WUI (Writing under the influence)

Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
On a warm autumn day in 1986, while enjoying beer with my college buddies,
I decided to join my new homeland.

I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
Liberalism, political-correctness, multiculturalism and moral equivalence
are destroying it.

Sure, I'm sorry that McCainPalin didn't win. But I fear that had he won, there would have been riots as promised and that McCain's presidency would have been opposed as much as Bush's. We are in the situation we are in mostly because since 2000 a big chunk of the population simply didn't accept Bush as their president the same way now most Republicans accept Obama.

So I'm sorry but I'm also glad. I'm glad because I don't have to defend Bush anymore. In fact, I may now indulge from time to time in some criticism of Obama. Hatred? No. That's the left's domain. We provide constructive criticism and opposition. We also support the right decisions. The left opposes everything if not in power. It will be interesting to watch what happens in Iraq now that they own it. Since we have won, they will for sure claim the credit.

I'm also very proud of being Republican. All day today the only thing I've heard from main-stream Republicans was the following questions: What did we do wrong? What can we do to convince the voters ours are better ideas?

There were no accusations of voter fraud changing the outcome (yes, we know ACORN has caused a lot of voter fraud but we know already that if we want to win it can't be by 70,000 votes in Ohio) or accusations that we lost because the media were biased (they were, but we had overcome this before.)

Yeah, he and his allies in the congress may put this country through hell but as it has happened before, Republicans eventually will bring it back. The problem is that after we come back we are never able to fully clean the house. And the reason is very simple, the real world is a very dangerous place and to protect the US from our enemies, Republicans compromise with Democrats: let us fight this battle and we will give you all the handouts you need to stay in power. Reagan did it when he fought the Soviets, Bush did it when he fought Muslim extremists.

But maybe they didn't have to do this and maybe future Republican presidents can learn something from these examples and won't repeat the same mistakes.

As John Derbyshire of the Corner says today:

"What did it all get us, those 8 years of pandering and spending? If GWB had turned his face against new entitlements, closed the borders, deported the illegals, held the line on calls to loosen mortgage-lending standards, starved the Department of Education, and declined those invitations to mosque functions, would the GOP be in any worse shape now?"

He is right. Being nice gets us nothing.

BTW, Kulongoski says Republicans should be more moderate. There is no Republican left in the Northeast because they were moderate. Kulongoski knows exactly what he is doing: if all Republicans turn more moderate, we will have Democrats running everything in a generation.

BTW, nobody will be able to say racist and homophobe in the same sentence. What happened in California is monumental. The whites rejected the ban, yet it was overwhelmingly approved by blacks and to some extend by Latinos.

Lastly, this is still a very conservative (i.e. normal) country. California has become the 30th state to reiterate what marriage really means. It was easy because one doesn't need media to tell him how to vote. A normal person knows it instinctively. The problem is that since FDR screwed up economy while pretending he was trying to save it, the left has been trying to convince us that his polices were good for economy.

For example, today, they have managed to convince a lot of people that the financial meltdown was somehow caused by lack of regulation. Unfortunately, these people can't know any better because economics is not an easy subject for many. And the media don't help. The public schools don't want to help. They relay on uninformed voters to maintain their power. This is why they are now talking about the fairness doctrine.

Oh, and affirmative action is over, right?

Comments:
Three men sat in a small boat. The man on the left sat on the gunwale and the boat began to list. He leaned further and further over the side until the boat threatened to capsize. The man in the bow, who was by the way the respected editor of a large national newspaper and therefore completely impartial, sized up the situation and advised the man on the right to move to the center.
