WHY ARIZONA DEFINES THE NOVEMBER ELECTION

June 29, 2010

The legal battle between Arizona and the federal government represents the single issue (that should matter) facing Americans concerned about their country’s direction.  The fact Arizona is about to be sued by the federal government over illegal immigration illustrates (better than any issue) how far left the government has gone from the center. This one major policy decision from the Obama White House proves the dire consequences created from electing far-left radicals into power!  The good news for Americans on the right and the middle politically is this one single issue can be bundled into other important issues about America’s future.  The bold decision by Arizona to pass a state law allowing enforcement action against illegal immigration touches every important national issue America faces today.  Consider the following when preparing to vote this fall:

Homeland Security – The federal government for strictly political reason refuses to make protecting our borders a high priority issue.  Our enemies (Islamic Terrorists) are taking advantage of our open border,  exposing America to another 9-11 type attack.  In addition, Americans in Border States are victimized by the Narco-wars between rival drug gangs that flow north from Mexico.  This robs local governments of vital public safety resources (made even worse) by shrinking budgets due to an economy in recession! 

Economy – America faces the worst recession since the depression of the 30s. Unemployment exceeding 10 percent is not good news.  There is no light at the end of the tunnel for our economy because of Obama’s reckless policy of more government spending to stimulate the economy.  That failed to work in Europe and it will not work here!  Obama failed to convince European leaders to increase government spending to stimulate their economies, why? Because Europe has hit a financial wall and cannot obtain loans to allow for more government spending. America is close to hitting the same financial wall!  Billions of tax dollars are lost when illegal immigrant work in the black market economy and send billions of dollars back to Mexico!  Any guess as to who makes up the difference?  Obama and Liberals in Congress believe the answer is you the middle class tax payer by allowing the Bush tax credits to expire in 2011 and then further hammering you with new taxes in 2011 that were hidden in the Obama-Care legislation.   

Healthcare – Best estimates are close to 20-million illegal immigrants currently reside in the US and using free health care when they show up at a hospital’s ER costing us   billions of dollars every year!  Much of the cost made up by higher insurance premiums and inflated hospital/medical costs passed onto the middle class tax payer.  The passage of Obama-care will mean the tab for 20 million illegal immigrants will get paid by middle class tax payers!  How?  The granting of amnesty making them all eligible for health-care and social security benefits! 

Social Security – If liberals maintain control in November they will quickly move to grant amnesty to all illegal immigrants currently residing in the US. Obama could make that happen prior to the election by signing an executive order granting amnesty. That would add an additional 20 million citizens to an already failing benefit program.  You don’t need to be a mathematician to figure out what that means for your future social security benefits.  The benefits you spent a life time paying for will be drained by 20 million new beneficiaries who paid a fraction of what you paid if they pay anything at all! 

Education – Schools boards across the nation are struggling to fund budgets that have been reduced already due to lower tax revenues.  Our children are being short-changed in obtaining a solid education because of it.  Obama wants to make it worse by adding the children of illegal immigrants whom will require special programs for teaching both English and Spanish along with other educational issues as a result of this massive influx of children who do not speak English. Look to California’s school system to understand the impact it will have on other states once they absorb 20 million illegal immigrants! 

Public Safety – The borders shared with Mexico are not safe today because of inaction by the federal government.  Liberals running government realize their future is dependant upon those 20 million illegal citizens viewed as Democrats!  That is why they are willing to risk endangering American citizens and police officers by ignoring existing federal law on illegal immigration.  Studies show many illegally crossing the border are “drug mules” bringing in marijuana and cocaine/heroin from Mexico.  Organized criminals use the open borders to smuggle Mexican citizens into the US for illegal purposes.   The liberals ignore it because they are gambling they can keep most Americans in the dark until they have solidified their grip on power. Our prison systems are struggling to house illegal Mexicans who are incarcerated for crimes committed here in the US.  We should remember all of this if Liberals win in November! 

