The Democrats STILL Don't Get It.
Ask a liberal about some manifestation of his worldview -- for
example, why he supports charlatans like Barack Hussein
Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Albert Arnold Gore, Jean-Francois Kerry, et al.,
and he invariably predicates his response with, "Because I feel..."
Ask a conservative about what he believes, or why he does or doesn't support
John McCain, and he invariably predicates his response with, "Because I think..."
It has always been easier to "feel" rather than "think," and that is why
our national culture, and by extension, national politics (see
Democrat Party Platforms)
that reflect only the most rudimentary remnants of the guiding principles
established by our Founders. Of course, though
Platforms are more consistent with our Founding principles. Ronald Reagan was
the last Republican president to stand firmly in support of those principles.
Liberalism tends to appeal to the worst of human instincts -- greed, envy,
laziness, victimization and every line of division. Its practitioners appeal to
constituent "feelings," and they thus convert emotions into political capital.
Leftist pathology is deserving
of its own category on the short list of personality disorders, and liberal
politicians have one uniformly defining characteristic: hypocrisy.
Liberal politicos advocate populist themes but are consummate elitists. They
feign (lie, deceive) concern for the plight of the poor while hobnobbing with the richest
of the rich. They are charitable with everyone's income but their own. They
decry school vouchers yet send their children to the finest academies. They
hate SUVs, unless they are expensive imports. They advocate mass transit but
commute on private jets. They express concern for the homeless yet maintain
Liberals advocate diversity, unless your views don't comport with
their own doctrines of moral relativism. They want to preserve
nature and the natural order but advocate homosexual
"marriage." They oppose the death penalty for the most heinous of criminal
sociopaths, but they support the execution of unborn children in their mothers'
wombs. They believed that one nut who bombs an abortion clinic deserves
far more law-enforcement attention than jihadi cells planning the 9/11
attacks. They called 9/11 victims "Little Eichmanns" while calling their
murderers "oppressed." They "support our troops" while calling for retreat
Liberals call for "change" but are firmly committed to the status quo. They
oppose nuclear power production while complaining about "global
warming" which has been proven to be a farsical process to extract more money on the backs
of the poor to line their own pockets. Go look up Al Gore and Cronies investments.
They call for racial, ethnic and religious harmony, but they rally constituencies by
fomenting division and hate. They deride moral clarity because they can't
survive its scrutiny.
Indeed, liberals have turned the wisdom of their iconic sovereigns inside out.
Then: "My fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you -- ask
what you can do for your country." -- John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address, 1961
Now: "Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what your country can
do for you."
Then: "I have a dream that my children will one day live in a nation where
they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of
their character." -- Martin L. King, Address from the Lincoln Memorial, 1963
Now: "I have a dream that my children will one day live in a nation where
they will not be judged by the content of their character but by the color
of their skin."
Liberals have replaced the original Constitution with their so-called "Living
Constitution" so that they can insist on viewing the First Amendment through
a wide-angle lens -- except, of course, the "freedom of religion" part, where
they opt to censor Christianity while imposing secular atheism. They
advocate a "Wall of Separation" between church and state, but they tear down
any obstacles between your incomeand the state. The democrats also
provide religious foot baths in schools for Muslims and ban silent prayer for
everyone. (They might be christian?) Of course, they also insist
on viewing the Second Amendment through a pinhole.
Liberals protest economic recession, all the while suppressing
economic growth with evermore taxes and regulations and then blame our failing
economy on George Bush. Most of them are card-carrying members of the
ignoble ranks of "useful idiots," those Western apologists for Marxist-Leninist-Maoist
collectivism. Of course, that card reads: "Member, Democrat National Committee."
I have no doubt that you too have already come up with a list of additional
examples of liberal hypocrisy. I have too, but unfortunately, there isn't
enough bandwidth on the Internet to compile a comprehensive list here.
Liberal and conservative worldviews often collide for this reason: Disciplined
conservatives put God first, family and country second and themselves third,
while liberals tend to put themselves first, their country last, and serve
gods made in their image. This is the most defining philosophical distinction
between these two groups.
As we approach the next presidential election, Leftmedia
types suggest that most Americans are in the middle -- "moderate" or
"centrist." But political researchers are finding that we are in fact a
deeply divided nation, with many voters strongly identifying with either
conservative or liberal doctrines.
Let's hope and pray that more of our fellow Americans, those guided by
their feelings, will think better of this process and vote on right-minded
principles. Otherwise, it will be difficult to seat candidates who,
in the words of Samuel Adams, possess the qualities of "wisdom and knowledge, of
moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety
and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honour of the Supreme
Being and the welfare of the commonwealth..."
"Liberals, it has been said, are generous with other peoples' money, except
when it comes to questions of national survival when they prefer to be
generous with other people's freedom and security." -- William F. Buckley Jr.
"Before government hijacked charity in the form of the New Deal and Great
Society, compassion and charity began at home. People were to feed the hungry,
clothe the naked, visit prisoners, care for widows and orphans and love their
enemies. Those were biblical commands to individuals, not government. Democrat
politicians see things differently. Apparently believing there aren't enough
caring people, they want compassion to originate in Washington, depriving it
of its true meaning. They define compassion as big and ever-growing government
and a guaranteed check forever with no expectation -- or requirement -- the
recipient will ever better his or her circumstances." -- Cal Thomas
"Since when do we in America believe that our society is made up of two
diametrically opposed classes -- one rich, one poor -- both in a permanent
state of conflict and neither able to get ahead except at the expense of
the other?" -- Ronald Reagan
Seems the Democrats have found this is their best approach to remain rich elitests
at the people expense. What part of "REpresentiing the PUBLIC"
do they not understand? All of it.
Still think the Democrats have your best interest at heart?
Still think the world is "safer with democracy?"
Here is why democracy doesn't work.
