A Reluctant, but Conservative Argument for Trump…

I am disappointed.

The debate tonight was horrendous. If it wasn’t for all the fun I was having on Twitter I might even have shut it off.

It seemed very obvious to me who Fox wanted to look good. *cough* Bush *Cough*

But I guess I should have expected that out of them as they are literally the most establishment media source on the right.

What bugged me even more was how much I really enjoyed what Rubio had to say.

Someone has got to get that fool squared away on immigration so I can vote for him because I am sorry but that is a deal breaker.

And Ted… What the fuck Ted… What was that?

Not only did you whine like a bitch… But you acted like an arrogant fool.

YOU AREN’T DONALD TRUMP!

Thats why we all like you. You do not wear arrogance well. That was evident tonight…

Speaking of the Donald…

CAN YOU SAY NAILED IT!?

Well played DT… Well played indeed…

 

Here’s the deal folks:

 

I am about to lay some truth on you so listen up. It is a harsh truth. One I like no more than the rest of you.

TRUMP IS THE BEST CANDIDATE IF HE DOES WHAT HE TELLS US HE PLANS TO!

And that’s the gamble right?

He has a shady record for sure. He’s not a conservative by any means. But he is brilliant and he is a business man.

I don’t want any deals struck with Mitch McConnell or Chuck Schumer. I don’t want deals made with anyone.

What I want is someone like Cruzer who will get up and fight for my principles. But even now… A day and age I thought I’d never see if you had asked me in 2012… Where Ted Cruz is an actual front runner… WE MAY NOT HAVE THAT LUXURY.

 

Our country will not make it through the next presidential term no matter who the president is if we do not get our economy under control and our borders LOCKED THE FUCK UP!

Marco Rubio is soft on immigration = NOT AN OPTION

Ted Cruz not positive can beat Hillary = NOT AN OPTION

Which leaves us with who?

Donald Trump might be the worst president in the history of the United States when it comes to actual conservative principles. But he might be the handful of sand we need to win this boxing match.

I listened to Mark Levin speak all afternoon about how Trump is not a conservative and how low is favorability ratings are and blah blah blah blah blah

“Don’t give up on our guys now!” he says! “Never abandon your principles!” he says!

Yeah Mark… You are right. If nothing else our principles should be the one thing we hold dearest to our hearts and minds.

I should be willing to die for my principles. And I am…

But brother I ain’t in the business of dying.

Especially not when I think we might actually have a shot at turning this thing around. Even if that means voting for someone who is not as principled as we are in order to beat Hillary.

Ted Cruz – Not sure if he can win the primary let alone beat Hillary : NO GO

Donald Trump – Don’t know if I trust him but at least he can win : ….hmmm

A vote for Donald Trump may not be a vote for a principled America.

And it certainly isn’t a vote for a perfect America.

But it is a vote for a surviving America.

Every now and again you have got to throw a hand full of sand to win the fight even though it goes against your principles. Every now and then you have to go against your principles in order to save them.

Donald Trump may ruin this country.

But his tax plan and immigration policies alone will turn the economy around in the blink of an eye.

Can we trust him to follow through? I don’t know.

But in a country where to this day the majority of people in America DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO TED CRUZ IS!!!

…I’ll take my chances with the big name.

Thoughts: The conversation we should be having…

For a long time I have been a fan of Glenn Beck.

I grew up watching him on the TV long before The Blaze.

Even when The Blaze began, I remember the early days when he discussed policy and politics. He still does this today but the primary meat of his show has changed.

When he made the change I wasn’t ready to accept it.

I called him a fool and I diverted my eyes for a while out of anger. Anger because I felt abondoned by someone who shared my frustration with the freedom snatching left.

I have begun to watch him again purely out of depression. With all of the darkness in our world, his network offers a slightly more positive viewing experience. Something I need if I am to be happy as I am morally obligated.

However I still hadn’t accepted his message. The notion that we need to be having a conversation about culture and faith rather than one about politics and policy.

That is until Monday.

