Election 2012: Reviewing Candidates


Sincerity and resolve is what should have been seen, ignoring the media rhetoric of watching lip movement and other features that indicate otherwise when it came to Mitt Romney presentation in the debates.
BH Obama showed how much he and his cohorts have lied to the American people, and has no real record to reflect positively upon in the last four years. He and his company have only negative campaigning in their arsenal and false accusation like getting rid of social security and/or cutting out senior Medicare.

While nonsense came from the mouth of Obama, common sense and realism came from Romney …

The mantle of … leadership for promoting the principles of peace has fallen to America. We didn’t ask for it, but it’s an honor that we have it. But for us to be able to promote those principles of peace requires us to be strong, and that begins with a strong economy here at home, and unfortunately, the economy is not stronger. … We have to stand by our principles. And if we’re strong in each of those things, American influence will grow. But unfortunately, in nowhere in the world is America’s influence greater today than it was four years ago.
From the very beginning, the president, in his campaign some four years ago, said he’d meet with all the world’s worst actors in his first year. … And then the president began what I’ve called an apology tour of going to — to various nations in the Middle East and — and criticizing America. I think they looked at that and saw weakness. … Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.
This nation is the hope of the earth. We’ve been blessed by having a nation that’s free and prosperous thanks to the contributions of the Greatest Generation. They’ve held a torch for the world to see, the torch of freedom and hope and opportunity. Now it’s our turn to take that torch. I’m convinced we’ll do it.

A good example that Obama and Biden are only armed with making fun of political opponents because they have no facts to rely upon, columnist Michael Walsh, wrote:

Speaking as the son of a Marine Corps officer and the brother of a Navy officer, I think Obama’s ‘horses and bayonets’ wisecrack wasn’t his biggest miscalculation. All that did was lose him the military vote in the Norfolk area and thus, most likely, the state of Virginia. Rather, it was the weird way he kept conflating the war-fighting purpose of the military with ‘taking care’ of the veterans after they come home. Military personnel deeply resent the implication, so earnestly peddled by the bed-wetting civilians at the New York Times, among others, that returning vets are just a PTSD psycho hair-trigger away from going postal. They’re soldiers, Mr. President, not crybabies.

DNC chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Shultz illustrates how out of touch the Democrats are when she said:
What I was surprised about … during the entire section of the debate on the Middle East, Mitt Romney didn’t bring up Israel once and I think it just shows he isn’t committed to Israel as he says he is and has really only used the issue as a political opportunity

Counting the times Romney mentioned Israel in the last debate equals eleven. Hopefully other Americans have caught this spin, the lie, the misinformation that the DNC is so good at.
Of course, the famous ridiculous line about horses and bayonets is the talk of pundits:

First of all, the sequester is not something that I proposed. It’s something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen. … [Gov. Romney] mentioned … that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military’s changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines. And so the question is not a game of ‘Battleship’ where we’re counting ships.

Then there is the denial that he went on an “Apology Tour” in his first year, which resulted in degradation of respect for the United States. …

Nothing Governor Romney just said is true, starting with this notion of me apologizing. This has been probably the biggest whopper that’s been told during the course of this campaign, and every fact-checker and every reporter who’s looked at it, Governor, has said this is not true.

And probably the most damning statement:

You know, over the last four years, we’ve made real progress digging our way out of policies that gave us two prolonged wars, record deficits and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. And Governor Romney wants to take us back to those policies.

One thing was refreshing – not one mention of “climate change” from either candidate. What a relief and small favor that is. Our government has wasted billions of dollars on the so-called “global warming” or “climate change” theory; and if it were true the reality is that no matter how many billions are spent, Mother Nature will have her way. There is not a damn thing anyone can do about it but prepare and adapt. Such things have occurred LONG before industrialization, which the whiners complain is at fault. Living in a cold, temperate region, I would welcome some “global warming”. The Great Lakes sure need water to bring its levels back up.
I hope by now Americans are seeing that Obama cannot be our president for another four years, and Congress requires a thorough cleaning – removing Democrats, but not replacing them with RINOs. We need constitutionally minded politicians who, after the election process is over, actually do what they get paid to do.
My list of important matters to attend to in 2013:
  • Repeal the 16th Amendment and pass the Fair Tax Act. Get rid of the inefficient IRS agency and transform it into a small department for auditing. It certainly requires its power to be cut off.
  • Begin a program to reform or get rid of social programs and its agencies and offices.
  • Examine legislation passed within at least the last ten years and delete or rewrite those hurriedly passed through Congress with no care of what it causes.
  • Require that all legislation pass a constitutional panel and any bill presented must not have unrelated amendments/additions to it that has nothing to do with the purpose of the bill. The quantity of legislation passed is not the purpose or should be primary, but the quality of legislation and its short- and long-term impact.
There is more, but these are what pop first in my mind.
Yet, in reality, in order for the government to reform, society must also reform itself at the same time, and change its way of thinking, methodology of politics, and how our government operates. We need to self-educate ourselves with knowledge of the Constitution and its amendments, and how our government was intended to work. This makes a more informed citizen and a responsible voter. Americans certainly cannot depend upon government controlled education
