Fool Me Once, Shame On You! Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me!

As I write this, Mitt Romney has conceded the election to Barack Hussein Obama. I actually thought Mitt Romney might have been the optimal candidate for our time. We were interviewing for the CEO (Chief Executive) of the United States. Romney has been a very successful executive in both public and private capacity. If anyone had the know-how to turn the economy around, it was Romney. And what he lacked in reverence for the founding principles, he more than made up for by nominating Paul Ryan for VP. Ryan is a great numbers guy too. They would have made a fantastic team. Sure, Ronald Reagan was possibly more personable, and had better instincts for the founding principles, but I think one could argue that Romney's and Ryan's talents might have been more pertinent to our present situation. I think it's a horrible loss to America that they weren't elected. Given that, and how astonishingly bad Barack Obama is, it is nothing less than disgraceful that those two didn't win by the biggest landslide in history.

For the last four years, I half believed the sign,

It is now abundantly clear that it wasn't a mistake, it was a deliberate self-inflicted bullet to the head.

Pundits kept saying that people bought the empty "hope and change" rhetoric, and giving him the benefit of the doubt, painted Barack Obama with their own hopes and aspirations. But now that they know who he really is, they'll reject him.

Well first of all, you would have to be willfully ignorant not to have known what Barack Obama was all about back in 2008. He wrote not one, but two "autobiographies" (most likely ghost written by none other than William Ayers), in which he described in agonizing detail exactly who he is. He hung out with the most radical racists, haters and criminals imaginable, not to mention profligate pot head slackers. You show me who your friends are, and I'll show you who you are, Barry.

But now that everyone knows who this Manchurian candidate is, we re-elected him anyway. The left excoriated Mitt Romney for saying that 47% of the citizenry were lost to him. It turns out, it is more like 51%. We now have more takers in this country than we have producers, and that is not sustainable. Can you say, "death spiral"? I knew you could...

Barack Obama is openly hostile to The Constitution, which will be nothing more than a formality in four more years (because after the election, he'll have "more flexibility"). Our Constitution can't uphold and defend itself. The fact that a majority of Americans would re-elect such a man tells me that more than half of us have no idea what it takes either.

Acting more imperial than presidential, Obama has already systematically rendered congress irrelevant, issuing rapid fire executive orders, and side-stepping every check and balance that stood in his way. The idea that more than 50% of the voters would make this man even less accountable to the people by awarding him a second term, is astounding. In four more years, this nation will be irreparably separated from the founding principles that made this the freest nation on earth.

The national debt and deficit will continue to rise, unchecked. Obama will appoint several more Supreme Court Justices (does "Justice Eric Holder" have a nice ring to it?), and of course the biggest assault on our economic and personal freedom -- ObamaCare -- will become writ in stone. We now have no chance to repeal it. And that just scratches the surface: we will get more of the same criminally negligent, if not malevolent policy such as the Fast and Furious gun running scandal, and of course, who could forget the murdered Americans in Benghazi? Their families sure won't.

Emperor Obama will continue to divide the nation by race and by class. At a campaign rally, he recently told his disciples that "voting is the best revenge". Revenge for what? Against whom? Against the people that made this nation the best hope for rags-to-riches on the planet? Against the people who made this nation the beacon for your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free? Those guys?

Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Franklin, you had a good run. It was nice knowing you, but don't let the screen door hit you in the ass on the way out.


  1. Karl,
    We have entered the twilight zone from hell sir.
    May God help us all, amen.
    Bigeagle out.

  2. Good article Karl - I think we all have angry thoughts that need to be aired out for our own mental health' sake. I had no contingency plan for defeat tonight. I too am greatly angered by the amount of stupid uninformed mad hatters who by their vote bestow upon the rest of us their contrary and harmful edicts. The task of changing the mass ignorant mindset of Western Washingon voters is almost too overwhelming -at a time when we have such a an apology for a president and yet some excellent candidates seeking office, all of them would have served us better . Thank goodness Jason and Vincent were re elected, we are grateful them in no small measure..

