Leave to Reason Foundation and libertarians to Point out hypocrisy of Conservative Republican when it come to limited government Shikha Dalmia has written a wonderful article, GOP’s border-control plan a recipe for bigger government, pointing out the hypocrisy.
“House Speaker John Boehner Thursday pulled the plug on his immigration reform “principles” after his fellow Republicans refused to go along.
One reason why the proposal received a cold reception was that the GOP’s self-appointed moral guardian Ann Coulter bandied surveys showing that immigrants will “wreck the country” with their Big Government-loving ways. “It’s not their [Republicans’] position on amnesty that immigrants don’t like,” she harrumphed. “It’s Republicans’ support for small government, gun rights, patriotism, the Constitution and capitalism.”
But if Republicans love liberty and small government, they sure have a weird way of showing it.”
The conservative republican position immigration and trade, how it violates the principals of individual liberty, capitalism, and limited government is why I left the Republican Party, reject any form of conservatism, the tea party and conservative media.
I have to agree with her; the conservatives in the party want to restrict all immigration because new citizens tend to lean democratic. The conservative in the republican like to dress restricting immigration in terms like securing the boarders first or reforming immigration while never saying how they will improve the legal immigration process. This bad policy has been going on since 1997 with an article in 1997 National Review Electing a New People. For once I wish a Republican get a back bone and stand up to the likes of Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh and tell don’t like it then go start your own little party we will bury you and be rid of the specter of the Know Noting party.
There is a buzz about Super Bowl 2014 ads and a bit of controversy is brewing about Intuit’s ad a contest and choosing of GodieBlox as winner of a 4 million dollar Super Bowl spot . GodieBlox is the maker of builder toys aimed at girls; it mission as the owner says is to shake-up the pink isle. The media is gushing over the as a counterpart to media male dominated ads and girl power. I feel like the little boy in the Emperor’s New Clothes. Is Goldieblox doing girls a favor by creating a separate toys for them but I need to go father and ask is even beneficial to shove STEM at girls who may chose a different path. Is it beneficial to make girls pawns of an ill thought out and ridiculous war on gender? Is it beneficial to tell girls pink is uncool. I would say no to each part because imposing so called gender neutrality is causing more harm than good and furthermore, what if a boy want to play with GoldieBlox kits or a girl want a pink Hello Kitty are we going to say no?
Ok I know I am late to the table because of Holiday events.
One must be stuck on a Ship in Antarctica not to hear the recent blow up between the Robertson Family and A & E and how it ends by A &E backing down is a testament to the free market system, still I feel the show is doomed; the Robertson family leaning firsthand the hazards of a too close business relationship with the world and for A & E the problem of jumping the gun too soon.
Still I found Phil Robertson’s comments troubling because of misquoting scripture and typical American Evangelical doctrinal errors.
Happy new year
I usually make no resolutions but this year I resolve not to give any money or time to Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or any third party.
I will not swear allegiance to conservatism, liberalism, (because I can tell the difference), libertarianism (they had their chance), or any left wing political ideology.
I will not support either the bus project nor tea party.
I can not in good will support any organization that doe not 100% support the ideas of individual, liberty, capitalism for the lowly Mexican immigrant to the richest person.
I have to confess something snapped in 2012, I became tired of my conservative wing action resulting of the Obama victory over Republican party. I have re registered as an independent; 2014 is a major election year and I will not be involved any political campaigns this year.
