"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~

Republican Folly

Republicans had endless opportunity to follow conservative values for the last six years. Now the mid-term elections are upon us and many Republican seats will be lost in the Senate and House and the possibility of losing both to Liberals the lessons to be learned will be tough.

Everyone is blaming President Bush and Iraq. However, if Republicans in Congress would have cut spending, worked toward more fiscal responsibility, secured our borders, and worked with the President on Social Security reform things could have been much different.

Positive accomplishments from the legislature will trump other issues. When Liberals complain about the war in Iraq most legislators run and hide without logically defending the bigger picture of fighting terrorism. With that said President Bush should be pressuring the Iraqi government to take control of their country and stop the clerics who support death squad and militias.

In the end Republicans set their own fate by abandoning a conservative reform agenda. Let's recap the Republican failures:
  • Greed and ensuing scandal.
  • Failure to ensure permanent tax cuts.
  • Failure to reform Social Security and establish private accounts.
  • Failure to establish legitimate immigration reform and border security.
  • Failure to demonstrate the economy is a success.
  • Failure to demonstrate the low unemployment rate and increased job creation.
  • Failure to stop earmarking, instead using them at a Liberal pace.
  • Failure to show fiscal responsibility.
  • Failure to show true leadership.
  • Failure to formally establish a reform policy and initiate it.

Republicans may and probably will lose the House of Representatives and will, at the very least, have little remaining control in the Senate. Liberals will take control, but will have little control with President Bush in position to veto any ludicrous bills sent to his desk.

However, with Liberals in control, we will witness hearing after hearing especially in an effort to completely discredit President Bush and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

The Democrats have a plan on the Liberal side, which is to embarrass the current administration and "get even" for what they see as impeachable offenses and payback for the 2000 election.

Liberals won't govern, they will start an ideological war, they will accomplish nothing of substances and will attempt to create bigger government, increase taxes (directly and indirectly) and create social programs to make independent Americans dependent on a fat socialist government.

If I were religous, I'd say, AMEN.
