Good news for conservatives and Republicans. And great praise for Republican Dede Scozzafava for her decision. Prager friends, send her your thanks for her patriotism.
Dede Scozzafava may have set the groundwork absolutely necessary for the birth of a sincere and honest truth upfront conservative movement within the Republican Party to win back America and its finest values!!
From all reports from all fronts, Dede Scozzafava is a devoted Republican in name, and a devoted Republican occasionally on economic issues. Yet she supported that preposterous stimulus package advanced by Obama and many establishment Republicans. Dede was chosen by this Republican establishment to replace the Republican Congressman who had inhabited this office as Republicans had in this upstate New York District since something like an Ice Age ago. Apparently she supports “Gay” rights, card check and abortion and a few other of the usual suspects which turn most conservatives away from this establishment.
These Republicans cannot be trusted by conservatives to be conservative. Yet these are the Republicans who are in the majority in Washington and I suspect in New York and I suspect in the Republican Party in our state of Minnesota. These are also the Republicans who are programmed to dislike conservatives….such as the David Froms who strive to clone the Party to the Left as far as it takes to get a Republican elected. To hell with values. Traditional values get in the way. That is so “yesterday”. Dump the Christians, dump the traditional marriage folks, dump the anti abortionists, camoflage what you believe in, but push private enterprise….especially big time capitalism that footsies up with Big Government. Pander to the gay activists, pander to the feminists, ignore the Marxist trends in our educational systems, bribe the voters with goodies, preach peace, ignore the jihadist assault of Western values….Forget about democracy in the world…….Invest in the future, Big Government and its Global Warming…(oops that is so yesterday today)….”Climate Change.”
The David Froms are not bad people. They want Republicans to win. We Prager fans want Prager conservative Republicans to win. They just need to date each other more often.
Most Republicans went to the same left wing classes in universities as Democrats. Where would they have learned a conservative alternative, both economic and social? Certainly not from graduate school America.
I call myself a Prager conservative. I agree with Dennis, or I could claim Dennis agrees with me about 98% of the time. I enjoy a great advantage over Dennis in that I am a devoted landscape gardener making me an outdoor person. Dennis is an accomplished musician and a very skilled and widely admired radio talk show host. By agreeing with Dennis as if I were his clone, I enthusiastically identify with his views on both social and economic issues…After all, folks, American democracy is based on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. As Prager preaches, ‘The Larger the Government, The Smaller the Citizen!”
I believe America has been in a state of collapse since the Cultural Revolution of the late 1960s. Culturally, morally, ethically, educationally, religiously, philosophically, socially. The nation was under assault by the Left. Only the military held its own. The country went to college and then to graduate school and lost common sense. College became a dumping grounds for political things, things stupid to the hysterical. The teaching professional was replaced by Marxist herd animals feasting on the carcass of academic freedom.
Despite president Obama’s drive for government controls over American life, many in his Democrat constituency believe in traditional American values. That is why I believe that at this time with the mainstream press, the entertainment and educational industries enamored by Obama’s Marxist rhetoric and government expanding agenda with overwhelming one party political control over Congress, the country remains skiddish about the Marxist answer. More than skiddish. Worried.
Besides these Democrats who believe in the real America, there are the Dede Scozzafavas. I believe her when she pleads understanding that she is a devoted Republican. She needs to listen more often to Dennis, or other well rounded conservatives, those which fuse the social and economic traditional American values; those, like Dennis who hold and defend this union as the base for developing and maintaining ideals in our political and governmental enterprise.
Why have Republicans missed this Prager message? Because they went to graduate school in the social sciences, paid dear money to do so, and emerged unsure of the meaning of being American. What they too often learned in graduate school has been disgraceful.
Americans should be grateful for these half way Republicans. Conservatives should join this Party with great hope, knowledge and clarity on the issues, and with resolve. I suspect most Republicans presently in office are closet conservatives. Because of their college education and a tendency to obey their establishment Republican advisors, they learn to hide their Americanism.
America does not need a third national political party…That is, unless the Democrats want to split from its present Marxist oriented leadership to form an American Liberal Party. Republicans and conservatives must dance together in the task to rebuild America.
Dede Scozzafava has put her America first. May God Bless Her for the example she sets.
Advertise your ideas ala Prager, dear Americans. They are winners. Start first with your Republican base. Educate them on the country’s classic values. Teach them tolerance for those socially and educationally unaware, yet be steadfast in your ideals. Help these fellow Americans become aware of the country’s true needs. Remind us of the magic of the American Constitution. Teach Republicans to insist that American courts judge by the law, not by political whim. Support democracy throughout the world.
Remind Republicans of the universal truth of the Woody Allen comment: “Nature is one giant restaurant.” Every living organism must struggle for its place among the living or decline and die.
President Obama is an indoor person. He apparently has never come across that realization.
And don’t forget to say “thankyou” to Dede Scozzafava, that patriot from New York.
