Why are Liberal Democrats obsessed with power? Democrats have the same problem all of us have. Pride. We all want to be God. We all want to believe we are wonderful and worshiped. To the point of worship, we all crave to be affirmed in who we are. Even the best of us.
BENJAMIN FRANKLIN ON PRIDE AND HUMILITY is one of the best posts I have prepared. Here we consider quotes from Benjamin Franklin and the Bible. Franklin laughs at himself, on his struggle with pride. Isaiah ponders the failure of Lucifer and his fall from grace. Perhaps no one except God escapes the temptations of pride.
How does pride affect our political system? We each have the temptation to make government about me. What do I want? Since politicians are sales people, they know that. So they make promises that tempt us, and at first their promises sound reasonable. Soon, however, as we succumb to the temptations of sin, politicians and their promises become more and more outrageous. Consider the Democrat’s obsession with sex. Consider the growing absurdity.
- Marriage use to be the way we each committed ourselves to the happiness of another person of the opposite sex. Ideally, that person either was or became someone we loved.
- Then marriage started to change. Marriage started to become about choosing the “right person”, someone who could make “me” happy.
- Without commitment, long marriages began to become “unrealistic”. So politicians started winning elections by promising to make divorce easy. Thus, marriage became serial monogamy.
- Sexual restraint, because sex is about making “me” happy, become passe’ for many of us. So politicians started winning elections by promising to make abortion easy.
- For the sake of “me”, some continued still further in their abandonment of sexual restraint. Happy to please, politicians started promising same-sex marriage, government financed sex change operations, and government-funded contraceptives and abortions.
- So now, supposedly to make our children behave still more smartly about sex, politicians provide our children a free sex education (see How federally funded sex education sexualizes schoolchildren (washingtontimes.com)).
Anything new here? Afraid not. News is full of it. The news even tells us it is about pride. Google the phrase “gay pride”. The more aberrant, ridiculous, and sinful our behavior the more obsessed we can become trying to justify it and become proud of it. So it can be quite delightful when fast-talking, persuasive, shameless politicians tell us that there is nothing wrong with our behavior, that we too can be shameless. In fact, don’t we have the “right” to expect our fellow citizens to shower us with praise and reassurance, even as we lie on our deathbed dying from some sexually transmitted disease?
How is the Liberal Democrat’s obsession with sex and power affecting our election this year? If you live in House District 13, that should be obvious. Between Delegate Bob Marshall and Danica Roem, we have choice between two starkly contrasting candidates. Of course, since the news media is so partisan, they would like us to ignore the obvious. So their reports have become more and more false. Consider this absurd line from The Washington Post.
Until now, the statehouse race between Democrat Danica Roem and Del. Robert G. Marshall (R-Prince William) has focused mostly on traffic congestion and other local issues, even as the historic nature of Roem’s candidacy has brought her waves of publicity and donations from across the country. (from here)
The “historic nature of Roem’s candidacy” has been front and center from the get go. The “historic nature of Roem’s candidacy” has been the basis for his fundraising. Roem’s solutions for traffic congestion are just plain ignorant. Even if he is elected, he cannot deliver on his promises to fix traffic congestion on Route 28 (which Delegate Bob Marshall has explained in detail). Almost nobody has given Roem money because of traffic congestion and other local issues, and except to the most uniformed and highly biased, it is silly to suggest otherwise. Unfortunately, obvious absurdity does not stop The Washington Post from spreading nonsense.
How can we turn back Liberal Democrats in their quest for sex and power? How can we can prevent politicians who lack restraint from corrupting children? Consider the obvious. Nobody with any sense trust politicians. Yet, because we have listened to and given into their temptations, a “free” education in this case, we have put such people in charge of the education of our children.
Think about it. Nobody trusts politicians. So we put them in charge of educating children? How stupid is that?
After winning re-election by defeating Republican opponent Mitt Romney, Obama was sworn in for a second term in 2013. During his second term, Obama promoted inclusiveness for LGBT Americans, with his administration filing briefs that urged the Supreme Court to strike down same-sex marriage bans as unconstitutional (United States v. Windsor and Obergefell v. Hodges). (from here)
In many respects President Donald Trump has already proven he has much more respect for the Constitution than Obama. Nevertheless, during Trump’s campaign for the presidency, the news media, engineering an October surprise, provided a recording of Trump saying things about women he never should have said. Therefore, even the men who are supposed to be our best politicians have not proven to be the sort of men most of us would eagerly choose to trust with our children. Nevertheless, politicians choose the people who run our schools, and politicians set the policies that decide what our children will learn and when they will learn it.
Is Danica Roem the sort we want setting policies for Virginia’s schools? Roem is getting the usual softball treatment from the news media. However, to give him credit, Roem did allow Larry O”Connor to interview him (see Danica Roem on The Larry O’Connor Show). Since then Roem’s answers to O’Connor’s questions have provided ammunition for his opponents. Roem’s answers made it obvious that he would be happy to introduce our children to the issues of transgenderism. That includes making transgenderism part of the curriculum starting as early as kindergarten (17 minutes and 15 seconds into the interview).
