Saw the Film, 2016: Obama's America

Saw 2016: Obama's America film yesterday. Theater was 90% full, cars parked on the grass, lot was over-flowing, lines queued up for the next showing. The film was showing in 2/3 LESS theaters nationwide than other movies, and still placed at #4 for Saturday sales. All ages represented at our theater, not just TEA Party Patriots, or as the left would posit, it was all tea baggers in attendance.

Yep, when no rational arguments work, resort to vile Ad Hominem attacks...

I've had the uncomfortable task of explaining the "tea bagger" label much more often than I'd wish on anyone. Can you imagine explaining what a tea bagger behavior entails to a couple in their 60s, 70s, 80s... who have worked hard, paid taxes, employed people, served their country in war-time and in peace and raised a family?

Try it. Try explaining what has happened to our great Nation... that patriotic Americans are attacked in such a manner. For love of country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back to the film...

The case for what a 2016 Obama's America might look like was made using sound-bites in Obama's own words, as well as Pelosi (derisive laughter and hisses from the audience at her statement that we, "have to pass it to find out what's in it").

Generations will look back upon us as less than ignorant.

The film is chilling... even if you're an informed citizen, and it's not an anti-Obama film. It's fact, based upon Obama's own words and testimony for what his plan is for our great REPUBLIC.

We are NOT a democracy, thank God.

The film, 2016: Obama's America, postulates that while Obama is an American citizen, his life experiences are not in line with those of most Americans. I wrote a blog post to that effect, June 23, 2010, and I am among millions who have stated the same belief, a conclusion based upon Obama's statements and actions. From 2010:

"But the president spent the most formative years of his childhood in the company of communists, invited into his home as beloved family members. He lived in a communist nation, Indonesia, still home to the largest muslim population in the world. His values do not align with those of most Americans; his cultural identity is not that of an American."

I highly recommend seeing this film... and taking two or three friends with you.

Romney and Ryan Channel Reagan

Oh. My. Goodness. I paraphrase from the Ryan and Romney (Rescue and Recovery) homecoming rally in Waukesha, Wisconsin:

Paul Ryan: "Courage was on the ballot June 5th. And Courage won. We in Wisconsin saved Wisconsin on that day, and on November 6th, we will help save America.”

“This is the only country founded on an idea — that idea in a nutshell is in the Declaration of Independence. Our rights come from nature and God — not from government.”

Mitt Romney: "We are not going to transform this country into something we don't recognize. We are going to renew the principles America was founded on, Life, Liberty... We are going to once again be the Shining City on a Hill."

And in a powerful follow-up to a heckler and directed at Obama, "Mr President, take your campaign out of the gutter, let's talk about the real issues America faces."

Oh my. It can truly be Morning in America again. All is not lost. I have had the chance to know many Mormons over the almost-three decades I've spent as a Marine spouse and Mormons are some of the most principled, moral, and patriotic people of character I've ever had the privilege to know.

Romney was not my first choice; his selection of Paul Ryan cements my faith in his judgment.

Because Paul Ryan is a true believer. A Constitutionalist, he believes in the evil (/sarc) TEA Party and Founding Principles of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.

Paul Ryan has been elected with an overwhelming majority for seven terms even though his district is hugely democratic. Because he treats citizens as adults, defines and describes the problems and offers solutions that work.

He does NOT push grandma off the cliff. Ryan's medicare/medicaid proposal cuts LESS from those two programs than obamacare. And Ryan's budget offers Americans CHOICE, not a government mandate implemented by backroom deals and enforced through public intimidation of a CO-EQUAL branch of government.

I planned to work unceasingly to insure our Nation returns to its founding principles. Regardless of our nominee.

If you can't already tell, and to co-opt the leftist slogan, much as we've co-opted Rules for Radicals, I am "Fired up. Ready to go!"

Only 85 days, four hours til election day when it will be Morning in America once again.

Georgia lumberyard owner hammers Obama on 'You didn't build that'

Just called to thank this gentleman for making my day with his sign. Thought I'd speak with the operator or leave a message...

But Gaster Lumber & Hardware owner Ray Gaster answers his own phone! Mr. Gaster reports that support is running 99.9% in favor of his sign and sentiments.
