When things are investigated, knowledge is extended. When knowledge is extended, the will becomes sincere. When the will is sincere, the mind is correct. When the mind is correct, the self is cultivated. -- Confucius
Politically correct ideals are garbage: true wisdom comes from decades of deep thought and neutral observation. Only a so-called sociopath could ascertain wisdom from this crazy world in a neutral way. Cool thoughts- uncorrupted by modern politics, social norms, or societal ideals- are required for wisdom. Questioning everything, and going against the grain on all universally accepted norms is the path to true intelligence. The Gods notice this.

Democrats are Idiots

-->
Hopefully people who have read my scathing piece on republicans do not assume I am a democrat. I would like to make that clear here. My family, on both sides, as far back as anyone can remember have all been democrats. Over the years, though, I have grown weary of a few of their attributes. They pretend to be the Holy Alternative to the Evil GOP, but actually are little better, and sometimes even worse than their opposition. The Idiots are useless pawns these days, making a lot of noise and then compromising their former ideals again and again. They have lost this former lifelong supporter for several reasons.

First, they really are obsessed with raising taxes. They claim that Americans pay the lowest taxes in the industrialized world, and therefore we are spoiled and should pay more. They also like to list all the things govt. pays for and then say- see, without taxes you wouldn't get any of this! These two arguments are silly however. Just because Europeans pay more taxes than us, why does that mean that we have to?Maybe their govt. manages the money better, has more projects to spend it on, or else their citizens should be protesting more? The listing-of-services-excuse is even sillier. They like to list things like traffic lights, light bulbs in schools, work safety laws, clean water, and so on. They do not ever list subsidies, wars, foreign military bases, bailouts, interest to the Fed, black ops, NASA's pointless projects, the ever increasing fleet of presidential choppers, and so on and so on. Democrats do mention that if you look at any pie chart of the US budget, for any fiscal year, it nearly always indicates that law enforcement and general government takes up 2% of the budget. And the other 98%? Mostly wasted. At least 15% is totally wasted, and another 50%+ is mismanaged terribly. So they need to raise taxes to continue to put up street lights and enforce OSHA rules? I don't think so. Until they stop wasting our money, there is no excuse for any new taxes for any reason.

I also disagree with their views on gun control. Like it or not, it is constitutional to have guns. They need to accept that. Fighting over carrying them outside ones' homes is alright: public safety comes into play. But banning them from inside private citizens' homes? They did it in D.C, though it was later overturned on a federal level. It is understandable that they want to curb the hoarding of guns, ammo, and ordnance by people abusing their class A gun dealer licenses. But that is a separate issue, and has nothing to do with the people of D.C. or elsewhere. Democrats need to back off their blanket anti-gun stance, as it alienates lots of voters and really does not not make sense at times.

Their growing fascination in recent years with gay rights is also something I cannot stomach. As I wrote before, gay people are citizens that have the same rights we do. They do not need special rights. If they would stop prancing around in drag, talking in squeeky voices, and acting like children, then maybe straight people would respect them more. Democrats are hell bent on championing the gay rights bandwagon to a weird degree. Maybe after they succeed, they will champion the nudist subculture so they can wander the streets unmolested as well.

One more reason I dislike them is their hawkish foreign policies. Republicans like to build up military forces, but they threaten a lot too. Democrats like to use the forces more, and without warning. Look at all of Clinton's military strikes against Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Iraq, Serbia...And his wife seems to be anxious to launch a preemptive nuclear strike against someone-anyone- but preferably Iran, which is not even a threat to this country. The republicans just want to continue their preplanned (pre- as in before 9/11) two front war for oil profits and arms sales. Few other nations interest them militarily. The democrats could strike any nation though, even for reasons other than oil. Neither party's policy is good here.

They also are not brave enough to stand up to the GOP, and constantly give in to them on important issues and floor votes. It seems like good cop/bad cop between the two parties, and a compromise nearly always wins out. Why compromise? With them? I say, fight out the facts, expose the republican lies and special interests; let the constituents find out. Just like the GOP did with the budget battle recently: they refused to compromise and the whole world seen them for what they were. Their overt defense of big oil and insistence upon Medicaid cuts really showed their true colors. Expect mass changes in party listing on voter registrations soon. But the democrats, so allegedly holy- being the good cop- rarely duke it out and protract the process for a good cause. They are wimps.

The worst point of all about the democratic party is their ongoing, blatant defense of illegal aliens and their refusal to allow the border to be defended. Rehashing this issue will do little here, though I refer you to my previous posts, here, here and here. Also see newp.org and Vdare.com.  Notice those sites, as well as the Minuteman site, all attract the right wing types, so there is a sizable amount of republican nonsense on them, such as Clinton bashing and gun hoarding statements. But it is telling: why aren't there any liberals out to close the border? Why don't the liberals give a damn about national sovereignty, economic protection, or even enforcing already existing laws? Where are they? They are backing up the ACLU, the Sierra Club, the Green Party- all three traitorous organizations determined to meld Mexico with America. It is noteworthy that no president of any party as yet has built a wall, defense line, or even a fence on our southern border. But which president has had the federal govt. sue every state that tried to enact or enforce its own or federal immigration law? The current one: a democrat. Arizona. Alabama. A sheriff in Arizona. Before the US feds could sue Georgia, Mexico did. A lawsuit is brewing against Utah as well. Oklahoma and South Carolina may be next. Obviously, Obama the democrat has no interest in maintaining an international border, and therefore snubs his nose at US Sovereignty. All of his campaign talk of “hope” and “change” apparently just applied to gays and illegal aliens. And the democrats love him. Meanwhile, who are the major politicians supporting border protection? Romney, McCain, Buchanan, Trump- all republicans.

The Democratic Party should be renamed the Traitor Party for their actions supporting illegal immigration. Or perhaps the Gay Party, or the Compromisers, the Gun Grabbers, or the old standard- Tax and Spend. 


{Not to say that the republicans are any better- indeed, they are even worse in many ways. Republicans are corporate shills that can barely disguise their seething hatred for the poor. They are overt warmongers, and always for oil profits. They are pathological liars, extreme hypocrites, racists, and borderline fascists. They also love to use devious tactics such as massive vote fraud, front groups, contrived scandals, delay tactics, smear campaigns, hyperbole, and mass deception. Pick your poison.}
