You remember those days, don't you?
Play their mid-term election theme song.
THE SECRET HAND
By Paul Proctor
December 25, 2004
"If you think more Republicans are the answer to our problems, read the following commentary from 2004."
“On November 2, 2004, the American electorate voted into office a Republican President, Republican House, Republican Senate and a majority of Republican Governors. The Supreme Court is made up of a super-majority of Republican appointees. We have, in America, undeniable Republican Party Rule. If the Republican Party is pro-life, now is the best and only time to effectuate any real pro-life legislation.” – Covenant News Wire Service
I remember saying to my wife, after learning the election results in November, something to the effect: “Well, the republicans finally have it all; I wonder what they’ll use for an excuse now?”
Because I generally address matters of church and faith in this column, I tend to leave political commentary to others more qualified at NewsWithViews.com; however, because our president’s public persona has been overtly promoted as that of a faithful, evangelical, born again Christian, there are times I am compelled to address obvious patterns of gross inconsistency when they pose a threat to the church. This is one of those times.
As a conservative and a Christian, I have no interest in being a “Bush basher,” only a truth teller; and sometimes the truth, however unpleasant, must be told regardless of whom it might offend. If there was anything that needed bashing, it is the manipulative marketing machinery that keeps all presidential candidates, outside the elites’ two-party tent, in obscurity.
You see, Bush is not the problem; he’s merely the political pageant’s puppet of the day. If it wasn’t him, it would be another just like him; and in my estimation, no Machiavellian marionette is ever allowed on stage to perform without their strings attached. That’s why presidents and their promises change, but the overall agenda never does. Oh, it might slow down occasionally but never will it go into reverse as long as the Secret Hand holds the strings.
Because our financially fed and dialectically driven political process always presents the two dominate parties as “good versus evil,” and “the only real game in town,” the public at large is left, for all practical purposes, without any real elect-able alternatives. This thesis versus antithesis mindset, forever at work in politics, tells us that one candidate is clearly evil; therefore the other MUST be good or at least, the “lesser of two evils;” and as each new scandal breaks, smearing first, the one from party R, then the other from party D; the angst and polarity between the two spike into a frenzy forcing everyone involved to dig in their heels and feverishly defend their respective candidates at all costs, truth be damned; rendering all concerned unable to think, much less vote, outside the tent.
I will not waste your valuable reading time trying to glean any truths from the left side of the equation other than to say; liberals can be very entertaining if you can keep their clothes on, their conversations clean and their theories at bay.
Instead, because republicans are currently “in control,” what I would rather address, are some of the more popular misconceptions about the direction of today’s perceived “right.” Regardless of how many republicans were elected to office or will be appointed to the Supreme Court over the next four years; unless this nation repents and God Himself miraculously intervenes, the harsh reality is:
1. Roe vs. Wade will not be overturned
2. Human cloning and fetal stem cell research will proceed as planned
3. Euthanasia will abound
4. Homosexuality will be exalted, protected and promoted more than ever
5. The government will go right on growing itself at an alarming rate
6. Taxes will rise unabated
7. Debt and deficits will soar to unprecedented levels
8. Congress will vote themselves more and more raises
9. The dollar will decline into nothingness
10. Corruption and waste will increase dramatically
11. Public education will continue teaching theory over truth
12. Prime time TV will become porn time TV and involve younger people
13. Sex will be used to sell more products and services than ever before
14. Freedom and privacy will forever fade into memories
15. Violence, war and occult activity will become the norm and…
16. Those who persist in proclaiming the absolute truth of God’s Word will be ever more harassed, arrested, fined, incarcerated, persecuted, tortured, and/or killed, for their faithfulness.
