Have you seen the video made on Election Day 2008 where some Obama voters were randomly asked questions to see what they learned from the media coverage of the campaign? youtu.be_JJLLfTR81
It was almost laughable listening to the answers they gave except for the fact that they had no clue when asked about Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Bill Ayers. They knew who McCain was, kind of but they really knew a lot about Sarah Palin; at least they thought they did. It was truly amazing to listen to the ridiculous answers these adults were asked. They didn’t even know who Joe Biden is and were completely unaware of certain statements or actions of the president they elected.
If some of those interviewed were college students, how in the world did they ever get there? Are there no guidelines for basic knowledge learned in high school? Did they even learn anything about our country’s history or how our government is organized or supposed to be.
When you watch this video and many of you may have already seen it, did you or do you find it at all surprising at their answers?
It would be interesting to know, when they voted for him, exactly how much they actually knew about him. It is probably a good guess that it wasn’t much, if anything. What was it besides his suave speeches and empty promises that caused them to cast their votes for Obama? Why did they choose to vote for someone who evidently had no real credentials showing that he was fit to be in such a high position in our country? Why was it that no one questioned his experience, knowledge and accomplishments; obviously none of which he has now or has had previously?
Don’t most people, before they vote, try to find out as much as they can about the person they want to vote for? When did that stop or has that been something imagined all these years? Americans have usually been very intelligent people; haven’t they?
It seemed pretty obvious that the people interviewed in the video were about as clueless as anyone could be about the very people that are in our government and the candidates that were running for office that year. As a matter of fact, they knew nothing about the people that they probably all voted into office.
One impression gotten from those interviewed on the video was that when they voted, they just went with the one that seemed to be more popular or whose face they saw more frequently in the news.
Speaking of news, when asked what their news sources were, they basically said it was CNN, CBS and MSNBC; although others were mentioned. We all know that when you depend on the lame stream news media, you get all the sugary answers that you want, but rarely the truth.
It seems pretty amazing that with all the things that were going on with Obama, Pelosi, Reid and others that they were so ill-informed. On second thought, when you realize how journalism has basically gone down the tubes; particularly since the 2007 presidential campaign. Of course, journalism started on the downhill slope way before then, but it hadn’t become as noticeable to most Americans until the last several years during this administration.
Even during the first term of Barack Obama, most people still either had their heads in the sand or simply chose to turn a deaf ear to those who were actually reporting the truth. Good, clean and honest journalism had for the most part disappeared into dark unseen roads and it became a tool for the left wing liberals to use against anyone who dared speak or write the truth. It has more or less, become this administration’s battering ram against Republicans in general or anyone who defends the actions of the right-wing patriotic conservatives.
Trying to get to the truth by watching CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC or MSNBC is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Then you have magazines like Harper’s Magazine, Mother Jones, Progressive, and the New Republic to name a few and newspapers like the Huffington Post, the New York Times and the Washington Post that will always defend any liberal attacks on conservatives as well as any actions taken by this progressive, liberal government we have with Barack Obama.
This dictator feels that he should call all the shots regardless of how they may negatively affect the American people. Barack Obama doesn’t care what happens to our American way of life and he has these progressive liberals who defend him no matter what. Oh, and don’t forget, there are liberal radio-talk show hosts and TV hosts who will tear up any conservative until there’s not much left to tear up.
The good news is that we still have strong patriotic conservatives who are willing to fight back. Are you one of them?
If you want to hear the absolute truth about the issues and be well informed, here are some good online sources: CNS News, Americans for Prosperity, American Family Association, Conservative Refocus, Numbers USA, Judicial Watch, The Heritage Foundation and the John Birch Society. Here are a few conservative talk radio shows that will bring you the truth: Conservative Commandos Radio Show, Mark Levin Show, Rush Limbaugh Show and the only place on TV that reports news as it happens and brings out the truth no matter how politically incorrect it is: Fox News Channel, especially Sean Hannity, Bret Baier and Greta VanSustern.
