(and Independents (including Libertarians))

There are hundreds of reasons.  The major one history…. This one is a small, insignificant one, but added to the heap of others it provides amazing clarity…

“Democrats are seen an more willing to work with the other party, by a margin of 52% to 27%.

Take ten random people and line them up….  5 of those now see Democrats as the more willing to work with the other party.  3 of those see Republicans as willing to work.  2 others are on the sidelines waiting to see what happens…..

Add those 2 to the Democrats 5, and you have a super majority that can pass legislation without worrying how it helps or hurts the other party.   But add those 2 to the Republican side, you at best, will get stalemate, at 5 vrs. 5…….

Meaning that there is only one way to go. Swear not to vote for a Republican, ever, and if you are a Conservative, go out and find a Conservative democrat.  Trust me, they are out there.  As one looks across the Democrat party today, one sees much complaining that Democrats from conservative districts, are too conservative….  

Voting for a Democrat will never hurt you or the nation.  Voting for a Republican does, every time they win an office….  Don’t feel sad; they brought it upon themselves…. 

(This is not some political spew; it is a thoughtful rendition of the reality faced by America today. If the roles were reversed, I’d be championing the other party.)

When the Allies began their assault on Fortress Europe, Eisenhower laid out the groundwork for all to see including the enemy. There would be no settlement of the conflict other than unconditional surrender.  It was acknowledged that completely wiping out Germany was our objective, and therefore any means necessary to do so, would be employed.

It also communicated to the Germans that once we began overpowering them, that they were eventually going to lose.

It is with that same foresight and passion that we must assail the biggest enemy America has faced since.  The Republican Tax Cuts.  These have crippled a nation once so economically strong it was going to pay off its entire debt by 2008.  These cuts have destroyed an entire class of people, the middle class, who now are scrambling to figure not just how to live well, but how to survive retirement until their death. Meanwhile, copious amounts of the middle class monies have been sucked up by the giant vacuum cleaners of insurance companies, medical billing companies, gas stations and utilities, all funneling into the pockets of 1% of our citizens.  The 99% are left with nothing.

The Republicans are in disarray.  Laura Ingram is calling for Mitt Romney to start swinging. Rush Limbaugh is yelling for Mitt Romney to get up off the mat.  Bill O’Reilly is screaming for Mitt to start punching.  Sean Hannity is foaming at the mouth for Romney to start hitting Obama.. It reminds you exactly of what happens in a ring, when one of the boxers begins to get groggy from getting hit too much, and at that point, you can tell it is just a matter of time.

Do not relax and wait for a split decision.  Now is the time to go in for the kill.  Left, left, left, stomach, right, left, stomach, left, left, right, right, right, and with every hit, remember every family that has lost its bread winner, with every hit, remember every family that has lost its house, with every hit, remember every family whose pension got stolen by corporate America, with ever hit, remember every tax dollar not paid by the obnoxiously wealthy, with every hit, remember it is what brings America back up off its knees.

All democrats are responsible.  This is not a battle between two candidates.  It is a battle for the soul of America.  On one hand you have all that is good:  hard work, family, health, retirement, owning ones own home, self respect, honor, and integrity, and on the other side, you have people who think they have the God given right to make themselves rich off your hard work and pay you nothing for your efforts.

It is a war between mankind, and bacteria.  Up to now the bacteria was winning.

Here is what every Democrat needs to do up to November 6… Whoever, wherever, however, whatever, whenever one of these infectious Republicans opens their mouth, you respond with these five words.

I’m…… sorry….. That’s …… Not…….. True……..

National Healthcare is unconstitutional and must be repealed/ I’m sorry, that’s not true.

We need to cut taxes, cutting taxes creates jobs/  I’m sorry, that is not true.

We need to nuke Iran today, not one city, the entire country/  I’m sorry, that is not true.

We need to invade Syria right now/  I’m sorry, that is not true.

We need to eliminate Social Security to balance the budget/  I’m sorry that is not true.

The Republicans have a working budget; the Democrats won’t pass it/  I’m sorry that is not true.

The Republicans worship God; the Democrats worship Satan/  I’m sorry, that is not true.

The Republicans could fix America if it just weren’t for Democrats/ I’m sorry, that is not true.

If billionaires pay one penny more in taxes, the entire solar system will explode/  I”m sorry, that is not true.

Grover Norquist came from God, he is not mortal/  I’m sorry, that is not true.

Giving poor people the right to healthcare is un-American/  I’m sorry, that is not true.

The only reason we have unemployment is because people are too lazy to work/ I’m sorry, that is not true.

As long as there is one Burger King job unfilled, there should be no unemployment insurance/ I’m sorry, that is not true.

I’m sick of people doing nothing and getting welfare, while billionaires do nothing and pay no taxes/  I’m sorry, that is not true.

That was fun, but you get the point.  Whether around the water cooler, at a bar, on the bus, in the church basement, with the old man, on Rick Jensens talk show, ……. it is time to stop the lying.   and when you do, others around you will say you are exactly right, and pile on that republican so he won’t know what to say next.

As Americans it is our duty to swear that, as citizens of the United States of America, it is our duty to keep up the fight until we get unconditional surrender in November….

Unconditional Surrender in November.

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.
