Liberty Depends on You

Nov. 5, 2012

The Foundation

“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” –Samuel Adams

Liberty Depends on You

A Time for Choosing

Tomorrow, Nov. 6, 2012, Americans will go to the polls to cast votes for our elected leaders – everything from county commissioner and state legislators, to U.S. congressmen, and, of course, the president of the United States. It is A Time for Choosing, but also a Tipping Point. Will voters choose to continue on the road to socialism and the rule of men, or will they vote for a new course – one of Liberty and Rule of Law?

The part we play in this battle for Liberty is significant. And we don’t mean just the editors, staff and Advisory Board of The Patriot Post, but, more important, YOU, our faithful readers. Without you, what we do would be impossible, as would keeping the flame of Liberty burning bright.

Therefore, we humbly ask that as part of the final election push you consider giving a gift to The Patriot Post.

“I am an active duty Chief Warrant Officer 3 in the U.S. Army. I tend to donate to The Patriot Post during these drives, but when I saw the email for this drive I thought: ‘This year I chose to donate to Romney’s campaign. I chose that cause over The Patriot due to the importance of making sure he had the resources to win the White House. I’ll donate to The Patriot next year.’ Then it hit me that the choice should not be between Romney and The Patriot, but between those two noble causes and some random purchase I can do without. Without The Patriot Post, quality candidates like Romney may not have the chance to compete. Keep up the good work!” –Jim

Like many mission-based organizations, we typically raise most of our budget in the last two months of each year. To keep these great resources coming to your inbox, we still must raise $327,600 before year’s end. Please keep in mind that, knowing the importance of this election and taking account of a struggling economy, we did not increase our budget this year.

Please, if you have the ability, take a moment to support us online today by making a contribution. If you prefer to support us by mail, please send your donation with our printable donor form.

Political Futures

“As should be painfully obvious, an awful lot of people pulled the level for Obama in 2008 because they were tired of Republicans; because they were bored by the wars; because they didn’t like McCain or Palin, or both; because Obama seemed optimistic and reasonable; because the financial crisis hit in September; because they didn’t listen to a word the Democratic candidate said but were nonetheless convinced by the vapid ‘hope and change’ stuff and the (always empty) promise to rise above ‘politics’; and, yes, because he was black. … One of Obama’s biggest mistakes – perhaps his biggest mistake – was to conclude that he had a mandate for his brand of progressive change. He did not. The Obama campaign was always, in fact was deliberately, divorced from his politics. A smarter, less egotistical man would have realized as much. Obama did not. … [T]he Left likes to explain away the failure of the last four years with vague charges of ‘Republican obstructionism,’ but this explains neither the continuing liability of the still-unpopular Obamacare nor the real damage to himself that the president did while he enjoyed majorities in both the House and the Senate. Republican ‘obstructionism,’ remember, was only made possible by the 2010 ‘shellacking,’ which was the product of the Democrats' running riot for two years.” –columnist Charles C. W. Cooke


“If you agree with Barack Obama’s view of the future – more federal involvement (read: control) over more areas of your life; and regulating economic success and redistributing wealth by confiscating the earnings of those who have been successful, then you should vote for Barack Obama. If you believe that the success of a federal program should be measured by the amount of money put in, not the value of the results, then you should vote for Barack Obama. If you believe that the federal government should make you whole for a reversal or failure of any kind, whether or not the product of your own decisions, or forces beyond your control – and I’m not talking about major man-made or natural disasters – then you should vote for Barack Obama. If you believe that the real enemies of human kind are oil and natural gas and that the federal government should continue to subsidize so-called alternative energy sources in spite of the evidence that there is no economic reason to do so, then you should vote for Barack Obama. If you believe that an increasingly shrinking group of people around the President are having an increasingly growing influence over all sectors of the Executive Branch and that Department heads being answerable to Congress is an outdated concept, then you should vote for Barack Obama. Similarly, if you believe that the Congress itself is an outdated concept; that the President should be able to dictate to the Congress and to the Supreme Court what he wants them to do (with the word ‘dictate’ here used advisedly) rather than adhere to the Constitutional principle that there are three co-equal branches of government, then you should vote for Barack Obama. If you believe in ceding influence over international events to the Russians, the Chinese and/or the European Union then you should vote for Barack Obama. If you believe that national policy should be set by an amalgam of Hollywood actors, environmental extremists, and public union bosses, then you should vote for Barack Obama.” –columnist Rich Galen

