On this New Year’s Eve, maybe we should take a look at the year that wasn’t which was based on the worst move of the year before and what may lie ahead in 2010..
The “lost” year of 2009 was precipitated by the worst move of 2008, which was the nomination of John McCain. The McCain nomination was the Republican answer to “playing for a tie”, “liberal lite” or “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em”.. McCain would have had to deal with the liberal House and Senate and as a “maverick”, he might have ended up bending where he shouldn’t have. There were enough liberals in both Houses for the liberals to continue with their “Target America First” and their “Contract ON America” programs virtually unimpeded..
Thus we were left with a 2009 that had a liberal House, Senate and President. This “perfect progressive storm” has directly led to double-digit unemployment, ridiculous “stimulus” packages, totalitarian takeovers of private enterprise and a wholesale attack upon capitalism that would have made Stalin proud.. Obama likes to childishly say that he has “inherited” all of his woes. He is correct. He has “inherited” them from himself and the other liberal members of Congress who have had control of both Houses since 2006.. The White House, once representative of an America that was tall and proud now has an “occupant” that embarrasses the nation on a daily basis..
This leads us into 2010. The haste with which the liberals have demanded that their pork filled panaceas be enacted tells us that they understand that their “window of opportunity” will close in November of 2010. Their systematic planning for the “payouts and payoffs” from their bogus “stimulus” is intentionally and sarcastically timed to coincide with the midterm election. So for nearly two years, the liberals will intentionally allow those that they claim they are trying to “rescue” to dangle in at best, economic uncertainty.. They have gone from “feeling your pain” to intentionally inflicting it.
That which has preceded 2010 should not be forgotten. The smoke and mirrors of the politics of persecution employed by the “we know what’s best for you” liberals could be brought under control by the taking of just one Senate seat, any additional victories would be the icing on the collectivist cake. Something has to “change”..
In order for the importance of what 2010 will mean to us, we have to understand thoroughly what it is that we have LOST in 2009. Needless to say, your first concrete reminder of what you have lost we come on April 15th of 2010.. This is just another example of the failures of Socialism as a political program. In the hands of the dexterous left, Socialism is nothing more than a political pogrom.. The Obama administration and their enablers in Congress are the only examples we need to show us that we shouldn’t suffer through them any longer than we have to. We know what the liberals did in 2009 and with the leftists, we know what “lies” ahead..
Welcome 2010. Never give in, never give up and never again..
