When one declares oneself to be a conservative, one is not, unfortunately, thereupon visited by tongues of fire that leave one omniscient. The acceptance of a series of premises is just the beginning. After that, we need constantly to inform ourselves, to analyze and to think through our premises and their ramifications. We need to ponder, in the light of the evidence, the strengths and the weaknesses, the consistencies and the inconsistencies, the glory and the frailty of our position, week in and week out. Otherwise, we will not hold our own in a world where informed dedication, not just dedication, is necessary for survival and growth.

A Guest Post From Ken....Baracks's Night Before Christmas

A fantabulous guest post written by Ken at The Liberal Lie, The Conservative Truth


Twas just days before Christmas and all through the land, liberals were celebrating the election of their man.

His name was Barack the libs favorite son, they just worshipped this guy and called him, "the one."

He hailed from Hawaii or Kenya or both, the left didn't care they just gave him their vote.

With change as his motto and no substance at all, this guy came from nowhere and they gave him the ball.

Now he has signs which say, "I'm Prez -Elect," he's picking and choosing from rivals to select,

those that work with him as he takes up the reigns, of an office in DC which can be a strain.

Nancy and Harry are up on the Hill, chuckling and dancing, which gives me a chill.

"We've got full control and we think it just swell, though the people who come here surely do smell."

"We'll push through our socialist plan every day, with our messiah, Barack leading the way !"

But wait just a minute, "the one," changed his plan, he's picking some people who differently stand.

He says to Bob Gates, " I want you to stay, since defense in now working we'll keep it that way."

The left is now fuming and feeling betrayed, but don't worry guys you'll still get your way.

You see he's got Hillary and Joe, Eric and Bill, they think as he does from the left with a shrill.

Don't forget Bubba with his wife now at State, he'll find blonds and brunettes to add to his slate.

Barack's in Chicago meeting the press, with his wife named Michelle finding an Inaugural dress.

He stands at his mike with a sign he made up, just telling his minions, "I'll give you a full cup."

"Filled with programs and goodies and government deals, paid for by those with more earnings, those heals !"

"I've got bailouts and credits and loads of green cash, whose mortgage is paid for by those we will tax."

"I'll talk to Iran, Hugo and Castro, we'll sit at a table they'll call me their Bro."

"The UN will be the foreign policy guide, and terrorist need no longer to hide."

"The courts will take over not guns, men and tanks, the troops will come home and give ME their thanks."

"Their mission will be left not finished and undone, but I'll still claim victory and tell you, I'VE won."

"The troops will complain about their relief, but who gives a rip I'm Commander in Chief !"

Barack will soon to Washington go, with plans and agendas taking him to an fro.

They'll dance and they'll sing on inauguration day, but surely our history might show him the way.

When he sees each great icon of George, Abraham and Tom, standing in awe in Washington town.

I pray that the influence these giants created, will give him a pause and he'll see he's overrated.

The greatness of men who have led us through time, may hopefully give Barack the wisdom of mind,

to see that our freedoms came not from the Gov, but from a an idea whose framing was made through strong love.

For a country where everyone achieves and believes, in making our way in this land of the free.

If this happens when Barack takes command, then maybe we'll have bright hope in our land.

If not then the struggle in keeping us free, will reside in the power of you and of me.

In making this guy who thinks Gov is the key, accountable and answerable to each who are free !

If we do then this Christmas of two thousand and eight, will be one in which we the people do great.

In keeping our land from the socialist bug, and fighting for freedom in this land that we love.

Telling this guy who thinks he's the light, Merry Christmas to all, and our country's still RIGHT!!

Excellent post.

I fear accountability is something which shall be in even shorter supply for at least the next four years.

TAO said...

I believe that which you fear began along time ago with an intern and has continued unabated to today....

Just read an articles, one about the government is passing a bill that would allow companies to not make required payments into their company pension plans...that will come back to haunt us.

Two, apparently hundreds of people, home buyers, mortgage brokers, and lenders, are being prosecuted for fraud as a result of the subprime mortgage meltdown.

The real question that needs to be asked is if WE are the people that are deserving of the heritage represented by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln?

Can you rightfully expect a country to find leadership in a pool of immoral people?

Excellent post, Ken. Of course, I could be critical of a little of the meter (because I'm that way), but I'll just enjoy it as is and smile. :)

Tao: It's up to US to be those leaders, then.

TAO said...


Yes, it is up to us....but I question we are up to the task.

We want to believe more than think...we have become so full of our own self importance that we cannot see the results of our own actions and beliefs.

We believe everyone else needs to change except us. We believe that we have the answers and everyone else is foolish.

By "We" "us" and "everyone else" are interchangeable terms that incomposses each and every person in this country.

We have the internet and all the data and information that it can provide and yet we blog, not to learn or expand our personal knowledge but rather as a way to blow smoke up our own asses....

I read this post at Ken's when he first wrote it and it's extremely clever! LOL!

Patrick M said...

Except I have the answers, Tao.
