Hillary and the Establishment GOP Sowing and Reaping

As I watched the Demo­c­rat Debate last week, or as I should more accu­rately say flipped from back and forth from the Dem debate and Hogan’s Heroes Reruns because there is only so much social­ism and Rachel Mad­dow a per­son can take, I found myself fas­ci­nated by the predica­ment that Hillary Clin­ton finds her­self in con­cern­ing Sen­a­tor Sanders.

What’s fas­ci­nat­ing about it is that it’s the mir­ror image of the prob­lem the GOP has and it comes from sim­i­lar roots.

For decades the left has spent its time reject­ing tra­di­tional judeo chris­tian­ity and the val­ues that come with it. The con­cept of respect for God, a moral order, the value of work and self reliance and have imbued these val­ues into the cul­ture and edu­ca­tional sys­tem to the point where any per­son who does not have every com­fort they have dreamed of is con­sid­ered oppressed and every per­son who has suc­ceeded is an oppressor.

And while this fits per­fectly with the phi­los­o­phy of a life­time social­ist who hon­ey­moons in the Soviet Union dur­ing the cold war and a pres­i­dent that believes that the United States is the pri­mary source of evil in the uni­verse if one has spent a life­time with a goal of power and wealth and has said, done and chased what­ever is pop­u­lar enough to gain it, let’s call such a per­son, oh, Hillary Clin­ton, sud­denly finds her­self with a record that dia­met­ri­cally opposes all of the things that they have con­di­tioned their sup­port­ers to believe.

Thus the Clin­tons and the DNC who invested their souls into their fam­ily rather than reject­ing them when given the moral choice decades ago find them­selves scram­bling in an age of rel­a­tive moral­ity to paint them­selves as accept­able to those they have con­di­tioned to believe in rel­a­tive ever chang­ing stan­dards, with the full knowl­edge that the it may not be enough to allow them to keep the power and the wealth it generates.

Oddly enough this is almost the mir­ror image of what has been going on in the GOP with conservatives.

Because as the Democ­rats rapidly became an unwel­come place for peo­ple of faith and those who hon­ored the tra­di­tional Judeo Chris­t­ian Amer­i­can cul­ture the GOP by default began to pick up such people.

Mean­while The GOP which once thanks to the vast wealth the Civil war cre­ated, had mor­phed into a party favor­ing busi­ness & elites while los­ing the favor of the masses as those who fought under the union ban­ner & their chil­dren died, sud­denly founds them­selves trans­formed by the influx of peo­ple of faith and tra­di­tional Amer­i­can Cul­ture once again a party of the masses.

The only prob­lem was while they loved get­ting those votes and the power that being elected gave them, those same GOP elites didn’t love the masses that gave said votes to them.

So began the reg­u­lar cycle of GOP can­di­dates that every elec­tion year promised to gov­ern as con­ser­v­a­tive tra­di­tional Amer­i­cans but cut and ran from those posi­tions as soon as they were over.

Now given that the choice for vot­ers is one party or the other, the Obama years have given the GOP the default vic­tory in off year elec­tions but as Mark Steyn warned not act­ing after such a vic­tory is a recipe for dis­as­ter for them.

Thus, with their estab­lish­ment can­di­dates fal­ter­ing forced to choose between wild­card Don­ald Trump and 98% con­ser­v­a­tive Marco Rubio in order to stop 100% con­ser­v­a­tive Ted Cruz who has made his cam­paign about actu­ally doing what the GOP keeps claim­ing it will.

All of this both on the Demo­c­rat side and the GOP side comes from the same source, the desire to gain power for per­sonal advance­ment and dis­dain for the peo­ple who grant them said power.

You would think it wasn’t a ques­tion of two dif­fer­ent par­ties, might one. In fact one might even call it a cartel.

The good news is that both my face and web traf­fic have recov­ered. Jan­u­ary 2016 marks the 4th straight month of recov­ery and the dol­drums of 2014 & early 2015 seem com­pletely behind.

