I bet if the entire Obama Administration and Democratic Congressional Leadership were sentenced to hang on December 1, 2009, if the stock market were not above 9000 and unemployment were not below 7%, they would become raging tax-cutting pro-business libertarians overnight.
I'm afraid that I would have to disagree.
To those who have adopted the ethical and spiritual mode of parasitism, power over the productive population is an absolute moral necessity.
I cannot repeat and emphasize this enough: For the Left POWER IS LIFE!
Surrendering power is in effect committing suicide and is therefore unthinkable. Faced with a deadline and a dance at the end of rope the parasitic master class will make every effort to identify and destroy the mechanism of their scheduled demise. The only way they will release a lever of power is if we pry their cold and dead fingers from it.
What are your questions on this block of instruction?
