AMERICAN CHOICE 2012
By: Wayne Brown
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.
