NOTHING CHANGES IF NOTHING CHANGES
Change- the word is used in every presidential campaign speech, by every candidate. Polls show voters want “change.” So just what change can we expect if any of the so-called ‘front-runners’ of either ‘Big Box’ party get elected?
Assume for a moment voters are actually able to have their votes tabulated accurately. However, if the recent New Hampshire primary is any indication, vote fraud will continue in upcoming primaries as well as the general election in November.
Who will bring us the so-called “change” candidates and voters talk about?
Will it be New Hampshire primary “winner” AZ. Senator John McCain? When it comes to the issue on everyone’s mind- illegal immigration- would the good senator from the state suffering the most from the horrendous effects of open borders deliver us from evil? No. This headline in The Washington Times explains why:
The article reports: “An immigration alliance with Democratic Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts is damaging Arizona Sen. John McCain…among conservative Republicans.” The report goes on to quote Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo:
Voters pining for “change” on the illegal invasion front would not see anything even approaching change from the policies of the current “conservative” occupying the White House. McCain promises more of what we’ve gotten from a (Republican) president who’s kept the borders wide open, allowed US Border Patrol agents to rot in federal prison for what will amount to more than 20 years between them and who is actively working to complete a merger of our country with Mexico (www.spp.gov).
Maybe those who voted for McCain in New Hampshire were drawn to his ‘hero’ persona. After all, unlike the president now in office, McCain actually showed up for duty and even spent time as a prisoner of war.
That should make such voters wonder why the “heroic” John- ‘let’s- bomb- every- country- just- because –we- can’ McCain has been a central figure in an ongoing cover up of forgotten American prisoners of war. McCain has fought tooth and nail to keep documents about American prisoners of war and those missing in action in Vietnam under wraps. Documents that should have been declassified decades ago have remained hidden.
This has perplexed those who wonder what McCain knows and why he’s been assisting in covering it up.
On the other hand, perhaps “conservative” voters will settle on former Baptist minister, Arkansas governor and Iowa caucus winner Mike Huckabee.
A reader commenting on my recent article Ditch The Preacher Man wrote, “I, being a Christian who is a Southern Baptist, also note with shame the other Southern Baptists (note I did not say Christians), who have occupied the White House: Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and VP Al Gore. This serves as a warning to me when looking at Mike Huckabee. That he is a preacher means nothing.” The reader went on to remind me that former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee named Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations, as hisforeign policy advisor. Huckabee was endorsed by the NEA and backed anti-homeschooling legislation while he was governor.
Huckabee’s campaign manager recently boasted of the Iowa “win” despite the fact the campaign had barely $2 million on hand. Rudy Giuliani’s campaign also appears to be strapped for a buck. Reports show staffers are being asked to “voluntarily” forego paychecks this month. Contrast that with the roughly $28 million the Ron Paul campaign has raised, mostly from individuals giving $50.00 or less. Ron Paul raised more than any Republican candidate in the fourth quarter. Donations now total close to three quarters of a million dollars in just the first few weeks of the first quarter. These donations pour in despite the media blackout on the ten- term congressman from Texas who promises to deliver the real change this country so desperately needs.
If it is genuine change Americans want, Huckabee won’t deliver. We could reasonably expect the status quo to continue (especially on the issue of illegal immigration) if he were elected.
Take a look at this video of Mike Huckabee shot just 1 month ago on December 9, 2007. Huckabee mentions one teensy-weensy detail of his immigration “reform” plan you will not find on his website under “Immigration.”
Under his plan illegals could take a day off from their American jobs, leave their kids in American schools and lock the doors of their American (Section VIII) housing, saunter back to Mexico and then return nevermore to be bothered with that messy issue of illegal immigration. Thanks, Mike, we’d then have another 20 million new “citizens,” new voters to boot!
There are still those who feel former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani should be president .Besides his political malfunctions while mayor, this is the same man who defended Purdue Pharmaceuticals against charges it knew its drug Oxycontin was highly addictive and oftentimes deadly. Guiliani has also sold out our country in the capacity of representing Cintra, the foreign corporation behind the construction of the Trans Texas Corridor, otherwise known as the NAFTA Superhighway.
Most disturbing is the obvious and documented “human error” that showed a “0” vote count for Ron Paul in the town of Sutton, during the New Hampshire primary. It turns out 31 votes for Paul "weren’t counted." Oops, there’s that human error selectively deciding who wins, who loses. And you thought voters did that. You can see for yourself exactly how the Diebold electronic voting machines like the ones used in the New Hampshire primary can and have been hacked into. A report aired on Lou Dobbs' show illustrates how in just 60 seconds these machines can be hacked.
In a Wall Street Journal opinion piece titled The 16 Year Itch, Michael Barone points out: “what we are seeing this year is an unusual preference for outside-the-system candidates with less top-level experience than voters usually want in a president…. voters get tired of the predictable results of their own collective decisions. The discontented voters in 1976 had, after all, elected Richard Nixon to two terms… They knew something about Nixon's weaknesses… and got what they might have expected. Even so, they were disgusted enough with the results that they elected a president who would not have been a plausible candidate in most election years.”
Barone says 2008 will be the continuation of a 16 year cycle during which he predicts:
In November, third parties like the Constitution Party will see that voters have left “major” parties for no other reason than both presidential candidates will look the same, even if they’re of different races and genders.
Unless, of course, that plucky 72 year from Texas who’s been married to the same woman for 50 years, never voted for a congressional pay raise or ever cast an un-constitutional vote gets the GOP nod. If he doesn’t, maybe all the Paulies out there can steer him to a party that’s just his style- the Constitution Party. Ask him to run for his life…. and the life of this Republic.
