Why this election is different

24 Oct


If you are not wide-awake now, you will be when you have finished reading this!!!!!

Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important question regarding the upcoming presidential election: appointments to the Supreme Court .

“I will enthusiastically support Mitt Romney’s candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep these things in mind…

1. Justice Scalia is 78.

2. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year.

3. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August.

4. Justice Ginsburg is 81. She also has pancreatic cancer.

5. Justice Stephens has already said he would retire and is just waiting for Obama to be re-elected.

The next president could appoint as many as 5 new Justices over the next 4 years, or over the next 8 years if a new President gets a second term. This election is about much more than the ObamaCare Tax. Whomever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one new member of the Supreme Court, in addition to hundreds of other life tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.”

If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, THINK AGAIN!

    And yet, I still will not soil my hands by voting for evil. Sorry, ain’t gonna happen. I wouldn’t piss in Twitt’s ear if his head was on fire. Obammy can nominate whoever he wants, the Stupreme Court is just as fucked up as the rest of government. The Constitution speaks plain, yet the Stupremes violate it regularly. We the People can rearrange all this any time we choose, but no one seems to have the back bone. The time for a political solution passed a hundred years ago. Hell, it passed in 1865…

    I understand that any chance. Any chance at all, that offers itself up to displace an administration based on power, money, lies, deception, and the defamation of the Constitution is worth taking. Even if the our only hope is to replace it with another of its type. Even if the new one is equally bad.

    Requiem for the quitters. If everyone thinks like you do, there truly is no chance. Ever. For you isolate yourself from all. Especially those who would live free. Then all that is left is to be still and take what they give to you. Which as you know all too well, is nothing. You have already relinquished everything to them. All that is left is to be still, and quiet. It was then voluntary that you do not exist, so why even bother to speak? Before it is finished, they will take from you all of your pleasures. Including your ability to create or think for yourself. They will ultimately take your life. And you will be helpful to them. For you have quit.

    Awaken the Quitter in me
    You don’t know me yet
    Don’t know what it is like
    To give up
    Even before you’ve even begun

    All the world’s a stage
    And we are all mere players
    So said Shakespeare
    But where is my encore?
    My ‘magnum opus’?
    (Where is my 10.9 seconds, goddamit?)

    Is my growing trepidation and despair?
    A harsh sound of reality, and time to grow up
    (Yeah, for whom the bell tolls)
    Is it time to consider a requiem for a “dream”
    Lay down and die, move on like those who swore
    They’d live for the music
    Or to awaken the quitter in me

    Keep the Faith, really…
    A love supreme, a “companion for life”
    Is just what the doctor ordered
    Really now?
    Er, Doctor Love does his best to intellectualize your emotions
    American (or any) woman
    Sparkle someone else’s eyes, honestly
    I’ve got more important things to do
    There will be no requiem
    Goodbye woman

    Logic demands
    How can a man understand ‘love’?
    If he doesn’t come to terms with his deepest passions
    With his greatest fears and what makes him “tick”
    A love supreme, right?
    Yeah, definitely maybe
    There’s no pursuit of happiness
    In a woman or money
    (Yeah, I’m sure you think otherwise)

    A quick-fix, I tell you
    The band-aid solution, as I think
    If you don’t love yourself
    How can you love others
    Doesn’t make sense to me
    Shouldn’t make sense to anyone, really

    And the Greatest of These is…
    Love, faith and hope
    Of these three
    Hope and faith keeps that fire burning
    Even when it is but a spark
    Until you wade past the waters
    That “pretend” to drown you
    In your damning requiem for a dream

    And BabyDoll smiles through the drudgery
    Sweet sacrifice trumps everything
    Her example is the triumph of the human spirit, right?
    Yet she was born to fulfill a purpose
    Her ‘magnum opus’ was complete
    When it was time to go
    But you’ll know and so will the world
    With that unforgettable smile
    It’s not your time yet, trust me…

    Requiem for a Dream: Definitely Maybe
    Man can be as great as he wants to be
    So said J.F Kennedy
    Bel-Canto is the key
    If not now, then soon
    Very soon

    A requiem for a dream, you might say
    But do I care?
    Like I always have
    And I always will
    What you think is what you think?
    I like to form my own opinion, you know
    Have a nice day, really
    (Or should I say, go f*** yourself, if I have to be honest)

    Quitters Never Win, or so they say…
    But of course, in being a realist
    This so-called requiem for a dream
    Will remain so
    Unless the quitter in me wins
    And the winner in me quits

    Requiem for a dream
    A safe haven for naysayers
    Positivity is but too much
    So do what you can
    In that ‘definitely maybe’ manner
    What the hell?
    You’ve quit
    Before you’ve even begun…

      Here is where you are wrong. I have not quit. I have simply recognized the extensively documented historical fact that nothing will change significantly through the political process. Go f*** myself? I would be doing that by voting against my beliefs and principles. I will NEVER betray my principles by “sucking it up” and voting for the “lesser of two evils”. We have compromised our principles long enough, and I’ll be damned if I’ll do it any longer.

