Da Tech Guy catches up on Brett Kimberlin and Wisconsin, and makes the following observation:
With Wisconsin looking horrible and the National election starting to show signs of the cracks that have been obvious for a year the party has to go all in to keep 2012 from being a rout that shatters them on both a national and a state level.
The problem You can’t go “all in ” without the activists, and with the party as far left as it now is the activists are the people doing the very things that make the democrats unelectable.
You might be tempted to think that by having a representative government, we aggregate our individual wisdom and, as a society, make decisions that are orders of magnitude wiser than we would as individuals.
The behavior of the Left, and our government as a whole, seems to put that idea to rest. Instead, we’ve arrived at a place where even passing a budget, much less balancing the legislative joke that the budget had become, is “like, way too hahrd, dude”.
I submit that government idiocy is like a sine wave. We’re (hopefully) bottoming out now. If we learn anything from all this, a good lesson may be that secular organizations, political parties, and governments are simply not the places to go looking for human redemption. At best, these entities can minimize and stabilize the corruption present in every human heart. Hopefully, the current crop of Lefties represent the worst.
Let’s hear it for the Constitution and enumerated powers, shall we?
