GOP Leader Blasts Obama, Says Republicans "Screwed Up"

January 8, 2010 by  

Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele made a splash in the news this week, accusing the Obama administration on Tuesday of following an inconsistent policy toward terrorism, just a day after the release of his new book where he denounced the president’s overall policies while heavily criticizing recent members of the GOP for losing touch with America.

In Right Now: A 12 Step Program for Defeating the Obama Agenda Steele says that the Republican party needs to recognize that they "most glaringly compromised [their] principles” after the Reagan administration and that it is time to hold elected officials accountable.

"We must support Republican officials who assert these principles," he writes. "When elected Republicans vote against Republican principles, the voters must withhold their support—withhold it vigorously and consistently."

Steele went on to criticize several of Obama’s policies, including the stimulus bill, which he referred to as "a reckless, wasteful, pork-laden spending spree."

Meanwhile, on Tuesday Steele told NBC’s Today Show that the current administration continues to avoid acknowledging a war on terror, and that it is making a mistake by putting terrorism suspects on trial in civilian courts, stating, "the public doesn’t view them as having rights in the criminal system," according to The New York Times.

    • c lee

      I agree 100% with immpeaching obamma. But I do think he knows exactly what he is doing, its part of his plan to gain total control over the american people. If you think the govt. is in your life now you just wait. And it is going to happen so quickly you will be shocked. If we dont stop all this talk and show these crimminals we are not going to stand by and let this happen we are going to loose. There was a movie a few years back staring Patric Swazy called Red Dawn does anyone of you remember that movie. The only difference between that movie and what is going to happen to us is it wont be a forgin govt. it will be our own. If any of you think what I just said cant and wont happen then that in itself is why It can happen in the first place because your nieave. There needs to be action but so far there is none that I can see.

        I’m with you 100% Obama knows exactly what he is doing, he is not a rockie like most like to think or say, He and the rest of that lying administration will burn this country down if we don’t stop them NOW, Time is getting short.

      • Dennis

        Hello again c lee,
        It’s going to happen the minute he signs the healthcare bill, that will be the beginning of the end of our freedom as we know it.

    • Michael

      Clearly you are suffering from Obama Derangement Syndrome. I don’t agree with him on most things but he has done nothing impeachable.

      • George

        We probably won’t agree on anything else, but I do agree with you on this point. I don’t think he’s done anything that calls for impeachment, unless he’s falsified his eligibility to be President. It would be nice to get that issue resolved soon, and once and for all.

      • DaveH

        He is purposely pushing Congress to exercise powers that aren’t granted by the Constitution, and he’s a lawyer so he sure can’t plead ignorance on that issue. All politicians swear to uphold the Constitution. They are knowingly breaking that oath. That alone is grounds for impeachment but it isn’t going to happen with Democrats controlling the Congress.

        • eyeswideopen

          Dave, can you be more specific in what illegal things Obama is pushing Congress to enact?

          • DaveH

            Forcing people to buy Healthcare Insurance, taking over the Healthcare Industry, taking over the energy sector (Cap and Trade). The Federal Government under the Democrats is trampling their Constitutional powers.
            By the way, Eyes, read the Constitution. It’s less than 1% of the size of the Health Care Bill. Then keep in mind all the conflicting opinions that result from that short Document. Imagine what a field day for Lawyers the Health Care Bill will be. If you want Chaos, the Health Care Bill will please you.

    We should rather press the eligibility issue and leave it to a court to find he was never qualified to hold the office he sits in. This would invalidate ALL his presidential proclamations and the legislation passed since his inaugaration. (the Constitution requires all legislation be signed by the (legal) president, thus any signed by an ILLEGAL president would be de facto invalid) Every one of Obama’s “enablers” (those who did NOT strictly follow the law and assisted Obama’s effort to be elected) should be impeached and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. (treason and/or sedition) Thus we wouldn’t have a Dem-dominated Congress either.
    Yes, resolving the mess this would leave would be a great challenge, but “doable”! This would put us back on the path of being truely a constitutional republic again.

    • ordinarycitizen

      I’m with you both on impeach and find him ineligible. Canadian Free Press is claiming that representatives from across the media have been threatened by this administration if they do anything on the eligibility story. A number of these individuals have contacted the Canadian Free Press to protect themselves and their families since this is outside of Obama’s jurisdiction. This is probably bigger than Watergate, but we have more than half the media in the bag and the remainder worried about the safety of their families. These people are evil. Do some research on the Canadian Free Press. They are legitimately pursuing the story of his eligibility because our corrupt government won’t. Our constitution doesn’t layout the path to redress this type of issue. Our founding fathers never foresaw the level of dishonesty that currently exists. The thought is that the parties would vet their own. Don’t think the Democrats did that, so now we stand with a questionable president who can’t get any of it right from the perspective of governing the people – of the people, for the people, by the people. Making us over in his view is not Constitutional….

      • c lee

        Thank God we still have Glenn Beck,Bill Oriley, Shawn Hannity, Rush Limbaugh Etc. Etc. telling us what is happening.

        • Michael

          Stop drinking the Koolaid. You are a slave to those people you listed. They are lying to you while making money. Rush makes 400 million, he is not blue collar. He does not care about you, he cares about money.

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Michael,

            I’m wondering a little about the Kool-Ade you may be partaking in without even realizing it. Sometimes the truth hurts, and both parties (Dems and Repubs) have contributed to the hurt at various times.

            I think it’s the delivery of Beck’s, Hannity’s, and Limbaugh’s messagae you don’t like. I watch Beck, Hannity and O’Reilley more frequently than the puppets on the MSM stations. I occasionally listen to Limbaugh on my drive to work and while I do think he is very hard hitting and sometimes theatrical in his presentation…I feel he usually ends up being spot on.

            When it’s all said and done…I listen, research what I can and make my own informed decision. An informed decision is less likely when getting your source of info from the MSM since they rarely offer a balanced commentary…only their liberal interpetation. At least FNC offers both and the viewers can make up their own mind.

            Fed Up Gal

          • George

            Michael,

            What “lies” did you hear Rush proclaim?

            The fact that Rush makes money offering his opinion on talk radio and selling political opinion books, says little about whether is opinions are correct or not, I believe. Would you say the same about others who do this, including liberal politicians, like Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, etc?

            Rush probably doesn’t care about us. He doesn’t know us, at least not on a personal basis, nor do we know him. That doesn’t matter anyway. What does matter is whether he offers anything of value that helps us understand or evaluate our politicians or political system. Some of us believe he does add value in that regard.

          • http://google Patricia Schaefer

            I dont agree that Rush doesnt care. He makes a lot of money because he is smart and well accepted by the american public. a lot of people listen to him. He serves a very good purpose by alerting all working people who dont have time to follow the every more of congress, on whats actually going on. Youd all better listen

          • DaveH

            So Michael,
            You don’t care about money? Great! Then you can help us stop those greedy Liberals from taking ours.

          • Jana

            Michael,
            Yes, unlike your hero, Al Gore who has made millions on his global warming farce, using his scare tactics. Oh yes, we should all be more like you and be confused and listen to and believe in lies.

      • George

        I do wish we could get this eligibility issue behind us once and for all. I’m afraid this won’t get resolved until after Obama’s term is over, or worse yet, ever. That’s just another stain on our political system, in my opinion.

        • DaveH

          Whether he’s eligible or not is a minor issue. He’s trying his level best to destroy what made this country great. That’s the real problem.

