To return the GOP campaign to "that theme" is a dangerous and less-than-honest concession to what might appear to be individual voters who "like" the President. The future liberty "of millions yet unborn" is at stake, and Republicans are going with a "nice guy" theme to protect that 200+-year accomplishment?
Romney must not cast himself as naive enough to concede "likeability" to be a favorable quality of a person whose mask has slipped in recent times, revealing a calculating but smiling villain who systematically has led the charge to "fundamentally transform" and "change" America, using Executive Orders to accomplish what cannot be accomplished under the Constitution's strict limits on his power.
Romney said this weekend that he would take his father's advice to "be bold."
Now is the time for the boldness required to call Americans to recognize tyranny "in whatever forms it may appear," to confront tyranny, and to choose the Creator-endowed liberty protected by the specific limits of the Constitution.
In 1775, Edmund Burke said of the American colonists and their "spirit of liberty":
"In other countries, the people, more simple, and of a less mercurial cast, judge of an ill principle in government only by an actual grievance; here they anticipate the evil, and judge of the pressure of the grievance by the badness of the principle. They augur misgovernment at a distance; and snuff the approach of tyranny in every tainted breeze." - Edmund Burke "Speech on Conciliation . . ."
Those colonists, in 1775, though, had leaders whose passion for liberty equaled or surpassed that of their fellow colonists, and one of them authored a Declaration of Independence which didn't call King George a "nice guy" who just was uninformed. That writer (Thomas Jefferson), who later became a President, specified King George's actions which violated the Creator-endowed rights and liberties of "the People" who, in turn, wrote a Constitution 11 years later to prohibit any President or other elected representative of "the People" in America from ever laying such a regulatory and taxation burden on them.
Now, that was "bold," Mr. Romney!
"Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it." - John Adams, Letter to Abigail Adams, 1777
Just hope there are enough citizens out there who understand what's at stake here.
We have the same choice which faced the colonists in 1776:
Liberty for ourselves and future generations
Slavery to coercive government power
This is the choice.
So-called "progressives" may frame the debate differently, they may use clever semantics to disguise and cloak the kind of "change" they advocate, and some may even fool themselves into believing that what they advocate is right.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C. S. Lewis
In the end, however, their philosophy relies on coercive power by some imperfect human beings over other likewise imperfect beings.
The ideas of 1776 and 1787 were based on another powerful idea.
The same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe, the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.- (John F. Kennedy - 1961 Inaugural)
"Ideas have consequences." - Weaver
One idea led to freedom, opportunity, productivity and plenty for more people than ever had been experienced in the history of civilization. That idea relied upon a Creator-people-government arrangement.
The "other" idea has failed in every society in which it has been implemented, because it relies on a government-over-people arrangement.
"Tyranny is a poor provider. It knows neither how to accumulate, nor how to extract." -Edmund Burke
GOOD JOB Sean giving this classic rant!
Anyone on here?
Giant PING List.
My future Senator, John “Long tall drink of water” Thune, ambushed by Neal Cavuto, who is just cute as a bugs ear.
Hannity, do us a favor and stop letting that racist IDIOT Juan “Token” Williams on your show.
He’s beyond stupid and I have to turn the radio off while he’s on.
