dan-weberAMAC: ‘Realities Of Liberal Policies Provide A Rude Awakening Among Voters’  –

There’s new hope that we can restore the values that made the U.S. the most trusted and envied nation on the planet –

by John Grimaldi

WASHINGTON, DC, Dec 20 – “A variety of new polls show that Americans are increasingly disenchanted with the country’s swing to the left over the past five years.  They provide new hope that we can restore the values that made the U.S. the most trusted and envied nation on the planet,” according to personal rights activist Dan Weber.

“The surveys reflect the fact that the realities of liberal policies are providing a rude awakening among voters.  It’s a bad thing for liberal lawmakers who will face the electorate come November.  It’s a good thing for those of us who seek to reestablish the American democracy envisioned by the Founding Fathers,” Weber, who is president of the Association of Mature American Citizens, said.

He referenced a Washington Post/ABC News poll this week in which 79% of respondents said the nation was still bogged down in recession despite the official indicators which show the country is rebounding.  “The likely reason for the disparity is that the people don’t believe ‘official’ explanations anymore,” Weber explained.

“They learned a lesson the hard way from the botched efforts of government to wrest control of healthcare from the private sector in order to establish a new order based on socialist ideology.”

Reflecting that view, he added, is a new Gallup poll that found a record 72% of Americans believe that the biggest threat the country faces today and in the future is “Big Government.”

Meanwhile, President Obama has succeeded in losing credibility and public approval in the first year of his second term according to other recent independent surveys and Weber believes this will have a significant negative impact on liberal candidates in the mid-term elections.

“Americans have lost confidence in his administration.  They don’t trust the government.  There is a growing wave of dissatisfaction sweeping the country even among those who once vowed blind loyalty.  ‘People feel very disappointed because they expected more,’ as liberal journalist Barbara Walters admitted on a talk show a few days ago.”

The administration is hoping that Obamacare will be up and running in time to allow voters to forget about its “debacle of a debut” well before November’s elections.  “But the fact is that the worst is yet to come as far as the misnamed Affordable Care Act is concerned.  More people will lose coverage or have to struggle with high premiums and prohibitive deductibles as time goes on.  Many of them will have to go looking for new doctors,” Weber said.

And then there are the IRS scandal, the so-called “Fast and Furious” scandal, the Benghazi affair and the various foreign policy failures in the Middle East, he noted.

“It’s gotten so bad that just a few days ago 29 Congressmen got together to sponsor a Resolution in the House of Representatives rebuking President Obama for his missteps.”

Weber believes the turmoil will continue through 2014 and that it will provide enough momentum to propel the Conservative cause.  “It will hopefully also provide the nation with a united Congress able to provide the Executive Branch with a responsible, potent, loyal opposition during Mr. Obama’s remaining term of office.”

Light snow filters past my window. I look up in the old maple tree at the hole in the large branch and a small squirrel sits debating whether to go out in this weather. How peaceful. We are all looking for peace. Seems everyone is asking, “Who shall we turn the nation over to in order to obtain that peace? Republicans? Democrats? Independents? Progressives?” Sorry friends, there is only One to trust. I think we all know the answer. Only when we turn this nation back to God will there be peace. I pray, as the new year begins, that our focus and trust will return to Him and ONLY Him. Remember, “Where two or more are gathered in My name believing, the Father will hear and answer.” That is perhaps not an exact quote, but an important part of that passage is that we must believe. We must trust… Read more »

Thank you L for sharing this prayer with us. When I was little my parents made my brothers & I watch his sermons. At the time I resented it but now I am glad she did. Billy Graham has walked the talk and because of this has a great many followers. He has made a difference in many lives.

Merry Christmas everyone & God Bless

In the private company I worked for, you were only 20% vested in your retirement pension after you worked for the company 5 years & another 20% for each 5 years thereafter until you were 100% vested for full benefits. You were not “eligible” until your years working for the company & your age equalled 70 but could not actually “draw” on it until you were age 55. If you left before being fully vested, you could not draw until you reached age 62 and only on the percentage vested. I believe Congress’ pension/retirement should reflect the same as what is available in the private industry. Private companies appear to be moving away from pensions, towards 401Ks, therefore Congress should be moving in the same direction. If private industry offered lifetime retirement to an employee after only working for thier company 4 years they would go bankrupt. We can’ afford… Read more »

Face it until a Really Hard line is taken on election fraud, Polling place intimidation, The removal of the electoral collage, Vote collection and registration immediately being taken away from the off shore firm that presently holds it , All elections to be based on the national popular vote, Until these changes are gone about with Real Brass Tacks , We will only be fooling ourselves ! For reasons I’m sure is evident, we need to force term limits on all positions in government along with eliminating the lifetime benefit ” Realistically after four years they become their own special interest group removing their concern for the well being of US ! Our nation needs to return to the requirement of citizen legislators”, do your term and get back to work and hopefully become a viable part of society ! “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away… Read more »

New hope? Dream on. What the polls reveal is rarely reflected in how people vote. People are going to continue to vote for their individual benefits (and there are more people benefiting from big government than not) or their one issue (gay marriage, abortion, the environment, etc.). I WISH I could have hope, but I have none. We have lost this battle and the country our forefathers envisioned.

Correction: The Party who works TOGETHER, stays together. Sorry, the omission of this word changed the who meaning.

HAM

The only way we are going to accomplish what you are all saying here is to stick togethet as ONE party. If we don’t work together as a UNITED party the Republican Party will accomplish nothing in 2014 OR 2016. I’m going to take a little liberty here on a saying I was taught in Sunday school growing up – The Family who prays together, stays together – well “The PARTY who WORKS stays together”. We all know the Republican Party has gotten bad press because of the divide in the party and this view needs to be reversed.

