This is why I no longer call myself a Republican

The Republican party has no core values, no core principals and therefore has LOST all meaning, as well as the most recent elections!

The Republican party allows people like Arnold, who believe in gay marriage, abortion, global warming and a whole host of other liberal issues to be in our what makes "us" any different than the Democrats???

This is why we lost in 2006 and it is why we lost again last week!

Until we actually start holding each and EVERY member of the party to the core values that the party was founded upon...NOT just "fiscal conservative" policies...we are going to continue to lose...and for good reason!

This is pathetic...that a leading member of the party is calling on the courts to overturn the will of the people...disgusting!

I won't be giving a dime...or an ounce of my time, to the Republican party until they actually show me that they are serious about returning to and supporting our Founding Fathers vision for this nation!

Oh and you email and phone call to Arnold's office has already been made!!!

Schwarzenegger tells backers of gay marriage: Don't give up
The governor expresses hope that Proposition 8 would be overturned as protesters continue to march outside churches across California.

2:26 PM PST, November 9, 2008

Reporting from Sacramento and Pasadena -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger today expressed hope that the California Supreme Court would overturn Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that outlawed same-sex marriage. He also predicted that the 18,000 gay and lesbian couples who have already married would not be affected by the initiative.

"It's unfortunate, obviously, but it's not the end," Schwarzenegger said in an interview on CNN this morning. "I think that we will again maybe undo that, if the court is willing to do that, and then move forward from there and again lead in that area."

With his favorable comments toward gay marriage, the governor's thinking appears to have evolved on the issue.

In past statements, he has said he personally believes marriage should be between a man and a woman and has rejected legislation authorizing same-sex marriage. Yet he has also said he would not care if same-sex marriage were legal, saying he believed that such an important societal issue should be determined by the voters or the courts.

Following that position, he publicly opposed Proposition 8, which amends the state Constitution to declare that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

Today, Schwarzenegger urged backers of gay marriage to follow the lesson he learned as a bodybuilder trying to lift weights that were too heavy for him at first. "I learned that you should never ever give up. . . . They should never give up. They should be on it and on it until they get it done."

They have the SAME "RIGHTS" as EVERYONE else!!

I am so sick of this nonsense! The homosexual movement here in California has take things way too far! If this ends up in the courts again and is overturned as the ACLU and the homosexuals expect...then I think the rest of us living in CA should take to the streets prepared to riot! We voted, for the THIRD time, that marriage should be protected...its TIME for the homosexual activitists to let this be!

I have been saying for a while, this is not about "fair" or "equal" here in CA we accepted and recognized civil unions, giving each "couple" access to medical benefits, tax right offs, hospital visitation rights and on and on. But that is NOT what these radicals within the gay movement want...they want to DESTROY marriage as we know it! ENOUGH!

They are discriminated against at all...they have the EXACT same "RIGHT" to marry as everyone else. If a man, they can marry one woman....if a woman...they can marry one man, period!

What they want is a "special" state of marriage...a "new" state of marriage and ya know, the simple fact is that marriage was recognized because of one reason the traditional state of marriage PROCREATION can occur, effecting society.

Sorry, but currently two women or two men, can't within their relationship ONLY, produce a child.

Again, these radical activists aren't looking for what's "fair"...they are looking to make THEIR way of life the accepted NORM! They are trying to force their lifestyle choices upon the rest of us, period. If you want to be gay...that's your business....I don't care who you want to sleep with...but when you start trying to ram it down my throat and the throats of my children (public schools have already have had their text books and curiculm changed to teach the gay lifestyle!) their by changing and creating laws to protect your choices...I am going to speak out and I will fight you!

So much for the gay mantra of "compassion and tolerance" for everyone huh? They have NONE if you don't agree with them!!! And they do not respect the voices of the people of this state...who voted against gay marriage...despite the wording of the proposition being changted several times to fit the gay agenda! Read the article!

Gay Marriage Ban Protesters, Police Clash in California Streets

Thousands took to the streets of Los Angeles and San Francisco to protest California's passage of Proposition 8, a ban on gay marriage.

