DEMOCRATS AND THE DANGER THEY POSE

While I am sure that many in the Democrat Party consider themselves as Patriotic as the next guy or gal and that what I am writing hear does not apply to all Democrats or liberals, many of the actions especially of the leadership and those elected in Washington and the far left makes one wonder just who they believe is our enemy.

When the Democrats were in the Minority most of the rhetoric that they spewed was harmless enough since they did not have the power to actually put action behind many of their words. Now don't get me wrong I fully believe that while their Minority status did not afford them much as far as the legislative process is concerned, their rhetoric did cause unmeasurable damage in the fact that it has succeeded in turning the country against the war and has hindered the way in which we are fighting the war in order to appease these appeasers.

Now that they are in power their words have the strength of policy making, legislating and using up tax payer time and money for endless hearings which legally have no leg to stand on, ( and they know this), but succeed in crossing the Separation of Powers and possibly placing the country in a Constitutional crises because of their demands in continually and needlessly investigating the White House.

So the question comes to mind, "just who do the Democrats believe is our enemy?"

We are at war. A war like no other. We face an enemy on may different fronts whose only goal is our destruction if we do not assimilate into their radical Islamic beliefs. They do not negotiate except to possibly buy time to build a nuclear arsenal as is the case with Iran. Talking in any manner has no effect because they view us as infidels who are ignorant and are no better than the lowliest of animals. They continually plot and plan to find any means available to kill us. They use unconventional means like airliners, pleasure boats, chlorine laced explosive devises and their own children and women with bombs strapped to them. They hide among civilians around the world and even live as Americans waiting for the call from Allah to kill the very people that they have called neighbor for years.

This enemy is the most devious and dangerous that this country has ever faced yet to most Democrats especially in Congress and liberals who are anti-war, anti Bush all for the sake of being just that, this enemy of America is not their enemy.

Sure to the public they talk the right game against this Islamic enemy but their actions and their politics state otherwise. The enemy of the Democrat in Congress and the liberal left wing is none other than George W. Bush and in many cases America herself.

The President in their eyes is the evil in this world and not the Islamofascists who seek our destruction. To many in the far left The United States itself is the enemy and the cause of all of the worlds problems. Congress under Democrats are spending every moment available searching for ways to scandalize the Bush Administration without a legal leg to stand on while playing games with pork barrel politics with spending bills that fund our troops and fight the true enemy!

Is this a dangerous path to follow ? Absolutely ! The focus of the nation and the Administration shifts from the war and fighting for our very way of life to having to consistently listen to daily tirades from canned and rehearsed testimonies sighting the improprieties of the Bush Administration.

Our Founders made a distinct Separation of Powers in government to allow the President to have the ability to receive candid and direct advise from Presidential Advisers. But when Advisers fear that anything they tell the President will be used by political hacks in the Democrat Majority as a means of investigation or attempts to create scandals does that advise then become hesitant or far less candid ? The answer is yes because we as humans have an instinctive right and natural response for self preservation and protection. If an Advisor thinks he/she will be investigated they are less likely to give the President the constructive advise he needs to best serve this nation.

The current hearings climate created by Democrats reveals their true face and their true enemy. The American people and the President. Al Qaeda, terrorism, Islamic radials all fall into the second tier of consideration when Democrats and the far left are fighting for power and pushing to force the American people to adhear to their ideals, agendas and philosophy. Anyone who disagrees with the left is the enemy and whether we are at war with Islamofascists or not matters little to those in Congress and on the left who deem American as the enemy and the President as the evil leading that enemy.

I wish I could disagree with your astute assessment, Ken, but I can't! You're absolutely right, and because they do what they do they themselves have become an enemy in my eyes. They obstinately refuse all efforts by Bush to unite against a common enemy, and the only logical reason for this blatant stubbornness is because they believe the administration to be the enemy and anyone who goes along with the administration. Their socialist agenda sticks out a mile and I just wish more Americans could see it. Complacency and ignorance is killing our country and it's very discouraging and depressing.

Whoever thought up the old saw "Ignorance is bliss" was completely wrong. Ignorance is not bliss; ignorance is one of the most dangerous state of minds possible. Great post!