There is a difference in how liberals and conservatives handle the issues of the day. Liberals seem to always take a negative outlook, twist the truth to fit what they want it to be and do everything in their power to put conservatives in a bad light. They have another strong trait, as well; that being that they don’t follow what the American people want because it doesn’t fit in their agendas. Their way is always right even if it’s the worst scenario there could be. Their actions are based on lies. They do try to make them look good; you’ve got to give them credit for that, but no matter how good they make them look, they are still lies.
In contrast, conservatives base their reporting on the truth regardless of who tries to deny it. If the truth hurts, then you are on the wrong side of the fence and definitely walking on the wrong path.
Truth is what the founding principles of our country are based on and anything less detracts from its greatness. Unfortunately, the truth has become unpopular with many journalists, reporters and other members of the lame stream media.
Why have we allowed it to come this far? Why did we not, as Americans, stand up and fight for the truth on every issue? Why did we allow our Constitution to become so abused that it is hanging by a thread and dangerously close to being completely dismantled by this progressive, liberal administration?
Are we willing to let the progressive liberals have the last word? Are we willing to allow them to tell us what we can or can’t do? Are we willing to allow our country to be under the dictatorial rule of an out of touch president who cares about nothing but what he wants regardless of how it negatively impacts the middle class and poor Americans? Think about what has happened in other countries that allowed this kind of (ahem!) leadership in their countries. Is that what you want for your children and grandchildren? Can you imagine what life would be like for them? Do some homework; find out what is really going on (many times behind closed doors) in our government. You can bet on it; it isn’t anything good.
Any government that bases their decisions on lies and continues to promulgate those lies dressed up to look like the truth just so they can get their way is a government that can bring destruction to a nation. This is where we are headed if we don’t stand up as American citizens and make our voices heard high above those of the liberal democrats that continually over-ride the laws of our Constitution; the very laws that are meant to be the laws of our land. What is it going to take to get the general public outraged enough to take whatever steps are needed to bring about a change in this irresponsible and corrupt government?
As important as it is to raise our voices and be heard; it won’t do much good if those words aren’t followed by some kind of action on the part of every patriotic conservative. Everyone can’t march on Washington; it’s just not feasible, but everyone can march on their local and state governments and let them know they had better remember that they were put in office to serve Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public; not the other way around.
Perhaps if we can put enough pressure on our local and state officials to serve their constituents, they may be more inclined to listen to and act on the will of the people. It may be that we might turn the tide on the federal government through the actions that come from We the people with our local and state officials. If we could succeed in doing what we can in our own communities and states for officials to be more principled and follow constitutional law, perhaps we can make it happen in our federal government, as well.
What needs to happen first is that we need to reach out to as many people as possible via social media, articles, videos, conservative talk radio and TV shows, conservative magazines and newspapers and sharing what we know and what we learn with those around us. There are too many people out in the community who have no clue about the issues that face us today. We must do whatever we can to make sure they know and understand. This will give us a broader base from which to draw voters to vote conservatively at the polls. This may also give us a broader base from which we might nominate strong conservatives to run for the high offices in our government.
Whatever we do, we’d better do it soon. We have a presidential administration that is unwilling to negotiate across the aisle to put our country back on track if they do not get their way. This is not the American way. This is the tyrannical way of the most un-American president we have ever had in the history of our country. He will talk and negotiate with foreign leaders but he will not do the same thing with our own Congress or even the people. He openly says he will do what he wants with or without the help of Congress and he makes it very clear by his actions that he couldn’t care less for American citizens and most certainly for our military. This is so clear from his actions to weaken the ability of our troops in harm’s way and our veterans who are treated as though they don’t matter. This is particularly clear when he allows their open air memorials to be blocked off so they can’t get in after making a long and tiring trip that has been planned for them for months; a memorial that they have every right to visit.
How many more constitutional laws are this president and his administration going to be allowed to break? Next weekend there will be a rally by truckers to protest the breaking of our constitutional laws by our elected officials including the president. They are brave and honorable and willing to make a great sacrifice in order to show Washington that the people are tired of their nonsense and that we will do what we need to do to make our voices heard loud and clear. They hope to make these career politicians realize how unimportant they really are and that the people have had enough.
A prayer goes up for those truckers and anyone else who joins them in their quest. May God bless and strengthen them that no harm may befall any of them and that they will be able to deliver their message to any and all government officials so they will know where the American people stand.
