fiscal conservativism (3)

Obama’s Heinous Favor
to Union Supporters;
NLRB Complaint
Outrage South Carolinians
When Barack Obama made his recess appointment of Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board in late March, 2010, many economists were shocked. Becker’s appointment,  in effect overriding a Senate Republican filibuster, was among the most appallingly partisan political IOUs ever paid and it openly signaled Obama’s opinion that all jobs are not created equal and only union jobs deserved legal protection. Becker, at the time a union lawyer with a particularly nasty resume, had repeatedly and unequivocally stated No worker should have any right to opt out of union representation.”
While work continues at Boeing’s new aircraft assembly site in North Charleston (in South Carolina, a “right-to-work-state”) President Obama set his dogs from the NLRB upon Boeing. The NLRB complaint is that Boeing is planning to build airplanes at a non-union plant in S.C. rather than at its home site in Seattle, Washington. In 2009, Boeing announced it would build some additional assembly lines at a new factory in North Charleston, South Carolina to aid in producing Boeing 787 airliners.  
The move was widely regarded as an economic measure for Boeing since Washington state laws support union-requirements that new workers must join a union to be eligible to work at a union site while South Carolina as a right-to-work-state . . . where each worker can decide individually if he wants to join a union or not . . . is less susceptible to high union pay demands. Of course, they were also naturally thinking of the crippling 2008 strike and the resulting brouhaha at Boeing’s Seattle factory by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace workers. 
Boeing execs have long asserted that being “knocked offline” by union demands was adversely affecting the business. Clearly, the new factory scheduled to open this summer, makes sense in light of Boeing’s concerns but the union has filed a complaint against Boeing and the NLRB has taken up the complaint claiming that Boeing used “unfair labor practices.”
South Carolinians are up in arms, "This is nothing more than a political favor for the unions who are supporting President Obama's re-election campaign," said S.C. Republican Senator Jim DeMint. "Unfortunately, it comes at the expense of hundreds of jobs in South Carolina and thousands of jobs nationwide." DeMint argues if the complaint goes forward, right-to-work states will struggle to attract jobs and the pace of jobs leaving the country and heading overseas will become a torrent. 
“It will have a chilling effect on job growth in my state and in the country,” said DeMint. Boeing and DeMint point out that the company has added 2,000 jobs in Seattle since the South Carolina construction began. That, however, is no sop to the union demands: "Boeing's decision to build a 787 assembly line in South Carolina sent a message that Boeing workers would suffer financial harm for exercising their collective bargaining rights," IAM Vice President Rich Michalski said in a statement on the union's website.
S.C. Senator Lindsey Graham, another Republican added, "If successful, the NLRB complaint would allow unions to hold a virtual ‘veto' over all business decisions. Left to their own devices, the NLRB would routinely punish right-to-work states that value and promote their pro-business climates." Since the jobless rate is 8.9% and this week saw the largest jump in new claims for unemployment in several years . . . the president’s contradictory claims notwithstanding, we are not seeing a true “rebound,” or “economic recovery” at all -- and his NLRB is doing everything they can to make sure that our economy never does recover.
In any case, this week has given us a “treasure trove” of other Obama contradictions and outrageous proclamations . . . .
ITEM: in other “outrageous news,” the United Nations is now talking about taking the United States to the World Court for “war crimes” associated with taking down Usama Bin Laden, the world’s most notorious terrorist.
ITEM: After dithering for three days before deciding NOT to reveal the photos and videos proving that Usama actually was killed because, “. . . we don’t need to spike the ball, that’s not who we are,” Barack Obama . . . GASP! went ahead and spiked the ball by making a visit to “Ground Zero” in NYC -- his first visit there since the 2008 campaign. Invitations to former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush to join in the victory lap photo op were declined.
ITEM:  Along with the atrocious recent NLRB actions against South Carolina and Boeing, Obama's administration is this week trying to force businesses bidding on federal government jobs to reveal political contributions . . . obviously this could have a chilling restraint on contributions to opposition parties and a positive effect for in-parties . . . an awfully bad idea.
ITEM: The contradictions just continue to mount up for Barack Obama. He allowed flag-draped coffins of fallen Americans this week to be published and of course, they wound all over the internet in the Muslim World. Meanwhile he won’t publish the death photos of Bin Laden.
ITEM: IF the Guantanamo site had been closed, the threads that led to discovering Usama’s location would not have existed. Obama has fought to close down that site for over seven years. He has also ordered his Justice Department to prosecute CIA (and other) interrogators who helped elicit the clues that finally tied together the whereabouts of Usama Bin Laden.
ITEM: Without the benefits and the threads provided by water-boarding and other EITs (enhanced interrogation techniques) evoking the eventual cooperation from the big three internees in Guantanamo, Usama’s location would still not be known. Mr. Obama has banned the CIA from using not only water-boarding but any EITs at all . . . thus handcuffing the nation’s intelligence-gatherers in the War on Terror. Mr. Obama has actually used the word “terror” recently and eschewed the phrase “man-caused disaster” that he originally preferred. In fact, to his supporters’ chagrin, Mr. Obama has almost totally come to adopt and even expand the “Terror War” exigency measures such as the Patriot Act, Guantanamo, and military courts which were first employed by George W. Bush.
