I am the MainstreamPosted Wednesday, November 11, 2009, at 4:48 PM
Listen up leftists, and liberals, and all you America haters out there, I am the Mainstream, not you. Let us examine just a few issues.
Ft. Hood is one example. I believe that a reasonable person could look at what happened, and draw the right conclusion. This attack at Ft. Hood was yet another Islamic act of terrorism. So clear is the evidence of such, that even a government worker should be able to see the truth.
The extreme point of view comes from the leftists, and Obama. They are willing to point to anything, other than the truth. To ignore facts and to put political correctness ahead of common sense, is extreme. I am the Mainstream, you liberals are the extremists.
Look at the work this current Congress and President are doing to destroy our Republic. After the abject failure of Social Security and Medicare, the trillions wasted, what do the extremists want to do?
A reasonable person, a "Mainstream" person, would say, "Hey government, why don't you repair the two major bureaucracies that you have created, bankrupted and mismanaged? Then we'll talk about health care.
If you can save 500 billion dollars in Medicare, then why don't you do that first? Save the 500 billion, without killing old people, and then come talk to us.
You extremists say, the hell with all that, we need 110 new bureaucracies...now! We need to steal trillions from future generations, and we need you old people to just die already. Then these geniuses propose that some snot nosed bureaucrat, who cannot recognize a terrorist standing front of them firing a weapon and killing Americans, suddenly has enough where-with-all, to decide your medical care. That is extreme. I am the Mainstream, you liberals are the extremists.
Abortion is yet another example. I think it is reasonable to respect life. It is reasonable to demand that and end to the senseless murder of three thousand American children each and every day. You extremists say we must kill three thousand kids a day, because one of those pregnancies might have bee the result of rape or incest. I think it is extreme to kill three thousand lives everyday, rather than deal with the one difficult pregnancy. I am the Mainstream, you liberals are the extremists.
It is reasonable to want the USA to lead the world in energy. It is reasonable to use our assets to our own best interest. We have oil, we should use it. We have coal, we should use it. We have the technology to go nuclear in a big way, and we should use it. We should do our best to use these resources and respect the environment. All very reasonable.
You extremists say, any creature on Earth has priority over humans. You say we must waste trillions in green fantasies and untested theories. You say we must kill and punish our own industries. You say we must tax our people with even more fervor. That is extreme. I am mainstream, you liberals are the extremists.
Immigration? Same deal all the way. I say, a reasonable person would say, that our borders should be secured, YESTERDAY. We should encourage legal immigration, and stop the illegal immigration. A reasonable person would expect that Americans of Mexican descent would want to help us in our efforts to secure this country. With the Mexican nationals that are already here and want to stay here, there should be made a way, but secure the freakin' borders. How tough is it?
You extremists say that once anyone for any reason hits our shore line, they are entitled to be treated exactly as citizens. They get free health care, food stamps, housing assistance, JOB assistance, legal aid, and on an on. You liberals want to buy and extra twenty million votes in the next election, so you'll promise amnesty, and count all the illegals in the next census, so that they can vote and gain political power. I think it extreme just to let any nation, Mexico or otherwise, simply invade your country and take over. I am the mainstream, you liberals are the extremists.
That brings us to what once was called the Mainstream Media. Sorry folks, but ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR are now the extreme media. The Mainstream Media is now FOX NEWS, Rush Limbaugh, Drudge, Beck, Hannity, etc.
It is reasonable to expect that our national media would act as a watchdog to our government. Instead the Extreme Media has acted like a lapdog, not a watchdog. The Extreme Media has become a part of the Obama Administration. That is extreme. I am Mainstream, you liberals are the extreme.
I bring this up because our Republic has some tough days ahead. Please don't fall for the propaganda that common sense is racism. Don't let the Extreme Media, or Extreme Democrat politicians try and tell you that we "Mainstreams" aren't doing enough, or paying enough. Don't be afraid to stand up. If our Republic is to survive this current Administration, then we'll need allot more folks to stand up. We are the mainstream.
