Maybe someone can explain to me how, exactly, conservatives are the aggressors in the culture war? In the conventional narrative of American politics, conservatives are obsessed with social issues. They want to impose their values on everyone else. They want the government involved in your bedroom. Those mean right-wingers want to make "health care choices" for women.
Now consider last week's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to consider two cases stemming from Obamacare: Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius and Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores. Democratic politicians and their fans on social media went ballistic almost instantly. That's hardly unusual these days. But what's revealing is that the talking points are all wrong.
Suddenly, the government is the hero for getting deeply involved in the reproductive choices of nearly every American, whether you want the government involved or not. The bad guy is now your boss who, according to an outraged Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., would be free to keep you from everything from HIV treatment to vaccinating your children if Hobby Lobby has its way. Murray and the White House insist that every business should be compelled by law to protect its employees' "right" to "contraception" that is "free."
ALL leftists , liberals , progressives , socialists , communists and fascists are nothing more than destroyers of morality , decency , integrity , and all else that is good and honorable behavior just to set themselves up as the power brokers in the " new world order " . They are at the very height of filthy scum .
LIBERALS are DESTROYING our Beloved United States Of America!! They ALL LIE to get what they want!!
LIBERALS are evil DISGUSTING, DISRESPECTFUL, LIARS!!
Winners Take RESPONSIBILITY
LOSER'S BLAME OTHERS!!
Progressives like Sen. Patty Murray underscore the fascist underpinnings of the liberal/progressive/socialist movement. How so? Lest we confuse the stomp of jack boots of 1930's Germany's political system with modern fascism/socialism, here's a good definition of fascism from the Internet. Fascism is an economic model in which the state dictates the utilization of privately held assets to achieve public policy goals. Is this not what's been happening for about a hundred years, since about Pres. Wilson?
Aren't progressives using the government to force private institutions and businesses to carry out their welfare nanny state agenda? Hasn't our central, as opposed to intended federalist, government essentially taken over the automotive industry and financial institutions? Does it not control public secondary education and even much of higher education? Has it not taken over the college student loan business? Is it not trying to take over the health care industry with a single payer, the government, system?
Haven't liberal Democrats argued for nationalizing the petroleum, if not much of our energy production industries? Doesn't the government control almost all passenger rail transportation? Aren't they using the EPA, OSHA, and other agencies to control food production? Isn't the government trying to dictate not only wages but also health and retirement benefits of privately employed employees?
So, does anyone really believe we've a working Constitution with an intact Bill of Rights? Consider this, fascism is but one side of a coin with socialism on the other side. Fascism is just a step on the road to socialism, and perhaps even communism.
Where's Thomas Paine when we need him? Who can be the flag bearer on a national level to articulately state the essential need for a democratic Republic under the rule of constitutional law with a free market capitalist economy? Is it time to dust off the Declaration of Independence and take it to heart with a vengeance?
