The Republicrats and Demoblicans
Radio talk show host Michael Savage refers to the Democrats as the “Demoncats”. That’s pretty close and I love the way he can come up with alternate names for people, such as “Upchuck Schumer” for Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. (For more alternate names on what people and things should be called, see my blogpage at Marcus E. Harvey Online.) However, I think “Devilcrats” has a better ring to it.
When the ’Publicans, however, act like the Devilcrats, it makes me think we ought to call them the “Republicrats.”
My dream would be to see the destruction of the Devilcratic Party. No, I’m not a one-party absolutist type who wants no dissent or democratic debate. However, I would rather see our two-party choices be between Republicans and conservatives. Between conservative-lite and real-conservativism. Heck, even between Republicans and Libertarians.
The imploding Democratic Party should simply join the Libertarian Party. The Devilcrats currently claim to be the party of fiscal responsibility, worried about deficits and spending, that is, until they ever got back into power. Howard Dean even tries to sound conservative by talking about smaller government and privacy from the government. That almost sounds Libertarian. If the Democrats would truly become the party of smaller government, I could almost become a Democrat. The Libertarians also favor the legalization of marijuana and prostitution. The Libertarians are against the Iraq War. I don’t see why these policies are a problem for the Devilcrats. If the Devilcrats could give up their big-government program solutions, perhaps they could join with the Libertarians.
But what Devilcrat would ever want to abolish the IRS as the Libertarians do?
Right now, however, we have Republicans who are gutless-wonders, killing every conservative idea to come through Congress, out of some fear of the liberal media or the Devilcrats or something. (Witness the recent dropping of ANWR drilling and now dropping the vote on spending cuts.) For this cause, we really have two very similar political parties in the country, leaving us with little difference in our political choices: the Republicrats and the Demoblicans.
That’s why I call for a new two-party structure between Republicans and conservatives (or even Libertarians). We need real choice rather than our current options of Democrats and Democrats-lite (i.e. Republicans).
Disaffected Democrats, join the Libertarian Party.
