It's a Night to Remember but Not Surrender Thing

Dear America,

so i guess we went with tyranny...good to know.

It's a new day in America, indeed.

Here's some local flavor for you, not that any of you really care -- San Diego elected Bob Filner... a lying, sleazy, dirtbag of a politician and democrat.... for Mayor;  Governor Brown's Prop 30 Tax "for the children" passed; a huge corporate tax increase passed; residents of the city of San Diego also get a property tax increase -- so just in case you haven't been keeping up:  It's tax increases in sales, income and property all up on the day...while the market this morning, oh it's down, beginning with 130 points only twenty minutes into the day.

SO let me get this straight, America -- we have just spent the last four years hating everything Washington is about -- the division, the partisanship, the arrogance over the governed, the cost, the expanse, the growth of entitlement not keeping up with the duty.........and what did we just do?   Ask for more?

Nothing in Washington has changed.  Nothing.

But perhaps more important, we should be asking ourselves what exactly has changed?

I heard from one of my liberal friends in an email -- sent last night right after the big progressive take down -- and he said it's the GOP that has the issues, it's the GOP that has the problem. it's the GOP that doesn't recognize the new America, the new reality, the new normal, the new "demographics". .. Which is truly rich when I also add that he immigrated from India; he got his education here, enjoys his corporate job here, is surrounded by his whole family, who all immigrated here -- except, of course, his beautiful, darling daughter  -- who was lucky enough to be born here.

And all I wanted to do was reach through the world wide web and shake him!

[and how offensive really -- I would never tell my friend he has to change his ideology so that we can all get along...I mean, seriously?  really?  it's up to the GOP, and conservatives far and wide, to change 200 years of operation going against every fiber of our being? really?]

Earth to ALL Americans -- and especially to my good friend, and especially to those who choose to come here......America has always been a country of IMMIGRANTS; that is who we are!  The very idea of it -- the folklore of America being the "melting pot" -- it isn't some kind of sweet sentiment made up for the history books; it's a real thing!

True story:  Once upon a time, America was designed from it's inception to melt into one body, one culture, one nation.  And we all lived happily ever after.

We must fight for the one and only demographic that truly matters here -- American -- that's it.  Yes, the revolutionary war was hard; but ironically, it's the keeping of the republic that will have to endure the longest, greatest battle.  And I got news for you:  this fight will never be over as long as this planet continues to produce humanity and the immeasurable weaknesses and faults that come with it.

When it comes to immigration, my good friend and his family did everything right -- they are a strong family unit, they are people of faith, they work hard, pay taxes, give back to those in need.  They are a caring, loving, thoughtful family who came to America on a path of opportunity, education and ultimately, a citizenship.  They are exemplary in every way;  I truly believe they are genuinely proud to be Americans, because it shows.

The question we should be asking ourselves is what exactly has changed in the caliber  and intention of the immigrant of yesteryear, as compared to the immigrant of today?  What we should be wondering is why the democrats continue to win elections by a divide and conquer agenda, pitting one demographic against another, on purpose, for power?

THE GOP does not need to change -- how absurd!   These days, it's as close as we get to the principles set forth by our founders.  While it's ideology  -- which seems greatly misunderstood upon morning light -- is not about what separates us, it's about what unites. It's about smaller government, and the individual having more freedom and personal power, not less.

THE GOP is about big ideas, not petty differences staged by demographics and placards and binders and big bird --  forcing the have's against the have not's, and audaciously punishing the job creators while rewarding mediocrity and entitlement.

Once the aftershock wears off from last night, what this tells me is we... as a whole ...and not just the GOP -- have work to do as a country.

Contrary to the recommendations of my well-meaning friend, the GOP has their work cut out for them NOT in the changing of who we are and what we stand for, but in living the example; for we can credit the conservative foundation being responsible for creating the very conditions for prosperity and happiness for the most people, leading generations into wealth, property, and security.

America's future rests in it's ability to remind the electorate what one body working in unison for the betterment of the whole really looks like, acts like, moves like.

So with this newfound president, the one who really, really intends to work across the aisle now -- is he really planning on coming to meet the GOP in the middle -- or like my friend believes, does this just embolden him to force the GOP to change?   Why does it always seem like in order to find a compromise with the left  it just means that the right must bend over?

Is the president planning on resurrecting the Keystone Pipeline?
Do the coal miners in Pennsylvania get to keep their jobs?
Are defense contractor jobs in Virginia safe for another four more years?
Will Jeeps still be made in Toledo?

When do we find out the truth in Benghazi, considering this president was buoyed to re-election on make-believe context, lies and videotape?

I wonder what Bibi thinks about this brand new day?

Will the president finally return to the recommendations of his Fiscal Commission from Bowles/Simpson?

Hmmm I wonder what we, the people, will think about Obamacare in the year 2014 when all the requirements kick in?

I wonder if he will continue using Executive Order, sidestepping congress, to effect change?

