"Give em the razzle dazzle!"

"A national political campaign is better than the best circus ever heard of, with a mass baptism and a couple of hangings thrown in."
H. L. Mencken

There is a song in the musical "Chicago" that starts of with these words...

Give 'em the old razzle dazzle
Razzle Dazzle 'em
Give 'em an act with lots of flash in it
And the reaction will be passionate
Give 'em the old hocus pocus
Bead and feather 'em
How can they see with sequins in their eyes?

What if your hinges all are rusting?
What if, in fact, you're just disgusting?

Razzle dazzle 'em
And they;ll never catch wise!
The song is all about distracting people from the truth.  My wife loves this sound track and plays it every so often at our house, and every time this song comes on all I can think of is how the politics in our country are just like the words of this song.

Unbeliveable... but true. 

You see the politics in this country have de-evolved to the point that they use distraction as a method of getting you to be ok with the choices they are making for you.  Think of it this way.... have you ever tried to distract one of your kids while playing with them?

When you hold the ball / toy in front of their eyes... and then tickle them for fun with the other hand... they never see it comeing huh?

Well... the same goes for the American public...  they hold the entitlement / service / issue of the day out in front of you by way of the liberal media... and with the other hand they are about to sign a bill that would cause some serious loss of freedoms.  They promise all sorts of things all while planning to go back on those promises as soon as the election is over...

Take HR 2471 for example...I wrote to you all on November 20th to lay out some language you could use to write to your own represenatives about how damaging this legislation could have been to your fourth amemendment (unlawful search and seziure) right.  I hope you all took my advice and sent letters / emails as well.

Well today.... I got a response... and belive me... my represenative was attempting to pull the old "razzle dazzle" on me...

Here was Congressmen Cathy McMorris-Rogers Response;

"Dear Mr. Pounder:
Thank you for contacting me regarding H.R. 2471, an act clarifying consumer informed, written consent disclosure requirement for video providers. It is an honor to represent the people of Eastern Washington and I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
Under current law, if video service providers would like to disclose consumer show and video preferences, they are required to get a physical, written consent statement from consumers authorizing that disclosure. However, as more consumers are using internet video service providers, like Hulu, Google, and Netflix, among others, it is increasingly difficult for these providers to obtain a physical copy of that consent form. I supported H.R. 2471, which passed the House on December 6, 2011 by a vote of 303-116. H.R 2471 updates federal law to allow groups to obtain an electronic copy of this disclosure form from consumers, should they choose to publicly release their preferences, and allows consumers to opt out of this agreement at any time to protect their privacy.
Thank you again for contacting me on this important issue. As your Representative in Congress, I am committed to putting the best interests of Eastern Washington first. I invite you to visit my website at for additional information or to sign up for my e-newsletter. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance.

Best Wishes, 
Cathy McMorris RodgersMember of Congress"



How stupid does she think I am?  What a crappy response...

I think I was very specific in my language in my origianal letter about how HR 2471 would affect us should the amendment they were about to vote on be passed.  Remember what it would have done;

The amendment to the resolution will grant warrantless access to Americans' electronic correspondence to over 22 federal agencies. Only a subpoena is required, not a search warrant signed by a judge based on probable cause.

The amendment to the resolution will permits state and local law enforcement to warrantlessly access Americans' correspondence stored on systems not offered "to the public," including university networks.

The amendment to the resolution will authorize any law enforcement agency to access accounts without a warrant -- or subsequent court review -- if they claim "emergency" situations exist.

The amendment to the resolution will now say providers "shall notify" law enforcement in advance of any plans to tell their customers that they've been the target of a warrant, order, or subpoena.

The amendment to the resolution will delay notification of customers whose accounts have been accessed from 3 days to "10 business days." This notification can be postponed by up to 360 days.

Did we see any response to the points in my letter back from the Congressmen? 


Did I expect a repsonse that would deal with my points.... maybe ... but I didn't have much faith that she would reponsd at all.

But this just goes to prove my point... our leaders are ignoring real truth.  They are ignoring the fact that we the "awakend" know that they are trying to pull stuff over on us all the time!  This is getting to an absure point.

They are ignoring our foundations.

They are ignoring fixing our debt.

