I saw the Obama ad last night on TV calling Romney a liar and saying he really does have a $5 trillion tax cut. And it uses NBC News with Andrea Mitchell quoting that debunked study to substantiate the claim.

But Romney isn’t taking it sitting down. He’s fighting back in a new ad pointing out that Obama is “distorting” his economic plans and the ad ends by telling the viewer that Obama is raising taxes on the middle class by $4,000.

    You gotta love a fighter! I’m glad Mitt is fighting fire with fire!

    As long as these liars keep getting called out and exposed, there’s hope for a change in the WH.

      I still think it’s going to be a blow-out unless something goes bad for Romney. The polls are rigged.

        The Right Scoop Friends: I agree with 95% of what is said here and hope we do have a Romney blowout (but I’ll take a win of any size). We are mostly staunch conservatives and support almost all we see here. But just as much as we believe in conservatism and the truth it reveals, the ‘other side’ , probably mostly liberals and progressives, are just as adamant in their beliefs.

        Go to any non-conservative website or facebook and scroll down and look at the comments. They are all drinking the Obama Koolaid and have bought into the lies that Obama and the MSM tell them. I am astounded that so many people support Obama. I know quite a few intelligent and successful people and I can’t believe that they just regurgitate the MSM propaganda in their own words. I’m not talking about those foul mouth arrogant ones on the attack prowl, but those who quite coherently support him. I agree with what Romney said at the debate that if you tell a lie long enough (like this $5 Trillion story) many tend to accept it as truth. The Democrats and liberals are masters at that.

        It’s so disheartening to see your friends and family members STILL believe in Obama even after four years of failure. I appeal to their intelligence and counsel them to make an informed decision and suggest that to do that they MUST at least look at the conservative side. I direct them here. I’m hoping their eyes will be opened to the real truth of who Obama is and what he is doing and they will change their vote. We must ALL actively engage in spreading the truth outside of this blog if we are to get rid of Obama. We all agree on the principles expounded here…we must let others know the truth.

        • kong1967

          I only know a few Obama supporters, and most of the people I know can’t stand him. My boss is one of them, a lifelong Democrat, and he hates Obama. I have tried engaging in conversations about what’s going on with those few Obama supporters, but they don’t want to hear it. One guy just repeatedly cut me off and wouldn’t even let me tell him the conservative point of view. However, that same guy approached me (with a smile on his face) the other day and when I asked him “what?” he told me that Romney killed Obama in the debate.

          In my opinion, there’s no reaching the drones. Most of them aren’t smart enough to understand the conservative point of view. They believe that if you don’t throw out welfare like candy you are mean spirited and don’t give a crap for the poor. If you want the rich to pay less in taxes then you want the middle class to pay the tax bill. They do not understand that taxing the rich impacts the middle class in a negative way. A healthy, rich businessman creates more middle class jobs that pay more….but they don’t understand that. It’s going to take growth in their mind to ever get it. Most never will. Being so, I usually ignore them now unless they start the conversation.

            Excellent comment, Kong. I believe you’ve stated the problem very well.

              • Orangeone

                I face them too. I have one in particular that works for a client of mine. I looked at her and ask if she wanted her boss to pay more taxes and create less jobs. She said no, he needs to hire someone to help her. My response, the gov’t will make him pay more because he is “rich” and she can go without help and it’s her vote that is the direct cause. She was dumbfounded.

                • kong1967

                  At least you made her stop and think about it. You confused her, lol.

                  Her employer can hire help but would have to raise the price of their service or the goods they provide. Then it translates into less business, less profits. Either way, she gets no help.

                • Orangeone

                  Price fixed industry, no ability to raise prices.

                  No one really knows what will happen when all of the employers raise prices to cover O’BambiTaxCare.

                  Maybe not, but I can guess. Bad for the economy, but I decided to leave out the details.

                  Just a guess, but I can see businesses dropping coverage and causing a domino effect among competitors.

                • keep_it_Civil

                  The problem here is assuming that more money in rich people’s pockets translates into them putting it back into the economy–and not in a Cayman Islands account. For example, what happens if her boss gets a tax break and decides to just pay himself more, instead of hiring help for her? Greed is a powerful thing. There are no assurances that this extra money for rich people would actually go toward the economy. There aren’t any stipulations on how people/companies can use these funds. So, should we assume that they would naturally hire more people rather than put more money into their own pockets? I guess what would make them hire more people would be the prospect of making more wealth for themselves. Is that the premise here? Trust in rich people and business owners to try to make themselves richer, and hope that they think they can do it by hiring more workers and not by simply pocketing the tax savings.

