Who would've thought America could become a metro-sexual, European-like, squishy nation of whiners and dependents? That's a little harsh, but I have a cold and don't feel well. Actually, we need a rally of the apolitical who can revive this country from the mediocrity to which it now aspires. Enough with the global warming hysteria, the foreign aid, the military bases protecting capable countries and the wars against scag dealers and oil-pimps.
There are too many drama queens on the global stage. When Barney Frank, Harry Reid, Hank Paulson and Ben Bernanke are power symbols, you know we've entered the theater of the absurd. When a community organizer and slick Chicago politician plays the role of Abe Lincoln doing Gandhi in a play called The New Deal and I'll Raise You a Trillion, the absurdity goes to something beyond weird that's difficult to fathom without peyote and a pint of tequila.
After coming off 8 years of Bush and co. expanding the government and stupidity to historical levels, only to then expand it to idiotic levels with incompetence as common as cockroaches in a crack house, it's time to call time-out. Even the attempt at Russian-style propaganda is like a particularly bad B-movie - Chris Matthews is as believeable as Pee-Wee Herman in the lead role of a Wild One remake.
America doesn't do statism very convincingly -- a collective "boo" would turn them all into stalwart Jeffersons overnight. Until they imprison Rush Limbaugh and send P.J. O'Rourke to Alaska they can't be taken seriously. Perhaps it's out of American politeness and civil order that we give them rope to hang themselves, a courteous standing back just to give the benefit of the doubt in a bad economy. We're open-minded afterall, and we elected them, so the proper thing is to let them try. Hell, most Americans weren't even paying attention -- it's just polticians doing their stupid act -- they've done what?
The statists might just wake up this sleeping giant if they cross more lines. Politicizing the heart of the U.S. is not going to bring tree-hugging and electric cars to Cut and Shoot, Texas. L.A., New York and Boston have heard nothing but their own voices so long they'll think we've had an invasion. No, the revolution won't be led by intellectuals quoting Alexis de Tocqueville -- it'll be millions of simple people who've had enough, whose economic understanding is that if you're broke quit spending, and, by the way, get the hell out of my business and quit wasting my money. It's a more basic, uncomplicated desire for freedom and non-interference that'll be awakened with very little nuance.
The MSM, universities and Washington D.C. have framed Americans as unfortunate hoi polloi on the government take -- they have no idea what a riled, over-regulated heartland would look like. Politicians want stimulus? They'll get stimulus -- after a swift kick in the ass and good heave-ho.
