Towards the end of the Cold War, the artist Sting wrote a song called “Russians”. It was a poignant statement made “I hope the Russians love their children too”. The only thing that anyone could point to, when trying to find reassurance that there would not be a mushroom cloud lit on the horizon, was that there was a mutual assurance of complete destruction if one side decided to actually push the button.
Today, I find myself asking a similar question. Do the Democrats love their children too? Can we count on them to actually not push the red button of government run health-care? Bailouts. Cap and trade.
When will the parental instinct kick in to protect their children, their future and the country they love. If the eventual outcome of ones ideology is destructive to self, kin and country – stop.
Just say “Nyet”.
