Before we go much further in this series of How the Left is Driving Us Crazy, there is something I need to clarify.
I was talking to an acquaintance over the weekend and, as it does more and more these days, an inoffensive discussion about the World Series swerved into a rather heated debate on politics. Liberal Democrats refuse to give up their utopian ideas of an Obama-orchestrated PC world and how wonderful it will be. When told we’re nearly to that point now and the world doesn’t look so great, they get mad. Not at the failure of El Semi Uno’s PC world to bring about the utopian dream, but rather mad at me for bringing it up in the first place. I’m the bad guy. Obama is great.
The piss ant with whom I was speaking finally referred to yours truly as a Republican Party wonk, meaning I represented all that the Republican Party stood for and had no ideas of my own, yadda, yadda. When I asked him what that was, he had no answers – liberals seldom do. For the most part, they are a stupendously stupid bunch, reminiscent of a herd of sheep, one of the most stupid animals God ever created. In this particular case, I had no answers either, meaning I don’t know, anymore, what the Republican Party represents. I doubt if it represents much of anything. Party wonks are too busy trying to appease the president rather than working toward the fulfillment of conservative ideals, the espousal of which are, in most cases, what got them elected in the first place (and that they will again espouse when re-election looms.)
So, no, I am no Republican Party wonk. I am, however, a conservative wonk. It is conservative ideals that made America the great country it is (or was). There is not a single liberal principle (if there is such a thing) that contributes to the betterment of Western civilization. Liberals have concerned themselves with how to destroy our culture and, with El Semi Uno leading the way, and they are succeeding. Obama is not a failure as a president, as so many talking heads on TV and friends and acquaintances claim. He is the most successful president who ever held the office. He said he would “fundamentally transform America” and he has done so.
If we have any chance to rebuild the America we once knew and return it to its former glory, we must completely renounce the liberal agenda. Everything must go. There is nothing about it worth keeping. We must make a determined effort to instill conservative principles in our children and adult voters, namely those ideals and practices that made our country great in the first place. What are these great ideals and practices to which I refer? Listen up:
We conservatives believe in small government, not a bloated bureaucracy that over-taxes half the population in order to play nanny to the other half, at the same time pandering for its vote. With small government comes lower taxes; people get to keep the money they have earned. Government produces nothing but takes freely from producers. With small government there are fewer regulations, therefore fewer taxes needed to pay government regulators. With less federal government comes less federal interference in states’ affairs, as proscribed by the 9th amendment.
Conservatives believe in a “citizens right to keep and bear arms.” Conservative politicians don’t sneak around making guns and ammunition difficult to buy, with a view to banning guns altogether sometime soon. (I know a guy who got into trouble with the law 50 years ago and cannot buy a gun).The right to keep and bear arms is also named in the Bill of Rights under the 2nd Amendment. What’s there about “a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed “ don’t these the president's minions understand?
While we’re on the subject of the Constitution, which is nothing but a mere annoyance to liberals, it is the Law of the Land for conservatives, who believe in the rule of law. An ordered society is not possible without rules to moderate our behavior. Society moves along smoothly when the people in it abide by the law. When the rules become an annoyance, something to be skirted when in the way, ignored when preventing the “progression” of illegal activities, society becomes a mess, such as it is today. Society wasn’t always a mess. It’s messy today because of the activities of a corrupt liberal government that frequently violates the precepts of the Constitution.
Two examples were discussed above; here’s another: The 1st Amendment states that we are free to speak our minds, congregate peacefully when and with whom we please, attend the church of our choice, say what needs to be said in the press, and complain to the government when we have been wronged by it.
Political correctness is a flagrant violation of the freedom of speech, and it gets worse every day. Colleges and universities are the worst offenders, with the current administration running a close second. Congregate with whom you please – just remember your actions are on camera. Our government harbors Islamists in the White House. Those who espouse this religion openly state their intent to make America an Islamist country; we will have no choice in the matter. Oh, and by the way, it’s all supposed to be kept quiet. They are sneaking up on us. Go to the press with your story – keep in mind the media jumped in bed with the Socialists years ago. The media is plainly another branch of the corrupt government. Very often those who complain to the government about the government wind up without jobs. They are known as whistleblowers and are treated as an annoyance rather than honest people reporting a crime or a violation of rules. Most are treated shabbily.
I hope you enjoyed reading this. We’ll continue with our conversation on How the Left is Driving Us Crazy and talk about what it means to be a conservative next time.
