The Extremists Within...
Beware The Extremists Within
The past election was a critical and defining moment in the history of the United States of America, and I'mKar'n felt that she needed to be a part of it!
However many Americans disagreed with her and told her to mind her own business - to go back to her own country - and that she knew nothing of which she spoke!
However many times she was sworn at, insulted, belittled, and called nasty(and silly) names!
However many 'followers' she may have lost!
No matter WHAT - she felt deeply the need to speak of what she saw when she peeked over the proverbial fence - into the country that she feels a deep connection with - and an abiding love for!
And here's what she saw:
Back in 2008, I'mKar'n was firmly behind John McCain. When he made what was, in her opinion - a crucial and telling mistake in choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate - she simply backed neither.
It didn't seem that Obama and McCain were all that terribly different from each other - they both seemed to have the good of the people at heart - even if they differed in methodology!
Not so four years later in 2012!
Suddenly, we were confronted by a GOP party that had swung SO far to the right - as to be nudging not only the 1940's - but fascism as well!
From their own lips, and spoken with smarmy smiles firmly affixed - we were inundated with ugly, exclusionary, intolerant, backwards - and shockingly ignorant remarks and statements!
Who did they attack? Well, let's just say that the list of who they DIDN'T attack is much shorter!
After what had to be the strongest, most organized - and most expensive - GOP push for the Oval Office in the history of all pushes- they STILL lost - BOTH the electoral AND the popular votes!
After secret, agendaed, and corrupt Superpacs blew their wads on Romney- they STILL lost!
After 'skewing' with the polls - predicting a landslide victory to attract the 'sheeple' that would believe anything - they STILL lost!
After attempting every method of voter repression - they STILL lost!
After offering the military MORE money than they ask for - they STILL lost!
After standing on the Constitution, the Bible - and the backs of the Forefathers - they STILL lost!
With an unemployment rate over 9% - they STILL lost!
Now - while pundits say they are 'SHOCKED' at the outcome - this author - who is an under-educated, middle class, middle aged, menopausal, female CANADIAN - is SHOCKED at the pundits shock!
As a matter of fact - she wrote about it WAAY back on February 8th, 2012 at the end of the GOP primaries - in a post that was titled:President Obama: May I Be the First to Congratulate You on Your Second Term in Office.
Feb. 8th - NINE months ago, and yet - it says exactly what those 'shocked pundits' are now espousing:
Obama didn't win the election because of his economic policies - Romney LOST the election because of his social policies!
Now, you may think that I'mKarn is just tootin' her own horn here - but, I can assure you - she is not!
She has a DEEP concern withthe reaction of the hard right over the results of this election - reading far too many articles calling for an even STRONGER resistance against Obama in his second term.
Calling for gridlock in the House - period! Not caring what's best for the people - AGAIN - but only obsessed with the fact that Obama is President!
She once asked a rabid republican this question: "If the Devil were running against Obama" - who would you vote for?
His response: "Anyone but Obama"
Extremists within are willing to watch the country go down - OUT OF SPITE AND HATRED FOR ONE MAN!
Please remember that rats multiply in the dark - and while it's not always easy to stand up and speak the truth - it's OUR responsibility to continue shining the light!