Demonstrators marched Wednesday night through West Hollywood, Hollywood and Santa Monica. Several stopped at busy intersections and blocked traffic, prompting police intervention.
An additional group of about 500 protesters gathered near CNN's Los Angeles bureau, where they were seen banging on the doors and walls.

The demonstrations caused the Los Angeles Police Department to declare a tactical alert — one requiring all available officers, including some from other precincts, to respond.

Television cameras showed one protester jumping on top of a police car at the intersection of Hollywood and Highland avenues. He was quickly wrestled to the ground by police and handcuffed.

Several others were arrested when a group of people broke away from the larger demonstration that began in West Hollywood earlier in the evening.

I hate to say "I told you so," but...

I have been saying for the past 8 months that there was no way that McCain could win this election. That McCain, NEVER should have been allowed to even be a candidate...he's simply too old and his choice of Sarah Palin for VP just demonstrated his lack of judgement.

The question now do the Republicans put up enough strength to STOP Obama? My only hope is that the Republicans in the House and Senate will finally grow some and will actually DO something to block the liberals from furthering their agenda.

Where as, if McCain had won...Republicans would have "worked" with him (and the DEMOCRATS) to move us to the left anyway!

We'll watch the media and see how quickly they change their reporting on the economy...if they start focusing on the war on terror again (I saw the "body count" from Afghanistan scroll across CNN Monday night) and if they will actually start criticizing Obama's every move, as they have done for the past 8 years with President Bush.

Let's review any "bright spots" from the outcome of this election though:

  • Tom McClintock is FINALLY going to be a force on the national scene as he was just elected to the House of Representatives

  • Proposition 8 passed here in CA, which means our state's constitution will be amended, prohibiting gay marriage (although, I am sure that the homosexual agenda will be doing whatever they can to bring this issue back into the courts, as quickly as they can)

  • Proposition 102 in Arizona, which also protects marriage passed - the Arizona constitution will be amended by adding the following wording to the existing section on marriage:
    "Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state"

  • Proposition 2 in Florida, which again, protects and defines marriage as being between one man and one woman, also passed

  • Proposition 11 here in CA passed, which will changes authority for establishing Assembly, Senate, and Board of Equalization district boundaries from elected representatives to 14 member commission

However, in CA Proposition 4 failed...this proposition was created to provide parental notification prior to a minor receiving an was put in place to protect our children. However the people of CA voted against it...instead opting to protect our animals from experiencing discomfort prior to being slaughtered as food! (Proposition 2 - prohibits the confinement of certain farm animals in a manner that does not allow them to turn around freely, lie down, stand up, and fully extend their limbs)

Can you imagine....we are worried that the animals we slaughter for food can't "stretch" their legs properly prior to the slaughter....yet its perfectly acceptable to parents to allow their 12-17 year olds to be given an abortion without their being made aware of it....what sad and pathetically confused people we are!

So the above highlighted "wins" are the only GOOD things that I can that came out of this election...Republicans lost further seats in both the Senate and the House...proving that people are just pretty much fed up with representatives who try to play "middle of the road"...we want leaders to actually LEAD, stand on principal and fight for our values and beliefs....not wishy-washy "moderates" who can't aritculate anything other than "I'll work across the isle!"

This is a sad day...

Sadly, its election day and I think that tomorrow morning we are going to wake up with Obama our new president elect!

McCain just missed the mark in my opinion...his choice of VP, Palin, did nothing to help his campaign. In the end, he just wasn't able to articulate his message and of course, not sticking to core values and principals...trying to play "middle of the road guy" NEVER works!

People want a leader who is desisive, direct and affirmative in their beliefs. Its just like in any company. When a CEO lays out clear objectives, is direct and certain about his vision for the company, the employees will fall in line and produce. They will be motivated and will feel confident in their leadership.

However, if the CEO is wishy-washy...can't articulate his position, is unsure of certain aspects of his vision and policies for the company, employees will be demotivated, frustrated and will not want to put in the effort required for the entire company to succeed.

