It’s Time for Liberal Politicians to Apologize

July 18, 2010

Alan Simpson

The debt commission leaders, Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson, have issued comments stating that federal revenue is fully consumed by three programs; Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. These are institutionalized bureaucracies and, therefore, the costly impact of the combination is not surprising news.

Since these unconstitutional entitlements were developed, expanded, and protected by those on the left-wing of the political spectrum, they should be held accountable for their excessive expense as well as the drain they have placed upon current and future growth of our Country.

At their creation and during their decades long existence, there have generally been politicians who questioned their hyper-inflation growth. At all times, these brave individuals were shouted down with epithets. Now, the chickens have come home to roost. Liberal apologies should go to:

Daniel Moynihan, PhD, sociologist and scholar who, in the 1960’s warned us against the expansion of welfare programs with the awareness that they would do more harm than good. Although he was a Democrat who had worked in the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon Administrations he was attacked as a “bigot” by the liberal wing. They ignored his admonishment and rammed through their pet project.

President George W. Bush who, recognizing that the Social Security program was going off the tracks, chose to offer a model that would enable individuals to invest their earnings in their own private portfolio. It would fully protect those who wished to stay enrolled with the current model. Typically, he was attacked personally. Democrats were effective in scaring and convincing the elderly that the result would be to toss them off current programs.

Any Democrat, Republican, or independent representative who merely wanted an open cost/benefit analysis of these entitlements that create bureaucracy and remove personal responsibility from the citizens of America.
Since the liberals are always so anxious for individuals and America to apologize to the world for perceived slights and historical actions, it seems fitting that they should be held to the same standard.

    I do not want anything including an apology from a progressive liberal socialist politician these days except to see them put out of office. An apology is truly little compensation to all Americans for the outrageous damage they have done to the soul of the greatest society on earth. But let’s not get too carried away in the finger pointing, there were plenty of “supposed” conservative Republicans that over the years gave up on conservative beliefs in our Constitutional Republic and decided to be politically correct and “go along with the Social Justice” crowd to get the votes. That support added a lot to the damage and gave “cover” to the progressive liberal socialists to keep up the destruction of America for years and years.

    So, now what is next…more finger pointing or some honest action? I have to inform the CCGOP and the RNC in general the voters want ACTION and if you are just giving same old lip service “politics” you will be called-out and put out of office too. Guys, the political “game playing” is over. If you want to be the leaders of restoring America to its base beliefs then show Americans that the GOP is the only hope for a rebirth of a strong, freedom loving America that believes in true justice under the laws of the Constitution, not social justice or just get the heck out of the way because you will be irrelevant! The moment of opportunity is now here TODAY for Conservative Republicans to again become true Patriots! You get one shot, do not blow it!

      Thanks for reading the article and providing an intelligent response.

      My comments were meant to be a bit sarcastic in regard to the emotional tirades that liberals offer in response to an honest discussion of key issues.

      This conservative could not agree more with you as it relates to the disappointment I felt during the 6 year (2000-2006) Republican control of the Presidency and the Congress. The spending by the House / Senate, and the lack of a serious veto strategy by President Bush sullied our reputation for fiscal responsibility. Clearly, they were not conservatives.

      Let’s hope that, if we get the chance once again, the new Repulican leaders will not include RINO’s.

        Stew…we have to pray, and not hope, for true Constitutional conservative representation to become the majority in Washington, because the country and its economy can no longer withstand the liberal socialist pounding being administered daily by the ultra left Obama Regime. Keep waking people up, we are running out of time!

        Hi……

        Thanks for the comment.

        We can either feel optimism or pessimism.

        In the past few days I have come to believe that the Tea Party Conservative movement has turned a corner. The NAACP attack, which I think is being prompted by the leftist Democrats, is a kind of admission that our opposition is desperate.

        Let’s stay calm, resolute, and on the offensive as we walk through the false veil of liberal litigation and lies.

        And, yes, you are correct about the solution to our current problems. Let’s hope that when we regain power, it will be the true believers of conservative thought leading the Republican elite in a direction that is focused upon the principles that the Founding Fathers created for the United States of America.

        All the best,

        Stew