                • Orangeone

                  The profits do not belong to the gov’t. The business owner receives no tax benefit to pocket the profits, only by utilizing cash on hand to expand and hire.

                • keep_it_Civil

                  It seems that many companies pocket the profits (through large salaries, bonuses, and other pay-outs) whether there is a tax benefit to do so or not. If this is not so, how has ever greater wealth been amassed by such a small percentage of our citizens? What could make a larger portion of this wealth instead be diverted to expanding and hiring?

                  I’m sorry. I truly don’t see how giving wealthy people a tax break helps the middle class. I just don’t believe it would result in more jobs. Currently wealthy people already have the resources to create more jobs, if they have it in them. I think a tax break for them would result in a richer group of rich people. I’ve gone round and round and read and read. I have truly tried to understand, but I think I have to give this point to the Democrats.

                • Orangeone

                  First, I don’t agree that wealth in this country is restricted to a few.  If you look at something solid over the decades like home ownership, you will see that home values have skyrocketed and a significant percentage of people own them.  Second, assets like homes and cars, stock, retirment accounts, IRAs, pensions and 401(k) accounts are omitted from “wealth calculations”. If you add those in to the liquid cash accounts, wealth is actually more prevalent.
                  Because of good regulation like Sarbanes, public company CEO & CFO salaries are subject to tax deduction limits and bonus restrictions. That’s a good thing and resulted in more money remaining with those companies. Whistleblowers inside the company are also protected if they report illegal activity to the authorities.  Romney wants to overturn this and I agree with you, I support the Democrat’s and Libertarians’ position here because executives will benefit and employees and stockholders will lose again.
                  We also experienced the technology boom that was capitalized on by a few at the expense of many because the regulations we have today to protect shareholders investments and Executive Compensation were not in place.
                  The financial scandals of 2000-2002 also destroyed the retirement accounts of tens of thousands of employees and hundreds of thousands invested in the stock market.  A loophole was found when it was discovered stock brokers and dealers were scamming investors and that regulation was implemented within Dodd-Frank but that legislation goes a bit far afield with things unrelated to financial management.
                  Then you get the ponzi guys Bernard Madoff ($50 billion) and Tom Petters ($3 billion) who stole billions from innocent investors and spent it or in other ways pilfered it.
                  When you raise tax rates on small business (from 30% to 43.4%) the money is taken from the company by the gov’t.   Business owners will stop earning more than their expenses, won’t expand and won’t hire.
                  For example, if a business has $100,000 in annual profit and is taxed in the US at 43.4% then $43,400 is taken by the gov’t. Compare this to 15% in Canada or $15,000.  The difference is a part-time employee.

                • keep_it_Civil

                  To clarify, I expressed that “greater” wealth is in the hands of a few. To make your point, you kind of generalized, plus employed harsher language with your word choice of “restricted.”

                  Also, thank you for your post regarding corporate taxes. I get it. What about the proposed tax breaks for private individuals, regardless of income. How will giving wealthy people a tax break help the middle class? Doesn’t this just make rich people richer?

                • Orangeone

                  Part of the political spin is that wealth is restricted to a few, wasn’t trying to point towards you but others reading this post as well.  The tradeoff of a lower tax rate and eliminating deductions at the highest earner level is wise.  Let’s use the example of a billionaire like Warren Buffet.  To encourage Buffet to mortgage a home and benefit from the interest paid on that mortgage removes the capital from the lending market and makes the remaining capital available for loaning more expensive.  That drives up the interest rate on your mortgage.  By eliminating the deduction there is no incentive for the very wealthy to unnecessarily borrow which will open the availability for broader lending at lower rates.
                  Let’s talk about investing funds in another country.  Let’s say for example I have $100,000 that I’d like to deposit in a bank in Latin America.  First, it’s legal.  Second, I must pay income tax on the interest earned in that account.  No harm to the US because tax revenue is still reported and paid.  But what it does allow is that Latin American bank to loan my funds to a business that then could choose to purchase American goods and expand trade.
                  Businesses from outside of the US also trade on our stock exchanges.  That allows US citizens to invest in those companies through the purchase of that stock.  Diversification is good because you never know what could happen. We had a severe meltdown with the financial scandals in 2000-2002 with major losses in our stocks but the losses were partially offset by foreign investments. The same holds true with countries like Greece, Spain, Ireland that have all received bailouts.  A major part of the reason the EU has not collapsed is because of diversity of investment.
                  Does this help?

