The republicans suck

No I’m not a democrat. I just don’t buy into the fallacy of ‘the lesser of two evils’.

My mailbox got spammed this week with letters to vote the democrats out of office for wasteful spending. All three of the letters said this:

“End the democrats’ wasteful spending.

Cut the deficit.

Cap Spending.

Balance the budget.

Vote Republican

Tuesday, November 6th”

What do you think I am; stupid? Seriously, do you think I’m suffering from short term memory loss? I seem to recall the republicans massively increasing spending while in office during the Bush administration. How is it any different if the democrats do it? Why is it that people allow themselves to be played when ‘the other side is doing it’ but forget when their ‘side’ does it?

And then there was a letter for John Boehner, which said:

“John Boehner Fighting for freedom. Making a Difference.”

Nice tag line, shame its all a complete lie. This scum bag is the one who read from a teleprompter during the RNC convention, and completely ignored shouts from the delegates during a robo call. Not to mention being speaker of the house during the signing of the NDAA act, of which I can’t remember him saying anything against. Freedom my foot. Boehner is just like every other politician, he doesn’t care about freedom, he only cares about money and power.

On one side of my street there is a lady with an ‘Obama/Biden’ sign. Lovely lady, very pleasant to talk to, I guess she just doesn’t get it. Across the other side of the street there are two other signs, one reads ‘Romney/Ryan’. Nice old couple, always decorate their yard for Halloween and Christmas. But I guess they don’t get it either, after all Romney is is practically Obama’s twin on almost every policy. Their other sign reads ‘Keep America free. Fire Obama’. While I agree with firing Obama, I disagree with the keeping America free part. As it stands today, America is not free. We have a long way to go to get back to freedom. But I understand the point of the sign.

The reason I say that the republicans suck, is because as they stand today, they vary very little from the democrats. I do tend to lean more republican because the democrats simply don’t get it. It’s very easy to vote for a ‘generic republican’ to get rid of a democrat, but that doesn’t solve anything unless the said republican is principled and sticks to what he preaches. I like republicans such as Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and former New Mexico republican governor Gary Johnson. These men represent the future of the party, if the party will adapt to our demands. As it stands today the collective republican party does not stand for liberty and free markets. It stands for big government and corporate fascism. It is very important to learn this in order to hold your representatives feet to the fire.

I will not be voting for Mitt Romney for a myriad of reasons. I will be voting for Gary Johnson. My generation is expected to foot the bill for the massive multi-trillion dollar deficit which has been run up by both the republicans and the democrats. We are expected to be used as cannon fodder for the increasing and unnecessary wars in the middle east, and we are expected to be used as collateral for the expansion of debts and growth of government over the coming years under both the republicans and democrats. For my generation, this simply will not stand.

5% of the vote splits the two party monopoly forever. The libertarian party will grow exponentially during this election period. The republicans will really have to dig deep and change their ways if they want to get our votes again. The children of the information age are growing up, and we’re mad as hell about all the silly games that have been played on our parents by this two party shenanigan, and we’re mad as hell that we’re expected to not only believe in these fairy tales from both parties, but to fight, die and slave for their mistakes.

As of right now the republicans suck, but there is a new party out there which is willing to embrace true guardians of liberty. The largest freedom movement since the days of Thomas Jefferson and the other founding fathers is upon us. Come join us and hold all the looters feet to the fire!

Live Free! Vote Gary Johnson for president in 2012!

Mitt Romney

I keep hearing people talk about Obama, and how we must elect Mitt Romney to beat him. But how much do you really know about the republican candidate?

Strange But True: Mitt Romney Spent The Vietnam War In A French Palace

I thought that once Ron Paul was rejected by the establishment GOP, that I would go silently into the night and let everyone have their say and their vote between ‘the lesser of two evils’ without debating why I don’t like either of them. I thought that I would keep the peace and let bygones be bygones. But the way the RNC treated Ron Paul and his delegates was a disgrace to democracy and to the representation of the nation.

