The Election That Spawned A Revolution

The Election That Spawned A Revolution
PHOTOS.COM

Tomorrow, you will vote and hopefully Americans will know very quickly — without too many hanging chads, faulty machines or fraud accusations — whether President Mitt Romney or President Barack Obama will hold the Nation’s highest office for the next four years.

After the election, some Americans will feel victorious and others worried. Some will likely take to the streets in celebration while others prepare for four years of political hardship for their party. And still more, those damned third-party-voting electorate-splitters (as many of you refer to them), will shrug and expect little change.

For whom you are planning on voting in this “landmark” election matters very little in the grand scheme of America’s inevitable creeping slide into turmoil and tyranny. It’s a bait and switch enabled by political theater in its grandest form.

Some of you began this long, painful election season wishing for a truly conservative candidate but are beaten down by political grandstanding to the point that you now believe “anyone but Obama” is the answer to America’s many problems. At this point, you have effectively been beaten into submission by the cowardly and unconservative Republican Party so much that you believe moderate Romney, with his crony capitalist background, is the answer to reversing impending economic mayhem. One can only hope you are right that Romney will be elected, reverse Obamacare on his first day, single-handedly turn around an economy that is heading for Grecian territory, create jobs for the millions of unemployed and keep the Nation’s geopolitical foes at bay.

Others believe truly that the current President was using his first term as a practice swing and that the promises he made in 2008 will be fulfilled in a second term. You think that if your man is re-elected, in the next four years senseless wars will finally end, stimulus will miraculously begin to work, the government will become transparent, green energy will make the Nation new again and the impoverished in the country will become educated and receive good jobs through government benevolence. One can only hope that you are right, as well.

Both groups believe that if the wrong man reigns victorious, America is doomed. But in that respect, it can be safely said that you are all wrong. America is doomed either way, as are its people.

  • Corporate cronyism, international bankers and corrupt politicians will maintain and, in fact, grow control over the United States.
  • The National Defense Authorization Act, the police state and warrantless surveillance will exist unabated.
  • Government will grow, as will its debts.

The purpose of this article is not, however, simple divisiveness. It is not a final plea from a contrarian who believes that American citizens should send a big message to government by not voting or by voting for a third party candidate en masse. Vote for whomever you want.

But after the election, let’s be Americans again. Not Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Libertarians, Homosexuals, rich white guys, modern women, Christians, Muslims, young voters, etc. Let’s be citizens of the Nation not first, but only after we are members of families, neighborhoods, communities, cities, counties, States and regions, respectively. Look around you; these are the people that matter. No amount of bloviating by the likes of government bureaucrats and media pundits seeking to divide the Nation as a whole neatly into categorical political armies can change the simple fact that it truly is a battle of us versus them. It’s those inside the Beltway and the marbled halls of statehouses with their hands deep in the pockets of lobbyists and even deeper in Federal coffers versus those who make communities work — and who would have a much better quality of life, built by their own hard work, if the Federal government worked only in its Constitutional capacity.

That’s not to say that every individual that works in government does so with malicious intentions. And regardless of who is elected President, there’s still a chance for Americans to make this the election of a lifetime. This could be the one that after which the populace was awakened from a century and a half of political stupor.

People like Ron Paul have already set the machinations in place that could help the American people take back the Nation, starting in their very own communities, by illustrating the point that it is time for a political revolution wherein everyday people immerse themselves in government. Sitting at home and staying informed about what decisions are being made for you by the Federal government will no longer do; it’s time to change the way government works from the ground up.

Many people might say that this is an impossible and idealistic undertaking. But imagine the difference that could be made by such small steps as every county in the Nation working to ensure that its sheriff would uphold the U.S. Constitution to the hilt and defend it against Federal assaults at all costs. That would equate to more than 3,000 American lawmen in charge of departments dedicated to defending the Constitution. The same could be done with councilmembers, mayors, prosecutors, judges and commissioners. It’s a daunting task, but organizing in communities is much easier than attempting to sway the result of corporate- and media-controlled national elections.

