AMERICA’S BIG SOLUTION
by Addison Riddleberger * 02/05/2016
This was first piblished on ConservativeTribune – James Anderson, a native of Talladega, Alabama, wrote a letter to the editor several years ago that went viral almost instantly. And while it’s been around for a while, it’s begun going viral again, perhaps as the 2016 presidential election starts to heat up.
Anderson gave 12 reasons why he voted Democrat, apparently in reference to the 2012 election. Here they are:
- I voted Democratic because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I now may marry my Labrador.
- I voted Democratic because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4 percent on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15 percent isn’t.
- I voted Democratic because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.
- I voted Democratic because freedom of speech is fine as long as I agree with what is said and nobody else is offended by it.
- I voted Democratic because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.
- I voted Democratic because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in 10 years if I don’t start driving a Prius.
- I voted Democratic because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.
- I voted Democratic because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the Social Security from those who paid into it.
- I voted Democratic because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.
- I voted Democratic because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.
- I voted Democratic because I think that it’s better to pay billions for their oil to people who hate us but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, spotted owl, gopher or fish.
- I voted Democratic because my head is so firmly misplaced toward the south end of my body, it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.

On Wednesday, February 3, Dinesh D’Souza went head-to-head with the radical Bill Ayers on the University of Michigan campus on the topic “What’s so exceptional about America?” The debate went on for over an hour and a half. In this short clip, transcript below, you will watch D’Souza slam unrepentant Weather Underground co-founder and Obama buddy, Bill Ayers on his past – much to the audience’s delight. You will find a link to the entire debate at the end of this post.
Moderaror: Given your own personal experiences, why do either of you feel our criminal
justice system has become too political?
Ayers: Our political justice system is a catastrophe. Um, it’s a catastrophe and it’s, um and, and and what was exposed in Ferguson that the criminal justice system is kind of powered, that the financing of it is powered by the kind of targeting of poor people. That’s true in Ferguson it’s true in Chicago. One of my sons is a public defender in San Francisco. He deals with poor people every day, who are run through the system for the most petty things, and they absolutely are caught up in um, you know, in a vise that really steals from them and, and kind of purrs along in an oppressive way. So I think our criminal justice system is catastrophic and needs to be dramatically changed. One of these, I think is also catastrophic in it, is that is that the political system is something that’s now for sale, it’s on the auction block and Dinesh referred to his time in custody, were you in custody, I’m not sure he had a…
D’Souza: Overnight custody.
Ayers: He had an assistant dropped him off at his sleeping quarters overnight. I offered to write him a letter to the judge asking him not to put Dinesh in prison, he turned it down because I was going to advocate that he go to North Carolina and register voters which would fit the crime of, of corrupting the political process in New York. But no, I think the criminal justice is deeply corrupt and, and it’s corrupted by politics.
D’Souza: OK. (audience laughs) the inequity of our criminal justice system is on full display right on this podium right here. So I gave $20,000 of my own money over the campaign finance limit, I got eight years, eight months in overnight confinement.
Ayres: 8 months or 8 years?
D’Souza: 8 months.
Ayers: You said 8 years.
D’Souza: You bombed the Pentagon, and tried to bomb all kinds of other things (loud audience laughter and applause)…
Ayers: (to the audience) What are you cheering for?
D’Souza: How much time, how much time did you do in the slammer?
Ayers: No the fact is that you admitted to committing a felony which you did. And it was a felony that was pretty serious in a democracy which was an attempt to buy an election to buy an election (audience boos).
D’Souza: Alright, right about the time my case was going to the court, another fellow named (name unintelligible), another Asian Indian guy, we, we Asian Indians appear to specialize in campaign finance violations, (audience laughs) but anyway, this guy gave a hundred and eighty grand in straw donations to Hillary Clinton and a whole group of Democrats. He was also found guilty of witness tampering and he boasted about corruption. He goes before a judge in New York, a federal judge, no prison, no confinement. So here’s my point: Yes justice is a matter of did you break the law. But it’s also a matter of does the penalty fit the crime. Do other guys who do the same thing get roughly the same offence under the Obama administration. I will say that Progressive justice is a complete sham. It’s an oxymoron.

