There is one trend in this country that is bugging the living heck out of me. And that is, everyone has taken it upon themselves to Redefine what Conservatism stands for.
The Republican party no longer stands for Conservatism because we have allowed the Democrats and Moderate to left leaning Republicans to redefine what the party stood for. My idea on this is that the problem with government is they are wrong too often, and right too little.
That being said, here is what is needed in the Conservative party. *Now you notice I didn’t say Republican, because the Republican party is where the Democrat party was 25 years ago. Republican’s are no longer Conservative. They are at best, left leaning Republicans. Left leaning because they have stopped thinking for themselves, and are letting everyone else dictate what they stand for. I have decided that is the problem with the Repubicans, and therefore, I do not follow the dictates of the party anymore. I am, and always have been a conservative. I will not change my morals and ideals just because someone comes along and decided to challenge me on them. My ideals come from the Constitution, and the founding fathers ideals of what this country should stand for.
The Constitution is one of the most clear and concise documents that was ever written, and I feel, as do the Founding Fathers, that it was divinely inspired.
But no matter what, it seems that all we ever hear from our superior courts are that they do not know what the Constitution or the Amendments of it really stand for, or what the founding father’s meant by putting certain things in it, yet, what mostly seems to stick in their craw, is the fact that something in the founding documents do not say what they want them to say. So, in their own ways, the Democrats and the Wimpy Republicans have been on a crusade to change the wording of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If they can’t do it by doing it legally, then they try to change the makeup of the courts so they are more liberal, calling that a balanced court….so they can get things changed “legally”.
To me today, there are few out there that are true Conservatives. Even Newt at times has strayed away from the Dictates of the moral right, which has confused me a little. During the last campaign, John McCain was saying that he was the only true Conservative out there……yet, he was no where near a Conservative.
It seems that all I ever hear now-a-days, is that the era of Reagan is dead, and we need to remake ourselves so that we can win elections again, yet, with every change, we are moving farther and farther away from the things that won us our elections when Reagan won and when Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. won. They won on Conservatism. Granted, GW Bush didn’t stay there, but that is where they all started. And they won handily.
Lately, the Republicans have been losing elections and no one seems to know the reason why. Well, I do.
The reason why is because the Republican party has abandoned it’s base principles, and and have started a mass exodus to the left. I my friends will not do that. I have my ideals, that were bred into me from childhood on how great this country is, and it concerns me terribly to have our so called President running all over the world apologizing for everything that this country, or anyone else has done, in our stead. What the left, and the supposed “new right” need to realize, is that America is not the only one in the world that has been wrong. And praising the ones that are wrong, is not the way to go. Obama, Reid and Pelosi, you listening? Probably not…….
The problem that we as Americans face today, is not just from our Enemies, but also from our own government, who seems to think as the enemies do, that America is at fault for everything that is happening in this world that is bad. Forget that we are not the ones beheading Americans to get a point across….they are. And because of it we are at war. Obama has now effectively changed the name of the enemy combatants, and terrorists.
The main point of the problem we have today is this. The era of Reagan isn’t dead. Only the Democrats and the liberals wish that to be true. They are better at communicating their wants and desires that we are, because they speak up and get they’re point across, whereas, we do not. We live our lives and work and love and continue on with what we feel as Americans. We do not feel that as American’s we are at war with other Americans, like the Liberals do. When in truth we are. And the sooner we remember that America is worth fighting for, and needs to be fought for, the sooner we can try to get this country back on track.
Today, Obama and Cheney’s war of the speeches is all the rage, with the media of course touting how great Obama was and tearing down what Cheney said. But here is the problem people. Obama, is nothing but a junior statesman, who has no clue about what he is doing, and his childlike ways of trying to “help” this nation is nothing more than a bogus, childlike rant that will do nothing but hurt this nation. His desire to shut down Guantanamo, without so much as a plan about what to do with the Terrorists held there, is not a smart move in any book. Whereas, Obama is childlike and clueless, Cheney, is a senior statesman, with a love for this nation, and a love for Common sense.
Cheney says that the steps taken after 9/11, and the steps since then have been taken due to the fact that they spent time in a bunker after the attacks, and did everything they could to keep this nation safe from another attack. And my friends, they have succeeded. And History, after all the notes and memos and plans of the enemy come out, will be good to Bush and Cheney. NOT SO MUCH for Obama.
Obama’s view of this is like an armchair quarterback who really has no concept of how the game is played, yet he is pushing his inexperienced ideals on the rest of us, knowing he doesn’t know what is going on, but making his ideas, law so we have to follow them no matter what it does to this country.
Right now we have two wars. we have the war on terror, which is what it really is, not what Obama now calls it, and we have the war for our country.
Both wars HAVE TO be won. Not run from, or renamed. This country’s future, and ours, depends on it.
God Bless America and her troops