              • librtifirst

                I work for an indian tribe, and they support democrats. We actually have a strict policy at work that prohibits conversations at work about politics and religion. I was reprimanded for it about twelve years ago. Most people I work with are pretty conservative though, and it isn’t hard to project an attitude about politics without blatantly breaking company policy.

                With that said, I think that most people are generally ignorant of the realities of politics in this country.

          • PVG

            Well stated! This is what we reap when liberalism took over our education system. Liberal propaganda has been brain washing 3 generations. Most have no argument or facts to defend their beliefs and no understanding of conservatism.

            • kong1967

              Fixing the education system and stopping the liberal indoctrination is going to be a very difficult and necessary step. The first step, in my opinion, is getting rid of the federal Department of Education and letting the states keep the money to run their own schools. Having to filter the money through the feds puts the states at the mercy of the federal gubmint, and in order to get the money back they are forced to follow the liberal agenda. Comply or go without the money…..which is the state taxpayers’ money to begin with.

                Good call. I’d add that teachers should be re-assessed yearly and if they are failing the class. OUT! And a new teacher is employed. No more sitting on the fat a$$ failing the kids and drawing a pay check you don’t deserve.

                • kong1967

                  Agreed, but it has to be on the teachers’ performance, not based entirely off the grades the students get. Judge the methods and efforts the teacher uses to reach the kids. The problem with using grades is “community” matters. Some teachers have it easy because the community is involved and the kids go to learn. In other communites, particularly the liberal inner city, the parents couldn’t give a crap and many of the students are in gangs and don’t go to school to learn. I feel for those teachers because nothing they do will make much of a difference. Parents and the community mean a lot.

                • Wisewoman2

                  You are so right. Things were beginning to sour in 1971 where I taught in the inner city of Chicago for 2 years. I taught 8th and 9th grade math. Even then the kids were in gangs. They ran 2 teachers off before October of that school year. The principal was reluctant to hire me because I was a woman and he felt that I could not maintain class discipline. Because I got my training in the south he “took a chance” on me. The first day of homeroom one child bought a stack of 45 records to school. I announced to the clas that the owner of the records needed to put them away. As I was writing on the chalkboard someone threw a record and it missed my head and ear by less than an inch. I turned around and asked who threw the record. I immediately changed my question and told the class to never ever tell me who threw the record no matter how many times I asked publicly or in private, never, ever tell me who did it because I would despise that person for the rest of my life. I told the owner to get his records and put them up. I turned back to the chalkboard. Phew, another record missed my ear by a hair. I kindly walked to the back of the room and took the stack of records and brought them to the front of the class. The owner was pleading that he did not throw the record. I did not say a word but preceded to individually drop each record on the floor and use my high heels to break each and every one of them. From that day forward I had little trouble with the class although 3 young men seemed to hate me. Later in the year I helped raise money and chaperoned them on a school trip to DC. The principle, teachers, and many in the community told me I was crazy to try to take a bunch of ghetto kids to DC. I used that as a motivational tool by telling the kids what everyone was saying. I then told them that they were going to prove everyone wrong. We had a wonderful trip without incident. Now 31 years later I couldn’t imagine doing what I did in 1971.

                • kong1967

                  Wow, now you had some balls (no offense)!! You sound like you were a fantastic teacher (or are you still teaching?), and discipline is a very important part of being able to do your job. Unfortunately schools are making it impossible for teachers to discipline students any more. If they don’t get it at home it’s a recipe for a child going down the wrong path.

                  Have you ever seen the movie “The Principal”? It can be a very rough and dangerous environment to teach in the inner city. It’s sad how the kids grow up that way, and it’s the environment that shapes them. I don’t know how you fix it, but I believe the first step would be to stop the liberals from running the big cities into the ground.

                  By the way, math was my strong suit. I believe it’s the SAT tests that you take before you go to college (sorry, it’s been a lot of years)? I finished in the top 2% in the country and I hadn’t even given it a previous effort in high school. Trig and Calculus were a breeze, and Calculus was the best class I’ve ever taken. It’s amazing what you can do, and how many pages of calculations you can condense down to a few short lines. In Trig there were 50 students and I finished #1 with over 100% through the course. In Calculus there were 45 students and I finished #2….I don’t remember the percentage but it was very high.

                  Sorry, I had to brag since it was your area of expertise. :)

                  EDIT: Additonally, you were supposed to only miss 3 classes before you were kicked out. I missed 20 in Calculus and the teacher left me alone. It was too easy.

