Colorado to be a RED state in 2012!
Okay, I’ve been exposed. Yes, I admit it. My gazillions of words chronicling political duplicity, the tyranny of the current administration, the lies of the Left, and the dysfunctional personalities of many, many people, are simply my ploy to get on as a congressional staffer. URP! Some bile just came up. Excuse me while I clear my mouth.
Truly, the job of a congressional staffer is perfect for ReaganGirl. The job description fits me to a tee:
Yep, that’s the job for me, fer sure. I’m packing up my belongings, my teenagers, my pets, my hard drives, and my books, and leaving beautiful Western Colorado; its red rocks, soaring peaks, rivers, wildlife, open sky, nice people, beautiful roadways, affordable lifestyle, and heading for the Hill. In Western Colorado it takes an hour to travel 80 miles. In DC–I’ve been there a few times–it takes 80 minutes to travel 20 miles. Yep, I’m ready to sacrifice the beauty, freedom, and rugged individualism of my life for a job on the Hill. NOT!
It seems that I may have touched a raw nerve or two with some recent posts on ReaganGirl.com as well as Tea Party.org, Colorado Peak Politics, Peoples Press Collective, The Daily Pamphlet, The American Thinker, The Foundry and other Internet news sites. Be that as it may, some small minded hooligans have taken umbrage at my reporting and are spreading horrible, horrible rumors about my personal conduct. I am being accused of–hold onto your butts–angling for a job as a congressional staffer. AAAAAUUUUUGH! The horror! I am beside myself that this has been exposed! Truth be told–and no offense to my friends here and in DC who work as congressional staffers–I would rather have my head wrapped in duct tape and be dipped in a hill of fire ants than endure the limitations on my speech that are required when working as for a United States Congressman. No offense to my friends who are now, or who have been congressmen, but speech is limited because if you work for a politician, you also represent that politician. I would last as a congressional staffer for approximately 3 days, 7 hours, and 15 1/2 minutes, because it would take me that amount of time to publicly declare my opinions about this congressman or that, about this legislation or that, or about my fear and loathing of the Obama Administration.
I really like free speech. I might reconsider my flight to DC and stay put, enjoying my poking, prodding, and raw nerve touching, because it is so much freakin’ fun!
Silly rabbits. I have no D.C. ambitions. But I know some who do, and who feel cheated because those ambitions were repudiated, as if their Capitol Hill prize was somehow ripped from their hands.
But as for me, why would I leave this? (And this is just my commute to work!)
The shining city on a hill grows dim. In the past it has shined forth because it is made distinct by the inky darkness that enshrouds it. The shining city on a hill gleams not against a field of twinkling stars but out from a gloomy haze; nebulae of ignorance, bondage, and coercion. And why does it grow dim when it should appear ever brighter against the pressing darkness? Because the bearers of the light are extinguishing it with infighting, slanders, schemes and plots to satisfy personal vendettas, ambitions, duplicity, and greed.
There are those who say they love the Constitution, but who act in ways that endanger it. They purport to want to restore America to its Constitutional roots and Federalist system, but their acts bear the fruit of victory for those who will utterly destroy the Constitution if they gain power. There are those, who like Ron Paul, tout Constitutional principles, but whose political activities lead to Liberal Democrat victories is key races across the country. Their ideology clouds their common sense, and so, in many cases, these players serve to corrupt and destroy the very Constitutional restraints on big government that they profess to advocate.
The shining city on a hill has always been lit with the light of love; love of country, love of liberty, love of the glorious blessings of God’s creation, love for one another. But the light of that love is being snuffed out as adversaries deceive patriots into believing that the only way to restore the Republic is to destroy the Republican Party. This is a lie. And it is the work of small minds; wrathful and insecure players who tout the Founding Documents, but who use the system devised by our Founders to further their own petty, selfish, and sometimes rash agendas. The light grows dim because the inhabitants of the shining city on a hill are fighting among their own, occupying their time with destroying the reputations, efforts, and candidacies of one another. The light is dimming because the bellows that would nourish a bright flame have been abandoned, and the dwellers of the shining city are failing to tend to the tender and fragile flame of liberty. Unite and sustain the light of the shining city, or divide against ourselves, and watch liberty die.
