A Street Fight

For some reason, the Republican politicians seem oblivious to the fact that they are in a “street fight.” The Democratic politicians have had the gloves off for several years now. Why is it the Republicans seem ever so timid in this fight? They are almost always on the defensive, and never on offense. Reagan was always on the offense. He called a spade a spade. The Republicans today are even afraid to call the liberals, liberals! Don’t they understand that the liberals don’t want to be called liberals for a reason – the reason being that they know that their version of liberalism is basically socialism. Only Hippies used to believe in socialism. But now this has become mainstream liberal ideology, even though it doesn’t work and cannot work. They do not stand for traditional American values. They do not believe in American “Exceptionalism.” They do not believe that there is evil in the world; and that the only thing that separates us from that evil are the courageous men and women wearing our nation’s uniform, that is, in plain language, a big gun, and the willingness to use it in an uncompromising manner whenever necessary. They do not believe in free enterprise economics, and capitalism, because that means everyone must take personal responsibility for their life circumstances – regardles of where you start. It’s easier to blame someone than to persevere until you accomplish your goals. Fortunately, some men and women decided not to blame anyone; men like Frederick Douglas. Read his speech entitled the “Self-made Man.”

Liberals believe that government is the answer. Government has never been the answer. Men and women of moral character have always been the answer. The government now has the country broke and begging the Chinese communists to keep loaning us money. Just imagine, the President of the United States, now begs a communist dictator for money! That’s real change. The government has bankrupted Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Fannie, Freddie, the Post Office, Amtrak, and now the liberals want someone to believe that they can somehow manage the entire health care system for 300 million of us. This would be laughable, if it wasn’t so serious.

Liberal philosophy used to mean equality and justice for all, and equal opportunity to pursue your dreams. Now it means collectivism, redistribution of someone else’s money, and government intrusion into what is rightfully individual rights. Liberals do not believe in the founding principles of this country, and would prefer to replace them with something else. Liberals reject absolute truths, like the ones articulated in the Declaration, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. It’s the “Creator” part that they have problems with today. Yet, the Framers had no problem with that, recognizing that these rights, and liberty were blessings, and blessings only come from above, not from men.

So, Republicans, when are you going to step up to the fight against the liberals who are obviously determined to subordinate the United States to a bunch of other nations who have no interests in promoting liberty, and individual rights? They have already destroyed the largest state in the Union, California, which is bankrupt; and now they are aggressively taking the rest of the country in the same direction – over the cliff! The nation will be a giant step closer to that cliff on Saturday when the liberals in the US Senate attempt to impose a government takeover of our health care. So if you have not called an e-mailed your Senators, the moment of truth has arrived. Either America moves closer to the abyss or it takes a step back. I have already called, e-mailed, and have been encouraging others to do likewise for months. If you love this country, you best do likewise – now!
