Go Left Go Right

What makes two people who grow up in a similar environment become so politically different? This is very perplexing to me. Where I live here in central California, a candidate who I went to grade school with, remained in touch during our college years, and road tripped together a few times, is challenging the GOP incumbent, Jeff Denham. I am going to refrain from posting his name here, but he has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and the CSEA. Just do a quick google search, and he will pop up.

Everyone who has spent more than one second reading my blog is fully aware that I am a very conservative Christian guy. I grew up in a conservative, two parent home. My pop owned his business, and mom stayed at home. The guy that I went to school with, partied with, and did typical guy stuff with all those years ago, had a very similar upbringing. So why did I see the light of the right he went to the darkness of the left?

I don’t have the answer. I don’t know why folks think that abortion is not murder. I don’t know why folks want to reward criminals with free citizenship. I don’t know why folks believe medical insurance and medical care is a right. I don’t see why folks don’t understand that the more government is involved in the private business sector, the more expensive it becomes and the quality declines.

As the election draws near, I will post some of the acts I witnessed first hand that he will have to answer for. I have been contacted by a chapter member of the GOP that wants to hear what I witnessed. I am a bit torn, Jeff Denham is not a conservative; he is pro amnesty and mandated healthcare guy. But he is not a progressive.

    If you really want the answer, all you have to do is ask.
    I believe that right to life of “life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness” is meaningless if you can’t afford a medical procedure to save it. (and you can ask Ronald Reagan why he made emergency room healthcare a legal right)
    I believe that a clump of cells the size of a pin head is not a person – so removing it from the body is not murder.
    I believe that if free market is left unregulated, a lot of industries will naturally turn into monopolies and oligopolies as companies will buy up and merge with competitors to lower their costs – but as they get rid of competition, the more expensive their products become and the quality declines. (Have you used Comcast?) Eventually business will merge with the government, and everything government would do would benefit the big business. Oh, right, we pretty much already have that.

      Thanks X, but I don’t understand. And I am to the point where I am looking to move to an area of like minded folks. Thinking out loud, I am starting to believe this grand experiment our Founding Fathers started, is running its natural course. Corrupt people have gained control of the country and they want power and wealth. This has been going on for a long time and it is not a dems good repubs bad thing…or vis a versa. I have another 35 plus years left on this planet, and I just want to enjoy life and have the Feds out of my life.

    To List of X. In regards to Comcast not having competition, are you aware that the cable companies were granted monopolies by the government? Yes they were. All of them have designated territories. It was done so there would only have to be one cable covering each square mile of America, and not many as would be the case had there been competition. Comcast, Cox, and the others are monopolies hypocritically condoned and encouraged by big Government.

    In regards to corrupt politicians, they exist because we the people have become apathetic to politics. We are too comfortable letting our elected representatives do what they want. If we the people were involved and wrote, phoned, e-mailed our Reps on a regular basis on bills being voted on they would behave differently. Politicians need police just as we do. The difference is that “we the People” are the police who must be involved in every move our Reps make.

    Conservative Hillbilly makes an excellent examination of conscience about the difference between the Left and Right and what makes them different.