      I have not given up. In fact, I have taken a stand. I refuse to abide by criminal behavior, I will not lend my hand to it by choking down the dry heaves and voting for an avowed socialist who has no problem running roughshod over our NATURAL rights, much less our Constitutional rights.

      I will not bend. I will not capitulate. I will not compromise. I will defend my Freedom at all cost. I WILL NOT grant my consent to be governed by a criminal cabal which only seeks to take my Freedom away, and rob me blind. Voting conveys consent. When there is no one worth voting for, why would I toss my Liberty away for the “lesser of two evils”? That makes no sense. That only serves to (hopefully) preserve what little property I have left, at a cost far greater than that property’s worth. For nothing do I value more than Liberty. It matters not which tyrant is (s)elected, both wish to restrain and rob me “for the greater good”. Well there is no “greater good” than me and mine. Will Twitt Obamney end Socialist Security? No. Will he repeal oppressive weapons regulations? No. Will he disband the Testicle Squeezer ASSociation? No. Will he disband the Department of Homoland Securetitty? No. Will he recall all the military grade weaponry given to local “law enforcement”? No. Will he remove the requirement for passports to travel to Mexico or Canada? Or the Bahamas? Or anywhere else for that matter? No. Will he repeal Obammycare? Maybe, but he’ll replace it with his own version which he implemented in Taxachussettes. You know, the one which was the template for Obammycare. I could go on….

      Twitt Obamney is just another stooge who is controlled by corporate interests, who will do nothing to dismantle the federal leviathan which We the Dumbass People have allowed to infest our country due to laziness and complacency. So long as the unicorns keep shitting rainbows from sea to shining sea and the welfare mob keeps getting their food stamps. So long as the (dwindling) middle class can still get screwed by leasing a Lexus to park in front of their McMansion, and can screw their employees who make their monthly payments for them.

      So long as We the People choose to be subservient to a system which has been bastardized to suck the marrow from our bones, we will never know Freedom. And I will not be part of it. Call me when you’re ready to take it back. The ballot box does not contain Freedom any more. Freedom is inside you, me, and everyone. I have seized my Freedom. I don’t need no God damned government to “give” it to me what is my birth right. Now does that sound like a “quitter”? I think not. Sounds to me like like a fighter. And fight I shall. No man has dominion over me, nor will I grant it by “voting”. I can take care of me and mine; don’t want or need any “help” from They can kiss my ass. People who think like me are our ONLY chance. I think like Patrick Henry. Benjamin Franklin. Thomas Jefferson. Paul Revere…

        “Here is where you are wrong. I have not quit.”

        I realize you haven’t. None of us has. I will not attempt to challenge you. There is no need. We are not on different pages. Unlike so many, lately, appear to be.

        Respectfully, 🙂

    A few questions.

    Does it make any difference whether massa holds the whip with his right hand or left hand? Do Republican whips sting less than Democrat whips?

    If one politician promises he is 73% evil and another one promises to be 71% evil, does choosing the lesser of two evils really matter? Could you trust that politician to hold to his 71%? And if the 56%-evil L-candidate promises he’ll allow you to smoke a little weed behind the barn on square-dance nights, is he really any better?

    Is there much difference between a Marxist Extremist, a Corporate Extremist, a Global Warming Extremist, or a [fill in the blank] Extremist? Would you feel safe in a roomful of extremists of any stripe?

    What if your vote didn’t “empower” you, but instead was an admission of your powerlessness? Would you still think voting important?

    Are matters of right and wrong, or quantity of evil, best judged by majority vote? If you vote, and your horse loses, do you have to accept the result? Do you say, “By golly, I must have erred. The majority is never wrong.”

    Imagine that shining day when literacy dawns on America:

    “The next thing you know they’ll start listening very carefully to the words and sentences of the politicians, and they’ll decide that there isn’t one of them worth voting for anywhere on the ballot. There’s no knowing where this will end. The day will come when a President is elected only because those few feebleminded citizens who still vote just happened to bump up against his lever more often than they bumped up against the other guy’s lever. A President, of course, doesn’t care how he gets elected, but he might lose clout among world leaders when they remind him that he owes his high office to the random twitchings of thirty-seven imbeciles. That will be the end of network election coverage as we know it.”

