AMERICAN CHOICE 2012

Things are beginning to heat up and the focus toward the 2012 election cycle is rapidly becoming a reality.  Chaos reigns supreme in the halls of Congress and throughout the redundancy-fatten government created under the first term of Obama-ism.  Americans, for the most part, are quite dissatisfied with the performance of the Obama administration to date and also with those elected to Congressional seats.  One might think that it is anyone’s guess as to the outcome of the 2012 election process.  I beg to differ.

 

No doubt, the Obama Administration is a train wreck all the way from the steam engine to the caboose.  Everything this administration touches turns into a problem of great proportion.  In too many instances, we find the administration creating problems with the existing situation in order to justify the reforming of it.  The so-called transparency promised so often by this lackluster leader has actually become a front row seat to some of the biggest buffoonery in the history of politics.

 

That stated, don’t count your chickens before they hatch.  Obama will go up for re-election with a war chest full of money.  In fact, he will have more money in hand for re-election than any candidate who has run for office to date.  One might think that a sitting President would need much less money to get re-elected but not this one.  He will have to buy his way back into office with slick advertising campaigns designed to distract the average voter on the street.  Remember, some of our younger population of voters actually believes that the illegal immigrants in this country are simply people who are here on vacation.  How hard do you think it will be to distract them from the facts?

 

George Soros will be on hand to make sure the money is flowing and all the proper assistance is arranged in what will simply turn out to be the “buying of a federal election”.  Don’t get me wrong, people will vote but money will sway the votes of many of them with a tsunami of distorted facts and predictions.  The younger generations of America have no fear of socialism and have been taught to despise the very capitalism under which they have grown up and enjoyed life. Their vote is still very much available to Obama and company.

 

You can also expect plenty of illegal immigrants to vote in the election as many have in the past.  Certainly we will see some crooked operations in various polling places around the country.  Just like senatorial seats in Illinois, certain ballot boxes around America are for sale every four years.  That is a mockery of our democratic process but it is a reality of the politics of our times.  Obama and company will capitalize on that process with the large war chest.

 

Another big factor will be a changing of the guard.  Hilary Clinton is a potential problem for the 2012 election.  The 2012 election is a problem for Hilary Clinton.  She wants to run and she so very needs to run because the time is right for her in terms of age, etc.  At the same time, if she does, she will cause major divisions in her party which could cost the Democratic Party the White House at the very least.  She needs a solution to this dilemma as does Obama and company.  And true to form, a solution is near at hand.  You can expect an announcement in the very near future from Vice-President Biden indicating that he has decided to remove himself from the ticket as a candidate and he will list some flimsy, warm, buttered biscuits reason for doing so.  Obama will have already offered the slot to Hilary and she will have already accepted it knowing that it is the only way to keep herself in the forefront of American politics for four more years and have any hope of gaining office in 2016.  This will be a big gamble for her because a second term for Obama could be a total disaster just like the first but it is the best gamble that she has at the present.

 

Another significant factor which will greatly sway the outcome of the 2012 election is the actions of the Republican Party.  Obviously there is turmoil in the party as traditional party politics of the old guard rubs up against the ideas and issues of both the Tea Party conservatives and the staunch religious right.  The fight over who should run will be a heated one and there is great potential that the wrong choice will be made hoping that name recognition will Trump the Obama effect in 2012.  Add to that the potential influence of Donald Trump running either as a candidate for the Republican nomination or possibly as an independent and we see some splitting of the conservative vote.  

 

Former governor Mike Huckabee may be the best potential candidate in the Republican Party in terms of a person who understands the issues, poses viable solutions, and attempts to bring people together rather than create divisions.  Many doubt that he will run including Huckabee himself.  Actually, I see the basis of his reasoning.  In the past, his own party has questioned whether he can win because he has a background as a Baptist minister.  This seems rather ludicrious in light of the fact that we elected a man in 2008 who cannot prove citizenship and appears to be a closet-Muslim.  The conservative side of the aisle needs to rethink their strategy.  If they trot out the wrong pony, they basically will be handing Obama the keys to the White House for four more years.

 

Then there are the 2010 election effects to consider in the upcoming 2012 election.  What might those be, you may ask?  Well, look at it this way.  America was not pleased with the situation in our government at the time of the 2010 elections.  They went to the polls and spoke their mind sending many liberals home from their elected positions, some senior ones at that.  The message was to start fixing things, to put a budget in place, to cut spending, to straighten out healthcare, among other things.  Though plenty headed to their new assignments bent on doing just that, we seem stalled in disagreement now and it appears that compromise will take most of the momentum out of what the public desires and business as usual will continue in Washington.  Given that circumstance, the result may play more positively for Obama and his liberal fray than it does for the recently elected conservatives who have achieved nothing they set out to do.

