TALKING POINTS of Monday night…O’Reilly NAILED it

The Big Lie of the Political Campaign

“Millions of American voters believe the federal government should be required to provide things for the folks – education, healthcare, good jobs, financial security in old age, on and on. That runs counter to how America was established when our elected officials put their game plan into effect. Citizens would have basic freedoms to worship, vote, speak openly without being punished, assemble without interference, and pursue happiness within the framework of the law. Today the question of individual choice and the quest to succeed or fail on your own has almost been obliterated by politicians and judges who don’t respect the concept of competition and the struggle to prosper. They are deceiving the American people into believing that their success and well-being will be almost assured by a giant nanny state, which is in a nation of 320 million people. Politicians deceive because it is an easy way to seduce voters unhappy with their circumstances.

When Bernie Sanders tells Americans that the system is rigged against them, he destroys incentive. When Rand Paul tells Americans that they should be able to intoxicate themselves at will, he gives license to behavior that has destroyed people the world over. When Al Sharpton and his grievance lobby assert that black Americans are oppressed by a racist system bent on hurting them, he provides an excuse for a litany of apathetic and destructive behaviors. The fact is very few powerful people are willing to address vexing problems by telling the truth.

Here’s what the government owes us: Protection from foreign concerns who would harm us. Protection from criminals. A secure border whereby our immigration laws are enforced and respected. An infrastructure of mass transportation that is safe and efficient. Finally, it is the duty of those in power to foster a system that allows every American a truly fair shot at material and emotional success. That means schools with strong educational and disciplinary standards; subsidized benefits for the poor and infirm that are delivered responsibly with clear guidelines; also, protections in the workplace against companies that would violate labor laws and exploit powerless employees. We deserve honesty and responsible spending, not wasteful programs designed to secure votes.

The big problem is that millions of Americans are so poorly educated and irresponsible they simply cannot compete in the free marketplace. So what are the power-seekers going to do about that? It is beyond disgraceful that powerful people look away from the real problem. It is all about personal responsibility and motivation, and who is preaching that message?

The truth is that individual motivation is being destroyed by phony politicians seeking power by promising entitlements. Until that deep cultural flaw is exposed, until the phonies, race hustlers and corporate greed heads are called out, we will continue to see big lies spouted by deceivers and enabled by a gutless media. God help America!”…. Bravo, Bill O’Reilly

  1. I happened to catch this one on the air. O’Reilly certainly delivered the message with great passion.

  2. bocopro says:

    The fed’ral gummint’s job is really quite simple:

    1. Defense, interstate commerce, foreign relations
    2. Protection of citizens’ rights under the Constitution, such as copyright and foreign travel
    3. Providing (coining and printing) common currency for domestic commerce and foreign trade
    4. Providing universal standards for weights and measures
    5. Establishing subsidiary federal courts where needed
    6. Providing essential infrastructure including mail, roads, bridges, communication, and dams
    7. Collect revenue necessary for performance of those functions

    The Tenth Amendment clearly states that all functions and prerogatives not specifically given to the Feds in the Constitution remain under control of the people and/or the individual states.

    The Constitution’s Preamble says the federal government was established (and the Constitution was adopted) to “form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

    The problem arises when liberals interpret the phrases “promote the general Welfare” and “secure the Blessings” as some kind of mandate for establishing and operating a nanny state, which ain’t now and never wuz the intent of the source document.

    Good that O’Reilly hit that nail on the head, but I fear that it’ll fall on deaf ears ’cause too many parasites’ jobs exist solely to maintain and operate a cornucopia of benefits and an artesian spring of entitlements for that half of the society which has learned that dependency is SO much easier than self-reliance.

    This memo supports and augments one he has put out in the past on the breakdown of the nuclear black family by do-gooder Dems who fail to comprehend the unintended consequences of a permanent victim subculture.

    Again, I prefer to read his memos rather than watch his tirades. Same goes for Coulter. I don’t need the passion, or the snark, or the nonverbal “j’accuse” to get the point. Incidentally, here’s the archive of his talking-points memo (I’ve found that a few are missing for some reason) — no frills, no pics (unless you want to go to the clip archive), just basically uncluttered sentences written with a low fog index and comfortable for the 8th-grade reading level ( where really good newspapers are written):

  3. geeez2014 says:

    AOW…and he is SO RIGHT.
    \
    Bocopro, actually, it’s PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS that a lot of liberals use to couch every single freebie they can give away …everything is under THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS….