Will we ever see welfare entitlement reformed?  Will our unfunded liabilities totaling trillions of dollars -- the Medicare/Medicaid and the Social Security ponzi scheme --  be saved from bankruptcy?  If Obama added six trillion in debt in four years, just what will he add in eight?

So how much is enough -- in taxes?   Will the IRS be fixed, will we simplify the tax code?

Will the president finally let ALL children have school choice -- prioritizing a child's education over the unions?

Oh so many questions, so little time.

Since we seem to be at war with ourselves, let me plug a favorite line from Winston Churchill --

"Socialism is 
a philosophy of failure, 
the creed of ignorance, 
and the gospel of envy; 
it's inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."

From the president's acceptance speech:

"What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth.

The belief that our destiny is shared; that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations.  The freedom which so many Americans have fought for and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights.

And among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism.  That's what makes America great."

I ask the president -- do you understand what you just said and more important, truly believe it, embrace it, to the extent that you can teach the American people to fully embrace it too?

The president talked for twenty minutes last night.  It all sounded pretty good.

Here's more:

"America, I believe we can build on the progress we've made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class.  I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love.  It doesn't matter whether you're black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you're willing to try.

I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests.  We're not as cynical as the pundits believe.  We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states.  We are and forever will be the United States of America."
Isn't this is how you came into office four years ago?

Earth to a president without a people's mandate -- when you say 
"I believe we can keep the promise of our founders" 
I have a hard time believing you.
Do you even know what this means, or is this just what you say when it is written on your teleprompter?  

Oh right...

You do amaze me,  keeping the promise of our founders.... THAT is a good one. 
You are a so-called expert on the Constitution, while you have governed in every which way to Sunday against it ....as you stand there... accepting another four years to bring whatever is left of it to utter ruin -- and you say,  "I believe we can keep the promise of our founders?"  with a straight face....wow, you are good, you are good.

And telling people "if you are willing to work hard...."  seriously?   You don't really believe that, either.
"It doesn't matter whether you're black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you're willing to try."

You're right, it doesn't matter; so why on earth do you govern like it does?   And worse, how can you use people by demographic, enticing them by false promises, character assassination of your opponent, and a false sense of security in a government that runs counter-productive to creating a healthy, wealthy, happy life all along?

No, Mr. President, unless you are living in your own little bubble, we are "as divided as our politics suggests."   And it's NOT out of racism or bigotry or a prejudice we were born with -- it's because the divide is a giant chasm.  It's an American-style abyss that has no end and has turned us against each other because of our bi-polar visions for America.  Our founders must be rolling over in their graves wondering what in the world has happened to us.

True friends tell each other the truth.   True countrymen who truly want what is best for ALL countrymen stand firm in self-reliance, affirming limited government and the full measure of unlimited freedom in the individual, and the unwavering belief in the Divine Providence that made us; that's what our homegrown politics suggests, and that's what this is all about.  And that's why the GOP -- conservatives, tea party,  republicans -- will not change and should not have to!  If anything, we can see our shortcomings and know exactly where we need to be stronger.

It's called being a patriot in the year 2012. 

And the funny thing is -- when listening to our president, one would think he is a conservative, too, with the way he sounds, with the words he chooses, with the multitude of American principles in which he preaches.

This is a sad day in American history.  My heart aches for each and every one of us living in this fraudulent American dream.    It's become a sham; every living, breathing, organized, hard-working detail of our life has suddenly met with chaos.   What was up, is down; what is right, is wrong.

The biggest fraud is the relationship between the democratic party and the "demographics"  drawn to it.  What does the party  really do for the African-American, the Hispanic, the down-trodden?  If anything, the party that breeds capitalists and money makers and entrepreneurs.... the party that embraces family values and faith.... the party that believes in the words of our Constitution and Declaration of Independence through and through....the party that was created by the anti-slavery activists of yesteryear, for Pete's sake! -- is of no relation to the democratic party.   It's grand; it goes way back -- and it's got a name, the Grand Old Party.   

And those of us in it will fight for our right to believe in it.  We have rights, too; we have freedom of speech too; we have our religion, too.

But let's get back to where this all began in this day in the life in America -- it's the body demographic that needs to recognize how THEY have let America down; it is the body demographic that is choosing not to melt into one [which is funny, given their position on global warming]. 

But don't take it from me, little g -- even the president agrees:

"The freedom which so many Americans have fought for and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights.

And among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism.  That's what makes America great."

About last night:   It's a night to remember but not surrender, that is an absolute.

We, Americans, sign on to a lifelong duty to America first -- whether we are born here or choose to come here looking for a better life.  America was designed to melt into one body, one culture, one nation under God.  It's the American culture that needs a course correction, not the GOP, not the conservatives.  And we will be happy to talk about it with any liberal all the live long day.  [But more on that in the days to come]

 Make it a Good Day, G