 

Obama’s large chest of money will have some sweeping effects across America.  Remember, most of America in the eyes of the politicians is just “fly over” country anyway.  And, much of that fly over country is indeed in the conservative corner for the vote.  In the end, Obama needs to control the electoral votes of about 16 states to win the White House once more.  By adding Hilary to his ticket, he will buy momentum and votes.  His favor with the unions and the illegal immigrants will also play well for him.  You might also note that he has pandered heavily for the Islamic voters of the country as well.  Add the village idiots to that fray and you have won yourself an election.  Along with his winning, he will again sweep a large number of liberals into the halls of Congress shifting control back in his direction and guaranteeing that his second term of office will be far more damaging to America than his first.

 

Should Obama gain the White House for another four years, the world will finally see America brought to its knees.  The nation is currently teetering on the edge of financial insolvency, yet Obama and his minions truly desire to keep spending money and redistributing the wealth if any remains.  Inflation will rule the day as the Federal Reserve continues to dump more and more money into circulation…money printed on nothing more than the faith of the American people; money printed for no other reason than to continue spending until the entire structure of our society collapses.  When that day comes, George Soros will be smiling as he admires what his many billions of dollars have bought and what wonderful work the puppet America re-elected to office has done.

 

The conservative side of the aisle in America has its work cut out for them in 2012 if they are to win the day.  The Republican Party must come forward with a viable candidate and a message that hits home with America.  In light of the current situation in Washington, conservatives may be prone to soften their stance and search for compromise in the hope of gaining votes.  This will not play well with them at the polls.  Voters sent their message loud and clear in 2010.  When election-day comes in 2012, if a significant portion of those desires are not fulfilled, it is not likely to be Obama who will pay the price in the voting booths across America.  Conservatives and Republicans cannot afford to split their votes in an argument over candidates and policy as it will surely guarantee their failure to win the day.  Now is the time and place to address those issues, identify a viable candidate, and get on point and message.  Time is wasting.

Their work is certainly cut out for them.

Wayne, our opinions differ but I always respect you. I can however certainly agree that both parties will dump massive amounts of money, negative campaigning, and twisted truths onto the American public.

Obama has disappointed in several areas but I don't yet see a candidate from the GOP that is going to swing a lot of votes. (although I hear good things about Pawlenty but don't know much about him yet)

As always, I base my decision on individual candidates and not 'political parties.' Wouldn't it be great to vote for a terrific candidate rather than having to constantly "settle"?

In the world of "pay to play politics," a lot of the good candidates are shut out due to lack of money and media coverage.

Why would the liberal or conservative media give attention to a candidate that is not spending massive amounts of money on their networks?

They bought Health Care with the Louisiana Purchase and the Corn Husker Kickback; it's not to far fetched to think they can't buy the White House again with enough Silver; think Bart Stupak!

As for our candidate only one man can win against this sinister snake oil salesman; Chris Christy. All the others are old news and have been tried before.

As for your Hillary scenario, I couldn't agree more. It's her best chance to the Throne in 2016!

@mckbirdks...I seriously doubt that America can stand another stimulus package regardless of who has the idea. We saw a tremendous amount of money all but wasted in the first go round...we don't need a second.

@WillStarr...You are so correct Will. Both sides will wear the results, it then becomes a finanacial race to the finish. WB

@rkhyclak...we all hope that America will do the right thing in the end but we are rapidly appraoching a point where we see how little our vote accomplishes I am afraid. Obama pays no attention the voters or the public for a reason and I think this signals the fact that the will of the voter has since passed. What a shame. WB

@CMerritt...I think you are correct but don't discount the weight of the idiots and the cockroaches when the final vote tally is counted.

