Stand Firm Republicans

December 26, 2012 4:20 pm 0 comments

Since the President’s recent reelection, he and the liberal political pundits have claimed a mandate for tax increases.  What they seem to forget is that the electorate also gave the Republican Party the majority mantle in the House.  I don’t recall one Republican Representative campaigning on tax increases during the last election cycle.  In fact, most persuaded their districts into electing them based on a promise that they would not yield to President Obama’s call for raising taxes.  Let’s not forget that his so called tax on the rich would result in a tax increase for over one million small businesses.  Given this background, I was shocked when Speaker Boehner recently proposed a compromise that included tax increases.

I am thankful for the conservatives Representatives in the House who stopped  Republican efforts to acquiesce in tax increases as part of a deal with President Obama.  When will we learn that you cannot compromise on core principles that will allow our failing economy to further slide in to the economic abyss.  When we compromise on our core principles and campaign promises, we lose.  Representative Louie Gohmert said it best,  ”We know that our big problem is too much spending.”  Democrats have set the trap, arguing that if Republicans will just raise taxes we can come along with cuts later; we cannot fall for it.  Under the leadership of President George W. Bush, Republicans passed tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 that removed the increases in taxes President Clinton gave us.   Now, President Obama wants to raise taxes again.

I am firmly convinced that there is no stronger voice than that of the grass-roots activists, the men and women who spend time away from family, friends, hobbies, and businesses to get these folks elected.  It is time to let your voice be heard!  Please use the link below and call, email or fax our Republican Representatives  all around the country and let them know that a tax increase is not the solution.  Remember, the issue isn’t that we are taxed too little, the problem is the government spends too much!  Encourage our Republican Representatives to stand firm, ask them not to compromise on principle, remind them to be true to their campaign promises, and request that they oppose any compromise that would result in undoing the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003.  Thank you for making a difference!

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.