ITEM: The Bin Laden death photos “would inflame the Muslim world” according to Mr. Obama who has banned release of that information. Mr. Obama has also told us that no real Muslim can be a terrorist (remember the great to-do that occurred when Bill O’Reilly visited the TV show “The View” and said “Muslims attacked us on 9/11”) then Obama's recently turned around 180 degrees and proved that the great Bin Laden actually was a Muslim who deserved full burial respect within 24 hours, including the proper ablutions, appropriate burial clothing and sacred words spoken above him. Some might complain that since Mr. Obama in 2009 released over 2,000 photos of Abu Ghraib prison abuses, it might be logical to permit one picture of Bin Laden’s corpse.
ITEM: Mr. Obama reaffirmed his loan of $2 Billion for deep sea oil drilling to Brazil saying, “We look forward to being your best customer,” meanwhile, this week his Department of the Interior has thrown new obstacles in front of land drilling; shallow-sea drilling; and, of course, deep-sea drilling anywhere in and around the United States proper . . . and this country has not built one single new oil refinery in the last 37 years because of congressional restraints . . . while the average price of a gallon of gas has reached $3.99 and the price of food has risen by 36%, Mr. Obama and Treasury Secretary Geithner and Federal Reserve chief Bernanke have denied any responsibility for rising prices and indeed denied that inflation was occurring at all . . . certainly there could be no connection between the Fed’s policies, oil-drilling bans and what we consumers face at the pump and the grocery store checkout counter according to them.
ITEM: Ward Churchill, of Colorado University infamy (he’s the fool who called the innocent victims of the 9/11 attacks “Little Eichmanns”) who was in Tucson, Arizona, with numerous Obama supporters of “social justice” got upset and threw a fit along with the other leftists present because a class advocating that Southwestern lands of the United States must be returned to Mexico was no longer a required class, but just an elective. 
The riot that ensued for the next three hours prevented a school board meeting from occurring. The syllabus of the class in question includes some real gems: “Thanksgiving was the first celebration of the beginning of genocide on the Native Tribes.”   Virtually everything taught in the class is seen only through the lens of supposed White racism and undoubted Marxism. “Capitalism is the oppressive economic belief that the rights of the wealthy are more important than the rights of the poorer working class,” etc., etc. ad nauseum. You can read the full curriculum at as well as seeing Ward Churchill’s mug in the videos. 
The group is calling for Obama’s and Eric Holder’s Justice Department to get involved and protect the students’ rights to hear this anti-American propaganda just as Justice got involved to protect a Muslim teacher’s right to be paid (and to pay for a substitute) during the weeks while she makes a “holy pilgrimage” trip to Mecca.   The teachers’ union, of course, backed her up 100%. One might expect that she could make her pilgrimage after retirement or during summer vacation (if she wasn’t so particular about being there for the Hadj (a.k.a. Hajj) pilgrimage dates) . . . but common sense is probably not appropriate here.
ITEM on the Periphery: Government Motors (a.k.a. GM) has produced a monumental advertising blunder equal to the worst in their history. The same people who decided a generation ago that the perfect GM car for Spanish, and South and Central American markets was their Chevy Nova (any wonder a car called the “Doesn’t Go” <No va>)  in Spanish doesn’t sell really well in lands where Spanish is spoken) have initiated a big ad campaign for the Chevy Camaro featuring an amorphous yellow manlike form. In 90% of the shots, however, the “head” of the yellow form is all that’s seen, and it looks remarkably akin to a certain sour yellow citrus fruit. Rajjpuut can’t speak for you, but he won’t be buying any LEMONS from GM anytime soon. A prediction: if GM and Chrysler ever actually do pay off their debt to the taxpayers who bailed them out, they will face bankruptcy again within ten years (which would be the third bailout for Chrysler: 1979, 2009 were the prior two).
ITEM of Curiosity: Since 1957 when Atlas Shrugged was first published, the three topmost enduring best-selling books year after year in the United States and Great Britain have been:
            #1 The Holy Bible
            #2 Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged (1957)
            #3 Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead (1943)
            It seems that even with those sterling results, improvement was still possible.   Since 2008’s election of Barack Obama to president, Atlas Shrugged has sold over a million copies which is the greatest sales that book has ever known in any similar time period. In 2009, 520,000 copies were sold worldwide. And, of course, Atlas Shrugged Part I has been surprising theater goers for the last three weeks and is now about to jump from limited circulation to 2,000 theaters this week. According to Freedom Works President Matt Kibbe, "In a lot of ways, that project reflects the ethos of the TEA (“Taxed Enough Already”) Party. You had Republicans and Democrats and Independents who feel rejected by the establishment joining the TEA Party, and the same process is going to happen with Atlas Shrugged: We're going to build a constituency of people who believe in limited government, fiscal common sense and individual liberty."

