"It's All Mental"

In case any of you were wondering whether presidential candidate Bob Barr would turn out to be just another quixotic third party carrot-chaser, I encourage you to look at the recent 50 state polling data from Zogby.

These are the states in which Barr is polling over 5%, reflecting the growing disenchantment among voters with the failed big government policies of John McCain.

New Hampshire - 10%

Oklahoma - 9%

New Mexico - 9%

Nevada - 9%

Georgia - 8%

Colorado - 8%

Minnesota - 8%

Iowa - 8%

Arizona - 7%

Ohio - 7%

Indiana - 7%

Tennessee - 7%

Texas - 6%

Florida - 6%

Missouri - 6%

Oregon - 6%

Michigan - 6%

Maryland - 6%

South Carolina - 6%

The presidential race may be turning you off with its two excrutiatingly boring major candidates, but the imperative issue of foreign policy has once again raised its head, showing how we must be ever active in our support of a real conservative candidate.

After the alleged "missile tests," by Iran, American rhetoric towards them will start to heat up intensely. Naturally, John McCain will be more than happy to drag us into a war if he elected, with Obama likely to do the same in order not to be called a sissy by the war-lovers in the GOP and in the press releases of AIPAC.

If we were to start a war with Iran--a certain possibility if McCain or Obama is elected, we would dragged into another another Middle-east quicksand bog, with no defined mission and no way out, in other words, a situation just like Iraq.

The term "draft" has not been mentioned by either major candidate, obviously because it is the least popular idea since the income tax. However, with the U.S. military already fighting two wars in the Middle east already, there would be a profound need for more bodies if war was started with Iran.

Even if they do not mention directly, McCain and Obama have made their feelings about the draft known, although in very discreet ways. Only two days ago, Barack Obama outlined his plan, which would force high schoolers and college kids to perform mandatory "government service."

John McCain has not spoken out against Obama's plan for mass-conscription of American kids because he is in complete agreement with Obama's "call to service," requiring America's kids "to ease the burden on our troops."

We need to support a candidate who will focus on serious issues such as the energy crisis and massive government instead of militarizing the nation for more war. Bob Barr has observed that “The Founders displayed great genius when the framed the Constitution, because they limited the federal government to national problems while preserving state and local authority over such issues as education, including youth service [the draft].”

Americans are more than willing to volunteer to defend their country when it is threatened, but are hardly interested in fighting wars which have no point and purpose.

I voted for Mr. Huckabee on the AFA poll, but realistically, the best we can hope for is Mr. Pawlenty.


OHIO JOE

totustuus said...

i hate to say this but who is Palenty?Nobody here in Pa has a clue.
I never even heard of this man till a few days ago.
Still don't know who he is.
When a candidate doesn't have name/rep recognition it doesn't help.

totustuus said...

and thanks millions for the vote for Mike.Hope you can send the poll to a few friends you know would support Huckabee.We have a few days left anyway.
Mike has taken nearly every poll out there.Romney comes in second.
I've been watching 3 vp polls(including the AFA)and Mike has em all topped significantly.Typically Romney comes in 2nd.

totustuus said...

Bob Barr?Who is Bob Barr?
Why? McCain got the nomination.
I'm more concerned with who McCain picks for VP.

totustuus said...

the Ron Paul supporters are going overboard too.They want Ron Paul for a candidate.And now you folks want this Barr guy.Ppl are tearing the party apart.
This one goes this way and the other that way.Obama/Biden have one thing going for them.A unified party.
The Rep party is fracturing.
We won't win.

WHERE ALSO ARE OUR AMERICAN RELIGIOUS LEADERS ??


SENATOR OBAMA,THIS JUDICIAL INJUSTICE HAS BECOME AN AMERICAN ART FORM,AND NO LONGER CAN BE KEPT HIDDEN OR SECRET FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE !!!

WHEN AMERICANS WERE TOLD THE TRUTH BY THIS HONEST BLACK LEADER,WHO WENT ON TO BECOME A US PRESIDENT ???

