2010 Election... America's Most Important?

Discussion in 'Politics' started by Scataphagos, Aug 7, 2009.


    What would you say if I gave you 11 reasons why the elections in 2010 will be the most important in the history of the United States ?

    1. What if I had told you in October 2008, before the last presidential election, that before Barack Obama's first 100 days in office, the federal government would be in control of both the mortgage and the banking industries? That 19 of America's largest banks would be forced to undergo stress tests by the federal government which would determine if they were insufficiently capitalized, so they must be supervised by the government?

    Would you have said, "C'mon, that will never happen in America ."

    2. What if I had told you that within Barack Obama's first 100 days in office the federal government would be the largest shareholder in the US Big-Three automakers: GM, and Chrysler? That the government would kick out the CEO's of these companies and appoint hand-picked executives with zero experience in the auto industry and that executive compensation would be determined, not by a Board of Directors, but by the government?

    Would you have said, "C'mon, that will never happen in America !"

    3. What if I had told you that Barack Obama would appoint 21 Czars, without congressional approval, accountable only to him, not to the voters, who would have control over a wide range of US policy decisions. That there would be a Stimulus Accountability Czar, an Urban Czar, a Compensation Czar, an Iran Czar, an Auto Industry Czar, a Cyber Security Czar, an Energy Czar, a Bank Bailout Czar, and more than a dozen other government bureaucrats with unchecked regulatory powers over US domestic and foreign policy.

    Would you have said, "C'mon, that will never happen in America !"

    4. What if I had told you that the federal deficit would be $915 billion in the first six months of the Obama presidency - with a projected annual deficit of $1.75 trillion - triple the $454.8 billion in 2008, for which the previous administration was highly criticized by Obama and his fellow Democrats. That congress would pass Obama's $3.53 trillion federal budget for fiscal 2010... That the projected deficit over the next ten years would be greater than $10 trillion.

    Would you have said, "C'mon, that will never happen in America !"

    5. What if I had told you that the Obama Justice Department would order FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high-value detainees captured on the battlefield and held at US military detention facilities in Afghanistan . That Obama would order the closing of the Guantanamo detention facility with no plan for the disposition of the 200-plus individuals held there. That several of the suspected terrorists at Guantanamo would be sent to live in freedom in Bermuda at the expense of the US government. That our returning US veterans would be labeled terrorists and put on a watch list.

    Would you have said, "C'mon, that will never happen in America !"

    6. What if I had told you that the federal government would seek powers to seize key companies whose failures could jeopardize the financial system. That a new regulatory agency would be proposed by Obama to control loans, credit cards, mortgage-backed securities, and other financial products offered to the public.

    Would you have said, "C'mon, that will never happen in America !!"

    7. What if I had told you that Obama would travel to the Middle East, bow before the Saudi king, and repeatedly apologize for America's past actions. That he would travel to Latin America where he would warmly greet Venezuela 's strongman Hugo Chavez and sit passively in the audience while Nicaraguan Marxist thug Daniel Ortega charged America with terrorist aggression in Central America .
    Would you have said, "C'mon, that will never happen in America !!"

    8. Okay, now what if I were to tell you that Obama wants to dismantle conservative talk radio through the imposition of a new "Fairness Doctrine." That he wants to curtail the First Amendment rights of those who may disagree with his policies via internet blogs, cable news networks, or advocacy ads. That most major network television and most newspapers will only sing his phrases like state-run media in communist countries?

    Would you say, "C'mon, that will never happen in America !!!"

    9. What if I were to tell you that the Obama Justice Department is doing everything it can to limit your Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. That the federal government wants to reinstate the so-called assault weapons ban which would prohibit the sale of any type of firearm that doesn't require the shooter to pull the trigger every time a round is fired. That Obama's Attorney General wants to eliminate the sale of virtually all handguns and ammunition, which most citizens choose for self-defense.

    Would you say, "C'mon, that will never happen in America !!!"

    10. What if I were to tell you that the Obama plan is to eliminate states rights guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment and give the federal government sweeping new powers over policies currently under the province of local and state governments and voted on by the people. That Obama plans to control the schools, energy production, the environment, health care, and the wealth of every US citizen.
    Would you say, "C'mon, that will never happen in America !"

