    RGIII “A Cornball Brother” 

    Sad, he doesn’t know much about the man except that he is engaged to be married to a white woman.  Now, many black conservatives I know do marry white women.  But many liberal black men marry outside of their race as well, so that doesn’t really tell you anything.

    But I do have to admit, Cornball Brother I have not heard before, so I give him kudos for that.

    For those who may not be aware, RGIII Robert Griffin, III  is the quarterback for The Washington Redskins who was injured last in last Sunday’s come from behind victory.  The Skins are in the hunt in the playoffs, which when you live in the DC area, it is a big deal.  Even if you don’t like the team, you can’t escape the hype.

    Personally I am sick to death of the racial overtones to virtually every conversation we have in this country, especially when it comes to a person of color and their politics.  But I still feel that this must be exposed for what it is.  This is racism straight up.  If he happens to be a republican, he is bad.  He doesn’t care about the black community.  Which is stupid, plain stupid.  Wanting fiscal responsibility and limited government doesn’t make you a bad black man.

    Post Election Rant 

    Obviously I am very disappointed in the results from election night.  So much so, that I really have not had the heart to even write this.  But, Kathleen Parker got me out of that and quickly too.

    The truth is, Romney was better than the GOP deserved. Party nitwits undermined him, and the self-righteous tried to bring him down. The nitwits are well-enough known at this point — those farthest-right social conservatives who couldn’t find it in their hearts to keep their traps shut. No abortion for rape or incest? Sit down.Legitimate rape? Put on your clown suit and go play in the street.

    Equally damaging were the primary leeches who embarrassed the party and wouldn’t leave the stage. Nine-nine-nine, we’re talking about you, Herman Cain. And Gov. Oops? You, too. And then there were Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann, who never had a real shot at the nomination and certainly could never win a national election, yet they refused to surrender to the certain nominee.

    Did they have a right to persist in their own fantasies? Sure. But not if they were serious about getting a Republican in the White House. Thus, for months and months, Romney had to spend his energy and, as important, his money to prevail in the primaries against opponents who had no chance and who ultimately hurt him. During that same precious time, Obama’s campaign was busy pinpointing specific voters, practically learning the names of their dogs, and buying ads in niche markets.

    Wow, so it is my fault.  Not that I am even “furthest right” when it comes to social issues. I have made no bones about it, I didn’t like Mitt Romney as the nominee.  I have been saying for over a year that had he got the nomination he would lose.  I didn’t even think that because of his wishy washiness on social issues.  To me social issues are not really the purview of the federal government, and I don’t care which side is trying to make the case that they are.  You cannot legislate your sense of morality onto someone else, it comes from within.   That said, people still want to see that you have core convictions.

    I also have seen many of the more moderate republicans all across social media blaming the tea party and SoCons.  Really?  I will say it again, I didn’t like Romney as the nominee.  I didn’t want to vote for him.  When push came to shove, I went out and I did it.  Not only did I vote for him, I went out and worked my ass off trying to get him elected.  I spent the final six weeks of the cycle on trains, planes, and automobiles crisscrossing the country from swing state to swing state.  I spent 7 to 8 hours per day knocking on doors, then spend another few hours making phone calls.  I did this in close to freezing temperatures and pouring rain one more than one occasion.  I slept in hotel that I had to keep changing rooms because of bugs.  Don’t tell me that I didn’t take one for the team.

    Every Tea Party minded person I know personally did similar things as well.  Americans for Prosperity, one of the tea party umbrella groups, helped get people like me out to swing states.  Do you think that Romney was their initial choice?  Not likely, but we will never know as they don’t endorse candidates.  But, you still saw them working night and day on the GOTV effort.  Like me, they understood the stakes.

    Now, what did the squishy middle do?  Were they there?  Did the same people who are throwing this blame around at people like me get out from in front of their computers and make the same personal sacrifices that I made?  Many of the ones that I know didn’t.  They sat around posting things through social media to people who already agreed with them.  Boy, that was helpful.

