I had a very interesting conversation today on Facebook which is kind of worries some in a lot of respects of how people just blindly follow party lines and it doesn't really matter who the candidate is, they will vote for them.
The same is true with people who still feel that Obama is the best thing since sliced bread however when asked to clarify and backup their statement… They cannot.
Take Obamacare for example.
Being somebody who actually looked at the bill, I have been saying ever since its inception about the penalties if you do not have "qualifying" healthcare you will pay a fine.
You would think that alone would get people upset. However, there was nothing but silence.
We don't think of anything like Nancy Pelosi saying, "You have to pass the bill to know what's in it…"
Now, as many tax preparers such as H&R Block are informing people how much their penalties would be if they did not have insurance, we are starting to read stories that people were unaware that there was a penalty.
As I've been saying from the onset… Wait tell 2016 when Obamacare goes into full effect and your fines will be anywhere from $2100 or 2.1% of your income.
If you don't believe me… Go read the bill.
So today, Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for the president of the United States.
Why is this a bad idea?
The first thing that comes to mind and we can thank President Obama for sending race relations back a generation or two about racism.
While I will admit that in 2008, I was very excited about having somebody different than the old school become president, I can't help but the once bitten twice shy that if we elect our first female president that sexism will become the new racism.
Is that fair to her to think that way? No! It is not.
I for one would not have a problem with a woman president such as Sarah Palin who given the choice I would vote for over Hillary any day.
But as I said, once bitten twice shy and any woman candidate would have to come out and specify wholeheartedly that sexism is not going to be an excuse.
If there's one thing, that president Obama has shown us is just how out of control our government actually is and how they had gotten involved in issues that should not even concerned the White House.
Trey von Martin and Ferguson are two examples of local issues that never would've made national news or given much attention until the White House came out and make a big deal about it.
"If I had a son…"
An appropriate for president and the attorney general.
Yet, people still blindly support Obama and are afraid to comment against them for fear of being called a racist even though his policies are wrong and damaging.
Let me cite Obamacare again as an example.
According to the Constitution… Only Congress can enact a tax.
Originally, Obamacare had a fine. It was the courts that change that fine to a tax.
Being forced to purchase a commodity was not something that the framers of the Constitution had in mind. Moreover, where does this stop?
Bottom line folks… It's time to look beyond party lines and look at the individual.
Moreover, demand that our elected representatives follow the Constitution and not be above the law.