  3. It is a shame the republicans forced Romney through the party system. There really was no conservative choice in this election consider the following quote from Chuck Baldwin (with whom I seem to agree on most topics) regarding the two top presidential candidates.

    "They both supported TARP; they both supported Obama’s economic stimulus package; they both supported so-called assault weapons bans and other gun control measures; Obama has an “F” rating from Gun Owners of America, while Romney has a “D-” rating from GOA; neither man supports a balanced budget; neither man opposes foreign aid; they both supported the bailout of the auto industry; they both have a track record of being big spenders; they both fully support the Federal Reserve; they both oppose a full audit of the Fed; they are both supporters of universal health care; both men are showered with campaign contributions from Wall Street; neither of them wants to eliminate the IRS or the direct income tax; both men are on record as saying the TSA is doing a “great job”; they both supported the NDAA, including the indefinite detention of American citizens without due process of law; they both supported the renewal of the Patriot Act; they both believe that the President has “executive power” to assassinate and kill; both support the “free trade” agenda of the global elite; they are both soft on illegal immigration; they both support NAFTA and CAFTA; they both have a history of appointing liberal judges; they both believe the President has the authority to take the nation to war without the approval of Congress; and neither of them has any qualms about running up more public debt to the already gargantuan debt of 16 trillion dollars."
    -Chuck Baldwin

    Judge Andrew Napolitano nailed it when he said, “Barack Obama loves Big Labor; Mitt Romney loves Big Business; but they both love Big Government.”

    Because the republicans turned their back on Ron Paul the only small government i.e. "cost correcting" and constitutionally centered candidate was deliberately shut out. Make the choices within a couple percentage points of being the same and you get a close race between two statists with all of us as the losers.

  4. Note: I toned down some of my rhetoric after having the night to sleep on it. Yes, this is the "toned down" version.

  5. I have been this way before. Midway through the Carter years, we concluded that civilization as we knew it in America was on the verge of collapse. We moved from metropolitan Miami, to the 16th Century walled city of St. Augustine, took jobs in that city's restoration area where I cooked meals daily over an open fire, learned to use a wood stove built of cement, deal with chicken poop on the window sill, split wood, and wash clothes in a hollowed out chunk of log called a lavadora. My husband learned how to hollow out a chunk of log for a lavadora, carve useful objects from wood, pour pewter utensils, and a score of other antique skills; we went on to work in a medieval village adding spinning, weaving and enameling to our stock of skills. But civilization didn't collapse and we came out ill-equipped for the rapidly approaching 21st Century. And now, just when we have finally and totally adapted to life in the computer age, we face the collapse of our civilization once again. And we don't even have a wood stove.

  6. Before I hit the hay here I must say this:
    I thank the commentors above for commenting, please follow this blog and keep it up.
    This is my favorite blog of them all.
    Karl is as good as it gets and I thank him for staying alive and in this big game for all the marbles.
    We have many decades of the drug of stupification VS. uncommon sense to fight against.
    If we do not fight back to regain the best place for mankind to be free to be all we can be, we will ultimately all recieve the worst that never sleeps to tell us that we must be handcuffed because we are a bunch of evil bastards who want to take care of ourselves instead of locking our lips on the nipple of social control.

    We believe in the ability of the individual. Our opponents are human kind racists who believe none of us are capable of rowing our own boat of life anywhere fast. They tell us we are stupid, all of us, and we need to be taken care of and told what to do, what to believe, how to live, and that only they can provide the path to what they approve of as an approved existance.
    They want us to smile a forced smile. I prefer to tell them I have one life to live and it is mine not theirs to direct. Going forward they have tried to tell me I am the problem.
    Going forward I will give them what they deserve, my middle finger of respect.
    They asked for it, and they will get it now.
