It’s Time to Get Mad

September 21, 2012 Posted by Frank DeMartini ADFTD@hollywoodrepublican.net

Fellow Conservatives, I started this web site four years ago in November 2008, after the worst defeat for Republicans since the beginning of the Reagan era.  My reason for starting it was very simple:  The Republican Party had to reinvent itself because we had lost touch with mainstream America.  That has been my goal and that is what I have endeavored to do both in my writings and with the writings of my colleagues.

Apparently, I wasn’t the only person that reacted to the 2008 massacre.  A groundswell started after that election which led to the formation of the Tea Party and additional strong conservative grass roots movements.  It started when the general public got sick of the stimulus, the deficit spending and then the passing of Obamacare, the largest attack on our freedom in this country since its inception.  About four months ago, the Supreme Court in a surprising 5-4 decision determined that Obamacare was Constitutional; a decision I still cannot reckon intellectually, but I and the rest of the country have to accept.

That anger generated by the 2008 election and the ramifications of it led to the Republican sweep in 2010.  The far swing to the left by Congress and the President, to echo a famous Japanese Admiral after Pearl Harbor, “did nothing but wake a sleeping giant.”  We had proven we were still in the majority in the country.  We had proven this country was still center-right.  We took over the House and almost succeeded in taking over the Senate.  And, we would have if we didn’t nominate two candidates that were complete mistakes in Delaware and Nevada.

At the state level, we turned many Governorships and Legislatures red for the first time in decades.  Blue states such as Wisconsin and New Jersey had Republican governors who vowed to change the way the system works.  Both Scott Walker in Wisconsin and Chris Christie in New Jersey proved that actions led to success and the system began to change.

Then, we got lazy.

After a hard battle for the nomination, Mitt Romney became our standard bearer to lead us back into the White House.  He chose Paul Ryan as his running mate.

And, we got lazy.

Barack Obama

His Motives Aren’t Causing Him to Sweat

The excitement generated after the 2008 election and 2010 Republican sweep just doesn’t seem to be there.  I can tell you just from the hits generated by this blog that there is a malaise.  People seem to be more concerned about peripheral issues in this election than about the economy and foreign affairs.  In fact, I can tell you that even with the attacks on the US Embassies this past week, any article written about foreign affairs generates almost no readers.  Meanwhile if we write something controversial or something with a title that reeks of yellow journalism, the numbers are through the roof.

This sort of malaise is not going to win back the White House.

Right now, the poll numbers are not good.  Mitt Romney is not generating the excitement Barack Obama generated in 2008.  And, to be frankly honest, no one expected him too.  As Charles Krauthammer said, all Romney has to do is be Romney to win.  But, it’s not working.  Right now, the polls show a defeat for Romney is in the works.  The most unpopular President since Jimmy Carter.  The most left wing President ever.  The worst economy since the Great Depression –  And, a collapse in his foreign policy right in the election season.  This shouldn’t be happening.  We shouldn’t be losing.

So, my dear fellow Conservatives.  It’s time to get mad.  It’s time to get as mad as we were when the Tea Party formed.  It’s time to get as mad as we were when Obamacare passed.  It’s time to get as mad as we can in the next seven weeks.  The energy of the anger will spread and it will cause us to come out to the polls in record numbers and defeat Barack Obama.  We must win in Ohio, Florida, Virginia and North Carolina to even have a chance.  We are only ahead in one of those states right now – North Carolina.  So, if we don’t get mad now, we will have another four years of the current occupant of the White House.

Get mad and get mad quick.  If not, I can guarantee you this country will not be the same in 2016.

    You would think that as many republicans that are in congress, something could be done to stop this run-a-way administration……..It seems these congressmen are just sitting on their hands and waiting to start their next election process!!! It’s disgusting to me!!!!!!

    Least we forget, the Democratic Senate has been doing their job to ensure Obama gets away with being a run-away administration.

