Sign Of A Legacy: How Obamacare Website Failures Exemplify The Obama Presidency

With a few weeks to go before socialized medicine becomes official law in this country, the Obamacare website is still seeing problems. People can’t access the website a lot of the times, and, when they can and want to talk to someone about their options, it is oftentimes difficult to talk to a representative. Reports have surfaced that the Obama administration knew full well that the website was having major problems before it launched, but they went ahead and did it anyway. They wanted to have their way and be right regardless of the fact that they knew it didn’t work, and this exemplifies the attitude the Obama administration has had when it comes to the way they  handle its business.

Just look at Obamacare itself. They still have no clue if it will work properly, and they didn’t when they passed it. They just wanted to have their way and be right. You don’t believe me? May I remind you when Nancy Pelosi infamously said that they had to pass the bill to know everything that was in it. It was the most stupid and nonsensical statement ever to leave a politician’s mouth, but it shows just how desperate Democrats were to force their socialism ideologies on the American people and please their leader Obama. They showed that they cared more about themselves than producing something that would actually be effective without hurting the American people.

The same can be said for the stimulus packages that the Democrats and Obama passed. They drove up our national debt, and they did little to nothing to help the American economy. Obama wanted them passed though because he wanted to have a big bill pass at the beginning of his Presidency to show that he had ultimate power, and he didn’t give thought to the long term consequences of passing such a bill would be like. That’s the way it’s been ever since. Obama gets defunct policies to pass because he wants to be right, and eh doesn’t care about the stress that it puts on the people he is suppose to represent.

So if you visit the Obamacare website page and get a message that it’s having issues, remember one thing. That message exemplifies the Obama presidency. It has been one of passing bills that knowingly have issues in order to further an egocentric man’s agenda. And if you think that’s the worse, just wait until health care is implemented. It will spell trouble for America, but Obama doesn’t care. Why? Because he only cares about himself.

Gay Is The Word: How Republicans Supporting Gay Rights Will Save The Party

       The last few weeks have seen the gay rights movement make great strides in gaining equality. First, a decision by New Jersey’s Supreme Court made gay marriage legal in the state. At first, Governor Christie tried to fight it, but he eventually gave in and said he would not be appealing the decision. Over on the west coast, Oregon is now recognizing gay marriages from other states, and New Mexico is hearing arguments to allow same-sex marriage in that state. 

     It’s a great time for the gay rights movement as more and more young people are supporting gay equality, but it’s not only the young people who are changing their tune on the issue. Minorities and middle aged people are also shifting their opinions, and it is making gay equality inevitable in our country Unfortunately, our party is not taking note of this. Instead, we are staying in the past with outdated ideas that will doom our party if we are not careful. 

      Just look at Republican politicians like Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann. They rail against gay people and gay equality, and they are the butt of jokes because of it. This wouldn’t be a problem, except for the fact that they are known leaders in the conservative movement. They make it seem like every other conservative is with them on issues of denying rights to the GLBT community when that it not the case, and they are costing us votes at the ballot box. 

     Those two are just the tip of the iceberg though. Other noted conservatives, such as Brian Brown, are taking their hate of gays to a whole new level. Brown even traveled to Russia recently to vouch for their anti-gay laws which are causing an outbreak of violence and murder towards the GLBT community in that country. Brown, as a proud conservative, is damaging the party with his out of date views, and it’s not going to make it easy for us to win an election with people like him in our party. 

   So what can we do about this? As conservatives, we must scream to the top of our lungs that we do not hold the out of date, hateful messages that some in our party may do. We need to make it known that we value liberty and justice for all, and that denying rights to gays and lesbians goes against the core values of conservatism. It is only through doing this that we can drown out the hate that is coming from some in our party.

Crisis Averted?: How The Government Reopening Spells Trouble For America

Well, as I suspected, the government reopened late Wednesday night just before we could default on our debts. Republicans in the House passed a Senate bill to reopen the government, and Obama signed it into law. While Democrats rejoiced, conservatives lamented that nothing was done to fix the national debt. While Americans expressed their  outrage, I must say that I am outraged at both parties and their behaviors throughout the shutdown.

I’ll start with my own party first. Republicans railed against passing a budget until parts of Obamacare were struck down, and then, after they had enough of that, they voiced their frustration about our country’s deficit. While this was all good and well even though I thought they should have had a CLEAR political message for not passing a budget, I feel like it was a complete political circus. That’s because, when it came time to take a vote, they sided with Democrats and passed the bill. If they wanted to truly make a difference, they should have stayed strong to their convictions, but now that they have sold us out, I feel like every Republican rallying hard to keep the government shut down did so because they want their names to be familiar in 2016.

Next, I’ll move to the Democrats. While it seems like the shutdown was their golden opportunity to work together with Republicans, they instead refused to talk at all, and they shoved their opinions down the throats of Republicans and Americans alike. Ring leader Obama was at the head of all of this, telling the media that he would not be pushed around because Americans love Obamacare without exception (yeah, right), and his party followed suit. They went on and on about how they would not back down, and how Republicans were the ones who allegedly caused the entire shutdown. It was a sickening display on the part of Republicans and Democrat alike, but one party disgusted me even more….the news media.

Each day, the news media placed the blame solely on Republicans, and this became the most obvious example of blatant media biased I’ve seen to date. Instead of reporting from a balanced perspective, they continually lambasted Republicans. They showed poll after poll that Americans blamed Republicans, and they put the idea into Americans’ heads that somehow they shouldn’t vote for them in upcoming elections due to this. It’s a sad state of affairs that the media has become like this, but it is our reality.

