What Do Conservatives Really Want?

NeoCons

Chameleons

If your only source of political information is the Lamestream Mainstream Media, you would never realize that the movement known as the Tea Party Movement isn’t a monolithic group of people who support homogeneous political positions.  As a dues paying (make that Ron Paul campaign contributing) member of the original reconstituted Tea Party that began on December 16, 2007, I and many others were uniformly opposed to Congressman Ron Paul’s REPUBLICAN OPPONENTS in the race for the 2008 Republican nominee.  Since then a variety of ordinary NeoCon politicians labeled as Conservatives or Republicans have succeeded in representing themselves as Tea Party members.  I guess they’re free to do so, since there’s no formal Tea Party membership and no formal membership criteria.  Nevertheless, I am compelled to make the point that people like Dick Armey, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, Herman Cain and all the others on the stage with Ron Paul – are impostors.

Tom Mullen recently published an article on his blog that makes my point better than I can.  Read it HERE.

In 2012 it’s RON PAUL or NOBODY AT ALL

Message to the GOP leadership and to their willing accomplices in the media:

In 2012, it’s RON PAUL or NOBODY AT ALL.

If the GOP thinks the Republican Party can regain the White House, it had better start recognizing and supporting the candidacy of Congressman, Doctor Ron Paul right now and start to honestly present the history and voting records of his big government, mainstream, media favorite opponents for what they are… regardless of the fact that some of them will come off looking like idiots, corporate shills, socialists and uninformed Tea Party imposters.

The following videos are presented for the simple purpose of illustrating that Ron Paul has been right for AT LEAST 23 years.  The first two videos were recorded in 1988 when Ron Paul ran for the office of president as the Libertarian Party candidate.  Notice that he explains what was going on back then and predicted EXACTLY what the result would be.

Part 1 – 1988 Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Ron Paul interview.

Part 2 – 1988 Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Ron Paul interview.

In this video we see that a mainstream media network isn’t happy that it inadvertently allowed Ron Paul’s accurate message to be aired and potentially heard by the American public.

John Stewart hosts a show on the comedy channel.  Even so, it’s possibly the least biased news outlet around.  In the following video, he exposes the blatent bias that exists on a variety of the so-called “legitimate” news channels.

If you don’t want to see Obama re-elected…  All Independents including libertarian Party, Green Party, Constitution Party members as well as freedom loving Republicans and Democrats need to register as Republicans to insure that Ron Paul becomes the GOP nominee and INSURE that either Ron Paul or Barack Obama will be the next president.

Personally;  If Ron Paul doesn’t win in 2012, I don’t think it matters who wins.

I need to do some more studying.  How about you?

Texas Governor Rick Perry Hears The Wind Blowing

In his typical “finger to the wind” decision making methodology, Texas Governor Rick Perry has decided to add the TSA Anti-Groping bill to the current special legislative session agenda.  The Houston Chronicle issued the following:

Gov. Rick Perry announced he had added legislation that would make it illegal for TSA agents to engage in “intrusive touching” at airports security checkpoints without probable cause to the list of items for the legislature to consider during the special session.

The measure had previously failed to muster enough support in the Texas Senate to come up for a vote because the Justice Department wrote a scathing memo against the bill, which threatened legal action against the state, and the measure became enmeshed in Senate politics.  Read more…

Typical Republican – Texas Gov. Rick Perry

When Colonel William Barrett Travis drew a line in the sand prior to the Texicans stand at the Alamo, it was meant to convey that even when faced with certain defeat and certain death, there would be no turning back.  The current state governor, Rick Perry, doesn’t deserve to be in the same category with Travis.

When presented with a warning by the US Justice Department that Texas would be declared a no-fly zone in the event that the TSA Anti-Groping Bill passed and was signed into state law, Perry couldn’t back peddle fast enough.

In the following video, you see him lying through his teeth saying that he wasn’t aware that the Texas House & Senate already had votes committed to support the acts passage.  Don’t be fooled by this lying, cowardly, big statist clown.  He’s nothing more than a typical mainstream Republican.

 

Picture = 1,000 Words

It’s true.  Cliche’s become cliche’s because they are obviously true.  That fact was driven home to me when a friend sent me an image he found on a local radio stations website.  The image below is a composite of two photos taken of two national leaders that depict something of how they spent their youth.  Is it any wonder that Benjamin Netanyahu and Barack Obama have distinctly different worldviews?
