"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

"Ideas" from the Left by Ned Lamont

Today is "D"-Day in Connecticut and Joe Lieberman may lose his bid to return as Democratic Senator because he is a hawk supporting the war in Iraq and the war against terrorism. Lieberman votes 90% with Democrats but he has lost support from the Democrats base, the left-wing-nut caucus.
I personally would like to see Mr. Lieberman lose his primary today and go on to win his seat back as an Independent. This would allow everyone to see the soft underbelly of the real Democratic Party. The party of Boxer, Pelozi, Reid, Durbin, Kennedy, Schumer and Cindy Sheehan.
Ned Lamont is a newcomer to politics with rich stock from the "upper crust" of the social realms. Lamont has used upwards of $3 million to fund his campaign, which tells us of his amateur political status and left-wing ideals.
Lamont is running from the left with sound bites condemning the war in Iraq, calling for immediate troop withdrawal. Lamont proclaims, "Stand Up for Connecticut, Stand Up for Progressive Democratic Values." Imagine that, "progressive" and "values" in one sentence describing a Liberal candidate for public office. Here are some more themes from Mr. Lamont:
  • We need to provide parents and communities the support they need to assure that children start their school day ready to learn.
  • That the war in Iraq has diverted far too many of our dollars, and too much of our attention, from our needs back home.
  • Washington needs creative solutions to old problems.
  • Government has a role in ensuring fundamental rights and equal opportunity for all Americans.
  • Support the nomination and appointment of pro-choice judges.

This is a platform? A Lamont victory will provide a look at the whole of the left-wing base of the democratic Party. Anti-war, anti-security, isolationist. On the pro-choice issue Lamont believes even minors should have access to the morning after pill over the counter. Lamont is against teacher accountability and testing.

Studying Lamont's web site provides a good indication he is the standard bearer of liberal mantra and left-wing beliefs. This is what Lamont feels is necessary in dealing with Iran. "We should work diplomatically and aggressively to give them reasons why they don't need to build a bomb, to give them incentives. We have to engage in very aggressive diplomacy. I'd like to bring in allies when we can. I'd like to use carrots as well as sticks to see if we can change the nature of the debate."

Lamont is so out of touch he doesn't realize our "allies" have been negotiating with Iran to no avail and the war with Hezbollah is financed by Iran.

Martin Peretz, editor in chief of The New Republic, has this to say about Ned Lamont:

The Lamont ascendancy, if that is what it is, means nothing other than that the left is trying, and in places succeeding, to take back the Democratic Party. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Maxine Waters have stumped for Mr. Lamont. As I say, we have been here before. Ned Lamont is Karl Rove's dream come true. If he, and others of his stripe, carry the day, the Democratic party will lose the future, and deservedly.

So here is to a Lamont victory today so we may have a Lieberman victory in the fall election. This will effectively highlight the Democrats for what they are, Left-Wing Nuts!
