The Bible gives us good, eternal advise succinctly. Why does it take too many of us writing too many words to say the same thing?
Proverbs 28:21: …when there is moral rot within a nation, the government topples.
Fumbling Obama really showed his true colors today in Burma, criticizing our representational system and openly preaching FDR’s very progressive four fundamental freedoms: “freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.” Here’s more of this very revealing report!
Define "neoconservative" -- It's a little tricky to describe the former-liberals-turned-hawks that earned the monicker "neoconservative" without using the word "Kristol," but here it looks like Bill Kristol may have done the work for us. TheDC's Jeff Poor reports:
"Bill Kristol is sticking to his guns, contending again that raising taxes shouldn’t be completely out of bounds for Republicans -- even for conservative Republicans. ... 'I just don't think Republicans have the leverage, or that it's worth using all their -- whatever leverage they have -- to maintain rates at 35 percent instead of 37 or 38, especially if you can take it up to millionaires,' Kristol continued. 'I just don't think it's economically, as a matter of policy, important enough. Then the big deal has to be big tax reform with lower rates, I think.'”
Unfortunately, the strategy of beating the liberals by becoming more liberal isn't all that new. Barry Goldwater even had a term for it: "Dime-store New Dealer."
How come the GOP couldn’t seem to get this – particularly 3 & 4? Winning can be surprisingly simple in concept. Here’s the Abe Lincoln Four-Step to win a campaign:
- Obtain a complete list of all the voters.
- Ascertain with certainty for whom each will vote.
- Have the undecided spoken to by those in whom they have the most confidence.
- On Election Day, make sure every Whig [Conservative] gets to the polls.
"Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization and self-help can arrest the present tendency toward statism... A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers." -- Aldous Huxley
