No, No, No….Sorry All

Friends,

The post below is a good example of a rule that I have. That is to get your idea in writing and posted on the same day. I had absolutely no intention to imply that our independent nature is the same as the special class I tried unsuccessfully to identify. The group I refer to is the ones that are totally apathetic about our government and their role in it as citizens.

Jaybear nailed it in his response to my unconscionable choice of words and lack of proper identification of whom that screed was aimed at:

But I tell my friends is that I am a rightward leaning independent. I do not identify with those “obama gonna give me money” idiots whom the media call independents, they are afraid to call those people what they really are……slaves to the welfare state and to those slave-masters who propagate it. The slaves to the state will be the death of this Republic, they are the ones that merit your anger JB

That is my ONLY intent by the use of the word independents. In fact, I almost used the “Obama’s got a stash” to state my point. Indeed that is precisely my point, we have true independents like ourselves and the media’s use of the word to describe independent voters that are also what Wilkow calls the “zero liability voters”. They pay no taxes, accept every government benefit they can get, honestly or not so honestly and vote pretty consistently for more of the same, with not a clue or worry about WHO pays for their greed. The left aims their platform on wooing this bunch.

For the record, I like most of you, consider my a conservative and nothing more. I mailed back my RNC card, after scraping my cat’s litter box with it, years ago. I would NEVER, EVER even consider stating that one must identify with any political party. I actually pretty much despise both organized parties, their only goal on both sides is to win elections instead of what it should be, to serve the electorate.

My apology for the poor use of words and a disjointed post.

I figured you were referring to “Moderates”.

The people who get their attention diverted from American Idol and America’s Biggest Chubby just long enough to stumble to the polls and vote for whoever the MSM is touting as the “hippest” candidate.

Well don’t feel bad; you know what you meant and you’ve explained any possible confusion away. I think people probably trust you enough to give you the benefit of the doubt 🙂

I have always considered myself to be an “independent”. Never beholding to any party, trying my damnedest to vote for the best qualified person for the particular office being vacant at the time. That the media is willing to lump every individual who claims to be independent (no real research into past voting records…as if there was a legal way… Read more »

Well, I started by reading this one, so I guess I knew what you were talking about when I read the previous/next post. Even so, why in the fuck can we not come up with another hard core CONSERVATIVE in the supposedly conservative party? As for identification politically, I keep trying to vote for the most conservative person I can… Read more »

DJ, I have no problem with anyone who feels principled enough to stand by their beliefs, and not adhere to a particular party line, if it fails to properly reflect their mindset. Even if I find said mindset reprehensible, I can still give them their due for having the gumption to stand up for what they believe in. What I… Read more »

JB. No need to explain. I understood what you were saying in the first post. I think the pundits are wrong in regards to the makeup of the independants. I think a sizable portion of what they use to define as independants have been part of the tea party awakening. These were the quiet ones, folks focusing more on raising… Read more »

JB, when you wrote the first post, I didn’t for a minute think you were referring to anyone here, so I was, truth be told, a bit puzzled by the strong reactions. Independents here are not going to be the same ones that vege on the latest Idol, or what’s happening between Angie & Brad lately, or any other soap-operaish… Read more »

On a more serious note, is he giving up his cushy pension? Congress critters who resign should forfeit their pensions. Why should I continue to pay a salary to someone who QUITS?

But I think he has kept us from continuing to free-fall like we were. How ? By spending MORE than every administration before him combined? The housing market is so far in the shitter, that it is worse that it was during the Great Depression. The unemployment rate is 25% or higher. And the percentage of Americans on food stamps… Read more »

In the past eleven presidential election cycles, I voted five times for the Republican candidate and five times for the Democratic candidate.

I want to see the voting records on that.

Did I ever expect Obama to “fix” things? Nope – at least not in one term or even two. But I think he has kept us from continuing to free-fall like we were.

Yeah. He’s shoved a Saturn V rocket up our collective asses so that now were hurtling to the ground at 20,000 miles an hour.

Since you bought the package with your vote, yeah I thought you expected O’Stalin to fix things.

Meanwhile, in the real world, we knew that the pResident was a corrupt, Marxist, racist politician from Illinois.
