I would suggest that a problem with the left is that they have few core values. We on the right know what we want: individual responsibility; less government; government centered in the individual, not a centralized beauracracy; adherence to the Constitution; a strong defense. There are more, but you can see where I’m going with this. But they are just against that, but have nothing that they are really for (unless it is for murdering unborn children and those who are too helpless to take care of themselves). But with the field wide open as to what to be for, they have no center around which they can coalesce.

And this is a good thing.

Interesting, was at a Tea Party meeting last night where the discussion was centered on the very issue of what exactly “they” believe.

The consensus was the same, they believe in nothing and that changes daily depending on the winds. Oh, excuse me, that was a RINO definition, the leftists do believe that man is destroying the planet and that anything conservative or Christian is part of the problem.

The solution is obvious, reduce mans numbers in any way possible. They are all “for” world government, which will assist along with the UN in controlling evil man. The vehicle for achieving the goal of controlling man has been global warming, with cap and trade as the destroyer of the capitalist economy.

Well, they are also universal in the desire to restrict speech, and that all most be dependent on officers of the state for personal protection.

Theodore Roosevelt famously asserted that
"It is not the critic who counts . . . the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena . . . who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds . . . 
Leftism is cheap talk, criticism and second guessing of the successful by those who will not undertake to expose themselves to the posssibility of second guessing by actually taking on any responsibility to actually get things done.

When their own is in power, suddenly criticism is not the highest form of patriotism. To the contrary, only good intentions can matter. Results must be irrelevant.
