Think Right, Act Right, Be Right.

To a Far-Left Liberal, Almost Anyone Else Is a Rabid Conservative

with 2 comments


Since Congress, as a norm, ignores its constituents, except during the campaign – and then candidates just tell the people what they want to hear in order to get elected, the townhall meeting becomes the last direct forum which everyday citizens can take part in their government.

Over the last few days, we have sat back and watched left wing, Democrat congressional types go home to their districts to face the music for their tomfoolery in Congress as of late.  This particular incident has been a firebrand of the liberal blogosphere over the last week:

 

First off, Sebelius is a hack.  She gets up and gripes how she is not a member of Congress, never has been, as if it is some sort of excuse for not being attentive to what the House produced as a potential bill.  She even responded with the statement about how Sen. Specter could not read legislation for a bill that has not even been written yet (an obvious red herring saying that Specter should not at least be up on the House bill, just because he’s a Senator).  Sebelius was, however, unaware that the House bill would require her to develop “measurements of gender”, but she didn’t even know what that meant.

And then, to listen to Specter drone on about how he has a staff that pieces out the bill and reads it is not the same as taking a few hours and reading the legislation, at least in brief.

Enough of the Mob

 

But the larger issue here is with respect to the crowds of meeting goers that are quite upset about his bill.  Since Congress, as a norm, ignores its constituents, except during the campaign – and then candidates just tell them what they want to hear in order to get elected, the townhall meeting becomes the last forum which everyday citizens can take part in their government.  So the masses come out, armed with a battery of direct, no BS questions, written with a good amount of irritation.  They come out in droves to let their leaders know just how much they disapprove of their actions.  (the left wingers aren’t going to come out so much, since they like the idea of Marxist healthcare).  Instead of coming out, though, the left wing begins to run attack ads against the people, like this one:

So, rather than the left wing try to answer the questions of the right (since all of this stimulus/government takeover garbage is supposed to be a good idea), the right wing gets demonized as the “angry mob”.

Well, we are angry!  And I guess if we get together in a large group, then yes, we’re an angry mob.  And you know what?  The liberals can’t stand it when we get together and protest in the same way that they do.  They can get together and protest a war outside the gates of a military installation, throwing out how much they hate George Bush and how much he needed to be impeached and what not and it’s okay.  But when we get together, we’re the vitriolic angry mob, filled with rage and hate against The One.

So, liberals, before you get to hating yourselves, perhaps in a faint possibility of hope, try to listen to why we are angry.

  1. We are sick of the government.  We have watched time and time again as government programs are introduced that provide a handout to people while eroding our personal liberties and freedoms.
  2. We are sick of our country being directed by big-game tort lawyers and union bosses rather than “We the People”. 
  3. We don’t want to pay our hard earned dollars for abortions for women who can’t control their sexual appetites. 
  4. We don’t want to classify two men or two women in a homosexual union the same as traditional marriage. 
  5. We don’t want to cede control of our parental rights and education of our children to the federal government, just because the UN thinks we can’t raise our kids right. 
  6. We don’t want rationed health care or socialistic medicine when all we need to do is just open health care to the free market and knock off the tort insanity.
  7. We don’t want the government spending our hard earned tax dollars helping Blue State Obama supporters as you call it ‘economic recovery’ while we see it as “pay-offs”.
  8. We’re sick of you touting Global Warming and Climate Change as a religious means of wresting more money from us to give to your Green Movement allies.
  9. We’re angry about your attempts at Social Justice, meanwhile the ethnic group having to make all the reparations and fixes are Caucasian males.  (see my post on racism)
  10. We’re sick of progressive liberalism, pushing our country, bit by bit, towards socialism.  We think Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Patrick Henry, John Jay, and Ben Franklin were far more intelligent than Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin and wish you would understand that too.

Do you get it now?  You won the majority of voters that voted, but not the majority of Americans.  You call the last eight a dismal failure of domestic and foreign policy as a means of blame shifting.  You play partisan games and engage in class warfare, rather than adopting the rhetoric that Obama touted during the election of getting past partisan politics.  And you can’t stand it when we don’t agree with you – so you cry foul and call us rabid.  Well, I guess to you, anyone is a rabid conservative.

But while we are angry with you, we don’t hate you.  We love you with God’s love, as well as fellow Americans.  It’s too bad you can’t accord us the same thing, but then, liberalism teaches to hate in order to get.

