Does the name “Nancy Pelosi” translate to cancer in the ears of Congressional Democrats? Is she contagious? Pig flu? Whatever it is, Democrats are running from her like she’s infested with the Plague. Of course for all non-Democrats, we knew she was toxic from the get go, but seems now even her sycophant House minions are seeing the handwriting on the wall.
If progressivism is so wonderful and everyone is so in favor of the Obama/Reid/Pelosi agenda, why are they running from her and Obama as if they were on fire? I confess I sit and snicker at all this foolishness. For the record, way back when Obama was anointed, all we heard was the wave of progressivism sweeping the nation. And me and mine told them “no” in no uncertain terms, that they were hopeful and wrong. But they knew better and rubbed our noses in it as if they had won. Turns out they did not win, and me and mine told everyone that back then. I will confess to a certain smug satisfaction in all this.
I didn’t like being told progressives were going to “return us to our Founding principles.” Having studied progressivism in college, I knew their platform was nothing like they publicly swore it was. Long before Glenn Beck was educating the public I knew who these folks were and their desires. Not trying to say I am all that, but I do not much care for someone to piss up my back and tell me it’s raining. I don’t much like being told I will be “dragged kicking and screaming” anywhere, and dared some of them to show up and commence to dragging, but they were all fat mouths and narrow asses, for but for lies and obfuscations, they could not drag anyone, anywhere.
Instead I would have preferred a debate, or at least an honest exchange of ideas but progressives were having none of that. For the record progressives have always felt the public has too many choices and that left up to the individual, they might not make the best choice for the good of the collective. Keeping in mind progressivism is a kinder, gentler name for Marxism, or at least the dead cert application of many of good ol’ Karl’s positions, well it’s rather easy to see why they will not honestly admit their end game.
Instead they play semantics, speaking to ills and wishes for improvement. But instead of using government to actually house and feed the homeless and hungry, they use their power to consolidate their hold on power. It’s a vicious cycle, but if one knows the planks of progressive political wishes and manners of achieving their goals, this is directly according to the playbook.
They must demonize and ridicule tradition to affect their desired change. They can’t be honest and admit “We want to redistribute the US’s wealth because the US got rich unfairly,” as progressives believe in their heart of hearts. But the other things they say are clearly supporting the progressive platform’s wishes.
So if I say I am not a Nazi, yet I wear jack boots and Swastika’s what does that really mean? No, I am not a Nazi just because I wear Swastika’s right? And progressives are not out to adhere to the ancient progressive platform either. Pay no mind to all their other words and desires; how they act and what thy wish for. If they claim they are not doing the things they are, well their denial should be sufficient, right? So, would my ardent denial of Nazi sympathies be sufficient, despite the Swastika’s and jack boots? What’s that ya say? If I act like a Nazi, no matter what I say, I am indeed a Nazi. Okay.
Well then what progressives say and desire, despite their denials of their real endgame, should convict them. The fact is there actions should carry equal weight, no matter how many denials and “conspiracy theories” they claim are at the root of conservative rejection of progressive wishes. As Obama stands at this moment and speaks to the UN, he is lying.
He swears he’s trying to rebuild this nation when the truth is he is trying to tear us down to rebuild the nation in the progressive image. All one needs to do is read his own words from his books, compare them to the words and desires of ancient progressives, and the real intentions and methods of Obama are crystal clear. Therefore one who denies and instead elevates Obama’s agenda is either one of them, a woefully uneducated and compliant idiot or a liar. Find another explanation. I’ll be glad to consider it if one could offer another explanation, but they cannot.
Democrats are running from progressive politics and damned fast too. Now one must ask themselves “Is it because Democrat finally realized what progressives are really shooting for?” I don’t think that’s it because if it was they would either walk away from the Democrat Party or they would vocally and publicly demand a replanking of the platform. Instead they just run away from Obamacare, Stimulus, financial reform and all the other distinctly progressive things Democrats have done since Obama was sworn in. And that is why Democrats will be so well disciplined come November.
It is not lost on all non-sycophant Democrat supporters that despite the words of progressives, the actions are far more revealing. I mean talk is cheap, but actions carry real weight. Do Democrats, when thinking they were untouchable in terms of elective retribution, act like traditional Democrats do? No, they clearly do not. Instead they do as they wish thinking they have political cover and electoral majorities so big that they can do as they wish despite massive majorities of the citizenry clearly being against the progressive agenda.
In our representative republic, legislators REPRESENT US, the citizens, and our wishes and NOT, NOT, NOT their own private wishes or that of their legislative majority caucus. Obama stood up and smirking, made fun of Republican’s and Tea Party types saying “They think they can run on repeal of health reform laws. Let ’em try, let ’em try….” Well Barack, not only are we trying, but have made public that is our goal and guess what? The public seems all for it based on polling. So, what does it feel like to be smacked square in that arrogant jaw? Hurts, don’t it?
Like Vince Lombardi said “Get used to the pain of discipline or get used to the pain of disappointment.” Well Barack and progressives, how’s that “disappointment” pain feeling about now? Not diggin it, huh? Wish you’d have told Pelosi & Reid to go to Hell, ain’t ya? Too late now. Don’t run to the right as if you are a tradition loving American. I mean, I can’t wear Swastika’s and jack boots and deny Nazi sympathies, right? Well then you can’t talk and wish for Marxist realities yet now scream it was all a big mistake. Well, as we see, progressives and Democrats CAN do that, but it’s biting them in their foul backsides, and that is as it should be.
Run Democrats! As fast as your legs will carry you. Run!
AUTHORS NOTE: I AM NOT A NAZI or Nazi sympathizer in any way, means, shape or form. I used that as an example. I perhaps should have said “one” as opposed to “I” but am too lazy to go back and change it now, and they will call me whatever they wish anyway, so why bother?