For the Record

“If you watched the media, you would think Romney is a greedy elitist. However, the three recent presidential debates showed the Republican presidential candidate to be a man passionately concerned about the future of America, and determined to do something about it. … [F]orbes estimates Romney would be worth around $2 billion if he had stayed at Bain Capital rather than run for office. Romney decided to leave his thriving private-equity firm Bain in 1999 to rescue the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. He went on to pursue a political career that led him to the governorship of Massachusetts and now the GOP presidential nomination. And while Romney is today worth an estimated $230 million, it is indisputable he could have accumulated a far greater fortune had he not left Bain. Forbes calculates that had he remained at Bain, Romney’s stake in the company would be worth $1.5 billion today. … That amazing sacrifice shows Mitt Romney is clearly on a mission, and that is to make America stronger.” –Newsmax' CEO Christopher Ruddy

Re: The Left

“The Democrats spent six months painting Romney as a wealthy robot who didn’t concern himself with the plight of others, but all Romney had to do in the first debate was to speak honestly without having his words filtered through the liberal media. Once he did that, the voters got to see a man who was decent, compassionate and, best of all, ready and able to restore America’s greatness. On the other hand, the Obama they saw was the one that the rest of us had seen since Day One: an arrogant, lazy, narcissistic, incompetent, who wanted nothing less than to radically transform America in his own socialistic image.” –columnist Burt Prelutsky


“[H]ow do we know at what point the character of a people weakens? When they give over to government those duties which they should be pleased to perform themselves. When they are told they will be fed and sheltered even when they won’t work, when they are promised security from the cradle to the grave, when they are told the state will take over the supervision of their children and say what schooling they should receive and where. When they are told all these things and supinely accept them.” –author Janet Miriam Taylor Caldwell (1900-1985)

Opinion in Brief

“Wisconsin has voted Democratic in six consecutive presidential elections. Although George W. Bush lost there by just 0.2 and 0.4 percentages in 2000 and 2004, respectively, Obama won it by 13.9 points. If Romney wins Wisconsin, one reason will be native son Paul Ryan, but another will be the unsuccessful attempt by government employees' unions to recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker. … Pennsylvania, which has supported five consecutive Democratic candidates, has the fourth-highest percentage of its population over 65 (behind Florida, West Virginia and Maine). If Romney wins Pennsylvania, or even comes close (in 2008, Obama won by 10.3 points), this will indicate seniors' skepticism about Democrats' contention that Republicans offer the elderly only wheelchairs, and only for the purpose of rolling grandmothers off cliffs.” –columnist George Will


“I’d like to ask people who approve of Obama’s performance, ‘What has President Obama done during the past four years that you’d like to see more of in the next four years?’ … Blacks are chief executives of major cities, such as Philadelphia, Detroit, Washington, Memphis, Atlanta, Baltimore, New Orleans, Oakland, Newark, Cleveland and Cincinnati. In most of these cities, the chief of police, the superintendent of schools and other high executives are black. But in these cities, black people, like no other sector of our population, suffer from the highest rates of homicides, assaults, robberies and shootings. Black high-school dropout rates in these cities are the highest in the nation. … Last year, in reference to President Obama’s failed employment policies and high unemployment among blacks, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., who is chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said, ‘If Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House.’ That’s a vision that seems to explain black tolerance for failed politicians – namely, if it’s a black politician whose policies are ineffectual and possibly harmful to the masses of the black community, it’s tolerable, but it’s entirely unacceptable if the politician is white. Black people would not accept excuses upon excuses and vote to re-elect decade after decade any white politician, especially a Republican politician, to office who had the failed records of our big-city mayors. What that suggests about black people is not very flattering.” –economist Walter E. Williams

Essential Liberty

“In 1980 the question ‘are you better off’ swept Ronald Reagan into office and put America on a path to unprecedented growth and prosperity. This fall Mr. Romney has been asking the same question in expectation of similar results, but considering the current state of both domestic and global affairs a more appropriate query would be: Is America better off? Any quick and reasonable look would suggest that America is not. A deep and thorough analysis would confirm that America is standing one step away from the abyss of failure; one election away from an inevitable economic, cultural, and constitutional collapse. In the upcoming election the choice is clear: America can stumble forward to its demise with Mr. Obama or Americans can step up with Mr. Romney. … Step up and stop Mr. Obama’s fundamental transformation of America. Indeed, this Nov. 6th, Americans regardless of their percentage of circumstance can proudly step up with Mr. Romney and Pay Forward … America’s Greatness. It would only be Fair.” –columnist Champ Webb

