Fire Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid!

It has been awhile since I’ve written anything. I’m not entirely sure why, except I’ve started up a new business

, and that has taken the lion’s share of my time of late.  I guess I was also a bit burned out… which I suppose is precisely what the followers of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” want.

That is not to say I haven’t been listening to all the political pundits on both sides of the aisle.  The discussions have been interesting in some cases, and laughable in others.  However, we’re now 6 short weeks away from the mid-term elections, and we have some important decisions to make as the electorate.

Since reading Robert Heinlein’s “Time Enough for Love” back in the 70s, I have been a subscriber to the “Lazarus Long School of Politics”.  His mantra was “Always vote, as there may not necessarily be somebody you want to put in office, but there is almost always somebody you want to keep out“.  Yes… a lesser of two evils policy.  That is pretty much where we as a nation find ourselves today.  Do we want more of the same BS we’ve been getting for years (yes… even going back to the days when Republicans had control of Congress), or are we really ready, as a people, to take responsibility for those we put in office?

I am sure you have all heard the new GOP catch-phrase “Fire Nancy Pelosi”.  After all, RNC leader Michael Steele is cruising all over the country in a large bus touting exactly that.  I am not just climbing on the GOP bandwagon by recommending we get rid of Pelosi and Reid.  We must remove them from their positions of power in Congress before they drag this great nation even further into the crapper.  The Republicans must take control of at least one of the Houses of Congress in order to restore something approaching a balance of power, if for no other reason than to keep the Marxist sitting in the White House from causing any more harm than he already has.

I remind you that I am not a run-of-the-mill Republican.  I am a fiscal conservative with a social conscience… and a borderline libertarian.  That said, I am not an anarchist, as many libertarians are accused of being.  However, since we live under a two party system, I tend to lean toward the Republican perspective, since the Democratic (read that as far left liberal) point of view turns my stomach.

So, how do we fire Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (and others of their radical, far left ilk)?  Simple:  As hard as it may be for some of you to do, it is imperative that you vote a straight Republican ticket in the upcoming elections.  The Republican you vote for may be a far right conservative, or a more moderate Tea Party candidate.  IT DOES NOT MATTER!! Vote for them, as this is the only way a balance of power will be restored in the Capitol.

This is the only way we will be able to rid ourselves of ObamaCare, Amnesty for all Illegal Immigrants, Cap & Tax, Card Check, The Fairness Doctrine, Redistribution of Wealth, Government takeover of publicly held corporations (i.e., GM, Chrysler, et. al.)… and all the other radical, socialist Big Government platforms the current administration wants to ram down our throats.  We won’t have another chance until 2012, and I fear that, if we wait until then, it will be too late.

Remember, our current financial mess was caused by the Government, due to their mandate that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac back loans made to people who never had any hope of repaying them.  This Recession (which certain economists claim is over… but I don’t buy it for a moment), was not caused by the greed on Wall St.  It was all about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac peddling bad paper (i.e., Mortgage Backed Securities), and covering it up… and they’re still doing it!

We recently bought a new house (well, not new… it’s 7 years old) in California’s Temecula Valley.  While house hunting, we came across a lovely home that was priced about 15% higher than comparable homes in the area.  In other words, this home would not appraise for close to the asking price.  It was a Fannie Mae owned home, and their terms were:  Pay their asking price, get your loan through them and they would only ask for 3% down, and would not require an appraisal! That was in April of this year!  So, this Government-sponsored organization hasn’t changed the way they do business one iota.  But I digress.

Take a look around you.  How many truly happy people do you see/know?  If you’re anything like me, you don’t see very many.  Could it be they are victims of the “Yes We Can” and “Change We Can Believe In” LIES?

Do yourself, and them, a favor this November:  Fire Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid by voting for the person with the big R by their name on the ballot.

Of course, this is just One Man’s View.  As always, we welcome your comments.