          And, to the Liberals that will jump on me, I’m not saying he is the only one. It’s been going on since Franklin Roosevelt. We need to get this country back on the right track – Limited Government and Free Markets.

          • George

            Amen to that…….

  • Alan Clark

    It appears that the Love for money has, indeed, become the root of all evil. Not all, but a very large percentage of our elected officials have fallen pray to this glamorous life style while turning a deaf ear to the American People as well as the Constitution of The United States of America itself. What is wrong with this country when the people have lost control of their government? Where are the Real leaders when we need them the most? I know that the corruption in Washington is far and above what We the People can even imagine and yet it continues, somehow unchecked, with seemingly nobody at the helm. Is it because those who would try to interfere would somehow dissapear or be found dead due to an appearant suicide? Fear is a powerful weapon against the meek as our terrorists have shown over and over. Does our own government subscribe to those same tactics to maintain there positions in office?

    It’s been said many times before but I still think that it’s time for the voters to realize that our vote is still a very powerful weapon against this corrupt government. If all, and I do mean all incumbant polititions were to be voted ‘OUT’ and replaced with people who are NOT bought and payed for maybe we could start to see a better America. We have term limits for the president, why not congress and the senate as well. NO special privlages for them. Make these people abide by the same rules and laws they provide the American citizen with. Change would then be visible. Level the playing field, get back to basics and stop playing the elite. These folks work for us, not the other way around. Try doing to your employer what this congress and senate has done to us and I guarantee you’ll be looking for a job tomorrow.

    Get your butts out and vote, and if they’ve been there over four years, then vote their ass’s out and put some fresh meat in the locker room. They get four years to get it right, no more. Then whom ever decides they would like to take a crack at it would do well to head what those before them have accomplished. Let the people decide!

    • http://n/a Winnie

      Alan, you’ve hit the bull’s eye on this. Quit complaining and get your people lined up for next voting time. New blood will do wonders for the United States of America. Go out and vote and whoever wins should also have the full support of the people.

      • Fed Up Gal in NM

        Winnie (and a foot note to Michael),

        I tend to agree; vote ‘em all out and start fresh. I don’t agree however, that whoever wins should have full support of the people.

        I believe part of the intent of a 2-party system is to provide sort of a built-in checks and balances. I also believe open, but civil dissent is what helps keep us “free”.

        I personally will not give my full support to a President or Congress person or Senator that I feel relies less and less on the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights or who even attempts to further remove God from schools, government buildings, U.S. currency (such as it is)…and I will dissent if and when he/she tries!

        No, I haven’t become a member of a local tea party yet….but given the current climate…it’s only a matter of time. Michael…you don’t have to wait…go ahead and report this comment to anyone you like.

        Fed Up Gal

        • DaveH

          The two Parties have failed us. We need to look elsewhere for the solution.

        • http://n/a Winnie

          Fed Up Gal in NM. Yes you’re right. There needs to be checks and balances. Both of your two parties are not working for the people of America. Get rid of the lobbists, at least some of them, and your country will do just fine. The idiot politians forget who are paying their wages.

        • eyeswideopen

          Fed up, do you not understand that God, wasn’t supposed to be in schools in the first place? Obviously you don’t respect or want the Constitution to be followed or you wouldn’t be pushing religion in the educational system. I recommend that you read more of our founding fathers writtings and acknowledge that they were right in trying to keep religion out of the government, and education. Using your ideaology, the ruling party could decide what religion would be acceptable and enforce participation. I share Christianity, but I understand why our Constitution doesn’t endorse any religion, or allow any specific one to be forced upon any citizen.

          • Me in Baltimore MD

            EYES

            I understand what you are saying and I believe you are right in my opinion. First of all parents should be teaching their children Christian values and not leave it up to the schools. I taught my children and they are the better for it . The schools were ignorant to the Biblical principles and I would not want them to do my job any way, they would do it wrong because they were and are ignorant about the Bible. That really is the church’s job AND PARENTS also. But I noticed that when i was growing up in school when we prayed and said the pledge to the Flag it instilled in us patriotism and respect for the higher creator which they don’t teach in schools and i think its played an effect on the monsters in schools today, who have no respect for teachers and rules or adults. So maybe we should allowed prayer in schools at least, the brats would not be so bad like they are now.

          • jim

            Eyes, Anyone who thinks there isn’t prayer in school, hasn’t been there during finals week.

    • Dennis

      They sure ignore and don’t want to hear us complain or disagree with them but they sure know us if we don’t pay our taxes.

    • Dennis

      Speaking of votes, they are trying to pass and have passed to give rights to prisoners to vote. I thought that was part of your punishment was to lose your right to vote. This is exactly the problem with society and government, no one is held accountable and punishment is diminished.

      • Jana

        Dennis’
        Prisoners seem to be getting more and more rights all of the time, and I agree with you. I thought that voting was something that should be a privelege, but there are too many gimme people in prison for the Democrats to leave them out as voters. However, they do choose to ignore the votes of our service men and women. I have heard that approximately 40% of their votes are never counted. (These are the ones serving on foreign soil)
        We are quickly losing our values in this country and finally we are getting mad about it and hopefully will do something about it.

        • DaveH

          Prisoners are a natural for the Party of Thieves.

    • George

      I agree that money is the root cause of this corruption. Here’s a transcript that I just read that outlines in some detail what’s really going on, and what might be done to fix this problem. http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/01082010/transcript1.html?iframe#pt2. It’s pretty long, but I think it’ll be worth your time to read. You may be surprised at some of the info and conclusions.

      • DaveH

        There’s an answer to this problem. It’s Free Markets. The banks or institutions who don’t serve their customers fall prey to those that do.
        Instead of certain people advocating Big Government as the solution (Liberals) to those dastardly banks and financial institutions, they could pool their money and start their own honest (joking) and beneficial institutions that don’t want to make money. In other words, put their money where their mouths are. It’s so easy to mind the business of others when they have no skin in the game.
        Indeed, the Government should protect us from fraud, but they are too busy minding everyone else’s business to do that very basic function.
        As Government has become more involved in the market over the years there has been more fraud, not less.

  • Robert

    This guy Steele is like a Monday morning quaterback. He’s right about the GOP ignoring their fundamental principles, but what do you expect from career politicians? It’s like a feeding frency in DC and we the voters are the only ones that can bring about real change. Let’s send a message to Washington this November and vote out all those incumbents who have been ingnoring us and legislate only for themselves and their cronies. Imagine what would happen if this happened. We might actually be represented and fought for. Think about it.

    • Joe H.

      Robert,
      yeah he was right, but what did he do to change the problem? Hell, he didn’t even do anything to ensure that we has a conservative run!!

      • DaveH

        You’re too kind Joe.
        Liberals are pushy, controlling thieves.

        • DaveH

          That was meant to go below your next comment.

  • Jon Kass

    To be a republican these days is to be either a racist, a greedy bastard, an ignoramus, or some combination of the afore mentioned

    • Joe H.

      Jon Kass,
      Yeah Wright, and to be a liberal is to put your hands over your ears and wear blinders!!!!!

    • George

      And, being a Democrat means being a socialist or unrealistic dreamer who wants, or is willing for, the government to control everything, including us, and willing to break the bank (ours) to get it.

      I’m not sure these kinds of generalities are all that helpful in determining which candidates to vote for because there are sometimes shades of gray across the spectrum. However, when there’s a strong party or political interest groups with lots of money behind these candidates, they might be swayed to vote for things they might not otherwise vote for. I give you the current health care reform bill as an example of that. Democratic Senators are all voting for it, even though many of them know that by doing so it will cost them their jobs…. What’s going on with that?

