This is going to my hard core Republican friends. Why are you still supporting Romney?

1) You know he is not going to win.
2) You know as the election heats up, his Bain Capital experience will make Republicans untouchable for decades.
3) You can’t pin down where Romney stands on anything.
4) He tied his dog to a car.
5) He stands with black people and says “Who let the dogs out, woof, woof.”

Most of you are telling me, “I certainly can’t vote for Obama. I guess I’m not voting for President this time.”

Let’s say, just for argument sakes there was a presidential candidate out there who says to have good government you need: …………………

1. Become reality driven. Don’t kid yourself or others.
Find out what’s what and base your decisions and actions
on that.

2. Always be honest and tell the truth. It’s extremely
difficult to do any damage to anybody when you are
willing to tell the truth–regardless of the
consequences.

3. Always do what’s right and fair. Remember, the more
you actually accomplish, the louder your critics become.
You’ve got to learn to ignore your critics. You’ve got to
continue to do what you think is right. You’ve got to
maintain your integrity.

4. Determine your goal, develop a plan to reach that
goal, and then act. Don’t procrastinate.

5. Make sure everybody who ought to know what you’re
doing knows what you’re doing. Communicate.

6. Don’t hesitate to deliver bad news. There is always
time to salvage things. There is always time to fix
things. Henry Kissinger said that anything that can be
revealed eventually should be revealed immediately.

7. Last, be willing to do whatever it takes to get your
job done. If you’ve got a job that you don’t love enough
to do what it takes to get your job done, then quit and
get one that you do love, and then make a difference.

Honesty. Integrity. Principal.

Sounds good so far. Let us say just for argument, he had chief executive experience. Let us say just or argument that he once ran a state, one of the fifty in this union. Let us say while governor, this is what he did…..

During his tenure, New Mexico experienced the longest period without a tax-increase in the state’s entire history.

1) He cut the rate of government growth in half,

2) Left the New Mexico state government with a budget surplus and 1000 fewer employees (without firing anyone),

3) Privatized half of the prisons in the state,

4) Brought a state-wide school voucher system to New Mexico.

5) Vetoed 750 bills (more than all the vetoes of the other 49 Governors in the country at that time, combined) with only 2 overrides, earning him the nickname Gary “Veto” Johnson.

6) In 1999, Johnson became the highest-ranking elected official in the United States to advocate the legalization of drugs.

7) Shifted Medicaid to managed care.

ISN’T THAT WHAT YOU WANT? ISN’T THAT WHAT WE NEED?

Can you not think of a better way to show your lack of enthusiasm over a wealthy capitalist buying his way to the top of your ticket, by voting for someone who has character, who does what you’ve always wanted, a doer, not a talker?

And to think…. you were simply just going to throw your vote away.

His name is Gary Johnson. He is the new party’s candidate for President.

Remember Republicans. It is your values that are important. If your party has given up and moved on from your values, don’t think you have to be loyal to the word…. “Republican”… What you have to be loyal too, is yourself. Always. Never lie to yourself.

You don’t need to waste your vote on Romney. You probably need to find more about this guy, Gary Johnson, and then throw your support behind him.

Don’t worry it is not one of the two parties on whose ticket he is running. Remember, at one point in time, the Republican Party was a once a third party too. One that went mainstream because of its core values, its principles resonated with everyday American People.

Not so fast… The repeal failed… In a state that is OVERWHELMINGLY Republican, the vote was not even close…..  211 to 116 to keep same sex marriage as the law of the land in New Hampshire…

It appears that the backlash against the trashy Rick Santorum,  is making waves in the Republican Party itself… Running away from Social Conservatism and embracing the party’s roots in Libertarianism, the Republican Party of New Hampshire, may have found a method to survive in the modern world……

Eliminate the Social Conservatives….  Get rid of every stupid, stinkin’ thing they stand for….. Quite a few social conservatives checked themselves into the local hospital emergency room, as the whopping defeat made itself known…..

What is probably the most fascinating aspect of this absolutely ridiculing and embarrassing defeat of social conservatism, is that the force to defeat it….. came from conservatism itself…..  This was not a win by liberals… This was a win by conservatives for every American’s right to live free from the scorn that Social Conservatives heap on everyone who doesn’t share their cultish view.

As Tea Party Republican Tammy Simmons correctly noted:  “I always say that my liberty ends, where your liberty begins.  …And if you’re a gay man wanting to marry another gay man, how does that impact me personally? You know,.. it doesn’t …”

“It’s not about whether I’m Catholic or whether or not the party platform says this or whether or not the Democrats were the ones who brought it in the first place. All of that’s really irrelevant.”   

Social Conservatives are irrelevant.

 “It’s great to have faith and it’s great to have religion, but that should dictate your life, not how somebody else lives their life.”

