Why not family values AND common sense?

Is it really that hard to have both?

by Don Hank

The top leadership of the GOP today is almost indistinguishable from the Democrat Party.

Here is a little insight from Steve Deace, and it is just the tip of the iceberg:


Based on the above and countless other examples, it should be obvious that the R after a candidate’s name means nothing, absolutely nothing, today.

Our only hope is to start replacing these traitors with real conservatives.

The US public is running scared. We keep hearing that this or that Republican is saying the right things. Well, duh! Elections are right around the corner. Would you expect them to say what they really think? Romney harshly criticizes Obama, but he was the brains behind Obamacare.

Donald Trump recently urged Obama to show his birth certificate. Softheaded conservatives immediately forgot Trump had given big bucks to the mayoral campaign of Rahm Emanuel, an arch-Marxist who likes to exploit crises, and rushed to recruit Trump for president.

Newt Gingrich talks like a conservative, but is enthusiastic about the Left’s environmental policies, which are trashing American industry and energy. Yet he is considered one of the most likel candidates for a 2012 run.

I am wondering: What would a Republican have to do or say before the masses figured that he was not a conservative who was looking out for their interests.

I suspect if a party-backed Republican were to list “Communist Manifesto” as his favorite book, call Christianity the most dangerous religion on earth, dance naked at a gay bar, donate a couple of thousand dollars to Planned Parenthood and NPR and write speeches for Obama, “conservatives” would back his candidacy to the hilt in 2012 as long as he mouthed the right words just before elections (they’d say he had an epiphany) and got the backing of Fox News.

Steve Deace makes a good point about the treacherous Iowa governor.

On the other hand, Steve seems to favor Mike Huckabee, who in fact does seem more socially conservative than many others. But Mike as governor ran what many Arkansas residents called a sanctuary state, and no one seems to know where he stands on illegal immigration today. He also said in the last campaign that he would have named Richard Haass, head of the CFR, as his secretary of state. Haass had just written an article critical of sovereignty for nations like the USA. Huck generally talks like an establishment Christian (not necessarily a biblical Christian?) and the mainstream denominations generally want amnesty. They also generally backed Obama’s candidacy. So who is Huck, really?

In a country with over 20% unemployment, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens would be disastrous.

I think we need a combination of Christian values and common sense, and what we seem to have is 2 camps, one with the Christian values (do they think Jesus condemned common sense?) and the other with common sense (don’t they know Western culture and economics owe their success to Christianity?), and not too many Americans with both.

Both camps have wonderful things to offer. They really need to get together and iron out their differences.

Great piece Don I love the way Cicero put it: “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. “An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies… Read more »

Compromise leads to confusion which ends in collapse.
What happened in 74 will echo evermore.
Today’s Tea Partiers had better heed.

My response to Lee Gliddon’s piece titled ‘psyhology 101’ among sentient lower primates. Perhaps it could be labeled ‘The Unknown Simian’: ” We all know about the three Tibetan monkeys who said: ‘see no’, ‘speak no’, and ‘hear no evil’. The fourth simian is virtually never acknowledged, who whispered, ‘DO NO EVIL’. The demoncrats of congress = the three benighted chimps who ‘tread down’ the fourth and the latter is now cowed to climb Jacob’s ladder. Not to worry, for legislators will be cleaned out en masse. The ‘do no evil’ monk will be dead and Amerika will be ruled… Read more »
