Republican Choices?

I’ve noticed lately that more and more people seem to be awakening to the fact that the republican front-runner in this presidential race offers nothing new and will just be more of the same if not worse. Though I personally feel this way about all three of the presidential front-runners. It won’t matter whether Clinton or Obama wins the Democratic nomination………….either one will keep things status-quo, at best.

Once again, Chuck Baldwin, a regular News With Views contributor, has given me a wonderful piece (ignoring his religious belief dig at a woman’s right to choose what to do with an unwanted pregnancy) on the presidential candidates and why allowing the status-quo just shouldn’t happen.

I love the way this is written. While sarcastic, it is honest and true.

I think it is time that we all stood up and gave the Republican Party a big round of applause. I mean, they have done us all a huge favor. By an overwhelming majority, the GOP has prevented a potential plague from enveloping these United States of America, and I think it is time that we acknowledged it. Yes, the GOP stopped a potential catastrophe. Without the combined efforts of millions of Republicans, there is no telling what kind of disaster might have ensued. Let’s hear it for the GOP! Hip Hip Hooray!

For a few minutes there, I thought the GOP might have lost its mind, but I am glad to report that all is well with the Republican Party. The international bankers and oil companies, and the military-industrial complex, as well as the presidents of Mexico and Canada, can breathe easy. With John McCain as the presumptive Republican nominee, the globalist power brokers who have dominated the last three Presidential administrations can know that they are still in charge. There will be no changing of the guard this November.

It was scary there for a while. You see, there was this kook who was running for the Republican nomination that had the potential to upset the applecart real good. But thankfully, the fine people within the GOP rose to the occasion and beat back the attempts of his nutty supporters to vault him to the nomination.

After all, just think what would have taken place if this kook Ron Paul had won the Republican nomination for President. This nut case actually believes that the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land. Imagine that. That means he would never take America to war except with a Declaration of War by Congress. Think how such a thing would prevent America’s meddling and interventionism worldwide. Think of the billions and even trillions of tax dollars that would not need to be spent overseas. Think of how much money Halliburton would lose. Think of how much money the Federal Reserve bankers would lose by not being able to loan money to the U.S. government. It is too ghastly to think about.

This Ron Paul kook would also have put a stop to the incessant spying on the American people by their own federal government. Egad! This Paul character would have set America back two hundred years. Think of it. No more illegal wiretaps. No more reading private emails, letters, and telegrams. No more harassment by the BATFE of law-abiding firearms dealers for honest errors in paperwork. No more using the wars on “terror” and “drugs” to violate the Fourth Amendment. Think of the money that would be lost by the feds not confiscating the private property of the American people.

In addition, if this Ron Paul nut had actually become President, he might have succeeded in abolishing the Internal Revenue Service and overturning the Sixteenth Amendment. Holy Horrors! Can you imagine the tragedy that would have ensued? No more income taxes. No more tax forms to fill out. No more IRS agents arresting hard-working citizens for “tax evasion.” No more government tracking of our private financial transactions. Think of the US attorneys whose services would no longer be necessary. Imagine that. The federal government would actually be required to live within its means; it could no longer raise taxes, because there would be no more taxes to raise.

Do not worry, however. Thanks to the fine men and women of the Republican Party, John McCain will carry their standard into the November elections. Yes, my dear friends, David Rockefeller and his fellow travelers at the Council on Foreign Relations can rest easy. Should McCain win the general election, they will retain their influence in the White House. Indeed, we can all rest easier knowing that John McCain will be the Republican nominee for President.

After all, John McCain will see to it that our borders and ports remain open to illegal aliens. In fact, a McCain Presidency will ensure that illegal aliens become permanent U.S. citizens. Or better yet, that the U.S. and Mexico will be merged into a North American Community, thus eliminating the need for U.S. citizenship altogether. This will greatly help the Chamber of Commerce and Big Business. Think of the money they can save by hiring cheap Mexican labor. Think of the plants and factories that can be moved to Mexico. Think of the cheap Chinese goods that can be loaded onto Mexican trucks from Mexican ports and shipped into the United States on the NAFTA superhighways.

And did I mention the advantage a John McCain Presidency will provide to incumbents in future elections? Because John McCain does not believe in the U.S. Constitution, the First Amendment means nothing to him. This is good, because he can use the bully pulpit of the Presidency to promote his McCain/Feingold bill that would make it illegal for citizens to voice their concerns and opinions regarding the voting records of incumbents during a general election. That means those sinister organizations such as the National Rifle Association and Gun Owners of America will no longer be able to publicly promote their views regarding the anti-Second Amendment voting records of congressmen and senators.

