Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Cares About Everyone’s Ideas…

Nobody Cares

Yes, I care about all my readers…the Aussie amfortas..for his great insights and exceptional writings..dandapani for keeping me on the straight when I wander, Pattie for all the pictures she takes for my blog, and the woman who always says she “likes’ my pieces, always makes my day. JR, my liberal friend who loves the military, Mr. Doug Powers…for always giving me hope that someday I could be as good as he is…(give me another 10 years!) And Tom Beebe…a man who always has a lot of great things to say, and so I’m posting one of them today.

Here’s Tom’s thoughts on the elections..I wanted to share them to all of you, because I like them too. (THanks to Tom for letting me post them.)

(PS…I only mention the readers that I know of, it’s because I don’t know you.  If you have never commented, or sent me an email..go ahead! Don’t be shy! My email address is joyanna_adams@yahoo.com.

NOW…to Tom’s Piece:

*************************

The patron saint of Chicago politics said it:  “Nice guys finish last” – Leo Durocher

So you offered us McCain and Mittens (as my would-be Liberal grandson calls him). And they were crushed by the passion, and the venom, of the machine.  As for living on as what the Brits call “The Loyal Opposition”, fuggedaboutit.

Then who will assume that role?  May I suggest a marriage of the passion of the Tea Party to the principles and the discipline of the Libertarians? But first the former must rid itself of the hypocrites and fools that contributed to the demise of the Republicans.

How can you ask government to regulate who shall marry, or whether a pregnancy shall be carried to term, and not expect to get the nanny state of the elitist Bloombergs of the world? Abdicate if you will, the admonishing of your daughters to keep their legs together, and you will find your sons are told to put down that Big Mac. Ask government to intrude into bedrooms, or the institution of marriage, and you cannot deny that it tell you where and with whom your children will be schooled.

The outlier, to use a now popular phrase, was Reagan. But did any Republican since him show the cajones to tell Gorbachev to “tear down this wall”?  The Libertarians have a fighter in Ron Paul, but his time has passed. Who within the Tea Party has shown the consistency to resist that darker side which passes for humanity, the Obama statists, heirs to their fellow Socialists, Marx, Stalin, and Hitler?

So to you who bemoan yesterday’s results, I say gather your resolve for tomorrow’s opportunities. Offer not candidates who, like Perot, say “I ran a business” nor compromised combatants like Gingrich who pushed back at the media or Christie that pushed back at the avarice of the educational establishment. Find instead a Reagan for our time, one who combines principle with action. Then this nation will see an opposition worthy of its trust.

  2. The tea party outragers, the Democrat hackers, the Republican hordes, are all very well. Their ‘leaders’ are just mouth-pieces for shadow figures. But it is the voters that matter.

    Yes, even I can be swayed by a pretty face or a well turned phrase but I don’t fall over or vote on them. But the American people do it seems. If a person ‘looks Presidential’ it seems to be enough.

    Governments can be pretty shocking wherever one is, but generally the Will of the People is clear, even if suppressed. But from over here it looks very much as though the Will of the American people is befuddled by addiction to credit and goodies, handouts and whines, and the blaming of men and whites for everything bar Hurricanes. Strike that, Men and whites seem to be blamed for those too.

    If I were a President I would be shouting ‘Bring me another People’. Perhaps that is what happened. Not only is America not your grand-dad’s America, the American People are not your grandad’s grandkids.
