The “Neofiscapaleon” 2016
The American People can continue to blindly vote for the winner of 2015-2016 Popularity Contest for their next President, or they can get busy finding the correct person to lead this country. Make no mistake about it, the “media” will attempt everything under the sun to misinform you all the way to the polls, where they pray that you will vote for the person that “they” have pre-selected for you.
The left wing media is every bit as involved in choosing a Republican candidate, as they are in propping up their candidate – Hillary Clinton. The goal of our dear media is to insure they pick a candidate that – at least half of all registered Republicans can’t stomach. That’s easy enough to do, because it’s virtually impossible to get 10 people in a room that will agree on everything. This is the problem! The media and opposing party’s all realize that the Republican party will be looking for the “perfect” candidate, that can never be found!
Republicans think they will boil it down to “the lesser of 2 evils” by the end of the Republican National Convention. What they will ultimately wind up with are the GOP Establishment candidate and the winner of the popularity contest, that has been going on for the previous year and a half. Once the RNC convenes, only a handful of people will remember the previous convention and the shenanigans that took place in order to select the GOP chosen preference. Voila! You got it! Here’s your newest, greatest hope for a better 4 years. A couple of billion dollars down the drain on wasted campaigns, and what we end up with is the GOP and media pick that has always been there from the beginning. Let the celebrations begin over at the DNC Headquarters!
On the outside chance that some citizens get really super patriotic and start agreeing with each other for the betterment of everyone, and elect a candidate that a majority actually agree with – then there’s the election booth and the counting of votes itself to contend with. Does the name Chris McDaniels ring a bell? It’s not always the other party or Al Franken that can steal an election – just ask Harry Reid or W.
In other words, unless the election results in a total landslide victory – there’s no such thing as a fair election anymore. Only the people with “no memory, short memory, or are totally lost behind their rose colored glasses” will feel that this is too cynical, and can’t possibly be true.
So what does the media have in mind for the Republican Party? Let’s go with a Social Conservative as the Democrats will have absolutely no chance of losing in that department. The media can tie the minds of the citizenry with slanted and unbalanced “breaking now” stories for the next 100 years on those subjects alone. Abortion, same sex marriage, religious liberty and illegal immigration have put many liberal democrats in office for decades and a good social conservative wouldn’t have a snowballs chance, in an attempt to out-politic one of these pros. Even the Tea Party could get behind anyone that is against these issues.
Running a social conservative against Hillary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren is like bringing a knife to a gunfight. But a good fight against mainstays of the liberal regime is just too much to resist for those just itching for a battle of wits. Our nation has far too many people that would rather win the battle, than win the war within our own divided country.
Let me introduce the Neofiscapaleon (No it’s not an offshoot of Sarah Palin) This brand of Conservative is a combination of Neo, Fiscal and Paleo conservatism.
Fiscal conservatives oppose unnecessary government expenditures, deficits, and government debt. (No, they’re not the same) They take the perspective of the present and future taxpayers, and worry about the possible burden on them. They support balanced budgets!
Neoconservatives believe in a diplomatic foreign policy, stimulating economic growth by lowering taxes and finding alternative ways to deliver public welfare services. Culturally, neoconservatives tend to identify with traditional conservatives, but stop short of providing guidance on social issues
Paleoconservatives emphasize a connection with the past. Like neoconservatives, paleoconservatives tend to be family-oriented, religious-minded and opposed to the vulgarity permeating modern culture. They are also opposed to mass immigration and believe in the complete withdrawal of US military troops from foreign countries.
Until Americans quit worrying about whether the girl next door is dating a Muslim, and her brother is having gay sex with an illegal alien, we will continue on the same path. Not that these issues aren’t important, but little things like government corruption, wars, the IRS and foreign policy matter much more to so many of us. Once our nation slips back into another depression/recession, and the countries that have lost all respect for us continue to kill American citizens at even more alarming rates – who’s sleeping with whom, won’t really matter – will it? Just don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater!
We really need to put down the coloring books and get back to business!
