Right Must Summon Moral Courage To Fight Back ^ | January 25, 2013 | David Limbaugh

Posted on 01/25/2013 3:39:59 AM PST by Kaslin

Welcome to an America with liberalism in full ascendancy as golfer Phil Mickelson apologizes for doing nothing wrong while the Obama administration lambasts its opponents for justly demanding it apologize for doing plenty wrong on Benghazi.

Welcome to a land where the gravest problem threatening the nation is spending, where the Democratic president refuses to cut, where the Democratic Senate lawlessly refuses to pass a budget and where Democrats thwart congressional GOP efforts to enact spending and entitlement reform, yet the public is conned into believing that Republicans are the problem.

Welcome to a culture in which the political left is frighteningly intolerant toward dissenting views yet convinces many that right-wingers are the close-minded ones.

Welcome to a society in which the left increasingly celebrates licentiousness and the abandonment of traditional standards of morality yet holds itself out as the guardian of society's progressive moral order.

Frankly, I don't know whether the majority of Americans have fundamentally changed, whether ignorance, apathy and/or a sense of helplessness have seized too many right-thinking Americans, whether the Saul Alinsky-fed Democrats are just superior at propaganda or whether the Republican political class, out of frustration or lack of conviction, has given up.

I'm not sure the American people are as liberal as it seems, if for no other reason than liberals still conceal their true intentions or disguise them in such platitudinous language that we never have a true referendum on liberalism.

President Obama's inaugural speech was a bold reaffirmation of his radical liberal prescription for the country but wrapped in the veneer of constitutionalism. That this ruse partially succeeded is borne out by the sincere assessment of some intellectually honest liberals that his speech signaled a call for moderation.

I'm not convinced the American people are shunning conservatism, if for no other reason than conservatism lacks effective political leaders to clearly articulate the case for conservatism, such that we never have a true referendum on conservatism.

Yet liberalism is prevailing in the halls of government and in our culture, and with its victories, liberals are getting cockier, more aggressive and less tolerant.

The prevailing majority, under the demagogic leadership and political power of President Obama, is bullying and beating down its dissenters and willing to trample on the Constitution anytime it interferes with their ends.

Is this the America our forefathers established and sweat blood to preserve? Is this really the America we want to bequeath our children? Is its rapid descent, the orchestration of which is being led by a president who doesn't believe in its founding principles, a foregone conclusion?

The recent kerfuffle involving golfer Phil Mickelson is illustrative of the enormous upheaval we are witnessing in America today. Mickelson complained that he is paying nearly two-thirds of every dollar he makes in taxes. He innocuously implied he may move from California to reduce his state tax burden.

The sports media, which are every bit as shamelessly liberal as their counterparts in the political media, savaged Mickelson for daring to complain about paying his "fair share." After they shamed him, Mickelson apologized -- regrettably -- saying he should have kept his thoughts to himself.

Why? Is dissenting opinion not allowed? Is he a reprobate for believing it's excessive for government to confiscate two-thirds of every dollar he makes?

It's no one else's business how much Mickelson makes. Do we want a free nation, or do we prefer one in which state planners can control how much we make and, to paraphrase President Obama, tell us when we've made enough money? Do we want to substitute for the American dream the maxim, "Feel free to try to succeed in America, but if you do, you'll immediately be demonized and cut down to size"?

Should we applaud a culture that lacks the moral courage to discourage envy and covetousness and instead champions them? This is liberalism, folks. This is the left's ideal America.

Mickelson neither advocated lower taxes nor announced a newfound interest in political activism. He simply discussed his own situation. He didn't ask for government relief. He merely announced he may exercise self-help and remove himself from that oppressive jurisdiction.

For that -- for daring to announce he may exercise a freedom he still has, namely to relocate, for refusing to bow to the collective -- the freedom haters on the left unleashed on him their wrath.

Congratulations, liberals. You are not only skewering the American dream but also trying to smother the American spirit in patriots who are refusing to abandon that sacred dream.

I pray that we have more Phil Mickelsons willing to voice their opinion, but I would hope that, when challenged, they would stick to their guns (pun intended) and fight back.

Things look bleak for freedom lovers today, but this fight is far from over. Let the Mickelson experience serve as a lesson of both how to speak up and how not to retreat when attacked.