    And ya, I did find this under O’Reilly’s archives….
    I wish you could hear Coulter in person in a speech…self effacing, humble, sweet, funny; NOTHING like on TV. A friend of mine’s son is one of her best friends…he drives her around L.A. when she’s here making speeches, etc…travels with her to help her out….they adore her. She’s SO snarky on TV it makes me laugh because she’s so not that in person!

  4. geeez2014 says:

    And I’m not sure most newspapers write to an 8th grade level! I do believe that you’re right; they’ve sunken to a low we’d never have expected, but thank goodness for the really good columnists who are better than 8th grade level,. right?

  5. bocopro says:

    One of the guys in my e-mail chatgroup (retired cop) is a great fan of Coulter and posts links to her column. I truly admire her quickness, her willingness to do the research for her articles, and especially her wordsmithing. Just don’t like watchin her for some reason.

    The guy also posts columns by Kelleigh Nelson, who writes well but is completely in the tank for Trump and occasionally makes a fool of herself because of it.

    And I’m still a big fan of Michelle Malkin for her dedication to getting ALL the facts before shooting her mouth off. Years ago she was a straightforward, look-you-in-the-eye, fearless political analyst, but lately she’s been getting a bit full of herself. Still quite good at stringing data together in readable form and coming up with reasonable conclusions, but becoming more and more biased with time, hence less and less credible.

    Incidentally, Malkin can deliver a lengthy address with great passion, too . . . and she ain’t hard to look at neither.

  6. bocopro says:

    No, I taught writing . . . and especially business and technical writing . . . for about 15 years, and most texts will tell you that the most comfortable reading level is 7th to 8th grade, and that goes for well-educated people, too. Nobody likes a 50-word sentence with a bunch of big words, some of which you have to go look up before you feel confident with them.

    The most popular novels tend to be on the 7th-grade reading level. Specific articles in various print media sometimes get up to the 12th-grade reading level, but those are generally targetting an academic or legislative audience and filled with multisyllabicated jargon and sesquipedalian balderdash.

    In my tech- and business-writing courses I taught the Gunning Fog Index as a rule of thumb for students to gauge their own clarity and reader friendliness. Fleisch-Kincaid is o.k. too, but Gunning was easier for ’em.

    http://www.writing-information-and-tips.com/fog-index.html

  7. Kid says:

    I certainly agree with O’Reilly. I think putting ‘Provide for the common welfare’ in the Constitution was a big mistake.
    Anyway, we’re so far away from this concept in America it is hard for me to get passionate about. Wake me up when Anything starts making sense in this joint.

  8. John M. Berger says:

    I’m afraid that we have all too many, incapable of understanding these “POINTS”. If it was otherwise Shrillary and her ilk would not even be in the running, let alone with strikingly high numbers. I wonder if and when this will come to a head or will we just acquiesce to the corrupted name and dogma now known as “progressive”; a misnomer if there ever was one?

  9. FB says:

    That’s what I tell everybody. Bernie and the likes are liars. I’m now opening my mouth even in the most liberal environment saying that Bernie is lying. I give clear examples of what people pay in France for apparently free stuff.

  10. FB says:

    Plus looking at the debt of the US, it’s irresponsible to promise free stuff when the country is broke. I was looking at the list of debt / GDP ratio across the world and the US is on top of it.

  11. Imp says:

    I think it’s that last line in the Star Spangled Banner that confuses them too….” Land of the free…..and home of….”?

  12. bocopro says:

    Home of the “naive.” Not a good rhyme, but a near rhyme. Works better’n “ignernt,” too.

  13. geeez2014 says:

    bocopro, there are times when it bothers me when people say things like “becoming more and more biased , hence less and less credible.” Maybe it’s because they’re THAT certain their opinion is what’s best for the country. I DO get your point but I can’t write someone off for being sold on their viewpoint on a subject, you know?
    Anybody who’s read George Will knows it’s not all aimed at 7th grade level 🙂

    Kid, and “the pursuit of Happiness” is a BIG one for lefties….hiding everything we can POSSIBLY give them in freebies for that…

    JMB: SO TRUE. Who COULD vote for a Democrat (or at least what they’ve become the last 50 years) if they understood O’Reilly’s correct harangue?

    FB>..I’ve done that about Germany and ‘free’ healthcare for years….alerting Americans to the fact that FREE HEALTH CARE is quite expensive for Germans! People look SO surprised here…and I’ve said “That’s what’s coming here.” and….voila!
    GOod for you for SPEAKING UP!! Chapeau!!

