Look At It This Way (#LAITW)

Who Put the Hole in the Wall

by on Sep.08, 2016, under Uncategorized

“Blaming others is our natural inclination to avoid taking responsibility for our own actions. It was a lot easier for me to blame my kids for not putting the chair back. But they did not throw the chair and put the hole in the wall. I did. These voters nominated the one guy who was never going to beat Hillary. They can blame everyone else all they want, but at the end of the day they put the hole in the wall.” Erick Erickson

Interesting take on who did what to whom to get to this point in an election, and who’s really to blame.

Two Articles

I don’t often just point to articles. But these two came in the same email and I found both uniquely interesting. At first blush, they seem entirely unrelated. Maybe not so much.

Persons of character matter

It’ll be another President Clinton – prepare thy self.

I’m going to do a fair amount of looking at Gary Johnson. At this point, he’s my only potential option that could make any difference at all, not that I think he can win. He can’t. But a good 3rd party showing might enhance future choices. I simply can’t vote for either of the two major party nominees; neither is fit for the office.

I will vote. If Gary Johnson doesn’t work out for me, I’ll write in Ted Cruz.

Persons of character matter.

Judicial Supremacy

by on Jun.28, 2016, under Uncategorized

We’ve been here before. At one time, the Supreme Court supported slavery, too. And fought women’s suffrage (that’s bad, you may need to look up suffrage). It’s not easy to overcome a misguided majority (I’m being generous). Lincoln did it. Any Lincolns out there!?…

#DumpTrump

by on Jun.28, 2016, under Uncategorized

Whether you do it with the math, moral arguments, talk about character, war chests, competence, or whatever… There is really only one possibly successful path. The Red State guy summed it up this way:

1. We cannot let Hillary win.
(and)
2. Trump can’t/won’t beat her.
(therefor)
3. Dump Trump and put up someone else.

I think that about sums it up.

Given the path that this country is on, which is to say away from the Constitution and towards big-(corrupt-)government socialism, our future is on the line here. Yeah, we’ve been here before, sort of, but the last couple decades (the last 8 years particularly) has brought us, I think, to a precipice.

I sense that the Republican Convention this year will be a bellwether few days. Either they stick with Trump and we get Hillary, or they take a stand (you name for what, they all work) and make a run with someone else.

We can hope for an incremental victory. Don’t get too excited, we could elect an original Founding Father and he would not be able to turn this ship around very fast. I’ll be glad to take even a baby step in that direction. Look for character, statesmanship, spotless history (yes, there are some of us that are pretty clean, certainly compared to the crop in DC), and a commitment to the principles of the Constitution and small government.

At the Core of Conservatism

by on Jun.07, 2016, under Uncategorized

One thought…

“Conservative wisdom and principles are derived from the willingness to learn, not just from what is going on now, but from what has happened before. The principles of conservatism are sound because they’re based on what men and women have discovered through experience, in not just one generation or a dozen, but in all the combined experience of mankind.”

Ronald Reagan

Parenting Advice

I know, this has nothing to do with the basic intent of this website. But, I thought this was worth sharing and didn’t know where else to put it (I don’t have a parenting blog)…

“When a kid’s in trouble, close your mouth and open your arms.” (not sure the source, was a trendfrenzy.net link.)

Drifting from the Truth…

The further a society drifts from the truth the more it will hate those who speak it.

Couple Good Quotes

by on Apr.20, 2016, under Truisms

“When more Americans prefer freebies to freedom, these great United States will become a fertile ground for tyranny.” Allen West

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” George Washington

Two Million Votes

by on Apr.19, 2016, under Do the Math

That’s all that will make the difference says Ed Morrissey in his new book, “Going Red”. Red as in Republican, not red as in communist.

The book argues that 2,000,000 voters in just 7 counties across the country will determine whether we get turned around or continue the course we’re on in this country.

Good luck.