There is an anecdotal story that often makes rounds in liberty circles: Two thousand years ago, a Roman Senator suggested that all slaves wear white armbands to better identify them. “No,” said a wiser Senator, “If they see how many of them there are, they may revolt.”

After the election, no matter the outcome, lay aside the partisan squabble and put on your proverbial white armband. Encourage your family, friends and neighbors to do the same regardless of political differences. If the criminal class in Washington D.C. sees how many people there are willing to work in communities across the Nation to put America back on the path to righteousness in the big, Constitutional ways first (focusing on the political campaign rhetoric fodder only after the real work is done), they just may clean up their acts. Or at least they may fear the populace enough to cede power back to the people.

If not, things are going to get much worse before they ever get better.

    Ah, if “government only worked in it’s constitutional capacity”…….only requires you to
    determine a time when it actually did that as well as a similar determination as to what
    “in it’s constitutional capacity” actually means……

    Considering that no one seems to know what “government’s” role in securing those so called unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness requires, the
    “constitutional capacity” for doing so seems a somewhat ephemeral “reach”,
    and it might even explain why it never worked in the first place……but the words
    do sound nice,,,,,,,,,don’t they?

    Given that: Corporate cronyism, international bankers and corrupt politicians will maintain and, in fact, grow control over the United States. ( and they have complete control NOW )

    It would seem that the “constitutional capacity” to prevent or control that outcome did not
    exist……and in fact does not exist and you have a presidential campaign being run on
    the premise that it should not exist…..and a portion of the “people” who love the words
    so much, but have NEVER UNDERSTOOD THEM…….that “government” in it’s constitutional capacity” is the PROBLEM……..which is the same message that the
    corporate cronies, international bankers and corrupt politicians are sending.

    But the words are so pretty, are they not?

    let’s be Americans again. Not Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Libertarians, Homosexuals, rich white guys, modern women, Christians, Muslims, young voters, etc. Let’s be citizens of the Nation “To conquer, first DIVIDE!”

    “There is an anecdotal story that often makes rounds in liberty circles”?????????????

    I once heard this little phrase in a “liberty circle”….it goes like this…..

    “The right to swing your fist ends at the point of my nose.” ( or vice versa…be curious
    to see which way one chooses to present that little bit of “liberty”……)

    But even more interesting would be if anyone actually believes it……..because the
    REALITY is this……..if your exercise of “liberty” looks like it might be even coming
    close………we are going to have a PROBLEM.

    The maintenance of life has certain requirements, however just to be clear, let’s
    consider the “business” definition of maintenance…….

    1. Activities required or undertaken to conserve as nearly, and as long, as possible the original condition of an asset or resource while compensating for normal wear and tear.
    2. Accounting: A periodic cost incurred in activities that preserve an asset’s operational status without extending its life. Maintenance is an expense that, unlike capital improvement (which extends an asset’s life), is not capitalized.
    3. Engineering: Actions necessary for retaining or restoring a piece of equipment, machine, or system to the specified operable condition to achieve its maximum useful life. It includes corrective maintenance and preventive maintenance.
    4. Law: (1) Meddling in litigation (without having a genuine stake) by taking sides, and/or giving financial or other assistance to one of the litigant parties. See also champerty. (2) Financial support or supply of necessities given on court orders by one party to another such as upon a divorce or legal separation.

    Might be interesting to consider that in the process of “trying” to become “Americans”
    FIRST……..that we begin to define “governments” role in securing the “right to life”
    as somewhat in line with say numbers 1.) and 3.)………

    And that Adam Smith’s definition:

    “A man must live by his work, and his wages must be at least enough to maintain him. They must even on most occasions be somewhat more: otherwise it would be impossible for him to bring up a family and the RACE of such workmen could not last beyond the first generation.”