      • Dennis

        They have sold their soul to the devil. They want to make history, they have only been trying to get healthcare for 100 years. Ya know what, NOT PASSING THIS HORRIBLE BILL WILL MAKE HISTORY, TOO!!!

        • George

          That’s the kind of history I’d like to see right now. I’m pretty sure the Dems will wish they had listened to the American people by election time next November.

          • Jana

            George I certainly hope so. They bank on the voters having short term memories. My memory sure isn’t short term, but I talk to so many who tell me, “Why I never heard of that.” That answer goes with a lot of different things such as the many different things Obama has done to put our country down, to the Communist and Marxist as well as Socialist that Obama has put in as his Czars.
            A lot of people don’t know, and are blind. Of course these are the Democrats that would vote for a monkey if he ran for office. hmmm.

          • George

            Jana,

            I understand. However, keep in mind it’s people like that that have to be energized some how to get off their duff to go vote. My reading of the political environment is that the left has gotten a little complacent since winning big in the last election, and many of their voters are not paying attention and are not energized. Also, many on the left aren’t real happy with Obama because they think he’s moved to the center on many of the issues that they want him to govern from the left on. In the meantime, he’s lost almost all of the moderate and conservative voters who helped get him elected. The right, on the other hand, sees Obama and the Democrat Congress as the most far-left group we’ve ever had and are very, very concerned about their policies. In addition, the majority of American people don’t like the health care reform bill, the cap & trade act, or the immigration reform act that the Democrats are pushing in the pipeline now. On top of all that, the economy is still in the tank and it’s highly unlikely the jobs picture is going to improve enough by next November to inspire a lot of confidence in the Democrats ability to improve things. So, as I see it, you’ll see a flood of energized conservatives and moderates go to the polls, and only a trickle of liberal voters next November. Obama’s administration is looking a lot like Clinton’s first term to me. Both have let health care legislation stop their political initiatives dead in the water after the first year. Clinton was smart and politically savvy enough to triangulate with the Republicans during his last two years of his first term to get some popular conservative legislation passed (NAFTA, welfare reform), which helped him get re-elected for a second 4 year term. However, this didn’t make him very popular with the Democrats at that time. He only regained his popularity with them when the Republicans impeached Clinton and started beating up on him after his Monica escapade. At this point, I really don’t think Obama will be as politically savvy as Clinton, and change directions to save his administration. I think he’ll let these unpopular legislation take him down in his first term. I don’t think he’ll win a second term. This will open an opportunity for the Republicans once again. I surely hope they don’t blow it this time. Conservatives are losing patience with the Republicans.

        • Me in Baltimore MD

          I am a Conservative Black Voter, 58, who did not vote for The BUM as president and got blasted for being an Uncle TOM by some of my friends but I told my friends i love Uncle Sam and they were the Uncle Tom’s to Obuma. I love my constitution and Bill of rights but Obuma is trying to destroy them or ignoring them along with Polocy, Reed, Dode and other Demonuts so all I have to say to all the libs is to impeach O”bum”a and themselves, while they are at it. They are a disgrace to the principles of freedom and economic sanity. What planet were they born on and what country are they from? What history have they studied? Uranus and Russian is my answer and I hope they learn what America is all about and stop trying to change what the rest of the world envies and hates. We have freedom and the rest of them are slaves. Who wants to be slaves like the majority of the world? My ancestors have been their and I’m not trying to go back there and I remember what the Black slave sellers did to my ancestors, Little did they know they did us a favor. To me Obama is trying to make slaves out of all Americans down to the 3rd generation. What the H*** is wrong with him? We needs to stop spending before China owns us lock, stock and lives sold into slavery to pay off the debt we will owe them and already owe. IMPEACH OBAMA? I’ve been saying that since Feburary 2009. Ask the Les Consulving radio show where I said it. Thanks to those who agre with me.

          • George

            What did he say that leads you to believe he’s not African-American? There are some conservative African-Americans in this country. I think many share conservative values more than they share the Republican brand….

          • DaveH

            George,
            More than 90% of Blacks voted for Obama. So that “many” is apparently not too numerous.

          • George

            Dave,

            I think the number that voted for Obama was actually closer to 95%. However, I hear conservative African-Americans talk whenever I can on Fox News and talk radio. So, I know there are a number of them, even if they are in the minority. Still, I believe many African-Americans are conservative in many of their values and beliefs, but just don’t, or can’t, identify as Republicans. Having said that, I’d be surprised if the there are more than 25%-30% in this category.

          • Tinwarble

            DaveH,

            Also, there have been a number of Blacks that are having buyers remorse over there Obama vote. I would say that some that wouldn’t have considered themselves Conservative before may be thinking that they are more so now.

          • Me in Baltimore MD

            “Coal Miner” you have been breathing too much coal dust and your thinking has been foggy with it as well. I am a Black man and that is not from the coal dust. I was born that way and I like it. I’m conservative because I’ve studied the Bible long and hard and learned about freedom and the constitution as well, so believe it son, I am Black American and that makes me an American born and raised not from any other country but the good old USA and love it here, but what I don’t like is ignorant people who don’t appreciate our great country and the freedom that it offers to everyone or Demonuts who want to change the system instead of improving on it like Our Bum As president wants to do, along with the Demonuts who are blind or maybe not so blind but want the change it to inslave us all like in Russia or China etc,. I have ancestors from Africa, North America and Ireland as well. You know Slaves were raped before. So believe me I’m not white. Don’t insult me OK. What’s the rule whites go by? A little black in there makes you black. OK no problem I am not asshamed of how God brought me into this world I have advantages that you will never know, that I love God for, THANK you Lord Jesus Christ.
            God created all with different advantages. I live in Baltimore and if you want to talk to me in person than we can exchange numbers and rap about whatever OK?

To get an agreement with O-man, the exempted the car maker from the Cadillac type insurance tax but left the miners and some others out to dry!!! So I guess you and your buddies are going to have to start paying taxes on your insurance!!!! Boy I just love how loyal the union leaders are to you guys!!!

    • Tinwarble

      So, I guess that Liberals aren’t racist, oh, unless it’s a Conservative black person, then they are just traitors. And I guess Liberals aren’t greedy, oh, unless you count that you want to take other peoples money to pay for the “Global Warming” lie or give it to some 30 yr. old guy, with no job, sitting in his mom’s basement blogging about how some day his Liberal Utopia will come true & he will get everything he wants with out having to work for it. I guess you think no Liberal is an ignoramus, oh, unless you count when they go on TV and say that the earth’s core is “several millions of degrees” or they say, “the rest of us will be cannibals” because of Global Warming. Or perhaps, you think that when Obama proposed that if military personnel, who had private insurance, were wounded in the war, that they should get their private insurance to pay for their medical care instead of the government taking care of our hero’s, was a smart idea. Or perhaps all those people who were standing in the streets in Detroit, waiting for their “Obama Money” thinking he was going to get it from his “Stash”, shows a sign of intelligence.
      Just keep ignoring all those little things called facts, and tell yourself “Liberals Good, Conservative Evil”. In your little fantasy world it must be true.

      Sorry that you are so ignorant to sterotype people. I am a Republican and none of the about you describe from your viewpoint fits me or many of my BLACK friends. I believe in the 2 party system and to me the Demonuts just are not on board with the principles of a freedom privacy and liberty of individuals in the nation or individuual freedoms. They want BIG government to take care of us like we are immature babies ignorant on how to wipe our own butts. They are POWER MAD individuals who want to tell us how to live and they need to shut the H888 up and obey the constitution. Freedom is evil to them which makes them EVIL in my eyes.

