I had the rare but enlightening experience a numbers of months back to listen to a liberal talk show. I believe the fellows name was Tom Hartman. A caller made the comment that what Republicans do not realize is that Thomas Jefferson was the driving force behind the birth of the Democratic party. I wanted to, but did not, call in to remind that caller that the Democratic Party in Jefferson’s day bears absolutely no resemblance to today’s party of liberal idealogy. Case in point: Jefferson said, “To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” Today’s democratic party has mastered the doctrine of the dole as well as consistently holding to world views, most of which are in direct conflict with Jefferson’s political and personal views. I give regularly, VOLUNTARILY, to help the downtrodden and those gifts come both in the form of money as well as time. To take the fruit of my labor and distribute as a handout to pay for socially destructive government giveaways is, as Jefferson says, “sinful and tyrannical. True help for those who need it most has and will continue to come from the hearts of Americans everywhere who voluntarilly give so much to the poor and who recognize that giving money to the government to help the poor is like asking a hungry wolf to carry a steak dinner to Little Red Riding Hood. The Obama Government has become the monstrous enemy of the poor. I will never forget Obama’s words in his first election: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” If Republicans had any guts they would fundamentally transform America by refusing to change the debt ceiling. That, my friends, would bring about a transformation in America that would be one thousand times better than the one we have had thrust upon us by this inept, narcissistic community organizer.
