Among the lies about himself Obama consistently repeats

30 Jan

Among the lies about himself Obama consistently repeats is that he was a constitutional law professor. 

Lie one:  Obama was never a professor; he was a lecturer.  He did not have the qualifications to be a professor.  Obama nev…

Gary Johnson on fundly

27 Jan

Dear Friends of Gary Johnson,

Help Gary Johnson with crowd funding on Fundly. Click Here

 

Gary Johnson 2016 has set up a Fundly account to take advantage of crowd funding. We hope that you will sign up to be a Supporter and a Donor.
 
With polls showing a record number of Americans today rejecting the two “major” parties and their presidential candidates, 2016 presents an historic opportunity to bring new voters and activists into the liberty movement — and to achieve unprecedented success in elections at all levels.
 
As a successful two-term Governor and a frequent spokesperson for liberty in the national media, Gary Johnson is in great demand as a speaker for events all across the country, but travel costs are significant, and insuring that Governor Johnson can appear at those events and build the libertarian movement requires funding.
 
Donations from this Fundly campaign will be used solely to defray travel and event costs for Gov. Johnson, making it possible for him to promote the liberty agenda at State Libertarian conventions and other events across the nation. Helping to put him on the stage and in front of thousands of potential liberty supporters is a great investment — and that is precisely what these dollars will do.
 
Help build the liberty movement with your support. Click on this link to become a Supporter and a Donor for Gary. Click Here
 
Thank You!

Gary Johnson was the Republican Governor of New Mexico from 1994-2003. A successful businessman before running for Governor of New Mexico in 1994, Gary Johnson started a door-to-door handyman business to help pay his way through college. Twenty years later, he had grown that business into one of the largest construction companies in New Mexico, with more than 1,000 employees. Johnson is best known for his veto record, having vetoed more than 750 bills during his time in office — more than all other governors combined. His use of the veto pen earned him the nickname “Governor Veto.” Term-limited, Johnson retired from public office in 2003. An avid skier, adventurer, and bicyclist, he has summited the highest peak on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest.  In the 2012 presidential election, Johnson placed third and garnered more votes than any other Libertarian candidate in history.  He has two grown children, a daughter Seah and a son Erik, and currently resides in a house he built himself in Taos, New Mexico.

Tuesday’s campaign 2016 reading

Duck!

26 Jan
A federal bureaucrat went duck hunting for the first time in Texas. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer’s field on the other side of the fence.
As the bureaucrat climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing.
The bureaucrat responded, “I shot a duck, it fell into this field, and now I’m going to retrieve it.”
The old farmer replied, “This is my property and you are not coming over here.”
The indignant bureaucrat said, “I am one of the highest level EPA administrators in the U.S. and if you don’t let me get that duck, I’ll sue you and take everything you own.”
The old farmer smiled and said, “Apparently, you don’t know how we do things in Texas. We settle small disagreements like this with the Texas Three-Kick Rule.”
The bureaucrat asked, “What is the Texas Three-Kick Rule?”
The Farmer replied, “Well, first I kick you three times and then you kick me three times, and so on, back and forth, until someone gives up.”
The bureaucrat quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.
The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the city feller. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy work boot into the bureaucrat’s groin and dropped him to his knees.
His second kick nearly wiped the man’s nose off his face. The bureaucrat was flat on his belly when the farmer’s third kick to a kidney nearly caused him to give up.
The bureaucrat summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet and said, “Okay, you old coot! Now, it’s my turn!”
The old farmer smiled and said, “No, I give up. You can have the duck.”

Senator Paul on the SOTU

25 Jan
 
 
“I’m sorry.” 
 
That would have been the most fitting start for President Obama’s last State of the Union address tonight.
 
Sorry for what he’s done to our national debt.  Sorry for what he’s done to American healthcare for his failing ObamaCare scheme.  Sorry for his ham-handed foreign policy, which has left America less safe.  Sorry for hampering jobgrowth with higher taxes and draconian regulations, which cost our economy $2 TRILLION a year.
 
Bruce, I recorded a brief video in response to President Obama’s address.
 
 
 
Bruce, of course, if we’re honest with ourselves, some members of my own Republican Party have had a big hand in allowing these failures to continue.  Some running for President now are even pledging to continue parts of the Obama agenda.
 
We can’t afford this.
 
We need a President who will balance the federal budget.
 
We need a President who will fight to uphold the entire Bill of Rights, including the Fourth Amendment.
 
We need a President who will fight for term limits for Congress.
 
We need a President who will repeal the entire tax code and replace it with a fair and flat tax for all Americans.
 
We need a President who will keep our country out of nation-building while ensuring America remains strong, safe and secure.
 
We need to Audit the Fed, defend our border and appoint judges who will roll back years of terrible decisions.
 
This is why I’m running for the President and why I’m taking my message of liberty to Iowa and New Hampshire this week.  
 
And ithe media is doing whatever they can to black me out despite my campaign’s jaw-dropping grassroots strength. Don’t let them get away with it.
 
Please make your most generous contribution during this most critical time.
 
 
And don’t forget to send this email to at least three of your friends right away!
 
In liberty,
Rand Paul

Governor Johnson on the SOTU

25 Jan
Friends,

Tuesday night, President Obama tried to deliver an “optimistic” State of the Union Address. That’s OK. There is nothing wrong with optimism. I, too, am an optimist.

But throughout Obama’s speech, he based his soaring rhetoric about everything from curing cancer to highly questionable improvement in the economy on things government has done — or will do.

I have a real problem with that.

In 2012, some national publications compared the “job creation” records of several former governors who were running for President, and my record in New Mexico was deemed to be the best. My response raised some eyebrows: I said, “As Governor, I didn’t create a single job.”

It’s true. Government doesn’t create jobs. The private sector does, and government’s job is to stay out of the way and create an environment in which entrepreneurs and other employers can prosper without unnecessary regulation, taxes and interference. That’s what we tried to do in New Mexico…and it worked.

But today, it’s difficult to find anything the federal government has done over the past several years that has made anything better. Obama talked about medical advancements. If anything, his government take-over of health care and the taxes it created have stifled advancement — and will continue to do so for years to come.

The President accused anyone saying the economy is in decline of “peddling fiction”, while the national debt has doubled under his watch — and will reach $20 trillion by the time he leaves office. No economy can sustain that debt, and the Republicans and Democrats alike have done nothing to reduce it.

And when it comes to keeping us safe from those who would do us harm, despite the President’s reassuring words, who can honestly say the we are safer from violent extremists and foreign threats than we were before Presidents Bush and Obama waged war and failed interventions?

It’s time for someone to tell the truth about the challenges we face. That’s why I’m running for President — and doing my best to put liberty, smaller government and common sense foreign policy on the national stage as alternatives to the tired policies of the “major” parties.

The response so far to my announcement last week is tremendous. The national media took note, liberty advocates across the country are energized, and our phones are ringing off the hook. But to take advantage of a great kick-off, I must have your help.

Travel for media appearances and events, promoting what we’re doing on social media, even being able to keep up with the phone calls. These ALL require funding, and for that, I must rely upon supporters such as you. Please go to Gary Johnson 2016 today and help make sure we have the funding we must have to build on a fantastic start.

Your support means a great deal to me, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks!

Gov. Gary Johnson
