Reality Check - November 2008 by Gabe Suarez

Received this on a news letter from Gabe Suarez today. Don't think he would mind me posting it.


There are lots of people that think martial training should never be connected to politics. That somehow ... it loses its "purity (whatever that is). I think that may be true for strip mall karate schools or cop training venues, but certainly not the case with civilian-focused training schools and companies. Their very life in embroiled in the political process for one simple reason - there are political forces that hate our very existance and would stop at nothing, heller to the contrary, to totally do away with our way of life. To be a martial gun-owner, and be ignorant of politics is like sticking your head in the sand hoping they boogie man will go away. it didn't work for the ostrich and it won't work for you.

I was discussing the american political scene with some europeans some time back. We basically have two real-politik choices...chicken or beef. You don't get to order fish, or pasta, or some uber-new age veggie plate. Chicken or beef...democrat or republican. In this years menu - Obama or McCain.

You won't get any third party in November. Ron Paul won't win...neither will any other third party guy. Sorry folks. I deal in reality, not in what would be nice. You will either get Obama and the abomination Biden. Or you will get McCain and Palin. I don't like McCain. I don't think he is conservative enough. But I know Ron Paul doesn't have an ice cube's chance in hell. In fact, he has as much chance as I do!!

Its about McCain or Obama.

Obama will raise your taxes so much you will have to cook the books to keep your head above water. You will be more afraid of the IRS than of street gangs! He will marginalize traditional Christianity and islamize america in the same way as Europe has been. He will go so far to the left in the family values area that you will think homosexual marriage is normal. He will get in bed with every petty dictator on earth, abandon Israel and all our other allies.

He will ban your guns as well as well as your magazines. Probably ammo as well. Probably ban training and make guys like me even more outlaw than we are now. I can't imagine what sort of a traitorous gun-owner could ever possibly vote for a leftist like this guy.

And being a weak little liberal sissy boy, he will get punked by every real-man dictator out there from Chavez to Putin. They will be getting in line for him. Some defender of america he will be!! You want that? If you do, you are no american.

McCain, on the other hand, will be another four years of Bush-like presidency. WHICH WAS NOT BAD! I think McCain could do a better job at it than GW. Until recently (due to the liberal-created housing problem) the economy was fine, gun laws were coming down left and right, and as much as possible....we were doing pretty good. I doubt the Assault Weapon Law would have sunset, or that Heller would have gone the way it did under Gore, Kerry, or Obama.

I could not care less about Iraq and Afghanistan or about Georgia. I don't care one bit about most of the issues these so-called "patriots" incessantly huff and puff about. I do not, however, want and strongly resent, the government putting their hand in my pocket to steal my money.

McCain will steal far less of my money than Obama.

No pig-eared closet communist should be able to decide what guns I can have. Obama will do everything he can to circumvent the Second Ammendment, Heller, you name it. If you think Obama is pro-gun, you'd better stop smoking whatever you are smoking!!

McCain will leave my guns alone.....specially with Palin on board.

And in the end....IF (and it is a big fat IF) McCain dies in office, we get Sarah Palin....a fine conservative lady that I would respect and proudly follow (unlike Biden whose fall I would pray for daily).

So there it is.

McCain or Obama....THOSE ARE THE ONLY CHOICES. You don't have to like it, but you do have to recognize it.

In the early nineteen nineties, the conservatives were really dissatisfied with Bush the First. This was right at the end of the Gulf War and right around the time of the riots in Los Angeles. Also the time of the famous line, Read My Lips - No New Taxes. Well, Bush I did in fact raise taxes and did in fact sign several anti-gun laws which soured the conservative base so much that a little pseudo-conservative with a bad haircut named Ross Perot came up and crapped all over the election by diverting votes away from Bush to the Perot Campaign.

The end result of the Perot Effect? Eight years of Bill Clinton by default. We can thank third party votes for Hillary as a matter of fact.

Protest vote? Yep....cut off your nose to spite your face. That'll show em!! Do we need to fix the outdated two party system? You bet we do, but it won't get fixed in November. McCain or Obama? Which would be better in terms of your money and your guns?

But listen...you want to protest....really protest. Do it like the Buddhist monks in Vietnam did in the sixties. Just set yourself on fire on election day. You get to make your statement of protest, and the rest of us don't need to live with the results of your selfishness and irresponsability.

How am I still alive???
Did Limbaugh write that? Because it was chock-full of some of the most irresponsible and hyperbolic rhetoric that I've seen in quite a while. Obama is going to "marginalize Christianity and islamize America...?" How? I like Mr. Suarez, and I appreciate the work he does, but I think that articles like this one only serve to fuel the partisan divide and pointless vitriol that doesn't do we the voters any good. I have no problem with him expressing his opinions about politics in whatever way he sees fit, but I'd be much more impressed if he would inform his readers regarding actual issues with which he and Obama disagree. This article is the type of hit-piece I'd expect to see aimed at Sarah Palin by some leftwing blogger at Huffington Post or Democratic Underground. I think we can do better.

I think the main point here is that although many of us would like to see a third choice to vote for,like Ron Paul, the fact we have to come to is when the day is done and voting over we will be stuck with either McCane or Obama. If it has to be one of the two then let it be McCane. After all that is all we seem to ever get is the lesser of two evils.

I agree. One of our own engaging in the same fear mongering and hyperbole that we like to ridicule liberals for.
 
If you think of this as a comedic rant it will put it more into perspective. We all know Obama is not Muslim and will not turn this country into an Islamic state. We all know he's not a "closet" communist. No one wants anyone to set themselves on fire in protest. These are statements made to grab interest. However, will he try to pass an AWB? Very likely. Will he raise taxes? Also very likely. Is voting for a third party (at least at this point in our history) a wasted vote? In my opinion, yes. In his own way he's trying to get people to look at the issues. The same way that some pro Obama writers do every day. The main thing is to vote with your mind and not with emotion. If, after looking over the issues, you want to vote for Obama, McCain or a third party, at least vote.
