For years local Republicans have warned about the consequences of supporting the Democrat party and its candidates. In order to get conservatives to elect local Democrats party leaders often denied the connections between liberals at the national level and any negative effects of continuing to give power to local Democrats. The warnings of how liberal Democrats would behave if they ever elected one of their goofball lefties to run the party has now become a reality and the effects of it are trickling down to our beloved Texas.
From their crazy economic philosophy of trying to “spend us out of a recession” to their disastrous efforts to force universal healthcare in uncertain economic times, Democrats are finally kicking their long held beliefs in gear with Barack Hussein Obama as the head of their organization. Texans, as conservative as we generally are, have no place to hide. We may be better off than most states and people may be fleeing them to get here, but this administration’s attacks on small businesses and corporations and success in general continue to be a heavy burden on every state in the union. While Obama continues to blame George W. Bush, he also continues to set records for being the slowest human being to catch on and do the things that help this country recover from tough times.
Texas will not be able to hide, and Liberty county will not be exempt, if Democrats include legalizing gay marriage in their party platform and they are successful in passing it through Congress. All those have said party doesn’t matter and all of those who have asked rhetorically, “what difference does a party platform make, no one reads it” will soon have an opportunity to learn that the planks in a party platform are the ultimate goals of a majority of any political party.
Obama is a dream come true for liberals who have wanted to move more aggressively to achieve their goals. Not coincidentally, he is the downfall of the local Democrat party here in Liberty county. Politicians are jumping ship in droves and denying they ever were anything but conservatives since someone is really pushing this country to incorporate the socialists’ beliefs about more government influence and less Christian influence.
We will have a chance in less than 100 days to stop giving the Democrat party any influence from here when the few local Democrats that did not retire or camouflage themselves as Republicans face the voters. Any local Democrat politician who did not switch parties and ran on the same ticket as Barack Obama has no claims to conservatism. And conservatives surely will recognize this and send them packing in November.