As I watched the riots take place on the streets of Baltimore I thought to myself “when did America become a third world country.” I chuckled a bit at the fact that the riots were a perfect illustration of why leftist policies fail.

But then I thought a little bit harder.

I realized that the riots were not a result of the policies, but that the policies were a result of the riots.

In other words, the behavior seen in the streets of Baltimore last night is behavior that I personally do not believe would be seen anywhere that true Americans are present.

What I am about to tell you is a bit simplistic, and I realize that. Many of these issues are far more complicated than just culture v.s. policy. However for the sake of our efforts, as conservatives with an outreach mentality, maybe it would be beneficial to take a look at the simplistic concept.

I had a conversation earlier today with a fellow conservative. He’s a good friend of mine, and had responded to my last post via email.

We began to debate a little. This is something that we do often. However, usually one of us is playing devils advocate. Rarely ever do we actually disagree.

He believes that it is leftist policy that is solely responsible for the behavior of those in Baltimore. I believe it’s something deeper (and no it’s not skin color so don’t go calling Uncle Al just yet.)

Halfway through our debate I realized that the entire reason we disagreed lie in the fact that we had a miss communication due to the verbiage that I used in my post.

The verbiage you ask?

The word Americanism.

You see I believe that Americanism can be summed up by one simple compound word.

“Judeo-Christian”

The behavior seen in Baltimore lacks any Judeo-Christian backing. It’s as if those people do not have any values beyond hedonistic natural instinct.

Interestingly enough, leftist policy lacks a Judeo-Christian value backing as well.

And though us Judeo-Christians like to give the masses the benefit of the doubt so often in saying that “they just don’t get it!” I believe they do.

It does not take a rocket scientist or any deep level of thinking to see that leftist policies are not only ineffective, they are immoral.

I contend that the liberal masses know this, and do not care.

During our debate, my friend posed to me a question. First, he laid out a scenario that he believes to be a somewhat accurate representation of what life is like in Baltimore. He asked me if I honestly believed that I wouldn’t act violently towards the Gov. if put in a situation like this.

Now I have not given you all of the details that my friend provided me within his premise. I have given you one though, and if you have keen enough eyes you will see it.

I believe this to be a false analogy. And that one detail I provided is exactly the reason why.

He then described some of the circumstances that lead the people in that area to the mindset that they posses.

Things like horrifyingly bureaucratic public schools.

And fatherhood being crushed by government dependent.

I do not deny that any of these things exist. And I do believe that there is a case to be made in regards to these things perpetuating the sickness that is present in places like Baltimore.

However they did not cause the sickness.

In other words bad schools do not create bad/indoctrinated children.

Bad parents do.

Government dependency does not produce fatherless children.

Premarital sex and poor spouse selections do.

No-fault divorces do not produce evil women that screw their men over.

Evil women create things like no-fault divorces.

So while a case can be made in regards to the perpetuation of certain behaviors by government dependency and leftist policy, I wonder if this is the correct conversation to be having.

I find myself thinking that it is not.

Maybe GB is right. Maybe we don’t win this through elections or policy.

Maybe the the only way to win this is through evangelism (or things of that nature.)

I wrote last night about MLK’s intentions being made clear through his actions. I think that we can all agree, the action of those in Baltimore last night were made loud and clear.

Morality, and therefore Americanism were nowhere to be found.

Marriage v. Preferred Adult Relationships

I am typically not one to get into it over gay marriage. I don’t believe the state should be involved in marriage at all so whether or not it is legal for two men get hitched matters very little to me.

However, the redefinition of words… Now that pisses me off.

Marriage is between a man and a woman. There is documentation backing this statement that dates back to more than 2,000 years ago!

Anything besides one man and one woman is an “adult relationship.”

two men = adult relationship

two women = adult relationship

two men one woman = adult relationship

two women one man = adult relationship

two women and Hillary Clinton = one really f*cked up adult relationship

sexual relationships involving four people = adult relationships

Any sort of relationship that is not a union of sexually complimentary spouses is not a marriage.

