Is Greece Our Future? Obama Voters: Buyer’s Remorse

Watching the riots in economically gasping Greece is like rubbing the dust off a crystal ball and seeing our future.

May 6, 2010


If we don’t change course – halt/reverse Obama’s egregious policies, America will be forever changed. We have two chances to hoist the USA back from the socialist abyss – 2010 and 2012.

Good news… Additional help may be on its way. Repentant Obama voters are expanding their ranks. Seems the magic spell of ‘hope and change’ wasn’t what they wished for after all. I Am Sorry I Voted For Obama is a website that solicits stories from former Obama supporters who are no longer proud of their decision. We heartily invite disaffected Obama voters to join our cause! Every liberty-loving American is needed! Roll up your sleeves and help us win congressional seats this fall and two years hence.

I thought I was voting for someone from outside the old school political machine…. well I guess I got a whole new steam roller…. that rolled right over the Constitution.

America…. I am so sorry.

We have some very bright friends who didn’t really LISTEN to what Obama was saying during the campaign and who didn’t think his past associations made any difference. They were caught up in the American Idol nature of the whole thing and the desire to “Make History” Just like the media, they failed to ask “what do you mean by “transforming the United States?” They failed to ask what he meant by “redistribution of wealth.” They failed to ask about his mentors. They failed to ask about anything….they were just in love. Now reality has hit…the bumper stickers are gone from their cars, they refuse to discuss political issues, preferring to change the subject. Are they sorry? You betcha!

He is tearing this Country apart. His lack of experience is far greater than one expected, along with no leadership skills.

I am a member of an interracial family. With that being said, I really don’t care what your skin color is, you fall into three categories in my life – good, bad, and questionable. The only factor that determines this are ethics and morality. My father-in-law, who I am very close with, voted for Obama; mainly because he was black. Many people did in the name of “ending racism”. Isn’t that terribly ironic and hypocritical? At any rate, Pops told me the other day after we were discussing and agreeing on our very conservative, yet independent, values, that he regrets deeply voting for Obama. The man that spoke so eloquently about change, transparency, fairness, and equality has shown us just the opposite. And to think, I almost believed it too. McCain got my vote. And I will be putting very good money on, my entire family voting against him this year.

I did not vote for him, but my best friends’ son was brain washed at college and now he says he is sorry he wasted his vote on him.

Independent from Baltimore, MD 2010-03-26
I voted for Obama and regret that decision everyday. I now come to realize that my daughter and her children will be paying most of their income in taxes. I realize that he is taking away our freedoms. The health bill is horrible. We will be taxed to death to pay for it and will have inferior health care. I wish I could take my vote back.

Oliver from Glendale, Arizona 2010-03-25
I’m sorry I voted for Obama. I wanted hope and change. Well I’ve been seeing a lot of change, all of it for the worse. What I’m hoping for now is that the change will stop.

Pete from Orlando, FL 2010-03-25
Despite our collective dismay at the recent turn of events, there are a few good things that we can learn: 1. People are getting re-acquainted with our Constitution and the principle on which this country were founded. And they are discovering that we ARE unique in this world. To implement European style legislation would make us exactly like that from which we fled over 200 years ago. We are special and don’t let anyone tell you differently.2. DO YOUR RESEARCH! The information was out there during the campaign but the majority of Americans wouldn’t put any stock in it. Some of us knew from which Pres. ZERO came from. He surrounded himself with and was influenced by socialists his entire life. He was taught to hate this country from an early age. It’s true that you are who you associate with. Please – in the future let’s all do our homework diligently and not get our info from SNL and Jon Stewart.

I didn’t vote for him, wife and several friends did and they are so embarrassed they won’t even talk about it. How sad is it?

Erin from Anywhere, North Carolina 2010-03-21
As a college student, I got caught up in the hope and change message that Obama was feeding to others my age. I knew our country needed change, but I was so swept up in the novelty of Obama that I failed to look at the issues. Now that I have transitioned into the “real world,” I have to take care of myself and have realized that while I like to help others, I am not for the forced “spreading of the wealth” that Obama is shoving down our throat. Watching our Constitution get flushed down the toilet is devastating.

Anonymous from Cleveland, Ohio 2010-01-29
I am very sorry I voted for Obama. It was my first Presidential Election that I was able to vote in…I think I got caught up in the Obama Hoopla on campus of the college I go to…I have learned to do my own research for future elections and listen to my parents!