So, we’ll continue to be angry and you continue to hate.  And we’ll just see you in 2010, because I’ll tell you this…you will see change – as you see us get angrier and angrier and the Congress begin to shift back to the center-right, where it should be.  By the way, without American anger, you wouldn’t be an American liberal today.  Think about that.

  1. We first heard from the birthers, with their fake “birth certificate” in hand and with their fake outrage. These are the same under tones that you saw from Republicans during the confirmation hearings for Sonia Sotomayor, “you are not like us” or “you are too different”, “you are not main stream”. And then they act surprised when people do not vote with them, they are lost, no core beliefs, too bad.

    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while at the same time trying to take away their rights) and that’s who they need to focus on if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

    It’s funny we hear Republicans say that they do not want “faceless bureaucrats” making medical decisions but they have no problem with “private sector” “faceless bureaucrats” daily declining medical coverage and financially ruining good hard working people. And who says that the “private sector” is always right, do we forget failures like Long-Term Capital, WorldCom, Global Crossing, Enron, Tyco, AIG and Lehman Brothers. Of course the federal government will destroy heathcare by getting involved, Oh but wait our military men and women and the Senate and Congress get the best heathcare in the world, and oh, that’s right, its run by our federal government. I can understand why some may think that the federal government will fail, if you look at the past eight years as a current history, with failures like the financial meltdown, Katrina, and the Walter Reed Scandal but the facts is they can and if we support them they will succeed.

  2. …with their fake outrage
    Right, fake outrage. It’s just like That One said – we’re just making stuff up. We mentioned Obama’s ties to William Ayers and we were scoffed. We talked about his ties to Jeremiah Wright and Father Pfleger and we’re just “makin’ stuff up.” And now, we’re irritated over the Administration’s move towards a socialistic form of government and our ire, which is very real, if liberal democrats would actually take the time to listen to us

    I’m not on the birther bandwagon, but there are questions regarding the topic. Perhaps once something more concrete surfaces, I’ll comment on it. For now, there are questions and conjecture.

    These are the same under tones that you saw from Republicans during the confirmation hearings for Sonia Sotomayor

    No they’re not. To say so implies nothing more than fallacious generalization. The objections to Sotomayor are soley regarding the point that we don’t believe she will rule according to law, but rather to emotion and her activist background. But I could care less about Sotomayor these days, because her appointment is zero sum, as she’s replacing Souter.

    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right

    If you truly believe that, then that shows how little you know about the GOP or the religious right. If you go back to the 2008 elections, many religious right organizations, such as the Christian Coalition and Focus on the Family were very much against John McCain as a candidate, because they didn’t consider him to be conservative enough.

    The GOP today has not become the ward of the religious right, but rather has become more at odds with the religious right, given the GOP’s adherance to the “big tent” philosophy. The GOP does best when it settles on a center right political philosophy of social and fiscal conservatism. The GOP is not there presently; it’s more to the left than to the right, as you say.

    With respect to military medicine, well, I am a vet and I know a number of vets that would disagree with you. The care is rationed and not administered evenly between active duty service members, retirees and dependents. Better care occurs within the private sector, not the military system. The hospitals are better, the doctors are better qualified, and the staff care is far better. I know this because I’ve been there. I would prefer the military adopt more of the civilian way of medical care than the reverse.

    …but the facts is they can and if we support them they will succeed

    The facts? Those are not facts, they are opinions, opinions targeting the Bush Administration for the sole purpose of creating and perpetuating the “demon”.

    Liberals require a demon in order to effect change because their ideas, on their own, don’t stand up well.

    Today, the polls (Gallup) are beginning to show that 52% of Americans disapprove of the health care idea, now that people are actually seeing what Obama wants to do – completely overhaul the health system. He continues to cite the “eight years of failed policy”, but his policy is to ramrod enormous spending bills through congress and to his desk for sign off before the public realizes what they truly are.

    Right now, as I write this, I’m watching the Senate discuss infusing the Cash for Clunkers program with an additional $2B – and I’ve looked at this program as a bad idea from the start, because of more mishandling of taxpayer money, more government intervention – I can’t stand it.

    I will admit that the handling of Katrina was an atrocity, but then, that goes with what I’ve maintained on this blog – that when the government gets in the middle of something, it screws it up. Instead of FEMA, I would have advocated using relief organizations like Red Cross, United Way, and Habitat for Humanity. That would have alleved the pressure a lot faster.

    As for the government succeeding, I’ll shamelessly echo Limbaugh’s comment and say, I hope they fail. Government intervention is something that the Founders hoped to avoid and right now, I think the Founders would be appalled at the intervention.
