What Happened?

The Tea Party did a lot to give the Republicans some spine. That's why the progressives and their media allies hate them so much. Now that establishment Republicans are mostly back in control, we voters have to hold their feet to the fire. They must do three things: 1> block amnesty for illegals by any means necessary 2> Censure Obama if he does not come to Congress requesting a new authorization for use of Force in Iraq 3> Replace Obamacare entirely These items are popular and will put Obama and the Democrats on defense. It's hard to think about new progressive projects when you have to defend turf you have already won. We have to look to Ronald Reagan's seemingly small victory in Grenada which showed the world that communism is not inevitable anywhere. Rolling back Obamacare would serve the same purpose in wiping the smirk off Krugman's face.
Note to conservatives: any Republican, even if he isn't your first choice, is better than any Democrat. We live in a two party system and thankfully so. We do not have a parliamentary system that can accommodate multiple parties each holding a few seats. Under such a system, you get your candidate elected, but they then have to join a coalition and make compromises. Compromise is a fact of life in politics. The question is: do you want to compromise your principles more with a Democrat Senate, or less with a Republican Senate?

Why Do Liberals Love Obama Anyway?

Agree. From Rousseau to Marx to Lenin to Mao to the American Progressives, leftist ideology requires state power to achieve its utopian ends.

The New Left of the 1960's - as much as the Old Left - has always worshipped power. Their governing philosophy is based on coercion and force so how can it be otherwise? In fact the centurions who run our government, our academic institutions, our media are the New leftists of the 1960's all grown up. They aren't going to speak truth to power because they ARE the power.

Liberal Jews are liberals first and Jews as an afterthought. No different than liberal Christians pushing "liberation theology" - just socialism under the guise of Christianity. For most secular Jews in America, Judaism is just the Democratic Party platform plus a few holidays with God removed. For them gay rights and abortion are more important to defend than the survival of Israel - or the United States. The left serves as a substitute religion for many people in the West. .
