2009 Obama Agenda Survey

So. It must be that time again. The Republican National Committee needs money. So they're sending out these surveys to see what their voter base thinks of Obama's agenda. Are they serious? Don't they watch the news? Haven't they figured out that the majority of people in this country are fed up already? Perhaps not. Either way, it's time to go over the list of things they're asking and my take on them that's a bit more than the yes/no/duuhhhhh answers they provided. They got smart this time, they didn't give us any spaces to write stuff in.

1. Do you agree with Barack Obama's budget plan that will lead to a $23.1 trillion deficit over the next ten years?

Obviously not. He's already led to a budget deficit that's currently approaching $2 Trillion now so why would I want him to continue doing so to utterly destroy the economy later?

2. Do you believe the federal government has gone too far in bailing out failing banks, insurance companies and the auto industry?

Yes, they've gone too far. They went too far when this shit got started in 2008 and I was against it then because it was the first step on the road to nationalization. I've always held that banks, insurance companies, the auto industry, and any other company should have been allowed to fail and learn from their stupid mistakes that brought them to the point of needing to be bailed out to begin with. It serves nothing to prolong the disaster by creating a precedent by which they know they can just come running back with their hands out and the government will fall for it every time and give them the money. This needs to stop. There's no such thing as a business that's "too big to fail" as we've been told. But apparently there's a such thing as lobbyists with too much money to spend.

3. Do you support amnesty for illegal immigrants?

No way. Not in any way would I support an amnesty bill. These people knew they broke the law when they came here. They know they're continuing to do so by stealing from our Social Security funds and stealing our jobs from us. They continue to do so by stealing identities from actual citizens. Why should we just forgive all that and provide the left wing lunatics with even more voters? That's all the left wants out of amnesty is more voters.

Should English be the official language of the United States?

Yes. I'm rather sick and tired of everything being printed in 15 different languages because some jackoff from another country is too lazy to learn our language and function as a productive member of our society. Other countries expect people who show up there to learn their languages and a sizable number of them have official languages too. I see no reason why we shouldn't and why we shouldn't expect those people to learn ours when they come here.

Are you in favor of granting retroactive Social Security eligibility to illegal immigrants who gain U.S. citizenship through an amnesty program?

Well since I don't favor amnesty to begin with, I certainly am not about to approve of throwing away our money on thieves and rewarding criminals for their criminal behavior. We have laws on the books to prevent murderers and rapists from profiting from their crimes. Why should we let the illegals profit from theirs?

Are you in favor of the expanded welfare benefits and unlimited eligibility (no time, education or work requirements) that Democrats in Congress are pushing to pass?

Unlimited eligibility? As if we don't already have that now? If anyone seriously thinks that the so-called "welfare to work" program is actually functioning that way they need to take a wake up pill and join the real world. That said, no, obviously I don't support officially turning welfare into a sponge-for-life program.

Do you believe that Barack Obama's nominees for federal courts should be immediately and unquestionably approved for their lifetime appointments by the U.S. Senate?

Well obviously not. Then again, I don't think Bush's nominees should have been immediately and unquestionably approved for their lifetime appointments either. The real difference here of course is that Bush didn't try to appoint racists and radicals to the court, whereas Obama already has and already got her approved pretty much with no resistance. Sure, there was debate, there were questions, but the fact that she was confirmed so quickly means it was all hollow and for show and that none of the Republicans who voted for her have a brain in their heads and now our country is going to be paying for it for decades to come. Unless we get lucky and she croaks early.

Do you believe that the best way to increase the quality and effectiveness of public education in the U.S. is to rapidly expand federal funding while eliminating performance standards and accountability?

No. I believe the best way to increase educational quality and effectiveness is for the Department of Education to disband immediately and never come back. The government should have absolutely no role in education at all.

Do you support the creation of a national health insurance plan that would be administered by bureaucrats in Washington D.C.?

No. I don't support the creation of a national health insurance system in any form, no matter who is running it. Government needs to abandon this silly idea and leave this up to the private sector who has been doing a pretty good job of this up until now. That said, some reform of the regulations that oversee the industry are needed. Primarily in the area of tort reform. Trial lawyers are what's really wrong with the system we have now and are why things are so expensive.

Do you believe that the quality and availability of healthcare will increase if the federal government dictates pricing to doctors and hospitals?

No. I'm not sure what else needs to be said, the feds shouldn't even be in the position of dictating anything.

Are you confident that new medicines and medical treatments will continue to be developed if the federal government controls prescription drug prices and sets profit margins for research and pharmaceutical companies?

I'm not confident of anything good coming of that level of federal interference in anything, so no.

Are you in favor of creating a government-funded "Citizen Volunteer Corps" that would pay young people to do work now done by churches and charities, earning Corps Members the same pay and benefits given to military veterans?