Half-plaudits to Phil Mickelson -- but only half.

Fight on, patriots.

Liberal just get more attention because they draw it to themselves. I’m convinced that the majority of this nation has shifted more ‘right’ than they would have us believe but since they are such attention whores and are constantly Tweeting, posting on Facebook, uploading videos to YouTube and so heavily entrenched in the entertainment industry and news media, it’s hard to believe anyone thinks differently than they do, but they do. One thing you can say about Obama- he has gotten more people praying and back in the church than any other president in history, he is the best gun salesman in history, and he has made more people appreciate the Constitution than another president in U.S. History. If we survive him I am pretty sure there will be new laws and checks and balances put in place to limit the use of Executive Order and powers of the POTUS. So actually he may turn out to be a good thing for the U.S...: )

Will David Limbaugh be the one to unify and inspire Republicans to victory in 2014? Our nation needs such a man.

The Obamanations see themselves as a tight-knit clique of socialists/communists/unions/progs/liberals----bound together by "enlightened" values — like reason, tolerance, diversity and equality......

Mmmmmmm.........that sounds an awful lot like the "People's Temple." Rev Jim Jones promised a "better life, hope and change.....and diversity." Tolerant and compassionate Rev Jim Jones brought lotsa Kool-aid (and cases of cyanide) for the diverse crowd that blindly followed him to a place "from which there was no escape."


THE OBAMA WRAP ---These people are even scarier in triumph, when they've clearly mocked democracy and stolen the election. America has witnessed the consequences of a generation inculcated with moral relativity and situation ethics. The ghost of Saul Alinsky lurks behind M/M Obama, Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Anita "Mao" Dunn, Valerie whatsherface, and the rest of the Ohaha ilk.

They clearly see themselves as "deconstructionists"----savagely committed to tearing down America's traditions. Every manaical official govt act is dedicated to chipping away at the bulwark of American freedoms.

The Obamanations are a virulent anti-American plague of religion haters.......vacant, surly Me-First humanoids who worship at The Church of Whatever Works For Me. Cadres of self-absorbed punks squatting in govt are clearly disturbed---obsessed with religious cleansing and kicking so/con Repubs to the curb.

The Ohaha savages duped the citizenry, led us over a multi- trillion dollar deficit cliff, into massive corrupt bailouts, and atrocities like amnesty.

Their motto: "Everything For Us--Nothing For You."

That same generation inculcated with moral relativity and situation ethics has segued into The Entitlement Generation---better known as "Pay Me--I'm a Victim.

We need to remember that the Obamanoids are ruthless predators w/ no empathy for others and no remorse; anti-social psychopaths who recognize no moral boundaries--aggressively going after what they want, irregardless of the consequences to others.

Paraphrasing Saul Alinsky----the author of evil anti-religious satanism......"they do not have a fixed truth -- truth to them is relative and changing..... they are free from the shackles of dogma."

"How'd I get reelected despite Benghazi, trillion dollar deficits, and a crappy economy? Easy---all Democrats need to win are knee-pads to suckup for votes, a blank check from the US Treasury, a bleeding heart and a steady supply of transfusions."


HERE'S WHY WE WIN---THEY LOSE Ohaha's powerful secular/welfare/socialist/union coalition now dominates public life. But it has a very short shelf history shows.

The self-serving progs live in a dark place----they know only (1) the govt as enforcer, and, (2) the individual to be crushed.

Whereas Conservatiives are strongly united by love of country----and a dynamic force of issue-centered groups, associations, churches, tea parties, the power of the internet and web sites. There's powerful organizing issues----patriots, military, gun owners, pro-lifers, prayer groups, 1st amendment defenders, Bible study groups.........and on and on and on.

Obama's forces of evil refuse to recognize constitutional freedoms----and refuse play by the constitutiona norms in place.

The Founders escaped foreign domination and structured our govt to protect the citizenry from tyrants and oppression. The safeguards are there----they merely have to be mobilized.


Conservatives have the manpower to conduct democratically-inspired sabotage at every point. Hold up every bill, refuse to fund anything, filibuster the filibuster, investigate, and so on.

We are in the best position vis a vis the Dem/Prog/Obamanations. That's why we win, they lose.
