The Bushelvik Revolution?


A cursory knowledge of World History shows how the now defunct Soviet Union was born out of the Bolshevik Revolution, plunging that country and several others ‘annexed’ by the Soviets into decades of darkness and oppression.

One wonders if history will record how the hatred of George W. Bush was used to plunge America into the same type of darkness and oppression?

Much like the Bolsheviks, today’s Democrat Party tells voters how ‘evil’ the Bush administration is and promises them the sun, wind, moon and stars, if only they will elect the Democrats. In 2006, it worked and Democrats took control of both legislative houses of government. Republicans lost their spine, if they ever had it to begin with and ran like scared little rabbits every time the Democrats said ‘boo.’

A former member of the administration has released a book he claims to have written himself, excoriating the administration, immediately jumped on by Democrats in a positive way. Ignored is just who all the publisher of the book is tied to, far leftists who desire to recreate a Socialist America in the pattern of the now defunct Soviet Union.

Standing back and looking at the claims in the newly released book taints what little credibility Scott McClellan may have ever had. From news releases, the book appears filled with Liberal talking points that have been debunked time and again.

Such hatred of a President is a first in my lifetime. Even the avowed evil of Richard M. Nixon pales in comparison to the hatred spewed towards George W. Bush. The hatred settled in as Socialist Democrats were forced to admit that Bush did in fact actually win the contested and very close 2000 election fairly. Denial set in almost immediately and ever since we have heard how Bush stole the election or he was “selected, not elected.”

The hatred appeared to subside for a short while after the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001, but didn’t stay subdued for long. Many Democrats who backed the President on going after Extremists and even advocated deposing Saddam Hussein in Iraq, decided to claim now they were “lied to” by the President, ignoring their many years of calls for the removal of the Iraqi Dictator.

The demonizing of George W. Bush had begun and spineless Republicans began fleeing from him, thinking only of their own retention of their lucrative elected office. In 2006, the years of effort came to fruition as Democrats swept back into Congressional Power. Spineless Republicans sat back and licked their wounds as they abandoned conservatism and conservative leaders.

Now Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D. Ca.) ran on a policy of “A New Direction” bashing Bush, the War on Terror and conservatism in general. Campaign promises of “getting Bin laden” and “doubling the Special Forces” have been long thrown out. Efforts to withhold funding of our Troops in Harm’s Way have failed, but cries of the Troops failing have prevailed, leading up to her giving credit to Iran for the success seen in the ‘surge’ under General Petraeus.

Democrat candidates for President waste no time piling on Bush for failing, setting up an “Imperial Presidency,” dividing the country and laying fault for every malady that has happened to the country at his feet.

The Republican candidate distances himself from the administration and plays ‘nice’ while the hatemongering Democrats push for more taxes and pander to voters who seem to have forgotten the freedoms and liberties America was founded on.

Democrats promise “free” medical care, higher minimum wage, government paid child-care, government bailouts if you make a bad loan, government required manufacturing goals, forced bio-fuels and much more are made, enticing voters into giving up more liberty and freedom to suck at the government teat. Traditional honors are ignored in the haste to win more votes by pandering.

Promises of securing our borders are abandoned and previously passed measures defunded as waves of Illegal Immigrants flow across our borders, some seeking a better way of life, some possibly intent on causing harm.

Through it all, Bush and Republicans shoulder the blame, not the Democrats who craftily undermine the very fiber of American society by pushing Socialist agenda after agenda through Congress.

Anti-war Democrats gloss over their real intent passing a GI Bill increasing college credits for a single enlistment, not revealing the measure has the potential to strip our Military of much needed experienced NCO’s, during a time of war and leaving the country poorly defended should another terrorist attack occur.

All of this is but the tip of the iceberg as Democrats slowly move America towards a cheap copy of the failed Soviet Union. Law abiding citizens are threatened with the loss of self-protection by efforts at gun control, while criminals are coddled as ‘victims’ of a non-Socialist Society. Gas prices soar while Democrats make measure after measure denying us the use of our own resources, leaving us even more dependent upon foreign oil sources or without adequate personal transportation, instead becoming dependent upon government supplied public transportation.

Under the guise of “Global Climate Change,” the public is brainwashed into believing doom is just around the corner if they don’t give up more freedom and liberty and of course, their paychecks in the form of increased taxes.

All the while, Democrats bray about Bush “fearmongering” about another terrorist attack, ignoring decades of attacks against the United States and other countries.

Those that serve in America’s Military swear an oath to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…,” with all too many failing to see just who the "domestic enemy" really is.

Voters seem to ignore our constitutional freedoms and liberties and just like the Russian Peasants that allowed the Bolsheviks free reign believing they would get something for nothing, vote in those promising to give them “free” entitlements in exchange for their vote.

I still wonder how history will record this "Bushelvik Revolution" as Democrats strip away our constitution and replace it with their Socialist agenda.

