Who Cares Wins
It’s been a bit since I’ve come up with some original content. Not that it matters, I more so do it for my own satisfaction but certainly welcome anyone to read and would love a meaningful debate. That is, if you can find a point I make debatable. Not that I believe I’m always right, it’s just that I base most of my opinions on fact and observations of what is, through independent goggles, void of any political bias. Naturally, I challenge anyone to debate anything I write and/or say. I most certainly could have been privy to the wrong facts or false data and welcome correction. Sorry for the length…
We are fast approaching November 6, in fact, it’s one week from today. We will likely know by the end of the evening who the next president will be. While I am ironically hoping for change, it is a near 100% certainty I won’t get it. Of course, I’m referencing the fact that it really matters little whether the surname after “President” is Obama or Romney- I do believe we are equally screwed. I will invite you to listen to Dan Carlin’s latest Common Sense podcast, titled “Losing to Win”. He’s made the very same argument, to a much larger audience mind you, that I’ve made previously and will reference here again. In this podcast, however, he explains a bit of history behind the “losing” party and some recent paradigm shifts resulting. The purpose of bringing up Common Sense once again is that Mr Carlin uses a great line when talking about voters’ issues. See, we all have a priority list when it comes to the candidate we think best to run the executive. For conservatives it may be cutting entitlements, repealing Obamacare, or bombing Iran. For liberals it may be abortion rights, increased nanny state, or bombing Iran. I would argue, as Mr Carlin mentions, what good is having the right (on paper) to get an abortion when we’re living in a totalitarian United States? Who gives a shit what type of healthcare we have when we are in a state of perpetual war and have lost all of our personal liberties? If you think we are not barreling down this road to totalitarianism, at an alarming speed, you are either an imbecile or you need to wake up, but either way you are part of the problem. Here is a post I wrote referencing Naomi Wolf’s 10-step fascist shift from March 30.
Now, let me make a case for a Mitt Romney presidential win in two simple steps. First and foremost, when he crashes head on into the totalitarianism I mentioned above, I want to personally laugh in every republican’s mug. I will point too! I will point and laugh and tell them I told you so. Naturally, they’re response will be something eerily similar to the “well look what he inherited” bit. Regardless, one point I’ve made over the past couple years was about precedence. It’s been laughable to hear the liberals defend Mr Obama’s egregious constitutional offenses, only to proclaim that he’ll never do what he just passed a law giving him the power to do. In fact, those were his own words! Well, folks, even if he’s already done it/them, it’s largely not about that. It’s about the precedence it sets. Truth be told, I’m not all that worried about Mitt Romney, as a person that is. I am worried to death, however, of his party, one, and two, the people he will put into positions to abuse these newfangled powers Mr Obama has given them. Bush was a goober, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld on the other hand are certifiable criminals. What happens when we have another Cheney or Rumsfeld with the power to persuade another dolt republican president? THAT, is what really scares me.
So back to the point. I was actually pitching for President Romney here! I’ve said it before in a post from August 31 I titled, “Why we’re really screwed” and Mr Carlin mentioned this once again. Simply put, President Romney doesn’t get away scot-free with a fraction of the offenses President Obama has gotten away with. And this, once again, I place full blame on you liberals. You “anti-war” liberals? What a bunch of pussies you are. You liberals who were calling out the Bush administration, calling for impeachment, calling for resignation of cabinet members and officials, where have you been the last four years? You spineless turds! You put on your liberal blue-blockers and turned the other way. Now, with President Romney in charge, and when he appoints a Marco Rubio, or some nut like an Akin or Christie, or (insert a republican here) to high command, you can reap the full benefit of your apathy and silence. And I will point and laugh at you too!
Off on a tangent again… my second point is, is that President Romney will be called out. Every transgression, even if the powers were exclusively granted by the Obama administration, will be highlighted and kept under the microscope of the liberal media. And ultimately, my hope is that we can finally shed some light, on the large, country-wide scale, on the complete dissolution of our constitution that has unfortunately beset us. Largely since 9/11, but this was a path that was paved long before. There were predecessors the Patriot Act and I would even go further, back to Richard Nixon perhaps. Either way, two reasons I want Romney to win: 1.) I get to point and laugh at republicans. 2.) I get to point and laugh at democrats.
Now, I would normally like to counter my points and follow up with a couple reasons to hope for an Obama win. I’ve tried, I swear. I simply cannot muster any ideas. Yes, the overall outcome is the same, continuing down the path to totalitarianism. More war, more debt, more attacks on science, eduction, etc etc, just as we’ll get under a GOP White House. But with four more of President Obama, we also get more silence when all of the above comes about. And that, I’m not willing to consider.
Tell me where I’m wrong. Please.
