politics suck....

I posted this as a comment to a blog post on health care reform. I also forwarded it to Glenn Beck so i thought I wold post it on my blog.
---------------------------------------------------
The only people the President and his mouthpiece might be fooling are the sheeple that blindly voted for him and his socialist policies. The President and the Democrats are only interested in ramming as many changes through Congress as they can before they lose control of the House or the Senate. They have a lot of lost time to make up for and they have put the political engines on warp factor 12. It doesn't matter how much damage they will cause by their spastic attempts; change for the sake of change is as bad as doing nothing at all.

As all of this relates to the health care reform debate all I can say is here we go again. The mainstream media outlets continue to break bones bending over backwards to appease the anointed one. ABC stopped being a credible news source more than 20 years ago and to be honest CBS and NBC were right there with them. Cable news stations are not much better; CNN and Fox are about the only stations I can stomach any more but even they routinely give me pause. I will not even discuss MSNBC and the two charlatans masquerading as news casters (Maddow and Olbermann). Huh, I guess I just did.

The Democrats never met a tax hike they didn't like and the Republicans have been leaning hard towards liberal solutions. Sadly we, the American people, continue to put these thugs, thieves, ne'er do wells, and liars in office then act so shocked that they are doing something we dislike, again. It amazes me to hear people talking about possible tax hikes NOW. Many people I know are just shocked that all of this money the politicians spent has to be paid back somehow. They are mad as hell that all of these government programs, old and new alike, have to be funded from somewhere. The sheeple are just now grasping the fact that citizens pay for these things through the taxes they pay and the sudden realization that it's their taxes is somewhat humorous to see.

I say enough. If you want to get all of your news information from a single source, like CNN, or Fox or MSNBC, then you are just too stupid to be an American. Please turn in your citizenship and move to Iran. If, on the other hand, you have a desire to see this country return to what it should be then stop being a sheeple. Stop being part of the problem and become the solution. Do not let Pelosi, Frank, or even Obama tell you what to think. Stop listening to the talking heads as if they were the next best thing to God, no matter what God you happen to believe in, and for once in your life make up your own mind. Have we gone so far that not only can we no longer do for ourselves but we can't even think for ourselves? Here's a hint, look at where we are for your answer.

I do not have a problem with equal opportunity but I will fight like hell against equal outcomes. You get what you put in and if you give nothing then you should get nothing. I respect your right to be an idiot but I do not want to pay for your lack of self respect or laziness. I do not see African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, or whites; I see Americans... People... Men and women. I am tired of hearing about how you are being oppressed, or your job is being stolen from you. Get off your duff and do something about it. Sheeple must be led, told what to think, how to think, how to act and live. I am not a sheeple and I am damn proud of that fact. When you look in the mirror what do you see staring back; a person or a barn yard animal. Baaaaa.

I started not to comment on this post, but I have always said what is on my mind. I am sure we disagree on some aspects when it comes to politics, but I am a person who can agree to disagree with no hard feelings.

Liberals, Conservatives, Democrat, Republican have been destroying this country for a long time. Too many American people have been asleep for years and the ones who try to sound the alarm have been ostracized one way or another. American people are the pawns of what has been going on in the Washington chess game forever.
Our congressional representatives on both sides of the isle have been bought and paid for.

There are some things in your post
I agree with such as:

Sadly, we, the American people, continue to put these thugs, thieves, ne'er do wells, and liars in office then act so shocked that they are doing something we dislike, again.

I do not have a problem with equal opportunity but I will fight like hell against equal outcomes.

The election of President Obama ignited many people for the wrong reason, but it also open many people eyes on how our Government has been treating regular Americans for decades. Unfortunately, President Obama now has to take the brunt of what has been happening to America for many years...it has been falling along time ago.

Thanks for your comments. I am glad to see some people understand the reality of what is going on; come to think of it it's not really new. Too many people are blinded by the word Democrat or Republican and their often pseudonyms.

I do want to be clear that I think we have reached a good point where electing someone other than a white male is an option. That speaks volumes.

With that being said you must understand that I have nothing against Obama himself. I don't even know the man. What the public is fed through the media is certainly nothing to tell me if I like him. I would have to meet and get to know him. What I disagree with are his, and by extension the party's, policies.

I am in favor of a smaller government. I am in favor of regulation to control widespread and rampant thieving by anyone, not just corporations, and protecting the public at large from the aforementioned ne'er do wells (HA! I got to use it twice. I feel better).

I am a Libertarian by definition and by practice. I see valid points from both camps with a few oddball ones thrown in for good measure. In the final analysis though we, as a society, need to learn to recognize that just because we elect them does not mean they are looking out for us.

My Political Science instructor said it best; Once a politician gets elected their primary goal is to get reelected. So much for the constituents.

Thanks for coming by and I hope to see you back here soon. I enjoy a good debate about pretty much anything and i am always game. hehe
