To Many Democrats Chagrin, Jesusland Becomes Redder With Each Passing Election 
 

11-15-2004

Following the historic election on November 2, 2004, President Bush stated, “We have one country, one constitution and one future that binds us.” There those among us who don't see it that way.

Amid the cacophony of distressed and defeated Liberal Democrats on the political scene and in the elitist mainstream media, all we hear about is the 'moral issue' that lost them the election. As they spin reality into a more digestible facade for themselves, they use this fallacious topic to once again begin attacking Republicans for their own shortcomings and revert back the 'divided America' mantra made more famous by John Edwards on the campaign trail.

John Edwards railed, "Today, under George W. Bush, there are two Americas, not one: One America that does the work, another America that reaps the reward. One America that pays the taxes, another America that gets the tax breaks. One America that will do anything to leave its children a better life, another America that never has to do a thing because its children are already set for life. One America -- middle-class America - whose needs Washington has long forgotten, another America - narrow-interest America - whose every wish is Washington's command. One America that is struggling to get by, another America that can buy anything it wants, even a Congress and a President."

Edwards's intention while spouting this diatribe was to instigate the very 'separation' or division among the American constituency he was asserting had already taken place because of President Bush and his administration policies.

Any of us with even a modicum of common sense knows that the President did not push through tax cuts that were fought against by Democrats... Medicare reform that included prescription drugs for Seniors that was fought against by Democrats... The War on Terror that included the destruction of Saddam Hussein's despotic regime through Operation Iraqi Freedom that was fought against by Democrats... No Child Left Behind public school reform that empowered parents, was partially written by Democrats and has since been vilified by Democrats... Protect the sanctity of marriage by averting future attempts (and some that are happening currently) of activist judges to thwart the legislation of state constitutions... as a means to intentionally divide the country, pitting one group of Americans against another.

This may sound coherent to Liberal Democrats who worship the meandering mendacity produced by the likes of Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, George Soros, or Moveon.org, but in the reality of the everyday average Joe American's life it just doesn't add up to a hill of beans.

When John Kerry called the President, he said he told President Bush, “We talked about the danger of division in our country and the need, the desperate need for unity, for finding the common ground, coming together.” The problem is he was telling the wrong person and the idea of his message was simply illaudable and self-aggrandizing.

There has always been a division in this country and there always will be one. There will always be those who have and those who don't. There will always be the Right and the Left... black and white... secular and religious... the list goes on perpetually. That was the basic foundation of this country.

As a matter of fact, diversity is the very thing Liberals have argued for years that we should be embracing to make us stronger as a nation. Suddenly, after one election that has all changed. Democrats have now divided the country into two distinct areas of landmass that they have renamed, The United States of Canada (blue states) and Jesusland (red states).

In their misguided attempt to castigate Republicans over the election, they have openly demonstrated something they have utilized under the radar for years... their complete and utter disdain for Christianity, especially religious Southerners. They have never been able to accept any viewpoint that is divergent from the pabulum they have force-fed Americans for years.

Peter J. Wallison said it best in his recent column titled, 'Two Americas': In his best selling book, Bias, Bernard Goldberg noted perceptively that most liberal bias in the press does not arise from a deliberate effort to distort the news for political purposes, but from an essential ignorance that others can reasonably hold views different from theirs- an unwillingness, in effect, to accept differing views as legitimate. In this sense, the positions of Friedman and Wills rise almost to parody. The fact that Christian fundamentalists hold different views from their own means that, in their eyes, the fundamentalists are divisive and intolerant- as though the views of Friedman and Wills have a legitimacy that makes all others' unworthy.

But what is really happening goes even deeper than that. The hatred Liberal Democrats share of Republicans is so much more prevalent now because Democrats know they are quickly losing the grip they have for so long held politically over the machinations of everyday America. Their agenda has always been to keep Americans at the mercy of the government and they have worked to entrench the 'New Deal' policies of the past into the psyches of dependent Americans forever as testified in Edwards' rant.

What happened during the election where Republicans gained across the board victories and eleven states passed anti-gay marriage legislation set back that Liberal philosophy and showed Americans that they have the power to effect change and policy in the American political landscape. That leaves Liberals powerless and vitriolic.

Democrats controlled Congress for years and their policies have been in place all that time. Protecting those policies protected the power they felt they possessed over Americans, even though time has now proven those policies to be, for the most part, utter failures. Reform is the only way for the future and only one political party whole-heartedly supports reform. Something Democrats still don't understand.

The country is divided, but it has always been elitist Liberals who have underestimated the American electorate, thinking Americans are stupid, uneducated religious fanatics who can't comprehend the complexities of the political process, which was designed specifically to work best from a competitive mindset.

And yet, today the country is apparently less divided than it was even 10 years ago on most issues facing American families as we forge ahead into the future. To many Democrat's chagrin, that fact is ever more evident as the country of Jesusland becomes redder with each passing election.
