Top 10 “must do” list to revamp the GOP for a win in 2016

In Uncategorized on November 8, 2012 at 10:03 AM

Whether you like the results or not, the left whooped our arses in this last presidential election. If it would have been a baseball game they would have called it in the fifth and invoked the mercy rule.

The left definitely listened to their demographic and capitalized largely on the citizens that reside in those certain groups. A very smart tactic that worked and made the grand ole party look like amateurish mush in need of critical life support.

The overwhelming message that glared out at me this election was how out of step the GOP was with the American people and how well the left executed.

Many within the GOP, the Tea Parties, conservative grassroots groups, Liberty groups and PACs were really doubting these guys could win. As we lifted Romney/Ryan to the pinnacle we would surely realize that no matter what we said or did this cardboard almost wooden, lackluster, no fight in the dog, Mormon elitist, pansy waisted, type robot could win the battle to be our next Prez! Heck, even Ryan didn’t resign his elected post and retained his seat! Even he didn’t think they could win!

I kept asking myself while watching the GOP shove these two machine proteges down our throats, “is this the best representation of the people that are in our midst? Surely not! My kids kept telling me, they are so lame, Dad! We need someone young and cool! They don’t understand us.

What is it going to take? Where do we go from here? What must be done to harness the strength of our youth, the wisdom of our grey hairs, the power of the womens vote, the face of a diverse nation?

I personally believe the GOP has been handed their last chance to prove themselves worthy of being called the Grand Ole Party! Time for the fossils to step aside and allow a new breed to take over the species. Time for it’s young to rise up, mature quickly and replace the sick and nimble. Third party? Renewed party? I think only time will tell but it’s time for change!

First, we must acknowledge that conservatives, the GOP, the right, Tea Party/Liberty groups will never win another election unless we restructure our approach to winning an election. Period! End of sentence!

The GOP/Conservative side has to realize we have a problem and that problem must be corrected or done away with completely and start over. We must be willing to restructure or get the hades out of the way and let the people lift up a candidate of their choice.

I have humbly prepared a top ten list, pretty much in the way David Letterman may do. It is a list that may grow. But after a restless night of thinking I awoke with these thoughts. Like or dislike, if we are to save our country from the leftist socialist they must be done and better than the left has done with these groupings.

1) Immigrants:

They are now a viable voting block whether you like it or not, they arent going anywhere and they represent perhaps 30 to 40 million voters and are growing exponentially every day. In 4 years under current leadership they may grow to around 100 million or so strong and the whites will be a whimsical minority. Give them a job, a home, status, a little respect and they will vote for you every election. You cannot ignore that fact nor will we ever be able to overcome those numbers no matter what we do if we don’t change our approach.

First, make them legal! Yeah, yeah, sending them back across the border and close them is not going to happen nor do they want to go home. They are now a part of us because we didn’t address the immigration issue 10 years ago. Our bad, now deal with it!

Make a concerted effort to capture at least 51 percent of this demographic. Give them a 3 point plan to become legal, pay their share of the tax burden, contribute as all Americans do and encourage investment in America instead of forcing them to send their money back to their homeland. Provide a way to for them to plug into the system instead of being a drain on the system.

2) Foreign policy

We must get our troops home and safe now, yesterday! We are spread out all over the place. I have heard some wrongfully say, we shouldnt be on any foreign land fighting other peoples wars. Listen up to this! We must maintain a strong military that is strong and vibrant and has a reputation of you muck with us or our allies you will suffer a certain death with the greatest force on tbis Earth that could send a punch that would knock your head off quickly and precisely. Hint at attacking us and the war dogs will be unleashed mightily and steadily till you are annihilated or neutralized. Untie our soldiers hands and don’t restrict or disengage their rules of engagement. Then it will be simple to minimize our involvement and leave strategic reactionary forces in hot spots to neutralize any aggression appropriately and swiftly if need be. Gives these guys the full ability to protect themselves an neutralize the opposing forces.

