Conservatives will fix the mess Obama will leave us

I’ve been waiting to reply to David Casson and his numbskull nutcase think-alikes where it relates to actual money numbers we’ve thrown around trying to justify ridiculous past spending for both entities.

Here’s what it comes down to for Casson and his crew. They are liberals clothed and imbedded in the Democratic party, who believe in giving and spending solely for the purpose of staying in or guaranteeing their party’s longevity. The problem with that is that it is unstastainable and if you’ve got a molecule of brain in your head you’ll know that. We, on the other hand, are considered Republicans but are really and proudly the conservatives of this great nation. We believe in the tenants of the founding fathers where people put forth effort on their own behalf and contribute the best way they can to this country instead of trying to suck it dry as many nations have tried the liberal pathway in history — and all have failed miserably. Did you hear me? I said ALL have failed miserably.

And now for the crowning despicable happenings on your liberal Obama, whose monarchy now begins to unravel, crumble and starts its slow winding way into oblivion and into the trash heap where it belongs! I will have to say very little or anything more, and probably will not, as the country witnesses the demise of this man and his culture of corruption who had the defiant, incredible gall to attempt to create a subtle dictatorship by ignoring our incredible constitution and the laws passed over the years to sustain and re-sustain it when it became necessary to do so when someone like an Obama blew through our land, like the bad smell it is, and threatened what has worked better than any other attempt by world nations throughout history.

So, to all you liberals as you watch the will of the people re-assert itself, be grateful to we conservatives who are content to see our country sustain itself once again through common sense and the rule of law.

Congress has the power to fix the nation’s problems

Washington is going through multiple government scandals, and our president doesn’t know who is responsible. Maybe he should look in the mirror for that answer since he is the executive in charge of these scandalous departments. The public is unaware of more and more of our liberty and freedoms eroding. Congress is taking our rights away one slice at a time and the public is not even concerned. It is time to learn the Constitution to take America back.

Congress is responsible for all the problems that we have today. Congress is the only branch of government with the power to legislate an agency and vote to fund it. If Congress would obey their oath to the Constitution and their enumerated powers, we would have a smaller, less intrusive government in our lives. When Congress starts to defund agencies out of control, then I will know Congress is serious.