    Well it’s a good thing that Steele is speaking out, but, is he doing it to sell his book, or has he really seen the light? To little to late Michael! Steele charges a hefty fee for speaking to groups and if he doesn’t change his tune, those speaking engagements will be curtailed. So maybe this is the reason he is saying all these things, admitting the wrong the Repubs have done, who knows. All I know is by the time the elections roll around, it will be too late for this country! Once obama gets this deathcare bill signed, your rights will have been sharply curtailed, if not taken away. This govt. will tell you what you can eat, drink, tax the hell out of everything, put you in the poor house and take this country to a 3rd world status! We must act immediately if not sooner. We must impeach obama, pelosi, biden, and reid or it will be for naught. Imagine Biden as president or Hillary or Pelosi. What a nightmare! If this deathcare bill is passed, his takeover of America will be complete and we are certainly doomed to a life of slavery and hope less servitude to the masters in the govt. Inalienable rights were granted to us by our creator, not the govt.! If your waiting for the ignorant masses who voted for this fool to wake up, you will see pigs flying over your house first! The leeches of this society love him for all the freebee’s they get off the backs of working Americans and they won’t ever regret voting for this anti-christ! We’ve got to act immediately, if not sooner.

    • David

      We will reverse much of the plan. It will be tough undoing all 114 of the new agencies associated with obamcare. They will only control you if you let it happen. So there’s 30 million or so liberal progressives……they will all fit nicely in CA.

  • John

    There is a wind of change in America. It’s a cold wind carrying several decades of complacency, neglect and greed. While 80% of Americans wake early, care for our families and see the children off to school, work 8 to 14 hours a day (average), then return home to help our children with their homework, pay our bills, shower then close our eyes for 5 to 7-hours then repeat…how many of us have time to oversee those who govern us?

    But in light of this question, it begs me another question, “if we have to oversee those who govern us, we have the wrong representatives.” In light of those Bills and spending sprees recently, I think we can all agree…indeed we have the wrong elected officals, and all Americans (illegals should not be allowed to vote) must serve to correct the err of our ways.

    It should have been very apparent to all of us, when our elected officials (who work for us); vote themselves raises, benefits becoming that of royalty, and elaborate retirement packages…that there was a fox in the chicken coop.

    I’ve returned all of Michael Steele’s letters requesting donations responding by saying that Republicans too have lost their conservative morales. The border didn’t just “spring open” yesterday. The spending didn’t start last year. And Americans have been screaming for passage of FairTax, Line-Item-Veto, Secure Borders, etc. for over a decade; but all this has fallen upon deaf ears. So, while Americans must accept our part of any blame, Washington and both parties must be replaced with Statesmen from our representative States who have demonstrated (at the state level)they understand the job and for whom they serve.

    Just as an Employer is responsible for his/her employees, We The People must understand that as “Employers” we have a duty to assure we have the right character and talent for the job before we vote, then hold our representatives accountable. If they fail to represent the majority, they must loose their job and any benefits of full-retirement for serving 4-years is just wrong and must be corrected.

    • Jana

      John I highly agree with you. I too have sent back a couple of the donations requests from the Republican party telling them that I no longer consider myself a Rep., but a conservative and they don’t represent me.
      Our elected officials are acting more like dictators than representatives.
      We need term limits and to have a new turnover. These people get pay raises when our economy is going down the drain.
      The Republicans should be making full use of the problems going on right now, but they aren’t. Just a few are out there making a little noise.
      Steele is doing too little too late.

      • Joe H.

        Jana,
        I have sent back every one with a note that tells them that I will donate when I see a real conservative run!!! One I even told them I would send 1000 dollars when I see a true constitutional conservative. I have it put away, too, waiting!!!

    • DaveH

      The problem is John, that the focus of most American Voters is on the wrong thing. Government can’t make all people happy. One size doesn’t fit all. We need to refocus the Voters’ attention on the fact that Big Government isn’t the solution. The only way this country is going to get back to peace is for people to re-learn that we must be responsible for our own lives. We need to learn that Government has no business in protecting us from ourselves. Their major function (perhaps only function) should be to protect us from the force of others. We need to shrink the size of Government dramatically and put those meddling Government workers back to doing productive work in the Private Sector. There are not a fixed number of jobs. If people were freed up from the meddling of Big Government, the economy and job market could once again become robust.

      • Tinwarble

        DaveH,

        I agree with you that government can’t make us happy. But we do still need a government, one that is protecting our rights not trying to rule us with laws that go against the Constitution. I think blaming those that we have elected though is missing the mark, we can not lay blame on Steele or anyone else for the not being represented the way we want. We, by we I all the voters, put these people in office we allowed them to take the power that they now wield over us. We can not put up as a nominee someone who we think is in the center, but who is just as progressive as the other candidate, & think that we are going have a more Constitutionally run government. We need to stop looking for the guy that’s the best speaker, or who we think is the most intellectual or that might be the most photogenic. We need a Conservative that is “Radical”, & by radical I mean one that will strictly follow the Constitution & not looking for that middle of the road candidate (which is always nothing more than “Progressive Light”). They could stutter & look like they have frogs strapped to their face, as long as they were honest, fairly smart, had a lot of common sense, & said that they would shrink government & not take all my money. Some one like that would have my vote, & I believe are the people we should be looking for. It is something that we need to do, we can’t look to Steele, Hannity, Limbaugh, Beck or anyone else to do it for us, instead of being lead we all need to become leaders.
        Staying a Conservative Republican & ready to take the party back.
        (Keep trying though!!!)

        • DaveH

          The Republicans have had 60 years to get the job done, and all we have to show for it is a Gargantuan Government. I’m sorry, but I don’t understand the logic of repeatedly giving them a chance when they have done nothing but blow those chances. Let’s get back to the kind of Limited Government that our forefathers envisioned.

          • David

            But Dave why not fix the Republican party instead of adding the spoiler third party which is a lite version anyway? Let the teaparty help educate those who need help figuring out which repubs need to go. The last thing we need is for the liberals to keep some seats because we are split? It takes a crisis to bring about true change and I think we are there.

          • Tinwarble

            Dave,

            To say that it is the Republicans in office for the type of government that we have is like blaming your pencil for the mistake you make when writing. My whole point wasn’t that those in office haven’t taken us further & further down the Progressive road, but that is our fault for the type of candidates that we have put up to represent us. The problem isn’t that we have 2 different parties, but that we have the same party, one that wants to push a Progressive agenda on us fast & one that is doing it more slowly, just with different names. To say to people, change to a 3rd party, only takes the same voters that have putting these people in office & having them vote in a different party. Unless you address what is really wrong, which is everyone looking for the candidate that is in the center (which is really means slightly less Progressive than the Democrat) then no matter what party people vote in you end up with the same government. It is not a new party that we need, it is a new way in which we look for a Republican candidate, not looking for the person who rides down the middle of the road, but one that actually stands for Conservative principles, it’s a change in our attitude as voters not a change of the same voters with the same attitude to a new party. I know you are passionate about the Libertarian Party, but if you were to get a lot of new voters to come over to your party, but they have Liberal ideals, & that end up putting up a Liberal thinking candidate, what will you have accomplished. You can’t take dirty water & put it in a different glass & think that it’s safe to drink, you have to filter the water first.

