No compromises with the enemy..

To compromise today with Democrats and some Republicans afraid of principled positions is to appease them all. It is to say “We can live with the present circumstances. Despite the lies, and abuse of positions of power and trust, and general hardships and discomfort people have put up with, we can ignore all of that, and just compromise, and put it in the past, to move forward again as a united country”.  However, the present circumstances are totally unacceptable, and to use the left’s language,” unsustainable”.

To compromise with today’s run of the mill Democrat is to compromise with a hard-core Socialist or worse Communist, and is not moving forward but backwards to a time when people did not have a voice in government and were not free. Today’s moderate Republican in principle is nothing more than a Democrat of just a few decades ago calling itself a Republican. RINO is an appropriate name.

The political middle needs to shift back to where it was before Bill Clinton took office or further before we can think of compromising with Progressives and they’re destructive anti-America, anti-Constitution agenda. Only when that happens can you have an honest discussion about compromise.

When the political middle with each passing year keeps shifting left, because of largely successful propaganda from media outlets in this country and public education, there is little hope for this country to remain free in the future.

Conservatives and Libertarians must draw a line in the sand and risk everything to include dividing the Republican party and the country itself to save freedom and America. You cannot compromise with an enemy who seeks your destruction and does not recognize your right to exist. (Just ask Israel).  You must neuter them, or utterly defeat them and remove them as a threat.

You cannot hope to remain free by compromising with people who do not believe Men have the right to govern themselves and be free. Compromise out of false hope, ignorance or apathy will kill us all.

 

What do you want to happen this November?

In just a few weeks time America will once again decide for themselves (?) who will be their elected representatives.   Many are predicting that the political pendulum will swing more towards the right this time and Republicans will gain control of not just the House of Representatives but the Senate as well. What do you personally think will happen? What do you want to happen?

As with most elections I usually go with two main questions in mind: who if elected will most likely hurt me and my family with their policies and ideas once in office, and upon answering that question in my mind I vote against that candidate. Similarly for every new law proposed that ends up on our ballot I ask the question, will this new law help me or hurt me and my family and then I vote accordingly.

For me personally that usually means I vote the Republican candidate as there is not one single policy, or law proposed by Democrats in the last thirty plus years that I have supported. Not one. That is an amazing statistic but I am sure I am not alone. To be fair there are probably close to equal numbers of people out there that have never supported a Republican policy for thirty plus years.

The unfortunate reality in American politics is that there are only two directions our political process allows-left or right.  We don’t live in a time of cooperation and compromise, not when so many traditional institutions in America each day are marginalized and at risk of disappearing completely openly challenged by Progressives with socialist and communist ideas, as well as moral relativists, and their various depraved and repugnant sub-culture suggestions.

I have no desire to get along with, associate with, or be led by people whose ideas would have got them censored at the least or put in jail just a few decades ago. I will not give these now mainstream ideas equal consideration with the ideas of Jefferson and Madison.  For example the acceptance of government security agencies recording all phone and internet conversations to keep us “safe”; or the mandatory healthcare law known as Obamacare.

It is my belief that the baby boomer generation and its hippie culture have reached full maturation and we now are reaping what they have sown. They have greatly influenced most all of America’s schools and newsrooms thus influencing millions of young Americans. Each day their poison teaches our young to embrace everything and everyone without any reservation, judgement or discernment. They also ignore if not openly reject the founding father’s ideas of individual freedom and responsibility and trade it in instead for collectivist ideas and calling it social and civic responsibility.

To many the fact that Congress has not passed very much legislation recently is further example of the political stalemate and proof that our American system is broken.  However I disagree. In light of the political realities and great divisions within our country I am not bothered by gridlock at all and believe the system is working. If Congress did not pass another piece of legislation for the next ten years and halted the Progressive agenda in its tracks that would be a good thing in my view since with each new law it passes it usually means I have a little less individual freedom.

I think the founding fathers had it exactly right by making the legislation process difficult not easy, so bills could not be fast tracked in the middle of the night in closed rooms but had to be very thoroughly discussed, debated, and understood by all to include and especially by the citizens themselves. If only our legislators and President would obey the rules and laws set forth by those very wise men so long ago.

Who will you vote for? Will it make a difference? We will have to just wait and see.

I suppose if you really want to make a difference you should not vote for incumbents of any party. However history has shown that even idealistic freshman Congressman do not stay that way for long. The system tends to corrupt them. To reverse a hundred plus years of Progressivism would take a similar amount of time and persistent dedication to that purpose. I have serious reservations and doubts we will survive that long.

don't tread on me
