We see Democrats driving around with their snarky bumper stickers, "Had Enough?" and think to ourselves: "Yes, we've had enough of the lies. We've had enough of the assault on traditional values and the sanctity of life. We've had enough of tearing America down. We've had enough of the mainstream media being in the tank for Democrats and Barack Obama -- then shamelessly denying it. We've had enough of Bush Derangement syndrome. We've had enough of their resistance to taking the terrorist threat seriously. We've had enough of the class and race warfare that threaten the social fabric of our society and the economic underpinnings of this nation. We've had enough false allegations of voter intimidation from Democrats who turn right around and threaten criminal prosecution against those who criticize their presidential candidate. We've had enough of liberal candidates deceitfully denying their liberalism. We've had enough of incendiary charges of racism against Republicans such as Sarah Palin for daring to suggest that Barack Obama doesn't see 'America like you and I see America.'"
I don't know about you, but I'm not particularly interested in some bipartisan love fest in which Joe Biden tells us he loves John McCain or John McCain lavishes high praise on global warming fearmonger Al Gore.
The future of this nation is on the line in November, and I don't believe our destiny depends on whether Washington politicians demonstrate collegiality. Isn't it more important that they stand on principle?
We can only hope that more Republican politicians will follow Sarah Palin's valiant lead in defending the traditional values and principles shared by the less than vociferous center-right majority in this nation.
They must quit knuckling under to the opportunistic demonization of achievement, profit and free-market forces. They must resist the patronizing pandering to "the middle class." They must oppose environmental Stalinists, who will destroy our way of life and our economy based on false, sensationalized and disputed science and who demonize anyone who challenges their orthodoxy. They must call down those who insist on pooh-poohing the terrorist threat and downplaying the essential moral distinction between the forces of good and evil in the world. They must protect our borders despite the dishonest charges of racism and nativism. They must protect our Constitution from activist judges.
Now is not the time for conservative politicians to go wobbly, even if some conservative commentators are. It is the time to fight back -- to challenge the fundamental assumptions of liberalism and to underscore the threat it represents to this country.
So keep it up, Sarah, and maybe others will follow your courageous example.
