I should have known better.
As I read the article it became clear that as a conservative, I remain a paranoid simpleton and little else.
The first bit of distortion came in the false indication claim that until the very recent past, the use of the word socialism among conservatives was rare, perhaps non existent.
Hannity could not have agreed more. "It is … the European Socialist Act of 2009," the host said, signing off. "We’re counting on you to stop it. Thank you, congressman."
There it was, just before the commercial: the S word, a favorite among conservatives since John McCain began using it during the presidential campaign.
Perhaps if the people in the MSM actually knew any conservatives rather than spending all of their time and having all of their conversations with fellow liberals, they would then know what conservatives talk about. What we are concerned with.
I can think of no point in time during my life as a conservative that the coming of socialism, or worse, has not been warned about.
Without exception the conservatives I have known personally and those I have read, watched and listened to have warned about the coming of socialism.
Socialism is not the newest buzz word among we conservatives.
What we are seeing now is what we have been speaking of forever.
John McCain did not drop some previously unknown truth on us or present us with some new terminology we were to take into the voting booth with us.
The fact is, a good portion of conservatives see John McCain as being but one small step himself from embracing socialism.
We were no less shocked than you liberals to hear McCain use the word.
If the liberal media bothered to pay attention they would know that the majority of conservatives had been warning of George W. Bush leading us in a socialist direction.
The word is not a new buzz word for us.
It is however rapidly becoming not just our reality, but every Americans reality.
Until next time, I bid you good day comrade.
