SEND IT BACK


And so it begins.

A New Year brings news opportunities, experiences, and of course challenges.

In less than 24 hours since the chime of midnight our nation has already flown off the cliff and currently hangs in free fall.

Like my parents tell me “Nothing good happens after midnight” and we can see that in the Senate’s 2:00am vote on Jan. 1 2013.

In the final moments left before the House votes on the Senate’s Fiscal Cliff Disaster of a Deal I urge you to call your Representatives by following the link below.


Let us start this New Year off Right and SEND IT BACK!

The Night Before Barackmas

The Night Before Barackmas
'Twas the night before Barackmas, when all thro' the house
Every patriot was stirring, while the average voter satquieter than a mouse.
The promises were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that candidate Obama soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of piling debt danc'd in their heads,
And Mama in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a four years term nap —
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I grabbed my shotgun to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters, and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,
Gave the luster of mid-day to the manager scene below;
When, what to my terrified eyes should appear,
But an empty chair, and a nation in fear,
With a little middle age driver, so obedient and nice,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Rice.
More rapid than donkeys her coursers they came,
And she whistled, and shouted, and call'd them by name:
"Now! Clinton, now! Sebelius, now! Pelosi and Fluke,
"On! Kagan, on! Biden, on! Holder and finally Americamight have been duped!;
"To the top of the porch! To the top of the embassywall!
"Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"
As dry leaves before the fiscal cliff fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So down to the heartland the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of joblessness — and St. Rice too:
And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The clenching and gnawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my gun, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Rice came with a bound:
She was dress'd all in secrets, from her head to her foot,
And her clothes were all tarnish'd with ashes and soot;
A bundle of excuses was flung on her back,
And she looked like a puppet just opening her pack:
Her eyes — how they twinkled! Her dimples: how scary,
Her cheeks were like roses, her nose like a cherry;
Her droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
She was nervous and scared, a right depressing old elf,
And she screamed when she heard it in spite of herself;
She spoke not a word, but continued with her work,
And stole all the stockings; then quickly turned with ajerk,
And laying her finger aside of her nose
And giving a nod, up the chimney she rose.
She sprung to her sleigh, to leave in a flash
And away they all flew, leaving quite a large splash,
But I gave an exclaim, ere he drove out of sight —
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Dear Republicans


Dear Republicans,

With the 2012 election behind us, we look to 2014 to turn things around. The blaming and pointing of fingers began even before polls closed on election night. Many in the party suggest a move toward the center is the only way to draw in young people. That in my opinion, is the worst decision the GOP could make.

As an 18 year old conservative Republican a move toward the center would be the final nail in the coffin for the Republican Party. Young people are finally waking up to the fact that our nation is in trouble and many of our freedoms our quickly eroding before our eyes.

It’s not the policies that we stand for that turn the young people away but instead the attempts of pandering is why many look to the left. 

If Republicans turn away from our stances on traditional marriage, our promises NOT to raise taxes, and even the sanctity of life  what is the difference between us and the left? Nothing, beside the left also promising “free” stuff.

We must not abandon the values this nation was founded upon and the principles that led us through our darkest times. We need a restoration in this nation and party; not a moderation.

I urge you, Republicans, as a concerned young American, to stay true to your beliefs, to always fight for life, marriage, fiscal responsibly and most importantly our Constitution, And always remember why you serve…

As Henry Clay once said, “The Constitution of the United States was made not merely for the generation that then existed, but for posterity—unlimited, undefined, endless, perpetual posterity.” 


A concerned American,

RIP Twinkies


Today is indeed a sad day in America.

The unions have struck the final blow to free markets. Hostess Brands cites an inability to produce its product due to the striking union workers.

This decision by Hostess shouldn't come as a surprise to 19,000 workers as they were warned if the strike didn't cease by Thursday they would shut down all operations.

A company founded in 1930 which was able to survive many economic hardships was not able to survive the union/big government climate of 2012.

The over 19,000 workers formerly employed by Hostess will now have to find jobs in this harsh business climate.

As of this morning Hostess Brands website hostesscakes.com could no longer be found.

Hopefully Michele Obama doesn't croak tonight when I chow down on Papa John’s Pizza and enjoy some Twinkies; while I still can, for dessert.

Only in America


Driving down the dust filled country roads of Kansas, I watched as the wheat moved with the evening breeze. I couldn’t help but listen to some good old country music. As I continued down the road, the DJ came on and announced the next song, “Only in America” by Brooks and Dunn. I clenched the wheel of the truck harder and began to get chills while thinking of the not so distant past.

While our nation was conceived hundreds of miles from the prairies of Kansas, I can’t help but see the spirit of our founders alive and well every day. I see it in the Vietnam Veteran who was willing to sacrifice his life in the defense of freedom, to the history teacher whose job is to educate us about these sacrifices. Just think how lucky we are to live in a nation blessed by God.

“Only in America, where we dream as big as we want to.” The words of that song would not be possible if it were not for the men sent to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787.

As I continued driving, I saw signs of our Constitution alive and well.  I witnessed Tea Parties and freedom loving patriots petitioning their government, and as I drove further down the road I saw a church, a synagogue, and a mosque standing proudly in their community, worshiping freely in peace. Pulling over in a little town to grab a bite to eat, I visited a mom-and-pop restaurant trying to achieve the American Dream. As I left from the home cooked, finger-licking, good restaurant, I looked across the street and saw a father and son walking home from shooting clay pigeons in the country, exercising their 2nd Amendment rights.

