Where do I begin? The Left over the last few days have said some really crazy stuff during the DNC convention. Delegates threatening Mitt Romney, to Sandra Fluke talking about conservatives as if we want to see women raped and not allow them to buy birth control. But wait, there’s more…
Oh, there is more. After criticism from people for expelling God from the DNC platform, the party had to have a vote by the delegates to bring Him back in. In fact, the vote was split pretty much in half prompting the guy in charge to take the vote multiple times to get the 2/3 majority needed to decide the question at hand. When there clearly was no real majority either way, he announced there was and permitted the Almighty back into the ranks of the elustrious DNC platform.
Let’s see, what else was said? Oh yeah, Sandra Fluke (you know, the woman who lobbied for subsidized birth control because it costs her too much to buy her own) said that Republicans would make it difficult for women to get birth control and that the only people who would have it, wouldn’t use it. She went on to make ridiculous remarks like conservatives are bigots. Whether you’re liberal or conservative, calling someone a bigot is a huge accusation.
Sandra Fluke, you’re about as dumb as a bag of rocks. You need to go back and check your facts and use some common sense before letting yourself be a propaganda machine for anyone.
John Kerry goes on the assault against Romney’s foreign policy. First off, this coming froma guy who betrayed his fellow soldiers and no supports a president who uses his position to alopogize to the world for our greatness.
The DNC, overall, goes on the offensive about how the US should be more modest and how we should do more for others. What they fail to realize is that the US is the most giving and charitable country in the history of the world. We have sacrificed more of our people to the cause of liberty for other countries than anyone else. Our citizens send more of our hard earned money to people who have less than any other country, and the Dems still want us to do more and have less.
The Left should be ashamed of themselves for making up the kinds of crap they do about the Right. They should be ashamed of the way they portray the nation and how they treat our Constitution.
Bill Clinton came out and gave a rousing speech, using muddied statistics and half truths, about how we need to keep Barry in office, while we all know there’s bad blood between them. Clinton is a shrewd politician and he’s using this as a way to get Hillary back in the running for the White House in 2016… if Obama and the left hasn’t ruined the country beyond hope by then.
And then there was the giant American flag left lying on the ground by the DNC people. Yeah, seriously. At the University of Iowa while getting ready for Obama to come speak, they left our colors laying on the ground like its nothing. While I doubt he’ll say anything about it, I would hope Obama would address it and tell the students to stop disrespecting the flag.
These people on the left seem to care about one thing really… becoming a welfare state. It seems they want to take more from the people and give more to the government, as well as get more from the government. They tend to show utter disrespect for anyone who doesn’t agree with them and they’re very quick to get nasty while asking for tolerance.
I really hope the GOP wins the White House and the majority in both Houses this time around. Our country really needs to get back on a more conservative track.
The Left has gone the way Reagan said in his Oct 27, 1964 speech for Barry Goldwater and we’re, as a country, at the same crossroads as he spoke of. The words of Ronald Reagan hold as true now as they did then.
Admittedly, there’s a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face—that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand—the ultimatum. And what then—when Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we’re retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary, because by that time we will have been weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he’s heard voices pleading for “peace at any price” or “better Red than dead,” or as one commentator put it, he’d rather “live on his knees than die on his feet.” And therein lies the road to war, because those voices don’t speak for the rest of us.
You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin—just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.
You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.” And this—this is the meaning in the phrase of Barry Goldwater’s “peace through strength.” Winston Churchill said, “The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits—not animals.” And he said, “There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.
We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.
We will keep in mind and remember that Barry Goldwater has faith in us. He has faith that you and I have the ability and the dignity and the right to make our own decisions and determine our own destiny.
Thank you very much.
See any similarities? Reagan was a brilliant man. I sure do hope Romney will be our next Reagan. Keep watching the left for more crazy and hilarious antics and I’ll keep writing about them.
