What Goes Around Comes Around
Evangelicals and Progressives. Different faces of the same coin, the diminishment of individual freedoms (for our own good, of course).
In 1982, I was a Republican Precinct Committeeman. Evangelicals had taken control of the party, local school boards, city and county offices, and were trying for state and national control; the so-called Silent Majority. They were RIGHT, and, if you opposed them, they would do their best to crush you. Silly sots spent a great deal of effort to field a candidate for Precinct Committeeman, the most trivial of elected offices, and oust me. They won. A few days later I became the Democrat Precinct Committeeman.
In 2002 I witnessed the Progressives taking control of the Democratic Party and kicking all of us Blue Dogs to the curb. No tolerance or concessions to differing views were allowed. Blue Dog, sit in the back of the Big Tent, keep your mouth shut, but do keep your wallet open.
Their beliefs may be in opposition, but their goals are the same; use the force of government and laws to impose their beliefs on the populace at large.
Will the upcoming fall elections be a start of a push back? Or, as detailed in Sipsy Street Irregulars, http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/, 4G warfare and the ever popular, "As long as I have my rifle, I still get to vote"?
And, 2016? Hillary? Given her track record of utter ruthlessness, that will surely bring it.
In other news, we had a 3.7 earthquake last night. Rare event in NE Colorado. Watch the ecofreaks blame fracking.