    One thing that was proven without a doubt is that the moderate wing of the party cannot the presidency without the crazies from the far right.  To the people who believe that all life is sacred and is worth fighting for.  I will admit that some go too far for my tastes.  I refuse to engage with people who show horrific pictures of dead babies and ask me if I think it is ok to rip babies out of their mothers wombs.  That is emotional blackmail.  But, if you think that same tactic isn’t used on the left you are sadly mistaken.  They take one person out 45,000 that has some obscure sob story and then tries to pass a law that forces everyone in the country to change their life in order to accommodate their plea of the day.  While of course the opposite is true as well.  But I am sick to death of hearing that I caused the loss of the senate and I am somehow personally responsible for Romney’s loss.

    I was there, I was in a tightly contested county in a swing state on election day.  No kidding, they had me knocking on doors that already had literature on it.  I called and told them that this was happening.  I was told to just keep going.  I walked seven miles on election day, going door to door.  At one point I had to find a woody area so I could go to the bathroom because I knew that one of the drivers wouldn’t be able to get me in time, I was so far out from the victory office.  Luckily I had napkins with me.

    After returning from day of door knocking I was making calls all day.  I was calling Minnesota.  You know what, 3 out 5 calls were wrong numbers due to bad area codes.  How the heck is that my fault?  Didn’t the campaign bother to update the phone lists?  Apparently not.  The campaign is denying the story of software they created for the GOTV effort, but I can tell it was true, at least in Ohio.  It wasn’t working properly.

    Where was the Romney campaign in Wisconsin?  Why didn’t they use the popularity of Paul Ryan as the hometown boy with the all the advantages they had with Governor Walker’s grassroots efforts?  They didn’t put enough resources in that state.  That is my fault how?

    I am sick to death of hearing that my voice shouldn’t matter in the party.  That my views are somehow less important than theirs.  That I should be giving up on my principles to tack left.  Because heaven knows that is what the democrats do when they lose elections.  They moderate.

    I happen to believe that we need immigration reform in this country.  But I am not willing to sell out my principles in order to get it.  The facts are President Reagan signed immigration reform decades ago, did that help bring Hispanics into the party?  No it did not.  Did the democratically controlled congress keep their end of the bargain?  If they had we wouldn’t have millions more in the country.  Read the law that Reagan signed Ms. Parker.  The borders were supposed to be secured.  The law was supposed to go after employers that violated the law by giving any additional positions to illegals, oh excuse me, undocumented workers.  None of that has happened.  So I am supposed to put my trust into the democrats doing the same again?  I guess if I am stupid I should.

    What people like you Ms. Parker are really saying is that my views matter so little that I should be just cast aside.  Lets also take a stroll down memory lane of the past few GOP presidential candidates.  McCain, a moderate.  Dole, a moderate, Bush I who governed as a moderate and destroyed the yacht industry while president.  An industry that all these decades that has never come back, and never will.  Thanks to his “luxury” tax thousands upon thousands lost their jobs, companies went out of business, and America, once the #1 exporter of said yachts is now the #1 importer.  The industry died and it cost the tax payers millions and millions of dollars.  Yes, that is the leadership that the right should be looking for.

    President Bush 2 is the only one of them that was ran as conservative unabashedly.  He was successful not just once, but twice.  Now, he still ended up with big government polices and spent money like a drunken sailor (sorry to all you drunken sailors) that has gotten us to the point where we are now.  Above and beyond all the money and the big government policies that President Bush promoted and acted upon during his presidency, his biggest sin was acting like you are suggesting.   He rolled over and allowed the left to control the narrative.  He didn’t fight back on all the lies.  He felt that the presidency shouldn’t be used in that way.  While in theory I agree with him on that.  I, to have a great deal of respect for the office of the presidency, but times have changed.  We have 24 hour news cycles and cable channels that do nothing but spit out a point of view and will use lies if necessary to promote their agenda.  That must be countered and countered hard.  His refusal to do it, is a big part of the reason we even have a President Obama.  So no, Ms. Parker I reject your advice.  The protection of religious liberties matter.  I will fight for them from shore to shore in this country.  The word marriage has meaning.  If gay marriage was simply about benefits, the problems would have been solved years ago.  If DADT tell was simply about serving in the military we would not have seen people in uniforms marching in Gay Pride parades this year, even though that is clear violation of military code of conduct.  You wouldn’t see gay couples suing conservative churches to perform marriage ceremonies.  They are trying to say that my beliefs are bad, that there is something inherently wrong with them.  I don’t care what a gay couple does in the privacy of their bedrooms, but I do care what they are trying to do to my church.  They want tax write-offs and hospital visitation fine.  But stay out of my place of worship.