    11. What if I were to tell you that the president, the courts, and the federal government have ignored the US Constitution and have seized powers which the founders of our country fought to restrict. That our last presidential election may have been our last truly free election for some time to come.

    I know, I know what you will say. "That will never happen in America !"

    If we don't do everything in our power to stop this madness in 2010...

    May God have mercy on our worthless souls.

    Pass this on to every freedom loving American you can.

    Thank you.
  2. Is "freedom loving american" a code word for the ignorant camp followers who got us in this mess in the first place.
  3. Quite the opposite.
  4. what do the republicans run on? do they say" we said no to everything for 4 years"? do they run on fiscal restraint? dont make me laugh after the last eight years. do they run on strong defense? nope, they got us into an illegal war. what accomplishments can they run on? do they say they are going to fix health care? cant do that they have proved they could care less.
    its not enough to just say no. you have to come up with some new ideas that are not the same old same old that has been proven a failure.
  5. Pfft.
    Since Reagan, actually really since Carter, who actually did the heavy lifting of deregulating the first industries, including oil, we've had this fundamentalist market philosophy, where the "market knows best" is in place.
    Well, almost. The impossible traffic in LA and Atlanta is a direct result of the heavy subsidization of America's car culture, after all. And the recent blow-up in housing was a direct result of the massive subsidization of housing, extended first and foremost to fleeing whites, and then to minorities when they ran out of whites to foist overpriced shacks on, and then of course the whole opposition to health care from Truman to Clinton to the present completely ignores that health care for corporate employees is the largest tax subsidy there is, not to mention the reality of Medicare and Medicaid.
    So the real philosophy of the large, broad American middle that decides these elections has been, for the past thirty years at least: capitalism for that guy over there, and socialism for me.
    The choice has always and forever been only a choice of what the government will and won't back. More than that, a choice between what works, and what doesn't. All the right ever does is defend what doesn't work - like the present expensive dysfunctional mess of an inefficiently subsidized and organized health care "system" we have - against what does.
    The 2010 election is no more important than any other one. Just like all the rest, the right will present irrelevance and misinformation against practical solutions to real-life problems, and they will, as always, label those practical solutions as socialism.
    It's been that way for more than a hundred years, and it will probably always be that way.
  6. scata - 3 definitions - A piece of shit. In Greek, scata means shit, and since Greek is the root of all languages, scata can proudly be substituted...

    Greek prefix phago? This Greek term means, basically to eat or devour. The verb form φαγήσω dates back to Homer.


  7. "don't mke me laugh" ?

    two points, establishing a military presence in Iraq has undeniably made us more safe. (The cost/benefit is what can be argued). Just give it time, Obama and the Democrats will heradling "their Iraq success" soon.

    "Broken Health Care System"... you haven't seen broken until every medical decision is filtered through some monsterous federal apparatus. Whats more, what is broken with health care is its spiraling costs. If this is the case, why is virtually everyone bracing themselves for massive cost increases under a national health care system?

    I agree that 2010 is a critical juncture in American history, although the recent infigting in the Democrat party between the Whack-Job Marxists, and the Moderate Marxists, have lessened the extreme importance of getting them out of office. I'll say this, if in 2012 Obama is re-elected and still maintains house and senate marjorities, this country will be unrecognizable in 2016. These people no know bounds when it comes to government largess and individual control via their Orwellian social engineering schemes.

    It is a frightening thought, but I'll be long gone if this happens. The country will be abandoned by anyone who values individual rights, leaving it to the federal cock-suckers like vhen.
  8. dont let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. people like you will not be missed.

    ........irrelevance and misinformation against practical solutions to real-life problems, and they will, as always, label those practical solutions as socialism.

    :D :D :D :D :D
  10. Raul Emanuel was in charge of slotting candidates for the last 2 elections.

    He was so focused on getting a majority he had to put very conservative democrats in many districts. These Blue dogs are coming to be his problem.

    This is what happens when a party has no principles or core beliefs. Because the moral message on the democratic party will not allow them to win office in many regions they have no choice but to game the system with neo-dems.

    With no morals to uphold the Democrats have been able to field candidates only for the purpose of gaining majorities in Washington. It allows them to control all the committees and the agenda. But the majorities are not loyal or true.

    He also picked a lot of Iraq vets in a shallow attempt to be a red blooded american. This at the same time the Dems were declearing us losers in Iraq
