Posted on 06/11/2009 5:47:18 PM PDT by The Ignorant Fisherman
In light of the present conditions plaguing our country and what seems to be the disintegration of the Republican Party, Conservatives have been on suicide alert - all the way from the top to the bottom.
As well as being ostracized from their own party, Conservatives have been labeled and slandered by the Democratic Left and its powerful Mainstream Media allies. For their ideals of moral accountability and responsibility, Conservatives are also despised by the socially dependent masses.
In the midst of the current crisis or rather, crises - and lack of conservative leadership, Rush Limbaugh has been appointed by the masses of exiled conservatives as their new and fearless leader.
Conservatives owe a lot to Limbaugh (and others in the Alternative Media) for their steadfastness to conservative ideals and promotion of moral ideologies. Until the present, these ideals have made America what it historically has been: a great nation and example to the world. The reality at hand though is that conservative principles and ideals are a dead corpse in Washington D.C. and our state bureaucracies.
The social climate has moved so far to the left such that the social ramifications and consequences have passed the point of no return. All that remains for the Conservative today is a delusional optimism (i.e., an empty dream) which believes that one day in America all will be again as it was in the days of Reagan and prosperous, halcyon times of the past.

I’ve been studying Jeremiah recently. History repeats itself. And yes, Western Culture has begun the end stages of depravity and collapse. Sometimes it’s very hard to remember that the victory is already won.
WOW! Spot ON.
“Conservatism is the best ideology for a healthy society and for restraining the unbridled passions of the human heart, for exercising human freedoms with responsibility and accountability to all.
Actually, conservative principles come from the Biblical teachings and absolutes (both spiritual and natural) of Almighty God, the God of Israel.
This is the reason that, in the almost 400 years of our countrys history, we have prospered and become the greatest nation on the face of the earth. God has truly shed His grace on thee (us, the USA).”
Thanks. Good site, and great post.
“Having faith in Almighty God (Mark 11:22) and a healthy, Biblical optimism based on reality is the only sure hope for the Conservative today. The only true optimist is a Biblical realist.”
I don't know about this author, but I AM optimistic. The Democrats and their lapdog MSM has spooked folks by trying to get all their goodies pushed through Congress in this next year. They know that this is likely the best chance they'll have, with majorities in both Houses of Congress and the Fascist in the White House.
Unfortunately, for them, their support in 2008 was a mile wide and an inch deep, and some of the new Dems were conservatives recruited by Rahm Emmanuel to pick off some historically Republican districts. But even with the majority, they're still meeting opposition, because even with the Republicans in the minority, there are enough old and new conservative Democrats to hold up some of the more egregious legislation.
Can't wait to see what the Congressional elections of 2010 bring.
