The arrogance of the Leftists is amazing. They are still harping on how foolish it was for Americans to vote for President Bush based on their moral values....which leads one to ask, on what basis should one vote? Should one attempt to be ammoral in considerations of who should lead the country? Wouldn't that lead to Machiavellian thinking that the Libs claim to deplore? Or worse yet, should one vote immorally? Wouldn't that lead to the excesses and greed also deplored by the Liberals? The current ranting, raving, and whining by the Democrats and their media mouthpieces would have one believe that the Inquisition was coming back and pillories and stockades would be reappearing in town squares along with the requisite witch dunkings and adultery brandings. The pendulum never swings far from the center. What may really be behind the whining of the Left Coast is the fact that the pendulum is swinging back to the center, away from the extreme left where they have been trying to push it. America is growing tired of the trashy antics of celebrities, it does not wish to have a Liberal agenda forced upon it by activist judges, and did not believe that Senator Kerry could possibly relate to the common people. If one looks deeply at the message being sent by the Democrats, one must conclude that the Democrats think nothing of selling out one's values for comfort, security, government subsidies, etc. -- which is ironic since the Democrats would have been unable to deliver on any of its promises. Liberal pundits have claimed that November 3rd was a "Black Day for Democracy." One must conclude that they think Democracy means only voting for Democrats. People certainly exercised their democratic rights on Election Day and sent clear messages at all levels of government, which is exactly how a democracy is supposed to work. Instead of whining about how Americans won't vote for their Liberal agenda and "good" intentions, why not find out how to represent the needs of ALL of the people that the candidates are supposed to represent?
