Reblog — The 2012 Elections: A Death Knell for the Christian Right by Kevin Swanson

The 2012 Elections:
A Death Knell for the Christian Right

By Kevin Swanson

Well, the dust has cleared on the Obama agenda. After four years of Barack Obama’s presidency, we have socialist medicine through mandated insurance, more government-funded abortions, and about $4 trillion of extra debt. Knowing this, I’m apparently supposed to vote for the Other Guy. Never mind the fact that George W. Bush left office with a 1.5 trillion dollar budget deficit (inflation adjusted), and it was his appointee to the Supreme Court who gave the final push to Obama’s socialist medicine plan.

I am told to set all this aside in this election and to endorse the Other Guy for President — the latest elephant in the room. He must be better — but why? I am offered reasons for supporting the Other Guy, and here they are:

(1). The Other Guy is a Mormon, and everybody knows that Mormons are better than Muslims. Clearly, not all Muslims or Mormons are polygamists. Then again, it is possible that President Obama has cooled on his “Muslim faith.” Or maybe the Other Guy has lapsed with his “Mormon faith.” If Mormons or Muslims led the nation for a hundred years, where would we be? I wonder. Suffice it to say, I’m not convinced that Mormons are better than Muslims.

(2). Everybody knows that Republican presidents are more conservative fiscally than Democrat presidents. This may be true in the minds of Republicans who enjoy listening to Republican rhetoric. I know. I know. Most conservatives do not want to be confused with the data. But here it is.

Annualized Growth in Spending:

  • Reagan — first term — 8.7%
  • Reagan — second term — 4.9%
  • Bush I — 5.4%
  • Clinton — first term — 3.2%
  • Clinton — second term — 3.9%
  • Bush 2 — first term — 7.3%
  • Bush 2 — second term — 8.1%
  • Obama — 1.4%[1]

Bipartisan Agreement — How is that working for you?

 

I snagged this on facebook recently and failed to jot down who posted it — so whoever it was thank you!  If you will comment below, I would love to give you credit for the graphic.  If you created it, you nailed it.  It really sums up the ‘bipartisan’ problem.  Now if I could be so bold as to suggest the solution.  Let’s protect one another’s individual God-given, unalienable constitutional rights. No compromising  my rights or yours, especially not for a false promise of ‘security’ because it cannot and will not be guaranteed.  Now get out there and watch each other’s back and protect each other’s rights!

Let’s Stop the War on Drugs, Bailouts, SOPA, NAFTA, UN, Bailouts, Foreign Wars, the FDA, Corporate subsidies, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Government run schools, Income taxes, Capital Gains taxes, etc.