    Imp “Brave?” Ya, when our little boys can’t even play with play guns? And they can’t label an enemy because that’s xenophobic? right? Oh, ya, we’re raising the BRAVE YOUNG MEN OF WORLD WAR 2, right? WRONG.

  14. geeez2014 says:

    Boy, every time I read that Talking Points Memo, it fires me up….he’s SO RIGHT on EVERY SINGLE LINE…and WHO IS PAYING ATTENTION OUT THERE?

    THIS is how a political candidate needs to talk…clearly, truthfully, because I BELIEVE most Americans get it somewhere deep within them…just don’t want to think about it….and a candidate who talks these things could come out ahead.

  15. Kid says:

    If anyone wants any more references to the tragedy of free healthcare, many can be found by googling the NHS system in England. For example

    The starting salary for a junior doctor is currently just under £23,000 a year, but with extra payments for things such as unsociable hours, this can quite easily top £30,000.
    http://www.bbc.com/news/health-34775980

    A ‘junior’ doctor can have as many as 14 years into their career.

    When I was there in 1990, the prices of everything from pizza to suits were double the USA price, so 23k to 30k equates to 11.5k to 15k.

    I recently read where the NHS has a Goal of being able to get a patient into a hospital within 18 weeks. Clearly they’re note doing that well now if this is their goal. Emergencies are reported to be handled quicker.

    And the percentage of people cured of cancers (because of the importance of timeliness) is incredibly higher in the US, than in Canada, England, France, and all the other free care countries.

    How could a person, viewing the federal government not being able to handle even simple things want these clowns taking over healthcare. It’s breathtaking..

  16. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, great information; sad information. Ya, my husband used to say “Americans don’t learn from watching other countries fail… I don’t get it”.
    Get a patient into hospital within 18 weeks, imagine?
    My family is familiar with Canadian healthcare which, while their taxes are really high and they don’t even have mortgage write-offs!, is pretty darned good….for physical therapy, out patient treatments, but don’t get REALLY sick…….there are waits much longer than we’re used to.

    I have a friend on MediCal…at the mercy of the state. Her health is suddenly terrible, just after she hadn’t worked for 3 years and lost her COBRA and now has to go through the State…appointments take WEEKS to get, and she’s in horrid pain…and she told me she’s often the only non hispanic in the full waiting rooms….The amount of illegals being treated is drowning our hospitals, clinics and docs who take MediCal, according to the receptionist of one who she’s become friendly with….she’s been stunned at what she’s seeing…awful.
    Having said that, nobody is anti Hispanic ..I’m not, she’s not, but the illegal treatment is so much to the detriment of our own citizens who’d paid into the system.

  17. Imp says:

    @Z…”every time I read that Talking Points Memo”…

    Ya know he had a knockout one the night before too I think on race and blacks. He is unafraid to tell the truth and then invite some guy / woman on with a permanent chip on their shoulder… come in and tell him he’s wrong. At his web site he has quizzes too…..current events, history…..I take them all the time to see if I’ve been paying attention. Try them sometime. Very educational.

  18. Imp says:

    Kid…£30,000..is about 44,000 US.

  19. FB says:

    Yup Kid. Doctors in France now make 20-25 euros a visit and they spend around 30 minutes with a patient. Remove the taxes (50% at least) and there’s not much left. Nurses are around minimum wage. Hospitals don’t do all the tests necessary. My friend’s mom got sent from the hospital after really bad stomach pain without tests and she died 2 days later. That’s what the free stuff gets you.

  20. Kid says:

    Z, and this horror show is just getting started in the US. Canada: Yea, don’t get sick. Years ago, I read about a Canadian PM coming to California for breast cancer treatment. Imagine that. Then I’ve known about business in Canada that do nothing but arrange for medical care appointments and costs in the US for Canadians. An executive with a big company in Vancouver told me if you want to be able to get health care you must buy your own insurance which Canada at the time had allowed the insurers back. So now he’s paying the Ins, in addition to paying all the taxes for the ‘free healthcare’. It will be the same here. Well it will be much worse actually. 75% or more of obamacare hasn’t even been implemented yet. Guess they’re waiting to see if a repub gets elected before they trigger the bomb.

    United Health here has closed themselves to obamacare in most states because they were/are losing tons of money over it. Yea, obamacare is great.

    Well, the weather is finally good here for a week or so.

  21. Kid says:

    IMP, Rather than exchange rate, I was using product and living costs in England vs Here.

  22. geeez2014 says:

    My German stepdaughter pays more than a $1000 US (in Euros, of course) for FREE GERMAN HEALTH CARE.

