Liberal Barbarians In Congress

I remember a time when the Democrats and Republicans in Congress could work together to some extent. That was when a Democrat was president and Democrats had majorities in both houses of Congress. The Republican minority got no consideration from the Democrats on any issue. The Republicans knew that the only way they could pass conservative legislation was to win the hearts and minds of the majority of American voters. So, they defined their values, stated their positions on controversial issues and asked the voters to compare their ideas and commitments to the Democrats’.
While the Democrats were in control, there were no crying and screaming tantrums from any Republican in Congress. There were no demands by any Republican that the Democrats adopt the Republican agenda. But now, the Democrats constantly cry, scream and have conniption fits as do spoiled little children when they are not given everything they demand. The current Democrat party has been taken over by the hard-boiled left. They want the majority to succumb to the most barbaric of the minority. I am not talking about the rank and file Democrats who have been brainwashed into blindly voting for these people. I am talking about the Democrats in Congress, especially their leadership.
Now that the Democrats are totally and justifiably in the minority, they are livid. They have no idea of what to do. They refuse to believe that they are wrong about anything. And, everything that has worked in the past doesn’t work anymore, but nonetheless, they will try it all again. It appears that the values the Democrats espouse and their positions on controversial issues are shared by a measurable minority of Americans. Maybe they are just too smart to win elections in this century.
I compare the difference in the political parties’ leadership with what I once saw on an episode of the original Star Trek TV series. I think it was Mr. Spock who philosophized, “It is easier for civilized people to act like barbarians than barbarians to act like civilized people.”
Liberal leaders in government have been barbarians for decades but they were in the majority, so they were unchallenged barbarians. But now, they have been removed from power and they have been challenged. Only in the last four years has their rabid lust to regain and maintain power been so apparent. Watch them, they will offer nothing constructive. They will try to destroy our form of government if they cannot regain power (actually, they tried to destroy our form of government while they were in power.) Their ‘perversions-on-demand’ ideals are more important to them than the government that our founders envisioned and ‘we-the-people’ have chosen.
Now, it turns out that President Bush’s and Senator John Kerry’s academic record at Yale are nearly identical, and John Kerry was caught on tape during his presidential campaign exclaiming,  “How can I be losing to that idiot?” Those facts will be buried by the liberal media.
The Democrat National Committee Chairman Howard Dean suggests jail time for the Republican House leader Tom Delay with no charges pending and no evidence that any crime was committed. Howard Dean speaks for the Democrat Party, so the Democrat Party supports jail time for a Republican who has never been charged with a crime. Are Howard Dean and the Democrat party leadership just corrupt, or are they communists? I believe they are both. Every few days I hear another Democrat special interest group proclaim Americans to be the most evil people in the world.
The Democrat party leadership in America has no respect for our founders or our Constitution. They would choose Fidel Castro, Saddam Hussein, or Ted Kennedy as President over George Bush. They proclaim that all Republicans  and all people who disagree with them are evil and incredibly stupid. They act as though Abraham Lincoln was a Democrat. He was a Republican. They pretend that the Republican minority in the Congress in 1964 was against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 when the Democrat majority tried to bury it. Al Gore, Sr. was the most outspoken opponent of equal rights for black Americans in 1964.
All despots consider themselves above all other humans, as do all liberal Democrats and all liberal Republicans in the U.S. Congress. Contemporary liberalism in America is focused on its ultimate goal of an American communist state ruled by a dictator the likes of Howard Dean, Ted Kennedy or the legacy of Al Gore, Sr.