    Might, upon careful consideration…….not quite measure up?

    From a strictly “moral” perspective among “we the living” regardless of our differences
    on the meta-physical meaning of life…….that determining “constitutional capacity”
    might be best pursued if it were initiated from THIS understanding……rather
    than just mouthing platitudes because the “words are pretty” but have yet to
    be understood?

    Historically, every government and economic system that has arisen in conjunction
    with it since the advent of agriculture HAS FAILED……..and it is also useful to
    note that there has been quite a legacy of “pretty words” that have been passed
    forward…….and many more that have been lost……..

    Just for fun and just as a change of pace and a potentially different outcome…..
    might it be more useful if we took the time to actually understand what these words
    really mean………instead of pretending that we do or ever did?

    Who knows…….once understood we might have a shot at “constitutional capacity”and
    determining the actual role of government?

    • TIME

      Dear Galt,

      Saddly learning what the words ~ REALLY ~mean at this point in TIME ~ is too late, People only start to get with the program when its just about twilight, saddly the American people squandered their freedoms on shopping malls, and trips to nowhere at a cost that have now become clear to even the most blind.

      Saddly,as the old adage goes: { a dollar short and a day late.}

      Peace and Love be with you.

    • rick

      Your pride in your own intellect is obvious in your post. It is a false pride. It takes little intellect to point out obvious problems. It takes great intellect to design and implement positive and lasting solutions.

      You seem to miss the distinction between constitutional principles and the Constitution. The principles are sound. The document has imperfections. Do you believe in the principles behind the Constitution, or not? If so, how would you modify the document to better reflect the principles behind it? If not, what would you replace it with?

      • GALT

        Always nice to know that someone knows something…….gives us something to start with…

        “The principles are sound.”

        Excellent!!!!

        1.) Please provide a list of these “principles”.

        2.) Please provide the precise “constitutional” location of each?

        3.) Please provide the precise co-relation of each of these with the government’s role
        in securing the the right to “life” as it pertains to the aspects of maintenance in 1.) and
        3.) of the included definition and for “liberty” as well as the “pursuit” of happiness?

        4.) Please precise the co-relation of each of these that “prevents” Corporate cronyism, international bankers and corrupt politicians will maintain and, in fact, grow control over the United States.

        It takes little intellect to point out obvious problems.

        Good……then you should be fine, after all these “obvious principles” and the exercise
        regarding them seem to represent a critical step toward those greater tasks?

    • alpha-lemming

      My little spin on the whole “Constitutional Principals” thing is that you’ve got it 180 degrees out of phase. Government does not grant/guarantee rights (although according to Bela Pelosi,,, and I didn’t know this… free health care is a human right!!??)….. ala the Declaration of Independence…. rights… life, liberty, and “happiness” (originally property, ’til the slavery fiasco screwed that one up and allowed the Communist “camels nose in the tent” to equate property with something bad) come from…. GOD. The God of ALL men bestows these rights upon ALL men…. Governments can only take away rights. The U.S. Constitution is the ultimate document unleashing the power of the individual. This is the ONLY explanation as to how a rag-tag collection of religious zealots could rise to the status of pre-eminant world power in <200 yrs vs. alternate governments (in which you're subject to the whims of the Emperor, Monarch, Caliph, Tribal Chieftan etc.) which have existed for thousands of years. It's all due to the power of the individual and the Constituitions guarantee to allow self direction.

      Simplistic, in that to function properly and thrive, you need foudations like rule of law, morals, common goals and language, a little bit of altruism etc….. but under it all, it states that minimalist government is the American way instead of a totalitarian model, whether that be a Monarchy, Dictatorship, or a 3-headed monster "King Ghidorah" government masquerading as a Representative Republic.

      • GALT

        thanks for the spin……..clueless is cool…..but you should just say….

