Evading reality has consequences

I am not sure about you, but I say give me a break from all the Republican primaries. I am exhausted, frustrated and more than a little disappointed. I truly believe I am coming down with politician fatigue. Little wonder the liberal biased news media has been salivating and foaming at the gills. They have not had so much to talk about since John McCain and Sarah Palin made a half-hearted run for the presidency.

This Republican primary is like the energizer bunny, it just keeps going. I think most folks would agree they all need to take a deep breath, back off and stop assassinating one another. In the case of this group of Republicans, they are their own worst enemy by providing the ammunition to destroy themselves.

My question to the candidates would be; if someone has you down kicking you much like the liberal news media and democratic smear machines do, why would you help them? If this continues, I think we need to find a large hog wallow hole and throw all of them in it. Let them have a good old fashion mud-wrestling contest with the winner being crowned the nominee. At least we would get this over with quickly and restrict all the mud slinging by the candidates to the hog wallow hole. At the rate this is going, it may defy Yogi Berra’s famous line of “it ain’t over till it’s over,” and be over before it begins.

We, the voters, want to know what the candidates are going to do to right the ship called America that is swiftly sinking with mountains of debt, people without jobs, illegal immigrants flooding the country, useless government departments and programs costing billions, fraud and wasteful spending rampant, overreaching government policies and regulation, non-existent Made in America, and the crisis in education, energy, morality and integrity. Tell us how you are going to turn this gimme everything now welfare culture around to embody the words so eloquently spoken by the late John F. Kennedy who said, “ask not what your country can do for you, but rather ask what you can do for your country.“ There is plenty of work to be accomplished and we need a leader. The time is now and the situation has never been more dire, not even in the 30s. There has been far too much American blood spilled to preserve the land of the free, home of the brave to recklessly throw it away. Ayn Rand said, “We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality.”