LEADERS...that's what we want, not politicians who pander to this group and that...who change their messaging to fit each group they are speaking to, etc.

We want someone who looks professional, confident and secure...not someone (God love him) who looks tired, weak and uncertain.

The only hope now is that the American people will finally learn over the next four years that Socialism is NOT good for our nation...that DEMOCRATS are NOT good for our country!

Its begun already...

Investigating a private citizen because what he says hurts the Obama campaign...I can only imagine what is going to happen when he is actually in charge!

Ya'll thought Big Brother was bad before...HA! Not only will you have no privacy with a fully Democratic controlled Congress and White will have NO MONEY! As the social programs instituted by these evil people will strip you of what you have, to give to life will be "fair" for all! Never mind that those of us NOT on welfare actually work real jobs for a living...sigh...

Maybe I'll quit too and join the ranks of the government's entitlees...after all, why should I work when I can sit at home, in a house provided for me by the government...eating food provided for me through the government (think WIC)? I can see it now...the unemployment rates will skyrocket...and in a few years, I can demand the government pay me for my retirement from unemployment too! Course, that is, if I don't find myself euthanized first!

What the hell has happened to my beloved America???

Checks on 'Joe' more extensive than first acknowledged
Tax, welfare info also sought on McCain ally
Wednesday, October 29, 2008 8:05 PM
By Randy Ludlow

A state agency has revealed that its checks of computer systems for potential information on "Joe the Plumber" were more extensive than it first acknowledged.

Helen Jones-Kelley, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, disclosed today that computer inquiries on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher were not restricted to a child-support system.

The agency also checked Wurzelbacher in its computer systems to determine whether he was receiving welfare assistance or owed unemployment compensation taxes, she wrote.

Jones-Kelley made the revelations in a letter to Ohio Senate President Bill M. Harris, R-Ashland, who demanded answers on why state officials checked out Wurzelbacher.

Harris called the multiple records checks "questionable" and said he awaits more answers. "It's kind of like Big Brother is looking in your pocket," he said.

If state employees run checks on every person listed in newspaper stories as buying a business, "it must take a lot of people a lot of time to run these checks," he said. "Where do you draw the line?"

The checks were run after the news media reported that Wurzelbacher was considering buying a plumbing business with more than $250,000 in annual income, Jones-Kelley wrote.

Republicans deserve to lose...

Want to know why we are in this "financial crisis"? You won't hear it from the mainstream certainly won't hear it from the Democrats or Liberals and most importantly, you won't hear it from the Republicans, especially not Senator John McCain...sigh...

Republicans and Conservatives had a golden opportunity in this election to kick some tail and actually put into office some solid leaders...but of course, we failed. Anyone who's been following politics for the past few years could have fairly easily predicted that the economy was going to be the "major" issue of this election, yet Republicans kept insisting that it would have more to do with the war in Iraq than anything else. A war which is basically won...a war which hasn't been an issue since the surge was instituted last January!

Here we had one of the best CEO's in the nation as a possible candidate, Mitt Romney...a man who co-founded and led one of the nations largest investment firms, but who also took over the Salt Lake Olympics when it was about $379 million short and managed to turn it around to earning a $100 million profit! And to top all that if it isn't enough, check this out...Upon entering the governorship of MA in January of 2003, Romney faced a projected $3 billion deficit through a combination of spending cuts, increased fees, and removal of corporate tax loopholes, by 2006 the state had a $700 million surplus and was able to cut taxes even further!

Oh...but, no...let's not look to this man to be the next leader to get us out of any sort of economic's instead look for Senator John McCain to lead know the man who's been in Congress for over 20 years, has little to no business experience and who's "pre-Congress" career was serving in the US Navy...great for a "war" president, not so great for an "economic" one...sigh....

It gets better though, everyone will applaud and cheer loudly when McCain picks a "conservative" running mate like Sarah Palin...course, never mind that she too has no business experience, afterall, she did manage to provide ONE tax break to the residents of know the state that has less population then the city I live in!!! And well, she did "fight" those big and evil oil corporations! What you may ask is her pre-political experience? Sportscaster...that should help out when it comes time to putting together a comprehensive economic plan, yes??