UPDATE 1: For the Bushelviks and those they have misled, The President Has Kept Us Safe
By THANE ROSENBAUM.

"Other cities around the world became targets: Madrid, Glasgow, London and Bali; the entire nation of Denmark; and, of course, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Here in America, however, the focus moved from concerns over counterterrorism measures and the abuse of presidential authority to the war in Iraq, the subprime mortgage crisis, the failing economy, the public meltdown of Britney Spears, and now, the presidential elections.
All this time Americans have been safe from suicide bombers, biological warfare and collapsing skyscrapers, while the rest of the world has been on red alert. And yet President Bush is regarded as the worst president in American history? Sorry, I must be missing something here

I nominate Scott McClellan for Medal of Freedom

Lew Waters said...

Spoken like a true Bushelvik, Taylor.

Most of us know from everyday life that dealing with success is relatively easy, while confronting defeat is far more difficult. It is but an aspect of all human experience. Yet the dire physical reality and mind-wrenching agony of a lost cause for which the very soul is given, and the personal despair that inevitably follows, is a devastating ordeal that reveals much about the human psyche. Such it is with few remaining supporters of the Bush administration.

Lew Waters said...

Again, Taylor, you epitomize Bushelvism.

Like Obama, you spew verbiage endlessly while saying nothing at all.

Like your newly ordained hero, Scott McClellan, you will soon find yourselves standing alone wondering why you have nothing.

Again, I thank you for supplying two decent examples of the Bushelvik attitude.

—“Is America turning left?”.

Having recaptured Congress last year, the Democrats are on course to retake the presidency in 2008. You can blame the destruction of the vaunted Republican machine on the ideological excess and breathtaking incompetence of the Bush administration, as well as the sleaziness of the G.O.P. leadership in Congress.

George W. Bush failed to fulfill the conservative agenda. The president is a lame duck but not a good scapegoat, because “rather than betraying the right, he has given it virtually everything it craved, from humongous tax cuts to conservative judges.

The worst political errors of the Bush regime, from its ruinous war in Iraq to the awful Terri Schiavo intervention, sprang directly from the brilliant minds of the religious right and the neoconservatives.

Now the American people seem to be reacting to conservative over-reach by turning left. More want universal health insurance; more distrust force as a way to bring about peace; more like greenery; ever more dislike intolerance on social issues.

Conservative activists are openly angry and depressed while Republican officials privately anticipate a “catastrophe” next November.

Lew Waters said...

I just love that you keep coming in and spewing your Bushelvism, Taylor.

The Republicans biggest mistakes were to abandon conservatism. If you will note, many of the Democrats elected in 2006 to replace weak kneed Republicans ran on somewhat conservative tickets, not big tax and spend liberalism.

Bush's biggest mistake was beliving he could reach out to Democrats and work with them, when Democrats have no real desire to work with anyone, only to further their goals of reinstituting communism in America.

Of course, they mask it as "progressivenism" and such other malarky, but their goals and actions nearly mirror those of hte early 1900 Bolsheviks.

Of course, complacent voters won't see that until one day they wake up and the liberties they used to enjoy are gone, all voted away for the "collective good."

I await your next example of Bushelvism, Taylor. Keep 'em coming.

"The Republicans biggest mistakes were to abandon conservatism." You are correct sir!

Radically restructuring government to create an unaccountable executive is not conservative. Building a security apparatus that is designed to spy on citizens is not a conservative principle. Runaway spending and bloated budgets are not conservative ideas. Torture and permanent aggressive wars are not conservative principles. Fearmongering and keeping the electorate scared is not a conservative principle.

Lew Waters said...

Nor is Ron Paul's notion of basically hiring mercenaries to go after enemies and otherwise, wait until they are amassed on our streets.

Conservatism isn't allowing thousands more of our citizens to be murdered before acting.

Conservatism isn't once again abandoning a struggling ally in their time of need.

The list could go on...

But hey, Bush stole my dentures!!

Lew Waters said...

Donald, can you think of anything in the past 7 years that didn't go so well that the Bushelvik Democrats haven't blamed on Bush?

I especially like that he was somehow supposed to have stopped Hurricane Katrina, while the Democrat Mayor of New Orleans and Democrat Governor of Louisiana received a pass for doing nothing to help those people they left stuck there.

Taylor1 said...

Donald, Here are some simple questons. They are not complex or equivocal. The information to answer is readily available. They do not require an explanation. However, I submit that you will not answer them without qualification.

When George W took office

1.) What was the cost of a barrel of oil?
2.) What was the unemployment rate?
3.) What was the National Debt?
4.) What was the dollar worth compared with the Euro?

And Today

1.) What is the current cost of a barrel of oil?
2.) What is the current unemployment rate?
3.) What is the current National Debt?
4.) What is the dollar currently worth compared to the Euro?
