Jeb Bush— the only Bush that will ever be a good president

AND HE IS REPUBLICAN

AND I STILL CONSIDER MYSELF A DEMOCRAT

He may be a Republican, but he’s just as Progressive as Obama or Clinton. Two sides to the same government control coin.

And Rand Paul isn’t all that much better either.

On the Cliven Bundy issue…

When I first heard of this issue, I was staunchly for the Bundys and their cause. The more I’ve looked into the matter though, the more I’ve come to distance myself from them and some of their supporters. I am definitely not on the feds side, but I can no longer stand with the Bundys. Here’s a breakdown:

Feds:

  • They have used excessive force for something that should have been litigated in court. I’m sorry, you DO NOT point a gun at somebody who poses no threat to your life and who’s only crime is owing money. The seizure of the Bundy’s property, the cattle, was excessive and shows the length a bloated government will go to send a message. When the Bundys lose the court decision over whether or not they have to pay grazing fees then you put a lien on their property, not point a gun at their heads. Period.

The Bundys:

  • Cliven Bundy’s alleged racist remarks notwithstanding, the sentiment behind his civil disobedience seems sound. The federal government wields too much power of the daily lives of it’s citizens and needs to be reigned in. That said, the land he is disputing has never been state land and has been in federal stewardship since 1848. That’s before Nevada was even a state. If you wish to change that, you do not refuse to pay grazing fees (a practice dating back to before there was even a United States) and continue to graze your cattle on land that is not yours. You can make the claim that the land is public and thus gives you the right to do what you wish on it, but then what of the next guy? He has just as much right to do what he wishes with the land as you do. Add on top of that those who rallied around him who are publicly looking for way to start a war, you end up with a dangerous mix that will end in tragedy.

Bottom line: I will always stand for small, limited government and the Constitution. I will stand with those that wish to get the federal government out of our daily lives, including owning land. But I will not stand with those who look to subvert the rule of law without going through their legislative process. This is not 1770 where we have no representation and have no outlet to litigate grievances.

The pen comes before the sword. There is a time and place for everything, but this is not it.

Scene’s from today’s ‘Give America a Raise’ Bus Tour stop in Albuquerque, NM!

One hell of a turnout.

Not everybody is this stupid… and they’re probably at work instead of arbitrarily arguing for a false measure that will only give them temporary gains at best.

Stone Cold Steve Austin on gay marriage:

"I’ve got some damn good friends that are gay. I’m absolutely for same sex marriage.
I don’t think that there is a god that says you cannot do this, you cannot do that. If two cats can’t get married, but then a guy can go murder 14 people, molest 5 kids, then go to prison and accept god, he’s going to let him into heaven. After the fact that he did all that s**t? See, that’s all horse s**t to me, that don’t jive with me.”


There is why I love Stone Cold!!


But then we have government in the way mandating what is and is not marriage like some English lord in 14th century Scotland.