                • Wisewoman2

                  No I am no longer teaching. I actually have a MS in Chemistry and a minor in math. Loved all the math except calculus but I did OK in it. I taught 8th & 9th grade math in 71 & 72 in Chicago, moved back to MS to get my Masters in chemistry, taught 10th grade geometry in 73 then left the profession for private industry in my field. Didn’t see the movie you cited but one of my favorites was “Lean on Me” which depicted an inner city school with all its problems and some successes. The truth of the matter is that I would be afraid to go back in the classroom. Afraid not for myself but for the kids since I am an old fashioned person. When I was teaching another thing I would do was to call the parents of each and every student in my classes at the beginning of each school year. I called as many as 150 parents. My thing was to introduce myself as their child’s math teacher and let them know I wanted their child to succeed. I told them I would work as hard as I knew how to make that happen. I asked them to assist me and help me by making sure their child was in school ready to learn, that he understood he needed to obey rules, get his homework in and study hard. I told them if I had any trouble with their child they would be the first person I would call and with a partnership we could both contribute to their child’s success. Frankly they were impressed and for the vast majority of them I was also impressed even with the ones who did not appear to be well educated. We got the school year off to an excellent start.

                • kong1967

                  You were definitely a good great teacher. This is how they need to evaluate the teachers. Base if off things like you were talking about. How much effort is being put into helping the kids instead of just writing on the chalkboard and handing out assignments. Never base it on grades. The teacher can’t be held responsible for a kid’s bad grades. That’s the kid’s responsibility. Of course, unless the teacher is neglecting to teach.

                • Orangeone

                  And they need to pay for their own benefits along with all gov’t employees. Compared to private sector they earn more. I have to pay for my own health insurance, it’s about darn time that they do too.

                • kong1967

                  I agree, and hopefully you include pensions in that, too. I have to save for my own retirement using 401k. They should be no different. There’s no reason why they should be able to work for 20 years and collect a high paying pension for the 30 years following that they didn’t contribute but very, very little to. Pensions are killing the states, and all of those states will look to the federal gubmint to bail them out…which means us. Do matching funds for 401k up to a certain percent, but not higher than the average for what the private sector is doing. No early retirements, either. If you retire early you take the same penalites the rest of us take.

                • Orangeone

                  Great reminder kong. I too have to save for my own retirement.  I hope R Squared increases business owners’ ability to contribute to their 401k and a Roth IRA.  The limits are too low to keep up with inflation and rising prices.
                  Absolutely pensions should be eliminated.  If there is a taxpayer paid match, it should be a direct reduction of their salary.
                  I don’t know about other states but MN has deferred compensation and that is the avenue gov’t employees should use for their retirement, not you and me.

                • kong1967

                  Pardon my ignorance, but what is “deferred compensaton”? I know what it sounds like (compensate later, lol), but not when applied to retirement. What is it when applied to retirement?

                • Orangeone

                  It’s part of your regular compensation that you “defer” receiving, on a tax deferred basis.  So it’s like a 401(k) and you can invest it in different investments and the tax benefits are deferred.

                  I am a conservative teacher who only has 6 years experience and I agree 1,000,000%! Too many kids suffer under teachers who have tenure and year advantage on younger teachers, but many of them have come to hate kids and teaching and are just trying to run out the clock on their retirement. Meanwhile the young teachers who have a spark and love of teaching keep getting bumped out of jobs and have to move on from one school’s low-low kids to the next! Happened to me 4 times in 6 years! It’s rough!

                Totally agree! Additionally, I think the State Governors should follow suit with Gov. Walker in Wisconsin and deny teacher’s unions any bargaining power. (Although, the darn judges just overruled that but I think will be overturned in the higher courts.)

                • kong1967

                  Lol, you added what I forgot to mention but wanted to. We have to stop letting the unions run the schools. I, too, believe that Walker will win in the higher courts.

              • Orangeone

                But the states have to be accountable to the taxpayers. Each time a school referendum comes up I vote no. Why? Because it contains a clause “may be used to”. In other words, bait and switch. Our district has promoted and transfered pedophiles to other schools in the district, yes to the ones that have parents in the dark. That is unacceptable. Teachers’ unions need to be abolished and teachers need to be evaluated objectively and not just by the administration but by ALL taxpayers. I’m tired of paying school district taxes not having any children and then have no say before the school board because I don’t have children. If you want my money, you must listen to my concerns.

          If you noticed, Obama said that line three times, once turning to the camera to talk directly to the people. You are absolutely right.

