Where Do Republicans Go
From Here? The Social Issues

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/11/2012 6:09:38 PM

Do Democrats engage in soul-searching after they lose an election? Maybe I miss it because I’m not a Democrat, but it doesn’t seem that they do. After John Kerry lost in 2004, did Democrats agonize over whether they should stop opposing the war in Iraq, or become pro-abortion? When Democrats were “shellacked,” as President Obama put it, in 2010, did they debate whether they should come up with a coherent plan to deal with the debt and start adopting budgets? Not that I recall. We Republicans are different. Whenever we lose an election, you can be sure two things

Republican need to stay who they are for the most part.Keep your mouth shut about rape.We didn´t lose this election on issues but personality cult and massive government giveaways and the MSM being 100% in the tank for Obama.You also have an education system that´s rewriting history to make our founders look like villains.

People like Soros knew exactly what to do to destroy this country,all he needed was a willing stooge like Obama.A white Obama would never have gotten re-elected.

I despise my country and what it has become. Where can I go to escape. Please, where can I go and be a white, male physician, veteran, never arrested, never cheated on taxes, never on the dole, paid for everything I ever had and raising some very decent law abiding kids. Is there a country that wants me?? Willing to travel!

Everybody should be able to love whichever consenting adult he or she wishes to love.

Marriage is a religious rite. It violates the separation of church and state for the state to marry people. The state can recognize a civil union. (What next, atheist baptism?)

Abortion is murder. Period.

If we don´t stop sending our children to state run schools we will all die in concentration camps.

I don´t despise my country but I do hate what it has become.

I don´t know much, I´m just a guy but I say fight the dems and let them have what they want now, when the the crash comes, I mean the catastrophic crash comes, we will be the savior of the country with clarity and fiscal sanity.

Right now the population wants Santa Claus, let them have it in spades but be against it all the way.

When people find themselves selling apples on the street corner it will clarify their minds like nothing else... let it come, sooner rather than later, get it over with.

There should be a list of faux Conservatives, even Republicans. Whenever the MSM tries to trot them out as "conservatives", or even "Republicans", we can nip them in the bud.
Lets begin with the Stupid Media´s favorites:
David Brooks
David Frum
Peggy Noonan
Steve "Dumbass fat bald MF" Schmidt

This is just a starting list...

I respectfully disagree with you, #14. I collect social security, after I and my various employers paid into the fund for 60 years!
And I also paid both sides of ss for my self employment for 31 years.
If I had been able to invest the money put into my account over 60 years, I would be much better off than I am now, with the mandated monthly benefit. So I don´t consider my monthly check to be welfare, but a relatively low rate of return on my investment.

The worry of gay marriage isn´t just gay marriage per se. Many are concerned of the slippery slope. If gay marriage is allowed why not polygamy? Gay marriage will of course be advocated in the schools and if it conflicts with your religion you and your children will be bigots.

Good points, #14, but many of us who have adult children with disabilities on SSI know the GOP isn´t referring to our kids when they speak of the Gimme Crowd. It´s not always articulated well by our party´s candidates, that´s true.

I was touched when Mitt Romney mentioned his sister, who has an adult son with Down syndrome, at one of his last campaign stops. He should have made his position on government assistance for this group clearer much earlier in his campaign.

However, I think Republicans should also study and learn strategies to combat election fraud. That was also a factor in Obama´s win, and it has nothing to do with the parties´ positions on various issues.

No, #15, you haven´t "paid" into SS. FICA taxes are general budgetary revenues and are used for current expenditures--war, welfare, foreign aid, interest on the debt--it goes into the general pot. There is no trust fund or "lock box." You haven´t paid a penny into SS.

You´re also taking out far more in benefits that was supposedly "paid" in on your behalf. You´re collecting welfare, period. Not saying we junk SS, but let´s at least be honest. But no one is going to take SS away, so it´s a bit of a red herring. Your comment, however, shows how hard it is to talk honestly about "welfare," corporate or otherwise.

When families were strong, before skyrocketing divorce rates and out-of-wedlock births, people never needed government to be the answer to all their problems. Families cared for their own. The government is a poor substitute and as government attempts to be Mommy and Daddy to 50 million or so people, they are destroying the future of the other 250 million people.

I do not see how we can separate out social issues from fiscal issues. Why? Because the bar keeps getting pushed, by the left, further and further towards the absurd.

For example, my liberty is threatened when I am told that I must play along with some poor deluded soul who was born with male parts and DNA but who now wants to be a female - even if he wants to share the restroom with me. In the workplace or school, notices are posted that promise state sanctions against anyone who shares a differing opinion.

I understand Hinderaker´s view here, but life is not so simple any longer.

Yup, we lost a crucial election. Nope, we are not doomed, done for, killed off or moving to Canada. Not if we retain our love for country and everything it has stood for all these years. I was as depressed as anyone else, but I refuse to allow Barack Obama´s victory to reprogram my confidence that my party can learn from our missteps (perceived or real). And, I will not be defeated by the media and David Axelrod. Those of you who are lying down in surrender should be ashamed.

Thank you, John Hinderaker. I agree with almost everything you said.

I guess I will be fine with a government that is fully socialised, as long as we all pull the cart and I dont get treated like a pack mule because Im white. Hence, I will not be living in the US, because when the US goes full socialist, it will be Venezuela, not Sweden. When I do move, it will be to an all white, no mexican hispanic country, wherever that may be.

Great advice to politicians, ignoring the fact that many hold deep concerns about social issues, including marriage, abortion and "welfare". So, the best strategy is to expect those with "nowhere else to go" to show up along with a number of lightly-principled-centrists to vote for conservatism, if not exactly buy into it. Genius...?

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."