Excellent Post as Usual Ken,

You know I noticed something on my Journey, there is either a growing movement that is getting sick to death of these anti-war Lunatics and the mess they are causing to our Country, or there is a movement that is sorry for the way they voted, realized they made a HUGE mistake, and are making an effort to undo some of the damage they caused by voting in these Lunatics, or both.

Either way something is happening out there and I saw proof of that.

I think soon the Liberals are in for a big surprize because the General population has just about have enough of thier crap already!!

Remember a number of seats the Democrats won in the midterms were by a slim margin. And I agree that Americans maybe coming around soon. Mix in some self-destructive behavior by Presidential wannabes and Pelosi's liberal religion, you may see a Democratic massacre in 08 if we are around.

One of the political problems for the dems is that they have no baseline of beliefs. Oh, they can say "human rights" and some other rhetorical claptrap, but as far as rock solid principles, they have none. The dem party eats it own during election season, and this is going to be fun to watch as we work on '08.

They are believing their own dillusions of a political shift and a mandate. There was neither in '06. The economy is incredibly strong, and although I am not a true economist, I am guessing that this is one of the longest periods in recent history that we have not experienced the cyclical downturns that capitalism creates.

The only hitch to us winning back the government is a strong GOP candidate, and we have none. All of those who have announced are "democrat light" and I will be devastated if Newt doesn't throw his hat in the ring.

False, start to finish.

Robert doesn't speak for the left.

I am (of) the left.

If any of you numbnuts want to know what liberals think, just ask me, because, I AM liberal, you big sillys.

Robert is not a liberal, and doesn't know what he is talking/writing about. It's sad really.

Like I said, if you want to know what liberals think about any given thing, ask me. Otherwise stop pretending that Robert speaks for, or on behalf of liberals.

Like I said, if you want to know what liberals think about any given thing, ask me.

If I were a liberal, I'd be ashamed and embarrassed to have you as a spokesman for liberalism.

I think Michael Medved pins it down fairly well:

What constitutes the essence of modern liberalism?

Conservatives will return to decisive victories only if we come to terms with liberalism’s visceral appeal. The best way to overcome our ideological adversaries is to understand their approach to major issues.

While conservatives obsess over distinctions of right and wrong, and insist that inevitable consequences must flow from good and bad behavior (see last week’s column), liberals focus on differences of another sort entirely.

The rhetoric of today’s left shows that they see society divided between the privileged and the powerless, the favored and the unfortunate, victors and victims.

Liberals feel an irresistible instinct to take sides with the less fortunate.

While the right wants to reward beneficial choices and discourage destructive directions, the left seeks to eliminate or reduce the impact of the disadvantages that result from bad decisions. In place of the conservative emphasis on accountability, the left proffers a gospel of indiscriminate compassion.

This leads directly, and inevitably, to the liberal passion to sanctify victimhood.

"Enlightened" lefties long to embrace and exalt all those who claim to have suffered from hard luck or oppression: the homeless, single mothers, "people of color," homosexuals, AIDS patients, feminists, convicted criminals, Native Americans, atheists, immigrants and many more. Recent Democratic Conventions have resembled festivals of fine whines, with countless testimonials from one victim group or another expressing hopelessness and helplessness unless the Donkey Party returned to power.

The leftist impulse to side with the underdog has become so powerful that liberals never bother to inquire whether a given "oppressed" group counts as deserving or not.

This explains the odd liberal sympathy for Islamo-Nazi terrorists, whose radically reactionary (indeed, medieval) ideology should make them anathema to enlightened opinion in the West. How can militant feminists applaud the anti-American rhetoric of Islamist crazies who want to keep all women in burkas as the property of their husbands, and how can gay activists identify with jihadi killers who endorse the execution of homosexuals? The widespread activism on behalf of the fanatical internees at Guantanamo remains one of the most spectacular displays of lefty lunacy in recent years. Aside from the common distaste for free-market economics and the shared desire for a reduced American role in the world, liberal ideologues see themselves as persecuted victims with natural fellow-feeling for exotic and angry third-worlders who blame all their problems on the USA.

The generalized anti-Americanism that afflicts so much of the contemporary left owes everything to this imperative to identify with the downtrodden. The United States is simply too prosperous and too powerful to win liberal sympathy while suffering nations (no matter how dictatorial their governments, or how dysfunctional their cultures) seem far more worthy of support.

