I was screaming, "Yes! Yes! Yes! You tell 'em Rick!!!!!" And now of course White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and His Majesty's other henchmen have been dispersed to not only rebut Rick's sentiments (which are based in fact, but who cares about that) but to also smear the man himself. As we all remember with poor Joe the Plumber, the American citizen who unfortunately asked the Obamessiah a question that The One could not answer without belying his true, socialistic, redistributionist plans: those that dare to disagree with, or cast doubt upon His Royal Highness, must face the wrath of many super angry, but "tolerant" and bedazzled aging hippies, college students, and media dinasaurs.
A commenter here made the astute observation that we need to be on our phones and laptops not only congratulating this man for passionately pleading our case, but also to all of the media outlets and politicians that will try to ruin this man for speaking actual truth to power. (Yet another annoying lefty term: speaking truth to power, but hey, I have no problem speaking their language as it seems they do not understand non-annoying, BS, made-up terminologies...)
SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE REMEDIED, RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW:
Conservatives, Republicans, and Libertarians all care a GREAT DEAL for their neighbors, their fellow countrymen, and humanity in general. To assert otherwise is to squeeze oneself into a dirty, rotten hole in the ground from which one cannot possibly carry out a dialogue or debate, or move the country forward. I s-p-i-t upon the notion (and those that adhere to this idea? Don't tempt me...) that just because we hold a different philosophy about which path leads to more prosperity for more people does NOT mean we do not care.
This makes me so angry. I do not accuse lefties of not caring. Do I believe they are misguided? Yes, absolutely, but as far as your average left leaning citizen goes, I believe they really think that socialistic policies will cure all of humanity's ills. Is this naive and infinitely impossible? Yes. Are they uncaring trolls? No. And wouldn't it be sooooo nice to receive that same dispensation from their side? I'm not holding my breath. When the lefty leadership decides to grow up, give up their blood lust for power, believe in the power that is bubbling over within each human being, and trusts each of us to make our own decisions, then maybe their devoted followers will be able to recognize our spirit as well.
Tomorrow I hope to blog about some bills that are currently in committee, in Washington State as well as at the federal level. Like I said, this is action central my friends. Be always vigilant and we might be able to keep the lion at bay.
Oh, and by the end of this weekend I will have finished my special project. It is a song... it is almost done... and it is fabulous... I'm jus' sayin'...
