As brutal as President Obama's presidency has been Republicans can't seem to capitalize

It is observed that ‘a corrupt society has many laws,’ and I know not whether it is not equally true that an ignorant age has many books.

ESSEX, Vt — We could inquire as to what Barack Obama’s presidency communicates in these years of brutal disappointment, and waning American entheos.

Still, we would ourselves be equally prudent to inquire too, what Republican opposition to Barack Obama communicates in our time of much needed recipe from the banal and the bureaucratic. Neither is competence an attribute that comes to mind when lingering on Republicans and the Grand Old Party’s thematic and political intentions within American polity. Fringes rule. Confusion increases, and civil liberties for Americans, by Americans (protected through the agency of government in stark, imaginative Madisonian terms) continue to atrophy.

Without an attractive alternative to the nihilistic, progressive statism that seems to sway back and forth over our nation’s cultural dialogue, one approaches the feeling of the Israelites in the wilderness - some of us, for sure, know how that turned out.

But it’s worse still.

Two weeks ago, Demorcats proved the enemy of freedom of choice (yet again) when Barack Obama not only found something not broke, but worthy of his type of fixing, which includes, per usual, more and more government regulation, when it comes to the WorldWideWeb.

Add to that Obama’s determination to continue to attack the second amendment, through executive order, and our programme for this evening increases in its disgrace. Now when Republicans have attacked freedom of choice in whatever variety that maybe, we never, of course, hear the end of it. That is based primarily on Democrats' ability to ride an issue with no gas, or even little fuel, creating an issue where non previously existed.

We need not look further than the 2012 election where Democrats' successfully made Mitt Romney the second coming of Adolf Hitler with a bee in his bonnet for women. But utter silence greeted Democrats' narrowing of our civil liberties by the so-called Party of Lincoln. This has true particularly under the stewardship of Barack Obama. To support Republicans can be difficult. Support for any political entity with a good deal of guts missing, is arduous. Even maddening. But it still appears humorous to me that Republicans can wade, even linger, at this picture and then pretend to be surprised by all these presidential elections they cannot seem to pull a victory in.

So we have an ironic circumstance: the protesters of the 1960s have embraced, grown, big government thereby restricting individual liberties, and the party and political movement that gave us that contra-ideoology - from Goldwater, to Mr. Buckley, to Dr. Milton Freidman - seems incapable of any quality critque that ignites the American people’s imagination for something decidedly different in our polity. That something is a stern defense of freedom of choice - from the individual to the community; an independence from government, rather than a dependancy on government.
