Foley is SICK...And the politics of Children's Safety.

Okay, so by now I am sure you have heard something about the Republican congressman that e-mailed or instant messaged a young male page. The content of those messages was rather explicit, on occasion, and definitely showed some inpropriety on the part of Foley.

Let me preface the following paragraphs with this bit of information. I have no problem with homosexual people. I do not in anyway support their lifestyle or their choice in partners, but, as a whole, as it pertains to the individual person, I do not hold ill will or other prejudice towards homosexuals. I would rather they choose the natural order of things and love the opposite sex, but I do not have that power. So, to be straight and clear, I do not hate or judge or discriminate against gays, lesbians, or homosexuals in general. I don't agree with their choices. That doesn't make me a bad person. I disagree with their opinions on certain issues.

So, that being said, I want to say that I think Foley is sick for abusing his position of power to coerce a teenage boy into a homosexual relationship. The whole story is sick and dispicable. His solicitation of a homosexual relationship from a young boy is wrong on every level. I think Foley is sick and I am glad he resigned. If he committed any crime, throw him in jail! Throw away the key.

Now, what is almost as bad as Foley is the liberal left's handling of the situation. A group funded by billionaire liberal whacko George Soros had the incriminating documents as early as April of this year. Instead of turning it over to authorities immediately, they held it until we are just over 1 month from election time. Makes sense, right? Use a scandal to regain the House and Senate.

Why not?

I will tell you why not. I will also tell you why our country cannot afford to allow this tactic to work.

First, this evidence was not just some incriminating documents...this was proof of a child/sexual predator. So, they held evidence that could stop one young man from being taken advantage of, and possible prevent future abuses, for political gain. Makes you wonder what they would NOT have hidden. Is there any level at which the left will not hide evidence until it suits their needs?

Its scary to think what they might cover up until it is politically beneficial, no matter how much suffering and pain and criminal activity may ensue by their irresponsibility. Do you think that information that could prevent a terrorist attack would be immune from being held up if the liberals thought it could help their cause?

Second, the liberals are always trumpeting their support of gay rights and NAMBLA and such. Yet, they don't care to throw gays under the bus when they think they can step on them to move forward. The democrats are threatening to out gay republicans and go after any gay person to hurt the rebulicans as we go toward the election. Their hypocrisy is scary.

I really think that anyone who held documents that incriminated Foley should be arrested for obstruction of justice.

I hope the voters can see the truth through the smoke screen of the left and the liberal media. I hope they don't give the power of the US Congress to a bunch of cut-and-run, never-get-the-job-done, raise-your-taxes, throw-gays-and-minorities-and-anyone-we-choose-under-the-bus-when-it-suits-our-needs liberals.

Then again, there is only so long that the loud, obnoxious screams of the liberal media and Hollywood will stay ineffective. Perhaps this November will be painful for the Conservative cause...and only the new media of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity will point out the obvious problems with this situation.

About Me...And This Blog Site...

My name is David A. Ebert, the oldest of two siblings produced by my parents, Leah and David G. Ebert. We are all Republicans, but I take it a toke or two...well, closer to 10 tokes...further than my parents,

I am very much a Right Wing Conservative. I am a Reagan Conservative. I believe Americans, in general, are smarter than elected officials in Washington, DC. We should be more in charge than the Government.

We, as individuals and families, should have more responsibility over our own, hard-earned money and not send more and more and more taxes to the out-of-touch politicians. I believe the government is there to serve us, and not us to serve them.

I believe in America's greatness and that, overall, we are the most generous, forgiving, intelligent, and genuinely decent country in the world. I also believe that we are the most powerful nation in the history of the world, but do not use that power to hold over the collective heads of other nations.

I believe that low taxes, intelligent spending of those tax revenues, strong initiatives on defense and education, and small government influence on the day-to-day lives of Americans are some of the most important ideals related to how the US should be operated.I believe in the freedoms granted by the US Constitution. I believe that judges should uphold and interpret the laws as written in the US Constitution, and not refer to any foreign legislation to make their historic decisions.

I believe the First Amendment, as well as the entire Bill of Rights, are the most important laws this world has ever seen.

I believe abortion is WRONG. I believe that homosexuality is WRONG. I believe that allowing anyone to publicly debate the possibility of lowering the age of consent, especially for young boys to consent to older men, is a tragedy of morality. I believe that organizations like NAMBLA should be publicly shunned and not given a platform to spew their harmful and dangerous rhetoric.

I believe there is a sad lacking in the ability of our nation to appreciate and accept self responsibility. We, as a nation, blame daddy, racism, sexism, classism, mommy, the mean teacher, the mean little league coach, the loud mouthed uncle, the financial status of the neighborhood in which we grew up in, and a million and one other reasons why we do not succeed. How often do we, as a nation, take the blame for our own mistakes? How often do you hear someone accept responsibility for their own mistakes? How often?

I am conservative. I am worried about the future of the country and the planet, especially if O-BOMB-A or Billary Clinton make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I will start posting my fears, my hopes, my ideas as they all relate to news and politics. I hope to open some eyes and change some opinions with my writings. Most of all, I hope you will read my words and be inspired to find the truth...and not rely on Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman or Katie Couric or Matt Lauer for your opinions. I hope you will break the mold and do something something that O-BOMB-A and Billary are afraid of you doing...
