The 8th Miracle To Save America

Comment

Despite high unemployment, continued bad news across fiscal America and a presidency that has lacked luster and restorative productivity, Barack Obama's stats continue to rival his top GOP challengers. And let's not forget that he still has the mainstream media hypnotically backing him or that his campaign machine hasn't even unleashed its billion dollars, according to Mike Huckabee, to combat his competitor.

Conservatives are right in asking, "Which GOP presidential candidate could survive, let alone have victory over, the Obama machine?" But maybe the strategy for victory lies in a unique plural solution.

Last week, I concluded my recommendation of the book "Seven Miracles That Saved America" by noting: "I also believe we need an eighth miracle to save America — a providential and pivotal moment that spares our country from falling off into four more years of the Obama transformational abyss."

Here is what I believe that eighth miracle would look like. It's not a single person, but a group of people, a formidable team — brought together by an unparalleled idea and unbridled patriots — that ensures the ousting of our incumbent president and the restoration of our country.

As a six-time undefeated world karate champion, I, like any long-term titleholder, will tell you that I obtained such a status by (among other things) mastering my opponents' strategies, not approaching every competition the same way, and by leveraging my foes' weaknesses and strengths against my own.

In a column a few months back, I introduced a martial arts practice that does just that; the art of jujitsu is to use an opponent's weight and strength to your advantage. I believe that this is what the GOP candidates and anti-Obama citizens must do in the 2012 presidential election.

This presidential race is unlike any before it. It is unique on many fronts, not only by the size and formidableness of the Goliath in the White House but also by the unique wisdom, experience and skill set of each potential GOP presidential nominee.

How many times have you heard from others, "There are strong elements I like in all of those running for the GOP nomination"? (During one debate, even the candidates themselves were splicing one another together as possible vice presidential nominees.) You may not want to see all of them sitting in the Oval Office, but wouldn't you want to see most help the country by serving in some position in the next president's administration?

Who wouldn't want to see a brilliant, experienced former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as a part of the Cabinet? Who doesn't appreciate the resolve and moral fortitude of Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Sen.

Rick Santorum? Who doesn't want to utilize the business backgrounds and leadership of Herman Cain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney? Who doesn't like the emboldened constitutional spirit and frugal fiscal passions of Rep. Ron Paul? Who doesn't appreciate Gov. Rick Perry's advocacy for Texas jobs and against frivolous lawsuits with tort reform? And who wouldn't want to use the foreign affairs experience of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman?

So herein lies my political jujitsu idea. After a fair fight for the GOP nomination, why couldn't the Republican contenders join together with an unparalleled strategy that could send the Obama campaign compound (including the mainstream media) in a tailspin? Why couldn't the winner create a united front and say, "A vote for one of us is a vote for all of us"? Why couldn't they create a Cabinet that would utilize all their skill sets to resurrect our republic? Why should the next GOP president try to sell the American public on new, obscure Cabinet members when these candidates have been vetted before our eyes for months? Would this idea not also rally those following the various candidates and keep our votes from splitting over a third-party candidate?

I can't think of any preceding presidential race in which this could have been done with the field of GOP nominees, but I also can't think of any preceding presidential race in which an idea such as this was needed more than it is now. This GOP political dream team also would be a true test of the contenders' patriotism and leadership servitude. Do they love and want to save our country enough to take a second, third, fourth, fifth, etc., seat among the presidential administration?

No idea is without its limitations and faults, but 99 percent of those across this country with whom I've broached this idea are certain that it would rally the majority and usher in a new president. Almost everyone who hears it also asks, "Why haven't the presidential candidates thought of this?"

That is exactly my question and challenge. Does any GOP presidential candidate have the courage and resolve to rally the GOP contestants and then the American public behind a political dream team comprising all of them?

Forget the presidential rhetoric. Forget presidential election business as usual. Forget typical GOP infighting. Desperate times call for desperate measures and strategic ingenuity.

I will conclude by repeating the impassioned plea at the end of last week's column. I feel as if we are standing at a crossroads similar to that at which George Washington stood when he wrote to James Madison in 1786, just a few years before the first president's inauguration: "No morn ever dawned more favorable than ours did; and no day was ever more clouded than the present! Wisdom, and good examples are necessary at this time to rescue the political machine from the impending storm."

Oh, isn't it true that the apocalapse is always just around the corner, waiting to save the likes of tired old phonies like you. Why don't you just go ahead and predict the end of the world if Obama is reelected. After all, that is exactly what is going to happen. His reelection, that is.

Washed up, hard up, bereft of new snake oil to sell, still trying to live off of long gone laurels. And getting old. Very old. That is you, Norris.

So sad...

Bruce will kick your ass to hell when you die just as he did when you were serving up your pseudo fighting b.s. on screen. You wouldn't know God if he ran over you with a pestilence. Which he should do, if you ask me.

It would be truly miraculous if you can persuade the American middle class to vote against their interests and in support of the GOP and its ongoing campaign to destroy the middle class. A majority of Americans voted for Bush (the second time, anyway) and what did we get? Endless wars, the evisiration of our constitution rights, and the near collapse of the economy. As the Occupy Wall Street movement shows, middle America is waking up to what has been done to them.
.
The reason that the GOP can't seem to settle on one of the little people running for president is that none of them are anywhere near up to the task. When one of them rises to prominence, the public begins to pay attention to their record and what they actually say. Bachmann is obviously lacking in anything like rational judgement. Cain, clearly a tool of the wealthy and the corporations, would like to rewrite the tax structure to shift much of their tax burden down to the poor and middle class. (Correction. He has revised it so that it just shifts the tax burden to the middle class.) Perry isn't very bright, but he seems earnest in his love of killing people. Neut, the king of personal ethics, Etc, etc. This ani't no dream team. The biggest favor the GOP could do would be to announce that we would be inflicted with all of these little people in our lives if we vote for the GOP ticket. You go Chuck.

You are to be congratulated, Chuck, on at least urging for some positive action to save your nation from further degeneration and chaos. Few will do so, being afraid to put their heads above the parapet for "the fear of man" Proverbs 29:25. The verse goes on, however, to state "but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe." This is key because a basic problem with the US is the sinister identity of those who really hold the reins of power. Pastor Robert Militello, from NYC and Jesuit-trained before becoming a KJB-believing Baptist, says this in the latest issue of his newsletter The Righteous Gentile: "Our foreign policy is for the most part, dictated by Rome and the Vatican Secretary of State, not twenty two, Jew hating Arab states. Remember the Wizard of Oz. The man behind the curtain pulling the levers is the Black Pope, Father General of the Society of Jesus known as the Jesuits. American foreign policy is fleshed out at Georgetown University's Graduate School of Foreign Service in Washington DC. President Clinton graduated there." You need men to overcome that sinister controlling influence who will be men such as him who "putteth his trust in LORD" according to Isaiah 66:2 "For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word." Whoever constitutes a GOP Cabinet, so to speak, that needs to be its members' first qualification. I pray that God will up such "men of stature" Isaiah 45:14 for the US - and the UK.

OK, you have the anti-Vatican crowd in the palm of your hand. I doubt that then went Obama's way last time either.
