The Mandate: Republicans Were Elected to Stop Barack Obama, Not to Work with Him

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: What I want to do here is cut to the chase. The result yesterday is exactly what I said it would be. The Republican Party now has one of the most important and unquestionable mandates a political party has ever had at its junction with American history, especially a political party which did not run on a national agenda. The Republican Party purposely stood mute nationally.

Now, if you go into the races, the House and Senate raises all over the country, you will find that many Republican candidates ran specifically against Obamacare, and that is an important note to make and an important thing for you to remember. Individual Republican candidates won, and they won big. They won in a wave landslide running against Obamacare. The national Republican brand or image didn't say a word, which makes the mandate that they have all the more incredible.

It is rare that a political party running for office in a midterm election not standing for anything ends up with a mandate, and they have one, and it is the biggest and perhaps the most important mandate a political party has had in the recent era, and it is very simple what that mandate is. It is to stop Barack Obama. It is to stop the Democrats. There is no other reason why Republicans were elected yesterday. Republicans were not elected to govern.

How can you govern with a president that disobeys the Constitution? How can you govern with a president that is demonstrably lawless when he thinks he has to be? The Republican Party was not elected to fix a broken system or to make it work. The Republican Party was not elected to compromise. The Republican Party was not elected to sit down and work together with the Democrats. The Republican Party was not elected to slow down the speed the country is headed to the cliff and go over it slowly.

The Republican Party was elected to stop before we get to the cliff. And that's the mandate: to stop Obamacare; to stop amnesty; to stop the open borders policy of Obama and the Democrats; to stop the Big Government assault on the free enterprise economy; to stop national security policies that have allowed terrorist networks all over the world to pop up and fill a vacuum created by the absence of the world's lone superpower on the world stage. That must be stopped.

Thank you, "W" Except, for my 'Quotes' all other is rhetoric based on my 'opinions' that are based on Facts (most of the time) Facts can be argued, opinions are my own, but can be changed by 'Facts'!  

As, to play down 'my' (your) religious beliefs, that is hard to do: Being a Naturist, one would have to 'play' down Nature, and that would be 'unnatural'!  I don't argue, that the Gap between the 'Haves' and the 'Have Not' is not getting bigger, what I'm stating is as the Population grows, the percentages change.  If more 'below' the Poverty Line are born, then that population, grows accordingly.  Its applies to all 'segments' of our economic society! 
I do have a 'problem' and that is trying to break all concerns  down to their smallest part, and then try to make sense of those parts, to understand the Whole Concern, if there is really a concern, to start with! 

"My Opinions, based on my Crystal Knowledge, and Life's Experiences, and though the Filters of Higher Education !  I can't change those facts, only modify them! "

Thank you: 'W' ET Al," for sharing and caring, apathy will be the end of the USA!" quote 2014

Dr. Gene Lundrum,  I will admit you lost me on all those movements of our economic classes, but I think (I do have to re-read your post a few times) your beautiful rhetoric is the same as my thoughts.

As with you, my family was poor. However, my grandmother refused to think "poor" and said that if you were CLEAN, you were NOT poor. My grandparents sent one child to college and expected that child to work and pay for the education of the next child. The daughters went to formals in handmade dresses and they were to always be "ladies". There was a difference between "Poor" and "Low Class". Education and the desire to be educated and civilized was the difference

War On Poverty has spawned the true "Low Class". No dress or language usage requirements, no educational accountability, no job training, no family structure to DEMAND the above accountability in the child, no intolerance for the "lazy" factor. The least of the wise philosophers, Cliven Bundy, said it as well as you say it:  "We have again enslaved blacks by granting entitlements without accountability and personal responsibility."  My grandparents would NEVER HAVE ALLOWED THEIR FAMILIES TO BE THUS ENSLAVED. They followed Jesus Christ, God and the decree by Capt. James Smith:  "If you want to eat, you have to work!" Is that quote still a part of the APUSH American history text?

I am a music ed. major and have few deep thoughts. Sorry. I have a work ethic and love of God and that is my legacy from my family. America gave me a place to work and I think we have both had wonderful lives and we know we owe America back.

Well said Jo Anne.  I've known a lot of black people who always want to pull out the "my poor ancestors were slaves and had to work in the cotton fields" CRAP!  I'm sick of hearing it.  They didn't work in the cotton fields and neither did I.  And then I can show them a photo of MY grandmother working in the cotton fields with a sheet tied at her waist and pulling a baby behind her while she worked.  I'm sick of them acting like only black people have worked hard, long hours.  Not like many of them do THESE days.  I'm not interested in hearing ANYTHING about the past.  It's DONE.  It's OVER with.  NOTHING can be done to change the past.  We can only work in the PRESENT, and FOR the future. GET OVER IT, AND MOVE ON!

That's GREAT!    I LOVE IT!

Marilyn, I am saving this post in my Important Documents! Love it, girl!!!!

You're welcome!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
