POLITICS – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Can you imagine how life would be if we celebrated Christmas just one day every week? How about celebrating the Fourth of July and Mother’s Day every Tuesday 52 times a year? Or maybe we could have Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday of every month. Yesterday was Halloween, maybe we should celebrate it every month on the 28th.
No, I have not suffered any malady, I am just sick of having my favorite fall TV shows pre-emptied for politics. In fact I am totally disturbed trying to just watch the news anymore as 20 percent of the time is for commercials and when political silly season gets in high gear after New Year’s this will be mostly political ads.
Has anyone noticed that America is 100 percent driven by politics today? Every decision made by the President, all government agencies, Congress, the Supreme, the majority of every Court in the land and all media outlets are primarily made for the political advantages for someone. The amount of money spent to control every decision made would probably exceed our total national debt every year.
I will offer some interesting suggestions and my first one is that for every dollar spent in the entire nation to pay for any political purpose would require an equal amount be paid in taxes. This would be from every election in America including city, county, state and national events. We may not be able to stop people like George Soros and the thousands who donate or buy political advantages but we can make it more expensive. We watch and read all of the ways the rich and famous find ways around how much they can shovel to the candidates. Turn them loose and force the publication of every donation made and how much they are taxed when they buy political influence. Let every American know what it costs to buy any advantages from politicians.
One year from next Tuesday, November 4th 2016 we will have the elections that will decide whether we remain a Republic or finish the Liberal-Progressive transformation into a Socialist Democracy. I doubt fifty percent of Americans who will make that decision even understand what I am saying. If we had an honest media in America one of them would explain the difference before the primaries and the actual elections someday to educate the people. You can bet that neither political party nor 98% of all government employees, including those elected, would support my suggestion. I am certain no college or university would allow this to be a subject taught as the professors and administration are 98% bleeding heart liberals.
The liberals currently have 100% of all dead voters, others like Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, 50 million voters on welfare, SSI and the majority of all government employees. The Democrats are now trying to allow convicted criminals and in some states they have already allowed illegal immigrants to vote. I will be cremated by choice to prevent Demoncrats from seeing my name on a headstone while they fill out voter registrations in our cemeteries.
Democrats are so very close to having a solid majority that if Hillary wins there will be no need to ever have another Presidential election. They will anoint her as the first “Queen” of the “Socialist States of America. “United” is not a term used or promoted by the Demoncrats anymore.
It is time for someone to be a leader in America again. We are limited with choices as most have become career politicians. We have stripped the military with forced retirements of proven leaders. Obama has made a mockery of our laws by using Executive Orders to usurp our laws, especially with our immigration system. Cities and some states have openly avoided enforcing our laws and even the Supreme Court now uses empathy rather than enacted laws to make decisions. Congress is operating like an insane asylum on steroids in a boat with no rudder.
The rich and powerful are running scared that Americans might actually elect a President who is not a lifetime career politician. There are so many running for the Republican nomination these power brokers can’t decide on who to support so long as it is not Donald Trump.
I cast my first Presidential vote for Dwight Eisenhower as that was after I was 21 years old. I was not qualified to vote in the 1948 elections even though I was serving in the US Navy. I currently have 45 kids, grandkids and great grandkids counting spouses. Thirty nine of them will be eligible to vote next year and I doubt that ten of them will even read this article. Watching the educational system brainwash my own family has been one of the saddest events of my life. Five are lawyers, six are doctors and most are college graduates or they are currently in college.
My last proposal is to start a drive to limit political advertising, debates or even interviews to a window of time that starts six months before an election. This would limit politics in the media to six months every two years. If someone can’t decide in six months they are too dense to even vote. I am sick and tired of knowing what style of underwear they all wear and personal questions that have no bearing on someone’s qualifications. What difference does it make what church they attend, they aren’t running for “Preacher”.
We have three people trying to get the Republican nomination for President that are not Lawyers or career politicians. All appear qualified with education but only one is a proven leader. If the Republicans choose Donald Trump as their candidate Americans will have something to cheer about. He will make life uncomfortable for a lot of people in Washington DC and in my opinion most of them are truly deserving of an attitude adjustment. If he can abolish the IRS, Education Department, Department of Energy and shake up the Justice Department the rest of us can be happier. If he can force term limits on Congress he will save our Republic for another 200 years.

I take issue with you a bit on what religion a candidate is. Ben Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist who has stated a belief in the world being made 6000 years ago. That means no evolution, no dinosaurs, no ascent of man etc. etc. He also says he believes in Genesis and that the Bible is the only truth. If he believes in those then he probably also believes in the book of Revelations. Otherwise what is the point of his religion. That means he believes that Armageddon is the final battle between good and Evil for Jesus to return???? Do we want a President and world leader who really believes in killing millions for his superstitions? Worse still would revel in such a war! That question needs to be asked of him, but I doubt if it will. He would either have to state that he does believe in those things, which would destroy his credibility, or deny that he believes them and that would destroy him and his religion. So, to me, a candidates religion is very important.
Anyway, On the rest of your blog I am with you. The Donald would shake them all up!
You bring up an interesting subject I will explore. You do know Trump is my choice with Cruz as his VP. This combo would shake up the entire world and watching the Washington leeches run will be enjoyable.