Oh boy. Mr. Steel, you should have had the balls to ask what this is really referring to. Citizen volunteer corp my ass. This is Obama's "Civilian National Security Force" he talked about back in July of 2008. You know, the one that's as large, powerful, and well funded as the US military? Hitler's SS reincarnate? Yeah, THAT force. Well clearly I don't support anything even remotely approaching that. I'm pretty sure that if Obama pushes this one anywhere close to where he wants it that it won't have a chance to solidify because it'll be interrupted by the first shots in the Second American Revolution. Or Second American Civil War if you prefer, because there's a strong chance it'll trigger secessions.

Are you in favor of reinstituting the military draft, as Democrats in Congress have proposed?

I don't support reinstituting the draft regardless of who proposed it. Our military is made up of a large number of very fine people right now who WANT to be there. Anytime you force people to do things they don't want to do, the quality of the people you get drops substantially and you end up really screwing things up. The draft should only be used in serious situations, along the lines of full scale world war or something where the standing army isn't going to be enough to deal with things. We're nowhere near that yet and despite claims made by the left, recruitment is strong and we've got plenty of assets available should we need them. I do think it's amusing though that the left wants to reinstitute the draft when they spent so much time bitching about Bush floating the idea during his 8 years. But I guess it's alright when the Obamassiah wants it.

Do you believe that the federal government should allow the unionization of Department of Homeland Security employees who serve in positions critical to the safety and security of our nation?

I have to say that I in no way like unions. They're corrupt and power hungry and have not served the actual interests of the people they represent for the last 30 years or so. The DHS employees are better off on their own. That said, those in a critical role vital to our national security should not be given the ability to strike and place us in danger. Reagan was entirely correct in firing the air traffic controllers when they went on strike and that wasn't even a national security issue. DHS plays a far more important role than that.

Do you support Democrats' drive to eliminate workers' right to a private ballot when considering unionization of their place of employment?

I don't get this at all, really. Why are the libs even considering such a thing after all the bitching and whining and moaning and political smearing they did against the Bush administration for "invading everyone's privacy"? The scarier part is, if they succeed in doing this, what's to stop them from taking it to the next logical result and eliminating secret balloting when voting to kick their sorry asses out of power?


So there it is. The 2009 Obama Agenda Survey. I really don't know why Michael Steele even needs to bother asking, surely he knows by now that Obama is digging his own grave and nobody in their right minds wants to see his agenda continue the way it is. Already 55% of the people are against Obamacare. That number is only growing. The stimulus has failed. Unemployment breached 10% despite promises this wouldn't happen. People don't want socialism and never have. That's what Obama doesn't get. None of this worked for Carter. It won't work for Obama either. So instead of spending so much time and money on stupid surveys where the answers should already be obvious, spend your time and money on getting Republicans elected to Congress in 2010 so we can put the brakes on Obama's dangerous policies and start working to rebuild what we've already lost.

Well. I guess that's that then.

Hahahahaaa....... oh man. It got even better when I went to put the survey form into the return envelope:

By using your own first class stamp to return this envelope, you will be helping us save much needed funds.

I have a better way to go about that. Stop sending out pointless surveys in the mail. You'll save boatloads of funds that way.

Alrighty then.. I just read through your whole post very carefully waiting to find the part I was going to have to quote so that I could respond with my own point of view.. and it still hadn't even come up once I'd finished reading your comment. So, in simplest terms: agreed.


I love how they wrote a questionnaire that, to any conservative, basically says over and over "The government wants to run our country into the ground. Do you think this is a good idea?" It's like the equivalent of asking "Is torturing puppies a good thing to do?"

(Understand that I think this kind of thing is totally bipartisan - I certainly saw loads that looked like it by Dems during the Bush years. Although liberal outrage has a slightly different tone. Sort of more "How can anybody be so STUPID as to run things this way?" Republicans tend towards "How can anybody be so amoral as to run things this way?";)

Oh, and I agree: the stamp thing is hilarious. I've never even seen a soup kitchen pull that on their return mail.

Oh I'm well aware of what the dems sent to their people. I had friends who shared them with us at work during the 2004 election cycle. The RNC and the DNC both send out partisan surveys all the time and it won't end anytime soon. The only thing we can all seem to agree on is that government is running the country into the ground. Seems we can't agree on whether it's stupidity or immorality behind why though :)

Actually, the stamp thing is fairly common among charities and has been for awhile now. *shrug*

*Yawn* RNC sent me another one of these survey things. More or less the same sort of loaded questions with the same boring old answers, so I filled it in and mailed it back without bothering to post it here. I'm sure nobody minds :)

Not if it was basically just the same as last time anyway.