The bad news is DaTip­jar has not recov­ered to 2013 lev­els yet. With a $62 a day avg goal as of Jan 30th we’re reached where I hoped we’d be Jan­u­ary 7th, just over 25%.

Given where the econ­omy is rather than where the MSM pre­tends it is and that it is Jan­u­ary both are under­stand­able and to those who have kicked in (par­tic­u­larly sub­scribers), thanks much.

If how­ever you have not & are both able and inclined I’d really appre­ci­ate it if you’d help us either close Jan­u­ary strong or start Feb­ru­ary stronger by hit­ting DaTipJar.

As I watched the Democrat Debate last week, or as I should more accurately say flipped from back and forth from the Dem debate and Hogan’s Heroes Reruns because there is only so much socialism and Rachel Maddow a person can take, I found myself fascinated by the predicament that Hillary Clinton finds herself in concerning Senator Sanders.

What’s fascinating about it is that it’s the mirror image of the problem the GOP has and it comes from similar roots.

For decades the left has spent its time rejecting traditional judeo christianity and the values that come with it. The concept of respect for God, a moral order, the value of work and self reliance and have imbued these values into the culture and educational system to the point where any person who does not have every comfort they have dreamed of is considered oppressed and every person who has succeeded is an oppressor.

And while this fits perfectly with the philosophy of a lifetime socialist who honeymoons in the Soviet Union during the cold war and a president that believes that the United States is the primary source of evil in the universe if one has spent a lifetime with a goal of power and wealth and has said, done and chased whatever is popular enough to gain it, let’s call such a person, oh, Hillary Clinton, suddenly finds herself with a record that diametrically opposes all of the things that they have conditioned their supporters to believe.

Thus the Clintons and the DNC who invested their souls into their family rather than rejecting them when given the moral choice decades ago find themselves scrambling in an age of relative morality to paint themselves as acceptable to those they have conditioned to believe in relative ever changing standards, with the full knowledge that the it may not be enough to allow them to keep the power and the wealth it generates.

Oddly enough this is almost the mirror image of what has been going on in the GOP with conservatives.

Because as the Democrats rapidly became an unwelcome place for people of faith and those who honored the traditional Judeo Christian American culture the GOP by default began to pick up such people.

Meanwhile The GOP which once thanks to the vast wealth the Civil war created, had morphed into a party favoring business & elites while losing the favor of the masses as those who fought under the union banner & their children died, suddenly founds themselves transformed by the influx of people of faith and traditional American Culture once again a party of the masses.

The only problem was while they loved getting those votes and the power that being elected gave them, those same GOP elites didn’t love the masses that gave said votes to them.

So began the regular cycle of GOP candidates that every election year promised to govern as conservative traditional Americans but cut and ran from those positions as soon as they were over.

Now given that the choice for voters is one party or the other, the Obama years have given the GOP the default victory in off year elections but as Mark Steyn warned not acting after such a victory is a recipe for disaster for them.

Thus, with their establishment candidates faltering forced to choose between wildcard Donald Trump and 98% conservative Marco Rubio in order to stop 100% conservative Ted Cruz who has made his campaign about actually doing what the GOP keeps claiming it will.

All of this both on the Democrat side and the GOP side comes from the same source, the desire to gain power for personal advancement and disdain for the people who grant them said power.

You would think it wasn’t a question of two different parties, might one. In fact one might even call it a cartel.

The good news is that both my face and web traffic have recovered. January 2016 marks the 4th straight month of recovery and the doldrums of 2014 & early 2015 seem completely behind.

The bad news is DaTipjar has not recovered to 2013 levels yet. With a $62 a day avg goal as of Jan 30th we’re reached where I hoped we’d be January 7th, just over 25%.

Given where the economy is rather than where the MSM pretends it is and that it is January both are understandable and to those who have kicked in (particularly subscribers), thanks much.

If however you have not & are both able and inclined I’d really appreciate it if you’d help us either close January strong or start February stronger by hitting DaTipJar.
