Even the best supper bes: But they choose to not be cured
People who suffer from BES (Bush Euphoria Syndrome) are unable to ascribe to George W. Bush any negative qualities, errors or other attributes that are less positive than “worthy of our support” (worship) or “God’s burning Bush” sent to us for our national salvation. Unfortunately for many of these poor deluded souls, they have forgotten what their heroes in the “alternative” media used to use for a measuring stick of our President: ACTIONS.
You will recall that Rush Limbaugh, Chief Bush Waterboy, used to say of President William Clinton, “Watch what he does, not what he says.” Good advice, indeed, as the man was bad for America and, I believe, himself. (And he still measures Clintons and other Democrats by that standard. Of course they’re not unlike practically everybody elected to office in Washington, District of Criminals.)
However, water carriers for the current President, GW Bush, no longer use that standard by which to judge the President. Now they listen to what he says, and they sigh, and they fawn and they nearly faint with euphoria over the code words that he uses such as, “God” and “Krahst” and “Bless.”
Completely lost is the revulsion that was felt when the President, then Clinton, would do something- anything- that was unConstitutional, whether some new action or maintaining or expanding extant government programs or agencies that are clearly prohibited by the Constitution. These same people were relieved that the freedom-limiting legislation known as McCain-[Darth]Feingold was bottled up by a Republican legislature because they were certain that the eeeeeeeeeeevil Dr. Klinton would sign the bill should it reach his desk. And doubtless he would have.
However, the savior, the “burning Bush” as he is literally called by some, while campaigning for President said that he would not sign McCain-[Darth]Feingold if it reached his desk. Well, he lied. He signed it and, despite the fact that it is clearly unConstitutional, a majority of a small group of duferati in black robes upheld it. And now we’re subject to it. Americans who are appalled at Judicial Activism should be no less appalled at President Bush for failing to stop Bush-McCain-[Darth]Feingold than they are for failing, as Chief Law Enforcement Officer of this nation, to stop the slaughter of unborn babies which is abetted by equally egregious pretended acts of Judicial righteousness.
What was the reaction to his failure to, from a Bush campaign commerical, I’m sure, “Stand up, as one man, to big-government, liberals, stopping their attempts to destroy America and our freedom,” by those who were taken in by his religious code-words? I quote many Bush supporters (many as sufferers of BES) who, though bewildered, gave the man a pass, saying, “I don’t know why Bush did that.” We have a local, allegedly conservative, talk-radio host who, regarding Bush-McCain-Feingold, called DarthFeingold every heinous epithet he could think of in the matter and then called Bush’s signing of the legislation a “mistake” as though Bush’s pen fell over and signed the bill by itself.
Most who had FAITH in him have not lost their FAITH in him, and continue to serve him today, believing him to be a Christian appointed by God to save our nation. And maybe he is; God is reputed, after all, to work in mysterious ways and His ways are MUCH higher than mine and His thoughts also are not mine.
But I’ll tell you this right now, for what it’s worth: I heard the name by which you must be saved, Jesus, watching the Teletubbies children’s television program, but have never heard the name come from the lips of my President. But, then, even if I did, I’d still watch his actions and judge them primarily by the same standard I use for judging the actions of all elected officials and for judging all governmental action: The United States Constitution.
It is evident to all who view and judge the actions of the Parties Demoncrat and Republican’t that there is now a vacuum in our nation- in our government- that is shaped like the United States Constitution. Until this past Saturday I would have considered it wise to end an article like this with a recommendation to take a look at the Constitution Party and consider voting for candidates who support their platform. However, despite the opportunity that the self-destruction going on by the Democrat-Republican-one-party-system presents, I have not seen any reason, if the Wisconsin Constitution Party is an accurate measure, to believe that their competence matches their understanding of the Constitution and their desire to see it enforced, both of which are obviously heart-felt and deep.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits [actions]. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Matt. 7:15-20).
