Don’t you DARE say anything bad about Barack Obama! Or else…

That’s the change most Dems have been waiting for: to shut down conservative radio and to shut up conservative criticism.

Obama recently told the Republican leaders, “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done.” Already Obama is telling conservatives what to do and how NOT to do it. Although Obama claims that he doesn’t support the Fairness (Censorship) Doctrine, this is the first step he is initiating in getting Dems pumped up for a fight…and a fight we are getting.

As Republicans have been taking potshots for the past seven years, and listening to the most horrific lies and slanderous remarks about President Bush, the Democrats are not going to take ANYONE talking bad about THIS President. “The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition for readers to express their outrage at conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh for saying last week that he wanted President Barack Obama to fail.” (http://cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=42616)

According to DCCC Executive Director Brian Wolff, “Limbaugh’s cheap shot at President Obama might be the first by the Republican attack machine this year but we know that it won’t be the last. We need every grassroots Democrat to show Rush Limbaugh and all of the Republicans what they’re up against if they start attacking President Obama and Democrats who are working to end the failed GOP policies of the last eight years.”

Republicans have witnessed and experienced some of the worse mistreatments of any President in our history. We’ve seen “Smush Bush” dolls, “Not My President” t-shirts, songs called, “President Evil-Bush Trance”, and even books and documentaries on how to kill President Bush such as the movie, “Death of a President.”

What no one seems to understand about President Bush–or cares to admit–is that most of the REAL issues Americans had with him were inherited problems left by Clinton: bin Laden and the economic crisis that began in the last year of Clinton’s second term. Bush was just an easy target. Everyone wanted to continue hailing Clinton as a hero, regardless of his gutless approach to terrorism, and the way he humiliated our country and his family with his countless affairs. “Who cares about any of that!” Dems cried. “Clinton lied, but no one died,” bumper stickers claimed.

And here we are today, yet again, Republicans take the heat for everything. Obama wanted to shut down ANYONE who had anything negative to say about him during the election campaign–and the media allowed it. Obama is the ONLY President in history who can get away with telling a journalist, “I’m not going to answer that, because, see, you’re just playing games,” (as he told a reporter who asked him about appointing Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State after slamming her for her inexperience in such matters during the primaries). How many times will we keep allowing Obama to tell US, “I’m not going to answer that”? The media would have NEVER let Bush get away with such trickery and deception. When Bush told the truth, the media called it lies. When Obama tells lies, the media calls it slander on the part of Republicans. No one wants to hear it. No one wants to believe it.

When it comes to Rush’s comment that he wants Obama to fail, he was speaking of his policies–as most Republicans hope for, because we don’t want to see our country wrecked by socialism. We’re already watching the most corrupt media in modern time take sides, have orgasmic encounters on TV, and weeping over Obama (Read: A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media by Bernard Goldberg). If ever there were a time in history when one party was being censored and shunned, it’s the Dems trying to shut us up and KEEP us quiet. It was okay and perfectly fine for THEM to say harmful and ridiculous lies about Bush, but now that the shoe is on the other foot, they will do whatever is necessary to make sure we won’t say anything bad about their Golden Child.

While the Dems want you to believe that they are working for the “good of the people”, they only mean those who agree with them. When you disagree with them, they will go out of their way to shut you down. They don’t want you to know the truth, or their true motives. They don’t want you to be educated and to think for yourself. They want to control you and tell you how it is and how it will be. And watch out if you say or do anything to reveal their real motives…because they fear you will find out how phony they truly are, right along with Barack Obama.

But what can you do? They will stop you at every corner. They will monopolize the media and continue to brainwash you. Everyone screamed and cried over Bush’s Patriot Act, but no one seems to care that the Dems are truly our worst enemies when it comes to privacy, free speech, and choice. As Republicans, our options are now: Shut-up, or be shut down.

Welcome to your new beginnings and your world of change.

