Sobering Post Holiday Thought: Obama's Success in Weakening Americans Belief in Exceptionalism

FT_GOP_Greatest

If Americans end up thinking we are no better than the rest of the world, we soon will be!

You look around the world at all the trouble: invasions, wars, tyranny and disasters of every sort both man made and natural and thank God you live in America where we enjoy such freedom and a high standard of living and relative social calm. Americans used to think we were exceptional and our national Independence → Read More

Obama’s Fundamental Transformation Of America

Barack Obama

Do you remember the statement made by candidate Barack Obama in the waning days of the 2008 presidential election? He told us, in vague terms, what he planned to do.

Now, Mizzou, I just have two words for you tonight: five days. Five days. After decades of broken politics in Washington, and eight years of failed policies from George W. Bush, and 21 months of a campaign that’s taken us from the rocky coast → Read More

This Is Not Allstate And America Is Not In Good Hands

Not in good hands

There is much to write about this morning. So many things going on and so little time to discuss them before work. We have another shooting at Fort Hood. Mozilla’s CEO was forced to step down because he donated to the campaign against homosexual marriage in California. The former deputy director of the CIA has basically admitted to Congress that he toned down, tampered with, and otherwise withheld pertinent information about the attack in → Read More

Yes, I came from the baby boomer generation – I joined hands with many of my fellow citizens and played around in the sandbox until all of the sand was gone. During my time I was not a willing participant but as the “norm” changed so did I…

25th Anniversary of Reagan Farewell Address a Road Map for Cleaning Up the Obama Mess

images

3 years from now we’ll need a president with vision and a keen sense of American exceptionalism to put the country back together again!

Saturday marked the 25th anniversary of President Reagan’s farewell address to the nation from the Oval Office. Ten days after delivering the address he left office when George H.W. Bush was inaugurated.

The full text of the address is here but I really recommend watching the entire 20 minute speech. → Read More

Income Inequality – Is It Really The Defining Challenge Of Our Time?

Income Inequality

Income inequality is the new phrase President Obama will be focusing on during the last three years of his presidency. We have seen the phrases “war on women” and “wealth redistribution” a lot during his first term in office and we all know he wants to fight climate change of the man-made variety, but he has a new, favorite catch phrase in income inequality. It is certain to catch on with a lot of → Read More

If I Hate America So Much, Why Do I Stay?

america

Since I started blogging and founded Political Realities, I have always tried to listen to points of view that were different from my own. I have had coauthors who were much more liberal than myself and I have allowed many commenters who were more than a little stirred up that I had the audacity to question their liberal leaders. This is especially true since Barack Obama was elected President. He does not like to → Read More

Liberalism vs. Conservatism – What Difference Does It Make?

Liberalism vs. Conservatism

There is a great divide in America. On one side, you have liberalism, voiced by a group of progressive Democrats that believe in greater government control of almost every aspect of our daily lives. On the other, there is conservatism. More and more, conservatism is being voiced by the people who lean more to the libertarian side of the political spectrum. Many of us want nothing more than to be simply left alone. We → Read More

President Obama – Americans And Congress Not Invested In Tough Choices

Obama Snipes

There is a verse in the Bible that shows itself to be true every day. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh. Every once in a while, the truth really does come to light. No matter how well some people try to hide the truth, or the way they really feel, their heart overwhelms their brains and they just blurt it out. Every human being on the planet has been guilty → Read More

The Gods of America’s Demise

Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Kipling penned many of the most inspirational works of my formative years. Whether it was laughing at the simple “Just So Stories” or learning what makes one a real man in “If…”, I loved it all.

It’s been a long time since I read “The Gods of the Copybook Headings”. Bill Whittle from PJTV recently translated this poem to be more easily understood by modern culture, as some of the references have become → Read More

Why Conservatives Hate Socialism

Socialism

I was prompted to write this post because of a comment that was left on one of my posts on Facebook. The author shall remain nameless, unless he decides to comment on this post. Point blank, he said he did not understand the hatred of socialism in this country. In response to that, I said if he didn’t understand why conservatives hate socialism, then he didn’t truly understand what socialism is all about.

The Voters Who Stayed At Home

I-Voted

Perhaps I should have changed the title of this post to “The Americans Who Stayed At Home”. That’s really where this all lies. In the aftermath of the election, I was reading some posts on Facebook and came across one from someone I am related to. He and his wife shall remain nameless, but what they posted troubled me greatly. They basically congratulated President Obama for his victory and then wrote that they were → Read More