          • David

            Exactly Tinwarble. Watch what happens at the next 9/12 march on DC. So many people, including myself are awake now. We want to know so much more about our potential candidates than if the are left or right and that is what it is going to take to reset this country. It is being pushed in a complete death spiral now with the plain attack on the private sector.

            I have been to DC several times in the past two years fighting for the industry that I work for very existence. One of our senators (Burr) and one congress (Myrick) seem to really understand. The rest are lost. Their legislative assistants (clueless 20 year olds who are related to someone important) have told me more than once that industry as a whole needs the type of lobbyists that Sierra Club, etc do. My reply, this may be so but their only goal is to eliminate industry while ours is to create and sustain high paying jobs.

          • George

            Tinwarble,

            I’m on the same page with you. The system is corrupt and therefore I think everyone that works within it eventually becomes corrupted by it, regardless of their party affiliation. If all I can do right now is slow down the constant drift towards progressive socialism, I’ll do that. However, longer term we do have to change the system, or we won’t get a second chance. I think Dave is already there. In a few years, we may come to the same point as well.

            By the way, here’s some interesting reading that tells us something about how the system is corrupt, and some ideas how to fix it. It’s pretty long, but I’ve read it and do think it is relevent to our discussion on government corruption. http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/01082010/transcript1.html?iframe#pt2.

          • Tinwarble

            George,

            Exactly my point, you can’t be driving along and throw your car in reverse, first you have to put on the brakes.

            And Dave, Libertarians & Conservative Republicans have more in common than you may think. We both want a smaller government & agree on all but a few points. It doesn’t do your cause any good to continually attack Republicans as the “Lesser of two evils”, it will not win many over to your side. Sometimes it is better to form an alliance with those that have similar goals, than to think that it is you against the world.

          • DaveH

            I’m not in the business of winning people over to my side. I just speak the truth. And that truth is that Republicans do not understand freedom any more than do Democrats. Both have built Government ever larger with a few shiny exceptions such as Reagan and Ron Paul (who is really a Libertarian).

          • DaveH

            And Tin,
            The Libertarian Party embodies elements of Both Parties. The Libertarians respect people’s ownership of their bodies and their property. That means they can make all the screwed-up decisions they want, but they just don’t get to ride on the shoulders of others who have done the right things.
            Many of the Republicans are not Conservative. They are right-wing. They want to be our nannies. Controlling people usually end up pushing those they wish to control in the opposite direction. People behave their best when left to be free. Many Republicans don’t understand that concept.
            Conservatives respect the freedom of the founding fathers. Liberals want to cast that freedom aside and enlist Big Government to do their bidding. I consider many of the Republicans to be Liberal.
            The Libertarians understand the Freedom that men crave. And they respect the property of those same men. Neither of the two major parties comes close to those principles.
            I will always vote for Libertarians. Never for Democrats. And only for Republicans if I have no other choice.

          • George

            Dave,

            I respect you, your opinions, and your choices. So, please don’t take anything I say as anything to the contrary. But, just to share my view, I see political power as the party that can get the most votes. Obviously, without this power, you cannot implement your policies, ideas or values. So, getting elected is a prerequisite to doing anything you want to do in politics. Getting the most votes often means compromising your policies with others that have similar ideals so you can build the largest coalition of voters. If you feel you can’t compromise your policies and values, then you will likely not be able to get enough votes to win elections. This is one of the reasons why I think it’s probably necessary for conservatives, moderates and libertarians to work together under the Republican Party banner to get our candidates elected so we can control the political agenda. I think even Ron Paul recognized this, when he joined the Republican Party, and is working to change it from the inside rather than running as a Libertarian.

          • Tinwarble

            Dave,

            I am willing to except the flaws of the the Republican Party, but that is why I am trying to bring the party back to it’s Conservative values. I to feel that Republicans have lost their way, but I feel the best way to change that is from the inside.

            I don’t want to make you angry, because I look upon this as a purely intellectual debate and don’t see this as any personal attack. But frankly I don’t see the Libertarian Party as the solution either. It seems to me that Libertarians would wield freedom as a sword that they would push through the heart of civilization. Freedom does not exist in a vacuum, nor is freedom exactly free. It has never come to those who seek it without sacrifice, which sometimes means the sacrifice of what you want for what is right. And a civilization, without at least some rules, will only fall in to decadence and be left by the wayside. Our forefathers saw our nation as free one, but not one without laws to govern us.

            Now, I know as a Libertarian, you will respect my freedom to express my views, as I, as a Conservative, will do for you. But I hope that we can keep this as gentleman’s disagreement and not consider any of these comments as attacks. I just hope that you will respect my fight for my party as I respect the fight you have for yours.

          • DaveH

            Tin,
            As I have said before, I have no problem with you thinking however you want, even if it’s wrong (LOL). Seriously though, as long as you don’t call me names or ridicule me, you will be on my good side. You sound like a very decent person.

            A lot of Libertarian ideas are indeed scary, but they certainly wouldn’t destroy civility. I believe they would increase civility because voluntary contracts are much less aggravating then those that are forced upon us.

We have to DEMAND that they run the kind of people we want representing us!!! WE have to convince them, the leadership isn’t going to do it!!!

          • Tinwarble

            Joe H,

            My point exactly, blaming a party or saying that a party is better does no good. It isn’t the party, it is the people, and we have to take the responsibility for the people we have elected. If we can’t put up people who will hold true to what our forefathers wanted for our country, we will never limit governments hold over us. And even though I respect & can agree with most of what our Libertarian friends, like DaveH, believe, I feel they just go a little too far the other way, and would lead us down the same road as Rome.

  • Alan Clark

    Honestly folks, Don’t expect anything good out of any of these current reps in congress. That is a forgone conclusion. Do everything in your power, RIGHT NOW, to talk to your friends and family in a way that will stir them into a frenzy if need be. We need those people to get out there and vote for AMERICA. There is no time to waste on petty arguing and fussing over the little smoke screens thrown at us daily by the liberal news media. The BIG problem lies in Washington D.C. and it must be stopped….NOW. Be intelligent, and be informed on the issues. Don’t just grab on to what ever the media says because they LIE. We have watch-dogs in Washington and there is FOX NEWS. Get the facts, not just the stories. Know the truth so that you can make intelligent decisions and vote accordingly.

      you have got it right!!these politicians in power need to be removed, waiting three more years for doufus to be re-elected will be the downfall of our country as we know it. the demo’s (communist party) are in the process of destroying the infrastructure of the nation, healthcare first, illegal amnesty next, then the cap and trade bill that should put the finishing touch on us. if we don’t take steps now it will be too late. armed revolution is not the answer, but, if the people join in force and vote all incumbents out next election then demand doufus be declared incompetent and removed by impeachment then they can clean up this mess. our first step should be to cut the big oil connection with foreign nations, we have enough energy in the continental u.s. to last us until we find something better. we have enough natural gas to last forever (renewable) enough oil and with nuclear power we should never have a shortage if used wisely. the congress, by allowing big oil to merge and creating shortages (check standard oil early 1900′s)have dominated our economy and controlled our politics.so that monoply should be broken up. the politicians seeking power and money have let this happen and we can undo this by cleaning out our legislature’s and apply strict term limits.

      It might be about more than just greed and power, tell me does anyone know what is in that 3000 page Healthcare BILL? What freedoms have they cancelled out? Freedom of speech???? What is in that bill? I heard that one could end up in jail if thsy don’t get health insurance and are fined but don’t pay that fine for not getting health insurance. How true is that, it will be discovered I hope not too late though. Will anyone read it before it’s signed? They are famous for signing stuff that they don’t read first. O bum a has broken his campaign promise to have the Health bill proceedings exposed on Cspan he made that promise 8 different time and now he’s trying to act like he did not promise that. I wonder why? They trying to sneek through some unconstitutional crap/laws that we all gonna regret, I bet. Call your congressman !