        I am clueless……….

        because that whole declaration thingy……….was pretty much NEW….on a couple of different points………

        just powers derived from?

        rights secured by?

        everything else was just the present complaints……..inarticulate, normal, etc.

        Now that you are caught up?

    • John Woodbury

      Dear Galt.
      Enjoy your life, tomorrow PLD will be rid of you and other paid shrills no matter who wins. If your Dear Leader wins, enjoy life quickly, useful fools are the first to go. I am very happy all of you “ideocrats” will be out of my life for 3 years; oh, I know some of you will still hang around, but not paid any more, you will leave. Excellent Ideas Sam, hope some people can change, but the smart money is on NO. Heard Dear Leader saying in his second term he would reach across the isle and encourage both sides to work for the common good. Now where have we heard that before? Take a page from the Democrats, Vote early and often.

      • GALT

        Couldn’t care less who wins…..I ain’t paying for it…….and I have rights…..via UCC 1-207/308………

        As a P.L.F. I also don’t have a leader……because I am not a follower……but I unlike YOU
        know where I am and the REALITY that I am facing………

        But you have fun now….ya hear?

      • phideaux

        “As a P.L.F.”

        Galt. You do know that stands for Paid Liberal Fart don’t you?

    • nickkin

      Like a blowhart that likes to hear himself brag, so do you with your rhetoric….you must like to read what you write….’LOVE OF SELF”

      • GALT

        Please be kind to Sam……those are the most words he has written consecutively
        in quite a long time and probably the most effort he has ever expended in an
        attempt to produce a meaningful essay striving to be persuasive in a fashion
        suitable to members of the liberty circle crowd……….that they are the most easily impressed by the “pretty words”, it was a temptation he has probably struggled to resist
        for quite some time, given the content of his usual offerings here.

        To have been undone by a few observations and well directed inquiries is really
        not his fault, after all it is hardly a standard that one expects to be held to in
        the normal course of human events especially in a venue where one might feel
        protected from the slings and arrows of outrageous logically reasoned criticism.

        In such a circumstance the value of your support is just so much more meaningful
        and appreciated….not quite so “nickkin” timely?

        P.S. what is a “blowhart”?

        P.P.S. Ayn Rand did share a few thoughts on that in “The Virtue of Selfishness ”
        which Christopher Hitchens believed was ultimately unnecessary.

    • Rick

      Ah, if “GALT only worked to his desired “mental capacity”…….only requires you to
      determine a time when he actually did that as well as a similar determination as to what
      “to his mental capacity” actually means……

      Considering that no one seems to know “GALT’s” goal in discussing these political matters, the “mental capacity” for doing so seems a somewhat ephemeral “reach”,
      and it might even explain why it never worked in the first place……but his words
      do carry a certain memorable fragrance,,,,,,,,,don’t they?

  • eddie47d

    Terrific article Sam Rolley and the struggle for change is forever on going. Many Americans believe our nation officially started in 1776 when that was only laying the groundwork. On March 4th 1789 our Constitution was official and we moved forward in electing our first President. That was a 13 year difference and it didn’t happen overnight so as you say if we want change to come we have to be patient and do it right and not demand instant gratification. Eventually someone of Ron Paul’s stature will come along and get us back to basic principles. This time around it won’t be Barack Obama or Mitt Romney.

    • Mikey

      Eddie, glad to hear you agree with an article for a change. I take back all the negative things I posted to you.

  • Jonathan

    Galt, your full of BS! Do you get your jolly’s out of throwing an arm load of mud in the waters? Sam Rolley has a good point in what he is saying but people like you just confuse the issues. Get a life!!!!!!!!!!

    • GALT

      Please do not short change the author’s efforts by limiting him to “one good point”….
      he has made a great many points………very familiar, very unoriginal, very contradictory,
      and very meaningless……………as are all “pretty sounding words” that have no “grasp”
      of REALITY……..

      I have taken his words and several of his POINTS…….

      For the purpose of making ONE SINGULAR POINT.

