Selective Memory

September 14, 2009

We have a selective memory in this country. This is why we need to be reminded of a few things over and over.

Our nation is a republic and not a democracy. The founders knew in a pure democracy a small minority could drive the agenda for the whole nation.

For example despite the fact that most Americans believe in God we have to be careful not to offend the few who don’t. We forget the infamous phrase “Separation of church and state” is not even in the Constitution.

And just because of one isolated Supreme Court case every woman now has the right to kill off her preborn baby anytime she wants. A fact the woman involved in the case now deeply regrets.

So now even though most Americans have access to health care we have to create a giant new monster government program for the few who don’t. All that’s needed are few common sense solutions. These were the papers the Republicans were waving during the president’s lecture last week.

Meanwhile what about in 2005 when it wasn’t one congressman speaking out, it was almost half the chamber booing president Bush? No one said a word about that. Yet another case of selective memory.

    The line in the sand has been drawn. The field of battle has been chosen. The Obama Express will now be derailed. Time to disembark. Please gather what personal belongings you have left, lift up the safety bar and exit away from the left.