Welcome to my blog, The Muzzled Voice. My name is Tristine Deming and I’ve been published in various magazines and ezines over the past ten years. I also had my first novel published in 2005. Since then I have been focusing my blogs/writings mainly on my views and opinions on politics and life–my life and how it pertains to the average American.

For several years I have enjoyed playing around with my website, www.tristinedenise.com, but it mostly consisted of information about my book, She Is…It was only when I began writing blogs about politics when I realized that I needed a “place” specifically for that type of venting. It took me a while to get here, but at least I made it.

Just a small disclaimer before you begin reading my blogs: I am a Republican. This does not mean I’m a racist, or a gun-toting, religious fanatic. For years I considered myself to be a moderate-Republican, because although I am very spiritual, most of my beliefs are based solely on common sense issues that focuses on ethics and morals. My faith plays only a small part in what I believe and why. There may be times I insert God into my opinions, but only because it somehow fits.

I believe in right and wrong, and I feel that as a country, we no longer understand what’s truly wrong and have no idea how to be right, or good. As a whole, this country has been trampled on and conquered by political correctness, and because of that we are truly suffering the consequences of deteriorating values. Families are suffering, businesses are suffering, babies are dying, and victims have become criminals.

We are living under a corrupt and inept mainstream media that is unfortunately molding American life as we know it. We are allowing outside voices and celebrities to manipulate our thought process, and in doing so, we have turned to mush. We have also turned into hate-filled, heartless, mindless zombies that find numerous ways to insult one another while following the pack of glitz and glitter in an unreal world. This was a learned process that the media and Hollywood worked hard to accomplish over the past eight years…and they have succeeded.

My blogs, my opinions, my views, my rants and raves, are typically triggered by today’s warped behaviors of Democrats, Hollywood, and the media, and how it truly affects us in everyday life.

Ever since I have “come clean” about being a Republican, I have been called every name in the book. I have lost friends who couldn’t handle the truth, and refused to listen to fact, rather than unreason. And I have been refused jobs because the employer insisted that they “hated Republicans.”

Although I enjoy expressing my opinion, I try very hard to have resources to back up that opinion. I know I can’t stop people from hating me because of what I believe (although I hate NO ONE for their own beliefs), but my goal is not to merely criticize the opposition, but to inform the public, to wake them up, to get them to stand up, and to get them to start “feeling” something again. Reason is not motivating our country anymore. Facts are no longer wanted or needed. This country is moved by mere emotions, mostly of which are negative and spawned by lies and misconception.

One major thing that has stunned me over the past few years is the utter lack of understanding of what Republicans stand for. The other problem we face is Hollywood’s portrayal of Republicans, which in turn has led many Americans to believe we are evil, racist, war mongers. Every party has their demons and their flaws, but to solely pick on one party over and over again gets a bit disturbing…but Hollywood is setting the stage for nearly everything we stand for as Americans today. And that is the real shame we face as a nation.

I often find that the world believes everyone believes the same things they do, and when you don’t, they shun you. During the 2008 election, everyone just “assumed” that everyone else was an Obama cult-follower, and when you came out against him, you were ridiculed and rejected. As if theirs is only one voice in this country. And that is why my blog is called, The Muzzled Voice. Republicans are losing their voice and losing their ground. We are fighting a losing battle with America on morals and values, and life in general.

This is a critical time in our history to have our voices be heard and not muzzled. We are living in disturbing times when our own President pushes the media around, insisting on what they will or will not talk about. We are living in a lopsided world, where only one view is currently welcome. But I’m not going to bow down to that, and I hope many will follow my lead.

I enjoy feedback and comments. I even like to hear what the “other side” has to say, but only if it’s accurate and not based on hate for what I stand for. I’m not merely “black and white.” I believe there are gray areas, and I’m willing to admit when I don’t know much about one topic or another, and I’m always eager to hear why the other side believes what they believe.

I hope that any comments left here will spawn lively debates, rather than heated and hateful discussions. I ask that we respect our differences and try to learn from one another, and I beg of you that you refrain from calling anyone cruel names!

I also hope that you will come back often and become a valued member of The Muzzled Voice.
