Talking ourselves over the ledge

The Democrats only goal is to get in office and to get rid of Bush.

Because that's their only goal they are not concerned about what is good for the country. Certainly they are concerned about what is good for the country, but ONLY after THEY are elected and THEY are in P-O-W-E-R.

So, where does that leave us today and in the past few years?

Well, they talk about a bad economy and they talk about anything bad they can find in Iraq. They root for failure of the U.S. as a method of getting them in power.

If they can just get this economy to really cave in, they believe that's good for them to get back in power. And if they can just get some blood and turmoil in Iraq, well the more the merrier, because they think that means a return to power for them.

I voted for Clinton and Democrats in the past. I even campaigned for Dems in the 1990's.

How times have changed. Sometimes I feel alone, but I unequivocally cannot vote for any Democrat anymore. My underlying views may still be all over the map. But one thing is certain. I am PRO-America. I believe this country is, has been, and can continue to be a force for good in the world. I am optimistic that humanity is on a positive track-- with new discoveries and technologies being developed as we speak by hard working scientists, while protestors picket and merely complain the days away. I am PRO-business and entreprenuership. I have never rooted for anyone's failure for my own personal gain. And I hope to always retain values like this.

Elections

I'm doing my best to come to grip with the fact that elections are way too important to liberals, educators, and the media establishment. The Washington Post will stop at no length over the next few months to win an election for one political party-- the Democrats. And same with the New York Times, Katie Couric, Brian Williams, CNN, Time, Newsweek, and on.

Maybe somehow, miracle-of-miracles, the Republicans will once again win a major election this November. I certainly am cheering for it, hoping for it, for the good of this country to have a new party push through the fears of the entrenched establishment (60 years of iron grip on the House in Washington D.C-- 50 to 180 vote advantages-- prior to the Republicans sticking their head up with a 10-20 vote advantage for a few years here).

But readers of these papers will be left wondering what happended. Once again, liberals and the establishment Democratic readership will be wondering, how could this happen? The Post, Times, and all our nightly news outlets have told us for months that Republicans were on the way down, that all Republicans are evil.

Because they want to paint a story before its written. Would they spend even a small, small, small, small, small fraction of the time covering the hatred toward Michael Steele, Rick Santorum, and others. Rather, they play the same old tired story to your readers. Republicans are evil.

I need to stop thinking they will ever change. Sometimes the establishment (both Party and media) needs to change.