Check this video out for some more insight into why equality is the most important thing to straight conservatives. I know it’s crazy right? We aren’t all evil! Who’d a thunk it!?

To the American Right Wingers who hate the Ganja

There are many things to consider when discussing the legalization of marijuana. Things such as use behind the wheel and our new semi-socialized healthcare system.

But none of these things matter.

Pot does not matter.

There are far too many other important things to be discussing at the moment, such as the crisis in the middle east, the healthcare gov. monopoly, or even illegal immigration.

And yet all too often I find that the conservative mainstream media makes it a topic of discussion.

I find myself screaming at that pompous ass Bill O’reilly at least once a week because he does a segment on pot.

I understand that he is one of the most watched cable news figures, I also understand that the majority of his audience are those of 50 years or more.

However, just because young people aren’t tuning in to your show, doesn’t mean they don’t hear what you are saying. (Media Matters has Twit Game)

And the minute you crusade against pot, you effectively tear the right wing of America in half. Because while many, definitely not most but many, would agree with you Bill some don’t. And those who don’t we can’t afford to have turned against us.

I am not saying those who are fiscal conservatives and like to rip bongs are going to start subscribing to commie bull because you said you don’t like weed.

No, not at all…

What I am saying is there are stoner, libertarian, fiscally conservatives folks who have never given politics a thought at all until now, and we need their vote.

Pot has been around for a really long time, and legal or illegal, it’s here to stay. So please for the love of God, pull your head out of your old saggy ass and avoid the topic. Please.

In a perfect world, a Reagan America, we could afford to have these discussions, but not today.

If you think that bipartisanship is a good thing… You are a silly goose!

There was a time in this country when the constitution meant something.

A time when people valued the republic. 

A time when people had convictions.

A time when men and women worked hard and fought everyday for a better life for their offspring.

A time when men and women only gave up their freedom by way of a lead slug through flesh.

It was a time when debate took place in the political game.

This was a long long time ago, in a galaxy one could only assume was far away.

Unfortunately it wasn’t so far away. Only unfortunate in the sense that as a fact, that statement is an admission of our loss.

That time has not faded away. That value did not just disappear.

It was engineered out of the system entirely by progressives. (Satan’s army)

We live in a day and age where political debate does not exist. Instead, we have political war.

There is no longer any common ground to stand on in this country, and so by default civilized debate cannot take place.

We are a country of two, completely different, conflicting ideologies. Those who do, and those who want to thieve from those who do. We have those who want to be left alone, and those who want to control. We have ignorance and indoctrination.

No longer do we vote on social issues as was intended. No longer does the area immediately around you reflect your views as was intended. No longer does the federal government occupy three very specific duties and only those three specific duties as was intended.

We live in a democracy… A place where anything goes…

The Constitutional Republic we once lived in is gone…

And so when someone mentions bipartisanship to me, I redden with anger.

Bipartisanship is not a good thing, why on earth would I ever want someone representing me to compromise on any of the values I based my vote upon? Why on earth would I want him/her to reach across the isle?

I want the politician that throws the middle finger up all day everyday across that isle, and fights tooth and nail against every single thing that comes across his desk that is not constitutionally legal. I want the politician that stands up, sticks his finger in the chest of each progressive in the room, and makes them aware of their lack of soul.

I want a politician that make life on Capital Hill a living frigging hell every day of the week, so that I don’t have to myself.

Bipartisanship can kiss my CONSTITUTIONAL ASS!

Are politicians evil? Or are you just stupid?

The notion that politicians are evil is a notion I hate.

Politicians only tell you what you want to hear.

I pretty much try to remain as secular as possible on this blog because I know how it feels to be preached at. This topic however clearly demands for a definition of right and wrong.

First off, there is no such thing as right and wrong unless you can accept the existence of a higher power.

If you are willing to do so then okay, maybe there is an argument to be made for the corruption and the lying that goes on in politics. That is an absolutely pointless and ignorant conversation to have though.

