Past Time to Talk Turkey

Narcissisticby Anniel   6/10/14
I am having a terrible struggle trying to understand my role as a citizen in a totally lawless and dissolute society. Each morning I waken to face the latest depredations and scandals surrounding our leaders and their hatred of our land. I’m afraid I have Mitt Romney Syndrome. I want to be a “nice” person to everyone and I hate hating other people. But how does one avoid that when we are assaulted constantly by this administration and its supporters who haven’t one brain in their collective heads?

I have been making a study of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) in a vain attempt to try and understand what drives the mania for power and control in the people of this ruinous regime. How many malignant narcissists can possibly come together at the same time? We can begin with Barack Hussein Obama and continue with anyone under him. I’m not a psychologist, but anyone can Google the tell of NPD and check the list off to get a perfect picture of Obama, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, and all the aiders and abettors down the line.

The problem with narcissistic personality disorders is that there is no way to treat them. The people who have such disorders have no idea there is anything wrong with them. They love their glorious images, their grandiosity, their sense of entitlement, and their lust for power. They also need to be right, take no responsibility for their actions, or their lies. Lying is like breathing to these people. They open their mouths and projectile vomit the lies. They are truly evil.[pullquote]The people who have such disorders have no idea there is anything wrong with them.

Harry Reid is in a class of his own, unless Nancy Pelosi is as senile and addlepated as he is. Together the harm they have done to our country has been incalculable. How the other Senators can allow Harry to continue to spew his lies and hatreds on the Senate floor should be embarrassing to anyone who can still be embarrassed. Harry is a crook and everyone knows it.

Then there are the members of the opposition party. Oh, my goodness are some of them tone deaf and self-defeating. These are the usual RINOS. Once in a great while Boehner sounds like he gets it, then turns around and goes wonky and stupid all over again. Republican lies are paramount in the party, but the incumbents keep getting reelected. I wouldn’t give one red cent to the party for anyone or anything. Maybe to conservatives on an individual basis only.

And what are we to say about Paul Ryan? He did not even have the guts to stick to his guns on the budget and reducing the national debt. Now he is pushing amnesty again. I hope his political future is finally sealed and he sinks into the obscurity he so richly deserves. But he probably still has presidential aspirations.

I put Marco Rubio in the same boat with Ryan. It seems Republicans have as many idiots as Democrats. John McCain, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, how can we ever support any of them? Put them together in that boat and shove them out to sea. Let them find another place to destroy.

There are core issues that true conservatives can agree on. But we fail to articulate them in the right places, or in the right language. Somehow our message doesn’t get out. There are so many competing voices in the marketplace of political discourse and the statist solution is to destroy that marketplace protected by the First Amendment. Conservatives think it should be open to all. But we expect others to behave with integrity. It doesn’t happen that way. We need to talk turkey with other alarmed citizens, but how do we effectively get our word out to the most people?

I’m going to make a confession here. I have a dream in my head where
Dr. Ben Carson, an honest man, runs for president, and chooses Allen West, another honest man, as his running mate, if only to see how blacks would react to such a ticket. Just how far would racism charges go in such a scenario? And I don’t think either Carson or West would ever not utilize the Vice President in very effective ways.

Obama, the man who was elected President of this great nation, based everything he said on ephemeral lies that appeared attractive. He has been many times over exposed for the Narcissist and liar he is, and none will stand against him as he continues his lazy and feckless way to destruction. Now we know where the just as lazy and feckless cowards in the Congress stand as most of them squander every principle of righteousness they claim to uphold.[pullquote]Once in a great while Boehner sounds like he gets it, then turns around and goes wonky and stupid all over again.[/pullquote]

The leaders in the Executive, Supreme Court and Congress, the co-equal branches of government, have all sworn oaths to uphold and protect the Constitution and the Republic against all enemies, foreign and domestic. But many of them are oath breakers and the very domestic enemies we need protection from.

All this while foreign enemies are among us and others knock forcefully at our door.

What a shame it is that so few men stand on principle. And so this nation is led by fools and simpletons. Statesmen and oath keepers need not apply.

What are decent, law abiding citizens to do? Sign another petition? Attend another meeting? Does anyone have an answer? • (1224 views)

    Oh my. Thank you for that laugh, Anniel.

    Make that two belly laughs.

    Well, Virginia voters showed one thing that can be done — Eric Cantor lost 5-4 in his primary despite an overwhelming financial advantage. The grassroots don’t defeat the Establishment often enough, but as long as it can happen at all, there is still some modicum of hope. And the defeat should serve as a warning to the rest of the House leadership (and members).

    Unfortunately, I think the perks and attention gained by political success attract narcissists, and the power attracts sociopaths, so the only way to deal with them is to vote out those who expose themselves as such. The careers of Barry Screwtape Obama and Harry Wormwood Reid show how difficult that can be.

    The best way to avoid hating too many people is to make sure never to hate anyone (not even the Wicked Witch of the West) merely because you disagree with them. Even a socialist can have a good point (albeit very rarely). But it’s proper to judge them on their behavior. In particular, for those who preach hatred of conservatives as a group (as most liberals and Democrats do), it’s reasonable to return that hatred ten-fold (which is my natural inclination).