      Not from the slave’s perspective. We are not slaves.

      Are matters of right and wrong, or quantity of evil, best judged by majority vote? If you vote, and your horse loses, do you have to accept the result? Do you say, “By golly, I must have erred. The majority is never wrong.”

      Part of what you describe applies to a Democracy. That which I, too, refuse to accept. The fact that the majority is too often wrong is one point of fact. However, if you mean that I should not accept the results of a fair election, then I disagree. Quite the contrary. At least for so long as I choose to be a part of the society and not returned to my natural state, I must accept.

      Imagine that shining day when literacy dawns on America.

      Do you suppose we have ever been there, or do you expect that it is even possible?

    There is merit in what each of you are saying in my opinion, however, I disagree with the premise that doing nothing somehow fixes the problem. Doing nothing accomplishes nothing, it always has.

    The bottom line is this, like it or not. People today are much different than folks 235 years ago. They were in the same situation we are in today and what did they do about it?! What will we do about it today? Not a damn thing collectively because a majority of the people in this country will start out the door as the Minute Men did all those years ago and turn around when they get to the gate and go sit on the porch.

    This struggle will be solely an individual basis across this country as it has been in a few situations in the past. (Waco for example) That is where we will separate the men from the boys…who will really walk through that gate? And who is going to knuckle under and lick the boots of their oppressors?

      Well said. I know there are some who will sit on the porch, some who will tire on the way to the gate, and those who will not even get off of the keyboard. Most fit into the latter. I know where you stand, and it ain’t sitting around some campfire slurping down beer. We must either return to our natural state, or participate in our common fate. People don’t know that the last thing they want, or could survive, is the former.

      Yep. Lead yourself, or be led over a cliff. The political “cure” is not going to happen. Yep, I’m a contrary sumbitch, but I’m a Free sumbitch. I drink no Koolaide, left, right, or otherwise. I see Twitt Obamney for the shyster he is, just like the last Repugnicunts that slithered in before him. Dimocraps, they are no different. Sides of the same coin. I have the same words for both, and they rhyme with “truck shoe:…

      October 26, 2012 at 2:47 pm

      You’re right. Mary won’t be droppin in to save us. I will treat those whom I know did not vote, the same as those whom I know voted for Obama and the Democrats. There is no difference. When they come looking (and they will) for help, they will be dispatched in the same manner. Every man, woman, and child among them. You can’t have it both ways. A no vote is a vote.

      • Craig Cavanaugh

        October 26, 2012 at 2:56 pm

        Okay fine. I will write in Ron Paul. Is that still a vote for Obammy? Some would say so. I will not vote for Twitt Obamney. You are right, a no vote is a vote. A vote not to be governed by a criminal cabal. Oh, and I will not be looking for help.

        “…those whom I know did not vote … will be dispatched … every man, woman, and child among them.”

        You’d shoot women and children for failing to vote?


        • The Soffitrat

          October 26, 2012 at 7:06 pm

          Dispatch has many meanings, but sending away is crux of it. Under normal circumstances? No. But, if they fit into the category we described (and caused or allowed to cause a collapse), for which they are known? I will then not feed or water them. However, under certain (more dire) circumstances, if they are known democrats, and present a weapon (or accompany someone who is) that is not barrel down? Yes. To just kill their man (which is what you would do?) would amount to the same thing. We might decide to keep the children. Depending on age, sex, and needs of the community.

    Even a vote for Paul is representative. If only to display displeasure, or to send a message. It all counts. I did not infer that you would be. …looking for help. But, as you know, many will be. As we move forward, I just think it best to do so with a clear conscience. It’s the same principle as the “high moral ground” argument that we have all (by now) heard about.

    • Craig Cavanaugh

      October 26, 2012 at 3:18 pm

      My conscience will be clear. My message is here for the world to see. Not gonna waste my time “voting”. Yes, many will be looking for help as the illusion fails and they come to realize just how naive they’ve been. Sad stuff, especially when the truth is out there for those not too lazy to seek it. Oh, and it is that “moral high ground” which will not let me participate in a farce. Just sayin’… But to each his own I say. We all have to do what our heart and our mind tells us is right.

        October 26, 2012 at 3:24 pm

        See? In the end, we DO agree! Funny thing is, we are on the same team, the same page. We might well be in the same trench before this thing is over. I wish that all those of the Patriot movement could do likewise. Our disagreements are so minor. So petty. Especially when compared with the issues we all face.
