Mitt Romney Nails Barack Obama Over Eye Popping, Socialist Video Tape … “He Wants Redistribution – I Disagree!”

Romney and Obama … Two Different Views of America.

GOP Presidential candidate goes on Fox News, ‘Your World with Neil Cavuto’ to defend and discuss the differences between himself and Barack Obama when it comes to the economy. Romney defended his “47%” comments and went after Barack Obama for his stunning admission from 1998, “I actually believe in redistribution”.

Romney’s vision of America is much different from Obama’s big government, cradle to grave nanny state where a majority of Americans are dependent and beholden to government. Romney said when questioned about Obama’s redistribution, ” I disagree … I believe the right course for America is one where government steps in to help those who are in need. We’re a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives”.

Partial transcript of Mitt Romney on Barack Obama from the Gateway Pundit:

“Frankly we have two very different views about America. The president’s view is one of a larger government. There’s a tape that just came out today where the president is saying he likes redistribution. I disagree. I think a society based upon a government-centered nation where government plays a larger and larger role, redistributes money, that’s the wrong course for America. That will not build a strong America or help people out of poverty. I believe the right course for America is one where government steps in to help those who are in need. We’re a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives… We believe in free people and free enterprises.”

In the end America, it is up to you. Do you want an America where you have the opportunity to succeed and fail or do you want to be a kept, obedient society, dependent and beholden to the federal government forever. The choice is yours. However, I hardly think this is why Our Founding Fathers fought a War of Independence to be dependent.

Declaration of Independence – IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

The Lonely Conservative brings up yet another example of Media bias. While the corrupt liberal media complex has no issue playing the Romney fund raising “47%” VIDEO, we hear crickets when it comes to Obama 1998 socialist “I like redistribution” video. Why are we not surprised? The shameful media is all in for Obama.

Joey Chestnut Still Top Dog as he Devours 68 Hot Dogs to Win 6th Consecutive Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island … NYC Mayor Bloomberg Wins Hypocrite of the Week Award

If its the 4th of July, it means the annual Nathan’s Hotdog Eating Contest from Coney Island, NY … it was gagtacular!

Once again Joey “Jaws” Chestnut was the victor in Jordonesque fashion as Chestnut won his 6th consecutive Nathans hotdog eating contest. Chestnut overwhelmed the competition and consumed 68 hotdogs and buns in 10 minutes. OMG, can you say Pepito-Bismal? Chestnut walked away once again with the mustard yellow belt winning by 14 hot dogs. Second place went to Tim Janus of New York with a distant 52 hot dogs scarfed down. Chestnut was proud of his accomplishment, although he stated he had wanted to break his record. Joey stated that next year he plans on going for 70. YIKES!!!

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

 

More than 40,000 spectators, some dressed as hot dogs, ketchup and mustard bottles, watched Chestnut out-eat his competition by almost 16 hot dogs to take home his sixth straight Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog-Eating title on the U.S. Independence Day holiday.

“I came here hoping I could do 70 (hot dogs), but I am happy with 68. It is a world record after all and I will be back next year to see if I can go one better,” said the 28-year-old Chestnut from San Jose, California.

I wonder if Michelle Obama watched the nitrate devouring contest?

However, Chestnut might have been over-shadowed by the “golden H” belt and the hypocrite of the week award given hands down to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The food “Nazi”  Mayor who has banned large sodas in NYC actually had the audacity to attend the weigh in of the 29 competitive eating contestants in Tuesday. Some how inhaling hotdogs is different than large sodas. The “hypocrite” Bloomberg actually tried to justify his hypocrisy by saying eating in moderation was the key.

Having it (a hot dog) occasionally is fine,” he said. “If you want to eat 65 hot dogs in 10 minutes, that’s even fine. Just don’t do it more than once a year and you won’t have a problem.”

