Voting ABO in 2012

I have been asked by quite a few people who I intend to vote for President in 2012.   I tell them all that I am voting ABO, that is Anyone But Obama.   I am really at the point that I do not believe that we can do much worse that this would be despot that now occupies the White House.  He is a Marxist, a liar and a demagogue.  So, I will vote for anyone running against him.   That means I will vote for a Republican, any Republican.   That does not mean that the eventual Republican candidate will necessarily be my all-time favorite candidate.   Likely far from it, but any of them will be vastly superior to Obama.  At this time, my favorite of the Republican candidates is Newt Gingrich.  While he does have some baggage, he is clearly the smartest and best prepared person for the office of the Presidency.   So, GO NEWT!

Voting Day Thoughts

It is finally here, the 2010 midterm elections.  That a midterm election has become such a big deal is significant in its own right.  However, the reason for that is even more significant.  Frankly, the people are not happy – not in the least.  The people have seen their country hijacked by Barack Hussein Obama and his Socialist cohorts in the Congress and do not like it one bit.   The people have reawakened with a desire to return to constitutional governance after decades of freewheeling growth in the federal government.  The people want their country back and they want the country, the Republic, that the Founding Fathers intended.   From this passion has arose the TEA Party movement, and it is sweeping the country.   What began primarily as a tax revolt, has turned into a greater political movement to return to the principles of our country’s founding and the Constitution.   It is about time!  If you have not gone out to vote yet, please do so.   Exercise your right to vote and vote for the most conservative candidate you can.

MAN UP!

Lately, I have heard several political candidates and commentators use the phrat a se “man up!”  Of course, this is not a new phase.  On the milder side, it means “get a grip”, while on the meaner side it means “grow a pair!” (I do not think an explanation is necessary…).   Today I ran across a website that is devoted to helping men to MAN UP!    I think you will enjoy it.  Many men need it.  Many women just might understand men a bit better after reading it.    The Art of Manliness

John Boehner final words…

House Minority Leader, John Boehner, delivers final opposition just prior to the disastrous health care bill vote in the House of Representatives on 03/21/2010.  I am so proud of him.  Among TRUE PATRIOTS, it may be remembered in the tradition of Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty, or Give Me Death” speech.

—————————————–

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, “Peace! Peace!” — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

Patrick Henry – March 23, 1775

The Mount Vernon Statement

The Mount Vernon Statement

Constitutional Conservatism: A Statement for the 21st Century

We recommit ourselves to the ideas of the American Founding.Through the Constitution, the Founders created an enduring framework of limited government based on the rule of law. They sought to secure national independence, provide for economic opportunity, establish true religious liberty and maintain a flourishing society of republican self-government.

These principles define us as a country and inspire us as a people. They are responsible for a prosperous, just nation unlike any other in the world. They are our highest achievements, serving not only as powerful beacons to all who strive for freedom and seek self-government, but as warnings to tyrants and despots everywhere.

Each one of these founding ideas is presently under sustained attack. In recent decades, America’s principles have been undermined and redefined in our culture, our universities and our politics. The selfevident truths of 1776 have been supplanted by the notion that no such truths exist. The federal government today ignores the limits of the Constitution, which is increasingly dismissed as obsolete and irrelevant.

Some insist that America must change, cast off the old and put on the new. But where would this lead — forward or backward, up or down? Isn’t this idea of change an empty promise or even a dangerous deception?

The change we urgently need, a change consistent with the American ideal, is not movement away from but toward our founding principles. At this important time, we need a restatement of Constitutional conservatism grounded in the priceless principle of ordered liberty articulated in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

The conservatism of the Declaration asserts self-evident truths based on the laws of nature and nature’s God. It defends life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It traces authority to the consent of the governed. It recognizes man’s self-interest but also his capacity for virtue.

The conservatism of the Constitution limits government’s powers but ensures that government performs its proper job effectively. It refines popular will through the filter of representation. It provides checks and balances through the several branches of government and a federal republic.

A Constitutional conservatism unites all conservatives through the natural fusion provided by American principles. It reminds economic conservatives that morality is essential to limited government, social conservatives that unlimited government is a threat to moral self-government, and national security conservatives that energetic but responsible government is the key to America’s safety and leadership role in the world.

A Constitutional conservatism based on first principles provides the framework for a consistent and meaningful policy agenda.

  • It applies the principle of limited government based on the rule of law to every proposal.
  • It honors the central place of individual liberty in American politics and life.
  • It encourages free enterprise, the individual entrepreneur, and economic reforms grounded in market solutions.
  • It supports America’s national interest in advancing freedom and opposing tyranny in the world and prudently considers what we can and should do to that end.
  • It informs conservatism’s firm defense of family, neighborhood, community, and faith.

If we are to succeed in the critical political and policy battles ahead, we must be certain of our purpose.

We must begin by retaking and resolutely defending the high ground of America’s founding principles.