          However, it may be a waste of time trying to convince the liberals that they are wrong (as you said, go look at their sites). What would convince them is the reality of conservatism working (take for example Wisconsin, and Walker’s work up there). Only after Romney is elected, his plans are instituted and we start our turnaround, will they eventually realize what’s good for them.

          Having said that, what we need to do is concentrate on those 80+ million eligible voters who stayed home last time. Those are the people we can convince prior to the election to get out there and do their civic duty (and help themselves in the process).

          I’ve crunched many numbers in previous threads, and I keep coming up with a landslide. But we still need to make the uninformed aware of everything coming down the pike as far as redistribution, Obamacare, taxes, etc. and they will help us make this the biggest blowout in political history.

          • Betsey_Ross

            I haven’t crunched any numbers, but for a long time I’ve had the feeling that so many, many people not vote for Obama. Call it woman’s intuition, but I feel we are going to be in landslide territory. Romney’s debate just kind of sealed it. All the pollsters are reconfiguring to show him with bigger poll numbers, but they have been there all the time. It’s part of the “game” they play.

            Even if you never pay attention to politics you have to know that things aren’t just going right in this country. Now we see what a disinterested USA does to the rest of the world. Even our enemies can’t believe it. They are starting to attack us and our friends are praying for a Romney victory. Everyone knows many people that lost jobs. Some are still out there looking for them. A relative that graduated in 2010 finally landed a good job after 18 months. Some haven’t found anything. It’s heartbreaking because even the low information people have a feeling that this isn’t right.

            People just can’t wait to get into that voting booth in November.

              You’re right. Things aren’t right. We’re still recovering from a serious recession. It’s a long road. It took this country until the 1940s to recover after 1929’s crash. Will recovery go faster with different policies? It’s hard to say. What everyone agrees on is that no one could have brought our economy back from the near-collapse state we were in to comfortable times in 4 years.

              I’m curious about your comment that Americans are disinterested and that “even our enemies can’t believe it.” How have we shown our disinterest? How have our enemies shown disbelief?

          • librtifirst

            The dependent class is going to be hard to convince concerning conservative ideas. At least the ideas that I have. :) Like Romney said “47%”.

            • Nukeman60

              I know a lot of unemployed people right now who are not satisfied with the status quo. Even those 47% have to buy groceries and gas. All of them pay the same prices due to rising inflation that we do. Even food stamps don’t go as far as they used to.

              Entitlements come in many forms, both wanted and unwanted.

              • librtifirst

                Yeah, and it would not be good to just cut them all off. Most people can’t produce their own food anymore.

                What we really need is more cell phones for people. :)

                • Nukeman60

                  You actually proved my point with your last statement. The people I’m talking about don’t want a free cell phone to solve their problems. They want jobs.

                • librtifirst

                  I was agreeing with you. The cell phone thing was sarcasm. I really don’t think that we can just cut everyone off of food stamps.

                • Nukeman60

                  Oh. Okay.

                  I don’t believe Romney dismissed the 47% in that hidden camera video. I don’t believe all the 47% are part of the ‘dependent class’. There are going to be quite a few of them that vote against Obama.

                  On November 6th, we are going to see a much different picture than has been painted by the Lame Stream Media.

        • BHliberty

          Don’t be discouraged dag! If you have friends and family members that are hell-bent on voting for the current president, then they just don’t get it and I’m not sure you’re going to convince them. The ones you are going to convince are the fence-sitters, you know…the undecideds! They are not as well-informed as you and perhaps, you can give them more insight. Ask them: Are they better off now than they were 4 years ago? Do they know that starting in January, 2013 one of the biggest tax increases is about to kick in thanks to the Democrats and Obama? Do they know that since Obama was elected gas prices went from $1.83 to $3.81 on a national average? Health insurance premiums have risen? Unemployment for full-time jobs is around 11%? The Arab Spring in the Middle East could spew over to the U.S. shores? Do they know that since Obama was elected we now have the biggest deficit in U.S. history? For the first time in American history the Standard & Poor credit was downgraded and is being threatened to be downgraded again, (meaning the cost to borrow will increase costing us all more down the line).

          I could go on and on and the pictue looks pretty grim! This will effect every American and needs to be stopped!

          A very thoughtful post, dagrimwood. It is what I believe myself.

          I believe it is traceable to the fact that the Progressives/Communists took over our Educational system thirty years ago. That is why you find today, professional Americans in many fields, who believe the dogma.

          I have four Sons. Three of them think Obama walks on water. Two are Firefighters and one is an IT manager for a major company. I made sure they knew my political beliefs when they were growing up in our household. It was when they went away to school, that things began to change. My fourth is in high school right now. He believes Obama is barely qualified to drive a garbage truck. Go figure.

