“The time is now and near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves. . . . Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us the only choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.” — George Washington, 1776
I am probably going to get in trouble with some “party” people with this posting, but I am personally confused by the actions of so called conservatives and their reasoning for doing what they are doing and I quite frankly don’t care if what I am about to say upsets anyone.
I want to state up front I am a former Democrat – turned Republican in the Nixon/McGovern election mostly because McGovern wanted to close a large number of military bases and I was a military wife at the time.
I also want to state I don’t care if the President of the United States is Black, White or polka dot – I want him/her to be a legal American citizen and be able and willing to prove it, a Patriot who loves this country and has ethical ideas for the country – not spend their time causing division between Americans and believes in the Constitution.
How dare anyone from within the Republican Party or anywhere else think they have the right to take my VOTE or anyone else’s vote for Donald Trump away from us because “THEY” don’t like him as the candidate? You had a vote – your candidates lost!
So you wanted Cruz, another Obama mimic who is not a legal citizen of this country and a proven liar up front by saying he is. Just what is it about Trump that is scaring the elites so much?
Americans fought and died to give this country a Constitution so fair and right it has stood its ground for 240 years.
Not once, but five times the Constitution gives us the right to vote in the 15th, 19th, 24th and 26th Amendments using the same powerful language in each one – “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged . . . .”
We, the American citizens of this country, not illegals, foreign born, but true American citizens were blessed with the Constitution and it gave me and those like me the right to elect those who now hold office – not change the rules at a convention making our votes not count. How dare you!
You believe you can walk, run or fly into Cleveland and destroy our rights by changing some rules so that it gives you what you want and takes away our right to make our own decisions. Just who the H _ _ _ do you people think you are?
The Republican Party gave us Romney in 2012 who then paraded around like he was the best conservative in the world and yet refused to present to the public information he had on hand regarding the fraud of that election and just who and what Obama and his cronies were.
Now this same man Romney comes out of his hole in 2016 to tell us we don’t know what we are doing by supporting Trump and telling us he is going to aid in making plans for the Republican convention to literally take our votes away from us and make the Presidential decision for us. Romney is part of the problem in this country.
Newt Gingrich and Bill Bennett – give me a break. Stealing around Trump like the slithering snakes they are. Like a dog in heat and all the while professed globalist and One World Government dogs. Your large feet are tripping over your enormous egos!
How many times does the so called “voting” Conservative side of the Republican Party have to get stabbed in the back before they bleed out? Where is the outrage? When Obummer’s multi police forces come slamming through your doors in the dark hallows of a cold night, what are you going to do? “Ghee, I didn’t think it was that bad.” “I should have listened and paid better attention.” “I never thought my own party would set me and my family up for a kill like this” as you are sitting in a FEMA camp somewhere knowing everything you have worked for all your life and your precious country has just raised the flag of a New World Order operating under Communist guidelines!
You are out there walking around scratching your head asking “what just happened again?” Those currently elected sitting in Washington, taking trips from the likes of Gulen to Turkey, playing “kissy face” with any lobbyist who fill their wallets for a vote (do I have to remind you the millions in some cases our legislators were paid to vote yes on the TPA?) – every one of these cheating, corrupt elected’s need to be removed from office in Nov 2016. They ought to lose their pensions too.
You are all screaming “foul” when it comes to Hillary Clinton” but what about our own PARTY? Most of them crooked as the day is long! Why do you continually put them back into office? Some of their actions seem small and insignificant, but let’s take Ron DeSantis R-FL who supported Daniel Webster for House leader to replace Boehner and at the last minute switched and voted for Ryan. And this is a man who says he is a Conservative and he chose to vote for Paul Ryan who slams the American people time and time again and most certainly got paid over $2 million for his TPA vote.
Paul Ryan is married to a life-long flag waving Democratic lobbyist who represents some of the biggest names in the drug and oil industries; Blue Cross/Blue Shield, UPS, Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, and Marathon Oil through her employers PricewaterhouseCoopers and Williams & Jensen. I would venture to say this couple’s pillow talk is very interesting.
When, where and how did the Republican Party begin to change or have they always been in the background doing their own form of manipulation? For years they tried to portray themselves as the good guys, always voting for freedoms and the rights of the “under” guy. But were they really enemies all these years?
We know they no longer are Americans if they ever were – check out your history and look at the presidency of George H.B. Bush and Bill Clinton who worked together in conjunction to getting laws passed, set up and ready for George W. to move further on toward the One World Government. Bill Clinton will tell you he sees George H.W. as a “father” figure and Barbara loves having the Clinton’s around. Conservative, Christian Barbara Bush likes having Hillary Clinton around?
