisle. Unfortunately, we are usually the recipients of negative hype, but it is hype nonetheless. We were told McCain was too old to lead despite the fact that McCain wins any physical contest between himself and Obama. McCain wasn’t elected because he was street-rat crazy. While we didn’t believe a word out of Obama’s mouth, we couldn’t wholeheartedly throw our support behind McCain either. Not even with Governor Palin in the fray. The media insured that we saw McCain as a dangerously old and feeble man and Palin as a twit, but we didn’t elect him because he just didn’t convince us he was worth going to the polls for. How do you feel now? Would you vote for McCain if the election was held tomorrow? Already we’re hearing disparaging remarks about Gingrich’s wife. “She may only be 45, but her penchant for boxy suits, pearls, and that gleaming helmet of peroxide…..” from Tamara Abraham. These are the same people who have tried for the last half-decade to convince me that Michelle Obama is attractive, athletic, and “fashion-forward”, whatever the hell that means. Michelle Obama looks like Terrell Suggs in drag. Plain and simple. She’s not pretty. She’s not elegant, or charming, or passionate. She’s just there. Unlike her doppelganger, she has no presence; no command. I guess neither is required when they can just get created for her. Do not get distracted.
Think about this for a few seconds……we keep hearing so much about the “courage” and “collective voice” of the Occupy Wall Street bunch. Media continues to blast capitalism as if they put all those commercials and logos on their channel for free. But when logic is applied, as is so often the case, their arguments crumble. Capitalism works and we have to stop letting them convince the weak that the opposite is true. This year, 7.2 billion shopping experiences will occur at Wal-Mart. The earth’s population is approximately 6.5 billion. 90% of Americans live within 15 minutes of a Wal-Mart, making them more accessible than the US Postal Service. Wal-Mart paid $7.1 billion in taxes last year, yet during that same period, the combined tax liability of ALL Wall Street protesters was negative $250 Billion. (Okay, so that’s the total amount of money refunded by the IRS in 2010. The conservative in me wouldn’t allow that one to just dangle out there!) I guess a better argument, and one more closely based in fact, would be to tell you that the top 25 companies in the US paid an average of 25.4% of their income in taxes last year. Meanwhile, the majority of those people who split the $250 billion refund pot are now sleeping in tents, pooping in streets, and demanding more free stuff. We are literally paying these people to piss us off. It has got to stop. We should be studying every move Wal-Mart has ever made. They have operated at maximum efficiency and they have expanded in ways the US Government couldn’t duplicate with 100% tax rates and mind control. Stop letting the media dictate how we live our lives. I don’t give a warm Texas cow-pie what Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton think and I sure as hell don’t care about who will receive their vote. They’re morons yet more people can identify them than John Boehner.
The office of the President of the United States of America is about so much more than the man who wears the title. We’ve forgotten that, it seems. We’ve forgotten what is really at stake when we cast our votes. It’s not a popularity contest. We’re not asking for someone who looks good on TV, and gives good speeches. We’ve got one of those already. If your candidate doesn’t end up getting the nod and you end up staying home on election day in some kind of self-serving protest, I think I should be allowed to come to your home and punch you. If you stay home and Obama wins…….I’m bringing Mr. Suggs with me! The President of the United States is supposed to represent America. I refuse to believe that Obama represents what we have become as a country, but a reelection would go a long way toward bringing that fear to reality. In the end, it is our responsibility to elect the man or woman we feel would best represent us. We owe it to ourselves and to the very essence of our democracy to vote for the person most likely to propel the interests of our country over those held only in his party, mind, or mysterious family. We owe it to ourselves to research beyond the media offerings catering only to our own beliefs. Be smart enough to fend off manipulation, and committed enough to inspire change in the minds of those left confused. We owe it to our children to show them that the celebrities they follow are not the characters they love. A candidate who talks down to them is just using them whether they’re teenagers or senior citizens. Most of all, we owe it to ourselves to VOTE!!
As always, thanks for playing.