    Good on the weather….gorgeous here, too!

  23. Kid says:

    One of the articles I read quoted a doctor saying she’d have to move out of her apartment near London, because wiht the new contract, she wouldn’t be able to afford it. Imagine a doctor not being able to afford and apartment?

  24. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, you lived in England, right?

  25. Kid says:

    FB, Wow. I’m currently paying $60 for co-pay (20 before obama) and my doctor is having trouble making ends meet. Most of his patients are Medicare.. How can the French doctors do it and why would they want to.

  26. Kid says:

    Z, yea, 1990. It may be different now, but I can’t imagine how. Their welfare population continues to grow with the moslem invasion of Europe.

  27. Kid says:

    Z, Imagine going to urgent care in Germany and being surrounded by moslems instead f Mexicans, and wondering if there’s 20 lbs of C$ under that burka over there. And maybe the story came from you but the savages treat the medical staff like the savages they are.

  28. geeez2014 says:

    Well, Kid, I sure don’t think it’s improved much….
    And I was horrified at some of the diagnoses I heard while living in Germany….things we here in America just KNOW, and suddenly a friend’s being sent home with heart problems?
    I will say, however, that they keep them IN the hospital an inordinately long time for some reason…hysterectomy recovery was like 4 WEEKS….ridiculous. With no complications..maybe that’s changed by now. We kick patients out too early, quite often, but four WEEKS recovery for a simple surgery?

  29. Kid says:

    Z, Well a little perspective. I broke my leg in 1968, had it operated on twice by a German doctor (as it happens) and was in the hospital for 6 weeks. Total cost – %1,800.00

  30. Imp says:

    @Z….”Good on the weather….gorgeous here, too!”

    Any meaningful rain to end that 5 year drought yet?

  31. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, right…BIG difference in cost..imagine SIX WEEKS in the hospital for that? I have to admit,in Europe, the costs are FAR FAR less….I had pretty big time hand surgery in Paris about 15 years ago…$800 for the whole thing…doctor, anesthesia, 12 hours in the clinic…it would have been $8000 here, easy.

    Imp…you crack me up! Gee, I’d forgotten we have a drought! (not)….yes, we did have some good rain this year…and, suddenly, the story went immediately from “This will help” to “we need ten more inches”…every time we have rain, the experts move the bar. Climate or Ideology?
    I love rain… As long as it’s not a Florida hurricane.
    and I’m proud of Californians who are planting more cacti and making it look really nice…very good

  32. geeez2014 says:

    Listening to the scuttlebutt after Sanders’ crash last night in NY and I marvel at how adults, including Dem senators, can have the GALL to say things like “We need Sanders…he’s pushed Hillary in the direction this country needs..” What, free everything? Free healthcare that messes health care up? And has proven to do so already? Free school in a situation where our kids are already feeling entitled to everything they can get their hands on? Welcoming illegals and paying for them all? Welcoming refugees many of whom we know are radicalized muslims?
    Which part do they mean? Breaking down our banking system?
    Is that what the left means by The Direction We Need?

    They all need to read O’Reilly’s talking points above and I WOULD LOVE A DEBATE ON THEM…SO much. O’Reilly and Hillary; let them go AT IT.

  33. Kid says:

    Z, Welcome to the Donald Trump fan club 🙂

    Actually I read where Cruz supposedly needs a contested convention now..

  34. bocopro says:

    Cruz needs a nice hot bowl of reality stew along with a humility sandwich and a cold bottle of harmony tonic.

  35. Kid says:

    The current group of contenders is a very sad statement about our country And foreign media calls our election process an absolute cluster. Yep.

  36. Baysider says:

    @Imp: “Land of the free…..and home of….” That has now been changed to: “the land of the free, better safe than sorry.” (tip to Dennis Prager)

  37. geeez2014 says:

    Kid…I HATE Trump (read my lips…and I HATE to say I HATE anybody)…I hate his horrible lack of vocabulary that makes him look intensely stupid, I hate his constant bragging, I hate his …everything. But it looks like it is him and I’ll vote for the jerk. If ONLY he could damp down the hyperbole and name calling..if ONLY.
    The foreign media’s laughing at us. We deserve it.

    Cruz DEFINITELY needs a contested convention, then good luck with that; I’m not positive the GOP establishment hates Trump enough to pick Cruz. Let’s face it, folks. THEY are the ones picking the nominee.

    Bocopro…he’s the only conservative and I see less ego than I do huge desire to fix this country the right way.

