The Real Deal

I once read a story of "The Great Bottle Hoax of 1749". It was a bet between The Duke of Portland and the Earl of Chesterfield. The Duke bet The Earl that people would be gullible enough to spend a lot of money to see a man jump into a quart bottle, and that people would be able to come up on stage and handle it while the man was inside. Sure enough, wealthy people came from all over and spent good money to see this act. The theater was sold out. Of course there was no act, people rioted and so on and so forth.

Well I can't seem to get that out of my head when I think of this past election year. It's hard to believe Obama could have gotten such a big cult following. He basically said nothing, yet americans had fallen for everything he did say. He had to have bet someone that he could prove how gullible Americans were. How many more ways can he take our money before we wake up and realize what's going on. He wants our money, and we're giving it to him.

I hope that we can, at least, make it one more year so we can elect less wimpy "republicans" in the mid-term elections. We can't have liberalism run unchecked throughout our government anymore. Once we do that, then we'll have two more years before we can hopefully elect the next Ronald Reagan. I just pray that there is someone out there like that. I've heard it said that, if you try to be someone else, why not just choose that someone else. Then at least you're getting the real thing. That's exactly why we have liberals running our government. There are no republicans that stand for anything.

Next time we vote, hopefully there will be a conservative with guts and will stand out and step up. Someone who will follow God and his teachings, and not be ashamed. A hero. We miss you President Reagan. You were the real deal.
