Democrats Marching Down the Road to Self Destruction

Scott Brown has won!  The Republicans can now stop the healthcare bill.  The constituents’ voices will finally be heard.  Wait the Democrats in the senate are pondering the use of a controversial legislative ploy called the “nuclear option” to ram the healthcare bill through.  This option would end the filibuster by invoking a point of order.  They then would only need a simple majority (51) to pass the bill.  Well so much for the dream of killing this bill.  You see what the tone deaf Dems don’t realize is that this loss in Massachusetts was a message sent to them from a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans three to one.  If they can lose there, they can lose anywhere.  And yet they continue to march their party down the road to their own self destruction.  Are they really this stupid or is there more than meets the eye to this strategy?
My feeling is that the party believes this is a time to make history.  But history is filled with as many blunders as successes.  This would be a blunder on a monumental level.  They’re just not willing to see it this way.  And like most progressives, they feel that they know what is best for us even when we’re screaming to stop the madness.  You see progressives are partisan ideologues that are willing to sacrifice the entire Democratic Party to advance their agenda.  It’s a shut up and color type of mentality.  To them a Brown victory is simply a speed bump in ramming their socialist healthcare program through Congress.  They will twist and bend the rules of the senate and violate the Constitution with their scorched earth tactics until they achieve success.
Part of me wants them to go this route because I know it will finally expose them for who they truly are.  It will destroy the credibility of the Democratic Party for years to come and conservatives will take back this country in 2010 with ease .  However the other part of me believes that the preservation of the Republic and Constitution are more important than any political party or the new progressive movement.  That it’s our duty to do whatever is necessary to stop the Democrats from using this option and pushing through this liberty taking away bill.  Nine out ten conservatives will choose the latter because it’s in our DNA.

You see we are conservatives first and because of that we believe in the traditional values and principles that built this great country.  Our party affiliation is only a secondary component in the scope of things.  Yes the Democrats are marching towards their own destruction, but unlike Democrats, we conservatives believe there are bigger things to be lost than a political party.  We believe that the Republic could be lost if we fail to stand up and stop this “nuclear option” and for us that is an unacceptable condition.  So we will stand firm and do everything in our power to stop the party in power from destroying themselves and try save the Republic and our individual liberties.
It’s the only “option” we have.

    Well said. There is a part of me that wants them to try. It will destroy them, but you are correct. I can't look at the suffering that their "victory" would cause and stand idle. Therefore, we fight the good fight, and try to maintain individual freedom, and our Republic that protects it.

    Thanks for the comment Matt. I don't think we have any other choice but to do everything we can to stop them from pushing this horrible bill through congress.
