WHY OBAMA WON

When I was in elementary school, I ran for class president. I was pretty popular.  My opponent was obviously smarter.  In the auditorium we each had to give a speech.  I am sure this was some kind of lesson in politics.  Anyway, I went first normal political drivel, best man, you know me, work with teachers for more field trips, etc.etc.  My opponent on the other hand stood up and promised free coke machines.  This was in 1956!  He won by six votes.  Lesson learned.

Hillcrest elementary, San francisco.

 

So here we are today.  Obama just won reelection. Here is my take on why.

 

These are excerpts from what i heard.

Republicans and Conservatives

1.  He funds abortions.

2.  He gives away food stamps, disability and phones

3.  He is letting our enemies attack us with abandon

4.  He is a muslim, and not a nautrual born citizen ( I doubt most of you know the difference between citizen and natural born citizen)

5. He is putting us so far in debt our children can never pay it back.

6.  He wants to raise taxes.

7.  He supports gay marriage

8.  He wants to open the borders to all, taking away,jobs, increasing crime, and abusing our benefits

9. he lies

10. He wants to destroy our defenses

 

Here is a summary form the democrats…(remember free coke machines)

The Future Is Better Than You Think.

Unlike republicans who spend all their time fretting about social justice and the $16 trillion dollar debt that we have to let get bigger before we can pay it off,  we know that advances in technology will solve all of our problems. Food, water, energy, medicine — our capabilities have been rapidly improving on all of these fronts for decades and we’re on pace to advance even faster in coming years. With increased successful investments by our government, the only reason we don’t see how terrific our future will be is because of republican cognitive biases towards pessimism and gloom.
…Our brain’s filtering architecture is pessimistic by design…(and) good news is drowned out, because it’s in the media’s best interest to overemphasize the bad.
Therefore we tend to ignore the advances in robotics, nanotechnology, computers, genetically engineered crops, vertical farming, cultured meats, smart grids, and innumerable other technological advances that have put us on the cusp of taking a great leap forward as a species. We haven’t even touched on details about the extraordinary breakthroughs that we’re approaching: algae that can produce thirty times more energy than conventional biofuels per acre, computer assisted irrigation that will dramatically reduce the water usage needed for farming, autonomous cars that will reduce commute times and almost eliminate accidents, human body parts that can be grown as replacements for our worn out organs, and diagnostic advances that will allow thousands of dollars’ worth of medical tests to be done for pennies. These are exciting ideas that have the potential to uplift the lives of human beings all across the globe.   We need to keep moving FORWARD!
 
I will never forget free coke machines.

Ever Notice how much the root word “SOCIAL” has infiltrated our language?

 

 

So the point of this blog is to put a stake in the ground on the changing nature of America. 

Under OBAMA America will become more Socialist than ever before.  Notice how OBAMACARE has been embraced by him.  Unlike Hillarycare which was a way for republicans to denigrate national healthcare, the same attempt failed when he chose to wear the label as a badge of honor. 

Notice how one of the big economies is “SOCIAL NETWORKS”.  How Obama no longer argues he is not a socialist, but just lets the republican names drop to the floor.  We now have social everything and it is changing our lives.

Remember the first big socialist in history was Teddy Roosevelt.  Yes he was a RINO, and went on to give us income tax, break up standard oil, and lay pipe for Woodrow to give us the federal reserve, an incredible array of new government agencies, and paper money.

 

Then came cousin Franklin the so far most powerful and POPULAR socialist in our history.  In spite of every other president in history, always stepping down after two terms, he ran for 4 and got elected.  He was the reason we had to pass a constituitional term limit for Presidents.  My point is Americans LOVE socialism!  Go back and look at old papers this man could have ruled the world he was so popular.

As an aside, I know not how, but OBAMA will stay in power in 2016.  He will by proxy, or even some other butchering of the costituition.  Term limits only came in 1951, maybe they will argue to go back to the original consituition.  Or  perhaps there will be very close ties to the next candidate, and it won’t be Hillary.  He will give so much to “the people” that they will wonder how they lived before Obama.  His public support will continue to rise.

After 10 years of poor stock market returns, we will see the arguent for the nationalization of reitirement plans and 401k’s.  It will be a way to force us all to buy the government bonds we know are worthless.  Already the articles are flooding about how bonds have outperformed stocks in the last decades.

 

In addition, he will implement a national sales tax.  The screams will be it is regressive, but he will give a cash credit to food stamp and other social safety net recipients to offset it.

 

He will approve the KEYSTONE pipeline, as unions will want control.  Look for an environmental tax of some kind.  I think he will pragmatically embrace energy as a source of revenue rather than fight all the new found wealth in America.  Remember we now have found at least three Saudi Arabias on our soil. 

 

He will create vast new wealth in his supporters.

 

You only have to open your ears to hear the drumbeat of these predictions. 

 

Remember history shows Americans LOVE socIalism..

 

I believe there are two types of humans..The majority will gladly relinguish freedom in exchange for stuff and being taken care of ….The minority will cherish freedom above all else even if it means being poor.  Remember, “give me Liberty or give me death”?  When I look around the world this is true to this day…

 

So bottom line Obama will become one of the greatest presidents in history.  At least in the eyes of the majority who like “free stuff” and know not what price is paid..

How to Fix America

No matter your political orientation, I think you would agree America has many fundamental problems that need to get fixed.

