As you know, we offer the opportunity for guests to post columns. This gentleman, Don, contacted me and shared his opinions. Below is his entry. Enjoy it and make sure to give him feedback. Thanks, The Constant Complainer…
I believe that as sure as the sun will come up tomorrow that Barack Obama will be the next President of the United States and the two chambers will lean heavily liberal. At least part of me hopes that will happen. But Senator Obama might mess things up and keep saying stupid stuff and throwing more mass gravesites out of his closet calling it only a bone. “Nothing to see here people, move on.” I’ve been a political volunteer since 1991. I’ve helped with fundraising, I’ve pounded on doors, watched hundreds of speeches, made thousands of phone calls, and been called a lot of names. The one I’m most proud of is Neo-Con Don.
You see, Obama winning is a victory for the conservatives in this country. The candidate the Republican Party has nominated is a liberal. He has some rational views like being anti-abortion, plans to continue the war on fundamental Islamo Fascists, opposes socialist healthcare, and supports the continuation of President Bush’s tax cuts on the Middle class (that was a flip-flop and can’t be trusted). But, he opposes the Fair Tax, thinks oil companies should be charged a windfall profit tax, refuses to drill on American soil and coastlines, reaches across the aisle, and believes that global warming is man made and is going to lead to catastrophic conditions. In other words, he’s going to raise taxes, and heavily increase the price of food and energy, just like Senator Obama. Basically, John McCain is a wacko liberal kook. There is not enough of the Clinton Republicans (Reagan Democrats) both alive and dead (don’t forget, dead Democrats were allowed to vote in 2004, but only for John Kerry) to give Senator McCain the White House. That is, unless of course, Senator Obama continues his flat out stupidity; I mean continues to show his inexperience. Have you ever noticed that when Senator Obama is giving a prepared speech he sounds as brilliant as JFK or MLK? But, when he relaxes and speaks off the cuff, he makes George W. Bush sound like the greatest speaker ever? George W. Bush probably sounded more intelligent than Obama speaking off the cuff when Bush was passed out on Budweiser and cocaine and was talking in his sleep to some sorority chick lying next to him after a Skull and Bones hazing ceremony.
Anyway, here’s my thought. Good Presidents usually get around half of what they want to accomplish signed into law. Reagan had a lot more, George W. Bush had about half, and Clinton had a bit less since he was overrun by a conservative Congress and was impeached for being a sitting President that lied under oath to a Grand Jury in a sexual harassment case against him. Then he was disbarred. But more or less, about half is a good rule of thumb. With that being said, McCain and Obama will have similar catastrophic terms since both are liberals and will be working with liberal chambers. So, the transfer into a socialist form of government will be nearly identical with either Obama or McCain.
My conservative gut suggests this: Since either administration will be destructive, why not let the liberals take the public hit. I mean the executive, and both chambers will be made up of democrats, and their results will be reminiscent of the Jimmy Carter days. Then in four years, in comes a conservative and John McCain can finally be pushed out of the Republican Party for good.
The only time an alcoholic or drug addict can be helped is when they finally realize they have hit rock bottom. Both parties are there, but the Liberals are still tapping the kegs bought by the taxpayers. Conservatives must do whatever they can to make the elected Republicans realize that they have pimped out our moral compass by accepting the premises of the liberal party for the sole purpose of being elected and getting pork sent to their districts. Since either candidate will give us the same results, I am willing to live through 4 years of political hangovers.
Come November, the Republicans will experience an intervention like they’ve never seen. Not because the Democrats will show up in large numbers, but because the Conservatives simply won’t show up. In 2012, the Democrats will certainly go through their intervention. The victor will be the Conservative. And as they say in our Republican form of government, “To the victor goes the spoils.”