    This applies to other forms of bigotry as well. Iago Carville mocked Paula Jones as “trailer park trash”, saying, “If you drag a twenty-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll get.” One of my closest friends was then living with his parents in a trailer park, and I reasonably took Carville’s comments as in effect calling his mother a whore. I have no intention of ever forgetting that.

      Yes, a nice surprise. The flood of illegal immigrants could be one of the few issues that can rally Americans against the status-quo Republican Establishment — and maybe even get them to wake up to the Left who enjoys flooding this country with illegal aliens because they think America got its wealth off the backs of the poor. So this is just payback. It’s “social justice.” (Speaking of which, Kevin Williamson has a pretty good article: Catholics Against Capitalism. He slips in a few mild libertarian or secular absurdities, but it’s mostly pretty sound.)

    Having come from that milieu himself, one can only guess he was projecting his personal home experience.

    It’s so frustrating to watch friends who refuse to see. And then there is the problem of the people who think their life of privilege will continue forever. How do they think that can possibly be? None of us will be the same after all that is being done to our country. I was pleased that Cantor lost, and the ruling against the teacher’s unions was another boost. I have to keep reminding myself that things change only if we stand together, which is what I love about stubbornthings.

    Does anyone have an answer?

    Annie, you know that I don’t do rhetorical questions. 🙂

    Mr. Kung would no doubt tell us that we have to work at the grassroots level and find and promote conservative candidates and hold their feet to the fire as they work their way up.

    I agree with that as a vital step. It’s sort of like making gunpowder. You have several vital steps or ingredients: charcoal, sulfur, and saltpeter. (And we all learned this not from science class but from Captain Kirk’s battle with the Gorn in the episode “Arena”.)

    Leave out any one of those three ingredient, and you can’t make gunpowder. I think it’s the same with igniting a conservative revolution. You need good candidates and you need to promote them and stay on them. But where do conservative candidates come from in the first place? You won’t find them watching Jon Stewart, Oprah, or even attending your typical college. The product of our culture these days is anything but conservative.

    Libertarians dabble at the idea that they are some kind of reform. But as Madge said to one of her patrons, “You’re soaking in it.” That is, much of the libertarian creed is just warmed-over liberalism with a few feints toward the free market and a supposed love for the Constitution.

    You make conservatives by educating them in traditional American history and conservative principles. And those principles must be self-consciously adopted. You will not get them from this culture by osmosis, although many principles will smack people right in the forehead as they begin a career, a family, and own a home of their own. It is then that the conservative realities of life will make an appearance on their own.

    Even so, you need a structured and logical system of thought to nurture and help remember those lessons that life teaches us. And it’s not enough to get up on stage and get lost in pleasing conceits, such as when Mitt Romney announced that he was “very” conservative. Well, “very” conservative people do not sign onto socialized medicine, as he did in Massachusetts.

    It’s possible that Mitt, John Boehner, and a number of these other Establishment Republicans really do think they are conservative. But it’s more likely that they are products of the Madge Effect (they’ve been soaking in Progressive culture, and picked up much of it in college). They don’t know what conservative is, but they’ve probably know that if they are a Republican and want to win elections, they ought to be one, or at least pretend to be one.

    So we have two major ingredients. We need conservative candidates and we need the mechanism to create and nurture the philosophical principles and support structures that help to create them in the first place.

    And if we are to match the gunpowder analogy, we need a third element. And that element would be citizen activism. As private citizens we need to find ways, large or small, to counteract the Leftist garbage being spread in schools, the media, and in the entertainment culture. Dare to have an opinion. Dare to tell a friend or colleague “I don’t agree with that. Here’s what I think.”

    There is no way this country gets changed for the better merely through politics alone. We must all, in ways large and small, be a cultural warrior.

    “What are decent, law abiding citizens to do? My answer was given in Mission: Take the GOP, and as Tim noted, we Conservatives took a step in that direction by giving Eric Cantor the boot yesterday. There are probably a lot of GOP Establishment-men shivering today, and that’s a good thing.

  7. Eric says:

    “What are decent, law abiding citizens to do? Sign another petition? Attend another meeting? Does anyone have an answer?”

    Get involved. Educate yourself on the goings on of our elected officials. Hitler once quoted: “How fortunate for leaders that men do not think”
    Start talking about the state of the town, state and country to your neighbors and friends.

    Dave Brat found out that a lot of people in the 7th district of Virginia were not happy with the state of our country. He educated people door to door on what their Rep. Eric Cantor has been doing to aid this sad state of affairs.

    It’s better to go door to door when there isn’t an upcoming election. Pick a topic ex. illegal immigration and the crony capitalist quest for lower wages.

    The time of sitting back and hoping/expecting that good people will rise and get elected to to lead the country is over. YOU are the good person that needs to step up.

    “The only thing necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke

    We have all been guilty of laziness when it comes to our civic duty and the state of the country is the evidence.

      Completely true, Eric.
