They are, actually, more like Democrat mules, doing the heavy work in the Democrat's continuing endeavor to destroy America. And like mules, they are not really aware of what they're doing. They just haul the load their masters give them. And they are content to eat the oats their masters feed them.
How did we get to this state of affairs? And how can we get ourselves out of it?
In 1944, Norman Thomas, the last Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America, said, "I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform."
Today, 70 years later, we can truly say, "There is no longer any need to vote Democrat. The Republican Party has adopted the Democrat platform."
The prevailing philosophy in Washington "Democrat Country" DC is Socialism. Socialism drives federal legislation, from TR's FDA to BO's ACA. Socialism defines thought and conversation, from Washington cocktail parties to political speeches. Socialism dominates the so-called "news" media that indoctrinates Americans with the wonderful wisdom of the Washington wizards. And Socialism seduces conservative, small-r republicans and turns them into rabid Socialists.
This fascination with Socialism is driven by the inherent flaw in the doctrine – Socialism can not possibly work without Fascism. The homogenization of a robust and vigorous society requires continuous government control and suppression – and that requires a big government, with a host of worker ants making and dispensing a great deal of money. It is this self-serving Fascism that seduces men, and not altruistic Socialism. Socialism is only the excuse.
We spent 296 billion American dollars (4.1 trillion current dollars) and 407,000 American lives to "destroy" Fascism in World War II – even as Frank Roosevelt was busily injecting Fascism-breeding Socialism into our own federal government. We allowed Frank Roosevelt's protégé, Lyndon Johnson to lead us down the primrose path of Socialistic largesse in the 1960s. Do we now have any right to ask why our government has became Fascist?
The real question – the question that needs desperately to be addressed – is how do we get ourselves back to a Constitutional republic?
It is a truism of human social structures that an institution or an individual is maligned only when they are a threat to the status quo. Nancy Potloopy has derided the Tea Party as "terrorists." Patriots like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are being maligned by members of their own party. Sarah Palin was maligned into insignificance by the Democrat propaganda machine. Why? Because they're afraid of them.
When you see people and institutions being maligned, know that they are part of the solution. We must use the most powerful tool we have. We must get behind Tea Party aligned candidates in this election and the next – and the next and the next ad infinitum. We must identify RINOs, field conservative candidates against them, and vote them out of office.
We can no longer afford the Republican lament, "The Democrats made me do it.' It wasn't funny when Flip Wilson said it and it ain't funny now. If you're a republican bygod you've got to stand up and act like one. And any Republican who won't is part of the problem!
