Next to liberals, Republican radio talk show personalities like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, among others, are some of the biggest hypocrites in the world. They espouse conservative values but when given the chance to promote conservatism over liberalism, they opt for liberalism.
Anyone who thinks that Willard “Mitt” Romney, Newt “Pocket-lining” Gingrich, or Rick “Raise-the-deficit” Santorum are even remotely more conservative than Ron Paul hasn’t been paying attention.
With our republic currently going through a meltdown and desperately in need of a complete gutting and overhaul in order to keep it from crashing into oblivion, these supposed champions for America and its people choose expedience over prudence.
They also refuse to entertain any other alternatives for turning our country around other than just backing the most electable Republican hack during each election cycle. They do this knowing full well that one of our nation’s greatest founding fathers advocated revolution over tyranny if the time came that government became too big or intrusive.
In contrast to the founders of our nation, many of whom risked their lives, money, and property to break away from England, these airwave gabbers, who fancy themselves as heroes of the people, risk nothing but instead live in security, opulence, and prestige.
The sad truth is: If Republican talk show hosts can maintain the status quo, they’ll keep getting their fat paychecks.
If the likes of Limbaugh and Hannity, with their large audiences, would only get behind a formula for significant, positive change, and get out of the rut of primarily supporting the most electable Republican, we might have a chance of turning this country around without having to resort to extreme measures.
Instead, these people have a history of telling their listeners that if they would just elect Republicans in mass, the country will be fine.
Unfortunately, the facts don’t bear out that assertion. For the past 60 years, the country, under both Democratic and Republican leadership, has been steadily drifting both morally and fiscally to the left.
Now these same people are trying to convince us again that if we just elect any of the current GOP front runners (except Ron Paul) the country can get back on the right track after four years of Obama and his Marxist, capitalistic-killing policies.
If winning and beating Obama at all costs is their primary motivation, then electing another moderate liberal like Romney, Gingrich, or Santorum will ultimately be at the expense of the country and the American people.
