When I took this job as a writer about Culture War issues seven Terran years ago I never thought I would end up doing so much political writing. That is likely because I’m a Liberal and social issues to me are personal choices that people make not planks in a political platform. Offering people choice is not destroying anyone’s “way of life” yet a vocal minority forcing people to conform to outdated values, that they themselves treat like used toilet paper, clearly is.

Clint_Eastwood_-_Hang_Them_High

Karl Rove the master puppeteer of the George W Bush White House is now working for American Crossroads and has begun the great purge that will eventually reduce the GOP to a regional party. If the GOP jettisons its TEA Party elements this near permanent minority opposition will begin to move the party to the center and allow it to return to what it was in the pre-Nixon era of the 1960s when a moderate Republican was less rare than a unicorn. The goal for Rove is a difficult one to achieve; he must keep as many conservatives as possible within the party while assuring the loosest of cannons are cast a drift. Cut too deep and you will have a mass exodus of the bigots and the religious zealots who the GOP have depended on since 2000 to stave off irrelevancy.

Now enter Ashley Judd into the 2014 Senate race in Kentucky. Rand Paul is already in the Senate for that state and their likely isn’t much time left on Mitch McConnell’s dance card [how McConnell has survived being the only gay GOP Senator for this long has puzzled me for a decade and a half.]. There’s very little legitimate opposition for an intelligent woman with the financial backing like Judd would have. The ad above is running now because it is known that in Kentucky the Democrats have a voter registration advantage and that McConnell’s star is fading. But after the horrible failure of TEA Party fabvorites like Todd Akin in Missouri and Richard Mourdock in Indiana the last thing Rove and his GOP Establishment fat cats want to see is someone with diarrhea of the mouth taking on a beloved movie star. The terror for McConnell is so great that he has embraced the TEA Party in an effort to keep from being primaried in 2014. While in our polling Judd beats McConnell 52 to 48; Judd trounces the TEA Party favorite Rep. Thomas Massie 62-37.

alice tea party

And it is by being primaried that the GOP will be cut to ribbons. I can save the GOP right now with a simple explanation. Stop forcing candidates, incumbents, that can win and represent you well on 70% of your values issues out of races in the primaries simply because they have made a statement in defense of gay marriage, or have agreed with Obama on some issue or feel that a woman has the right to choose to have an abortion. America has more serious business than the settled issue of a woman’s right to choose. That battle is lost–move on. It is too late to appeal to minorities that ship has sailed because in the next ten presidential election years that minority as a group will be the majority, the voting majority. In that same forty years, by the year 2052, the base of 55 to 90 year old white men and women who remember back to a time when none of what has taken place in the last 13 years [a destructive terror attack on a major US city, a state legalizing gay marriage, a state legalizing marijuana, a black man being elected President, the Red Sox winning the World Series . . .] appeared possible outside of a Hollywood production will be dead or of such a small number that the Right will be more adequately described as the Center.

Rove has thrown a few spitballs at the TEA Party over the past few weeks and this is absolutely necessary. When he’s gone and I mean by the 2052 election what will the face of the establishment GOP look like? If there is a GOP it will have to look more like Marco Rubio and sound nothing like Allen West or Michele Bachmann to have survived. Either way for us this is a win win. If the GOP becomes a small but more centrist party this is the best outcome for America. If the TEA Party becomes the third party we see rising out of the ashes of a 2014 shellacking by the Democrats that gives them the Liberals the House and the Senate for Obama’s last two years then you have at least thirty years of uninterrupted Democratic Party Presidents. Keep in mind in the first half of this forty years Rush Limbaugh the last great voice for conservative ignorance and fear will too be dead [Limbaugh is currently 62 years old.–F.S.] and when that voice is silent the game will be over for the Right as it exists today.

I just had to wait for the right time to post this and since tomorrow is the end of the Mayan Long Count I thought it would be an apropos time to mark the end of Conservative political power in the American government with a graphic that says it all.

As you likely have noticed, the Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork has taken a well deserved break from terrestrial matters over the past few weeks. This respite will continue for a brief period as we shift from American political and social matters, which I as Editor-in-Chief feel are decided at least for the near term, to focus on the larger and more pressing matters that affect all of Terra’s population. The new and more global vision of Hell’s leading daily newspaper will debut on the day many feel the Mayans predicted your planet would cease to exist, 21 December 2012.

