Lee McGraw (Oct. 7) urged Republicans to let the “middle section of America choose the nominee” to win the election.
He thus champions “compromise” as the reasonable mode for politics.
That ignores the basic conflict that brought out the tea party. Even through a bloody civil war, our nation was guided by the tenets of the Constitution and expanded “from sea to shining sea.”
At the turn of the 20th century, 50 years after Marx’s “Communist Manifesto” was published, his ideas found American supporters. Theodore Roosevelt founded the Progressive Party (Socialist Party won’t fly in Peoria), and President Wilson began working to implement the Progressive agenda.
The 17th Amendment effectively killed the voice of state legislatures, and power shifted to Washington. Since then, we have been compromising across the aisle on how fast we will leave Constitutional government and adopt the Marxist agenda.
President Obama thought that they were close enough to just “close the deal” and move on. That is when the American people began to see the light! And given the choice of “compromising” our way to the Marxist agenda or returning to Constitutional government, the last election showed that people prefer the rule of law and the Bill of Rights.
No, Mr. McGraw, there should be no compromise between the rule of law (the Constitution) and the rule by man (czars and agencies in Washington). One hundred years of compromise has taken us to the threshold of European socialism, banished God from public life, and shown us the true colors of the Marxist agenda.
If we thought “taxed enough already” was worth defending, just imagine how we feel with Obamacare jammed down out throats by midnight Senate maneuvers and our economy approaching depression.
