Debate #1 – August 2015

debateDebates. Why the do we even care about them outside of the Democrat vs. Republican context? I find that it’s just a chance for “like-minded” presidential hopefuls to bicker amongst each other for two hours and not say a damn thing. Thursday night was no exception.

We started off with the FOX moderators asking the candidates if they would run third party if they didn’t get the nomination. This was telling in how the stage would be set for the debate. A blatant attempt to Donald Trump and make him look like a fool, and of course Trump fell for it. Now, I’m no fan of Trump, I think he’s a blow hard, egotistical ass hat. That being said, I am extremely disappointed in FOX News attacking him the way they did. Megyn Kelly, especially, was a bit of a bitch. They handled themselves very poorly and it was apparent they went into the debate holding a grudge against Trump.

Trump gave straight, confident answers, sort of. He only told us what most of us want to hear, and his answers were very arrogant. Basically, “I’m super rich [which isn’t a problem in my book], everyone loves me [not really] and I did some shady shit with the system to get ahead in business [true].” He got a few jabs in on the others, as well as Rosie O’Donnell, but all in all he did pretty poorly.

Jeb Bush. Just, fuck no. Set aside the fact we do not need a dynasty when it comes to presidents. I mean I liked Dubya, sometimes, but there were a lot of things that I did not like about him. His brother Jeb is one in the same. He’s pro-open borders, pro-common core, his wife can barely speak english [I’ve been told], he’s a RINO, a wolf in sheep’s clothing and of course a Bush. Need I say more.

Chris Christie is another creature all together. New Jersey governor, RINO, hugger of Obama. It’s fair to say that he and Jeb are pretty much the farthest left of those in the debate. I honestly can’t remember all he said because I can’t stand the guy. He did get into it with Rand Paul over NSA spying. Long story short, Christie is all for it.

I used to like Rubio, and I will say that he probably has views that match a lot of my own. But come on. Even he basically wants amnesty. He was probably the most Presidential of all the guys though. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t he get elected riding on the shoulders of the Tea Party and then basically thank them by somewhat jumping ship on some major conservative issues? I don’t know. I just don’t really like him anymore.

Governor Kasich seems like a beady eyed little kook. He loves big government and Obamacare apparently. The only reason he got the response he did when answering questions was because he had home field advantage.

Huckabee just won’t be President, plain and simple. Sorry Huckster.

Ben Carson did surprisingly well, I thought. He needs to work on his facts though. As I was talking to my brother afterwards and he pointed out that the USAF was formed in 1947, not 1940. Admittedly a small mistake, but it’s something that will be used against him in the future, especially from the Democrats that aim for the jugular.

Rand Paul got absolutely no time . I think he got a total of 5 minutes and some change total for the two hour debate. I think FOX News thinks he is a truther, an evil libertarian, he wants to legalize all the drugs, and he’s a hippie who is just a threat to the Republican establishment.

Scott Walker? Meh. He seems to be a pretty staunch conservative, in my opinion. Dealing with all the union bullshit in Wisconsin. I believe he is a man of his word and has more integrity than other established douchebag Republicans. Still not sure he will make it far in the nomination process though.

Ted Cruz? He’s my homeboy. From calling Mitch McConnell a liar on the Senate floor to reading ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ as a filibuster. [Side-note, best Dr. Seuss book period.] [Side-side-note, that was not a Megyn Kelly period joke.] Anyway, I may be a bit biased towards this shining example of a human being, but I think he gave the some of the best answers. Unfortunately, I still don’t know if he would be a good Republican nominee at this time.

I missed the pre-debate debate, but heard Carly Fiorina utterly killed it. Hopefully she will make it to the main debate next time. I am really hopeful that we will see the dream team of a Trump/Bush ticket and have another four to eight years of Democrat rule.

American Insurgency

“Periodic revolution, ‘at least once every 20 years,’ was ‘a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.’” Thomas Jefferson.

America was founded on insurgency, as we all know, and according to this quote, we are long overdue for a new revolution.  Now I’m not talking insurgency like what’s going in the Middle East.  Palestinian “freedom fighters” are nothing more than terrorists and thugs whose goal is to eradicate a race of people off the face of the earth.  I’m talking about a revolution to take back the freedom that the government has taken away from us in the last 60 years.