      • Dennis

        Me in Baltimore Md,
        They want complete control of our lives. If they are footing the bill (NEVER MIND THAT IT IS WITH OUR TAXPAYER’S MONEY) then they can tell you how to live.
        Think of it this way, if you buy your child a new car and you insure it, then you have complete control of your child and the car. Telling them how, when, where, or why, or they lose that privledge, And you punish them, Note: FINE YOU FOR NOT DOING AS YOUR TOLD.
        They want the right to come into your home and tell you how to raise your kids AS they already do in our schools.
        One more of many things to put out there. ABORTION, this is about population control. When they stick this in a healthcare bill NOTE: (abortion is NOT healthcare), but they are trying to pass it in the bill, so they can control WHO has kids, HOW many kids, they also claim it’s bad for the environment. Too many diapers.
        China has had a (BIRTH) control system, now they are over populated with men. I beleive the ratio is 10 men to 1 woman. They are worried about their race becoming extinct. Chinese men are searching the U.S. for wives. For a race to survive they must have a minimum of 2 chilren per family. Muslim’s are producing at a rate of 8 to 1 of all other races Hummmm ?.
        Sorry i got off the subject but you don’t have a 2700 page bill without alot of trash in it

        • Me in Baltimore MD

          The Chinese at one point in history killed off all the baby females in the society for what ever reason, now they are womanless? They did that to themselves in their culture of stupidity. Sorry to say that but it was stupid to me anyway.

          • Dennis

            Me in Baltimore MD,
            The reason they killed off so many women was for population control, now they are 10 men to 1 woman. Now with the shortage of women they are worried about the survival of their race.
            How do you like Birth Control now America?

    Me, God bless you and your family.

      Thanks George and DIDDO.

  • Tinwarble

    ME,

    Thank you for standing up for your principles. As for people calling you an “UNCLE TOM”, you should wear that with pride. If those that call you that had ever read “UNCLE TOM’S CABIN” they would know that the writer Harriet Beecher Stowe (an American abolitionist) wrote Uncle Tom as a hero who stood up for his beliefs & who was severely beaten for not whipping other slaves & for his belief in GOD. Anyone who would follow someone else just because of color doesn’t make them Noble or show that they are standing up for their “Race” (I put race in quotations because I believe we are all one race, the Human Race), it only makes them lemmings, following their leader off a cliff. Personally I don’t care what color someone is, whether they are black, white or green with pink & purple polka dots. All I do care about is what they think, believe, their character and whether they think that America is great or if they go to foreign countries apologizing for America’s past mistakes. The color of one’s skin does not make one a great leader, since history is full of great leaders of all colors, however, history is also full of leaders of all colors who have enslaved & oppressed their people.

    • George

      Well said. Thanks.

    • Me in Baltimore MD

      Thanks Tinwarble for the encourgement. I enjoy Truth and Freedom.

    There is nothing to impeach Obama for you wacky nutjob. Kill yourself please.

    • Fed Up Gal in NM

      Careful Michael,

      In some areas of the country, you can be held liable for “encouraging” someone to kill themself. Seems you need a mirror to see how you actually look; you might be shocked.

      • Michael

        You are correct. That was very stupid of me. If the admin wants to delete that comment, that would be fine with me. I also wanted to give credit to the admin for removing all of the death threats from the page. The 5 or so death threats are no longer here.

        • Michael

          I was wrong. Some death threats are still here. Like the one threatening to hang elected officials, or eliminating the administration.

        • DaveH

          Too late Michael, you already revealed your true Liberal colors.
          The greatest exterminations in History were created by Socialists.
          How could we expect any less if you creepy people were given too much power?

    • Claire

      Michael: Shame on you–you are disgusting. Time to grow up.

      • Michael

        Too bad you did not see all the death threats Claire. Of course you only care about digusting when its not a right winger. You aren’t one of those “it’s OK if it’s a Republican and/or if I get mine” kind of people are you?

        • DaveH

          You’re one sick puppy aren’t you Michael? First you rant and rave about the “death threats” of others then you say this:
          “Kill yourself please”.

        • Tinwarble

          Dave,

          There’s no reasoning with someone like Michael, you just have to let them scream, cry and the hold their breath until they get tired and go to sleep.

            Tinwarble,
            You know how it is! Michael has been exposed to black mold from living in Mommies basement all these years!!! He can’t support himself so he wants the government to do it for him!!!! Oh, Boo Hoo!!!!!!!

        • Claire

          Michael:

          Right now I am neither Democrat or Republican. I am in limbo as so to speak and will very likel;y not vote for either party. I think I’ll vote for myself. I could do just as good. Maybe.

          • Claire

            And I would like to add–all presidents receive death threats, don’t they? As far back as I can remember they all got them. It appears to go with the territory.

    • Me in Baltimore MD

      Michael

      How well do you know the constitution? OBAMA should be impeached because he took an OATH of Office to UPHOLD the Constitution and he is not doing that in my opinion. He should have been impeached back in Feburary in my opinion. Appointing crooks and tax cheats in high office positions, that should have been Congress’s wake up call of the incompetance and then start the proceedings. But they were all too concearned about making History, etc. I need to throw up, excuse me. They making history alright! The next generations of American’s will despise us and say “What were those idiots thinking, leaving us with all this debt! DAMN THEM!!! (words removed for offensive content). That is what I would be saying if i were my grandson grown up 25 years from now. That is if we sane Americans don’t vote those Americans out of office and put some rational people in who will balance the budget and pay off our national debts.

      • Dennis

        Me,
        Most of the next Generation Voted for this ——, They have been brain washed in our colleges, schools, By our media, hollywood, and even music. Most all of them blame America or Americans for the world’s problems and we should pay for all the bad things in the world.
        NOW THATS DISGUSTING!!!

  • http://Yahoo Dee D

    So you admit the Republicans screwed up? NOW. why continue to blast Obama for the Republican stupidity? Oh I see, it all comes back to Obama’s doing. Ya know Damed if he does and damned if he doesn’t. But it really won’t fly BUBBA. The NO NO NO’S brought it on and have painted themselves into the corner. Now lets sit and watch them molt ans
    fade away. Quite a show – I like it.

    • George

      Dee D,

      Here’s my opinion. The Republicans were “spanked” by the voters in the last election. They had better admit to making mistakes if they want to reclaim any of the lost voter confidence. Also, they had better offer alternatives that the voters think make sense if they want to win any future elections. Clearly, voters are at odds with much that this administration and Congress are doing, so instead of blaming the Republicans for siding with the majority of the public, you might hold the Democrats accountable for either not doing the right things or not convincing the American public that they know better than the public. The Republicans are not really driving the train right now, but they do have the good sense to get on it. Unfortunately, the Democrats are in denial, and so far unwilling to change course to align with the American public.

      • Joe H.

        Hey Tweedle Dee & Dumb,
        You need to study your constitution a little better, then demand that your reps start living UP to it instead of living down to a socialist manifesto!!!

    • David

      Dee Dumb, I thought you and Eyes had packed up and moved to your progessive utopian world. Your dem party’s minority of liberals have created a huge problem for themselves and the entire dem party that may take you a decade to recover from after the next elections. I don’t think you will see all of those stright ticket sheeple out there supporting what ever is left of your party.

