Having finally gotten past the national political conventions, we now have only the debates to get through before this interminable election season ends on November 6. I know I’m not the only one who will be glad when it’s all over. The Democratic convention lived up to every expection of a three-day set of proceedings akin to the famous bar scene in Star Wars – it was wild, crazy, disorganized, and outrageous. Here are some thoughts, not that they matter much:

Tuesday: It was the big night for Michelle Obama’s speech, but I didn’t watch it. Given the fact that I’m not single, female, and needing to be scared to death that Mitt Romney will force me to back alleys for coat-hanger abortions performed by amateurs with dirty instruments I figured a combination of MLB Network, Iron Chef America, and a Sean Connery movie would be sufficient entertainment alternatives.

Wednesday: I’ll admit I had to see the afternoon debacle over the party platform, where a majority of the delegates, not ashamed to be acting in the tradition of Peter the night before Jesus’ crucifixion, denied God thrice before a confused and overwhelmed convention chair Antonio Villaraigosa. He finally put an end to the madness by declaring the a formal recognition of God and Jerusalem as capital of Israel passed by a 2/3 majority even though it was clear to everyone the motion had failed. What an embarrassment. After that, not interested in hearing the screeds by Sandra Fluke – the Georgetown University student and unabashed proponent of American taxpayers not only footing the bill for her birth control, but all abortions and sex-change operations as well, Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren, and Bill Clinton, I chose a trio of old Humphrey Bogart / Lauren Bacall movies on Turner Classic Movies. Not a bad decision by any means. One final thought: is it just me, or did anyone else see the irony in the collection of women speakers speaking about women’s rights sharing the same stage with a pathological cheater and philanderer?

Thursday: Big night with Joe Biden and the Prez. Me? I chose Golf Channel’s first-round coverage of the BMW Championship. Given that even the most ardent Obama supporters begrudgingly admit there was nothing new in his underwhelming and pedestrian speech, I don’t think I missed much. Besides, watching Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy trade one great golf shot after another was really something to behold. To see two great golfers at the heights of their games battling it out ought to make for a great weekend for golf viewing.

OK, so I didn’t watch a minute of the convention, but these days you don’t need to sit in front of a TV and watch the proceedings to know what was going on – there are plenty of blogs, YouTube videos, Twitter, and all sorts of websites to filter out the bull$hit. The Dems, facing a deficit in voting enthusiasm, needed to fire up their base – women and minorities – so, forget about jobs and the 32 million unemployed people out there, the most important message to take away from these proceedings was two-fold: 1) a woman’s right to abortion on demand, no matter when, how, or who, trumps every other national concern; and 2) that the government who loves you and cares for you needs to further expand so it can take care of everyone and everything, no matter the cost. After all, it’s the only thing we all belong to, right? Unreal.

Seriously, my guess is that this convention turned a lot of independents off. It’s obvious that today’s Democratic Party is as far removed from the party of FDR, JFK, and LBJ as Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is from reality. Like with the mainline Protestant churches, it has been hijacked by a rabid, viral, and hateful bunch of left-wing zealots masking their loathing and disdain for this country and its constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms under the phony progressive banner of “equality”, “justice”, tolerance”, and “diversity”. (I put those words in quotes because they’re really not interested in those ideals, only using them as cover for their real objective, which is to obtain the necessary power so that the federal government becomes the vehicle to implement their socialist agenda in every way possible before the people wake up to their real objective.

The good thing is that, with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, and Barack Obama and Joe Biden you have two very different visions for America’s future to vote on come November 6. It will be, perhaps, the most important election this country has had since 1860, for, just like that year’s election, the outcome will decide what the United States of America will look like in the coming decades. In my view, the choice is really between, as the great Mark Levin has written, liberty and tyranny, and the kind of people we want to be.

I can only pray the electorate chooses wisely, the future of our nation depends on it.

  1. I don’t watch anything political on TV nor read about it elsewhere…I do get a bit of news in the morning and it seems that both the President and Romney are even in the polls. Wonder what that means in terms of who will be elected? I don’t dislike politics…I despise politicians and don’t believe anything they say they can will be done.
    I am convinced that this country is actually run by the Supreme Court as they seem to be the only ones who can actually make a decision that no one can challenge. They are the Volturi (you have to be a Twilight fan to get this).
