Progressives

Not that it would have done any good, but…

Every step in the right direction,

is a step in the right direction.

Don’t bet the farm on it.

This video from 2009 tells us all we need to know about Newt’s brand of conservatism.

Found at American Digest a while back. Made by John E., who says of his work:

“In this infographic, I took a look at various statements and promises made by Barack Obama (and a few others) during both the 2008 campaign and early on in his Presidency. These statements were then set against current statistics and those from inauguration day or 2008 for annual stats.”

From Jared Law at The 9.12 Project:

The so-called ‘National Popular Vote’ movement is, indeed, a threat to the electoral college, a wise, inspired system our Founding Fathers set up to help provide yet another firewall to a dictator taking control of America before we had a chance to react. California has already completed the process to flip the bird at the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.

Phyllis Schlafly:

A plot is afoot to change our constitutional form of government by ditching the Electoral College. John Anderson, Birch Bayh and John Buchanan, three losers who were defeated in the 1980 Reagan landslide, are scheming to change our Constitution without complying with the amendment process.

Our Constitution requires that a president be elected by a majority of votes in the Electoral College, with each state’s vote weighted based on its population. But some who took an oath to defend our Constitution are plotting to undermine its essential structure by a compact among as few as eleven of the most populous states.

The plan of this Campaign for the National Popular Vote (NPV) is to get states with at least 270 votes in the Electoral College to enact identical bills requiring their own electors to ignore the winner of their state’s election and cast all their state’s ballots for the candidate who the state believes received more popular votes than the other candidates nationwide, even if he fails to win a majority of the popular vote.

Read the whole thing. Then, contact your state and national senators and representatives. If they sneak this through, we will lose the republic.

UPDATE:

Just saw this from Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection:

National Popular Vote debacle looming

Lest you think I’m being too harsh with the “moron” description, behold the products of a Marxist/Socialist education system as they deny civil rights hero Rep John Lewis the opportunity to speak in Atlanta.

These people give mind-numbed robots a bad name.

Robo-log: Wednesday 8-24-11

So, here I am with a pulled or torn Achilles tendon, lying in bed with an ice pack under the heel. Yea, I know, I should get it examined to be sure no other damage has occurred. Maybe I’ll go tomorrow, if it doesn’t improve today.

But, that’s not the reason for this post. This post is about the next election and how the TEA Party is being vilified by the media. I know, you’re saying to your monitor right now “bot, you don’t watch the liberal media, how could you know they are painting the TEA Party as wanting to take away grandma’s Social Security payments and Medicare?” Well, I’ll tell you; because a close family member watches the MSM and soaks up every helpful, hateful word. He then decides to share that information with me in the form of useful tidbits of knowledge sprinkled into our casual conversations.

“How did you hurt your foot?” He asks.

“I have no idea. I woke up, got out of bed Sunday morning and as soon as I hit the floor it started barking at me. By the time I went to bed yesterday evening, I couldn’t put any weight on it at all without excruciating pain.”  I replied. “Last night, I was hopping around the house on my one good foot. I figure that was an accident waiting to happen.”

‘Have you made a doctor’s appointment?”

“Not yet, I figured I’d better get some crutches before I tried to go anywhere.”

“Well, here they are. I hurt my leg a while back and the boss on the job told the company I hurt it at work so the government would pay for them.”

“Thanks, I appreciate the loan. They’re going to be a big help. How have you and the Missus been getting along since you both retired?” I asked.

“Doing good, trying to survive on our Social Security and pensions. That’s all going away if the TEA Party gets their way.” He added, helpfully.

Nice. He’s furnishing me with a means of locomotion and now, armed with the knowledge of their illicit procurement, I feel mildly guilty for using them. Adding to the ironic, hypocritical, monologue he takes the opportunity to share the latest MSM talking points: The ludicrous idea that the TEA Party want to take away his Social Security payments. I just looked at him, knowing better than to engage. No point in arguing with a liberal, much less a family member who’s trying to help me out in a bad situation. Besides, I know he’s trying to goad me into an argument and I’m in no mood to play. He is, unfortunately, just another blind, lemming Democrat. (Was that redundant?)

I share this story not to complain of a strained tendon, or of a semi-strained family relationship. I tell you this story to let you know what kind of mindset we are up against. It’s a mindset born of Generational Training. It’s a thought process devoid of thought, that still believes every drooling word from mongrel lap dogs like Chris Mathews or Maxine Waters or from Obama himself. They are the true mind-numbed robots, all too willing to believe the lies and exaggerations, regurgitated and beak-fed to them, the liberal Children of Government, unable, in their minds, to fend for themselves and utterly convinced the TEA Party wants your aged parents or grandmother homeless, without health care and barely subsisting on a diet of Alpo and crackers.

BALDERDASH!

The TEA Party is about less government, namely, less Federal Government in our lives. We don’t want to take your Social Security. The government already stole it from you without your permission or consent and, unreported by the likes of the MSM, we think you deserve to get it back, as promised. Nor do we think the poor, or disadvantaged should be forgotten. We just disagree in principle on the definitions of poor and disadvantaged. We don’t believe people on food stamps and welfare should be driving around in cars more expensive than the citizens’ that paid for them or living in houses furnished with big screen televisions and broad band internet. Those are luxury items and should be reserved for the people WHO WORK FOR THEM!

My relative has yet to realize his party left him long ago.

The TEA Party is the working class!

The TEA Party is Middle America, trying to salvage what is left of our country before it is torn apart from the inside by a wanna-be two-bit dictator and his commie cohorts.

We’re tired of politicians buying votes with our stolen money in the name of some fictitious war on poverty while they do nothing more than increase the entitlement mentality and lining their pockets with the excess.

We also think that countless illegal immigrants should not have their hands in that cookie jar either, a jar they only take from and have never contributed to.

We are tired of bailouts and corporate takeovers, of crony capitalism, of commies in congress and socialistic presidents and class warfare and of being told to shut up.

I will never shut up. You can pry this keyboard from my cold dead fingers because even though some of those zombie liberals know not what they do, they need the opportunity to learn.

Now, where’s the ice –

and the Jim Beam?

Why the Beam, you ask?

Well, aside from the obvious need for pain killing, medicinal purposes, today, 8/25/11, marks the second year anniversary of Robo-blogging. ~ Cheers!

Here come the judge: “More freedom means less government.”

Which reminds me of an Automotivator I did a while back…

Thanks to Libertarian Buddha for the email pointing me to The Libertarian Buddhist.

Imagine that.    :)