Thomas Jefferson, as well as the rest of the founding fathers, knew that a government would long to have more and more control of everyone and everything they can get their grubby little hands on.  To borrow quote from Stan Lee ,”with great power comes great responsibility.”  The problem we have is that the government wants an ever-growing power with the benefit of passing the responsibility to someone else, i.e. tax the rich.  We need to have a revolution in this country and force those in our government to listen to us again.  I’m not suggesting taking up arms.  Yet.

We have a responsibility to our family, friends, and neighbors to make sure we elect the right representatives into office, representatives who will then make the needed decisions to help this country thrive.  This starts not with the president, but closer to home.  The most important campaigns are run in our own backyards and a lot of us don’t pay any attention to them.  I would find it hard to believe that any of us know every elected official in our local city hall.  How about in the county we live in.  For some reason our only focus is what’s happening, a little bit  at the state level, but mainly at the national level.

We need to change this.  I am calling for a peaceful revolution.  We need to work together to take control of our city, then our county.  Then we’ll be able to take control of our state, then even our country.  The progressives had the right idea with the 100 year plan.  If we plan on changing the nation for the better we need to copy some plays out of their playbook and come up with some new ones on our own.  New plays like going out to urban areas, and showing them the true nature of the democrat party, and how it is not the party of the people.  I heard somewhere that there were individuals ready and willing to go out to jewish, latino, and black communities to try to drive support for Mitt Romney a few months back.  The Romney campaign turned their offers down.  What?  This really needs to change.  I’m looking at you GOP.

Another step we need to take is taking back the education system from leftist union control.  We do have awesome teachers out their who are pushed aside by some of the worst teachers around, just because they have been a teacher longer.  Teachers should be held to some kind of standards, and the current, as long as they don’t kill a student, mentality is getting us nowhere.  Parents need to be involved in the educating of our children.  We need to instill our children with righteous morals, a good work ethic, and respect of their fellow-man.  We need to teach them the truth about American history, the good and the bad, and show them how when we did something wrong this is how we fixed it.

We allow liberal public school teachers to mold the minds of the children, under the guise of education, as they basically babysit our children.  Even if we can’t be there to educate our children in person, we should be at a minimum asking children what they learned in school today and have discussions on those subjects pointing out the blurring of any facts.  I don’t have children yet, and before you say that disqualifies me from giving out my “words of wisdom,” everything I’m saying is just plain common sense and I wish this was some of the interaction I had with my parents around the dinner table.

These are a few of the first steps I believe we need to accomplish to win back this nation.  It may end up being a slow process, but a slow process got us here in the first place.

Will the Youth Vote Be the Fall of America?

The term “Youth Vote” originally described voters in the 21-30 year old age bracket and was coined in the 1930’s. During the 1970’s the voting age was then changed to 18, bringing in hundreds of thousands of voters mainly fresh out of high school. Being 28, I myself fall under this category. Naturally, democrats used this to their advantage and have been working on forming the minds of children to their liberal ideologies. Eventually, in their minds, the youth would be overwhelmingly democrat due to the brainwashing attempted in the public school systems, and it works, to some extent.

The last two elections have had very high turn out from youth voters, in which the majority of that group voted for Al Gore and Barack Obama. Looking to the future, there are studies that show that in 2015 the youth vote will make up approximately 33% of all American voters. If the trend continues, that will be a major chunk of the voting population, who might end up supporting democrat candidates and ideologies. These politicians won’t have to break a sweat, or drop a dime for these votes.

Democrats have been pandering to these individuals for as long as I can remember, with promises of lower to no tuition costs for college, free money for living and food, and other types of entitlements for all. It’s no wonder that they flock to democrats who just tell them what they want to hear. If you listen to the news, it seems the youth of this nation really can’t think for themselves.

However, according to the New York Times, some of the youth vote, at least for the moment, is moving toward Mitt Romney and the republicans. Though he still leads by a large margin, support for Obama, between the 18-24 year old voters is half what the 25-29 year old vote is.

I thought to myself why is this? Why would support for Obama being going downhill. After thinking back to the debate, and things that I’ve seen in the past four years, I came up with two theories.

First off, maybe, just maybe these youth are realizing that they are not getting what they were promised and their eyes are finally opened to the lies of the left. They realize that the country is going to hell and the failed policies of the current administration are just flat out hurting America. The only other possible theory, I can think of, is that they are upset with Obama, and the democrats, and will vote for Romney out of spite.