Nine Reasons to Hold the Republican Party

in Contempt, One Reason to Hope

1. 1. Despite the natural advantages of being a conservative group, they’ve been largely impotent since Ronald Reagan’s days.

All surveys for decades show the country is center-right in fiscal matters and Constitutional matters. Yet the direction the country has moved in since 1964, has largely been dictated by the ultra-progressive wing of the Democrats not by Republicans.

2. 2. The Republicans are inarticulate.

Except for Reagan, no one seems to have caught on to the simple Buckley-Will trick of speaking to 95% of the issues as opportunities to clarify exactly what Fiscal conservativism means and exactly what Constitutional conservativism means on a personal level to the voter-citizens. As a result, the lies and propanda of the left have dominated the political argument for decades.

3. 3. Republicans in the last 20 years have become Progressive Lite

Progressivism (we need to “progress” beyond the outdated and flawed U.S. Constitution) is an insidious cancer eating away at the American way of life; Americans’ freedoms and wealth; and the American Constitution and far too many Republicans such as our two Maine senators are continually voting progressive. Citizens can’t trust Republicans to be Republicans.

4. 4. Most Americans think being a “Pure Democracy” is a good thing and have never heard terms like “tyranny of the masses” because Republicans are seemingly afraid to defend Republicanism.

5. 5. Most Americans do not know that the most Republican Document in the world after the Declaration of Independence is the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution (the first 10 Amendments).

6. 6. Most Americans do not even know what the 10th Amendment is. Nor do Americans appreciate that above all other concepts, this is the one that makes America a place where you can vote “with your feet” and that keeps the size of government under control and the power of government as small as possible. Because of the 10th Amendment no place in America can get too oppressive (with taxes, for instance) because people can pack up and move to a place where more respect for the taxpayer is evident.

