Going Left to Get Right Doesn’t Work in Politics November 16, 2015

I have long said that no one gets to live in the world they grew up in, change moves too fast to allow for that. However our governing elite and their indoctrinated followers seem dedicated to the proposition that we shouldn’t even get to live under the same rules or in the same culture.

Taking a look at a few things and how they have been upended and are now used to facilitate the transformation of America.

The Court and Congress:

The Supreme Court can reverse itself at any time. Today it can deliberate and decide the Constitution says green is green and tomorrow they can deliberate and say green is yellow. It gives our Constitution a fluid quality that matches perfectly with the Progressive advocates of a living document. In other words in our system as it has evolved (or progressed) the Constitution isn’t written in stone it is written in sand.

Or without re-interpreting themselves they can re-interpret Congress to declare constitutional what is clearly unconstitutional. The penalties in Obamacare were said by Congress not to be taxes so that it could pass the law, since the Senate cannot originate tax laws.   Then the Supreme Court declared the penalties to be taxes to declare the law constitutional. Which should make the law unconstitutional on its face since all tax laws must begin in the House and this law was written in the Senate using slight-of-hand to pretend it started in the house.

Currently a case is making its way to the Supreme Court saying that Obamacare is unconstitutional on the origination of tax clause. Let’s see how the Justices contort themselves to find the law constitutional this time.

Academia:

We have reached a point where our best and brightest at colleges across the country are actually demonstrating to limit free speech as they express their aggressively progressive ideals by demanding protection from microaggressions such someone expressing ideas that conflict with their indoctrination. College used to be a place where conflicting ideas came to compete in the marketplace of thought. Now it is a place where a rigid conformity to the party-line is choking out everything that does not salute the upside down flag of Transformed America.

How did we get here? So many I talk to disagree with what the government party is doing to transform America yet they continue to vote for those who are leading the charge. They fail to see how the very problems they complain about have been caused by the programs of the people they vote for. It always amazes me how many people think right, talk right, live right and vote left. In other words as opposed to what is sometimes necessary when driving on congested streets going left to get right doesn’t work in politics.

typo alert: Academia …protection from microaggressions such [AS] someone…

It is demoralizing to see the truth so clearly laid out, revealed, by essays such as this, but find that it has no impact on the guilty, -those guilty of collaboration or indifference. We’ve all grown up thinking that when the light shines and reveals the truth, things will change because it will be accepted and acted on, and yet that doesn’t happen more often that it does.

I wish that you, and all others, would not make this sort of disassociated statement which lacks the context that makes it make sense, which is the one form of thought is being pushed out in favor of another. It should be worded to reveal the unspoken truth, as in:

“College used to be a place where conflicting PROGRESSIVE ideas came to compete in the marketplace of TRADITION AMERICAN thought.”
As a historian, you would do well to chronicle somehow for us the shift from the openness of “modern” thinking to the closing of the academic mind and its rejection of competing political-social views.
We need to see when and where and how the treasonous shift took place; at what meetings, due to what votes, due to what demographic shifts, due to whose wealthy influence, due to what strategy?
