The Aftermath

On Tuesday, November 4th, 2008, Barack Hussein Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States. Although it pains me to say that, considering I was personally backing John McCain for the Presidency. A few days back, I outlined my reasons for backing him in a post entitled, "My Official Selection For President". I feel exactly the same as I did when I wrote that. I don't see Barack possessing what we need at this point in our nations history. I find his economic policies sadly very socialist. I have nothing against the fact that Barack is black. While there are people in this country that feel that a black man can/will not successfully lead this country, I am not one of them. My dislike of the outcome of this election is based entirely on his policies. I would feel the same way if a green man with the same policies had been elected in his place.

That said, I give him the fairest of chances. I don't think he'll be able to find half the money to do a third of the things he plans on doing. You read that right. He won't be able to afford near the government programs he thinks he will I imagine. The country is in an economic crapstorm, so to speak. We're trillions of dollars in debt to other nations, and we've no plan to pay it off. And the "plan" to fix the economy, can only be paid for in two ways. Either you stop spending, (a foreign concept to liberals) or you "create" more money. Unfortunately, our government leans toward the latter of those two, and its come to bite us in the rear.

Let's all as a country follow along and see what "change" Mr. Obama has in store for us and how his policies effect the nation. Frankly, I'm excited to see what the next four years has to offer.

The Best Commercial

You'd better watch this... and send it to all your friends...

I'm a hateful Warmonger

According to a report on Wednesday by Democratic staffers for two key panels in the U.S. House of Representatives, President Bush will seek a $100 billion more to go toward the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. "The administration is expected to submit an additional request early next year that will total roughly $100 billion. At least three-quarters of this request will support operations in Iraq," according to the report.

If the White House asks for the $100 billion, it would be significantly less than the $130 billion the Pentagon preliminarily requested recently, according to several accounts. According to democrats who use everything to a political advantage, this is a useless spending on an already high-priced war. However, one must look at the advantages to the spending and the war. One must constantly look at what the state of the world would be like if the war had never even taken place. What if a pacifist had been President? What if the appeasement road had been taken after September 11th? The thought is staggering.

True, the war has cost the US and it’s allies, time, money, and most importantly lives. But hasn’t it been worth it? Removing a brutal dictator who it seemed had a passion for death and destruction seems like a worthy goal to me. But no. I’m a hateful warmonger.

The Election

I suppose it's time for my dissection of the elections on the 7th. Here it is. :)

The GOP's loss of power in the House and Senate serves as a rude wake-up-call to conservatives about the party they once put faith in. I have no doubt that the majority of American's are conservative; fiscally and ethically. Why then; might one ask, did conservatives lose power this past election? They didn't. Republicans, I'm quick to remind you, aren't always conservatives. Exhibit A. America, and particularly Conservative America had no choice this past tuesday. The people they once trusted to hold conservative views, both fiscally and ethically let them down. One of the biggest issues was National Security. Republican's, when in control, took forever to do anything about the immigration problem. They also, for all I can see; seem to have forgotten their empty pledges about protection for the unborn, particularly regarding abortion and stem cell research. That is why America made a different choice. Lack of new-comer's, read: CONSERVATIVES, on November's ballot resulted in a change. A change for the worse mind you, but a change nontheless. And, now that the change has been made, America sits idly by and waits for the newly elected to take their position seriously and make changes.

We'll see what happens.

Foley Update

Foley says he did what he did because he was raped by a member of the clergy. Whatever. When will we see our actions as our own responsibility?

Story: U.N. warns North Korea against nuclear weapon test

North Korea
Like a Communist would listen. People just don't seem to get it. Reagan got it. He knew that the only way Gorbachev'd listen was to talk tough. You don't negotiate with a terrorist. It's like a volcano. If I had a volcano in my living room, I would try and co-habitate. I wouldn't try and pacify it with sacntions. No. The answer would be two-fold. Either the volcano must cease being a volcano, or I must eliminate the volcano. In the case of Communism. The latter is probably the best option. When will the world smarten up and talk tough to a terrorist? I grow anxious during the wait.
