…to those who voted third party that I called morons. I’m the moron.

I typed those two posts last night in frustration and anger at the fact that America is too stupid to see that a failed President should never be given a second term. We’ve just given him the green light to push this country even further to the left and increase the percentage of Americans on the government dole.

In my anger I lashed out at the Libertarians, I actually tend to lean in that direction.
And for that I apologize.

I just don’t think that voting for a Libertarian candidate for President was the right thing to do, especially for this election. In my estimation, that was what put Obama over the top in key states.

I think the right way to get libertarian principles into the American electorate is to vote for libertarians for Congress.There needs to be more of them there, where they can have an impact on the way America is governed. Ron Paul and Rand Paul have continued to push for the libertarian principles from within, where they have a greater impact on the direction America is going. They bring attention to many issues that need to be addressed and it puts their ideals on the table for everyone to see. That’s how the libertarian cause can be better served in my mind.

Again, to any of my readers that I pissed on last night, I apologize.

This comes from Rep. Allen West:

During the question and answer portion of President Obama’s NATO summit press conference today he made an interesting statement. He alluded to the fact that the Presidential election will be about who will ensure success for Americans from top to bottom, that everyone has a fair shot. It is clear that Obama is redefining the words of Thomas Jefferson who articulated that our unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness come from our Creator, not man, nor government. Benjamin Franklin stated that it is the pursuit of happiness and it is incumbent upon the American individual to make that chase and catch it. America is about individual sovereignty to pursue their happiness. It is not about government driven collective subjugation in an attempt to guarantee happiness. Sorry President Obama, we will not allow you to redefine America, nor the American Dream!

Time to get out there and do your duty. Yes, duty.

“Duty then is the sublimest word in the English language. You should do your duty in all things. You can never do more, you should never wish to do less.” – Robert E. Lee

Make the left know you’re on to them and you aren’t going to sit idly by and take their bullshit anymore. We are still the majority, we just have to get out there and prove it. Vote. Even if you don’t like the SOB the GOP puts out there, he is way better than the current occupier in the White House, a.k.a. SCOAMF.

The Tea Party Call to Duty

By Sally Zelikovsky

At the time of America’s founding, the notion of civic duty was commonplace. Our entire system was predicated on the idea that citizens would take an active role in the governance of their towns, states, and country. Little was asked of Americans other than self-governance, jury duty, fighting wars when necessary, protecting the homeland, and living by the rule of law. In time, Americans were additionally “asked” to forfeit a portion of the fruits of their labor to foot the bills the government would incur.

Over the years, we have handed off most of our self-governing and civic duties to others. As the Founders anticipated, we elect town council members and state and federal legislators to “represent” us. But all too often, we leave the voting booth, brush our hands together, and go back to our normal lives thinking we are done…until the next election. In the meantime, we relinquish considerable power and control over our lives to the very people who are supposed to be working for us.

We have so completely shirked our personal and civic responsibilities that we have inadvertently created a class of professional politicians. With the economic and personal stakes being so high for these professional politicians, the legislation they enact is often compromised, and their re-election campaigns are motivated more by what’s good for the incumbent than by what’s good for the People.

This is  from Andrew Napolitano. I can’t get the video to work, so, here’s the link to it on YouTube:

It’s pretty good, in my opinion.

What if…

Stole this from Hot Air:

GQ: Your new movie is called Friends with Benefits. Ever been in one of those relationships?

Mila Kunis: Oy. I haven’t, but I can give you my stance on it: It’s like communism—good in theory, in execution it fails.

Friends of mine have done it, and it never ends well. Why do people put themselves through that torture?
