WITH REPUBLICANS LIKE THESE, WHO NEEDS DEMOCRATS?





By Pastor Chuck Baldwin

May 4, 2005

NewsWithViews.com

My friend Howard Phillips recently wrote a column outlining the philosophy and historical track record of the Republican Party since George W. Bush became President. Sad to say, even a cursory review of this record reveals the fact that the Republican Party in Washington, D.C., has become little more than a carbon copy of the Democratic Party.

Phillips writes, "Sadly, the GOP's elected and appointed officials conform themselves almost without exception to that which Mr. Bush espouses, including:

a. an expanded Federal role in education,

b. record setting subsidies for pro-abortion and pro-homosexual organizations,

c. increased funding for the United Nations,

d. the attempted extension of Bill Clinton's assault weapons ban (blocked in Congress),

e. social Security benefits for illegal aliens who have returned to Mexico,

f. the ongoing reduction of the U.S. Navy (which now stands at 289 ships, compared to 600 under Ronald Reagan),

g. amnesty for illegal aliens,

h. nominees for the Federal judiciary and the Office of Attorney General who espouse the doctrine that Roe v. Wade is 'settled law',

i. support for Food and Drug Administration policies approving the abortion 'pill', RU-486, which has been used to kill scores of thousands of unborn children,

j. overturning Ronald Reagan's decision to withdraw from UNESCO,

k. increased funding for the National Endowment for the Arts,

l. multi-billion dollar support for the Federal Legal Services Corporation and its 25,000 left-wing legal activists,

m. murder-abetting assistance to the Communist government in Angola,

n. historically high multi-trillion dollar fiscal deficits and trade deficits,

o. a multi-trillion dollar Medicare entitlement program,

p. a $20 million 'New Freedom' program to evaluate the mental health of 53 million students in the government schools.

q. enactment of the McCain-Feingold campaign regulation law which criminalizes free speech,

r. support for the U.N. Law of the Sea Treaty (UNLOST) which President Reagan rejected,

s. endorsement of homosexual 'civil unions',

t. promotion of FTAA, NAFTA, CAFTA, and the WTO,

u. a too broadly drawn Patriot Act with its outrageous 'sneak and peek' provisions,


and many more things, a significant proportion of which would have been blocked by a Republican Congress had a Democrat President proposed them."



Of course, most conservatives have chosen to ignore or even deny these facts. The only answer they seem to come up with is, "Think how bad it would be if Democrats were in charge." However, with Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?

Comment: whats the Difference? Both Sides are doing the same thing, How many DECADES does it take for the idiot American people to understand we are being double teamed, we have Socialist to the right and Communists to the left.

Where are the Conservatives? Not in the Bush administration. Conservatives today (and I mean real Conservatives, not donkeys in elephant suits) fall into 2 groups:

1) Those who have left the party, such as myself.

2) Those whose only reason to remain in the party is to try and take it back from the "crazies in the basement" who have taken it over.

It is fact that the strategic part of Neoconservatism stems from a form of Trotskyism which Irving Kristol espoused when he was a card carrying member of the Communist party. While, the economic part of Communism is missing, the police state part of Communism (Sovietism) is the central core of the Republican Party today. Our leaders did not defeat Communism. They embraced it, and today, Ronald Reagan is turning in his grave. The Busheviks have betrayed the meaning of "American".

That's the sad part about it, there's no real debate either. It's more like studio wrestling - good vs. evil. During the Reagan era, one could agree to disagree - find common ground and compromise. No it's you're either with us or against us. It's truly sad...

The sad thing is all the Conservatives I know are just now awakening to the fact that Bush isn't a Conservative.