      They are retiring so fast because they can’t raise a dime or their egos can’t handle the fact that they will be crushed in November. Hopefully the Nevada racist is the next to step down.

      • eyeswideopen

        David, dude, just two of the Dems in Senate are retiring, and 10 in the House. Reps have 6 retiring in Senate and 14 in House. Let’s see that’s 12 for the Dems and 20 for the Repubs. How do you get such a idea that they have so many retiring, when the Reps have more? Facts are a wonderful thing, try checking prior to making unfounded conclusions.

        • cr747

          Making room for new blood in Government so they can impeach the Muslim president, and help the nation recuperate from all that has been going on since Obama was elected.

          He has lied on everything that he said he would do when running for the presidential office, except,”he did say vote for a change,” and now you people who voted for him are crying the blues. What a shame you didn’t listen to him a little closer, and voted for someone with some sense!!!!! He sure has made a change,”for the Muslims.”!!!!!!!!!!

      VIKTOR

      WOW Son, you sound like you live in Alice in wonderland. But you sound bewildering to me and one who has no concept of HISTORY but want to live in a HOLLYWOOD future Flick of your own making. Reality is, since you sound like an unbeliever, you might be getting ready to drop straight into the Lake of Fire reserved for the Devil and his angles, when God destroys the heavens and the earth as described in 2Peter3:1-18 and Revelation 20:11-21:5. All I have to say to you is “God loves you and he sent his Son the Lord Jesus Christ to be judged for your sins, as they were when he was on the cross, so you can excape the fate that awaits all who do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and become saved from the judgement after your/their death. Take it or leave it. But it’s always better to be safe and believe then die and find out you were wrong, it will be too late then. If that scares you then ask yourself WHY? I’m not afraid because God has saved me from such a fate. He can do the same for you. Acts 16:31; Romans 1:16 John 3;36 and 5:24. The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, Romans 6:23. Accept his gift and spend eternity with GOD and not in the Lake of Fire with Satan, demons and all unbelievers including muslims who reject God’s precious gift, forever. The Lord Jesus Christ provided the way to excape the Judgement of God. He took the judgement for us who believe in him and for everyone even muslims. It’s up to everyone to chose. To believe or not to believe. investagte the facts and pray to God for understanding. Burning in eternity forever is a long time not to investigate what I just said.

  • Viktor Lieben

    Michael Steele’s comments seemed to be somewhat controversial and refreshing. I use to be a Republican many years ago ! Reagan ! The 1980′s ! such nostalgia !!! HE just wants you to vote Republican … his job is at stake…..ha ha !

    Im my “view” It’s just the old “Republican” vs “Democrat” song and dance, nothing new…… They are such a WASTE of TIME !!!! When people realize that their will be real change. Here is what we could be doing if we got rid of these two “parties” …….

    1) We could end hunger in the world…………

    2) The reinvigoration of the US Space program … THANKS FOR NOTHING YOU CRAZY POLITICIANS ! WHEN THE DEMOPUBLICANS CANCELED THE APOLLO SPACE PROGRAM and STOPPED THE USA PLANS TO COLONIZE SPACE THEY HAMMERED THE LAST NAILS INTO OUR REPUBLICS COFFIN!

    3) The ending of despair among American Women, thus ending abortion….

    4) The political unification of the Americas ……

    5) The end of corporate Welfare ……..

    6) The Rise of new fabrication technologies, micro manufacturing facilities, that will end our dependence on CHinese goods………

    7) I could go on .. what a better country we could have !!!!

    The Demopublican party must end….

    The American people hopefully will wake up in time… they usually do…..

    • Tinwarble

      Viktor,

      Really, that’s what we could be doing? I don’t mean to sound like I’m denigrating you, but frankly it sounds like you have been to too many Star Trek conventions. You seem to imply that you like Reagan, if that’s the case, perhaps instead of complaining & setting such lofty goals, you should try to work at getting the Republican Party back to those Conservative Reagan Principles.
      But from most of that list that you put up, it sounds like you are looking for Gene Roddenberry, if he were still alive, as your nominee.

      • coal miner

        Tinwarble,

        Gene Roddenberry died.He is no longer with us.

        • Tinwarble

          coal miner,

          Thanks, but I think that’s what I meant when I said “if he were still alive”.

      • DaveH

        Reagan couldn’t even turn the Republicans in the right direction. Don’t hold your breath.

        • eyeswideopen

          Dave, hate to agree with you, but history proves you right. Regans policies did not help this country one iota.

        • Tinwarble

          DaveH,

          I know that you don’t have a favorable view of Republicans, but I hate to disagree with you, but even Glenn Beck would say, and has said, that Reagan brought us back closer to the Constitution and did it with the Dems kicking and screaming.

  • Viktor Lieben

    Tinwarble,

    You aren’t denigrating, thanks for the complement ! Frankly a hi tech world like “Star Trek” is tempting ! In a “Star Trek” universe the “Religous Right” (ie Creationist, Fundamentalist, Evangelicals, conservative Catholics and Jews) would be institutionalized in an insane asylum …..

    It’s interesting watching how the Republican Party takes advantage of theists. Your parties philosophy is Darwinist just like the Democrats. In your view the religous right are less evolved Neanderthals to be exploited. Your party never delivered on outlawing abortion. It’s a “privilege” for them even to participate……

    As another example the Republican parties “use” of former Alaska Governor’s Palin to bring back the religous rights vote during the last minutes of the 2008 election …. DOES YOUR PARTY REALIZED YOU WRECKED SARAH PALIN’S LIFE ? Exploitation and broken promises, that’s what the Republican party delivers to theists…….

    As TV Sci-Fi shows go I’m more a Glen Larson Fan. I prefer watching old reruns of “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” and Battlestar Galactica “Classic” or “Knight Rider”…. How about Glen Larson for President ? He would be a better choice than say Mitt Romney ?

    • Viktor Lieben

      Me,

      Your reply just summarized an idea of a Christian Nation, may I go as far as to assert even a normative view of Western Civilization…..

      The belief in the incarnation of the Logos is the foundation of a Christian civilization. You obviously are probably a Creationist also ?

      What are your thoughts on Ephesians 6:12 ? Do the Democrats and Republicans take their orders from Fallen Angels ?

      I personally would welcome, wholeheartedly and without reservation, a world government ruled by the Logos (ie Jesus Christ)…..

        VIK

        Well if you have accepted Christ as your Savior then you will be saved and around when the Lord returns to set up his kingdom to rule for a 1000 years. As for now, many leaders in many Nations are controled by demons or fallen angels . Like Christ said, the devil is the present ruler of this world. He accually got control when Adam and Eve fell in the garden. But their end and his as well will be coming soon, then there will be peace on earth and goodwill to all men who trust Christ. Until then there will be wars and romors of war until he comes. If you want more info on the subject and free Bible lessons of many other Biblical subjects on DVD or MP#3 visit http://www.rbthieme.org . I’ve been learning the Word under this minister for close to 40 years and very happy God has allowed me to learn so much. Have a blessed life VIKTOR, mine is because i followed 2Peter 3;18.

        • Viktor Lieben

          Me,

          We have just conversed on the some THEOLOGICAL arguments affecting governement. I have found some of the following books as being very interesting on this subject.

          On the subject of “corporeal” fallen angels (different from the idea of the demonia) – The Spirit World authored by Clarence Larkin……

          Another very disturbing theological treatise is “The Antichrist” by A. W. Pink .

