Wanted: A Man of Four Qualities

How about Wisdom to select and act upon an adequate alternative, in a timely manner?

People with those principles recognize the underlying criminality of gov't and will never have anything to do with it at all.

Once again, even though today it seems gov't is overflowing with criminals, most of them were good people at one time. Upon entering the sphere of criminality they too succumbed for there is no other way to remain there. The very foundation of democracy is criminal and there is no way around it.

You'll only be able to avoid this truth for a short while longer.

Afterward you'll look back and regret that you didn't recognize it sooner as it seems so clear now, maybe.

The primary job of the President is to protect the people from foreign and domestic enemies. He is the C-in-C and the chief law enforcement officer for the nation. The four characteristics cited by Fernandez are what an ideal C-in-C would possess.

Unfortunately, very little time is spent on measuring our candidates for the job of C-in-C. Most of it is spent in looking for the Santa Claus-in-Chief with the most domestic programs to "help" people.

In Obama, we certainly have an example of a man in the job who does not measure up to the standards cited. Although men with no military experience have served adequately in the job, it appears to me that men with military experience are more likely to meet the qualifications cited. I can think of two men who might qualify, if they chose to run for the office - Senator Tom Cotton, and former Representative Allen West.

IMO, not one of the candidates among the present crop meet the these standards to be C-in-C. In a time of seemingly never-ending conflict/war that concerns me.

He means someone completely unlike Obama.

I have been reading RF's site for many years. He knows more about what it means to be an American and American values than most Americans. Unlike him, I have lost all hope in politicians. In this day of media soundbites they will say and promise anything to get elected....as they know that nobody will hold them accountable.

What type of man we needed before this new age is now irrelevant; what is needed in the age after Obama and the explosive growth of the State is another issue, completely.

A Sam Adams is needed now, not a John Adams. A man with the will and ruthlessness of Lenin, a Patton or a Pershing; not a McClellan or a Petraeus.

Don't think about or plan to fight Obama or those of his ilk. Think and plan to fight against the depraved electorate that uses those fools as it's tools to enslave the rest of us.

If you are self-censuring your words and even your thoughts every day then thank an 'Educator', if you don't understand the language of your home streets then thank the media and your politicians.

Someone is going to become the new Kulaks, (i.e. To be eliminated as a class...); them or us.

Unfortunately a Man with Qualities is not what you get in Kakania.

It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress. - Stuff Samuel Clemens said over 100 years ago.

Some things never change.

One more thing: we need a man who can look at that painting of Washington crossing the frozen Delaware and say. "Whoa! That's a LOT of ice in that river! Maybe there really was something called the Little Ice Age!"

And the planet has been warming up from the LIA, in fits and starts, ever since. "Carbon" has nothing to do with it. Just like CO2 has nothing to do with the bogus global warming scare.

We need a man who is sick and tired — like we are — of all the propaganda, hype, and false alarms that are nothing more than a giant scam, intended to grease the skids so the Progs can take over...

...otherwise, BOHICA.
