Romney Supporters’ Changed Tune

↳ Posted on September 23rd, 2012 by Ben Spera

After months of vile, hateful attacks from Romney supporters during the primary, they have turned on a dime and now expect us to come filing in behind the party’s “official” candidate. Not this guy. I’m not voting for Romney because it solves nothing. We need to fix this country, and voting for an individual only because he won’t do AS MUCH damage just seem ludicrous to me. I’m not voting for anyone who’s going to do more damage PERIOD. I’m voting with my conscience not some underhanded political scheme to drag this economical crash out as long as possible. In my opinion, I think we should just get it over with, and start rebuilding already. Read more…

Ron Paul Has His Own Convention

↳ Posted on July 18th, 2012 by Ben Spera

It’s no secret that the GOP brass isn’t particularly fond of Congressman Paul. Even with Paul accumulating an impressive 6 states and almost 300 delegates by some counts, the GOP and Romney campaign have yet to even offer him an invitation to the Republican National Convention in Tampa. But Ron Paul doesn’t need your stupid convention because he’s having his own damn convention. Apparently it will kick off just before the GOP’s does and will be located in Tampa as well. If you want more details on Paul’s Tampa Rally check out his official announcement available on his website.

You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.

Disability is the New Welfare

Posted on July 17th, 2012 by Ben Spera

There’s an interesting article on Drudge Report today. According to the Senate Budget Committee, more Americans have enrolled in federal disability than found a job in the last quarter. I’ve had a beef with disability for a while. From personal experience, it seems people that are legitimately disabled bust their hump to stay employed and prove that their just as good as everyone else. The people I see on disability don’t seem any more disabled than the next guy who shows up to work every day. I hear ridiculous claims of unemployability due to being overweight, having ADD, too depressed to work, or ambiguous excuses of they “just don’t get along with others.”
