The left's most potent weapon is that fact that most on the right are too polite to call them what they really are.
If we ever gain the courage to simply tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about how Satanically evil they are they will melt faster than the Wicked Witch under a waterfall.

Sentimental Lady was originally recorded on Fleetwood Mac's album Bare Trees. A more polished version was included on his solo album French Kiss.
This was Welch's biggest hit. You can hear Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham doing backup vocals.
Another very popular song written by Bob Welch while he was with Fleetwood Mac was Hypnotized.
Mr. Welch gave his wife the last gift he would ever be able to give her when he took his own life to spare her the pain of having to care for him while he slowly died.
These things tend to come in threes. First Doc Watson, now Bob Welch. I wonder who's next.

Ever wonder who is is on the opening montage of the Glen Beck show who says “I want the people of America to be able to work less for the government and more for themselves."?
It is president Calvin Coolidge, speaking from the White House grounds in 1924
This is what Calvin Coolidge thought and this is how he governed. This is why you will not find him on any typical historian's list of the greatest American presidents.
The academy has a symbiotic relationship with the government. The government funds the educational establishment and the educational establishment reciprocates by providing the intellectual foundation for ever larger, more intrusive and more expensive government.
Would it not be wonderful if men who thought this way could once again come to dominate the government of the United States.

Nation doges bullet.
[. . .]
This last is truly monumental. When no longer forced to belong to - and finance - a union large percentages of workers simply dropped out. On his radio show this morning Glen Beck predicted that if Walker won this election that at least one third of those Wisconsin public sector workers who remained in the unions would withdraw as well. I tend to agree with him, but we will have to wait as see.
For now what is important is that in a state which voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008 a Republican governor who had earned the bitterest possible hatred from public employee unions (one of the most important of the core constituencies of the Democrat party) won a decisive victory in a recall election, something no US governor has been able to do before.
