Mayberry's Socialists Sherriff

Updated on July 6, 2012

There is an old saying I live by; the Friends of my Enemies are my Enemies and the Friends of my Friends are my Friends. Well good old Andy certainly befriended the number one enemy of the United States of America; the leader of the Regime presently presiding over it; when he came out in favour of Obama Care.

Most passed it off as an aging actor trying to grab what little spot light there was left for him but not me. I can’t forgive anyone who willingly endorses something that is the number one impediment to American Companies both large and small hiring people again. Obama Care is indeed the 300 lb Gorilla standing in the unemployment line.

We all grew up watching Andy, Barney, Opie and Aunt Bea live the day to day simple life with Andy’s guidance. What I didn’t know while watching was in real life he was an avid supporter of Democratic Politics both in his home state of North Carolina as well as nationally. So his life was indeed a paradox; on screen he stood for baseball, hot dogs, motherhood and apple pie (notice I didn’t use Chevrolet because they are part of the Regime-aka Obama Motors). Off screen he was supporting the subversive politics of the party of Lenin, Trotsky and Marx.

So every time I watched that commercial where good old Andy sat there and extolled the virtues of that Obomanation known as Obama Care I threw my foam brick at the TV. How could you betray us like that were my initial thoughts. Then after I did a little research I found out Andy like Opie was a dyed in the wool Pinko Commie, a staunch supporter of good old Uncle Karl! Looking back I wish they had given Barney and Uzi instead of just one bullet.

Yes friends it seems in reality when it comes to common sense Otis the town drunk had more of it than the apparent wise old sage Andy. Otis would never have appeared in that campaign extolling the supposed virtues of Obama Care. Also most probably don’t remember, me included because I didn’t see the on line video but it seems they doctored an early version of one of his shows where he sits with Opie and says; “Well Opie, people are funny sometimes change scares ‘em. They’d rather keep doing the same old thing that keeps messing them up than change to the thing that can help ‘em.” All I can say is what a crock of dog defecation! How’s that hope and change working out for you now?

Are you familiar with North Carolina’s Governor Bev Perdue, if not here’s glimpse into the soul of a radical that Good Old Andy supported. On September 28, 2011 she gave a speech during which she said; "I think we ought to suspend elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make!" To hell with that little piece of paper known as the Constitution, right Ms. Perdue?

So the next time you sit on the couch in front of re-runs and that catchy whistling tune comes on, just remember the man walking down the road with his son wasn’t anything like the character he portrayed, no in real life it could very well have been Castro, Chavez or any other Marxist/Communist on that road because in his heart that’s who he supported!

      Froggy agreed; Democrats and Republicans have swapped places in some instances but his support of Bev Purdue was as recent as this past Govs. election; he knew full well who he was supporting!

      PP - Andy, when we were growing up, was a Democrat but that's when Democrats weren't taken over totally by the progressive movement. I started out as a registered Democrat until it dawned on me that what they were supposed to stand for and what I was seeing were much different.

      Somewhere along the line we all have to either grow up or let the government grow up for us. Now the task is to turn the Senate, build on the House and get rid of Oblabber Mouth. If we don't I think it may be getting a bit late in the game.
