Oh, there is a whole lotta wailing still goin’ on.
Post election finger pointing is tiresome after a second week of the rehash, rehashed. Many party wonks and hand wringing “conservatives” think the Republican Party must capitulate on the social issues (Natural marriage, abortion, euthanasia) in order to appeal to the handful of independents and the Hispanic block.
Balderdash! The social issues won the day for the Democrats. Democratic blogs and PACs, media pundits and such clearly crow that their social issues, not the economy, won the day.
Those “moderate” Republicans who think that the GOP had better adopt same-sex unions, euthanasia and abortion while they retain a fiscally conservative platform, need to rethink their game-plan. Such a move simply creates two Democrat parties: Democrat Light and Democrat. Trouble is, once the Republicans travel that path, they can kiss all hope of election good-bye. There are simply too many hard ideological Democrats who worship at the altar of State. The rest are receiving a major portion of their sustenance from the government– they are not interested in fiscal sobriety. They have no use for Democrat Light (formerly the GOP)
Here’s the real problem that few in office are willing to acknowledge:You cannot have a healthy economy in a nation where natural families are in decline.
Consider this statistic: Entrepreneurship and innovation is predominant among 25-45 year -old citizens. We have fewer 25-45 year -old people entering the workforce, sufficient to alarm the Bureau of Labor New ideas and risk taking do not generate in retirement communities. Some have put the estimate of economic loss from abortion at $45 TRILLION !
Nations in decline cannot repair an ailing economy.
Marxists and Socialists –our enemies–know this. Hence their agenda to destroy the moral codes that protect marriage and family, including sufficient births to people the nation generation after generation. When a people are “freed” from natural marriage and family, debt increases. A debauched culture pursues pleasure and immediate material excess rather than invest for the future (with far fewer babies born) to the detriment of the next generation, because–bluntly–they won’t have to pay the tab–your kids will be hung with the bill. Those who have no faith in the ideals of family, patriotism and the Judeo -Christian moral code that built Western Civilization, have zero scruples about saddling your children as their beast of burden. They frankly do not care what happens after their own death–it means nothing to them if the nation dies.
“But,” you may object, “there are plenty of Democrats with families who surely must care.” Maybe. We’ve all met those looney parents who teach their youngsters that baby seals are entitled to protection but baby humans are not. I do not doubt that some Democrat parents care for their children’s future in theory, as long as that future includes Hillary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi’s moral code: birth control pills and abortions for 12 year olds. For many on the left, the ideals of permissive sex, same-sex unions, abortion and euthanasia are more important than the chaotic decline such tenets bring to the coming generation. In short, these parents will offer up the future of their own children, fully confident that –some how — the coming age will be tolerant and peaceful–or else.
Else? Yes, Virginia, they will use the force of government to coerce this chaos on all–so much for tolerance. The intolerance of “progressives” toward Christians and others of traditional moral wisdom is gathering speed. Catholics and all citizens of good will and a stiff spine must jab right back against the growing claim that the GOP can only survive if it capitulates on the social issues.
What can you do? Contact your Republican elected officials-- state and national– and tell them the social issues matter to the base–Just say NO to Democrat Light.
