When you have nothing to lose, do the right thing

New Zeal

I looked at my husband today and seriously asked, what happened to morality? Where have ethics gone? Where is G-d in our country’s equation? Did I miss a decade?

Progressivism seems to have engulfed both sides of the aisle these days. It’s becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between the right and the left. Looks like we really have gone moderate — in a Socialized manner of speaking — Marxism for all! I have lost any faith I ever had in the parties that be. I do believe it’s third party time.

I watched this week as Boehner purged conservatives from financial committees etc. in a move reminiscent of Stalin, with rumors that he will purge even more. Evidently this was an attempt to appease the left by saying, “See! We are just like you. Please don’t hurt us.” And/or it was to punish those Republicans who don’t toe the line and are too frisky conservatively. Obama made it very clear he is willing to go off the fiscal cliff. Hell, he can’t wait, because he knows it all can be blamed on conservatives and he will get to cut taxes (selectively and marginally) in the end and look like a true hero of the State. While in reality, taxes will be raised on all. It never ends. No matter what Republicans do, they will be blamed in the end. The left and its pet media will make sure of it. By the way, this is not austerity. The left claims that Republicans are caught in an austerity trap. Austerity is not cutting ‘future’ spending. It is cutting current spending and being frugal with future spending. What the Republicans are caught in is a borrow and spend trap, versus the Democrat’s spend, borrow and tax trap. Both are killers because of excess spending and I will say it again — you cannot tax your way out of this hole. True austerity is what will happen when Obama finishes collapsing America.

The fact is, the Republicans compromise because they are weak. They have no fire in their belly – they don’t truly believe in anything but their political stations. Republicans are out planned, out thought, out organized and out fought… Too afraid of offending someone or something or missing out on power and money to stand on principles or faith. Too corrupt to coalesce and fight for what is honorable and right.

Obama is in an all out move to destroy the Republican party. Sultan Knish says it sooo well:

The fiscal cliff is Obama’s way of splitting the Conservative grass roots, who are a threat to him, from the established Republican Party, which is not.

We need to move to the right, not moderate. Not capitulate – that is suicide. We need to return to Constitutional principles and adhere to what made this country great: faith, freedom and hard work. In the end, true freedom is never found in a paycheck – slavery is. It is found in working for oneself – something that Benjamin Franklin promoted and showed the true success of. If you control your own wealth and your own food, you are free. If you do not, you are a serf of those in control.

    I don’t feel represented, we need term limits, a complete purge of the RNC. Boener has to go due to incompetence, he has been bested by the community organizer so many times that he is starting to look like the Black Knight from Monty Python.

    Well said article. Couldn’t agree more. Boner needs to go along with every RINO in office.

    Obama is in an all out move to destroy the Republican party.

    Obama’s second term agenda: consolidate power.

    “We need to bannish the depression we have felt since the election, stop wetting ourselves and gird our loins for battle. We lost a battle, not the war, so damn it… act like it!”

    And if we look at the big picture, we won many smaller battles. We have 30 republican governers and 27 state legislatures. Presidential elections bring out droves of low information voters, so if our country survives to the 2014 midterms, we will gain even more. I also agree that we need a move to the right, not towards the middle.

    Gee, can’t you see the Progressives only have good intentions? We are so lucky that people are paying taxes for all the greater good that Obama has planned for us. Please keep contributing or this wonderfulness might cease.

    Austerity for us, 4 million dollar Christmas vacation for them is their definition of ‘austerity.’

    Here’s an excerpt of why Jews will do this:

    [ As a general rule of thumb, practicing Jews do not write the name God because of the laws delivered by Moses which are found in Deuteronomy 12:3-12:4. In this passage, the Jews are instructed to destroy anything and everything associated with their rival’s gods, and they are not to let this happen to their own God. Writing G-d instead of God is one way to prevent others from destroying the name of God.

    Jews interpret the law given by Moses as a prohibition against transcribing the name of God, because they feel that if God is recorded onto a piece of paper, there is the possibility that the name will be disrespected or destroyed in some way. The general concern with writing G-d in its true form is that it might be erased, defaced by being crossed out or scribbled upon, torn, thrown in the trash, or ravaged in some other way. Writing G-d instead of God communicates the writer’s idea effectively, but since G-d is incomplete, there is no risk of defacement. The Jews have other names for their creator besides G-d, including Hashem, YHVH, Elohim, and El Shaddai, which are also not written in their complete form. ]