    Baysider…that is a fabulous way to put it….he’s so right.

  38. geeez2014 says:

    And it’s BETTER SAFE THAN;
    Sorry
    Ambitious
    self reliant
    unapologetic
    to not have a law against it
    pay your own way
    educated to think
    learn how to cope

    We all could go on and ON, couldn’t we.

  39. bocopro says:

    For no particular reason, I’ll just post this li’l parody of The Bard’s Richard III (III, i) which I whipped up a few months ago when the media became infatuated with El Donaldo:

    Now is the summer of our discontent
    Made glorious pastime by this Don of Trump;
    And all the fear that lurked within our speech
    In the far corner of the dungeon banished.
    Now are our brows lit with unspeakable truths;
    Our battered goals recharged for argument,
    Our buried dreams revived for contemplation,
    Our old ideals their polish and luster freshed.
    Smug unbought cheek hath stoked his cocky voice;
    And now, instead of mealy-mouthing words
    To satisfy norms of staid convention,
    He disdains pledging his conformity
    Whilst he funds his ride from naught but his own.
    And he, not steeped in approved politics,
    Nor apt to suffer bogus popinjays;
    He, that to no PAC his allegiance owes
    Nor bows to kings or entrenched lobbyists;
    He, that disparaged the Foxy blonde Queen
    Who used her beauty ‘gainst him as device
    When ‘mongst his peers his habits she assailed,
    In league with those who would him now expulse
    As aggravation in stage performance
    Of their refined practiced mantra chants;
    No, he, in this sad declining time of slump,
    Takes no delight in playing by their rules,
    Except where law and circumstance dictate,
    And returns two-fold the barb the question masks.
    And therefore, since he cannot play a gop,
    Or imitate the rehearsed well-drilled types,
    He enjoys his role as provocateur
    And says what we all think and they can’t say.

  40. Baysider says:

    He DID nail it. So has bocopro. TWICE!! Brilliant in parody …. and understanding of the role of the feds.

  41. geeez2014 says:

    Boco: “He, that disparaged the Foxy blonde Queen
    Who used her beauty ‘gainst him as device”
    WELL DONE!!! It’s all good but I love playing with words like you did with FOXY!

    EVERYBODY:
    Just hung up with a friend from Bible Study who’s a conservative and knows I am; she were whining about the candidates…and she said ALL her conservative friends here say “How can we vote for a JERK like Trump? He’s so crude and blustering and egomaniacal…and there is ZERO guarantee he’ll lean to the Right after he’s nominee.. ” (which is absolutely true, they don’t trust him…how can they?) It’s pretty scary that so many Cons might not vote Republican, vote at ALL, because of him, this “great white hope’ so many conservatives believe he is.
    VERY sad.

  42. Kid says:

    This will all work out Perfectly Ms Z. I triple guarantee it.

    – Baghdad Bob

  43. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, that’s hilarious! BAGHDAD BOB!! 🙂 perfect.
    And yes, it WILL work our Perfectly because, if we believe in the Guy Upstairs, it will all work out as He plans, right?? He guarantees it, too 🙂

  44. Kid says:

    Exactly Z. And He’s got much more on the ball than Baghdad Bob I’m sure.

  45. geeez2014 says:

    Ya, I think He definitely has a LOT MORE on the ball !!! 🙂

    Isaiah 45:6-7 – That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that [there is] none beside me. I [am] the LORD, and [there is] none else.

  46. Imp says:

    An epic moment in history:

    http://www.anncoulter.com/

  47. geeez2014 says:

    And imagine, Imp, what those great men would have thought of someone saying “lyyyyyyin’ Ted” and “Crooked Hillary” and “I’m SO WONDERFUL!”….I shudder.

  48. Imp says:

    @Z…well…what I’ve read is that they were much worse or equal in their disdain and vitriol for each other. Those men went after each other with enormous passion. Adams and Jefferson totally hated and mocked each other for years. It was only later when out of office that they began to exchange letters and became friends and close. Lincoln and Douglas had some very heated debates too. This is nothing unusual in American theater. Matter of fact…it was Douglas who was the winner and the greatest orator over Lincoln. I do love American History and have been hooked on it since I was in grade school.

  49. Kid says:

    ” One if by land, and two if by sea. (Please tell me most American schoolchildren still know that line.) ”

    Ah, No. Today’s university kids don’t know who Frank Sinatra or Marilyn Monroe were. Extropolate from there.

