Specter's Folly

“Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.“ Paine, Thomas Common Sense-1776

After the infiltration of a Nikita Khrushchev speech by the Israeli Mossad, and the information obtained was digested by the world, the American Communist Party imploded, sending out shrapnel in heavy direction. The New Left was organized as a direct result, and, my friends, after nearly fifty years of tireless protests, canvassing, filling our universities with Marxist professors, and paying off their constituents in the form of welfare, they may be able to declare victory. The defection of one Arlen Specter from the GOP to the party of Stalin has completed the trifecta in American Politics.

The White House is occupied by one of its own, by virtue of the immense wisdom of the electorate, the House of Representatives is listing farther and farther to the left, almost to the point of capsizing, and the U.S. Senate has obtained the Holy Grail of protocol, The Filibuster-Proof majority. Al Franken’s seat is being kept warm by Ms. Pelosi via a huge bag of ACORNs, and his victory in Minnesota is a given. This political party has been tireless, focused, and united.

The GOP, by contrast, has been anything but. The RNC abandoned Gingrich’s Contract with America, fired Haley Barbour (or asked him to quit), who at that time was the architect primarily responsible for gaining majorities of both houses of congress for the first time on forty years. That proved to be the apex of the GOP, the top of the bell curve, and ever since that day have been flying on fumes.

The Iraq debacle is a microcosm of GOP strategy; limited vision, reactionary and fluid strategy, rules of engagement determined by non-military officials, and no plan for withdrawal of troops. Sound like Vietnam?

The Left jumped on mistake after mistake, and have a clear mandate to govern accordingly. Yes, I said mandate. We, as Americans, ultimately get what we ask for and deserve.

I attended a Tea Party “protest” in Cincinnati, and was witness to the attendance of Comrade Obama’s paid leg breakers. It cold have been a Crips reunion. The sad thing is, these thugs are paid for with taxpayer dollars, yet another example of our esteemed elected officials in Washington seizing control of another segment of society.

We can realistically equate current events with the tobacco conspiracy. Once smoking was eliminated from domestic flights, Katy bar the door, the end result was inevitable. The health factor means nothing if people choose to smoke. You would think that the Feds would have learned from the time of Prohibition that Americans don’t respond well to edicts originating in Washington.

But, Joyce, you are all over the place on this one. Not really. I have pointed out events that are grossly mismanaged, and are part of a much larger agenda that has been in place since the early sixties. It could be argued that this agenda has its origins in the days of the New Deal. We are experiencing increased control by a central government and the steady and rapid decline of state sovereignty. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck.....?

The Republicans have thrown principle out the window for the security of elect ability, not unlike Senator Specter of Pennsylvania. We now have one, big, happy family in D.C., with Republicans masquerading as Democrats, and Democrats wearing the cloaks of conservatives.

“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.”- Thomas Jefferson, letter to E. Carrington May 27, 1788

Our president should be indicted for treason and abuse of power by using the U.S. Constitution as toilet paper, seizing banks, automakers, and soon, the privately owned healthcare system. The ball is rolling, and it may be impossible to stop.

“The pump don’t work ‘cause the vandals took the handles.”
