Could not have said it better myself

Filed under: Uncategorized — conservativelawstudent @ 1:35 am

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about politics, mainly because after a two-year campaign season, if you can call it that, I am wiped. I have blogged about sports enough over at my blogspot home to keep me busy.

But, finals are over, another term has fired up, and I find myself getting back into the blogging spirit. The first blog back will not be an original, but taken from Big Hollywood. Andy Levy gives us conservatives a nice rundown of how not to be exactly like the people we have been chastising for the last eight years, and how we can be a better minority.

I do want to add one personal note. While I think the things President Obama will do will ultimately fail, I sincerely hope we are better off in four years. I will be praying for him, as well as for his family, and wish him the best of luck, and Godspeed.

I’ll be back a little more often from here on out.

  1. Wrong. Dead wrong.
    If you do not fight Obama and Dems with everything you’ve got, you’re not a true conservative. You’re a false Christian if you stand idly by and allow injustice and injury to your fellow Americans. The Dems are not just wrong-headed, they are evil, and they wish to destroy our country. We truly believe that if they are allowed to govern unfettered, they will split or splinter the country. It may ultimately fail completely. We need to fight their policies, destroy their power, their reputation, damage their brand, attack their motives, decry their excesses, stop their programs, fight them on every issue, call them on every crime. The ascension of Obama was NOT a good thing for this country. The man is a stone racist. He despises white people. He indoctrinated his children from birth with a preacher who taught that all whites are evil, greedy, racist, murderous and dishonest. He taught them never to trust a white face, that whites invented AIDs and crack among other thing to keep blacks down and murder them. He taught them that whites have only their own interests at heart, so blacks should do so as well. He is the epitome of what is wrong with black America today, their focus on the “evil” of the white man for all their own problems.

    Fight him. Attack him. Smear him. Undermine him. Propagandize against hm and his ilk. We have to start NOW. NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW. To stand by idly or fight in a “gentlemenly” fashion is not just cowardly, ignorant and foolish, it’s traitorous. Damn those who won’t fight Obama and the Dems with EVERY legal means, and most especially our freedom of speech. Let’s give as good as we got over the last 8 years. Do you really contend that if we behave like little nancyboys for the next 8 years, that if a Republican does get in, the Dems won’t again demonize him and drive his ratings to the low 20s?

    If you do, you are more than a fool than you look.

  2. I will agree that we need to not be nancyboys. But there is a difference between being a nancyboy, which is what the Republican party has been slipping into since the Contract with America, and being a wingnut. You can believe what you will about his intent, but without actual facts to back it up, it will fall on deaf ears and only serve to harden the left into their position. What the right in Congress needs to do is stake out their positions and not fall back from them. They have been giving in to the left for so long now in the interest of “bi-partisanship,” that they are indistinguishable from the democrats of the 80s and 90s.

    I base my opinions on verifiable facts and history. And while I would be hard-pressed to lower my opinion of the current president, without verified facts to show the things you espouse, I cannot speak to them. I do know that his ideas that are supposed to, at least ostensibly, revive the economy, they are based on bad theory and can easily be debunked with facts and history. The reason that the left is in control right now is ignorance. We need to fight that ignorance, because we will never, ever, win a popularity contest against the media, who are so far entrenched on the left.

    You are right that we need to fight, and fight hard, through every legal means, and it starts in hometowns across the nation in local school systems. We need to fight the lies that are spread in public systems from K through 12, and into the universities. Never will I say we stand idly by, and I’m not sure what you mean by “gentlmenly,” but shouting louder than your opponent is not a way to win an argument and pull from the ranks of the opposition. Remember- elections are not won by changing the minds of the 45% who are who they are and will not even listen to reason. Elections are won by winning the 10% in the middle. To get them, we must use logic and reason and information.

    I appreciate the comment. Come back any time!

  3. “shouting louder than your opponent is not a way to win an argument”

    You’re wrong, and the fact that the Dems did just that, and demonized and ruined Bush’s reputation and destroyed the GOP brand, in cahoots with the MSM, proves you are wrong. Rabid attacks DID work. In fact, they worked for us on Clinton as well (witness the defeat of both Gore and Hillary).

    The only way to win is to destroy the other side. Politics have changed, or reverted to how they were in the 19th century, perhaps. We plan to be loud and obnoxious, unfair and uncivil, mean-spirited and destructive. Either that, or get used to being the permanent minority.

  4. Your county is so polarized.

    Problem is, both sides have an opinion on every issue. So when you make the absolute declaration that the other side is always wrong, you are also making the claim that your side is always right. Which is simply impossible.

    Personally, I’d hate having to choose along party lines in America. The wackjobs on the extreme left or right of both parties are not the type of people i’d like to align myself with.

  5. wrong “remi”- it’s perfectly possible for BOTH sides to be wrong, and they often are. It’s just that the GOP’s core philosophy is right, and the Dems is wrong, dead-wrong, as history has proven. Obama could go down in history as the president who destroyed the country if he doesn’t quick sucking the far left’s ass.

  6. Missing my point doc. We could argue for a lifetime over who’s “core” philosophy is correct, there are many intelligent arguments and historical facts supporting either position- i don’t have the time for that debate now.

    My point is that in the USA the individual’s own philosophy must always be compromised- no person is going to unequivocally support either party. If they claim that they do, they are making compromises to make their own philosophy fit the party- which is extremely dangerous when there are only 2 parties. Many people are forced to make some pretty big compromises and many powerful party insiders are allowed to assert their beliefs onto these somewhat dissenting supporters.

    Both parties have positions on thousands of issues, an absolute “core” philosophy is impossible to discern from such a melange of positions. Sure Sure Republicans cut tax and dereg, Dems do the opposite. Again i don’t want to debate the merits of either here, but the best position lies somewhere between the two. A US with no taxes or regulation would be terrible, a completely socialized USA would also be terrible. Take either core to the extreme and its obviously not a good system of government.

    To label either party as having a “dead-wrong” core philosophy is exactly the dangerously polarized type of comment I’m talking about. Sometimes they’re both wrong, sometimes either or is right. To vote along party lines every election because of a belief in some abstract “core” concept is just an easy way to avoid issues and intelligent debate.