So folks, that’s who I’m upset with for the shutdown. I know many of you will agree, and many more of you will disagree with me (P.S. feel free to leave me an opinion below). Nevertheless, I feel like the government shutdown was outrageous in every way possible. The truth is though that, regardless of who I’m angry at or how outrageous I feel it turned out, i still feel that our country is in trouble. Each day, as i see the debt ceiling grow and grow and see Obamacare’s implementation inching closer and closer, I feel that we are in serious trouble if we do not keep our nation in check. We were founded on liberties that were meant to make America great and its citizens happy, and I feel like those liberties are in jeopardy the way our country is headed. We have time to fix it (shutdown being one of those times), but if we don’t our liberties may soon be lost forever, a truly scary though indeed this Halloween season.

With Default Looming, Democrats Rip Republicans For Trying To Protect America

(From guardiantv.com)

Here we are folks. In twenty-four hours America will default on its debts if nothing is done. While Democrats and their “my way or the highway” attitudes have been what’s hindering the country from moving forward, Democrats and liberal media outlets are pinning the blame on one group only, House Republicans. As I have said before, I think that House Republicans are being brave standing up to the establishment and hindering an extremely dangerous policy, Obamacare from going into place, but you won’t hear that from the liberal media outlets. Just look at MSNBC host Chuck Todd, who went off the rails in a partisan pouting party and practically scolded Ted Cruz for not taking the blame for the whole government shutdown. Then you have CNN who is reporting negative story after negative story about House Republicans as the supposed “end all, be all” date of October 17th approaches.

The simple fact of the matter though is that Democrats, though not being held accountable in any way by the media, are equally at blame as their Republican colleagues. After all, the government is supposed to be about checks and balances and both sides working together to reach a common goal, but that’s not what’s going on. Democrats will not even give a little on Obamacare and other policies, and Republicans are just making it known that that’s not cool. Democrats, in the meantime, have been trying to pin it all on Republicans, saying that they are going against the will of the people. I hate to tell them though, some of the laws that they cherish here in this great land were passed against the will of a majority of people.

Just look at abortion. At the time, most people in America certainly did not want abortion, but the Supreme Court did what they did. Liberals love to talk about the historic significance of Roe vs. Wade, but they love to bash Republicans trying to hinder the monstrous mess that is Obamacare from going into place because they say that Americans love Obamacare. Well, I hate to tell them, their political history has been one that forces Americans to swallow what they don’t like to make them feel better inside, and I would much rather have my officials doing things that would protect me and my ancestors and our rights, even though some may get upset about it, than have them rallying the deaths of unborn children. So, as the clock keeps ticking to the October 17th date, I want my fellow Republicans to stay strong. They may be unpopular at the moment, but sticking up for what one feels is right, regardless of others’ opinions, is the true test of a man or woman’s character, and people who do this are what make this country great.

The Week Ahead: Will We Default?

    It’s Sunday, and that only means that we have three days until the government will default on its debt if action isn’t taken. So what will happen in the week to come? As of yesterday, Democrats still were holding strong that they would not give the Republicans any leeway in the negotiations, and Republicans are sticking firm to their beliefs that giving into Democrats would harm America. As the next few days go on, I have a feeling that it will take a miracle for us to not default on our debts. If we do not do something though, the economy could suffer tremendously, and this could lead to America’s position in the world shifting drastically. So, as we go throughout the next few days, it will be interesting to see what exactly happens.

A Note To My Fellow Conservatives: Button Up The Sexism

While most of my posts deal with liberal ideologies that I disagree with, this post is for my fellow conservatives. Recently, at a Republican convention in California, buttons were sold that had sexist remarks toward Hillary Clinton on them. They said something to the affect of “Hillary KFC Special; 2 Fat Thighs,Two Small Breasts, Left Wing”. While not even being humorous (unless you’re an eighth grader I guess), these buttons made our party look bad. Liberal media outlet after liberal media outlet wrote about the story, and they used this instance to reiterate the claim that our party is one stuck in the past. If we continue to present ourselves with this image, we are going to fail as a party because no one under thirty-five is going to want to vote for a party with a checkered past of sexism.

I know. You will say that Democrats have done similar, if not worse things, to conservatives, but the fact of the matter is that shouldn’t matter. We need to be the bigger person when it comes to dealing with liberals, and this means not using dehumanizing attacks against our opponents. If we want to criticize Hillary Clinton, it should be on her flawed political thinking, not her body, and focusing on her body as a talking point only makes us look weak as a party. So my fellow conservatives, let’s get our act together. We don’t need any more under the belt attacks against liberals. We need a strong party message and to attack liberals where they are wrong politically. If we do this, we may just have a chance at a bright future as a party, but, if we don’t, conservatism may become extinct before we know it.  After all, Hillary may run in 2016, and this could be a great talking point on how we conservatives are out of date and out of touch.

Showing He Is The Cockiest President Ever, Barack Obama Puts His Agenda Above God By Threatening Military Chaplains And Priests Who Preach Tomorrow With Arrest

Barack Obama has proven that he is the most self serving and arrogant President America has ever seen. After deciding to force socialized medicine down the throats of Americans, he is now defending his signature socialist policy by reaching new lows. With the government shutdown looming, some federal workers are not being allowed to go to work, even if they volunteer there time. This even includes military chaplains and priests who have decided to volunteer there time tomorrow to witness the men and women of our military because, even if they want to preach tomorrow, they will not be allowed to do so. If they do, they could face military arrest under charges of sedition.

If I were President, I would be more than happy that these men and women have decided to take the high road and volunteer their time to witness to our troops, but Barack Obama is different than me. Instead, he is determined to be all powerful even if it means putting his agenda above God. So tomorrow, as you sit in church listening to your preacher or taking mass from your priest, remember that Obama doesn’t feel like the men and women in our armed forces deserve the same right as you do. After all, it would make him less than powerful, and that just wouldn’t be right, would it?