      When you get the point, you will be able to recognize the “meaningless” of the “pretty
      words” that are a distraction…….as well as the author’s who continually use them…..
      and you will finally know the meaning of one word “[expletive deleted]……..

      Who knows what will be possible after that?

      “Without knowing the force of words, it is impossible to know more.”
      ― Confucius

      • Mikey

        Galt, I can never tell if I agree with you or not. Please try to simplify your statements so all can understand. Perhaps I’m not too bright…..but perhaps, you write jibberish. Please, make a concise point if you can.

      • GALT

        Well mikey, I guess I should be heartened by your desire to know whether you agree….

        I had thought that “not knowing the meaning of the words” was about as simple as you
        can get……….

        But since I am clearly moved by the obvious sincerity of your appeal and not really clear
        on what is holding you back…..1.) ignorance 2.) willfull ignorance or 3.) functional illiteracy
        I would be most happy to do anything I can to alleviate any and all of these things from
        WHATEVER influence they may be having in YOU joining the “common cause” of “we the people”………..

        If you happen to know which one of these IS the problem, that would help……

        If not…..it would seem appropriate that YOU inquire as to that which is proving difficult, by
        asking a question?

        I am of course at your disposal to assist you in whatever manner or effort may be required…..

        You will note that I have asked a lot of questions……..and I will continue to do so.

        The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.”
        ― Confucius

        Seems reasonable to me to appear foolish for a minute rather than the alternative……

      • Mikey

        That was better, Galt. I understood it pretty well. Seems like your communication skills are best used when belittling others. They are not so good, however at making legitimate political points.

    • Wil

      John,why waste your time?Do you think GALT even has a clue what you are talking about?No,he’s merely one of the narcissistic pseudo-intellectual liberals, too lost in his own ego to have a clue of reality.

      • GALT

        Hear, Hear…….when you have nothing to say, even when gathered among other’s who have nothing to say, the end result is the a whole lotta NOTHING…….the familiarity to
        the summer of 1787 is quite striking, minus the heat and the beer……..as is the
        actual insistence that the “nothing” be heard……..Madison was kind enough to edit
        the nothing out……the rest simply did bother taking any notes at all……some things really
        being better off remaining as secrets…….history with mystery does seem to gather
        a certain gravitas with age…….

        Fortunately, Wil, we will not have that problem here now, will we?

  • http://gillysrooms.blogspot.com Gillysrooms from Australia

    Have your voters ever considered your country have been very lucky not to have had the same unemployment rates as are common in Europe and that the next 4 years might see much worse unemployment or the same.? What makes Romney think or be so confident that he can improve and reduce the unemployment rate in the USA? TO GO AGAINST THE TREND EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD?

    • http://speedle speedle

      There is a long answer for your question Gillystooms that I will try to condense for you. This country is only 236 years old. It had the advantage of being founded by a group of dedicated people who were intelligent enough to realize that a great opportunity was presented to them if they were wise enough to set it up correctly. Being mostly Europeans they were well aware of both the failures and successes of European society.

      One of the cornerstones of the construction was the establishment of free market principles and safeguards against political cronyism, entitlement disease and corruption. Unfortunately over the last several decades these safeguards have been gradually eroded to the point that the USA is almost as corrupt and inefficient as the European countries. As is evidenced in Spain, Greece, Portugal, Italy and soon France, the roots of entitlement and corruption are so deeply rooted that only revolution, destruction and rebuild will save their societies.

      Fortunately for Americans, we are not as far down the toilet as the Europeans, and yes, a Romney victory has a chance of turning the fate of the U.S. without suffering the fate of western Europe. Jobs and the unemployment rate are part of the package. Perhaps the lesson that government jobs are not real jobs in terms of economic growth will not be lost on the rest of the world. We will see.

        You were dead on up till that point. Romney will not and can not change the fiscal cliff over which we’ve already fallen. Buckle up.

