"Live Free and Prosper"

Ghandi and Romney and the 47%

Mitt Romney has hit a nerve.

The mainstream media are indignant and downright apoplectic over Romney's "47 percent" comment.

In fact, the Obama administration's long term strategy is to create a permanent class of federally dependent citizens tipping over 50 percent in order to suffocate the very atmosphere that gives life to intellectual and political diversity in America.

As James Madison said, there are "two methods of removing the causes of faction: the one, by destroying the liberty which is essential to its existence; the other, by giving to every citizen the same opinions, the same passions, and the same interests."

The Obama administration is betting on statism and conformity complete with an ominous new flag and a cult-like salute.

But James Madison wasn't alone in his belief that the presence of an overwhelming government would stifle the freedom which serves as a prerequisite for individuality and creativity.

An impressive short list of some of history's most penetrating and influential thinkers all agreed -- for all their differences -- on the same basic premise: the long and painful process of individual self-mastery and character development could only flourish in an authoritarian-free environment.

Gandhi has always been championed by the left as an enlightened progressive. But in fact Gandhi was as conservative as Mitt Romney in his deep conviction regarding the status of freedom, self-respect, and individuality in the shadow of the ever-threatening welfare state. In his Collected Works Gandhi said the following in 1947:

"I look upon an increase of the power of the state with the greatest fear, because although while apparently doing good by minimizing exploitation, it does the greatest harm to mankind by destroying individuality, which lies at the root of all progress. We know of so many cases where men have adopted trusteeship, but none where the State has really lived for the poor."

Gandhi was so concerned about the threat that state directed handouts posed to one's path to self-mastery and self-respect that he, like Plato, saw the nation itself as the individual writ large even in cases of foreign aid:

"If America tries to win friendship of other countries with the help of her money ... both will come to grief. That is why I have been daily telling Rajendra Babu [the first president of India] that import of foodgrains is the worst kind of slavery. There is nothing more degrading for a country than to beg from others when it cannot meet its requirements."

Pass around and ask others to do same. We are in a lot of trouble if Barack wins. His 47% have succeeded in canvassing 5 times as many Democrat absentee votes compared to Republicans in Iowa.

It could be that Republicans don't trust US Postal Service. Show up to vote early for ROMNEY!

To entice the ghetto crowd and all who managed to attend school under affirmative action, Barrack HUSSEIN Obama has given EVERYONE of them a free high-priced smart i-phones phones with unlimited usage.

This means that every ghetto dweller over the age of 12 will have one of these phones.
Many of the moms have up to 12 kids (from various sperm donors).

YOU ARE BEING TAXED OVER 9 BILLION DOLLARS FOR THIS WASTE !!!

Furthermore, he is giving every ghetto family and affirmative action recipient their choice of a laptop or a PC and free service.

THIS IS ANOTHER 20 BILLION DOLLARS OF YOUR TAXES WASTED.

The ghetto crowd does not care what happens to this country, as long as they get freebees FROM TAX PAYERS.
.

********* REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER **********

Barrack HUSSEIN Obama is a racist from the begining.

ALSO:

1- When you think of 9/11, think of muslims.
2- When you think of muslims, think of 9/11,
3- When you think of muslims Barrack HUSSEIN Obama, think of 1 & 2.

- Remember also SEAL Team 6 who died because HUSSEIN wanted them to fly on a helicopter which was not designed for their mission.
- The Fort Hood TX jihad mass murder spree, where a fellow muslim HASAN killed dozens of American soldiers and wounded dozens more.
HUSSEIN Obama has given HASAN retirement pay of $4,800 per month, for life.
AND, he was flown back to his native terrorist country.- ALL AT YOUR EXPENSE.

Thanks the Lord for the great patriotic brilliant VP to be Paul Ryan who already is training in crushing the empty suit Biden who will deliver gaffe after gaffe, lie after lie to the American people who know better than believe Biden. Paul Ryan is great congressman who remembers all the details about US economy and national security and he will take the time to teach the delusional Biden who does not have a clue after 4 years in the failed Obama regime with forty Maoist and socialistic pro-Iranian czars. It is time for the American people to see the emptiness of the worst VP in US history Biden who pushed America over the cliff as ordered by the Mozlem Brother Messiah Barack Hussein Obama.

The Emperor Obama is naked has no clothes while the coming debate will show Obama as the bluf empty suit of America who was able to fool the ignorant Americans during four years. The Democratic Party knows well that Obama is clueless without the teleprompter that tells him what to say and that Mitt Romney knows the details about American economy and national security more that the president who was playing golf, basketball and went on daily trips to nowhere during the recent four years doing nothing other than talking and playing games. Obama will stumble in his responses because he just knows nothing about the American people's business. Mitt Romney learned the details that Obama will never know and his will use his knowledge of the American economy and national security to defeat Obama for once and for all. In addition, the faceless reporters of the NY Times, Washington Post, AP and ABC will not be there for Obama during the debate with Romney to cover up his failures.

No Obama/Biden signs in California. A lot of Romney/Ryan signs.

Blue Dog Democrats are voting for Romney. The only trolls with lots of time on their hands, judging every comment, are the ones falling for media lies.

Pat Caddell: Media Have Become an “Enemy of the American people”

Caddell was a former Democrat Pollster.

The Audacity of Corruption

I want to talk about this Libyan thing, because we crossed some lines here. It’s not about politics. First of all we’ve had nine day of lies over what happened because they can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this. Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, were under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.

If a President of either party—I don’t care whether it was Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton or George Bush or Ronald Reagan or George H. W. Bush—had a terrorist incident, and got on an airplane after saying something, and flown off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas, they would have been crucified! It would have been—it should have been the equivalent, for Barack Obama, of George Bush’s “flying over Katrina” moment. But nothing was said at all, and nothing will be said.

It is one thing to bias the news, or have a biased view. It is another thing to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know, and I choose right now, openly, and this is—if I had more time I’d do all the names for it—but The New York Times, The Washington Post, or the most important papers that influence the networks, ABC, NBC, and, to a lesser extent—because CBS has actually been on this story, partly because the President of Libya appeared on [Bob Schieffer’s Face the Nation] and said, on Sunday, while [U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.] Susan Rice was out—the U.N. Ambassador has no portfolio on this matter—lying, said of the Secretary—you know why, notice the Secretary of State wasn’t out there doing this—was on national television, lying and promoting the White House line while the Libyan President, the very same moment, is saying “This is a premeditated attack.” Nobody has asked that question. This morning—take a look at The New York Times this morning, it’s a minor reference. Oh, now we’ve decided that it was a terrorist incident

These are Americans WAKING UP from Barack and the media's lies, and THEY ARE FURIOUS TOO.

No alternative reality...there are only about 3 rightwing nuts on Topix. They each have half a dozen profiles, making it look like the whole site is filled with Obama haters.

Romney lost any chance he ever had by demonstrating exactly how he feels about the working people of this country. To make such a remark, especially in the company of other rich bitches, shows how tactless and hateful he really is. To paint his face with tanning solution to try to look more Hispanic when speaking to Hispanics, shows what lengths he will go to try to fool people.

I'm not worried about the election anymore. The American people are smart enough to see through Romney. The only Americans he'll be watching out for are the 1%.