          No offense to real garbage truck drivers. I think they make about $28.00 and hour. Not a bad pay scale in this economy.

          • Galatiansch2vs20

            The public schooling system has done their best to take God out of the classroom.

            “If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, I do not know what is going to become of us as a nation. If truth be not diffused, error will be; If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendancy, If the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will; If the power of the Gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end.”

            Daniel Webster

            “Education is useless without the Bible.”

            Noah Webster
            (http://www.cancertutor.com/Quotes/Quotes_Presidents.html source of quotes)

            • keep_it_Civil

              That’s because God doesn’t belong in public education. If you want God there, you need to work on changing the Constitution. We are a nation built on separation of church and state. Public schools are taxpayer-supported and therefore an element of the “state” part of the equation. People who want it differently may choose to homeschool or send their kids to a religious-affiliated school.

              • Galatiansch2vs20

                The line about separation of church and state was in a letter, not in the Constitution nor any of the founding documents.

                It was penned in a letter from Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Association and was meant to underscore preventing the government from interfering with the practice of religion. See the correct scoop about that here:

                http://www.schoolprayerinamerica.info/1separationchurchstate.html

                But according to the above cited article, there was a union that was built on separation of church and state. It was the U.S.S.R.!

                However, the public school system is too far gone with godless and liberal indoctrination at this point, which is why anyone who cares about their children not being taught a bunch of falsehoods, liberalism, and sexual orientation garbage and also cares about the influence other children might have on their own children- other children whose parents don’t care if they are sexually promiscuous or if they smoke and do drugs should take charge of their own children’s education.

                • keep_it_Civil

                  The tone/content of your post suggests that you think the U.S. should be a country with a national religion/orientation. You seek a place that does not accept people of all religions. Your post also indicates that you don’t think separation of church and state is a founding principle of this nation–it is, regardless of where it originated. (Many of the pilgrims came here to flee religious persecution in Europe.) Thanks for your posts. They are enlightening.

                • Galatiansch2vs20

                  I was talking about the foundation and founders of this country and how they founded this country was what made this country the greatest on earth to begin with. And as to your second assertion, I refer you to one of our nation’s ratifiers of our Constitution’s words:

                  “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

                  –The Trumpet Voice of Freedom: Patrick Henry of Virginia, p. iii.
                  (my source of this quote: http://christianity.about.com/od/independenceday/a/foundingfathers_3.htm)

                  I explained to you how Jefferson was writing in a letter to underscore how the government should not interfere with the practice of religion.

                  If you would be willing to read with an open mind something that sheds light on how Thomas Jefferson believed about this topic (the man who penned the letter with the separation of church and state phrase), you might examine the list of actions Thomas Jefferson took as president which proves how he felt about religion’s place in government on this page:

                  http://www.free2pray.info/TJefferson.html

                • keep_it_Civil

                  I interpret the sources/quotes you site in a completely different light. If people of other faiths are afforded freedom of worship here, how can you ask them (as taxpayers) to pay for the teaching of christianity in public schools? Children of non-christian faiths have to learn about the New Testament at public school? That’s not freedom of worship. I agree that the government should not interfere with the practice of religion. I just think that religion should be practiced outside of public schools. The government doesn’t stop people from sending their kids to christian schools or from home schooling them. What is the issue here? Who is stopping people from raising their kids in their own faith? What is it you would like to see different?

                • Galatiansch2vs20

                  I believe the founders believed parents should train up their children in the way they should go. But as to public schools you might look at the early days:
                  http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2201818/posts

                  Here’s just one excerpt:
                  ‘1787

                  Congress passes the Northwest Ordinance which is outlines requirements for governments of new territories so they can qualify for statehood. Article 3 of the Northwest Ordinance directs the people of the territories to establish schools “to teach religion, morality, and knowledge.” Nearly every state admitted to the Union after this has written in their State Constitution wording that the schools are to teach morality and religion and they all use the Bible as the bases for their teachings.’

                  Freedom of worship is not the same as restricting freedom of religious expression in speech in a public setting.

                  The population grew further and further away from God as time passed in our country. While all traces of Christianity have been removed from public education (please watch IndoctriNation for an interesting history on how that came to be), do you know there is plenty of other religious material taught today in public school? There is the religion of humanism being taught and the religion of evolution.

                  Then there are the immoral values being taught children, undermining parents- little kids taught about homosexuality, two mommies or two daddies, and how they might be homosexuals themselves and that’s okay, and they also assume kids are going to have sex and passing out condoms.