They are ignoring fixing our moral degredation.

When will people wake up and realize that the only way that we can once again control our government will be to not let them lie to us?  When will we begin to use our power as the people to come together, and raise our voices to tell them that we will no longer tolorate their behavior!

America... take a look around each day and question what you see... when will you see through the "Razzle Dazzle" that they are trying to push past us?


As I write to you each day I find a gilmmer of hope before "The Event" reaches us there will be people who will finally open their minds... and mouths and say... "we have had enough"....

Take today for example.... Rick Santelli from CNBC finally let's a gues have it for tying to defend the spending and the Presidents actions on attempting to advoid dicussing the "fiscal cliff"

Santelli toward the end of the interview just finally looses it and walks off camera. 

But that is what we need more of!  We need more people looking at others and saying... I'm fed up and I'm not going to take it any more.... We have done this before in our country and we need to do it again...

Remember the Stamp Act...? Or did they take that out of your school texts books so we wouldn't learn about rebellion....

Do some research ... and think for yourselves!  Don't just blindly belive what ever they tell you! Don't let them "razzle dazzle" you!

Through your own free thoughts and faith in God you will be free!

Until next time...

American Greed with be the Death of us all...

" The beast for me is greed. Whether you read Dante, Swift, or any of these guys, it always boils down to the same thing: the corruption of the soul."
Ben Nicholson
Dear America.... I want you to take step back and look at your actions on "Black Friday".

Can you see that your greed and desires for "stuff" and "things" caused you to hurt and maim people today?

I've hesitated in putting this post out just so I could calm down from the madness that was this last weekend, it was atrocious to watch Americas kick, punch and beat each other in the name of consumerism.

What disgusting behavior. If you are watching the video posted to the blog... you can hear the man's screams in pain as the hoard of people tramples him.

But the events of the past weekend further prove my point that because of the choices we are making, we are moving much, much more rapidly towards "The Event".

I think this is a a good time to go back and recap that "The Event" is not the "end times" or the "return of Christ."

It is a man made event that is triggered by man made events... we are the cause of "The Event".  It is our greed for money... our lust for war... our dissolution of our morality... and the destruction of our environment all in the name of comfort, and keeping up with what we see on MTV or the internet.

Greed is destroying us.  It is corrupting us from the inside out and we just let it happen.   Right now millions of Americans just spent millions of dollars on their credit cards.  52.4 Billion dollars was spent on "great deals".

Can you imagine how much 52.4 billion dollars is?

Why is it when we have record poverty .... and when the number of food stamp users exceeds the combined populations of Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming. Do we have people spending rediculas sums of money on non consumable goods?

We have lost our way!  It is scary to see how consumerism is driving the bus.  But even more than that... it is frightening to see that Americas would practically kill each other for a cheap cell phone or a cheap TV.

This proves my point.  People when given the opportunity and desperation is high enough for food and supplies will stop at nothing to get what they want. In the past I have compared people to Zombies.  I'm sorry ... I couldn't be more right on this point.

The hoards will do what it takes to accomplish this.

Right now in America one in four children are on food stamps... But what happens when the money runs out...

I have written about this before... do you remember this?

"It is the dead of winter.

Its dinner time, your kids come to you and ask, “Mom/Dad… what’s for dinner?” 

You panic.  Last night’s dinner finished up the rest of the oatmeal, and what was left of the fruit snacks… and that was the only meal they had all day.

You hope and pray as you head to your pantry… you open the doors… nothing… absolutely nothing. 

You turn around to see their little eyes staring back at you.   

You tell them, “I’m so sorry … we don’t have anything…”

You see their eyes well up with tears… and then the tears come.  You offer them some water… but that only goes so far.   

They cry for a while only to fall asleep in your arms from lack of energy and you cry yourself to sleep wondering,

“God… why is this happening…. What will I do tomorrow morning?" 

When the morning comes you have nothing for them.  Days go by and eventually their hair begins to thin and their teeth begin to fall out.  Their bellies become distended.  You do everything you can to find food.  Water is only going so far.  You beg, you dig in the snow till your hands are bloody.  You had a dog, but it disappeared weeks ago. It was one night ... then later you swore that you smelled cooking meat.

