No to the Democratic Left Defining Those on the Right

FBMeme_Being for God and Country

Oh, I like this Citizens for Freedom meme, but it does remind me of the success of liberal/lefty Democrats in projecting the beliefs stated in yellow on to the right thinking conservatives and Republicans. The one thing that was left out in yellow from decades ago is uncaring rich fat cats. Now most of the folks among my christian Democratic Party family and friends would object to being called anti-God and amoral even though they turn their head the other way on such super pro democratic issues as late-term abortion and promoting being gay as an alternative lifestyle to young school-age  children as you can read here.

One can find non believers in God in any political party, but there are Democrats who are making the effort to do away with God in their party’s platform. I remember the shock of hurt on my mother’s face in watching the Democrats boo God during their 2012 national presidential convention. As much as my mother loves certain TV preachers and prophecy teachers, she ignored them when they spoke on political issues, because they are all Republican and conservative. Today she has a hard time trying to ignore them and that it hurt for her to realize how far the Democratic Party moved away from the ways of God. 

When it comes to thinking for oneself, for me, it is about escaping group black think. I do not have to think a certain way because of the color of my skin. I am in that category of believing in, honoring and loving God and loving my country and the Democrats continue to be successful with the deep put down of those in that category. I still want to visit other countries, but do not want to live out my life as a citizen anywhere but here in the United States. What is wrong with that?The beliefs stated in yellow in the above meme are not representative of those on the right. We need to increase our preparation for success in keeping the Democratic left from being able to negatively define us on the Republican and conservative right.  

My Talk Radio Programs

Microphone_talk radioMy talk radio listening keeps evolving. There was a time when I could listen to one entire talker program on the liberal side. This was a local based talk show on Philly’s one and only urban talk radio station. The radio talk host is a liberal/lefty but he was a consummate professional. He had a chat room going while he program was on the air. He was always polite and respectful while disagreeing with my growing right-wing comments. He gave up his radio talk show to accept a reporter gig on TV program, Chasing New Jersey.

The station has one syndicated liberal/left talker, Al Sharpton. I now have a hard time listening to him for more than five minutes. I use to be able to put up with him for about 45 minutes. In my birth and growth as a conservative, I am about seven and half years along and now wondering as a thinking adult, how did I stay in the liberal/lefty camp for over thirty years of my life.

There are so many local and syndicated right-wing radio talkers these days. I find myself listening to some for a while and then turn to their competition for a while. I listen to the syndicated talkers such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham. I listen to local Philly talk folks such as Dom Giordano and Fox News exile, Dick Morris. I listen online to local talker, James T. Harris, because his program is on in Tuscon, Arizona. I listen online to other radio talkers, such as Herman Cain, Brian Kilmeade and delayed Mark Levin programs.

New to my regular online listening is Christian talk programming, such as Janet Parshall’s In the Market Place and Steve Deace. I really like Steve Deace. He use to be on a local Philly talk  station at his 9 P. M. broadcast time. I do not like that the station bumped him to 3 A. M., so I listen to him online. Mr. Deace discusses the political, social and cultural through a biblical world view.

I am participating in Steve Deace’s weekly (Republican) Candidate Survivor Island in where you vote for the possible Republican presidential candidates that you do not want to see as the 2016 Republican presidential candidate and eventually the next President. So far participants voted Gov. Chris Christie, Rep. Peter King, Jeb Bush and Haley Barbour off the Island. This evening I cast my vote for Donald Trump to be the next to go. If you want to participate, go here. You will have to give your name, email address and answer a few more questions, before you get to the page with the candidates’ names. You will have until next Monday in the afternoon to cast your vote and you will hear Mr. Deace announce who got the boot on his program later that evening or read it on his Facebook page or on Twitter.

I enjoy listening to the various individuals on the right. I do not  agree with them one hundred percent, but I find myself not agreeing with anything I hear coming from liberal lefties. This is a strong indication that I am really maturing in my right-wing thinking. 

This Week’s Cable News Ratings: Fox Still on Top

Lately when I listen for about 20 to 30 minutes of Al Sharpton’s radio show, I hear callers complementing him for his TV ratings for his MSNBC cable news program, Politics Nation. Mr. Sharpton is beating the competition, CNN and CNN’s sister station, HLN in the 6:00 P. M. (eastern) time slot. But all one has to do, is look at  all the numbers that represent viewers to see that it should still be pretty embarrassing for those at the non Fox News cable stations. Mr. Sharpton explains it away by saying that Fox News has a strong loyal right-wing base.

Well,  I do think it is true to say that people on the right are far more into news and politics oriented TV programming than people on the left.  MSNBC would love to have a strong left-wing loyal base, but that still has yet to happen. Fox News’s Bret Baier has more viewers by 5 points at the 6: P. M. time slot than CNN’s John King and MSNBC’s Al Sharpton combined.