Scott Wynn from Festus, Missouri 2010-01-24
In my opinion it was the far left media propaganda that swept Obama into office. His victory has encouraged the anti-American left to shove their socialist agendas down the throat of Americans. This is what I regret the most about voting for him. America is in having a huge economic crisis and the only help that this administration can offer is to blame the previous administration, while they work to propagate their leftist agenda instead of refocusing their attention to what really matters right now, and that is the economy. America, let’s hope we can turn this around soon and not be fooled by the far left again in the future.

Jared from Lemont, Illinois 2010-01-08
I was completely convinced real change was coming. Obama promised ‘No Lobbyist’ but his administration has hired more lobbyist than any President before him. Obama has literally sold Washington. I guess the more things “change” the more they stay the same.

Chris from Feeding Hills, Massachusetts 2010-01-01
I must admit (rather sheepishly) that I was sucked into the Obama hype…one of the most regretful decisions I’ve ever made. Should have totally seen this coming…especially from a Democrat. Spending $$ we don’t have, setting my kid’s generation up for disaster…I should’ve known better. I AM SORRY!! :-(

Cinco de Mayo…A Reminder to Celebrate Legal Immigration

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

 

Just as many Americans observe St. Patrick’s Day, Oktoberfest, and the Chinese New Year, which highlights the contributions of Irish, German, and Chinese immigrants, we join many communities in the USA today who are observing the Mexican holiday known as Cinco de Mayo (5th of May). It’s a holiday perhaps more celebrated in America than in Mexico and is enjoyed by many, regardless of ethnic origin. Honoring the traditions and many significant contributions of Americans of Mexican ancestry while enjoying Cinco de Mayo serves as a reminder to celebrate the enrichment of legal immigration.

What is Cinco de Mayo?
Cinco de Mayo officially commemorates the anniversary of an early victory by Mexican forces over French forces in the Battle of Pubela on May 5, 1862. It is not the anniversary of the defeat and expulsion of the French forces by the Mexicans, which occurred in 1867. It is also not, as is often assumed, the day of Mexico’s celebrations of independence, which are actually held on September 16. It is believed that the origins of Cinco de Mayo celebrations lie in the responses of Mexicans living in California in the 1860s to French rule in Mexico at that time.

In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American.[...]We have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.
-Theodore Roosevelt

The making of an American begins at the point where he himself rejects all other ties, any other history, and himself adopts the vesture of his adopted land.
-James Baldwin

The American people are not anti-immigrant. We are concerned about the lack of coherence in our immigration policy and enforcement. – Chris Cannon

We are a nation of laws. We’re going to enforce the laws. We’re not going to cut off immigration; we’re going to keep immigration alive and thriving. But we’re going to end the practice of illegal immigration.[...]We’re going to end illegal immigration to protect legal immigration.” -Mitt Romney 12/9/07 Miami, FL Republican debate

Let’s don a sombrero and celebrate the traditions and contributions that our neighbors to the south have brought to America. Try rolling up some tamales today, dancing to mariachi music, or taking a few swings at a piñata!

Viva la legal immigration!

What Makes America Great? Mitt Romney’s ‘No Apology’ Book Tour Nears End


We couldn’t wait for it to begin.

We’re loving it while it lasts.

The end is near…

Solution seekers for America’s sorry state of affairs are elatedly standing in long lines. Why? For the chance to be inspired by in-depth author, former Governor Mitt Romney. Busily touring our nation, Romney is sharing the contents of his cogent new book No Apology: The Case for American Greatness.

Romney rousingly delivers.

With just three book signing dates left – two in Nevada and one in Colorado, fans will be disappointed when his book tour officially ends May 27th. Not reflected on the tour map, Romney will also deliver the Annual Reagan Lecture at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA and will sign books (May 25th). See Nate’s article here or click here for additional details.

—————————————-

Enthusiastic No Apology tour attendees were asked to share their thoughts on what makes America great. What do you think makes America great?

Here is what a few fellow Americans had to say (accompanying quotes from No Apology):

Phoenix, AZ

(P. 34) It is time for America to pursue the difficult course ahead, to confront the looming problems, to strengthen the foundations of our prosperity, and to secure the sources of our liberty and safety. The sacrifice and hard work will not sap our national energy; they will restore it. I’m one of those who believe America is destined to remain as it has been since the birth of the Republic – the brightest hope of the world. And for that belief, I do not apologize.

Framingham, MA

(P. 126) Fortunately for all of us, innovation and entrepreneurism are deeply embedded in the American DNA. But more often than not, it also takes capital for an idea to be implemented. Where capital is scarce, hard to find, or not available to entrepreneurs and innovators, good ideas simply die in the mind.

