The Dems' New Mascot  

Saturday, November 19, 2005

Well, it's been interesting this year, becoming RightWingRocker and sharing the light of truth, justice, and the good old-fashioned American rant.

No. This isn't a farewell address (sorry libs, I'm not going away). But you just have to admit, it has been interesting. We've had all kinds come around here, calling my readers and me everything from racists to xenophobic rednecks, just for being politically in line with those who gave us this great nation of free people. What a horrible thing, huh? For agreeing with Franklin, Madison, Adams, Jefferson, and their ilk, we are all a bunch of evildoers worthy of extinction from the world. And all in less than ten short months.

I have often predicted the demise of the Democratic Party, and have been repeatedly told, by people on both sides of the aisle, that will never happen, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The Donks are, for all intents and purposes, finished.

Yesterday, I linked over to Lord Spatula's post about the leader of the NAACP in Florida going Republican (read that "less socialist than the Donks"). This trend will continue, for various reasons, but after a few dominoes fall, you can expect the effect to "snowball".

The reason, of course, is the long string of stupid things the Democrats are doing in order to try to win votes. They are somehow convinced that Americans really want the socialism they are trying to sell us every day, depsite losing election after election after election. What is funniest about their demise is the long string of lies they tell about Republicans ... from "lying about intelligence" to "budget cuts", their agenda is nothing more than a smear campaign against a party that is becoming more and more like their own. Why continue to smear? No one really knows. So what if the Republicans don't want to increase socialist spending by as much as the Donks next year? They are still increasing it. So what if the intelligence coming out of Iraq may have been flawed (it wasn't, but that's another story). The Dems saw the same reports and came to the same conclusion. Does anyone really think Americans are buying all this crap?

These stupid things remind me of one of my favorite cartoons growing up. Wyle E. Coyote, in his determination to "get" the road runner, consistently failed to do so because his "gadgets", all bought from the "Acme" Company, were all just a bunch of silly contraptions that would never work anyway. What a perfect parallel to socialism - a bunch of programs doomed to fail because of their inherent flaws. Yet, just like Wyle E. Coyote, the Donks don't come up with anything different. They just keep chasing the same dream with the same failed results day after day, month after month, year after year, just as our villain keeps buying his gadgets from "Acme".

Of course, the coyote could chase a different bird, and perhaps earn some success that way, or try a different company's "gadgets", but, as a party, the Donks have no intention of making real changes to their agenda. They simply change the "message", or how they package that agenda. It's the same old "Acme"-brand socialism they've been cramming down our throats since the Raw Deal. When one of their pet programs fails, do they swallow their pride and discontinue it? No - that would be admitting failure. Instead, they just come up with another program designed to "correct" the "imperfections" of the other. When that fails, another program, or worse, stealing more of people's money and spending more on what is already proven to fail. When you try to build a house on a flawed foundation, eventually it's going to come crashing down.

So, now that the defections from the Democrat Party have begun to extend beyond individual politicians and people (and into the leadership of the very organizations the Donks have been counting on), you can expect more and more, until the Democrats fade into abscurity. Once that process is complete, look for one of two things to happen. Either (1.) the Republicans will see the opportunity to reclaim the Constitution as the supreme law of the land and reinstate it and its concepts as America's true calling, forcing the Left to join obscure wacko parties like the Greens, or (2.) the Republicans will stay put on current policy and become the liberal party in America, with the remaining Democrats joining them, and conservatives within the party teaming up with Libertarian and Constitution Party members to form a new party of true conservatives ("Federalists"??) who are willing to stand up for the Constitution.

Either way, the Donks lose - they might as well change their mascot to the coyote. Their socialist agenda will either be completely discredited, or be slowed by their incorporation into the Republican Party, which will then be discredited by the Federalist factions with the real message of the Founders. That message is far too powerful to even stand a chance of losing. It is a great day to be a conservative!
