According to Real Clear Politics, everyone's least favorite Failed Messiah, Barack Hussein Obama, has a 46.6% approval rating. (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/president_obama_job_approval-1044.html) It would not be a stretch to say that our Dear Leader's chances for reelection are slim. The economy is in shambles. Gas prices are through the roof. The housing market has ceased to exist. The stock market is more schizophrenic than the Middle East. The War on Terror has become a quagmire with no end in sight. Unemployment is at nightmare levels. Things are so bad there are unsubstantiated rumors that professional atheist Christopher Hitchens has started a prayer group.
Odds are Chairman Obama will be replaced in 2012, and assuming the RINO herd doesn't throw a socialist-lite wrench in the works, our Dear Leader will be replaced by a Conservative. (I have my favorites, you have your favorites. This column is not, and never will be about, shilling for candidates. For the rest of this article, this person will be known as "Generic Conservative".)
Obviously, that would be a good thing. Now, more than ever, the United States needs the common sense solutions that only Conservativism can supply. We don't simply need another Ronald Reagan. We need Ronald Reagan on steroids with Barry Bonds as his personal trainer.
Assuming Generic Conservative does end Chairman Obama's Reign of Incompetent Terror in 2012, all of the problems I've listed above will still be there, eating away at the Republic. On top of all of that ,there will be another problem. I fear this problem will be worse than the ones listed above.
The 2+2=5 far left will become violent and this could plunge the nation into chaos.
I know, I know. I'm not Glenn Beck. My tinfoil hat is too tight. Blah, blah, blah. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Got it. But understand this: We no longer live in a time that allows to shrug our shoulders and say, "Naaah. That couldn't happen here." We live in times that force us to say, "I hope to God that isn't true."
Check this out:
[I] want to focus on one particular suggestion you had about using the wonderful digital tools that are newly available for the reinvigoration of democracy. Now, they have been around for a while, but they are spreading far and wide and more people are getting involved. We need to have an American spring you know, the Arab spring. The non-violent part of it isnt finished yet, but we need to have an American spring, a kind of an American non-violent change where people on the grassroots get involved again. Not the, you know, not in the Tea Party-style. ---Former Vice President Al Snore, in an interview with his new puppet, Keith Olbermann.
Let that sink in for a moment. This is a former Vice President of the United States calling for the same kind of revolution that we saw in the Middle East that has brought Libya to a civil war, Egypt to a military dictatorship, and the beginnings of civil war in Syria, Bahrain, and Yemen.
Now, we have already seen beginning of this crap in Wisconsin. Check out what I found at the International Socialist Review, as the author describes the protests against Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and his plan to have state workers contibute to their own health care and retirement:
"Sick outs by Madison teachers were initiated by the rank and file. By Tuesday evening, so many had called in to say that they would not be at work the next day, that the school district cancelled classes. The teachers stayed out for the rest of the week and the following Monday, with union leaders scrambling to catch up, and teachers from other districts around the state joining the action as the week progressed.
The occupation [empahsis added] of the Capitol building began on Tuesday night, with hundreds of protesters staying inside demanding to testify before the Joint Finance Committee, which was required to hold hearings on the bill. The occupation [empahsis added] was initiated by students, but soon had enthusiastic labor participation, with particular unions designating certain nights for their members to sleep over.
This huge and militant [emphasis added] response led all 14 Democrats in the Wisconsin Senate to leave the state on the third day of the protests, depriving Republicans of a quorum necessary to pass Walkers bill. For nearly three weeks the legislature was gridlocked. In response to threats of layoffs, the South Central Federation of Labor passed a resolution saying that it would support a general strike. Others pointed out that the budget deficit would disappear if corporations and the wealthy paid their fair share of taxes.
The mood to escalate action was there [emphasis added], but union leaders were terrified of things going too far. From the beginning most said they would accept the economic concessions contained in Walkers bill in exchange for the preservation of collective bargaining and other union rights, sacrificing their members paychecks to defend their own positions.
After the teachers returned to work, union officials were unwilling to call more job actions, and instead starting channeling resources into recall campaigns against eight GOP senators. This allowed Walker to wind down the occupation [emphasis added] by slowly making access to the Capitol more difficult. Rallies continued outside, but on March 9, in a legislative maneuver, the Senate detached the anti-union sections from the rest of Walkers bill and voted to pass them without the Democrats present.
The result was a huge and spontaneous outburst of anger around the city. Several thousand of us retook [emphasis added] the State Capitol in the early evening, climbing through windows and pushing past cops [emphasis added], who eventually gave up trying to stop people from entering. The mood was electric, and the many teachers who had joined the occupation were waiting for word from their union to walk off the job again the next day. If that had happened, other workers might have joined them."
