The Republican Frontrunners
It’s presidential politics season. Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are poor excuses for Presidential candidates. Earlier in the week it came to light that good old Mitt had placed tens of millions of dollars in an offshore account in the Cayman Islands so he could do what the rich always do, either avoid paying taxes or pay as little tax as possible. Now he wants to be President of the United States and wants YOU to vote for him. That’s his version of presidential politics. What will he tell the good citizens of this country if he is elected and suddenly sees the need to raise taxes as George Bush the elder did in his one term in office? Will he repatriate those tens of millions of dollars that are in offshore accounts so he can pay more taxes like the rest of us or will he keep them there? How will he play the the game of presidential politics? More importantly, why should we elect as President a candidate who seems to be doing what he can to avoid paying taxes? Is Mitt a hypocrite? It would seem so. That’s typical of presidential politics.
The news regarding Newt Gingrich and his version of presidential politics is even more disturbing. His ex-wife Marianne called him out on national TV. She said he wanted an open marriage so he could carry on his affair with the woman who would eventually become wife number three, Callista. According to wife number two, Marianne, wife to be number three Callista didn’t care what Newt did, so why should Marianne? Because Marianne took her vows seriously Newt, as you obviously did not. Can you imagine good ol’ Newt being elected and a situation coming up that would benefit him and violate his oath of office? Wonder what Newt would do? Would he violate his oath of office like he did his oath of marriage? One can only wonder. More typical presidential politics.
A Despicable Question
In the last televised debate in South Carolina in this nasty season of presidential politics the moderator brought up wife number two’s accusation. Newt bristled and went on the offensive. Typical of the theater that is presidential politics, of course. How could the moderator believe his ex wife and ask such a “despicable” question? Typical response by a Narcissistic politician. The audience, filled with Newt supporters, cheered their hero on. Otto Von Bismarck, the 19th century German Chancellor once said, ” Don’t believe anything in politics until it is officially denied.” Newt officially denied Marianne’ story. According to Von Bismarck that means we should believe her, not him.
Newt has a marvelous track record with leaving his ex wives regardless of his questionable congressional record. As Speaker of the House he was one of the House Republicans leading the charge to impeach Clinton. Never mind that his sins were probably worse. Nothing stops a narcissistic and hypocrite when he is pursuing a political advantage. Clinton got oral sex in the Oval Office. Newt purportedly got oral sex in his car. Dear Old Newt left his first wife when she was in the hospital fighting cancer. He left his second wife when she was diagnosed with MS. Clearly, Newt is not a man with a great sense of morality or concern for the well being for others. Would you really want to entrust the running of the Republic to a narcissist like Newt? Are you sure he’d be looking after the best interests of the American people? His track record suggests he’d be too busy looking after his own.
Newt Wins South Carolina
Despite Newt’s marital track record and lack of a moral compass he won the South Carolina Republican primary, capturing 44% of the Evangelical Christian vote. All those voters who claim to be concerned with morality and family voted for a candidate who has shown a clear disdain for both. That’s presidential politics for you. Play to people’s stupidity and prejudices and you will win.
Newt’s only allegiance it seems is to himself. The hypocrite in chief was helped to the victory podium by his band of adoring fellow hypocrites. Oh, the lovely, rational world of presidential politics. A quote of Jesus’s seems pertinent here. “If the blind lead the blind both shall fall into the ditch.”
So here we have Romney and Gingrich, two highly flawed hopefuls in the mean and spiteful world of presidential politics. Meanwhile, another Republican candidate Ron Paul continues to tell the truth about the Federal Reserve; the dangers to our economy and the future; the studipity and futility of foreign entanglements; and the need to restore our liberties and civil rights, which both Republican and Democratic administrations in this new century have systematically dismantled. Rep. Paul has been married to the same woman for fifty four years. He is honest. He is transparent. He is moral. He tells the truth. And he is hardly mentioned in the national media. Yet he is a huge step up from the aforementioned candidates. Why do the pygmies get all the press and Ron Paul gets none? Because he’s honest, moral, tells the truth and wants to get America back on track. Those qualities are irrelevant in the current state of presidential politics.
The Global Controllers
The global controllers don’t want America to get back on track. They don’t want the world to work. They have brought down the economy, destroyed the family, made people obsessed with sex and degraded the moral fiber of this great nation.
In the coming election we will be faced with voting for a Republican pygmy or a Democratic putz. The choice is between horrible and terrible. Pick your poison. Either way the American people will lose but the global controllers will win, just as they have since the advent of the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913. Welcome to the death spiral that is presidential politics.
Shortly before his death President Woodrow Wilson, who signed the Federal Reserve Act, said this: “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
That’s presidential politics folks, where corruption and chicanery are the order of the day and always have been.
