I have watched all of the Republican debates and watched Candidates flip-flop, change their strategies, and verbally attack each other. And now we have the Cain Issue. WHAT A ZOO. How has it come to this? Where are the grownups in our Nation? The American public no longer appears to really care about the important things in life, or is it the Media? They feed us with garbage. The saying is, “garbage in - garbage out!”

I have pondered many subjects to offer “food for thought” and the grocery store is empty.

We have an inept leader, using our tax dollars to push a failed agenda to save the economy create jobs, and the worst insult is how our hard earned tax dollars are being wasted on programs that should be eliminated. While the American public is suffering (or those who are just riding the “unemployment money train”) the current incumbent is campaigning for his re-election and pushing for another Stimulus on our tax dollars. Now he is managing America with Executive Orders. Unbelievable!

How about that VP we have. Joe “foot in mouth” Biden has now indicated that he is healthy and thinking of running in 2016! WHAT? Are these two individuals living in such a bubble that they actually think the American public wants four more years of this type of leadership? These two individuals are not part of the best and brightest in our political system nor our Nation they are NOT Leaders.

Mr O has changed changed the direction of this country to the point that even the Founders of our Nation would not recognize it. Especially as to how the Constitution is being twisted and suing States over their rights. A sound leader does not need 30 plus Czar’s, 100 advisors, etc. They just need to be intelligent, have a logical thought process, ability to read and understand our Constitution, and let Congress do their job based on the will of the people. The leader of the greatest Nation does not need to campaign for 4 years while his “gang” of whomever runs this country. What a shame that the American public voted in a Dictator to run this country rather than a Leader. This man is NOT a leader and only serves as a front for the Democratic Party. Look around, do you see any other Democrats within their party who stand out with sound ideas and leadership ability?

I believe that the majority of the American public is beginning to realize that the America has a BIG problem. We have lost our way and we are in decline - like the Russians after their defeat in Afghanistan. How did we get here? The change has been slow in coming. It started in the 1960’s and really began to speed up when Bill Clinton was elected. He was part of the hippie generation, has no morals, and is a confirmed liar. He brought disgrace to the Office of the Presidency and the younger generation at that time felt that his type of behavior is acceptable. “If it is OK for the POTUS why not us”? Voters through the years became complacent, not involved in the political process, enjoyed the easy Wall Street money, did not elect solid Conservative Representatives and Senators and were not interested in what Congress did after being elected. Now the Conservatives/Republicans have a candidate that is questionable. Only time will play this one out. I am hoping IF Mr Cain is guilty of the alleged charges that he does the right thing and bow out. With all the problems we have, we do not need this diversion. We need a candidate with substance, leadership ability, working knowledge of how the Government SHOULD function, and follow the Constitution.

Now is time for ALL to become involved in the process, because if this Nation is to survive, it is imperative that we elect a majority of Conservatives that include Republicans, Independents, Tea Party candidates in both Houses of Congress, and a Conservative Republican President! We must unite behind the Republican Party to prevent a third party coming into play (the Democrats would love that one). So it is up to each individual to become involved, volunteer to help with phone banks for your candidate to help spread their agenda to others. Review each candidates’ agenda and ideas to put America back together. Support your local candidates and national candidates. Maybe, just maybe we can turn this country around. A country whose citizens have high morals will succeed. A country without morals will die.
