Ideological Litmus Test

0

I find the idea intriguing, but I just don’t see how it would work.

For starters, who would design such a test, and what guarantee would we have that it would be based on core American values when our own people can’t even agree on what those values are or ought to be?

Second, what’s to keep would-be immigrants from simply giving us the appropriate answers?  Even the ones who are either too dumb or too culturally isolated to figure it out themselves could be coached on how to answer.  And there are people both inside and outside this country who would be all too glad to help them defeat such a system.

Chuck and Nancy

I’d just like to say that I support President Trump 100% on border policy.  The Democrats have been the enemies of national security since the Clinton administration, and they stopped caring about America the day Trump was elected.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are authoritarian leftists who would sooner bring about the destruction of our nation (and blame it on Trump) than compromise their vision of America as a socialist dictatorship ruled by powerful Washington elites.

How did such people come to hold office in the first place, and why for the love of everything that is decent in this world do they keep getting voted back in?  Ignorance. Fear.  Deceit — everything they have accused President Trump of capitalizing upon, and probably a hell of a lot more than that.

“Accuse your enemies of that which you are guilty” is a line Pelosi, Schumer, and the entire Democratic establishment have truly taken to heart.

I’m not a Republican.  I wouldn’t even consider myself a conservative, and I frequently oppose President Trump on matters of policy.  Nevertheless, I have a tremendous amount of respect for President Trump, and I consider him the most valuable ally anyone could ask for in this cold war against the Regressive Left.

I Endorse This Endorsement

0

I will be voting for [candidate] because I am tired of American politics being dominated by a #duopoly that has strayed too far from the founding principles of our society.

I will be *enthusiastically* voting for [candidate] because I believe he represents these principles, and that if elected he will remain as accessible to the individual citizens of his district as he has throughout his campaign.

(TRUE FACT: The existence of the incumbent is not a media hoax.)

Make no mistake — [candidate] is not some radical third-party candidate looking to arbitrarily slash government spending and legalize everything short of murder.  On the contrary, Mr. [candidate] is out to make our government operate more efficiently so we can all breathe a little easier.

How does he plan to accomplish this?  Not with empty rhetoric, but by eliminating wasteful spending and redirecting the Federal Government’s focus to federal issues.

(Please refer to Porter4Us.com, particularly the sections marked ‘Fiscal Policy’ and ‘Government Reform’.)

Which is not to say that [candidate] is without a few radical views.  He is, for instance, in favor of Congressional term limits.  (Who will speak for our career politicians?!) 😱  Which is not nearly as startling as his belief that the Second Amendment remains in effect and somehow pertains to private gun ownership.  (Wait, what??) 😱😱

But perhaps most radical of all is Mr. [candidate]’s position on Donald Trump. Directly from his website (TRIGGER WARNING):

“I will neither blindly support or oppose President Trump… I would stand up to President Trump when appropriate and support him on issues we agree on.” 😱😱😱

I will be voting for [candidate] in the upcoming election and hope you will too — if you aren’t too triggered by his radical views.

FACEBOOK: What Supporting Kavanaugh Was Really About

0

All right, everyone — listen up, because an astonishing number of you don’t seem to understand the overwhelming support behind Brett Kavanaugh, or how the SCOTUS confirmation process even works.

The President can nominate whomever he damn well pleases, and it’s up to the Senate whether or not to confirm.  There isn’t an ideological litmus test, and it doesn’t matter how “mainstream” a nominee is, because the Supreme Court does not exist to represent YOUR interests OR mine.  The only “interests” it represents are those of the United States Constitution.   (Worth noting: Brett Kavanaugh is an utter caricature of Middle America.)

The only relevant concern is whether the nominee is capable of doing the job.

Think he lacks the experience to fill a seat?  Fine.  Think he doesn’t understand the Constitution, or how to properly apply it?  That’s fine too.  Have concerns about the candidate’s ethics, or do you otherwise question whether he can and will remain objective in his rulings?  Then certainly, Senator, you should vote ‘no’.

But please, all of you screaming your heads off about Roe v. Wade — shut the fuck up already.  You don’t actually believe Trump can be pressured into nominating someone who supports abortion; you’re just looking for an excuse to bitch about Trump.

If you had any serious concerns about Kavanaugh’s confirmation, you belonged taking them to your senator — not taking to the streets like savages or whining about it on social media.

(To anyone who contacted their senator’s office and THEN whined: 👍  But I hope they had the good sense to ignore you unless you actually had something constructive to say.)


Secondly:

I’m tired of all the mischaracterizations of Kavanaugh supporters, and of people reframing the issues around irrelevant topics instead of challenging our arguments directly.

This was NEVER about abortion — not for us.  It was never about politics — not for us — and if you think this was a right-wing movement, you’re living in an echo chamber.

Standing With Brett was never about wanting him confirmed.  It was never about the Patriot Act, or about Donald Trump, or the myth of male privilege, and we aren’t the ones seeking to politicize sexual assault.

Standing With Brett boiled down to three things:

(1) Upholding the integrity of the judicial nomination process.

(2) A reaffirmation of due process.

(3) A rejection of the #metoo movement and its underlying feminist ideology.

No matter where any one of us happens to stand politically, THESE were the three things we held in common.

Letter to Lindsey Graham

0

Dear Senator Graham:

I am neither a Republican nor a Conservative, and I disagree with you on a number of issues, including abortion.  But damn, do we need more guys like you in politics!  In truth, I would sooner see you in the White House than the Senate.

I was never particularly thrilled with Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, though I realized that we as a nation could do far worse.  Nevertheless, I and many others who felt the same have stood by him throughout these vicious, Neo-Stalinist attacks, and this point, I fear that failing to confirm Brett would present a crushing blow to the very framework of our society and the classical liberal values upon which it is based.  The Constitution is more than a piece of paper, and if it burns, so do we.

Brett Kavanaugh has become a symbol to all of us who are sick to death of being oppressed (yes, oppressed) by the Regressive Left and the Marxist-Feminists indoctrinating them on college campuses.  We are tired of their racism, their sexism, their caste system, and all the other forms of bigotry they have weaponized against us in their bid to seize power and convert America into the next soviet socialist republic.

That they scream the loudest, and that their screams are repackaged as “mainstream” by the left-wing media does not mean they speak for the majority of Americans.  Most of us are simply too intimidated to stand up to them for fear of losing our friends, our jobs, and our reputations.

Which is why it is imperative we find someone like you to represent us.

The only way to fight their evil ideas is to confront them with better ones.  Every inch you give in the name of “sensitivity” or “political correctness” is two more that they will take.  I was involved with radical feminism in my late teens, so I have seen firsthand where their agenda lies.  For a glimpse, you need look no further than Georgetown University’s Christine Fair.

Please keep fighting for Brett Kavanaugh, and please do not disregard my warnings about the Regressive Left.

Sincerely,

[me]

(a pro-choice atheist and disabled single mother who supports gay marriage)

I would just like to point out that supporting a Lindsey Graham presidential run would not be inconsistent with supporting abortion rights and gay marriage, as the President has zero Constitutional authority to overturn either.

Which is not to say that I would vote for Lindsey Graham while he remains complicit in the systematic persecution of doctors who treat pain.  Throw the abusers in prison for all I care (no, not really), but stay the fuck away from my healthcare.
