US Politics

Found at Left Coast Rebel, who described it thus:

“This has got be hands down one of the funniest things I have ever seen:”

I wholeheartedly agree.

It was clear the Vice President Biden’s only preparation for the debate last night was to bone up on more lies and misdirection, that and possibly a bit of laughing gas.

As I said last night on twitter, Joe Biden is one heartbeat away from the Presidency. That alone should be enough motivation to vote for Romney and Ryan.

As it stands, I think Paul Ryan held his own while debating both Biden and the moderator.

We have a language barrier, an impasse to communication born from necessity of the left to continually deny their penchant for the utopian dream. Or, in some instances, if not deny the wish for utopia, to deny they are leftist at all. For them, the confusion of terms must ever remain a fog of understanding; for once the curtain is drawn back, once the light of reality shines upon the mind of an independent, the spell is broken. Because the truth is that socialism must, by design, segregate the individual into classes and factions in order to divide and conquer, must infuse distrust, dissent and hatred for our fellow men to subjugate a free and civil society to those who know better, to the elite, and once that realization dawns on a person, their argument for socialist solutions for an improving society breaks down. It is for the greater good, we are told. And it is the greatest lie ever propagated on a free people.

The free individual must, under leftist thought, subjugate himself unto such a regime for their plan to work. It is not compatible with America as founded and so America must be transformed.

I am ever reminded of this lie masquerading as language barrier when conversing with some who are offended to be labeled a leftist but ascribe to policies that are clearly socialist and it causes me to ponder – At what point on the line between left and right can one legitimately be labeled a leftist? Even if no such line exists, say their philosophy is so scattered across the spectrum as to defy category, what positions must they support to attain the Leftist label?

How many leftist policies would someone have to agree with in order to legitimately earn the “Leftist” label?

Do any carry more Leftist weight than others?

To help answer this question, please take this entirely scientific and utterly meaningless poll.

Consider the policies in the list below. Please choose only the ones that, when put in combination, would place the person who ascribes to them in the category of Leftist. But pick only as many as required to qualify. If only one will break the leftist barrier, then choose only that one.

The question also arises; can a leftist be absolved of the label by supporting some other libertarian or conservative principle? Can one cancel the other out?

What combination might that be?

Feel free to discuss in the comments.

So good, you want to see it again.

Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan responds to the fact checkers in an unaired interview after his RNC speech.

Senator Rand Paul delivered arguments to put restrictions and conditions on monetary aid to foreign countries moments before the Senate voted to continue those same policies without any restrictions.

 

Brevard Times has more along with the vote tally:

Rubio, Nelson Vote For Foreign Aid To Libya, Pakistan, Egypt

Sen. Paul’s bill, S. 3576, called for a prohibition of U.S. aid funds to the governments of Egypt, Libya and Pakistan contingent upon the release to U.S. authorities the aggressors who attacked our embassy and consulate in Egypt and Libya, respectively, and the release of Dr. Shakil Afridi, currently held by the Pakistani government.

 

“In no way should the United States government be sending money to governments who are not our ally, who blatantly do not respect our country, and who work to compromise the safety of our allies and citizens abroad. I am pleased that the Senate leadership has listened to my pleas for an end to this and have agreed to debate and vote on this pressing issue,” Sen. Paul said.

 

Senators Bill Nelson (D-FL) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) both voted for continued foreign aid to those mid-east countries.  The total U.S. foreign aid given to Pakistan, Libya and Egypt equals roughly $4 billion per year.

Decide for yourself if President Obama meant what he said.

Praise the Lord? Or praise Obama? Given the Government is the only thing that we all belong to” theme of the DNC conference in Charlotte, NC this week and the “non-sanctioned” posters being hawked by vendors outside the DNC, I think it’s obvious who the Democrats would like us to bow to, and it isn’t the Lord Jesus Christ.

An Obama calendar, obtained by Fox News, features two religious images of the Commander-in-Chief.    

The month of August includes a photograph of Obama’s birth certificate with the words “Heaven sent.”

The president was born on Aug. 4th.

The entry also includes a photograph of Obama along with a passage of Scripture from the New Testament.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” the entry read — referencing John 3:16.

This is a continuing tactic used by the Obama team and their supporters. It is offensive and disturbing to Constitutionalists and Christians alike. Americans do not worship our president, nor should we be encouraged to. It’s also telling that the DNC Platform removed references to God and Jerusalem while mentioning Obama by name 38 times and referring to him around 200. See – Democrats Remove ‘God-Given’ From Platform, Remove References to Jerusalem

 

If he’s repeating the same lines as 2008, then isn’t he running against himself? Isn’t he admitting he’s done nothing to fix the problems he claims to have inherited or that his policies aren’t working?
