You’re Ruined

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.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. Any public figure like Limbaugh is at fault because they publicly supported G W Bush, is that your position?

  2. TedWest says:

    Yes, anyone who stood sliently by while Bush and the Republicans worked their magic has blood on his hands, but Limbaugh stands alone because he was singularly able to move people. It was more important to him to preserve his relationship with Bush and his ilk. Even now he won't criticize Bush, and he only criticizes Republicans in the most general sense. He's a disgrace at best and a traitor at worst.

  3. I guess that rules you out as a subscriber to National Review. LOL