                  The Department of Education should be abolished. I actually think there are some restrictions in spots in regards to home schooling which poses a problem.

                  I think the whole current public school system with its own false religion and liberal indoctrinating going on should be scrapped. It should change to all parents who can afford to should be directly paying for their own children’s education at the school of their choice, whether it be a charter school, home school, Christian school, etc.- this would lower the tax burden on property owners who do not have children or have no children in the school system as well as people who do have school-aged children do not have to pay for garbage to be taught to.

                  For those living hand to mouth who cannot afford to educate their children, perhaps there ought to be a small tax to pay for these parents to be given vouchers to have their children educated in the school of their choice. I know I’m dreaming and it would take a miracle. I believe we are living in the last days and Christ will soon be returning for His church. He asks when He returns will he find faith on the earth? I know things have gotten worse and worse in this country as the country has wandered further and further away from God and our Christian heritage as a nation.

    When it comes to Obama, you ain’t seen nothing yet when it comes to taxes. When all of Obamacare kicks in, Americans will get hit with huge tax increases on top of the mandate, which is now considered a tax (at least by the Supreme Court). Then taxes will also have to go sky high to support Obamacare in the future, because you just know costs for that program are going to skyrocket (the Congressional Budget Office already says Obamacare will cost twice as much as the Democrats said it would, and the program hasn’t even been implemented yet). No way around it. If (God forbid) Obama is re-elected, taxes are going to blow up and along with it what’s left of our economy.

      All Romney needs to do is put an ad that asks this: “Given the way O’Bambi is spending campaign funds, what do you think he will do when he gets his hands on yours and is restricted by no one from taking more and more from you until you join the 1 in 6 already living in poverty.” I said that in 2008 when I saw what he was spending.

          THANK YOU for this. I was riding on such a high after the debate, and then that SHIFTY, WORTHLESS president and his media lapdogs tried to create their own false momentum – which of course doesn’t sway ME, not one bit, but I worry about all the undecided droolers out there who will decide the election.

          STILL. Never EVER before have I seen nothing make sense in this campaign, Obama’s bounces, his audience size numbers, his money raising…NONE of it makes sense. So yes, I agree, I think we are in for a landslide, but I won’t rest until January 20 when the door smacks him in the asz on his way out.

          My parents live in California, and they’re conservatives. You just never know…

    I love this ad. I’m glad the Romney team is hitting back at the deceitful ads of Obama and company. We have chastised Romney many times for not calling Obama out on his lies in the past. The problem is, Obama lies soooo much that it would bankrupt Romney to make ads countering all of them. That is the reality of it.

    However, it looks like, since the debate, the Romney team has kicked it up a notch and they aren’t going to leave any money sitting in the bank when it’s all over. I like that. I think it can be very effective now that Romney got his message out to the 60+ million who watched the debate.

    The polls, skewed as they have been, are starting to turn as well. The truth, once it gets out, can’t be supressed and that is hurting Obama big time. An America-loving man pitted against a lying, deceitful, narcissistic, wannabe is the matchup that more and more Americans are seeing.

    When NBC starts telling Obama to take a hike, one can only ask, “how much longer will it be before the fall?” Soon, very soon:

    Here is that Story from NBC telling Obama to stop using that Andrea Mitchell footage from the New Lying Obama Ad:

    NBC has asked President Barack Obama’s campaign to stop using the network’s footage in a recently released reelection ad, POLITICO has learned.

    In a letter sent Friday night to Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, NBC told the Obama campaign to cease using network footage in a new 30-second spot, released shortly after Wednesday’s debate, in which Andrea Mitchell is shown on air citing an independent, stating that Mitt Romney’s tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years, a source said.

    While its good that the dumb blonde admits on tv that the $5 trillion propaganda ad isn’t correct, the problem is that they put it out there in the first place. They knew, or had reason to know it wasn’t factually correct. They make up their facts in the same manner as the nyslimes. Whatever is needed to present a perspective deems what facts need to be created for the stated purpose. There was no formal withdrawal of the ad, much less an apology for intentionally lying. And it will never happen.

    Point is, that it got the attention desired. The audience that will regurgitate the contents of the $5 trillion ad will keep repeating it until they believe it 100%. That type of damage cannot be easily undone. Its out there is what matters.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/6TFSBPXVSCDIMIGDESK63L4VKY Michael

      Sorry I disagree….you need to stop thinking you are the only person that can reason and sense a lie. Conservatives need to stop this. If you stepped back and really thought about your answer…Obama should be up 60 to 40….because the MSM has put out horrible stuff about Romney since June? Maybe it is time conservatives GET OFF THIS STUPID NARRATIVE that they are the only ones smart enough.

