What the hell has happened to my country?
I'm old enough to remember when the democrat party was actually the loyal opposition.
Harry Truman was a democrat. And he dropped a couple nukes on Japan to end WWII. And he broke the steelworkers union when they threatened to go on strike and derail the economic recovery America was trying to achieve after the war.
John Kennedy was a democrat. Also a decorated war veteran. And the first supply side economy President. He knew tax cuts created economic growth, and proved it. He also stood fast in the face of Russian aggression, taking us to the brink but not backing down.
George McGovern was a pilot in WWII, flew bombers. A genuine war hero.
What did these democrats have in common? They were social liberals, sure. They believed things I don't really agree with, things traditional liberals have always believed.
But they also loved their country, and everything they did was because they truly believed it would make America better. And they believed in free speech. Liberals used to say "I may not agree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it". Man has that changed.
What we have today are not liberals. We call them that for the sake of convenience, and so people know who we are talking about, but they aren't the liberals from the past. They are godless left wing extremists. They hate this country and want to see it destroyed and replaced by some utopian monolithic pseudo communist totalitarian government. They would reject Truman, JFK and McGovern today and kick them out of the party.
We are seeing a coup in progress. A large, well funded group of grossly stupid people trying to overthrow the duly elected government of the United States. They have lost election after election over the past eight years. Some 1,100 seats across state and federal lines. The House, the Senate and the Presidency. So they have resorted to this festering lie filled campaign to weaken and overthrow our government. They have been roundly rejected by the American people, but they refuse to accept it. They have reached the stage now where they will take by force what we would not give them.
And make no mistake. They will not stop. They don't sleep. They don't accept defeat. They don't take back lies they tell when confronted with truth. They have no moral center. They have no principles. They have no boundries. They will stop at nothing to get what they want. They will destroy anybody and anything in their path.
I fear for my country. This relentless never ending drum beat of hatred from the left is taking its toll. I can feel it and I bet you can too.
I still don't know what to do, but we'll keep blogging and talking and voting. We won't give up.