We need to be on our homeland, looking out across the globe like a cobra, ready to strike with a vengeance if you mess with the US or it’s allies, particularly Israel.

Let the rest of the world know we have the mightiest fighting force in the world and we will unleash it if need be with a quick response that will light up your sky like the 4th of July.

The enemy respects a strong military force and if they fear you they will respect you.

3) Fiscal conservancy

Pass a dang balanced budget and cut our taxes. Cut the fat! Reign in pork barrel spending! Lower taxes! Cut the deficit! Assume a position of authority on this subject.

My personal budget goes all to heck if I spend more than I make, why can’t we expect the same from our government of whom on average we send 20 to 50 percent of our income too. We call ourselves one of the wealthiest nations in the world based on our GDP, yet we are 16 trillion and growing in debt. We are broke! We are bankrupt!

Plan to decrease the beuracracy and eliminate wasteful and unconstitutional departments. Show the US some value in me sending a great portion of our hard earned money to the government, reassure me it will be spent wisely.

4) Put the fight back in the dog.

The one constant thing I keep hearing about Mitt Romney is that he too easily backs down from a fight or doesn’t stand up strong on the issues. He is not unlike a dog that is on a shock collar. Even after the shock collar is removed he looks around like he is gonna bark but withdrawals and retreats from barking further because it may be painful or uncomfortable for him. But if he just went ahead and barked he may realize the collar is not constraining his desire to bark.

The people want a man or woman with some spunk and vitality. Not over the top, just passionate about his or her platform.

5) Realize women call the shots

The women run things period! Momma aint happy nobody happy! My wife and my mom are the two least people that I want to piss off. The right has done a poor job of tapping into a woman’s creativity and ability to run a nation and have dismissed them and have resigned them to a mere support role.

A woman can do more before daylight than most established GOP elected men can do in a lifetime. Harness this power, understand them, use their knowledge of organization and structure to run this country and promote them up through the ranks. They are naturals!

There is a reason that more women were elected to key seats than at any time in our history this last election. They have the ability. They know how to get the job done and do it very well. And also they have a hormone thing that turns them into super women for a week out of the month which could serve us very well dealing with a dictator or for pushing a new bill through the senate or house.

Women are also tired of seeing this country ran by less than manly men. If you happen to be a man and in office, realize you haven’t done such a great job the last 250 years or so.

Oh yeah, and keep your pants up! The last thing a woman wants to do is consider casting a vote for someone who reminds them of an ex. Being elected to office shouldn’t automatically elevate you in your mind to Greek God status feeding grapes to your harem nor does being elected by your peers give you the right to do so. The exception being Harry Reid on the left, sorry about that visual.

6) Reach out to the kids, apply the ABCs

It is as simple as ABC for reaching our kids. A-Acknowledge they are our future, exist and are very important for our future, B- Be there to listen to them when they speak, C- Care about their issues.

Sure it is easy to dismiss a child and what they have to say as irrelevant or lacking understanding. Kids these days are attuned to what is going on in our world and they understand more than you think. We must reach out and touch the kids and ask them to contribute. Remember the curly headed, smelly, zit faced 8th grader is your voting block in 2016 and beyond. They are also dying to vote for someone that looks more like them and that understands them.

8) Replace the fossils, infuse the party with new blood and get rid of stinking thinking.

Which brings me to my next subject. A young face with new fresh hip ideas. Tres Wittum comes to mind! Look him up! Good looking, well dressed, young and willing to listen. (He would probably be embarrassed by these comments but he is more of what we need.) Sally Absher, TN state Executive Committee woman, a female, well spoken and versed on issues that are relevant to our cause on the right. Bobbie Partray, we all could learn from this person. Tres impressed me recently when he posted on Facebook recently and I took away from the posts that something is awry within the GOP and something must change. It may be time for him to launch his political endeavors. Notice I didn’t say career, we don’t need career oriented politicians, we need Americans who are going to stand up and be accountable and if it means pushing off the old outdated party, so be it.

