Chew on this over the weekend and be prepared to post on Polituesday.
I went back ad re-read my 2008 CreativeRightBlog post from days after the election, today, and boy do I feel stupid.
I am Charlie Brown asking Lucy to hold the football, over and over. Or like rooting for the Cincinnati Bengals-total disappointment over and over again. I know that I am a creature of my habits, always have been and probably always will be.
My life doesn’t radically change that much, I am comfortable with that. I was worried about what President Obama would do to my exceptional country and my worries bore fruit. I didn’t know it then that I would actually start protesting and become more of a conservative activist. The Tea party spawned and made me feel not so alone. There’s lots of people out there that feel just like I do-millions of so called “angry white men” and radical extreme grandmas and grandpas, racist, malcontents and militia.
I got attacked for standing up for the Constitution and not wanting our country to go bankrupt. My friends and some family members hated and still hate the Tea party movement. I don’t understand their hatred. It doesn’t make since. I’m the same guy. I have principles that are worth standing up for.
But today, the day or two after another humiliating political loss, I am afraid. If the economy double dips, I will most certainly lose my job. That’s scary.
I’m disappointed and angry and have lost faith in my fellow Americans. I always gave the American people the benefit of the doubt, not anymore. I’m afraid that they don’t know what they have done…messages have been transmitted to Vladimir, the fundamental transformation is about to go FORWARD-full speed ahead Mr Parker, full speed ahead.
I’m devoted to the traditional American view and history — vision, as well — of what creates prosperity. The old capitalism, the old arguments of hard work, stick-to-itiveness, self-reliance, charity, helping out in the community. The other half of the country does not and that saddens me.
It seems that over half of the nation just wants their government stuff, they believe they are entitled to it all- free health care-it’s a fucking right, give em their free on demand abortions and contraception and obama phones, food, shelter, EPT cards, childcare, education and union pensions from 55 on. As Rush said today, people are not going to vote against Santa Claus if the alternative is being your own Santa Claus.
This nation of Honey BooBoo’s has suckled up the the Big Gov teat and will never be weaned. I believe in individual responsibility but more than half of the country does not.
But why should they, the richy rich stole their wealth and have always held them back for the free and easy success & wealth of there own. Share the wealth, you didn’t build that, pay your fair share, its all for the social justice and shared salvation. Get on board Michel, be team player. Everybody gets to play, winning is optional. You are no better that anybody else. Nobody can answer the question of what happens when the rich take their wealth and leave or it’s just taken from them and spread around. Once it’s gone them what? They will look at the next in line and then the next- that’s you and me folks.
I feel like I have been kicked in the teeth. Thank GOD for gummie bears.
So, I will be a good loser for a day or two AND THEN I’M DOUBLIN’ DOWN! It’s time to study up on the rules for radicals and start practicing the principle of extremism. I’m labeled that already, might as well go all the way. I’m not shutting up, I will expose the truth of the Liberal lie. Politics is dirty, so I’ll get dirty. Or I’ll come up with a smarter communictions approach.
Someone has to say NO to Obama, I’m up for the challenge. So you’re either with me or against me, my back is against the wall. I’m a wounded animal in survival mode. Don’t feed the animals. Enter the pool at out own risk, there are no life guards on duty. Or I may just give up and get in line like the rest of you lemmings.
So my question to you, my progressive friends, is this; Why did you vote for Barack Hussein Obama? Give me your most honest answer BUT make no mention of Goerge Bush, Mitt Romney, angry white men, GOP or any of the other talkin points. I challenge you to change my mind. I promise to consider all plausible ideals. Sway me.
Just when you thought you could unhind me on Facebook. As I said on Wednesday, I’m down but not out.