But time continues on an you find nothing... everyone else has had the same idea... there is nothing to be found... anywhere.

Then one night the unthinkable happens.  Your babies simply fall asleep crying from the pain in their tummies  and never wake up."

Do you not get it?  Do you not realize that "stuff" is just that... stuff!  The latest cell phone, xbox game, newest Lexus with Bluetooth navigation is just another thing you don't need and besides... they're electronic and can be damaged by an emp!

Your future is on the line America.  Your children's future is on the line.

I'm here to tell you the money is going to run out.  The Fed can only print so much, the Government can only lie so much to you before its too late.

Please watch this video ...these men are expert in their fields ... they don't want families to have suffer, they are trying to warn everyone that our "Event" is coming rapidly at us.


But here is an ugly truth.... we only have ourselves to blame.   We are too reliant on the Government for our handouts... and we spend every dime we have in search of the next item that will bring us happiness that we never take a moment to think..."How is what I am doing right now going to affect others?"

We fail to think about the long term consequences for our families and our children.

So America... think about this as you go into the rest of the holiday season ... what will the thousands you just spent gain you in the long run?  Will it feed your kids?  Will it protect them?

Or are you prepared to sacrifice them when "The Event" comes because you didn't prepare?

Until next time....

H.R 2471 -

Friends and readers.... this will be a different post today as I have limited time to write...

But once again the "leaders" of this coutnry are attempting to eliminate a portion of the bill of rights...

H.R 2471 is an exsisting house resolution being pushed through to get the language of it changed to allow law enforcement officials to read electronic communications without a warrent...

I sent a letter to my congress person today regarding it... here is the language of my letter;


Dear Congressmen (Insert Congress Persons Name Here)
Thank you for taking the time to read my correspondence.
Recently it has come to my attention that once again one of your fellow legislators has chosen once again to pursue a course in eliminating our citizen’s fourth amendment rights.
I as well as others here in my community are aware that on November 29th the Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding a vote to amend H.R 2471.  From my research I find this to be a summary of the changes;
The amendment to the resolution will grant warrantless access to Americans' electronic correspondence to over 22 federal agencies. Only a subpoena is required, not a search warrant signed by a judge based on probable cause.

The amendment to the resolution will permits state and local law enforcement to warrantlessly access Americans' correspondence stored on systems not offered "to the public," including university networks.

The amendment to the resolution will authorize any law enforcement agency to access accounts without a warrant -- or subsequent court review -- if they claim "emergency" situations exist.

The amendment to the resolution will now say providers "shall notify" law enforcement in advance of any plans to tell their customers that they've been the target of a warrant, order, or subpoena.

The amendment to the resolution will delay notification of customers whose accounts have been accessed from 3 days to "10 business days." This notification can be postponed by up to 360 days.

All of the above summaries are an absolute violation of American’s fourth amendment rights.
Remember, the fourth amendment states;

“ The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Electronic communication is part of “papers and effects.”  They are private communication and should be treated so.

I once again want to express my severe disappointment in the current administrations attempt to remove our granted freedoms and liberties. 
Congressmen, I implore you.
Please stop this freedom eliminating nonsense; this is getting to an absurd point.
First we had CISPA.
Then we had PIPPA and SOPA.
Now we have the NDAA, which you voted for.
When will this stop?  When will those on Capitol Hill decide that their reach has gone too far?
When will you and your fellow representatives decide that our freedoms are better preserved through alternatives rather than through the continual removal of our liberties?
Thomas Jefferson the author of the constitution once said;
“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”
H.R 2471 is the will of the current tyrant… you must stop it.
Our country… nay … our freedoms are too important to allow this resolution to pass. 
If this passes… it will set a dangerous precedent that will open the doors to allow every letter of the Bill of Rights to be eliminated and for America to become what the founders fought against.
Please hear the will of the people.
Thank you again for reading my letter.

"A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand.."

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions and laughed delightedly at his licentiousness and thought it very superior of him to acquire vast amounts of gold illicitly. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the 'new, wonderful good society' which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean 'more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious."
Marcus Tullius Ceciro

I am grieving for my country... America no longer has a voice... it no longer has a path that will possibly ease us through "The Event"....

