USA Elections: Country Club Politicians vs Constitutional Conservatives!

Land of the Free, Home of the Brave

Yes, America has arrived at multiple crossroads in this election year.

First, we have the frontline battle in Washington to save our constitution.  Of equal importance, there is a monumental effort to shore up a flagging economy.  This is the first of two articles examining those two crossroads.

There are those who would have you believe the constitution is a living document.  This document was debated, discussed, and approved many years ago as the framework for a free country.  Learned scholars had reviewed and analyzed the pros and cons of every word and syllable of this document.  The US Constitution has stood us in good stead and continues to provide our path through the turbulent times in the world today.

Why is America’s Constitution under attack?  The Democrat Party has been infiltrated and monopolized by Socialists and Marxists in Washington.  There is no mistake.  These groups would have you believe that the great American “experiment” has failed and a change needs to be made.  Because of this change in the Democrat Party (actual leadership in control), the required shift in the Republican party is more urgently needed by the country.

The actual job description in the United States for a politician,  now “mandates” a requirement for Constitutional Conservatives (if our American way of life is to be preserved).  The actions of the “Country Club” Republicans of yesterday will not steer the country back toward the vision of the original founders.  Country Club Republicans need not apply.  The candidates for the US Senate over the last few decades were typically a person who takes office, spent the majority of their life in office, and accumulated various perks and privileges distributed by lobbyists and special interest groups.  In prior years, there wasn’t much harm with these types of people holding office.  Today the heart and soul of America are at stake.  We must elect those who are willing to stand up and fight for our constitution.

There are many such examples of this “war” in the Republican Party being played out today.  In Texas, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst is challenging Mr. Ted Cruz for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Mrs. Kay Bailey Hutchinson.  Lt. Governor Dewhurst and Mr. Cruz have devoted many years of service to our country.  This is where the similarity ends.  Being an independent writer, I’ve had the opportunity to observe the leadership of Lt. Governor Dewhurst in the Texas Senate.  He is a moderate, who is reluctant to tackle tough, constitutional issues.  Unfortunately, this is exactly the job description required to take our country back from the sharp swing left toward a more socialist society.  The Lt. Governor’s strong supporters include the majority of  high profile lobbyists in Texas and “squishy” Republicans in the Texas legislature and in Washington.   I appreciate people who give to the country, but believe the age of the Country Club Republicans who hold court must necessarily end.

A man who will listen to the people and defend our liberty.

Enter Mr. Ted Cruz.  He is a Constitutional Conservative.  Mike Lee and Rand Paul are Constitutional Conservatives who were elected to the U.S. Senate in the last few years.  They are among a handful of new U.S. Senators who endeavor daily to defend the Constitution from the sharp tug to the left by socialists such as Senator Harry Reid and his cronies.   Mr. Cruz has successfully defended the United States Constitution at the state, and national level.  He has fought for US Sovereignty against a world court and the President of the United States.  The time has come for Texas to send in more cavalry for Senator Mike Lee, Senator Rand Paul, Senator Pat Toomey, and other strong constitutionalists such as Senator Jim DeMint.   These men are unafraid to make the difficult choices and are not ruled by special interests or lobbyists.

From local level through the highest national levels, we see the fight for true Constitutional Conservatism against political cronyism.  Witness the HD 26 race in Fort Bend County Texas.  Mrs. Jacquie Chaumette is another person, unafraid to make strong intelligent choices to protect citizens of Texas.  Her opponent is supported by many of the Country Club Republicans who have made a career and fortune by being “popular” with special interest groups and big lobbyists in Texas.   Mrs. Chaumette has served in positions that afforded her the opportunity to make strong fiscal choices based upon the laws of our state and our country.   She is definitely part of the breath of fresh air surging forward in American Politics.

So, the choice is yours.  Do you continue to elect career politicians who bend to the whims of lobbyists and special interest groups?  OR, do you elect new people who are not under the control of those groups?  Have a look at the supporters of people, prior to voting.   We need people with a strong ability to stand up for the people, not the special interest groups.

