Looking at the stark differences of the two presidential candidates, through the rhetoric of the party’s trying to exploit the weaknesses of their rivals. There seem to be this imagined great divide, impossible to bridge for Romney, in order to become the next president of the United States of America.
But then these are the rivals presentations of political slight of hand politics. Political theater for the purposes of manipulations of the uninformed population about Romney.
In war you must exploit your enemy’s weaknesses in order to gain the upper hand. With politics, which is nothing more than a battle of ideas within the minds of the general public. Shouldn’t politicians use the great power of persuasion to convince the greater portion of the populist? That should be the plan, or the pure political goal. The way to go. In order gain the greatest positive future, not just for one group, but for everyone united in the same way, within the same social goal outlined. Where is such a pure politician in the political theater of today?
Should a politician offer a compromise for the sake of getting along? Abandoning principals at the expense of values deteriorated? Or should values be explained as what the differences should be, as why, or what you stand for, and why these values are so important.
An example as how ridicules some policy’s really are: The principal of a balanced budget, as a posed to tax and spend political ideas.
As to who did what in the past isn’t the issues of today. There is enough blame to go around for every political party of the past to the present day. To compromise for the sake of compromise isn’t building a positive future. Nor is it a good presentation to the country. The ideas of tax and spend with no end in sight isn’t good either, or balancing the budget based on some futuristic growth model of fantasy’s never to be realized.
The Gop seem to finely grasp just what is at stake, along with what tactic to use in explaining to the people to gain their support. Principled compromise, along with persuasive presentations offered as the explanation for why spending more than what you make isn’t the future that we would like to give our children. Principled politicians, along with the use of principled compromises in negotiations, is also the easiest way to give an explanation to why tax and spend doesn’t work, except to grow government. Or to create a cool government or politician.
Bankrupcy is never good, and never considered to be successful. Why drive the country to that point? All the while living a personal life differently then what you present? Politicians never explain this fact except by the use of blizzards of lies and distortions to hide the facts of truth.
Should our presidents just posses a ” Cool Factor “? Coolness only lasts for a period of time and then reality sets in once again. In other words problems covered with plastic wrap, like an excrement sandwich, then left out in the sun. Isn’t dealing with the problem! Nobody want’s to eat an excrement sandwich, net alone yesterday’s wrapped, with plastic thin coolness.
We need more than coolness. What we need is public policy’s, and honest politicians presenting them. For the purposes of uniting a nation in common interests, common goals, for the common good. Both in the present, and in future times yet to be given to the next generation.
So then Obama was right! He said. ” There is no red state, no blue state. “
This clearly references the democratic, or republican states in this union. But the political battle isn’t about such numbered stats, nor is it about numbering states, or people who live in them as democrats, or republican.
Ronald Reagan some 40 years ago said it like this. ” It isn’t about if we go right or left. But it is the differences between going up or down. “
So my countrymen and women. It isn’t good to just support the political party, that spews deceptions just because. They along with false promises hope to remain in power through the use of fraud. We need politicians who will put themself’s last in the order of things. Along with doing only what will impact the nation’s future most positively. We must recognize that it is our generation who has less time to live. As well less time to out-live our mistakes politically should we make them. Adults politicians bare the responsibility’s non the less, to pass down to the next generation, at the very least, the same Liberty’s, freedoms, and the same ability to pursue improvements of our God-given talents, to be used in pursuit of our own happiness.
Every child instinctively knows about the simplest forms, of living in a meritocracy. Every child loves the pat on the back, or the loving praise gained after a simple accomplishment presented to their parents. The simplest form of an example of a meritocracy. So why should we as adults leave this simple truth behind? Why is it wrong for any one to use their God-given talents to the greatest gain for themself’s? What is wrong with acting on behalf of our own benefits, using the practice of self-interest, along with charity giving, to make a better existence?
