So, how many days until the next election?

Because Public Schools Create Social Genuises…

November 13, 2008

Social Outcasts.

Oh yeah, my kids are gonna be homeschooled.

Nothing Obama can do about that.

Now back to my “abstaining” from the news.  It is a lot harder than it looks.

The Death Penalty

November 11, 2008

As a former young Republican (not the club, but literally speaking), I used to support the death penalty.  Over time, I have had my doubts about the value of the death penalty.  My reasoning was that it may prevent some people from going over the top and committing a serious crime knowing that they may get a lethal injection as a result.  I think my analysis was wrong.

As a pro-lifer, I value life.  Be that a newborn baby, or a crook.  God sees value and potential in everyone, and who am I to decide whether or not someone should have their life terminated because they murdered someone?  The problem with the death penalty is that it relies on human instinct and knowledge.  There have been at least a handful of people who suffered the fate of the death penalty, only after they were killed did it come out that they were, in fact, innocent.

Maybe as a person with a more conservative stance, this seems odd.  Actually, for a conservative, it shouldn’t be.  Because of the amount of time spent on death row, it actually costs the state more than it would were we to place them in the normal prison population.

On the other hand, if I am in a situation where I need to protect my family, I will not hesitate to do so.  If that means the perp gets killed, then so be it.  There’s a huge difference between protecting my family and the government deciding whether or not someone is worthy enough to live.

Assisted suicide is another issue.  Sorry, I value life, and because someone is struggling with something, this does not give the doctor the right to play God.  Besides, who is to say some sort of cure won’t be developed the next day?

We all know that abortion is a death sentence.  The cruelest of sins that this nation has ever committed.  God will judge, and it will be judged mightily.  Because a child is deemed an inconvenience, Americans have the right to murder an unborn baby.

In which I take a sabbatical from the news.

November 9, 2008

Today I have decided to take a break from current events.  There is no doubt that I am a news junky and I believe that I can be prone to letting the day’s news effect my attitude.  Lately I have been asking God to show me ways in which I can improve myself.  I think He is asking me to just take a break from the news.

Easier said than done.  I won’t be able to avoid the office talk especially regarding the election, but I will be able to hold off on contributing.  So, if it gets a bit quiet over here at Arrogand New Englander, you’ll know why.

Is Conservatism Dead?

November 5, 2008

This may spell the death of the GOP as we know it.  For years, we have allowed the neoconservative movement run things, and frankly, people were fed up.  Since most of the left believes Bush is representative of true conservatism, they swung more socialist by electing the most liberal senator.

Congratulations, GOP, you may finally be on your way back to your libertarian roots.  It will take years of infighting and grassroots movements, but I hope and pray this spells the death of the neocon super power.

Am I worried about our president elect?  No, not really.  Sure, the man is for breaking the necks of newborn babies, but he will have to contend with God with his decisions.  I pray the man starts reading some non-socialist literature, embraces Austrian Economics, and shrinks the fed.  Fat chance.  Maybe after four years of an Obama presidency, Americans will tire of the liberal wings of the Republican and Democrat parties.

You see, we had our chance.  Ron Paul.  Here was a man of sound economic and diplomatic principals.  A man who warned us about Fannie and Freddie and the implications of government sponsored enterprises.  Unfortunately, the media stifled him, and the neoconservative establishment ridiculed him.

Fortunately, he’s not done.  Just go to http://campaignforliberty.com/ and sign up.  Start to bring real change to this country.

Walk at lunch

November 4, 2008

I took a walk at lunch today.  This really helped to clear my head.  I’m not too concerned about the election, because the two main candidates are not appealing to me.  I really hoped that by now, the Christian right would be through with the Republican party, but apparently they’re not.  I guess McCain knew what he was doing when he chose Palin.

I like Palin, but I don’t think she’ll be an influential VP.  She won’t be like Dick Cheney, that is for sure.

I ran into no lines this morning when going to vote.  The entire process was simple.  I wrote in Ron Paul.  Maybe we’ll see a man like Ron Paul in the White House years from now.  For now, I believe we’re in for some fun and socialistic times!

Don’t think we’re out yet!

October 14, 2008

Sure, the markets had record growth yesterday.  I would hold your excitement off for quite sometime.   I don’t believe the economy is done with this downturn yet.  In fact, check out some of the highest growth rates in history, and a majority of those being in the 30s.  Woohoo!  Anyone for some possum soup?

“Ron Paul is wrong!!”

October 3, 2008

Said a fellow co-worker as we debated the bailout.  His feeling is, if the government does nothing to prevent Wall Street from crumbling, we are all screwed.

Right.  And if Ron Paul is wrong, why has he been right for so many years?  Why did he predict the fallout of a weak market system because of government OVER regulation and a cheap dollar??

Sure, my co-worker wants change.  He has hope.  He is hopeful that Obama will be able to straighten out this mess.  Nope.  You can count on more regulation with him or McCain.

My co-worker is a smart guy.  He understands systems and technology better than most.  He has no understanding on economics.

Don’t worry, the bailout will pass.  And then what?

House to Bailout: No.

September 29, 2008

Today is a good day.  For once the government worked.  They voted down that stupid Bailout bill.  Sure, there will likely be more attempts at passing this, but the liberals and their socialists ways can eat crow for a day.

Youtube video of Ron Paul:

Boy, does he seem excited!  Ron Paul is the man!

I only watched six minutes of her interview, but…

September 26, 2008

I’m left feeling that Sarah Palin is not too bright.  I hope she proves me wrong in future interviews, but she was horribly unprepared, and she came off like a deer stuck in the headlights.  The consensus seems to feel that she didn’t display herself in the most informed and intelligent light.

As I have stated before, I’m not voting for McCain/Palin.  I leaned towards liking Palin for her conservative values, but not enough to hold my nose when voting.  If she continues to present herself as a dummy, her VP career will be over.  Seriously, she looked worse then Bush.  Granted, I didn’t hear the typical Obama “Um, uh, er, uh, um” fillers, so that’s something.

Don’t get me wrong.  I still think Obama is pretty stupid.  He carries around his teleprompter like my toddler carries her dolly.  And if he ever gets in office (which is looking more likely), we’re in for some crazy stupid times, yo!
