We can’t give up!
Posted by Liberty on February 14, 2009
My apologies for the lack of posting this week. Sometimes life intervenes. In my case, this intervention has come in the form of a chocolate lab puppy that we’re watching for a couple of weeks. And, while I’ve been spending a lot of time outside encouraging this dog to hurry up and drop another land-mine in my backyard, the bad news has just kept on coming.
The stimulus plan has passed. No House Republicans crossed over to vote for it. In the Senate, only three Republicans [Snowe, Collins & Specter] broke ranks and their betrayal was much expected. In a MSM news-bite I heard yesterday, some Democrat Senator [I think it was Charles Schumer] was blathering on and on about how Republicans didn’t offer a constructive solution, didn’t participate, only said, “no,” blah, blah, blah… Well, when you’re frozen out of the process and not allowed to introduce alternative solutions–what do those damned Democrats expect?
Think about the dishonesty that has so far been the hallmark of the Obama administration and this new era of Democrat domination. No lobbyists…and then Obama employs lobbyists. A more ethical administration…and the Obama appoints tax cheats. Open and transparent government…but there’s no time for the public to find out what’s in the stimulus bill. No time for even the Congressmen and Senators to read it before voting on it.
I know it seems pretty dark right now. Even more so here in Washington State, where our own little crowd of Democrat dictators are busy in Olympia. But Conservatives can’t give up. We need to continue to stand on principle. We need to continue to clearly define the difference between Republicans and Democrats. We need to be the loud, active voice of opposition to the Democrats’ plans to remake America in the style of European socialism. Every advance of liberalism needs to be met with a fight. Are you ready?
