I'm An Increasingly Reluctant Republican Supporter, Here's Why

THE "ELECTION-TIME CONSERVATIVE" GOP NEEDS MY HELP

















I received an especially offensive, yet hilarious fundraising letter today from some fellow named Chris Carr, who is the Director of Panhandling for the Republican Party. He claimed that he needed my help and that I need to fill his outstretched pauper's cup. Well here is the original solicitation so you can see it for yourself, and my emailed response to Mr. Carr follows.

We need your help. Please don't glance over this. |

Fellow
Conservative, you are our Party’s only hope. [Why? Because our hopeless feckless people in congress refuse to take principled stands on any of the issues...]
We must raise $18,726 by MIDNIGHT TONIGHT or we will start the election already behind the Democrats.

If Hillary or Bernie wins in 2016, Obama’s dream to fundamentally change America will become a reality.

I know you want to stop them and elect a Republican president in 2016. And yes, it will be a Republican.

But it WILL NOT happen unless we have the resources to win.
This is the LAST fundraising deadline before voting starts.

Our candidates are relying on us to secure the resources to win [and stay in power, and do nothing except preserve the status-quo?]. And after Obama’s litany of failures, they stand a chance of winning.

Americans have spent the last seven years watching our president tour the world apologizing for the greatest country ever to exist.

We’ve experienced the worst terrorist attack since 9/11. We’ve seen $150 billion shoveled over to the greatest state sponsor of terrorism on the planet. We’ve seen ISIS terrorize the free world.
To think that another liberal elitist could “lead” this country makes me sick.

This November, I don’t want to just beat the Democrats, I want to usher in a CRUSHING victory -- sending a message that America refuses four more years of failure and disaster.

Losing is not an option. We must win.

And that means hitting our budget by MIDNIGHT.

Fellow Conservative, I will personally see to it that you helped our Party meet this goal.

I trust you won’t disappoint me.
Stand up to Obama, fight for our candidates, and make January the best month in conservative history.

Thanks,

Chris Carr
Political Director
Republican National Committee

Isn't it ironic that RNC is asking me to stand up to President Obama, when the GOP members of both houses of Congress will not? It is also outrageous that use the mantle of "conservative" only during campaigns. After winning the past two elections these bold "conservatives" morph into mild Mindy's who go-along-to-get-along. Enough I say enough! Here is my irate response to Mr. Carr:

Chris Carr -

Sorry, but I only support conservative candidates, Mr. Carr. I send money directly to their websites or to the Senate Conservative Fund. I do not want my funds allocated to the John Kasichs John McCains or Rob Portmans of the so-called Republican Party. I am very very disappointed that the congressional GOP leadership and many members have not stood up the Democrat's and the President's hurtful Progressive agenda. Instead, they fully funded it with the omnibus bill with little or no real opposition!

It is just outrageous that Planned Parenthood, the Syrian Refugee Resettlement Program, the President's Executive Amnesty and ObamaCare are all funded to the amazement and satisfaction of Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Schultz and Barack Obama!

It may be time for a third party to emerge because both the Democrats and the Republicans seem to be working hand in hand. Not a penny more!

The "Deal Maker" versus the "Real Deal" 2016

Breaking news this morning:  TRUMP SAYS HE WILL NOT BE PARTICIPATING IN THURSDAY'S GOP PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.

So how about this:

Hey, Donald Trump why don't you take Senator Ted Cruz up on his challenge to debate him mano a mano, without Megyn Kelly, BEFORE Monday's Iowa caucus? You can run for President, but you can't hide you Progressive underpinnings!

How about a Pay-Per-View televised event, featuring the "Deal Maker" versus the "Real Deal" 2016, with all proceeds benefiting our Veterans?


Donald, I bet you would refuse THAT deal because you've got a whole lot to conceal!

This idea may catch on, here's a website encouraging such a duel:  
Tell Ducking Donald to Debate Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz, A Bigger Danger than Donald Trump, Really?

