Since the shootings took place in Tucson, I have heard the left ranting and raving against Governor Sarah Palin, talk radio and other conservative pundits in America. Liberals have been like bulldogs fighting over a bone with their scratching and screaming assault on free speech in America.
None of us in the middle or the right of political ideology should be surprised.
None of us in the middle or on the right should expect them to take an inch of responsibility for the mess America now finds itself.
The fact that the Left promoted and anointed such an inexperienced person to the White House, and most Americans fell for this bought and paid for production is enough to make any sane person scream.
So my question is when are YOU, the average American, going to finally believe that you have more brains and commonsense in your little finger than most politicians, past and present? Do you now understand that the 'good ole boys' network in America is destroying your country and that you, via your vote and your inability to credit yourself for having a brain has aided and abetted this situation?
When describing a 'commoner' aka, Governor Palin, as 'too stupid for words,' the old guard – on both sides of the aisle – demonstrates its disdain for the average American. It comes from the Left and the Right because they all know better than any of you how to keep you at each other's throat by useless diversionary tactics and groundless accusations. They know better than you and always will what is good for you so you can just sit your arse down and shut up.
That's the goal. It's what both sides of the aisle want. Either that or they want you to fight with each other. Even better, the Washington ‘elites’ have found a smokescreen that is far more effective: instead of calling you dumb, they can demonstrate how dumb you are by manufacturing a fight or a crisis and then stand back snickering in the corner while you all go at it like high school kids. It’s been like the worst play ever produced in your country pitting American against American.
Political goals are no longer about differences in political ideology; it is now about Right and Left. They no longer care about what is good or bad for America; it must be about American hating American. Disagreement is not allowed anymore. Hate is the goal and so far, they are winning.
From my view here in the North, I cannot help but wonder why, YOU the average American, have no trust in yourself? Do YOU think you are stupid? Too dumb to know right from wrong? Top from bottom? Fiscal responsibility as opposed to a one way train trip to bankruptcy? That is where America is headed and BOTH parties have dragged your country down this road without much protest from the average American.
Content they were that you were ‘dumbed down’ enough and fighting with each other so you would be distracted and just sit down and shut up. Americans, stay out of the way of the elites who know how you should live your life, run your country and interpret your Constitution the way they want to for you. You are too dumb to do so, you know. Where is your diploma from Harvard or the likes?
There is one organization that has stood up and is still standing up to the elites and that is the Tea Party Groups. A wonderful organization of Americans of all colours and all political thinking who are taking action behind the scenes to change the way things are being done in your country. If you are not a member, you need to get up off your couch and find a group to join. This is a turning point in the history of your country and you can be a part of the change or continue to be a part of the problem. Its time to roll America! It's time to show the powers that be just how dumb you really aren't.
Lastly, for those of you with Palin Derangement Syndrome (PD, Governor Palin is an American who knows how to be a leader. Palin leads by example. She may not be a Harvard grad, but she is fast getting an education from America’s political arena of hard knocks. People keep trying to knock her down and she keeps taking the blows.
I give kudos to a real American who loves her country and the people in it. A real politician who knows that the hearts and minds of all good Americans is what will help her save the country she loves. You see, she understands that Americans are not dumb. They were just put to sleep by all the garbage ya'll have been tossing their way for a few years now. In the end, there is nothing dumb about Americans when they gather together under their flag and start their march to take their country back. That began a year or more ago and they are still marching.
When American patriots come knocking on your door, all of you who tried to dumb down your fellow country men and women, look for Palin walking right beside them. Not in front of or behind, but side by side because that in the end is what true leadership is all about.
Just a view from my side of the border.
