Too many people do not actually understand the political strategy of the Democrats, so let me explain it. They are using the power of the government to entrench themselves, and it is happening on several levels.
Senator Jim DeMint was interviewed earlier this month by Greta Van Susteren and what he revealed is truly telling. He said that there are vacant government buildings and they cannot even get the Democrats to agree to selling them, because they are being maintained by government workers.
Here’s how the system works. Government workers belong to unions. Union leaders and Democrat politicians cooperate to make sure they get excellent pay and cushy benefits, and then these workers pay their union dues, which go toward financing the election campaigns of the Democrats. So even trimming waste would end up trimming union dues and thus trimming their campaign coffers. So it “ain’t gonna happen,” as long as Democrats have any voice in the process.
Then add to that union constituency the “moocher class” (about half the people pay no income taxes), and add to those the illegal aliens and you see why the Democrats are so adamant about all these issues and what keeps them in power even as they are destroying the country.
It’s a clever, nifty skimming operation. And they will squeal like stuck pigs anytime the opposition truly threatens their scheme.
Which is why the times call for a truly courageous Republican in the White House. Sorry, I’m LDS, but it is clear that Mitt Romney doesn’t have that kind of political courage, to begin to undo the entrenched forces in the bureaucracy that are helping keep them in power. Bush didn’t have that kind of political courage. And Newt Gingrich talks a good game right now, but deep down inside you know he doesn’t really have that kind of courage. Michele Bachmann clearly has that kind of courage, as well as Rick Santorum or Herman Cain.
