Conservative Corner: The Edge of the Abyss

The office of the President of the United States is the most prestigious office in the world. The election of this of this seat of power has become the biggest game in the country. It turned into a game full of lies, money and government scandal. The question is what party in America is fit, or better yet deserving, to occupy the office that was once held by founding father greats like George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, not to mention American legends like Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan.

 Every presidential administration has its issues; however, since Obama has questionably acquired the title, we have found that some presidents have more issues than others. Do we as Americans have an adequate replacement for the epic failure of the Democrat party? Plenty but will the liberals, Democrats, socialists, and liberal mass media again keep the right person from getting the job?

We have already seen the damage the left can do, yet still liberals and even some independents vote for them. There was such a hate, (liberals are supposed to be tolerant) of George Bush that, to this day, liberals blame him even though Obama has been in office since 2008. I guess the moderates and liberals have forgotten about the fast and furious scandal, a $16-plus trillion dept, voter fraud, the IRS scandal, the “if you like your healthcare you can keep it” lie, the Obamacare failure, the war on energy,  Solyndra,  Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s sealed records, giving billions to our enemies, voter intimidation, and Bill Ayers. Anyone remember those? After the results of the 2012 presidential elections, the answer is obvious.

Fortunately, the 2010 election year brought the people some fresh, and badly needed new blood to the Washington political arena. Unfortunately, because of the evils and corruption at the Capitol, some of the new people who were elected by “the people” were corrupted and fell into the same hole that many fall faced when they get to a Capitol Hill controlled by Democrats. These once-well-meaning representatives of the people from a conservative base were seduced by the dark side of politics. They are now known as RINOS, (Republican In Name Only). Chris Christy, John Boehner, Lisa Murkowski, and numerous other Republican senators and representatives have betrayed their conservative constituents and voted along with their Democrat counter-parts on the other side of the isle. The left may be joyous at the “bi-partisan” voting from those so-called Republicans, but how many Democrats vote against Obama and his minions. Not many, if any at all.

Many on the left seem to feel that the Republicans and those on the right are the “party of no”. That may be correct. After all, there is nothing in the Constitution about free healthcare, the government paid killing of unborn babies, free contraception, and same-sex marriage, but if the left had their way, the government,(the tax payer) would be paying for all of it. I guess the liberals have this idea that if they want it, it MUST be right. Unfortunately for them, a large population sees it another way. I guess to the eyes of the liberals, conservatives, or anyone else on the right are just second-class citizens who don’t deserve to enjoy the rights ensured to them by the Constitution.

Many moderates, independents and conservatives like the idea of a smaller government. Many Americans do not want to pay for the contraception, killing of the unborn, and food stamps of those who may not want to pay for it themselves. Thomas Jefferson once said, “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.” It amazes me that the left can’t see this.

According to Gallup, the approval rating for Congress as of December 2013 is at just 14 percent. Obamacare approval is at only 44 percent. If only 44 percent, (or less) of the people like it how did it get approved? All the “blood shed” from the Obamacare failure is on the hands of the Democrats since 100 percent of the Democrats voted for it and NONE of the Republicans did, yet it is still forced down our throat. Need it or not, like it or not.

We have already seen the damage a socialist president can do to our country, but can an America-loving conservative, patriotic president have issues? Of course they can. Like presidents, presidential candidates can be good and not-so good. We do have wonderful prospective candidates like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, and Sarah Palin. We have already seen the leadership value in Ted Cruz in his fight of stop train wreck that is Obamacare. We are also quite familiar with the capabilities of Rand Paul and Sarah Palin. Can these people make mistakes? We all make mistakes. However, we can all count on the liberal mass “lame stream” media to find the Republican faults. A viewing of the documentary “Media Malpractice” proves it without a shadow of a doubt.

I find it staggering that the left seems to have jumped in with both feet to the Hillary “Butcher of Benghazi” Clinton bandwagon. During the 2008 election Democratic primary race Hillary was asking if any of her opponents would answer a 3 A.M call. After the terrorist attack on Benghazi I think we know the answer. To put you heart and vote into such a negligent person is foolish at best.

Every president has put their hand on a Bible and one on their heart and said, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Hillary isn’t even the president and she has already failed the four men who were killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack. Maybe next time there is an attack there will be a new video to blame it on.

 If a Republican loses, America may be at the edge of an abyss from which there is no return.. It is past time for a good, God-fearing, Republican, conservative person to be in the White House, no matter who he or she is. I know it would boil the blood of liberals if Sarah Palin won the office, but in the words of Hillary herself, “what difference does it make?”
