Have you ever watched that sci-fi TV show “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and been introduced to that race known as the Borg? “We are the Borg”, they would say. “You will be assimilated!” That’s kind of what it’s like in politics, mostly from the liberal persuasion. The liberals remind me of those bullies in school who like to make fun of others who don’t think like them. The only way you’ll be accepted is to conform to their way of thinking and if you don’t you become subject to beration, teasing, picking, and, well…bullying. The liberals have a take-over sense of mentality and if you don’t conform to their way of thinking, you are considered part of the lunatic fringe; you’re a freak, an invalid, a misfit. The libs. love to point the finger at conservatives and Christians to accuse them of wrongdoing but look the other way when they are caught up in the same accusations (I advise you to read “You Don’t Say” by Fred Gielow to see the evidence of liberal hypocrisy). The liberals/Democrats love to criticize everyone for what they say or do and don’t bat an eye. However, let a conservative or, even worse, a Christian criticize someone, and listen to the outrage. Ted Kennedy or Hillary Clinton will say some off-the-cuff remark and the libs. shrug it off. On the other hand, let Rush Limbaugh or Ann Coulter say something they don’t agree with and, oh my goodness! “Rush Limbaugh is a racist! Ann Coulter has no compassion! Sean Hannity is mean!” The libs. get up in arms about Fox News giving a balanced newscast, calling it “conservative” and “biased”. However, the libs. have had control over ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and the like for decades giving their liberal slant on the news everyday. The liberals think the only point of view that matters is their own.
The problem, however, lies not with the liberals. The problem lies with the Republicans, conservatives, and so-called Christians who seem to be joining the ranks of the liberal elites. As I am writing this, I am aware of one-time Republican, Arlen Specter, joining the ranks of the Democrats. This isn’t surprising since Mr. Specter hardly resembled a Republican during his years in the party. Others include Newt Gingrich, Colin Powell, even Michael Steele, in whom I was disappointed when he started spouting off the same liberal talking points not long after he became the head of the RNC. In this day and time, it is becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between a Republican and a Democrat or between a conservative and a liberal. The conservatives are being assimilated into the ranks of the liberals. I’m afraid that if the trend continues as it is today, soon there will be no conservatives or Republicans; they’ll go the way of the dinosaurs.
Those of us who are Christians shouldn’t be following a political party, anyway. We should follow the instructions contained in the Word of God (the Bible). I’m not saying Christians shouldn’t vote, as that is our privilege as American citizens. However, we shouldn’t vote for someone who is morally-impaired. In other words, we should vote our principles, not consensus.
We should continue to fight for our rights in this country and uplift the standards that our Founding Fathers set up in the founding of this country. Finally, if you are going about your business and happen to encounter the Borg’s ship, fight with whatever you’ve got to keep from being assimilated.
