Questions and Answers I couldn't really settle on any one thing to be upset about this week. There is just so much to be concerned about as we move further and further into the election cycle, as well as this economic disaster that the Left and their tame team media keep trying to tell us is a recovery.
I have a lot of questions and I don't feel I am getting many adequate answers, especially from Obama and his cohorts. I don't especially care for their song-n-dance routine. Obama goes to fundraisers and either sings or listens to entertainers, while his various spokespersons dance around to avoid giving direct answers to uncomfortable questions about what are the realities of life here in America under this failed presidency.
I wonder why the Left, and seemingly the Obama administration in particular, is so against fossil fuel? They tout their electric cars, apparently overlooking the fact that much of the electricity in America comes from coal plants. Much of the rest of it is generated by the use of another precious resource: water. Their precious wind farms and solar panels provide very little of the power necessary to run their over-priced and inefficient electric cars. So, why the continuing hatred of very much needed fossil fuels?
I also wonder about the truth of the Obama energy experts saying we need to become more independent of foreign oil. They say this, yet they encourage other countries to up production to ship to America, even give money to countries to advance their drilling programs, then turn around and do everything possible to stifle oil production here at home. Does this make any sense? It certainly doesn't to me. Why is it okay for other countries to drill and expand their oil programs, but not okay for Americans to do the same? Wouldn't it make sense for us to use our abundant natural resources to save money, build businesses, and provide jobs? Are they just talking out of both sides of their mouths and hoping we won't notice the disconnect? Or, are they just flat out lying and don't really care that we find them out?
Obama and his spokespeople say the economy is improving, yet I look around and see no real signs of it. Prices are rising, people are losing jobs or still unemployed, businesses are failing, foreclosures are happening, in short, it is all pretty dismal and shows no signs of improving any time soon. Particularly not under the lack of leadership Obama and the Democrat controlled Senate are providing. Again, I have to ask myself, are they lying to us or just too stupid to see the reality of life as the common folk are living it? I kinda feel it may be a combination of the two. I think they do so much spinning of facts that they really can't see reality anymore for what it is. And, I think they are all so distanced from life as most folks know it that they don't realize that just saying things are getting better doesn't make it so.
All these questions and lack of answers do lead me to one more . . . and, I totally know the answer to this one, without having to ask anyone else! The question is: do I want four more years under Obama? And, the answer is a resounding NO!!! I will vote for anyone but Obama. I have asked myself that old Reagan question about whether I am better off now than I was four years ago and the answer is definitely, "NO NO NO".
I ask all y'all to look around and ask yourselves if you think we are better off now than we were before Obama. If the answer is no, what are we going to do about it? I say we coalesce behind whichever candidate ultimately ends up as the GOP nominee, as well as the entire GOP tickets in our respective areas, and we take back the White House and Senate, hang onto Congress, take as many states and communities as possible, then see if we can't get a little common sense back into government in America!
Let's not get bogged down in unimportant details about who is more conservative in the GOP. Let's face it; almost any GOP choice is going to be an improvement over almost any Democrat. I say we first get GOP control, and then we worry about making the less conservative among us toe the party line. Straight ticket Republican seems to be the answer to me. Make it as red an America as possible. With as little blue as possible and not even all that much purple. Any questions?
