The news is flooded with the same story told over and over…Democrats running for reelection in the House and even new Democrat hopefuls not yet in the House are uniform in running against the Wicked Witch of the West. Well, all but a few really proud lefties from uber lefty districts. But other than those few, it’s as if Pelosi has the plague and in my mind, she does. It’s as if her progressive cancer is communicable. But let me lay out for casual observers the best and most glaring part of the Democrat hopeful’s lie.
If one is a House Democrat incumbent, there is one fool proof (as if one can fool proof Democrats. Puleeze! They are the “fools” in fool proof) method for determining those actually against Pelosi and the progressive agenda and those paying hopeful electoral lip service to the mantra. How did the incumbent House Dem vote on Obamacare? Stimulus? Wall Street reforms? Government Motors take over. Tuition Loan takeover? All the rest of the progressive idiocy?
I mean one can pay lip service 24/7 to an idea, but where the rubber meets the road in the House chamber where the votes are taken is the proof that makes this pudding folks! It’s exceedingly easy to be against Pelosi now when the citizen’s anger manifests itself in the Tea Parties and the explosive rise in conservatism, and attendant abandoning of liberalism. But what did the now “I am against Pelosi” Democrat do when he or she cast their foul vote for the usurpation of the Constitution and the principles of “consent of the governed?”
Unless one is from an uber lefty district the message from citizens was dead clear – we do not wan this crap! Sure the ultra Lefty San Fran crowd Pelosi represents is for it. Big f-ing deal! Stalinists are Stalinsists – no news there! But how did the incumbent vote when people in most of the rest of the nation screamed NO at the tops of our collective lungs? Only one who heard and went along with the “consent of the governed” is even remotely deserving of consideration for reelection. If a Dem incumbent was against all the progressive crap, I say reelect them, but then unlike so many lefties I am a fair man. I have never had the uniform beef against Dems that Dems seem to have for all Republicans.
Forget the Democrat gum flapping at present. Did the incumbent go along and represent his constituents? In MOST Congressional districts in this nation it was overwhelmingly clear citizens did not want Obamacare, Stimulus, etc., but if your Democrat Congress person caved to the leadership’s demands and threats, then you, the citizen, were NOT represented. For the record, our House Representatives are Constitutionally directed to REPRESENT their constituents. They are to do as we, the GOVERNED, CONSENT to, and NOT, NOT, NOT as the progressive leadership petulantly demand.
If your Congressional Representative voted as the majority in their district wished, then reelect them. However, if they voted AGAINST the stated and vocal will of their constituents, toss their lame ass from office on November 2. Remember, even if one is for all the liberal/progressive nonsense, there will come an issue your representative will vote upon in future that DOES NOT likely truly represent the wishes of their constituents. Do ya want the Congressman that represents you to then vote directly against your will? Bet you’ll sing a whole new tune then, won’t ya.
I always caution folks in the majority to remember that while they are all for government being all powerful in giving them what they want now, if the opposition gets the majority in future, do you want the precedent of Congress doing whatever the Hell they wish, regardless of the wishes of the governed? Are you cats smart enough to get my drift here? Ya might be all for “dragging us kicking and screaming” to your desires, but when the majority becomes my peeps, bet you’ll scream like the petulant and immature asses I believe ya to be.
I mean, I have proof. Recall the mantra opposing the Moral Majority in the first Reagan term – “Don’t let your morals become my laws.” Yet now when the ones opposed to the Moral Majority are now in power, they are all for “dragging us kicking and screaming” to their desired reality. Will they then be okay in January when a Republican controlled House wants to “drag them kicking and screaming” to our wishes? Betcha they will scream louder and longer than anything the Tea Parties have shown!
Careful what you asses wish for, cause if it’s up to me, I’ll revisit upon you in spades everything you visited upon me. It’s called reciprocity – look it up, dolts!
