Is Marco Rubio A RINO?

Marco Rubio Official SC Is Marco Rubio a RINO?

Last evening, when Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program, he endorsed Mitt Romney for president.

A darling of the Tea Party, Rubio may have shown his colors. Could he be a RINO (Republican In Name Only) in disguise?

Saying that Romney ‘earned’ it is rather odd.  Suggesting that Mitt Romney would be a “clear alternative” to Obama is a clear sign Senator Rubio has not taken any serious time to look at the former governor’s record in Massachusetts.  Equally, he has failed to examine Romney’s continued claims about saving the Salt Lake City Olympics.

Come on Senator, was Ronald Regan’s floor fight a recipe for disaster as you suggest?

Factually, a floor fight resulted “The Reagan Revolution,” which was  largely responsible for ending the economic morass from the Carter administration while establishing The United States of America on the international level as a force its enemies would choose not to challenge.

Senator Rubio is also showing his useful exuberance pushing Romney’s nomination to move the process forward.  Is Marco Rubio unaware that Ronald Reagan didn’t receive the Republican Party’s nomination until July, 1980 at the Republican National Convention?

Reagan’s late nomination was less than three months before the General Election on November 4th, 1980. With his landslide victory over incumbent former President Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan was sworn in as the 40th President of the United States on January 20, 1981. Riding the Reagan wave, the Republicans also won control of the United States Senate for the first time in 28 years in addition  gaining several governorships.

What’s the rush here, Marco?  The last time the Republicans ran anything less than a true conservative, they were beaten badly.  Let’s not forget the thumping of President Bush 41 by President Bill Clinton and Senator John McCain’s performance allowing Obama and his cronies to lead the U.S. into the economic abyss.

What is it you see in a Mitt Romney presidency, Senator?  The United States desperately needs smaller government, lower taxes, and less intervention, yet Romney’s rhetoric is inconsistent with the facts.

On issues such as the value-added tax, healthcare, Social Security reform, budget savings, ethanol subsidies, and the minimum wage, the positions Romney has taken are not the positions taken by a conservative.

Keep your powder dry, Senator Rubio; let’s take the fight to the convention if need be so that a true conservative can emerge and become the Republican Party nomination.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it; I’m J.C., and I approve this message.

Is The United States Postal Service Too Big To Fail?

 

USPS SC Is the United States Postal Service too big to fail?

Last year, the U.S.P.S. added another $5.1 billion in red ink to its ineptly managed, unionized, failing operation.

USPS in its press releases makes this claim: ”The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.” But does it make any sense that the USPS could be in the red while maintaining its bloated business model with no taxpayer support?  Of course it doesn’t.

Many states historically paper over their budgets by borrowing money. The USPS opened a $15 billion line of credit from the U.S. Treasury in the 1990s. They could make a stretch and claim that the treasury is covering its bills and hope we forget that every April 15th, taxpayers write checks made out to the U.S. Treasury.

Who do you suppose picks up the tab for the USPS commercials?

If that money borrowed is paid back, there’s no problem, right? Indeed there is; an equally inept Congress wants the taxpayer to once again foot the bill. Another way the taxpayer has continued to pick up the tab for such largess is due to the continuous rise in the cost of postage stamps outpacing inflation.

Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman, House Government Oversight Committee introduced H.R. 2309, The Postal Reform Act on June 23, 2011.  A major portion of the plan relies on discontinuing mail delivery on Saturdays.

Alternatives to Congressman Issa’s overhaul might include the following:

1.  Raising the price of junk mail to the same price as first class mail.  Studies have shown that mail advertising is ineffective; perhaps this would also encourage companies continuing to send their unwanted trash to discontinue this action.

The average American adult receives 41 pounds of junk mail each year. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, about 44% of junk mail is thrown away without being opened or read. People have become so inundated with advertising mail that they cannot or do not care to go through all of the pieces of junk mail that they receive, which leads them to just throw most of it out.

2.  Break up the postal union.  There is absolutely no reason for a  former government run agency to allow unions.  They predictably increase costs while getting union members better wages and benefits than employees with equal education and job skills.

3. Encourage the use of online bill payment.  It is reliable and costs nothing.

4. Need to mail a package or anything weighing more that an ounce?  Begin using UPS or FED X, both with sound business models and in no way subsidized by the taxpayer.

5. Immediately cease and desist from all forms of advertising.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it; I’m J.C., and I approve this message.

Earth To Harry Reid: The Voters Rejected Your Agenda

 

 Earth to Harry Reid: the voters Rejected your agenda

Image Courtesy: Poet

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is still among the walking clueless.  He has yet to allow for a budget to be voted on which is required by law. It makes no difference as his boss Obama and their attorney general play fast and loose with the United States Constitution (if they pay it any mind at all.)