Taxes – All of the above issues stemming from illegal immigration cost billions of dollars in both government programs and loss of tax revenues.  The costs are paid by middle class Americans.  America is mortgaging the future of our grand children to subsidize people who do not belong here! This is why it is dangerous to ignore the issue and allow liberals to remain in power.  The Liberal vision for America is an all-powerful government which comes at the expense of our freedom.  If you look at any country that is controlled by a socialist government you will find one common element.  None of them have a wealthy middle class.  That is the price paid for socialism which feeds off and eventually destroys the working middle class. 

Conclusion – Governor Brewer from Arizona and other conservative leaders understand what Obama and the liberals in congress are attempting.  There is an important battle being waged today that will shape the future of America. As we get closer to November, Americans must think carefully about our future.  The hope and change promised by Obama and liberals was nothing short of a huge lie to Americans wanting change in political leadership, not a change in our way of life!

VIOLENCE OR PROTEST?

June 27, 2010

The G 20 summit has been plagued by violent protests by far left extremists who have taken to the streets and burned vehicles/buildings and battled police assigned to security for the summit.  The photo on the left is a police car burned by G 20 summit protestors.  Compare that photo with the one on the right where Americans concerned about the direction Obama is taking the country came out to protest his policies.  

You only hear about the violence from Fox News or websites like, Heritage Foundation and American Thinker who are pledged to getting the truth out to the American people.  It was only last summer when American citizens were protesting Obama-care by attending town hall meetings and speaking out against national healthcare, and holding  peaceful protests outside the offices of their elected representatives.  The mainstream media provided extensive coverage to those protests and labled the participants dangerous and violent.  Most of them were Grandma and Grandpa who were rightfully concerned about their medicare benefits.  The media portrayed them as America’s Most Wanted Criminals!

Only an idiot would fail to see the hypocrisy occuring today in the media.  The mainstream media (in my opinion) has severely damaged their credibility as an unbiased news source.  Their partnership and agenda with liberals to convert America into a socialist country and thus destroy our middle class  is disturbing.   ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC are propoganda mechanisms for the Liberals running the country today.  With the help of God and middle class Americans fed up with losing their freedom, that will all change in November.

Rules of Engagement

June 24, 2010

There is an important lesson to be learned from the General McChrystal issue.  When America decides to go to war it should be just that.  This is not the first time America has been at war and forced to fight with one hand tied behind its back.  That is exactly the position politicians have placed our military in to fight this current war.  Obama made it a point to emphasis there will be NO change in policy. 

General McChrystal was wrong to publicly criticize President Obama who is the Commander of Chief of the armed forces and his boss!  Any member of the military or veteran understands this important point about chain of command.  It was certain that President Obama would fire the General for this critical remarks published in a magazine with a political agenda against war. The real issue that created this controversy, the rules of engagement, has been lost in the debate over the General’s remarks and that is unfortunate!

The criticism vented by General McChrystal and other military leaders in private are valid concerns on the prosecution of the Afghanistan war.  Obama’s Security Council is unwilling to prosecute this war to a decisive conclusion.  Why? They fear upsetting their liberal base who opposes any war.  General Petraeus is a great military leader who has earned each of his four stars and the respect of the nation. But, even with all of his experience and skills, it will still be difficult to win a war when his civilian bosses (National Security Advisors) refuse to take the gloves off during the fight.  They cannot even agree amongst themselves on how to fight this war. Some remember these same people prior to the election (Obama and Hillary Clinton) were General Petraeus’ chief critics when Petraeus was running the war in Iraq, Hillary going as far as calling him a liar!  Remember their nick name for him? “General Betray-us”! 

I look forward to hearing from General McChrystal in the coming months after his retirement, when he is free to express his opinions about how this war is being managed.  We have our best men and women in harm’s way and they deserve every protection and means to complete their mission.  The General may have a promising career as a military expert for Fox News giving Americans a chance to hear the truth about what is happening in the Afghanistan war. This will be helpful in the fall elections when real change is made in Congress.

ON OFF TAX!

June 16, 2010

America is gripped by the worst man-made disaster in history.  Last night we were led to believe Obama would speak to the nation and outline his strategy for stopping this disaster.  Instead Obama uses the time to give a speech that was more political in nature than informative!  That should not surprise most Americans.  It is becoming exceedingly clear that Obama is in way over his head and is incompetent at leadership during a crisis.  There was no substance in last night’s speech to give any hope of a plan to end the ongoing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. After the speech many were reminded of the old Wendy’s commercial.  “Where is the Beef?”  

