We’ve been doing this column for two and a half years now. The driving force and the inspiration for skipmaclure.us is my editor, Dee. She’s the unsung hero behind the scenes that makes this whole thing work.
Like myself, she has a full time career, making this conservative outreach a labor of love. Dee’s a rare creature. She’s a rock-solid conservative in a country that has surrendered itself to the opiate of government cradle-to-grave entitlements, known as socialism. I’ve learned much from her about the nuts and bolts of everyday life under the ‘soft tyranny’ which is the British social welfare system.
She has related stories to me such as entire extended families, none of whom has ever held a paying job. The ‘dole’ has become trans-generational. You have more and more people in the UK living off of smaller and smaller productive segments of society. It brings to mind something that the ‘Iron Lady’ Margaret Thatcher said, “The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money”.
European style socialism is communism light. By its very nature it lacks the fierce entrepreneurial spirit that has imbued the people of America with the indomitable will to achieve, and instead drowns the people in a deluge of government regulation and ever increasing demands for more and more taxes, a crushing burden on citizens and the economy.

The time is here. This is the defining moment of this Congress and these leaders. Fully seventy percent of the American people do not want an increase in the debt limit.
MaoBama has all the little Marxists scattering throughout the beltway, desperately attempting to change the narrative. Increasingly exposed before America and the world as the feckless, incompetent idealogue he is, Barack Hussein Obama has painted himself and his Marxists into a corner.
The most recent Gallup and Rasmussen polls both show any generic Republican defeating Obama in the 2012 presidential race by five to eight points, and counting. Increasing numbers of disaffected voters identifying themselves as Democrats are leaving the fold, along with increasing numbers of other ‘safe’ ObaMao constituents such as the so-called ‘security moms’, who flocked to his Plastic Banana Good Time Rock an’ Roll image (thanks, Rush), so carefully crafted to deceive unwary Americans.
MaoBama is in deep water, and his Marxist followers know it. Every DeMarxist stunt in their really worn playbook has been pulled out with entirely predictable frequency every time the Anointed One has stubbed his toe. In fact, they’ve dragged these straw ponies out (smelling strongly of dead fish) so many times that virtually no one except the statists of the Lame Stream Media and the extreme leftist radicals even pay attention to it anymore. read more »
