The Declaration of Independence, one of the most beautifully worded documents ever written begins thusly:
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Now, for those of you who are not familiar with certain political theories, this is a declaration that Natural Law trumps Political Law. Natural Law is the equal, most free law out there because it is respective of the individual and does not play into liberal ideas like "leveling the playing field". Try to hold discourse with a Lion on leveling the playing field for the Wildebeest and you will suddenly discover that all things being equal, the lion doesn't give a flying you know what on a rolling donut about the supposed rights of the wildebeest, or yours for that matter.
Natural Law and it's definition became the Rule of Law upon which this country is founded. I think Bill Whittle said it best in his video guide on What We Believe. I recommend the entire series.
So what am I babbling about? Not only do we need to reject the Progressive Liberal Agenda that's been shoved down our throats for the past 50 years, we need to defeat it so decisively that it never, ever rears its ugly head again. We need to make that agenda as taboo and unholy as incest or child molestation, so fundamentally evil that no one will stand up to defend it or progress the idea that taking from one person and giving to another constitutes a good or moral idea. So, no, last Tuesday was not a decisive victory for us, it was a beginning. I admire the Tea Party, but my main worry, and why I still have my doubts about the grassroots movement is that they will become complacent. Complacency is dangerous for any political movement. Yeah, I'm looking at you, Republicans.
My high school civics teacher was a man named James Ellis. He was my favorite teacher. Not just because I've always been a political junkie, but because he said two things which still ring true about politics. Number one was that any election was about choosing the lesser of two evils. The second one was the most important, YOU CANNOT LEGISLATE MORALITY. In ever instance, EVERY INSTANCE, it's been attempted it has failed utterly and miserably. I only bring up Prohibition and our 30 year War on Drugs as prime examples. I still correspond with Mr. Ellis sporadically, and he's still teaching at a community college near his home and enjoying his life. Of all of my teachers he is the one I respect the most. He never tried to tell us something couldn't be done. He would show the steps one had to go through to say... repeal the Obamination that is Obamacare, and how hard it would be to get it through. It's tough, and it will be an uphill battle with the Senate still controlled by the likes of Harry Reid and Obama still in office. Not impossible, but tough. Politicians don't like tough. Politicians like easy stuff that will get them re-elected.
Repeal can be done, and must be done, and I will push mightily to see that it IS done. Just so Progressive Libs know, I intend to make this my mission in life and my confirmation name is not Joan because I was feeling clever at age 15. I recognize my Paladin Complex and happily embrace it. Just because something is unpopular doesn't make it wrong. Which is where you hippies got it all wrong in the 60s. You think this past election made your butt all sore? Wait'll you get a load of me. I'm a happy, secure capitalist who is well versed in the philosophical tenets of my politics. I'm a prettier version of Milton Friedman.
I can and will show you how health care is not only NOT a right given us by Natural Law, I will shove your illogical, irresponsible leadership up your wazoo until you give up. Period. No quarter asked or given. And trust me, you may try your Alinsky tactics on me, but you should know this ahead of time, I was a terror on the playground and I've gotten more efficient and effective in the past two years of your inglorious rule. Consider this my manifesto you wrongheaded freaks.
