Well, I Am Angry. Are you? -Tilly

Last Tuesday’s results are no surprise. But they are disheartening nonetheless. It is frustrating, realizing the Democrats now have the White House, the Senate and the House. What this means is nothing less than a blatant turn towards liberalism. We are going to see a Washington push for universal healthcare, a decrease in military spending, an increase in taxes, bigger government, amnesty for illegal immigrants. The list could go on. As conservatives, it is right that we are disheartened. And we should not look at the Democratic takeover and be anything less than angry. I, for one, am livid.
It angers me to know Obama has promised to sign the Freedom of Choice Act. This act will eliminate all restrictions on abortion ever passed by any state legislature. That means a twelve year old will be able to get an abortion without parental consent. There will be no 48 hour waiting periods and no requirements for abortion doctors to provide information on adoption to women considering abortion. Thirty-five years of the pro-life movement’s efforts, down the drain.
It angers me to know that Obama proposes policies such as universal healthcare which are socialistic in nature. And lets be clear, socialism is directly opposed to the foundation of the U.S. The founders realized humanity’s selfish nature. They created a system of checks and balances because of this realization. The theory of socialism is built upon the idea that man is not selfish, but good. Socialism does not work because its very foundation is flawed. Our founders realized man’s selfish nature. Obama does not. His policies oppose the very foundation of the Constitution.
It angers me when I hear Obama promise to cut military spending and disarm many of our nuclear weapons. Here again, Obama has too much faith in the goodness of mankind. His line of thinking says that if we weaken our military, the world will feel less threatened and therefore, be more likely to be friendly with us. This is preposterous. This was the same argument levied against Ronald Reagan in his buildup of the military during the 80’s. Liberals screamed he was just making the world more angry with us, which would lead to war. What happened? Well, Reagan sent the Soviet Union into bankruptcy and won the Cold War. The liberals were wrong then and they are wrong now. Obama’s plan will only make us weaker, giving our enemies more chance to take advantage of us diplomatically, and more likely to threaten militarily.
It angers me to know Obama plans a tax increase, even if it only on the top 5% of Americans. These are the individuals who own small businesses, who employ numerous individuals. When these people are given a tax increase, they have less money to pay their employees, which means fewer raises and more layoffs. This is basic economics. Our President-elect apparently does not understand it.
We must fight these policies which are being proposed. It is right that we are frustrated and angry that the American people would place the government in the hands of these people. Think about it. The party now in power is a pro-abortion, socialistic, anti-military, tax-hiking group of liberals. Doesnt that just infuriate you?
