MAYBE LEFT HAS REASON TO FEAR RIGHT
Baldwin. [May 9, 2003]
[Hollywood Investigator] Readers need to know that I am about as right-wing
as one can get. I am pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and pro-family.
My conservative credentials are open for all to see. I was the Florida
State Director of the Moral Majority. I was a member of the Christian
Coalition. I am a Life Member of the Gun Owners of America and an
annual member of the National Rifle Association. I am a Christian
fundamentalist without apology. Beyond that, I am pro-Confederacy.
I am also a firm
believer in constitutional government, and that seems to be where most
conservatives and I part company. It seems that when it comes to
advancing big government, conservatives are as culpable as liberals are,
I don't understand
how one can claim to be a conservative, especially a Christian conservative,
and support massive growth and expansion of the federal government.
Yet, that is exactly what most conservatives are doing today.
and his fellow Republicans are in the process of expanding the power of
the federal government by unprecedented levels. The new Department
of Homeland Security is the embryo of totalitarian government in the United
States. Bush and Company are literally creating a federal police
state in our country, and most conservatives and most Christians actually
seem happy about it.
The May 2 edition
of The New York Times reported, "The Bush administration and leading Senate
Republicans sought today to give the Central Intelligence Agency and the
Pentagon far-reaching new powers to demand personal and financial records
of people in the United States as part of foreign intelligence and terrorism
operations, officials said." This is just the latest such report.
It seems obvious
that Bush and his power-hungry piranhas will not be content until the federal
government has total knowledge and total control over every phase and aspect
of our lives! This administration is the literal fulfillment of George
Orwell's Big Brother! And conservatives are supporting it lock, stock and
In the end, it
doesn't really matter whether it is a liberal government or a conservative
government that puts the chains of tyranny around our necks, we are equally
enslaved! And right now, it is the so-called conservatives in the
Republican Party who are destroying constitutional government and eviscerating
For years, those
on the Left tried to create fear in the hearts of the American people at
the prospect of what would happen if the Right were given control of the federal
government. Well, it seems to me that their fears are warranted.
I 'm on the Right, and conservatives are scaring me to death.