Harry Reid saw the elections as the voters wanting compromise. Has he completely lost his mind? Or for the sake of being kind, shall his remarks be attributed to his loathing of America?  You see, Harry, the voters rejected the progressives and their policies in 2010. You would do well to get your party ready for a bigger thrashing on November 6th.

Remember your boss’s statement and the attitude he shows toward Republicans, “I won?”  Did he, or was he put in place by those who hold the real power?

Not since the elections of 1946-48 has a political party been so soundly eviscerated.

Reid could not be any more in touch with the sentiment of the voters who decimated his party than he was during the town hall meetings when he and Democrats refused to listen to the voices of “We The People”

In fact, we were called un-American for expressing our opinions.

So let’s clear a few things up for you, Harry:

  • The voters rejected the massive intrusion into their lives and increased costs of the health care law you passed using back room deals and bribes.
  • The voters rejected Cap and Trade
  • They also rejected the take over of banks, brokerage houses, and auto companies along with the above-mentioned hijacking of their health care system, representing 17% of the U.S. G.D.P.
  • Plain and simple, the American voter rejected the model of Hugo Chavez who is nationalizing everything he possibly can.
  • No Harry, the American voter rejects socialism, liberalism, progressivism, collectivism, or what ever you are calling yourselves in your twilight hours.
  • Let’s not lose sight of the main cause of our housing meltdown and subsequent economic crash.  While the talking points were all about “greedy Wall Street Bankers,” your party tried to hide from its duplicity in the Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac scandal.

Of course, your party was told that both agencies were at or near insolvency back in 2003 during investigations under George W.  Bush.  The result: the democrats’ lied, and thousands upon thousands of people lost their homes and life savings.

You remember good ole Barney from the House floor assuring members of Congress that there could not be a housing bubble, right?

Harry, the voter just wasn’t buying what you and your ethically challenged members of the House of Representatives were selling.  Thus, there was  the tsunami that swept them from Washington. In closing, wake up and smell the coffee; there will be no compromise. The 2012 elections can’t come soon enough for the voters you failed as leader of the Senate by not allowing the peoples’ business to be conducted.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it; I’m J.C., and I approve this message.

Can The Republicans Restore The Vision Of Our Founders?

Declaration of Independence SC Can the Republicans Restore The vision of our Founders?

“One thing is clear: The Founding Fathers never intended a nation where citizens would pay nearly half of everything they earn to the government.”~Congressman Ron Paul, (R-TX)

In theory, Republicans want a smaller government, one that leaves more decisions to the people with less intrusion into their lives. Unfortunately, once elected, many old-guard Republican members of Congress fall victim to their own lust for power and perks. They begin acting like Democrats, advocating programs that pander to their constituents in exchange for their future votes.

With the 2010 elections, Americans sent a clear message, “enough of the old leadership.”  Thus, a new breed of fiscal conservatism was brought to Washington to help begin restoring America’s future.

They have been constantly thwarted by the recalcitrant Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, who will not let Republican legislation, even bipartisan legislation be voted on in the Senate.

Harry Reid is an anachronism and still a true believer that raising taxes and continued spending is the answer.  Thus, largely due to progressive programs in the name of so-called “social justice,” America’s economic future has been sold, with the likes of China propping up the continued charade.

Apparently, he is no student of history as he might have learned that no country in the history of the world has taxed itself into prosperity.

It’s time for the Obamas, Reids, Pelosis, and the entire progressive movement to be soundly defeated in the November elections.

It’s Time To End The EPA Power Grab

Lisa Jackson SC Its Time To End the EPA Power Grab

The bureaucracy and the fuel-economy standards are a bad joke destroying the economic underpinnings of America.

Lisa Jackson is nothing more than a Obama administration environmental hack. 

On December 8, 2009, she said in a written statement that the finding, which declares carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases a threat to public health, marks the start of a U.S. campaign to tackle greenhouse gas emissions.

In doing so, she completely disregarded her own government’s findings.

Her decision has been the action she is best known for as EPA administrator. On this so-called “consensus” based upon political science, rather than actual science, the entire charade has been propagated.

As a result, she has forced numerous companies to leave the United Stated States and has forced auto manufacturers to make unsafe vehicles to comply with her fuel standards.  It’s not just the Auto industry she has decimated; other businesses that emit carbon are forced to pay to play. In doing so, that price is passed on to the taxpayer resulting in few dollars available to buy goods and services all for the sake of a socialist delusion and a gigantic wealth transfer in the name of Social Justice. 

All this is in spite of emails leaked showing the “scientists” who conducted many of the studies indicating their results were inaccurate.  Never let fact-based science get in the way of a crisis!  Greater analysis can be found here.

Man-induced climate change and the desire to fix that which isn’t broken is illustrated by China’s, India’s, and Russia’s refusal to participate in the agenda of Al Gore and his carbon-trading crooks.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
