Random Thoughts: Where Now, GOP?

Posted on November 9, 2012 9:35 am

When is CPAC? I’m going to try to finally attend to I can take over as leader of the new generation of conservatives.

The GOP can’t compete with progressives’ new ideas like raising taxes and government spending.

So what president has had a great second term? Seem like more should aim to be like Polk.

In my book, I have my illegal immigration compromise. One person deported for one illegal alien, but it doesn’t have to be the illegal alien. Like instead, we could deport a useless hippie. Let’s solve this problem and strengthen America.

Somehow conservatives totally won on the issue of guns over the last 50 years. How do we push whatever strategy worked there to other areas?

I guess we could threaten people with guns. Or is that too on the nose?

And generally people say they want smaller government. They don’t vote for that, but they like the idea. We can work with that.

The country is pretty divided. How do we end that? Some sort of war with space aliens?

We still in the recriminations phase? Because I’ll remind you I did pretty much nothing this election year so it’s definitely not my fault.

So are candidate didn’t win, but we all get Obamaphones, right?

Finger-pointing isn’t helpful. Let’s simply shun everyone who suggested Romney as a candidate and never speak of them again.

We may be headed to another recession, but it’s okay because I hear Obama has another jobs bill to propose.

We must punish job creators until they deliver all those jobs they owe us.

I still don’t understand what Obama did during Sandy that was impressive.

He walked around a bit and looked concerned, but did he do anything you couldn’t train a collie to do?

I hope Cory Booker is making sure Chris Christie doesn’t eat all the free hot pockets.

What does it say about me that I’m not interested in the next Call of Duty game because I want to shoot people, not robots?

Robots are bulletproof! They’re no fun to shoot!

About done with book 5 of Game of Thrones. What should I read next? I was thinking Ender’s Game as I hadn’t read that and it’s being made into a movie. Or World War Z if that’s any good. I only read books that are being adapted to film as that’s the only way to be sure they’re quality stories.

“A Greyjoy always pays in winter.” -motto of House Baratheon

Our electable presidential candidates are so unelectable.

    Read WWZ and the ZSG. Buy them both, I have paperback copies of both on hand for Z-Day.

    What needs to happen is 50 years of action movies where the protagonist overcomes the odds and defeats the bad guys wielding a balanced budget, etc.

  3. George says:

    Must read Ender’s Game. You’re no sci-if fan if you’ve never read Ender’s Game at your age.

  4. spacemonkey says:

    Or read my new book “Ender for Beginners.”

  5. Scott says:

    I suggest that you read pretty much anything by Vince Flynn, Brad Thor or Ted Bell. Atlas Shrugged is always a good read, too. Although 1,100 pages get pretty tedious… Already 2 of 3 movies made from it, too…

  6. Rock Throwing Peasant says:

    I like WWZ, but didn’t find ZSG worth it (actually got it for free by swinding these suckers called, “Library,” but decided to return it). WWZ even inspired me to buy the Studs book. Haven’t read it yet, though.

    I’m not into recriminations or finger-pointing. Too busy burying ammo and bibles.

    I heard Paul Krugman talking once about how great Keynesian economics is and we need to have more government spending (and worrying about a $16,000,000,000,000 is just silly). He said if we could manage to convince people that we’re about to be invaded by aliens, then we’d all go along with his plan and it would get us out of this economic crisis.

    All I could think was, “Does this guy not notice that he’s the bad guy from Watchmen?”

    I don’t know. Can a collie read from a teleprompter?

  9. Jay says:

    Ender’s Game is pretty good but let me suggest “John Dies at the End”. It will prepare you for a second Obama term.

    “What should I read next? I was thinking Ender’s Game as I hadn’t read that and it’s being made into a movie.” I hope they do a better job of interpreting Ender’s Game than they did Starship Troopers. You might also consider reading ‘How to Fix Everything in America Forever’, I hear its pretty good.

  11. KristenS says:

    Highly recommend Ender’s Game. I don’t even really like sci-fi very much– I watch Dr Who for the David Tennant :) but off of a recommendation on Ace’s blog that it was one of the classics, a sci-fi book even for ppl who may not really dig sci-fi, I picked up the audiobook. It is fantastic. A coming of age story amidst a 1984-on-crack government, plus war strategies and friendships made and lost… it’s a compelling read (or listen), and it’s not just for sci-fi lovers.

  12. Bob says:

    I will almost guarantee you would really like Monster Hunter International (and the sequals) by Larry Correia. And add another vote for Ender’s Game (and some, *some* mind you, of the sequals).

    I noticed the plot moved nowhere in Book 4 of Game of Thrones, and the reviews indicated it moved even slower in Book 5. I haven’t been able to talk myself into reading it, yet. Shame, too, because I liked the first couple, and even believed there was a slight chance it might wrap up some day.

  13. Andrew Felsher says:

    Definitely read Ender’s Game. There’s a bunch of other Ender books that are also really good, but Ender’s Game is just awesome. It’s got everything a gaming computer programmer conservative could want: high-tech wargames, space aliens, planet-killers, cracks on socialism. Oh, and its FTL explanations are a little more realistic and believable than, say, Star Wars or Star Trek.

  14. Andrew Felsher says:

    Ender’s book warning: It’s written by a Mormon. So if you got your fill of that with Romney…

  15. Larry E says:

    “We must punish job creators until they deliver all those jobs they owe us.”

    I second that. “The beatings will continue until morale improves.” (That’s the idea behind the Stimuli bills, I understand.)

  16. Alucard says:

    Orson Scott Card votes Republican (and loved Serenity). Therefore, you must read Ender’s Game … at least until book six of the Song of Ice and Fire comes out.

  17. Zaklog the Great says:

    ^ Alucard, actually Card considers himself an old-school Democrat. He says the Democratic party has gone in very strange directions. I’m not sure what decade of the Democratic Party he would align himself with.

    He tends to be hawkish, but has also argued for public projects like a rail system (I don’t recall the exact context of that last one). He’s immensely frustrated with the Republican party on illegal immigration.

    Very social conservative, like most Mormons are. Honestly, enjoying his books is one of the first things that convinced me that, though I disagree with them, Mormons aren’t bad people.

    The best way to cure the illegal immigration problem:
    1) Mandate that everyone must pay Social Security and Income Taxes.
    2) Require all Citizenship tests to be in Written English only.
    3) Require Citizenship papers on all Welfare/WIC/Food Stamps/etc.
    4) Req

    5) As Non-Citizens they cannot receive “In-State” tuition rates.
    Without the benefits, there is no reason for them to come here.

    @ Writer:

    Yeah, good luck with that. My state (OR) won’t even deny illegal’s driver’s licenses are ballots. Illegal Aliens gather in street protests and are not arrested or shot. What makes you think they’ll be denied government “benefits” after they’ve been handed an illegal ballot?