Here are two things that I know to be true;

1.  People are incredibly mad about the results of the elections.... it was a sham, it was a farce and now people are speaking with the tools that have been provided to them.  Look at this succession map. 

2.  What I predicted in, my earlier articles, "The House of Cards is Starting to Fall", and "The Law of Diminishing Return" are coming true!

The people are begining to wake up!  Yes... it may be a limited movement... for the moment.

But people are realizing that "The Event" is coming at us so rapidly that we have to do somthing...

Now... do I belive that sucession is the answer... No.  When states succeed they fight against one another... not together... as the title of my article states... "A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand..."'

America is absurdly divided... and they are using each other against us. They are playing family against family... brother against sister and man against woman to accomplish this...

They have used fear... money and food to accomplish this.... look... they will even ruin the reputation of a great man to accomplish this!

Now... I absolutely feel that succession will not fix the problem... remember the problem will never be truly fixed, "The Event" must come...

The President, his leadership and those who belive that they are doing the right thing for the nation are so grossly disconnected that they will never be able to come together and fix the issues that will allow us to survive.

The Event will come... it will collapse America as we know it today.  What will come... well nobody knows... but we together can shape it.

So ..... Where does that leave us?  What will we do for our families?  What will we do to make sure that  when "The Event" reaches us, that we will have something to fall back on?

It is time my readers....!

It is time that you no longer live in fear of the coming Event.

It will come... it has to come... America has long outlived its usefullness.  It is time for a change.

It is time for you to prepare with Bullets, Beans and Bandaids.

It is time for you to use your voice to call your Representatives and tell them they are doing a terrible job on our behalf.

Some of you will email or blast me in the forums for the statment I said above... you will call it blasphemes and evil.  You will tell me that I am ignorant and stupid and I don't know how to write...

Go ahead... get it out of your system... be cruel and stupid and then realize you are a typical American.

You are asleep and don't care what happens.  You are sheep being led to the slaughter.  You will continue to live in the dream that America is the greatest nation on the planet... you want you hand out... you want to be a troll and do anything to keep the truth from getting out...

You are afraid.

Why do you want to save America in its current form?  Why? Don't you want to see limited government that only protects the rights of its people is the only way?

Why would you want to see the continued suffering and oppression? Why do you want families to have to worry about saying the wrong thing and disappearing in the middle of the night?

Why do you want to support a Government who has laws like the NDAA?

Why would you want to have "politics" as usual in the White house?  Don't confuse what I just said.... the vote you just cast ment nothing!


It was decided from the start.  I have told you that the Electorial College was an old and antiquated system.

The President knew that he would be re-elected because he made it so!

Remember this video?

Remember what I talked about in, "Just another brick in the wall?"  Yes the argument can be made to keep the college due to "highly" populated areas of the country.... I get that... but really.... if all the states looked like this on election night... how is possible that that Americas voice was for "the status quo"?

I want you to read this article, "22 signs that Voter Fraud is wildly out of control...."

Some of you will read that and just call me a sore looser... some of you will read it and think to yourself.... "huh.... why did they call those states so early?  How could county's have election enrollment rates of over 100 percent? Why would someone report that they saw votes changed for Obama manually?"

You who are asking those questions above... guess what... your in the right... your the ones who are slowly waking up the realization that America is a sham.

Did I want Romney for President... No... Did I want Obama for President... No... I voted for Ron Paul... I voted for someone who I believed that could actually make a difference, and make the hard choices that America needs to face.

You have got to start speaking up! You have got to start raising your voices together.. you have to believe that you will make a difference... it has been done before in history...

Take a look at the French Revolution;

What truly took the French into their revolution was Economic... they were bankrupt from fighting wars... (sound familiar?)

King Louis VXI's tax policy was killing the middle class and inflation was running rampant.  (Again... sound familiar?)

The rich and powerful were seen as severely disconnected from the poor and middle class.  (And Again... sound familiar?)

Do you see any similarities?  Do you see that every major great aristocracy must fall?  That when the money and the power do no longer become separate that the people must rise up and say to their leaders, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH YOU NO LONGER GET TO DECIDE FOR US!"

