Eyes Wide Open

Posted Friday, August 21, 2009, at 9:51 AM

For those who have ears, listen! For those who have eyes, see!
Obama's approval rating was high and people were so excited about what this new President would do to "bail them out" and be the answer for everything that was wrong with the country. His campaign was about telling everyone exactly what they wanted to hear, not founded on any real truths but a marketing campaign of illusions. Now as we (those with the ability to see)have watched and reported the real truths, those who bought into their lies are finally opening their eyes. Many are discovering that they have been used. Their fears and disappointments in the country were used to make them believe the BS of Obama's campaign. This is clearly reflected in his steady decline of approval. Even the newspapers who could find no wrong in their messiah are starting to come to their senses and report some truth.

For example: A new Gallup Poll finds that 68% of Americans believe their federal income taxes will be higher by the time Barack Obama's first term as president ends. This includes 35% who say their taxes will be "a lot higher." The Gallup daily tracking poll was conducted August 16-18, with approximately 1,600 people questioned by telephone. The survey's sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

According to the very Obama supported-CNN Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser: Obama's approval rating is starting to show some damage. They reported three sources (NBC, Gallup and Pew Research)and then report an average. "The 51 percent approval rating is down from an average of 54 percent at the end of July in a CNN Poll of Polls and down from an average of 61 percent in a CNN Poll of Polls from late June."

FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty: On the question of why the Republicans are not working with the Dems "the poll shows a growing number are now faulting the president. 17-percent of Americans say Mr. Obama is to blame... that's up from seven-percent who felt that way in February.

With health care eclipsing all else in Washington this summer -- it seems as though the president and the Democrats are losing favor with the American people."

In Florida alone, his approval rating has fallen below 50%, the lowest rating anywhere.

Washington Post: Showing a fall 57% to 46% today! They also reported that fewer than 50% support the healthcare reform!

Obama annouced yesterday that it was the Repulican's fault. He states that they are trying to derail the plan in order to corner the votes in the next elections.

Do we need to come up with the real reasons? I don't think so. You see there are plenty of people who got caught up the hype and propaganda used to get the Dems elected. Now the proof of their gameplan is in the pudding and many are starting to see it. I don't need polls to tell me if the President is doing a good job. I've stated quite clearly how I stand. It has always been based on researching and making up my own mind. However, polls are starting to reflect the change in people's opinions.

From the moment that Obama took office, I have searched and written exactly how I felt and the proof of how I came to that decision. Polls never played into it. Every piece that I have written has been the real truth about what is happening in our country. I have reported on the Nationalized road, the unconstitutional behavior and an unfinished research of the Czars, those given a nice salary to work on behalf of the President, with no Congressional approval.Yet, I am called a hypocrite along with other names that say that I'm spreading fear and lies. Anyone who doubts anything that I write can spend a moment or two researching it themselves. Read for yourself and decide for yourself. Weed out the bull and go to the truth. Stop fighting against what is slapping you in the face because of pride. If you voted for this man, don't hold on to him to save face because you'll drown with him in the end. Take off the blinders and use your mind and read. Why drown while holding tightly to the side of a sinking ship? Let go! Tread water and look for help with eyes wide open. (still on vacation)

Or do not hold on and we will call it population control and self-preservation. Gosh I hope we only have 4 years of this yahoo. If he goes 8...we will be in big trouble (worse than now). 1 good thing has come of this...I do not think Hillary will ever make it to the White House now.

Mike, I shall. Please send Donna our regards as well. I hope that you are right regarding the above. As far as Hillary goes...just another "Bill." 8 years of that was more than enough. Can you say "no thank you?" Enjoy your day Mike. I will look forward to that ride down the road. What a great car! Be well my friend!

Second blog in a row with a song title isn't it. Must be some kind of conspiracy?

Guess that actually makes three blog titles in a row of song names. Now I'm sure it must be a conspiracy.

It's no wonder his approval rating is going to go right off the charts in the negative numners! Fascists, Marxists and Global Elites deserve to be kicked out of our Government, sent to jail and kicked out of the country!