7. 7. Republicans are perceived as “holier-than-thou” and sexists and have proven they aren’t willing to be the major party in the country.

Unfortunate as it may be, abortion is the law of the land. Thanks to ridiculous Republican constraints against (very young girls; victims of rape; victims of incest; and women whose lives are endangered by childbirth) sentiment against the right-wing stance has hardened into virtual “abortion on demand” in this country. Commonsense says Republicans need to never say another word against any abortions but late-term ones for about 40 years and stick to areas where the country can agree with Republican stands (fiscal and Constitutional conservativism only). 56-60% of women vote against Republicans routinely because Republicans are seen as a male-dominated party and males, not getting pregnant, have NO RIGHT to decide the decisions that belong between a woman and her God.

8. 8. Unwilling to lose the most radical 8% of the ultra-right, Republicans willingly abandon the combined 27-30 % of conservative Independents and conservative Democrats. Ideas are important, but practical politics is all about winning too. The Republican Party has not since Reagan latched on to pure fiscal conservativism and Constitutional conservativism, common sense small government and integrity in politics as its guiding principles. And the present mess is just part of the price America has paid because the country's major conservative party has expressed very little common sense.

Some Republicans apparently are nearer to fundamentalist Islam than they are to patriotic Americans . . . that is, they believe their religion should be the dominant or perhaps only one allowed in the country. When Republicans willing ignore the doctrine of separation of church and state and insist upon teaching Christmas carols in public schools; and that Creationism must be taught in public school science classes they earn utter contempt. This is why school voucher programs are important . . . send your kids to private or parochial schools as you prefer, but don’t attempt to proselytize your version of religion upon the whole country. If Mormons tried to get “predestinationism” into public school science classes we’d all be outraged . . . what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

9. 9. Neither positively nor negatively have the Republicans shown any stomach for the fight over ideas. Every ridiculous progressive argument holds ten times more value in Americans’ minds than the most sound of Republican ideas. For example: 80% of the people believe these lies are true (they’re discussed** in the footnotes).

a. Nazis were Fascists

b. Nazis and Italy’s Fascists were both conservatives

c. Communists are liberals and the opposite of Nazis and Fascists

d. Communism is a benign philosophy at worst, and has worked well for many countries

e. Right-wingers are racists and are ruining the country

f. Feminism has been a great positive and belongs to the left

g. “Creeping Socialism” is a natural evolution and has been totally positive

h. The rich are the country’s enemies and need to be forced to do their share by super-high taxes

i. Government can create jobs

j. Socialism works real well and protects the poor

k. Just a little government tinkering can make good free-market systems much better

l. Lack of regulatory control played a major part in causing the present financial debacle

m. G.W. Bush and Conservatives put us in our present fiscal hole. That is, drove us into Obama’s metaphorical “ditch.”

n. Barack Obama is a great American patriot and statesman

o. ACORN has little to do with Obama or the Democrats

p. Bill Clinton was a great president

q. Bailouts and stimulus from government eventuall do work and put the economy back on track

r. Once we get past this present bump in the road, it’ll be smooth sailing for America

And meanwhile these truths go unspoken and unknown in America:

There is, however, one great reason for hope. A large group of natural conservatives, many of whom have great disdain for the Republican Party have taken upon themselves the role of activists pushing for fiscal conservativism, Constitutional conservativism, dramatically smaller common-sense government and integrity in politics. I give you the single-most Republican document in America since the Bill of Rights, the TEA Party’s “Contract from America” hopefully about 85% of Republicans (and perhaps 20% of Democrats?) will sign this pledge at:

The Contract from America

We, the undersigned, call upon those seeking to represent us in public office to sign the Contract from America and by doing so commit to support each of its agenda items, work to bring each agenda item to a vote during the first year, and pledge to advocate on behalf of individual liberty, limited government, and economic freedom.

Individual Liberty

Our moral, political, and economic liberties are inherent, not granted by our government. It is essential to the practice of these liberties that we be free from restriction over our peaceful political expression and free from excessive control over our economic choices.