    Did it ever occur to you Ms. Parker that Romney was never able to make the connection to voters?  Did it ever occur to you that he never gave a coherent reason of why he should be president other than he wasn’t Obama?  Now that was more than enough for me, but for the low information voter it wasn’t.  Most people don’t like change just for the sake of change.  They will dance with the devil they know.  That is part of human nature.  Did it every occur to you that people in this country don’t want to elect someone who is wealthy as he is?  The left, that you seem all too willing to model after, has done a great job in creating a society that wealth is a bad thing, that people with money are ogres, evil, and someone who isn’t compassionate.

    People in this country want conviction Ms. Parker.  Romney didn’t show that he really had that.  People want real conviction because it is a sign of leadership.  Stop blaming me and put the blame where it belongs, on the left who have convinced people that anyone that dares calls themselves a republican, or gasp even worse a conservative, lacks compassion and is racist.   Look in the mirror Ms. Parker, because you yourself have bought into that argument.

      Great rant…and sorry you went through all that. The only place I might disagree with you is saying that all those that ran with Romney were not ready to be President. Compared to what is in the White House, any of them would have been an improvement.

      The Bushes, and as they call them, the Rockefeller Rhino’s CONTROL the republican party. They are globalists. (Mitt was one of them and Karl Rove helped PUT him in the nomination with his positions oon FOX.) America comes second to the global causes…and the global causes will continue.

      Look how certain you were that Mitt was the only man who could compete. Do you know that for sure?

      I am convinced, that Obamacare was wanted by the Rhino’s too, BECAUSE the big corporations were whining about having to compete with China and all the other countries…they want the state to take over all health care.

      Do you see a pattern here? McCain..they ran him to lose…but attached a tea party person with him to get support and make us THINK that the Rhinos’ were going to be conservative. The VERY same thing was done with Mitt.

      The Rhinos wanted Obama in for another four years….Tell me, why put Paul Ryan in, and then he literally disappeard. Did you noticed that Mitt didn’t look the least bit upset? Nieither did John McCain.

      What’s wrong with that picture? And Boener says the “tea party” is gone?

      Really?

      Running Ryan and Palin with them was only to make you think that they believe in the “tea party” causes. And look what they did to Ron Paul. You didn’t hear about it, but his people were threatened and even denied notice at all the primary voting.

      It’s globaization that is the plan. There is a reason that everything comes down to “one” vote.

      Many American, like me, don’t buy the BS anymore. Being a ‘teaparty” suppporter of our Constitution, which have you noticed is just a piece of paper now, I am now regarded as obsolete. Notice the very next day, all the pundits on FOX were going toward amnesty, and women’s rights…

      Where was the outrage? On the blogs. Which have NO power whatsoever. Presidents can start wars, send billions to other countries, while their own people suffer…

      They WANT you to complain….because they know you have no power whatsoever. It’s necessary to release all that anger.

      It’s all about the money…and keeping certain dynasties in power.

      Will I ever vote again?

      Not unless the middle of the country secedes and we start over.And I don’t think I’m the only one who feels like that.

      The Chances of Obama letting that happen?

      None. Remember Janet Reno.

      Great women like you should now be putting all that effort into forming another start….and that start is not going to come by working for either party in power.

      America as we knew it, is gone.
      We can keep it in our hearts, and give in to the upcoming tyranny..
      Or we can get together and decide a new course. And that course will NOT be hoping to elect “conservative” Congressmen. They have it rigged that the party leaders always make the decisions.

