Trying to understand those that follow the left....

This is a great blog post that says what I have been thinking, and since I couldn't say it any better myself I am going to repost it with permission.
Here is something I’ve never understood… Conservatism is based on the beliefs of our forefathers, correct? We believe, as they did, in small government, individuality, freedom, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, correct? The forefathers founded this country with amazing insight into what makes a country run successfully. What came forth was a country that grew to be the world’s strongest and most powerful economy and the lone superpower on the planet.This is from a great blog called The Sanatorium of Conservatism.
So since Conservatism has been around since the foundation of our country and those ideas have made us the economic success that we are (were), isn’t it a little odd that an entire party’s platform has evolved to be the EXACT opposite of ours in every way, shape, and form? The Democratic Party has come to stand against EVERYTHING that made this country great. Why?
Conservatism has a proven track record of success. Liberalism has a proven track record of failure. It is a complete and undeniable fact.
Look at the country right now. California has been driven into the ground by liberals. Michigan is sinking quickly. New York is a mess. All three of those states have been driven to the brink of bankruptcy by liberals and yet their blind followers keep re-electing the same idiots over and over. When you follow a party blindly because they promise you things and then fail to look at the actual results, you are sheep.
Sadly, the majority of people out there aren’t informed enough to see what’s really happening. All they know is what the liberal whackos that run the mainstream media tell them to think. They don’t see the government taking over GM and Chrysler. They don’t see Obama throwing money at GE (very liberal company and owners of MSNBC, one of the many liberal propaganda machines) under the guise of “modernizing our medical IT infrastructure”. They don’t see the Democrats in congress pushing all of their pet projects through while calling it “stimulus”. They don’t notice that after all of the money we’ve pumped into this economy to get it started, it’s showing no signs whatsoever of recovering.
It’s going to take something very drastic to wake the American people out of their current slumber. I have no doubt, however, that something drastic WILL happen. Obama is being too reckless and irresponsible with our economy. He is meddling in the free market when he has no right and it WILL blow up in his face.
I firmly believe that 2010 is going to be a historical year. I believe we WILL win back the House AND the Senate. I think the spirit of the American People is too strong for a Socialist like Obama to extinguish. The disaster that was Jimmy Carter brought about the genius that was Ronald Reagan. I believe we are on a similar course now. The disaster of Obama will bring a new great Conservative leader to us. Of this I have NO doubt.