I urge all voters to write in Ron Paul’s name on the election ballot come this November. Or if you really can’t stand Ron Paul, hopefully you will cherish your liberty, freedom, and love this country enough to write in someone else’s name.

Let’s send Washington D.C. the message that we are fed up and we’re NOT going to take it anymore!!!

  1. Whereas I cannot vote for Ron Paul, I do have a solution to the whole election mess this year.

    If Obama is the candidate of change and McCain is the candidate of compromise then I have an idea of what they can do to heal America. If they really want to bridge the gap between the races and extend an olive branch to the parties then they need to make more of an effort to make me feel like they really mean it.

    Of course I have a post about this “why can’t we all just get along” idea. I would appreciate your comments on my new plan for the Republic.

    Let me know what you think of my new plan to save America at:

    Thanks for your time

  2. I’ll check out your post, but unless it’s about returning this country to it’s original constitutional republic as outlined by our founding fathers, your solution will just be more of the same that we have now.

  3. Me again,

    I just have to say that I probably agree more with then you know.

    I can’t go all the way to Ron Paul however, and McCain is hard to swallow. A real viable conservative candidate is not available. The left is just tooooo left, I can’t give this country to them.
    Ron Paul has two problems for me.
    First, he can’t win so my vote is virtually lost.
    Second, even though I understand the dream, the reality is we cannot take our ball and refuse to play with the rest of the world. There are too many missiles, nuclear weapons, cyber-terrorists and more international trans-world mad men… cetera.

    Thanks for the space and your comments.

  4. So you just want to lie down and lose the foundation of this country? You really want to be enslaved to the power elite?

    Ron Paul may not stand a snowball’s chance in hell, but I’m no longer voting for the lesser of two evils. I’ll write in “none of the above” if I have to, but neither choice that the bankers give me will get MY vote.

    Goddess bless you, but I’m not willing to bow down to those who would see destroyed what this country once was and stood for.

    Socialism ain’t for me.

  5. You raise some interesting points.
    Two ideas come to me from your response.

    1. The message is not impossible.
    Ron Paul is.

    2. The conversation wets my appetite,
    The tone of the conversation is unappetizing to me.

    Someone along the lines of Newt Gingrich might entice me more.
    Words of logic and wisdom would be an interesting approach.
    So, it is not about lying down and letting the truck run over me.
    It is more about driving the tuck.

    I am not prepared to be like the WWII Japanese solder who hid in the hills for thirty years and was prepared to take on the U.S. when he was found.

    The battle is on the front lines in the trenches face to face.
    It is easy to say, “I’ll vote for a guy who can’t win.”
    Then one can complain no matter whom wins; one can say, “I never voted for Him/her.”

    Just so you know, I voted for third party candidates in four different presidential elections. I know of what I speak.

    I do admire your passion. Political Passion is a good thing for America.

    The real problem is with the American people turning left.
    It’s in the schools, the church, TV, Liberalism is everywhere.

    Conservatism needs to be taught to our children. If we do not have a voice in government the left will take over more of the education of our children. I think we might both agree on that point. It is how we stop that process that we disagree on.

    And for another time, the debate will have to wait on what is conservatism. I do not believe we can pull our heads into our turtle shell and let the rest of the world run around without us.
    It anin’t goana’ happen. They want what we got, we need to protect our stuff, including our children and grandchildren.

    Good day and God Bless

  6. Rigg,

    I hear what you are saying and I don’t necessarily disagree with you. While I would love nothing more than hiding out in the hills, away from the world’s problems and society in general (I’m not really a people person), I know that is not the answer.

    I have spent my life either not voting OR voting for the “lesser of two evils” and neither option has ever left me feeling good about myself. Voting for the lesser evil is not really the answer either. We need to demand better choices. We need to make sure that these politicians hear us, that they hear we are fed up with “politics as usual”, that we are fed up with the way they are running/ruining this country. We need to take back OUR control of the government. We need to stop buying their campaign bullshit.

    I don’t know what the real solution is, other than outright revolution (which is not an option I look forward to either), but what is happening today is not what our founding fathers had in mind and is most definintely NOT what the Constitution sets out.

    I didn’t vote for bush either time, I chose the “lesser evil” both times, so I still get to say I didn’t vote for him, and it still gets me nowhere, nor makes me feel any better.

    We need to stop being afraid of our government and return our government to being afraid of “We The People”.

    Personally, I dislike the whole left/right/republican/democrat/conservative/what-have-you system. None are better than the other, they just dictate differently. But that’s me. While Conservatives may appear to be the lesser of the evils, many of their views are just as confining and dictatorial as all the others….and not any better in my view.

    Seems to me they ALL want to remove our “right to choose” from us.