The power elite are also in the business of creating illusions. They use their politicians and the mass media to try to create a perception of reality they would like us to see. The illusions they create are elaborate, complicated, well designed, well executed and likely expensive, but they are illusions nonetheless. The difference between the illusions the power elite create and those of Criss Angel is that Mr. Angel creates his illusions strictly for entertainment purposes, the power elite are creating theirs so that they can control mass consciousness and hence make it easier to control the population in general. The problem for them is that many people are beginning to realize exactly what's been happening.

One of the ways to create a good illusion is to get the audience to look over there while something is happening over here. Another is to keep things hidden and produce them when you want them seen. Still another way is to make the audience believe something isn't what it appears to be, or that something is what it doesn't appear to be. Or any combination of these things can help produce a good illusion. Of course, if the audience looks where the action is and detects the slight of hand, or if they see the hidden element before it is produced, or if they are not convinced that something is or is not something else, then the illusion is ruined.

I really don't believe that any of this theater is about health care. It seems to me that it's about control. It's about power. It's about making everyone dependent upon government and so ensnaring them in a trap that makes the common class slavish to the power elite political class. As long as the illusions that politicians care are maintained, than they can manipulate the masses, divert attention away from their previous follies and create conflict amongst different groups that they define. People are beginning to see through their illusions, however. They are catching glimpses of the hidden. The old tricks that were at one time so effective at mesmerizing aren't working as well as they once did. People are beginning to walk away from the shell game the politicians and the power elite are playing. They are spotting the slight of hand. The masses want their independence, their power, and their money back. No illusion, no matter how well thought out, elaborate or expensive, will change that.

Great post Paul! I am really starting to applaud the masses of people who are coming out of their trances. I will go to that site. Good to see you back.

Approval ratings dont always mean everything but in this case it oould be very telling. I feel that he felt that he would never have this issue. Regardless of how or why it occurred, he is going to have to tread lightly. Overall, I think that this administration is not researching/analyzing these issues to the fullest extent. Rushing these far-reaching policies is going to backfire or at least I feel that they will.

Having a national debt is not inherently wrong or a sign of waste. What matters is the proportion of debt to assets. A certain president (F.D.R) who is regarded as a hero ran a deficit. The New Deal cost a lot of money but worked well anyways. The point is that if a government is going to run up the debt there should be a defined path on how to pay it back before one goes bankrupt. There is no evidence to suggest that there are going to attempt to reduce the debt now that the economy is on a minor upswing. This latest "recovery" is not what it seems. I wont bore everyone with the details. Overall, I would ask where they are going to draw the line on spending. Not all spending helps the economy.

One probable consequence of our current debt skyrocketing into orbit is that the dollar will shrink in value. Some will say that it already has. I disagree having been to the UK and Iceland in the last year. The dollar held up fine at those times. Not much has changed in those nations since then. Back to the point, we will see a sharp decrease in purchasing power on the international scene. A decline in net exports will have huge effects on port cities and then it will filter into the rest of the nation. That is just one of the many effects that the current national debt crisis will bring.

I've lived in Mtn Home since 1989, so that's...hold on...I'm thinking...WOW! Exactly 25 years! Boy, I think I can almost declare myself an Idahoan. But my family is British and I grew up in Louisiana around lots of other Brits so I still think I'm a little bit of a mutt. Those of you who have been around awhile may remember when I used to blog all the time. My opinions weren't very accepted and there was always an issue because I work for the county. That really wasn't fair because I NEVER blog at work! And I am still entitled to my opinions and thoughts about city and county issues, right? However, it stirred a lot of pots and those pots certainly can make a lot of noise! Since I'm a writer, I took what I wrote in my blog seriously so I spent a lot of time researching things which got exhausting to do when you're not even get a paycheck for it. So I stopped. That was a blessing to many! However, to this day, I still have people stop me and ask me why I wasn't blogging and t! hey missed it. I've missed it. Mainly because there are so many issues that come up and I have no voice except around my friends and I'm sure they are tired of it.