This past April “our former first lady” Laura Bush went so far as to state she would rather have Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump, saying she wants the next American president to be someone who cares about women of Afghanistan. Really? And does she really believe Hillary gives 2 hoots about those women any more than she really cares about anyone in this country? WAKE UP AMERICA!
And it was George W. who all of a sudden during the primaries stated he now hated Ted Cruz, but he was his glory boy in D.C. Why? Ted Cruz beating out his baby brother?
Former first lady Barbara Bush says she doesn’t understand how women can support Donald Trump in the presidential race over her son Jeb Bush. Do these Bush women really believe the women of America are that dumb as not to see through what has been happening in this country? Her son single handedly set out to destroy the education of our children by his full support of Common Core. And as to his statements claiming he was the best governor Florida ever had – just line Jeb up with Hillary and see how close he comes to her in corruption. It was Barbara’s baby boy who gave Hillary the “Liberty Medal”.
Do I believe the wives of these Bush men don’t know what they have been planning for years – NOT ON YOUR LIFE?
Legislation should be passed making it illegal with jail time if an elected congressman or woman serves on American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Why should a congressman who can’t seem to get his legislation passed, be a part of ALEC, working with businessmen behind closed doors to get the same legislation passed only under the financial influence of ALEC. ALEC believes CORPORATION’s have the “right to a VOTE and a VOICE”. They do but only as stand- alone individuals like us – one vote, not an additional vote as the member of a group or corporation.

POLITICAL PARTIES ETERNALLY DIVIDE THIS COUNTRY!
One of the most outstanding items in George Washington’s Farewell Addresswas he believed that our country would thrive but only if it stayed together and he believed political parties caused a non-repairable division. Addressing the quote at the top of this article, are you wanting to remain free or a slave to a One World Government, overseen by the United Nations with your rights stripped away?
As Americans we worked diligently in 2012 to get conservatives elected to congress. Now, since the 2012 election we find we have been abandoned by the Republican Party for “greener” pastures of money and power leaving a stronger path of division between all Americans. They are the “new” Democratic Party giving us “political correctness”!
In 1797 and tired of “partisan politics” George Washington left office as to not run for a third term. He was afraid if he died in office history would believe he believed in a president’s right to serve for life and that was not the case. Washington was a very smart, respectful and loving man. He left behind words Americans today should take heed to as they were said for you to protect yourself from tyranny:
• The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all. Refutes the motives of a CON V.
• In a country as extensive as ours, a government of as much vigor as is consistent with the perfect security of liberty is indispensable. Liberty itself will find in such a government, with powers properly distributed and adjusted, its surest guardian. (Those who stand ready with new Constitutions, stating the current one is antiquated and out of date is aimed at giving themselves more power and less for the people because they want to be rulers and totally in charge.)
George Washington was a very smart man with the wisdom, truth and predictions his words have carried for 237 years. He warned us about the vengeful practices of political parties with their ego’s being the ruling force, not once but several times. His words are now coming true!
He warned: “The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism.”
Or better still, “However political parties may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
I can see both parties, entrenched in their own ego’s blaming each other for the state of affairs today when both have failed the American people in both words and deeds, attempting to continually pit one race or religious group against another. In Washington’s concern regarding political party mischief he also warned of the danger in accumulating DEBT. Both parties have us entrenched in over $19 TRILLION in debt with no answer as to how to get rid of it. Spending, spending, spending is their answer!
Why is it you show outrage at their disrespect and corruption but then turn around and re-elect them? Neither party listens to the people – it is the people who are to be running America through their elected’s, not the elected’s making the decisions for “pay for play” from lobbyists. It is the DUTY of Americans to VET and VOTE the person – not who a political party or corporation is pushing.
It is called playing dog – “lie down, roll over and shut up”
Dec 4, 2013, a day after learning he was yanked from the Agriculture Committee, Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp lit into GOP leaders charging that conservative Republicans are punished for not toeing Speaker John Boehner’s line. “No good deed goes unpunished,” Huelskamp said. “We were not notified about what might occur but it confirms in my mind the deepest suspicions that most Americans have about Washington D.C: it’s petty, it’s vindictive, and if you have conservative principles you will be punished.”
Huelskamp warned when the Republican freshman class of 2010 came in, they were told they had to fundraise for the “party” and notify leadership how they would vote but could otherwise “vote their conscience and their district.” (Surprised?) Huelskamp went further in stating his removal was “not about principle, it was about obedience.”
It is time for all Americans with God, the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights to stand up, hold hands and say “NO MORE”. We are one Nation with different people who wish for peace over wars, love over hate, and unity over division.
Dump the division caused by political parties and start supporting the man or woman who willingly takes their own money – not big business PARTY money – to run for office. The “parties” go out of their way to squash an everyday citizen from running because of the money big business flows through their coffers.
What is your vision of “the American way”?