Instead of showing leadership and giving Americans hope, Obama used this crisis to push forward his political agenda.  If Obama gets his way and Congress approves the Cap and Trade bill (What he talked about last night) it will be another disaster.  This time it will be  America’s economy in crisis!  Obama’s energy bill should be named “On Off Tax”, because every time you turn on anything requiring energy, it will cost you more in taxes…  Keep that in mind when you’re voting this November.

HOW TO PLUG THE DARN HOLE!

June 10, 2010

The four Captains from Discovery’s “Deadliest Catch” were down in LA visiting the Gulf of Mexico to view first hand the oil spill and give their support to the area fishing industry suffering from the economic disaster of the BP oil spill.  

After viewing the federal government’s efforts to stop the leak they came up with this great solution that will not only plug the hole in the gulf but also plug the huge hole in the American treasury.   You have to love American ingenuity coupled with common sense.

CAN FLORIDA TRUST CHARLIE CRIST?

June 8, 2010

Charlie Crist has more than Florida’s impending oil spill disaster to worry about.  A political scandal is brewing that threatens to pull him and his chances for the US Senate right into its center. 

Charlie Crist claimed not to know anything about the deal that allowed his handpicked state GOP chair, Jim Greer, to take 10% off the top of Republican campaign funds.  That sounds a lot like what a career politician would say when attempting to throw a close friend under the bus to save himself from a jail cell!   Greer’s attorney accused Crist of lying and said that the Governor “personally approved” the fundraising arrangement.  The idea came from the man who Crist appointed as the placeholder for the Senate seat Crist now seeks, (George LeMieux) according to Greer’s attorney. 

The coming weeks will be very interesting for Charlie Crist’s political future.  He is already slipping in the polls against Marco Rubio for the US Senate.  This scandal certainly cannot help his chances for winning the election.  Americans are fed up with career politicians and the corruption that comes with it.  Charlie Crist has been tainted by the Jim Greer scandal by virtue of his close friendship and his appointment of Greer to the State GOP leadership position.  He then defended him even after everyone else in the GOP wanted Greer to resign.  If Charlie Crist cares about Florida and the people as he claims he would get out of the Senate race now.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION DOES HURT!

June 3, 2010

The issue of Arizona‘s immigration law will be on the table today as Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ) goes to the White House to meet President Obama to discuss Arizona’s law that is viewed by Obama and liberals as discriminatory and unconstitutional. 

The meeting comes only after public pressure mounted on the White House to meet with the Governor after they first declined the meeting.  The President has been anything but helpful in the debate on enforcing our border and taking enforcement action against illegal immigrants.  This issue has severely divided Americans the majority favoring the stance Arizona has taken to enforce the law to protect U.S. citizens against the illegal activity and drain on our economy that comes with open borders!   

The media has done a wonderful job spinning this controversy to favor the liberal position that illegal immigrants are treated unfairly and deserve the freedom and opportunity America offers them.  That is a load of crap and the Democratic National Party (DNC) is now totally on the side of the far left in support of it for one reason!  They need the 12 million potential voters to maintain complete power if illegal immigrants are given citizenship!  That is the issue; there is nothing else that matters to them. The DNC is willing to roll the dice and invest America’s financial future on this huge gamble!  This gamble is already bankrupting California, Colorado and Arizona’s state treasuries.  Here are a few examples: 

They (illegal aliens) pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes…what happens to your country’s economy if 20 million people go away?”  

In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupted hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested.  Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominate language again. 

In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grand-kids – would move back”home,” mostly to Mexico, that would save Coloradans an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 BIL) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone. 

Over $80 billion annually wouldn’t return to their home countries by cash transfers. Illegal immigrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America’s economy – which currently suffers a $9.3 trillion debt!

At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle.  At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupted out of business. 

Think about it. (Something the DNC does not like)  They prefer you allow them to do the thinking for you.  Look where that has gotten America!  We MUST wake up and take back the control we have ceded over to a government we no longer even recognize!
