Thank you liberals...
The “I” is All/Most Tea Party People. Gee, I didn’t know there was something wrong with me—with my thinking. The mainstream press and their favorite Whitehouse say so. I am part of the fringe, the wacko-right—the uninformed tea partiers. That makes me an outcast, a second-class citizen—one who should not be taken seriously.
I suppose I should learn my lesson and become an intelligent person like those characters who call me names, spit on me, put me down for my beliefs, and try to ignore me with all the force the media can scrape together and use—and my outdated, “ignorant” notions of freedom and such. I could fake it perhaps. It apparently is not intelligent to question the government’s spending and debt. To them it is nowhere near intelligent to believe the Constitution is the founding document under which all law, all regulation, all taxes should fall. I sure didn’t know that until the brilliant politicians, professors and newsreaders told me. I mean, come on! It was written over two-hundred years ago and is only paper!
I am to be cast aside as a nuisance for my ideas of liberty, my silly opinion that my earnings belong to me first—and if I tithe to a church and if I pay my taxes, I do so as a free-will citizen making those decisions on my own and not because of coercion or force. Yeah, right. If taxes were voluntary, how much would be freely offered over to this government?
I don’t know the answer to that question but I can guess at a figure and that figure would not be anywhere close to what is collected now. There’s something wrong with me to believe our money should not be used for pork projects, enriching political allies, or directly put into the pocket—and retirement accounts—of politicians who are able to vote for every single expenditure. I should hang my head in shame that I am not as smart as Katie, Howard Dean, Harry, Nancy, or Barack. I must be profusely sorry that I cannot match the wit and wisdom of Bill Maher or Michael Moore! Bill, Mike… I didn’t answer the question as to when life begins that it was “above my pay grade.” I mean that, regardless of how I may feel about the issue of choice and all, the logic of Barack follows that since he does not want to answer when life begins, he thinks it is right in every case to kill it before it grows—and force every state—and family—to comply?? It’s a hell of a consequence for a life because the question is above one’s pay grade, isn’t it.
The point made here by this second-class citizen is Barack’s answer, and that was only a glimpse of what we were to have soon—a feckless, politically correct administration pushing and getting vast spending on every sub-set of political supporters in the country. More recently, he couldn’t even bring himself to recite a portion of the Declaration of Independence, “endowed by our creator.” He left out the word “creator.” I am ignorant though and cannot possibly understand the government’s nuance here. Nuance, we sure need more nuance.
I am too dumb to understand that government spending was and is necessary to stimulate the economy (jobs be damned). I do not have the knowledge necessary to see that creating debt creates jobs. I am too uneducated to appreciate the regulations and taxes put into place—that they ought not affect any enterprise—I have not come to accept the notion that business must be able to print their own money (can’t they?) and so the costs are no big deal to any of them. I am too rigid to accept a forced purchase of healthcare I won’t even like. How dare ignorant me!
I thank all the pundits and newsreaders, the leftist politicians and the greatly better informed voters who make up the “true center” of this country who put me into my place! It is better to accept the ideology of people like a Becker, Jones, Jarrett, Solis, Holder, Salazar, Sebelius—to name a few, and Obama his highness, honorable self, and not question! I must love and trust this government and everything it is doing! I must happily meet the requirement to accept all they stand for and all they do or continue to act out as a second-class citizen.
Sure, I can do that if I wanted to. The path of least resistance is easy.
Then on second thought, it’s fun to be a gangster. Being contrary is as American as apple pie, Ford, and baseball. I know my ignorant butt will be at the polls come Tuesday, November 2, 2010 and I know how I will vote. That’ll be a great day for all us second-class citizens!