Until then our writers will post opinion pieces from time to time about the subjects of their choice. I begin this soft period of transition with a return to American social and political matters. I read this morning at Blogs for Victory a post by Mark Edward Noonan that made me think very deeply about the future of American politics. Mr Noonan, who is keen to make predictions without taking all the myriad forces at play, stares into his conservative crystal ball yet again. This time he looks toward his latter years and even predicts the age of his death, 77 in 2041, and the cause, liberalism:

I’ll have died at the age of 77 of an easily treatable disease which I could not get care for because the National Health Service didn’t have sufficient resources to treat me before the disease went too far.

I’ll have been living from the age of 67 forward in a one-room, government-supplied retirement home which I was forced in to because given the way the economy developed I was never able to secure enough wealth to replace the home I lost in the wake of the 2008 financial crash.

My 401k had been destroyed years previously. First by a government program to start taxing it, secondly by the massive inflation which was necessary to get our annual deficit to become 15% of GDP.

While I officially retired at the age of 67 and started to collect my Social Security (worth about 50% less than it is today because during that bout of inflation the government kept insisting, in spite of rising food and fuel prices, that inflation was non-existent and thus SS payments remained constant in dollar amounts while going down in actual value), I actually quit work at the age of 60 because I found out that by a varied combination of government benefits, I could actually get more income by sitting on my duff than by working 40 hours a week. At that point, it stopped bothering me so much that a cheeseburger costs $12 because Uncle Sam was picking up the tab. Until, that is, they banned the purchase of cheeseburgers in the interests of cutting National Health Service costs.

I did get some exercise from the age of about 57 on because the government mandates on fuel efficiency priced me out of automobile ownership. This resulted in a great deal of walking on my part as the inefficient bus system provided by government didn’t get me to where I needed to be when I needed to be there. I moved out of the suburbs and in to the city center because at least there were stores closer to home: on the other hand, I had to pay higher prices for the basics because government policy was to forbid “big box” stores in the area because they provided “unfair” competition to the small shops.

I found as I entered my 50′s that food was harder to obtain – the price kept rising and there kept being less of it. Various agricultural policies were taking more farm land out of production while various taxes were making the production and consumption of things like beef out of the question. I was given Supplementary Food Insurance which allowed me to buy whole grain bread, government cheese and all the potatoes I could eat.

I got a boost to my health as I gave up cigarette smoking when the banned it outdoors, where I did most of my smoking. Also, even buying generic smokes at the Indian reservation was running me $80 a carton. On the other hand, I found out that ‘Capulco Gold Lights were an admirable substitute, though they did make things a bit hazy; on the plus side, I was permitted to fire up a joint even indoors at work!

My initial reaction to this post was that Noonan was suffering from eating to many sour grapes. However, there is something more deeper and more telling about this post than first met my eyes. The writer is clearly anguished that his worldview has been rejected, in clear electoral terms, by million of people in the United States of America. Terrans like Mr Noonan believed that the election of 2008 and the attendant social struggles that have been championed by the Democratic Party [steps toward single payer health care, tax relief for the middle class, gay rights, worker’s rights, women’s reproductive rights and pay equality] was an historical outlier driven by the desire for minorities and liberal voters to elect the first man of color to the highest office in the land. They did that and nearly immediately forces in the conservative power camp lept into the fray with hundreds of millions of dollars to give birth to the TEA Party which was able to disguise bigotry behind a hood of lowering taxes for the middle class.

Of course, it is well realized now that this was not only a waste of treasure by the Kochs and Adelsons of American conservatism but also a group delusion on the part of their lesser heeled followers. All of the lies failed in the end for the conservatives refused to admit the clearest of truths–their numbers are smaller than the numbers of the coalition built by liberals. Plainly, the right does not know how to attract blacks, gays, Latinos or women to their ranks because their policies have a negative impact on these groups and they will continue to do so as they triple down and move more to the Right.

