Chuck Norris Fact No. 39: “Chuck Norris stared evil in the eye and it went into hiding.”

America’s favorite action star is doing just that this election – calling on evangelical Christians across the nation to join him in crushing the creep of socialism under President Obama.


www.wnd.com...

Gena Norris-

“With our country at a crossroads, Chuck and I have asked ourselves what we can be doing to help support this great country we’re blessed to live in and how we can encourage our like-minded American brothers and sisters to unite and let their voices be heard,” she said. “It is estimated that in the 2008 election, 30 million evangelical Christians stayed home on voting day and Obama won the election by 10 million votes.”


That's an interesting stat (& statement) from Mrs. Norris, if verified that is huge. Hopefully Evangelicals won't be scared off by the Mormon aspect of this election.

Sounds like he's indirectly endorsing Romney. That's quite unfortunate. Romney basically made threats against Iran and Russia in his RNC speech, and promised to make this country bow at the feet of Israel.

Whichever candidate wins the election will continue the destructive path this country has been on for the past 30 years or so.

Replace the creeping up of socialism with a stampede toward evangelical christianity?? That is a tough choice. Are there any others? Not enough people liked the liberty option. I'm still holding out for self-ownership.

Oh look, a fake badass is telling us what to think! Everyone pay attention!

Chuck Norris, Clint Eastwood... The GOP is really playing on the insecurities of wimpy men, aren't they?

30 million evangelical Christians stayed home and didn't vote in 2008?
I don't think that adds up. How many evangelicals of voting age does he think there are?
There are 370 million Americans. A LOT of evangelicals went to vote for Bush in 2008.

I really doubt that figure ... that 30 million evangelical voters stayed home.
I don't think there are that many evangelical voters in the country ...
let alone that many staying home while the other bunches went to vote.

WIMPY?? You don’t want to be on Chuck’s bad side!




If he’s right, and if those 30 million show up this election, Obama is in deep trouble. Then again, I think he knows that because he’s already looking for a new home.

I had similar thoughts. Bunch of tough guys made up for movies. Poor, Chuck, last thing I saw him doing was selling some exercise junk in a TV commercial.

Presumably then, he is not terribly worried about the creep of socialism under the republicans...I do feel bad for those who cant see that both sides are collectivists, and against the smallest minority; the individual.

Who is more foolish then? The Fool, or the Fool who follows the Fool?

This is the same Chuck Norris who said that he'd like to be the first President of a "Republic of Texas".

He really doesn't like America very much, does he?

Why would Chuck Norris need to be an evangelical?

He created Mars in 6 days and kicked God's ass on the 7th.

TV stars are used to acting to make money or gain prestige. If I was a TV star I wouldn't even get involved in politics. Arnold S at least got involved in politics but found out the hard way how screwed up the perception of people in charge of the finances of the country and localities are. I remember when people got into government functions as a way of helping their communities. Not anymore, they want higher salaries and superior benefit packages to what the normal guy gets. A mayor of a community used to get a thousand bucks a year to cover expenses. They often still worked a job or were retired. The pay they got gave them little extra for income after buying fuel and supplying coffee and buns for the council meetings. I guess that wasn't cheap enough, small communities are hiring city managers at costs exceeding a hundred twenty five grand a year including benefits. Where did sensibility fly off to? A community of five thousand people cannot afford to pay that salary. That is two snowplow drivers for the winter plus a park caretaker for the summer. The country has gone nuts. By the way, there is still a mayor getting money also.

There is so much facepalm going on here it is staggering.

When the Neo-Cons were born the Republican party became a party of lies. They now openly say that they don't care about facts-they care about what polls well. The fact that the party of lies relies on fake people to call on people who believe in myths in order to keep people from being happy is horrific.

And yet, that is the state of the so called "Land of the Free".

The party of LIES??? This thread never mentioned democrats!


Let’s take a look at the Liar-in-Chief:

*Open and transparent government? NOPE!

*No pork barrel spending? NOPE!

*5 days to read every bill before he signs it? NOPE!

*Meetings with lobbyists will be online and on Cspan for all to see? NOPE!

*Lobbyists will not work in my administration? NOPE!

*We will develop a full budget to eliminate waste? NOPE!

*We will cut the deficit in half in my first term? NOPE!

*I will close GITMO? NOPE!

*If you make less than $250,000 your taxes will not go up? NOPE!

*If you like your doctor, under Obamacare you can keep him? NOPE!

*I don’t want to run auto companies or banks? NOPE!

*Shovel ready? NOPE!



Would you like me to keep going???

Not at all. The premise is that the US is "going to hell" and only Evangelicals can save it. Fact is, the turn out for evangelicals has traditionally be radically higher than Democratic support. This is why they tend to get their way though they lack popular support. The left is just lazy.

The problem is: Propaganda to remain in power. The Cons married the religious right and since then has done their damndest to chip away at education and any/all support programs for the non-affluent. They like to claim there is unfair tax burdens on the wealthy where as fact is-today's taxes are 1/3rd what they were until Reagan.