          But I feel the most disturbing of all the recent Theological Arguments are that of Peter Goodgame’s
          “Against World Powers”

          I don’t necessarily agree/disagree with everything these authors say ! I’m just a sophomoric student on this topic. These great minds are very thought provoking on these subjects. I recommend Hal Lindsey’s earlier book “The Road to Holocaust” as definitely a theological treatise that pertains to the problem of recent Republican foreign policy as it pertains to Israel.

          If their are any atheist/secularist conservatives who cannot stomach a theological treatise , I recommend “The Ominous Parallels” written by Leonard Peikoff. Definitely a good atheist who has something interesting to say.

          Me , you can probably find AW Pink and some of Peter Goodgame stuff on the internet. I recommend you “rightly divide” like a Berean what they have to say…. Peter Goodgame “Against World Powers” is the most shocking I’ve read on this subject …..

          Size up what the demopublican party is doing — the blind leading the blind ?

          • Me in Baltimore MD

            Viktor

            thanks for the reference sources but I study the Bible from a greek and hebrew Pastor-teacher. I have read Clarance Larkin’s book on dispensations. My Pastor also was an expert on Escatology and prophecy. So I think I have a good idea about what the Bible says about the future events and prophecy.

            Thanks for your concern
            I’ve studied the Book of Revelation, word by word, verse by verse as taught by him. It was very interesting and informative. It took 600 hour lessons to go through it.

    • Tinwarble

      Viktor,

      Your response really says everything about you and thanks for sharing you personal TV watching habits, that really explains were you get you idea’s.
      As far as your thoughts about Christianity, it sounds as though you got your information for TV and Movies also. Here’s a little bit of advice, not everything on TV or in Movies are real or possible and just because it is said on TV or in the Movies, doesn’t make it true.
      Also, I wouldn’t really worry about Sarah, she’s a big girl. Now, go tell Scotty, one to beam up!!!!

      • Viktor Lieben

        Tinwarble,

        I can give a good theological argument for Space Colonization. The enslavement of mankind under a world government ruled by Nimrod the Apostate ( Genesis 11). Because of what happened at Babel mankind explored the Earth and established nations. Now with the threat of World dictatorship looming again, mankind has a choice. That choice is enslavement or Space Colonization …..

      Man isn’t our rights under the first amendment great. I have the right to speak freely and so do you. For now. I’m not crazy, just disgusted with what’s going on in Washington. As for my parents, they’re dead so leave them out of your comments. Attack me all you want but don’t disrespect the dead, especially those that served this country. They did a pretty good job of raising me. Let’s see, respect your elders, go to church, study hard, treat all people with respect, honor your country, obey the law, never shout at others, be compassionate, serve your country, protect your neighbor, be kind to those less fortunate, be honest and truthfull, save your money for the things you need, respect others who might not agree with you, remember the ten commandments and the pledge of allegiance. Those in my family who served in the military taught me what it means to serve your country with honor and respect. Too bad the guy in the White house and most of the Washington politicans never served in the armed forces. Maybe they would protect what was written in the constitution and abide by those words. So now it’s your turn. What’s your claim to fame?

    OPEN LETTER TO MICHAEL STEELE,

    Mr. Steele,

    I recommend SARAH PALIN for the 2012 Presidential Candidate of the Republican party.

    I also urge that the main plank for the Republican Party in 2012 be Space Colonization.

    A WORLD DICTATORSHIP such as in Genesis 11 MUST BE STOPPED ……….

    WE are running out of time, we may never get another chance. The success of the Apollo landings on the moon are evidence of a benevolent Creator. We the People of the USA were allowed, by the grace of God, to leave this prison planet.

    WE must continue this story of FREEDOM, do not let it end in NATIONAL SUICIDE or WORLD DICTATORSHIP.

    THE REPUBLIC MUST COLONIZE SPACE !!!

    A MEMBER OF THE CHRISTIAN RIGHT,
    VIKTOR LIEBEN

    • Me in Baltimore MD

      Viktor

      That is not a solution to any problem that we have in the world. When the true Lord Jesus Christ returns he will solve the world problems when he sets up his kingdom on earth. When he returns again at the 2nd advent. So going into space is not wise at all. Don’t fall for that non-sence. Do you know that when the ord returns for his true church, called the rapture by most Christians but should be called the “Exit essurrection” 1Corinthians 15:51-53 and 1Thessaloniand 4;13-18, on that day the 7 year period of tribulation will begin and at the end of that period Chrst will return with his Church and set up his kingdom on earth and rule for 1000 years. Study you Bible OK? or call 7136213740 and order the Revelation series. But they will want to start you off with the Basic Bible Doctrine before the Revelation series. The MP3′s are free.

      • Viktor Lieben

        Me,

        Check out my post to your argument, it’s after your post on jan 13 at 4:24 pm…..

        Watch out saying the “Tribulation” is starting right after the “Rapture”. Their me be another parenthetical age between the Rapture and the Tribulation. This “Larkinian Interval” (thanks to Clarence Larkin) may be a time for the World system to 1) Rebuild Babylon into a mega-city 2) degenerate because the “salt” of the Earth have disappeared and the 3) Re-emergence of Occult phenomena that was being restrained during the Church Age. There might be an “interval” of a thousand years between the Rapture and the Tribulation ….

        So when you go back to Church this Sunday ask your Pastor about a “Larkinian Interval” between the Church Age and Daniel’s final week …….

    I still would not vote for her but,

    1. ‘Hillary Was Right’ About Obama and Terror

    During the 2008 presidential race Hillary Clinton’s campaign warned that if a national security crisis arose with Barack Obama in the White House and the “red phone” alerting him rang at 3 a.m., he could not be trusted to adequately respond.

    “Turns out Hillary Rodham Clinton was right all along,” declared Charles Hurt, Washington, D.C. bureau chief for the New York Post.

    Hillary’s warning in a campaign ad suggested that an Obama White House would so downplay the threat posed by terrorism that “the government’s focus would shift away from the harsh and determined tactics used to protect the homeland,” Hurt wrote on Friday, adding, “Instead, Obama would turn his attention to becoming more popular in the world and stress negotiations over hardball tactics.”

    vThat attitude has trickled down to all levels of the government responsible for national security, according to Hurt.

    On Thursday, President Obama sought to calm Americans’ fears about the terror threat following the attempted bombing of a plane on Christmas Day. But “there wasn’t much to see in the White House other than bungling of previous bungling,” according to Hurt, as the administration rescheduled Obama’s address to the country several times.

    At 8 a.m., the White House said the president would speak at 1 p.m. Then at 1 p.m., the announcement came that he would deliver his address at 3 p.m. At 3 p.m., the White House said Obama would speak at 4:30 p.m. He took the podium at 4:34 p.m.

    Hurt cited Obama’s trip to Cairo last year to address the Muslim world, when he said it is “part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear,” and opined, “If you have time for such nonsense, then you are not spending enough time thinking about how to thwart this enemy.

  • http://beltleash.com Joseph R Carreiro Sr

    If a Muslim straps a bomb on their body and becomes a martyr and achieves heaven and 72 virgins,this is not a stereotype,this is a Radical Muslim. I think we have to figure out percentage wise how many Radical Muslims vs wonderful Muslim people.Then we could use the word Radical Muslim freely and be correct in our statements. How much proof of this do we need? Fort Hood,Texas-the Christmas Bomber-the Times Square bomber plus too many to many to list. If this is not radical,then what is? These people have nothing to do with stereotypes,they have to do with complete hatred to America.If we cannot call them terrorists, then can we call them friends?