Death Of Democracy: GOP Party Bosses Seize Complete Control Of Selecting Candidates

This path of the lesser of two evils has done the very thing it was intended to; it brought about evil.

With bipartisan support, this new system of corruption has embedded itself on the American psyche, and we believe we are supposed to continue to play their silly games, while giving them unbridled power, and giving up our liberties.

Mitt Romney’s voting record is similar to Obama’s, and they agree on almost everything:

Mitt Romney is supposed to have been an entrepreneur and a job creator, but his legacy shows that his firm is an asset stripping company which ships jobs over seas.

Mitt Romney dodged the draft, while encouraging others to fight instead. His company looted and pillaged other companies that provided good jobs for people. And now we move forward to his governorship; in which he massively increased the state debt, and hiked fees across the board. During his governorship Massachusetts dropped to 47th in the nation for job creation.

So the idea that Mitt Romney is somehow going to save us from Obama is completely mis-founded. If you think that the media is bias now; think about a future with ‘Clear Channel’, which is owned by ‘Bain Capital’ cheer-leading his presidency at every turn, even when he continues the same atrocities of the Bush/Obama administrations.

So I’m asking you to think outside the box, and take a good long hard look at the candidate that you’ll be voting for.

Remember, if you decide to vote for the lesser of two evils; that makes you evil too.

The modern conservative party has been infiltrated by the neo-cons and their only agenda is power. The display at the RNC should give you shivers. I thought Nancy Pelosi was bad, but when I watched John Boehner blatantly ignore the objections in the crowd, I knew that he was no better. He, like so many other of the republicans at the RNC talk the talk, but they do not walk the walk, and that is simply not good enough.

As a Life Long Republican, I Will Not Vote For Romney.

Money; Capitalism and the Gold Standard

A free thinking, and abundant society is built off the mutual exchange of goods and services. Capitalism, for the first time in history, leveled the playing field away from ‘dignitaries’, and allowed all men to become equal and trade goods and services between each other.

Capitalism, in its purest form, guarded by the people with a limited government, has allowed the largest leaps and bounds of science and technology in history.

Up until the 1920’s there was a gold standard for money, and it meant that in all developed countries, your money had a value to it and was backed by gold. During the gold standard, money always retained its value.

After the gold standard, the world switched to a fiat currency, which is backed by ‘trust’ in the stock market and government. As more money is printed on paper, the value of it becomes worth less and less, because there is more of it circulating. Special interest groups gain more fiat money that is printed, while the working class lose the value of their money, while making no more than they were before.

In 1924 you could buy a Model T for the cost of about 3 months wages. How many cars can you buy for 3 months wages today, based upon the median American income?

This is all due to deflation of value. We call it inflation of the markets, but all we’re really doing is raising prices and lowering the value of our products and money.

The biggest money scam in history took place at the end of 2008 during the presidential debates with the bail out funds.

Unfortunately our capitalist system has been hijacked by special interests and crony capitalists.

Some say that socialism is the answer. I say that it is not, as it drags everyone down to the lowest level of mediocrity.

Others say that money is the root of all evil. To which I contest. Watch this video:

“Money demands that you sell, not your weakness to men’s stupidity, but your talent to their reason.” – Ayn Rand

Money is not the root of all evil. I contend that corruption is the root of all evil. Without corruption, special interests and the looters of society, we wouldn’t be in the financial mess we’re in today.

Come to think of it…are WE really in a financial mess? After all, its the governments and special interest groups that caused this mess. We’re simply the enablers, the ones who didn’t do anything to stop it from happening, and now we have to suffer the consequences. Check out yesterdays post to see why YOU are to blame. And stay tuned for tomorrows blog on who I think can help us out.

I believe that with a gradual return to the gold standard, and ‘sound money’ we will return to a strong dollar and return our purchasing power. Our work will become more meaningful, since our money will become more valuable, and if coupled with de-regulation and tax cuts, our economy will begin to regenerate and thrive once more.
