I left the country. Do you like that tired old political cliché? I did not leave the party, the party left me. Well, I am just kidding because I only left the country to visit my Grandbabies that are a short 14 hour plane ride past Atlanta. America is my country. Unlike the Hollywood nitwits who all threaten to abandon America whenever someone other than the most unqualified and liberal candidate in the nation’s history is elected president, I will only abandon America for whatever follows this mortal life. Before, however, it was the Democrats and now it is the Republicans who have left me.
I congratulate my country for another peaceful change of leadership. It is the signature of the freest nation on earth – the freest for now. I congratulate President-elect Barack Hussein Obama. Unlike the unhinged left, there will be no personal disparagement of the President from here. It is however, open season on his wrong-headed ideas, policies and approaches to governing. The treatment of President Bush from the Democrats in Congress, liberals in general and the news media in particular has been disgraceful, period. The Office of the President of the United States and the person holding the offices deserves treatment with dignity. We do not have to like them, trust them or believe what they say, but we can challenge all of that in a dignified manner.
Middle names, just like Delano, Fitzgerald, and Baines, are not off limits and are not disparaging. History will not forget to record it. FDR, JFK, LBJ and now BHO. I did not hang that moniker on the President elect, so if you have a problem hearing his middle name or uttering it yourself above a whisper ask yourself why you do and then take it up with him or the Obama family. Three out of those four are new dealers. We have never fully recovered from the FDR’s new deal or LBJ’s great society war on poverty. On top of those lingering attempts at socialism, we are now about to be asked to sign up for a global poverty tax among other things, which is a wealth redistribution plan that will send your money to the United Nations. You know how well they manage such things simply by reviewing the Oil for Food program.
America has fallen prey to history’s slickest con. A con perpetuated by political correctness run amuck and news media and their pollsters that were and still are no more than instruments of political propaganda. A very dangerous con that put a President in the Whitehouse who is a literal mystery to most of the people who voted for him. 57 million Americans did not fall for the con. They did not believe soaring political promises of something for nothing - a tax refund when you did not pay taxes, nationalized health care billed as free, college tuition and as one mushy-headed young woman put it, fill up my gas tank and pay my mortgage. After all of those new deals crush our economy; the Democrats will want your 401K so they can protect it for you. They want to take the money you earned, had sense enough to save, invest and build on and give it to the Social Security administration to manage for you. Do not worry, the politicians have done such a grand job of bankrupting Social Security I am sure your health care and retirement plan will be safe. Democrats, take note. It will never be George Bushes’ fault again. You can lay all of America’s woes at the feet of Senator Harry Reid, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President elect Barack Hussein Obama.
Every American who wishes to remain free needs to inscribe this in large letters where they can read it multiple times each day. “Every time I let the government make a choice for me, I give up a little more of my freedom. I become more dependent and reliant on government to manage my life. I am right where the Socialists want me to be – perpetually dependent on them.”
I do not want to hear any more excuses from party Republicans about why the election was lost. Especially, I will not accept that the loss was the fault of Sarah Palin who was the only conservative in the race. Without her, Senator McCain would have endured a true landslide loss and not the mythical one that the media is now trying to sell. Republicans, once representative of conservatives in this nation, lost at a game they do not play well - Washington politics. They veered away from principled conservative ideals and instead played for political power, pork and media blessings. If we as principled conservatives cannot get Congress back and make our representatives toe the line, then you might as well clean out your 401K, take the penalty on it, put it in a coffee can and bury in the back yard. At least then, you will have a can full of money even though it will likely be worthless because of rampant inflation.
Do you believe uncompromisingly in the right to life? In your bill of rights? Especially your first amendment right to free speech? Do you believe in your right to bear arms? Do you believe in the freedom of Religion? Do you believe that Americans should only be taxed to the extent necessary for government to provide the basic services of government required by the Constitution? Do you believe that judges should be empathetic toward the Constitution rather than toward the situation of the “little guy” as our President-elect phrases it? Do you believe in redistribution of wealth through unfair taxation or do you believe wealth sharing is a personal choice? Do you believe in a strong national defense? If you believe in those things, then you need to find a candidate for Congress who does for 2010.
Keep your heads up troops. It is time to strap it on, leave the perimeter, and take the political fight to the socialists who have laid siege to our Capitol.
