The Problem with the Republican Party

November 18, 2008

So, I was taking a shower a couple days ago, when I had an epiphany (it’s where I always do all my great thinking).  I came up with this phrase: “A tax-and-spend liberal is better than a tax-cut-and-spend conservative.  At least the liberal can balance the budget.”

And this is a principle that the Republican Party (or at least a large part of its members) have forgotten.  The Bush Tax Cuts do NOTHING for us, unless you CUT SPENDING as well!  In fact, if we are going to keep up our spending habits, we need to RAISE taxes.

So should we raise taxes?  Absolutely NOT!  What we should focus on doing is cutting our spending.  Start with earmarks.  Eliminate them altogether.  Then move on to the welfare system.  Reform the welfare system.  And reform the school system.  There’s plenty of money in Michigan, worked around the right way, so that we can pay teachers decent wages and not have to continue closing down schools in Detroit.

Until the Republican Party begins to understand basic business principles (can’t have your expenditures higher than your income), they will continue to suffer election after election.  We need to return to our fiscally responsible principles.  Cut taxes.  Cut spending.  That right there will raise the quality of life for all Americans.

San Francisco Movement to Dedicate the George W. Bush Sewage Plant Chooses the Motto, “Out of Many Anus”

April 4, 2008

A movement calling itself the Presidential Memorial Commisison of San Francisco is pushing to rename the Oceanside Wastewater Treatment Facility, the George W. Bush Sewage Plant.

Here’s an exceprt from the website (www.presidentialmemorial.org):

An Enduring Legacy

As we near the end of George W Bush’s presidency, we think it is important to select a fitting monument to this president’s work. On matters ranging from foreign relations to fiscal and environmental stewardship, no other president in American history has accomplished so much in such a short time. To honor George W Bush for his eight years of honorable public service, the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is sponsoring a ballot initiative this November in San Francisco. It reads…

“Should the City and County of San Francisco rename the Oceanside Wastewater Treatment Facility the George W. Bush Sewage Plant?”

We believe this is an appropriate honor for a truly unique president. If you think so too, join this grassroots movement to rename this important and iconic landmark in his honor.

 

So, this is interesting, and in my opinion, very unpatriotic.  I don’t care if you want to criticize the President.  I don’t care if you want to name a sewage treatment plant after him, but at the point that you change the MOTTO OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA to “E PLURIBUS ANUS,” “OUT OF MANY ANUS,” I have a problem with that.  And why is there no outrage over this?  If I put up a picture of 2 gay guys smiling together with the phrase “out of many anus” I’m sure that I would have people screaming and hollering at me, and I’m only pointing out the simple fact that homosexuals can’t engage in proper sexual intercourse.  Here, you have a bunch of liberals changing the national motto like nothing else.

And look at their “Bord of Directors”:

Board of Directors
T. Wayne Pickering
Chairman

Peaches Christ
Entertainer, Gender Illusionist

Chicken John
Showman, Mayoral Candidate

Tangie Rumors
Retired Sex Worker

Sister Porn Again
Businessman

Sister Selma Soul
Community Organizer

 

I hope that this ballot initiative fails. I wouldn’t have as much of a problem with it if they weren’t dishonoring the whole nation (I’d still think it’s ridiculous, but it is free speech), but the fact that they are using the nation’s motto and changing it to a mockery is ridiculous and un-American.

Limbaugh Tells Texas & Ohio Republicans to Vote for Clinton

March 1, 2008

During a recent broadcast of his radio show, Rush Limbaugh the Great responded to an article in a Texas newspaper with the headline “Many Republicans to vote for Obama.”  Limbaugh responded by saying:

I understand I’ve got a big challenge here to try to get Republicans to change their minds on this and vote for Hillary to keep her in the race, to keep that party at war with itself…

It’s clear that Republicans in Texas have been listening to this program where we have advised Republicans to pimp themselves for a day and go vote in the Democrat primary … I just think, at this stage, the longer Hillary can stay in this, the better for us.

I know I’m fighting an uphill battle … vote for Hillary to keep this campaign going, this “uncivil war.”

Remember what this is, this is about us winning. You have to understand, it’s not about Hillary winning; It’s about us winning. It’s about our party winning. It’s about those people losing. They’ve got some problems in the Democratic Party. It’s not all sweetness and light over there…

If Hillary loses this thing, all of that’s going to come to a screeching halt. We want all the disruption in that party as possible. It’s about us winning.

I think that if Limbaugh is successful, this will help out the Republicans come November, but I don’t think it is necessary. I think the Democrats (especially Clinton) have fallen into infighting WAY to much.

IF(and that’s a HUGE if, because I don’t think it will happen) Clinton does win the nomination, the Democrats are done.  She will lose the independents and the young voters that Obama has attracted.  He’s almost like the Ron Paul for the Democrats (except he also attracted a large part of the party base) – he’s winning hugely with the independents, young people, and those who don’t normally vote (which is ironic, because he’s more liberal than Clinton, except on health care – where at least he isn’t forcing his plan on EVERYBODY).

This also teaches the Democrats a lesson.  They cross party lines for our primaries all the time (a lot of people did it in Michigan and a lot voted for Giuliani – the most liberal candidate we had).  They did it in 2000 with McCain.  This is why I think we need closed primaries (sure it goes against Democracy, but PARTY primaries are about what the party wants, NOT democracy.  If you don’t like it – go start your OWN party!) to keep the parties out of each other’s primaries.

But if Limbaugh’s drive is successful, I’ll be a very happy man today (Rob, if you’re reading this, that was a straight shot out to you).
