Started writing this last night... finished it off after Mitt's speech.

Feeling very inspired tonight.  Not going to heed the manic voices of fear and anger, even as they ramp up in a relentless cacophony with the approach of election day.

My favorite part of Ryan's speech at the RNC tonight...

"We believe that in every life there is goodness; for every person, there is hope.  Each one of us was made for a reason, bearing the image and likeness of the Lord of Life.  

We have responsibilities, one to another – we do not each face the world alone.  And the greatest of all responsibilities, is that of the strong to protect the weak.  The truest measure of any society is how it treats those who cannot defend or care for themselves. 

Each of these great moral ideas is essential to democratic government – to the rule of law, to life in a humane and decent society.  They are the moral creed of our country, as powerful in our time, as on the day of America’s founding.  They are self-evident and unchanging, and sometimes, even presidents need reminding, that our rights come from nature and God, not from government. "

A powerful, powerful - tour de force of words from an intellectual superstar that has been long overdue the Republican circles.  I pray that Ryan's compelling treatise will make a dent in the psyche of the undecideds.  I know the choir on the left could care less and will likely lash out at his words in the form of personal attacks, rather than addressing the issues he raises.

I also loved this quote...

"College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life.”

The perfect answer for the "Julia-ization" wrought by the Obama administration.  A cradle to grave blanket of entitlement that in reality will stifle and suffocate the sovereignty of the individual while sapping the capital of the American public at large.

I was also blown away by this woman.  

Enthralling and awe inspiring.  And no teleprompter.  

This remarkable lady is one of my heroes, and here she speaks to everything that is wrong with the left's hateful war of fear and anger against the right.

"And on a personal note, a little girl grows up in Jim Crow Birmingham.  The segregated city of the south where her parents cannot take her to a movie theater or to restaurants, but they have convinced that even if she cannot have it hamburger at Woolworths, she can be the president of the United States if she wanted to be, and she becomes the secretary of state."

She is, in fact, a liberal's worst nightmare.  A thinking person of color, who was been confronted with the deepest and worst elements actual racism and has gone on to fully embrace the American dream - and in doing so has risen to one of the most powerful positions of leadership in the world.

Because she knows one inescapable fact...

"The essence of America, what really unites us, is not nationality or ethnicity or religion.  It is an idea. And what an idea it is.  That you can come from humble circumstances and you can do great things, that it does not matter where you came from, it matters where you are going.

My fellow Americans, ours has never been a narrative of grievance and entitlement.  We have never believed that I am doing poorly because you are doing well.  We have never been jealous of one another and never envious of each others' successes."

The attacks from left touting the "War against women" disgust me on so many levels, it's hard to  stay focused and articulate precisely what is wrong with them.  But to hear them, and then to hear Condi... there isn't much I need to say at all, really.

But I will anyway.  :)

Facebook has lately been a relentless slew of vitriolic articles from my friends, desperately trying to link first class Republican jackass, senate candidate Todd Akin, with the current GOP presidential candidate and his running mate.

This guy is a dumb shit and has been disavowed up and down by his own party, including most vociferously by Mitt Romney, who urged him to withdraw his candidacy immediately.

But he's just like Paul Ryan, according to the hearing and reading comprehension impaired democrats.


Saying you believe all unborn babies, including those conceived by rape or incest, are innocent is NOT the same as saying a woman's body will reject conception if she is "legitimately" raped. 

The former, whether you agree or not, is a legitimate point of view that is rooted in compassion for the unborn.  The latter is just sheer idiocy.

The first belief, has also been the GOP's party platform for 50 years.  The dems are uncovering nothing new here.  

The fact also is plain that a president cannot "make abortion illegal" as the shrill and infantile liberal super pac ads proclaim.

Romney and Ryan have both said flatly that regardless of their personal beliefs, they will respect how the courts rule on this matter.  It doesn't mean that they won't look to appoint conservative justices to the court, but men and women of the SCOTUS have a pesky habit of thinking for themselves.  G.W. Bush appointed two "conservatives", Souter and Roberts - and we all know how that worked out.

The main reason for the democrat's stubborn insistence on stupidly trying to link these entirely unrelated points of view is very simple.  

They lose if they talk about what Americans are most concerned about.  The economy and jobs.

They lose.


I am, at this point, so over the outrage and the bile, the refusal from the passionate voices on the left, to take their feet off the gas pedal of anger.  They are ignorant, they are childish, and they are tiresome.

But after these last few nights, I'm starting to feel a flicker of inspiration about Romney and Ryan.

After a parade of minority and female speakers at the RNC, most of which were omitted by MSNBC in their coverage - it has become more clear than ever to me, that the democrats aren't merely misguided in their accusations of racism and misogyny.   

They're fucking stupid.

They are so far off the mark it's not even funny.  And the loathing, the personal attacks that will surely escalate through the next two months, will only get more and more pathetic.  

It's sad, really.

Eschew the issues and make with the smears.  The rage.  The indignation.  The resentment.

All of these raw (and primitive) emotions are fueled, I know, by bewilderment at the conservative mindset which is typically happy and content.  Because we know we are right.  Not perfect, but most assuredly pretty much on the side of truth.

There is very little ambiguity in our morals, our choices, our view of the world at large.

America is exceptional.  Not a big deal, that's just the way it is.  We get that way because we put our trust in God, and charge our government with the duty protect us and insure our liberty.

In turn, our military keeps us free.  Yep.  Without them, the dogs of war would come for us and our throats would be slit in the night - quickly.  No great revelation there, just a fundamental truism.

God.  Family.  Country.  In that order.  Clear as crystal.

Meanwhile, adrift in a sea of moral relativism and ambiguity, liberals bang on their drums and play in the mud, smoke their weed and spew fury at us happy warriors.

Good luck with that y'all.  Just remember that the vast majority of Americans don't play that shit.  Some may buy into the rainbows and unicorns for awhile, but four long years later - there are many now who are coming out of the fog and recognizing that the next four years under Obama are very likely to get even worse.

And that, I have to say, is not a bad thing at all.  I predicted awhile back, that Barry would take this election pretty handily - but thanks to the never ending childish tantrums of his campaign, I think I was wrong.

This one is going to right down to the wire.