” The goal of the adolescent is in the search for identity! “
Children do everything in one form or the other for the recognition of accomplishments through merit. At times these young people seek identity through peer-pressure. The poplar lime light for the purposes of being liked by everyone the same. But individually seek recognition for their accomplishments, and achievements by the way of receiving a payment through merit, brought about by hard work. They gain individual identity’s. Who hasn’t seen a child excited about presenting a graded paper with a ” A” on it? When have you seen any child presenting with the same excitement for a paper with a ” F ” on it? Learning about merit they become adult individuals ready to take on the uncertain world, in pursuit of happiness, with no certain guarantees to it all.
The heart of capitalism works best with a healthy possibility of failure to it!
Example; Individual achievements by working harder, or by more overtime for the purposes of gaining the promotion. Doing many things at times that gives us little to look for immediately, other than an opportunity to be recognised, receiving our repayment later in time through our merits.
For politicians to do any thing but offering a positive vision, a bold stark differences of their view against those views of their rivals. To reenforce policy’s, as well compleat presentations of those policy’s in order to gain a positive future. Is to then except having to stick to the issues, over the temptations of getting involved with politics of adolescent name calling.
Despite this Mr. Obama has only done exactly this. Avoiding talking about his record, avoiding his ridiculous policy’s, avoiding to explain his outrageous spending and run up of debt. Net alone explain how all of this debt isn’t going to be an impossible amount to repay for our future countrymen, and women. Never really explaining the large unemployment rate ( Over 8%). For the black population ( up to 13%) now. Or how to reduce it! All of which is just asking Mr. Obama to explain away policy’s of failure. Where is your positive vision for the future Mr. Obama?
My case isn’t the stark differences of these political party’s. But rather whether or not the republicans can present the facts of what works and what doesn’t.
Up till now Mr. Obama has just argued away facts with distortions of the true facts, or the tactic of fear, along with the use of name calling thrown into the mix like… the over use of calling someone who doesn’t agree with you a ” racist ” !! Distortions and manipulations for the purposes of hiding the facts.
” You can not prove a counter factual Mr. Obama! “
So in comparison let’s have a short run down. Every state where a conservative governor has ben voted into office. These states have out preformed the status quo of the rest of the states who have liberal governors, and policy’s in place.
Compare California vs. Texas, or Virgina vs. Maryland. Texas and Virgina have lower unemployment, lower debts, lower taxes. As a-posed to their counter parts mentioned. The state of Wisconsin Tried to recall the governor and lost big. Wisconsin’s policy’s put in place, is now bringing the state around to a balanced budget and lowering their unemployment rates. All with out rasing taxes like Mr. Obama has been looking to do.
On gas and oil exploration one only has to look to north Dakota. They have an economic boom going on right now. With less than 4% unemployment.
Even among liberal left coast states. The only state that is also democrat party controlled, and doesn’t have an income tax. Is the state of Washington. This state is the only one of democratic controlled states that also voted down to a stunning defeat a state income tax. leaving it as the only blue states with out at income tax. When some liberals tried to place a state income-tax on its people. The people voted it down 70% against, 30% for. Even in Clark county of Washington state. The county next to the city of Portland Oregon. This county is having a boom. Oregon has a higher tax rate then Washington. No surprise that businesses and people are moving into Clark county Washington.
Businesses do move to pay less taxes! So if government taxes the rich too much! They will just move their investments over seas, or from state to state, or just move out of the country. Foreign investment will dry up and go else where. Leaving the policy of tax and spend with less and a diminished growth rate for the future.
These are the facts of failed policy’s. You can not tax and spend your way to prosperity. Even the distortions of presenting the government spending factor, like the one Nancy Pelosi presented. As proof that when government spends a dollar, it creates a 1.50 in economic activities. If this would be the case. Then the country Greece would be the richest country in the world!
Explaining away your failures with explanations of.. ” Well! It would have been worse… Or. We are in this mess because of president Bush and those spending habits he and the republican had.” Or some such. Doesn’t erase the foundational facts of ” You can not prove a counter factual! ”
Where’s the proof?
How can you prove something that hasn’t happened, but just remains a theory of the delusional mind, hell-bent on manipulating the truth for the sake of extending their power for another 4 years?
This is why we may have the possibility for a landslide brewing just under the surface of the political landscape. Isn’t all of this true today?