The nation is on its way to collapse because of religious rhetoric taking the place in public spotlights. Scientific endeavors have taken a back seat to wars where "God is on our side". Where if anyone speaks out in dissent they are somehow attacking their constitutional rights which, according to them, trumps the rights of everyone else. Afterall-they are divine mandate.


I am tired of being called a socialist and a communist and all sorts of things simply because people are too ignorant to bother researching for themselves-and simply parrot the same crap they hear.

Now, we have high places Cons openly calling for civil war if the election doesn't get handed to them.

Chuck Norris is part of the problem, he and people like him drip of fake patriotism. They need to stop before things get really out of hand.

You honestly don't see a difference between being unable to carry out campaign promises, and a candidate openly lieing on stage about real events-then shrugging his shoulder and LITERALLY saying "Facts don't matter, it's resonating with the voters"??

You honestly can't tell when you're being led?

What did Romney or Ryan lie about? Have you done your own research?

They said they won’t let “fact-checkers” dictate the campaign. The fact checking was bogus!

I don't think the evangelicals mentioned in the OP are going to like all of Obama's broken promises...he didn't deliver...I think they'll be voting this year!

I originally was not going to reply to this, its too pedantic in the commentary. But you need a bit of an education. Of course, I have come to the conclusion that "Libertarians" and current "Conservative Republicans" don't care about facts, rationality or evidence-they only care about winning. I am predicting now that you will ignore every point I make and instead focus on a single typo, or create a straw man, or perhaps, just ignore the post all together while "hrumphin" with sympathetic ears.

OP didn't cite political party, but did call for Evangelicals to swarm to the polls, Chuck Norris is also all about "taking back 'merica for Jesus". Am I to infer it was a call for Democratic political action? The transparancy-which you cite 3 times when in fact it is one-so lets condense: This is a: President doing pork barrel spending and B: Lack of advertised transparency.

Perhaps you didn't know-but Pork Barrel Spending comes from CONGRESS putting riders onto bills. Usually the bills are named something contradictory like "SAVE THE PRECIOUS CHILDREN FROM EVIL COMMIES AND SATANISTS SO THEY CAN PLAY WITH PUPPIES IN CHURCHES!!!" when the law actually reads something like "Give open wire tap laws over all internet traffic, add 100million dollars to Lockheed for another plane project, buy all the miniature monkey statues in Deluth Iowa for 50,000 dollars a piece".

Cept that law, if struck down suddenly becomes "OBAMA HATES WHITE CHILDREN!" and the same riders get attached to every other bill. Eventually they make it into one that are mandatory like-keeping agencies funded for the quarter (Though technically ONCE congress gave the president power of a line item veto-that is only applicable on budgets). So eventually those barrel projects get pushed through and the president gets slammed either way. In Oregon the same techniques were employed. The Democrat Gov promised to fix roads. Every road budget plan which came from the state congress had a rider to do mandatory prayer in school. Which-the Republicans pounced on him for purposely vetoeing every bill to fix the roads.

He was a one term Gov.

For transparency-it is all very complicated legally. IMO Lobbyists should be drowned in bags. But commonly those meetings include legally protected information like corporate and trade secrets. Obama should not have promised some of the things as if he actually did them-it would have made tax-payers liable for all sorts of lawsuits. This was naivete, not deception.


*Lobbyists will not work in my administration? NOPE!
*We will develop a full budget to eliminate waste? NOPE!
*We will cut the deficit in half in my first term? NOPE!
*I will close GITMO? NOPE!
*If you make less than $250,000 your taxes will not go up? NOPE!

Lobbyists are crap, I am willing to say it was a political favor to someone to get something done, and was a huge mistake-like Monsanto in charge of the FDA?? That is unconscionable.

He tried to cut the deficit, tried to close Gitmo too: The Cons halted all efforts. Calling this a lie and his fault is as Chris Rock said: Since the man can't cure Cancer, I'm gonna vote for Cancer! The problem was the Cons, the rest is smoke screening to perform the mandate of "Doing everything in their power to make Obama a one termer"


*If you like your doctor, under Obamacare you can keep him? NOPE!
*I don’t want to run auto companies or banks? NOPE!
*Shovel ready? NOPE!

First is wrong. Obamacare does nothing to change your doctor. Im guessing you actually know nothing about the law.
What do banks and autocompanies have to do with this discussion?
Shovel?
Is this some sort of random crazy rant like one sees in a cornfield sign sometimes?


Would you like me to keep going???


I invite you to present rational arguments and evidence. I have never heard of Obama promising to not raise taxes on those over 250k. In fact it seems one of the biggest critiques has been his attempts to "Spread the wealth". Can't have it both ways.

I think it is you confused about the leash. Even fox news called the Romney campain out for lieing. The article only lasted a couple days on propaganda TV though.