Noonan believes he will die from the lack of health care to which he can be exposed due to ObamaCare in 2041 at the age of 77. More than likely Mr Noonan will die of stupidity and fear long before that if he continues to believe that his worldview has a national following large enough to have a majority in both houses of Congress. Noonan is angry that his beliefs have been rejected by the voting public and to be fair we likely would have seen a similar reaction from liberals had Obama lost the election. That die has been cast; the American people have spoken and Noonan and the Religious Right and the TEA Party bigots still are far more free than virtually anyone in opposition politically anywhere else on Terra.

The suffering for Mr Noonan must be horrible. His wishes of a Cold War apocalypse where his End Times beliefs would come to fruition were dashed so he joined in the worship of conservatism’s only deity–Ronald Reagan. Years later his own religion was exposed as corrupt as countless priests were found guilty of the sexual abuse of children not only abroad but in the United States. Then comes the criminal behavior of the Bush administration post 9/11 to restrict freedom strictly out of fear that corporations and the wealthy would flee and America bombarded with terror attacks. Now Noonan is staring down a recovery for which a liberal government can take credit with a man of color at the helm. These are dark times for the man who feels that America is devolving into communism when actually what is happening is America is becoming just socialist enough to assure that capitalists continue to be prosperous. As a demon journalist I wish for Mark Edward Noonan, our American cousin, two things, that he have a long life so he can witness all the prosperity to come and that he live in interesting times.

[Journ.]

I took a well deserved, okay, forced, vacation after the election and now I’m back. The folks at Blogs4Victory are in a state of delusional grand mal rictus after the election defeat of Mitt Romney and I expected that much and worse. This is what I expected after proof that the far Right, the TEA Party element of States’ Rights Know Nothings, who will worship at the feet of Rush until the day they die, would be given proof at the polls that Mitt, despite being the whitest guy they could run, was in reality unelectable because he ran a schizophrenic and disjointed campaign. Romney had to cater to the bigoted far Right and appear to be a centrist at the same time. His disadvantage then wasn’t that he was simply politically out ground gamed by Obama he also was running as a candidate from two parties and neither one even if he got all the votes that they had would not represent a majority of the American electorate.

I responded to the above linked post at B4V with this to my dear friend in political argument Amazona a little while ago:

Amazona why don;t you explain to me why any of this matters to you? I’ve got a longer view of global history and of the future of America and it has been proven by this election as an extension of the election of 2008 that when conservatives allow themselves to show their true colors and speak their hearts they are exposed as a group that is antithetical to the ideals of American Freedom.
Yes Amazona I’m calling you a fascist but not because you secretly have an SS uniform in your closet. You would never admit being a fascist because being anything than a soldier loving American patriot cannot be tolerated in 2012 conservative America. And that’s the problem people like you that make up a full 40% of those who identify with the Republican Party who have cloaked themselves in the belief that States’ Rights are equivalent to want to “live by the values and laws as set forth in the Constitution” you have no idea how delusional and out of touch you really are. This may or not be ageist or even racist hell I don’t know but if you took the white lover 60 crowd out of the US by and large America would be the progressive prosperous nation that it deserves to be. Trust me Amazona this is no more harsh than the words of the man you voted for who wrote off 47% of the electorate in a speech that cost him any chance of being elected President.

So now angry at the Grim Reaper sharpening his scythe and even angrier that you calls to bigotry by the Koch Brothers have failed now you are going to ally yourselves with the most destructive elements in American business those CEOs who would ship their jobs overseas to save their personal lifestyles of lucre. Hell, I thought you guys were the ones who were on the side of the poor because of the religion thing? Man was I wrong! At least you live in a free enough country where you can rant and rave about crap that doesn’t mean anything [Hey when was the last time economic genius Mark Noonan wrote and article about bank failures or the collapse of the Chinese economy or . . ] in the great scheme of things. It’s gonna be a tough twenty years for you after the Democrats take back the House in 2014 and Hillary wins in 2016 and none of the doom and gloom predictions you love to make come true and America moves into another great age of prosperity.


In Hindsight

Amazona is a States Rights person of the ilk of those Southern governors of the 1940s though 60s who in the face of a changing America invoked their own race card. It’s a soft bigotry but a bigotry nevertheless. The good news is that as old and white as the conservative movement has become in the face of the browning of and the resurgence of the liberal electorate in America the time for her kind is growing short.

Pax Terra!