The Gipper

“Tuesday all of you will go to the polls, will stand there in the polling place and make a decision. I think when you make that decision, it might be well if you would ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago? Is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? Is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? Is America as respected throughout the world as it was? Do you feel that our security is as safe, that we’re as strong as we were four years ago? And if you answer all of those questions yes, why then, I think your choice is very obvious as to whom you will vote for. If you don’t agree, if you don’t think that this course that we’ve been on for the last four years is what you would like to see us follow for the next four, then I could suggest another choice that you have.” –Ronald Reagan

The insight section describes the Democrats and thier useful idiots. They vote to destroy America. It would behove the black population to read Walter Williams, and Disreguard Colon Powell, one speaks truth, the other a despicable liar, who was probably paid handsomly for his endorsement of evil. The Democrats are endorsed openly by the Communist Party USA, this transparency makes a vote for a Democrat a treasonous act.

So, if Romney had stayed with Bain, he would be a billionaire now. Well, that's just plain evil according to the left. Nobody should have that much wealth, unless you're a democrat.
And, Walter E. Williams is again so very, very correct.

What Rich Galen should have added to his list of "reasons" for voting for Obama again was that, if you believe that the President should apoligize to the rest of the world for American Exceptionalism, you should vote for Obama.

Robert Kasper in Walpole, NH said:

I recently traveled to Ft Bragg to see my oldest daughter, a Captain in the Army. She is about to deploy to Afghanistan on a mission in which teams of two women will augment special forces teams already in the field to assist them in gathering information and winning the “hearts and minds” of the Afghan women and children they encounter. I deeply question whether this “mission” she has been selected to fulfill actually has any long-term purpose.
Our current President has spoken of the war in Afghanistan as the” right war” for our forces to be fighting. He endorsed the surge of U.S. forces to defeat the Taliban and to create an environment to allow for the Afghan government to recruit and train its indigenous forces. He has now authorized the withdrawal of those surge forces as their mission is declared complete. We have been told the Afghan army is almost ready to assume the defense of its country. Is this the truth on the ground or merely political spin?
If the administration is telling the truth, then what is the purpose of my daughter’s mission? Is her team being sent into action to build additional rapport with the already friendly rural Afghan peoples? Is her team being placed on patrol far from any U.S. main operating base rapid response team to prove that the Taliban and Al Qaeda operatives are no longer a force to be feared in Afghanistan? Or is her team being sent on another “mission of political denial” similar to one the administration apparently gave to our Ambassador in Libya?
When the attack came, the closest reinforcements were in Tripoli; they arrived too late to rescue Ambassador Stevens.
Is President Obama playing a similar game with our special forces in Afghanistan? Is this game of political denial being played because to admit that al-Qaida is experiencing a strong resurgence in northern Africa and Afghanistan undercuts the Obama/Biden argument that they have won the war on terrorism?
Where will the rapid response for my daughter’s team be if rural Afghanistan turns out to be populated with well- armed Taliban and al Qaida operatives? Is this administration now relying on the Afghan army to man that response? If so, this is yet another game of political brinkmanship being played with American lives?
The fact is that this administration failed to assess and react to the security threats in Libya and it seems determined to repeat that failure in Afghanistan. Is Afghanistan Obama’s Vietnam?

btw, my step-son will be deployed to Afghanistan in January, he's a convoy driver now, but before was a combat NCO. Please pray for him to come back safe and sound as I pray for all the others in the armed services. We should have been in&out of there after the 1st election. Rebuild, No we should have left them the heavy-equip machinery & light tools, to rebuild for themselves. Like cranes, dozers, etc., shovels, picks, hoes,etc. Why we gotta do it for them? Train security forces-NO, heavy-equip operators-YES.

Wayne in Hinesville, GA replied:

Mr. Kasper, I'll pray for your daughter and hope she comes home safely. The major problem in Afghanistan is the populace has no love for Americans any other Western country. They call us the Great Satan and everything we believe in is anathema to them. As soon as we leave, the country will revert back to the Taliban's control and it will be just as backward as ever. When the very pepple you are supposed to be training start killing you it is time to bring our soldiers home and let them go back to living in the sixtth centruy.

Instead of disagreeing with you, I feel for you. In Nam I saw the same thing. We called it "Americanization." We as a nation believe we have the best government and social make up in the world.

We cannot change a culture and when we do all we make is enemies. every president does this and every time I question what you so eloquently stated.

To me, it's the difference between being a subject or a free man. A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for stupudity at most and mediocrity at best. Remember, the mediocre man is ALWAYS at his best. If you want to see our wonderful country go down the tubes and become a Third World Country, by all means do what you maroons did the last time - vote for Barack Obama. However, if you want to see us come out of this govermental quagmire, vote for Mitt Romney. If earmarks and entitlements, free cell phones , food stamps, unemployment, and the like are what your life is built on, vote for Obama, however, if you believe in Free Enterprise and working hard for what you get, and then enjoying the fruits of your labors, vote for Romney. I am not concerned with the color of his skin, but rather with the emptiness of his head.