7) Don’t rain on the rainbow warriors parade

Face it! The alternative lifestyle is a big portion of our landscape and they are very passionate about the issues. The homosexuals are a huge voting block and are demanding their voices be heard.

Ok, I know I take a risk here with socially conservative (gotta get rid of that word conservative) folks who will say they are sinners and they are going straight to hell!!!! Well aren’t we all sinners and werent we all going to hell the day we became accountable? Doesn’t the blood of Jesus cover all our sins and isn’t it good enough for all sinners?

Whew! I’m gonna hear the flak on this one. Allow me to finish please. What better way to reach “sinners” than to accept them into your flock and show them a kind and gentle God who had the ability and is willing to love all his sinners, his creation. I believe in the common theme worn by many youth on their wrists for years “What would Jesus do?” Ask your self this the next time you want to harm one of them. I think you know the answer.

8) Get rid of the religious nut jobs, give our churches a voice

The Church and it’s leaders have lost their way. The UN has infiltrated them with lofty goals of eradicating poverty through a deceptive MDGs or Millenium Development Goals and have stripped them of their ability to speak out of fear of losing their tax status.

This is such a sad statement that the church has allowed themselves to be muted from their pulpit because they fear speaking up and losing a little money. After all, in these tough times the church should be there for us everyday, in our hearts, not in some log jammed coporatacracy of what used to be a church. Remember, this is why you were granted this luxury of a tax exemption.

We have to release them and encourage them to allow them a hand in re shaping our future by influencing Christians in this country and in their congregations.

Abortion? I will simply say we need a consistent voice on this subject. Many young people are being pulled on this issue and our message must be clear and distinct. Do away with the rhetoric about it. No mixed messages.

9) Get rid of the word conservative or grassroots

The label conservative does not have the same meaning it did 3 years ago when I started my activism. The conservative of old meant you believed in less government, less taxes and more freedom. Now, everyone is a conservative! When the GOP took over and infiltrated the many Tea Parties and conservative groups with their big money machine and heavy influence we lost our way. Neo cons, RINOS even the left is calling themselves conservative. They have diluted it’s meaning. We are all now conservative and we all can’t be, we just can’t, it doesn’t work that way.

10) Resonate with the black and minority voters.

The GOP is about as white as the driven snow that is falling on the East coast today. Have you ever been to a GOP convention or meeting or even a Tea Party or Liberty meeting for that matter? White, all white. Not that it is intentional or we are racist but that it is the product of our involvement. Our message does not include them. They, for some reason are not hearing a message that resonates with them.

Take poor ole Allen West for instance. Black man with big cahunas and a strong voice and he can’t muster enough votes to at the time of this writing to swing a win inside whiteys world. A disconnect here and it must be fixed.

Just as Madea, the lead character of many Tyler Perry films might say to the GOP “you better rec-o-nize fool!” Tapping into this very passionate block of patriots who have seen tough times and are not willing to forget is an essential place to be.

Reach out to this group, find common ground ask them where we have gone errant, re structure and embrace them while succumbing to their needs and desires. They are strong Americans looking to be led or to lead the flock, give them this opportunity.

I know I said 10, consider this one a bonus.

11) get rid of the excessive lobbyist, big-money corporate types and NGOs off the floors and in the hallways of the House floor and The Senate.

We dont need our elected officials taking bribes in a hallway from a corporate lobbyists to protect their interest. Put a 250 foot barrier around our elected officials offices and state houses and ask them to have no access to our representative bodies. After all, we can gripe all day about a bill or issue but if a guy in a fancy suit slips our rep with an unknown dollar donation, no wander we can get anything done to the contrary.

Summation:

I am only a blogger and activist. These comments above are only my opinions based on my observations. They do not represent a group or a party. They are only my opinions and thought.

Chew me up and spit me out if you wish but remember I have a personality disorder that relishes being in the fray, I find comfort and an odd peacefulness there. It makes me feel alive and in a wierd way sorta like channeling a modern day Patrick Henry type patriotism.

