There is some speculation that if the Republican Party doesn’t get its act together and start listening to its voters, then they might very well lose in the November elections handing the reigns back over to the Democrats. Newt Gingrich make this point very well in an article you can find here
I hate to admit it, but I happen to agree. As a conservative, I vote Republican because it is the political party that comes the closest to representing my political beliefs. I, and I believe the rest of the voters in this country, (if they were paying attention), learned from the Ross Perot debacle that this country is not ready to be anything other than a two party system.
I have been frustrated with the Republican Party the last few years. They have been given the reigns and have just balked. They refuse to take the lead, and spend too much time pandering to the opposition from the Democrats instead of defeating it head on.
The first frustration for me was the infamous “Contract With America” that got the Republicans, led by Newt Gingrich, back into majority control of Congress. As it turned out their “contract” amounted to little more than some nice ideas and promises that just never materialized.
George W. Bush has been elected for two terms, and despite having a Republican majority in Congress has refused, or has been unable, to take advantage of his opportunity to steer this country back onto the right track, (pun intended), and away from the socialist, globalism influence that the left is trying to poison us with.
It was pointed out to me once by someone that both political parties are for bigger government and more government spending. They just focus on different areas of control for the government to seek and to spend the tax payer’s money on. I have found this to be basically true.
The problem for the Republican Party is that, while it does a good job of wooing the conservative vote, it hardly ever follows through with the conservative agenda that it promised to support. They worry more about polls than they do actually gaining the confidence and respect of their voting base.
I suspect I am not the only conservative out there who is becoming more and more disenfranchised with the Republican Party.
This growing disenchantment could spell an unfortunate victory for the Democrats and, therefore the liberal movement.
You see, unlike the Republican Party, the Democrat Party is dominated by liberal agenda. It doesn’t just woo liberals for their vote, it is, by and large liberal itself.
So what to do? I’m certainly not about to throw my vote towards the Democrats by voting for a third party. And there is no way I would ever vote the Democrat ticket, at least not as long as it continues down it's Marxist influenced, "legislate from the Supreme Court", "the Constitution is a living document" path.
If the unthinkable should occur, and the liberals win back control of the country here are some of the things you can expect to see happen, or perhaps be pursued by a government in the hands of liberal leadership, in no particular order.
First, our troops will be pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan post haste. The left have been screaming ad nauseum that we don’t belong over there and our troops are stuck in a quagmire, ineffectual and dying by the thousands for no good reason. They will act swiftly on this.
When they do force our fighting men and women back home, you can expect the following. Once again, the Iraqis will learn that you can’t count on the U.S. She will always leave you in a lurch. The country will either turn into a bloody civil war disaster, or the Islamo-Fascist hotheads will assume command. If you think Saddam Hussein was bad, try living under the control of bloodthirsty, hate-filled, demon possessed terrorists and their nightmarish vision.
The people of Afghanistan will learn the painful lesson about U.S. fidelity that their neighbors have had to endure, now twice with America’s second abandonment. You can expect the Taliban to regain power, and life for the women of Afghanistan, and every one else who doesn’t agree with their insanely restrictive “shove Islam down everyone’s throats” style of government to take a severe dive in terms of quality and promise.
Any hope of having two more Islamic democracies in the Middle East would be dashed.
Those fallen US soldiers who died liberating Afghanistan and Iran, like Casey Sheehan's son, would then have died in vain.
All of this thanks to the liberal agenda.
Second, you can expect that our military will be farmed out to support the UN in whatever meaningless endeavor the UN wishes to pursue, (talk about being in a quagmire and the senseless loss of American lives!).
Liberals love the ideals of globalism with its vision of “one world, one government”. They are ashamed of America’s superpower status, and wish to bring America down a notch or two.
Other things that could be on the liberal agenda could be granting other nations the ability to arrest and extradite American military personnel to be tried for “war crimes”, Supreme Court rulings being guided by other nations’ interpretations and philosophies, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they didn’t toy with the idea of opening up American elections to the voting populace of the nations of the world.