After a day of driving through our great state, I got home, flipped on the TV, turned on the news and witnessed the media divulging the daily happenings from the president to your local county commissioner. As the commercials roll, political ad after ad scrolls, I see the diversity and chance to succeed from all candidates. There is a young woman who owns a small business down the road from you, a Hispanic man who is CEO of your local energy company, and a little old lady just wanting to make a change for the next generation; all of these men and women are willing to risk their livelihood just to allow the next generation the same chance they once had.

 
What sets America apart from any nation in the history of mankind?  It is the ability to pass onto the next generation a better life then you were able to experience. No matter what road or story we have to tell of our life experiences at the end of the day we can call ourselves an American. This spirit of altruism is rooted deep in our nation’s history and began long before we were the United States. Our Founding Fathers were shaped by the thought of self-sacrifice and exceptionalism. 

Drafted in our Constitution are the words that laid the foundation of this American Dream. “…and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Only in America is right. Only in America can a farm boy from Kansan grow up to be the 34th President of the United States. Only in America can a college dropout be one of the wealthiest men in the nation. Only in America can we spend our sunset years telling our grandchildren of the sacrifices and forefathers that created such a great nation.

As a young American I see now more than ever that our nation needs a steady rock and something to help us weather the storm. The Constitution is the rock that allows America to still be that “shining city on a hill.” Henry Clay eloquently stated in 1787, “The Constitution of the United States was made not merely for the generation that then existed, but for the posterity – unlimited, undefined, endless, perpetual posterity.”

After the sun sets, the demonstrators head home, and my TV goes black for the night, I kneel before my bed and thank God for the blessings He  has poured upon our nation. I pray that my generation can be strong and take the mantle of freedom and sacrifice left by those before. The work of freedom is never done. Long after I’m gone my children and my children’s children will take up freedom’s mantle. Thankfully, I know that they have everything they need in our founding documents to keep freedom alive.

Only in America is that possible.

Fluke, Fornicators and Fabricators

“We are here to nominate a president and I’ve got one in mind, former President Bill Clinton told delegates at the Democrat National Convention last night.
 
I bet he does have one in mind — his wife.
 
Clinton’s speech at the DNC had to be one of the toughest jobs — renominating President Obama to a second term.
 
Only four years ago Clinton hated no one more than Barack. This “fairy tale” campaign Clinton had spoken of is now asking for a second term.
 
The relationship was beyond frosty in 2008. Remember what happened in South Carolina?
 
“I think that they played the race card on me,” Clinton said of the Obama campaign. “We now know, from memos from the campaign that they planned to do it all along.”
 
I personally would love to be in that ballot box when Clinton pulls the lever for Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan come Nov. 6th.
 
Clinton was the first Democrat in this week’s convention to have the audacity to say “We are better off than we were four years ago.”
 
Are we?
 
Debt skyrocketing, unemployment up, gas up, and college tuition up. And we are better off?
 
Yesterday, I wondered if liberals are delusional — but I think the real question is are liberals just liars?
 
Day Two at the DNC appears more like Sin City.
 
Let’s start with Clinton — who cheated on his wife, desecrated the Oval Office and was impeached.
 
He is the poster child for everything that is right with the Democrats.
 
Then you have Elizabeth Warren who rigged the system by declaring she was Cherokee Indian. By Warren’s standards I am an Indian as well; 1/32 that is.
 
And don’t even get me started about Saundra Fluke.
 
The Queen of Contraception was given speaking time at the Democratic National Convention.
 
You can’t make this stuff up.
 
A woman that believes the taxpayers should pay for contraception and abortion.
 
If these three people are some of the “best” of the Democratic Party than God help us all.
 
What fundamental transformation occurred in the Democratic Party that when the words “God and Jerusalem” were added back to the platform boos and jeers could be heard throughout the stadium.
 
Here’s some advice for the Democrats — watch out for cloud to ground lightning.

Are Liberals Delusional?

I turned on my television last night to watch the Democratic National Convention — and for some reason it felt like I was transported to another dimension — especially compared to last week’s Republican gathering
in Tampa.

So here’s my question for the Left — are you delusional?

Democrats speak of lowering the debt –but the moment they hit the gavel to begin their convention the debt had officially hit the “Not So Sweet 16.” $16 trillion.

Democrats speak of fair pay between men and women yet…in the Obama White House women earn 18 percent less than men in the same positions.

Democrats speak that they are for the people… yet support the killing of millions of unborn Americans — in what is supposed to be the safest place; the womb.

The Democrats still use the slogan “Change.” Really? It’s been four years since your “fundamental transformation of America.” How much longer do you need?

The Obama Administration has “changed” a few things. Unemployment on Obama’s first day was 7.8% now America’s unemployment rate is 8.3%. That’s not the kind of change I want.

On the president’s first day on the job America’s debt was an outstanding $10.626 trillion.

Want to take a guess at what it is now?

It’s a $16 trillion. $16 trillion that my generation and my children’s children will have to pay.

Even Gov. Martin O’Malley, who is considered a possible Democratic contender in 2016, knows the economy is in the toilet.

“Can you honestly say that people are better off today than they were four years ago,” he was asked last week.

“No,” he replied. “But that’s not the question of this election.”

Excuse me, governor — but THAT IS THE QUESTION OF THIS ELECTION.

Why choose four more years when the past four years have failed?

What kind of arrogance must you have to believe you deserve four more years.

If you are willing, follow my blog this week. But be warned – I am fired up.

In President Obama’s words I am a gun-toting, Bible-clinging American.
