Today I decided the relatives I’m related to are brain damaged. Let me rephrase. At least One of them is. We were both conversing on Facebook and she admitted that because she was so broke her kids could afford a great college education. While that is not a sin in and of itself her next comment was. She planned to stay broke so that her sons could both get through college; after all her son needs his PhD! She was thrilled.
After steam quit coming out of my ears and my blood pressure returned to somewhat normal levels I decided the best thing I could do was explain my case. To those that know me; I’m a conservative. I’m a person who’s worked with and without pay my entire life. I’ve been broke as well as many in my circle of friends and family and yet I’m astonished that this relative of mine would have the chutzpa to make such an asinine statement.
To be fair; my relative can probably not help herself. After all; what would one expect from a dope smoking, ex hippie, Democrat from the 60’s?
She has lived her entire life campaigning for the use of marijuana and while I have no problem with this activity per se; I do have a problem with that laid back, tie dyed hippie attitude.
I believe our country is one of dire straits. I believe that we are drowning in debt; a debt incurred by the present Democrat in the White House and a domination of both houses. And no; not all debt was from this present administration; but it’s not getting even remotely better by the bonehead in office now.
What really galls me is that people are not even trying to make excuses with this behavior. The Democrats have gotten so arrogant with their political attitude that they will do or say whatever they please. After all our president does it as well doesn’t he? I believe this grandiosity is a product of a feeling that they have the reigns therefore they are going to just snub noses at the people that actually DO work; do pay their bills. In fact statistics show that the middle class and upper class foots the bill for most of the debt incurred by the poorer of our nation.
So what is a Republican or Libertarian supposed to do in this situation? Should we browbeat the idiots that make these asinine comments or should we work diligently toward a better outcome in the future election? Should we rant and rave about the woes we have with this Democrat; this tyrant in office or keep our mouths shut and just move on?
I think we have to stand up and be counted. Like the hundreds of thousands that attended the Beck soiree; I think we need to look around and see who is with us. If we don’t speak up; the Pelosi’s and the Reids will run rough shod over us all; our future as the greatest nation in the world will be a thing of the past. Our kids and their kids and the generations of kids in the future will be paying both figuratively and literally for this debt.
So to my relative that has this attitude; enjoy it while you can. Because when the next election comes around you will see a change and maybe; must maybe will have to pay your way in life.