Every important element of the liberal program stems from the one central goal of assisting the unfortunate. Pushing for high taxes, expensive social programs, universal health coverage, lunches and breakfasts in the schools, income redistribution, affirmative action, reparations, a higher minimum wage, more generous foreign aid, multiculturalism, gay marriage, protecting endangered species, animal rights, enhancing entitlements, affirming prison rights, providing generous benefits for illegal immigrants – all these leftist imperatives arise from a common commitment to protect the powerless and uplift the unfortunate.

In fact, the recent hearings about the shabby treatment of wounded veterans at Walter Reade Medical Center represented a concerted effort to transform America’s military into a victims group worthy of liberal sympathy. John Kerry's notorious and derisive comments about kids who do poorly in school getting "stuck in Iraq" complemented this ongoing effort to portray active duty personnel as oppressed and hapless losers, rather than formidable and willing warriors.

The persistent preference for the powerless and purportedly oppressed applies only imperfectly to explaining leftist support for legalized abortion. The unborn, after all, plausibly qualify as the ultimate underdogs: innocent, fragile, utterly helpless. Nevertheless, they’ve never lived outside the womb and so failed to achieve the status of aggrieved victims – suffering from racism, sexism, homophobia, economic oppression. Moreover, the mother seeking the abortion represents a far more visible victim—which helps explain the desperate determination by pro-abortion forces to stop legislation in Georgia and elsewhere that would require abortion providers to offer ultra-sound images of the baby in utero before the woman makes the final decision to terminate her pregnancy. In other words, they don’t want anyone or anything to compete with the stressed, unhappily pregnant mother for pity and sympathy.

In fact, favored victim groups can lose their sacred claims on the liberal imagination as evidenced by shifting perspectives on the left concerning the State of Israel. In the wake of the devastation of the Holocaust, and with the Jews fighting for their lives against massive Arab armies in 1949 and '67, liberals naturally gave strong, nearly unanimous support to the Israeli underdogs. After the decisive victory in 1967, however, Israel assumed the role of regional power and began losing leftist support just as more and more conservatives came to appreciate America's redoubtable and reliable ally. Today, the Jewish state counts as far too successful, economically productive and militarily formidable to win much liberal sympathy, while the Palestinians remain so pathetically divided, dysfunctional, impoverished and inept that lefties (even Jewish lefties) react to their radical rhetoric with either applause or apologetics.

That's the problem with liberal sympathy for the downtrodden and underprivileged: if you make too much progress, you’ll compromise your claims to advocacy and assistance. The best victim groups are those that reliably maintain their victim status. In this sense, the leftist world view effectively discourages empowerment or the pursuit of prosperity and pushes suffering subgroups to more or less permanent self pity.

Moreover, raising taxes on high earners in order to provide more give-aways to the unproductive clearly punishes success while rewarding failure. All but the most willfully blinded liberal activists understand that punishing success helps to discourage it while rewarding failure and dysfunction encourages much more of the same. The massive failures of the US welfare system, and our ill-starred "War on Poverty," indicate that if you give people money in exchange for idleness you’ll get more indolence, and if you take away more money from the most industrious you’ll get less productive activity.

On occasion, conservatives criticize liberals for a failure to support standards or to make distinctions, but that’s not entirely fair, since leftists do love to emphasize the difference between rich and poor, lucky and unlucky, winners and losers.

Leftists feel virtuous and unselfish for invariably embracing the losers, but with this persistent preference it’s society itself that loses most.

Mudsilly, I was being ironic, hence the very visible quotes.

Also, thanks for providing that link, wordsmith, to those polls. They do, as you I'm guessing wanted to point out, CLEARLY indicate an improvement in the job rating of congress from the time the republic party controlled it to the time the dems have taken over, even in that relatively short time. That was your point.....wasn't it? Everybody, join me. Click on the link that "wordsmith" has provided. Go on. Now if you average out the numbers all the way on the right -- the difference between "approve" and "disapprove" -- going back to, say, the beginning of last August, you get 35.1. Now do the same thing for the results since January of this year. You get 19.8. See, that means the gap between approval and disapproval is NARROWING. And I'm giving the Republics the benefit of a larger sample size and everything! But one only has to glance at the rising number trend in the "approve" column to arrive at a similar conclusion. Now click on the link for Bush's approval rating. Hear that flushing sound?... Thanks again, brainsmith!
