Letter to the Editor: I refuse to believe that we are beyond hope

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

– Albert Einstein

There is a clear and present danger facing the US of A.

We can test Einstein’s theory and re-elect Mr. Obama, but I fear the result will take us over the precipice.

The second part of the peril is re-electing the core of today’s Congress. Their failure to check and balance the Executive Branch since the days of the contract with America is demoralizing. Many are, for their own reasons, nothing more than docile dupes of the Executive Branch or of their Party’s complicit leadership. The hypocrisy that rules today’s Washington is unmistakable as abundantly demonstrated by the following quote:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” – Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006.

The sad part is that a large segment of the electors have been bought through one type or another of governmental largess at the expense of the minority of remaining tax payers. The average elector is unable to recognize and comprehend the impact of their vote in favor of Mr. Obama. Too many missed the history class when they taught about the Weimar Republic of the 1920s.

The current Congressional and Executive leadership is doing everything to enable the destruction of one of the great societal success stories in the history of the world. Mr. Obama’s proposed alternative has been tried and has failed. To wit: Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, the European welfare states.

I refuse to believe that we are beyond hope. Will Mr. Romney be able to single handedly change the outcome? I doubt it. A more important question is: Is Mr. Romney willing and able to steer a new direction? I believe that he is with the help of an equally dedicated Congress. Will there be pain and suffering, yes. The American people are famous for their resilience at difficult times. We are now squarely facing one of the most critical moments in our history. It is on par with the Boston Tea Party, the onset of the Civil War, Pearl Harbor and the World Trade Center. The American people have demonstrated their ability and willingness to make hard decisions and to back their determination with action. That is what must be done on Election Day!

We Can Save America!

Sound letter. I'm afraid not enough people get it. Now, Obama wants to bypass Congress on Welfae reform. Increasing the ranks of recipients. It would seem that Socialism is likely coming to America, much to my chagrin.

You guys are so full of BS, I feel like I am watching FOX new.

Get used to Obama and stop crying.

As Rick Santorum, told a group of conservative Republicans at the Values Voter Summit on 9-17-2012, last weekend

"That smart people will never vote for Republicans".

What happened to the reported $150,000 to keep Rev. Wrights mouth shut. You know the same guy that Obama never heard speaking about his hate/disgust of America, Whites and Jews during twenty years of attending his services?

Yes my dear 1Paradise, you are one of those people and as the article above says you fall into Einstein's catagory of INSANITY.

Rolo,

I am sure you see that the load of Democrat we receive is constant and relentless. If they really felt positive about his actions they would not have to put others down for questioning what we, absolutely, have a right to question and comment about.

Yet we rarely hear about anything positive which their Savior has accomplished that is positive other than that Bin Laden is dead and GM lives. Two events in a forest of failure makes not a true leader. Oh I forgot Obama never rode with a dog securely caged to the top of his car!

Would any of these supporters go to a doctor who has had such a terrible cure rate then why do they believe it should be any different for the leader of the free world. Most of the women supporters would not even go to a hairdresser who did not give them the properly coloring/hair styling that they asked for. Just give him a second chance to do what? Just fail again.

Doctors bury their failures, Obama is burying this country under a mountain of debt, disrespect from other nations, and unfulfilled promises.

Bravo zoo. However, Odumdum didn't get Bin Laden, America did. His offing was years in the making, a gerbil could have been president that day and given the "go ahead" ... as for GM, it should have NOT been saved, it should have gone bankrupt and allowed to reorganize.

Obama remains the country's biggest disaster since Pearl Harbor ... May the lying crook, and minions, rot in Hades.

Does anyone have any thoughts about Connie Mack??

I'm a little reluctant to vote for him because his wife always voted opposite him on every important issue.

As far as the polls go, this may give some Hope:

Your missing Einsteins point! Voting for Romney or Obama is doing the same thing Americans have done for the last 100 years. It's led us to where we are today.

Romney may be willing to change coarse (he won't) but no one in the house or the senate will join him. We have passed the point of no return now. There is no way to cut the spending with out one party or the other losing elections. That is not acceptable to either party. The spending will be cut. Not by a any sane voices from DC. It will be cut by market forces. Math is not a political debate, or an ideology. It just is.

The sad thing is. We were warned repeatedly by the founding fathers about out of control governments. We all think "it's different now" or we are smarter now so that can't happen here. I also have some unicorns to sell. They even crap skittles!

I don't believe America will cease to exist. It will go on. It will be far different than it is today. We may start over with a new monetary system and form of government. History says that is usually what happens. $60 trillion in unfunded liabilities will eventually lead to promises we can't keep. Who gets the shaft and who doesn't will in part shape the future of the country.

Below is a quote from FOMC member Dick Fisher. The whole speech is well worth the read here. http://www.dallasfed.org/news/speeche...

Fisher: Just recently, in a hearing before the Senate, your senator and my Harvard classmate, Chuck Schumer, told Chairman Bernanke, “You are the only game in town.” I thought the chairman showed admirable restraint in his response. I would have immediately answered, “No, senator, you and your colleagues are the only game in town. For you and your colleagues, Democrat and Republican alike, have encumbered our nation with debt, sold our children down the river and sorely failed our nation. Sober up. Get your act together. Illegitimum non carborundum; get on with it. Sacrifice your political ambition for the good of our country—for the good of our children and grandchildren. For unless you do so, all the monetary policy accommodation the Federal Reserve can muster will be for naught.”

The one thing I sadly see consistently is the Liberal Democrats inability to look at the facts and comprehensively put two and two together. They are great at CNN talking points and name calling. Most Americans have not studied ecomonics,and that is also a large problem. Adding to our debt,to the trillions(and don't say it's George Bush's fault,Obama did this himself,he didn't reduce the debt),and printing money to devalue the dollar.....is a fact. Inflation to a much higher degree is going to happen. This is going to directly affect middle class Americans. Most people don't follow what has happened in Argentina. We are on a similar path to destruction. Do you think the liberal dummies will get it when Milk is $10.00 a gallon and gas is the same price ? Good luck USA if Obama gets in. I say you will get what you deserve.

Excellent stuff!!!!!!!and like your boldness. Since my Latin was acquired from Catholic mass I shall end with a Matthew 5:5

Beati qui lugent quoniam ipsi consolabuntur.

I hope I got it right? Thank god for Google.
