this particular topic has been on my mind for quite some time. i have been thinking about it in the context of the elections and blogs- and my own life. there is no doubt that i lean left but i am a more to the middle lefty because i have some very definite conservative views as well. i guess that would put me as a centrist or moderate. now, it is very easy sport to rail and rant against the neo cons and the right. their storm trooper mentality makes easy pickings. i also lump folks together--on purpose-- to make a point- and that gets me into all sorts of trouble. i am just going on record as saying- yes, i know that people are different and that not all right wing folks are neo cons, and not all christians, muslims, jews, hindus believe the way that the christian right does, and i am aware that there are some decent conservative folks out there. i know. i choose to lump people together on purpose- to make them think. doesn't matter if you agree with me. i just want you to think about and question your own beliefs and not just follow the crowd blindly.
having said that- i will say this. i feel the same way about the left. exactly. i am not in lockstep with the democratic party. i don't contribute funds to the democratic party. to quote our preznit, "i do believe" that left wing christians are just as harmful to america as right wing. i do think that the left is behaving as hypocritically as they possibly can with their regressive thinking patterns, use of fear tactics and propaganda, and their 'inclusiveness clause.' hey, if you aren't wearing your heart on your sleeve and it ain't bleedin'- you aren't part of the left. so, i am here to put the left on official notice- i will rail and rant against you too. see- i am a patriot. i am interested in fighting for what is best for america and more importantly--- the rest of the planet. i will expose your inadequacies and your inconsistencies. the left isn't better than the right if we are using regressive thinking. we are supposed to be progressive. moving to the right to appeal has only made us like them. i suppose that's ok because the left wants to be 'all inclusive and politically correct.'
not in my world. if you folks on the left aren't comfortable with me pointing out the same types of things i point out in the right, fair notice, don't read here. i don't sugar coat and i won't run from the truth to spare your feelings. now is not the time for singing kumbaya. it is a time to fight for the american constitution and saving the planet. if you aren't on board that bus, left or right, then sayonara.
