First Aim With Care - Then Shoot Your Foot

So, it looks like the plan is for all of our Republican candidates to come together and redundantly inform all the presidential television debate viewers how dumb and despicable each are. Then, from this slash and burn stage, one will be left to represent the conservative voters….The plan is working... Everyone is shooting themselves and everyone else in the foot...

Is it possible that all the candidates are so dumb that they are willing to continue to participate in this new Reality TV Show rightly named 'Destroy all Political Conservative Hopes?' Ten more of these 'TV' embarrassments and Obama will not have anyone to run against.

The good thing Newt is seen more and more as the experienced statesman he is….The gap between his understanding and his experience as a political leader and all the others is clearly obvious and somewhat stunning.

In the last article from The Oxford Tea Party we talked about Romney…Started with him because he was leading in the polls. Next man on this totem poll is Herman 999 Cain…

Herman Cain wrote the following in an article. ( I suspect to his regret, last year.)

Here are three of the biggest reasons the national retail sales tax is the worst idea on the table.

First, we have a spending problem in Washington, D.C. not a revenue problem. The Commission claims their goal is to reduce the deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade. The task force says its plan would save $6 trillion by 2020. It’s sort of like dueling promises that would never happen, because when has a proposed cut in Washington D.C. ever produced the intended savings over 10 years? Never!

Even worse is reason number two: In every country that has established a VAT with the promise of reducing their national debt, the VAT has eventually gone up or expanded on top of the existing tax structure. After discovering many of the tax grenades in the recently passed health care deform bill, which is already driving costs up and access down, it would be real easy for an overzealous bureaucrat to insert the language in the legislation “national retail and wholesale” tax.

For the liberal naysayers who say that would not happen, you lose! Just look at the Social Security system, Medicare and Medicaid. Over the years since their inception, taxes have gone up, benefits have gone down and they are still on a path of insolvency.

Both the Commission and the Task Force say very little about how costs would be contained, because that’s the real big bodacious problem. Even if their plans could achieve their stated goals over the next 10 years, the current administration and Congress have increased spending nearly $4 trillion in the last two years. And the only hope that it will slow down is the new change of control in the House of Representatives.

Giving the administration and Congress another tool to tax us and confuse us is like giving an alcoholic a key to the liquor store with no supervision, only to discover that he locks the door after he is safely inside.

A national retail sales tax on top of all the confusing and unfair taxes we have today is insane! It gives the out-of-control bureaucrats and politicians in denial one more tool to lie, deceive, manipulate and destroy this country.

The third reason the national retail sales tax on top of all the taxes we already pay is a bad idea, is that there is already proposed legislation that replaces all of the federal taxes we pay. It replaces all current revenue. It supercharges our national economic growth, and puts the national economic growth, and puts the power of taxation back into the hands of the people who spend their money.

Thanks Herman…We think so also…Can we now put aside the 999 notions for good?

Last night in the 'debate' everyone pretty much lambasted Herman's '999' plan and him with it. Lots of good qualities in this man. However, the issue in not 'is he a good man that has contributed and will continue to contribute to this nation' but is he experienced and knowledgably enough to lead the most powerful nation in the history of the world? (We know what lack of experience can mean because we have such a man in office now. ) As we each do our emotional soul searching about Herman I think we will be able to answer the above question.

We will continue to look at the other candidates in upcoming articles but for the moment and if common sense was at work, a number of these 'want-to-be' would pack it up….Its hard not to love Ron Paul but he will never be the president of this country or its vice president. He knows it and we know it…With Rick just remember, he was turned out of office for a reason and his appearances in the staged debacles remind us of 'why.'

In dark moments, every now and then, I wonder how it's possible with 300 million people we can't find many (sometimes I wonder IF any) leaders. Now more than any time in our history there are more opportunities for people to develop leadership skills. This make no sense. Could it be that the potential leaders are out there somewhere hidden in a sea of faces being confused as just the person who lives next door?

Not every small business man is a leader but every small business man leads…Here is the most untapped leadership group in America. This group is in daily touch with the customers he/she serves. He/she know if they do not respond to the heart beat of the people the business serves they will have 'no business.' This is the group that hires and fires most workers in America. They are the core of our GDP. They are the little-shots not the big-shots. The Presidents of GE, or Ford, or ATT have seldom, if ever, looked a customer in the eye and yet they are the very people called on by each and every government for advice on how to fix this or that in the economy. The elite, and elitist in government, by ignorance and default, are destroying everything this nation has been.

Also, in dark moment I begin to wonder just how much damage is done each and everyday by the two national parties. Clearly more citizens are responding by becoming independent. These are the folks who do not trust these national parties any longer. The backlash from their departing is they leave the national party leaders with a greater steadfast group within their parties and control over who runs for office becomes easier. This does not give them control over election outcomes but allows them to keep their power which is the purpose of power.

"If ever a time should come when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." …….Samuel Adams, 1776 ...........

We are not in a vacuum, nor in the doldrums, nor in a slow recovery. This is a full blown crisis. The downside, if we have reached the downside, is really dangerous. The upside is (historically) only when there is a crisis do we make changes.

