If you're a conservative/Tea Party American, you're probably asking yourself this weekend where the leadership is in our government who is willing to keep the promises they made to us, as well as stand up to the lawlessness of the Obama Regime.
A $1 trillion spending bill that erases whatever small gains made in cutting spending, cuts retirements to those who sacrificed life and limb to defend our nation, plus a surrender by the GOP on IRS rules protecting Tea Party groups from the unconstitutional harassment for the "crime" of being conservative activists. An unwillingness to hold a select committee or special prosecutor to investigate real scandals like IRS-Gate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious. An unwillingness to fight, defund and uproot Obamacare. But the GOP establishment will use all those points as good fundraising tools or petitions to pass around.
Meanwhile, who are these liberals that the GOP elite keep making deals with, in the vain attempt to appease?
Virginia's new Governor, Terry McAwful, the former leader of the DNC and Bill Clinton's Hillbilly Mafia, talks a good talk about finding "common ground." His words don't match his actions. He wants to implement Obamacare in Virginia, and strict gun control legislation, after he was bought and paid for like a cheap trick by Michael "Nanny" Bloomberg.
Democrat State Senate Candidate Jennifer Wexton refuses to apologize for a slanderous ad comparing the Tea Party to sexual predators she allegedly put away as a prosecutor. Her disgusting ad is a great example pure liberalism and the reverse sexism of the modern feminist movement--the bigoted liberal fallacy that the Tea Party is nothing but a bunch of white, racist, redneck men who want to take away women's "rights" (read: abortion on demand) and keep them barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen. Not withstanding the fact that women are seen prominently as Tea Party leaders.
Then, there's New York Governor Andrew Cuomo who said yesterday that "extreme conservatives" have no place in the state a New York. But he's just fine with having a communist supporter (isn't that extreme? ) as mayor of New York City.
All that goes along with Richard Milhous Obama calling political opponents "enemies" and getting away in the media with things Richard Nixon never got away with, like using the IRS against political enemies.
Pardon me if I'm wrong, but aren't opposing political views something that was one of the reasons our forefathers decided they didn't want to be under the oppressive thumb of an imperial monarch? Isn't that one of our values that many Americans spilled their blood around the world fighting to preserve? And wasn't it not too long ago these same liberals were complaining they were having their political speech oppressed, and how "dissent was the highest form of patriotism"? Yeah, I still have a long memory, libs!
But what do extreme liberals like McAuliffe, Wexton, Cuomo or Obama do when they are in power? Political strawmen arguments that pit people against each other by class, gender, race, etc (us vs. them). Bulling opponents in an Alinskyite-manner in the media with epithets like "terrorist," "hostage taker," "suicide bomber," "extremist," "racist," "homophobe," "Islamophobe," et al, ad nauseum. These liberals always claim to stand for tolerance and open-mindedness, then, forgetting the idea of freedom of thought and opinion, they want to tell you that you're not welcome in their presence. It is a war on free thinkers who liberals claim don't care about women or minorities. And if you're a woman or a minority who dares to think for yourself, you get even worse harassment and hate-invective from the so-called tolerant Left. Just ask Sarah Palin and Michelle Malkin.
These liberals type of thinking isn't new. It's the same kind of utopian worldview that thought the perfect society would be created by getting rid of the undesirables, the individuals and "non-conformists" who would not submit to the collective. These liberals thinking is similar to the ideas that gave birth to institutions like the gulags, to place those who didn't have a place in their utopian society.
Yet too many in the GOP elite and fair-weathered conservatives think these extremist liberals can be reasoned with. Chris Christie, John McCain, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Paul Ryan. Like Charlie Brown, they think Lucy the liberal will let them kick the football this time, and not pull it away. Every single time, they're fooled into thinking their goodwill and compromise of principle wins them friends on the other side.
It doesn't. All their appeasement of liberals does is put off when the alligator eventually eats them. It also eats away more of our liberty.
