Go Left Go Right

What makes two people who grow up in a similar environment become so politically different? This is very perplexing to me. Where I live here in central California, a candidate who I went to grade school with, remained in touch during our college years, and road tripped together a few times, is challenging the GOP incumbent, Jeff Denham. I am going to refrain from posting his name here, but he has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and the CSEA. Just do a quick google search, and he will pop up.

Everyone who has spent more than one second reading my blog is fully aware that I am a very conservative Christian guy. I grew up in a conservative, two parent home. My pop owned his business, and mom stayed at home. The guy that I went to school with, partied with, and did typical guy stuff with all those years ago, had a very similar upbringing. So why did I see the light of the right he went to the darkness of the left?

I don’t have the answer. I don’t know why folks think that abortion is not murder. I don’t know why folks want to reward criminals with free citizenship. I don’t know why folks believe medical insurance and medical care is a right. I don’t see why folks don’t understand that the more government is involved in the private business sector, the more expensive it becomes and the quality declines.

As the election draws near, I will post some of the acts I witnessed first hand that he will have to answer for. I have been contacted by a chapter member of the GOP that wants to hear what I witnessed. I am a bit torn, Jeff Denham is not a conservative; he is pro amnesty and mandated healthcare guy. But he is not a progressive.

After Rick Santorum’s stunning success, a Mitt Romney nomination looks far from inevitable

Quick Note About Mitt’s 15% Tax Rate

I had to explain this simple fact to a liberal pal of mine. Romney is getting hammered for his revealation that he only paid 15% on his income. Well, the 15% is what he paid on his profit form his cash investments. The cash was taxed the previous year at 30 something percent, just like everybody else.
He played by the rules, and if some Americans don’t like it, then we need to change the rules. I do not support Mitt for president, but I do not like him, or anybody else, to be falsely accussed of something they did not do.

BY Executive Order, Put Down that Twinkie! (via Indyfromaz's Blog: The Thoughts of An Independent Arizonan)

During the Health Care "debate" last year I joked about the government coming for your twinkies and wanting to regulate what you eat, since it would impact their Health Care costs when the government takes over your Health Care under the guise of  "qualified plans". (i.e. if your plan changes and the government doesn't like the change it's no longer "qualified" and thus subject to ObamaCare regulations) So quick but important diversion on an Obam … Read More
