The Wave Of Conservatism Has Started
I remember my grandfather telling me that politics is like the pendulum of a clock, it will swing left for a while than it will start to swing right, and then back again, I learned a lot from my grandfather. Well I am happy to say the pendulum has finally started to move in the right direction, thank God. Oh, it hasn’t reached here yet, but it is only a matter of time.
Seems like our friends down under, Australia, are starting the ball rolling, Reuters reports: Australia’s conservative leader Tony Abbott swept into office in national elections on Saturday as voters punished the outgoing Labor government for six years of turbulent rule and for failing to maximize the benefits of a now fading mining boom. It was a weary repudiation of ‘nanny state’ government. Australian’s collectively just said to the politicians, “Let Me up I’ve had enough!” And enough they have had. What was it that Aussie’s have had enough of?
“Much of this nannyism is being driven by the media who drum up hysterical reports demanding ministers do something. In turn, the government’s panicky PR obsessed apparatchiks respond with pointless and unnecessary laws and rules. Often duplicating those that already exist.” The new Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, campaigned on a platform of rolling back such universal vestiges of statism, including Carbon and Mining taxes, unregulated immigration and runaway spending, gee that sounds familiar.
When I first read about this I was a little confused, you see down under they call Conservatives, Liberals, so I had to read it over a few times before I got it straight. However, make no mistake about it, Conservatives are now in power in Australia, people are fed up with the party of big Government and entitlements for all, gee, that sounds familiar too.
I know you Liberals out there are saying “So what, it’s only one country” yes it is, but let me bring your attention to another country, Norway, that’s right, Liberal Norway has now gone Conservative. Erna Solberg was elected the Conservative Prime Minister of Norway, She is nicknamed “Iron Erna” for her robust views when she served in the cabinet between 2001 and 2005. She said, “We will give this country a new government.”
It is the same story throughout history, Progressives get into power by promising the world to everyone, people fall for all the Bull Shit, Progressives get into power, the country starts to fall apart, then they turn to Conservatives to make things right, it’s been happening for thousands of years.
Ms Solberg told supporters in Oslo: “Today the voters have produced a historic election victory for the right-wing parties. We will give this country a new government.” As she voted, Ms. Solberg told reporters she had “been working for four years, intensively to build a wider and stronger platform for the Conservative Party.” She also said that she wanted to “reduce some of the world’s highest tax rates to give the private sector more breathing room.” Another thing that sounds familiar.
Make no mistake the Conservative wave has started, it hasn’t reached here yet but with an incompetent President and a country in decline it is only a matter of time. Once again the Conservatives will come to the rescue. Like I have always said, Liberal policies always sound good in theory, but when it comes to reality, never works.
Liberals need to step aside for the second coming. It’s about time.
