Self Made

The correlation’s between 1979 and 2011 are more than just a little eerie..

The intentional destruction of America under Carter was impressive, the intentional destruction of America under OWEbama has made the warty little homunculus from Georgia seem like a progressive piker..

The WORLD NEEDED Reagan in 1980.

The WORLD NEEDS him again in 2012..

Unfortunately, this time around, he is nowhere to be found..

In 1979, Reagan was truly in the right place at the right time. There is no twenty-first century replacement for him just when one is needed.

Reagan became “fashionable” in 1979. The thing was, he had been saying the SAME things for well over twenty years. His beliefs weren’t altered by the prevailing winds of things like “polls” and the abuse ladled on by the ever “impartial” media.

Today’s “Republicans” seem to trip over things like “health care”, “immigration” and so many other topics, one moment “for”, the next “against”.. Reagan was “self-made”, today’s alleged replacements seem to be mere scientific experiments hastily assembled by the RNC..

The WORLD does not need “OWEbama Lite”. The WORLD again needs another Reagan. The Republicans have had YEARS to try to find one.

It’s unfortunate that we will just have to make do with what we get..

  1. Family,

    My best wishes for a very Happy New Year to the entire NLTZ family and I would like to make a toast:

    Here is to the “hope” for some REAL “change” come November..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  2. Your TOTD was right on and underscores problems we have in our Republic. It seems no man can stand alone on his own merits and convictions. All politicians are now making flip-flops so fast it is impossible to remember what was said two hours ago. The reason Reagan was popular? He was a man of his word and not just saying anything to get good “press”. As my dad put it, say what you mean, and mean what you say. Today’s Republicans are so untrustworthy we wander in the dark regarding their platform. The platform seems to be made of Balsa wood or sticky notes when a change in the wind can totally reset the platform. Before we can find a Reagan to lead the nation, we need to find a party to lead and guide today’s Conservatives, Republicans and Independents to unite under one solid platform and stand against the Liberals and all their misdirections and Constitutional rape and pillage.

    Happy New Year to all and may this year be the year the Republicans get a spine!

  3. We need a Ronald Reagan, and there isn’t anybody even remotely close to him as a man or a leader in the bunch of Repubs we have. Romney, I just don’t trust, and Gingrich has a lot of ideas, some of which scare me as much as what Obama has in mind for us. I like Ron Paul’s ideas on finances, and how to clean up Washington, and the Fed, his ideas if acted upon would supercharge the economy, but this would happen only if we could get supermajorities in both Houses, and that ain’t gonna happen.

    While I like the idea of a Third Party candidacy, there’s nobody out there whom could get elected. Trump might be able to, but he’s also as likely to siphon off enough votes to ensure four more years of Obama. I like the fact he’s speaking openly the things most of us have said privately for years, but would he be able to govern if elected? A third party presidency would have to build a coalition in order to govern, rather like they do in Canada and Great Britain, only our politicians don’t know how to do it, and certainly would not be game to try.

  4. I think Rick Perry comes the closest, but he has some problems.He is strong on the 2Nd & 10Th amendments. Our economy is very strong. He has more foreign policy experience than any other, except possibly Romney. He has done more here to secure the border than the federal government. He is not afraid of others in government including the POUS. It is sorry that no matter who the Republican nominee is we have to support him/her.

    ANYBODY will beat obama. I once said that I would vote for anybody but obama, Ron Paul has changed my mind.
    I hope the voter fraud that put obama in the White House in 2008 is not able to succeed in 2012.
    Happy New Year to all and I hope the November elections give us an incredibly Happy New Year in 2013.

  6. Richard,

    I believe that the process for higher office seems to involve trying to acquire EVERY vote. Thus the need to “change” in front of the next “special interest” group..

    We should not bend our convictions in order to acquire votes. The voters should be smart enough to understand the difference between right and wrong, or right and left..

    Perhaps I am giving too much credit..

    Happy New Year,

    Larry

  7. G.,

    This seems to prove the shortsightedness of the Repubs.

    They had a front row seat for Reagan, now it seems as though he didn’t even win elected office..

    Happy New Year,

    Larry

  8. Graywolf,

    The talk of “third parties” always sounds intriguing, but in the end, they never amount to much.

    A “third party” would be icing on the OWEbama cake unfortunately.

    I just wonder where the “Party of Reagan” went..

    Happy New Year,

    Larry

  9. Anaheim Dave,

    THIS was the scenario involving John McCain. After the amazing hack-job done by the “impartial” media upon W., ANYONE other than a Republican would win.