Limited Government

The purpose of our government is to exercise only those limited powers that have been relinquished to it by the people, chief among these being the protection of our liberties by administering justice and ensuring our safety from threats arising inside or outside our country’s sovereign borders. When our government ventures beyond these functions and attempts to increase its power over the marketplace and the economic decisions of individuals, our liberties are diminished and the probability of corruption, internal strife, economic depression, and poverty increases.

Economic Freedom

The most powerful, proven instrument of material and social progress is the free market. The market economy, driven by the accumulated expressions of individual economic choices, is the only economic system that preserves and enhances individual liberty. Any other economic system, regardless of its intended pragmatic benefits, undermines our fundamental rights as free people.

1. Protect the Constitution

Require each bill to identify the specific provision of the Constitution that gives Congress the power to do what the bill does. (82.03%)^^

2. Reject Cap & Trade

Stop costly new regulations that would increase unemployment, raise consumer prices, and weaken the nation’s global competitiveness with virtually no impact on global temperatures. (72.20%)

3. Demand a Balanced Budget

Begin the Constitutional amendment process to require a balanced budget with a two-thirds majority needed for any tax hike. (69.69%)

4. Enact Fundamental Tax Reform

Adopt a simple and fair single-rate tax system by scrapping the internal revenue code and replacing it with one that is no longer than 4,543 words—the length of the original Constitution. (64.90%)

5. Restore Fiscal Responsibility & Constitutionally Limited Government in Washington

Create a Blue Ribbon taskforce that engages in a complete audit of federal agencies and programs, assessing their Constitutionality, and identifying duplication, waste, ineffectiveness, and agencies and programs better left for the states or local authorities, or ripe for wholesale reform or elimination due to our efforts to restore limited government consistent with the US Constitution’s meaning. (63.37%)

6. End Runaway Government Spending

Impose a statutory cap limiting the annual growth in total federal spending to the sum of the inflation rate plus the percentage of population growth. (56.57%)

7. Defund, Repeal, & Replace Government-run Health Care

Defund, repeal and replace the recently passed government-run health care with a system that actually makes health care and insurance more affordable by enabling a competitive, open, and transparent free-market health care and health insurance system that isn’t restricted by state boundaries. (56.39%)

8. Pass an ‘All-of-the-Above” Energy Policy

Authorize the exploration of proven energy reserves to reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources from unstable countries and reduce regulatory barriers to all other forms of energy creation, lowering prices and creating competition and jobs. (55.51%)

9. Stop the Pork

Place a moratorium on all earmarks until the budget is balanced, and then require a 2/3 majority to pass any earmark. (55.47%)

10. Stop the Tax Hikes

Permanently repeal all tax hikes, including those to the income, capital gains, and death taxes, currently scheduled to begin in 2011. (53.38%)

More than ever Americans need a strong conservative choice offered to them in the voting booth and the Republican Party has abandoned that initiative and the country has suffered greatly. Now, if ever, is the time for a renaissance in the Republican vision.

Ya’ll live long, strong and ornery,

Hateful Abortion Rhetoric Dooms
Buck’s Candidacy as Tea Party Opts
for Historic Losing Third-Party Role
Told you so, told you so, told you so. And now Ken Buck is proving it in spades. Cheer up, Ken, you can always serve as the perfect "RUBE," the quintessential "Radically Ugly Bad Example." Buck who's hijacked the good TEA Party name for the purpose of expressing his old-fashioned ultra-right-wing narrow-mindedness has given the progressive Dems all the ammunition needed to say not only, "Ken Buck, too extreme for Colorado" in their political ads . . . but to use him as the national poster boy for political incompetence. Nice job, idiot!

