Liberals continue to whine

One thing is certain, liberals continue to fume over the “tea party” events almost to the point of having conniptions when they say the words “tea party” and I think I know why. They’re scared to death. You see, they’re so used to conservatives behaving in a certain predictable way. Conservatives are not activists by nature. We don’t normally run around with picket signs protesting this and that, that behavior is usually reserved for liberals and their special interest groups. Most Americans are too busy with their jobs and businesses, their family and their faith, to be proactive in any political way; but liberals exist for their “special” causes whether it is animal rights, the global warming agenda, gay marriage, nationalized medicine, abortion on demand, etc. Patience and diligence has allowed these “government is the solution types” to incrementally shape our society.

Now, conservatives are mobilizing and that’s what frightens liberals. They were not expecting such an outcry. They have underestimated the opponent and over played their hand. Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the others have tried to do too much too fast and they made the mistake of waking up the giant that is the American people. According to a recent Gallup poll, 40 percent of Americans identify themselves as conservative, 35 percent call themselves moderate and only 21 percent say they’re liberal. I’ll bet that stings! Equally interesting, just 3 percent of republicans say they’re liberal while a whopping 22 percent of democrats consider themselves conservative. Could it be because most Americans believe in the principles of free enterprise and limited government as opposed to collectivism and an unlimited expansion of government? Or maybe because we think that individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense are vital to our very survival?

Liberals would never win an election if they were honest with the American people during the campaign. Can you imagine that stump speech? “Yeah, we believe that the government should control every aspect of your life because we don’t really trust you to run your own life. We’re going to tax you every chance we get, it’ll be painful. We will be redistributing your wealth to those whom we deem more deserving. We will enslave you to debt; you and your children and your children’s children will be paying for a long long time. We hate capitalism because it’s unfair, so we’ll destroy it so you won’t have the opportunity to improve your position in life. We’ll be permitting illegal aliens to over run your country and there will be a lot of gang members and criminals in general. We will not keep you safe from the crazy dictators of this world who are arming as we speak, after all, America has made mistakes and deserves what she gets; besides as long as I have a safe place to hide I don’t really care about you. We will have to confiscate all your guns, we wouldn’t want you to be able to stop us from achieving our goals. Anything else we decide to do, we will do but you should know that we always have your best interests at heart. Thank you for your vote.”