What will it take to inspire you?  Will you have to loose your job?  Will you have to have your house taken by a tax lein?  Will you have to loose a child to starvation?






Until next time...

The Real Hunger Games...

"The Government teaches the whole people by example. If the Government becomes a law breaker, it breeds contempt for the law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy." 

- Louis D. Brandies, Supreme Court Justice. 

Do you remember when I posted this photo back in July?

Do you remember the story behind it?

Quick refresher... someone broke into my car to steal what ever they could.

This particular post I named W.R.O.L, defined as, "without the rule of law".

Oh my word... that post drew some heavy, very angry criticism.  You wouldn't believe some of the conversations I had and the email "hate mail" I received as part of that post.  People were shocked and appalled that I would even suggest that people would band together and loot and potentially kill each other.

I feel that people were really upset of the fact that anarchy could actually take place, that people would sink to that level.

I decided not to deter from continuing my message. I wrote about it again in, "The house of cards is starting to fall.

I have stuck to my guns on my thoughts around the fact that this erosion of people disregarding the law... and you know what... it is happening right in front of our eyes. 

Let's look at what is happening over in the Mid-Atlantic coast.

Here is a headline for you;

Queens residents arm themselves in the post-storm blackout from looters - Residents feel isolated and some use guns, baseball bats, booby traps — even a bow and arrow — to defend themselves.

 Keone Singlehurst, 42, who lives in a bungalow on Beach 87th Street in the
 Rockaways, says he wouldn't hesitate to use a bow on a looter.
People are having to booby trap their front doors... to prevent other people from trying to take needed food, supplies and clean water!

Here is another one for you;
Sandy Price Gouging Probed: $7 Loaf of Bread, $10 Box of Matches

Or how about this one; 
Shameless! Staten Island man busted for impersonating Red Cross worker - attempting to burglarize Sandy evacuated homes. 
I remember when I first wrote W.R.O.L... I couldn't believe that my mind was going there...

I didn't want to believe that people would actually begin to sink to the level that they would justify killing other human beings for food, water or shelter...

I studied history... I looked at different conflicts.. I looked at different countries when they fell ... I studied the bible for examples... and you know what I saw each and every time?
When the government falls... when "The Event" takes place.. people revert back to their most basic of goals... Food... Water ... Shelter...  They bind together... work towards a common goal of preservation.  
But worse than that... it always ... always descends into "clans" who prey off of each other, then it brings out the worst in people!

This is why you and your family need to prepare for emergencies... This is why you and your family need to have a plan in place to know if your going to "Bug out" or "Bug In" ... .and how you are going to protect yourself your family and your home.

People will become hords... people will fight to preserve life... people will kill you to help them live.

Earlier this year I wrote about families who are un-prepared in the post, "Your Lack of Planning...."

And I want to revisit that... there were way to many people caught un prepared for what came their way, they didn't list to the advice of the experts that said that said that bad stuff was coming.



You are the leader in your home, you are the person that your kids will look at with tears in their eyes as you tell them that you cannot feed them because you didn't plan ahead.


These families in New York and New Jersey are living examples... there are families suffering in Long Island and Breezy Point and you know what... still important power equipment sits in Central Park... and FEMA is doing a terrible job of helping families.

You just cannot rely on the Government to do anything right for its people... its too big... its too bulky ... its too inefficient. 

You have to have a plan in place!

Do you want to be a victim or do you want to be a survivor?  Do you want your family to suffer, to freeze, to be vulnerable?

I've posted this video because I feel it is a good message to see people who didn't plan, who are now suffering because of their choices, and I must again state... I am not a republican either so ... don't read into the Romney bit at the end.

Do I take joy in watching the suffering of people - ABSOLUTELY NOT!

I've donated to the Red Cross and my family and I pray every-night for the victims of what happened.

It is terrible... and like I have said before... I wouldn't wish it on my enemy.

But I re-itterate again that there are important lessons to be learned here.

Get your plan together... Get it implemented and stop wasting time.

Until next time...

The Rising Tide of Anger...

"Angry people are not always wise."

Jane Austin 

Your going to hear me say something that I never thought I would say...

I hope you haven't turned off your T.V.  I hope your paying very close attention to what has been going on over in the mid-Atlantic coast.