Our system is broken, the GOP is floundering and we have too many elitist running this country and the party of the so called right are completely out of touch and have lost their way.

I will end here! What we are doing to overcome the lefts punch is not working! Here is my submitted plan. Will anyone take the ball and run or will we simply stay in our comfort zone and lose again soundly in 2016.

My parting words,

IT AIN’T WORKING! GET YOUR SPIT TOGETHER AND DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT OR GET OFF THE POT AND LET AMERICA SAVE ITS SELF !!!!

TN State Executive Committeewoman links Comprehensive Plans to Agenda 21

In Agenda 21 on April 4, 2012 at 10:05 AM

It was only a matter of time before our politicians would finally see the light. The RNC, the GOP, select Democrats and State Executive Committeewoman Sally Absher are now speaking loudly and are talking about the dreaded Regional Growth Plan and it’s close ties to Agenda 21.

Also on board recently and sounding the alarm is Tn State Executive Committee Woman Peggy Lambert and State Senator Jim Summerfield!

On the flip side, the opposite is true in Bradley County and the region! Chattanooga/ICLEI/Recalled Mayor Ron Littlefield/Beth Jones/Bradley Planner Corey Divel/Mayor Gary Davis/Mayor Tom Rowland and many others in Bradley County are still pushing the Agenda 21 Growth Plan as the “plan of all plans” despite warnings from within their own party!

Please stay tuned and read the letter below from Sally Absher! You will clearly see the line of demarcation that is continuing to divide our state! Some continue to move forward, while others like Sally, Peggy and Jim are attempting to halt it!

I can’t figure why the “powers that be”, the decision “makers and shakers” of this huge unconstitutional tax burdened, highly regulated, land grabbing growth project are still moving forward as fast as they can while their State Executives and the RNC are saying halt!

On the other hand, I believe I do understand! As a father of three, I think I am qualified to make this judgement call. They are acting as a child in a candy store wanting that one piece of candy they can’t have. In this case that one big federal grant, and they are lying on the floor, on their back and are kicking and screaming, “Daddy told me if I was a good boy, I could get that piece of candy or in this case a few measly million dollars of grant money, and I’m gonna lay here and resist till I get my way!” “Because the Mayors are saying its good for the local economy!!!”

It is obvious to me that special interest, lobbyist, the PPPs and the NGOs have got our politicians ear, not the parties that are representative of the people! This is the sadness of all this!

We are witnessing the slide of our political machine that is supposed to be representative of the people, melt off into the abyss! Our local, State and Federal bureaucrats have let the proverbial cheese fall off the cracker! The lust for money, the promise of power, greed and a misdirected plan has hijacked our local representatives and are unfortunately are influencing their decisions!

They are no longer representatives of the people but are minions, stooges, dare I say, “useful idiots” of an International Socialist engineering scheme that has captured and took over any decision making skills they may have had!

I feel sorry for the whole lot! Can you imagine where they are now! They have gone from, in a very short time of being the hero, the bringer (if that’s a word) home of the big piece of the pie to the persons who are now being held responsible for engineering the scheme that makes us a socialist nation with bigger plans for the eventual takeover of our country by a New World Order!

Now because of their poor leadership, people in their districts will soon be living in POD communities, stacked in little HUD houses, looking begrudgingly at the next scourge that may wipe out parts of the population so that we can be sustainable!

Because of these elected people, we are now living in highly regulated, annexed and expanding Urban Growth Development areas while assisting the UN in decreasing sprawl and living around uninhabital land reserves placed within a color zone!

We gotta annex so we can get those extra tax dollars from the ones we represent, you know!

In the meantime, we are witnessing the greatest loss of our freedom and sovereignty by land grabs and horrendous land use regulations of our time?

Can you imagine why they are not backing down after numerous calls from their leadership? It’s a pride thing now, we are in way too deep! Turning around now would mean they were right and I was wrong!

