PJM Political

If you missed PJM political on XM this week, you can download the various segments including our interview with John McCain here. Also, be sure and take a listen to Evan Sayet’s speech at the Heritage Foundation on "How Modern Liberals 'Think.'" In the speech, Sayet discusses the book, The Closing of the American Mind by Allen Bloom in an entertaining and engaging fashion. Sayet's speech is definitely worth listening to.

I had already listened to Mr. Sayet's speech shortly after it was first made available. But I listened to it again, and I have to thank Dr. Helen for reposting it. I can find nothing in this speech to disagree with.

But anyone who thinks the current dilemma is anything new knows nothing about history. I refer particularly to the Gnostic heresy.

Basic Catholic doctrine, established some two thousand years ago, holds that the Creation is good, that God is a loving father, that his son Jesus is the savior of mankind, and that the Holy Spirit is the source for good in this world. Furthermore, the sacrament of marriage, which Jesus sanctified as the highest sacrament in His church, is one of a co-equal partnership--a male and a female forming a spiritual and physical union. That union is fully realized in the physical body of their child, who is a blessing. In this tradition, a father husband and a mother wife, in co-equal partnership, make a commitment and make a sacrifice to lift up their child to the greater glory of God. This ultimately is the central message of Christmas.

Along came the Gnostics, who argued that the Creation was not in fact good but evil, trapping the eternal essence of every thing in the prison dungeon that is matter. That God was not a loving father but in fact an evil archon or tyrant. That Jesus was not the Son of God but in fact an aeon or special power sent from eternity. That the Holy Spirit was not a source for good but continued slavery. And that all of this is revealed by gnosis or a secret knowledge that proclaims all that is true is really false. Jesus did not come to be the savior of mankind but to ignite this secret knowledge and thereby cast off the material world, freeing the imprisoned divine spark remnant in every material thing, so that all things can return to their original eternal essence and then all will be equal.

Some might recognize the above as the plot for the Matrix movies, which was really nothing more than a high-tech retelling of the Gnostic heresy. But more to the point.

Think feminism. Marriage is not a sacrament, a co-equal partnership. Oh, no, it's a prison! A master-slave relationship. A husband is not a loving father, no he's a tyrant! A wife is not a loving mother, no she's an oppressed servant! Pregnancy is not a blessing, no it's a disease! An embryo is not a baby, no it's a parasite! A child is not a blessing, no it's a burden! All of this is revealed by the secret knowledge now called progressivism. Thus, the progressive comes to ignite this secret knowledge and thereby cast off the evil imposed masculine hierarchy, freeing the oppressed feminine spark in everyone, so that they can return to their original essence and then all will be equal.

See how easy that is? See how clever that is? All you have to do is take the opposite and throw a fit. And yet this is what passes for intellect in progressive circles.

There is nothing new in any of this, progressivism or feminism. It's all part of the same simple-minded Gnostic heresy that's been repeating itself for thousands of years.

I'm a modern liberal and it has become apparent that every conservative spokesperson is an authority on my every thought.

Conservatives need to go with John McCain. I like Mitt Romney, but he could not win an election against Clinton or Obama. He could compete against Clinton because of her high unfavorables, but I think Obama would beat him. Oh, it has been fun seeing the Clinton campaign implode, and I think Obama will beat Clinton. I know, I know, in a colorblind society where merit should hold ultimate sway, OBAMA isn't even qualified to be assistant majority whip. He's missed a 1/3 of his votes during the 2005-2006 session, and he hasn't held a hearing as member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Sadly, America is not a colorblind society where merit holds ultimate sway. It is very sad that American's don't see the racism in voting for an unqualified candidate just because he is Black as a way to prove that America is sorry for its past. Sadly, the media will blast us when we attack him for the following policy positions:

1) Raising taxes on the middle class to fund social security (he wants to lift the cap to 115k)
2) Attempt to make it easier for employers who hire illegal aliens.,2933,285436,00.html
3) Indicating in 1996 that he supported a ban on manufacturing handguns.
4) Said the troops who died in Iraq were wasted lives.
5) While pretending he is moderate or independent, votes with the Democratic majority 95% of the time.
6) Does not think we should label the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization despite the fact they kill our troops.
7) voted present (the only present vote) on a bill banning adult shops near schools

Despite these positions, Romney would not beat him because Romney has already been presented to the public as a world class flip flop. Whether you think thats fair or not, the polls indicate its the truth. In any case, McCain is the only person with a legitimate chance to beat Clinton or Obama. I know we may not agree with him on everything, but when it comes to foreign policy, judges (I'll weigh his votes for Alito and Roberts over his gang of 14 compromise), and entitlements, I'll take him over a Democrat any day. McCain will play well amongst independents in the midwest, and he is popular throughout the Northeast.

Have you seen Survey USA's latest polls? Even in liberal bastions like Massachusetts and New York, McCain does extremely well against Obama. (Deval Patrick is a liability for Obama in Massachussetts)

I can't wait for Obama to be branded as the Affirmative Action president when civil rights initiatives that are similar to theo ne passed in michigan will be on the ballot all across America

gail: voted present (the only present vote) on a bill banning adult shops near schools

I'm not sure I understand this, does it mean he refused to take a stance on the issue?

Despite these positions, Romney would not beat him because Romney has already been presented to the public as a world class flip flop. Whether you think thats fair or not, the polls indicate its the truth.

I think this is a legitimate portrayal of Romney. He used to be a huge gay rights and abortion supporter and illegal immigration supporter, but starting in a 2004 debate he switched positions. McCain also has some poor policies, but at the moment I am leaning towards him. Last night Orson Scott Card (a Democrat and a Mormon) was filling in on the Rusty Humphries show and he was talking about the assassination of Bhutto. He thought Giuliani and McCain gave the best detailed answers, Obama and Romney gave good feel good speeches, while Huckabee and Clinton were awful.
