The Loyal Opposition

The "Loyal Opposition" was an expression used to describe the political party not in power during times of stress and crisis. It denoted that although disagreements existed regarding the means of addressing problems, we were still united as a nation towards the end that was sought. The guiding principle of this spirit was that "politics stops at the water's edge" and we presented a united face to the world.

This expression is no longer a valid way to describe the modern Democrat Party. Since losing its majority status a decade ago, a state of being perceived by Democrats as their birthright, they have become increasingly unhinged. In their relentless lust and desire to bring failure to Republicans, they have lost all perspective and regard for our national welfare.

They have craved bad news from any source in the hopes of regaining the power they believe was stolen from them. Bad economic news, social decay, and astoundingly, even military setbacks, are music to Democrat ears. The consequences that accompany these misfortunes are of no concern to them - the only thing that registers is the hope for a return to their glory days.

How could Representative John Murtha (D-PA) claim we couldn't win in Iraq and demand immediate withdrawal of our troops only 3 weeks before the crucial elections that could seal our victory there? If he truly felt this way, why couldn't he have waited until the election had taken place to express his opinion? The answer is clear. Democrats are terrified that Bush's strategy, the one they have done everything possible to disrupt from the very beginning, is going to succeed and America will be victorious.

Murtha, ostensibly regarded as strong on defense, was chosen by the party leadership to try and sabotage the success of the election and undermine the spirit of the Iraqi people and the will and resolve of our troops. Democrats are afraid that an American success in the war on terror will be credited to Republicans, and will obstruct their return to power.

It would be very difficult to find a more disgraceful episode in American history than the Democrat behavior through this time of crisis. Their sedition warrants they should never again be entrusted with the mantle of power. The American people should demand that Democrats hang their heads in shame.

The evolution of this "Opposition" and its effects can and most likely will be linked to the fall of the true American civilation if it is permitted to persist. The Opposition has for all intensive purposes declared war on traditional American society, brining with it gay rights, abortion, and a welfare society, to cite the tip of the iceberg. They may say they oppose President Bush and his policies, but the Bush Administration is merely their front to persecute our American heritage.

The current assault on morality in America has reigned unopposed in many areas of our disintegrating society. Any attempt at opposition is met at the gate by the A.C.L.U. and professors on college campuses who have indoctrinated America's youth for decades. Campuses where "Free Speech" applies only to the regurgetation of Marxist theory and Communist rhetoric.

What has happened to the basic American beliefs and principles? Among our previously unalienable rights, we were endowed by our Creator (who has been practically expelled from America) is the "pursuit of happiness."

Earning a living now means that you're expected to smile when Uncle Sam, Teddy Kennedy, and the Clintons take 40% of your paycheck, so that others may pursue your (and their) happiness.

"United we stand" should be changed to "United we stood." Treason is defined as "Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies." How much clearer could these attempts by the media and democrats be?

In what direction is this country heading? How long will the silent majority sit on its hands while our traditional American principles and heritage are stripped, erased, aborted, taxed, banned, and burned by the "Loyal Opposition?"
