It’s Time To Hold Progressives To Their Own Standards

Once the president started to delay, change and ignore parts of his own law, Republicans should have gone straight to court to force Democrats to implement the law as written or repeal it. They wanted it, they wrote it and they passed it – they should be made to live with it. - Derek Hunter/Townhall

...I’d like to see conservatives play the game progressives play, the game Allan engages in. One where when someone searches for him long after he passes, stories of his vile, hateful public tweets are first results returned. May the words he sent out into the world be a scarlet letter that follows him the rest of his days. And the same goes for every progressive hypocrite who routinely makes racist, sexist, homophobic, hate-filled remarks, or cheats on their spouse, engages in corruption or refuses to live up to the standards they impose on others.

Distasteful as is seems, this is the world progressives have created in politics today. The high-road has a nice view and a strategic advantage in a traditional battle, but we’re in a guerilla war. Conservatives have to decide if we want to win or have the satisfaction of righteousness while liberty is stripped away.

What does this guy have to do with Obamacare? Well, like the tagline for the great HBO series The Wire said, “It’s all connected.” Holding progressives to their own standards, their own rules, is the best way to win. Be it some lone hatemonger in California or a whole party and the law they bribed through Congress, maybe we should hang their actions over them like a cloud every single day so there is no doubt who they are and what they want. These are their rules, not mine.