What the Tea Party and its supporters are doing is addressing changes from the local school board level to the presidential level. That is a huge bite. Mostly this looks doable BUT not without more help. There is an important group of voter from 18 to 34 who are as enamored with the current President as they were when they attended his campaign shows. They have money to contribute and they have friends they can sway. How to reach them…..? Next big group of needed voters are young people in college… This group has been talked about before. (AND probably again). This is the group that will be forced to spend most of their working lives paying off these unthinkable national debts, if they can be paid off at all. This group, although literate in math don't understand the national debt math. The way you know this group doesn't understand what this President and government has done and continues to do is because you are not seeing them, in Washington, tearing down the House and Senate buildings.

Some Tea Party groups are forming on campuses but not nearly enough. We need to find ways to support them…We must…. They are the very people who will be needed to continue the Tea Party movement. What a different country this might be had we, when we were their age, had the Tea movement and at least one national media supporting the conservative ideas.

The last election cycle was a success for us. We came up a little short on the Senate side. It will difficult, no doubt, but the Senate look possible the next go around. The other big problem is we have to elect even more new members in the House to overcome the old Republican guard. Who knew? Who would have guessed the real struggle in the House would be the entrenched Republicans in the house.

The media says the Tea Party is racist because it is predominantly white. Last time I noticed America was predominantly white. I expect the Black Congressional caucus is made up of black congress people. I expect a Hispanic group to be made up mostly of Hispanic people. As a percentage of the population the Tea Party seems to have, more or less, members who reflect these minority groups as a percentage. So the question might be do I/we care what the liberal media says? The elite in the media see the world out of their beliefs and biases. I know their primary bias is that the Tea members are dumb rednecks who they dare not trust. Seems right because we don't trust them. End of story….

If we need any other reasons to work as hard as we can on the election that is now only eleven months away here is another reason: In 2041 your children's children will look around thirty nine years from now and notice that white folks like themselves will not be the dominate race in America. People who have never lived in California, Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico have no real way of imagining this nor any idea of the consequence. (Look closely at California, its state government, and the consequence of the changing demographics. Google search the list of name in the California House.)

Richard  Alatorre,  Los Angeles City Council. "They're  afraid we're going to take over the governmental  institutions and other institutions.  They're right.  We will take them over . . . We are here to  stay." 

Excelsior, the national  newspaper of  Mexico , "The American Southwest seems to  be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of  Mexico  without firing a single shot." 

Professor  Jose Angel Gutierrez,  University of   Texas ; "We have an aging white  America .  They  are not making babies.  They are dying.  The  explosion is in our population . . . I love it. 

Art Torres, Chairman of the  California Democratic Party, "Remember 187--proposition to  deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens--was the  last gasp of white  America in  California   ." 

Gloria Molina, Los Angeles  County Supervisor, "We are politicizing every single one of  these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this  country . . ... I gotta tell you that a lot of people are  saying, "I'm going to go out there and vote because I want  to pay them back." 

Mario Obledo,  California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and  California State Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare  under Governor Jerry Brown, also awarded the Presidential  Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton, "   California is going to be a Hispanic state.  Anyone who  doesn't like it should leave." 

Jose  Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General, "We are  practicing 'La Reconquista' in  California  ..." 

Professor Fernando  Guerra,  Loyola  Marymount   University ; "We need to avoid a white backlash by using  codes understood by Latinos . . . " 

In the decades of living in California my wife and I experienced this demographics shift and began to see the consequences before we left the state. Many of these Hispanic leaders quoted we watched organize and work their way up the political ranks….These quoted statements tell a story that needs to be heard and the emotional content of the quotes needs to be understood by all quickly. California didn't listen. It expanded liberal social programs, embraced all who crossed it's boarder, and refused to see the warning signs.

Complaints about Hispanics first surfaced in the boarder states and now has now spread to many other states. The complaints, for the most part, has focused on jobs, cost of education, social programs, etc. It's not just Hispanics there are other complaints starting with other minorities groups such as Muslim, Korean, along with other immigrants we have let in for one reason or another. All of these groups are out growing the local white population in their communities. Farther down the road the real problem is taking shape. Seismic shifts in demographics that will become fatal to this or any other representative form of government anywhere. Ask any European country what is their experience. Ask France with a reported twenty two percent of Muslim immigrants. Paris has given up policing some parts of their city. Sections of London are gone to immigrants areas. Enough said for the moment….

Can you imagine how the country, government, or liberal media would have responded if anyone in the Tea Party said anything like what these Hispanic leaders said in California?

Let me leave you with these thoughts of the day from Thomas Sowell...

Like so many other leaders, in so many countries, who start out to "spread the wealth, Barack Obama has ended up spreading poverty.

Most of us lament the fact that so many people are today dependent on food stamps and other government subsidies. But dependency usually translates into votes for whoever is handing out the benefits, so an economic disaster can be a political bonanza, as it was for Franklin Roosevelt. Don't count Obama out in 2012.

If he was debating Barack Obama, Newt Gingrich could chew him up and spit him out...

Thomas Sowell is one of a number of conservative black writers (there aren't many) that I always enjoy reading and particularly Sowell's 'Thoughts of the Day.'
Go to the Hoover Institute site and you can find lots of his writings.

I think his warning about Obama in 2012 needs to be taken very seriously.

Read the warning signs of the demographic shift taking afraid for our grandchildren.
