Deliver ‘US’ from Liberals
Gregory J. Rummo
Secretary of State Colin Powell visited the graves
of Kurds that were gassed
by Saddam Hussein in 1988 while liberals were still
pointing to the Bush administration’s inability to
find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
What is it that blinds these people to the obvious
truth that Saddam Hussein and his
henchmen were the bad guys, not George Bush, Dick
Cheney and their buddies in the oil patch?
It is the inability to distinguish good from evil.
I get e-mails from these people all the time. They
are a confused bunch. I asked one who
accused Bush of being a liar—an accusation he
insisted was proven—if he had voted for Clinton—found in contempt of court in the Paula Jones
sexual harassment case for lying about his affair
White House intern Monica Lewinsky. “Didn’t
everyone?” he wrote back.
No, everyone did not vote for Clinton. In fact
almost 6 out of 10 voted against Clinton in
both elections. Both presidential races were
three-way, the majority of the votes going to the
But why let the facts stand in the way of opinion?
Fuzzy-headedness over the distinction between right
and wrong is rooted in a rejection of
Most liberals reject true, life-changing faith in
God. Heaven forbid it should ever become the
lodestone guiding one’s moral compass. Even those
that practice a religion and attend a church insist
that their faith is something private, has no
rightful place in forming public policy and
never be mingled with matters of state.
So when it comes to the question of good vs. evil,
they are naturally flummoxed.
Is it any wonder?
These are the same people who winced when President
Bush used the phrase “axis of evil,”
in his State of the Union to characterize Iraq,
North Korea and any country that posed a terror
to the United States.
These are the same people who are always talking
about “the children,” yet they believe that
a woman’s right to choose means it’s okay to end
the life of an unborn child, for any reason or no
reason. The consequence of that play on words has
resulted in the deaths of over 40 million children
in America but it’s the pro-life crowd that is made
out to be the evil extremists.
These are the same people who clamor for condom
distribution in the public schools while
insisting it is perfectly acceptable for a school
official to take your minor daughter to a clinic
abortion without your consent. Those who point to
the steady rise in sexually transmitted diseases
believe that young men and women should be taught
abstinence are sneered at by the elitists.
These are the people who think they know better
than you about how to spend your
hard-earned money. So their vision of social change
takes precedence over your vision of how you
plan to provide for your family. They characterize
the president’s tax cut as something evil and all
who benefit from it as “the rich.”
These are the same people who hide behind specious
filibusters in the senate, denying floor
votes that would have confirmed several qualified
Bush appointees to the judiciary. Miguel Estrada
was the most recent casualty, disqualified because
he dares to be a practicing Roman Catholic.
Liberals just cannot stomach the thought of someone
with spiritual convictions interpreting the
These are the same people who send their children
to private schools while denying school
choice and vouchers to yours because long ago they
sold their souls to a monopolistic union that
symbiotically votes them into office again and
These are the same people who see nothing wrong
supporting the legal equivalence of the
union of two homosexuals with traditional marriage,
the institution that has been the foundation for
family and hence, all of western civilization for
several millennia. Anyone opposed is automatically
branded a homophobe despite the fact that most are
The wise King Solomon recognized this problem
thousands of years ago. I suppose he too
dealt with liberals in his day. He explained that
those who relied on their own brute intellect and
no place for God in their lives as a force to shape
opinions and make judgments would forever
wrestle with the concept of good vs. evil. He
wrote: “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord
and depart from evil,”—a huge challenge indeed to
those who can’t even recognize evil when they
