The Left and Right Agree

noleftIt seems that all the fussing done by those opposed to the massive government debt has drawn little attempt at rebuttal from those who believe they have better use for our money, and Chinese money, than those of us who are paying the bills do. They talk of creating jobs by the thousands, while jobs are lost by the millions, but to the progressive elites, it’s only a matter of degree… mere details. And they don’t see the proportional differences as being catastrophic, after all, it is not they who are out of work and losing their homes.

Those who value traditional America, the right, for want of a better term, see the debt as destroying jobs and with them, the American middle class. Making this argument with the progressives on the left yields little more than a yawn – just like complaining to an enviro about higher fuel prices. Of course they know their nefarious schemes will destroy the middle class. Why do we think they are pursuing the course of fiscal terrorism in the first place?

Since we all seem to be in agreement, why the acrimony? Why the hostility? I guess it comes down to whether or not this destruction of individual prosperity and independence is a good thing. Patrick Henry, known for his “give me liberty or give me death” approach to life would say it is a bad thing – a very bad thing. Many of us would agree. Our President and his henchmen would not!

Henry helped raise an army. Many of us only complain. It’s as if Thelma, instead of going along with the plan, were yelling “you’re driving off the cliff”, and Louise saying, “Yes I know.” We are complaining to people who know what they are doing and are happy about it. Instead of slamming on the brakes, they are hitting the gas harder for an even bigger crash.

When we complain at the progressives who have seized control of our country, we are just telling them what they already know. They know their plans destroy wealth and create dependence. That is precisely the plan. So those of us with common sense, instead of telling the left they are wrong, should just recognize them for the enemies of freedom that they are. We would then be able to work with the rest of the country, showing them why these schemes will be bad for everyone, particularly offspring.

As elites running the system, they see themselves above the tragedies that are befalling our nation. They are unimpressed by the stories of hard times many people are experiencing as they believe whatever was lost was undeserved in the first place, taken from someone who could have been prosperous, if only someone’s greed had not snatched it from their grasp. This is perhaps best exemplified by the President mocking a man who could not afford gas for his vehicle by telling him he should go out and buy a $40,000 replacement that would not meet his needs.

Fundamentally changing our country means fundamentally changing our country. We have an alien administration intent on obliterating the industrious, hard working, individual centric society with a group oriented submersion of the citizen into their gray society with no peaks and all valleys.

We need to understand that those in leadership positions do not think like we do. They do not have the same goals. There is hardly enough common ground to even set one foot down, let alone travel down the road to to a common future. One side or the other must emerge victorious. With this in mind, it would be good to remember the words of Samuel Adams, “It does not take a majority to prevail … but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men.”

Adams was speaking of the human side of the equation. Those of us who know the Creator have something even more powerful than anger… which is justified in so many cases. Philippians 4:13 tells us “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” (NIV) As long as we stay on the side of His truth and don’t blindly expect divine protection and blessing for our plans, we have unstoppable power. If we reject the liberal lies and cling to the truth… the truth shall set us free.