      Newt did it. And remember, for all his conservative talk, he LOVES the Toefels…who have been writing about the social engineering of Americans for years. It’s all being done as planned, and slowly. And thier hard work has paid off…

      According to my son, the people under 25 are already lost.
      And that’s why Obama won.

      Great rant, JACG, and I second it. The thing that we have to look at, I believe, is the way that conservative principles are expressed. The left, Alinsky-soaked and sound bite driven, have the upper hand, but we do ourselves no favors by talking over their heads. Conservatives are smarter. Period. But that isn’t enough. We need to be able to sound bite our points, and that, I fear, is where we are lacking. We keep getting drawn into these bizarre arguments (we want black “back in chains,” we want women barefoot and pregnant, in the kitchen, etc.–that’s what the left wants. What they need to push their narrative. We need to counter that by showing how and why our principles are better, how and why they lead to a freer people, to more opportunity for ALL, to a justice that is equal, not weighted by false narratives and hate. Until we manage that, we will lose.

      Great rantm btw.
      Have NOT watched any news … have not seen/heard any speeches or excerpts from either candidate. I have been in a foul mood since the election. It is taking time to get out of this. I blogged furiously on as many sites I could click on arrogantly putting out the truth trying to expose the lies … but it seems to no avail b/c it fell on deaf ears, blind eyes & walking-dead minds.

      So … what is MY comment MY shock MY disappointment on this years election, 2012?

      Here is an article from Canada. Couldnt say it any better!

      Subject: Fw: Editorial by a Canadian (concerning Tuesday’s Presidential election)
      Date: Nov. 10, 2012

      This was written by a Canadian.

      Somehow, I feel as if I should be apologizing for all of my positive editorials pointing to a Romney victory. But, how can I be expected to apologize for half of the American population who celebrated a GREAT victory of the TAKERS over the MAKERS?

      The finger pointing has already begun with pundits analyzing what Romney should have done, and what he shouldn’t have done.

      So let me give it to you straight . . . ROMNEY IS BLAMELESS. He ran a great campaign.

      It is the people who blindly reelected an already FAILED American Idol who bare the blame.

      From everything I’ve read, seen and heard, Mitt Romney is a very decent person who ran on a REAL platform. He spelled out what his plan was for America. And he stood firm on genuine policies that offered the American people a roadmap out of the impending disaster – towards instead . . . to American prosperity.

      On the other hand, Obama promised FREE birth control pills. He promised to punish the MAKERS with higher taxes and more regulations. And he promised to give the Something-For-Nothing Bunch their FREE RIDE.

      Obama won the Black vote because he’s Black. There is no question about it. NONE WHATSOEVER . . . America is a RACIST country where the Blacks vote on the basis of color.

      Obama won the Hispanic vote because he promised the Hispanics the RIGHT to violate American Immigration Laws, and to give them rights and privileges unavailable to other communities.

      And he won the general vote because of the lack of intelligence of the American people, a level of intelligence, which after yesterday’s election results is beyond understanding.

      I’ve been hearing this morning from some Republicans on television, how the Republicans have to change their philosophy and strategy to attract more women, Blacks, and Hispanics. But, none of these people with this stupid idea have said how.

      THEY SHOULD JUST SHUT-UP . . . AMERICA HAS SUFFERED ENOUGH WITH THE RINOS.

      If the Republicans should decide to abandon their principles to BUY Female, Black, Hispanic and WELFARE votes, how would that make them any different from the Democrats?

      HERE IS WHAT BEAT THE REPUBLICANS that would have made Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels proud.

      YELLOW JOURNALISM AT ITS WORST:

      It would not have made any difference WHATSOEVER who the Republicans would have chosen to be their candidate, since the media would have found or created any way they could to demean him or her, to the point of OUTRIGHT Character Assassination.

      It’s one thing for the media to be in the so-called tank for Obama. It’s not right, but just about everyone has a bias. But . . . having the media doing the work of lying and covering for Obama is another thing entirely.