[…]Most fundamental, government manages the currency and the financial system. If people don’t have confidence in the future value of the currency they may not be inclined to invest because they can’t be sure what value their money will have when they get it back – their return from their investment.

(P. 148,149) To strengthen America’s economy, we must minimize those things that retard economic growth and promote those things that accelerate it. A growth agenda favors low taxes, dynamic regulation, educational achievement, investment in research, robust competition, free trade, energy security, and purposeful immigration. And it seeks to eliminate government waste, excessive litigation, unsustainable entitlement liabilities, runaway health-care costs, and dependence on foreign oil. This, in a nutshell, ought to be the economic agenda for America.

LaJolla, CA

(P. 19, 20) There are four strategies for world leadership that are in competition today. Only one is founded on freedom. Only one. Think of what that means. Only if America and the West succeed – if our economic and military strength endure – can we be confident that our children and grandchildren will be free. A strong America is good for peace, and it is essential for the spread of freedom. Our superpower status and our leadership in the world, however, are not inevitable. Three other global strategies, each pursued by at least one state or major actor, are aggressively being pursued to surpass us and, in some cases, to suppress us. The proponents of each are convinced they will succeed. And world history offers us no encouragement: Every superpower in history has eventually weakened and fallen behind – many have ultimately collapsed. Given what is at risk, I have come to believe that our primary objective as a nation must be to keep America strong. I am convinced that every policy, every political initiative, every new law or regulation should be evaluated in large measure by whether it makes us stronger or weaker. Our freedom, security, and prosperity are at stake.

Framingham, MA

(P. 100) …We face enormous challenges at home, and I anticipate a growing outcry to reduce or cap our security spending. Some will support their argument by comparing defense budgets with those of other nations, but when they are properly calculated, the figures simply do not support cutting back. Others will insist that dialogue and diplomacy can free the world of grave threats, but history proves otherwise, and an honest threat assessment augurs for the opposite outcome: Iran and its jihadist colleagues present a real and serious danger; Russia is retooling and rearming its military and paying the bill with its massive energy resources; China’s military expansion is the largest peacetime ramp-up since prewar Germany’s; and the proliferation of nuclear weapons and disruptive technologies is expanding, not shrinking.

While our diplomacy and leadership can influence the world, we cannot control the world. What we can control is the size and sophistication of our military power and its deterrent effect, which in turn determines whether we remain free, safe, and prosperous.

Salt Lake City, UT

(P. 271) At the core of our system of government is an informed, involved, and responsible citizenry. The real peril to the nation if its citizenry fails to meet its duties was recognized by the Founders. John Adams was fearful of pure democracy, in which citizens could direct the affairs of the nation without the participation of office-holders who were elected to promote the public’s best interests. In his 1814 letter to John Taylor of Virginia, thirteen years after he left the presidency, Adams wrote:

“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide….When clear prospects are opened before vanity, pride, avarice, or ambition, for their easy gratification, it is hard for the most considerate philosophers and the most conscientious moralists to resist the temptation. Individuals have conquered themselves. Nations and large bodies of men, never.”

Phoenix, AZ

P. 273: Soon after I became governor, I realized that a politician who seeks popularity and high approval ratings can achieve them by slavishly agreeing with public opinion and by actually doing very little. In my case, politics was a departure from my career, not a continuation of it. My reading of history had given me a profound appreciation for the sacrifices made by the Founders. I felt then as I do now that it is an enormous challenge to live up to their example. That challenge is also a useful guide for conduct in office, particularly as a defense against the temptation to take the easy, popular path when short-term political advantage may be gained by doing so. I have tried always to be more interested in making a difference than in making a hit in the polls.

P. 273: It’s important that Americans retain their interest and involvement with the electoral process. For the Republic to function as it must, I believe voters must continually renew their understandings of the critical role they play, take the time to learn about pressing issues, and judge candidates based on their character, intelligence, relevant experience, and positions on issues.

As hungry-for-truth Americans readily connect with Romney’s focus for revitalizing the foundation of American strength, we reluctantly acknowledge Romney’s book tour will soon be a memory. However, we also know it will free him to continue championing conservative candidates for the critical mid-term elections this fall.

Governor Romney, bravo! Thank you for writing a bold book; a book worth buying – a book worth reading. Thank you for your backbone, brains, and bravery.

America, we need this man in the White House.
