Well folks I’m back from Colorado State Democratic Convention.
Woohoo, interesting experience, but I couldn’t put up with it regularly. As some of you might guess I go mainly as an opportunity to do a little pamphleteering. Unfortunately, once again I got wrapped around other projects I couldn’t extract myself from - so this Memes Courier was another rush project. One side was all about Village at Wolf Creek, backside was two column, one on global warming - fortunately, I didn’t have to do anything original to get those together. The other column was a one day original essay - so it’s probably due for some beating up -
What do you think. . .
Why do Tea Partiers love ‘Atlas Shrugged’?
& the need for Democrats to get out the vote.
Proponents of the Ayn Rand’s school of thought seem to be making great headway with the Tea Party crowd. Seems that the image of the hero’s interests coming first, the public be damned, has become a rallying cry. But, come on. We live in a real physical world and there truly are limitations that if not respected and danced with will destroy us.
Tea Party believers march around in historic costumes, plagiarizing historic statements. Never seeming to appreciate that these old time hero’s were carving out and subduing a huge overwhelming wilderness. That world is gone, lost to the history books as time marches on.
How do we explain to Tea Partiers that we had the Exploration, then the Taming of The Wild West, then Homesteading and spreading our dominion over every acre of land in this country. Corporations and greed came along as we saturated our once wide open and fantastic land.
We can’t live by the battle cries of long dead people who had a wilderness to subdue! Turning one’s back on a smooth running society will certainly doom us in the trying days ahead.
Today we are living in an overpopulated world, that is literally destroying the biological foundation of its own existence and Right Wing folks only dream of destroying a valid President’s tenure and selling their notions of me, me, me plus god, guns’n fear.
Have you (dear voter) hear the NRA’s election campaign? “Trigger The Vote?” Something very scary is in motion and every voting citizen who disagrees with those notions must take the trouble and time to vote this election. Be all the cynical you want - This Is the only time your opinion, vote, is taken seriously, it does make a big difference who gets sent back to Washington. Think its bad now? What if Tea Partiers get into the government they want to destroy?
Some questions we might ask each Democratic voter: Is putting yourself first actually the most important rule? How does supporting chaos prepare us for the incoming challenges barreling down on us and our kids?
Do you believe society runs by more than just profitsüberalles? Do you believe civility needs to be restored? Do you fear what’s in the hearts of Tea Partiers? Convince voters they owe it to their nation’s future to make the commitment to vote in this upcoming “off year” election.
There are probably much better questions you could come up with - please do, get the words out.
