I often wonder how a small group of right-wingers can hang out day after day on left leaning blogs. You must be very brave and righteous (and have a lot of time on your hands). I couldn’t stand doing the same on a right-wing blog. That would have me in a nut house before you could say Frederick Koch (Koch Brothers Daddy) or John Birch. It would drive me crazy and maybe that is the answer. Maybe we just attract the crazies on the right.
I’m waiting for the righties to write a cogent and all-encompassing article on the contributions of conservatives to the good of the nation. I would think they would have a lot to say about that instead of just checking “thumbs down” boxes which doesn’t take a great deal of talent.
Recently on Facebook, a friend shared a terrific post with me and here it is:
“Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly and poor out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, and the Voting Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act. What did the Conservatives do? They opposed every one of those programs – every single one! So when you try to hurl the word “liberal” at my feet, as if it were dirty, something to run away from, something that I should be ashamed of, it won’t work because I will pick up that label and wear it as a badge of honor. (So spoke Congressman Santos, on the 2005 TV series “The West Wing”.
So, come on Righties, the above comments from a fictitious character in a TV series should give you food for thought because most of us Lefties really, sincerely, believe in what that character said and know it is true.
Judging from your wild comments to us Lefties, this should be a “walk in the park” for you. I’m sure all the other leaders on our blog will support the publication of such an article. Or are you just “chicken” (baby ones to boot).
Come on, show us that you can write a few sentences in logical order and stop hiding behind pseudonyms. I think I can promise you that we won’t bite or pull out our concealed marshmallow weapons if we find out who you are.
We’ll even invite you to our Author’s party at the end of the year. Wouldn’t that be fun?
