Real Racism - Where's the Outrage from the Left?

The political left loves to play the race card at every opportunity it sees to use racism against the right, even when no racism exists.  Yet it’s amazing how silent the left is about actual racism when it comes from one of its own.   

In the following video clip, abortionist Ron Virmani tells a pro-life group that the tax payers don’t want to pay for “those babies,” then he challenges the pro-lifers with this statement: “Let me see you adopt one of those ugly black babies…”

Yet the left says nothing.

The Medical Device Tax in Obamacare

One of the taxes contained in the more than 2,000 pages of the new health care law is a 2.3 percent excise tax on the sale of medical devices.  This tax, intended to help fund the new law, goes into effect in 2013, but its consequences are already starting to reveal themselves. 

Because of this looming tax, Cook Medical Inc., a Bloomington, Indiana based developer of medical devices, has decided to scrap its plans to open five new manufacturing plants.  The plants were to have opened around the Midwest, one each year for the next five years, and would have created around 300 jobs each.

So this tax that was intended to help fund Obamacare will cost Americans 1,500 new jobs, just within this one company.  And what about medical devices already being manufactured by Cook Medical and other medical device companies?  Who will cover the cost of this tax?  A pretty good guess is that the cost will be passed on to the consumer in the form of higher health care costs.

You may not like politics.  You may not like any of the candidates running for office.  You may feel that the two political parties are the same, so it doesn’t really matter.  Maybe you like to vote based on the candidate, not on the party.

If any of that sounds like you, you’re not alone.  Many people feel the same way.  However, the fact is that the only way Obamacare will be repealed is for Mitt Romney to be elected President and for Republicans to control both the House and the Senate.  If this does not happen, Obamacare will stand.  The medical device tax and other hidden, costly, job-killing taxes will stand.  

If this all sounds to you like a good idea, then you don’t need to do anything.  The bill is already law.  If, however, you feel that a bill of well over 2,000 pages that will drive up the cost of healthcare while destroying American jobs was not such a great idea, then you need to get involved at whatever level you feel comfortable. 

That might be just to make sure you are registered and that you vote for Mitt Romney and for Republican candidates for the Senate and the House of Representatives.  It might mean that you talk to others and explain to them what’s at stake.  It might mean that when the time comes, you set out yard signs or even volunteer to make telephone calls.  Whatever you’re comfortable doing… do it.  

Don't make the mistake of thinking that party doesn't matter.  Even if you've been a lifelong Democrat, please understand that in this situation, Republicans must be elected to the House, the Senate, and the White House.  That is the only way Obamacare will be repealed.

The Modern Democrat Party

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, the second highest ranking democrat in the House of Representatives, said yesterday that the best way to stimulate the economy is through food stamps and unemployment insurance: "If you talk to economists, they will tell you there are two things that are the most stimulative that you can do -- one’s unemployment insurance, the other’s food stamps, okay?”

Don’t think that this is Hoyer’s opinion only.  It’s the philosophy of the modern Democrat Party.
In October 2010, the highest ranking House democrat Nancy Pelosi expressed the same view of the best way to stimulate the economy: “It is the biggest bang for the buck when you do food stamps and unemployment insurance. The biggest bang for the buck.”

The modern Democrat Party is not the party John Kennedy.  This Democrat Party is the party of dependency.  It’s the party of control.  It’s the party of the destruction of what made the United States great.

Anyone who believes that people actually working for a paycheck is a better way to stimulate the economy than handing out food stamps and unemployment insurance needs to get involved and spread the word.  It’s not enough that President Obama is defeated in November; Democrats must be defeated in the House and Senate as well if we are to save for our kids and grandkids the greatness of our country.

Democrats' Ingenious Election Strategy

The Obama administration intends to shut down nine Border Patrol stations while a Texas law requiring voters to show photo IDs is being challenged in federal court.

I have to give the Democrats credit for an ingenious election strategy.  Fraudulent, but ingenious.

If This Doesn't Make Your Blood Boil... Nothing Will

It's every parent's worst nightmare: the news of a child killed in an automobile accident.  That's the the news that Loretta Robinson received about her son Justin.  But the nightmare didn't end there. 

Justin was killed by a drunk driver.  The drunk driver was Anna Gonzales, an ILLEGAL immigrant, driving without a driver's license. 

Gonzales got a 17-year prison sentence.  And what did Loretta Robinson get?  In addition to a lifetime of grief from having lost her son, Loretta Robinson received a towing bill to have her son's vehicle removed from the scene of the accident.  She also received a bill for the cost of cleaning her son's blood off the street!

What Loretta Robinson will almost certainly never get is any money from Gonzales.  She'll also never get her son back.  He was taken from her by a criminal who should not even have been in this country!
