THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY – IT AIN’T THE PARTY OF MY MOTHER!
This writer was raised in a home where Mom and Dad were stalwart Democrats. They’d vote for a jackass if democrats ran one for President—and I think that may have happened! I remember when Mom came home from Almond Growers here in Sacramento and told me she was fired for trying to help organize a union—which to this day does not exist at Almond Growers/Blue Diamond operations!
Union—that’s right—Teamsters Union and proud of it. But deeply religious and steeped in social values that mirror those of conservative right today! But dems “went out there” and embraced a “social agenda” that got real “peculiar” as far as Mom and scores of other dems like her and dad. So what happened—go to Wichita, Kansas and find out for yourself. What’s happening in Wichita for blue collar workers is happening all over nation and only ones that can’t figure it out are dems who control that party.
But that doesn’t make much difference. Why? Clinton and his NAFTA/DLC elites are nothing more than “Republican economic light”—for “big picture” of global economic dominance is so steeped, so engrained in psyche of both parties, that only battle of differences are social in nature, with some civil rights bearing limited attraction (i.e., Democrats mouth support for civil rights of minorities, gays, etc.). So why on earth would a socially conservative democrat vote for Kerry/Edwards when their economic policies virtually mirror those of Republican Bush/Cheney regime? And, talk is cheap! So, “anti-war” crowd are really, in so far as “movers and shakers” at top of Democratic Party are concerned, nothing more than “talk” – they too must protect Mrs. Kerry’s millions somehow—and it ain’t going to be through economic isolationism and Libertarian policies of Pat Buchanan.
So—what you’ve got here are little meaningless nuances on how to fight global war on terrorism and still maintain economic hegemony over world’s economies!
THE COUNTRY CLUB REPUBLICANS—OUT OF MIND, BUT NOT OUT OF SIGHT!
Compounding their ostentatious take over of leadership of Republican Party from its country club headship and wishy-washy moderate Republican elites (a.k.a., “mainstream Republicans”), have been socio-religious conservatives—many of whom are white refugees from disenfranchised Solid South and union (as in “labor union”) North. Their leadership, however, has promoted an aggressive commercial promulgation of Gospel of Prosperity and, ipso facto, their marriage to corporate America—who has found in them moral covering to subjugate world’s economy under one umbrella, their own.
Think about it—not only have social conservatives of Democratic Party been disenfranchised (as a result of shift in emphasis within Democratic Party in early 1980s from plain and simple economic issues to embrace of radical social agendas of various splinter groups and “party greens”)—but social conservatives of Republican Party, and their newly-arrived democratic counterparts, now get to sit down and shut up and listen to likes of McCain, Guliani, and Schwarzenegger at Convention!
Yes, it must be “luv” - Corporate America’s embrace of “Theocratic Right’s” commercialism was witnessed at NASCAR’s biggest event (February 15, 2004) in Daytona Beach, FL. Mel Gibson’s “The Passion” was seen atop hood of a participant. AOL (America On-line) asked its audience if Christianity should participate in such blatant commercial advertising—in response, 85% saw nothing amiss with such merchandising (and AOL termed it “merchandising”)—thus, was birthed another benign “hybrid from hell” as Country Clubber and Prosperity Gospel-lite continue their turbulent romance of convenience and connivance.
SO—PEACE, PEACE AND MORE PEACE UNTIL WE HAVE A PIECE OF EVERYTHING!
The “man on white horse” who promised “compassionate conservatism” at its inception—has changed horses from white to apocalyptic red, whereon “man of peace” has become “man of war.” And, not just pure war—but “wars of liberation” -- wars that will democratize planet, making it safe and free!
For those of us who cherish liberties we hold as unalienable and given by our Creator and resist religious tyranny, “wars without,” and unbridled greed—we now behold resemblance of a prophetical eruption of an Image whose imperial might and colonial/commercial expansionism bears little or no recognition to America we once knew—and NEITHER political party wants to stop it! In name of freedom and liberty, of democracy and banishment of terrorism and tyranny, we march on and on. Where have we heard and witnessed such affirmations once promised, but whose commercial and missionizing intentions were abysmal failures?
Dear friend, Christianity cannot be propagated by sword nor by “shock and awe”—the promise of infidels and savages coming under light and blessings of gospel, while simultaneously reaping huge economic profits, only exposes rotten underbelly of rank colonialism—a recurring pathology whose flesh-eating diseased symptoms are altogether recognized throughout world.
A “crusade against evil” in mind of inner cabinet of this administration—ubiquitously launched against mysterious forces of global terrorism and their serpentine networks and operatives—bespeaks of communism’s stupidity, when Brezhnev proclaimed that USSR’s “sacred internationalist duty” to thwart, through overt military acts, all attempts to subvert socialism’s experiment throughout globe were wholly justified. The “city set on a hill” -- that beacon of light to shine into darkness—has now become an intrusive flashlight, probing and inspecting. Once her hands reached out to poor and tormented of earth—now she grabs their hands and fingerprints them upon entry at customs.
Joseph Goebbels’ famous dictum that to tell a believable lie one must tell a whopper or a cacophony of them continues to hold true today. Let me humbly state: The more we hear of why we entertained this “War of Liberation” commenced upon Mesopotamian Plain, more nonsensical and blatantly false were its assumptions. In Twentieth Century Nazis may have developed “the lie,” and Soviets may have refined “the lie,” but total believability of “the lie” has reached unsurpassed ignobility by a Twenty-First Century public so gullible, and under ether of a press so compliant, that masses who have succumbed to this absurd barrage of disinformation are perhaps most ill-informed generation ever to countenance America’s landscape.
