On a different thread of the RNL, I’ve been having a pleasant chat with my friend, B. Basically, he argues that the candidates are on the same team, and playing the game of “How to fool the American public without really trying”. Wat you say? Have we been Grubered?
Actually, the American public is not that dumb…..which is why the ACA bill had to be passed by a Democrat-only senate, and why a Democrat president had to unconstitutionally allow five million illegal immigrants into this country.
As liberal as Bush was, the reality is that he took his progressivism in baby steps. Obama, on the other hand, is more akin to the frat boy who smokes a joint, burns down the frat house, and plays a round of golf to reminisce on his night’s chivalrous (in his mind) revelries.
In other words, if you can’t find your hero, find the one that’s closer to where your hero will lie. I do not believe voting for Hillary over Ben Carson will bring you closer to that goal, as she is the female version of Obama .
Is Carson Reagan? Nope. Reagan was Reagan. See here: At this point in history, aside from a revolution, we must all take sides. If you side with Hillary over Carson, I will deem you foolish……..and then I’ll have you committed.
Tonight I had the boys watch a show with me called the Gifted Hands. This is a 2009 movie on Ben Carson. This show is on the youtube, so it is free. What the Chuck? #truth
Do me the kindness of taking the time to learn a bit about a fella who is running against Regina George, er, Hillary Clinton in 2016.

I know this is Kells’s post, but I am going to take advantage of my editorial privileges to respond to here here, in the main body of her post. I think it will read better that way for anyone who cares to follow this thread.
My point is this: if both Parties keep putting forth candidates (Presidential, Senatorial or Congressional) who advance similar policies and where the only significant difference is how fast the policy is enacted, then yes, I say they are the same Party — because the agenda is the same. It’s not what you say but what you do that matters — especially when it comes to governance. So, looking at what has been done under Democrat and Republican Administrations since Ronald Reagan, I do not see much difference in policy. And this means the Parties are one-in-the-same.
However, Kells thinks the difference is in how fast each Party wants to transform the nation. She sees the Democrats as being the ‘foot-on-the-floor’ Party, so she wants us to all vote for the ‘Sunday-stroll’ Party. The problem with this reasoning is the ‘Sunday-stroll’ Party (i.e. Republicans) is actually the more dangerous arm of the Party. Because the Republicans talk like they are the founders while slow cooking the frogs (that be us, kiddies), they are much more successful than the Democrats are. I mean, seriously, where was the opposition to our wars under Bush? To the expansion of the welfare system? To the growth of government control of our kids? To the opening of our borders? To the increase in government spending? And to the confiscation of our rights (Patriot Act)? Even to the rule of law (TARP)? ALL of these were as ‘Left’ as they can be, yet the ‘Conservatives’ actually rationalized and defended them because ‘their man’ was in office. So, while the Dems pretended to fight the R’s, go back and look: you will find many voted for all of this because they understood it was advancing their agenda, too. And if you doubt me, ask yourself (if you are old enough to remember), “Would Ronnie have supported that?”
This ‘slow boil’ continues today. The R’s have said “NO IMPEACHMENT!” They are going to sue instead. Well, so much for the Constitution (and the R’s claims to being for our founders’ America). The Constitution doesn’t give authority to sue over violations of the Constitution. It provides for impeachment — because they are violations of the law and should be punished as such. So this is an extension of the game. The R’s are talking a good game, but they are walking the PROGRESSIVE game. If you doubt me, ask yourself why the R’s would sue when the whole nation knows the courts belong to the Progressives? And where the judges are not in the Progressive bag, they will use their secrets to blackmail that judge (i.e. Roberts and Obamacare). If you are one who is going to keep falling for this game, then Kells is correct on this point: YES! You have been ‘Grubered’ (ya big dummy).
As for me: I’m no longer insane. I know that doing the same old thing is going to yield the same old result, so I refuse to keep playing the game. You might want to keep playing it, but do me and the rest like me a favor — go play it in another country and take your Progressive playmates with you. None of us want to get drug off the edge of the cliff with you.
REBUTTAL’S REBUTTAL: How very rude and ungentlemanly of you! I suppose all hell would break loose were I to prance upon your posts. Unlike you, I have a sense of decorum. (Deep down I’m slappin your ass and callin you Sally……know that!)
