Partisanship is still
alive and doing well
"War is the continuation of politics by
other means," Von Klauschwitz said. Partisanship has been a part of American
politics for ages.
Whether it was the Federalists, Democrats,
Whigs or Republicans, they always seem to bump heads. We can argue all
issues but neither will convince the other
that there is a "right" way — it'll just result in many views destined
Why don't we examine some of these notorious
examples? For some time now, the liberal Democrats have labeled the Republican
Party as the "white man's party" and said
it doesn't care about poor and middle-class Americans.
Well, what has the Democratic Party done
to empower the middle class and minorities? The liberals just want the
latter to depend on
them for the duration of their lives.
Yet the Republican Party truly wants to help. This can be summed up by
the old saying, "Give a
man a fish to eat and he can survive another
day, teach him to fish and he can survive for a lifetime."
Why has our society become one of people
with their hands out when it was a Democratic president who coined the
"Ask not what your country can do for
you, but what you can do for your country"?
We have groups such as PETA (People for
the Ethical Treatment of Animals) who believe it's all right to blow up
a McDonald's or not
allow our firefighters water from a lake
nearby while fighting forest fires because some endangered species may
be put in danger.
When did human life become so cheap? How
can and do we justify the killing of babies in our country that was founded
nation under God"? Are souls not important?
Do we not care for the souls of those who cannot speak for themselves?
The Bible tells
us in Psalms that it's an "abomination"
and that God hates "hands that shed innocent blood." Yet we aren't supposed
to mention God
in our public schools, although we are
supposed to just accept and be indoctrinated with other religions. We are
supposed to be
apathetic to other religions that may
hate Christians. I am partisan and glad to say that I still know who God
is and that he is the one in
control of our country.
This is a country in which less than 10
percent of all crimes involving guns are committed by people who legally
own one. Those we
have to fear are the ones who buy a gun
off the street. It's impossible to go one day without hearing about an
attack on conservatives
by the left by a hypocrite like the "Reverend"
Jesse Jackson, Richard Gephart or even Tom Daschle. Why are they hypocrites?
easy: One counseled a president regarding
his affairs with a woman not his wife. Another was instrumental in bailing
out the airline
industry with government help as he coughed
at the Republicans for their so-called conspiracy with Enron. Enron contributed
to both the Democratic and Republican
parties and was in bed with Al Gore as well as George W. Bush. Where's
their share of the