  50. geeez2014 says:

    Imp…that’s right, things were rough particularly around lincoln’s time …and I STILL think none of them were as disgusting as Trump is.. And if they were, we’d come a long way from that incivility..till now. Heated debate is something I’d welcome…. “lyyying Ted Cruz” every five minutes in every speech is disgusting….
    And I’m tired of people likening Trump to Andrew Jackson, too, just because he was an outsider…

    Kid…our kids don’t have a clue about that, or the Pledge of ALlegiance or the Lord’s prayer, or My Country ‘Tis of Thee…remember they don’t even have to stand for the Pledge or the anthem anymore….God forbid it should offend them.
    And ya, I saw those kids who didn’t know who Frank Sinatra was….
    it’s unbelievable, isn’t it….they know NOTHING but CLIMATE CHANGE, FREEBIES and “OBama’s such a DUDE!”

  51. geeez2014 says:

    Imp, if Trump was just cocky and sure and tough but full of real facts and ideas and he’d stop using the language of an 8 yr old boy on the playground, I could get behind him…as it is, his likability numbers are so low…
    Ya, he says he’ll be MORE PRESIDENTIAL when he’s chosen as the nominee, but let’s face it, we’ve seen what he’s really like…sadly…

  52. Imp says:

    @Z…hey…shit….I agree with you 1000% my dear friend. But like someone said before…he talks at an 8th grade reading level…which is a gut level that he thinks the man in the street grasps. Me…I’d like to raise the bar a tad….LOL…say 12th grade? Look…the man didn’t get where he is because he’s a dunce either. The problem is we expect more “sophistication” right? He’s not a lawyer and look where all the GD lawyers from Harvard or Yale have gotten us. How about this then? Putin’s not a prima donna or a lawyer or a Harvard grad…but I damn well believe he and Trump won’t have any problems understanding other. I’m sick of nuance and parsing myself….diplomatic BS talk too.

    I’m educated too Z….and yes…believe it or not…I cringe at some of the things he says. On the other hand…I really cringe at the phoniness of Cruz and his Pastor like Pentecostal delivery. Cruz….is way too slick for me. It’s his cadence and word selection that really troubles me…in other words..I think he’s full of shit. Either way …like I just said to Kid….we’re gone, done, toast and and over. I believe we’re finished as a Republic.

  53. Kid says:

    The smart ones figured out we were finished when they re-elected obama and their blogs went dark. It’s just not my persona to ‘give up’, but if they put the beast in there, I’m done with politics, I won’t even bother voting anymore. I won’t even bother voting in local elections since a freakin school tax levy has never been voted down here in the last 10 years. Morons.

    We’re going to go Jeramiah Johnson.

  54. geeez2014 says:

    No, sophistication isn’t so important to me…honor and dignity are……and not calling people silly childish names….now he’s talking about Cruz and the Bible, attacking Cruz’ faith.

    Ya, we both cringe, Imp, and I know very well how smart you are, and I respect that very much, but this guy takes the cake. Yes, I’ll have to vote for him but…….yikes.

    And I used to feel about Cruz as you do, but I think he’s the only true Conservative there is out there…he really does honor and UNDERSTAND the Constitution and has fought for it his whole life….people who know him from Harvard say he’s the “smartest guy in every room he enters”….funny, because I’m blogging something about him tomorrow.
    Believe me, I think he’s a creep but I would totally respect his presidency….I don’t think he’s a phony but I don’t find him appealing at all, either…

    Imp, wouldn’t you THINK in this big country we could find people better than the candidates on both sides today!?

    Here I am, coming in last of all the commentators.

    Bill O’Reilly is full of it. “The government” has no responsibility to its citizens other that what the citizens determine. Period. If the citizens want only an army to protect from foreign invasion, they should get it, and pay for it. If they want free schools, they should get it, and pay for it. The whole subject of the relation between a citizenry to its chosen government depends on what the citizens want.

    We are at the point where entrenched government minions are determining what THEY want to offer the American people. The train is off the tracks, and the inevitable tipping point is in sight. The consuming parasites will control the producing class. Get used to it.

    Of course…but the previous 14 tried and look at what we put them through. Is it ego, power or true patriotism that motivates them? It’s never a win win…it’s always the devil you know…vs the hag in a pantsuit we already know. I hate Hillary with a passion that I can’t describe here. I’ll go with the other devil and know that it’s fine with me it’s not her…the evil POS that she and the Clintons are. How stupid can we be to have another run of these thieves anyway? If she does screw us and get it…..she won’t last 2 years.
