This how the Civil War came about. The South seceded, Abraham continued to force them to pay tariff, and they didn't stand for it, hence Fort Sumter. Not that we are in the mindset or are even able to start another Civil War...but I wouldn't put that past Obama just yet.
At this point, anything is possible.
Yes, unfortunately, anything IS possible.
I'm highly opinionated but... we're in trouble and the longer that B. Hussein Obama is in office the more trouble we're going to be in. If he has his way our country will cease to be a free nation.
I heard something on the radio a day or two ago to the effect of "Obama doesn't think our enemies are across the ocean, he thinks his enemies are the little old ladies sitting in their living rooms who don't think as liberally as he does". I found this to be interesting... and true.
I didn't know what you were talking about here at first. Dad explained it because he's more in-tune with political stuff that I am. Anyway, the point is that I agree with you on this.
Mom just mentioned something and it hit me that she is completely right.
You need to get into politics, climb the ladder and make a difference. You have the drive and the mouth to get stuff done... and you love to write bull shit... just like a politician would! I think this is a superb idea.
When you told me that you were involved with that politician down there I didn't think about it under that context but if he does allow you to become more involved, even work for him... keep this in mind?? Maybe it's not a good idea, maybe that isn't something you want to do but... I think it would work if you got the right connections and people to back you. Just thinking. I know I'm slow on the uptake sometimes.
Yes I know you're going to say age is a factor but that will be remedied sooner than later lol.
I didn't know what you were talking about here at first.
The Healthcare issue started back in the spring and the fight changes daily. This was in response to Harry Reid's latest tactic. And yes, this post also requires a basic understanding of the 10th Amendment as well as the rest of the Constitution.
Anyway, the point is that I agree with you on this.
Don't doubt me.
You need to get into politics, climb the ladder and make a difference.
Already miles ahead of you. I'm working local races this election cycle and am considering running for something in 2012.
I think this is a superb idea.
Me too. What do you think I should run for?
When you told me that you were involved with that politician down
That trail has gone cold. But I have other irons in the fire and doors may open again.
even work for him
I thought this was a done deal and it may still be a done deal. I just haven't heard anything in a while and really, this is still way early. The primary isn't until next June, so there's still a lot of time for fundraising.
I think it would work if you got the right connections and people to back you.
Yes. If I were going to run for something, it would have to be a small office methinks. And I would have to get a lot of the local big names to back me financially first, though if I'm waiting until 2012, there's a chance that I might have something to throw into the pot.
Yes I know you're going to say age is a factor
Only for seats that you have to be 35 or older to fill. I could run for State House, Mayor, City Council, County Commissioner, etc.
Constitution: Yes, after dad explained what he thought you were talking about I got the message Furbles...
Doubt: I don't "doubt" you however if I were to take you at complete face value without thinking for myself and so forth I would be no better than fuckers who put Obama into office...
Miles ahead: Really? I hadn't realized that you were planning along that line. Sorry.
Run for?: I actually have no idea. A small office to start then move up?? I don't know where you want to end up really so that kind of needs to play into your consideration.
Irons in the fire: Such as??
Trail gone cold: Sorry, I didn't know that.
Done deal: I told you not to count your chickens... but whatever that doesn't matter. :-) It will work out if it's meant to. :-)
Big names: Yes, but how are you going to get them to do that??
Age factor: Yeah I suppose. What office you go for is up to you. I do think that this would be a good direction for you to go in though. :-) Even if you're only supporting someone else.
Yes, after dad explained what he thought you were talking about I got the message Furbles
You need to click the links if you really want to understand what I'm talking about.Really? I hadn't realized that you were planning along that line.
I haven't planned per se
I've just seen an opportunity. But I don't know if it would be viable.I don't know where you want to end up
President of the United States.Such as??
Local races, Les' race
, and rubbing shoulders with the current powers that be.Yes, but how are you going to get them to do that??
See previous comment.I do think that this would be a good direction for you to go in though
Links: Tomas you keep assuming that when I am commenting you that I have the ability to click links! Stop being a dumb ass and look at my IP address. One address is my laptop, the other one (this one) is the dial-up desktop at mom and dads that does not have the capability to handle more than two things at a time. Which means I comment you either via LJ or my e-mail, and chat on Pidgin. That is it, anything more and it sends the computer into fits.
Opportunity: Yes it is viable. I would be curious to get my aunt and uncles opinions on this honestly. They are hugely into keeping track of politics and who is and isn't the one to back... they are both rather intelligent in a lot of ways. Live in CA for his job; which brings in 7 figures but no one is supposed to know that.
President: Are you serious or pulling my leg?? I'm not scoffing at your goal, I just want to know if you're joking or not.
Rubbing shoulders: Sounds like a plan. I just wanted you to spell it out for me. I hope you get what you want this time. You deserve it... you kind of work your butt off anymore.
Backing: Just because you are rubbing elbows with someone does not mean they will be willing to back you when the time comes.
Get a real computer like a Mac
and you won't have that problem. If you spend a little more money, you can even get high speed internet into your home. Oh, what joy that will bring to the world. (Or, yannow, not
Yes, I have always wanted to be President, but I'm not so sure that I could get enough people to vote for me.I hope you get what you want this time. You deserve it
As you know, I'm going to let some things that I want go because it just isn't going to work out. I need to blog about that soon.all you do is work your butt off
I've slacked off of income-based work for other things that I wished i was already getting paid for, but ce la vie
.ust because you are rubbing elbows with someone does not mean they will be willing to back you when the time comes.
Additionally, politics makes strange bedfellows.
Mac and Internet: We've been over this. We don't have money for a Mac, and the internet is not available until 2 years from now. End of story we have researched this, trust me. Get off this band wagon.
President: You could.
Paid jobs: Yups.
Bedfellows: Hmm... ooooooooooooook lol
