If Republicans hope to rescue America from socialist misery they must operate on the level of fundamentals. They must say to Americans, and especially to Democrats: "We are not going to sell our souls for well-intended programs that dreamers imagine government would do well to provide. The road to hell is paved with good intentions."

Fundamental #1: Nothing is free. Somewhere, sometime, in some place, someone must pay.

Fundamental #2: Forcing men and women (via taxation or confiscation or government-induced inflation) to pay for something they do not voluntarily donate enough to pay for; forcing people to forfeit their livelihood (and in some cases their very lives) is ... human sacrifice, the very height of immorality.

Fundamental #3: If free men and women do not voluntarily donate enough to pay for something, their government has no business attempting it.

When Republicans look at devastating federal and state deficits and debt, they appropriately say to voters: "We must cut spending." Democrats then, self-righteously standing on their good intentions, sneer: "Tell us what specific programs you would eliminate." If there were a truly gutsy Republican, his or her answer would be: "We need to scrap all government programs, all government bureaucracies, all government rules and regulations and decrees and laws ... and start over again."

But whoever heard of a truly gutsy Republican? Republicans are famous for wishy-washy thinking and wishy-washy cave-ins, right? Nonetheless, Republicans have been given one more chance to look inside themselves and find at least a beginning twinge of courage, enough for them to convey clearly to Democrats: "Stop! Your good intentions have brought us nothing but pain. We must go back to fundamentals."

Americans everywhere are struggling and suffering while they wait for a Republican leader who will say, "To hell with my personal survival, my personal career and fortunes ... the only thing important to me is the survival and prosperity of every American."  So far only two Republicans are showing glimpses of that kind of courage ... Sarah Palin and Mike Pence. We'll have to wait and see if others join them.


To better understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