I’d like to think that that last item is highly unlikely, but it would be consistent with the liberal globalist’ agenda. They do crave the respect of Europe and the rest of the world and they are embarrassed and ashamed by the actions of America now, and in the past as a superpower. They especially don’t like the idea of America being a lone superpower. To appease and try and win the respect of the rest of the world they are willing to let the rest of the world determine who will lead the world's only superpower.
Third, you can expect to kiss the tax break you got from the Bush Administration goodbye, and face even more taxes than before.
Fourth, you can expect that with all of the money they can squeeze out the American worker they will squander it on more socialist programs that don’t actually solve any problems, but ensure the dependence of the free-loaders in this country on the government and secure their vote.
Fifth, illegal aliens, “undocumented workers” would be given automatic citizenship and voting rights. Social programs would be financed through heavy taxation of authentic American citizens and aimed at these "new citizens" to ensure the vote of the illegal aliens would always go toward keeping the liberals in power. And of course, it will send a message loud and clear to the rest of Latin America, "come on over and become an automatic American citizen, we will even give you free handouts!
Never mind the fact that countless immigrants from Europe, Mexico, Latin America, Asia have sacrificed to obtain citizenship into this country the right way. When it comes to Mexican aliens, they will get special, preferential treatment.
And of course, never mind the rise in drug trafficking into America, or the unhindered path into our cities afforded to al Qaeda and other terrorist groups who mean us harm. After all, there will be nothing in place to hinder "undocumented workers" from coming to the "land of plenty" and helping themselves to what is not rightly theirs, but granted to them by the kinder liberal government.
Sixth, since liberals tend to view the Constitution as a “living document” you can expect more and more of it be reinterpreted in a more modern, enlightened, progressive manner (read, converted slowly but surely into a Communist/Socialist Manifesto).
Seventh, if you think the public school system is a mess now, it hasn’t even begun to deteriorate. Schools will funnel the liberal world view into the heads of our children ensuring the indoctrination of future generations into the liberal secular, humanist, communist/socialist viewpoint. Given enough time, generations can be effectively brainwashed with a one-sided view, to believe the way it is, is the best of all possible ways.
Am I saying that the liberals would accomplish these and other items on their agenda once they regained control of the Congress and possibly the Presidency? No, of course not. But just look at what they were able to accomplish in the last half of the past century. We are already well on our way down the path they envision for us. The Republicans have been too busy watching their status in the polls to bother with overturning the damage that the decades of Democratic rule managed to inflict.
Public schools are failing to provide for a good education, but there is no shortage of liberal programs being aimed at students. Critical thinking skills aren’t taught in schools. And I maintain there is a motive behind its absence in the schools around this nation's cirriculum.
The liberal’s plan for the secularization of America has already created plenty of damaging erosion to the moral fabric of our society. Marriages and families fall apart on a regular basis. The poisonous philosophy of relativism has introduced a myriad of immorality and filth into our popular culture. Liberal successes via their misinterpretation of the First Amendment “Separation of Church and State” ploy is succeeding in de-Christianizing America, and denying citizens the freedom of expression of their religion in public.
Am I saying that they would automatically get away with their agenda? No. I would like to think that as they tried to slip their agenda in, bright Americans would rise to the occasion and vote them out of power. But, even so, just because there is not any guarantee they could remain in power long enough, to completley re-invent America according to their communist/socialist vision doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t try. Unlike the Republican party that tries to capitulate to angry Democrats, the Democrats would do with their power what the Republicans should have and that is ignore the temper tantrums coming from the Republican party and push ahead with their agenda.
A vote for the Democratic Part is a vote for the liberal agenda for America. It is a vote that will weaken our military defense, farm it out to the UN, and relegate our national defense and defense of our national interests to the UN. It is a vote to constantly increase the tax burden and severely decrease the quality of the American way of life as a plethora of many more useless socialist programs will be funded on the backs of the American worker. A vote for the Democratic Party is a vote for extremely diminished Homeland Defense, and wide open, unprotected borders. A vote for the Democratic Party would be a very bad choice indeed.