Blacks continue to suffer from jobs loss and under education.You would think the first Black pres would have addressed his culture first ?? He really has done little,So There maybe a seperation with them and Obama that will raise its head tomarrow.
I asked my 30 something daughter why she stands with Obama and she says she though he has done a good job and wants to extend the welfare ,unemployment systems, which by the way have assisted her through out her life. Other than that she really didnt know why other than she states she is liberal. I believe many 30 something folks just want the liberal title because their parents are coservative. I dont believe this generation is very educated on the history of their country and as long as they GET something for nothin they are fine with the Obama game---to bad. Most 30 somethings dont realize the socialist adgenda when they see it. Sheep will always be sheep. We need to get this country back on the right Christian biblical track,where family is important . Where hard work gets you a paycheck and morals with a world biblical view are the majority, and faith in the creator is the main stream.That being said Romney doesnt quite ring true to my christian roots,but he isnt a socialist either. God is sovergn and we need to trust in faith. Please get out and VOTE .

MNIce in Minnesota replied:

Not every parent with a bad outcome did a bad job. Sometimes children are corrupted by evil "friends" who persuade them their parents don't know anything. Sometimes a small weakness in childhood training is exploited to engender total corruption.

My grandmother once commented that while the Bible says, "Train up a child in the way he is to go, and when he is old he will not depart from it," that verse doesn't say what happens in between. When a child takes the wrong road, the best thing to do is pray, be a good example, gently but firmly make your position clear, and be ready to pick up the pieces when the crash comes.

Monday, November 5, 2012 at 7:58 PM

Merry in Cave Creek, AZ replied:

You are responsible for those "friends" and that "education" and other BS. If your kids are screwed up in their principles, or lack them, you are to blame. Kids can "screw up" in other ways where parents do not have control HOWEVER their moral roots are planted early and nurtured carefully until it's time to kick them from the nest. On that there is no "in between". You are making excuses for the parents and the kids---really dumb!

I couldn't agree more with Walter Williams. He hits the nail on the head, as usual. I do not believe the polls from the MSM, and I do think Mitt Romney will win this election by a significant margin. Having said that I will add this commentary. My fervent hope and prayer is that the election of Mitt Romney will simply be a first step in the restoration of Constitutional Government!! In other words I hope Romney begins the process of peeling back the seemingly endless layers of government and also begins, (with the Tea Party and our help), to educate the public about the proper role and size of the government. Hopefully he can then hand off that initial progress to someone like Rand Paul who will continue and hopefully accelerate that process!!

In this case Romney is the best choice. The only thing that obama stands for is the theft of your hard earned money. If you vote obama in for another term he will get rid of the constitution and many of this countries other founding documents. He has already been trampling all over the Constitution and everything else that he could. Obama has shown but contempt and disdain for this country. Do we really need four more years of this hateful person?.

Dave Mather in Troy, MI said:

I am very troubled by the fact that this president has done such a terrible job and that so many are willing to accept it including the media! This president has had such terrible numbers that he can't even lie about the rising unemployment. Yet the media acts as if it is OK. If it were anyone else, people would be screaming for a new president, not embracing the current one. I am also shocked by the people that are for Obama claiming that they will burn their city if he is not elected. How stupid is that? Back when Obama was originally running for office, I was going to vote for him. Then he announced Biden as his running mate. After Biden bad mouthed him so much in their debates, For Obama to choose him as his running mate, I knew he was going to be bad. It didn't take him long to prove it as he became president and selected Hillary as his Secretary of State. His decision making just kept getting worse as the economy got even more worse, the people lost jobs, housing, houses, education deteriorated, Michigan Promise scholarships were taken back by the administration. All this fraom a guy that proposed a lot of things but never came through on anything. All the things he claimed Bush did, he continued. Especially the defecit which he racked up and continues to increase and spend. Things that he claimed Bush did was 'unpatriotic' and 'irresponsible'. He has only increased the defecit much larger than the previous administration and in less time along with increasing the unemployment in much less time. While adding all that burden of defecit on the backs of our children, he continued to play golf, go on expensive vacations, and instead of taking care of foreign problems, he went on the Letterman show ignoring Netanyahu, and the di;lomats in Benghazi. That is what we have to show for a disgraceful president! It is time to make America proud again!
