Nestled in the Bible is the story of Jacob and Esau. Older brother and man’s man, Esau came in from the field where he met his meeker younger brother Jacob making soup. Famished, Esau agreed to give up his birthright as the older brother for a mere bowl of soup. He had a hunger and the soup was its immediate joy. After consuming it, he looked back and realized what a fool he was to give up something as significant as an ancient birthright for the temporary pleasure of a bowl of soup. And I am here to tell my fellow conservatives that we have given up our birthright which was the merit of conservative thought for the bowl of soup that was hating anything about President Obama. No matter how much talk radio and conservative social media sites said that this soup was delicious, the day our tummies were full will have passed when Obama leaves office. And all we will have to show for it, is President Hillary Clinton. I guarantee it.
Hard Political Pill to Swallow.
Now, you can get mad at that assertion about Hillary if you want, but in the end it will either be true or it will not. I would preference otherwise, but it will be explicitly measurable. I plan on being around running this blog a year from now, so follow my Facebook page, hit me up in November 2016 and tell me if I was right or wrong. In fact, if Hillary is not the President-elect come November, I’ll do the Dougie dance on national TV in a thong. But just be warned that would be more a punishment for your eyes than an embarrassing moment for me.
The conservative movement, sometime around 2005, began the de-evolution that can only come from incest. Rather than engage our fellow citizens about the merit of conservative thought, give value to where others might differ, and perhaps make a beautiful baby of compromise to solve real problems, you started looking at your conservative cousin’s butt backwoods Alabama style. I like the way you Limbaugh, says one conservative to the other. You can Beck me anytime says a couple of conservatives to one another over tea. And before you know it, we started making some ugly incestuous babies together. I mean the kind that in your conservative circles, you feel like you have to say they are precious, but the rest of the world knows the truth. Think Jerry and Elaine from the below Seinfeld clip.
And what is worse, the conservative party made these ugly kids the poster boys. While every baby deserves a home, the nation that just elected Barrack Obama twice is not about to adopt the babies that the conservative movement has been creating wholesale. Because the Republican Party itself is fighting it in like a reverse custody battle. Then, the conservative family started cannibalizing any moderate that could help others see the potential beauty in it. Therefore, nothing new is injected and there is no adaptation. The Republican Party just keeps inbreeding itself to the point that America hardly recognizes it as a baby anymore. Certainly not Reagan’s baby, but don’t get me started on that.
I’m One of You, I just don’t Sleep with my Cousin.
I would classify myself as a conservative as me and you likely agree on much. I think the 2nd amendment is settled law and not to be infringed. I believe in the power of the free-market as one of History’s best systems for creating actual wealth for the many. I believe government exist to secure and protect certain inalienable rights given to us by our creator, not dispense them to us like a bowl of porridge in an orphanage where we say, “Thank you, Mr. President, may I have another.”
You see, aren’t those worthy ideas to be discussed? Have not these been our birthright since the inception of this nation? Then why have we traded the merit of these ideas for the bowl of soup that is just hating anything Obama did. Were we so foolish to presuppose that there would be no opposition? Did we think the constituents who elected him twice were just confused or lost?
How has that worked out for us so far? Anyone with a mind to compromise is jumping ship because they got tired of being forced to sleep with their bucktoothed obese cousin instead of the hottie across the aisle who might have a different opinion on healthcare, but has smoking hot support for the 2nd amendment. No, Uncle Cleetus says. You either make a baby with your cousin right now to prove you love your conservative family or we will kick you out for someone who will. Meanwhile, much of America is all like, “Hey, I love the 2nd amendment and all, but eww.”
The Way Forward
There are responsible conservative elected officials in office right now who are walking around with fake missing teeth and a bucket of artificial drool just to pretend they are one of the few, the proud, the inbred. I’m a Marine, I can hijack that slogan. Political cowards as they may be, they reflect a current political reality. Set them free America. Stop holding them hostage to what a blogger, even myself, or a talk radio show host says. Because neither myself or the most famous of pundits has to actually be accountable for anything. Simply put, constituents of America, presuppose half of America thinks differently about a few matters than you and you will have to work with them. It’s not hard.
I like soon to be House Speaker Paul Ryan. I think he is a principled man who holds conservative thought dear. However, if all you demand of him is more inbred thought, then we are no better off today than we were yesterday. We are losing with the current strategy as we are not just fighting a liberal President, but the half of America that voted them in office. That is why I love the readers of this blog, because we have multiple views and I enjoy hearing from them all. But for any of us, a failure to adapt today typically means a worse tomorrow.
Hear me now and hear me loud, if you insist the entirety of America cave to what would only be the majority opinion in the most conservative districts in South Carolina, conservative thought is dead. It won’t be Clinton 2016 that kills us, but it will be Michelle Obama 2024, and then soon to be followed by Bernie Sanders 2032. Nah, I’m just kidding, Bernie Sanders will totally be dead by then. But his ideas won’t. All because you hated Obama so much and spent your time inbreeding on social media with an incestuous like attraction to those who thought the exact same way as you. Some of you will unlike my page today because you don’t like what I said today. But for the future of America, I’m all like, what if you didn’t? For I have said it before and I’ll say it again, if the only thought you seek is homogenous thought to your own, then you really have to question if it is actually thought you seek.