LETS ALL HOPE OUR MEDIA FRIENDS CONTINUE TO SHOW AN INTEREST IN REPORTING ON THIS AMERICAN HORROR FACING THESE (TENS OF THOUSANDS) FORGOTTEN AND TRAPPED POORER AMERICANS, AND HOW THIS PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER HANDLES THIS VERY SERIOUS ISSUE FACING AMERICA?S LATINO AND BLACK AMERICAN COMMUNITIES ????

WITH 80% OF THE BLACK AMERICAN VOTERS SAYING THEY SUPPORT SENATOR OBAMA IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, IT IS ONLY FAIR FOR EVERYONE TO KNOW PRIOR BEING ELECTED OUR NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HOW THIS DEMOCRATIC SENATOR TRULY FEELS ABOUT THIS AMERICAN JUDICIAL INJUSTICE CONTINUING TO INFLICT GRAVE HARM ON THE BLACK & LATINO AMERICAN FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES NATIONWIDE ??????

*** WHEN GOD?S FACE BECAME VERY RED ***
THE US SUPREME COURT GAVE ENEMY COMBATANTS FEDERAL APPEAL HC RIGHTS LAWYERS AND PROPER ACCESS TO US FEDERAL COURTS,AND POORER AMERICANS (MANY EVEN ON DEATH ROW) ARE DENIED PROPER FEDERAL APPEAL LEGAL REPRESENTATION TO OUR US FEDERAL COURTS OF APPEAL, AND ROTTING IN AMERICAN PRISONS NATIONWIDE ?????????

**** INNOCENT AMERICANS ARE DENIED REAL HC RIGHTS WITH THEIR FEDERAL APPEALS !
THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE $LOWLY FINDING OUT HOW EA$Y IT I$ FOR MIDDLE CLA$$ AND WORKING POOR AMERICAN$ TO FALL VICTIM TO OUR U$ MONETARY JUDICIAL $Y$TEM.

****WHEN THE US INNOCENT WERE ABANDONED BY THE GUILTY ****
The prison experts have reported that there are 100,000 innocent Americans currently being falsely imprisoned along with the 2,300,000 total US prison population nationwide.
Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effectively closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves to regain their freedom through being granted new retrials.

This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated Black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal trial appeals.

This devious and deceptive judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges!!

Sadly, the true US *legal* Federal Appeal situation that occurs when any of our uneducated American prison inmates are forced to attempt to submit their own written Federal Appeals (from our prisons nationwide) without the assistance of proper legal counsel, is that they all are in reality being denied their legitimate rights for Habeas Corpus and will win any future Supreme Court Case concerning this injustice!

For our judicial system and our US Congressional Leaders Of The Free World to continue to pretend that this is a real and fair opportunity for our American Middle Class and Working Poor Citizens, only delays the very needed future change of Federal Financing of all these Federal appeals becoming a normal formula of Our American judicial system.

It was not so very long ago that Public Defenders became a Reality in this country.Prior that legal reality taking place, their were also some who thought giving anyone charged with a crime a free lawyer was a waste of taxpayers $$.

This FACADE and HORROR of our Federal Appeal proce$$ is not worthy of the Greatest Country In The World!

***GREAT SOCIETIES THAT DO NOT PROTECT EVEN THEIR INNOCENT, BECOME THE GUILTY!

I've looked through this blog in regards to the most fundamental right that I'm surprised that THIS site has overlooked; Rights of the Unborn. I searched this site up and down and nothing.
In simplest terms, how can we even begi concernings ourselves with other issues if we cannot recognize and support the rights of the unborn- ESPECIALLY AS CATHOLICS! The only candidate I see on the list who outright supports RTL is Palin and McCain.

In fairness to 'GOP Catholics' they are actually very Pro-Life when it comes to the Unborn. It is just that it have not been a priory lately, unfortunately.