      Explain how a Democratic Senate “has been doing their job” when nothing they pass gets through the Republican House. I can’t find my 8th grade civics text, but if memory serves me, it “takes two to tango” when it comes to passing legislation.

      • Tom Donelson on September 22, 2012 at 8:09 pm

        If one refuses to tango, then there is no tango. Senate is required to produce a budget and they haven’t. It is the fault of the Senate for failing to do its duty for much of the gridlock. The Republicans have at least produce the budget. You are right, it takes two to tango and the Democrats are not responsible dance partner. Nice try thou.

    I have been angry for 3 years and am getting more so! I keep trying to think of ways to help in my community. I’m retired and I would walk to every house I could reach if I had materials to do so. But can’t afford to buy the materials. I’ve purchased what I can to let my feelings be known and argued the cause on various websites and contributed what I could to the campaign. But I live in a remote area–signs wouldn’t be seen–and there is no organized Republican organization. I don’t agree with all of the platform and don’t vote a straight GOP ticket just because. I look at the issues and study the candidates but we can’t survive Obama for another 4 years!! I agree–GET MAD EVERYONE!!

    Frank, “It’s Time to Get Mad”, or consider “a time to get even”,……. These lies, “Coptic Christians are the villains”, get half way around the world and the media never, never gets their boots on. Maybe, the problem is people are not listening. It is a self-diminished electorate, covered in several prior blogs.

    The New Left cannot survive reporting of facts!!! Yes, New Left controls all “eye-ball” to “eye-ball” communications in thses USA, still when confronted with facts, their tent literally folds.

    As regards Entitlements…here are facts:
    A History Lesson on Your Social Security Card
    1934 – 1980
    [social security card when first issued.gif]

    With 2012 elections 1.5 months away, many political TV ads will air warning about how Republicans want to take away (and reform) Social Security.

    Facts:
    1)Social Security Cards issued in 1934, under FDR (remember, one year earlier he took the USA off a “Gold Standard”), up until 1980, expressly stated:
    a. Both number and card were NOT to be used for identification purposes.
    b.Since everyone in the United States (since 1934) has a Social Security Card and number and a national ID soon became necessary, its usage soon caused it to become mandatory in order for citizens to conduct financial transactions.
    c. The printed message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was soon removed.

    When Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
    1.) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary,
    -No longer Voluntary
    2.) That participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program,
    -Now 7.65% on the first $90,000
    3.) That money participants elected to put into the Program, would be deductible from their income(s) for tax purposes each year,
    -No longer tax deductible
    4.) That money participants put into the separate but independent. ‘Trust Fund’ (Al Gore’s now famous “Lock-Box”) rather than into the general operating fund, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, ONLY and no other Government program. Now, this “lock-Box” is full of IOU’s.
    - Under Johnson, a Democrat, the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent (mostly on “earmarks).”
    5.) That annuity payments to retirees would never be taxed as income.
    - Under Clinton & Gore, Democrats, Up to 85% of citizen’s Social Security can be Taxed

    Since many legal Americans have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month –
    a. are now finding they’re getting taxed on 85% of the money that was paid to the Federal government to ‘put it away in a non-existent “Lock-Box,”’ may be interested in the following:

    Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?
    A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratically controlled House and Senate.
    Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
    A: The Democratic Party.
    Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
    A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US
    Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
    A: That’s right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.

    NOTE: Immigrants moved to America and at age 65, applied for and began receiving Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

    Remember when going to vote on Nov6:
    After violating the original contract (FICA), Democratic TV ads and pundits will tell Americans…it’s Republicans who want to destroy Social Security. Democrats and Democratic House and Senate have voted to dismantle FDR’s original Social Security Program, thusly Democrats have already destroyed FDR’s Social Security Program.
    There’s nothing left for Republican’s to destroy, even if they tried!!!
    And the worst part about it, most uninformed citizens will believe DNC’s lies!
    Vote massively this 2012…there’s massive fraud, lies and chicanery goin’ on. America is on life support. Take 10 to 15 friends with us to vote. America needs We The People. God Bless America. Amen.
