Another election has come and gone and once again the GOP has demonstrated their uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
As I watched the vote totals updating in the battleground states, it became apparent very quickly that the GOP establishment template of “Democrat Lite”, would once again fail to prevail. When will they ever learn?
I thought back to a column I wrote in 2005 and realized it is just as relevant (if not more so) now as it was then. What follows is the original article:
I recently returned from the Colorado Rockies after an invigorating vacation. The tranquility of those majestic mountains, added to the fact that for several days I was removed from the news, the internet and indeed the toils of life allowed me a chance to step back from it all.
America’s worst enemy

“We have met the enemy… and he is us” …Walt Kelly
America’s greatest enemy is willful ignorance; or is that willful political correctness.
On November 5, 2009, Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan, an American Muslim of Palestinian descent, opened fire on unarmed soldiers and their families at the Fort Hood Soldier’s Readiness Processing Center. They were there to receive routine medical treatment immediately prior to and on return from deployments. The Major who was wounded during the action became paralyzed from a gunshot wound. He is currently awaiting trial by court-martial for 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder. His trial date is August 20. An additional count of murder of unborn child under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act and Article 119a of the Uniform Code of Military Justice has not been filed at this time. We can only suspect why.
