To the Future

Now that the 2008 presidential election is behind us my thoughts go to what the future has in store and whom will conservative folks unhappy with both candidates look to. Though it’s too early to tell, amid all the finger pointing of the defeated McCain camp, if Sarah Palin will lead us out of the desert, I’m here to say RHINOS (republicans in name only) like John McCain should be banished to the pages of history. McCain has no one but himself to blame for his defeat, he refused to challenge Obama on a myriad of real concerns like;

  • Who is Obama, really? We only were fed the Hollywood version by the worshiping media who suddenly are asking themselves what did we do, we knew we were campaigning for his election but did we ask the right questions to find out who he really is or what he believes in? Too little too late.
  • Tax issues that any economics 101 student knows are wrong for today’s economy and are anti business, anti investment and anti growth. Stagnation waiting to happen.
  • Obama pals and mentors like Reverend Wright and Bill Ayers, both America hating firebrands. Yet he clung to their defense, finally and begrudgingly trying to distance himself.
  • His association with ACORN and his $800,000 “donation” to sign up new (many several times or unqualified) voters and actively tell them to vote for Obama. His role in training ACORN recruiters, did Obama teach them how to inflate the voting rolls, where did they learn to commit the fraud that is being prosecuted in several states?
  • Here’s one for you lib’s. How about Obama’s stand on Abortion to vote AGAINST lifesaving treatment for BABIES that survived late term abortions! That’s insane, what are we becoming!

These and a myriad of other concerns to an informed citizen were left mostly unchallenged by the McCain Camp. His problem was that he believes much like Obama and couldn’t challenge him, given the choices, the voters went with the young, suave and sophisticated guy. I believe McCain would have been the lesser evil and a good slice of the country did also, a sharper distinction could have tipped the scales.

Now some in the McCain camp are attempting to cast the blame on Sarah Palin for his defeat. Get real, in a Rasmussen exit poll 69% of Republicans said Sarah Palin HELPED McCain, while only 20% said she hurt him. Read this, according to Rasmussen, 91% of Republicans have a favorable view of her while only 8% see her unfavorably. When asked for their choice for the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, 64% said Palin, the next closest contenders garnered 12% and 11% respectively.

Read the news! now that Sarah Palin is back in Alaska and Oil, which provides the bulk of state revenue, has fallen below $60 a barrel and are below the level needed to balance the state budget. What does Sarah say to that? Quote “Now we kick in that fiscal conservativeness that needs to be engaged, and we progress this state with $57-a-barrel oil,” and said the state would have to “be prudent with public dollars and provide services more efficiently than have ever been provided in the state of Alaska before.” ! The Palin smear campaign continues because the opposition sees Ms. Palin as being a real conservative, and wants her to go away, now the McCain camp is helping them out. Shame!

Sarah Palin displays the kind of leadership that the Republican Party wants, needs! Can Sarah beat Obama in 2012, will she run? I don’t know what the next four years will bring, but I do know you can’t beat the Democrats by becoming more like them. John, are you listening, George?

Though I don’t agree totally with the following comment, the writer does raise a good point or two. Additionally the GOP is not against alternative energy, but against exacerbating the energy crisis by ignoring conventional sources, as alternative sources are economically disastrous and technologically impossible at this time..

My name is Zhou yue, I once write on the Israel insider about the citizenship of Obama. Now I still stun of how this man still can be elected as US president. Any way, here’s the things I think you must done to topple this man.
1. Joint force with any of his opponent and create task force to sort things up on what must be done.
2. Help out the Philip J Berg on his lawsuit that now on the supreme court. Remember act fast for if Obama is already on the office, then he shall make sure the judge is replace on some one that cling to him. Send also some one to Indonesia, to take his school cerfiticate and copy it (SD Asissi and SDN 01 Menteng ) to get the prove that he is an Indonesian.
3. Buy the Ford, GM and Chysler stock; of course this one is the people against state bail out. Remember if Obama already bail this company out, then he shall make this state run companies. When you succeed to take over these companies, then make a new management, I shall tell you the detail if you already make first move.
4. Protect any prospect new American President from GOP. Me my self prefer Jindal if he is not too conservative view about alternative energy.
Ps: I’m an Indonesian Chinese that wanted to return the favor to the US for what they had done when give my countryman shelter for the Chinese prosecution back in May riot’s 1998.
