No, You’re an Idiot! Please Vote.
Well, it’s all come down to this. One day before the big election. It appears that the
good better guys are set to take over the House, and make some big gains in the Senate. Also, it looks like the Repubs are set to take over a large number of governorships. So, what’s the cause of this “wave” that’s apparently on its way? Well, if you ask the “party of the people,” it’s that the people are all idiots. We simply don’t understand all of the great things that our government has done for us in the past two years. The latest, and potentially greatest, source of liberal condescension? None other than John “I’ll raise your taxes but will park my boat elsewhere” Kerry:
‘It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds,’ Kerry said. ‘We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.’
“Truth and science and facts.” Well, I, for one, don’t ever want to be accussed of being part of that crowd know-nothingism (which I didn’t even know was a word until John “my wife is billionaire and paid for my Senate campaigns” Kerry made it so), so let’s drop some truth and science and facts before we all go to the polls:
Areas of the country where severe building restrictions (courtesy of liberals) made building new homes almost impossible (see California, for example), made affordable housing (required by the Community Reinvestment Act) even more impossible.
Banks and lenders, as a result of the requirements of the C.R.A. needed to find ways to get lower-income people into the aforementioned expensive housing. They did so by creating devices like adjustable rate mortgages which had low rates initially, and then rose after a couple of years.
Many other companies, like AIG, as well as semi-government entities Fannie and Freddie, purchased these securities, knowing that if they failed, the federal government would bail them out.
Once interest rates began to rise, those people that purchased homes on no-down, adjustable rate mortgages, couldn’t afford the higher payments, and mass foreclosures ensued (primarily in California, Nevada, and Florida). Because these securities were packaged and sold to investors around the world, however, everyone was affected.
Result: economic collapse. Original cause: liberalism.
Oh yeah. Contrary to popular meme, there was no “de-regulation” that contributed to the collapse…unless you want to point to law signed off on by Slick Willy.
American people told stimulus is necessary to keep unemployment from going over 8%. After billions spent, current umemployment rate: 9.5%. Reason: Most of the money went to government entities that don’t know how to create jobs.
Obamacare. American people told it was necessary to curb costs. American people told forcing 30 million people to get health insurance, regardless of health, while not allowing insurance companies to react accordingly, would somehow save us money. Result: Costs still going up, but more this time, and premiums set to skyrocket in January 2011.
Annual deficit went from $400 billion in 2009 fiscal year to $1.42 trillion in 2010 fiscal year. Reason: big government.
Recipients of almost 100% of tax-payer money: social security, medicare and medicaid. Who enacted these entitlements: liberals. Who refuses to fix: liberals.
Jobs continue to get outsourced. Reason: Multiple. One current reason: EPA‘s new carbon emissions make current factories too expensive to run and new factories impossible to build. Reason for EPA creating carbon emission standards: Liberal cap and trade bill, which would have done same thing, failed in Senate.
How to cut unemployment: Create jobs. How are jobs created? By people spending money. How can government give people more money? Cut their taxes. Liberals unwilling to extend Bush tax cuts for everyone unless they can increase taxes on wealthy.
I could go on, but you get the point. The foregoing are all examples of actual truth, science, and facts. Wait, I forgot the science.
In order to prove global warming is both occurring and man-made (and allow for larger government), liberals need to use, at least in part, doctored studies, while ignorning contradictory information.
There’s your “science.”
Who denies all of the foregoing? Liberals like John Kerry. Simply put, it’s not the gun-toting, Bible-thumping, red-necks who reside in the Middle that are idiots. In fact, we have our truth, science, and facts well at hand. Instead, it has been, and always will be, liberals who are the condescending, no-nothing, lunatics.
Look, I don’t know if the pundits are right about the coming Republican wave, and for that reason I will certainly be voting tomorrow, and hopefully seeing a different Congress come Wednesday.
P.S. This is for you Christine O’Donnell (and the liberals that laughed at you). You were correct during your recent debate with Chris Coons when you said there is no “separation of church and state” in the Constitution. There isn’t; it’s a Supreme Court concoction. But I wouldn’t have expected a liberal to know what the Constitution actually says.