Well, her experience or lack there of, really doesn't matter anyway, since as a VP, she will have little to no Constitutional duties. She can try to "advise" McCain, but since he's a "maverick", its likely he won't listen anyway!

Does all this mean I will vote Obama...HELL NO!

Just means I am totally disgusted with both parties! Not that I ever believed in the one (Demoncrats). Just means that I have finally come to the conclusion that the only difference between Republicans and Democrats is that Republicans will institute socialism at a slightly slower rate than the Democrats.

One look at the recent bailout bill and all the CRAP that was included in it, not refused by Republicans, but actually happily agreed upon...demonstrates what I am talking about!

Worst of all...not ONE Republican is actually YELLING about this outrageous bill...and NOT ONE has actually spoken out publicly to expose who's actually at fault for causing this "crisis" fact, we heard from Palin last Thursday that this whole "mess" is due to greedy "Wall Street"...that totally turned my stomach to hear! Now we (Republicans) even regurgitate liberal talking points!!!

How about ONE Republican actually having the cashews to go on TV and tell the real truth? You know, being a real "maverick" and speaking out against, not only this pathetic bill, but also exposing the facts that led us to this "crisis"???

Do Facts Matter?
By Thomas Sowell

Abraham Lincoln said, "You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you can't fool all the people all the time."

Unfortunately, the future of this country, as well as the fate of the Western world, depends on how many people can be fooled on election day, just a few weeks from now.

Right now, the polls indicate that a whole lot of the people are being fooled a whole lot of the time.

The current financial bailout crisis has propelled Barack Obama back into a substantial lead over John McCain— which is astonishing in view of which man and which party has had the most to do with bringing on this crisis.

It raises the question: Do facts matter? Or is Obama's rhetoric and the media's spin enough to make facts irrelevant?

Fact Number One: It was liberal Democrats, led by Senator Christopher Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank, who for years— including the present year— denied that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were taking big risks that could lead to a financial crisis.

It was Senator Dodd, Congressman Frank and other liberal Democrats who for years refused requests from the Bush administration to set up an agency to regulate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

It was liberal Democrats, again led by Dodd and Frank, who for years pushed for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to go even further in promoting subprime mortgage loans, which are at the heart of today's financial crisis.

Alan Greenspan warned them four years ago. So did the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers to the President. So did Bush's Secretary of the Treasury, five years ago.

Yet, today, what are we hearing? That it was the Bush administration "right-wing ideology" of "de-regulation" that set the stage for the financial crisis. Do facts matter?

We also hear that it is the free market that is to blame. But the facts show that it was the government that pressured financial institutions in general to lend to subprime borrowers, with such things as the Community Reinvestment Act and, later, threats of legal action by then Attorney General Janet Reno if the feds did not like the statistics on who was getting loans and who wasn't.

Is that the free market? Or do facts not matter?

Then there is the question of being against the "greed" of CEOs and for "the people." Franklin Raines made $90 million while he was head of Fannie Mae and mismanaging that institution into crisis.

I will not vote McCain...

I have been watching the debate tonight...and its taken both Palin and Biden all of 10 minutes to help me come to the conclusion that I won't be voting for EITHER Obama or McCain!

Honestly, I can't tell the difference between either of these two "bipartisan" politicians.

Palin had a perfect opportunity to explain exactly WHO is responsible for the current economic condition and she failed miserably...not even mentioning the outrageous "tweak" to the fair housing act that occured under Billy boy!

And then she dared to blame "greedy lenders and Wall Street"...sounds just like a liberal!

News flash for both of them...the middle class does well, when the wealthy...the owners of corporations and businesses of all sorts (you know...those who EMPLOY the middle class!) do well!

We have two parties now..."Liberals" and "Liberal Lite"...disgraceful!

There is no Republican party...let alone Conservative party left in this nation!
