To say that the democratic party, the party of liberals hell bent on socialism, has an identity crisis on their hands would be an overreach of epic proportions. To have an identity crisis…one must first have an identity.
This has been the problem for liberals for at least a dozen years, and I suspect it stretches back a good deal further than that.
Basically, I believe that the party of socialists, masquerading as liberals who have been masquerading as democrats since the Johnson administration, has been on autopilot in a rudderless ship since the days of Jimmy Carter’s malaise.
While that situation went for the most part unnoticed for decades, it went completely unspoken of by their party candidates and elected officials. Identity is derived from a set of core values, and that was, and is still, the problem for the party of liberals…they have no core values to speak of. They do have a core vote strategy…but possible only one core value.
You remember Obamacare don’t you? The “you have to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill,” bill? You remember…the bill that would allow us all to keep the insurance plans we had and liked…keep the doctors we had and liked?
Obamacare…the “fix” to our insurance nightmare that would provide “affordable” coverage for the estimated 30 million Americans who didn’t HAVE healthcare insurance?
Yeah, THAT Obamacare. It was in all the papers a year or more ago. Remember that ONLY the democrats voted for it. Not even ONE Republican in the House OR the Senate voted for the damned thing but that was before the initial shellacking that put Republicans in charge of the House.
Well…hang onto your seats because that awful, festering, stinking pile of crap is coming back into the news but Obama isn’t going to like it much.
First of all…Obama WAS supposed to, at least according to liberals, insure ALL Americans and they told us and TOLD us that back then, there were some 30 MILLION Americans who didn’t HAVE any health insurance. Remember? Well, that number has now been trimmed all the way down to…30 million Americans. Yes, you read that correctly…there are STILL 30 MILLION Americans without healthcare coverage and the thanks for that goes to…Obamacare.
The world is a damned mess. ISIS and various other terrorist ISLAMIC cults of ideology are wreaking havoc in the Middle East trying to build a caliphate and murdering any and all who don’t share their 7th century mindset.
Iran, a terrorist nation is on the verge of building nuclear weapons with which they will first bomb Israel, one of our greatest allies and then, turn on US.
Russia’s Putin, the statist, is expanding his influence in an attempt to rebuild the Russian Empire after Hillary pushed the “reset” button.
North Diarrhea is sending missile parts and technology to Iran.
Nations that don’t like us much are donating to Hillary’s foundation/slush fund.
Our Ambassador, Chris Stevens along with three others…Sean Smith, Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods are still dead…Hillary knows why but she isn’t talking and her defining statement on the topic which revolves around their murders and her treason is…”AT THIS POINT…WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE???”
So why exactly is religion…most specifically the Christian religion, under such blistering sniping from liberals?
We are seeing this on nearly a daily basis and the new Indiana law is nothing more than the cause du jour for the left. From Al, ‘the reverend’ Sharpton’s buffoonish quote, “This is a key moment for the country. Too often in our history, we’ve seen religion used to justify attacks on other people’s rights, from slavery, to Jim Crow, to women’s right to vote,” likening religious freedom and slavery AND to Obama’s chastising of Christians on Easter Sunday…“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I’m supposed to love, and I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned, but that’s a topic for another day.”
Liberals are quick to condemn religion and to sue over any visage of religion seen in public and they are just as quick to stand up for a freedom FROM religion rather than take up for the Founders and Framers in their vision that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” but to be fair…it is only the second part of THAT statement that lights their delicate, easily offended sensibilities on fire.
So what IS it about religion that liberals find so damn distasteful anyway?
When it comes to the next two elections, November 2014 and November 2016, we…as Conservatives, MUST get our priorities in line or we will not only lose those elections…we’ll lose this country.
When I say ‘priorities’ I mean our platform.
Simply put, we win on policy and we WILL lose on social issues.
I know there are some Conservatives out there reading this who will say I’m off base and that’s okay…they’re dead wrong. They are entitled to their opinions but if they want to take this country back…back from liberals and their warped ideology of socialism leading to communism and back from the abyss of big government control of our lives and businesses and back from the brink of global disaster…They need to understand exactly what the real problems this nation faces ARE.
Right now, our southern border is wide open. Illegal aliens are flooding in by the hundreds of thousands and tens of thousands of those illegal aliens are children. Tens of thousands of them are infested with contagious diseases and Obama has our military acting as baby sitters while our agencies, originally put in place to protect our border are being tasked with being the taxi service that disperses these illegal aliens throughout OUR country rather than sending them back to THEIR countries.
It’s illegal. It’s human trafficking being carried out by our own government and it is a gross violation of our Constitution.
Over the last week, at both party’s conventions, there was one common theme.
Well…Sort of common theme.
Let’s say that the title of the theme was the same and leave it at that since that is where similarities ended.
That theme was…”The American Dream.”
Both parties talked about it. Both said they were for it.
It seems however, that they have two very different definitions OF it.
I suggest that to understand the “American Dream,” we need to step back from today’s contentious discourse.
From a literary standpoint, the tear, “American Dream” was made popular in 1931 in a book written by James Truslow Adams but, it’s not the origin of the phrase.
