A Post-Primary analysis from a Christian perspective

Wednesday, September 15, 2010 (9:20 am)

by Bill Wilson, The Daily Jot

The aftermath of the Tuesday primaries across the country is being discussed and analyzed by all the pundits. Headlines say that TEA Party supported candidates scored big in New York and Delaware with New Hampshire still in the balance and added to victories in Utah, Nevada, Kentucky, Colorado and Alaska. Establishment Republicans–translated moderates and liberals–are beside themselves as they are seeing their grip on the party slip away to the unrefined, unsophisticated TEA Party neophytes. Democrats see their only hope in November of maintaining the socialist status quo being hoisted upon the dividing block between stubborn Republicans who will never support one another.

Former President Bill Clinton said it best, as reported by Associated Press, that the Republican Party is pushing out pragmatic voices in favor of candidates that make former President George W. Bush “look like a liberal.” This is a very astute observation by the former philanderer of state. By George W. Bush’s record, he is a liberal–compassionate conservatism is liberalism in disguise with a very few conservative trimmings to keep conservatives in the big tent. But Clinton’s remarks show just how far left the debate has shifted on contemporary politics in America–when a true conservative candidate cannot win an election without being chastised as a non-pragmatic radical.

TEA Party candidates are relying on the common sense and decency that is part of being called an American to propel them to victory in November. The TEA Party is about as close to anarchism this country has seen since the volatile 1960s. Only these are not radical communists, but rather peaceful Americans trying to take their country back. They are attacking the Republican Party because it is a party fractured by establishment liberals and grass roots conservatives. The Democratic Party is a party united in liberalism.To turn the country away from humanist socialist policies, the only political hope is found in pounding the stake of debate in the political ground far right and making others shift the debate toward it.

But there is another hope. That in this national debate of whether socialism is the new America, citizens might repent from from believing the lie that humanism can replace God. Jesus told us in Matthew 6:24, “No man can serve two masters…Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” The TEA Party wants to keep the debate on Constitutional and economic issues. All well and good. But let us not forget the wisdom of George Washington who said, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.”
