Post No Country for Fence Sitters
I understand a person’s need to withhold affiliation from a political party, hoping candidates will surface who best represent their individual interests. Since 2008 however, the lines distinguishing the parties have become quite distinct. The distinction becomes evident when looking at the majority party’s habitual spending, its apparent Progressive/Social agenda, and the continual intrusion into business, industry and into our lives.

Since the start of the Obama Administration and the Democrats having control of both houses, every significant piece of legislation has added to the National Debt and the Federal Deficit. The President has advanced the need to eliminate Don’t ask, Don’t tell, within the military and has recently announced a nominally qualified, left leaning appointee to the Supreme Court. The Government has ignored illegal immigration and now chooses to chastise those States trying to gain control of their borders. Immigration reform will consist of merely granting amnesty to 12-14 million illegal immigrants. The Government is a 62% shareholder in General Motors and also facilitated the foreign sale of Chrysler. The “bailout” companies are still on the hook, in spite of having paid back our money and this Administration dictates the salaries of executives within private industry. The Government has made banks reconfigure mortgages on homes being foreclosed upon, only to have owners default again, due to unemployment. Government health care reform will command 16% of the nation’s economy and it will increase government intrusion into our personal lives.

It is doubtful that any candidate from the majority party will support reducing government, decreasing spending, letting the market and the free enterprise system self-correct, elimination of entitlements, effective remedies for illegal immigration and repeal of the health care reform law.

Selecting your party affiliation in 2010 and in 2012 will be truly simple.

I can't understand some of the truly stupid reasons people give for holding on to the emotional addiction to the letter after their name. It seems to be a holy commitment. That letter (or lack of) is more important to their feeling of belonging than really fixing what's wrong with the governments they sit and complain about all day.

It's symptomatic of the all-talk-no-commitment mentality. And maybe it's best that those all-talk people stay on the fence or on the left.

I agree with you, Paul. It's easy if one really wants to do something and not just push hot air.
