Such seems the Destiny of those who seek The Power of Control over Others.
There has been much talk lately that Progressive Liberals in both parties will take serious hits this Election cycle. I, as you, have learned to not believe anything until it’s over… and it’s never over. I will proudly remain a Cynic. So I’ll reserve any hopeful prognostication as it has been 50/50 for me in the past. But there is an interesting phenomena occurring before our eyes.
It appears that the Socialists in the U.S. have found themselves face-to-face with the Omnipotent Paradox.
By Creating and then placing Socialized Medicine before all other concerns they may be facing a Stone they cannot lift.
But let’s look at it from their point of view.
Single Payer, Government Run, Medicine is the Crown Jewel of Socialism. And, considering they have achieved All of the other goals lined out by Marx, Lenin and their Fellow Travelers it makes sense everything else should be set aside in favor of installing and then protecting this Enormous Victory. One must also weigh the level of success Leftists have enjoyed over the last 100-years to fully understand the confidence they exhibit. Not only have they been able to reach every goal they set their sights on, but the “loyal opposition” has become the Concession Party… Opposition in Name Only. Their supposed enemies are differentiated not by Ideology, but by the color of their Tie.
So… Why shouldn’t they believe they are Omnipotent?
Given this History, who wouldn’t “take the shot” to close the deal on a Socialist United States? If I were a Marxist, I would…
The result, however, seems to have been the creating of something larger than the Progressives can control. And they may be rethinking their Omnipotence and wondering if Hubris hasn’t raised its ugly head.
Obama Care, AKA the Affordable Care Act, is finding no quarter, in any Quarter. In fact, it is fomenting the closest thing to a Pitchfork Rebellion the U.S. has seen.
Is The Forgotten Man learning, or re-learning, what this Country was Founded Upon and Why?
If so, it could be the beginning of the end for the Red Menace. It could signal the unwinding of over 100 years of Progressive thought and code.
It might be the thread sticking out of the Ugly Sweater… waiting to be pulled.
The only question is Who is going to pull it?
It Certainly will not be the Democrats.
It Certainly will not be The Establishment Republicans.
Let’s pretend Someone is Brave enough to pull it, will those pulling fall victim to Hubris resulting from a perception of Omnipotence?
They surely will if we grow complacent again…
Because we are All Human.
And I’m a Proud Cynic.
Drunk, but Proud.
