I don't know if you guys knew this but I am a high School hockey coach as well as a patriot musician parked here at Big Dawg. I played college hockey at Merrimack College which is a division one program in hockey east. I played against now current Bruins goalie Tim Thomas when he was at the University of Vermont. He was good then and he brought the Boston Bruins a Stanley cup literally on his shoulders this past season. What I did not know about Tim who is a very humble type of guy, is that he is a patriot like us! His courage to be the only person on his team who refused to go to the white house sends an amazing amount of messages to both me and other patriots.

1. Have courage. Don't be afraid to take a stand and say what you believe in.

2. Don't be a bystander. Even if you are alone in your stand. make your stand because you may never get the chance to do so again.

3. He put his job and even relationships with his teamates at jeopardy being the only team member to make this stand.

4. He brought the critical issue of Individual Freedom and liberty to the forefront where now average sports fans who are in a deep sleep about what is going on may just by a miracle start waking up about this most important issue.

Thank you Tim. Your statement on facebook also says volumes. You are right,It is not about Party because both parties got us here. It is about our individual freedoms and liberties that are at stake.

This is more important then who can beat Obama. If we do not STOP dead this slow motion rolling tide of Tyranny(100 years and counting) Then there will be no going back. We must make this the central issue of this election. Yes even over Iran. It is the enemy within. If we do not stop the attack on our liberties now we will look more like Nazi Germany than the America we love. Does the TSA stopping of Rand Paul not tell you anything? This is a known US Senator. He refused the body scan as is his constitutional right and was detained so long that he did not make his flight. They know he is not a terrorist. But this is not about looking for terrorists. This is about conditioning the american people even senators to accept that we have "Checkpoints and Papers Please" Say those words now with a german accent and it is suddenly more scary and real isn't it? People please wake up! Our Liberties are severely at stake and meanwhile at the Kabuki Theater we are focusing on Mitt's Tax returns. I watched the whole debate. I understant why people like Newt. he is infectious. he is well spoken. he looks and talks like your grand daddy. You want to trust him based on his words and how he delivers them. However my mom always told me Action is Gold and words just get old. Judge everyone on their actions. They never lie.  You may think this is just another election and it isn't as bad as people are making it out to be. But ask yourself if you could ever remember a time when you were a kid and Ronny Reagan was in office where a US Senator was detained on US Soil and questioned? It never happened folks. But this is how conditioning works. This is the very thing Prophet and Forefather Ben Franklin warned us on. Never trade your freedom for safety because it gives you neither freedom or safety.

   Before I go into on e of my rants  I want to say  the  one thing we must never forget in all of this  my fellow dawgers is We must  trust  that  there is a power greater than all of us, and put our faith in Him. 

 with that said I am making a prediction 

     No matter WHO WINS ....  THEY will beat  the pants off of Obama

Well I have tried to hold off and not throw cold water on everyone's hopes but I think it's time to speak up. I live in Pennsylvania . Santorum was our senator for 8 years. He did some good things but he turned off the conservative base by supporting Arlen Spector for reelection over the more conservative (and now current senator) Pat Tomey.

He also helped in getting government money (taxes) to finance a football and a baseball stadium here in Pittsburgh. This was after such a proposal was voted down in a public referendum.

Rick is like most poloticians who have been exposed to the Washington culture for a while.

Do I think he would be a bad president? No.

But I don't think he would be the pure conservative everyone is hoping for.

It's not going to happen this election with the current slate of candidates.

I think Romney is the least conservative of the bunch. But if he wins he'll look like Reagan compared to Obama.

For that matter Jimmy Carter looks like Reagan compared to Obama.

I wish there was less blood letting among candidates in the same party.

I think the fix is in.

The real Newt Gingrich



Comment by Jeannie Hinck on January 30, 2012 at 8:15pm

Thanks Chris!  All is well down here in Swampeast Mo.

Chip, I agree too and I have the feeling that as a people, Divine Providence may have a great deal to do with our attitude and committment to our Creator.  Perhaps our lessons are provided in accordance with our faith and understanding.   The tough part seems to be, in remaining faithful and honest, when those around us, are thrashing about, in pain, anger and ignor-ance.  .... do we listen?

Thanks Jeannie!! Hope you are well girl!!

Comment by Chris Ross on January 30, 2012 at 2:53pm

Agreed Chip. There isn't anyone we would want more than Divine Providence right now. But maybe God is making us go through these times. Maybe God will have us elect a Newt or Mitt to finally wake people up that at the end of the day their name could be Newt Obamney and it would be the same agenda being stuffed down our shirts. Maybe it will finally be the end of Kabuki theater. Who knows. What I do know is I am going to continue to write and sing about it. AS I am sure you all will too!!!

Comment by Chip Murray on January 30, 2012 at 1:33pm
I wish we could elect Divine Providence! That's got my vote Jeannie!!

Comment by Jeannie Hinck on January 30, 2012 at 1:29pm

Except as a reminder that the Tea Party is not just, one entity and is not at all, united behind one candidate, I agree with Chris.  The Republican establishment is either trying to shove a Mitt down our throats, or turn us into a Newt!  I don't know if someone has "gotten to" Sarah and Herman, or if they are both, a little ignorant of Newt's history and have become dazzled by his strong, unapologetic demeanor.  Rick Santorum, although not perfect, remains the true conservative candidate.... but he's going to have to show more strength and present a solid plan, if he hopes to stand a chance..... but then, we shouldn't dismiss, Divine Providence.

Comment by Chip Murray on January 30, 2012 at 1:08pm
Well...fair enough. It is a very crazy atmosphere...so much mud, smoke and mirrors...it's hard to figure. Who do you think Obama would fear to run against most?