      • Ted Crawford

        I agree speedle, and would only add, if I might, that the “turning the fate of the US will only happen if, at least, a majority of we ,who are currently engaged, REMAIN engaged, after the Election!

      • http://speedle speedle

        Ted, I think you are right about the diligence required. I am old enough to have been through the whole process as an adult (from the sixties on), and there has never before been an uprising as we now have with the power of the Tea Parties and interest in Libertarian ideals. We reacted to the “Red Scare” in the fifties and sixties by ultimately defeating the Soviets. I think we are reacting now to a new “Red Scare” in the form of Obama and his sixties radical ideology, and I hope it will end the same way.

  • LITTLE JOHN

    Little John:
    Tomorrow will be a large step, I hope forward, for our great nation, not only with the president election, but the senate as well. President Romney (GOD WILLING) will need a strong senate inorder to do what he must. If the repub. do not also win the senate things will be very slow in DC as Reid will try and stop every move Romney makes. It is his nature, and I pray that he will not be in charge of the senate. I have read all the post and many have a lot to say about nothing. Putting their spin on things, as it is their right to do. As I also put a spin on things, that come from my heart. I have fought for my country and given my blood for her. I love my country more than my own life itself. Many of my friends and family members are buried in the military grounds of this nation. Our country is in great pain, it is dying before our very eyes. Stand up Americans, we live by the Constitution of the United States of America and our Bill of Rights. These great documents are being walked all over by our Government. This must stop, and it must stop now. Our Constitution must be made strong again in our government and the decisions that are made, by our Congress and Senate, must reflect that. The laws being made must first be looked at, are they in violation of our Constitution. The checks must be made before they are passed into law.. ie Obamacare, that was ramed down our throats so fast no one read the law before they even voted on it. It passed the U.S. Supreme Court as a tax, get it folks a tax. We can not afford Obamacare, and we can not afford him any longer. The people must get involved in our government. Learn what is coming up and let your Congressmen and Senators know where you stand on the issues at hand. Insure the Constitution is upheld for if it is then this nation will be strong. Thank you for your time. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

  • Patriot

    The problem with our system? Did anyone see Reid & McConnell on 60 minutes last night? If you did, you know waht the problem is; these 2 bozo’s, the topic was why the Senate has done nothing the last 2 years, McConnell was trying to explain and Reid had notes with quotes trying to demonize some Senators (I felt like this was grade school stuff). The best person on the show was Colburn from OK, need to send more people like him to the senate. Lets’ do it tomorrow!

  • daniel

    Reid has already declared war on Romney if he is elected and if the dems hold a majority in the Senate. So either one McConnel or Reid accusing the other of intransigence is utterly ludicrous. I like Coburn though, he is quite intelligent and not given enough credit that is due him.
    The people nowdays seem to want others to lead them including the conservative movement. That is how we got into this mess in the first place by allowing others to lead us. In our form of government as illustrated by Thomas Jefferson it was and is supposed to be us that are the leaders. That is why the free market is so successful that it makes people jealous. Whether you are a nation or an individual looking at the rise in wealth and success of others makes them want what we have and have squandered. Tht is why we have class envy or as I put it classless envy. They want but do not want the sacrifice that goes hand in hand. The same with our form of government. It haqs been successful because we are the leaders and our empl;oyees represent us. we start our government out locally and expand it out to national. The national is supposed to listen to the locals and bring about an agreement on issues. Instead we have the hallmarks of an imperial presidency with the uselessness of a heirarchail legislature. As you can see that has been nothing short of failure. If Romney were to win the election then the work would just be beginning. Unfortunately some will take it as time to sit on their backsides and wait for the goods to be delivered. That will never happen as history has shown. So time to get a strong cup of coffee and roll up our sleeves there are long hours ahead.

    • rick

      You are so right. We have forgotten that the federal government was originally set up as a joint venture of free people and sovereign states as a way of addressing problems common to us all. It slowly morphed to become the agency for heaping the problems of a few onto the shoulders of many. Now it has become the problem for many.