The aftermath has started. 

But not only that... Anger is building in this country.  Its building about fuel prices, a two party political system, its building about life costing too much.  Its building because people are generally unhappy about life as a whole...

They are no longer satisfied with what they have and they are angry...

It’s undeniable. 

But right now the anger is now most prevalent on the eastern sea board where thousands of people are getting ready to run out of fuel, food and water.

It is a nightmare scenario... it is one of the worst things I have seen come to this country in my short life, and I wouldn't wish it upon anyone... families with children are affected... and as a parent...I a especially have a very soft spot for kids who suffer.   No child should ever have to suffer because of the decision of their parents. 

But now… they are and from this video... it is heartbreaking. 

Some of these people did none of that… they ignored the warnings… and now… it is getting ready to explode over there like the gas fumes that they are coasting into the gas stations on.

Here are some of todays head lines;

Think about it.... what if you were in New York / New Jersey... How does this compare to your life…?

What if tomorrow I told you that a week from now a storm of un-imaginable size was going to descend on your country / state / town?  What steps would you take to prepare for it?

So ... what really has spurned the anger of these people?

It is the fact that they have relied on others for so long to provide them what they to survive or earn a living, and now... it has severely impacted them to the fact that they cannot get where they need to go ... or get the things they need to survive.

But let's step back and look at this from a bigger perspective.

We as a nation are un-prepared for what is coming at us...

If we have begun to learn anything from this crisis in the tri-state area ... it is that we need to be ready for when "The Event" comes.

Ponder that for a moment...

Imagine if this crisis weren't based on weather... imagine if it was our currency imploding.  Hurricane "Sandy" is just a taste of what we will see...

Imagine for a moment that in the wake of Sandy the Government decides to do a stimulus bill that would pour more money into the cities and towns on the mid-Atlantic to the estimated tune of 50 billion dollars... now... where might that money come from...? Well once again... the Government borrows money from the Fed at a cost who then either lends or gives it to communities to help them recover...

The election passes and a new puppet is elected and now we approach the fiscal cliff.  They can't decide what to do the right won't let the left raise taxes and the left wont cave to the right on spending... they decide to once again raise the debt ceiling by another 5 billion dollars... to 21,000,000,000,000 (billion) dollars, just to "keep things running" or until they find a solution and pass a balanced budget amendment.

The world has had enough... or enemies have been watching from afar and finally decide to make a move.

China, Japan, Russia, Saudi Arabia... Dubai and other various nations decide to finally hit us while we are on our knees... so they decide that our currency is no longer good as the reserve trade currency of the world... our credit is no longer good to purchase oil... and any an all loans we have out standing... are now called.

This would cause unbelievable amounts of chaos.  The country would not survive the night.  In fact it would make the "sandy" aftermath look like a walk in the part on a sunny day.

But here is the reality... we are close to that...  the fiscal cliff and economic collapse are and could be a reality soon.  Our leaders... show you that they have the best intention for our great nation. 

I assure you... they don't.

All they want is votes, power and to borrow and spend money as recklessly as possible to continue the illusion that all is well.

Nelson Mandella once said, "Unlike some politicians... I can admit to mistakes." and famed French General Charles De Gaulle said, "Politics is to serious a matter to be left to politicians.."

I think both of these men knew that politicians are bad for their countries... we need real people... not career politicians... or incredibly wealthy Americans to run this nation.

Neither will be able to lead us in the right direction.

We need real grounded people who are willing to make some incredibly hard choices to run this nation.  We need people who don't care about being popular, or worried about getting votes all the time.  We need someone who is going to tell the special interest groups to get lost.

We need someone who is willing to make the tough choices on social entitlements, to make the tough decisions on our relationships with countries like Iran, Iraq, and Syria.

We need someone who will work to lead this country through what is coming and what comes after.

Here is my final thought.

I love this picture.

Because it is the true interpretation of what goes on in Washington even after an election where people come together to elect someone.

You see... both sides have to admit that the ground is racing at them... and we cannot pull out of this dive...

The debt is real... the anger is real... the danger to our country is real.

You need to plan for your family... because they are not.  Don't be a family who has to dig through a dumpster for their emergency plan.

Until next time....
