The harvest is past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved (Jer. 8: 20)

Mitt Romney is the John Kerry of the Republican party. My good friend “B” came up with that one. Its why I can’t get excited about the guy. Just as Democrats could not feel any excitement about John Kerry, and just as all voters could not trust his constant flip flopping….so do we feel about Romney. And a lot of us feel disenfranchised by the process. We feel as if a political cabal is essentially ramming this candidate down our throats.

I love how recently Rush Limbaugh and other conservative pundits had announced the recent video of Ron Paul‘s campaign, describing Romney as a flip flopper. I thought it funny, because I had known about it for months. All I am is a fourth rate blogger with 500 views, and I’d known about this video for months.Here it is:

Ron Paul ad- “Washington Machine” Mitt Romney flip flop

Also this one: Ron Paul-Mitt Romney flip flopper (whatever it takes)

The other day, I was in my car, driving to a store and listening to the local FOX affiliate radio station. Neal Boortz was talking with Jamie Dupree. Don’t get me wrong…I respect the heck out of both of these guys. But Boortz was asking Jamie if he had heard of a poll that showed that Ron Paul could win an election between RP and Barack Obama. Jamie said he’d never heard of such a poll. I went home that night, googled it….and it was the first thing to show up at the top of the page! Again….fourth rate blogger can find it….why can’t they….?

I’m afraid this post is going to be a little disjointed. I’m watching my kid, and that means I’ll get about two paragraphs typed, and then be interrupted by him (though he’s well the heck worth it. Jesus, my wife, and my kid are about the only things that make my life worth one thin dime….). My wife is working right now. I have to work 50 to seventy hours a week, and she works part time, 15-30 hours a week, just so we can maintain some minimal degree of comfort. The poor woman works her fingers to the bone to help out her husband and son. She deserves to be sitting at home watching soap operas and eating bon bons. Instead, she works herself half to death and watches our boy most of the time. This is one reason why I wish Ron Paul could be elected. I see little hope of our lives getting any better, I see little hope of her getting the life she deserves, if he isn’t.

There’s about twenty things I’d love to talk about, but I think I’ll just deal with a few things. I’ve been trying to do more reading of other blogs…trying to learn the trade, so to speak. And those who follow me….well, I like to return the favor as best I can. That’s how the American system works. Trade of money, trade of ideas.

Ok…so…random element one. The liberty scientist blog at wordpress.com brought this to my attention. It is a virtual map that shows the growing dependence on government throughout the nation. I’m going to put a link to it. If it doesn’t work….go to liberty science. You might want to go there any way. They’ve got some fascinating information that relates to both politics and science.

Second random thought. I was checking out uneditedpolitics.wordpress.com. He’s gotten a tons of videos (and gosh, I truly wish I had the time to watch all of them….I think this guy is better source for news than CNN, Fox, MSNBC, NPR, and Rush Limbaugh all combined), but there are two that I’d like to highlight.

Senator Sessions Questions Secretary of Defense Panetta

The general in the background sure looks sinister to me….More importantly, this dangerous policy of ceding our sovereignty over to NATO, or worse, the UN, is a policy that has been followed by both Republican and Democrat Presidents.

Last random point. Another video from Uneditedpolitics.

Ron Paul Speech in 1987 as Presidential Candidate for the Libertarian Party-9/1/87.

I think its telling that he starts his speech by acknowledging his family. That is what this whole thing is all about.

You may be wondering why my title is that particular scripture verse. I don’t know that our time is up, but I think the razor’s edge gets thinner. Until he loses California, I am not giving up hope. But then, as many states as he’s had that he should have won and did not (I’ll let you do your own research into the voter fraud in this election), I have no doubt that the percentages beforehand will be high….yet Romney will mysteriously walk off with California….

The American Republic: In Recquiescat Pace!

    Thanks for the spur- I really need to look into Ron Paul more thoroughly since I’m pretty well turned off the rest by now. But yes, alas, he’s akin to Kerry.

      I don’t know if your Democrat or Republican. I’d become pretty apathetic to the political process. It just seems like all of them are crooks or Big Brother wannabe’s. But a friend of mine turned me on to Ron Paul, and I’m pretty excited about the things he says. But I think his chances of winning are near zero. The big media types hate him because they like having power over us. And they’ll keep having power over us as long as they keep getting their establishment candidates rammed down our throats. Anyway….thanks for tolerating my rant. I check out your blog when I have the chance. You’ve posted good stuff! And thanks for reading mine. Keep pursuing that bliss!

      Absolutely spot on Jeff. I’m afraid that I am more of the timid man, myself. Ron Paul and the few that are like him are brave, hated, and scorned. I guess we’re a little closer to RP than to the general sheeple, though. We’re “following” him now, instead of waiting for the rest of America to wake up. If he succeeds, the very pundits that revile him will be touting him as a hero. In the meanwhile, its straight….you know the rest…..I’m so ready for the “employee spring….”
