Days of Change

Day 412 | December 21, 2009

I’m not big on preaching to the choir. That’s why my political activism was reignited by the PUMA movement rather than the lumbering albatross of a Republican Party. I haven’t been excited with that group since the late 90s. That was also the time when it became impossible to talk to a liberal as a conservative without being personally insulted. The harshening tone has happened on both sides, but I can only speak for myself.

PUMAs / former Democrats / liberals with morals are more prone to criticize Jackass and all his lack of real accomplishment lately. It’s fun to watch, but there’s a disturbing undercurrent. Even though the Republicans are at their lowest population in decades, they are still being blamed as the power behind the throne. My friend Uppity Woman linked an article today that basically said that the corporatocracy owns both parties, set up the Republicans to win and the Democrats to lose. Since health care is a failure, the Republicans have “won.”

Oh, please get over yourselves. The Democrats sold out for a win in 2008. They sold out on the war in 2007 because they knew what’s happening now would happen then. Liberalism fails every time. FDR used a war to bankrupt the country with the New Deal. LBJ killed kids in Vietnam while he taxed the kids here to gain senior votes. Jackass is using war to his advantage now. I dare say, except for the Civil War,  more Americans are killed in Democratic administration wars than Republican ones.

I refuse to accept that both parties suck, but the Republicans suck just a little bit more. Democrats can win elections without Republicans, but Republicans can never win without registered Democrats. They are useful idiots, able to follow a movement (like the Tea Parties) and adopt their core beliefs, while the Democrats are useless idiots too willing to fall in love with some cultish figure at their (and our) peril.

Both parties suck, but I can trust the Republicans just a little bit more.

  1. 1. “Jackass is using war to his advantage now.”

    Well, of course he is. He’s about as interested in catching bin Laden as I am going to the moon. Someone in his entourage finally figured out that he’s got to somehow placate Conservatives because there are more of us in America now, thanks to the obamacrats, than there are of him. Further, the only entity that potentially poses a real threat to him is the military. They swear loyalty to the Constitution, not to the president. Should they peceive that he is, in fact violating the Constitution daily, they would side with the people in case of civil unrest. Accordingly, he’s givn the militaryits favorite bone, i.e., war, to gnaw on so they don’t bit him.

    2. “useful idiots, able to follow a movement (like the Tea Parties)”

    For you to believe that means you’ve been brainwashed by the MSM, which I know is not the case, into believing that we patriots are Republican cats paws.

  2. Mary,

    2.I didn’t mean anything of the kind. Going with my theme of the Republican Party ladership as useful idiots, the politicians in tha party are good at running on tea party principles. In 1994, most of them jumped on the Contract With America. Even though they didn’t get much of it passed, they spent 1-2 elections cycles being conservative and somewhat fiscally responsible.

    Barring a “Tea Party” Candidate (and I haven’t seen one under that banner yet), I think the more conservative Republicans will be reliable votes between 2011 and 2012 when the next election occurs.

    I suppose given the choice, I’m brainwashed by the MSM.