Oh, how the principled have fallen . . . . Back in early March, 2009, this thing, this entity, this apparently blessed concept of the TEA Party came around and Rajjpuut was jumping in ecstasy. At last, something sensible conservatives could get behind! Something that once understood, the whole universe of logical people in the whole country could love and could use to put the country back on the right track, back in line with the Founding Fathers' noblest dreams -- a true haven for conservative Republicans, Democrats, Independents and Libertarians (like Rajjpuut himself). Then again the TEA (Taxed Enough Already or is it Taken Enough Abuse?) Party came up with this most marvellous of documents the “Contract from America” and 7th Heaven was in view. Since its inception, Rajjpuut at Townhall and later at TEA Party sites has praised the good and great and warned about the utterly depraved potential of the TEA Party. It now appears thanks to “great candidates” like Ken Buck right here in Rajjpuut’s Colorado, that the TEA Party in 2010 is preparing to make the most radical and dangerous progressive Democrats in history and the Communist administration of Barack Obama look desirable to the American people out of sheer unmitigated stupidity. OUCH, OUCH, OUCH, OUCHity, OUCH!
For God sake’s, the mission is "save America" through fiscal conservativism, constitutional conservativism, just plain common sense, and high ideals. The mission is not to become just another losing third party asterick in history, split the conservative vote and doom the country to an Obama "dictatorship" as a result. Let’s look at the latest TEA Party idiot, Ken Buck . . . makes me shiver he’s so wrong. And let’s look at candidate Angle in Nevada, who has resurrected her candidacy but still faces an uphill battle. In an earlier blog, Rajjpuut lambasted Angle . . . .
About six weeks back Sharon Angle became the TEA Party backed candidate against the most hated and evil congressman in America (Pelosi gets the congresswoman honors), Harry Reid. It’s still NOT been settled whether the TEA Party Express who nominated her wasn’t a Harry Reid front aiming to select the worst possible candidate for Republican candidate so that Reid could almost NOT lose, but since that smacks of conspiracy theory and doesn’t help the discussion along, let’s forget that notion for now. Angle made enough mistakes that as soon as she was nominated in the primary she went from an 8% lead over Harry Reid to a 5% underdog. Rajjpuut’s earlier blog documented her amazing ability to “snatch defeat from the jaws of easy victory.” (In fairness to Angle, she's since adopted Rajjpuut's suggestions about 99% and is making a comeback, but what a waste of effort and money and the easy victory possibilities are gone.) And now comes Ken Buck right here in Colorado. If Angle proved stupid right after winning the primary, Buck is proving ultra-stupid and very hateful . . . Buck makes me sick that I’m a TEA Party member.
The TEA Party’s natural role is that of the overseer; as a group with unquestionable integrity standing up for real fiscal conservative and constitutional conservative values rather than becoming just another political party. Let’s review Angle’s and Buck’s shared mistakes before we get to the Ken Buck brilliancies that makes him, and by reflection, the TEA Party look like buffoons, nincompoops and hate mongers . . . . in the earlier blog on Angle’s,_tea_party_express’_stupidity_save_harry_reid’s_butt.thtml
Rajjpuut said that Angle did everything wrong, everything third-partyish that is destined to make Obama and the Democrats praise Allah for the creation of the TEA Party. To wit, the TEA Party getting heavily involved in the nominating process is a losing strategy. We have two parties, both have failed us, the TEA Party’s effective role is as Kingmakers as they proved in the November, 2009, special elections. In the early stages, since it is the Dems that have failed us the most that will about 90% of the time mean that the TEA Party will be benefitting Republican Candidates, but remember this . . . Republican in their own way failed the country more because knowing the wiser path, (fiscal and constitutional conservativism) the G.O.P. joined the Dems to become “Progressive Lite.”
If you’ll remember back to November, 2009, the TEA Party backed^^ the most fiscally and constitutionally conservative candidate in the four races, winning three and narrowly losing the fourth in an almost miraculous battle. That was the height of the TEA Party movement, and except for the Contract from America, it’s been largely downhill## since then.
So now Buck like Angle is more a TEA Party candidate than a G.O.P. one. Successful and honest candidacies require immense amounts of money and a lot of political expertise and experience, successful candidacies also require the candidate to get himself dirty, it’s the nature of the beast. Rather than getting dirty, the preferrred TEA Party role is to sit back and decide which candidate shows 1) fiscal conservativism 2) constitutional conservativism 3) common sense and 4) maintains the most integrity and high ideals in the heat of battle . . . the TEA Party’s natural and preferred WINNING role is, in short, not as a political party but as Kingmakers, WATCHDOGs and as a “party of ideas and ideals.”
Besides basically generating into a loutish third-party-like candidate, Buck like Angle early on has been shooting his mouth off and giving his opponent all the most satisfying sound bite opportunities imaginable. Understand this regardless of ideals, WINNING is a matter of practical politics, it appears that with testosterone added to Angle’s highball, Buck is out to prove himself the stupidest possible candidate. Ken Buck aside, even if your ideas are the noblest and wisest governing ideas -- IF it, however, takes (unfortunately) a lot of effort to explain them -- they are NOT good candidate ideas because it gives the opposition strong sound bites which are easily distorted, why in heaven would a sensible person do such a thing (give his enemy ammunition and load his gun)??? It is, however, highly debatable that Ken Buck’s idea are noble and wise, the man seems to be an utter fool. You want sound bites, you idiot? You have been provided with sound bites . . . the greatest possible sound bites imaginable . . . the ten principles of the Contract from America. Shut your fool jaybird mouth (overloaded by your alligator and jacka_s brain) and speak only from the script (the Contract) and even you might still have a chance. Rajjpuut repeats: regardless of ideals, WINNING is a matter of practical politics.
Again, Rajjpuut will say it clear . . . here’s the virtually failproof strategy for Conservative candidates supported by the TEA Party who’ve already proven themselves politically viable (they won their party’s nomination in the primary without TEA Party money and without TEA Party help) 1. Politics is a strategy game. You win strategy games by pounding away in areas where you have great advantage (Contract from America) and managing your problem areas (your big mouth and the tendency to talk out of turn, or about ‘outside areas’). You make your strengths into the most important issues in the battle. You win strategy games by making your opponents’ weaknesses the most important things about them (alignment with Obama, Pelosi and Reid and their own personal voting record that shows them as far from fiscal and constitutionally conservative) and you ignore your opponents’ strengths altogether. Politics is not about ego when done rightly, but about your ideals connecting with what’s best and smartest in the voters.
Buck, as mentioned, has proven himself an incompetent and flawed politician rather than a man of ideals. Let’s talk about his abortion rant. For almost 40 years, this country has been a country where the high court of the land allowed abortion. The Democrats have succeeded in making it a country where in the average election 56% of the women vote for them because the Republican Party does NOT recognize abortion as the law of the land; and because the Republican Party has chosen to tell people how to live the most intimate areas of their life. Rajjpuut is NOT a pro-abortion or pro-choice per se supporter, but neither does Rajjpuut elect to enter into a woman's brain, spirit and body and tell her how to live her life. Rajjpuut does NOT believe in abortion of demand. She and God will have to figure the proper course out for her. So now, thanks to the right-wing Republican's holier than thou stand, we have made de facto abortion on demand in the country pretty much the going standard. What a wonderful thing we've done because of the Republican's stupid stance. Rajjpuut is a father. You’re telling him that if his little girl is a victim of rape that she can’t decide for herself, talking to God in her own way, what to do next, that she doesn’t have this right? What gives anybody BUT her and God that right?
By squandering their anti-abortion effort on untenable and uncompassionate stances against rape and incest victims and the very young and against women whose very lives were in danger . . . the ultra-right wing (they are not conservatives, they are devilish busy-bodies) of the Republican Party has made the Progressive Democrats by default “virtuous” and desirable to a lot of women, and men. Rajjpuut has said to mention abortion at all is a stupid strategy. What does Ken Buck do? He says, “I’m not only against abortion, I’m against abortion in cases of rape or incest or where the mother’s life is in danger.” Such a fool. Sure like to see him gangraped in an alley and then by a miracle, becoming pregnant . . . . any man who enters the abortion debate is a hideous and utter fool, that’s a matter for women and individual women to deal with between them and God.
The single most important issue is what Buck and Angle didn’t choose to do. Here is the most nearly perfect little document ever created for this moment in history, the Contract from America, and Buck and Angle prefer to talk about abortion (a losing and unnecessary strategy) rather than pounding away at the fiscally and constitutionally conservative planks from the Contract. Now they have given the most depraved progressive congress in the history of America all the soundbites necessary to win and win easily. If I’m the Democratic National Committee what do I do? I run against TEA Party sound bites and nothing else. Featuring 50% Ken Buck, 35% Sharon Angle and 15% Rand** Paul’s unnecessary and foolish sound bite that makes him look like he’s anti-integration. I run on “Republican and TEA Party candidates are racists and dangerous demagogues” and I run on almost nothing else. Thanks Buck, thanks Angle . . . you’ve distorted the noble idea of the TEA Party into just another loony American third party.
What can every thinking principled America agree upon? Fiscal conservativism, Constitutional Conservativism, common sense and high ideals. Help unite people behind these four principles and comparatively without money, you control the political life in this country and save this country from 100+ years of PROGRESSIVE incremental Marxism. What could be more important? What could be more noble? What could be more practical? And why is no one using the Contract from America? Is throwing the Contract and the Declaration and the Constitution down the toilet and flushing them away . . . the logical and high-principled road to victory?
Ya’ll live long, strong and ornery,
## Among other things, it is morally repugnant to win a Republican primary running as a TEA Party candidate and then expect the G.O.P. to finance you because you won the Republican Primary, etc. If TEA Party "candidates" must run, they need to run as Republicans or Democrats period; and run with the TEA Party's Contract from America providing the strategic resources and touchstone but never saying the words "TEA Party" but rather showing with actions and words that the Contract from America lives inside of them. Any other path is disingenuous . . . running as a TEA Party candidate per se is expensive and unnecessary and doesn't serve the country well. Running as a TEA Party Republican means you're stealing their money. The only proper road is to win as a Republican because your ideals shine through; refer to those TEA Party ideals early and often, but run as a Republican (Or Democrat, or conservative, etc., whatever). Because if you take their money like Crist did in Florida, by God you need to represent them unequivocably and to put yourself forward with utter integrity. Crist has proven himself a lowlife and that's exactly what TEA Party Republicans, etc. do if they accept Republican money that way. The TEA Party is a set of ideals to emit from every pore of your body, not a label useful to help win a primary race in someone else's party. ^^ The winning strategy was shown and has been largely ignored since November, 2009. Back the most fiscally and Constutionally conservative candidate presented. In your ads for that candidate, show your principles (now we’ve got the Contract from America). The TEA Party got three victories and three turn-things-around winners. But the real lesson is what happened in the House election we lost. Here’s the situation. The idiot Republican Party gives $1 million in campaign money to a lady who makes Barack Obama look conservative. The Tea Party steps in and the far more conservative Democratic candidate wins easily with the lady Republican withdrawing a week before the election. In fact a very pleasant but “utterly-unshiny and otherwise unpolished” TEA Party candidate running under the banner of the Conservative Party nearly won the election. Why? How? He didn’t shoot off his mouth about losing issues and relatively unimportant issues but stayed tightly-glued to fiscal and Constitutional conservativism.
**Unlike Buck and Angle, Rand Paul is NOT stupid, quite the contrary . . . but his gaffe on the Civil Rights Law was very stupid and unnecessary. It allowed the progressives to paint him and other candidates and the TEA Party as racists. It would behoove, TEA Party candidates running as Republicans to learn from Rand Paul’s candidacy both good and bad. Avoid soundbite material at all costs.

He proved himself a Harry S Truman type candidate and had he another ten days would have won the election.
