Do I Believe My Heart or My Head?

Yep — no posts for a few months.

Emotionally, I’ve been through the old-style washing machine; the kind that has two rollers for squeezing the water out of your clothes.  Been trying to decide if I think this country is worth keeping anymore.  Why?

  • A subversive coup has taken place — with the approval of more than half the US population.
  • The media has totally sold out.  Do you think for a millisecond that the MSM would have allowed McCain to continue on his campaign without producing his birth certificate?
  • Many politicians have a passive-aggressive streak, but the president-elect is blatantly passive-aggressive. He even flaunts it.

Essentially, time is up. The Biblical ‘end times’ is upon us.  To borrow a phrase that was born out of the Bible, the writing is on the wall.  With that, my give-a-damn is in serious need of repair, and frankly I just don’t give a damn enough to fix it.

I’m juxtaposed between what’s in my heart (wanting to believe what I was taught — that the Constitution is actually worth something and the government actually works the way it’s supposed to) and what’s in my head (that the powers running things are hidden; that the US Government is simply actors in a big production number; that the country has become the proverbial boiled frog).

They did a good job in those government schools.  I believed it.  I really did.

And I still want to . . .

   . . . but I know better.

So I may venture in and out of this blog to bitch once in a while, but for the most part, I’m spending time reconciling my heart with my head;  Because although I WANT to believe my heart, I know better.

Who is paying for the poll about putting Hillary in the VP slot?

Behind the scenes, Democrats are seriously wondering about replacing Biden with Hillary.  I certainly don’t know who is paying for it, but William Arnone, who does “strategic positioning” out of NY is calling Hillary supporters who find BO offensive (pun intended) in a poll to find out if they will vote Obama if Biden is dropped and Hillary is brought on (see post from The Confluence).

It would be far-fetched to believe the “R” camp would shell out the money for such a poll.  No … it’s got to be someone in the “D” camp footing the bill.  Is it the BO division (pun intended), or perhaps a different group of “D’s” who don’t want to lose the White House AGAIN?   We may have the answer soon….

More evidence of Obama’s ego — from his own party

I’m no liberal, but I certainly enjoy reading the Confluence blog, hosted by devout Democrats.  The reason I enjoy reading their blog?  They’re not lemmings!  They’re not partisan hacks. They are true thinkers, and as such, they don’t suck up to the official Party line …. just as I, as a conservative, don’t suck up to the official Party line in the “R” column.

I find the following a somewhat humorous observation. It is taken from a Confluence post entitled How to Win the Presidential Argument: Democrats Don’t Get It:

Obama’s campaign, and his followers, have done nothing whatsoever to reach out to the Americans who refuse to worship at the altar of Obama, even those in their own Party. In fact, they have done everything in their power to further alienate us. Throughout the campaign, we recalcitrant Clinton Dems, Independents and Republicans have gotten the message loud and clear: Go The Fuck Away.

Thank you. I’ve been saying for months that Obama is nothing short of an egotist in an empty suit. And here are some true thinking Democrats who see him the same way.

The same Confluence post also states:

” … for knowing that Obama is illegitimate, unqualified and unelectable, I personally have been accused of being stupid, angry, a liar, immature, hateful, a Rush Limbaugh devotee, and a Republican by people who do not know me. People who do know me have been telling me I’m wrong and I should listen to Gloria Steinem and Hillary Clinton when making my choice. Why? Am I not allowed to do my own research and make up my own mind?”

Here’s to people who can think for themselves!

For anyone who would like to accuse me of being partisan — bite me.  I’ve been clear from the outset of this campaign that McCain doesn’t have enough money to buy my vote.  As a thinker on the right side of the political spectrum, I say “hats off” to my fellow-thinkers on the left side of the political spectrum for acknowledging that the current Democratic nominee is unqualified.

It’s not a partisan issue, people. It’s just a fact.

LISTEN to Obama’s words!

In increasing increments, Barack Hussein Obama is showing us what kind of man he really is.  His true colors are shining through. 

As an observer of people, I find it amazing that the man who was going to bring civility to the presidential campaign has morphed from being “civil” to being a street-talking blowhard, talking smack.  Take him out of the “presidential” spotlight, and just listen to him.  His voice tone, his attitudes, his word choices — all come across with an over-inflated ego.

Plain and simple, it’s become obvious he’s just another street talker who has learned the art of talking smack.  The problem? His lifelong ambition has been to be President.  But think again — does seven years in the Illinois legistlature (voting “present” as often as he did) and only ONE active year in the US Senate before launching his presidential bid makes him a qualified leader?

It is unbelievable that people fall for such a smooth talker. But a smooth talker he is, and as much as I like my liberal friends, they’re falling for a line of crap.  A smooth talker does not make good leader. 

And now that Obama is behind in the polls, we’re seeing just how “smooth” his talk is. It’s one long string of passive-aggressive insults.  Is THIS what we want in a leader?

THINK!  Really think!!  Is a passive-aggressive smack-talker what you want as a leader?
