Top 5 Reasons Obama will fail as President

We're jumping the gun a bit here at RWR, but thought it would be fun to pontificate an Obama presidency. Or lack thereof. With that, we present the Top Five Reasons the Obama Presidency will Fail:

5) He refused Barney Frank's persistent requests for a date.

4) He admitted to a typo in his tax plan that shows he's really raising taxes on everyone making a combined household income of 250,000 yen.

3) He commissioned statues of himself to be built in all 57 states he visited during the Campaign.

2) He failed to wrestle unilateral control of the Republic away from Chancellor Palpatine thanks to that idiot Skywalker.

1) He'll tearfully admit his long-time associations with Rev. Billy Graham, who convinced a single mother-to-be to not abort her baby when Obama was only eight years old.

Open Letter to Sarah Palin

Governor Palin,

You said recently that should His All-mitey Barack Obama fall over the finish line in first place on Tuesday, you're not going to just disappear into bolivian, as Mike Tyson would say. No, you're going to stay and fight.

Well, good for you, Guv'na. My question is, whom are you going to fight? The socialist, peacenik tree huggers on the left whose full possession of two of the three branches gives them the power to treat America as their experimental social playground? The aisle-crossing, wide-stanced, bend-over-backwards-and-forwards appeasing moderates who run the GOP? How about MSCNNBC, the Obama official news agency? Or the Chris Buckley/Peggy Noonan punditocrats who loved McCain until he picked you? All of the above?

Governor Palin, you're surrounded. But not alone. Those of us who admire you for your policies and determination number in the millions. We, the disillusioned conservative base of the Party of Lincoln stand with you. The trouble is we are realizing that we're standing in a big stinky political cowpie called the Republican Party, and we'd like to hose it off our shoes and start over. But we need a leader. Care to join us?

PS - Bring Mike Pence with you.

Time for a new Political Party?

The GOP leadership's increasing antagonism towards pro-lifers, Christians, and anyone else who believes in an actual limited government have me wondering out loud if it's time to start a new political party. Off the top of my head, I imagine there must be some basic party platforms which cannot be compromised:

1) Pro-life. The party must be unashamedly and uncompromisingly pro-life. A Constitutional amendment must be added to define life as starting at conception. In the interim, a vote to expand abortion rights in any way is grounds for permanent dismissal from the party.

2) Limited government. While even the Founders argued over the limits of a limited government, there was little disagreement that the government must not spend more than it makes. While you can't predict the future, and thus government still might spend over-budget during an unexpected crisis, the spending plan cannot have a deficit built into the budget as is the case year after year. Voting for an annual budget that has a built-in deficit is grounds for dismissal from the party.

2a) Eventual elimination of spending any federal dollars on giveaways, handouts, welfare, or any other social programs. That is the responsibility of the church, and the local government if desired, who best know how to spend the money to help the truly helpless, and are best qualified to identify and prevent fraud.

2b) Privatization of health care. Currently, 40% of all health care dollars are spent by the federal government. That's right, the United States already has a 40% socialist health care system, by measurement of dollars spent. The federal government should get out of the health care business, and thus should privatize Medicare and Medicaid. Health care, like everything else in economics, is made more affordable by having an increased supply vs. demand. Government involvement by way of price controls and excessive regulation reduces supply. Health care is not a right, and, while there are many regulatory changes that are necessary to lower health care costs, the most important step is to remove the government from the equation. Other necessary changes include insurance reform and tort reform.

2c) Privatization of Social Security. This is so obvious, there's no need for explanation.

2d) Legislation, and eventually a Constitutional amendment, banning income and property taxes. Property taxes are immoral in that you are essentially renting your property from the government, and in reality have no real property rights. (Think I'm wrong? Refuse to pay them, and you'll be thrown off your own property.) The federal government will replace these taxes with a federal sales tax. Certain foods are tax exempt. The rich will pay more taxes than the poor, based on the fact that they buy more things. But everyone gets to decide how much taxes they want to pay by controlling their own spending.

3) Strong military. One of the Constitution's few specified requirements of the federal government is for national security. A strong military, with a strong civilian support system, is an uncompromising requirement.

4) Constitutionalist judiciary. There will be a litmus test for judges, and the test is very simple. You are either a judge (meaning, you interpret the laws based solely on the Constitution) or you are not (meaning, you deviate in any manner from the Constitution). If you are not a judge by this definition, you fail the litmus test.

5) Term Limits. A party member cannot serve more than 3 consecutive terms in the House of Representatives, and cannot serve more than 1 consecutive term in the Senate. Six consecutive years of service is enough. After that, you need to get back into the real world so you do not become immune to it. Joe Biden, John McCain, and Ted Kennedy are all the proof we need that "experience" in Congress is spelled c-o-r-r-u-p-t.

