So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

In a Democracy, The People Get the Government They Deserve (Part 2)

There will be plenty of time to do the forensics on how this happened.  Decades even.  But here is what happened.

The American people, often cited as valuing bi-partisan cooperation, re-elected the man universally recognized as the most polarizing President ever.

The American people, often characterized as naturally conservative fiscally, re-elected the man who promised to cut the deficit in half, yet increased it by more than 6 trillion dollars.

The American people, often characterized as naturally liberal socially, re-elected the man who delivered on his promise to subsidize Sandra Fluke's $9 a month contraceptive bill.  OK, maybe that part does make some sense.

The American people, often held up as an industrious folk, re-elected the man with the worst economic record since the Great Depression.  These so-called "industrious" people doubled down on the aptly lampooned Food Stamp President.

The American people, often described as possessing high standards for duty and responsibility, re-elected a President with a well documented record of irresponsibility that includes not even bothering to pass a federal budget three years running.

The American people, often portrayed as valuing truth and transparency, re-elected the President responsible for the Fast and Furious scandal, and who has been dodging and weaving for sixty days about just what the hell happened in Benghazi to cause the first death of an American Ambassador since 1979.

The American people, often lionized as benevolent, voted in a majority for the candidate that asked for their vote for "revenge" over the candidate that asked for their vote "for love of country."

It has never been more true than today ... In a democracy, the people get the government they deserve.

Update 12:40 pm

Small correction in detail to the original post.  Candidate Empty Suit promised to cut the deficit in half.  President Empty Suit increased the debt by six trillion.  He accomplished this with trillion dollar to trillion dollar and a half deficits each year in office.  Maybe my kids will read this and think of me when they are paying the bill.

Update 11/8/2012

Yep, why not try running an unapologetic and articulate conservative next time?  For the first time since Reagan.  Memo to Establishment GOP: even the country club dining room should be able to see RINOs can't beat the small minded race / gender / class warfare the Democrats have honed down to a filthy edge.  You take care of the country club dining room and the grass roots conservative TEA Party patriots will cover everything else.  Deal?
