“The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” – Albert Einstein
The same can be said of conservatism and liberalism. No conservative is perfectly conservative. There are some issues that are more important than others and getting a majority to agree on all of them is next to impossible.
What conservatives need is not a candidate who is so true blue that he/she will dedicate themselves to resolving every issue 100%. One is needed who will tackle only the most important issues, those that are damaging everyone’s lives. The minor issues can be left to sort themselves out in smaller venues.
Liberals, on the other hand, have no shortage of perfect candidates. Liberalism is, as Rush Limbaugh and Yoda point out, easier, quicker, more seductive, and the most gutless choice you can make. People are born liberals, concerned only with themselves, appearances, and good intentions, while unconcerned with the consequences or real world results of their actions. All liberals have to do is say they care, act as if they want the right things, then live however they want.
“If I look back on all the crap I learned in high school, it’s a wonder I can think at all.” – Kodachrome, Paul Simon 1973
One has to wonder if Paul Simon was trying to tell the hippie generation who believed they should fight “The Man” and they think that “The Man” is rich, old, white men in charge of government, but they are confused as to who those men are. Democrat’s propaganda and indoctrination campaigns have young people convinced that they are not those men, but that Republicans are, and that Democrats “care about the little guy” while Republicans are only for the richest 1%. If all you ever learned about Republicans you learned from the movie, “Annie,” then it’s no wonder you have been so easily duped.
Men like Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, Jeffrey Immelt and every liberal Hollywood pretender are perfect examples of the hypocrisy of Democrats. They say that rich people should pay more in taxes, that the little people deserve more, and that Democrats are helping them. But they never offer to give more of their wealth to government, never sacrifice their pay to give more to their employees because just saying that should be done inoculates them in the minds of liberals. Obama can take more in taxes from those other rich guys so they have no profits with which to create jobs, then blame them for not creating jobs, give that money to his friends like Buffet and Immelt leaving the uneducated masses believing he is protecting them from greedy rich men while they subsist on unemployment. Meanwhile, Buffet and Immelt are benefiting from huge government contracts and regulations advancing their companies over their competitors.
Democrats have the perfect formula for the uneducated voter. Pander to their needs by stealing from taxpayers, throw them a bone declaring that rich men are stealing from them, and promise to make them pay then take that money and pocket it while giving scraps to their voters. Republicans have watched this happen for the last century and have seen their efforts to get the truth out to be in vain, so they try to use Democrat campaign tactics and use liberalism to lure in voters.
The GOP Establishment backs liberal Republicans (RINOs) who try to out-pander Democrat opponents, and when they fail they just switch to the Democrat Party like Arlen Specter and Charlie Crist because they are more concerned about advancing their own political career than how they serve the people. Democrats that switch to the Republican Party, however, always do so to fight their party’s corruption in always wanting higher taxes and more spending, taking money from others to give to their friends. The corruption has resulted in half the electorate giving up on voting because they never take the time to observe their candidate’s actions to determine if he sticks to his campaign platform.
People like Obama rule easily because they just gave lip service to what people want to hear before doing what they always intended for their own benefit and to the detriment of all. Sometimes the people recognize the harm being done like they do with ObamaCare, but then many are fooled again by promises to “fix it” when all they ever do is make it worse. There has never been a government program for the people’s benefit, but all of them are designed to milk the people of more wealth to fill the wallets of those in government. Eventually, the country will collapse and the people will suffer, but Democrats will be there to tell them they care while they wallow in their wealth and laugh at the morons.