@CMerritt....I hope the hussies will come through and win one for the gipper! LOL! WB

@drbj...The Republicans have a way of giving it all away at the pinnacle of their success. They embrace many of the principles of what is right for America but in the end they don't have the stamina, the stomach, or the focus to see it through as a party. WB

@LRCBlogger...Thank you so much for your kind words and know that I respect yours as well. What a shame that we cannot seem to reach that level of respect at the national level where it counts so greatly for our country. My beliefs here are not good as I am convinced that Obama has the funds to buy the election and the lack of patriotism to do it despite the fact that he is undesireable to the majority of Americans...that is the fallacy of America at the polling place. I am also already convinced that the Republicans will no doubt trot out the wrong pony for the race as they have so often done in the past includng 2008. The conservative message is lost in tradition of the old guard and politics; the democratic party may well be lost to the socialist movement of the left and ever ebbing away from its moderate base thanks to the likes of George Soros. There was a time in America when we all had a common vision. People like Soros and his ilk have done all they can monetarily do to attempt to sway that vision and take America away from the democratic process. Along the way we have allowed sin, corruption, and all out deisre for power to overshadow the will of the people. The nation is now on a course which is self-destructive in nature and eventually will prove to be of no good to any man, woman, or child. What a shame that we have come to this point in our history such that we are devoid of those who might lead us toward our common purpose in mankind. Leadership is a dead value in America and only something held up before the nation by the most baseless of people proclaiming a direction that only suits their own well-being. We have truly become a society that will implode under its own selfishness. Best Regards! WB

@Partisan Patriot....You may well be right but I sure would like to see Mike Huckabee have a go at it. I think he makes sense and I think he it one of the last of the honest in terms of the political breed. For the Republican Party to turn away from him on the basis that he was a former Baptist Minister is as outdated as burning witches at the stake. I think Huckabee has the smarts to do the job and the integrity to do it for all Americans. There is no higher position on the high ground. Thanks much! WB

Wayne -

Good piece. Yes, this is all about the money, whoever has the most to spend on getting elected. Whoever loses will be severely crippled. Then the revolution begins.

As an aside, Hillary claims she will be retiring from public life after 2012.

My choice for the Republicans is actually General Petreus. Gee, is that the reason why the President sent him to Afghanistan; to keep him out of the public's eye?

All the Best,

Excellent WB! I have been concerned about these things and using hub as a way to learn more about it! I have not been a happy housewife these last two years. My taxes at the end of the year have been nauseating. Really. I pay in all year long, everything I'm supposed to and guess what? The bill just gets bigger!

Me and some ladies at school set up a fun night for the kids yesterday so the other parents would come out to vote. I'm trying to do my part!

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas Author

@mslizee...The conservative element of this country certainly better get ready for an all out attempt to buy this election. Obama quit listening to the American people the day he took office. He considers himself far too above us to pay attention. He really believes that he can just stay out of the fray and come through to the other side...and he may be right. I still think it is highly likely that the Republicans will lose it by default as they trot out another John McCain type who has the seniority to claim his turn at bat. WB

@TimBryce...So you really think Hilary is headed home to sit on the front porch with that car-chasing husband of hers and rock??? Those two are far two crooked for such a sweet exit. Come on back by and comment after Obama makes his announcement that she has accepted the Vice Presidency! LOL! Thanks much for the good comments Tim! WB

@HeatherILT...The Republican Party is very much the party of the old guard in American politics steeped in tradition of the party. They have not seen a really good race horse since Ronald Reagan and I am not sure they would recognize one if he or she showed up. What a shame. WB

@RealHousewife...You are already thinking about how you can change things for the better and that is so good. That drive can become infectious and cause others to get on board. For conservatism to re-emerge and take over Washington, it is going to take a lot of that. There are far too many on the other side of the aisle who believe that filling the government with liberals will get them more free cheese and crackers...not that they need it but they just love free stuff from the government. Another example of our hard-earned tax dollars at work buying votes for the liberal agenda. Keep punching! WB

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas Author

@breakfastpop...Gee Poppy, Obama's supporters are out celebrating the drop of unemployment back toward the 9% level...they see that as a trend that we are in recovery from whatever it is we are in. I think we are in the midst of political hysteria lost in the fog of socialist wrangling at the highest levels of our government. I cannot seem to grasp how Obama can open his mouth about anything to do with the present budget situation when he and the (at the time) majority of Democrats in both houses of Congress failed to put a budget in place last October. I would say that this is a very good example of a party that is shirking its responsibilities to the people and to the Constitution. America needs to send these folks home to rest. Thanks Poppy! WB

We want to see a big change.

I'm tied of my tax dollars paying for some body else's cheese and crackers;). We do have a good group and I'm listening and we are hitting the pavement out here. Our fun night went really well and we ended up with at least 50 to 75 kids and we did a lot of fist bumping;) lol

It seems to me we lived in a system of "free enterprise" when did it become capitalism?