6) Constitutional marriage amendment. First legislation, then Constitutional amendment, defining marriage as being between one man and one woman. Marriage, by its very existence, is the foundation and preservation of society, the generator of generations, and is as immutable as 2+2=4. While the government cannot condone sodomy or elevate it to be equated with monogamous heterosexual intercourse within the confines of marriage, there should be no law that prevents two friends from hospital visitation, joint insurance policies, or any other legal contract in which two friends may participate. But government cannot provide special protections to persons identified exclusively by the fact that they sodomize another human being.

7) School vouchers. The corrupt public education system can be dramatically improved if it must compete for students. The middle class and poor should be able to afford the same school choices as the rich. School vouchers for private and parochial schools can subsidize the cost of education, and will create an environment where schools will have to compete for students (and thus their money).

First draft complete.

With that list, I'm sure you're wondering how you could possibly create a party big enough to win seats in Congress and actually be a force for change. If your thinking follows along those lines, then I encourage you to consider the principles listed above without regard to actual winning and losing. Either the principles above are worth fighting for, or they are not. If you believe they are not worth the cost, then I suggest you stay with your corrupt political party. As the great congressman and statesman Mike Pence said during the bailout debacle, "Duty is ours, outcomes belong to God." We are a force for change, whether or not we win congressional seats. We are a force for change, because, as the late great William F. Buckley said, we stand athwart history yelling stop! But we are not a force for change if we stay marginalized by a party that feigns passing interest in our core values.

The fight we must fight is for truth, justice, and liberty for all American citizens, regardless of creed, color, or religion. God will decide how many congressional seats we win.

Update: The American Independent Party (http://www.aipca.org/), and America's Independent Party (http://www.selfgovernment.us/), which are perplexingly not the same organization, but are now affiliated with each other, and somehow have nominated the same candidate to represent them for President (Alan Keyes), might be my new political home. Time to check them out!

The joys of a Democrat-controlled government

This article (http://www.workforce.com/section/00/article/25/83/58.php) describes one of the joyous tax changes that liberals in the House hope to implement when America finally gets its act together and votes Democrat across the board on election day.

I'll summarize for those of you who won't click on the link:
1) No more voluntary, tax-deferred, 401k accounts backed by the stock market
2) Instead, you MUST put 5% of your money into a Social Security-controlled savings account
3) Which will earn 3%, inflation-adjusted, rain or shine. That's less than half of what you'll earn with the stock market.

I can see the new Democrat bumper stickers now - Democrats: Spreading mediocrity equally!

But no worries - I'm sure President Obama would veto any attempts to restrict your freedom to do what you want with your money.

So when did Barack Obama consider running for President?

This link from ESPN's website (http://sports.espn.go.com/broadband/video/videopage?videoId=3665113&categoryId=3286128) has both Barack and Michelle Obama retelling a November 2006 story of him trying to talk Michelle into letting him run for President...just days after being elected to the Senate.

So let me get this straight: the Democrat nominee for President considered himself qualified for the most powerful job in the world with exactly zero days of legislative or executive experience. Compared to Obama, Sarah Palin is Ronald Reagan.

Obama and "spread the wealth"

If Obama is elected, his socialism will soon be on display. This will come as a shock only to those who voted for him.

Re: Obama Tax Cuts

If 44% of americans don't make enough to pay taxes, how can they get a tax cut? If you don't pay taxes, how can you lower what you pay? Nice job by the Obama campaign to issue welfare checks via the IRS...

I heard a great analogy for this on the radio:

Suppose you are in school. You get 100% on your test. Unfortunately, litte Johnny did not do well enough to pass. No worries, the teacher will take 20% from you and give it to Johnny so he can pass too.

Okay...so...where is your motivation to try harder? If you don't try, you will still pass. If you do try, some of what you earned will be taken away...Socialism at its finest.

Socialism scared people out of Cuba...and that was before it turned into Communism.

Sarah Palin is at it again

The Vice Presidential candidate recently attacked Barack Obama by guaranteeing that our enemies will create an "international crisis" within the first six months of his administration, designed to test the president's mettle. The assault continued with the implication that Obama will not respond to the crisis, likely angering his supporters.

If there was anything that proves she is unfit for the job, this statement would seal the deal.

What? Joe Biden said this? Not Sarah Palin? Uh, never mind.

Tough Times Call for Socialism

Treasury Secretary Paulson said this on October 14, 2008:

"Government owning a stake in any private U.S. company is objectionable to most Americans, me included. Yet, the alternative of leaving businesses and consumers without access to financing is totally unacceptable."

Mr. Secretary's statement reeks of 3rd grade logic, for if socialism is the solution when times are really difficult, it ought to create heaven-on-earth during the good times.

The race is closer than we think

Obama up 13 nationally in one poll, up 12 in another, up 9 on Fox, but tied on AP/Yahoo. Ann Coulter wrote recently that when the polls are wrong, they favor the Democrat, sometimes greatly. The way Obama is spending money, the race is obviously tighter than it appears on the surface. I suspect that we won't know who our next president is on election evening. Someone will demand a recount in at least 2 states.