I saw an article today published by the radical leftist website, AlterNet. I was intrigued by the title, "5 Reasons Ted Cruz Is Even More Dangerous Than Donald Trump, Both men would be disasters for America, but Cruz would be the bigger disaster." I have disagreed with almost everything I have ready by the author, Robert Reich.

The following is an excerpt from the article,
1. He’s more fanatical. Trump is a bully and bigot but doesn’t hew to any sharp ideological line. Cruz is a fierce ideologue: He denies the existence of man-made climate change, rejects same-sex 'marriage', wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service, believes the 2nd amendment guarantees everyone a right to guns, doesn’t believe in a constitutional divide between church and state, favors the death penalty, opposes international agreements, embraces a confrontational foreign policy, rejects immigration reform, demands the repeal of “every blessed word of Obamacare,” and takes a strict “originalist” view of the meaning of the Constitution. 
You can read the entire article for yourself by clicking here. Here are my comments which I made on AlterNet to the article:

Robert "You're Almost Never" Reich, here is what I think…


1. Surprisingly your description of Senator Ted Cruz in your first point is fairly accurate and exactly my position as well. However, you claim that Sen. Cruz "rejects immigration reform." More accurately, he rejects amnesty if that is what you call "immigration reform." Unlike the current occupier of the White House Sen. Cruz will enforce the current immigration laws, secure our borders, crackdown on illegals overstaying their visas , etc ... Reform comes later.


2. You state that Sen. Cruz "detests the federal government." No, he opposes the Washington Cartel, the amalgamation of politicians on both side of the aisle which are tied to crony capitalists joined at the hip to lobbyists, the Chamber of Commerce, all working in tandem for an ever-expanding federal government and bureaucracy. He opposes the federal government doing more than the constitution’s enumerated powers… He opposes the increasing deficit and national debt triggered in large part by the largesse of the federal government.


5. You make the crazy assertion that Sen. Cruzis a loner who’s willing to destroy institutions.” On the contrary he is adamant about protecting and preserving the Constitution, Religious Liberty, the sanctity of the institution of marriage, Gun Rights, the Rule of Law, the intact natural family…


You seem to disparage Sen. Cruz saying, “Most of his Republican colleagues in the Senate detest him.” I mark this as a badge of courage. He has principles that he is unwilling to relinquish. The Democrats and the RINOs in the Senate perpetuate an entrenched status quo. Yes, Sen. Cruz bucks the system. The system needs a swift kick!


I do agree with you Mr. Reich that Trump would be a disaster. Like President Obama, Trump would be an unmitigated disaster. However, Senator Cruz, on the other hand, would be an instrument of renewal, resurgence of American exceptionalism and an antidote for the perversity governance both political parties have foisted upon us these past 8 to 10 years.

Why We Should Not Accept the Syrian Islamic Refugee Poison Pill?

I saw this important tweet from Susan @sdv92 this afternoon. It captures the essence of the problem in accepting any Muslim Iraqi or Syrian refugees without proper and complete vetting. I don't trust the current administration in doing any effective vetting.

Isn't it bad enough that our borders are essentially unsecured, expired visas are ignored, and our immigration laws are not being enforced?

March for Life 2016, #WhyWeMarch?

The 43rd March for Life, since the horrific and unjust Roe v. Wade Supreme Court edict, is being streamed online. Click here

Sanctity of Life Sunday 2016, Mansfield, Ohio

A group of hearty souls marched Sunday afternoon to the downtown square in Mansfield, Ohio to mark the tragic 43th Anniversary of the unfathomably wicked United States Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade. That decision singlehandedly "legalized" the mass murder of babies throughout the United States. Allowing abortion-on-demand can only be called an American atrocity, a holocaust. What it means is that nearly 60 million American lives were prematurely terminated since that dreaded edict. Innocent lives condemned to death before they had a chance at life.

If those facts weren't chilling enough, the temperature at the event was around 19 degrees, but with the wind chill factored in, it was maybe 12 degrees. The main speaker, who drove in from Toledo, thankfully abbreviated his message so that the crowd would survive to march again.

Here are a few of the signs on display at the Gazebo on the Square in downtown Mansfield:
