Tuesday November 6th 2012: Americans Choose Their Future

“It’s a numbers game. The nation is leaning so far to the left at this moment that I can hear California falling into the sea. The 2012 election, more than anything, is a contest of competing American demographics that favor the young and the foolish over the old and the wise. Brace yourself for the next four years of America under Barack Obama. The demographics of the nation are leaning in his favor.”

Last Day of the Campaign – A Snapshot

Follow Election Day Results Live Real-time on Politico.com website

This is my last blog post about the 2012 presidential campaign, and boy, am I ever glad. I’ve never become so weary of an election year as I have this one. Neither have I ever witnessed such a vapid presidential campaign, utterly devoid of real vision, exciting leadership, new ideas, or real innovative solutions – by either candidate. I have to admit this year’s election has become tedious, tiresome, more than a little bit bleached. It has not gone unnoticed by me that the robustly obscene 1 billion dollars these two opponents have spent duking it out over the airwaves could have rebuilt a good part of New Jersey. It’s an embarrassing display of American decadence. The whole election process almost shames me to watch it.

I just want this over with. Every time another political ad airs on TV I scream at the banality of it all: paid actors reading lines for cardboard props masquerading as politicians. I’ve had it. Put us out of our misery. Let voting Tuesday come, please.

I already voted about a week ago [ I voted for Romney ] but frankly it’s not as if the choice placed before me was exactly stellar. I went for Romney based on his solid business background, well knowing his foreign policy skills are not that great. But I can be assured if Mitt Romney wins the White House he won’t hop on Air Force One and jet around the world, literally bowing to the waist to the Arab Sheiks who run OPEC. That was a moment of American shame I don’t think I will ever forget from four years ago. Under a Romney presidency I am fairly convinced that Congress, the Senate and the White House will all get along better and will make a real effort to work together to solve our country’s many complex and pressing problems. I just have that gut level hunch, call it “woman’s intuition” that Mitt Romney is a man who can get along with Democrats when he needs to, that he well knows how to cross the political aisle and get the ear of the other side on issues, and that his leadership style won’t inspire all-out vitriol. In fact, I think he will discourage it. We need that.

I believe a Romney presidency will kick start a new era in D.C. of “take no prisoners” fiscal policy, where every piece of ludicrous pork that has been sliding under the radar in the federal budget for years will now be on the chopping block, where states will assume greater responsibility for the financial destinies of their own regions, where the re-invigoration of the U.S. military will resume to guarantee that our enemies well know our strength and therefore choose not to test it. I have no problem with any of that. America stands alone with few real friends in a dangerous wing-nut world and we need to maintain our military strength. It’s the only thing standing between us and all-0ut global anarchy. I am smart enough to see that with my own eyes. I’m not spiritually asleep and I am not misguided about how precarious the world situation actually is. I do not operate under the foolish notion that we can negotiate with the worldwide movement of radical Islam toward global Jihad with the West. I pity the Left Wing ideologues who think that appeasement and “cultural inclusiveness” will make the wickedness of the world go away. They are so dead wrong at this moment in American history that it does truly bring pause. We have to maintain a strong military or we can expect suicide bombers to start detonating on American streets within a year or two. These are the facts and I am not averse to facing them.

I am of the mind that the less federal government we have the better off the nation is. Period. I believe a Romney presidency will begin setting itself to the task of either seriously reforming Obamacare, or just rolling back the legislation altogether. I’m all for that. Barack Obama steam rolled that law into existence over the vociferous and strenuous protests of literally millions of middle Americans three years ago this past summer, and that was the beginning of the souring of middle America onto Mr. Obama. Our voices were disregarded and we didn’t appreciate it one bit.

My instinct is that a Romney presidency would bring a renewed interest in Washington D.C. of actually listening to the voice of the American people and cooperating with it, rather than ignoring it. Because of Romney’s religious background I don’t get the feeling he is going to be a “gung-ho UN” sort of guy. I could be really wrong about this but I think he has the wisdom to know that we need to keep the United Nations out of American affairs whenever possible. In fact, I actually think that alot of good could come out of a Romney presidency that would begin the behemoth task of turning the nation’s fortunes around.

The only problem with all of this is that I actually doubt Romney can win, unless undecided voters have some sort of real spiritual epiphany between today and tomorrow. They are holding all the cards in this election, along with women voters, Latino voters, and college aged voters who voted for Obama the last time.  There’s always the hope that the millions of first time voters who sent Barack Obama to the White House four years ago will change their minds this time and vote for the other guy. There’s always the hope that they might have a real change of heart, after living unemployed in their parent’s basement for three years, subsisting on food stamps, submitting their resume to more than 200 companies every 90 days with no response, finally slumming it up at the “Occupy” protests because they have little else to do. Maybe these young American Obama minions from 2008  have reconsidered, maybe they have possibly decided that they are sick of living in their mom’s basements and that “a change would do them good.”

That’s what it would take at this point for Romney to win: the young people who are college aged, the Hispanic / Latino vote and the undecided women voters would have to come out IN FORCE voting for Mitt Romney in order to tip the scales and change the future of the nation.

At a certain point all one can do is throw up their hands to fate, sit back and watch. But here is what the country will face under four more years of Barack Obama. For young people, don’t pack your ripped jeans yet, because you will be living in your mama’s basement for quite some time yet to come. There won’t be any substantial change in the jobless numbers during 2013-2016 under Obama. Just renew your food stamp card instead. For Islamic radicals who are poised to infiltrate every media outlet in the country in order to “soften up the American citizen” to the idea of a nation whose population is 25 to 40% Muslim within 10 years, congratulations. Your guy won. You may now proceed to advance your “Islamification” of America program unabated, and with the full political support of the Commander-in-Chief. For the Occupy movement with it’s communist / socialist underpinnings and it’s murky connections to the CIA sponsored “Anonymous” group, congratulations as well. Go out there and start tearing up the city squares again, shitting in the streets, breaking glass and setting fires. Your guy won. You now have official permission from the Obama White House to raise hell and get out of jail free for it.

And finally a word of caution to any US Ambassador who is serving overseas in a precariously violent and volatile environ. Don’t bother sending any more emails to the Obama State Department to beg for military support and back-up. He just won re-election. Your requests will be ignored. His White House is not thinking about you. Just like Christopher Stevens, you have been officially thrown under the bus by the Obama White House. You may consider your service to America as a sacrifice which may include your death at the hands of radical Islamic hellions who hate you while you work to bring civilized society to their ravaged failed states. Your nation is not going to back you up in your position so you may as well know that in advance. You are serving under the Obama administration, so all bets are off that your frantic emails calling for help will even be noticed before the throngs set fire to your diplomatic outpost and suffocate you in it. That’s what happened to Christopher Stevens and it could happen to you.

For the voters who are re-choosing Barack Obama and inviting four more years of American decline in so doing, realize that it won’t be reversible by 2016. There is a tipping point just ahead. Beyond that, I don’t see how the fortunes of the nation can be re-directed without the pretext of another war. Wars have been used to re-ignite failing economies before. I’m sure it’s not off the table as the Obama White House plans their next four years. It really saddens me that there is no averting this outcome. But such a massive change of heart among young liberal voters, women voters and ethnic voters is not something I see happening. I can blog my heart out and it won’t make a bit of difference.

It’s a numbers game. The nation is leaning so far to the left right now that I can hear California falling into the sea. The 2012 election, more than anything, is a contest of competing American demographics that favor the young and the foolish over the old and the wise. Brace yourself for the next four years of America under Barack Obama. The demographics of the nation are leaning in his favor.

Has the 2012 US Presidential Election Been Rigged?

Barack Obama 2009 presidential inauguration

The Back Story, Inauguration Day 2009:

I began to get a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach while I watched newly elected President Obama give his inaugural speech on January 20th 2009. He made reference in the speech to his “eight year term in office” thereby verbally re-electing himself for another eight years the very moment he first opened his mouth to speak on his first term inauguration. I almost fell out of my chair. About an hour later I logged onto the internet which I thought would surely be buzzing with alarm over Obama’s outrageous [gaffe? or not?] comment made during his speech. Not a word was said about it anywhere. I could not believe my eyes. Had the entire nation become so drunk on Obama Kool-Aid that literally NO ONE heard Mr. Obama make this comment? I was dumbstruck over it.

I got the sickening creepy feeling that the NWO insiders had already set Obama’s term of office as eight years, and that we would be subjected to some sort of phony-baloney make believe 2012 re-election campaign four years later.

Fast forward: we are here, four years later. Look around you at what is happening at the polls. Voting machines in at least four states [ CO, NV, TX, NC, OH ] are recording Romney votes as Obama votes. I have read three different accounts of this happening just today. Is this election a sham? Has it been rigged from the start?

“I understand that, in a significant number of cases, voting machines in your states have populated a vote for Barack Obama when a voter cast his or her ballot for Mitt Romney,” wrote RNC chief counsel John Phillipe to secretaries of state in Nevada, Ohio, Kansas, North Carolina, Missouri, and Colorado. “I further understand that the causes of this problem are varied, and include mis-calibration and hyper-sensitivity of the machines,” he acknowledged. But he called for four actions at the state level:

1. All voting machines be recalibrated before Election Day.

2. Additional technicians in the event of further issues.

3. Sign notification reminding voters to double-check the correctness of their ballot in the machine before final submission.

4. Verbal guidance to remind voters to make sure that the ballot they cast is correct.

“I believe these common-sense steps will greatly assist voters on Election Day,”

Many Americans Believe There Is No Discernible Real Difference Between Romney and Obama

A Word About The Elections by Chuck Baldwin, November 1, 2012A Word About The Elections
By Chuck Baldwin
November 1, 2012Archived column:
http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/home/archives/5229With the 2012 Presidential election just a few days away, it is almost superfluous for me to engage in any kind of in depth discussion, as most people cannot, for the life of them, get past the political theater that is currently crescendoing to a climax. Therefore, I will simply provide readers with a few passing thoughts regarding the elections next week.I think Mitt Romney will somewhat comfortably win the Presidential election. This will cause “conservatives,” Christians, and most Republicans to go into a state of deep hibernation, which will allow Romney to wreak havoc upon the Constitution and liberties of the people. In 2012, Barack Obama is the “Boogeyman” that must defeated at all costs. But the fact is, with the exception of Romney’s more business-friendly approach to economics, the differences between Obama and Romney are negligible.

As I have noted in previous columns, the differences between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are miniscule on virtually every salient issue. They both supported TARP; they both supported Obama’s economic stimulus package; they both supported so-called assault weapons bans and other gun control measures; Obama has an “F” rating from Gun Owners of America, while Romney has a “D-” rating from GOA; neither man supports a balanced budget; neither man opposes foreign aid; they both supported the bailout of the auto industry; they both have a track record of being big spenders; they both fully support the Federal Reserve; they both oppose a full audit of the Fed; they are both supporters of universal health care; both men are showered with campaign contributions from Wall Street; neither of them wants to eliminate the IRS or the direct income tax; both men are on record as saying the TSA is doing a “great job”; they both supported the NDAA, including the indefinite detention of American citizens without due process of law; they both supported the renewal of the Patriot Act; they both believe that the President has “executive power” to assassinate and kill; both support the “free trade” agenda of the global elite; they are both soft on illegal immigration; they both support NAFTA and CAFTA; they both have a history of appointing liberal judges; they both believe the President has the authority to take the nation to war without the approval of Congress; and neither of them has any qualms about running up more public debt to the already gargantuan debt of 16 trillion dollars.Judge Andrew Napolitano nailed it when he said, “Barack Obama loves Big Labor; Mitt Romney loves Big Business; but they both love Big Government.”

Steve Baldwin (no relation) agrees. Steve is a former California State legislator and former Executive Director of the Council for National Policy. He said:“As someone who was asked by one of the presidential candidates to investigate Romney’s gubernatorial record, I can assure you there is little in Romney’s background to suggest he will be a Reagan-type president willing to undertake bold action to save our economy and restore our culture. I know every bill he signed and every statement he made as Governor. I know who his appointees were and the liberal vision that governed his actions. As Massachusetts Governor, he sided with the big government types in every crisis he faced. Indeed, he repeatedly sold out constitutional rights–freedom of religion, the 2nd amendment, etc., every time he had the opportunity to do so.

“He raised taxes on the private sector, destroyed job creation when he implemented RomneyCare, and came out in support of amnesty for illegal aliens. Most of his judicial appointees were to the left of Obama’s two appointments to the Supreme Court. As governor, he led the country in advancing three of the left’s most sacred issues: Cap and Trade, socialized medicine and gay marriage. Romney even supported Obama’s bailouts and the useless $8 billion stimulus. And he’s hostile to the notion of engaging in serious budget cuts, telling one reporter, ‘I’m not going to cut $1 trillion in the first year.’“Let’s not also forget that Romney’s advisors actually met with Obama’s advisors on a dozen occasions to assist them with designing ObamaCare! It’s no surprise that Romney is refusing to call ObamaCare a tax, even though it’s the largest middle class tax hike in American history.  The reason for this is because, while governor, his RomneyCare plan–the model for ObamaCare–was attacked as a tax and he argued it wasn’t.

“In other words, ObamaCare has been taken off the table as a campaign issue because Romney is afraid of being portrayed as a hypocrite for his past statements on this issue. This is reason number 167 why Romney should never have become our nominee.“I don’t care how his campaign portrays him today, his record as Governor is far more indicative of how he will govern than his campaign sound bites. If you’re not familiar with what I am disclosing about Romney, it’s because the truth about Romney was kept from Republican voters.  Yes, the conservative movement sold out to Romney. Starting in 2004, Romney created a slew of PACS and foundations that funneled thousands of dollars to hundreds of conservative groups, think tanks, grass roots leaders and GOP entities.

“In return, many of these entities that normally would have attacked Romney during the presidential primary went silent or even promoted him. I’ve tracked all of Romney contributions to conservative and GOP groups and it’s disgusting. It means that the leadership of our own conservative movement is up for the highest bidder and cannot be trusted to do the right thing. Even National Review, the nation’s leading conservative publication, took money from Romney and for the last six years blocked all articles critical of Romney. Instead, they published a slew of articles portraying him to be a conservative superstar. It was all phony and I can prove it.”Even though Romney will promote at least 85% of the Obama agenda, conservatives have no fear or trepidation of Romney because he is a Republican, whereas Obama scares the pants off of them because he is a Democrat. Ah, don’t you just love partisan politics?

Therefore, as I said, absent massive vote-fraud, Romney will be our next President. But he will do NOTHING to stem the tide of coming disaster. Romney will be a military hawk of the highest order. And while corporations doing business with the military-industrial complex will reap huge profits, America’s continued foreign interventionism is going to bring us to the brink of World War III. Furthermore, it is the “we are at war” mantra that is used to justify a burgeoning police state in America, which Romney will enthusiastically continue to implement. And unlike the Democrat Barack Obama, the Republican Mitt Romney will have little resistance–except from a Democrat-controlled Senate.Republicans will maintain control of the House of Representatives, which is probably a good thing; Democrats will probably control the Senate. Between the two, I had much rather have Republicans control the House, because trying to find honest-to-God freedomists among Republican US senators (you could count them on two hands) is like trying to find hen’s teeth. Again, Romney isn’t going to appoint freedomist judges anyway, so that argument is moot. But if the first six years of this century proved anything, it proved that neither major party in Washington, D.C., can be trusted with control of both chambers of Congress and the White House. That is a recipe for disaster!

At this point, I must remind readers that the reason Barack Obama was elected to begin with was due to the eight years of the phony-conservative G.W. Bush administrations. Americans were disillusioned and angry over Bush’s huge spending habits at home and his military adventurism overseas. I predict a Mitt Romney presidency will have the same effect. As with G. W. Bush, Mitt Romney will disappoint and anger the American electorate, which will pave the way for another leftist (Hillary Clinton?) to prevail in 2016.“And the beat goes on.”

At some point–maybe toward the end of Romney’s first term–the chickens are going to come home to roost. Neither major party has the guts to do what it takes to put America on a solid financial footing. They are both beholden to too many parasites that are sucking the life’s blood out of our country. And neither party will do a darn thing to stop this fascination with empire that is putting our troops in killing fields all over the world. The result: it’s only a matter of time before the inevitable happens. And just about anybody with half a brain knows it!It would be nice if a few states would elect freedomist governors, attorney generals, sheriffs, legislators, senators, secretaries of State, etc., next Tuesday. At the end of the day, freedom is going to be won or lost at the State level anyway. My son, Tim Baldwin, is running for a Montana House seat. Here is his website:

http://tim4hd4.comI know of a handful of other freedomists in Montana and around the country who, if elected, could make a real difference in their respective states. We’ll see.

So, if it makes you feel better, vote for Mitt Romney. He’s probably going to win anyway–but it won’t matter! But, by all means, when you find a for-real freedomist to vote for in the other races, be sure you do that, because that WILL matter!

Dead Heat: Romney, Obama Tied Leading Into Final Debate, Why Every Vote Will Count

There are presently 180,345,625 registered voters in the United States.That’s a little bit more than half the total population.

What percentage of those voters will actually cast the deciding “swing votes” in this year’s presidential election? It could turn out that as little as 3 or 4 percent of total American voters choices could tilt the election to either candidate, determining the outcome. That’s a heady responsibility for voters, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly.

The other day a 34 year old American man admitted in a tweet that he had never voted before, and would vote for the first time this year. I wondered to myself if he is one of those “skateboarding adult males” in America who hurled rocks and bottles during the “Occupy” protests period of US politics last year. It was not lost on me when I reported on the Occupy Movement last year on another blog that 78% of the people out there tearing up city parks all over America had never voted and didn’t plan to in 2012. THAT was a true WTF moment.

Ahh, we are so patient with our adult children in this country, aren’t we? It made me want to walk out into the streets and smack some of those protesters. And it really evidenced how ill informed many of our young people are. In an election like this one, every vote will matter, down to the last ballot cast in the last undecided county, in the last undecided state.

I’d just like to remind anyone who has marched in the streets with the Occupy movement, or who has complained about the direction our nation is taking [ either way Left or Right ] that if you don’t vote, please just shut up. You don’t have a leg to stand on. You are sitting in the stands munching your popcorn, enjoying your American citizenship as a purely spectator sport. Your opinion doesn’t mean much, if you don’t care enough to register and vote. And if you have always slid by on the lame excuse that your vote wouldn’t matter anyway, get ready to have your skeptical pants blasted off on November 6th, because in this year’s presidential election it’s going to be a very tiny slice of niche American voters in key states whose votes will cast the final deciding ballots as to who goes to the White House. Are you one of those coveted “swing voters”?

Which voters will cast the deciding ballots in this year’s election?

A list of the key demographics is below. If you fall into one of the following demographics and live in the listed swing state, then your vote could be the DECIDING VOTE in this year’s presidential election:

  • Ohio – A female voter aged 45-64
  • Nevada – A Latino voter
  • Virginia – A black voter
  • Colorado – A white voter with a college degree
  • Florida – A voter who is not white, black or Latino
  • Iowa – A voter aged 65+

Wisconsin – A voter without a college degreehttp://www.usatoday.com/interactives/news/politics/poll-tracker-2/

About the Presidential Race, The American Media and Where the Race Stands Going Into the Final Debate

After the second Romney / Obama presidential debate it has become plausible, really and actually plausible, that Mitt Romney could indeed unseat Barack Obama and remove him from the White House. Romney has made critical gains in several key states, and he is picking up fresh newspaper endorsements in others. The race at this moment is practically a dead heat, give or take 1 or 2 percentage points and allowances for errors in polling. Most polls now have the men locked in a dead heat at 47%  ||  47%.

British, Australian and European websites are providing the most unbiased reporting on polls, actual American voter demographics and other election related statistics. USA based websites are inevitably either wildly biased to the Left or Right, and you often can’t get a clear picture of where the race really is. That’s why impartial observers trying to report on the election have their hands full. We have two propaganda machines in the United States which pass for news outlets. One is the Left Wing propaganda machine, which churns out polls and news stories highly favorable to Obama and the White House administration’s policies: MSNBC, NBC, ABC, Salon, Wired, PBS, NPR and so on. The Right Wing news machine churns out the Pro-Romney material, exemplified by sites like Fox News and News Max. It’s hard for anyone following the election to get an unbiased snapshot of where things stand if you are getting your news from American websites.

If all of this is as irritating to you as it is me, go and browse some of the popular UK and Australian news sites to get a refreshing and impartial take on the race for the White House:
