Revolution

I’ve talked with friends of mine, most of whom are not politically connected, and tell them how bad it is, especially for the Conservatives in this country. I’ve often told them that at some point, there will be a rise of the quiet majority who have had enough, and take back what is theirs. 

I read a story this morning about Pro-Immigration supporters who decided to storm a house of Eric Cantor. The opinion by-line asked “when was the last time conservatives stormed anything?” (http://weaselzippers.us/2013/11/21/pro-illegal-immigration-protesters-storm-eric-cantors-home/)

The question posed has nothing to do with the point of the story, more the way it was asked. Why haven’t conservatives risen up to this point? We see our rights being more and more limited everyday, forced to pay more in taxes to support a government that can’t pass, let alone live with a budget. 

When does the revolution begin? Who starts it? There are more things going on now, that restrict what we can do, more taxes than we’ve ever had before, and there is no sign of it coming to an end anytime soon. Our forefathers fought a revolution because they were being taxed by a tyrant. 

What is the difference here? Obamacare is a bill that is despised by more than half the US population, yet it was passed. It creates another tax on those who work, only to give it to people who don’t. The percentage of taxation that the King wanted from the colonies was nothing, and they revolted. We were all taught it while we were young. No taxation without representation. 

Who is representing us now? We have elections, but which government branch have we elected that has kept his or her promises? Which one of them has told us what we wanted to hear, then did exactly that? While some of the population believes that we should continue paying these tax rates, most of us don’t. Those that do have a socialist mindset, or are the ones among us that just continue to leach off the system.

When does it begin? When do the ones who have been quietly watching this country slip into complacency stop letting it all just happen and revolt? Will it take an even bigger money grab by the government from the people who actually produce things in this country?

Atlas Shrugged suggests that the doers in this country will simply stop doing. An actual war type revolution may never happen, and I’m okay with that. But at some point, it will be too much. What happens then?

The revolution is coming.  In one way or another its coming. Eventually, we will run out of other peoples money.

Lies, Manipulation and Fraud

As I begin everyday, i open up my browser, and a plethora of news sites pop up. Its what I enjoy, and gives me a pretty good perspective of to whats going on in the country and world. Of course, the sites that I look at first skew to the right, and I saw a very interesting article.

“[T]he results overall represent a sharp turnaround in fortune for Obama and his party, which just a month ago were ascendant over the Republicans in views of the budget dispute that led to a partial government shutdown. Today 45 percent of Americans call Obama “too liberal,” matching the high, and 46 percent say the same about the Democratic Party. And perhaps adding insult to injury, registered voters divide numerically in Mitt Romney’s favor, 49-45 percent, if they had a mulligan for the 2012 presidential election. While the difference between the two is within the poll’s error margin, Obama’s support is 6 points below his actual showing a year ago.”

Amazing! Obama has done something so awful, that if Americans could do it over again, they wouldn’t vote for him. Which got me to thinking. This is just a generic question. What could it be that hes done, that would change so many minds? Alright, that may be an easy one. Tax hikes, Obamacare, Benghazi, IRS scandals to name a few. 

I was a bit annoyed by that story, but then I saw this. Census ‘faked’ 2012 election jobs report. Without you having to actually click the link, the story goes into detail on how fraud led to a sharp decrease in the unemployment numbers right before the election. As we know, this development led Obama to claim that what he was doing was working. Thus, the slim lead he held, grew, and therefore won the election. 

I thought after the first election that there was fraud involved, and that someone, somewhere knows that he cheated his way in, but since nothing ever came to light, passed it off as fair. I didn’t like it, but was forced to accept it. 

Now, as more and more stories come in about things being skewed in the media regarding the lead up to the election, I seem to have a better reason to doubt the fact that this is a legitimate presidency. 

Welcome

I’ve gotten away from writing over the last 4 years, and have decided to do it again. I was “discovered” by a very entertaining writer while I was on MySpace, (Yeah, that was long ago) and thrived. But, things happen, life and a real job gets in the way, and I stopped. 

Now, since I’ve got a desk job, and more down time than I used to have, I’d like to share with the world my views and thoughts on various issues. 

My main topics are Politics and sports. I have a great passion for both, and talk about them regularly with friends and coworkers, but need another place to express my thoughts. 

I look forward to writing, and for you to garnish a bit of entertainment, provide some insightful thoughts, and increase your intelligence so that you too can have better conversations outside the confines of the Web. 

Glad to be back!