Constitutional Conservatives are the prescription required for an ailing country.  Elect them at all levels of government.

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”

Patrick Henry

Is Herman Cain The One?

Posted on April 17, 2011. Filed under: 2012, Conservative, Elections, government, Healthcare, Politics | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Herman Cain spoke this evening at the Texas Tea Party Patriots PAC in Woodlands, Texas.   There was much to learn about the man at the press conference and during the event.   Passion and knowledge prevailed in his insightful views on the state of the country and the possibilities.

Recently, Chairman Bernanke of the Federal Reserve declared we don’t really have much inflation and that the economy is recovering.  I asked Mr. Cain if he would share his views on the Federal Reserve.  His answer was succinct and on point.  He does not think we need to do away with the Federal Reserve.  Mr. Cain served on the Board of the Federal Reserve in the 90s.  His opinion is the Federal Reserve  has changed significantly since he served, and needs to be fixed.  Quote Mr. Cain:  “I respectfully disagree with Chairman Bernanke regarding inflation.  There is inflation when I go to pump gas and the price has gone up a dollar a gallon.”  Mr. Cain also stated he respectfully disagreed with Chairman Bernanke on the recovery in America.  “How could we be in economic recovery when 15M people are unemployed? This month’s numbers on unemployment have gone back up over 400,000!  This is not recovery.”  In his view, the Federal Reserve has become overly politicized. 

Mr. Cain observed we had become a nation of crises.  America has a crisis of morality, economics, immigration, spending, energy, national security, and a lack of leadership.  It is important in leadership to identify the right problem, surround yourself with the right people, and provide common sense solutions.   In his view, the lack of leadership is permitting the crises to continue growing in the country.

He expressed amazement  regarding the President;s decision on loaning  money to Brazil for drilling oil.  The President stated the United States would be Brazil’s customer.  Mr. Cain was passionate in his argument we should be our own customer.  It is important to drill here, and drill now!  If he runs for President, this is a priority. 

When asked why he should be President, the answer was insightful.  He is a problem solver.  The career experience reflects a gift at problem solving.  The job of President, particularly in these difficult times in America, requires a problem solver.

Over the past 7 days, he had traveled to 9 states and had 16 engagements.  Why?  He is talking to conservatives and determining if he will run for President.   In his mind, he had set 4 criteria for his decision.  Three of the four criteria had exceeded expectations.  The fourth criteria had met expectations.  He is a few weeks away from making a decision.   It was not his intention to ever run for President.  He felt compelled to consider it, after the President signed Obamacare into law.  This law is unconstitutional and tramples on the rights of Americans.  Mr. Cain takes liberty very seriously.

During his speech, there were several specific examples given of economic changes he would make in the country.  Stimulating the economy requires putting more money in the hands of individuals and businesses.   He proposed a 6.2% tax holiday for one year for the employers and employees.   There were several ideas proposed to promote business in the United States rather than allowing the business to go overseas.

It was clear by the end of the speech, Mr. Cain is a leader.  He has a vision of how to solve the nation’s problems.  His advice to the audience:  “Stay Informed, Stay Involved, and Stay Inspired.  Everyone will need to participate in efforts countering the plethora of misinformation that is being circulated.  There is 50% of the country that doesn’t have a clue.  Doing research and getting educated on the issues will be a critical component of the plan to win in 2012.

I would be remiss if the highlight of the evening was not included.   For the finale,  speakers and  Teaparty volunteers gathered on stage for a song.  They were singing God Bless America and Mr. Cain led the audience in singing with them.  This was one of those “Kodak” moments you know will not be forgotten for a very long time.

So, is he the “one” to run for President and win it for conservatives in 2012?  At this point, he is probably one of only a handful of people who could adequately address the challenges facing our country.  His expertise and wisdom clearly outshines the Administration in Washington today.  The love he exhibits for God, family, and country is evident.  Clearly he would be a formidable candidate against President Obama.  We will know shortly! 

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.  Ronald Reagan
