    This excerpt from Jeffrey Lord’s piece ——Why Ryan Terrifies the Left —— hits at the heart of Democrat party strategy even today:

    Why Ryan Terrifies the Left

    The American Spectator : Why Ryan Terrifies the Left

    NOTE: Knowing he had no governing experience, Hussein thought he could fool the country into accepting him as their moral leader. My belief is that he truly thinks Americans have a spiritual longing for Islam, and he’s just the guy to lead them there.

    Socialists have no claim to moral superiority on any level of society; less so in this election than in Ronald Reagan’s two presidential campaigns. So what’s the problem? Romney-Ryan should breeze on in. I believe they will win, but it won’t be a breeze, and it won’t be a permanent victory for one reason: MODERATES.

    This excerpt from a piece by Daniel Greenfield identifies the problem:


    The Moderate Paradox

    The Moderate Paradox

    I would say that Greenfield is talking about moderate Americans not just moderate Republicans. I often phrase it this way: “Under our system of government anarchy is one extreme. Totalitarian government is the other extreme. Limited government is the permanent center. It never moves.”

    If you doubt me, check the center Truman left behind, then Carter, then JFK, then LBJ, then Clinton, and the center Hussein will leave behind him. Those centers show a relentless march to the Left. Ronald Reagan was the only president who managed to move the center a step or two closer to limited government since Woodrow Wilson. Reagan’s gains, and then some, were wiped out by Hussein & Company.

    Romney-Ryan have their work out for them even with help from Tea Partiers. Republicans will vote Republican, Democrats will vote Democrat, and moderates will do what moderates always do because they delude themselves into believing they are not moving away from limited government whenever they unwittingly help Democrats establish a new center. The hope in the Romney-Ryan camp is that all of the economic blah, blah, blah, will convince moderates that defeating Hussein is a matter of self-interest if not philosophy.

    The real question is: How can Romney-Ryan demolish the moving center once and for all? There is but one answer: Repeal the XVI Amendment. That is the philosophical argument the Left cannot defend or win. The XVI Amendment funds socialism. Without tax dollars there is no socialism. The XVI Amendment is the one and only reason the Left will never be stopped. So long as Socialists feed on income taxes the center will move Left. Socialist parasites might be slowed down, or stopped, for a time but never defeated.

    Romney-Ryan putting this campaign on a philosophical track running parallel to economics is the right way to go even if they stop short of calling for the Income Tax Amendment’s repeal. That’s where tea Parties can help. Between Tea Parties and Romney-Ryan Hussein will have to defend the XVI Amendment rather than just saying “Tax the rich.” as though nobody else’s income is confiscated.

    Never forget that the income tax takes from everybody’s irrespective of the tax rate. In other words show the income tax for what it is. Tea Parties can go after the XVI Amendment at the same time Romney-Ryan make Hussein defend the Left’s claim to moral superiority in realistic terms rather than simply mouthing touchy-feely platitudes without providing viable applications as he did in 2008. I guarantee everything Hussein says about economics will depend upon the XVI Amendment rather than taxing the rich.

    I’ll close with a few words about the Affordable Care Act.

    Romney-Ryan should expose Nancy Pelosi’s comments for what they are:


    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJKGWEkkE7E&feature=player_detailpage]Pelosi: Obamacare Will Supply 400,000 Jobs Almost Immediately! - YouTube[/ame]

    First off, “. . . create four million jobs, four hundred thousand jobs almost immediately. . .” means it will go a helluva lot higher. A conservative guesstimate would be eight million by 2016. I base my number on every welfare state program ever implemented. LBJ’s losing war on poverty cost trillions of dollars more than first stated because of the welfare state programs that were implemented to fight the war. Every one of those programs cost many times the amount given when they were initiated.

    Most Americans already know the cost of Hillarycare II will balloon out of sight after it is fully implemented. The numbers are already going up as is the number of uninsured Americans the ACA promised to eliminate entirely.

    My point: Romney-Ryan should not limit talk about the ACA by relying on repeal. Ask ALL private sector Americans this question: Do you want to fund at least eight million more tax dollar jobs? Make no mistake about this. People who are paid tax dollars have government jobs.

    Romney-Ryan might also point out that eight million more people will suddenly have lifetime tenure at the public trough and everything that comes with it; little or no labor worth mentioning for many, job security, pensions, health benefits far better than private sector Americans will ever see, and so on.

    Chuck Ross’ article contains a lot of economic data and how it will affect individuals and businesses. This excerpt appears innocuous because Americans are familiar with the IRS; whereas, the millions of government jobs Hillarycare II will “create” are yet to come:

    Obamacare could bring 'IRS to its knees'
    Massive bureaucracy demanded for enforcement

    Obamacare could bring ‘IRS to its knees’

    Those IRS enforcers will hold more power in their hands than the eight million parasites I cited in the OP. And just as Pelosi’s four million will top out at least twice as high, those 5,000 to 16,000 IRS jobs will come in much higher.

    I was born in 1934; so the stuff parasites posing as Democrats are doing to this country will not affect me very much, but it will destroy future generations. My feelings on the Affordable Care Act are similar to the feelings of environmentalists. The difference is: Environmentalists claim they are saving the planet for all time, while I only want to save freedoms for the next few generations. There will always be variations of today’s Socialists/Communists saving one thing or another. Saving a freedom or two for the next few generations is the best I can shoot for.

    My point: Environmentalists are lying hypocrites full of crap because they cannot do a thing about Mother Nature, while concerned individuals can do something about preserving individual liberties for a while. If Hillarycare II is not repealed entirely the people who administer that liberty-killing law will abolish more personal freedoms than will all of the environmental crap combined. Young Americans should keep that in mind on election day after months of lies and spin coming from Hussein & Company.