The fact is that corruption and deceit exist, and they aren’t going anywhere any time soon.

So the next time you get it rammed up your ass by a politician, take a step back and think, “Why didn’t I see this coming?”

IT IS OUR DUTY AS CITIZENS OF THIS CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC TO KNOW WHO THE CANDIDATES ARE!

This means how they vote, who they talk to, who donates to them, and what their proposed policies are.

WE ARE THEN TO VOTE ACCORDINGLY WITH WHAT WE BELIEVE!

We have to critically analyze not only who are candidates are as people, but also the things they propose we do. Politicians want to be elected, so all of the things they say are going to be things that sound nice. Your job is to decide if the things they say make sense.

And when you fail to do so, you deserve the consequences.

Realize that all the warm and fuzzy lies they tell us, are a direct result of our ignorance and selfishness.

Tell me in the comments if you believe it is more complicated than that.

Can I have the attention of all you baby murdering, smack shooting, capitalists out there? STFU this election!!!

Earlier today I was reading Ann Coulter’s column (damn, I wish she was younger). In today’s column she talked about how young people never change, and if I understood the piece correctly, how we as conservatives need to adapt to that.

The point here is this, when wolves try to take down an elk, the pack works their way around the herd, and splits them up, making them weaker and more vulnerable.

Progressives do the same thing.

They have the conservatives of America at each others throats over trivial things. Things like the legalization of drugs and abortion. Social issues.

All these things do is make us weaker, and while I know it hurts, we need to look past these social issues, and see the big picture.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Earlier this week I had a friend ask me if I considered myself a libertarian or a conservative, and I told him neither. I told him that I am a traditional liberal. He was puzzled at this, and asked me how that could be, and so I explained…

We live in a constitutional republic. Period. That is a fact, a fact that has been, and is being ignored daily in our country. This is not a democracy. The only time one could use the word “democracy” to describe what we have, is right after the word “representative” and even then, this phrase is only properly used when discussing how we legislate.

We are a constitutional republic founded on economic and moral principles that our founding fathers put in ink for us during the framing of this great nation. They were things to be accepted, they were the platform of common ground for which we could stand upon during debate.

These principles where never intended to be questioned, for if they were the entire system would collapse. Much like the physical world would if the laws of physics were inconsistent.

It does not matter what the issues of debate are, debate cannot take place, without an established common ground by both parties.

If one is to discuss ethics/morals, one has to decide who’s ethics or morals will define right and wrong before approaching an issue in this area.

If one is to debate the best way to solve a problem, one must first establish that both parties agree there is a problem and that it does in fact need fixing.

This is why our constitutional republic has been so effective for so many years.

but things have changed…

There is a two party system (which is a fact of any effective system btw so stop bitching!)

and within this two party system the American public must choose between the lesser of two evil’s…

Only these days our common ground is being questioned…

Though unfortunate, it is logically simple.

Therefore by today’s standards I do not get to be a liberal. I call my self a constitutional conservative, and will vote for the republican candidate in 2016.

…And no, that candidate will not be perfect. In fact, he or she (though I really hope its he) will more than likely be very flawed. Hell, this candidate might even be a socialist, a RINO.

But we need to take this country back, and make it great as it once was, and electing republicans is the first step in doing so.

I want to take this country back to the days when I would have had the luxury of calling myself a liberal. When in my own, young, inexperienced opinion, I could fight with the old timers about social issues.

We need to establish our constitution once again as the supreme law of the land, and allow ourselves the luxury of debate. Because without common ground, debate is not debate, but rather it is something far more bloody, war.

And so I leave you with a quote from good ol’ Beck

“CAN WE TAKE IT EASY ON THE HEROIN GANG!?”

-Glenn Beck

One step at a time America!

So to all you fiscally conservative college kids out there, who just can’t seem to figure out how a God damn condom goes on, please drop the abortion thing for a while, and focus on the fundamentals in this upcoming election.

Let’s take our common ground back.
