April 15th Reminds Me Why I’m Not a Republican

It’s tax days kids and if you’re one of the dwindling number of self-serving profit seekers, uncaring for the plight of the less fortunate, devoid of any feeling or compassion for the downtrodden losers of life’s lottery, well then my greedy money grubbing friend you may not have built that magnificent lifestyle you unjustly enjoy, but thank God you are still required to pay the tax on it. And for cryin’ out loud stop your bitching, you’ve got plenty of company. But not nearly as much as you should as nearly 50% of US residents (I’ll not say citizens) pay no federal income taxes at all. So for those people, all these budget and tax arguments fall on deaf ears (assuming the idiots could even follow it). And REPUBLICANS allowed that to happen.

We are in for an “Immigration” bill pretty soon. We are about to legalize and offer a “path to citizenship” to reportedly 12 to 13 million illegal aliens currently residing in our country. Now you may believe this 12-13 number, I don’t. I think it’s more like 25-30 million, but let’s assume it is in fact only 12 million. In very short order Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and even Texas will go the way of California and never vote Republican again. You see 57% of immigrants both legal and illegal receive some sort of government subsidy. Why in God’s name would they vote for a party that wants to reduce taxes (of which they pay nada) and take away or reduce their benefits? And REPUBLICANS allowed that to happen.

Since the end of the Cold War we have been traipsing around the world sticking our nose into this or that country’s business. From the Balkans to Afghanistan to Central America to the Horn of Africa and the Middle East; we can’t seem to mind our own business. And now it looks like the Korean Peninsula is heating up, just what we need! Correct me if I’m wrong, but is not Europe capable of defending themselves? Aren’t the Japanese and South Koreans wealthy enough to provide for their own defense? Why does it fall on America to maintain near Cold War levels of preparedness? Why do we have to pay to keep the sea-lanes open, for Chinese and Japanese commerce? And REPUBLICANS not only allowed this to happen, in many cases they instigated the policy.  

In March 2012 President Obama signed Executive Order 13603 which gave the federal government in times of a national emergency (as defined by the federal government) the power to seize:
“All commodities and products that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals”
“All forms of energy”
“All forms of civil transportation”
“All usable water from all sources”
“Health resources; drugs, biological products, medical devices, materials, facilities, health supplies, services and equipment”
Forced labor (or “induction” as the executive order delicately refers to military conscription)
Forbes, 4/29/12

Homeland Security has ordered 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, so much in fact it’s hard to find ammo anywhere. They’ve ordered a shocking amount of hollow-point and sniper ammo. Plus Homeland security still isn’t done. Again, Forbes magazine reports…
“The Department of Homeland Security is apparently taking delivery (through the Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico VA, via the manufacturer – Navistar Defense LLC) of an undetermined number of the recently retrofitted 2,717 “Mine Resistant Protected” MaxxPro MRAP vehicles for service on the streets of the United States. These MRAP’s ARE BEING SEEN ON U.S. STREETS all across America by verified observers with photos, videos, and descriptions. Regardless of the exact number of MRAP’s being delivered to DHS (and evidently some to POLICE via DHS, as has been observed), why would they need such over-the-top vehicles on U.S. streets to withstand IEDs, mine blasts, and 50 caliber hits to bullet-proof glass? In a war zone… yes, definitely. Let’s protect our men and women, but on the streets of America?”
Furthermore just wait until Obamacare kicks in, there’ll be a whole assortment of anti-freedom, control measures you’ll all just love. And REPUBLICANS allowed, and continue to allow this to happen.
Here’s the thing, I am a Constitutional conservative. I believe in limited government and the rule of law. I believe most of our elected leaders have ignored their oaths of office to “serve, protect and defend” the Constitution. I believe we have been put on a path to national suicide by foreign malefactors such as George Soros, a determined and well-organized leftist movement and incompetent, self-interested politicians. I do not expect Democrats to act in the interest of our national traditions or the American people, but what I do expect is a vigorous defense of our national integrity and way of life from the opposition. I haven’t seen that in a long time, and neither have the American people.  I believe the Republican Party has participated in their own demise through omission (cowardice) or commission (cooperation with the left) to the detriment of our culture and our country. I believe the Republican Party is vacuous, venal and weak. I believe they have become so concerned with their own personal status and lifestyle, they have forgotten their own essential values (assuming they had them in the first place). I believe America as we have known it is over, that the forces of evil are taking control and the greatest system for the preservation of freedom and ending of human suffering, i.e. democratic capitalism, is being sacrificed in the name of “equality” which in historic terms is synonymous with mass murder. And I believe the Republican Party could have stopped most of this insanity, if only they had the guts.

THAT is why I’m not a Republican.

It is strange to think that in my lifetime I am witness to the undoing of the USA. That all our founding fathers fought for is going by the wayside. I am 49. I used to be a republican but I do not know what I am anymore. The party that I used to vote for is the same as the other now. Both just want to spend money they don't have to buy votes to keep there jobs. I have come to think that if you get government checks you shouldn't be able to vote. To me anyone getting money from the government their vote is bought and paid for.

I totally agree anon. Those individuals who receive government subsistence, apart from SSI etc., should lose their right to vote until they become producers.