    Ron Paul is the Republican Kucininch. One moment lucid, the next seeing flying saucers and moon men..

    ANY third party canididate will be nothing more than “Perot Redux”. Almost EVERY vote for will take away from the Repub candidate and therefore, another for OWEbama and the liberal economic abortionists.

    Happy New Year,

    Larry

  10. Larry, I am 100% against a third party. Perot elected Clinton, and we can not afford another term of Obummer. I just do not think the voters are dumb enough to vote for Paul, with his foreign policy ideas. Maybe after the country is straightened out there might be a need for a third party, but there are HUGH problems with that scenario. Our system worked well for over 100 years until the progressives started thier take over with Wilson or possibly before.

  11. I’ve been saying this for years that we need another Reagan to give major change in Washington, DC, remove the corruption. The liberal media is up to their old games by claiming Obama will win. What he and they did in 2008 was perpetuate the myth that he was going to win, no matter what you and you better get on board. That’s what the volunteers were told as Hillary backed out. They transferred her employees, supporters and volunteers to Obama. Then, he lied to them by doing his own polling and pretended that he was way up in the polls, the same ones he paid for, that he would beat Hillary but her numbers were higher than his Did she get something like 18%. The poll was too close to call, but he lied to all of them. I have no problem disregarding any of the current polls because he most likely is paying for them and/or with tax dollars from us.

    He has got to be the sleaziest, most disgusting politician in a long time. I am expecting the worst to happen in the next 11 months because that’s what Obama history shows us. There is no hope, we’ve been robbed by our crooked politicians and with the names bantered about, I see no Reagan as well and that saddens me. Reagan’s success was that he, number one believed in what he was saying and followed through with what he said.

    My dad and I have this thing that we say when something happens that’s political in nature. WWRD what would Reagan Do? I know we would not be in this mess that Obama has taken this Country too the brink of failure. I don’t think we would be in this mess if Reagan or a like-Reagan leader would be taking us to brink of high unemployment, have a worthless economy, and have the Country be downgraded to numbers that match Europe fiscal insanity. Reagan was a fiscal conservative and I cannot image he would have allowed a Reagan Healthcare system be put in place that favors the government than the people.

    Ronald Reagan was friends with John McCain and Reagan put his trust in him to do the right thing. Their friendship hit hard times when he divorced his first wife to marry his second wive. It was that relationship that made me vote for McCain in 2008. I know that Newt Gingrich knew Reagan and at that time he believed the same things that Reagan did, what I don’t know was he supporting Reagan for political points or if he really did agree with Reagan. Reagan gave us hope in 1980 and I wish we had someone to give that back to us. When Reagan said hope and change in DC, we could count that there would be hope and change for the better not for the worse that Obama has done.

  12. Graywolf,

    I believe the progressiveness started with the first term of Grover Cleveland. He was a liberal thinker. Cleveland was the leader of the pro-business Bourbon Democrats who opposed high tariffs, Free Silver, inflation, imperialism and subsidies to business, farmers or veterans. His battles for political reform and he was by all accounts, a fiscal conservative, which made him an icon for American conservatives of the era. Cleveland won praise for his honesty, independence, integrity, and commitment to the principles of classical liberalism. Cleveland relentlessly fought political corruption, patronage, and bossism. Indeed, as a reformer his prestige was so strong that the reform wing of the Republican Party, called “Mugwumps”,(sounds like something from Harry Potter than American politics) largely bolted the GOP ticket and swung to his support in 1884.

    Teddy Roosevelt was also a progressive. I think it was these two who started the progressive/liberalism in this Country and each time the Country elected a Democrat, we were bombarded by the progressiveness/liberalism at it’s worth when Wilson was elected. I don’t know much about Taft and have no idea what his platform was about but his failure to get elected to a two term brought about the start of full on progressiveness when Wilson got elected. He started the decline into madness and his fiscal failures started the decline into the Great Depression. Harding cleaned up parts in Washington and turned the economy around but he died too early in his second year. After his death, Coolidge became President.

  13. Unfortunately when many of us go to the polls this year we will have to hold our nose when we ‘pull the lever’.

  14. The District of Corruption is not about to change any time soon,
    and, the stupid voters are still here. In spite of the destruction that this administration has caused, Owebama still has strong support.

    If the GOP candidates don’t stop attacking each other, Owebama will have a good shot at re-election.

    We need public servants, not politicians.

    It will be an interesting year !
