Democrats: The Bad News Bears|
April 5, 2008
When tough guy interviewer Bill O'Reilly had his much anticipated interview with Hillary last week, Hillary stated flatly,
"We can not win militarily in Iraq." This answer, like so many others, went unchallenged.
Despite the fact that we are in the process of a military win in Iraq. Can you spell
The media and the Democrats are largely silent on Iraq these days. Unless its to
celebrate the anniversary of the Bush photo op declaring "Mission Accomplished".
Or to throw roadblocks in the way of the, now successful, surge. Or to keep the
body count in the public eye. Or to demand we withdraw our troops from Iraq.
Or to appear fiscally conservative by trying to hold up funding for our soldiers.
I guess that money could be better spent funding Hillary's $2.3B in earmarks. Or
by funding Alaska's 'bridge to nowhere.'
Just last week The DNC ran an ad showing our soldiers being blown up. The terrorists loved that one.
Now that victory appears possible in Iraq, the Democrats refuse to congratulate or even acknowledge
the fact that after many years, we've turned the corner, and the blood, sweat and
tears of our brave soldiers are finally starting to reap rewards. Last week,
a group of Iraqi citizens saw a terrorist set off a car
bomb. They chased this guy down and turned him in to the Iraqi police. I'd say that's
progress. The Democrats won't.
A shameful thing is happening in America. Possibly half of our elected officials
are invested in, and actively promoting America's defeat in Iraq. It has somehow
become acceptable, even commonplace, for a politician to put his own agenda ahead
of the security of our country. Some, like Ron
Paul, are acting out of honestly held principles. The majority, however, welcome
and celebrate any and all setbacks in Iraq in order to further their own political agendas.
Success in Iraq, any American success, would destroy the illusion Democrats have been
building for 40 years or so. The illusion that America is an oppressor nation, that
we are a greedy, indifferent, selfish country that only profits off the backs of
the less fortunate. David Horowitz sums it up better than I in his new book, 'Party
When is the last time you heard Nancy Pelosi or Hillary or any other Democrat leader
celebrate the greatness of America? In just the last few weeks, the stock market
risen almost 11%., durable goods orders rose more than expected. For the
first time in three years future traders are betting on a rising dollar, jobless claims are down and This is depressing
news to Democrats. So they ignore it and continue to convey the notion that the
economy has tanked and the only solution is a government solution, administered
by them, of course.
Any bad news is good news for Democrats. It is an occasion to summon the cameras,
propose more government solutions, with a little hike in investments
(taxes, for those of you in government schools) and demand more government. Just
vote for them. They really care.
Rising gas prices? A great opportunity to demonize the evil capitalists that run
the oil companies. Despite the fact that government is reaping more 'windfall profits'
from our gas dollar in the form of taxes than the oil companies. Dems continue to
deny America the ability to manufacture nuclear power. They declare our very own
vast oil resources off limits for drilling. They're even proposing new gas taxes.
Global warming? Its a crisis and only government can keep the earth from melting.
Democrats keep silent about the fact that NASA, one of the leading global warming
advocates, just stated that the earth is now entering a cooling period.
The worse the news, the more American citizens
will look to the government for solutions. And if there isn't any bad news, they'll
manufacture it. Isn't it odd how we only have a homeless crisis when Republicans
are in power?
Sadly, this tactic is working. Federal, state and local governments are hiring new workers at the fastest pace in six years. More
and more of our lives are being subject to government control. At our expense. An
ever increasing number of our elected officials now operate under the notion that
the ends justify the means. Reagan had it right when he stated that government is
the problem, not the solution.
America has become hostage to the ego and narcissism of the our elected officials.
These 'elites' show, by their actions, that they are more interested in attaining
power than in protecting and preserving America. Like centuries of Marxists and
communists, Democrats are intent on tearing down our country, our institutions,
our families, our traditional values and our heritage of Christianity in order to
rebuild it to conform to their latest version of utopia.
Elected officials take an oath of office when they are sworn in. They swear to protect
and defend America and our Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
My question is, who will
protect us from them?