The author, Phil Gasper, wasn't just some hack at Mother Jones or The Huffingtonandpuffington Post. He's a communist activist and editor of The Communist Manifesto: A Road Map to Historys Most Important Document.
Now, if you add the above to the left's history of violence (Lee Harvey Oswald, the Weather Underground, Sirhan Sirhan, the Unabomber, the G8 riot in Pittsburgh, just to name a few examples) to the attitude I've illustrated above, Generic Conservative is going to have his or her hands full, especially if he or she must make an economic decision the far left doesn't like. Washington DC will turn into Athens at very best or Tripoli at very worst.
Dark days are ahead.
God help us all.
You’re lucky. My mother is a leftist Democrat. We stopped talking about politics when I was 10.
Well, I, for one, look forward to the coming riots of Nov. 12, 2012.
They are dangerous because they have no heart felt values, they will go in what ever direction the wind blows.
I can barely talk to ANY member of my family any more. I certainly don’t go out of my way to do so. Virtually every conversation becomes political (try talking about the weather without AGW coming up!) & they are all perfect products of the leftist media.
That’s right, MM! It’s going to be chaos.
Still, I believe it’s all fun and games until someone gets hit in the wallet. Most nonpartisans vote with their wallets and those wallets are becoming thinner by the second.
There is already a civil war going on, it just won’t look like the first civil war. It will be over debt slavery. http://www.futurnamics.com/civilwar.php
I’m the black sheep of my family. (There I go again!) I come rom a long line of Lefty New York Democrats. My parents were leftists.
In fact, I was once punished as a kid for yelling “Up yours, commie!” to one of my parents’ leftist friends. I was 10. Luckily, the punishment wasn’t too bad. My parents believed in that “non-spanking” crap.
Bookmarked for a later read! Looks awesome.
46% approval is a national catastrophe, any way you slice it.
This 46% do not and will not accept the legitimacy of an election, if they lose. This 46% (that is a HUGE number) are committed to our destruction.
Besides the fact that Obama could ABSOLUTELY be reelected at 46% fifteen months before the election (Reagan was 44% in August of 1983) the fact that we have such a large anti-American, anti-Constitution, anti-liberty group presages war - whoever is elected on November 6, 2012.
All ready on the firing line.
“I respect Sarah Palin but I believe if she were by any chance elected as president, the unhinged left would make this nation ungovernable and destroy it out of rage.”
Bring it. They’d have to go through me first.
The hate-filled losers on the Left have been waging war on America, and REAL Americans for decades, anyway. It is way past time to get down in the three point stance and play some tackle football with these Communists. It is a war for our nation’s very survival.
The sooner, the better
Only if we allow them to do it.
Have spent the last four years eliminating my debts...I knew this was comming!!
2) There's no indication that he's ever published any other serious academic paper on any subject, although publication of academic papers is a basic requirement for an individual to be recognized as a serious academic, especially in the legal area;
3) He's never released any of his academic records, showing that he has a lot of mediocre and worse performance to conceal; and
4) At the televised great summit on health insurance he showed himself to be a colossal tower of ignorance regarding insurance when he hopelessly confused automotive collision and liability insurance?
Those points might help unless she's hopelessly ignorant or still suffering from the effects of Obamagaz.
This is going to get strident and fantastically unpleasant, because they have a very long way to go to reform public opinion of 0bama now that he's been in office long enough for people to see what he really is. Far easier to tar the other fellow. The ludicrous attempts to associate Palin with the Giffords shooting and the Tea Party with the downgrade they were doing their best to prevent are only two minor examples. Any attempt on the part of opposing partisans to do the same to 0bama is met with shrieks of "racism!" that appear, at last, to be losing their potency.
2012 looks to be the most polarizing election in years, and the ironic part is that the ones calling for civility tend to be the worst offenders. Useless anyway. Civility in American politics is as rare as civility in war, and for the same reason.
Only because the MSM was distorting the true facts....election day 1980 I was driving home from work and the news was that the election was very close...ten minutes later I walk through my front door and Carter is on the TV conceding. So much for polls!!!
“Still 46.6%? Sheesh, who are these people?”
The same ones who pay no (federal income) taxes!
How I wish a requirement for (the privilege of) voting would be that one has to be either a property owner or at least a TAXPAYER!
“At this point would the real hardworking people of Wisconsin stand up to the communists and push them out?”
No, of course not - they’d just call for Walker’s/the Republicans’ heads on a plate.
