Liberal Might versus Christian Right
Liberal Might versus Christian Right
What would Paul Revere have shouted had he been around to witness the increasingly intrusive installation of photo enforcement cameras? Would he have raced to his Apple computer and blogged “the nanny state is coming, the nanny state is coming?” One can only theorize. What is easily discernable are those folks who welcome more “civilian oversight,” they are indeed cut from the same cloth as Tories who called our founding fathers insurrectionists. In light of historically repetitive meandering, we are in the midst of a serious battle over what freedom means. In our classic American arch rival example; we have on our left, the liberal defenders of all which feels good, needs defending or legislating and regulating for forced equality. On our right, we have the defenders of a God given right to practice restraint, self imposed responsibility and family first attitude. Nether side is willing to give up ground, yet one side is gaining the upper hand via clever maneuvering and aggressive marketing.
The far left is playing a dangerous game with the religious right in our modern time. Either the far left is too absorbed in its crusade to defeat its proclaimed enemy or they are too obnoxious to identify how they have turned into what they hate = “control mongers.” When did using the legislative bench become the only way to force action? What happened to power being placed in the hands of the people? Why is suing the first knee jerk reaction?
From my perspective as a disillusioned Christian, I believe the left doesn’t understand what it means to attack the very way religious peoples wish to live. Much has been said of our abusive history in America; how the Christians of old have stifled and oppressed all who were not of WASP progeny. Christians are murderers, adulterers, charlatans, war mongers and medieval throwbacks. On the other hand, secular atheists are as pure as the driven snow. Without defending the indefensible, how is it that progressively enforcing your political ideology through legislating and judicial obstruction is not a different form of oppression? Can someone from the Left honestly answer that without politically posturing?
I am using public photo enforcement photo cameras a metaphor for the silent war we are losing. Orwellian dogma is enveloping us at every turn and the moderates think this is a joke. Like it or not there still exist a shrinking majority which prefers smaller government power over totalitarian suffocation. Right, wrong or indifferent, there are more reasons to distrust an all powerful government then there are grains of sand in the Pacific Ocean. With every new camera installation, a weed sprouts up in reminder that we the people are incapable of doing anything right by our own volition. It takes a mature adult to admit that the supporters of little government are a passive aggressive bunch. Be it taxation without representation on the backs of our founders, to the ballooning healthcare bomb; the far left pokes their finger into our chest, slightly nudging us back with each jab. It is a blatant “I dare you” antagonizing of our values. It is also a valuable lesson America as a whole learned when it lost two very prominent towers over ideology.
Just who is it that says we have to have health insurance, we cannot smoke in our own home, car, or business that we own? Who dares to say that we cannot eat fatty foods, or buy cars too big to fit in the garage? Who is it telling the religious they cannot pray in school but we better except Darwin as the father of evolution and the only way to enlightenment? It is intriguing that the Liberal Party is so concerned for us that they believe stripping the citizens of the world from their right to choose their own path is tantamount to survival. Here is what www.dictionary.reference.com/browse/liberal says about liberals;
“favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, esp. as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.”
I believe they left something crucial out; it didn’t say accept for cases when liberals think you shouldn’t have the right buy the biggest SUV, hamburgers with the highest calories, most repugnant cigarettes, carry no health insurance, observe God anywhere outside of Church, the right to self defense, the right to keep most of your paycheck, the right to bear arms, the right to chose how and when your child will learn about sex and the right to proclaim two penises do not make a marriage. Who exactly is it that’s defending the freedom of the people?
No matter how you look at it, both sides are at war over words, beliefs, ideas and standards for living. Both sides are trying to recruit, but I give my hats off to the left, they are more efficient, better equipped, have the prettiest Hollywood faces ready indoctrinate, own the Universities and welcome our children from day one in kindergarten. Be that as it may, the far left is taking too many chances poking the religious right with a stick. The far left is always claiming the religious as the violent types. I guess all those Austerity riots are being demonstrated by the pious. I suppose those violent G8 rallies were held by nuns. Equally disturbing is how the Harry Krishna’s managed to stage all those student attacks in the 60’s. Sooner rather than later, that passive sensibility they love to exploit is going to come off like a glove and it will be the moderates whom are going to wish they took intervention more seriously. The far left may learn a lesson King George understood, only via the hard way.
