To Kill The Debt to The Piper

First of all, let’s be clear: the Liberals didn’t win the White House and Congress, Conservatives lost it.

The only major party that was serious about terrorism, our economy, fuel autonomy, and the rights of the unborn lost it by diverting their attention from the issues that concern ALL of America to those that concern a portion of the population. 

I have spent the last 3 years warning people that you cannot continue to find fault with Bush and all things GOP…you cannot say that you are a Republican–2nd or maybe…you cannot demand complete adherence to an ideology and worship at the Reagan shrine that no one can possibly live up to…you cannot push for less spending for some concerns and a blank check for a wall on the Hispanic border but little or none on the White Canadian border…and expect to win.

The fact is that Obama and company didn’t sell the people a bill of goods…Ingraham, Hannity, Rush, Hewitt and their minons did.

The illegal immigration issue that told Hispanics that GOPs didn’t like them anymore than Barry Goldwater’s rhetoric told Blacks that Dems were their supporters was the deciding factor in this last election.  Almost the same amount of Blacks and Whites that voted for Bush in 2004, voted for McCain a couple of weeks ago.

The lost of illegal immigration issue candidates: Santorium, Hayworth, Hunter, even Romney should have taught the so called “base” something.  But the complaning continued..and the piper came a calling.

So what do we do now? Well, most people on the Right believe that after a few years of hard Left politics, the people will be running back to the GOP.  Some, more pragmatic, think that the economy will naturally turn around, Obama backed by the media will take credit and in his second term, bring on the huge socialist programs he talked about.

I happen to believe that Obama won’t make it past his first two years and in 2010, Congress will return to the GOP. 

What?

The one thing the MSM cannot spin is another 9/11 and the American hating terrorist will not be able to resist turning America into another weekly bombing Israel.

The first attack will make EVERYONE, Left and Right, remember the main job of the president…to be commander and chief and keep this nation safe.  In this, Bush has been excellent.  Obama’s ideology prohibits Obama from doing the same.

It will be check mate.

Unfortunately, if the GOP does not kill the debt to the Piper, we will be right back where we are in 2012.

Here are a few suggestions on killing the debt to the Piper in the next two years:

1- Focus (as Medved likes to say, like a laser beam) on the issues that concern ALL Americans, not just those that share your political ideology.  Illegal immigration may be YOUR top concern but in the only poll that counted, this concern was NOT shared by the rest of the voting public.

2-Know the difference between Loyalty and Brainwashing.  Disagreeing isn’t being independent if it’s not accompanied by some acknowledgement of something positive.  And there is a reason that your mama taught you not to air the family’s dirty laundry.

3-The United States is built on compromise and unity.  Both of which is necessary for 50 states with different cultures and people to come together.  The only other way is for one people…one party…one ideology…one type of principle to so outnumber the others as to be in effect, deny dissention. The latter was ok with conservatives–until they found out that it isn’t their people, their party, their ideology that is the majority.  To avoid having to relearn this lesson, conservatives have to learn to close ranks and unite for a common cause.

4-The Piper doesn’t choose who will pay.  I know someone who is dealing with the lost by assuring himself that the nation will go into a dark depression, complete with famine and illness.  I pointed out that a financial setback would affect ALL of us, not just those who voted Democrat.  The next person who complains to you about the damage done by Obama and the Dems, remind them about their dissatisfaction with Bush and the GOPs and ask them if they want to ever lay that debt to the Piper again. 

4-Like all debt rehabilitation, start cold turkey by cutting up those “credit cards” of negative whining.  Don’t you know that your enemies are all too willing to tell you what is wrong with your side; the smart person looks for the positive.  Imagine what Bush and the GOP congress could have accomplished if they at least had their own side backing them up?  Sure they over spent but they also gave the military the ability to win the war on terrorism.  And yes, I would have liked Bush and company to fight back against unfair journalism and got the message out of why we went into Iraq, but Bush kept the tools (patriot act etc.) to continue something that no one thought possible…prevent another attack on American soil.

5-Elitism was rampant on the Right.  How many times have you heard Hewitt ask, what do you do for a living?  How many times has people’s opinion been judged by the degrees they have or the amount of money they earn?  For all the talk about the heartland and average joes, anyone with a different opinion who could not put a title or a certificate of an ivy league school next to their names was dismissed. In fact, anyone who disagreed was condemned as not being a “true” conservative.  The tent that gave Reagan and Bush majorities were not all Right wingers who shared ALL ideals.  In demanding purity of thought, Conservatives drove out Independents, Reagan Democrats, and those willing to put aside most of their Liberal leanings for the war and the courts.  They need to remember that killing the bird in the hand for the two in the bush can get you just…one very dead bird.

6-Let the GOP be who they are today.  The next GOP congress and next GOP White House must be allowed to maneuver among the Dems without constant harrassment from the talk show mafia and their minions.  The bar of conservatism being held in the last 3 years was so high that not even Reagan would have passed. Know that the only way to get that conservative utopia is to convince the rest of America that conservatism has room and tolerance for ALL Americans, not just those who walk the straight and narrow.  Does this mean you give up all your principles and values?  No it means, CHOOSING which values are worth dying over and which can wait for a better hill to fight on.

The Piper will always be paid.  But if we are smart enough, patient enough, and practical enough to understand that you cannot win unless you get to play the game, the next time the Piper comes along collecting, it will be the other side that has to pay.