3 and 1/2 years ago Mr. Obama asked us to trust him to change the status quo of government. Then went on to say he was going to have the most transparent government of ” Hope and change.” Only to then insult us all by scold us by saying. ” You didn’t build that! ” Just how far he has divided us, is still unknown to a great extent. This November Is not much different then the november of 1980 when Ronald Reagan faced the same problems, as well as the problems produced by a president of failed policy’s. Just as it is today some 32 years later.
Here is some of the speech that Ronald Reagan gave… as well as some ad lib added in, so as if Reagan would be giving the RNC speech in 2012.
Balanced by the knowledge that a government is never more dangerous than when our desire to have it help us, blinds us to its power to harm us.
The major issue of this campaign is the direct political, personal and moral responsibility of Democratic Party leadership –in the White House and in Congress — for this unprecedented calamity which has befallen us.
My fellow citizens, I utterly reject that view. The American people, the most generous on earth, who created the highest standard of living, are not going to accept the notion that we can only make a better world for others by moving backwards ourselves. Those who believe this can have no business leading the nation.
I will not stand by and watch this great country destroy itself under mediocre leadership that drifts from one crisis to the next, eroding our national will and purpose. We have come together here because the American people deserve better from those to whom they entrust our nation’s highest offices, and we stand united in our resolve to do something about it.
This is the issue of this election. Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.
First, we must overcome something the present administration has cooked up: a new and altogether indigestible economic stew, one part high unemployment, one part recession, one part runaway taxes, one party deficit spending and seasoned by an energy crisis — and most devastatingly, one part health care. It’s an economic stew that has turned the national stomach.
Ours are not problems of abstract economic theory. Those are problems of flesh and blood; problems that cause pain and destroy the moral fiber of real people who should not suffer the further indignity of being told by the government that it is all somehow their fault. We do not have unemployment because — as Mr. Obama says — we have lived too well at the expense of others.
I will not accept the excuse that the federal government has grown so big and powerful that it is beyond the control of any president, any administration or Congress. We are going to put an end to the notion that the American taxpayer exists to fund the federal government. The federal government exists to serve the American people. On January 20th, we are going to re-establish that truth.
The American people have been subjected to the biggest tax increase in our nation’s history — and it will grow even heavier, under present law, next January. We are taxing ourselves into economic exhaustion and stagnation, crushing our ability and incentive to save, invest and produce.
This must stop. We must halt this fiscal self-destruction and restore sanity to our economic system.
When I talk of tax cuts, I am reminded that every major tax cut in this century has strengthened the economy, generated renewed productivity and ended up yielding new revenues for the government by creating new investment, new jobs and more commerce among our people. Reagan’s 2012 Acceptance Speech http://spectator.org/archives/2012/07/17/reagans-2012-acceptance-speech ( Thanks to this post for the info on the 1980 RNC speech of Ronald Reagan’s on 7/17/1980. slightly modified but mostly quoted. )
If this sounds familiar to you. You may be just seeing the possibility’s of a landslide for the GOP and Mitt Romney this november. By witnessing the frustrations of the people that you talk to everyday. By building your family’s, businesses, and your success. While living your lives with nothing more than wish to be able to then passing it onto your kids and their kids. Holding the attitudes, that hard work is something that deserves the unlimited merits of unlimited rewards within a meritocracy.
If your insulted that Obama only thinks the way to go is, a bigger government, a type of government that can only take from you and then take some more. As being the answer you deserve, for the problems of the day. A government you don’t want. A government that can’t even manage the social services with out driving it to a point of insolvency.
Then gives us all, out landish statements like… ” You didn’t build this!!” doesn’t deserves your vote? Take part of the 2012 political landslide, and vote failure out of office.
To watch the full speech Reagan delivered click on the link below and enjoy. See if you can find the same or similar problems he talks about in this speech with the ones this election season of today, and the problems we have today as well. I guess the liberal left doesn’t change or move forward. It just repeats itself. It is still the same. Just the same-old past… nothing new here! Move along ! LOL http://youtu.be/RmmgVFByeaI Cheers! For the coming landslide????