In her Tuesday night interview of donor-class favorite Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Fox News’s Megyn Kelly gushed over the young Senator’s ability to deliver a memorized speech without a teleprompter.
However, throughout the interview, Kelly failed to ask the candidate a single substantive question about his desire to enact the open-borders trade and immigration policies endorsed by Fox News’s founder Rupert Murdoch. Instead, Kelly began her interview with Marco Rubio by playing a clip of Rush Limbaugh praising Rubio as a conservative, in spite of Rubio’s push for open borders.
Kelly then asked Rubio these hard-hitting questions:
Let’s start with Rush Limbaugh’s comment, do you agree that you are no moderate centrist?
One of your competitors took a shot at you today, Gov. Chris Christie, who is really hoping to perform better in New Hampshire than he did in Iowa… do you take offense to that, sir, him calling you ‘a boy, a boy in a bubble’?
He says you’re too scripted. You are very smooth. Your acceptance– well, not acceptance [speech]– but your remarks last night were amazing. You were so articulate. There was no teleprompter. To those who say, ‘Oh he’s scripted’– is that scripted or is that just how you talk?
So now that you’re—you know— we got the marco-mentum, as they call it, you know who’s going to come after you both guns blazing. His name starts with D, his last name starts with T. And you’re going to be right in the middle of the cross-hairs for him now that you’re giving him a run for his money. How are you going to handle Donald Trump’s attacks on you?
Do you think it’s time for Jeb Bush to drop out?
What is winning for you in New Hampshire?
Kelly also added: “I will vouch for you — that you have come on the Kelly File regularly and you always sit for the tough questions. And I’ll note for the record, you never complain, never once — even if we ask really tough questions, which I appreciate.”
Noticeably, Kelly’s “tough questions” in last night’s interview did not include a single mention of his support for globalist immigration and trade policies. Below are some questions Kelly did not ask Rubio: Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Tax Day April 15th 2009, I attended my first Tea Party event held on the front lawn of the State House in Columbus, Ohio. Only a couple of months into the Obama administration, the Tea Party movement was in its infancy. At the time, it did not even have an official name. But it was a Tea Party event nonetheless with hundreds of people congregating in a chilly Ohio rain to listen to, among others, then-aspiring Gov. John Kasich speak. As with a number of similar type events that I attended subsequent to that, it was marked by patriotism and a sense of optimism as conservative-minded folks came together to make their dissatisfaction with the state of the nation known to their elected officials and to those seeking office. With a crowd of this size, it is safe to assume that there was a wide range of ideologies present that day. But everyone in attendance had one thing in common: A sense of pride in the concept of American exceptionalism.
Fast forward seven years to 2016. We find ourselves in the very early stages of the presidential nominating process. Many Americans are no less dissatisfied with the status quo now than they were in 2009. But a once-united Tea Party initiative dedicated to taking back America from the progressive elitists that had assumed power has devolved into several different factions all purporting to be “conservative”. No longer is the Tea Party a united movement. We now have a group of Donald Trump supporters who are convinced that it’s Trump’s way or the highway. Like their candidate, they feel as if they can bully non-believers into supporting their guy. Similarly, we have the supporters of Ted Cruz who claim to be “real” conservatives. They seem to be nearly as belligerent but in a “religious”, almost sanctimonious, sort of way. Then there are the fans of Marco Rubio who feel that their guy is the most electable of all of the GOP candidates. All three candidates have qualities that appeal to certain segments of the electorate. Likewise, all three have attributes with which many conservatives take exception.

With just hours left to go before Iowa caucus goers cast their votes, living legend and conservative icon Phyllis Schlalfy warns Iowa voters: 2016 may be America’s last chance.
“Our immigration policy has been anti-American, decade after decade, and the voters need to know that 2016 might be our last chance to elect a president who can reduce this tide of illegals crossing our borders,” Schlafly writes in a column set to run tomorrow, an exclusive copy of which was given to Breitbart News.
Schlalfy’s op-ed heavily cites Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), thought leader for the nation-state philosophy. The conservative heroine writes: “Our nation’s sovereignty depends on control of both immigration and trade, and that’s why Senator Sessions urges voters to choose a candidate who promises to kill the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal with nearly a dozen Asian nations.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.
Gov. Greg Abbott and U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Laredo Democrat, pressed the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Monday to explain why the agency plans to reduce its aerial surveillance on the Texas-Mexico border.
In a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, the lawmakers said the cut to a requested 3,850 hours of aerial detection and monitoring in 2016 amounts to 50 percent less coverage than recent years (bold type, mine).
“Given the recent surge of migrants from Central America and Cuba along the southern border, we believe DHS should request more surveillance and security resources, not fewer,” Abbott and Cuellar wrote in a letter.
The pair also reminded Johnson that in September, Abbott’s office asked the DHS for more aerial resources and U.S. Border Patrol agents but that the request was never acknowledged.
A DHS spokesperson said the agency would respond “directly” to the governor and the congressman.
Monday’s request comes as CBP is reporting a new surge in the number of undocumented immigrants crossing the Rio Grande. From October to December of 2015, about 10,560 unaccompanied minors entered Texas illegally through the Rio Grande Valley sector of the U.S. Border Patrol. That marks a 115 percent increase over the same time frame in 2014. The amount of family units, defined as at least one child and adult guardian or parent, has increased by 170 percent to 14,336 in the Rio Grande Valley. Continue reading at texastribune.org.
