The GRE. What's That?

Updated on January 2, 2012

Is This What You Really Want?

Kind of a by the numbers analysis...

I ran across this video of Representative Louie Gohmert which hits the nail on the head about Obama's pledge to "fundamentally transform America," which at the time he failed to define. He does a remarkable job of taking us through a by-the-numbers analysis of just what Obama envisions and how he is going about it. How he is going about it I find particularly disturbing in light of past history and figures who assumed power and then ultimately abused that power to people's detriment. Can it happen again? Of course it can, if we allow it to happen unchecked. The title is what it is. This is about the GRE and that doesn't stand for the Graduate Record Examination. What is does entail is for you as an American citizen to examine closely what we have had to endure the past three years as we are now at a critical juncture in this nation's history. So lets listen to Representative Gohmert and then if you want to dispute anything he has to say, have at it. Watch the video at the link below since it doesn't have an embed code the Hub finds acceptable.

Indisputable in my humble opinion. Who he is talking about hasn't done what he said he was going to do but his actions have been just the opposite. Krauthammer early on told us to watch what Obama DOES and not what he SAYS. The Great Uniter had no intention of uniting this nation. It isn't in his moral fiber. His background is as a community organizer and that is about division, not unity. He is openly advocating class warfare in this nation by his very words and actions. Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat, a liberal or a conservative you need to examine if that is the course you want OUR nation to take for another four years.

The Occupy Movement has his stated support. Since when has any President ever encouraged such conduct? Name just one. If a person doesn't have a job they should want to take what isn't theirs in the first place? They should be envious, jealous and act like heathens? If you want what we have then get off your duff and get it. No one is required to give it to you. That shouldn't be what America is about. This reliance on government has been going on for too many decades. Such a pity that that the 1% are paying 40% of the federal income tax. Life just isn't fair now is it?

What has happened to self-reliance, motivation, self-determination and just flat out having a set of gonads where you don't expect the federal government to take care of all our wants and needs. That's what people like Obama envision. I'm here to tell you there isn't a nation on earth that can do that, including this one. Is that what you want for this nation? Do you want the government to run everything for you? Can't you take care of business and yourself and have some pride rather than expecting a bunch of career politicians make many misguided, and let me add expensive, decisions for you? What are you all about? Have you lost your self-esteem and your pride in being able to be productive as an individual?

The Two Faces Of Obama

"We're going to be pragmatic, instead of ideological." I can't believe the biggest ideologue to grace this country lately had the nerve to utter such a thing. Notice how the tune has changed over the last three years? "Bring them together, rather than push them apart." Are you seeing that? "Punish our enemies?" Since when have Americans become each others enemies? "Listen to other people's ideas." Since when has he been willing to do that? Did you see that when he stuffed Obamacare down our throats. Right now 70% of the population doesn't want Obamacare. We didn't want it then and we don't want it now. Is he listening? Hell no because ideologues never do.

People need to start paying attention to the power grab that has been going on and will continue to go on as long as Obama remains in office. Little by little over the decades our liberties have been eroded. Is that what you want for our nation? Do you want the government to run everything, every little aspect of your life? Our forefathers fought a revolution to give us those freedoms. Don't you value them?

I'm just asking. I don't want the "Government To Run Everything." I want the federal government to conform to what the founders envisioned it to be - LIMITED. Get the heck out of the way and let the people do for themselves, the free markets to function as they should and stop trying to determine who the winners and losers will be. That is our job and not a bunch of bombastic, do nothing career loafers we have as politicians saying they represent us. Wake up! They represent themselves and we have very little to do with their political aspirations and stupidity. The only time they need you is to listen to their sound bites over and over again so that they lull you into knowing their names. The stupid part is that often we keep sending the same idiots back there expecting a different result.

Folks that isn't stupidity. That is insanity. I'll get off my soap box now and let y'all take over. I can only rest my case. We have seen the way Obama operates. If you choose to ignore the obvious then that will be on you. I will not. The "last best hope on earth" needs to vacate the People's House and take his golf clubs, vacationing wife and mother-in-law Nanny with him.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      Frog, Right on. I could not have said it better myself. Unless everyone who votes wakes up before November, we are in for four more years of this ideological nonsense and destruction of the America we knew.

      As you know,Frog, I believe that Hillary cried on TV

      and knew she could not win. She was worn out for some reason. She was the brains of that family and she was not used to doing much since before she did nothing

      but socialize Arkansas from the Governors' mansion office and campaigning is work that she hadn't done full time since college. And Obama was Slammin' her in the debates big time and she wasn't used to that. She was used to Bill gettin' all the bad stuff and not her.

      So, two weeks later pictures of her and Obie emerged on the internet, walking hand in hand into a back door at the annual Bilderburg party held that year in West Virginia, when she agreed to get out of the race and the group told him Hillary was the new SEC OF STATE which included a lot more power than the Pres. and a lot more vacationing with her lover and daughter and 10 days after Bilderburg, she dropped out and started making nice with Obama. Didn't anyone notice but me that they went from animalistic hatred for each other to BFF's over a few months time? Even the kids I was tutoring in politics at the time were like WTF?? when her new post was announced and they were like how does that happen?

      I told them that when you look at this picture as I have for forty years and from the perspective that a group of Aristocrats from all over the world are running this machine, everything looks way different and it's the little things that don't appear in the mainstream news ever ie.Bilderburg,or anywhere else but on the internet.

      For three decades now the media have lots and lots of lobbyists to include Murdock and the newsrooms report exactly what the White House Press Room tells them to report in exchange for everything else that they can get from the White House.

