In 2010 we have fully entered a new era of politics that I call the Limbaugh-Obama, or LimBama period.
This era’s new mentality is neither Left nor Right wing. Instead it applies equally to both sides of the political spectrum,indeed all sides. It is the ability to purport to believe in republican democracy and the Constitution, while firmly believing that political perfection is only prevented by the “Opposition” being allowed to participate in the legislative process.
The Constitution is replaced (ideologically at least, for the WORDs “The Constitution” will still ring out when freedom is but a memory) by the simple rule:
WE do not HAVE to play “fair” because WE ARE THE GOOD GUYS!
The because part of this unwritten commandment comes in many forms in the minds of partisans:
We defend the downtrodden and repressed
We have God (Allah) in our hearts and you are fooled by Satan
We serve the long-term interest of Human Survival
We serve Mother Earth
Yada, yada, yada… it is all a bunch of self serving baloney from minds so lost in group think that they can’t SEE the surface of the swamp let alone know their common sense had drowned!
It all only has ONE ‘because’:
Because WE WANT THE POWER, though we prove by our methods that we do not deserve it, and will surely abuse it for our selfish personal goals.
