Which lizard will you vote for ?

Samizdata recently posted this excerpt from Douglas Adams' brilliant novel So Long And Thanks For All The Fish. 

"On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."

"I did," said Ford. "It is."

"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"

"It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want."

"You mean they actually vote for the lizards?"

"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."

"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"

"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard," said Ford, "the wrong lizard might get in."
That's really all you need to know about the herd behavior that the Libertarian Party is trying to change before November 3rd. 

Mitt Romney gave the world RomneyCare.  He hasn't mentioned a single cabinet-level department he'd eliminate.  His Veep has approved more pork than Oscar Mayer.  Hasn't said a peep about slashing military spending or shutting down Foreign Aid Military Bases.  Calling him the small-government solution is laughable.   But at least he doesn't like gay marriage or abortion !!!  If you don't vote for Romney, the wrong lizard will win !!  It will be a victory for the wrong team of lizards !! 

Barack Obama has spent money like an East Lancaster pimp with only one week to live.  All other administrations pale in comparison.  Until recently, he's done nothing to support gay marriage.  He's a f***ing drug warrior.  He's raided medical marijuana dispensaries.  He would have to study for five years to rise to the level of economic idiot.  His predictions for what would happen without a stimulus aren't as bad as what he achieved with a stimulus.  But he doesn't like the Tea Party or Sarah Palin, and he supports National Public Radio !!!  If you don't vote for Obama, the wrong lizard will win !!  It will be a victory for the wrong team of lizards !!

Here's what Obama has done to employment:

Here's a comparison of RomneyCare and ObamaCare, and I don't know or care about the significance of the abortion coverage, which is circled.  The guys that circled it were trying to point out differences between the Democrat lizard and the Republican lizard, and it was a stretch:
Both of these guys are lizards.  They don't want to change the direction of the car, they just want to drive it. 

Gary Johnson wants to shut the thing off.  Pull it over to the side of the road and park it until it's 45% smaller. 

Ignoring the waste and ridiculous spending isn't going to make the problem go away.  Stop voting for lizards.  Vote for Gary Johnson !!

Let's roll this chart out again, shall we?

Whited's Law - "A depression is a recession that the government tried to kill." 

See: Roosevelt, Franklin D., Carter, James E., and Obama, Barack H.

So....What would it take to change your mind?

I've been phenomenally busy at work.
I'll be incredibly busy for the next four weeks.
So I'm thinking about posting nothing but updates to this chart until I have time to write something else. 

Obama predicted terrible, terrible things if we didn't pass his pork-laden stimulus bill.  Horrible things. 

A gang of idiots passed his stimulus bill. 

Ever since then, things have been worse than his predictions of what would happen without the thefts/giveaways. 

Is there anyone out there who can still defend this crap?  Anybody at all???

When thieves are in power, people with money hide their money.  It really is that simple.

Ungrateful Cubans

Things like this make me sick....This is from the Seattle Times:
MIAMI - They led a life of privilege in a society of chronic scarcity. Children of top Cuban officials from Fidel Castro on down, they attended elite schools and often received coveted visas to study abroad.

They were being groomed to lead Cuba into the 21st century. Yet, with the passage of time and the decline of communism in the world, many of the children of Cuban revolutionaries have stopped believing in their parents and their values. Some never did believe.

The recent spectacular escape to the United States of Castro's own daughter dramatized the crisis of confidence among the children of the Cuban revolutionary "aristocracy." Alina Fernandez Revuelta, Castro's 37-year-old daughter, is only the latest in a growing number of elite defectors, a few of whom are now in Miami.
Fidel Castro has provided his people with programs for jobs, healthcare, and education.  There's hardly a Cuban alive who hasn't benefited from his economic, medical, or academic systems. 

He's given them roads.  He provided infrastructure - telephone lines, plumbing, and electricity.  Every time a Cuban looks at anything on his island, he should proudly step back and say "I didn't build that". 

But there are so-called "reformers" in Cuba who want to destroy the very system that has supported them their entire lives!!! 

Some of them want to overthrow Fidel Castro.  Yeah.  You heard it right.  But whose roads are the idealistic revolutionaries going to march on?  Fidel's.  Whose food will they eat?  Fidel's.  Whose roofs will they sleep under?  The ones provided by Fidel Castro. 

The hypocrisy makes me ill. 

Cubans didn't plow those sugar cane fields, erect those buildings, or pave those roads.  The Cuban government did it. 

If any of those ungrateful little Cubans can read this blog post, it's because Fidel Castro provided a system that taught them how to read.