      Since the early 90's these two guys, photographers risk their lives and freedom to get the pictures of the attendees at Bilderburg and they tell the story every year about how they all get there and how much firepower and security and hoopla goes into these annual meetings and the same people every year appear in plain site for the whole world to see and yet not once ever has the mainstream news printed pictures or covered this meeting.

      So these powerful people and leaders of the free world told Obie that He was the next POTUS and that he was the puppet for the machine and wouldn't be making any big decisions so it's all good. The media didn't vet him for the same reason that they don't cover Bilderburg and besides Sarah Palin was a veritable candy counter of fun things to eat. Our media like the entertainer angle which is very diversionary on its face and MS Palin had it all.I can remember daily cringing as every little piece of candy hit the airwaves about this woman. I remember telling the kids that week that John McCain surely didn't vet her and he didn't pick her the Republican party did and that is so clear in the way it went down.She was on the train for weeks before she even met McCain. She was a very colorful puppet who turned out to be alot more rogue than anyone planned on? LOL With every new piece of candy, I began telling the kids that although McCain would have been a puppet for the machine too, and that she was the CHOICE who would make sure McCain could not win; well and Oprah and P.Diddy and the inner city free bussing to register and help vote. When the news came out that she was the VP of a group of people who were actively working to help Alaska to succeed from the US no one in America even flinched but me and when the videos of Rev. Wright came out, I decided no one vetted Obie for reals at all either, but no one cared, no one cared! Today I tell ppl that the Chinese will be soon showing up at their door to pick up their guns and to give them a copy of Rosetta Stone in Chinese and sometimes that gets their attention and sometimes not. Micheal Reagan first began talking about this possibility about 4 years ago and trillions of dollars ago. Until or unless every American cares enough to get involved things will go THEIR WAY.Analise

      Fitnezz Jim---that is exactly the question I ask kids in the Hood and the Barrio to get them to commit to attend political classes at my house and I ask brain dead baby boomers everywhere I am the same question. We are an Ostrich Nation and no one will tell you that they want the country to fail, but when I ask them to get educated and informed as to how that is already happening, the responses sometimes are priceless and these are some of my favs, My daughter is getting married in three months and maybe after that; and I let my husband handle all that; and I am too old to really understand all that; and I don't really get politics; oh, I don't really believe all that; I can't imagine that Democrats and Republicans are working together to destroy our country and I could go on and on.Sorry, Frog, didn't mean to make this so long. I never do.

      everyone knew who would win, but in my opinion the first thing he and Michelle did was rummage the White House for the BIG checkbook and that and campaigning and vacationing became the plan for the next four years. In fact I still haven't read The Obama Diaries but I have read blogs news and saw Laura Ingraham talking about it.I saw a Howard Stern news quote that said that either Michelle or her mother write about Michelle is planning out our vacas with the girls for the next four years.

      The thing I have been so amused by is the

      Jim - A large part of the problem is that the Lame Stream Media didn't do their traditional job and vet Obama. The actually anointed him in the process of not doing their job. Look at how they hounded Palin. Looked at how they are treating the present candidates as we approach the primary season. Then think about how they "didn't" treat Obama and should have. The dirt was right there and it was ignored. It's still there, added to and being ignored.

      anjegirl says "Stupid uninformed head in the sand people voted for him anyway".

      We need to consider the possibility that the majority of Americans actually WANT to see America fail. Its as easy as asking the question 'Do you want to see America fail?'

      I'm loving the videos you added. They make it very hard to dispute facts, though I'm sure some will try.

      Americans invest more energy investigating the best electronic device than on who will lead our nation for the next four years. The schools are turning out morons and the politicians count on that.

      Polly - What is wrong is that corruption has permeated it to its very core. Then the electorate has compounded it by just going to the polls and pushing a "D" or "R" lever like the useless zombies many have become. They are useful to a career politician but useless to the proper maintenance of a democratic republic.

      Is there any hope for us? I wonder. I agree with anjegirl, surely everyone can see this and what is this he has done about illegals I hear? Worked it out so he gets his way and no one stops him. What is America ever going to do when everyone who gets in office just does what they want? Can we ever pull out of this? What is wrong with our whole government!?

      Love this hub---I have noticed Louie speaking out more. It is really hard to do so when you are not in the inner circle of the Republican Party. The news we get comes only from the Campaigner in Chiefs press secretary and Obama has nothing to do with what is coming out of there because he can't get off the campaign trail. He will go down in history I believe as the lamest potus ever and the biggest divider of our country. Not to mention the debt, the vacations, the absurd failures of his wife and monster in law. Have you guys heard her comments to Howard Stern over the Obama Diaries. She is a real nutjob.Every American who ignored just the comments coming out of REV. Wrights and Obies 20 year association with his church SHOULD have cost him the election, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Stupid uninformed head in the sand people voted for him anyway. I believed someone would have taken Him out already, like I thought someone would take out Hillary because of hatred conservatives have for their marxist policies. I get why no one can get to Obie, though, because he is always on vacation or on the campaign trail since he took office. He has Pelosi and Reid to ef up the country while he plays. His Christmas vaca cost the American taxpayers 400 million dollars and the OWS idiots have cost the tax payers 20 million and counting. Idiotas, one and all

      Excellent Hub!!!! The Congressman is dead right! We MUST get this horrible man out of the White House! We must!

      If we don't get him out of there, I am afraid we are doomed.

      Voted up and across.