      CORRUPTION OF THE MEDIA:

      The mainstream media withheld vital information from the voters. They highlighted NON-EXISTENT Obama successes, while keeping serious Obama failures from the headlines, such as how the President contributed to the murder of FOUR Americans in Benghazi . . . AND THEN LIED ABOUT IT.

      The media . . . for all intent and purposes NEVER covered how Obama’s Arab Spring has become the World’s NIGHTMARE. And how Europe is already falling over the edge of the financial cliff without so much as a whisper from Obama.

      Or how Iran is laughing at Obama’s America, while they work away at building their BOMB that can “WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE MAP”, while holding the rest of the world HOSTAGE.

      The media NEVER even discussed the abhorrent cost of gasoline at the pumps, the rising cost of food and essentials, laying the blame at the feet of Obama, as they surely would have, had the President been named George W Bush.

      That said . . . While the media LIED outright for Obama, they also participated as willing accomplices in the never-ending series of outright lies and distortions against Romney.

      THERE ARE NO POLITICAL CENTRIST OR INDEPENDENT MINDED VOTERS:

      Like most people, I was expecting those Centrist and Independent minded voters to come in huge numbers to Romney’s side. But that never happened. And it didn’t happen because there really are no Centrist or Independent-minded voters.

      There are people who like to define themselves as Centrist and Independent because it makes them feel special, where in reality, they are on the LEFT pretending to be something they are not.

      THEN THERE’S POLITICAL LEADERS LIKE CHRIS CHRISTIE:

      Chris Christie HELPED Romney lose this election by telling all of America’s population how proud he was of PRESIDENT Barack Obama, for being such a great President and UNIFIER during the hurricane crisis.

      Just for giving Obama this ENDORSEMENT during such a critical time . . . Christie should never be forgiven.

      HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE:

      The following are KEY issues at the top of Obama’s agenda from the first day he won office in 2008, that he will now push for with every fiber of his being.

      1 – Obamacare will destroy the world’s best healthcare system, while spending Americans into the poorhouse, as he moves to fully eliminate private insurance options.

      2 – There will be CARD-CHECK, giving the Unions unfettered power over the MAKERS.

      3 – The Media Fairness Doctrine will become a part of FCC regulations that will go a long way to muting Conservative voices.

      4 – Fewer manufacturers will set-up shop in America.

      5 – Businesses of all sizes will focus almost entirely on reducing the size of staff to avoid the astronomical costs of providing employment.

      6 – Unemployment will rise significantly.

      AND THEN THERE ARE THE REGULATING CZARS AND EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

      THE OBAMA SUPREME COURT . . . Perhaps one of the MOST damaging long-term results of this election victory for the LEFT, will be the NEW Supreme Court that will be appointed by Obama, that will push the Court FURTHER to the LEFT than anyone can imagine.

      In essence . . . what we witnessed last night . . . is nothing short of the irreversible step towards the end of the American DREAM and that Shining City On That Hill.

      SO WHAT DO FREEDOM LOVING CONSERVATIVES DO?

      As a result of this election – a whole new strategy by Conservatives WORLDWIDE must be developed, where people who believe in INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS opposed to Socialist COLLECTIVIST RIGHTS, must come together to separate ourselves from the masses.

      THE REVOLUTION STARTED YESTERDAY:

      Like just about EVERY Conservative, I was sickened watching the returns, thinking to myself . . . What the HELL?

      Why should I even bother to write and fight to the point of personal sacrifice, when more than half of the people are so ignorant of consequences in search of COLLECTIVISM and intrusive government, that they WILLINGLY threw their country under Obama’s Bus?

      When that New York SCREWBALL Mayor (Bloomberg) legislated the size of soft drinks FREE PEOPLE could NOT buy, who accepted HIS decision to take away THEIR Freedom, it said all that needed to be said about how unimportant FREEDOM means to most people.

      THIS ISN’T JUST AN AMERICAN PROBLEM . . . this is a GLOBAL disease that must be defeated.

      In my next editorial, I will write about what we can do to win back our FREEDOMS and punish those who are taking our FREEDOMS away.

      Today is indeed a very new day.

      Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
