It's time to get real about the threats to America, and to reject the limp wristed liberal whitewash. Dan Maes of Colorado is made of stronger stuff.
As Maes points out, the biggest threat to the Republic is not terrorism. Terrorism has killed a lot of people, decisive action is needed. More liberties may have to be curtailed, the second amendment being an obvious exception. But the nation will endure and prevail over terrorism. While dealing with terrorism, we have to be alert to the real threat to our country.
Deficits are a threat. If working families have to tighten their belts, so should government. Spending should be cut. Job stimulus should be slashed. Workers on roads and bridges should be laid off. Teachers and police should be fired. Street lights should go out. Hospitals should close. But deficits are not the greatest threat to the nation. While dealing with deficits, we must be diligent about the real threat.
Gays threaten traditional marriage. A constitutional amendment is necessary. If gay people are allowed to get married, there won't be enough left over for everyone else. That's not the actual argument, but Dan Maes can explain it. Stopping gay marriage is vital, but we can't allow it to be a distraction from the real threat to our American way of life.
Immigration needs to be curtailed, especially those immigrants not from Europe. Those who would annex Arizona, attacking ranchers, beheading ordinary citizens, flying across borders to drop babies in a long term scheme to impose a Mexican-Muslim sharia law must be stopped. But foreigners, sadly, will never be eliminated from the world. We will always have to deal with the threat of strangers, but, as Dan Maes explains it, we can't let immigration blind us to the imminent danger to us, our children, and our American democracy.
We have to take action against the real threat to the US ......... Bikes.
Maes is a Republican running for Governor. His opponent, Democratic Mayor (sorry. Democrat Mayor) of Denver John Hickenlooper has his city getting information on bicycle programs from around the world. Which opens us up to the famed United Nations plot to infiltrate our way of traveling. "This is all very well-disguised, but it will be exposed." He admits bikes seem pretty harmless, but "that's exactly the attitude they want you to have."
It seems that for many years, going back to before Bill Clinton became President, Denver has been part of an information exchange, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. Bicycle safety is most of it. "These are very specific strategies," says Maes, "that are dictated to us by this United Nations program that mayors have signed on to."
The spokes of the conspiracy lead everywhere. The wheels are turning dangerously. All of us are in danger of ending up in chains. Bicycle chains.
Thus is the current state of contemporary conservative thought in Colorado.
Huh. Never would have figured Lance Armstrong for a UN operative, but I suppose stranger things have happened.
I wonder if anyone's told him yet that they're bringing an international pro bicycle race to Colorado next year? Probably not.
It would seem to me that the biggest threat to our country comes from those who most vocally proclaim threats to our country: the far-right conservatives dominating both the Tea Party and the Republican Party. These people want to institute social and religious intolerance and enable economic strangulation by concentrated capital under the misleading name of "free market" capitalism. They want to limit freedom in order to supposedly save it. They are a house of contradiction and paranoia I can't wait to see collapse.
