Democrat or Republican, the State of the Union speech is always a pep rally. I’ll let the “smart” talking heads discern fact from fiction. My take on the speech:
Was there an athlete sitting by Michelle? Did he recently come out as being gay? Why is this celebrated? That doesn’t happen with heterosexuals. Biblical living and giving birth and raising families is almost shunned nowadays. Let’s celebrate a sodomite.
An American hero sitting next to Michelle was celebrated. I question the reason why. If you have to ask why I question their motives I won’t be able to explain it.
The deficit has been cut in half? Are you blaming GW for that deficit or are you saying it was run up by you and is now, finally, being cut down? The debt is still unimaginable. How are we going to shrink that?
Job creation and growth? Corporate taxes? Who creates tax laws? Who’s to blame for loopholes? The legislature and president who signed it into law. Don’t like the loopholes? Rewrite the law? Or is that too easy? Does that not give you a boogeyman to blame for the low information voters that you pander to?
Schools? How about vouchers so people could bring their kids to the best schools? Create competition. Competition creates winners and losers. Is that un-pc? We’re all winners. Everyone gets an award for participating.
Bringing jobs back home? The object of business is profit. Can’t blame business for going overseas to make their products cheaper. Our tariffs don’t reward American business. Our unions price us out of business. If I’m making a product, a widget, and I can have it made here in America for $20 an hour plus paying for insurance and pensions and China can make it for $2 an hour there’s no question; I’m going to China.
War and standing by Israel? We all hate war, I hope, but if we’re dumb enough to get into it let’s be smart enough to be as brutal as can be and win it. Do we really believe BHO will stand by Israel? The war on terror, or overseas contingency, is really an extension of the Crusades. They were started by the muslims. Look it up. Have the huevos to win it. Brutally, mercilessly. Nasty, yes. Necessary, also yes.
We’ve lost the America of yesteryear. We need to regain it. Opportunity for all. Rise to your ability. The Democrats are the party of big government and oppression. The Republicans are the party trying to tell us they’re for smaller government and opportunity. Both parties are leading us down a path of destruction. The Democrats are just doing it more quickly than the Republicans.
Bring back and legalize the Constitution. Let God back into our society.
Rep. Rodgers, in her Republican rebuttal, gave the other side of the pep rally speech. It was more positive and believable than BHO’s words. Will she get the Sarah Palin treatment of disrespect for birthing a down syndrome baby and calling on God to help us? I hope not.
Both parties claim enlightenment. Both parties seem to be in it for themselves. We Americans are lost in a world of insanity. But, it is our fault. We get the government we vote for. Will sanity and our Constitutional Republic ever make a return?