I pray we will find candidates for the seats in the House & Senate in 2014 who will represent the best interests of the people & not their own personal agendas.

This is such a refreshing forum free of the liberal morons I see on most every forum that deals with politics. What everyone else seems to say here I great, honest and patriotic and folks I’d like to call friends. As for me I was thrilled when the Tea Party surfaced as this ideology is the TRUE Republican stand and is what I had been saying for years to many I talked to. Also glad to have AMAC for the same reason.
The one thing I’d add is that all of us who are believers need to fall on our knees and beg God for mercy for our country and for our laziness and neglect to allow this to happen. OFTEN! I am as guilty as anyone!
May Almighty God have mercy on us and help us to once again make this a Great Nation.

What we need is to have elected representatives who see George Orwell’s prophetic novel “1984” as a warning, not as a guidebook. And while they’re at it, they could try reading Washington and Jefferson instead of Marx and Lenin.

Hill Byde

I personally believe the Constitution of the U.S. is a God inspired document and only by adhering to it will we remain a free and independent nation and people. We the people need to be diligent in electing those who will honor the Constitution and obey the laws of the nation. We were founded on Judeo-Christian values and unless we honor those values and honor He who gave us those values we will fail as a nation. We have to be attentive to and support those who will represent us as we want to be represented. We need term limits on all political offices and we need to make sure that those who make the laws are subject to the same. We need to repeal the special retirement and insurance benefits that legislators get for serving as our representatives and become part of the Social Security System like everyone else.… Read more »

The Democrats in Washington are not the same Democrats as the average American citizen in heartland America. My parents were Democrats. Their parents were Democrats. They were proud of it. The Democrats in Washington are not true Democrats. They are socialist, fascist and communist who some sixty (60) years ago infiltrated and highjacked the Democrat party. Some of them will even admit this and appear to be proud of it. Many in Hollywood have strong communist leanings. They really should be referred to as infiltrators. Because that is what they are. Some of them have also infiltrated the Republican party. My hope is that come the 2014 elections, the people will closely vet the candidates they are voting for and remove these infiltrators. It’s our only chance of cleaning out these wolves and restoring America to its rightfully glory. We are the United States Of America. We are the greatest… Read more »

Isn’t it great that obamacare totally destroys our health insurance,causes people to lose the coverage they had, and now their going to not fine us for that.. Thank You Obama but I need to replace my insurance with something, before I lose everything I have.

the terrible tragedy is that american voters do not realize that a vote for any democrat is a vote for the democratic party, which has been pushing progressivism and socialism since fdr. and so has the american entertainment industry beginning with sid ceasar in the 1950s (read ben shapiro’s book, primetime propaganda). this all has affected our culture and schools in a near runaway fashion and thus many young minds. maybe the foks are getting fed up but they and we have a lot more homework to do to really understand what the democrats have and are trying to do to our constitution and culture.

Patti

We definitely have a chance…but, please…republicans…don’t fight and attack! Stand for something noble and go with it!

Bob Grantham

The real tragedy in all this is there is no punishment for lying to the American people time after time after time. There are no consequences for these “we know better than you what’s good for you because we are so much smarter than you” hacks. I have to believe that the Senate will change hands next election cycle but we are still stuck with the wishy-washy Republican careerists who have no fire in the belly and go along to get along. It is irksome that Obama and his crowd will retire and continue to be parasites on the American tax payer for years to come. I’m sure we will also have to pay for Barry statues to be erected along Obama Bvld in every city in the country. That should feed his ego for his remaining years.

All the comments I have been reading the last several years, give me a strong sense that our nation is waking up to the fact we are methodically and ever so intensely, being overrun and taken over by our own government. Watching Barbara Walters make the comments in such a humble fashion, is quite a good reason to think we may soon have an honest news media dispersing the truth, even if it comes out slowly piece by piece. I have agreed with all the comments I have read here and it is heart warming.

Ignoring history What type of government will give the most longevity to it’s principle? When we look at history, we see that the demise of all governments has been for the same reason, greed. Taking too much from the citizens for what ever reason. In ancient history a great amount was taken for large armies for either offense or defense and to build the kings treasures. Today too much is taken to aggrandize government workers and to provide excessive amount of welfare and subsides. Greece and Spain and other nations can attest to this. The United States is headed in this direction with its 16 trillion debt. Is there any thing we can do to keep the Republic which our founding fathers gave us. Did the founding fathers write anything into the constitution that would hold greed at bay? “It is not worth while to try to keep history from… Read more »

There is nothing more that I would like to do than join in this enthusiasm, but realistically we have deviated away from our maker too far, there is no reversal. Prophesy has explained very clearly the consequences of an “un-repentant” society and so here we are, facing the devastation of the “Last Days”.

Ivan Berry

Yep,PaulE. Poles lie. Yep, politicians lie. And in respones to the article, everyone keeps referring to our form of government as a democracy. It wasn’t founded as a democracy; it was founded as a republic, Even Plato said that democracy led to totalitarianism. That’s one of the few things he got right. And not here, at least this time, no one has reiterated that the government was run by a separation of powers consisting of legislative, executive and judicial. At our founding, those were not the only only separations. States, counties and local governments also had a role. We keep calling it a Federal government. There is no longer a federation that once consisted of a number of soverign states who formed a central government to accomplish those limited and enumerated powers that the individual states could not provide. They were, those powers, supposed to protect the states and the… Read more »