I believe honestly they would rather go to their grave knowing they destroyed our country than acknowledge that they were wrong! I see the quandry, I understand, I feel the pain, I really do! But it’s high time to do the right thing and reverse course! I understand feeling you are too deep into this diabolical international plan to turn tail now! But we must be realistic here!

I feel it is time to make it right and save face! I must either forge on or I must get slapped in the face with a big ole piece of humble pie!

Dont be that “useful idiot” too proud of this Regional project to ever save face. Its time to put on our big boy panties, suck it up, be a big man and admit to wrong doing and change course!

I can’t imagine a representative of the people continuing to fight till the last breath against cries from within their own party or from their constituency, but I imagine there is a few that will!

This house of deception is crumbling fast as more and more people are seeing it’s real intent! I would not personally want to be still holding the bag when it collapses!

Many lives are being directed into your imperfect storm! It’s time to guide them to safety! Let’s disassociate with ICLEI and shove off this International inspired growth plan, watch the free market take care of this growth thing all by it’s self with the best interest of the people in mind!

Don’t be that adult child that screams and pitches a fit long after they have been told “no!” Be the man or woman you were elected to be and represent the people!

Dear SEC Members, County Chairs, Young Republicans, College Republicans, and others,

First I would like to thank Peggy Lambert, our RNC Executive Committeewoman, for her report last Saturday in which she identified “the social engineering program known as Agenda 21″ as one of the top issues for the RNC this year. This is a very complex topic, and there are many components to the UN’s Agenda 21, from education policy to restricting rural development to “smart growth” in our urban areas. But the two areas that impact citizens across the state are the policies that affect the rural areas, and urban areas of our counties. We have seen an explosion in “Comprehensive Plans” – some at the county level, some encompassing multiple counties or even extending across state lines, as with the Chattanooga area’s 16 County 40 Year Plan. It is up to us to dig beneath the surface, and expose the over-reach of government and the waste and abuse of tax dollars to support these programs. Please understand – I am all for conservation and being a good steward of the resources the Lord gave me. What I am against is restriction of personal property rights and government making decisions on where people can live, work, and how they can get around in their community.

I have attached two fact sheets that will quickly bring you up to speed on the basics, as well as a figure showing the state of Tennessee from the stimulated reserve and corridor map that Dr. Michael Coffman drew up based on the Global Biodiversity Assessment Report and the US and UNESCO Man and Biosphere Program (google these). What you need to know is that this is the end plan, unless we stop this now. As with most incremental plans, this won’t happen all at once, but ultimately, red areas will be completely off-limits to all human activity, yellow and green areas are limited use areas (agriculture, etc. – for now). All people will live inside the black dots on the map, in “stack ‘em and pack ‘em” high rise apartments. No lake houses. No mountain cabins. No suburbs. You can also search YouTube for the video “Agenda 21 for Dummies” – about 9 minutes long. It’s a little dated and the ending is a bit hokey, but it is a good introduction to some of the national figures who have been in this battle for the past 20 years.

This is a lot of information to toss to you at once. There are several good speakers on this topic across the state, so if you would like for someone to make a presentation to your GOP club or organization, please let me know and I will help you get that set up. Another thing to remember is that this is a non-partisan issue (or maybe it is a bi-partisan issue). George H.W. Bush signed the agreement at the Rio Conference in 1992; Bill Clinton created the President’s Council on Sustainability; Mayors and Governors of both parties embraced these programs in order to receive federal grant money, and Barack Obama (along with the EPA) is pushing the pedal to the metal as far as implementing this. EO 13575, which established the White House Rural Council. This should be of concern to everyone who lives in a county with rural areas. It will be to the GOP’s advantage to get out in front of this quickly, but don’t hesitate to try to educate democrats as well. You might want to check out Rosa Koire’s book “Behind the Green Mask: UN Agenda 21″ available at Amazon for $14.37.

My apologies to the folks in the Chattanooga area who already received some of this information! Thanks for taking the time to learn a bit about this, and again, I urge you to do a search on the computer for “sustainable development” and your county or city. Or “comprehensive plan” and your county or city. You might be surprised by what you find!
