Campaigning For Office

Posted by Billy On January - 2 - 2010

It’s amazing that a candidate will spend 100 times more money than what the position he is running for even pays. Look at how much money Mike Bloomberg spent to run for his third (and unconstitutional) term. He spent over 85 million dollars of his own money for a job that pays $200,000 per year. If we want to change the mentality of elected officials, we need to change the laws. Unfortunately, it’s easier said than done. How can you get someone to vote for something that will level their advantage over their competition the next time they run for office. Let’s be for real though… The powers-that-be are not going let that happen because they most likely know that they lose control over the election process. Third party candidates currently don’t stand a chance to run against the Democrats and the Republicans with the laws that are in place.

The current laws in regards to campaign contributions are very screwed up. Look how much money was funneled into President Obama‘s campaign. Unknown contributors and questionable entities made it possible for Obama and his henchmen to carry out one of the greatest campaigns in American history. If Obama is so much for equality for all Americans, then he should lead by example in the next election in 2012.

How that could be done is to eliminate all contributions for all campaigns. The media (newspapers, TV and radio) should be regulated to have equal coverage of each candidate. All candidates should be required to be involve and participate in any and all debates. No more commercials for candidates, instead have each news and talk show have these candidates come on at different points of the election cycle to “pitch” their policies. No one candidate gets more air time or a better time slot than another. As for raising money for running the campaign trail, there is no more campaign trail. If all the candidates are interviewed and participate in debates, there wouldn’t be a need to be on a campaign trail. If all news outlets are required to have these candidates on in equal time, how can the American voter NOT know what they stand for. As for the debates. Have at least two every month through the primary and then step it up to once a week through the general election.

All the repetitive speeches and slandering of the opponent has taken up too much of the campaigning along the trail that it’s not even worth for a voter to go to one of these “campaign rallies”.

No matter at what level of government the candidate is running, it should be done in this type of manner.

I’m So Tired Of All This Obamania

Posted by Joanne On January - 19 - 2009

It’s enough to make me want to vomit actually. I don’t agree with elevating a President to this superstar status.I looked at pictures of people getting ready for the inauguration tomorrow and there were TONS of people selling Obama merchandise…like it’s a rock concert or something. How is anybody supposed to take this man seriously?

I am looking forward to all this hoopla being over and we can FINALLY see what his plans are. Not what he SAYS he wants to do, not what he TALKS about doing, not what he CLAIMS to have done…but what he ACTUALLY does. I, for one, will be watching him closely over the next four years and I hope my gut instinct about him is wrong.

William J. Lynn III Named As Deputy Secretary Of Defense

Posted by Billy On January - 9 - 2009

Barack Hussein Obama has gone ahead and appointed William J. Lynn III to be Deputy Secretary of Defense. A man who has served as under secretary of defense and comptroller in the Clinton Administration as well as the Pentagon’s CFO (chief Financial Officer).

Lynn has the experience to do the job that he was appointed to, but my problem is that William Lynn III is presently the Senior Vice President of Raytheon Co.

Why is that a problem? The problem is that Raytheon has defense contracts with the United States. In my opinion, that makes it a conflict of interests. How can this be allowed that Obama can go ahead and appoint a person who might not hold the American taxpayer’s interest as his main concern.

How can you expect a man to do the right thing with the protection of the American people when he also has responsibilities to the company that he works for to make money? You can’t. He makes his bonuses by the amount of money the company makes. If he has to choose between protecting this country the best way possible or making his multi-million dollar bonus, how can you expect him to put himself second?

If he wants to take the position of Deputy Secretary of Defense, he must resign from his position at Raytheon Co. He is human and is bound to make mistakes, but to avoid a defense issue he must do the right thing first, which is to leave Raytheon and all his responsibilities to the company

Another kick in the pants is that the Democrats had a problem with Dick Cheney getting elected to office while he still had interests in Halliburton, but have not problem of William J. Lynn III being given the position. The American people didn’t get the right to vote for this man to be put into this office. I know that it’s two different position, but isn’t the President’s job to serve this country? Or is it his duty to go ahead and give positions to people who helped get him into office?

Just as a side note, Goldman Sachs has upgraded the the stock of Raytheon to a buy from a hold. What does that tell you?

I don’t know what’s to come of this, but I will say that I will be keeping an eye on it and posting about here on this blog.

More Violence From Obama Supporters

Posted by Joanne On November - 16 - 2008

Sadly, this is becoming more and more common.

From American Thinker:

After taunting 18-year old freshman Annie Grossmann for wearing her McCain-Palin campaign button at an election night get-together, and “getting in her face,” four women beat her for political views which, obviously, they did not share. Grossmann took verbal abuse at the party, then left for her dorm after it was clear, about 10 p.m., that her candidates had lost. She was followed by the four women into the shadows of a nearby skyway.

There she was beaten. The four women, all black, called Grossmann a “racist.” She knew none of them. Nor did they know her, to her knowledge. It was that damn campaign button that evidently caused their frenzy. Their earlier taunts proved that. They were, Grossmann said, “rubbing her face in Obama‘s win.”

“Why do you call me a racist when you don’t even know me?” she screamed. Made no difference. Grossmann was felled by the largest of the four. She hit her head on the brick wall, and staggered back to her dorm. The other three black women at the beating chucked at this dark manifestation of partisan evil. They walked away laughing, offering no help to their victim. The banality of evil had asserted itself. And at four-to-one, it was also a cowardly act of mindless violence which, presumably, the four thought “normal.”

I guess their just following their orders from King Obama when he told his supporters to get in their face and argue with them.
