Voting for the Corrupt: A Disturbing Reality

Voting for the Corrupt: A Disturbing Reality
        Over the last 12 months I have been hip-deep in politics. Reading, researching, and developing reasons for liking certain candidates as well as reasons for utterly despising others. I have never been a Democrat and I never will, but it is absolutely shocking that the Democratic Party would put their trust, money, and control into the hands of a woman as corrupt as Hillary Clinton.
 
        Barrack Obama was tailor-made by the DNC to be president, having rarely voted in favor or against controversial bills and usually abstaining, which gave him a transparent background that wouldn’t hurt him in the general election. Hillary Clinton while unjustifiably clinging to both his and her husband’s coat-tails, promises a third term of the Obama White House. President Obama isn’t stupid; he knows that Hillary despises him for ruining her chances in 2008 and she is just as much a deceiver to him as Donald Trump is to the RNC.
 
        Soldiers get busted down for mishandling one classified document, and she has mishandled hundreds while simultaneously allowing an active unsecured server to be used for government work. It’s not only ethically wrong and potentially illegal, it is downright embarrassing. People are laughing at us from Moscow to Beijing to Pyongyang. Patriots like myself do not take that lightly. 
 

“We do not take lightly the security of our country, the security of our embassies, or the security of our freedom – for so many have already paid the price protecting it.”

 
        Gone is the time for the purity of character that is so desired in a presumptive nominee. We need experience, but we also need courage, strength, and honor. None of the aforementioned virtues are found in the likes of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. Here am I alone and confused as to why the simple farmer and the educated doctor can come to the same conclusion that Trump is the answer. Here am I alone and confused as to why the progressive liberal is so satisfied in the likes of the socialist Sanders and the closet-socialist Clinton. The three of them have a combined age of over two hundred years. Trust me when I say that wisdom does not necessarily come with age.
 
        Clinton tries to appeal to the middle class and to the union families, but when was the last time she ever did a lick of hard work? Everything she has received has essentially been given to her. When was the last time she kept clicking on the refresh button hoping that it would magically place money in her checking account so she could buy diapers for her children? When was the last time that she actually cared about the things she speaks so fervently about? She claims to despise the Wall Street giants yet gladly puts the bag of cash they give her in the trunk of her car after a big speech.
 
        Trump tries to appeal to the everyday Americans who are fed up with illegal immigration, who are fed up with a lack of jobs, and who are fed up with the “establishment.” What does he know about how we feel? Here is a guy who has never been turned down for a loan at a bank. Here is a guy who was handed a check for one million dollars to start his career and life. He tries to claim what Mitt Romney did in 2012, about how being a business man will make him a great president. However, he has bankrupted four companies and failed at over a dozen business ventures. His ignorance to the issues, his lack of gentlemanly qualities, and his utter disdain for people that are not in line with his beliefs will be his downfall.

 

 
        We cry out for change, we cry out for the removal and disposal of all those who are corrupt and drunk with power, but here we are electing them to the highest office in the land. Here we are standing before Pontius Pilate and chanting with the crowd to crucify, even though we know it is wrong. Here we are throwing our country to the wolves who will eat it alive and leave the bones for the vultures. Let us no longer allow for this to happen, let us stand up and create such a disturbance, the likes that have not been seen since the removal of tyranny from America.

The Nuclear Option

    Let’s face it most Americans do not watch the news. Your average everyday American thinks that most of the big media outlets are biased (which honestly tends to be the case.) I write to you on this surprisingly chilly Sunday in order to inform you of a tragic vote that occurred last week in the United States Senate. The Senators referred to this specific vote as the “nuclear option” which is a very good description for this atomically explosive course of action.

    To explain this option in the easiest of terms, it gives the majority party ultimate reign in choosing their party’s favorite pick for open judicial positions. Thankfully as of now this option does not apply to Supreme Court nominations. By ultimate reign I merely mean that there only needs to be a majority vote to break a filibuster on a vote for confirming a presidential choice for federal judge positions. it used to be since the rules were written by Jefferson in the late 18th century that there had to be 60 votes to break a filibuster however thanks to the over zealous Senator Harry Reid who invoked the “nuclear option” it only takes a majority vote. (51 individuals
    We sadly as of this week have gone from a semi bi-partisan Senate to a one party majority when it comes to major judicial decisions. From now until the mid-term elections next year the President can essentially pick whatever liberal jackal that he chooses and then with the help of his Democrat Senate can shoe that individual right into his/her robes and onto the bench. This is a travesty that of course former Senator’s Obama and Biden would not stand for in 2005 when they were the minority. The GOP never actually attempted to do the nuclear option at that point, but I believe it was threatened. It is utter hypocrisy for the then Senators and now Executive branch heads to go back on their word. 
   Come to think of it why I am I surprised that they are supporting what they did not used to like? The good President has gone back on his words on multiple social and economical positions over the last decade alone. Whether from his stance on abortion, homosexual marriage, or his promises he has not kept with the affordable care act it is a terrible slippery slope for this 2nd term golden tongued politician.
   It is time to make drastic changes people! We need to find those individuals who will uphold the Constitution and the will OF THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE. This is not a 51 man government this a constitutional democracy it is our voice that counts not one specific party. Step up take charge, run for public office and make the little man’s voice heard. For how will our economy survive if the entrepreneurial spirit is crushed under oppressive medical taxes and social demoralization? 
   Have a blessed night and Happy Thanksgiving Week!

Terrorism Never Dies

I am angry and there is no denying the reason. People are so naive when it comes to the War on Terror. Osama Bin Laden is dead. Oh yippee! Let’s all be stupid and go get drunk and party our asses off! The war is over! WRONG! The war will never be over! Terrorism never dies! Radical Islam will never die!

Look folks, I am glad you are happy. If you lost someone in the 9/11 terrorist attacks than maybe you can feel a little better knowing that one of the masterminds behind it is dead. Peace of mind is the only recompense you will feel. Radical movements do not die when one of the leaders is killed, this only helps their cause. We are the infidel. We are the ones that are against their cause and that is why we are the infidel. If we kill one of theirs, no matter the rank, they retaliate. You can’t deny, and honestly you cant have an opinion about it unless you fight against it.

I chose my path in life, and I would much rather be on the walls shooting back at the enemy than be the scared little kid hiding under the bed. My girlfriend told me about all the college students that went out and got drunk and partied in the streets at the major universities because Osama died. Well, congratulations another excuse for you useless punks to go party! You have absolutely no concept as to what goes on over here in Afghanistan. You can speculate all you want and you can sit and debate in political science classes all you want. However, you will never understand how radical movements fight until you are over here fighting against them. Useless punks? Is that extreme? Do you feel like I insulted you if you fall under that category? Well, good I meant to insult you. I will be blunt because I feel like that is the only way that I can get my point across. In the Army a lot of people don’t understand an order unless it is cursed at them. So maybe you useless punks out there will only understand my anger if I yell at you.

Osama died, that doesn’t mean the war is over. Osama died, that doesn’t mean I am not going to get shot at anymore. Osama died, that doesn’t mean you can feel safe from terrorism. Do not act differently! Still be wary! They will strike again! Furthermore, Mr. Obama do not feel smug in your golden chair at your white house. This does not mean you will get re-elected. You did not pull the trigger, so don’t feel so high and mighty.

“It is not the critic that counts, not the man that points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of achievement, and who, at worse, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt (Paris 1910)