      • GALT

        Seems to me you forgot the Articles of Confederation……..most of which you will find in the Constitution……..verbatim……that would be word for word…….

        which was an effort toward a “more perfect union”……..which they seem to have missed….

        if at first you don’t succeed……might be cuz you don’t KNOW what the words mean?

        • Rick

          I finally understand GALT. He is Bill Clinton. His entire argument depends on what the definition of “is” is.

      • GALT

        I guess that means rick has passed on?

        guess we will never know what those obvious “constitutional principles” were?

        Seems the little intellect it required was just too much for him?

          It is arrogant for you to expect my answer to your questions before you have answered those I posed first to you.

    It just occurred to me… With all the noise the media is making about Romney’s wealth, I don’t recall such bluster and hand-wringing over the Kennedy fortune.
    Or, for that matter, John Kerry’s. Or the fact that Kerry gave virtually nothing to charity while Romney gave something on the order of $4 million…in addition to his entire inheritance from his father.

    Oh Wait!
    I just remembered ………..Romney is Republican.
    Kerry and the Kennedys are Democrats.
    Romney worked for his money.
    Kennedy inherited his.
    Kerry married it.
    Never mind.
    Nothing to see here folks.
    Move along.

    Apparently, I’m supposed to be more angry about what Mitt Romney does with his money than what Barack Obama does with mine (and yours)?

    • GALT

      Well since you don’t have money and probably never will…..you really have nothing to be
      concerned about………..that you seem to want to talk about being concerned……is “interesting”…….

      Now REALLY not having to be concerned…….PRICELESS!!!!!

      Make take a while for that to sink home…………………….

        galt, have you considered making an appointment with a shrink? . and since when did you get all the information about my financial position, come to think about it, you may be right, my dollars have flown the coop, four dollar a gallon gas, high food prices, taxation out the yahoo, however, since barry came into his dictatorship i no longer feed the 47%ers and will leave that up to the bolsheviks.. barry money is becoming worthless it’s not worth anything even the chinese are closing the vault door. gm will be asking for more stimulus money, the unions have run it it in the ground again, now what are you bolsheviks going to do? i converted my few dollars to pesos, so you 47%ers are in big trouble, maybe hugo and raul can scrape a few pesos together for you.

      • GALT

        You have a guy named Ronald Reagan to thank…….or Alexander Hamilton……
        but why be stingy……blame your hunter/gatherer ancestor’s and the unevolved
        brain they left you……..your motivations are stuck back in 50,000 B.C…………

        Too bad the consequences are not……..still when private property and wealth creation
        were reduced to what you could carry……..the choices tended to be a bit more pragmatic
        and utilitarian…….I wonder if there was a big market in cave foreclosures? Hunting futures? Cornering the root, tuber, nut or berry market?

    The difference between Romney and O, as I see it, is that RTomney has a work ethic derived from having done work before! Romney, instead of working on his handicap in golf, will be trying to overcome the handicap of 16 trillion dollar deficit and there not being a budget voted on or passed in this country for the last 3 YEARS. How can you run a business, let alone acountry. without laying out a p&l statement or a budget(how much and where) yopu’re gonna spend money? Obama has built a magnificent alliance w/ the muslim brotherhood and the russians, oh, chaves and Castro advocate voting for him,oh & makdenajab, too.
    What the heck? There are people dying ,rightnow, in Hew York and New Jersy, but O has already had his” photo shoot” there. Note to Obama: Americans need your HELP NOW!
    Don’t sit by and watch<like you apparently did in Benghazi, just before you toddled of to bed!!
    Mr. Obama [comment has been edited] you! Just like you're doing America and it's citizens.

      Easy. Just observe Washington D.C. and remember that they can print all the (fiat) paper money they need to spend and they can levy taxes too.