“The people that are supporting repeal want their personal religious views to be the law of the land. I hate to say it, but that’s really what it’s coming down to,”—  Tammy Simmons

Our founding fathers gave up everything,  fought,  and died to prevent that… Damned if we’re going to let these nuts tear up the Constitution… and take us back to the very Dark Ages of Enlightenment……

“We’ve got so many Republican state representatives that are opposed to this repeal effort. And it’s like the Republican Party’s getting back to its roots—values of individual freedom and liberty and equality. It’s been an exciting thing to see. I think that New Hampshire is going to be a model for the national Republican Party to see that it is okay for the Republicans to be inclusive of gays and lesbians and to be in favor of equal rights. It’s a new step forward for the party.”  Tyler Deaton

Finally, a Republican Party that is getting back to it’s roots… values of individual freedom and liberty and equality.

Currently, if you valued freedom at all, the only place you could find it, was when you had a government consisting of all Democrats,  and no  Republicans…….

Bain Capital; good? or bad?

Has anyone asked anyone from these companies Bain has taken over?

Why, yes! They have…

Meet Senor Hayler… He ran a photo book shop for Bain in South Carolina.

“They’re somewhat cutthroat. I’ve worked for a lot of managers over my years but they were almost an angry bunch….They were yellers. They were screamers. There were just huge demands.”

So how does Bain achieve its turnaround profits?

“One of their ways to cut costs was not to pay bills,” said Hayler, who was ultimately fired and moved to North Carolina. “There were raw materials we couldn’t get because they hadn’t paid for the last bunch….A lot of stuff was coming in C.O.D. [cash on delivery]. I had to meet people on the loading dock with petty cash. It had deteriorated in my view to a very sad operation.”

“Bain was big on consultants. I remember entertaining a lot of consultants who would come in, create stacks of paper, and leave.”

Managers from Bain sent Hayler, a vice president for manufacturing at Holson Burnes, to run the new Gaffney factory soon after it opened. He was under orders to cut the unit costs of production, either by ramping up volume or by reducing labor costs.

“My job was to get rid of some people down there — either make it more productive or cut labor,” Hayler said.

A few months later, according to Hayler, Bain abruptly cut off the year’s severance pay he was entitled to under his contract. “They said I’d had enough time to look for a new job,” he said, leading him to sue and eventually win a settlement.

To the uninitiated, this may sound horribly immoral. However, that is how most business is done in America… Bills don’t get paid, people get cut for no reason, and contracts don’t get fulfilled until a court of law requires them to… I would say 99% of America’s business is handled that way. It is our dirty little secret.

That may be a way to run a business, where if you get fired, you can always go to another… But, America seriously needs to understand what will happen to it, if it decides to be run the way of Bain Capital Enterprises…..

It may seem nice for a couple of hours, but the herpes last forever…….

Gotta be brief.

We learned all Republicans are not what Fairfax VA wants them to be. They are a diverse group of people bound together by ideals.

We learned more about Romney. That he and his ilk like Bain Capital are responsible for the economic woes we now face.

We learned that unlimited money is wasted on well informed voters. Romney spent more and won, but usually the Massachusetts candidate always wins in New Hampshire… After all metropolitan Boston, the capital of Massachusetts, is New Hampshire’s largest city…

We learned Huntsman really isn’t the dufus he was made out to be on all previous debates and media commentary.

We learned that Ron Paul, is probably too old to be president, even though we may admire his libertarian streak that resonates through every American.

We learned that Iowa was just a game, with big money alligning itself behind one candidate, then another, then another, then another, then another, and Rick Santorum now has just faded away….

We learned New Hampshire is not as flakey conservative (meaning they are more informed than most) as large parts of the rest of the nation.

We learned that often the wrong people get put in as front runners. Buddy Roemer gets a standing ovation in Nashau, among supporters of all the other candidates… (It was the best talk of the campaign so far)… Yet, the only Republican runner who has been a reelected governor, and reelected Congressman, is not allowed on stage at any debates.

You put a two-timing philanderer Pizza mogul as the prime presidential candidate, but shut out a 4 term Republican Congressman who was also a 2 term Republican governor? One who resurrected a state that was as bad off and as corrupt, as is Washington now? C’mon.. This election process is not natural.. it is staged. It is a Selection Process, not an election process……

We learned already that Citizens United will have to be overturned. It is now apparent we won’t have any fair elections until both corporations and the wealthy can no longer funnel enormous wealth into election cycles.

And most importantly, we learned the Republicans have no ideas on how to get us out of the mess… Since summer, not one good idea to get American jobs back into high gear, has come out in any campaign.. Instead we have gotten piped in music decrying who is the most conservative…

How will they get jobs roaring again?
