What The Republicans Say And What The Republicans Do

Donald Trump, who seems to have begun a campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in order to get people to pay more attention to him, claims to have fired his top strategist, Roger Stone, because Stone “wanted to use campaign for his own publicity”.

In similar news, Rick Santorum, who told the audience during the first of two Fox News GOP presidential debates on Thursday that, “I know we have a president who wants to do whatever he wants to do, and take his pen and his phone and just tell everybody what he thinks is best, but the reason America is a great country, the reason is because our compassion is in our laws, and when we live by those laws and we treat everybody equally under the law, that’s when people feel good about being Americans, and I put forth an immigration policy that is as strong in favor of the folks who are struggling in America the most than anybody else,” accused the Fox News moderators of the debate of being “a little long winded and a little convoluted”.

Also in GOP campaign news, Carly Fiorina responded to the controversy over Donald Trump’s habit of making extremely insulting attacks against practically everyone he encounters by saying that she would be a better presidential nominee than Trump because, “We need a nominee who is going to throw every punch, not pull punches.”

Aides to the Jim Gilmore for President campaign were unable to confirm whether their candidate, after declaring that “We have to be prepared to defend the American people, prepare them for a long war,” has been briefed about the fact that the current year is 2015, not 2001.

Senator Lindsey Graham, around whom rumors have swirled that he may soon run for President ever since he declared that he is running for President, explained his policy on energy, saying, “When it comes to fossil fuels, we’re going to find more here and use less.” Apparently, Graham’s plan is to take the additional fossil fuels that will be found under his initiatives, and put them all in a gigantic vat alongside the Potomac River with a big sign on it, reading “Not For Burning”.

    Donald Trump seems to have publicly exposed his childish behavior in a repulsive way. Although he has some good ideas and could contribute greatly something other than his money, he seems determined to be only a mouthy, insulting, little boy who yells and shouts to get his way. If only there were a statesman, a person who recognizes that others who have the knowledge of how to govern and are willing to help him, then he could go forward with his ideas and achieve some good. His blatant disrespect for others will begin to bring that same disrespect back to himself. The American voting public are not the rough, and hardcore, backstreet alley cat types, that he apparently has the misfortune of dealing with in his normal life. Trump, take some lessons in public speaking before you try to speak in public again. Do you support the government spending the taxes that are paid by American workers for their Social Security in old age? Do you support the banning of Congress moving any of that money to a General Fund? Or in any way using it for government credit purposes? Are you for the Government using the tax income not associated with Social Security to service the debt interest and preventing any expenditure that exceeds that mandate? Do you support the banning of the Government borrowing any more money? Do you support the Government becoming responsible in its business dealings with other countries and within the U.S.? We have a child in office now, we do not want or need another one!

    To be more civilized, this is another point only concerning mostly Bernie Sanders. Once again “Black Lives Matter” have stepped into the time of a candidate and taken the microphone away to spout their rhetoric. Where are the security officers that at one time protected presidential candidates? Why is this being allowed? If they want to have a rally, let them organize it for themselves. These people need to be arrested for forcibly interrupting an organized event. I don’t care who the candidate is, or what the event is, that disrespect makes the individuals involved of less ‘matter’ to me.

    It’s like playing musical chairs on the Titanic. What’s the point? They can’t do anything about the predicament we’re in – the one that’s about to overwhelm humanity and all the other species we rely on to survive. They too will go down with the rest of it all. Without habitat, we cannot exist. Industrial civilization is destroying our habitat.

    Back to JEB, even The Donald indicated his preference for JEB after saying he would not support just anyone on the stage. But since the Congress has “borrowed” from the Social Security Fund until they are not able to repay it, since they have leveraged the future of it to borrow from China, (what is it now, $1 million a minute?) that is where our future is and it ain’t gonna be long. What is so bad is that those in society that believe “what we want is ___ to give to us” can go on forever. It isn’t only industry, even the EPA is dumping in the river. Kind of reminds of the statement that the waters will be turned to wormwood (poison). Land and water are going down as well.
