Last 2015 Debate

110 Views

Last night was the last Republican presidential debate of 2015. And the last before the Iowa Caucus ends up casting the first vote in the nation on choosing who will be the Republican nominee.

In the first debate of the evening we had Graham, Huckabee, Santorum, and Pataki. Graham doesn’t listen to anyone. Most of his answers are naive at best and dangerous to our national security. He is a fool. Pataki likewise just doesn’t have it in him to be President, he was a little better than Graham. Between Santorum and Huckabee, I believe Huckabee won the day and the debate. He would be a good VP choice for whomever gets the nomination.

During the main event. Trump was attacked, just as he was attacked during the first debate. But Trump defended and clarified his positions. He has come a long way since entering the field of being an active voice in politics. He even defended Jeb. But Jed still openly attacked him and shared some of the same lack of listening skills shown by Graham in the first debate.

The Gov of Ohio, I keep forgetting his name, is just a blowhard. He likes to talk but really doesn’t say much of anything.

Rand and Jeb’s idea about not using ground troops in the Middle East is absolutely absurd. Rand will not make the US safe at all from Islamic or other terrorists.

Cruz, who seems to think he is leading in Iowa, based on a poll conducted by the Des Moines Register, also is a blowhard. He talks, he talks over the moderators. And he keeps on talking well after his time has expired. It shows lapses in his character. His father would be a better candidate but unfortunately his father was not a natural born citizen.

Rubio has a few issues as well. He has no executive experience. He is in full time campaign mode. Reminds me of Obama, who was always campaigning. Rubio was sent to the Senate to vote but misses most of them because he is out running for President. What happens if he gets to be President, will he do his job then?

Ben Carson and Trump seem to have patched things up as Trump had good things to say about Ben during the debate. And like usual, Ben didn’t have many speaking opportunities.

Carly is dangerous when it comes to freedom. She would trade freedom and several of our Bill of Rights for safety. This cannot be allowed. The NSA spying on Americans and the collection of metadata and other data needs to stop.

Trump has the right ideas when it comes to national security issues. With the right Congress and the right advisors in place. His ideas would be implemented with great care and ease.

It’s not about same-sex marriage

The real story of Kim Davis is not about same-sex marriage. It is about the power that the Courts have usurped from the legislative branch, the executive branch and the from the people. This usurption has been slowly done over the past 100+ years. Case after case that comes before the Courts where the Court deems that they have the power and the authority to do what the US Constitution and the constitutions of the several states do not give it.

The Supreme Court of the United States of America has issued an Opinion that somehow has become a statute in this country. This Opinion of the Court not only struck down the Defence of Marriage Act (a Statute enacted by Congress and signed by the President), but somehow added a new statute that replaced DOMA. A “Marriage Equality Act” that is not an act of Congress but of one by the Courts.

Not only does the Court NOT have the right to create legislation. They also do not have the right to strike down legislation. The so-called power of “Judicial Review” was a power that the Court gave to itself in the opening decade of the 1800’s.

Add to this injustice, Kim Davis was found to be in “Contempt of Court” and criminally jailed for the offence. Her trial was by the Judge that found her in Contempt. He was also the jury. Denying Mrs Davis of her 7th Amendment Rights to have a trial by Jury. This is another court given power that the court has given itself.

From the County Courts, to the State Courts, to the Supreme Court of the land. The Black Robed Tyrants have given themselves powers and authority not granted to them by Law or statute. The Court was wrong to create legislation. The Court was wrong to jail Kim Davis without a trial by jury.

The Court is out of control and this is deeply disturbing and troubling. Correcting and reigning in the Court should be one of the first priorities of anyone running for office at any level. Otherwise, the Courts will continue there power grab and we will have a system of government ruled by the Courts instead of by the people.

Election Cycle

It’s 2015 and we are approaching the next big election cycle. Maybe I will get back into the grove of posting my thoughts as time gets closer and the candidates come to Iowa to be vetted. Every election is always given the title of the “most important election.” And the same will be for the 2016 Presidential Election.

Why is every election the “most important election” of your life time? Simply because in every election you, as the voter, reaffirms your belief in our Republic. You shape the future of our Republic.

Use your vote carefully so that future generations will still have our Republic the way it was intended to be. Even our Founding Fathers knew that the Republic they created would not be destroyed by outside forces. As no outside force would be able to take it down. It could be destroyed from the inside.
