Thoughts on the 2012 GOP Convention
9/1/2012, 11:47 a.m.
I would like to offer some ordinary American commentary regarding this past Republican National Convention which crowned the next in turn for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination for P.O.T.U.S. Willard "The Mitt" Romney.
In the interest of open disclosure I must acknowledge I am a CONSERVATIVE and I was an active Republican, a member of the Georgia Republican State Executive Committee serving as one of the vice-chairman and a candidate for public office on the Republican primary ballot.
With that being said I believe it is within my ability to offer a perspective about the 2012 GOP National Convention. My comment is to first condemn the media and talking heads who have failed the public or who just don't know a "damn lie or don't care the damn liar is lying" when speaking about the P.O.T.U.S. Barack Obama.
Many have stated in the media P.O.T.U.S Barack Obama is a failure. It has been said our president has caused our country to increase its debt, has stole $ 750 Billion from Medicare. His policies have caused unemployment to continue around 8 percent and the lies cover perhaps any issue one can think of.
Now, I do not expect many of the GOP of today to respect anything President Obama has attempted to accomplish or has accomplished. As was the goal of some in the GOP "do not support anything President Obama wants to do to move America Forward." That is the number one goal according the Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
During this GOP Convention lies and just damn lies were stated by many who spoke nationally at the convention. Now it would take to much time to outline all of the lies so I will not attempt to repeat the lies. However, what I will do is present some basic comments for thought for those who possess the mental capacity not to be bias as many who spoke at the RNC Convention were.
What is the GOP presenting to the American public as their plan for America? Remember, the basic theme of the GOP is tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations, cuts in social programs, cuts in education, and there is even conversation by republicans of eliminating the deduction of interest paid by home owners.
The GOP speakers failed to acknowledge the reason why we lost over a million jobs per month during the 8 years of the Bush presidency was because corporate executive made the decision to take jobs from manufacturing to call centers to places outside of the USA. This decision by many corporate executives increased the profit of their companies but also increased the unemployment of Americans.
You only need to look at the made in label of any of the products you have purchased or ask the person answering your phone call when you dial an 800 number for an American corporation if he or she are located within the U.S.
The speakers at the 2012 GOP convention swore if they win the presidency and win both the US House and Senate they would repeal the Affordable Health Care Act. Think about it? The GOP is publicly stating their goal is to eliminate the ability for readers like you and me to have access to health care at a cost we can afford, to have insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions and a number of other positive benefits.