      You are not…Independents have just as much ability to break things down as you do. Stop getting caught up in the narrative you are so quick to dismiss.

      No yazz putting out a number that is refuted and exposed just makes your campaign look desperate. NBC already told Obama to stop using their footage.

      Walking back makes you look twice as stupid for putting it out there.

      You are wrong it is not out there and NO it does not matter. Your belief that just because someone says it makes it true is Childish!

      Sorry spine up and stop acting like you are the only one intelligent enough to know better.

      The 5 trillion is not even being covered on the top of any newspage….

      Mitt is clever to run the ad because it shows Obama’s desperation and falsehood and then turns it with Obama raising taxes by 4000.00 on Middle Class.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        Did you watch the video where a bunch of people in Wisconsin, when the question was put to them, thought it was unfair that Obama was not allowed to have a teleprompter during the debate?

        There are a lot of very gullible voting-aged citizens in our country. Some of them may have watched the debate, but not watched coverage of the debate afterward re: what Obama claimed.

    It’ll be fun watching the next Presidential debate. Obama will probably overcompensate from his last butt-kickin’ and experience what two butt-kickin’s in a row feels like.

  • http://twitter.com/CommonSensePre1 Common $ense Prepper

    The ad will work, but should have had it out within two days of the debate to curb the voice of the left. Also Romney not advertising on non-conventional conservative, such as, SCYFY, A&E, History Channel. Polls have repeatedly shown majority of viewers on these channels are Conservative and Independent.

    Romney also needs to ad some humor into his advertisement and use Obama’s own words against him. Obama has become the greatest hypocrite and given plenty of evidence to support and endless supply of ads on SCYFY, A7E, etc.

He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood…

      “Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders.

    Some of you may remember that Rush Limbaugh’s brother, David, wrote a book back in 2010, entitled, “Crimes Against Liberty.” It remains to this day, the best indictment of Obama for his crimes against this country, and the best detailed explanation of his Narcissistic behavior since he first entered Politics. Its not a joke. He really does believe he is some kind of God/King. That’s why he gets so angry when people don’t agree with him.

    Read the book, if you have the time. It is still revalent today.

    Looks like I’m late to the party again:

    “As “The Five” co-host Eric Bolling first observed, then-Sen. Barack Obama voted against a provision that would have waived Stafford Act obligations for victims of Hurricane Katrina just 10 days before he delivered the 2007 speech. Then, in the fiery speech, the president sharply criticized the federal government for supposedly refusing to waive Stafford Act requirements for the predominately black communities affected by the hurricane.”

      Word: you are never too late to continue to expose this hypocritical pathological liar. Thanks for the link. This is the kind of stuff that needs to get spread around. My wife explained this guy well: he sold his soul to the devil for the lust of power. I’m from the Chicago area and I remember when he ran for the Senate and destroyed Jack Ryan and Alan Keyes by character assassinations on things that were distortions and spins on the truth that were trivial compared to his consistent defiant blatant in your face lies. At that time a good friend of mine was a Cook County Sheriff and he was assigned to protect Obama as he campaigned. My friend was essentially that fly on the wall we all would want to be. He would tell me stories of how in public Obama made promises to people and then when he got backstage he would say to his handlers how he couldn’t stand those people and was never going to do those things. Then he’d laugh and smirk. He’s been doing it ever since.

    Did not the Supreme Court rule that the Affordable Healthcare Act (Obamacare) was constitutional because it was a tax. This in itself will cripple the economic and health care structure like nothing we have seen before. And if you think you pay too much into the medicare system by way of a payroll tax. The payroll tax will increase by $2,500 on individuals who make over $40,000+ to medicare from their paychecks. This is the sum that the Obama administration will levy on the middle class in the form of a tax and or penalty if not paid for by the individual. It is why 16,000 new IRS agents were hired for in the first place by this administration.

    I am amazed how people on opposing sides of an argument convince themselves that the other side are liars, lacking in intelligence, brainwashed, (fill in the blank). I have read comments among both candidate’s supporters that reflect this thinking. Perhaps this thinking is why few of our federal representatives seem able to do the business of the people. People seem genuinely lacking in respect for other’s viewpoints. People are entitled to their opinions (all people), and they are entitled to express them. That said, when you are practically frothing at the mouth at the other side (whichever side), it’s polarizing and destructive.
