Oh and if you're gonna get me some beers that'd be great, just remember to get some for my friends... they'll pay..
And to clarify its things like.. (this)
that I find annoying. Anything west of your boots is some socalist/marxist/big red attack on family values and character and morals and such...
I'll try to keep to the matter at hand.
Many things are also inter-related.
Regarding marxism and socialism...
I'm trying to stem the tide of that which I interpret history as having shown to be mostly destructive. Some things may be appropriate for socialism, but they are the exception to the rule.
Obama has been soaking up Marxist influences like a sponge his whole life and it shows, especially regarding (but not limited to) the redistribution of wealth and class envy... You cannot elevate the poor and unproductive on the backs of the successful and productive. History validates that. Doesn't it? And of course I'm not advocating heartlessness. Some deserve help. Some need help.
But the victimhood mentality... The entitlement mentality... Very destructive.
As the democrats are increasingly beholden to the hard left and that left presses in, I press back.
Education, the old media, entertainment...
The more entrenched the left has become there, the more the results compel more of us to push back.
Some values and morals and traditions are worth conserving.
One should not throw out the baby with the bath water.