Dude wanna bet? What part about COMPETITIVE EATING IS IN MODERATION!!! Bloomberg has to be either the biggest fool or the most uninformed individual ever. The no salt, no trans-fats, no large soda Mayor seemed to have no issue with hot dogs, even though some physicians have compared them to cigarettes. Bloomberg seems to have no issue with calorie overload.  Um, just curious Mr. Mayor … do you not understand that there is an IFOCE? That stands for Major League Eating & International Federation of Competitive Eating.  They eat more than just hot dogs and more than once a year you idiot, hypocrite, moderation Mayor. Personally, I could care less whether these folks gorge themselves and regular folks have a large soda. Then again, I am not a hypocrite like Mayor Bloomberg.

There was Mr. No Salt, No Transfats and Limited Soda reeling off pun after pun about a food reportedly so bad for you the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine put up a billboard last year comparing hot dogs to cigarettes.

At one point the mayor wondered if the reigning champs would win “or if one of their dogged pursuers will finally ‘ketchup,’ cut the mustard and be pronounced wiener. No question it’s going to be a dog fight.”

Good Grief, Fireworks Canceled in Oregen Town Not Because of Heat & Dry Conditions … Canceled Amid Concearns for Sea Birds, Brandt’s Cormorant

UNREAL … FIREWORKS CANCELED BECAUSE THEY ARE SCARING BIRDS.

Fireworks in the coastal town of Depoe Bay were canceled this year for the first time in 19 years since the town started the tradition in 1993. Were the fireworks canceled because of the dry conditions and fires like what has plagued Colorado? Nope. Were they canceled like many towns and cities in the mid-Atlantic states due to damage from recent extreme weather? Nope. The fireworks were actually canceled amid concerns for sea birds.

 The coastal town of Depoe Bay is about to experience its quietest July 3 in 19 years.

Town officials this year reluctantly announced they were cancelling the annual pre-Independence Day fireworks show, following pressure from federal wildlife managers who said the noise disrupts protected sea birds.

Business owners, dependent on the popular show for foot traffic, are not happy.

“It’s a great loss to our community,” said Peggy Leoni, co-owner of Trollers Lodge, a small motel in Depoe Bay.

Red Skelton, an American Hero … Pledge of Allegiance

Remember when individuals professed their love for America?

Please read and listen to the following commentary from Red Skelton. Its a message that many might want to take to heart. Hey Chris Rock, why don’t you watch the following VIDEO and the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’ from Red Skelton. Maybe your disrespectful punk a$$ will learn something about America. The last time I checks Chris Rock made a pretty good living having to suffer being in the United States. What a crying shame that so many who have prospered from the liberties and freedoms of the United States find it so easy to attack her.

The pledge …

“Boys and girls, I have been listening to you recite the Pledge of Allegiance all semester and it appears that it has become monotonous to you or could it be you do not know the meaning of those words. If I may, I would like to recite the Pledge and give to you a definition of the words.

I-—meaning me, an individual, a committee of one.
Pledge—-dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self pity.
Allegiance-—my love and my devotion.
To the Flag—-our standard, Old Glory, a symbol of freedom. Wherever she waves, there is respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts freedom is everybody’s job.
Of the United—-that means that we have all come together.
States—-individual communities that have united into 48 great states. 48 individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose, all divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and that’s love of country.
Of America.
And to the Republic-a republic, a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands!
One nation—-meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible—-incapable of being divided.
With Liberty—-which is freedom and the right of power to live one’s life without threats or fear or any sort of retaliation.
And justice—-The principle and quality of dealing fairly with others.
For all.—-which means, boys and girls, it’s as much your country as it is mine.”

Red Skelton finishes his pledge with the following wise comment that you know the Left and ACLU would love to accomplish:

Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our nation, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance “under God.” Wouldn’t it be a pity if someone said, “That’s a prayer” and that would be eliminated from schools, too?

Chris Rock Tweets on the 4th of July, “Happy White Peoples Independence Day the Slaves weren’t Free but I’m sure they enjoyed Fireworks”

Some people are just so hateful, they can’t even be thankful for what they have, or better yet, what has been given them from the sacrifices of others.

How very sad that there are some in this country who reap the rewards and the benefits in the United States of the blood and sacrifice of those who have fallen before them to preserve the rights, liberties and freedoms. Add comedian Chris Rock to that shameful list. Rock tweeted the following regarding the 4th of July:

Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren’t free but I’m sure they enjoyed fireworks

More from Twichy.com and the hateful LEFT that will take any opportunity the slam the very country that allows them the freedoms to be so hateful. A note to the LEFT, I dare you to go to the socialist countries that you so claim to love and make such comments in opposition of the country.

UPDATE I: Hey Chris Rock and the LEFT, don’t be making those ignorant comments around Toby Keith, “He’ll put a boot in your ass,” Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue.

 

Happy Birthday America, July 4th 2012 … Remember America, Its About Independence

July 4th 2012 … Happy Independence Day

Happy Birthday America, to the greatest nation on Earth, the Home of the Free and the Land of the Brave. However, it is each generations responsibility to maintain the freedoms and liberties that our Founding Fathers bestowed on us with their sacrifices. Remember America, freedom is not free. As you celebrate this 4th of July with family and friends remember also that it is not government, but your Creator that you are endowed with certain unalienable Rights. In a time in which it would appear that more and more Americans accept being dependent upon their government, maybe it is a good time for “We the People” to really understand and realize what others died for our rights to be free.

God Bless the USA – Lee Greenwood

If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

A note to the present day politicians whether they be Democrats, Republicans or Independents … Today “INDEPENDENCE” is to be celebrated, not dependence. The United States of America was founded on liberties and freedoms endowed from their Creator, not by government laws made to silence, enslave and make “WE THE PEOPLE” dependent on others. Do not allow an administration to promise entitlements and forever enslave you to the government. Do not ever forget what made America and Americans exceptional. If you do not stand up and say no and do things for yourself, as stated at Hot Air, we will become a government dependent society just like Europe.

In 1776 “WE THE PEOPLE” fought a War for Independence and against a tyrannical government. Men fought and died to throw off a tyrannical government and sought to put one in place that was of, by and for the American people. I would dare say that our Founding Fathers would cringe to see what their brave efforts have been transformed into today. Never forget America, whether it be with a musket in 1776 or a vote in present day, it is your responsibility to uphold the following words from the Declaration of Independence signed this day in 1776 … “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government … But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government …” America, do not ever let your voice be silenced and it is your God given right to uphold the values, virtues and liberties that were fought for you 236 years ago. America is worth fighting for, and it is your responsibility to do so.

And to the Republic - Republic, a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people; and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

America, Why I Love Her – John Wayne

From Alaska’s cold to the Everglades…from the Rio Grande to Maine…
My heart cries out… my pulse runs fast at the might of her domain.
You ask me why I love her?… I’ve a million reasons why.
My beautiful America… beneath Gods’ wide, wide sky.

Powerline reminds us of the eternal meaning of Independence Day and a tribute to Abraham Lincoln.

GOD BLESS THE USA!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA … Happy Independence Day: July 4, 2011

HAPPY JULY 4, 2011 … Happy Independence Day.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA … To the greatest nation, the land of the free and the home of the brave! Please remember this July 4th as you spend time with family and friends watching fireworks, and waiving American flags with deep feelings of emotional pride … Remember that so many have sacrificed and continue to do so to keep America free. God bless our troops and God bless our fore fathers who made this country possible.

I ask Americans everywhere today … Do you want to be “Independent” or ‘Dependent”? That is a choice you are going to have to make. This country fought a war of independence from tyranny and oppressive government rule. Tyranny comes in all forms and the losing of your God given rights is one of them. Never forget that.

Never more than since the birth of our great nation has the notion of “WE THE PEOPLE” been more important. For years we have allowed government to usurp their authority and take away our liberties. However, on this 4th of July I would like all to think about this great land and what made it great. America fights a war on terror for a reason. We the People want to protect our borders and our rule of law for a reason. We the People seek life liberty and the pursuit of happiness for a reason.

School House Rock … This just Never gets Old .. the timeless “Shot heard Round the World”

It is not government that enables you to do this … it was the unalienable rights endowed by our Creator.

The Declaration of Independence

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government.

To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

Happy Birthday America … in 1776 “WE THE PEOPLE” fought a War of Independence against government tyranny … in 2011 we are faced with tyranny still from our own government. Be very careful America what right you give away. Those that were endowed by your Creator, should never be taken away by man and government.
