Headwinds And Moderates

Two things for this morning.  First is yet another of Michael Ramirez' stellar cartoons, brilliantly explaining the current economic and political situation of the day.

Second, in response to an article suggesting the conservative Right needs to moderate, Rush Limbaugh rattled off an absolutely brilliant monologue on yesterday's show about moderates and moderating our conservative principles.  There really is no summing up...just take the few minutes and listen.

Amen!  That's the key part, I think, though he goes on to expound at some additional length, and it is well worth your time to listen to the whole thing (second part is here).

The reasons Limbaugh expresses are precisely why I despise the hypocritical nature of RINOs and the multitude of incidents where the political Right fails to stand on their principles.

There's just too much at stake here, and the future of America as we know it -- and as it was founded: a nation of freedom and prosperity and Judeo-Christian values -- is being attacked on a daily basis now.  Moderation is tantamount to admitting a defeat, albeit a slower and gentler one.  Edmund Burke is generally credited with saying, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

Translation: when good men moderate, evil wins.

Personally, I'd rather have a victory than a gentler defeat, especially when the defeat results in a socialist tyranny where the government controls my life and the lives of my children.  How about you?

You'd better make your choice soon...there is no third option.