To find its origin as a written or spoken phrase, one must read Ben Franklin’s autobiography.
Clearly though, before something like that can be written, it must be conceived of and it’s quite possible, that concept began with the Pilgrims who longed for a land where they could worship as they saw fit.
America was accessible though far from their homelands, it offered security from their overbearing governments and it was a place from which they could have a new beginning.
It was dangerous. It was uncertain. Why…The trip TO America could kill you. There were no guarantees but there was…opportunity.
Eventually, the government control the Pilgrims had fled caught back up to them and again, rather than charting their own course and their own destiny, those who had sought freedom were again…Subjects.
Thank GOD we only have to go through a week like this one just once every 4 years.
This was Liberal/Socialist National Convention and Entitlement Fest week.
In a way, it’s a somewhat easier week for those of us who watch the idiocy from a safe distance because, rather than being scattered to the winds, all the major bad actors are gathered in one place.
The downside is that it tends to magnify their ill behavior.
Their true colors come shining through, their abhorrent ideology is on full display and their complete inability to tell the truth become an open book. It almost seems as though, one after another, they’re trying to out-do each other in a race to claw through the bottom of the barrel.
Look…If you can get through the endless barrage of lies, absurd claims, false accusations and abject stupidity…One CAN pick up a few nuggets of knowledge.
My friends and Patriots…Today is Friday and…
Things I confirmed by watching the Democratic National Convention.
I confirmed that the only core value of the liberal/socialist party is…Hypocrisy.
It’s not really much of a value, core or otherwise but, when it’s all ya got…May as well bitterly cling to it huh?
Those who write for conservative sights were in agreement in the issue and substantially hammered the DNC for their stupidity.
This afternoon…in a STUNNING reversal…The DNC added God and Israel back into their platform.
Still omitted is language concerning Israels borders and restricting Hezbollah and liberals will STILL have to deal with THAT issue!
What is yet to been seen, are their explanations for first removing the wordings and then, returning them to the platform.
Simple oversight doesn’t cut it.
God, Israel and Hezbollah were removed from the platform on purpose. They do not fit the liberal/socialist agenda. It’s just that simple.
In fact, in the floor vote this afternoon…the NO’s outweighed the AYE’s to put the language back in and a woman could be heard off mic saying, “You’ll have to let em do what they want to do.”
THERE WERE CLEARLY MORE ONT HE FLOOR WHO WANTED GOD, ISRAEL AND HEZBOLLAH LEFT OUT OF THE PLATFORM THAN PUT BACK IN THE PLATFORM AND KNOWING THE RAMIFICATIONS OF CONSERVATIVE OUTRAGE…IT WAS REENTERED INTO THE PLATFORM ANYWAY!!!
What is the MOST stunning, is that conservatives, via broadcast media and social media, from websites to blogs, FORCED the DNC to alter their platform.
At least in modern times, this is the first time in my memory that such an event has occurred.
Think of the scope of what has just happened.
The challenger has forced the party of the incumbent, in a presidential election year, while at the incumbent’s own party convention, to make a substantial change in that party’s platform after it had been made public and adopted!!!
This is no doubt being seen by liberal insiders as a black eye. THIS is exactly what they COULD HAVE NEVER WANTED to have happen.
It appears that Obama himself, feeling the pressure from Conservatives, Jewish Americans abd Black Religious organizations insisted on the platform change but, he did NOT go far enough by leaving mention of NOT returning to Pre-1967 borders and the staunch language restricting Hezbollah and Hamas OUT of the platform!!!
The DNC, via this very public move today, has shown themselves to be in disarray.
Liberals screwed up by taking that language out of their platform.
CONSERVATIVES called them on the carpet for it.
After 24 full hours of telling conservatives that it was a non issue, after 24 full hours of liberals ripping into conservatives for bringing it up…AFTER 24 FULL HOURS OF LIBERALS BEING ON THE DEFENSIVE AND ACCUSITORY TOWARD CONSERVATIVES…
LIBERALS, ON THE FLOOR OF THE CONVENTION…ADDED THE LANGUAGE BACK INTO THEIR PLATFORM JUST AS CONSERVATIVES SAID IT SHOULD BE!!!!!
It took conservative Patriots, standing up and being heard, to force liberal/socialists to do what was right.
DO NOT LET UP…KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!!!
TOGETHER, WE CAN TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today, at the Convention, not much is going to happen. They’ll gavel in…Go into recess…And hit the cocktail parties because of the big storm.
All the speaker who were scheduled to orate today from the podium, have had their slots shifted and some, like the Governors of the gulf states, have far more important thing to attend to.
ALL the speeches set for today…ALL of them, ar postponed.
All but one.
I figured that, since the podium was open…
Greetings to…well…nobody in particular.
I saw on NBC News a couple of days ago, where Neil Young died. This came as quite a shock to me and, I’m reasonable sure, to Neil Young.
It was Neil Armstrong who passed away but, to NBC…Really…What’s the difference? One was an American Hero who became the first man to walk on the Moon and the other is a guy who horned his way into somebody else’s band.
I’m sure NBC’s coverage of this convention will be filled with the same attention to fact as their announcement of the passing of Neil Young.
