Uncommon Sense

politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

Pick your flavor: Democrat or Democrat lite

The Conservative Intelligence Briefing has mentioned something in Issue XXV about the establishment GOP going to war with the Tea Party. Every day I see establishment GOP looking increasingly like progressive Democrats. They often take the same big-government approach on any number of issues, support the same “solutions” to problems, and hold the same derision for conservative America. The so-called “moderate” GOP are really progressives, supporting the belief that only government can solve problems, that society is perfectible and life can be made fair if only there were enough laws. Moderate GOPers are often the lite version of the socialist/progressive left, supporting the abuse of power.

So it looks like the GOP has become just the lower calorie version of Democrats. Hmm, given the choice between the original version or the lite version, which do you think government-minded, centralized power “centrists” are going to vote for during elections? Why would supporters of concentrated power vote for the lite version when they can have the genuine article? Progressive is actually regressive, which means the notion of progressive Republican (masquerading as “moderate” or “centrist” Republicans) is a self contradiction. You can’t be for freedom while constantly supporting greater concentration of power in the hands of the federal government.

These “moderate” Republicans think they have a winning strategy mainly because Americans largely like oppression. But appealing to concentrated power while pretending to oppose concentrated power is ridiculous, and a guaranteed formula for failure. We haven’t seen what real conservative policy is like in decades (such as the Civil Rights acts of the 1960s, for example). We’ve seen a battle between sprinting vs walking toward the left. We’ve seen accusations of hate and predictions of disaster if conservative policies were ever to be implemented, and promptly implemented disastrous progressive policies and fomented hate for the political right as scapegoat.

Here’s a radical idea, since we’ve done nothing but progressive for decades, why don’t we give conservative a chance? Oh, but we don’t know what conservative actually is any longer because the only notion of conservative our left of center society knows of is the scary straw man caricature created by progressives (progressives in politics, the media, and entertainment industries). The myth of conservative is the reality of Democrats of the past. It’s time for the reality of conservatives to be seen. So what is this supposed reality of conservatism? Click here to find out.
