They've ruined your retirement fund
They've ruined your savings
They've ruined your property values
They're about to obliterate lower tax rates
They're about to ruin health care
And they'll ruin your life completely if any global warming initiatives pass
In my recent post about remembering when, I purposely left out what I said about health care five or six years ago – that if Republicans didn't take steps to lower costs and insure more people, we were going to get exactly what conservatives feared most.
At the time, conservatives had virtually no concern even though I'd been complaining for nearly a decade before that, and when I started speaking out more forcefully, I wasn't just dismissed, I was treated the way liberals are treating Lieberman today. One of my best online friends even turned on me and labeled me a "collectivist."
And that was the kindest name I was called. So one wonders what those people must be thinking and saying today, but I don't… I just hope they're all dead… or at least broke.
Because apologies are worth nothing now. The time to act was long ago, and they, like Republicans, did nothing.
That's why whenever I start to trace back to where the fault lies for all this, it ends with conservatives. Anyone can see the opportunity that was squandered when Republicans were in the same position that Dems are now, and instead of implementing conservative programs that would validate conservative principles, they became Democrats. And that allowed Democrats to become full-fledged communists.
And the worst part is that even if Republicans regain some control, at best, all we have to look forward to is a return to the Bush era. Because Rush Limbaugh is leading the charge against a 'third party." And let me remind you that if there is one person who is more to blame than any other for where we are now – it's Limbaugh.
Hey Rush, How about making Republicans the third party? It's the least you can do to try to make up for the damage you've caused. Tell current Republicans what your pal GW said long ago when it meant something but he didn't mean it: "You're either with us or against us." Your listeners would follow your lead en masse.
Beck, Hannity, Savage, Coulter, Malkin, Ingraham… all of them together don't have the ability to do what you can do. Oh, and O'Reilly should just be beheaded.
