What strange days we are in with recent elections. Democrats are high as a kite and they didn’t even need their daily dosage of drugs, while Republicans are so depressed they might just be better off toking a few. Democrat victories in key strong Republican districts have given just cause to members of both parties to feel the way they do, but there is plenty of reason for liberals to be upset while Republicans should be ecstatic.
The biggest reason is this, that these Democrats who have won, won by portraying their selves as “conservatives” at a time Republicans have been, and their current Presidential nominee is currently doing, moving to the left. It’s not an open embracement of the Democrat party, but rather a national embracement of conservativism.
Liberals may call their selves “progressives”, but remain mired in regressive thinking, just think of two cavemen discussing Tookie Williams, a former gang member who killed a man, then went back and killed his wife and children.
“Tuki good, kill man, woman, cave baby, no need club, use magic iron. He steal fire for tribe.”
Or we can try their thinking in any number of ways
“Man build thing called farm, not fair, I take his food, end hunger, fair.”
“Me no trust wheel, leave scar on earth, hurt planet, me trust feet.”
Conservativism on the other hand is the belief that problems left to the public will promptly be solved, liberals believe that the general public can’t be trusted to solve problems, that only the government is capable of solving problems.
Conservatives believe that people are more capable of accomplishing things, even beyond their own belief, while liberals believe that people are inherently too incompetent of living their own life without the guidance of the superior liberal.
Most of America is conservative, most of America believes in God, believes in working for every penny they get, believes that government has grown too big, that taxes are too high. Most Americans do pay attention to the world around them, they know what’s happening in the world, they know we are in Iraq and Afghanistan, in fact, I’m willing to bet that all but the dumbest 2% of the U. S. Population even knows that there are actually only fifty states.
Actually the more I think about it, the more it really annoys me that we have a major Presidential candidate who can actually screw up how many states are in this nation. This isn’t like Dan Quayle misspelling “Potato” or Bill Clinton not inhalling. This isn’t Al Gore inventing the internet or George Bush inventing words (misunderestimate). This is our fifty states, something that everybody knows by heart. By the time I was out of the fifth grade, I had to memorize all fifty states and their capitals. I couldn’t possibly think that there would be 57 states, with one more to go, (Alaska and Hawaii). There’s just no way, not even by accident.
And while Don Cazayoux and Charlie Melancon tell their constituents how conservative they are, they then will turn around and will endorse for President this very “Patriotic American” who doesn’t even know there’s only fifty states. Because despite how conservative they have to campaign, they still are Liberals at heart and that leaves the door wide open Conservative Republicans to defeat them. Sooner or later, they will show us their liberal character that’s hidden by their conservative cloaks.
Ray Nagin endorsed Obama, but let’s face it, Nagin pretty much had too, we have a candidate running for the President who says stupider things than Nagin. But for Don “Couillon” Cazayoux who held David Duke against Woody Jenkins because Jenkins was one of several people, including Democrats and media, who unknowingly used the services of an organization that was partly and secretively owned by David Duke. Casting his super delegate vote for Barack Obama comes with the stench of hypocrisy. Do you know who the owner is of every business you deal with is? At the same time, you know what your pastor believes. How can Don “Couillon” Cazayoux hold Woody Jenkins accountable for a David Duke connection, then turn his cheek to Barack Obama going to Wright’s church for over twenty years?
And how can this conservative who turned moderate magically overnight, cast his candidate for an ultra liberal Barack Obama when Hillary Clinton is a more obvious choice for the “Conservative Louisiana Democrat”? And couldn’t the same be said for Charlie Melancon?
Conservativism is what won these elections for the Democrats, but their liberal hearts will shine through soon enough. America is still a country that is free, still wants to be free, and will still fight to be free. If Obama wins this election, it won’t be because people reject conservativism, but rather because John McCain out liberals Barack Obama.