According to a poll, from Harvard, Obama is loosing support from students, not because they’re voting for Romney, but because they aren’t going to vote at all.

According to U.S. News:

As the race hurtles into its last weeks, the youth vote is becoming less of a lock for President Obama than it was for his first White House bid. And it’s not because young people like GOP nominee Mitt Romney any more than Obama, it’s that they just might not show up at the polls this time around.

“Millennial enthusiasm is nowhere near where it was four years ago,” says Harvard Institute of Politics Director Trey Grayson.

While a new Harvard poll finds that young adults trust Obama over Romney to improve their lives 55 percent to 36 percent among “likely” voters, fewer than half of 18 to 29-years-olds said they “definitely” plan to vote at all. That number is down 19 points from 2008, when 66 percent of Millennials were registered and ready to cast ballots.

While at the same time:

Romney’s youth voters are much more likely to make it out to vote in November. Sixty-five percent of his voters said they are definitely going to make it to the polls whereas just over half of Obama’s supporters were committed to casting a ballot.

So it looks like, in my opinion, Obama is losing support out of spite. A small percentage are turning to Romney, most are just going to stay home. Romney on the other hand, is gaining support because of an emerging energized base of youth voters.

Even though it’s not a clear-cut victory for Romney with the youth, the tides are changing. It just goes to show how important our vote is to secure a victory on either side, and republicans have not been doing enough to grab these votes. I believe that will change, republicans are not just a bunch of old, fat, white, rich guys. There is a young, diverse group of republicans rising from the midst of this great country, and they will be the future of the GOP.

So will the youth vote destroy America? No, I really don’t think so. I think the destruction of America would come at the hands of a majority of the population living off government entitlements and/or a majority of the population in government employment. Both very real possibilities, but that’s a whole other topic.

WE Will NEVER Forget

Eleven years ago today, evil rose from the depths of hell.  That evil had conjured a plan to take thousands of innocent lives and tear America apart.  This plan was devised and deployed by cowards, Muslim extremists, people who are less than human, people who are true scum of the earth.  On that day, they killed nearly 3,000 people from 115 countries.  The had succeeded at their goal of death and destruction.  However, these cowards did not count us Americans coming together. We donated blood, food, and money to those in need.  We stood by our friends, family, neighbors and strangers, and held each others hands and prayed to God for guidance and hope.  We showed them that they had failed in their diabolical plot, that we were strong and they were the weak, and we showed them the mighty force of the American military, and brought them to justice.

Now more than ever we need to come together.  It doesn’t matter your race or politics, we need to get back to that unity and strength we had on 9/12/2001.

We at TheRevolutionary will never forget.

“…America Needs A Turnaround.”

Paul Ryan’s speech was great last night.  The guy could barely get out  a sentence before everyone was giving him a standing ovation.  It was really that good.

“The country doesn’t need four more years of run around, America needs a turnaround.”

This was the first quote that caught my attention, because it’s true, we have been lied to and told to look over at this hand and forget about what the other hand is doing, for to long.  Just one day of this is wrong, but the president has been doing this for four years.  It’s time to relieve our ‘Commander-In-Chief’ of his duty.

Another quote that just made me laugh, then I realized how true it was, was when he made reference to college graduates living at home.

“College graduates should not have to live out their twenties in their childhood bedroom staring up at faded Obama posters, wondering when they can move out and get going with life.”

This is so true it’s not even funny.  Think about it.  You go to school to get a good education, to get a good job, and when you get out, there’s no jobs available.  And why?  The leftist college professors and politicians will tell you it’s because of the greedy rich, tax dodging, evil corporations.  Sending all the jobs overseas.  However, we all know the truth is that it is the outrageous and socialistic taxes these same politicians are forcing on these corporations.  Causing them to not be able to buy products to sell, which means they can’t afford as many employee’s. Which means theirs less employee’s to help customers, which means customers can’t have their instant gratification, which makes them mad, so they don’t buy those products.  Which makes the company lose more money, which means they have to lay off more employee’s, and so on.  Trickle down poverty works as you can see, so it only makes sense, trickle down economics works as well. But I digress.

Anyway, if you missed it, you guys would be horrible conservatives.  Luckily I got your back, and have the video right here for your viewing pleasure.  So, feel free to do so.

Hand Grenade Fail

During grenade training, a chinese solider fails to throw the grenade.  Almost resulting catastrophically.  Luckily for the solider his trainer was able to pull them to a safety.
