Okay so where were we? Oh yea the expert..the Constitutional scholar, the Reagan conservative, the right wing Roosevelt, the self proclaimed expert on all things governmental Mr Newton “Newt” Leroy Gingrich. Now again don’t get me wrong Cats and Kittens, I like Newt, read his books, think he’s smart, an important voice in today’s theater of ideas (pronounced with a European accent if done correctly) as it were. But he is not, cannot possibly be for limited government, not when he is also for larger government. Newt, God bless his soul is one of countless well educated monied elite who truly believe that it is up to Government to direct the people.
I’m sure an example would be good here, and we all know how much I like wasting words on those, but here goes I’ll try. There are a lot of Americans who believe in an open immigration policy, just open borders no restrictions, these people for the most part identify with the democratic party, I know I used to be a democrat and an open border supporter (oh wait I still am, though I also consider myself a conservative [put that in yer judgmental pipes and smoke it]). Okay wait where was..oh yes…there are a lot of people who support open borders. There are also a lot of people, mostly conservative this time, who favor closed, even (facistly in style) walled borders (don’t even get me started on that asshat idea). Overall however there are very few people who favor some sort of amnesty situation again. But Newt, he doesn’t care about that, boldly enough, he tells us what is best…I mean they all do it…but there is no one who does it quite like the Newtster.
Now to be fair much of the Newtfervor is based on the the three fold idea that a: he’s not Romney, b:he’s not Romney and finally c:he will clean the Presidents clock in a debate. Okay lets examine this shall we. Both a & b can be supported by strong arguments, so I mean ya got me there but c’s where ya lose me.
Now don’t get me wrong…again…but Newt is like the really smart guy in debate class that annoyed the crap out of all the other kids, the President, Mr. Obama, he’s like the cool kid…if the American people were all debate coaches no doubt Newt would win. But most Americans, I believe at this point, would struggle to spell debate let alone understand the complex issues discussed in one. Instead, all Pres. Obama will need to do is, like the kid on the spot in Bill & Ted’s excellent Adventure, throw up his hands with an “America Rocks” and the crowd will go wild. I’m sorry republicans and conservatives, intellect no longer wins the game (if it ever did?). So even if Newt can somehow convince half his own party that they don’t really want the policies they think they want…that they want his policies instead, I do not believe he will be able to take the election.
Okay so where does that leave us I mean true, small fed conservatives (by god American independents who know the libertarian party’s got no chance in hell of getting a viable candidate) I mean there is no one else is there no true limited government candidate, no one else who..okay well..might as well deal with him I mean the guy just won’t go away so lets talk about he other “constitutional expert” in the field Mr. Paul, Ron Paul, SenatorPaul whatever I mean jumped up Jesus get the hint Buddy.
Listen Mr. Paul, I’ll put aside the fact that your district got and gets a lot of federal pork money that you only recently seemed to be concerned about and buy into the idea you want to, in essence, disassemble most of the fed, I’m on board baby love it, I’m mean yer a little loony and look like ol’ Pat Paulsen (who also ran a comedic campaign fer president) but I’ll go ahead and buy what yer sellin…or would…and here unfortunately is where you lose me and every right thinking American.
Here is a quote I pulled from the top of the Ron Paul website under the heading “foreign policy”
That’s what blowback is all about. It seems like such a simple concept, but many of Ron Paul’s opponents for the Presidency vehemently denied its validity.”
This is his main argument for his foreign policy stance. This is simplistic idealistic drivel at best, as a foreign policy directing how we deal with other countries in the world who, even if they don’t hate us, covet our resources and fertile farmlands, is a further weakening of America’s stance in an increasingly hostile world.
I mean but here he is, still, the guy won’t away, he’s everywhere (like Droopy), his “Ron”-ites, or “Paul”-ists (whatever I’m sure they have a trendy catch phrase name) seem to be everywhere and the left loves him…but again why shouldn’t they, he a: hates the military and b: will never ever beat President Obama. I mean if there was one candidate who can make even Newt look presidential it’s good ol’ Sen. Paul.
So again we are back to my original concern. I hear lots of confident talk by conservative radio hosts and commentators but I for one do not share there sense of surety, their (unfounded as far as my experience goes) faith in the modern American voter.
Half of the young people I work with cannot spell…okay wait let me rephrase that many of the young adults I work with cannot spell; I mean simple everyday words. They have no idea what is going on in the big wide world unless it involves entertainment, sex, alcohol and or drugs (or best if its all of them combined). They don’t only not know about things like the deficit, taxes, profit margins, etc they don’t want to know about them.
But nearly all of those kids love Obama, and they love the idea of redistribution of wealth. All it means to them is that they can get that new 70 inch flat screen, that new smart phone.
Does any republican candidate, whichever old tired rich white guy we decide to send up against Obama have anything to compare to that, free money and a chicken in every pot displayed in high def?
