Headin' Towards the Falls

By GotDesign
For just over 2 weeks, the Mainstream Media (MSM) has been harping over the Democratic Party's loss of the elections. We have heard the wild cries of "does 51% of the U.S. know how stupid it is," and the secession of the Blue States, and the many cries of "Oh, woe is me." Now, while I must claim some small degree of satisfaction in this pity party, the party is over. The Democratic Party needs to recognize what is truly wrong -- they've lost touch the people.

Many of today's Democratic Party candidates continue to claim ties to the respectable Democrats of old -- Roosevelt, Kennedy, etc. But this could not be farther from the truth. If you look at the values of these bulwarks of the Democratic Party, you'll find they have no resemblance to today's Democrats. Dennis Prager has on many occasions stated that, if you gave a copy of John F. Kennedy's innaugural address to a college student today, without identifying it, that student would 95% of the time identify the speech as being given by a Republican. And I have no doubt of this. The Democratic Party has come to represent the antithesis of traditional Democratic values. Regarding our national defense, JFK said "only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed." But the leaders of The Democratic Party have spent years campaigning against critical weapon systems. Sen. John Kerry voted both for and against supplemental funding for our troops in Iraq. JFK also said, regarding America's role in the world:
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
But today's Democrats side with Michael Moore and go to extremes to belittle the President's foreign policy, make public statements that both denigrate our troops and encourage our enemies, and call over half of Americans stupid because of moral and religious beliefs.

When I see the way Democrats are behaving these days, I think of the old serial movies -- some westerns, some horror, some sci-fi -- where the hero is in a boat without an engine that is drifting towards a waterfall. You can see the end coming. You want to shout at the screen, "do something!" The bulk of the Democratic Party needs to "do something!" The Democratic Party leadership has left its rank and file without an engine and headed for the falls.

Why do I say these things? Why should I care about the impending demise of a group of spoiled rotten whiners? Because I enjoy the dialect process. Political dialog is the ideal at the heart of our system of government. The Founding Fathers philosophically believed that the best course for any body politic is the dialectic process of opposing ideas -- thesis and antithesis -- brought together in debate and reasoned through into a synthesis. The clash of ideas always results in a greater variety of thought and ideas. Somewhere in this process, the people of this nation take hold of the ideas they feel will best guide the country and set them into motion. This is what makes America great.

Hear that roar? Do something!
