AsideLife is a journey, and this is my next leg.
TruthTentatively, I’m going to start publishing my blog again, but I’ve learned quite a bit since I hung up my blogging tools and went back into private industry. The last time I posted was July 24, 2007. This was before our grand election and anointing of Barrack. As you know, I was aware at that time that Barrack could win. I had settled on the wimpy McCain and kept on defending George W. Bush, at least for his Iraq War policy.
So much has happened since then. I went back to being a technical writer for a successful defense industry firm. I did so well I raised the company’s bottom line substantially and got promoted. However, my heart always remains with politics. By the way, I also got accepted into Mensa this year.
My blog was hugely popular, and won awards, but next time I want monetize it. I am proud of this body of work.
Let me give my first short observations of Barrack and of the Republican Party at present. Barrack gave a good impression at first. He was smooth, affable, poised. He did some things I’d have liked him to do. Like continue the surge in Iraq. On the other hand, he is pushing, as I believed he would, for his vision of cradle-to-grave government intervention in our lives, which I am opposed to. He is also spending us into the poorhouse. He could have effected the same things by introducing the flat tax, or any number of truly conservative ideas, that would have roared the economy. Instead, he has created a gigantic welfare state. He is also weak on defense in a general sense.
The Republicans, though, are a sorry mess too. They not only have abandoned their conservative principles, they have lost sight that they need a drastic outreach program to Blacks, Latinos, the young, the poor, the media, Hollywood, the hipsters, and the Internet crowd. Religious conservatism is established, but the Repubs also need to broaden the base to include conservatives who concentrate mostly on the economy and defense.
Don’t get me wrong. Schwarzenegger, in my opinion, is a disgrace. So is McCain. They are not conservatives.
Basically, what I want, Ladies and Gentlemen, is John F. Kennedy. A cool, hip, sexy conservative who can inspire the country to his brand of conservatism. Yes, you heard me right, Kennedy was conservative. Kennedy was a conservative both on the economy and on defense. The Dems have strayed far from this now, into socialism, communism, and fascism. Where are you, the next John F. Kennedy, or Regan? We need you now.
Another complaint I have about the Repubs is that they are wimps. The left is vicious, with James Carvell, Keith Olberman, and Chris Matthews, Arianna Huffington, and the Daily Kos, for starters, who all get thrills up and down their legs whenever they see Obama. And the Repubs? They are ever so nice. The sweet, wimpy George W. Bush, who never stood up for himself, turning the other cheek. The nice, wimpy Mitt Romney who is the cute little Mormon who never says an unkind word. Compare this with Carvell, Dean, Emmanuel, Pelosi, Huffington, and the rest of the vicious left. We need fighters and attack dogs, who aren’t intimidated by being called radicals, racists, sexists, and homophobes. Hannity, Limbaugh, Levin, Prager, and Elder are a good start. But we need counterparts too for the vicious Alex Baldwan, the stupid Sean Penn, the vapid Michael Moore, and the empty-headed Hollywood left.
We need conservative Madonna’s and Barry Manilow’s.
That’s my job. I’m going to flush them out of hiding, and deliver them to the world. You watch me.
