In 2010, their Pledge to America won many State level elections and a majority in the House of Representatives but still, they have done nothing. They promise to reclaim America with less Government, touting how they will bring jobs; but still, they have done nothing but criticize and defame our President and his fellows. They promise to bring family values and ethics back to Washington but they have only exacerbated the divide between our legislative bodies and We the People while doing nothing about our troubles.
After the HHS mandate had reached every corner of the American Political Maze and the initial objections began to lose their impact on naive voters, the Republican Party shifted their argument from an objection to contraceptives and abortion pills to as in the case of Santorum, projecting the image of the French Revolution and Guillotines for all if Obama is allowed to prevail. This deluded rhetoric is not only deeply seeped in ire, it is downright absurd to the point of phantasmagorical.
Common Sense by Thomas Paine has in the past, been commended by people like Glenn Beck to represent the path we should take in America but the premise of the book has little resemblance to the attacks against Obama, Democrats and Liberals, alike regarding religion. Paine’s states, “Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our happiness POSITIVELY by uniting our affections, the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first is a patron, the last a punisher.“ Which side of this statement are right wing politicians and their followers on? Are they uniting our affections or restraining our vices? Are they encouraging intercourse (a term once used to mean interposition, not a sexual act) or creating distinctions? They claim to represent small government as in Paine's position but recently, only embody the antithesis of it.
