I follow a number of conservative blogs. Most of them are overwhelmed with Obama hate-mongering, but offer few solutions and almost never compare “head to head” how the establishment Republican candidates will benefit the country any more than Obama has. It’s almost like some since of duty to hate Obama by default. Statements without data and facts bother me and that is the conservative rhetoric around the blogosphere, it seems.
What I REALLY hate is that most of those same blogs criticize Ron Paul. He’s not to be trusted – I guess that’s what Fox News told them. People are suspicious of any “Republican” who advocates peace. What’s worse is that those same blogs and individuals almost always proclaim their love for the Tea Party. The fact is that Ron Paul is the godfather of the Tea Party. Now neo-conservatives have hijacked what was meant to be a movement based on logic and liberty. The word Tea Party isn’t something I can be proud of anymore, for the most part. The meaning has been consumed by worthless neo-conservative double-speak. “I want liberty – as long as I’m a white Christian, that is.”
A woman (Sarah Palin) that can barely name the 50 states has become the unofficial spokesperson. That disgusts me. It’s a slap in the face to anyone who has dedicated any amount of time and study to liberty. A quick Google search would inform the most causal politically interested individual that the establishment Republican candidates are not champions of liberty! Their voting record proves it. Still most self proclaimed republicans praise each them like good slaves.
Personally, I’m loyal to no party nor politician. I’m loyal to truth – whether truth is championed by a democrat or a republican is no concern to me. I won’t toss around hate speech nor false yet convincing appeals t0 emotion. Rather I’ll let the facts speak for themselves. I only hope people ignore their ego and become open minded enough to admit to themselves that their preconceived notions and beliefs about conservatism might be wrong. I have to remind myself to do the same thing everyday.
I love and cherish my fellow conservative bloggers, I just want us all to recognize the facts. Not falsehoods made up and accepted over time.