LRCBlogger profile image

LRCBlogger 5 years ago

Wayne, I agree completely with your comments. Remember when McCain and OBama agreed to use the public funds but then Obama realized he could raise a lot more than anticipated? He opted out and then raised massive amounts of money from the private sector. How can you honestly vote for the people when you are in debt to the corporations and special interest groups of the world. Is it any surprise why HCR contained no Tort Reform? Is it any surprise that individual lawmakers filled the bill with pork and waste to pay back those who supported their campaigns? Such a sorry mess national politics have become in America.

Sadly, you may be right the the GOP will typically pull out the wrong horse. I remember having to vote for Bush or Kerry and thinking that both were way below my expectations. Kerry was such a terrible pick by the Dems.


Wayne Brown profile image

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas Author

@dahoglund...I think it was when the federal government decided to start regulating everything too much for free enterprise to prosper, DA. WB

@LRCBlogger: Those in power under the party system cannot remain in power if outsiders are allowed to flourish in the elective process. They suffer from the same problems of paranoia that plague union officials when membership numbers drop. Bush had the roots through his father to make his run successfully. Kerry found out that even his wife's riches were not enough to buy him the office. Al Gore...well, that's another story altogether. We badly need tort reform in America especially in the medical field. I doubt the crop of lawyers holding elected office in Washington will ever allow that to happen. There was an old saying back some time that said right after you start the revolution, you should kill all the lawyers...maybe there was some truth to that. Mankind has lost a lot of ethnics in this country. We pulled this country together on shared visions and beliefs. I still think most Americans have those and can find ways to agree on things. Washington, on the contrary, has become more about winning than being effect. Our elected leaders no longer desire to do what is right but moreso what benefits them in the time they have in office. Washington lacks honesty. Far to many who serve there are willing to lie about that fact itself. It is time for our lawmakers to start living in the reality of America, live under its laws, earn salaries in line with the average, and be exposed to those programs such as healthcare that they are more than willing to shove down our throat as long as they are exempt. It is also time for corporate America to start ponying up on their fair share of taxes. When GE can hide over $5 billion dollars in profits offshore legally, we have gone too fair. I shudder to think how little taxes companies such as Exxon-Mobil are paying in contrast to the horrific profits they are making while soaking the consumer at the pumps. On top of that, they are receiving government subsides...Washington has duped the American public for far too long. Thanks much! WB

Wayne, I sure hope the Republicans identify who should run against Obama, soon rather than later. While I am impressed with Palin, I just do not see her beating Obama. I'd like to see her run for VP though.

I think Herman Cain will be a very good candidate. From what I have read about him so far, he just might be the answer in turning this country around.

Well written hub and well informed about looking at things from the inside out - from inside the US, that is. It's difficult to get a handle on how things are going within the states until a hub like yours comes along. Keep us posted. We'll be watching, now that Obama and his entourage is coming by this little ol' country soon.


Wayne Brown profile image

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas Author

@caltex...I tend to agree with your assessment on Palin. Cain will have to fight hard to prove that he has the name recognition that the Republicans all but demand for a candidate. They had rather run an old well-known name than risk a new unknown pony...that may be a huge weakness on their part for it represents their inability to change. Thanks for the good words! WB

@chspublish...I would venture to say that the US is slanted more than the news media might suggest. I believe Obama's approval rating is far below the 42% that they cite. Keep your eyes peeled for he will be pandering for votes starting with tossing Biden off the ship and bringing Hilary on board! WB


Motown2Chitown 5 years ago

Wow, Wayne, I remember during the democratic primaries in 2008 thinking, "Please don't vote for Hillary." Now that I see the alternative, I almost wish I'd sung a different tune. We can only pray that right will win out over money. There's just too much to say here in a comment. Man, there's a lot of thinking to do. I remember saying to my husband though in 2008 that McCain didn't stand a chance. When he asked me why, I said that moderate Republicans can't take the White House anymore. A true conservative could maybe hope to do so, but like you said, they've GOT to get the right horse in the race.


Wayne Brown profile image

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas Author

Your sentiments in 2008 were good ones and even if Hilary had taken the election I am not sure the outcome would have been much different. She would have forced the issue on healthcare as she tried when her husband was in office. It is doubtful that she would have reined in a Congress that was spending like drunken sailors without a budget in place to restrain them. Likely she would have gone along with the stimulus bill because she is in George Soros' pocket almost as deep as Obama is and Soros had already predicted that a stimulus of at least 600 billion would be passed before the 2008 elections were ever held. So, when you look on the left side, you can take the high road or the low road but you end up in the same damn mess. They can't do math on that side of the aisle because they are too busy crying with the Waltons. Thanks for the good words. WB

Great Hub and interesting prophecy on Biden and Hillary.

