I’m enlisting to fight in Andrew Breitbart’s war. The political class in Washington has degraded America. Republicans and Democrats blame each other, and nothing gets done. The media exacerbates the problem, fans the flames and encourages false notions of “civility” and “objectivity” while pushing “bipartisanship” that doesn’t actually solve problems. While this charade perpetuates indefinitely, America grows weaker. She’s digging herself deeper into debt and isn’t even searching for solutions to her problems. Entitlements and government overspending gets worse every day while laws go unenforced
We all need join in whatever way we can. There are millions of is. It´s hard to take time for rallies, marches, town hall meetings, etc. but things have gotten so bad that we have to rekindle the passion the Tea Party had in 2009. I went to Washington and it was so inspirational. We need to demand town hall meetings all over this country and explain to our congressmen and senators who they work for.
Cut the guy a little slack, he was only 21 in ´08. "If you´re not a liberal when you´re 25, you have no heart. If you´re not a conservative by the time you´re 35, you have no brain." So the kid is ahead of the curve.
Like Andrew and Saul on the road to Damascus, this author witnessed the TRUTH first hand and vows to fight the fight to expose the evil. It´s even better that he´ll pick up Andrew´s sword and go after those on both sides of the political spectrum who are corrupting the institutions of our government and culture.
It´s all about our inalienable rights and those who are determined to smother those rights by forcing big government into every crevasse of our lives. Our liberty comes from God. That´s why we must all pick up our swords and get back in the fight to protect it and save it from the political class.

I´ll cut him some slack for the Obama vote when he was 21....Afterall, I voted fro Ross Perot when I was 31. I cast that vote in hopes of waking up the Republican Party. It didn´t work, and we all suffered for such stupidity.
I shake my head at his 2008 vote, but considering the ´discussions´ ahead of him when he speaks to his peers, I´d say his punishment will be excessive. One thing about a reformed person, they are often more passionate and articulate about a subject after they´ve turned, so go nuts Matt. You will face the most willfully stupid people on the planet.
Give the kid a break. Like many others who made a mistake with a first vote for Obama, we need them to awaken and join us if we are to avoid another Obama.
The author’s lesson (and many others’ lesson) should be that vote is a powerful thing and should never be issued lightly. Those who voted for Obama have grievously injured their country, and that is not a trifling thing. It is something to be deeply ashamed of, with a vow to never do so again.
The media worked diligently to pull the wool over the eyes of anyone who didn’t read carefully and widely, and their sin, unlike that of the naïve, is intentional and unforgivable, if not downright treasonous.
But the author’s epiphany should be acknowledged, and his joining ranks with Brietbart should be celebrated. We’ll need him and more like him to win our country back.
I´m guessing that in 2008 he was ignorant, but not stupid. The stupid ones are all still right behind hussein. Don´t forget: Reagan was formerly a Democrat AND a union man. We´re all human. Well, not obama. He is Lucifer´s terminator.
Let us hope he really has learned this lesson and doesn´t do an about face when the media and Chicago thug political machine trot out their next messiah. Let us also hope that there are many other 20-something professionals out there who are thinking the same thoughts and feeling just as used and abused by the DC "politics as usual" machine.
The truth is... regardless of who wins, the DC political system and all it´s scurrying minions profit. The system is and has been broke for a long time.
Most of us only voted ONCE this past election. Thats why we lost. The other side found ways to count the dead, to count dogs and cats, and to count votes TWICE. Dont belive me? Then YOU are part of the problem, because VOTER FRAUD is why we lost...just ask that smirking chimp George Soros, he´ll ´splain it to ya.
#s 3 and 4: Without repentance (turning back to the right direction) and reconciliation (welcoming back after straying) it will take generations just to restore parity between left and right. Besides, converts are often the most ardent and articulate defenders of their side, whether in faith or in politics.
Welcome back, Matthew. I threw my first vote away on Dukakis, went Libertarian in 1992, and was reborn Conservative in 1993.
Every governmental model has its own serious shortcomings (and for those who care, every model we know is contrary to the Gospel in its own assortment of ways). But big-government socialism is among the most oppressive.
Sorry, but never before in America´s history has there been a bigger, more dangerous and distructive mistake than Obama. So those of us who have also sinned (made a similar mistake) did not sin as much.
Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know
A&E broke its silence on Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments late Wednesday. The cable network announced Robertson is off the hit show for the time being. The network issued the following statement to EW: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
The gay and lesbian rights group GLAAD is slamming ´Duck Dynasty´ patriarch Phil Robertson for comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine, and challenging the show´s network, A&E, to take action against its most popular star. In a wide-ranging interview, Robertson shared his thoughts on homosexuality and religion. After stating in very graphic terms his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex, Robertson launched into more thoughts about homosexuality and sinning. “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine,” he said.
Yes, she really said it. On CNN’s Piers Morgan Live Tuesday, in a brief discussion about President Obama, Barbara Walters actually said, “We thought that he was going to be - I shouldn´t say this at Christmastime, but - the next messiah” (video follows with transcript and commentary): PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?
Everyone is doing thoughtful year-end pieces on President Obama. Writers and reporters agree he’s had his worst year ever. I infer from most of their essays an unstated but broadly held sense of foreboding: There’s no particular reason to believe next year will be better, and in fact signs and indications point to continued trouble. I would add that in recent weeks I have begun to worry about the basic competency of the administration, its ability to perform the most fundamental duties of executive management. One reason I worry is that I frequently speak with people who interact with the White
O ne year removed from re-election, President Obama´s approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama´s popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama´s job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That´s down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep drop? Well, the first year of Obama´s second term
John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he´s already ruffling Republican feathers. In a profile published late Tuesday night by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana. "They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress," said Podesta of what Obama´s White House team faces.
