The war between the parties

What constitutes a restaurant? An elegant room, smart waiters, a choice wine cellar and superior cooking. Simple enough. What constitutes religion? The relation to that which human beings regard as holy, sacred, spiritual or divine. Complicated enough. Who is without prefix, without suffix and without apology (a self-description of Sam Rayburn a Democrat member of the House of Representatives for 48 years and speaker for 17 years)? A liberal, of course, who is on parade beginning tonight in Denver at their 2008 Presidential convention. Look for lies and hypocrisy camouflaged. by flag waving, complements and euphemistic, meaningless speeches. Personally, I wish the next 5 evenings could be passed by re-tellings of America’s early wars. 1702-1713 was the Queen Anne’ War, second in a series of wars fought between Great Britain and France in North America for control of the continent. Eventually French forces and their savage Indian allies lost to Britain. In 1755, the French Acadians in Nova Scotia were exiled to French Louisiana’s swamp lands at the start of the French and Indian War. The Battle of Quebec, 1759, in this war marked the fall of Montreal, a British victory encompassing the death of both French Montcalm and British Wolfe on the plains of Abraham. Exciting stuff. A third war involved the Battle of Quebec, 1775, in America’s quest for independence from Great Britain. Gen. Montgomery and Col. Arnold failed to capture Quebec and Canada. Good thing too since at that time our vision outreached our grasp of reality. Which leads me back to the liberal Democrats, plunking down a whopping carbon footprint in Denver this week in contrast with their claims to the contrary. Their restaurants must serve organic, colorful politically correct selections. They will invoke worship of their religion called environmentalism. Whether anti or pro, every item on their agenda, without apology, will call for increased spending, higher taxes and additional restrictions on our liberties. The war between Obama and McCain - like any dispute to the death between ideological rivals over prime turf - must end with a victor and a vanquished. Politics is a deadly, serious business.