I did a hub on the Billion Dollar president, and I also mentioned why he would need more than the 750 million he had for 2008.

My opinion on 2012 is that if the system doesn't change then it doesn't matter who gets into office.

In 2010 the democrats lost big across the country, but not here in California. We still have Boxer, Feinstein and Pelosi as well as a retread democrat governer, Jerry Brown.

This indicates how loyal the democrat voters are and until blind loyalty for political parties are the exception rather than the rule, then the system stays the same.

President Obama and Congress are talking about a pawltry 60 billion dollars in cuts and in the last three years they have spent several trillion dollars. These guts are not even good gestures.

In 2008 none of the candidates worried about the economy or the sky high price of oil, and look what happened. The economic bust of 2008 was the only thing stopping the price of oil to stop advanicing.

Now in 2011, the economy is sick puppy weak and the price of oil has still risen to its 32 month high.

Reliance on foreign oil is both a major economic and national defense issue. President Obama and Congress like the line of congresses and presidents since the oil scams of the 1970s are doing little to nothing to change our reliance.

Having the state and federal governments tax gasoline is a conflict of interest. They need to remove the taxes and pursue a solution.

We need a solution this decade and not in 2030 or 2040.

The republicans are not trying to solve this problem either. That is why I say the system, and not the political party, because they both take advantage of the system. The only difference is how thay take that advantage.

Wayne Brown profile image

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas Author

@OpinionDuck...Hey, Duck! Good to see you out and about. I agree with you totally on your points. California is the working model for what is wrong with the liberal left in this country...you might say it is the leading forecast for where America might be headed if we don't change our ways. Certainly a move to reseat Jerry Brown in the governor's chair indicates that there is no "new liberalism" out there...just the same old stuff running the state into bankruptcy. We have some extremely pressing issues in America and soaring oil prices is right there at the top...maybe even above our current financial instability. Obama has the audacity to laugh about people not trading in their gas guzzlers and then turn a blind eye to the more serious problem of what the rising price of diesel fuel will do to inflationary pricing in this country. Whether you are driving a gas guzzler or not will eventually be the least of your worries when the impact of high transportation costs comes through to the retail side of the pricing structure on the essentials of life. Anything that KIA saves you at the pump will go the price of eggs and bread. This is the stupidity of his inaction on this matter. Actually, I think he is a planned strategy...it works to bring the capitalist system to its knees and opens up the door for more and more socialism to creep into the system. Once we are on our knees, then the government can come save us. I don't know what they will use for resources but that seems to be the plan...break us down then save us so we will learn to worship at the altar of the federal gods. Gasoline taxes were intended to created and maintain the infracstructure of our road systems. Of course, like Social Security and Medicare, the funds have been thrown into the general fund and spent on other things. Now Obama has to appropriate 50 billion tax dollars to spend on an item that by all rights we should have money set aside for...total mismanagement of funds...it goes on and on. Loyalty to the two party system is a politician sham designed to cause the voters to move to one side or the other. It takes away your individuality and does away with your need to think...a perfect outcome for a politician in this country. It does not matter which side of the aisle you sit on...the treatment is the same. Our system is long since broke and too many Americans just keep turning a blind eye and letting things go...keep on voting for the same old tired politician like Jerry Brown who has no perversion whatsoever about lying...hell, yes, a chicken in every pot when I am governor! That's all we need to hear and we send his dumb-ass back to office once again. America is getting what it asks for in some ways and what maybe it deserves in others for just being to downright stupid and stubborn about things that are simply common sense. If we want to slow the process of what is happening to us...we better be punching some holes quickly to look for some oil. Thanks Duck! WB

Great reply and now if we can only get ten or twenty million voters to agree with us, I am sorry I was day dreaming.

BTW have you noticed that it is getting harder and harder to find real opposing views to ours since the last election. They may still vote the same but they seem to be in a closet.

Maybe it is just me.

@OpinionDuck...Yes, I have noticed that change...they have gone underground which is even worse because it is more difficult to measure the effect. Even here on the web there seems to be little coming from the left. I shudder to think that 2012 could bring a swing back to the left and a revival of that movement but the actions on the part of the Republicans could easily send the moderate and independent vote scurrying in that direction. How loud do you have to say something for folks to hear it up there? They have squander our assets and now they want to play deaf but still quit electable! Go figure! WB

I'll build the rockets! Fireworks are legal in my county:-)

LOL WB - what a way to start the day I am off!! Thanks Tex!
