A rant from a right-wing crazy
On our way back to my apartment today, Seth and I were, admittedly, dressed like hipsters. Behind us, two women were talking about the upcoming election, about the tea party phenomenon gripping the country. They said “Those tea partiers… I don’t support them. They’re all shameless idiots.”
I turned around and simply said “no, not really.” They immediately shut up, awkwardly. They didn’t expect 20-somethings dressed in Converse and Toms Shoes to be so idiotic.
The thing that infuriates me about the left-wing of this country is how self-righteous they are in their fury. They are open minded, they are accepting and they are tolerant. Unless you don’t agree with them. We see it a million times over, most recently in the firing of Juan Williams.
They believe that they are the most intelligent and capable people in the country, and the rest of “fly-over” country should shut up and vote with them in harmony. Because that’s bipartisanship, voting with them.
To them I have this to say: Look at the economies of California and New York verses that of Texas. New York and California have been ruled in every way by Democrat majorities for my entire lifetime. Need I say more? In Texas, in contrast, they have been ruled by the principles that guide the tea party: low taxes, low spending, minimal governmental interference. And guess what? That one state has created more than half the jobs in the United States between August 2009 and 2010, and has seen a net growth of jobs, while California and New York have seen their jobs escape at a clip.
So, if I had to chose, I choose the right. Ignorance is bliss, especially when you have a job.
I can see November from here.
