What is the number one job of the U.S. government? Well, at this point the federal government in spending more time and money on redistributing wealth than it is on anything else. In fiscal year 2012, 62 percent of the federal budget will be spent on entitlements. How much farther do we have to go until everyone finally admits that we have become a socialist nation? Our government has become the largest engine of wealth redistribution in the history of the world, and the redistribution of wealth has greatly accelerated during the presidency of Barack Obama. Yes, wealth redistribution as a share of the economy also grew under George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, but Barack Obama has taken things to an entirely new level. Back when Ronald Reagan took office, less than 30 percent of all Americans lived in a home where at least one person was receiving government benefits. Today, an all-time record 49 percent of all Americans live in a home where at least one person receives government (Read More....)
Once upon a time, working for the federal government was considered to be a sacrifice and it often involved a significant reduction in pay. Millions of Americans felt that serving their country and making a difference more than made up for the reduced wages that they would receive. Unfortunately, those days are long gone. Today, the federal government is the place to go if you want a cushy, high paying job with tons of benefits. It is incredibly hard to be fired from a federal job, and if you stick around long enough you will be guaranteed a huge pension for the rest of your life. The laziness at some federal agencies is absolutely legendary. Trust me, I used to work in Washington D.C. and I have seen the mindset firsthand. Some federal buildings are absolute ghost towns at 5:01 PM. Hordes of federal workers are just putting in their time, collecting their fat paychecks and counting down the days until retirement. And members of Congress are some of the worst (Read More....)
The following is a joke that was sent to me the other day. I am not certain who the original author is, but it is quite funny. I think that it demonstrates the kind of mentality that Barack Obama and the other socialists in the government have right now....
After winning his latest gold medal, Michael Phelps got a call from Barack Obama. But it wasn't a call of congratulations. Rather, it was to remind him that he did not do it by himself....
"If you won a gold medal, you didn’t do that alone. There was a long line of government workers, food stamp recipients and drug addicts that swam those practice laps for you, and allowed you to get where you are."
In certain environments, conservatives often find themselves alone, dealing with a kind of alienation due to their political belief system. An academic Study that was co-authored by the Universities of Southern California and Virginia indicated that, while many conservatives understand the general liberal mindset, the same does not hold true for liberals when it comes to conservatism.
1. Ideology. Conservatives often face the fact that liberals do not seem to want to know what is behind their ideology. Thus, perceived notions, taken from media sound bites, are the order of the day. Often, gross stereotypes are portrayed of conservatives including homophobia, xenophobia, racism and judgmental bigotry. It is assumed that all conservatives wish is to ensure that the wealthy become more rich and that the poor and sick should die as quickly as possible.
2. Liberal bigotry. The frustrations that conservatives face regularly due to their political beliefs is in itself, a form of bigotry that is based upon ignorance. For example, in some instances, the participants in the UVA Study of over 2,000 Americans, were instructed to fill out their surveys as though they were a “typical” conservative or liberal.
On May 1st, protest marches were held in major cities all across America. In many instances, union workers marched arm in arm with radical communists. You see, the truth is that "May Day" is very important to communists, and they were out in full force to support their cause. But instead of shunning the communists, liberal activists greeted "their brothers and sisters" with open arms. The photos posted below are from a "May Day" march in California that were recently emailed to me by a friend. They are incredibly disturbing. They show workers from various unions such as the SEIU marching arm in arm with members of the communist party. Remember, the SEIU contributed nearly $28 million to Obama's campaign in 2008. That made the SEIU "the organization that spent the most to help Barack Obama get elected president." So the SEIU is very close to Obama. And to see Obama supporters marching in "solidarity" with their communist comrades in California is very disturbing.
The following are the photos that were emailed to me. Try not to get too sick as you look at them.
Sarah Palin or Jeb Bush could still win the Republican nomination in 2012 and become the next president of the United States. Really. In fact, Paul Ryan, Jim DeMint, Mitch Daniels and Chris Christie still have a chance too. How could this be? Well, it has now become clear that there is a very real chance that no Republican candidate will hold a majority of the delegates by the time the Republican convention rolls around. If that happens, that would mean that we would have the first "brokered convention" in decades. The truth is that the Republican establishment does not want this, but they are also scared to death of having someone like Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul as the nominee. So exactly what is a brokered convention?
The following is how Wikipedia defines a brokered convention....
A brokered convention is a situation in United States politics in which there are not enough delegates 'won' during the presidential primary and caucus elections for a single candidate to have a pre-existing majority, during the first official vote for a political party's presidential-candidate at its nominating convention.
Once the first ballot, or vote, has occurred, and no candidate has (Read More....)
It is absolutely mind blowing that any Republican would ever consider casting a single vote for Newt Gingrich. The truth is that Newt Gingrich is not a real conservative. He isn't even close. After he left Congress, he spent years portraying himself as a "progressive" and he devoted a lot of time and resources to promoting liberal causes. But now that he is running for office as a Republican again, all of a sudden he is trying to sound like a conservative. And it is fooling a whole lot of people. One recent poll had his support up to 38 percent. But a Gingrich administration would be a total disaster for America. A Gingrich administration would essentially be just about the same as a second Obama administration. That is how liberal Newt Gingrich is. Gingrich is a big time RINO ("Republican in name only") that is so liberal that he should actually be in the other political party. If you believe that Newt Gingrich is a real conservative and you plan to vote for him, then you are being incredibly foolish.
So what is so wrong with Newt Gingrich?
Well, for one he is for an individual health care mandate.
Republicans are supposed to be against Obamacare, and yet a huge percentage of them are supporting a candidate that was pushing an (Read More....)