I don’t think so, but you know me, I’m dysfunctional so hell I could just as easily be wrong about all this…
So what solutions do I offer, I don’t know, that’s what I’m saying, you’ll have to go with yer gut, right now, if nothing changes I’m voting Cain & Trump for 2012, at least that presidency would be something new, oh and entertaining for the kids…
February 2, 2012
Okay well here we are, a few Republican primaries under our proverbial collective belts, and I thought it might be kind’a fun to look at where we are and to do a little prognosticatin’ bout where we might be headin.
Alright so probably the best place to start is an overall view of the candidates, a bunch of yuksters, okay well so…wait what? Okay well ya’ want more than that. Overall view is that most of the candidates are big federal government supporters (all except save one but we’ll get to that Cat’s & Kittens) and that makes them not unlike their democrat rival, it’s just the details that then become definitive. Overall the candidates that are left in the race, though they may be Republicans, are definitely not conservative, or do not adhere to strict conservative values…
Quick aside for the vast majority of you who may possibly (someday) read this…I, like many people who call themselves conservative, believe in limited federal government, that’s why so many of us were angry with Bush during his last four years where he proved that he too believed the federal government was a tool to achieve his aims. To a conservative, this is no different than the democratic side of the aisle and why, in the long run it has been so hard to get the party to coalesce around this guy…
Mitt, Mitt, Mitt, what are ya gonna do? I mean I like ya, and I will probably vote for you if it comes to that, but there is a reason (beyond your smooth well polished delivery) that you are the Republican candidate of choice for our unbiased media here in America. I imagine you like to think that you are the media darling you are because of your flashy winning smile and intellectual yet charmingly disarming manner. If you do believe that I feel sorry fer ya’ cause the truth of course is much uglier, they like you because they know (as do many conservatives) that you are one of them, one of the cultural and monied elite. You believe, in the long run, as they do, that Government is the answer to the countries problems. I know you’re this great business whiz, and I like that, but will you treat the Government like one of the failing bushiness’s you acquired in your iron fisted ceo of Bain Capital days? Don’t get me wrong I mean that’s what I want you to do, I just don’t think you will. Sure you will trim some government programs and areas, policies, or pet projects that are solidly democrat to prove what a good conservative you are to your base, but you will also fail to address the real issue…wait what? You wanna know what I think the real issue is hold on let me fig..oh okay how bout this…I slap this image I pulled off the net…I think that works for a starter….Also remember I am a reta…whoops promised Lil Mouse wouldn’t use that word (cause all you retard bastards keep whining)…but I’m gettin off track…ya see it’s worse ’cause we are not, as a country even paying off the interest on the national debt…It’s really like the housing crisis for the whole country except the bank in this instance is CHINA.. so ya see Mitt, can I call ya that, what I wanna know is how are you going to convince me that you are the guy for this job. Listen, I’m dumb when it comes to math, I mean not only am I not that good at it, i don’t wanna be good at it…not my thing, never gonna be an accountant…an area of life where my Dysfunction really shows and in some ways limited my earning potential…gettin way off track but what I’m tryin to say is that even I can grasp the concept that spending more than I am taking in will eventually result in my going broke and my ending up back on the street…why can’t you grasp that!?!
Okay so sorry Mitt, I got a little carried away and may have been talking more to my readers (all 2 of them) more than just you. I do like what you said regarding the very poor last night, and you are right so if ya’ don’t cave to media pressure and back track on the statement I will be pleasantly and supportively surprised. No matter what everybody else believes the Government cannot abolish poverty by taking from one group to give to another, the only winner in that scenario is Government. So if ya believe and are ready to end the war on poverty I am on board. Now how ’bout the next most costly and pointless war the drug war, how bout we end that? Oh no thats a good republican waste of money so that’s okay, is that how you see it?
And that becomes the nut of problem for most conservatives, so who do you vote for? How bout this guy? Rick Santorum is also running for the Republican nomination and may hold distinction of being the first candidate to ever win the Iowa Caucus and to have said win ignored by the Media. Mr. Santorum seems like a sincere guy. It wasn’t but just recently however that his behavior was much more akin to Bush and Kerry and many other Washington elites, who no matter what side of the aisle they claim to be on they are spend to solve bandwagon jumpers,he is like so many in Washington really a member of the green, as in money, party. As to a head to head in national elections I’m sorry Mr. Santorum I really don’t believe you have a chance, the media will do to you what the Romans did to..oh wait there I go again and I don’t wanna go there…so the point is that you are literally far too right and far too white to win in a head to head election against Obama. Besides I’m not sure if you know this or not but many of the people who call themselves Republican’s don’t want the Federal Government to be involved in an issues like abortion either pro or con, leave that to communities, churches synagogues mosques what have you and people, local people and local city county state governments to decide…
See the Federal Government was only supposed to provide for the common defense of the states and to settle issues between them such as tariff disputes etc…I mean I don’t know why I’m telling you this, I mean, you probably are an expert in this stuff or at least know some one who is wait…how about our next Candidate oh but before I do lets split this blog up cause I’m hell’a long…
