And They’re OFF!

Posted: July 13, 2015 in politics

The Presidential horse race is well under way.  The Republican field is very crowded, with Donald Trump a very dark horse having more appeal than the powers that be anticipated.

The Democratic field is well, boring.  Will this primary campaign be a perfunctory race ending in a pre-coronation for Hillary Clinton?  Can Sanders really muster any support outside the liberal northeast to challenger her?  Who else is running?  zzzzzzzz.

It’s anyone’s guess at this time.

It will be interesting to watch.  As in every recent Presidential bid, this one is thought to be pivotal to determine the country’s direction for potentially generations.  The stakes are high.  Sadly, on both sides the field is honestly, not that inspiring.

I didn’t care for Romney when he ran in the last presidential Republican primary and I don’t really care for him now.  He’s so bland.

Well, maybe that’s not so bad.  The left has tried to make much of his cold capitalist ways and his lack of hipness.  They waste their time and squander what little political capital they’ve been able to muster.  The truth is that whatever Romney lacks in eliciting excitement, their guy, Mr. O elicits monumental disdain.  No matter how they try to spin his record, Obama’s only real agenda has been to “make the rich pay their fair share.”

He has made no progress creating jobs, his energy policy has produced neither safer or greener energy in any meaningful quantity while his administration has worked diligently to hamstring all the current energy production.  He seems to think there is no consequence to piling on debt at a pace no past president could have even conceived

They try to pose him as a moderate, but no one with eyes to see is fooled.

Romney may be “cold,”  but he’s mature.  He is NOT an ideologue.  He is pragmatic and knows how it is that the real world works.

I think Romney’s strength may prove to be in the better management of our trade and diplomatic relations.  I don’t see him rushing into any armed conflict, but I’ll bet when it comes to treaties with our trading partners, he’ll write deals much more favorable to America than any recent President.  I think that’s his nature.  I could be overly optimistic, but our county’s founders had great faith in the “diplomacy” of trade.  It just may be that we could see a better economy for ourselves, more respect on the world stage with a trade policy run by a capitalist.


Cicero, at around age 60

“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” Cicero ~55 BC

For more on Cicero, check out the wikipedia.

It is important to realize that the challenges we face are not new except maybe in their scope.  Our founding fathers were very familiar with the failures of government through out history.  They designed our Constitution to guard against these failures.  It’s time to return to that constitutions basic principles of a LIMITED government.

While the take down of Osama Bin Laden absorbs most of our collective media and personal attention a perhaps more urgent battle looms than the continuing “war on terror.”

Soon, congress will be faced again with the “necessity” to raise the debt limit to avoid financial default.  While the consequences of default are real and perhaps really unpleasant, the runaway debt and spending of the federal government is a much greater, more devastating danger.

He won’t win against Obama.  He is damaged goods.

Imagine no IRS. It's easy if you try.

With Republicans poised to once again have the Senate and maybe even the White House in 2012, it is time to push for the “Fair Tax.”

Watch the video and read the summary below.  I really would like to see your comments.

Smart, sarcastic and spot on!

Without trying to sound immodest, now and then I am unable to express my point of view better than expressed by someone else.

That is the case in this article by Ann Coulter.

I had truly been struggling for something to say.  Well, Ann did it for me.

So here, WITHOUT PERMISSION is Ann Coulter’s post on Public Sector unions and it is smart, sarcastic and spot on!

I recommend her website  Don’t sue me Ann.
