I looked at my husband today and seriously asked, what happened to morality? Where have ethics gone? Where is G-d in our country’s equation? Did I miss a decade?
Progressivism seems to have engulfed both sides of the aisle these days. It’s becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between the right and the left. Looks like we really have gone moderate — in a Socialized manner of speaking — Marxism for all! I have lost any faith I ever had in the parties that be. I do believe it’s third party time.
I watched this week as Boehner purged conservatives from financial committees etc. in a move reminiscent of Stalin, with rumors that he will purge even more. Evidently this was an attempt to appease the left by saying, “See! We are just like you. Please don’t hurt us.” And/or it was to punish those Republicans who don’t toe the line and are too frisky conservatively. Obama made it very clear he is willing to go off the fiscal cliff. Hell, he can’t wait, because he knows it all can be blamed on conservatives and he will get to cut taxes (selectively and marginally) in the end and look like a true hero of the State. While in reality, taxes will be raised on all. It never ends. No matter what Republicans do, they will be blamed in the end. The left and its pet media will make sure of it. By the way, this is not austerity. The left claims that Republicans are caught in an austerity trap. Austerity is not cutting ‘future’ spending. It is cutting current spending and being frugal with future spending. What the Republicans are caught in is a borrow and spend trap, versus the Democrat’s spend, borrow and tax trap. Both are killers because of excess spending and I will say it again — you cannot tax your way out of this hole. True austerity is what will happen when Obama finishes collapsing America.
The fact is, the Republicans compromise because they are weak. They have no fire in their belly – they don’t truly believe in anything but their political stations. Republicans are out planned, out thought, out organized and out fought… Too afraid of offending someone or something or missing out on power and money to stand on principles or faith. Too corrupt to coalesce and fight for what is honorable and right.
Obama is in an all out move to destroy the Republican party. Sultan Knish says it sooo well:
The fiscal cliff is Obama’s way of splitting the Conservative grass roots, who are a threat to him, from the established Republican Party, which is not.
We need to move to the right, not moderate. Not capitulate – that is suicide. We need to return to Constitutional principles and adhere to what made this country great: faith, freedom and hard work. In the end, true freedom is never found in a paycheck – slavery is. It is found in working for oneself – something that Benjamin Franklin promoted and showed the true success of. If you control your own wealth and your own food, you are free. If you do not, you are a serf of those in control.
