Pre-1776 Democrats
February 20th, 2006 9:38 pm

Senator Feingold, upholding the esteem and prestige of the Senate by reducing himself to being a leftwing blogger got the kookdom all excited earlier this month when he trotted out a catchy little meme that was sure to guarantee Democrat victories until the second coming of Jesus. That crafty and oh so eloquent phrase, was:

“The President is living in a pre-1776 world”

Trying to manufacture a campaign that resembled the actual fact that “Democrats are living in a pre-September 11th, 2001 world,” Feingold tried to liken Republicans to those who opposed a free and liberated America. But let’s just look at the parallels between today’s politicians and the pre-1776 world.

The Quartering Act of 1765 required Americans to sacrifice their own saftey and liberty for the enemy’s troops. Al Gore would’ve probably traveled to England to “deplore the treatment of enemy soldiers” by noncompliant Americans who refused to provide room and board.

Bill Clinton would say those killed in the Boston Massacre simply “had it coming.” And Jimmy Carter would write an Op-Ed in The Boston Gazette entitled, “Don’t Punish the British.”

The Stamp Act of 1765 was handed down by the English Parliament forcing citizens to pay more taxes to a government body that didn’t represent their interests. Hillary Clinton would simply explain this as “tak[ing] things away from you on behalf of the common good.”

As the British troops were gearing up for their attacks, John Kerry would be suggesting to the First Continental Congress that the colonies should just give them more gun powder while Bill Clinton would be offering them bigger muskets with which to attack the colonies.

Howard Dean would call George Washington’s leadership of the Continental Army “reckless” and blame his leadership for “the most dangerous administration in my lifetime.”

The one shining difference between the current climate and the pre-1776 world… is that there wasn’t a San Francisco in those days from which we’d be hearing calls to disband the militia.

And like Thomas Paine wrote in Common Sense, “We have it in our power to begin the world anew…America shall make a stand, not for herself alone, but for the world,” George W. Bush understands what we’ve been called to do in this historic time and says, “Our enemies send other people’s children on missions of suicide and murder. They embrace tyranny and death as a cause and a creed. We stand for a different choice, made long ago, on the day of our founding. We affirm it again today. We choose freedom and the dignity of every life.”Maybe Senator Feingold’s right. Maybe his party needs to be reminded of pre-1776 thinking and how real Patriots chose to heed the call of liberty and freedom while others wanted to help our enemies.
