I pride myself on trying to understand the arguments of those that don’t agree with me, and encourage others to do the same. However, every once in a while I am so overwhelmed by the Orwellian double-speak, self-refuting logic, and inexplicable gaps in the Left’s and the ruling class’ line of thinking I need to take inventory of all the unanswered questions.

Today is one of those days.

How come those who think we need to follow the Gang of 8 over the cliff to get the Hispanic vote never spend any time discussing how to get those at least 7 million white voters that voted in 2008 but didn’t in 2012 back to the polls? Without those white voters, Romney could’ve done better with the Hispanic vote than even George W. Bush did, and he still would’ve lost.

The liberal media keeps asking why we’re suspicious of the “Gang of 8” plan and why we don’t trust Charles Schumer and John McCain. So I assume they would just automatically trust a sweeping policy proposal that Ted Cruz drew up in secret, right?

Why are some “conservatives” backing a plan the Heritage Foundation says will cost taxpayers $6.3 trillion and amount to little more than a Democrat Party voter drive?

How come when there’s a bombing we blame the bomber, but when there’s a shooting we blame the gun?

By threatening Christians who honor the great commission with potential court-martial, isn’t the Pentagon essentially telling Christian soldiers they don’t have access to the same freedoms they’re fighting for?

By threatening Christians who honor the great commission with potential court-martial, isn’t the Pentagon essentially asking Christian soldiers to be willing to die in opposition to what they believe?

If it’s true that the same arguments used against redefining marriage to include homosexual relationships were used to ban interracial dating, does that mean all the black people and black ministers that have voted for and supported marriage are themselves racists?

If I hate you simply because I disagree with you and your morality, does that mean you hate God if you disagree with Him?

If Obama is admitting Obamacare needs “streamlined” even before its fully implemented, then why didn’t he listen to those who warned him ahead of time this would be a disaster? What’s so open-minded about doggedly pursuing your agenda even when it’s bound to fail?

Why is it called “the Affordable Healthcare Act” when even the Associated Press admits Obamacare costs at least $200 billion more than originally estimated even before it’s implemented, and that individual insurance rates will climb as high as 32%?
