The Left loves to bash the TEA Party as though it was some form of radicalism to believe in less government interference in our lives and businesses, lower taxes so that we who produce it keep MORE of what we produce vice having the government take it, by force or threat of force, for redistribution to those who did not earn it (Earned Income Credit)! And that our stance for more individual freedom, along with individual accountability and responsibility, is somehow wrongheaded as well!
Barry Goldwater stated:
“I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden… And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ interests, I shall reply that I was informed their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.”
What more can be said except that the above quote IS the very essence of Conservatism! How can the Left decry that LESS government in our lives is a bad thing unless THEIR stance is to have a Nanny State so involved in our lives that they wipe our asses from the cradle to the grave? How can the Left decry that lower taxation is bad unless they are so corrupt, so lazy, and so stupid that they cannot work for their daily bread and must reach into the pockets of others in a form of legalized robbery? Indeed, the Left CHEERS the daily attacks on the Constitution by an Illegal Alien in the White House AND his Barking Dog Eric Witholder which is mind-boggling as that is the very document that GUARANTEES THEIR FREEDOM AND RIGHTS! Do they seek to enslave themselves and if so, please, leave real red-blooded freedom-loving, liberty-minded Americans out of it.
Lenin described the Obama Regime decades before it appeared as a brown stain in America’s skivvies: “The scientific concept of dictatorship means nothing else but this: power without limit, resting directly upon force, restrained by no laws, absolutely unrestricted by rules.”
And yet THIS is what the Left wants for America, a clown in the White House, dancing on Soros’ strings, unrestrained by laws or the Constitution. One word springs to mind…Abhorrent.
What the Left refuses to believe, even as they attack it daily, is that Conservatism is alive and well in the United States of America, even in Blue States with our comrades trapped behind enemy lines! Our Conservatism is set in a solid bedrock, a mindset that embraces moral order vice moral disorder (the chaos of liberalism), private property and the freedom of ownership, difference of thought and action (freedom of choice) vice the political correctness of liberalism, the continuity of a nation’s customs and traditions, the rule of law and NOT the rule of man, and finally, change based on success and whether it is good for the whole not just the target “protected class” and definitely not the chaotic willy-nilly switcheroo of liberalism.
“Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed.” Barry Goldwater
Again Conservatism comes to the rescue and shows the way to AVOID a tyranny not unlike what we have soiling the White House and the DOJ today. Who could imagine that a corrupt empty suit would pick a 60′s radical racist and seller of pardons to be the head of the DOJ and who could have predicted that turncoats (19 GOPers) like Linda Grahamnesty, Juan McLame, and Alaska’s own idiot, Murkowski would actually vote to CONFIRM this race-baiting communist lapdog? What fool would have a think-skinned racist red diaper baby in the White House and then give him top cover with a racist running the DOJ, who would ultimately refuse to investigate ANY wrong-doings within the Obama Regime and who is likely HELPING them obfuscate justice.
Thus at the very core of Conservatism IS a distrust of and suspicion of, excessive government, which returns us to the belief of the TEA Party that LESS government power and LESS government intervention is a good thing! And what separates US from the Left is that WE demand just enough government to run the nation as per the Constitution while the Left IS a power-mad, Nanny-State authoritarian regime that seeks to run everyone’s lives 24/7, with no need for the “little people” to do any thinking on their own (enter the dumbing-down of America by the Dept of Ed and the DNC) and once in place, government domination for at least two generations is the future. Note that Obama denies any Nanny State motivations but then turns around and allows the NSA to spy on Americans (not our enemies), uses the IRS to attack his political enemies and to throw an election, and who uses the bully pulpit to attack privatve citizens for speaking out, i.e., Rush Limbaugh!
Lies are the cover for their corrupt actions and while Senator Dingy Greed mewls that the southern border is secure, Obama and his allies run trains of human locust over the border. Remember folks, ACTIONS speak louder than words and the TEA Party fights for the Constitution while the Left seeks to shred and burn it. THAT then, is the difference between them and us and may it always be so.
