KEYES: The GOP: Should True Conservatives Leave It Be? (Part 1)

Barb Wire

And one scribe came and said to him, Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” And another of his disciples said to him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.”And Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their dead.” (Matthew 8:17-22)

In Kathy Shaidle’s recap of the “hottest discussions on the air” for Friday, May 9 she quotes Rush Limbaugh, speaking of the Southern Poverty Law Center as the “real hate organization” whose “hatred is for anything Republican or conservative.”

I found myself wondering about the “or”.

I mean, does the SPLC include any person or group in the GOP that stands against some element of the Obama faction’s agenda for America?

The “Log Cabin Republicans” are so named on account of the demonstrably false inference that Abraham Lincoln’s stand for Declaration principles implies support for the organization’s agenda. The organization touts conservative positions on economic issues, but supports law-enforced acceptance of equality for homosexual behavior, including the so-called right to “same-sex marriage”.

This is contrary to the obligation of natural law from which all parental rights derive, and in violation of the prohibition imposed by the 9th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The 9th Amendment says simply that “the enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” Since rights they retain they already possessed without the Constitution’s authority, the unalienable rights endowed by the primordial authority of their Creator are the first and most obvious species of right the U.S. Constitution cannot be construed to disparage or deny.

This species of right includes all property rights derived from the information and activity of our individual bodies (including intelligent thought.)

Yet the proposed redefinition of marriage to include homosexual relations involves allowing government to fabricate and impose specious rights that deny and disparage the unalienable right of all human individuals to recognize and claim the belongings that are properties of, or derived from, their individual bodies. It therefore involves poisoning the individual’s unalienable property right at its very root.

This is why Marx and Engels, the progenitors of materialistic communism, targeted the natural family for destruction.

It turns out, therefore, that the “Log Cabin Republicans”’ claim of economic conservatism is a false pretense, whether they admit it or not. Do the leftist at the SPLC see through it? Is that why, despite the organization’s supposedly conservative economic views, they don’t treat it as hateful?

Perhaps the SPLC realizes that smashing the natural family is the more important objective, because doing so pulverizes the conceptual basis for individual private property?

This suggests that we should at least entertain the possibility that the SCLC’s hatred is reserved for any person or organization that understands and consistently applies conservative principles, regardless of whether it is Republican. The organization hates whatever persons or groups consistently adhere to and apply the logic that justifies the conservative views and actions.

Recognizing that the self-contradictory nature of groups like the “Log Cabin Republicans” means that their conservatism is a false pretense, they leave them be.

The anti-republican quislings who presently have a stranglehold on the GOP in Congress and the national electoral process, are collaborating with Obama to promote practically every policy by which he and the elitist faction he serves aim to subvert and overthrow America’s representative, Constitutional republic.

In this respect, the GOP is also an organization that makes a pretense of being conservative, while working in fact to smash the foundations of the understanding and way of life true conservatives mean to conserve.

Those who hate anything truly conservative are intelligent enough to leave such organizations be, knowing that they are like land mines in the conservative path.

Tragically, most conservatives seem to lack the good sense to read and understand the lesson of this behavior. They go on wasting their time, material resources and moral energy on the GOP quislings even though pretty much all the evidence of their experience for the last decade and more suggests that, however ironic it may seem, they should do for love of self-evident truth what those who hate the truth are doing for the sake of their lies.

They should leave the quislings be.
