There she stands like a queen looking down on her subjects from the steps of her summer palace in San Francisco in her designer suits and her $300 haircut. Her aging skin is pulled tight from the latest nip and tuck from the royal cosmetic surgeon. If you look closely, that plastic smile has a hint of a sneer.
I couldn’t applaud when Nancy Pelosi became the first woman Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Just knowing that she is now third in line to the presidency makes my blood run cold.
Madam Pelosi represents the worst of the political bourgeoisie. She and her colleagues now have a lock on the House and Senate. They chair every committee in Congress. They pretend to know what’s best for the rest of us, but they will never feel our pain at the pump when we have to raid the funds set aside for groceries and school supplies in order to fill up the family car. Madam Pelosi never visits these wretched places. She sends her driver and cook to the gas station and grocery store.
How dare she dismiss Congress without allowing a single vote on the energy bill!
She is now winking at her Democrat colleagues who are in trouble with their constituents. They can blame her – if they must – in order to get reelected. They can promise to go back to Washington and work to get the moratorium on offshore oil drilling lifted. They can promise to open up the few acres necessary to extract oil from the vast Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The end result will be the same. She will hold on to her power. Privately they will be kissing her ring!
Nancy Pelosi also represents the worst of the socialist party in this country that goes by the name “Democrat.” The biggest reason that party has survived after the take-over by the left wing is the brand name. If you strip off the label, all you have left is the tired old socialism/communism that has allowed potentates like Pelosi to rule the world over while their subjects struggle to survive.
Don’t take my word for it, check out the Progressive Caucus. “Progressive” is the euphemism for socialist. The Progressive Caucus is a spinoff of the Democrat Socialists of America. Its members represent about a third of the House of Representatives. They chair all the major standing committees. This is no accident! Nancy Pelosi was a founding member of that caucus. She left when she became House minority leader because it had received too much public scrutiny.
Until recently, the Progressive Caucus was hosted by the DSA-USA website. It now stands alone but the goals and objectives are one and the same. Bottom line: Democracy is the enemy of the masses who are too weak to fend for themselves. These “progressives” seek to use taxation and regulation to bring down the most productive members of society so that they can control them. They see the free enterprise system as unfair. It can stay – in name only – as long as they can manage it so that everyone will be equal to some arbitrary standard they set and enforce.
They tell us that they feel our pain, but they don’t care how much pain they have to inflict to keep themselves in power.
Their weapons are lies and hyperbole.
They lie when they try to make us believe that humans are the cause of global warming and we will die if we don’t give them the power to control us. They lie about the amount of oil that is available on this continent. They lie when they tell us we can’t drill our way out of this crisis.
To the extent that a crisis exists it is of our own making, and we can’t get out of it without drilling – at least in the short term.
Pelosi and her colleagues scoffed at the idea of a moratorium on the federal gasoline tax but they want to rob the national Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which could lead to a real crisis!
In the event of a national emergency, that reserve is vital to our survival! Will our tanks and our aircraft run on batteries? Not in this lifetime! How long an extension cord would you need for one of our warships?
Think twice about keeping Democrats in control of Congress and handing them the keys to the White House. The free enterprise system may not be perfect but it has made us the most powerful and prosperous country on earth. Do you really want to change all that?
