Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Keeping Liberals Out Of Our Bedrooms

The old leftist complaint from the 1960s was that the government was trying to edict and control how a couple should behave in their bedroom, which complaint was largely justified. But now the tables have turned on the leftists, and it's conservatives who are shouting to be left alone concerning bedroom issues.

The big difference between the government intrusiveness then and now is that the intrusiveness of the 1960s was largely societal, mostly a state of mind and not codified in any law, whereas the invasiveness today is part and parcel of the Obama Administration and Obamacare and has the full force (and punishment) of the law, which will be fully enforced by the left so as to make people behave as they dictate.

The current situation of the government edicting that a Catholic employer must, under penalty of law, provide contraceptive care to its employees (or that an insurance company must provide this coverage free of charge) is over the top and must be opposed by all Americans who want to preserve the little liberty left to us under the Obama regime. In fact, we now know that the issue of contraceptive care is a contrived political stance intended to keep the liberal sheep in Obama's camp, because the abortion issue is losing ground with the entire nation and is not as divisive and attractive to leftists as it once was.

So far we've been unsuccessful at keeping government out of our bathrooms, our healthcare, our gas tanks, our foods and diets, our classrooms, our energy supply, our electric generating plants, and they're even controlling the carbon dioxide we exhale as part of their lies about the existence of global warming, but in November of this year we must begin rolling back big government by getting rid of Obama and his cherished Obamacare, abolishing the EPA and the Departments of Energy and Education and repealing the Financial Reform Act, or we will have no liberties at all left to defend.

As an aside, isn't it interesting that it's largely the same age group who protested anything and everything in the 1960s, who are now opposed to liberal attempts to control our lives in the 2010s under Obama? It appears true that the older we get, the wiser and more conservative we become.
