Bloviating Zeppelin: The Difference

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Difference

Violence Worker had an excellent post on Friday which essentially distilled down the major differences between not only the candidates but the elemental philosophies of the Demorats and the Republicans -- and even further, the foundational philosophies between Leftists/Socialists and Conservatives. Negativism vs. Positivism.

VW wrote in part:

I think the biggest difference between Obama's speech and McCain's speech was the difference between dependence and independence. Obama told us what government was going to do for us and McCain emphasized that we should be out there doing something worthwhile.

To which I write: precisely. I commented:

You CORRUPT people, you CORRUPT their nature, you CORRUPT their SOULS and make them WORTHLESS in mind and spirit when you do nothing but provide people "things" for FREE, for no WORK, no sweat, no investment.

The Demorats are the party of the Soul Eaters. Because an empty soul will believe and continue to cling to that which provides "more" for "less."

But there is NO "more" for "less" UNLESS you are NOT a provider and NOT a contributer to a society.

You either GIVE or you TAKE. You work, contribute and volunteer or you deplete.

Obama and the Demorats appeal to the WORST in people: "give me _____ for FREE, and keep me hooked like an addict; I'll therefore DEPEND on you for all. There is no religion; the government is the closest you'll be to a god."

Conservatism appeals to the BEST in people and says: "Do for yourself. Learn to create, to expand, acquire expertise and facility. Learn independence. Do this with a cognizance of your place in the universe and under the guidance of a Higher Power, God."

And that, dear readers, is what I determine to be the difference between the two philosophies.

As John McCain concluded in his acceptance speech:

Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. Nothing is inevitable here. We're Americans, and we never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.

It's the difference between "what can I do to serve my country?" and "what can my country do to serve me?"

"Ask not what your country can do for you--ask what you can do for your country." ~JFK~

Made sense then, makes sense now...

1st said by a Dem, now repeated by a Dem Lite... Let's HOPE that McCain does more with it than JFK did...

Yes, I said Dem Lite, he still IS in my opinion, he's just got a better VP choice backing him up, and one that I believe can step right in and take over if necessary...

I was really serious BZ, I still don't like McCain, I still do NOT trust him, I still believe he is a lot closer to the Dems than he EVER was to Repubs, and I still think the Repubs of today are WAY too close to the Dems of a few years ago...

But I think Palin will offset anything he can screw up and if, God forbid, McCain should fall dead after he's sworn in, we STILL win, with Palin...

I did suddenly like McCain a lot more.

But, the real good news for us is a resurgence of Conservatism in the Republican party. McCain was looking at losing because he is who he is. Then he did something I never expected him to. He vaulted a little known conservative Governor to the upper echelon of the party.

If the republicans wish to have any future at all, it is with folks like Palin, McConnell, Steele, Jindal et cetera.

McCain, a "moderate" just did more for the conservative future of the party than anyone since Regan.

With this, the conservative philosophy can and will make good things happen.

For the first time in a long time, I'm jazzed.

Thanks for the mention BZ!!!!

I was for McCain because I could not support Obama. With Palin, I was sold.

Who knew we'd find the next Reagan in Alaska and wearing a skirt?

It's all because the Democrats are buying votes with the money we earn. That and voter fraud are the only ways they can win.

Zoom.... that's the sound of what is being said here and there going over the head of the Obamamaniacs....

I asked a hispanic lasy at work the other day:|What id you think of McCains speech...she said he sounded like GWB again.I said really? did you watch it? her answer was Nope.

I asked so you ae voting for Obama right? She said heck yeah. I asked
Who is Obama's running mate, she said she didnt know, I said you know there is a woman running for VP she said thats great who?

I talked to a Black man about the election he speaks of Obama as the second comming and he made the mistake of bringing race into the discussion with me... He said if Obama doesnt win its because of his race, so I said if he does win it's because of his race.. White guilt for no other reason than to keep folks like him from being offended.
He could not mention ONE item on obama's plan, he couldn't tell me what obama has done, he couldnt tell me anything.

These are the types of folks that pick our elected folks, these people are whats wrong with our country now, and I told her that. I may be looking for a job sooner than expected.

Bushwack: you are so correct. The electorate is remarkably stupid and remarkably frightening because of it.
