From Did President Obama Just Deliver a Political Memorial Day Speech?, Well Said by Wordsmith

From Delusional Obama links climate change and terrorism, Well Said by Daniel John Sobieski

Are "Obama" and "Delusional" redundant?

From Dear GOP: Don't Work with Obama - Stop Him, Well Said by Michael Walsh

Ha ha ha ha ha! Suckers! The Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party doesn't care. And certainly not the wing led by the twin dullards, McConnell and Boehner, men of limited intelligence and zero imagination.

GOP hacks like the loathsome Mitch McConnell and Weepy John Boehner seem to think the GOP needs to show it can "govern" - which they mean push various pieces of crappy legislation through their respective chambers - before voters will trust them with the keys to the White House. Meanwhile, the public keep screaming: STOP OBAMA!

Libertarian Credo

The following credo was supplied by Doug Thornburg

Doug's credo # 2: My needs and desires, however great or intense, do not give me the right to take what is yours, including your life and the derivatives of your life--your ideas and tangible property. To suggest otherwise creates a relationship not dissimilar to that of master and slave.

More of Doug's credos, and some very interesting reading as well, can be found here.


Why I'm Conservative, or perhaps a Libetarian

People often ask me why I'm conservative, why I reject ANYTHING proposed by liberals or progressives (or whatever they call themselves today).

I always answer with two statements and a question:

Statements

  1. I resent and resist ANY proposal that forces me to pay for it. Liberals and progressives propose policies that require tax money. I am forced by the IRS to pay taxes or go to jail. ObamaCare (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or PPACA) comes to mind. That fiasco became law in March 2010. As Nancy Pelosi famously said, "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what's in it."

    It has never worked, is much more expensive than advertised to most Americans, and now wants more money to remain viable.

    Some liberal proposals are admirable. Whether or not I want to fund it should be MY choice, not something that is forced upon me.

  2. Has ANY proposal offered by liberals ever worked as advertised? The "War On Poverty" illustrates my point. LBJ said that 30 years was needed to eradicate poverty. Yet after 50 years and $40 trillion spent, the "poverty" level is substantially the same as it was in the 1960s. In fact, poverty has actually increased for some Americans.

    Besides not reducing poverty, it robbed taxpayers of money they could have spent themselves. And it grew a huge (and hugely expensive) bureauracy. Means-tested welfare spending has soared since the start of the War on Poverty. In fiscal year 2013 alone, the federal government ran over 80 means-tested welfare programs that provided cash, food, housing, medical care, and targeted social services to poor and low-income Americans. Federal and state governments spent $943 billion in 2013 on these programs at an average cost of $9,000 per recipient. Social Security and Medicare are not included in the totals.

    And I use the term "poverty" advisedly because:

Question

Is the assumption of power worth the assault on human nature? As an example, I point to the liberal proposed welfare program and what it has done to the black family, children, and work ethic.

And, unlike most liberals, I don't rely on loudly expressing my opinion. I proved links to references that support WHY I'm a conservative.