Let there be no doubt, my bias is toward anything that enables everyone to have access to economic success.  Good education and FREEDOM. So I am biased toward entrepreneurs and very low taxes.  Buy services you need.

I don’t give a rip about drugs, abortions, or sexual preferences.

So I think we should all step aside and let Democrats do everything they want.  Spend like crazy, the more the better.  Kill defense spending.  Ban gun ownership. Unionize everything, no more right to work states. Provide college loans for finger painting studies. Pick the legal system of your choice, shariah, christian street, whatever.   Free food, healthcare, designer clothes, jordan tennis shoes, sex and drugs, eliminate all our weapons, kill cars, mass transit everywhere, All of it…

I think any rational person knows it would end in disaster.  So instead of this death by slow cuts, can we just get there and start over?.  Sure a lot of people would die, and there will be looting and crime, but then we can get back to basics..States rights, small government, armed citizens, proper education etc. etc.

Religion may be destroying America

This is a hard blog to write. 

I realize that America was founded on a judeo christian god fearing basis.  But I also know the whole point of separation of church and state, was to avoid a religious country.  Look around the world, and those whose politics that are driven by religion are the envy of no rational person.

So let’s look at abortion.  This is crazy to let vitriol over this affect the future of this country.  For christians to try to impose on non christians lack of access to contraception or abortion is insane.  You make people who may never even want either vote against you!  If you don’t like the democrat agenda, then for god’s sake ENCOURAGE them to kill their babies. Noone is saying you have to do the same.  Let’s take this issue out of the political arena. Same with contraceptives.  I don’t like letting my tax payer dollars pay for this either, but there are much bigger issues to be dealt with.

I beg the republicans to throw in the towel on this, lest they lose the country ……

 

I beg the christian right learn to become tolerant of all others, just as christians ask to be tolerated.

The Future of America

This is likely to become an ongoing series of comments, driven by relentless reading of other content from democrat and republican sources.

Democrats are currently gloating over the 2012 election.  How the republicans are too  white, don’t embrace latinos etc.etc.

Let’s imagine a country where there was no republican opposition. You can form your own view on this, but we would have expensive gas, but lots of renewable energy.  Social issues would be a thing of the past, you are free to do whatever you want.  The societal safety net would be huge, but you would never have to worry where your next meal is coming from, until it didn’t come.  There would be no right to work states, no homeschooling, a felony to own a weapon etc.etc.  I am not saying this is bad or good just saying..Our foreign policy would be “good luck with that, let us know what you decide, here is some aid in the meantime.

Republicans seem to just slow up this vision of the future.

On the other hand, in CONCEPT, if republicans were in charge there would be a much smaller federal government, people could actually carry weapons (ever note crime rates are actually lower where weapons are accessible) , we would encourage immigrants to come and work legally for their willingness to provide cheap labor as a way of getting started, no public service unions, perhpas no unions at all, an education system driven by economic needs rather than ideology.  Maybe no student loans for degrees in psychology, or urban studies.  Basically, student loans would be determined by ability to pay later.  If you are getting a degree in chemical engineerig, you can borrow whatever you want as an example.  A degree in the study of comic book social impact on south honduran children not so much. who knows.  Everything driven by states.  With no FEMA it would be up to local communites to take care of their own..No departent of education trying to impose agendas that make no sense on a local basis.  Cheap gas, more pollution. you could literally pick a state that had values similar to your own.  Hard working ag state, or hard partying knowledge worker and finance state, you choose.

I doubt anyone likes either of these outcomes.  We need to keep some form of balance or end up in an unsustainable country.

You have to ask yourself why, when asians have values so based in entrepreneurialsm and quality education do they vote 3 to 1 for democrats? They have a tremendous bias for white skin and waste zillions on products to make them whiter..  Hispanics with strong christian values, still vote 3 to one for democrat.  women…blacks…Here a big tent where lots of people don’t like each other yet unite to defeat someone else they don’t like.  I submit that small issues are trumping big issues in these outcomes.  I mean access to abortion is a thousand times more important to you, than the future of your children ….if you have any?

Shouldn’t our failed education and economics be considered more important than what women do in the privacy of a doctors office?

So at this point democrats will feel no need to change.

Republicans may also feel that way knowing the democrat way will ultimately fail…eventually.

So I think the rest of us have to think long and hard about what we want to have happen in the future..

I simply ask everyone are you voting for somethng, or against something?.  If you are voting against, beware of the law of unintended consequences.

Are you sure we can afford Gay Marriage?

Understand, I am not opposed to the concept, but I never see anyone really discuss the financial ramifications of such a change to our laws.

Consider two “benefits” of anyone being able to “marry” anyone.

First, marriage then lets a spouse get health care coverage under many corporate plans.  So simply “marrying” someone with a major illness such as aids or cancer, will get them covered.  I can imagine people offering to pay Microsoft employees to marry them to enjoy the great benefits.  Of course these people could no longer marry for love and it would disrupt a lot of our traditional society. 

Secondly, let’s imagine what happens to Social Security.  Imagine how many people will make the following deal with old single people.

You marry my grandchild, and I will marry yours!  So now each child will earn a $1500 monthly annuity for life.  Can you imagine how many people will abuse such a system?.

 I submit we should try to keep the original intent , which was to support the family unit.  Specifically such “marriage benefits” shoudl only apply when children are born or adopted into the family unit.
