I’m enlisting to fight in Andrew Breitbart’s war. The political class in Washington has degraded America. Republicans and Democrats blame each other, and nothing gets done. The media exacerbates the problem, fans the flames and encourages false notions of “civility” and “objectivity” while pushing “bipartisanship” that doesn’t actually solve problems. While this charade perpetuates indefinitely, America grows weaker. She’s digging herself deeper into debt and isn’t even searching for solutions to her problems. Entitlements and government overspending gets worse every day while laws go unenforced
We all need join in whatever way we can. There are millions of is. It´s hard to take time for rallies, marches, town hall meetings, etc. but things have gotten so bad that we have to rekindle the passion the Tea Party had in 2009. I went to Washington and it was so inspirational. We need to demand town hall meetings all over this country and explain to our congressmen and senators who they work for.
Cut the guy a little slack, he was only 21 in ´08. "If you´re not a liberal when you´re 25, you have no heart. If you´re not a conservative by the time you´re 35, you have no brain." So the kid is ahead of the curve.
Like Andrew and Saul on the road to Damascus, this author witnessed the TRUTH first hand and vows to fight the fight to expose the evil. It´s even better that he´ll pick up Andrew´s sword and go after those on both sides of the political spectrum who are corrupting the institutions of our government and culture.
It´s all about our inalienable rights and those who are determined to smother those rights by forcing big government into every crevasse of our lives. Our liberty comes from God. That´s why we must all pick up our swords and get back in the fight to protect it and save it from the political class.

I´ll cut him some slack for the Obama vote when he was 21....Afterall, I voted fro Ross Perot when I was 31. I cast that vote in hopes of waking up the Republican Party. It didn´t work, and we all suffered for such stupidity.
I shake my head at his 2008 vote, but considering the ´discussions´ ahead of him when he speaks to his peers, I´d say his punishment will be excessive. One thing about a reformed person, they are often more passionate and articulate about a subject after they´ve turned, so go nuts Matt. You will face the most willfully stupid people on the planet.
Give the kid a break. Like many others who made a mistake with a first vote for Obama, we need them to awaken and join us if we are to avoid another Obama.
The author’s lesson (and many others’ lesson) should be that vote is a powerful thing and should never be issued lightly. Those who voted for Obama have grievously injured their country, and that is not a trifling thing. It is something to be deeply ashamed of, with a vow to never do so again.
The media worked diligently to pull the wool over the eyes of anyone who didn’t read carefully and widely, and their sin, unlike that of the naïve, is intentional and unforgivable, if not downright treasonous.
But the author’s epiphany should be acknowledged, and his joining ranks with Brietbart should be celebrated. We’ll need him and more like him to win our country back.
I´m guessing that in 2008 he was ignorant, but not stupid. The stupid ones are all still right behind hussein. Don´t forget: Reagan was formerly a Democrat AND a union man. We´re all human. Well, not obama. He is Lucifer´s terminator.
Let us hope he really has learned this lesson and doesn´t do an about face when the media and Chicago thug political machine trot out their next messiah. Let us also hope that there are many other 20-something professionals out there who are thinking the same thoughts and feeling just as used and abused by the DC "politics as usual" machine.
The truth is... regardless of who wins, the DC political system and all it´s scurrying minions profit. The system is and has been broke for a long time.
Most of us only voted ONCE this past election. Thats why we lost. The other side found ways to count the dead, to count dogs and cats, and to count votes TWICE. Dont belive me? Then YOU are part of the problem, because VOTER FRAUD is why we lost...just ask that smirking chimp George Soros, he´ll ´splain it to ya.
#s 3 and 4: Without repentance (turning back to the right direction) and reconciliation (welcoming back after straying) it will take generations just to restore parity between left and right. Besides, converts are often the most ardent and articulate defenders of their side, whether in faith or in politics.
Welcome back, Matthew. I threw my first vote away on Dukakis, went Libertarian in 1992, and was reborn Conservative in 1993.
Every governmental model has its own serious shortcomings (and for those who care, every model we know is contrary to the Gospel in its own assortment of ways). But big-government socialism is among the most oppressive.
Sorry, but never before in America´s history has there been a bigger, more dangerous and distructive mistake than Obama. So those of us who have also sinned (made a similar mistake) did not sin as much.
Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
