Our choice: Sit in the back of the bus or take back the keys

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The day of reckoning is upon us. It's our choice — maybe a last chance. We either put up or shut up. If we can't take the House, the country is screwed. America can only take so much debt, high taxes, country-imploding entitlements and lost jobs.

Maybe I should specify whom I mean by "we."

I'm referring to those of us who are seeking leaders who can be trusted to overturn the atrocities legislated against the will of the people by Democrats these last 19 months. Right now, it's difficult to know who the Democrat candidates are since they are harder to ID than a conservative in the main stream media. Obviously the Dem candidate behavior is clear message to everyone: "We are ashamed of the last 19 months!"

The issues are clear. The time is November 2nd. The place is the voting booth. If we win, we get to start to repair our Republic.

Let no one intimidate your vote. Let no one block the voting booth. Let no one stop you from your G-d given right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

BTW, here's hoping that many Dems have enough courage to swallow their pride and cross-over to the Republicans in the still private voting booth.

I hear the History Channel was canceled - too many repeats

At the risk of repeating a few fundamentals, please remember, this ain't the 30's and 40's. Socialism is no longer a viable way to govern:

  • Government takeovers, Universal HC, eugenics, euthanasia, fascism, genocide, central planning and the ensuing forced starvations prove Socialism didn't work.

  • Pending failures include the rioting France , Greece , UK and a Germany who's scrambling to lower taxes and increase business expansion show Socialism didn't work.

  • Our dive in the 30's into a deep Socialistic hole made a simple recession into a 12-year depression under FDR. Socialism didn't work.

  • We know, for example, that universal HC does not work. Obama's model for HC, the UK , is disbanding its plan while firing up to 500,000 government employees. One can only hope some who are canned include those who work in the euthanasia department. According to top doctors in Canada , their universal HC plan is imploding. Socialist HC plans didn't work.

Americans with any sense are very scared by this.

The WH answer to an anticipated disastrous election? ROAD TRIP!

Blacks and Latinos should take special note that, at the same time Bill Clinton was promoting Kendrick Meek for senator in Florida, he and "independent" former Republican, a candidate for the same office, Charlie Crist were cajoling Meek to drop out. The purpose was to clear the path for a white turncoat to beat the Latino. This was being done at the behest of the Barack Obama WH.

Also, President Obama "suggested" that Illinois Senator Burris, NY. Governor Patterson and Representative Rangel (all blacks) either resign or not run again. Seems to be a pattern here, don't ya think, NAACP? Can you imagine the outrage if Barack Obama was a Republican?

Speculation is that blacks and Latinos may stay home or, Mao forbid, vote Republican despite the urgings of the first African American President. Remember, the policies of the Obama Administration have had a worse effect on blacks and legal Hispanics than anyone else in the country.

I hear the President and 850 of his closest friends are going to India a few days after the election. The Taj Mahal and several other Mumbai hotels are booked. Forty planes, solar-paneled, oiled and greased are revving and 120 unused New Orleans school busses (remember Katrina?) are armored and being shipped to India. The original order was raised from 60 because no one would sit in the back of the bus.

This could be wishful thinking; we get out the vote the way we ought to and maybe they won't come back.
