From Your Secret Allies on the Right
October 8, 2002
Yes, that's right. You heard me. We are allies.
I am one of liberalism's secret new allies. There are many
of us; millions of us in fact. We are denizens of the Right...
the true Right - the Third Party Right. The Pat Buchanan Right..the
Libertarian Right..of half a dozen other small parties. We're
not the right-wing of the neoconservative, snotty, elitist,
oil-sucking Republican Party. We're the real conservatives...
and we have more in common with you now than we ever will
with the loathsome imperialist jackboots who are squatting
in our White House.
Most of us were Republicans once. We laughed at Clinton,
a lot. We helped demonize him in the Press. I have a confession
to make: Even though I never liked Clinton and I don't like
him now, I wish he was still in office. I miss him. No, I
am not being sarcastic.
Bill Clinton was not a warmonger..he was not a second coming
of Napoleon Bonaparte, minus 80 IQ points. We now have a silly,
illiterate clown who rose to power through family nepotism
and he's our Commander In Chief... and he is dragging us all
into a Third World War. A world war that will be paid for
in blood, by our children.
I, at least, have the distinction of saying that I did not
vote for the clown. By the time his "election" rolled around,
I had already turned on the GOP. That's how it was for many
of us...we gave our last sympathy vote to Viagra Bob in 1996
- then watched in disgust as the Republican Party nominated
a perfumed princeling of the Bush family dynasty. You see,
most of us never even liked his Dad - that's what made an
international celebrity out of yapping little Ross Perot.
There are other reasons, however, good reasons, why we broke
with the Republican Party. We don't like shadow governments.
We don't like any curtailments on the Bill of Rights. We don't
like foreign entanglements, and we don't like the United States
playing Globocop. We don't think the men and women of our
Armed Forces should become action figures for indolent, spoiled
politicians to play with. We don't think national policy should
be shaped by Rush Limbaugh.
What we have now in common with the Left, most of all, can
be quickly encapsulated in the old phrase "The enemy of my
enemy is my friend." Remember World War II... many different
kinds of folk united against a common enemy.
When the Republicans rammed through the USA-PATRIOT act,
it was a formal declaration of war on the American People.
Most Republican voters were not paying attention - but we
were. And we are now fighting mad.
We want to join you in an effort to repeal the institutionalized
fascism that has come out of the "War On Terror."
We want to castrate Big Brother. We want to help you un-elect
as many national GOP leaders as possible. We want to end this
foolish military adventurism.
So the next time you start to yell at the TV set and call
Pat Buchanan a xenophobe, or call Harry Browne a dirty name,
remember that people of their political sympathies are on
your side - and looking forward to the downfall of the modern
Republican Party. The gauntlet has been thrown, and I can
assure you... we all despise the Bushies.
We have our own agenda and you have yours, but do us all
a favor and please don't lump us in with the "Springtime For
Hitler" party. If the Democrats kick GOP behinds, royally,
in the next elections... we won't be out there sobbing into
our Starbucks Latte, like the Ann Coulter Pin-Up Calendar
crowd. We'll be laughing.
For the sake of our country, please make it so.
We can always squabble with you later.
